first_imgThe unfortunate news left Twiddle Lesh-less, but some Bay Area musicians stepped up and joined in for the occasion. Guitarists Dan Lebowitz and Grahame Lesh – Phil’s son – both made their way to sit in with Twiddle, as did keyboardist Todd Stoops. The band closed out their set with an all-too-appropriate cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Eyes Of The World,” emotionally ending a great performance.Check out videos of “Every Soul” featuring Dan Lebowitz and Todd Stoops, as well as “Eyes Of The World” featuring Todd Stoops and Grahame Lesh, streaming below via Must Have Media.

Danger of guns in homes

first_img Read Full Story Parents with guns in the house should assume their children are aware of the firearms – and possibly have even touched them, according to David Hemenway, professor of health policy and director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).“Just like parents don’t think kids know where the Christmas presents are hidden, the same is true for guns,” he said in a January 28, 2014 interview on ParentMap.com. In studies in which pediatricians asked parents about their children’s knowledge of and experience with guns in the home, most parents didn’t think their kids knew there were guns at home. One-third of the boys, however, reported they had already played with the hidden weapons.last_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires If you listen to Doug & Wolf, you know I love stats. ESPN Stats & Info just produced a great piece on the Seahawks at Cardinals game.If you want the whole link, here it is. If you want just the highlights, keep reading.ESPN Stats & Info: The Seahawks are just 5-6 on the road over the last two regular seasons. In road games this season, the Seattle defense is allowing opposing quarterbacks a 69 Total QBR. That means the average quarterback playing at home against Seattle is basically producing at a Pro Bowl level this year.I’m not a huge fan of the QBR because it has a ton of subjective qualities yet I see the value of this info. Russell Wilson has never lost a home game but look at the road record. The defense stat is stark on QB rating. It shows the enormous affect the crowd noise has on Seattle’s opponents. You take that crowd noise away and the defense goes from “stellar” to “solid.” ESPN Stats & Info: Wilson has attempted 65 throws off play action this season, the second-highest total in the league, and his 93.5 Total QBR on such throws ranks behind only Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers.Important point because it shows Wilson isn’t a total dog as QB but he’s a little over-hyped after his successful rookie season. Take away Marshawn Lynch and you’ve taken away a great deal of Wilson’s effectiveness.ESPN Stats & Info: Carson Palmer has more interceptions (five) than touchdowns (four) when throwing to Fitzgerald this season. When Kurt Warner throws to Larry Fitzgerald the Cardinals TD/INT ratio is +19 but when the other 8 Cardinal QBs since Warner’s retirement throw to Fitz the number goes to -10.I think we all understand. The bad QBs force the ball to Fitz because they panic and don’t read coverage. Warner forced teams to cover everyone because he was willing to throw to anyone, therefore passes to Fitz weren’t forced.ESPN Stats & Info: Over the last two seasons, the Cardinals are 1-7 against their fellow NFC West teams, the worst divisional record of any team in the NFL. However, the only win was the aforementioned win over the Seahawks in last season’s Week 1.Remember when Michael Bidwill said that he fired Whisenhunt because he was worried the Cardinals were falling behind the rest of the division? It’s hard to argue the point. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   Top Stories ESPN Stats & Info: Lynch has 487 rushing yards this season, the third-most in the NFL. He’s done a large part of his work in the first quarter with 231 of those rushing yards (more than 47 percent) coming in the first quarter.This goes back to the Wilson play-action stats. LBs and DBs are much more disciplined at the beginning of a game. If Wilson starts a ton of play-action in the first quarter, it won’t be totally believable because Lynch hasn’t started gashing. Every team thinks they have a plan to stop Lynch. Panic doesn’t set in until they realize the plan didn’t work. Panic by the defense leads to play-action by the offense.We all know a huge key to the game is protecting Carson Palmer with the assumption protection will lower his turnover totals. Protecting Palmer is far and away the number one issue. It could be argued the second thing to study in this game, based on ESPN Stats & Info, is how well the Cards handle Lynch in the first quarter. If Lynch ends the 1st quarter with 50 or more yards rushing, it’s the 7 that will go up instead of the 1 in the recent NFC West division games for the Cardinals.last_img read more
