[gladly bumped from the diaries.--ed.]
Mark Hasty over at the Fanhouses has an article about some of the Iowa football players donating blood and the annual Purdue FB blood drive.
If nothing else, I think it's worth bringing this up since blood shortages are a continual issue.
It's nice to see that some of the Hawks stepped up to the plate. It's great to see that Purdue does this every year. I'm guessing it's a good team builder, letting the guys show how tough they are (cause nothing says macho like squeezing out of a pint in 3 minutes, then standing up and fainting) and it's a nice human interest story, which, God knows, the Hawks could use more of, but the important thing is that if you show up in the hospital needing a transfusion, there is a supply for you.
