Murfreesboro Reds

I’ve not posted a whole lot on the site lately and that’s for several reasons.

One reason is T-Ball. Never in a million years would I have imagined I would enjoy coaching T-Ball (asst. coaching) as much as I do. I was thrown into it in the Spring when Jill volunteered me at Carter’s first practice.

I’ve never been a big sports guy. Imagine that. A web developer/comic geek/pop culture geek not being into sports. Cliche much? Anyway…

I managed to take it in stride and appreciated her encouragement that she wanted someone out there to help the kids that would push them to have fun and encourage them. The first season in the Spring was so much fun that two of the other Dads and I decided to keep our kids together and coach a team this Fall.

Fall T-Ball is busy. Two games a week and none on the weekends makes for long days, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Not only is Carter doing great, but we’ve got a great team. Every kid has improved over the course of the season. It’s amazing. I’ll be sad when we play our last game next week.

I’ll be anxiously awaiting the Spring season in 2009 and hope that we can keep as many of these kids together as we can.

The telegraph.co.uk site has a great article on doctored photos on their site featuring 20 great examples.

I remember doing a presentation on this topic in college. The research was incredibly hard. This was before Google, so most references I used were found after hours and hours of searching. The presentation was for a Journalism Ethics class and featured examples of altered news photos and discussed the impact they could have on the media.

I was pretty proud of the results. Wish I could find a copy of it somewhere. It’s one of the few things I did in college that I’ve not run across since graduating.
