Tuesday This & That

The 7th season of American Idol starts tonight. Kelly & I are headed to John’s & Megan’s house tonight to hang out and watch the season debut.

Darren McFadden & Felix Jones both announced yesterday that they are foregoing their senior season with the Razorbacks to head to the NFL. I don’t guess this is a surprise but there’s still a part of me that hoped at least one of them might stay for another year.

I don’t really think I’ve decided who I am voting for in the Arkansas primary on February 5. I have, though, been following how Mike Huckabee (an Arkansan) is doing on the Republican side of the Presidential race. Mike doesn’t have the money backing him like some of the candidates but he does seem to be gaining support (and primary votes). After 3 states, he is leading the Republican race.

Other Interest Tidbits…
-Rick Hendrick (Dale Jr’s new car owner) was named Valvoline’s 2007 Man of the Year in Racing.
-The Arkansas Razorback men’s basketball team is 2-0 in SEC play.
-Matthew Good was named Canadian Rock Artist of the Year by iTunes. (You might have noticed Matt’s link over on the sidebar on my blog. I started listening to Matt’s music about 3 years ago.)
-In case you were wondering, here are the directions on how to get from Here to There.

interesting blog, tara.

yeah i like those first two photos as well…i wondering who was standing beside the camera person *wink*

i read about those two players as well and even though i don’t follow the sport and don’t follow them … i still feel that they shouldn’t skip out on their senior year (they never know if they’ll need it)
