Football is here!

I have been waiting, wanting, needing, football here in San Antonio. I am a huge fan. When I heard that my university was going to start a team I knew I had to be all over it. Rushed out and got my season tickets, t-shirts, and yes even a foam finger…

Today was the inagural kick-off game for the UTSA Roadrunners. Playing to a record breaking crowd of over 46,000 people most by any NCAA startup. We went out there gave it our all and crushed the opponent!

A great time was had by all and a great start to something new and special!

Never stop, never quit, get it done.

Well, today makes it official…I finished up my work at St. Philips College and received an associates degrees in Economics and Business Administration, only to be accepted at the University of Texas at San Antonio to get my bachelors! I’m once again a Roadrunner! When I graduated high school I got my college start there and however how short that time was and long story that was, Im extremely excited to be back. It feels surreal really, a bit of dejavu mixed in with the unknown. I’m not far off from my goal, and going to make this the best thing ever.

Also, next year my school is going to start to participate in one of my favorite past-times, FOOTBALL! The road runners kick off in 2011! I can’t wait to be there (in my season ticket seats) cheering them on for the kick-off to there great program which is headed by a former national championship coach! So excited!

Ravens in the AFC championship game!

As a devout Ravens fan, I thought I would share with you my thought’s on today’s playoff games.

Firstly, the Eagles and the Cardinals. The Eagles should clearly win this game, they are tough mentally and physically and have built up enough steam from midseason to beat any team, any day in this league. Being counted out and looked down upon they rose to the occasion and played like a real championship team. A very nice in your face to those who gave up and called for a witching. The Cardinals they are a good team, a team that deserves to be where they are but as far as seasons go they don’t stack up against the best.

Now, I got everything I asked for thus far and more in regards to the Ravens. They have had a great season and have exploded in the playoffs from 6th seed to team to beat. Being a real football fan in my mind I picked the teams to advance that were the most competitive team in the match-ups, not necessarily the teams that give the Ravens the easiest path to the Superbowl. So I got what I wanted a tough as nails, gritty, unearthing matchup at the unforgiving heinz field between the Ravens and the Steelers.

Even though the Steelers beat the Ravens in both meetings during the regular season (One by last second field goal and other by erroneous and questionable review call of a late Steelers touchdown) the Ravens have the defense and a good solid quarterback to ensure a victory.

So there is my quick and very perceptive analysis. Not much else to say really, but GO RAVENS!

P.S. I am still wallowing in the loss that was the Colts season, they had a heck of a run but couldn’t hang on against the Chargers in the end. As much as I want to see the Steelers lose I enjoyed watching them dismantle the Chargers last week in the divisional. But true champions know that you can’t win it all the time, do your best and you’ll be back on top in no time.
