Catching up

Yesterday was a busy Monday, and I have discovered that if I don't write a post on here before lunch it's not going to happen. It was around 3:00 yesterday when I realized I had not thought about the blog at all. Here's some random thoughts for today:

- God really used Wayne Cordiero's message to speak to me on Sunday. I am going to make an effort to study God's word and let it speak to me without me always reading it to figure out what I can teach to our people.

- Rhett and the rest of the band did a great job on "Signature of Divine (Yahweh)". In case you didn't know, that song is performed by NeedtoBreathe. They are a band from right here in the upstate.

- I think it's weird that Major League Baseball managers wear a uniform like the players do. We went to Atlanta on Friday to see the Braves play, and it made me laugh that Bobby Cox is introduced in the starting line-ups as "wearing #6 Bobby Cox". It's as if he might pick up a bat and go in as a pinch hitter if needed. What if basketball coaches wore the same uniform as their team? Imagine Phil Jackson or Gregg Popovich sitting on the bench in shorts and a sleeveless jersey. On second thought, don't imagine that.

- Sherry, Emily, and I took Grace to camp yesterday morning, and I didn't cry when we left. That doesn't mean I didn't want to, I just didn't.

- We took Emily and two friends to see the new Indiana Jones movie last night. If you haven't seen it yet, I won't spoil it for you here, but I will say that the ending was out there. In fact, it was a little too out there. I would give it 2 out of 5 stars.

Sorry I was out of town for your "Taz trivia". Would have killed that one.
As for managers wearing baseball uniforms . . . it goes back to the late 1800's when a team's captain/coach was playing member of the team. Once they got too old to play effectively, they were still sought out to lead the team in thier on-field pursuits, and teh uniform stayed with them. Enter good 'ol Connie Mack whowore a suit but never left the dugout. Baseball has spoken: Want to be on the field? Wear a uniform. Heck, even the streakers know that!
Besides, Basketball was invented by a gym teacher.

Oddly, the closest thing to baseball is horse racing. Think about it. The jockey and the horse are pretty much wearing the same silky outfit. I've been sick the past few days so I've missed much (freakin' Taz). But the down time has been blessed with a plethora of Springsteen on the radio in anticipation of his upcoming concert. I'm sooo there.

Other Coaches that we shouldn't imagine wearing uniforms: Rick Majeris formerly of Utah, Bobby Knight in the red and white pin stripe warm ups, Dean Smith in a Carolina Blue tank top, John Thompson of Georgetown, Bobby Cremmins, and the late Frank McGuire to name a few.

What if Football coaches wore full pads? Could you imagine Lou Holtz doing a post game press conference with shoulder pads, wearing eye black, and some kind of Under Armour "do rag?"

Dave- I got to see Springsteen (thanks to Pauley) a few years ago. It was awesome. I do hope you get to go.
