Boring Oscars, Cyclones Break Through, Everybody Say Cooter

  • I love movies, and I love the Oscars, but that was a boring show. It had a few moments, but couldn't overcome the importance of a great host like Billy Crystal or Johnny Carson. James Franco looked either scared or disinterested. Anne Hathaway gave her all, but there's a reason Crystal received a standing-O. Everyone knows how he made something that's really hard look effortless.
  • It was a great year for movies. I agree with The Kings Speech as best picture, but you could make a case for several others.
  • I can't believe it had been 66 races since Jeff Gordon won. Guy used to win every other week.
  • Nice to see Fred Hoiberg and the Cyclones finally finish a game and win. Credit the Clones for playing hard all the way through a ten game losing streak.
  • Hundreds of Husker fans showed up at the Bob Feller Museum for the autographs of three Heisman trophy winners: Johnny Rodgers, Mike Rozier, and Eric Crouch. The three Husker legends were all gracious with their time, even agreeing to take part in a Cooter Ray video. "Everybody Say Cooter!"
  • Andy ate four servings of Dippin Dots Sunday night. He's ready for the girls state basketball tourney.
