Labor Day Fun 2008

Tomorrow I am getting together with most of the people who were on my volunteer youth staff at the church were I was a youth pastor. I have not hung out with that entire group in about 3.5 years and that has been way too long. I developed such rich and good friendships with everyone […]

Michigan 2008 Football Season Predictions

Nothing major, just some thoughts of what I think may happen this year. Michigan will definitely finish above .500 and go to a bowl game and keep their consecutive bowl game streak alive. The will lose to that team up north, but they will beat that team down south. No reason why I think this […]

My Favorite Time of Year
