Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

That article sounds like it was written by Matt Christopher.

I didn't find it excessively homer-ish; it simply was written for readers who care far more about K-State than about the opponent.

It was a quick article written on deadline, before he had quotes from any athletes or coaches. It wasn't great and it had several cliches, but I didn't find it to be inaccurate. In other words, it was "fine."
“They are dying. That’s true. It is what it is.”

"It affects virtually nobody.”

“I’ll be right eventually.”

i didn't necessarily mean to be degrading; just an observation.  coming from the kansas city star, i wouldn't expect anything less than a slant toward kstate.  just seemed like it was written by an aspiring upstart assigned to the late saturday night scoop, getting their new pens inked, that's all

Great reference. I must have read 15+ of his books growing up.

Plus the basic point was solid.  KSU missed many easy shots in the first half.

Absolutely.  He was one of my favorites.  Had a set of 4 which I read over and over.
Their= possessive of they
They're= slightly shorter than "they are"
There= the opposite of here
