Tricky Dick's Bowl Bonanza Is Up!!
The 2010 Bowl Bonanza contest is ready to rumble. Same rules as always. This is one of the BEST contests of the year, so make your picks and don't be shut out. Last year it was Tricky Dick The WINNER, with Alexis second, Bryce third, Tytan fourth and Eric fifth. It was a very exciting race. As always, we pick against the spread to make it more exciting and competitive. The favored team is followed by a {-#}, if it is a -3, that means the team is favored by 3 points. Missouri is favored over Iowa, -1. Deadline is Tuesday, December 21 before the first major bowl game.
A Wonderful Afternoon...
I had a great day, yesterday. Dale came over and spent the afternoon in Nevada. (I think Janet had bridge club?) We both have read a new book on Coach Vince Lombardi and last week, HBO, had a super 90 minute documentary called Lombardi. It really brought back some great coaching memories for the both of us. We also synced up our IPADS and had a royal battle of Scrabble. I hate to say that Dale won by a few points. I had a big lead until he played the word "quiet" for mega points. I was stunned. Who would believe that Dale even knew that word? Dale? Quiet? Anyway, Cassidi (age 5) gave Dale some tips on how the IPAD works and the girls had fun playing music and showing some of their games to Uncle Dale.  It was a wonderful winter afternoon, lots of popcorn and tall tales. Dale's eye surgery seems to be improving. Dale was in great spirits has he even got paid his NCAA Fantasy Football Contest winnings, a cool $40.

The Next Generation Of Basketball!!
On RT's recent swing back to Iowa, he made a BIG effort to watch and enjoy some high quality basketball played by Zach (Tim's), Nicole (Tim's) and Max (Tammi's). They are all doing VERY WELL. Here are a couple of photos. Zach is in 8th grade, Nicole is a sophomore, and Max is a sophomore, I think. They are all having a GREAT SEASON, and I am sure there are others hitting the court. (ex. Melody) Photos by Randy. Send photos, or info and I will publish them on this site.

Josh, Mandy, Tanner, Travis, Lorrie, Brett, Jenna and Randy were there cheering on Central Missouri State, but the Mules football season ended Saturday with a 37-20 setback to the Bearcats

Trick Or Treat!!
We had a memorable Halloween night in Central Iowa a couple of weeks ago. Gwen and Grandpa took the girls around town on a beautiful autumn night. Johnny stayed home and ate the candy. (We had no trick or treaters, maybe Johnny should have turned on the porch light?) Gwen dressed as an escaped convict, which is interesting as we live close to the Story County jail. Alexis was a super tough "Batgirl" and Cassidi went as "Jesse", the cowgirl toy from Toy Story. (no problem for her finding cowgirl stuff to wear). Grandpa went as an over the hill, overweight, coach and teacher. He was easily recognized by most and he was proud of all of the exercise he was getting until it was pointed out that he consumed way more calories than those that were burned. It sure was a fun and special evening.
First Time In School History!!
The University of Central Missouri Mules football squad will play West Texas A&M this Saturday at 1:00 p.m., in an NCAA-II playoff game at Walton Stadium/Kennedy Field. It is the Mules’ (9-2, 8-1 MIAA) second NCAA Playoff appearance in school history (2002), and the first home playoff game ever at UCM. The Buffaloes (8-3, 8-2 LSC) are in the playoffs for the fifth time in the last six seasons. The Super Region Four bracket features three MIAA teams and three Lone Star Conference teams, with the top two seeds receiving first round byes. Abilene Christian is the number one seed, awaiting the winner of the Mules-Buffaloes contest on November 27. Texas A&M-Kingsville is the second seed. The Javelinas will play the winner of an All-MIAA game as sixth-seeded Missouri Western will play at No. 3 seed Northwest Missouri State this Saturday. Congrats To Josh and Mandy, Go Mules!!

Another Tryon Will Join The Family!!
Jeff and Jodi have informed me that Josh and Heidi are expecting their second child in March!! GREAT NEWS as their daughter Jillian will now have a playmate. This will be grandchild NO. 2 for Jeff and Jodi and it will make Gaylord a great grandfather again. Congrats to all!!!

Go, Go Clones!!
Dale and Janet are taking the train to Denver to cheer on their beloved Cyclones this weekend. It is the California Zephyr, owned by Amtrak. This is an ISU sponsored event. Go Clones!!
Tough Loss For Mules!!
Mules football saw the outright MIAA football championship slip away in heartbreaking fashion Saturday afternoon at Walton Stadium-Kennedy Field, when the defending league champion and NCAA-II national champion Bearcats of Northwest Missouri State scored as time expired. A 45-yard field goal sent the Mules to a 17-16 defeat in front of a record breaking crowd of 13,096 on Senior Day.

The loss was the first in nine conference games for the Mules, who came into the game ranked sixth in the AFCA D-II Poll, while their overall record slipped to 9-2.

The Mules, who were second in the regional adobe reader iconrankings last week, will be idle next Saturday (Nov. 13th). Mules expect to receive a spot in the NCAA-II Playoffs starting November 20th, with the official announcement coming on Sunday, November 14th.

Glidden continues it's run at a state title, The Hawks go to Indiana and The Clones have an epic game with Nebraska, but the BIGGEST of all might be taking place in Central Missouri. The 9-1 Mules take on Josh's old team, the NWMS Bearcats of Maryville for the championship. The Omaha World Herald has a GREAT article on Josh as he takes on his old team. CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE STORY.  (For you out of staters, Josh is Mandy's husband and son in law of Randy)

Feeling Good!!
In the historic mid-term election of 1994, the Republican "Revolution" picked up 54 seats in the House Of Representatives. It was such a huge take over, it was highlighted in history text books. Last night, it looks like the Republicans gained 65 seats!! The largest mid-term gain since 1932 and largest ever since 1948 presidential year. Wow, and the Republicans made huge gains in governorships and the US Senate. In Iowa, no more Culver, those three State Supreme court judges are kicked out, but half of Iowa has not figured things out yet. Come On, Man!! Republicans made big gains in state legislatures across the US, too. I just love John Kasich, the new governor of Ohio, Rubio in Florida and Rand Paul in Kentucky. So I hope many of you voted. Obama's big agenda has to be at least slowed down. Just think, no more Nancy Pelosi. It feels pretty good. Maybe now congress will read the bill before voting on it.

Tales From The Great White North (Dakota)
First off, The HIghwayman is making a quick trip to Iowa this weekend for the first day of hunting season with his boys. A quick trip to the dentist too and a few other loose ends to tighten up. Second, RT sent the following stories and pictures: "My Key Oil Company boss was driving home after work and  hit this male moose coming out of the ditch going 70 mph at night.  He had no chance to miss it, totaling his 2010 truck!  In the last 2 months, 3 moose have been killed just east of where I live!!!!!!!  The other picture is very amazing as this elk was shot in North Dakota, also nearby and while taking the picture a hungry mountain lion was approaching to this freshly killed elk not knowing of the hunter or the camera in the area!  Amazing, but true!  These pictures were in the major papers up here! Still a blizzard today until 6 pm. I made it to work & lucky to have only a training classroom workshop! I will be a teacher/trainer for all the new hires in the next 6 months.. Kind of like a driver's ed instructor as I have to ride with & evaluate skills on my assigned potential Key employees! Take care from the tundra"........RT
Football Playoffs!!
Van Meter, ADM and Glidden advance to the second round. See scores......
Dale Spends Night In Hospital!!
Dale spent Friday and Friday night in the Mary Greeley hospital with severe kidney stone problems. He has been taking pain pills every 3 hours for 9 days. After a rather major procedure, Saturday morning, the doctors promised he would be dismissed before the 11:00 a.m. ISU kickoff. He had one heck of a time getting the bureaucracy taken care of in time. He did get to see one of the greatest victories in ISU history today as the Clones shocked Texas. Dale is home, but he still has some major issues to face.
UNION 28-14 over VINTON

8-0 Union, La Porte City (Todd and Sherry's) vs 4-4  Vinton-Shellsburg (Tammi and Craig's and Max) I got the following from Todd Parker: Hey this is Todd Parker from La Porte City.  I  just wanted to let you know there is a big game tonight for Union La Porte’s Team (8-0) again Vinton Shellsburg’s (4-4). This is at our brand new field.  We are district champs for the 1st time ever and 1st seed in the playoff’s but got stuck facing Williamsburg and Solon in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, they will be tough.  The Tryons (Todd, Tyler, Jerry) all know our coach Joe Hadachek from Drake & BV.  He has a cool web page He has taken over our program 4 years ago and has had them in the playoffs the last 3 years in a row.  His son is  Trev (soph) is our starting quarterback.  I think Max plays on the  Just before the varsity game.   We have a outstanding running back Wes Burnside (Jr.).  Last week against the other top team in the district, Marion, we beat them for the 1st time ever, 45-39.  It was their 1st regular season loss in 3 years.  Burnside had a school record 318 yards on 57 carries.  Have you ever heard of a back having that many carries before.  We think it was a state record.  He now has 1916 yards for the year and needs just 84 to past 2,000.   He is the state’s leading rusher in all classes.   I think some he is getting some looks from some D1 schools.  Should be another fun night to watch some HS football,,,,,,
Ain't football fun? Max is the starting QB on the sophomore team and I think they do play right before the varsity. People tell me Max is doing very well in lots of sports.  Another big game tonight is Glidden vs Coon Rapids in 8 man.
Baby Shower!!
Jenna and Brett are going to host a baby shower for Beth and Ryan on December 11 at Jenna and Brett's new home in WDM. More information and formal invites will be on the way as the date approaches.
First Place, Baby!!
DBT's Trivia Team brought home the first place prize last Saturday night as they defeated 44 teams in a big battle of brains. Each team consists of 8 players, we only had 7, but we won going away. (60 pts) This was our first victory , but we have finished 2nd three times and third twice. It was great fun, with two former students (now ISU Cyclones) on our team. This is a fund raiser for the school and it is done 4-5 times a year, from Oct-March. They charge $12.50 per person and you can buy 5 mulligans for $5. Some of the categories were: History, Geography, Are they Dead or Alive?, Sports, The Price Is Right (grocery prices), Current Movies, Name That Tune, Answers With Red, White and Blue etc. I did not know one price is right (Geeze, I just buy) or current movie and the only singer/tune I got was Dinah Shore, but I did not know the name of the song. If anything happened after 1975, I am weak.  I did know the name of the Stadium where the NE Patriots play, but we missed which major golf title did Arnold Palmer never win?. My best, pure luck, correct answer of the night  was: Who was the manager of the 1969 Miracle Mets? CLICK HERE FOR ANSWER.

Cousin Jimmy Makes Quick Trip To Iowa....
Eh, a little too quick according to the Iowa Highway Patrol. Jimbo was given a speeding ticket for going 71 in a 65 MPH zone....Geeze,.... nail the guy with out of state license plates...... Is this Governor Culver's way of fixing Iowa's budget woes? Unbelievable and Jimmy T is a professional driver. Anyway, Jim had a great time, with great weather and got to see Ron, Bob and Peg and I am sure some others Better slow it down a little Jim, you are not the only one who has run into this cop.  Now was Jim in a hurry to get to Iowa or in a hurry to leave? (Actual policeman is pictured.).
More Computer Troubles!
Sorry, again, but DBT had a major scare from Friday until Sunday night. It looked like his hard drive was crashing. Friday morning, after updating the birthdays, I noticed it was RT's birthday that day. So when I went to put that up,  I discovered that I could not find my Frontpage 2003 program to make changes. The program had disappeared from my desktop and everywhere else I looked. I finally found it, hours later, Friday night. I called my computer boy and he spent the next two days doing tests on my hard drives. (I have two) Nothing is conclusive, so we have no reason why this happened. Sorry for the outage. (This has nothing to do with the changing of the servers a week ago.) Ain't technology fun?
Emily's Dad Is Doing Great!!
Emily's dad, Norm, was involved in a farm combine mishap and broke his hip last Sunday. He had surgery, with pins put in and is now at home. All reports are that he is doing very well, but it is difficult for him to get around.  Everyone says what a really nice guy he is and we wish him the best.. Some say farming is the most dangerous occupation on earth, so stay safe, especially this time of year. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Emily, Norm and their families.
