No eastisbest, but I think that you are closer (geographically) to the correct answer than you think.

Again, here's the Ohio-related trivia question:

Who is the only player who won a NCAA basketball championship and pitched in the major leagues in the same calendar year?

I am pretty sure David Thompson teammate, Tim Stoddard did that.

Was this the Monte Towe, Tom Burleson and Mike Burma team?

Excellent guess, Bevo, but incorrect. Tim Stoddard did play on an NCAA championship team (1974), but didn't appear in MLB until 1975. Someone did it in the same calendar year.

Carl Bouldin was a pitcher for the Washington Senators in 1961, after helping win a 1961 NCAA Championship for the University of Cincinnati.

Great job, FootballFan1795. Carl Bouldin, from Norwood (Cincinnati), also had a couple of brothers who played college hoops (Jack at Mississippi State and Dick at UC).

Didn't Indians center fielder Kenny Lofton get close to this achievement?

Bevo,

Yes, you are on the right track with the comparison of Tim Stoddard and Kenny Lofton. Their common denominator is the fact both played in an NCAA Final Four Basketball game and a World Series .

What I find even more amazing is the fact that these two guys are alums of the same high school ! Both are graduates of East Chicago, Indiana HS.

While Stoddard was in high school his team went undefeated and won the Indiana state title. Two of his teammates on that team were Pete Trgovich, who played at UCLA and Junior Bridgeman who played at Louisville. I recall this question was discussed on the Huddle some time ago.

While I commuted from Upper Sandusky to the Ohio Northern Law School, he was living in a dorm and missing his wife, Lorraine, and daughter, Jesse, terribly. He transferred out to Duquense, graduated and was working in some sort of upper-level security capacity. At that time I believe he was living in Brecksville, near Cleveland, and was going to return home that evening.

He was a good bud and was almost as cynical as me. He was an odd character at 33 among all of the recent 23 year old grads. A true romantic underneath a thin, gruff exterior, which I could break through pretty easily. Our disparate lives joined together somehow and the friendship helped get us through until he left to go back to P.A.

One of his last nights there, or it may have been the last night, he "persuaded" me to hit a bar with him. Next thing I know, it's tomorrow, I wake up in a dorm.

I think about him.

Hope the world has treated his wife, daughter and a later - born son as well as possible.

RIP - Bill Moskal - 9/11
Bevo,
Since it's 9/11, I just wanted to also thank you for sharing your story of your dear friend, Bill Moskal.
We should all be so fortunate to have a friend like your buddy Bill -- a true husband and I'm sure fine father as well.
It's good that you would share your remembrances with us of a fine friend who, tragically, was taken well before his time. It says a lot about you, my friend, that you have shared all of this with us here.
I will be sure today to toast to both Mr. Moskal and his friend (and ours) Bevo.

Yes to all of that. The funny thing about Bill, who I thoroughly enjoyed was that the friendship was fleeting (less than a year) but yet I believe we both served a major purpose in each other's lives at that time. This would have been in about 1985. So, we both went on with our lives for the net 16 years; I believe we spoke on the phone once during all of that time. Life is busy. I am sure that at some point we would have reconnected - if just for a couple of cold ones ...or more.

I hope his kids and wife have found some form of grace over all of these years.

On a related note, I have never visited "Ground Zero" but I did go to Shanksville several years ago. I was impressed then; now that the entire memorial is complete I am sure it is even more solemn.
The heroism displayed by all, as that plane came to its rest there is very visceral when you are standing near the crash scene, looking at the sky and in the different directions of the event.

I liked John Waite in the Babys and Bad English, a mixture of Journey guys with him. I'm one of the few who bought Babys and Bad English albums and tapes.

Joey - yes. Lance (Bambi) Rentzel (When All The Laughter Died In Sorrow) - no.

RIP - Jim Houston. A great one.

Everyone on her should find a Letterman Christmas Show when Jay Thomas tells the story about Clayton Moore. Darlene Love is also featured singing her rocking Christmas song, Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). It was the same performers and show every year.

1. Who did the song, God Gave Names to all The Animals?

Our quiz concerns animals in songs! This is Part one. Five correct guesses between the time you see this and Sat. at 10:00 p.m. I believe this one will go fairly fast. Please supply the performer's name if not part of the question.

2. Their leader was Dave and in one song , all they wanted was a hula hoop.

3. Sort of unofficially adopted by The Browns. Rolling Stone called it the third most annoying song of 2007. I would say first most!

4. The Beatles used a sitar on this one and the animal is in parenthesis in the title.

5. Bat out of hell and a nice staple of food.

6. Heart said this was to get back at all of the critics who said not very nice things about Ann and Nancy.

7. Welsh septugenarian still collecting those undergarments - no doubt!

8. On the first part of the journey I was looking at all the life. Not their best but their first.

9. Duran Duran

10. Paulie said this was actually a civil rights song.

11. Have you seen the ____ ____ playing in the mud.

12. Goo, goo g'joob

13. The boys had been working like what animal all night.

14. How can you leave me standing? Alone in a world that's so cold.

15. I remember when rock was young. Me and Susie had so much fun. (Me too!)

16. In the jungle , the mighty jungle... .

17. When you go, you go forever; you string along, you string along.

18. Gonna make you sweat; gonna make you groove.

19. Lyric has the sound "pa" in it 28 times. Also," papa ooma, mow, mow".

20. Weep for yourself my man. You'll never be what's in your heart.

21. Always associated with Rocky (the boxer - not the squirrel).

22. When you commin' home dad? I don't know son but we'll get together then, son. You know we'll have a good time then son.

23. Childhood living is easy to do. The things you wanted I bought them for you.

24. He was lookin' for a place called Lee Ho Fooks.

25. Break up song by Skynard ( you know the boys' teacher).

26. Just ask Alice when she's ten feet tall.

27. Guilty pleasure for me, "Nibblig on bacon, chewing on cheese. Now he's ticklnig her fancy rubbing her toes. (Sex?!)

28. Little white dove was her name.

29. Rick Dees and his cast of iIdiots did this monstrosity.

30. Patti Page song about a a pup.

31. There was green alligators and long-necked geese.

This quiz is in honor of one of our two cats, Squishy. We learned today that Squish has gone blind. She's every bit of 12. She enjoys all people. She is "ok" for having this. New rule around the house, henceforth, be nice to Squishy. Always.

Good luck and go Bucks. My Upper team has lost the last two weekends by a combined score of 85-6 (with the 6 coming tonight on the last play of the game via the hail Mary from the 50.)

Here we go; looks like it's over half done!

Leading off and playing short OWK comes in with:

2. The great David Seville and his chipmonks. You'll hear this song every year at the holidays.

15. Crocodile Rock. When this came out around '72 I loved it but I thought it sounded so old. Now, tht's 47 years ago.

16. The Lion Sleeps Tonight. I was at my friend John's house around 62-63 on a very wintery day. his folks had a console stereo. They had two albums -Sherry and The Lion sleeps Tonight. Played them both all afternoon.

26. Grace Slick was one of those older rock stars and is at or beyond 80 today. Still the band could rock out Frisco, I beleive; and White Rabbit was a good druggey song. I was much more partial to Somebody To Love. I bieve OWK has a current photo of Grace hanging at his home.

28. Running Bear - thought this might linger for awhile if OWK or JB were out for the day. Johnny Preston.



Mr. Slippery - It is very "slippery" and foggy here Mr. Slippery.

6. Barracuda by Heart. It goes without saying that Nancy Wilson was on my original "Hot Babes" list from the get go. And, what a guitar player! Partial to the flame throwing music of Crazy On You.

8. Horse With No Name. Have always liked America. Part of it was geography, age and circumstance. They have a handful of other really good songs. This one made me sad.

9. Hungry Like A Wolf. Duran Duran. My son mentioned Tears for Fears last night. Some bands I just was unaware of. The ones mentioned would e two.

21. Sure, Eye Of The Tiger. Stalone is not a great actor but he created a great character. Original idea came to him watching The Bayone Bleeder (Chuck Wepner) go the distance with Ali at the Richfield Coliseum in the early to mid 70's.

22. Cat's In The Cradle. Had a teacher friend who taught at Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio. They analyzed the song one year. Probably why he was there two years and ended up at the public school in Upper for the next 33!


Footballfan -

3. The freakin' Baja Men with Who let The Dogs Out. I love a good Ahab and The Arab song as much as any other xenophobe but this one hurt!

7. Tom Jones with What's New cat. I beleie that son was out ifn '65. He's still out there. Just don't trip over the Depends and walkers stacked up in the aisles.

14. When doves cry by the chemical formula known as Prince. Genius.

18. Black Dog. Zeppelin being Zep. Let it rip!!

20. I saw them play one night with Dylan on tv. I knew they were something special. Mumford and Son with Little Lion Man.


80 greyhound -

13. A Hard Day's Night. Ringo had all of the "Yogisms" in the band. This - along with Eight days A Week were just two.

23. By The Stones, of course. I could used this song myself a few times.Wild Horses.

29. Rick Dees and ... Disco Duck says enough.


Monclova - They will always be the lads to me. Just watched Ed Sullivan again lat niht. He says "And these youngsters fro Liverpool are going to twice entertain you tonight, right now and later in the show. Ladies and Gentlemen... . And theeh world jolted and took off.

11. Little Piggies - not well known - good catch!

12. I just love how this entire son sounds. I Am The Walrus.

30. We just did Patti Page and it is How Much Is That Doggie In The Wiindow? You know - the one with the waggily tail.

Great start as 21 questions have been answered correctly. We will give some of the late risers a chance to jump in.

22. Cat's In The Cradle. Had a teacher friend who taught at Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio. They analyzed the song one year. Probably why he was there two years and ended up at the public school in Upper for the next 33!
"Horse with No Name" has the opposite effect on me. I find the song to be very upbeat, nevermind the subject matter.

I have a small thing for soft rock and prog rock bands probably because of what my dad listened to when I was younger, so I've always liked many of Tears for Fears' songs. I have their greatest hits CD. Never got much into Duran Duran though.

"Cat's in the Cradle" is a pretty easy song to figure out: Boy wants to be like his dad, dad never has time for the boy as he grows up, the boy becomes adult and has no time for the dad, so the boy ironically succeeds at becoming like his dad was.

I'd say your teacher friend got the better end of the deal moving on to Upper. Public school pay, benefits, and pension is far better than most of what the parochial system offers.


Incidentally, my HS alma mater's gridiron team moved to 2-2 on Thurs. night with a 55-7 pasting of their archrivals. It was the most lopsided game in the history of the series. After beating us and making the playoffs just 2 years ago, the archrivals are in the midst of a complete rebuild and are struggling mightily right now. The archrivals are 2-12 in their last 14 games. 11 of the 12 losses have been running clocks.

It could be worse though. In the SE corner of our county, the once-proud and successful Minerva Lions have lost 34 straight games. Their current seniors have never seen the varsity win a game during their HS careers! Their last best chance to break the streak before the end of the season is in 2 weeks. I thought they would have a chance to break it last night but got running clocked instead. Tough times for the Minerva HS football players...

Good job in beating Aquinas. It looks like your Crusaders might have a real exciting season. As for Minerva, well, that's a sad situation.

ROCK ON!

Aquinas football has fallen off a cliff after the 2016 season. They actually lead the Central series 5-4 this decade, but 4 of the last 5 games have been running clock wins for the Crusaders.

We'll see how the rest of this season goes. There's plenty of optimism in the Crusader ranks, but a lot of good football still needs to be played in order to make the playoffs and make a run back to the state title game. I'm not sure how many fans learned their lesson after last year's 3-7 season that the playoffs are not an entitlement. The remaining schedule doesn't offer too many games where the team can just show up and win.

Your Irish got a big win last night over Cardinal Mooney with their big rivalry game against Hoban coming up next weekend. I wish the Irish all the luck in the world for that game. They're probably gonna need it.

Think you, I, and everyone else picked Indian Valley over Minerva in the T-County Week 3 Pick-Em. Glad to see you were one of the sensible ones who picked Dover over Akron East this week, too!

Think we’re both going to go 12-3 this week, but looks like Power house (another of the Dover faithful) will go 13-2. Bummer ... I even had 70 as my tie breaker!

Your game against New Phila on Friday should be a good one. Phila’s struggling lately, while you guys are coming off a rivalry win. Even with Harbins at stake, still just feels unnatural to root for Phila.

I'll just be a few miles up the road, at the Brickhouse, watching Dover beat Tallmadge!

Good luck this Friday, and hope everyone stays healthy!
