F* Yeah! Now Fired. Florida folly.


The Seminole High baseball community in Sanford has been ripped apart because Brown was relieved from his position since a celebratory video recently surfaced several days ago. The video, taken on the team bus right after the state championship game in June, shows Brown holding up the Class 9A state championship trophy and giving a profanity-laced speech to his cheering team.

Is the NCAA acting like the RC Church and using an abundance of transfers for predators?

The actual number is likely far higher, as most universities refuse to release records from disciplinary proceedings, even though federal law allows them to do so. proceedings, even though federal law allows them to do so.

Runaway travel costs for big shots at PPS is a lead story

Perspectives matter. Travel is awesome. However, this travel is not for the kids. It is travel for the leadership. It would be great to know that the students of PPS were hitting the road and zooming around town, the region, throughout the WPIAL and PIAA.
Travel and transportation are mega issues. But it is often yellow bus woes, not airline tickets for the honors band, national qualifiers nor science fair competitors.

Sue Murray Swim Pool on lower Northside.
Sheridan Swim Pool in Sheridan (just past Langley)
PCA / Greenway field and swim pool across street from Comcast.
Homewood Swim Pool and Homewood Field, not far from Faison.
West Penn Rec Center Swim Pool in Polish Hill
Ammon Swim Pool on Bedford Ave in Hill District
of course the SDA 2015 sites, especially the swim pools:
Brashear / South Hills Middle School,
Then for later August, how about:
Obama field and pool.
South Side’s Oliver Bath House and Cupples Stadium and Armstrong Park and Market House Rec Center.
Oliver HS swim pool and track.
That infrastructure with WIFI would help in countless ways. Some of these spots above are NOT generally on the highest priority lists, but we’re trying to fortify the facilities that get little use.

#VarsityBlues, a take on the college admissions cheaters and bribes revealed with a federal case hitting the news cycle

Yes. Athletes get a huge advantage when it comes to gaining admissions to colleges and universities.

Sports presents an important pathway to success when in college and throughout life.

Sadly, these facts are too often ignored by some administrators at Pittsburgh Public Schools and hundreds of students every year suffer greatly because of these shortcomings.

The sum of the benefits to the students and families of the district from the Pittsburgh Promise could be overshadowed by a reformed philosophy and some modest attention put to coaching, programs, sports and a holistic athletic activities.

This goes way, way beyond the Stanford Sailing Team and mega rich children of actors.

Hundreds of PPS kids are getting robbed every year because there are some district administrators who don’t give a darn about providing the students with viable opportunities to improve themselves.

But does this recent scandal highlight the fallibility of this fact?

The recent scandal is like a pimple on the face of a kid among the crew of athletes at the PIAA Swimming & Diving Championships.

You can watch day 2 of the AA meet tonight on Pennsylvania Cable Network too!

Hint: When people watch, they don't even see the pimple.

Re-segregation of our schools and who is to blame

Snip of article

Interesting article

Globally, I give it nods. The assessment get agreement, but the reasoning, not so much.

With me, and with what I have witnessed at Pittsburgh Public Schools, the issues is not with the students nor with the parents. Rather, incompetent administrators own the blame.

Best practices, ha. That is where the push-back comes. Some administrators are fine with an embrace of “worst practices.”

Some care. I care.

Personally, I don't want anyone to say I didn't try. Plus, I'm still trying, still poking, still asking for sanity and best practices at the swim pools.
