That's a good example of how you never know what you'll find out when you set up an interview. I hope to have some more less painful surprises to report from my first interview on Wednesday morning. I'll be having coffee with the coaches wives.  I'm told they have found some creative ways to keep family  a top priority even during the busy football season.  Join me for that story and much more from Glendale Arizona. So glad you're joining us on this adventure.

Most people know I'm a dog lover. I have two. The one you see here is my big boy Brawk. What does that have to do with being in Arizona covering the Fiesta Bowl? Well, during my first interview today  I found out that BSU President Bob Kustra is a dog lover too.  How did that come up? It was kind of hard to ignore. No, he didn't have his beloved dog Sadie with him but he'll be thinking about her a lot this week.

You see, Dr. Kustra is sporting a big blue and orange cast on his left leg. Turns out he broke his ankle. Or I should say his dog Sadie broke his ankle. She's a border collie and as Dr. Kustra put it she was just doing what she's supposed to do (herding him) and he didn't do what he's supposed to do (be herded) fast enough. 

In the process she wrapped her leash around his leg and down he went. When he came up he discovered he has an unenviable connection to Bronco player Austin Pettis who is also recovering from a broken ankle.  Most people hope that won't stop Pettis from playing in the Fiesta Bowl and most people know that won't slow Kustra down during Fiesta Bowl week. 

That's a good example of how you never know what you'll find out when you set up an interview. I hope to have some more less painful surprises to report from my first interview on Wednesday morning. I'll be having coffee with the coaches wives.  I'm told they have found some creative ways to keep family  a top priority even during the busy football season.  Join me for that story and much more from Glendale Arizona.
