Tennessee head coach Kellie Harper met with the media Wednesday afternoon at Thompson-Boling Arena, answering questions about SEC Game No. 5/6 Lady Vols in Nashville Thursday night against Vanderbilt.

UT (15-1/4-0 SEC) and Vandy (10-6/1-1 SEC) will square off for the 85th time in the series, at Memorial Gymnasium at 9:05 p.m. ET (8:05 a.m. CT). The game will be televised by SEC Network, and the statewide Lady Vol Radio Network and SEC Radio SiriusXM Channel 374 will have the audio broadcast.

By being ranked #5…

“I think we’re delighted with it. We’re proud of what we’ve been able to do so far. In fact, we haven’t even talked about it as a team, but I think they’re well aware of it. They can’t hide this big news. You know, we’re really excited with how our team has improved and how we’ve been playing, and we just hope to keep building on that.

On Vanderbilt…
“Well, I think one of their strengths is their defense. They held an Arkansas team to 55. They’re aggressive, they make plays, they get robbed and just frustrate the offensive team. So, I think that’s number one. Number two, I think they’re pretty disciplined on the offensive end – they run their sets, they understand who should shoot the basketball and where they should shoot it. And they’re going to be motivated. They’re playing really hard, and they’re also trying to prove something.”

On how much she thinks fans will travel…
“I’m really expecting a lot of Orange. I’ve spoken to a lot of people who are coming. I think our players have a lot of people who will be there. So we’re planning a pretty good Big Orange contingent.”

Late departure…
“It will definitely be after my bedtime during the game, so it’s a tough turnaround. There’s no doubt about that. It’s a long day tomorrow. We’ll go to Vanderbilt on Wednesday night, then Thursday c It’s just like that. A long day. So we’re just going to try to push it all back, and let them sleep a little longer and try to start the day later. And then when we get back, the players will actually be on a bunk bus, so hopefully they can rest after the game on the trip home.”

On managing a full day on the road before tipping…
“What we’re trying to do…we’re splitting it up a bit. Obviously we have to get them up, feed them, and we’ll have a movie session. We’ll have a shoot; we’ll have a pre-game meal. But in between those times , they’ll have plenty of free time to rest. You don’t want them lying around all day. What we’re going to do, I think, is get them in and out. We’re going to break away from all the activities that we have to do tomorrow.”

On COVID-19 postponing Kentucky’s Thursday night game…
“I think at this point we want to play our games, you know. But then you look at it, and it’s a tight turnaround for us from what they (Kentucky) are going to do suddenly. But you know we’ll be focusing on Vanderbilt and then when this game is over we’ll try to figure out how we’re going to prepare our team (for Kentucky) so you have to pick yourself up and you have to prepare for your next game. I hope we can get them there.

On whether Vanderbilt means more as an adversary in the state…
“I think for me, this game will always be different, and you know, the rivalries in the state…growing up, half my family were Tennessee fans and half my family were Vanderbilt fans. I still think it’s a big game I know Vanderbilt very well, and Memorial (Gymnasium) is so unique, obviously with the setup of the game, so it’s still going to be a game that I don’t want to say is more important , but he will always hold something a little stronger for me, I think, with my past.”

On the non-conference program…
“I think our non-conference schedule did what it was supposed to do. I think it challenged us. I think we were able to play a lot of people again, we had close games and we got through it. with a lot of confidence, and I think that prepared us for SEC play as well as you can be prepared for the SEC. I mean, it’s every night. You must be awesome, and you know that this league is so, so tough this year. So hopefully he did his job.”

At Rae Burrel
“I think Rae is progressing extremely well. I think she played really well against Ole Miss. I think she followed that up with a really good practice after that game. And, you know, I think her progression is there. where we need to be I think she’s fitting in perfectly right now I think she’s taking good shots I think she’s making good decisions I think she’s aggressive where she needs to be aggressive , and I feel like you know, not putting her in a pressure situation but allowing her to come back more easily has been a good thing, and I think every day I think we can see her being a a little more comfortable, and I think that’s good for our team.

At by Rae Burrel presence that makes the difference…
“I think the one thing that Rae (Burrell) has always been great at is putting the ball in the hole. I think you know, just getting her back there gives you one more weapon. She has a great height. Right now, I think she’s doing a good job defensively. We need to get her a little more comfortable to get back on the boards, and that will come, but I think what it does, it just gives you one more really talented player. (It) gives me options.”

On what by Rae Burrel injury has done for the team in the long run…
“Well, in retrospect, you know, we can look back and see what this injury did to our team. It really challenged a lot of our players to pick themselves up, and we had to figure out some things. I think that not only the challenge of improving, but I think the challenge of playing through adversity – playing with a man down. I think it was great to see our team figure it out. Honestly, when they were able to playing through that, it gave them a lot of confidence that we were able to really carry on.”

At Jordan Horton step it up this season…
“I think Jordan has matured a lot. I think she’s grown a lot. I think the experience that she had the first two years has put her in a position right now to walk the court with great confidence and also the air that she’s playing in. I think she’s in better shape now than she was maybe her first two years and also, I think her presence on the pitch, offensively and defensively , has affected our team in a positive way.

On what Jordan Horton has meant for the team this season…
“I think right now she’s making the team better, because she’s making a lot of plays. The other thing is her plus-minus is really strong coming in and out. You know, she’s making a great work on the boards. I think our team has a lot of confidence in Jordan (Horston) and a lot of confidence when Jordan (Horston) is on the court because he can make plays. He can affect almost any play in because of what she can do on the boards – and defensively too – with the basketball.”

Improved free throw shooting…
“Our team really talks about the work they do. I hear it in the middle of the game. I hear our players talking about it. You know, we are committed as a group to work harder and to achieve more. They feel good about it, and we help track that to keep motivating them, but they’re so nice, and if there’s one area that we have a deficit, they want to be better, and I think that’s what you see. I told them… I said, “Hey, it can be slow. You know, that margin can grow a little bit at a time, but that’s where we’ve got to at least push it in a positive direction. “”

On the potential of Rae Burrel rejoin the starting XI…
“We’re 15-1. We’ll probably keep it as it is for a while.”

On the evolution of post-game locker room celebrations…
“So as best I can tell from what happened, our staff came in with big celebrations. And then one time we decided to go in and try to trick them a bit to disrupt them, kind of stoic and nice to scare them a little bit and then go crazy for them. Then I think because we did that they decided, ‘Oh, we could turn it around.’ So they started to turn the tables on us, and now it’s completely lost. We’ve lost all control, completely lost all control. So, I have no idea what’s going to happen next. And we’re out of it now . I mean, we just come in and see what’s going to happen.”

Keep having fun with the team…
“We actually had different group meetings this week. We call them leadership groups, and it did happen, and we think it’s really important to keep the fun going. I don’t think it’s going to be a problem. I don’t think we’re going to lose it. I strongly believe that we can work really hard and have a good time. I think you can do both at the same time. And I think this team responds well to that. I think they’ll go out, and they’ll work hard, and they’ll do it with a smile. I think, for me, it’s a really good space to be in.

Add a new round of debate to a Canadian curling scene that hasn’t been short of juicy stories of late.

The oft-discussed wildcard setup at the Nationals again took center stage on Monday with the release of updated standings that appeared to determine the game’s match at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts.

Nothing has been finalized yet by Curling Canada, which is also expected to make a joint announcement with the Canadian Olympic Committee this week on who will wear the maple leaf in mixed doubles at the Beijing Games.

Add to that a recent decision by the Ontario Curling Association (CurlON) on its rep Scotties and all the bases of the drama seem covered.

Recent event cancellations – including mixed doubles trials and several provincial and territorial championships – have stirred the pot over what the National Federation should decide for its playoffs.

Calls for Curling Canada to use up three wild-card entries at Brier Scotties and Tim Hortons for a second year in a row have increased in recent times due to limited competition options.

But if the current setup holds, Chelsea Carey will face top Tracy Fleury in the preliminary game on January 28 at Fort William Gardens in Thunder Bay, Ont.

WATCH | This Curling Show, Full Episode:

Mixed doubles curlers debate who should represent Canada at the Olympics

With a gold medal in mixed doubles to defend, curlers Kerri Einarson, Wayne and Kim Tuck, Tyrel Griffith and Chelsea Carey are voting on who they think should represent Canada. 1:12:06

Carey edged out Homan and Hollie Duncan in the final standings after securing points in the Saskatchewan playoffs last week. The totals for Homan and Duncan remained unchanged after the event was canceled in Ontario.

“Seems like a good year to have three wild card teams at the Scotties [and] Brier to be fair, “tweeted Wayne Middaugh, who replaced injured Glenn Howard on the Wild Card Three squad at last year’s Brier.

With the Scotties starting on January 26 and the Olympics kicking off on February 2, time is running out.

Asked about the wildcard situation and if any changes could be considered, a spokesperson for Curling Canada said by email that the matter was “being resolved today” and that an update would be forthcoming.

Carey, joined Monday afternoon in Regina, said she would like to see several wild side teams on the pitch.

“I don’t agree that there are only two teams because of the provincial championships and the way it all went,” she told The Canadian Press. “I think that should be what they did last year.”

The generic format, which replaced the unpopular four-team qualifying system, was first used in 2018.

“It would be unethical …”

The top two ranked teams that have yet to advance to the P / T playoffs face off in a Losers Showdown.

“It would be unethical to change the rules after the fact [now] who’s in this wild card game for, ”veteran Captain Mike McEwen said on Twitter. “But I’m not saying the rules / formats are fair given the circumstances that teams / provinces face. Reinstating 3 Wild Cards at the National Championships for Women and Men is the fairest solution. “

Any potential change would require a new draw. Scotties play-in match team entries were left vacant on the competition website Monday and the Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) standings were not updated.

However, the Canadian rankings – complete with weekend game updates – were available on Monday on the World Curling Federation’s website.

They showed Carey to have 21.175 points as they advanced to the Saskatchewan final. Since the top five competitions this season have been used, her tally (127.058) placed her just ahead of Homan (125.031) and Duncan (116.056).

“CTRS points cannot be awarded in Provincial Championships that have been played and none for those that have been canceled due to COVID. That’s the tweet,” said Ryan Fry, who plays third on Team John Epping, on Twitter.

Carey, a two-time Scotties champion, lost a 7-5 decision to Penny Barker in the Saskatchewan final on Sunday.

“Yeah, we got to play provincials – in quotes – but we had to worry about COVID all the time,” Carey said. “I don’t know, I’m not sure it’s better. We probably would have been the Saskatchewan team – we were the No. 1 seed in the provincials – so if we hadn’t played we probably would have been named as the team.

“So I’m not even sure it’s better that we can play. Everything is just a mess right now, unfortunately. “

Homan, meanwhile, has been provisionally appointed to represent Ontario. CurlON also decided that if she was named to the Olympic mixed doubles team with John Morris, Duncan would go to the national championships instead.

Contingency plans

Part of the reason for Curling Canada’s delay in naming the duo – trials for 16 teams were called off on December 26 – can likely be attributed to determining what could happen in the event of COVID-19 keys over the next few years. weeks.

“Every contingency plan has a contingency plan behind it,” said a spokesperson for Curling Canada, declining to go into details.

THIS CURLING SHOW | Wayne and Kim Tuck discuss the Mixed Doubles Curling Program:

Wayne and Kim Tuck criticize Canada’s mixed doubles curling program

The married curling duo say Canada needs the right infrastructure to create a stand-alone mixed doubles program, separate from team curling. 2:12

When it comes to the wild-card format, the three-team setup was generally viewed as a success in last year’s domestic playoffs in the Calgary bubble.

Curling Canada said it made the change last year to ensure “the quality and integrity of the championships” as many teams have not had the opportunity to play for spots due to the pandemic.

The schedule had essentially returned to normal this season before the arrival of the Omicron variant. Many teams have been limited in recent times based on cancellations and restrictions related to the pandemic, which vary across the country.

About half of the players confirmed for the Scotties have been cheered for their places.

Homan’s four-player team have collected more than half of their points this season with strong performances in two Grand Slam events. A final place at the Olympic trials in November proved costly.

The Jennifer Jones team won the trials and will represent Canada in Beijing. Team Brad Gushue won the men’s team place.

The Brier is scheduled for March 4-13 in Lethbridge, Alta.

What’s next for new F1 champion Verstappen: winning virtual Le Mans 24 https://staticgamer.com/whats-next-for-new-f1-champion-verstappen-winning-virtual-le-mans-24/ Sun, 09 Jan 2022 10:03:25 +0000 https://staticgamer.com/whats-next-for-new-f1-champion-verstappen-winning-virtual-le-mans-24/ The 24-year-old will take part in the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans next week, taking on some of the biggest names in motor racing and “sim racing”.

The 24-year-old will take part in the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans next week, taking on some of the biggest names in motor racing and “sim racing”. A star-studded grid of 200 drivers will compete in a video game race, on simulators around the world for a winning prize of $ 125,000.

What is the 24 Hours of Le Mans?

The oldest active endurance event in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is won by the car that covers the greatest distance in 24 hours. The race, contested at the iconic Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France, is also one of the most dangerous motorsport events: 22 drivers lost their lives in 99 years and 83 spectators were killed in a single accident in 1955.

What is the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans?

The inaugural virtual race took place in the summer of 2020, after the annual real-world race was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event was watched by over 14 million viewers. Last year it became a full-fledged digital championship series.

Next weekend’s event will be the second officially sanctioned virtual race of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and will be streamed live on YouTube, Twitch and Facebook.

How does the virtual race take place?

The race uses the rFactor 2 simulation game and allows competitors to drive LMP (Le Mans Prototype) or GTE (Grand Touring Endurance) cars on a virtually recreated Circuit de la Sarthe. Riders can compete from their homes using driving simulators – a wheel and pedal setup is mandatory. Teams can customize their machines with liveries, leaving certain areas free for official partners.

Raffaele Marciello, the winner of the 2020 edition, uses a “quite expensive” setup from his days as a Formula 1 test driver. There are three monitors for better immersion, but it is still “easy to get by. let the outside world distracted “.

“Your girlfriend is passing by. You look above and there is no car, only the roof of your house. Sometimes the doorbell or the phone rings, ”Marciello told The Indian Express. “But it’s also a good workout because you learn to stay focused for many hours at a time. When you’re in a real car on the track, staying focused isn’t a concern.”

According to the rules, a pilot cannot run for more than 7 hours. The rFactor 2 game’s day-night duty cycle means parts of the race will take place in the dark just like in real life. Vehicle damage is also set at 100%, which means that the damage will visibly affect the car and its handling. It can be repaired in the pit stop, but “very serious accidents and incidents could lead to terminal damage, for example falling wheels”.

Is this Verstappen’s first foray into racing simulation?

The F1 world champion is also passionate about racing simulation. In early 2020, when asked about the limbo caused by the coronavirus and his off-season training, Verstappen said on his official website: “Simulator racing is keeping me alert. What else can you do right now, you got to stay inside. and it’s fun, i really like sim racing anyway. Over the winter I have done a lot and try to practice my skills and improve them further. That’s why I like to do it.

Verstappen took part in the first virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans that year with fellow F1 driver Lando Norris. They were leading for Team Redline when a frozen screen resulted in a collision with future winners Rebellion-Williams Esports.

This time around, colleagues from Verstappen’s “Team Redline” include Swedish IndyCar driver Felix Rosenqvist and simulation racers Max Benecke and Atze Kerkhof.

Who are the others in competition?

Reigning IndyCar Champion of Spain Alex Palou is on the pitch with two-time Indianapolis 500 winner and former F1 racer Juan Pablo Montoya, two-time Dutch F1 esports champion Jarno Opmeer and an all-women team from the W Series.

Fantasy Basketball Week 13 Waiver Wire: Anfernee Simons, Nicolas Claxton’s Best Additions, Plus Calendar Notes https://staticgamer.com/fantasy-basketball-week-13-waiver-wire-anfernee-simons-nicolas-claxtons-best-additions-plus-calendar-notes/ Fri, 07 Jan 2022 20:27:33 +0000 https://staticgamer.com/fantasy-basketball-week-13-waiver-wire-anfernee-simons-nicolas-claxtons-best-additions-plus-calendar-notes/ Salvation!

Salvation! Welcome! Lots of promising mics this week, so let’s go.

Frankly, it was a fun article to write. While the rest of the United States is still experiencing a wave of COVID, the NBA outbreak is clearly slowing (finally) – making it easy to continue to focus on players whose growing fantasy value is unrelated. to this interminable disease.

On top of that, there are several excellent prospects available, many of whom have great potential to stay on the rosters for the remainder of the season. Fantasy basketball has been unusually difficult over the past month or so, but this silly hobby is slowly starting to feel like it’s meant to be starting over again.

As usual, players in this article must be registered in less than two-thirds of the CBS leagues. The players are listed in the order in which I recommend adding them, assuming they are a good fit for your squad as well.

Additions for all leagues

Anfernee Simons, Trail Blazers (52% enrolled)

I’m in full Damian Lillard panic mode which causes Simons to skyrocket through my ranks for the remainder of the season. The Blazers are only one game away from the play-in, but they appear to be in a completely separate level from the West’s top nine. Lillard is suffering from a strange abdominal injury and appears not to have fully adapted to the new NBA ball yet. If there’s ever been a year to let him rest (and improve draft positioning along the way), this is it. Basic logic, combined with recent reports – in particular this from Sean Highkin from Bleacher Report – he made me think that Lillard is going to sit a lot more than the four games he has already been excluded for.

The Blazers have 45 games to go. If Lillard is away for a month (including the two he has already missed; that is, from 01/01/2022 to 02/01/2022), that’s 14 Following missed matches. If he’s out until the All-Star break, that’s 22 games. These hypothetical return dates have Lillard missing between a third and a half of the remaining games. Plus, at this point Portland is likely to be even further removed from the playoff race, encouraging an even longer absence and more load-handling DNP if and when he returns. If I read this correctly, Simons will probably play at least half of his remaining games as a starter with Lillard on the sidelines. It’s a huge window of opportunity.

And I liked Simons even when Lillard was active! Simons has been in and out of that column all season, and he’s been a big addition whenever Portland’s backcourt is limited by injury. He’s played at least 23 minutes in 20 games this season, averaging 29.0 minutes per game – a large sample size and easily reproducible workload as we move forward. In those games he is averaging 16-3-3 with 2.8 3s. And he’s been even better than that starting the last two games with Lillard, scoring 35.5 points (!) And 7.0 assists.

Simons is an all-place, no hesitation, to add.

Nicolas Claxton, Nets (47% enrolled)

Claxton is still recording solid minutes, 27.7 in the last six games, even though the Nets are now almost in great shape. He finally starts in front of LaMarcus Aldridge. Claxton plays almost all of his minutes next to James Harden, and that’s a good thing – that says the coaching staff saw the same Harden-Claxton synergy as I did, and they’re acting on it (and the minutes de Harden are not going anywhere). Since Christmas, Claxton has played 151 of his 166 minutes alongside the former MVP. Claxton is an elite per minute producer and one of the best sources of blocks you will ever find on the waiver thread. It’s good, not great, in points leagues – but it’s a staple in category formats.

Cameron Johnson, Suns (61% enrolled)

Another week goes by, and with it three more Johnson fantasy lines. His line from last week is 19-5-1 with 4.0 3s and 1.7 shares. In the 10 games since Devin Booker’s return from his hamstring injury, Johnson has maintained 17-6-1 with 3.5 3’s and 1.4 shares. I’ve been drumming him for weeks, and his sign-up rate is high enough that we can soon ignore him here. But in case you missed those calls to action, the tl; dr is I think Johnson is likely to stay on the rosters for the rest of the season as a low end top 100 guy.

Herbert Jones, Pelicans (54% enrolled)

Like Claxton, Jones is a returning favorite in this column who maintains his value even though his teammates are in good health. His value jumped when Brandon Ingram missed a few games, but Ingram is back for 3 games and Jones maintained 33.7 minutes per game, accumulating 11-5-3 and 4.3 actions (!). He is mostly a defensive specialist, but he does enough elsewhere to only really hurt in points. In the deep leagues, he’s an add-and-hold for the rest of the season. He is more marginal in the standard or shallow settings, but I retain him in some 12 teams.

Omer Yurtseven, Heat (65% roster)

Yurtseven appeared ahead of Johnson and Jones in last week’s column, and he was arguably better since his release than before. The only reason I’m dropping it here is because Yurtseven is almost certainly a short- to mid-term addition, while I think the players above are likely to stay on the rosters for the long haul. But in the short term, Yurtseven is unquestionably more valuable than Johnson or Jones. Since joining the starting lineup, he’s averaged 13-15-2 with 1.3 steals. He’s playing well enough to stay the starter when Dewayne Dedmon (knee) returns – which could be any day now – but the eventual return of Bam Adebayo (thumb) will likely send Yurtseven on waivers.

Kevin Huerter, Hawks (39% enrolled)

I know, I broke a record on this guy. At the start, he averaged 14-3-3 with 3.4 3s and excellent shooting efficiency. He doesn’t do much defensively, and none of those numbers are obvious, but most teams probably have at least one worse player than him.

Rajon Rondo, Cavaliers (25% enrolled)

Covered Rondo in detail last week, and it still hasn’t made its post-trade debut in Cleveland, so nothing new to report. The short version – Rondo is old so don’t expect too high, but there are plenty of opportunities and he showed last year that he can still be a top 20 passer, even in a matter of minutes.

Larry Nance, Trail Blazers (50% enrolled)

Last week’s best addition was injured on Wednesday and is expected to be missing next week. Assuming he comes back in a week, he’s good enough to add, hold, or pick up if a teammate gets impatient. That said, not everyone is in a position where they can afford a week without production from a waiver perspective. Hence the vertiginous drop from the top to the bottom of this list.

Other recommendations: Bismack Biyombo, Suns (4% enrolled); Terrence Ross, Magic (42% enrolled); Coby White, Bulls (45% enrolled); Malik Monk, Lakers (44% registered); Patrick Beverley, Timberwolves (47% enrolled); Gary Harris, Magic (34% enrolled); Obi Toppin, Knicks (21% registered); Brandon Clarke, Grizzlies (25% enrolled); Jalen Smith, Suns (20% enrolled); Maxi Kleber, Mavericks (10% enrolled)

Program Notes

The NBA is following one of its busiest weeks with one of the quietest. Only one team has a two-game week, the Lakers, but there are also very few four-game weeks. Only 11 teams play four times.

Quiet week means playing against someone with just two games – either a Laker, or someone likely to miss a game and come back midweek – isn’t as dangerous as it usually is. . The flip side is that players with four games are very valuable.

Day to day, it’s a mostly balanced schedule. On Saturday there are 10 games which is somewhat busy, but most daily roster managers will still have room to start a waiver wire pickup. Ditto for Wednesday and Friday, which have nine games.

On the other end of the spectrum, Sunday only has four games, while Thursday has five and Tuesday has six. This gives a noticeable boost to players in action on any of these games, especially those in action on Sunday. The Warriors and Nuggets both have four game weeks, including games on the three quiet days (Tuesday-Thursday-Sunday); the Timberwolves also play all three days, but they only have three games.

For those with strict acquisition limits, a few things to consider. The Warriors are the only team to end the week with three games in four nights. But 10 teams have 3-for-4s Wednesday through Saturday, so managers have plenty of options to target for players and then give up for a Sunday streamer. Plus, the Nets play four games in five nights, starting on Sunday in Week 12. This means managers can use a Week 12 pickup on Sunday that prepares them to start Week 13 with a 3-in-1. 4. Finally, the Bulls have a 4-for-5 midweek, Tuesday through Saturday.

that of Microsoft Game pass has become an engaging way to explore the ever-growing library of Xbox consoles and play a plethora of games on the cheap. This on-demand subscription service has established itself as the benchmark for console gaming services.

RELATED: Will Xbox Game Pass Work on Steam Deck?

SAN JOSE, Calif .– Tomas Hertl scored with 30.1 seconds left in overtime and the San Jose Sharks spoiled Philadelphia goalie Felix Sandstrom’s stellar debut with a 3-2 victory over the Flyers on Thursday night.

Sandstrom, 24, made 43 saves in his first NHL appearance, but couldn’t stop Hertl at close range late in overtime after good preparation from Erik Karlsson.

Hertl also got an assist and extended his point streak, his career best point streak, to eight games for the Sharks, which followed an 8-7 shootout victory over the Arizona Tuesday with a more complete performance.

“I think we played a lot better,” said Hertl. “We were much better in details and Zone D, and we even had more chances than the last game. It was a good game.”

Logan Couture scored a shorthanded goal and Brent Burns also scored for the Sharks. James Reimer made 23 saves.

San Jose returned from a COVID and Christmas break by winning back-to-back home games before heading off on a four-game road trip.

“It’s a long time to sit down for a 10-day break,” said coach Bob Boughner. “We know we have a rough road trip, but we want to stay in this situation. Recover, and here we are.”

Joel Farabee tied the game with 4:03 left in regulation and Morgan Frost also scored for the Flyers.

The Flyers extended their point streak to seven games, thanks in large part to Sandstrom.

“I thought he was exceptional,” said interim coach Mike Yeo. “He looked calm and he looked confident in the net. This is what we have seen of him in practice. It’s kind of his behavior, it’s my impression of him as a coach. That’s what you love about a goalie, that he doesn’t get shaken.

The Sharks took a 2-1 lead in the third after Couture and Burns scored two minutes apart in the second period.

They looked in good shape after knocking out 1:56 from a two-man advantage while allowing just two shots on goal.

But after San Jose failed to increase the lead on their own power play, Farabee tied the game when he beat Reimer from the circle in a rush.

“I really saw some tired mistakes there,” Yeo said. “When you’re tired, sometimes the execution isn’t quite there, sometimes your pace isn’t quite there. I thought the will and the competition were there all night.

NO RETURN

The Flyers opted out of starting goaltender Martin Jones in his first game in San Jose after being bought out by the Sharks over the summer.

Jones won 170 games in six seasons with the Sharks, the second-largest in franchise history and helped them reach their only Stanley Cup final in 2016. But he had a .896 save percentage over the course of of the past three seasons and the Sharks have redeemed the past three. of his contract.

Jones is 6-4-1 with a .911 save percentage in Philadelphia after making 34 saves in a 3-2 overtime win in Seattle on Wednesday. Playing an overtime game, combined with the Flyers not arriving at their hotel until 4.30am, led to the decision to start Sandstrom instead of Jones.

“We don’t want to put Jonesy in a tough spot,” Yeo said. “I wish he could play against his old team. Considering the workload, I think it’s wise to put a new body in it tonight.

LIST MOVEMENTS

The Sharks put defenseman Mario Ferraro on COVID-19 protocol right before the game and activated forward Jonathan Dahlen from the protocol.

The Flyers put center Sean Couturier on the injured upper body list and named him week after week.

FOLLOWING

Flyers: Visit Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Sharks: Visit Pittsburgh on Sundays.

Text messages. Social media. On TV. This is all because of circumstances that we think we can control, but we cannot.

INFLUENZA IN SPORT • Everywhere we turn we see anger. Text messages. Social media. On TV. This is all because of circumstances that we think we can control, but we cannot. Or maybe it’s because we think it should have been under control now, but it isn’t. Yes sir, it’s really too cold outside.

•••••••

• What, you thought we were going to taunt on COVID-19 and its impact on the sporting events that mean so much to each of us? In fact, we are. But the point is made, is not it? The pandemic has become as ingrained in our daily lives as the weather and we as individuals seemingly have just as much control over it.

Some days are sunny and mild. Others are cloudy and windy. And a few, like the ones recently, are filled with thunderstorms, ice, lightning, tornadoes, and just about every other horrible thing you can imagine.

It’s not like we have any control. We wish we did it, but we don’t. The virus travels through society at its own pace. It spits on our puny attempts to limit its spread. It blows, like a cold north wind, and freezes us in our tracks. This is, as Shakespeare said, our second consecutive winter of discontent. And there is no glorious summer to be seen anywhere.

So we take our soap boxes and moan about it. Some, like North Carolina state football coach Dave Doeren, get it courtesy of ESPN. He used it to tell the world he thought UCLA lied to them about its COVID-19 issues. As if the Bruins don’t want to play the canceled Holiday Bowl Tuesday night. Coaches are the first to stand up in front of their team and preach that they can only control what they can control. Do not be led astray by extenuating circumstances. And here is Doeren, bitching and moaning about something over which he – and UCLA – has no control.

If the latest tidal wave of this pandemic has taught us anything, it has taught us that our illusion of control is just that, an illusion. Oh, we can do anything to limit exposure and contact, but if we want to play sports, there are going to be problems. And extraordinary cancellations. The new variant is also powerful.

Wear your mask. Wear two if you feel the need to. To get vaccinated. Boosted. Try to keep your distance when possible. But if you play basketball, football, hockey, or whatever, going the next month without infection can be like seeing a unicorn.

It hit us this morning as we were sweeping the driveway and taking out the trash. We had layer after layer. Thick gloves, woolen hat, everything. And we are still cold. Funny, though. We didn’t rush, pick up the phone, and talked about it on Twitter or Instagram. Blame Canada. Cursed be Tom Sherry. Shake our fists at the weather gods. It would have been pointless. Or it’s warmer outside.

Although, to be fair, a few hundred likes could have made us feel better.

• We have always loved watching and listening to John Madden. He has been an exceptional coach with the Raiders. He was even better as a football analyst.

This is how we will remember him after his death yesterday at age 85. But the next generation, the generation of my children, will remember him as the face of the best football video game on the market.

Madden was a celebrity crossover before such things were popular. He reached my generation (and those even older) thanks to his footballing prowess. He reached the next one through marketing.

He never changed. The circumstances around him made it. He was what he seemed to be. Outgoing, talkative, fun loving, dedicated.

When a person dies, the only phrase that quickly comes to mind is that they will be missed. In the case of Madden, this has already been true. He had been away from the spotlight for a long time. And he had been missed. He will always be missed.

Return of Tiger Woods: 2022 golf tournaments that could be landing points for 15-time major champion https://staticgamer.com/return-of-tiger-woods-2022-golf-tournaments-that-could-be-landing-points-for-15-time-major-champion/ Mon, 27 Dec 2021 21:04:04 +0000 https://staticgamer.com/return-of-tiger-woods-2022-golf-tournaments-that-could-be-landing-points-for-15-time-major-champion/ Christmas has passed, which means the year of golf 2022 is on the bridge.

Christmas has passed, which means the year of golf 2022 is on the bridge. While the focus is mostly on the coming year, Tiger Woods’ performance at the 2021 PNC Championship a few weeks ago still resonates. He looked so… shocking (?) Good that it became impossible not to try to project where he could do it first in 2022. There are some very specific and obvious landing points for him in the game. new year, but one of them stands out. all – and it’s probably not what you’d expect.

But before we get to that, we should talk about a broader timeline. Obviously, what Woods says doesn’t always align with what he does (that’s the case with all professional athletes), but he noted two distinct realities when, in an injury-plagued year, he held his first press conference in the Bahamas at the Hero World Challenge in early December.

1. “I don’t foresee that this leg will ever be what it was, so I’ll never have my back again, and the clock is ticking. I’m getting older, I’m not getting any younger. All of this combined. means a full program and a full training program and the recovery it would take to do it, no, I have no desire to do it. does a good job, and there’s no reason I can’t do it and feel ready.

Tiger won’t play 20 times a year, and he probably won’t play 10 times a year. At this point in his career, at his age with the number of operations he has had, gambling 6 to 8 times a year is a ceiling that was once a floor. Here’s another clue he gave.

2. “As far as playing at the Tour level, I don’t know when it’s going to happen.”

We got an answer to that – sort of – at the PNC Championship when Tiger and his son Charlie almost won the event after shooting a 57 Sunday in scramble format. It is true that Tiger was in a cart the whole time and clearly exhausted by the end of it, but he was swinging the club with amazing speed for someone who could have lost their leg 10 months earlier.

After playing together at the PNC on Sunday, Matt Kuchar did anything but declare Tiger the Masters favorite in April (he’s 40-1 according to Caesars Sportsbook, by the way).

But Tiger pushed it all off when asked about the future.

“No, no, no, no,” he said when asked if he thought Kuchar’s comments were accurate.I totally disagree. I am not at this level. I can’t compete with these guys anymore right now, no. It’s going to take a lot of work for me to get to where I feel I can compete with these guys and be at a high level. “

He reiterated that he “will never play a full program again” and will choose his events and “even then my body might not cooperate with that”.

So that’s the context as 2021 leads to 2022. This year marked the first since 1991 that Tiger hasn’t kicked off at least one official OWGR event, and I can’t imagine, especially after seeing it at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club a few weeks ago, this streak spanned two years. There are caveats, of course. Maybe his back or knee or leg or neck or one of the myriads of body parts he has chopped up over the years are not cooperating and he’s unable to golf at some level raised. But it became clear after watching him try to get a win with his son this Sunday in Orlando that Tiger is still here, if not winning, so in competition at the highest level in sport.

“Competitive juices, they’re never going to go away,” Woods said. “It’s my environment. It’s what I’ve been doing my whole life. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to do it again. Earlier this year was not a very good start to the year, and he didn’t look very good. “

So where might we review competitive juices and what might Woods’ timeline look like in 2022? Once he starts playing, he will almost certainly play – on purpose – play all the major tournaments he can. But where (and when) will it start? There are 5-7 natural entries for the 15-time major winner, and here is a man’s guess based on all the evidence we have as he turns 46 later this week and takes his broken body away. (but still sharp) in a new year.

Genesis Invitational (February 17): While the symmetry of returning to the event that took place just before his gruesome crash in 2021 would be nice, it is just too early for Tiger. I’d be more surprised if he played here than I did if he played the PNC Championship with Charlie.

Arnold Palmer Invitational (March 3): If he wants to play the Masters but doesn’t want to play it as his first event (like he did in 2010 when he finished T4 at Augusta), then that’s a natural place. I don’t really buy it, however. I think we’re looking at either Masters or another event later in the year. I don’t think we’ve seen Tiger on the course until April because I don’t think he’s as concerned about rusting as he’s worried about resting and staying healthy for major championship golf. .

Masters (April 7): It’s easy to see, isn’t it? Fifteen months after the crash, Tiger joins other greats in the greatest cathedral this country has to offer. A celebration of his one week career that is highly unlikely to end with a cut made – let alone a fight for another trophy – but it is one of the best times of the whole golf year nonetheless. Walking Augusta is a concern – especially since her first tournament is back – but it’s definitely on the line in a way I never imagined it would be just a month ago.

PGA Championship (May 19): In my head, his first return event will be either the Masters or the Open Championship, but this one is certainly doable. Six weeks is an eternity for him, so the distance between Augusta National and that second major of the year – and how healthy he can be in between – could make a decision for him.

Memorial (June 2): It would make sense if the PGA arrives too early or if he doesn’t want to fight the mighty Southern Hills. The weather will be warm enough here for him to feel confident to relax. It would also be a nice low-stakes tune-up for the final two majors of the year.

US Open (June 16): That would be a bizarre re-entry point for Tiger, who hasn’t done well at the US Open for the past decade (he hasn’t had a top 10 since 2010). I’d be surprised if he subjected his body to the tribulations necessary to fight with a US Open course and setup. If he’s already back then maybe, but I’d be stunned if this was his first tournament back.

Open Championship (July 14): The Open gives Woods the most time to heal, and the 150th edition at a location where he has already won two major championships? Come on, this is the perfect marriage of golf history and living legend. Woods was amazed in his eyes when asked recently if he is potentially returning to the Old Course in July. He knows that while his opportunities at Augusta National are greater (he can play there for the next 20 years), the window to play the Old Course at an Open is closing. As a real contender there, this one or the next – a bit later in the 2020s – will likely be his last.

It will be significant, and no matter where we see it in 2022, I imagine he will go to great lengths to ensure he does so at Burn on July 14 with the Claret Jug in his crushing shadow. What an incredible scene that would be.

the Assassin’s Creed The franchise has taken players across the globe and through time, visiting places like ancient Egypt, the icy coasts of Scandinavia, and of course the Middle East, where the first game was filmed. The main entrances alone have taken players to dozens of fascinating locations in history, allowing fans to explore the world with free-roaming mechanics and deep lore.

RELATED: Assassin’s Creed: 10 Ways Origins Fixed the Series

Although Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla was only released in 2020, many fans are already wondering where the next game will take place. While there are endless possibilities for new settings, some of the more interesting ones could take players to regions and time periods that the main games have not yet scanned.

8 Sengoku Jidai is an expected but engaging possibility


Jin Sakai in Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut playing classical Japanese instrument at sunset

If a parameter can be considered a perfect fit for the Assassin’s Creed franchise, it would definitely be the Sengoku Jidai period of Japan. While this may be too obvious a choice for some fans, there is a lot to be done for an exciting new game in the series.

With the power games and intrigue of samurai clans in a divided country, important figures such as Oda Nobunaga and Tokugawa Ieyasu, as well as the appearance of the ninja in historical documents, this particular setting could perfectly fit into the tradition of the series so far. .

seven Mansa Musa’s Mali Creates Gold Tier Content


Assassins Creed Origins Siwa Mountain Leap Of Faith

Many who know the name Mansa Musa will recognize the character who is often considered the richest person who ever existed, who once gave so much gold on his trip to Mecca that he crippled the economy of Egypt for more than a decade.

RELATED: Assassin’s Creed: 10 Times The Templars Did The Right Thing

This period in West African history would provide a very interesting setting for a possible game. There would be many exciting places to explore, such as the big city of Timbuktu and the Sankore Madrasah, one of the biggest learning centers in this part of the world.


6 The Three Kingdoms of China could fit right into the franchise


One of the most famous eras in Chinese history is the Three Kingdoms period, immortalized in the epic tale Romance of the Three Kingdoms. With a lot of intrigue, betrayal and heroism, this would make a perfect setting for a future Assassin’s Creed Game.

One of the most exciting possibilities to present this setting in a full game would be the introduction of the great warriors and politicians made famous in the Tales of the Three Kingdoms. Characters like Lu Bu, considered one of the greatest fighters of all time, could be great opponents to face.


5 Horde invasion of Russia presents exciting possibilities


While Russia has made a few appearances in the franchise before, one particular period that could provide an interesting setting to explore in depth would be the 13th century. It was then that the fractured hordes that Genghis Khan once united invaded Europe and sacked much of Russia.

RELATED: Assassin’s Creed: 10 Villains Who Were Basically Right

There are many interesting facets of history to examine in this setting, with players navigating a war-torn climate and meeting fascinating historical figures such as Batu Khan, one of Genghis Khan’s descendants.


4 The fall of the Khmer Empire has a lot of potential


City of Assassin's Creed Origins

While there are many interesting settings to explore in the history of Southeast Asia, the Khmer Empire just before its eventual decline might be the most interesting. After a period of great prosperity, the region fell into great upheaval as civil wars and external threats slowly eroded the stability it once had.

A bit like the other Assassin’s Creed games, one of the most interesting aspects of this setting would be to explore some of the ancient wonders of the world when they were at their peak, like Angkor Wat, which was built near that time and remains still standing to this day.


3 16th century India was a time of great change


Assassins-Creed-India-Image

India is a land with a rich history which offers many opportunities of interesting and unique scenery for a possible game. However, the 16th century could be one of the best possible entries into the franchise. This period was only at the beginning of European influence in the region and at the height of many great civilizations.

Times of change provide perfect opportunities for Assassin’s Creed games, allowing developers to merge real-world history and their own story in exciting and unique ways. This period in history would be one of the best occasions to do what Assassin’s Creed does the best.


2 The Inca Empire is ripe for exploration in a new game


An assassin in the jungle in Assassin's Creed

Another fascinating setting for a possible new game would be the Inca Empire in South America, around the time of their first contact with European explorers and conquistadors. It was a civilization at the height of its power and spanning vast expanses of land.

RELATED: Assassin’s Creed: Every Main Character, Ranked By Kills

Driving through the Peruvian highlands and the great city of Cusco would provide some incredible visuals, and the South American setting would allow one to explore a very different culture and mythology against the backdrop of the Assassin’s Creed traditions.




1 Mexican War of Independence Could Bring Interesting Easter Eggs


Perhaps one of the most interesting settings that could feature in a future game in the franchise, California in the early 1800s would be the perfect setting for an Assassin’s Creed game. With groups of revolutionaries fighting against the Spanish rulers of the territory, it would be easy to integrate both the Assassins and the Templars into the story.

One of the most interesting possibilities for such a game would be to have a tribute to the famous figure of Zorro. While not historic, it could be presented in a way that gives the masked swordsman a subtle nod.

My, oh my.

What a game.

It was a game that was exciting and surely stressful for both fans. But in the end, a team came out victorious.

The 49ers couldn’t get over Jimmy Garoppolo’s turnovers in their 20-17 loss to the Titans.

It was a game where all the 49ers had to do was get on offense. I wrote about this before the game as the Niners defense was going to easily stifle the Titans offense. Even with the return of AJ Brown and Julio Jones, this offense was not threatening. Winning this match was going to drift offensively. And from the start of the game, it looked like this. The offensive of the opening series was so methodical. Kyle Shanahan started out with passing and action play to keep the Titans from overloading themselves against the run.
