Congratulations are in order for Jon Bon Jovi, the majority co-owner of the Philadelphia Soul (Arena Football League).

In just five seasons, Bon Jovi's team managed to take the top prize in the indoor football league's 22nd championship "ArenaBowl" held at the New Orleans Arena this past Sunday (7/2708) by defeating the defending champion San Jose SaberCats, 59-56.

Dr. Randy Pausch - A Tigger to the End

In August 2007, at age 46 and married with three children, Carnegie Mellon Computer Science Professor Randy Pausch was given the earth shattering news that he had six months to live.

Ever the optimist, a month later, on September 18, he gave his last lecture entitled, "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," to a packed McConomy Auditorium at Carnegie Mellon University.

The inspirational presentation discusses his lessons learned and offers advice on how to achieve goals both personal and professional. It also poses the simple yet life defining question, "Are you a Tigger or an Eeyore?"

The lecture has been viewed online more than five million times and turned into the best selling book, The Last Lecture.

If you've never seen the last lecture I strongly encourage you to watch it now; it is truly inspiring.

Randy Pausch passed away while surrounded by his family at his home in Chesapeake, Virginia in the early morning of July 25, 2008 ending his battle with pancreatic cancer.

RIP Randy and peace to your family.

More soon, I promise.
