It has been a while brethren

Indeed it has been. I hadn’t abandoned this place, my world just got so hectic that it had to go on the backburner for a while. A long while. I am back though and I am itching to make up for lost time.

There is a lot to talk about. First of all, I hope you guys will forgive my absence. It wasn’t planned out to be that way but everything happens for a reason or so they say.

I am yet to fully get over UCLA’s loss in the final 4 (again!!) to Memphis. Congratulations are in order to Rawdawg whose boys made it to the championship game only to lose to Kansas. Still a great season for them regardless. I am looking forward to next season and hoping that Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook and Darren Collison are staying. That would definitely put us over the top with the great recruiting class we have coming in.

I miss football. I know I broke up with her but I miss her already. Yes I know I am a Rams and UCLA fan and football hasn’t been our strong suit for a few years now but a man can hope right?

I am bored with the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton race. Somebody win already so we can get to the part where they actually face John McCain. Here in California we are dealing with intended budget cuts especially in education. We have been fighting against that and hoping Arnold doesn’t go through with it. But thats a subject for another day.
