... no, really, procrastination.  Lots of it.  Right now.  It's tough.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

I'm glad they lost, and certainly glad that they're out of the spotlight.  Shouldn't you be cheering on the Cubbies, anyway?

How 'bout dem bears?  What a game on Sunday, eh?

Dude I TVR'd that game, I had to have watched it like 5 times.  it was SOOO crazy!  i was on the edge of my seat the entire time. 

We're not talking about the cubs.  that's my stance, i'm sticking to it.  too many bad things happen when we talk about the cubbies.  a lot of crying and complaining and anger is envolved...always...

That upcoming Ohio State game against Texas is gona be a dousy huh?

    Of which vertu engendred is the flour.
    Whan Zephirus eek with his swete breeth,
    Inspired hath in every holt and heeth
    The tendre croppes, and the yonge sonne
    Hath in the Ram his halfe cours yronne.
    And smale fowles maken melodye,
    That slepen al the night with open yë
    (So priketh hem Nature in hir corages).
    Thanne longen folk to goon on pilgrimages
    (And palmeres for to seken straunge strondes).
    To ferne halwes, couthe in sondry londes;
    And specially, from every shires ende
    Of Engelond to Caunterbury they wende,
    The holy blisful martir, for to seke,
    That hem hath holpen, whan that they were seke.
