LOOK: Jackie Forster’s heartwarming message to Kobe Paras on his 21st birthday

It may already be 21 years since Jackie Forster gave birth to son Kobe Paras, but for her, it feels like it only happened yesterday. The actress took a trip down memory lane in celebration of his 21st birthday, as seen in her Instagram post on Wednesday, Sept. 19. Her video showed Paras as a wide-eyed baby, along with several photos of them together, and a moment where Paras got a puppy as a gift. And like any mom, Forster imparted some words of wisdom for her son. She said that by the time he has a child of his own, and has that "burning butterfly sensation" of when he/she does something, he will realize that it is the same feeling she felt for him during that age.

National 3x3 team will not be at the mercy of ball clubs says chief backer

The team Chooks-to-Go is trying to build will be on-call pretty much anytime as long as it's about representing the Philippines in international competitions. The chief Gilas backer announced Tuesday that it's working on creating a full-time national 3x3 team with the goal of qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. [Related: Plan to form dedicated 3x3 national team already in motion] And when Chooks says full-time national team, it means full-time national team. In light with the persisting issue of Gilas having trouble securing players to play in international tournaments, this dedicated 3x3 team will have no such problems as assured by Chooks' big boss himself. "The whole point of our investment sa sports, hindi lang dahil mahal namin ang basketball. Our primary agenda is to restore our spirit of nationalism na nawala na. If you talk to the UAAP, to the pro leagues, parang hindi na nahihiya yung mga tao ngayon to refuse to represent the country," Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascarinas said. "Yung bang local tournament ng collegiate o sa pro is more important than to serve the country? We keep on compromising. Yung compromise natin is hindi na nahihiya yung mga leaders natin to refuse to serve the country. We will be a nation of pasaway if magtuloy pa ito," he added. In a strong message, Mascarinas says he wants to change that culture. In essense he doesn't want the national team to be at the mercy of ball clubs which is why PBA players might not see action in the 3x3 national team, which has Kobe Paras for the time being. "I really take personal offense na ang lalakas ng loob nila na magpaalam ka. Narinig lang nila that we need to send representatives, sana mag-offer sila ng available na player. Pero hindi nangyayari yun. We want to change that culture," Mascarinas said. "We want to full-time engagement. Sa tingin ko if they are full-time PBA players, we will be at the mercy of the clubs again," he added. The national 3x3 team backed by Chooks-to-Go is set to embark on a grand plan of qualifying to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. To complete the pool of players, there will be a series of tournaments and tryouts all across the country. "This is a good opportunity for everybody. Yung tryouts na ito, even yung out-of-school youth in the barangay-level, puwede sila mag-try out. Itong programa na ito will bring out the best among our dreamers," Mascarinas said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Andre Paras’ biggest frustration in life

Andre Paras is courteous and good-natured, even when talking about issues that make him uncomfortable and guarded---like his much-speculated relationship with his estranged mom, Jackie Forster. He says he sees why people are curious about that tabloid-fodder aspect of his life, but that doesn't mean they can make him talk lengthily about it. "Since I don't discuss it openly, I don't see why they expect me to explain something that doesn't concern them," he points out. "So, I just tell them that maybe in time, [things will work out]. But if that ever happens, why should I broadcast it to the whole world? But, I understand why it interests them.

Red Sox beat Astros 10-3, avoid elimination in ALDS Game 3

em>By Jimmy Golen, Associated Press /em> BOSTON (AP) — David Price pitched four scoreless innings of relief after another Boston starter faltered, and 20-year-old Rafael Devers connected for a key homer as the Red Sox beat the Houston Astros 10-3 on Sunday to stave off elimination in Game 3 of the AL Division Series. After losses in the first two games left the Red Sox hoping to avoid a sweep, Hanley Ramirez cheered up the Fenway Park crowd by waving a “Believe in Boston” flag during introductions. He then delivered four hits and three RBIs to help the Red Sox snap a five-game postseason losing streak. Mitch Moreland had three hits and Jackie Bradley Jr. hit his first postseason homer, a three-run shot in a six-run seventh that helped Boston pull away. Game 4 is Monday in Boston. Houston right-hander Charlie Morton is expected to start against reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello. After winning each of the first two games 8-2, the Astros took a first-inning lead for the third straight game. Up 3-0 with two on and one out in the second, Joe Kelly relieved Doug Fister and retired George Springer before Josh Reddick hit a long fly ball to right field that Mookie Betts caught at the top of the short wall to end the inning. Kelly pitched the third and then Price turned in his seventh straight scoreless appearance since going to the bullpen in September after missing most of the season with left elbow problems. Astros starter Brad Peacock escaped the second inning with a 3-1 lead despite loading the bases with nobody out, but he ran into bigger trouble in the third. After Peacock struck out Boston’s No. 3 and 4 hitters, Andrew Benintendi and Mookie Betts, Moreland doubled and scored on Ramirez’s line drive over left fielder Marwin Gonzalez’s outstretched glove. Francisco Liriano gave up Devers’ two-run homer to right that gave Boston a 4-3 lead — its first in 44 postseason innings dating to Game 1 of the 2016 ALDS. Devers, who turns 21 on Oct. 24, is the youngest Red Sox player to homer in the postseason and one of only six players in major league history to hit a postseason home run before their 21st birthday. Ramirez drove in two more runs in a six-run seventh inning highlighted by Bradley’s homer that bounced off Reddick’s glove and into the stands behind the Pesky Pole. Price allowed four hits and a walk. He exchanged words with Gonzalez after striking him out with a 95 mph fastball to end the seventh, and home plate umpire Ted Barrett walked toward the Red Sox dugout with catcher Sandy Leon to calm things down. Peacock allowed three runs and six hits in 2 2/3 innings. Liriano got just one out while allowing one run and two hits for the Astros, who have never swept a postseason series. strong>TRAINER’S ROOM /strong> Houston reliever Lance McCullers took a hard comebacker off his ankle in the fourth, but needed only one warmup pitch to test it and stay in the game. strong>UP NEXT /strong> em> strong>Astros: /strong> /em> Morton was 14-7 with a 3.62 ERA in the regular season. em> strong>Red Sox: /strong> /em> A year after leading the league with 22 wins and winning the Cy Young Award, Porcello had a 4.65 ERA and a league-leading 17 losses. .....»»

Storm, Mystics look to enjoy experience of WNBA Finals

By TIM BOOTH, AP Sports Writer SEATTLE (AP) — Sue Bird leaned over toward Breanna Stewart and made sure the current MVP of the WNBA was paying attention to what the oldest player in the league was saying. "This is advice," Bird said. The message to Stewart was clear: At age 24, don't take for granted that she's leading the Seattle Storm to the WNBA Finals and expect it to happen all the time. Bird should know. She won a title in her third WNBA season. It was another six years before she was back in the finals winning another title. And it was eight more years on top of that before Bird and the Storm finally made it back to the Finals, where they will face the Washington Mystics in Game 1 on Friday night. "I didn't think we'd be back, to be honest," Bird said. "We started a rebuild and there was no telling when we'd get on the other side of it. It's not that my hunger for it went away or my motivation. Clearly, I wanted to stay at the top of my game and wanted to help this franchise get on the other side of this rebuild, but the Finals? That was very far from my imagination." Bird is relishing this opportunity knowing it could be one of her last chances to win another title. And it was her performance in the fourth quarter of Game 5 against Phoenix that put Seattle in the championship series, hitting four 3-pointers and scoring 14 of her 22 points during a brilliant six-minute stretch that left the likes of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James singing her praises on social media. Also not taking this trip to the Finals for granted are the Mystics. It's their first Finals appearance in franchise history. Star Elena Delle Donne went to the Finals in 2014 with Chicago, as did guard Kristi Toliver with Los Angeles in 2016. "We've been leaders of this team and have just been trying to make sure everyone is focused, staying light, having a good time and spending time together, not just on the court but off the court," Delle Donne said. Here are other things to watch in the best-of-five series: STAR POWER: The matchup between Delle Donne and Stewart highlights the series. Stewart averaged 24 points in Seattle's series against Phoenix and carried the scoring load for much of Game 5 until Bird got hot late. What Delle Donne did against Atlanta may have been better. Playing with a bone bruise in her left knee suffered in Game 2, Delle Donne returned for Games 4 and 5 and while her scoring was down, her presence on the court was a boost for the Mystics. Delle Donne scored 29 and 30 points, respectively, in her two games against Seattle in the regular season, the second a blowout victory in Washington late in the season. Stewart had 25 points in each of the first two meetings but was held to 10 in the final matchup. FIRST-TIME WINNER: The Finals will feature a coach who will raise the trophy for the first time. Seattle's Dan Hughes and Washington's Mike Thibault have enjoyed incredible individual success leading teams, but neither has ever won a title. Thibault has only reached the Finals twice in his career — in 2004 and 2005 with Connecticut. In the first of those Finals trips, the Sun lost to Seattle. Hughes has reached the Finals only once in his career, in 2008 with San Antonio, where it was swept by Detroit. FRESH KICKS: Bird appears to be poking fun at herself for being the oldest player in the WNBA with shoes she had designed for Game 1 of the Finals. The shoes feature the image of Emma Webster, better known as "Granny" from the Looney Tunes cartoons. Bird tweeted on Wednesday, "Scariest Grandma I have EVER seen." Bird and Stewart have worn customized sneakers at times during the season. THAT 70s SHOW: While this is the first time Seattle and Washington have clashed in the WNBA Finals, it's not the first time the two cities have played for basketball championships. In consecutive years — 1978 and 1979 — the Washington Bullets and Seattle SuperSonics met in the NBA Finals. Washington won a Game 7 to win the title in 1978, while Seattle defeated the Bullets in five games to win the title a year later. Both Seattle teams were coached by Lenny Wilkens, a regular at Storm games......»»
