  • Danica Patrick won’t race in the NASCAR Nationwide series race at Iowa Speedway. Oh well. That’s one fewer loss for her. Something tells me she’s not famous for her driving.
  • Joe Gibbs Racing signs Johnston Junior Brett Moffitt… another sign what a rising star Moffitt is.
  • If you tried to take the real Kurt Warner story to a Hollywood producer, they’d tell you to , “Get out of here with that fairy tale. No one will buy that.” It all really happened.
  • Say what you will about Todd Lickliter’s strategy on the court, the care and caution he’s shown Anthony Tucker is admirable.
  • Mark Phelps says UNI plays Washington Redskins style basketball. He does know the Redskins play football, right?
  • I still can’t believe Cael Sanderson is the wrestling coach at Penn State. He’ll lead the Nittany Lions at Iowa Friday night. Good luck, Cael. You’ll need it.
  • J.D. Salinger is dead at age 91. It will be hard to notice he’s gone. The recluse was the inspiration for James Earl Jones’ character Terrence Mann in Field of Dreams.
