I had a pretty relaxed Sunday. Hope you did, too.

I ran some errands, did some chores.

Most thrillingly, I bought a toaster. And then I toasted bread to test it. It works.

The floor needed sweeping, the bathroom needed cleaning and I had to take out the recycling bin.

You know, one of those days.

I did have the tube on and heard/watched the Big Ten games today. Was surprised how well Illinois played in winning (and showing that it can actually score the basketball) at Ohio State, how easily Minnesota handled Northwestern and by the Michigan meltdown in overtime against Iowa.

(By the way, I was folding laundry and heard the announcer yell “That’s the dagger by Michigan!” Of course when I came up the game was headed to overtime. So it wasn’t much of a dagger. But therein lies my question: what does that term even mean? Is the rest of the game a fist fight and then suddenly one dude pulls out a dagger and stabs the other, ending it? Is that the imagery we’re after there? I get confused every time I hear it.)

Anyway, it was a day to let the brain recharge a bit. I actively tried not to think too much, which, because I know you have this question, is different than other days because other days I try to think and simply fail to do so with much result.

But I could not let the anniversary of Kelvin Sampson’s resignation pass without at least a note here.

Hummel done for the year?

By   |   Friday, Feb. 20, 2009 - 6:35 PM   |   19 comments

It appears as though Purdue’s star forward Robbie Hummel could miss the rest of the season with the fractured vertebrae that has limited his availability for much of the season.

That’s what the Journal Courier of West Lafayette, among others, is now reporting.

After his team had been thrashed 72-54 on Tuesday night, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo commented that without Hummel (who was playing in his second game since returning from originally hurting his back) the Boilermakers were a good team; with him, a special team.
