Leon! Leon! Leon!

Just got back from one of the best games that I have witnessed. Wow! Best part? Turning to Carrie while watching Leon Washington head bobbing to the music before the second half kickoff and saying, "If he runs this in our first born's middle name will be Leon". He ran it in. Second best, telling her if he ran in another, the first name will be Leon. Now, if we have a son, the kid will be named L.L.


My voice hurts, by the way.

Oh, and Faith Hill is no Joan Jett. That 'Sunday Night Football' song is trash. This here is the stuff

More Proof That Dogs are Better Than Cats

Let's see you do this in one take with cats...

OK Go's newest video White Knuckles.

Twelve dogs, twelve trainers, thirty eight buckets, two furniture movers, all kinds of furniture, one hundred twenty four takes, thirty of those complete, and one goat. Once again, OK Go does it the hard way which, in my opinion, makes it better. I'm gonna watch again.

By the way, do yourself a favor and click through to YouTube and watch full screen in 720p HD. You can thank me later.

Red Zone

Today was a good day. Why? The reasons are many. I got to sleep in to ten after another six day fifty-five hour plus work week that I should have called in sick two days, but didn't as we are slammed. I'm feeling the best I've felt all week. Today had 'football weather' meaning rainy and cloudy so I don't feel guilty for watching football all day. ...And I discovered the NFL RedZone TV channel.

If you are a NFL fan and/or have ADD, ti is the greatest thing in the world! Basically the RedZone shows all the interesting stuff that is going down in the league in realtime. If a team is in the red-zone threatening to score, they show it. A team trying to make a comeback late? They show it. Two games at interesting points? They split the screen and show it. Fantastic!

Basically, if the games that are available to you to watch are uninteresting, watch the RedZone. Chances are, something interesting is happening in a game somewhere.

Sadly, today was a free trial. But it was successful. I may have to make a call to my provider to see about getting it activated. I'd happily pay five bucks a month more for just that channnel. Unfortunately, they will probably want twenty because it is packaged with twenty other channels that I won't watch.

A Camper For Mike!

Happy Labor Day everyone! Haven't been posting much (or anything) lately as I have been pretty busy performing labor at work, if you can call mouse herding labor... Pretty much six tens for a while now. My work isn't physical, but I sure come home tired in the head. Anyways it has been really nice to have three days off with nothing planned. Enough of that, lets get on to stuff that has to do with the title...

For quite awhile I have dreamed of the perfect camper. I have no use for a big fancy motorhome or trailer that can't travel far off the pavement, I want something that can go almost anywhere. Today, while doing some web-surfing I think I found the perfect one. The XP Camper.

This here is my perfect camper. A few standout items that make me love it... The diesel appliances, no propane. It looks to be setup to go a long time being self contained with solar panels and 80 gallons of fresh water. It sits on a flat utility bed on the truck, which allows for more room, and more utility when the camper is off. It looks to be made with good marine quality fixtures. The only downfall I see is that it is pretty spendy for a fully outfitted camper, north of $70k w/ a kitted out flatbed installation. That does not include the truck. ...Always a catch. You can save 30k by buying a shell and kitting it out yourself.

Time to start saving!
