Newark -- While most of the free world is now aware of the Jones-Sonnen fight there are 10 other contests on this same card.
Chael Sonnen, was talking about PPV buys yesterday, ass whooping, and government rederick to deflect what his real training methods are and how he intends to beat the lightweight champion, Jon “Bones” Jones. I don’t think moving up or down in weight class is a big deal in this sport so I won’t make too much out of it. I think the important issue is guts, determination, the ability to handle pain and technique.
He made some great statements here:
Olympian snowboarder Chris Klug is the first-ever organ transplant recipient to earn a bronze medal. His story is very similar to a lot of people who are in desperate need of an organ transplant. His story is about success but it didn’t start out that way.
“I was in the doctor’s office in the early 90’s. It was a routine physical and they found that I had PSC (http://www.liverfoundation.org/abouttheliver/info/psc/). I was in my 20’s. It was pretty shocking news for sure,” Klug remembered.
Philadelphia -- The Philadelphia Flyers players wore patches and the “Boston Strong” on the helmets on a night that was about playing a hockey game but also remembering that we’’re all citizens of the United States and Boston’s residents are our brothers and sisters at the end of the day and this game exemplified that with a beautiful video tribute and God Bless American rendition with Lauren Hart and Kate Smith.
This is the fourth update and there will be one or two more before the actual draft this June. This is my personal list and not a mock draft. I will update this again after the U-18’s.
1) Nathan MacKinnon 5-11, 180 - C - He’s a first-line center and he’s draft eligible in 2013. I think he has top-five ability. He has great vision and he’s an above-average passer. He also can speed through the neutral zone like few can. Great hands. He is focused. Getting more feisty in offensive zone. Showing more toughness.
