Going to the Game
My wife of 44+ years purchased us a half season tickets to the Jayhawk home games and we are soon off to see Oklahoma come to play in the Fog. Their coach is Lon Kruger who was a big time star at K-State and a fine coach. I am sure that his young team will show up with a solid plan. It will be the execution of that plan in our house that will give them trouble.
Baylor losing at Allen
Today in the paper, Coach Bill Self said that he didn't get it. When Notre Dame holds the other team to less than 60 points and they make 59, it is great defense. When KU does that, it is poor offense. I think that the close games show that there is a heck of a lot more parity in the BIG XII than a lot of people want to admit. Yes, under Bill Self, KU has more conference championships than losses at Allen Field House but they also have been able to recruit some big time players. When I am channel surfing, I will turn on NBA games to see who from KU is playing. That big old slow white boy Nick Collison is just the right kind of help that Kevin Durant needs at OKC. I see the Morris twins show up for different teams from time to time and who doesn't watch Paul Pierce and the Celtics? Super Mario is about to get his jersey retired in the rafters of the Field house and you should hear the cheers when they show that 3 point shot he made to tie Memphis and we went on to win the NCAA that year.
What we do for fun here at Rabbit Run
A while back, I went to Cabellas over by KC and purchased a Trail Camera by Moultre.Products, LLC. We have started feeding the wild life to see what shows up. We have adopted one doe and her two yearlings as they show up about every day. I am waiting for the Bobcat or the Mountain Lion to show up but so far I have a lot of deer, coons and turkeys on film. I have the neighbor's dog several times but since I am feeding only corn he doesn't come down every day. I have even caught myself on film a time or two.
