Corn Fed Tigers (plus Eric Crouch interview)

October 8th, 2008 · Comments Off on Corn Fed Tigers (plus Eric Crouch interview)

So the NU v. Mizzou game went just about as I called it. I’d look even more psychic if I’d have stuck with my original pick of 50-17. You win some… you lose some… and some you lose… you lose badly. Unfortunately, this week NU travels to Lubbock where things may get ugly again. Possibly […]

Bring on the Tigers

October 4th, 2008 · 3 Comments

yeah… I know that Mizzou is gonna win this one… probably about 43-17 or so… but I still picked NU to win 33-31 over at Huskerpedia (because 32-31 was already taken) Here’s the deal… Mizzou has always been the sleeping giant of midwest football (along with Illinois) and it seems like they’ve finally put fences […]

38 Random Things

October 1st, 2008 · 7 Comments

I’m OK… thanks for asking. I’m just not sure how I really want to use this blog or if I want to use it. I added the “Blogging Without Obligation” badge a long time ago and adhere to its principles. I’m glad to know that many people missed my blogging… but… I’m one of those […]

The Day In Between

July 13th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Day In Between

That’s where I’m at right now… the time between Saturday AM (July 12) and Sunday AM (July 13) is the roughly 24 hour period “IN BETWEEN”. Last week was the Taiwan Missionary Summer Conference. Drs. David Roadcup and Darrell Bock paired up to make the week memorable in so many ways. I have not looked […]

Making Friends in Omaha

June 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Those of you who know me personally (instead of digitally) and share my love of sports have probably heard me talk about the College World Series… hosted in my hometown of Omaha, Nebraska where the people are… friendly. Here’s an article from ESPN that might help explain why it is such a great event… it […]

Cycling 40km With A Kitten

May 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

My goal was 40km. Reaching that goal was seriously in doubt when, in my 2nd kilometer, I saw 2 dogs attacking a kitten. I have to admit that I really didn’t want to stop as I knew we couldn’t take another cat. We already have 1 which is probably twice as many as we should […]

Eating Some Bugs

May 12th, 2008 · Comments Off on Eating Some Bugs

Long ago… on the detasseling crew… we’d eat bugs (mostly box-elder bugs) once in a while as part of our mind game strategy with the kids on our crew. It helped with discipline issues if they thought we were a little psycho. But the most bugs I’ve ever eaten in my life was last Thursday […]

March 10th, 2008 · Comments Off on 2008 Sports and English Camp Website Goes Live

www.sportsandenglish.com is now LIVE! I’d like to see more pictures in the gallery… I’d like to have it translated in more places, but it seems ready for visitors.   The first Team Expansion Sports and English Camp was in the summer of 2006. I could not attend as we were in the USA at that […]

Back on the Bike

March 7th, 2008 · Comments Off on Back on the Bike

I had back surgery 2 months ago. I’ve been trying to be a good patient. It is somewhat difficult here because you never know when what you are doing will be met with shock and horror by our Taiwanese friends. Bananas… the PERFECT food, right?!?! One friend who shall remain nameless reminded me SEVERAL times […]

33 Reasons the Steelers will beat the Pats

December 7th, 2007 · Comments Off on 33 Reasons the Steelers will beat the Pats

I’m a far bigger college football fan than a pro football fan… except for my beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. Outside of the past 4 years, while Nebraska has played mostly sissy football, each team is known for tough defense, passionate play, overachieving, and crazy fans. This Sunday, the Stillers have a chance to knock off the […]
