Back in the saddle, thanks to Rubie for filling in last week. Rubie is now actually off traveling Europe this week. I imagine him walking around Italy with his fanny pack saying "Ciao" to every single person, cause that's the only Italian he knows.
It was a gorgeous day on Saturday for Al's Run. I only walked 3 miles and yet I'm still sore today. For a great cause and was fantastic to see 15K+ participants this year. Kevin Buckley from Cracked Sidewalks has some photos.
This might be my last morning coffee post here at AE. Why? I might be dead after running the 3rd leg of this race this Saturday in Chicago. I've got obstacles 5 & 6. The stairs at Soldier Field are going to be brutal. This is the 4th year of the race, the winning relay team the first 3 years was a group called "The Marquette Guys." Hopefully we'll see a repeat from them again.
Please make sure to vote on the poll question at the bottom.
Question: What kind of loser with 41-16 lead in the 4th quarter goes for 2 instead of kicking a PAT? Answer: This loser. Stay classy Wisconsin.

Well the big news was Juan Anderson committing to Marquette. I'm not going to be all giddy about this. Recruiting is such a crap-shoot we have no idea how this kid will turn out. I hope for the best, but won't be disappointed if he isn't a world beater.
