Numbers to remember from and wild and whacky weekend of sports action…
— 16: The number of Skowhegan HS field hockey state titles after Saturday’s win.
— 15: Consecutive appearances for Skowhegan in the state game. (13 wins)
— 0: The number of spy bugs found in the visitors locker room by the NFL.
— 23: The number of penalties called against the Miami Hurricanes before that last second 8-lateral game winning play. Should there have been a 24th?
— 7: The number of games the Boston Bruins have won or tied since dropping their first three games of the season, looking like the dregs of hockey in doing so.
— 43: The unofficial count of the times I used ESPN’s Chris Carter’s line “Come On, Man” while watching the UMaine vs Villanova football game.
— 51: The difference in points between UMaine men’s basketball exhibition loss to USM last year (78-73) and Saturday’s win over USM (104-58).
— 13: Drew Brees and Eli Manning combined TD passes on Sunday. That’s a new NFL record.
— 4: The number of Sprint Cup races left which means Joey Logano and Matt Kenseth have four more chances to play their game called ‘who can wreck the other first’.
— 541: The number of wins San Antonio’s big three (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili) have together after beating the C’s Sunday afternoon. That passes the Celtics big three (Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish) and their 540 wins.
— 100 UMaine field hockey coach Josette Babineau hit that number for career wins as a coach as her team ties a school record for wins with 17.
— 5: The number of goals scored by Husson field hockey sophomore Taylor Shaw in the NAC semi-final playoff win over Colby-Sawyer. It ties the school record.
— 3: The number of Camping World NASCAR truck races left on the schedule. Can Fort Kent’s Austin Theriault get healthy enough to get back and race in one of them?
— 132: The number of days til March 13, 2016 when we get Daylight Savings Time back…But who’s counting!
