Bowl bound

The University of Memphis Tigers made a cool Adobe Spark story that told the tale of Saturday's big win over Cincinnati with a series of stunning photographs.

The Tigers will now take on Penn State on December 28th at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl game in Texas.

What the Shell?

Shock and disappointment ran deep in a Nextdoor thread about the sudden closing of Elwood's Shells in Cooper-Young last week.

Much praise was heaped upon the restaurant for its seafood, breakfast, and massive portions. But Nextdoorians offered their theories on the closing, too. Pricey food, not enough tables, small parking lot, and a deck that "looks like fifth graders" were building it were all blamed.

"That front deck is stupid," wrote a Nextdoor user.
