I didn't get to see any football games last night because somebody has to put the sports section together. But the scores were interesting. Woonsocket hammered Central 34-14 and Tolman squeaked by Westerly, 6-0. All you can say, at first glance, is Tolman probably drew the tougher opponent in the quarterfinals.
Lincoln School hosted a press conference this morning for senior basketball star Corinne Coia, the 6-foot-4 center from North Smithfield. Corinne signed her letter of intent to attend the University of Rhode Island. Her parents, Jay and Corey, sat by her side and inked their names to the document as well.
ESPN is telling us the Minnesota Vikings released Randy Moss today, less than a month after they gave New England a third-round draft choice for the future Hallof Famer.
Speculation is Randy sealed his fate by telling the world how much he loved the Patriots before and after yesterday's game. Minnesota coach Brad Childress is coming off a tough week, after failing to challenge a disputed TD in last week's loss to Green Bay, and then having to baby-sit Bret Favre all week. So when Moss came off the field after meeting with all of his Patriots friends, Childress must have been seething.
The Division II football playoff field should come into sharper focus after today's games are concluded. Woonsocket meets Mount Hope this afternoon and if the Villa Novans can prevail, they will improve to 5-1 in the regular season with only a home game with winless West Warwick left on their schedule.
Tolman has already clinched the No. 1 seed with a 6-0 record after beating Ponaganset in a good football game on Friday night, 26-10. The Tigers led 6-3 at halftime and had their hands full on defense with a Ponaganset team that showed a good mixture of running and throwing the football.
Some things I think I think:
-- Bill Mulholland will soon be taking us back in time on his local cable access television show, "Good Sports With Bill Mulholland."
Mulholland, who writes a daily Blackstone Valley Memories brief for this newspaper, will interview two legendary area football stars -- Pawtucket natives Larry Caswell and Frank Geiselman, who starred as quarterback and receiver for Tolman High and the University of Rhode Island back in the 1960s, setting records wherever they went.
Muholland will interview the two for an early November telecast. Stay tuned for more details.
