11-4

oh man, it was a good night.  the night before the night before christmas.  the pens won against their bitter rivals in a dramatic shoot out.  the steelers won dominantly over an inferior team and put themselves in great position.  and i got to eat hot chicken wing dip. 

priceless. 

anyway, i know it's christmas eve, but i am obligated to do my regular post-steelers-victory post, so here it is:

the steelers are 11 and 4, with one game to go.  if they beat those browns in 10 days, they'll have secured a week off and home field for at least the first game of the playoffs.  also, if the browns beat the ravens this sunday, the same outcome will be achieved, so, go brownies! 

on to the epic pictures:


james farrior, aka "potsie," just keeps amazing me with his play this year.  he is ageless.

it was so good to have heath back. 


forget what mark madden says, this guy is an epic steeler. 


since returning from injury, diesel has been money.


nice to see mendenhall give the ball to big legursy for the spike after scoring. 


ben gives the nation a little love after scoring.


emmanuel sanders wants it more than you.



wallace has grown into a playmaker.  for real. 


merry christmas, baby!

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. 

The Broken Path: the stations of the cross - Station 1

  during this season of lent, at the church i serve, we've been talking about brokenness.  we've been looking at the ways that our journey is often a broken journey, full of missteps, sidetracks, and dead ends.  and yet, we have been seeing, as clearly as ever, that those broken places are exactly the same places where grace grows.  the cracks are where the light shines through.   so, as a way to continue to reflect on this brokenness, the worship team thought we might do an art installation outside, on the church property, of the stations of the cross, but in a way that expressed not only the brokenness of Jesus' body and journey to the tomb, but also the brokenness of our world and our hearts.  using something i made several years ago, i thought we might be able to use old windows and broken glass to help tell the story.   so, in the end, i made eight separate stations of the cross, each one on an old window that came from an old farmhouse in bellefonte.  i used broken g

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!
