In the sports world, the Blackhawks have managed to climb back into the top spot in the NHL with a 4-2 win over Calgary last night. I couldn't watch it because of the stupid WGN vs. WGN America thing, but I'll assume it was a very good game based on the score and the periodic check ins I did last night. Also, the Colts won a game and the Packers lost, both very surprisingly to me. I don't think it will change anything come January, though. The NBA still hasn't started yet, so I can't really say anything one way or the other about that yet.
Purdue has me worried sick. Blew a 20 point lead to Xavier and a 15 point lead to Butler. I hate to say it, but I don't think we're going to beat IU this year. At least not at their place. The only plus is that we get them in Mackey first, so maybe that will give the guys a chance to settle down and shrug off playing in Assembly Hall.* Just trying to look at the bright side.
*By the way Indiana, get more creative with your names. You know Illinois calls their football and basketball stadiums Memorial and Assembly, right? You're not even unique in your own conference.
Also, in honor of the news yesterday, I present to you one of my favorite blogs that I don't usually acknowledge: Kim Jong-Il Looking at Things.
