Jai Bai Tai!

That, of course, is Australian for JBT. JBT is, of course, the John Butler Trio, the best Australian Band around.

I just got word about 30 minutes ago that John Butler and his trio will be playing, of all placese, Bellingham Washington on December 8th at the Nightlight Lounge. If you are reading this and you're in Bellingham do yourself a favor and go see him. He's good. I'm serial. I won't be able to make it, as I will still be down in LA. I was initially pretty ticked off when I heard that was the date. But I decided to check the tour dates and, whatdyaknow? They're playing THIS SATURDAY IN LA! And I'm going! Here are some clips.

Take (Make sure you make it to the last couple of minutes... insane!):

Back in Action

I'm back from a spectacular trip home. I had two terrible flights, but I'm alive.

Now I'm trying to catch up with school. Nothing out of the ordinary. I definately see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Did anyone see that Notre Dame game last saturday. What were those refs thinking when they called that TD back? Terrible call! They actually got it right the first time and then they changed it to the wrong call after viewing the replay. I like the Pac-10, but I'll admit... it has the worst officiating in college sports. Are you with me Oklahoma?

But while trying to find a video I came across this! I remember this video from 1992 and have looked for it on Youtube but finally just found it by accident. It features my college's football team, my favorite sports reporter of all time (Bruce King), and my old High School at the very end.

I give you the greatest catch ever.

I'm on my way.....

Happy Friday and Happy A-Rod staying on the East Coast and out of my life more often than he would if he were in Anaheim day.

Here is the schedule...

Today I work on my exegesis for like 8 hours or until its finished. Then I pack. Then tomorrow I wake up ready to tell people that they can't go to their friend's diaconate ordination because there isn't enough space and that they can't get in without a ticket (its because 13 guys are getting ordained). Then I somehow how try to justify that I'm at the diaconate ordination while there are so many people outside and upset. Then As soon as the diaconate is over or the clock strikes 12:45 I leave for home.

I'm on my Waaaaaaaaaaaay. I'm on my Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. Home Sweet Home!

Finding a Motley Crue video without pointless nudity and/or cursing is pretty difficult. I'm pretty sure this one doesn't have either, but if it does, please email me and I'll take it down.

Don't Fire Weis

I've been a bit sick this week. I'm guessing it might be because of the disgusting Notre Dame Game I listened to. Then again, it may have been that atrocious Seahawks game I followed on GameCast. Either way, I have a nasty sore throat and I've missed some class this week.

But regarding the above teams, I'm pretty sure the Seahawks are going to make the playoffs. First off, their division is terrible. Second off, the schedule that looked so intimidating at the beginning of the year now looks laughable. They might even win out. If the Seahawks don't make the playoffs in this situation, they don't deserve it and you won't hear any complaining out of me.

As for ND, I really like this article from ESPN. It sums up a really bad situation, but concludes that the Irish shouldn't fire Charlie Weis. It also sides with the former Coach, Tyrone Willingham who was fired after a similar first 3 years as Weis. (TW, by the way, is in some hot-water at UW as well... I hope UW doesn't bow down to the boosters and decides to keep willingham around) Anyway, I don't have much more to say about that.

As for the Navy Game, I'll just say this: Its like that old saying goes... Its even hard to beat Navy 44 times in a row.


PS. Blogging has been light and will be light for a while because I'm dealing with the biggest assignment of my semester and am not even really that close to finishing it. It is an exegesis on Luke 24:13-35, The Road to Emmaus. Its not that long, but its 40% of my grade, which means I have to do really well.
