  • What’s on tonight/what is coming up

    I watched an old western the other night, "Nevada Smith", starring Steve McQueen.  I smiled at one line that had a Miami reference:  McQueen tells his compatriot "That McGuffey reader inside your shirt kept that knife away from your stomach."
  • 2019 MLB thread

    Cole finished with 326 K's for the season:  Good for third all time in the AL for strikeouts in a season.  The two in front of him are Nolan Ryan and Bob Feller.

    Cole also set a new MLB record for strikeout rate (40%), passing Pedro Martinez and Randy Johnson.
  • Women's World Cup

    I also served, and several of his former Green Beret colleagues have said his position on this issue is a disgrace.  Notwithstanding that, the bottom line is that he's entitled to his opinion, as we all are.  As I said, I question not Rapinoe's right to do this, but her judgment.  There are many avenues she could have pursued to make her point without taking actions that many people, including me, are offended by.  The flag symbolizes something far bigger than Rapinoe, Donald Trump, or anyone else.  

    This issue also highlights the infection of every part of life (academia, music, sports, TV, movies, etc.) by politics.  But that is a different discussion.

    Yay maybe our coaching staff can resume the duties of their employment at Miami University now.
    This reminds me of our football game at Notre Dame. Instead of going up there with a burning determination to win—and communicating that to the team—CM seemed to see himself as the leader of a pilgrimage to genuflect at the Golden Dome. Players pick up on that, we proceed to get drilled.

  • 2019 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament

    Just got back from the Wofford-Seton Hall game. Much heavy breathing! Fletcher Magee is unreal.
