Rams cornerback Marcus Peters takes responsibility after ‘bad couple weeks’ in coverage

NEW ORLEANS – Rams cornerback Marcus Peters recently talked about his forget-it attitude when it comes to poor plays and poor games. A dose of amnesia is going to be needed in the coming days. There’s no pretty way to put it. Peters got torched Sunday afternoon by New Orleans receiver Michael Thomas, and he knew it. There’s little room to hide when the opposing receiver goes for a franchise-record 211 yards, so, to his credit, Peters stood up and did the Rams’ first postgame interview. Sign up ...

Caleb Sturgis struggles again, leaving Chargers’ kicking situation in further doubt

SEATTLE – His coach had given him a vote of confidence. His competition had been cut, and he’d been named the Chargers kicker, as soon as he could return from injury. But as Caleb Sturgis lined up for his first extra point on Sunday and shanked it wide left, all the hope one could muster for the Chargers kicking situation evaporated into the brisk Seattle air. From that first miss, it only got worse for the Chargers beleaguered placekicker, who missed another extra point, as well as his only fie...

The Unbreakable Bond of Love

    Saturday afternoon Chelsea came over for lunch and to catch up. She sat on the kitchen counter as I leaned against the kitchen sink. Hours later we were caught up, tummies full, adventures planned, happiness assured, married life bliss, mother proud. Even though Chelsea is 28 and Sacha 26 it is hard to believe at times that they are young adults living their lives away from our own. Yann and I have talked about the empty nest, that happened years ago, but there is something else that happen...

French Story Books for Children in English

  Chelsea and Sacha a year ago, right before Sacha left for Seattle.       A blog reader of mine asked me about French gifts for her grandson who is four years old. I thought I would add my list of gift ideas (books) for children here on my blog. With that said my mother would suggest that the best gift to give is the gift of spending time with a child by playing with them, cooking, and or simply hanging out with them. Reading was one of my favorite things to do with Chelsea and Sacha. Reading ...
