“We are delighted to have been able to bring one of Europe’s most exciting talents to Chelsea and to further strengthen this part of our squad, both for this season and many more to come.” The 21-year-old had moved to the Premier League in October 2020, joining St Etienne in Ligue 1 for a fee of up to £36.5million.

By Sports games

Chelsea have loaned England winger Callum Hudson-Odoi to Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen for the remainder of the season, the Premier League club confirmed on Tuesday. Hudson-Odoi has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge under Thomas Tuchel and has been an unused substitute in each of their Premier League games this season.

Chelsea have said they reserve the right to recall the 21-year-old in January. Hudson-Odoi has suffered from long injury problems since his senior debut at Chelsea in 2018, including an Achilles tendon injury which sidelined him for five months.

He hasn’t played for Chelsea since an FA Cup win over Luton Town in early March. “Moving to Germany is really exciting for me and I can play in the Champions League with Bayer Leverkusen,” said Hudson-Odoi, who played more than 100 times for Chelsea.

“This combination is really appealing and I can’t wait to get to know the club, the fans and the Bundesliga.” On the club’s website, Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes described Hudson-Odoi as a “quick and penetrating winger”.

“He has everything to be able to help us immediately,” he said. “It will give our attacking game another special component. We are very happy that this transfer has gone through.” Bayer Leverkusen finished third in the Bundesliga last season and will play in Champions League Group B alongside Atletico Madrid, Brugge and Porto.

New scam targets local school sports game streaming services

By Sports games

The Better Business Bureau warns parents of a new scam linked to the streaming of local school sports games. As many high schools across the country switch to streaming games to make them more accessible during the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people are logging on to watch their children, grandchildren, friends and community members. family play.

While this should be a way for friends and family to show their support and team spirit, it has also become a new avenue for scammers. The risks come mainly from Twitter, where schools can post links to streaming sports games.

Scammers will post fake links to streaming services that ask people to provide sensitive information — like social security numbers and credit card information — to watch the game.

It is easy for potential victims to start clicking on these fake streaming links as many of them will mark school names. However, the links never lead to the games, and consumers are forced to pay before realizing they won’t be able to access a streaming site. Additionally, any information provided on these sites can be compromised and used for future scams.

How to avoid these scams

With the start of the new school year and the fall sports season starting, it is important that everyone be vigilant against these scams. The Better Business Bureau urges consumers to be mindful when streaming games online.

The best way to avoid these scams is to check with your specific school whether the games will be streamed or not and what is the best way to access the stream. Twitter accounts that have few follower counts or only post links to streaming sites are also red flags to watch out for.

Taking a few extra minutes to research the site before clicking on it can be time consuming, but it’s worth it to protect consumers’ identity and personal information.

Consumers can monitor active scams and report scams through the Better Business Bureau here.

Ransomware concerns grow – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Created: August 29, 2022 07:55

Cyber ​​risk: A typical data breach would cost the average organization $2.4 million to investigate and recover (file image)

According to a new report, 81% of companies surveyed have a ransomware coverage limit of less than $600,000, which is lower than the median ransomware claim last year.

BlackBerry Limited and Corvus Insurance released the BlackBerry Cyber ​​Insurance Coverage study, showing companies are increasingly concerned about how they will respond to ransomware claims.

Only 19% of respondents have ransomware coverage above $600,000, while 59% of companies hoped the government would cover damages when future attacks are tied to other nation states.

The report says small and medium-sized businesses, a favorite target of criminals, are particularly feeling the heat.

Among companies with less than 1,500 employees, only 14% have a coverage limit above $600,000.

A recent Forrester report estimated that a typical data breach would cost the average organization $2.4 million to investigate and recover.

Unsurprisingly, according to the report, 50% of SMBs surveyed hoped the government would increase financial assistance in all ransomware incidents.

Shishir Singh, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Cybersecurity at BlackBerry, said, “Not only are there more ransomware threats than ever, but the criminals are more ruthless. They will iterate threats and wait patiently in order to extract maximum damage.

“For uninsured and underinsured organizations, this potentially puts them at extreme risk. The cyber underground is increasingly sharing learning and partnerships to make threats as effective as possible.

“It’s critical that organizations strengthen their security against these threats by complementing assurance with a prevention-focused software approach that reduces their overall risk.”

The report indicates that many companies have reported cybersecurity coverages that are ill-suited to their current situation.

More than a third (37%) of respondents are currently not covered for any ransomware payment claims, while 43% are not covered for ancillary costs such as legal costs or employee downtime .

At the same time, according to the report, cyber insurance has become more difficult to obtain, due to the increase in software requirements imposed by insurance brokers.

More than a third (34%) of respondents were denied coverage because they did not meet specific endpoint detection and response software requirements. These increased requirements, however, can have a real impact on reducing ransom payments.

Vincent Weafer, CTO at Corvus, said, “While it may seem counter-intuitive, continuing to meet software requirements is one of the best ways to fight the ransomware industry.

“In our wallet alone, we have seen a 50% reduction in the ratio of ransom demands that end up being paid. Better software adoption is a critical part of better positioning organizations to resist attackers. »

BlackBerry commissioned Team Lewis Research to conduct an online survey of 450 business decision makers for IT/security solutions in the United States and Canada. The fieldwork took place from 15 to 22 July.

Sports games expected to come to Nintendo Switch Online after Wave Race 64

By Sports games

The August addition of Wave Race 64 at Nintendo Switch OnlineThe growing library of retro games is welcome.

There are a plethora of other classic sports titles gamers would love to join Wave Race 64 In the coming months. From American football to wrestling, Nintendo has enjoyed a fruitful relationship with sports titles over the years, and it’s hopefully only a matter of time before some of these retro classics are added to the library. of content available to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, and its expansion pack.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

NHL 99

Ice hockey games aren’t an incredibly popular genre outside of North America, and aside from hardcore hockey fans, most gamers are oblivious to the fact that they even exist today, although developer EA always releases new titles annually, the latest of which is next NHL 23. In 1998 however, when NHL 99 released for the N64, it managed to appeal to a wider audience with engaging gameplay that didn’t take itself too seriously. Combined with an arcade-style feel, the game got an impressive visual upgrade from its predecessor, and still plays well today for those lucky enough to own a copy.


Madden NFL 99

Madden NFL 99 represented a significant development for the franchise as the first game in the series to feature the now-standard Franchise Mode. It was a huge draw for NFL fans and ensured the popularity of the series. In addition to this improvement, Madden NFL 99 looked good, and the gameplay offered an experience that balanced realism with a slight arcade feel, satisfying fans on both sides.

wwf no mercy

When wwf no mercy came out for N64 in 2000, at the height of WWE’s popularity, he quickly created a cult following. Following WWF Wrestle Mania 2000 came with a host of upgrades over its predecessor, including new game modes and an increased roster of superstars including Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock. N64 and publisher THQ had already established a reputation for producing high-quality wrestling games from WCW vs. NWO: World Tourand Without mercy was the culmination. Despite the game’s blocky graphics, thanks to gameplay that remains incredibly intuitive and balanced even by today’s standards, it’s considered by many to be one of the best wrestling games ever made.


2000 All Star Baseball

2000 All Star Baseball represented a real breakthrough for baseball games when it was released on N64. It was one of the console’s best-looking games, using every ounce of the N64’s graphics capability. The gameplay was also innovative, allowing players to control the direction in which they hit the ball. Baseball isn’t brimming with new titles these days, despite Konami working on a new game with the World Baseball and Softball Confederation. Despite this however, 2000 All Star Baseball represents one of the highlights of baseball games from this period and would be a valuable addition to the expansion pack library.


1080 Snowboarding

A classic sports title that is often overlooked is 1080 Snowboarding, which was released as an N64 exclusive in 1998. Focusing on high-octane, adrenaline-fueled snowboard racing, it’s a combination of speed and finesse, as players are tasked with completing races as well as to perform stunts and tricks successfully. The game has a fairly steep difficulty curve that may put some people off, but mastering it gives a great sense of satisfaction. Although it has enjoyed a re-release for the Wii U eShop in recent years, 1080 Snowboarding has yet to surface for the Switch, but including it in the expansion pack would change that.


These are just a handful of the huge catalog of sports titles released on Nintendo consoles over the years, and there are no doubt many more that would be great additions to the expansion pack. Nintendo Switch line. Time will tell which, if any, will join Wave Race 64 in Nintendo Switch Onlineallowing players to discover them again.

The consequences of technological advances in gaming

By Sports games

Online gambling is a growing industry, with a worldwide estimate of over 4 billion people. This means that the tendency to play video games online rather than with friends or family is becoming the norm.

Online games have some drawbacks that you should be aware of before signing up for a virtual hangout. Online games have been proven to have several negative effects on a person’s mental health, social life, and general well-being.

Social anxiety in online games

Social anxiety is a very common condition and is experienced by many people in their lives. A person with social anxiety disorder may have difficulty participating in daily activities, including going to work, maintaining friendships, romantic relationships, or enjoying recreational activities.

In a study of 6,000 Chinese teenagers aged 11 to 19, researchers found that teenagers with social anxiety were more likely to play massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs or MMOs) than teenagers without anxiety. social. They also found that teens with social anxiety were more likely to show signs of MMO addiction than teens without social anxiety.

Overuse and addiction

The WHO and the American Psychiatric Association (APA) have identified gambling disorder as an emerging mental health problem that deserves more research and attention in the medical field. People with gaming disorders spend many hours each week playing video games, often to the extent that their physical health, mental health, social life, and academic achievement are negatively affected.

Gaming disorder may be a symptom of another underlying condition, such as anxiety or depression. If you or someone you know is showing signs of a gambling disorder, it’s important to seek help from a mental health professional. The earlier treatment is sought, the better the chances of complete recovery.

Online gambling loneliness

Many social media sites market themselves as places for gamers to connect, but many people who play games online report feeling more lonely rather than less lonely. There have been over 100 studies on loneliness, and they all show that there are serious health risks.

People who feel isolated are at higher risk for depression, obesity, heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. A study found that people who felt lonely while playing online games developed higher levels of social anxiety and less self-compassion.

Research found that people who played games online had higher levels of isolation than people who played games face-to-face. When gamers play online, they play with strangers, which makes them vulnerable to cyberbullying and other negative experiences.

Lack of physical activity

While social-style games are a great way for people to connect, many of these titles require very little physical movement. Users miss out on social interactions that would often include physical activities such as playing sports or playing games in person.

Virtual reality games can be great for keeping in touch with friends, family, and co-workers, but they also make it easier to passively observe others without engaging in conversation or physical movement. They’re a great resource for people who want to explore new hobbies or activities, but might not be the best way to meet in person.

Other types of gambling addiction

Internet gaming disorder (IGD) is a pattern of excessive Internet use that is unrelated to work or education, resulting in an inability to carry out daily responsibilities. This condition is characterized by persistent, recurrent, and self-destructive behavior (also known as rage abandonment).

Internet gaming disorder involves maladaptive behaviors that are often used as a coping mechanism to deal with negative feelings. Many people are at risk of developing hard-to-treat IGD depending on the length of use.

Conclusion

Online gambling is a popular activity, but it has its drawbacks. These include social anxiety, loneliness, lack of physical activity, and other types of addiction. The solution to these disadvantages is simple: balance. Knowing what’s important is part of maturing, so play slot machine games once in a while won’t hurt as long as you don’t forget about the outside world.

Spending time in nature, playing with friends and family, and pursuing hobbies that don’t involve technology are imperative. If you engage in online gaming or any other activity that could harm you, take the time to take a step back and re-evaluate your daily routine.

The teams will play three ODIs in seven days starting on Sunday, with the remaining two games in the series scheduled for Wednesday and next Saturday in the tropical town of Townsville in north Queensland. The venue for the day’s matches will be the 10,000-seat Riverway Stadium.

Australian all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne expects the spin to play a big role in matches. He played three times at the stadium and the right-hander scored 337 runs at an average of 84.25 over five innings.

“The pitch is great. I don’t think I’ve lost here yet, I’ve got three wins from three games,” Labuschagne told the Cricket Australia website when the series kicked off. “We (Queensland State) played here last year and the track was pretty good. It came a bit early, but it was actually very good for spinners. Australia have two spinners in their squad, with Ashton Agar returning from a side injury he suffered in Sri Lanka and Adam Zampa returning to the team following the birth of his first child, Eugene. Captain Aaron Finch named a near full-strength squad on Saturday, Finch also confirmed a reshuffle of Australia’s ODI batting line-up with wicketkeeper Alex Carey elevated to No 4, with Steve Smith in the No 3 position and Mitch Marsh slipping from three to five.

Zimbabwe, who last played an ODI in Australia as part of a tri-series with India more than 18 years ago, have a number of options with spin, with the versatile Sikandar Raza , Sean Williams, Tony Munyonga and Ryan Burl likely to complement front row fast bowlers’ efforts.

Sunday’s match will be the first of 17 one-day internationals for Australia ahead of the 2023 ODI World Cup in India.

___ Lineup: Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), David Warner, Steve Smith, Alex Carey, Mitchell Marsh, Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Cameron Green, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.

Parents can also purchase digital tickets for grandparents and loved ones who wish to attend. Tickets can then be transferred to grandparents/parents via text or email or you can meet them at the entrance, show the digital ticket and enter together.

Plus, all children six and under will be admitted free.

Digital tickets will be available for purchase a few days before game day.

According to a report by ESPNcricinfo, the decision to part ways with Kumble was made by a board comprised of multiple owners, including Bollywood actor Preity Zinta, industrialists Mohit Burman, Ness Wadia and Karan Paul, and CEO of the Satish Menon team.

Reports: Iran allows women to attend Tehran football match

By Sports games

In a rare move, Iranian authorities allowed women to attend a soccer match at Tehran’s Azadi Stadium in the Iranian capital on Thursday evening, local media reported. Videos posted on social media show women inside the stadium as the domestic league match between Esteghlal FC, Iran’s second most popular team, and Mes-e Kerman kicks off.

Women have been mostly banned from attending men’s games and other sporting events in Iran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

FIFA has long called on Iran to guarantee that women will be allowed to attend the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

In 2019 and for the first time in decades, for the Asian Champions League final, hundreds of Iranian women were allowed to watch Persepolis take on Japan’s Kashima Antlers in Tehran.

In January, more than 2,000 female spectators at Azadi Stadium watched the Iranian national football team defeat Iraq in Group A of Asian teams, qualifying for Iran’s third consecutive World Cup. It was the second major football event Iranian women watched at the stadium.

However, in March, Iranian authorities barred women from attending the country’s final 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier between Iran and Lebanon in the holy city of Mashhad. At the time, Iranian media claimed that 12,500 tickets had been sold online, including 2,000 reserved for women. But Ahmad Alamolhoda, an influential Friday prayer leader in Mashhad who was appointed by the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said he was against the presence of women as spectators in sports competitions. masculine, calling it “vulgarity”.

By Sports games

England midfielder Jill Scott has announced her retirement from football, the second member of the Euro 2022 winning squad to do so in two days.

Scott, 35,’s decision comes after Ellen White, the team’s leading scorer, said on Monday she was retiring. Scott and White both appeared in the final of the Women’s European Championship on July 31, when England beat Germany 2-1 after extra time.

Scott made his England debut in 2006 and had a total of 161 international appearances – just behind Fara Williams with 172 – and scored 27 goals for the national team.

She had been without a club after leaving Manchester City at the end of last season.

We had too much fun to have tears,” Scott wrote on The Players’ Tribune. “Maybe it’s because I come from Sunderland, but two things have always been true about me: I’ve always been stubborn and I’ve always loved football.

“It’s been in my blood since I was five. I saw a bunch of boys playing in the school yard and walked right up to them and said the four magic words. . Can I play too?”. Imagine if you had told me then that I would continue to play for England for 16 years? “If you had told me that I would live to see 90,000 people packed into Wembley Stadium for a European women’s final? And that I would play in it? Impossible.” Scott started her career with her hometown of Sunderland before spending seven years at Everton and then joining City in 2013. She was then loaned out to Everton and Aston Villa. She won all national honors during her time in the game, including the Women’s Championship. Super League title with City in 2017.

William, who is President of the Football Association, wrote in a personal tweet: “A pioneer in women’s football and a great team player. @JillScottJS8 congratulations on a wonderful career, it was a pleasure to know you.

“A wee bit glad there’s no more sliding tackles during friendly kickabouts…W.” William presented members of the England squad with their medals after the Euro 2022 final.

National Gas Prices Drop 5 Cents – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

washington d.c.. – Stable global oil prices and modest domestic demand for gasoline pushed prices at the pump down a nickel last week to $3.90.

“Drivers are now enjoying gas prices that are $1.11 lower than their peak in mid-June,” said AAA spokesman Andrew Gross. “But now we need to keep an eye on the weather as hurricane season approaches. These storms can affect prices by disrupting oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and impacting large coastal refineries.




AAA finds that drivers are making significant changes to deal with high prices at the pump. In a recent investigation, nearly two-thirds of American adults say they have changed their driving habits or lifestyle since March. The two main driver changes to offset high gas prices are to drive less and to combine errands.

According to data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA), gas demand increased slightly from 9.12 million bpd to 9.35 million bpd last week, which is almost identical to the same period last year. Total domestic gasoline inventories fell nearly 5 million barrels to 215.7 million barrels.

Although demand for gasoline has increased and supply has tightened, lower oil prices have helped lower prices at the pump. If oil prices drop slightly, drivers will likely continue to see pump prices fall.

The current national average of $3.90 is 51 cents lower than a month ago, but 74 cents higher than a year ago.

National Gas Price Comparison 2018-2021 8-22-22Quick Stats

Top 10 weekly declines nationwide: Florida (?12 cents), West Virginia (?11 ​​cents), Maine (?11 ​​cents), New Jersey (?11 ​​cents), Rhode Island (? 11 cents), Vermont (?11 ​​cents), Massachusetts (?11 ​​cents), Wyoming (?10 cents), Connecticut (?10 cents) and Mississippi (?10 cents).

The 10 cheapest markets in the country: Arkansas ($3.41), Mississippi ($3.43), Georgia ($3.43), Texas ($3.44), Tennessee ($3.44), Louisiana ($3.46), South Carolina ($3.46), Missouri ($3.47), Alabama ($3.47), and Kansas ($3.48).


Oil market dynamics

At the close of Friday’s official trading session, WTI was up 27 cents to settle at $90.77. Although crude prices rose at the end of the week due to the EIA report that total domestic crude supply fell by 7 million barrels to 425 million barrels, crude prices declined earlier in the week after US housing data showed residential construction fell to a 1.5 low. years in July.

Rising mortgage rates, combined with rising material costs, played a role in lowering demand for new homes. Falling demand for housing has also pushed oil demand expectations down. If crude demand expectations remain weak this week, crude prices could decline further.

Music and sports: why cover both?

By Sports website
Credit: NBC Los Angeles

At first, it might seem out of place for a sports website to venture out and cover music. You may be see us on Twitter and asking yourself “why are they talking about a musical artist?” The answer is simple. When you really think about it, music is an integral part of the fabric of sport.

Whether it’s a high school marching band, college fight songs and buzz songs, baseball or wrestling entrance music, or the AP playing heavy metal – or symphonic deathcore, to be precise – at a hockey game, music is everywhere in the sport.

The intersection of sport and music

So why should you go to one place for your sports coverage and then go to a specific music website to read album reviews? Why should you come to us to find out what’s going on at training camp, then head to an entirely different site to see a band’s entire discography ranked from worst to first?

You should not ! And that’s the ultimate goal here at Around the Block Network. We want to be your one-stop entertainment center! We want to be at the intersection of sport and music.

That’s why you’re going to see someone tweeting about the Giants and their local Baltimore teams talking about a hot new artist they like. That’s why you’re going to find two Dolphins fans and one Lions fan promoting a heavy metal-focused podcast. Because at the end of the day, we all love sports and we all love music. So why shouldn’t you be able to get reviews and opinions on both in one place?

It may seem strange at first, but should it? We’d say it shouldn’t be, and we hope you agree! Who knows, maybe one day in the future this will become normal and normal content strategy for the course. For now, ATB is here to give you the latest news on all your passions. Stay tuned and enjoy the ride!

Minnesota Twins Launches First Shared AR App for Live Sports That Opens Door to Land Grab Sponsorship

By Sports app

He flew largely under the radar on Monday when the Minnesota Twins announced they had launched AR
AR
ound – believed to be the first shared augmented reality app for live sports – for use at Target Field. Although a first, the pilot application could open the door to either traditional value-added sponsorship deals or new sponsors. If the app gains traction, it could create a land rush not just for the other 29 Major League Baseball clubs, but for the entire sports real estate landscape.

ARound is part of Stagwell, a publicly traded tech company, which will allow fans to point their phones at Target Field during lulls in the action and play games with others at the stadium. Aimed largely at younger audiences, the concept isn’t too dissimilar to the augmented reality games you might have seen in theaters ahead of previews as part of Noovie. The difference here is that it’s not a single user, but multiple users in Target Field. Apps that will be made available include BatterUp, Blockbuster, which the Twins and developers showed me as users throwing digital objects at towers and knocking them over, and a game called Fishing Frenzy. Josh Beatty, ARound’s Founder and CEO, along with Chris Iles, The Twins’ Senior Director of Brand Experience and Innovation, told me about the rollout that’s been underway for just over a year.

“What I think Josh has built has real power and real legs because he’s able to be aware of everyone around you using the app at the same time, creating a shared experience and creating context around an event that frankly has never been done before,” Ilse said. So it got me and the Twins excited like it had never been done before.

Beatty informed that no user data is collected. No one goes through a registration process to use the app. And that the infrastructure is large enough to support tens of thousands of users.

What makes you think? Besides entertaining kids with games and keeping them seated, what other value does the app have from a business perspective?

On the one hand, the idea that other types of use cases could be created within the platform. Both Iles and Beatty mentioned that it’s possible to create an experience where player stats could hover over a player in real time or other ways to engage the dedicated baseball fan in attendance.

But what seems most intriguing from a business perspective is that while the initial rollout is designed as just gameplay for a younger demo, it’s quite capable of getting games stripped down. in a way that monetizes it.

Ilse and the twins see the platform as a way to connect more closely with people and places. “One thing we realized is that you kind of have to have a large audience for that to happen,” Iles said, adding that the Twins were receptive from the first conversation, understanding that he is a technology that has its place as added value. to the baseball stadium experience.

“To the teams, the fans and the sponsors,” he adds to Sports Entertainment.

This is where Twins can touch on something that’s more than just an addition to the gaming experience, but opens up new avenues to the bottom line: sponsors.

The initial rollout is not associated with any sponsor, but Beatty said the design of the apps for the Twins took this into account.

“I would say [the platform] is tailor-made for sponsorship,” Iles said. “We are launching this sponsor agnostic because we want to have a clean test of the technology to see how fans interact with it. is and let potential sponsors see it the same way. So we have to prove this thing. But we think it will work well for our sponsors.

It’s likely that an AR app shared at the ballpark won’t yield huge returns in the sponsorship space initially. But it largely depends on other applications that will be developed in the future. It either becomes an additional way to activate the sponsorship as part of a larger transaction for a client or attracts new sponsors. Either way, the Twins are enjoying an untapped revenue stream.

For Stagwell, technology is not limited to the ballpark. After all, games can be watched via traditional television and streaming.

“Not only are we looking to improve the in-stadium experience, but through our technology we can also connect it to the home viewer,” said Sarah Arvizo of Stagwell. “We can bring everything that happens with the AR platform in the stadium to their coffee table. And so while they’re watching a game, they can have that energy and that excitement that’s in the stadium, but take that with them wherever they go.

“When she came back from the hospital last week, she said, I’m so happy to be home, I can’t think of any place I’d rather be. We are so happy to have him back with us.

Russian oil company Lukoil acquires Spartak Moscow football club

By Sports games

Russian oil company Lukoil said on Monday it had bought Russian Premier League club Spartak Moscow, along with the Moscow stadium where it plays its home games.

Spartak is reeling from financial problems following Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, which prompted a series of Western sanctions against Moscow and further isolated Russian business. Lukoil, who had been Spartak’s general sponsor for more than two decades, said his acquisition of a 100 per cent stake in the club meant longtime owner and chairman Leonid Fedun would step down from all managerial roles.

Fedun resigned as deputy chairman of Lukoil in June. The billionaire bought the club in 2004 when it was in serious financial difficulty. “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my friends and colleagues at Lukoil for agreeing to support such an important social project as Spartak in this most difficult situation,” Fedun said in a statement posted on the club’s website.

In May, Nike terminated its sponsorship deal with 10-time Russian Premier League champions Spartak as they will not feature in European competitions next season due to Russia’s actions in Ukraine. Spartak Moscow also disbanded their second-tier team, citing financial difficulties and the need to cut their budget.

Mbappé scores in 8 seconds and equalizes the French championship record

By Sports games

Kylian Mbappe scored after just eight seconds to score the fastest goal in French league history. Mbappe found the net at the start of a 7-1 victory for defending champions Paris Saint-Germain against Lille on Sunday. The visitors needed just four passes from kick-off to score as Lionel Messi flicked a superb ball over Mbappe, who cleverly lobbed Lille goalkeeper Leo Jardim. PSG coach Christophe Galtier paid tribute to his coaching staff and the club’s Under-19 squad. From the kick-off, Neymar returned the ball before receiving it again and passing it to Messi, who spotted Mbappe’s run and had the technical genius to exploit it.

“Our U19 team did it in the youth league against Salzburg,” Galtier told a press conference. “We showed it to the players. They were OK to try it. So we worked on it in training and it was executed really well tonight. The French league tweeted that Mbappe’s goal equaled midfielder Michel Rio who also needed just eight seconds to score for Caen against Cannes in 1992. French sports newspaper L’Equipe was more cautious, the qualifying as the fastest goal since Rio’s with Mbappe’s goal closer than nine seconds, he said. The French league started in 1932. Galtier was referring to Edouard Michut’s goal in a 3-1 loss to Salzburg in the youth league in March. Michut needed 11 seconds to score according to PSG’s official website. The French coach also said his team had studied similar kick-off routines in the German, English and Spanish leagues, mentioning Bournemouth and Rayo Vallecano as teams that had scored such goals. Mbappe netted a hat-trick while Neymar netted twice and provided three assists against Lille as PSG extended their perfect start to the season with three wins from three games.

Gokulam Kerala not taking part in AFC Women’s Club Championships

By Sports games

A ‘distraught’ Gokulam Kerala women’s team will return home from Uzbekistan on Monday after being withdrawn from the AFC Women’s Club Championship following FIFA’s ban on India.

The 23-member team, led by India’s captain Ashalata Devi, has been stuck in Tashkent for six days since arriving in the Uzbek capital on August 16, the day news of the ban imposed on the AIFF by the world governing body FIFA has reached India. .

Indian Women’s League champions Gokulam was due to face local side Sogdiana-W in Qarshi on August 23 and Iran’s Bam Khatoon FC in their next round robin match on August 26.

”Yes, it’s confirmed. We have been told by the Ministry of Sports that their request to FIFA and the AFC to allow us to play in the AFC Women’s Club Championships has been denied. So we don’t play. The organizers also told us that we couldn’t play,’ Gokulam Kerala chairman VC Praveen told PTI.

”We were trying to fly the players home on Sunday but there is no flight from Tashkent to India. The first flight is Monday, so we try to get the players home on Monday or Tuesday,’ he added.

“Of course, the players are upset by the turn of events and they had to suffer through no fault of their own. The club must have suffered.” Praveen said the AFC should have allowed his club to participate in the Championships as the players left for the tournament before the ban came into effect.

”We didn’t know about the ban before leaving Kozhikode, we only learned about the ban from AIFF after we reached Uzbekistan.

“FIFA and the AFC should have been considerate, either the ban should have been after these championships or we should have been allowed to participate in them.” He said the club would ask the AFC to compensate the money spent on the players. ‘ travel and accommodation, which will cost hundreds of thousands of rupees.

”The AFC normally reimburses expensive airfare, travel and accommodation for its tournaments. So we’ll make a request to the AFC and see what happens.” The club had made a request to the sports ministry and also wrote to the prime minister for help.

The AFC has also removed Gokulam Kerala’s scheduled matches which previously featured on its website.

Indian Olympic football star captain Samar ‘Badru’ Banerjee dies

By Sports games

Former Indian football team captain Samar ‘Badru’ Banerjee, who led the country to a historic fourth place finish at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, died here in the early hours of Saturday after a long illness.

He was 92 years old. Banerjee is survived by his daughter-in-law.

Affectionately known as ‘Badru Da’, he suffered from Alzheimer’s, Azotemia and high blood pressure related diseases, and was admitted to MR Bangur Hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 on July 27.

“As his health deteriorated, he was transferred to the state-run SSKM Hospital under the supervision of State Sports Minister Arup Biswas. He breathed his last around 2:10 a.m.,’ Mohun Bagan secretary Debasish Dutta told PTI.

“He was our beloved ‘Badru Da’ and we granted him the Mohun Bagan Ratna in 2009. This is another great loss for the Maidan,” he added in his condolence message.

His body was brought to the club as members and fans paid their last respects.

Indian football teams have participated in three Olympics so far and so far the performance of the team led by Banerjee in 1956 remains the best, when they finished fourth after losing to Bulgaria 0- 3 in the bronze medal play-off, in what was known as the “golden age” of football in the country.

Having secured a first round win, the team coached by Syed Abdul Rahim who also had PK Banerjee, Neville D’Souza and J ‘Kittu’ Krishnaswamy, beat Australia 4-2. D’Souza scored a hat-trick in his glorious victory.

But the team failed to qualify for the final, losing 1-4 to Yugoslavia in the last four.

The Indian Football Federation (AIFF) has expressed its condolences over the passing of the famous player. ”It’s sad to hear that Badru-da, one of India’s greatest footballers, is no more. His contribution to Indian football will never be forgotten. I share the grief,” AIFF Acting General Secretary Sunando Dhar said. ”He will remain synonymous with the golden generation of Indian football. Badru-da, you will live on in our hearts,” Dhar added in a statement.

As a sign of respect, a minute’s silence will be observed during the Durand Cup matches in Imphal and Calcutta on Saturday. As well as guiding Mohun Bagan to several trophies including their first ever Durand Cup (1953), Rovers Cup (1955), Banerjee also won the Santosh Trophy twice as a player (1953, 1955) and once as a player. coach (1962). He also served India as a coach.

With his demise, Maidan lost another great footballer after PK, Chuni Goswami, Subhas Bhowmick and Surajit Sengupta in less than three years.

Born on January 30, 1930, Banerjee’s footballing journey began with some local Bally clubs while he was in school.

His father, Sasanka Sekhar Banerjee, was a strict disciplinarian and wanted him to become a doctor, enrolling him in RG Kar Medical College.

”My father was very strict. He would scold me a lot for ignoring my studies,” Banerjee said in an interview on the Mariners website after receiving the “Mohun Bagan Ratna.”

“But, despite that, I would go there and listen to the elders talk about Mohun Bagan, East Bengal, Mohammedan Sporting and various other clubs in Maidan. I’ve been pushed back several times, but my attention will always be there,” he added.

At a time when there was little incentive for a sportsman, an 18-year-old Banerjee chose to become a footballer and went on to represent Bally Protiva, a Calcutta Football League Third Division club.

After impressing with his skills, there was no turning back as he was roped in by Bengal Nagpur Railway, better known as BNR, the breeding ground for state football at the time, before to continue to make his mark at Mohun Bagan for an excellent eight-year period. There he had formed a deadly combination up front with Kesto Pal.

Banerjee won the IFA Shield in his first season with the Green and Brown Brigade in a controversial final against Rajasthan Club.

He then guided the club to their first-ever Durand Cup next season, with his key strikes in the semi-finals and final.

Banerjee grabbed the Maidan spotlight again in 1954 when they secured another first, a double with the CFL and IFA Shield titles, as he cemented his place in the Indian side under manager from coach Rahim.

In the meantime, he also toured with the club in East Africa, with PK.

In 1958 he was made captain of Mohun Bagan, ironically coinciding with the club’s downward spiral, after finishing runners-up in the CFL, Shield and Rovers Cup.

Oak Cliff leaders discuss violence at youth sporting events

By Sports events

Panelists discussed how coaches and organizations can get along better with conflict resolution alternatives.

DALLAS — Local leaders, coaches and parents gathered in Oak Cliff on Saturday to talk about the issues plaguing youth sports in North Texas and how to prevent violence from happening on and off the field.

The rally comes a week after a shooting at a Lancaster youth football game left coach Mike Hickmon dead.

According to the arrest affidavit, police say it started with an argument over the score of the game.

Saturday’s town hall was called “Call to Action” and had a panel made up of local leaders from many different fields and organizations. The panel discussed how coaches and organizations can get along better with conflict resolution alternatives. Parents also had time to ask questions to the panel.

Panelist Karen Reese created a sports talk show titled “Can we talkwhich is hosted by moms of athletes. She said the first type of action that should be taken is to involve parenting more at home.

“Parents choose which team, which sport, which coach teaches our children,” Reese said. “I think as parents we need to take a more active role in who we allow to mentor and teach our children.”

Panelist Kevin Bennett has been a registered football referee for nine years. He said there needs to be more respect for each other at all levels. Panelist Tony X, who said he was a former inmate, echoed Bennet’s message.

“Love is a verb that shows action,” said Tony X. “When we love our children and when we love our community, then we can do better for ourselves, our people and our community. Look at the beyond yourself and think of your brother and sister.”

Community leader and panelist Terrence Randolph said there should be no tobacco or alcohol at any of these games. He also said there needed to be more police presence and more protective measures taken.

“We need more security,” Randolph said. “Metal detectors. Of course we need police officers to patrol the matches and not just to attend the matches.”

Panelist Gary Cochran leads a ministry called “Cover Dallas with loveHe focused more on the need for different groups and organizations to build better relationships with each other before tragedies occur.

“Show up and be present,” Cochran said. “It’s so that we can build relationships and learn and grow together. We can do that. But also when bad things happen or tragedy happens, we don’t show up as strangers. We show up like friends, sisters and brothers, people who already know each other, and connect together.

Panelist Raymond Alford is the owner of the Big 12 Youth Sports League, which the organization says provides a college experience for teams, coaches, and players. He said he had spoken with league officials and that the rules and laws on school grounds and on football pitches needed to be better understood and enforced.

“So if I know you’re not allowed to have your gun on school property, I don’t care if you have a permit or not — you have to go,” Alford said, as a ‘example. “I’m going to go find an officer. We want to give our kids a safe place. We want to give them a safe environment. When people bring street environments into what’s supposed to be a safe place for kids, they don’t don’t need to be part of what we do.”

Many panelists brought up the idea of ​​creating a coalition of local youth leaders from different sports and organizations.

Panelist Tabitha Wheeler-Reagan, who leads the nonprofit Village Bridge Centersaid that once parents and local leaders can figure out what it would look like and who would be involved, she wants to take it to the Dallas City Council and have them formally endorse the coalition.

“We can’t wait any longer for something tragic to happen,” Wheeler-Reagan said. “The tragedy is every time there is something impure around our children. Our children lead by example. We are responsible for every child we come into contact with.”

After further questions from parents, panelist Terry Mayo X, who is a former professional baseball and football player, said he would like this potential coalition to start organizing events and gatherings for young athletes in the city are spending more time together off the pitch. so that they bond beyond the teammates of each player’s respective team.

“What if we were to come together and collaborate with different events and different organizations in the different leagues?” said Terry Mayo X. “With different organizations that are not like you so that we can do more things together. It’s because unity is more powerful than anything in this world. It’s more powerful than the atomic bomb itself. So if we were to come together and unify more knowing just because your logo or your name is different, we are still playing on the same team. We are playing on the same team of life.

The Left’s Battle to Erase Women – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Written by Marsha Blackburn
US Senator

washington d.c. – Democrats have long buzzed with demands for follow the science, but the recent left-wing campaign for “gender justice” rejects basic biology. Instead of finding ways to ensure equal opportunities for men and women, their agenda arms the women’s rights movement versus women.

In women’s sports, athletes of all levels have all been forced to compete one-on-one with biological men. Swimmer Riley Gaines shared her frustration with me after running against bio-man Lia Thomas at the NCAA Championships – a competition reserved for the top 1% of college swimmers. skateboarder Taylor Silverman underwent a similar experience, consistently placing second to men competing in women’s events.




In athletics, ignoring the biological differences between the sexes disadvantages women and undermines any hope of fair competition. What is happening in women’s sport is just one example of the years-long battle to erase women.

I saw how invested Democrats are in this fight just a few months ago when I asked Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson a simple question – “Can you give a definition of the word ‘woman?’ » Liberal media and party activists erupted; they claimed that even asking the question was insensitive and transphobic. These insults could not divert attention from the refusal of the left to admit a fact of fundamental biology.

They can’t face the science because they know it’s in direct contrast to what they’ve been asking for for years. In 2015, the Atlantic said the schools the new “zero pointfor the gender debate – and they were absolutely right. What started out as accepting students’ favorite pronouns quickly morphed into letting men use the women’s bathroom. The movement has since expanded by sending biological men into women’s locker rooms and onto women’s sports teams.

As students return to class and team tryouts begin, parents worry about what the ‘gender justice’ movement could mean for their own children. In the Senate, I joined my colleagues to lead the Protection of Women and Girls in Sport Act that will require schools to apply Title IX based on biological sex, not gender identity.

I also released a back to school guide for moms and dads who push back against the woke agenda of the left. By running for school board elections, meeting coaches and talking with principals, parents can continue to fight for fairness for their little ones.

Democrats will continue to use “gender justice” to erect more barriers for women and erase gender altogether. In Tennessee, we are taking a stand. Through legislation and local activism, we will not stop fighting to ensure that our daughters and granddaughters have the equal opportunities they deserve.

Football-Brazil will face Ghana and Tunisia before the World Cup

By Sports games

The Brazilian Football Federation announced on Friday that the national team will face Ghana and Tunisia in September in preparation for the Qatar World Cup, with the players looking to secure their place in the 26-man squad that will take part in the tournament more late this year. The Brazilian federation, or CBF, said on its website that the matches will take place on September 23 and 27 at yet-to-be-announced venues in Europe.

Head coach Tite will announce his shortlist for the friendlies on September 9. Brazil top the FIFA World Rankings and are among the favorites to win the World Cup, which will be played in Qatar from November 20 to December 18.

Tite told Reuters last month he was excited about the rise of young players who shot to fame last season and will be available for the Qatar national team, easing the pressure on the Paris St-Germain superstar Neymar. Seeking to win a record sixth World Cup, Brazil are set to face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in Group G, which begins on November 24.

Ghana will meet South Korea, Portugal and Uruguay in Group H and could face Brazil in a possible Round of 16. Tunisia will be in Group D, facing Australia, Denmark and reigning world champions France.

A special evening – The Royal Gazette

By Sports events

Great wine from great grapes: Ed Sbragia, right, and his son Adam Sbragia at their family winery in the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma, Calif. (Photographs provided)

Three years is far too long without seeing your firstborn, young sons and their mother, but complications from Covid-19 and a passport that disappeared into the government’s jaws in March put me in that position. . On Sunday it was over and my wife cooked a lovely welcome meal which was served to our house.

We started the evening with a glass of 2021 Sasha Lichinthe pale Pink. In 2006, Sacha took over Château d’Esclans with the aim of creating some of the greatest wines in the world.

He revolutionizes the rosé of Provence and develops whispering angel in the trendiest Provençal pink. He turned to new areas with the pale. Made with grapes from the Vin de Pays Du Var region of Provence, this is a classic Mediterranean rosé with a twist.

It’s a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah, but from a region renowned for its excellent value for money. It’s deliciously dry and refreshing with bright red fruit flavors and a clean, crisp finish. Passionate about wine wrote the magazine, “bright and fruity, bubbling with pink fruit and fragrant acidity, this is an attractive, immediately drinkable wine.” $23.70 (stock no. 8113).

A beef tenderloin was on the BBQ and my son has often told me about the zinfandels he has enjoyed over the years. It seemed the most appropriate, and we were ready.

2012 Wild Hogge Moongate de Paso Robles was poured, and in January 2021 I wrote: “If you used the grape in Croatia, you would call it ‘tribidraq’ or ‘crljenak kastelanski’; in Italy the label read “primitivo” and in California “zinfandel”. Huw and Dale Morris call their blend of 75% zinfandel, 13% syrah and 12% cabernet franc, moongate, and we know that they do so because of their long association with Bermuda, they prefer to call the major grape variety primitivo.

Their website reads: “Primitivo, an Italian zinfandel, brings a unique taste of rich ripe fruit. The Cab Franc adds a little black pepper, and the spicy Syrah balances the richness of the primitivo. Aged in American oak barrels for two years and bottled for another two years, the wine has a powerful aroma of earth and dark berries. The palate has a rich texture and hints of blackberry jam. One hundred and seventy-seven cases were produced.

This wine, at ten years old, is at my optimum age, with some of the excitement of youth still there, but now showing what age can offer in tertiary flavors. $39.90 (stock no. 5967).

Although the bottle is not finished, we have opened a bottle of 2019 Dry Creek Heritage Vines Zinfandel just to compare young and then aged versions of this variety. The younger wine is 81% Zinfandel and 19% Petite Sirah. It’s still a favorite in our house and reviewer Jeb Dunnuck rates this vintage 92/100 as he comments: “Shown beautifully with a sheer, silky textured style along with classic plums and berries, hints of incense , pepper, and orange blossom. Drink this lovely, voluptuous beauty over the next five to seven years.” $32.95 (Stock No. 6507).

We could have opened 2017 Sbragia “Gino’s” Zinfandel which we keep on hand, and it would have evoked fond memories of our old friend Ed Sbragia and his family winery in the far north of Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. He started his own business after thirty-two years at the head of Beringer’s winemaking team.

This very special Zinfandel has been aged in new French oak barrels for 20 months, to help bring out its quintessential Dry Creek Zinfandel characteristics, which include bramble fruit aromas and intense flavors of blackberry and raspberry. .

Subtle floral, brown sugar and spice notes are apparent on the mid-palate while wonderful depth of flavor leads to a juicy finish. $42 (stock no. 6803).

I recently wrote about Bogle Old Vines Zinfandel 2019 so we won’t say much about sixty to eighty-year-old vines that add raspberries, peppercorns, juniper, dried herbs and vanilla to this wine aged for a year in American oak barrels. At $24.30, it’s the perfect accompaniment to burgers on the grill. (Stock #8042).

Let’s end this mainly zinfandel column with 2020 Orin Swift 8 years in the desert. You may be wondering how a wine can have such a name, so here is my take. Dave Finney, founder of Orin Swift, developed a uniquely named wine that became a big hit.

A large wine company came along and bought this brand for $285,000,000, but since the wine was made from Zinfandel, an agreement was signed that he would not work with this variety for eight years.

He wandered in this wasteland for the time it took and therefore gives us this blend of Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah.

The winery comments: “Our relationship with zinfandel goes back 20 years. Orin Swift Cellars started with two tons of Zinfandel in 1998 – perhaps the largest two tons we have ever purchased. Very often, you learn more from your failures than from your successes. What we learned from these two tons is that there is no miracle solution or alchemy once the grapes are in the vat room. You can only make great wine from great grapes. This truism applies to Zinfandel more than any other grape variety.”

This wine is bright purple in the glass and is the epitome of their style, the reason they are here in the first place.

Upon pouring, the aromas hit the nose squarely with a perception of sweetness: pure bramble raspberry juice and blueberry jams with a hint of white pepper and High Sierra forest floor.

Yet the sweetness perceived on the nose is just that – perceived – and does not carry over into the mouth. Lush and enveloping with a beam of acidity, notes of blackberry tart, plum and kirsch blossom. It ends with ultra-round tannins and lingering raspberry. $62.35 (Stock No. 6651).

Rest assured that any of these zinfandel-based wines will enhance meats cooked on the outdoor grill. Enjoy!

Soccer-Kobe embraced underdog status on their way to victory in Yokohama

By Sports games

Vissel Kobe coach Takayuki Yoshida says his players embraced their status as Asian Champions League underdogs en route to ousting J1 League leaders Yokohama F Marinos from the Continental Club Championship Thursday. Kobe struggled on the wrong end of the Japanese league standings for much of the season but put his poor form aside to hand Kevin Muscat’s Marinos a 3-2 defeat at Saitama Stadium to secure a place in Saturday’s quarter-final.

“We came here as underdogs, but I told the players that didn’t make it difficult,” Yoshida said. “It meant we had nothing to lose. The players showed that on the pitch and really challenged themselves in this game. From there, I think this game will help us in the two possible games left in this competition and later in the league.”

Kobe has struggled to consistently establish himself among the elite of Japanese and Asian football despite the money lavished on the club by Hiroshi Mikitani, owner of Japanese online retainer Rakuten, for nearly two decades. They are currently third from bottom in the J1 League and have only one trophy – the 2019 Emperor’s Cup – to their name despite regular top signings from Japan and abroad.

Spanish World Cup winner Andres Iniesta is Kobe’s best-known player, but as the 38-year-old’s fitness has become less reliable, injuries and poor form mean other players aren’t failed to lead the team. The constant changes on the touchline haven’t helped either, with Yoshida the club’s fourth manager since the start of the season in mid-February.

Despite these issues, Kobe seized the opportunity against Marinos to put in an effective performance that brought them closer to the Asian title. Kobe will be joined in the quarter-finals by two-time winners Jeonbuk Motors following their 2-1 extra-time win over fellow South Korean side Daegu FC.

Hong Kong’s Kitchee will face Thailand’s BG Pathum United and Japan’s Urawa Red Diamonds will meet Malaysian champions Johor Darul Ta’zim in the remaining round of 16 on Friday. “It was a tough game for 90 minutes, but we got this result because we played together offensively and defensively and worked hard,” Kobe captain Hotaru Yamaguchi said.

“It really helped us win this game.”

Sodexo live! seeks to expand site presence as Cheektowaga office becomes largest in US

At the height of the pandemic, when the sports hospitality market came to a standstill, Sodexo doubled down on its efforts in the event catering sector.

The company has rebranded its sports and leisure business as Sodexo Live! in September 2021, approximately four years after the purchase of major hospitality provider Centerplate. Even though the company’s hotel business fell by 90% about a year into the pandemic, Sodexo Live! was still hiring.

It was enough to convince Matthew Wagner to leave his position at competitor Delaware North during the pandemic in 2020 to lead Sodexo Live! as Senior Vice President of Business Development for North America.

“What intrigued me was that Sodexo, at the height of the pandemic – when most people were draining their resources and laying off because of the weather – was looking to hire and had a strategic growth mindset” , said Wagner, an East Aurora. resident who started his career in financial services.

It is in the Buffalo Niagara region that Sodexo has grown considerably. Buried in the back of an office park on Airborne Parkway in Cheektawaga is where the company has its largest North American presence.

Sodexo, a Fortune 100 company headquartered in Paris, had sales of more than $22 billion in the last fiscal year. It employs nearly 1,000 people in the Buffalo Niagara area, including 450 full-time employees in technology, accounting, finance and administration at the nearby Buffalo Niagara International Airport office. The company’s North America headquarters is outside of the Washington, DC area, but it’s only a fraction of the size of the Cheektowaga office.

Founded in 1966, Sodexo is a family business with founder Pierre Bellon’s daughter, Sophie, who now leads the company as global CEO and his other daughter Nathalie who takes the reins as global CEO of Sodexo Live!

About 60-65%, or $12 billion, of the company’s revenue in the last fiscal year came from North America, which is its biggest growth market. Sodexo live! is worth more than a billion dollars and is now in 250 theaters in North America.

Other parts of Sodexo’s hospitality business in universities, K-12 schools and in corporate services remained strong during the pandemic, helping to soften the blow to Sodexo Live!, Wagner said.

“Any growth aspirations we had have been abandoned because of the global situation,” he said. “But without a doubt, our business has come back strong. People want to come out and be part of the live entertainment and interact again.

Sodexo live! also serves convention and conference centers, airport lounges, cultural destinations and global events, such as the Super Bowl, WrestleMania, Formula 1 races and the Rugby World Cup. The company will also provide much of the athlete nutrition for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

The company has a long-standing relationship with M&T Bank, which dates back more than five decades. It is also the foodservice provider for the University at Buffalo, Seneca One Tower, Rich Products and Holiday Valley. Wagner sees growth opportunities with sports teams in Buffalo, Canalside, Outer Harbor and Niagara Falls.

Concessions to be won at the Bills’ new stadium

Delaware North has partnered with the Bills on their concession services since 1992, but the team has made it clear there will be a competitive process to select the food and beverage supplier for the new stadium, which is scheduled to open in the 2026 season.

As Delaware North plans to submit a proposal and “highly hopes to continue” its partnership with the Bills, according to a company spokesperson, the team’s desire for a taste of the scenery should spur sports hospitality providers and events to lick their chops.

Sodexo live! is one of the companies that has already said it plans to bid for concessions at the new Bills Stadium, which will be built opposite the current one on Abbott Road in Orchard Park.

Delaware North has also been a franchise partner of the Sabers since the team’s first year as a franchise in 1970.

Sodexo live! has managed franchises for 15 Super Bowls and is in a number of stadiums across North America, including Tim Hortons Field in southern Ontario, where the Legacy Classic between the Sabers and Maple Leafs took place. been played this year.

It’s also likely that Legends, which is already working with the Bills on marketing and data analytics for the new stadium, and other big hospitality players like Aramark, will bid for the new stadium concessions.

A donation page https://amypieters.nl/news/amy-to-daan-theeuwes-centrum was set up for Pieters after the accident, and the team added that the next stage of his recovery would allow Pieters to short periods of time at home.

“Think about a special bed, a chair and bed lift, a wheelchair. A wheelchair van is also provided,” a statement on its website reads. “It means Amy can be picked up and brought back on the weekends, she can sleep home and be cared for. With these tools, Amy can really be home on the weekends.”

It allows sports fans to stream live games via cable, satellite or streaming packages. One can easily access streaming services on platforms like Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, iOS, Android and the web.

But lately, many users (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, seven, 8) report an issue where the Bally Sports app crashes and freezes when streaming videos. We have added some reports below for reference:

It’s really hilarious how terrible an app is. They say they want to help so nothing ever changes 😂

Considering reports from affected users, the app is moving fast and freezing videos randomly intermittently.

In response, the Bally Sports support team apologized for the inconvenience which seemed rather robotic. But the team hasn’t officially addressed the issue.

The team is simply asking affected users to contact them via DM. You can view the report below:

Unfortunately, there is no workaround that can help temporarily fix the problem. This only adds to the level of frustration for those involved.

That said, users may have to wait a bit longer than expected until the team comes up with a fix for the Bally Sports app crashing and crashing issue.

By Sports games

There was palpable tension among top players as well as top ISL and I-League clubs following FIFA’s ban on Indian football due to ‘third party interference’ .

In accordance with Article 13 of the FIFA Statutes, the letter sent by the Secretary General of world football’s governing body, Fatma Samoura, states that “AIFF representatives and club teams are therefore no longer allowed to participate in international competition until the suspension is lifted.

“This also means that neither the AIFF nor any of its members or officials can benefit from development programs, courses or training from FIFA and/or the AFC.” senior men’s team in late 2023 or early 2024, some of the fixtures scheduled for age group clubs and national teams in the coming months could well be tricky ground. PTI looks at some of the upcoming missions under threat ————————– ——————– India Men’s National Team ———————— —— The two friendly internationals against Vietnam (September 24) and Singapore (September 27) will be canceled if the ban is not lifted at the earliest.

A few years ago, the Indian men’s team struggled to get quality matches in FIFA international friendlies, and much of the blame lay with the administration of the Indian Football Federation (AIFF ).

Things changed slightly after Croatian head coach Igor Stimac pushed for more friendlies, which his predecessors Stephen Constantine and Wim Koevermans lacked. The ban put the senior team back to square one.

Gokulam women wait anxiously in Uzbekistan —————————————— — —— Indian Women’s League champions Gokulam Kerala were due to open their AFC Women’s Club Championship campaign against local team Sogdiana-W in Qarshi, Uzbekistan on 23 august.

The Kozhikode-based side are next set to face Iran’s Bam Khatoon FC in their next round-robin match on August 26.

While the Supreme Court scheduled the case for an urgent hearing on Wednesday, it will be an anxious wait for the team that landed in Tashkent on Tuesday.

Gokulam Kerala had participated in the last edition of the continental pilot tournament last year and finished third in the four-team event.

Mohun Bagan’s September 7 AFC Cup inter-zone semi-finals under the clouds ————– ——- ——————————————- ——— ATK Mohun Bagan, one of India’s most beloved football clubs, were due to play their AFC Cup inter-zonal semi-finals on September 7, but a sudden A look at the AFC website will show that ATKMB’s name is not currently among the eight clubs in the play-offs.

The teams listed on the website are PSM Makassar, Kedah Darul Aman, Viettel FC, Kuala Lumpur City FC, Arabi SC, Al Seeb, East Riffa, Al Riffa.

India’s AFC U-20 Iraq Qualifiers start on September 14 ———————————- —- —————- India, who recently won the SAFF U-20 Cup under S Venkatesh, are due to play the AFC U-20 Qualifiers in Iraq.

India are clubbed in a very tough group with hosts Iraq, Australia and Kuwait.

The matches are scheduled for September 14 (Iraq), 16 (Australia) and 18 (Kuwait) respectively in the Iraqi city of Basra.

Could Lose Massive FIFA Subsidies —————————————— It is learned that FIFA has reportedly awarded grants to the tune of $3 million over the past three years.

This money is used by the AIFF for the development of grassroots football in the country. If the ban persists, each year AIFF stands to lose $500,000 in grants.

However, an AIFF insider said FIFA currently pays its member nations in kind – such as building astro-turf, providing footballs, shirts and other equipment – and not in cash.

All of this could be stopped.

Organizers cancel fireworks, festivals and sporting events due to drought and heat

By Sports events

Events around the Netherlands are canceled or changed due to the ongoing drought and recent high temperatures. An official national heatwave is set to be declared this weekend, after five consecutive days of temperatures above 30 degrees Celsius measured in De Bilt, Utrecht.

The thermometer should read 30 degrees in distant Noord-Holland, 31 degrees in Friesland and Groningen, 32 degrees in Utrecht and the eastern region and 33 degrees in the south. Despite overnight temperatures dropping as low as 17 degrees, they are expected to rise above 30 degrees across the country on Sunday.

A fireworks display scheduled to take place on Saturday evening in Leersum, Utrecht has been canceled due to the risk of fire. “Unfortunately, by order of the security region of Utrecht, the fireworks cannot continue. It is not safe due to the drought,” the organizers said.

The fireworks show is part of the annual Bloemencorso Leersum, which has been taking place since 1952. The fireworks were to be staged from a park in Leersum. Due to the risk of fire caused by the fireworks, the municipality has just mowed the entire park.

“Unfortunately mowing the flower field was not necessary,” the municipality of Heuvelrug, which also includes Leersum, said in a Twitter post on Friday.

The Halve Marathon Vlieland, which was to be held on Sunday, has also been cancelled. The organization made the decision in consultation with the Friesland security region and the municipality of Vlieland. It would be the first time the half marathon has been run since before the coronavirus pandemic, but the organization said it would have been irresponsible to put runners and volunteers on the course given the heat. “The persistent heat combined with an easterly wind will lead to excessively high temperatures, especially on the shell paths in the dune area,” the Halve Marathon Vlieland website said.

The Harvest Festival in Oldebroek, Gelderland, was also canceled on Saturday. The party includes inspections of cows, horses and sheep, but the associations involved pulled out due to the heat. Practitioners of old crafts also canceled.

The Bemmelse Paarden Dagen, an equestrian event in Bemmel, Gelderland, will continue on Monday and Tuesday, at least for now. The Monday pony market has been cut short. In this market, which has been held since 1958, animals are sold with a traditional handshake between traders and buyers.

The 255th shooting competition organized by the Catholic Shooting Association South Limburg (RKZLSB) was to take place in Mechelen, Limburg. This event has also been postponed due to the heat. Instead, it will take place next Sunday. “After all, the personal health of all participants and visitors should take priority and that is the reason for this decision,” said the municipality of Gulpen-Wittem.

A horse riding competition scheduled for Saturday and Sunday was canceled in Ysselsteyn in North Limburg, and the BraDeLierloop running competition scheduled for Saturday in De Lier, Zuid-Holland, was also canceled.

“Organize more sporting events in Johor to attract crowds”

By Sports events

JOHOR wants more prestigious local and international sporting events to be held in the state to attract crowds.

Chairman of the national committee for youth, sports, entrepreneur development, cooperatives and human resources, Mohd Hairi Mad Shah, noted that two international sporting events are soon to take place.

The Johor International Petanque Double Championship Men’s and Women’s 2022 will be held on August 27-28 while the Spartan Stadion Malaysia 2022 is scheduled to take place on September 24.

“At a recent meeting of the working committee, I asked the organizers of the two events to focus on promotion to attract more participants, especially from abroad,” he said.

Johor had hosted two international sporting events so far this year, namely Ltape Malaysia in June and Iron Man 70.3 Desaru Coast last month.

Mohd Hairi also said that the 2022 International Islamic and Halal Festival of Johor (Fijo) would return after three years.

He added that the four-day event will be held from September 29 at Persada Johor International Convention Center in Johor Baru.

“Fijo 2022 will strengthen Johor’s position as a global player in the halal hub industry,” he said, adding that when it debuted in 2019, sales of RM7mil were recorded.

This year the state is setting a target of over RM20mil in sales and 150,000 visitors.

“Fijo 2022 will provide 300 lots for local and international entrepreneurs to display their halal products.

“International participants will come from Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, the UK as well as several countries in the Middle East,” he said.

There will be eight exhibitor groups such as information technology and telecommunications, government agencies, food technology, finance and e-commerce, industry and machinery, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and fashion as well as tourism and education.

Mohd Hairi urged local entrepreneurs to take advantage of the growing halal market to meet global demand.

“More than US$1.2 trillion (RM5.34 trillion) was spent on buying halal products in 2018 and it is expected to increase to US$1.9 trillion (RM8.45 trillion) this year “, did he declare.

5 Sports Games To Rewatch In August 2022 (And 5 Best Racing Titles Of All Time)

By Sports games

Sports games are the best way to step into the shoes of some players’ favorite athletes. These titles help them fulfill their dreams of becoming sports stars and replicate what they do on the pitch so well.

youtube cover

Sport is a very broad term when it comes to games. There are thousands of sports games out there, and only a few have been able to leave a lasting impact on users.

Over the years, fantastic sports games have been released that can keep gamers constantly engaged and have a chance of being included in the list of all-time gamers.


Five classic sports games to spend the month of August

1) Trial boundary

youtube cover

Available only on Android and iOS devices, Trials Frontier is one of the most underrated sports games. Released in 2014, unlike any other bike racing game, it allows users to drive around their bikes and perform wheelies and other crazy stunts on some of the most creative racing tracks.

Trials Frontier is a unique multiplayer sports game that also has a very compelling single-player storyline. It’s the perfect racing title to try out with friends this summer.

Racing tracks are very addictive and players can get lost for hours trying new bikes and racing tracks in this adventure sports game.


2) FIFA 07

youtube cover

Any list of sports games without mentioning FIFA would be incomplete. Electronic Arts (EA), the developers of the series, has perhaps given the most dedication and effort to this franchise than any other sports game series.

Different FIFA players may have their own opinion on which edition is best. However, one FIFA game stands out: FIFA 07.

It was unique in two ways. It is one of the best designed FIFA titles in terms of gameplay. FIFA 07 also marked a new high in franchise history.

Player control mechanics, deep touch passing and through balls, as well as the legacy defensive style, have all matured in FIFA 07, allowing EA to deliver editions with better gameplay in the future.

Additionally, FIFA 07 has a unique Player Achievement feature that, for some unknown reason, EA has decided to set aside for future FIFA editions. The best part is that he came out at a time in football when Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Andrea Pirlo, Roy Keane, Patrick Viera, Alessandro Nesta, Paolo Maldini, Carles Puyol and Roberto Carlos were still playing.

So users can sit back and beat the August summer heat while playing FIFA 07 Manager Mode.


3) Virtua Tennis 4

youtube cover

Virtual Tennis 4 is by far the best tennis game sequel in SEGA’s tennis game franchise. Launched in 2011, the series also released a World Tour edition of this title, where players could create their own customizable tennis player and compete in a Tennis World Tour to be the best.

The World Tour Edition offered users cool features such as mini-games, minor tournaments on the world map, and all the major Grand Slam titles to compete in.

Overall, it provided an exciting tennis adventure and was well received by tennis players. To this day, many consider Virtua Tennis 4 to be the best tennis game ever made.


4) FIFA 15

youtube cover

FIFA 15 is one of the most underrated FIFA games ever released, and it marked the end of an era. This was the last edition of FIFA where PC players could compete against their console counterparts.

After FIFA 15, EA began to heavily modify the FIFA game control mechanics in favor of the latter.

The attacking gameplay was perfect in this particular edition of FIFA. While the defense can be a little slippery at times, EA have perfected their touch-sensitive through passing in this title.

Since FIFA 15 gives PC users and console players an equal competitive advantage in winning football matches, this one is the perfect sports game to try in August 2022.


5) Motocross Madness 2

youtube cover

Developed by Rainbow Studios and published by Microsoft Games, Motocross Madness 2 is a racing game released in 2000. It is a sequel to Motocross Madness, released in 1998.

Motocross Madness 2 is all about having fun with motorcycles. The game never ceases to amaze gamers even to this day making it a legendary sports game that every user must try at least once.


The history of racing games dates back several decades. These titles have been around since the advent of video games. Although thousands of racing games exist, some remain forever, leaving lasting impressions on gamers.

Here are some of the best racing game classics that everyone should try at least once.


Five legendary racing games worth checking out

1)Forza Horizon 3

youtube cover

Forza Horizon games have set high standards for open-world racing games, and every title is considered gold. In fact, Forza Horizon may be the only racing game franchise to deliver a critically acclaimed game every launch.

Released in 2014, Forza Horizon 3’s map offered a rich mosaic of varied geographical landscapes to roam, from rainforests, beaches, coastal towns and inland towns to a dusty desert landscape that resembles the Great Australian Outback.

Forza Horizon 3 offered players a wide range of car classes, from old retro classics to modern supercars. This racing game series is a mix of the open-world madness of Midtown Madness and the endless exploration possibilities of Test Drive: Unlimited.

No wonder it is considered by many to be the best racing game franchise ever created. And, of all the Forza Horizon titles, many consider Forza Horizon 3 the best of the lot.


2) NFS Underground 2

youtube cover

Few racing game franchises have managed to attract fans quite like Need for Speed. Released in 2004, NFS Underground 2 was the eighth installment in the series.

What sets this title apart from the rest of the NFS games is the wide variety of cars and the equally large number of customization options on offer.

The career mode storyline was also perfect and reflected the culmination of the franchise’s history. Online multiplayer and local LAN modes were also easy to use, making it the most comprehensive NFS title.


3)Forza Horizon 4

youtube cover

Released in 2018, Forza Horizon 4 took the open world of the previous installment, Forza Horizon 3, to the next level. Set in the Edenborough region of England, it offered a massive open world.

Still, the map was packed with plenty of interesting racing events that kept players engaged for hours.

Forza Horizon 4 is considered an upgraded edition of the racing sports game series due to its spectacularly created landscapes that are detailed to perfection and changing seasonal features, which affect the overall driving experience.

The title not only offers a full variety of car classes, but includes some rare special editions and otherwise overlooked retro cars.


4) Most Wanted NFS

youtube cover

Need for Speed ​​Most Wanted is a masterpiece of a racing game offering everything from grand scenarios and addictive race tracks to a huge diversity of supercars and hybrid tuner cars to choose from.

The driving mechanics are top-notch, and this particular NFS title also introduced new racing modes to the series.

It’s one of the easiest driving games to master, making it a very engaging racing game to try, and as a result, NFS Most Wanted has become a global sensation.

Many consider it one of the best story-based racing games ever made, making it a great option to revisit in August.


5) F1 2020

youtube cover

Developed by Codemasters, F1 2020 is the best modern representation of Formula 1 in a racing game title. It follows the Formula 1 and Formula 2 championships for that year.

F1 2020 allows users to create their own Formula 1 teams, sponsorships and teammates and race alongside official teams and drivers, a great addition missing from previous editions.

The title offers a more dynamic driver-manager functionality through the My Team mode and allows players to follow in the footsteps of renowned Formula 1 drivers.

On top of that, driving in this particular sports game offers a more accessible racing experience, which includes a new shake assist system. F1 2020’s endless suite of UI options that can be tailored to a player’s specific needs makes it the perfect racing game to play with friends this month.

Soccer and Asian Champions League winner Kim leaves Lion City Sailors

By Sports games

Asian Champions League-winning coach Kim Do-hoon has left Singapore’s Lion City Sailors by mutual agreement, the club announced on Thursday. Kim, who led South Korea’s Ulsan Hyundai to the Asian title in 2020, joined the Singaporean side in May 2021 and captained the Sailors to the Singapore Premier League title last year.

His departure comes a day after he was suspended for three matches and fined 2,000 Singapore dollars ($1,461) for his involvement in a clash with Tampines Rovers assistant coach Mustafic Fahrudin last month. “Lion City Sailors and Head Coach Kim Do-hoon have reached a mutual agreement to part ways,” the club said in a statement posted on their website.

“We thank him for his service and wish him the best in his future endeavours.” Kim’s appointment was seen as a major boost for the ambitious Singaporean club, which is looking to establish itself in the elite of Asian football.

The former international striker took Sailors to the Asian Champions League for the first time in April, with the club claiming victories over South Korea’s Daegu FC and Chinese club Shandong Taishan in the group stage. Technical director Luka Lalic will take over from Kim on an interim basis, with the Sailors holding a one-point lead at the top of the standings. ($1 = 1.3688 Singapore dollars)

The Left’s Bankruptcy Bill Will Bankrupt You – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Written by Marsha Blackburn
US Senator

washington d.c. – The left’s legislative strategy is simple: give the bill a positive name and hope that people won’t find out what’s really in it. In 2010, President Barack Obama Affordable Care Act gave hope for lower medical costs, but led to higher health care prices for everyone.

Last year the For the People’s Law relied on footage from the Gettysburg Address but included policies that posed a danger to democracy. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 — the latest rebranding “Build Back Better” and the subject of the marathon Senate voting session last weekend — follows the same pattern.




Democrats think they can get away with another bait and change because they assume Americans aren’t smart enough or don’t care enough to see what’s going on. They are wrong on both counts.

In Tennessee, people are frustrated with President Joe Biden for willfully breaking his campaign promises. While he repeatedly said he would not raise taxes on Americans earning less than $400,000 a year, this month’s “Build Back Broke” revamp makes struggling households foot the bill. More than half of the bill’s tax revenue will come from families earning less than $400,000and middle-income households can expect billion new tax hikes.

Tennesseans already know that Democrats’ spending habit is bad news for their budgets, and economic analysts are quick to agree. The San Francisco Federal Reserve and Morgan Stanley accused Biden of causing high inflation for 41 years, and economists warn that persistent spending could put even more pressure on the economy.

Democrats know all this, but in Congress they are fighting to make a bad problem worse. In addition to spending-driven inflation, our country faces a critical supply chain crisis. Build Back Broke will charge new tax increase on already struggling US companies. This will push supply chains beyond their breaking point and force consumers to pay more for less goods.

With economic carnage almost guaranteed, why is the left pursuing its plan? Democrats in the White House and Congress know this is their last chance to pass the Green New Deal.

Ahead of a turbulent vote in November, the left is scrambling to get every item on its “green” wish list enacted, including a $8 billion tax on natural gas. This tax would cause energy bills to skyrocket and could destroy 100,000 jobs. In total, this bill wastes nearly 370 billion dollars just to support the “green” agenda of the Democrats.

The left has proven that it is determined to make its green agenda a reality, regardless of the cost to our freedom and the American taxpayer. Unfortunately for the Democrats, the people of Tennessee know not to buy into their scheme.


On Capitol Hill, I followed the example of the responsible state of the willing state and local leaders who enabled communities to thrive during the economic disaster of the left. That is why I voted against this radical spending and worked for stop the trips like in their footsteps.

The left’s legislative strategy underestimates the American people in order to conceal its radical agenda. Though they may have forced their Build Back Broke bill through the Senate, the people of Tennessee know the truth: Democrats are intentionally bankrupting America.

Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens History – Clarksville Online

By Sports events

Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens have developed a heated rivalry in 26 all-time meetings since the series’ inception in 1996, highlighted by five hard-fought playoff contests – most recently a 20-13 victory Ravens wild-card on January 10, 2021.

No team has faced the Titans/Oilers more in playoff history than the Ravens, despite the first such matchup not occurring until January 2001. Including all regular season games and playoffs, the series is tied 13-13.




The two teams played together in the AFC Central Division for six seasons after the Ravens moved to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996. The league realignment in 2002 brought the Titans to the AFC South and the Ravens to the AFC North, ending their semi-annual season. meetings. In the 13 games since the realignment, the Titans lead 7-6.

The Titans controlled the majority of results in the first five years of the series, winning six of their first nine games. Then, in 2000, the Ravens stole the show. Despite holding the NFL’s best record at 13-3, the Titans lost to the Ravens at home in the regular season – the Titans’ first-ever loss at Nissan Stadium – and then again in a divisional playoff game. the same year. The playoff victory launched the Ravens to their eventual Super Bowl XXXV championship.

Five years later at Nissan Stadium, the two clubs met again in the playoffs, this time in the 2008 Divisional Round. Matt Stover’s 43-yard field goal with less than a minute on the clock gave the Ravens a 13-10 win over the top-seeded Titans.

Top Five PCSX2 Sports Games That Deserve Emulation Improvement

By Sports games

If it seems like video game emulation has been all the rage lately, that’s because it was. Whatever console or arcade system you want to play, you can find it online. What makes the emulation so great is not only that it allows you to enjoy your favorite titles from the past regardless of the console, but the visual fidelity can enhance each title in ways that we never have. would have ever imagined. That said, not all sports games have received this treatment, which is why I’m rounding up this top 5 PCSX2 sports games that still deserve an emulation boost.

PCSX2 is a PS2 emulator for PC, Windows

Getting started is easy, but emulation may require a rather “heavy” gaming PC, especially when it comes to CPU, so do your homework before you get too frustrated. That said, I’ve recently covered a few groups that have taken emulation to the next level with individual gameplay tweaks and improvements, especially with NFL 2K5, Crazy 08, NCAA Soccer 06and NCAA Soccer 14.

Groups of talented individuals have found ways to revamp textures, stadiums, uniforms, scoring bugs, casting options, and more. Being so impressed with their work, I wanted to take a look at five other games that I’d like to see get the same attention as previous titles I’ve covered.

The Five Best PCSX2 Sports Games That Need Updates

MVP 2005

The culmination of a three-year restart program and the transition from Triple play series at the MVP series. MVP 2005 was the ultimate baseball game for many and still is for some even today. It offered a superior pitch and keystroke interface that was both accessible and intuitive.

2005 Baseball MVP Emulation

Let’s also not forget that MVP 2005 also delivered an in-depth franchise mode and also included a proprietary mode that allows you to upgrade facilities over time. Whether you are celebrating MVP 2005 as the best or just a solid baseball game, it still holds up very well today, whether on PC with mods, emulation, or just the original console.

MVP Baseball 2005 Mod

Although it is sometimes possible to get updated rosters for the game, this is usually done by purchasing a memory card for the original console. If the game were to receive the same treatment as the other games I’ve talked about before, it would bring a lot back to this title, and probably in waves. New stadium ads and textures, new current and alternate uniforms, new casting options, and scoring bugs would simply be a boon for game loyalists. In short, 2004 Baseball MVP has always been the mods favorite game, but I wish 2005 Baseball MVP also received this treatment.

2005 All Star Baseball

All-Star Baseball 05 mod

Although Acclaim officially went out of business in September 2004, they still managed to produce one of my favorite baseball games in a long run from 1997 to 2005, with 2005 All Star Baseball be my favorite

It’s a game (and a series) that offered so many unique features, many of which are still not common in the current era of gaming. From first-person pitch to future interpretations of the ballpark, great reviews fluid and a franchise experience where you participated in everything from spring training to winter meetings, and you even got to participate in the Rule 5 Draft.

For me, 2005 All Star Baseball was the best overall experience a true baseball nerd could have at the time, even though MVP 2005 gained most of the notoriety that year. Even today with Sony MLB The Show franchise available, I find real entertainment value to be taken BSA 05 on my PC via the PCSX2 emulator.

All-Star Baseball 2005 mod

Now, with the ability to play the game in higher resolution with improved graphics, I often wonder what could be done if a small group dedicated themselves to improving this series in a way that NFL 2K5 and NCAA Soccer 14 have been.

Like with MVP 2005have 2005 All Star Baseball updated with the current ecosystem of today’s era of baseball would be as welcome as any game on this list. Even though the title might not hold up as well as saying NCAA Soccer 06 Where MVP 2005he still plays a great game and I would jump at the chance to see him improve in almost any way.

Dirt in Daytona

Dirt in Daytona mod

A NASCAR title that flew too far under the radar in its day, and was overshadowed by EA NASCAR deductible and NASCAR HeatMonster Games’ cult title which was available for almost all available platforms was released in November 2002. If you missed it, know that it offered a lot of things to do once this disc was inserted.

The game allowed fans to race in coupe cars, trucks, and the Dodge Weekly Series, and all of them were fun to drive and provided a different experience on the track.

Not to be outdone, D2D also allowed players to jump into a career mode that saw you get behind the wheel locally and prove yourself race after race and series after series, culminating at the top of the food chain in the NASCAR Winston Cup series.

Dirt to Daytona Emulation

While it still holds up very well to this day and running with a roster full of Legends is great, it would be phenomenal if even the game’s textures and logos were improved through modding. The visual fidelity through the emulator helps sharpen the edges and sharpen the graphics, but seeing the tracks, cars and drivers get a makeover would be exceptional and hopefully open the door to people who have never raced in this series before.

NCAA Baseball MVP 06/07

MVP 06 NCAA Baseball mod

Once EA lost the rights to the MLB license, instead of closing shop, they went in a different direction but with the same engine. They took the MVP Baseball engine and created the college baseball equivalent. I’m listing either the ’06 version or the ’07 version because if you have any recollection of that series it was the same title, the latter providing a few more authentic stadiums and new gear.

Much like its MLB predecessor, the NCAA version of MVP was exceptional and one of my favorite series ever created. It only lasted two years due to a lack of sales and support, but the developers did an incredible job of recreating the college game down to the “ting” from the start. A Deep Dynasty mode that gave you a chance to reach Regionals, Super Regionals, and potentially the College World Series, and had a Recruitment mode that helped you find the next big talent for your school.

The series also featured a stadium creation feature, and you could not only rename the kids on your team, but you also had access to their ratings and the ability to edit them for an overall realistic experience.

The game plays beautifully on the PCSX2 emulator, but even at max it’s starting to show its age in terms of graphical fidelity. To see this series get the same treatment as its sibling football counterpart would be, well, just amazing.

2006 NCAA Baseball MVP Emulation

This game is already eating up a lot of my emulator playtime, and visual improvements and updates would take it to the next level.

NCAA Gamebreaker 2004

NCAA GameBreaker Mod 2004

Although overshadowed by EA NCAA Soccer series, the 989 NCAA series offered an awful lot of alternatives, including a solid physics system and AI that were a serious challenge. Also, while I loved the voices of Corso, Nessler, and Herbstreit in the EA series, hearing the legendary Keith Jackson comment on the NCAA GameBreaker The franchise was an exceptional “get” for Sony. Although some of the comments are repetitive, hearing his voice again is worth the experience alone.

NCAA GameBreaker was already an extremely sharp game, and for many the visuals surpassed most of its competition in 2003 and 2004.

The graphics were clean and the game did an amazing job of creating a larger than life atmosphere for the game sounds and the college sites themselves. Again, the game already looks spectacular for having almost two decades and three generations of consoles, but there is always something that can be improved.

NCAA GameBreaker 2004 Emulation

Honestly, an updated roster, logos, helmets and uniforms, and terrain textures would be enough to get back into a full dynasty with GameBreaker.

Conclusion

Here is the lowdown on modding PS2 ISO files. It’s extremely difficult and time-consuming, and the groups and individuals doing it do it for the love of the sport and the title. To make things even more difficult, not all ISO games are accessible and can be modified in the same way, and with some it is simply impossible.

So while I’m sitting here typing the sports titles that I’d like to see improved, I’m doing it from a naive point of view. That said, as the creator himself (see MLB The Show stadium creations) I have a deep respect for everything that goes into every title and creating a better experience for the community.

These are my top five sports games that I’d like to see get the PCSX2 enhancement treatment if possible, but there are so many solid sports titles from the PS2 era and we here at Operation Sports would love to know which games you would list above.

Johnny Burt, a staple of Utah high school sporting events for decades, dies at 66

By Sports events

If you’ve attended a high school football or basketball tournament in the state of Utah in the last three or four decades, chances are you’ve met Johnny Burt.

The short, skinny, bald, bespectacled man with a cantankerous sense of humor and an infectious smile was an ubiquitous presence at Utah High School Activities Association events for more than 30 years, serving as a volunteer, doing everything, from handing out stat sheets to sweeping floors after the game. Along the way, he endeared himself to athletes, coaches, referees, statisticians, parents, fans and everyone in between.

Burt died Wednesday morning of liver failure at the age of 66.

He was born with phenylketonuria (PKU), the buildup of an amino acid called phenylalanine in the body that can cause learning disabilities. The incurable disease is very rare, with fewer than 20,000 cases in the United States per year.

Burt grew up in South Salt Lake, but spent much of his life in Sandy. While cared for by his brother Doug and sister-in-law Peggy, he was a longtime employee of Murray’s Parks and Recreation Department, lived alone until the past two years and was a master at navigating transit but also able to drive until about six years ago, according to Salt Lake Community College athletic director Kevin Dustin, who has been Burt’s friend for about 40 years.

“He was born with some limitations, but he survived pretty well, and he did so in large part by being embraced by so many in the community, especially in the sports world,” Dustin said. “He bonded with people at sporting events. He just became a very endearing personality.

Indeed, Burt loved the camaraderie of sports and so became something of a game-watching addict.

More than once, Dustin recalls, he would get several calls a day from Burt, letting him know he was leaving a hockey game to attend an amateur softball game for 8-year-olds, after which he was going. at some high school game or whatever.

And while Burt also appeared in games for the Salt Lake Bees and Utah Grizzlies, those were the high school sporting events where he was best known.

“He was kind of a legend in state competitions, especially basketball and football – it seemed like he was always around,” said Tom Wharton, a former Salt Lake Tribune writer who covered the high school sports tournaments for more than half a century. “The [UHSAA] usually made him jump from stats to [writers], which was especially a big job if we were at the Huntsman Center and working in the upper press room. He was kinda teasing – you’d want to get the stats, because you were on schedule, and he’d kind of take them away from you, you’d try to grab [the stat sheet] and he took it off. And then he just had this big contagious smile like he was having a good time. You’ve hardly ever seen him not smile.

Although Burt was having a great time, he also took his volunteer responsibilities very seriously.

Dustin, who worked for UHSAA, laughingly recalled the one time he mindlessly went handing out stat sheets to members of the media, only to have a furious Burt confront him and remind him that it was. was his work.

In 2018, Burt was honored by the Activities Association upon his “retirement” from volunteering “after more than 30 years of service to Utah students.”

“The passion for high school sports is what unites our communities, and Johnny certainly had that passion,” UHSAA executive director Rob Cuff said in a statement Wednesday. “Johnny’s life has been marked by an inordinate amount of hardship and struggle, but the same passion he showed for high school pursuits enabled him to overcome the many adversities he faced during his life. Our thoughts and condolences go out to all his family and friends during this difficult time. »

Dustin first met Burt in 1983 while working as an assistant basketball coach at Alta High, and Burt was the “team manager”. Because Dustin befriended him then, Burt remained a constant part of his life over the years, even though he moved to Cache Valley and then returned to the Salt Lake Valley to work for the UHSAA and the SLCC.

“Never a day has passed [I didn’t hear from him]. In fact, if 5 a.m. rolled around and I hadn’t gotten a call from Johnny, I would start to worry,” Dustin said. “Usually he would call me five, six, seven times a day.”

Despite his cognitive disability, Burt apparently had an innate gift for making lifelong friends. Dustin recalled going to Burt’s 60th birthday party thinking there would be a few people there, only to discover a line of people waiting to greet him that took 30 minutes to navigate.

“What he really enjoyed was interacting with people. And when people recognized him, when they called him by name, he instantly became a friend of theirs,” Dustin said. “He was very loyal…once you helped him, once you recognized him or recognized him in any way, you had a friend for life.

“…They broke the mold with him.”

British media said Leipzig were bringing Werner back for around 25 million pounds ($30.21 million) after Chelsea paid the German striker’s 45 million pound release clause in 2020.

“I’m looking forward to the new season with RB Leipzig and especially to seeing the Leipzig fans again, who mean a lot to me. We want to achieve a lot and, of course, I want to become the first Leipzig player to achieve the 100 goal mark. Werner parted ways with Chelsea after two years at the Premier League club, where he won the Champions League trophy as well as the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in 2021.

He made 89 appearances for Chelsea, scoring 23 goals. “Dear Blues, today marks the end of my journey with Chelsea FC,” Werner said https://twitter.com/TimoWerner/status/1557034784848748545, posting a farewell message to fans on his media platforms social.

“I’ve felt so much love and support over the past two years and I’ll never forget how you stood behind me in good times and in bad times. We lifted trophies like the Champions League together and I will always remember the song you wrote and sang for me. I can’t wait to play at Stamford Bridge again one day.”

Former South African referee Rudi Koertzen killed in car accident

By Sports games

Former South African international referee Rudi Koertzen was killed in a car accident on Tuesday morning near a town called Riversdale, a local website reported.

He was 73 years old. Koertzen is survived by his wife and four children.

One of the most respected umpires in world cricket from the late 1990s to 2010, Koertzen officiated in almost 400 international matches.

”World renowned cricket umpire Rudi Koertzen and three other people were killed in a head-on collision near Riversdale on Tuesday morning. Koertzen, 73, from Despatch in Nelson Mandela Bay, was on his way back from Cape Town after a weekend of golf,’ Algoa FM News reported.

The former referee’s son, Rudi Koertzen Jr, has confirmed the tragic news.

“He was in a golf tournament with some of his friends, and they were supposed to be back on Monday, but it looks like they decided to play another round of golf,” Koertzen Jr told the website.

Koertzen was inducted into the ICC’s elite panel in 2002 and served on it for eight years.

During his tenure, he officiated as a referee on the pitch and on TV in no less than 397 matches, including 128 Test matches, a record 250 ODIs and 19 T20 Internationals.

It has also had its share of controversies, including the continuation of the 2007 ODI World Cup final between Sri Lanka and Australia in near obscurity due to a misinterpretation of the rule, which forced the ICC not to entrust him with any mission during the first World T20, which took place in his own country, in 2007.

“In general it’s a fact that we have the back three, the keeper and the double six in Jorginho and N’Golo (Kante) who are all in their thirties. That’s how it is and even though we’re so happy to these guys, we also have to think about the future.”

Ramsey scores for Nice and secures a draw with Toulouse

By Sports games

Wales international Aaron Ramsey came off the bench to score the equalizer for Nice in a 1-1 draw with promoted Toulouse in the French league on Sunday.

Signed on a free transfer from Juventus in the summer, Ramsey replaced Calvin Stengs in the 76th minute and made an instant impact for his new club as he pounced on a pass from Billal Brahimi to score with a first effort in the 78th.

Ramsey is the first Welshman to play in the French league since Brynley Griffith in 1959 according to the official Ligue 1 website.

On his debut in the French league, Thijs Dallinga opened the scoring by fending off a cross from Toulouse captain Branco Van den Boomen in the 20th.

Women’s football gear in demand after England’s historic win

By Sports games

Weekly sales of women’s football gear have tripled since the start of the Women’s European Championship which ended with a historic win for England on Sunday, according to retailer Fanatics Inc, which sold official merchandise for the tournament . The surge in sales demonstrates the growing attractiveness of the women’s sportswear market as social barriers are broken down and participation levels increase. The England senior team’s previous success was the men’s team winning the World Cup in 1966, at a time when women’s football was banned in the country.

An extra-time goal from England’s Chloe Kelly secured a 2-1 victory over Germany at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday in front of nearly 90,000 fans, a record attendance for any UEFA tournament. including men’s matches. The final also recorded a peak television audience of 17.4 million on the BBC, the highest viewership in the UK for a women’s game. In the four hours after England won, online sales of women’s merchandise – from shirts to scarves and mugs – soared around 640%, Fanatics told Reuters. The company, which is the world’s largest licensed sporting goods retailer, operates England’s official online store and works with brands including Nike and Adidas.

“More women’s merchandise was sold in just four hours after the final whistle than in the seven days before the final,” Jack Boyle, global co-head of direct-to-consumer sales at Fanatics, told Reuters. Sports brands and retailers from Nike and Adidas to the American chain Dick’s Sporting Goods have been actively making more room in their inventories and aisles for women’s gear and merchandise.

Adidas’ head of global brands, Brian Grevy, counts “women’s business sales growth” among his personal bonus criteria, according to the company’s 2021 annual report. The company is trying to grow currency-neutral net sales for its women’s business at a percentage rate of teenage girls each year on average between 2021 and 2025. “Over the past two or three years, we’ve seen more investments from Nike and Adidas, especially in women’s football. As they invest their money in sports, it benefits them,” said analyst Jessica Ramirez. at brokerage J Hali and Associates.

The women’s activewear market alone in 2018 was valued at $26.8 billion, according to data from Euromonitor International, compared to $80.1 billion for the overall activewear market. Euromonitor did not have more recent figures. “It could be worth four or five times what it’s worth today, but I hate putting a cap because I think it’s unlimited,” Boyle said. Last year, global sales of Fanatics women’s sporting goods increased by 28%. “I think we’re in the right place to capitalize on the momentum,” he added.

Athletics-Tebogo draws comparisons to Bolt after winning junior record

By Sports games

Teenager Letsile Tebogo has drawn comparisons to Usain Bolt after blasting his way to the world under-20 100m title in record time with a scorching race in Colombia on Tuesday. The 19-year-old Batswana clocked 9.91 seconds to better the junior world record of 9.94 he set in the senior world championship series last month, but he clearly could have gone even further quick.

Tebogo got off to a flying start at the Pascual Guerrero stadium in Cali and raced the final 20 yards, turning to gesticulate at silver medalist Bouwahjgie Nkrumie with a huge smile on his face as he headed for the line. The early celebrations were a deliberate echo of Bolt’s when the Jamaican great won the first of his eight Olympic gold medals in the sprint in a record time of 9.69 at the Beijing Games in 2008.

“If anyone took that as disrespect, I’m really sorry,” Tebogo told the World Athletics website. “(It was so) everyone watching at home could enjoy the race – to remind them a bit of what Usain Bolt did back in the day. He’s my idol – the person I admire.”

Comparisons to Bolt immediately flooded social media and the race caught the attention of the man himself, who retweeted the result. Tebogo said he thought he could have run as fast as 9.80 if he hadn’t run through the end of the run.

“We have other races coming up, we didn’t want to go that far,” Tebogo said. “But this is my year as a junior, we have to leave (the record) here for the next generation to come and beat it.”

”Based on the Athlete’s admission of the anti-doping rule violations…the IAU hereby confirms the following consequences for a first anti-doping rule violation: a period of Ineligibility of three years commencing July 11, 2022 (the date of the provisional suspension).

”…and disqualification of the athlete’s results effective May 1, 2022, with all consequent consequences, including loss of all titles, awards, medals, point prizes and appearance bonuses .” WADA and the National Anti-Doping Agency of India (NADA) have a right of appeal against this decision of the IAU to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne.

Dhanalakshmi clocked a personal best time of 22.89 seconds to win gold in the 200m at the Qosanov Memorial Athletics meet in June, earning him a spot at the recent world championships through the rankings global. She was unable to participate in the showpiece after her doping offense.

NFL-Browns Watson quarterback faces six-game suspension – report

By Sports games

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson is to be suspended for six games for violating the National Football League (NFL) personal conduct policy, a report on the league’s website https://www.nfl. com/news/deshaun-watson-informed-by-judge-sue-l-robinson-he-should-be-suspended-six-games said Monday. Numerous women have come forward over the past year and filed lawsuits against Watson, accusing him of sexual assault and inappropriate conduct.

In March, Watson, 26, denied sexually assaulting or acting inappropriately towards any of the 22 women who had filed charges against him at the time. A Texas grand jury declined to indict Watson.

ESPN reported in June that 20 of 24 lawsuits had been settled. Monday’s NFL report said the recommended six-game suspension was handed down by former U.S. District Judge Sue L. Robinson and there would be no additional fines.

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) said Sunday it would not appeal Robinson’s decision, although the league still has the right to appeal. Watson, who hasn’t played since the 2020 season, joined the Browns from Houston Texans in March this year, signing a five-year, $230 million deal.
