MURPHY’S LAW: Lolo Talks More Virginity, Drake Needs Candidates, Fear Bracket Guy

murphys_law_400

Des Moines’ Lolo Jones admits she often over-shares. There are many who will say that continues after Lolo reveals to HBO’s Real Sports that the only reason she’s bobsledding is her desperation for an Olympic medal. Lolo says if she had won a medal hurdling there is absolutely no way she’d bobsled. On one hand, it’s disrespectful to those who have worked to make the Olympic bobsledding team for years. On the other hand, we always want our athletes candid, which Lolo is…

On Real Sports, Lolo talks at great length about the accusations of style over substance. Lolo also talks about her virginity (again). No wonder Real Sports can’t put Lolo on enough. (And our video of her winning a 100 meter dash at Roosevelt High School.)  For a clip of Lolo talking about what she says is her non-existent sex life, click here

Lolo doesn’t have a filter, and sometimes she needs one, but I like her. Always have. Even when she could benefit some from better advice…

Also on Real Sports, Bernard Goldberg’s story on Mike Tyson is raw, and riveting. Preview here

If I’m Drake Athletics Director Sandy Hatfield Clubb, I find out  if T.J. Otzelberger, Bill Carmody, Kirk Speraw, and Greg Lansing are interested in coaching the Bulldogs. I’d say definitely on one, probably on two, possibly on three, not sure on all four…

Greg Lansing’s season should end Wednesday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Nice job by Hawk fans again filling the arena for an NIT game. That won’t happen next year, and Iowa doesn’t plan to find out…

I’ve filled out three brackets. One at channel 13 for office fun (my annual donation to someone else’s weekend party), one at http://www.kxno.com, and one at http://www.kiicradio.com in Albia, because it’s easy, free, has good prizes, and each entry sends a dollar to the fight against cancer. I have Indiana winning at all. I know, bold. Lynn Melling has Iowa State…

Andy Fales says we’ll see all these people this week as brackets take over:

*The Pro

*The Smart Girl

*The High Seed Lover

*The Guy Who’s Kicking Butt In His Other Pool

*The “I Had No Idea He Gave A Crap About Sports” Guy

*The Boss’s Daughter (who’s probably going to beat you)

*The Guy Who Works Pool Talk Into Every Conversation

Who are we missing? I’m sure you can add a few…

Notre Dame vs Iowa State is considered the ultimate “pick em” in the first round. Sorry, “second round” as the NCAA insists on calling it, even though no one else does, or should…

Channel 13’s Michael Admire and Brandon McCauley are on their way to Dayton right now. Des Moines will have a fuller arena…

The NCAA Wrestling Championships Fan Fest starts Wednesday and runs all weekend at Hy-Vee Hall. If you’re a wrestling fan, you’ll love it…

We ate a pizza from Jesse’s Embers tonight. They need to start serving these every night…

Royce White tells SI the NBA wants him out of the league because he’s too honest and speaks his mind too much. Another theory would be the NBA wants a first round draft choice making nearly two million dollars to actually contribute to the team…

The Miami Heat have won 23 games in a row. 27 seems certain. That is NUTS. The record is 33…
