2.  WHAT A WEEKEND…..congratulations are going out to our WARNER MONARCHS girls basketball team….they are the SOUTH DAKOTA 2013 STATE CHAMPIONS……and it’s the first time the girls basketball team from WARNER has won first place….it was super exciting……..we’re so proud of our girls….they’re not cocky…they’re not arrogant….they’re not selfish….just all around great girls…..it couldn’t have happened to a better bunch of girls…..here’s a couple of photos of the team….getting ready for the big game,  and celebrating their big win…

our WARNER MONARCHS girls basketball team becomes only the SECOND team in class ‘b’ SOUTH DAKOTA history to win both the volleyball championship and the girls basketball championship in the same year…HURLEY was the other team to do it in 1993…exactly 20 years ago……how cool…….

what a year for WARNER MONARCHS athletics……our football team goes to the state championship for the very first time…..our volleyball team DOESN’T LOSE A MATCH, going 90-0 to win the state championship, and our girls basketball team wins the championship….so proud of this bunch of athletes…..

 

3.  my wife has become a “WALKING DEAD” freak….she not only watches and tapes every show, but she kind of plans her sunday evening around it….and she watches and records the “WALKING DEAD”  live post show after the real show…….well, guess what?  to nobody’s suprise, there are apps out there to turn normal people into ZOMBIES…..here’s a picture my wife made with an app of our son MITCHELL sitting at the table eating…..GROSS……funny, but GROSS….

4.  believe it or not, LAWRENCE WELK would have been 110 today……crazy, huh?  as you may or may not know, LAWRENCE WELK is an area boy….he was born in STRASBURG, NORTH DAKOTA…he, of course, became insanely popular for playing the according and directing the band on “THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW.”  here’s a younger picture of MR. WELK….

6.  i had the distinct pleasure of not only seeing MYRON FLOREN in concert, but also MEETING HIM…he played a school reunion dance in ROSLYN, SOUTH DAKOTA that my beautiful wife and i were back for….that’s right…MYRON FLOREN IN THE ROSLYN HIGH SCHOOL GYM…..it was awesome….and i got to go back in one of the locker rooms and sit and talk to him….let me tell you this…MYRON FLOREN never lost his small town roots….what an incredibly nice man….very kind….very humble….very accomodating…..i was super impressed and will always be glad that i had the chance to meet him…..

 

7.  happy birthday wishes are going out to singer BOBBY MCFERRIN…he turns 63 today….BOBBY is mostly known for one huge monster hit in 1988….remember it?  “DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY.”

8.  the NFL free agency period begins tomorrow…(tuesday)…..because the NFL completely SCREWED my WASHINGTON REDSKINS out of cap money, we won’t have a bunch to spend…i understand that….and, after being much better last year we shouldn’t have to make many changes……

but i have ONE i’m hopin’ and prayin’ for…..

SANTANA MOSS has been great for the REDSKINS, but it’s time to cut him loose and pick up somebody else….and there’s NOBODY i want more than DANNY AMENDOLA….

 

St. Louis Rams 2011 Headshots

 

between injuries, DANNY AMENDOLA was a huge hit for the ST. LOUIS RAMS….great wide receiver….and he’s young and exciting…PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET HIM WIND UP IN A REDSKINS UNIFORM….

 

9.  my heart breaks for a guy named ALEX PERMANN….he was at a MISSOURI VALLEY title game for basketball and was chosen to play for $50,000 dollars at halftime…all he had to do was make a layup, a free throw, a three pointer, and a half court shot all in 24 SECONDS….guess what?  HE DID….

except for one small detail….he was so excited that he forgot to shoot the three pointer…..he made the layup…made the free throw, and ran to half court AND DRAINED IT….he jumped around and screamed because he thought he had won the big jackpot….but he didn’t…..his consolation prize?  lifetime tickets to the tournament, plus V.I.P. crap and other stuff…..a poor second place to $50,000 dollars….

here’s the video…in all fairness you can hear the public address announcer yelling “THREE POINTER  THREE POINTER.”

10.  JOKE OF THE DAY: (one of my all time favorites)

 

An atheist is walking through the woods one day when all of a sudden a huge bear runs out to attack him. The atheist runs as fast as he can but trips over a stump and falls to the ground. As he turns rover the bear is standing on top of him, paws stretched wide ready to maul him.

“Oh God” screams the atheist.

Suddenly time stands still, the bear freezes in the attack position and a voice out of heaven says “Yes, you called?”

“Oh” says the atheist “you really do exist! Can you make this bear go away?”

“Why should I?” says God. “You’ve been denying my existence all your life”

“Fair point” says the atheist. “Ok, how about this. Can you turn the bear into a Christian instead?”

“Ok” says God and time resumes once more. The bear stops in attack, bows his head meekly and says “Dear God. Thank you for this meal that i’m about to receive……”

 

HA…LOVE IT…

HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY MY FRIENDS…

JAY DEAN
