So cool to see a Wildcat QB in the NFL! Way to go Nick!

It HAD to happen at some point, right? I’m no sports statistician, but wasn’t the U of A the only PAC 10 (12) team to not have a sent a QB to the NFL? At least in a looooong time…

Whatever the specifics are, it’s very cool to see Foles in the big league and… WINNING! 🙂

Granted, it is the pre-season, but hey! A good result is a good result. Looking forward to seeing what more he can do and really hoping he can keep his head together (i.e. no more concussions). But in the NFL… that seems to be par for the course.

Heck, just ask Vick.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Michael Vick keeps taking his lumps. His Philadelphia Eagles keep winning. The star quarterback was leveled after throwing a long pass in the first quarter and underwent X-rays for the second straight game – negative again. Then former Arizona Wildcat QB Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 27-17 preseason victory over the New England Patriots on Monday night. Vick had X-rays on his ribs after being knocked down by linebacker Jermaine Cunningham. Eleven days earlier, in a 24-23 win over Pittsburgh, he had X-rays on his left thumb after hitting it on center Jason Kelce’s helmet. Foles threw two touchdown passes for the second straight game for the Eagles (No. 8 in the AP Pro32). Tom Brady sat out the game for the Patriots (No. 2).

Kinesio tape: Olympic accessory

It was all over the Olympics, and my bet is it’ll soon be all over the local tennis courts, basketball courts and softball fields. What do you think? Have you used it? Did it make a real difference for you or do you think it might be all psychological?

Share your thoughts!

A car that can do 0-60mph in under 3 seconds…

A car that can do 0-60mph in under 3 seconds…

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately!), you won’t be seeing this car on any Tucson streets since it’s not street legal anywhere in the US or Europe. Oh, and it’ll cost about $2.2 Million! But that doesn’t mean it’s not fun to take a look and dream…

For all you car enthusiasts out there, have a look at Lamborghini’s Sesto Elemento concept car that will go production. Production of only 20 though.

This is the kind of car that can make you dream… but between the price tag and the sick speeds they’er talking about, it might end up being more of a nightmare!

No-fee mortgage option is on the way

A “no fee” mortgage sounds great, doesn’t it? But here’s what I don’t understand…

Clearly there are still COSTS involved in doing a mortgage, right? I mean there is a lot of paperwork, legal contracts etc etc, and it involves a lot of people (even more with all the new and ever changing rules in the industry, I’m sure.)

So, if there are no FEES with a mortgage, and a lender isn’t allowed to charge a higher interest rate to get a better rebate to cover costs… how is this going to work?

Or is this simply something that “sounds good”, but isn’t realistic in the long run? Is it kind of like a promise to lower everyone’s taxes and still balance the budget and eliminate the deficit? …sorry, getting a bit off topic here now I guess

The consumer bureau on Friday proposed new rules that would force lenders to offer mortgages with no fees or points.

A hunk of desert near Tucson, Arizona, known as “The Boneyard”

If you’re looking for something really unique closer to Tucson, you can check out the Pima Air and Space Museum. It’s an up-close and personal tour of a lot of the stuff you WONT be able to see (other than from a distance), that sits in our own “boneyard”, not far outside of Tucson.
