  1. The Washington Nationals' webpage Season opener, 9-7 in 10 innings. Amazingly, the score after regulation was 5-5 - that is a tense tenth inning. A classic Earl Weaver game: "pitching, defense, and 3-run homers." Look: 1) The Nats struck out *18* batters today, and gave up only 3 walks. 2) Error-free the entire game. 3) Anthony Rendon hit a 3-run homer. Strasburg fanned 10, and his BAA (batting average against) was .238. It's remarkable that his ERA after this game is 6.00. We've got to watch giving up the long ball. Box Score on cnn.com
  2. Heh. You're assuming I have a clue as to what backchecking is (don't worry, I can search that one). Are you betraying your hatred of the Caps by ranking Ovechkin 10-20 as opposed to 5-10? Or even 1-10? I honestly don't know the answer to this; only that people seem to think he is the second coming of ... Lemieux? (Give me credit for knowing you're from Western Pennsylvania and not saying Gretzky.)
  3. This graphic showing ESPN's Top 10 High School Senior basketball rankings is pretty scary, if you don't pull for Duke:
  4. Forgive my exuberance, but I went to Clemson for both undergraduate and graduate school, and after being there during the glorious 1981-1982 National Championship season, it has been 34 years of non-stop heartache. They've been good, and at times excellent, but they've never come close to repeating that one, unforgettable accomplishment. --- "Clemson Tigers Banned from Social Media during Season" on si.com Supposedly, "to keep players' focus on football as opposed to the outside world." I read it more as, "to keep any stars from getting trashed at 2 AM and tweeting something stupid." Can you imagine completely giving up social media for four months in this day and age when you're in college? This is the 21st-century version of saltpeter.
  5. Wake Forest is an underrated football team in this 2017 season, with a record of 4-1, having lost only to Florida State last weekend, 26-19. One thing that most people don't realize is that, after five games, they *lead the nation* in "Tackles for Loss" with 50 - that's 10 per game.
  6. I'd been casually fascinated by this band in the early 90s. They came and went in my music rotation over the years and then resurfaced shortly before (and after) the death of my oldest brother (my musical Obi Wan). As much as these gents can really rock it, they also can really sometimes just hit you in the gut. "Nutshell" is one of those songs for me: And studio ... because you need to hear it twice:
  7. I don't know how long this video is going to be up, but it's of tremendous quality (both the video, and the tennis). Agassi played an unbelievable second set.
  8. Her live album from the Monterey jazz fest is also excellent. Truly a great artist.
  9. FYI, Flutie is part Lebanese....while having absolutely nothing to do with this topic, he has likely enjoyed his fair share of kibbeh nayyeh in his lifetime. Although, as unbreakable records go, it is unlikely another part-Lebanese quarterback will win a Heisman....
  10. I loved the movie The Aristocrats, and laughed myself almost into insensibility during much of it. I obviously found it funnier than almost anyone else in the theatre where I saw it, and felt a little weird laughing at things no one else seemed to think were funny. But Sarah Silverman's segment really sent me over the edge, as much as Gilbert Gottfried's did, and some of the others were very funny too. I think it's worth seeing the movie in its entirety.
  11. We made it from the ground-up corn in the old back pasture. Pinched a scent of night jasmine billowing off the fence, popped it right in. That frog song wanting nothing but echo? We used that. Stirred it widely. Noticed the clouds while stirring. Called upon our ancient great aunts and their long slow eyes of summer. Dropped in their names. Added a mint leaf now and then to hearten the broth. Added a note of cheer and worry. Orange butterfly between the claps of thunder? Perfect. And once we had it, had smelled and tasted the fragrant syrup, placing the pan on a back burner for keeping, the sorrow lifted in small ways. We boiled down the lies in another pan till they disappeared. We washed that pan. -- Naomi Shihab Nye "Truth Serum" from You and Yours (2005)

    There's something recursive about this. April 23, 2005 snapshot of donrockwell.com - 8 days old.
  13. About a month ago, I was browsing the bookstore at Busboys & Poets, and came across "'De Colored Section," a book of poems by Walter Irving Ray, Jr. published in 2005. I've talked with Mr. Ray and he has graciously allowed me to reprint one of the poems here: his beautiful little jewel, "Ben's Chili Bowl." "'De Colored Section" was published in 2005 by Esoray Publishing Company, Washington, DC 20012, and is copyrighted by Mr. Ray, whose impressive biography is here.
