  1. Past hour
  2. Landestoy starting again today at 1B.
  3. West Virginia is leading 3-2 in the top of the 8th over OU in their resumption game from yesterday. More interestingly, the announcer for the game just referred to the ballpark in Granville/Morgantown, West Virginia as "Mongolia County Ballpark" on air.
  4. Don Meredith, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback once said : “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.” "Last year we couldn't win at home and we were losing on the road My failure as a coach was that I couldn't think of anyplace else to play.”- Harry Neale, professional hockey coach "Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch."- Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver. "I'm working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time. If I can just die after lunch Tuesday, everything will be perfect."- Doug Sanders, professional golfer "All the fat guys watch me and say to their wives, 'See, there's a fat guy doing okay. Bring me another beer.'"- Mickey Lolich, Detroit Tigers pitcher "When it's third and ten, you can have the milk drinkers; I'll take the whiskey drinkers every time."- Max McGee, Green Bay Packers receiver "I found out that it's not good to talk about my troubles. Eighty percent of the people who hear them don't care and the other twenty percent are glad I'm having them."- Tommy LaSorda , L A Dodgers manager "My knees look like they lost a knife fight with a midget."- E.J. Holub, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker regarding his 12 knee operations "My theory is that if you buy an ice-cream cone and make it hit your mouth, you can learn to play tennis. If you stick it on your forehead, your chances aren't as good.” - Vic Braden, tennis instructor "When they operated, I told them to add in a Koufax fastball. They did, but unfortunately it was Mrs. Koufax's."- Tommy John , N.Y. Yankees, recalling his 1974 arm surgery "I don't know. I only played there for nine years."- Walt Garrison, Dallas Cowboys fullback when asked if Tom Landry ever smiles. "We were tipping off our plays. Whenever we broke from the huddle, three backs were laughing and one was pale as a ghost.” - John Breen, Houston Oilers "The film looks suspiciously like the game itself."- Bum Phillips, New Orleans Saints, after viewing a lopsided loss to the Atlanta Falcons. When I'm on the road, my greatest ambition is to get a standing boo."- Al Hrabosky, major league relief pitcher "I have discovered in 20 years of moving around the ball park that the knowledge of the game is usually in inverse proportion to the price of the seats."- Bill Veeck, Chicago White Sox owner. “Because if it didn't work out, I didn't want to blow the whole day."- Paul Horning, Green Bay Packers running back on why his marriage ceremony was before noon. "I have a lifetime contract. That means I can't be fired during the third quarter if we're ahead and moving the ball."- Lou Holtz , Arkansas football coach "I won't know until my barber tells me on Monday."- Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had lost a game "I tell him "Attaway to hit, George."- Jim Frey, K.C. Royals manager when asked what advice he gives George Brett on hitting. "I learned a long time ago that 'minor surgery' is when they do the operation on someone else, not you."- Bill Walton, Portland Trial Blazers "Our biggest concern this season will be diaper rash."- George MacIntyre, Vanderbilt football coach surveying the team roster that included 26 freshmen and 25 sophomores. "The only difference between me and General Custer is that I have to watch the films on Sunday."- Rick Venturi, Northwestern football coach
  5. Big thanks to Jared for keeping us all up to date with the tennis program. Can't wait to see what they can do in Athens.
  6. Just an FYI, since they do not have their own thread that I recall. (Though that doesn't mean there isn't one) The Beach Volleyball team is ranked #13 at the end of the regular season. The selection announcement for the NCAA tournament is Sunday at 6pm central. While they are not in the top 8, I think there was some discussion that due to selection guidelines, they have a shot to make it in to the 8 team tournament. I don't follow it close enough to know if the chance is very realistic, but I will wish them luck, just in case. http://www.ncaa.com/championships/beach-volleyball/nc
  7. AD's boys.
  8. They're always making it about themselves.
  9. Great tournament, now lets do it again with the NCAAs.
  10. Truth.
  11. Today
  12. FROGS FOR THE WIN!! Woot!
  13. That's ^^a good article. It doesn't talk about the aftermath of destroying the reactors and nuclear stockpiles, though. That is what concerns me as much as the loss of life to our service personnel and allies. We have US territories in the region who will be vulnerable to the effects of nuclear fallout.
  14. -Arrieta took his first L of the season last night against the Red Sox, giving up 5 runs and 10 hits in just over 4 innings of work. He's now 3-1 with and saw his ERA swell to 4.66. Next start is this coming Wednesday at home against the Phillies. -Cashner gave up two runs in 4 IP in his last start for the Rangers, but took the L to drop to 0-2 with a 2.93 ERA. Next start is Monday night against the Astros at Enron Field. -Carpenter, as mentioned above, had the walk-off grand slam against the Blue Jays (it was off of former UT pitcher J.P. Howell) earlier this week. He's now batting .250 with 3 HR and 11 RBI. -No update this week on Finnegan's DL stint.
  15. AAA: -Stefan Crichton tossed an inning and two-thirds of scoreless relief for Norfolk in his first outing since being sent back down by the Orioles. -Matt Purke is scoreless over his last four relief appearances for Charlotte (White Sox), lowering his ERA to 3.00 -Taylor Featherston has hit safely in 2 of his last 3 starts for Lehigh Valley (Phillies), but his batting average has dipped from .231 to .212 -Bryan Holaday has 5 RBI during his current 4-game hit streak for Toledo (Tigers), and hit his first home run of the season. -Chad Huffman had his 5-game hit streak snapped for Memphis (Cardinals), and his average has leveled off a bit to its current .250 -Jantzen Witte has 7 RBI during his current 7-game hit streak going for Pawtucket (Red Sox), raising his batting average to .289 -Kyle Winkler has given up one run over 3 IP in his first two relief appearances for Durham (Rays).

I'll avoid posting his current ERA. -Jerrick Suiter has started 4-for-15 (.287) through 4 games for Advanced-A Bradenton (Pirates) Mexican League: -Jerome Pena has hit safely in his last two starts for Vaqueros Union Laguna. Status still uncertain: -Nick Frey is still listed on MiLB.com as being active for Class A Peoria (Cardinals), but isn't listed on the Peoria roster on their website -Trey Teakell has been on the disabled list for Class A West Michigan (Tigers) since before the 2016 season began. He's still on the roster on the team site, but has no assigned jersey number. -Brian Trieglaff - ended last season with Short Season-A Staten Island (Yankees), and is still listed as being active though their season hasn't yet started. -Rex Hill - ended last season with the Royals' team in the Arizona Rookie League and is still listed as being active
  16. I'm only attempting to raise the cultural awareness of our home on the interwebz.
  17. In 1 hour and 37 minutes, TCU sweeps Tech 4-0 and win the Big12 tournament championship easily! Tech played like the last place team and TCU played like the #4 team in the nation. We won the doubles point, and Johnson, Stalder and Norrie won at singles! Two straight tourney championships! 14 straight matches! 19-4! This is such a turnaround from earlier this season! WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! Norrie as Most Outstanding Player! Championship glasses for all! More trophies!
  18. Cincinatti has had 6 picks so far. None of which has been an offensive lineman. I guess theyre okay with AD getting ear holed 5 times a game.
  19. Crichton was optioned back to Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles
  20. And generally I would agree with them, and would (and have) attempted and then passed on most of your suggestions. But this particular one is written well enough, and has acting superb enough to overcome it.
  21. On to the singles! Let's hope it's as dominating as the doubles. Norrie 2-0; Rybakov 1-0; Nunez 0-1; Lopez 1-0; Johnson 1-0; Stalder 1-0. Good start! Norrie 2-1; Rybakov 2-0; Nunez 0-2; Lopez 1-1; Johnson 3-0; Stalder 2-0. No problema. Norrie 3-1; Rybo 4-0; Nunez 0-3; Lopez 2-1; Johnson 3-1; Stalder 3-0. How did Tech beat Baylor and OU? Norrie 4-1; Rybakov 5-1; Nunez 1-3; Lopez 2-all; Johnson 4-1; Stalder 3-0. Norrie 5-1; Rybo wins his 1st set 6-2!; Nunez 2-4; Lopez 2-4; Johnson wins his set 6-1!; Stalder 5-0! Norrie wins 6-1; Rybo 6-2, 1-0; Nunez 3-4; Lopez 3-4; Johnson 6-1, 1-1; Stalder wins 6-0 and gets a bagel! That's 4 first sets TCU has won! Nunez and Lopez both lose 3-6 in their first sets so Tech's not totally out of it. All 2nd sets: Norrie 1-1; Rybo 1-1; Nunez 0-0; Lopez 0-0; Johnson 3-1; Stalder 2-0. Coverage is scheduled til 1:30, but this will be over before that. Cam, 3-1; Rybo 3-1; Nunez 1-1; Lopez 1-0; TJ 4-2; Stalder 4-0. Norrie 3-2; Rybakov 3-1; Nunez 2-1; Lopez 3-0; Johnson 5-3; Stalder 5-0. Johnson wins 6-1, 6-3 and the Frogs move to 2-0 overall! Norrie 5-3; Rybakov 4-2; Nunez 3-2; Lopez 4-1; Stalder 5-1. It's a race to see who can clinch it! Stalder wins 6-0, 6-1! 3-0! Norrie wins and the Frogs win the Big12!!
  22. Here's some interesting reading: http://www.businessinsider.com/us-preemptive-strike-north-korea-2017-3/#then-the-us-defends-7
  23. I think priority one would be to take out their launch facilities. Or maybe send in James Franco.
  24. Subtle...
  25. And we're off! Lopez/Stalder 2-0; Nunez/Rybakov 1-1; Norrie/Johnson 1-1. Looking very good! Lopez/Stalder 3-0; Nunez/Rybakov 2-1; Norrie/Johnson 2-1. 3-1 on all 3 courts. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Lopez/Stalder 4-1; Nunez/Rybo 4-1; Norrie/Johnson 4-1. 5-1; 4-2, 4-1. The TV guys describing it as "absolute domination!" Lopez/Stalder 6-1 in commanding fashion! 5-2 on both other courts. Norrie/Johnson 6-2! And it's 1-0 TCU leading!
  26. I don't think he's bald, but he is kind of a brat. Not as much as A.J. Catanzariti for the Aggies though. In a late change, Pyry Hyrkkonen will be playing #6 at singles for Tech. The TV coverage just came on! I can hardly believe I'm actually gonna get to see the Frogs on the tube!
  27. It's nice you recognize that. 😀
