  • Just watched Charlie Sheen on Leno. I’ll say this, Sheen’s never boring.
  • How ’bout Des Moines’ Jeremy Hellickson just shutting down the Red Sox at Fenway Park?!
  • Moneyball, the movie, looks good. Bratt Pitt as an MLB GM? Why not.

  • Overheard from one of the coaches at my son’s fifth grade football practice, “Quit acting like you’re in a pizza line! No pizza gettin’ served here.This is the get your butt in gear line!” I love it. And the coach is doing a great job.
  • Cade’s fundraiser was Butter Braid Pastries. I don’t know what these are, but we now have a freezer full of them. I hope they’re good.

  • Is there a bigger non-story than ESPN’s Tedy Bruschi criticizing Chad Ochocinco’s praise-the-Patriots tweet? No. There’s not.
  • Here’s where the Iowa State football team can really impress me: beat UConn. The more we move away from the Cyclones thrilling win over Iowa, the more ISU’s long history of flopping at moments like this affects my expectations. Monday, I thought Iowa State would win. Now as Thursday turns to Friday, I wonder.
  • My, “we really are watching something special” moment from Saturday’s game was when I received a text from Erin Kiernan. I won’t repeat it here, but she was pretty excited!
  • I’m sure the Iowa High School Athletic Association doesn’t like Friday night college football games. No doubt Iowa State playing on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. will hurt gates.
  • Did anyone see the Bucky Larson movie? I want confirmation that the movie is as awful as the previews looked.

  • Netflix, you lose.
