The Mr. Squishy Show Web Companion
Okay, you're saying to yourself, I can watch the Mr. Squishy
Show, I can read about the Mr. Squishy show on the World Wide Web, but
what if I want to explore the Web while watching the Mr. Squishy Show?

mailing list. Unfortunately, it's also been the best way to receive
80 fascinating and pertinent messages a day on such topics as whether

sport ever created. Log off and go enjoy some already. If you want

Saugerties or Ithaca, you can check out one of Joe Schlobotnik's amateur
baseball picks, the Santa

Real College Football We all know
Division I-A Big Time College Football is little more than a minor
league for the NFL, but at the Division I-AA, II and III levels,
people still remember what it's all about: trounce your rivals and win
your conference. If your local newspaper skimps on the real college
results, never fear. The Nando sports server has

paper doesn't care to show you. The "lower" divisions do have
National Championships, but at least they're settled by tournaments.

And of course, there's the Mr. Squishy Show's sports coverage.

It's not exactly Mr. Squishy Sports, but I've also started
doing a Club Sports Roundup on KCSB's Sports

They prefer to call their brand of '20s-'40s jazz "hot music", but
