Are You Ready for Some Football?

NCAA 06 for PS2NCAA 06 for PS2 as I cover it

As mid-July draws closer and closer, I get more and more excited. NCAA Football 06 is soon to be released. When that happens, say sayonara to me, because I won't be seen around here too much. I'll be busy winning National Championships with the University of Florida.

Sure, I'll still be around every once in a while. I may create a new category for journal entries related to the games. I'll certainly still update this site from time to time with other news and tidbits, including new sermons and any new hymns and poems I may write (it's been a while there). But, for the most part, my free time will be spent playing the game.

Presentation of the Augsburg Confession (observed)

John 15:1-11

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame...

That is the verse from Psalm 119—the banner—by which these words were presented:

To Emperor Charles V...Most invincible Emperor, Caesar Augustus, most clement Lord: Your Imperial Majesty has summoned a meeting of the Empire here at Augsburg to consider taking action against the Turk, discussing how best to stand effectively against his fury and attacks by means of military force. The Turk is the most atrocious and ancient hereditary enemy of the Christian name and religion. This meeting is also to consider disagreements in our holy religion, the Christian faith, by hearing everyone's opinions and judgments in each other's presence. They are to be considered and evaluated among ourselves in mutual charity, mercy, and kindness. After the removal and correction of things that either side has understood differently, these matters may be settled and brought back to one simple truth and Christian concord. Then we may embrace and maintain the future of one pure and true religion under one Christ, doing battle under Him, living in unity and concord in the one Christian Church...

I Didn't Have My Fun

...so I'm gonna sue...

Now, it's gone too far. Some "lamer" is suing everyone in sight (related to Formula 1) because only six cars raced. I guess he (and the other two parties also bringing litigation) wanted to see something potentially deadly.

Alright, [insert random derogatory nickname, plural], it's time to grow up!

Um, Shut Up, People

Tire Flap in Formula 1

Yesterday, in Indianapolis, was run the U.S. Grand Prix, a Formula 1 race run on a modified road course inside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, site of the Indy 500. In case you haven't heard, only six cars ran the race, down from the usual 20.

It all had to do with what tires they used. The six cars running were from the three teams that run on Bridgestone tires. The other seven teams use Michelin.

I'm Expecting a Lawsuit

No, I'm neither suing nor being sued. Nor do I expect such litigation to be brought to me. This is all about something someone should not have done, but did anyway...now I expect the blame to be shifted.

St. Barnabas (observed)

Matthew 10:5-16, Acts 11:19-30; 13:1-3

Today is St. Barnabas. So, for today's entry, here's a sermon from the archives. Enjoy!

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

What we have before us is Jesus sending out the Twelve. He sends His disciples to preach a most joyous message: "The kingdom of heaven is near." "Joyous?" you say? Yes! This is the best news given for preaches to preach—the kingdom of heaven is near, that is to say, the Christ is come to take away the sins of the world.

Gators Goin' to Omaha

on to the CWS, Gators!

The Gator baseball team is headed to Omaha! What's in Omaha? The College World Series!

In a best of 3 series against the Seminoles in Gainesville, the Gators won games 1 and 2, sweeping Florida State and sending them back to Tallahassee, ending their season. Game 1 was Friday, an 8-1 thumping. Game 2 was last night, an 8-5 win. Next up is Tennessee.

Other than the football bowl loss, this has been a pretty good year so far for UF athletics (at least as the big-time sports are concerned...I can't say I've followed the other sports too much, but from what I've gathered, they've done really good, too). SEC Champs in basketball. SEC regular season champs in baseball; now, they're off to Omaha!

Go Gators!

Is He Real...or Isn't He?

a look at a star-filled romance

I hear critics and supporters on both sides of the issue. Frankly I don't know where I stand. I don't know where to stand.

For one, I'm not a fan of Tom Cruise. For another, I don't care so much about Katie Holmes. Still, there is something about this that both makes me happy for them at the same time makes me wonder.
