It’s not easy to do.”nnSewald capped a collective effort that began with the 19th big league start from Logan Gilbert, who had what Servais said was “the best stuff we’ve ever seen in any game.” He threw five scoreless innings. Justus Sheffield returned from the IL for the sixth. Casey Sadler followed with a 1-2-3 seventh. And though Drew Steckenrider worked into some eighth-inning trouble, he got the big assist from Sewald.nn“That’s why we do what we want to do,” Sewald said. “You want to be in high-leverage situations.

College football picks, schedule: Predictions against the spread, odds for top 25 games Thursday in Week 1

The first full week of the 2021 college football season is officially underway, and while games were played last weekend in Week 0 and there was a game Wednesday, the first showdown involving a team in the AP Top 25 takes place Thursday. No. 4 Ohio State travels to face Minnesota in the second Big Ten conference game of the season as the Buckeyes eye a return to the College Football Playoff and chance at a national championship. That trek will not come without some obstacles, including breaking in a new starter at football’s most important position.

With Justin Fields no longer under center, Ohio State will be relying on its bevy of talented pass catchers to supplement first-year starter C.J. Stroud. Minnesota under coach P.J. Fleck is looking to find its footing after a disappointing 2020 campaign that saw the team play just seven games, finishing 3-4 without a

The 5 best ways to enjoy a Patriots game at home

There are varying opinions on the best way to enjoy football on Sundays. Some people enjoy the experience of attending games in person, to soak up the game day atmosphere inside the stadium. Others don’t enjoy long lines, uncomfortable seats, and overpriced beers. To each their own, as they say.

Everyone is different, and the fact of the matter is, experiencing a game in person isn’t something that is available to all football fans. That means it is important to maximize your game-day experience when you stay at home. Wondering how you can do so? Here are five ways to best enjoy a New England Patriots game at home.

“The Snack Fleet”

One of the not-so great things about going to a stadium are the limited food options. Hot dogs, nachos, and beer. That’s it. Now, of course those aren’t bad choices, but I like a little bit of variety

Arcade1Up Infinity Game Table Review: Digital Board Game Fun

Love board games? You probably have a whole stack of ’em filling up a bookshelf or cabinet. If you’re running out of valuable storage space, then the Infinity Game Table is the solution. It’s a giant touchscreen tablet with legs that up to six people can sit around, and it packs nearly 40 digital versions of board games, including Monopoly, Scrabble, and Battleship. 

It has become a fast favorite in our household, particularly with my 9-year-old daughter, but there’s something here for the whole family. Beyond the board game selection, there are jigsaws, Sudoku puzzles, word searches, and even a coloring app. Visual prompts make it easier to follow games along, and sound effects plus haptic feedback add immersion. You even get a mix of single and multiplayer options. 

Unfortunately, consolidation comes with a steep price. The 24-inch version of the Infinity Game Table costs $650, and the 32-inch model

Gaming culture is saturating the mainstream now more than ever — yes, even more than when “Pac-Man Fever” hit the Billboard charts in 1982. Last year, Apple TV’s critically acclaimed Mythic Quest invited viewers into the world of game development. Celebrities like Chris Gethard, Robby Hoffman and Martin Urbano turned to the gaming platform Twitch as an alternative to live comedy shows during quarantine, helping to bring more attention to the live-streaming platform. And the pandemic helped many of us — who may have fallen off from gaming sometime between Frogger and Fortnite — rediscover that love.

In the last year, sales surged for the Nintendo Switch, as homebound gamers explored the virtual world
