The Christmas weekend is over and the LL will settle back in to the comfies of just trying to keep the Bman updated on her world.  It really was a blast to see the grandkids get all their gifts last evening.  Honestly, it's almost shameful how much they received.  Trent just kept yelling "this is just what I wanted" on every gift.  Siena who doesn't get too excited about anything was really excited about the COMPLETE collection of everything Barbie ever made, and Daniel just didn't know what to think of it, being nearly 11 moths old, but he did like this piano thing that lights up and plays stuff.  Lynda said she paid too much for it, but....

There were no arguments or anything.  That was kinda' boring, we usually get a good fight at these things. It's kind of weird being over already, but at least we had everyone there and it was a blast.

The weekend would have been great except the Bengals lost a heartbreaker.  They are just not ready for prime time.  They still have a chance for the playoffs, but it is slim.  They have kept me interested until December at least.  There aren't too many years when they do that.  I did manage to leave it behind and enjoy the evening with the family.

The X/UC ending of their game was a complete embarrassment.  Now I played sports emotionally and coached that way also, but this was way over the top.  I guess the punishments for the playeres on each team was fair, but I wouldn't have minded if they'd sat some of them a few games longer.  UC will probably beat Arkansas-Pine Bluff without their best player.

I don't know what to think about this Tebow thing.  He doesn't pass the eye test for a quarterback, but he  leads his team to wins.  Bottom line that is why they play the game (for the wins).  I just don't buy divine intervention.  Every team has deeply religious players on their team, God doesn't play faviorites.  The guy just has "it".  "It" is hard to desribe, but you know it when you see "it".

The Bman is headed to South Alabama for a few days, weather predictions in the upper 60's. low '70's.  I'll catch back up with you over the weekend.
