The Broncos did all that they could to win the game. They have had tons of injuries. Javon Walker is out. Travis Henry is out. John Lynch got hurt in the game and didn't return. Cutler played pretty good. He had no interceptions.
I am really getting tired of the cornerback's, though. Champ Bailey and Dre' Bly are overrated and have done nothing! All they did tonight was give up the two touchdowns that beat the Broncos. I personally can't stand Champ Bailey. I have seen him twice personally in situations with fans and he was an ass. My brother and his wife saw him at a restaurant in Denver once and said the same thing. Champ, you need to get your big head out of your rear and start playing "team" ball!
I have been a Broncos fan my entire life. I really don't see them making the playoffs this year. They are now 3-4 and trail the Chargers and Chiefs, yes, I said Chiefs. It kills me to say that, but it's true. They are stinking this year.
Well, back to the drawing board. They are off to Detroit Sunday. Go Broncos! I still do think that Bailey and Bly suck, though!

Tonight was the first game that I have played in since the playoffs last season. I am so out of shape. Kristi said that I did good, but she's my wife, what else could she say....to my face. :)
This is a picture of our jersey logo. My jersey wasn't in yet, well it was, but it was a size medium. That's just a wee bit to small for me. I was #22 and had the last name of "Irwin." I had to use someones jersey who wasn't there. I like them. The colors are just like my favorite old team in the NHL, the Hartford Whalers.

The soundtracks from those movies have been named among the 50 greatest by the editors of Vanity Fair magazine. The full list will be revealed next month in a one-time Conde Nast magazine, Movies Rock, for subscribers of its 14 titles.
"Purple Rain" topped the chart even though it was described as "perhaps the best badly acted film ever," editors at Vanity Fair said, while "Trainspotting" came in at No. 7 and "Saturday Night Fever" was eighth.
The Vanity Fair editors said the "Purple Rain" soundtrack was a flawless combination of "funk, R&B, pop, metal, and even psychedelia into a sound that defined the '80s."
"A Hard Day's Night" came in a No. 2, followed by "The Harder They Come," "Pulp Fiction," "The Graduate" and "Superfly." "American Graffiti" and "The Big Chill" rounded out the top 10.
"Saturday Night Fever's" soundtrack is "required listening for anyone looking to heat up the dance floor," the editors said. "The white suit? Not so much."
Movies Rock, which will feature stories and photos of the projects, stars, directors and musicians who created the selected movies, launches ahead of a two-hour CBS broadcast of the same title in December.
I would have to say that "Purple Rain" is probably the best movie soundtrack. It's also the first Rated R movie that I sneaked in to see! It was at the Battlefield Mall in Springfield, MO. I was with my friend Mark Dinwiddie. Our parents thought we were going to see "Red Dawn." Well, Patty, Pam and Jeremy did, but Mark and I went to "Purple Rain." The acting was horrible, but it was something interesting to a couple of kids that have never seen something like that before. I also went into the club that the movie was filmed in a few years ago. It's in Minneapolis. I believe that it's been torn down or changed into something else since.

Jay Cutler threw for 248 yards and three touchdowns, one each to Cecil Sapp, Tony Scheffler and Brandon Stokley. Travis Henry rushed for 51 yards, while Brandon Marshall led the Denver receivers with six catches for 77 yards.
Domonique Foxworth recorded 10 tackles for the Denver defense, while Elvis Dumervil added a pair of sacks. One of Dumervil's sacks resulted in a fumble which Tim Crowder returned for a 50-yard touchdown. Dre' Bly and D.J. Williams each recorded an interception.

We had a "going away" party yesterday for a lady at our Little Rock claim office. One of the supervisors called a Wal-Mart and ordered the cake.
He told them to write:
"Best Wishes Suzanne" and underneath that write "We will miss you".
As the picture shows, it didn't quite turn out right. It was too funny not to keep it.

Here's a picture of Tiana with one of her early B-Day gifts. We had a certificate to a Halloween place in town. She wanted a costume. The Hannah Montana costumes were too expensive, but she found one that she liked. It's called the "Drama Queen." That's perfect for her.
I will have some pictures of the weekend posted later.

Dear Craig, You will never know how much it meant to our family for you to come and serve at Kent's funeral. It would've meant so much to him. It was special to "connect" with you again. Thanks for caring enough! - The Hagelgantz Family
I received that letter at work today. It was very nice to receive this letter. I really miss having him around this time of year. We would talk about football, the baseball playoffs and of course, hockey. I watched the Rockies game the other night and thought about us going to their very first game together. I watched the Indians game last night and thought about when we went to Jacob's Field in Cleveland.
Friends and family are very important. Moments like this make me realize this. Please cherish every moment that you have with your friends and family. You never know what is going to happen to them. I am so glad that I have great kids, wife and step-kids. I am so glad that we are all growing closer and closer by the day. I am not going to die miserable, like a few people that I know. Life is too short. It's not worth playing "the victim" in everything. Kent was a victim of a terrible cancer, but he lived his entire life, down to his final moments as a happy person who loved every member of his family and all of his friends. That's a great example. I miss you, my friend. Rest in Peace.
I woke Kristi up with my cheering. I wish that Grandma Hubbard was alive to see this happen. She was a huge baseball fan. I remember when her and Lucille went on a trip and took in a handful of games along the way. She would have been happy to have see Colorado's win.
The Rockies are going to have a few days off until they meet either Cleveland or Boston in the World Series. The Indians are up 3 games to 1 and I am pulling for them to win. I get tired of the Yankees and Red Sox. It would be cool to see the Tribe and Rockies in the series. I am going for the Rockies, for sure.

At the 10 year reunion in July of 1998, I wasn't married and had no kids. How times have changed. At the 20th, I will be married and have 6 kids total. That will raise a few eyebrows. It looks like it's going to be July 26, 2008. It's my weekend with the kids. Last time they had events planned for the whole family, so I will probably do that this time around.

The Broncos have a Bye Week next weekend. They have games against the Steelers and Packers coming up after that. This might be a long season for us Broncos fans.
Every year during October, they have lots of events going on. They have a Corn Maze, Covered Wagon rides, rides to see the Buffalo in the field, and much more. Linda, the owner sent me some tickets to give away on the air and to bring up the family. We brought up a herd of our own. Kory, Darla and their kids joined the Hubbard and Nice crew for the excitement. Here's all the kids just before we got ready to leave. It was a great time, but a long day.

The Cubs lost game 3 of the National League Divisional Series to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night. The final was 5-1. I am very disappointed in the way that they played in all three games. There were terrible decisions and the key players didn't rise to the occasion. You can't win if you don't play well. That's what happened to the Cubs. You can blame it on the "Goat" or "Steve Bartman," but the Cubbies are going to go at least 100 years between World Series Championships. It was 1908 when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, defeating the Detroit Tigers 4 games to 1. It's about time to change this. I gotta admit. I am tired of talking about it and I am not going to even think of the Cubs until next spring. It's a touchy subject.
The Jayhawks are back in Lawrence to take on Baylor next Saturday. I am excited to see if KU will be ranked after this weekend. Go Hawks!

I was excited to see that they took this game. That's 15 wins in 16 games. They are on fire! Now if the Cubs can win tonight!
