Since my last post a few things have happened. First of all the Pirates took down the defending champs today 8-2. A nice start to the spring. Also tomorrow my roommate Jimmy Barthmaier makes his grapefruit league debut. Good luck to him. I threw a pretty good bullpen on Tuesday, and as more people begin to show up at Pirate City, the itch to start playing continues to get stronger.
I can’t bring myself to write an entire new post with out mentioning Tiger Woods. The man has to be an inspiration to athletes everywhere. He is simply unbelievable. He looked like he never missed a day, much less 8 months. Just blew my mind today. Right now Clemson is in the middle of a really good game against Virginia Tech, a real nail biter so far. I also just finished watching this weeks episode of 24, goodness this show is amazing.
Ok enough rambling, on to the real topic of my post. I spent some time thinking about what my next post should be, and then it hit me. Not too long ago we had one of the most prolific things happen to our country. We elected a black president, something that is unreal and groundbreaking. Something that speaks volumes about how far our country has come.
Now I myslef did not vote for President Obama, but I have to say that I am an avid supporter now, and I hope that he does great things for our country. Recently he has proposed a stimulus package. This is something that is a very controversial topic amongst politicians, and is a very volatile situation for our economy. There is alot of uncertainty in our society today, and no doubt are we in a recession. However, where do people see our eceonomy going in the future? Is Barack Obama the answer to our problems? Will the stimulus package do what it is supposed to and bail us out? Is everyone pleased with Obama’s performance thus far?
As always give your input, we have had some great interaction so far, lets keep it up.
