Royals on cusp of championship after stealing Game 4 from Mets By Jeff Passan 8 hours ago Yahoo Sports NEW YORK – Give the Kansas City Royals an inch and they will take a borough. As all of Citi Field teetered on the edge Saturday day – as Queens nibbled its fingernails to nubs just the same – the New York Mets desperately tried to hold onto the fourth game of the World Series that was slipping from their stranglehold. On came closer Jeurys Familia, so reliable this season, and out went a groundball to second baseman Daniel Murphy, so integral this October, and the inch – the one between Murphy’s glove and the ball – was Kansas City’s. And so went ...

George Strait: a fond, funny look back at the King’s career George Strait headlines first concert at the new Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in 2009. / MAX FAULKNER By Shirley Jinkins Posted 10:16pm on Wednesday, Jun. 04, 2014 George Strait has always been more at home in dusty rodeo ovals and team-roping arenas than in the huge football stadiums and concert venues where he has played out his remarkable run in the music business. Calf-roping turf is where I believe I first saw him perform informally, in San Angelo in the ’70s on the college rodeo-ag show circuit. He and the Ace in the Hole Band would become regionally popular at the dance halls and clubs ...

The Curse of the Billy Goat

The Cubs were born the Chicago White Stockings in 1876, one of eight inaugural teams. The team would go on to win the first National league Championship and would become one of sports first dynasties by winning six of the first eleven championship titles (1876, 1880-82, 1885-86). The modern day "Cubs" would come into existence in 1903, and continue their success posting a record in wins in 1906 with 116 games won. This would also be their first pennant win as the "Cubs." The World Series title would be lost to their cross town rivals, the White Sox. The following year, after a repeat pennant, they would go on to win their first World Series title in 1907. They returned ...

Western civilization is in collapse. Every public and private institution in every western country, with the sole exception of Iceland, is corrupt. Government at every level is corrupt. The courts and judicial systems are corrupt. Justice is nonexistent. The financial systems are corrupt. The media is corrupt. The corrupt corporations continue to maximize their profits by destroying the environment and by replacing domestic workers with foreign ones. The income and wealth continues to gravitate to the One Percent. Even sports, which once consisted of games played for fun, are corrupt.

How Jim Harbaugh made Michigan so good so fast
Post Date: 2015-10-18 05:16:06 by BTP Holdings
How Jim Harbaugh made Michigan so good so fast Ivan Maisel, ESPN Senior Writer ANN ARBOR, Michigan -- We know Jim Harbaugh can breathe life into the dead. He took over a Stanford program that had one foot in the FCS and laid the foundation for consecutive Pac-12 championships. And the Michigan program, as exasperating as it had become for Wolverine fans who believe the Rose Bowl is their birthright, was not dead when Harbaugh returned to his alma mater in January. But still. Anyone outside of Schembechler Hall who tells you they saw this coming is telling you a story. As Michigan prepares to host unbeaten and No. 7 Michigan State on Saturday ...

The Great Disco Demolition Riot (1979)
Post Date: 2015-09-19 11:48:30 by Bill D Berger
Disco Demolition Night In the late 1970s, disco had a sizable number of vocal and venomous detractors. One notable critic of the genre was Chicago rock radio DJ Steve Dahl, who became popular for his “Disco Sucks” stance. Knowing that Dahl was popular and people genuinely didn’t like disco, the son of the owner of the Chicago White Sox, Mike Veeck, thought that it would be a good promotional idea to host a Disco Sucks night. On July 12, 1979, Dahl’s listeners could get into the doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers for 98 cents. They were also required to bring a disco record with them because Dahl was going to blow up a pile of disco records. Veeck didn’t think ...

Giants' Rashad Jennings said he was told not to score at end of loss to Cowboys
Post Date: 2015-09-14 16:46:35 by BTP Holdings
Giants' Rashad Jennings said he was told not to score at end of loss to Cowboys By Eric Edholm 5 hours ago Shutdown Corner The New York Giants absolutely choked away their loss to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night, and head coach Tom Coughlin rightfully fell on the sword with a proper mea culpa. It was his fault, the coach said, and not that of Eli Manning, who threw the ball away (stopping the clock) and not taking a sack, which had Twitter all up in arms. “It's my fault at the end of the game,” Coughlin said, via the Daily News. “There is nobody else to blame but me. The decision to throw the ball there on third down was not a good decision. It should have been ...

Police: Texas high school football players 'targeted,' 'blindsided' game official
Post Date: 2015-09-09 10:39:28 by christine
(CNN)The defensive back comes charging in at full speed, knocking his blindsided target to the ground. A teammate follows moments later by diving in helmet-first. These kinds of bone-crushing hits often land the players involved on football highlight reels. But this time, they could land the players in jail. The reason: They didn't level an opposing high school player but a game official. No arrests have been made. Police in Marble Falls, Texas, said they are investigating the incident. Investigators have contacted Burnet County Attorney Eddie Arredondo, whose jurisdiction includes Marble Falls, and the prosecutor has said he is open to filing charges, Marble Falls Police ...

Texas HS Ref Collision to Be Treated as Assault on a School Official By EMILY SHAPIRO 1 hour ago Good Morning America The case of two Texas high school football players who have been accused of intentionally colliding into a referee will be treated as an "assault on a school official," school district officials said at a news conference today.

Swiss Athlete Runs ‘5 Peaks in One Day’ Challenge in Remarkable Time
Post Date: 2015-08-22 12:32:24 by X-15
Andreas Steindl, a Swiss alpinist and adidas Outdoor athlete, recently did a remarkable bit of running. He ran more than 19 miles (30.66 kilometers) from Zermatt to Saas Fee in Switzerland—by crossing five peaks that exceed 4,000 meters (13,120 feet). Even more remarkable is the time he pulled it off in. To run 19 miles, with nearly 13,500 feet of elevation gain over pathless terrain, glaciers and exposed ridges, Steindl needed just 7:45:44. Here’s a video from Epic TV documenting the impressive feat: Poster Comment:Now that's an athlete! He took risks and accomplished a physical feat way beyond the mundane safety of running up and down a short field inside of a stadium.
