Wade Philips said Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis was talking and moving his hands, but he was taken away in a neck brace.

Yeah I just saw the video from inside the facility as it collapsed on the local news, crazy.

Wade had some pretty nimble moves jumping out of the wreckage.

From Todd Archer:

Quote:
At 3:27 p.m. the tension structure at the Cowboys' practice facility collapsed under high winds and rain. The police estimate 70 people were inside in the indoor center at the time and 12 people went to the hospital.

I wasn't one of them. Thank goodness for that. Matter of fact, thank DeAngelo Smith and Brandon Williams and Nick Eatman.

As we attempted to get out the door when the structure buckled, we got jammed until the door gave way. I think the door structure fell on me, knocking me to the ground. It then rested on my leg. Unable to move, I yelled for help, unaware what was going on around me.

I could see feet go by and I hoped somebody would attempt to lift it up so I could squeeze through. At first Eatman, one of the staff writer's for the team's Web site, attempted to lift some piece of the door off me. He said Williams pushed him to the side and he and Smith were able to get whatever was on me off.

I rolled on to my back and crawled out as the rain - and I think hail - pounded us all. As I got up, I saw the structure I've been in hundreds of times down and started to make my way to the facility.

It all lasted 20-25 seconds but it seemed longer.

No players were seriously injured in the collapse, which happened about 3:30 p.m., but three other Cowboys personnel remain hospitalized: assistant athletic trainer Greg Gaither, who suffered a broken leg, college scouting coordinator Chris Hall, whose arm was injured, and scouting assistant Rich Behm, who was in critical condition with unspecified injuries.
Buehler:

Quote:
David Buehler, the kicker/special teams player the Cowboys drafted in the fifth round, was standing on the sideline when the team's indoor facility began to collapse. He bolted out a side door and was sprinting across a practice field when a pole crashed down on him.

Buehler, dazed by a blow to his head, wriggled out from under the pole and crawled approximately 15 yards through pools of water before turning around and looking at the wreckage.

"My initial thought was, how many people are dead in this?" Buehler said tonight. "I thought I was the lucky one."

Buehler thinks he actually suffered the worst injuries among the players, although he wasn't severely hurt. He needed three stitches to close a gash on his right knee. He also has a concussion, sore neck, skin ripped off his ear and a cut on his forehead. Yet he feels very fortunate, a feeling he said was shared by his teammates.

"Guys were in shock," Buehler said, "and very thankful."

You mentioned it so I left it off. I just thought Buelher's quotes were interesting.

Crazy day out at TBIA too, though not as bad as the roof collapse. The game is still being delayed in the bottom of the eighth inning, though I'm not sure why they don't just go ahead and rule the game over since it's past the required innings.

Good, but short, outing by McCarthy too.

How about that diving grab and throw from the ground that Elvis made last night in the bottom of the 9th? That's pretty much as good as it gets at the shortstop position. You can also tell that he's focusing intently on the routine plays to try and cut down the errors.

I completely think they made the right move by making Young play third. Elvis has made some remarkable plays in his first month here. He also has a better bat that I though, his .284 is fairly respectable

Elvis is electric. A smash of a homer tonight and he's making every play. Cannon of an arm.

Holland's looked great in his 2 innings also.

edit: heh, Elvis signing autographs after the game from the dugout, on the road. I think that's a good sign.

FX2 needs some days off. His saves are getting progressively more stressful.

OT - http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4148907
Major League Baseball announced Thursday that Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez has been suspended for 50 games for violating its drug policy.


Ramirez
Ramirez's test result was first reported by The Los Angeles Times.

Scott Boras, Ramirez's agent, told ESPN's Peter Gammons that his client did not test positive for steroids, but for a drug that was prescribed by a doctor for a medical condition.

Triple-A outfielder Xavier Paul has been told by the Dodgers that he will be promoted later today, according to The Times. Ramirez would be eligible to return to the Dodgers' lineup for their July 3 game against San Diego.

From an online chat with Jon Daniels:
Quote:
[Comment From Joey] With all of the talk about Mr. Hicks and his financial problems, how does that effect your operations budget? And if so, is there a chance we can see more "deals" to go to the park. Afterall, more people in the stands for a little less money is still more money than if the seats were empty.

Jon Daniels: First of all, a lot of that talk is tabloid driven. Don't believe everything you read (especially if it's from the British tabloids or Randy Galloway). As for how it's affected Baseball Operations - it hasn't. We've talked about extending one of our core players, had a deal witha free agent pitcher, and go into the amateur draft and international signing period expecting to add premium talent to the org.
Comparing one of England's tabloids with Galloway. Heh. Of course the comparison is apt.
