My Personal Story & Condolence To Ralph Branca
By Cornelius Hanna
As a kid growing up in Brooklyn during the 1970’s the baseball broadcast you could recite by memory was “The Shot He ard Around The World". The Russ Hodges 1951 call went like this “ Here’s a long drive. … It’s gonna be, I believe … the Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant! Bobby Thomson hits into the lower deck of the left-field stands. The Giants win the pennant, and they’re goin’ crazy! They’re goin’ crazy! I don't believe it! I don't believe it! I do not believe it!" Ralph Branca was the man who threw the pitch to Bobby Thompson.
Uncharacteristically he became as famous and popular as the hero. That's unusual in sports, since history seems to forget the unfortunate one's. Does anybody recall who threw the game seven walk-off home run pitch to the Pirates Bill Mazeroski in the 1960 World Series? While infamous, the burden Branca had to carry was humungous, given the burgeoning business of broadcasting baseball on television in 1951. Moreover, series ending walk off home runs to decide championships were rare. READ MORE >
Olympic Hero, Bruce Jenner
A petition to revoke Caitlynn Jenner's Decathalon gold medal was wrong. It's understood that Bruce Jenner had always felt like a woman, but the fact is that Caitlynn Jenner said she was living her life as a man (Bruce) in a man's body when she won the gold , which means she participated in the men's event as a man and deserves to keep the gold medal. Why must this point be argued? When witnessing Jenner's amazing accomplished in Montreal back in 1976, all I saw was, no man was better than Bruce or Caitlynn , male or female.
Lets focus on Jenner's soul that was speaking to him throughout his life. Jenner's physical being is of a man with the soul of a woman. Jenner gave us a beautiful display of human athletic ability to cherish forever and now opens our eyes to goodness and the beauty of the human soul. Ironically, the Olympic logo of circles, or rings, represent wholeness, according to psychologist Karl Jung, and when joined together, continuity.
Jenner has represented it well, unconidtionally and positively, connecting us in our global journey called the human race.
Caitlynn is the U.S.A. greatest Olympic athlete ever & owns the gold medal to prove it.
Hello Caitlyn Jenner
Jenner made his female debut on Vanity Fair cover showcasing his Gender Transition.

Refugees competed in Olympics
Gennady Golovkin (37-0, 33 KOs) vs. Canelo Alvarez (49-1-1, 34 KOs) was made official for September 16th following Canelo’s unanimous decision win over Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on Saturday night. This will be a Middleweight (160 lbs) contest, with Golovkin putting his numerous belts on the line.
Canelo and Triple G will get it on on Mexican Independence weekend, Sept. 16, as Golden Boy CEO Oscar De La Hoya said, "anywhere in the world."
“I’ve always stated that Triple G will happen in 2017, ever since a year ago when everyone was asking, ‘Why are you afraid of Triple G?’ Why is this not going to happen? I told everyone it was going to happen in September. And we’re extremely proud, and happy and excited that this fight is going to take place on September 16.
De La Hoya further added, "The Triple G side is such a pleasure to work with. . . . We negotiated back and forth several times, it was no big deal. These types of fights take a long time sometimes. This particular fight took two weeks to make.
“Now I did start negotiations a while back and we halted those negotiations out of respect for Chavez and this event.," De La Hoya added. "And we halted those for about a month, and then we started negotiating two weeks ago and it got done a few days ago."
Gennady, “GGG” Golovkin is boxing superstar and has always been cordial and yet confident about his goals. He said, “ I remember what it was like before I became a champion, I’m sure being hungry for the opportunity and train hard. I’m very excited to continue building my story. I have a great deal of respect for my opponents. I look forward to fighting them. As for a fight verse Canelo Alvarez, “I want to fight Canelo and many big fights, big shows, but it’s not frustrating for me to face other fighters. I'm very excited… we're ready," Golovkin said.
Canelo has raised his value over the past 2 years through the great promotional work of Golden Boy and keeping him in the limelight. Canelo kept winning and now it's time to face the best. "In September, they will see the greatest fight," Canelo said. "The era of Canelo is the best because I fought the best. A lot of you said this fight would never be made."
The latest from Pro Boxing Odds has Golovkin still favored, but at -157 to Canelo’s +150.

DODGERS APPROACHING POST SEASON: FACTS VERSUS HISTORY
By Max Ferregur
In a world of alternative news and facts, there is nothing alternative about the Los Angeles Dodgers. The LA Dodgers have the most wins in Major League Baseball with 89; thirteen more than any other team. LA’s offense is dynamic and is in the top 5 in the MLB in runs, slugging percentage and on base percentage. The Dodgers are in the top 10 in home runs and RBIs as well. Also, their pitching is phenomenal, leading the league in ERA, WHIP, OBA and shutouts. And, the Dodgers success in pitching is not just due to their ace, Clayton Kershaw.
The Dodgers have the 3rd best ERA in the month of August without Kershaw who went down with an injury in late July. Another fact contributing to their success… the Dodgers do not give up on ball games. They lead the MLB with ten walk off wins this season. By looking at the facts and even at Vegas, the Los Angeles Dodgers are a clear front-runner for the World Series with their 2 -1 odds. There are no alternatives here, only jaw dropping facts that have resulted in their greatness this season so far.
Many analysts and fans had high hopes for the boys in blue this season, but no one expected them to be the best team in the MLB by a comfortable margin. Most people saw a very competitive National League with the Nationals, Giants, Cubs and Dodgers, but so far no NL team has come near the success the Dodgers are having this season. Some people even saw the Giants taking the division, and the Dodgers getting a wild card. The Dodgers are nothing close to a wild card team and they are only getting better and stronger toward the season’s end.
At the deadline, the Dodgers acquired Tony Watson and Yu Darvish adding to an already stacked bullpen and staff. LA also acquired veteran Curtis Granderson to add leadership and depth in the outfield. And, let’s not forget, Adrian Gonzalez is just coming off the DL and joining the 2,000 hit club. Instead of a being one of a few contenders for the World Series like past years, theLos Angeles Dodgers are now the favorite to win it all.
The Dodgers are having a historic season and they even have a chance of reaching an all time record in wins of 116. Earlier in the season, the Dodgers won 30 of 34; the last timethat happened in the NL was 1936. Since April 24th, the day Cody Bellinger got called up, the Dodgers have a record of 81-24. The Dodgers are also on pace to break the franchise record of 105 wins currently held by the 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers. The LA Dodgers would have not been able to do this without the help from their stars like Kershaw, Seager, and Jansen, but some unlikely names turned into All-Stars this year and carried the Dodgers like Alex Wood and Cody Bellinger. Both are now spending time on the disabled list along with Yu Darvish and waiting for the return of Clayton Kershaw.
Alex Wood has been the most shocking surprise of them all. Wood, who was never considered an All-Star or a threat, had only one winning season in his career before this year. He was not projected to even make the starting 5 man pitching staff, and many people saw him more as a bullpen option. It made sense because as a Dodger, he averaged a record of 6-10 with a 4.04 ERA. Not very impressive. But this year, impressive is an understatement for Wood. He has been dominant and phenomenal. With his 14-1 record, he has the best win percentage among starting pitchers and is only one win behind Clayton Kershaw for the league lead. His ERA has been in the top 5 in the bigs. Wood is a likely CY Young candidate, but he is not a favorite, as teammates Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen are ahead of him. In any case, Wood went from a subpar pitcher to an All-Star and a Cy Young candidate.
Cody Bellinger was an anticipated prospect but he was not expected to be an All-Star his rookie year. Cody’s amazing rookie campaign is one for the ages, and Bellinger is another key factor to the Dodgers’ success. The Dodgers were 9-11 before he was called up and now they are 89-35. Bellinger is in the top 5 in homeruns in the major league and has the second most in the National League, only behind Giancarlo Stanton. Bellinger is also in the top 15 in the National League in RBI’s despite missing the first 20 games of the season. Cody Bellinger’s impressive stats have made him a clear favorite for rookie of the year and an All-Star.
Can Bellinger and Wood continue their success when the post season rolls around in October? The Dodgers postseason history in recent years has been nothing short of awful. The Dodgers have not won or been to a World Series since 1988. Since 2008 they have made the playoffs 6 times. But, LA has been knocked out of the NLCS four times, and the NLDS twice. Recent playoff nightmares have been the Phillies, who knocked them out in ‘08 and ‘09 of the NLCS, and the Cardinals who knocked them out in the playoffs in ‘13 and ‘14 with the headlines of Clayton Kershaw's unsuccessful playoff performances. Also, one cannot forget about Daniel Murphy who tore up the Dodgers in 2015, and the “miracle” Cubs who crushed the Dodgers’ hopes of a World Series last year. But, seeing their rival, the Giants, win 3 out of 6 World Series might be the worst nightmare of them all.
Yet, with their unsuccessful postseason past, the Dodgers have never entered the postseason with this type of team and record. The Dodgers have a deep bench and a strong bullpen this year, which had been a problem in the past postseasons. Also, the Dodgers will likely be the number one seed in the MLB this year, which they have not done in their six recent playoff trips. The boys in blue will be the number one seed in the National League this year too, which they have only done once before out of the six times since 2008. And, when they were the number one seed in 2009, they had 95 wins; the second best team, the Phillies had 93. That margin is very slim, as the Dodgers were not a very dominant one seed in ‘09. This year, the Dodgers will be the most dominant team in baseball and in the National League by a comfortable margin, not a slim one.
It is late August, and many people in the sports world are talking more about fantasy football, Giancarlo Stanton's power surge, and of course, Kyrie’s new home in Boston, rather than the Dodgers outstanding record. Day-by-day, the Dodgers are making history and chasing 116, but even if they reach 116, their season would be labeled as a failure without a ring. When October rolls around, only one headline will sum up the Dodgers season. For the Dodgers, a 2017 World Series Championship is the only redeeming alternative.
Greatest Big Game NFL Quarterback is?
Terry Bradshaw barely makes it into the conversation of best big-game quarterback of the Super Bowl era. It seems the mainstream conversation now begins and ends with Tom Brady and Joe Montana.
Not as the greatest quarterback of all-time, mind you, but certainly as the greatest big-game quarterback.
