What a Weekend

October 11, 2006
I should go take a nap now, this weekend is going to be crazy.  I will be with a thousand other KSU b-ball fans awaiting to get into Bramledge at midnight to watch the practices.  KSU v nebraska on Saturday night and then kennedy competes in Punt Pass and Kick on Sunday pm about 2 hours away.  A former KSU women’s b-ball player, Kendra Wecker, won PP&K I believe as a 12 year old, when girls and boys still competed together.  Think I will go search the net for a clip, she was and still is fantastic.
