The Nasty Boys

So I was hanging out with Matt Feldhues and James Bonar tonight and they have never heard of the Nasty Boys. What is wrong with society?

Just check out Randall Kirk Myers

Did anyone else notice that at the beginning of the second video they showed Jose Canseco getting ready for a steroid injection?

A game that can't be won, only played

Did anyone else notice this weekend that Will Smith was in just about every movie this weekend? Let's see, Hitch, Men in Black, Enemy of the State, and Bagger Vance were all on Saturday or Sunday. Will Smith is taking over the world.

Anyhow, Theresa and I watched Bagger Vance when it was on. It really sucked you in once you started watching. If you haven't seen the movie, basically, Matt Damon was a great amature golfer at one time, then he had to go fight in WWI, was gone for 15 years or something and came back to play against two of the greatest golfers of their time. Will Smith plays Bagger Vance, Junuh's (Matt Damon's) caddy who came out of nowhere. He basically talks to him throughout the movie about life but using golf as his platform. I really loved this scene because it puts everything in perspective. Bagger puts the decision making on Junuh, he tells him he can start or stop. The great thing about starting was in order to do that, he had to lay his burden down and to stop, he was alone with his burden, letting his past control him. It just seems backwards to do things like that.

PS, check out the REAL Starburst poll. Let's compare all the colors of Starburst, not the crappy yellow ones to spam, chocolate covered cicadas, or rotten eggs.

Clean Slate

After noticing that everyone is now blogging, actually it was Stech and Ian and now Brad, I figured I'd give this another shot. I guess the main reason that I don't post is because I've never had too much interesting to say. I think I'll keep this one simple though, especially since nobody will read this for quite some time.

As you can tell, I erased all of my previous posts. As I was doing that I was thinking about how much that must resemble forgiveness in God's eyes. As hard as I try, I can't have the posts back, I can try to remember them and rewrite some of the stuff that was written, but they basically are gone forever. I'm starting fresh. I don't know if I don't remember that feeling, never felt that feeling, or constantly feel that feeling about forgiveness. I still think that all of my past sin is with me, regardless of God forgiving it, I think I picture God to be a bit like me, always having that trump card on me saying "Sure you did good now, but remember in 1992 when you lied to your mother?" or "Lusting again are we pervert?". It seems elementary, but I'm realizing that God's forgiveness doesn't hinge on my past. God has forgiven me for all of my past sins and will forgive anything I do in the future as long as I ask for it. The sad reality of it is that the only way to get completely away from our sin it to hate it as much as God does (I learned that from Justin Hall).
