00o00'q:ase CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Jan. 25 - Jan. 31, 2002 - 89 . SP()RTS & OUTDOORS '" Cape hoop, wrestlinl ; teams hit for cycle.versus Raiders Michael Wright drives past Woodbridge's Sharone Sampson Jan. 22, en route to a layup in a Cape victory. By Dave Frederick The Weather Channel calls it the January thaw in the greater northeast, but at Cape's Little Big House things are hot. The Vikings ran the table last week defeating the Woodbridge Blue Raiders in boys and girls basket- ball and in wrestling. In winter sports, Henlopen Conference tearrls come around the competitive wheel for a cycle of contests, including both bas- ketball teams and wrestling. "Some people still think we are behind the glory days of the 70s and 80s, but there are not many schools that get us in the winter in a best two-of-three format. And if you add our swimming teams and indoor track we could argue to be among the best athletic programs along with Caesar Rodney," said Cape Athletic Director Bud Hitchens. The Vikings' over-achieving girls basketball team posted a pair of victories.over the last week on the road at always tough Indian River followed by a 91-16 shel- lacking of Woodbridge at home. The team that most fans think they could coach better is an in- credible 8-3 at the mid-season Continued on page 90 Dan Cook photos Woodbridge grappler Ricky Hughes gets ready to slip out of the grasp of Cape's Grog Swift during a 140-pound match Jan. 23 in the Viking gym. Hughes would go on to pin Swift at 3:24, but the Vikings would go on to win the match 56-15. Ray Lewis' fur coat looke:qt like 20 years of Don King hair shavings FAKE FIGHT - The pre- planned fracas between Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis went awry last week when Iron Mike lost control and started flailing at everything from two and half feet up down to the floor. And it is al- most for sure that he bit the leg of Lewis, although the Lewis han- dlers said they didn't want to talk about it. I mean, what's a set of teeth marks compared to a $25 million payday? But it just may be that Tyson is a not so fine a cannibal. This sucker bit pieces of ear off Evander Holyfield on Pay-Per-View and now sports fans are supposed to forget about it. Tyson is one sick individual. He is a menace to society. Any sport that has a Mike Tyson at the top of the heap ain't no sport at all. Sure, I'm watching the fight if it happens. That's my job. Dave Frederick BAY RAY - I want Ray Lewis to go away. From the murder in- dictment in Atlanta to his Super Bowl MVP, I'm just sick of Lewis and his stupid bandanna and ear- rings and that mangy overgrown fur coat he wore last Sunday for PEOPLE IN SPORTS post-game interviews. What-ani- mals had to be destroyed to put a coat together that looked like 20 years of Don King hair shavings? I know I'm going off here, but some of these professional ath- letes are getting tiresome. Why can't they all be like Donovan McNabb? THE GIRLS CAN'T HELP IT - The Cape girls rode the Blue Raiders of Wo0dbridge for a 91- 16 victory Jan. 22, prompting much discussion on local WGMD morning radio. "I think that's terrible, Dan. Do the girls still play with two rovers and six players?" "I don't know. I'd actually have to go to a game to find out and the knowledge is not worth the time investment." "What?" "I'm not going to a game. No way? . But I think they play with the same number as the boys. Maybe one of our listeners will call in and tell us how many that is." Ring? "Dan. Do you know yester- day's lotto number?" "We're talking about girls bas- ketball." "Why?" "I'm curious if you think it's all right to run up the scoi:e on an in- ept opponent.' "I ran up my husband's credit cards after I found out he had an- other family in Florida. Is that the same thing?" "The same thing as what?" "I don't know. What are we talking about?" NOT FUNNY - I will not make a joke about young people who play for a team that quite often loses games by 70 points. A bas- ketball team that once or twice has not broken double figures except. in the Peebles dressing room mir- ror. Wait, that was a joke. Sorry. Cape basketball coach Ralph Bayko would never run upthe score unless he was coaching the Steelers against the Eagles in the Super Bowl. The Woodbridge girls team is just that bad and they should drop to a JV schedule or just drop completely. " BAD TO THE BOSELLI - Five years ago when Jacksonville was in Baltimore to open the sea- son at Memorial Stadium, my nephew, Mike Frederick, had got- ten the start at right defensive end. Coach Tom Coughlin of the Jaguars sent Mike congratulations before the game because Mike had roomed with Coughlin's son his senior year at UVA. "Mike, it's great news that you will get your first NFL start. Un- fortunately the bad news is you get Boseili." Left tackle Boselli was recog- nized as the baddest and meanest tackle in the league. Jon Runyon couldn't hold his jock unless Boselli wanted him too. Wait? Was that a joke? Sorry. The Jags put Boselli up for the expansion draft and Coughlin and left-hand- ed quarterback Mark Brunell were not happy. "What about my left flank?" Brunell cried rhetorically. "What about it?" BAYCENTER - Come to the BayCenter Friday night for the Cape Henlopen lacrosse fundrais- er. There's a silent auction with all kinds of great items, including framed Donovan McNabb and Kordell Stewart photos from Dan Cook, who doesn't know how good he is so don't compliment him. You would pay hundreds for these photos if they were signed and we just may be able to get that done for you. The Funsters will be there and I will be on their bar tab. ..
