Happy birthday Tyler


Twenty-two years ago yesterday, Kim made good use of "labor" day, going into labor with our first-born son, Tyler. He was born the next day, which was Sept. 4, after more than 14 hours of labor – during which I discovered why they called it labor.

Happy birthday kid.

According to the dictionary, labor also means a particular piece of work, especially a long or difficult one. Like the Cougars went through at Auburn (just call me the King of Segue).

We ran Glenn Kasses' analysis of the Cougars' effort today, along with his
roundup of the game action. Glenn also has more commentary on his blog.

The analysis fits with what I wrote Saturday, but Glenn is closer to the situation and the team, so there are a few more insightful and well-grounded comments in his piece.

I'm not going to link to every Cougar story from around the state, but I will direct you to a few. Here is the Seattle Times follow up on the game, along with a game analysis.

In case you missed it, here is the Times' game story. Also, the paper's columnist, Bud Withers, was there, and here is what he wrote.

That's about it. Up next, the Huskies.
