DCRainmaker Pro Cycling Ride Along

DCRainmaker is my go to resource for information on running watches and other, similar tech. He got to do a ride along with a pro cycling team in their support car. He talks about some of the radio problems and what looks like an Alinco DR-635 makes an appearance.

Congrats to the USWNT!

A very surprising match... I was expecting a very close game, not:

Cord Cutting

ESPN has been one of the main reasons I've not considered cutting the cord and dumping cable TV. Things are starting to get interesting as Dish announces a streaming service that includes ESPN for $20/month:
"But what is Sling TV? For $20 a month — yes, twenty dollars — you get access to a lineup of cable networks that includes TNT, TBS, CNN, Food Network, HGTV, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, the Disney Channel, ESPN, and ESPN2. ESPN is obviously a huge get for Dish and could earn Sling TV plenty of customers all on its own."

Power T

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville is moving away from the UT System logo. The logo incorporates the image of the state.

They will start using the Power T in 2015. This is the same logo that athletics uses today. This seems to be a move to create more of a local, Knoxville identity.

But Coach Butch Jones has been preaching the idea of "One Tennessee" in an effort to lock up recruiting statewide.

Because we don't have much to cheer for with the current state of our football program, we can focus on our glorious past.

Very cool...
"The release went on to state that “[d]espite being engaged in a heated conference game, both teams set aside their battle to show support for a football player, regardless of which uniform he wore. The act displayed both great sportsmanship by the teams gathered as one support unit as well as the impact that Lattimore had on his sport.”"

Big Hit

Wow. You probably had to be watching the game to get the fill effect, because South Carolina had just been robbed by a horrible call.

Not radios. Not politics. Just something different...

You go girl! (Mute suggested because of lame music.)

11 or II?

wesrucker247 RT @DesertVol: @wesrucker247 It's obvious now the preseason voters were using Roman numerals: II instead of 11 for UT.Sun, Mar 04 13:53:20 from TweetDeck

I am running a lot right now. At least for me it is a lot. I'm in better shape than I have been in a long, long time. I have no doubt that I would be slower than a 5 second 40 yard run. I do wonder how close I would have been in high school when I was playing/practicing soccer 5 days/week and was about 40 pounds lighter than I am today.

If I was being paid millions to play the game, I would feel bad for just a second, but then I would get over it.

The Wonderlic Exam

I've frequently heard the Wonderlic Exam mentioned on the radio when talking about potential NFL players. I finally spent a few seconds looking up the test to see what it was about. Here is a sample test, so you can see if you are quarterback material.

The some of the sample questions are not that hard - at least for a geek like me who really likes word problems/logic questions/etc. (Geek alert! My family used to buy puzzle books and quiz each other when I was little.) The trick is there are 50 questions that must be answered in 12 minutes. That means you have to do some guesses based on estimates instead of doing all the math. Here is an example where basic algebra will help you solve the problem, but time could be an issue:
Three individuals form a partnership and agree to divide the profits equally. X invests $9,000, Y invests $7,000, Z invests $4,000. If the profits are $4,800, how much less does X receive than if the profits were divided in proportion to the amount invested?
Given the time constraint, you can try to do the math quickly, estimate (since the answers are multiple choice and you could get close), or skip the question and try to find a faster/easier one.

Bye-bye Dooley?

With Wilcox and Sirmon gone, is Dooley next? Clay Travis thinks so and lists his Top 10 candidates. He is wrong about #3 in his list:

3. Peyton Manning
I would publicly offer the head coaching job to Peyton Manning in the event he doesn't want to take the health risk of returning to the NFL.
In fact, I'd even put Manning at the top of this list if it was my call.
Give him the offense and persuade John Chavis to come back and take over the defense under another Tennessee grad head coach.
Are you telling me that Manning wouldn't have the top quarterbacks in the country every year? Can you imagine what a home visit from Peyton Manning would be like?
This is every Tennessee fan's secret dream, that one day Peyton Manning will return to Knoxville and take back over the Vol football program. His injury may have just accelerated the timetable.
He is wrong about this being a secret dream. We say it loud and proud.

Sports Quote of the Day

Courtesy of Beano on the Tony Basilio show as they discussed a rematch of Bama and LSU:
"If I want to see someone kick for all their points, I'll watch soccer."
