Evening Reading

By Garnett Lee, Jan 10, 2011 5:00pm PST The BCS Championship finally brings the NCAA football season to a close this evening. I get what they originally intended with spacing out the big game on the schedule, but this year the whole thing stretched out in an awkward way. Heck, we wound up without any good games to watch in the afternoon on New Year's Day, but still watching bowls the following weekend.

Regardless, it should be a good game. Ordinarily, I'd be inclined to take Auburn I think based on the strength of the SEC. Something about playing there makes a team tough. But I like this Oregon team. I think they have a shot at getting off to hot start, and not looking back. So yeah, I guess I'm calling it Ducks in a high scoring affair.

Everyone seems to be getting back to a more ordinary work week. Here's the top stories from today on the Shack:

    I just started the books and am on page 278 of Game of Thrones. I like the setting. I like the characters. I like the backstory of the world. I never thought I'd ever pickup a work of fiction from that section of the book store (it's been 5+ years I think) but this isn't half bad. I don't mind it stretching on past 7 books so long as the author doesn't pull a Robert Jordan.

    I don't know where this is all going but I already know that I'd like Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryn to somehow hook up. I'd love to see that combination.

    Also, I hope Daenerys' brother gets what's coming to him. On one hand I'd like him to man up, learn how to fight, and make a worthy foe for the Starks, but the way he treated his sister I just want him to get it...badly.
