Lock Laces

Do you hate tying your shoes like I do? I found an answer. I ordered a couple of pairs of Lock Laces a couple of weeks ago and I love them! They make slipping on a shoe a breeze without any worries when it comes time to tie them. Here is the description from the company:
"Lock Laces are a patented “elastic lacing system” that feature specially designed elastic laces combined with a spring activated locking device.

Lock Laces are great for running, triathlon, playing sports and casual wear. Lock Laces are also ideal for children, the elderly and the physically challenged. Wear Lock Laces with all styles of running shoes, athletic shoes and casual lace-up shoes for any desired use."

I normally don't endorse too many products, but this is one that is cheap and works great. Check out the website here: www.locklaces.com You can purchase from their website or you can buy from on Ebay, using Paypal, like I did.

Yearbook Yourself

Here is a cool site for you to check out this weekend. The site has you upload a mugshot of your face and then takes you into different decades of yearbooks changing your hair and clothes. It's quite fun. Try it out. Click Here.
The Picture is me from the late 70's (Kind of scary - Good thing I was a little too young at the time to be in high school). :)

A Cy-Hawk Prediction

Well, the big game in Iowa is this week. The annual Iowa State vs Iowa showdown. Both teams come into this year's contest with records of 2-0. Iowa has beaten up on two teams that most high school teams could beat. Iowa State so far has played a couple of easier teams as well. So who will win? Iowa has the home field advantage and rain is in the forecast. My prediction........ ISU 38 - Iowa 27 in an exciting game. Look for Phillip Bates, for ISU, to provide at least one "Seneca Wallace Type Moment" and put up some big rushing yards on the Hawks. And yes, the Cy-Hawk trophy will be the Cyclones yet again.
