Glory Days? (by Ryan)

Everyone seems to talk about the glory days as high school or college. For me, when I get together with the guys from college (specifically Mike, Mike and Don) we talk about our senior year of college as our glory days. But moving to Michigan recently has made me start to wonder if these days really are my glory days.

So lets examine each time period to help me decide.

Senior year at Greenville College

  1. Kings of the campus (or so we thought)
  2. SLIAC soccer champions
  3. Lots of free time
  4. No real jobs to worry about
  5. Two-week vacation to Hawaii…for school credit
  6. Took a golf class
  7. Golfed 99 holes in one week
  8. Stayed up late and slept in late
  9. Hit the bars with my friends
  10. On Saturday we would watch enough college football that we wouldn’t have time to get dressed until after dinner
  11. Girlfriends provided too much drama

Present Day in Jackson, Michigan

  1. King of the house (or at least so I think)
  2. Jackson Recreation Soccer Champions (after tomorrow’s game)
  3. No free time
  4. A real job, and I leave the house at 6:30 am
  5. What’s Hawaii?
  6. Need golf lessons
  7. Have golfed 9 holes since I have been in Michigan
  8. One day I slept in till 8 am
  9. Bars are too expensive
  10. On Saturday we go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know if we'll have enough time
  11. Wife and kids provide too much drama

So which are my glory days? You can help me decide, vote on it and let me know!

Ok I was able to read it. Uhm I'm cracking up at how short Don looks in that picture!

Oh yeah you wanted a vote... hmm... I definitely go for Michigan. Kids are all the fun you could ever want! When else can you have fun doing all those kid things and not look like a big dork? :)

Dude you're so "Old School"...I'm gonna have to vote for now, but it would be a lot cooler if we were all in the same area...
