Today, a buddy of mine stopped in the office…. we were slow and he had some sparklers he just bought in Tennessee.  Next thing ya know, I am out in the field watching my first sparkler bomb go boom! He said we used lame tape (all we had in the office) and it normally is 4 times louder than this! They were also the “mini” sparklers.   I will say it was much louder than the video shows.

Here is a pic

Las Vegas… with pics!

OK, finally after a long week, here are some pics and an update after getting back from taking my cousin Matt to his huge soccer tournaments in Las Vegas.  

Everyone wants to know how I did in vegas…. I WON BIG!  When I say big, I mean I didn’t gamble any money and walked away a winner that kept my money and had a total blast.  We rented a car from priceline for only $13.00 a day!  And a TOTAL bonus when we got to the avis counter, the guy upgraded us to a pontiac solstice!  FUN.  It was great having almost no schedule and acting like a high school kid again!   You can click here to see all the pics I uploaded.

Here are a few must see’s!

Las Vegas!

As I type this, I sit in Sunny LAS VEGAS!!  I am here with Lisa’s cousin Matt Franco (ya, the soccer/football high school star/wonder).  I was fortunate enough to get to bring him out here for his soccer tournament.  We got here LATE friday.   Its early Sunday morning here, but back home most people I know are in Church right now (3 hour time difference).  We fly out late monday night and will get home around 3:00am.   Check back here on Tuesday evening…… I am hoping I will of caught enough rest by then to post some pics!

Bullrun 2009!

Mark you calendars, make a phone reminder, put it in your outlook, tie a piece of string to your finger or whatever you do to remember really important stuff!

Bullrun the TV show is back and will be on YOUR TV on Feb 19th on Speed channel!  What is Bullrun you ask?  Remember the movie “Canonball Run”?  Sort of like that, but turned reality TV.

12 teams and there rides will travel 4,000 miles in 12 days.  This show is good enough that I actually watch it (I watch almost ZERO TV) and even my wife totally digs it.  Our DVR is set for the season.

Click HERE for more info on the REAL Bullrun.  It is in July, and starts in New York, and runs to Austin TX.  Here are few quotes from the real Bullrun:

‘I’m more excited to do Bullrun than when I won the Indy 500’ – Mario Andretti

‘Seriously, the best week of my life’Dennis Rodman

Ok, this just seems like a no brainer that anyone and everyone that has a cell should sign up for.  I just signed Lisa and I both up.  Pretty simple, if a kid gets abducted, and they issue an Amber alert, then they text it to you.

Click here to sign up, it takes about 50 seconds, and they don’t sell your number to anyone.

No brainer if you have kids.  Also, a no brainer if you don’t have kids.  Of course, your regular text $ applies.

Also known as the NAIAS, held in Detroit every January, it the most rockin and latest metals from around the globe.  I am going to keep the wordage short and sweet, and let the pics do the talkin’.  My uncle Mark invited and took me up here, we had a great day together hanging out and drooling at all the shiny stuff.

JEEP! This is the constant that all vehicles should be judged by!

This may have a jeep sticker, but is not a Jeep!  I hope jeep is reading this, because that thing needs to be deleted from the line up.  We need more locking axles, not cars.

Another wonderful example of what should have jeep stickers ripped off of it.

This is not a jeep, this is a Lambo, or also known as, just plain old badness.  This drew ALOT of attention.

Thats my uncle mark in the blue, the other people are a special inside Chrysler/Dodge team that makes videos, commercials, and inside videos for dodge.  They were telling me they were a big part of the commercial of the Dodge Truck Ram Challenge!  They said he will likely be on a youtube promo in a few weeks.. I will post again when I see it.

That's my uncle mark in the blue, the other people are a special inside Chrysler/Dodge team that makes videos, commercials, and inside videos for dodge trucks. They interviewed him with a personally mounted mic for quite awhile!! They were telling me they were a big part of the commercial of the Dodge Truck Ram Challenge! They said he will likely be on a you-tube promo in a few weeks.. I will post again when I see it, they said they would e-mail me a link to post on this blog! Cool!

Ever see that show "what not to wear" on TLC.  Well, this pic describes "What not to drive, or buy, or take off road".  Unless you like boys! LOL

The army recruiters were there, and brought a rock wall to climb.  This is not the actual wall we climbed, but it was this same design.  I jokingly said we should climb it.  Next thing I knew we were in line!  All I can say is, we are very fast climbers.

Well, there you go, that is my review of the NAIAS.  Short and sweet (in words atleast).  Hope you enjoyed.  Love to here you comments, post em up.
