Warner TD Ruled Lateral & My Fantasy Season Is Crazy

So i had lost in the semifinals 126-119 and given up all hope. Then, midweek the nfl changes the ruling on kurt warner's td and my opponent dropped back 7 points making it a tie. I won in the tiebreaker sending me to the super bowl.

Only problem...i didn't know it had happened and i failed to set my lineup for the Super Bowl. I lost...obviously. Peyton got benched and two of my starters should have been swapped out.

Not sure how to fix there a setting somewhere to get real time updates from the NFL when they make an official scoring change?

I believe in Santa Claus

My wife and i had this debate a little before christmas so i'll share my point of view.

The retail industry has made a mockery out of christmas and trumped up santa to the point where many people are stressed out, frustrated, and sick of christmas. Many Christian groups are calling for devout followers to give up the tradition entirely; i disagree.

Santa claus is a great metaphor for what Christmas is all about. Santa claus is God and the metaphor flows easily from there. All those tales about the naughty list and gifts of coal never pan out in the end. Santa brings gifts and glad tidings to all. Likewise, we christians believe that God gave his son to all, sinner and saint, that we may achieve salvation through him.

With this understanding, santa claus is a great tradition. It is unfortunate how often this goes overlooked and unless we teach our children this metaphor, santa will continue to be seen as just another part of the modern decadence.

Remember, all things in moderation.

Google Fade In

Anybody notice google behaving strange lately?

Seems that google is trying an experiment with their search page. Extreme focus is placed on the search box with google's logo as the only other thing on the screen for awhile, and then all the familiars come in after a second or two.

Here's a google forum discussing:

Personally, even though it may look good, I hate it. I don't want things coming and going on a page based off timing events. I actually go to and access other parts of my google persona from the navigation that's there...i've never once been distracted by this navigation when trying to perform a search. please take it away!
