the hoosiers won!!!

February 5, 2009

we have been getting closer the last several games, but still I AM TOTALLY STOKED ABOUT IT!!!  this year has been rough.  that’s not a surprise.  i knew it would be difficult and that we would have lower our expectations, but still i wasn’t ready for how difficult it would be.  now that i am almost used to it (read: expecting it), it is absolutely thrilling to win a game!


janice in the economist

October 19, 2008

sarah palin was at verizon wireless music center in noblesville (indiana) on friday.  my mother-in-law was given tickets to go to the rally.  while there she started talking to a magazine reporter.  turns out this magazine reporter works for the economist.  she asked my mother-in-law a bunch of questions and is going to be calling her back soon to follow up on some of the questions.  i honestly don’t know much more than that.  but all the same, i’m quite excited that she might/probably will appear in the article.  how exciting.


how fun has this year been for college football?

November 24, 2007

this is one of those times that i wish never worked on a saturday. this year has been simply amazing in college football. i can’t remember a season with more major upsets, polls that change significantly weekly, perennially bad teams are good (indiana) and perennially good teams are bad (notre dame), games that should be blowouts are close and games that should be close are blowouts. this afternoon before i went to work i watch the big ten network’s replay of this year’s bucket game (indiana vs purdue) and got chills watching the hoosiers pull it out. right now i’m watching hawaii and boise st. is it just me or is every player on hawaii’s team way too fast for their own good. they are flying all over the place. and that colt brennan guy is kind of good.

it seems like every game i’ve watched has been plenty exciting. normally i watch closely every game that i have a personal interest in and will watch other games while i do other things. but this year, more than ever, i catch myself watching games that i normally have no interest in like it’s notre dame or indiana playing.

all this great football and now college basketball is starting with the hoosiers looking like they will content for a national championship! er-ric-gor-don clap, clap, clap clap clap!

it’s times like this that i feel bad for ash and addison.
