I thought the new NFL kickoff rule was going to ruin the game. With the kickers having to kick five yards closer, you would think there would be a lot more touchbacks, but I think special teams coaches are having their kickers kick it higher not farther, making for more air time which gives the coverage more time to get down the field and try to pin the opponent inside the twenty.
It’s tough watching Michael J Fox decline. Here he is in a Nike commercial for the Marty McFly shoes. But man, the guy was hilarious in Sunday’s Curb Your Enthusiasm as he made light of his battle with Parkinson’s.

My church small group wants to read and discuss Heaven is for Real. I’m not comfortable reading an account of a four-year-old boy’s trip to heaven because I think the story is a hoax. I think my small group means well, but discussing this book seems a bit absurd to me, and I’m usually an open-minded person. I’m not sure how to say that I don’t think we should read this sort of book without looking like a jerk.
Not that it really matters, but maybe it does, but the coauthor of the book was the same one that co-wrote with Sarah Palin on Going Rouge.
Bank of America is cutting 30,000 jobs. I’m always amazed when I see layoffs that are almost double the size of the population of my home town.
