Hello my lovelies. I’ll try to squeeze some thoughts in here before editing our little newsletter, signing off on wireframes, negotiating hosting costs (I heart you Rackspace and I think we should do business together. Let’s come up with a reasonable cost whatcha say?), and submitting a roster for our flag football team. Me = busy bee. And I like it. It keeps me from giving the finger to unsuspecting people not walking down the street fast enough or eating piles of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Dang those things are seriously perfect…mmmmmm…*drool*…
Anyway, good weekend for football. UGA thrashed Coastal Carolina so handily that I almost felt like crying for them. Almost. And then the Falcons played an amazing game against the Eagles and — while I’m not so proud of all the booing of Mike Vick because I think maybe he’s learned his lesson and he is so freakin’ talented — I was glad to see old Matty Ryan play with grace and stamina. Takeaway Facebook wisdom from the coach concerning Falcons vs. Eagles — “I’m amazed Michael Vick is able to run around with Cris Collinsworth swinging from his nuts like that.” And then later, when Vick left the game in the 3rd quarter — “It made more sense before he left the game with a concussion. But before that, it was borderline lewd.” The Coach makes me laugh. And is either a genius or a sociopath. We’re all still trying to figure that one out. (Just kidding my friend)
As for our little flag football game well, we played a very athletic Virginia Tech who I’m pretty sure is one of the best in the league. We had them beat almost the entire game until we lost by one point on literally the last play. So, I’m satisfied. And I like this article because it is what it feels like, which I think is the reason people love the game so much. Constant, ubiquitous strategy. And then later at the Sign of the Whale I think I actually got hit on a few times. I have to keep reminding myself that I’ve done all this before and it’s new to some of these kids. It’s kind of an interesting perspective and I’m enjoying/hating every minute of it. Nice to have friends around who say things like, “You look good tonight.” Thank you sir. You did, too. Here’s a new favorite pic from Penn Quarter because it’s what I see about half the time I’m actually there.
Okay, I can’t be all deep. I’m busy. But I want to leave you with this because I can’t stop watching it. Every time I get annoyed with work I play it again and everything gets better fast. It is therefore a thing of light in dreary world. And I’m happy to share it with you.
