Portions of today's broadcast may have been recorded in advance before a live studio audience...

You know, I don't know why I just didn't take yesterday off, but I didn't. Especially since here I am again, at the airport about to hop on yet another SWA flight to TPA. But today, I'm jetting down to TPA fora a pretty special reason - at least to me.

See, Miley Cyrus is doing a show in the town I used to call home, and the place where Kyla was born and now calls home during the school year...

... and one of the cool things about this life I live and this career I have is that we get pretty unique opportunities when it comes to artists, and the music we play.

And if Kyla wants to meet Miley, well, that's what we're gonna do.

Some people I know - and who I love - have said to me that "you spoil her..." and "what will she have left to look forward too when she's sixteen or whatever..." Yup. You're right. I do spoil her. I mean, after all, she's my only one, and I love her more than I ever thought I could love anything else in this life, so, yeah, I'm gonna give her the chance to experience everything she wants to if I can possibly do it. Miley is for whatever reason an idol to her and I can think of far worse people to look up too.

All I'm saying this morning after 4 hours of sleep before I hop this flight to Raleigh, connecting on to Tampa, is that if I can make some dreams come true - even if they're fleeting and childish little things like taking my kiddo to see Miley - I'm gonna try to do it. There's nothing like seeing this munchkin smile with joy over something she loves. Her laugh when she's excited is infectious. And every time I get to experience these moments of pure bliss, I realize dreams of my own...

So here I am again. At the airport. A place I've been getting to know pretty well over the last few days and weeks...

.... but I do what I do because being a daddy demands I do it. And I'm thankful I have a job that allows me the freedom to do it. Because in the end, there's nothing more important than being a great daddy to a little girl... and absolutely nothing is more precious than family.

How 'bout dem Saints last night??! Wow! Football Jesus was right... again!

Alright. I'm in group A25. I need to sync up the iPhone for the flight down and double check some stuff before we take off. I'll of course tweet some updates and stuff...

Live with passion today. God knows it's worth it.
