Do you want to see 1,000 pictures from our Memorial Day weekend? There’s something about summer (and, well, almost summer) and being out doing stuff that makes me kind of not want to sit down and write anything. That’s usually the same time I want to take lots of pictures.

Oh no! Dan Hawkins, University of Colorado football coach, was fired today.
I’m not upset because I love Dan Hawkins or care about CU football. I’m upset because Dan Hawkins had one of the best coach meltdowns of all time. The meltdown was so awesome t-shirts quoting it have been sported by Buffs fans for years. It’s a timeless meltdown that addresses the delicate balance between players and coaches, overworking young players and developing their athletic skills, and parental over-involvement and the discretion of the coach who has been entrusted to do what’s best for the team. It took someone as brave and as dedicated as Dan Hawkins to finally come out and say, “It’s Division 1 football!” and “It ain’t intramurals!”
