This video was produced by the United States Air Force and Spangdahlem Air Base.

Master Sergeant Joseph Martel recently returned home from deployment and wanted to surprise his son!

Wow! What a beautiful moment on the 50-Yard Line of a football field. His son, practically a grown man himself, broke down in tears and understandably so. This has to be one of the best military surprise return home around.

Master Sergeant Joseph Martel served overseas in Afghanistan with the United States Air Force. Thank you for your service Master Sergeant Martel and thanks for letting us share in your very special moment!

These videos get me every time! If they don’t get you I am not sure we should know each other. I cried instantly once the father took off his helmet. We need to be more mindful when we are complaining about our problems because there is always someone who has it worse. The son lived everyday not knowing if he will get news that his father was killed in Afghanistan protecting our rights while we sit here and complain about our iPhone being slow or our order at Applebees being incorrect.

Take the time this holiday season to think of those that have family members that are deployed and serving our great country! If you are truly moved you can check out Adopt a US Solider to find ways to can support our troops that are deployed.

Gif Tuesday – This Tony Romo INT Turned Me On

Football is a game of inches and Romo came up short (giggity)! When Clay Matthews missed that sacked I was so pissed and when Romo let the ball go and Sam Shields came down with the ball I won’t lie…I yelled in ecstasy. Yup that def happened.

Baby Deba Alert…Could We Have a Christmas Baby?

Wow, feelings like it has been a while since I have written about Hannah. The last time I wrote about her was “Birth Class and Getting Ready” and that was pretty short. I don’t even know where to start to be honest.

No big deal, met TJ Duckett in Indianapolis

No big deal, met TJ Duckett in Indianapolis

We’ll start with how awesome Kate has been the last few weeks. First of all let’s talk about the surprise she gave me last weekend. Knowing that myself and some friends do a football trip each year, she over heard me telling my friends that I was not going to go this year due to Hannah and the chance that I wouldn’t have a job. So of course Kate decided to start scheming and planned for me to go with my friends to Indianapolis for the B1G 10 Championship between Michigan St and Ohio St. She really pushed me to go and I’m glad she did because it was a blast!

Kate has been a trooper when it comes to carrying Hannah. Not only is she working full time as a teacher until she goes into labor, but she is coaching two basketball teams during the week and tutoring on Sunday. This chick is amazing and we (Jacob, Hannah and I) are lucky to have her! Everyone talks about how much their wife, finace or girlfriend’s complained about the pregnancy, but Kate has been amazing. Yeah, I get the “I’m tired” a lot and she goes to bed by like 9:00 pm and once in a while she talks about her back hurting, but it really hasn’t phased me at all! Just try to be supportive and know that I am going to have to get a thick skin for when she goes into labor because I think that is when it is all going to come out!

New Year Baby?

New Year Baby?

So when is Hannah going to get here? Since I found out the due date (Jan 12) I have been saying that December 29 is going to be the date and the information that we got last week, I could be correct! Last week Kate had her weekly check-up and we found out that she is 2 cm dilated, 50% effaced and in the -2 position. The short of the short is that the doctor doesn’t believe she is going the full 40 weeks. Tomorrow Kate has the next weekly check-up so we will find out if she has dilated, effaced or dropped anymore. Again, the way that this kid moves around I still think she is trying to claw her way out. I don’t know if we are going to get a Christmas baby, but I am pretty sure we are going to be celebrating the New Year with Hannah in our arms! I hope this is the case because our entire family is ready to meet her as soon as possible.

With that being said, you are all probably asking…”so are you guys ready?” Well the apartment is about as ready as it is ever going to be and we have all of the things we need so yeah I would say that we are good to go!

P.S. I know that everyone is asking for some belly shots, but I am getting shut down. So you’ll have to settle for baby pictures when she gets here!

Tecmo Super Bowl Recreates Iron Bowl Miracle

Back in the 90s Cebo and I would sit in front of the TV and play Tecmo Super Bowl on Nintendo for hours. We would play entire seasons in a night, ok we never made it through an entire season once. We usually would get to week 10 and then decide that we wanted to be a different team and start over. Sometimes we would even simulate the first five weeks of the season and we would each pick the team with the worse record and try to make the playoffs. I’ll let you in on a secret, while one of us is playing our game the other would be in the corner writing raps, yup that is a true statement!

We’ve been talking about getting Tecmo Super Bowl and having a day of old school Nintendo football playing and drinking of some beer. This video shows why Tecmo Super Bowl is considered one of the best football games in video game history.

Darth Vader Selfie Coming in Hot!

No big deal, Darth Vader just taking out rebels and taking selfies for the Star Wars Instagram. I have to say the dude has some skill, most people that take selfies use the camera turn around function on their phone, but not Darth. He just uses the force and takes a perfect picture.

P.S. If you had the force what would you use it for?

Wake Up Wednesday – Without You by Digital Allies

I loved this song back in my clubbin days, I could dance for hours and hours with or without extra help. Songs like this helped keep it going into the weee hours of the morning. I remember many of mornings driving home when the sun was rising or was already up. Good times! Wake Up everyone! It’s WEDNESDAY!!!!!
