Lions Winning Ways and New Fears to the New Year

By the time, the Detroit Lions started to lose is when I became interested in the opposite sex. With that said, I have had picture being with a lovely lady on New Year's Eve way before the Lions win three games in a row. As the Lions won their third game in a row this past Sunday, and here I am not with a lady, but plotting what to do New Year's Eve. Should I stay home, try to find some friends and go out, or brave dealing drunken buffoons by myself. Either way I happy the Lions are finding success and I guess better late than never. There are issues the Lions will face between now and the start of the new season.

1.) Lack of CBA: As it stands today, there is no Collective Bargaining Agreement between owners and players. And if there is not an agreement in place by early March; players will be lockout of their place of work. And for the Lions that is not good if they want to get better.
2.) Uncertainty of the quarterback position: With Matthew Stafford being constantly injurer and with back-ups: Drew Stanton and Shaun Hill equaling each other out. There is no way Lions can make progress if there is not a quarterback who can constantly play.
3.) Drafting: Which side of the ball the Lions should draft first: offense or defense? I said defense, as the offense is set and only will get better with time and the defense lack depth especially in the secondary.

Lessons from Alabama

During Christmas My family and I went to a small town called Atmore, Alabama, which it sits between Mobile, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida. I had learn so many things in the town, and I want others to learn these things too.

1.) Smart phones, especially use for business is not a good idea to have in Atmore outside of the casino in town.
2.) In fact, expect inconsistent coverage with all phones down there.
3.) Be prepare to move around for shopping trips, as Atmore do not have a lot of stores and usually super slow on Sundays.
4.) Enjoy both family (if you have any in town) and the stars in the sky (if there are any) as they are both fun and cool.
5.) Creativity counts, and making your own entertainment is one the best ways to make your trip to Atmore, Alabama truly count.
See any small town can be fun, you just need some wits, creativity and family and that is very important. I hope everyone enjoy their Christmas and will have a Happy New Year's Eve.

Letter to Soulja Boy

For those who do not know what is going on.

Dear Soulja Boy,

You do not know me, or I do not know you. With that said, I do not have any issues with your musical tastes. I respect someone who put unknown regional musicians ahead of highly known national or international musicians. Especially since, I know people with different musical taste that might be questionable to others; that is no big deal to me. The only issue I have with your Top 25 albums of all time on, is your language. Serious question, does every other word that comes out of your mouth have to be "sh*t" and "n*gga" on giving reasons why an album is on your list; especially in an interview.What if a CEO of an company want you to market their product to consumers, but have no idea who you really are, outside of music you had produced and the interviews like the one you did for I know you are going to use different words when it involves receiving money from companies, but still you need to chill out with language in a professional setting, especially in an interview, because you do not know who could be reading the transcripts or listening to the audio.
