Hello, Computer. How's the Internet today?

Before you get in your obligatory half hour of zoning out at your desk, take a short stroll through some of the MSU-related and maybe-not-so-MSU-related miscellany that the internet has to offer today.

Morning Linkage

Mullen recaps the Troy game - This week's secondary buzz word—"edge"—was in full force after the Troy game. Mullen discussed a number other things, notably the run game on offense and the performance Manny's D.

Speaking of "edge" - Bob Carskaden's post-game thingy discusses Mullen's emphasis on "edge" throughout the week leading up to the game. Sounds like he challenged the D and that the D responded nicely.

Baseball? - Indeed, baseball. Had a scrimmage over the weekend and Cohen gave some of his post-game thoughts to the local media:

Recruiting . . . Howland Style - In case you hadn't heard, State's basketball team had a huge recruiting weekend. One of those in attendance, a blue-chipper named Mario Kegler, shared this thoughts about the visit.

Love for the Boobie -  In my message board perusals on Sunday, I happened upon this profile of Boobie Dixon and what he's been through in his life. Solid read.

Six Degrees of Kermit the Frog

So I was watching the new version of the Muppet Show with my wife and wondering why the hell it had to be another faux documentary deal like the Office and Modern Family when my mind started its usual drifting. I began by looking at YouTube videos of old Muppets clips and eventually happened upon Kermit's rendition of "Rainbow Connection." That then led me to Willie Nelson's version, which led me to other Willie Nelson songs I hadn't heard in awhile.

Anywho, a dozen or so clicks latter, I somehow found this, a shaky, grainy video of the Grateful Dead playing "I'll Been All Around this World," that I'd never seen before. This is from my favorite era of the Dead—though admittedly the window is very small for me, so "favorite era" is close to meaning "only period in which I like their music at all"—and the great music more than makes up for the poor video quality.
