I guess I've been away from Buras for too many years and too many miles as I don't recognize any of these young ladies, even by family resemblance. They may be relatively late-in-life daughters, or more likely granddaughters, of high school friends for all that I know.

Thanks for posting that link.
DC area Tiger fans should make the trip out to Bowie to see Gausman while he's with the Baysox. It's a decent minor league park (and has a lot of kids' activities if you have youngsters along.)
Just don't get too excited if he has several good innings to start an...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Kevin G looking strong so far vs Twins - Beltway Bengal on 3/26/13 at 2:35 pm|
I will do that. The O's got a run to get him off the hook, but the Twins have kept adding on. 8-4 Minnesota in the 7th.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Kevin G looking strong so far vs Twins - Beltway Bengal on 3/26/13 at 1:44 pm|
Final line, 3 2/3 innings, 6 hits, 3 R, R ER, 3 k, 0 BB.
| Tiger Rant|| re: Kevin G looking strong so far vs Twins - Beltway Bengal on 3/26/13 at 1:35 pm|
Orioles score 2 to tie it in the top of the 4th.
Gausman gets two outs, gives up two doubles (one off the glove of a diving outfielder and an infield single. Buck hooks him after 3 2/3, 6 hits, 3 runs in and a runner sho is his responsibility. ...

He got the first out on a K, but had to work pretty hard for it. Doesn't seem to be spotting it as well this inning.
Pretty bad rookie mistake by me mentioning "no hits.".

He's pitched two good innings with no hits thus far. One Twin reached on an error when kevin was slow to cover first and then let the throw from the first baseman get by him.
Good command, in, out, and low in the zone so far. ...

A nice write-up, but one of your key points is incorrect. LSU did not install the Veer for the 73 season, but planned to do so for 74. Mac believed it was particularly suited to Miley's skills.
When Miley left for pro baseball, we had to turn to the late Carl Otis Trimble. He was brilliant at ti...

| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Would this recruiting letter be allowed today? - Beltway Bengal on 2/27/13 at 3:47 pm|
Recruiting was different in those days. Here's a link to a story on how Lefty Driesell tried to recruit a number of high profile DC area hoops players (including James Brown) when he arrived at Maryland. Apparently, Lefty thought it was fair game, but the NCAA disagreed (mildly).

I think the concern is that a cup with a lid is a more dangerous projectile (as opposed to the messier results of no lid) if thrown from an upper row or deck. In the ACC, it's generally blamed on Maryland fans throwing stuff at the Duke entourage back in the day....
