How does it feel to miss a Football Game?

Americans love football. For the longest time, the weekend schedules of the professional league was perfect. The family sat together, enjoy the game and bond. But from 2006, the NFL has started to schedule games on Thursdays and Saturday nights after the college regular season. For the working Dad's like me, don't you just hate the feeling of missing your favorite game when it's scheduled on a week day?

Good thing there is the
nfl sunday ticket
. You never have to miss a single game every season. You can select which nfl sunday ticket price you like, whether for just one game or for the whole season. Many would attest that its worth every penny.

Here's more. Did you know that with the nfl sunday ticket schedule you can watch 8 games at once all at the same time. Now, how is that for an overload?

Satisfying the Need for Speed

Road Test

My sister was on her second year of learning how to drive. One time she got the chance to drive along the North Luzon Express Way (NLEX) from Manila to Pampanga. She drove fast with an average speed of 100KPH. It was quite an experience for her which let out her need for speed.

I wonder what her experience would be like if she drove the luxury cars along those hi-ways. She would have loved it, I guess.

Just imagine if you had a chance to drive a Volvo or a Toyota Highlander, which do you think will give you a better ride? They both look so cool and sleek to me. I wouldn’t miss it if I get that chance.

Actually, I will always envy those who test drive and rate these luxury cars. They get to drive the high end cars and get to give their professional comments and all. They are beneficial for prospective buyers; slack jawed for us who can only dream about it (at least for the moment).

For me, my dream car to drive would be a Ferrari. Just looking at that car and you can almost already feel the speed. It has such a raw power! Like the 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano. It has a 611HP with a 48 valve 6.0 liter V-12 engine. Cruising the whole 88Km of the NLEX would be breeze. My sister would definitely drool about it.

On the other hand, while there is this desire for speed, automobile companies have started to realize the importance of having cleaner emissions. They have started going GREEN so to speak and are already making hybrid cars. Like what General Motors did with one model of the Saturn Vue. Too bad they plan to drop the Green line badge.

Sometimes it’s a tough decision to make, choosing between speed and power over slower cars with greener emissions. But who knows, these companies would someday come out with a model that can satisfy both. Just keep reading those reviews.

Weekend Snapshot: Dusk

Dusk @ Jack&Jill's

Last weekend, while driving back to Quezon City coming from Pasig City, my wife and I were awed by the scenic afternoon sky. I just had to park the car and take the snapshot.

Using an exposure time of 1/40 and an aperture setting of f/5.0 at ISO100, There was very minimal processing left to be done with the picture. I just had to resize it and put the usual borders and watermarks.

Have a great week ahead!

The King Knight


While looking for my son's rubber shoes, we found one of his favorite toys three(3) years ago. It is a magnetic knight with movable parts. It is fun to play with. That is one thing commendable about the toys today, they are very detailed and realistic.

Seeing the opportunity, I immediately took the latest issue of our company magazine and positioned the knight in front of it. Then viola! Instant background.
