The World Cup will sound different this year. “Loads of people will have negative comments about women and women commentators and that’s because that’s just the way that they think. “They bring knowledge and expertise,” said 77-year-old Martin Tyler, about to broadcast his 12th World Cup. You don’t have to convince anybody of her qualifications,” said David Neal, executive producer of Fox’s World Cup coverage. She started Premier League telecasts last December and her first World Cup broadcast will be Poland-Mexico on BBC One television on Tuesday.
🔊 Listen to thisIt’s now been four years and change since a gut-wrenching loss to Ohio State prompted James Franklin’s most animated press conference as Penn State coach. That’s the issue,” Franklin said shortly after a 27-26 loss to the Buckeyes in 2018 at Beaver Stadium. Outside of a lopsided loss during the 2020 pandemic season that featured no crowds, the Lions have played the Buckeyes tough. The coaches also tabbed linbeacker Curtis Jacobs as defensive player of the week and quarterback Sean Clifford as offensive player of the week. But we’re not the first team that’s had issues like that.1 month ago Times Leader

He joins Kyle Busch, his former teammate at Gibbs, as the only active NASCAR drivers with multiple Cup titles. Logano earned both of his titles with Penske, and all of his success was achieved long after his Gibbs dismissal. That didn’t make Sunday any less conflicting for Logano, who learned shortly before the start of the race that Coy Gibbs, vice chairman at JGR, had died in his sleep hours after watching his 20-year-old son, Ty Gibbs, win the Xfinity Series championship. “It’s such an interesting spot as you sit there preparing to run a championship race and then you hear. Logano could relate to Ty Gibbs’ uncomfortable position leading into the race because Logano himself made his share of silly mistakes as he struggled with the spotlight in his early NASCAR years.26 days ago Times Leader

“Nobody’s passing anybody at Martinsville, so better bring it,” said 2020 NASCAR champion Chase Elliott. With the chance to race for the Cup championship on the line, drivers are going to have no choice but to be very, very aggressive. After the message sent by NASCAR the last several weeks, drivers will have to carefully consider what’s acceptable this Sunday. With the season on the line for seven drivers come Sunday, it might make for desperate measures in the waning laps. But I’ve learned from every one of them, and I feel like I know where my line is now.”1 month ago Times Leader
The United States’ Segino Dest during the international friendly soccer match between Saudi Arabia and United States in Murcia, Spain, last month. NEW YORK — The United States team’s top player has been buried on his club’s bench, starting only two matches this season. “Obviously not the results that we were really hoping for going into the World Cup,” United States midfielder Christian Pulisic said. Still, given the unique timing of this World Cup in the middle of the European season, some have hope American players will step up. “Mentally it’s been difficult at times.”BerhalterThe 49-year-old Berhalter became the first person to coach the Americans after playing for them at a World Cup.1 month ago Times Leader
Since his stroke, Fetterman has struggled at times to speak clearly in public events. Oz, meanwhile, will have a high-profile chance to unite Republicans and appeal to moderates who could decide the race. “The debate looms very large, bigger than usual for a Senate debate,” said Republican activist Charles Gerow, a veteran of two decades of Sunday TV political talk shows. Fetterman’s allies fear that the 60-minute live televised debate may represent a no-win situation for the Democrat, even if the typical audience for a Senate debate is quite small. Much of the attention will likely focus on how Fetterman — who is blunt and plainspoken — can communicate in a high-pressure situation.1 month ago Times Leader
