Here are some random thoughts on this Monday morning…

I am pretty excited that the Rays beat the Red Sox last night to go to the World Series. I could not have handled any “dynasty” talk regarding the Red Sox. There has got to be some spiritual principle in the fact that the first year the Rays dropped the “Devil” from their name, they make it all the way to the World Series.

The Tennessee Titans won again yesterday. They are now 6-0.

The Dallas Cowboys lost again yesterday. Living in East Texas, I have got to admit, I watched the results of this game with a smile on my face. They are now 4-3.

I went camping this weekend with a bunch of Jr High students. I learned that I can build a mean fire solely from paying attention and applying the basic principles I learned from watching Man vs Wild. I had fun but the weekend validated that I really like to sleep on beds.

Had a great small group with our 11th graders last night where we talked about conflict management. Heather and Jeff Byrum did an amazing job teaching the material.

This may show my political ignorance, but I was extremely surprised to hear that Colin Powell gave his Presidential endorsement to Barak Obama. I imagine that could be a pretty big deal.

I watched the keynote address from Apple Special Event October 2008 on the new Macs that are about to be released. I was pretty pumped to see the new changes to the Mac. The coolest change is the glass track pad with no mouse button. Yes, it was 50 minutes and yes, I did enjoy watching every minute. I know I just sounded geeky, but it was sweet to watch.
