How about them Jackrabbits?!?!! SDSU won their FCS playoff semi-final game against Montana State and now have a date with NDSU for the championship. I’ll be glued to the TV on January 8 when the Jacks and the Bison tangle for year-long bragging rights.

In other news, Christmas will be here soon. I am taking some much-needed vacation time to get a few things done around the ranch. It will be great to see the Ranchhands and other family members too.

What are your Christmas plans? Any travel? Sticking close to home?
