Why not come dressed as your favorite Dodger and see if you can sneak through security.And don’t be spooked by the StubHub.com prices that have recently posted for Game 6. The lowest-priced seats at the very top of the reserved level far down by the foul poles are going for about $920-plus. The so-called “best value” is a $4,995 spot in the club section on the first-base line. There’s also a $25,000 dugout club seat in row AA if you wish – not you, Marlins Man.One thing we did notice during Games 1 and 2 at Dodger Stadium last week was how, at times, it didn’t seem to be “World Series” enough. Between innings, the video boards still had those trivial fan contests – find the ball under the baseball cap, and whatever they do with throwing ping-pong balls into a plastic cup – which feel more appropriate when you’re just trying to pass the time during a regular-season contest. There was far too many “Make Noise!” coaxing, as if the fans couldn’t figure it out. And all the celebrity shots in the stands. Really? Would it be too much to ask for a few more  historic World Series clips with Vin Scully narration from past Dodgers’ Fall Classic victories? Find a company to sponsor it. We’re sure they’d be happy to be associated with something a little more classy than sassy.NO. 2: HORSE RACING: 34th BREEDERS’ CUP Details/TV: At Del Mar Race Track, Friday and Saturday, NBCSN and Ch. 4The surf and turf meet the sport’s greatest day for the first time, venturing south of Santa Anita to put a spotlight on how Southern California remains in the game despite the loss of Hollywood Park.

But USC wrangled a 48-14 win behind five TD scores by Sam Darnold. Things have changed a bit. Tate had 275 yards passing, 146 yards rushing and accounted for three TDs in the Wildcats’ win over then-No. 15 Washington State on Saturday night. The Trojans can clinch (unofficially) the Pac-12 South, meaning they have head-to-head wins over their closest pursuers with just a few weeks left in the regular season. It’s USC’s homecoming game, and the No. 17 Trojans (7-2, 5-1) have a 5-0 record against the No. 23 Wildcats (6-2, 4-1) when both meet as AP Top 25 ranked teams.

Goalie Jonathan Quick is second in the NHL in goals-against (1.76) and save percentage (.946) and Drew Doughty leads in plus-minus (13), with the Maple Leafs’ 20-year-old center Austin Matthews second at 12 and fourth in goals with eight.Also this week for the Kings: Vs.

NAOMH CONAILL NOMINATE FORMER McGUINNESS COACH FOR COUNTY MANAGER’S JOB

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: NAOMH Conaill have nominated a Tyrone man to be the next manager of the Donegal Senior Football team.The Glenties club have put forward the name of their former manager Cathal Corey to take the county manager’s role.Mr Corey, a father of three who works as a sales rep for a national stove company, was the joint manager of Naomh Conaill with Jim McGuinness in 2009. The coach – nephew of Derry manager Brian McIvor –  took the club to the county title and an Ulster final against Crossmaglen in 2010.He is highly respected in the game, and in particular by Jim McGuinness.Up until now former Donegal No2 Rory Gallagher was being seen as the front runner for the position but Corey’s nomination is being seen as an ‘exciting’ development.His dedication to Donegal could be seen in an AIB promotional video taken on the day of the All-Ireland Final last month when he refused cash for his club in return for tearing up his match ticket. But he said he felt duped afterwards after the video appeared to show him rejecting the money.He said he was offered just €500, not €2,000, and that the video left out his offer to make the donation himself.He said he received abusive messages afterwards.“I said to him: look, I don’t have much money, but I’ll give my club €500 out of my own money, but I want to go see the match here today,” said Corey at the time, saying he was personal friends with McGuinness, Leo McLoone and the Thompson brothers.“They were friends of mine, and I wanted to go to that match. Leon Thompson offered me the tickets – they were their tickets they got for their family and good friends, and I didn’t want to miss the game.” But instead, he said the video (below) seemed to show him rejecting €2,000 for his Tyrone club so he can see Donegal play.Cathal said he thought nothing more of it until the following Tuesday, when he received a text message from a friend telling him he was right not to rip up his ticket. He had not seen the video that that point.“The second that I watched it and seen them giving your man a cheque for €2,000 I knew … the way people were going to be.”“It made it look like they had offered me and the other four or five people €2,000 – but that wasn’t the case. I knew I was going to get s***.” NAOMH CONAILL NOMINATE FORMER McGUINNESS COACH FOR COUNTY MANAGER’S JOB was last modified: October 17th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Cathal CoreydonegalGlentiesJim McGuinnessManagerNaomh Conailllast_img read more
