When Phish took over Madison Square Garden for 13 shows over a 17 night stretch, the area surrounding the famous Manhattan arena morphed into quite the interesting scene. The usual fray of Penn Station, one of the biggest commuter hubs in one of the biggest commuter cities in the world, mixed with the everyday buzz of midtown Manhattan, mixed with the already-lively atmosphere and ocean of fingers you’ll see in any “Phish lot” was a sight to behold, making passers-by understandably curious.Freak Out To Phish’s Cover Of Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” From Baker’s Dozen Night 1 [Video]If you were there at any point throughout the Baker’s Dozen, chances are someone came up to you with questions. “What are all these people doing camping out on 8th Avenue?” “What do all the little red circles on everything mean?” “Why does everyone have their finger in the air?” (note: my favorite response to that last one was “We’re doing a flash mob…”). Outsiders were fascinated by the circus, and many people from all walks of life dove into the subject like anthropologists, from local news reports to GQ Phish style galleries.Donut Sampler: Relive Phish’s Baker’s Dozen By Rewatching These Free Pro-Shot VideosMetal blog Metalsucks.net sent a reporter–the fantastically named Bloodbath McGrath–to the final show of the run to interview fans, feel out the party, and mainly ask the question, “Is there anybody here who knows anything about heavy metal? Or do they all just think that metal sucks?” You get the feeling that Bloodbath (which, we assume, is his given Christian name) expected to find a docile pack of happy hippies–the antithesis of everything heavy metal. But what he found was a bunch of funny, colorful, clever, and mischievously fun people with wide-ranging music tastes. Needless to say, Bloodbath McGrath left impressed with how Phish fans get down.

The upset-driven Orange jumped out to a fast start against a ranked team, something SU had not done all season long.Three minutes and two Boston College power-play goals later, the optimism vanished.Syracuse (2-7-2, 1-0-1 College Hockey America) has struggled to stop top opposition from scoring on the power play all season. While SU head coach Paul Flanagan has consistently preached more discipline on the penalty kill, the Orange ranks 23rd out of all 40 NCAA Division I teams. Prior to this weekend’s series with a Penn State team that has zero wins in six conference games, SU was No. 31 of 40.“There’s an old adage: your best penalty killer is your goalkeeper,” Flanagan said. “We need big saves from whoever is in net and we have to be more disciplined. Looking back at Boston College, we allowed a goal with only seven seconds left on the power play, and that’s frustrating.”With a 76.6 percent conversion rate on the penalty kill before the PSU series, Syracuse has fallen short often in large part due to these struggles. Against Boston College, the two power play goals shifted a possible 3-2 upset into a 4-3 win for the Eagles.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAndy Mendes | Digital Design EditorIn the series against Northeastern, two weeks before Boston College, the Huskies’ six power play scores in only two games turned what Flanagan called “an even-series in the five-on-five,” into consecutive four-goal losses for SU.With struggles on clearing the puck, Syracuse is giving more opportunities to the opposing attack, senior defender Megan Quinn said.Even with two weeks between the two matchups with Boston College and Northeastern — where it allowed ten power play goals — the Orange was unable to fix this issue.Leading up to the Penn State series, Flanagan adjusted his penalty-kill unit. Using different players, Flanagan tried to stop the struggles by keeping his unit well-rested.“We’re going to work with some other kids that typically do a lot of kills in practice when working on the power play,” Flanagan said. “Given our results and our (penalty-kill) percentage, we need to start utilizing more players.”The Orange started working on its penalty kill two days earlier than usual before PSU, putting an emphasis on blocking shots and deflecting passes, senior forward Alysha Burris said. And the changes seemed to have worked.In the two games against the Nittany Lions, SU dominated on the penalty kill, allowing only one goal on 18 opportunities. A sudden shift from its recent struggles, the Orange’s greater focus on preventing power play goals before the game allowed the team to find more success, Flanagan said.“We did a good job at getting in shooting and passing lanes and pressuring them this weekend,” senior goalkeeper Abby Miller said. “We were on them the entire time.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ read more

The starter sent the first of our 9 groups away 10 minutes early and we had a smooth, albeit a little slow, run with no other golf societies in sight. With this many players, we had enough to do three flights.The winner of A flight (0-13) and overall best score came from Simon Kendall, the only one to better his handicap. On a course that takes no prisoners, his 37 points was 4 points better than any other player.Tommy Marshall scraped together 31 points for second, just holding off the consistent Colin Smith on 30.Martin Patch scored 33 points to win B flight (14-21), three ahead of Niall Caven in second while Ian Pickles was a further three back in third.Ready to give up golf after some mediocre scores recently, John Anderson threw off the shackles for a winning 33 points in C flight (22 +). Second place was taken by our only lady golfer in the field, Helene Lindberg, who finished just in front of Rod Stevens in third.Near pins went to John Doyle, Paul Smith, Barry Wellings and Martin Patch.Best front nine for non-winners came from Bob Watson (17pts) and the back nine by Dane O’Brien, also 17 with points.Wednesday, Dec. 27, Pleasant Valley – Stableford1st Bob Rice (8) 42pts2nd Jim Reilly (16) 35pts3rd Pierre Cere (12) 35ptsFairways today were damp at Pleasant Valley so carts had to stick to the paths. We played ‘lift, clean and place’. Greens were in good condition, but obviously, being damp, were a little slower.Bob Rice left his clubs at home in the USA and hired a set from Links Bar. Having been away from Pattaya for some months, and with a handicap of just 8, Bob tore up the course with an excellent score of 42 points, to leave the rest in his wake.Playing from the blue tees, and with little run on the fairways the scores returned were on the lower end of the scale. However, two good scores followed Bob. Jim Reilly and Pierre Cere fought out a count-back on 35 points, with Jim edging in front for second spot.The best nines for non-winners came from Rod Stevens (front, 19pts) and Gerry Conway (back, 17pts).Friday, Dec. 29,King Naga – StablefordA Flight1st Wayne Peppernell (14) 32pts2nd Steve Truelove (10) 32pts3rd John Doyle (10) 32ptsB Flight1st Helene Lindberg (23) 35pts2nd Rod Stevens (24) 30pts3rd Mikael Lindberg(23) 29ptsThe society closed down 2017 with a visit to the newly renamed King Naga course and found all the features of the former Rayong CC/Great Lakes still intact – the fully grassed fairways, the barren rough, the slowish greens and the spartan clubhouse.There were two flights cut at sixteen and under and in the top flight five golfers ended the round with 32 points each. Invoking the count-back rule saw John Doyle in third place with Steve Truelove being runner up to Wayne Peppernell, who ended his maiden player of the month adventure with this success.In the second flight scores were similar with Mikael Lindberg taking third place with 29 points, only one behind runner-up Rod Stevens on 30. The best score of the day was recorded by Swedish lady Helene Lindberg and her 35 points gave her not only bragging rights over husband Mikael but also a fine victory to end the year.Consolation prizes went to Gerd Reidler (best front nine, 18) and Tony Browne (best back nine, 17) and the opportunities to take birdie honours with a “twos” challenge were spurned by all the golfers.
