Random Thoughts 11/4/11

  • "The ice cream of the future," Dippin' Dots, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  
  • I know it was just an exhibition game, but the Jayhawks' new-and-improved Jeff Withey had a triple double: 18 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 blocks.  I'm hoping he develops into a true front line player because Kansas is going to be real thin on the bench this year.
  • This weekend I have both a wedding and funeral.  You can't hardly feel more bipolar than to go from a happy young Christian couple starting their lives together to a family that's just lost a loved one.
  • Is there any way the lawyers can get West Virginia in the Big 12 without paying an exorbitant fee while still making Mizzou pay out the nose to leave the conference?
  • We're settling into our new home.  It's crazy how we ended up there but I sure feel blessed that we did.  God is good.
  • Get used to the idea of the Los Angeles Vikings.  The stadium deal in Minnesota is ending soon and negotiations have been rough, to say the least.  The NFL wants a team in LA, which I've always thought would be Jaguars, but now the tables are tipping toward a relocated Vikings team.  That would make two purple and yellow professional sports franchises from Minnesota in LA with very un-California-like names:  the Vikings and the Lakers.
