Happy September to you all! It is time to kick this month off with a Thursday Rundown.
Tropical Storm Hermine – Once again I find myself in the path of a hurricane. Myrtle Beach is scheduled to meet Hermine (or at least the byproducts of Hermine) late tomorrow afternoon. It is supposed to pass through and pave the way for a beautiful Labor Day weekend by Saturday morning. Since living in the area I have experienced the powerful rains (remember this?) and forceful winds brought on my hurricanes but thankfully I have never found myself in the middle of destruction. I have another great feeling that we will be just fine.
Happy Birthday, Mikayla – On Labor Day, my niece will turn two years old. It seemed like just yesterday I was blogging about her birth and now she is a toddler. Mikayla is closing out her time as a 1-year-old on a tough note, however. Today she was at the hospital to get tubes put into her ears. The hope is that she will start to hear a little better with them in. When she celebrates at her party on Monday, the “Happy Birthday” song will undoubtedly sound like music to her ears.
College Football Is Here – There is no sport I enjoy more than college football. With the opening weekend now here I could not be more excited. At the risk of sounding corny, there is just a special feeling in the air during each Saturday of college football season that I find irresistable. Go Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, Montana Grizzlies, Washington State Cougars, and Notre Dame Fighting Irish!!
Tim Tebow – You can say what you want about Tim Tebow but please admit this: What he did on Tuesday was pretty awesome. The man put on a respectable tryout for Major League Baseball scouts. At 29, Tebow picked up a baseball for the first time this year since last playing during his high school days. The refresher course was enough for him to smash homeruns, hit big league pitching, and field fly balls like a natural. I really hope he continues to improve his skills and eventually earn a professional contract.
From the Archives – One year ago today, Coastal Carolina University accepted an invite to join the Sun Belt Conference. It was such a fun day to work! Later that night I wrote about what the conference upgrade meant and how proud it made me feel. On a completely different note, two years ago I wrote about why I tend to dislike specific third down songs that college and NFL teams use. Go ahead and read the post if you are up to it.
It is now time for me to take cover from Tropical Storm Hermine. Hope you all enjoy your September. Don’t Blink.
