Fennelly the Fighter, Cowboy Up, Random Vacation Pics


Second straight night we've seen a prominent coach have a meltdown. Unlike Fran McCaffery's temper tantrum at UNI, Bill Fennelly's technical seemed to spark the Cyclones in their come-from-behind win over the Hawkeyes. Fennelly disagrees with that. He says he doesn't believe techs ever help the team, but his players said Fennelly's emotion made them dig deep...

Fennelly's postgame news conference, where he could barely whisper his words, was a reminder he's fighting cancer and undergoing chemo while coaching. It can't be easy...

Some good reporting by the Register's Rick Brown on the likelihood that future Iowa and ISU men's basketball games vs Drake and UNI will happen at Big 4 doubleheaders at Wells Fargo Arena...

The more we learn of Jerry Sandusky, the more shameful and disgusting the story gets. Sandusky, dressed in a Penn State track suit, was led off in handcuffs Wednesday---arrested again after more victims came forward. The ninth and tenth victims also have horrific stories. Meantime, Sandusky applied for a job as a high school volunteer coach last year but the school didn't hire him when learning of the grand jury investigation into widespread sexual abuse. But Penn State kept allowing him run of the football facilities! What a dark, depressing mess...


Cowboy Up, Wade Sundell
Boxholm's Wade Sundell is in third place after round six of saddle bronc riding at the National Finals Rodeo. The pride of Boxholm can still win the world championship at the "Super Bowl or Rodeo". Sundell has won more than $160,000 in prize money this year and entered the sold out Las Vegas event #2 in the world...

I watched Pearl Harbor, the movie, on December 7th. The film has stunning visuals, but what a misfire to make the love triangle more important than the war...

The ESPN book is now in paperback and has even more chapters. It took me several minutes to complete the slog, I can't imagine even more pages. It has its moments, but not enough of them, and no narrative. Kind of like this blog, but instead of one page, 700...

How 'bout some random pictures from vacation? Not the fun days. The travel days.
Jenny ALWAYS gets the full body cavity search. She must look suspicious.

Chris Hassel thinks these should be available on every toilet, even in homes.

There's so much luxury on a plane these days.

Only in Mexico do you find a giant bottle of tequila walking around.

Is there any risk in smoking these?

Looks like Bobbi D took her babies and went home. That's a shame.
