As the seller explains the strange piece of memorabilia in their Ebay post (which, surprisingly, comes with what appear to be actual photos of them, because this is somehow actually a thing): “The Donut was immediately frozen, then freeze dried. Treated with color preservatives and clear vinyl compound then set in a polyester plastic compound. Total of 4 week process. The majority of these donuts were eaten immediately. This is a very rare piece and will last… forever.”Still not exactly sure how we feel about this one. It’s definitely super weird, but also kinda cool? Either way, we’re pretty sure that some crazy enthusiastic Phish fan is gonna end up buying at least one of them. People are strange…don’t think too much about it.[h/t – SPIN] Phish fans loved the Baker’s Dozen. They loved the themed setlists, and the no repeats and, of course, they loved the donuts. As we all know, Phish gave away a different flavor of donut to the early arrivers at each of their 13 performances at Madison Square Garden, and then catered that evening’s setlist to reference the donut du jour.Watch Phish Debut “Sunshine Of Your Feeling,” The Boston/Cream Combo That Inspired The Baker’s DozenThose who attended the Baker’s Dozen know how rare and coveted these official pastries were each night. And a lot of people didn’t end up getting one. That’s just how it goes. But one fan apparently really loved the Baker’s Dozen donuts, so much so that they went to great lengths to procure and preserve them, and are now selling them for a pretty penny online.According to a new set of posts on Ebay, user mstrjollo is selling actual Baker’s Dozen donuts encased in a plastic see-through shadow-box complete with engraved plinths bearing the date and “flavor” of the show–for hundreds of dollars.
Alex Bono’s jersey was filthy by the end of Saturday night.Between the slippery conditions and Notre Dame’s explosive offense, Bono spent a lot of time making diving saves and lunging for loose balls.Bono was met with 21 shots, the most the Syracuse goalkeeper has faced all season. Despite surrendering four goals, Bono kept Syracuse in the game late in the second half before Notre Dame went on a scoring surge to defeat the Orange 4-2.“Bono was fabulous,” SU defender Jordan Murrell said. “He keeps us firing. He made a few very good saves and kept us in it.”Head coach Ian McIntyre knew Notre Dame was a dominant offensive team coming into the game. After a sluggish first half for UND, McIntyre’s nightmares became a reality when the Irish attempted 12 shots in the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBono was up for the challenge, though. Notre Dame’s Max Lachowecki fired a laser toward the net in the 75th minute. The score was 2-2 at the time and it looked as if the Irish would take a 3-2 advantage.But Bono reacted instantaneously, lunging toward his right to punch the ball over the goal. Just a few minutes later, UND’s Patrick Hodan sent a finesse ball skirting through the box. Rather than sit back and wait for the shot, Bono pounced on the ball with authority right before it reached Kyle Richard’s foot.Ted Cribley was disappointed his team allowed four second-half goals. The senior captain said he was at a loss for words after the game, yet he said the loss was not Bono’s fault.“I think we had four defensive slips,” Cribley said. “They finished very well. We weren’t quite good enough in the second half.”Cribley said Syracuse did exactly what it wanted to in the first half, but Notre Dame snatched the momentum. Rather than panicking and frantically trying to score, UND remained calm. The Fighting Irish patiently and methodically tacked on goal after goal, until eventually the deficit was insurmountable for SU.“A lot of times teams will bomb the ball forward and hope that they’ll get a goal and get back in the game,” Cribley said. “They stuck with their game plan, so you take your hats off to them.”That impeccable execution made the night a very active one for Bono, who made four saves in the second half.“When you go to the Big East, the margin from the first to the fifth team in the conference is that slim,” Bono said. “When you bring Notre Dame in here and their RPI is 1 and they’re a top-10 team, you have to expect they’re going to be one of the best teams you’ve played all season.”As Notre Dame scored goal after goal, Bono’s temperament didn’t waver. He remained composed, despite the bright lights and the pressure of playing in his first Big East tournament game.“If you look back and you see your keeper and he’s down, everyone else gets down,” Bono said. “So you’ve got to try and stay composed and stay positive for the sake of the team, even though it’s very frustrating.”McIntyre said Bono responded well, despite conceding the four goals. He said his team got slightly too confident and complacent after taking a 2-0 lead, and said the game unraveled a little bit after Notre Dame scored its third goal.He hopes Syracuse can continue to host postseason games in the future, and that Saturday night’s game was yet another step in the pursuit of consistently generating high-intensity, exhilarating games at SU Soccer Stadium.“That was a national tournament-caliber game,” McIntyre said. “When you’re taking on a team as talented as Notre Dame, perhaps we were a little bit naive. These are the exciting games. This is why we do what we do.”Playing in his first postseason game as a freshman, Bono hopes there are many more primetime games to come in his three remaining years at Syracuse. He also hopes there’s more in store for the Orange this season, as the team has to wait until Nov. 12 to see if it will earn an NCAA bid.“It was awesome,” Bono said. “To be a part of the history was awesome. It would have been better to win. At the end of the day we have to look to ourselves for that one.” Comments Published on November 6, 2012 at 2:38 am Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+
Ghana Defender John Paintsil has launched an astonishing public attack on Henrietta, the ex-wife of John Mensah, warning her to stay away from his marriage.The South Africa-based right-back said recent media reports that his wife Richlove Paintsil was seeking a divorce was concocted by Henrietta who was instigating his wife to follow in her footsteps of divorcing her husband.Henrietta and ex-Ghana captain John Mensah divorced this year after a bitter battle.It was reported last week that Richlove had filed for divorce, but John Paintsil refused to sign the court papers which brought into sharp focus the growing menace of Ghanaian footballers’ wives ditching or betraying their husbands.Paintsil said Richlove, who is a close friend of Henrietta’s, knew nothing about the publication and insisted that Mensah’s ex-wife was trying to sow a seed of discord in his family.”I think my wife knows nothing about the publication which came out; because I have called her and she told me it is rather Mrs. Mensah, ex-wife of John Mensah, who sent the story to the media,” John Paintsil told Metro FM. “If she and her husband have divorced, that doesn’t mean she should force my wife to do the same.”The Ghanaian defender warned Henrietta to stay away from his marriage, as he and his wife were not on the verge of divorce, even though there were issues in the marriage.”I am therefore advising ner to stay away from my family for us to enjoy our freedom, because there is nothing like divorce on our minds,” Paintsil told Metro FM.”If there are any issues I need to sort out with my wife, it should be out of court or media because we never got married in the court room, but rather it should be solved at home”, he said.Meanwhile, Henrietta has expressed shock at the allegations being leveled against her by Paintsil In a telephone interview with DAILY GUIDE SPORTS yesterday, she said, “I was surprised when I heard my name in the Paintsils’ issue. Honestly, we are friends but I can say for a fact that I am innocent in this matter. ^”I can understand where Paintsil is coming from. His wife and myself are friends including he John himself, but the fact that we are friends doesn’t make me an influence in their nterital issue.”Paintsil knows my number and I expected that he would have called at least to crosscheck from me. I was very < surprised when somebody told me about Paintsil's false accusation in the media," she added.A growing number of Ghanaiar players are having serious marita problem, with over 8 divorced, while Nii Odartey Lamptey discovered through a DNA test that all his three children were not biologically his.
Well, we are officially in the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season as the remnants of hurricane Cristobal continue to dump rain along the Gulf coast.Cristobal is the earliest third storm to be named in the Atlantic hurricane season.Compared with the worst storm to hit South Florida, Hurricane Andrew, which started off the season in August of 1992. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/episode-58-wicked-killer-terrorist-mother-nature/id1460268436?i=1000477159252Hurricane Andrew was a powerful and destructive Category 5 Atlantic hurricane that struck the Bahamas, Florida, and Louisiana in August 1992.On August 24, Andrew struck Elliott Key with winds of 165 mph (266 km/h) and a pressure of 926 mbar (27.34 inHg).About 25 minutes after its first Florida landfall, Andrew made another landfall just northeast of Homestead, with a slightly lower pressure of 922 mbarThis barometric pressure made Andrew the most intense hurricane to strike the United States since Hurricane Camille in 1969 and the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall in Florida since the Labor Day hurricane of 1935.The United States and Florida would not experience another landfall from a hurricane at Category 5 intensity until Hurricane Michael in 2018 which wiped out portions of the Florida panhandle.Andrew was so strong it blew the wind meter off the roof of the National Hurricane Center which at the time was located in Coral Gables.The NHC then moved its facility west, miles inland near the Everglades to prevent any future direct hits.Andrew caused major damage in the Bahamas and Louisiana, but the greatest impact was felt in South Florida, where the storm made landfall as a Category 5 hurricane, with 1-minute sustained wind speeds as high as 165 mph.Passing directly through the city of Homestead with wind gusts up to 177 mph, Andrew stripped many homes of all but their concrete foundations. In total, Andrew destroyed more than 63,500 houses, damaged more than 124,000 others, caused $27.3 billion in damage, and left 65 people dead.The cities of Florida City, Homestead, Cutler Ridge and parts of Kendall received the brunt of the storm. As many as 1.4 million people lost power at the height of the storm; some for more than one month. In the Everglades, 70,000 acres of trees were downed, while invasive Burmese pythons began inhabiting the region after a nearby facility housing them was destroyed.The 1992 Atlantic hurricane season was a well below average hurricane season that had one of the latest dates on record for the first named storm.There were only six named storms, with Andrew being the only major hurricane. But as the head of the National Hurricane Center always says, “it just takes one.”
