Hawkeye women win two

IOWA CITY– Sunday was a great day for the Hawkeyes to open up the offense, make a close game a blowout and win their 11th game of the season, third in a row, against Northwestern, 74-46.
You have to start with Kachine Alexander. If she doesn’t get some all-conference votes I want a recount.
The 5-9 junior had the first triple-double in eight years (all Big Ten Cara Consuegra was the last one in 2001) scoring 10 points, with 11 rebounds and 12 assists.

Walkin'

I hit a rare day last week when I couldn’t walk outside with the dogs.
Actually, I tried to go to one of our regular places but the parking lot wasn’t plowed. It looked like a 50/50 chance of getting stuck in the snow, so I returned home and gave both Pearl and Buzz a dog biscuit, as is my custom after a walk.
Buzz likes the concept – go for a ride, skip the walk and have a treat – just fine. Buzz can sleep near 24/7, waking only to move to a more comfortable spot, to eat and to answer nature’s call.
In his next life I hope he’s an investment banker.
Young Pearl still craves her walk.

Food for Thought

“Have you read that book I lent you last month?”
“Yes, I enjoyed it, but I’ve…”
“Would you bring it to our meeting next week? My neighbor wants to read it.” (A tactful way of saying, “I want my book back before you begin to think it belongs to you.” A thoroughly justified concern, as I become quite possessive of a book after I’ve read it– especially if I enjoyed it a great deal.)

VanderPol's career cut short

IOWA CITY– There has been some sad news from the women’s basketball team, as Nicole VanderPol is calling it a career.
The 6-2 senior has been fighting injuries for most of her time at Iowa and the latest, poor circulation in her leg which gives her numbness, has made her decision to finish the season on the bench supporting her teammates.
I talked to her at the hospital when the women’s basketball team visited the children and she said she was done playing.
