Joseph Guylas was such a frequent patron of Thistledown racetrack in Cleveland that his recent obituary in the Akron Beacon Journal read: "In lieu of flowers, it is suggested that a small wager in Joe's honor be made on a nag at the track. Do not expect it to win. It celebrates Joe's ascension to the great race track in the sky where he will enjoy considerably more luck."

Joseph Guylas was such a frequent patron of Thistledown racetrack in Cleveland that his recent obituary in the Akron Beacon Journal read: "In lieu of flowers, it is suggested that a small wager in Joe's honor be made on a nag at the track. Do not expect it to win. It celebrates Joe's ascension to the great race track in the sky where he will enjoy considerably more luck."

No Lead Is Safe

Boston University scored 12 runs in the top of the first inning against Tufts last Thursday, and after two innings, the Terriers had a 15-0 lead. Their offense hardly let up after that, but the bats of Tufts came aliveā€”so much so that after eight innings, the score was 24-24. In the ninth, BU scored one more run and shut out Tufts to win 25-24. Said Terrier coach Bill Mahoney, "I am looking to fire our defensive coordinator as soon as we get back."
