The plane of the future, fits in your garage!

I need one of these!  But for the $139,000 price tag I might just buy a real plane.

It’s the Icon A5.  A two seat, single engine amphibious airplane that can fold up to fit in your garage.  I do like the interior though.

Husker VS. Texas Tech Preview and Prediction

 

Mike’s Husker Preview
Written By: “Mike”, the man-in-motion, giving us a running start on Saturday’s game.

Last year we played Tech so close because we kept their offense off the field.  I can’t remember what the time of possession numbers were, but they were largely slanted in our favor.  I haven’t seen enough consistency out of our offense to make me think we can do the same thing this year, at least not to the same degree.  I’m sure our coaches will call a similar game-plan to hopefully do the same thing this year and limit the time Tech has with the ball.  Personally, I think the success of our offense will determine the outcome of the game. 

Defensively, we are worlds better than we were last year.  Although I don’t anticipate many sacks, our front four should be able to consistently collapse the pocket and put their quarterback into tough situations.  Our secondary is playing with far less breakdowns than last year at this time and tackling a lot better too.  Tech will have lots of completions and yards, but not nearly as many big plays as a result.  With that said, I think our defense will do enough to slow their offense down and give us a chance to win.

Prediction –  If Lee and the offense struggle, it could be a long day and possibly a loss.  If Lee plays better than he did against both Virginia Tech and Missouri, and Watson calls a good game, we’ll be fine.  I’m betting on the latter.  NU – 34, TTU – 24

Did Balloon Boy Say It Was For “Show”? [Video]

This is a little off topic of my blog but………

I know I heard it.  The kids answer to his Dad, was that he did it for show!  I’m sorry, but is it just me or are these parents a little off?  I’d say any family on Wife Swap is probably a little off.  Watch the video and comment for your self.

2009 Nissan 370Z

 The Nissan 350z, Infiniti G35 Coupe, and their new big brothers 370z and G37 have made some great visual improvments.  Not only that, but they have raised the hp to 332 which is 17 more hp than in the 2010 V8-powered (and heavier) Mustang GT.   A couple other impressive specs to note are the 0-60 time of 5.1 sec and the 60-0 length of 101 feet.  By the way that’s about on par with Nissan’s GT-R supercar.

 “Forty years ago, the Datsun 240Z appeared in the U.S. and the (now Nissan) Z car has had a loyal following ever since. To celebrate four decades of its affordable sports car, Nissan is launching a 40th anniversary edition of the 370Z in 2010.”

Here is a picture of the 40th Anniversary Edition.  Being a special edition of a sports car it only comes with a 6 speed manual transmission.  You get a third peddle folks!
