"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
The Michigan Softball team traveled to East Lansing to put a thumping on sparty 8-0 in 5 inning mercy-rule win. We started out a tad slow but in the top of the 5th inning, the bats exploded for 8 runs.
Lauren Sweet went 1 for 3 (HR) and 3 RBIs. Amy Knapp went 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs. Ashley Lane went 1 for 3 with an RBI.
Haylie Wagner started in the circle today. She gave up only 2 hits while striking out 2. She also went 1 for 1 with an RBI.
Overall, sparty is a very bad team. So it is expected that we win. The game started slow but we game alive. I always say, a win is a win.
Congrats to the ladies. I will be at the game tomorrow, tailgating. So stop buy and I will have a cold beer for you.

This might be the best shot ever taken at the Masters.

For those as obsessed with beer as I am, I just saw that Lagunitas out of Petaluma CA is opening a production facility in Chicago. Their first batches will be brewed on the south side starting next summer (2013). Tony McGee (the owner) was born and raised in Chicago, so it's no big surprise they are opening a facility here, IMO.
This is big news for those of us who love their hoppy beers as fresh as possible. Very exciting stuff for beer geeks like me- especially with Sierra Nevada and New Belgium opening operations in NC.
