Sports Saturdays: Duquette and Showalter Snag Season Awards

November 15th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

278717-330-0 soc_u_showalter11_288x162The Balitmore Orioles can say they are home to the 2014 MLB Executive of the Year, and the 2014 AL Manager of the Year.

Dan Duquette, who is the executive vice president of baseball operations for the Orioles, was given the award on Monday after his leadership in the front office helped the O’s to their best season in 17 years.

Duquette won the award back in 1992 as well, when he was the general manager for the Montreal Expos.

Big signings and roster manipulation carried out by Duquette were crucial to the O’s success this season. Not only did Duquette manage to sign big names like Nelson Cruz and Andrew Miller, he was also able to find players that were disregarded by other teams, players he knew had loads of potential.

Theatre Thursdays: “Gone Girl” at Senator Theatre

November 13th, 2014 by Lauren Keyes

Gone-Girl-poster-3-300x449 What: Gone Girl at Senator Theatre

Where: Senator Theatre

When: Various Show times

Unless you’re one of those people who refuses to watch a film after you’ve already read it in book form, Gone Girl is  a must-see, and it’s right here in Baltimore! Based on Gillian Flynnunearths best seller, Gone Girl tells the story of Nick Dunne, whose wife, Amy, has gone missing. When Dunne, played by Ben Affleck, reports his wife’s disappearance, investigations turn what once seemed to be the ideal marriage into a crumbling union of man and wife. Under police and media pressure, Dunne’s lies and odd behavior make him a suspect of the disappearance (murder?) of Amy Dunne. I don’t want to spoil the twisted thriller, so I will say no more. Just head down to Senator Theatre, grab your large popcorn (extra butter!), and your box of “Buncha Crunch”, and enjoy unraveling the mystery! See show times here!

Rams Change Mind About Davis; Start Hill

November 12th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

mag_NFLpreview065_USAtoday_300x200Jeff Fisher is a very good coach, but he just made a very stupid, shallow move.

Just two days after making the announcement that Austin Davis, the 2nd-year gunslinger from the University of Southern Mississippi, would continue to be the starter for the St. Louis Rams, Fisher changed his mind and made the decision to start veteran quarterback Shaun Hill instead.

Davis has been the starter for 8 of the 9 games for the Rams this season after Hill went down in the season opener. In those 8 starts, Davis has gone 3-5, throwing for 2,001 yards, 12 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Davis currently has a season passer rating of 85.1 and a QBR of 37.6.

The glaring issue for Davis is the fact that he has had many costly turnovers in his last couple of games. This past week against the division opponent Cardinals, Davis threw 2 interceptions and lost a fumble in the 4th quarter. But what 1st-year starter isn’t going to struggle against the Cardinals defense?

Men’s Soccer Season Ends In Double OT

November 10th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

loyola soccer Loyola’s 2014 men’s soccer season ended with a heartbreaker. The Hounds lost 1-0 to Patriot League opponent Lafayette on a penalty kick in the 102nd minute.

The team finishes their 2014 campaign with an overall record of 5-8-4, and a conference record of 2-5-2.

The senior class for the Hounds fittingly finished by leaving it all out on the field. Joseph Cahalan almost put the Hounds up in regulation time, but his shot went off the crossbar, and Connor Thompson almost won it for the Hounds in the first OT period, rifling a shot towards the right side of the net, only to be barely denied by Lafayette goalkeeper Alexander Leavy.
