D.C. Offers Waterfront Baseball Stadium – The Post
Sources Say Owners Will Support Moving Expos to Washington
Lots of details on the preferred ballpark site, which turns out to be in SE. I guess that would put it near the Navy Yard Metro (see graphic). M Street is already undergoing redevelopment, but the last time I drove through, it seemed it would be a 8 to 5:30 type of area, but this could make it so much more. Overall, this appears to be great news. Naturally, Peter Angelo$ has said he will fight. My advice, take it with dignity and grace Pete, so you don’t alienate your dwindling D.C. fanbase.

Probably the most (if not only) promising sign about last week’s game was the defense. They started off poorly, but once they tasted a little success really started playing well.
Paterno wants more from Wake – Patriot-News
So do I, though it is probably more bench time for him. He is underachieving, as he has been throughout his career.

Penn State Notebook: Paterno tried to wake up starting LB with benching – Post-Gazette
I think JoePa probably woke up Dan Connor more than Derek Wake, but we will see. Sadly, Connor is probably too small to be terribly useful this week.

NCAA ponders adding 12th game to college football season – Post-Gazette
Paterno is not in favor of it, but I have to disagree on this one. More football is good, particularly if it means more Eastern rivalry games.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM
Yesterday, we celebrated my mother Barbara’s birthday with dinner at a Vienna’s East Chateau, a Chinese place with mediocre service. However, the food was very good. We also enjoyed cake and ice cream back at Yurasko HQ. Many more, Mom!
