I added it to my watch list and of course, people logged it. I went back around 5 or 6 times before I finally found it. It was camo’d to the bottom of a billboard sign and it really looked like part of the structure. Up until then I thought geocaching was just Tupperware containers in bushes. (I looked in soooo many bushes around the billboard lol). Awesomely camo’d urban hides never cease to surprise and amaze me.Jennifer and the boys geocachingWhat’s the best piece of geocaching advice or information you ever learned?Always carry mosquito spray!

Watch: Virat Kohli juggles ball while waiting for Australia after tea, umpire says no

Watch: Virat Kohli juggles ball while waiting for Australia after tea, umpire says no

first_imgVirat Kohli was in a good mood as he was waiting for the Australian cricket team as he juggled the ball with his bat on the opening day of the fourth and final Test at the Sydney cricket ground on Wednesday.But Richard Kettleborough, who is one of umpires for the match, was not having any of it.As Kohli juggled the ball with his bat, Kettleborough snatched the ball away from him as the Indian captain actions may alter the condition of the ball while not even in play.Umpire Kettleborough wasn’t having a bar of it #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/DIMlS0dO1acricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 3, 2019Kohli was sent back just after play resumed, five balls to be exact, when he fell to Josh Hazlewood for 23 runs.Wickets don’t get much bigger than this!#AUSvIND | @bet365_aus pic.twitter.com/DW2by0Z9OQ cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 3, 2019Here is how Kohli was dismissed -J. Hazlewood to V. Kohli: OUT! Massive wicket for Australia. And it has come in the form of a bonus. Short of a length delivery on leg, Kohli looks to help it through the leg side and a boundary was around the corner. But unfortunately for him, he cannot get it cleanly. The ball hits the lower part of the gloves and goes towards the keeper who dives to his left to take it nicely. So a quick wicket for the Aussies after the break.The 54-run stand is broken.Some of the Australian fans joked that Kohli was ‘ball-tampering’[email protected] would have banned one of their own for that amount of ball tampering.Pat JL (@pattyboy9) January 3, 2019Brat at it again.DiPolarPilot (@DiPolarPilot) January 3, 2019Kohli was wearing pink-rimmed gloves and a bat with a pink sticker in support of the Pink Test. Every year, Australia’s New Year Test is the Pink Test and they raise funds for McGrath Foundation that works towards breast cancer awareness and aid.On Wednesday, the Pink Test saw a sea of pink at the SCG – from the wickets to the boundary lines, everything was pink in support of a noble cause of breast cancer support in honour of former Australia pacer Glenn McGrath’s wife Jane McGrath.advertisementAlso Read | Mayank Agarwal scores career-best 77, his 2nd fifty in as many TestAlso Read | Ramakant Achrekar’s passing away is a big loss to the sporting world: Narendra ModiAlso Read | KL Rahul trolled on social media after falling cheaply againlast_img read more

Heres A Timetable For When Knicks Fans Should Run Out Of Patience

Heres A Timetable For When Knicks Fans Should Run Out Of Patience

By any standard, the New York Knicks’ 2014-15 season — team President Phil Jackson’s first at the helm — has been an unmitigated disaster.It’s a fact that Jackson himself couldn’t avoid acknowledging in a message he issued to fans (particularly season-ticket holders) this week. “While I know this has been a challenging season for our team on the court, I can also tell you that everyone in the organization is working tirelessly to get our Knicks back to a place where we are once again competing at the highest level,” Jackson said.In the message, Jackson requested that fans be patient as the team works on its long-term plans. (“I ask that you remain optimistic and hope you will join us on our continued journey as we build a team that once again reflects the spirit of being a New York Knick.”) But what should Jackson’s rebuilding timetable look like? The legendary former coach signed a five-year deal last March. Given the particulars of the 2013-14 Knicks team he inherited (their average age, Simple Rating System scores relative to the league and the Eastern Conference, and the wins above replacement of their top player), how quickly should Knicks fans have expected Jackson to turn things around?To answer that question, I ran a series of logistic regressions using every non-playoff NBA team since the league expanded to 27 teams in 1989-90, estimating the likelihood of a team like the Knicks eventually returning to the postseason and reaching various SRS milestones within the five years of Jackson’s contract. These probabilities should serve as a rough guideline for how quickly the Knicks should have expected to return to respectability when Jackson came on, and when patience with Jackson should start to wear thin if the Knicks continue to languish.In some ways, Jackson is already far behind schedule. Based on historical trends, we’d expect 68 percent of Knicks-like teams to return to the playoffs within one season. (Instead, New York is currently 19.5 games out of the last playoff spot in a weak Eastern Conference.) But Jackson has also described his “ultimate goal” as bringing an NBA title back to New York after a 42-season drought, and to do that, a team typically has to be better than just a fringe playoff qualifier. The 25th percentile NBA championship team since the 1976 ABA-NBA merger had an SRS around 5 — a qualification that only five teams in 2014-15 met (after rounding up).That’s a level of performance our model says the Knicks are unlikely to attain, even within five years. But there was a 50 percent chance that the Knicks would reach the tier right below that, with an SRS of 3, by the end of Jackson’s contract. And progress toward that goal might be best judged three seasons in; while we’d expect a Knicks-like team to post an SRS of 3 within two seasons less than a third of the time, the probability of checking off that milestone within three seasons was 44 percent.In other words, while the Knicks have been absolutely awful this season, it’s still too early to ignore Jackson’s pleas for patience if building a contending team is the goal. We probably won’t really know what kind of progress he’s made in that direction for another couple of seasons. read more
