According to TRM, outstanding play came from captain Dillon Voorhees and fullbacks Ed Cua, Rich Zambrano and Henry Uribo. The coach added that the midfield and forwards spearheaded several attacks behind the play of Christian Rivas, Giancarlo Vargas, Jeremias Rojas, John Novak “and last but not least keeper, John Palocious, who had another solid game in goal.”
And although assistant Chris “The Baron” Raba does not take credit for losses and remains unbeaten, he made his presence felt nonetheless.
“Even though the Baron was sick as a dog, he was making moves on the sideline like a Russian chess champion, always one step ahead of the opposing coach,” noted TRM. “We just hope we can bounce back for an away game today against Collingswood. But I have no doubt that this team can do it.”

TRM said that the defense was anchored by captains Tyler Sekunda and Dillon Voorhees, along with fullbacks Ed Cua, Rich Veisz, and midfielders Jeff Ruble, Giancarlo Vargas, and Christian Riva, who was making his debut in place of the injured Tyler "The Cupcake" Demarie. Jonathan Palacios “hawked down all potential shots to gain his first shutout of the year.

Funari lauded the defensive effort of captain Tyler Sekunda, Rich Zambrano, Ed Cua, Dillon Voorhees, and Henry Uribe.
“Also,” Funari noted, “The Baron (Chris Raba) doesn’t want anyone to know he was here today. He doesn’t take credit for the losses, only the wins.”

We had a lot of good looks at the net, but just came up short in finding the back of the net, then we got beat three times down the field in our transition game, which all resulted in scores for Steinert. Hopefully we can string two good halves together in the future and put some in the back of the net next time around. The guys were upbeat, and can't wait to get back on the field against Robbinsville next Tuesday.”

Does anyone get
this AD exchange
other than those who voted for it?
June 14: OK, I’ve learned how to be a good man with a good heart through a series of repetitive days in Punxsutawney, Pa. I was purchased at an auction and got to spend the night with Andie McDowell. When I woke up this morning, “I Got You Babe” was no longer on the radio.
Yes folks, Groundhog Day is over. And if you didn’t see the movie, you have no idea what I just wrote about. Anyway, in laymen’s terms, the blog is back and ready to roll.
And just so you know, since Feb. 2, I predicted Louisville would win the NCAA Tournament and Florida Gulf Coast would reach the Sweet 16. I predicted the Pacers would beat the Knicks in the playoffs, I predicted the Ravens would win the Super Bowl and there would be a power outage at the game; I predicted Nicole Kasian would win the Inaugural Fish Bowl; I predicted Orb would win the Kentucky Derby but not the Preakness or Belmont; I predicted Argo would win Best Picture and I predicted Brian “The Chef” Giallella would get his own show on the Food Network.
I just never wrote it down. But I definitely predicted it. And I still hold out hope for the Chef!
One thing I couldn’t predict, however, is the following item.
* * *
Does anyone besides me find this Athletic Director swap between Hamilton West and Steinert quite perplexing?
OK, let me put it another way. Is there anyone not perplexed by it except for the six school board members who voted for it and the superintendent who defended it?
No one who really cares about this can give comments to the papers or me, or they will be looking for work so quick you’ll see a line of Kool-Aid Stands lined up from Five Points to the Whitehorse Circle with former educators all pouring the beverages. It’s called the “I want to say what I think but I have a family to feed” syndrome.
No one who voted for this gave any comment to the papers that I saw. Only Patty Del Guidice, one of the two who voted against it, gave her opinion as to why it was completely wrong that John Costantino was sent to Hamilton West and Steve Gazdek was sent to Steinert. And she made some darn good points.
Superintendent James Parla said he couldn’t comment, and would only say that sometimes a transfer can lead to a fresh perspective.
A fresh perspective!
Costantino has been at Steinert for less than two years! That’s about enough time to learn where all the lavatories are. I guess after two years he’s burned out and needs to go back to the school where he worked for 15 years.
If you’re gonna make a move and hide behind spin talk, at least make it something believable.
Tweets from students ran rampant once the announcement was tweeted by Fish4scores.
They weren’t happy tweets either. More like stunned tweets. And these are just from the kids, who were wondering what was going on.
Another tid-bit in Mike Macagnone’s interesting Trentonian story about this situation, is that Costantino was never given a reason for this puzzling move. He wanted to stay, they wanted him to go. If a guy is being forced to go somewhere against his wishes, shouldn’t he at least be given a reason?
Maybe there is no reason at all.
At least none that makes any sense.

I am proud to say I have not watched one hockey game all year, but I watched the equivalent of one the other night when I watched the start of the third period of the Hawks-Bruins Stanley Cup final opening game. I ended up watching a full game plus the third OT and it was awesome.
I really can’t hang with hockey during the season but every year the NHL proves that there really is nothing better than playoff hockey. That’s what happens when referees actually let them play. It gives the drama the chance to gain momentum with non-stop action.

Here’s a question. How good is Nottingham’s boys track & field team going to be with winter track back in Hamilton Township starting next winter? The Northstars have only gone 27-0 in dual meets without it.
* * *
Speaking of Nottingham, was there a school in the CVC who had a better 1-2 freshman punch in spring sports than the Northstars?
Kristin Hallam was downright awesome as a freshman softball hitter and pitcher, while Grace Dwyer has become quite visible on the New Jersey track & field radar.
When I was at the Group III meet in South Plainfield, writers from papers all over the state were asking me about the standout distance runner.
* * *
For those wondering, the road to Williamsport begins on June 29 when the District 12 Little League gets underway.
* * *
Don’t forget next weekend when the Mercer County American Legion League holds its college showcase at Mercer Park. It’s really a good idea for kids to get seen by college coaches and lets hope it’s successful.

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads out there! Now go cut the grass. Lol!

Groundhog Day is
Feb. 2: Well, today is Groundhog Day.
And you know what that means? It means I have found a blogging loophole.
For all you people out there -- like Whalen and Costantino and the Baroness -- who insist on telling me I need a new blog just because they don't want to read the old one for 19 straight weeks, I have discovered the answer to my problem.
Again, I reiterate, it is Groundhog Day. And if you saw the Bill Murray movie, you know that Groundhog Day is the same day, over and over and over again.
Therefor, because I am writing this blog today, it gives me carte blanche to leave it up here over and over and over and over again. Moreso than usual. Like. . .forever!
You think you got tired of seeing Phil Alu and Jon Adams at the top of this blog?
You are REALLY gonna hate The Groundhog!
* * * *
Just want to pass along good luck wishes to Nottingham junior Josh Lajeunesse, one of the many class acts and key contributors on the Nottingham state champion football team. r Josh recently discovered he needs serious shoulder surgery, which will keep him out of action for four months and unfortunately cause him to miss track season.
"Yeah, but I gotta get ready for football," he said.
Yeah ya do buddy, so good luck on the surgery No. 2 and hope all goes well!
* * * *
Speaking of Nottingham football, seems they are taking Fish Bowl 1 quite serious.
"It was nice to win a state football title," said one administrator. "But to say we won both the state title and the Fish Bowl, now that would be something!
We are keeping the administrator anonymous lest he incur the wrath of Coach Adams for linking the two together . .but we know that secretly, the Big Dawg feels the same way! lol
* * * *
Speaking of Fish Bowl, I just want to thank everyone for participating. I had hoped to get about 20-30 responses and just run them straight down in a list. But with the great feedback from everyone we got 88 responses (89 counting Donna Brihn's dog) and rand allowed us to turn it into the Fish Bowl.
What's amazing is as a collective group we couldn't pick a winner! 44-44. Wow, a township divided!
Anyway, thanks for taking part in the fun folks, and good luck to you and your team!

Oh, one other thing. We heard back from Phil Alu (there's that name again!) about his selection of Kyle Kaepernick as Super Bowl MVP.
"Holy crap! Now I know why my Fantasy Football team sucked all year. I was playing Kyle Kaepernck out of West Oak High School in Kalamazoo, Michigan all season and not Colin Kaepernick from the 49ers."
The sad think here is, Kyle Kaepernick even sucked for West Oak High School. And Kalamazoo football is weak!

I love my mother, but I'll never play her Super Bowl pool again. She asked me to buy five blocks, which I did. She said she would fill them in and mail it to me, which she did.
But rather than scatter my name in different blocks all over the sheet, she wrote it straight down in five blocks.
The result? In all five of my boxes I have Baltimore and nine. Nine! Are you freakin kidding me? So much for having a lot of different chances to win this baby, which of course, is the reason for multiple blocks.
Love ya mom!
Hate your pool!
* * * *
OK, that's it. I hope you like this blog, cuz you're gonna see it over and over and over and over and over. All that's missing is a picture of Ned Ryerson and the soundtrack to I Got You Babe!
* * * *
Oh, and one more thing. Does anyone out there actually watch all 8 hours of pre-game Super Bowl shows that are available? If so, then you could actually read this blog over and over and over and never get bored. Because you reeeallly need a life!

Happy New Year!
Yeah yeah, I know, it's an old year by now. But hey, I haven't written anything since the new year so it's a New Year for Fish Tales.
Hope everybody had a great holiday, hope everybody enjoyed the NFL playoffs, hope everybody has returned all their gifts that sucked and I just hope everbody is doin' great dogawnnit!
I don't really have a heck of a lot on my mind, but I'm getting yelled at again by people saying to put up a new blog. They don't neccessarily care what I have to say, they just get tired of seeing the same thing at the top of this spot for so long. Sorry Big Dawg, all the love is gone now, they all hate you now due to over-exposure. You have joined Phil Alu as a "stayed at the top of the blog too long" poster boy. lol.
* * * *
OK, let's start with the Super Bowl.
I mean, you never really hear much about it (insert *rolls eyes* here) so we'll talk about it!
You know what's interesting. And this, like so many other things, speaks to the popularity of the NFL. The Supe is the one championship in sports that the TV Networks don't fret about.
In baseball they would moan if the World Series match-up is the Kansas City Royals vs. the Milwaukee Brewers. "Oh God, those aren't big TV markets!"
It wasn't always like that for the Series. It was the big thing, everyone cared. Kids rushed home from school as fast as possible to catch the end of the games. But not anymore. Games that last til 12:30 a.m. don't help the cause these days, but that's only part of it.
But I digress.
Take the NBA. If they don't have the Lakers and/or the Celtics/Miami in the finals, its like a mad dash for a bridge to jump off of.
"No one will watch this. Ohhhhh noooo!"
And if it's the NHL's Stanley Cup Playoffs.... . .um, what's like, the big match-up for the NHL? OK, forget that one.
But football has no such worries. This game could be the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. the Seattle Seahawks and it wouldn't matter. 999 gazillion people would tune in anyway, just because it's like an unofficial national law.
"Gonna watch the Super Bowl?"
"How come, you don't like football?"
"I know, but it's the Super Bowl?"
I mean, that's basically the answer people give, and it's just understood. Oh yeah, it's the Super Bowl.
And by the way, when is the NFL gonna give folks a break and make this game on a Saturday so people at all the parties can recover on Sunday? . They can't be clinging to tradition or the game would still start at 1 o'clock, the halftime show would still be the Hokey-Fanokie high school marching band and the tickets could still be purchased by folks outside the 1 percent of the people with all the money in the world.
I'm sure someone did some research and concluded "Can't move it to Saturday, too costly."
Oh well, it's still the Super Bowl and we'll all watch it. Cuz hey, it's the Super Bowl!
* * * *
Speaking of the Super Bowl, I don't know who's going to win and I don't care. But if I have to make a pick, I'd pick the Ravens.
I dunno. But I had to make a pick so I picked the Ravens.
* * * *
Here's a classic basketball official story. I will not reveal the names to protect the innocent (and guilty) but it was pretty good stuff.
Three refs walked into a CVC girls game earlier this year. As they entered the gym, one of the head coaches says "Oh here they come, the three blind mice."
To which one of them -- who I am proud to say lives in Hamilton -- promptly responded by going "Yeah, but one of us can hear," and slammed the coach with a techncial foul before the game even started.
Now that's style!

I kind of lost a kindred spirit when Stan Musial passed away last week.
First off, Stan the Man was from Donora, Pa., and I had a roomate in college who hailed from Donora. His parents knew Musial and said he was the greatest guy ever.
Secondly, Musial got his 3,000th career hit on the day I was born.
Just think. . .two monumental occurrances on the same day!
Uh, OK. . one.
* * * *
So I have seen three of the movies nominated for the Oscars so far: Lincoln, Argo and Silver Linings Playbook. All good flicks, but, man, Daniel Day Lewis blew me away as Lincoln. Good stuff!
I find Lincoln to be so fascinating. The more I learn about him, the more I want to know about what made him tick.
As opposed to somone like, say, Kim Kardashian, who I don't know anything about and yet I want to know even less.

I would much rather see Amber Dietrich and Courtney Adams playing basketball this winter instead of texting me updates to tweet of Steinert and Hamilton girls' basketball games.
But they are injured and can't play and that stinks. But thanks girls, for contributing to the cause. You're the best!
And while Amber has been promoted to Fish4scores Director of Twitter Operations (with a 50 percent pay increase from her original salary of nothing), Courtney's work from mid-season on has promoted her to Assistant Director.
Please don't be late for the next staff meeting girls.
* * * *
I would also like to thank another Twitter contributor -- who I will only refer to as "Outcast of the People" -- but he can't seem to stay at the games for more tha none half -- and sometimes the decision wasn't his to leave. :)
* * * *
Check back later this week when we provide Super Bowl picks from the township's athetic community.
* * * *
OK, I leave you with this trivia question -- which I guarantee 80 percent of you won't be able to answer:
Who won today's Pro Bowl?
