NFL Draft Day…My Mock

Posted on

Today is a wonderful day, yes call me an NFL geek, but I love the NFL Draft!  I usually sit through the two day event parked on the couch watching TV, but I do have to work some this weekend so not sure how much I will get to watch.  Anyway, I am predicting two trades, but there could be one or two more as teams try to evacuate the top 10.  Here’s my mock draft for your enjoyment 🙂

  1. Stafford, Matthew
  2. Smith, Jason
  3. Curry, Aaron
  4. Monroe, Eugene
  5. Orakpo, Brian
  6. Smith, Andre
  7. Maclin, Jeremy
  8. Sanchez, Mark – Washington
  9. Jackson, Tyson
  10. Crabtree, M.
  11. Oher, Michael
  12. Brown, Everette
  13. Raji, B.J. – Jacksonville
  14. Jenkins, Malcolm
  15. Jerry, Peria
  16. Freeman, Josh – Tampa Bay
  17. Ayers, Robert
  18. English, Larry
  19. Maualuga, Rey – San Diego
  20. Hood, Evander
  21. Moreno, K.
  22. Britton, Eben
  23. Matthews, Clay
  24. Maybin, Aaron
  25. Cushing, Brian
  26. Heyward-Bey, D.
  27. Harvin, Percy
  28. Pettigrew, B.
  29. Britt, Kenny
  30. Nicks, Hakeem
  31. Wells, Chris
  32. Mack, Alex

As far as the Eagles go, I am hoping Knowshon Moreno lands at 21 for us, otherwise we may trade down again since there is no one that stands out at that point.  I think we need to come out of the draft with a RB, a safety, depth on the O-Line, and maybe TE.  Here’s my wish list: Round 1 – RB – Knowshon Moreno/LeSean McCoy, Round 2 – OLB – Clint Sinthim/Marcus Freeman, Round 3 – S – Patrick Chung, Round 5 – OT – Ramon Foster, Round 5 – Trade for 2010 4th Round, Round 5 – TE – Anthony Hill, Round 5 – OLB – Zack Follett, Round 6 – CB/S – Brandon Underwood, Round 7 – QB – Mike Reilly

Time for me to do some housework so I can justify sitting in front of the TV all night long 🙂  Have a good day all!

Extra Magic Hours

Posted on

That’s what Disney World calls opening the park an hour early for resort stayers or leaving the park open late a few hours as well, but for me Extra Magic Hours is right now.  It’s that time where the wife and kids are still asleep usually between 7 and 10 am on Saturday.  My only relaxation period of the week.  I can watch what I want on TV.  I can catch up on things online.  I can eat what I want without having someone say can I have a bite.  Call me selfish, but this is my favorite time of the week 🙂  No Captain’s telling me what they want or need.  Just some good ole me time.  This morning I caught up on a lot of friends online.  I didn’t get to everyone, but enough for right now and my hope is to try and catch a TiVo’ed show before I start hearing the thump thump of some one’s feet on the stairs.  So before my time runs out let me go grab a Tastycake and sit and veg out a bit.  Hope everyone enjoys their day today!

Too late…Matthew’s up now, better luck next week 🙂

Long Overdue Update

Posted on

Yeah I know, I am horrible at keeping things up to date.  I apologize to the 3 people that regularly stop by for up dates.  🙂  In any case, let me give everyone a quick run down of everything that’s happened in the last two months.

Morgan – It’s amazing how time flies.  Morgan’s growing like a weed.  Amazingly it’s almost been a year.  She is crawling great and getting around everywhere.  She has started crawling up the stairs which we had to rope off 🙂  She has 4 teeth now, two front top and bottom.  She laughs and smiles all the time, except when you try and put a camera in front of her face 🙂  Other than that she is great!

Matthew – Is good.  Getting into quite a bit of trouble not listening.  Michelle thinks it has to do with the attention Morgan is getting, but I just don’t buy it.  He has always had issues with listening to us.  He can recite the Subway song or beer commercials non stop but as to what i told him 5 minutes ago, forget about it, literally.  He is a great kid, don’t let me fool you.  I just wish he would listen a little more 🙂

Vacation – For valentines day I surprised Michelle and Matthew with a trip to Disney World.  We will be staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge from May 9th through May 16th.  This will be our second trip to Disney and I can’t be more excited.  I ended up getting an all inclusive thing with food and the whole nine yards.  Michelle has since made reservations at various restaurants around Disney for almost every meal!  Most places you have to set up reservations well in advance.  Anyway, I almost wish it was closer because I am really excited.

Other than that not too much going on.  Our car has been in the shop for 4 days with a broken timing belt and some other minor ailments, as much as almost two grand can be minor.  Right now I am working from home looking out at about a foot of snow so i have to prepare after lunch to go out and get pelted by snowballs by my son who wont stop asking me 🙂  I have put some pics up, and I do apologize.  I can’t believe my last upload was before Halloween.  Anyway I think that will do it for now.  Enjoy the quick update and we’ll talk to you soon.

Latest on Morgan

Since I really don’t want to do any of the house work I really need to do, I figured I would post something here 🙂

Morgan is growing well.  We had the first tooth pop out a couple of weeks ago.  It really hurts, no not her, but my finger when she constantly chews on them 🙂  She is standing up well on us, hasn’t stood on her own yet.  She is sitting up great on her own.  She defintely tries to crawl but gets frustrated when she doesn’t get there fast enough.  Part of her problem is she only rolls one sided, to the right.

Right now Michelle is feeding her, and she’s eating a ton.  Not sure if she is really hungry or heating up the food has helped, but she went through one bowl and Michele asked if she should give her more.  I said if she wants it give it to her 🙂  She likes carrots, doesn’t like green beans, and doesn’t like the cereal much.  Bananas didn’t do much for her, too sweet maybe, because with every bite she would ive that tart face look, it was hilarious 🙂

She loves her bouncer.  She will stand in it and bounce for quite some time.  She enjoys it so much when she stands on Michelle or I she will still bounce all over.  Sleeping is still an issue.  Once every three or four weeks she just refuses to sleep and last night was that night.  Michelle tried for a few hours and was unsuccessful, so I finally took her.  I tried walking around with her, tried laying down with her, finally I came downstairs to try and let Michelle get some sleep.  After about a half hour, I think she gave up 🙂  I put her in her swing when she got quiet and kept talking to her until she fell asleep.  Then I proceeded to endure a horrendous nights sleep on the couch 🙂  But she slept until 7:30, a full 6 or 7 hours, so that was great.  I passed her off to Michelle upstairs and came back down to sleep a little longer.

Well wasted enough time, let me try and get some things done today.  Hope all of you are doing well.

Nothing Special

Posted on

Just a quick update since it’s been over a month, I know, I know, sorry.  I really wish I had a little spare time sometimes.

All is well on the home front.  Morgan and Matthew are doing very good.  No issues to speak of other than Matthew’s not listening and getting in trouble.  Morgan’s getting pretty big 🙂  I think Michelle mentioned 16 pounds recently.  We have an official doctors appointment the 20th so can update you then.  Matthew is learning more numbers and letters everyday.  He just came downstairs and had a Pizza Hut magnet in his hand and rattled off the phone number and said “Daddy let’s call Pizza Hut, I like Pizza Hut for dinner.”  He’s smart, sometimes too smart 🙂  Also some new pics added.  Not much outside of our trip to the zoo, but a few decent shots.

My Beautiful Babies

Work is work.  Keeping me very busy.  The week vacation I had in October seemed to just disintegrate into nothing.  I have 4 weeks to squeeze into the last bit of the year and that’s not gonna happen.  I am taking a week after Thanksgiving and two more after Christmas, but the third is not going to happen.  I honestly can’t wait for the one after Thanksgiving.  I just want some time off.  Try and relax around the house and not think about computers for awhile.  But I doubt that will be the case.  Christmas we have plans to go see my family down at Bethany beach again.  Becoming almost tradition and I don’t mind it at all.  I love the beach.  Hate the sand, love the beach so the cold weather makes it great since I don’t have to get hounded for take me to the beach 🙂

I’ve got a couple of other blogs floating in my head, but just don’t feel like articulating them right now with the laundry and dishes to do so they will have to wait for vacation.  Hope that catches up for now and keeps you subdued for at least a few weeks.  Not much else to report.  Hope everyone out there is doing well.

Love and Miss you All!  Scott

P.S. before I forget.  Anyone wanting to know gift ideas for Christmas, Michelle’s dad is getting us a Wii, which I am grateful for since that was what I was going to get, so anything Wii related for any of us, since it will definitely be used by all of us 🙂  For Matthew he is in love with Star Wars, Spiderman, Iron Man, and Transformers.  Cars is still good, but he has pulled away from them quite a bit.  For Morgan, clothes would be great, 9-12 months.  And if you actually were thinking about Michelle or I, feel free to put anything towards the kids.  This year is gonna be tight for us with the two houses so I have no problem everyone neglecting us.
