Happy #2

Yesterday, our third little boy, Noah, turned 2. We've been lucky so far with Eric and Timo, so we don't really fear the "terrible twos." Although, Noah might be the first one to install that fear.
He's usually a good little boy. He always lights up our day with his love and infectious personality. Only he and Jack Black can make 50 different faces per second.

Noah's 3 favorite things:

Cake (of course)
Showing off his round belly
Boise State

We start the Boise State brainwashing early around here.

Happy Birthday Noah!!

After a long day, Mommy and birthday boy need a well deserved nap.

A shameless plug

Do you ever feel like blogging, but you're not sure what to blog about? Ever feel like you have something to say, but you're not sure how to say it?? Me too!!

Fortunately I came up with a solution...sorta.

Since I can't come up with anything good and I feel this ridiculous urge to blog anyway, I thought I would give my other blog a shameless plug.

A couple weeks ago I started my own Boise State Football blog. I thought I would be able to add some insight and maybe even some perspective on BSU football games....I'm not sure if it's working, but I enjoy doing it.
I try to give my own analysis on games and other BSU football news while adding a sprinkle of humor here and there.

If nothing else I add cool pictures and sometimes highlight videos.

You can find the link to my football blog right on "Jeremy's Forum!!" I know, I know, I'm all about being user friendly. The blog is called, "The Blue Turf" and it's under "My daily rotation."

If for some reason you need a Boise State Football fix, feel free to visit my site. I try to give my own two cents in the blog so you can also comment and tell me if I'm way off base. I'll probably disagree but that's part of the fun!

One warning before you rush on over there. I'm still a bit erratic when it comes to posting. I had the intention of posting 5 times per week or so. It turns out I'm even lazier then I thought....but I'm working on it!

Then came Eric....thank goodness!

Yep, that's me. Go ahead, laugh, it's ok, I'll wait.......there's a lot to notice about this goofy picture. First, I'm wearing adult cowboy boots, I have 80's hair, for some reason I'm sticking my fingers in both ears, you can see my mom's giant hair in the shadow, and I'm in my underwear, pee stained underwear mind you. I look at this picture and at the least smirk everytime.

Then I look at pictures of my boys, specifically Eric and realize how blessed I am they got Becka's looks. Phewwww!!
When I want to see a naked kid in cowboy boots with pee stained underwear jamming his fingers into both ears I'll look at my childhood pictures. I have a theory of why I was always plugging my ears but that's for another post....and maybe therapy.
Anyway, I'm glad Eric is turning into such a handsome little guy. He's always photogentic and I'm happily jealous.

He also throws a mean football!

Weekend visit

The four of us last year at Table Rock in Boise

This past weekend one of my best friends from my kidhood (yeah I made that up) came to visit Becka and I. My friend Justin and his pretty wife Kjerstin visited us for the first time since being back in Idaho.

We always enjoy their company but to me it was especially sweet this time. Justin is one of those people who "get" me.

Plus, my brother Brent and I, talk about how we "married up." Justin has definately done this with Kjerstin.  

Anyway, I was happy they were able to drive over from Rexburg this weekend to visit.

Oh yeah, here's a subtle hint.....

Becka and I wish Justin and Kjerstin would move closer to Boise.

A Cult Classic

We watch a lot of movies at our house.  I enjoy a wide variety of genres.  One genre I'm particulally fond of is 80's movies.  The movie at the top of my 80's movie list has to be "Rad."  
Don't fret if you haven't seen it.  It came out in 1986 and hasn't been released onto DVD yet.  Some type of copyright issue.  So, chances are if you haven't seen it on VHS or downloaded it off the internet you haven't seen it.  
Rad is a BMX movie, which wasn't quite mainstream yet in the mid-80's.  Watching all the tricks that could be done was amazing to my youthful eyes.  In the movie Cru Jones does a backflip with his bike and it was such a big deal.  In another scene, two of the main characters crash their school dance with their BMXs putting on some type of bike trick dance show for the crowd.  It's cheesy 80's movie euphoria!  
When I was younger this movie inspired me to become my own bike trickster on my yellow schwinn.  I still remember the first time I was able to pop my back tire.  That was big for me (I was only 8).  Unfortunately, I didn't get much better then that.  It turns out being able to perform tricks on your bike actually takes some athleticism.  I was, uh, husky to say the least.
Now days, I'm not into the X Games you see on ESPN but every now and then I catch myself watching BMXers perform on a halfpipe.  I know that goes back to watching Rad as a kid.  

A couple years ago I downloaded the movie off the internet and burned to a cd.  I found it again the other day.  I'm so excited to watch it again!  

So, if you love 80's movies and have a slight interest in bicycles you might want to see it.  
Oh yeah, and it has Lori Laughlin in know...John Stamos' wife from Full House.

I think Jeron Johnson enjoys hurting people

Going back to Boise State's last game, I finally found the video I've wanted to post since the game. Safety Jeron Johnson is a lethal hitting machine.
I'm pretty sure he should be illegal. He's obviously more dangerous then bullets. He should be required to carry his own permit to
walk around in public.
He may or may not kill someone before the season is done. If he doesn’t off someone, he sure will try.

Scrambling quarterbacks, bumbling running backs, and receivers going over the middle should be frightened. They will hear the footsteps before potentially getting plowed by someone who uses his body as a wrecking ball. He fears no one and only wants to inflict pain upon you as you dare to
gain yardage in his territory. Do not Enter. Feel free to watch with your mouth open and say, oooooooh.

I heard Russell Hill (the victim) broke his nose from the hit but I'm not sure if that's true. Either way, it was confirmed it was bleeding quite badly. To his credit he came back the next series and played ultimately finishing the game.

The moral of the story:

Don't get on Jeron Johnson's bad side.

Kellen Moore follow-up

Saturday night, as expected Boise State beat the crap out of in-state foe, Idaho State. Final score was 49-7. My pre-game prediction was 49-3. No applause necessary.
I'm going to avoid making this some sort of BSU post game analysis blog. Instead, this is more of a follow up to my blog that I posted a couple weeks ago. You know, the one where I was so excited Boise State announced their new starting quarterback, freshman Kellen Moore. Here is a picture to remind you:

Saturday, was Moore's college football debut and I dare say he exceeded expectations.

He was 14-19 for 274 yards, 2 touchdowns and most important, no INTs.

It was more then his stats even though they were great. Oh, I forgot to mention. Those stats were through three quarters! Anyway, he has great pocket presence and never panicked. He picked apart the defense. He dumped the ball off when he had to and even completed an 80 yard bomb to Titus Young which he took to the house. The long heave was an absolute perfect pass.

Forget that Idaho State is a lower level of competition. We're talking about his college debut in front of a Boise State crowd with very lofty expectations. He should have showed signs of nervousness. He didn't. He has ice in his veins.

Of course he will show what he is really made of over the next two games and ultimately the rest of the season. The next two games Boise faces Bowling Green (they beat PITT in PITT this weekend), then after that they travel to Eugene to play Oregon. One of the hardest stadiums to play in the nation. Eventually he'll make some mistakes. Even Bronco Nation knows that, but the signs of a great college quarterback are already noticeable.

Mark my words and live by them. He WILL and I believe it unequivocally, Moore will lead Boise State to another BCS bowl game before he leaves the Broncos. I would bet the farm on it without thinking twice. Right now the team is very very young but very very talented. It will happen behind the left arm of Kellen Moore.

Party On!
