10 Things I Like and Dislike These Days...

I'm feeling 6 and 4 today...

* LIKE: Charlie Strong. I mean honestly check out this video...

We're going to "play our balls off this year!" I'm officially excited for football for the first time in years.

* DISLIKE: Jeans. I am on a never ending search for the perfect pair of jeans. I'm not asking for much, I just want them to fit correctly and not cost more than 60 bucks. I don't care if they're straight fit, relax fit, boot fit, etc. I just want them to fit without being too baggy, too tight, too long or too short.

* LIKE: Yahoo Sports Blogs. I don't know if you guys have ever checked out Yahoo Sports' Blogs, but they're outstanding. They have one for every sport and they're usually very informative, well written and entertaining. "The Dagger" and "Ball Don't Lie" are my two faves.

* DISLIKE: The NBA Playoffs. Seriously, I had high hopes for the conference finals and both series appear to be headed for sweeps. I know the Suns are only down 1-0, but I just can't see them beating the Lakers...at all. Hopefully, I'm wrong.

* LIKE: Parenthood. Seriously, this show is awesome. I don't even know how to describe why it's so great, but it is. It's funny, it's dramatic...it's real. Also, they have great music on the show. So far this season they've played, Monsters of Folk, The Avett Brothers, Wilco, Ben Sollee, Josh Ritter, Alexi Murdoch and Neko Case. Seriously, watch it on Hulu...it's just great.

* DISLIKE: TV Season Finales. Tonight is the last Modern Family of the year. I hate when shows go off for the summer because they usually end in some cliff hanger...and plus I don't get to watch them each week. Sigh....I guess it wouldn't kill me to watch less TV.

* LIKE: Music. The past few weeks/months have produced some excellent new albums. Dr. Dog, The New Pornographers, The National, Band of Horses, Jakob Dylan, Josh Ritter, She & Him and Broken Bells have all put out fantastic albums in the last few months. As a result, my ears are very happy.

* LIKE: Snickers Ice Cream Bars. Lautaro bought some mini Snickers Ice Cream bars the other day and I had forgotten how delicious those things are. I mean they might be one of the tastiest things on the planet.

* DISLIKE: Facebook. What's with this new profile thing where you have to "Like" things? I really enjoy using Facebook, but with each change my interest dies a little.

* LIKE: Qdoba. I've had it twice in the last 4 days...It's just so tasty. I can't explain how excited I get when I walk into Qdoba...it's sad.

Have a great Wednesday folks.

Picture of the Day: I took this picture in London two years ago. I want to go back.
