Philadelphia Eagles preseason nooz

Featured

I’m going to leave this up as a feature story for the rest of the NFL preseason, which is two more weeks, and I’m going to continue updating it with Eagle news.  For your convenience, the news will be dated with the most recent on top.


8/25/19- The Eagles are traveling to New Jersey to play the Jets for their final preseason game. 


8/23/19- Not that it really counts, but the Ravens beat the Eagles last night 26-15.  The Eagles are now 1-2 this preseason.  

McCown looked really good.  Statistically, he completed 17 passes out of 24 attempts.  He threw two touchdowns and had zero interceptions.  That’s not bad at all.  

Both teams headed into the locker room with 11:43 on the clock in the fourth quarter because of severe weather concerns.  The game was eventually called off, and that’s where it ended.


8/22/19- Tonight, preseason, Eagles vs. Ravens.  I don’t think Carson Wentz will see any game time. 


8/20/19– Right now, the eagles have five quarterbacks on the roster, and one just came out of retirement.  I guess you could say the Eagles “quarterback situation” is somewhat of an emergency after losing Nate Sudfeld (broken bone on his left wrist) and Cody Kessler (concussion) in the first two preseason games.

Josh McCown, who is now 40, just came out of retirement for his 17th season.  He signed a one-year deal that could be worth up to $5 million. 

The other two QB’s on roster are Carson Wentz and Clayton Thorson.


8/19/19– Preseason for the Philadelphia Eagles began this year on August 8th.  They opened with a home lose against the Tennessee Titans 27-10.  The following week the Eagles traveled to Jacksonville, and evened their record with a 24-10 win over the Jaguars.

They have two preseason games left, and that will wrap up the month of August.  They’re at home hosting the Ravens on Thursday August 22, and then they’ll travel to Jersey to play the Jets.

Official regular season play begins Sunday, September 8th.  The Eagles will play home against the Washington Redskins. 

MLB Tonight

Tonight at 7:05 the Cubs will be traveling to Pittsburgh to play the Pirates.  The Pirates are 50-70 and in last place in the National League Central, 13.5 games back.  The Cubs are 64-57 and in a first place tie with the Cardinales.

Also at 7:05 the Padres are traveling to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies.  In the National League East the Phillies are in third place, and 8.0 games back.  Their record is 63-58.  The Padres are 56-64, in fourth place, and 23.5 games out of first place in the National League West.

Alright Everyone, Enjoy Tonight’s Games

Go Pennsylvania!

WONDERLOVE

Sometimes I wonder, and I’m just speaking in general here for a moment, but I’m wondering how long it really takes for a person to get over someone they had a relationship with and who they really truly loved.  Is it possible for two people to have a relationship filled with so much love, it plants the seeds for that same love to blossom years and years after the breakup?  There has to be a way to find new love, and make new memories, even when all the signs point to the past.  Maybe that’s just it.  Maybe real love replaces real love, and all signs will point to the past until you’ve found a new love that conquers all.

I don’t know, if we were talking I’d say I’m just thinking out loud, which means I’m probably not making much sense.


FIREWORKS AND FOOTBALL

The 4th of July came and went.  Shit, it went so fast I didn’t even see the fireworks.  That’s how this whole year is going.  You blink, and it’s gone.  There’s like a little more than a week left in this month.   August is fast approaching.  The dog 🐶 days of summer as they call it.  August always reminds me of football season.  High school and college.  That’s when double sessions started.  I laugh when people complain about the heat during the summer.  Try putting on all that football equipment, and practicing twice a day in the depths of August.

I don’t know if I ever mentioned it, but I played four years of football at William Paterson University in Wayne, New Jersey.  Much love to WIlly P.  I had some great times there.  I really hope the team has a better season this year.  I was just on the WIlliam Paterson Website a few days ago, and I saw they were winless in 2018?  We must change that this year.  Good luck Pioneers.


PIGS, PIRATES, AND PHILLIES

Right now the Phillies are 52-48.  They’re in second place, 6.5 games behind Washington in the National League East.  The Pirates are 46-53.  Currently, they’re in fourth place, 7.5 games behind the Cubs in the National League Central.  There’s just about 62 games left in the MLB regular season.

In much more local baseball news, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs minor league baseball team is 47-52.  They play their home games right here in Allentown, Pennsylvania at Coca Cola Park.  They’re about to beat Toledo’s ass tonight, the game is in the 9th.  The IronPigs are in fifth place in the International League North, and 9 games out of first.  The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders are in first place.


All right everyone.  Have a good night, and a wonderful day tomorrow.  Make everyday count, and be the best person you can possibly be.

💕💪💪😛👍😎

Phillies, Nationals Tonight

Tonight at 7:00, the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals will play in Washington.  The Phillies are 39-32, and second in the National League East.

The Nationals are 33-38, and currently in fourth place in the NL East.  For the Phillies, it’s going to be Jake Arrieta on the mound.  Arrieta has a 6-5 record as a starter with a 4.31 ERA.  The Nationals are going to feature Jake Corbin.  Corbin is 5-5, and his ERA is 4.11.

Enjoy the game, and have a wonderful evening!

Checking In – Catching You Up..

5/25/2019


What’s up everyone how are you?  I hope you are all doing well, getting out there and living your lives, and trying to be the best person you can be.  For real.

I was just watching a preview of the movie, Noah.  It was the one that came out in 2014 with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.  The part of the movie being shown was Russell Crowe’s narration of the creation of Earth as written in Genesis, and it was really really interesting.

In my mind I was just imagining God as this non-physical entity, flying through space looking for a home, at the same time Earth was forming.  At the end of the 7-day creation period, everything was good, and in perfect harmony.  It showed Adam and Eve as light bodies or light beings, pure, and innocent.  Of course the snake comes along, Adam eats the apple, sin is committed, and murder ensues, but this whole scenario got me thinking.

In my opinion, and I do say my opinion because people will jump all over me saying this; I think human origin has been, and perhaps, will always be a thorn in the side of humanity.  Where did we come from?

Finding an answer to that question is almost impossible, but after watching that scene in Noah I wondered about the idea of Adam and Eve as light bodies.  What if they were?  What if, today, one man and one woman – soulmates, found each other and connected, and stole the light of the world, but this time, they didn’t sin.  That would take us all the way back to creation, and if they didn’t sin, well, that could be the end of humanity.

It’s something to think about.


 

What’s everyone doing for Memorial Day?  This year Memorial Day is Monday, May 27th.

For me Memorial Day hasn’t quite been the same since leaving New Jersey.  In New Jersey, Memorial Day is one of those special weekends where everyone who lives in the Northern portion of the state, invades the middle and southern coastal areas for beach access.

It’s really funny now that I’m looking back.  The people who live in these areas year-around really hated us Northerners for over-populating their cities and towns, partying, and creating all types of traffic issues, but hey, their economies thrived because of it.

LOL  😆😛🚗🚐🚲🛴🚗🚗🚗🚗🚗

Personally, I didn’t make any special plans this year.  I’ll be around.  Hopefully, soon, I can start finding some new Pennsylvania traditions.


 

B-Ball 🏀🏀👍

It has been a while since we discussed basketball, and that’s probably because the 76ers were eliminated from the championship race.  There is a game tonight though.  Tonight at 8:30 is game 6 for the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors.  The Raptor lead the series 3-2.  The winner of the series will play the Golden State Warriors for the NBA Championship.


Dating Sites?  💑

There are so so many dating sites on the internet, and I swore that I would never use an internet dating site to meet someone, but that was when I was twenty,  Now, in my thirties, my opinion towards dating sites has changed, and I did join one, but I still haven’t met anyone.

Has anyone had any luck?  I’m starting to wonder if these sites are even real.  Are the people on them real? Are the profiles real?  If you joined a dating site and met someone, please write in and let me know what site you’re using, and how much if anything did you pay to become a member.  I’m definitely interested.

Key Win For 76ers

ball-basketball-basketball-court-1752757

Today was game four for the Philadelphia 76ers and the Brooklyn Nets, and it’s starting to look like the 76ers are going to survive and advance from the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

With today’s 112-108 win, the 76ers are up now 3 games to 1 on the Nets.  Philly was outscored by 9 points during the first period and Brooklyn was in the lead 33-24.  The Nets continued to play well and at half time, they were winning the game 63-57.

The 76ers were down, but definitely not out of it.  They hung around and kept the game close.  The Nets were winning 91-85 heading into the fourth, but the Spirit of 76 came alive in Philadelphia.  The 76ers scored 27 points in the final period and eventually won the game 112-108.

Nets Center, Joel Embiid, lead his team in points (31) and rebounds (16).  Forward, Tobias Harris, scored 24 points and had 8 rebounds.  Game 5 is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23, at 8:00 p.m.

What’s going on?

     We’re now three days into the 2019 Spring season, and it’s still cold out there.  That’s okay though, warmer temperatures are just around the corner.

     March always felt like the longest month to me, but this year it’s flying.  There’s eight days left.  I can’t believe it.  New Year’s resolutions are in full effect over here, and I hope you’re all sticking with yours as well.


     I don’t know if we have followers on the site here who enjoy NCAA College Wrestling, but the final round is scheduled for this evening at 7:00 PM.  I’m almost positive it will be televised on ESPN for those who are interested and can’t make the ride out to Pittsburgh.

HWT – Derek White Oklahoma State vs. Anthony Cassar Penn State

125 – Jack Mueller, Virginia vs. Spencer Lee, Iowa

133 – Daton Fix, Oklahoma State vs. Nick Suriano, Rutgers

141 – Yianni Diakomihalis, Cornell vs. Joey McKenna, Ohio State

149 – Anthony Ashnault, Rutgers vs. Micah Jordan, Ohio State

157- Jason Nolf, Penn State vs. Tyler Berger, Nebraska

165 – Mekhi Lewis, Virgina Tech vs. Vincenzo Joseph, Penn State

174 – Mark Hall, Penn State vs. Zahid Valencia, Arizona State

184 – Maxwell Dean, Cornell vs. Drew Foster Northern Iowa

197 – Bo Nickal, Penn State vs. Kollin Moore, Ohio State

     Penn State won their eighth National Championship team Title this season.  That’s eight in a row for Penn State, who’s wrestling team could be the most dominate team in all of sports.  I mean talk about a time to be a wrestling fan.  What Penn State is doing right now as a team is absolutely amazing, not to mention they have five wrestlers in the finals tonight who could leave with National Titles, and for some, it won’t be their first.  

     At 133 I’m rooting for Nick Suriano because he his from New Jersey, and he wrestles for Rutgers, but Daton Fix from Oklahoma is exciting as shit to watch.  It’s going to be a good one.

Bo Nickal from Penn State should win at 197, he kind of owns Ohio State’s Kollin Moore.


The Philadelphia 76ers play on the road tonight at 7:30 against the Hawks.  The 76ers are still rolling and are now in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference.  They’re 7-3 in their last ten games.  They’re 6.5 games out of first place, and 3.0 games behind the second place Raptors.


Have A Good Night

 

 

 

Commentary; News Now

3/9/2019


I don’t know if you read the Morning Call, but every now and again I’ll pick it up and thumb through it to see what’s happening locally.

There was an interesting article written by Carl Strikwerda on the News 13 page, Town Square, Your View.

“We must commit ourselves to making our colleges or universities a home for those young people without families,” wrote Strikwerda.

He goes on to say, “These students have great courage.  We in higher education need to be equally courageous in helping the next generation thrive.”

I agree with Carl, and I can relate to his article despite graduating William Paterson University in 2003.  The truth is that if you don’t intern or start  focusing on what you want to do professionally before graduating, then you might find yourself mixed up and lost in the shuffle of real life.

If you attend college right after high school, you’ll probably be 22, 23, or 24 after graduating.  At that age we’re young adults and most are responsible for paying back large sums of loan money.

My parents moved out of state in September 2003, and I graduated in August of the same year so I didn’t have a home to come home to.  I had to move in with a friend.

The title of Carl’s article is How schools can help “half-homeless” students, and this is the situation he was talking about.  Sometimes undergraduate students and definitely graduate students are looking for a little more out of their universities because the reality is they are half-homeless, in the real world, and looking for guidance.

Carl Strikwerda was sounding off a most needed rise from trusted adult professionals who’ve already made that successful transition this younger generation is now going through.


Today is the first round of the Big Ten Conference wrestling tournament.   The tournament will be held a Minnesota University, but Pennsylvania’s eyes will be on a the NIttany Lion squad.  The finals of course, will be tomorrow, Sunday, March 10th.

The 76ers play the Pacers tomorrow at 3:30.  A win will give them 3rd place leverage in a two-way tie with Indiana in the Eastern Conference.

Go Pennsylvania Sports!!!!


Have A Good Day
