Rose Bowl to host futbol match

first_imgA friendly match between the United States and Mexico just a month before the 1994 World Cup here attracted 93,869 to the Rose Bowl. In the 1996 Nike U.S. Cup final at the Rose Bowl, 92,216 people watched a doubleheader featuring the U.S. and Mexico, along with an MLS game between the Galaxy and Tampa Bay Mutiny, which is still the largest crowd in MLS history. Because this is Mexico’s final match before the 2006 World Cup, Dunn expects another huge sendoff. There will be a “Futbol de Fiesta” of activities outside the Rose Bowl beginning at 3 p.m., followed by the match at 8. The Galaxy, which was founded in 1996, left the Rose Bowl following the 2003 MLS season for the new 27,000-seat Home Depot Center in Carson, and HDC and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum have staged many of soccer’s big international games since.

That was the last big international soccer match held at the Rose Bowl, which lost the Galaxy as a tenant after the 2003 season. “It’s going to be a great day and night of fun,” said Rose Bowl General Manager Darryl Dunn. “And to know that Mexico will have its full complement of players, and that it’s Cinco de Mayo and their final game before the World Cup, you couldn’t ask for anything more. “We expect a large and festive crowd. We haven’t staged a big soccer game here in a long time, so hopefully, this will be the start of more to come.” This will be Mexico’s eighth trip to the Rose Bowl. The Mexicans’ history in Pasadena in meaningful games brings a smile to Dunn’s face. PASADENA – For many years, as home to the Galaxy Major League Soccer team, the Rose Bowl hosted dozens of matches a year. With the Olympics and the World Cup, its field has also seen some of the greatest men’s and women’s players in the world. Big-time soccer has been a rarity here, though, since the Galaxy moved on. But the fiesta of all fiestas is coming to the Rose Bowl on Cinco de Mayo. That’s when the Mexican national soccer team will face the national team of Venezuela in Mexico’s final tuneup match before the 2006 World Cup in Germany in June. last_img read more

Tottenham Hotspurs options to replace injured Harry Kane

first_imgNow that we know Harry Kane will miss at least one and a half month of competition, we have to talk about his possible subs at Tottenham.This Tuesday was mostly led by really bad news coming from the Tottenham Hotspur camp, as the extent of Harry Kane’s ankle injury was disclosed and the Englishman will miss at least one and a half months of competition.All the Spurs fans are really worried about the repercussions that this may bring, because we are talking about one of the most important strikers in the world right now and they won’t have him for an important amount of matches this season.The most worrying part of all this will be the first Champions League against Borussia Dortmund, which Kane will miss without question and leaves Mauricio Pochettino with a huge dilemma of who might be able to replace the skipper.There are three options that the Argentine manager is considering, we are going through all of them and give you the details in this article.Game day! #COYS— Heung-Min Son (@OfficiaISonny) September 16, 2017Son Heung MinThe South Korean forward is the natural option to replace Harry Kane, he is the other Tottenham Hotspur’s player who has been on fire this season and there is no question that he would be the ideal candidate to take Harry Kane’s place as the offensive leader for the time the captain won’t be available.But there is a major problem with Son, he traveled to the United Arab Emirates this week to represent his country in this year’s Asia Cup.South Korea is considered a favorite of this competition and they are expected to go all the way to the final, if that happens then Son would return until after February 1st.The forward playing all the tournament with South Korea means that he will likely miss the upcoming five matches for Spurs, but he will certainly be back in time to play the Champions League’s round of 16 against Borussia Dortmund.⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️💥💥💥💥— Lucas Moura (@LucasMoura7) August 27, 2018Lucas MouraWhen Son is not around, Mauricio Pochettino could take the option of playing with Lucas Moura as a striker.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.The Brazilian winger has proved his worth this season with great performances against worthy opponents, but he is far from being a striker like Son or Kane truly are.However, Moura could bring something entirely different to Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino could opt to play with no natural striker down the middle.This option does seem a little more farfetched but the Argentine manager does seem stuck in a tight spot with this decision, while there are other options like Dele Alli, the manager might end up deciding to use the only centre-forward he has to properly replace Harry Kane.Training session #COYS #THFC— Fernando Llorente (@llorentefer19) January 11, 2019Fernando LlorenteThe odds that an opportunity like this could present itself for Fernando Llorente were pretty slim, but this is how destiny and football work sometimes.The Spaniard has gone from not being considered to play for Tottenham at all, to one of the very first options that Mauricio Pochettino is considering to replace Harry Kane in the next one and a half month of all competitions.There is no question that the Spaniard does have the quality to replace the Englishman, the only problem is the lack of participation which might get him to start a bit slow in the first few matches.However, Llorente had been waiting for this big break for a long time and he won’t let this opportunity get past him at all.Delivering good performances while Harry Kane is out of commission, might be the best way in which Tottenham Hotspur could increase this player’s value for the next transfer window.Injuries are part of the game but no-one will be working harder to get back fit. Thanks for the messages.— Harry Kane (@HKane) January 15, 2019Who should replace Harry Kane as the striker for Tottenham Hotspur in the upcoming matches?

Lighting Motorcycles Strike has struck but is it the bike we wanted

first_img 0 Lightning Motorcycles’ Strike is getting us all charged up 2020 GMC Sierra HD first drive: Towing tech marvel More From Roadshow 8 Photos Share your voice 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything bettercenter_img 2019 Ford F-150 review: Popular pickup keeps on truckin’ Motorcycles Electric Cars Post a comment Enlarge ImageLightning’s Strike electric motorcycle packs 180 pound-feet of torque into a slightly more relaxed sportbike-like chassis. Lightning Motorcycle After months of teasing, the Lightning Motorcycles’ Strike is making its debut, and it looks promising, if not all that we hoped it would be.The base model Strike still comes in at the $13,000 price point that Lightning has been teasing, but its 70-to-100 mile range at that price point leaves something to be desired. That being said, the base model’s 10-kilowatt-hour battery can still be Level 2 charged in around two hours. If you want DC fast-charge capability on anything but the top-tier model, that will cost you an additional $1,500.The base Lightning’s performance — range notwithstanding — should be pretty decent though, with 90 horsepower on tap and a full 180 pound-feet of torque available at zero RPM. Stepping up to the top-of-the-line 20kWh model gets you an additional 30 horsepower. The base model bike weighs 455 pounds, while the Carbon Strike tips the scales at 485 pounds.Details on the suspension and brake components for the two lower-power models are a little scarce, but if you shell out nearly 20 large for the Carbon Strike edition, your bike will come with brakes by Brembo and suspension by Öhlins. You’ll also get an AIM dash with lap-timing abilities, and you’ll get your bike as early as July.Previous press releases from Lightning left us with a few questions about where the bike would be manufactured, since $13,000 is a relatively low price point for an electric motorcycle. Well, it happens that the answer isn’t as straightforward as “Made in America.” It’s more like “Made in America, sort of.”The bike undergoes final assembly at Lightning’s new facility in San Jose, California, but its components come from all over the world. Lightning isn’t giving us specifics on that, but it’s not uncommon for a vehicle’s various parts to come from many vendors around the world, and frankly, as long as the quality control from Lightning is good, we’re OK with that.So, in the end, was our excitement for the Strike justified? Kind of. Is it the world-beating, revolutionary, affordable electric motorcycle we were hoping for? At its entry-level price point, not really. The lack of standard DC fast charging across the range and the limited range of the base model aren’t ideal. The pricing structure that Lightning has going reminds us a lot of the one used by Zero.From a performance standpoint, we expect that the Strike will be a blast to ride. It’s not exactly a featherweight, but its combination of adequate power and stellar torque should be fun, and the slightly relaxed sportbike-like form factor should mean that it will do an excellent job of straightening out your favorite canyon road.The real test will come when we get to throw a leg over it.

HPD West University Shooter Had More Firearms At His Home And Body

first_img Al OrtizA group Houston Police officers gather at a parking lot close to where the shooting took place. Investigators found additional firearms after searching Nathan Desai’s condo in the West University neighborhood.The Houston Police Department says it still hasn’t found the motive for Monday’s shooting in the West University area, located in southwest Houston, but they continue to collect evidence and the investigation remains active.During a press conference held after the weekly meeting of the Houston City Council, HPD Homicide Division Cpt. Dwayne Ready explained investigators are still interviewing witnesses and noted that the autopsy performed on Nathan Desai shows he was shot about six times by police officers.Ready also detailed that, in addition to the two firearms Desai had at the scene of the shooting, he had more at home.“The ones found in the residence included another .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun, as well as a 9 mm handgun and a 30-30 rifle, along with additional ammunition,” Ready said.Investigators also found body armor and a gas mask at Desai’s condo in the West University area.Ready added it is still unclear why Desai had Nazi emblems on the military clothing he was wearing.Mayor Sylvester Turner emphasized Houston was very fortunate because no victims lost their lives and praised the quick reaction by the Houston Police Department and other first responders.“They did a very exemplary job of responding, doing precisely what they’ve been trained to do and did it in a very professional manner and responded fairly quickly to the incident and contained it,” Turner commented at the press conference.Police are also investigating Desai’s name change a few years after the 9/11 attacks, from Niren to Nathan. 00:00 /01:15 Share X Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:last_img read more
