The Ron Rivera Inconsistency

Ron Rivera is an interesting coach. As a man, he's very well respected in the world of football. Maybe not loved but definitely very highly respected. Everybody speaks of his integrity, his leadership, his ability to command the respect of his players and no matter how bad the seasons gets, his players never seem to throw in the towel. Even in the back end of losing seasons (which is all he has so far with the Commanders), his teams find ways to win games they have no business winning.  So why then does he confound people with his words and actions? In the last 4 years as Commanders coach, there's hardly a criticism of his stewardship of the team without a prefix of "great man". And yet, he lies...a LOT! He changes his tune every time he speaks to the press. He throws players under the bus as a matter of routine (Landon Collins, William Jackson III, Chase Young, Jamin Davis, Emanuel Forbes are stuck to the bottom of Ron Rivera's bus). And with the latest leaks tha

High school? How can that be?

In 3 days, both kids start high school. It's crazy, where has the time gone? It seems like it was just yesterday they were starting kindergarten...look at this picture: This summer has been a crazy one with both kids trying out for high school soccer, making the teams and practicing and playing scrimmages. And parent meetings, New Student Orientation etc...I feel like I practically live at the school! And that's all before the first official day of school.  So yeah, high school is here. 🤯 PS Hopefully, in 4 years, I'll be back to say "college already? where has the time gone?!"

The Teenage Years Cometh

If you're lucky, a few days after your twins are born, the hospital just let's you walk out with them. In fact, they insist you take them with you. No training, no classes, no probation...they really just let you walk out with 2 humans. #fatherhood — Tundey A. (@realtundey) November 28, 2021 This was me 12 years ago: And now look at them. In a little over 6 months, they'll be teenagers!   Every time I look at them, I am reminded of Obama's quote on being a parent:  "One of my favorite sayings about having children is it's like having your heart walking around outside your body." — @POTUS — White House Archived (@ObamaWhiteHouse) October 21, 2015

Football Shape

 If you're a fan of the NFL, you've heard this term before, "Football shape". You hear it whenever a player is coming off injury and wants to get back into the action. The team says "Joe is getting back into shape but he's not in football shape  yet". The player (if young) may think he's ready, he may even be posting workout videos (shirtless of course) on Instagram showing off his physical fitness. But nope, he's not in football shape yet and can't get back on the field. Or he gets back on the field and he just doesn't have that burst. Well after a COVID-induced 1-year layoff from playing regular pickup soccer, I got back into it couple of days ago. Yeah I know, it's not the same level as the NFL. But boy oh boy, was I not in pickup soccer shape ! Physically and I think mentally too. Physically, I didn't have my normal endurance...couldn't play 2 hours without taking multiple stints as goalkeeper (a task nobody wants to do bu

Time Travel

 On November 25th , I ordered a couple of items from Bed, Bath & Beyond. It was late on Thanksgiving, I was up and decided to take a quick look at early Black Friday deals. The air fryer I had been eyeing for a few months was finally on sale. And I needed a comforter set. So why not kill 2 birds with one stone? I ordered both items for delivery (2-3 business days). Whatever, not an urgent need.  Friday afternoon, I received an email from BBB, my items have been split into 2 shipments. The first shipment is on the way. Here's the tracking number. Oh nice...I clicked on the tracking number and got this: I do not list in NJ Go ahead, click on it and take a look at the dates. According to that tracking info, the package was shipped on October 13th! Yeah, that's the reason for the title of this post. Somehow, BBB issued an already-used tracking number for my shipment. It gets worse. Both shipments were assigned different used tracking numbers. Both tracking numbers were for pack
