Hey Coach you should stick to coaching and stop clowning around until you take home the trophy.

Indeed. Watching a soccer game is much more important than keeping a job.

I agree that having the Olympics here would be a disaster -- lots of inconvenience and costs to theRead More public and mainly only the hotel and restaurant business would benefit. Not one cent of tax money should go toward bringing the Olympics here.

I'm intrigued bit cautious. If something happens to remake the area around RFK it could be aRead More substantial legacy. The region already has a lot of the other event infrastructure and facilities so the games would be dispersed.

Robert May 23, 2014 at 04:51 am
What's wrong with you people? Sentencing guidelines for first time domestic violence offendersRead More rarely encompass jail time, especially when the victim sustained no serious injuries. On top of that, the actual assult wasn't captured on video, and therefore could be difficult case to present to a jury.
Crime Solver May 23, 2014 at 09:47 pm
@ Robert, While I do think the punishment fits for first time offender with such a promising future,Read More I just wanted to make a note how the victim clearly is not using her brain by taking his hand in marriage right after this incident occurred as the timing sounds too convienant to be anything other than to prevent justice being served. Hopefully they overcome this and live great future together but when it happens again I hope she don't cry wolf or vice versa.

I went to Delaware Park to watch (and bet) on the Preakness. Maryland should be ashamed of itselfRead More for the outdated and run down conditions of Pimlico and Laurel Park. The facilities at Delaware Park are modern, accommodative and clean. As to why Pimlico and Laurel Park got rid of the infield tote board, it was a big mistake. The tote board is a traditional part of a track's environment. Instead, both Pimlico and Laurel Park only has a giant screen in the infield for relay information to the bettors. The screen's graphics has a bluish tint and the numbers are hard to read. Delaware Park's infield screen is clear, picture perfect and the numbers are very easy to read. And it also has an infield tote board. I could on and on about the embarrassing conditions of Pimlico and Laurel Park.

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 07:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 10:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.
The University of Maryland joins the Big Ten Conference in July.
amark May 4, 2014 at 07:52 am
This move was made out of greed by an athletic director and univ president who had no loyalty to theRead More acc and were looking to dig out of a financial hole that the athletic dept was in. MD in the big 10 is a joke especially geographically. Edsall and Turdgeon are dragging down the football and basketball programs further. If anything MD should have moved to a smaller conference like the CAA where they can be competitive.
Bill Samuel May 5, 2014 at 01:23 pm
Well it's good they spend less on athletics, but IMHO universities should get out of the business ofRead More professional (falsely called amateur) athletics entirely. Universities should be for academics. It's disgusting how coaches get salaries far more than faculty members or even university presidents, and allowed to do things to make money on the side which would be properly regarded as scandal in any other department.

What does Mike retiring have a thing to do with the young up and comers having a chance ? They haveRead More a chance to swim against him and beat him if they train hard enough !!!!!!

I dont think the OLYMPICS is a waste of time. It is a great source of inspiration and accomplishmentRead More for many young, old and even handicapped people.
