Huff and Puff on the Bluff!!

The 9th annual Huff and Puff on the Bluff race will happen this Saturday. Over the years the race has been synonymous with bad weather. The past two years we have had rain during the race and three years ago snow postponed the race until June where runners met higher than usual temps. What will this year have in store for us? Who know but rest assure myself and the faithful will still line up at Sheffield Jr. High School  at 9.00 am for the start of the race. I hope to see a lot of you there. Either as racers or spectators cheering us on our 15K (9.3 mile) quest. And remember there is still time to register if you are interested http://www.huffnpuff15k.com/. Hope to see you there!

New book on the city of florence

Looks like Debra Glass and Larry Fisher have produced an excellent book on the city of Florence. In fact they also have a Facebook page devoted to it http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/pages/Remembering-Florence/132926906761700.  This book is a great source to anyone interested in our area. I wish that more books would come out like Remembering Tuscumbia, Remembering Sheffield or even Remembering Muscle Shoals. Just a little hint to anyone interested.

Deshler Tigers 1990 State Champs!

Hello my beloved Geddonites! Just got word that my old football team will be honored at this years homecoming game! I was a member of the 1990 Deshler Tigers! We went 15-0 that year and defeated T.R. Miller in an exciting state final that went down in the history books as one of the greatest championship games ever! We won in overtime 28 to 27 when the kicker for T.R. Miller missed the extra point that would have tied the game.
  So if you were a member of the team or if you know a member of the team then get the word out. We need as many of the guys there to be honored.
  The homecoming game will be held Oct. 15th. and we will meet at the field house at 6: 30pm. Then we will proceed to the field where will be honored. Also the captains of the team will go out with today`s captains for the coin toss.
  It has been 20 years since our team has been together and I hope everyone can make it. See you there!

When you are laid to rest

I know this is a subject many do not want to think about. Many of you are saying to yourselves it`s too early to think about my own demise. Why I`m not even 50 yet. But after visiting a friend who had passed on it reminds one of their life and what they will leave behind. Now you might be thinking "What do you mean leave behind"?. Well when I walked around the room there were many pictures of my friend. There were pictures of him in his High School days. Some of his military career. And then there were pictures of him and his family. Then I thought to myself what pictures are there of me out there?  Suddenly my mind raced to every picture I have ruined by making a face or generally acted like a goof. I thought is this how I would want people to remember me? As this guy who couldn`t make a serious effort to take a good picture. But then I thought Wait a moment. When the inevitable comes and I pass on what will people want to see. A bunch of pictures of a nice smiling Geddon with a fake smile trying to take a nice picture. Or would they want to see the real me. The me they remembered. The Geddon who snarled his lip whenever a camera was ponted at him. The one of me  pointing at the camera and make a goofy smile. After thinking about it  I believe  my friends and family would want to remember the real me. The big goofy lug who just wanted to make people laugh and smile.

Favorite villain / douchebag actors.

Now I`m not saying that these actors are villains / douchebags in real life just that they play excellent V/D roles. Here is my list of my favorite V/D actors

1.  Dabney Coleman Dabney has played football executives,CEOs,and spies with a zeal for villainy most men do not cherish. Only Dabney can play these roles and make you actually like him. Kudos to Mr. Coleman!

 2.  William Atherton William has play DBs in numerous of roles. Notably his portrayal of a sleazy news anchor in the Die Hard series and  my personal favorite Prof. Jerry Hathaway from the cult classic Real Genius.

 3. Alan Rickman. Alan Rickman has played a evil Landowner and Aborigine killer in Quigly Down Under to the Sheriff of Nottingham with such evil glee that it is impossible to root against him. Although his character in the Harry Potter movies ends up being a hero his take on Prof. Snape is evilly delightful.

 4. Joe Pesci.  Mainly known for his portrayal of psychopathic mobsters he has portrayed them with a sense of humor. It`s hard to hate a guy who just shot a guy in the head and comes up with a witty one liner.

 5.Gene Hackman.  Although he isn`t known for playing villains he has set the watermark for scheming cowardly villains everywhere for his portrayal of Lex Luthor in Superman. He set the standard for slimey villains that is still copied today.Especially with Kevin Spacey`s reprising the role in 2006`s Superman.

Well folks that`s my top five.If you have any you would like to add to my list then drop me a line in the comment section. I love hearing from you guys but I only ask one thing. Please respond in English and not Chinese.
