Kapri Bibbs, a kid I went to high school with and once begged me to join an after-school basketball league I put together, made it to Madden. He survived cuts on Sunday from the Broncos so hopefully he makes the 53-man roster for the beginning of the season.

I left my old job and started my new one two years ago today. Currently I'm driving in to coach my first JV game today and assist the Varsity game tomorrow. Life is pretty good!

That kid made my college fantasy football season last year. Good to hear him doing well in the pros so far. He can pound the rock.

 

What's floating my boat currently is that my wife and I are talking about some big changes and are 100% on the same page with them. Making the whole future process for me a lot easier and the end result will result in less travel for business and more for fun

Putting on a pair of inline rollerblades for the first time in over 10 years and still successfully skating well.

Officially (no pun intended) received my Hockey Canada Level 3 referee certification! I'm now one step closer to my goal of refereeing in the OHL or NCAA.

I found out at work today that I was hired for my position out of a pool of over 500 applicants. So that's a pretty cool feeling.

I know I've complained about referees here in the past, but I actually enjoy reffing. It's fun and it pays quite well. That's why I want to move up the ranks.

Technically worked for the NFL today.  Designed a cornhole set, boards, bags, and carrying case for the Thursday Night Football. 

 

As of today I have worked for the NFL, NBA, WNBA, and NCAA. Gotta love my job.

My Nittany Lions are still playing strong, and they won today via last second field goal. Great feeling :)

That's it. I'm officially going to go into every interview for "big boy" jobs with a massive hangover from now on :P

Saw Linkin Park in concert last night. It was amazing! Like their music or not, they have to be a must see when they're in your city.

My sister (age 21, moved back in about 3 months ago) is gone on vacation for 6 days. I know it's not a lot, but damn it's gonna be a good 6 days.

I have a couple of different jobs, for the last 46 days I've worked at least one of them. On my way into the city for one more shift.
