Frustration....


I watched this bluejay work and work to chip away the ice in my birdbath, hoping to find some water underneath. His efforts were for naught, as it was completely frozen. Guess it's time to buy a heater for the birdbath....













I think there's a moral here, little ones - sometimes no matter how hard you try, you just wind up beating your head against a brick wall (or a bunch of ice).

Those Eagles Just Keep Flying!


They did it again...it was one heck of a high-scoring nail-biter, but the CSC Eagles managed to beat the Abliene Christian University Wildcats 76-73 in triple overtime in the second round of Division II playoffs in Chadron this afternoon. Can't say as I've ever seen anything like it before...it was at times frustrating, disheartening, thrilling, exciting, and astounding....all in all, damn fine football!

And if I understood one of the announcers correctly, Danny Woodhead tied another record today - something about most points scored or most touchdowns made in a college career....I keep tellin' ya, little ones, that young man is GOLD! And the junior quarterback, Joe McLain, sure as heck ain't nothin' to sneeze at either!

The Eagles will continue their high flying ways next week with a third round game against Northwest Missouri State in Chadron at Saturday at noon. GO EAGLES!!!!!!!!

The Eagles Are Still Flying High


For those of you who follow such things, the CSC Eagles - ranked No. 2 in the nation in Division II football - got a bye in the first round of the playoffs and will host a game at home on Saturday, Nov. 24. Oh yea, I'll be there with bells on!

In the final game of the regular season (Nov. 10), they beat Adams State 58-0 and the fleet-of-foot Danny Woodhead played a full half (after missing 3 games due to a foot injury), and brought his career total rushing yards to 7,684. I do believe Danny has done more CSC football, and CSC in general, than any other player in the history of the college...it is because of him that Chadron, Nebraska, and Chadron State College are both in the news, and folks know where and what they are.

After you have your fill of Thanksgiving turkey and the after-Thanksgiving Division I college football games, come on up to Chadron and spent an afternoon watching the best damn football you'll see for a while. GO EAGLES!
