CC Sabathia has long been pitching Gerrit Cole, the top free-agent hurler this offseason and a fellow California native, on the Yankees.Sabathia (Vallejo) said on his R2C2 is UNINTERRUPTED podcast this week that he has been speaking regularly with Cole (Newport Beach) about what it’s like to pitch in New York. Sabathia, 39, signed a seven-year, $161 million contract with the Yankees prior to the 2009 season after pitching the Brewers into the playoffs in 2008. He wound up spending 11 seasons in pinstripes, through the 2019 season. The left-hander announced his retirement two days after the Yankees were eliminated by the Astros in the ALCS.Cole, 29, made himself extra millions this year, first by striking out 326 batters in the regular season and then being the Astros’ best pitcher in the playoffs. He threw seven scoreless innings against the Yankees in Game 3 of the ALCS at Yankee Stadium. Overall, he recorded a 1.72 ERA, a .515 opponents’ OPS and 11.5 strikeouts per nine innings in five postseason starts.The Yankees are seen as one of the top bidders for Cole, along with the Astros and Angels. SN FA RANKINGS: Cole right at the top of the list”Me and Gerrit Cole have spoken at length many times about me pitching as a Yankee as a West Coast guy,” Sabathia told co-host Ryan Ruocco. The full podcast will drop Thursday.Sabathia doesn’t need to try really hard to sell Cole on the Bronx. Cole grew up a Yankees fan and was a first-round draft pick of the Bombers out of high school in 2008. He chose UCLA instead.Now he’s able to join his boyhood team — and Sabathia has an obvious suggestion to ensure a move happens.”You offer that motherf—er enough money, he’s going to want to come here,” he said. “I’m speaking from experience.”
Among these conversations, of course, is the game’s uniforms. We’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about the Super Bowl 54 jerseys for the 49ers and Chiefs and a brief history of the game’s uniforms.MORE: Picks, predictions for Super Bowl 5449ers jerseys for Super Bowl 2020 Chiefs’ record in dark uniformsThe Chiefs are 8-3 this season in dark uniforms, including their divisional round win over the Texans and AFC championship win over the Titans. Kansas City’s losses in its dark uniforms came in Week 5 against the Colts, Week 6 against the Texans and Week 8 against the Packers. The Chiefs have gone 6-0 in the dark uniforms since the Green Bay defeat.49ers Super Bowl results by uniformWill the 49ers win Super Bowl 54 solely because of their uniforms? Though we know that’s not possible, there are some surprising similarities between jerseys and Super Bowl results.San Francisco is 2-0 in their team’s Super Bowl history while wearing white uniforms, defeating the Bengals in Super Bowl 14 and the Broncos in Super Bowl 24. Moreover, teams wearing white jerseys have won 13 of the last 15 Super Bowls.

These jerseys include a white top and gold pants.This decision did come with some controversy, though. 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman told the media that the team had been pushing the NFL to allow them to wear their all-white 1994 uniforms for the Super Bowl. That didn’t pan out, however, and the 49ers will stick with their present-day uniforms instead.Chiefs jerseys for Super Bowl 2020 (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/cf/5c/patrick-mahomes-012820-getty-ftrjpg_1wjuh41bkubsw1kl4etpo6m5ez.jpg?t=-334875769&w=500&quality=80 The Chiefs will wear red jerseys and white pants in the Super Bowl. Sunday’s game marks the first time in the history of the Super Bowl that the game will feature two teams with red as their primary color.In head-to-head history with the 49ers in white and the Chiefs in red, Kansas City holds a 5-2 record over San Francisco, winning each of the previous five head-to-head matchups. Who is the home team in Super Bowl 54?The Chiefs will serve as Super Bowl 54’s home team while the 49ers will be the visitor. The NFL rotates home teams for the Super Bowl between the AFC and NFC every year. For the 2019 Super Bowl, the NFC’s Rams were the home team against the AFC’s Patriots.49ers’ record in white uniformsThe 49ers are 7-1 this season in white uniforms, the lone loss coming in a Week 13 defeat against the Ravens. This record includes San Francisco’s Week 8 win over the Panthers and their Week 17 win over the Seahawks in which they wore throwback white uniforms in both games. San Francisco’s two playoff wins came in their red uniforms. At long last, Super Bowl 54 is finally here. Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers are set to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in the final game of the 2019 NFL season.What has developed into a worldwide spectacle for football fans and even casual viewers, the first Sunday in February provides several talking points involving the game’s result, the environment and a variety of other reasons.
It is not clear when the haircut took place, but it will likely cause even more consternation if it indeed occurred between the Spurs squad’s coronavirus tests and their return to training – putting the Ivorian’s team-mates at risk.Aurier, wearing his team-mate Davinson Sanchez’s Colombia shirt, posed on a seat with another man stood directly behind him.In the first photo, he has his hands together, then points to the camera and finally lowers his head to show off the fade and design in his hair.He captioned the post: “Yes Sir @justscuts #LeCoiffeurEstBon,” with the hashtag translating to “the hairdresser is good”.He was spotted wearing the same Colombia shirt while driving into Tottenham’s training ground earlier in the day.And also yesterday, Aurier posted a video of himself kicking a ball, as Spurs players returned to the training ground for solo sessions.He captioned it: “Resumption of work… it’s almost time.”LATEST BREACHThe latest Instagram post comes less than a month after he and Moussa Sissoko were forced to apologise for breaking lockdown rules.Aurier shared a video of himself wearing a mask while training with fellow Tottenham man Sissoko on social media before swiftly deleting it.In a joint statement, the pair said: “We wish to apologise for not setting the right example here.”We recognise that as professional footballers we have a responsibility to be role models, particularly during this uncertain period that everyone around the world is facing.””We must all respect the government advice to minimise the number of lives lost during this pandemic.”We cannot thank NHS staff enough for their tireless work at this time and we shall both be making a financial donation to show our support for their efforts.”3 Aurier was snapped arriving at Spurs training on Tuesday wearing the same Colombia jerseyCredit: ReutersMOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’PicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidNEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidAnd this was not the first time that Aurier had got himself into trouble, after filming himself running with a friend a fortnight before.Spurs also drew criticism when manager Mourinho was pictured holding a training session in a park.And when Sanchez was snapped jogging with Ryan Sessegnon.Serge Aurier denies claims he spat at Tottenham fans while celebrating goal in win over Olympiakos SERGE AURIER has defended breaking lockdown rules by getting his hair cut – but still faces a grilling from Tottenham for his behaviour.Aurier posted a picture of himself and his barber after getting a trim, breaking the government social distancing guidelines just as Spurs returned to training.3 Serge Aurier arrived for training today after breaching lockdown rules for a third timeCredit: Reuters3 Serge Aurier took to Instagram to show off his haircut – but appears to have broken social distancing rules againCredit: InstagramIt is the third time the former Paris Saint-Germain has got into trouble with the national rules aiming to prevent the spread of Covid-19.The 27-year-old trained as usual today as Jose Mourinho’s squad began getting ready for Project Restart.But the right-back will now be asked to explain himself over why he felt the need to get his hair cut at a time when hairdressers have been ordered to remain closed until July.Aurier attempted to pass off any criticism being aimed at him by insisting there was no danger because both he and his barber were clear of coronavirus.He wrote on Instagram: “My hairdresser is negative and me too so stop talking in a vacuum and put on masks and gloves when you come to take pictures at the training center (sic), it’s part of the rules too.”A Tottenham statement said: “We are investigating the circumstances and will deal with the incident appropriately.”

A request to drop two senatorial nominees of the ruling Unity Party (UP) from contesting the pending special elections has been denied by the National Elections Commission (NEC).Sinoe County District#3 Representative, who is an executive of the UP, Matthew G. Zarzar, claimed that the two UP senatorial candidates, Milton Teahjay and Willington G. Smith, whose names have appeared on the NEC’s preliminary listing, were in violation of section 5.2 of the Legislative Code of Conduct of 2014.Teahjay is the Superintendent of Sinoe County and Willington G. Smith is also the Superintended of Rivercess County.Rep. Zarzar claimed that the two UP senatorial aspirants had not resigned their appointed positions as provided by the Code of Conduct.The section requires appointed official desiring to canvass or contest for elected public office to resign said post, at least two years before the date of such elections.However, in NEC’s ruling, delivered by its Chief Dispute Hearing Officer, Muana S. Ville, the elections body declared the “Rep. Matthew Zarzar’s complaint against Milton Teahjay and Willington Smith is hereby dismissed.”Delving into the merits of the entire case, Ville narrated that on August 18, 2014, the lawmaker reminded the Commission that its qualification of two UP’s nominees to contest the special senatorial elections was in violation of Section 5.2 of the Legislative Code of Conduct.The NEC Dispute Officer quoted the UP executive as saying that he named Milton Teahjay and Willington G. Smith as those in violation of the code.He continued, “Based on the lawmaker’s request, we conducted an investigation and determination.”“Citations were issued and served for the parties to appear for hearing of the matter on August 28, at the hour of 11: AM,” adding “Rep. Zarzar made no representation when the case was called for hearing.”His absence, the Dispute Hearing Officer said in the ruling, prompted the UP’s legal counsel, Atty. Miller Catakaw, to file a motion for dismissal, claiming “the lawmaker has abandoned the case and his absence is an attempt to delay the proceeding.”Atty. Catakaw, who is the deputy secretary general of the UP and lawyer for both Teahjay and Smith, won the acceptance of NEC’s Hearing Officer to the attorney’s argument for dismissal.Immediately following the ruling at NEC’s office, Atty. Miller Catakaw, in an interview with journalists, disclosed that the “cardinal obligation of a UP partisan is to support the party candidates through campaigning and to provide other support within his or her capacity at any elections.”Atty. Catakaw claimed that the lawmaker’s compliant was in total violation of Article VII, Section 1(e) of the UP’s constitution.“What the lawmaker needs to understand is that if anybody wishes to challenge our party’s candidates, it should not have been Rep. Zarzar, who is an executive of the UP.”The attorney added, “Zarzar’s action is seen or perceived as challenging the signature of the UP’s National Executive Chairman, who signed the nomination papers for these partisans of our political party.”According to him, Rep. Zarzar’s complaint that the UP nominees should have resigned their positions in order to be candidates for the Liberian Senate was belated. “What he doesn’t recognize is that this law took effect on June 20, 2014, the date, on which it was published.”“This law not intended to affect the 2014 senatorial elections, which is pending. This is because it requires that government officials, such as Superintended should resign their appointment at least two (2) years before the elections they wish contest in,” he clarified.“This means that these candidates were to resign in 2012, the minimum time required by this law.”Also, Atty. Catakaw said, the law could not and was intended to operate retroactively to the Liberian Constitution.“The constitution forbids ex-facto laws and his complaint against our candidates, Teahjay and Smith should comply with a statute, which is not applicable to the 2014 senatorial election and is therefore untenable,” he further clarified.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Even so, the Army persisted in telling Tillman’s family he was killed in a conventional ambush, including at his nationally televised memorial service 11 days later. It was five weeks before his family was told the truth, a delay the Army has blamed on procedural mistakes. Tillman’s father, Pat, said Friday that he had no intention of commenting on the inspector general’s report until he had heard the Army’s entire briefing Monday and had analyzed it. Tillman’s case drew worldwide attention in part because he had turned down a multimillion-dollar contract to play defensive back for the Arizona Cardinals in order to join the Army Rangers after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. To date, the Army has punished seven people, but no one was court-martialed. Four soldiers received relatively minor punishments under military law, ranging from written reprimands to expulsion from the Rangers. One had his pay reduced and was effectively forced out of the Army. The latest investigation has focused on how high up the chain of command that knowledge went. Officers from the rank of colonel and up will be blamed in the report, according to one officer who has been informed of the findings. According to the officials, the report will not make charges or suggest punishments, but it will recommend that the Army look at holding the nine officers accountable. One defense official said it appears that the inspector general will not conclude there was an orchestrated cover-up in the investigation.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – A Pentagon investigation will recommend that nine officers, including up to four generals, be held accountable for missteps in the aftermath of the friendly fire death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman in Afghanistan, senior defense officials said Friday. The Defense Department inspector general will cite a range of errors and inappropriate conduct as the military probed the former football star’s death on the battlefront in 2004, said one defense official. The official, who like the others requested anonymity because the Army has not publicly released the information, said it appears senior military leaders may not have had all the facts or worked hard enough to get the facts of what happened April 22, 2004, when Tillman, a corporal, was killed by members of his own platoon. Dozens of soldiers – those immediately around Tillman at the scene of the shooting, his immediate superiors and high-ranking officers at a command post nearby – knew within minutes or hours that his death was fratricide.
“It’s not meant as a substitute for going to class. You can’t interact; you can’t be part of that dialogue,” said Ben Hubbard, co-manager of webcast.berkeley, a local site delivering course and event content as podcasts and streaming video. But Muller gets e-mail from all over the world – “Even Timbuktu!” – and Hubbard said course videos previously distributed online through Google scored more than a million hits and about 700,000 downloads. UC Berkeley launched an audio podcast program with more than 25 courses in 2006. In 2007, the campus is to deliver audio or video for 86 full courses and more than 100 other events – 3,500 hours of content. More than 300 hours of videotaped courses and events already are available at http://www.youtube.com/ucberkeley. Berkeley’s offerings join an eclectic mix of content on YouTube, including the breakout rant from the young man known as “Leave Britney Alone Guy” for his tearful defense of singer Britney Spears’s performance on the MTV Video Music Awards. Muller, known for presenting physics with innovation and relative simplicity, has found his audience is as diverse as it is far-flung. “I get e-mails from high school students, I get e-mail from college students, people who graduated and never learned this stuff. People listen to this because they enjoy learning,” said Muller, who is at work on a book under the same title as his course that he plans to have ready before Election Day.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

“I can only imagine the pain and suffering in the last few years,” he said to the victims’ family. “You may see justice served, but I beg to differ: You are looking at a truly innocent man. “True closure is catching those in the streets who truly committed this crime. May God bless you all.” Miner’s parents described their son as a troubled man and compulsive liar who was coming off drugs during his taped police confession. They said there was nothing during the monthlong trial – not blood, not DNA evidence – that ever connected him to the Lasky murders. “I feel so sorry for them. My condolences go out to their family. It was the most horrific crime,” said his stepfather, Fred Ward, 52, of Lancaster, following the sentence at Van Nuys Courthouse. “But my stepson didn’t do this. He didn’t have the hate in him to commit a crime of this nature.” For the Laskys, nothing can ever replace the nurturing parents who had been wed for 53 years. Nothing could replace Bill Lasky, a World War II veteran who loved nothing more than to cuddle his grandkids. Nothing can ever replace Bertha, a Getty Center docent and dear friend of her family and to everyone else who knew her. And nothing would ever again be normal for their three beloved children and numerous grandchildren. “Your actions changed the lives (of our family),” said daughter Beth Lasky of West Hills to the impassive convicted killer. “I lost my best friend; my mother was my best friend. “I’m not able to talk to my father. My children lost their grandparents in an awful and violent way. That is not normal.” Son Scott said his parents were real, not some headline or story on TV. They were more than victims of some horrible crime. They had taught responsibility, they taught respect, and they taught love. “Maybe when they nail your cohorts, we shall finally be able to put this to rest,” said Scott Lasky of San Jose during a lengthy address to Miner. “In my mind, you are the lowest of the low. You are going to where you belong. “My only consolation is that my parents knew terror for only a few hours. May you know terror until the end of your days.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! VAN NUYS – At first, Mark Wiland felt he had nothing to say to the man sentenced Tuesday to life behind bars for murdering his grandparents. Then he addressed Gregory Douglas Miner with one pain-filled message. “I missed out on a beautiful thing – a relationship between a grandson and his grandparents,” said Wiland, 18, of San Jose. “It was a tragedy.” Miner expressed no emotion as Superior Court Judge Barry A. Taylor sentenced him to two terms of life in prison without parole for the murders of 76-year-old William Lasky and his 73-year-old wife, Bertha.

The Laskys were killed inside their home during a home-invasion robbery in 2001. The killers, after stealing their car, returned later to set them and the house on fire. Prosecutors and police said it was one of the most brutal murders they’d ever seen. Two more men allegedly linked with the deaths have not been charged. During the trial, jurors had watched a 6 1/2-hour video of Miner confessing to more than a dozen versions of the crime. But prior to his sentence, the once-convicted burglar declared he had nothing to do with the killings.
