Happy 4th of July and God Bless America

Thank you to the incredibly brave men and women throughout American history that have sacrificed so much to help keep every American equal and free. Without your remarkable bravery, great planning and foresight, and your valiant efforts, then our outstanding country would have never made it this far.
America is not perfect and it never will be, but the simple fact that every American is equal and free is the greatest gift of all. The American blueprint has clearly demonstrated the beauty of its inherent design for the rest of the world to witness and to emulate. Therefore, if another country's own wonderful people want to prosper without limits, they can mirror the fantastic game plan that America is built upon and create their own free nation for their citizens to bloom and flourish. The brilliant and innovative foundation of America's design is based upon unlocking the true potential of every individual whose God-given rights are self-evident.
“That this Nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people - shall not perish from this Earth” - President Abraham Lincoln

Huge Crowds Joyfully Returned in 2021. Always Stick Together and Let's Have an Amazing New Year in 2022!

Genuinely humble back on July 8th, 2020, I wrote a blog piece about how important it is for all of us to stick together and remain positive, and to respect each other's opinion during the pandemic. Most of all as people know, the importance of staying strong while humanity galvanized and worked together throughout the comeback period to win against the evil virus that scourged the globe.

Overall against daunting odds throughout the 2021 IFL spring-summer season, the IFL had 11 teams operating in 9 different states, and yet the IFL did NOT have to cancel any games due to COVID. Better yet, as a reward for its remarkable handling in guiding a multitude of pro football teams through the pandemic, the IFL played its annual and thrilling United Bowl championship game on September 12th, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ. 

Dutifully as its moniker implies, all IFL games are played Indoors. Therefore, the IFL's perfect accomplishment of NOT missing any games for the entirety of its 2021 season is amazing! To be clear the IFL's stunning achievement was sheer perfection overall.  Looking ahead to 2022, the IFL will have 15 teams playing football in 12 different states. A very healthy growth of the IFL's expanding footprint and with other new teams in attractive markets coming onboard in 2023 and beyond.

Willfully and eagerly nationwide in 2021, high school and collegiate football programs returned and their respective institutions hosted huge crowds with thousands-and-thousands of people having a great time together once again. Overall a great accomplishment, not perfect but wonderful when their collective seasons are taken as a whole.

It's time to rejoice and celebrate in our shared victory. Together we shall always prevail.

Never once did our nation quit and we have earned it by sticking together through the worst of times.

So the lesson is clear - always stick together and never let anything divide us.

Embrace it and have a blast - because by working together we have achieved a hard-fought victory and it's time for us to enjoy living a fun life once again!

On March 21st, 2022 - the Bay Area Panthers will kick off the team's inaugural season on Monday Night Football at the SAP Center in beautiful downtown San Jose, CA and it's going to be awesome!  All Panthers Home games will be broadcast live on television throughout the greater bay area and every Panthers game (home & away) will be shown live on You Tube.

"FREEDOM IS THE CURE" Freedom and Liberty for Every American and Help Others Worldwide to Become Free


Americans truly know it, understand it, and cherish the irrefutable fact that EVERY American is equal and free.  

Be happy, enjoy your life and do not be afraid. Have no fear, and always remember that best of all...FREEDOM IS THE CURE.

And, our God-given rights are protected by the brilliant founding documents as written in our nation's Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

If you want to read or share our country's Charters of Freedom, you can click on the link below to review them; and you can also share them with your fellow Americans and other people worldwide that want to become free...


EVERY American is equal and free, always and forever...

Our God-given rights are rightfully protected by our brilliantly-written Charters of Freedom. Every American has the freedom to choose and build the incredible life they want to create. The freedom to work hard, be industrious and innovate; to create, and experiment and be victorious, and to learn from our defeats. The freedom to try again, and again, and again. The freedom to take on new challenges and go for it big time, and to earn a winning life for ourselves and our families.

Freedom and Liberty and Independence. 

Love, live and laugh, and God Bless!

United Together and Stay Positive

We are all equal and never let anything divide us. Overall America is a loving, forgiving and incredibly fair country for all of its people. 

When America was officially founded on July 4th, 1776 the remarkable experiment of providing unlimited opportunity for all of its people began. And now after nearly 250 years in the making, the American experiment is once again proving to be strong and resilient because of its sacred founding and the brilliantly explained constitutional rights and amendments for all of its citizens. 

During America's most severe ups and downs, our great nation has always survived and it shall always do so, as long as we stay united and remain positive. 

If you ever find yourself doubting the future humble greatness of America for all of its citizenry, then take some time to ease your soul and read the stunning historical accounts of what our past leaders and ancestors went through 100, 200 or 300 years ago. Their breathtaking individual sufferings and valiant efforts, coupled with their combined heroics helped to keep America in tact and become even better than it had been before. 

To be sure and as carefully documented in their own words during their most difficult tribulations, our predecessors had fears and doubts about if their struggles were worthwhile. But, they also realized the only way to improve the future of America was to keep working together with their fellow Americans no matter what, unyielding in their galvanized desire to make America even better for all of its people.

The United States of America offers unlimited opportunity for every American of any gender, any race, any ethnicity or any religious belief, if that person is willing to work hard to build their dreams into an amazing reality.

America is not perfect and it never will be. However, America is always improving upon itself to help each citizen create the type of life they want to live for themselves and their loved ones. 

American freedom and unlimited opportunity for all of its citizens is fantastic, wonderful and awesome, and if we all stick together and respect one another then the best is yet to come.

Freedom and Liberty for Every American. Always Stick Together and God Bless.

It's wise to remember if you happen to encounter somebody, or an organization or group that attempts to divide you against your fellow American, then it's best to not take the bait. And, if they are against having a reasonable discussion or even entertaining a different point of view whatsoever from their own, then it's smart to respectfully wish them well and move along. 

We are all equal and free, thank God, and we have a sacred right to our divergent opinions. 

Of course, we know it's true that another person's opinion might be radically different than ours, but it's important to love and to respect your fellow American and honor their God-given right to peacefully express their own point of view, always and forevermore.

In Memory of my Father. He was an Amazing Man and My Hero...RIP.

George Caig was an incredibly kind, smart and loving man, and I was very blessed to have him as my Dad. God bless his kind soul, and may he rest in peace...

George H. Caig
(July 8, 1928 - March 30, 2021)

George H. Caig passed away on March 30th, 2021, at the age of 92 in Piedmont, CA after living a long and very fulfilling life. George, who was often referred to by his nickname, “Jud” was an incredible man, and a caring and loving father, husband, grandfather, great grandfather, and a good friend to many people.

George is survived by his wife of more than 40-years, Julie, his two daughters, Sue, and Martha, and his two stepsons, Kurt, and Keith. Additionally, between their two combined loving families, they have nine grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren.

George was very appreciative of the beauty of nature and greatly enjoyed learning about plants, flowers, and trees - locally and throughout his travels with his family, friends, and with his beloved wife, Julie. He was also a “green thumb” and enjoyed teaching his children about the greatness of the outdoors, and he found fulfillment tending to his garden at their home in Piedmont.

Born at Fabiola Hospital in Oakland, CA on July 8th, 1928, George was raised in Piedmont and learned the value of creating stability and long-term planning due to his formative years during the Great Depression (1929-36). He went to Wildwood Elementary School and discovered his passion for exploring the outdoors by becoming an active member in the Boy Scouts, and eventually became an Eagle Scout. He loved athletics, especially playing basketball and baseball. At Piedmont High School, “Jud” was an excellent basketball player and was known as a great shooter of long-range baskets. Jokingly, he referred to his best shots as, “punishing the nets” which he loved to do while playing a game of basketball in town - his favorite form of recreation into his late seventies.

After graduating from Piedmont High School in 1946, George attended the University of California at Berkeley, where he advanced his business acumen while also developing new friendships. He was also an upstanding member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. As a student at Cal, Jud and his buddies attended three Rose Bowl games to support the Bears (Jan 1949-51). During his tenure at Cal, Jud realized he loved reading, and hence began his lifelong hobby of enjoying books, non-fiction, and fiction. Throughout his life, Jud would have stacks of books piled up near his favorite reclining chair that he was actively reading. On a special note, for more than fifty-years after graduating from Cal, Jud and Julie and their friends attended the Cal vs. Stanford ‘Big Games’ together, and they were at the famous game known as “The Play” on November 10th, 1982.

Along with some of his friends, Jud explored the Sierra Mountains via hiking, fishing, and camping trips, which included treks into the high-altitude regions where they would catch various species of fish, including the elusive Golden Trout.

Jud graduated from Cal in 1950 and then proudly served his country as an Officer in the United States Army after going through boot camp at Ford Ord in Monterey, CA. During his time in the service, he was stationed throughout northern California, and especially enjoyed his time spent at the Marin Headlands, the Presidio in San Francisco, and in the east bay hills near the area known as the Caldecott region. 

After being honorably discharged from the Army, George had a remarkably steady and prosperous career in the insurance industry and spent nearly 40-years with the same firm, the Fireman’s Fund. He worked at their corporate office in San Francisco and Novato, CA. George became a trusted figure within the industry; and was especially known for his diligent work in the Bonds department, reviewing, detailing, and underwriting numerous mid-to-large scale construction projects throughout the bay area and northern California during his career.

In large part due to George’s ability to plan, coupled with their desire to explore the world, Jud and Julie and their group of lifelong friends began to travel the globe. Their trips became a semi-annual event after their gatherings held in Los Osos, CA to discuss all things considered for their next escapade. Their group toured Italy three times, Spain, Ireland, England, Scotland (George’s ancestors built McCaig Tower long ago), France, Portugal, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, and many beautiful places throughout the United States of America. And for Jud and Julie, their local getaways to Mendocino, CA became their favorite place to be together.

Incredibly, Jud never learned to play golf until after he retired from working, but then he discovered his enjoyable, yet “frustrating” new hobby in golf. Since he loved to walk and hike, and desired to play sports, he quickly got hooked on the game that helped to keep him active throughout his golden years.

Volunteerism became a second calling during Jud’s retirement, and he cherished giving back some of his time and energy to those in need. He was honored to step up as a hardworking volunteer at Providence Hospital in Oakland for several years, and he assisted with the Piedmont Police Department to serve those in his hometown.

George was a first-class person throughout his life. He was a patient, humble, and loving family man, who always put his family first. He also treated his closest friends with the utmost love and respect, and he was there to assist whenever called upon.

Jud will always be remembered for being an outstanding person, and for making the lives of his family and friends even better than they could have imagined. Respectfully, the Caig and Bryan families thank you for keeping them in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, as they learn to live their lives with the loving memory of Jud in their hearts and minds forever.

Indoor Football League (IFL) Helping to Advance the Innovative Future of Football

As the Indoor Football League (IFL) enjoys its 13th season of play with 11 teams across the country, and with at least 14 teams set to kickoff in 2022; the IFL is now the second-longest running pro football league in America, only behind the NFL.

How did the IFL thrive to this point in time, and manage to play its full slate of games (Indoors and in 9 Different States so far in 2021), as the league surges towards its annual United Bowl championship game later this summer?

The IFL's main directive - to offer innovative football played within the confines of a nice arena setting, while keeping ticket prices family friendly have allowed the IFL to remain "immune" from the downward spiral of outside forces.

For example in the IFL, the offensive team may have up to 2 players in motion in any combination of forward or lateral movement, which creates fantastic play-design options. And, when a team that has the lead is in the final minute of a game, that offensive team must gain positive yardage on each play or the clock will stop...therefore running out the clock for a full-minute by taking a kneel-down play is not an option in the IFL.

The amazing talent and superb coaching in the IFL has already generated more than 80-players being signed by NFL or CFL clubs, and with many more dynamic players sure to ascend into the ranks of the NFL.

The unmatched IFL fan-experience is organic and electrifying, enabling football fans the chance to passionately root for their team up close and personal during the games, and then they can meet their favorite stars on the field after the game.

As the IFL continues to expand into new Team Markets over the next few years, the wonderful indoor pro football experience provided by the IFL will naturally become even stronger, more diversified (it's track record is excellent) and thrilling for its passionate fans and players alike.

The weather is always good inside the arena for an IFL game. Therefore, as long as the IFL continues to innovate both on and off the field, while expanding into quality Team Markets, then it's sunny skies on the horizon for the IFL and its growing fan base.

Fun times ahead!
