ncaa hoopla results

Well, the Florida Gators repeats as national champions in men’s college basketball.  Several weeks ago, I put up a last minute NCAA Men’s Tournament Bracket and 22 folks signed up – from within Quest, Seattle, couple around the country, and 1 blog subscriber (& missionary) from Russia.  Who won?  You might be surprised…a dietician at Quest named Sandra E.  That’s right.  There were easily over 1.7 million participants in this Yahoo Tournament League and she placed in 118th place!

Here’s the top 5 in this league of 22 participants:

1 Sandra’s                         179 53 of 63          99th        118
2 California Golden Bears  158 44 of 63          97th        41976
3 Go Fighting Illini!             145 48 of 63         93rd        120564
4 PAC-10 Rules!                 121 48 of 63         79th        405962
5 Shouldn’t u be working? 103 44 of 63         64th        715658

Much kudos to Sandra – maybe (?) with a little assistance from her husband,  Brian Ehrhart who placed 10th in the league.  This is pretty amazing.  She finished in the 99th percentile – in 118th place!  Congratulations!  You get bragging rights and a cup of free coffee & a bag of great coffee beans from Q Cafe.  FWIW,  I finished a respectable 7th in the league but only in the 61st percentile – in 769,199th place.

    And for the record – I had little to do with it. :)

    Ohio State getting shut out of two national championships proves to me that God is real, and that He loves me dearly. :)

One Day’s Wages

17.5 Year Anniversary!
We still got it. We look gooooood!

Blessed to be back in Princeton, NJ for couple days recently. We had our wedding ceremony in Korea but got "legally" married in the US at Miller Chapel in Princeton Seminary. So, it was only fitting to go back and have my kids take our 17.5 Anniversary  pics. Someday when our kids become adults and they feel like their parents wronged them or neglected them, and they feel like they need to get counseling... I'm going to show them this picture and say, "I HAVE PROOF. WE TOOK YOU TO NYC AND BOUGHT TICKETS TO WICKED ON BROADWAY!" RIP Robin Williams. 
Folks: Please go and - call or hug your loved ones. Tell them you love them. Remind them how you much appreciate them.

We need to (re)learn how to be more human. Don't avoid eye contact. Don't hide behind gadgets. Smile often - both to neighbors and strangers alike. Ask about peoples' stories. And listen.

And most importantly, remind yourself that YOU are loved. Not just merely by your loved ones but also by the ONE who created all that is good and beautiful. Dang. The bright lights of NYC. 
Having been a youth pastor in Flushing between 1992-1994, I really miss this place.

Empire State of Mind. Smitten my NYC. There's no place like this city in the world. The Statue of Liberty. "Give me your tired, your poor..."
