Next week, iFollo.com will be your source regarding the top spring training hotspots in both Arizona and Florida.
Check out the best places to encounter the myriad of ballplayers getting ready for the 2010 season. IFollo.com will also provide information describing the scene in and around the stadiums of the Cactus and Grapefruit Leagues.
One of the best players based in Arizona’s Cactus League is San Francisco Giants’ pitcher Tim Lincecum. The 25-year old, two-time Cy Young Award winner (2008, 2009) has grown into one of the top young stars in baseball.
Lincecum’s combination of power pitching and incredible stuff is quite remarkable considering his 5'11", 172 lbs body.
Wednesday night, future Hall of Fame running back LaDainian Tomlinson arrived in Minneapolis to meet with Minnesota Vikings officials. After spending his first nine seasons with the San Diego Chargers, the free agent has hit the open market for the first time in his career.
LT was released in February following the least productive season of his career. The NFL’s eighth all-time leading rusher has certainly lost a step, but that does not mean that other teams are not interested in Tomlinson as a backup.
Last weekend, Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was accused of sexual assault by a 20-year old college student in Milledgeville, Georgia. Roethlisberger owns a home in the Reynolds Plantation community, located on Lake Oconee in nearby Greensboro, Georgia.
Friday night, Roethlisberger was partying with friends at the Capital City Club in Downtown Milledgeville, when the alleged crime took place. The club is located near the campus of Georgia College & State University, where the accuser attends school.
Through statements issued by both his agent and lawyer, Roethlisberger denies any wrong doing in the case.
Last week, iFollo.com chronicled the efforts made by Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby, in trying to accommodate his legions of hometown fans in the Steel City.
In the very same posting, iFollo.com displayed recent video showing Washington Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin going the opposite direction, when he chose to break the camera of a fan at the Vancouver Olympics.
The two best players in hockey conduct their business, both on and off the ice, in completely different manners. Crosby exemplifies refinement, while Ovechkin reeks of physicality. It is truly a contest pitting grace vs. gruff.
The entertainment industry's and the city of Los Angeles’s biggest night of the year has arrived. It is Oscar Night!
While the award show is clearly the main event of the evening, the many parties offer the greatest opportunity to encounter a Hollywood celeb. The galas maybe exclusive, but fans can still find their way close to the action.
Below is a look at some of the highest profile events of the evening. The show will conclude at around 8:30 pm/PT, with the height of the parties set to begin shortly after the award for “Best Picture” is handed out, unless noted.
Be advised that many celebs will make their way between multiple parties throughout the evening.
The main event of Thursday’s late night calendar involves the appearance of Brett Favre on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Favre will be making his first public comments since the Minnesota Vikings’ overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game.
While Favre spends very little time in an interview setting, Basketball Hall of Famer Charles Barkley is perfectly comfortable sitting in front of that bright red light.
Monday, Peter King of SI.com wrote a fantastic tidbit regarding a battle between New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Remarkably, this contest took place over a bottle of fine wine, not a crucial fourth down play or a trip to the Super Bowl.
The setting was the world famous St. Elmo Steak House in Downtown Indianapolis. Both men were in town for the NFL’s annual pre-draft scouting combine.
