U.S. sucks.....as it should. Soccer is not an American sport.

Plenty of PEOPLE didn't need the note...

If it wasnt for all the media hype, soccer would not even be popular. Next, we will be paying forRead More viewing soccer on our already over charged cable bill that places a surcharge on sports casting. Nice isnt it for those who have no interest in sports what so ever!

Replace "Cheer" with Marching Band...talent. difficult routines. practice a lot. Yep. IsRead More Marching Band a sport? Nope. Neither is cheerleading. Nobody is saying cheerleading is not athletic, or whatever. But that doesn't make it a sport...

Who will cheer them on? Will there be cheerleaders for the cheerleaders?
Patricia Mosier June 15, 2014 at 05:57 pm
Cheer leading is most definitely a sport. ..I didn't realize how much it was til my granddaughterRead More started it and how hard it really is.....These kids are incredible and more than just athletes!!!!

I am really disappointed in hearing rumors that St. Anthony's is a school filled with racistRead More students and staff. Nothing could be more disheartening and disturbing than to hear something so derogatory and disgraceful especially in a learning environment like a school. I only hope these rumors are untrue. Racism serves no one well in the world and can only bring misery to those that practice or condone it. It's pure hate! Anyone that raises their children to think races thoughts or spew racist comments or ideals are doing their children a disservice and such parents are irresponsible and unfit to be parents. I'll leave you all with this thought: Love and hate are like echoes, you get back what you send out. Peace and love is the only way.

Glenn..What does your comment have anything to do with this article ?? Good Job Boys! Stay safe andRead More enjoy your college years. It will and should be the best times of your life.
Glenn June 10, 2014 at 05:06 pm
It has to do with the school that these students are attending. It has to do with the bad influenceRead More they may receive while attending such a school. It's too bad you don't see the big picture here or just prefer to be naive or dismissive about something so serious.

Parents ruin sports..
sportsnut July 14, 2014 at 07:39 am
Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.
CowDung July 23, 2014 at 10:20 am
sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

Here are his qualifications... "At OSU, Heilbron led efforts to complete the athleticRead More department’s $157 million fundraising goal as an element of OSU’s broader fundraising initiative.

Someone tell the new owners of Patch - private equity firm Hale - that Patch is only relevant forRead More hyper-local news and information. We will get our sports and weather elsewhere.

I agree with New York Patriot - and how about getting what you post comprehensive - since youRead More mentioned the NHL teams that our local area Olympians are affiliated with, how about mentioning that Ryan Callahan is with the NY Rangers. The daily Bayside-Douglaston Patch emailed newsletter needs to be updated on a daily basis. Right now the I receive the identical email every day. Enough with the meatball soup already!

My first time at Commack Stadium. One can conclude the only "stuff" the Floyd squad wasRead More jacked up on was superior coaching. It was all down hill after the option pass to start the 2nd half, and the 4th down conversions didn't help either. That is big game coaching experience.
