"This is no junior college. This is the notorious University of Miami.” -- Marlins starter Dontrelle Willis, after getting knocked around for six runs in 2 1/3 innings by the Canes.

Misc Update

The major league baseball season is one week old and the White Sox are leading the AL Central. Not only that but they took two out of three games from the Indians (the chic pick) and the Twins (the three time defending champs) during opening week. I know it's early, but things are looking promising for the South Siders.

Things haven't been so rosy for the Marlins so far, but they're at .500 and Beckett and Willis (all of the pitching staff really) has looked great.

The Hurricanes swept Virginia Tech in baseball over the weekend. That was something that should have been a given going into the weekend, but given the Canes struggles to date this year, it wasn't. Still, it was good to beat the Hokies in something this year at least. Maybe it's a sign of things to come for football.

Speaking of football, I made it out to the Spring Game on Saturday. I got this impression when I attended practice one day this Spring, but the game solidified it: James Bryant is going to revolutionize the fullback position at the University of Miami. He seems to take joy in hitting people. And he has pretty good hands too. He's going to be fun to watch.

Well, that's all for now. I promise there will still be regular, actual content here. Until that becomes fact though, please consider trying out FishStripes. It's all still written by me (well, Grover too), so it's pretty much exactly what you've been reading before - just a little different now.
