A little off-topic, but are there any guitar players with experience modifying pickups on this forum? I received a new guitar for Christmas and it has naked humbuckers. I'm thinking about adding pickup covers, but there's a concern that it might alter the tone. Anyone?

Josh Parks will indeed return next fall for his senior season. Great news for Tommie Fans!

Maybe he can run for 300 yards in a loss to the Johnnies this year.  :P

That very well could happen. However, we will probably have the consolation of owning the second largest crowd for (as well as the largest) home game attendence in D3.  ;D
Looks like that record is going to fall.  The Cortaca Jug game (Ithaca vs. Cortland) is already claiming 30,000 tickets spoken for as of a month ago.

Say it ain't so! Ironically, Caruso will still be connected to the record as he is an alum of Ithaca.

So, #1 went to one of those giant music festivals a week ago in the bush where you camp for three days, stay drunk the whole time, listen to s**t techno music, live in filth and the parents pray the kids stay away from the ecstasy and other drugs.

There were a couple non-fatal overdoses, maybe three, which isnt so bad I suppose given there were supposedly 20k people at the festival.  One kid died, however, which caused quite a stir.  Well its just come out in the paper that his toxicology report pointed to tiger snake venom in his system.  He was too drunk to realise hed been bit by the worlds third deadliest snake and he was dead a few hours later.

Its funny. Drug overdoses? Its a small part of the whole thing, Dad.  Lighten up!

Death by snake?  Bugger that!  Im not going to any more festivals.

OZ,

You are a brave man! I am guessing you went as basically a chaperone for your kids? I had mentioned maybe going to one of those, and it was country music. My adult children (all in their 20's) totally discouraged me from going. Yet, they were going, how's that work?

#1 is 19.  What can I do?  I had considered locking her in a closet for another couple years but the Mrs said that was probably a bad idea.  I guess I have reached the point where the boat has been released and I have to hope I've taught it well enough to steer straight.  Sigh.

Damn.   Hawthorn's Tom Mitchell, last season's Brownlow Medalist (League MVP), snapped his leg today in the first pre-season training session (they had been doing some fitness work before the Xmas break, but that doesn't really count).  Out for twelve months, the whole year written off.  Apparently a complete double bone snap of his lower left leg.

It's going to be a tough season without him.

Major sense of relief in these parts that Jayme Closs was found alive yesterday. I drive through Barron quite a bit and the signs and ribbons have been out full force saying "Bring Jayme Home" for about 3 months since she was taken.

I lived in the St. Cloud area when Jacob Wetterling was abducted and I had a feeling this was going to end up the same way. Thank God it didn't.

A lot of information will be coming out on this case today I believe.

She, and her remaining family are going to need a lot of support to get through this. My heart just aches for her/them.

Amen. So far, this is a better outcome than I expected also.

At the same period as the Jayme Closs mystery, the community of Barron had another resident in the news.

Chris Kroeze was singing his way to the runner-up spot on "The Voice."

That's a lot of lows and highs for one small town all at the same time.

Huh?  What do you know?  We are talking JW Windsor, I assume.  He's sure bounced around a bit.
