Spotted on Campus

Post by Trenchcoat Wally on Thu Nov 20, 2008 3:30 pm

OK- After the Pilots win on Saturday, this needs to commandeered and navigated to Northern Cal. OK- If Stanford loses, then maybe we can just use it as the local Portland Pilot Party Bus. (PPPB)

Now THAT is pretty cool. Now they don't have to ride the short bus when traveling...

And I agree. ROAD TRIP!

Had some dialog with the driver. I just love to talk about bus engines. I asked his if he had floored it yet. He said "No, but he looks forward to it"

From what I understand, he was soon to depart with the team to visit the fan that was injured after the last game. Pilot Soccer team ...class act!

Yeah... definitely very sad. I don't know a lot of details, but I heard it was a pretty young girl - like middle school age.

I think she is OK, but she was in the hospital for at least a little while.

I just told my daughter that the whole Pilot team went to visit the injured girl. Her response was "I'm going to get injured so that they'll come and visit me." Based on that comment, I think that she has the makings of a true Pilot fan.

Okay that bus is pretty sweet. I'm thinking we borrow it for an evening, and do either a Lombard St. bar crawl, or even better a Pilot Nation Portland Microbrew Tour... They wouldnt mind, right?

Here is what happens when someone rides the party bus too much.
Poor calculation on where to stand for a throw-in.

Not sure why people think those things are funny. That could very easily be a serious concussion. That kid throwing the ball should have been given atleast a yellow and his coach should bench him for the remainder of the game. That type of throw in serves absolutely no purpose other than to showboat.

Doesn't it get a whole lot more distance for getting the ball in the goalmouth?

When I played,I encountered a few people who threw like that. It always went pretty dang far. "If ye stand in front of ball being kicked or thrown, be prepared to get thumped".

Sci Fi- I'm not sure of who would think it was funny; simply an educational tool on where not to stand when encountering a flip thrower.

ME! http://www.pilotnation.net/general-discussion-f3/ha-t1539.htm and this guy REALLY gets thumped... it is his fault, he should back up... it is not like he does not know he is going to throw it like that... just like when the guy stands right in front of somebody trying to take their free kick...

Standing in front of the thrower serves no purpose. If you touch it, most likely it will go back out of bounds. If not, you are out of position. If you jump and block the throw with anypart of your body it is a free kick and possibly a yellow card. you might as well move away from the ball and mark a player.

I agree with all of you. I doubt very much that the Thrower hit the guy on purpose, and there is definitely a purpose in that type of throw - more distance. It's not showboating, or at least not COMPLETELY showboating. The hittee should not have been there.
