Fans flock to see homeruns, not the game [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Fans flock to see homeruns, not the game by Steve Kelley Knight-Ridder Newspapers CHICAGO - Wrigley Field was sold out. There was an expectant buzz in the stands before the game, like the buzz before a championship fight. This night had a playoff feel to it, cold and windy. But this was just a late September game between two teams that were a combined 38 games under .500. They didn't come for the baseball game. They came for dingers. It wasn't the Cubs against the Cardinals. It was Sammy Sosa against Mark McGwire. They came to Wrigley last night for the history. This was Home Run Derby, Part II. Sosa has 61. And, in this game, a 7-2 victory for St. Louis, McGwire hit 59. "If I wasn't having the kind of year I'm having, the situation would be pretty ugly," Sosa said. Before the game, McGwire and Sosa talked on the outfield grass. On Saturday, Sosa became the first man in baseball history to have consecutive 60 home-run seasons. Later this week, McGwire will become the second....
Trinidad rallies to win majority decision [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 24 September 1999
Trinidad rallies to win majority decision by Carlos Arias Knight-Ridder Newspapers LAS VEGAS - Oscar De La Hoya had Felix Trinidad bloodied, outclassed and beaten after eight rounds, so he listened to his corner and stayed away from the dangerous Puerto Rican. De La Hoya's corner told him there was no need to engage in a toe-to-toe slugfest after he clearly had outboxed Trinidad and built a huge lead on points. De La Hoya has ignored his corner in the past, but in the weeks leading up to a bout billed as "The Fight of the Millennium" by promoter Bob Arum, De La Hoya said he had learned his lesson. He wouldn't ignore his corner again. Plus, the judges were sure to side with De La Hoya. He's the Golden Boy. Las Vegas is his back yard. It turned out to be a major miscalculation. Trinidad knew the fight was close and rallied in the final four rounds to pull out a majority decision Saturday night in front of a capacity crowd of 12,000 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. Trinidad (...

In the last year, the quarterback has been booed by the student section of his own school at a basketball game and castigated loudly around the state. He's also had his head coach defend him at every turn. Add this chapter in bold print: Thompson will be remembered in one of the big plays in Penn State history. "They will be talking about that for decades!" Penn State assistant coach Jay Paterno said outside the Nittany Lions' locker room when he spotted Linda Fields of Philadelphia, waiting lo see her son, Chafie.

What's high-tech at Behrend this fall [Newspaper Article] — Behrend Beacon (1998-2010) — 1 October 1999
What's high-tech at Behrend this fall by Rob Wynne staff writer Many technological improvements have hit the Penn Stale Behrend campus this fall. Much has been added in the way of new hardware, such as new computers, new monitors, and new software packages.
