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.

Sports Saturdays: Farewell Captain

September 27th, 2014 by Justin Thomas

alg-jetera-jpgOnce in a generation, a player comes along and defines a great player and great leader for his or her sport, a player whom fans will remember and respect for years to come. For this generation, that player is Derek Jeter.

After 20 incredible seasons in pinstripes for the Yankees, the time has come for Jeter to bid a fond farewell to the fans of New York and the fans of baseball around the world, and boy did he do it in style!

In front of a sold-out crowd at Yankee Stadium, Jeter stepped up to the plate in a tie ball game in the bottom of the 9th with a runner on second and a chance to win the game for the Yanks.
