Soccer Success & Marriage Success

The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn't move, kick it until it does. ~ Phil Woosnam from 1974
Spain's 1-0 victory over the Netherlands on Sunday afternoon attracted an average audience of 5.131 million viewers to the CBC-TV network, with a peak of 7.664 million, according to BBM overnight measurements.
Radio-Canada television drew 685, 000 in French for a combined 5.816 million watchers, a number 105 per cent higher than the English and French broadcasts of the 2006 final brought in.

In the United States, television viewership was up 41 per cent from four years ago, drawing 15.545 million on ABC and 8.8 million on Spanish-language Univision, according to Nielsen Media Research.


By the way, the rules of marriage are very simple, basically it is this: if HE moves, kick HIM. If HE doesn't move, kick HIM until HE does:)  ~ Ralph Hass from 2010
My 22nd anniversary is in 4 1/2  weeks♥ ♥

My voiceover friend, Stu Gray, also writes a blog called The Marry Blogger. He was also just published on Yahoo and with an article on how to keep your marriage stable. Thank you Stu!

I LOVE my marriage and voiceover work! Without question, my number one fan is my wife, Darlene. Should I set up a Facebook fan page for her to show my appreciation? I KNOW she would not like that...


  1. You da Man Ralph! thanks so much for the link love!

    Hope you are doing well...What's your secret to 22 years?

  2. No secret Stu. I would point to:
    - Commitment (Continuing to improve and work at the marriage).
    - Celebrate your history as a couple!
    - Communication (Many forms. Listening generally isn't a man's strong suit).

    Living these points out practically isn't as easy as theory many times though...

    ALL the best to you and Lisa!
