|Don't Hate Because He Did What 99% Of You Would Have Done Too|
I know there were a lot of hurt feelings over how his commitment went down. I really don't think there was any ill will in it. And anyone who really thinks he should have stayed in Iowa is probably oblivious to the situations at Iowa State and Iowa back then. If anything, it's too bad Barnes couldn't have been a year or two younger. Not saying it would have stopped him from going to UNC, but with Hoiberg and some decent talent at ISU like Royce White now, the Cyclones would have been much more attractive than they were a few years ago.
Media days are coming and going. Iowa and Iowa State are done, Northern Iowa and Drake (if you care about Bulldog Football) are up tomorrow and Tuesday. Media days are one of those events you really anticipate and dread all at once. You anticipate them because it signals the start of football season after a long summer of next to nothing to talk about. You dread it, though, because they always say the same stuff regardless of where you go and it also means you have to wait another long month before an actual game is played. I'm ready for some football right now dang it!
|Will Vandy Be Dandy?|
|I Think The Guy On The Left Has A Better Chance Than We Realize|
That finish in the US Cellular 250 still blows my mind and I had a front row seat. The Iowa Speedway couldn't have had a better season. The Sprint Cup is coming sooner or later.
|What Is This, High School Musical?|
As for Tiger, Woods seems to have a habit of blaming others for his misfortune. He blamed the media for blowing up his extra marital problems and exacerbating the situation. He goes through swing coaches when he blames them for his swing problem. And then he blames his caddy for anything from bad play to carrying another guys bags when Woods is on the shelf. At what point is Tiger really going to look in a mirror and realize that HE is the problem.
|Sexy? Yes. Talented? Musically, No|
Katy Perry should just begin her porn career and give up this thing she calls a "music career". She's pretty much decided to go the Nickelback "I'm gonna sell out and just sing about sex, partying and drinking" route from day one, but the songs she makes just keep getting progressively worse. "TGIF" is terrible and I can't turn to a station and not hear it.
And no, I'm not some prude, I like plenty of music that has sexuality in it, the difference is it is ACTUAL MUSIC. Listen to a few Rolling Stones tunes from back in the day ("Brown Sugar" anyone?). You know what they were singing about, but the music actually sounded good and there was some actual emphasis on the craft. If you think I'm wrong, check back in about a decade when the Stones tunes are still getting more play despite being nearly 50 years old than the Perrys' and Kei$has' who will probably have long since gone out of rotation.
