MURPHY’S LAW: Dougie Fresh, Erin Moody, Frozen Yogurt

murphys_law_400

Remember when people wondered if Doug McDermott was good enough to play at Iowa State? Another 31 points for Dougie Fresh Tuesday, all 31 against the team he originally committed, UNI…

I watched the Cyclone women on MC22. It seems like play-by-play man Rich Fellingham called Nikki Moody’s about 87 times. Maybe he did. Moody had 13 assists.

Hearing Moody often makes me think of Erin Kiernan. Erin hasn’t been Erin Moody for a long time, but it’s a name you don’t forget…

Erin Moody.

I have no interest in watching the Lance Armstrong interview. There’s nothing new to learn, and Armstrong’s only doing it out of his desperation, but that hasn’t kept Oprah from stretching the “get” over two hours, and two nights…

If Armstrong had asked me to do the interview, I would have told him… yes. I’m not stupid.  I wouldn’t spend much time on the cheating, doping, and lying. We all understand it, even if we don’t like it, or condone it. I’d push him on all the people, including friends, that Lance bullied, threatened, and sued because they tried to expose the truth. How could he try to ruin reputations, and even get people fired, when he knew they were telling the truth? Unconscionable.

No man is just one thing. Lance Armstrong used his name to do some good things, great things. I personally know many cancer survivors inspired by Armstrong’s (fairytale) story. Whatever the motivation, that counts too…

Kirk Ferentz made the right call pulling the scholarship of Des Moines Lincoln’s Trevon Young.  (As reported by Rivals, 24/7, Hawkeye Report.com and others.) Police arrested Young twice in the past year, once for burglary, once for trespassing. Young’s friends and family shouldn’t give up on him, and he certainly shouldn’t give up on himself, but a college scholarship is a privilege. He needs to take responsibility for his mistakes, and learn from them. I hope he does. Iowa doesn’t need to take this chance…

Iowa State hosts West Virginia Wednesday night. It’s a conference basketball game. Still not used to Mountaineers as an ISU “rival”…

Felt like 12 degrees outside Tuesday night. Inside the Urbandale gym, more like 101. The game was hot too. Hoover seemed to have Urbandale several times, but the Jayhawks would not go away. The U wins the top ten clash in triple overtime on a last-second three…

Orange Leaf and Menchies have both opened frozen yogurt stores right across from the station. So far it’s a tie. The kids are leaning toward Menchies. I’m sure it has to do with toppings…

Time to watch Parenthood on DVR. I hope this cancer arc ends soon. I can’t take tearing up every week…
