Re: Makar in NHL

Eleven games into the season and Cale has twelve points (one goal and eleven assists) and a +9.

Now he gets a mini vacation as the Avalanche (7-3-1 for 15 points) will not play at least the next four scheduled games per COVID protocols.

Re: John Chaney passes

Thanks to all for answering my sell-out question. I couldn't recall if the Chaz et al. era brought some full houses. Since they did not allow any spectators into this year's games and they possibly turned away people at the door, did we technically sell-out this season? :twisted: I was watching some...

Re: COVID- 19 VACCINE SHOT

Our county has done a good job of physically administering the vaccines at the local college's athletics center with transportation from the parking lots and minimal wait times for the scheduled appointments. They've done a lousy job of setting up the appointments with a crap-shoot, short daily wind...

Re: John Chaney passes

^ As a side note, Matty V's article mentions that the last Mullins Center sellout was February 17, 2001. Anyone know if that remains a true statement?

Mike's got the birthday game well covered.

As for Chaney, I always appreciated his drive and passion and probably would have really liked him if the hoops gods had sent him to UMass to coach back in the day. RIP coach.

NBCSN shutting down?

https://awfulannouncing.com/nbc/nbc-rep ... -year.html
UMass has appeared several times on the network. NBC has been touting its Peacock venture for some time now and may be looking to add sports to its lineup.

One representative article of one of the ladies' games back in '77 (with bonus coverage of a rout of Harvard by the men). And a nice rant about the state of the athletics facilities in the op-ed.

Lytle looks promising. Nice size at 6'5". Nice high school football stats and GPA and, being a business major, may have been lured by the quality of an Isenberg degree.

Re: COVID- 19 VACCINE SHOT

What does smoking have to do with getting the vaccine? New Jersey has included smokers among the group of high risk citizens (mainly older folks with chronic respiratory conditions). Many people, particularly educators, who are lower on the list to receive the vaccine, are kinda pissed that so many...

Re: COVID- 19 VACCINE SHOT

^ The sooner they make and distribute the vaccine, the sooner I get the shot. I'm a few rungs down the category ladder of distribution.
Unfortunately, I'm not a smoker in New Jersey.

Re: Game 6, 2020-21: at George Washington (1/6)

Was wondering if they would just postpone it for a day. I wondered that too, what with covid postponements messing the schedule already. But safety of staying in D.C. wasn't clear. And GW has to make their way up to Olean for an early Saturday game. Not obvious how reschedule this one, tho It's not...

Very likely that most of you have seen this video of Steph Curry hitting 105 straight 3-pointers. It is rather amazing.
