I want the Patriots to lose: Reason 4

January 31, 2008

On December 12, 1982 the New England Patriots hosted Miami in what has become known as the “Snow Plow Game”. Here’s the story in a nut shell: Snow, lot’s of snow. No score. 4:45 left in the game. Patriots coach hails the stadium snow plow operator. He veers off the field onto the field to quickly clear a patch for the New England kicker to kick a game winning field goal. Dolphins lose. Patriots win. I know this game was played some 25 years ago, but it tainted my childhood. From that day forward I hated the Patriots. The venom continues to this day.


A loss for words

I was blown away by this video. Port-Au-Prince, Haiti is only 750 miles from West Palm Beach, Fl.

Florida Primary

January 30, 2008

I went to my local voting precinct today at 5 PM and cast a vote for the person I believe to be most capable to lead this country for the next 4-8 years. With 57 delegates up for grabs Florida is a pretty important state. The party leaders have slapped Florida on the wrist by discounting the Democratic delegates completely and cutting the Republican delegates in half. All because we moved our Primary up. Politics, you gotta love ’em.

So you wanna know who I voted for?

2 weeks and counting….

Our schedule for the next 2 weeks is going to be crazy! Besides having to get all of my bases covered in my ministry, we have tons to prep for with our travels. We have to pack enough clothing for 1 month (including toiletries, etc.), pack for our sons as they own absolutely nothing, electronics (video camera, still, laptop, external HD), paperwork (a whole large backpack dedicated to paperwork). I’m sure that there is more but that’s the basics.

I want the Patriots to lose: Reason 3

January 28, 2008

I lived in New England for 6 years of my life. As a life-long Miami Dolphins fan I used to get an ear full from the most obnoxious loud mouthed fans ever. The only thing I can compare Patriot’s fans to are University of Florida Gators fans. Just over the top, can do no wrong obnoxious. I will never forget the heck I got in 1986 when New England beat Miami in the AFC Championship. I have never lived it down.

Good Bye!

January 27, 2008

Today I went to the Orange Bowl Stadium in Miami to say good bye to the grandest of all sports venues. It was amazing to see all of the Dolphin and Hurricane legends walking around and yes, play a flag football game. Here are a few pictures

The cut off sleeves. The heather gray, lack of color. Yuck. This is not personal, but dude, the Patriots have good colors, red, white and blue. Wear ’em! I know this seems shallow, but, it is my blog! Please don’t read into this, there is nothing spiritual here. I don’t like his hoodie.

On the road…..again

January 23, 2008

This morning Penny and I made another “quick” trip north to our state capital, Tallahassee. They should really consider making a sub-station capital city here in south Florida. This trip was a big deal, we actually MAY be able to announce a court date soon.
