random deafsports thoughts

see this headline:

The NBA has become the first major U.S. sports league to sign an official
betting sponsor.

for a long time, the American Athletic Association of the Deaf was a
haven for hard core deaf gamblers that wanted to place bets on
contending deaf basketball teams. Attendance at these national
tournaments have been pretty much packed.

The AAAD has changed to USA Deaf Basketball, which no longer
allows betting on games. Attendance at these tournaments, while
satisfactory, did not reach these AAAD attendance levels.

Either times have changed – or – deaf gamblers looked for
different venues to place their bets.

Yes, gambling and sports, do not mix, either deaf or hearing!

Derrick Coleman update

from a Falcons posting

Rookie Daniel Marx leading fullback battle

The Falcons didn’t get much from Derrick Coleman at fullback last year
and were obviously missing Patrick DiMarco at times. So, they brought in
three new faces to compete for the spot this year.

Stanford’s Daniel Marx looks to be coach Dan Quinn’s favorite and he
got first-team reps today.

note:
not good news for Derrick, but it is still early in the
pre-season. Too many things could happen

……………………………………………..

past Gallaudet athlete becomes school superintendent

Luanne Barron, a past top notch Gallaudet volleyball
player, has been appointed as the new superintendent
at Kansas School for the Deaf.

She also represented USA in the Deaflympics in the past.

Congrats, Luanne.
