The Heroes Game, Nebraska Media, Preggo Pictures
I don't know what to think about "The Heroes Game". It's intriguing, because it's unlike anything that's ever been done...but it seems strange that random people will have their name's and hometown's etched in the trophy. Either you're going to need a microscope to read the names, or the trophy is going to be the size of an armoire.
Iowa State fans aren't too happy. Hy-Vee dumped the Cy-Hawk series for "The Heroes Game". Fareway and Dahl's may see a increase in traffic over the next few months.
The Iowa-Nebraska rivalry is off to a rather tame start. Kirk Ferentz had the perfect opportunity to light a fire between the borders at the Big Ten Kickoff, in Chicago, today. Some Nebraska media member (I think he's a TV guy) interrupted a Ferentz interview to ask the coach for his autograph. That's not the worst part of the story. The worst part is that Ferentz reportedly obliged!
You know it's football season when the calendar turns to August. I know it's football season when someone accuses me of being a Hawkeye homer.....and another accuses me of being a Cyclone apologist. Football is here!
The DJK fiasco is still alive and well. He still hasn't confirmed that he's signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. Or at least I don't think he has...here are 3 of his latest tweets:
1. "Tonight's social performance is brought to you by #LouisVuitton & #AceOfSpades. #koulianosANDzembillas @s_zembillas Cy & Si"2. "1 of the koulest things Wayne ever said:"I see yo homies dressed in black like they finna ride- but that fashion statement telln ah lie" wow"
3. "HINT: When she txt me,I call back... She all that."
Dowling and Mason City will meet for the 4A baseball championship. Seems fitting considering the two teams have been jockeying for position atop the rankings all season long. If Dowling wins, they would begin the academic year with a championship on the football field, and end with a championship on the baseball diamond. Not too shabby.
Why must some preggo woman insist on posting pictures of their expanding midriff on facebook? That's not what I want to see when I wake up in the morning and check my feed.
I'm beginning to wonder if Bill Fennelly does any actual work in the summer (sarcasm). All the guy tweets about is Cardinals baseball --- and he tweets at least 5 times a day.
After a four-month hiatus, Keith Murphy returns to work on Sunday. I hope he remembers the parking lot code.
