Point-Counterpoint: Best Sports Couple

first_imgMcGrathI have to say, Cupid is a pretty awful judge of compatibility. I mean, this is the cherub who brought you Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra, Andre “Bad Moon” Rison and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, the Benson’s, Mark Wohlers and ball four … the list goes on. Even when the fat, naked archer got it right, it was obviously a mistake … I mean, he was probably hungry.Without question, the best sports couple is Takeru Kobayashi and the hot dog. Do you know what kind of rock-solid foundation of love it would take for you to sit there and swallow 79,000 wieners and still come back with enough lust to want to gobble down 50 at each sitting? That’s dedication. And it’s reciprocal, too. The frankfurters, despite being notoriously cardiac unfriendly, haven’t had a bit of ill effect on Kobayashi to this point, as he is skinner than Manute Bol after a six-month fast. Take one look at the 420-pound Eric “Bad Lands” — that must mean the unfortunate earth that is underneath him at any given point in time — Booker and his physique fit for an oversized bean bag chair, and it is clear that the tube steak is showing the K-man some love.”Take”-out also has become a millionaire for his unique talent for guzzling down wieners like Lil’ Kim does … well, wieners. Meanwhile, Nathan’s hot dogs are still more popular than those stupid floppy-discs of beef served at most fast-food eateries, and dominate the attention of the American public on the most patriotic of days, the Fourth of July. Again, Cupid must’ve been aiming for Mary Kate Olson when he hit the gluttonous Kobayashi, but regardless he created a match made in Roman myth. Point: Hot dogs and Kobayashi. 2.14 PCP — PoppyPoppyThe best couple in the sports world should be one in which each side brings the best out in each other, and what better place to do that than the playing field?With that said, any athlete involving singer Toni Braxton is disqualified. Remember when she tore the Dallas Mavericks franchise apart in the mid-1990s by messing around with Jason Kidd, Jim Jackson and Jamal Mashburn?Anyway, the best couple in sports is none other than Ivan Rodriguez and Ugueth Urbina. Not to imply or disrespect anything homosexual, but seriously, the catcher-pitcher duo in baseball is one that requires a strong relationship, and Pudge and Ugi had just that.In 2003, Rodriguez and Urbina hooked up on the unlikeliest of teams, the Florida Marlins, and made history. Pudge had signed a one-year contract with the Marlins in hopes of reviving his career, and Ugi came on board mid-season as Florida found itself in the wildcard race. The battery connection posted solid seasons but made their magic in the postseason.As Rodriguez and Urbina opened the playoffs, they found their cupid in Steve Bartman, who in the single swift of one hand helped the couple on their way to the World Series, and it was there they showed everyone their true affection for one another.As Urbina recorded two saves against the Yankees, he and Rodriguez celebrated the Marlins’ victories with a smooch on the mound. It caused a stir in the sports world, but really it’s just an extension of the butt-smack.Rodriguez and Urbina even had a honeymoon of sorts, jumping ship to the lowly Tigers the next year. Furthermore, the couple had their divorce this past season as Detroit traded Urbina to Philadelphia.Nevertheless, Rodriguez and Urbina are the Best. Sports. Couple. Ever.last_img read more

No. 13 USC beats UCLA, keeps Pac-12 South hopes alive

first_imgIt was unraveling rather quickly. Junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had to be helped off the field — status in doubt — redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Darnold had thrown an ill-advised interception and Mike Fafaul, UCLA’s backup quarterback, had thrown a touchdown pass to give the unranked Bruins a lead over the No. 13 Trojans in the second quarter.False alarm, it turned out to be. USC rattled off 29 unanswered points to beat the Bruins 36-14 at the Rose Bowl on Saturday night to win its seventh straight game and keep its Pac-12 South hopes alive. With Utah losing to Oregon earlier on Saturday, the Trojans will claim the Pac-12 South crown if Utah beats Colorado next week.It’s also, of course, a rivalry win — the rivalry win.“It feels great to beat UCLA because it gives us bragging rights, and it’s also a good Pac-12 South win,” redshirt senior offensive tackle Zach Banner said.Darnold threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns, both to senior wide receiver De’Quan Hampton, who had the game of his USC career. Hampton’s three catches for 51 yards was more than the 22 yards he recorded the entire season leading up to Saturday. His score with 9:54 to play in the third quarter gave the Trojans much-needed separation.“I can say it was worth the wait,” Hampton said. “As much frustration, just being the position I was and getting the opportunity — when it came, it was all worth it.”Junior wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster catches a pass against UCLA. He dealt with an apparent hip injury all game long – Nick Entin | Daily TrojanSmith-Schuster appeared to injure his hip region while making a leaping catch in the first quarter. Despite receiving treatment from the bench and making a trip to the locker room, the wide receiver re-entered the game at several points, finishing with seven catches for 76 yards. Head coach Clay Helton said after the game that Smith-Schuster had a hip pointer.USC accrued more than twice the amount of total yards (527 to 226) and rushing yards (260 to 55) as UCLA en route to the Trojans retaining the Victory Bell. Sophomore running back Ronald Jones II led the way with 121 yards and a pair of touchdowns.“I thought that was the key to the game,” Helton said on the efficient rushing offense and defense. “It enabled us to basically hold the ball for 43 minutes and 47 seconds in the game.”It wasn’t entirely smooth sailing. With the game tied at 7-7 in the second quarter, USC appeared to swing the momentum in its favor after sophomore defensive tackle Rasheem Green blocked a UCLA 45-yard field goal attempt. But what followed was an unfortunate sequence of events for the Trojans.Darnold threw incomplete for Smith-Schuster on the first play of the series, but the wide receiver stumbled to the ground after the play and promptly left for the locker room. Two plays later, Darnold was intercepted by Fabian Moreau, who jumped the route of senior Hampton and returned it to USC’s nine-yard line.UCLA took two plays for Faufal to find Lasley again for another touchdown, this one putting the Bruins in front 14-7 and USC in the rare position of trailing early in a game. During their win streak, the Trojans have routinely jumped out ahead and set the tone.“It really showed the maturity of this team,” Helton said. “It did not see any panic with any of the guys.”Instead, the Trojans stayed poised and collected.It didn’t take long for them to respond, thanks to Jones blazing past defenders for a 60-yard touchdown run. Jones stutter-stepped his way into a big hole and the burst through, leaving the Bruins in the dust.“The offensive line did a great job setting up the edge,” Jones said. “Then I just cut upfield and it was off to the races.”After a three-and-out by UCLA, USC took its first lead on a 31-yard connection from Darnold to Hampton. Hampton reached up over Bruins defensive back Randall Gorfoth to bring down an impressive reception. The Trojans took a 20-14 lead after the extra point went off the upright.USC tacked on a field goal before halftime to take a 23-14 lead into the locker room.Adoree’ Jackson runs for a gain on offense in USC’s win over UCLA – Nick Entin | Daily Trojan“I feel like we’ve had a lot of adversity,” Jackson said. “We’ve been ready. When things happen like when they score quick … having that adversity in the past, when things like this hit, we don’t get rocky. We just keep going.”It was an inauspicious start for the Trojans, as UCLA found the end zone less than 90 seconds into the game. Fafaul found Jordan Lasley for a 56-yard touchdown, with Lasley slipping from the tackle of’ Jackson after making the catch.But after allowing 14 first half points, the defense clamped down, shutting down UCLA the rest of the way.“I thought the defense, who really all of a sudden has a hit to them in that first drive, they take a deep breath and the really showed great, great poise,” Helton said.The Trojans answered with a calm nine-play scoring drive, taking advantage of excellent field position at midfield. A spectacular catch by Smith-Schuster set up first-and-goal at the one-yard line, and Jones pounded it in to even the score at 7-7.Sam Darnold threw two touchdowns and two interceptions in the win over UCLA – Nick Entin | Daily TrojanFor all the concern about the early-game struggles, USC quickly erased any doubt of an upset. And though Darnold’s two interceptions raised some eyebrows — his second was a wild launch to the end zone from UCLA’s 44-yard line that was picked off — coaches quickly brushed it off as part of the unpredictability he brings to the table.“Certain animals are born certain animals, and you can’t change it,” offensive coordinator Tee Martin said. “I like that about him. I like that he’s going to push the envelope. He’s going to push the defense and see how much he can get.”Helton added his positives outweigh the negatives.“You take the good with the bad,” he said. “But thank goodness for us, there is a lot more good than there is bad.”USC ends conference play at 7-2 (they face a non-conference opponent, Notre Dame, next week) and will await the result of the Colorado-Utah game, hoping that Utes pull out a victory.“It would be awesome if they could get a win,” Darnold said.last_img read more

first_imgBlack Stars defender John Painstil  has been assigned a midfield role  at  his  new club  Polokwane City in south Africa. Painstil who convinced the technical team of his new club after spending a few days at training  sessions.In an interview with the clubs official website, santos headcoach David Notoane disclosed the reasons for the Ghanaian international’s signing.”You can see he plays more with his head. He’s a very intelligent player so it gives us the opportunity to look at things differently in terms of our choices in defence and in midfield.”Notoane revealed that it didn’t take long for Paintsil’s quality and understanding of the game to shine through at training.”From day one his technical ability was undoubted while his leadership skills and influence on the younger ones, I think will be very valuable – based on his experiences and tactical insight into the game.Painstil is known for his quality in defence for club sides fulham, westham and the likes but his current trainers are thinking of changing his role to play in midfield.”We can use John in the midfield, that is where we are looking for a little bit of leadership.

Garrett Richards leaves Angels to ink deal with Padres

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Richards, 30, was 45-38 with a 3.54 ERA with the Angels, who had been his only team since they took him in the 2009 draft. He was the Opening Day starter in 2016 and 2018.Injuries began to derail his career when he tore ligaments in his knee late in 2014, which was his breakout season. He then missed most of 2016 season after damaging his ulnar collateral ligament. He avoided Tommy John surgery by using stem-cell therapy, beginning 2017 healthy.  He then missed much of that season with a biceps nerve injury. In 2018, he re-injured his elbow and opted for surgery.Related Articles Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter After missing most of the past three seasons with a variety of injuries, Garrett Richards is going to continue his career – in 2020 – with the Padres.The Angels made a serious bid, including at least two concrete offers, but came up short in the bidding, according to a source.The Padres reportedly guaranteed Richards $15 million over two years, even though he won’t be able to pitch next season, as he rehabs from Tommy John surgery.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

While we’re excited to start a new chapter as a Padre, it’s not easy to say goodbye to the only team I’ve known.” Although Richards won’t be able to pitch in 2019, it is not unusual for teams to sign players to multiyear deals at a reduced rate to have them when they are ready to return.The Tampa Bay Rays signed Nathan Eovaldi to a two-year, $4 million deal prior to the 2017 season, and he didn’t pitch until May 2018.Richards’ deal is worth much more, indicating the competition for his services.
