Not sure about Warner Joe!

BTW, did you adjust the volume on the video as well as your computer?  The video volume was set to mute at the outset.

No, I didn't 71. Ugh! I definitely should have had one of my eight grandchildren view the game with me. Even the eight-year old would have figured it out!

For future reference Joe: in the schedule listed in the banner (above) click on the Football schedule link, go to the game in question click on "Details" click on "Watch."  The FUV link is usually there as well.

Did as you suggested, 71, and enjoyed the video feed, but despite my every effort, never got the audio. Win a few. Lose a few.
But thanks again for the tip.

BTW, is that sideline reporter in the Lafayette jacket Warner Wolf or my imagination?

Many thanks, 71. I'll give it a try.

I reloaded the link from the schedule and it is playing now.
Thanks, but what is the link from the schedule?
5  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Re: Fordham @ Lafayette on: October 07, 2017, 03:42:48 pm
It's 3:40 PM and via what appears to be a feed from Lafayette, I get a pre-game show sans sound but featuring what appears to be an expanded Warner Wolf, whom I haven't seen in years. Has the game started? If so, how do I access it? If not, does anyone have an audio for this pre-game show? 
6  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Sailing / SAILORS AT NAVY & URI WEEKEND OF OCTOBER 7-8 on: October 07, 2017, 06:51:59 am
This weekend, our Women's team will be competing at the Navy Fall Women's Regatta, a 17-team Interconference competition at Annapolis, MD, while our Coed team will be racing at the Moody Trophy Regatta, an 18-team Interconference event hosted by the University of Rhode Island at the URI Sailing Center in Wakefield, RI. Both are extremely competitive events and spectators are welcome. Please introduce yourself to the team, if you do stop by.

Back in the 50's, 60's and early 70's before the demise of the Sailing program two years after losing varsity status, the Jesuit Cup was usually a triangular regatta among Fordham, Georgetown & St. Joseph's College in Philadelphia. Every once in a while, BC, Detroit or Holy Cross would make an appearance.

After the program's resurrection as a club sport in 2000 and the acquisition of a fleet of six 420s in 2001, the rebirth of the Jesuit Cup occurred but the event quickly grew from an all-Jesuit to a Catholic school competition, which included Notre Dame as well as Loyola in MD and New Orleans, Holy Cross, John Carroll and Marquette. When our fleet grew from 6 to 10 boats by 2008-09, we had to expand because College Sailing had grown like Topsy during the end of the last century. Today, the Jesuit Interconference Regatta is a major event, which as is indicated in a prior post, attracts teams from all over the country.

If you have never seen your Ram sailors in action, stop by Morris Yacht & Beach Club on City Island this weekend. Sixteen teams, including Stanford from the Pacific Coast conference, will be participating in this Interconference Regatta hosted by Fordham.

The forecast is good: wind both days; clouds and a 50% chance or rain for a couple of hours midday today, and a beautiful sunny day tomorrow. At Morris, you can view the action from the shore and from the end of their viewing pier.

If it rains at lunchtime today, stop by the Lobster Pot for some terrific New England Clam Chowder. Morris also welcomes guests to its bar and dining room for lunch and refreshments.

Go Rams!

From the first competitions in early September through the end of the fall season in mid-November; to the Rose and Sugar Bowl regattas during the mid-year off-season, and the commencement of the spring season in early March to the seven conference championships in late-April/early-May, all roads lead to the ICSA National Championships in Team Racing plus Women’s and Coed Dinghy competition after final exams in late May/early June.

Fordham’s Mid-Atlantic conference, MAISA, which consists of 54 teams, is divided into three regions; North, Central & South. This past weekend, the first qualifying regattas, which eventually lead to Coed National’s took place. The goal for our Rams was to finish among the top four teams at the North Fall Qualifier, which leads to a berth at the WAR Memorial Regatta, the MAISA Fall Coed Dinghy Championship. Fordham accomplished its goal, while providing many of our team members with very valuable experience at two major interconference regattas, which attracted teams from five of the seven national conferences. 


From the official regatta report:

Saturday, September 23:
Teams arrived to the Merrill Family Sailing Center with the lake glassed off. The expected forecast was a light northerly breeze around 12pm. Sailors waited ashore until finally the breeze trickled in from the North at 1pm. The breeze filled nicely at 6-8kts and the first start went off at 1:30pm. We were able to get through 4A & 4B races until the breeze shut off.

One protest was filed from Queens resulting in a DSQ for Fordham in race 2B. No breakdowns filed. No general recalls and all races were W4's.

Tomorrow's forecast appears to be quite similar to today, we expect the breeze to fill, but not until about 12 or 1pm. 

Sunday, September 24:
Sailors arrived to glass again and we waited until the breeze began to fill around 12pm. It filled quickly with good pressure around 8-10 kts. Breeze freshened to 10-12 kts and we were able to complete 3A and 3B races to finish the day. In total 7 races per division.
There were two protests filed, Queens & Fordham filed against each other in race 6B. Queens received a DSQ. Thank you to Judges Scott Ikle and Mary Kate Mezzetti.

Hobart/Wm. Smith, Cornell, NY Maritime and Fordham qualify for the War.

As indicated in Saturday night’s post, Roberto Stevens ’19 & Cortney Rielly ’20 sailed A Division for the Rams. In B Division, Grace Howie ’20 & Mareka Masterson ’19 sailed Races 1-4 and frosh Scott McKenzie & Elizabeth Hupp raced Races 5-7. Fordham’s performance was:

DIV.   1      2     3     4     5     6     7     TOTAL
A        3     3     5     3     6     7     8          35
B        1     Q     5     5     3     4     2          37 (DSQ = one point more than the number of competing teams, i.e. 17 points)

From the official regatta report:

Saturday, September 23:
Gorgeous day to hang out on the St. Mary's River. Despite having a poor forecast, Northerly breezes of 5-8 knots filled in enough to get in 9 W-4's in each division. Bradley Adam and the Seahawks did an excellent job keeping up with the shifts--and there were plenty of them. Races were on the lengthy side to make sure there were multiple shifts per beat and thus fewer races needed to be abandoned in the shifty conditions. Race 2B was abandoned when it glassed off and was re-sailed after an extended lunch break. Divisional boat switch happens tomorrow. Big Green out to a sizable lead heading into Sunday.

Sunday, September 24:
Sunday was another beautiful day with even less breeze. Just enough to complete thru 12A, but couldn't get a B to match. As fate would have it, the sea-breeze filled in 20 minutes too late. Great job to the Big Green for the convincing 20-point win!

Representing Fordham were Matt Cappetta ’19 & Annika Ekholm ’20 in A Division and
Eduardo Mintzias ’21 & Jamie Spence ’18 in B Division. 22 races were sailed, 11 in each division.

In A, our Rams placed among the top 10 six times with a 3rd place best. In B, we had seven top 10 finishes including one bullet (1st).

From the official regatta report:

Saturday, September 23:
After a week of exceptional NNE winds blowing straight down the lake at 12-25 knots, the air was let out of the balloon today. "A" div started with N 8 but it died to 1 for the back half of the finishers in 2A. "B" started in NNE 5 knots but they too had a calm causing an abandonment. The North wind re-filled several times but in mid-afternoon the wind went right, and right, and further right until it was due South for the last couple sets. Courses were all W-4s except the last race in each division which was a W-5.

Sunday, September 24:
Teams arrived to a mirror-like Mystic Lake today. Breeze began to fill on Boston Harbor around 10:45 but it became clear that it would not fill at Tufts until late this afternoon. Racing was called at 12:30 by the venerable RVG. The Jumbos would like to thank all the teams for their patience this weekend, especially those who traveled from out-of-NEISA.

Due to the lack of breeze, only 10 races were held; six in A Division and four in B Division.
Representing Fordham were Brad Seferian ’19 & Jacqueline Tobin ’20 in A Division, and a frosh boat of Sam Johnson & Paige Hoffman in B Division. Our Rams had one top 10 finish in each division; a 10th in A and a 2nd in B.

On balance, it was a good first weekend for our Ram Mariners. While the Nevins' results might not look that way, Coach Norfleet was able to evaluate four skippers and crews, who competed against some very good competition.

Regatta summaries are taken from the official reports.


Saturday, September 16:
Great day of racing despite the forecast. We completed 10 races in each division. We had a slight delay in the morning but race 1A eventually started at 10:46. A thunderstorm that went just east of us forced us to abandon race 10A and 10B and reset the whole course from the new southerly direction. Racing concluded at 1745. All courses were trapezoid and winds ranged from 0-12 from the NNE and then 6-8 from the SSE.
We had a few protests at the end of the day resulting in a few DSQ's and only minor BKD's. Thank you to the coaches who helped hear them.
The USMMA Midshipman did a great job setting courses all day! Tomorrow we start at 1000.

Sunday, September 17:
A short postponement to start the day. Race 11A started at 1155 in NNE winds ranging from 3-11MPH. We sailed all afternoon and 15C finished at 1451. Courses were again KP traps with a separate start finish line. Congrats to GTN on winning the 2017 Nevins trophy.
One protest was heard resulting in two DSQs.

Thanks to the USMMA Midshipmen for helping run a great event. See you next year!

Saturday, September 16:
Race 1A started at 10am in a building NNE breeze ranging from 5-8 knots. The wind remained very consistent throughout the morning only shifting 10 degrees in either direction. The current on the East River ranged from 1-3 knots at times and switched directions around noon.
Racing was called for the day around 5pm due to the combination of a 180 degree wind shift and a challenging amount of current. We finished the day with 6 A division races and 4 B division races.
One protest was filed and was disallowed. Thank you to Scott Ikle, Max Plarr and Geoff Loffredo for hearing the protest.
Thanks to the SUNY Maritime Cadets, who did a great job setting courses and running races in the challenging East River.
Race 5B will start at 0930 tomorrow.

Sunday, September 17:
Sailors arrived to a glassy East River this morning. After several hours of wind delay the wind finally filled at about 4-6kts out of the NNE.
2B races were able to be completed with just enough time for a 1 and 1 before the 3pm cutoff to run out the regatta with 7 races per division.
No protests or breakdowns were filed.

Thanks to the SUNY Maritime Cadets, who did a great job setting courses and running races in the challenging East River.

Saturday, September 16:
Peter Coleman, former Mallory Cup Champion and America's Cup sailor, gave a half hour mini-clinic before the skipper's meeting. Conditions were a consistent 5-8 knots out of the South. We raced in Long Island Sound, outside of Black Rock Harbor. 6 races were held in A fleet and 4 races in B fleet. Fun was had by all with a pizza party immediately following racing featuring Pepe's Pizza provided by Regatta Ginger Beer.

Sunday, September 17:
The morning started with a wind delay for approximately 2 hours. Conditions built to 4-5 knots out of the East-Southeast. 4 races were completed by B fleet and 2 in A fleet. For much of the morning the current was stronger than the wind so the race committee boat was facing stern to the windward mark as tide was sweeping out. Congratulations to Salve 1 in 1st place, Fordham in 2nd place, and Bates in 3rd place. Additionally, we raffled off an Oracle Team USA hat signed by skipper Jimmy Spithill.

17  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Sailing / 19 SAILORS LAUNCH 2017 FALL SEASON/WEEKEND RESULTS on: September 17, 2017, 01:30:42 pm
This is a busy weekend for the Fordham Sailing Team as 19 of the team's 29 sailors are seeing action at one of three, two-day regattas in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area.

The most competitive is the Nevins Trophy Regatta hosted by the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. It is an Intersectional competition with 20 teams coming from multiple conferencess throughout the country. It features three divisions. A & B is alternating between double-handed FJs and 420s, while C is a solo competition in Lasers.

Coach Norfleet has Mike Capetta '19 and Jamie Spence '18 sailing Races 1-10 in A Division alternating with Roberto Stevens '19 and Cortney Rielly '20 in Races 11-20. A division is currently in 16th place.

In B division, Eduardo Mintzias '21 and William Dumke '20 have our Rams in 10th place.

Brad Seferian '19 is representing Fordham in C Division and he is in 17th place.

At present, Fordham is 15th among the 20 teams competing.

Fordham entered two teams in the New York Maritime Fall Open sailed in FJs in the East River off Fort Schuyler in the Bronx. Rams #2 is in second place and Rams #1 is in fourth place. Skippering for #1 in A Division is Grace Howie '20 but I'm unable at this time to locate the identity of her crew. I suspect that Coach Norfleet entered an all-female team as Charlotte Leclue '19 & Lauren Holderman '18 are carrying the Maroon in B Division. Both divisions are currently in 6th place but 4th overall.

Rams #2 is being represented by two sophs, Tucker Hersam & Jacqueline Tobin in A Division and two frosh, Scott McKenzie & Declan Lombard in B Division. They are in second and seventh place respectively, and second overall.

At the SHU Trophy, a Mid-Atlantic & New England conference competition hosted by Sacred Heart University and sailed in Long Island Sound off St. Mary's Point in Bridgeport, our Rams are in second place among 14 teams. Currently, Thomas Cooper '19 & Emma Archard '18 are in third place in A Division while Thomas Capozzi '19 & Declan Lombard '21 lead the fleet in B Division.

I'll try to provide a summary of the three regattas tonight or sometime tomorrow.

After a productive week of practice, the team is ready to take on its first regattas this weekend! We asked Coach Norfleet to provide us with an update on the start of the season and some insight on our new squad.

Director of Sailing

Cristina Puglia '07

Coach Norfleet: "This time of year is always exciting with the start of classes, the first days back on the water, and the formation of a new team. I am very excited about how our team looks this year.  With the nine incoming sailors, we will have a final roster of twenty-nine sailors, which is the largest it has been in my time coaching the team.

We took a slightly different approach to the start of the season by not scheduling any regattas on the first weekend of competition. This has given us more practice time before our first regattas and allowed us the opportunity to focus on preparing our match race team for the qualifier at the end of the month. We were able to send eight sailors to a Dave Perry led match race clinic in Baltimore over Labor Day weekend which proved to be an invaluable training opportunity. Now we shift back to our regular practice schedule as we prepare for our first events on the water."

I thought that I might be able to convert the photo taken at the luncheon to this thread but I have not had success. Ditto the photos, which accompanied the article re: our colleague escaping from the nearly submerged car. To view the latter, one will have to google
SoutholdLocalNews and scroll down to the story about the Mattituck man escaping from the car.

If anyone knows how to post a photo, I'll be happy to e-mail a copy of the former.

Following is  what happened to Fordham 77 on his way to the luncheon.

The following is from Southold Local News, the Town website.

Mattituck man attempting to escape from submerged Jeep in flash flood is rescued by passing highway superintendent
By Katie Blasl -  Aug 18, 2017, 3:53 pm

Tom Keane was driving his Jeep through today’s sudden downpour when he encountered what appeared to be a passable puddle on Bray Avenue.

But when the 61-year-old Mattituck man attempted to drive around the flooded area of the road, his vehicle was suddenly swept into the rising waters of the adjacent sump.

“I just got pulled in,” Keane said in an interview today. “I put it in four wheel drive and nothing happened. I had no control.”

Within moments, his car was pulled nearly roof-deep into the flood. Water began pouring into the vehicle, rising above his feet. Thinking quickly, Keane rolled down his car windows so that he would not be trapped under water.

“You see this stuff on TV, so you know you have to get the windows down,” Keane said.

He began struggling to climb out of the Jeep window as the water continued to fill his car. In a fortunate twist of fate, that is exactly the moment that Southold Highway Superintendent Vincent Orlando happened across the scene.

Orlando was out checking on road conditions and the town’s overwhelmed storm drains when he noticed a light-colored SUV, half-submerged in water.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes,” Orlando said. When he pulled his truck over for a closer look, he saw the driver’s side window coming down and a person trying to get out.

Orlando said he jumped out of his truck and ran into the recharge basin, “sloshing through knee-deep water.”

“I thought, ‘Holy cow — this is like something you see on TV,’ as I made my way toward the SUV. It was raining cats and dogs,” Orlando said.

He helped the man out of the submerged vehicle and brought him to his house down the road.

“I’m just glad some angel sent me there right at that moment,” Orlando said.

Keane said that Orlando attempted to call the police, but that “he couldn’t get through because they were swamped – pardon the pun.”

“They have these little tools that will break the window if you go under water, and I’ve always thought about getting one,” Keane said, reflecting on the experience. “I think I’ll get one now.”

Per Joe...I was unable to cut & paste the photos, but the story speaks for itself.

Thank God Tom got out. A car can always be replaced! A Ram? Never!

PEPi'S is a GO!!!

The chance of precipitation has dropped from 60% to a range from 25% - 45% between Noon and 3:00 PM,
and the forecast is for a lower wind velocity.

Beyond that, I just returned from Pepi's and I was not aware that the restaurant has fold-out, see-through, canvas protection, which
they use during inclement weather. Beyond that, they will accommodate us inside, if needed.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow. As a reminder, Pepi's is on the Main Road (Route 25) in Southold, just east of Port of Egypt.

Please reconfirm your presence by IM or e-mail to

Thank you, all.

The current forecast for Southold is:
"Showers early then scattered thunderstorms developing later in the day. High 77F. Winds S at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 60%."

If this forecast occurs between noon - 3:00 PM, dining outside will be virtually impossible, as the 10-15 mph wind will be blowing the rain directly onto the terrace. The overhead canopy will be useless. Inside dining is possible but due to the smaller area within the restaurant, it is likely that our larger group this year will have less privacy. Moreover, the roundtrip "Cruise" on the Cross Sound Ferry for the three making the trip will be less than ideal.

Thus, since weather forecasts change so frequently, particularly those for the North Fork on weekends this summer, I shall check the latest forecast late tomorrow afternoon, and post a GO or NO GO, i.e. cancellation, for Friday's luncheon. Unfortunately, we have family plans for the two remaining Fridays before Labor Day, so if it is canceled, the luncheon will not be rescheduled this summer.

It's important, that this message reaches all those, who have committed to come, so if you are scheduled to join us, please acknowledge awareness of this post by confirming same to me by IM or at Thank you.


PS In the event of cancelation, all deposit checks will be voided.

Thanks, AOC. Best laugh of the day.

BTW, I'll be at the Orient Point Ferry to meet you, LXRF & Steve when you arrive at 11:40 AM. And, we'll make sure to save time to stop at THE CANDYMAN in Orient on the way to the ferry for the return trip. Among their many chocolate offerings, their Peanut Brittle is to die for!

Sorry, Ace, things became very active after a slow period. I'll pace it better and won't post more than once daily,
which should help.
