Army vs. Navy In Philly RoundUp.

Army defeated Navy 14-13 in a thriller in Philadelphia yesterday. Here are some sights and sounds from the game.

As you all know The Kid Chris was down at the Linc Friday and Saturday to provide coverage for CBS. Here are some of his pics/posts from yesterday. I have to say the one directly below is probably my favorite. Snow looks good on The Boy!

Apparently I never left Syracuse ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #ArmyNavy

There were lots of #SpringSport-related Tweets this weekend due to Winter Storm Benji. Here are some of my favorites.

UConn really needs to get a Division I program up and running swiftly.

Here’s a funny story from Cleveland.com about former Ohio State football player Billy Price getting a plaque on the wall of Ohio State’s Woody Hayes Athletic Center in an section that sits over the door between the locker room and the indoor turf field.

“Pat is smiling,” Price said, looking up at the plaques during an interview session on Friday after Ohio State’s first practice of bowl prep for the Cotton Bowl against USC on Dec. 29. “We might have to take the (photo of Price) off the All-American wall too because it looks like a mugshot.”

Earlier this year, one of the plaques over the indoor field was shattered by a lacrosse ball. The football team isn’t the only one that uses the facility. Price doesn’t want his getting smashed. So he’s hoping for a new photo shoot for his national award plaque, and to replace his mean-mug All-American photo that hangs in another part of the football facility.

“All I know is that when lacrosse is in here I don’t want my picture getting dinged by a ball,” he said. “Maybe if I look pleasant, they’ll say, ‘Hey let’s not hit that guy, he’s smiling in that picture.’”

I think lacrosse ball exercise videos are going to have an even bigger 2018 than they did in 2017.

Superman goal!!!

Always good seeing lax boys doing good in the community!

HSE Lacrosse giving back to the community at Good Samaritan this morning! Thanks to all the boys and families that participated!

The Dallas Buisness Journal with a nice article & Q&A with Bill Goren, President of the Dallas Rattlers,

It's like Bill Goren has worked at a large corporation for years, and now he's venturing out on his own as an entrepreneur. "There's no phone system," said Goren, president of DFW's newest sports franchise, the Dallas Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse. "I have to go online and read about cloud-based systems versus, I don't know, the ones that are plugged into the wall."

While he has to figure out a phone system, Goren likes the added responsibility of leading an organization. Stops in Goren's sports career include the Houston Astros, Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Pistons. Most recently, he was chief ticketing officer of the Frisco RoughRiders.

But ever since he began his career in sports, he wanted to be a team president.

"I've met tons of people who said, 'I don't like where I'm at right now. I can't take the stress or the pressure.' I'll take the stress and the pressure," Goren said. "I want to be as impactful as I can. To me, this is a position that's making a large impact. I wanted to be on the hot seat."

Last month, Major League Lacrosse announced its franchise in Rochester, New York was relocating to North Texas. Rattler home games will be played at The Star in Frisco starting with the home opener April 29, 2018.

This Tweet is from November, but with all the snow this weekend, I felt it was still relevant.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

This is my New Jersey: Leonia, NJ officials passed an ordinance that banned drivers who don't live there, with limited exceptions, from driving on some of their roads for nine hours every day.

If you live or work in Leonia, city hall will issue you a bright yellow tag to hang in your rearview mirror. Just about anyone else who drives between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. on about 60 of the township's residential streets could face a $200 fine. And in case you forget, signs will be posted on the streets, hopefully by mid-January, officials said.

"It's an extreme initiative, I'll be the first to admit that. However the traffic that we deal with is completely extreme," Rowe said. But is it legal? Leonia Mayor Judah Zeigler said the ordinance has been "thoroughly" researched and the town has "no doubt the ordinances we passed are legal and would withstand any potential legal challenge."

Santa Con revelers braved Winter Storm Benji and took over the streets of New York yesterday.

Revelers braved the snow brought by Winter Storm Benji for New York City's annual pub crawl as SantaCon kicked off Saturday morning. Thousands took to the street as meteorologists warned that up to four inches of snow could fall in the Big Apple. Cheerful drinkers and Santa clones began their festivities at the Farley Post Office on Eighth Avenue at 10am as flurries fell. While the event ends around 7pm, a weather advisory has been set in place until 1am on Sunday. The heaviest snowfall is expected between noon and 3pm, but wet flakes should be coming down into the evening before tapering off early Sunday morning. ... Last year, police swarmed the city as thousands of people dressed in red, white and green crowded together early Saturday and continued the bash into Sunday morning. Police received numerous complaints about disorderly conduct during the pub crawl in recent years. While no arrests were reported in 2016, '100 summonses were issued to people dressed like Santa Claus for offenses falling into the disorderly conduct category,' according to Patch.com. These offenses include, but are not limited to: 'peeing in public, being overly drunk in public and drinking on the street.' Police say SantaCon goers who are slapped with tickets can expect to appear in court and pay hefty fines.
