Shocking Season!

The Wichita State Shockers ended the season with 35 wins and one loss.


Who would have thought at the beginning of the season that they would go through the season, through the Missouri Valley Conference tournament and on to the NCAA tournament with NO losses? No one! And no other team in history has done this.

Then, the powers that be who determine the brackets, sent the Shockers to the toughest bracket in the tournament. I am so, so proud of the way the Shockers played their second game against Kentucky, a powerhouse with six players destined to be NBA players in the next year or two. The game went down to the wire, and we lost by 2 points when our three point shot at the end of the game went wide.

The Shockers should not hang their heads. They should be proud of the amazing season that invigorated the community. The season that brought Wichitans together. The season that will live forever in history. BE PROUD, SHOCKERS! Because the state of Kansas is so proud of you!

I leave you with a picture of me and the kids at the game against Indiana State in Koch Arena, the only game we attended this year. Yes, A WIN!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
