If I were a hero... says I'd be him. I can live with that. Who would you be? Who would you say I'd be?

Top Ten worst chinese fortune cookie sayings

I figured I need a new list so the other day Jamey and I and Avery ate at the Chinese buffet, which is very good and it got me to thinking of a new list. This is my top ten worst fortunes you could pull out of the cookie.

10. You are not allegic to dogs, because you just had some.

9. Your lucky numbers...666

8. Hope you don't like your house, or you really like fire.

7. Your car needs a new transmission and tires...and brakes

6. I see McDonald's in your future career...

5. You are as deep as a frisbee.

4. Enjoy how you look now, because that's as good as it's going to get.

3. Your boss like to dress up in women's clothes in your office when you're not there.

2. Your stomach did not agree with the sushi you just ate.

1. You will leave a large tip for your server.

Anyone have any others? The ones we get now just have wierd chinese proverbs. Where's the fun in that?

I have been addicted to the show 24, since about three seasons ago. Jack Bauer is the man. This season started with a bang, and had some very good moments. It was not as strong a year as last season, but still ranks as some of the best TV you can watch.

The ending though may have been the worst in 24 history. It may have been one of the worst in many show's history. Jack just staring off with not any clue as to what is going to happen next season was terrible. Don't get me wrong I am sure I'll still watch next season, but I hope it has a better wrap up than this season.

On a side note, I may be one of the few who think American Idol got it right. I am pulling for Blake, but think Jordin takes it Wednesday.
Till next year Jack...

Idol shocker!!!

American Idol delivered a shock last night when Melinda Dolittle was voted out of the show. My personal favorite is Blake and I also enjoy Jordin, but it had to be a shock that the shows "favorite" is not going to sing in the final show. What does everyone think of this???

The Simpson's

One of my favorite shows (not just because of the name...haha), because it has so much in it. There are times when it makes fun of religion, but often it is to prove a point. There are other times the show has stupid humor, but all seem to point out what is wrong. Michael Felker did a great story on why he likes the show: He does a great job detailing why he likes the show and the good parts about it.


Most of you who read my blog know Jamey and I both coach at Alabama Christian Academy in Montgomery. Our track season was special to both of us this year because of the kids and how well we did. Our girls won the sectional meet an placed 4th at state and our boys placed second at the sectional meet.

What makes it even more special is what they gave us after the junior high and high school banquets. Normally the kids go in and get the coach a gift ($50 to some resteraunt) that is very nice. Here is what our kids got us:

$520 in gift cards that can be used on anything
$55 to Applebee's
$50 to Bonefish Grill
$20 to the Rave

Total that up: More than we would have ever expected. I have never even heard of anything like this much less experienced it.

Even without the gifts we loved the season, but it is neat that when Jamey and I are wanting to be able to afford to go out to eat for a date and are looking into planning a family vacation we will be able to go now!!! Thanks ACA families you have touched our lives this year and made us realize this is where we belong.

Life in pictures

Thanks to Jason Bybee I have decided to try the "my life in pictures". I just typed in the answers in the image part of google and picked the first one (on almost all of them).
Where was I born: Florida
Where do I claim as home: Melbourne, FL

Where do I live now: Montgomery, AL. Although I still haven't seen the capital building yet.

What is my name: Kenny Simpson. At least now I know I am not the ugliest Kenny Simpson in the world...

My Grandmother: I would hope she was supposed to be the one on the left.

Favorite Food: Pizza. But not this kind, I only like meat on my pizzas.

Favorite Drink: If you look close it is the "Cherry/Vanilla Dr. Pepper". I prefer it as a fountain drink from Sonic.

Favorite Smell: Google thinks I enjoy the smell of wet dog. I really put Avery's hair after a bath. But I guess the smells are close ?!?!

Favorite Song: "I will be here" by Steven Curtis Chapman. I guess he changed his CD cover to "I don't want to be here". I looks like Bill Cosby with a beard trying to be a thug.

Place I have lived: Tucson, AZ. The spider problem was just too much for me so I left.

Where do I work: Alabama Christian Academy. It looks like we have bad weather in the future.

Where would I like to visit: Alaska. Although I'd prefer a cruise ship and not a cannoe.

NFL Preview: AFC West

The last of the AFC in this section of my picks for the NFL next year.

1) 12-4: Chargers: I think they can even have a better record than that if they catch a few breaks. They are a team that I feel will challenge for the Super Bowl next season. Rivers and Tomlinson are dominate as is the defense.

2) 9-7: Denver: I feel they will struggle a little under Cutler this season. They do not have as many threats on the outside on offense, but will continue to be able to run the ball as well as anyone in the league.

3) 5-11: Kansas City: They have too many holes to challenge in this division. Assuming they lose Green, they will struggle (especially if they allow Brodie Croyle a chance at QB). Their defense will improve, but not enough this year.

4) 3-13: Oakland: Jamarcus Russell in my opinion will be a bust. I don't see them getting better on defense either.

You-tube, Myspace

Check out this story:,2933,272014,00.html. What do you think? I am not sure I understand the reasoning behind it, and it makes me worry if there could be some other type of ban in the future.

It also makes me wonder if anyone is censoring these sites. I was able to watch the hanging of Sadame Hussein on you-tube, which was very disturbing. Are there somethings that should be taken off the web? Is there anyway to monitor it?

Update on life of the Simpson's

Well I can almost relax. Our football game went well, we won the JV game 7-0 and lost the Varsity 14-7. We fumbled twice inside the 5 yard-line, the last with 40 seconds left in a close game against a 6A school in Tuscaloosa. I was happy with the defense. We allowed 2 scores, but also forced 3 turnovers and held our own against a team with two division 1 prospects.

The next day we had our track party. I am sure Jamey will post on this later with pictures of Avery jumping into the pool. She even liked the divingboard at the Young's house.

Mother's Day went well for the most part. Avery gave her mother her gift in the morning and we went out for lunch to celebrate. We wanted Olive Garden, but there was a 40 minute wait, so we chose Shoney's. I think Jamey enjoyed it and I promised to take her to Olive Garden some night later on, so if anyone wants to babysit...
I called my mom, but couldn't get her on the phone, so "mom happy mother's day" if you didn't get my message.

We should be able to slow down a little now. The past three weekends I have been to Mobile, Gulf Shores, and Tuscaloosa with coaching, I am ready to have date night with my girls this friday and Avery's birthday party this weekend.

NFL Preview: AFC South

This may be the easiest division to pick:

1) 13-3: Indianapolis: They will continue to dominate teams, because they have the best offense, and a defense that can play at times. They are my pick to go deep into the playoffs out of this division.

2) 10-6: Jacksonville: They are hard to pick because they win so ugly. Yet, they win and that's all that matters. I think the offense will be better this year and their defense is one of the top in the league.

3) 6-10: Houston: I think they will shock some people this season, but overall they are not even close to challenging to win the division. The passing of Reggie Bush I think causes them to have to wait even longer for their first playoff season.

4) 5-11: Tennessee: I love Vince Young. The problem is their is no one around him this season. Losing Pacman will hurt alot more than they care to admit and I don't think their defense is good at all.

This site is only for those who love their children alot...

...only go here if you're sure you love them...

Do you love you're kids??

Happy Mother's Day (Early)

Happy Mother's Day to two of my special women (Avery is number three).

I would have been lost without Jamey these past years. She is the heart of our family of 3, soon to be 4. Having a wife that takes on so much is a great blessing for me. Not only that, but she is hot!!!
While she a great wife, she also has the best instincts of as a mother for our little one. Avery is lucky to have a mother like you.

I could not have asked for a better person to get to spend the rest of my life with. I know that the years we, Lord willing, have left will be a blessing to me and I thank God every day that you allowed me to con you into marriage to someone like me.

Happy mother's day to my mom. If not for you I don't know who I would have become today. Your gentle (and at times firm) hands raised me to know what I should and shouldn't do and be able to stand for what is right. Raising 5 kids is not an easy task and you do it with grace. I love you.

NFL Preview: AFC North

This division is one of the harder ones to predict. I think the Steelers will rebound, but they lost their coach. Baltimore should be good, but they lost an all-pro linebacker. The Bengals should be good, but they stunk last year. The Browns may have had the best draft this season.

1) 11-5: Baltimore: I think they lose a little on defense, but McNair will keep them in many games this season. They can make some noise in the post season as well.

2) 11-5: Bengals: They will rebound from a poor season last year. With the best QB in the division they will be in every game.

3) 9-7: Pittsburg: They will do well, but without Cower they will go through a little adjustment period.

4) 6-10: Browns: With a rookie at QB late in the year they will be a dangerous team, just not for a few years.

NFL Preview: AFC East

I have been ready for football to start now since around the middle of March. I am hoping to do a complete breakdown of the NFL and my picks to make it all the way. If anything the NFL is known for a few surprises, and I have a few among my picks. Here is the AFC East:

1) 12-4: NY Jets. Surprise number 1 on the list. I feel the Jets made just enough moves to get better and keep the chemistry they have built. I think they are not ready to challenge to win the super bowl just yet, but will win more games than most give them credit for.

2) 11-5: New England Patriots. I have them struggling for chemistry, but think they will gel enough to be a force in the playoffs. Had they not taken Randy Moss, I think they would actually do better. Brady is the best QB in this division and the defense will get even stronger.

3) 7-9: Buffalo. They are not a good team, but do have people that can beat you in the skill positions. I feel their defense will take a big hit, losing both starting inside linebackers, but should still be solid enough to win some games.

4) 4-12: Miami. I was one of the many to be upset with Miami's picks in the draft. That aside, I don't think we signed anyone on defense other than Porter that will be an impact. Our DB's are terrible, and in a division with so many good recievers that spells trouble. I think Green will do well at QB, but see Miami inserting Beck later in the year.

4th in state

Our girls track team placed 4th at the state meet. We were hoping for top 5. The great news is we had no seniors. Jamey is quite the coach.

Now I can focus on us playing a 6A school in football Friday night...
