UEFA to judge Cristiano Ronaldo red-card case next week

NYON, Switzerland --- Cristiano Ronaldo should learn next Thursday if he is banned from playing at former club Manchester United in the Champions League. UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the case of Ronaldo's first Champions League red card on Sept. 27. Ronaldo tangled with Valencia's Jeison Murillo, appearing to tug at the defender's hair, in the first half of Juventus' 2-0 win on Wednesday. The UEFA panel studies all red-card cases and has the power to extend the mandatory one-game ban. Ronaldo will miss a home game against Young Boys on Oct. 2. The subsequent game for Juventus is on Oct. 23 at Old Trafford, where Ronaldo played for six years. He won the f...Keep on reading: UEFA to judge Cristiano Ronaldo red-card case next week.....»»

Why Robert Redford wants uplifting ‘Old Man’ to be his swan song

  LOS ANGELES---Robert Redford may have made his last film as an actor. But the Hollywood legend himself was quick to stress that "The Old Man & the Gun" "could be" his swan song.   "You want to be careful of being too final because sometimes you have to change your mind," said Robert, seated in a room at the Royal Fairmont York Hotel in Toronto. A charming comedy-crime drama, "The Old Man & the Gun" was screening at the Toronto International Film Festival---that was why he was in town.   At 82, one of Hollywood's golden boys still sports his famous tousled blonde hair, but his sideburns have turned silver. The familiar face, which lit up many sc...Keep on reading: Why Robert Redford wants uplifting ‘Old Man’ to be his swan song.....»»

Baguio Boys: MMA champ Eduard Folayang reconnects with high school friend and star boxing trainer Marvin Somodio

After spending the last month or so training at the Jackson-Wink MM Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico, former ONE Championship Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang made a quick stopover in Los Angeles, California, before finally heading back to the Philippines, Tuesday.  While in Los Angeles, Folayang was able to reconnect with an old high school friend in former boxer-turned-coach Marvin Somodio.  Like Folayang, Somodio is a native of Baguio City.  "Sobrang saya ko na nakita ko si Marvin kanina." Folayang shared with Steve Angeles of ABS-CBN News. "Naalala ko nung nasa high school kami, naglalaro siya ng boxing and I’m playing Sepak Takraw, and you never imagine that in that long period of time, there are a lot of changes," Fun fact: before becoming an MMA star and Wushu standout, Folayang's first sport was Sepak Takraw.  Somodio did go on to become a professional boxer, but his career lasted just three fights, two wins and one loss. He eventually found his calling as a trainer and began in Baguio City. Now, Somodio is the chief assistant trainer in Freddie Roach's Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, California.          View this post on Instagram                   Hitting some mitts with @marvinsomodio in @wildcardwest @tristeezy_mma @bviloria @jayanthony714 @the.landslide #growing #learning A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Sep 17, 2018 at 12:36pm PDT "Ang maganda dun, we follow what we love, we follow the passion that we love, and now we met each other having the same passion." said Folayang.  Both Folayang and Somodio have found success in their respective fields of combat sports, with Somodio being a trainer to world champions in boxing, while Folayang having established himself as the face of Filipino MMA.  "Yung makikita mo siya na very successful, makikita ka niya na successful din, dito pa sa America, iba yung pakiramdam." Folayang added.    H/T: Steve Angeles, ABS-CBN News.....»»

EYES ON YOU, KID: NCAA 94 Jrs. players to watch

The first round of the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament is over and done with. And with the second round already underway, we’re getting even more glimpses of the future of Philippine basketball courtesy of these players: CLINT ESCAMIS – Mapua High School (yellow jersey with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 23.3 points, 46.9 percent shooting, 5.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 2.7 steals Clint Escamis has spent his first two seasons under the leadership of the likes of Sherwin Concepcion, Mike Enriquez, Warren Bonifacio, and Will Gozum. Now in his third and last season in Mapua, he is proving that he is no slouch as a leader himself. The league’s top scorer and second-best steal-getter has carried the Red Robins right back up there in the standings – and they are the only team to have downed all f the traditional powerhouses in College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, Arellano High School, and San Beda High School. This version of Mapua may not be as star-studded as it was in the last four years, but they may just have the brightest star in all of the league in their 6-foot-1 swingman. INAND FORNILOS – College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills (green jersey defending white jersey with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 11.4 points, 51.8 percent shooting, 10.9 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, 1.0 assist On a team as fully loaded as CSB-LSGH, there has to be a workhorse – and Inand Fornilos has been just that and more. Just like he did in their championship campaign last season, he has been a force to reckon with on both ends of the floor for the league-leading Junior Blazers. The rebounds and defense have always been second nature for Fornilos, but this season, he has become better on offense. In fact, he already has a couple of 20-point games to his name – not bad for an undersized big man at 6-foot-2. Without a doubt, the graduating forward is doing all he can to make his former team regret ever letting him go. JOHN AMORES – Jose Rizal High School (blue jersey with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 20.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.0 steal And all of that is because of John Amores, the second-best scorer in all of the league and the undisputed main man of the daring Light Bombers – the only team that will be sweeping contending Mapua in the elimination round. JRU’s rise from the bottom half of the standings to the top four is nothing short of spectacular and that improvement is best personified by Amores who went from role player a year ago to go-to-guy this season. Give the Most Improved Award to the kid already because he’s ready and raring to take much more than that. JOEL CAGULANGAN – College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills (green jersey with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 15.3 points, 7.3 assists, 4.7 rebounds, 2.1 steals For the high standards he set a year ago, this season has been a quiet one for Joel Cagulangan. With the likes of Escamis and Amores flying high and CSB-LSGH teammates Fornilos and RC Calimag grabbing more headlines than him, last year’s Finals MVP has been under the radar. Quietly, however, he is actually the Junior Blazers’ leading scorer and the NCAA’s best assistman and fourth-best steal-getter. Yes, that’s just how the 5-foot-9 do-it-all dynamo rolls, making an impact even if everybody else doesn’t feel it. Just don’t forget that he could also choose to make everybody feel his impact, okay? AARON FERMIN – Arellano High School (grey jersey, #18) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 14.2 points, 53.5 percent shooting, 17.6 rebounds, 1.0 block If not for Arellano’s struggles last season, Aaron Fermin would have been MVP. If not for the Braves’ struggle in the ongoing season, Fermin would have been the league’s most tantalizing talent. Standing at 6-foot-5, graced with a wide frame, having timing on lock, and blessed with a non-stop motor, the graduating big man has all the tools to be a game-changer on both ends of the floor. Indeed, he had a stretch of games of posting a 15-point, 20-rebound double-double. Now, if only he could lift Arellano to much-needed wins and back onto a playoff push. DAN ARCHES – Mapua High School (yellow jersey with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 16.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.8 steals Mapua has long been defined by its talented big men, but now, it’s the guys at the wings who have taken center stage. Escamis has been their main man, but he also has a more than capable running mate in Dan Arches. All Escamis could do, Arches could do as well, only without the same sort of consistency. But hey, this is the first time he has been getting time with in his two years as a Red Robins so there’s nothing that all those reps couldn’t improve. And oh, he also has one thing going for him – a fine floater that he could bust out at any time that somehow, some way, has become automatic. JOSHUA DAVID – College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills (green jersey, with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 14.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.9 steals Imagine the dynamic between Escamis and Arches, and then translate that onto Cagulangan and his own partner-in-crime in Joshua David. Like Cagulangan, David could stuff the stat sheet. Like Cagulangan, David could do whatever CSB-LSGH needs for a win. The only difference is that unlike Cagulangan, David already has the size at 6-feet and a big body to make the same sort of noise in the Seniors. Of course, Cagulangan’s clutch genes are also on another level, but who knows? Maybe David is just waiting on the wings to seize those moments for himself? MILO JANAO AND KEAN BACLAAN – San Sebastian College-Recoletos JANAO’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 19.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist (yellow jersey with ball in first photo) BACLAAN’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 15.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.8 steals (yellow jersey with ball in second photo) It looks like San Sebastian College-Recoletos still wouldn’t be able to get over the hump this year, but the good news is that they remain on the right track. The even better news is that Milo Janao and Kean Baclaan, the two paving the way for them, are here to stay. That backcourt, by themselves, has fueled the Staglets to four wins – and still in the thick of things. While a long-awaited, much-wanted playoff berth is a long shot this year, perhaps it wouldn’t be so when both Janao and Baclaan get a year older and a year more determined to continue doing it all to win. MAC GUADANA AND JOHN BARBA – Lyceum of the Philippines University GUADANA’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 19.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists (grey jersey with ball in first photo) BARBA’S ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 17.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.7 steals (grey jersey with ball in second photo) Batang Gilas member Mac Guadana has become the NCAA’s constant – a 6-foot guard who could score at will while also doing his part in rebounding and playmaking. With him showing the way, Lyceum of the Philippines University has proven to be a far from easy out for three seasons now. They are still a ways away from legitimate contention, but the Junior Pirates have reason to believe that would be sooner than later as teaming up with Guadana is John Barba, a 6-foot-2 forward who just has a knack for willing his way to good looks inside. With those two, the boys from Cavite have two of the top six scorers in all of the league. Now, they just have to find the other pieces of the puzzle for their first-ever playoff berth. ROM JUNSAY – Arellano High School (grey jersey with ball) ROUND 1 AVERAGES: 19.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.6 steals Rom Junsay was one of the biggest keys to Mapua’s first-ever championship. That was two years ago, though, and since then, the 5-foot-6 has transferred to Arellano and is now only playing his first and last season there. Nonetheless, in just his first game in blue and grey, he wasted no time in reminding everybody about his talents, dropping a career-high 34 points. He and the Braves have trailed off from there, but just as Arellano is a sleeping giant no team wants to wake, Junsay is an active volcano just waiting for the perfect time to erupt.

FIBA WORLD CUP: Coach Yeng on his Iran dunk: 'I didn t know na kinukunan pala ako ng video'

Gilas Pilipinas sure had a rough trip to Iran last week. But one of the lighter moments that happened for the national team in the Middle East was head coach Yeng Guiao showing off his incredible dunking skills during one practice prior to Gilas challenging Team Melli in Tehran. [Related: WATCH: Coach Yeng Guiao throws down vicious dunk... on a lowered rim] Coach Yeng was seen throwing down a vicious two-handed reverse slam in Iran. The incredible highlight was captured by guard Paul Lee and was posted on Instagram. Guiao, who's taking over the national team for the moment, was dunking on a lowered rim of course... just in case you didn't pick that one up already. Back in Manila as Gilas prepares for a closed-door game against Qatar in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, coach Yeng addressed his dunk. "Ine-entertain ko lang yung sarili ko while they [Gilas boys] were warming up. I didn't know na kinukunan pala ako ng video," he said. "I was just trying to enjoy that time na... gusto ko maramdaman kung paano umi-slam dunk eh. Nakita ko yung ring, sabi ko samantalahin ko yung pagkakataon," Guiao added. Despite handling the national team in the 2018 Asian Games where they ended up at 5th place, it was coach Yeng's first time coaching in the Asian Qualifiers. While that's a tall order in itself, his first game was against Iran on the road. Him dunking on enemey territory was just his way to calm himself down and ease his nerves a little bit. "It's a good sidelight, because there's humor to that, and siguro it's also something that's going to lighten the atmosphere, to take away some of the pressure," Guiao said. "So ine-enjoy lang namin lahat, enjoy lang namin ang episode na yun," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Nalucaban Kids: Blessed by swamp ‘diwata,’ powered by baseball dreams

  A "diwata" (deity) was believed to have given the young boys of a small agricultural and fishing town in Northern Samar the extraordinary skills and prowess to emerge as the champion Little League team in national and international competitions in the mid-1970s to the early 1980s.   The deity was said to dwell in a swamp close to where the boys --- later known as the "Nalucaban Kids" --- played a crude game of baseball, which propelled this small community of mostly native huts in Pambujan town, all the way to international sports fame in Asia and the United States.   Today, four decades later, a new generation of Nalucaban Kids seems bent on creating ...Keep on reading: Nalucaban Kids: Blessed by swamp ‘diwata,’ powered by baseball dreams.....»»

Prosecutors won’t charge Backstreet Boy Nick Carter

LOS ANGELES --- Prosecutors declined to file charges Tuesday against Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys after a singer reported last year that she had been raped in 2003. The woman, Melissa Schuman of the group Dream, was 18 at the time, meaning the statute of limitations for prosecution had expired in 2013, Los Angeles County prosecutors said. They said they did not otherwise evaluate the merits of Schuman's story. California did away with its statute of limitations for rape in 2016. Schuman said it's unfortunate the state didn't make the move retroactive to accommodate victims like her.
