I have been asked by one of my dear readers in internets language:

In short: I went offline. Yes, it is pretty hard to believe but there is a world out there beside the “internets” . It is pretty scary and mostly immensely dull but they say when you grow up you spend most of your time there. Especially when you end up in a dead end job like I did almost two whole years ago where there are miles and miles of net cables but they might as well be used to play tug-of-war or tying us to our chairs so we could not stand up from our stations ever because no matter how much you tinkered around with the proxy you will never be able to connect to the world wide web. So I was forced to kick the habit because between work-work-school-work and some occasional sleeping I really had no time to update my online life.

Until today! First off I no longer have my booooooring job (has anyone else noticed how boring it is to hold down ‘o’ when typing boring like that?). I am currently on a hunt for an exciting and inspiring job. I bought my shotguns and bazookas and released the hounds and now I hope that if any prospective employers would read this would not run scared in the other direction.

I realized that the internet is not the same place without my constant blogging and general messing around on other people’s walls and twitting my cycling trips so I switched myself back to online mode.

So what is to come?

Cycling coz I still love it. My knee not so much however but I refuse to let the knee waggle the Tityti.

General whining due to school. Some of you already know that I am majoring new and social media in college and that I am not exactly the number one fan of studying (senseless stuff like humanetology because courses on web 2.0 are actually interesting however too darn rare). Next year I am doing my thesis paper and I am supposed to do some serious research after choosing the topic: The Friendship Between Facebook and Politics. I have every intention on sharing some fun and not so fun trivia with you guys once the project is progressing. So far the only progress I made was to design a logo of sorts:

I am currently brainstorming a street art campaign which will come with an online blast…and I am really hoping that the law is not reading this blog 😀

Uh, and of course politics. When I feel like it because lately I am in a rather apolitical mood. Do not worry though, it is just a phase I am going through every once in a while when I get slapped in the face by the harsh reality of the fact that  my vote worths nothing. I should get back into my naive state in no time and get worked up by stupid politics again.

Rewriting the Past

Today I nearly got my very first heart attack…sort of…well, it sounds good though :). Let’s just say that I was thrilled with a higher than average pulse and not thanks to the awful weather that flew past the city wreaking havoc. That’s kinda ordinary this summer. The cause was something the general population finds rather dull: cycling. Precisely the king of all the road races, the Tour de France.

But the storm got a tiny bit pissed that it was ignored so bluntly so it has decided to mess with me – and pretty much the whole block…blackout. Some 40 bloody k before the finish! I could not believe it.

We are slowly paving our way to the 2010 FIFA Football World Cup.*unenthusiastic* Yay! As a celebration let’s discover a bit more about Hungarian football, shall we? Do not worry if you do not like football this post, however seems like it, will not be about our ‘national sport’.

Ferenc "Puskás Öcsi"

Ferenc "Puskás Öcsi" Purczeld Bíró, the Legend

Almost everyone who is into football (this is soccer for you guys from the other side of the world 😀 ) knows Hungarian football=Puskás. The legendary striker of the Hungarian national team and Real Madrid has sadly passed away in 2006. His era – the Hungarian Golden Team‘s era – is long over now for decades but football is still loved and – in my humble opinion – a bit too spoiled by the people even when the quality could only be described with a four letter world starting with S and ending with HIT. We excel in many other sports yet it is still football that gets the most air time on TV…but that’s another story. Let’s make a quick twist into the field where I am a better player. (more…)

New and Improved(?) Broncos

The Man, the Heart I miss most from NFL, John Lynch

The Man, the Heart I miss most from NFL, John Lynch

This year it feels like I am the GM of Denver Broncos 😀 – apart from the tiny detail that with me they would have won the Superbowl and that John Lynch would still be playing. Almost.

First Shanahan had to leave and while people were surprised my shock quickly turned into happiness. I respect the guy, really, he was great but it seemed that he just could not have a handle on his new young team. It was easy to work with John Elway, Rod Smith, John Lynch and all the ‘old’ folks who still respected the game more, it wasn’t just about getting paid big-time for them. The new kids need a new type of coach who knows how to motivate these money-hungry players and for two years I saw that Shanahan was incapable of change.

Now it’s Jay Cutler’s turn to say goodbye to Denver. Yay! I know that the guy is serious talent but he is so raw he needs more than a jackhammer to crack his surface. Many compared him to (the young) Favre and I agree. And I like both of them but a consistent, mediocre player is still better than a guy who can loose a match that should have been easily won.

So goodbye and good luck, Mr. Shanahan and Mr. Cutler! Go new Broncos!
