Quick Update...

Hey Everyone!

I lived to fight another day. Woohoo!!! Prelims were tonight and the top 12 move on to Thursday for the finals. I was 5th overall with a jump of 21'5 (6.53) but those marks don't carry over to Thursday. Overall it wasn't bad. Lots of nerves on the first jump but once I got it out of the way I felt much better. I can't thank you all enough for the support and prayers and well wishes. I will probably write a legit post tomorrow but right now I am EXHAUSTED!

i'm sitting here in your room at the moment, and you are...oh...say...like five feet away from me. it's silly that i'm typing in here at all. but whatever...the things i do for my best friend ;o) anyway, i guess i ought to tell you (you and your blog reading public) that i am really SO proud of you right now. you looked great out there today. so cool. so collected. you overcame a jittery first jump to prove to yourself it could be done, you beat out like 20 girls with a mark almost a foot below your pr, you made hayward feild gasp in awe as you floated down into the pit, and on top of all that...you looked HOT on the big screen. you are so ready bri. the race is not given to the swift, you know, but to [s]he who endures to the end. lord knows you've endured more than your share...go out there and get your prize!
i love you!!!
p.s. i'm sorry i will wake you up when i leave for the airport in the morning. you can't be mad cuz i warned you in advance. i wish i could be here for thursday, but duty calls, you know? xo

Brianna,
Hey it's Eric, (Devon's fiance') I was cheering for you from work back here in AZ on the USA network this evening. I am very much looking forward to your finals jumps on Thursday. I know this has been a battle for you the past couple of months and I wish you the best in obtaining your goal to get to Beijing.

Even though we're still here we most likely won't call so we'll say GOOD LUCK too! Of course if you need anything you can call me!You even have permission to text me... but ONLY because this is SO BIG, after this week you can't text me again EVER. ;)

Seriously if you need (or want) ANYTHING, don't hesitate!
Love you!!!

Yes Mel and Bianca, you read it right- Marcus and I decided that we couldn't leave so we're staying thru Friday. We scored tix in Section B and we'll be cheering loud enough for all of us!!

What could happen? If my firewalls are on I get kicked off the server during gameplay if I even get in at all. On the Playstation Site they say to enter port numbers but I may have did that wrong so I just take them off completely but only when I play online. Help?

Netflix is finally available on the PS3. After loading your “Instant Streaming Disc” you can watch any videos on your Instant Queue. Keep in mind there is no video browsing. You must add videos to your queue through the PlayStation browser

Look for at $100 cheaper consoles, minor but welcome upgrades, and more pressure on Nintendo and Microsoft in the gaming console market wars.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Today I had fun with this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online sports game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
