Not every athlete goes out on their own terms

January 30, 2011

I’m not a fan of his music, but Elton John’s “Candle In The Wind” has been embedded in my mind ever since Rocco Baldelli announced his retirement last week. The ballad has long been viewed as John articulating his feelings for the song’s subject, Marilyn Monroe, through the power of song. Still, there’s one portion of the chorus that I feel best sums up Baldelli’s career – as well as other athletes who call it a career sooner than expected:

Your candle burned out long before —
Your legend ever did.

Cranston East too much for Woonsocket hoopsters

January 28, 2011

WOONSOCKET – With 10 losses in his first 11 league games, Kyle Ivey-Jones isn’t thinking about playoffs anymore. The Woonsocket High coach would just settle for a win.

Twenty-four turnovers by the Novans and a dominating inside presence from the Thunderbolt were the glaring statistics in the latest setback.
The loss dropped Woonsocket to 1-11 in I-North and officially knocked them out of the playoffs.
