The Jeremy Lin story has it all, and anyone who isn’t enjoying it, is a fun-smashing hater…

The crowd favorite, the Pekingese, wins Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show. We used to have a Pekingnese when I was a kid. His name was Gooch. He was a nice dog. He would not have won…

The Big 12 finally released its football schedules for next season. Gone are Missouri and Texas A&M. Iowa State will travel to TCU, and host West Virginia. Those still don’t seem like Big 12 teams…

Dan McCarney says he plans to coach North Texas during spring practice. Sounds like Mac is feeling  good for a guy who just had a stroke. First hint might have been McCarney telling the Register’s Randy Peterson that people should send Grey Goose, not cards or flowers…

The Iowa High School Athletic Association and wrestling coaches need to get on the same page regarding state duals. There’s got to be a way to make the duals matter more without coaches and wrestlers thinking they’re hurting their chances at state…

“Parenthood” is going full heartstrings tonight. Must be dusty in here…

2:30 in the morning. I intended to be asleep 90 minutes ago, but then in one final channel surf, HBO was showing the underrated Amistad, and I happened to catch the great, “Give Us Free!” scene. Hooked. http://movieclips.com/RYVHX-amistad-movie-give-us-free/ After that, I had to stick around to catch John Quincy Adams’ (Anthony Hopkins) lengthy closing argument in front of the Supreme Court. Outstanding…

    “In Your Eyes” is the all-time best love song? How is that possible in a world where Paul McCartney's “Maybe I'm Amazed” and the Beatles' “Something” exist? (For the record, “Something” was Sinatra's favorite. End of argument.)

  • Keith Murphy

    Sinatra also thought toupees were cool.

    I'm sticking with “In Your Eyes”, though “Something” is a great love song, as is half of Van Morrison's stunning catalogue(“Crazy Love” anyone?).

    It's all fun.

    I hate douche bags that argue a subjective topic with the sign off, “end of argument” or “nuff said”.
    Seriously Rob Timmins, just because you disagree with someone else's opinion, doesn't make your opinion right.
    Nuff said.

    There's a couple of other songs I think merit some thought too…one is “I'll Make Love to You” by Boyz II Men. Just seems like something like that should be a question rather than a statement…

    The other one I'll put out there is probably pretty sacrosanct in this moment in time, but I'll throw it out anyway: “I Will Always Love You” by Whitney Houston…because it's not an “I love you” song, it's an “I don't want to do this, but I'm breaking up with you song.”
