Lucky Charms

As I sit here eating my Chocolate Lucky Charms, I notice insane similarities between the non-marshmallow bits and dog food.  They don’t taste like dog food, but I wonder if the same machine is used to make the shapes.

Early Morning

After much scrambling on Friday, my schedule for next week is pretty much set with no shortage of travel.  I will actually be local for a couple of days this week.

I’ll wave to everyone as I head south through Chicago and down I-57 tomorrow.

2010 Football Season is over

At least for me.

I am a Chicago fan although I do prefer the White Sox over the Cubs, but I support my teams against all others.  Many a time I have been accused of not being a sports fan or being a fair-weather fan.

I keep up with standings although I will not sit down and watch every game.  I will, however, sit and watch play-offs and championship games.  I have always preferred to actually play the sport than watch it.  Most games do not interest me when there is nothing on the line.  If you watch an early season game and a play-off game the difference in enthusiasm and drive is apparent.  It makes a much more interesting game when each team has something to lose.

Life is too short to watch every game where some overpaid player is more worried about a potential free agency to a high paying team than taking one for the team and city that he represents.

I was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs.  Chicago always has and will always be my city.  When we do well, I cheer.  When we do poorly, I remain hopeful.

I am a Chicago fan.  I am hopeful that next year will bring the ring for the Bears.

Green Bay is up 14-0 against the Bears. For some reason we were under the impression the game started at 3 local. So we turned it on and the game was already in the second quarter. Doh!

Watching the Bears today is massively depressing. They are better than they’re playing today. But being a Chicago fan, “almost” is a constant. Here’s hoping the second half shows recovery.

Bears Fans

A Bears fan, a Steelers fan, and a Packers fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves his team more.

The Steelers fan insists he is the most loyal. “This is for the Steelers” he yells, and jumps off the side of the mountain.

Not to be outdone, the Bears fan is next to profess his love for his team. He yells “This is for the Bears!” and pushes the Packers fan off the mountain.

First Pic

His fingers are a bit in the way but this is better than the previous picture and more appropriate than his first pics.  Don’t worry, more to come.

Awaiting a Baby

Here we sit awaiting James Sullivan Peschke to join the madness that is our world.  I have worked my butt off to ensure my work is caught up but the pain being so good is I’m available for work. I made a trip to St. Louis, MO in the middle of a snow storm.

Tomorrow I Head to Green Bay, WI for some fun, adventure, and an hour’s worth of work (hopefully).
