Three things we learned from Manchester City – Porto 1. Autopilot is still fine: Look, Man City in the Champions League is all about the knockout rounds and City is too good to worry about qualifying. Maybe clubs who play them twice a year will have answers, but Porto couldn’t keep the ball and needed a pretty bad error and delightful bit of technique to open the scoring. … [Read more...] about Manchester City puts it together late against Porto

Wallace: Really anything; a lot of time-lapse stuff. It’s always fun looking at the clouds and see what they’re doing because every three to four seconds it changes shapes. I haven’t picked up my camera in a while but I’m always looking at buying new equipment, and I don’t even use it. It’s weird and not smart decisions but it’s still fun to look at how to be better and how to take better pictures. We did a photo shoot recently for the Coca-Cola racing team, and people will think, ‘Oh, you just like to look at yourself’ and I’m like, no it’s really cool how you get these kind of shots. So I can sit there at a photo shoot and be there for hours trying to figure out what in the hell they are doing. I got to do stuff with NASCAR at the racetrack, like shoot the All-Star Race a couple of years ago. Shot the Xfinity race (at Charlotte) a few years ago as well. … [Read more...] about Xfinity Series Spotlight: Darrell Wallace Jr.
Shepherd: I should have won Daytona several times. I ran second down there twice in the (Daytona) 500 and once in the (July) 400. My most memorable race would be 1986 Atlanta Motor Speedway. At that time, I thought I was on my way out of racing, I was somewhere around 47 years old. Jack Beebe came to me, I didn’t have a ride, and he said, ‘Morgan, I’m not going to run all year, this is going to be my last year racing, but do you want to run with me?’ I said yeah. Suitcase Jake (Elder) was over there, everybody knows Suitcase Jake, and so we ran Daytona and then we went to Atlanta to test. We’re testing, and the car wasn’t turning right, and I told Jake, let’s put 75 pounds of weight behind the left-rear wheel. He goes, ‘I ain’t putting no 75 pounds of weight behind no left rear wheel.’ I said, ‘Well don’t you want to get the car turning better?’ He said ‘Yeah, but that ain’t gonna help it.’ … [Read more...] about Xfinity Series Spotlight: Morgan Shepherd
Given the strength of Australia's top order, India would need early wickets to make a match of it, and that's exactly what Praveen Kumar gave them. Swinging the ball masterfully, he sent back Gilchrist and Ponting in his first two overs, and when he bowled Clarke in his fifth over, Australia were 32 for 3. The game kept seesawing thereafter. Hayden and Symonds put on 89, then both fell in the space of three balls. Then Michael Hussey and James Hopes came together to add 76, before Sreesanth had the former caught behind. … [Read more...] about Lee vs Balaji, Dhoni vs McKay, and a World Cup humdinger
