Drew advances to division III championship game
The Drew University men's soccer team defeated Wheaton (Mass.) 4-2 in penalty kicks yesterday after playing to a 1-1 tie through two overtime periods. The local newspaper has a fantastic photo gallery including this one with #16, my cousin Matt:
Watch those onions, kid!

My commute just got a little easier
The state of New Jersey has finally finished construction on the intersection of Route 10 and Ridgedale Avenue in East Hanover. I've been sitting in construction traffic at this intersection for the past 8 months and I can honestly say that this was a worthwhile improvement project. However, a comment by New Jersey transportation commissioner Jack Lettiere perplexes me:
In Morris County alone, residents spend 14,000 hours annually in traffic.Huh? Does that mean I sit in 38 hours of traffic per day? Or if you eliminate weekends, 53 hours per day?

Why are my cousins so athletically-inclined while my sister and I are total spazzes?
Best of luck to Chrissie and the rest of the GL soccer team as they face off against Indian Hills today in the state semi-finals. Go Marla!

Drew soccer rolls into the elite eight
Yesterday, the Drew University men's soccer team defeated Virginia-Wesleyan 3-0 to advance to today's NCAA Division III regional final versus Stevens Tech.
Today, my cousin Matt scored one goal and was robbed of another as Drew won 2-0. Early in the second half, Matt had a great shot in what was then a scoreless game. The opposing goalie was down, so the only thing between Matt and the goal was a single Stevens defender who put up his hands to deflect the ball. Robbed! However, the defender was given a red card and Stevens played the remainder of the game one man down. About 15 minutes later, Matt headed in what would become the game-winning goal.

Car Crashes Into Jim's Restaurant
The 50-something-year-old woman who slammed her car into a San Antonio restaurant is remarkably younger than the typical accidental-gas-pedal-pusher. Normally, 90-year-olds are mixing up the pedals.

Three years later, I'm still stupid
Shit! I missed commemorating the three-year mark. Won't someone remind me of our anniversary next November 7th?

The tyranny of Tivo
Check out this short but engaging San Diego Union-Tribune article about the newly discovered anxieties that many Tivo owners (myself included) are suffering. Digital video recorders like Tivo were supposed to simplify our lives; instead, the backlog of recorded shows has materialized itself as pure television overload.

Boy faces assault charges for giving a hickey
Be careful if you're ever in Richland Hills, Texas and you give someone a hickey. You could be looking at a Class C misdemeanor. And even though that love bite may only be temporary, it's going on your permanent record.

The old fake-roll-of-quarters ruse
How does a story about a woman bilking the local McDonald's out of two soft drinks and $7.63 make the local news? Oh wait...it's Oklahoma...nevermind.
