Kindle Pick of the Week: Stories I Tell on Dates by Paul Shirley

Everyone tells stories on dates. Sometimes we tell these stories to make people laugh. Sometimes we tell them to make people think. Sometimes we tell them so we can increase the chances we'll see the other person naked.

Paul Shirley played professional basketball. That by default means he has better stories to tell than we do.

His  stories are about an adulthood spent all over the world: living in Spain, playing in the NBA, and having his heart (and spleen) broken. But they're also stories about growing up in small-town Kansas: triumphant spelling bees, catastrophic middle school dances, and a Sex Ed. class taught by his mother. They're funny stories. They're vulnerable stories. Most of all, they're universal stories, just as the stories we tell on dates should be.

Paul is funny, he's sarcastic and he's smart. He also played basketball at my college, Iowa State, so that is more reason to download this Kindle version and read a little this holiday season.


Rick's Appearance on 92.9 The Game with Sam Crenshaw and Sports Holiday Gifts 12/17/17

I join Sam and Greg on Sunday Morning, Dec. 17, 2017 on SportsRadio 92.9 The Game, to talk some holiday sports tech gift possibilities.

What you can get at the last minute for the sports minded person on your list...

We discuss:

1. Airfree Tulip Air Freshener

Breathe clean air...
Airfree Tulip is the ideal solution for compact spaces, where design and wellness are essential in breathing fresh air. For just $239

Slim and powerful, the Airfree Tulip promises clean air and design that fits with your home décor.
This patented Thermodynamic TSS Technology destroys mold, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, pollens, pet dander, tobacco and other organic allergens.

2. SmartHalo Bike Sensor

$149 great for the biking enthusiast
Forget a rental car or a taxi: The best way to explore a city is often on two wheels. At the close of 2017, more than 60 U.S. municipalities are offering bike-share programs where at little or no cost, you can grab a bike and then return it when finished at any rack or station in the operating area. But how to know where you are going in a new city? SmartHalo is a sensor-like GPS device that attaches to any type of bike handlebar and pairs by Bluetooth with the SmartHalo app. While cycling, the phone stays in the pocket or the purse, and you get the fastest routes, answer calls and track fitness data.  

3.  CEP Compression Gear

CEP Compression is a world leader in performance compression socks and apparel. Perfect for travel and fitness themed gift possibilities in the new year. CEP has a big holiday sale ongoing, and they ship fast! Compression sleeves and socks are crucial for people who travel long distances and have to remain seated for long periods of time. When movement is constrained, blood circulation to the legs is restricted causing heavy legs, leg pain, swollen feet and ankles and even blood clots. Try the Recovery+ Pro Compression Socks.
