Print Story At least one Big Ten team can win a bowl game

but we know it's not Michigan.

Plus, holidays are over, Bohnanza, too much plumbing work and less.

Poll: Resolutions?

Yesterday was Mrs. Ha's family's holiday party, it went well, and now we can say the holidays are over, though the kids don't go back to school until Thursday.

I watched some of the USC-Michigan game, at least the first half. Lots of 3 and out, it looks like it picked up in the second half. Good thing for the Big Ten that Penn State is around.

I had to do a surprising amount of plumbing this weekend. Both our toilets clogged (maybe too much fiber lately), so there was plunging to do, and we gave Mrs. Ha's mom and family a handheld shower, which really helps get Mrs. Ha's mom clean, as she can no longer stand in the shower. I had to install it, five minutes with teflon tape.

We finally broke out Bohnanza on Sunday. It's a bit advanced for five year old, but it's a darn good game, who knew bean farming was so intense?

In other gaming news I was able to play a Panzer Grenadiers Airborne scenario while the kids were away, and write up it for the geek. Hexity goodness!

New Year's Eve was low key, after the kids were in bed we did our chores, when watched Twilight Zones and drank faux-Baileys. We did the same last night after we got back from Buffalo, and it's leadingup to a nice 2007.

If a little hard to sell to new people to play. "It's a game about bean farming..."

Yeah, maybe the girls will want to play tonight by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Jan 02, 2007 at 08:17:36 AM EST
though we played open handed, which takes away from it.

stupid wisconsin...argh

so I was thinking about making the following resolution: I will have sex with 6 women in 2007. Might be kinda unrealistic tho.

ah, the big ten ... by BlueOregon (2.00 / 0) #7 Tue Jan 02, 2007 at 08:49:17 AM EST

... talk about a weak bowl season for them. The best they can do now is 3-4 (if Ohio State wins), since Minnesota, Iowa, Purdue, and Michigan lost.

The Big 12 hasn't been so hot, either (wins for Texas, Texas Tech and Ok. State, but down the tubes for Oklahoma, Nebraska, K-State, Missouri, and Texas A&M). In terms of percentages, the WAC's 3-1 isn't bad. The Pac 10 and SEC are also going about 50-50 at this point, but the SEC does have a few games left.

As for your sex goal -- well, one every two months, and if you can fit conjoined twins in there you get 2-for-1 and reach your goal much more easily. Or just really *really* lower your standards.

Oh, and, Go Badgers.

i don't get out much by alprazolam (4.00 / 1) #13 Tue Jan 02, 2007 at 10:48:34 AM EST
and even though I have a cavalier attitude about making out with chicks, I'm not really the same wrt sex.

at least the Gophers epic loss got Glen Mason the boot. Never liked him much.

When I'm imprisoned as an enemy combatant, will you blog about it?

What a hoot, the guy was too confused to find the sidelines and had to watch the game from the booth! Boy, I can't wait until next year when he's a complete slobbering dottering senile chucklehead!

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob
