The TEN: 2/15/2017



(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”) 

1. “Those fans, that left…I say SHAME on you. SHAME on you. You’re not a loyal Kansas fan. These kids deserve better. I said it then, and I’ll say it now. Played their hearts out. A lot of people, you saw, packed their bags, going home.“- ESPN announcer Dick Vitale Monday night on the Kansas fans leaving with less than three minutes left and Kansas trailing West Virginia by 14 points. Kansas rallied to win in overtime.

    No one is going to read the comments at MVS and confuse this place for a think tank, but these conversations about Arroyo and Gabrielino are really showing an impressive level of stupidity. It makes the comments at YouTube seem like the New York Review of Books.

    Hahaha.. still mad your team wasn’t even good enough to make it to CIF I see..don’t be mad bro because if winning a CIF title is your only argument for a successful season then arroyo with all the wins in their history don’t mean crap because before this years run that’s all they’ve done in football over the years Is win league even though they double every school enrollment so I guess they aren’t the powerhouse they are claimed to be

    @ fundraiser, REALLY league rings?
    I believe if you win CIF it is worth it , but league common! get a patch on their jackets or sweaters and call it good.
    Especially Mission Valley League where the best player is a 5’6″ from another team

    Gabrielino’s 71-53 loss to Brentwood this evening merely underscores this team’s commitment to winning league and ONLY league titles. They are the league title specialists, and that’s why they need your help in purchasing league championship rings. Won’t you please visit www. and make a generous pledge?

    I love these stories about young men using their football ability to go abroad and live someplace new. Very cool! Do it while you can – you’ll never regret it.

    Look those fans are just retransplanted Dodger fans. They probably arrived there half way through the 1st half and had to beat the heavy traffic in KC. You know arrive by the 3rd inning, drink a couple of $16 beers, go to the bathroom, then leave by the end of the top of the eighth inning. They probably DVR’d it! LMAO!!
