MURPHY’S LAW: Cold Blues, No Miz, Chicken Waffles

Anyone else having trouble shaking a cold? In our house, I think we’re just playing tag with germs. I’m back to sounding like Kathleen Turner…

It might be a really good time to go on an affordable cruise…

NBA All-Star weekend is great… if you’re a kid. Our youngest boys sat in front of the TV, riveted by the skills and slam dunk contests…

From the moment Iowa trailed Minnesota 21-5, the Hawkeyes played the best basketball I’ve seen out of the Hawks in years…

Iowa State blowing out TCU by 34 is both impressive, and perplexing. The Cyclones are too good to keep losing to bad teams on the road. Wednesday’s opponent, Baylor, is not a bad team…

Jay Pharaoh as Stephen A Smith on Saturday Night Live is spot-on. It’s barely exaggerated…

Danica Patrick winning the pole position for the Daytona 500 is historical. However, until Danica proves she can go fast in a crowd, she won’t quiet critics…

My wife and I tried to watch Les Miz. Two minutes in, Jenny said, “No way those guys pulling a ship into port would be singing”. I knew we were in trouble.

Several songs later, I couldn’t keep going either. Not judging, I just can’t suspend disbelief when virtually every line is sung. If you love musicals, and many do, I can see why Les Miz is classic…

Anyone see Good Day To Die Hard? I still want to see it. Critics killed it, but I need to hear from action movie lovers…

We tried to go to lunch downtown Saturday. Forgot how much state wrestling takes over the entire area. I’m not sure what the estimate is for economic impact, but it’s high…

The Des Moines Register’s 7-month commitment, Wrestling Wednesday, to cover the IOC’s idiotic decision to drop wrestling, and the effort to restore its rightful place, is a great idea. More info here

Love this note from the Register’s Rick Brown on Twitter: How cool is this? Fred Hoiberg got in touch with John Bohnenkamp today and offered his encouragement/advice on dealing with heart surgery. (Bornenkamp is sports editor of the Hawk Eye in Burlington.)…

By the end of March, you will be sick and tired of the Harlem Shake…

Lay’s rolled out some new potato chip flavors. The cheesy garlic bread and chicken & waffles both have a strong smell. The chicken & waffles sat half empty in our newsroom, which is a bad review. We’ll eat just about anything. It does taste like chicken and waffles, if you want that in a chip…
