I like the way the earth rotates.

It really makes my day.

Want to watch football players smash softballs?

Then I have some good news for you! The Broncos are bringing back the Summer Classic and should be a fun thing to watch. Joe Martarano has to be unfairly good at that, yeah?

Bronco swimmers competed at the US Olympic time trials

Sam Wicks placed 58th in the the backstroke.

Brittany Aoyama placed 102nd in the butterfly.

Side note: there a bunch of really good swimmers out there and only one is going to win a gold. When you follow these from the start to finish, you can really appreciate what goes into these.

Allie Ostrander is running at the US Olympic trials

Per a Boise State media release:

Allie Ostrander will compete in the 5,000m at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Eugene, Ore., at Hayward Field. The first round will take place on Thursday, July 7 at 4:20 p.m. (PT), and the final will take place on Sunday, July 10 at 4:28 p.m. (PT).

She is currently the only collegian that is declared in the field.

If you have been wondering where she has been the last couple of months this is probably the explanation. Like a legendary Pokémon that only pops up occasionally to only flutter away, Ms. Ostrander is going to try and Olympian to her current laundry list of “awesome things I have done” résumé.

Good luck to Ms. Ostrander as she competes with some of the best runners the United States has to offer.

Ever wonder about the progress of a new airport in Berlin? Well now you will know.
