Quick reminder: I’ll be in Vermillion tomorrow (Saturday) for the University of South Dakota vs. North Dakota football game at noon. I’ll have a live blog right here on this site, and barring any technical difficulties (like 2 weeks ago), I’ll start the blog at 11:30 a.m. with some pre-game goodies.
For now, let’s get to the linkage.
** Every once in a while, you’ll find a hidden gem on the Internet. And here’s one of those gems. A Web site solely devoted to TV theme songs. Awesome.
** One of the greatest hockey blogs out there is no more. And the story of its semi-demise is sad and absurd. I’ll let you read the full story, but in short, the guy running Covered In Oil was kicked out of the Edmonton Oilers press box. And not in a nice way. Here’s a question: What would stop someone from sitting in the stands and updating their blog via phone? With the crazy technology available these days, organizations need to wake up and get in tune with the 21st Century.
** Speaking of available technology, check out this guy at the North Carolina-Kentucky men’s basketball game from Tuesday night. Take a guess at what (or who) he’s trying to get a shot of with his camera phone?
** Watching the last few minutes of the UAB-Arizona men’s game from Tuesday night had me both shaking my head, laughing and screaming. Check out the video below to see why.
** Future Great West Conference opponent for USD, New Jersey Institute of Technology lost its 35th straight game, falling to Penn State 74-47 on Tuesday night. Seriously, how bad are things right now for NJIT? Since moving up to Division I, the Highlanders are 5-55. And included in that was a 0-29 record last season. Ouch.
** Wait a second. Saturday’s football game between the University of Washington (0-10) and Washington State (1-10) is being televised nationally? Huh? I know it’s a pretty big rivalry game, but am I missing something here?
** Local alert: Avon’s Matt Dykstra commits to Dakota Wesleyan to play basketball. Dude is 6-foot-7 and is a beast on the court.

TGIF Recommended Tune
For some reason, I found myself singing “Wishing Well” by Trence Trent D’arby at work the other day. Don’t ask me why. Because frankly I have no clue where I heard the song. On the bright side, at least it wasn’t Milli Vanilli.
