Call-In Shows

first_imgAs I am sitting here watching the snow come down writing this article, I am thinking–What if this is happening the day this article appears on the Website?  If it does, Marty Brenneman and his side kick for that day will have to bring out their “banana phone” to field questions while the snow/rain delay goes on.I have often been tempted to call during a delay or call into a general call-in sports show at times.  However, I always chicken out before I pick up the phone.  I don’t want to be made fun of by all of those “experts” who are listening.I have noticed that there are two kinds of callers to these shows.  The first ones are the fans who really have a legitimate question.  They might ask “how long is an injured player going to be out”; or, “who do you think will replace an injured playe?”.  The other callers are those “experts” who have all the answers.  Most of them probably have only played baseball in their minds, because what they say usually makes little sense or they are simply calling to vent their anger at some particular ball player.After 5 or 6 of these angry callers, Marty is usually looking to the umpires and ground crew to get the diamond ready quickly so they can go on with the game.last_img read more

FA Cup: Saka, Nketiah fire Arsenal to fifth round

first_imgRelatedPosts Gundogan tests positive for coronavirus Derby County want Jordon Ibe EPL: Gunners survive West Ham scare Arsenal academy graduates Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah struck to send the Gunners through to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win at Bournemouth. Nketiah’s first Arsenal goal since the 3-1 Premier League win at Burnley in May confirmed a commanding victory for Mikel Arteta’s men and condemned struggling Bournemouth to another demoralising defeat. Saka set the Gunners on their way with his third goal of the term, before teeing up Nketiah for the easiest of finishes at a chilly Dean Court to tee up a fifth-round trip to Portsmouth. Young Cherries striker Sam Surridge finished neatly in added time to offer the hosts late hope, but Lewis Cook blazed over with the last action as Eddie Howe’s men failed to force a replay at the Emirates. Shkodran Mustafi’s ankle injury tainted an otherwise impressive win. The German landed awkwardly on his right ankle after colliding with his onrushing goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez. Arsenal will be more than happy with a trip to League One’s Pompey, leaving just that ankle blow to Mustafi as the sole blot on their Monday night trip to Dorset. The Gunners can now prep for Sunday’s league trip to Burnley with a spring in their step, while another miserable night for Bournemouth leaves Eddie Howe’s Cherries further embattled. A run of league fixtures against Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Burnley could now prove decisive in their Premier League survival fight. Arsenal began their south coast victory quest within five minutes, with Saka blasting into the roof of the net for a fine finish, albeit one he should never have been afforded. Willock rolled Gosling with risible ease and played on to Martinelli on the inside left. Then one Gunners teenager fed another and Saka lashed home. The goal was as pleasing on the eye for Arsenal as it was worrying for a Bournemouth side lacking any kind of bite. The Cherries’ problematic malaise inched on throughout an underwhelming half, and the only surprise was that Arsenal added just one more goal. Nketiah enjoyed a productive outing on his second Arsenal appearance of the season after returning from his loan at Leeds. Saka cantered down the left in acres of space, rolled a facile ball across the face of goal and Nketiah tapped home a move he had started with a neat lay-off to Willock. Harry Wilson found the target to draw a regulation save from Martinez, then Gosling headed high over the bar. Arsenal continued to dominate without any great exertion after the break, but suffered a blow when Mustafi was carried off just shy of the hour. Bournemouth capitalised on the defensive readjustment to cause mayhem at a corner, but Jack Simpson headed wide with the goal at his mercy after Martinez unwisely stepped off his line. As Arsenal looked to play out the win, Surridge popped up with a smart finish after a neat piece of control. Eight minutes of added time even allowed Bournemouth to hunt an equaliser, but Cook blasted over from 18 yards.Tags: BournemouthBukayo SakaEddie NketiahFA CupMikel Artetalast_img read more

Bolt coasts through into 200m semis

first_imgBy Nick MulvenneyRIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) – Usain Bolt roused a quiet morning at the Olympic stadium as only he can yesterday, remaining firmly on course for his historic ‘triple triple’ by coasting through the 200 metres heat in 20.28 seconds.Racing in the ninth heat and cheered every step of the way by the sparse but vocal crowd, the Jamaican led coming off the bend and was able to take his foot off the gas to progress comfortably to Wednesday’s semi-finals.Bolt secured the 100 metres title on Sunday to take another step on the path to an unprecedented third successive sweep of all three Olympic sprint titles — 100, 200 and 4×100 metres.The Jamaican considers the 200 his specialist event and has promised to mount a Rio assault on his 1999 world record of 19.19, but that will have to wait for the final.“I’ve recovered but I’m a bit tired,” Bolt told reporters.“I’m not really a morning person, I just came out here to qualify and that’s what I did. I get nervous because it’s my favourite event and I don’t want to lose. I’ll be much better tomorrow.”The man most likely to beat him, Justin Gatlin, also had no problems getting through, even if he coasted through the final 20 metres to win his heat in a relatively pedestrian 20.42.The American said he had already moved on from the disappointment of being beaten once again at a major championship by Bolt after winning silver in the 100.“I’m been motivated since the day I got here and I’ll be motivated until that last shot across the line,” said the 34-year-old.“I’m in a whole different event now, I have to take my 100 metres hat off and concentrate on the 200. It’s not even about time at this stage, it’s about execution.”His compatriot LaShawn Merritt is the fastest man this year over the half-lap and he showed no signs of fatigue from winning a bronze medal in the 400 metres on Sunday, a strong finish carrying him to victory in heat eight in 20.15.Canada’s Andre de Gasse, bronze medallist in the 100, ran the quickest time of the session, clocking 20.09 to cross first in the final heat.Bolt’s compatriot Yohan Blake, who finished fourth in the 100 on Sunday, was third on the timesheets, easing up over the last 10 metres to finish in 20.13.“I’m really feeling comfortable,” said Blake. “My chances are really good, I (have) been training really hard and I’m feeling more speed and strength.”American Ameer Webb had to sweat it out to qualify on time after finishing third in the same heat, which was won by Bruno Hortelano in a Spanish record time of 20.12, but his 20.31 ultimately proved quick enough to keep him in the competition.last_img read more
