Hump Day Thoughts on Sports – 10/17/12

by Steve Farace

Did you ever get pressured into doing something? Of course you have. You have been pressured into doing a lot of things. Some legal and some not. I am being attacked left and right because I have yet to watch The Walking Dead! Get off my back already! I know it is a great show and it is breaking records left and right, but give me a chance to get to it, will ya! Scott has been the worst of them all – he attacked me last week and then again on yesterday’s podcast! I made a guarantee on the podcast to watch the first two episodes of the series by next week. We shall see.

Coaches Corner – 4/7/12

by Yankee Todd,

A real man would never eat, nor order boneless chicken wings.

The other day, while on lunch duty at our high school where we both work, One Office Down and I were discussing Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway.  I swore that I had seen him play recently for someone in the NBA.

I was wrong but when I Googled his name but discovered a fascinating article about “Penny” that gave me a new found respect for the former NBA star.

Coaches Corner – 3/29/12

by Yankee Todd

The NCAA tournament is filled with many memories.  One Shining Moment is the perfect song for the tournament.  Can you believe that it has been 20 years since Christian Laettner hit his miracle shot to defeat Kentucky in the tourney?

The game couldn’t have had more twists and turns.  Overtime.  A chance to go to the Final Four.  Two legendary coaches in Mike Krzyzewski and Rick Pitino matching wits.  Five lead changes in the last 30 seconds of overtime.

With 2.1 seconds left, Kentucky scored to make it 103-102.

The rest is history.

Coach’s Corner 4

The Passing of Joe Paterno

I debated how to write this article all day. Do I talk about Joe Paterno’s accomplishments as a coach or his lack of acting in biggest “game” of his life? Paterno won more games in college football history than any coach and recently passed away at age 85. But when presented with news that long time Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually molesting young boys, Paterno failed to make a goal line stand that was needed.

America is a society that is quick to forgive. But should we forgive Paterno? Paterno, by all accounts, reported the information to administration. When nothing happened, Paterno moved forward. Did he have trouble sleeping? Did he think that the information was not accurate? Did he directly confront Sandusky?
