tough week 1 loss, 0-1

well, it's good to have football back.  no, last night's game really didn't go the way i hoped, but, in all honesty, it didn't end up being much of a surprise to me, either.  i've been telling everyone that i was worried about the youth on our defense, and especially without harrison or clark last night, it was an obvious issue. 

what i hadn't worried about was the running game. looks like that may be an issue, too. 

and of course, the offensive line coming down with every ailment from short of west nile during the course of the game feels familiar.  hard to utilize all our speed and weapons on offense when your line is below average at best. 

so, it was tough to lose, especially to that waving, gesturing, drama king prima donna who couldn't have practiced much this offseason, what with his busy tv schedule.  however, it was a tough environment on opening day, going into denver against a very hyped-up broncos team and crowd.  the steelers showed some good things, and will certainly have some things to work on before they welcome the offensively inept amazing new york jets to heinz field next week. 

football is back!  and that's a good thing, no matter what the steelers did.

i will give you a new name

in our church, we are continuing with a series called "letters from Jesus," in which we are looking at the seven letters in the beginning of revelation addressed to seven churches in asia.  we are imagining what it would be like if we were to receive a hand-written letter from Jesus to our church.  what would it say?  how would we be encouraged?  how would we be challenged?  we've looked at three of the letters now.  this week we looked at the letter to the church in pergamum.  the letter to them includes some harsh criticism of some of their behavior, but it also says that Christ understands how difficult their situation is.  and in case they feel like they are stuck in their sinfulness, Jesus says something amazing to them:  i will give you a new name.  the world gives us so many names, doesn't it?  our parents, of course, give us our birth names.  but the naming doesn't stop there.  it continues right on through elementary school, high school, and into t

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
