Professional Tailgating: Let's Get to your Seats

I'm one of the more positive Rutgers fans out there but Saturday something happened that annoyed me. Let's get to our seats before the game started. With a nation audience watching on ESPN News, the game kicked off in a more than half empty stadium. This should not happen. It looks bad.

Professional Tailgating: Going Home

Saturday the gang headed to William Paterson for their annual homecoming celebration. The Pioneers won their game and we had some fun. 

Nothing says Pioneers like a bear mascot
Good sausage 
Nothing says homecoming like cupcakes 
A little different than a Big Ten game 
It's always great to see the water tower

Professional Tailgating: Cup Final Day

For the first time, I attended a competitive Philadelphia Union match but it may have been the biggest in their history. The Union played the Sounders in the final of the US Open Cup. Here are some of sights.

It's a Cup Final


I have not been to a Philadelphia Union game but tomorrow that changes as I head to US Open Cup final vs. Seattle Sounders. Can't wait.

Professional Tailgating: We're here

So Rutgers played their first Big Ten game last night and rest of the conference was treated to Classic Gary Nova. Here are some of the sights from Rutgers first conference game.

Prospect Plus: Summer's Best

It's been a busy summer for Only Time Will Tell. Baseball games in three different states, two trips and ton of golf. But over the summer, I've been able to see some of the best prospects in baseball in the South Atlantic League and the Florida State League.

Here are the list of the top prospects I've seen during my travels this summer:

  1. Dominic Smith, 1B, Savannah (SAL): The former Mets first round pick looks the part of major league power hitter despite just being a year out of high school. Smith is still a couple of years away but could be the power bat the Mets have been waiting for. 
  2. Adam Brett Walker, OF, Fort Myers (FSL): While there is the concern of a college player still playing in the Florida State League, Walker has both the power and the speed that scouts crave. When we say him he had an inside the park home run. A week or so earlier he won the home run derby at the All Star game. 
  3. JP Crawford, SS, Lakewood (SAL): The former first round pick of the Phillies really grew during his second year in pro ball. Last year he looked over matched, but now he seems like he has a solid bat to go along with his plus glove.

Professions Tailgating: A taste before the main course

So Rutgers beat Howard today in a sloppy game but now we can focus on what we all want to focus on that school from Pennsylvania. Here are some sights from today's game.

The New Look United

We new that there would be big changes at Manchester United this season but none of us thought the squad would look like this. Wow. This has been a watershed transfer window for the club. The Glazers, to their credit, have put their money where their mouth is. 

With all of the new pieces here is how I think United will lineup when the Premier League returns in two weeks. 

This has look of a very good starting 11. I think that they could go 4-3-1-2 but it could morph into anything.
