Sports Beat by Bill McCaffrey

Next week Iıll have my baseball picks and I still have a problem with the Baltimore Orioles.  Their lack of pitching is really too much to overcome.   Daniel Cabrera is their number one pitcher and like it or not Steve Trachsel is number two until someone moves him out.  Chris Ray is out until August.   Nick Markakis, Luke Scott, and Melvin Mora (if he stays healthy) should provide the power the team needs.  If the team trades Brian Roberts it will be a big mistake, the Orioles look like the anchor team of their division and probably the whole American League, Tampa Bay and Kansas City will leave the Birds in their nest.   It doesnıt look like Bartelo Colon is the answer to the Red Sox quest to win the division; I think the Yankees and Blue Jays will battle it out for first in the AL East.   I think the Orioles and Nationals are fooling with fire because they havenıt given Nick Markakis a long term contract and the Nats are doing the same by not locking in Ryan Zimmerman.   Kyle Lohse gets a one year 4.25 million deal from the St. Louis Cardinals.   Nats outfielder Wily Mo Pena will be out four to six weeks.   Pirates give RHP Ian Snell a three year deal.

Terp Women Earn Top Seed in NCAA Spokane Region
Maryland receives its first No. 1 seed since 1989

The University of Maryland women's basketball team earned one of the top four seeds in the NCAA Division I Championship, the NCAA announced on Monday night. The Terps are the No. 1 seed in the Spokane Regional and open with local-foe Coppin State on Sunday, March 23 in Comcast Center .   It is the second time in school history the Terrapins earn one of the top four seeds in the championship. Maryland received itıs first-ever No. 1 seeding in 1989.   Maryland is 30-3 on the season, with its losses coming to teams ranked in the top 15, including two against teams in the top five. The Terrapins are 13-3 against teams who made it into this year's tournament.   The Terps begin their postseason facing the Eagles, who earned the automatic bid out of the MEAC. Coppion is 22-11 entering the post season. Nebraska and Xavier also come to College Park . The Huskers were awarded the No. 8 seed in the Spokane Region after going 20-11 on the season. They take on the ninth-seeded Musketeers, who were 24-8, in the first round.   Nebraska and Xavier tip off the NCAA Tournament action at Comcast Center at noon, followed by the Terps and the Eagles who will tip off at approximately 2:30 p.m. or 30 minutes after the conclusion of game one.   Four more teams will be beginning their title hunt in College Park . From the Oklahoma City Regional, third-seeded Duke (23-9) takes on No. 14 seed Murray State (24-7) at 7 p.m. Sixth-seeded Arizona State (21-10) and No. 11 Temple (21-12) square off 30 minutes following.   The winners of the first-round games advance to the second round on Tuesday, March 25.

NCAA WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT Sunday & Tuesday, March 23 & 25 College Park, Md.   Sunday, March 23 No. 8 Nebraska (20-11) vs. No. 9 Xavier (24-8) 12 p.m. (ESPN2) No. 1 Maryland (30-3) vs. No. 16 Coppin State (22-11) approx. 2:30 p.m. (ESPN)   Saturday, March 25 Second Round games Times TBA


Itıs tournament time in NCAA Menıs and Womenıs basketball and you should remember back in the 1940-50 era both were considered on a par and generally outstanding teams in menıs basketball play in and also were part of the gambling scandals of the day.   Who can forget Kentucky , CC NY , Bradley, LIU, NYU and St. Johns, those days and players like Alex Groza (brother of Lou Groza the all pro kicker with the Cleveland Browns), Ralph Beard and on the other side Clark Kellogg who couldnıt be bought but CCNY Ed Roman and Ed Warner could.   Today the NCAA is the big guy on the block and the NIT just an after thought (sorry Maryland fans it is what it is).   I have a rooting interest in Georgia because of Dermis Feltor who played high school basketball at Surrattsville and coached as an assistant for the legendary coach John Mappas at Charles County Community College and Notre Dame and their coach Mike Bray a DeMatha man.   Another local high school player, Tubby Smith who played at Great Mills and now is coaching at Minnesota where the Golphers had their best season in a while and his team just lost to Maryland in the NBA, oh and how about McNamaraıs Todd Bozermann who has Morgan State in the NCAAıs.  Oh yes I have to mention John Wiley who has taken Prince Georgeıs Community College to the National JUCO tournament after his team upset Bill Lewitts Cecil College Team.   Back to the NCAA (Menıs), I think its going to come down to UCLA and North Carolina .  But I also think Texas , Pitt, and Drake have a chance and the Wisconsin-Kansas State game might give the winner a big push to the title.   But donıt count out John Thompsonıs Georgetown Hoyas because they have a high powered team led by a high powered player, Roy Hibbert (why didnıt the Terps get this guy?).   I like Maryland in the Womenıs tournament.

Two Terps Earn WBCA Region All-American Honors
Langhorne earns the honor for the third-straight year

Maryland women's basketball players Crystal Langhorne and Kristi Toliver were two of seven players named to the State Farm/WBCA Region 2 All-America team, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced on Wednesday. It is the third time Langhorne receives the honor in her career. The two were among the 52 players named to eight regional teams.

Second on the team in scoring with 16.5 points per game, while grabbing a team-leading 9.2 rebounds per game, Langhorne broke the program's scoring and rebounding records this season. She is the only men's or women's player in school history with 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds. She had her jersey honored on Feb. 24 at the conclusion of the Terps' game vs. Florida State . Langhorne is also second in the nation in field goal shooting, making 64.6 percent of her attempts. Junior Kristi Toliver receives region nods for the first time. She is the team's leader with 16.8 points per game, while ranking fourth in the nation with 7.5 assists per game. She is one assist from tying the ACC record for assists in a season, having dished out 248 in 33 games this season. Toliver has been named a finalist for the Nancy Lieberman Award, an honor given to the nation's top collegiate women's point guard. Both Langhorne and Toliver were first team All-ACC picks. Langhorne became the first player in school history, and one of 10 in ACC history, to garner first team all-conference nods three times. Other Region 2 selections were Duke's Chante Black , North Carolina 's Erlana Larkins and LaToya Pringle, NC State's Khadijah Whittington and Virginia 's Monica Wright. The Terrapins are preparing for the start of the NCAA Tournament. Maryland hosts the first and second rounds at Comcast Center on March 23 and 25.

James Moore manages to fend off JC Candelo at MSG!
Pawel Wolak clobbers his way to another KO win in the co-feature.

By Mike Indri
Retired Boxers Foundation

New York - James Moore proved he was a legitimate draw as the Wamu Theater in Madison Square Garden was packed with the Irish fighters die-hard fans.  The native of Arklow , Ireland also proved he was "for real" as a fighter, surviving an early scare from veteran contender Juan Carlos (JC) Candelo and prevailing to pull out a career defining ten round unanimous decision win. Not fighting like a former contender who was coming into this fight with a record of 2-5-1 in his last eight bouts, a rejuvenated Candelo traded with Moore early and had the fair skinned middleweight hopeful cut over the eye in round three.  While the cut was seriously bothering Moore , Candelo caught the troubled fighter more often then he should have and hushed the boisterous Irish faithful throughout the MSG Theater. The thirty year-old Moore battled through the rough spots and began wearing down the body of the Colombian fighter, a weary thirty-four year-old fighter who has been in many boxing wars and is not the same fighter that challenged Ronald "Winky" Wright for his IBF light middleweight championship five years ago (12 RD Unanimous decision loss: 03/01/03) in Las Vegas. The gutsy late round work by Moore solidified the win and ensured a Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend for his huge legion of fans that filled the Theater at Madison Square Garden . Judge Bob Gilson scored it 97-92, Julie Lederman had it 97-93 and Tony Paolillo saw it a little closer at 95-94, all for the likeable James Moore, who stay perfect at 15-0 (10 KO's), while the aging veteran Candelo, who can only be extremely proud of his all out effort, drops to 27-10-4 (18 KO's).   The co-feature bout saw Polish middleweight Pawel Wolak pound cagey Dupre Strickland into quick submission.  Slated for ten rounds, Wolak sent his loyal throng of delirious fans home early with his second round knockout of a durable boxer who had only been stopped once before, in his third professional fight (02/17/01 vs. Carl Handy: KO 3) over seven years ago. Fighting his usual swarming, two-fisted attack, Wolak landed many hard body shots and controlled the action.  The only concer n was the blood flowing from Wolak's right eye as the round ended. Wolak came out "smoking" in round two, working the body and head of Strickland.  With the cut over his right eye still bleeding freely, Wolak clobbered his weakened opponent into the ropes and drove an overhand right to the head, dropping Strickland down onto the canvas in a heap!   The usually durable Slidell , LA. fighter was unable to get to his feet and was counted out by the highly respected Steve Smoger at the 3:06 mark of round two.  In Strickland's last fight, he went the 10 round distance in a losing effort against another popular fighter, Irish John Duddy. With the impressive knockout win Wolak jumps to 20-0 (14 KO's), while Strickland dips to 18-3-1 (7 KO's).

On the Celtic Gloves Promotions undercard:
Brooklyn welterweight Martin Wright improved to 5-0-1 (2 KO's) with his decisive four round unanimous decision win over Juan Carlos Sanchez, now fighting out of the Bronx, by way of Mexico.  Wright controlled the bout from the onset and almost had Sanchez, now 3-3-1 (1 KO), out at the final bell. Simon O'Donnell, trained by former two-time heavyweight world champion Tim Witherspoon, knocked out Ohio native Chris Overby in round two of a scheduled four round middleweight bout.  After roughing up Overby throughout the first three minutes with a solid body attack, the Irish fighter who now fights out of Philadelphia dro pped his damaged opponent with a big right head to the head.  Overby, now 8-9 (2 KO's), stayed on his knees as referee Mike Ortega counted him out, 1 minute and 33 seconds into the second round.  O'Donnell climbs to 5-1 (3 KO) with the impressive knockout win. Jules Blackwell, from Philadelphia , battled Jaesung Lee, a Hanami, Korea import now fighting out of Queens , NY to a six round draw in an entertaining featherweight contest.  Blackwell jumped out early until a nasty head butt in round two opened a cut on the forehead of both fighters; Blackwell definitely came out in worse shape and his performance was obviously affected.

Judge Bill Costello, a former welterweight world champion, scored the bout 59- 55 for Lee, whil e Julie Lederman had it 58-56 for Blackwell.  Ron McNair's 57-57 scorecard made it a draw.  Lee is now 8-1-1 (5 KO's), while Blackwell manages to remain undefeated at 7-0-1 (2 KO's). The lone female bout saw good looking Philadelphia Jr. Middleweight Olivia Fonseca defeat New Yorker Cristy Nickel via unanimous decision over four rounds.  While a close fight, Fonseca come on strong over the last two rounds; staggering Nickel in the third and landing several clean punches over the final three minutes to ensure victory.  The judges saw it 39-37, 40-36 and 39-37 all for Olivia Fonseca, who improves to 2-1-2 (1KO), while the popular Nickel slips to 7-6 (4 KO's). Staten Island native Robert Phillips drew a too difficult task for his pro debut, in the name of Khabir Suleymanov, a rugged Russian brawler from Brooklyn .  A head butt opened a diffic ult cut over the nose of Suleymanov in round one and only the proficient work of cut man Darren Antola, a Kenilworth, NJ native, kept the cut from being a problem for the head first fighter.  Suleymanov battered Phillips all over the ring and only the ropes appeared to be holding Phillips up at the end of the four round bantamweight match.  The always-busy "Russian Twin" earned the one-sided unanimous decision victory, as the judges scored it 40-35, 40-36 and 40-35.  Suleymanov stays perfect at 3-0 (1 KO).

Jose "Poncho" Espinal knocked down Joe Rosa once in the first round and twice in the second and final round of the scheduled four round Jr. lightweight fight between two New Yorkers.  Espinal, from Brooklyn, rose to 4-3-1 with his first professional knockout, as Rosa, from the Bronx , could not handle the Espinal barrage.  Referee Mike Ortega wisely waved off the mismatch as Rosa arose f rom the deck for the third time; 58 seconds into round two. Oisin Fagan had little trouble with Brian Carden, who traveled from St. Joseph , Missouri to get knocked out.  Fagan, born in Dublin , Ireland hurt Carden often in round one with a strong body attack and had his opponent in deep trouble early in round two as referee Pat Sullivan came in and stopped the beating just 16 seconds into the second round.  Fagan improved to 20-5 (13 KO's), while Carden, not happy with the stoppage, dropped to 6-5. In the final fight before the featured bouts, sharp looking Jr. Middleweight prospect Luis Ruiz stayed perfect, now 3-0, with a lopsided second round knockout over still winless Terrell Boggs (0-2).

After a solid first round Ruiz landed a wicked body shot late in round two which forced Boggs to turn his back, then squat in his corner as referee Steve Smoger quickly called a halt to the "All Ruiz" bout at the 2:14 mark, Boggs being Ruiz's first pro knockout victim.

Ten fights, with tons of excitement and even live music.  A great effort by Celtic Gloves Promotions, and an extremely entertaining night of boxing in the finest place for boxing Madison Square Garden . Mike Indri can be contacted at: RBFNJMIKE@aol.c om


Bill, I just found out that the wife of USA Boxing President Jose Rosario has colon cancer.  Letıs all try to give her and Jose all the support we can.  I know all of you will say an extra prayer tonight for her FULL recovery. Henry

Henry, She has been added to my prayer list and I an asking my friends to add her also. Bill

Bill, Just to let you know Cleve Francis and Friends Band appeared at the Birchmere in Alexandria , VA March 22 @ 7:30.  The music was great; also my son is the acoustic guitarist.  By the way, are the submarine races still on at Haines Point and Anacostia? Marlene

Marlene, Races may still be on but you may have to wear a helmet in those areas now. Bill

Bill, Gene Schroeder was named both Football End & Basketball Center All High in the Times Herald for the 46-47 season, and basketball All High in most of the other papers. The other football ENDS named All High that year were Hal Sponsler, Central; Jim McCauley, Tech;  and Dick Taylor, Coolidge (who was also named both  Football & Basketball  All High that school year);  the Post ran  an early (pre '54) All MET Football Team  in 46 that had E- Johnny O'Keefe, Gonzaga;  Jack McGill, W-L. Since I concentrated on  the 3 major sports (baseball the other sport),  I'd have to check the 47 Daily News as they sometimes ran a Track All High Team....and report back..... Dan

Dan, Thanks Bill

Bill, Sounds like a great event, you need the 50ıs there.  Reminder that the Retired PG County Coaches/Teachers/Friends will NOT have a Spring luncheon this year.  We have switched our date to the fall since we had such a good turn out last Fall. Shelton P.S.  Might want to add my brother-in-law Bill Nordan (DC HS baseball player) to your mailing list.

Bill, Is ³Ironhead² the lunk that works at MDOT Headquarters? Curious

Curious, No ³Lunkhead² is not ³Ironhead².  Say are you related to the late ³Pimp C²? Bill

Bill, Didnıt you go swimming at the Rocks?  Who were some of those sweet young ladies who went there with you and Saccardi? Marian D.

Marian, Youıll have to buy my book (when it comes out) to learn those names.  One young lady who went swimming at Herald Harbor with me and Sic was Bette Dixon. Bill

Bill, I think ³Ironhead² is cute. Granny Lyons , Charles Town Village

Dear GL, Itıs all in the eye of the beholder. Bill

Bill, Wasnıt there an A&P store next to Scates Furniture on 13th Street at Upshir Street NW ? Guy Foxwell

Dear Guy, Yes and werenıt you that nerdy usher at the Savoy Theater? Bill

Bill, Subject: Rudy Hayes(50) had a stroke I received an email from Rudy Hayes'(50) wife Donna(50) that  Rudy had a stroke on New Year's Day.  He was in rehab for almost the whole month of January.  He is home now and still going through rehab.  It has made his right arm numb and he has a very hard time using that arm and his thought process is giving him quite a bit of trouble also.  It will take some time but we are praying for full recovery. I had the honor of being their best man and Rudy was a member of Anacostia DeMolay Chapter. Rudy is currently serving as the President of the Virginia State Elks Association. He is a Past Exhalted Ruler of the Fairfax/Alexandria Elks Lodge. Last July the Virginia State Lodges were invited to participate in the Tournament of Champions at Seven Springs Resort in PA. This tournament has youth participants from Elk Lodges from MD, DE, PA, WV, KY and VA to compete in Golf/Tennis and Bowling. Rudy and Donna attended this event and it gave us an opportunity to talk about old times.   Keep Rudy and Donna in your prayers.     Eddie Peterson


Economy, crime, illegals, NAFTA, Superhigmay, rising and outrageous prices at the gas pump and rising BG&E rates all have replaced education as bigger concerns lately.

Now I hear Governor Martin OıMalleyıs approval rating had slipped to 34%.  Most people also disapprove of all Presidential candidates.  Where is Jesse Ventura when you need him?  I would suggest that most elected officials are out of touch with the average people of the Country.

How about that rapist and robbery and assault thug committing his crimes at various light rail stations?  (Sun article by Justin Fenton on Thursday, March 13th), riding free light rail, MTA bus (5 to 10% fare boxes out of service), MARC ticket fraud, and canceled trains.  Hey Governor, itıs about time you had a closer look at MDOT and MTA, donıt you think?  How much money is the State losing on this sort of thing?  Unfortunately, most lower level State employees are afraid to speak up because of what happened to George Tarburton.   I was sorry to hear of the death of Steve Garland (SHA engineer and caller at Bingo World) my deepest sympathy goes to his wife Kim and his family.

Our deepest sympathy goes to the families of the following: Alec G. McCullock, star baseball & basketball player at Robert E. Lee HS, he played with the Alexandria Dukes, the Pirates, Orioles, Indians and Astros organizations. Eugene William ³Bill² Johnson, Priory/St. Anselins HS grad. Garland Sevier Ferguson III, Western (DC) HS grad. John ³Bo² McLaughlin, High Point HS grad. Kevin J. Holland, DeMatha HS grad. Andrew Garrels, Loyola HS and Loyola College grad. Steven Joseph ³Steve² Dwyer, Archbishop John Carroll HS grad. Patricia Grimmel Walshl, St. Ceciliaıs Academy. Claire Courtney, Georgetown Visitation HS. Dora Berkman Kaplowitz, Central HS grad. Joseph Morisi, former owner of the Lanham Inn. Jonathan Hall, Eastern HS grad. William N. Kaufmann, Sr., former owner of Kaufmanıs Tavern in Gambrills and a member of the Arundel HS Hall of Fame. Charlie Bauer, chef/owner of the Rockfish restaurant. Michael Sucher, Parkdale HS grad.

The Virginia Capitals are causing a stir in the NHL.

You can reach me on, my blog is there as is Rex Sniderıs and Ed Frankovic, great information and comments on these blogs.

The NHL on HDTV really makes the game much better to watch.   I wonder where they are today. Joanne Parsons, Carolyn Woodward, Charlie Folk, Jerry Webster, Dixie Lee, Martha Thomas, Kathleen Hawkins, Margarite Stephens, Joyce Gardiner, Marie McKinley, Jim Albee.   When are they bringing back ³Cane², ³Moonlight², ³Monk² and ³Burn Notice²?  Also why arenıt they continuing ³ Las Vegas ²?  Monk should bring back Bitty Schram, sheıs a cool person.   Look-a-Likes:  Paul Weasel and Nervous Norvus, Boom, Boom Mannota and Ironhead, John Pocket and Christian Siriano.   The Lady Bulldogs of Bowie State dropped a twin bill to West Chester 11-2 and 8-0.  The Lady Bulldogs have a make up twin bill with Lincoln scheduled for March 27th at Bowie .   Navy menıs basketball coach Billy Lange got a five year extension on his contract.  Dave Lanham is moving from being AD at St. Maryıs to being AD at Meade High School .   If you get a chance catch the ³Pip and Zastrow² movie about Pip Moyer and Zastrow Simms.  Itıs a great one.    Carrie Underwood has become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.   Vince McMahon had his star added to the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
