Sad Guys on Trading Floors

With all the craziness going on with the stock market these days, this blog does a great job of bring some smiles to the teary faces...

Kevin takes a break from riding his lightcycle to check up on the Tron market.

Penn State Riot After OSU Victory

Watching the various videos that were taken Saturday night following Penn State's win over Ohio State give me shivers, and not the same kind of shivers I get when I watch JoePa tribute videos, or moving Penn State victory montages, but shivers of fear, disgust, and anger.

Great, so we won a big game... let's celebrate by ripping down lampposts,  uprooting shrubbery, and closing down a main street.  We are... Penn State.  We are... a storied football program.  We have... been there before.  Why on earth do we need to act like we're some Division I AA school that just knocked off Michigan (last year, not this year of course)?  I'm not sure if it's the fact that the town is currently populated by a large percentage of students who don't know the history, have not experienced the winning, or what.... though one could argue that the past three seasons have not been too shabby.

Anyway, it's embarrassing as a Penn State Alum and even more embarrassing as a football fan who argues that his team is one of the best teams in the country week in and week out.  Fans acting like naive, never been there before idiots, after a big win just undercut this claim. 

Instead of property destruction, let's all start saving our money now and party on the streets of Miami in January.

Wedding Photos

Before the weekend hits, I wanted to let everyone know that our wedding photos can be found on Facebook and Flickr. Facebook features the photos shot by the photographer, while Lauren took some time aggregating all of the photos shot by you and posted them to her Flickr account.

Check out the Flickr pictures here.

If you have a Facebook account, you should be able to access the various albums that Lauren posted to see the great shots from the photographer.

Long Run

Perfect day for a run in the neighborhood. I'm not sure if it is the fall air, a stressful week, or just biting off more than I expected, but it was certainly my longest run in awhile - just under 7 miles. Time to cool off with a nice shake (thanks Rolando for the blender) and a walk with the dog. I hope all of you are experiencing this same wonderful fall weather.

Arts on the Ave & Penn State v. Purdue

[I had supposedly posted an entry from my iPhone as I was watching the Penn State game that talked about the annual Arts on the Avenue held in Del Ray each year, as well as the football game, but apparently it did not post. To that end, the festival was great, we bought some art that will be used very near in the future to decorate a room, and Penn State beat Purdue to go to 6-0. All in all, it was a good day, and a great weekend. I apologize though for the blank entry until now.]

Puppy Run

Took the pup for her first run tonight and she did pretty well. I took her on a one mile loop that you can see here.

Thought for sure it would wear her out, but it took a good 3 hours for her to finally settle down and curl up. Maybe next time we should try two miles...
