On January 31, I attended my first Super Bowl Media Day—quite possibly one of my most memorable experiences in my short journalism career. I tweeted a lot that day—mostly about serious and spiritual things for our subscribers—but there were also a number of tidbits that didn’t make the, uh, dreaded 140-character Twitter limit.

3:21 a.m. – Wake up ready to go, then realize it’s not even 4 a.m.
Somewhere between 3:22 a.m. and 7 a.m. – Have a dream about purposely tripping Tom Brady at Media Day and justifying my act of violence by saying it’s work related. Seriously.

In what ESPN and other press members deemed "Black Monday" (at least they didn't call it Fire-gate or something like that) two NFL coaches got the pink slip and one father and son dynamic duo were booted off of the ranch on Monday.
Head coach Steve Spagnuolo and along with GM Billy Devaney were fired from the St. Louis Rams (2-14) and Raheem Morris was fired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12) after ending the season on a ten-game losing streak, who just one year ago coached the team to a 10 win season.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience at the Indianapolis Colts practice facility with our videographer/photographer Aaron May and our networking guru Greg Arnold.
We sat down with the head coach of the Colts, Jim Caldwell, and their offensive coordinator, Clyde Christensen, to discuss their work with All Pro Dad and ask them questions about their faith.
