Marshawn Lynch signs off from Seahawks with advice for younger NFL players, has special moment with Aaron Rodgers

first_imgSeahawks running back Marshawn Lynch may have played his final NFL game Sunday. For real this time.The 33-year-old, who came out of retirement late this season to join a depleted Seattle offense, ran for two touchdowns in his team’s 28-23 divisional-round defeat to the Packers. Afterward, Lynch used his postgame media availability to offer advice to younger players in the league, his own experiences providing urgency to the message. Lynch said his peers should be mindful of saving their money and preserving their health in order to lead fulfilling post-football lives.Lynch does not usually speak at length in front of reporters because it makes him uncomfortable, so this marked a departure from his standard approach to having microphones in his face.Lynch used the rest of his time at the podium to tell fellow players to take care of their minds and finances. pic.twitter.com/vMhPA5fnUy— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) January 13, 2020MORE: Packers avoid another postseason choke against SeahawksHis postgame press conference went like this:Reporter: How would you describe your comeback, Marshawn?“It was solid,” he said.Reporter: And scoring four touchdowns in three games?“Pretty solid.”Reporter: What’s going through your mind right now?“Shoot, we lost.”Reporter: Come back next year?“I mean, shoot, we’ll see.”Then Lynch decided to deliver a message to young NFL players:“Look,” he said, “I’ll say like this though: This is a vulnerable time for a lot of these young dudes, you feel me? They don’t be taking care of their chicken right, you feel me? So if it was me, or if I had a opportunity to let these little young (teammates) know something, I’d say take care of y’all money, African, because that (stuff) don’t last forever now.“I’ve been on the other side of retirement and it’s good when you get over there and you can do what the (expletive) you want to. So I tell y’all right now while y’all in it: Take care of y’all bread, so when y’all done you can go ahead and take care of yourself. So while y’all in it right now, take care of y’all’s bodies, take care of y’all’s chicken, take care of y’all’s mental. Because, look, we ain’t lasting that long. I had a couple players that I played with that they’re no longer here no more — they’re no longer — so you feel me? Take care of y’all mentals, y’all bodies, y’all chicken, so when y’all ready to walk away y’all walk away and you’ll be able to do what y’all want to do.”(If you’re confused, “chicken” means money.) Lynch also shared a special moment with Aaron Rodgers after the game.Marshawn Lynch just walked into the #Packers locker room to congratulate Aaron Rodgers. Can’t say I’ve seen that before— Patrick Finley (@patrickfinley) January 13, 2020In unique Marshawn Lynch fashion, the running back just entered the Packers’ locker room for a jersey exchange with Aaron Rodgers. They’re signing one another’s game uniforms.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) January 13, 2020Marshawn Lynch just walked into the #Packers locker room with his jersey. He gave fellow Cal alum Aaron Rodgers a big hug. Rodgers took his jersey from his locker and they just went down a hallway to presumably exchange and share some words.— Matt Schneidman (@mattschneidman) January 13, 2020If Sunday was Lynch’s last game, then he will finish his career with 85 regular-season rushing touchdowns and 12 postseason rushing touchdowns.He will also go down as one of the most popular athletes in the history of Seattle, largely for his ability to come off as genuine in an industry that sometimes lacks authentic personalities. In that way, his potentially final words as a player were fitting.last_img read more

Derek Jeter is a Hall of Famer, so here are six things that made Jeter, Jeter

first_imgIt almost seems like a dirty, wrong thing to say in 2020, but here it goes: Derek Jeter was actually a great player. And now he’s a Hall of Fame one.Isn’t that just gross? “The Captain” and his five rings (of which the Yankees have 27, in case a Bombers fan hasn’t reminded you in the last 15 minutes), are going to be forever immortalized within the walls of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.  The thing about Jeter, and it’s no secret, is that he’s equal parts great player and New York media and fan hype byproduct. We all know that baseball isn’t an individual game. You can’t measure individual success on team achievements, but Jeter was a big part of the Yankees dynasty of the ’90s, something that we may have to wait a long time to see again. And while Jeter was indeed a great player, the deifying of No. 2 seems to be a bit, shall we say, excessive.MORE: Nolan Arenado feels disrespected by RockiesJeter’s 72.4 bWAR, his 3,465 hits, his championship rings and his jump throws to first are all good enough reasons to put him in the Hall of Fame on his first ballot, after all.But, jeez. Aren’t you just tired of hearing about Derek Jeter? I mean, we get it! He’s really handsome! He was a superstar in New York! He never got into trouble! What a Goodie 2-Shoes. A real teacher’s pet type. Gag me.But there is, after all, only one Jeter: a lightning rod for criticism and a god among New York sports fans all the same. He was the consummate professional. He gave the media nothin’ while giving the fans everything he had. And that’s what makes Jeter, Jeter.There are many on-field moments that made Jeter what he is, and there are some off-the-field things that add fuel to his myth. The 3,000th hit, The Flip, the gift baskets, the lexicon of supermodels and actresses he’s dated, his SNL skits and his “Seinfeld” appearance are some things that didn’t make the cut.So, without further ado, here are six moments that made Derek Jeter Derek Jeter with a hearty helping of Jeter fatigue, a dash of sarcasm and a sincere congrats:6. He was actually decent in ‘The Other Guys.’Good thing Jeter is (moderately) better at playing shortstop than he is acting.In the 2010 comedy “The Other Guys,” the Yankees shortstop has a pretty small part, but it’s a memorable one: hot-headed New York cop Terry Hoitz, played by noted Boston guy Mark Wahlberg, plants a bullet into Jeter’s leg. “You dick! I’m Derek Jeter, you shot me!” Jeter yells in agony.But that’s not the last we see of the him. In a deleted scene, Jeter warns of a bigger plot afoot, and that Hoitz was actually framed for the shooting.There’s something ironic about Jeter warning about the evils of multi-millionaires, but I can’t quite put my finger on it.Ah, well.5. This commercial with George Steinbrenner.But long before Jeter stole the show in “The Other Guys,” a short commercial clearly showcased his acting abilities.This might come as a surprise, but not everyone loves Derek Jeter. In fact, one guy who kinda owned the Yankees for a long time questioned Jeter’s commitment to the game in the early 2000s.”(George Steinbrenner’s) the boss and he’s entitled to his opinion, right or wrong, but what he said has been turned into me being this big party animal,” Jeter told AP writer Steve Wilstein in 2001, via ESPN. “He even made a reference to one birthday party. That’s been turned into that I’m like Dennis Rodman now.”I don’t think that’s fair. I have no problems with people criticizing how I play. But it bothers me when people question my work ethic. That’s when you’re talking about my integrity. I take a lot of pride in how hard I work. I work extremely hard in the offseason. I work extremely hard during the season to win. My priorities are straight.”Side note: Being compared to Dennis Rodman, a man who vows to bridge the gap between the U.S. and North Korea, isn’t a bad thing, DEREK!Jeter, obviously, resented the thought. No one could work harder than The Captain. (No one out-dated the Captain, either, apparently.)Well, the drama slipped away like a ball under the glove of a diving Jeter, and the Captain and The Boss got together for a pretty memorable Visa commercial that played on Jeter and Steinbrenner’s short-lived, early 2000s feud. The commercial included some of Jeter’s “hard-partying” ways (and no lines).Jeter, being the marketable superstar he is, was also endorsed by Gatorade, Nike’s Jordan brand and Ford in his career, because, surely, the 10-year, $189 million contract he signed in 2001 just wasn’t enough money for him.An aside: If Visa truly is “everywhere you want to be,” then Jeter should have put a credit card to his left on the infield dirt.4. The infamous ‘Shortstops’ picture.Oh, boy. Hide your significant others. Cover the kids’ eyes. This photo is a de-pantsing away from being a Playgirl centerfold. This famous shirtless shortstops photo, including A-Rod & Jeter, was taken this week, 20 years ago (📷 by Walter Iooss/SI) pic.twitter.com/IL2gABi4Sw— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) February 13, 2017I would love to know how the pitch for this came about: SI: Hey, Derek. We’d love to have you in for a photo shoot. DJ: OK, do you have more details?SI: You’ll be there with A-Rod.DJ: Gee, I don’t know—SI: Also, you’ll be wearing white pants. In a white studio.DJ: Guys, let me think about—SI: And shirtless.​ With A-Rod.(We’re beginning to see where the Jeter-Rodriguez relationship went south.)Jeter (far right), shirtless, was flanked by equally as shirtless future teammate Alex Rodriguez, Edgar Renteria, Rey Ordonez and Alex Gonzalez — all hot topics in the ’90s. Alex Rodriguez would go on to become the greatest player in this picture, with Jeter somewhere in second place.Interestingly enough, one of these guys is now a somewhat beloved voice for the biggest sports network on TV and the other is a former shortstop who some feel has disgraced himself with his post-playing day activities.How times change.3. ‘Mr. November.’Of course, the first time in baseball history there were November playoffs, Jeter was at the forefront of it all. Jeter having a dumb “Mr. November” nickname is as good a reason as any to not play baseball in November.In the 2001 World Series, Jeter sent the Yankees to a Game 5 with a walk-off home run off Byung-Hyun Kim, but it was the iconic call from the current voice of the Yankees, Michael Kay, that really cemented Jeter’s legacy.The next time the World Series would creep into November would be 2009, when the Yankees were, once again, a participant, and once again came home with a championship ring. No more November baseball, please.2. His last Yankee Stadium at-bat.Of course, in typical Jeterian fashion, his last hit was a walk-off hit, giving Yankee fans one last bullet in the neverending debate of why Da Captain was so clutch.His last hit, a walk-off single, was eerily Jeter-esque; a little poke on and inside-out swing to right field, an image burned into the retinas of baseball fans everywhere. Pull a baseball, Derek.I mean, this is bad Hollywood cliché writing, so of course Jeter had to cash in. The only thing that could have made it worse is if his Core 4 teammates were there to take it in, too.Oh. Oh, wait.Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera were there, like Force Ghosts from “Star Wars,” ready to hand Jeter his AARP card and probably congratulate him or something. It was like seeing the three specters from “A Christmas Carol.”By the way, can we give some credit to former Yankee great Antoan Richardson for hustling around the bases to score for ol’ Jetes? Or does Jeter get all the credit for a weakly hit single that wouldn’t have scored anyone less fast?Anyways, Jeter got his moment, but the Yankees wouldn’t make the playoffs, finishing third in the division. The Red Sox would go on to win it all once again, their third title since 2004. So, ha! Take that, nerds!1. That stupid play.Oh, you know the one. Not the flip one. The other one.The one that was played on “SportsCenter” ad infinitum like an early 2000s Backstreet Boys hit on pop radio. The play that you were wowed by the first time you saw it, but then realized upon further viewings that it was just OK, like the last “Star Wars” movie.”That stupid play that you were force-fed from MLB Network and Twitter, the one you endured over and over again leading up to his Hall of Fame induction. The one where Jeter’s face lost a fight to an empty chair.Sure, Jeter made a great catch in one of the most memorable regular season games between the Yankees and Red Sox fans of the past 20 years. But let’s not forget that Pokey Reese made arguably a more difficult catch just a few innings earlier.So, of course, selfish Derek Jeter has to outdo Reese. So how does he do it? By jumping into the stands and belly-flopping onto a sea of New Yorkers. Talk about pandering. The crowd surfing plan didn’t go as well as he’d hoped.Debate the play all you want, but the shot of Jeter emerging from the stands is iconic. It was like that scene in “Spider-Man 2” when all the New Yorkers crowd-surf Peter Parker’s body. Just not as cool. Not nearly as cool, in fact. Like Poseidon, Jeter exiting the swath of blue-clad fans like a conquering hero, face cut up and bloodied, is the enduring image of No. 2, thankfully supplanting the shirtless one from above.We’re still going to need a Sports Science segment on whether Jeter could have stopped. The guy isn’t a freight train barreling down on a Volkswagen Beetle at a track crossing. Slide. Veer away. Hit the brakes, man.Congrats, Jeter.last_img read more

Iowa’s 43rd governor to take oath for four-year term today

first_imgYou can hear coverage of the inaugural ceremonies at 9:00 AM this morning on AM-1300 KGLO as we’ll join coverage from Iowa Public Television DES MOINES — Later this morning, Governor Kim Reynolds will take the oath of office for a four-year term.“It’s very humbling,” Reynolds told Radio Iowa recently. “I’m really honored and humbled. It’s a privilege to get to do this. I’m just really excited.”When Reynolds raises her right hand, she will rest her other hand on the same Bible she used on May 24, 2017. That’s when Reynolds took over as governor in the middle of a four-year term.“It’s my Bible from confirmation, way back when,” she said during a Radio Iowa interview earlier this month.Reynolds plans to wear a bracelet with the imprint of a Bible verse, too. It’s a gift from her daughters.“The girls gave me a really, really nice, neat little inspirational bracelet the night of the election,” Reynolds said.She’s now the first woman to be elected by Iowans to be governor. Her inaugural address is scheduled to start sometime between 10:15 and 10:30. Reynolds reached today’s milestone by defeating a Democratic challenger by about three percent — the closest race for governor in 62 years.“How grateful I am to be given the opportunity to lead,” Reynolds told Radio Iowa. “It’s not something that I’m taking lightly.”Former State Senator Maggie Tinsman of Bettendorf is the co-founder of 50-50 in 2020, a group dedicated to helping elect women. And Tinsman is thrilled about today.“Women know how to bring people together and solve the problem,” Tinsman said. “That’s what politics is — problem solving.”Tinsman predicts Reynolds will set an example that will encourage other women to run for political office.“When you have the top leader be a female, it means other women will think: ‘Well, maybe I could do that,’” Tinsman said.There are a variety of events on today’s schedule. In addition to this morning’s “swearing in” ceremony, there’s an open house at the governor’s mansion starting at noon. An open house at the state capitol starts at 2 p.m.Attendance at the two inaugural balls in Des Moines this evening could be affected by the snow that’s in the forecast. That’s a “little bit” of a worry to the governor.“But we’re in Iowa, so we’re hearty,” Reynolds told reporters at the statehouse yesterday. “…I know if I bought a dress and shoes and was ready to go, I’d probably do everything I could — while being safe — to get to the ball, so hopefully it won’t be too bad and we’ll have a good turn-out.”A waiting list developed for tickets to the inaugural ball that will be held at the convention center in downtown Des Moines, so a second ball will be held in a venue nearby. Last night, a service of dedication was held at the Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines, “which is, honestly, one of my favorite parts,” Reynolds said yesterday.“And then, we’ll get sworn in and go have a party. How about that? Go have a ball.”State Representative Joel Fry is from Osceola, the town Reynolds has called home since the early 1990s.“There’s a lot of excitement in Osceola…plenty of people coming up for enjoy the festivities,” Fry said yesterday. “People know her well. She was our (Clarke County) Treasurer for many years, so she’s know from the courthouse perspective, but also known as a community member. Her children went to school there, so they’re all known in the community as well.”Fry calls the weather forecast “iffy” and admits it could cause problems tonight for people from the southern Iowa community who bought tickets for one of the inaugural balls.last_img read more

State Ag Department taking comments on hemp growing rules

first_imgDES MOINES — Iowa Agriculture Secretary Mike Naig says the department is now taking public comments on the state’s proposed hemp production regulations.Naig says they’ve received a lot of questions already about industrial hemp.  “I think there’s been a real interest looking for additional opportunities and opportunities to diversify,”Naig says. “Hemp really probably has been the top of mine or the crop that’s been getting a lot of focus after the 2018 Farm Bill cleared the way.”The proposed administrative rules that will regulate the planting, growing and harvesting of commercial hemp.  “We’ve been working the better part of the last year to get our program ready to launch here so folks can participate in that market in the 2020 growing season,” according to Naig.Comments on the proposes rules will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on January 22nd. It is not legal to grow, possess, buy or sell hemp in Iowa until the U.S.D.A. approves the state plan.Naig says hemp isn’t the only crop he sees as an opportunity for ag diversification in 2020. “I’ve also seen just continued interest in local foods. Local and regional foods, food hubs, community supported agriculture — a real interest in consumers knowing more about where their food comes from,” Naig says. “So, we continue to think there’s opportunity there as well.”He says growing food for regional use has a lot things that make it attractive. “The Ag Census actually showed that the number of small farms is increasing dramatically –and it’s a good thing when you look at the opportunity to get into produce and to supply local food — you don’t need significant acres to get started. You don’t need a significant number of acres to make a living and to have a real thriving business,” Naig says.To read Iowa’s proposed hemp administrative rules, go to the Iowa Department of Agriculture’s website at: https://iowaagriculture.gov/.last_img read more

Iowa House and Senate give solar bill unanimous support

first_imgDES MOINES — The Iowa legislature has sent the governor a compromise bill on solar energy.Last year, utilities sought permission to charge new fees to customers with solar panels on their homes or businesses. The bill now calls for studying the value of solar power starting in 2027 and establishes some alternative billing methods. Representative Gary Carlson, a Republican from Muscatine, says the compromise was developed by representatives of the state’s electric utilities, pork producers and the solar industry.“It’s gratifying to see that the groups came together and have come with a solution that’s good not only for the growth of the solar industry and utilities, but for Iowans,” Carlson says.Last year Republican Senator Michael Breitbach of Strawberry Point was the lead advocate for charging new fees to customers who tap into the electric power grid when their solar panels aren’t producing power. Breitbach says this year’s deal gives some certainty to solar customers.“It also gives us a pathway forward on how the determination will be on the value of solar,” he says.Senator Eric Giddens, a Democrat from Cedar Falls, says solar power helps reduce reliance on fossil fuels for electricity.“It will strengthen the solar industry in this state, make distributed solar installations more affordable for homeowners, businesses and farmers,” he says.The bill passed the House unanimously Tuesday and the Senate passed it 48-to-zero Wednesday afternoon.last_img read more

Hamilton suffers Bahrain blow with five-place grid penalty

first_imgSakhir, Bahrain | AFP | Lewis Hamilton will take a five-place grid penalty in Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix following a gearbox change on his Mercedes late Friday in another early season setback for the world champion.The British star had wound up fourth fastest earlier in Friday’s second free practice session at the Bahrain International Circuit.“@LewisHamilton will take a five-place grid penalty for the #BahrainGP after having to change his gearbox,” tweeted Mercedes.Kimi Raikkonen was fastest as he and Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel dominated the session ahead of the two Mercedes, headed by Valtteri Bottas.Hamilton’s setback in his bid to overhaul Vettel’s early-season lead in the title race –- following his victory in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix –- was confirmed by the International Motoring Federation (FIA), the sport’s ruling body.Bottas also had a new gearbox fitted on Friday evening, but escaped a grid penalty because he had already been penalised in Australia.Four-time world champion Hamilton, who created a minor controversy when he showed his approval on social media earlier in the day of the retention of grid girls at the Monaco Grand Prix, said before his penalty had been announced that it had been “a normal Friday”.“It’s very close and we have some work to do. The tyres feel the best they have here in years, very stable with less degradation.”Mercedes technical director James Allison said after Friday practice that the team were not as competitive in relation to Ferrari as they had been in Melbourne. “The base for us is ok, but we don’t have the edge we had in Melbourne.”Raikkonen had escaped a grid penalty of his own as he clocked a best lap time of one minute and 29.817 seconds to outpace four-time champion Vettel by 0.011 seconds.Raikkonen, however, faced a post-race investigation into a possible unsafe release of his car, by Ferrari, following a routine pit-stop late in the session.He pulled away, but then saw his pit crew waving their arms and pulled up at the side of the track.It was feared he would be punished for an unsafe release -– because his front right wheel was not attached properly –- and given a grid penalty, but instead Ferrari were fined 5,000 euros.The race stewards said they felt Ferrari had done all they could to minimise the risk of the wheel coming off the car.Bottas was happy to bounce back after his confidence-sapping crash in qualifying in Australia two weeks ago.He said: “There is always pressure and I am treating this like a normal weekend. Here the track improves all the time, with more grip every lap.“The car felt ok, but we need to find some more pace especially on a single lap.”Dutchman Max Verstappen, who missed the first session due to a power failure, was fifth for Red Bull ahead of team-mate Daniel Ricciardo.Verstappen said: “We had a small issue this morning — these things happen so it doesn’t concern me too much.“I lost a lot of track time, but come race day it will depend a lot on strategy.”Nico Hulkenberg was seventh for Renault ahead of the Toro Rosso of Pierre Gasly and the two McLarens of two-time champion Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne.Share on: WhatsApp “It wasn’t our best day,” he said. “We’ve got more to do overnight and in the practice tomorrow (Saturday) to five us a car that can fight in qualifying and on Sunday.last_img read more

Refugee team to compete at Tokyo 2020 Olympics – IOC

first_imgBuenos Aires, Argentina | AFP | A team of refugees will again take part at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, the International Olympic Committee said on Tuesday, after 10 refugees competed at the Rio Games.The decision was approved at the 133rd IOC meeting in Buenos Aires.Deputy general director Pere Miro, who is in charge of relations with national Olympic committees, said the IOC “has identified 51 athletes living in refugee camps or in refugee conditions”.Among those 51 athletes were the 10 who participated in Rio, he added.Yiech Pur Biel, a middle-distance runner from South Sudan, is hopeful of more than simply making up the numbers after falling in the heats of the 800m in Rio. “We can expect much, in 2016 just we competed, now we are going not only to compete, if we can bring gold or even a final…” he said.“Competing with top athletes is a big challenge, but we hope we will do something in Tokyo 2020.”Two swimmers who fled Syria, a pair of Congolese judokas, an Ethiopian marathon runner and four middle-distance runners from South Sudan, as well as a 400m runner, were part of the refugee team that made its debut in Rio.The group of 51 athletes in contention for a spot in Tokyo are supported by the Olympic Solidarity programme and come from seven different sports, including karate and taekwondo.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
