Ratatoille and NCAA Football 2008

I am here at my apartment counting down the minutes before I go to Wal-Mart to pick up the new NCAA Football game from EA Sports. This game is double special for me because not only do I love the college football video games but a Boise State Bronco is on the cover. Granted it is Jared Zabransky but he still was a bronco. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I am excited. The only downfall is that Wal-Mart is going to have only 25 copies of the Xbox version. They are going to have more of the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 versions. So I am going at 11:00 and hopefully there is not a line. I am going to take our iPod and the book I am reading to pass the hour. By the way, I am reading "Hate Mail from Cheerleaders" by Rick Reilley. This is the only book that has made me laugh, feel proud, almost cry, and feel good about sports. I recommend it not only to sports lovers but to everyone else. I am also ready Bill Simmon's book "Now I Can Die in Peace." It is pretty good as well.

This past weekend Sharen and I got invited by my friends to go to their house to play the Nintendo Wii. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Previously I had been contemplating on buying an Xbox 360 to keep up with the Jones'. Sharen was not happy with it but she almost was dropping the YES to it. But after this past weekend everything has changed. Playing the Wii was like an awakening. It is so fun and so interactive. Sharen loved it as did I. It gives you a work out and it is a lot cheaper than the Xbox 360. I recommend playing it and just seeing for yourself how great it is. Sharen and I did boxing and we tied. Then our tennis match was way fun. We had a long fight for one point and it was just a great time and it seems that it would be a thing that I could do with my family because it just makes more sense to do. We are going to try to get one. Hopefully this week!

We went and watched Ratatoille this weekend. And it was really good. The story was good and original and the graphics were just insane. I don't get how they do these great cartoons with such great graphics. Superb movie. I can't wait to watch the new Harry Potter. Which reminds me, I haven't read the 6th Harry Potter book. And I will wait a while until all of the hoopla of the 7th one goes down to read it.

This past weekend I realized how much fun I have with my wife. She is great. Usually she doesn't like to play video games but when she saw how to do the Wii and how much fun it turned out, her eyes were lit up like a christmas tree. She just looked so happy and so fun to be with. My friends had rented a baseball game for the system and Sharen and I did a home run derby. It was so fun how competitive we got. We were just enjoying the time together. I am enjoying every moment right now because I know that when we have kids these kinds of experiences are not going to be there. But thanks to Sharen and her childlike sense of wonder, I know that I will at least have that memory with me always!

I wanted to have some links this time around but I think that I will have them next time. See ya'll later!!
