Bill Snyder is back to coach K-State football? I’m sure he has his reasons but I don’t get it.
Seems to me like things are never the same the second time around, but all power cat to him.
Since football is on my brain today I am still trying to figure out how Texas Tech melted down like they did in Norman. The Sooners just dominated the Red Raiders. But as they say, on any given day anything can happen.
And that’s the draw for college sports. Anything can happen.
When I wrote about the Lawrence/Florence thing last week I didn’t remember the craziest part of the conversation.
I said maybe I could go along and watch a KU basketball game.
I think everyone knows by now—at least everyone who has a television set—that the analog signal broadcast by TV stations will convert to digital Feb. 9. Therefore, your TV antenna will not bring in the signal and you will need to get a converter box to make it work.
Anyone who already receives a digital signal through their cable or dish provider already gets a digital signal and won’t be affected.
I saw a link to a video about the conversion on Megan Duerksen’s blog that was hilarious. It’s titled “Oh Grandma.”
Here is how to watch it: http://www.hulu.com/watch/36608/talkshow-with-spike-feresten-cable-psa#s-p1-st-i1. This will be a live click-through link on our Free Press Web site.
Lately while driving, I’ve been watching for deer and have seen only coyotes and turkeys. Actually, I seldom see deer.
I probably shouldn’t have said that.
Have you thought about how much money was raised and spent on the recent political campaigns? Think how much food could have been purchased for food banks around the country and how much good that could have done.
I see where the State of Kansas is considering closing some of its jails in Kansas and that Wichita is talking about shifting some of its prisoners to these locations to ease crowding in Sedgwick County.
If there’s such a thing as a Thanksgiving resolution I am going to make one for myself.
I resolve not to eat cranberries for the 62nd straight year.
I had to return the Prairie Home Companion joke tapes this past weekend so I listened to them one more time....
This guy is in a bar with only the bartender present. He hears a voice that says, “You sure are handsome.” Then hears, “Your clothes look great, too.” But no one else is there. Then the bartender says, “Our peanuts are complimentary.”
We were discussing the use of video cameras to communicate via computers and what could happen if you weren’t presentable and happen to walk by when the video was on.
My answer would be to run when you are in front of the camera because it usually can’t keep up with a moving image and you would be blurred so bad no one could see anything.
In spite of all of the problems facing our country I am thankful to live in the most free and open nation on earth and so full of opportunity.
