Star Picks: Batteries energized after 5 OTs on Friday

The Stang Fan and I will go head-to-head this season…

Melendez: 13-5 last week; total 90-38-1
Stang Fan: 16-2 last week; total 99-29-1

What a weekend. There definitely was no shortage of football this weekend, what with spending almost five hours Friday night at Maranatha, then spending my Saturday morning writing a story for Sunday’s paper and, of course, watching football on Sunday. Stang Fan had a pretty great week. He lost only two games when he picked Burbank over Arcadia and Crescenta Valley over Pasadena. A slate full of interesting games this week. Temple City likely will finish second in the Rio Hondo League behind Monrovia. The third-place spot will be a battle between South Pasadena and La Canada. St. Francis’ playoff hopes hang in the balance when the Golden Knights host St. Paul. Arcadia and Muir likely to win this week, but I can’t be so sure about Pasadena against Burbank.

Friday’s games
Temple City vs. Monrovia at Maranatha, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Monrovia)
Burbank at Pasadena, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Burbank)
St. Paul at St. Francis, 7:30 p.m. — Melendez (St. Paul)
Hoover at Arcadia, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Arcadia)
Muir at Glendale, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Muir)
Pasadena Poly vs. Flintridge Prep at South Pasadena, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Poly)
Blair vs. La Canada at Muir, 7p.m. — Melendez (La Canada)
South Pasadena at San Marino, 7 p.m. — Melendez (South Pasadena)
Arroyo at Gabrielino, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Arroyo)
Montebello vs. Alhambra at Moor Field, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Alhambra)
Keppel at Schurr, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Schurr)
Bosco Tech at Cantwell-Sacred Heart, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Cantwell)
Rosemead at Mountain View, 7 p.m. — Melendez (Rosemead)

    Isn’t the TC v Monrovia at Maranatha?

  • Goldenarm

    If anyone could provide “best parking” instructions for a fan arrving early at TC/M-town at Maranatha High School, it would be appreciated.

  • Tom S

    Goldenarm:
    Yes, get there early. Parking at Maranatha will be limited. The main parking area is in the structure under the football field. Some parking available in the upper lot,north of the field. No parking on the south lawn so if it’s full your looking at the streets which is limited or in old town.
    I’ll be running the concession, stop by and say hi.

    fan of the game -

    great post. One question…could you type it on in English this time?

  • Goldenarm

    Tom,

    what street offers best access to the parking under the field?

  • Tom S

    Goldenarm:
    Only access is on S. St. John Ave
    Mapquest 169 S. St John Ave Pasadena, CA 91105

    Goldenarm,

    This should help, a letter to your AD:

    October 26, 2010

    Dear Athletic Director:

    Maranatha High School is excited about hosting your school in athletic events on our campus in Pasadena. We are located in a lovely neighborhood on the west side of Pasadena, close to Old Town Pasadena and the Norton Simon Museum.

    To be considerate of our neighbors and to comply with the requirements of our Conditional Use Permit, we ask your school to follow the directions to our school, Traffic Flow Plan and parking guidelines listed below. We appreciate your schools support and your parents support in observing these instructions.

    Due to the nature of our synthetic turf, there can be no food (especially sunflower seeds) or drinks on the field except water and Gatorade. No special footwear is needed for the turf. You can wear regular cleats, turf shoes, or tennis shoes. We do not allow metal cleats.

    Please distribute additional copies of this information to the appropriate individuals at your school, such as coaches, office personnel, bus drivers and parents.

    Go west on the 210 fwy into Pasadena to the 134 fwy: Take the Orange Grove Blvd. exit and turn left. Turn left on Green Street and right on S. St. John Avenue (one way street, south). Buses can drop off on S. St. John Avenue on the east side of the football field and park in the lot at the corner of St. John and Green St. Parents and fans may park in the parking garage under the football field.

    When leaving our campus, exercise caution as you drive south on S. St. John Avenue and as you merge with the traffic exiting the Del Mar exit of the freeway onto S. St. John Avenue. All traffic must turn left (east) on Del Mar when leaving campus. No exceptions. Absolutely no parking on the side/surface streets surrounding our campus. Overflow parking is available in Old Town Pasadena.

  • HOT ROD

    Burbank vs Pasadena on Friday should be a good one. The Dogs beat Burbank on last play of the game last season and are looking to continue the streak. Its the last PHS home game of the year so come enjoy some hard hitting football at Victory Park.

  • Goldenarm

    Wow…you guys are alright.

    Short of a limo ride to the 50 yd line and a halftime massage from the Norweigian Womens Ski Team – I could not have done better.

    Thanks!

    Don’t Waste The Employer’s Time – A CV that is too long, with information that is irrelevant to the employer, will likely end up in the “circular file”. Employers are busy, and their time is limited. A CV that wastes their time with lengthy and irrelevant information shows disrespect for someone that you are trying to convince to hire you.

    I was doing silk n sensepil applications for more than a year at this point on my facial hair. Before then I had a really heavy dark beard. I am proud of the final results. The actual hairs are really thin and I have not gone back for re-application for approximately a few months. Ill mention that it did hurt a lttle bit on my upper lip and there had been times when I had a little inflammation on my neck. I suggest Ipl to people having thicker hairs or have large areas of hair they need to get rid of. For the males who might like to do their tough facial beard be prepard for patches within the following several weeks and a lot of people saying dude what is wrong with your beard.
