Random Thoughts 9/21/11

  • You might see this on your doorstep in about six weeks: angry bird costumes!
  • KCMO schools lost their accreditation and now other schools in the metro are fretting over whether those students will begin to flood their districts.  It's a good day to be homeschooled in KC.
  • The Pac-12 says no for now, sorry Oklahoma.  But this may be excellent news for Big 12… maybe…
  • Do Oklahoma State fans care that they are don't appear to have any say in what happens to their school?  The national discussion is if the Sooners decide to stay or go, Oklahoma State is following them.  That seems kind of humiliating that the Cowboys don't have a noticeable voice.
  • If you're in our Pick-a-Loser contest, you can change your pick during the week.  If you send me a pick on Tuesday and then change it Saturday night, that's okay.
  • I'll say it again, if Mizzou can leave and go to the SEC, then go.  I'd rather the Big 12 stay together and expand, but…
  • We looked at some other houses again for comparison-sake last night.  Meh…  I'm still eager for the house on Hubbard Road to work out.  I'm sure it will eventually.
  • There were two more airshow accidents this last week, adding to a tragic summer.  First the Reno Air Races had a brutal crash of a modified P-51 that hit the crowd of spectators, killing 11 and injuring dozens.  Then a 1950's T-28 crashed at a West Virginia airshow killing the pilot in a fiery explosion.
  • Today is the 74th anniversary of the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit.  My older two boys are definitely reading that book this year before the first movie comes out a year from this Christmas.
  • You hate to kick someone out of the church, but… when he's a groundhog the size of a large cat living under the church sidewalk, we have to do what we have to do.  This guy got relocated to the country this afternoon:
