Well, the Dawgs played a good game against Bama tonight but it wasn't enough - they lost by 6. They have only won 1 SEC game thus far this season and not much hope of winning others (but we'll still root them on). They're just too young and inexperienced. Maybe next year will be better!
Speaking of next year, I think our football team will improve A LOT!!!

Here's a topic I haven't delved into at all - weight loss. I gained a fair amount of weight after my knee surgery 6 years ago and then summer '04, my bro and his wife lived with me and we cooked lots of good stuff. Well, mid-year last year, I decided to change all that. I lost about 25 pounds in 3 months but then regained 15 after I hurt my knee and couldn't work out at all. In October, I started really working on it again and have lost a total of 35 pounds (including the 10 I didn't gain back earlier) -WooHoo!! I'm on a roll now and hope to lose about 60 more to be back at my 'good' weight. I can do this!!


How about the steelers? Wow!! The Bus rolls into Detroit!

Dump ball

Well, I know I said that our basketball team wouldn't do so hot this year but I never dreamed we'd do as bad as we're doing. I mean, come on, who loses 4 straight SEC games and todays game against Vandy by a big score. There's no way we can go to a conference championship game, no way we'll get invited to the big dance, and no way we'll go to any other off-season bonuses - we're just way to awful!!
{Sigh!!!} There's always baseball, right???

King Kong

Well, I FINALLY got to see King Kong at the theater! A friend from work and I had tried to go a couple of times but no dice - she had already seen it twice and wanted me to see it. It was very good - I will definitely buy that one! The scenary was awesome in several places and the computer graphics were way good!! Did you realize that King Kong was played by the same guy who did Golam in LOTR??? He is awesome! Of course, they recorded him doing various things and then used the computer to create the King Kong that we saw but Wow! what they can do with a good computer! :)

Calling all RUFfer alumni

RUF Songbook is online. I had printed the songbook off years ago when I was still in school at MSU and Brian Habig was the new campus minister (yes, this means it was 10 years ago now). I'm sure that it has been greatly updated and expanded since then. I lost the link for the songbook and never found a decent site for it again until I found this link on my brother's site. Enjoy!

library blog

Check out the new blog I've just started for my library
And speaking of libraries, I've found an interesting site where you can catalog all your books online and create a virtual library. Here's the site: Library Thing. The first 200 books you do are free and then its either $10 a year or a one time $25 fee for lifetime. Can't figure that one out, why pay $10 a year if you can pay $25 once?? Hmmm....

WoW oh WoW oh WoW

What a game that was! I'm talking about Tx Longhorns and USC Trojans. This was hyped to be a big game and a big game it was. I'd been doing good about not staying up late to watch the whole game of some of the bowl games but this was one time I watched the whole thing. WoW! I was pulling for Tx while most all commentators and such said USC would win and win big - boy were they ever wrong! Vince Young just marched on the field determined to win the day and win it he did! This was a battle all the way to the end - punts were exchanged and touchdowns were fought for and won. In the end, USC just didn't have what it took to win the game and their 34 game win streak was snapped - HOOK 'EM HORNS!! Final score 41-38 - 'nuff said! :) I have to say what a class act Mack Brown of Tx is - in accepting the trophy he said something along the lines of All the players, coaches, and fans should show their recognition to the great job USC has done in the past years and give them credit for a hard fought game - the stadium exploded in applause. BUT USC was not as kind. The coach acted as though he was giving credit where credit was due but the players had nothing good to say. Matt Leinart even went so far as to say they were still the best team but that the plays all went Tx' way. I heard not one good comment about Tx from any of the USC players - I realize that they just lost but come on, show some good sportsmanship and say Something good about your opponent.
Well, other bowl game news - the SEC finished 3-3. Alabama, Florida, and LSU won their games while South Carolina, Georgia, and Auburn lost theirs. I was really disappointed that Ga. lost as they are the team I pull for in the SEC East.
I'm sad now as football season is truly over - I know there's still the NFL and I do watch that from time to time but I'm not as into professional football as I am college ball. Only 7 or 8 months till football season
