That was the best part of my wife being pregnant, we went out to eat every night it felt like!

My pregnant wife got me when I was 24.

The old "Wife's pregnant but the husband's showing" thing.

I didn't read it.  But I didn't complain about it either.

Probably not going to happen, but I would love to see Wiscy get past Bama in a couple of months.  Somehow.  Maybe there is a chance, if Saban can't find a good QB by then...

While I certainly didn't share JP's enthusiasm for what is going on up north, I think there might well be some truth in some of the things he said.  Should be an interesting season.

Right now I'm enjoying a Great Lakes Brewing Commodore Perry IPA.  Don't give up the sip!

That look is reminiscent of the Purdue cheerleader in the play featured on "C'mon, man!" back in 2013, after Zeke destroyed the Boilermaker kickoff returner.

I thing it's worth mentioning--and I apologize if someone else already did--that, at Midway, Japan lost four of the six aircraft carriers that had attacked Pearl Harbor; a crushing, devastating defeat.  The U.S. Navy lost one carrier, Yorktown, which had been badly damaged at the Battle of the Coral Sea just a few weeks earlier.  The other two Japanese carriers that had attacked Pearl had also fought in the Coral Sea and were not at Midway.

When I was a kid I read as many books as I could about Midway, the U.S. Navy and WWII as I could get my hands on.

I remember when I was a kid, being at a Reds game and seeing Bernie Carbo swing and miss at a pitch that fooled him so badly that the bat flew out of his hands and clobbered somone who was sitting in the stands along the first base line.  One of the strangest things I have ever seen, and scary.

Too bad, I'm flying in for some meetings in Mason, but not until Monday.  Would have been tempting.

I'll have to settle for a Skyline fix at some point.

Well, I wasn't going to go there, but now that we know the Caroline that the song was really about...
