  1. "Cartersville QB, Clemson Commit Trevor Lawrence Once Again the No. 1 Recruit in the Nation" by Marcel Louis-Jacques on independentmail.com "Clemson Football: Trevor Lawrence's Name Mentioned with All-Time Greats" by Andrew Boardwine on rubbingtherock.com In addition to Hunter Johnson (who will be a sophomore next year) and Zerrick Cooper (also a (redshirt) sophomore), Trevor Lawrence (a true freshman) addles this situation enormously next year: "Clemson Football: Kelly Bryant Ranked No. 1 Heisman Candidate for 2018" by Andrew Boardwine on rubbingtherock.com I'm not sure I can envision Kelly Bryant (a senior) winning the Heisman - I just don't think he's complete. And I've never felt sorrier for Hunter Johnson, who is a terrific quarterback who deserves - needs - to be in a better situation. Anyway, I guess you'll be hearing the name "Trevor Lawrence" in the coming years. In addition to his Wikipedia entry (above), here he is playing at Cartersville HS:
  2. Going to the 1st day of the US Open Quals in an hour or so. I just looked at the drawer sheet. At 11am, on adjacent courts, which can both be viewed by standing in between, are matches featuring Felix A-A (court 4) & Denis Shapovalov (court 5). I know where I'll be heading.
  3. Q: Who is San Diego State's all-time Assists leader? A: Tony Gwynn
  4. In 1999, Nunavut was carved out of the Northwest Territories, and is roughly the size of Mexico. In case anyone is planning any trips, the capital city is Iqaluit. This thing is massive:
  5. I'd always planned on giving Marrisa Mowry her privacy, but she's now mentioned on several websites on the internet. As the next-best thing, I'm instead going to focus on her athletic career at Anderson University in Anderson, SC. I first saw Marissa on Instagram two years ago as a junior at Cartersville HS - she and Trevor Lawrence were about the cutest couple I'd ever seen, and I figured it was only a matter of time until the internet found them, and their all-American, high-school sweetheart relationship. But this is about Marissa, not Trevor, and she's a fine athlete - she didn't get too many minutes as a freshman, but she played well in high school, and Anderson can look for her to continue controlling the midfield in the near future. Best of luck to you, Ms. Mowry, and kindest regards from all of us up here in Washington, DC.
  6. We've been discussing South Park, so I thought I'd bring up Family Guy. I think this show is pure genius and Seth MacFarlane is one of the funniest people around. A couple of random favorites: For my fellow Star Wars geeks, be sure to check out the parodies (Blue Harvest, etc.) McFarlane has done. They're amazing. He had permission from George Lucas to copy the hell out of it and at times the animation matches the actual film frame for frame.
  7. Happy Super Bowl Sunday, folks, I think this is one of the most interesting, and certainly one of the most "quick-thinking" defensive plays I've ever seen. Here's the setup: The Yankees' Orlando Hernandez ("El Duque") is pitching to the Mets' Rey Ordóñez. Ordóñez hits a very routine grounder back to the pitcher's mound, but the ball gets stuck inside of Hernandez's mitt - he can't pull it out - and Hernandez has about 1-2 seconds to decide what to do. Does he keep trying to pull the ball out, or ... ? Given the high-risk nature of what Hernandez did, I don't know if it was the correct thing to do, but once he made his decision (and I emphasize, he had perhaps one second to make it), both he and the first baseman, Tino Martinez, displayed extraordinary moments of athleticism, calm-under-pressure, and hand-eye coordination. Jun 6, 1999 - "Sports of the Times; A Play Maybe Nobody Had Ever Seen Before" by Dave Anderson on nytimes.com
  8. Alan Rickman's death had me reminiscing about Galaxy Quest, a silly movie but still a favorite. For one thing, although there are plenty of one-liners, much of the humor is visual, or in the editing. It's a movie that needs to be watched. As in, when you're watching it, really pay attention to the visuals, like the way scenes are cut, or the expressions on peoples' faces, or their gestures. Especially Alan Rickman's face. And, although it satirizes Star Trek and those shows' die-hard fans, it does so in a gentle, good natured way. There's nothing crass or ugly about it. The plot, briefly: many years after the TV Show Galaxy Quest is off the air, the washed-up actors are making a living by appearing at conventions and public openings. Until some aliens show up. These aliens have seen the TV broadcasts but mistook them for "historical documents". They get the actors on board a real-live working replica of the show's spaceship and... wackiness ensues. The cast: Tim Allen as Jason Nesmith/Commander Peter Quincy Taggart [Kirk/Picard/Janeway/Sisko] Alan Rickman as Alexander Dane/Dr. Lazarus [Mr. Spock/Jadzia Dax/Tuvok/T'Pol] Sigourney Weaver as Gwen DeMarco/Lt. Tawny Madison [Uhura] Tony Shalhoub as Fred Kwan/Tech Sargent Chen [Scotty/LaForge/O'Brien] Sam Rockwell as Guy Fleegman/un-named [a redshirt] Daryl Mitchell as Tommy Webber/Lt. Laredo [Wesley Crusher] and many more. If you're a SF fan and haven't seen Galaxy Quest, you need to. And if you're an Alan Rickman fan, be sure to watch his face and gestures. Dane is a great character, a classically-trained actor who can't get over being typecast as an alien, and Rickman does exceptional work portraying him.
  9. Does anyone remember this commercial: for Boxcar Willie's album? IMHO he's one of the most amazing musicians since Slim Whitman. Weird fact: There's a Boxcar Willie Park near L'Enfant Plaza. Huh?
  10. It pains me to say that the great German author, Günter Grass, 1999 Nobel Prize winner for Literature and author of "The Tin Drum," has passed away at age 87. "Renowned German Author Günter Grass Dies, Age 87" on dw.de (Deutsche Welle) "Günter Grass, Nobel-Winning German Novelist, Dies Age 87" on theguardian.com "Günter Grass, Who Confronted Germany's Past As Well As His Own, Dies At 87" on npr.org "Günter Grass, Nobel Prize Winner, Dies Age 87" on telegraph.co.uk "Günter Grass, German Novelist and Social Critic, Dies at 87" on nytimes.com Last year, we lost Gabriel Garcia Marquez; this year, we lost Günter Grass. Like Marquez's "100 Years of Solitude," Grass's "The TIn Drum" is one of the most important works of contemporary literature I've ever read. A giant has left us today. Please share your thoughts and feelings about this great German author - this has hit me pretty hard, and I'd love to see some discussion of his life's work. "The Tin Drum" (1959) is one of those literary works which you'll most likely find more rewarding to read before seeing the film (1979), although the film is excellent, having won a Palme D'Or and an Academy Award.
  11. When it comes to classical music involving pieces highlighting the Violin, a favorite performer of mine is Gil Shaham. One of the pieces I have listened to many times and seen live with him playing (I think twice) is Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor (#64). Here are each of the movements-- 1. Allegro 2. Andante 3. Allegro molto vivace A treat.
