What the heck was up with that touchdown Jesus thing?  Was God mad?  Was Jesus mad?   I’ll be honest, I hope in 2100 years there is a statue of this on a major national highway.  But let’s be honest.  I think this is a sign that the anti-christ is coming.  I’ll feed you baby birds.  1) The Bengals had a decent draft.  2) THE REDS ARE STILL IN CONTENTION FOR FIRST PLACE!!!!!! Holy Cow.  I used to be a big, big baseball kid.  In weight and enthusiasm.  Then the strike happened.  I lost a lot of faith.  Not sure why.  I can name every player on the reds 1990 World Series team.  I idolized this man.  I had a poster of the Nasty Boys for years. But after the strike, something happened.  I still love the game.  It’s just been hard to get into Reds baseball because they have been well…..average.  Not like Bengals crappy where it’s so bad, your despair seems to carries you through it all.  Just lukewarm.  Not good.  But not terrible. Anyways, I’m back on the bandwagon.  Call me fair-weather.  You might be right  I see it more like a prodigal son kind of thing.

Wait weren’t we talking about touchdown Jesus and the coming Apocalypse?   This is why my students love me.  So last week I was on vacation.  I just received a promotion.  Wich is why I have been so busy and have been neglecting you all.  My humble apologies.  SO last week, I’m at my mom’s in Phoenix.  I wake up. Check my Twitter, like a good twentysomething male.  And I see this.  Instantly, I knew it was the beginning of the end.  Why?  Because there is no way, in a sane world, touchdown Jesus burns down, and maybe five hundreds yards away, this thing still stands.  (If you’re from Dayton and went to Kings Island during your  youth, hopefully you get this)

While I’m at it:  HOW FREAKING AMAZING WAS JUNE 23 IN TERMS OF SPORTS?!!  The Reds won.  People were actually talking about soccer.  Like for real.   And that amazing tennis match.  Truly a unique day.

Also check out a band called Straight White Lines.  They’re pretty sweet.

Till next time…

Some Stuff That I Like

Gasoline Heart

A true rock band.  To sound like a thirteen hear old girl:  IMO one of the few real Christian bands left.  I’m not kidding.  Buy their album “You Know Who You Are.”  Then, quit being cheap  and purchase “Nostalgia Ain’t What It Used to Be.”  You’ll be a better person for it.

Art of Manliness

It’s okay ACNS faithful.  Once a while, go read another blog.  After your done with ours.  Then come straight back.  Or Steve D will hunt you down like the hockey fan he is.   I’m not kidding.  I don’t understand half of his tweets because they are about hockey.  Sorry, I’m what you would call an American.

How I Met Your Mother

It’s like Friends, but with an actual story.  Also I think Friends was geared towards chicks.  HIMYM is something dudes can enjoy.

I’m just that good.

The Cincinnati Reds

First place! I’m starting to believe again.   Its because Eric Davis works in the front office.  I refuse to see any other reason.

The Bronze Episode

Such a cool band.  Violins.  Rock.  Emoish tendencies.  The good kind.  Not the neo green kind.    Get their EP.  Its good. I’m a little nervous that the rest of their stuff will wear out quickly.  But for now, this is a Luke Carey staple.  While you’re at it, listen to another Luke Carey staple:  You, Me, and Everyone We Know.  AKA Fall Out Boy without the suck.
