Memorial Day thoughts

Memorial Day thoughts

Last night, my son graduated from Capital High School.  That’s why my in-laws are in town.  Two came to Boise from Warrenton, Virginia, and two from Fairfax, Virginia.  Both towns are just minutes from Washington, DC. I recommend that every American visit Washington, DC if it’s within your means to do so.  See the Capitol,…MORE

What Mom Taught Me

What Mom Taught Me

Mother’s Day is this Sunday.  The most important thing my mother ever taught me was how to censor myself.  I don’t mean that she told me not to swear.  She did, I’m sure, but it wasn’t a subject that came up very often.  We weren’t a swearing family.  Swearing was something that some people did…MORE

Effective Multi-tasking

I’ve multi-tasked my entire life.  I never thought of it that way, but technically that’s what I do.  Despite what doctors recommend, I’ve always read myself to sleep.  When I was a kid, probably from age two to eighteen, my mother would check on me before she went to bed, and every night, she would…MORE

Conference thoughts

Conference thoughts

College football conferences are infuriating.  They’re inconsistent, and they only make a lot of sense if you look at them from a single point of view.  And that point of view is money.  Money, naturally, makes the world go around.  Or at least it makes the United States go around while the world is going…

BLOG: Nice to see Bronco Nation Again

Rick Worthington   This is just my own observation…. When I first moved to Idaho, Coach Pete had Boise State rolling. Kellen Moore was piling up the wins and the NFL was getting it’s share of Broncos to the professional ranks. I also rarely saw a car or truck without a Boise State flag or…

“Albuquerque”, what’s in a name…

For someone who’s never been to Albuquerque, I feel as if I’ve always known quite a bit about it.  Boise State plays the University of New Mexico football team tonight in Albuquerque.  I know exactly where I first heard of the city.  It was in Bugs Bunny cartoons.  More than once, Bugs emerged from digging…
