Football Goal Post Measurements

When the kicker on your favorite NFL team misses a game-winning field goal, it’s easy to yell at the TV that such a field goal should be impossible to miss. From some angles, the goal posts look extremely wide — but when you’re on the field with the game in the balance

, the opening between the two posts can appear tiny.
A goal post’s crossbar must sit 10 feet above the ground, according to NFL Rule Book. This is the same height as a basketball hoop, which is why some players, after scoring a touchdown, pretend to dunk the football over the crossbar as if showing off their basketball skills. NFL goal posts must measure 18 feet, 6 inches wide. The posts themselves must extend at least 30 feet above the crossbar.
In the early days of college football

, in the mid- to late-1800s, the goal post was simply composed of two uprights planted in the ground. In 1876, a cross bar was added to give those early goal posts a “H” look. Not long after, goal posts were re-designed yet again to more closely resemble a “Y.” Goal posts also used to be located in the middle of the end zone with the crossbar and posts right along the goal line. In 1974, the goal posts were moved behind the end zones, with the cross bar and uprights on the same plane as the end line at the back of each end zone.
All NFL goal posts must be painted bright gold. Most college, high school and recreational leagues also have yellow or gold goal posts. In addition, at the top of each goal post, a sturdy ribbon 4 inches wide and 42 inches long must be affixed. The ribbons help the players and coaches gauge the speed and direction of the wind on kicks.
Goal posts in college also measure 18 feet, 6 inches wide, with crossbars that are 10 feet off the ground. In college and high school, however, the uprights only need to be 10 to 15 high above the crossbar. In addition, high school goal posts measure 23 feet, 4 inches wide, to encourage more scoring with a wider target at which to kick.

Throwing Games for Children

Throwing games allow your child to throw balls and beanbags in a controlled environment, instead of inside the house where he may break your valuables. Once your child reaches 4 to 6 years old, he is at a stage of gross motor skill development where throwing games can help him practice using large muscle groups. In addition, the Encyclopedia of Children¡¯s Health notes that throwing games can help your child with fine motor skill eye-hand and foot-eye development.
Patience and practice are important to keep in mind when teaching throwing games to children

. Because motor development occurs at a different rate for each child, the Encyclopedia of Children¡¯s Health stresses the importance of not pushing your child to a higher level before she is ready. If she is not ready for group activities, choose throwing games she can play by herself or with you. Helping your child learn to throw lies in actively participating in teaching throwing and other games, according to the University of Missouri-Extension.
The beanbag throw is a game your child can play either by herself or in a group setting. Game materials include one or more beanbags, some tape or string and an optional bucket or basket. Use the tape or string to mark two lines about 6 feet apart. If you are using a basket, place it on one line, and then have your child or the group stand at the other. The goal, whether your child is practicing by himself or playing with a group, is to see how many times each child can hit the basket with a beanbag.
Chant ball and clap and catch are two more throwing games your child can play individually or within a group setting. The goal of chant ball is to throw a ball in the air and keep it there by clasping your hands together and batting it back into the air before it reaches the ground. Counting aloud each time the ball goes up also gives your child a chance to practice her counting skills. To play clap and catch, toss a ball in the air and clap once before catching it. Encourage your child with enthusiastic praise when she is successful in the games.
Spud is a group game. To start, each child is assigned a number and one child gets to be ¡°it.¡± The child who is ¡°it¡± stands in the middle while everyone else circles around him. ¡°It¡± throws a soft foam ball in the air and calls out a number while the children in the circle start running. The child who was assigned that number must return, catch the ball and call ¡°spud

.¡± When he does, everyone else must stop running. The player with the ball then throws it toward another player. If he hits the player, she gets a letter in the word ¡°spud¡± and becomes ¡°it.¡± If he misses the player, he keeps the letter and becomes ¡°it.¡± As each player gets enough letters to spell the entire word, that player must sit out the rest of the game. The last player standing wins.

Longest Winning Streaks in Baseball History

A baseball winning streak refers to an uninterrupted number of games won. As a former major league player John Lowenstein stated, ¡°The secret to keeping winning streaks going is to maximize the victories while at the same time minimizing the defeats¡± There may be no other sport out there that has any greater history and tradition than baseball.
The 1916 the New York Giants won 26 games in row, with one tie on Sept. 18, 1916

. Major League Baseball rules exclude games that end in a tie from being documented as official statistics. The official MLB longest winning streak belongs to the 1935 Chicago Cubs at 21 games. In the American League the 2002 Oakland Athletics hold the longest winning streak at 20 games.
The NCAA all division single season consecutive win record for baseball is 46 games set by the Division II 2000 Savannah State University Tigers. In NCAA Division I the 1977 Texas Longhorns and the 1999 Florida Atlantic Owls both won 34 consecutive games. In 2008 the Trinity College Bantams set the NCAA Division III record with a 44-game winning streak.
The longest winning streak in the World Championship belongs to the Cuban National team. The streak started in 1984 and ended in 2007, with Cuba winning 9 consecutive World Cup titles. Team Cuba was on display for the entire World to see as the record was established. The streak ended 2007 in Taipei City, as USA defeated Cuba 6-3.
Each winning streak in baseball is meant to have an ending. The records are a part of history and represent the standard set for the next record breaker. An article written by Robert Ayzin in “Baseball Digest” reminds us that, ¡°some parts of baseball record books will stand the test of time remaining unchanged and constant.¡±

How NFL Equipment Works

Anyone who has ever watched an NFL game knows that equipment is a big part of the sport of professional football. Every part of the player’s body is covered and protected by some sort of equipment.

The LSU Football Workout Program

The Southeastern Conference has become one of the dominant leagues in college football, with Louisiana State winning national championships in 1958, 2003 and 2007. For the 2007 run, head coach Les Miles was at the helm of the Tigers. Strength and conditioning coach Tom Moffitt got much of the credit for getting his players in tremendous shape for the championship run.
Louisiana State’s offseason training for football season begins two weeks after the end of the previous season. Much of the offseason work is devoted to strength training and cardiovascular conditioning. The intensity of preparation picks up before the start of the season. In an interview with Stack Magazine, LSU strength and conditioning coach Tom Moffitt said the team’s preparation matches the length of the season. “The most important aspect of training is your preparation,” Moffitt said. “It should equal the length of your competitive season, so if you plan on playing for 12 weeks in the fall, you need 12 weeks of preparation in the summer.”
Players at Louisiana State concentrate on building explosive strength before the start of football season. Moffitt wants his players to establish their maximums in their core-lifting exercises. Those exercises include the hang clean, back squat, bench press, barbell press

, hang snatch, incline bench, clean pull, power clean and split jerk. The weight room at LSU is comparable those belonging to NFL teams. The weight room includes 28 multi-power stations, 36 automated machines and 10 dumbbell stations.
LSU¡¯s program requires football players to build strong core muscles and abs. Moffit wants his players to do five sets of ab exercises to build a stronger trunk. Moffitt emphasizes core development at LSU for helping players avoid late-season injuries. The exercises he recommends include sit-ups with resistance, hanging leg raises

, Russian twists, lateral leg raises and front or side planks, three times per week.
In addition to its offseason weight work, LSU devotes four days every spring to speed and agility training. This is done as the team prepares to play its spring football game and is designed to make players quicker and faster in the fourth quarter of games. This is quite a bit different from most programs that don’t separate out the speed, quickness and agility aspects of football from other aspects of conditioning, according to Moffitt.
