Happy Little Olive

She was happy after finishing her lunch. So happy, in fact, that she couldn't stop giggling.

And a wave goodbye for good measure.

The Charleston Auto Show

Yesterday was Charleston's annual Car show. They have cars from a long time ago, last year and the future. There weren't a lot of "exotic cars," but it was a solid way to spend a few hours.

The Little Olive was taking it all in. As usual she was skeptical of all the commotion, but she seemed to have a decent time in her new MacLaren stroller. Fitting that a company that makes high end sports cars made Livvy's ride.

Here I am just chillin' in my future ride... a Porche roadster. I had to wear my hat backwards because I didn't want it to blow off in the wind. ;)

There was an authentic Bumble Bee Chevy Camaro from the move Transformers. He was decked out to look exactly like the movie character. My favorite part of him was the Autobot symbol (the representation of good in the Transformer world) on the front quarter panel.

My wife's favorite car of the day. A VW bus. I saw a sign on one of them that said, "Hippies use the side door."

And here is my favorite car of the event... A 1966 Ford Mustang. Look at the way it shines. Pretty, isn't it?

A dude can dream. :)

Look who was being cute at Kroger on Monday.

Date Night

Last Saturday my wife and I went out on the town for a few hours. We went to Charleston's best sushi spot... Ichiban. Above is Charleston Maki and some kind of eel roll... I forget what it was called, but it was good! Also pictured is seared tuna.

Then we stopped at the Boulevard Tavern for a beer and some NFL playoffs. It was a swell night, but we missed our Little Olive.

7 Months Old!

She barely fits in the swing!

Sorry the picture was a little late. We've been busy eating solid food, learning to crawl and getting the Little Olive's first two teeth!

Obie Update

Watch out, Darwin Cook. Orange you wishing you didn't tackle Obie after your touchdown in the Orange Bowl?

Haha. This is hilarious.

2012 Discover Orange Bowl

Wow. That's pretty much all I can say. It's been 3 and a half days since it all went down and I still can't believe it. Dana Holgorsen had HIS Mountaineers prepared to perfection.

I was weary. Sports nation expected Clemson to win. Commentators like Kirk Herbstreit and Mark May were dogging us. We had a big task to conquer.

Then it happened. They played the game.

Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown. Touchdown.

That's right... ten of them. All for WVU... 70 frickin' points!

The game was tight until we scored this touchdown....

That one will go down in history. Darwin Cook will be mentioned with guys like Phil Brady (WVU Punter who faked a punt and picked up a huge first down to secure a Sugar Bowl victory), Wes Ours (WVU fullback who had an amazing catch and run in the 2000 Music City Bowl that sent Don Nehlen out a winner) and Owen Schmitt (WVU fullback who gave perhaps the most inspiring television interview in Mountaineer history after WVU destroyed Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl). Yep. Darwin Cook's play was that huge. It destroyed the hearts of Clemson players and fans alike.

It will be remember for another reason... he tackled "Obie..." the Orange Bowl mascot after he scored.

Here's video of the incident...

As it turns out, the person inside the suit was a young lady. Darwin didn't know that until after the game when he was informed by a WVU reporter.

Glad to see he said his apologies.

What an awesome night, though. As I'm typing this right now, I still can't believe it.
