steelers win, move to 3-3

last night was an opportunity for my sports nightmare to either continue down a road towards despair, or come to a merciful end.  thankfully, despite a dubious beginning, the steelers prevailed over the bengals and helped me wake up from the nightmare. 

these sunday night games are killing me.  the game doesn't get over until 11:30, and then i'm way too amped to go to bed.  monday morning comes way too soon, and i'm walking around in a stupor.  at least a win helps make it bearable. 

antonio brown is quickly becoming one of my favorite players.  he is so good, and just seems to fight for every yard.  he doesn't miss much, and reminds me of a guy you may have heard of named hines ward.  except much more athletic.  he was very good last night, and would have had an impressive statistical night if there wasn't some sort of special teams penalty called on every punt.  ridiculous. 

it was also fun to see the new kid make it to the end zone for the first time.  rainey is fast, and while i get tired of watching him run right into the backs of his lineman and fall down when he runs between the tackles, the play they ran down in the red zone was beautiful, and a great hole opened up for him to turn the jets on and fly into the end zone.  congrats, rain man. 

what can i say about heath?  he is having a probowl season.  if he's not catching td passes, he's catching alley-oop passes for 2-point conversions.  when he's not converting third-and-nines across the middle, he's sealing the edge for the third string running back to pick up some yards.  he is an all around tight end, and an unsung hero in the nfl.  much love and respect, heath. 

and i must end with 007.  yeah he made some mistakes.  he tried to do too much on at least 3 occasions where it came back to bite him.  but in the end, he won, which is what he does.  he wins.  he finds a way.  he overcomes the odds.  he overcomes some major injuries to his offensive line.  he overcomes only being able to work his 3rd-5th string running backs.  he overcomes an early interception and fumble.  he overcomes several drops by his marquis receiver.  and he wins. 

go steelers!

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.
