- Iowa State got stomped on ESPN last night by !&$(!$* Kansas. Thank God I don't have cable.
- Iowa State is on ESPN Classic Saturday at 5 p.m. against Colorado. Bummer I don't have cable.
- Valpo is on ESPN2 at 11 a.m. Saturday. I'm not above eating lunch in a bar to watch basketball. *srednop*
- The West Marshall *snicker* Trojans are in the Iowa High School Boys State Basketball Tournament next week for the only time since 1990 (we lost in the finals to the Montezuma Revenge...er, Braves). None of my classmates' children seem to be starters--some of them play varsity football--but there's a wave of unwanted nostalgia anyway. The GOOD memories are Milli Vanilli and bangs hairsprayed six inches off the top of my forehead...
I'll move this outside the list because it's actually not uninteresting: My cousin Cole (OK, his mother is my cousin, but outside of Iowa no one can follow) got his picture in the paper. He's on the all-conference team, and going to the state tournament next week.
Wow. I hardly paid any attention to basketball the last two seasons, and this year it's nuts.
