Plugging Away

Life has its ups and downs. You would expect that when life throws you lemons you could whip up some fancy lemonade but it’s not always so easy especially in this current economy that we are all forced to endure. I have noticed that just because one has the tools and knowledge to do something doesn’t mean much in many industries. So I vow to myself to make an impression and maintain my reputation so that I can posses a solid network of people who may one day be able to connect me to that perfect job or opportunity. Being a recent college graduate, I was told that times would be tough and that the loan repayment process is the worse but you never truly understand until you are face to face with time catching up with you and the realization that the time has come to grow up.

Thank God for sports and the NFL. This past Sunday, October 16, 2011, my Pittsburgh Steelers played the Jags.  Despite Mendenhall’s recent hamstring injury he showed absolutely no impairment to his performance against the Jags during the week six game.  His athleticism was demonstrated by his 8 yard Touchdown and the 146 rushing yards which is a season high for this impressive running back. In the 2nd quarter Wallace had a 28 yard Touchdown. And in the 3rd quarter, Hill scored the Jags 1st TD and the refs broke up a little scuffle between Jones and Woodley. Polamalu was removed from the game after a potential concussion resulting hit in the 4th quarter. However, this amazing safety was just cleared and will be playing in the Arizona Cardinals game next Sunday. Pittsburgh was able to score three times in the first half. They were unable to put any numbers on the board in the second half of the game. Luckily for the Steelers the Jags didn’t score more than 10 points in the second half and the Steelers ended the game 17-13.
Woo hoo to the Pittsburgh Steelers win.  The Steelers are now 4-2 but this second half meltdown is far from reassuring and demonstrates the Steelers inconsistent performance. I hope that Tomlin and Lebeau have some plans up their sleeves for the next few games so that the Defense can continue to make stops and the Offense can dominate the running game to blow out the Cardinals and the Pats. But for now I continue plugging away at this job application process and the Steelers are plugging away towards the playoffs.
