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…

A Lean, Mean, Green, Pinning Machine

While the weather was snowy and cold outside, the action was hot inside the RAC on the campus of George Mason University this past Sunday as the Patriots hosted The Citadel. Mason won three of the matches by fall, and also had one major decision, and sent The Citadel packing with a 31-18 win to…

Diving into the deep end with George Mason Wrestling

When I was about seven or eight, I took swim lessons. My kids, who were district swimming champions and state qualifiers, find this very hard to believe because when I was training for a triathlon with my daughter years ago, we agreed that I basically swim like a set of keys….. Anyway, after I took…

George Mason Wrestling Doesn’t Disappoint!

I ventured over to George Mason University this weekend to catch a dual meet between the Patriots and the visiting Buffalo Bulls. One could look at the final score (26-7 Bulls) and be disappointed with the GMU team. But I disagree. These young men fought hard in every match, all the way to the end….

Coach Beasley came to GMU after serving as associate head coach under Pat Papolizio at North Carolina State. Beasley was also the recruiting coordinator. Just prior to today’s dual meet against the University of Buffalo I had a…

George Mason Wrestling: Being #UnCommon!

It was this time last year that I attended my first ever amateur wrestling event. I visited George Mason University to watch their Green vs Gold wrestle offs. I was a total newbie who knew nothing about the sport. I followed GMU during the season and saw them wrestle a couple of times, and saw…

A Wet But Peaceful Night In Altoona

Editor’s note: unlike my other blog posts, this is not my typical stadium review of PNG Field in Altoona. For those who want a more in depth article on PNG Field and the Altoona Curve, please click here to read about my visit in 2015. “The day is cold, and dark, and dreary; It rains,…

Pulaski Yankees: Small Town Park, Big League Fun!

Dateline: August 4, 2018 Location: Pulaski, VA Pulaski: a town in Pulaski County, Virginia, United States. The population was 9,086 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Pulaski County I’ve lived in Northern Virginia since 1987. Until I started my blog, if you had asked me if I had heard of Pulaski, if…

An Unexpected Night of Fun in Greeneville, TN

“The truth isn’t the truth.” – Rudy Giuliani I admit, I laughed at this when I first heard it. Then I tweeted this the other night: So I guess I have successfully put myself in a perjury trap! This past week, my siblings and I, along with my aunt, had to venture to Morristown, TN…
