  1. Re: Free Concert in Ames on Saturday: Robert Randolph

    Damn, I have plans or I'd be there. I saw this group open for DMB in Des Moines a few years back and have since bought two or three of their albums. But for anyone who's free, definitely check them...

    Poll: Re: Trimming-Before or after mowing

    It's funny you mention this because I voted before I looked at the results, and based on my experience I figured I'd be among the few who voted "trim first." Because in both houses I've owned, among...

    Poll: Re: Trimming-Before or after mowing

    The only time I ever bag grass clippings is if I've rented a power rake/dethatcher because that leaves a TON of grass behind. Beyond that I only use bags for leaves (of which I have few since my...

    Poll: Re: Trimming-Before or after mowing

    This is correct. Trim and edge before you mow so your mower can chew up the longer grass clippings as you mow.

    Re: KCCI Breaking News Mobile Alerts - Fail

    Amen to this. Even on KCCI's web site, their headlines are blatantly written as clickbait. I had to unfollow them on all forms of social media because it's the same way. If I wanted Buzzfeed I'd...

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    Absolutely. And to that I would add, run your programs the right way with student athletes we can be proud of. I think that matters here.

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    You're missing my point. I'm talking about a culture shift, not bandwagon jumping. Since Pollard arrived in Ames, he has asked Clone fans to step up and they've responded in donations and ticket...

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    I'm not suggesting anything one way or the other. I was just genuinely curious if they still did that.

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    I'm sure I'll get lambasted for this but you raise some fair points. But I think there are some things you leave out or underestimate.

    There's been a big culture shift among the Cyclone fan base....

    Do they no longer offer special ticket pricing for the under-30 crowd?

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    I was just busting balls, I knew what you meant. That said, the ultra-cheap tickets also isn't what most fans are paying. It would be one thing if we were talking about the real cheap seats going...

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    We've had one season of 8+ wins since 1978. I'm not sure "spoiled" is the term I'd use to describe Cyclone football fans.

    Re: AD letter and higher ticket costs

    What I'm most concerned about is parking at football games. The donation level for a parking pass has gone up pretty significantly in the last two or three years. While that's obviously the result of...

    Re: Hooray for Ames

    I actually forced myself to sit through the whole thing. The good news is, if you can stomach the first 30 seconds or so the rest of it really doesn't get any worse, it's pretty equally embarrassing...

    Re: Best String Trimmer on a budget

    Along these lines, I'd be curious if anyone has tried those multiple-function tools with switchable heads. Stihl makes one, maybe Homelite and I'm sure other brands. You have one motor and can swap...
  16. Re: Keeping Dogs off Propery (yes it is the offseason)

    Amen to this. I have a corner lot so I have a lot of sidewalk traffic. I was out mowing for the first time this weekend and was pretty ****** to see how much dog poop there was out there. Come on dog...

    Re: Jake Knott suspended for PEDs.

    I don't have much of a dog in this fight - it doesn't really affect the quality of my life one way or the other whether Jake Knott is a vicious roid fiend or an alien forcibly injected it into him or...

    Re: Jake Knott suspended for PEDs.

    Do athletes who get suspended for PEDs commonly sue the manufacturers? If not, there's probably a reason why, and it would probably be the same reason Jake doesn't. I wouldn't let that influence your...

    Re: Jake Knott suspended for PEDs.

    I can't believe players wouldn't know what's banned. But I can believe that players take things that may have something in it they weren't aware of. That said, they're professional athletes and they...
