  • Here's what can stop Ames High's #1 ranked basketball team: bad weather. The Little Cyclones 45th straight win will have to wait until Thursday. (Barring the upset of the new century by Indianola.)
  • Shawn Terrell put the jinx on himself tonight. He bragged how the Energy are so good, he can always shoot video of a bunch of highlights in a short time frame. That's all it took for the Energy to go cold, and Shawn to make a nice long stop at the Well.
  • Can't wait for #19 UNI at Drake. The young Dogs don't match up well with the physical Panthers, but a sold out, rocking Knapp Center will help Drake keep it a lot closer than last month's blowout.
  • Shawn Johnson stopped by today. She's on her way to Vancouver Wednesday. She'll spend a week cheering her friends, including Apolo Ohno, and playing "Mom" to some lucky young McDonald's contest winners. Shawn says we can also look for a new surprise from her at the NBA All-Star game. As for training, she's still working her way back into shape. Shawn tells me growing taller and older presents all new challenges for a gymnast, and even 18 can feel a little old. She still hasn't made up her mind about 2012, but I think she's enjoying life away from the gym too much to start spending 6 to 8 hours in one.
