This is what we waited for ... ?

Four years? This was supposed to get us non-soccer people all excited? Umm, guess not. Good job fellas. Run around the field some more. Wake me up when this is all over.

Still happy to say I haven't watched one highlight of the World Cup.

Pulling the Plug

That's it. I haven't offered anything to the blogging community for quite some time. Hell, I haven't offered anything for myself in a while either.

I'm trying to sort out a lot that is on my mind and frankly, not sure where I'm headed.

It takes a truly dedicated person to do this stuff. I'm not that guy. Thanks to any who read this thing when it actually was a living, breathing entity. Sorry that I haven't done anything in quite a while.

To those I've met through this ... it was freaking awesome.

To those who stumble upon this now ... go check some of the archives ... there were a couple of good things in there somewhere.

I may one day come back. I have to find my voice again. Hell, I have to find myself and my passions. Right now, besides my wife, my life seems to be sucked out of me. Trying to figure out the road ahead for me. Don't worry ... I'm not depressed, just need to analyze some stuff in my life.

Take care!

Are we starting to take this a little too far?

A Long Time Coming

I know I am a couple of nights past on posting this, but the reality took a day or so to set in. It has been a long, long time since this city could say "Who Dey" and really mean it! This is a new time in city. The Cincinnati Bengals are back baby! It's a great thing. This past Sunday was a statement game for this Bengals team. The road to the AFC North is now going to go through Cincinnati. Prepare for it to stay that way for years to come! The Bungles of old are no longer. This is the Bengals ... the team with either the best or second best offense in the NFL. No defense has figured out how to stop them. In the past three weeks, 3 of the NFL's Top 10 Defenses have allowed 117 points (avg. 39/game) to the Bengals offense. And, let's be real ... if the Bengals wouldn't have gotten bored with the Ravens, that beatdown would have been much worse. It is written. The Bengals have arrived. In Marvin We Trust!


Small update on me. Since getting that off my chest and not keeping it to myself and letting it eat away at me, I have been in a better mood. I have decided to go back and get my MBA, but have to bust my ass over the next few weeks to get ready for the GMAT and apply by Jan. 9. The school of my choice will still accept applicants during that first week. So, it is a great goal to have and one that I'm excited about. I don't know what it is about school, but the interest is there for me to continue my education. Funny ... when in school all you want to do is work ... when in work all you want to do is go back to school.

Also, I'm seeking outlets to recapture my love of sports writing. Back in high school, I won several awards for my sports reporting for the high school paper in state competitions. It is something that I haven't done in a while, so I will have to get back into that frame of mind, but again, something to look forward to. So, I have that going for me.

A Funk of Sorts

Well, I’ve been in a funk for quite some time and while I can address where the issue lies, there isn’t a lot I can do about it right now. I can handle some of it, but actually getting in and “fixing” the issue won’t be easy.

The issue lies with “Am I happy?” Happy about what? Well, that pretty much means anything right now. It stems from the issue that I don’t have a fuckin clue what I want to do with my life. I have ideas running rampant in my head, but don’t have any plans. It drives me fucking crazy. Now, I’m talking about occupation, future, career, etc. I know what I want to do with my life as a family-man and we’ll get there. But, I have to find a way to be happy taking care of my family through working. What I’m doing right now isn’t it. I go there and get pissed, try to come home in a good mood and can’t fake it any longer. The Wife has it figured out and feels like this is her fault because we have to have her finish her higher education.

I know not everyone finds their “dream job,” but I have to at least find something that will keep me interested. The work I do would be great, as long as it was for someone I was happy with.

I don’t know … am I making any fucking sense? I’m going to try to figure this out through the blog for sometime. I know I’ve been distant as hell from this thing because when you are constantly in a shitty mood like I am, there isn’t anything that you really want to write about. Maybe I will just try to get some ideas and bounce them off you all. I just need to figure some things out.
