I thought some on the board might appreciate a heads up about a Comcast Watchathon. If you use the On Demand feature and go to the Watchathon you have access to some HBO and Showtime shows without a subscription. Game of Thrones and Dexter were the two that caught my eye.
HS kid almost breaks Larry Allen's 705lb NFL record as a 17yr old - impressive.
Just saw this on ESPN, and honestly, I think there's merit to Costa Rica's protest. I can't believe they finished that game. Conditions were terrible, and I'm pretty sure everyone in America would be crying for a replay if we had ended up on the wrong side of the score. That said, the decision is up to FIFA. Do you think they'll force a replay? And if so, what are the implications of that? Would the U.S. still retain any points for the win, or would the first game be erased from the history books?
With only 2 episodes left there should be lots of action today and next Sunday. More Tyrese please!
I appologize to the board for my tardy response with the SB games this weekend. I was feeling ill yesterday and went to The Palace today. We opened the Big Ten season at home against Purdue.
The first game Friday was a 9-0 Mercy-Rule 5-inning win. Sierra Romero had 2 home runs and Caitlyn Blanchard hit 1. Sara Driesenga pitched all 5 innings. She gave up 4 hits and had 7 Ks and 0 BB.
Today, the teams played a double header. We won the first game 13-6 in a 6-inning mercy-rule win. Sierra Romero went long again going 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Sierra Lawrence went 2 for 3 with 3 RBI and 2 runs scored. Lyndsay, Ashley, and Caitlin had 2 hits apiece.
Sara picked up the win in relief by pitching the last 2 innings. She had 1 K and 0 BB. Haylie pitched 4 innings and gave up 5 runs off 8 hits. She struck out 2 and walked 1.
In the final game played today, we won 8-7 in a close one. Caitlin Blanchard kept up her torrid pace and push for All-American status by going 2 for 5 with 1 RBI and 1 runs scored. Ashley went long and finished 2 for 4 with 4 RBIs.
Haylie picked up the win in relief by pitching the final 5 innings. She had 4 Ks and 0 BB. Sara started and gave up 7 runs off 5 hits. She had 3 Ks and 1 BB.
