See you soon

Sorry folks, there won't be any blogging happening here for a while. My mom passed away this morning, so I'm off to Ontario. Take care!

Thursday Cheers and Jeers

It's Super Bowl week, so hopefully - for those of us who cheer for a certain Wisconsin-based team - there's more cheering than jeering going on!

  • Aaron Rodgers. The Packers' quarterback is handling his first (of many?) Super Bowl experience with class and (especially during Media Day) an infinite amount of patience.
  • Harvard Property Management. Granted, being booted out of my paid parking spot isn't ideal, but at least they offered me a reasonable alternative. Things could be worse.
  • Regina Minor Football and the Regina Thunder. The two organizations combined forces to put on an informative coaching clinic last weekend.
  • Super Bowl Media Day. Is it really necessary to ask the Packers' current quarterback 5,075 questions about the Packers' former quarterback? It's been three years. Let's all move on.
  • Ontario. Seriously, when did my home province become overrun by wimps? A little snow and everything shuts down? Sad.
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers. No explanation required.
Has anyone impressed/depressed you lately? Share with the rest of us, if you please!
