Stumbled across a blurb in the Kansas City Star that mentioned my high school winning the Kansas 6A state championship. Now, the football team when I was in high school managed to win about one game a year, so I knew this had to be a serious typo.

Then, I found this article about the big win in the local paper and I find the phrase "beat Olathe East 24-7 to repeat as state champions."

Wait a second. Did that say "repeat?"


I remember celebrating one year when we tied (TIED!) a homecoming game against McPherson, a school about half the size of ours. Now, we're winning state championships?

Man, do I feel old.

My Job is EVIL!!!

In case you don't know, I work in advertising. However, I do realize that this is a callous and evil way to make a living. Nontheless, it pays the bills.

It also provides for fine moments in life like this story about a man who spread his mother's ashes during an Eagles football game. It seems like such a sweet gesture, and then he says this:

"I know that the last handful of ashes I had are laying on the field, and will never be taken away. She'll always be part of Lincoln Financial Field and of the Eagles."

Mr. Noteboom, Lincoln Financial thanks you for the PR.
