Baseball All-Star Game

Posted on by

first_imgAs you have seen in some of my past blogs, I really have no interest in All-Star games.  Baseball is no exception.  I do not agree with the premise that the winning league gets home field advantage in the World Series this fall.  The team with the best record in baseball should get the home field advantage because they earned it on the field.I also do not agree with how the All-Stars are chosen.  I want to see the All-Stars for this year–not a team picked by which city voted the most on their computers.  I will probably start watching the All-Star game tonight, but at 9 p.m. I will turn to TNT and watch Rizzoli & Isles  By 9 p.m. I am already bored with the All-Star game.last_img

Arteta: We’ll be ready for City

Posted on by

first_imgMidfielder Mikel Arteta cannot understand Arsenal’s hectic schedule – but maintains the players will be out to make a “big statement” with victory at Manchester City in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off. “The mood will be fine, but the recovery time is very tight,” said the Spaniard. “I don’t understand why we play Sunday afternoon, then in Naples on Wednesday, getting back to London at four o’clock in the morning (on Thursday) and then we are going to play again on Saturday morning in Manchester. “However, there is not much we can do, so we just have to prepare well and be ready for it because they will be ready for us as they rested several players for their European game on Tuesday night. “However, there can be no excuses, we have to be ready, we want to win there and have to be prepared. “We know it can be a big statement if we get a good result there, so that is what we want.” Arsenal needed only a point against Napoli to be sure of top spot in Group F and with it seeding for the knockout stage. However, after their loss at the Stadio San Paulo – where midfielder Arteta was sent off in the second half – coupled with a late winner for Dortmund in Marseille, Wenger’s men are now likely to face one of Real Madrid, Paris St Germain, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid or Barcelona when the draw is made on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland. Arteta, though, feels Arsenal will present testing opposition for any of the seeded sides. Arsene Wenger’s squad have little recovery time following their midweek Champions League 2-0 defeat away to Napoli as they try to get themselves up for the challenge which awaits at the Etihad Stadium. Arteta, though, is confident the squad will be ready as they look to extend their five-point lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League before then tackling another of their title rivals when Chelsea are at the Emirates Stadium on December 23. “You are looking at the top teams who have won their group, so it is tough, but let’s see what happens,” he said. “I am sure, though, that they will not be happy to play against us as well. “On our day, we have shown that we can compete with any team in Europe, but you are making it tougher for yourself (by finishing second). “However, if someone had said before that you are going to be through, we would be happy with that, but with the position we were in, we wanted to finish first. “Now we know we will face some really difficult opposition in the next round so it is disappointing to lose the game, but at least we are through and can take some positives because it was a really tough group.” Arteta labelled his sending off at the Stadio Sao Paulo – where he was shown two yellow cards in the second half by Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai – as a “joke”. He said: “With the second one, he is on the floor before I got there, so I am very disappointed. “They made 20 fouls in the first half, and then I made two in the whole game. “I thought it was very harsh and unfair.” England forward Theo Walcott could be in contention to start against City, while full-back Bacary Sagna may also be fit following his hamstring problem. German forward Lukas Podolski, meanwhile, stayed in London this week to step up his rehabilitation after a torn hamstring sidelined him since the second leg of the Champions League qualifier against Fenerbahce in late August.

Kwakwani in must win game against Jets tonight

Posted on by

first_imgNEWCOMERS Kwakwani are in a must win situation this evening if they hope to reach the final four of the Linden Amateur Basketball Association (LABA) / Hamid Foundation Under 23 championship,when they face Amelia’s Ward Jets from 18.30hrs sharp at the Mackenzie Sports Club hard court.Nothing but a win can guarantee the Kwakwani side reaching the semifinals since they will give way to Bankers Trust Falcons should they lose as the other team with the jets to come out of their group.The Kwakwani side has found itself in this position because they forfeited one game they won after it was discovered that they played with an ineligible player in their opening game which they had won.This decision was taken after that game and therefore Falcons,who have four points from one win and two losses after three round of matches, will move on should Kwakwani lose and finish on three points from a win and a loss with the other being forfeited.Should Kwawkani win they will have four points along withFalcons,but having defeated the Falcons in their head-to- head clash,they will go through as the number two team with the jets as number one in Group B.Jets then will top the group play to face Raiders, as they currently are on four points from two wins, and a loss will give them five points.This game is of great importance therefore in deciding the match-ups in the semifinals as the top team in Group B from this clash will play the second placed team in Group A,which is Retrieve Raiders while unbeaten Half Mile Bulls topped group A with six points from three wins while Raiders ended on five from two wins and a loss.The second game between Block 22 Flames and Christianburg Pistons is of academic interest as neither can reach the semifinals of this competition.The game starts at 20.30hrs.(Joe Chapman)last_img read more

USC philanthropy center appoints new advisers

Posted on by

first_imgThe USC Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy chose a new chairman and added three new members to its board of advisers, a move that is designed to increase the center’s charitable power and sustainability.   The center, whose mission statement says it aims to be a “catalyst for understanding and action at the intersection of the public, private and nonprofit sectors,” proposes new members via its nominating committee, which recommends a list of candidates to the dean. The dean then appoints new members. The new additions this year include Margo Leonetti O’Connell, president and trustee of the Leonetti O’Connell Family Foundation; Lisa Fredricks Parker, president and executive director of the Lawrence Welk Family Foundation; and Trent Stamp, executive director of The Eisner Foundation.The board’s new chair, Fred J. Ali, serves as the president and chief executive officer of the Weingart Foundation, one of Southern California’s oldest and most well-known nonprofits for the underrepresented and homeless.New board members serve a renewable three-year term and provide connections to philanthropic and non-profit organizations, help to shape and inform the board’s intellectual agenda, and work to grow the center’s reach and impact.   The center holds several forums and roundtables, convening key decision makers from the non-profit and community sectors to explore emerging issues, discuss research findings and consider strategies for action. Additionally, they hold several speaker series and seminars to examine contemporary issues facing the three sectors of focus.Clarification: 10/2/10: New board chair Fred Ali is still the president and chief executive officer of the Weingart Foundation; a previous version of the story misidentified Mr. Ali as the former president and chief executive officer. This entry has been updated to reflect the change.last_img read more

Big dance or bust: Following 2 NIT appearances, SU vows it is too talented to miss NCAAs again

Posted on by

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: mjcohe02@syr.edu | @Michael_Cohen13center_img For those 77 minutes, Iasia Hemingway will always be grateful. Deep in the heart of Iowa, she had that once-in-a-lifetime moment. Stepping out onto the biggest stage was something she could never forget. And she did it twice. Hemingway experienced what it’s like to play in the NCAA tournament over the course of three games in back-to-back seasons at Georgia Tech in 2008 and 2009. Though her team never made it past the second round, the magnitude of the achievement wasn’t lost on Hemingway — even as an 18-year-old freshman in 2008. ‘That’s the best experience of your life,’ Hemingway said. ‘Not too many teams can go to the tournament. So I embraced it, and I just sat back and enjoyed it.’ Following 2009, Hemingway transferred to Syracuse to be closer to her home in New Jersey. As the only player on SU’s roster with multiple NCAA tournament games under her belt, Hemingway hopes to lead the Orange back there for the first time in three years.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Ever since that one trip in head coach Quentin Hillsman’s second season, it’s been two disappointing trips to the WNIT. Now Hemingway joins a team in which 13 of the 14 players on the roster were top 100 recruits, and six of those 13 players were ranked in the top 50 out of high school. With a roster as loaded with potential as this year’s, Hemingway said, anything less than a trip to the NCAA tournament would be a lost season. ‘It would be a disappointment not to make it to the NCAA tournament,’ she said. ‘Because we’re too talented not to.’ In reality, this year’s talent has been four years in the making for Hillsman. It’s the combination of his 2007, 2009 and 2010 classes that give this team a world of potential. Following last season, Syracuse lost arguably the best player in program history with the departure of all-time leading scorer and rebounder Nicole Michael. During her four years with the Orange, she witnessed the influx of talent and the higher-quality players who were coming to Syracuse. She knew she was the best player on the team when she first stepped onto the court as a freshman. That year, she led the team in scoring and recorded the most points in a season in SU history. But as her career wore on, that trend started to change. Her sophomore year, she was fourth on the team in scoring average. Her junior year, third. And it wasn’t until this past season, as a senior, that she led the team again. ‘The talent went from me being the top player on the team,’ Michael said in an e-mail. ‘And as years went by, Coach Hillsman brought in All-Americans and top 100 players.’ Michael first witnessed this higher-level talent with the arrival of Hillsman’s 2007 recruiting class. That class, which was ranked as high as No. 11 in the nation by All-Star Girls Report, contained current senior guards Erica Morrow and Tasha Harris — the only other two players with NCAA tournament experience. Morrow, who was the program’s first McDonald’s All-American, is now a senior, watching the same increase in talent continue into 2010. ‘We have a lot of great younger players coming in,’ Morrow said. ‘You want to keep building and just to show the girls what that NCAA tournament feels like.’ Hillsman put together another Top 25 recruiting class in 2009 when Carmen Tyson-Thomas, Elashier Hall and Kayla Alexander all signed on. Last season, those three players combined to average 20 points and 13.4 rebounds per game. And this year’s class of incoming freshmen was the highest ranked class of Hillsman’s time at Syracuse. Collegiate Girl’s Basketball Report tabbed it as the nation’s eighth-best group, with the likes of No. 19 Rachel Coffey and Hemingway, the transfer from Georgia Tech. When Hemingway takes the court on Nov. 12, she will become the highest-rated high school recruit to ever put on an SU jersey. Hemingway was ranked as high as the No. 12 player in the nation coming out of high school. ‘I believe this is the best talent we’ve had since I’ve been here,’ senior point guard Harris said. In terms of recruiting, Hillsman has done his job. ‘That’s what you have to have,’ said Dan Olson, women’s basketball recruiting analyst and director of Collegiate Girls Basketball Report. ‘Those back-to-back-to-back top classes in order for you to succeed. … That’s a tribute to him and his ability to recruit. I applaud his efforts.’ But stockpiling talented recruits doesn’t automatically translate to success on the court. And Hillsman is the first to acknowledge that. A team goes beyond talent, he said. That’s why it is so hard to predict what this Syracuse team can do in 2010. The team was picked ninth in the Big East preseason poll, but experts such as Olson and Bret McCormick of All-Star Girls Report see this team finishing anywhere from fifth to 10th. Even Hillsman is unsure about exactly what his team will be like. ‘To have a good team is so different than being talented,’ he said. ‘It’s going to depend on how they gel as a unit. It’s really going to be how we come together, how we play together. It’s just camaraderie.’ Last year’s team is a perfect example. On paper, that team ranked third in the league in points per game, first in offensive rebounds per game and third in field-goal percentage defense. Yet in reality, last year’s team finished ninth in the Big East with a 7-9 conference record and lost four of its last six games to close the regular season. Six of its losses came by five points or fewer. When it mattered, the team didn’t click. ‘Now that the team’s talent is increasing every year, they all have to come together and make a commitment to not settle for less than their talent abilities,’ Michael said. ‘The talent is already there. It takes full focus and trust.’ In a way, Hillsman challenged his players to step up even before they sat down to talk about goals for the 2010 season. All they had to do was look at the schedule. Staring the players in the face are two games against preseason Top 10 teams. And that’s exactly what Hillsman wanted. He even called the director of the Bahamas Sunsplash Shootout tournament and asked to play Baylor, the No. 2 team in the country, first. It really does sound crazy. ‘I said, ‘We want to come, and we want to play Baylor first,” Hillsman said. ‘And he goes, ‘No one has called and said they want to play Baylor first.’ But I told him that we do.’ In addition to the Bears, SU also has preseason No. 7 Ohio State on the schedule. It is by far the Orange’s strongest nonconference schedule since Hillsman’s arrival at Syracuse, and it was all designed with the NCAA tournament in mind. The 2009 team’s strength of schedule ranked 109th in the country. ‘Last year’s (nonconference) schedule was what it was,’ Hillsman said. It was Syracuse rolling over the likes of Delaware State and Presbyterian. Other nonconference opponents in the Hillsman era include Maryland Eastern Shore, St. Peter’s and Alabama State. But this year, Hillsman’s schedule has two teams that are virtual locks for the NCAA tournament. He is giving his team a chance to play those types of teams and to see what it is made of. Perhaps getting punched in the mouth by the 6-foot-8 Brittney Griner — maybe even literally — will show his team what it takes to play at the highest level. ‘It will be a good barometer for Hillsman,’ Olson said. ‘It will give him a good measuring stick of where he needs to be.’ All the players on the team hope for a different four-letter acronym to come to mind at the end of the regular season. They are tired of seeing ‘WNIT.’ They want to see ‘NCAA’ next to Syracuse’s name. The talent is here. The schedule is in place. Now it’s time to live up to that potential. ‘We appreciate going to the WNIT,’ Hemingway said. ‘But it’s like when you’re playing in the Big East, you run to get to the real tournament.’ mjcohe02@syr.edulast_img read more
