Ex-Hoosiers, Gamblers and Babies

- Gerry DiNardo be joining Dave Revsine and Howard Griffith in the studio booth on the BigTen Network this fall. You probably don't care because you probably don't have DirectTV.

- Andre Owens is impressing new Pacers coach Jim O'Brien as they wrap up summer league play. Although Stevie Franchise and Brevin Knight are free agents, I think Larry is content with Jamaal until his contract runs out. The only way he'll be supplanted as starting PG is thru a major trade or next year's draft. They might be looking at picking up Jannero Pargo or Keith McLeod as well.

- The World Series of Poker ended today, and it really lived up to it's name. Jerry Yang, a 39-yr-old shrink from Laos took down 7 of the final 8 players at the final table which included a Brit, a Canuck, a Russian, a Vietnamese, an African and a Danish fellow. Yang took home $8.25 mil from the tournament that featured over 6,000 players with a $10k buy-in.

- A 17-yr-old girl from Indiana was on vacation in California this week and gave birth in a Denny's bathroom. She then stuffed the baby in the trash and tried denying it to her boyfriend and his parents. Police arrested the bloody girl and the baby is in good condition.

- A baby giraffe was born at the Indy Zoo this Sunday and he's already taller than me at 6'2".baby giraffe

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Indy vs. Boston battle for America's best suburbs

Joining Carmel as one of the best places to live in America (and the world), neighbors Zionsville and Westfield are now also ranked in the top 10 in the newest ‘Best Small Cities’ study, according to WalletHub:  https://wallethub.com/edu/best-worst-small-cities-to-live-in/16581 Boston & Indy suburbs dominated the top of the list, with Lancaster (PA) taking the top spot.  Not only is Indianapolis one of the fastest growing cities in America, it's the only city on the list not located in the South or West:  https://www.inspectionsupport.com/resources/the-fastest-growing-metropolitan-areas-in-the-u-s/
