Just some pictures...

Here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks. Here is Zachary trying to wear mommy's shoes.

Hamming for the camera.

This is me and Zachary with the Jeff Burton Prilosec car before the race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. This picture was taken outside of BJ's.


What a show!

Well, that was some game! The Wreck stalled the Hurricanes last night, whipping them 41-23 in a game that was nowhere near as close as the final score. The 'Canes scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter after Tech had built a 41-10 lead, and began playing the subs.

Tech gained 472 yards on the ground, and had 518 total yards. Running back Jonathan "The Diesel" Dwyer ran for 128 yards (all in the first half), and both QB Josh Nesbitt and wingback Roddy Jones came close to having 100 yards apiece on the ground (93 and 97 yards, respectively) .

Now, the cynic in me wants to say "Great! Now we have no chance at beating UGA, because we used up all our ammo against Miami!" However, I think that we are finally seeing a different football team at Tech. Paul Johnson's attitude is beginning to sink in, I think. This isn't the same-old Tech.

We were picked by most experts to be the cellar-dwellers in the ACC this year, with a new coaching staff and a new offense. Most doubted that Coach Johnson's offense would work at a big-time Division I school. I think he has proven his detractors wrong, and I believe the team is only going to get better from here.

Now, if we can just ride this momentum, and not get overconfident against those Dawgs, we'll be alright.

Crazy Days

Yeah, so I haven't updated in a couple of weeks. It has been pretty crazy around here. I've been so busy at work, that I haven't had time to update here. I have a few newish pics that I do plan to post sometime soon, just not exactly sure when I will get to them.

Until then, I'll just say "MASH ON THE GAS" to my Ramblin' Wreck as they take on Miami tonight.

Election Aftermath

Well, the election is over, and we have a new President-elect. Can't say I am enthused by the winner, but I can say that, even though I disagree with Obama's policies, he is soon to become my president, and with that, he will have my respect. Not that I respect him, per se, but rather the office that he is soon to inherit. I wish him well, and pray for him.

Now, here is something that I found interesting. I saw this and thought it was too good not to share. The guy really knows what he is talking about.

The Big 30!

Well, we had a "surprise" birthday party for me this weekend, as my 30th birthday is coming up (November 8th). I put surprise in quotation marks because I knew it was coming. Ever since we got my brother Ken on his 30th, I knew the same would hold for me.

They actually had a better cover story for this party because Taylor, my youngest niece, has a birthday a few days before mine (Happy Birthday, Tay!). So, her party was the real reason everyone gathered this weekend.

I was actually surprised about what the theme of my party was gonna be. I figured it would be the same old "Over the Hill" stuff, but I was pleasantly shocked when I saw this:That is an old-school Georgia Tech logo from the 1950's.

It was a good day to be a Tech fan, too, with the Wreck squeaking out a much-needed victory over Florida State, putting us back in the top-25, and back into the lead for the ACC Coastal. Of course, we still need Virginia and Virginia Tech to lose another game, and we really need to win out (or at least win our remaining ACC games) to fully take advantage.

Thanks to Jessica, Mom, Dad, Ken, Terri, Kerry, Emily, Cami, and especially Taylor for the party (Taylor -- Thanks for sharing your party with me!).
