With Balkman ban lifted, can SMB reunion happen?

first_imgMOST READ Five years later, a repentant Balkman began his journey of redemption, winning the hearts of Filipino fans as a reinforcement for Alab Pilipinas in the Asean Basketball League. Playing alongside the charismatic Justin Brownlee, Balkman rediscovered the adoration that only Filipino fans can give and realized what he was missing.And fans of the game saw what they had been missing, as Balkman churned out strong performances with both his trademark passion and newfound maturity.Balkman was “happy” about the ban lifted by current PBA top chief Willie Marcial, his management team said. But he remained cautious and did not issue a statement, electing to focus on Alab Pilipinas’ campaign.“He wrote a letter of appeal then personally appeared in my office,” said Marcial. “But I didn’t decide just based on that. I solicited the thoughts of Commissioner Chito Salud and Arwind Santos. Both gave their thumbs-up for the lifting of the ban.”“I trust that he has learned his lesson and has become a better person and a more disciplined athlete. Good luck to him,” said Salud via a statement released by the PBA Media Bureau.ADVERTISEMENT “If he had his way, a return to San Miguel would be perfect because he has unfinished business there,” said Balkman’s agent, Sheryl Reyes.With the hardworking and passionate Balkman in tow during the Commissioner’s Cup five years ago, the Petron Blaze Boosters (now San Miguel Beer) were touted as heavy favorites for the title. Instead, his passion and fire caught the better of him and all it took was one major explosion to reduce the team’s bid to ashes.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownIn a game against the Alaska Aces, Balkman lost his cool and got into a tussle with teammate Arwind Santos, resulting in that controversial choking incident.And the punishment was swift and hard. Balkman was fined P250,000 and banned for life by then commissioner Chito Salud. St. Clare trips Letran, notches playoff berth Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

He has matured since the incident now that he’s 33,” said Marcial.The Beermen have already booked an import for the coming Commissioner’s Cup, which gets going April 22. And if San Miguel does elect to release him, Reyes said they are open to any offers from any team.”But should the Beermen need some extra muscle in their title hunt and ring up the Puerto Rican star, the lure of completing unfinished business would be too tantalizing to resist.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims With Renaldo Balkman no longer banned from the Philippine Basketball Association, it is but fitting that the 33-year-old workhorse has set his sights on a comeback with one squad in mind—San Miguel Beer.And it’s not just because the Beermen own his rights.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

With 11th French Open, Nadal not obsessed with Federer’s 20 Grand Slams

first_imgWinfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film “Of course I would love to have 20, like Roger, in the future — or even more,” Nadal said Sunday evening after beating Dominic Thiem 6-4, 6-3, 6-2 in the final at Roland Garros, “but being honest, (it’s) something that is not in my mind.”He added that it’s not an “obsession.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“Let me enjoy this title,” Nadal said. “I can’t be always thinking of more. Of course, I have ambition. Of course, I have passion for what I am doing. But I never have been crazy about all this kind of stuff. No, you can’t be frustrated always if somebody has more money than you, if somebody have a bigger house than you, if somebody have more Grand Slams than you. You can’t live with that feeling, no?”Nadal’s uncle, Toni, who used to also be his coach, attended Sunday’s match and was asked afterward whether Rafael can pull even with Federer. After losing her first three Grand Slam finals, Simona Halep added major championship No. 1 to her No. 1 ranking by coming back to defeat Sloane Stephens in three sets. Halep kept insisting she needed to do it, and could do it — and she was correct. “Now she can relax, go out there, let her game go,” said her coach, Darren Cahill.SERENA STILL SUPERBAt her first major in 16 months, and first as a mother, Serena Williams showed with three victories that she still has the game and the grit to go far and — even at age 36 — could be a threat to add to her 23 major titles. She withdrew from the field before her much-anticipated fourth-rounder against Maria Sharapova, citing a chest muscle injury, so it’s not clear whether Williams will be someone to watch at Wimbledon.NOT THEIR TIME YETRunner-up Thiem, a 24-year-old from Austria, might very well be the second-best player on clay in the world, but there’s still a large gap, at least at Roland Garros, where he is 0-3 against Nadal. Thiem and the man he beat in the quarterfinals, 21-year-old Alexander Zverev of Germany, are the two most well-rounded rising stars in the game. The question is when each will be ready for the next step.AMERICAN WOMENBefore her loss to Halep, Stephens, 25, eliminated Madison Keys, 23, in the first all-American semifinal at the French Open since 2002, when Williams defeated Jennifer Capriati. “All in all,” Stephens said, “I don’t think anyone can complain.” It was also a rematch of last year’s U.S. Open final, in which Stephens topped Keys. For all the hand-wringing in years past over what would happen to U.S. women’s tennis after the Williams sisters, they seem to be in pretty good shape. Plus, consider this: Coco Gauff, a 14-year-old from Florida, beat Caty McNally, a 16-year-old from Ohio, in the junior final, the fourth time at the last five Grand Slam tournaments that two Americans played each other for the girls’ title.DON’T LEAVE!One important lesson from this French Open: If you fail to make it out of qualifying, do not skip town. Thanks to a new rule that awards some prize money to players making late injury withdrawals, more than a half-dozen men got into the draw as a “lucky loser” to replace those who pulled out. None of the beneficiaries was more celebrated than 190th-ranked Marco Trungelliti. He headed home to Barcelona after being beaten in qualifying, then learned he could sign up for a spot in the field. So he made the 10-hour drive back to Paris with his 88-year-old grandmother, mother and younger brother in a rental car, then went out and won in the first round.

(AP Photo/Michel Euler)PARIS — Rafael Nadal’s 11th French Open title raised his Grand Slam trophy count to 17, three away from the men’s record held by Roger Federer.That doesn’t necessarily mean Nadal is fixated on catching his rival.ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View comments MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anewcenter_img Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Animam calls for ‘consistent support’ for PH women’s basketball team Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations “I want to think that is possible,” Toni said. “But I know (that) maybe in one month, Federer will win again Wimbledon.”Federer, of course, sat out the French Open to rest and prepare for the grass-court season.

Chucky Taylor’s Interview on TMZ Online Radio (Full Text)

first_imgTMZ: Welcome to Issues in the Press.  We have Charles Taylor Junior on the line.  Mr. Taylor are you there, sir?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Yes sir, good afternoon to all listeners. Good afternoon to you Mr. Al Jerome.TMZ: Thank you very much. Could you just state your name?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Again, I am Charles Taylor, Jr., otherwise known as “Chucky”, which I would prefer not being called. But yes, this is uh, this is me calling from Federal Prison USP Big Sandy in Kentucky. TMZ: Thank you very much, Mr. Taylor.  You have been indicted and are in jail for rape and torture all that.  What do you have to say to the people of Liberia listening right now?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Well, that’s actually the reason why I’ve called; one of the reasons why I’ve made myself available for this interview. You know over the next couple of months I plan on addressing this unlawful nature of my conviction, an illegal conviction.  Let me be pristinely clear about the allegations that I’m making and will be making in the months to come.  I’m stating that Justice Department officials and other federal executive employees involved in the first torture case in US history, conspired to violate my civil and constitutional rights:By producing false statements in violation of 18 USC 1001 in Department of Justice Documents i.e. prosecution memorandum, case initiation report and supporting affidavits, regarding a case that they clearly lacked probable cause to initiate.I will be saying and clearly asserting, prosecutors lacked the same probable cause when they sought and procured an illegal indictment in violation of my due process rights.Due Process violation continued in my trial as the government failed to prove the jurisdictional part of the statute under 18 USC2348(b) regarding count 1 of the indictment, as it relates to 18 USC 2348… conspiracy to commit torture.TMZ:  Okay, Charles?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Well, let me finish, Al… which is the heart of the indictment, making me legally and factually innocent. There was fraud via misrepresentation throughout the jury instruction; essentially, the jury issued an advisory opinion, and at present, the judge lacked the sentencing authority under rule 32 under Federal Rules and Procedure, as relates to the PSI as… judicial facts. At present, the DOD is conducting an illegal certification of my JFC file and other critical source documents in violation of 4001(a); 18 USC4001(a), 18 USC4042, and—  TMZ:  Ok Charles, um… sir, I just want to stop you right there. You will continue, but I just want to stop you in your tracks. The first thing I want to address here right now before we go to that and, like I said, I promised our people that we will continue to grant you access on the air and continue to speak. So for time to come, you know, Charles will be speaking on this our TMZ Radio exclusively with us, and we’re going to have an opportunity to listen to your problem. Now the first thing here is, Charles, the people of Liberia are listening to you. Do you have anything to say to the people who are in tears: your loved ones who are worried that you are in jail and those who think that you’ve hurt them?  Do you have anything to say to them as they listen now?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Well clearly, and here’s the reason why I stressed on the fact that there’s only 15 minutes. Because I intend on addressing this illegal conviction, it is very important that I now begin to address the myths in the form of mistruths that have taken place with regards to the comments made about me and others closely associated to me. With that being said, I’ve made it my business over the years to apologize not only to family and friends.  And this interview I wanted to use as an opportunity as well, to first clearly apologize to my mother, my father whom I would say three words to: Now I understand. To my children, my son Charles, my daughter Jordan, my son Darren Taylor who’s in Liberia right now; my brothers and my sisters; my fellow partisans, my comrades and fellow Liberian citizens: I am sorry if I have done anything to offend anyone.  I apologize if I have at any point in time created the perception that what has been said about me is true, I apologize.This has been an exercise of humbleness and I am thankful to have been placed in this environment. What may surprise many is that I have transcended the suffering and I have found wisdom within it. But more importantly, it has stressed the need to be humble.  To say sorry is a sign of strength, this is not a weakness. To have compassion is a projection of strength and it is an exercise that I will continue to fully engulf myself in.  So as I say again: to my family, to my children, to my partisans, comrades and Liberian citizens, I am sorry for all that I have done or they have perceived that I have done. But it is now time for me to reclaim my name, not only for my children but for those who know me well, which are a very small number. TMZ:  Okay, Charles Taylor Junior making his apology to the people of Liberia. Let me ask this question. I know it takes a lot of time and strength and endurance to actually reexamine your life – you know—while in prison, to readjust yourself.  What is it we’re hearing now; are you now a Muslim?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Yes. Yes I profess [the faith of the Prophet Mohammed]. Yes I am and I have been for many years.TMZ: When you were convicted you were given the opportunity to apologize to the people for any wrongdoing.  I understand when the judge asked you to apologize—Charles Taylor, Jr.:  I can’t year you too well, please repeat the question.  TMZ: During the time of your conviction, were you given the opportunity to apologize and did you refuse or did you apologize?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Are you referring to my trial?TMZ:  Yes.Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Well, a trial consists of facts, okay.  At that time, I was a layman, ignorant to the law and I relied on wise council of my public defenders now that I know which was ill advice.  Had I known then now what I know, I would have testified and I would have directed and been greater involved in regards to my defense. So no, I did not testify during trial but those issues would have been irrelevant in the eyes of the fact finders. So ultimately, the jury is supposed to consider the allegations based upon fact and what I had initially said before I was rudely interrupted – no offense – is that they issued an advisory opinion, what is considered to be a hypothetical judgment.  And that basically means that the prosecutors failed to advance or prove the allegations as they had declared them in the indictment, which was illegal as they lacked probable cause. So there is a legal term called actual and factual innocence and I meet that criteria presently at this stage. And I have presently brought this to the attention of the Attorney General, Mr. Derrick Holden, and have filed several complaints with the office of the Inspector General and I am asking now for certain congressional representatives as well senators to initiate a congressional investigation regarding this case because I firmly believe that this prosecution was motivated by political reasons – it was not grounded in law or fact.  So I’m also asserting now today – live on the air – that I believe that there were foreign factors involved in encouraging my prosecution; foreign influence in regards to a domestic prosecution of a United States citizen. Those are very real allegations and ones to be taken seriously.  And I will continue to ask for the support of the rule of law by Congress – congressional representatives as well as senators that I have written , one primarily being the congressional representative of District D of Florida, Representative Corrine Brown, who I have sent all my legal information to. I am not making countless story allegations; they can be supported by facts.  In fact, if given the opportunity, I will send these documents out for them to be posted live on the Internet for the world to see.  It is clear that this indictment was motivated by politics.  And clear crimes were committed in order to initiate that. TMZ: Okay, so if you say there were foreign powers trying to actually propel your prosecution, do you care to say what were those powers and why were they interested in making sure that you are behind bars?Charles Taylor, Jr.:  Well look, this is not intended to be an inflammatory—(phone shuts off, interview ends.)Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Football Beats Valpo, 35-21

first_imgWilkins ended up recording 205 rushing yards on 37 carries and one completion for an 18-yard touchdown. University of San Diego 10/15/2016 – 12:30 p.m. On the Bulldogs first possession of the game, Wilkins rushed for 45 yards to help lead Drake down to Valpo’s three-yard line. Grant Kraemer then found Eric Saubert in the back corner of the end zone for a three-yard touchdown pass, capping the 13-play 85-yard drive. The Crusaders answered to make it 14-7, but the Bulldogs kept rolling offensively as Kraemer found Keegan Gallery on a post route for a 19-yard touchdown pass to put Drake ahead, 21-7. Drake used some trickery to take a 14-0 lead early in the second-quarter. Wilkins completed an 18-yard pass to Zach Zlabis for a touchdown. Kraemer threw for 236 yards and completed 17-of-31 as Saubert was his top target with seven catches for 37 yards and two touchdowns. Cates recorded a game-high and career-best 92 yards receiving on three catches. Next Game: VALPARAISO, Ind. – Conley Wilkins matched a career-high 205 rushing yards to lead the Drake University football team past Valparaiso, 35-21, on Saturday at Brown Field. With just over five-minutes to play, junior Jabari Butler intercepted Jimmy Seewald to allow the Bulldogs to put the game away. The Bulldogs gave Wilkins the ball eight times to wind down the clock and on his eighth carry he ran eight yards into the end zone to put the game out of reach, 35-21. Drake was clicking in the first half on both sides of the ball. Offensively, the Bulldogs converted 7-of-7 third-down conversions and tallied 301 yards of total offense. Drake’s defense limited the Crusaders to just 126 yards of total offense and only allowed Valpo to convert one third-down on six chances. The Crusaders forced and recovered a fumble in their own territory in the first possession of the third-quarter. Valpo capitalized on the Bulldog miscue to cut Drake’s lead to 28-21.center_img Listen Live Watch Live The Bulldogs return to Drake Stadium on Oct. 8 when they host defending co-champions San Diego. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. Print Friendly Version Valpo brought it back to seven, 21-14, when Joey Diaz-Martinez returned an interception 49 yards for a touchdown. “I am proud of how our guys fought from beginning to end. We came out and played hard right from the start and we made some mistakes in the second-half offensively but we never lost our passion,” said Drake head coach Rick Fox. “They (Valpo) were playing to stop the run and our offensive line did a great job blocking and giving him seams and Conley just ran hard all the way throughout. I couldn’t be more proud of him.” Full Schedule Roster The Crusaders came back and tried to put points on the board before the end of the half, but Drake’s Nathan Clayberg blocked the field goal attempt as time expired. A 67-yard reception by Devin Cates helped set up the Bulldogs to take a 28-14 lead. Three plays after Cates’ big play, Kraemer found Saubert for the second time in the end zone, this time for a six-yard touchdown. Defensively, Sean Lynch tallied a team-best nine tackles, while Michael Roane and Cody Stepanek each registered seven stops. Drake improved to 3-3 on the season and 2-1 in the Pioneer Football League, while Valpo fell to 2-4 and 1-2 in the PFL. Preview Buy Tickets Live Stats 1350AM KRNTlast_img read more
