first_imgWrestleMania returning to MetLife Stadium in 2019 Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback The 32-year-old Brewer was bought out by the Los Angeles Lakers late last month, allowing Oklahoma City to pick him up as a free agent. As a starter with the Thunder, he is averaging 14.8 points in the shooting guard spot vacated when Andre Roberson ruptured his left patellar tendon and had season-ending surgery.Brewer said it has been easy to fit in because he played college ball for Thunder coach Billy Donovan at the University of Florida.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“I won’t say it’s surprising,” Brewer said. “It’s a comfort level. I keep telling everybody, coach Donovan makes me feel really comfortable. I won two national championships with the guy. It’s just his demeanor and the faith he has in me that makes the game easier.”Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook had 16 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for his 22th triple-double of the season and the 101st of his career. Brewer said playing Westbrook’s up-tempo style has been fun.

I can run all day, so having Russell Westbrook pushing on the break just running to get a layup — it’s easy.”Paul George scored 19 points and Steven Adams added 18 points and 14 rebounds for the Thunder, who swept all three games from the Clippers this season.Oklahoma City, one of several teams in the race for the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference playoffs, won its fifth straight and clinched a winning season. It was the start of a difficult closing stretch against mostly teams in playoff contention.Adams created problems for the Clippers all night.“He’s a good basketball player,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “I almost think that’s a slap just to call him and energy player because he is a skilled basketball player with high IQ and is just extremely physical. It seems like every time we got a big stop, he got it back for them, so you just have to give him credit.”ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

first_imgMusic, munch & Manny Blu come together for the Fort St. John Salvation Army Food Bank!  Manny Blu is coming to Fort St. John as a part of the star-studded line-up for the Hit After Hit Tour with George Canyon.  Nothing says community and country music quite like a fundraising lunch show with this Canadian Music newcomer. Join Moose FM, Just Jacks and Chances Casino for Manny Blu: Unplugged on Thursday, May 2nd.Tickets will be $20 at the door with all proceeds going towards the Fort St. John Salvation Army Food Bank.  Doors open at 12:00 PM and the show begins at 12:30 PM.  Your ticket purchase includes: Buffet Lunch from Just Jacks, $20 towards slot play at Chances Casino, and an intimate show with country artist Manny Blu; including opportunity for Meet & Greets and Q&A.- Advertisement -Manny Blu, a recent transplant to Nashville, has wasted no time putting himself smack dab in the middle of Nashville’s music scene.  However, music wasn’t Manny’s first passion. Hockey, Golf and MMA were where his heart found happiness. Putting his efforts into MMA training for years, he made his amateur debut on Oct 12, 2013. He emerged victorious, although walked away injured and requiring time to rest and recover. Being inspired by none other than BB King during this time off from MMA, Manny picked up the guitar and began learning to play.  He had no idea that learning a few chords could dramatically change his career path. Since his MMA injury and focus shift towards music, Manny has continued writing and performing throughout Canada honing his craft and abilities. Being influenced by the talents of John Mayer, Adam Levine, Jordan Davis, and Sam Hunt Manny continued working on his writing for his debut EP. Eventually, taking meetings and building his network that lead him to relocate to Nashville to work on his new record and build his career. For many, music is a way to heal and connect – We are happy to have the Fort St. John Salvation Army Food Bank join us as the benefactor for this event.  Located near the Lido Theatre, the Food Bank operates on a drop-in basis from 10am – 11:50am. People can come in, have a cup of coffee, grab a snack and sign up for a food bank slot, on a first come first serve basis.  ​From 1:00pm – 3:55pm, the food bank offers appointments for those who may be using the food bank for the first time or may have additional needs they’d like to discuss with our Community Ministries Worker.last_img read more

You’ve come in at this level and it’s the first time you’re here.“They all think it’s going to be easier than it is – they always have, even when they have as good a pedigree as Jan does.“He’ll need to get to the level and the pace of this game [in the Premier League] as quickly as he can. We hope he can do this and make a contribution.“Today was certainly a disappointment for him and for us with the penalty he gave away.”last_img read more

Goetz gives Valencia big lift

first_img As did Goetz, who made a clutch pair of free-throws with :27 second left to give the Vikings a 54-52 lead and K.C. Arbogast made another two for the final margin of victory. “I’m used to being at the line with the pressure on me at the end of the game,” Goetz said. “Guys tend to do things differently in those situations. I’ve shot thousands of free-throws. I just did things as I normally do.” Rincon, averaging a team-high 15 points per game for the Cowboys, was held to just one basket in the first half.

first_imgFormer Donegal GAA boss Jim McGuinness says managing in the Premiership would be a good career-move!Jim McGuinnessThe Glenties man appeared on RTE’s Saturday Night With Miriam show and discussed life after managing his county team.McGuinness was asked by host Miriam O’Callaghan if he would one day like to manage the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Man Utd or Arsenal. And he admitted that when the wages in the Premiership were taken into account, it would be a “good career move.”But the transition from Ballybofey to the Barclay’s Premier League may not be as pie-in-the-sky as some may think.The Donegal All-Ireland winning boss revealed he is starting his soccer coaching badges, will be working directly with the Celtic Under 16 team and is getting one-on-one advice from Celtic’s coaches including John Collins, John Kennedy and Stephen Woods.“Everyone has been drip-feeding me and that has been very beneficial and I will get the chances to work with the under sixteens this summer,” he said. He admitted that he didn’t miss managing Donegal as he had moved on but he admits that it was the best five years of his life including the season managing the Donegal U21s.McGuinness tried to explain his plan for a revamp of the All-Ireland Championship to the RTE host.However, it appeared that Miriam was a little confused by Jim’s plans to make the championship more inclusive for some of the smaller counties.McGuinness paid tribute to his wife Yvonne, who was in the audience, and revealed how some of the couple’s five children attend school in a 23 pupil school outside Glenties.Miriam also remarked what a beautiful place Donegal was and how it must be a wonderful place to bring up children in.
