How Vain

December 8, 2014

Recently I read an article about Gene Keady and his famous hair piece.  It was reported that Gene spent $600 a week for his famous comb over.  Not only did he have this comb over hair piece, he also added hair extensions to cover more of his baldness. If the hair piece alone wasn’t...

Purdue Football

December 5, 2014

When will the Purdue Boilermakers ever get their football program straightened out?  This year like every year since Joe Tiller retired they get worse as the season goes on instead of getting better.  They continue to make the same mistakes and the recruiting is horrible.

NFL vs. Regular Shows

December 4, 2014

I know a couple months ago I wrote an article about Sunday afternoon football games going over their time limit and ruining the viewing schedule for regular CBS shows.  Two weeks ago the Bengals played the Texans and their game was over before 4.  However, the next game did not come on until 4:30. ...

According to an Indianapolis Star article, one of the earliest (if not earliest) bowl game involving Indiana colleges took place in 1889 in what is now the Tech High School area of Indianapolis.  It involved Purdue and Butler. It so happened that there was a blizzard on that Thanksgiving Day in 1889, so only...

December 1, 2014

Here are some sobering figures that Glen Butte shared with me for this article. We revere the young sport star when he is in his prime and yell for his retirement when we think he is not producing the results we want. Unfortunately, here are some of those sobering facts after they retire or...

Here we are on another Thanksgiving Day.  I hope all is well with you and your family as you prepare for whatever traditions you enjoy on this day.  I will go out for a good meal and then settle down and watch a few football games.  I don’t think it would be a traditional...

November 26, 2014

The Cincinnati Bengals remain an enigma in pro football.  On any given weekend they can play well enough to beat anybody in pro football, and the next weekend play as if they are still trying to learn the game.  I suppose the funny part of this is that the entire NFL seems to have become...
