My foot…hurts

by Kyle Smith

Well last night was the final game for indoor soccer. It was the battle for the bottom. There were four teams in our division and us and the third ranked team were playing for third place. We started off with an early 3-0 lead. They brought it back within 1 making it 4-3, but that’s where it ended for them. We came back in the second half with fire, and came out on top 8-3. So we placed third out of four teams. The unfortunate thing is that I think I fractured my foot. I had an open shot and the goalie came out and instead of picking the ball up he decided to try and kick it away. Well if you know me it seems like my purpose in life is to be the one to get hurt and I didn’t want to let anyone down so I had to live up to my expectations.
So, I kicked the ball as hard as I could and the goalie did the same to block it except he didn’t connect with the ball only my foot. Needless to say, my foot is bruised and battered today. The good thing is it only hurts all the time! I can’t wait to drive long hours this weekend on it, it’ll be swell…
Well here’s the photo of the week of the place I surprisingly miss too much…

What will the local weathermen do now?

by Kyle Smith

Well, it looks like Dean isn’t heading towards Houston. I guess the weather men will have to find some new sensation in the gulf to freak out about. Technically I guess we still kinda sorta possibly maybe might get hit maybe possibly by Dean but doubtful. Happy Monday!

I’m hungry!

Thanks to Tropical Storm Erin I’m stuck at work and can’t leave for lunch. Luckily HR has a popcorn machine and I’m surviving off of the salt, butter and corn! Man as soon as the water recedes I’m heading to Taco Bell!!!!!

San Jacinto College Futbol…

by Kyle Smith

Today is the day I’ve been not waiting for. I’ve been given the task to take all the portrait photos for the soccer team. It’s not that I don’t enjoy taking portraits, but as one of my cohorts put it, now this is our baby. In years past another gentleman at San Jacinto College (per our branding initiative I now spell out the college name as opposed to San Jac) took care of the photos and our office put together the actual media guide. Well not anymore, now this is our precious. I’ll post some of the shots at a later date. Usually at this time I would give you a photo I’ve taken but I’m not. Instead here’s a photo that reminds me of my favorite TV show… can you name the show from the photo?

It’s gonna be a boy!

by Kyle Smith

The wife and I went to the docs yesterday and found out we’re having a baby boy!! We’re really excited and can’t wait for him to be here! His name will be Jackson Cole Smith.
The weekend was pretty boring…except when we called the cops b/c some jerk was beating his wife while driving down the road. We followed them to their house and she stayed in the car and he went inside. They didn’t know we were watching, well she did but he didn’t. We kept our distance and had the cops on the phone telling them what was happening.Within minutes two cops pulled up behind the car and brought the guy out of the house. They never asked to speak with us so I really don’t know what happened to the stand-up citizen, hopefully he got what he deserved. Well here’s my photo for the week…enjoy!
