Happy Friday Cougs, and as usual we hope all is well in your world as we ride into another weekend. Don't know about you but this week just flippin' FLEW by for yours truly! I cannot believe it's already Friday. Work is busy so that certainly has a lot to do with it, but wow does time fly by sometimes.
How about this year's schedule poster? I loved last year's, but I think this year they really hit a home run with the 2013 version. Mike Leach in the center, surrounded by players, with Martin Stadium rising in the background with a lush green football field-like color featured throughout. Very cool! And you know, the other night my wife and I were going through the calendar for this summer, and I realized something - that season opener on August 31st is going to get here fast! That's like what, 84 days away, something like that? Crazy.
So I think the "Morning Drip" has seen the end of it's (very) short-lived run. The name was, well, not great. But while we are happy to take suggestions, I have to admit I'm warming up to "Rise and Grind". There are many different ways one can take Rise and Grind, but here are some definitions per UrbanDictionary.com:
1 - An Attitude, when first waking, to hit everything in your life, from your Training to your job, to the relationships and bonds formed with other people, with a relentless and progressive force; to always keep pushing towards success, and continual progress, through both happiness and hardship, with strength of character and unyielding resolve.
2 - In Life as defined by physics, a form of movement, in all things, that is of a constant, progressive state, that begins the moment one wakes and never ceases, even through rest.
J: "Rise and Grind
, a Great day lies before us, time to push it to the limit"
K: "With the Olympics so close, it's time to Rise and Grind
and begin another amazing day in pursuit of Gold!"
You get the idea. There is another definition for it that isn't exactly safe for work/family friendly, but I love the idea of just getting up and after it. It kind of fits what I do every weekday morning, where I am up at 5 AM and write, then roll into a morning workout to get things going before the workday at 8 AM. You rise, and you grind, period. So we'll roll with this for a while and see if it sticks.
