Former NFL football star Stephen Neal addresses Bulldogs

+

The Calexico Bulldogs hosted former NFL guard, two-time NCAA National Champion, and world champion in freestyle wrestling, Stephen Neal as a guest speaker. Neal shared his experiences competing at California State University Bakersfield as well as the importance being a multi-sport athlete played in his football career. Neal discussed the new opportunities and advantages that arise from trying new sports, and emphasized the vital role that "attitude, effort, and preparation" play in achieving success. "I hope the students understand that you can accomplish anything," said Neal. "Having them find some skills outside of their main sport, and become a better, total athlete, would be a win." Neal is one of the few players who did not play college football before entering the NFL.

Game Thread #130: Milwaukee Brewers (69-60) vs Arizona Diamondbacks (61-68)

+

Today is the first day of September, and the Brewers sit six games out of first place in the NL Central and 2.5 games out of the final wild card spot (technically 3.5 games because the San Diego Padres hold the head-to-head tiebreaker). The Brewers have been here before under Craig Counsell and produced some big Septembers to surge into a playoff spot. Along with Counsell’s tendency to make full use of expanded 40-man rosters in past seasons, the late success in some seasons has led many to affectionately refer to the regular season’s final month as "Craigtember." Another Craigtember is necessary for the Brewers to play meaningful October baseball, and they have an opportunity to make it happen with a break in the schedule. They kick off the month with a four-game series against the Diamondbacks on the road.

+

Albert Pujols is clearly excited to be back with St. Louis Cardinals

+

The Albert Pujols signing was made by the St. Louis Cardinals for a multitude of reasons. First, it was to add his bat to the lineup, specifically against left-handed pitchers, a role he thrived in with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Second, it was to reunite him with Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright which, by all accounts, will be their Last Dance. It’s good for the three career-long friends. It’s good PR by the Cardinals. The move, which was low-cost, came at virtually no risk to the team. It was a move that they should have made and ultimately ended up doing after initially calling it highly unlikely.
