Voynov takes plea, gets 90 days in jail plus probation
I asked her how she got it and she said she bumped into the wall. That made no sense. I pressed her and she said her husband had shoved her against the wall and then she admitted it was very rougher than that. It also wasn't the first time this had ...

One would expect a similar dynamic to work in pro sports. No, most people that own teams or play in the NBA don't (or shouldn't need to) live check to check. Yet the need for comfort and happiness often supercedes the creative tension dynamic that occurs everywhere in pro sports, when talented and ego-tastic personalities meet and often clash. There was nothing natural about coach Tom Thibodeau's firing last week. Despite the usual gantlet of injuries that have become commonplace the last three seasons in Chicago -- more surgery for Derrick Rose , Mike Dunleavy , Jr. , missing a month, Joakim Noah never at full strength all season after offseason surgery --... And no one has had Rose's back more, through all the criticism he's received the last three seasons, than Thibodeau -- and vice versa. But Thibodeau was not fired because the Bulls lost to Cleveland in the conference semis, collapsing in Game 6 at home in an ugly loss. He was fired because vice president of basketball operations John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman were sick of (not) working with him, and did something about it. That's all. They were sick of arguing with him, sick of him not listening to them, sick of the joylessness in the organization and sick of not reaching one Finals during Thibodeau's tenure.
Purple reign: Standing as the decided underdogs, Gonzaga’s boys’ basketball team defied the odds in a double-overtime, instant classic WCAC championship. The victory marked Gonzaga’s first conference basketball title since 2008. Battlefield beats the buzzer: It appeared as if it would happen again. After scoring a goal in the final three minutes of regulation to force overtime and then maintaining that tie with Cox for nearly four extra periods, some members of defending Virginia 6A girls’ soccer champ Battlefield began to ready themselves... Over and out: Both Centreville’s football team and Westfield’s boys’ basketball team gave their all but in the end, four quarters wasn’t enough. In Centreville’s case, the Wildcats rallied from a 14-point deficit to force the first overtime in a Virginia 6A or AAA football championship since 1994 before falling just short of defending their title against Ocean Lakes. About three months later, Westfield needed three overtimes — the longest Virginia state basketball tournament game since 1980 — to hold off Landstown.
“To omit numbers and have an abstract object that moved on the wall was something no one was doing at the time,” he says. Once or twice a year he would design a group of about eight clocks, which would then be presented to Howard Miller and put into ...

Howard Miller Spokane Wall Clock, Brushed Aluminum
Amazing!!!! Was shocked that the product surpassed the price of the clock. Once on our kitchen wall it looks like it costs a couple hundred dollars. Love the retro look and the fact I can read the time. It replaced a clock that was difficult to read.
