Win! / Fail :(

Former Razorback and current NFL running back Peyton Hillis as the Juggernaut, as seen on

More Football

OK, this is the last sports bit for Win!/Fail 🙁 … until I decide to do another.
Ex-Razorback football players continue to have success at running back in the NFL. Darren McFadden posted 47 yards rush and 82 yards receiving for the Raiders in a loss to the Texans.
And Peyton Hillis had another great week with his 102 yards rushing and a touchdown aiding the Browns to a win over division-rival Bengals. Hillis has scored a touchdown in each of the Browns’ four games, inspiring some fan on to recast Hillis as the unstoppable Juggernaut comic book character.
Result: Win!
I’m a sucker for football and comic books. When can we expect to see a rendering of Hogs Coach Bobby Petrino as Professor X?

After the Party

Two motorcycle deaths occurred Saturday, Oct. 2 during the Bikes, Blues & BBQ rally.
Main stage emcee Joe Giles made frequent pleas throughout the festival for responsible fun.
“We lost and couple of brothers last year, and we’re not going to let that happen again,” Giles said, promoting the use of taxi services if anyone partied too hard.
Result: Grief and amazement
Grief for the families of those who died. It’s never easy to lose a loved one so suddenly.
Amazement that with so many people — some estimates were popping out a 400,000 number — more weren’t injured or killed. Despite packing so many people into NWA, by and large the rally’s a pretty safe and sane event.
