Leg break

A leg break is a type of delivery in the sport of cricket. It is a delivery of a right-handed leg spin bowler. A leg break is bowled by holding the cricket ball in the palm of the hand with the seam running across under all the fingers; as the ball is released, the wrist is rotated to the left and the ball flicked by the ring finger, giving the ball an anti-clockwise spin as seen from behind. When the ball bounces on the pitch, the spin causes it to deviate towards the left from the bowler's perspective; the ball spins away from the leg side, this is where it gets the name leg break, meaning it breaks away from the leg. The turn is when the ball pitches. A leg spin bowler will bowl leg breaks, varying them by adjusting the line and length, amount of side spin versus topspin of the deliveries. Leg breaks are considered to be one of the more difficult spin deliveries for a right-handed batsman to play because the ball moves away from their body; this means that any miscalculation can result in an outside edge off the bat and a catch going to the wicket-keeper or slip fielders.

Alternatively, for a ball aimed outside the leg stump, the breaking may be so sharp that the ball goes behind a right-handed batsman and hits the stumps – the batsman is said to be "bowled around his legs". The animation on this page illustrates such a delivery. A left-handed batsman has less difficulty facing leg spin bowling, because the ball moves in towards the batsman's body, meaning the batsman's legs are in the path of the ball if it misses the bat or takes an edge; this makes it difficult for the bowler to get the batsman out caught from a leg break. A ball bowled by a left-arm unorthodox spin bowler with a leg break action spins in the opposite direction, i.e. from left to right as the bowler sees it. Such a ball is not called a leg break but a left-arm unorthodox spinner or "Chinaman". Ball of the Century Flipper Googly Off break Topspinner

To promote the album the band released the live versions of "Oblivion", "Ghost of Karelia" and "Crack the Skye" on YouTube; the DVD features the Crack the Skye film, the album in video format, in its entirety. Thom Jurek of Allmusic described the live performance by stating "There is little to no spontaneity or improvisation --, neither here nor there -- because what Mastodon do musically is so impressive. All their stop-and-start, fret-ripping, finger-cracking, knotty riffology and technical acumen are on full display." He added that "The band's "cleaned up" vocals are disappointing live: neither Brent Hinds, Troy Sanders or Brann Dailor sing on key anywhere here.

Given that'sung vocals' highlighting lyrics are such an important part of the band's M. O. now, this is distracting to a fault." All tracks are written by Mastodon, except additional lyrics on "Aqua Dementia" and "Crack the Skye" by Scott Kelly and "The Bit" by Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover. Troy Sanders – bass, vocals Brent Hinds – lead guitar, vocals Bill Kelliher – rhythm guitar, backing vocals Brann Dailor – drums, vocals Derek Mitchka - Keyboards on tracks 1-7

In its second season under head coach Ed Danowski, the team compiled a 1–6–1 record and was outscored opponents by a total of 245 to Rams offense scored 44. After a winless 1946 season, Fordham boosters raised money for 30 new scholarships. In addition, the school made several additions to its coaching staff, including the hiring of Vince Lombardi. Lombardi was responsible for coaching the freshman team. In addition, he helped the varsity team implement the T-Formation on offense. Lombardi did this for a salary of $3,500 a year. Athletic director Jack Coffey stated that he thought Lombardi would one day become head coach of the varsity team; the freshman team was Vince Lombardi's first experience as a head coach above the high school level. Many of the freshmen on the team were in their twenties. Three of the freshmen were players that Lombardi had coached in high school: Dick Doheny, Billy White and Larry Higgins.

Twenty-three-year-old freshman Herb Seidell was elected as captain of the freshman team. He had served in the Navy with Leo Paquin, one of Lombardi’s teammates on Fordham’s Seven Blocks of Granite. Dick Doheny was the starting quarterback. One of the highlights for the team was defeating Rutgers freshman team by a score of 12-0; the Rams held the Scarlet Knights to negative yards. After a 33-0 defeat of New York University’s freshman team, the New York Herald Tribune stated that Lombardi should feel proud for a job well done. Other members in the media were optimistic about Lombardi because the varsity team finished the season with a record of 1-6-1
