Mizzou Musings


I did not go to Mizzou but I have been a fan all of my life. I did apply and intended to go, but I got a scholarship to SLU [braggart] and went there. I have followed the Tigers in basketball and football since the Sunvold-Stipanovich days and I remember when Steve Piszarciwiecz was QB of the Tigers. I did, however, recently join the MU community recently (in a very small fashion). I got a library card at the Ellis Library and can now check out books. Not only do I feel like a scholar again, I actually feel like I am connected to the school I have been following all of my life.

There has been a recent dust up in the Athletic Department about a blogsite with the name missouritigers.com. This man, an alum, registered the domain name seven years ago when it had expired. He offered it to Mizzou for his expenses. Never heard anything about it. Now he is being threatened to turn it over because he has been accused of copyright infringement. Visit the site and let the guy tell you the story. It is interesting and the guy is pretty entertaining.

Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is going to be at Mojo's tonight. I am dragging the wife. So underrated.
