game day: rise up, steeler nation!

well, it's game day and, even though it's a saturday i'm up at 6am.  i got up at 5 and tossed and turned for a while and finally got out of bed.  it's like christmas morning up in here.  i am just too excited!  it's steelers - ravens day! 

in about 10 1/2 hours i will either be incredibly overjoyed or very disappointed.  that's just the way it goes.  but for now, in anticipation, i will let the excitment fuel my adrenaline and anticipation.  and while we wait, i invite you to enjoy some steeler-inspired music.  i'll start with this, my favorite favorite steeler song ever.  it's by a guy named joby harris, who is a very cool man, and this song is just really well done in my opinion.  so turn it up loud, get your terrible towel, and let's get this thing cranked up!

or, if you prefer country music, here's a great song about steeler nation by dusty drake:



or how about one for the ladies?



or there's this one, called "how bout 'dem pittsburgh steelers" (and this one has the added bonus of displaying my old steelers room.  i now have a new mancave which i will share with you at the right time).



maybe polka is more your speed?



in more recent years, this song has become a staple of all steelers defense enthusiasts:



but finally, for the purists, there is always the classic "here we go."  enjoy.



HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!!!!!!

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!

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. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out there...you make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
