It was 2005. I was ten years old. I had just remembered the preamble to the constitution and was preparing break a school record in the Greenwood Joggers (my grade school’s version of watching hamsters run in a circle, but I was good).
Tiger’s win this last weekend, led to much reminiscing. What was I doing last time Tiger slipped into the Green Jacket? I was entering the prepubescent years (yes, I was a little slow to puberty). The glory days of two square and running in circles to win a pass to Adventure Land. Not a care in the world.
But in 2005 Tiger Woods, was golf. Phil existed as someone’s dad, Jordan Spieth is my age… and no one else on tour made a 10 year old want to watch golf.
This exact same feeling happened this weekend. So I just wanted highlight some notable events that took place in 2005.
- The Bird Flu took off in Europe and Asia
- Hurricane Katrina Hit the Gulf Coast
- Four Robotic vehicles crossed 240km in the Nevada Mojave desert
- Lance Armstrong won his seventh Tour de France
- Some of the best movies were:
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
- Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith
- Green Day was still hot
- Lastly in 2005 London won the bid for the 2012 Olympic Games
I think we can all agree, Tiger’s Master’s win was probably the best thing to happen in 2005 (except maybe Madagascar). I cannot imagine 2019 having any higher moments then what happened on Sunday. See you all in 2020… Repeat?
The winner will have a great certificate for work! And the loser is in a big TBD state…
Good luck, all!
Come join the Charlie & Me group in ESPN Tournament Challenge and see if your bracket beats the rest. http://fantasy.espn.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/2019/en/sharer?redirect=tcmen%3A%2F%2Fx-callback-url%2FshowGroup%3FgroupID%3D2676755&groupID=2676755
Most of us are enjoying our Sunday scaries, but some good people are preparing themselves for one of the best things to ever happen on a Monday morning. The Boston marathon. Fifty percent of this podcast is preparing to run, and we are wishing him the best!
Best wishes to our boy, Charlie! Don’t be the slowest guy out there!
Go get them!
Charlie and me are looking for an artist to create a new logo for the podcast. If you think you have what it takes, reach out to us with submissions or inquiries. All inquiries will be taken seriously.
Please help, I can’t look at Charlie’s face as our logo for much longer!
Charlie and I know that it seems like any more anyone with a MacBook and an opinion can create a podcast. We do not just want to be a mainstream podcast. We come together once a week to record these seemingly pointless conversations because we believe in the value of staying connected to our friends and family.
As many of you know, we both moved away from all of our college friends after graduation. We both have family and friends spread out all over the nation. We believe in staying in contact with as many of them as want to put up with our dumb questions and teasing. Further, it gives me an excuse to call Charlie about three times a week.
Moving forward, we hope to grow in our content and execution. We appreciate feedback and look forward to making this podcast as tuned to our listeners as possible. So if you have an opinion, don’t keep it yourself. Tell us, we might listen.
Charlie and I have decided to create a bracket challenge last minute, at the request of a loyal follower of the podcast.
There is no award for first place, but.. there is an award for last place. The worst bracket has to be at the mercy of the group (i.e. retake the ACT, stand on a corner and solicit relationship advice, etc). We are open to suggestions and would like all who want to sign up to comment their best idea on this post.
ESPN Group: Charlie & Me
We look forward to your responses!
A great conversation with Sam Karlson. Look into the episodes tab and find the most recent link to this podcast.
March Madness is ahead look for more information of teams to come!
Growth is upon us. Charlie and I had a very difficult time with our distribution of our podcasts through mass texting efforts and have now moved into the modern day with our own website.
We plan on publishing podcasts every week on Tuesdays. So check back frequently for the most updated 30 minute show.
We look forward to sharing this with our friends.
