There are some interesting matchups today baby. Lots of stuff out there that I’ve got my eye on. Lots of things that have my interest. Lots of wins for us to seize. And seize them we shall. We are on a quest, a never-ending quest. Much like the Man of La Mancha himself, Don Quixote.


We are on a journey that we must see through no matter the difficulties. In fact, none other than the King himself, said it best in song:

To right the un-rightable wrong
To be better far than you are
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell
For a heavenly cause

Our quest, our star, is the wins we so desire. So let us march forth and pursue them with the passion and drive they deserve.
