It is starting to get ridiculous the way are team dominates the league we are in. I didn't play in our championship game, but I went and watched and honestly there were at least three times that I thought we were done. The legacy was over, no more dynasty, the drive for five, one for the thumb was finito! And then the magic happened, yet again. We let a guy break free and go for a long gain, one of our guys tackled him at the 1 yard mark, something that many of us thought was a bad idea at the time, we thought that they would eventually score anyway but that they would take enough time off of the clock that we would not be able to come back. Oh us of little faith, we held them from scoring and taking an insurmountable 10 point lead, but no we held them, and only down by three all we had to do was score and stop them from scoring with like 4 minutes left. So we went down the field and on a couple of occasions we almost turn the ball over on downs yet we did not. We score with about 45 seconds to go to take our first lead of the game, we were up 4. Well then they kind of dinked and dunked their way down the field and got to within the ten yard line, with 5 seconds left. So on their last play (it felt like it lasted 10 minutes) they threw the ball back and forth across the field waiting for an opening, and then they over threw their guy and we were yet again victorious!

So, I am in a flag football league that our team has dominated for the last 4 years. We are pretty good although we can be irritating. We have a couple guys on the team that whine quite a bit and it upsets some teams that we are playing. Well this came back to haunt the heck out of me this week. The team we were playing was a team full of rather large people of polynesian descent. Well according to the laws of physics when a 6'3" 325lb freight train hits a 5'10" 210lb schlub bad things happen. So he drilled me, illegally slamming me to the ground in the process. Needless to say I got a concussion and an other injury that I don't really want to go into, lets just say no guys would want it. So really why? Why does flag football have to be so silly? These are guys that play for and with BYU and they get all butt hurt by getting slaughtered by a bunch of washed up guys by 30 points. Now my team is in the finals and I don't get to play because I got hit by a Dihatsu, Monday night. It is the joy I live with.

I am sure that this is going to be the most blogged about thing in history today but here it goes anyway. I am excited about the new election of president Obama, I feel like we progressed as a nation, and it has nothing to do with wether I was a long time supporter or not it just feels like as a nation we can be proud of our decision, and that is good right?
The other thing is how sad is the California Prop. 8 fiasco? I don't like that it became a civil war of sorts, it bothers me that in a discussion about peoples love for each other so much hatred emerged. There were anti-religion adds that were disgusting, there were religions stepping in to the the political arena. The second part is something that I am not really sure how I feel about, I don't know if that is something that should have been done or if it has no business in the political ring. Anyway it is sad that so much hatred flows from the same sex marriage debate.
