Morning Coffee - Remember When Edition

Nebraska lost to Creighton last night, 9-2. The game was played at Rosenblatt, in front of 18,316 fans, the second-largest crowd for a college baseball game this season.

Creighton has an eight-game winning streak, having won 19 or their last 20 games. That's hot. Nebraska has a two-game winning streak broken, but who cares. The Blue Jays take two out of three against the Huskers. That sucks.

Nebraska plays it's final three games of the season this weekend against the struggling Kansas Jayhawks. We'll make the Big 12 tourney. We'll make the post-season. But a lot about how we're going to do in either will be determined by what the Huskers do on the road this weekend.

Nebraska is hosting a softball regional. You knew that, didn't you?

I like the "Remember When" bit over at Big Red Network, but it's just a reminder of how old I am compared to most of the rest of the blogosphere.

The point of "Remember When..." is not to go for things from way back in the day that nobody can remember.

No one can remember life before the 90's? What the hell was everyone doing to themselves? It's not like the 70's and 80's were the 60's, man. Remind me to include more 'Cheech and Chong' and Monty Python references next season. The youth of the blogosphere need them.

This is what it comes to in the off-season. The guys at the M Zone are so bored, they're posting pictures of a pit bull having a run-in with a porcupine. You shouldn't look at those pictures and think "stupid dog". You should look at them and think "stupid dog owner".

And if that's bad enough, the guy at the Oracle of Cheese writes about his dislocated finger. Awful layout on the blog, but I like reading his stuff.

The Crocked Blog is posting pictures of ISU Cyclone license plates.

As for how bad it's gotten for me - I'm sitting here watching Red Dawn. It's great, cheesy stuff - Charlie Sheen's first movie role. An awful movie, but full of bad Russians (speaking of "Remember When"), bad dialogue, bad Russian accents and translations, but lots of explosions and Commies getting what's coming to them for invading the good ol' U.S. Ah, the good old days when we knew who the enemy was.

Oh, and Lea Thompson. Well, maybe it wasn't that bad.
