Let's keep things positive with the Boilermakings today. After this weekend, I felt like my world (sports-wise) was turned upside down. Purdue didn't win everything and my Colts switched identities with the Bears. At least I was able to watch my girlfriend and her team turn in a great weekend by beating two larger universities. Let us look at some positive links about Purdue now.

This next one isn't sports, but the band is a great Purdue tradition and they represented us well this Thanksgiving weekend:

The Purdue All-American Band led the famous holiday parade in New York City. We're the first band from the Big Ten to be in the parade too. We're number 1!?
With football season over, we can now dedicate our obsession to the basketball teams. So what if they lost to a non-conference opponent? Richmond is tournament bound and it may have been good for our younger guys to realize that losing will happen if they can't help JJ and Smooge out enough.
