The Greatest. Remembering Richie Benaud, 1930-2015
I'll need to switch sports for a moment here. But it's important. The greatest of television sports commentators died last week. Richie Benaud, the Australian cricket commentator.

"Rochester was ahead of the curve in the late 1990s and the rest of the country is now there, We have to show that we can play at a high level and excite the crowd as those teams did back in the day. That's a challenge. The crowd here is somewhat sophisticated and has high standards. They've seen a dominant team and that's what they want to see when they go to the games. It's our job to try and give them what they want.''

-- Rochester Rhinos head coach Bob Lilley on the USL city that was once mentioned as an MLS expansion candidate. The Rhinos used to average over 10,000 a game. Over the past six seasons, they've averaged 6,114 fans a game. (Rochester Democrat & Chronicle)
