It's going to snow, go to the grocery store.

It actually snowed a ton last night. Yeah weatherpeople. You finally got one right. The thing I find funny about these large snow events is that the night before the local news always talks about how the supermarkets were busy and people were out stocking up on food. For the life of me, I don't get this. Maybe I have been blessed in my life to usually have more than a days worth of potential meals in my fridge or pantry, but for the life of me, I can't figure out the grocery store rush prior to snow. I am working from home today and have about 6 options for lunch. I went with the frozen pizza. But do people really think they are going to be snowed in for days on end and need to stock up on food? I am pretty sure if I wanted to, I could make it over to the Sendicks or Pick and Save sometime this evening. In general, people are dumb.

Also, how the hell is Minnesota/Indiana 2008 Big Ten Tournament a Big Ten's Greatest Game? Yah, the guy from the Gophers hit a sweet game winner, but it was the first round of the Tournament and one team sucked and one was in a freefall. Not riveting TV.

I've caught about 3 "Classic" Big-11 football games on the Big11 Network, and late 80s Indiana was on it every time. I mean, Anthony Thompson was sweet, but how many classic games could they have played in?

I can't say I agree with the network's classification of these games as "classic," but please look at the programming alternatives: women's tennis, men's gymnastics, etc...I'll take an old football game or basketball game any day as long as something notable, such as a last second shot or Jeff George sighting, occurs.

Ya figure the Big Ten network is like Skinemax for Jason Whitlock?
