|1 day 9 hours ago||The catcher wasn't paying attention||
almost surely that's what the runner noticed during previous pitches. The runner starts heading home as the catcher is on his knees starting his non-chalant throw back to the pitcher. (Al Kaline would have said he non-chalants it. My late father hated that butchering of the language.)
Anybody know how many outs there were? That's a smart play with two outs. Nobody out and nobody on 2nd & 3rd, not so much.

But while checking to see if the runner would have been safe if the catcher had caught the ball (@15 seconds, he would have been safe), I noticed the left fielder was scratching his nuts.
For all of the sporting world to see! Ha ha.

It's an awkward, British way to say that I've celebrated them with far too many drinks, but hey, remember I'm drunk!
"for deserting the program"
"but also can't really blame them"

In my first days in JV football, one of the players speech was a little slurred. Back in the day, high school started in 10th grade, and so I didn't know the kid from the different junior high he attended. Plus I was talked into joining the team at the beginning of school, so I missed any introductions in August.
My impression of the kid was that he must be a little mentally slow. Until one day I found out that he was deaf after it became obvious while he was translating to sign language for another deaf student.
I was--pardon the pun--dumbfounded. For a good ~month, I had no inclination that he could not hear. My impression of him jumped to amazement on learning he was able to speak functionally without ever hearing a word.

Tiger has to get his act together to catch or surpass Jack Nicklaus' major wins record of 18.
What once seemed certain is now has to be considered a possibility of declining likelihood.
Tiger had won 14 by the conclusion of the 2008 season in which Tiger was 32 while Nicklaus had only won 11 by the conclusion of the 1972 season in which Jack was 32. Tiger entered this year at 38 years old still on 14 wins. Jack entered the 1978 season at 38 years old at 14 wins, but would win his 15th later in the year at The Open. Wins 16 and 17 came at age 40, and then Jack won one for the old guys, taking his 18th at The Masters at age 46 (which is still the record for the oldest Masters' champion).
Jack Nicklaus' Major Wins 15-18

Gotta root for the guy older than me.
I saw his name on the ESPN leaderboard and wondered if it was his son.

Round of 32 if you must, but definitely not "3rd Round".

|1 week 2 days ago||Non championship game Final Four participants||
get forgotten pretty quickly.
How many years can you go back naming the non championship game participants? (WIthout looking.)
(Qualification: I hafta admit, I can name recent B1G champions by memory only as far back as Michigan has been competitive. Now that we compete for the B1G title every year, I expect I'll be able to name a longer history.)
Also, my wife was shocked that I could name the National Champion back to the mid 70s. Probably could go back further by just guessing UCLA.

Christian Laettner and Bobby Hurley in their senior years. Talent like that is long gone to the NBA in 2014.
Unfortunately, if UK's five freshmen win tonight, they will have done something the Fab Five never did, qualitative differences notwithstanding.

Oh, here comes that guy of so-so skill. We'll just let him take the last very-well compensated spot on the team because he "looks the part".
I didn't know Hollywood actors had such an advantage in NBA tryouts.

who jumped to block his pump fake.
A deadly, quick-release shot is a great athletic equalizer. Of course, it has to be deadly and quick release, kinda like saying buy low, sell high.

How many MLB teams had four-game winning streaks last year?
I would guess all of them, even 0.315 Houston, which you would expect to have had a four-game winning streak once out of every 101 rolling four-game windows = 1/ (0.315^4)
