Normally, the Top 5 is a list of pop culture things that I want to rank. For this installment, I decided to list the things that have piqued my interest over the past week or so. That's not to say that there aren't any pop culture items on the list, but they're not all pop culture related. So here are the Top 5 things that are on my buzz radar.
5. Spiderman: Web of Shadows
I'm not much of a video game player. I used to be, but I just kind of lost interest in them. Maybe that means I'm growing up. When I saw the trailer for this game though, I was ready to be a kid again. I love Super-Heroes and comic books and the trailer for this game got my inner fanboy going. It has both Venom and Wolverine! How much cooler can you get! Check out the video and you can judge for yourself.
4. Denver Broncos Football
Okay, I know they aren't playing very well right now. I know, they've lost 3 out of the last 4 games. I know, that they have a slew of players that are out because of injury. I know, their defense can't stop the run or pass. I know, they've turned the ball over 12 times in their three losses. But I'm no fair weather fan. I love this team. I think that they can pull out of this rut they're in. With the bye week coming up, it time to heal up and recommit to being a good team. When healthy, the Broncos offense is hard to stop and is able to score almost willingly. They lead the AFC West by a game over the Chargers. There is still time to turn their recent poor performances around. I look forward to being there to watch them.
3. Nick-N-Willy's Pizza
Last week my roommate came home with a pizza from Nick-N-Willy's. He was kind enough to let me have a slice. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't the absolute best pizza I've ever had, but it was good. Good enough for me to plan to order it for Monday Night Football. The nice thing is that the restaurant is close to my house so I can just stop by on my way home from work. That makes it even better.
2. Fort Collins Run For The Wolves
Yes, I'm running in yet another 5k. Mostly because I was not satisfied with my time for the CSU Homecoming race. I know I can run 5 kilometers in less than 30 minutes. Signing up for the race gives me an chance to prove it to myself. I've also heard that it's a really fun race. There is a costume contest for people and dogs, and trick or treat stations for the kids. Those types of activities definitely make running a race more fun. I wonder how many people will be there. I don't think there will be 1600, like there were at the CSU Homecoming race, but I'm sure there will be a good turn out. My friend Rachel said she was going to run it too, so I think I'll just try to keep pace with her. Hopefully the weather will be nice. I'm not a fan of running in the rain. The forecast for Saturday is supposed to be sunny with a high of 65 degrees. I hope the weather man know what he's talking about.
1. Elder David Bednar
Elder David Bednar, and apostle of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, is coming to the Fort Collins area this weekend. He is coming to speak to the young single adults as well as a conference for the Fort Collins stake. As young single adults, we have the opportunity to listen to an apostle and hear his counsel for us. I'm really excited to be able to attend. I had the opportunity to meet Elder Bednar while he was president of BYU-Idaho. My family home evening group was invited to have family home evening with both he and his wife. It was one of the coolest meetings I've been too. I'm sure the meeting coming up this weekend will be even better.
