Iowa State Fair, it’s time to up your deep-fried game. The San Diego State Fair introduced the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe.  That doesn’t sound good to me. Krispy Kreme donut, good. Sloppy Joe, good. Together? Tummy ache:

(By the way, San Diego State Fair? When did San Diego become a state? Then again I went to Valdosta State University. Don’t remember Valdosta being a star represented on the flag.)…

The LeBron James to Michael Jordan comparisons ended Tuesday night. Jordan would never no-show like that in a championship game. But I still think LeBron, who is undoubtedly the best active player, will come back strong in game 4 Thursday night. Watch James lead the erratic Heat to a win…

Am I the only one who thought Danny Green would lead these NBA playoffs in scoring? You’re right…

There is genuine momentum for the NHL, relatively speaking, and it’s only going to build after a nail-biting classic game 1. Other than delaying our newscast for a lonnnnng time, it was a perfect display of what makes hockey so exciting. Blackhawks outlast the Bruins 4-3 in triple overtime…

You’ve heard of playoff beards in hockey. Well, Park Ridge Illinois’ Frank Miller decided to support his beloved Blackhawks with a playoff lawn. His neighbors didn’t support the idea. Miller says he was watching a game on TV, when he heard a lawnmower outside his window. Yep, one of his neighbors mowed the grass. For more of this story from WGN, click here...

The Iowa Cubs’ Ian Stewart did something most of us have done at one time or another. He tweeted angry. Or at the very least, when his emotions were running high. Maybe for you it wasn’t Twitter, it was Facebook. Or a text, or an email, or even an old school voice mail. It almost always leads to regret. For Stewart, it led to an indefinite suspension without pay…

We had comedian Jim Gaffigan on our radio show Wednesday. Gaffigan confirms an anecdote from his book, Dad Is Fat, is actually true. In the middle of nowhere on his way to the Grand Canyon, Gaffigan stumbled upon a drive thru beef jerky store. Nothing else, just jerky you could order from your car:

beef jerkyI love beef jerky. I suppose it makes as much sense as drive thru donuts first did. At least it’s not a Hot Pocket drive thru. (Gaffigan joke. By the way, Gaffigan will appear at Barnes & Noble in West Des Moines Friday at noon.)…
