Mt. Fran erupts in Iowa

If you were worried that former Siena coach Fran McCaffery would lose his edge (and volcanic temper) among the reserved Midwesterners at Iowa, worry not. After an eruption during a game with Michigan State last week (that included emphatic chair abuse), the Big Ten has apparently asked McCaffery to chill out. The Hawkeyes are 11-8 this season, and just beat #13 Michigan this past weekend. [YouTube] [USA Today] [ESPN]

There is zen-like ritual to using and maintaining a straight razor, especially one that has over 100 years of history behind it. I highly recommend it.
