The Paul Bunyan Ax game is always one of my favorite games of the year. I've had the chance to attend a number of them and the unbridled joy that the winning team has when they parade the Ax around the stadium is one of the things that makes college football special. You can hear tomorrows game on WSAU beginning with the pre game show at 9am.
The Tigers dismantled the Yankees in four straight. And it looks like the Cardinals again for the National League. That should be a competitive series but I've got to go with the Tigers.
Songs of The day (from my I-pod)
LA Freeway-Guy Clark (1971) Jerry Jeff Walker made the song popular but everybody should go back and discover Guy Clark if you havent already. One of the great American Songwriters
LA Woman-The Doors (1971) Jim Morrison's last great masterpiece...there was no one like him
