A couple months ago, as we were recording another fun episode of Ringside, the guys were trying to figure out an elf on the shelf for Lent. Immediately, Ross Engel threw out “Judas on the jukebox.” It’s a great name, but who has a jukebox? While many eligible and some profane names were tossed around, my buddy Dave Rufner came up with “gnome in the home.”  Get them while they’re hot!

For the last several weeks I’ve been living in the backwoods of the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) at Ft. Polk, Louisiana. Training alongside my Soldiers, I was “disconnected” from the rest of the world during this time, with no access to my phone or personal laptop. That meant: no calls, texts, email, Facebook, or Twitter, no ESPN, Fox News, Huffington Post, or I had virtually no idea what news stories were breaking, which sports teams were winning, and perhaps most importantly, no ability to engage you, the readers of The Jagged Word!
