2016: Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

1. Denver Broncos (3-0)
The little known quarterback from the Northwestern University, Trevor Siemian, is making a name for himself.  The Super Bowl winning defense has picked up from where they left off in 2015.

2. Minnesota Vikings (3-0)
Lost is Adrian Peterson, but the Vikings are no longer reliant on his presence as in year's past, The Vikings stifled the Carolina Panthers in week 3, who were averaging 40+ points per game.

3. New England Patriots (3-0)
It's the next man up approach at quarterback in New England and with Tom Brady returning after a week 4, the Patriots survived what some prognosticators thought would be a 1-3 start to the season before Brady's return.

4. Green Bay Packers (2-1)
Aaron Rodgers was firing on all cylinders in week 3 with a victory at home over the lowly, Detroit Lions. Rodgers threw for four touchdowns in the first half and the game was nearly in the books, until things got close late.  The Packers defense has its issues, time will tell.

5. Philadephia Eagles (2-1)
Where is North Dakota State University?  Just ask Carson Wentz. The rookie has taken over the reigns in Philly and has the city on his side with his teams convincing week 3 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wentz has yet to throw an interception and the defense has given up the fewest points in the league.

6. Baltimore Ravens (3-0)The wins for the Ravens haven't been pretty, but nonetheless they're undefeated.  They've had a soft schedule, yes, but maybe they have just been playing down to the opponents level. A tougher test in week 4 when they play the up and coming Oakland Raiders.

7. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1)Ugly loss at Philadelphia with the offense just tallying 3 points. Ouch! Quarterback Ben Roethelisberger was under duress and completed less than 55 percent of his passes.

8. Dallas Cowboys (2-1)How about them Cowboys? Dallas is finally learning how to play a football game without Dak Prescott, or maybe it's the fact that they finally have a back-up quarterback. Prescott is in the early Rookie of Year running, ranked highly in the QBR.

9. Oakland Raiders (2-1)
I have liked this team out of the gates, Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback and they have the right man running the ship in Head Coach, Jack Del Rio. The Raiders will have a tough test week 4 as they take on the unbeaten, Baltimore Ravens. It could be a track meet, both defenses have struggled at times early in the season.

10. Carolina Panthers (1-2) Losses to a pair of Super Bowl contenders (Minnesota and Denver), legitimizes their reason to be in the top 10. Cam Newton was sacked 9 times versus the Vikings in week 3.

Others Receiving Consideration: Kansas City Chiefs (2-1), Arizona Cardinals (2-1), Seattle Seahawks (2-1)

8th Place finish at 10K in Chestertown, N.Y.

8th Place finish at 10K in Chestertown, N.Y.

September 27, 2016

Surprisingly, I ran my first 10K and completed with a time of 47:40, with an average pace of 7:41 per mile. 

It was a brisk 52 degree morning in the small town in upstate New York, just south of Lake Placid, where miracles happen. The race started and finished at Town Hall on Route 9. The run was beautiful, through the heart of the village.

With less than a 2 weeks remaining before my second running of the Twin Cities Marathon, i'm inching closer to a sub 3:30:00 final marathon time.  That's my goal!

I completed my first Marathon

On October 4, 2015 I participated in the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and completed with a time of 4:20:49.  It was my first time participating in a Marathon and my goal all along was just to finish the race, time wasn't my greatest concern, although I was shooting for under 4 hours.

It was the longest continued distance I had ran, my training was limited as the longest stretch run that I had was 11 miles, which took place back in the spring of year.

It was surely a test of fortitude as I approached the 21-mile mark when my leg began to cramp, which I was told all along will likely occur.  I hit "the wall", as it's so often coined, but I persevered.

What I remarkable experience, certainly one that I will remember for a lifetime.  My family was waiting for me near the finish line and it was a joy to see them, as they have supported my new hobby.

It is definitely not going to be my only marathon.  I now know what I need to do to improve my time, train harder.

Athletics punch ticket to state tournament

Welcome back.

For a second straight season the Delano Athletics are returning to the Class C Minnesota state amateur baseball tournament.

The Athletics (21-9) secured a spot to state with a 7-2 win over the Maple Plain Diamond Devils Saturday afternoon in the Region 12C baseball tournament.

Though the Athletics secured a spot in the state tournament, they will continue regional play on Friday, August 14 versus the Howard Lake Orphans at 7:30 p.m. at Delano Municipal Baseball Park. Delano will be playing for state tournament seeding, and will be looking at securing the number one overall seed from the region.

Delano got things started early as they have often this season jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning.  Kevin Jaunich led off with a walk and Toby Hanson singled to right field and Jaunich advanced to third on a hit-and-run. Joey Althoff hit a sacrifice fly to left field scoring Jaunich from third. John Magee singled to right advancing Hanson to third.  Trevor Jaunichsingled to score Hanson.

Delano maintained a 2-0 lead through six innings while starting Athletics pitcher Jake Gleason was cruising and kept the Diamond Devils in check, however, with 2-outs in the top of the sixth inning Maple Plain would rally to tie the game 2-2.

In the bottom of the sixth the Athletics would bounce back to regain the lead with a five run outburst, keyed by a triple byJohn Magee that plated a pair of runs. 

Gleason picked up the win for the Athletics on the hill, tossing 6 1/3 innings, giving up two runs on six hits. In relief, Matt Arens returned to the mound after missing four weeks with a upper body injury and was effective.  Arens pitched 2 2/3 innings and gave up only one hit.

Offensively the Athletics were led by Magee, who finished the game, 3-4 with 2-RBIs.

The state amatuer baseball tournament begins August 21, hosted by Cold Spring and Watkins.
