11/12/09 - A Fine Day Indeed

Today is a good day. Yes, the weather sucks. Yes, I have to work. Yes, I have to drive to JFK...during rush hour. But at the end of the day, my wife will be here. For good this time, not just for a visit. So today is a good day. It starts a hectic weekend. We start our season tomorrow. As previously stated, we've got Zeke coming in to town on Friday, got Bobby G. and the Seton Hall Pirates coming in on Sunday, and then we've got a 6 AM game on Tuesday at St. Peter's. So needless to say, I will be busy and tired come Wednesday. Lots to do, but this is when the fun starts. God I love college basketball. And I love my Wife. Until next time.

It's a Beautiful Day...

...outside and I am stuck inside doing film exchange. For those of you that don't know what this is, I pray that you never find out. For those of you that do know, you understand my plight. But it must get done. Other than that, on the basketball end, we are getting ready to go to Lafayette for a retreat and scrimmage this weekend. It should be a good time for our guys, or at the very least a very good meal on Friday night.

I am sure that very few of you know that I am a huge soccer fan. I believe that I became one when I started playing back at the age of 12. Or it could be that one of my best friends played soccer at UVA. Whatever may have triggered this doesn't matter, but let it be known that I am a fan. I say this because our men's team here at Monmouth has clinched a regular season league championship and will be hosting the conference tournament next weekend. They have a very good chance of winning the tournament this year, and if they were to falter, I think they have a solid chance to be an at-large team in the NCAA Tournament. This is a big deal considering that we are such a small school. I will be there to support, as not only am I a big fan of soccer in general, but I am a fan of this MU Men's Soccer Team and their coaches. It will be a busy weekend next weekend being that they host the tournament and we have our opening games as well. Friday and Sunday. MU vs the Fighting Isiah Thomas' and Random NEC Team vs. the Fighting Rob McCourt's in the first round of the NEC Tournament on Friday, and on Sunday we play Seton Hall.
