That has always been the Lakers and Hollywood, Pelinka later added. When we are winning here, we know what it is like — the [Leonardo] DiCaprios, the biggest stars come out to cheer for the Lakers. We want to bring that back.Bunting is hard. Matt Harvey makes it look nearly impossible
Even 130 years ago, bunting was controversial. It was considered too easy — there were rules suggested, and rules adopted, to make it harder — and it was considered unsporting. Indeed, the term ‘bunt’ itself appears to have derived from the lullaby ‘Bye, Baby Bunting,’ in an attempt by its detractors to associate it with childishness, writes Peter Morris in A Game Of Inches.
Since that surgery, he has been asked to bunt 27 times. It is a stretch of 27 plate appearances that demonstrates beyond doubt that even if you know how to bunt, bunting is very, very difficult. You wouldn’t fail like Harvey has failed at something that wasn’t very, very difficult.
Remember: some 27 times he’s been asked to bunt. There are, by my count, 13 different things that can happen after that, each outcome representing a certain level of skillfulness at the task. We’re going to count down from the most skillful outcome, and tally how many times Harvey did each of them.
On Monday, New Jersey’s governor signed a new bill to formally legalize it there.
Now that sports gambling is spreading, though, leagues aren’t crying about it. The leagues have fought for years to keep sports betting illegal, but they’re positioned to be among the biggest winners where it’s made legal. Their opposition has quieted.
I think, originally, it was sincere, says John Wolohan, a sports law professor at Syracuse. If you had to talk to some of the commissioners today and say, ‘Are you upset with this?’ I would say no.
Leagues will push for tax revenue from all sanctioned sports betting on the grounds that legalizing it will put a monitoring burden on them.
A week later, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported that Kaepernick’s legal team will seek federal subpoenas to compel testimony from Trump, Pence, and other officials familiar with the president’s agenda on protesting NFL players.
But whether or not Trump could actually be brought in for testimony is still questionable, at best.
