3 I’M PAXTON BOYD FROM E-S-P-N 1-0-6-3.WE’VE GOT A BUSY SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT.AN ICONIC CARTOON CHARACTER GETS INDUCTED INTO THE MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME — N-F-L CELEBRATIONS ARE BACK — AND BOCA RATON RESIDENT BERHARD LANGER ENTERED THE DAY JUST ONE SHOT OFF THE LEAD LOOKING FOR HIS áNINTHá SENIOR MAJOR TITLE. 3 BUT LET’S BEGIN ON THE TENNIS COURT — IT’S THE OPENING ROUNDS OF THE FRENCH OPEN. ONE NAME WE KNOW WHO’S NOT THERE, PALM BEACH GARDENS RESIDENT SERENA WILLIAMS, WHO OF COURSE IS IN THE PROCESS OF BECOMING A NEW MOM. THAT COULD OPEN UP A CHANCE FOR SISTER VENUS TO MAKE IT TO HER FIRST FRENCH OPEN FINAL IN áFIFTEENá YEARS. VENUS TAKING ON CHANG WANG IN HER 20TH FRENCH OPEN.FIRST SET — WILLIAMS DOWN FOUR GAMES TO THREE — WANG HITS THE RETURN WIDE. WE ARE TIED UP AT FOUR GAMES A PIECE.VENUS NOW UP FIVE GAMES TO FOUR — SHE COMES CHARGING — HITS THE SOFT SHOT OVER THE NET FOR THE POINT. SHE WOULD TAKE THE FIRST SET SIX-FOUR.SECOND SET, VENUS LOOKING TO TAKE A SIX GAMES TO FIVE LEAD — HITS THE BACKHAND WINNER AND JUST NICKS THE END LINE FOR THE POINT — WANG CAN’T BELIEVE IT! WILLIAMS GOES UP SIX-FIVE. VENUS WOULD END UP WINNING SEVEN-SIX AND ADVANCES TO THE NEXT ROUND OF THE FRENCH OPEN. 3 FROM CLAY COURTS TO THE CLAY DIAMOND, ST. LUCIE TAKING ON CLEARWATER. TOP OF THE SIXTH, NO RUNS SCORED — CLEARWATER ON THE ATTACK. ZACH COPPOLA WOULD COME IN TO SCORE FROM THIRD OFF OF THE PASSED BALL. THE THRESHERS TAKE A 1-0 LEAD. LET’S MOVE AHEAD TO THE BOTTOM OF THE EIGHTH INNING — METS STILL DOWN ONE-NOTHING — DAN RIZZIE UP TO BAT — HE CONNECTS AND SENDS ONE TO LEFT FIELD — HE’S THINKING TWO — BUT STAYS AT FIRST FOR THE SINGLE. BUT THE METS CAN’T TAKE ADVANTAGE WITH A RUNNER ON — JEFF SINGER GETS VINNY SIENNA SWINGING TO END THE INNING. SAINT LUCIE STILL TRAILS ONE-NOTHING.THEN BOTTOM OF THE NINTH FOR THE METS, LAST CHANCE TO MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN AND SINGER STRIKES OUT JHOAN URENA TO END THE GAME. THE METS WOULD FALL 1-0. 3 MEMBERS OF THE 19-92 SPRINGFIELD NUCLEAR PLANT SOFTBALL TEAM NOW IN THE BASEBALL HALL OF FAME INCLUDE KEN GRIFFEY JUNIOR — WADE BOGGS — OZZIE SMITH AND — WAIT FOR IT — HOMER JAY SIMPSON.THAT’S RIGHT! HOMER SIMPSON — THE CARTOON CHARACTER — BEAT OUT ROGER CLEMENS — DARRYL STRAWBERRY AND DON MATTINGLY TO BE INDUCTED IN COOPERSTOWN. THE INDUCTION HELPING CELEBRATE THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE SIMPSONS EPISODE “HOMER AT THE BAT” — WHICH AIRED IN 19-92 AND FEATURE SEVERAL OTHER HALL OF FAMERS.EVEN OZZIE SMITH AND WADE BOGGS WERE ON HAND ON THIS WEEKEND TO HELP áINDUCTá HOMER.MAYBE SIMPSON’S BIGGEST CONTRIBUTION TO THE GAME — HOMER SAVED THE SPRINGFIELD ISOTOPES — THEIR MINOR LEAGUE TEAM — FROM MOVING TO ALBUQUERQUE.SO WHAT DOES THIS GENERATION OF PLAYERS THINK ABOUT SIMPSON GETTING IN THE HALL? WELL WE DECIDED TO FIND OUT. 3 “Well deserved the guys a grinder it’s been a long time coming a lot of years on television and he just gets it done. He goes out there makes people laugh everyday, so hats off to Homer Simpson.” 3 THE BACKFIELDS AT ROGER DEAN STADIUM PLAYING HOST TO THE UNDER ARMOUR MEMORIAL DAY CLASSIC.FORTY TEAMS COMPETING TO TAKE HOME FIRST PLACE BUT ALSO LOOKING TO IMPRESS SCOUTS AND RECEIVE AN INVITATION TO THE UNDER AMOUR áNATIONALá SHOWCASE.A COOL NEW FEATURE IS THE EASTON HITTING SIMULATOR. THE SYSTEM IS SET UP WHERE SCOUTS CAN SEE HOW FAR AND HARD PLAYERS HIT THE BALL. THE PROGRAM USES THE EXACT SPECIFICATIONS OF MAJOR LEAGUE STADIUMS — LIKE MARLINS PARK — SO KIDS CAN SEE IF THEY HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO GO YARD IN A MAJOR LEAGUE BALL PARK. 3 3 IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD, WE’RE 3 ABOUT TO ENTER — OR, PERHAPS — áRE-ENTERá AN ERA IN WHICH THE N-F-L STOPS TAKING ITSELF SO SERIOUSLY.AN ERA WHERE ROGER GOODELL ISN’T áCOMPLETELYá CONSUMED BY PUNISHING PLAYERS.AN ERA THAT WILL ONCE AGAIN ALLOW ITS PLAYERS TO CELEBRATE ON THE FIELD. WHERE THE LEAGUE FINALLY LOOSENS ITS BELT — PUTS ITS FEET UP ON THE COUCH – – AND CHILLS THE HECK OUT. THAT’S RIGHT — THE “NO FUN LEAGUE” IS FUN AGAIN. CELEBRATIONS ARE BACK! AT LEAST, FOR THE MOST PART. THERE’S STILL NO TWERKING, NO GIRATING — SORRY ANTONIO BROWN — BUT HEY, IT’S A START, AND YOU KNOW WHAT? IT’S ABOUT TIME.COMMISSIONER GOODELL IS DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO DEMORALIZE THESE PLAYERS AND SQUEEZE EVERY DIME OUT OF THEM. FOUR PRESEASON GAMES AREN’T FUN. THIRTY-FIVE TO NOTHING BLOWOUTS ON THURSDAY NIGHTS AREN’T FUN. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS??? BARRELLING OVER A 250-POUND LINEBACKER AND POUNDING YOUR CHEST.LINING UP WITH YOUR TEAMMATES IN THE ENDZONE TO TAKE AN IMAGINARY PHOTO. PROPOSING TO A CHEERLEADER.I MEAN COME ON, YOU JUST SCORED A TOUCHDOWN IN THE áNATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUEá AGAINST THE POINT-ZERO-ONE PERCENT — YOU MAY NEVER DO IT AGAIN!LET ‘EM GO CRAZY. LET ‘EM GO NUTS. AND IF YOU WANNA HAND THE BALL OFF TO THE OFFICIAL AND ACT LIKE YOU’VE BEEN THERE BEFORE, THEN THAT’S FINE TOO.BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT — THESE ARE THE GUYS WHO ENTERTAIN US — “ENTERTAIN” BEING THE OPERATIVE WORD — FOR HOURS UPON HOURS EVERY SUNDAY IN THE FALL AND THEY’RE THE ONES WHO RISK INJURY — OR WORSE — TO DO IT.AT LEAST GIVE áTHEMá THE FREEDOM TO MAKE THAT DECISION. 3
