Good Life

I figured it was time to post something new seeing as though the last time was in November. Geesh!
A lot has been happening over the past several months. I have had lots of ups and contrastingly a few downs. I have been trying to really focus on the positive things in life. I find that it gets really easy to focus on the negative things that happen in life. I have kinda been on a quest to look for the good things in life. I have been finding that as I do, I am realizing how good life really is and I recognize more and more of the blessings that I have been given. Anyway, here is a little video that I just finished putting together about "The Good Life". I hope this will be the first in a series of many.

Turkey Trot

I spent this Thanksgiving in Denver with my sister's family. She has made it a bit of a tradition to run the 5k turkey trot where they live. I decided that since I have never run in an organized run/race that I would join here and my brother-in-law. I was pretty proud of myself for doing the race in under my goal time of 32 minutes. I hadn't really been training for the race and just wanted to run for enjoyment (if there is such thing). It was a great Thanksgiving so I figured I would just post a pic from after the race.

Roll Tide

Last weekend I was able to take a trip down to Alabama for the Alabama vs LSU game. It was pretty cool to see how different college football is in the south. I went with a big group of people from Jackson Hole, WY and a few of my friends from here in Provo.

The trip was pretty quick and there was a lot of travel time, but being at the game was really something. It was awesome to see how big of an event the game is. Festivities really last all weekend. There were hundreds of thousands of people there tailgating and just hanging out. Tents as far as the eye could see and a hazy mist in the sky from the thousands of grills grillin up some mean food. The stadium was packed an hour before the game to its 95,000 person capacity and there were still thousands of people outside the stadium. The entire stadium was on their feet the entire game. Old and young alike, cheering on the team. I am pretty sure I lost 5% of my hearing due to the lady behind me. How she kept up the scream the entire game is beyond me. The game was close, and when Alabama scored to retake the lead in the 4th quarter the father and his son sitting in front of me were embracing with tears rolling down their cheeks. It was really something. Bama won the game and the the after game festivities began.

All in all it was a great trip and a great experience. It was hard not to be with my Cougars for their win in Wyoming, but I figured I couldn't pass up the chance to see two top ten teams play in the south.

Thought I would share a couple of pictures from the trip.

Who is Your Daddy?

So I helped a friend out with an ad campaign pitch that he was doing for Chrysler. This is the ad that they presented. I thought it turned out kind of funny. I got a good chuckle anyway. Being childless myself, I had to go searching the halls for some parents with a little kid that I could use as a proxy for my child. This kid was a big football fan and all in all was pretty cool. I guess this would mean i married a red head. Anyway, thought I would share it.

Playoff Time!!!

I am sitting here watching the Twins and the Tigers battle it out for the final playoff spot in this years MLB postseason, so I figured it was time for me to sit down and put my predictions out there for this years MLB Playoffs.

October is one of my favorite months of the year. Not because of the changing leaves, the cool crisp air or Halloween, It is the excitement of playoff baseball. As most of you know I am a die-hard Red Sox fan, so I will be the first to admit that my predictions are not free of prejudice. Here we go.


New York Yankees
Twins or Tigers

Let's be honest, does it really matter which of these teams win this playoff game I am watching. Drawing the Yankees in the first round this year is just bad news. As much as I hate to say it....(Gulp) the Yankees are hot and should have no problem in this series. I am saying Yankees in four.


Boston Red Sox
Los Angeles Angels

If History has anything to do with the future, the Red Sox should win this series. There have been many close encounters with the Angels in the postseason, but the Red Sox have always seemed to get the best of them. I am Saying Red Sox in four.


St. Luis Cardinals
Los Angeles Dogers

I think this is a great matchup. As far as I am concerned, anything could happen in this series. Manny Ramirez has been struggling, but usually has a great postseason, but I think in this case I have to put my money on the Cardinals. Having the one-two punch of Carpenter and Wainwright could be devastating and it never hurts having the best hitter in the league. Cardinals in five.


Philadelphia Phillies
Colorado Rockies

I am going to go against the grain on this series and call the Rockies. It is just a gut feeling really. The performance of the Rockies since the All-Star break has been pretty staggering. If they make any sort of a run like they did in the postseason of 2007 then things could get ugly for a lot of people. The Phillies do have a great line-up and will be tough to beat, but I am saying Rockies in five.

Well, there you have it. I guess we will see how things turn out. I will be updating as the playoffs continue. Enjoy playoff baseball my friends!

100th Post

Happy 100th Post to me!

I hate that it took me this long to finally get to my 100th post, but... so it goes. I have vowed to myself that it wont take me as long as it has to get to 100 as it will to add another 100 to that.

Things are going well. The exciting news is that I am moving into a new place today. It is a gold course condo on the 8th hole of Riverside country club in Provo. I am excited to be moving in and hope that it will hold some new adventures for me. The other good news is that I am headed to Dallas this weekend for the BYU vs Oklahoma game. I am still working for the team doing video highlights and other media services and I am really excited about the game this weekend in the new Cowboys stadium. Pictures of the stadium and my new place will be coming shortly.

Lots of other things going on that I will be posting about in the near future.

Getting ready for Football

Many of you know that I work for the BYU Football team. In light of fall camp opening this Friday and just the excitement for the season that is starting to build, I thought I would share the official BYU Football commercial so that you can start getting hyped too.

Go Cougars!
