Speaking of red carpets, some here might enjoy this arrangement: https://www.facebook.com/MusicBustedShow/videos/614717812428425/

Someone has had an unhealthy obsession of making sure to ping my and, it appears but I'm not certain, duffman's karma every day.  Even Sundays.  And it's been steady for the last month or so.  For the life of me I can't figure out who it is.



It's me, like totally. (Said in my best valley voice.) :D

In response to the latest podcast - I busted a gut when Keith proposed moving the Stagg Bowl to "a warm weather destination, like Detroit".

Here's an off topic question. When you zoom in moderately on the Twin Cities using Google Maps, Minneapolis and St. Paul are highlighted; at the next level down in magnification, Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Minnetonka are highlighted; then Minneapolis, St. Paul, Minnetonka, and Bloomington are highlighted at next level down in magnification. I always thought of Minneapolis, St. Paul, and Bloomington as forming the "Tri-Metro Area." What makes Minnetonka so special (at least according to Google Maps)?

Thanx for sharing Oz. This was kind of revealing - Of course I knew there was "money in the 'burbs", but this lays it out in black and white. I just so happen to live in a older Northern suburb, just outside the loop, and our combined income is higher than the average listed. I would never have guessed that, looking at some of the homes in my neighborhood. Obviously, we most have a home on the "good side of the tracks", or Central Avenue, take your pick.

Where's Minnetonka?  ;D

Hobart grad Ali Marpet is doing very, very well. Started at center and now a left guard. He is a team captain with the Bucs and under contract until 2023. Probably the top DIII player currently in the NFL.

I saw Cuomoro (sp?) from Whitewater catch a pass in the losing effort against San Fran.

Yeah, I knew that was coming.  :-*

Why don't you Bethel folks just go back to worrying about tweaking the Pool C criteria to fit your liking?  :o

Hey, I resemble that!  ;D

Does that make him the Judy Garland of the board?  :)

Having never met Oz in person, that's quite a stirring visual image - Now I just can't un-see him wearing glittery ruby red shoes.  :D

Thanks, 57, yes, all is ok with us. We’re actually in State College, Pennsylvania at the moment dropping off #1 who is doing a month exchange at Penn State and then staying in NYC for the summer.  Mrs Oz and the other two Ozletts head up to Rapids to visit my folks for a while while I return to the grind stone.

The fires are pretty bad but I can’t help but look at them with a wry smile (ignoring, for the moment those under threat). Western Australia hasn’t had a major bushfire since 1961 when they had a big one. They’ve done controlled burning every year since and kept their very dry state blaze free. The eastern states don’t follow the same danger management of the under brush and we’ve have one major blaze after another. I posted her seven or eight years ago when we had a major blaze near melbourne and over 200 people died in the fires. The govt screams “never again!” and vows to better manage the undergrowth and yet here we are again.

Anyways, onwards and upwards.

Hope you're enjoying the wintery weather - ha! Glad to hear you and yours are fine with all the fires.

It has been immoral, illegal and/or politically incorrect to cut down a tree in California for many years.
Nuff said.

57 - so where does all the dry stuff come from that burns? Is it all just "natural" dead fall that no body uses for firewood?

Huh, the Vikings win in OT and the board is quiet. Only the second game I watched this year - and I was certain they were going to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory.

Wishing everyone on board a very Merry Christmas. Safe travels to all!

In the podcast they started to talk through the top teams in D3. When I posted earlier about this I did not put out my opinion concerning the final order of the top teams. I'll do that now.

1. North Central
2. Mount Union
3. Whitewater
4. St. John's
5. Wheaton
6. Muhlenberg
7. UMHB
8. Delaware Valley
9. Salisbury

As they mentioned when discussing the options, it will be real interesting to see how all the voters see who beat who and by what degree to bolster their position. It is also my opinion that any of the top 5 could have ended up in the Stagg Bowl, depending on who played who in the playoffs. It's been a great year for D3 football!

Starting to look like Mount Union might be the #2 team if UWW continues to sit on the egg.
