Catch me in the paper, like Wall Street Journal. My book, LITTLE VICTORIES, is out now

Bob Newhart, Cubs Fan and Realist, Keeps Believing — "At the moment, I feel the same way I've felt about the Cubs since I was six years old," Bob Newhart said. "They make me nervous." "And they make me very nervous for an 87-year-old man who doesn't like to be nervous."

Make America Watch Football on TV Again — What in the name of Mike Ditka is wrong with you people? Why aren't you watching enough football? I keep seeing these shocking reports that NFL television ratings have slipped for the 2016 season-about 10 percent down for the league's first month, according to a story last week from the Journal's Joe Flint.

Emma Stone on Starring In La La Land and Working With Ryan Gosling — She's gone from Hollywood unknown to Oscar nominee-but can Emma Stone sing and dance her way through an old-fashioned movie musical? Get ready for La La Land, the biggest leap of Stone's high-flying career.

Robin Williams’s Kaleidoscope of Bicycles — News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. The late comedian was a fanatical cyclist and his expansive and eccentric collection of bicycles is now up for sale San Francisco -- It's possible Robin Williams loved bicycles as much as anyone has ever loved bicycles.

Baseball’s Champagne Parties Need to Chill — Look: You know I am not in the habit of discouraging the responsible consumption of alcohol. Especially during this presidential election cycle. But baseball's champagne celebrations have gotten absurd-and need to be chilled. It's not the idea of a champagne celebration, which I happily endorse, though I suggest taking it easy, because champagne hangovers are the pits.

The Calm Case for the Chicago Cubs — I believe many reasonable people wouldn't mind two things happening right now: 1. They wouldn't mind if this Presidential race ended tomorrow - or was shot into outer space with a giant space cannon. 2. They wouldn't mind if the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series.

25 More Rules of Conquering the Gym — This is our second Journal installment of Rules for Conquering the Gym, because let's be honest: You probably have yet to conquer the gym. It's OK. Gyms are tricky relationships. You fall in and out of love. Commitment fades. Maybe you have a torrid affair with ice cream sandwiches.

A Badger is Humbled: Congrats, Michigan — Ever since I went public in the Journal about my dislike of the University of Michigan, concerned people around the planet have asked me: what would I do if my Wisconsin Badgers lost on Saturday Oct. 1 in Ann Arbor? After all, the Journal's newsroom is criminally rife with Wolverines-they're everywhere-so a Badger loss was going to be miserable...

The Michigan Wolverines Are Back. Ugh. — There are a lot of reasons I want-no, I need-my Wisconsin Badgers to defeat the No. 4 Michigan Wolverines in football Saturday. The most obvious reason is that I graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, unequivocally regarded as the planet's finest institution of higher learning and bratwurst (sorry, you Harvard/Stanford losers).

The Early Season NFL Panic List — A predictable side effect of the NFL becoming America's Most Vitally Important Human Activity (Outside of Screaming at Each Other Over the Election) is that every aspect of it becomes unhinged and amplified. For example: early season panic. We freak out earlier than ever.
