Soccer

Soccer has been a big part of my life since I was young. I played from 10 till about 19. That's all I wanted to do. Made varsity team in High School all 4 years, and even got named to the All State team. That was a long time ago. Today I enjoy coaching children. The game has so much more to teach than just a sport. I find it to be so amazingly beautiful to watch when done right. So very funny when 8, 9, and 10 yr. olds get it wrong as they will do more often than not. But when they get that one shot, that one trick, or that new fake that they have practiced for so long, right. When it's perfect for the very first time, man.... no words can describe it. That "I knew it would work" look on their face is all I need.

The former statements hold true for FC Liverpool as well. Go Reds.

No McCain No Way

Sen. John McCain does not care about the people of this nation. He obviously does not care how many lives are lost, how much sorrow an American wife, child, or parent will feel as long as he is winning. He lost in Vietnam and now by God, he's gonna win. Wake up people! We have been living under fascist rule wrapped in the guise of patriotism. Our people, and our economy can not stand another four to eight years of people who are out for the swelling of their own wallets. How can you watch innocents die while reaping the financial benefits, and say that you are morally justified in your actions. I am always wary of those who do what "God" called them to do. Their calling is usually wrapped up in their own agendas. This nation was founded on the principal of "By the people, for the people". Not, by the one for the one. I say that if you are truly a moral person then there is no way that you can place your vote behind Sen. John McCain. We are expected to be lemmings, following in line, one after the other, even though it may lead us off a cliff. I will not jump. Not for him, not for anyone.

For My Wife

If any man was ever blessed,
Then surely it be me,
By you.
