Sunday funday, the perfect way to end the week. The NFL season is upon us, and I couldn’t be happier. Binge watching football games every Sunday is a national hobby.
The best Sundays of the year come during the seventeen week season. Those days are filled with food, beer, and naps. Everything a man needs; all in one day.
Even though my Rams left me, I’m still a huge football guy. I may not have a home town team anymore, but I still have a love for the game.
Hopefully this season will be one for the ages. But even if it’s not, there will still be plenty of watch parties to attend.
Sunday football has transitioned into a social event, rather than a sporting event. Which is one of the reasons the NFL is the most popular sport league in the United States.
Last year my apartment didn’t have cable. Which was devastating to me, because I was unable to watch any of the games. Thankfully my new place has cable, plus my roommates and I purchased the NFL Sunday ticket. Which will give us access to every single game.
This fall you can catch me on the couch every Sunday.
In one month I will be starting my fourth year of college. Meaning graduation is right around the corner. It is truly a bitter-sweet feeling. I’m excited to start this new chapter of my life, but there’s also a part of me that is terrified.
Usually by senior year, you would start to have an idea of what you want to do. But the truth is, I don’t have a clue. I guess I’m just hopping a career will land in my lap after receiving my diploma.
If all else fails, I’ll move to Hawaii and live in a van down by the ocean(sorta Chris Farely reference).
I could also travel. Seeing the world is on my bucket list, and I can’t think of better time. Fresh out of college, no job, no real responsibilities, it would be nice. But it would also cost money, which is something broke college students don’t have.
Whatever I decided to do I hope I’m happy. Because at the end of the day, that’s the only thing that matters. So wish me luck, but don’t worry. Whether I’m backpacking Europe, or living in a van down by the river (real Chris Farely reference) just know I will be smiling regardless.
Welp it’s that time of the year again. The traditional family vacation. Since I was 8 years old my family has been traveling to Destin Florida. This will mark the 14th anniversary of our beach getaway.
It’s always been an amazing time, and I’m very pleased that we all still take part. Hopefully this tradition will continue into my future my family. But until that time comes, I’m just happy to be here.
Family time is healthy, it’s necessary, and even addicting. Since I have been groomed into this lifestyle, I think I will be able to deliver when it comes to fulfilling needs for my future family vacations.
I can only hope that one day I will be revered by my kids the same way my brothers and I look up to our mom and dad. Even though that won’t be for quite sometime, it’s reassuring that I will have amazing grandparents to back me up every step of the way!
My advice to all of you: Hangout with your parents. Learn something new from them, and really enjoy the moments. Because at the end of the day, family is the only thing we have in this world.
Until next time,
Last night I got to watch one of my favorite events, the MLB’s homerun derby, which took place in Miami FL, and it was nothing short of spectacular. The biggest sluggers in the world meet up at Marlins Park to put on a hitting clinic.
The odds on favorite to win was Giancarlos Stanton. Stanton, who won the event last year, got upset in the first round by a new comer Gary Sanchez. This was a major shock to me, not just because Stanton was the favorite, but also because he was beaten in his home town arena.
After Giancarlo’s early exit, my attention shifted to Aaron Judge. A rookie for the NY Yankees, and the current homerun leader in baseball. Judge’s stature is what sets him apart from everyone else. He is 6’7 and weighing just over 280 pounds, he looks like a superhero. I was astonished while Judge crushed homerun after homerun. He made it look so easy, even his swing was effortless; and he still hit the ball over 500 ft.
As the derby came to an end, and Aaron Judge solidified his victory with a 513 foot bomb. It dawned on me how great this kid is going to be. He’s only 25 years old and already has the potential to be the greatest hitter ever. I’m a die-hard Cardinals fan, but is it too late to switch to the Yankees?? Asking for a friend….
