Cold and Rainy.

Alabama played Mississippi State last weekend. It was one of the coldest football games I have attended since my childhood. A little bit of rain came down as well. The weather could have been better, but I still had a great time. The first half was lackluster. Here's a great photo from the blocked punt for a safety early in the game from Roll Bama Roll:

The Iron Bowl is only a few days away, and I can't wait.

I honestly wish I had more to report. The few shows I have done lately have been let downs in one way or another. On weeknights, I'm either hanging out with friends or by myself watching TV shows on DVD. It's possible that I am just in a rut, but it seems like I've felt that way for a long time. Hopefully when Football season comes to an end I can use more time on the weekends to be productive. It also seems like the cruise and time away from this office will never get here. I am glad for the friends I have and the atmosphere and excitement of the town I live in on the weekends. Those things keep me going.

A Close One

Talk about ups and downs. The 'Bama-LSU game certainly increased my already high stress level on Saturday afternoon. I assume that most people reading this either watched the game or heard a lot about it, so I won't bother with a recap. The way that our team stepped up their performance in overtime was great. Once the pictured interception was made, I knew we were going to stay undefeated. I will be using my lunch break today to purchase a ticket for this weekend's game against Mississippi State. I'll repeat myself again: We cannot let up after such a big win, especially now.

I haven't been feeling inspired to write at all lately. It has been over a month since I last picked up a pen and put it to paper. There's really no explanation other than the fact that I try to make my weekdays go by as fast as possible to make it to the weekend, which always exacts revenge and fades away before I can blink. I think I need yet another change in routine after the cruise I'm going on in January. There has to be something out there that is more fulfilling than the life I currently lead.

Bane played Cave 9 Sunday night. I can still count the ways....
