  • Child Dedications are this weekend.
  • I will be rolling out campus vision/goals for 08′,  in a couple of weeks.

Life:

Sports:

  • I don’t know what to think about the Mitchell Report, dealing w/ MLB and steroids.  I am beginning to think that the people really don’t care.  If you have a positive tests great…. who knows, there were obviously a bunch of people who used performance enhancing drugs either knowingly or not.  See fan reaction here.

Larry Damerval Predicts OU/Colorado Upset

Larry Damerval a.k.a. “Larry” from the LifeChurch.tv series “30 Days to Live” predicted that the Colorado Buffalos would upset the Oklahoma Sooners and it happened.  Seriously that was something that he wanted Pastor Chris Spradlin to share at his funeral and Spradlin said it and said it several times.  Are you freakin’ kidding me 🙁  I guess Larry does have a direct connection w/ God!

Mike Gundy Goes Off!


I am not an Oklahoma State University football fan; however I have always liked OSU Head Football Coach Mike Gundy and his candor with the media. During Gundy’s post-game press conference following a win over Texas Tech, Gundy went off about an article written by Jenni Carlson about former OSU starting quarterback Bobby Reid. You can check out the article here.  I thought that it was interesting that the article talks about puking and so did Gundy.

Watch this video rant in it’s entirety and  share your thoughts!  Consider these questions: Do we need this same passion, as it relates to Satan’s attacks, Christian Selfishness and the state of the American Church?  When was the last time you, or someone that you know went on a rant and stood up for something that you/they believed in?  Is it necessary to “Go Off” sometimes; in order to get your point across?

Sooners Win National Championship

ou.JPGIt was great to recently see the vehicle that is pictured in this blog.  This is what you call a true, die hard Oklahoma Sooner fan.  College Football season kicks off tomorrow and I could not be more excited.  This year the national ESPN guys are finally giving OU their props.  They all have either OU playing in the national championship or winning it.  The bottom line is that their schedule sets up nicely to do just that.  I am going to make a bold prediction, and yes it will be documented on my blog.  I am picking my Sooner’s to go undefeated and win the National Championship.  I am making this prediction for an OU Team that has some serious unanswered questions, specifically with a red shirt freshman starting at QB.  Please share your comment and represent! 

Who is your favorite college football team and who do you think will win the national championship this year?

Tiger Woods is The Greatest

tiger.jpgTiger Woods is the greatest athlete ever!  I say that without hesitation because this guy is so talented, so focused, and so ridiculously good.  I know there have been some great athletes in the past, such as Babe Ruth, Jack Nicholas, Mohammed Ali, Michael Jordan, Hank Aaron and the list can go on and on.  The bottom line is that all the great athletes in the past had complimentary teammates, or they didn’t have the same level of worldwide competition that Tiger has.  To top it off this weekend at Southern Hills Tiger Woods tamed the course that was supposed to be “Tiger proof.”  Tiger had never won at Southern Hills and not only did he win, he did it in blistering 100+ degree temperatures and did I mention that he came a millimeter from setting a PGA scoring record.  Tiger just put some more jewels in the crown, which is the greatest athlete of all time.  Not only has Tiger revolutionized the sport of golf but he has done it with class.  We need to appreciate this time in history, because we are getting the opportunity to witness one of the greatest athletes ever, in his prime.  For those of us whom consider ourselves leaders, Tiger continues to give free leadership lessons in the areas of: determination, drive, focus, resilience, breaking the rules, breaking the records, pressing through adversity…….  Some of you are probably saying that Tiger has not even broke Jack Nicholas’ records, “Give Me a Break” those records are tumbling and Tiger is just getting started. What can you personally learn from Tiger?  In what areas of your life/job/ministry are you revolutionizing the way things are being done?  Do you have the Eye of the Tiger?
