After a week of tests, a weekend of college football, a huge Seahawks win and a good visit from my mother, its time for another Top 10.
This is why they’re the best. Losers make excuses and champions find ways to win. Reggie Bush is the best, most exciting player in college football. Vote Bush for Heisman. I’ll take SC, Cal, AZ St., UCLA, Oregon and Oregon St. against the top six teams in any other conference in the country. Go Pac-10, long live the Pac-10.
2. Seattle Seahawks
Sure, we knew they were going to beat the Texans, but it doesn’t make a 42-10 pasting any less sweet. Next watch as they continue dominating the state of Texas and beat down the Cowgirls.
3. Curtis Brown
He didn’t get the OGB in my previous post but he easily fills the #3 slot in this week’s Top 10. 31 carries for 147 yards and 2 TDs? Game breaking run on 4th down? MWC player of the year? Remember, you heard it here first.
4. My Momma
In town for her sister’s bday, my mother went to the BYU football game with us Saturday night. I think my friends liked talking to her more than me. Is that a bad thing?
5. Rob Jones
Call this my ex-roommate of the week slot. After reading through the entire blog and finding he wasn’t included he turned to me in disgust and said, “this blog sucks.” Thanks Robbie.
6. Kanye West
‘Now I ain’t sayin she a gold digger, but she ain’t messin with no hist’ry major.’ Thanks to Kanye for finally explaining to me why some girls don’t give me the time of day. And that when I do get married, I should ask for a pre-nup. Dang it, I should have been pre-dental.
7. NFL Primetime
Quite possibly the best show on television and definitely better than going to yet another Belmont dessert party where dudes outnumber the girls at least 3 to 1. I’m told there are more girls at BYU than guys. Where are you? Watching NFL Primetime?
8. BYU v. Notre Dame
The football gods heard my prayers and gave us tickets to the game this Saturday. I will make my first pilgrimmage to the Mecca of college football, and, if my sacrifice is satisfactory, maybe BYU will win the game.
9. My Friends
Please excuse the sentimentality… Call this a general shout out to my peeps who make this list just because of who they are. Megan, thanks for smiling. Mandee, congrats on being a “statistician.” Marc and Kenty, for being great roommates. MJ for being my best old friend. Justin for making me think. Matty for being the best brother ever. Caroline, happy bday. Friends are what makes life good.
10. The Smokehouse
I ate yet another pulled pork sandwich at the smokehouse Friday night and it was as delicious as the first. We got there just before close and the crew there at TS treated us great.
