You Can’t Stop The Gophers!
"License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They’re like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that’s all she wrote."
Just like Bill Murray’s Carl Spackler character in the movie Caddyshack, an attempt was made to destroy Gophers today. And just like in Caddyshack, the Gophers came out on top…
Minnesota - 42
Indiana - 39
For the third game in a row, the Gophers were underdogs on the point spread. What have they done the past three games?
Minnesota - 7
MSU Mankato -0
And the Gopher Women continue their world record streak with their 59th straight victory. (read that sentence again and let it sink in)
And a varmint will never quit - ever.

If you thought previous space photos were awesome, just wait.
Researchers at the University of Arizona, the Arcetri Observatory and the Carnegie Observatory have finished 20 years of work on a camera able to take photos at a preposterous resolution.
Said UA astronomy professor Laird Close:
"We can, for the first time, make long-exposure images that resolve objects just 0.02 arcseconds across – the equivalent of a dime viewed from more than a hundred miles away. At that resolution, you could see a baseball diamond on the moon."
This effectively means that the new camera technology allows for photographs that double the quality of the Hubble Space Telescope, as you can see above.
Read on for more info on the camera.
This might be my favorite Rubioism.
Here it is. My 4th Annual Super Bowl Half Time Show song leak. This one is from none other than Bob Dylan, who is replacing Beyonce who dropped out after her inauguration lip synching scandal.
“Running Out The Clock” is a previously unreleased song from Dylan’s 1983 “Infidels” album. I guess it makes sense… the football metaphors and references.
I hope you enjoy and know I’ll be back next year with another leak.
