Notable changes/events in 2011: Started writing as a Yahoo featured contributor. Tore my medial meniscus trying to dunk. My Grandma Rose passed away.
Follow-up from last year's hopes:
No emergency room trips. (Didn't have any.)
Organizing consistent flag football games with my buddies. (didn't happen)
For the right thing to happen around staying in Greensboro or moving to Dallas (It did.)
Lots of fun dates with Andrea (definitely),
Seeing the kids be happy as they do their best (yep),
BYU basketball makes a deep tournament run (yep),
The Lakers win another championship (nope),
The Carolina Panthers win more than two games (They definitely did.).
Hopes for 2012: That I can dunk again. Finish writing a book. Awesome 15th anniversary getaway.
