Went to the Browns preseason football game against the Chicago Bears. It was me, my wife, and our friends Dave and Carolyn. It was nice to hang out with them, but the game wasn't so good, since they played a lot of third string players and guys that probably wont make the team. Also, they managed to lose towards the end of the game. I was excited to go though, since the Browns are expected to be good this season, and tickets are probably going to be hard to get during the regular season. I will also say I was pleasantly surprised with the seats we got. It was section 509, which sounds like nose bleeds, but it was towards the bottom of the level, we could see the players pretty well, and it was at midfield. I will have to look for tickets like that in the future. Doubt I will have any luck this season though. I guess I can always cross my fingers....

Thought it was time to make my updates on news on my homepage easier to update, so I am converting to a blog. I think this is better because I can more quickly make changes and also I can do it from anywhere. Also, I know that this a "Transformers" site, but I am going to start making some post on here that aren't really about them. I don't really believe I get that many visitors, and if I do, and they don't want to read my blog, they don't have to (Or if I have to, I will just go back to just Transformers, and do a personal blog elsewhere). Anyway, I just started a new job last week, and have had a lot going on in my personal life the last few weeks, and thought that there are so many milestones I have had in my life that the details have gotten a bit sketchy to me. Why not blog these things, and going forward, I can better remember them. I am going to backdate some entries from the last couple of weeks up to this current one. Guess I will see how it goes. Thanks

Got to go to Crue Fest at Blossom Music Center, and it was an awesome show. All the bands were good. I was not disappointed with one. Motley Crue and Buckcherry especially. Motley Crue was better than when I saw them last year, though I have to admit the video they showed on the screens bothered me some. I admit I did enjoy some of it, being a guy and all, but the video montage consisted of what I felt was three themes, and all bothered me in some ways. It was war, hardcore porn, and making President Bush look stupid. War is bad, and I generally feel there is not much I have to say there. The porn I felt was just too excessive, and while I know this is an adult show, I felt there were too many kids around for it to be showing like it was. Maybe I am just getting old. As far as Bush, I don't mind if people have problems with him, I just hate the reflection on people it presents. It just seems a little unpatriotic to me to dog out any of our Presidents like this in such a public non-political forum. I also am just tired of seeing it now everywhere you go, and feel it is mostly done now because it is the popular thing to do. Okay, I will get off the soap box now.... Anyway, it was a great show, and the bands all rocked. I really did enjoy it. We saw Poison in concert the week before, and while they also were really awesome, this show with the Crue was definitely better.
