Cold temps for the Village

January 30, 2010

Forestville - cold and barren

Cold continues to grip the village of Forestville.  Current temperature is 4 degrees, but it feels like minus 10.

Today it will be mostly sunny with the high reaching the 20s. Winds will be out of the northwest at 5 to 10 mph. Tonight the low is expected to be around 10 degrees.

Sunday you can expect more of the same. 

Enjoy, Forestville. Enjoy.


Are college football bowl games just exhibition games? If so why the big deal?

January 3, 2010

Texas is to play Alabama for the national championship in the Rose Bowl on January 7th.  As a result, are not the other college football bowl games being played merely exhibition games at best?  If so, why all the fuss? 

If the San Diego Chargers play the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl (my prediction) would anyone watch the Dallas Cowboys play the Cincinnati Bengals the same week in a consolation game?  No.  Why?  It would be an exhibition or rather a scrimmage.  The Cowboys Bengals  game has no impact on anything.  Why is college football any different?
