Bro vs. Bro

Some things really intrigue me. I think it is so cool that Jim and John Harbaugh are coaching against each other in the SuperBowl. On my drive in this morning, I was thinking about their dad, and what he must be feeling. I mean, not only does he have two sons who are head coaches in the NFL, but they are both freaking going to the SuperBowl. I mean, COME ON!

Then I started to think about my brother and my nephews, Cooper and Carter. Wouldn't it be cool if they coached against one another in a big ass game? Okay, so it might not be the SuperBowl, but they might be captains of their respective prison softball teams.

“Let’s Get the Whole World to Dance”

I love this video, and I love this kid.

In the video, he says, “Let’s get the whole world to dance.” And I’m all like, right on!

I think the world would be a much better place if people were more willing to laugh at themselves. I love being silly and goofy, and most times have a great capacity to laugh at myself. I think this is a place where my parents greatly succeeded; they taught my brother and me to laugh at ourselves (we’re also pretty good at laughing at others, but that’s beside the point).

And this reminds me of something that happened over the weekend:
My building is next to one bar and across the street from another (I know, awesome, right?!). The other evening, Ignacio and I were walking home from the movies and one of the bars sometimes pumps its music outdoors. Well, as we were approaching the bar, they were pumping the song “Fame”, and I was all like, I can’t stop my feet, and I did these big old jazz runs, some turns, and ended with these big old kicks right past the bar.

And you know what? It felt awesome.

So yeah, let’s get the whole world to dance. The world will be a better place; no doubt about it.
