Yeah, a nice whoopin' of Michigan, Saturday night. Can't complain about that. It was an odd evening though, as we had someone file a police report against one of our ushers and another gentleman in the crowd fell victim to a heart attack. I won't say he is ok, because he is still in intensive care and the hospital, but he is doing better. That is the first time I've ever dealt with a life threatening situation at an event. Let's hope it never happens again.
Other than the crazy night that was the Michigan game, things are good. I just purchased some new living room furniture. I'll be sitting in either my nice, new couch or chair next Tuesday evening. I feel like too much of a grown up. I suppose that tends to happen when you shell out just over $1,000 for anything. Yikes.
Had a chance to go out Friday night. My buddy Scott is going to be a life saver. He worked in residence life/housing at Wake and does the same at Belmont University, here in Nashville. The guy knows everyone in this town ... maybe not, but close. So i got to hang out and meet some new people Friday, which was nice. When you make a transition like this, it is always nice to have some good people to hang out with.
Speaking of good people, I never did properly (by properly, i mean jaylowe.com shout out) thank Flip and Katie for their hospitality. My boy Trent had also given me the invite, but Flip and Katie actually locked me into turkey day before I left DeKalb. It was a solid time and also really nice to see some good friends. Not to mention, Katie was instrumental in my furniture shopping. She did some research online for me, and gave me a ballpark idea of what I should look for and what I should pay. She's a great one. Flip, well I suppose he is ok.
Congrats to the LSU Tigers. They are going on the national championship game. I know there is some controversy over the game and USC being left out, but I do know that the Tigers belong. They just blistered my Dogs Saturday night. I give LSU a lot of credit. They won probably the second toughest conference in football this season. They deserve to be where they are. As far as the Dogs, I'm just thrilled they were in the SEC title game. Especially considering this was supposed to be a rebuilding year.
Took in a little NFL football yesterday. Both the Panthers and Titans lost some tough games. I'm trying to get interested in the NFL again. I grew up an Oilers fan ... not because of my parents, I just loved watching Warren Moon play football. Since he retired, I've lost interest. But since the Panthers are in my home state, and the Titans are the former Oilers, I feel like I should pay some attention.
But I'll be damned if Michael Vick isn't fun to watch. He just tore up the Panthers yesterday ... more so with rushing than passing. The potential that kid has is SICK! I'm sure my girls Jess and Kacie love seeing a fellow Hokie succeed.
This year's edition of Tar Heel basketball is looking good. And I must say, it is great seeing Roy in Carolina Blue. Sorry all you Kansas lovers. The Heels were unstoppable in yesterday's second half vs. George Mason. In that half, they pored in 68 points. That is just sick. I mean, maybe the 1990 UNLV team could score 68 in one half. I don't think Carolina will win the national championship, but they are on the road to regaining some of that lost glory.
Hope everyone's December is going well. Remember, spoil your kids on Christmas. Especially, if they are single 26-year-old males who just blew over $1,000 on furniture!
