There are a few more pictures of the family up on my Flickr site. Some more will be coming after I recover my camera from Pennsylvania. Thanks to Carin for her hospitality last night. We all enjoyed a chance to spend some time in Havertown. Baby Ellie is growing quickly, Cousin Andrew is as energetic as ever and Aunt Carin still has time to re-decorate. Uncle Kevin seems to have weathered both his second season at the helm of the Marple Newtown Tigers and his second wave of fatherhood well. Though most kids at 3 months wear diapers there, bud.
For what it's worth, I am predicting the following:
Billy Joel sings a 2:00 National Anthem (the over), the Colts win the coin toss, take the ball and score first, en route to a 14-3 halftime lead (the under). In the end, the Colts beat up on the Bears, winning 31-10 (cover and the over).
We're just going to sit around, make some pizzas and enjoy the commercials.
In what I predict will be the final win for the Cabrini Cavaliers this season, the Blue Black and White beta back the Marywood Pathetic Pacers 77-65 at the Dixon Center. I also predict this is the last win of Coach Matt Maccoccia's head coaching career at Cabrini. While Maccoccia has been telling everyone in the PAC who will listen that he is going to be named Assistant Athletic Director and have his coaching tenure extended, I have faith that AD Leslie Danehy will correct her error in hiring him and terminate the slide. Even this guy's official bio notes that he has snuck into Cabrini and needs to be shown the door.
South Jersey Sports Scandal
Is anyone watching over charter schools? The LEAP Academy University Charter School scandal is even worse than we thought at first.
These guys recruited players from out of state, allowed them to live in Pennsauken (a potential crime in itself), didn't keep track of where the players lived or whom they lived with, and went to the state title game in only there second year. The New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association banned LEAP from the tournament for 2 years following the discovery of the problems.
Coach Marco Morcos was placed on probation for 2 years and will have to attend compliance classes. Morcos, who played his college ball at Rutgers-Camden, should have know better and I would have shown him the door.
