Confession's of a Football Mind
In the words of Dave Grohl, "I've got another confession to make." I was pleasantly surprised by this passed weekends events. As many of you know, Dru and I don't have cable. Please don't feel sorry for us. It is a personal choice that we have made. This being the case, we only have but two channels. The first being TBN and the second being ABC or locally KQ2. To say the least, our viewing opportunities are limited. We still get to watch great shows like Grey's Anatomy and Lost, and even though I am not a huge NBA fan, I have enjoyed this years finals.
This past weekend was the U.S. Open (for golf). If given the choice I most definitely would have chosen to watch that event. I know that there were many exciting moments that I missed and that makes me sad. That's not my confession however. Here is my confession:
This past weekend I actually enjoyed watching The World Cup!
Now, if you truly know me, you might be wondering if Hell has frozen over at this very second. "What is he thinking?" probably also comes to mind. I know there are those who would nay say the festivities. To be perfectly honest I would have joined them in the past. But my mind has been opened. True, the scoring is limited but I found the action to be riveting.
Now, I am not going to say that watching soccer will ever take the place of a Buckeye football game. That's not even a question to consider. I will say that I don't know that I can continue to criticize the most recognized/played game in the world.

I must say that it really was not bad this year. I actually enjoyed myself for most of the time. Granted, some of that time was spent playing disc golf, watching V for Vendetta, and simply hanging with the "Burn Boys," but overall it was a good time.
Here are 3 things I enjoyed:
-I am pleased with the direction that our Bishop is taking us. It is about time we have a Bishop who recognizes that "revitalization" MUST take place.
-Being a Young Adult, I was skeptical when I heard they were going to have a young adult panel for the Monday morning teaching hour. After hearing them, they did great. I think the best advice given, this really goes for any ministry be it young adult or not, was ministries often have to reinvent themselves every 2 to 3 years.
-The Budget. I know what your thinking, "Why would he enjoy the budget?" Let me tell you. There was absolutely no discussion whatsoever. It was fabulous. The budget was presented. The "call to question" was submitted and the budget was passed. The entire assembly erupted in applause. It was great!
Yes...There were things that I didn't enjoy. I am trying my best to stay positive for this particular post. Perhaps the others will come out shortly, but for now I intend on smiling.
