Random Musings on a Thursday Afternoon

So I woke up feeling pretty good today. Good enough that I actually decided to go to work dressed like a gentleman. Dress pants, button down, with the sweater vest. Now I know some of you are thinking "sweater vest"? Yes, I said it. In our athletics office we have a few gentleman that do their thing when it comes to getting dressed for work. So, I couldn't come dressed if I didn't come correct. For example, one of my friends who is a football coach cam today in black slacks, a black button down, and a black and gray cardigan. A well dressed man indeed. It was a good thing that I came dressed today being that we had a special visitor in former Providence coach Tim Welsh. It was fun to sit with him for a few and talk about when he recruited me while I was in high school at RBR. Nice man, unfortunately I had to say no to him at the time. Seems like I could have played for him. But I will take the course of action that I took a thousand times over instead of wondering "what if".

With all of this basketball talk, we are getting closer to the start of the regular season. Only about two weeks left. As a matter of fact, we had a blue/white scrimmage the other day, and we have two more this Sunday and next Saturday. They should let us know where we are at in terms of what we need to tune up before our home opener vs. Florida International University and the Fightin' Isiah Thomas'.

On another note, my wife shall be moving back east that week as well, so it should be a good week with her moving back, and  us hopefully getting our first win in our new building.

Ok, some of you know that I like to play Guitar Hero. That being said, I may be hanging up my guitar strap. Only to replace it with a turntable. Of sorts. You see, there is this new game called DJ Hero. I got it the other day and it is really a lot of fun. Granted some of the songs are not the greatest, but the game play aspect of it is great. I felt like DJ Premier...if he was just starting on the turntable, and only had one hand. But, I will get better and undoubtedly, it will become my favorite game. The reviews that I have seen have all pretty much said that it's a good one, and I will have to agree. I wish I had four I could give this game four thumbs up.....

It should be noted that the originator of the sweater vest at monmouth, the ocho, also rocked an argyle sweater vest in the office today. Boom
