Snubbed Again

Well folks, I really don't know where to begin. I'm trying to put my disappointment into words, but they just aren't coming. What elese could I have done? I spent the entire year gorging myself on candy and ho-ho's thinking that it would be the master stroke that put me over the top. Well, I guess not! This morning I turn on the computer, and there it is staring back at me, "Matt Damon. People's Sexiest Man Alive"

Matt Damon?!!! I mean Matt Damon?! Come on, He's not even sexy! Ok, he might be "fit" and "trim", but sexy? Stop fooling yourselves, People Magazine? First of all everyone knows that sexy guys have stubble because they are too cool and manly to shave regularly. Second, sexy guys have, or have had, long hair. Third, you got to be a bad boy to be sexy. You got to do rebel stuff like ride a motorcycle, have a brooding personality, or read western novels. Finally, Matt Damon is an actor. When was the last time that you saw an actor and thought, "Oooh, He's sexy."? Sexy guys do stuff like carpentry, welding, or architecture. They aint in no wimpy plays.

I think I've made my point, and next year maybe they'll choose someone who's REALLY sexy.

Until then, I guess I'll have to shelve the "from the desk of... People's Sexiest Man Alive", and go back to the "From the desk of ...a stunningly handsome, yet unrecognized, superstud".

Stinky Steve

This one has been a long time coming, but I thought I'd spend a quick second to post a few pics from Steven's adoption hearing.

This is the picture we sent to Alaska to let them know that it was probably time to get the hearings over with.


Amy, Josh, Steven and Judge Walters

Kristie, Amy, Steven, Josh and Scott just after the adoption was made final.


Josh and Steven wait while Amy pays adoption fees, and gets the official papers. How do you know Steven's adopted? Well, if the other boys were there, Ty would have already stolen one of the courthouse cop's handcuffs, and Parker would be in trouble for telling him to do it.


Lamy, Josh and Stinky with their lawyer, and our friend, David J. Warner, esq. David did an awesome job getting everything setup, and trying the case. He is also quite handsome, has a stellar 14' turn-around jumper, and sings like an angel.

Its almost like he's not writhing uncontrollably in an effort to get away from me, and that sorry excuse for a goatee.

We've always felt like stinky was part of the family, and we're happy to finally have some to make it official. We feel so lucky to be a part of his big day.

We love you, Steven
Aunt Kristie and Uncle Scott

Rocktober


I figured I'd wait for Rocktober to end before posting my pictures from the recent playoff run by the Colorado Rockies. Denver as been clad in Purple and White since late september, and it has been a lot of fun. While my heart will forever belong to the green and gold, we've been going to Rockies games since we moved here, and have become fans of them too.


My school about 6 or 7 blocks from Coors Field, so decided to walk down to a rally they had in hopes of winning the tiebreaker game to get into the playoffs. There were A LOT of people there.

This is Coors Field. It is the best place I've ever been to see a game.


They had a band playing and tossing out t-shirts (one of which Kristie now sleeps in), and giving away prizes. Dinger, the Rockies mascot, is in the middle of the picture. Dinger is a adolescent purple dinosaur of questionable gender. Dinger sucks, and needs to go away forever. This is Dinger:

This is my suggestion for his/her replacement:


So, the Rockies got into the playoffs and eventually won the National League Pennant before losing in the World Series. Kristie and I were lucky enough to get tickets to the game 4 of the NL Championship Series, when they swept the D'backs. It was awesome.

Scott and Kristie during the game. The guy next to Kristie brought his own whiskey, and was very drunk. His buddy ended up pouring beer on his head during the game, and after it was over, they got into a fight. Fun Stuff all around.

The celebration when the Rockies won thier way into the series.

I took this video about 10 minutes after the final out. It was as loud a place as I've ever been.

All in all it was a fun ride, and hopefully it'll happen again next year, and the A's or Rockies will win it all.
