SORT BY Relevancy
The latest Seton Hall Sports Poll, which polled 771 Americans (by landline and cellphone across the nation), was unveilved on January 28, 2016. With the Super Bowl coming right as the presidential primary season “kicks off,” Americans said they were following the presidential contests by more than a 2-to-1 margin over football, with 60% choosing the political contests, and 24% the Super Bowl. 53% say the political races will be the most competitive, compared to 37% naming the Super Bowl.
The reasons for watching the Super Bowl are of course, varied. 40% said it was best explained because they were football fans, with 19% saying they were a fan of one of the participating teams, 18% saying it was a “big event,” and 10% interested in the commercials. Only 2% said it was primarily because they had a bet on the game, although in another question, 13% said they participated in wagering on the game.
Peyton Manning, whose name emerged recently as having been sent human growth hormones (the report was on Al Jazeera and was recanted by the source), was the subject of a question on whether that report changed opinions about him. (During the polling period, the NFL announced it would investigate the charges). A significant 11% said they thought “less favorably” of him, and 76% said it had no effect.
Pete Rose, who will be inducted in the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame this year, was the subject of two questions, the first asking whether that was appropriate - to which 47% said yes, 33% no. The second asked if he should be eligible to be elected to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, to which 56% said yes, 28% no.
The Seton Hall Sports Poll has been conducted regularly since 2006.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Coach Karen Hall will interview CT Women's Basketball Hall of Fame Inductee Charlene M. Taylor.
Charlene Taylor played basketball at Beaver Falls (PA) High School, where she played point guard and averaged 15 points per game. In her senior year (1985), Taylor helped her team to a 25-1 record, and both the conference and state championship titles. Taylor was named the conference MVP, was a member of the “Terrific Twenty” (top twenty girl basketball players in Pennsylvania), received the high school’s “Carolyn Clark Girls’ Sports Award” and earned a scholarship to the University of New Haven.
Taylor had an astounding athletic career at the University of New Haven from 1985-1989. During that time, New Haven won four NECC titles, two Division II New England Regional Championships, and a National Championship enroute to a 102-22 record.
During her career, Taylor scored 1,853 points with an average of 17 points per game, and tallied 603 assists, 419 steals, and 458 rebounds. She was named UNH Female Athlete of the Year twice, Kodak All-District twice, and in 1987, she was named to the Division II All-Tournament Team. Taylor was a three-time All-NECC First Team selection, and a 1989 NCAA New England All Region Squad selection. In 1989, she was a Kodak All-American, ECAC Player of the Year, and NECC Player of the Year. In 1996, Taylor was inducted into the UNH Hall of Fame.
Taylor’s name appears at or near the top of several categories in the Charger’s record book: #1 career assists (603), #1 career steals (419), #2 career points (1,853), #2 most steals in a sea-son (134), #3 most points in a season (557), #9 most 3-pointers in a season (35), and #2 most assists in a season (175).
Tonight I will discuss the Hall of Fame voting that took place last week that put Mets catcher Mike Piazza and Mariners slugger Ken Griffey Jr. into the hallowed halls of Cooperstown. Reflections on both careers, and their impacts on both teams, plus what did the voting mean for the steroid guys? John Pielli is the scheduled guest on the program tonight.
Happy New Year, Metsian Folk! The Rising Apple Report returns for its 1st episode of 2016! Brooklyn Trolley Blogger Mike Lecolant hosts, with site editor Danny Abriano and writer Rich Sparago joining them for all the piping hot Mets talk! Joining them as well will be long-time friend of Rising Apple and blogger Metstradamus, Mr. John Coppinger.
Well, after 4 years of waiting, it finally happened: Mike Piazza, the greatest hitting catcher of all time, has been elected to the baseball Hall of Fame! AND as expected, he will don a Mets cap on his plaque. We'll discuss his career, our favorite memories, and what this means for the era of the 90's and 00's overall in future HOF voting.
Most fans have wished for a more active offseason following a pennant-winning year, but that has not occurred. Whether it's the debt the Wilpons are still living under, Sandy Alderson's reluctance to dole out long-term 2nd generation contracts, or both, we'll discuss the offseason so far, as well as options the Mets should still be considering, whether realistic they will pursue them or not.
So, join us at 6:30pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
