Teddy Bear Tea!

A lot is hinging on the outcome of the 25th Congressional District race between incumbent Dan Maffei (D) and Republican challenger Ann Marie Buerkle, who currently has the lead -- and it will be weeks before the contest officially ends. With the extended fight comes unforseen financial burden, apparently -- both Maffei and Buerkle began post-Election Day fundraising efforts last week. But for what? The election is over. In an e-mail Nov. 4, Maffei’s camp urged supporters to donate toward the $25,000 goal it had set for itself, but didn’t say exactly what that money would go towards. “We are in the process of assembling our team to help ensure that every vote is counted, but this is a costly process,” the e-mail said. “We need your help to ensure Republicans can’t steal this election.” In contrast, Buerkle’s campaign asked for donations without announcing a set goal. Like Maffei, however, Buerkle was vague about the specific costs the additional funds would offset. Whichever candidate wins, their immediate efforts to raise more money doesn’t reflect well on their cost-cutting agendas. --

Hawkins, Greens stay on the ballot

Meanwhile, Syracuse may not have given New York it’s next Governor, but voters in the



2010 mid-terms managed to give the Greens enough votes to keep them on the ballot for the next four years. Greens called this year the “best showing ever for statewide Green Party candidates.” Green gubernatorial candidate Howie Hawkins may have not won office this year, but Greens claimed a victory even before midnight on Election Night. --

IDEAS seeks arts-related input

IDEAS Collaborative, a partnership between local arts and culture groups and the people who fund them, recently launched a survey to gather community input on arts, culture and entertainment activities. The survey was developed from the input residents offered at nine IDEAS community conversations and forums held in September. The group aims to find out why people take part in arts, culture, heritage and entertainment activities -- and why they don’t -- and how to overcome those obstacles and increase participation. To fill out a survey online, visit Hard copies are available at libraries, Rosamond Gifford Zoo and by e-mailing or calling 474-2489. Surveys must be submitted by Nov. 15; submit a completed survey for a chance to win a $50, $150 or $250 Wegmans gift card. Need a survey in Spanish?

Syracuse Crunch turn sport into spectacle By Russ Tarby Fast-paced and hard-hitting, ice hockey is one of the world’s great spectator sports. The game itself, however, is only one part of the total entertainment experience at every Syracuse Crunch home game. Besides the slap shots, sleight-of-hand saves, blazing skating and body-checking, there is the new video scoreboard focusing on fans during Boogie Cam. There’s Big Sexy pulling off his T-shirt and shaking it in the faces of the opposing team. There’s the Mirabito Ice Girls dancing the “Cotton-Eyed Joe.” There’s Al the Ice Gorilla delivering pizza certificates to lucky fans. “Game nights get a bit hectic around the office,” admits Mike Folsom, the Crunch’s senior director of sales who has overseen game operations for more than seven seasons. “We’ll roll up T-shirts, prepare other giveaway items, load graphics and videos into the scoreboard, upload new music to the DJ’s computer and set up our promotion elements in our central meeting area at ice level. Between public relations getting their elements ready and marketing getting theirs, it’s easy for chaos to break out from time to time.” No doubt. But as Folsom readily acknowledges, the fans themselves really create the exciting arena ambiance. “The atmosphere we create is 100 percent thanks to the fans,” he said. “When we’re down, they pick us up. When we’re up, they keep us up.” Folsom credits his staff for picking up on the crowd’s many moods: “A packed house might want to get on their feet and do the

Enthusiastic fans let the Crunch know when they’re pleased.

The Crunch face off against the Hershey Bears at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 13, at downtown’s War Memorial. Mary Delgado, the season six winner of ABC-TV’s The Bachelor, will appear at Saturday’s game which is also Supercuts Magnetic Schedule Giveaway Night. Ticket prices range between $13 and $22; 473-4444; wave. A younger crowd might want some more video clips. An older crowd might be looking for a different mix of music. Either way we try to listen to what the fans want and make the experience and atmosphere their own to enjoy.” And there are at least three off-ice elements generated by fans themselves and fully supported by Folsom and the Crunch. The Hanson brothers, for instance. The Hanson brothers During the third period of every home game, after an opposing player is sent to the penalty box, Crunch music coordinator Tony Valerino spins the “Bonanza” TV theme, and one of three season ticket-holders dressed as the Hanson brothers runs from behind the bench to the box and slams into the glass. Ever since the Crunch was founded in 1994, the faux Hansons – Frank Szymanoski, his brother Ray and Ray’s wife, Brenda – have been paying tribute to “Slap Shot,” the 1977 movie partially filmed at our own Onondaga County War Memorial. Wearing replica Charleston Chiefs uniforms, the Szymanoskis ably portray the bellicose bespectacled fictional forwards from the film. With their blue-and-yellow game sweaters, black wigs and horn-rimmed glasses, the “Hansons” embody hockey’s wackier side, and the Crunch experience is all the richer for their offbeat effort.

The Mirabito Ice Girls, above, add a little gorgeous glam to the Syracuse Crunch spectacle.

‘More cowbell!’ And then there are the cowbells. Carloads of cowbells. More than three dozen cowbell ringers sit in Section 7, and greet every Crunch goal with a clanging cacophony.

There are three timeouts in each of hockey’s three 20-minute periods. Folsom’s game operations staff fills some of those breaks by airing a famous sketch from “Saturday Night Live” Will Ferrell plays a rock’n’roll percussionist at a recording session while Christopher Walken, portrays real-life producer Bruce Dickinson. The clip culminates in Walken’s immortal line, “Guess what? I got a fever, and the only prescription... is more cowbell!” “The fans, they like that,” says Karen Simbari, Crunch director of events and sponsorship services. Section 7 sure likes it. The cowbells often ring louder for Walken than they do for a difficult kick save by our goalie. Kiss Cam offshoots The Crunch experience runs the gamut from raucous to warm and fuzzy. For years, Crunch cameramen have scoped the War Memorial stands seeking cuddly couples to feature on Kiss Cam. One of Kiss Cam’s standing jokes is to finish the sequence by focusing on a couple of opposing players who never kiss, of course, but never fail to draw a guffaw. Now the video shticks have multiplied – Smile Cam, Hug Cam, Fan Cam and Boogie Cam, on which fans dance like maniacs. Big Sexy Talk about dancing maniacs, you can’t beat Mark Hayes. A corpulent account executive in the team’s front office, Hayes debuted as Big Sexy during the otherwise lackluster 2006-07 season. Usually starting in his suit, white shirt and tie, Big Sexy tosses off his jacket as he grooves to modern R&B tunes before he pulls off his shirt and tie and rips his T-shirt from his abundant body. He’s not appearing at every home game anymore, but when he does Big Sexy often

starts his show with the Ice Girls in Section 13 before rampaging down to the opponents’ bench to press his big belly against the plexiglass. Sometimes Hayes shakes it so hard he breaks it. On March 22, 2008, while wearing heavy firefighter’s gear in honor of Firefighters’ Night, Big Sexy dislocated a shoulder while doing ‘the worm,’ one of his routine dance maneuvers. He was back at it a few weeks later, much to his doctor’s dismay. The boys are back home on Saturday. Go Crunch!

On-ice excitement, too

This season the Syracuse Crunch became the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, and the California franchise has blessed the local club with a locker-room-ful of big-boned rookies ready to demonstrate their on-ice skills for coach Mark Holick. Here are three talented newcomers on which to keep an eye: Nicolas Deschamps, #16 Hot-shot left winger from suburban Montreal. Last season, playing for two different teams in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Deschamps scored 39 goals and passed for 57 assists. In 12 games here, he already has six goals and three assists. Timo Peilmeier, #30 Left-handed Germanborn goalie who has quickly emerged as the team’s No. 1 netminder. After eight games, his goals-against average is just 2.49. Luca Sbisa, #28

Defenseman who knows how to score. At 6-foot-2 and 204 pounds, Sbisa has no trouble pushing opponents off the puck, but he also has a flair for skating the puck into the offensive zone. After eight games, he has notched two goals and seven assists.

Downtown After Dark 7 marimbas, heavenly rhythms The Syracuse-based Kambuyu Marimba Ensemble will perform a tune titled “Jabberwocky� at the Westcott Community Center this Saturday evening. Composed by the ensemble’s mentor, Stan Sitnik, the number cleverly syncopates the group’s seven marimbas while simultaneously paying tribute to author Lewis Carroll and a legendary Syracuse University music venue.

Admission is an attractively low $5 for the ensemble’s show at 8 p.m. Saturday Nov. 13, at the Westcott Center, 826 Euclid Ave., on the city’s East Side; 478-8634. Scintillating rhythms The Kambuyu Marimba Ensemble makes music unlike any other combo in Central New York. From the deep, natural resonating tones of the bass and baritone marimbas, to



the scintillating rhythms and melodic interplay of russtarby@ the sopranos and tenors, the group entertains with an unusual musical experience sure to delight any audience. Kambuyu’s percussive music is happy and infectious.   T he e ns e mbl e i nclu d e s s e ve n marimbas: three sopranos, two tenors, one baritone and one bass. In most songs, one


of the sopranos plays the melody while the other instruments provide intricate counterrhythms and chords. They often accompany their hand-built marimbas with hosho gourd rattles and drums.  Typically taught through the oral tradition, Kambuyu’s music is influenced by traditional Shona mbira (thumb piano) melodies and by modern compositions, such as “Jabberwocky,� written in the traditional spirit. This music was brought to the United States during the 1960s by the Kwanongoma Continues on next page.

Viewpoints Our view

We are failing our young people

In the last two weeks, eight Syracuse teenagers and young adults have been shot. You can take a minute to absorb that number -- but anything other than zero is unacceptable. If one of our children is killed by another, then we have failed as a community. Generally, The Eagle focuses on Syracuse’s progress and highlights those people and groups putting their efforts into making this community better. But we can’t ignore that the violence in this city is a direct argument against any progress we’ve promoted in recent months. The number of energy-conscious facilities we boast, the arts and culture venues -- none of that matters if we continue to be a community that stands a mute witness while its young people are killed. When our kids are injured and die at the hands of others it is just as bad as if we had pulled the trigger. Mary Nelson is right: it’s time to stop talking and start doing. She challenges all of us: “We need to come together as a community and find some answers.” Nelson will host an open community meeting from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday Nov. 13 at the Mary Nelson Youth Center, 2849 S. Salina St. The meeting is open to all; Nelson asks that you come ready to ask questions, brainstorm solutions and respect other opinions. She has invited representatives from the school district, the city and the police department, and wants to focus especially on what happens when a student is suspended from school. She wonders why they can’t be suspended to a community program, instead of being released onto the street to find trouble? Why does the school wait all day to call a parent when a student doesn’t show up for school in the morning? She wonders. And, like all of us, she wants answers. She wants to know why we seem to be so content living in a community that doesn’t protect it’s children. And while she knows, and we know, that Saturday’s meeting won’t reveal all of the answers we want, at least it’s a start. See you there. - Ami Olson


Ball of Confusion

After the initial shock of coming face to face with an American Stafford Terrier (large pit bull) I had to reconsider my previously held notions of what to do if your dog is attacked. It’s even more complicated when there’s injury to both animal and human. I didn’t want to file a police report, which is the first thing you’re supposed to do in case of an attack. I thought this would be a simple procedure and that Animal Control would investigate and the dog owner would no longer be able to allow his dog to attack other animals. What you’ll find is that this is the jurisdiction of Animal Control who will then write the ticket for the pet whether it’s behavior or not being licensed. (Insert collective yawn here.) Since I knew the property owner, the father of the tenant, I called and arranged for a meeting. So there we were, discussing the situation where this vicious dog attacked my dog and in the process injured me. When we sat down with the tenant he explained how the dogs were there for protection since he was burglarized


Ken Jackson Urban


several years ago. Hmmmm? So, a dog that attacks other dogs will protect you from a burglary? I think it’s people who commit these crimes, not a dog wearing

a disguise. It only takes a swing from a hammer or a hard object to the head to render your “watch dog” useless and dead. If you purchased an alarm system it would be much cheaper and cleaner than keeping a full-sized American Stafford. The property owner was cooperative but his son, the dog owner, didn’t get it. Dogs that live around other dogs are best when they’re socialized. Dogs that aren’t socialized don’t play well with others dogs, in some cases they’re conditioned to attack strange dogs as training for money-making fights. Over the last 21 years I’ve advised my readers to go to the proper authorities and to my surprise when I try to practice what I preach I find out why people are so disgusted with government. When asked about what we can do about this “attack” dog, a person from the City Clerk’s office (where dogs are

licensed) snipped, “it’s not our job to get them in here to get licensed!” Another chimed in, “looks like a civil matter to me.” I moved on to the City of Syracuse Police Department to report the incident: “Sir, you will have to wait and an officer will be here to fill out the police report.” Twenty minutes later another officer asked, “are you waiting for something?” I’m waiting for the officer to appear and take a police report regarding a dog attack incident. I was then told that it would be a while, and why didn’t I file the report when it happened? I’m then scolded for bad timing. At this point, over an hour had lapsed and I didn’t want to get a parking ticket so I excused myself and left. As I was leaving, the officer stated that I should go back to the address of the incident, call the Syracuse Police Department and see if anyone would come out to help me. I was then told, “we have to take someone off the street to deal with your problem, you think we have people in here just waiting to file police reports? “No, sir,” I replied as I left the building. As I turned on my XM player in my car the Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion” was playing. I thought, how appropriate.

Your voice Valesky thanks voters

To the editor: I want to express my gratitude to the voters in the 49th Senate District for re-electing me to be their State Senator. Thank you to the hundreds of volunteers who gave their time to help the campaign, doing everything from stuffing envelopes to making phone calls and knocking on doors. Your support is invaluable. I believe that with a new Governor, Andrew Cuomo, we have a chance to really change things for the better, and I look forward to working closely with him. Central New York is a great place to live and work because of the people who live here. I will continue to work hard on your behalf, and to proudly represent this district.

Garden Banish furry space invaders this winter


How to keep critters out of the home Attic exhaust fan Many attics are equipped with an exhaust fan to vent hot air from under the roof. Animals can scurry through the opening of the exhaust pipe and into the attic itself. Attics are very attractive to animals because they tend to be warm and infrequently visited -- a perfect place for a nest. Again, use a wire mesh hardware cloth securely fastened over the venting can keep animals out. Roof and soffits Over time weather and water can soften wood and create places where animals can gnaw or dig through. Routinely inspect the roof and wood areas of the home to check for weak areas that may need repair. Pay close attention to areas where gables or dormers meet

the roof line. Drainage pipes Homeowners with a sump pump or other drainage system may have pipes extending from a basement to the outdoors. Burrowing animals may find the exposed end of the pipe and enter the home through the drain. Wire mesh coverings secured to the end of the pipe will allow water to drain out, but not let an animal in.

of the home, they’re certainly sharing close proximity with homeowners and can be a nuisance. Dig a trench at least 10 to 12 inches deep and place wire mesh inside. Attach the mesh to the bottom of the fence or deck. This may help keep some burrowing animals out.

Window wells Basement window wells offer areas where animals can spend time unnoticed gnawing away at loose trim or caulking to sneak past. A plastic covering or commercial grate can usually do the trick of securing the window well area. Fences and decking Animals can dig under fences and take up roost in the yard, or they may live under decks. While not exactly inside

squirrels may decide to hibernate winter away in your home, but there are some measures you can make to keep them out.

ildlife, such as mice, squirrels, chipmunks, bats, and birds may see your home as a quiet, safe and dry retreat anytime during the year. However, when the cooler weather arrives, and animals are looking for burrows and nests to weather out the chill, your home may be especially attractive. An autumn project to undertake should involve keeping unwanted wildlife out of the house. A home presents a number of entry points for animals. Having an animal nest or live in your home can be unsanitary and potentially dangerous -- especially if you startle an animal or if they block the release of smoke or exhaust from the house. Examining potential entrances and closing them up is key to keeping animals out. Chimney A professionally installed chimney cap or a mesh hardware cloth can keep animals out of the chimney -- a common entry place. Animals can transmit diseases through their droppings and block the release of smoke in a chimney, which are two potential hazards. A securely fitting cap or mesh covering can keep animals outdoors.

Timber Banks – Upstate New York’s premier golf experience Constructed to Nicklaus Designs highest standards, Timber Banks’ four sets of tees offer players of every level a challenging and enjoyable round of golf. Come and enjoy a world class experience on this magnificently scenic and beautifully appointed layout. Playing through and across woodlands, meadows and wetlands, Timber Banks is a natural and tranquil setting; winding through ancient forests and emerging neighborhoods, you’ll see golf in a very new way. The Front Nine at Timber Banks This straight forward opening hole measures 390 yards from the BEAR Tees, watch out for the tree guarding the right side of the fairway off the tee. A short iron approach to a unprotected green, at least by Nicklaus Design standards, leaves you a chance to get your round off on the right foot. A well placed drive between the bunkers gives you the best opportunity to go for the green in 2.

The green is well protected and one of the most severely sloped on the course. Hole number 2 is a true risk reward hole- reachable but dangerous. This dog-leg right par 4 is one of the shortest par 4’s we have and also one of the tightest. A tee shot placed left center of the fairway past the corner gives you a great look at this ‘mild’ green by Nicklaus’ standards. This is the longest of the par 3’s measuring 226 yards from the Bear Tees, it requires a long iron or hybrid, between the water on the left and the bunkers on the right. The green is one of the deepest on the course- knowing the pin location is essential for selecting the proper club. The number one handicap hole requires a well placed big tee shot right- center of the fairway that gives you the best angle for your long iron approach. Avoid the green- side bunkers or a bogey or worse is likely. A slight dog-leg left, your tee shot must stay

left of the tree that protects the right side of the fairway. The lone bunker steals the headlines. A mid to short iron approach must carry to the correct portion of the green, otherwise break out your short game and try to get up and down from one of the many collection areas that surround one of the largest putting surfaces on the course. A par 5, 3-shot hole all the way. Measuring 584 yards from the bear tees, it plays longer than the yardage indicates. The second shot is key to leave yourself a short iron or wedge to this elevated green which is protected by the water hazard front and right. This par 3 provides a challenge with club selection because it has one of the shallowest greens on the course. Once you have the right club, avoid the large bunker on the right and the collection area on the left. Take your 2- putt par and move on. This hole hosts the most challenging tee shot

we have. A long drive placed to the right of the massive fairway bunker will leave a long iron or hybrid to a green that is another Nicklaus Design staple, sloped from back left to front right. And don’t forget about the well placed green- side bunker, it will catch an errant approach shot. The Back Nine at Timber Banks A solid tee shot slightly left of center will leave a short iron approach on this shorter par 4. Accurate club selection is critical to find the relatively shallow putting surface. The fairway bunker on the left is 259 yards from the BEAR tees. CAUTION! Lateral water hazard right of fairway bunker and behind green! See Timber Banks on last page

Timber Banks bunker! Timber Banks’ second par 5 requires brains, brawn, and a deft touch. The fairway is wider than it appears from the tee. Avoid the bunker on the right and you will marvel at the challenges that remain. Place your second shot where you can use your “old reliable” for your third. You will need all its magic to safely find the elevated green. The bunker on the right is 296 yards from the BEAR tees. One of Mr. Nicklaus’s most masterful short par 4’s, do not be deceived by #15’s beauty. The bunkers on the right grab the headlines; lateral water hazards on the left and right do the damage. The sliver of a green com-

pletes the package. The bunkers on the right are 360 yards from the BEAR tees. The Seneca River and an early peek at Timber Banks’ coming attractions add majesty to an already beautiful par 3. The green is the largest on this nine, but…the greenside bunker is as well. Choose wisely. The prudent play may be a lay-up short of the cross bunkers leaving a comfortable mid-iron approach on this medium length, slight dogleg right par 4. When the wind is right a long drive will leave only a short pitch. The green is narrow with no bunkers and water to its left. The first bunker on the right is 222 yards from the BEAR tees

Kids are particularly susceptible to sports injuries especially those younger than eight. They are typcially less corrdinated and have slower reaction times than adults because they are still growing and developing. In addition, kids mature at different rates, and there’s often a substantial difference in height and weight between kids of the same age. When kids of varying sizes play sports together, there may be an increased risk of injury. If you or a family member needs physical therapy, please call our clinic at 315-476-3176 to schedule an appointment. We are proud to offer hight trained and experienced professionals to serve you.

Almost half of the sports injuries suffered by middle- and high-school children are caused by overuse. Moreover, a coalition of doctors’ groups and elite athletes involved in the Stop Sports Injuries campaign says that these injuries are preventable. According to this campaign, the sports with the highest risk of overuse injuries are baseball, basketball, cheerleading, dancing, football, gymnastics, running, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, and volleyball. The factor that underlies overuse injuries in all these sports is specialization. This is to say that children are being forced to choose a single sport to concentrate on and are playing it nearly exclusively all year-round. P.S. Because they often have no barometer for when As a result, their growing bodies do not get the they should stop playing, children simply keep playing chance they need to rest and recover. and risk further injury.

Good Sports SU bowl bid denied by Louisville By Kareem Obeid The Syracuse University football team is on the brink of an appearance in a bowl game - but thanks to Louisville, it’s not there yet. That bowl appearance stalled thanks to Louisville, who had a strong second half Saturday on its way to beating the Orange 28-20 in the Carrier Dome in front of 40,245 spectators. All the Cardinals did was outscore SU 14-3 in the last two quarters and stop the Orange in its last four offensive possessions. Thus, Louisville continued its head-to-head domination of the series, as it owns a 6-1 edge over the Orange. Louisville (5-4, 2-2, Big East) defeated SU (6-3, 3-2 Big East) in with a balanced offense featuring 160 yards on the ground and 143 yards through the air, combined with a relentless blitzing defense. Although the Cardinals were missing two of its best players (quarterback Adam Froman and running back Bilal Powell), it still came out on top. For the visitors, backup quarterback Justin Burke completed 13 of 25 passes for 143 yards, and redshirt freshman Jeremy Wright ran for 98 yards and two touchdowns. Louisville’s

win snapped what had been a 12-game losing streak on the road. Ryan Nassib, meanwhile, registered 19of-32 passing for 155 yards and one TD. He made a few mistakes throwing untimely hurried passes, but the offensive line certainly did not help his team’s cause. The SU turnovers, for the most part, were attributed to blitzing pressure, leading to a collapsing pocket that did not allow enough time for Nassib release the football. “We had a chance to make some plays,� head coach Doug Marrone said. “At times we did, and at times we didn’t. They (Louisville) capitalized on all the mistakes we made.� Delone Carter still rushed for 107 yards on 21 carries. Carter, in his stellar career, has 10 games with 100 or more rushing yards and, in this game, surpassed Floyd Little for fifth place on Syracuse’s all-time list. In the first quarter, SU was in good position to score at the Louisville 41. However, linebacker Daniel Brown sacked Nassib, forcing a fumble that Antowone Candy recovered. The Cardinals wasted no time cashing in. Burke found Mike Bellamy, who made a one-handed, over-the-shoulder catch that

registered a 13-yard play. The drive was capped off by Wright’s 26-yard TD run, giving the Cardinals with a 7-0 lead. On SU’s ensuing possession, it had an excellent drive start near midfield because of Daniel Graham’s 26-yard kickoff return. One play later, Nassib delivered a strike connecting to Alec Lemon for a 51-yard TD reception, tying things up at 7-7. The Orange, who came into the game ranked among the nation’s best in fewest penalties was hindered by costly mistakes. For example, a 15-yard face mask penalty led to Burke throwing a 29-yard pass to tight end Josh Chichester moving the Cardinals to the three-yard line. Burke’s eight-yard TD pass to Andrell Smith helped the ca The Orange would again tie score late in the second quarter. SU displayed a powerful running attack, with the offensive line creating holes for Antwon Bailey and Carter to navigate through. Nassib connected to Van Chew for a 12-yard completion, and Carter polished off the drive with an eight-yard TD run to even it again, at 14-14. Just 33 seconds before halftime, SU took its only lead of the game. The Cardinals had a first-and-10 at the 25 when Mikhail Marinovich stripped the ball from Burke and Chandler Jones recovered it. SU eventually came away


with a 23-yard Ross Krautman field goal, and led 17-14 at the break. But on Louisville’s opening possession of the second half, it engineered a nine-play drive that ended with a go-ahead score. Wright receiving a toss sweep from Burke and finding the end zone on a 12-yard run. SU almost answered, but in the game’s biggest play, Lemon surprisingly dropped Nassib’s pass near the end zone for what would have been a go-ahead TD. The Orange had to settle for a Krautman 42-yard field goal that made the score 21-20. “Nobody was feeling for themselves,� said Carter, referring to Lemon’s dropped TD pass. “We don’t let one play ruin our demeanor or affect us.� Still, the Cardinals’ impenetrable defense limited SU to a total of 62 second-half yards. Louisville extended the lead early in the fourth quarter with an impressive 12-play, 90-yard drive, and when Burke hit the 6-9 Cinchester for a 21 yard TD pass, the Dome crowd was deflated. From that point on SU’s offense would not recover as, on its last four possessions, it did not even cross midfield. Now the Orange will go to Rutgers on Saturday, again seeking that seventh win to clinch a winning record for 2010 – and that bowl bid, too.

Random Thoughts: A Giant undertaking By Phil Blackwell

Brian Wilson leaned back, fired once more to the plate. Nelson Cruz swung and missed. And just like that, 53 years of San Francisco waiting to rule Major League Baseball was over. The Giants’ conquest of the Texas Rangers in the 106th edition of the World Series was total. From lights-out work by the four starting pitchers to well-timed bursts of power at the plate, San Francisco made Texas look feeble.

And so a city with amazing history and amazing beauty finally has a baseball championship. To see the community of San Francisco, from the China Basin to Golden Gate Park and all points in between, embrace these misfit Giants in their own unique way was fun to watch. It’s easy to forget, more than 2,500 miles away from the Bay Area, just how deep and rich San Francisco’s baseball history runs. Perhaps their wait for a title was not as obsessed about, or documented, as those in Boston (now gone), Chicago (half-gone) and Cleveland (still there), but it had its own particular pain. Before the Giants even showed up in 1958, San Francisco

could crow about its long ties to the Pacific Coast League, to the Seals, and to Joe DiMaggio and the 61-game hit streak he got with the Seals before putting on pinstripes. Yet things went awry almost from the moment Horace Stoneham showed up with his Giants. Stoneham thought he found a perfect spot for a ballpark when he surveyed the land on Candlestick Point, in the morning, before the winds whipped up. Then the Stick was built – and those gales would enter legend. Hearty fans would bundle up for night games – in mid-July. Stu Miller got blown off the mound in the All-Star Game, and they called it a balk. Who knows how many home runs Willie Mays and Willie McCovey lost to those breezes. By all rights, those 1960s Giants should have grabbed a

few championships. Five future inductees to Cooperstown – Mays, McCovey, Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, Gaylord Perry – were on hand. Yet they kept finishing second , mostly to the Cardinals or to the hated Dodgers. The one time San Francisco did break through – beating the Giants in a 1962 playoff – it got to the seventh game of the World Series against the Yankees, and had the tying and winning runs in scoring position in the bottom of the ninth. And as Charlie Brown sadly noted, McCovey could not hit the ball three feet higher – or even two feet higher.

Then came a 27-year wait, through lots of ups and downs (and just two division titles), for another National League pennant in 1989. These were the Will Clark and Kevin Mitchell-led Giants, but they had the bad luck to run into Bay Area rivals Oakland – and then it all got irrelevant after the Loma Prieta earthquake struck just before Game 3. Four years later, Barry Bonds arrived, all but saving the franchise from moving to St. Petersburg and getting a gorgeous, breathtaking park built near the Bay Bridge, right on the water. And yet still there was heartbreak, from losing the last pre-wild card pennant on

the last day in 1993 to that 2002 World Series where the Giants, five outs from glory, gave it away to the Angels. Never mind that, when the revelations of BALCO and performance-enhancing drugs emerged and Bonds was in the center of it all, the entire baseball world turned on San Francisco. Granted, Bonds was a difficult guy, but to many Giants partisans it felt like piling on, and it didn’t appear that any championship was going to soothe those wounds. Until 2010, that is.
