Happy Monday!

Less is more.

Ironically, this sentiment was the perfect fit for a particular consumption-reliant beer company.

Budwesier’s Best Super Bowl Ad:

Did Peyton Manning just inadvertently give the world the first-ever Vine Super Bowl commercial?

The sheer simplicity (and obvious realism) of Manning’s reportedly unsolicited endorsement will stump veteran advertisers who invested millions and millions of dollars into writing, developing, producing and airing creative commercials, aimed at achieving a viral marketing impact.

As Peyton Manning casually revealed, champions (like everybody else) enjoy a good beer after a hard day at the office.

Also, did Manning change post-championship interviews forever? Drinking beer over Disney World?

Mickey Mouse: It’s your turn for a super rebuttal.

Happy Monday!

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”

Having watched my nephew and his soccer team play in (and win!) a tournament this past weekend, fundamental skills were constantly being burnished on the pitch. This ranges from dribbling to passing to shooting to positioning and defending. Occasionally, there’s a special moment, like scoring a beautiful goal that could have been intended as a crossing pass.

Either way, surprises like unexpected goals or goal-line saves leave lasting impressions.

Speaking of which…

Disney may have a new sports movie to write.

How does The Hart of a Champion sound?

Have a Kickin’ Good Week!

Happy Monday!

No matter how old we are, the sky’s the limit (literally).

That’s awesomeness x 100.

Rain, it’s Your Turn

Yesterday, at some point during the afternoon in Columbus, Ohio, there were snow flurries blowing around like its hair was on fire (talk about fire and ice). Snow can be fun and an incredible sight, but not this kind of snow and cold. I had the shades drawn in my office, so it was a genuine shock looking out my co-workers window as I was preparing to leave. “What in the world? I thought Winter was ‘technically’ over?”

Driving home, there was no visibility beyond 15 feet in front of my car. Didn’t Spring kick-off on March 20th? Of course, it is Ohio, so…

Still, the calendar is only days away from flipping into April. This means that instead of relentless snow we shall (surely) now endure relentless rain. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s certainly better than any Polar Vortex!

Occasional rain reminds me of a couple things, which includes singing and splashing around in puddles like a child, as well as…

(Skip to 1:37 for the rain)

Even though it’s usually better to wish for no rain as opposed to rain, it has the potential to bring with it a fun, magical purpose.

It’s like traveling back in time to our childhood when we just went with things as they came about, which can certainly be a good thing every once in a while in between the daily grind.

If nothing else, at least there’s no frost with rain!
