The Buried Life

January 2, 2011 by  

As we enter 2011 and I sit here watching the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs do battle at Arrowhead Stadium, I am actually thinking about what I want to do before I die. Spencer got me hooked on MTV’s The Buried Life, a show where four guys try and cross items off of their bucket list while helping others do the same.

The Buried Life

I don’t have a whole lot of items on my bucket list, but there are some things I definitely want to do. In no particular order, the list for my own The Buried Life would include:

Places to Visit

  • Austrailia
  • Dubai
  • South Africa
  • Amsterdam
  • A few weeks exploring Eurpoe

Other things I want to do:

  • Coach high school & Legion baseball again
  • Walk my daughter down the aisle
  • Be a grandfather
  • See 150 Dave Matthews Band shows (I’m currently at 76)
  • Own my own businesses, including a sports bar or some variation
  • Set my children up financially

Not sure how many of the items I will get to accomplish in 2011, but only one or two are probably even close to feasible in the short term. But a guy can wish, right? Some items will definitely require me to live awhile since I became a parent in my mid thirties, but hopefully with a commitment to being healthier, maybe that will just happen.

I am definitely thankful for my wonderful family and friends, and certainly hope to share in my Buried Life experiences with them all.

Peace from the OP,
