I Like the Smell of Roses

The sub-title for my blog is, "Things That Rise 'Above the Noise' in My Mind". Based on most of my entries to date, you could easily conclude that I think about nothing but business/work. Fortunately, that is not really the case, as evidenced by a few recent entries on parenting (here and here) and education.

One of the other things I spend a lot of time thinking about is sports, and in particular, USC (that is, the University of Southern California; not the University of South Carolina) sports. Although the football season didn't quite turn out the way we had originally hoped (when analysts were saying that this team could be one of the best college football teams of all time), the season ended on a good note this past weekend with USC, once again, winning the Pac-10 championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.

When it comes to football, expectations are very high every year at USC. This is not the case when it comes to basketball so it is a pleasant surprise when the basketball team has a good season, as they did last year. Expectations are a bit higher this year since they have one of the premier freshman in the nation (OJ Mayo). So far, the season has gotten off to a fairly good start but none of this really counts until you get to March Madness.
