British athlete Derek Redmond, who was in fine form heading into the Barcelona Games, had posted the fastest time in his heat but tore his hamstring on the back straight of the 400 meters semi-final. But instead of seeking medical attention, he attempted to hobble to the finish line. As he rounded the curve, he was joined by his father, who barged past track officials and waved them away, holding his inconsolable son and crossing the line together as the fans at the stadium gave them a standing ovation. “Our thoughts are with Derek Redmond and his family following the death of his father, Jim,” the Olympic Games said on Twitter on Tuesday. “Together, they brought us one of the most inspirational moments in Olympic history.” Team Great Britain said, “Rest in peace Jim … [Read more...] about Jim Redmond, who helped his injured son cross the finish line at the 1992 Olympics, dies at 81
1 Sports A Falcon player with autism got into a recent game against East Catholic and scored a memorable goal. Tim Jensen , Patch Staff Posted Reply AVON, CT — A freshman field hockey player from Avon High School scored a special goal in a Sept. 27 game against East Catholic, made possible by the selfless sportsmanship of some opposing Eagle players. Kaylie Murphy, who has autism and had never played field hockey prior to this season, went into the game in the third quarter with the Falcons holding a 5-0 lead. "We threw a lot of our players in who haven't had a lot of varsity playing time," Avon coach Terri Ziemnicki said. "We felt this is going to be the time for Kaylie to also get in and play with the team." Ziemnicki had not said anything to the East Catholic team about Kaylie's situation, but the visitors figured it out. "They saw my players working with her," Ziemnicki said. "Kaylie was hitting the ball … [Read more...] about Special Moment Of Sportsmanship A Thrill For Avon Field Hockey Player

Eric Heyl , Patch Staff Posted Reply ROSS TOWNSHIP, PA - This is a first in the two-month old awesomeness that is Patch’s Pittsburgh rebooted resurgence. For the second weekend in a row, the same activity tops our list of cool weekend things to do around town. It’s a Penguins-Senators Eastern Conference Finals playoff game. This one occurs May 21 at 3 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena. That’s clearly is a better option than the other professional sporting event occurring in Pittsburgh on Sunday. The Penguins are playing for the right to move on to the Stanley Cup finals; the Pirates, who play the Philadelphia Phillies at PNC Park, are playing for the right to improve their record to a mediocre level. The Penguins game is sold out, of course. But we found resale Penguins-Senators … [Read more...] about Penguins Playoff Game Again Tops 5 Weekend Things To Do Around North Hills
Photo: Emmanuel Dunand/AFP via Getty Images For the last 14 years, Wall Street has lived in fear that something on the scale of Lehman Brothers’ collapse would come again and that, when it did, we would have no warning about the financial destruction it would reap. This weekend, the markets zeroed in on Credit Suisse as the first major bank to possibly fail during the current global financial turndown . Based in Zurich, Credit Suisse isn’t exactly a household name here in the U.S., but it is a key part of the New York financial firmament, with a large office in Manhattan and about $1.5 trillion in assets, meaning that a blowup would be about as risky to the financial system as Wells Fargo’s and Morgan Stanley’s — the most visible investment bank to back Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter . Credit Suisse has already seen serious trouble in the last 18 months after the investment firm Archegos Capital collapsed, causing the bank to lose about $5.5 billion, close some of its … [Read more...] about Why Is Everyone Freaking Out About Credit Suisse?
Twitter’s new techno-king. Photo: Jordan Vonderhaar/Bloomberg via Getty Images Most court cases settle. This is a very inconvenient fact for lovers of courtroom drama and lawyers alike, who often have to prepare for trials that get scuttled at the last minute — sometimes on the eve of trial, sometimes even after the trial has begun . But for most litigants, and particularly for corporations and rich people, settlements are attractive because they eliminate uncertainty, downside risk, and the potential for embarrassment. This was a lesson I learned early in my days as a corporate lawyer , working on cases not dissimilar from Elon Musk’s fight with Twitter. For that reason, the news yesterday that Musk is looking to avoid going to trial in a couple of weeks against Twitter was not exactly shocking from a legal perspective. In a letter to Twitter , Musk’s lawyers announced that he intends “to proceed to closing” the deal to buy Twitter that he signed back in April on the … [Read more...] about Decoding Elon Musk’s Legal Surrender

Nicole Charky , Patch Staff Posted | Updated Reply CULVER CITY, CA — Mike Richards was fired Tuesday as executive producer of "Jeopardy!" and "Wheel of Fortune" just nine days after stepping down as host of the quiz show after inappropriate comments he made on podcasts years ago surfaced.

New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge belted his 61st home run of the season in Toronto on Wednesday night, tying the American League record set by fellow pinstripe great Roger Maris. Judge's latest long ball came against Blue Jays pitcher Tim Mayza in the seventh inning at Rogers Centre , breaking a 3-3 tie and leading New York to an 8-3 victory. The A.L. MVP candidate crushed a 94 mph sinker into the Toronto bullpen, beyond the left field wall. The historic home run ball was picked up by Blue Jays bullpen coach Matt Buschmann , who gave it to the Yankees. Judge had been without a homer for seven consecutive games, a non-noteworthy fact for virtually all other players but a drought by his lofty 2022 standard. The outfielder has still very been productive in his homer-less stretch, drawing 12 walks and scoring five runs as the Yankees went 6-1. “It’s an incredible honor, that's for sure" Judge told reporters after the game in Toronto. "Definitely some … [Read more...] about Aaron Judge slams 61st home run of 2022, tying the single-season AL record
On the eve of President Putin’s self-proclaimed “annexation” of Ukraine’s regions, trouble was brewing in Russia—and everyone knew it. Social media was abuzz with the anticipation that Ukraine’s Armed Forces were about to reclaim Lyman from the Russian invaders . The mood in Moscow was a lot different than the 2014 celebration of the annexation of Crimea. Crowds that were bussed-in for the rally half-heartedly chanted “hooray,” and Putin himself seemed to be forcing the look of jubilation. Sergey Mardan, host of the radio show Saturday Mardan , openly questioned the propriety of organizing a celebratory concert during the same time when Russian troops were fighting, bleeding, and retreating from Ukraine’s Lyman. Appearing on Sunday Evening With Vladimir Solovyov , head of RT Margarita Simonyan was so furious about Russia’s latest defeat in Ukraine, she admitted not wanting to even come to the show. Her recipe for boosting the morale was simple: total disgrace and brutal … [Read more...] about Top Putin Crony Admits They Want ‘to Grieve and to Panic’ Over Ukraine
Mara Wiles has lately proven herself a vital addition to Denver’s comedy scene with her quick-witted routines, devastatingly funny asides and ability to get on all the best shows. Anyone who’s seen the Maryland native’s snappy sets will attest that she’s also got something most comedians take years to develop: a distinct, fully-formed voice. Her wry, conversational bits manage to be both self-deprecating and warm, poignant and silly, and her material is only getting better. In addition to her frequent stand-up sets around town and her improv work (at the Impulse Theater ), she also formed the LadyFace sketch comedy troupe over the summer. The group, which consists of Timmi Lasley, Chella Negro, Kristin Rand, Melanie Karnopp and Nicole Qualtieri, is presenting its “Greatest Story Ever Told…” show at South Broadway’s Spark Theater this weekend, mixing stand-up, sketch, live music, videos and special guest Jordon Doll. We caught up with Wiles via e-mail in advance of the … [Read more...] about Why So Serious, Mara Wiles?
