Well one night as I was getting a dose of some YouTube and came across a series entitled Chad Vader put out by Blame Society Films from Madison, Wisconsin. It begins with Chad Vader, Darth's brother apparently, in a job as a shift manager in a grocery store. Chad is a spitting image of his bro but occasionally has a few problems with adapting to real life. Currently 7 episodes are available and I think the season finale is in post production as I write. The production is real quality and even includes a few special effects.

Once again I have created a list of ideas to help individuals prayer for Ireland (Republic and North). I solicited input from the readers of Relevant Magazine Online message board and got a few response which I incorperated this year. So here it is:
Irish youth to discover the real life in Christ.
- Grace given to Irish Christians to authentically represent Jesus.
- Peace that will bring healing from wrongs and injustices of the past in the Republic and Northern Ireland.
- Christian workers. Irish men and women to answer the call to service.
- For the Irish to rise up in the Holy Spirit to impact their nation and the world.
Lord's prayer in Irish Gaelic:
Ár n-Athair atá ar neamh,
Go naofar d'ainim,
Go dtagfadh do ríocht,
Go ndéantar do thoil ar an talamh mar a dhéantar ar neamh.
Ár n-arán laethúil tabhair dúinn inniu,agus maith dúinn ár bhfiachamar a mhaithimidne dár bhféichiúna féin
Ach ná lig sinn i gcathú, ach saor sinn ó olc
Legend has it that Patrick went up a hill near Westport, County Mayo and prayed and fasted for 40 days for the island. A joke states that afterward he came down and his beast of burden was missing. Neverthless, join me in praying for Ireland on 17 March.

You bring her to Wal-Mart and lolligag the evening away.
In my visits to the mecca of merchandizing and materialism after 10 PM, I see gaggles of girls and boys plodding through the store together with no particular place to go. In a town still influenced by Blue Laws , there is not much amusement after 10 PM, so why not go the safest 24 hour joint in town.
But Wal-Mart as a date location? Come on now, kids! Even virtual text messaging is probably better than that. And do you think you're going to make out in automotive? No way, there are cameras everywhere and you'll sure to become YouTubed by some enterprising Wal-Mart employee. What basically is lacking is any creativity. Wal-Mart does not equal a great place to spend with a lovely woman. How un-romantic!

My company squad lost handily to a group of Concordia College men and women who appeared to have much more experience than us. To be honest, they were better dribblers and passers although they lacked a bit of creativity in goalscoring. Nevertheless there were positives to this match. Our goaltender impressed me by making some stunning saves albeit he allowed 10 goals. To our credit we did score 2 goals. I played about 3 minutes out of 50 in sort of a mid-fielder stopper position and had an unfortunate ball go through me for a goal.
For a group of mostly 30+ year olds with little to no experience we did well. However, it looks like we will switch leagues to be with competition more fitting to our age levels.
In other intramural leagues, Team Unglaublich took to hardwood for a second time on YouTube. My complete breakdown of the episode is forthcoming, but I can tell you that Team U is 100% better than their premiere outing. I've been planning a video response from Royce Files for weeks but have had nearly no time. I may have time this weekend.
