Proud To Be A Huskie!
After watching the Northern Illinois Huskies football team squeak by a solid Kent State team on Friday, it was an extra bonus to see the Huskies make the first ever BCS bowl game by a non-BCS school….basically breaking the BCS bubble.

First Impressions of the iPhone 5

First Impressions of the iPhone 5
The world lost it’s mind a few Friday’s ago when the new iPhone was released…most didn’t understand why as a majority of the features were similar to Android phones already on the market.
