Hawk women win battle

IOWA CITY– To say the Iowa win last week against South Dakota State, 82-69, at Carver was a knock-down, bang-up game might be an understatement.
Morgan Johnson went down with a shoulder injury. Kamille Wahlin suffered a deep thigh bruise and Theairra Taylor was lying on the floor with a banged-up left knee.
Morgan and Kamille were back in later while Theairra will have her left knee checked out. The 5-11 freshman tore her right ACL her senior year in high school and has been wearing a knee brace.
The bad news is Theairra will be out for the season.

Hawkeyes stepped it up

IOWA CITY– The Hawkeyes stepped up with the absence of Anthony Tucker and won their second game in a row last week, knocking off South Carolina State 82-69.
It’s kind of like what Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz talks about, which is the “next man in” principle.
Anthony was Iowa’s second leading scorer so some of the other Hawkeyes needed to step up and make plays.

Food for Thought

There are a few changes I'd really like to see in the new year. I'm not talking about New Year's resolutions. I learned a long time ago that I'm no good at keeping them and, by mid-February, I find myself riddled with guilt and self-recrimination. I am, however, really good at thinking up things that OTHER people ought to do to make the world a better place. Because it's winter and I have lately succumbed to the temptation to dabble in the couch-potato lifestyle, I have been watching more television than I have at any other time in my life.

Walkin

We drove to the Chicago area to visit my parents the weekend before Christmas.
Mom and Dad, ages 83 and 85 respectively, are doing well.
Mom is “deaf in one ear and can’t hear out the other” as Dad puts it, but with the help of hearing aids she can still listen to television and hold a conversation. Every once in a while she’ll say something that makes you wonder if she understands what is being talked about, but for the most part she keeps up.
She also gets around.
