Meanwhile, former Tipp All Star Eamon Corcoran says changes to the positioning in the backs and middle of the pitch have made a huge difference this season. The Premier County’s senior hurlers are preparing to take the Road to Croke Park tomorrow in the highly anticipated All Ireland Final against the Cats. It’s the fourth time in six years that the neighbouring counties have met in the final, with Kilkenny coming out on top in the last meeting in 2011. Speaking on Tipp FM’s Road to Croker special last night, former Clare captain Anthony Daly believes that if the team play to the same level as we did against Cork, the chances are good that Liam McCarthy will be coming to Tipp.

The six-year-old Almedin Brkić became a YouTube sensation. His video records nearly seven million views and many people call him the new Lionel Messi.In war year 1994, the Brkić family moved from Prijedor to Canada. Hence, Almedin was born in Ottawa, and he also has an older brother. Almedin became interested in playing football after watching his brother.“I have another son, Muamer. He is older and he began training with Zijo Ništović, who played in Velež and worked in some clubs in former Yugoslavia. Almedin once came to watch them. He asked to come in, but Zijo was reluctant to let him in because he was afraid that the older boys will hurt him,” said Almedin’s father, Nedžad, adding:“We have let him in, to my responsibility. Something incredible happened. I could not believe how he plays, how he sees things and how he behaves on the field. He cannot even dribble the ball much, but he always has a solution when he is on the field. He is already known here in Ottawa”.Nedžad wanted to record his son Almedin while playing in order to get opinions of other people, but very soon his son became an internet sensation and his video was watched nearly seven million times.(Source: vijesti.ba)
Dustin Skinner, the son of former NASCAR star Mike Skinner, has apologized for a troubling post on social media after a noose was found in Bubba Wallace’s garage Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.The post said, in part, “Frankly I wish they would’ve tied [the noose] to [Wallace] and drug him around the pits because he has single handedly destroyed what I grew up watching and cared about for 30 years now.” It appears to be a Facebook comment, and the words have been condemned by the Skinner family. (Screenshot via @CassieFambro) UPDATE: Angie Skinner, the wife of Mike Skinner, wrote an open letter about Dustin’s comments. Angie is not Dustin’s biological mother, but her relationship with Mike made her want to say something.”We pray Dustin changes his views,” Angie writes. “He already broke down, apologized and realized how horrific and hurtful his comments were. He asked what to do and we suggested apologizing and learning from the outburst. Again, we pray that his views change. But it’s up to him to handle. Mike will not stop loving his son because the public demands him to. Mike will promote his positives and hope he continues to grow and love; reminding him of his good qualities and using love and positivity to change his attitude one day at a time.”You can read her full letter here. https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/5/e7/dustin-skinner_5gsil5flkxlv1xe5czhq2431t.png?t=-515378150&w=500&quality=80MORE: Driver pushes Wallace’s car to pit road so he can finish raceDustin Skinner competed in one NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race in 2008. The Race Car Solutions website, owned by Mike Skinner’s other son Jamie, says Dustin Skinner now “has transitioned into success as a driving coach and crew chief.” After his post started to get attention, drawing criticism, Dustin Skinner said his comments were not about race.”I love everyone this was not about race at all,” Skinner wrote. “I disagree with what [Wallace] is doing, but it was stupidly foolish for me to say what I said and I truly regret every bit of it. If there was a way to take last night back I would. All I can do is say I’m sorry. I love everyone and wish the world to pull back together and us all find a positive way to agree or disagree.”Mike Skinner also released a pair of statements on his son’s comments. The first was a single tweet, saying “his views are not the same” as his or his wife’s.Dustin Skinner Is my son and he’s an amazing father and amazing man he’s also a full-grown adult his views are not the same as Angie and myself we support Bubba have his whole career we don’t like what’s going on in our country anymore than anybody else— Mike Skinner (@MSTheGunslinger) June 23, 2020Mike Skinner later released a longer statement saying he was “shocked” by what Dustin wrote. “I am devastated by what he said and have spoken with him regarding his comments,” Skinner said. “While I do not believe in airing family grievances on social media, I feel strongly that it is important I publicly state that his comments do not reflect the opinions of Angie or me, and we apologize to any fans and industry personnel who were hurt because of his comments.”pic.twitter.com/kcxBfisctm— Mike Skinner (@MSTheGunslinger) June 23, 2020The NASCAR community has by in large shown support for Wallace after the noose was discovered Sunday afternoon. NASCAR said Tuesday that the rope in question was a pull rope fashioned like a noose used to open the garage door. It coincided with the FBI’s determination that the rope had been in the garage stall “as early as 2019,” as confirmed by video evidence. Wallace was assigned the stall a week before the Talladega race.Federal authorities had been investigating the incident as a possible civil rights violation, but found “no federal crime was committed.”
By Bruce Fuhr, The Nelson DailyIt’s taken more than five months but former L.V. Roger Bomber Sean Denison has found a home.The Bomber grad recently inked a trial contract with Spartak Primorje of the BEKO Professional Basketball League in Russia.“I’m excited to be playing again,” Denison told The Nelson Daily from Russia.“The team plays very unstructured offensively and has a run and gun style which is just perfect for me.”“It will be interesting to see how this season plays out,” adds the 26-year-old Denison.Denison has been on hold since leaving Eisbaeren Bremerhaven of the German Bundesliga in the spring.The 6’11”, 245-pound center/forward decided his former club was not the answer to his career.So taking the free agent route Denison waited until his agent found another team, most likely in Europe.However, when NBA Commissioner David Stern and his owner pals decided to lockout the players, there was gluten of NBA players on the market looking to keep busy.“The lockout played a part but it wasn’t just that, my last season wasn’t as good as it could have been,” Denison explained. “There’s no telling all of the factors involved but this year it took longer to find something good.”Spartak Primorje plays in Vladivostok, a city of 600,000. Vladivostok is the administrative center of Primorsky Krai, Russia, situated at the head of the Golden Horn Bay, which is not far from Russia’s borders with China and North Korea.Spartak Primorje, 4-4, has been on the road but returns home for a game against Spartak after suffering losses to Triumph 92-82 and Lokomotiv-Kuban 79-72.Denison, who played in Turkey after graduating and playing four seasons of NCAA Division One Men’s Basketball with the Santa Clara Broncos, has spent most of the fall training at LVR with Bombers.However, prior to Christmas an early present came in from his agent.“The contract came up kind of fast as my agent told me about the team being interested and the situation looked good so I responded immediately letting them know I was interested too,” Denison said.“From there it was just a matter of getting my visa organized (the Russian embassy was closed for holidays at the time) and getting over there.“From the time I signed the contract it still took a couple weeks to get here just because I had to get a new passport in order to process my visa.”The BEKO PBL, in its second year of play, is the top league in Russian. The league has 10 teams and sports former Utah Jazz star Andrei Kirilenko, who signed a deal with CSKA Moscow in the fall.So there is little time for Denison to make an impression with the coaching staff.“The wait was worth it but I’m definitely happy to be playing again.”
