I did not see the last minute of my favorite show because Jessica is addicted to TIVO and has TIVOED so many shows that it shut off the Office right at the end to switch to some show she's never seen (Big Shots). So, please, someone talk some sense into this crazy woman I call my wife so she will stop the madness. Actually, I'm going to have the TIVO box reomoved tomorrow and we're moving to basic cable. HA! Eat that TIVO nazi!!!!!

Cincy Trip

Jessica and I are very happy to say we are closing tomorrow on our house! We've been praying so hard for this day for a year now. The closing is at please continue to pray that all goes well. Thanks!

This weekend, I'm taking Jessica back country camping. We'll hike 1.5 miles to our campsite. No bathrooms, no showers, and no campgrounds. Its just us and mother nature. We went yesterday to Bass Pro Shop and bought some supplies. I needed a camping stove, some dried food (MRE's), and some other stuff to help make this a little easier. I got Jess a camel pack. It's a 1.5 liter pack with a small hose so that Jess can drink water while she hikes without pulling out her water bottle. Anyways, I'm pumped and can't wait for this weekend!

That's all for now. Thank you all for your prayers! We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends!

Jeremy's Power Rankings

It's still early in the season and a lot could happen, but here are the 3-0 teams that have shown they deserve to be ranked this week. Of course, there is no change at the top :-)

1. Indianapolis Colts - The defense let their guard down in the second half, but looked very good once again. Still undefeated and the longest winning streak in the NFL.

2. Pats - Their first half may have shown some good teams their weaknesses. They were held to 3 points! But, they won convincingly once again securing their perfect 3-0 start.

3. Dallas Cowboys - Looked very good against a struggling Bears team.

4. Pittsburg Steelers - Some convincing wins over some not so great opponents. I'll be convinced when they play some divisional teams and win. Next week? Arizona...probably will go 4-0 and stay in my top five. I think they are successfull because they have gone back to what they do the ball and tighten the defense.

5. Green Bay Packers - Did not expect to have them in my top five this year. Could they win the NFC this year? Their defense looks pretty good and Favre looks great...but let's see how they respond when teams start daring them to run the ball.

It's that time of year again....

It's my favorite time of year....T.V. premieres!!!!! Jeremy makes fun of me and thinks it's really dumb but I love the start of all the T.V. shows. I have a lot of favorites returning and some new ones that look very intriguing. My list is pretty long so I may have to make some cuts when it gets down to the wire. Since I have DVR I can usually catch up on the weekends. So, here is my list...General Hospital, GH Night Shift, Grey's Anatomy (the old re-peats on Lifetime), Top Chef, Kitchen Nightmares, Survivor, Wife Swap, Heroes, Journeyman, House, Kid Nation, Big Shots, My Name is Earl, The Office, E.R., Scrubs, and Desperate Housewives. Miraculously, none of them conflicted with each other since I can tape two things at once! I have to say that the two I am most excited about is Heroes and The Office. O.K. feel free to call me a loser and say I have no life. However, DVR actually SAVES me time since I can fast forward the commercials. Man, I love DVR, it's the greatest invention since the lightbulb.

My Mazda

My friend Doug just posted a note that linked here. Evidently, my car will only hold five 170 pound people at a time. That sucks since the average wait for an adult male is like 185. Great thinking car makers of the world!

Jeremy's Power Rankings

Well, its a typical season. All of the favorites are sucking it up. My top five was shaken pretty hard this week. The Chargers look like they can't score a touchdown to save their lives. The Bengals look like they can't stop a touchdown to save their lives. And the Seahawks just looked plain jane. So, this week I'm doing my power surprises. Indy and the Pats look untouchable, and here are five surprises for the year. By the way, check out espn's rankings this week...they still have the Ravens, Bears, and Chargers in their top 10. On to the surprise 2-0's so far...remember there is a lot of football yet to be played...

1. San Fran 49ers - I was a big fan of the niners until they did Jerry Rice wrong. Then I jumped on the Manning me what you will :-). Anyways, their defense looks good, Gore looks great, and Alex Smith is limiting his mistakes. Basically, they look like a mini-steelers team...

2. Houston Texans - I really didn't think Matt Schaub would make that much of a difference, but he really has done great. I like how they have rebuilt their team...this is the best start they have ever had!

3. Detroit Lions - Jon Kitna is the bomb! Great job Detroit of going from the laughing stock of the NFL to being one predicted this...oh wait! John Kitna did.

4. Pittsburg Steelers - They did nothing to improve their team and have a new coach...this is a big surprise that they are 2-0 and winning in convincing fashion.

5. Green Bay Packers - Their defense has looked great and Brett Favre looks like he lost 5 years. If they only had a good running game...but they are in the they'll probably make the playoffs.

Here's a quick rundown of my power five...1. Indy 2. Pats 3. Dallas 4. Steelers 5. Denver. Probably will change again next week...we'll see...

The Bourne Ultimatum

Jeremy and I saw The Bourne Ultimatum today and it was really good! I would suggesst that if you have time you should watch the first two just as a refresher. However, Jeremy and I didn't do that and it was still good. It moves really fast and the action was great. Jeremy will be embarrassed that I am even posting this but...last week we saw The Nanny Diaries b/c I read the book and wanted to see it. Well, the book is better in case you were wondering. It's still cute and worth watching when it comes to DVD. I'm in the middle of reading all of the Harry Potter books and now I want to go back and watch all the movies again. So, that is now on list of things to do. Anyways, that's what has been happening in our movie world.

Jeremy's Power Rankings

Boy, I am pumped about this year's NFL season! A few changes in this week's rankings. Baltimore fell off the list. Their defense looked tough at first with some big hits, but as the game went on those big hits took a toll on them. Their offense looked old and unimpressive. Cincy however has gone back to their defense that works...cause turnovers and limit big plays. If they can keep that up this year, they'll be set for the playoffs. Dallas also fell off the list, because I felt someone else was deserving of the 5th slot. So, onto the rankings.

1. Indianapolis Colts - Wow, their defense looked great and their offense was just as good as they beat up on a very good Saints team.

2. NE Patriots - Just as expected they are really good. It'll be a good test this week against San Diego. On a related note, what the crap NE? You have a good enough team already...YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHEAT!

3. San Diego Chargers - Creative offense and a great defense. LT does not have to run 200 yards to be effective. Amazing!

4. Cincinnati Bengals - Their offense was relentless and their defense stepped up big. Don't let me down this week against a very poor Browns team.

5. Seattle Seahawks - Quietly will win their division and probably be in the Super Bowl. They looked very good Sunday.

Pre-Season Power Rankings

Well, Jeremy's weekly power rankings are back. YEAH! This week is basically my prediction of who will do good this year...since we really haven't seen anyone play. Check back here Tuesday for Week 1's rankings!

1. Indianapolis Colts - Anybody surprised?  

2. NE Patriots - Um revamped defense, quality receivers, and a good looking running game. Its going to take injuries to keep the Pats from a 13-14 win season!

3. Baltimore Ravens - Willis McGahee could have been the most under-rated pick-up of the offseason. I can see them winning 13 games again this year.

4. San Diego Chargers - Phillip Rivers is one year older, LT is still in his prime, and Shawn Merriman stopped taking steroids...they should be back in the playoffs this year.

5. Dallas Cowboys - Hopefully I won't stay long on this bandwagon, but Tony Romo seems to have gotten back on the horse, TO is behaving, and the defense looks pretty good. This is a long shot but I'll put them here for now. Let me tell you why...

1. The Bears no longer have a running game. I don't like Benson...and expect him to not be able to handle full time. Grossman sucks. So, no offense to a great defense = a disappointing season.

2. The Saints were a great feel good story last year, but I don't trust their defense enough to put them in my top five...maybe 6 or 7.

3. The Eagles have a QB who is coming back from injury. They are my 6 or 7 pick also.

4. For those Bengals fans out there that think they deserve a top five spot answer me this: What did they do different in the offseason to improve their defense? The answer...nothing. 

Feel free to comment your thoughts on this season or your pre-season picks!
