    Wow - Fattore pinned himself!

    i will say this, i was standing behind the scorers table when this happened. all the officials that were there agreed with the call. i am not now, nor have i ever been an official, but i know many of them, and have very candid conversations with them.all of them said it was a good call, but a tough one to make. the kid handled it wish class and dignity, and deserves huge respect for that.

    Melloh and Mulkey

    no, he doesn't have to leave the building, he just cannot go onto the floor the rest of the tourney. i saw him back in the hallways, and told him that was a great call for a coach to get tossed out for. I cannot imagine another coach not losing his mind. in my opinion the right call would have been stalemate and go back to the center. that being said, bad calls are part of the sport, as with any other sport.

    Doing Questionable Things to Win a Match

    Head butting is such a tough call to make, some call it tough wrestling, others call it brutality. But whatever you call it, get used to it, you see it alot at the next level. As far as checking the oil, that is something that does need to be stopped. If for no other reason then it has to be both painful, and unsanitary to say the least.

    Trine Wrestling

    Congrats to the Trine wrestling team. They went over to the KNox College Chuck Porter duals, and went 4-0 on the day while giving up 12 points right off the bat by not having their 125, 133 guys there. A number of the guys went 4-0 on the day, and if memory serves, they only lost 4 matches that were actually wrestled, and those were all matches that were very close and could have gone either way.

    Doing Questionable Things to Win a Match

    Ok, I have seen "grasping" called and the accompanying hand signal and how the offending wrestler looked and must have felt as the ref called it. What is the hand signal by a ref for "checking the oil". Not sure why a kid would want to do this, but if it is seen, it should be a very graphic display by the ref so that everyone in the gym knows where you just put your fingers. The embarrassment alone might cause the kids to stop doing it.

    ben davis supper 16

    Will there be pie at the supper? if so, what kinds. I prefer a nice sugar cream, simple, yet elegant, and oh so yummy. Pecan is also a very nice pie, and you can never go wrong with cherry, or apple. As far as is it to be called supper, or dinner, my wife calls it whatever she tells me to make. This usually involves reservations.

    A Great History Lesson

    http://www.gutenberg.org/files/20483/20483-h/20483-h.htm#page071 EXPLOSIVE SHELLS The word "bomb" comes to us from the French, who derived it from the Latin. But the Romans got it originally from the Greek bombos, meaning a deep, hollow sound. "Bombard" is a derivation. Today bomb is pronounced "balm," but in the early days it was commonly pronounced "bum." The modern equivalent of the "bum" is an HE shell. The first recorded use of explosive shells was by the Venetians in 1376. Their bombs were hemispheres of stone or bronze, joined together with hoops and exploded by means of a primitive powder fuze. Shells filled with explosive or incendiary mixtures were standard for mortars, after 1550, but they did not come into general use for flat-trajectory weapons until early in the nineteenth century, whereafter the term "shell" gradually won out over "bomb." In any event, this projectile was one of the most effective ever used in the smoothbore against earthworks, buildings, and for general bombardment. A (p. 066) delayed action shell, diabolically timed to roll amongst the ranks with its fuze burning, was calculated to "disorder the stoutest men," since they could not know at what awful instant the bomb would burst. A bombshell was simply a hollow, cast-iron sphere. It had a single hole where the powder was funneled in?full, but not enough to pack too tightly when the fuze was driven in. Until the 1800's, the larger bombs were not always smooth spheres, but had either a projecting neck, or collar, for the fuze hole or a pair of rings at each side of the hole for easier handling (fig. 41). In later years, however, such projections were replaced by two "ears," little recesses beside the fuze hole. A pair of tongs (something like ice tongs) seized the shell by the ears and lifted it up to the gun bore. During most of the eighteenth century, shells were cast thicker at the base than at the fuze hole on the theory that they were (1) better able to resist the shock of firing from the cannon and (2) more likely to fall with the heavy part underneath, leaving the fuze uppermost and less liable to extinguishment. Müller scoffed at the idea of "choaking" a fuze, which, he said, burnt as well in water as in any other element. Furthermore, he preferred to use shells "everywhere equally thick, because they would then burst into a greater number of pieces." In later years, the shells were scored on the interior to ensure their breaking into many fragments. ROCKETS Today's rocket projectiles are not exactly new inventions. About the time of artillery's beginning, the military fireworker came into the business of providing pyrotechnic engines of war; later, his job included the spectacular fireworks that were set off in celebration of victory or peace. Artillery manuals of very early date include chapters on the manufacture and use of fireworks. But in making war rockets there was no marked progress until the late eighteenth century. About 1780, the British Army in India watched the Orientals use them; and within the next quarter century William Congreve, who set about the task of producing a rocket that would carry an incendiary or explosive charge as far as 2 miles, had achieved such promising results that English boats fired rocket salvos against Boulogne in 1806, The British Field Rocket Brigade used rockets effectively at Leipsic in 1812?the first time they appeared in European land warfare. They were used again 2 years later at Waterloo. The warheads of such rockets were cast iron, filled with black powder and fitted with percussion fuzes. They were fired from trough-like launching stands, which were adjustable for elevation. Rockets seem to have had a demoralizing effect upon untrained troops, and perhaps their use by the English against raw American levies at Bladenburg, in 1814, contributed to the rout of the United States forces and the capture of Washington. They also helped to inspire Francis Scott Key. Whether or not he understands the technical characteristics of the rocket, every schoolboy remembers the "rocket's red glare" of the National Anthem, wherein Key recorded his eyewitness account of the bombardment of Fort McHenry. The U. S. Army in Mexico (1847) included a rocket battery, and, indeed, war rockets were an important part of artillery resources until the rapid progress of gunnery in the latter 1800's made them obsolescent.
