    President Donald Trump recently announced that he was invited to toss out the first pitch at the Yankees game on August 15, but the big event is now off. The reason? Trump revealed that he is so focused on the “China Virus” that he doesn’t have time to head to New York. “Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the @Yankees on August 15th. We will make it later in the season!” he wrote. He didn’t say whether these meetings were slated to happen before, during, or after the pitch. Critics were quick to point out that the president wasn’t too busy over the weekend to go golfing and questioned whether he was making an excuse to back out of the big event. Mia Farrow weighed in on the matter, suggesting that Trump was worried people would kneel during the national anthem, something that he has been fiercely critical of. “Tweets the...
    Mark Wilson/Getty Images President Donald Trump recently said he was invited to throw out the first pitch at Yankee Stadium on August 15th. Now it appears he’s not doing it after all. The president announced on Twitter Sunday he “won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch” on the 15th “because of my strong focus on the China Virus.” Because of my strong focus on the China Virus, including scheduled meetings on Vaccines, our economy and much else, I won’t be able to be in New York to throw out the opening pitch for the @Yankees on August 15th. We will make it later in the season! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2020 Last week the president said the RNC convention planned for Florida has been cancelled — after moving it there in the first place from its original venue in North Carolina.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Baseball is back in Chicago, but it is of course much different in 2020. Usually the lots outside Guaranteed Rate Field would be filling up with tailgaters a couple hours before a game, but for the opener of the shortened 2020 season, there won’t be any tailgating, because fans aren’t allowed in the stadium for now. The only fans inside the ballpark will be more than 1,500 cardboard cutouts as part of the team’s FANtastic Faces promotion, which raised more than $55,000 for White Sox Charities. They are not doing the cutouts at Wrigley Field, but there will be plenty of other changes around the Friendly Confines, including extended dugouts and ads covering the bleachers instead of the Cubs faithful. At all Major League Baseball stadiums this season, crowd noise will be pumped in, and there will be music and player intros, but that clearly won’t be a sufficient substitute for actual fans in the stands. “You miss those interactions with kids, and throwing a baseball in the stands,” Cubs manager David Ross said. “Jason Heyward threw...
    Donald Trump revealed Thursday he will be throwing the first pitch at Yankee Stadium at a game in mid August as Major League Baseball finally resumed after months of delay – but will be played in empty stadiums. Dr. Anthony Fauci, however, upstaged the president by throwing out the Opening Day pitch at the Yankees v. Nationals game in Washington D.C. Thursday evening. And in a further blow to Trump, every player kneeled for the national anthem - something he had said would mean 'game is over for me!' When Trump was asked if the country is moving too fast toward reopening, especially in regards to sports returning, the president rebutted that precautions are being taken to make it safer. 'Well baseball, as an example, we were discussing it a little while ago. You're going to be at an empty stadium,' he assured from the White House briefing room podium, claiming the league is 'setting an example.' While Trump spoke with the press, Fauci, who has not been invited back to participate in the Coronavirus Task Force briefings, was preparing...

    LEROY Cudjoe is ready for a new era – one in which he does not experience racism, either on or off a rugby league pitch. The former England centre admits he is still fighting the problems that saw him experience people being judged for the colour of their skin. 4 Leroy Cudjoe admits he has experienced racism on and off the rugby field - and it has to stopCredit: SWPIX.COM He himself has been called names – he would rather not say but concedes, ‘I’m sure people can work it out for themselves.’ Now as the Black Lives Matter movement raises issues surrounding racism – including things like the ‘White Lives Matter’ banner flown over a Burnley football match – Cudjoe hopes highlighting them may finally end the stigma. The Huddersfield star said: “It’s gone on for years, people are fed up and want to fight for equality. “To be given the same opportunities in life to be successful without having to deal with systemic racism. “Racism goes past name calling and effects black people in their daily lives in...
    WHEN you come back from a protracted break that Mikel Arteta seemingly finally found a winning formula before it, you can forgive Arsenal supporters' confidence for the restart of the Premier League. Four short days later, after two humbling defeats and worrying performances, the mood is altogether different in the Gooner community. 3 Edu and Arsenal's other top chiefs must support Mikel ArtetaCredit: Reuters So much so that when asked by your editor to write a piece in around 400 words, on what has gone wrong and what sort of overhaul is needed, your initial reaction is that it is not possible in so few words! Nevertheless, from my Arsenal gut here are some initial thoughts: HELP FROM ABOVE I still believe Arteta is the right man for the job, but he needs a more consistent agreed approach from those above him. Short-termism seems to reign, and deals are being done, on the hoof, with no apparent planning. The Club need to decide who oversees working with the coach on what is needed, Raul or Edu and a clear vision...
