Considering the popularity of
Final Fridays, locals can easily
recognize the community sup-
port for the arts in Lawrence. Te
Lawrence Arts Center just has to
prove it to ArtPlace, a collabo-
ration of national and regional
foundations and banks, to win a
creative placemaking grant.
“ArtPlace looks for ways they
can help communities make the
most of this for the purpose of
increasing cultural tourism, in-
creasing support for artists and
including neighborhoods,” said
Susan Tate, the Executive Direc-
tor of Lawrence Arts Center.
As Lawrence is home to an
array of museums that educate
children, like the Lawrence Arts
Center and the Warehouse block,
the city’s fourishing arts scene
is a well-supported efort. Hav-
ing coordinated with local busi-
nesses, non-proft organizations
and Lawrence citizens for the
past year, Tate’s work to make
Lawrence a cultural destination
is paying of.
In February, the city commis-
sioners agreed to formally desig-
nate .78 square miles of Lawrence
as a cultural district. It is bounded
by the Kansas River, 15th Street,
Vermont and the Burroughs
Creek Trail. Tis alone, Tate said,
is signifcant — especially when
applications to grants like Art-
Place’s asks how a planned project
fts into the larger community.
“Tis matters to grantmakers,”
Tate said. “When an artist or an
art agency applies for a grant,
they’re interested in knowing
that they’re supporting some-
thing that is bigger than just the
With both undergraduate and
graduate students interning at lo-
cal, visual arts galleries, teaching
at local museums and performing
and exhibiting downtown, the
University is able to take advan-
tage of the cultural opportunities
ofered throughout the city.
“Te designation of Lawrence
as a cultural district will only
further those opportunities,” said
Elizabeth Kowalchuk, Associate
Dean of the School of the Arts at
Eforts like the Lawrence Arts
Center’s application for the Art-
Place grant further strengthens
and binds together artists. It also
creates even more opportunities
for University students to hone
their craf in the community,
“Lawrence is a very art-orient-
ed community,” Kowalchuk said.
“It’s one of a handful of similar
communities across the country
that have a major research insti-
tution and are very strong in the
Now, Lawrence is one of 105
national fnalists for the Art-
Place grant, which has awarded
around 40 fnalists grants be-
tween $150,000 and $500,000 in
With funding from ArtPlace,
the Lawrence Arts Center pro-
posal would commission Sans
façon, a duo of French architect
Charles Blanc and British sculp-
tor Tristan Surtees, for a public
art project. When Blanc and Sur-
tees take an interest in a city, Tate
said, they learn about the com-
munity and design their projects
to highlight its values.
“Tey have experience bring-
ing diferent parts of the com-
munity together to do something
that entities cannot do on their
own,” Tate said. “Tey put art at
the forefront of city planning and

With concealed carry permits
on campus approved by the Kansas
legislature this past Tuesday, stu-
dents learned more about gun pol-
icy issues in a debate hosted at Te
Dole Institute of Politics Wednes-
day evening. Te debate between
Patricia Stoneking, President of the
Kansas State Rife Association, and
Allen Rostron, professor of law at
the University of Missouri – Kan-
sas City, addressed diferent sides
of the arguments for and against
“If your fellow students are carry-
ing guns, you’re going to want to be
informed about the diferent rights
and restrictions that go along with
that privilege,” said Lexie Clark, co-
ordinator of the Student Advisory
Board for the Dole Institute. Clark,
a senior from Fort Collins, Colo.,
moderated the debate.
While Clark is personally in fa-
vor of gun advocacy, she found
Rostron’s representation of gun
control position an example of
reaching middle ground between
the two sides.
“To some extent, these issues do
turn on the extent to how people
feel about the government,” Ros-
tron said. “Gun rights are very
strongly protected, and I just don’t
see we are on the verge of confsca-
tion if we were to have a gun regis-
Stoneking pointed to the histori-
cal example of gun registration and
confscation in Hitler’s Germany
as a reason to protect gun rights,
and advocated more attention be
applied to the mental health com-
“Bad people do bad things, and
mentally ill people do bad things,”
Stoneking said. “Te tool that they
use is not what’s doing something
bad. It is the person who’s doing
While Stoneking said concealed
carry on campus cannot be proven
to improve campus safety due to
most university campus’s not yet
allowing permits, she did point to
Utah’s college campuses, which do
allow conceal carry permits, have
had no problems.
“We’ve heard over and over again
at colleges where they’ve had vio-
lence is these students say, ‘if only
I had a gun’,” Stoneking.
Rostron said few studies have
looked at the issue of conceal car-
ry on campus, but that a person’s
perspective on the issue largely
depends on their preconceived at-
“All that statistical evidence that’s
been generated about guns never
changes anyone’s mind,” Rostron
said of one study analyzing how
statistics afect a person’s view on
gun control. “Instead, people’s at-
titudes about guns are very heavily
driven by some fundamental un-
derlying views that they have about
the role of government in relation-
ship between people and society.”

Your ridiculous policy
proposals, racism and embrace-
ment of the extremism that’s tear-
ing apart the rest of the country
aren’t making you the easiest state
to call home.
I was a stone’s throw away from
being born a die-hard republican.
Maybe something in my DNA
would have turned me to a blue-
dog or some sort of bastardized,
liberal defector. In a state like
Kansas though, that’s a shot in
the dark. I’d be in denial if I didn’t
think my family’s moderate liberal
views didn’t shape mine.
Living in an oasis of liberalism
like Lawrence has coddled me. It’s
convenient not having to grease
Obama signs during election sea-
son so that people won’t uproot
them. Walking up to your car
and not having bumper stickers
scraped halfway of is a great perk,
but I’ve become pampered. It’s as if
Brownback doesn’t exist here and
he’s just the Wicked Witch of the
West(ern side of Kansas).
It’s disappointing, even frustrat-
ing, that when I mention that I’m
from Kansas to anyone, all I get
are grins and questions about the
cornfeld and evolution. Kansas,
the stunts you’ve pulled recently
aren’t helping that reputation of
bible-thumping hicks. It seems
like you aren’t even trying.
Te Salina Journal reported on
Saline County Commissioner Jim
Gile, who used the phrase “nigger-
rigging” candidly in a meeting
earlier this month. He then tried
to excuse it saying he wasn’t preju-
diced because he had, “built Habi-
tat homes for colored people.”
Te Wichita Eagle reported that
the Kansas Supreme Court ruled
the education funding of $3,838
a student unconstitutionally low.
Some conservative legislators have
suggested an amendment to the
constitution to continue to drasti-
cally underfund education. While
watching education funding dip to
new lows, Governor Brownback
intends on slashing the income tax
for the second time.
And then there’s House Bill No.
2366, an otherwise innocent num-
ber, but probably the single most
ridiculous piece of legislation I’ve
ever seen. Tis out-classes even
the racist policy relics from the
civil war. Tis bill would illegalize

implement sustainable develop-
Keep in mind that this is just a
proposition and it never even made
it onto the docket for deliberation.
While it won’t ever see the light of
day, it does refect an attitude in
Kansas’ politics that anything even
vaguely in public interest is a cog
in the socialist takeover machine
and must be destroyed.
Tis furry of news could each
be mistaken for stories in Te On-

I think for the entry-level col-
lege student who is just now fnd-
ing their liberal side, it’s easy to
start disliking the Sunfower state.
I mean the weather’s decided by an
eight ball, and so much as think-
ing about getting an abortion can
prompt a citizen’s arrest. I feel bad
for the liberal Californian who’s
picked Kansas for their undergrad;
it must be like living on an inhos-
pitable, far-right alien planet.
Even so, I won’t give up on this
that I call home. All of this ab-
surd extremism is a recent devel-
opment that rushed to the fore
on the coattails of the Tea Party.
It’s easy to forget that Jayhawkers
once trod these plains, that Brown
v. Board of Education was decided
within these borders, and that this
was once the home of progressive
I’ll stick it out and hope that this

he shockwaves from the
Boston Marathon bomb-
ing are still being felt by
our collective nation as we try to
not only find out who’s responsi-
ble, but to also ask the question,
“Why?” Every news outlet is all
over this story, and for good rea-
son, but a unique aspect of jour-
nalism — in particular sports
journalism — has been brought
to the forefront of news report-
ing and, more importantly, where
sports reporting fits in.
Sports website Deadspin came
out with a story Tuesday describ-
ing a contingent of people – I’ll
refer to them as the “stick-to-
sporters” – complaining about
sports media outlets and its
involvement with the reporting
of the Boston Marathon bomb-
ing. Many took to Twitter to
unleash their frustrations with
what they described as sports
media outlets reporting on an
issue that was way out of its
league. The tweets ranged from
frustration with sports outlets
like ESPN to general disbelief
that sports commentators would
dabble in hard news. Here are
some of the tweets that can be
found in the Deadspin story:
“Come on ESPN I know this
is a tragic event but that’s what
CNN is for. Can you please stick
to sports news,” tweeted by @
“#bobcostas stick to sports
because your politics are awful,”
tweeted by @Jacksovertens.
The debate will rage on
concerning the legitimacy of
sports media outlets’ relevance
to sensitive domestic issues like
terrorism, but bear in mind one
glaring fact of this particular
matter – the Boston Marathon is
a sporting event. While I agree
that this is a rare case in which
an act of terrorism occurred at
an American sporting event, I
don’t see why sports journal-
ists – those with the exact same
academic training as many
within primarily news oriented
outlets – should be kept out of
the reporting circle, especially
when the story centers around a
When it comes to sports
personalities giving a particular
political opinion after an event
like the Boston Marathon bomb-
ing, I concur with the “stick-to-
sporters.” I view someone like
Bob Costas as a powerful nation-
al figure, not just for his sports
input but also his persistent
unearthing of the many repulsive
activities that take place within
the realm of sports. But that’s
just the thing – he’s an investi-
gative guru within a particular
field. Sure, he’s had times where
he’s commented on gun control
and race issues at the Masters.
But it’s a dangerous proposition
for sports personalities to hide
behind their respective shields
(ESPN, NBC Sports, etc.) for
opinionated protection. Tensions
are high and people are looking
for any excuse to blame someone
or something, so it’s probably
best to pay respects to the fami-
lies affected by the tragedy and
continue focusing on sports.
To me, personal political
commentary coming from
sports personalities in wake of
events like the Boston Marathon
bombing – or any other act of
terrorism on U.S. soil – comes
off as distasteful and inappro-
priate. This is where I feel the
line should be drawn – when it
comes to personal opinion, it’s
best for sports personalities to
voice that “off air.” But when it
comes to reporting, coverage of
the Boston Marathon bombing
should be fair game for sports
and news media outlets alike.

Sure, CNN has the resources

It was awesome. I didn’t notice

That’s the diabolically intrigu-
ing question posed by “Trance,”
a style-conscious psychodrama in
which a shimmering puzzle box
artifice masks the densely plotted
machinations of a fairly standard
bait-and-switch crime thriller.
Danny Boyle’s newest film desper-
ately wants to scale the cerebral
heights of “Inception” and “Stir
of Echoes” but instead succumbs
to the laborious contortions of
its own pretzel logic, leaving the
viewer detached and exasperated
by the time the end credits roll.
The film opens inside a
Sotheby’s-like auction house in
London, where Francisco Goya’s
notoriously unsettling 1798 oil
canvas “Witches in the Air” is
being auctioned off for the prince-
ly sum of $27 million. Before the
final bid can be placed, a group
of thieves storm the room in a
hail of tear gas. In the ensuing
chaos, Simon (James McAvoy),
the house’s security specialist,
grabs the painting and heads for
an underground bunker, where he
is knocked unconscious by Franck
(Vincent Cassel), the black mar-
ket art dealer who planned the

injuries have resulted in short-
term memory loss, Franck and
his crew force the young man
to attend hypnotherapy sessions
with Dr. Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario
Dawson), who quickly reveals her
own agenda when she learns how
much money is up for grabs. The
rest of the film unfolds as a series
of twists and double-crosses,
pausing occasionally for a gra-
tuitous sex scene or a needlessly
elaborate explanation of a given
This was supposed to be Boyle’s
return to his urban-maniacal
roots, an effort to rekindle the
gritty, quicksilver kineticism he
brought to early triumphs like
“Trainspotting” and “28 Days
Later,” the latter of which practi-
cally resurrected the now-flour-
ishing zombie sub-genre. The
imagery on display in “Trance”
is suitably hypnotic, a fitful blend
of translucent oranges and blues
underscored by the twitchy, funk-
laden palpitations of a soundtrack
populated by the likes of UNKLE
and Moby. Yet the script, co-writ-
ten by Joe Ahearne and Boyle’s
go-to screenwriter John Hodge,
exhibits all the grasping excesses
of a first draft in search of an

vate the anemic material. McAvoy
has a surprisingly potent chemis-
try with Dawson, and their scenes
together crackle with a self-con-
tained erotic charge. Even though
she’s saddled with an unseemly
amount of expositional dialogue,
Dawson manages to lend Dr.
Lamb an air of fiercely repressed
tragedy. Cassel, the expressive

With its loopy, convulsive cin-
ematography and vivid fantasy
sequences, “Trance” continues
to fascinate on a stylistic level
long after its narrative potential
has collapsed under the weight
of its own plot holes and para-

has expanded considerably since
helming the Olympics’ open-
ing ceremonies and reimagining
Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” as
an ambitious stage play where the
actors playing the doctor and the
Monster (Benedict Cumberbatch
and Johnny Lee Miller) swapped
roles every night, has an undeni-
able flair for capturing the grace

been a worthy addition to his
impressively eclectic filmography.
Instead it remains little more than
a gorgeously mounted migraine.

Shut up, Internet.
“Friends” reunion is not happen-
This rumor, this tired, hack-
neyed drivel of a rumor, pops
up reliably every few months,
like an Elvis sighting. It’s almost
turned into the beginning of a
bad joke: “Did you hear the one
about the ‘Friends’ reunion?” Ha
ha. Shut up.
It popped up again Tuesday,
leading Marta Kauffman — she
and David Crane were show-run-
ners so she should know — to tell
E! that this will never happen.
Someone with way too much
time on their hands actually put
together a poster proclaiming a
reunion, it went viral — just like
the flu — and gullible people
actually believed it.
I’m going to tell you why this
will never happen:
1.) Jennifer Aniston has a life.
Reunions are death.
2.) All of the core actors have
lives — which is to say day jobs
producing, creating, acting or
directing. They’d need a reunion
like another hole in the face.
3.) Reunions are death. Oh, I
already mentioned that.
4.) Everyone associated with
“Friends” is vastly wealthy. Actors
do reunions only when they are
having trouble paying the mort-
gage on the Malibu Beach house.
5.) Reunions simply remind
fans that their beloved Rachel,
Monica, Phoebe, Chandler and
Ross have reached middle age,
and that they are no longer cute.
6.) Warner Bros. has tried to
get a reunion going, but they’ve
been laughed out of the room.

Record Store Day has quickly
caught on as a celebration that thou-
sands choose to be a part of. Taking
place on the third Saturday of April
each year, Record Store Day falls on
this coming Saturday, April 20.
The official website for the “holi-
day” eloquently states that the day
simply intends for independently
owned record stores to come togeth-
er with artists and fans to celebrate
the art of music.
Since its launch in 2007, Record
Store Day has grown over the years to
involve more than 700 independent-
ly owned record
stores in the U.S.,
local Love Garden
is one of them.
manager of Love
Garden, has been
hard at work to
ensure the day
will be a success. Love Garden has
been an active participant from the
start. “It was a low stakes affair at
first, and now it’s grown into a pretty
big deal,” he said.
Love Garden sees around 2,000
people throughout the entirety of
the day. Last year, one anxious guy
arrived at the store at 2:30 a.m. to
reserve his first-place spot in line.
The line starts to form at 6 a.m. and
by 9 a.m., most people are in line.
“We’ve developed a pretty assidu-
ous formula to keep people pretty
limited to what they can get, though,”
Corcoran said. “Everyone in line can
only get five items and they can’t
get duplicates. In theory, the Record
Store Day stuff is readily available to
Corcoran sent out a list to Love
Garden’s email subscribers last
Friday announcing all the specialty
items and promotions that the store
will have to offer. A Facebook page
has also been created for the event.
Corcoran explained that he is updat-
ing the page daily as he checks new
items in. He is also using the Facebook
page to house accurate information
in one place and
address any ques-
on the minds of
is if there will be
a special perfor-
mance or appear-
ance by a musical
guest on the day
of the event. Corcoran confirmed
that although there will be none, the
decision was made with good inten-
tions. “It’s so bananas on this day that
I don’t see the point of having bands
play. It’s really driven by people
wanting this limited, exclusive stuff,”
he said. “I also feel like it’s derogatory
to the bands to have to play on that
day. The band gets better publicity if
they can play on their own. All in all,
it’s better for everybody.”
Corcoran did say, however, that
Love Garden does offer “in stores”
(in store performances) fairly often.
Corcoran is not alone in want-
ing to keep this one day central-
ized around the idea of appreciating
records. In the past six years, Record
Store Day has gained a strong follow-
ing of music lovers and aficionados
from all facets. The day has proven
capable of promoting core values
within the music industry of sup-
porting artists and bands, as well as
Lawrence is lucky to have a lush
lineup of eclectic local stores, Love
Garden included. Love Garden has
been a full service record store since
1990 and shows no signs of slowing
down anytime soon.
Corcoran believes that from an
economic standpoint, it is necessary
for record stores to contribute to
the cause and offer exclusive deals.
“People want it, we should have it,
’cause we’ll sell it,” he said. “I think
every store should participate.”
“More importantly, the day is
meant to celebrate the existence of
record stores. People want to cel-
ebrate, and you should enable them
to do that,” Corcoran said. “The day
reminds people that this place has
value, that people should care about
it. We should be happy that people
want to celebrate at our store — and

CLEVELAND — Superman’s
75th anniversary is giving his
creators’ blue-collar hometown a
renewed chance to claim the super-
hero as its own.
Fans hope Thursday’s anniversa-
ry, including lighting city hall with
Superman’s colors, will raise the
profile of co-creators Jerry Siegel
and Joe Shuster.
The city is making a start with a
Superman day proclaimed by the
mayor and giving out birthday cake
at the airport’s Superman display.
The June release of Hollywood’s
latest Superman tale, “Man of
Steel,” also should renew fan inter-
est. The film offers a fresh start for
the kid from Krypton, with Henry
Cavill as the boy who falls to Earth
and becomes its protector.
Siegel and Shuster labored on
their creation for years in the throt-
tling grip of the Great Depression
before finally selling Superman to
The Man of Steel became a
Depression-era bootstrap strat-
egy for the Siegel/Shuster team,
according to Brad Ricca, a profes-
sor at nearby Case Western Reserve
University who uses Superman in
“They really just saw it as a way
out,” he said.
In his upcoming book “Super
Boys,” Ricca says the story of
Superman’s creation is mostly
about their friendship: two boys
in the city’s Glenville neighbor-
hood dreaming of “fame, riches
and girls” in a time when such
dreams are all the easier to imagine
because of the crushing economic
Ricca said Siegel and Shuster
reflected Cleveland’s ethnic mix:
both were sons of Jewish immi-
grants, struggled during the
Depression and hustled to make
something of themselves.
Superman’s first appearance, in
Action Comics No. 1, was April
The first and greatest superhero
has gone on to appear in nearly 1,000
Action Comics and has evolved
with the times, including a 1940s
radio serial, a 1950s TV series and
as a reliable staple for Hollywood.
Pop culture expert Charles Coletta
at Bowling Green State University
said Superman ranks globally with
George Washington and the Super
Bowl as American icons.
But it wasn’t just hardscrabble
circumstances that tempered the
Man of Steel, Siegel’s daughter
Laura Siegel Larson said
Cleveland’s public library, comic
pages and high school mentors all
nurtured her father’s creativity.
“The encouragement that he
received from his English teach-
ers and the editors at the Glenville
High School newspaper and the
literary magazine gave my dad
a real confidence in his talents,”
she said by phone Monday from
Los Angeles. She plans to be in
Cleveland for the Thursday anni-
The tale of Superman’s first
moments begins in Siegel’s bed-
room. He once recalled coming up
with the idea while looking up at
the stars and imaging a powerful
hero who looked out for those in
Today, Siegel’s home is easy to
pick out on a street with a mix of
renovated and dilapidated homes:
a stylized red Superman “S’’ adorns
the fence and a sign identifies
the home as “the house where
Superman was born.”
And like the Man of Steel, the
neighborhood is tough.
“You better have ‘S’ on your chest
if you come out after dark,” grinned
Tommie Jones, 50, helping move
furniture several doors away.
Hattie Gray, 61, who moved
into the home nearly 30 years ago
unaware of its history, has gotten
used to the parade of Superman
fans walking by or knocking, try-
ing to savor a piece of comics lure.
“I get people all the time, peo-
ple all the way from Japan, from
Australia,” she said. “It’s a great joy
to live here.”
The top floor, where Siegel went
to write, still offers the nighttime
view of the sky over Lake Erie that
Gray has heard the talk about
Glenville being tough, but said
crime that might merit Superman’s
attention can be found anywhere.
“The neighborhood is not really
bad, it’s just the people are poor.
That’s all,” she said.
Shuster’s home has been demol-
ished and replaced by another, but
the fence has oversized Superman
comic book pages displayed.
The nearby commercial strip has
a state historic marker detailing
Superman’s Cleveland roots.
But there isn’t an outsized
Superman profile in Cleveland like
the way the city celebrates its role
in music history with the iconic
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and
Comic store owner Markus
Benn thinks hometown fans want
to see the Man of Steel rendered
“I don’t understand why
Cleveland won’t own up to owning
Superman,” he said. “What do I
suggest for a Superman statue? He
should be downtown, he should
have the shield or the eagle, that
classic pose where he’s standing up
there with the eagle on his arm.”
The low Superman profile in
Cleveland may be because Siegel
and Shuster weren’t self-promoters
and sold their rights to Superman so
early, according to Mike Olszewski,
a longtime Cleveland broadcast-
er and president of the nonprofit
Siegel & Shuster Society.
Last year the $412 check that DC
Comics wrote in 1938 to acquire
Superman and other creative
works by Shuster and Siegel sold
for $160,000 in an online auction.

Tom Batiuk shares roots in the
Cleveland area with Superman and

he cards all seemed to be
stacked in Kansas’ favor to
take its string of consecu-
tive Big 12 Championships into
the double digits.
Although the Jayhawks lost their
entire starting fve, a stellar recruit-
ing class, coupled with defections
and graduations at other schools,
made all signs point to Kansas.
Tat is, until freshman Marcus
Smart decided to turn down
millions of dollars and return to
Oklahoma State was already
viewed as a threat to take down the
reigning champs. Of the top nine
scorers in the Big 12 last season,
only two players were returning to
school: Oklahoma State’s Markel
Brown and Le’Bryan Nash.
Now, Oklahoma State will fea-
ture the top three returning scorers
in the conference. And Smart is
the most important of all.
Oklahoma State is more than a
threat now. It is the favorite.
Tat is the efect of having a top-
fve pick return to school. Smart is
a disruptive force for the Cowboys
at the point guard position and is
an especially bad match-up for the
Jayhawks, who are shaky at point
guard. He has quick hands and his
size relative to his position makes
him a superior rebounder.
In Oklahoma State’s upset at the
hallowed grounds of Allen Field-
house, Smart had 25 points, eight
rebounds, and fve steals. He held
Elijah Johnson to eight points on
3-14 shooting. Afer the game was
over, he celebrated his accomplish-
ments by channeling his inner
gymnast and completing a perfect
back-fip at mid-court.
What will make Smart even
scarier is if he can develop an
outside shot, the one cog missing
from his game.
An even scarier aspect of his
game might be the chip he will
have on his shoulder. Fans always
decry the marginal player who
declares for the draf, but also do
so to the star player who returns
to school. Smart is as his last name
would suggest. He knows the risks
of returning to school.
He also knows his own abilities.
Smart would not turn down the
NBA if he were not confdent in
his ability to maintain his draf
stock. With pundits and fans criti-
cizing his decision, using choice
words such as “horrible” and
“stupid,” he will have the motiva-
tion to prove to his doubters that
his decision was the right one.
Add a year of experience, a
sprinkle of renewed motivation,
with a dash of a jump shot, and
Oklahoma State has a recipe for a
Big 12 Championship.
Kansas can certainly spoil that
recipe. Smart’s decision is very
similar to Blake Grifn’s in 2008.
Tat year, Kansas lost its entire
starting fve, and Grifn turned
down surefre lottery money to re-
turn to school, making Oklahoma
the odds-on favorite.
As Kansas’ streak of champion-
ships would suggest, Bill Self and
the Jayhawks found a way to win
the Big 12 that year.
Self certainly has the talent on
his squad to replicate that success.
But if 10 straight is going to
happen, the Jayhawks will have to

Q: How many times in the past 25
years have non-Americans won the
tRIVIA of thE DAY
“We’ll keep training harder, for the
people who perished today.”
— Wesley Korir,
won Boston Marathon in 2012,
fnished 5th this year
Rita Jeptoo of Kenya won this year’s
Boston Marathon in 2 hours, 26
minutes and 10 seconds for the
women. Lelisa Desisa of Ethiopia
won for the men in 2 hours, 10
minutes and 23 seconds.
fAct of thE DAY
thE MoRNING BREW
QUotE of thE DAY
Through tragedy, the sports world comes together as one
onday, the city of Boston
was celebrating Patriots’ Day,
which is normally an enjoyable
day in the Boston area. The most notable
sports event on this day was the Boston
Marathon, ran every year to celebrate this
holiday. But what happened about half-
way through the race shocked the world.
What was supposed to be a joyous day
turned into tragedy in just a second. As
runners kept running and crossing the
finish line, two bombs went off on the
sides of the street where bystanders were
watching the race. One went off right
before the finish line and another one
a block away. Many people were hurt.
Runners, race watchers and even children
were injured. Blood was spewed every-
where, people were helping the victims.
Police and ambulances were running
through the scene. Screams were heard
from all around. Tears mixed with the
blood on the ground.
The Boston Marathon is known as
the old, drunk uncle of Boston sports.
It’s the last of the true festival events that
takes place. It is well known, and as the
events of what happened unfolded, the
rest of the world sat watching the live
feeds and videos of what was happening.
Later that evening, players of every sport
took a moment of silence to write the
words “Pray for Boston” anywhere that
would show their support. Professional
players tweeted saying they would donate
their own money to help support relief
for the Boston area. The Boston Bruins
and Celtics games were both canceled
because of what happened. The Bruins
were supposed to play Monday night,
and the Celtics were to play Tuesday. On
SportsCenter, many of the Bruins players
showed a lot of emotion in their inter-
views. The bombings hit them emotion-
ally because it happened in their city, and
in all, it was a very emotional event.
All around the United States, major
cities increased security as protection to
their citizens. Sporting events had addi-
tional security, and many fans also had
concerns and said prayers for those who
suffered in Boston. The London mara-
thon is coming up, and the top executives
for the race have said that additional
security and an investigation will take
place before and during the race. They
also said they will still hold the mara-
thon. They called the attackers cowards
and said they will prove to them that the
people will stay strong and show their
It is an emotional time right now. All
you can do is pray for the victims. So far,
the count of victims has reached 179.
Three of those were killed and 176 are
being treated or have been treated for
their injuries. We still don’t know all of
the details of this incident. No matter if
you hate the city of Boston or the teams
that play in Boston, you should support
and pray for them through this rough
time. Through tragedy, we come together

Busch ready for Kansas
to maintain his hot streak
It’s Kyle Busch’s world once again
in nAscAR, and everybody else is just
sharing track space with him. Until this
weekend at Kansas, of course.
Then everyone gets to see just how
far Busch has really come in the last 17
Busch won both the sprint cup

season, in a huge comeback at the site
of his 2011 nAscAR suspension for
deliberately wrecking Ron Hornaday Jr.
in a Truck series race.
now he carries all that momentum
into Kansas, his worst track on the
circuit. Busch is winless at Kansas in
11 career starts, has only two top-10
fnishes and wrecked there during
chase for the sprint cup champion-
ship races in 2007 and 2010. He also
crashed last season.
still, Busch just picked up his frst
career win at Texas Motor speedway
and he wants to do the same at Kansas,
where his average fnish is 21st and is
one of only six active tracks where he’s
yet to win a cup race.
“It’s not that you might not like a
track or might not like a race ... it’s
just a matter of trying to fgure it out,”
Busch said. “Once you kind of get it
fgured out or get the right situations
kind of lined up, you can have a shot.
I look at (Kansas) a lot like Michigan.
That’s a place where I struggled for a
long time, but we fnally were able to
break through there for a win two years
In years past, Busch has dreaded
going to Kansas. not this year.
A year after grabbing just one win
across all three nAscAR national series,
Busch is red hot again.

in every game and we anticipate that
we’ll see really strong pitching from
both of them [Simone Freeman and

Kansas enters the weekend with
an overall record of 26-11 and a

On a rainy and windy Wednesday
morning, college athletes from
across the Midwest gathered at
Memorial Stadium to get the 86th
Kansas Relays underway. While
the majority of the events will
take place on Friday and Saturday,
the men’s decathlon and women’s
heptathlon got their events started
Wednesday. The men compete in
10 events, while the women com-
pete in seven, with the option of
picking up points in each event
and the winner being declared at
the conclusion of the events.
Fourteen women and 11 men
who range from NCAA Division
I to NAIA to junior college are
competing in the multi-event com-
petition at the Kansas Relays. The
universities represented include
the University of Nebraska,
McPherson College and Neosho
County Community College.
On the men’s side, the leader
after five events is John Cord from
Simpson College in Indianola,
Iowa. He has racked up 3390
points, thanks in part to his third-
place finish in the high jump. He
is followed closely by Dan Simon
of the University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee, who has 3379 points.
Simon won the 100 meters with a
time of 11.09.
Jayce Thomas from Missouri
Southern State University is cur-
rently in third place with 3347
points. He recorded the best
score in the high jump, clearing
1.97 meters (6’5.5”). Sitting in
fourth place is Atsu Nyamadi from
Neosho County, who finished third
in the long jump and has a total of
After the first day of events, the
women are led by Erin Busbee from
the University of Michigan. Her
3010 point total includes victories
in the 100 and 200 meters. Busbee
is followed by Alex Beckman from
the University of Minnesota, who
has 2927 points, thanks to her
runner-up finish in the shot put.
Third place is owned by Jourdan
Doffeny from Nebraska, who has
2848 points and was the runner-up
in the 100 meters. Rachel Klinger,
who is competing unattached, is in
fourth place with 2820 points.
The conclusion of both the
heptathlon and the decathlon
will resume Thursday morning at
Memorial Stadium. The men will
finish the competition with the
1500 meter run while the women’s
finale will be the 800 meter run.

PITTSBURGH — A.J. Burnett
took a no-hitter into the seventh
inning nearly 12 years afer throw-
ing the only one of his career,
pitching the Pittsburgh Pirates to
a 5-0 victory over the St. Louis
Cardinals on Wednesday night.
Burnett (1-2) lost his bid with
two outs in the seventh on Carlos
Beltran’s double to right-center.
Tat was the lone hit given up by
the 36-year-old right-hander in
seven dominant innings.
Te only other runner he al-
lowed came when he hit Daniel
Descalso with a 2-2 pitch with one
out in the sixth to end his shot at
a perfect game. Burnett struck out
eight to raise his season total to 35
in 24 innings.
His bid for a no-hitter came
on a night when he recorded the
2,000th strikeout of his 15-year
career. Burnett reached the mile-
stone when he caught Beltran
looking to lead of the second.
Te game was stopped brief-
ly when Pirates infelders and
catcher Russell Martin went to the
mound to shake Burnett’s hand.
Burnett also gave a quick wave
to the crowd of 9,570, which gave
him a standing ovation.

and Jason Grilli completed the
one-hitter. It was the Pirates’ sec-
ond shutout of the season and the

After a tough 12-4 loss to the
Creighton Bluejays Tuesday
in Omaha, Neb., and a cancel-
lation due to inclement weather
Wednesday, the Jayhawks are head-
ed to Lubbock, Texas to take on a
struggling Red Raider squad.
The Red Raiders are in the midst
of a seven game losing streak, six of
these coming on the road.
“I actually wish they were still
playing as good as they were play-
ing earlier in the year,” coach Ritch
Price said. “Lubbock’s a really
tough place to get to. It’s a tough
place to play. When they’re playing
well they draw over 3,000 people a
game in their new stadium.”
The Red Raiders return junior
right-handed pitcher Trey Masek
to the mound after a three-week
absence due to injury. Masek,
named the No. 2 prospect in the
upcoming class of the MLB draft
by Baseball America last month, is
largely considered the soul of the
Red Raider pitching rotation.
“The scary part for us is their
number one guy is back and pitch-
ing Friday,” Coach Price said. “He’s
been out three weeks and you can
almost coincide their losing streak
here with him being out of the
Price said Masek’s Pitcher of the
Year performance in the Cape Cod
League this summer is a testa-
ment to just how solid he is on the
The Red Raiders are a mirror
image of last year’s Kansas team
that fielded the youngest lineup in
the Big 12. Coach Price said their
struggles in the midseason stretch
are much the same as his team
“They’ve got a lot of freshmen
and a lot of sophomores playing,”
Price said. “They’ve got into the
Big 12 conference and it can just
beat you up mentally with how
good the teams are. Their going to
continue to get better, we just have
to make sure we take care of things
we can control.”
Red Raiders junior infielder Jake
Barrios leads the team at the plate,
batting .300 with 33 hits, three
home runs and 30 RBIs.
After Tanner Poppe’s rough out-
ing on the mound Tuesday, the
Jayhawks continue their focus on
“With us it starts with starting
pitching,” Price said. “We have to
get three quality starting pitching
performances in order to have an
opportunity to win the series and
not take a step back and lose the
momentum we’ve gained after the
first four weeks of the year.”
The Jayhawks will start their
attempt at maintaining that
momentum after their tough mid-
week performance with a 6:37 p.m.
first pitch Friday in Lubbock.

When the Kansas women’s golf
team started its season, getting to
the NCAA regionals was a clear
goal. But now, the Jayhawks are
sitting on the regional bubble and
this week’s Big 12 Championship is
Kansas’ only hope to get a regional
“Tis one is more pressure be-
cause we are ranked higher than we
have been in the past,” said junior
Meghan Potee. “Being right there
on the bubble to getting an invite to
regionals puts a little more pressure
Te pressure is on the Jayhawks,
especially with history considered.
Kansas has fnished in the bottom
half of the tournament feld eight of
the nine years that head coach Erin
O’Neil has overseen the program.
Te highest fnish for the Jayhawks
in that time period was ffh place
in the ‘04-‘05 season. Kansas has
never qualifed for an NCAA re-
gional since regionals started in
1993, but Potee thinks things are
“We have the best [team] we’ve
had in years or ever since coach has
been here,” Potee said. “I think we
have a chance of playing really well.
We’ve been playing real steady re-
Te Jayhawks are currently
ranked No. 67, according to Golf-
week. Te total number of teams
in the feld for NCAA regionals is
72, but automatic bids can always
sneak into the tournament from
outside the top 72 teams.
“Tis year we’re ranked re-
ally well, and we don’t have to rely
solely on Big 12s to advance on to
regionals,” senior Audrey Yowell
said. “I think we’re just going to go
out there and treat it like it was any
other tournament we are playing in
and try to keep the pressure of.”
Te Jayhawks have two wins to
help their regional resume, but the
Big 12 Championship is the key for
the Jayhawks’ postseason hopes.
Te pressure is inevitable.
“You have all the teams in the
conference that are very good, sol-
id teams. It’s run at a high level. It’s
exciting. It’s fun. Tere’s more pres-
sure,” O’Neil said. “Tat’s why we’re
here, to compete and handle that
kind of thing.”
Kansas is coming of its best fn-
ish of the spring season, a second
place fnish at last week’s Indiana
Invitational. Leading the way for
Kansas most recently has been

windy conditions and cold condi-
tions and they’ve handled them-

that gets thrown their way.”

On Saturday, the Big 12 will
have only one tennis team with-

play, but the Mountaineers come

the Jayhawks, and the winner will
be able to take a step out of the
Kansas hosted No. 29 Texas and
No. 15 Texas Tech last weekend,
but the Jayhawks were unable to
get a much needed conference
victory. Kansas subsequently ex-
tended its conference losing streak
to 21 games.
For the Jayhawks, momentum
will be important. Kansas has
started too slowly in doubles play
over the past two matches and has
not been able to make up the lost
ground in singles play. In order for
this to happen, freshman Anasta-
sija Trubica and senior Victoria
Khanevskaya will have to keep up
their high-level of play. Te duo
got the only
ries last week-
comes in with a
4-14 (0-7) re-
cord, which is
the worst in
the Big 12, and
hopes to leave Lawrence with a
conference win. For the Moun-
taineers to achieve this goal, they
will need to duplicate the play of
the Texas teams from a week ago
and keep the Jayhawks grounded
in singles play.
If Kansas is unable to best the
Mountaineers, the team will have
one last shot at breaking its losing
streak on Sunday when Iowa State
visits the Jayhawk Tennis Center
on Senior Night.
If history is any indicator, then
Kansas looks to be the favorite in
this match as the Jayhawks hold
a 37-3 all-time lead in the series.
However, ISU did manage to fend
of Kansas in Ames, Iowa., last
Sunday might have a little ex-
tra meaning for the two Jayhawk
seniors, Monica Pezzotti and Vic-
toria Khanevskaya, as this will be
their last regular season matches
in crimson and blue.
ISU sits at 1-6 in Big 12 play
with a 8-12 overall record. Te
lone conference victory came last
weekend against WVU, and Kan-
sas has an opportunity to put both
schools beneath it in Big 12 play
with a clean sweep this weekend.
Friday’s match is set to begin
at 2 p.m., and Sunday’s is set for
noon. All in attendance will be
given a free hot dog and chips to
help celebrate the seniors.

CHICAGO — Te Texas Rang-
ers are getting accustomed to this
cold, damp weather.
Te game between the Rangers
and Chicago Cubs scheduled for
Wednesday night was rained out.
It was postponed two hours before
it was supposed to start at Wrigley
No makeup date was an-
nounced. Te teams are set to play
“(Tuesday) night wasn’t bad,
just a little chilly but we’re in Chi-
cago and we’re going to have to
put up with that,” frst baseman
Mitch Moreland said. “We’ve kind
of dealt with it the last few games
It might’ve been more than “a
little chilly.” Te gametime tem-
perature Tuesday night was 39 de-
grees with the wind blowing in of
nearby Lake Michigan.

ditions he’s felt crosstown at U.S.
Cellular Field, where the White
I can tell you what, we’ve been
on the south side when it’s cold,
but it’s not the same cold on the
north side,” Washington said.
Texas opened the interleague
series with a 4-2 win.
Before Wednesday, the Rangers
had played their last fve games
with the temperatures below 50
degrees, including four at Seattle’s
Safeco Field. So, for a warm-weath-
er team, Texas is rather well-versed
in ways to beat low temperatures
and tough conditions.

Grimm, in favor of Alexi Ogando
Yu Darvish will pitch Fri-
day against Seattle regardless of
Tursday’s weather. Grimm will
pitch Sunday and Tuesday’s win-
ner, Derek Holland, will open the
Rangers’ set Monday with the Los
And if the Chicago weather
continues to be a problem, there
are a few Rangers who know how
to deal with the raw conditions.
Te Rangers have former Chi-
cago White Sox catcher A.J. Pier-
zynski, along with ex-Cubs Geo-
vany Soto and Jef Baker. Te three
spent parts of a combined 20 years
in Chicago, and certainly experi-
enced some miserable April days.
“Te thing you keep coming
back to is that both teams are play-
ing in it,” said Baker, who spent
parts of four years with the Cubs.
“Yeah, you’re probably not going
to have your great individual per-
formance that day but at the same
time all that matters is beating that
other team and going out there
and scoring more runs.”
Moreland said he was told to ex-
pect what the Rangers are getting.
“Tat’s the way it is in Chicago
this time of the year,” Moreland
said. “Tat’s part of it.”
Tat isn’t to say the conditions
are pleasant at Wrigley. Baker
remembered that last season he
didn’t wear short sleeves under his
jersey until June at Wrigley.
His mindset, however, never
changed. It was always about win-
ning and trying to block out the

Athletics sweep Astros
over three-game series
oAKLAnd, Calif. — Bartolo Colon
pitched six crisp innings, Josh Reddick
doubled in two runs during a six-run
frst and the oakland Athletics beat the
Houston Astros 7-5 on Wednesday to
complete another three-game sweep.
The Athletics swept a three-game
series at Houston during the frst week
of the season.
seth smith had three hits and Jed
Lowrie added two for the A’s, who im-
proved to an AL-best 12-4. oakland out-
scored Houston 22-10 in the series.
The A’s sent 11 batters to the plate
and chased Astros starter Bud norris in
the frst inning, then won behind Colon
(2-0) and three relievers.
Jose Altuve had three hits and Carlos
Pena homered for the second straight
day for Houston. Pinch-hitter Rick Ankiel
also homered for the Astros.
Colon beat Houston for the second
time this season.
Chris Carter reached on an RBi
grounder in the frst, then was picked
off by the 39-year-old Colon to end the
Colon retired 15 of the fnal 17 bat-
ters he faced. He gave up four hits,
struck out three and only allowed one
runner past frst base — Jose Altuve,
who singled and scored Houston’s frst
Colon, who has not walked a batter
in 19 innings this season, lowered his
eRA to 3.32.
it was also the second time in three
games Houston’s starting pitcher failed
to get out of the frst. eric Bedard retired
just one batter and gave up six runs in
Monday’s 11-2 loss to the A’s in the
shortest outing of his career.
norris (2-2) lasted only slightly lon-
ger, sticking around to get a second out
when leadoff hitter John Jaso grounded
out in his second at-bat of the frst.
Reddick broke out of 4-for-39 slump
with a double to highlight oakland’s big
Royals victory ends Atlanta’s
ten-game winning streak
ATLANTA — Wade Davis
pitched fve-hit ball for seven in-
nings, Jef Francoeur had a fourth-
inning RBI single and the Kansas
City Royals stopped Atlanta’s 10-
game winning streak with a 1-0
Te Braves were seeking their
frst 13-1 start since 1994, but the
powerful Atlanta ofense — which
homered fve times of the Royals
on Tuesday — fnally was stifed.
Davis (2-0) didn’t walk any-
one and struck out seven, and the
Braves couldn’t get a runner past
frst base until Jason Heyward’s
two-out double in the sixth. Teir
only serious scoring chance came
in the seventh, when Juan Francis-
co was thrown out trying to score
from frst on a pop down the right-
Greg Holland worked a score-
less ninth for his third save in four
Mike Minor (2-1) had another
strong outing for the Braves, al-
lowing just fve hits and the lone
run in six innings. Te lef-hand-
er’s ERA over three starts is 0.95.
Neither team had gotten a run-
ner as far as second base until the
fourth, when the Royals caught
a couple of breaks before Fran-
coeur’s two-out hit.
Alcides Escobar led of with a
single to right, breaking an 0-for-
15 slump, but it appeared he
wouldn’t be on base for long when
he got stranded between frst and
second afer a pitch. Catcher Evan
Gattis tried to run at Escobar but
held the ball for too long, allowing
the runner to slide back into frst
just ahead of the throw.
Gattis pumped his fsts and
screamed at himself under his
mask for letting Escobar of the
Tat turned out to be a crucial
play. With two outs, Lorenzo Cain
hit a little dribbler down the third-
base line for an infeld hit, then
Francoeur came through on an 0-2
pitch, singling to lef feld when
Minor lef a ball in the strike zone
against a free-swinging batter who
is prone to chase bad pitches.
In the seventh, Atlanta put to-
gether its best scoring chance
against Davis. Francisco, who
homered twice against the Royals
on Tuesday, singled to right with
two outs for his second hit of the
game. Ten, Chris Johnson lofed
a popup that down the right-feld
line that landed about a foot fair,
just out of the grasp of diving sec-
ond baseman Chris Getz.
But Getz hustled to his feet,
tracked down the ball alongside the
rolled-up tarp, and alertly spotted
that Francisco was trying to score
all the way from frst. Te throw to
the plate was easily in time to get
the lumbering runner.
Escobar had an error in the
frst, throwing high afer felding a
grounder by leadof hitter B.J. Up-
ton, but the Royals shortstop came
up with a couple of nify defensive
plays — one a barehanded grab on
a grounder in the hole, another a
diving stop on a wickedly hit ball
by Chris Johnson to set up a dou-

MIAMI — Dwyane Wade suc-
cessfully lobbied to play in Miami’s
regular-season finale, saying he
wanted to get a little more work
in before the playoffs begin this
He looked more than ready for
another postseason run.
Wade scored 21 points and
handed out 10 assists, Mike Miller
added 21 points and the Miami
Heat wrapped up the regular sea-
son with a 105-93 win over the
Orlando Magic on Wednesday
Orlando finished with the NBA’s
worst record, 20-62.
Miami (66-16) became the 14th
team in NBA history to finish with
a winning percentage over .800.
The Heat have home-court advan-
tage throughout the NBA play-
offs and will open their quest for
a second straight championship
on Sunday against the Milwaukee
Bucks in Game 1 of an Eastern
Conference first-round series.
“Awesome,” Wade said. “It’s
great. It’s a testament to the team
being committed and being very
consistent all year.”
The Heat were without LeBron
James, who was away from the
team for the day while tending
to a personal matter and almost
certainly would not have played
even if he was in the arena any-
way. Chris Bosh was in the first
starting lineup the Heat submit-
ted Wednesday, before the team
changed course about 45 minutes
before game time and decided to
give him the night off as well.
“We still have time to get into
this mentally,” Heat coach Erik
Juwan Howard scored 12 points
in the 900th start of his career,
while Rashard Lewis scored 16
points and Ray Allen scored 10
The Heat finished 37-4 at home,
and not long after putting together
a 27-game winning streak — the
second-longest run in NBA histo-
ry — the defending champs head
into the postseason having won a
league-best eight in a row.
“Now we start the real thing,”
Nik Vucevic had 20 points and
13 rebounds for Orlando. Only
once have the Magic won fewer
games in a season — their inaugu-
ral year, going 18-64 in 1989-90.
“This was a learning experi-
ence for most of us,” Vucevic said.
“We’re young guys. It wasn’t easy
with a lot of losses. It wasn’t always
fun but we can take a lot from the
The Heat surely won’t mind not
seeing Vucevic again until next
fall. In three games against Miami
this season, Vucevic — who
arrived in Orlando as part of the
Dwight Howard trade last sum-
mer — finished with 65 points
and 63 rebounds, getting double-
doubles in every outing.
“It’s not a fluke,” Magic coach
Jacque Vaughn said. “He’s done it
on a consistent basis for us. And
he’s improved ... he’s gotten better
along the way.”
Tobias Harris scored 19,
Beno Udrih scored 12, Andrew
Nicholson scored 12, E’Twaun
Moore had 11 and Maurice
Harkless finished with 10 for the
“I’m thankful for being here,
for the organization, the coaches,
the fans,” Harris said. “I just look
forward to grow from it and come
back next year even more ready. ...
We’re just building on everything
to be a better team.”
Wade has been sidelined for
much of the past couple weeks
while recovering from bone bruis-
es around his right kneecap. He
announced about an hour before
the game that he would play, cit-
ing a need to improve his con-
ditioning before Game 1 of the

Track and field making The cuT
Kansas Relays underway,
event locations unusual
The 86th edition of the Kansas
Relays got underway on Wednesday,
albeit in the unlikeliest of places.
The elite division of men’s shot put
was held inside a livestock pavilion
at the Douglas County Fairgrounds
on the east side of Lawrence. The
standing-room-only crowd gath-
ered to watch nine shot put hope-
fuls claim the top spot.
The family friendly atmosphere
offered music that played lead-
ing up to the competition, the
University’s cheerleaders throw-
ing out t-shirts and sweatshirts in
between rounds, as well as a visit by
Big Jay himself. The event was orig-
inally scheduled to be downtown
near 8th and Massachusetts Street,
but was moved to the fairgrounds
because of inclement weather. The
attendance did not falter though,
as the crowd filled up the bleachers
and surrounded the makeshift shot
put arena on all sides.
Highlighting the competition
was last year’s Kansas Relays win-
ner, Reese Hoffa. The Georgia
native, who earned a bronze medal
at the 2012 London Olympics, was
leading entering the final round of
competition. That was when Ryan
Whiting, a graduate of Arizona
State University, entered the ring
for his final throw and landed a
toss of 21.65 meters (71’0.5”), top-
ping Hoffa’s best throw of 21.60
Finishing in third place was
Justin Rodhe, a Canadian who also
threw in the 2012 Olympics, with a
throw of 21.12 meters (69’4”). Cory
Martin, an Auburn University grad-
uate, finished in fourth place with a
heave of 20.32 meters (66’8”).
The excitement in the build-
ing was evident throughout as
the crowd cheered on each and
every participant — even Christian
Cantwell, a University of Missouri
graduate — and erupted when
Whiting’s throw in the final round
took the lead. The event was also
featured on Metro Sports in the
Kansas City area on ESPN3, which
goes to show how special this event
After Hoffa’s runner-up finish
in the shot put, he had one more
competition before his night was
done. Hoffa loves solving Rubik’s
cubes, and so does Kansas men’s
basketball player Kevin Young. The
two of them agreed to a competi-
tion after the conclusion of the shot
There they stood in the shot put
ring. The 6’8” — nearly seven feet
tall if you include his hair — Young
stood up against the 5’11” Hoffa in
a battle of wits. After nearly two
minutes went by, Hoffa successfully
solved his Rubik’s cube, defeating
Young by less than twenty seconds.
The two of them shook hands to a
final standing applause from the
crowd that stayed and watched the
The Relays are off to a great
start, but there’s plenty more
events worth watching. Thursday
offers more field events that fea-
ture athletes of Olympic caliber,
and Memorial Stadium will be the
center of attention on Friday and
Saturday as some of the fastest ath-
letes in the world compete against
Even if you missed the excite-
ment Wednesday night at the fair-
grounds, you have another oppor-
tunity Thursday night to see the
elite division of women’s long jump
at 6 p.m. at the same place. Leading
the group of women competing is
2012 Kansas Relays champion in
the event, Janay DeLoach.
No matter what your cup of tea
is, the Relays have something to
offer you. Just ask Kevin Young.

Senior forward kevin Young chats with bronze medalist reese hoffa after the two squared off in a rubik’s cube challenge to
end day one of the kansas relays. Young solved the rubik’s cube in less than two minutes, not quickly enough to beat hoffa.
hoffa was one of several professional shot putters who participated in the frst day of the kansas relays Wednesday night. The
shot put event was moved from downtown lawrence to the douglas county fairgrounds because of weather conditions.
