Kurt Warner & Arizona Cardinals Come to Terms

NFL Divisional PlayoffsWell its about damn time!  Today the Arizona Cardinals and Kurt Warner agreed to a $23 million 2 year deal with $19 million in guaranteed cash to Kurt.  He gets $15 million up front and $4 million base salary for 2009/2010 seasons.

ESPN Article: Warner, Cardinals Agree

All week long I have been biting my nails and screaming that the Cardinals just pay the man – the old man was definitely a large piece of the catalyst that got the Arizona Cardinals to the #2 spot for the 2008 season (although I would have preferred #1, #2 sits just fine with me).

Now on to other issues – Anquan Boldin and Edgerrin James.  I am still on the fence about Anquan, he’s a great player, but he’s no Larry Fitzgerald.  He does bring a certain David Boston’esque feel to the receiver line up tho with as big and as physical as he is, and having a big dude on the squad that can catch a ball and lead the league in TD’s while he was out for 3 games…ummm…the Cards better re-sign his ass!

Edgerrin…bye bye.  Yeah, you pulled some great stats out of your ass in the playoffs, but give me a break – we had to pull a McNabb on your ass to get you there.  See ya…I’ll take Hightower and Arrington over your ass any day of the week.

Exciting times right now…now only if we could trade Lienart to Detroit for that #1 pick in the draft???  Stafford > Lienart!

New House…New Job…

First off – FINALLY got moved in to the new #TukeeDevHouse – it’s sooo much nicer than the last house.  Pretty much still living in and out of boxes, but I’m hoping that situation will be resolved soon…really just boils down to “just fucking do it”.  We’ll be having a house-warming party soon…let us get through the boxes and getting everything sorted out first!

On to the next topic – new job.  It was a hard decision to come to, but I finally decided that it was probably time to get a “normal job” with a steady paycheck.  Its not only good for bills and so forth, but its good for Dom & Lexi to not have me so stressed out all the time when I’m worrying about when I’m getting paid next.

I went on a few interviews, but ended up accepting a position as a web developer at 944 Media in Scottsdale.  I actually interviewed with 944 on the Monday after I moved in to the new place, got an offer on Tuesday, and started on Wednesday.  944 Media produces several magazines and 944.com and I get to work on a mix of all of it by working on the intranet that basically contains all the functionality needed to run 944 Media.  I also couldn’t of picked a better time to come on – the NBA All-Star weekend is happening this week and 944 is hosting all the big parties.  If you want to get in on all the cool All-Star parties that 944 is putting on, you can find information about them and purchase tickets over on their 944.com/AllStar site.

I’m still planning on maintaining DateDesigner.com in my off time…so don’t worry…updates and progress will still be made on that site as I am continuing to build traffic & content that will only make it more valuable when Match.com or eHarmony.com offer to buy it from me! HAHAHA

So that’s basically it…new house…new job…good stuff…back to work!

Arizona Cardinals – Divisional Champs…off to the NFC Championship!

I have waited 20 years for this:

Arizona Cardinals - AZ Central Sports Page

I remember the first home game I went to with my Dad – it was against the Tampa Bay Bucs when they were still sporting the ugly orange uniforms.  I also got my first Cardinals hat that day when they were the Phoenix Cardinals.

Last night the Arizona Cardinals upset the Carolina Panthers 33-13 in Charlotte – a sureal experience for sure!  I’ve been a fan through the good, the bad, and the Denny Green/Joe Bugel/Buddy Ryan days…you know…the fuckin’ horrible days.  I’ve said “there’s always next year” for as long as I can remember…

…the “next year” is right now!

Cardinals are 1 game away from the Super Bowl…1 game that could be played at home if the Philadelphia Eagles dish out a beating to the New York Giants today…

Like I’ve said all season long…bring it on!!!
