Probably the only interesting story in this year's Open.
http://espn.go.com/golf/usopen14/story/_/id/11085664/2014-us-open-analyst-cart-driver-trooper-run-in

I wonder what the final charges/results turn out to be once the big cheeses become involved??

Indeed, good WC so far.   England/Italy match was, as expected, very "tactical."
But I thought England just played too soft in the midfield. I thought they should have pressured the aging Pirlo more often. BUT, this can be easier said than done.

Penn State has Josh Sharma '15, Aaron Falzon '15, Ian Sistare '16 and AJ Brodeur '16 on campus today, per a source.

(we knew this, but a pleasant reminder)

Saw some video on a couple of the kids. Sharma would be a homerun!

OT / World Cup
« on: June 13, 2014, 09:55 AM »
While there was World Cup discussion on another thread I think the topic deserves it's own thread!

This should be a very interesting WC. As they say " It wouldn't be a World Cup without controversy."  First match flop PK was a start.
I would image there may be serious pressure on the refs........................! Nuff said!

Group stage matches sometimes can be underwhelming. It is not uncommon where one squad (or sometimes both) is VERY content in a draw! That is "assure 1 point...........don't risk getting none points! Sometimes this may produce a 0-0 stinker.  Hope this does not happen often much this year.
Today the Netherlands-Spain could be a good one!!

Match was 1-1 at the time in about the 69th-70th minute. A PK kick goal at that time TOTALLY changes the remainder of the match!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The last goal was a counter punch goal where Croatia had sold out to the attack!

NCAA scheduling rules allow teams to play 29 regular season games, or 27 regular season games + an exempt tournament. The maximum number of regular season games is capped at 31

I can't decide whether to laugh or cry!

P.S. Maybe my post belongs in the "union" or "NCAA Reform"  thread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know tundra wouldn't like it, but a home 'n' home with Pitt, Temple and Villanova each year would be pretty phenomenal in my book.

I'm shaking just thinking about it!!!!!!!   ;)

I would counter with Point Park, Lock Haven and Philly Textile!

Alvarez is another guy who turned down the guaranteed money early on and will become a FA next year


I don't think he is a FA until after the 2016 season!

What an interesting (being nice) 1-0 loss today. Enough "could have been....would have been....should have been calls" for 20 games.
Every game I watch I'm more convinced MLB needs stronger control of the umps. That is.... they do the job properly or get demoted or discharged!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
When was the last time an MLB ump was demoted or discharged??  Sometimes I feel entire teams of umps should be disciplined!!

Penn State Basketball / "Before I Die" wishing wall
« on: June 8, 2014, 09:22 AM »
Mrs. Cupcake Man  8)  and I had a wonderful day yesterday in downtown Pittsburgh. We saw "Singin in the Rain" at the Benedum Theater. Also spent time at the Three Rivers Arts Festival!  As part of the Festival there was a large blackboard wall (there may have been more than one) with chalk available entitled "Before I die.........."  The purpose was to finish the sentence. Wide variety of responds. But the one I liked the most was a very large prominent .... I want to see PENN STATE win another National Championship!
I wanted to leave a PSU Basketball message but the wall was full!! 

Cheers,

Right, but they forced change in basketball to some degree because fans didn't like the cupcake non conference schedules


Not being a wise guy......................BUT can anybody show me ANY official NCAA basketball selection criteria? I don't mean "factors they MAY consider if they want to," I mean hard core IF you meet this criteria then you are in and lower ranked teams in the same criteria are not. Besides automatic conference champ bid that is!
I've tried to research the subject BUT found no such criteria.

My 2 cents:
PSU should further schedule ~itt  if they want several weeks each year of "The Scandal" broadcasted/discussed via every media outlet possible in Western PA.
Also, I would think you could count the number of spoken/shouted "Pe_  U" references by the hundreds of thousands!!!!  Maybe millions! 

P.S. Willing to listen to how this will be good for PSU in general or PSU football.

Makes me feel more comfortable in my thinking that the league had better players last year than this year!

« on: May 19, 2014, 12:04 PM »
Then for the bonus you bring back the old NBA 3 to make 2.

Interesting idea!!  But I don't think it would be enough to deter the intentional fouling. Remember the trailing team also fouls to stop the clock, to get the ball back and have a chance to made a 3 point shot.  That's the BIG issue! The team that was fouled can ONLY make a maximum of 2 points.
   
How about 4 to make 3? Still a slow boring process. But, it would be more "fair!"

I had not remembered seeing a bad theater movie in years. But, that changed this weekend.
I thought, Godzilla was poor. Real poor.
I also thought the first 1/2 of the new Spider Man movie was bad (I almost walked out)  BUT the 2nd half of the movie was very good.

If the refs would call the intentional foul as it's on the books, then, problem solved.
 
                     

I don't think this will happen in my lifetime! I think we need a different/better way!
