  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the OSU-UM game in 2006 after my oldest brother got offered extra tickets to the game from OSU "because we oversold Minnesota, want 2 more tickets to Michigan instead?". I flew back. I have 4 brothers, I had to sit with the traitor but we had a ball at Hineygate and the game. Best tailgating I ever saw; total party.

Meanwhile, the investigation of North Carolina started how many years ago?   The players involved will be retiring before the NCAA does anything.

I have done that drive several times actually and yes, it is pretty boring. But at least you have decent radio to help you through.  I saw the worst wreck ever just outside of KC...we were stopped by the cops in a driving rain and had to watch them load up a few people that it looked like from the wreckage, didn't survive.  So weary from a day of driving, I made my husband take the next exit with restaurants.  Just as they are serving our meals, who sits behind us?  3 of the first responders to the wreck. They start talking about how bad it was, 2 were killed.  "Waiter, check please!" and we're back on the road, catching up with the storm.

DJ might be right about I-70 being the most boring, but he's got the wrong stretch.  I have driven across Kansas end to end and on the local radio at noon, they gave the previous nights bowling scores.

Not just the guy who got a 256, but "Mary Lou Sneed had an 85".   We prayed for a tornado or something exciting to break up the endless monotony that is Kansas.

A shout out to Seattle L, did you see the wages needed for the 2 bedroom apt? Quite a difference in my neighborhood vs  where you live.  This is skewed by Seattle #'s.  

Thanks God for summer and finally drying out.

Also, I think Gene Smith did a home run with Butlers coach.  Got the best he could.  I remember people hated Geiger, when Smith is gone, there will be some HUGE shoes to fill.

I don't like the idea of a 1 or 2 year contract with ANYONE.  Smith and Matta made it clear that recruiting was a key problem.   Give whomever a 3 year contract.

Let's ask Herbstreit who they're offering.  Geraldo might know too.

You absolutely SHOULD root for the Zags tonight.   I'm preparing to be the only one at work tomorrow if they win because all my coworkers will be calling off.

Even out here, the late tip off is a head scratcher.  They could have easily backed that up 1 hour without any loss in TV revenue.

I don't think anyone should consider them a "mid major" anymore.  Their NCAA record is significantly better than our over the past decade and more.  The reason Mark Few isn't going anywhere is he's trying to be the Duke of the west and he and others have moved the program in that direction.

Well if there is a worse abomination than the Steelers bumblebee uniforms I haven't see it yet.  My son is a bee keeper and those even hurt MY eyes.

The brown & orange aren't so bad together if you add more white here and there.

I like the orange pants too from the cardiac days.
