Iowa Out, Iowa State In, Oscar Wrap

It was the longest of long shots that Iowa, with it’s low RPI, could even play its way onto the NCAA tourney bubble, but any hope burst with the loss at Illinois. If only Matt Gatens had more help. What a week Gatens had…

The Cyclones are in. They’re playing for a higher seed now. It wasn’t always pretty, but a gritty win at Kansas State will work fine…

Scott Christopherson made a three from the freaking Wildcat logo. And it looked easy…

The NBA slam dunk contest needs a reboot. The stars won’t do it, and the contest is stale…

I love that Kevin Durant won All-Star MVP. Durant goes to All-Star weekend and takes part in contests, spends time with fans—he just gets it…

Nightmare for NASCAR. The rain really dampens the sport’s showcase event. Can’t believe that’s the first time…

Props to Danica Patrick. She slammed that wall hard Thursday, and bounced right back to take the Nationwide poll Friday. She’s tough…

I thought the Oscars were mostly dull. Billy Crystal worked hard, but I think there’s only so much you can do when the big winners are The Artist and Hugo. I see a lot of movies, and I haven’t seen either. I have no desire to see a black and white silent movie. I would like to see Hugo, but could never get the kids interested…

Meryl Streep should have more than two Oscars, but I really wanted Viola Davis to win for The Help. Davis has a quiet moment at the beginning of that movie, when the reporter asks her if she ever had dreams of her own. Davis indicates yes, without ever speaking. The heartbreak and sacrifice is written all over her face. Brilliant…

Viola Davis.

Robert Griffin III is going to be the face of some lucky franchise. The guy has everything you’d want in a quarterback, including charisma…

I can’t believe how much NFL combine I watched. Or what they make these guys wear…

I may not be over the sight of B-Ross in a Grand View singlet any time soon…

    In defense of B Ross – I spent a lot of time at wrestling meets when my boys were in JHS/HS. B Ross looked better in his than than most of the kids in the extreme weight classes (the little guys were like toothpicks in a baggy sling, the really big guys had mudflaps in front. B Ross is no toothpick, but unless he was sucking his gut in all the way to the backbone, it would appear he can claim “no mudflap”!
