Skiing: With the resumption of the state championships, skiers are delighted to be back on the slopes https://tasman-series.com/skiing-with-the-resumption-of-the-state-championships-skiers-are-delighted-to-be-back-on-the-slopes/ Thu, 06 Jan 2022 00:01:23 +0000 https://tasman-series.com/skiing-with-the-resumption-of-the-state-championships-skiers-are-delighted-to-be-back-on-the-slopes/ Breezy Quimby from Rangeley Lakes Regional School races down the Gray Ghost Ski Trail Wednesday at Saddleback Mountain in Rangeley.

RANGELEY – Rangeley senior Breezy Quimby started her alpine ski season in what might as well be her backyard, and her smile revealed how she was feeling.

“It’s super exciting to be back at my favorite mountain,” Quimby said after completing her second run at a season opener at Saddleback Mountain, where she said she all skied. the days during the winter. “This is where I grew up skiing. I started skiing when I was able to start walking. … It feels good to be back. “

The season of at least eight teams started on Wednesday at Saddleback, and for some of those teams it will end there as well. Saddleback will host the Class B Alpine Championships this year while Black Mountain in Rumford will host them in Class A, marking the return of the State Championships after a season without them due to the pandemic.

For skiers taking on Saddleback’s Gray Ghost Giant Slalom Track on Wednesday, the chance to compete again for the ultimate prize at the end of the season added more flavor to the season launch event.

“I’m so excited to see them again,” said Katie Yeaton, sophomore Mt. Blue, who placed third in the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference slalom championship last season. “It was really (incomplete). I just felt like something was missing last year.

“It’s good. I’m definitely going to go harder than I did last year,” said Skowhegan sophomore Asa Stroman, “It’s very important. It helps me to surpass myself.

Ian Allen, a senior from Mt. Abram, said not having a state championship last year resulted in an unsatisfactory end to the season.

“It was tough,” said Allen, who was seventh at the Mountain Valley Conference championships last year in giant slalom and eighth in slalom. “It’s like you’re climbing a mountain, and it’s raining and it’s so foggy that you can’t see the view. You do all the work for no reward. It really helps to know that there is an endgame, that there is something you can leave with your younger classmates, something that you can actually look forward to to inspire them. for the coming years.

Sadie McDonough of Mt. Blue, back in her final year after finishing fifth in the KVAC slalom and giant slalom, said last year was special in that the season was less than a year old. after the start of the pandemic, but added that more competitive opportunities make for a better season.

“I don’t think we were disappointed. We had a good season, we won KVACs, the boys too. It was enough to make us feel good, ”she said. “But it’s going to be fun having States, because we can just see different teams that we don’t normally see in our area. … I see these people all the time, and it’s really fun to run against them, but it’s also fun to see new faces.

This social aspect is another difference this season compared to the last. Last winter the races were smaller with fewer teams, and skiers were invited to go directly from the bus or car to the start line. This year the races are bigger which skiers say adds more buzz to the events.

“Last year was a little different,” said Meghan Mahoney, senior from Maranacook. “We didn’t have that many races, there weren’t that many people at the races. It feels real again. … The States are a lot more people there, there are people I haven’t skied with there. It’s just bringing back that first year and second year thrill when we got it. … This is such a great motivation. It makes me want to work harder.

“Last year was really cramped, like we were just trying to push everything in a race,” McDonough said. “Now I feel like it’s your run and then you look at people and then you get your jacket back. There is more routine than before.

Stroman also said he looks forward to the great racing atmosphere.

“I feel like I see a lot more runners than I was able to do last year, a lot more diversity from different schools,” he said. “I see more high level skiers than usual. … It’s just a lot more fun to be back with these guys.

The road to these championships started on Wednesday, with many skiers admitting they still have a way to go before they are in state competition form.

“I was really nervous at the start of this race,” said Yeaton. “We haven’t been in the gates yet this year, it was my first time in the gates so far. I was a little nervous at first, skied cautiously and then felt better. I feel really good for this year.

We’ve finally arrived at the final week of this eventful NFL season, which has taught us that no team is good and everything is within reach. This includes end of season rewards, some of which are as unpredictable now as they were before the campaign began.

We offer you the odds and the best value for money for each of the best prices still on the market, starting with the biggest price of all …

Most Valuable Player

PLAYER CHANCES
Aaron Rodgers -400
Tom brady +500
Joe terrier +1000
Jonathan taylor +1600
Cooper Kupp +2000
Josh allen +5000
Patrick muhammad +5000
Kyler murray +8000
Matthew Stafford +10000
Dak prescott +10000
Justin herbert +10000
Derek carr +25000
Ryan tannehill +25000
Jalen hurts +5000

Looks like this award was decided in the public mind three weeks ago after Tom Brady’s poor performance against the Saints, despite Aaron Rodgers posting a worse stat line in their loss to New Orleans in Week 1. Still, Rodgers have grown solid over the past six weeks, throwing for 298.5 yards per game with an 18- intercept touchdown report. 0 to lead the Packers to NFC No. 1 seed.

My money is still on Brady, who has the advantage in passing yards (4,990) and touchdowns (40) and led the Buccaneers on five winning records, the second-tallest in the league. Voter fatigue is also worth considering after Rodgers won this award in 2020 with significantly better numbers than he will be releasing this season. He will probably win again, but I will try my luck with the GOAT at these odds.

Value: Brady +500

Offensive Rookie of the Year

PLAYER CHANCES
Ja’Marr Chase -225
Mac Jones +175

It’s actually a two-man run since the early weeks of the season when Ja’Marr Chase set the league on fire with four touchdowns in his first three games for the Bengals, and Mac Jones got away with it. turned out to be the only effective rookie QB this year. announced class.

Really, it’s a one-man run, especially after Chase’s record 266-yard, 3-TD performance on Sunday – setting all-time rookie marks for receiving yards in a game. and season (1,429). It doesn’t hurt that three of Jones’ worst campaign debuts came last month in the middle of a Patriots slip.

Value: Hunt -225

Offensive player of the year

PLAYER CHANCES
Jonathan taylor -110
Cooper Kupp -110
Aaron Rodgers +5000
Deebo Samuel +5000

A non-QB will win OPOY for the third season in a row, which only fits after the phenomenal campaigns we’ve seen from these two stars. Jonathan Taylor ran for 500 yards more than the next best fullback, and he’s been the catalyst for this burgeoning Colts team. Meanwhile, Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp is 11 catches and 135 receiving yards in the NFL records in a single season.

It will ultimately come down to the value versus the statistical CV. While both players have excelled in each, Taylor’s case is based on how he carried Indy to an 8-3 record over the past 11 weeks, while Kupp’s candidacy is strongly rooted in his quest. from the book of records. This award tends to favor those with garish (and potentially record) numbers, which should give Kupp the edge.

Value: Kupp -110

Defensive player of the year

PLAYER CHANCES
TJ Watt +150
Micah Parsons +200
Aaron Donald +750
Robert quinn +1000
Myles Garrett +1200
Trevon diggs +1600
Nick bosa +5000
Darius Leonardo +5000
Derwin james +10000
Jalen ramsey +10000
Chris Jones +10000
Bobby wagner +10000
Kevin Byard +10000
JC Jackson +10000

It was essentially a standoff between TJ Watt and Myles Garrett – and Trevon Diggs, to a lesser extent – for much of the year until Micah Parsons appeared a month ago as the heart of the Dominant defense of the Cowboys.

Can a rookie really win DPOY? We haven’t seen him since Lawrence Taylor in 1981. Parsons has been stellar and is a lock to win Defensive Rookie of the Year, which could hurt the linebacker’s chances of sweeping the board if voters prefer to spread. the wealth. The couriers have won eight of the last 10 DPOY awards, and Watt’s elite stat line (17.5 sacks, 31 QB hits, three forced fumbles, three digs) should be enough to close the deal.

Value: Watt +150

Returning Player of the Year

PLAYER CHANCES
Dak prescott -140
Joe terrier +110
Nick bosa +6500
Carson Wentz +10000

The NFL’s most ambiguous and unpredictable reward has gotten even crazier over the past two weeks, as Joe Burrow threw for a total of 971 yards and eight touchdowns and got into the MVP discussion. Dak Prescott has been impressive on his own, throwing seven touchdowns in the past two weeks. However, Burrow ranks ahead of Prescott in most passing stats with a week to go.

So is it the story or the statistics? While the story of Prescott’s return from a broken leg is the Platonic ideal for that price, Burrow is too hot to go here. Don’t be surprised if voters are using this as a way to express their appreciation for the Cincinnati passer without wasting an MVP vote.

Value: Terrier +110

COACH CHANCES
Zac taylor +150
Matt LaFleur +175
Mike vrabel +350
Bill belichick +2000
Nick sirianni +3500
Sean McVay +4000
Kliff kingsbury +5000
Frank Reich +5000
Mike mccarthy +5000
Sean mcdermott +5000
Rich bisaccia +5000
Brandon staley +8000
Andy reid +8000
Bruce ariens +10000
Sean payton +10000
Kyle shanahan +10000

It was the award Bill Belichick lost just three weeks ago as the Patriots led a seven-game winning streak and held first in the AFC standings. Since then, New England have lost two of three games, as the Bengals soared amid a three-game winning streak to clinch their first AFC North title in six years.

Cincinnati finished last in the division for three consecutive seasons after two third-place results before that, making it a compelling case to bet on Zac Taylor. Still, I’m hesitant to play odds this short on Taylor, Matt LaFleur, or any of those coaches with equally impressive nominations, especially in a market so prone to personal bias.

Call me a jerk, but I’ll gladly take Belichick with odds of 20-1 and hope voters reward the three-time winner for arguably his best coaching job to date.

Value: Belichick +2000

NASCAR could report a sponsorship deal related to “Come on Brandon!” »Song https://tasman-series.com/nascar-could-report-a-sponsorship-deal-related-to-come-on-brandon-song/ Sun, 02 Jan 2022 04:34:19 +0000 https://tasman-series.com/nascar-could-report-a-sponsorship-deal-related-to-come-on-brandon-song/ The NASCAR driver whose victory in a second tier race last fall inadvertently spawned a coded vulgar insult from President Joe Biden has unveiled a plan to compete next season in a car sponsored by a cryptocurrency that was derived of the sentence.

The NASCAR driver whose victory in a second tier race last fall inadvertently spawned a coded vulgar insult from President Joe Biden has unveiled a plan to compete next season in a car sponsored by a cryptocurrency that was derived of the sentence.

But it looks like Brandon Brown, 28, from Woodbridge, Va., Who was little known before his Oct. 2 win in an Xfinity Series race at Talladega, Ala. Superspeedway, may have taken the plunge by posting photos of its No.68, LGBcoin-sponsored red-white-and-blue Chevrolet, a nearly worthless cryptocurrency inspired by the slogan “Let’s go Brandon!”

NASCAR must approve all sponsors and paint schemes of all racing cars. According to a NASCAR employee familiar with the deliberations of the governing body, the governing body has yet to approve the sponsorship of LGBcoin.

Based on previous comments from NASCAR President Steve Phelps, who has led efforts to make stock car racing more inclusive, the racing body might be reluctant to give the division message the green light, no matter what. its coding.

Political analyst Larry J. Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, urged NASCAR to reject the plan.

“‘Let’s Go Brandon’ is nothing more than a rude middle finger of President Biden by Trump supporters – and there is no doubt that NASCAR fans are disproportionately pro-Trump,” Sabato wrote in an exchange of e-mails. “For the most part, NASCAR has admirably tried to disassociate itself from the partisan and racist meanness, so let’s hope they do the right thing and rescind this sponsorship deal … That’s not the image NASCAR should. want to project. “

Phelps, who was asked at his end-of-season press conference what he thought of NASCAR being associated with “Let’s Go Brandon!” song, called “unhappy”.

“We don’t want to associate with politics, left or right,” Phelps said. “We obviously have, and always have had, as a sport immense respect for the office of the president, regardless of who sits.

“… do we like that it sort of started with NASCAR and then it’s gaining ground elsewhere? No, we’re not happy with that. But we’ll continue to make sure we respect the office of the President .”

Phelps added that NASCAR will block any instance in which the phrase is used in conjunction with the NASCAR logo or marks.

It is unclear whether Brown realized that NASCAR must approve the sponsorships before his Fredericksburg-based team, Brandonbilt Motorsports, announced on Thursday its 33-race deal with the LGBcoin.io cryptocurrency coin for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. Neither he nor a spokesperson for the team responded to a request for comment.

The press release makes no mention of Biden and characterizes the product, which has a disclaimer that makes it clear that it has “no intrinsic value” and should not be purchased in a strong belief in the American Dream. “

James Koutoulas, founder of Typhoon Capital Management and the investor behind the coin, called Brown an example or perseverance and “truly America’s driver.”

“We are proud to support Brandon this season, to help him pursue his American dream,” Koutoulas said in the team press release. “If we do our job right, when you think of us and you hear, ‘Let’s go Brandon,’ you’ll think and feel, ‘Let’s go to America. “Https://www.texarkanagazette.com/news/2022 / jan / 01 / nascar-could-red-flag-sponsorship-deal-related-to /”

The story of how Brown’s name has been appropriated as a euphemism for “F — Joe Biden” needs explanation.

After Brown’s first career victory at Talladega, the crowd erupted into chants of “F — Joe Biden,” which an NBC Sports reporter leading the on-track interview apparently heard as “Come on Brandon! ” She announced on the air that the crowd was expressing support for the driver.

The phrase quickly established itself as a coded message of animosity towards Biden that was chanted en masse at several sporting events and rallies. Last week, an Oregon man used the phrase during a Christmas Eve phone call with Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, causing an avalanche of attention; he later said he was considering running for office. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., Wore a red dress emblazoned with “Let’s Go Brandon” during a November 4 meeting with former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla. and then tweeted a photo with the caption: “It’s not a phrase, it’s a movement! #LGB.”

Brown has been less explicit about his own views.

In a December 20 editorial in Newsweek, he wrote about his fear of being “canceled” by sponsors because of the controversy and explained how, deep down, he is a pure runner with no time for politics.

But Brown also hinted at his growing solidarity with those who feel the current administration is out of step or hurting them.

“I will also no longer be silent about the situation I find myself in and why millions of Americans chant my name,” Brown wrote. “I hear them, even though Washington can’t hear them.”

Corporate sponsorship is the lifeblood of auto racing, as the prize money falls far short of the costs of putting even moderately competitive cars into service.

As Brown noted in his Newsweek comment, “… in my world, there is no car to drive without sponsors.”

In this business model, NASCAR racing cars serve as rolling billboards designed to grab the attention of ticket holders and viewers as they spin at nearly 200 miles an hour.

But just as the Federal Communications Commission regulates what products can be advertised on television, NASCAR regulates what products can be displayed on cars that participate in its events.

This has been a tricky line for the police – even before the current division in US politics and the viral spread of “Let’s Go Brandon”.

In recent decades, NASCAR has allowed the sponsorship of race cars by political candidates, but has not allowed explicit political messages.

NASCAR cleared the NRA trackside billboards, but angered gun rights activists in 2019 for rejecting ads from assault rifle manufacturers.

While years ago NASCAR banned the display of the Confederate flag on its racing cars, the sport sparked a backlash among a segment of its supporters by extending it in June 2020 to a fan ban. display the Confederate flag in its stands and infields.

The question NASCAR now faces regarding the Brown LGBcoin sponsorship is whether it will allow a car to be used as a billboard to promote a product that its maker insists is patriotic but which is viewed by many as a coded message of political hatred.

FUNABASHI, Chiba (Kyodo) – Takeshi Yokoyama led Fan Choice No.1 Efforia to victory in the 66th Arima Kinen on Sunday, winning the penultimate Category 1 race on the 2021 Japanese racing calendar with a winning prize of 300 million yen ($ 2.6 million).

The three-year-old colt, winner of this year’s Satsuki-sho and Tenno-sho, completed the 2,500-meter turf race at Nakayama Racecourse in 2 minutes and 32 seconds, crossing line 3 / 4 a step ahead of Deep Bond. Chrono Genesis finished third, 1/2 length ahead.

The defending champion and second-seeded Chrono Genesis, who was due to be retired and bred in 2022, was unable to win the last race of her career. The five-year-old mare is a four-time G1 winner on the JRA circuit.

“(Efforia) did a 120% job when he won the Fall Tenno-sho (October 31), and I couldn’t expect it, but I thought 80-90% would be enough.” , Yokoyama said.

“It was the longest distance we have done together, but he was relaxed when he needed it. We kept a good pace until we got into the home stretch and closed well.”

The Arima Kinen is made up of a peloton which is partially determined by a fan vote and is made up of many of Japan’s leading horses. Tuesday’s Hopeful Stakes for 2-year-olds on the same track is the last race on the calendar.

Los Angeles, California, December 24, 2021 – (PR.com) – Mundus Artium Press announces the 2021 Gjenima Prize awarded to Korean poet, critic and scholar Choi Dongho.

Created in 2004, the annual Gjenima Prize rewards the creator of an important body of literary works or of a single major literary achievement that has played a role in current history.

Choi Dongho personally received the award from the chairman of the Gjenima Prize committee, Dr. Gjeke Marinaj, at a ceremony held on October 5 at Korea University in Seoul.

The ceremony included congratulations from Korea University President Jintaek Jeong, as well as introductory remarks by Byeong-ho Jeong, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, and Seong-ho Yoo, Dean of the College of Humanities at the University. by Hanyang.

Emeritus professor of Korean language and literature, having started teaching at Korea University in 1988, Choi Dongho served as president of the Society of Korean Poets, as well as founding president of Korea’s Poetry Loving Society.

He is currently the director of the Hoam Foundation, a leading Korean organization supporting academic and research activities in science and culture.

Active as a critic for 40 years, Choi Dongho devotes himself more and more to poetry. Her latest collection, Monarch Butterfly (Mundus Artium Press, 2021), features English translations of poems selected from volumes published in Korean over several decades.

Anthologies of Choi Dongho’s poetry have also been published in translation in Russia, Mongolia and Romania.

Published with support from the Daesan Foundation for the International Promotion of Korean Literature, Monarch Butterfly has been acclaimed for “the succinct and evocative intensity” which “emanates from skillful mental concentration” and “deliberately guides the reader through a new way of knowing who leaves typical conventions, ”as noted in a review of the book by Daily Press.

Choi Dongho’s poetry expresses a Buddhist worldview. He has established himself as a supporter of what he calls “extreme lyrical poetry”, or guekseojeongsi in Korean. Characterized by conciseness and inclusion of dramatic elements alongside lyricism and spiritual orientation, extreme lyrical poetry represents an effort to reclaim Korean poetic traditions in the wake of the popularity of deconstructionism.

Recognized as the heir to the legacy of the great modern Korean poets Cho Chi-hu and Jeong Ji-yong, Choi Dongho fully embodies the vision of the Gjenima Prize of “the majestic spirit of writing for the sake of the race. human ”.

Choi Dongho has been a visiting scholar at UCLA and Waseda University, and has participated in the University of Iowa’s international writing program.

Its main prizes and accolades include the Modern Buddhist, Daesan, Park Dujin, Gosan Yun Sundo, Yusim and Kim Satgot Literary Prizes, as well as the Manhae Grand Prize for Literature and Art.

Mercedes-AMG has named the winners of their first in-brand customer racing championship, as well as the trophy winners in a postponed awards season from 2020 as much of the racing schedule was disrupted by the global pandemic.

Indeed, the decision was taken to award specific rewards for the combined seasons of 2020 and 2021, the Championship being divided into eight categories: DRIVER, PRO-DRIVER, DRIVER GT3, PRO-DRIVER GT3, DRIVER GT4, PRO-DRIVER GT4, TEAMS GT3 and TEAMS GT4.

All customer teams and all drivers who have raced with a Mercedes-AMG GT3, GT4 or SLS AMG GT3 in the past two years were eligible to participate. Performance teams and factory-backed performance pilots were excluded from participation.

The trophy in the DRIVER category went to Valentin Pierburg, the 34-year-old driver showed consistent good performance with the Mercedes-AMG GT3 from SPS Automotive Performance. His tally in 2021 included three class wins and numerous podiums, among others in the GT World Challenge Europe where he finished second in the Pro-Am standings.

At the same time, Pierburg also won the DRIVER GT3 title of the Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing Championship. As a thank you, the Swiss-based driver receives high-quality leather products from AMG partner Santoni as well as the coveted main prize, a Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé.

For his victory in the PRO-DRIVER category, Jim Pla also received a C 63 Coupé. The 29-year-old has convinced in several series of races and in 2021 he became runner-up in the Pro-Am class of the European GT4 series as well as third in the Silver category of the GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup. His outstanding achievements with the Mercedes-AMG GT4 also earned him the top spot in the PRO-DRIVER GT4 class and a high-quality sim racing wheel from Italian partner AMG Cube Controls as a reward.

Jean-Luc Beaubelique, who notably shared the Mercedes-AMG GT4 of the AKKA ASP team with Pla in the European GT4 Series, is also rewarded. As the winner of the DRIVER GT4 title, the 58-year-old receives a Cube Controls steering wheel.

Russell Ward was honored as the winner in the PRO-DRIVER GT3 class, primarily for competing in American racing series and, among other things, for winning the legendary 24-hour race at Daytona. For its performance it received a selection of fine leather products from partner AMG Santoni.

AKKA ASP won the trophies for the most successful TEAM GT3 (top photo) and the best TEAM GT4. The French team secured second place in this year’s GT World Challenge and won the title in the GT4 France Pro-Am category with the Mercedes-AMG GT4. Unlike the honored pilots, the teams received generous sums of money.

Here’s how the winners were determined

As there had not been enough races in 2020 to determine the winners fairly, a two-season classification schedule was in place for the first time this year. As a rule, separate points are awarded to GT3 and GT4 cars. The basis are the results of the classifications by race obtained after November 12, 2019. Points are awarded according to the usual system of 25-18-15-12-10-8-6-4-2-1. As additional factors, the total number of participations, the distance of the involved race as well as the level of the series are taken into account.

Christoph Sagemüller, Head of Mercedes-AMG Motorsport: “Having already had to do without our end-of-season celebration last year, the disappointment was huge as we cannot host a physical event again. Therefore, we sincerely thank all Mercedes-AMG partners who have remained loyal to us during these difficult times. Without their support, it could not have been done this way. The provision of attractive non-cash prizes further enhances the award ceremony. We are particularly pleased that a considerable amount has been raised again this year for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. This allowed us to pursue our passion for motorsport and at the same time to do something good for underprivileged children.

Stefan Wendl, Head of Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing: “At Mercedes-AMG, the annual awards ceremony for the participants of our customer sport program has become a tradition. And, of course, we’re especially happy to honor the accomplishments after two seasons for our successful client racing teams. Each winner more than deserved their prize, especially considering the circumstances which have at times been quite difficult this year. In this way, I want to thank all the teams and all the drivers for their outstanding achievements and I hope it will be possible to do it again in person next year.
