Congressman Massie’s 500-Yard Run That is Driving Congress Crazy
Post Date: 2015-04-23 21:37:47 by Hondo68
Recently, Congressman Thomas Massie came to speak at the University of Cincinnati. He was the keynote speaker for the Young American for Libertys Ohio State conference. Massie gave an eye opening speech on how the House of Representatives works. One of his most revealing stories centered around his 500-yard run that he frequently makes from his office to the House floor. For those that are not aware, Congress passes a lot of bills! In the 112th Congress, there were 561 bills that passed in one year. If we do some basic math, Congress is in session for 132 days and in that time they pass 561 bills, meaning they are passing roughly 4 bills a day. An example of one of these bills is the ...

Post Date: 2015-04-17 10:10:22 by Willie Green
ESPN reporter Britt McHenry issued an apology via social media after video of her berating an impound lot attendant went viral. An ESPN personality made news for the wrong reasons Thursday after an expletive-laden video of her berating a towing company employee went viral. Reporter Britt McHenry, who was suspended for a week by the network, was seen in the accompanying video lashing out at the employee while attempting to retrieve her car from an impound lot in Virginia. McHenry can be seen telling the attendant "I'm in the news sweetheart, I will (expletive) sue this place" and took a shot at the woman's appearance, adding "I'm on television and you're in a ...

Chicago mayor asked that Little League return team's title
Post Date: 2015-02-12 13:00:09 by Murron
Chicago mayor asked that Little League return team's title CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel tried personally to convince the president and CEO of Little League International to rescind the decision to strip the Jackie Robinson West team of its national championship. Little League International confirmed that the mayor made the call Wednesday afternoon to Stephen D. Keener, as first reported in the Chicago Sun-Times. The organization did not detail what Emanuel said but the mayor's office said he told Keener that the decision announced earlier in the day has turned the young players into "perpetrators when they are victims." The mayor's office says ...

Norm Drucker, Referee Who Felled N.B.A. Giants, Dies at 94
Post Date: 2015-02-10 19:08:43 by Golem
Norm Drucker, one of pro basketballs most prominent referees, who notoriously ejected Wilt Chamberlain from a game the only minutes Chamberlain missed in his epic 1961-62 season died on Friday. He was 94. His death was confirmed by his son Jim, a former commissioner of the Arena Football League and the Continental Basketball Association, The Associated Press reported. In the 1952-53 season, when Drucker began refereeing regularly in the N.B.A., there was no 24-second shot clock, the league had only 10 teams, TV exposure was minimal and the officials were paid $40 a game.

NYT: Grad student’s experiments show that weather may be culprit in Patriots’ Deflategate
Post Date: 2015-02-02 08:48:36 by Tooconservative
Reading this, all I can think of is Frank Drebin: Hey, the missing evidence in the Kelner case! My God, he really was innocent. He went to the chair two years ago, Frank. Bradys not going to the chair, though. And this still leaves one obvious question unanswered. In a usually obscure profession that has received extraordinary attention during the controversy, some academic and research physicists now concede that they made a crucial error in their initial calculations, using an equation called the ideal gas law. When that error is corrected, the amount of deflation predicted in moving from room temperature to a 50-degree field is roughly doubled. [Thomas] ...

People keep pulling the fire alarm in the Patriots' hotel in the middle of the night
Post Date: 2015-01-30 09:55:52 by redleghunter
For the second time in three nights, the New England Patriots were awoken in their hotel by a false fire alarm. On Tuesday, the alarm sounded at 1:30 a.m. for approximately 10 minutes. The incident was deemed an anomaly by the hotel according to Jeff Darlington, and was quickly forgotten amid the hustle and bustle of media day. But Thursday morning, the alarm sounded once more. This time coming just before 5 a.m., which is really the worst time. Click for Full Text!

"He was one of the greatest players of all time." Banks played for the Cubs from 1953-1971. The Dallas native began his professional career in the Negro Leagues with the Kansas City Monarchs in 1950.

Source tells Bob Kravitz that Patriots may have deflated footballs in DeflateGate scandal
Post Date: 2015-01-19 10:11:13 by A K A Stone
13 WTHR Indianapolis FOXBORO, Mass. - A source within the NFL tells wthr.com's Bob Kravitz that the league is investigating the possibility that the Patriots deflated footballs in their 45-7 win over the Colts Sunday night. The source told Kravitz that officials took a ball out of play at one point and weighed it. New York Newsday's Bob Glauber tweeted around 7 a.m. Monday that NFL Spokesman Michael Signora confirmed the WTHR exclusive that the NFL is looking into whether footballs were properly inflated during the Colts- Patriots game. A deflated football could potentially be easier to throw and catch or more difficult, depending on how deflated it is. Kravitz was told that if ...

NBPA director: 'Let's stop pretending' Updated: November 13, 2014, 2:06 PM ET By Pablo S. Torre | ESPN The Magazine NEW YORK -- Michele Roberts, the NBA players' union executive director, on Wednesday questioned several of the principles that for decades have governed owner-player relations in the league, objecting to the concept of a salary cap while making clear she'd push for much more than a 50-50 split of basketball-related income. "Why don't we have the owners play half the games?" Roberts said, speaking in her Harlem office to ESPN The Magazine. "There would be no money if not for the players." "Let's call it what it is. ...
Gays should avoid 2022 World Cup in Qatar
Post Date: 2014-11-13 10:34:15 by IbJensen
Sports minister is less than reassuring about how gay fans will be treated at the event. If you are a gay soccer fan and love the World Cup, watching at home on TV would be highly recommended over traveling to Qatar, where gay sex is illegal. Comments by the country's sports minister to the Associated Press did little to calm the sense that gays aren't welcome. Asked how gay people will be welcomed in 2022, Salah bin Ghanem bin Nasser al-Ali replied: "It's exactly like the alcohol question." He said Qatar doesn't want to create "this impression, illusion that we don't care about our tradition and our ethical values ... We are studying all these issues. ...
Buchanan: Hail To The Redskins
Post Date: 2013-10-22 13:54:03 by Brian S
After Sunday mass at Holy Trinity, the parents left their four boys in Georgetown to drive to Griffith Stadium to join 27,000 fans to watch Slingin Sammy Baugh take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Already a legend, Baugh was the greatest football player of his era. Record-setting passer, runner, punter, place kicker, defensive back. Yet, not until the fourth quarter did Sammy throw for a pair of touchdowns to finish off the Eagles 20-14. Something else was happening that Sunday. As the scoreless tie went on, there came a series of public service announcements calling on admirals, generals and officials to leave the stadium and report to their posts. Only when mom and dad ...

Was Aledos 91-0 football win last week a case of bullying? Aledo coach Tim Buchanan, as hes done after every game this season, gathered his assistants last Friday night to go over another Bearcats win. This time, the room had a different feel. We were just sitting there, Buchanan said. Youd have thought we got beat. I looked around and asked, Is there anyone here that feels good? Aledo beat Fort Worth Western Hills 91-0 at home, pushing its season pace to 69.3 points a game and running its undefeated record to 7-0. But the Bearcats were also met again with the challenge of keeping a lopsided matchup from getting out of hand. ...
The dream candidate list for Texas Rangers bench coach
Post Date: 2013-10-15 12:44:33 by redleghunter
The Rangers have two coaching openings with two distinctive needs: One guy needs to be an instructor and another needs to be more of a coordinator. Its easy to understand the duties of a first base coach or an infield coach, two jobs that will fall to the coaching staff hire that replaces Dave Anderson. Those jobs are self-explanatory. At first base, you give baserunners times on pitchers to help with steals and advise on pickoff moves. As the infield instructor, you tutor the infielders on fielding and presumably set defensive shifts. Replacing the bench coach requires a different set of skills. Hes more quality control guy than instructor. Former bench coach Jackie Moore ...
Texas' offseason focus on offense for first time in years
Post Date: 2013-10-03 21:55:39 by redleghunter
ARLINGTON -- The Rangers will enter 2014 expecting to contend for a division title and make another run at the World Series. After four straight seasons of 90-plus wins, there is no reason to feel differently. But after two straight seasons that came to an end after 163 games, the Rangers know they need to get better. More precisely, they need to score more runs. For once, the Rangers go into the offseason feeling good about their pitching -- although the closer situation must be examined -- and concerned about their offense. Specific areas of concern are the outfield and catcher. First base may also be reviewed. The free-agent market offers the usual: some quality players and others who ...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) One down. How many to go? Brewers superstar Ryan Braun was the first victim of Major League Baseballs investigation into the Biogenesis of America clinic, as the league suspended him on Friday for the remainder of the season without pay.

However, the Yankees dont expect Rodriguez to be suspended immediately, sources told the website. ESPN.com is also reporting that, according to sources, Rodriguez could very likely face a suspension similar to Brauns. ...
