Don’t be surprised if you don’t see No. 5 in the backfield for East this season. Instead of rocking that, Bryce Brown will rock the No. 11 jersey this year. The change came as a tribute to his older brother Arthur who will wear that number at Miami this season. The switch to 1-1 is a year premature actually. Bryce was going to wear No. 32 this season, the number Arthur wore at East, but the Aces ordered new uniforms and don’t have a number 32. They both plan to wear No. 11 at Miami, which is legal because one is on offense and one is on defense.
If you missed it in the paper this morning, here’s the story of the 9-year-old that is so much better than his peers in a baseball league in New Haven, Conn., that they won’t let him pitch. This was hilarious to me. Especially the part where he gets on the mound in a game and the other team just packs it up and leaves. Really. Is that what you want to tell your kids as a coach. If you don’t think you can compete, just pack your stuff and go home. Actually it reminds me of a similar situation that happened to one of my little league teams. When I was playing in a 11-and-12 league my team, the Reds, were the class of the league. The first game of the season we beat the Padres by some outlandish amount. We beat them so bad, at the next practice we were given new schedules that had asterisks by the game where we were supposed to play the Padres. The asterisks were to represent the games forfeited to the Reds by the Padres. We never let them live that down.
Down goes Costa. Oregon QB Nate Costa will miss 8-10 weeks due to a knee injury. Justin Roper has been assigned starting duties for this Saturday, however, expect to see Chris Harper get some PT as well.
