Brad Delp, R.I.P.

braddelp.jpg ATKINSON, New Hampshire: Brad Delp, the lead singer for the band Boston, was found dead Friday in his home in southern New Hampshire. He was 55.

Atkinson police responded to a call for help at 1:20 p.m. (1820 GMT) and found Delp dead. Lt. William Baldwin said in a statement the death was “untimely” and that there was no indication of foul play.

Investigators said Delp apparently was alone at the time.

Boston had a number of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Foreplay/Long Time.”

When not working with Boston, Delp played in a Beatles cover band called Beatlejuice.

Boston was going to rehearse throughout May, then set out on a big tour in June. Delp was also planning to get married to longtime girlfriend Pamela Sullivan this summer.

Got a Big Fish in Bagdhad

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of the militant group Islamic State of Iraq, was arrested Friday in western Baghdad, the Iraqi Interior Ministry said.A high-ranking Interior Ministry official said al-Baghdadi was arrested a few hours after the Iraqi army initiated an operation in a village in the Abu Ghraib district.

A number of al-Baghdadi’s aides were also arrested, the official said. Neither the Iraqi police nor multinational forces were involved in the operation.

One of the arrested insurgents revealed al-Baghdadi’s identity, The Associated Press reported.

“One of the terrorists who was arrested with him confessed that the one in our hands is al-Baghdadi,” said Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, spokesman of the Baghdad security operation, according to AP.

Bulldogs Hold Off Wildcats In Overtime, 84-82, To Move Into SEC Semis

gordon.jpg03/09/2007 ATLANTA, Ga. – In a dramatic finish, the Mississippi State Bulldogs (18-12) defeated the Kentucky Wildcats (21-10) by a score of 84-82 in overtime in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament Friday afternoon.

State will face the winner of the Vanderbilt-Arkansas contest on Saturday at 12 p.m. CT. First-team all-SEC selection Jamont Gordon proved invaluable to the Bulldogs in Friday’s affair, scoring 26 points and 11 rebounds to notch his fourth double-double of the season along with hitting a clutch three-pointer [AT THE BUZZER!] to send the game to overtime. Kentucky starting center Randolph Morris dominated the Wildcat offense, scoring a game-high 29 points on 8-of-15 shooting along with a career-high 15 rebounds.

Leading at halftime 34-31, the Wildcats scored a quick two points to begin the second stanza before watching MSU storm out to a 24-6 run. At 57-43, State would hold the largest lead held by either team, before UK slowly chipped away to finally regain the advantage 70-68 at the 3:38 mark.

A series of ties and lead changes would follow in the final minutes of regulation, before UK’s Sheray Thomas would tip in a shot with 28 seconds remaining to put Kentucky on top by two. Freshman Barry Stewart missed an attempt from behind the arc and then UK’s Meeks drew a foul with 5.1 seconds remaining. After hitting his first and pulling UK’s lead to three at 76-73, a second would ice the game for the ‘Cats. However, a UK lane violation handed possession to State. Gordon then ran the length of the court and released a desperation three with 0.9 seconds on the game clock, watching it swish the net just after the buzzer sounded to send the game to overtime. Kentucky gained an early advantage in overtime, but with 3:18 left, Hansbrough scored a vital three-pointer to put MSU ahead 81-80. Stewart scored the final three points for MSU, including one free throw to put the MSU advantage at 84-82 with only three seconds left. Kentucky’s ensuing inbounds pass was deflected by Stewart into Gordon’s hands, finalizing the State victory. The win marked coach Rick Stansbury’s Bulldogs first over Kentucky in over six years.MSU Athletics

This was real sweet! I’m going to be smiling for a few hours.
