Letter of Intent


Dear Summer/Football -

While I LOVE to coach football, it just seems unfair that I still have to rise and shine at 6:00am, Monday - Thursday, and drive to "work" to coach. I mean, who wouldn't love to be on "summer vacation" only to get up 4 days a week and take the same route to work that you took 190 times before???!!! All I'm asking is that the reminders of work aren't so prevalent each morning.


Football guy who really likes football enough to ignore the fact he is still driving to school even though no classes are in session

Dear Dr. -

Seems to me you could have fixed any issues with a more thorough exam the first time through. Not the best feeling when you can't even find the old files that explain what you did 5 years ago and make my wife and kid wait hour after hour so that you can give us 4 options - THEN - you are out of the office for the next 6 days so we can't begin treatment for at least 2 more weeks. Sure, you have lots of people you see and need that vacation time too - well, we are on vacation as well and I only have 1 Colinboy... so I'd appreciate it if you got your butt back to work (or at least returned phone calls from your assistant who is "trying" to help us right now).

Thanks a million,

Dr. Dad

Dear Faces in the Crowd -

I know - it's been a few days since my last post...I have a hard time posting about the same topics - especially since it's summer break and football is going on (I mean, seriously, how many times can I say it's summer break and that football is going on? - well, 3 times in this post already if you are keeping track). So, forgive my lack of posting - but, you know, it seems "almost pointless" to post on here when I have 18 followers and get an average of 4 comments per post. Oh yes - I realize that I am not following posts while I am not posting myself - and I'm actually giving myself a lecture right now! Anyway, don't know how much more I will be posting....


Bloggy Guy who likes comments and started this blog to see how many he could get while not really having much to say and realizing that people would only comment if interesting posts were left but sadly could not come up with anything better than what is already on here and also didn't keep up with people he followed either complicating matters or basically becoming hypocritical in action and words

Bwahahahahaha! I am cracking up at your last letter and Bloggy Guy's sign-off. You need to get one of those widgets that says, "Will blog for comments." Here's the secret to getting them- the more comments you leave on other people's blogs the more you'll get in return. And it is ALWAYS so much less in relation to your followers. I have 281 followers (I think?) and the most I average is around 30 comments on one blog post depending on the content. Hang in there though, it'll happen for ya'. Did you check out those other guy bloggers? They're great about leaving comments.

Sorry to hear about this doctor. Sounds like he needs to be taken down a few notches.

And seriously- if all you have to write about is football then go for it! Pick out the funny stories that happen and write on those. Like the squirrel you ran over on the way to practice or the kid who showed up late and you made him run LOTS and then he puked and you laughed at him. You know- the funny stuff. :D

Thanks for linking up! How was this for a comment? Pretty impressive, huh? Yeah, I'm humble too.

You are a nut. Really.

Especially that business of getting up at 6:00 am during summer. Crazy!

I, for one, am very happy to read about football. And, seriously, you are a coach & a dad. There has got to be some blog fodder in there somewhere. My main goal for a post is, "Will sharing this story mortify my children someday?" If yes, then go for it buddy! Please don't stop - I really have enjoyed your posts. So does my hubby.

Tiffany said...

And, by the way, you now have 19 followers.
