Preview: LA Galaxy 2014

Mar 7, 2014

March 7, 2014

The MLS season started with a bang for the LA Galaxy. They were beginning their season against their arch-rivals and 2013 Western League Champions Real Salt Lake. For the LA Galaxy, this was much more than just a game and it was much more than just the beginning of another season. They finished last season with so many questions that needed to be answered. One of their biggest questions was, “How long was it going to take Landon Donovan to break the regular season scoring record?” He finished the last season tied with Jeff Cunningham and people were asking if this was going to be a distraction for the Galaxy.

Another question that was going to be answered throughout the season was how well were the Galaxy reinforcements, Rob Friend (F), Baggio Husidic (M), Stefan Ishizaki (M), James Riley (D), Samuel (F), were going to mesh with the current squad. One of the Galaxy’s Achilles heel from last year was the lack of depth in their roster. The previous season, it seemed that no one was really able to come off the bench and have any real impact. The lack of depth was really shown when a starter would miss a start due to injury or suspension, Galaxy couldn’t really fill the hole. Depth seemed a priority for the Galaxy because they signed five free agents. The team needs these new reinforcements to have an impact because not only are the Galaxy in the CONCACAF Champions League but they will lose players during her World Cup this summer. Theses reinforcements need to make an impact immediately.

One final question was how well would Galaxy’s defense hold up this season. Last season, the Galaxy couldn’t defend set plays and they’d lose their defensive composure in the final 15 minutes of games. They let go of many points in the final 15 minutes of games. This year, they again got a defensive reinforcement and they were going to start the season with one of MLS’s best goalkeeper, Jaime Penedo. Last season, when he signed with the Galaxy after the Gold Cup, Galaxy’s defense improved. This season, he was going to try to do the same.

Interceptor e Interceptor Deluxe

Feb 20, 2014

Honda’s iconic V-4 powerplants have an alluring character all their own, a unique combination of torque, an aggressive rush of power as the tach needle swings up into the meaty part of the powerband, and a certain texture to the engine feel that tells you this could only be a Honda V-4. The new Interceptor® has all of that and more, including a chassis with that special Honda blend of agility and comfort that strikes an ideal balance for all-day rides on your favorite twisting roads. A stout single-side swingarm and radial-mounted front brakes make sport riding especially fun, and a front-mounted radiator gives the Interceptor a slim profile. To ensure long-term comfort, the Interceptor has upright, neutral ergonomics as well as an adjustable seat. This is a sport bike with plenty of emphasis on sport, plus the versatility for commuting, two-up fun rides and long-haul sport touring. The Deluxe model adds ABS, Traction Control, grip heaters, self-canceling turn signals, and a centerstand for riders wanting even more features.

México 4 vs. 0 Corea: Internacional Amistoso.

Jan 30, 2014


San Antonio, TX. BereaVision-Como todas las cosas tienen su tiempo, llego la hora del silbato inicial, y así el Arbitro Central Hector Rodriguez, da inicio al encuentro de la noche, en los primeros minutos pocas llegadas al arco, por ambas partes.Minuto 8, por la banda derecha , el capitán del Equipo Coreano, camisa #11 Lee, envía un tiro de derecha, fuera del área, el cual pasa por arriba de la portería de Talavera.Al 11′ Isaac Brizuela entra al área y manda la diagonal de la muerte, a la cual Uribe no alcanza a llegar, y el balón se va por la linea de meta.Nuevamente el Capitán sudcoreano Lee, el cual esta siendo el “coco”de la zaga Mexicana, dispara dentro del área,y Talavera alcanza a desviar. En el 23′ falta casi cerca del tiro de esquina, por parte de los Mexicanos, tiro directo y el #4 Kang logra conectar un cabezazo, el cual sale ligeramente desviado, ante la mirada atonita de Talavera.Al minuto 26 tiro de esquina, en favor de los Coreanos, el #16 Kim remata de cabeza, el cual alcanza a desviar el portero Talavera.Alan Pulido entra al área, quiso enviar un centro, ya sin ángulo, pudo haber disparado a la portería.

Corría el minuto 36 y Ponce #16,manda un centro por la banda izquierda, el cual Uribe Peralta logra controlar y da la media vuelta y a pierna derecha la envía a las redes, ante el lance infructuoso del portero Coreano Kim.El cual mira el balón en las redes y dice “Kim fue”. Mexico 1 Corea 0.Ya para finalizar el medio tiempo, se marca una falta por el lado izquierdo, cerca del tiro de esquina, centro al área, cabezazo de Mexico, que llega al Gulli Peña, el cual encuentra a Alan Pulido #11 el cual remata en dos ocasiones, y así el balón se va nuevamente a las redes.Mexico 2 Corea 0.Da inicio al Segundo tiempo con tres cambios por parte del cuadro Mexicano:#10 Luis Montes;#20 Torres Nilo y #6 Juan Carlos Valenzuela.Ya para el minuto 54 entra por parte de Mexico:con el #5 Enrique Perez;#17 Jesus Zavala y con el #9 Aldo de Nigris.

Poco a poco se va armando el equipo, los cambios empiezan a funcionar, corren por la recuperación del balón, arman buenas jugadas y así al minuto 85, Luis Montes #10,se vapor la banda izquierda, dejando Coreanos a su paso y ya dentro del area, la pone ahi, en el lugar preciso, para que aparezca, nuevamente Alan Pulido y le ponga la firma, así de esta manera Mexico anota el tercer gol de la.noche, y el segundo para la cuenta personal de Alan Pulido, quien voltea a celebrar con sus compañeros, con “cara de yo si fui”.La alegría en las tribunas, Mexico 3 – Corea del Sur 0. Nuevamente Mexico, llega hasta la portería contraria, al minuto 88 y después de dos tiros al arco y tras el rechace del portero, llega Alan Pulido y le pone la cereza al pastel Mexico 4 -Corea del Sur 0. Así con ese marcador termina el partido, que al DT. Miguel Herrera, le deja un grato sabor de boca, al ver que los convocados para este encuentro, le “llenaron el ojo”,como el mismo lo comento en rueda de prensa.

Así como dijo que por el momento, quiere disfrutar este momento, este triunfo.Que debido a la falta de tiempo, todo a sido apresurado, pero que los muchachos entendieron lo que el quería de ellos, y se adaptaron al sistema. Así mismo no quiso adelantar nombres, de los convocados “Europeos” para el próximo encuentro, que será en el mes de Marzo, por que considero que aun falta tiempo para ese encuentro, y que se le hacia una falta de respeto, el mencionar a alguien del ellos. Así de esta forma Mexico, a logrado pasar la primera prueba de una buena manera, aun faltan otras dos pruebas por pasar, la cual será en contra de Nigeria y la tercera en contra de Ecuador.

A comenzado así la preparación, de la Selección Mexicana, con miras al Mundial Brasil 2014.El cual siempre es reconfortante iniciar con una buena victoria. “En hora buena”.

It’s Official: Justin Allgaier to Drive No. 51 for Phoenix Racing

Jan 28, 2014

January 21, 2014 . Phoenix, Arizona.

Phoenix Racing announced today that Justin Allgaier will be the driver of the No. 51 BRANDT Chevrolet SS during the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. Allgaier, who finished fifth in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series championship points, will be a candidate for the NASCAR Rookie of the Year award.
“This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I intend to make the most of it,” said Allgaier. “I am very grateful to Harry Scott and BRANDT for having faith in me to compete against the best drivers in the world.”
“Justin has worked extremely hard to get to this level and he is ready to take the next step,” said team owner Harry Scott Jr. “Working with competition director and crew chief Steve Addington, I think the No. 51 can turn some heads this year.”
BRANDT will be the primary sponsor for the No. 51 for 21 races during the 2014 season. The agriculture retailer and manufacturer of agricultural specialty products has been active in NASCAR since 2011 and sponsored the No. 51 for four races in 2013.
“The entire BRANDT team is excited about moving to the next level,” explained Rick Brandt, company president and CEO. “We looked long and hard at this opportunity and ultimately we decided that we needed the broader footprint that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series affords us to drive our business forward. This is about taking our brand to the millions of fans who watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.”
Joining BRANDT on the car are The National FFA, TradeMark Nitrogen, Nutrients for Life Foundation, Precision Tank and Grigg Brothers. Together, these partners are supporting the only true ag-focused car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
“We are proud to help field the ‘Ag’ car,” said Brandt. “This is an effort to raise awareness and build a positive reputation for agriculture of all kinds. We believe passionately that agriculture is the essential industry and we’re doing our part to get that message out.”
“I could not be more proud to represent BRANDT, a leading company that’s headquartered about 13 miles from where I grew up, as we make the leap to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,” said Allgaier.
Allgaier, 27, joins Bobby Labonte as teammates at Phoenix Racing. Labonte will drive the No. 52 for several races in 2014, including the season-opening Daytona 500. Labonte has won 21 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races in his 22-year career and won the series championship in 2000.

SUPER BOWL XLVIII: SEATTLE SEAHAWKS VS. DENVER BRONCOS

Jan 27, 2014

SUPER BOWL XLVIII: SEATTLE SEAHAWKS VS. DENVER BRONCOS

 

Two teams. One game. It all comes down to this.

 

On Sunday, February 2, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will meet in Super Bowl XLVIII (6:25 PM ET, FOX) at MetLife Stadium in the first outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl.

 

For only the second time in the past 20 seasons, the game will feature the No. 1 seed in each conference (Super Bowl XLIV: New Orleans vs. Indianapolis in the 2009 season).

 

“It doesn’t happen like this too often when both No. 1 seeds make it,” says Seahawks Pro Bowl cornerback RICHARD SHERMAN. “It’s a testament to the hard work of both teams and I’m sure it’s going to be a fantastic game.”

 

Super Bowl XLVIII will pit the NFL’s top offense (Denver) against the league’s best defense (Seattle).

 

“We wouldn’t have it any other way,” says Sherman. “They’re an unbelievable record-setting offense with a Hall of Fame quarterback (PEYTON MANNING). That’s as tough as it gets. The No. 1 defense against the No. 1 offense.”

 

The Broncos led the NFL with 606 points scored while the Seahawks allowed a league-low 231 points. Since the 1970 merger, this is only the fifth Super Bowl – and first since 1990 (Super Bowl XXV) – in which the league’s highest-scoring team faced the club that allowed the fewest points.

Denver topped the NFL by gaining 7,317 total yards (457.3 per game) while Seattle allowed 4,378 (273.6 per game), the fewest in the league. This is only the second Super Bowl since the 1970 merger matching up the league’s top offense against the NFL’s best defense in terms of total yardage.

“It’s the Super Bowl, so it’s going to be tough,” says Denver Pro Bowl tight end JULIUS THOMAS. “Nothing is going to come easy. This is for all the marbles, so I’m pretty sure it will be a tough game all around.”

 

The Seahawks and Broncos both advanced to Super Bowl XLVIII with home wins on Championship Game weekend. Seattle defeated San Francisco 23-17 and Denver knocked off New England 26-16. The two games averaged 53.7 million viewers, joining 2011 as the most-watched Conference Championship Sunday in more than 30 years.

 

In the NFC Championship Game, the Seahawks erased a 10-point deficit and then held on for a 23-17 win over the division-rival 49ers. It marked the seventh consecutive NFC Championship Game decided by seven points or fewer, the longest such streak in NFL history. Pro Bowl running back MARSHAWN LYNCH rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown to spark the offense and Seattle’s vaunted defense forced three turnovers, including an interception in the end zone with 22 seconds remaining to seal the win.

 

“That’s the way we’ve played the whole season,” says Seahawks defensive end MICHAEL BENNETT, who had a sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in the game. “These guys are relentless. All we do is practice turnovers on defense and we wanted to be in that situation where the game was on our backs.”

 

Lynch, who is the only player to rush for at least 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons, has four 100-yard rushing performances in six career postseason games, including both games in 2013. Quarterback RUSSELL WILSON has won 27 games – including the playoffs – in his first two seasons and can join KURT WARNERTOM BRADY and BEN ROETHLISBERGER as the only quarterbacks to win a Super Bowl in his first or second season.

 

“To get to the Super Bowl, we’re excited about it,” says Wilson. “But at the end of the day, we haven’t done anything yet. We won the NFC West, which was one of our goals. We won the NFC Championship Game, which isn’t easy. But only one team gets the prize. That’s what we’re focused on and we’re moving on to play the Denver Broncos.”

 

During the regular season, the Seahawks led the NFL in points allowed (231), total defense (273.6 yards per game) and pass defense (172.0 yards per game). Seattle also topped the league in takeaways (39), interceptions (28) and turnover differential (+20). Sherman led the league with eight interceptions – his 20 interceptions since entering the NFL in 2011 are the most during that span – safety EARL THOMAS is the only safety in the past decade to record at least 100 tackles, five interceptions and two forced fumbles in a single season.

 

“As a competitor, you always want to play the best,” says Thomas about the Super Bowl matchup. “We’re here to play. We love football. We know what’s at stake. We know this chance is rare. I’m excited about this.”

 

Sherman (1st) and Thomas (3rd) are two of the six Seahawks who were selected to the Pro Bowl, joining Lynch (4th), Wilson (2nd), safety KAM CHANCELLOR (2nd) and center MAX UNGER (2nd).

 

The Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl with a 26-16 win over the Patriots. Denver will make its seventh Super Bowl appearance, one shy of the record held by Dallas and Pittsburgh. Pro Bowl quarterback PEYTON MANNING completed 32 of 43 passes (74.4 percent) for 400 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions for a 118.4 passer rating in the victory. It marked only the fifth time in NFL postseason history a quarterback threw for at least 400 yards without an interception in a game.

 

“It’s an exciting feeling,” says Manning about advancing to the Super Bowl. “You take a moment to realize that we’ve done something special here and you certainly want to win one more game.”

 

Manning, who was named the MVP of Super Bowl XLI with Indianapolis, can become the sixth player in NFL history to win multiple Super Bowl MVP awardsJOE MONTANA was named Super Bowl MVP three times and TERRY BRADSHAW, Brady, ELI MANNINGand BART STARR have each won it twice.

 

“Peyton Manning is a Hall of Fame quarterback,” says Russell Wilson. “I have a ton of respect for him. I love him to death. He’s a great person and obviously a great football player.”

 

This year, Manning set NFL single-season passing records with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdowns, becoming the first player in league history to pass for at least 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in the same season. He is the fourth quarterback to lead the league in passing yards and touchdowns and advance to the Super Bowl joining DAN MARINO, Warner and Brady.

 

In the AFC Championship Game, the Broncos scored on six consecutive drives (two touchdowns, four field goals), the longest such streak ever recorded in an AFC or NFC Championship Game.

 

During the regular season, Denver scored 606 points, becoming the first team in NFL history to score 600 points in a single season. The Broncos also are the only team in NFL history to have five players each score at least 10 touchdowns in the same season: wide receiver DEMARYIUS THOMAS (14), running back KNOWSHON MORENO (13), tight end Julius Thomas (12) and wide receivers ERIC DECKER (11) and WES WELKER (10). The offense averaged 457.3 yards per game and 340.3 passing yards per game, both the best in the league.

 

“We’ve spread the ball around so well all season, so it’s hard for teams to know who to key on,” says Manning. “On any given play, a number of guys could get the ball. That puts pressure on a defense.”

 

Head coach JOHN FOX, who guided Carolina to Super Bowl XXXVIII, is the sixth head coach to lead two different franchises to the Super Bowl. He knows the challenge that awaits the Broncos in playing the Seahawks.

 

“They’re a great football team,” says Fox about the NFC champions. “(Seattle head coach) PETE CARROLL and his staff have done a terrific job.”

 

“We’re not going to take this challenge lightly,” says Carroll. “We’re going to go after this thing and we’re not going into this game any other way but thinking we’re going to win it. These guys don’t know any other way.”
