The TEN: 4/25/2018

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

1. The Boston Celtics beat the Milwaukee Bucks 92-87 to take a 3-2 lead in the first round Eastern Conference Playoff series.

4. Free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera (13 year veteran) signs a minor league deal with the Cleveland Indians.

5. Former South East coach Glen Gates has been named the new head coach at Pomona.

6. “MVS needs to highlight comments in RED concerning any program playing in D11 or worse. That way, serious fans can spend their valuable time more efficiently on this site. I’m not saying these comments should be banned, because Lord knows they have comic value, but some kind of gatekeeping is in order.” – MVS Commenter “New Rule”.

7. On this date in 2009 Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford is the first overall pick in the NFL draft by the Detroit Lions.

8. Happy Birthday to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver who turns 56 today.

10. “I’m a huge fan of the game. It’s beyond a fringe benefit of obviously getting to work at the league office. I watch a ton of games in person, on television, on all forms of new media I follow the league. And so it’s just beyond my wildest imaginations to me to now be the commissioner of the NBA.”-  Adam Silver.

    The pride of Norwalk High, Rashaad Penny, has been selected in the twenty-seventh pick by the Seattle Seahawks. I’m sure Jesse Ceniceros would like to join me in congratulating this outstanding player.

    SH couldn’t have hit the nail on the head better with his analysis of football’s place in America. Americans like action, and no baseball games provides more than a total of five minutes worth of it per game. The opposite of action is DEATH, and that unsavory state is what comes to mind when I accidentally flip past a baseball game with my remote.

    I am sorry but football is still the topic 12 months of the year and we have a great baseball team. Football is such an emotional sport that a lot of people become attached and are fully invested in it. We will be in a new league next year and we are excited about the new challenge. CO is always good, DR brings in talent, WC should bounce back, LA has good young talent but it sound like the new coaching staff will underachieve like they did at Duarte and CWSH, and Walnut is Walnut.
    The NFL draft is tonight and we can watch the Browns mess up the life of a new QB. The Browns and Mayfield are made for each other (1-31). Your record is what you are.

    What happened to all the baseball talk. Once upon a time there were threads on Bonita, South Hills, Bishop Amat, San Dimas etc. They all had players going D1 or signing pro. Have these teams quit playing and are there no stars anymore? Even girls softball was a hot topic. Not anymore.
