I hear you, Ethan. May 2nd and we received an email at work warning us ice and snow chunks could fall from the tower. That’s a literal heads-up I appreciate.

The Iowa Hawkeyes just switched Thanksgiving basketball tournaments from Alaska to the Bahamas. Alaska is nice, and underrated, but this is still a Daniel Craig for Pierce Brosnan-level upgrade…

Nate Kaeding calls it a career. The former Hawkeye kicker retires from the NFL after nine seasons due to a chronic groin injury. That sounds like a good reason.
