Sports Saturdays: Tri to Help Midnight Indoor Triathlon

March 14th, 2013 by Anthony Santiago

Train for a Triathlon 460
This Saturday at 9PM, the Stroup Kid For Kids Epilepsy Foundation is hosting a triathlon at Meadowbrook Aquatic & Fitness Center.

The Stroup Kid For Kids Epilepsy Foundation is dedicated to helping individuals affected by epilepsy and other seizure disorders. They raise money for education, advocacy in government, and for research in treatments for those that suffer from this condition.

The organization was formed in 2004 after Adelyn Stroup, the daughter of Trent and Tina Stroup, had her first seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy. Her parents didn’t know where to go after their daughter had just been diagnosed with a very rare form of epilepsy. They pooled some assets together and attempted to find research and others who may have been in a similar situation. Soon, a large organization formed and began to advocate for others like Adelyn.

Is that baseball I smell? Or hear? It’s Baseball Season

March 2nd, 2013 by Anthony Santiago

EVAN LONGORIAThe groundhog that claims to know about the weather told the world we still have about another month of winter. However, baseball didn’t get that memo and began to report to training camp as early as this week. Full team squads began Monday, and around the country teams are looking to defeat the defending World Series Champions, the San Francisco Giants.

Leading up to the start of baseball season, we will look extensively at each division in both conferences.

This week we start with the American League East.
Baltimore Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles didn’t do much in regards to free agency. Instead, the Orioles seemed to focus on securing the core team that they established when making their run to the World Series. The Orioles did add some help in Alexi Cassilla, Steve Pearce, and Randy Wolfe. They also picked up some minor league contracts to help during Spring Training. Read the rest of this entry »

Top 40 for 2.27.13

February 28th, 2013 by Eric Loose

936full-thom-yorkeLast week gave us m b v, and this week blesses us with Amok, the new album from Atoms of Peace. If you haven’t yet heard of them, it’s basically another vehicle for Radiohead-mastermind Thom Yorke to call his own. This time, he’s joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers’s bassist Flea, as well as a Radiohead produced, Beck’s drummer, and a Brazilian percussionist. The album has some sweet Brazilian vibes to it, and many have compared it to Thom Yorke’s other project, The Eraser. We highly recommend it if you’re into that kinda thing. Otherwise, enjoy spring break, WLOY listeners!
