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…

More photos from GMU – Maryland

I went through my photos and found a few more that are post worthy. If you’d like to see my original post, please visit it here.

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. I looked at my car thermometer, and the following movie scene came to mind: It was 21 degrees. It was very cold in Lancaster. Not only did the team get…

Roller Coaster Week for GMU Wrestling

This past week was an up and down week for George Mason wrestling. On Sunday, they hosted Edinboro. In five previous meetings, the Patriots had never defeated the Fighting Scots. In a back and forth match, GMU pulled out the win, 20-19. Talha Farooq, Julio Alegria, Tejon Anthony, and Kolby Ho all notched wins to…

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…

Countdown to Spring Training – 15 Days

It is with great pride that I announce that Thurman Munson is today’s honoree in the Countdown to Spring Training. Munson proudly wore number 15 for the New York Yankees for 11 seasons, and is honored not only for the statistics that he compiled during his shortened career with the Bronx Bombers, but the great…

Countdown to Spring Training – 16 Days

Two words. That’s all you need. Just two words: Bo knows. Most readers know all about Jackson. For the uninitiated who never saw him play, he was an electrifying player to watch, and he combined power and speed. He was the first player ever to be named an All Star in two professional leagues (NFL,…

Countdown to Spring Training – 17 days

We are down to 17 days before pitchers and catchers report. We are getting close!! A friend of mine the other day asked me why pitchers and catchers report early. I was going to joke and say that pitchers aren’t real athletes. But I didn’t want to offend anyone with that. Seriously, I did wonder…
