So I’m here to help.
First, you MUST be disciplined. Go through and delete every third email. Do it fast and don’t dwell on who it’s from or what it’s about. If it’s really important, they’ll email you again. Probably. Regardless, it will allow you to “catch up” and feel good about yourself.
Second, delete this email. Now.
We flew to San Diego, rented a convertible, went to the San Diego Zoo, and ultimately attended a football game that was mostly a defensive display. But the right team won (UT 21 – Cal 10). Hook ’em Horns!
Here are a couple of pictures of the boys at the zoo.

Early – early – the next morning, we flew from San Diego to San Antonio, hooked up with Liz, my brother Kyle and his wife Marianne (both also Baylor grads), and went to the second bowl game in two days that evening.
That game was highly offensive (especially if you don’t like lots of excitement and points). It looked like they’d told both defenses that there was no need to actually tackle anyone, or like the defenses were playing touch football while the offenses were playing tackle.
Even when Baylor had 60 points (that’s right, 60), I thought they might still lose.
They didn’t. The final score was Baylor 67 – Washington 56. Sic ’em Bears!
Here’s a picture at that game.
A very fun couple of days.
Now, delete this thing and get to clearing your inbox.
Happy New Year.
