Royals Flush A’s in Extra Innings

October 1st, 2014 by Justin Thomas

Wild Card Game - Oakland Athletics v Kansas City RoyalsIt took them 4 hours and 45 minutes and 12 innings, but the Kansas City Royals used their smallball skills to beat the moneyball Oakland A’s, 9-8.

This is the Royals’ first trip to the postseason since 1985, when they won the franchise’s only World Series title. They returned to postseason baseball and certainly put on quite a show for all of the baseball fans, eager for even more great games in this postseason.

It didn’t look too promising for the Royals in the 6th inning, when they suddenly found themselves down 7-3 with the momentum tilting fully towards Oakland.

Chet Faker – A Golden Show

September 30th, 2014 by Leandra Caprini-Rosica

photo Chet Faker Live

Show Date: 9/10/14

Rating: 9/10

“You gotta know, I’m feeling love…” the repeated lyrics from Chet Fakers single, ‘Gold’, accurately describe how I feel about the Melbourne, Australia native and his self-produced music making it onto the charts. The relaxed twenty-three year old, Nicholas James Murphy, goes by the stage name of Chet Faker. As there is already an Australian musician by the name of Nick Murphy, he created this stage name in an ode to inspiring jazz musician Chet Baker. Faker took on the name when he uploaded his first cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” in 2011.
