I must admit, I used to live in a party pad that had a garage full of signs. Stop signs, street signs, Railroad Crossing signs, yield signs, etc. I was not the one who procured these nor do I know which one of my roommates did, I just remember they were always there adorning the walls of the fourplex garage.
Animal Planet will be airing the story they filmed here in Wichita on searching for "Bigfoot". They apparently searched the Cheney Lake area, the El Dorado Lake area, the Kingman area and My favorite place they searched was the Big Ditch....so many places to hide there. Then on Monday's Jeopardy program...Wichitan Matthew Linnabary competes! He's a Kapaun-Mt. Carmel grad and a Creighton (?!!?!) grad. We'll have to see how he does.
So KSU knocked off 6th ranked OSU and will surely be ranked this week. WSU just won an historical 15th consecutive game and is ranked 8th, KU unfortunately lost at home to San Diego State over the weekend and may slip from their number 16 ranking. Sad to see KU's 68 game "at home" winning streak come to an end. It's a good day though, when you can say Kansas has three such talented basketball teams!
The Eagles have released some big records during their long career, but nothing like this: A gigantic vinyl replica of 1977's Hotel California album has been erected on the roof of the newly renovated Los Angeles-area venue The Forum in honor of the band's upcoming six-show residency there. It is said to be the largest vinyl LP ever built -- which is 407 feet in diameter and covers a total of 5.7 acres. It actually spins around at 17 mph Check out this video of it's construction, how cool is this?
I love this kinda stuff! A woman from Tacoma, Washington won the biggest prize in "The Price Is Right" history!! An Audi R8 V8 Spyder Quattro S Tronic, valued at a cool $157,300. Here's how it all went down:
Fans could see from the rafters that the Shocker's rythmn was a bit off during yesterday's WSU-Davidson game. Turns out an egg roll was to blame. Cleanthony Early managed to be the "player of the game" yesterday, despite battling food poisoning. The Shockers showed they had grit and determination as they went on to 13 and 0 yesterday. That was some MTXE for sure. GO SHOCKS as you enter conference play on the road!
If you are not a fan of wrapping presents, but are a fan of saving lives...let volunteers do the gift wrapping while you donate blood this Friday from 7am to 4pm. at the American Red Cross, 707 North Main. Just bring along up to 10 presents you want wrapped!
When the Shockers beat Tennesse they will move to 10 and 0...a school record. The Shockers were denied the record last year, as they were 9 and 0 when they played Tennesse in Tennesse and lost. Be part of what is expected to be the largest crowd to date at IBA tomorrow and let's help the Shocker men set two records at once! GO SHOCKS!
Last Sunday night, during Kansas City-based news station KSHB 41 Action New’s weekly sports show which runs after NBC’s Sunday Night Football, sportscaster Jack Harry referred to the University of Kansas men’s basketball team as what sounded like “Gayhawks” as opposed to “Jayhawks.” The phrase “Gayhawk” has been used as a pejorative term toward that fan base and Harry has a reputation in that market for tweaking the KU fanbase. The video is here for you to judge:
It's been a long time since this has happened. 1964? Not sure if it has happened since 1964, but today the USA Today poll of coaches ranks the Shockers # 8 and the AP poll ranks the Shockers #12...KU is ranked # 13 in both polls. The Shockers need to win against Tennesse this Saturday to be 10-0 and beat the school record. It would also be sweet as Tennesse kept them from 10 and 0 last year. Hope renaming a portion of Waterman around the arena, "Play Angry Place" will help. Thank you Antoine Carr for suggesting that mantra!
For those Fox listeners who have been the catalyst for changing the name of our airport to honor President Eisenhower, be encouraged that the next step is near. The Airport Naming Advisory Committee will have its first meeting next week. Not sure if there is a prescribed number of meetings or if we get it done, when we get it done. The committee advises the council as to their findings and then the council will vote on naming the airport for Eisnehower...not sure when, but the wheels are turning.
I have figured out a way to make a Christmas tree really spectacular in terms of brightness and beauty. Don't choose between clear or colored lights for the tree, use some of both, in close proximity to each other. The effect is really cool. However, don't use so many lights you overload your circuits and use a power strip rather than a bunch of extension cords.
Congratulations to the Shocker men's basketball team and to Coach Marshall on the great season they are having and this morning's news that they are ranked #10 in the country in the coaches poll and #11 in the AP poll. Thanks for bringing honor to Wichita! We all truly love you guys!!! Go Shocks!!!
