I have seen things that most people would never see or would not want to see. I worked in the emergency management system 1992 - 2010 in a variety of positions. My only other job since high school. I spent time in the US Marines from 1986-1992. It was a good six years, because I did travel around the world. Hope to visit Germany again, maybe before I die. Today I am living the life being disabled due to my past careers. My motto is ... Life is too damn short to be taken too damn serious.

Jacksonville are letting me down :/ When I watched them play in London (The only time I could as it was on at a reasonable hour instead of 1am) we had 2 good plays, the opening kick off and the touchdown pass. Other than that, not one player on that field looked remotely interested. I know it's hard when you're 0-8 but show some compassion and play to win. The talent is there, the motivation isn't. Jax was bought by a new owner last year and I think he wants to move the team to a bigger market. The low attendance and lack of interest within their market area will give him support with the NFL to approve the move . I say 'Yay" because they claimed Orlando as their area and bump the Dolphin games on TV. The Jags are on the short list of moving across the pound to Jolly Old England <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/bs.gif" alt="bs">
