MURPHY’S LAW: Mihalovich Surprise, Happy Gilmore Gallery, Octoberfest Keg

Murphy's Law Generic

It was a nice surprise to see suspended Lincoln coach Tom Mihalovich escort a player on the homecoming court. Nice job by administrators of looking past all the conflict and thinking of the kid…

Urbandale and Valley played a heck of a Big Game Friday. I’m not surprised Valley won. The Tigers may be unranked now, but they started the season #1 for a reason…

Des Moines Roosevelt left for its game in Sioux City at 10 a.m…

I love the Ryder Cup. Not enough to pick it over college football, but it’s fun. It pulls you in the same way the Olympics does. Nothing wrong with a little nationalism…

Zach Johnson should have played Friday afternoon instead of Tiger Woods, but the USA team survived Tiger’s awful play…

I love seeing how much these pro golfers want to win for their country. It’s just plain cool. And the fans in Chicago are like Happy Gilmore’s gallery. We need more of that in golf…

Add to the list of things we never thought we’d see but saw: a standing ovation for football officials. It won’t last…

Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera is a legitimate threat to win the triple crown. No one is talking about it. Football bigfoots everything in its path these days…

I’ll take the underdogs Saturday. That’s Cyclones and Gophers. Iowa winning big would not surprise me at all, but after being confident they’d run away from a bad Central Michigan team, it’s time the Hawks showed me something. I hope they do…

I wonder how long the free keg lasted at Hessen Haus’ Octoberfest. Five minutes?…
