DeGrom Lifts Mets Past Nats, 7-2

first_imgWASHINGTON — New York Mets Manager Terry Collins said he rolled the dice July 21 against the Washington Nationals.Collins removed All-Star pitcher Jacob deGrom after six innings and sent up pinch-hitter Eric Campbell with two runners in scoring position.Campbell delivered, putting New York ahead with his two-run single in the seventh, and a stagnant Mets lineup finally came through with several clutch hits to back deGrom in a 7-2 win over the Nationals.“You’re behind by a run and you’ve got runners on second and third, and the pitcher’s up — you’ve got to pinch hit,” Collins said. “I know Jake had two more innings easily.”After going 4-for-72 with runners in scoring position over their previous nine games, the Mets were 5 for 15 this time.One of those hits was by Campbell, who knocked in Wilmer Flores and Kirk Nieuwenhuis to give New York a 3-2 lead.“We obviously need to score more runs and hit better with guys in scoring position, and we did that today,” Campbell said.Curtis Granderson, Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy added RBI singles in a four-run ninth following a costly throwing error by left fielder Matt den Dekker.Fresh off his dominant display in the All-Star Game a week ago, deGrom (10-6) allowed two runs and three hits in surpassing his win total from last season. The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year whiffed three American League batters on 10 pitches July 13 in Cincinnati.This time, deGrom struck out eight without a walk to beat the division-rival Nationals for the first time in four tries. He was pulled after only 82 pitches.“That’s not really my decision,” deGrom replied when asked if he said anything to Collins about being removed. “That’s their decision ultimately and it ended up working out for the best.”Wilson Ramos hit a two-run homer for Washington, which leads the NL East by two games over the Mets.Rookie starter Joe Ross (2-2) gave up three runs — two earned — and four hits in 6 1-3 innings.Flores singled to open the seventh. Nieuwenhuis followed with a bouncer up the first base line that deflected off Clint Robinson’s glove and into foul territory for an error, putting runners on second and third.After Kevin Plawecki popped out, Collins opted for Campbell, who entered the game hitting .174. He came through against reliever Aaron Barrett.“He’s had, in my opinion, the best at-bats in the last two or three games and so I just said, ‘I think he’s the guy to go up there,’” Collins said.The 22-year-old Ross was filling in for injured Stephen Strasburg and beginning his second stint with Washington.“He was in command the whole time he was out there,” Manager Matt Williams said. “Got up there in pitches, and had some trouble there in the last inning. But I thought he pitched great.”Ross retired his first nine batters before the Mets got to him in the fourth.Granderson led off with a single and stole second. He moved to third on a groundout and scored on a single by Flores, who had two RBIs.After deGrom faced the minimum through four, Yunel Escobar doubled to open the fifth. With two outs, Ramos drove a 1-0 fastball just over the wall in right for his ninth homer of the season.(HARVEY VALENTINE)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Government and UWI Discuss Further Training for Tourism Workers

first_imgThe Government is in discussion with the University of the West Indies (UWI) regarding potential training options that can be explored and initiated to further boost the competence of tourism workers.Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, who is leading the discussions on behalf of the Government, said it is anticipated that the outcome of the talks “will take us into another tier of that whole process of building professionalism within the sector, through the university”.The Minister was speaking at a ceremony to announce the 2018 Tourism Service Excellence Awards finalists, at the Spanish Court Hotel in New Kingston, on Tuesday (March 12).Mr. Bartlett, who indicated that the initiative will be further outlined during his 2019/20 Sectoral Debate presentation in Parliament, said the undertaking represents the start of labour transformation arrangements in the tourism sector.He noted that the existing scenario “sometimes makes it difficult for us to classify the workers”, in order to create the attendant remuneration.In this regard, the Minister said it is anticipated that with the proposed collaboration being pursued, beneficiaries will be recognised for their contributions and rewarded “appropriately”.Mr. Bartlett further indicated that for beneficiaries entering the world of work for the first time, “when you come in, you come in at a certain level with a salary arranged scale that is [recognised]… and then you are able to move up, based on qualification, competence and performance at every level”.The 2018 Tourism Service Excellence Awards ceremony is slated for Saturday, March 30 in Montego Bay.The event will recognise and honour individuals and organisations across the industry who have distinguished themselves through service excellence.last_img read more

Maj Shipyard will complete the construction of a bulk carrier for Canadian shipping company Algoma. On September 4, 2019, the duo signed a contract to restore the construction of the hull no. 733, the shipbuilder said in a stock exchange filing.The investment is valued at USD 36.6 million, local media cited Darko Horvat, Croatian economy minister, as saying.The ship in question is a self-unloading Handysize vessel which is reportedly already 80 percent complete.Back in October 2018, Algoma canceled the shipbuilding contract for the hull 733 at the shipyard, along with three other vessel contracts. The shipowner sent the cancellation notices due to “the yard’s failure to secure refinancing for the ships.”3.

Fort Erie police incident under investigation

In Fort Erie neighbours are still in shock after a dramatic scene at Douglas Memorial Hospital last night.A police officer shot a man at the Urgent Care Centre, after being called to the hospital for reports of a stabbing.At around 8 o’clock last night, Niagara Regional Police were called to the Douglas Memorial Urgent Care Centre after a 61 year-old man had been stabbed.According to the Special Investigations Unit, when officers arrived at the hospital they saw the 61 year-old man with knife wounds but were quickly approached by a 29 year-old man. There was some sort of interaction between police and the younger man before an officer shot him.The SIU has taken over the investigation, they step in when police are reportedly involved in a death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. The hospital was closed last night, but has since reopened.Those who live in homes right across from the hospital were startled to see the normally quiet facility, swarmed by police.“There was a lot of activity next door. At first we thought it was a big accident, then rumours started going.. you know, very scary”CHCH asked the SIU if the 2 victims were known to each other, if the 29 year-old man who was shot by police had a weapon, or if either of the victims were a patient or staff member at the hospital. The SIU says these questions are all part of the investigation, and wouldn’t comment.We also asked if the 29 year-old was the one who stabbed the 61 year-old they said that’s under investigation.Both victims were taken to a hospital in Buffalo. Both are in stable condition and are expected to survive.The SIU and representatives from the hospital did not want to comment on camera, but in a press release, Niagara Health says there are no safety risks at the hospital at this time. The SIU are asking anyone who may have video footage of the incident to upload it on their website. read more

Annan supports OAS call on Haitians to resolve political crisis

The Secretary-General has followed with “deep interest” the political situation in Haiti since the closure of the International Civilian Support Mission there, spokesman Manoel de Almeida a Silva told the press at UN Headquarters. “He was encouraged by the joint OAS – CARICOM mission to Haiti, which recently reported its findings to the 31st General Assembly of the OAS in San Jose, Costa Rica.”Mr. Annan notes that the OAS has adopted a resolution calling upon all Haitians to commit themselves to addressing the current crisis. That resolution was based on the report by the OAS-CARICOM mission, and in consideration of the recent initiatives by Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.”The Secretary-General fully supports this call and all other efforts by the Organization of American States and the Caribbean Community, which aim to strengthen democracy and respect for human rights in Haiti,” the spokesman said. read more

Eritreas restrictions on UN flights hamper peace operation senior envoy says

Speaking at a press briefing in Addis Ababa, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative, Legwaila Joseph Legwaila, said if Eritrea’s decision was not reversed, it would halve the usefulness of the UN mission (UNMEE) to the parties.He also warned that there would be more challenges of this type to the peace process as long as the current stalemate continues and called for decisive measures to achieve a breakthrough.Meanwhile, at a news conference in Asmara, UNMEE Force Commander Major-General Rajender Singh told the journalists that the decision had prompted peacekeepers to step up their foot patrols.He also said the ban seriously impaired the ability of blue helmets to monitor the Temporary Security Zone between Ethiopia and Eritrea, which fought a two-year border war that ended in 2000.The Force Commander added that the restrictions put peacekeepers at greater risk, especially those in remote areas who would not have access to flights in the event of a medical emergency requiring evacuation.Earlier this week, Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the UN Security Council both called on the Government of Eritrea to reverse its decision immediately.In New York today, Mr. Annan’s spokesman said the UN had been in contact with the Eritrean authorities, but had received no explanation for the restrictions. The UN hoped the matter would be resolved quickly, Stephane Dujarric said.Asked about UNMEE’s helicopter assets, he said the Mission maintains a fleet of eight – six MI-8s and two Bell – used for such activities as monitoring, delivering supplies and medical evacuation. UNMEE usually launched five or six reconnaissance flights out of a total of 20 flights daily. Three camps are dependent on UNMEE supply flights because they are remote, although they can be reached by road, according to the spokesman. read more

UN launches massive clothing distribution to Congolese refugees ahead of rainy season

“The distribution of the clothes is addressing one of the most pressing humanitarian needs of the internally displaced population,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) DRC representative Eusebe Hounsokou said today.The massive operation, assisted by a local non-governmental organization (NGO) called ADSSE, began last Saturday at the Gety camp, home to more than 46,000 internally displaced persons (IDP), and will move later this week to Kagaba camp, which houses almost 13,000, UNHCR said.Last week, the agency gave heads of households at the camps tokens entitling them to trousers, skirts, blouses, shirts and t-shirts, according to their needs.The majority of the IDPs in both camps arrived between June and July, fleeing from violent clashes between the army and rebel forces. Most left all their belongings behind and are in urgent need of clothing, footwear and soap, UNHCR said.The operation is the agency’s second such effort to help Congolese IDPs. In October, UNHCR provided over 6,300 IDPs in Katanga province with a return package that included kitchen sets, mosquito nets, blankets, plastic sheets, jerry cans and tools to construct basic shelter.The agency is also currently planning return and reintegration projects in the Ituri region that should allow one quarter of the Gety and Kagaba camp dwellers to travel home early next year.A key challenge UNHCR faces is extremely heavy seasonal rainfall, which has already caused massive mudslides in South Kivu province last week, halting the repatriation of thousands of returnees by boat from Tanzania, UNCHR said.Plans to restart ferry service across Lake Tanganyika today have been postponed after huge rocks, some the size of trucks, cascaded down the mountainside, blocking the main road between the port of Baraka, where refugees disembark, and Uvira, where a fleet of UNHCR vehicles used to transport the returnees remains stranded, the agency said.“We hope to start the repatriation movements again as soon as possible,” said UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis.She told reporters in Geneva today that UN agencies in the area, including UN peacekeepers, are hammering out a plan to clear roads.At the beginning of the year, clashes between army and rebel forces triggered the flight of an estimated 1.6 million IDPs, including 375,000 in the Ituri region. As calm slowly returns to the country, thousands have already begun to return to their homes, but 420,000 Congolese refugees still live in surrounding countries, including 130,000 in Tanzania.Meanwhile, the Security Council reiterated today in a formal statement its tribute to Congolese voters for showing their civic responsibility, and welcomed the support provided by the UN and other international partners for the holding of the elections.“The Security Council recalls that these elections are historic for the Democratic Republic of the Congo and looks forward to the installation of a democratically elected government,” said Security Council President for November Jorge Voto-Bernales, Ambassador of Peru, who welcomed the poll in comments to the press last week. read more

Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda now in custody of International Criminal Court

Mr. Ntaganda has been indicted by the Court on seven counts of war crimes and three counts of crimes against humanity allegedly committed in Ituri province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) between 2002 and 2003. He turned himself in to the United States Embassy in Rwanda on Monday.“This is a good day for victims in the DRC and for international justice,” ICC Prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said in a news release. “Today those who are alleged to have long suffered at the hands of Bosco Ntaganda can look forward to the future and the prospect of justice taking its course.” Also welcoming the transfer was Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who “strongly believes that it will advance the cause of peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo as well as the fight against impunity in the region,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson.In addition, the members of the Security Council issued a statement to the press, in which they viewed Mr. Ntaganda’s surrender “as a positive step for international criminal justice as well as toward the restoration of peace and security in eastern DRC.” Mr. Ntaganda’s initial appearance before the Court’s pre-trial chamber is set for 26 March. The Court noted that this is the first time that a suspect has surrendered voluntarily to its custody, and expressed its gratitude for the support and cooperation of the Dutch and US authorities, both in Rwanda and in the Netherlands. Ms. Bensouda also thanked all actors “who have been working for so long to make this day possible.” At the same time, she added that, “as we welcome progress in one case, others also subject to ICC warrants in the region remain at large.”She urged all States now to renew and refocus their efforts to secure the arrest of Sylvestre Mudacumura, the head of the Rwandan rebel group known as the FDLR, and all others subject to ICC warrants for alleged crimes committed in DRC who are still at large.The ICC is the first permanent international court set up to prosecute individuals for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and the crime of aggression. read more

High school students partner with Goodman to help Heartland Forest

A youthful perspective was just what Elisabeth Graham was looking for when she entered a lecture hall packed with high school students from the District School Board of Niagara (DSBN).Graham, Executive Director at Heartland Forest in Niagara Falls, was at Brock University Tuesday, Dec. 11 to judge the final four student teams as they presented their findings in a term-long marketing project aimed at bringing more people to the local nature centre.The exercise, which was facilitated by Brock’s Goodman School of Business, saw students from A.N. Myer Secondary School in Niagara Falls and Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School in St. Catharines deliver 15-minute presentations focused on various marketing opportunities available to Heartland.Heartland Forest Executive Director Elisabeth Graham with Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School student Gage Mitchener.While preparing for their final presentations in front of Graham and a panel of other judges, students from both high schools met with mentors from the Brock Marketing Association to plan their strategies.“We wanted to expose high school students to what it’s like to complete a university-level marketing exercise,” said David DiPietro, Co-ordinator, Experiential Education in Goodman.For 16-year-old Sir Winston Churchill student Gage Mitchener, the knowledge gained from the preparation sessions unearthed new strategies she hopes to use in post-secondary-level business studies in the next few years.“My presentation skills became more relaxed and I learned how to target my audience,” she said.Mitchener’s group, which also included Grade 11 students Austin Holtby, Griffen Mason and Ryan Daniel, focused their presentation on an improved social media presence for Heartland while also proposing additional initiatives, such as external community involvement opportunities and online merchandise sales.Graham said the new ideas offered by all four teams would be taken back to the organization to engage additional audiences.“Heartland is for all ages and all abilities, so certainly the high school age group has a very distinct voice,” she said. “They were full of unique ideas that we have not explored before and that is really inspiring.”When it came time to choose a winner, Graham and the other judges awarded first prize to Mitchener and her teammates.“It felt really good to win,” said Mitchener. “Seeing our work recognized outside of school and knowing that our marketing plan could be used in the real world was great.”DiPietro hopes partnerships like the one between DSBN and Goodman will continue to introduce students to the type of experiential opportunities available at Brock.“We try to implement experiential exercises in programs across the board,” he said. “Learning how to complete them effectively while still in high school can be extremely beneficial and better prepare students for their next steps.”For Graham, regular partnerships between Heartland Forest and Brock represent ongoing growth for the University and the nature centre.“Whether it’s with graduate programs, in Goodman or on this new project with high school students, there have been benefits from every single project we have worked on with Brock,” she said. “Our partnerships always further Heartland’s mission.” read more

Ghost in the Shell Arise announced by Production IG

first_imgEven if you don’t take a great interest in anime, chances are you’ve heard of the most popular titles such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Akira, and Ghost in the Shell. Evangelion is already in the middle of a re-release of sorts, albeit it in a new four-part re-edited movie form. Akira keeps popping up in the news due to the potential of a live action movie version. But Ghost in the Shell hasn’t been heard about much since 2005.Today, that changed as a new anime series has been announced entitled Ghost in the Shell: Arise. Very little is known about the project other than work began this year by acclaimed studio Production I.G. (Patlabor, Blood: The Last Vampire, the Kill Bill Vol. 1 animated sequence, and previous Ghost in the Shell releases).Full details of the new project are expected to be revealed on February 12 at a press conference in Japan that will be streamed worldwide using YouTube. We can expect clips from the anime to appear the night of the 12th as well, after an event being held at the TOHO Cinemas in Roppongi.Rest assured the global popularity of the Ghost in the Shell series will mean Arise sees a release in Western markets, we may just have to wait a while to get it.The image you see above that has been released for the announcement of Arise has inevitably thrown up a few questions about where the series will sit in the timeline. The female in the image is main character Motoko Kusanagi, but she looks a lot younger than how she was depicted in the movies and Stand Alone Complex series. Could Arise be set in an earlier timeframe?You’d think that was clear from the age of the girl, but Kusanagi is a cyborg and can change body. So there’s just as much chance this is a continuation of the timeline, but she’s moved to a younger shell.via Anime News Network and the official Ghost in the Shell: Arise websitelast_img read more

Geek 101 How to make a bow in Minecraft

first_imgMinecraft is a world in which you can almost do whatever you want. With an extensive modding scene, the ability to build structures by hand or through importing floor plans with third-party software, or creating machinery thanks to the various cogs and parts in the game. The game is so open and sometimes you need a little bit of help, say, when you are trying to make a bow.Minecraft is a truly open sandbox. However, if you’re playing on survival mode, you aren’t going to get very far unless you can defend yourself. Punching won’t do much, and a sword still requires you to be close to an enemy. So, you need a bow and some arrows to safely rain death upon your foes so you can get back to building that huge statue of your dog.MaterialsFirst off, you’ll need the proper materials. To make a bow, it requires three sticks and three strings. To craft sticks, you have to get wood from trees and craft it into wood planks by dumping it into the crafting table. Then, take two wood planks and arranged it in a vertical line in the crafting table. This will net you some sticks.In order to get string, you’ll have to go hunting for either spiders or cobwebs. Destroy either and there is a chance string will pop.RecipeIn Minecraft, the crafting patterns somewhat resemble the finished form, so in order to craft a bow, you essentially make a bow-shape.Bows have a durability ever since version 1.0.0, so they’ll eventually break. You’ll either need to make more, or repair them with the Anvil. If you’re feeling aggressive, you can also go seek out skeletons, which have a chance to drop a damaged bow on death.ArrowsIn order to stock your bow with ammo, you’ll need one feather, one flint, and one stick per four arrows. You can find feathers by either stalking (they’ll randomly drop) or killing chickens, and you can get flint from mining gravel.Place them in a vertical line starting with the feather at the bottom, stick in the middle, and flint on top.Image credit: dynamite2001last_img read more

Le climat à découvert un livre pour les climatosceptiques

first_imgLe climat à découvert : un livre pour les climato-sceptiquesLes climatologues français ont rédigé un ouvrage collectif visant à répondre à la vague climato-sceptique qui a accompagné et suivi le sommet de Copenhague, à la fin de l’année 2009. Dans un souci de transparence, ils présentent un ouvrage baptisé Le climat à découvert, dans lequel ils dévoilent les coulisses de leurs recherches.Les climatologues tentent de répondre à toutes les questions que l’on peut se poser sur leurs recherches, dans un ouvrage collectif baptisé Le climat à découvert. Dans ce livre ils entendent faire taire les critiques émanant des climato-sceptiques, ceux qui à l’instar de Claude Allègre, remettent en question le lien scientifiquement admis entre le réchauffement de la planète et les émissions de gaz à effet de serre (GES). “Au moment du sommet de Copenhague, et dans les mois qui ont suivi, on a subi une attaque frontale climato-sceptique assez violente. L’ensemble de la communauté a été atteinte dans sa chair”, rappelleCatherine Jeandel, directrice de recherche au CNRS ayant co-dirigé avec Rémy Mosseri l’ouvrage collectif, et dont les propos sont rapportés par 20 minutes. “On n’est pas dans la polémique, on a travaillé avec les auteurs pour qu’ils décrivent les choses le plus factuellement possible, de façon la plus transparente possible”, explique-t-elle.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?Dans Le climat à découvert, géologues, atmosphériciens, océanographes, géographes, palynologues, glaciologues et géologues expliquent le fonctionnement du climat et détaillent la façon dont ils mènent leurs recherches, les outils qu’ils utilisent pour évaluer et prédire les changements climatiques. Tous “s’accordent sur le fait qu’une augmentation du CO2 dans l’atmosphère induit un réchauffement global du climat”, soulignela physicienne Sandrine Bony en évoquant les simulations réalisées au moyen de modèles informatiques. Toutefois, certaines données varient selon ces modèles, comme “l’amplitude du réchauffement global, la réponse des nuages, la position précise des changements régionaux de précipitation et la réponse des moussons, la modification du nombre et de l’intensité des tempêtes”, souligne-t-elle.Les chercheurs admettent les nombreuses incertitudes qui planent sur leurs recherches, et assurent qu’elles sont les moteurs qui les poussent à sans cesse améliorer leurs méthodes.

September 11, 2016 at 12:58 am Cameron Huff I don’t know where any of this has to do with me being a Cena fan. I didn’t even say I was one. I’m a pro wrestling fan. What you’re doing is trying to find a reason to continue this conversation. Like I said, I laugh cause I want to. Sure, Punk can kick my ass because I don’t train in MMA as a full-time job. But I can laugh when I want to. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one laughing. Again, I laugh because of the way he came across and thought he was so special. People forget that Vince allowed him to be the longest reigning WWE champ in a long time. Just being able to do that is a big deal, so just because he didn’t get to main event WrestleMania, he whined about it and left. He might say he left cause he was tired and on the road all the time, but if Vince told him he was main eventing Mania he would have stayed. He’s a hypocrite in my opinion. Again, if you love him, good for you. I’m done with this conversation. what’s so funny? Are you a MMA fighter? I bet he could kick your ass glad i didnt spend money to see that fight. he just ran right at him and got taken to the ground right after the fight started. i mean it just showed you how liitle trainning punk has when you just run at a pro mma fighter and show no regard to his takedown ability. that and the lack of punk studying gall . gall submitted two other guy prior to punk in the 1st round via rear naked choke, so what does punk do? run straight at him, gets taken to the ground and gets choked out, which is the complete opposite of what he should have done. punk didnt deserve to be in the ufc and tonight just proved that. If I’d been in Gall’s camp, I’d have had him step into the cage, kneel down, check his watch, and shout “It’s clobberin’ tiiiiiiiiiiime!” Just to stab a bit, and to take away any impact or pop if Punk himself did it. September 10, 2016 at 11:00 pm HAHAHAHAHA MY WORD IS TRUE …… CM PUNK LOST ………. I BET MY MONEY ON PUNK LOST AND I WON ….. THANK YOU PUNK FOR YOUR LOST Pinterest Steven Herrera WhatsApp WWE Smackdown Results – 9/10/19 (The Undertaker returns, Clash of Champions build) Videos Articles Johnm Joe Rogan Says Floyd Mayweather Should Fight CM Punk in MMA Debut Levon Hughey Now Playing Up Next September 11, 2016 at 1:14 am September 10, 2016 at 11:07 pm September 11, 2016 at 10:55 am TheCyberZon It’s the only wrestling related thing from the show, lol. I could be mistaken, but I think they’ve done this with Lesnar’s fights (and maybe even Lashley’s) September 11, 2016 at 2:26 am September 10, 2016 at 11:23 pm Gerald Bocook diff is lesnar made it a fight his first fight, punk just made himself look like he didn’t belong there. Twitter you didn’t miss anything lol. thats because punk didn’t actually do anything all he did was lay on the mat curled up against the cage for most of the fight. at least lesnar went out and fought those 1:30 against mir a mma vet none the less in his first ufc fight. punk didn’t. gall is fairly new to the pro mma circuit. if that was mir taken on punk instead mir would ended that fight in 30 seconds. so there is a big diff between a guy like mir and a guy like gall. diff is lesnar was a supeior amature wrestler 2 time nnca champ he didnt need much to correct his mistakes he made against mir the first fight and it showed when he dominated mir the second fight. punk on the other hand has no legit fighting or grappling background and it showed tonight. he went up against a brown belt and got destroyed. i’m sorry but you can’t expect to fight in the ufc with no legit fighting or grappling background and expect to become anything near their level anytime soon it takes many years of trainning to fight at that level which punk will never have because by the time he gets to that level he will be too old to fight in the ufc.

NupeNDallas In his defense, he was the longest-reigning WWE Champion of the modern era, but the only time he was in the main event was when he was wrestling John Cena. To have your boss tell you you’re the top guy in the company but show the world that he thinks someone else is at every opportunity, would get under anyone’s skin. As the old adage goes, “The first time for everything is shit.” Punk will bounce back from this. September 11, 2016 at 2:08 pm I don’t understand why you are making this personal. Have you read the other comments on here? Why are you isolating my comment? All I wrote is “He just tapped out. Ha ha.” I have seen other comments on here that have gone way more in depth or some that just are laughing in general.Let me tell you something about myself before you decide to make a comment or make assumptions about me. I .ing played collegiate football and I still .ing train everyday. So no I don’t just sit on my ass all day as you may think. .ing prick. Jeffery Adam Phillips Damn it!! Well, Lesnar lost his 1st UFC fight too. Hopefully he’ll fare better next time. Now Playing Up Next Damn. That was way faster that I was hoping for. The Evolution of CM Punk videos did a really good job of making me think that Punk stood a chance. I would’ve liked to have seen this go at least to the second round.But, GG. Punk did it. He stepped into the Octagon. His career starts tonight, and since he lost, he really has nowhere to go but up! Did CM Punk Make A Secret Return To Wrestling?center_img The King of Kings SteelCity1981 September 11, 2016 at 1:40 am Makes perfect sense to me. lol NupeNDallas Another Top UFC fighter Is Calling Conor McGregor ‘Irrelevant’ Gerald Bocook Cm Punk SteelCity1981 Now Playing Up Next I’d root for any other pro wrestler that would step in the octagon and fight. Even Lesnar. But Punk comes across as a dick, he always has. He complained he wasn’t main eventing WrestleMania and so he left. So yes, I will laugh if I want. You apparently love him so that’s good for you. September 11, 2016 at 5:12 am September 11, 2016 at 2:20 am September 11, 2016 at 2:31 am Gerald Bocook September 11, 2016 at 12:34 am Absolutely. For less than two years of real training, and being so much older than his opponent, Punk did well. Hell, he did better than I could imagine doing. Props to Punk– sorry– Props to Phil Brooks, and hopefully the next time he steps into the Octagon he’ll have a vastly improved showing.

Jeffery Adam Phillips Now Playing Up Next September 11, 2016 at 12:41 am I didn’t see Punk’s UFC debut tonight so I can’t say whether or not he fought well but he did last to 2:14 of the 1st round before submitting while Lesnar only lasted to 1:30. Lesnar does have the superior MMA background as did his opponent Frank Mir compared to Mickey Gall but my point is Lesnar got better the more experience he got and Punk will/might as well. Welp,welcome to the big leagues kid. The King of Kings He just tapped out in the first round! Ha ha! Dana White Google+ Jeremy King September 11, 2016 at 12:25 am I totally expected him to do his WWE entrance when Cult of Personality hit, just to give that extra FU. lol let me guess you area Cena fan? Punk should have main vented at wM- he was the biggest draw at the time and he was one of the few wrestlers that didn’t have his nose up Vince or Triple H’s ass. September 11, 2016 at 5:14 pm Now Playing Up Next Brandon J Eh. Brock Lesnar lost his first fight. Hahahahahhhhahahhahahahahahahahahhaahhhahahhahhahahhaha TheCyberZon Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Steven Herrera Alexander Kahrs look Brandon you are really being an idiot. You don’t train mMA so you have no room to laugh at anyone. I have all the respect for CM because he pursued his dreams and got in the cage, but idiots like you who sit on their ass and never trained MMA and don’t have the heart to get in cage wants to throw shade at Punk. When you train MMA get your ass into a real fight than you can talk crap. Until then just shut your mouth and comtinue to kiss Cena’s ass.
