Today was a very interesting day. After a busy Friday at work, I was pretty beat last night and ended up falling asleep earlier than usual. I then ended up waking up around 3 or 4am feeling like I was ready to start my day. I spent about an hour tweaking Media Center on Lando in preparation for watching the Huskies game and tomorrow's Seahawks game in HD. Once I had finished that, I felt like I should head back to bed, but I ended up getting distracted by my feeds, and before I knew it, I heard my daughter making noise in the nursery.

It was at that point that I realized I probably wasn't going to be going back to bed anytime soon, but I was actually pretty happy to hear my daughter bustling nearby. After a long work week, it's always nice to finally get to spend a full day with my daughter. We went through our usual morning routine, and once she was back in her crib for a nap, I started anxiously counting down the minutes to kickoff.

Come 12:30pm, the the Huskies game finally got underway. Whereas I was expecting to see USC slowly but surely overpower the Huskies and come away with a win, time wore on, the score stayed close, and the Huskies showed the true grit that made them so great in decades past. The end result was one of the greatest wins in the history of the program, and one that I certainly will not forget for a very long time. The Steve Sarkisian era is most certainly upon us.

After the game, though still a bit stunned, I took my wife and daughter to the AT&T store to get my wife a new phone. She ended up getting a Samsung Impression and seems to be pretty pleased with it so far.

Once we returned home, it was time for my daughter to head to bed. Once she was asleep, we ate dinner and watched the second half of the Texas Tech vs. Texas game. That ended up being your typical Big 12 shoot-out, with the only ranked team of the two, Texas, coming out on top.

After that, we had dessert and finally watched this year's MTV Video Music Awards. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but that doesn't mean it was any good either. It came in with a bang (the whole Kanye spiel) and went out with a bang (a killer performance from these two), and otherwise had a whole lot of utter nonsense in between.

Now, as I finish up this post, Saturday has morphed into early Sunday and my bed is calling my name.
