The ‘Dawson Bar’

A reader of Patrick MaManamon suggested it, and I’m all for it.


I’m not sure how many times it may come up in conversation, but from henceforth, whenever you are referring to the single, curved, pole support of a football goalpost- it shall be named the Dawson Bar.

As in the Phil Dawson Bar. While the Cleveland-Baltimore game earned the Dawson Bar national attention, it was the Buffalo game last week that cemented Dawson’s name on the bar permanently. Some who watched the game may not even be aware of it however.

Washington, Clifford leave Buckeyes thin at Corner

This just in from the Columbus Dispatch.

Ohio State starting cornerback Donald Washington and reserve corner Eugene Clifford have been suspended for the national championship game because of a violation of team rules, a source close to the team confirmed last night.

There were no details on the nature of the violation, except that it is not a legal issue.

Yeah, that makes sense…

Cavs end losing streak, worst team in the league gets called out by their coach…should have seen this coming.
Full disclosure- I didn’t see a second of this game. Had something else scheduled tonight, but figured this one should be over halfway through the fourth. Silly me. After Isaiah Thomas questioned the heart and character of his team in the media I should have seen this coming. This would be the game that the Knicks play out of their mind, and then go on a 4 or 5 game losing streak costing the coach his job. Could have put money on this really. The Cavs were coming off a double OT game, in which Zydrunas played waaaayyy too many minutes, and surprise, Hughes and Pavlovic combined for a 6 for 20 shooting night. LeBron had his usual numbers, but managed 6 steals in this one. All for nothing I guess.
