NOTE: WOO-HOO! There’s a bit of frost on the pumpkin this morning!!!
NOTE 2: It’s an EXCELLENT, pre-dawn, soccer morning! I’ve been reliving the new Sporting KC moment from yesterday http://www.mlssoccer.com/news/article/sporting-kc-second-chance-first-impression ; watching the taped presentation from KC http://kctv.neulion.com/mlsvp/console.jsp?catid=960&id=10634 (hopefully this link works). I fully support the change and new look.
Also watched the replay of the International Friendly between the Republic of South Africa and the (fresh!) USA Men’s national team.
USA 1:0 RSA (absolutely impressive!)
AM Prayer: Thursday, we pray to Donar/Thor, and lighting a red candle:
Donar/Thor, thunder forth in our lives. When we would hold back, let us advance. When we would be weak, help us be strong. When we would shun life’s pleasures, sharpen our appetites for that which is lusty and good. Help us grow from strength, and teach us, elder brother, how to throw our own Hammer, and slay the giants who appose our will. HAIL DONAR/THOR!!

Lazy morning after all this soccer activity
Fixed a cabinet shelf
Trip to bank
I don’t know why I’m so obsessed about the change from the MLS team theKansas City Wizards to Sporting KC. It really seems like some kind of rebirth. It’s like I said in one of my comments on somebody’s page: The Wizards have played in Arrowhead and the CAB; always somebody’s stepchild. With their soon to be completed soccer-specific stadium a new team image was practically a must. The transition from the Wizards to Sporting while at first seemed like trouble, it certainly didn’t take ME long to warm up to the idea as well as understand the why of the need for this. The crest reads something to the effect of Sporting Kansas City SC. THEY say the SC stands for Sporting Club but it’s easy to see it also standing for Soccer Club; which also brought something else to mind. As much as we serious fans of the Beautiful Game would LOVE to call it football, we need to realize that calling the Beautiful Game football here in the US will never fly because American football is too prevalent. There’s nothing wrong with calling the Beautiful Game locally as soccer; however, once we get onto the World’s stage, oh yeah, THEN it’s football! Locally…soccer…World stage…football…nothing wrong with that! Now THAT’S the confidence of Sowulo!
Yep, I was contacted this evening…time to be utilize my Godi position…Sowulo is SCREAMING!
I think Audie and a pretty successful birthday:
Ultra soft jammies
Four chocolate bars
Tiny-sized cup cakes
Chocolate ice cream w/cake cones
Birthday balloon w/ card

$50 gift certificate to PF Chang’s from same
My sister came over with a card
Her sister in Washington State sent flowers
Yeah, you’re right…she doesn’t deserve me! LOL
PM Prayer: Wuldar/Ullr:
Wuldar/Ullr, god of ski and bow, you glide through the snow-clad forests bringing death to game and life to your people. Remind us that life feeds on life, and that the beauty of the prey is formed generation after generation by the culling ferocity of the predator. Let your Yew-bow be the great World-Yew under another guise, so that through the spirit of the hunter, we may climb its branched to ever higher levels of awareness. HAIL WULDAR/ULLR!!
PM Rune: none
