An Intimate Evening With The Intimidators

The atmosphere seems to change once the sun goes down and the race fans get to watch a good show. Dale Earnhardt The same could be said for Intimidators Stadium in Kannapolis, home of the Intimidators. When I pulled into the parking lot, the stadium wasn’t all that impressive. But as the night went on,…

George Mason Universityat 2019 EWL Champs – Round 3

Note: for more photos, check out round 1 and round 2. Going through my photos these last couple of days, I’ve actually learned a lot. I’m still new to this sport, and there’s a lot that I miss at full speed. For example, I thought, why doesn’t a wrestler just get up? I mean, get…

George Mason University at 2019 EWL Champs – Round 2

Note: to see the first round of photos I posted, click here. Last night was the second year in a row that I watched the NCAA championships on tv. What an incredible event. I was following the tournament primarily on Twitter for the first couple of days. I was at a conference and couldn’t very…

George Mason University at 2019 EWL Champs – Round 1

I am woefully behind in my blogging. These next few posts will be relatively short, as I want to get some photos posted. On Saturday, March 9th, I attended my first ever EWL championships, hosted by George Mason. Ironically, it was the last EWL champsionships, as all seven schools recently announced they have accepted membership…

GMU Wrestling – The Avengers

Last night, the George Mason University Patriots defeated the Frankling and Marshall Diplomats 36-10, avenging last years loss at home by a score of 22-17.

Countdown to Spring Training – 11 Days

I’ll take Idioms for $100, Alex. This phrase sums up the timing of the All Things Ed blog post on the number of days until pitchers and catchers report. It’s also a summary of his high school track career. What is “a day late and a dollar short?” Winner! My apologies for being late on…

Countdown to Spring Training – 12 days

Just 12 short days until pitchers and catchers report. I feel sorry for reporters and media who cover baseball. They do a thankless job to bring us fans all the latest, every day, without fail, going to great lengths to cover stories. MLB Network reporter Anthony French filed this disturbing tweet from Lakeland, FL yesterday:…

Countdown to Spring Training – 13 Days

Thirteen days until pitchers and catchers report. Lucky 13! A baker’s dozen of days left. And one degree warmer than it was this morning when I walked out to my car. Spring training cannot come fast enough! Just two players today on this abbreviated post, but they are good ones. Sure, others have graced us…

Countdown to Spring Training – 14 Days

Just two weeks until pitchers and cathers report. A mere 14 days. Unlike yesterday’s post with just one player, today we’ll be looking at a few players. It’s always fun digging into my box of baseball cards. I have each team in there own sealed plastic bag, then arranged by year in each bag. I…
