All teams want that trophy! Learn more at

We’re sixteen days from the launch of the NFL 2015 campaign. If you’re an NFL fan, then you — like me — are unavoidably thinking that this is the year for your team. Don’t lie, fool, I can tell you’re thinking of a possible 10-6 record, maybe even 12-4, a trip to the playoffs, a couple of […]

Vote on the Krakens helmet for THE CHAMPION

Galactic Football League Book IV is THE CHAMPION, and you can vote on the helmet in this YA / young adult series.

Junkies, sometimes teams update their helmets. Your favorite NFL team’s lid has likely gone through a few changes: some are dramatic, some are subtle. The Ionath Krakens are considering a helmet re-design for the 2686 season, and team owner Gredok the Splithead has decided to leave it up to you, the fan.

We’ve had problems with overzealous fans “stuffing the ballot box” in previous polls, so you have to have a registered profile to vote. You get one vote. We’ll check IPs if we have to (but we don’t want to). We love you all, but you’re crazy with the ballot-box stuffing, so get your one vote in and let the fans decide!

1) Sign into your account on this site (or create one by clicking here).
2) Put a comment on this post with one of the following choices: Current, Modified #1 or Modified #2

We’ll close the poll at midnight Eastern time on Sunday, June 22. The winning design will be included in the book’s text. Boom!

UK fan discovers football from GFL books

I had many reasons to write the GFL series. First, I love sports and I love scifi. Second, I believe that athletics gets little credit for being the primary racially integrative force in American culture. I believe a whole lot of us get along a whole lot better than we would have were it […]

Andy Griffith on football, circa 1953

Andy Griffith vs. the Grim Reaper. Grim Reaper won. The bastard always wins.

I remember watching THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW re-runs all the damn time. Andy, Opie and one-bullet Barney Fife. The Andy Griffith show was the anti-A-Team. I loved that show. Fortunately, I’m not yet of the age where MATLOCK appeals to me, […]
