The most requested thing for dinner around here? Noodles. With butter.

That time I went to Safeway to get football cookies and they didn't have any...

Me:  Do you have any football shaped cookies?
Safeway baker:  No, I'm sorry.
Me:  Any with blue and green?
Safeway baker:  No.  We did last year, but...
Me:  I suppose the Seahawks in the Super Bowl is old hat by now, huh?
Safeway Baker:  I guess.

And that was that.  I thought it would be cool to bring cookies to school so the kids could celebrate the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, but I guess I'm supposed to save my money.  Maybe I will try a different bakery on my way to work in the morning.  I mean, it's not every year one's team makes it to the big game.  Well, it was last year.  And a few years ago when the refs were asleep.  But we are in the northwest!  Surely a northwest team in the Super Bowl would warrant some cookies every single year that they make it?


And coach, if you are reading this, our guys need to quit losing yards due to offensive penalties.  You can't excuse them by saying they are rookies anymore, it's time for them to pay attention and step up.
Offside.  Encroachment.  False start.  Holding.  These can be avoided!  C'mon!

Lastly, someone ought to tell Beast Mode that he is acting like a 6th grader.  He signed the contract.  He knew he was going to have to talk to the media.  He needs to grow up.

That's all.  Play on!

When you're prepared, you're never scared.

"When you're prepared, you're never scared. "

Who said it?  
A boy scout?  
A campfire girl?  

Russell Wilson, the awesome Seattle Seahawks quarterback said it in his most recent press conference after beating the Carolina Panthers. (watch the whole thing or go to the 6:25 mark for the quote.)

Seems to me that it applies to a whole lot more in life than just football.  When you practice and are prepared to drive, you can plan your route, avoid the potential problems, and make it to your destination intact and without fear.  When you do your homework and know the material, the tests shouldn't scare you.  When you get ready for a performance, being on stage should be exciting instead of petrifying.

When you're prepared, you're never scared.  

Could also apply to death.  When you're prepared (you have a right relationship with God in life), you're never scared (because Heaven is a whole lot better than here).

Are you prepared?
