Once again, no Nebraska game.

This sucks, but... it’s how life goes sometimes. This year seems to have a lot of it. The good news is that we’re getting through this year healthy (right?) and next year might be better (I am not tempting the gods).

There are some decent games today... at least in name if nothing else.

Shitty News Of The Day

What to Watch

Michigan State at Michigan - this looks like an awful game, but it is an early rivalry game

Purdue at Illinois - two not very good teams, might be a decent game

Memphis at Cincinnati - The Bearcats are in the top 10.

Indiana at Rutgers - can the Scarlet Knights win two games in a row? Can Noah Vedral lead them to victory?

Northwestern at Iowa - rock fighty Big Ten punty football at its best!

Texas at Oklahoma State - watch the Longhorns not be back again this week

Ohio State at Penn State - this is the big one of the day. The Buckeyes should roll easily, but... we’ll see!

I Have A Book Out!

My memoir - Been Dead, Never Been To Europe - is available on Amazon.

Book Description

Jon Johnston was an active, healthy adult when he dropped dead suddenly of a widowmaker heart attack. He was not expected to live, after being dead for more than 20 minutes, but if he did survive, his brain would forever be damaged due to oxygen deprivation.Alternating between humor, sadness, and anger at his body’s betrayal, Jon takes us with him as he puts his life back together. At the beginning, he sees the trauma as a minor inconvenience and expects a speedy recovery. As he realizes the damage to his heart is permanent, he is hit with another setback when he is diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, leaving him with memory loss, debilitating headaches, and a loss of identity. Tasks that had been trivial had become onerous endeavors, and his life became an unexpected challenge.

Been Dead, Never Been to Europe offers a real-life view of what it takes to rebuild after a devastating event, to accept an unexpected present and future, and to discover a new identity. Been Dead, Never Been to Europe will appeal to readers who seek memoirs of resilience, and to those whose own lives have been affected by unexpected trauma.

Let’s Stay In Touch!
