Anyways, enjoy the performance of Man on the Moon by 2007 Class Inductee, R.E.M and presenter Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam (Class of 2016? A band or performer is eligible 25 years after the release of their first record). R.E.M. exploded onto the music scene via the college airways. If it were not for them, we probably would not be listening to music by Phish, Dave Matthews Band, Bare Naked Ladies, and many others. It was a nice sight to see Bill Berry back again on drums after leaving the band due to health issues.
Happy Birthday Big Play Ray!

- Brad Wannamaker has taken a lot of criticism lately for not living up to his hype. I feel Thursday was his coming out party. He looked comfortable the entire game.
- Dejaun Blair was 3-13 from the floor and missed a bunch of easy buckets. He either hit a freshman wall or took the game too lightly. Either or, the problem needs corrected because he is a valuable player now and in the future.

Great quote from one of the kids tonight:
An older boy was sitting in the outer ring of the circle. A younger girl in front of him was kneeling and listening intently to the story. The boy could not see so he yelled out to the girl, "Hey ding dong. Sit down. I can't see." Bill Cosby was right. Kids say the darndest things.

Congrats to the New York Giants for winning their third Super Bowl. It was an exciting and entertaining Super Bowl to watch. My wife and I were on our feet pacing back and forth hoping for a Patriot’s loss.
I would like to send a thank you out to Bill Belichick for the Spygate scandal. Now I have a great example for when I teach my daughter the cheaters never win and winners never cheat life lesson. It was appropriate that the Patriots went 18-0 and lost the biggest game of the year. You know why: Cheaters never win.
Super Bowl Thoughts:
- What a catch by David Tyree to preserve the drive!
- What a move by Eli Manning to avoid the sack!
- The Patriots are sore losers. Running with their heads down towards the locker room before the last play of the game (even though the last play was meaningless).
- I wish the Steelers still had Plax.
- Why would Gisele be dating that loser, Tom Brady?
- The commercials were nothing to write home about.
- Earl Morrell, the back-up quarterback, of the undefeated Miami Dolphins was my father-in-law’s Little League Baseball coach.
- Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers still freakin’ rock!

- When mice are born, they are called kittens.
- Mice are born bald.
It's true. You never stop learning.
My Grandmother had surgery on her foot a few weeks ago. She has been laid up at home and is very limited in what she can do. In anticipation of her recuperation process and being bored out of her mind, she got a DVD player from my Dad and a Netflix subscription from my Uncle for Christmas. A few weeks ago, I stopped up and we created her account and her wishlist with Netflix (Note: She has a dial up connection. You can not imagine how painful it was to wait for the Internet sites to load. Her provider will not allow DSL or cable providers in the area). We added movies from the Musical and Western genres and I advised her that the next time I was visiting her we would add more movies to the wishlist.
That next time was this past weekend. She said she was in the mood for some Romances. So we logged on and selected the Romance genre and displayed a list of some popular Romances. But there was this one movie she wanted to see but could not remember the title. She said it starred that young man that just passed away (she meant Heath Ledger).
Me: "A Knight's Tale? "
Me: "10 Things I Hate About You? "
At this point I started to get a little embarrasssed and think to myself "Oh God, how can I get out of this converstion?"
Me: "Brokeback Mountain?"
Gram: "Yes, that's the one."
PS - I did not add it to the list. I love you Gram!

Thoughts from the game:
- This loss does not sit well with me. Why? We lost to Rutgers!
- I was glad to see Freshman Brad Wanamaker play some important minutes. We need him to have more experience in the event that Ronald Ramon or Keith Benjamin go down with an injury or have foul trouble.
- I can understand why fans want to see Freshman Gary McGhee more. He had a great game at South Florida when Dejuan Blair was in foul trouble. We saw some glimpses of his promise. But, come on, he shot an airball at the free throw line.
