CONGRATULATIONS to Chris Bunch as he
has inked with Parkland College. Also, to Matthew Stoltzenburg, who
was named District 15 Coach of the Year!
The St. Louis Cardinals pulled out an
epic 7-6 win over the Florida Marlins at Pro Player Stadium on
Sunday. The win enabled the Birds to take the series, to move one
game under the .500 mark and most importantly move within two games
of the Cubs. Fernando Vina, who had gone 0-for-9 in the game, not
the series, went from goat to hero as he knocked in the winning run.
Hopefully, that will get him and his mates started back in the right
direction. The Redbirds will be entertaining the pond scum,
otherwise known as the New York Mets, starting on Tuesday.
Illinois' Eugene Wilson was drafted by
the New England Patriots after the Bears passed on him. Don't know
what the thinking was there, as he seems like an excellent fit for
them. Brandon Lloyd went to San Francisco, as the Niners are
anticipating pass catching needs. Two Illini O-lineman went in the
fifth round, as Dave Diehl ended up with the Giants in New York and
Tony Pashos was selected by the Baltimore Ravens. And the Carolina
Panthers nabbed Walter Young in the seventh round. After the two-day
draft event was over four more Illini inked free agent deals, with
Greg Lewis to Philadelphia, Antoineo Harris to San Diego, Aaron
Moorehead to Indianapolis and Jerry Schumacher to the Bears!

All in all, it was a great weekend for
Fighting Illini gridders. While I'm happy to see them realize their
dreams in the NFL, I am sad to see them go, as I get way too
attached to them while they are playing for us! They have all
treated the LDN staff with great respect as they have given us
tremendous accessibility. The LDN wishes them all great success at
the next level!
How 'bout that Fred Couples winning the
Houston Open? It's great to see a superstar coming back, after
injuries and losing his edge, to recapture the swing and return to
glory. Judging by the fans' reactions, they were glad to see him
back on top!
Have a great
