Bo was a sheet metal worker by trade and worked for Finsteads for a number of years. He was an avid fisherman, which is why he was able to start his first business “Bo’s Anchor Release.” He received a patent on it in September 1981. He has been lucky enough to ship them all over the world. The last number stamped on his anchor release system was 17,615. He was also a bird watcher, which is why he started his second business of “Hummer’s Heated Delight” in January 2013. He loved his hummingbirds.

If there is a way to describe Bo, it would be that he was an amazing individual. He would stop what he was doing to help anyone else out anytime. He guaranteed all of his products one of the main reasons his businesses were so successful. If you asked him about his biggest achievement, he would tell you that it was his family. He believed that he was the most spoiled man alive. He always commented on how happy he was. He never complained. He always felt blessed and he had the biggest heart. He was an incredible role model for everyone he came into contact with. His shoes will be impossible to fill.

Bo is survived by his wife, Sharon; his son, Steve Wacken; daughters, Teresa DeVaney and Michelle Fisher; siblings, Vern, Don and James “Tim” Bolen,

sports polo shirts New boss of Van Dal shoes outlines determination to build a future for the company

The Florida Group’s management team, led by managing director Tony Linford, have finalised the buy out from chairman Simon Goodman and family. It represents a change of ownership for the company founded by Mr Goodman’s grandfather Adelman Goodman in the early 1900s.

The Florida Group (TFG) is based in Dibden Road and specialises in manufacturing and retailing quality ladies’ branded footwear, predominantly under the brand Van Dal. It was founded in the early 1900s by Adelman Goodman, grandfather of Simon Goodman, the current chairman.

In a city where there were once 30 shoe factories, employing 10pc of the total workforce, TFG is now the last remaining still in mass production. Norwich is the historical home for ladies footwear leaving the company as the last remaining maker of traditional ladies shoes in the UK.

The group also distributes for Marc and is an agent for Pikolinos in the UK and Ireland. The company also manufactures shoes from their Norwich factory for other brands looking to gain a reputation for Made in England products that are sold both in the UK and worldwide.

Under the deal, Mr Goodman will step down as chairman, although he will retain a stake. As well as Mr Linford, the management team involved in the buy out comprises head of product Claire Farmer,
ralph lauren polo dresses for women New boss of Van Dal shoes outlines determination to build a future for the company
head of marketing Jason Larke, head of finance and HR Pamela Clarke, and head of logistics Anne Mette Christensen, all of whom become directors of the company.

Mr Linford joined The Florida Group in 2008, recruiting the current management team in the ensuing 12 months.

Simon Goodman said: “As I have approached retirement, my primary concern has been to secure the future of the Florida Group and the people who work within the company. I am delighted that this is now set to happen.

“This is a really strong leadership team which is ideally placed to take the company into the future, and I step down in the knowledge that this great business is in safe hands.”

Mr Linford said: “I and my management team are really pleased that we have been able to agree this management buy out. The Florida Group, and its brands, has such a strong presence in the shoe trade.

“The team and I have exciting plans to take the company forward. We plan to expand the business, taking advantage of the opportunities being presented by changes in the footwear industry. We will announce more detailed plans in due course.

“After so many years in the hands of the Goodman family, I feel privileged to be taking the helm of such a great business,

and I am determined to build a future for the company which is as distinguished as its history to date.”

polo crew neck sweatshirts new techniques to Eastern Montana

women s polo shirt new techniques to Eastern Montana

Scientists who dig dinosaurs in Eastern Montana will now be able to chemically analyze fossils the same day they’re excavated and before degrading begins. Paleontologists from Montana State University, North Carolina State University and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences recently bought and renovated a mobile laboratory that Dan Redding of Rudyard drove to Eastern Montana for the summer.

The lab is the first of its kind and a dream come true, said Mary Higby Schweitzer, a North Carolina paleontologist who obtained the lab with Jack Horner, who is the Ameya Preserve curator of paleontology at MSU’s Museum of the Rockies. Schweitzer is a paleontologist at NC State and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. She is also a Montana native and former graduate student of Horner’s.

Schweitzer’s hypothesis is that fossils can stay deep in the ground for 68 million years and because they are in equilibrium with their sandstone environment, they can remain in nearly their original state. It was a deep sandstone environment that preserved the soft tissue Schweitzer discovered a few years ago in the specimen “MOR 1125,” dubbed B. Rex, found near Jordan, Mont. Schweitzer also found tissue that showed the Tyrannosaurus rex was an egg laying female.

Degradation began, however, as soon as field crews removed fossils from the ground and disrupted their equilibrium, Schweitzer said. Changing conditions and exposure to microbes all affected the fossils’ condition.

To get a jump on the process and document it as it progresses, NC State provided funding for Schweitzer to purchase the lab and deliver it to MSU. The Museum of the Rockies then paid to adapt the lab for paleontology research. Horner paid for the renovations with money from Colorado Energy Management, which represented an anonymous donor, and Nathan Myrhvold, former chief technology officer at Microsoft. Army to use at Superfund sites. At NC State, it was used as a fish ecology lab.

“It was really an amazing system,” Schweitzer said. “I think if you were to build a trailer like this, it would cost well over $1 million.”

Schweitzer and Horner recently discussed the laboratory while it was parked near the Museum of the Rockies for renovations. Helping with the work were Ben Novak, one of Horner’s graduate students, and Liz Johnson and Tim Cleland, both Schweitzer’s students.

Almost half of the semi truck contains a clean laboratory that will require users to don lab coats, lab shoes, gloves and hairnets before entering, Schweitzer said. The rest of the truck contains microscopes, work stations and a computer. Next year, it may also contain a scanning electron microscope and mass spectrometer with analytical capabilities. The entire truck has electricity, air conditioning and heating. It has room underneath for wastewater, diesel fuel and gear.

“It’s fun. It’s cool. It’s the first of its kind,” Schweitzer said. “It always makes me happy to come back to Montana, and this new lab is a huge bonus.”

Horner said he and Schweitzer wanted to establish a research center, but didn’t have enough money so decided to create the mobile lab. The lab will be parked in Eastern Montana during the summer and used by Schweitzer, Horner, their graduate students and visiting colleagues. The rest of the year, it will be parked and used at the Museum of the Rockies.

Along with the lab comes a new way of excavation, Horner said. This summer, instead of painstakingly removing sediment and rock from fossils, then stabilizing the fossils with plaster, the paleontologists will use cranes to remove two duckbill skeletons from Bureau of Land Management property. The workers will remove entire skeletons and encase them sediment and all in metal frames.

“We are going to take them out whole, regardless of how big they are,” Horner said.

The idea is to learn more about fossil preservation, he said. The paleontologists are thinking now that the best preservation comes when bones are buried deep in sandstone.

polo ralph lauren outlet store Neiman Marcus among stores coming to revamped Riverwalk

NEW ORLEANS, La. The makeover of the old Riverwalk Mall has attracted huge national retailers as tenants. It is another indication that confidence in the city economy is growing.Stretched along the riverfront for decades, the Riverwalk has long been a part of the city fabric. The revamped retail center will be called “The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk.””We think it going to be a nice catalyst for the rebirth of retail in the city of New Orleans, not just downtown, but across the city,” said Mark Bulmash, Sr. Vice President of Development for the Howard Hughes Corporation.The interior of the once struggling retail center has been gutted, and plans for the new space have enticed national retailers, including some that have never operated in Louisiana. Among them, Neiman Marcus Last Call Studio. It will be the first Neiman Marcus store in the state. Polo Association Outlet, New Balance Factory Shoes, and Sunglass Warehouse are among dozens of other tenants.Many local restaurants like Caf du Monde and Raising Cane are among the new eateries that will be a part of the Riverwalk.”We think it a really compelling retail mix [and] that there will be a little something for everybody,” Bulmash said.As part of the redevelopment, 50,000 square feet will be added, for a total of 250,000 square feet of retail space next to the Hilton Riverside Hotel. Almost all of the space is rented, with 94 percent of the leases executed, according to the Howard Hughes Corporation.The Downtown Development District is thrilled.”It a tremendous benefit to downtown and to the city, because recent studies have shown $1.9 billion of retail sales have seeped out of this city because we didn have a place for people to shop,” said Anthony Carter, Director of Finance and Administration for the DDD.But instilling confidence in national retailers to be part of the redevelopment of the Riverwalk didn happen overnight.”We seeing a lot better response to our inquiries with tenants now than we did two and half years ago when we first tried to get them interested in New Orleans and the opportunity,” Bulmash said. “Back then it really was an issue. The question that kept being asked of us was, why New Orleans? They really hadn thought about the city since Katrina.”It was a turnaround in perception about the city that the DDD was confident would come.”We showing there is vibrant life downtown, and national retailers are paying attention to that,” said Carter.Bulmash expects the project to create about 700 construction jobs and the same amount of retail jobs, although not all of them will be full time.Sales taxes from the Riverwalk once it reopens by the summer of 2014 are estimated to be $6.9 million annually. The Eagle is expected to sign a 4 year deal with the Saints. This is a surprise: Eagles CB Patrick Robinson, due to be a free agent in 2 hours, is expected to sign a 4 year deal with the Saints. Back where it all began. He was drafted in 2010, 32nd overall. The Eagle is expected to sign a 4 year deal with the Saints.

polo coupon 2012 New Nike uniforms will lift Cavs’ merchandise business

polo shirt uniforms New Nike uniforms will lift Cavs’ merchandise business

Cavs fans are swoosh backersNBA fans strongly prefer Nike over Adidas, according to surveys compiled by YouGov, and the gap between the apparel providers is even stronger when it comes to Cavs fans. A look at the findings:

Among adults who claim that the NBA is one of their top interests

Thanks to two players LeBron James and Kyrie Irving who sell more signature shoes than anyone else in the league, the Cavs are more closely aligned with Nike than any NBA team.

Or, at the very least, any team aside from maybe Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets.

And it’s the Cavs one of the few organizations that are dramatically changing their look for the 2017 18 season that might have the most to gain from the NBA’s switch to Nike as the league’s exclusive oncourt apparel provider.

Matt Balvanz, a senior vice president of analytics at Navigate Research, told Crain’s he wouldn’t be surprised if the NBA’s merchandise sales jump 30% in the first year of the deal with Nike.

The increase could be higher for the Cavs, Balvanz said, because of the combination of their fans preferring Nike over Adidas (the league’s previous apparel provider) and the team’s significant design changes, which the Cavs told Crain’s they likely will unveil in early to mid August.

Chicago based Navigate Research pulled numbers from YouGov’s database that show Cavs fans prefer Nike over Adidas by a 1.5 to 1 margin and are 2.6 times more likely to be current Nike customers than that of Adidas. The biggest margin and the most significant for a team that’s set to unveil new uniforms is between Cavs fans who, according to YouGov’s surveys, intend to purchase Nike apparel (35%) and those who say they’ll buy Adidas products (1%).

Those numbers are obviously influenced by James who has a lifetime deal with Nike that business partner Maverick Carter has said is worth more than $1 billion and Irving. The latter’s Nike signature shoes are the second best sellers among NBA players, topping the likes of Golden State Warriors stars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant.

“I think they’re so good at marketing and branding, and telling a story,” Dan Mannix, the president and CEO of New York based LeadDog Marketing Group, said of Nike, which reportedly will pay the NBA $1 billion over eight years for the official apparel rights.

Still, the potential sales lift for the Cavs’ new Nike uniforms will depend on how well they’re received. On May 31, the team unveiled a new collection of logos,
polo coupon 2012 New Nike uniforms will lift Cavs' merchandise business
and introduced black to its permanent color palette.

Soon, fans will get to see how the team and Nike incorporate the logos into its uniform collection.

“From an innovation standpoint, it really ties to what’s the fans’ response?” Mannix said. “Is it something that resonates with people? That’s something you’ll know pretty quickly just by tracking social (media) and listening to what people’s reactions are.”

James and Irving ranked second and fifth, respectively, in NBA jersey sales during the 2016 17 season, and the Cavs finished second to the Warriors in the team merchandise rankings.

But even with the lift that has been provided by James’ return, three consecutive trips to the NBA Finals and the long awaited 2016 championship, merchandise revenue, according to a team source, is eight to 10 times smaller than the money generated by the club’s robust ticket sales. Of the Cavs’ team controlled revenues, merchandise sales account for a percentage that’s in the low to mid single digits, the source said.

And once the franchise’s total revenues, which include the team’s cut of the monstrous national TV deals with ESPN and Turner Sports, are factored in, the merchandise percentage drops into the low single digits, the source said.

Part of the reason for that is any Cavs merchandise that is sold nationally or internationally goes into the league’s revenue pool, which is divided evenly among the NBA’s 30 teams and is classified as basketball related income (giving the players a sizable chunk, too).

The areas in which the Cavs can significantly benefit from the new uniforms and the switch to Nike, though, are their team controlled shops online and at Quicken Loans Arena. A portion of those sales still go to the players, but the revenue isn’t split with the rest of the league.

It should also be noted that the 2017 18 season won’t be the first in which Cavs fans can purchase a jersey with Nike’s iconic swoosh logo.

The apparel giant has been an NBA marketing partner for 25 years,
polo coupon 2012 New Nike uniforms will lift Cavs' merchandise business
and Nike branded “Swingman” jerseys (higher caliber replicas that the Cavs sold for $80 to $90 in their team shop last season) have been sold for years.

Yet any fan who wants the Cavs’ most up to date look might be compelled to purchase authentic (Adidas jerseys that went for about $300 last season) or replica jerseys produced by Nike.

nike polo shirts New boxing gym gives Parkinson patients a fighting chance

polo posey New boxing gym gives Parkinson patients a fighting chance

“Because there’s no cure for Parkinson’s, even the neurologists can’t really suggest, they give you medicine and send you home and say, ‘Exercise’, that’s it,” Joan said.

Last year, a friend told the Billingsleys about a program that seemed to be working for others.

It’s called Rock Steady Boxing, but the nearest gym was in Grand Rapids.

After driving a couple hours a few times to try it out, they tried to set up their own gym at home.

“You know, it doesn’t work if the wife is pushing the husband,” Joan said.

But they do listen to coach Stacey Hannah, a massage therapist and physical therapy student who opened the gym in Midland after learning about the program from the Billingsleys.

“The hardest thing is to walk through the door the first time,” Hannah said.

The fighters aren’t here to win an Olympic medal. They just want a fighting chance against simple, everyday battles.

“There’s no coffee talk, no chit chat. We keep it right on pace because once you’re warmed up, the rigidity, you have to stay warm and you’ve got to keep moving,” Hannah said. “Until they say, ‘Oh, I can hold my fork better, I can brush my teeth, or I can carry groceries, I can hug my grandkids, or get up off the floor’, because of the falls. They hate this, but it’s a necessity, because everybody falls.”

Hannah is the head coach.

“It’s intimidating to think it’s a boxing gym, but then when you walk in here, you think,
nike polo shirts New boxing gym gives Parkinson patients a fighting chance
‘Oh, this is not like a Rocky movie’,” she said.

She went through the national training and opened her gym in May.

“We’re more empathetic, but tough. I don’t let you get away with not doing your best you can do that day,” Hannah said.

On this day, Neal, Tom and Larry are the fighters, and then there’s Maryann and Joan who are cornermen.

“The nice thing about Rock Steady is that the corner man can come, see my T shirt, is there to help the fighter,” Joan said.

For these fighters, it seems to be working.

Joan sees Tom’s transformation every day.

“He can tie his own shoes, he walks without shuffling, he is more interacting with people, he just, there’s so many little things,” she said.

White feels it too.

“I’ve gotten rid of most of the muscle rigidity that goes with Parkinson’s, lot fewer of the muscle cramps, which are not fun. I’ve been able to decrease my meds,” he said.

So why does this program work for so many people?

“We’re improving your quality of life from day one. Yes, your medicine is great, I can’t stop your tremors, but I can give you the strength to combat them,” Hannah said.

No one knows for sure, but research suggests it could be that this program is using different parts of the brain.

“It is all for fine motor skills, heavy, firing different parts of the brain. Heavy, enforced exercise to push them beyond their perceived limitations,” Hannah said.

v neck polo New tenants fill the courtyard at Suburban Square

polo boats New tenants fill the courtyard at Suburban Square

“This is how it’s supposed to be.”

That was General Manager Mark Bachus Curran, taking in the scene in the courtyard at Suburban Square one sunny morning recently. A little farther up the plaza, people were sitting at tables reading, enjoying a cup of coffee or working on their laptops.

After a major renovation in late 2011, this signature space in Ardmore’s historic open air shopping center is coming into its own in summer 2013.

That includes filling in what had been a row of vacant storefronts with new tenants. That morning, Curran was leading a visitor on a tour to highlight some of the newest.

Crumbs Bake Shop, a new location of the trendy New York based gourmet cupcake bakery, opened June 14, and a second newcomer, the “fabulously British” teen and college crowd apparel store Jack Wills welcomed its first shoppers on Tuesday. A third new store, SEE Eyewear, is under renovation and expected to open around the corner on Coulter Avenue by mid July.

With a Clark’s shoe store and the frozen yogurt bar Frutti Yummi opening before Memorial Day, five new merchants have set up shop in the past two months, and there are more to come, possibly by back to school time.

Signs are up in the windows of two more courtyard storefronts. This week, Curran confirmed that leases have been signed for a Ten Thousand Villages gift and craft store and a Kate Spade New York boutique.

Finally, he said Everything But Water, a swimwear and apparel store, has also signed to take the Seidenburg Luggage space on St. James Place, when owner Dave Endy retires and closes up shop at the end of July.

What is notable is that, with the Ten Thousand Villages and Kate Spade leases, the courtyard’s retail spaces, which had seen numerous vacancies, will be fully occupied again.

Curran gave great credit to the center’s marketing and leasing team. “I think they have done a phenomenal job,” he said. With 25 years’ experience in shopping center management, “This is the first time I’ve witnessed this much activity” in such a short time, he said.

It was almost three years ago that Suburban Square owner Kimco Realty came to Lower Merion Township with plans for a $1.5 million renovation of the center’s core space. At the time, representatives said they were looking to revive the courtyard, where they said the center was having trouble attracting foot traffic.

The plans included refreshed landscaping, new pavers, improvements at the upper end on St. James Place for a potential festival area, and a new driveway loop for valet parking. A key part of the plan was to attract a new upscale restaurant tenant to anchor the space.

That restaurant, The Saint James, opened last October. It got off to a rocky start with some critical reviews, but if local social media is an indication, it is becoming a regular dining and meeting spot for Main Line neighbors.

In filling other spaces, Curran said the center has continued to look back to a survey it did in 2010. That research showed shoppers were looking for “more dining options, more shoes, more accessories.”

In 2012, high end bridal salon Elizabeth Johns took the prominent corner space at the top of the courtyard previously held by Priscilla of Boston. Filling in more spaces in the row with the new Saint James are the two stores that opened in recent days.

Crumbs Bake Shop, which began with one store on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in 2003, was early in catching onto the gourmet cupcake craze. The chain now has more than 70 stores, including one near Rittenhouse Square. Located in a space adjoining the lobby of the Times office building, it is modeled on an old fashioned candy shop, with wood cases and marble countertops.

The chain claims to offer 50 varieties of cupcakes, with a new “cupcake of the week” each Monday, as well as special occasion cakes. Cupcakes come in Taste (a bite or two), Signature (think about sharing) and Colossal (serves six to eight) sizes. The store also serves Starbucks coffee and other drinks. “More sweets” is how Bachus Curran describes its fit with that survey research.

Farther down the courtyard, in the former Lucy space, the Britain based Jack Wills chain is making Ardmore its first Philadelphia suburban location, after opening a store on Walnut Street in the city. (See related story.)

“We’re very excited about them. They don’t go into malls. They thought Suburban Square was a really good fit for their concept,” Curran said. That concept draws inspiration from British “public school” style and sporting design think polo, rugby and rowing. “Their core market is 13 to 24. It’s a younger demographic, which we like to see.”

Filling out that side of the courtyard will be Ten Thousand Villages, next to The Saint James in the former Apricot Lane space, and Kate Spade in the corner spot previously occupied by City Sports until its move a short distance away.

The Lancaster County based non profit chain Ten Thousand Villages emphasizes fair trade practices and focuses on providing a market for artisans in developing countries. Kate Spade, featuring designer handbags, apparel and accessories, is a luxury brand that strengthens that component of the tenant mix, Curran said.

Moving around the corner on Coulter Avenue, the hip optical store SEE Eyewear will open next month, making Suburban Square the chain’s first Pennsylvania location. “These days, glasses can be a fashion statement,” Curran said, and SEE Eyewear is dedicated to that principle. The store, which will offer eye exams, works directly with “forward looking designers” to provide leading edge style at reasonable cost: “Hip without the rip,” is its motto.

As for that major investment in the courtyard renovation, it is clearly paying off, not only in terms of attracting trend setting tenants, but by contributing to Suburban Square’s tradition as one of America’s first open air “lifestyle centers.”

In that 2010 survey, Curran recalls, an illuminating point was that “50 percent of people said they come to Suburban Square not intending to make a purchase.” It is “the feel of Suburban Square” they enjoy. “It’s a true neighborhood center on the Main Line.”

“But that translates into sales,” he added, noting that sales for the center “have been positive and have remained positive for the last several years,” through the economic downturn.

A couple of key vacancies remain. A large space on Montgomery Avenue remains empty almost a year after Jay Michael Salon left. Plate restaurant’s departure in May after 10 years on Coulter Avenue leaves that space available. Curran said there has been “a lot of interest” in the location.

No announcement on that spot yet, but “I feel pretty confident there will be another success story for that space,” he said.

He’s quite dynamic and athletic (see highlights below). You are correct that NEPSAC rules state you must be 19 or younger on Sept 1 to be eligible to play interscholastic sports in the upcoming academic year. NEPSAC covers basically every prep school in New England and certainly all of West 1 regardless of Founders status. However, this does not imply that the age limit is 19. You must be 19 or younger Sept 1st. This means you can turn 20 Sept 2 and be eligible to play all 3 seasons. There are certainly not a bunch of 20 year olds running around West 1 but, assuming they were born after Sept 1, they would be eligible.

I took an unofficial tally of the talent on the consensus preseason Top 4 in West 1. Alphabetically :Avon, Brunswick, Deerfield, Salisbury.

Between the seniors, juniors, and PGs I counted 54 D1 commits, 17 of whom are ranked in Recruiting Rundown’s Top 100 of the classes of 2018, 2019, and 2017 for the PGs. There’s another 12 that are either seniors going top D3 or juniors that look like they’ll go that level or mid tier D1. That’s an average of 16.5 high level upperclassmen per team, and I probably missed a few guys. I also didn’t account for any prodigious frosh/sophs or great athletes who play lacrosse as a second sport.

Only a handful of states (in their entirety) have as much talent as what’s loaded onto these four teams. Is this an especially strong year/s at the top, or simply a matter of Recruiting Rundown, Youtube, Twitter, and other sources making it easy to see what’s always been the case?

About the norm. The boarding schools draw from all over the US and Canada. Wick has Westchester and Fairfield locked down like you can’t believe, in the club scene and in the communities. All these schools recruit specifically for lax. It’s a big player pool for both boarding and Wick.

In Bronxville, Larchmont, Harrison, Rye, Greenwich, Bedford, upscale parts of Stamford, Darien, New Canaan, Rowayton, Westport, and Fairfield the best athletes are lax players who started playing before 7. Not only that, but in addition to poaching from public schools, these schools all have feeders. Jits is easy to find. If you’re lacking somewhere you can always get it out the mud and find a new soulja from the skreets. Plug and play homieDo top D1 recruits ever choose to go D3? You look at these all star games and 5 Star recruit lists and 100% are alway committed to D1 schools? I’m assuming that there must be cases of a top 10 recruit going D3.

Does anyone think it’s wrong to see stud D1 lacrosse players with very average (at best) academic standings committed to elite schools like Duke, Virginia, Cornell, etc.? I know it’s a lot worse in other sports but it just never sits right with me to see kids who would never get into these institutions if not for their athletic ability.

Great example but, curious, was Fay highly recruited coming out of HS? Interesting, Spencer is the best in class attackman now, despite being ranked behind other ‘high profile’ attackmen in his class.

I always find it interesting that the bulk of the kids rated in the top of recruiting magazines and websites all have chosen larger D1 schools. The reality is, there’s a ton of politics out there. Lots of laziness and self fulfilling prophesies. From the d1 coaches to the people (many times non players and outsiders themselves) rating the kids. It’s easy to say a kid is “elite” talent when a top 20 D1 program recruits them. But how many of those top D1 recruits pan out? How many kids are missed in the recruiting issues blow up in the D3 scene?

The answer is, A LOT.

It doesn’t get as many clicks to say that the kid heading to Tufts, Gettysburg or Vassar is better than the kid going to Lafayette, Binghamton, Siena. But that’s often true. The top 30 D3 schools regularly out recruit the bottom third of D1.

I’d also warn to not mistake size or division for quality of academics. There are some exceptionally good (and bad) academic institutions in both D1 and D3. As the UNC fiasco has finally revealed, there are also majors and special classes for lower end student athletes.

I have a very good friend that did well in hs but got into Cornell to play lacrosse. You would not consider him Ivy material outside of lacrosse. Good student, but not great. But I don’t ever begrudge kids like him because I see sports similar to any other extra curricular that kids get admitted to schools for all the time being an eagle scout, debate, choir, instrument student government, newspaper, etc. etc. IMO the goal of many colleges is to have a diverse student body. And good for the kids that can get into a school they might not otherwise by playing lacrosse. I say, use it if you can!

“I never knew no Godfather. I got my own family, Senator.”

Colin Minicus is another example. I can’t imagine there is a D1 roster that wouldn’t happily find room for a 2x AA from Darien. NESCAC always has some guys with big time game but opt for the small college experience.

Models walk the runway at the Ralph Lauren Fall 2014 fashion show during New York Fashion Week at St. Ralph Lauren’s runway show happened to come around the height of Thursday’s winter snowstorm, with a fierce wind whipping down the Greenwich Village streets near his showroom to such an extent that some people were taking cover against the sides of buildings, and shielding their faces from sleet.

Once they got to the building, they had to climb over mounds of powdery snow. Pity or admire? those who still felt they should arrive in fashionable heels.

Like Ashley Kozel from Sarasota, Fla., dressed in Louboutin pumps. “It’s fashion over function,” said Kozel, who had actually hitched a ride on her boyfriend’s back for a few yards to avoid stepping in the ice and snow.

Most people made the more practical choice, wearing chunky snow boots or at least rubber rain boots. But come they did, undeterred by the conditions.

For their troubles, they were awarded with not one fashion show, but two. First on the runway was Lauren’s new, casual Polo collection. Then came his more glamorous Women’s Collection.

In casual clothes, Lauren featured sweaters in bright colours bright orange or neon green, for example with short leather skirts. An orange quilted parka seemed warm enough to wear out into the storm. A tan leather fringe jacket was more autumn like. A black motorcycle jacket bore whimsical patches like one for Penzoil.

Shoes included clog sandals, hiking boots, and black patent Mary Janes.

Then came the more formal collection: Flannel suits, cashmere coats and jackets in colours like pale pink and cream,

a shearling cape, a “Mongolian lamb” wrap. The shorter dresses were paired with tight fitting, over the knee boots.

A series of evening dresses were strikingly simple, focusing on the quality of form and fabric: They came in lavender crepe, pearl grey flannel, silk in pale pink or in a gorgeous grey shade.

Actress Kim Basinger was effusive afterward, even teary.

“I was invited by the Lauren family, and I am just so thrilled, I mean . I’ve loved him for so many years. I’ve loved everything he’s done from vintage to, my God, this show.
