I finally had a few minutes to watch a college basketball game tonight. Tough loss for Mizzou on the road at Kansas State. The good part of the evening are those hilarious Sonic Drive-In commercials… especially the one where the guy slaps away the tater tot bouncy castle with slide for sale from the other guy as he slowly eats it – Don’t bring that weak tot action… you go strong to the mouth or not at all! Check out the video here.

Makes me laugh every time. They even have an on-line game where you try to shoot the tater tot into the guy’s mouth… complete with “air ball” chants by the crowd, sneakers squeaking on the hardwood… makes you feel like you’re in the game. Or at least makes you want tater tots.

“I’m just saying…”

Snowstorm radarWould the scientist who said “the Earth is getting warmer” please report to Missouri for your ass-kicking. And bring Al Gore with you. So far, ANOTHER five inches of snow. Of course this is on top of an ice storm last weekend and a major blizzard inflatable slide for sale at the beginning of December. It’s not bad (at least here), but why is it some experts accept one isolated incident as proof of global warming, but dismiss other isolated incidents that don’t support their theory. Looks like a cycle to me… but I’m no expert (thank goodness).

One of the perks of having friends like Chuck and Cindy Zimmerman is that sometimes they throw you a little work. In addition to a full-time, inflatable water slides for sale temporary job I’m working to help pay the bills, I’m now blogging at DomesticFuels.com… one of ZimmComm’s agriculture-based web sites. Click this link, and you can also see my goofy mug. Good thing I married well.

With all the recent talk about what’s going on in Somalia, I thought you might like to hear the story of my trip into the Eastern Africa nation… inflatable obstacle course for sale before the Marines landed… and before Black Hawk Down.

Just a quick note… we’ve already received about an inch of freezing rain and ice pellets. It’s made the sidewalks like glass, but the roads are doing “OK” with slushy conditions… so far. The ice doesn’t seem to coating the trees and power lines very inflatable games for sale heavily… so far. Forecasters are calling for more ice and snow tonight, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed the power holds up (at least through the football game). Kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop…

OK, OK, I know Boise State didn’t really share in the national title, but the Broncos were the only ones to end the season unbeaten. But you can’t take anything away from Florida, as the Gators went out and dominated Ohio State… especially upfront on the offensive and defensive lines. For those of you who might have listened to my whining about no playoffs toddler bouncy castle for sale for Division I football in my January 8th podcast (see previous post), you know we won’t have a true national champion until there is a playoff. In the meantime, though, I raise a toast to my good friend, Chuck Zimmerman… a longtime diehard Gator fan.

Here’s my national champion rankings:
1. Florida and Boise State (but Florida gets the trophy… fair enough?)
2. Wisconsin (left out of the national championship picture by the goofy B.S. rules)… 12-1… the REAL reason there should have
been a playoff.
3. USC – nice win in the Rose Bowl after choking at the end of the season.
4. Ohio State – feel lucky you didn’t fall further.
5. LSU – took their turn part in the yearly ritual of beating to death Notre Dame in a bowl game.
6. Louisville – seems unfair to carry baseball bats into the game
7. Rutgers – probably should be above Louisville since they beat them head-to-head
8. Auburn – holy crap, another team below a team they beat this year (they beat Florida earlier)
9. TCU – gotta love the name “Horned Frogs”
10. West Virginia – ummm… running out of clever things to say, so I’ll wrap the top 10 (although it includes 11… just like the Big
10) with the Mountaineers.

“I’m just saying…”

Listen as I take no joy in possibly crowning inflatable tent for sale Boise State as National Champions of college football.

Here’s my first attempt at a podcast. I decided to tell some stories of the stories and travels I have had in my 20+ years in the news business. I’ll be updating this podcast each week with stories… when I run out of those maybe I’ll add some more thoughts I have on other things. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
