Seamus McFadden: USD’s ageless soccer wonder – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Friday, October 20, 2017

The University of San Diego has had an intercollegiate men’s soccer program for 39 seasons. It has had one head coach. Think about that for a moment. For that, the university can thank the foresight of Tom Burke for hiring Seamus McFadden to start the program in 1979, and the longevity and work ethic and recruiting prowess and tactical acuity and teaching skill and raw competitiveness and nurturing demeanor of…

Orioles draftee Connaughton’s strong NBA opener, promise for more minutes, cloud baseball future – Baltimore Sun (blog)

Friday, October 20, 2017

The Orioles still believe that 2014 fourth-round draft pick Pat Connaughton has more promise throwing fastballs than shooting 3-pointers, but Connaughton’s performance in the Portland Trail Blazers’ regular-season opener Wednesday night proved that his NBA career still has life. Connaughton, 24, opened his third NBA season by scoring a career-high 24 points in Portland’s 124-76 blowout victory over the Phoenix Suns, making nine of 14 shots, including four of seven…

Like many journalists, I’m often on the road, whether for reporting or speaking or both. Unlike many journalists, on … – Tablet Magazine

Friday, October 20, 2017

This past Saturday night, like many observant Jews across the country, I watched the Yankees vanquish the Cleveland Indians in Game Five of the American League Division series. This would be unremarkable except for the fact that the game had been played three days earlier.

Friday, October 20, 2017

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ win over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday night that propelled them into the World Series made us nostalgic, considering that it’s been 29 years since L.A. last played for a title. Dodgers fans, we get your impatience, because 1988 seems ages ago for so many aspects of American life.
