It's Saturday! Time for some college football baby! Oh wait, nevermind... There's no playoff system in college football, so we are left with Furman/Appalachian St. and Alabama A&M/Grambling. Oh the joy!

I still have a cough, but my sore throat is a distant memory, FINALLY! My nose is still a little stuffy and today is the last day on the Z-pac, so hopefully by tomorrow or at least Monday, I'll be 100% again for the first time in what... 3 weeks or so? Unreal.

My stepson Dan has a basketball game today, so that will keep me busy for a bit. Other than that, probably some house chores and then head out to visit my folks for a bit.

How bout those Pistons baby! 14-2 after the Golden State win. Is there a more underrated clutch shooter than Billups? He has made countless shots in the final minutes of games and his free throw shooting is practically automatic. They've now opened up a 4 game division lead over the Pacers and Cavs (Sorry EG, heh). Wow, looking at the divisions, the other Eastern conference divisions are a joke, lol. I'm sorry, but leading your division w/ a .500 record is amusing.

I did get a bit further last night in King Kong, I passed just a few more levels, I'll have to check and see what my percentage is. I also started a season in NBA 2K6, beating the Sixers 100-78, but I didn't save it. I'm so ignorant. Shutup Terry.

In other news...
Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!
Daloten, Joey B. (43), Mainster (33), EightbIts (33), dylan78 (27), beserk1 (20), BearcatsFan (20), BlueDevils#1 (19)

Enough about me, what's up with you?

Good to hear your feeling a little better. I finally got rid of my cold last week that I'd been fighting for about a month. Of course now I'll probably get another one for Christmas.....

Long night for me studying, I haven't made it to bed yet. Got a test in a little over an hour, hopefully that will go well. I really hate these finals, but I probably should have kept up in class so I wouldn't have to cram like this.

I'm looking forward to the Texas-Duke basketball game, but I'll probably end up sleeping through it when I get back from my test. Go Horns!

A Saturday final really stinks! I am looking forward to the Indiana/Kentucky game today, though not a fan of either, but its a major event here in Indiana.

I am waiting to see the Louisville/Akron game. I know it doesn't look like much, but Louisville has struggled to beat teams this year so right now every game is an adventure.

School thankfully is over for me, except this one take home final that I have to email to my professor on Wednesday, other than that, I am on winter break.

I am going to watch the college football playoffs today, as well. Too bad division I-a can't get it through there thick skulls of just how exciting it would be to see the national championship decided by a playoff.

Saw you post in yesterday's bro, how have you been? Haven't seen you in a while! Hope all is well.

Wow, you haven't even made it to bed yet? That's hardcore bro. Good luck on the test!

Yup, I'm looking forward to that game as well, I totally forgot about it, lol. Should be a great game. I hate Duke, so I'll be pullin' for the Horns.

Which school are you going to? Do you get a month off like the other guys as well?

Yup, I hear ya bro. Playoffs for the National Championship is where it's at. Doubt we'll ever see it tho. Good luck on the final.

You think Codebreakers is going to be any good? I might tune in. Get well soon bro.

Duke-Texas is on tap for me, but going to do a lil Christmas Shopping before the game. Just glad I have the day off. Then me and the lady are going to see Syrnia tonight. Only bad thing is I gotta be at work a 6am tomarrow. At least I get off at 3 to see my Chiefs hook up with the Cowboys! GO CHIEFS!!!!!! But, better yet...............LET'S GO DEVILS!!! *clap clap clap* LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!!

Steve, man the Lakers won 4 straight after the win against bulls. They are now above .500. Did you see the bulls ceremony?

I've been doing pretty well, I don't post as much since I've been up at school, just don't have the time really. Most of my posts are in the college bball forum, so if you don't go in there, you probably don't see me.

My test went pretty good I guess, except the kid next to me had the worst case of sniffles I've ever heard. I don't usually get annoyed by these things, but this was ridiculous. Every 5 seconds he'd be sniffling again, I wanted to scream. Doesn't help that I haven't slept much since these tests began, so the smallest things are starting to set me off. Good news is it'll be over soon.

Hopefully Shaq can 'shoot' better than he 'shoots'

Not much up with me. I just got back from getting my haircut. I normally go every saturday morning but i had not been in 3 weeks and for a brotha, that makes for a bad looking head. Anyways, we have discovered yet another gray hair in my goattee. I noticed it this morning while looking in the mirrow and my barber pointed it out while he was shaving my goat. I guess i'm getting old, nah, that's wisdom. I only have about 2 or 3 in my hair so i'm not freaking out yet.

No college football today and that sucks. However, i'm a little fired up about Cowboys football tomorrow. I haven't had the feeling in a couple weeks now. I was pretty much going through the motions same as the offense has been looking. For some reason, I feel good about this one tomorrow. My brother is going to the game, I guess with his girlfriend as he wouldn't tell me who he was going with. If you turn up your tv and hear someone booing the Boys, that's him. I'm the only Boys fan in the family and you can imagine the crap I was about to talk on Thanksgiving day to them, that is, until Billy Cundiff blew the chip shot.

I downlowed the Spades demo last night on live arcade. I'm going to get the full version and I think i'm going to be addicted. My wife was excited about that one too so it should be fun fighting for the 360.

Well at the moment I was watching an old Rankin&Bass christmas special on Family Channel here in Canada. I'll be going to my little cousin's birthday party in a few hours.

I heard that my cousin's father in law needs a pacemaker. I hope that it turns out ok for him as i'd hate to have someone die so close to the hollidays.

Other then that things are kinda boring. I'll be doing most of my xmas shopping this week as well.

I've finally started coming to terms with my college situation. I'll apply for VT and RU at Reg. Decision, and if VT doesn't accept me, I'll go to RU and transfer after a year.

Had a vocal lesson with my voice teacher today (who by the way is a professor at VT... ) and I've been progressing nicely.

My girlfriend is going to be coming over later and we're going to watch the Grinch with Jim Carrey that's going to be airing on ABC later on tonight.

Yeah, not bad. Amazing how the Lakers can win games w/ Kobe not taking 89 shots a game, heh.

Gotcha. I figured as much.

LMAO! You should have thrown a box of Kleenex at him. I hate people that do that, haha.

LOL, I get mine cut every 2 weeks, I do it myself. I just give it a #1 all over, piece of cake, been doing it for years. I've noticed a few wisdom hairs as well. heh.

Yeah, big game against the Chiefs, no doubt. I'm feelin' good about it as well. However, if they blow this one, it might be time to start thinking about next season and play some younger guys. But...of course Parcells never thinks that way, so we'll never see Romo or Henson to see what they really have. I think Romo is fairly decent, if they do start to slide, I'd like to see him in at least 2 games this year. You never know w/ the NFL tho, all the playoff teams could lose and all the teams are right back in the mix next week w/ "must win" games, lol.

I'll send a prayer out for your cousin's father, hopefully everything works out bro.

I need to start my Xmas shopping, but I know myself too well, I'll wait until the 24th, just like every other year.

Sounds like a good plan bro. I know it's been a rough few weeks, seems like you got your head on straight now.
