Lowell meets Lowell

This is a Lowell meets Lowell story. There are very few of those. It’s just that the 49ers have in camp an undrafted rookie cornerback named Lowell Rose. Be still my heart. In my whole life, I’ve met one, maybe two, Lowells. I’ve been a lonely man. I asked the [...]

The fat wallet

The other day when I was home -- I hardly remember what it's like to be home -- anyway the other day I took out my wallet. Grant saw it and said, "Dad, that's a fat wallet." I never had thought of my wallet as fat. But I looked at [...]

Lowell’s Buckner moment

I'm stuck in old Cincinnati today. If the Cards win tonight, I fly home Saturday. If the Nationals win, I fly to D.C. Mrs. Cohn Zohn is very understanding -- she knows what a sports writer's life is like. Right now, I'm washing my clothes in the hotel laundry. I [...]

Many Zohn readers and Press Democrat readers are angry at me because I wrote off the Giants when they lost the first two games at home. I was dead wrong. But please don't be angry. I merely was mistaken -- and remember what the Giants did was unprecedented. Wrong is [...]

Lowell’s next big adventure

So, Grant and I fly out early Friday morning for New York. That means I'm taking my son to where I grew up, although we won't go to Brooklyn on this trip. On Friday night we're meeting my friend Stuie, a retired New York City high school English teacher -- [...]

Several Zohn readers have written comments wanting to know why I am more gentle in my comments about the Raiders than the 49ers. This is a correct and astute observation which I am obliged to address. I'll do my best. The Raiders are starting over. They are trying to emerge [...]

A personal note

I'm writing this personal note in the press box as I wait for Grant to finish his 49ers grades before we drive home. I'm not working Monday because it's Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Actually, it became Rosh Hashanah tonight at dusk but I'm here writing, so there are [...]

What I learned on the Cohn Zohn

This is what I recently learned on the Cohn Zohn and on my son's blog where people also refer to me. I am too old for my job and should retire. I am the wrong religion and someone should light me on fire because of that. I don't know anything [...]

Lowell on Comcast

I will appear on Comcast tonight after the Giants game -- lots to talk about including that strange Raiders' opener. After my marathon day on Monday, I slept most of today, just got out of my pajamas at 4 pm. Wow. If you see someone dozing off on the Comcast [...]
