Back to Blogging

Most of my blogs to this point have been me rambling on and on. And on occasion I have used this as a more positive outlet for my feelings or frustrations. Either way I feel like this is as good a place as any to write out my thoughts on sports and I guess life in general. So on to start sports.

I watched the caps game tonight. I won't try to say I have always been a huge fan of the team. It’s only recently that I have started to follow them. I always prefer the home teams, but hockey just never held my interest the way football does. But with once Ovechkin showed up I started to follow the team. I must say it’s a lot of fun to watch your team play when you have the best player in the league on your side. I know a lot of people don't really care for Ovy, but I like to think its just jealousy. I do understand that he is quite a personality and some may frown upon his antics, but there is a huge difference between his antics and the all about me personality of a guy like T.O. So on to the game. Every time the caps play the fliers I always assume its going to be a loss. I never feel like we match up to them well. Tonight honestly felt like it would be the same way. But man did they come out and play with a lot of intensity. It was a nice win, and showed that the caps can really play defense as well as solid offense. Ovy's goal was sweet too.

In my own tiny realm of sports I went bowling tonight. I've been trying to learn how to hook the ball instead of just throwing it as hard as I can down the lane and hoping something good will occur. And tonight it really felt for the first time like I was able to get some consistency in my ball. I ended up with a 133, 123, 82, and a 115. The 82 game was pretty poor I had two spares and something in the area of 5 gutters on my first ball. My tenth frame went gutter spare gutter. But the important thing was I didn't get discouraged and was able to finish with a 100+ game. And now my arm is really tired, generally I don't play 4 games.

As for life, spring break is really boring. My brother is in a nursing home for 8 more days, so I don't have him to keep my occupied, my side-kick is in Baton Rouge so he's out, and everyone else is at work. This might be my worst spring break ever, or I'm being melodramatic. Either way, it is nice to sleep until 11 or 12 every day.

I got my copy of Metamorphosis this week. The book is pretty amazing. I was very disappointed by the fact that the Circle lost every fight once again, but by this point I have grown to accept it as inevitability. Seeing my name in the credits was probably the best part of the book.

I guess that will rap this up for now, my goal is to make at least one post a week. Maybe more I feel like I have something to say.
