The best thing to say about the Penguins involvement in the prospect showcase in Buffalo is that, well, it’s over and no one got hurt. The Pittsburgh contingent lost 10-2 on Monday to the Sabres team — one that rested two of their top players. One of the few bright spots for the Penguins was defenseman Calen Addison, who stood out wearing a Pens jersey for the first time. ”He’s quick, he’s small, but he’s very, very crafty. He’s going to utilize his body in one-on-one battles,” Wilkes-Barre/Scranton head coach Clark Donatelli said. “He’s got a really good stick and a lot of skill. He’s going to be a fine player going forward. We’re very, very impressed with him.” Addison, not coincidentally,

          Raiders bring Bryant back less than 2 weeks after release      Cache   Translate Page      

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Two days after their passing game went flat in the second half of a season-opening loss, the Oakland Raiders have brought back wide receiver Martavis Bryant.

Bryant, who was with the Raiders in training camp after being acquired in a trade from Pittsburgh before getting released on the final day of roster cutdowns, signed a one-year contract and rejoined the team for practice Wednesday.

Coach Jon Gruden said it's possible Bryant could play Sunday in Denver.

The Raiders need all the help they can get after their offense sputtered and eventually stalled in a 33-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Quarterback Derek Carr passed for 303 yards and one touchdown but most of that came in the first half.

Brees had nothing but good things to say about the Browns rookie quarterback. Watch video

BEREA, Ohio -- The Browns are preparing for the Saints on Sunday afternoon. Drew Brees spoke to the local media here on Wednesday and he had high praise for rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield.

Brees said Baker Mayfield "can be a lot better than me."

Mary Kay Cabot and I talked about that following practice and availability on Wednesday. We also talked about Tyrod Taylor looking to bounce back following a poor performance Sunday against Pittsburgh and Josh Gordon's role. Then we talked about Emmanuel Ogbah not being ruled out just yet.

          Emmanuel Ogbah isn't ruled out against the Saints just yet      Cache   Translate Page      

Ogbah suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Steelers.

BEREA, Ohio -- Things can change quickly in the NFL. Two days ago, it didn't sound great for Emmanuel Ogbah with head coach Hue Jackson saying he may miss time with an ankle injury.

Ogbah, who was seen on Monday wearing a walking boot, missed practice on Wednesday, but Jackson sounded a little more optimistic.

"Not going to rule him out, but we will see how he progresses during the week," he said.

Ogbah suffered the injury to his left ankle on the final play of the first quarter on Sunday against the Steelers. He came back into the game but played just 27 snaps, 32 percent of the team's defensive plays.

The reason for the optimism is that, upon further testing, it wasn't a high ankle sprain for Ogbah, the kind that could cost a player multiple weeks and continue to impact performance for weeks to come.

Pump the brakes a little bit on that optimism, though. We should probably wait until Ogbah gets back on the practice field before penciling him in to play against the Saints.

The Browns were down another defender on Wednesday, too. Linebacker Christian Kirksey was limited with injuries to his shoulder and ankle. Jackson didn't seem worried about Kirksey's ability to play Sunday. 

It wasn't all bad news. Linebacker James Burgess, who was unable to practice last week and missed Sunday's game against Pittsburgh with a concussion, was full-go on Wednesday. So was left tackle Desmond Harrison, listed with a shoulder injury.

Cornerback E.J. Gaines, working his way back from a knee sprain, was also limited.

On the Saints side of things wide receivers Michael Thomas (illness) and Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) did not practice, nor did defensive tackle Tyeler Davison (foot). Guard Andrus Peat (ankle) was limited. Peat was inactive on Sunday against the Buccaneers.


          Pope Francis Calls Meeting With Bishops to Address Sexual Abuse Crisis      Cache   Translate Page      

Pope Francis has called a meeting of Catholic bishops next year in Rome to address sexual abuse by priests. The greatest crisis of Francis’ papacy was kicked off by revelations of allegations that the influential Cardinal Theodore McCarrick had abused children. The scandal was escalated further when Carlo Maria Viganò, the former Vatican ambassador to the United States and a conservative opponent of Francis, wrote a letter in which he alleged that Francis’ still-living predecessor, Benedict XVI, had placed sanctions on McCarrick that Francis then lifted.

Francis has since been evasive on whether Viagno’s charges were true, false, or a mixture of both, never directly addressing the claims and at one point even challenging journalists to find out for themselves. The crisis has continued to expand, with a grand jury report in Pennsylvania detailing more than 1,000 credible accusations of sexual abuse committed by more than 300 priests and a new investigation of New York’s dioceses by the state attorney general.

McCarrick’s predecessor as archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, plans to discuss his resignation with Francis, the New York Times reported. Wuerl was archbishop of Pittsburgh when some of the abuse detailed in the grand jury report occurred and had allowed a priest accused of abuse to resign and receive a pension, while also working to push out some accused priests.

“The Holy Father, after hearing the Council of Cardinals, convened a meeting with the presidents of the Episcopal Conferences of all the world to speak about the prevention of abuse of minors and vulnerable adults,” Paloma García Ovejero, a Vatican press official, said in a briefing Wednesday. The College of Cardinals said the meetings would happen in February and that during their just-concluded meeting with Francis, the council “reflected extensively together with the Holy Father on the theme of abuse.”

Adrian Peterson trains in Houston during the offseason Marshawn Lynch Jersey (http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/marshawn-lynch-jersey-cheap) , even opening a megagym in his adopted hometown a couple of years ago. So it’s no surprise the star running back would love to play his 12th season in Houston. Peterson, 33, mentioned the Texans and four other teams as possible fits in a recent appearance on ESPN’s NFL Live. “You know obviously I’ve mentioned Houston a couple of times,” Peterson said. “I feel like Green Bay wouldn’t be a bad look as well. Carolina. There’s some options out there. You know Miami. Down there in [Los Angeles]. That would be a nice look, too, with Todd Gurley. You see around the league they have a two-back system. Guys are not really not pounding the ball 20, 30 times a game, so I think that leaves the door open for a couple of opportunities for me.” Peterson also recently said he would be open to a return to New Orleans. Peterson has posted his workout videos, hoping teams take notice. In truth Durham Smythe Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/durham-smythe-jersey-cheap) , Peterson likely would have interest in any team that shows interest in him. Drew Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints held off Carolina’s late comeback bid to seal a 31-26 victory in their NFC wild-card game on Sunday. The Panthers had a first down on the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a required 10-second runoff left 22 seconds on the clock. After an incompletion in the end zone on third down, Vonn Bell sacked Newton on a safety blitz, ensuring the Saints (12-5) swept all three meetings with Carolina (11-6) this season, in addition to winning their first playoff game in four seasons. Brees’ touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill. Fullback Zach line and running back Alvin Kamara each ran for short touchdowns. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Blake Bortles put together one decent drive all day, doing as much with his legs as his arm Malcolm Mitchell Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/malcolm-mitchell-jersey-cheap) , and the defensive-minded Jacksonville Jaguars eked out an ugly and sometimes unwatchable 10-3 victory against the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game Sunday. In the postseason for the first time since January 2008, the third-seeded Jaguars (11-6) advanced to play at No. 2 seed Pittsburgh next week. The sixth-seeded Bills (9-8) will head home after ending the longest, current playoff drought in North American professional sports. Bortles was a big reason Jacksonville won the game and a big reason it was so close. This was far from a passing clinic. It was more like a painful exercise in overcoming poor passing. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Marcus Mariota led Tennessee to three second-half touchdowns, incredibly throwing one of his TD passes to himself , and the Titans rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 on Saturday for their first playoff win in 14 years. Mariota threw for 205 yards and two scores, including the 22-yard go-ahead strike to Eric Decker with just over six minutes left that ushered the Titans into the divisional round of the playoffs. They’ll head to New England or Pittsburgh next week. Derrick Henry had a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for Tennessee (10-7), while a defense that was fileted by Alex Smith and the Chiefs (10-7) during the first half pitched a shutout in the second half – dooming the Kansas City franchise to another humiliating postseason defeat. LOS ANGELES (AP) – Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons showed the upstart Los Angeles Rams what playoff poise is all about. Ryan passed for 218 yards and hit Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:48 to play, and the defending NFC champion Falcons advanced from the wild-card round with a methodical 26-13 victory over the Rams on Saturday night. Devonta Freeman rushed for an early score and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals for the Falcons (11-6) Brandon Coleman Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/brandon-coleman-jersey-cheap) , who spoiled the Rams’ first playoff game in 13 years while showing off the postseason poise they earned from last season’s journey to the Super Bowl. Atlanta never trailed at the Coliseum while winning playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Falcons advanced to face the top-seeded Eagles on Saturday in Philadelphia. NBA LOS ANGELES (AP) – Brandon Ingram had 20 points and seven assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 132-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Julius Randle had 15 points and nine rebounds in this sixth straight start, while Lonzo Ball finished with 13 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. Los Angeles led by as many as 26 points – its biggest margin this season – and enjoyed a strong shooting night. The Lakers made 55.8 percent of their field goals, and shot 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Even free throws went in for the Lakers, who came into Sunday as the worst team in the league in that category. Los Angeles made 20 of 25. COLLEGE BASKETBALL COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Keita Bates-Diop scored a career-high 32 points, and Ohio State stunned No. 1 Michigan State 80-64 on Sunday. The overachieving Buckeyes put together an electrifying 12-0 run to finish the first half and kept their foot on the gas to give first-year coach Chris Holtmann a signature win. Ohio State (13-4, 4-0 Big Ten) won for its third straight in taking down the best team it is likely to see this season. The mistake-prone Spartans (15-2 Art Shell Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/art-shell-jersey-cheap) , 3-1) lost for the first time in the last 15 games, dating back to a seven-point loss to then-No. 1 Duke on Nov. 14. GOLF KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) – A new year brought out the best in Dustin Johnson, who powered his way to an 8-under 65 and an eight-shot victory in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. In a field that featured the top five players in the world, Johnson made a strong opening statement that a No. 1 ranking he has held for nearly a year might be difficult to take away. Johnson stretched a two-shot lead to six shots at the turn, then delivered the biggest moment of the week with a drive on the par-4 12th hole that stopped 6 inches from the cup for a tap-in eagle. He also drove the par-4 14th hole. He finished at 24-under 268. The eight-shot margin of victory was his largest ever, and it was one short of the tournament record set by David Duval since this event moved to Kapalua in 1999. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016. Football Jerseys Wholesale (http://www.officialusafootballs.com)

          Cardinal Wuerl to ask pope to accept his resignation      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington D.C., Sep 12, 2018 / 04:50 pm (CNA).- An archdiocesan spokesman has confirmed that Cardinal Donald Wuerl will soon ask Pope Francis to accept his resignation as the Archbishop of Washington, D.C.

In a Sept. 11 letter to priests, Wuerl said that he would soon meet with the pope to discuss his future, but did not state at the time that he would ask the pope to allow him to resign.

The text of that letter has been posted on the website of the archdiocesan magazine.

A spokesman for Wuerl confirmed to CNA Sept. 12 that, at their next meeting, the cardinal intends to formally ask Pope Francis to allow him to step down. 

“Cardinal Wuerl understands that healing from the abuse crisis requires a new beginning and this includes new leadership for the Archdiocese of Washington,” the spokesman said.

As required by canon law, Wuerl originally submitted his resignation on Nov. 12, 2015, after turning 75 years old.

After Wuerl made a trip to Rome in late August, media reports said that Pope Francis had instructed the cardinal to return to Washington and consult with his clergy about the best way forward for him and the archdiocese.

In a meeting with priests held Labor Day, Wuerl said he would be taking time to pray and reflect on how best to proceed.

The cardinal has been the subject of considerable criticism in recent months. As the successor to Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, Wuerl has faced questions about his knowledge of sexual abuse allegations made against McCarrick, which were first reported to the public June 20.

Following the release of a Pennsylvania grand jury report at the end of July, Wuerl’s record as Bishop of Pittsburgh, where he served from 1988 until 2006, came under close scrutiny. Some cases in the report raised concerns that Wuerl had allowed priests accused of abuse to remain in ministry after allegations had been made.

Although he has faced calls to step down and several recent demonstrations outside his residence, it has been widely believed that Wuerl hoped to remain in his position at least until the general session of the U.S. bishops’ conference in November. That session is expected to focus on the fallout of the recent sexual abuse crises, and Wuerl was said to want to play and active part in helping the Church respond.

Speculation will now turn to the candidates to succeed him in Washington. The Archdiocese of Washington is a highly visible and sensitive post, requiring political and ecclesial acumen. In the wake of the McCarrick scandals, Wuerl’s successor will be expected to lead reform initiatives and restore trust in archdiocesan leadership.

Sources in Rome have told CNA that on his recent visit, Cardinal Wuerl presented several suggestions for his eventual replacement in Washington. While the list remains confidential, several curial sources told CNA that one bishop named was Archbishop Bernard Hebda, the Archbishop of St. Paul-Minneapolis.

Hebda arrived in Minneapolis as an emergency apostolic administrator in 2015 following the resignation of Archbishop Nienstedt, who was himself accused of sexual misconduct. At the same time, Hebda served as the coadjutor Archbishop of Newark and had been slated to succeed Archbishop John Myers.

While in Newark, Hedba gained a reputation as a reformer with a close interest in archdiocesan affairs, conducting unannounced visits to priests and parishes, and choosing to live on the campus of Seton Hall University where the archdiocesan seminary is housed.

Following his arrival in Minneapolis, Hebda brought the archdiocese through a protracted bankruptcy process, following multiple suits brought against it for cases of sexual abuse.

The Archdiocese of Washington told CNA that no firm date had been agreed for Cardinal Wuerl to meet with Pope Francis, adding that the meeting would take place as soon as is convenient for the pope.


          Pittsburgh bishop announces Year of Repentance      Cache   Translate Page      

Pittsburgh, Pa., Sep 12, 2018 / 11:01 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In the wake of recent sex abuse scandals, Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh has announced a Year of Repentance in the diocese.

He has asked all the clerics to fast and pray for the purification of the Church, and invited all Catholics to join the initiative.

“Faced with the sinful actions of the members of our own ranks of the clergy, who are called to manifest the example of Christ, we feel both shame and sorrow, and are reminded of our own sinfulness and the need for mercy,” Bishop Zubik wrote in a Sept. 10 letter to the clerics and seminarians of the diocese.

“I invite the faithful to join with the clergy as they desire in our acts of prayer and penance. The year is open to individuals to go beyond what I am requesting as we continue to pray that the Lord come to our aid.”

The Year of Repentance will include the observance of the Ember Days, which were traditionally days of fast and abstinence.

Bishop Zubik has asked that on each of the 12 Ember Days in the coming year, clerics of the Diocese of Pittsburgh fast, abstain from meat, and make a Holy Hour.

Ember Days are tied to the seasons of the year, and are held on the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of four weeks: the third week of September, the third week of Advent, the first week of Lent, and the octave of Pentecost.

In the Pittsburgh diocese's Year of Repentance, the Ember Days fall Sept. 19, 21, and 22, 2018, Dec. 19, 21, 22, 2018, March 13, 15, 16, 2019, and June 12, 14, 15, 2019.

Bishop Zubik will inaugurate the Year of Repentance Sept. 23 with Vespers and a Holy Hour at the cathedral.

The year will close with a Mass for the Assumption Aug. 15, 2019 to serve “as a sign of hope and healing for victims and for renewal in the Church through the intercession of Mary.”

In his letter, Bishop Zubik also encouraged the clerics of Pittsburgh to consider restoring the recitation of the prayer to St. Michael after all Masses.

Its Monday and TSN basketball analyst Jack Armstrong starts the week with his five thoughts on the NBA including a struggling Raptors defence, a pair of impressive rookie point guards in the Magics Elfrid Payton, Jr. Cheap Timberwolves Jerseys . and Shabazz Napier of the Heat, a potential problem with the NBAs new replay centre and James Johnson of the Raptors. 1. RAPTORS D: Its just not good at all right now and its a bad sign when Dwane Casey has to continually harp on it. Players are trying to just win on talent alone and that will get you beat on a lot of nights. A potentially dangerous character flaw, this team has a switch mentality, which we saw creeping in last March when they seem to think they can cruise their way through certain parts of games and pick it up when they feel like it, instead of having winning habits. Theyve given up over 101 PPG on 49 FG% and 44 3P%. If this team wants to be good to very good, it better realize that you have to respect your opponent and the game and stop trying to take shortcuts to success. It dont come easy. You got earn it and that means a much higher price has to be paid on D. Its nothing to do with schemes or Xs and Os. Do you want to lay it on the line all the time or not? Yes, I know they had free throw issues against the Heat, but weve all seen the defence in the first three games. Its not going to cut it and its time to decide how committed they really want to be. The good news is, this is all very correctable, but winning is really hard to do and you cant ever lose sight of that. Enough said. 2. ELFRID PAYTON (Magic): I love his game and potential. Hes long and athletic with terrific defensive range. Payton changes speeds and can score and create for others in the lane. Hes got good size and, as he fills out and figures it out, will be a good one. I can see why scouts were intrigued by him. Hes won me over. 3. SHABAZZ NAPIER (Heat): Hes going to be a nice back-up point guard for his squad. Napier is more of a pure lead guard than Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers. He makes the smart play and makes others better. Hes a winner and plays the game right and really hard. Napier was a good late first-round pick. 4. NBA REPLAY CENTRE: I really like the concept and it will help officials get it right more and more and thats a good thing. But my one observation is that, during a review, both teams are going to get an unofficial timeout and its going to make games longer. Maybe the NBA can consider a way to charge teams with a timeout in these instances or just reduce the number of timeouts, altogether. If not, were looking at longer games and thats not good for anyone. 5. JAMES JOHNSON (Raptors): Hes been steady so far for the Raps by playing under control on the offensive end, while being an energetic force on defence. If he keeps this up, hes going to start taking some minutes from teammates. He makes plays with many of them being impactful ones. Thats a good thing and will earn him more run.

When the next inning rolled around Wednesday, though, Nationals manager Matt Williams sent Strasburg to the mound to face the top of the Dodgers order in what would become a 3-2 victory for Washington, the first time this season the No.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau found the perfect way to celebrate their new contract extensions. Thornton scored his second goal of the game with 1:30 remaining in overtime to lead the San Jose Sharks to their sixth straight win, 3-2 over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. Marleau also scored as the two longtime Sharks shined one day after signing three-year deals that will keep them in San Jose through the 2016-17 season. "For me and Patty both to score, its a great night for us," Thornton said. Antti Niemi made 20 saves and Joe Pavelski and Matt Irwin had two assists apiece as the Sharks overcame a 2-0 deficit to get their third six-game winning streak of the season. "Theyre our guys, and we need them when were down," Irwin said. "Jumbo got us to within one and Patty tied it up and obviously Jumbo won it in overtime. Theyre our guys. Its just kind of ironic what happened." Matt Cooke and Keith Ballard scored for the Wild, who built an early lead on the opener of a four-game road trip but still lost for the ninth time in their past 10 trips to San Jose. Darcy Kuemper made 29 saves as Minnesota lost for just the fourth time in 12 games this month. "We got a point against a good team in a tough building to play," Ballard said. "For the most part we played a fairly solid game. We werent the best at times. But we hung in there and even after they got those two quick goals, I thought we responded pretty well. We just couldnt find the time to get the third one tonight." Thornton and Pavelski combined on the game-winning play by causing a turnover at the blue line. Pavelski then fed Thornton, who beat Kuemper with a wrist shot from the top of the circle to end it with his ninth career overtime goal and first since Nov. 26, 2008, against Chicago. Pavelski assisted on both of Thorntons goals in a bit of a role reversal after Thornton helped set up many of his 19 goals in the previous 21 games. "Ive been teelling Pav, Youve been scoring too much. Wholesale Timberwolves Jerseys. Start passing the puck. And he finally listened," Thornton said. "I dont too often, but Pav just made two good plays and luckily I put them in." The Wild struck first on a nifty play by Cooke midway through the first period. Cooke deflected Thorntons cross-ice pass to Brad Stuart in the neutral zone. Cooke then beat Stuart to the loose puck and skated in on Niemi before beating him with a forehand for his eighth goal. They added onto the lead early in the second when Mikael Granlund fed Ballard for a one-timer that beat Niemi. It was Ballards first goal since Oct. 6, 2011, for Vancouver against Pittsburgh, ending a drought of 114 games without a goal. But that was all the Wild would get as they managed just 12 shots in the final 39-plus minutes. They spent much of the game on the defensive as they won just 18 of 59 faceoffs. "We lost the extra point because of the face-off circle tonight," coach Mike Yeo said. "We spent the entire night chasing and its inevitable that they will put you on your heels and give them some momentum. We never started with the puck. That was the big story." Minnesota dominated the opening half of the second period, limiting San Jose to one shot in the first 11-plus minutes before Thornton and Marleau delivered a day after getting their new contracts. Thornton struck first when Pavelski fed him for a one-timer that he knocked past Kuemper on a knuckler. Just 49 seconds later, Marleau scored his 22nd of the season when Tommy Wingels fanned on the original shot but still managed to get the puck to Marleau, who deflected it past Kuemper to tie the game. NOTES: Thornton has 40 career multigoal games. ... Minnesota F Jason Pominville got his 500th career point with an assist on Ballards goal. ... San Jose juggled its top two lines the second half of the game with Matt Nieto playing with Thornton and Pavelski and Brent Burns moving to a wing with Marleau and Wingels.

          PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows      Cache   Translate Page      
PITTSBURGH -- The steady stream of bold-faced names heading to injured reserve shows no signs of abating for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Authentic Raptors Jerseys . Thankfully for the Penguins, neither is Sidney Crosby. Crosbys 19th goal of the season broke a tie with just over 6 minutes remaining and Pittsburgh edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 on Monday night for their fourth straight victory. Chris Conner and Brandon Sutter also scored for the Penguins, who were playing without a number of regulars, including forward Evgeni Malkin. "We keep finding ways," Crosby said. "A lot has to do with the way the (new guys) are playing." Pittsburgh took the ice with a handful of players who have spent the majority of the season at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League and only one defenceman -- Matt Niskanen -- with more than one year of NHL experience. It hardly mattered on a night the Penguins kept the speedy Maple Leafs in check. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots for Pittsburgh to improve to 27-3 in his past 30 home starts. Pittsburgh has won four straight and nine of 10. "Its a pretty unique situation," Niskanen said. "One rookie and five young guys playing. ... These guys have been coming up and playing with confidence and doing a good job. Thats exciting for the organization." Morgan Rielly scored the first goal of his career for the Maple Leafs. Jonathan Bernier made 28 saves, but couldnt stop Toronto from losing for the fourth time in its past five games. "We just werent sharp," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. The Penguins have a firm grip on the top of the Metropolitan Division despite a series of injuries to high-profile players. Kris Letang joined fellow defenceman Brooks Orpik (concussion), Paul Martin (broken leg) and Rob Scuderi (broken ankle) on the IR Monday with an upper-body injury of his own, forcing coach Dan Bylsma to get creative with his pairings. Rookie Philip Samuelsson, whose father Ulf won a pair of Stanley Cups with the Penguins in the early 1990s, made his NHL debut against the Maple Leafs. The younger Samuelsson received a quick lesson from his teammates on the level of expectation from Brian Dumoulin, playing in just the second game of his career. Dumoulin helped give the Penguins a quick 1-0 lead, collecting the puck near the point then firing it on net, allowing Conner to jab it by Bernier for his third goal of the season 39 seconds into the game. The tally seemed to embolden Pittsburgh, which controlled play for long stretches in the first period, keeping Bernier busy while the defence did a fine job of neutralizing Torontos speedy counterattack. The Maple Leafs tied it 6:03 into the second as Rielly, the fifth overall pick in the 2012 draft, skated through the Pittsburgh zone and beat Fleury over the goaltenders right shoulder for the highly regarded defencemans first career goal. The power-play score ended the Penguins streak of 18 consecutive penalty kills, though the score had less to do with any kind of breakdown and more to do with Riellys wicked wrist shot. Toronto kept the pressure on well into the third period, but Pittsburgh regained control after killing off an illegal check to the head penalty on Robert Bortuzzo, who levelled Maple Leaf forward Jerry DAmigo during a collision near centre ice. The 6-foot-4 defenceman, who has struggled to crack the lineup, shook off the penalty and even picked up his first point of the season on Crosbys winner. The Maple Leafs won the draw deep in their zone but Bortuzzo knocked down the clearing attempt then fed the puck up the wall to Pascal Dupuis, who slipped a quick pass to Crosby between the circles. "There was a lot of room there," Crosby said. "(Dupuis) made a great pass on my tape and I found the back of the net. Sutters short-handed empty-net goal with 3 seconds left sealed it and the Penguins remained hot while the Maple Leafs couldnt back up a promising 7-3 romp over defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago on Saturday night. "We were a little inconsistent, but we did do some good things," Torontos Dion Phaneuf said. "Weve got to capitalize on the power play and do some things better." NOTES: Toronto finished 1 of 5 on the power play. ... The Penguins are 13-1 when leading after the first period. ... Pittsburgh has won eight straight games at Consol Energy Center. ... The Maple Leafs begin a three-game homestand on Tuesday against Florida. ... Pittsburgh forward Jason Megna left with a lower body injury and did not return. He is not expected to play Wednesday when the Penguins face the Rangers in New York. Jakob Poeltl Jersey . The Mavericks avoided a season sweep by the Nuggets, who ran away with a win in Denver two weeks ago to hand Dallas its longest losing streak at three games. Dallas (42-28) got a boost in the playoff race when Miami rallied from seven down in the last 3 1/2 minutes to beat Memphis 91-86 Friday night. Serge Ibaka Jersey . Those who impressed in each of the three events were asked to attend the main CFL Combine which begins Friday in Toronto. http://www.cheapraptorsjerseyschina.com/...ry-jersey/ . -- Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the sideline as the Packers make their push for a perfect regular season.NEW YORK -- Aaron Hill was ready to wait all night to get this game in. Hill had a two-run homer wiped out by a rain storm that postponed the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets in the fourth inning on Friday night after a delay of 2 hours, 11 minutes. "To get a win ... yeah," Hill said. "We need a few of those." The game will be made up as part of a single-admission doubleheader on Sunday. The first game will start at 1:10 p.m. Manager Kirk Gibson said the Diamondbacks, who are in last place in the NL West at 18-31, will likely call up a pitcher for the makeup start Sunday. The Mets will go with Daisuke Matsuzaka in the second game of the traditional twinbill. Rafael Montero will make his regularly scheduled start in the opener against Bronson Arroyo. Matsuzaka has been pitching out of the bullpen this season but the converted starter doesnt see going deep into the game as a problem. "I pitched yesterday but just one inning, did not throw too many pitches," Matsuzaka said through a translator. "I do not think 100 pitches should be a problem" The Diamondbacks are flying back to Arizona after the game Sunday. They host the San Diego Padres on Monday night but the doubleheader was the only option for the teams that do not meet again this season. They have no common days off the rest of the way. "Id rather stay," and wait it out, Gibson said, "but I can see it was raining." Last seasons series between the teams at Citi Field was also plagued by rain. "Good old New York," Hill said. Hill gave Arizona the lead in the second inning with a homer off Bartolo Colon that just cleared the fence in left field. Rookie Chase Anderson allowed one hit and a walk in his third big league start for the Diamondbacks. Dark clouds rolled in during the bottom of the third inning and the public address announcer made a request for fans sitting in exposed areas to move to protected areas. After Colon pitched a perfect fourth, thhe grounds crew brought out the tarp and rain began to fall shortly after. C.J. Miles Jersey. The Mets swept the Diamondbacks in a three-game series in Arizona April 14-16, but the teams are in very different places now. The Mets are 6-14 in May while the D-backs are 9-9 even though they were just dropped three straight at St. Louis. Hill connected on a two-seam fastball from Colon after Miguel Montero led off with a nubber up the third base line for a hit. Mets manager Terry Collins before the game talked about how Colon, who turns 41 Saturday, needs to use his off-speed pitches more to be effective. He started out Hill with a slider then threw him four straight two-seamers. Colon has had an up and down start to his first year in New York. He gave up two runs in eight innings in his previous start, a win over Washington, but yielded seven runs in 5 2-3 innings against the Yankees five days earlier. He entered 3-5 with a 5.34 ERA. Anderson gave up a two-out single to David Wright in the first and walked former Diamondbacks outfielder Chris Young leading off the second. Wilmer Flores grounded into a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning and Anderson was perfect in the third. "I felt like I was starting to roll after that third inning," Anderson said. "If we went to the fourth, fifth, I felt pretty good." NOTES: Mets C Travis dArnaud (concussion) took BP on the field. His next step before getting MLB doctors approval is catching a bullpen session. When he is finally cleared to play in games, Collins thinks dArnaud will need 8-10 rehab at-bats. ... Diamondbacks RHP J.J. Putz (forearm strain) has been playing long toss and is nearing a bullpen session, Gibson says there is no timetable yet for his return. ... Gibson was watching on a TV in his office his son Cam play in the Big Ten baseball tournament. Cam had four hits in a win over Illinois. ...

LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th NHL goal, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Blaine Gabbert Jersey . It was the 22nd career shutout and third this season for Mason, who stopped 33 shots in a 5-0 win against Detroit last Tuesday after getting pulled by coach Craig Berube in two of his previous three starts. Mason got a break with less than 3 1/2 minutes left, when Justin Williams tried a wraparound and hit the left post. Claude Giroux added his 17th goal on a power play with 1:58 left, converting a cross-ice pass at the left of the crease from Scott Hartnell while Matt Greene was serving an interference penalty. The Flyers have scored a power-play goal in six straight games. The Kings have scored fewer than three goals in 16 of 20 games since their 25-8-4 start, and are 5-13-2 during that stretch with five shutout losses. They have only three goals in their past six games combined, all of them by Anze Kopitar. The Flyers had managed only five shots on net before Simmonds got his 18th goal at 7:48 of the first period. Jonathan Quick, who faced only 13 shots, overplayed Vincent Lecavalier at the right of the crease along with Kings defenceman Jake Muzzin following a turnover by the Kings in their zone, and Simmonds slammed the puck into a wide-open net. The Kings Robyn Regehr played in his 1,000th NHL regular-season game, becoming the 98th defenceman in NHL history to reach that plateau, and the club marked the occasion with a pregame ceremony. Regehrs first game was Oct. 28, 1999, with the Calgary Flames at Ottawa. Among those taking part in Saturdays ceremony were former Calgary teammate Craig Conroy and Regehrs grandmother, who wore a Flames jersey with his old No. 28. It was the first meeting between the Kings and Flyers since Oct. 15, 2011, when Los Angeles won 3-2. Saturday also was a reunion for Kings centre Jeff Carter, whom the Flyers traded to Columbus on June 23, 2011 -- the same day they dealt Richards to Los Angeles. Eight months later, the Kings acquired Richards by sending Jack Johnson to the Blue Jackets. Carter and Richards led Los Angeles to its first Stanley Cup title in 2012, two years after helping the Flyers get to the finals. NOTES: Richards has one goal in his past 32 games, and that one came on the power play. Carter has no goals in his past six games, following a four-game goal streak. ... Kings C Colin Fraser is one of seven forwards in the league to have played 30 or more games this season without scoring a goal -- and average at least nine minutes of ice time. ... The Kings are 19-3-0 when scoring more than two goals. ... Among the numerous Kings-Flyers connections is fan favourite Ian Laperriere, who played eight-plus seasons with Los Angeles and is now an assistant coach with Philadelphia. Dion Lewis Jersey . As TSN reported Thursday, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is under intense pressure from the federal government to focus drug testing on athletes who compete in international events representing Canada. Since funding for the tests has been frozen and the cost of testing can eclipse $1,000 per test, university athletes in a number of sports are being tested less often. Malcolm Butler Titans Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-5...ns-Jersey/ . Murray, the defending champion and No. 3 seed, claimed his first match win at Queens in 2005 and went on to win the Wimbledon warmup three times. But he failed to take advantage of eight set points after leading the first-set tiebreaker 6-2, and Stepanek survived to convert with his second set point. The Bruins and Stars hooked up for a blockbuster summer trade, a seven-player deal, headlined by a third-year scoring forward who was the second overall pick in the 2010 Draft. Numbers Game breaks down the deal sending Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to Dallas for a package of players including Loui Eriksson and three prospects. The Stars Get: C/RW Tyler Seguin, C/RW Rich Peverley and D Ryan Button. Seguin, 21, was maligned for his 2013 playoff performance, when he scored one goal in 22 games, yet has 45 goals and 99 points over the last two seasons. His 36 even-strength goals over the last two years is tied for 14th. Despite that production, at that age, the Bruins were definitely not satisfied with Seguin and once his name had appeared in trade rumours, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told the Boston Globe that he hoped it would serve as a wake-up call, that Seguin would, "Become more of a professional." Chiarelli continued, "And you know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds. I know he got criticized for playing on the periphery and all that stuff. He did. Hes got to commit to being a professional and focusing on the game." When Seguin is focused on the game, hes a dynamic offensive talent, with the speed and shot to be among the most dangerous offensive players in the league. Like many of the Bruins top players, Seguin dominated in terms of puck possession over the last two seasons. Moving to Dallas, Seguin figures to pair with Jamie Benn on the Stars top line. Seguin has played right wing for the vast majority of his time in Boston, so an opportunity to play in the middle will be different. He played centre in junior, but hasnt yet had that responsibility in the NHL. Leading right wing candidates could be first-round pick Valeri Nichushkin, veterans Ray Whitney or Erik Cole or perhaps another addition to the Stars roster this summer. Seguin also figures to see a boost in ice time. He played just under 17 minutes per game over the past two seasons in Boston, but could easily see that push closer to 20 minutes per game with the Stars. Seguins six-year, $34-million contract extension kicks in this season, a $5.75-million cap hit per season. If hes a number one centre, scoring 70-plus points per season, thats a very reasonable return on investment. If he becomes better than a point-per-game guy, then thats a big win for Big D. Peverley turns 31 next week and is coming off a poor season in which he, and Bostons third line in general, struggled. Since being picked up on waivers by Atlanta, from Nashville, in 2008-2009, Peverley has 191 points in 307 games (a pace of 51 points per 82 games), but managed just 18 points in 47 games last season thanks, in part, to a career-low shooting percentage of 6.3% (his 5v5 on-ice shooting percentage was an abysmal, and unlucky, 4.63%). Where Peverley remains excellent, is in the faceoff circle, as hes won at least 55.0% of his draws in each of the last four seasons, including 58.4% last season, which ranked ninth among players with at least 200 face-offs in 2013. With the Stars, Peverley will fit into a second-line centre role, where he will be expected to contribute more offensively. The opportunity will certainly be there for Peverley to bounce back. Part of the incentive for Boston to move Peverley is that his contract still has two years, at a cap hit of $3.25-million per season, remaining. If he was producing, that would be one thing, but for a Bruins team without huge cap room, it made sense to include Peverleys contract in order to gain more financial flexibility heading into free agency. Ryan Button is only 22, but has spent two pro seasons splitting time between the AHL and ECHL, so his inclusion in the deal is more about keeping room on the Bruins reserve list than anything else. Perhaps Button gets some regular work in the AHL with Texas but, barring a sudden turnaround in his new locale, hes not going to be a factor when evaluating this trade. Dallas took a swing for the fences, going after a young player who has already shown that he can score in the NHL. If Seguin pans out as a first line scoring centre -- and he should -- then it will be hard to argue that they didnt get what they wanted out of the deal. The Bruins Get: LW/RW Loui Eriksson, RW Reilly Smith, D Joe Morrow and RW Matt Fraser. Eriksson, who turns 28 in a couple weeks, haas been a strong two-way player and regarded as underrated for so long that hes probably closer to properly rated now. Bennie Logan Titans Jersey. Hes able to play both wings, in all situations, and has logged just under 20 minutes per game for the Stars over the last five seasons, a time during which hes scored 130 goals, the same as Alex Burrows, two more than Patrick Kane and two fewer than Martin St. Louis. With vacancies abound on right wing in Boston (in addition to Seguin and Peverley departing, Jaromir Jagr and Nathan Horton are free agents), Eriksson is likely to move into a spot alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, one of the leagues most formidable two-way lines. Erikssons contract runs for three more seasons and while the salary is a little higher ($4.6-million this year, $4.5-million in the last two years), the cap hit is an economical $4.25-million. In addition to being a quality player, Eriksson provides value relative to the salary cap. A 22-year-old winger who scored 58 goals in 77 games in his last two collegiate seasons at Miami, Reilly Smith had a solid start to his pro career, scoring 35 points in 45 AHL games, before adding nine points in 37 games, along with strong possession stats, at the NHL level. Ideally, for the Bruins, Smith would be able to step in and fill a scoring role next season, but that could be asking too much from an unproven young player. Smith is still on an entry-level deal that will pay him $900,000 in the NHL. Acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Brenden Morrow trade last season, 20-year-old Joe Morrow had a bit of a rocky first pro season. The 23rd overall pick in 2011, Morrow is an offensive defenceman who needs time to round out the rest of his game if hes going to make the jump. He offers upside as a puck-moving, point-producing defenceman, but isnt ready to provide immediate help to a Stanley Cup contender. A winger with good size who scored 70 goals in 135 AHL games over the last two seasons, Matt Fraser has also chipped in three points in 13 games with Dallas over the past two years. Frasers defensive game could use some work as well, but with continued improvement in that regard, he could give the Bruins another option up front. Sending a $9-million salary cap hit to Dallas, while taking back $4.25-million (not counting Smiths two-way deal), gives the Bruins room to maneuver financially. According to http://www.capgeek.com, they have nearly $56.9-million committed to the 2013-2014 salary cap for 19 players (including more than $4-million for Marc Savard, who will go on long-term injured reserve), leaving enough room to sign restricted free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask and bid for a scoring winger. There have been rumours about the Bruins having interest in older guys, like Daniel Alfredsson, or re-signing Jagr, but this move could also free them up to join the fray bidding on David Clarkson. How the Bruins spend their money will go a long way towards determining the value from this trade because, straight up, its going to be very difficult for Eriksson and prospects to provide more value than Seguin will deliver to Dallas. Its understandable that the Bruins took the stance that they did on a young player that they didnt think was taking his job as seriously as he should, particularly when they have a veteran group that they expect to contend for the Stanley Cup, but its very risky. Its surely been happening forever but, in recent years, allegations and Deadspin reports have swirled around the likes of Patrick Kane, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, all of whom have been Cup winners, Kane with the Chicago Blackhawks, who didnt trade him after a highly-publicized weekend in Wisconsin last spring, and Carter and Richards with Los Angeles in 2012, after the Flyers reportedly had their own concerns. Sometimes, a young player may need a trade to humble them and teach them just how high the stakes are in pro hockey, and if that happens for Seguin, the Bruins will come to regret the deal in the long run (if it happens quickly, then they could regret it even sooner). The decision they made, however, was apparently based on something that they werent prepared to accept with their current group.

          NASHVILLE -- The Arizona Cardinals keep pushing for a playoff spot, even if they bare      Cache   Translate Page      
NASHVILLE -- The Arizona Cardinals keep pushing for a playoff spot, even if they barely pulled out their latest win. Adam Pelech Jersey . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Still, the Cardinals (9-5) won their sixth in seven games. With San Francisco and Carolina winning, they remain a game back of both for a NFC wild-card berth. The Titans scored 17 points in the final 3:12 of regulation to force overtime with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing two of his four TD passes to Michael Preston. They also recovered an onside kick to set up the tying TD with 10 seconds left in regulation. They won the toss and drove to the Cardinals 43 before Antoine Cason intercepted his second pass of the game. Tennessee (5-9) lost its third straight and eighth in 10 games. The Titans also lost their fifth consecutive home game for the first time since moving to Tennessee in 1997. The Cardinals scored 21 straight points in the second half, the last when Cason returned his first interception for a TD and a 34-17 lead. The Titans outgained Arizona 460-360 with Fitzpatrick throwing for 402 yards and Kendall Wright caught 12 passes for 150 yards hours after new president Tommy Smith said he felt they hadnt given up on Mike Munchak with the coachs job security at question. But Arizona sacked Fitzpatrick three times to go along with Casons interceptions. Rashard Mendenhall also ran for a pair of 1-yard touchdowns, and Carson Palmer threw for 231 yards and had a 6-yard TD pass to Jake Ballard. Cason also recovered a botched kickoff when Arizona surprised the Titans with a short kick to open the third quarter, and the Cardinals turned that into a 47-yard field goal by Feely. The Cardinals turned those mistakes into 13 points in a game with five lead changes. Arizona also made mistakes. The Cardinals didnt have a single penalty in the first half, but had four giving the Titans first downs on a 16-play drive by Tennessee for a TD and a 17-13 lead in the third quarter. Tennessee had won only once before this season when trailing going into the fourth quarter, losing seven other games. The Titans at least pushed this game to overtime with only a few thousand fans still left in the stadium because so many left when they fell behind 34-17. Munchak deactivated receivers Justin Hunter and Damian Williams for what team officials called violating team rules. The rookie Hunter was coming off the best game of his career and had topped 100 yards in two of the past three games. That forced the Titans to play Kenny Britt, and the veteran caught his first pass since Oct. 20. He finished with three catches. Josh Bailey Jersey . Paul George and Darren Collison each scored 17 points and Roy Hibbert added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers (9-3), who won their third straight. Dennis Seidenberg Jersey . "Its amazing to do this coming from such a small island, where tennis isnt necessarily recognized as one of the main sports," Puig said.

The Kelowna, B.C. rink made the announcement on their facebook page on Thursday night.PHILADELPHIA -- A.J. Burnett and Marlon Byrd were the two acquisitions the Philadelphia Phillies were hoping would help them get back to the post-season. Well, they helped them get a win in a season going nowhere. Burnett threw 7 1-3 sharp innings, Byrd hit a three-run homer and the Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Tuesday night. "Create some momentum. We just have to carry it over into tomorrow," manager Ryne Sandberg said. Back from a 1-5 trip that left them tied with the Cubs for the worst record in the NL, the Phillies opened a six-game homestand with only their 13th win at Citizens Bank Park. Burnett (4-5) allowed two runs and three hits to earn his first win since May 20. "It all starts with our pitching," Burnett said. "If we hold them down and give our guys a chance, the better off well be." Jonathan Papelbon left the bases loaded in a scoreless ninth to record his 300th career save, becoming the 26th pitcher to reach that mark. He has 14 consecutive saves after blowing his first try. "It was tough because I didnt feel that emotion in a while," Papelbon said. "It means a lot to me, more than most people would think." Will Venable hit a solo homer for San Diego. Starter Ian Kennedy (5-7) gave up five runs and seven hits in seven innings. Kennedy retired the first nine batters before Ben Revere lined a double to right to start Philadelphias fourth. Chase Utleys RBI single tied it at 1. After Ryan Howard singled, Byrd hit an opposite-field shot into the seats in right-centre field for a 4-1 lead. "It seems theres always one pitch youd like to take back and that was the pitch," Kennedy said. "Not a good location." Utley and Howard hit consecutive singles before Byrd drove in another run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth to make it 5-1. That was enough for Burnett, who shook off his recent struggles and was in control throughout. The righty was 1-4 with a 7.25 ERA in his previous six starts. Burnett waalked two after issuing 10 in his last two starts. Ryan Pulock Jersey. "It looked like he was throwing more strikes and he had some contact outs early in counts," Sandberg said. "He also mixed in some two-seam fastballs, which worked for him in getting ground-ball outs to left-handed hitters." Burnett only threw 89 pitches before giving way to Jake Diekman, who got the final two outs in the eighth on strikeouts. Diekman reached 100 mph on one of his fastballs. "I dont like to come out of a game, period," Burnett said. "But he throws a little harder than me." The Padres took a 1-0 lead in the third when Venable lined a 3-1 pitch into the seats in right for only his second homer in 179 at-bats. Venable hit a career-high 22 homers last season. The light-hitting Padres entered with the worst batting average in the majors at .218. Carlos Quentin snapped an 0-for-24 slump with a seventh-inning double. But Everth Cabrera (0 for 18) and Jace Peterson (0 for 18) were 0 for 5 to extend their hitless streaks. Quentin scored on Yonder Alonsos sacrifice fly to cut it to 5-2. NOTES: The Phillies had some positive injury news. LHP Cliff Lee could start throwing soon. Hes missed the last four starts because of an elbow strain. 3B Cody Asche (hamstring) should start a rehab assignment this weekend. An MRI showed that RHP Mike Adams doesnt have a torn labrum. Adams will get a cortisone shot and expects to return after a stint on the DL. ... Only Arizona has fewer home wins (12) than Philadelphia. ... Papelbons save was his first since May 24. ... The Padres lost for only the 11th time when having a lead at any point in a game. Thats the third-fewest total in the majors. ... The Phillies and Padres have 11 sacrifice flies this season. Only Pittsburgh had fewer (9). ... The Phillies signed RHP Aaron Nola, the seventh overall pick in last weeks amateur draft. ...

          Cardinal Wuerl to ask pope to accept his resignation      Cache   Translate Page      

Washington D.C., Sep 12, 2018 / 04:50 pm (CNA).- An archdiocesan spokesman has confirmed that Cardinal Donald Wuerl will soon ask Pope Francis to accept his resignation as the Archbishop of Washington, D.C.

In a Sept. 11 letter to priests, Wuerl said that he would soon meet with the pope to discuss his future, but did not state at the time that he would ask the pope to allow him to resign.

The text of that letter has been posted on the website of the archdiocesan magazine.

A spokesman for Wuerl confirmed to CNA Sept. 12 that, at their next meeting, the cardinal intends to formally ask Pope Francis to allow him to step down. 

“Cardinal Wuerl understands that healing from the abuse crisis requires a new beginning and this includes new leadership for the Archdiocese of Washington,” the spokesman said.

As required by canon law, Wuerl originally submitted his resignation on Nov. 12, 2015, after turning 75 years old.

After Wuerl made a trip to Rome in late August, media reports said that Pope Francis had instructed the cardinal to return to Washington and consult with his clergy about the best way forward for him and the archdiocese.

In a meeting with priests held Labor Day, Wuerl said he would be taking time to pray and reflect on how best to proceed.

The cardinal has been the subject of considerable criticism in recent months. As the successor to Archbishop Theodore McCarrick, Wuerl has faced questions about his knowledge of sexual abuse allegations made against McCarrick, which were first reported to the public June 20.

Following the release of a Pennsylvania grand jury report at the end of July, Wuerl’s record as Bishop of Pittsburgh, where he served from 1988 until 2006, came under close scrutiny. Some cases in the report raised concerns that Wuerl had allowed priests accused of abuse to remain in ministry after allegations had been made.

Although he has faced calls to step down and several recent demonstrations outside his residence, it has been widely believed that Wuerl hoped to remain in his position at least until the general session of the U.S. bishops’ conference in November. That session is expected to focus on the fallout of the recent sexual abuse crises, and Wuerl was said to want to play and active part in helping the Church respond.

Speculation will now turn to the candidates to succeed him in Washington. The Archdiocese of Washington is a highly visible and sensitive post, requiring political and ecclesial acumen. In the wake of the McCarrick scandals, Wuerl’s successor will be expected to lead reform initiatives and restore trust in archdiocesan leadership.

Sources in Rome have told CNA that on his recent visit, Cardinal Wuerl presented several suggestions for his eventual replacement in Washington. While the list remains confidential, several curial sources told CNA that one bishop named was Archbishop Bernard Hebda, the Archbishop of St. Paul-Minneapolis.

Hebda arrived in Minneapolis as an emergency apostolic administrator in 2015 following the resignation of Archbishop Nienstedt, who was himself accused of sexual misconduct. At the same time, Hebda served as the coadjutor Archbishop of Newark and had been slated to succeed Archbishop John Myers.

While in Newark, Hedba gained a reputation as a reformer with a close interest in archdiocesan affairs, conducting unannounced visits to priests and parishes, and choosing to live on the campus of Seton Hall University where the archdiocesan seminary is housed.

Following his arrival in Minneapolis, Hebda brought the archdiocese through a protracted bankruptcy process, following multiple suits brought against it for cases of sexual abuse.

The Archdiocese of Washington told CNA that no firm date had been agreed for Cardinal Wuerl to meet with Pope Francis, adding that the meeting would take place as soon as is convenient for the pope.


          Pittsburgh bishop announces Year of Repentance      Cache   Translate Page      

Pittsburgh, Pa., Sep 12, 2018 / 11:01 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In the wake of recent sex abuse scandals, Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh has announced a Year of Repentance in the diocese.

He has asked all the clerics to fast and pray for the purification of the Church, and invited all Catholics to join the initiative.

“Faced with the sinful actions of the members of our own ranks of the clergy, who are called to manifest the example of Christ, we feel both shame and sorrow, and are reminded of our own sinfulness and the need for mercy,” Bishop Zubik wrote in a Sept. 10 letter to the clerics and seminarians of the diocese.

“I invite the faithful to join with the clergy as they desire in our acts of prayer and penance. The year is open to individuals to go beyond what I am requesting as we continue to pray that the Lord come to our aid.”

The Year of Repentance will include the observance of the Ember Days, which were traditionally days of fast and abstinence.

Bishop Zubik has asked that on each of the 12 Ember Days in the coming year, clerics of the Diocese of Pittsburgh fast, abstain from meat, and make a Holy Hour.

Ember Days are tied to the seasons of the year, and are held on the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of four weeks: the third week of September, the third week of Advent, the first week of Lent, and the octave of Pentecost.

In the Pittsburgh diocese's Year of Repentance, the Ember Days fall Sept. 19, 21, and 22, 2018, Dec. 19, 21, 22, 2018, March 13, 15, 16, 2019, and June 12, 14, 15, 2019.

Bishop Zubik will inaugurate the Year of Repentance Sept. 23 with Vespers and a Holy Hour at the cathedral.

The year will close with a Mass for the Assumption Aug. 15, 2019 to serve “as a sign of hope and healing for victims and for renewal in the Church through the intercession of Mary.”

In his letter, Bishop Zubik also encouraged the clerics of Pittsburgh to consider restoring the recitation of the prayer to St. Michael after all Masses.

          Frankie Grande Shares His Commitment to Beating Addiction in Honor of Mac Miller      Cache   Translate Page      

Frankie Grande shared an emotional message on Wednesday after Mac Miller's death from an apparent overdose on Sept. 7. Ariana Grande's older brother not only took the opportunity to thank Mac (whose real name was Malcolm McCormick) for being a good friend, but also to shed light on addiction - a disease that he has personally struggled with, too. "He was a good friend and was wonderful to my sister. He was the reason I went to the rehabilitation center where I was detoxed safely from all of the drugs, alcohol, and medications I was taking, when I couldn't imagine living without them," Frankie wrote.

The 35-year-old dancer, actor, and singer went on to encourage others not to be afraid to seek help and reminded people they're not alone. "Addiction is a TERRIBLE disease . . . many people are suffering from addiction like I am and many, many of them are losing. Those of us who are struggling with addiction must stay strong. We must continue to work HARD on ourselves every single day and help each other. To anyone who needs help, help is there. You just need to have the courage to ask, which I know can be EXTREMELY difficult . . . but when you do, I GUARANTEE support will be there."

Last week, Ariana shared a personal photo of Mac on Instagram with no caption. Frankie closed out his Instagram caption by saying, "Malcolm, my friend, you will be dearly missed, and I know you will be looking down on me from heaven, proud AF for every day I live my life clean and sober . . . 453 days and counting."

The 2018 freshman class arrives as the largest for the Kent Campus in university history. With 4,363 students, this class has 100 more students than a year ago and topped the previous record high from in 2016.

The academic quality of this new class also reached record highs with an average 3.4 high school grade point averages (GPA) and an average ACT score score of 23.5. Nearly half of these new freshmen arrive with more than 16 college credits -- the equivalent of a full semester -- from courses they completed in high school.

This high-achieving class follows a record year for Kent State’s graduates who earned 5,758 baccalaureate degrees for the 2017-18 academic year, surpassing the previous  year’s record and nearly doubling the number of baccalaureate degrees awarded in 2000.

Freshman Katie Applequist chose Kent State for many reasons, including following in the footsteps of a special family member.

“I initially looked into Kent State because of the good reputation I’d heard and the fact that my great grandmother graduated from Kent Normal School in 1930,” Ms. Applequist said. “Once I toured a few times and saw that the reputation of a nice campus, good food, a good honors and education program, and nice people wasn’t just talk, I was excited to begin my journey as a Golden Flash.”

In addition to the growing number of freshman students, the number of out-of-state students rose nearly 10 percent this year. The number of first-generation students also rose, up nearly 7 percent compared to last year.

Elijah Kirkland-Boyce, from the Pittsburgh area, is the first in his family to attend college. Now in his junior year, Mr. Kirkland-Boyce is pursuing a degree in athletic training in Kent State’s College of Education, Health and Human Services.

“I fell in love with the campus because it is so beautiful,” Mr. Kirkland-Boyce said. “Kent State wasn’t far away from home, but it was just far enough.”

The class size for underrepresented freshmen is also setting records as one of the largest in history, and the success gap between underrepresented and non-underrepresented is closing with the help of improved retention rates, up nearly a percentage point. Kent State’s University College offers academic diversity outreach and student support programs to help students explore majors, engage in the campus community, receive academic assistance and ultimately graduate.

Jordan Wilkins took part in Academic STARS, a six-week cultural transition and retention program designed for newly admitted African-American, Latin American, Hispanic, Native American and multiracial freshmen.

“The program helped me understand the significance of being African-American and my history,” said Mr. Wilkins, who graduated in May. “I never lost sight of why I was at Kent State in the first place.”

This year’s freshman class is also seeing an increase in international students. Students on the Kent Campus come from countries such as China, Saudi Arabia, India, Oman, Nepal, South Korea, Bangladesh, Canada and Nigeria – to name a few. The number of students enrolled at Kent State Florence in Italy is also trending up, just as classes get underway at the American Academy, a new partnership between Kent State and Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR), a major university in Brazil, for students who want a global experience while earning their degree.

Additional areas of enrollment growth include a spike in undergraduate and graduate students in Kent State’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design and the College of Public Health.

Enrollment on the campuses of Kent State University at Ashtabula, Kent State University at Trumbull and Kent State University at Tuscarawas also improved.

We talk about the overall game that Steelers running back James Conner had against the Browns and especially his performance in the fourth quarter.

We discuss my thoughts on his play and then look at how Pro Football Focus graded the play of the tackle against the Browns. We talk more about the poor play of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger against the Browns and if he needs more work during the preseason moving forward. After recapping the Steelers injury situation heading into Week 2, David and recap the main talking points that came out of the Tuesday press conference given by head coach Mike Tomlin. That discussion includes us talking about his reaction to a recent tweet by wide receiver Antonio Brown that has since been delated. We wrap this show up with some updated news about Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell, outside linebacker T.J. Watt being named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 1 and more.

          Questions from Trivia Night at the Sesquicentennial      Cache   Translate Page      
The Top Five Teams sweat out the last "Jeopardy" question: Name all the streets and alleys named after people?  From the Left: Deb and Kris Kunkle, Steve "Hogan" Ebbert, Mike Mriss and Jimmy Young, and Justin Markell and Scott Nothstein.  Off frame to the left was Nancy Shaffer.  Contestants could compete alone or in pairs.  The Lehighton Fire Department Brothers of the Brush were well represented.  Scorekeeper was Nate Rabenold.  (A full list of contestants are listed at the end of this post.)  Trivia Night photos are courtesy of Lisa Hopstock photography.  Click here for her website.
Lehighton was the world's gateway to the industrial revolution.  As one step from the coal transport hub of Mauch Chunk, many saw the town's industrial potential.

Parryville had Carbon Iron Works.  The Beaver Meadow Railroad was the first rail-line in Carbon County, originating in 1830.  Not to mention the paint pigments mined in the Bowmanstown area in the 1800s.  The Lehigh Valley Railroad sourced through town in 1855 and Lehighton's Packerton Yard became its main repair facility.

A testament to the area's industrial past comes from this 1851 article

brothers.
~Lehighton Sesquicentennial: The Pioneers and the Promise

~Lehighton Sesquicentennial Trivia Night Introduction and sample questions

So it is little wonder with America's industrial apotheosis can be directly connected to the coal and iron that came through town.  Evidence of the promise of our town is shown in the naming of five of our streets: Carbon Street, Ochre Street, Coal Street, Iron Street, and Alum Street.

On the second last night of the eight-day Sesquicentennial Celebration this week, eighteen teams squared off in a trivia contest that answered questions about our town and our proud history.

Over 100 questions were developed, however only about forty-five were used.  This will be the first of two posts written on this trivia.  Following here will be the questions as posed Friday night.  However the answers to them will appear in the next post, giving the reader a chance to test themselves.

Besides the committee members like Autumn Abelovsky and Duane Dellecker, the Trivia Night would not have been possible without the volunteer help of many individuals: Rosanne Klotz Hoats, Nate Rabenold, Lori Stubits, Rachel Quinn, Kim Rabenold, Kathy Rhoads Long, Angela Tobash, Olivia Frendt, Izabella Baka, Samantha Banning, Jess Ripkey, Dane Frantz, Nate Petit-Clair, Nathan Kemmerer, Jake Petit-Clair, Alyssa Stubits and Kennedy Quinn.
Hosting of the event at the Amphiteahter
were Ronald Rabenold and Kathy Rhoads Long.

The focus of the second post will be to cover the information contained within the questions that were not used.  All 100 questions (with answers) as well as competitor names will be sealed into the time-capsule bench in front of borough hall to be opened in 2066.  I'll be ninety-nine, and judging from the current state of my mind, I am certain all this material will be fairly absent from my mind by then.

          Albrightsville: The Fire and the Fury (Part 1: "The Fire")      Cache   Translate Page      
"The sky turned as black as midnight," said survivor Charles Gambler.


(Part #2 of this post "the Fury" can be seen by clicking here...)

Things were beginning to feel normal again.
Johanna Kibler survived the "Great
Fire of 1875" when she was just nine.
Her father Reuben Kibler worked or
owned a stave-mill that was lost.
She later married Jacob Heydt and
they had a large family.  She died in 1945.

A group of survivors gathered at the Pine Grove House.  The owner, Jacob Christman, hosted his neighbors for a Thanksgiving feast and day of remembrance of those lost in the “Great Fire” that tore through the Pine Swamp eighteen months earlier.

Many surviving families were represented, owners of the destroyed mills along with stave-mill workers like Reuben Kibler.  Reuben fought in vain to save his mill.  His daughter, young Johanna was there, the little nine-year-old witness who not only saw her school and her whole world burn, but who stoically watched the flames devour her home as well.

Sabylla Getz attended the meal with her widowed father William.  Her mother Elizabeth Getz died in the flames.  Other surviving families that attended Christman’s meal were the Deppe’s, Snyder’s, Silfies’s, Bollinger’s, Moyer’s, and Schelley’s.

 Though heavy hearted and gathered in sober testimony to those lost, most eyes were likely to be dry.  As Sam Hoffman, a former member of this community wrote years later, “The people of the Pine Swamp country hardly ever cry when strangers are present, tears may enter their eyes but they try hard not to show their sorrow.” 
News of Carbon's "Great Fire" reached as far as the Pittsburgh Commerical
paper on May 25, 1875.


The forest was thinned, charred hemlocks and diminished browse allowed more light to hit the forest floor.  The huckleberries and winter green were flourishing.

Folks were coming back to the area from the cities of Wilkes-Barre, Allentown and Reading to hike for berries and for trout fishing.  Many would stay at Francis “Franz” Wernet’s “Wernet House.”

Franz was widely known as the “huckleberry king.”  He owned over 4,000 acres of prime huckleberry land which included his large saw mill he rebuilt at the headwaters of Mud Run in Meckesville.

Normal indeed for some friendly competition too.  Wernet’s neighbor, W. H. Rausch, specialized in fly fishing. He harvested four and a half pounds of meat from just three trout he caught on Mud Run. 

Not to be outdone, Wernet drained his sawmill pond on the Mud and took several sixteen each suckers for a meal.

Scorched trees stood as ever salient and constant reminders of the horror of the fire that started in the coal regions, around Beaver Meadow in Schuylkill County in early May 1875. 

The fire jumped the Lehigh River and followed the Mud Run and Hickory Run ravines across northern Carbon County.

It burned through the logging villages of Hickory Run, through Mud Run, through Meckesville and Albrightsville, over Hell’s Kettle and Hell Hollow.  

To great sighs of relief to the residents, it reach the northern extreme of Weissport and Parryville just as an isolated rain shower miraculously appeared and extinguish if shortly before May 28th.  
This account from Lehighton's newspaper, "The Carbon Advocate,"
on May 29, 1875.  It stated that Getz's eldest son is suffering from
typhoid.  It is unknown if it is referring to his eldest son who actually
died the month before or if his current oldest son was also suffering
from the disease.  His wife and son Henry are the only
relatives that can be found on record to have died in 1875.

At that time, save for a few flare ups here and there, the fire was largely out.

The entire village of Mud Run, starting with Frederick Youndt’s sawmill at the mouth of Mud Run was gone except for: the railroad station, blacksmith shop and freight house and one hotel.  And despite losing his sawmill, at least Youndt’s home was spared.

Abel Kelsey lost everything.  Gone were his house, barn, cattle, and his entire lumbering works.  His wife Elenor’s life’s work, intricate wax sculptures, lost. 

Johanna Kibler remembered losing a souvenir from a church function, her prized ostrich feather.

Many saw the parallels to the sufferings of Job in William Getz’s sorrow.
In April, Getz lost his eldest son Henry to typhoid fever.  Another son and his wife were said to still be suffering from the fever’s effects when the fire struck.  He was able to get them out ahead of it and into an open field but it wasn’t enough. 

As the fire encircled them, it gradually burned everything they owned: their home, outbuildings, sawmill, and stock piles of lumber both still in timber and thousands of board feet already planed. 

But the fire took one more thing from William Getz.  He stood helpless to watch his wife of twenty-five years slowly succumb to the smoke.

Elizabeth Cox was eighty when the flames took her.  Her aged husband died the previous June.  She and her husband had buried three grown children from their Hickory Run and Stoddartsville homes.  The last anyone saw her forty-year-old son Miles, he was out doing what he could against the fire.

Of Elizabeth Cox’s death, a boy, who lost all his possessions in the fire reportedly said, “The fire took my all: I lost my box, my pet fox, and dear old lady Cox.”
Gambler's Neighborhood:
This is the only home that survived the fire from the village of Mud Run.
The picture taken in 1964.  The property to the mouth of Mud Run at the Lehigh
River is still owned by the family who owned the Trojan Powder Company.  Over
the years they conducted blasting and dynamite storage on the vast piece of
property.  The sole remaining member of the family still owns it as a private
fishing club.  The house was remodeled and used as the original clubhouse.

Charles Gambler was one of the oldest living survivors.  He was three at the time.  Known to be a hermit, some say he lived in caves from time to time along the Mud Run.  He never owned a car and could often be seen walking along the roads around Hickory Run.  He died in 1961.

“The daytime sky had turned as black as midnight,” Gambler had said.  The hemlocks seemed to be able to withstand the fire for a time, but then let loose into a fury flames.

He remembered his father loading him, his mother, and sister into a tiny rowboat.  They rowed into the middle of one of the small sawmill dams on the Mud Run. 

Huddling below the gunwales, he could feel intense heat on his back.
Everyone survived, but like many, they lost everything.

But eventually, life had to return to normal.  Slowly.
John Henry Deppe was a German immigrant
and pioneer lumberman of the Pine Swamp.
His father was an officer in the Prussian Army.
His mother not wanting him to follow his father
into the military life, purchased his voyage to
America in 1848.  He became widely known
for his wooden wheels and was also a
cabinet maker.  He died of pneumonia.
1826~1891

Abel Kelsey had seen enough though.  He and his wife and son picked up and carried westward to the Dakota Territory after the fire.  John Henry Deppe’s son Nelson took his blacksmith shop to Sullivan County.

Two years later, still found John Henry Deppey (sometimes known as Henry John) expanding and rebuilding his father’s grist mill that had been destroyed.

Their livelihoods depended on the stills that made wintergreen oil and applejack.  Three years after their baptism of fire, residents of the Penn Forest and South Kidder proudly received the distinction of casting all “nay’s” to the temperance vote put before them in the November 1878 election.  

The damage was extensive.  Countless homes, farms and businesses were lost.  Papers at the time estimated the losses to exceed an unheard of value of those days, $500,000.

The major players who lost the most were Wilhelm Getz, David Snyder, John Eckert, and Franz Wernet.

Isaac and Susan Gould were pioneers of Hickory Run in the early to mid 1800s.  Their son Stephen lost several million board feet of timber.
The firm of Shortz and Lewis lost over five million feet in logs.

John Eckert’s sawmill, house and lumber were valued at $7,000.  Josiah Kunkle’s mill works: valued at $4,000.  Getz and Searfoss’s operations: $10,000, David Snyder: $12,000.  Franz Wernet lost $12,000 in his house, logs and mill.

Long and Boileau lost 500,000 board feet valued at $4,000.  Jacob Hawk lost 20,000 board feet of sawed wood and 150,000 logs at a cost of $2,500.

~Specific names of those attending the Thanksgiving dinner of Jacob Christman: Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Hawk, G.W. Snyder, J. Monroe George, William H. George, Alice Getz, Sabylla and William Getz, Nelson Deppe (a blacksmith who shortly after moved to Sullivan County), Sarah Kibler, Hester Kibler, H.G. Deppe, Henry J. and Sarah Deppe, George and Mrs Christman, Henry Silfies, Matilda Snyder, Reuben Kibler, J.F. Silfies, Joseph Bollinger, Lydia Moyer, and Uriah Schelley.

~Miles Cox is believed to have been lost just as his mother Elizabeth too died in the flames.  His wife Helen (Swainback) Cox died when she was just twenty-two back in 1856.  


~Francis ‘Franz’ and Catharina Wernett were parents of Edward, Catherine, Frank, and Charles Wernett.  It appears Franz used just one ‘t’ in their surname while the children used two.  Catharina is buried at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Albrightsville, it is presumed Franz is buried with her.  Their son Charles owned and operated the Jamestown Hotel in Lehighton and is buried in Lehighton as well as his brother Frank.  Frank operated the Effort Village Inn. 
The Effort Village Inn as it appeared around 1900.  It was owned by Franz Wernet's
son Frank and his wife Amanda.

After his death in 1921, his wife Amanda and children, Frank “Homer” Wernett and Helen Wernett Kresge, ran it into the 1940s.

~Another “Charles Wernett” was born about nine years after the Charles of the Franz Wernett family and doesn’t appear to be related.  This Charles arrived from Germany in 1884 and eventually ran a hotel in Albrightsville known as the “Wernett Estate Hotel.”  
Pictured here are offspring of the first generation Charles Wernett: Xavier and
Fred as they look over the burnt ruins of their father's Albrightsville
hotel in October 1948.

It burned to the ground in October of 1948, shortly after his death.  His sons Xavier and Fred Wernett were running it at the time.















~Another fire, in 1966, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Christman's burns to the ground.  It was completely lost.
Member's Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church around 1910 at "Christmans," Penn Forest, just past where "Skirmish" is today.

          2000 NLCS MVP- Mets Pitcher: Mike Hampton (2000)      Cache   Translate Page      
Michael William Hampton was born on September 9, 1972 in Brooksville, Florida. The five foot ten left handed pitcher was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 6th round of the 1990 draft . Hampton had a modest minor league career, winning a high of 13 games (13-8) with a 3.12 ERA at A ball San Bernardino in 1992.

In 1993 he made the Seattle staff out of Spring Training. He debuted in Detroit allowing four runs to the Tigers & taking a loss in four innings of work. That day the Mariners lost 20-3. On April 23rd he earned his first big league win, it was a middle relief appearance against the A.L. New York team. He remained on the staff through July going 1-3 with a save & two holds with a 9.53 ERA. He was sent down to AA Jacksonville, where he went 6-4 the rest of the year. In the off season he was traded to the Houston Astros along with Mike Felder in exchange for Eric Anthony.

He spent six seasons in Houston gradually developing into a top starter. Hampton kept his ERA under four every year with the Astros although he did give up a large number of hits & walks throughout his career. He gradually increased his victories each season, going from nine in 1995 to ten in 1996. That year he was 10- 10, striking out 101 batters pitching in 160 innings, while posting a 3.59 ERA.

In 1997 he won 15 games (15-10) second on the first place Astros staff to Daryl Kile (19-7). Hampton posted a 3.83 ERA, throwing a pair of shut outs, striking out 139 batters while pitching 223 innings (9th in the NL). His 34 starts & seven complete games were both third most in the league. On his down side he allowed 217 hits (4th in the league) 77 walks (6th in the league) & 95 earned runs (8th in the league). In the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves, he took the loss in Game #2 allowing six runs in 4.2 innings.

In 1998 he was 11-7 getting to the NLDS again , this time losing to the NL Champion San Diego Padres. He earned no decision in the series. By 1999 he was one of the league’s top pitchers, leading the NL with 22 wins, and a .846 winning percentage. He was third in the NL with a 2.90 ERA, striking out a career high 177 batters (9th in the NL) in 239 innings pitched (4th in the NL). He threw three complete games with two shut outs.

He was the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year, coming in runner up to Arizona's Randy Johnson for the Cy Young Award. Hampton made his first ALL Star appearance that year as well. He was one of two twenty game winners on the Astros staff, the other being Jose Lima (21-10). The Astros got to another post season but exited in the first round once again. Hampton was always a good hitting pitcher and was one of the best of his era. In 1999 he hit .311 with seven walks and 10 RBIs. 

Houston took advantage of Hampton's big season; with it being the final year of his contract they put him on the trade block. In order to not pay out a big contract they traded him to the New York Mets in December 1999. In the deal the Astros insisted the Mets take along Derek Bell who had been nothing but trouble for Houston. In exchange the Mets gave up Octavio Dotel & Roger Cedeno. He may have had a short career in New York but the one season he pitched here, was an important one. He was the last piece Bobby Valentine needed in order to get his team to the World Series.

Hampton’s 2000 season didn’t start out so well, on Opening Day in a game played in Japan, he lost to the Chicago Cubs, allowing two runs over five innings pitched. He started out the year at 0-3 before getting his first win, which came at Shea Stadium on April 18th against the Milwaukee Brewers. In May he won four straight game going 4-0 in the month. In the first three of those games he allowed just one run in 18 innings of work. He tossed one complete game while going into the 8th inning or beyond three times.

On May 20th he came to bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 4th inning facing Omar Dahl with the Mets down 1-0. He singled driving in the first two runs, in what turned out to be a 15-8 Mets win over the Chicago Cubs. Later in the year on August 7th, he helped his own caude & drove in two more Mets runs with a single in Houston, leading to a 6-5 win.

On June 25th he pitched a five hit shutout at Shea Stadium, striking out nine Pittsburgh Pirates. He won another three straight from there into July. On July 9th he pitched seven innings of shutout ball, to beat the AL New York team 2-0 in the subway series at Shea. On July 27th he pitched another complete game in the second game of a double header, beating the Montreal Expos. From there he went on another four game win streak throughout the month of August, topped off by an eight inning, three hitter against the Arizona Diamondback.

He was 13-7 entering September but had a rough 0-3 start to the September pennant race. On September 2nd he pitched into the 9th inning but took a tough 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. In his next start he pitched into the 8th inning but the Mets were shut out by Vicente Padilla & the Phillies. On September 23rd he beat the Phillies & then in his last start of the regular season, he pitched five shutout innings to beat the Montreal Expos at Shea Stadium.

He finished up the year at 15-10, second on the Mets staff to Al Leiter's 16 wins & tenth most wins in the NL. He struck out 151 batters, also second on the staff to Leiter’s 200 strike outs. Hampton led the club in ERA 3.10 (the 5th best in the NL) innings pitched (217) complete games (3) & one shutout. For the second year in a row he also allowed the fewest HRs per nine innings (0.414) in the National League. At the plate he hit .274 driving in 8 runs, leading all NL pitchers.



Post Season: In the NLDS he opened up the Series in San Francisco but gave up five runs taking the loss to the Giants. Hampton made up for it & secured his place in Mets history in the NLCS. In the series opener at St. Louis' Busch Stadium, Hampton pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just six hits while striking out four Cardinals. The Mets took the Opener 6-2. He saved his best outing of the year, for the pennant clinching Game #5 at Shea Stadium.

Hampton went the distance pitching a three hit complete game shutout, striking out eight Cardinals in front a wild sold out, Shea Stadium crowd. (centerfieldmaz was in attendance that historic night) It ranks as one of the best Mets post season pitching performances in the clubs history. He got the last out when Cardinals pinch hitter Rick Wilkins flew out to centerfielder Jay Payton. As the Mets celebrated, Hampton was lifted off the ground by Mike Piazza as the Mets advanced to the World Series. Hampton was voted the MVP of the NLCS.


In the World Series, he took the loss in Game #2 giving up four runs, on eight hits & five walks in six innings pitched of the 6-5 Mets loss. After the 2000 season he upset Met fans by signing with the Colorado Rockies.

The air in Colorado made him an even better hitter; he hit 10 HRs & batted over .300 in two seasons playing there. He won 14 games in the Rocky Mountains but lost 13 and had an ERA of 5.14. Next season he battled injuries and his ERA ballooned over six as he lost 15 games while only winning seven.

He was traded to the Atlanta Braves in 2003 and went 14-8 with a 3.84 ERA getting to another post season. In the NLDS he pitched two games taking a 5-1 loss in the final Game #5 to the Chicago Cubs. That season he won the gold Glove Award, breaking Greg Maddox record of 13 straight.

In 2004 he was 13-9 posting a 4.28 ERA and got no decisions in two games pitched in the NLDS against Houston. In 2005 he had arm trouble and needed Tommy John surgery that September. He missed the entire 2006 season rehabbing his arm. In 2007 he returned but then tore an oblique muscle and had to miss the rest of that season as well. In April 2008 he was to make a highly anticipated return, but while warming up he strained a pectoral muscle & was placed on the DL. He finally returned almost three years later, in July of 2008.


In his first start he allowed six runs to the Phillies in Philadelphia, exiting after four innings. In his next start he allowed four runs in five innings of work. On August 5th he earned his first win in nearly three years, beating the San Francisco Giants. He would go 4-5 with a 4.85 ERA for Atlanta in 2008.

In 2009 he signed with his old team in Houston, taking the role as the number two starter behind the Astros; Roy Oswalt. He went 7-10 with an ERA of 4.07. By the end of the season he needed rotator cuff surgery and missed most of 2010, returning in September with the Arizona D-backs.

In his 16 year career he was 148-115 (249th most wins all time) with a 4.06 ERA. He struck out 1387 batters (226th all time) with 901 walks (157th most all time) in 2268 innings pitched over 409 games. Hampton made 355 starts (183rd all time) with nine shut outs & 21 complete games. He has given up 200 HRs with 1024 earned runs (212th all time most). Hampton has thrown 75 wild pitches (210 all time) Hampton is the only pitcher to win five Silver Slugger Awards.

          Pope summons bishops for sex abuse scandal meeting as thousands of cases emerge in Germany      Cache   Translate Page      

Pope summons bishops for sex abuse scandal meeting as thousands of cases emerge in GermanyPope Francis has summoned senior Catholic bishops from around the world to the Vatican to discuss the protection of minors, in his latest attempt to come to grips with a spreading sexual abuse crisis. The heads of the national Catholic bishops' conferences will meet with Francis from February 21-24 next year, a Vatican spokeswoman said. The announcement came at the end of a three-day meeting of the "C-9", a group of nine cardinals from around the world who members meet about four times a year to advise the pope. The spokeswoman said the sexual abuse crisis was a main topic at the meeting, which six of the members attended. The Catholic Church is facing sexual abuse scandals in the United States, Chile, Australia and Germany, among others. Der Spiegel magazine reported on Wednesday that a study commissioned by the German Bishops' Conference had revealed that 1,670 clerics and priests had sexually abused 3,677 minors, mostly males, in Germany over a 70-year period. In the United States, a Grand Jury has found that 301 priests in the state of Pennsylvania sexually abused minors over a similar period. Francis meets on Thursday with US Church leaders to discuss that report as well as a scandal involving a former American cardinal and demands from an Italian archbishop, Carlo Maria Viganò, that the pontiff step down over that case. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, president of the US bishops' conference, asked for the meeting after Viganò last month accused the pope of knowing for years about sexual misconduct by former US cardinal Theodore McCarrick and doing nothing about it.. Viganò said he had told Francis soon after the pontiff's election in 2013 that McCarrick, former archbishop of Washington D.C., had engaged in sexual misconduct with adult male seminarians. McCarrick resigned in July over separate allegations - which US Church officials said were "credible and substantiated" - that he had abused a 16-year-old boy almost 50 years ago. McCarrick, whom the pope ordered to live a life of seclusion and penitence, has said he has "absolutely no recollection" of such an incident. He has not commented on the allegations of misconduct with the adult seminarians. Hours after Viganò's statement was published, Francis told reporters that he would "not say a word" about it because it "speaks for itself". However, the Vatican is now preparing a response. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who succeeded McCarrick as archbishop of Washington D.C., told priests on Tuesday that he would travel to Rome to discuss his future with the pope. Wuerl, 77, who was bishop of Pittsburgh between 1988 and 2006, has been under scrutiny over his handling of sexual abuse cases during the period addressed by the Pennsylvania Grand Jury. Wuerl has defended his overall record in Pittsburgh, but has also been accused of knowing about sexual misconduct by McCarrick, which he denies.

          Piratas detienen a Cardenales con un ajustado triunfo; Marte y Reyes anotan una cada uno      Cache   Translate Page      

SAN LUIS. Jameson Taillon se acreditó su cuarta victoria consecutiva, Jacob Stallings impulsó tres carreras y los Piratas de Pittsburgh frenaron a los Cardenales de San Luis al vencerlos 4-3 el miércoles, con lo cual pusieron fin a su racha ganadora de tres juegos.

San Luis ingresó con una foja de 34-18 bajo el liderazgo del nuevo manager Mike Shildt y con la mayor cantidad de victorias en la Liga Nacional luego del descanso por el Juego de Estrellas. La ventaja de los Cardenales en la lucha por el segundo comodín de la Liga Nacional se redujo a dos juegos sobre los Dodgers de Los Ángeles.

Taillon (13-9) permitió dos carreras y cuatro hits en siete entradas. Se bajó del montículo con una ventaja de 4-1 y con dos hombres en bases. El derecho ha recibido 19 carreras en más de 71 capítulos durante sus últimas 11 aperturas.

El venezolano José Martínez pegó un roletazo para un out forzado mientras entraba una carrera en la octava entrada ante Felipe Vázquez, quien permitió un sencillo productor de Patrick Wisdom en la novena.

El venezolano Vázquez se recuperó y ponchó a Paul DeJong y a Matt Carpenter con dos hombres en a bordo para finalizar el encuentro y conquistar su vigesimosegundo salvamento consecutivo, y su 32do en 36 oportunidades durante la temporada. Pittsburgh ha ganado seis de los últimos ocho encuentros.

Daniel Poncedeleon (0-2), quien cumplió su cuarta apertura con San Luis, aceptó dos anotaciones y cinco inatrapables en cinco actos.

Por los Piratas, los dominicanos Starling Marte de 5-1 con una anotada y Pablo Reyes de 3-2 con una anotada.

Por los Cardenales, el venezolano Martínez de 1-0 con una remolcada. Los dominicanos Marcell Ozuna de 4-1 con una impulsada y Yairo Muñoz de 4-1 con una anotada.


          Gregory Polanco fue operado del hombro izquierdo      Cache   Translate Page      

ESTADOS UNIDOS. Luego de ser examinado el miércoles en el “Hospital for Special Surgery” en Nueva York, el jardinero dominicano de los Piratas, Gregory Polanco, fue operado del hombro izquierdo, anunció el equipo en un comunicado.

Polanco se dislocó el hombro y también se lesionó la rodilla izquierda el viernes durante el triunfo de Pittsburgh 5-3 sobre los Marlins de Miami en la sexta entrada, después de barrerse en la intermedia tras conectar un doblete, según informó MLB.COM.

El equipo no informó en cuánto tiempo podría estar de vuelta Polanco, que cumplirá 27 años el viernes.

Polanco bateaba para .256 con 23 jonrones y 81 carreras impulsadas. Polanco también encabeza al equipo con 61 extrabases.

Nina is a 1.5yr old cat who was given to the shelter shortly after giving birth to 3 kittens. She and her babies were sent into a foster home, where they had all been living together for the past few weeks. Nina was a fabulous mommy to her kittens, but it's time for her to get some much-deserved relaxation and some attention of her own! Nina can be a little bit shy and reserved, but she truly enjoyed being showered with love and affection in her foster home. Nina's foster mom thinks that she would do well in a home that will allow her to have her own space when/if she wants it, but with a person or people there who genuinely want to provide her with some quality attention. She was very purry and enjoyed being petted and loved on in foster care, although she isn't a fan of being held. Her foster mom was able to handle her with no issues, but Nina just prefers to be around you instead of on top of you or confined by you.

          Penn State's James Franklin praises Kevin Givens' play in return, assesses Lions' tight ends      Cache   Translate Page      

Givens is the Lions' most talented defensive tackle. Watch video

Penn State outscored Pittsburgh 37-0 in the second half of Saturday night's game in the rain at Heinz Field. The Lions were better in all phases and embarrassed the Panthers in a 51-6 victory.

But there is room for improvement and the Lions have a chance to take a step forward against Kent State Saturday at Beaver Stadium.

The defensive line should continue to develop with redshirt junior Kevin Givens back in the middle.

The tight end group could be better if one of the players emerges from PSU's committee approach.

And James Franklin is expecting a better "finish" from his 2-0 team despite the fact the Lions outscored Pittsburgh 21-0 in the fourth quarter.

Franklin touched on all three topics during Wednesday's post-practice media session.

Givens, who missed the Appalachian State game due to a suspension for a violation of team rules, produced seven tackles and a couple of tackles for loss from his 3-technique spot.

"(Kevin's) an explosive guy, he's got great lateral quickness, he's really strong,'' Franklin said in a video posted on Penn State football's Facebook page.

"So we added one of the more explosive players that we have on our team, we added one of the more experienced defensive linemen that we have, so obviously, the combination of those things ... he's going to have a big presence.''

The Lions leaned on three tight ends -- veterans Jon Holland and Danny Dalton, and true freshman Pat Freiermuth. The trio combined for five catches for 47 yards.

"Yeah, I don't think we ever really say that our plan is to do things by committee,'' Franklin said when asked about the tight ends.

"We do that until someone clearly takes, you know, a hold of the job and creates a separation from the next guys. If there's no separation, then we keep rotating.'' 

And what about that finish against Pittsburgh? Franklin was not pleased with the fumbles and dropped passes. A couple of penalties also negated long gains earlier in the game.

"I think, more than anything, there were some things that I didn't think we were doing well late in the game,'' Franklin said.

"I think, one of the things for us, it's just kind of in my DNA and it's just kind of how I'm built, whether it's the first quarter and we're down by seven or whether it's the fourth quarter and we're up by 21 or whatever it is, we're not going to change kinda how we do things.

"We put the ball on the ground a few times, we just were sloppy and we have a standard of how we do things. Score doesn't dictate that, weather doesn't dictate that, we're going to play up to our standards and our expectations. I want to see us finish well. ... We didn't finish the way we should have finished.''

Nina is a 1.5yr old cat who was given to the shelter shortly after giving birth to 3 kittens. She and her babies were sent into a foster home, where they had all been living together for the past few weeks. Nina was a fabulous mommy to her kittens, but it's time for her to get some much-deserved relaxation and some attention of her own! Nina can be a little bit shy and reserved, but she truly enjoyed being showered with love and affection in her foster home. Nina's foster mom thinks that she would do well in a home that will allow her to have her own space when/if she wants it, but with a person or people there who genuinely want to provide her with some quality attention. She was very purry and enjoyed being petted and loved on in foster care, although she isn't a fan of being held. Her foster mom was able to handle her with no issues, but Nina just prefers to be around you instead of on top of you or confined by you.

          Bloomberg takes on Trump with new film dissing exit from Paris accord      Cache   Translate Page      

Bloomberg Philanthropies, the advocacy and philanthropic arm of Mike Bloomberg’s organization, gave Axios an early look at the new trailer for their second documentary film, "Paris to Pittsburgh."

Why it matters: It's a direct rebuke of President Trump's intention to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement — one that underscores the deep-pocketed organization's recent push to use filmmaking as a national advocacy tool.


The details: Based on the trailer, the film makes a few big points:

  • Cities and local governments are moving ahead on climate efforts despite Trump's decision.
  • Storms and wildfires worsened by climate change are hammering the U.S. right now.
  • Expanding renewable energy is beneficial to the economy and job creation.

It also showcases elected officials like Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo (Fla.) and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, as well as climate scientists and Americans who have experienced natural disasters in their backyards.

The bottom line: "Americans are determined to uphold our end of the Paris Climate Agreement, with or without Washington's help," says Mike Bloomberg. "'Paris to Pittsburgh' shows how disconnected Washington is from the American people on climate change, and how communities across the country are taking action to confront the severe health and economic threats it poses.”

Timing: National Geographic Documentary Films will distribute "Paris to Pittsburgh," and it will premiere on Dec. 12 at 9 p.m. ET.

Watch the trailer:

          Mac Miller's Friend Says Ariana Grande Was 'Unbelievably Involved' In His Sobriety      Cache   Translate Page      
Rapper Mac Miller and singer Ariana Grande backstage during the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

Ariana Grande was “deeply helpful” and “effective” in getting Mac Miller sober during their relationship, according to one of the late rapper’s closest friends.  

The 26-year-old Miller was found dead in his San Fernando Valley home in California on Sept. 7 after an apparent overdose. His substance abuse, which he mentioned frequently in his music, was an issue for Grande, who previously described their two-year relationship as “toxic” and “scary.”

Some people continue to blame the pop star for his death, but Shane Powers, a longtime friend of Miller’s, praised her for being “unbelievably involved” in every step of the rapper’s sobriety journey. 

“They were very much in love, and I have to say she was incredible when he was first sobering up,” he said on his podcast, “The Shane Show.” “She was a fucking G to him. There could not have been anybody more supportive of him being sober than Ariana. I saw that. I was around it.”

Miller and Grande on their way to an Oscar party in Los Angeles on March 4.

Powers went on to say that Grande called him from time to time when concerned about Miller’s health to ask, “How do I help? What do I do?” 

“This little girl was unbelievably involved and helpful to him being healthy,” Powers added. 

The pop star and the rapper split in May after two years of dating (and many more of being friends). Days after their breakup, Miller was involved in a car collision and later arrested on DUI and hit-and-run charges, which were dismissed after his death. 

“Whether he’s an addict or not, the way that Mac partied was not healthy,” Powers continued on his show. “There was no one in his life more ready to go to the wall for him when it came to him being sober. She was an unbelievably stabilizing force in his life, and she was deeply helpful and effective in keeping Mac sober and helping him get sober. She was all about him being healthy. Period.”

Grande is now engaged to “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson. They started dating weeks after her relationship to Miller ended. 

Miller and Grande onstage during the One Love Manchester benefit concert, June 4, 2017.

In the wake of Miller’s death, Grande disabled the comments on her recent Instagram posts after she received countless responses directing blame for the tragedy her way. 

On Sept. 8 she shared a sweet black-and-white photo of Miller without any accompanying text.

Four days after Miller’s death, thousands of fans gathered in his hometown of Pittsburgh to remember the rapper at Frick Park’s Blue Slide playground, which inspired the name of his first album.
