MURPHY’S LAW: Debate Street Fight, Rooster Booster, Boom!

Murphy's Law Generic

Best presidential debate summary I saw was from our Andrew Downs: Guy 1-Here’s my answer. Guy 2-That’s not true. Guy 1-Yes, it is. Guy 2- No, it isn’t.

Handshake, but by the end, punches seemed more likely.

President Obama did not sleep through this one. In fact, at one point, as Obama and Romney circled each other, I wanted to see them climb into the octagon and settle this alpha male standoff with an MMA-style street fight…

I don’t think Kirk Ferentz is playing games when it comes to Mark Weisman’s sore ankle. If it wasn’t serious, Weisman would have played the overtimes at Michigan State. At best, Weisman will play hobbled…

I gave up on the game with the Broncos trailing the Chargers 24-0. By the time I was done watching Chicago Fire on DVR, the Broncos won, and Phillip Rivers was looking for his pride. All fires were out though…

The Super Bowl halftime entertainer is Beyonce. She’s more than 20 years younger than the typical act, and that’s a good thing. Mix it up. Don’t have to go aging legends every year. There’s room for Bruce and Bieber. Well, maybe not Bieber…
