Before we get down to¬†Fizzness this morning, it’s time to pay homage to the blogfather.
D.A. turned 30 yesterday, a major milestone for our main man.
Two weeks ago, D.A. reminisced about his first 29 years in the¬†Fizz-Cast.
From the rest of¬†Team Fizz, you’ve accomplished some major milestones: sports director at WAER, play-by-play for a national championship lacrosse team and even interviewed a couple porn stars in your day.
To the wires, it’s high school graduation season, which in basketball recruiting terms means “time for golf” if you’re a coach (save for Tim Floyd, who can now do that year round.)
However, there is one coaching great willing to go out and sacrifice his handicap in the name of a¬†good cause.
Jim Boeheim made it out to Alliance Bank Stadium for Father’s Day, throwing out the pitch on Prostate Cancer Awareness Day.
Boeheim threw what he called a slider. Others saw a two-seam fastball.The Fizz saw catcher John Poppert get crossed up, but that’s just a chemistry issue between them.
It definitely had some bite to it and decent velocity. And while¬†The Fizzdidn’t see Doug Marrone’s first pitch down in Scranton, we’re sure it would be a duel between the two for top gun spots if there were ever an intramural softball team.
Speaking of Marrone, as¬†The Fizz mentioned on Friday, our friends at Nunesmagician has made his life a bit easier.
The ‘Cuse has more than 120 offers out there.
First come, first serve? Sounds like a good pitch to¬†The Fizz.
