"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
I heard about Petoskey's own Bruce Wayne through an AP article this morning and knew I would have to go straight to the source for more information. The Petoskey News has the full story on their very own Caped Crusader. Enjoy:
Anybody consistently watched this guy pitch? He's sporting a 16+ K/9 after last inning's performance and his breaking ball is practically unhittable when locating his fastball. Reminds me a ton of Carlos Marmol of the Cubs in that he only throws two pitches yet they are both so effective you're constantly off balance.
1 Week of no WTKA podcasts on iTunes. When will the madness end?
Last week I was grinding my hands at a stop light listing to SportsRadio (pick one) and the "clown with the Mike" stated. "I really don't like Wings chances winning 4 of 5." upon the Wings return for game three. Seven Game series are so limited on their analysis, so whether or not the Wings can make it or not is yet to be seen. Through 12 months of sports I cant get through the sporting calendar without hearing "Tackling In Space" or "Walk Off Homer."
Whether it is "Boo Ya" or whatever I would like your input on what terms and phrases need to be eliminated for the goodness of all sporting mankind.
Love the Blog, I'll Hang Up and Listen
The Michigan Softball team won again today aganist Minny 8-1. This comes off a lack-luster 4-2 victory yesterday. Game-time temperature was 64 degrees under sunny skies.
Jordan Taylor got the start today. Hutch is starting the "tourney run" today by pitching JT in back to back games. I suspect JT will get the ball from here on out. Hutch has been very good at not over pitching JT this year. JT has 205 IP and SS has 120 IP. Hutch has given Stephanie an equal amount of innings so that JT doesnt get burned out. Now, with JT all tuned up, JT can begin the chase for the NC.
JT finished the day with 6 innings pitched. She gave up 1 ER off 6 hits, with 10Ks, 3 BB and 1 HBP. Stephanie Speierman came in the 7th to close it down.
With her 10 strikeouts today, senior RHP Jordan Taylor has registered double-digit strikeouts in four of Michigan's last six games. She is the only Michigan pitcher in program history to surpass 250 strikeouts in each of her collegiate seasons.
Amy Knapp was the offensive hero today by going 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs and 1 run scored. Amanda Chidester went 2 for 2 with 2 RBIs and a run scored. Bree Evans went 2 for 4 with a RBI and run scored.
We dominated this game from the first pitch. We came very close to another mercy rule win. We play 2 against Lil Sister next weekend in a home and home series. The Tournament pairings should be out Monday 16th or Tuesday the 17th with the tourney starting on Friday the 20th.
The Buckeyes just won the mens NCAA volleyball title.
