Chart-topping, Academy Award winning catchy tune from the 1969 film "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid".

Nothin's worryin' me.

For those interested in the Oroville Dam situation...keeping a good thought for those who have been or may yet be affected...

A little late here but hey it's a busy week. For Valentines I fired up the gas grill and cooked some double lamb chops and asparagus. Wife made some butternut squash soup and also baked gluten free brownies for dessert. Everything was good despite my nearly burning the meat while trying to watch the Basketbucks keep up with Michigan State. You know, the fat that cooks out of lamb burns like gasoline if you let it.

The Spartans saved our dinner by pulling away in the second half.

IIRC Buckeyes were #1 going into the 1998 season after a bad loss (31-14 to Florida State in the Orange Bowl) to end the previous season. Kind of an interesting parallel. I wonder if Nick Saban (MSU HC back then) remembers.

I had literally had nothing going on Saturday night so I cracked open a beer and watched the recording of the game from earlier. Maryland had too much but it was a good effort and the Bucks hung in very well. I enjoyed watching this one.

I like Micah Potter but he's just not a center. At this point why not use David Bell at center to spell Thompson. Maybe Potter can help the team more at forward. Somebody will have to replace Loving there next season.

I recall at one point early last season Coach Meyer talking about getting Malik Barrow ready to play. It might have been early in the season, not long after Sprinkle's injury. As it happened other guys stepped up or got a little better, so while our DTs may not have been dominant they weren't a weakness either.

Plenty of guys with experience coming back including Sprinkle and now Barrow is in the mix too, maybe one guy or two will emerge as a consistent playmaker at DT.

Come to think if it, according to a post I saw here on 11W IIRC, his real name is Gary but his grandmother pronounced it "Geddy ", and that stuck.

Oh come on, they've probably forgotten more about whiskey than all you people combined are ever going to know! (Based on one of Coach Knight's lesser known quotes about basketball from a long ago press conference).

The pick six was the harbinger of doom. I didn't exactly predict the Falcons' demise at that point, but I did say out loud that the cockiness we saw at the end of that play should be very disconcerting for Atlanta fans.

Children of Men offers an intriguing look at what the not too distant future may look like. It's not cheery but well done with Clive Owen and Michael Caine delivering the goods.
