What You Didn't Hear About Last Night..................

The Pennsylvania Primary was yesterday. Most of the hype was about the Obama/Hillary race. What you didn't hear was the numbers for the Republican Party. Ron Paul walked away with 128,000 votes. That is a huge number. Especially since the media has told everybody that Ron Paul dropped out. Which isn't true.

AH Hahahahahahahahahahaha..................................

Just watch it.

That is a Red Sox fan for you.


"...........When it becomes easier to be a Christian the Jesus movement kinda loses its steam. I actually get really concerned about the future, about areas where it becomes easier and easier and more comfortable. The worst thing is when Christians get comfortable, when there is no suffering. That is when the Jesus movement isn't at its best. We do best underneath the empire, we do best on the margins, we do best when your boot is on our neck. Cause then we're totally dependent on the grace of God. It's suffering where our God shines. When every thing's fine we don't really need God. Actually, what terrifies me is if the Christian movement ever became in meshed with power structures. Like I'll tell you what would be terrifying, is a Christian nation. A Christian nation that would use the sword in the name of Jesus. That would be anti-christ in it's origin, because what Jesus said was to put away your sword. What terrifies me is that you could have a Christian nation that forced and compelled people, this movement doesn't work because if we were to force and compel people then we would be just like you (Roman Empire). The only way our movement works is with desire, it only works with love, it only works cause you glimpse something you want more than anything. If it ever became compulsory, if it ever became like be a Christian or else. If being a Christian ever became synonymous with being part of the empire or the nation, that would be the worst thing ever. If there were a group of Christians who thought they were right, who tried to vote and use their influence to simply dominate over everybody else that wouldn't be what Jesus had in mind. You have got to understand that this movement thrives when it is on the underside of power. This movement, we thrive when we are weak. Because then God can be strong.........."

Rob Bell- What Has Happened To Me, Mars Hill 2-9-2008

Rob Bell is talking from the perspective of Paul in this sermon. I thought that it was an interesting way of doing it. He doesn't tell you that is what he is doing, but just listening you just get it. This sermon just stuck with me, mainly because it was different but also because of the last five minutes or so. The whole thing is worth a listen to. I just transcribed a portion of the last five minutes. It is the part that really stuck out to me in my listening.

Monday The Third.................

Well you all know what time it is. TOOL TIME! Not really it is Monday weigh-in time. This week I wasn't really expecting it to be a good week. It was however. I lost 3 more lbs. which puts me at 212.

Ummmmm.............. Part 2..........

If you haven't noticed the look has changed. Mostly because I get bored having it the same way for long periods of time.

Well That Was........ Something.......... Disappointing But Something............

Well there goes the season. Once again neither of the SCF teams from last year make it out of the first round. I don't know who to root for now that Ducks are out. Maybe Philly or Montreal. Definitely not Detroit or Dallas or San Jose or really anyone in the west. Except maybe Colorado.

This leads to some questions:
  • Will Scott Niedermayer return for one more year?
  • Will Teemu retire?
  • Will they add some scorers? Cause if you haven't noticed they need some. The leading goal getter this year had 29. Granted he was hurt late in the season.
  • Do they lock up Hiller for a couple years? I hope so.
  • Was letting Penner go worth it? How about the Macdonald for Dougie Weight trade?
  • Will Parros come next season with a mullet?
  • That last one was to relieve the tension.
Well here is to next season.
