How many trips do you take?!?! XD

Hey, at least I'm staying in the country this time!! Over the summer I was in France, Germany, and Brazil on different trips. Now I'm off to Boulder, then Tucson in late October. That's my last trip until Paris in February.

That's a lot of places. Are these personal vacations or work related?

All work. That's good and bad. It's a lot of travel. Sometimes I don't get to see that much of the places we go. I was in Rio de Janeiro last month and saw very little of the beach!! I did get some time in Marseille and Munich, though.

You're a hitman, aren't you?

My old roomate travels a ton but only along the east coast. Sounds pretty interesting though. How did you like Brazil?

If I am a hitman, you should be making out your will...

Brazil was not bad. The people were generally nice, and VERY diverse. No such thing as a typical Brazilian look. Rio reminded me quite a bit of Santiago, Chile, but I only saw a very small part of it. The favelas were crazy looking. One could take tours, but I neither had the time nor desire.

Rutgers wins on a last second FG, stealing a victory from Boise St, 24-21. Boise St was driving, getting down to the 29 yard line with under 30 seconds to play. But BSU QB Jay Johnson threw a costly pick with 18 seconds left on the clock, giving Rutgers the ball with 2 timeouts. Backup QB Ronald Franklin dropped back on 1st down, airing out to a wide open Eric Bower for a 57 yard reception, putting them at the Boise St 24 yard line with 10 seconds to go. Running back Dustin Bowen ran for 7 yards, which set up Raymond Dahl's 35 yard FG to win as time expired.

Couple of notes. I got down to the BSU 1 yard line in the 4th quarter. On 2nd down, my QB was knocked out of the ball game (again), and on 4 straight plays, I could not punch it in. BSU RB ran for 211 yards, he broke about 7 tackles during their first drive, which was 4 plays long. Then again, Boise St is definitely better than Rutgers, so I guess that's expected.

I got the "In Your Crosshairs" achievement during the 2nd quarter, posted the interception. All Kush baby, all Kush
