    I keep thinking back to last year's ice bowl with Kansas. Freaking cold but one of the most memorable experiences I'll ever have tailgating/games at JTS.

    No coolers necessary... we just threw all the booze in the snow pile. Even then sometimes we had to take it over to the heaters/fire to thaw some of it out! While playing flippy cup, part of the beer would freeze in the cup before you could drink it... and the table was covered in beer ice/slush. I think we perfected the art of taking the glove off quickly to flip and get it back on without losing fingers. Everyone still partied it up like we would at 70 and sunshine just with a few more layers. My cousin from Missouri got a good taste of what tailgating is all about up at JTS even though the lots were 1/5 of normal.


    As for the game, I had sideline passes for the two of us. Awesome. Field was just as immaculate even tho the area from numbers to sidelines was caked in ice. Watching Kansas fall down on their ***** a lot. Celebrating with ShonJohn (Avatar) not once but twice (one called back for penalty) and getting it on video as it happened. Priceless. Talking with the umpire in one of the commercial breaks, which wasn't even his coldest game he'd called before. Real down to earth guy. Catching a warmup in the box with a little snack time at half. Boom!

    Overall just an awesome time that I'll never forget.

    Not a bad random thought in my mind.

    Is it bad when your eyes feel like something is trying to push them out of your skull?

    Seeing all these tweets about incoming freshmen all excited to start college and stuff. I remember when I was young and naive.

    I actually called the department of vehicle enforcement today, and they put me through to the officer that patrols that stretch of 35. He was quite receptive, and said he would put out a memo, and increase his enforcement of making sure drivers were covering their loads. He would also alert them at the weigh station as well.

    Iguess I can get get some sort of sense of satisfaction..... however I'm sure I'll see it again next week.

    What's even worse is when they load some sort of heavy equipment onto a flat trailer and there is all sorts of mud and gravel on the treads. Then they drive down the highway with dried mud and gravel bouncing into the traffic behind them. I was behind one on the motorcycle and I pulled over onto the shoulder and waited a few minutes to give them ample time to get away. There was no way I was going to try and get close enough to attempt to pass with all the junk bouncing around behind it.

    I HATE the new Stew Hansen theme song. Nothing more than a faux-patriotic love song to themselves.
