    A Change in Our Luck?

    It seems like luck has been the enemy of ISU for as long as I can remember, but maybe this is a sign that it is finally time for us to take our turn in the light...

    Count me back on the Kool-Aid wagon, here's to a bowl game and an NCAA bid this year! (and maybe a Harrison commitment as well)

    “Now, how many people have ever had a hole-in-one using a range ball?”
    Actually, my only hole-in-one is with a range ball. I shanked a driver off the driving range that his a golf cart then bounced on to the practice green and into the cup.

    No he didn't. He saw Rose on the Lusitania, but she hid her face and he ended up walking away.

    One of the crew (Murdoch) shot himself in the head as that boat was sinking.

    Ummm you have to give up your man card for awhile for having that much knowledge of Titanic.

    That was makeup luck for the last 2 (3, 4?) years. Now, sadly, it's all caught up.


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Actually, yes he did. The elderly Rose says at the end of her story that Zane's character eventually killed himself.

    And yes, I will now turn in my man card--particularly since I revived this 6 week old thread just to correct somebody about Titanic.
