MURPHY’S LAW: Tough Guys Do Cry, Hawkeye Picks Hoosiers, Need More Pop

Murphy's Law Generic

Jake Knott has done the near impossible: he brought Cyclone and Hawkeye fans together. At least in their appreciation of one player, and his approach to the game. Knott revealed Wednesday his Cyclone career is over, bowl or not. He also disclosed he played Saturday with a torn labrum, and without the benefit of pain killers. My shoulder hurts just thinking about it. Heck, my mind hurts. All Knott did was win Big 12 player of the week.

If you missed Knott’s news conference, watch the raw video here. Jake gets emotional about the 6:15 mark. I know this because I caught a couple of my colleagues watching it over and over. Tough guys do cry…

I heard many day-after Beggar’s Night jokes. This one comes to mind, and I don’t think that’s a good thing:

Did you know diarrhea is genetic? It runs right through your genes.

Harrison Barnes scored the first two points of his NBA career. It’s been interesting watching Barnes go from Little Cyclone to Tar Heel to Warrior…

Dunkin Donuts is now open in West Des Moines. I go for the coffee. We buy it by the bag full…

Noodles and Qdoba both opened here in Des Moines, right down the street from channel 13. They both have a pop fountain that looks like this:

Problem is they need more than one. When you have a machine that has 100 flavors, expect each person to stand there for a long time making up their mind. Get a full house, and the line backs up. Like the choices, need more fountains…

Indiana is favored vs Iowa. In football. That doesn’t happen often. Hawkeye Nation’s Jon Miller is picking the Hoosiers to win. He’s not happy about it, but it’s an honest opinion…

The civil rights leaders in the Twin Cities who are claiming the Timberwolves roster is mostly white to attract Minnesota fans are missing the obvious. Nothing brings fans in like winning. There is still racism to fight. Go find it where it really exists…
