Ok...maybe "stands the test of time" is a little exageratory, but you get the point that I'm making. Oh, you don't? Well, let me try to explain it in a little better detail for you.

The date of this blog entry is August 30th, 5 months since the release of the latest installment of the MLB The Show series. (eh, give or take a day or so). Anyways, in that time I've been playing this game nearly everyday and playing multiple games on any given day that I can, which is mostly weekends. ... Read More

Freedom Isn't Free
by Cadet Major Kelly Strong USAF JROTC

I watched the flag pass by one day
It fluttered in the breeze
A young soldier saluted it, and then
He stood at ease

I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd

I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years
How many died on foreign soil?

The season has come to an end for Louisville, as they were absolutely embarrassed on national television in Piscataway, NJ as Rutgers pounded us into a 63-14 defeat. Last year, we were ending the season with momentum and with motivation for next year after beating Rutgers.

Louisville finished the season 5-7, after sitting at 5-2. The Cards finished with their first losing season since 1997. The Cards also missed out on a bowl game for the second straight season after going to a bowl ... Read More

Yesterday I started remodeling one of the bathrooms in my home. I am redoing the shower area and putting in a new sink. Nothing major right? Well....10+ hours in and a couple of hundred curse words later, I'm still plugging along. Nothing seems to be going right. The sink that I am replacing the old one with won't fit correctly. I measured it a couple of dozen times to be sure but for some reason it doesn't want to fit. On top of that, the tracking that my shower door is on, broke so now I have ... Read More

Fellow OS'ers, wish me luck. I am preparing the Thanksgiving dinner today for my family for the first time ever. My Mom and Grandma have offered to help with the turkey and such, but I am confident that I can fix it myself. Obviously other members are bringing side dishes and deserts, but I am preparing the meat and potatoes.

Man, I hope I don't have a lot of hungry people leaving my house this evening.

Happy Thanksgiving fellow OS'ers, may today be a day ... Read More

Let me first start off by saying that Madden on the next gen has been underwhelming at best. Yes, Madden '09 was a step in the right direction, but yet, it still leaves something, or maybe a lot of things, to be desired. Still one too many bumps in the road for it to offer long term enjoyment for a majority of its players and even for some of its most diehard fans, myself included.

And let me also say that we all know that Madden is under new management for 2010. Ian and Phil have ... Read More

Crazy as it may seem, there is snow in the forecast for the Louisville area this weekend. Not 2 weeks ago, hell not 10 days ago, it was almost 70 degrees and now this weekend its going to snow. Nothing significant, no accumluation, but man, I'm not ready for snow. I haven't had turkey yet.

Remember when it was just a game? Remember how back in the days of the NES, Super NES, Sega Genesis, and maybe even the first Playstation and Dreamcast, when you played games to "escape reality"? Remember playing games because they were, well games?

I grew up with the Atari, NES, and Genesis. My adolescent years were spent on Space Invaders, Mario, and Sonic. Man those were the days. Losing countless of summer hours involved in those games. I can remember my parents always yelling ... Read More

Tomorrow is one of the most important days in the calendar year for Americans. Tomorrow is the day that we celebrate the lives and sacrifices of those who got our country where it is today. Tomorrow is the day that we celebrate our Veterans.

Veterans day has always held a special meaning to my family. My Father, Grandfather, and Uncle are all vets. My Father served in the Coast Guard, my Grandfather served in the Navy, and my Uncle was a marine. Growing up I was always taught to ... Read More
