Belting It Out at the Gridiron Club Dinner

I usually assume that when people tell me that I have a great singing voice, they’re just being polite. And I know for a fact that I don’t have a great singing voice. Even I’m not deluded enough to believe that. But at the Gridiron Club Dinner, I more than made up for my lack of vocal skills by giving my own rousing rendition that sums up some key decisions I’ve made in the past few months.

Someone actually put this up on YouTube not long afterwards. Chase showed me how to post it here.

This is pretty cool. I think I am warming up to this weblog thing. Hey, I even get to control the media that shows up here (unlike in the real world, unfortunately).

I think this is solid evidence that I can take the time to laugh at myself. That’s supremely important for someone in my position, given the challenges I’ve had to face in these last few months before I hand the reigns over to the next person to hold this office.

So I’m going to go out on a high note, figuratively and literally. Look out for my new album to come out sometime this summer.

God bless.
