Re: 2019 NFL Season

There's better ways to use police resources. As far as "sports journalists" - there's more productive ways to make a living. Perhaps, but this story with all of its juicy components is catnip to reporters. You've got a likeable, elderly team owner in Robert Kraft, fresh from a Superbowl v...

Re: 2019 Baseball Season

My first reaction to the Votto story was....huh?......BFD. But what are the odds of going to bat 6000-plus times without a pop-up to first base? Kinda cool. What amazes me, though, is someone keeps obscure stats like that one. Probably someone who badly needs to find a girl friend. I know guys like ...

Re: What was your toughest defeat as a Penn State football fan?

Joe frequently pivoted from riverboat gambler to utterly predictable. On that day, he was predictable. I want to believe that the ghosts of Sugar Bowl '79 were dancing in his head when he decided to go for the FG. Not good times.

Re: What was your toughest defeat as a Penn State football fan?

Yes, the '89 loss to 'bama really stung. We lived in Michigan at the time, and I took a lot of grief from UM and MSU fans. We were participating in a block party that afternoon when I disappeared into the house to watch the game all by my lonesome. Blair Thomas was unstoppable on the final drive exc...

Re: 2019 Baseball Season

Could be worse, dad. The sucky Pirates have two wins....both to the equally sucky Reds. Starting pitching okay...bullpen sucks. Gonna be a long season. Fortunately, I have hockey to distract me for two more months, although I doubt I'll be watching the Penguins for much longer. I'm sensing an early ...

Re: 2019 Baseball Season

Coach Carter is the exception to the rule. That movie sucked. Not sure I understand the Adam Sandler reference, unless you're talking about The Water Boy , which I also rate higher than Coach Carter . I get the Adam Sandler comment. His movies are stinkers. I couldn't force myself to laugh at his f...

Re: 2019 Baseball Season

Actually my taste for movies is very eclectic. I just don't like this one. I did a search on "Bull Durham overrated" and found this old column . I think this guy totally nails it. But, of course, these things are highly subjective. I was prepared to dislike this article before I read it, ...

All smoking? Or just tobacco? Can I still bring my crack pipe?

Re: 2019 Baseball Season

The O's will win a game this series. Book it. So I was wrong. They won the series. You're welcome Dad. It's going to be a long season so I'll enjoy wins however I can. After the 0-21 start in 1988 I'm always relieved when the O's get their first win. A memorable start. The only exciting element to ...
