Where Does the Time Go, Etc.

It's Wednesday already! Gosh, it seems that as one ages, the time seems to go faster and faster! I hope you have all of your plans set up for NYEve, and please enjoy yourself responsibly! Tomorrow night starts a three night homestand for the Coulee Region Chill, and don't miss the Spartans' free scrimmage on Friday, 2:00pm at the La Crosse Center.



I like a little 'Monkey business' every now and again, so I thought you'd like this story of animals in the news in 2010!



I enjoy the commentary by NASCAR.Com's David Carviello, so I thought that we'd look at his Season in Review for today's NASCAR Moment. Enjoy!

This story kind of bothered me a little bit. It seems some scientist types want to recreate the 'Big Bang' that some claim started all of this. I won't get on my high-horse, but I'll let you decide for yourself wether you think it's right.
