Baseball Ohio State leaves no inches to spare in 54 comeback win

Senior reliever Seth Kinker snags a comeback hit to finish off Ohio State’s 5-4 win against Indiana on April 21. Credit: Mac Connor | Ohio State AthleticsSenior third baseman Noah McGowan pulled a ball hard off of Hoosier reliever Grant Sloan in the the bottom of the seventh inning, and it cleared the left-field fence by a foot to give the Buckeyes their first lead of the day.Ohio State (26-11, 7-5 Big Ten) needed every inch to mount a 5-4 comeback win in spite of itself against the No. 8 Indiana Hoosiers (29-7, 7-3 Big Ten) Saturday at Bill Davis Stadium. “It’s such a fine line [between winning and losing],” head coach Greg Beals said. “We came out on the good side of the line today.”It was an important victory for what Ohio State wants to accomplish this season.“I would say it was a must-win,” senior reliever Seth Kinker said. “We want to prove that we can beat the best teams out there.”After McGowan launched the home run, Kinker came out from the bullpen in the next half inning and delivered his ninth save of the season with two innings of shutout pitching.It seemed for much of the game that Ohio State was just beating up on itself. The Buckeyes had issues with fundamental baseball plays during the second inning, leading to all four Indiana runs.It started on a one-out RBI triple by junior second baseman Matt Gorski. West had the Hoosier beat on the throw to third, but McGowan failed to cover the bag. Next batter, Buckeye starter Ryan Feltner leapt up to grab a chopped ground ball and fired home well ahead of Gorski. Catcher Jacob Barnwell was unable to handle the rushed throw from Feltner and could not make the tag.Indiana scored its final run of the inning on a hit batter with the bases loaded.“[Baseball]’s not really like football, [where] if you have the best athletes you’re going to win every game,” McGowan said. “It’s more of, you’ve gotta play clean, whoever makes the least amount of mistakes is probably gonna win.”Then the game of inches began.A ball off the bat of Barnwell skirted inches wide of the diving glove of Indiana first baseman Scotty Bradley for an RBI double to start the rally in the second inning, scoring freshman center fielder Dillon Dingler from second.Feltner worked out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the third without giving up a run on a strikeout and a double play.“To put that zero up in the third was huge,” Beals said. “I think that double play ball was maybe the turning point in the ball game.”Indiana center fielder Logan Kaletha made diving catches and outfield assists throughout the contest, but a fourth-inning single by Kobie Foppe fell inches in front of him to tie the game and drive home Barnwell from third.Kinker left no inches to spare on a snow-cone comebacker snag he flipped on to first to close out the win.“It was a slider away and he tried to pull it, and I was like, ‘Oh it’s coming right back at me,’” Kinker said. “It was smoked.” Freshman Griffan Smith picked up his second win as a Buckeye after 1.2 innings of shutout relief. Feltner finished off 5.1 innings of work, surrendering four runs (two earned) and striking out five. He walked five and gave up five hits. read more

Thriving in the PostPageview World

first_img Will Lee: People is fundamentally and foremost a storytelling platform. My persistent focus is making sure the quality of the storytelling is at the highest level. Folio: talked with Lee about his approach, what’s working and why. Lee: We’re in sort of a post-pageview world. There are a lot of different metrics we look at and it depends on what our goals are. Some stories we’re very invested in making sure it’s engaging, so how long do people spend on it and how many share it. Other stories, like on an awards night we want to see as many people come to the site and consume as much content as they possibly can. So it depends. But pageviews is one metric, visits is another, and engagement in 2016 and 2017 is going to be essential. Lee: Like everything else in the world, decisions need to be driven by logic, not magic. There’s a level at which we can be much more crisp in our decisionmaking. We’ve got a great editorial team with great instincts and they do really good work, but it’s a very different world when you can give somebody much deeper and more persistent focus, they’re doing things that really drive audience. And the more we learn about the stories we’re telling, the more we’re able to make them better and sharper and to really give the audience more of what they want. That’s the ultimate purpose and outcome we’re trying to see by using data to drive content. Folio: What are your primary goals now for People.com? Part of the approach here is what we like to call thin slicing, meaning that when we know that there’s a great story and the audience is responding to it, instead of doing just one story and hoping it goes well, we’ll do 15 or 20. But we create as many entry points for reader as possible, because everybody has a slightly different point of entry on a given topic. Folio: How does your approach differ? Lee: There was very little challenge in getting writers and editors to get the new data-driven approach to stories. Our journalists are fiercely competitive and they want to win—and they do. And our brand’s Editorial Director, Jess Cagle (my boss), has been instrumental in driving new initiatives. As far as changing metabolism goes—our spirit animal is the hare, because, as our board member David Bell likes to say—and this is the G-rated version—the tortoise only beats the hare in fairytales.  When we look very carefully at content that performs, it’s actually pretty granular. We have to look at what are the elements and do controlled experiments and literally change very small coefficients within the story to really understand: is it the headline, is it the subject, is it time of day? All of those factors go into how we program. Folio: How is that translating for People.com? Folio: How would you describe your editorial/content mission at People.com?center_img Folio: How has staff been motivated to change to a data-driven content culture? Lee: For me, it’s fundamentally about new storytelling for new audiences and driving new revenue streams. It’s important for us to figure out how to create great content for brands. We’re great storytellers, and brands should want to align with us because we can do that better than any of our competition. From a new audiences perspective, we need to be ubiquitous. Whether it’s with mobile, whether its Snapchat Discover, and the seven other apps and destinations that we’ve never heard of but are being created somewhere right now, we’ll be there. Everyone understands the urgency of what we’re doing, and that we have to be nimble, we have to be agile, and we have to be fast, fast, fast. That’s why our weekly digital win award for is now called the Most Valuable Bunny. What’s been especially helpful here at Time Inc. is that every executive has supported the culture change, and has encouraged us to push the teams to go beyond what they’ve been doing before. Again, we’re a competitive lot, and we understand how crucial it is for us to win. The Internet is full of click bait. What differentiates us is that we are the originator of these stories. We tell the best stories in the most creative way and we have the best journalists on the planet. Folio: What’s your approach to using data? That’s what drives our decisionmaking the next day or next week. When there’s a breaking story, and we’re watching our real-time data, we do adjust on the fly, so it’s obviously looking at things like headlines and the photos we use and all of that gets adjusted on the fly.  Lee: A lot of news organizations and publications can be very binary about how they program based on data. They’ll say like this did really well so let’s do more of it tomorrow. But I don’t think that’s really the case. There are a lot of extrinsic factors that can determine why a story does well. So it’s not so much we’ll do more of it just because it performed well. It’s far more nuanced than that. When we look at things that have been successful or performed well, we want to understand exactly why.   Will Lee has put his stamp on People.com. Since the TMZ and Hollywood Reporter veteran became digital editorial director for People.com and EW.com in October 2014, traffic has exploded. The People Digital Group hit a record 51 million unique visitors in January, and the People/Entertainment Weekly Network was the leader in the entertainment news category for the 10th consecutive month. We don’t just do things to drive audience. People is fundamentally and foremost a storytelling platform. The more we learn about the stories we’re telling the more we’re able to make them better and sharper and to really give the audience more of what they want. That’s the ultimate purpose and outcome we’re trying to see by using data to drive content. We have to be early adopters and execute well on different platforms. From a new storytelling standpoint it’s important for us to figure out what the atomic unit of content is for audiences today. It’s probably not simply an article with a headline and 300 words of text. It could be video, it could be a Snap. There are many, many ways to tell stories and relay news. Whether its Amazon Echo, or the front of your refrigerator or the bathroom mirror those are all places you’re going to consume content, we have to figure out how to tell our stories on all of those surfaces. I’d like to say I’m able to look into the future, but unfortunately the future is upon us.last_img read more

Eminem Publisher Sues Spotify Claiming Massive Copyright Infringement

first_imgEight Mile Style, a publishing company that holds administration rights to Eminem’s early catalog, filed a major copyright infringement lawsuit against Spotify late Thursday, claiming that the streaming giant has no license to host about 250 of Eminem’s songs, while also taking aim at the Music Modernization Act, the federal law enacted last year to improve royalty payments for songwriters. The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.The suit, filed in Nashville Wednesday, accuses Spotify, the $26 billion Stockholm-based streaming behemoth, of not living up to its obligations under the MMA, while also targeting the act itself.It claims that Spotify has streamed Eminem’s work billions of times without a license. “Spotify has not accounted to Eight Mile or paid Eight Mile for these streams but instead remitted random payments of some sort, which only purport to account for a fraction of those streams,” it reads. It also says that Spotify has placed “Lose Yourself” into a category called “Copyright Control,” a category for songs for which the owner is not known, calling it “absurd” that Spotify would be unable to locate the copyright owner of “one of the most well-known songs in history.” Spotify Triples Free-Trial Period on Premium Service ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

In fact, neither was true.”The MMA in part offered a form of amnesty for previous copyright infringement, and Eight Mile is contesting that element’s constitutionality, and says Spotify “knew what they were doing” in the “unconstitutional taking of Eight Mile’s and others vested property right was not for public use but instead for the private gain of private companies.”“In addition,” the suit continues, “as pleaded further below, even after the enactment of the Music Modernization Act of 2018, Spotify did not comply with its requirements, and does not therefore enjoy the limitations of liability under the MMA. Even if it had, as also discussed below, the MMA’s retroactive elimination of the right of a plaintiff to receive profits attributable to infringement, statutory damages, and attorneys’ fees, is an unconstitutional denial of due process (both procedural and substantive), and an unconstitutional taking of vested property rights.”“While we are confident that the Music Modernization Act is Constitutional, the law does place important obligations on digital services and they should be expected to live up to their responsibilities,’ said National Music Publishers Associated CEO David Israelite. Representing Eight Mile in the case is attorney Richard Busch, who represented Marvin Gaye’s heirs in the pivotal 2015 “Blurred Lines” case, which saw the family winning a $5.3 million decision against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams on the grounds that their song infringed on the copyright of Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up.” He also previously lodged a dispute against Universal Music Group questioning whether digital downloads should be categorized as “licenses” or “sales.”While the Music Modernization Act, signed into law by President Trump last October, was viewed as a huge victory by songwriters and the publishing community, Eminem’s lawsuit takes aim at what it describes as weaknesses in the act.“First, by its terms, the MMA liability limitation section only applies to compositions for which the copyright owner was not known, and to previously unmatched works (compositions not previously matched with sound recordings), and not to ‘matched’ works for which the DMP [Digital Music Provider] knew who the copyright owner was and just committed copyright infringement,” Eight Mile’s complaint reads in part, asserting that Spotify “did not engage in the required commercially reasonable efforts to match sound recordings with the Eight Mile Compositions as required by the MMA.” Relatedlast_img read more

Pinch interface can link displays of multiple screens w Video

first_img Samsung tablet concept shows a see-through, bendable future (w/ video) Citation: Pinch interface can link displays of multiple screens (w/ Video) (2012, November 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-11-interface-link-multiple-screens-video.html Explore further © 2012 Phys.org (Phys.org)—A research group from Tokyo gives new meaning to the word pinch—newer than a notion of gripping two pieces of skin, or throwing a little salt into a stew, or, of course, referring to a multitouch gesture for touchscreens, but not only that. They have worked up a Pinch interface that puts the user into another display environment where screens serve as visual-display tiles, working together. Even if your smart device screens are of different sizes, the Pinch interface allows them to join forces, resulting in one single display, like a slick, if out of joint, tile puzzle.center_img Pinch is an interface that connects the displays from multiple touch devices and it is under development by a research group at the Tokyo University of Technology. When the user places a thumb and index finger on two adjacent screens and pinches, the screens link up. The screens can be lined up freely, vertical or horizontal. The connected devices share each other’s position and screen size via Wi-Fi. Devices with different-sized screens, such as smartphones and tablets, can go together to form a display interface. According to Takashi Ohta, Associate Professor at Tokyo University of Technology, who appeared in a video demo, “This Pinch interface we’ve developed is used to create applications that make devices react when they’ve both been pinched, so they work together. In the case of a graphics application, when the devices recognize they’ve been pinched, they can show the whole picture as if it’s on one screen.”He said that Pinch can be the foundation of a musical experience, where you connect the different devices you have horizontally, with the result that “you could keep playing music for a long time.” Ohta sees Pinch as enabling “fun” communications, where people gather, place their devices next to one another, and communicate ideas and images in novel ways. Other avenues, too, could include mobile music, advertising, and photo-sharing experiences.The Pinch team said it was offering Pinch to developers, hoping they could “do something with it.”In 2010, Ohta co-wrote a paper that cast some light on the present research. In that paper, titled “Automatic configuration of display ordering for multi-display environments,” Ohta and Jun Tanaka said, “We designed and built a system that configures the information of how displays are arranged as a multi-display environment. The system automatically matches the physical location of displays and network addresses. It uses a web camera for capturing a real-time video to observe each display to flash its screens one by one. The timing and relative locations of the flashing screens are recognized using an image processing technique. Furthermore, the correspondence of the displays and the network addresses can be deduced from these data.” The team concluded, based on their results, that the “system works perfectly, with various configurations of display dispositions.” This document is subject to copyright.

WATCH Saborío scores Costa Rica edges Oman 43 in first leg of

first_imghttps://vine.co/v/OAJIrIL17IHStar striker Álvaro Saborío opened the scoring in his first game back with La Sele after missing the World Cup due to a broken bone in his right foot. His goal four minutes into the match helped Costa Rica hold off Oman 4-3 at the Sultan Qaboos Sport Complex in Sohar, Oman on Friday morning.Thanks to goals by Saborío, John Jairo Ruiz, Juan Bustos Golobio and David Ramírez, Costa Rica led 4-1 at one point. But the vaunted defense the Ticos had under their World Cup coach Jorge Luis Pinto, looked vulnerable and sloppy with interim coach Paolo Wanchope in charge. The Ticos, ranked 16th in the world, allowed more goals to 76th-ranked Oman than they did during the entire World Cup (two goals allowed in five matches).The majority of the line-up featured players who participated in Costa Rica’s historic run to the quarterfinals of the World Cup. However, La Sele sat its talisman Keylor Navas in goal — giving Esteban Alvarado his first start with Costa Rica in almost three years. The poor defense combined with Alvarado’s rust allowed Oman to get back in the match and almost tie it up late.The goalie received a yellow card just outside the box as time expired that gave Oman one last free kick to tie the match. The shot sailed high, and Costa Rica eked out the victory. La Sele remains undefeated in regulation play in the country’s last 10 matches (the Ticos lost in the quarterfinals to the Netherlands in penalty kicks).The attack benefited from the return of Saborío, who broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot two weeks before the start of the World Cup. He is Costa Rica’s third all-time leading scorer in international play. Alvarado returned from an even longer absence. He was suspended by the Costa Rican Football Federation at the end of 2011 after he abandoned the team before a friendly. The talented keeper only recently has earned his way back onto the national team roster.Navas will start La Sele’s next match when the team wraps up its two-game Asia tour against South Korea in Seoul on Tuesday.LA SELE GOALSÁlvaro Saborío (4 min.)https://vine.co/v/OAJIrIL17IHJohn Jairo Ruiz (45+2)https://vine.co/v/OAJlwrt2hlBJuan Bustos Golobio (47)https://vine.co/v/OA1AqQWFJTJDavid Ramírez (50) Related posts:Costa Rica great Paulo Wanchope insists Ticos will ‘keep surprising the world’ Costa Rica’s La Sele defeats South Korea 3-1 in friendly Football: Spain comes from behind to hand Costa Rica its third consecutive loss Injury may keep Costa Rica’s star goalkeeper Keylor Navas out of the Gold Cup Facebook Commentslast_img read more

For US and Iran nuke deal is a series of tough compromises

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Top Stories Top holiday drink recipes Sponsored Stories Men’s health affects baby’s health too SANCTIONSIran long sought the end of U.S. and international sanctions as soon as the deal came into force. But the United States wanted to postpone lifting the most significant restrictions until the later years of the deal.The compromise: a phased approach that will allow Iran to collect more than $100 billion in assets frozen overseas early on, while allowing the U.S. to maintain the ability to reimpose sanctions years into the agreement.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. But Iran’s supreme leader was forced to retreat on some key issues, too. Relief from crippling economic sanctions won’t come on Day 1, as he long clamored for, and his country will have to open up military sites to international inspectors at some point if the Islamic Republic is going to fulfill its commitments. Iran also will have to adhere to multiyear restrictions on enrichment and nuclear research and development that Ayatollah Khamenei and other leaders once opposed.A look at how Iran and world powers found middle ground on some of the agreement’s most contentious elements:ENRICHMENTEarly in Obama’s presidency, U.S. officials began backtracking from the long-standing U.S. position that Iran must cease all enrichment of uranium, which can be used for peaceful purposes or transformed into the stuff of nuclear warheads. But Washington wasn’t ready to accept more than several hundred centrifuges spinning under tight controls.The idea went nowhere with Khamenei or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s hardline president at the time. Even after the relative moderate Hassan Rouhani became president, Iranian officials still spoke about ramping up from some 20,000 centrifuges to some 190,000 of the machines. Comments   Share   WASHINGTON (AP) — The nuclear accord with Iran required a difficult series of compromises for world powers and Tehran.For President Barack Obama, it meant climbing down from demands that Tehran halt almost all of its enrichment of potential bomb-making material and shutter an underground facility possibly impervious to an air attack. It also meant dropping pledges to secure “anytime, anywhere” inspections and Iran’s complete answering of questions related to past weapons work. An Iranian woman shows the victory sign as people celebrate on a street following a landmark nuclear deal, in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, July 14, 2015. Overcoming decades of hostility, Iran, the United States, and five other world powers struck a historic accord Tuesday to check Tehran’s nuclear efforts short of building a bomb. The agreement could give Iran access to billions in frozen assets and oil revenue, stave off more U.S. military action in the Middle East and reshape the tumultuous region. (AP Photo/Ebrahim Noroozi) New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Both sides compromised with a decade-long cap of 6,104 centrifuges, and a little more than 5,000 that can enrich uranium. The Americans said that level would leave Iran far enough away from bomb-making capacity; the Iranians emphasized that their infrastructure remained in place.UNDERGROUND FACILITYWhen Iran’s secret nuclear installation at Fordo came to light in 2009, the U.S. and its European allies demanded its closure. Not only was it hidden from the world community, the site was so deep underground it was potentially bombproof. Iran said it would never scale back efforts there.The two sides found a solution earlier this year, making it a research institute while allowing the Iranians to continue developing their technological expertise. While Iran can continue running centrifuges at the facility, they have to use gases other than uranium for 15 years.INSPECTIONSIn a dispute that continued right up to the day of the deal, both Tehran and the West made inspections promises that proved tough to keep. Obama and his aides issued several pledges in recent months about securing the most stringent inspections regime in history, including the ability of U.N. nuclear agency monitors to visit sites wherever and whenever they choose. Tuesday’s accord doesn’t solve the matter. It does create a process to do that, and IAEA chief Yukiya Amano said he has a “roadmap” to wrap up his probe by mid-December. The country has failed to meet previous demands for it to come clean, but the West hopes the promise of added sanctions relief will be the difference this time.ARMS EMBARGOWhile the U.S. agreed to ease sanctions on Iran, it insisted that non-nuclear penalties would remain. Washington had a fight on its hands in the final days of the talks to maintain U.N. bans on Iran importing or exporting conventional weapons, and on Tehran’s purchases of ballistic missile technology.The American fear: Iran, flush with cash from the nuclear deal, ramping up weapons programs to the great chagrin of Israel and Sunni Arab states, and expanding its military assistance to forces in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and elsewhere that oppose the U.S. and its allies.Iran pressed hard for the sanctions to be removed. And it divided the U.S. from some of its partners because Russia and China might benefit from increased arms sales to Tehran.In the end, Iran accepted the arms embargo for five more years, or shorter if the IAEA certifies it is undertaking no illicit activity. For ballistic missile technology, the ban expires after no more than eight years. Khamenei’s response was one of defiance. In fiery speeches to his nation, he insisted he would never open up Iranian military sites to inspectors or allow Iranian nuclear scientists to be interviewed.The final deal falls in between. International Atomic Energy Agency experts can ask to see military installations of interest and Iran can make counterproposals. But if the experts accept no alternatives, an arbitration panel would decide what access is appropriate. And the U.S. and its European partners can get what they want as the majority of that panel’s membership.PAST WEAPONS WORKWhen world powers and Iran reached an interim nuclear pact in November 2013, the United States laid out its position concerning the IAEA’s long-stymied investigation of past Iranian atomic weapons work. The final agreement, it said in a statement, “would include resolution of questions concerning the possible military dimension of Iran’s nuclear program.”But instead of resolving the matter over the next 20 months, the nuclear agency struggled to get any answers from Tehran. The Iranians insisted that any evidence of wrongdoing was the fraudulent work of U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywalllast_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “I think one of the biggest things is just the timing with the receivers, the timing with my pre-snap ritual with the play-clock and the protections and everything, just getting that down smooth — because we don’t practice with a play clock — so just making sure that, and that all should come naturally so just with a different system it just takes a little bit of time.”Though he has been with the team for nearly a year now, most of Barkley’s work last season was running the scout team offense, meaning he was asked to replicate the opponent’s scheme and not run Arizona’s. His first real chance to run his actual team’s offense came in OTAs, and he noted they’ve received “more and more looks in camp.”He felt prepared for Friday, however, and understands that while he and his offense showed flashes, they simply did not do as well as necessary.Barkley’s rough outing likely did him no favors in his effort to claim the team’s third quarterback spot. He’s currently locked in a battle with undrafted rookie Jake Coker, though it’s entirely possible neither will make the Week 1 53-man roster.Arians has discussed the possibility of the team keeping just two quarterbacks, though a third would still be with the organization as part of the practice squad, for which both Barkley and Coker are eligible. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The former USC Trojan understands the situation he finds himself in, knowing he will have precious few opportunities to prove he can effectively run the team’s offense this preseason.“When there’s nothing you can do about that, about how many reps you get or whatever, you kind of have no choice but to make the most of what you do get,” he said. “So just control what you can control, and that’s what I’m focused on from here on out.”Barkley’s desire to impress the coaches did not necessarily manifest itself in Sunday morning’s practice, as Arians said he was worse than he was Friday night.“He had a baby yesterday so I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt,” he said, with a smile.The coach once again compared Barkley to a yo-yo, an analogy meant to describe how his play is up and down depending on the outing. The key for any QB is consistency, of course, and Barkley says the way to stop fluctuating and start stacking good days is to take everything one play at a time.“Just making sure that I’m focused on my reads, my sights, protections on that play, and that play alone,” he said.Barkley has plenty to focus on now, with his career on the field and life off it right now competing for his attention. Not surprisingly, his newborn is definitely on his mind, and there has not been much time for sleep or relaxation. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling But before you think the 25-year-old bolted quickly in order to avoid answering for his performance, know that instead, he was rushing on out of there to be with his wife, who was in labor and about to give birth to their second child.Jackson Barkley was born Saturday, and as the QB said, both baby and mom are healthy and doing well.The same was not said of his performance Friday.“Good and bad and ugly,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after the game. “He had some really nice throws; forgot to send a motion on three plays in the formations for his receivers, so we didn’t have a play. But other than that, he did make some nice — he can make every throw, it’s just some of those little things he’s got to clean up.”Arians seemed especially peeved over the formation troubles, which at this point should not be an issue for Barkley. Acquired in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick at the end of last preseason, he now has roughly a year with the organization and, in theory, should have a pretty good understanding of the team’s offense and situational football. His game stats did nothing to help his night look better, either.“I thought I had a lot of good moments and a few not good moments,” he said Sunday morning. “A lot to learn from. I think just being out here in this system for the first time in a game scenario, I came away with a lot.center_img “It was a late night — after the game we were up all night at the hospital and everything, and then a little sleep last night because of curfew, but not a whole lot,” the father of two young boys said. “Exciting weekend, though, nonetheless.” – / 15 Comments   Share   QB Matt Barkley throws a pass during training camp Aug. 10. (Photo by Adam Green) GLENDALE, Ariz. — No doubt Matt Barkley’s night Friday against the Oakland Raiders could have gone better.In his first game action of any kind in an Arizona Cardinals uniform, the former fourth-round pick completed just eight of 24 passes for 121 yards with one interception in Arizona’s 31-10 loss.Given that he’s battling for a roster spot as the team’s third quarterback, he was understandably a topic after the game, though he did not stick around the locker room long to talk to the media.
