My Years with the Cavs Cleveland Sports Hall of Famer Austin Carr is ready to “throw the hammer down” at the Music Box! Known by Cavs basketball fans as “Mr. Cavalier,” Austin Carr will be sharing stories of his years with the Cavs, beginning with the first overall selection in the 1971 NBA Draft. Follow Austin’s journey as he grows from an NBA Rookie to NBA All Star, and finally onto his career as the Director of Community Relations for the Cavs and beloved commentator for Fox Sports Ohio.
 
Austin Carr Bio

Austin Carr is a retired professional basketball player who played in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, and Washington Bullets. He is known by Cleveland basketball fans as “Mr. Cavalier.” He was part of the Notre Dame team which defeated the UCLA Bruins on January 19, 1971, which was UCLA’s last defeat until being beaten by Notre Dame exactly three years later, breaking the Bruins’ NCAA men’s basketball record 88-game winning streak. Carr holds NCAA tournament records for most points in one game (61 vs. Ohio in 1970), most field goals in one game (25), and most field goals attempted in one game (44). His record scoring average of 50 points per game in seven NCAA playoff games may never be broken. Recently, ESPN named Carr the 22nd greatest college basketball player of all time.

Carr moved onto the professional ranks as the first overall selection of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 1971 NBA draft. His career with the Cavs is highlighted by his selection to the 1972 NBA All-Rookie Team, 1974 All Star Team, and finally the Cleveland Sports Hall of Fame. Today, Carr serves as the Director of Community Relations for the Cavaliers and is also a color commentator on the team’s broadcasts on Fox Sports Ohio. Carr’s #34 is one of seven jerseys retired by the Cavaliers.
 
The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.

Football Apparel Through The Years

Football Apparel Through The Years

Football apparel has changed dramatically since its early days in the 1800s. There was a time when teams didn’t even wear matching shirts – they simply showed up in what they had available and kept track of teammates by face instead of by number. Through the decades, the ideas of football uniform designs have undergone several distinct changes. Patterns, colors, and fabrics have also seen dramatic changes since the earliest days of the sport. The original ragtag mob of football players has evolved into the polished, high-tech fashions of today.

The Early Days
When football apparel first began to be organized and developed, it was a pretty practical affair. Players were expected to purchase their own kits, so the materials were relatively inexpensive, and there was no real uniform look between different teams. The creative diversity of today’s football kits are direct descendants of this early period when the uniform qualified as long as each team had a distinct look. Bright colors were used so that teams could quickly identify one another across the large pitch, and the vertical stripe pattern that was so common was mainly to differentiate football teams from the horizontal stripes of rugby teams.

Post-War Woes
After World War II, European football teams did not have the resources to create new football apparel. Rationing during and after the war meant that fabric was scarce, so the teams worked with the materials they could come up with. Some teams wore cast offs from other sports – including sets of rugby shirts that were sometimes donated. Sometimes a philanthropic football fan would outfit his favorite team in relatively new gear that he bought and had made himself. Eventually the economy of Western Europe improved, and football teams could afford to outfit themselves in their own unique styles once again.

The Mid-20th Century
Football apparel went through some large shifts once manmade synthetic materials became available. One of the most noticeable differences was that players began to wear their names across their back shoulders, above the numbers. The flexibility of these new materials meant that football shirt designers could create almost any color combination and pattern they could think of – and the shirts were less expensive. The 1960s and 70s were a minimalist time, so football kits were usually made from one solid color for the shirt, shorts, and socks.

Today’s Trends
During the 1980s to the present day, football apparel has increased the number of complex colors and designs that are in use. Computer-themed designs are very popular. Some of the newest designs make it seem that the players are wearing armor. Some team shirts have patterns that aren’t based on color, but are based on the gloss or matte effect of the material. Commercialization has also changed the designs of many football shirts. Sponsor logos are very common these days, with some teams wearing the names of their sponsors in large letters across their chests. Other teams tend toward a more conservative sponsor display, incorporating the sponsor logo into their traditional shirt designs.

Q&A: DNA test exonerates Dallas man jailed for 25 years. Your thoughts?

Question by ko_Oties: DNA test exonerates Dallas man jailed for 25 years. Your thoughts?
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080919/ap_on_re_us/dna_exoneration;_ylt=Ao.jzDLgh0f90fnhHIbbwXBH2ocA

This poor man had his life taken away from him for 25 years! 🙁
Johnnie Earl Lindsey said he wrote six letters to a Dallas County court seeking post-conviction DNA testing that could prove his innocence. All six were ignored, he said. “I couldn’t get nobody to hear my case,” said Lindsey, 56. “Once I could get someone to pay attention to what’s going on, there was no doubt in my mind I would be exonerated.”

That day came Friday, about a week after testing on DNA evidence from a rape kit taken after a 1981 sexual assault of a Dallas woman excluded Lindsey as the source.”State District Judge Larry Mitchell released Lindsey on a personal recognizance bond and recommended the state Court of Criminal Appeals overturn the rape conviction. Lindsey will be considered officially exonerated once the higher court accepts the recommendation or if Gov. Rick Perry grants a pardon.

Mitchell, who was credited by Lindsey for being the first court official to take an interest in his case, delivered an impassioned apology from the bench.

“I can’t tell you how sorry I am this happened to you. Your freedom was taken away from you for all these years,” Mitchell said. “There’s a saying that justice delayed is justice denied. Justice was delayed for too long in your case.”

And all the Judge can say is “I’m sorry” that ( o _ 0 ) you were wrongly accused, and lost 25 years of your life because of a mistake in the beaurocratic red tape in the State of Texas.

Best answer:

Answer by IN THE PINK BOOGIE
Kooties, I was looking at wrongful convictions the other day and you would be surprised at the injustices at the hand of the justice system. Money talks. If you got it you can fight it if you don’t then you lose so much. I feel so bad for people in these situations.
