After the recent arrival of my son (my pride and joy), the series of events that have occurred in my workplace, and the relocation of my dad, my eyes have really been opened to both the positive and the negative uncertainties and mysteries life has to offer.
The legend of Jeremy Lin became even greater last night. With .5 seconds left in the game against the Raptors, Lin’s shot swished through the basket to break the tie and put the Knicks up 90-87. (See video here.)
As a fan of basketball, all I can say is that this guy is truly unbelievable.
I’ve had this Living Rules list for over two years now. I think it’s important to learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others.
So much in the style of Gibbs from NCIS, I decided to document my personal set of rules in order to better follow them. Unlike the primetime Alpha Male, however, I made it a note on Facebook.
Jerod, everyone’s favorite webmaster, was obviously creeping my Facebook profile to read my plethora of amazing Eric Hinske jokes and came across my note. He felt the list was some good inspirational content.
So here they are, in slightly expanded form.
As you know – the name of this website should give it away – I’m a proud native of the Midwest (Indiana, to be exact). I no longer live there, as family and work moved me to Dallas in 2008, but I will always consider the Midwest to be my home.
Today I stumbled upon a simple story of kindness and customer service that reminded me why I’m such a proud Midwesterner in the first place. It’s not particularly extraordinary, and it’s not going to make your jaw drop; it’s just a simple example of a person doing another person a solid – the Midwest way.
As we know, the Super Bowl is the most viewed television event in the world every year. People across the world, many of whom never watch a regular season football game, tune in for the Super Bowl.
Sure, the purists among us are excited about this year’s Big Game matchup between two of the NFL’s most historic teams, the Steelers and the Packers, but many people watch for the commercials, or the halftime show, or the pomp and circumstance, or because they’re at a party, or simply because it’s the Super Bowl!
But not these folks. Something tells me they probably could not care less who wins the Lombardi Trophy.
