NBA All-Star Weekend 2007

Well this past weekend was one of the biggest weekends, if not the biggest weekend of the NBA season and is always a big hit in every NBA season. This weekend is big for all ages and people. I think it is especially huge for people in the high school age group because the people that are participating in the All-Star weekend are the people that the youth look up to and such.

Having watched countless All-Star weekends I found this one to be not one of the best. This All-Star weekend was packed with endless amounts of showmanship and fun times, but at the end of the weekend it just seemed like it was missing something. I think the thing that it was missing were the guys that I grew up watching. Guys like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen (even though he did participate in one event), David Robinson, Hakeem Olajuwon, and many others. I guess I finally realized that the NBA has moved into a different time that is appealing to the youth of today.

There were your normal events, the rookie challenge, the slam dunk competition, the 3-point competition, and a couple newer ones, the skills competition, and the Haier shooting stars competition. The players involved put on a great show and there were a couple new winners in the events this year. All I know was that it was a great weekend to watch basketball even though there have been better weekends in previous years. This one was still pretty good. For more information on what happened that weekend check out

Hockey Hall of Fame

So yesterday me and my brother went to the Hockey Hall of Fame because we had an afternoon to kill. We finally got inside it after spending a while driving around trying to find the perfect parking place, but there wasn't one, so we settled. Anyways so we got in there kind of remembering what it was like as little kids and we both quickly realized that there wasn't much to it. It was a lot smaller than we thought and it turned out not being exactly what we thought. The upside to it all this was as you can see I got my picture taken with Lord Stanley's Cup. That's right. For all of you who couldn't find it as a kid and such, Pastor Jeff Hackett! might be jealous. I also took a few pictures of the trophies like the Vezna (Top Goalie) and the Art Ross (MVP of the Finals). Anyways it was a great afternoon hanging out with my brother and such. It was a good day. That's it for now!

Happy Valentine's Day or St. Valentine's Day for Megan

Well here we are again...another Valentine's Day has come...and I LOVE IT!!! Mostly because I'm with the bestest best person in the whole wide world!!! I think that's about all I'm going to say about this. It's just an awesome day. I sent Megan flowers all the way across the world, you heard me!! I found this place on-line called "Fleurop", and it's a flower place that delivers all over the world. It was a little bit over the price range that I wanted to spend, but it's ok, I know it's so worth the money. So if you want to know what Megan thinks about the flowers, check out her blog at She is truly amazing and here are the flowers that i sent her. I think they are pretty and Megan does too. The funny thing about this all is the fact that I actually didn't know what I was sending her, but IT WORKED OUT PERFECTLY!!! I'm so happy with me and her...this is great. Anyways, talk to you all soon!

Half way there...

Well as many of you know it has been 4 and a half months since my darling Megan left the blessed country of Canada to go teach English in Japan. And this means that she is COMING HOME SOON! Well not that soon, but soon enough! She will, as it is looking, be home in approx. 4 and half months which means that we have hit the top of the hill in this long-distance time and we are on our way down the hill. This is so huge for me and her because we both feel a little relieved I guess. I don't know that right word to put there. Anyways I just thought I'd post about this because I can't wait until she and I see each other again. It will be a momentous occasion and it is COMING SOON! Anyways, that's it. Just wanted everyone to know that my beautiful Megan will be coming home soon! YES!!!

Have a good one everyone!

Switchfoot -- Oh! Gravity

So I decided that I would talk about probably my favourite band in the past 5 years. This band as you can probably tell by the album cover is Switchfoot. There are many reasons why these guys have been able to be a major influence in not only my life but the lives of many other youth and young adults lives.

When Switchfoot first came into the music scene they weren't to big, but they got pretty big in the Christian industry with the album A New Way To Be Human. When they came out with their next album The Beautiful Letdown, this is where they made it huge. One big reason why people now know who Switchfoot is, is because they were the headline band in the movie, A Walk To Remember. After this movie Switchfoot just became just a big name in a the music industry.

The reason why I talk about Switchfoot is not because they are big, but because they are having such a huge influence on the world and not ashamed to tell anyone where they came from and what they are all about.

The new CD and pretty much all of their CD's are a good pick up. This new one is especially good because they took time this go around to make a really decent album. It is truly a great album. At first it may not be the best album, but it has to grow on you. You have to listen to it a few times before it becomes really good.

Switchfoot is really doing something good for this youth culture in today's day and age. They have great lyrics and provide an alternative, but same sounding music to a lot of the mainstream music around today. Truly great guys and great music.
