Wichita St scored on a ball that bounced off a Cincinnati player's face. 

 

No idea how to embed the video.

I watched both highlights on YouTube and I cannot say which ranks higher because the baggy shorts all of the players are wearing in 2013 distracted me.

12/26/2017 - 7:11pm Seattle Mariners

One of the worst franchises of all time has to be the Seattle Mariners. In their 40 year history the team has only made the playoffs 4 times and is one of two teams to never make the World Series, the other being Expos turned Nationals. Seattle hasn’t made the playoffs since 2001 and that drought looks to continue well into the future.

All that being said, I continue to attend a handful of games a year.

Outside of Game 7 the pace of play would be upsetting. Totally understand it in this setting. Couldn’t agree more about the Dodger bullpen. It was supposed to be the strength of the Dodgers and it has seemed overworked this series.

Good stuff like always. I just ordered the gray hoodie.  Thanks for the info WD.

That, and it’s Oregon State, who else would they hire? Oregon State has Anderson now and they are still terrible. Riley was as good as they were going to get.

I hope that’s not true. I still like Fleck, but him to ND would end that real quick.

09/10/2017 - 11:57pm I have no idea if this is

I have no idea if this is even possible, but it seems like removing all knowledge of what is happening on the field might help.  Have the reviewer be offsite with no knowledge of score, time in the game, ect. and just have them watch the play and make a call.  

I also think officiating is bad because it is bad, but it also has never been scrutinized more.  With everyone watching at home in HD and with social media showing every possible error is it getting worse, or just more noticeable?  With that being said, when everyone in America knows the correct call, but the review still gets it wrong, that needs to be fixed.  

08/24/2017 - 1:29am He still made history

Rich Hill is the first pitcher in the last 100 seasons to throw at least 9 innings, allow 1 or fewer hits with no walks, and get a loss.

I live in Oregon and will be viewing Totality with my friend Petey and some coworkers.  I have been told there will be vodka, whiskey, various eclipse themed beers, mimosas, bloody mary’s, breakfast casserole, brisket, pasta salad, $40 in guacamole, and an abyss we are going to gather around to watch.

07/18/2017 - 1:27am .08 is for DMV

I know this is a texting crash but the DUI comparison is always brought up and I would love to shed some light on the subject because most people are terrible confused about what actually goes into a DUI arrest.

 

At least in Oregon .08 is strictly a number used for DMV when it comes to the license suspension portion of the process.  A person arrested for DUI that blows .07 is still getting arrested for DUI.  In Oregon a low blow does not mean you get off free.

 
WD mentioned above that texting and driving should be treated like DUI.  In Oregon depending on the circumstance the statute of Reckless Driving could apply to a driver that was texting.  The driving while texting statute is only a violation so no arrest can be made but DUI and Reckless Drive are both A Misdemeanors. The DUI does carry the penalty of license suspension and cost a ton for the classes that follow the arrest.  DUI that results in a crash and injury is much more sever however.

 

Hope that all made some sense.  If there is interest, maybe one of these days I will create a DUI info thread and try to clean up some of the misconceptions people have about the process and what it actually means to get a DUI.

06/08/2017 - 11:54pm Fenway Last Year

This doesnt entirely fit but it is one of my best ever moments

Last year my dad and I flew from Oregon to Boston to see the Seattle Mariners play at Fenway.  It has always been a dream to visit all of the ballparks and the Red Sox put together a package that included hotel, authentic jersey, on field tour, and seats on the Green Monster. 

Neither one of us realized that the game we attended was on Father's Day until we were standing on the warning track in front of the manual score board getting our picture taken with the date written out above us.  The game was nothing special and the Mariners lost, but being at Fenway with my dad on Father's Day was a best ever moment that will be hard to beat.

05/09/2017 - 11:19pm Delorean

I have a Wrangler that I love but will be selling soon. Not because I want to, but I need the money to buy a truck that I will get more use out of.

 

My irrational car would be a Delorean.  If I win the lottery that will be one of the cars I buy.

That sucks balls. Living in Oregon I was looking forward to the quick trip north to watch Michigan play in the rare Pacific Northwest trip. Hope the schedule stays the as is.

Two Hearted Ale - I heard on the radio news update today that a company in china is working on single person drones. Put in a destination and it does all the work to get you there.

I have purchased two long sleeve and a handful of t-shirts and love them all.  Only one shirt had a weird fit but after looking at reviews that specific shirt was that way for everyone.  I am hoping I can get back to the employee store and get stuff at a reasonable price.

 

I like the look of the stuff the players are wearing and I think Nike has done a great job so far.

Never bothered to come up with a good cat name so we just stuck with calling it Kitten. Now I have an 8 year old cat named Kitten.

A superior of mine is a big OSU fan. He admits the game was terribly officiated and we have had some good conversations about the game. He is obviously happy with the outcome but he at least agrees the refs were terrible.

11/16/2016 - 8:58pm Felix

Reminds of when Felix Hernandez lost a couple of years ago.  He was lights out all year and had one bad outing in Toronto; his second to last start of the year, which lost him the Cy Young to Kluber.

The remark puts her in conversation for greatest tweet of all time. Additionally we learned they've moved beyond light petting.

“If there are others out there who have been victimized in this manner, we encourage them to contact us to get the justice they deserve."

 

I do hope that if there is other victims they get the help and justice they deserve, but this reads more like a daytime infomercial for a law firm.  I wonder if it could have been worded better to avoid that.

Everyone will say "win and they are in" which is true. It is nice to see Michigan stay in the top four though.

I would imagine more people would watch this game on a Friday than on a Saturday.  When you’re the only game on TV people will watch similar to MACtion.  I watch the Thursday night game every week not because I care about the teams or players, but because it is college football.  

 

That being said, I have no idea how a Friday night game will be received when that night has traditionally been a high school football night and people tend to away from the TV in general.

11/07/2016 - 11:40pm Melrose

I am a casual hockey fan so I cant tell what is solid analysis and what is just crap, but I had always enjoyed Melrose.  Then I saw some segment with Melrose in a "bistro" and it was cheap looking, cheesy, and lame which is my feeling about most of ESPN.

The crowd noise from Game 5 sounded like a Game 7.  The fans were living and dying with each pitch and made it that much more fun to watch.

11/01/2016 - 10:32am The cashier was an Ohio State

The cashier was an Ohio State fan and said she was getting sick of so many people buying Michigan gear. She also said that merchandise is usually updated every couple of weeks so I am hoping to go back and do my Christmas shopping if I can get another pass.

11/01/2016 - 2:50am Nike

I was lucky enough to get a pass for the Nike employee store a couple of weeks ago and spent about $350 on just Michigan gear.  I was surprised that the Michigan section was so much bigger than the Oregon or Oregon State section and had some really good prices.  They had these shoes for $50.  Had I known they were selling for $110 on MDen I probably would have purchased a few and sold them on here.
