    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Has anyone seen the statue? Is it Johnny doing the fist pump? It would be really disappointing if it didn't capture Johnny's personality.

    I for one cannot wait until tonight. My son gets to see the man who started Hilton Magic. For my son to have a chance to see Johnny come out to the Tonight Show theme sone is going to be special. Probably the last chance for any of us to see it.

    This! I haven't seen anywhere that says they are doing it, but it would be dumb for them not to do it. Haven't been this excited for an Iowa State game and festivities in a long time!

    This is what I was hoping also!!! Being on ESPN2 you know you won't see it there and I would like to watch the pregame ceremony they have for him. I would have loved to be there but I have to work late tonight so will be in the office until around tip off

    I'm 30 so all I know is ISU basketball from Johnny forward and am very glad they are honoring him tonight... He deserves every bit of it.
