Man, what a heart-breaker. There is nothing that knocks the wind out of you like losing on the very last play of the game.

Maybe I’m reliving my college days? Maybe I’m simply getting back to timeless style and proven quality? Who cares, I guess. Yesterday I received a box in the mail from L.L. Bean. I had ordered a pair of the Bean Blucher Mocs, and they had arrived. I had a pair of these classic shoes back in my MSU days. Along with a pair of Ray Ban Aviators, crumpled chinos and an untucked worn blue oxford hanging out from a reverse-weave Champion Michigan State sweatshirt, it was part of my standard gear circa 1988.

My team, the Spartans of Michigan State University, played Northwestern today. It was a noon game on ESPN2, and I watched it on the TV out on the screened-in porch. We had cable installed out there just for this reason. Why outside? Well, I like to enjoy a good cigar during the game and I don’t smoke cigars inside of the house. So today was nearly a perfect day…

Well, the Michigan State Spartan football team is back to even. The losses to Central Michigan and Notre Dame were awful. Both could have been avoided, but that’s football. And injuries are starting to become an issue with Winston out for the season and Nichol questionable.
There are some things to feel pretty good about though…
