Cy Young and Big XII North Champs

During the last week, a couple good things happened. Well, at least in the sporting world that I care about.

Zack Greinke, the crazy good young KC pitcher won the AL Cy Young in a landslide. And by crazy good, that is both crazy and good. As discussed in many other posts, Zack is a bit of a head case, but recovered well enough to strike out most of the American League, and quite a few of the National during interleague play... In an excellent week for him, he also married his high school sweetheart, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. I guess that's great if you like the perky blond swimsuit model-type. Whatever.

In a completely unrelated story, the Huskers won the Big XII North championship. That is kind of like me winning a foot race with Trent, Alex, Zach and Anna. And then having to race Mitch in the Championship game. Oh, well, at least Bret wasn't in the race. She might have smoked me.



  1. Was waiting for this one - congrats to Zach. That's great! Why is everybody looking at me?!?!
    I saw Skinny Timmy won the NL High Young.

  2. I heart Zach & the Huskers.
    Have you seen T-dog, he's pretty fast.

  3. Yea - but I'm was going to make it a longer race. Remember - I had to carry him in the mile that I ran with him. Note to all: if you are running with a 4 yr old, don't load him down with poptarts and Arby's Roast beef prior to the run....
