Don’t Mind Us. We’re Only Bloggers.


I’m going to preface this with one simple thing…my beef with Dan Dakich didn’t start out with a personal dislike for the guy.  I don’t know him.  Heck, as a college basketball analyst, Dakich is in the top two or three at ESPN.  He does a ton of Wisconsin games. Continue reading

Random dream sequence with Stephen Piscotty


Just before I awoke this fine Sunday morning (actually, it’s rather gloomy out), I had a very random and vivid dream about…I can’t even begin to interpret it.
