Now if there had been any retrievers in the pool, you'd be winning it all. Wonderful logic, I might add. I laughed out loud and all your reasons.


We actually talked about that -- why there aren't more mascots named after labs, terriers, etc.? I mean, ducks? Come on!


Here's to the mythical creatures--Rock Chalk Jayhawk! KU!

Watch out for the Golden Bucked Toothed Rodents in the next couple of years.
Rock on Tubby Smith...your loss Kentucky!


Holy crap, how does my hockey-focused geek bro know more about coaching changes in basketball than I do? I guess I missed that news yesterday. Very interesting. I actually have always liked Tubby and think that he has gotten a bum rap at Kentucky. I happen to have his autograph in my office at Illinois, thanks to a Kentucky fan/parent I know who shook him down for it at the Final Four events in Indy a few years back. I would like to see good things for MN basketball and The Barn.


Loved the DOGSWIN idea....am thinking about possibilities for next year. How about a Which Mascot is Most Edible bracket? Oregon would have been a great pick this year, and the imaginary mascots are just as interesting to think about.


Yes, which would taste better -- a jayhawk or a hokie?


I think the hokie's taste has real possibilities, and the element of surprise. Admittedly, I'm biased because living in Virginia I see so many bumper stickers with that little muscular bird. It's a taunt, and I want to eat their mascot for it. The Jayhawk is midwestern fare, and likely to taste bland. Now, a Jayhawk hotdish? That's a different matter.

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
