Walkin'

With all the predictions of a blizzard heading our way, we decided to postpone our departure for Denver and fly instead of drive. Tickets were expensive, but we opted to pay the price as we only visit Sabra’s family once a year. By the dire predictions of the meteorologists we didn’t have a chance of making it on the road, so we gambled on a chance by air.
Ha, ha!

Hawkeye wrestlers win third straight title

The Hawkeye wrestlers won their third straight Midlands title last week at Evanston, Illinois.
Iowa had three finalists; Matt McDonough (124), Brent Metcalf (149) and Jay Borschel (174).
It was good to see seniors Brent and Jay win championships, but for Matt, a redshirt freshman, the future looks good with his first title.
Nate Moore, another redshirt freshman wrestling at 133, finished sixth, losing to top-seeded Nick Fanthorpe from Iowa State, 2-1.
Sophomore Montell Marion also had a sixth-place finish and Derek St. John, a true freshman at 157, placed fifth wrestling unattached.

Hawkeye Women 1-2

The Hawkeye women traveled to Penn State last week, played their hearts out and if the referees wouldn’t have swallowed their whistles at the end of the game…
Please don’t spread this around, but back in the '70s there was a show that I watched called “Eight is Enough.”
It was a sitcom about a family of eight that got together because the parents remarried.
It had a lot of stories about life and the different challenges that come up. The current Hawkeyes are going through some major challenges, like depth, but still show up and play hard.
