    Yes, but I prefer to listen to Moreland on the radio call and mute the Rice broadcasters.

    One of them, the play at the plate, was a bad call by home blue.  Nonetheless, first live game of the season, and first series of the season for the most part, there is going to be some rust that needs to be knocked off.  As this team progresses, (esp the younger guys,) I expect to see overall cleaner game play. 
    A few things I'll be watching today:
    Ardoin behind the dish Faltine both at the plate and at SS Hodo at the plate-does he make adjustments Stehly at the plate-can he keep up the momentum. Madden on the hill-how will he look in his first start

    joeywa got a reaction from DBut82 in Kobe Bryant killed in helicopter crash in Calabasas   
    Awful news. I learned yesterday that Coach Pierce and his wife were very close to the Altobellis, who lost their lives in this accident as well. John Altobelli’s daughter was playing on the same team as Kobe’s daughter, and they, along with John’s wife, were on the helicopter that went down. Coach put this out earlier today. Keep all of these folks in your thoughts and prayers. Everyone that was on that helicopter left behind family and friends.

    Additionally reported (McComas) is that DJ Petrinsky is expected to be at full strength when the season begins.
