I had somebody ask me yesterday, who this Chargers team is? That is a loaded question. I'm still not sure yet. That was a nice win yesterday. In the past, the Chargers would have just shown up and expected to win. This time, they came out and took the win. The Jaguars are not a good team. But it's the NFL and anybody can be beat anybody at anytime. So you can't sleep on anyone. But good teams beat the teams they are supposed to. I'm not saying the Chargers are a good team yet, but they have a winning record going into the bye week and have beaten the Colts and Cowboys. Two pretty good football teams. If they wouldn't have laid an egg against the Raiders, I think we would be feeling really good right now. Work in progress.
How about those UFC fights on Saturday night? Awesome! The Diego Sanchez-Gilbert Melendez fight was insane. Joe Rogan called it the best fight he has ever seen. I won't go that far. I don't even think it was the best fight in the past two months. That goes to Jon Jones and Alex Gustafsson. But it was the wildest fight I might have ever seen. Those guys threw down. And Diego is nuts. The more you beat on him, the crazier he gets. I love it. It was a big night for Mexican fighters as Cain Velasquez defended his heavyweight title. I really like Junior Dos Santos. I think he is just a cool guy. I hate seeing his face so beat up. He is a warrior too. Great fights from top to bottom!
We had a busy Halloween weekend. Went to Taylor's Halloween carnival at her school on Friday. She wore her Boo costume from Monsters Inc. People loved it. Debra was so happy she got to make desserts for the cake walk. This is what she was born to do. She made a cake, cupcakes and brownies. They were a big hit. I had never seen a cake walk before. We didn't have them at my school. It is basically musical chairs with cake. Taylor won and was elated. It was a lot of fun. Then Saturday we took the kids to the pumpkin patch at Parkway Plaza. They have rides and stuff too. We have taken them the past few years. Jack picked out the pumpkin he wanted. Something his own size...
