First of all, I am happy that the last couple of entries generated some dialogue about ideas, there’s not enough conversation about big ideas, it comes to a halt when you leave college.
Last weekend was my 29th birthday. It was a great weekend with my family and my wife made me feel like a king. I took Monday off and my birthday priveldges extended all the way through the long weekend. I was able to cram in some fishing, a trip down to Lincoln Financial Field to see the Temple Owls take on Northern Illinois, multiple games of Madden, and some outstanding ribs from Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse.
This was my first birthday with Winston in my life and it was really wonderful. It’s funny to picture the contrasts of birthday celebrations from a couple of years ago versus a birthday celebration when you married with a child. A couple of years ago, it might have been a trip to a downtown bar filled with shots, late night pizza, and a mean hangover. There were a lot of times over the weekend where the contrast was incredibly evident, but only because I felt so lucky for everything I now have.
I beat Dave in Madden twice, won my fantasy football game and caught a largemouth bass at Round Valley Reservoir. Last nigth I took Dave on with the Arizona Cardinals, I was hoping that my receivers would be good enough to beat him, I was wrong and got beat badly. We’ll square away again later this week, I think I might try the Jaguars.
Song of the Blog – coming later today…it will be worth the wait!
