Let’s take a closer look at that James Castleman catch

Posted in nhafasys on November 16th, 2019

first_imgHe performs like a champ and starts racking up his YAC immediately — watch No. 9 (poor guy) go limp as he tries to take down the big man. Also our friend No. 31 is back. He tries to help No. 9…kind of. It doesn’t amount to much.Here’s what Castleman said about the catch.“He threw it to me, concentrate, concentrate, catch. Took off and I started running and they hit me.” More like he hit them…Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 3.24.38 PMPhoto via USATSIHere’s the video of that. Look at those paint chips!Castleman kept going though even though he didn’t know whether No. 9 was dead.“I didn’t go down so I kept running and I was like nobody has hit me yet and kept looking to see where they were at.”This was the moment everyone on Washington’s sideline realized what was happening. Here’s a look via okstate.Screen Shot 2015-01-05 at 3.25.36 PMFella No. 1 is likely the kicker who didn’t make his grades and is just thankful he’s not on defense right now. Guy No. 2 is a fourth string QB looking for a 15-point play in case OSU scores.No. 3 is like “welp, they did it again” and No. 4 will have a job in insurance by the time spring ball starts.Castleman continued on. Watch him cut (“cut”) back towards the middle of the field as No. 20 jumps on his back for a ride.“I glanced up at the screen (video board) and I thought, ‘Oh gosh, they’re right there.’ I tried cutting back in and that wasn’t happening and the check engine light came on and I had to go down.”At this point in the broadcast you can hear Kanell screaming in the background “GO BIG FELLA!” which was pretty awesome.The whole thing was just a truly unbelievable ending of a very bizarre season. In a lot of ways it almost had to end this way.Chris Petersen, your thoughts?“When you get in bowl games there are always some new little wrinkles and he (Castleman) got away from us a couple of times.”I should say so. Gundy even admitted he should have gotten No. 91 involved in the offense earlier in the season. “I thought that I ought to be hit in the head with a board for not using him on offense.”The Oklahoman turned the moment into a great headline and Castleman crushed the postgame quote:Castleman also noted that this isn’t a game he would soon forget. “Coach (Glenn) Spencer talks about that you’re always going to remember your last game. I promise you, I’ll remember this last game.”We all will.Here’s the entire thing in video form (sorry, no sound).Totally Tickets is your source for Oklahoma State football tickets.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! James Castleman is a large, large man. (USATSI)James Castleman is a large, large man. (USATSI)It was too much to be believed as it was happening.Part of the reason for that is that it was taking place at 1 in the morning Oklahoma time but part of it was because, well forgive my unbelief, but Mason Rudolph and James Castleman were catching passes in an Oklahoma State bowl win and that’s just so far from where OSU was in October that it’s borderline unfathomable.I did want to take one last look at the Castleman catch and rumble for 48 yards because it was one of my favorite plays in recent OSU history.Deep dive time — let’s go.As Castleman trots out onto the field Danny Kanell says the following on the broadcast:“Would you trust a 320-lb. defensive lineman to carry the football in this situation?” His play-by-play guy responds “Would I? I would trust that guy to do almost anything.”He turned out to be correct even though right before the play Kanell followed it with “they would never throw it, would they? A little play-action…”The first amazing thing about the play is how smooth No. 91 looks when he goes in motion. We have fullbacks and tight ends that don’t look this fleet of foot when going in motion.The next thing is No. 31. Poor No. 31. I’d fall down too if Castleman was running straight at me like that looking like he wanted to truck stick me. And he never recovers.This is when Castleman knew he might be getting the look from Rudolph.“Honestly, I didn’t think he was going to throw the ball to me until the play was going and the guy that was supposed to be guarding me fell,” Castleman said. “I was like, ‘Oh man, Mason’s going to throw me the ball. Oh gosh, what’s going to happen?’”Then the actual catching of the thing. Gundy said Castleman probably has the best hands on the team and I believe him. This is an incredibly difficult maneuver — especially given the situation — and Castleman has never done it before in a game!last_img read more

Heavy rains wreak havoc kills 2 in Houston ahead of Howdy Modi

Posted in xsaanadb on October 18th, 2019

first_imgHouston: The stage is all set for the mega “Howdy Modi” event in which President Donald Trump will join Prime Minister Narendra Modi where they will address over 50,000 Indian-Americans, but the torrential rains triggered by a tropical storm have wreaked havoc in Houston, killing 2 persons. Tropical Depression Imelda slammed Texas on Thursday, causing devastating flooding, power outages and prompting urgent rescues and warnings across southeastern Texas for people to stay indoors. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared a state of emergency for 13 counties in southeastern Texas. Two persons were killed on Thursday. One was electrocuted and drowned while trying to move his horse and another man drowned after driving his van into floodwaters and submerged, according to sheriff’s office. However, the volunteers of the “Howdy Modi” event are upbeat and confident that all the attendees at the sprawling NRG stadium in Houston will have an experience they will cherish all their lives. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen Leading volunteer Achalesh Amar told PTI that over 1,500 volunteers have been working round the clock to make the event a grand success. “We are going to have a fantastic programme on Sunday”, he said. The mammoth event reflects the growing size, power and complexity of the Indian-American community, both in the Houston area and the US, he said. President Trump, along with a number of high-ranking US government officials – including governors, members of Congress and mayors – will join Prime Minister Modi to attend the “Howdy Modi!” event on Sunday. “This is going to be a kind of family celebration. We want to say, ”Look at our community here! We are successful. We are strong. We have done good things for Houston!” We would like Modi to know all of this,” organisers said. Swapan Dhairyawan, president of the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Houston (IACCGH), said he has witnessed how Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner”s visit to India in November 2018 enhanced the bilateral trade. Dhairyawan said he was confident that Modi”s visit to Houston and his meeting with President Trump and top CEOs will “make new inroads in furthering business opportunities in oil and gas, healthcare and Innovation Houston”s three core sectors”. “We need a non-stop flight from Houston to New Delhi. Modi announced a direct flight from San Francisco to New Delhi during his 2015 speech in Silicon Valley, chamber members hope the same happens at Houston,” he said. Jagdip Ahluwalia, founding Secretary and Executive Director of the IACCGH, said President Trump attending the event was a sign of the “growing importance of the US-India relationship”. “From 2018 to May 2019, India moved from being Houston”s 9th largest trading partner to its 4th largest trading partner preceded only by Mexico, China and Brazil”, he said. According to the US Census Bureau Foreign Trade Division, the trade between Houston and India is up 82.2 per cent, with Houston exports to India up 106.5 per cent and India”s exports to Houston up by 48.8 per cent. “Modi”s last visit to Washington and meeting with Trump led to a multibillion dollar deal by India to buy US crude oil, which was multi billion dollar deal by India to buy US liquefied natural gas, a lot of which will ship from our region and we are positive Modi”s visit to the home of the energy hub, NASA will lead to a new series of bilateral opportunities between our region which IACCGH is here to help facilitate and support,” Ahluwalia added. Before Prime Minister Modi will deliver the community address, he is scheduled to have a round table meeting with various energy-related top business leaders. There are also some community-related brief meetings involved during his short trip to Houston, which includes meeting Kashmiri Pandits settled in the US. Jugal Malani, chairperson of the Texas India Forum, said “Our community loves Prime Minister Modi and the multi-million-dollar event is fully funded through resources raised within the community. The mega cultural show will highlight Indian heritage and we have performers from all across America joining in”. Meanwhile the Houston Chronicle reported that the US-based relatives of two Kashmiris have sued Prime Minister Modi in a federal court on Thursday ahead of his visit in Houston, alleging that his unilateral action to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 has led to the detention of many persons. Some protests by the International Humanitarian Foundation of Houston are also being planned against Modi”s visit and some pro-Pakistan and anti-Kashmir billboards have also appeared at some places in the city. According to sources, over 10,000 people will protest the Indian government’s decision to end Jammu and Kashmir’s special status. However, the Governor’s Office, city officials along with a huge pool of volunteers, are working towards the grand success of the event.last_img read more

Berlin Lucas Hernandez the most expensive signin

Posted in nhlnlkaw on October 18th, 2019

first_imgBerlin: Lucas Hernandez, the most expensive signing in Bayern Munich’s history, says “unbelievable” fees are currently being paid on the transfer market, putting pressure on the players concerned to justify the astronomical sums. The 23-year-old 2018 World Cup winner signed for 80 million euros from Atletico Madrid and became a Bayern player in July after recovering from knee surgery in March. The Frenchman cost nearly double the price of Bayern’s previous record signings — Corentin Tolisso, from Lyon in 2017/18 for 41.5 million euros, and Javi Martinez for 40 million euros from Bilbao in 2012/13. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuThe price Bayern paid for Hernandez is dwarfed by the world record 220 million euros Paris Saint Germain paid Barcelona for Brazil forward Neymar in August 2017. “Transfer fees have recently become more and more exaggerated. Unbelievable sums are being paid,” Hernandez told broadcaster DAZN. He has played the full 90 minutes in four of his last seven games and is set to feature when the Bundesliga leaders play Tottenham Hotspur away in the Champions League on Tuesday. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersHernandez says he is obliged to justify the price tag Bayern paid. “Due to all the trust the club has placed in me with this sum, it is now up to me to pay it back on the pitch and to give my all,” he added. “One day the club, should also be proud of the fact that they spent this money for me.” He expects a tough away clash in London against Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs after helping Bayern win their opening Group B game 3-0 at home to Red Star Belgrade a fortnight ago when Tottenham threw away a two-goal lead in a 2-2 draw at Olympiakos. Striker Robert Lewandowski has scored in each of Bayern’s last eight games, leaving him with 12 goals in nine matches this season, with Philiipe Countinho, on loan from Barcelona, is superbly running Munich’s attack. “It will be a huge and difficult game for us, but we have good players with high individual quality and we are a great team,” added Hernandez.last_img read more

Paris Serge Gnabry scored four secondhalf goals

Posted in usaewrcm on October 18th, 2019

first_imgParis: Serge Gnabry scored four second-half goals as Bayern Munich came from behind to hand last season’s runners-up Tottenham Hotspur a stunning 7-2 home defeat in the Champions League on Tuesday after Real Madrid escaped with a 2-2 draw against Club Brugge. There were routine wins for Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid, while Cristiano Ronaldo netted in a comfortable Juventus victory, but most of the drama was in north London. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju The evening started well for Spurs as Son Heung-min fired across Manuel Neuer and into the far corner to give Mauricio Pochettino’s team the lead against Bayern. However, the German champions came roaring back to leave Spurs on the receiving end of the biggest ever home defeat for an English team in Europe. It was the first time they had ever conceded seven goals in a home game. Two super strikes from Joshua Kimmich and Robert Lewandowski had Bayern ahead at the break and Gnabry, the former Arsenal winger, then scored two goals two minutes apart to make it four early in the second half. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters Harry Kane reduced the arrears from the penalty spot, but Gnabry ran through to complete his hat-trick on 83 minutes and he smacked in the seventh goal after Lewandowski had netted his second of the evening. Gnabry is the first player to score four goals against English opposition since Lionel Messi achieved the same feat for Barcelona against Arsenal in 2010. The result means last season’s beaten finalists already face a struggle to qualify from Group B after they drew at Olympiakos in their opening game. The Greek club were beaten 3-1 at Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday despite Ruben Semedo giving them the lead as the second-half sending-off of Yassine Benzia for the visitors changed the game. Milos Vulic equalised for Red Star before late headers by Nemanja Milunovic and Richmond Boakye secured victory for the Serbian side, who go to Spurs next. Meanwhile, Manchester City beat Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium to make it two wins from two in Group C. Ilkay Gundogan hit the bar for Pep Guardiola’s team in the first half before Riyad Mahrez squared for Raheem Sterling to tap in the 66th-minute opener. Sterling then turned provider for Phil Foden to secure the points in stoppage time for City. – Casemiro rescues Real – ========================= In the same group, Israeli forward Manor Solomon netted the winner deep in injury time as Shakhtar Donetsk came from behind to beat Atalanta 2-1 in Milan. Duvan Zapata had given the Italian side a first-half lead after Josip Ilicic had a penalty saved, but Junior Moraes equalised for the Ukrainian champions prior to the break, before Solomon’s late heroics. In Madrid, record 13-time champions Real were 2-0 down at half-time at home to Club Brugge, for whom the Nigerian forward Emmanuel Dennis scored a first-half brace. But Zinedine Zidane’s team came storming back as Sergio Ramos headed in before Casemiro claimed a dramatic equaliser in the 85th minute, seconds after Ruud Vormer had been sent off for the visitors. It is a first point for Real in Group A, which is led by PSG. The French club, again missing the suspended Neymar, beat Galatasaray 1-0 in Istanbul thanks to Mauro Icardi’s second-half goal. – New Ronaldo landmark – ======================== Meanwhile, Gonzalo Higuain set Juventus on their way to a 3-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen in Turin before he set up Federico Bernardeschi to double their lead and Ronaldo completed the scoring late on. That strike means the 34-year-old Portuguese forward has now scored a Champions League goal against 33 different opponents, equalling a record set by Raul. Maurizio Sarri’s team share first place in Group D with Atletico, who ran out 2-0 winners away to Lokomotiv Moscow thanks to second-half goals by Joao Felix and Thomas Partey.last_img read more

Taipei Five bodies have been recovered from under

Posted in dvpofysu on October 18th, 2019

first_imgTaipei: Five bodies have been recovered from under a collapsed bridge in Taiwan, rescuers said Wednesday, as the search continued for the last person missing after the structure smashed onto fishing boats moored underneath. Taiwan’s National Fire Agency said the deceased were fishing workers from Indonesia and the Philippines whose bodies were found in waters near two damaged boats late Tuesday and earlier Wednesday. “The search and rescue mission continues,” transport minister Lin Chia-lung told reporters, adding evidence was being collected for an investigation. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportThe Philippines labour ministry confirmed that two of its nationals were killed while one remained missing and five others were injured in the incident. The ministry pledged assistance to the affected workers and their families. Dramatic CCTV footage captured the moment the 140-metre (460-foot) long single-arch bridge came crashing down early on Tuesday morning in Nanfangao, on Taiwan’s east coast. In the video, a vertical cable at the centre of the bridge’s steel arch suddenly snaps. The road then collapses into the water, crashing down on three fishing boats as a petrol tanker, which nearly made it across, also plunged into the water. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsTwelve people were injured, including six Filipino and three Indonesian fishing workers, the Taiwanese driver of the petrol tanker, and two coastguard personnel. The petrol tanker burst into flames at some point after it hit the water, sending a thick plume of black smoke into the air. The local landmark was completed in 1998 and spanned a small fishing port. It was featured in a number of TV dramas and commercials. Taiwan was skirted by a typhoon on Monday night, which brought heavy rains and strong winds to parts of the east coast. But at the time of the bridge collapse, the weather was fine. Taiwan has a huge fishing industry and many of those who work on its boats are low-paid migrant workers from countries such as the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam. Previous serious bridge incidents in Taiwan have mostly been related to typhoons.last_img read more

Pretoria Nigerias president is visiting South Af

Posted in xsaanadb on October 18th, 2019

first_imgPretoria: Nigeria’s president is visiting South Africa’s leader after a wave of attacks on foreigners angered many African countries and led to an extraordinary airlift to take hundreds of Nigerians home. Thursday’s meeting between Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa is also a meeting of Africa’s two largest economies, with more than 3.3 billion in trade between them in 2018. South Africa has been making efforts to mend ties with Nigeria and others after its government faced criticism for not explicitly speaking out against xenophobia at first but instead framing the violence as crime. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: Report More than 12 people were killed and more than 700 arrested after bands of South Africans in Johannesburg and the capital, Pretoria, launched attacks against foreign-owned shops and stalls, looting and burning the small businesses and attacking some shopkeepers. Nigeria’s foreign minister called the attacks “sickening” and the government recalled its high commissioner to South Africa. South Africa temporarily closed its diplomatic missions in Nigeria, citing concerns over staff safety. In Nigeria’s megacity Lagos, operations of South African telecommunications giant MTN were targeted in retaliatory attacks. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests South Africa’s president now says his government is “totally committed” against attacks on foreign nationals. He acknowledges frustration about the country’s high unemployment and sluggish economy but has told countrymen not to take it out on foreigners. Outbreaks of violence against Nigerians and citizens of other African nations have regularly erupted in South Africa in recent years, with some South Africans accusing foreigners of peddling illegal drugs or taking jobs. The attacks on Nigerians have led to growing sentiments against South African companies doing business in Nigeria, with many people calling for their closure. The periodic violence against foreigners in South Africa is in sharp contrast to the hospitality that other African nations showed to black South Africans during their long fight against the harsh system of white minority rule known as apartheid, which ended in 1994.last_img read more

Posted in sevjeoym on October 18th, 2019

first_imgParis: A man wielding a knife stabbed and killed four officers at the police headquarters in the heart of central Paris on Thursday, before being shot dead. The premises were cordoned off after the lunchtime attack in the historic centre of Paris, usually thronged with tourists, and a dozens of police and emergency vehicles had converged at the scene, AFP journalists reported. At least one metro station in the vicinity of the building, which is close to Notre-Dame cathedral and other major tourist attractions, was closed. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportSources told AFP the attacker was shot dead by police in the courtyard of the building, where he was employed. The man worked in an administrative capacity but it was not immediately clear what his precise work role was. An emergency message was broadcast over loudspeakers at the courthouse next door, announcing “an attack” at the police headquarters and stating the area was “under surveillance”. Interior Minister Christophe Castaner, who was due to visit Turkey later on Thursday, postponed his trip to visit the scene of the attack. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protests”People were running everywhere, there was crying everywhere,” said Emery Siamandi, and interpreter who was in the building when the attack happened. “I heard a shot, I gathered it was inside,” he told AFP. “Moments later, I saw police officers crying. They were in a panic.” Investigators suspect a workplace dispute sparked the deadliest attack on police in France in years, sources said, but there were no immediate further details. The Paris prosecutor is at the scene, but anti-terror agencies have not been involved at this stage. “Did he snap, or was there some other reason? It’s still too early to say,” Loic Travers, head of the Alliance Police union for the Paris region, told BFM television. There was no immediate indication of the possible motives of the attacker. France has been rocked since 2015 by a succession of attacks blamed on jihadists, which have included both large synchronised assaults and isolated knife and gun attacks, killing more than 250 people. The country remains on high alert after these attacks. In January 2015, two men armed with Kalashnikov rifles stormed the Paris offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people. A policewoman was killed just outside Paris the following day, while a gunman took hostages at a Jewish supermarket, four of whom were killed. On November 15 that year, France was hit by the worst terror attacks in its history. Islamic State jihadists armed with assault rifles and explosives struck outside a France-Germany football match at the national stadium, Paris cafes, and the Bataclan concert hall in a coordinated assault that left 130 people dead and more than 350 wounded. On July 14, 2016 a Tunisian ploughed a truck through a large crowd gathered for Bastille Day fireworks in the Mediterranean city of Nice. The attack killed 86 people and injured more than 400. The attack at the police headquarters also came as tension grows within the ranks of the police force, who have been stretched to the limit by policing the “yellow vest” protests against President Emmanuel Macron and have themselves been accused of heavy-handed tactics. Thousands of French police officers demonstrated in Paris on Wednesday for better working conditions in a rare protest by the force, against the backdrop of a spike in suicides within their ranks. Organisers estimated that 27,000 officers took part, out of 150,000 police staff nationwide. No independent estimate was available.last_img read more

Thailand Judge shoots himself in court after railing at justice system

Posted in dvpofysu on October 18th, 2019

first_imgBangkok: A Thai judge shot himself in the chest in front of a packed court after acquitting several murder suspects and decrying the kingdom’s judicial system in an impassioned speech broadcast on Facebook Live. Critics say Thailand’s courts often work in favour of the rich and powerful, while delivering swift and harsh sentences on ordinary people for minor offences. But it is virtually unheard of for judges to criticise the system. Kanakorn Pianchana, a judge at Yala court in the heart of the insurgency-battered Thai south, was delivering the verdict for five Muslim suspects in a gun murder case on Friday afternoon. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportHe acquitted the group, delivered a courtroom plea for a cleaner justice system, before pulling out a handgun and shooting himself in the chest. “You need clear and credible evidence to punish someone. So if you’re not sure, don’t punish them,” the judge said addressing the court and broadcasting his words on his phone on Facebook live. “I’m not saying that the five defendants didn’t commit the crimes, they might have done so… “But the judicial process needs to be transparent and credible… punishing wrong people makes them scapegoats.” The Facebook feed then cut, but witnesses said Kanakorn recited a legal oath in front of the former Thai king’s portrait, before shooting himself in the chest. “He is being treated by the doctors and is out of danger,” Suriyan Hongvilai, the spokesman of the Office of the Judiciary, told AFP on Saturday. “He shot himself because of ‘personal stress’. But the cause behind the stress is not clear and will be investigated,” he said. No Thai judge has ever breached protocol by making similar statements on the wider justice system, he added.last_img read more
