The loss that changed? We didn’t talk together, I was…

Posted on

first_imgAt the turn of the century he had to go to increase his glory, but in the end he ended up with a hard floor. So sm Vmola will announce the loss after only 127 seconds.Everyone saw how much the loss had taken him, but no one knew that it had significantly affected his relationship with his partner Lela, who was expecting his daughter Lili for a while.I’ve been with Carlos for years and I didn’t go to lose. I didn’t know how the loss would be. And the fact is that he coped with it after his, described in an interview for as.sk Lela last week.At that moment, going with Vmola was official, but their relationship tended into the abyss. As Lela revealed shortly after the break-up, she gave her apartment a rent in her Bratislava apartment in front of her mother and was preparing to leave her partner.Njak as we had a quiet household. I regretted that he didn’t want to talk about it, that he wanted to be with him. I’m sorry he lost because he’s an excellent athlete and, as hard as he was, described disappointed Lela.That’s why I was alone, she sighed.The first birth of her daughter Lili was perhaps the only bright spot for Vmola in the last year. For some time, thanks to their parents, they also suffered a few crises, as evidenced by their infusions on Instagram. In one of them, Lela accused Carlos of having seven whores in Saint-Tropez, one of whom was supposed to be his ex-partner.In the end, Lela identified Lera as a reason for their relationship to fall apart. She broke her ashes from her old age, when in her own week he wrote about neve as a day.last_img read more

McGuigan wins Florida speed class with Capall Zidane

first_img Tags: capall zidane, ronan mcguigan, WEF McGuigan wins Florida speed class with Capall Zidane 5 February 2015, 17:13 RONAN McGuigan won the opening speed class in Florida last night (Wednesday), making it the third week in a row that Ireland has claimed this prize at Wellington’s Winter Equestrian Festival.Second place also went to Ireland, with Co. Down’s Conor Swail and Ariana just an eighth of a second behind McGuigan and his Baloubet de Rouet gelding Capall Zidane.Tyrone-born McGuigan and Capall Zidane had a great 2014 season, including wins in the USA during November and December. After a little time off, Capall Zidane was back in action in week two of WEF and jumped to his first win of 2015 in week three’s 1.45m jump-off class. The 11-year-old gelding had last week off and came back fresh and ready to kick off week five with a win.“He felt good today. He was very fresh, and he was going forward,” McGuigan noted. “The course ideally did not suit me. There were a lot of turn backs and stuff. He prefers more of a gallop, but I’ll take it. Usually I give him quite a bit of room on the turn backs, but he is very fast over the ground, so once I get over the jump I am able to get away fast.”The win feels greater for McGuigan after winning over his friend and trainer, Conor Swail.“I got to beat my trainer, which is even better,” McGuigan smiled. “He helps me a lot. We are best buddies, but that made the win even sweeter. I’ll have lots of bragging rights now!”Conor Swail and Simba de la Roque won Week Three’s opening Speed class at the Florida venue, while Offaly’s Darragh Kenny claimed the top two spots in the same competition on Week Four, with Picolo in first place and the Irish Sport Horse Gatsby as runner-up.Ronan McGuigan and Capall Zidane Related news stories Home  »  Disciplines News  »  Showjumping News  »  McGuigan wins Florida speed class with Capall Zidane 29 November 2014, 11:23 Babington and McGuigan make it an Irish double in Floridalast_img read more

B&B Rapid Fire: Manziel, Elam, Winston and More

Posted on

first_imgBrett 1: After a conference game between Utah Valley and New Mexico State, a brawl broke out on the court, when a player threw the basketball at his opponent (Watch the Video HERE).  Players, coaches and even fans began throwing punches after a court-storming.  Should the NCAA ban court-storming, citing safety issues for everyone involved?BK: Although the Southeastern Conference has had success in banning the joyous, silly tradition, I do not think that the NCAA has the willpower or ability to get involved. This particular incident is very sad, as two schools made national news for the wrong reasons. I hope that we can get back to rooting for our respective teams, enjoying rivalries for what they are, and allow college students to enjoy a major victory with their team.Barry 2: We mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Seahawks QB, Russell Wilson, was working out with the Texas Rangers during Spring Training (read our reaction HERE).  Now Heisman winner and National Championship QB, Jameis Winston is playing baseball for Florida State during the football off season. Do you think he could be a professional two-sport star?BD: Like I mentioned before, I am not opposed to the idea of another Deion Sanders or Brian Jordan or Bo Jackson, wrecking havoc in two different sports.  The problem is none of those athletes were a QB; it just takes too much dedication in preparation to become elite in the NFL.  Winston could be the first overall pick in next year’s NFL draft, which means he will have the added pressure of performing right away. Taking time away from the mental grind that is involved in not only mastering an offensive scheme, but  earning the respect of your teammates as the face of the franchise and leader of the team, would simply be a mistake. Brett 2: Thankfully ESPN analyst (and QB guru), Ron Jaworski stated that he would not take Texas A&M QB, Johnny Manziel, in the first three rounds of the upcoming draft (making me feel much better about my analysis).  You already know that I do not believe he is a first round prospect (let alone a top 10 pick, as heard HERE), but what is your reaction to “Jaws” analysis on the controversial former Heisman winner?BK: Jaworski’s analysis on Manziel may not be popular, but it is more accurate than those experts who consider Johnny Football to be a top 10 prospect. The success of Russell Wilson, a shorter quarterback with abnormally large hands and great awareness, has paved the way for Manziel to be fairly evaluated. However, there are a lot of question marks when it comes to Manziel, both as a person as a player. Teams in the top 10 who are in the market for a quarterback (Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland) would all be making a mistake to use their first selection on Manziel. By giving Manziel a mid-round grade, Jaworski is essentially saying that the former Heisman winner would be best served in a backup role to start his career, with the potential to become a starter. Following the NFL Combine, Manziel still appears to be a top 10 pick, but teams would be wise to take note of the dissenting opinion. Barry 3: This NFL off season, most players are taking time off relaxing, preparing their minds and bodies for another grueling  season. Well, Ravens second year Safety, Matt Elam, has a different approach; he took a job as a shoe salesman at Finish Line to gain a better understanding of the business (which he plans to invest in the future).  What is your reaction to Elam taking a job this off season, preparing for his life after football?BD: After the past couple weeks of bad news for the Ravens, this definitely uplifts the spirits, when looking at a young man that just simply gets “it.”  Elam obviously already has an understanding that football does not last forever, while preparing for a career after he hangs up his cleats.  Realistically, he could only hope to last in the NFL for the next decade; meaning he needs to find a way to occupy his time for the following 40-50 years of his life.  Add in the fact that with his notoriety as a professional athlete, the money he does make while on the field, will likely not last to support his family in the future.  Elam has proven to be a smart and mature young man beyond his years, with his humility to clock in and out of a “low-paying” job; professional sports needs more people like this. By: Brett Dickinson and Barry KamenEach week on the Brett & Barry Show (Saturdays 9am-12pm), we gather each others’ analysis of the big news stories and headlines of the week for a couple minutes a piece in a segment we call Rapid Fire.  We will post our answers in blog form every week to a visual version, with links to our segment in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault.Listen HERE to last week’s Rapid Fire Segment.Barry 1: During the first week of Spring Training, Frank Robinson visited the Orioles in Sarasota, where he bumped into prospect Josh Hart in the hallway of the facility.  When Hart did not recognize the Hall of Famer, Manager Buck Showalter assigned him a research report on Robinson’s career and impact for the organization and the MLB.  What is your reaction to Showalter handing out a homework assignment to the 19 year old prospect?BD: I absolutely love this move by Buck, as a man that knows baseball and the history of the game.  I think more players need to understand how they received the opportunity to be on a major league roster; it started with players, like Frank Robinson, paving the way.  A lot is lost with younger generations, when it comes to appreciation for those who changed the game for the better.  Josh Hart will not only be a smarter person because of this “assignment,” but a better ball player as well.  He has the opportunity to make millions upon millions of dollars in the near future, which would not have been possible without Frank Robinson. Brett 3: Reports came out that the Browns tried to work out a deal to trade for San Francisco 49ers Head Coach, Jim Harbaugh. Looking at a deal that would cost multiple draft picks, for a coach who has led his team to three straight championship games (and one Super Bowl loss).  Would you make such a deal if you were either team?BK: The Cleveland Browns should not be ashamed to admit that they were interested in Jim Harbaugh. He has proven himself to be one of the top coaches in both college and professional football, and his track record of taking bad teams and turning them into winners speaks for itself. The Browns have not had the proper leadership in place for quite some time, and getting a man like Harbaugh via trade makes sense, no matter what the cost. Unlike Robert Griffin III, there isn’t an injury risk associated with dealing a number of high draft picks.If I were the San Francisco 49ers, I would have entertained, but not accepted an offer for Harbaugh. While the 49ers could absolutely put the extra draft picks to good use, there is no way of putting a value on Harbaugh’s relationship with QB Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers are just too close to winning the Super Bowl to make such a drastic change.last_img read more

Ndidi Makes Injury Return As Iheanacho Helps Leceister Thrash West Ham

Posted on

first_imgWilfred Ndidi’s return from injury saw Leicester City snap a three-game winless spell to beat West Ham 4-1 with Super Eagles teammate Kelechi Iheanacho also instrumental to the win at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.Key midfielder Ndidi had been expected to miss six weeks of action after injuring his meniscus in training but made a “miraculous recovery” to boost the Foxes just 13 days after a knee surgery.He’d missed the Foxes’ last three games all of which Leicester failed to win but was named on the bench alongside compatriot Iheanacho for the encounter at the Kings Power.Ndidi made an earlier than expected entrance into the fray after he was introduced for the injured Nampalys Mendy in the 34th minute with Leicester leading through Harvey Barnes’ effort.Iheanacho also owed his introduction to an injury as leading scorer Jamie Vardy hobbled off with the Nigerian coming on in his place in the 43rd minute and Leicester doubled their lead minutes later through Ricardo Pereira’s sumptuous finish from Barnes’ cutback.Ndidi’s rustiness was shown up in the second half as he gave away a penalty which was converted by West Ham captain Mark Noble to cut the deficit but the Foxes scored twice late on with Iheanacho playing a vital part in both goals.First, Iheanacho won a penalty after he was hacked down by Angelo Ogbonna in the 80th minute with Ayoze Perez scoring the spot-kick to put Leicester 3-1 up.The Nigerian forward then helped Perez to a brace eight minutes later freeing up the Spaniard to drill in a fourth with minutes to go as Leicester got back to winning ways after four games.Relatedlast_img read more

(Sept. 22) – Holding off late pressure from C.J. Putnam, Preston Jones scored the victory in the 25-lap IMCA Modified main event Saturday at Southern Oregon Speedway.This was the first career win in the division for Jones.Jones passed Jentzen Knips for the lead and was pulling away before a lap 15 caution.

The front two cars ran closely as Zack Fettinger had settled into the third position.A multi-car tangle brought out the final yellow flag on lap 21. Jones led the restart with Putnam giving him all the pressure he could handle. Putnam attempted to get by several times in the remaining four laps, but Jones held him off for the hard-earned victory. Fettinger finished third.Leading all the way, Doug Coffman won the 20-lap Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature.

All rights reservedPowered by WPeMatico Related iStock/Thinkstock(MIAMI) — Every member of the Miami Dolphins is now registered to vote.The Dolphins, in conjunction with the Drum Major Institute, announced that every player has filed the necessary paperwork to vote in the 2018 election. The voter registration initiative began in June, when Drum Major Institute members Martin Luther King III and Bill Wachtel came to a Dolphins practice to register players to vote.The Drum Major Institute’s website claims this is the first professional sports team to have a full roster of registered voters.King plans to spread the voting initiative to other sports franchises, according to the Miami Herald.“I salute the Miami Dolphins for their leadership in realizing upon my father’s dream of a society where all Americans can and do vote,” King said in a statement put out by the Dolphins. “Today, we celebrate the fact that every player on the Dolphins roster is a registered voter. What makes this truly special is that this voter registration effort, which was begun by Kenny Stills, has been spreading throughout the NFL and other sports leagues. As my father often said, that short step into the voting booth is the longest stride for democracy.”The Dolphins statement also announced the creation by owner Stephen Ross and players of an annual fund for advocacy and justice.

New Austin incident not related to serial bombings, police say

Posted on

first_imgABC News(AUSTIN, Texas) — Law enforcement officials said an incident involving an artillery simulator that went off in Austin, Texas, Tuesday evening is not related to a series of recent bombings.The string of explosions in Austin, which have left two dead and injured others, has the city on edge and sparked hundreds of law enforcement to descend on the area. Earlier on Tuesday, a package detonated at a FedEx facility near San Antonio, injuring one.Reports of a package explosion at a Goodwill store on Brodie Lane Tuesday night initially sparked panic, but police later said the incident involved an artillery simulator and was not connected to the so-called serial bomber terrorizing the area.A male Goodwill employee was injured when he handled the device, police said in a press conference Tuesday. The device was one of two dropped off in a box at Goodwill, police said, adding that they will investigate who left the devices at the store.Police said there was no reason to believe the incident was a copycat attempt related to the recent bombings.An unexploded package bomb was discovered earlier Tuesday at the FedEx facility in Austin, Texas, two sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News, the sixth device connected to the serial bomber. Among the devices are five package bombs and one device involving a tripwire.The intact package was discovered by FedEx workers, the company said in a statement, and could yield major clues in the hunt for the serial bomber terrorizing Austin.“We have also confirmed that the individual responsible [for Tuesday’s package bomb] also shipped a second package that has now been secured and turned over to law enforcement,” FedEx said in its statement but did not reveal which of its facilities the package was discovered in.The two sources confirmed to ABC News the undetonated package was discovered at an Austin facility.“We have provided law enforcement responsible for this investigation extensive evidence related to these packages and the individual that shipped them collected from our advanced technology security systems,” FedEx said. “The safety and security measures in place across the FedEx networks are designed to protect the safety of our people, customers and communities, and to assist law enforcement as appropriate.”The FBI has discovered a link between packages involved in the Austin bombings and a mail delivery office at a strip mall in the neighboring city of Sunset Valley. Police cordoned off the area and were combing through the office Tuesday.In his first public comments on the Texas bombings, which started March 2, President Donald Trump said the federal government is doing everything it can think of to catch the culprits.“These are sick people and we need to find them immediately,” Trump told reporters at the White House.Tuesday’s explosion in the San Antonio suburb of Schertz occurred about 12:45 a.m. at a FedEx facility. About 65 miles away, two men were injured Sunday night in the fourth bombing in 17 days to rock the Texas capital.Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told the Austin City Council this morning that the package that exploded in Schertz originated at a facility in Austin that has been closed.“A package had been traveling along an automated conveyor when it exploded,” Schertz Police Chief Michael Hanson said at a news conference outside the Schertz FexEx facility this morning.Hanson said the injured worker complained of “ringing in her ears,” was treated at the scene and released.Earlier Tuesday, police told ABC San Antonio affiliate KSAT-TV that the medium-sized box that exploded contained nails and metal shrapnel.Jim McClusky, a spokesman for FedEx, confirmed in a statement to ABC News that “a single package exploded” and that one worker was treated for minor injuries.There were 75 people in the building at the time of the explosion, authorities said.“This is a fluid investigation and we want the general public to know their safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Frank Ortega, ATF acting assistant special agent in charge.He said the ATF’s National Response Team and bomb-sniffing dogs were searching the facility for other possible explosives.Neither Ortega or FBI assistant special agent James Smith, who both spoke at the news conference, would say if investigators definitively believe the explosion is connected to the Austin bombings.Manley said investigators from his department, the FBI and the ATF were working to determine whether the explosive is the work of a serial bomber or bombers who have terrorized Austin since the beginning of the month.“We’ve seen an evolution in the type of devices, the one in Schertz involves a delivery service. What we are seeing here is unprecedented,” Manley told the city council.He cautioned residents to pay close attention to any suspicious device whether it be a package, a bag, a backpack “or anything that looks out of place” and advised residents to immediately call 911 and stay clear of the suspicious items.Manley said Monday at a news conference on the Austin explosions, “Clearly we are dealing with a serial bomber.”Austin residents have been on edge for a month after the series of bombings. The first three bombings were packages, apparently hand-delivered and left on porches of homes before exploding when picked up by residents, police said.The fourth explosion took place Sunday night. Two men, ages 22 and 23, were injured in that blast, which was caused by a device using a tripwire on a sidewalk in the Travis Country neighborhood of Austin.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Weddle did a little bit of everything for Utes

Posted on

first_imgE-MAIL: sor@desnews.com Contributing: Dirk Facer, Brad Rock Related SAN FRANCISCO — You’d think the Most Valuable Defensive Player of the Emerald Bowl would get a little more respect that Eric Weddle did Thursday night.The press box announcer had problems with his name all night, calling him “WEE-dle,” “We-DELL,” and “Widdle,” everything but “WED-dle,” as he’s been known by throughout his three-year career at Utah.Weddle was a jack of all trades again in the Utes’ Emerald Bowl victory, playing cornerback, returning punts, running the ball, passing the ball, holding the ball on kicks and even running the ball off a fake field goal.Weddle’s biggest job was watching Georgia Tech’s all-American receiver Calvin Johnson, and he did a superb job holding him to just two catches for 19 yards.”I took it as a challenge, because no one gives you a chance,” he said. “You want to prove everybody wrong.”About the only thing Weddle did wrong was throw an interception in one of his stints as a quarterback. After a botched play, he was trying to throw it away, but had it intercepted in the end zone from 50 yards out. “I didn’t get enough oomph into it,” he said. ANOTHER QUARTERBACK: Utah coach Kyle Whittingham declined comment on his team’s impending quarterback controversy calling it a nice problem to have. He did, however, draw laughs in his postgame press conference by adding Weddle’s name to a pool of candidates for the job that includes Brett Ratliff, who is coming off of the best passing performance in Utah bowl history, Brian Johnson and Tommy Grady. A PLACE IN THE SUN: Utah linebacker Spencer Toone said even if this wasn’t his team’s best season, it deserves a place in history.Asked how the 2005 Utes might be characterized, he said, “I think as one of the teams with the most character.” He continued, “You know what? We’re not going to be characterized as the best team, but as one of the most high-character teams.” MOMENTS TO REMEMBER: Ute defensive coordinator Gary Andersen said despite last year’s historic Fiesta Bowl season, this year’s club provided its own memories.”These kids had every type of life experience you could have,” he said. “They had the lowest of lows when we lost three in a row and now the highest of the highs.” Asked whether finishing as they did this year is as sweet as rolling through every game, as they did last year, he added, “There was a lot of sweetness. Every year is different, but this year provided some very, very sweet memories.” STILL ABOVE AVERAGE: Weddle was both happy and realistic about the Utes’ season, which had a strong ending but a weak middle. “Seven-and-five is still mediocre,” said Weddle, “but it’s better than 6-6.” THE NEXT LEVEL: Utah’s Quinton Ganther, who finished the season with 1,127 yards rushing (fifth-highest in team history), has accepted an invitation to participate in the NFL Draft Combine, Feb. 23 to March 1 in Indianapolis. NFLDraftScout.com ranks him as the 18th best running back prospect. Former Utah quarterback Brett Elliott, who transferred to Div. II Linfield College near his home in Oregon two years ago, is also headed to the RCA Dome that week. He’s also scheduled to participate in the Las Vegas All-American Classic on Jan. 14 and the Hula Bowl in Hawaii a week later. NFLDraftScout.com ranks him 15th at quarterback. Both Ganther and Elliott are projected to be drafted in the sixth or seventh rounds. SENIOR FINALE: Several senior starters concluded their Utah careers at the Emerald Bowl. The now-former-Utes include captains Jesse Boone, Steve Fifita, Spencer Toone and Ganther, as well as Travis LaTendresse, David Dirkmaat, Chad Jacobsen, Eugene Oates, kicker Dan Beardall and long snapper Brock Condie.”It’s been a pleasure having those guys in the program,” Whittingham said of the entire senior class. He praised their hard work and is elated they were able to finish with a bowl appearance. Boone and Fifita each have a game left to play, They’ll represent the Utes in the Hula Bowl and East-West Shrine Game, respectively, on Jan. 21. RECORD DAY: A combined total of 12 individual and nine team Emerald Bowl records were broken. So, too, was the Mountain West’s three-game losing streak in the game. The league’s lone win may stand for quite a while. Starting next season, the San Francisco-based contest enters into a new four-year agreement to pit teams from the Pac-10 and Atlantic Coast Conference. EXTRA POINTS: Scouts from three NFL teams (Seattle Seahawks, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders) and two CFL franchises (Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos) attended the game . . . The Emerald Bowl used instant replay for the first time . . . “Buzz,” the Georgia Tech mascot, was at the center of a trademark controversy with Salt Lake City’s Triple-A baseball team several years ago. The matter was eventually resolved and the Salt Lake Buzz became the Stingers and now the Bees . . . The officiating crew came from the Mid-American Conference . . . Attendance was 25,742.
