Fuller's Field--Launching a New Blog

I'm a little late coming into the "Blog-o-sphere" but the time has come.

The impetus for starting this blog is to help others in the cyberworld know about my support for Mitt Romney's election to the White House in 2008--so that they too can catch the vision and support Romney. My worry for him is not in the general election----as a moderate-leaning conservative from the northeast who has ties to the Midwest (born and bred in Michigan--where his father was a beloved governor and businessman) and a proven track record for getting things done across party lines he would be primed to capture independent and/or moderate voters nationwide, making him the clear favorite over any Democrat that I could imagine. No, my worry for Mr. Romney is that much of the GOP base will not look past the labels that are slapped on him ("Northeasterner", "RINO"--Republicans in name only, or"Mormon") and find out that he is a morale and fiscal conservative that is wise and pragmatic enough to work with both sides of the isle and make great and needed changes in our system of government.

I also have other passions which include my family (wonderful wife Laura and four young boys ages 6-1), my job (as a retina specialist), and a desire for a college football playoff system (i.e. I am staunchly anti-BCS--Bowl Championship Series). I have "blogged" in the pre-blog era quite a bit about the BCS and may bring back some of those blogs.

Great start to blogging, Jeff! I too am a big Mitt supporter, and I have the same concerns as you in regards to the primary vs general election. How many times in the past could we really say that about a candidate?

As I travel the country/world for my job, I have really started to notice the blank stares and stuttering I elicit when I tell someone I am from Utah. Most people just change the subject at that point, assuming correctly that I am LDS (is it the glow? or just lack of sun?). With the existing misconceptions/distortions/lies out there about the LDS church and it's members, coupled with the emergence of HBO's Big Love, the timing of Mitt's (expected) run for the White House comes at what I think will be a very fun and interesting time to be LDS.

I'll keep an eye on your blog. Also, in case you are not aware, there are a couple of organized groups out there, of which I am a part of, that are doing their best to spread the good word on Romney. www.americansformitt.com is one that is working hard.

Death to the BCS...and go Cougars!(?)

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.

Hey jeff,

I stumbled across your blog looking for anti-BCS groups out there. I work for a documentary company and we are about to undertake a huge film project to take down the BCS. I HATE IT!!! But that's just my opinion :) Funny thing though, I started reading you're blog and noticed you're a Mitt fan. We just finished a film called Article 6: Faith, Politics, America, which discusses the religious hoops we make our candidates jump through, including (especially) Mitt. you'll have to check it out. Anyway, I'm just looking for folks who would like to see a change from the BCS system to a playoff that can help me with ideas, research, networking, anything. Let me know if you know of any groups. Thanks. Here's my email:

PS - Go Utes!
