    Terry Francona Named Honorary Chair for this Year's U.S. Senior Open in Newport June 26-30

    I am a volunteer on the Scoring Committee for the event. Play today was rather bland I thought. No one really seized the day and - although great shots and putts obviously were made, there didn't seem to be a distant roar on very many occasions. Fujita and Green were in the earliest start...

    The Final

    Well, the post-game on-ice celebration was about as subdued as it could be. Maybe they should have cued up ACDC's Thunderstruck (although that may have been taboo given Tampa Bay's leanings).

    1Lee named new assistant at Penn State. Lee will be joining Sanderson, Casey Cunningham, and Cody Sanderson as official coaches at Penn State. That is one helluva an addition to astellar staff.

    I thought exactly the same thing. But he is now reaching long-tooth stage at 33. I mean, the oldest freestyle medaler at the Olympics is Chris Campbell @ 37 (a month shy of his 38th), so maybe there are still miles in the tank, but that door has to be closing shut. And, I'll say it again...

    2 developments in the NCAA wrestling world: 1) Carter Starocci announces his return for his 5th year, setting up the potential for the first 5-time national championship. 2) Penn State legend David Taylor accepts HC position at Okie State. Cael's got some recruiting challenges ahead.

    Ditto. But Brooks left no doubt about the matter, defeating Taylor in two consecutive matches. To my eye, Brooks just seemed a quarter step quicker. And I can't imagine the last time Taylor went down via a double-leg shot. Brooks just bull dozed him. And, in a couple of tight spots, Brooks...

    Presenting in its entirety to reflect Penn State's and associated NLWC's dominance in this event. In all, I was most impressed by Aaron Brooks (vs. David Taylor) and Mitchell Mesenbrink, with a shoutout to Alex Facundo, who Olympic-redshirted and didn't wrestle a single match, but who...

    I caught it late, but was that a HS senior that Carter Starocci suffered his first takedown of the year?

    A lot of great younger wrestlers making a show and challenging - and beating - vets. I'm also impressed with the women. Some tough competitors here.

    @Ale Xander Yeah, these are trials and typically are not a big draw. That said, with Penn State's recent national championship and MANY Lion alumni (David Taylor, Zane Retheford, Vincenzo Joseph, Nick Lee, Jason Nolf, others) and NLWC (Nittany Lion Wrestling Club) members (Kyle Snyder, Kyle...

    If you were a ballplayer...

    This was at Penn State in the mid '70s. I had a friend who was really into the game and had visions of setting up a national professional league. I mean, this guy was all in. He started off by setting up a competitive league on campus and I guess he attracted maybe 200 players, perhaps 20 of...

    I was a collegiate air hockey champion. I don't think I could be any better than that. Although I was actually a very good Frisbee golf player as well in its earliest, earliest years.
