I would like to share about my best experience of the year 2015. This was an experience I will truly never forget. The experience was a game I got the opportunity to pitch in. It was when I was on the USA Baseball 15u National Team and pitched against the host country Mexico. I got to pitch in front of a huge crowd which was awesome. I came in relief to pitch during a tough situation. The first batter I faced was a big battle which I ended up winning. It was a 13-pitch at bat that ended up a flyout to center field. That was a tough start for me. The next batter I faced was against the hitter for Mexico. It was a tough battle again and the batter ended up grounding out. That was the end of the inning which was huge because I left two runners on base. The next inning was a quick three up three down inning. While I was pitching, after every out I was fired up because I was having a lot of fun. We won the game 7-5 and ended up winning the gold medal.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons hosted a tough Duke Blue Devils yesterday. The game was very close for most of the game until Duke pulled away with the win with the score of 91-75. Grayson Allen and Marshall Plumlee were the scoring leaders for Duke and Devin Thomas was the scoring leader for Wake Forest. Wake Forest plays NC State next on January 10. Duke plays Virginia Tech next on January 9.
Golden State Warrior’s Star Stephen Curry aggravated his left shin for the second time this season Tuesday night in a 109-88 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Curry’s shin made contact with Los Angeles starting center Roy Hibbert’s leg as Curry made a layup halfway through the third quarter. Curry said that the shin injury is “frustrating and annoying and and other adjective you want to throw in there.” He is very frustrated that his shin is not healing and he wants to be out in the basketball court. The Golden State Warriors are currently 33-2 with the best record in the NBA.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano agreed on a four year extension which will remain him head coach until 2020. “It was a great day,” Pagano said after the deal was announced. “I’ve had a lot of great days in my life but none better than today. This was absolutely the best day of my life.” Chuck is 41-23 as a head coach with the Colts but only went 8-8 during the 2015-2016 season.
Cam Newton had one hell of a game in the final regular season game for the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on January 3, 2016 38-10 to end the season 15-1 (best record in the NFL). Cam tallied four total touchdowns with two rushing touchdowns and two passing touchdowns. Leading into the game there was some controversy about who would be MVP after the Panther’s week 15 loss to the struggling Falcons. After the final regular season game, Cam stated his MVP case and is now the favorite to win the award. His season stats were 3,837 passing yards, 5 rushing touchdowns, 35 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions.
