Yesterday Georgia Bulldog mascot Uga VII passed away. A wreath will be placed around his doghouse at the Georgia v. Kentucky game tomorrow. UGA VII was known to be less energetic than his predecessors, but especially friendly with people. There has yet to be an announcement on when the new UGA VIII will take the oath.

Whatever your feelings are on the University of Georgia, there's no denying that UGA is the greatest mascot ever. I'm not a Georgia fan myself, but look at that face! Actually I'm mostly just messing around trying to figure out how to get video to my blog and thought this was worthwhile. But UGA is the greatest mascot ever! RIP

2009 Finished

Wow, amazing race this morning. People can say what they want about having a World Championship on a flat course, and I agree to a certain extent, but you can't deny that having a lead pack of 20 guys off the bike together makes for a very exciting race. Blazing fast out there. 15 guys ride under 2 hours on the bike, a 69 minute run to win the race, winning time of 3:34, and a woman breaks 4 hours for the first time ever. Pretty amazing. And the woman who won today crashed earlier in the year and broke some ribs, just goes to show that you can't call it a season and give up when things don't go the way you plan. Lesson learned. My time which placed me 19th last year would have gotten me 44th this year. 70.3 racing seems to direction the sport of triathlon is headed in right now. Oh yeah, my predictions were way off.

Off to Blackstock Stadium right now to tailgate and then headed to the DePauw/Wabash Monon Bell football game! Already beginning to look forward to 2010.

Up Early for Clearwater

Up before the sun to watch the World Championship 70.3 online and reminisce about the experience a year ago. Race goes off in 8 minutes, here are my predictions.

1. Matty Reed
2. Greg Bennett
3. Richie Cunningham
4. Joe Gambles
5. Tim O'Donnell
6. Start Hayes
7. Brent McMahon
8. Dirk Bockel
9. Terenzo
10. Brian Fleischmann

1. Julie Dibens
2. Jodie Swallow
3. Rebeccah Wassner

Last month I correctly named 6 out of the top 10 in Kona, we'll see how it goes in a few hours. Looks like great coverage and should be a very exciting race.

Website Finished! is now complete! A website is something I've been meaning to do for over a year now so it feels great to finally have one online.

I'd like to give a huge thanks to Paul Asay for all his help with this project. And when I say "help" I really mean "doing all the work". Also a big thanks to photographer Christine Wood who snapped the great shot of me on the homepage and was kind enough to donate it for the site.
