Brain freeze

1 Comment

I was given some news today that worried me greatly, so I haven’t been my usual jovial self. But I must press onward because I remembered my mindset to make the most of every day. So instead of spiraling downwards I’m going to think positive.

You can spiral up or down. A lot of times its our own choice.

Speaking of brain freeze, it’s almost time for the local snowball stand to open. I can’t wait to get that painful vise like feeling between my eyes. Thankfully its fleeting and a good reminder for me to slow down and enjoy it.

Can’t wait till the real snowballs are dished out.

OK, I couldn’t resist. I know it doesn’t make sense. I know the odds are as long as can be. I know logic has been thrown out the window. But when I saw the possible match ups for the University of Maryland mens basketball team I couldn’t resist because it would be like a dream come true. They are in the east bracket and if they get past the first two games and make it to the Sweet 16 they would probably run into Michigan State. Would be nice to beat the Big 10 champ and prove who is the cream of the crop. And the next game would probably be against the #1 seed and Maryland nemesis DUKE. Boy that would take me back to the ACC days where we would enjoy very much beating a #1 Duke team. Next up would most likely be Gonzaga which has been a #1 team most of the season. Lets say we get lucky and knock off 2 #1 teams. We then could have a possible match up with North Carolina in a final.

Can you image that. Knocking off that run of teams for the National Championship. Just the thought of this possibility sealed the fate of the office pool entry I made today. But one can dream. And I believe in being a supportive fan. Maybe a delusional one, but devoted.


Random Thoughts of the Day

I believe and practice on treating people the same. Be they a janitor or executive.

I hate being so busy that I don’t even have time to download the previous days shooting. Look like I’ll double up tomorrow.

I wonder how long it will be before the mob gets to that guy who killed one of the bosses?

Now why would someone recommend reading the manifesto of the New Zealand masque shooter? Oh it was Kelly AC. That explains it.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.

  1. I still miss the ACC! My Dad asked me yesterday, “do I have TruTV? The MD game is on TruTV.”
