Cleveland: Adjusting to a life of watching games from home

first_imgThis is written on Sunday morning. I feel fine; my TV remote control batteries are dead.Valiantly, they lasted until the ends of Mississippi State’s arduous victory over Arkansas and Ole Miss’ traumatic defeat to Auburn.At our house, we flipped the channels back and forth so often it sometimes became confusing. We were watching two compelling dramas at once. No matter how hard we tried, we missed big plays. In most cases we caught the replays. (Amazing — isn’t it? — how often the two games, simultaneously, were on TV commercials.)This stunning Mississippi football season has brought this writer much joy and entertainment and at least one realization. That is, sometimes, it is better to be at home than in a stadium.You see, for 44 years I covered Mississippi college football on an almost daily basis. For 44 years, I was in a press box every Saturday and sometimes on Thursday night. For 44 years — except for the old Jackson doubleheaders — I saw one game and one game only.This year, when given the choice of seeing one nationally significant Mississippi game or another, I have instead chosen to see both, usually in the comfort of home. As much as I would love to write about this season, in person, on a daily basis, I must tell you that sitting in my recliner, flipping the channels, is not all bad.Part of me still wants to be in a press box with my comrades, drinking coffee, trying to discern a storyline and then, in a caffeine-fueled adrenaline rush, knocking out 700 words that somehow make sense in 15 minutes or fewer.But part of me is quite content with the recliner and the remote control and writing my comments 140-or-fewer characters at a time on Twitter — or not.And still I find myself trying to figure out what my storyline would be.At Starkville, Saturday night, there were so many choices: Quarterback Dak Prescott, playing on one good leg, and willing State past Arkansas. Running back Josh Robinson fighting for all 174 of his all-purpose yards in still another heroic performance. State’s underrated defense bending but not breaking and preserving an 11th consecutive win for the Dogs. Or, the luckless Razorbacks coming so close once again.At Oxford, oh my heavens: The play, the second most excruciating play in Ole Miss football history, with LaQuon Treadwell, fumbling inches from the goal line, while his leg is simultaneously mangled. What a great player! But, oh, what a devastating injury and defeat. You could write 700 words on the one play, as has been written hundreds upon hundreds of times in the last 55 years about Billy Cannon’s famous punt return against the Rebels. But you also could have written, poignantly, about Bo Wallace’s remarkable effort or Auburn’s penchant for winning these kinds of games over and over and over.My late comrade, Orley Hood, always said that the most compelling stories are usually in the losers’ locker rooms. That was definitely the case at Vaught-Hemingway Saturday night.So the State and Ole Miss seasons have suddenly headed in different directions, Ole Miss with back-to-back excruciating SEC losses; State with an 11-game winning streak and its No. 1 ranking.This week? The remote control, with new batteries, will get a break. State plays Tennessee-Martin; Ole Miss plays Presbyterian. Both deserve these bought victories after the stretches they have played through.State will use it as a warm-up for the Nov. 15 showdown with Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Dak will need both legs for that one. (Were I Dan Mullen, I might just rest him this week.) Ole Miss has Presbyterian and then an open date before a dangerous road trip to Arkansas. I’ve said all season long, this Arkansas team is going to win a big game at some point. The Razorbacks are too good not to do that.We are steadily building toward the Egg Bowl at Oxford on Nov. 29. Anybody who says Ole Miss has nothing left to play for doesn’t comprehend the significance of that game.Rick Cleveland ([email protected]) is executive director of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum.last_img read more

Eat fresher? Subway also dropping artificial ingredients

(AP Photo/Ted S. Warren) NEW YORK | Subway wants to give new meaning to its “eat fresh” slogan by joining the list of food companies to say it’s dropping artificial ingredients.The sandwich chain known for its marketing itself as a healthier alternative to hamburger chains told The Associated Press it will remove artificial flavors, colors and preservatives from its menu in North America by 2017. Whether that can help Subway keep up with changing attitudes about what qualifies as healthy remains to be seen.Elizabeth Stewart, Subway’s director of corporate social responsibility, said in an interview that ingredient improvement has been an ongoing process over the years. More recently, she said the chain has been working on removing caramel color from cold cuts like roast beef and ham. For its turkey, Subway says it plans to replace a preservative called proprionic acid with vinegar by the end of this year.

(AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)center_img Among its toppings, Stewart said Subway is switching to banana peppers colored with turmeric instead of the artificial dye Yellow No. 5. Without providing details, she said the chain is also working on its sauces and cookies.The purging of artificial ingredients is quickly becoming the norm among major food companies, which are facing pressure from smaller players that tout their offerings as more wholesome. That has prompted so-called “Big Food” makers including Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Kraft and Nestle to announce in recent months they’re expelling artificial ingredients from one or more products.Subway’s announcement comes at a challenging time for the chain, which grew to be the world’s largest restaurant brand by number of locations with the help of weight loss pitchman Jared Fogle.The company is privately held and doesn’t disclose sales figures. But last year, sales for Subway stores in the U.S. averaged $475,000 each, a 3 percent decline from the previous year, according to industry tracker Technomic.Subway is facing evolving definitions for what qualifies as healthy, said Darren Tristano, an analyst for Technomic. While older generations looked at nutritional stats like fat and calories, he said younger generations are more concerned about qualities like “local,” ”organic” and “natural.”“Change has come so fast and rapidly, consumers are just expecting more and more,” Tristano said.And although Subway markets itself as a fresher option, he noted that people don’t necessarily see it as the healthiest or best product around.Last year, Subway’s image took a hit when food activist Vani Hari, known as the Food Babe, launched a petition calling on it to remove azodicarbonamide from its bread, noting the ingredient was used in yoga mats. Subway has said that it was in the process of removing the ingredient, which is widely used as a dough condition and whitening agent, before the issue became a controversy.Tony Pace, Subway’s chief marketing officer, noted the chain is already seen as a place for low-fat options, but that it needs to keep up with changing customer attitudes.“As their expectations go up, we have to meet those expectations,” he said.Pace said the use of simple ingredients is becoming a “necessary condition” to satisfy customers, but that it won’t be enough on its own to drive up sales.Follow Candice Choi at read more

WWII vet doesn’t need movie; he lived it

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’“But I’m thinking about going to see this one,” the 83-year-old Woodland Hills resident said Wednesday. “I’ve read excerpts from the book. This one is different.” The movie he’s talking about is “Flags of Our Fathers,” a best-selling book that has been made into a movie directed by Oscar-winner Clint Eastwood. It depicts the lives of the six Marines who raised the U.S. flag on Iwo Jima, a moment captured by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal and recorded forever in history. From what he’s read, the movie is not so much about death and war as it is about life and the curse of forced fame, McCaffrey says. Not exactly a war movie. More a human tragedy. He was there that day in 1945 – a 21-year-old 2nd lieutenant sitting in a foxhole, a quarter-mile from where Easy Company erected the flag on Mount Suribachi. “You could feel everyone’s spirits rise, and a surge of pride come out of every foxhole,” says McCaffrey, who coached football and track at Van Nuys, Canoga Park and Taft High schools before he retired in 1980. “Everyone cheered, and the battleships at sea blew their horns. We were all filled with pride, but none of us thought it would be such a monumental moment in history.” During his 30-year career as an educator, he never talked about war with the boys he coached, McCaffrey said. He just couldn’t. “What was to talk about?” McCaffrey asked. “How you survived and your friends didn’t? How you got lucky, and they didn’t? A lot of us have carried that guilt around.” The history books say that more than 6,800 Americans died in the 36-day battle for that eight-square-mile island in February and March 1945. In less than a week on Iwo Jima, McCaffrey went from a rookie replacement officer to commander of Dog Company, 2nd Battalion, 26th Marines. It wasn’t that he was so good. It was that he was still alive. “There were nine or 10 officers in the company,” he says. “I was the last one who hadn’t been killed or wounded. My command lasted exactly one day.” With his gunnery sergeant standing next to him, company commander McCaffrey looked through a pair of binoculars on a dark night when a shell exploded in the sky above, silhouetting his body to a sniper. “The bullet went through my hand, shattered the binoculars, and it went into my left eye,” McCaffrey says. At dawn, he was airlifted to a hospital on Guam before being sent home to a naval hospital in Long Beach. World War II was over for McCaffrey, but he enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserves and was later sent to Korea for a year. Two wars in a span of eight years. McCaffrey had seen enough of the real thing. He didn’t need to see the movie. Dennis McCarthy’s column appears Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

The former coach has never seen a war movie. When you’ve seen the real thing, why would you want to? He doesn’t need to sit in a darkened movie theater to be reminded of the buddies he lost in World War II and Korea, Jack McCaffrey says. Guys who never got to raise a family, have a career, retire and go fishing. Guys who never got the chance to grow old. No, when you’ve seen the real thing, you don’t need to see a war movie. last_img read more
