No, I am not dead. I miss my blog and love doing it; however, I just made a huge move from Chicago to San Francisco and I am trying to make time to be good at my job. I need to focus on myself and adjusting. In January, I will be back and will start vlogging.
They may be 3-2 and have won the last two games; however, I am not convinced this is not the team that made it to 2013 Super Bowl. Colin Kaepernick completed only 6 of 15 passes this past Sunday. Yards have been down since week 1 and lets face it too many of our key players are out of commission including Michael Crabtree and many are facing injuries that may not have ended the season, but are definitely providing strains on their performance.
Now Colin's foot is becoming an issue once again. He was listed as the injury list and his chances to play are "probable". This could explain his under performing season or it could just mean nothing at all. I want to see a Kaepernicking moment Dangit! He seems out of it on the field. First off, he is growing facial hair and starting to look like a sexy caveman and focusing on negative comments on Twitter. Neither behavior seems healthy or normal for the young QB. I think there may be something going on with him. I mean we know the team's health is waning; however, that is not the only problem here. I want my QB to know we are rooting for him, the entire 49ers team and that the we need a confident QB on that field. We need 2012 Kaepernick. I have decided to write a letter to Colin showing him that there are fans that care. Hush, I hear you judging my letter from your computer.
Life comes at you hard and when it does .....drink Tequilla or grab a bible (your choice), play Drake's new album, and find that missing chicken at McDonalds. All jokes aside, this is your moment to shine. Your name is one of the most recognized in football and it is not because you prayed in the end zone or threw more interceptions than anyone can imagine, but because you are exceptional. You love this game more than anyone can imagine and you worked so hard for this moment. The spotlight is on you and its not there because it wants to be, but because your performance and internal light forced it to be. Don't play like you are afraid or bothered. Only hear the good things, just be aware of the bad. You are living your dream. Stop playing like you can wake up and start over. This is the life you wanted, don't let it slip away. Play that scene from Whats Love God to Do With It and get on that field and play your heart out.
Adrian Peterson, the best NFL player, learned some disturbing news today. His 2 year old son died as a result of being beaten by his mom's boyfriend. I am sure you have heard the story and honestly I don't know what to feel worse about.
Adrian Peterson losing a child
Adrian losing a child to violence afflicted by a trusted third party
The fact that his ex-lover, mother of his child allowed someone to harm her child
I know I should probably not put "allowed" but the question is how long has she known this man? Why was he alone with the child? Why would you let a man that has a known criminal history come around your child? You may be saying "she didn't know". FIND OUT. This is your child. You don't get the privilege of dating carelessly. You need to ask questions and figure out who you are putting over your child. A man is not that important. Some things can be avoided, I am not saying this situation could have because I am not being provided all of the details, but most cases can.
Adrian Peterson during happier times at The Espys
I hope people learn from this and make a greater effort to find out who is around their child. I lived in a single parent home and my mom never had a man over me. Love your child more than a man. Aside from this, I want that family to know I am not judging anyone. I pray the family can grow from this situation and continue their lives. I pray peace for the family. My overall message is that people take more care when it comes to who they allow into their lives.
Questions that may arise:
How will Peterson continue the season?
Before you ask this question please acknowledge you are a heartless person. This is one of the most hurtful situations and if he needs a break he should be granted one.
Who is the mother?
Does it matter? You just want to persecute her. Let her mourn privately (if possible)
I always said fantasy football was created to make the average person feel like they were a GM and that I didn't want to take part in that. I like to spend my time doing things that actually matter; however, people make so much money participating and seem to have so much fun. Who is to say it doesn't matter? I think I may just have to participate. At my job (that sounds good to say) all of the guys there have fantasy teams and spend much time discussing trades. I have decided that next season I will definitely take part.
Sorry, I had to make a post about it, but I think it is something everyone should consider. I will soon post reasons why so maybe you can make the decision for yourself. Football junkies unite!
Just when I thought it was a great morning it quickly became bleak. As I backed out of my park in a parking garage that believes that a park for a Jeep should be built with two concrete beams. I hit my tail light on a recycle bin I did not see! I have been driving for 6 years with no accidents or scratches and I buy a brand new Jeep Patriot with barely 200 miles on it and I hit my light and break a piece off within 7 days of buying it. Are you kidding me?! Im so upset at myself and the city of San Francisco for ok'ing these tiny A$$ parking spots.
While I sat here angry at work trying to act as if I did not just depreciate my brand new SUV, my first car, my first purchase, I realized it was September 11th. While I sit at home and complain about a brand new truck being ruined, thousands are reminded of the terrible events that took place 12 years ago. Almost 3, 000 people died, approximately 6,000 were injured, and thousands more were affected that day. I am reminded that everything is precious and that no one is untouchable. I pray that families involved continue to grow from the devastating events and that America is reminded of this especially during the discussion on the action that should be taken in Syria.
As we all witnessed Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson, and LeSean Mccoy are back in action under Chip Kelly and believe me The Eagles I once loved actually seem to warrant the love I have to give. Last season's performances from the team as a whole were atrocious and I was ready to write The Eagles off, but thank God they are BACK!
RGIII did not receive the warm welcome these three did. Poor "Tin-Man" had a bit of a hard time adjusting to the game and with so many mistakes made from himself and the team they just did not manage a win. I honestly do believe if he played in the preseason and spent less time posing on GQ covers he could have definitely adapted much quicker.
Off topic, is it me or he plays with his hair similar to that of a valley girl, just saying. We always talk about Beiber, lets chat about the RGIII hairshake.
Day 1 and I am already considering
quitting. Just kidding, I love my new
job. I know no job is perfect and the
tasks associated with the position may become a tad bit challenging; however,
the culture is one I care for. I could not help but think the entire day as I stared
out the window at a priceless view of mountainous beauty that I am in the
Golden State. Acknowledging how
privileged and BLESSED I am to have been given this opportunity I now know I
can not become comfortable in my current position. Hard work and added responsibility needs to
be consistently on the agenda.
Aside from my work related epiphany, I
decided to check football news on my break because of course I do nothing else
aside from work while I am currently friendless in San Francisco (well I have
some previous college connections). I
decided to check out people’s views on week 1.
I am honestly motivated to create my own season predictions and report
on the hotties I checked out on the bench.
If you had not noticed I am a bench watcher, cutie spotter (you get the
idea), but not a jersey chaser. I am a
young business professional who can admittedly appreciate a man in uniform
(police officers, “suits”, and fireman included).
try and move on from my random confessions.
There are more important things to talk about such as Russell Wilson and
Colin Kaepernick’s eyebrow bet. Yes, you heard correctly. These oversized men decided they should bet
that the loser QB of the much anticipated Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco
49ers game should shave his eyebrow.
Personally, I think it could bring about friendly competition, but I am
a bit angry this took an entire segment on a local San Francisco news
station. If I hear Colin Kaepernick one
more time…. But hey it is his time to shine and one can not avoid the fact he
is talented, beautiful, and has the body of a Grecian God (too far?). Whatever you choose to believe or wherever you
get your news just know one of the two, preferably Wilson, will
be rocking unsymmetrical facial features.
Hello wonderful World! I actually am about 65% settled in; I just need a T.V. stand and chairs for my table (long story). I decided today that I love my "job" of blogging and that I should update you guys more on my life. I had the best day today because I was given the opportunity to watch my first 49ers game in San Francisco (the word of the day). I am proud to say they won. Hmmm, maybe I'm their good luck charm? I will get into that in a future post.
Tomorrow I start my first day of work at a tech company in sales and research and I am super excited! I just want to start working hard, so I can meet people and get my life going. I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to live in this beautiful state in such a wonderful city! I will add some pictures tomorrow to display the beauty that the city holds.
This week will be amazing! I get to start a new job, meet new people, and my dearest ( I never say dearest in real life, but somehow when I write *shrugs*) friend is coming to visit me for her birthday! This means I am hitting the town of San Francisco! Don't worry I will find all the straight guys. Have a great week and look for updates. I decided to actually vlog today and my camera was being weird. I wonder what happened. ...TROUBLESHOOT
I must now sleep and prepare for the day, but look for updates and my Sunday Night Football review. O yea I go in (Chicago vernacular) on The Panthers and Clay Matthews (Modern day Thor).
This is my last day in the Chicago land area and I am soooooooooooooooooooo excited to be moving to the bay area tomorrow for a job! Its not sports related, but the experience can be applied to something in that field *wink*. I will be in the process of moving and will be limited to phone internet for a few days, so blogging is going to have to wait.
This last week was amazing! I met Matt Forte and he signed my jersey! That is when I knew my life was complete. What better way to end my reign in Chicago? Dramatic enough? I am now an official 49ers fan (official because I'm a resident) and I am so excited. I'm glad he signed my jersey because I'm not sure how well my Chicago Bears jersey would be perceived. Can not wait to buy a #7 9ers jersey and uh go to work.
I need to visit Candlestick Park sooner than later. Love you Chicago (from afar). God is good!
