    OT: YPSOS Young People Sing Old Songs

    One of my favorites is to find young people performing old songs on You Tube. These categories are arbitrary, but for me, anyone under 25 singing songs from before 1965 fills the bill. That's about 40 years before they were born, and 60 years before they performed the song. I know some people...

    OT: National One Hit Wonder Day

    Sept. 25 is National One-Hit Wonder Day! A day where we can celebrate those songs that topped the charts but then their performers faded away from the music scene. What are some of your favorite one-hit wonders? I'm going with an oldie:

    OT: HBO Special

    If you like sports docs, HBO has a terrific one Tuesday at 9 p.m. to go along with March Madness. “Women of Troy” traces the rise of USC’s women’s basketball team and how the Trojans’ success — and its star players, especially Cheryl Miller — paved the way for women’s basketball in the United...

    OT: Transgender Athletes, A new Video

    Thoughts? Personally, the fairest solution is to create a new category. Men compete against men, Women compete against women, and Transgender compete against transgender only.

    Dubious Records

    Not sure if dubious is the correct word, but there are a few odd records that may be set this season. I thought I was looking at Deja Vu all over again, where, like the last two seasons, UConn would go undefeated the entire season, playing basically six players, only to lose the semi final...

    OT: Advertising Slogans

    The secret to a winning advertising campaign often lies with a great slogan. It is these catchphrases and straplines that your customers remember.

    Two biggest reasons Miss. St. Lost

    Trivia question

    On the Notre Dame broadcast, they had the graphic that Muffett had 12 victories over Geno, and that was the second most victories by any coach. So, I am going to guess that Pat Summitt has the most. ( Please correct me if I am wrong.) What is Summitt's lifetime record against Geno? And what is...

    OT: Girl wins boys golf tournament but can't be awarded first place

    Girl wins boys golf tournament but can't be awarded first place Golf is one of those unique sports where strength or size makes little difference. She should be the official winner. 75 and beat the boys. I bet a trophy will not matter because her future looks bright from my seat. Great job Emily.

    Discussion question for the day

    Saw this quote from Sun Coach Curt Miller: “The unintended consequence of injuries is that people get to play through mistakes, get to play extended minutes, and you don’t have any short hook with people,” Miller said. So, this is the down side of having a "long" bench. I can think of several...

    Question about last night's game

    With 56 seconds left in the first quarter last night, William was charged with a foul. Jimbo posted this question: "The loose-ball foul against William a couple possessions ago was MSU's FIFTH team foul. Nurse should have been at the line, right? What am I missing?" I'm wondering the same thing.

    Box Score

    BOX SCORE When you look at the box score, you almost wonder how UConn kept the game so close. Very many un-UConn like stats: 1. Only 11 assists on 20 made baskets. Good for most teams, but not "normal" for UConn. 2. MS out rebounded UConn 37-31, leading to 3. MS took more shots, 67-46. 4...

    OT: UConn History

    I attended UConn from 1965 - 1969. I don't remember seeing any coeds in the field house. So, I am wondering about the history of UConn Women's sport teams. Were there any? I'm thinking there had to be the prevailing women's sports of the day, golf, tennis, swimming, gymnastics. Are there any old...

    WNBA Predictions

    Anyone care to predict what effect, if any, playing on the Olympic teams, will have on the WNBA? Some possibilities: 1. LA Sparks will be rested and ready to prove themselves. 2. Diana and Brittney will continue their sparking play, and Phoenix will become a contender. So, will the Olympians...

    Who is the second best team in the world?

    When the Olympic Team was announced, I speculated that USA could field a silver metal team with the players not selected. Posters scoffed. Well, so far, the only team to give our Olympic team a contest was the Select team, who only lost by four points. Here's some more speculation. I wonder why...

    WNBA Question on Playoffs

    Could someone please explain to me: If the WNBA playoffs are based on final record, regardless of Conference, then why bother having two Conferences? What is the difference between two six team conferences, and one 12 team conference? Does each team play the other 11 teams an equal amount of times?
