Filipinos winless in Pacquiao-Broner undercard as Jayar Inson drops split decision

https://twitter.com/MayweatherPromo/status/1086798868451287041 MANILA, Philippines---The Philippines went 0-2 in the undercard of Manny Pacquiao's title defense against Adrien Broner Sunday (Manila time) at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

San Miguel calls out Alaska’s Alex Compton for ‘kawawa ang liga’ remark

MANILA, Philippines---San Miguel cried foul over what it called "unnecessary remarks" by Alaska Aces head coach Alex Compton regarding the Beermen's recruits over the past years. Compton, whose Aces lost three championship series to the Beermen since 2014, said San Miguel's acquisition of three-time scoring champion Terrence Romeo put all the other teams at a disadvantage. "There was San Miguel for three finals, and June Mar Fajardo was always an issue," said Compton in a previous Inquirer report. "Then they added Christian [Standhardinger] and now they added Terrence [Romeo]. Kawawa ang liga." San Miguel rebutted Compton saying that the Aces also traded away "competent play...Keep on reading: San Miguel calls out Alaska’s Alex Compton for ‘kawawa ang liga’ remark.....»»

Bayan Muna presses DOE oil data to fight overpricing

MANILA, Philippines --- As consumers braced for higher oil prices and a new round of excise tax on fuel products, lawmakers urged the Department of Energy (DOE) to release its "long overdue" memorandum itemizing oil prices in the country to identify overpricing companies.   Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi ordered the unbundling of prices of petroleum products in June 2018. The proposal faced strong opposition from oil firms, who argued that it is not needed in a deregulated market.   Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Zarate and Bayan Muna chair Neri Colmenares said Thursday the memorandum could help consumers facing increasing oil prices and the implementation of the second tr...Keep on reading: Bayan Muna presses DOE oil data to fight overpricing.....»»

Sooners QB, A s pick Kyler Murray declares for NFL draft

By Cliff Brunt, Associated Press Kyler Murray, the first-round Major League Baseball draft pick and Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma quarterback, declared himself eligible for the NFL draft on Monday. Murray announced his decision in a tweet, ending his brief and storied college career. What's next for the Murray is not yet known. I have declared for the NFL Draft. — Kyler Murray (@TheKylerMurray) January 14, 2019 The Oakland Athletics made the speedy outfielder the ninth overall selection last June and agreed to $4.66 million signing bonus. The A's agreed to let him continue playing football, and he made the most of it by winning the Heisman in his only season as a starter for the Sooners. He passed for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns and ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in FBS history. As Murray dominated, his draft stock improved. Jim Callis, a senior writer on MLB.com, said the A's couldn't have foreseen that Murray would be a potential first-round NFL draft pick because of his size. Listed at 5-10 and 195 pounds, Murray would be a small quarterback in the NFL by any standard. "The primary risk was, what if he gets hurt on the football field?" Callis said, recalling his conversations with scouts before the season. "I don't think anybody was saying he could be an NFL first-round pick." Once the NFL emerged as a potential option for Murray, the A's took action. Representatives of the A's and Major League Baseball met Sunday with Murray, and the possibility existed that Oakland could offer more money by putting him on the 40-man major league roster. Even with the A's efforts, Murray would have a shot at a bigger payday sooner in football and he wouldn't have to go to the minor leagues. Callis and other observers say it is very unlikely Murray will be able to play both sports because he's a quarterback. Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders pulled it off, but Jackson was an outfielder and a running back and Sanders was an outfielder and cornerback. "This isn't Bo Jackson showing up and here, we'll pitch you the ball and you outrun everybody, or Deion Sanders helicoptering in and his great speed, coverage skills," Callis said. "When you're a quarterback, you have to put in hours and hours of study running an offense. ... You can't play both sports when you're a quarterback. I think if he wants to play quarterback, which appears to be his greatest love, there can't be any question that he's 100 percent football." Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in November that if anyone could play both sports, it's Murray. "I don't want to put it past him," Riley said. " A lot of people would say he can't do what he's done right now — how well he performed for our baseball group here this spring, and how well he's played here for us. So there's certainly some different dynamics with it. Obviously the fact that he would want to play quarterback, if he chooses the football route, is a little different than Deion or Bo or some of those guys. But he athletically is so gifted and can transition between the two." The NFL scouting combine is in late February and early March and could intersect with his spring training — major league camp starts in mid-February and minor league camp begins in early March. If Murray wanted to participate in the combine, the A's would need to allow it and it would need to be reflected on his contract. Murray's road to his NFL draft choice was a winding one from his prep days in suburban Dallas. After a disappointing freshman season in football at Texas A&M in 2015, he transferred to Oklahoma. He sat out a year because of transfer rules, then was the backup during Baker Mayfield's Heisman-winning 2017 season. Murray then had an impressive enough baseball season in 2018 to draw the A's attention. Callis said Murray is somewhat like a faster version of outfielder Andrew McCutchen. After he was drafted, Murray took batting practice at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, greeted by "WELCOME TO OAKLAND" on the big scoreboard with his photo. A's manager Bob Melvin, executive Billy Beane and general manager David Forst closely followed Oklahoma football this season as the Sooners reached the College Football Playoff, losing to Alabama in a semifinal. As recently as last month, the A's said they expected Murray to pursue baseball. Murray had also said multiple times throughout the football season that he plans to focus strictly on baseball after this season......»»

Trump congratulates Clemson for its perfect season with fast food

By Laurie Kellman, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump paid tribute to college football champion Clemson for winning the national championship at a White House ceremony Monday evening. Trump said he even paid for their meal of "American fast food" because of the partial government shutdown. He did not disclose the tab. "We went off and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza," Trump said after returning to the White House from a trip to New Orleans. "I think they'd like it better than anything we could give." "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're going to have a little fun," said the president, a fast food-lover himself. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said much of the staff that works in the White House residence has been furloughed due to the shutdown, "so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods." An impressive — and highly unusual for the White House — smorgasbord greeted the players in the East Room. Silver trays held stacks of wrapped burgers from Wendy's and boxed burgers from McDonald's, including Big Macs. White House paper cups bearing the presidential seal held the fries. He was serious. pic.twitter.com/fD3oPmZ0kg— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Better pics of the feast 🕯🍔 🍟 pic.twitter.com/mKiFZ7xUjz— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Pizzas, some topped with olives and tomatoes, also were on the menu. Silver bowls held the condiments and stacks of white china plates sat nearby. The Clemson team's visit is its second since Trump took office. The Tigers last visited in June 2017 after their championship run the previous season. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has nominated this season's undefeated Tigers as the best college team ever. Trump calls them a "great team, an unbelievable team." Trump has routinely sparred with professional athletes during his two years in office. College football has managed to avoid such political controversies, with last year's champion Alabama also visiting the White House......»»

June Mar Fajardo honored to be in PBA ‘GOAT’ convo but won’t say he’s greatest

MANILA, Philippines---June Mar Fajardo took just seven seasons to become the most decorated individual in the PBA after he won an unprecedented fifth straight MVP plum on top of his seven Best Player of the Conference awards. San Miguel's jolly giant also has six championships under his belt and despite all the hardware he's received he has never thought of placing himself on the pedestal. Fajardo said that even though he has the most MVP and BPC trophies in league history he is nowhere near the "legends" Ramon Fernandez and Alvin Patrimonio. Before Fajardo became the No.1 in the MVP list, he shared the top spot with Fernandez and Patrimonio with four.
