Off-Topic / Notre Dame Catheral is Gone
« on: April 15, 2019, 02:23:34 PM »
It continues to burn but it's doubtful anything other than the 870 year shell will remain. Looks like it may be the fault of contractor working in the attic or on the roof.  I'll hazard a guess it was hot work, cutting or welding.

College / Yianni v McKenna
« on: March 24, 2019, 09:38:18 AM »
2 key reviews of TDs.  Did the ref blow both?  Sure did look like Yianni had 2 when he rolled over McKenna with his arm trapped and then McKenna for 1 -E with the rollout  And, it sure looked like McKenna had control for 2 at the end of the flurry, Yianni on the mat and McKenna with 2 legs. 

Worthy of another look see.

College / NCAA Seeding Curiosities
« on: March 11, 2019, 08:54:03 AM »
for starters....

285

Cassar  25-1
Steveson 31-1
White 28-1
Dhesi 10-1

Cassar W Steveson W White W Cassar

Dhesi's loss was to Michigan freshman Mason Parris

Dhesi had the weakest loss, so he gets #4

Cassar's W over Steveson is the most recent, with Cassar and White losing early in the season.

Or, will the seeding committee use a coin flip for 1-3 ?

College / Princeton v Cornell 1PM Est
« on: February 09, 2019, 11:33:51 AM »
Princeton seeks to knock off Cornell from end its 17 year reign on top of the Ivy League dog pile.  It's one of the few times you can catch Yianni and Brucki

#3 Brucki gets #11 Honis at 197.  Brucki looked horrible against Rutgers with a taped up elbow. He's vulnerable in this one.
Lots of tossups, 125, 165, 174, 197, 285

It will be streaming on ESPN+ @1 PM EST. If you are not subscriber, it's offering a 7 day free trial, then $4.99 / month, but the subscription can be cancelled at anytime within 7 days including soon after the match if you so desire.

College / Chris Ayres
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:17:14 AM »
Lots of chit chat about what Dresser is achieving at Iowa State.  Meanwhile, what Chris Ayres is subtly accomplishing at Princeton remains hush.

His first two years, an ugly 0-35, but he's been able to attract top tier talent with the huge brand at his back, and is turning Princeton into a top ten team. A lot of these kids may well have gone to Cornell.

How long will it continue until a B1G or B12 entices him away?  Or will he wait it out for an opportunity back at Lehigh. (could be a long wait)

Other Sports / Mariano Rivera to the HoF
« on: January 23, 2019, 10:16:44 AM »
Wow, 100 %

Think of all of HoFers that didn't warrant a 100% vote in the eyes of the baseball writers. 

Can'y believe someone not voting for any of these guys.........

Hank Aaron 
Ted Williams
Joe DiMaggio
Bob Feller
Ty Cobb
Babe Ruth
Christy Mathewson
Lou Gehrig   (a special election was held the winter after his announced retirement for health reasons.  His election count was never recorded but it would be hard to believe someone would not have voted in his favor.)

Others that could have been 100%ers..........

Cal Ripken Jr.
Tom Seaver
Steve Carlton
Johnny Bench
Carl Yastrzemski
Willie Mays
Mickey Mantle
Nolan Ryan
George Brett
Ken Griffey Jr (missed by 3 votes)
