I haven't done a bullet-point random thought blog in awhile. I know all of you have missed those so here goes:
- I love the Winter Olympics. Any Olympics is good, and two summers ago I was big-time into the whole Michael Phelps story, but when it comes to awesomeness the winter games come out on top. Short track speed skating, snow board cross and half-pipe, luge, and even curling are all cooler than anything in the summer games. I think I feel that way because all of the winter sports are more unique. The summer games feature lots of swimming, running, and basketball, all things I have done before, and that makes them a little less intriguing. On the other hand, when I see a dude lying face down on a tiny sled the size of a cookie sheet and hurtling 90 miles per hour down an icy track, I am aware that not only have I never done that, but I don't even know anyone who has ever done that. Maybe if I grew up in Canada or Minnesota I would be less impressed, but I doubt it.
- ESPN has gone crazy with the whole Tiger Woods thing. This morning on both ESPN channels that was all that was being discussed. He hasn't made his public statement yet, and I'm already tired of hearing about it. I feel sorry for Tiger's wife. It's bad enough that she has to deal with her tomcat of a husband, but she has to deal with him in front of the whole world. This whole story should serve as a huge warning to anyone who desires great fame. The more famous you become the more famous your mistakes become as well, and we are all going to make mistakes.
- Donny is preaching for the next four weeks. It has been a long time since I took a break from the Sunday morning teaching schedule. I will still be working on messages during the break, and my plan is to be four weeks ahead when it's over. On Sunday Donny will be continuing the "Heroes" series with the first of two powerful messages about Moses.
- No rain of snow is in the forecast for this weekend! I am really looking forward to a dry warmer weekend. There are lots of outdoor projects to be done around the house and I plan on jumping on some of them starting this afternoon.
