The suspects managed to cart away around P4.5 million worth of jewelry.last_img read more

Act Like You Have Been There Before–Part 2

first_imgI know I have harped on this before, but the other day a defensive lineman for an NFL team made a simple tackle.  He jumped up, pounded his chest, flexed his muscles, danced like a rooster, and then went back to the defensive line.  For the position he was in and the fact that he was a starter means if he didn’t make this tackle he would have probably been taken out of the game.  In other words, it was a basic play.  Pro football is entertainment, and the goal is to sell tickets.  However, when a fully tattooed adult with hair flowing out of his helmet acts like a 3-year old on a temper tantrum, I don’t find it entertaining.  I find it revolting.  At least the NCAA has taken this out of the college game.  They have a rule that any attempt to taunt or show up an opponent results in a 15-yard penalty.  I have nothing against enjoying a good play, and people should be glad when they make such a play.  However, the pros are grown men and I guess I am simply an old fuddy duddy.last_img read more

McIlroy: Don’t rule me out

first_img The world number two, chasing prime form ahead of the coming week’s Masters, shot a one-under-par 71 in San Antonio as American Horschel retained his two-shot overnight lead. McIlroy was six under for the tournament going into the final round and in a tie for fourth place. McIlroy said on the PGA Tour website: “For the most part it was just about trying to play smart … and give yourself as many chances as you can. It was tough. I probably should have been a couple better but it’s still a solid round and I still have a chance heading into tomorrow.” Rory McIlroy believes he can still have a shot at the Valero Texas Open title after ending the third round four shots behind leader Billy Horschel. Press Associationcenter_img He added: “I felt yesterday was really good. Today was not quite as good but the wind made it tough to score. I feel like there’s a low one in me for sure.” A late entry for the tournament, McIlroy shot a magnificent 67 on Friday and started his third round in a similar vein with two birdies in his first three holes. The round looked to be going against his plans after bogey fives at the fourth, 10th and 11th, before birdies at the 12th and 14th moved him back into contention. Horschel opened with back-to-back 68s and a 70 in his third round, featuring five birdies and three bogeys, put him on 10 under, two clear of compatriots Charley Hoffman and Jim Furyk. Hoffman also went round in 70 with five birdies and three bogeys, while Furyk birdied the last, his fifth of the round too, to shoot a 69. McIlroy was in a group of three on six under with Ryan Palmer, who had the best round of the day, a 68, and Bob Estes, who shot a 69. Palmer had four birdies in a flawless round, while Estes looked set to match him only for a bogey at the second last to peg him back. Three-time major winner Padraig Harrington, whose last tournament win came on the Asian Tour in October 2010, was with Scotland’s Martin Laird in a group of five on five under. Jeff Overton, KJ Choi and Daniel Summerhays completed the quintet. Harrington and Laird both shot 70s on Saturday. Laird had an eagle at the par-four fifth but also had three birdies and three bogeys. David Lynn was the highest-placed Englishman in the field on three under overall after a third-round 71. last_img read more

Nigeria: AFCON 2019 ranking, schedule and basic info [Infographic]

The likes of Kelechi Iheanacho (dropped from the squad), Ahmed Musa and Alex Iwobi may have had varying fortunes in the Premier League but all should be able to influence an AFCON campaign; Henry Onyekuru has had a fine season at Galatasaray while Wilfred Ndidi is an outstanding all-round midfielder these days.The Super Eagles look strong and solid, with a hefty punch at the sharp end.–Follow all the Super Eagles games with #JoyAFCON.

Austin Hill wins wild NASCAR Truck Series season opener in overtime at Daytona

first_imgOne of the wrecks during the race. (Getty Images)Racing in the Truck Series for the first time since 2010, and for only the second time in her career, Ruch posted her best finish in a national series event. Her eighth-place result was the second-highest by a female driver in NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series history, with the record belonging to Jennifer Jo Cobb (sixth at Daytona in 2011). Ben Rhodes was leading on Lap 99, before a 10-car crash knocked him out of the race. That wreck forced overtime, and on the first attempt, Self and Bobby Gerhart crashed on the backstretch to necessitate the second attempt. Moffitt, the reigning series champion, was a victim of the Lap 54 melee and retired in 26th place in his first event with GMS Racing. Before the race was three laps old, second-place qualifier David Gilliland brought his No. 17 Toyota to pit road with a cut tire. On the same circuit, Gilliland’s DGR-Crosley teammate, Natalie Decker, followed onto pit road, with a cut tire and a broken oil line. Decker’s car burst into flames, with the fire shooting from the left wheel well, and her crew pulled her from the car, ending her first start in the Truck Series. “The tire went down, and it caught on fire when I brought it to pit road,” Decker said. “I really wanted to have a good finish, but it is what it is.” Under caution for Decker’s issue, Bryan Dauzat pitted after having hit the Turn 1 wall in an earlier incident under green. Unable to bring his No. 28 Chevrolet to a stop, Dauzat hit jackman Billy Rock and knocked him to the pavement.  (Getty Images) In a race at Daytona International Speedway that saw a record 11 cautions, a record 55 caution laps and just nine of 32 trucks running at the finish, Austin Hill took the checkered flag on the 11th lap of NASCAR overtime to win for the first time in the series — in the Hattori Racing Enterprises Toyota that carried Brett Moffitt to the championship last year. “That whole last lap, my heart was pounding,” Hill said of the run to the finish on Lap 111. “I thought there were going to get to the outside and we were going to have a drag race. But I was able to protect it. “I can’t believe my first win came at Daytona. It’s surreal. I can’t wait to party with these guys.” RULE CHANGES: New aero package, postrace inspection penalties explainedGrant Enfinger ran second, 0.278 seconds behind Hill, after surviving a 12-car pileup in Turn 4 on Lap 54. Enfinger rallied from two laps down and tried to manufacture a run on Hill through the final two corners, but Hill blocked him effectively off Turn 4 and cruised to the finish line. “I didn’t have anybody lined up behind me coming out of Turn 4,” Enfinger said.Ross Chastain ran third in his first run for Niece Motorsports. Spencer Boyd was fourth, followed by Matt Crafton, Josh Reaume, Timothy Peters, Angela Ruch and Austin Wayne Self, who’s battered No. 22 Chevrolet was the last car running at the finish.  DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — You could call Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 a battle of attrition, but that wouldn’t do justice to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series season opener. It was more like a long, full-blown war.  Rock was alert and awake, according to NASCAR officials, but was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. Fox Sports later reported that Rock suffered a broken shoulder and was released from the hospital. The early incidents, however, were merely a precursor for the wild action that followed.Reid Spencer writes for the NASCAR Wire Service.last_img read more
