Anything that can top this? 

That road needs a do-over. If itís in front of your house, I smell an assessment coming.
Thankfully it's not my house.  I pulled it off twitter.  Faunch nailed the location: Highland Parkway just south of St. Kate's.

That is the block my sister lives on. Roads in this part of town are ridiculous. I keep trying different routes, it does not matter.

My move to an apartment from my very high maintenance single family home is looking better every day. Underground heated parking and the parking lot is generally plowed with a path to the street by the time Iím ready to go.

Only bad part is street plowing. In Woodbury the city was all over it. In St. Paul not so much. All wheel drive helps.

Sweet tube chute. You must be the most popular dad in the neighborhood.

Congratulations to Northwestern for a masterfully played game. One team came ready to play. The other, I donít know what to say. Mystifying.

I wish Colplin would stick with the white headband. Makes it a lot easier to pick him out on the small screen.

Johnnies dismantle Bethel 82-49. Who saw that coming?

Go Augies!  Augsburg up 46-32 at the half over Tommies.

Freddie Gillespie update:  He had 8 points (all in the first half), 7 boards and 2 blocks as the Bears routed Oklahoma and moved into a first place tie in the Big 12. 

Highlights including Freddies dunk here: https://twitter.com/BaylorMBB/status/1090103917847834624

Freddie played a great first half. Fun to see a Woodbury kid playing big time hoops.

Itís so cold even Chuck Norris is staying inside.

I think the corner that got pushed was Nate Wright, who had Pearson covered like a glove and may well have intercepted the pass or for sure made the play incomplete.

Krause was the Free Safety who was pointing out the obvious penalty. The ref who didn't make the call and took a whiskey bottle to the head was Armen Terzian. For some reason I have always remembered his name.  :E

Yes, Nate Wright.

Armen Terzian is the answer to one of my favorite Minnesota sports trivia questions. I have always remembered that name as well.

Can we be adult and not make fun of KIDS?

There is usually more to the story. These are kids trying to find their way.  The path is not always linear.

Oz:
Nobody has anything to post so:
My local adult beverage outlet has Yalumba Shiraz on sale for $9 and change per bottle.
FYI I did not purchase (or shoplift) any.   ;)

About the same price youíll pay for Yalumba here.  Itís not bad.  Mrs Oz will buy a few bottles for cooking (adding to pasta sauce and such). The physics never seems to work out as there should be more sauce with the volume of wine at her disposal.  A not insignificant volume always seems to go missing. It must be highly evaporative.

Perhaps Mrs. Oz is disappearing a not insignificant amount during preparation.

Just returned from SJU at Mac.

Mac is terrible. They have one player who belongs in the regular player rotation of an MIAC team. And he is asked to do so much that his effectiveness suffers..

I hope the new coach can recruit some guys who belong.
Are you talking about Ferm or Henningfield? Ferm was absolutely amazing at Northwestern earlier this season, 10-10 from inside the arc and 3-7 from outside. Best Scot I've seen since Ben Van Thorre.

Henningfield.  Ferm had 12 but did not impress. Only took 5 shots. Like most of Mac intimidated by SJU length.
