How good are the Badgers? We will learn more abou Bucky today in the Big Ten opener against Michigan State at Camp Randall. It looks like Scott Tolzein can be the real deal and if the running backs can hang on to the football the offense should be ok. Love the Recievers! On D there are more questions so let's see how they work against the run today. Game time 11 am on WSAU.
Prince Fielder continues his onslaught...another 3 run homer last night. Mike Cameron also hit a 3 run blast in a win over the Phillies. Manny Parra had another good outing for his 11th win.
Stratford, Edgar and Marathon all won last night. Rapids spoiled the DC Everest homecoming 14-9 and East & West both lost as well. Wausau Newman tries to go 5-0 today against Thorp.
The Central Wisconsin Saints scored 4 powerplay goals Friday night in a 5-1 over the Tri-City Icehawks in Bay City Michigan. The two teams play again tonight.
Songs of the day
Clear Blue Skies-CSNY (1988) a Graham Nash tune from the disappointing American Dream CD. It's one of Nash' idealistic anti-poluution songs.
Clementine-Tom Lehrer (1959) from the live Lp "An Evening Wasted with Tom Lehrer" comes this pungent rebuke of the folk song trend. Lehre was a witty satirist with the dryest sense of humor who will ever encounter but his songs give an interesting look at that time in our history.
