  2. Nevada fans Eric Musselman.... can Nevada keep him?

    do you ever drive up/down N.Virginia street and see all the new stuff going in? Every single year is a new project (or more). Next is going to be a, (needed), parking garage somewhere on the southern side. I think Johnson's' priorities are in order. Just my 2 cents as a local, not an alum.
  3. World War 1. 100 years ago right now

    thanks. I read a few history blogs. its simple to copy and paste. You can see that the people 100 years ago are just like us today, and we make the same kinds of mistakes and mis-judgements that they did. Only the names, technologies, and places change. and Russia is a mess... >

  8. NHL Trade Rumors

    EDMONTON -- The Bruins have been searching for a left shot defenseman and they got one today from the New York Rangers. No, it wasn't Ryan McDonagh, the Blueshirts' best blueliner who has been rumored to be on the block. It is Nick Holden, a 30-year-old veteran who should provide some depth on the left side

    a Glass house. “Since 2008 more people have died in Clark County from an opioid overdose than motor vehicle accidents or firearms,” said Kathryn Barker, an epidemiologist with the Southern Nevada Health District. “In Clark County about 85 percent of the fatal overdoses are from prescription painkillers.” https://www.reviewjournal.com/news/politics-and-government/clark-county/clark-county-may-sue-to-recover-opioid-epidemic-expenses/

    100 years ago, the Red Sox held spring training in Arkansas. with Babe Ruth-- --------------------------------- As the Boston ballplayers climbed the Arkansas hills in early 1918, the Great War raged on in Europe. On January 30, Martin reported in the Globe that Red Sox outfielder Jimmy Walsh enlisted as a machinist’s mate in the Navy. In March, Germany launched the Spring Offensive, their last-gasp thrust against the Western Front. By the time April came around, there were 19 players on the Sox roster. The Red Sox were not immune from the war effort as restrictions were put in place that required draft-age men to enlist or find a job in a war-related industry. The baseball season was shortened to September, and the MLB owners had to finagle their way into an extension for the players competing in the World Series. The national anthem was played for the first time at the World Series that year as the Red Sox beat the Cubs, and the war drew to a close in November. Ruth, who was 23 years old in 1918, spent the winter living in a cabin in a pine tree grove splitting firewood, fishing, and shooting targets with his rifle. In early March, he hopped on a train in Boston with catcher Dan Howley, writers, cartoonists, and photographers. The Boston Globe’s Edward Martin reported from spring training, detailing the trip south and the happenings in Hot Springs. The train picked up a few soldiers on leave from Camp Devens and Ruth passed around his cigars on the way to Albany. Team owner Harry Frazee and more players climbed aboard in Albany, but Sox prospect Henry Libel did not. https://www.boston.com/sports/boston-red-sox/2018/02/20/what-red-sox-spring-training-was-like-100-years-ago

    this is the Kaisers dentists book in e-form. He wrote it after the war was over. (Davis) is really easy anecdotal reading, you can just flip to any page and start reading. Kaiser Wilhelm spoke great English, (his mother was British), and he talked to his Ohio dentist in English most of the time. Apparently American dentists were considered the best in the world at the time, the US was way ahead of Europe in technology. The Kaiser sounds a little bit like Trump. https://archive.org/stream/kaiserasiknowhim00davi#page/116/mode/2up
