It's almost the weekend. Today is Barbie's birthday. The doll was introduced on this date in 1959.

2 - The Bettendorf Bulldogs ran into foul trouble last night and that was the difference in their 61-53 loss in the Iowa State Tournament in Des Moines. Details and more scores when we do That Sports Thing at about 7:35am on The Morning KIIK Start.

3 - I'm not sure who thinks this is a good idea, but Illinois is considering legislation that would allow people under the age of 21 to drink as long as they are with their parents. This smells like a solution looking for a problem.

4 - We'll have a guest on the program this morning. Former Chicago Blackhawk star, and TV NBC commentator Jeremy Roenick will join us around 8:30am this morning. Roenick will be on hand for the Grand Opening Celebration at the new DICK’S Sporting Goods, Field & Stream and Golf Galaxy in Davenport (5511 Elmore Avenue) this Saturday March 11th, from 2-4pm.

Have a great Thursday.
