The Wausau East gym will be the site of "Volley For The Cure" tonight. The East & West volleyball teams meet in the last regular season match and all funds raised go to breast cancer research. This is the 3rd year of the event and they have drawn big crowds and raised alot of money. It all starts at 5:30 and there will be raffles, prizes and on-site mannograms available. And. if East wins the match they will clinch the outright Valley Conference Title.

The NFL is going to review the catch rule that cost Calvin Johnson a TD and The Lions a win earlier this season. As they should. If a reciever comes down in the end zone in possession of the ball, its a touchdown, end of story.
Songs of The Day (from my I-pod)
Good Rockin Tonight-Wynonie Harris (1949) one of the original "rock" songs. Of course "rockin" was a euphemism for something else. Elvis did this at the original Sun sessions but it didnt do nearly as well as this version
Good Thing-Paul Revere & The Raiders (1966) a severly underated band, the Raiders were known for their on-screen and stage hi-jinks but they could rock when they wanted. Mark Lindsay was a teen idol but he could bring it as a front-man. the album that this came on "Spirit of 67" was the first LP I ever bought...and I still have it.
