Jeremy's Power Rankings

This was a wild week in college football, but its been an even wilder season in the NFL. I don't think anyone will really stand out this year like last year's Pats. I would find it amazing if anyone has more then 12 wins. Anyways, here's are the teams I think are the best five in the NFL.

1. NY Giants - Bye week and they are the defending world champions...can't move em.

2. Tennessee Titans - They have a very similar team to the Pittsburg team that won it all a few years back. Great defense. A guy who pounds the middle and a guy who's fast running the ball. And a QB who manages the game.

3. Buffalo Bills - Honestly they haven't beaten anyone credible. We'll see what happens throughout the rest of the year.

4. Washington Redskins - Intriguing team...

5. Dallas Cowboys - I still think they are better then they showed. But their mistakes are starting to catch up to them. And lets hope TO doesn't ruin another franchise.

Jeremy went to jail

Today I participated in MDA's Lock Up to benefit Jerry's Kids. It was a fun experience. An off duty police officer picked me up in a squad car. Then they booked me and took this picture. I tried to look tough so I wouldn't get beat up in jail :-). Then, I made a few more calls to raise more money. I didn't meet my goal...but they still let me eat. It was at Outback Steakhouse...so I got a hearty steak, potatoes, and broccoli. It was delicious. Anyways, that was my fun day today. I better get back to work.

Jeremy's Power Rankings

This has been a crazy season already. My colts have looked awful. The Pats are missing Brady. The Buffalo Bills are on my power rankings! Here are this week's rankings...

1. New York Giants - Close one against an awful Cincinnati team. However, great teams know how to win the close ones...

2. Dallas Cowboys - This team is built for the regular season. They are an offensive jugernaut...but defensively they have some questions. They are also second in penalties...which means they lack discipline. That is not a recipe for a Super Bowl ring.

3. Tennessee Titans - Another strong win this past week. They are leading a very good AFC south.

4. Denver Broncos - Jay Cutler is a stud. Maybe this year they will keep it together for the WHOLE season.

5. Buffalo Bills - Um...I'm not sure why they are 3-0...but they are. I still think the Eagles, Pats, and Packers are better...but they all have a "1" in the loss column. So, we'll keep them here and see how long they can keep it up...

Here are some pictures of Eli for you. I love this one.
Jeremy and I think this one is hilarious. I promise I didn't pose him like that!
He was dressed for the game on Saturday. Too bad we lost.
Jeremy found this hat in his drawer. It's way too big which makes it even cuter.

Eli's Power Rankings

Ok, I know he's too young and usually just fusses while I try to make him watch football...but here's his power rankings for week 2 of the NFL Season. I'm a little behind I know...

1. New York Giants (2-0) - Defending Super Bowl Champions are playing like champions.

2. New England Patriots (2-0) - Tom Brady who? A well put together team continues to win and play well.

3. Green Bay Packers (2-0) - Brett Favre who? Aaron Rodgers is playing like he's a super star in the league already.

4. Dallas Cowboys (2-0) - Who needs defense?

5. Tennessee Titans (2-0) - One of the few games I got to watch last week. If they had a solid QB, they would dominate. Great running game and stout defense.

Funny Video and other stuff

In case you missed Sat Night Live and didn't see the Palin/Clinton skit...here it is

Things are going well at home. Eli is sleeping pretty good through the night. We had a rough night last night...but all in all he's done real well. We'll hopefully get some more pics on here real soon.

The house will hopefully be done Friday. There's basically just little things to do in the house (trim and paint). He still needs to finish the outside siding/paint and the front porch. We had a septic problem last week that I hope will be solved inexpensively.

That's a quick update...we'll get some pics on here and I hope to have my first power rankings of the football season next week. I know many of you have waited all year for that :-)

More of Eli

Eli is doing great! He only woke up twice last night to eat and went to sleep immediately after he was finished, which was a huge deal for him and us! Here are some pics for you guys. Handsome boy

Sleeping peacefully
Cute baby feet

Eli's First Few Days

Here are some pics of the last few days. Sorry for the delay but our house is STILL under construction and we only have internet access at our neighbor's house. Sorry I can't figure out how to turn it.
Bonding time
He loves looking at his daddy. Jeremy has been fantastic with him by the way!
It's the closet thing he has to a Reds outfit for the time being. He's already an avid sports fan and got his first football game in before even leaving the hospital.
