The annual Kiss A Pig gala was Saturday night in Rogers at the Embassy Suites. If you're not familiar with the event, The Kiss A Pig raises money for diabetes and diabetes research every year and is quite arguably the social event of the year for those into that sort of thing.
Anyway, couple of cool notes: Coach Petrino's wife bought him a Harley Davidson for around $27,000 during the live auction portion of the show. Also, another person bid a little bit over $4,000 for a private jet trip for two to a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game with Coach Petrino. I wish I could drop 25k whenever I felt like it.
Speaking of baseball, you did realize that it is baseball season didn't you? The beautiful weather we've been having in NW Arkansas should have been your first clue. Don't tell me that you weren't thinking about baseball with the gray skies, rain, and 30-something degree weather we've been having recently. How about a few more double headers in April and May and a few less games in February, or starting the season a week or two later and ending with the College World Series in early July? Maybe it's just me, but I prefer to sit in above freezing conditions to watch baseball.
(Third baseman Logan Forsythe hit .500 this past weekend in the sweep over Wright State as the Razorbacks start off the season 3-0)
Freshman first baseman/DH Andy Wilkins was named the SEC Freshman of the week. I didn't really have time to put together my comprehensive preview of how the Razorback baseball team is going to go 56-0 or to show you just how I think Logan Forsythe will hit .857 this season. I just have one of those feeling you know? They are already 3-0. That's like over 5% of the way to being undefeated. SEMO will be win number four this afternoon.
