STORRS, Conn. – The NCAA has determined that UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma committed a secondary rules violation when he made a phone call congratulating Little League pitching star Mo’ne Davis last month, the school announced Thursday.

Athletic Director Warde Manuel said the school accepts the decision but does not agree with it.

Auriemma told reporters Wednesday that he talked to the 13-year-old Philadelphia girl at Little League headquarters during the Little League World Series after a friend of his in the Philadelphia 76ers organization suggested it.

Wow, talk about Pharisees.

I think this “rule” needs to be reexamined.

The volunteers at Find A Grave seem to be largely people like Kenney—retired and looking for a hobby. Paul R has uploaded 289,847 photos since joining the site in 2010. “I am retired so I have time to walk through the cemeteries and take pictures,” he writes in his bio. Other people seem to be fascinated by cemeteries themselves.

My kind of hobby.

Now to apply drone technology.

Laff!

Eliminate all the fresh air and exercise!
