Jeremy's Power Rankings

We'll count down from our number five this week to our number one!

5. Green Bay Packers - HEART. A recipe for their success this year. That and Favre is finishing this season as one of the toughest and best QB of all time.

4. Dallas Cowboys - Bye week...so they are still good.

3. NE Pats - Um, I'm nervous about Sunday vs. Colts.

2. Indy Colts - 12 wins in a row and still one of the best defenses in the league. BIG test next week.

1. Boston Red Sox - Ok, I admit I cared more about the World Series this weekend then football. That's a first!

Have a great week!

Jeremy's Power Rankings

A great weekend of football and not much changing on my rankings.

1. Indianapolis Colts - FACT: Indy is 2nd in defensive yards per game. FACT: Indy is 4th in defensive points allowed. FACT: Indy is 1st in defensive passing yards per game. FACT: Indy is second in offensive yards per game and 3rd in offensive points per game. FACT: Indy is also undefeated. They lead the pack in defense and offense, and yet NE is the one who is going to go undefeated? Stop your man-crush on Brady ESPN! NE has the hottest Offense right now, but Indy has the best TEAM.

2. NE Patriots - The best offense by far in the game. Looks like he'll probably break some records this year. This week they go against a very tough and steady defense. Let's see how they hold up against Washington. Better yet, let's see how they fair the following week against the defending world champions at home! Can anyone tell I'm a Colts fan? :-)

3. Dallas - Still one of the best offenses in the game and leads the pack in defensive turnovers. Tony Romo looks like he's headed to Hawaii again!

4. Green Bay Packers - I really like this team. Let's see how they respond out of their bye week.

5. NY Giants - Hottest team in the NFC right now.

Nashville is a fun place...

Jeremy and I had a great time in Nashville. We only got to spend one night but we still had a great time. We stayed with Jason and Deanna who are on vacation so we got to experience Esther's first vacay! On Fri. we ate at Bucca Di Beppos which was basically a lot of good Itallian food. On Sat. we visited the Opryland Hotel and then went shopping at Opry Mills Mall. We ate at Rainforest Cafe before we left which was very fun. The entire inside really does look like a rainforest complete w/moving animals! Here are the pics... This is Jeremy and I at Bucca. Yummy Yumy!
This is at the Opryland Hotel. All of this is actually inside even though it looks like it's outside. They have a boat that rides down the canal. It's very cool!
Esther wasn't too sure what to think of the elephant at Rainforest Cafe.
This is a snake tucked in the wall of the restaurant. There were lots of butterflies and different things like this everywhere you look.
This is the sign at the entrance. If you ever get a chance to visit on of these you should go!

Foothills Fall Festival

We went to Foothills Fall Festival this weekend. It was very fun! We all know that Jeremy hates concerts so for three straight days of them he did o.k. The line up included REO Speedwagon, Bucky Covington, Jamie O'Neal, Trent Tomlinson, Big and Rich, Little Texas, Kellie Pickler, and Sara Evans. Kellie Pickler and Sara Evans were my favorites. I'm not normally a Kelly fan but she was really cute and genuine. Don't listen to what Jeremy said about her. A lot of the concert pics didn't turn out so here are a few that did. This Esther rockin out to REO Speedwagon at her very first concert!
At what age is pleather pants inappropriate on musicians?
We played Spades during Bucky Covington, nuff said. This is Tim getting into the moment during Trent Tomlinson - who was my least favorite. I think he thinks that the K-Fed image is coolThis is Big and Rich on the jumbo-tron. They were good - somewhat inappropriate at times, I think that Big was high. But it was still entertaining.

My Friend Vince...

O.K. Folks, Here is the much requested story of how me and Vince Vaughn are practically B.F.F. Last week I had dinner w/some friends from work at Downtown Grill and Brewery in K-Town. We were sitting at the outside patio. When I got there I heard that I had just missed Vince Vaughn by 10 min. He had eaten there and was in town for a premiere of The Wild West Comedy Tour at a brand new movie theater down the street. So I was a little bummed that I missed him but excited about eating at the same place he did. So as we were sitting there a woman came by w/a press badge and yellow wrist bands. She asked our table if we wanted to go to the movie premiere! So we said said sure. We walked into the theater and the guy at the front said that Vince had come through the back and was going to be speaking. Now call us all crazy but none of the girls I was with wanted to stay for the movie! So we walked into the theater and were talking to the staff about if he was speaking before or after the movie. If it was before we were going to stay for that and then leave. As all of this was being decided I heard an unmistakable voice whiz by and dun-dun-dun-dun it was Vince Vaughn!! So I stood there stunned and then he turned back around and walked through our circle. His jacket brushed my arm and he said (here it is verbatim Justin) "Excuse us, Excuse us" and we watched him take his seat. So that was enough to satisfy us and we left. Stupid, I know. He wasn't speaking until after the movie anway. He looked very professional, he was in a suit and looked more put together than he does in the movies. He is very, very tall and was very polite. So, there you have it - what famous person did I run into??? IDK my BFF Vince.

Family Camp!

O.K. I know this post is a little late, but better late than never. Family Camp was so much fun and I am so glad I got the opportunity to go. I feel so blessed to have life long friends in Indiana! Here is Alan. Oh my gosh he is so cute!

Amberlee and Justin - I'm not really sure what's happening in this picture. I just thought it was funny.
Me and Bethany. She makes me so happy!
What time is it??? Jailbreak time of course!

Jeremy's Power Rankings...but not really...

Ok, the picture of Kelly Pickler has nothing to do with my rankings this week. The rankings are the same and I'm too lazy to retype them. However, I thought I would take a moment to give my impressions on a fun weekend before Jessica gets a chance to :-)

We went to the Foothills Fall Festival this weekend. Something like 15,000 people cramped in the small town of Maryville, TN. There were some good bands like, REO Speedwagon (Yes, the same band that started in the 70's). They were really good and put on a good show even though the lead singer is like 85. HA! The next couple days we saw a bunch more bands. I'll highlight a few...Bucky Covington was better then I thought he would be...not nearly as annoying and bad as his days on American Idol...very southern rockish. Jamie O'Neal did a good job. Trent Tomlinson is gay...very very gay. Cowboy Troy was embarrassing. Big and Rich were innappropriate in a many different ways, but they put on a great high energy concert. Little Texas was great. Kelly Pickler was incredibly annoying, but she sings very well. When addressing the crowd she sounded like a high school girl in the mall on her cell phone...but she was talking to us...I almost shot myself in the face. Sara Evans closed out the event with some great songs.

Funny story...I was getting some food for Jess and I while Little Texas was performing Sunday and I had to eat my Gyro real fast so that I could free up my extra hand to pay for some popcorn and while shoving this in my face, and grease and ranch dressing falling down my arm, Kelly Pickler walked by and said hello to her fans that were standing next to me. I just bowed my head and pretended not to exist...so embarrassing. Not an impression I want to leave with someone famous. Maybe someday here in the next week or so Jessica will tell you all about her experience running into Vince Vaughn...

Have a great week and hopefully we'll get some photos on here soon.

Jeremy's Power Rankings

Here's this week's power rankings...

1. Indianapolis Colts - Looked great against a very good team and missing 5 starters.

2. NE Patriots - Looked good against a mediocre team and they got their cheater back (Rodney Harrison). What makes me hate this team so much. Ironically, they are playing a team next week that I hated while growing up.

3. Dallas Cowboys - Good news...they are still perfect. Bad news...they are playing the Patriots next week. A big opportunity to show that they are legit.

4. Pittsburg Steelers - I don't understand this team. They go up against Cleveland and get slaughtered...then play a very good Seattle team and slaughter them. I just can't figure them out.

5. Green Bay - Just missed staying perfect. Still the second best team in the NFC right now.

WARNING: This post contains adult content!

Let me set the scene for you. This morning at approximately 9am, I (Jeremy) was in Walmart shopping for some allergy meds. An older man (probably in his 60's) walks up to me like he's going to say something...

Old Creepy Man: The word of the day is spread.

Jeremy: What?

Old Creepy Man: The word of the day is spread.

Jeremy: Um...Ok.

Old Creepy Man: So, it's time for you to spread your legs...HAHAHAHAHA! (Creepy laugh)

(Jeremy forces an awkward chuckle and then exits quickly feeling very dirty.)

Thought I would share my sexual harrassment experience with you. Hope you enjoyed. Now I'm going to go take a shower and cry.

Jessica and I went hiking and camping this weekend. Here are a few pictures from our adventure.

We had to raise our packs up high to keep them from the bears.

This is the beginning of the hike. Beautiful!

This is the pack I carried.

Jessica enjoyed her MRE...noodles and chicken.


So, Jessica didn't sleep at all that night. It's a small tent and my snoring is awful!

Jeremy's Power Rankings

Here is this week's power rankings...

1. Indianapolis Colts - I was tempted to move them down this week because of how impressive NE has been, but I'll explain next. I was very impressed at how the defense adjusted Sunday. They gave up over 100 yards rushing in the first quarter alone. But, they didn't give up and adjusted their game plan and stopped Denver through the rest of the game. Impressive.

2. NE Patriots - Another impressive win last night. They have a very dominant team, but they haven't played anyone yet. But, Jeremy, they played Chicago and San Diego. Yes they did and both teams are really struggling this year with only one win a piece. In fact, all of NE's opponents are 1-3. I would suggest that both Chicago and San Diego were over-rated going into the season and until they beat a hot Dallas team in two weeks or Indy loses, they aren't moving anywhere.

3. Dallas Cowboys - Tony Romo has been very impressive this year and I'm glad he's on my fantasy team. In fact, he and Brady have carried my team so far! Let's see how they do when they face NE in two weeks.

4. Green Bay Packers- The Surprise team this year. I don't know how far they will go without a running game, but I'm impressed so far.

5. Seattle Seahawks - Like I said earlier this season, they will quietly win their division and make it to the playoffs in a very weak NFC.

I love this CD

I just got this new CD and I LOVE it! The guy's name is Amos Lee and he is fantastic - he has a very soulful bluesish kinda sound. He has a couple of CDs out but I think the best is his first self-titled debut CD. If you like that kind of stuff you should definately check it out!
