News and Notes (09/17/2011)- Personal

It has been three full months since my first installment of News and Notes (you have to love the name).  Today is a great day to catch my loyal readers up on what has happened in those three months and to state my opinion on vibrant topics from around the world (part 2).  I will start with a few personal notes, considering this is one of the most exciting times of my life:

-The Detroit Tigers are your AL Central champs!  Leyland has his team red-hot and rolling into the post season and I cannot wait until the MLB playoffs.  My personal (biased) opinion is to give Verlander the Cy Young, Papa Grande the Rolaids relief award, and either Miguel Cabrera or Verlander the MVP.
-Staying on the topic of sports, today is the University of Louisville vs. University of Kentucky football game.  I am an avid Cardinals fan but I am also realistic.  I like our chances but I am not going to guarantee anything, this team is young and will have to really show out to walk out of Commonwealth with a W.  I should note that more than a few Kentucky fans have told me they don't think it will be in Kentucky is going to to run away with it.  Well, Vegas disagrees, seeing as they have installed Kentucky as only a 5.5 point home favorite.  When I tell U of K fan this and offer them my bookie's phone number they tend to curb their expectations.  Personally, I will be DVRing the game because I will be throwing back some brews and doing the cupid shuffle at my boy Ian's Wedding.  Congrats Bro.  I am looking forward to it.

-And speaking of weddings....I AM GETTING MARRIED IN TWO WEEKS!

-Months of preparation have culminated in me applying to a few law schools for admittance into the Fall 2012 cycle.  LSAT has been taken, Letters of Recommendation have been sent, transcripts uploaded and personal statement written.  So far I have applied to the law schools of The University of Cincinnati, The University of Kentucky and Valparaiso University.  Thankfully, these three schools all sent me application fee waivers so I saved about $150.  Now calm down Louisville friends, I still plan on applying to my first choice and most likely destination the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law.  For whatever reason they do not accept applications until October 1st, and if you read the title of the blog you would know it is only September 17th.  

What a great time to be alive!  I have so much to look forward too.  I am so blessed to have the friends and family I have, I love you all.
