Pluto & Mickey...Boiler Fans?

Put this in your college football pipe and smoke it...The Orlando Sentinel has picked Purdue #1 in the nation!! Purdue Coach Joe Tiller joked, "All my relatives in Orlando came through for me. All the Disney characters came through. I'm sure they lobbied hard and got us positioned up there at No. 1. So I want to thank Pluto and Mickey and Donald, and all my relatives."

Even though I'm a huge Purdue fan, I think this is a tad optimistic, but it certainly is a very possible scenario. Though Purdue ended up 7-5 last year, they weren't that far from going undefeated...only 14 points came between them and a perfect season. We'll see.

One thing is for sure, expectations are sky high in West Lafayette this fall. The previous record for season ticket sales was 43,796 set in 2000-01 when a Drew Brees led Purdue team returned to the Rose Bowl for the first time since Bob Griese and the 1966-67 Boilers beat USC 14-13 in Pasadena. Last week season ticket sales had already reached 44,555 and are sure to climb even higher now that students are back on campus.

Pre-season hype is OK,

Recognition and respect in arguably the nation's best state for f'ball recruits is even better,

Delivering on all of these high expectations would be best of all.

Check back in January.

 

Bigtime Fill-up

Well the Suburban was getting low on gas, so I figured I better go fuel up. When I found a relatively good ppg at the local Quiktrip I (without doing the math) decided to fill up.

The end result?

38.361 gallons x $2.399 per gallon = $92.03!!

Can you dust off a blog?

Well, I'm thinking about dusting off this old site and starting to blog again. It's been almost a year and a half. So much has happened in that time.

It's probably been the hardest year of my life. I'll unpack all that later...

I'm trying to "design" a little bit better looking site than I've had in the past. I also hope to develop a great set of links including a blog roll. I welcome your comments on my design, and on anything else, for that matter!
