  1. Men's Baseball WBSC Under 15 World Cup 2018

    we lost to them (9-5, after a mess of a game) at last year's european champs in the decisive match...we didn't even manage to make the top 4 in that tournament...

    some matches, to be precise (about 50% in the preliminary round)... all the inofs about the tournament can be found here: https://u15bwc.wbsc.org/ the most noticeable results so far are Japan's loss against Cuba and the USA loss to Chinese Taipei (with hosts Panama still unbeaten in group A)... to my taste, too many blowouts and too many teams that shouldn't be among the participants (RSA, AUS, CHN, GER)...
  6. Men's Ice Hockey NHL 2018 - 2019

    10 must-see games in 2018-19 Capitals raising Cup banner, two outdoor games, Global Series in Sweden, Finland among highlights Here's a look at 10 must-see games in 2018-19: Oct. 3: Boston Bruins at Washington Capitals Capitals home opener After winning the Stanley Cup for the first time in their 43-season history, Conn Smythe Trophy winner Alex Ovechkin, center Nicklas Backstrom, goaltender Braden Holtby and the rest of the Capitals will raise the Stanley Cup banner against the Bruins at Capital One Arena. Washington defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning and Vegas Golden Knights on their run to the title. It will also be the debut for a new Capitals coach after Barry Trotz resigned Monday. Oct. 4: Boston Bruins at Buffalo Sabres Possible Rasmus Dahlin NHL debut This likely will be the NHL debut for defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, projected to be the No. 1 pick by the Sabres, at KeyBank Center. Dahlin had 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 41 games with Frolunda of the Swedish Hockey League and was named best defenseman at the 2018 World Junior Championship, where he had six assists in seven games to help Sweden win a silver medal. He also played for Sweden at the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics and could be on Buffalo's top defense pair before long. Oct. 6: Edmonton Oilers vs. New Jersey Devils 2018 NHL Global Series, Gothenburg, Sweden The Oilers and Devils will open the NHL season at the Scandinavium in a matchup between Edmonton center Connor McDavid, who won the scoring title this season, and New Jersey forward Taylor Hall, who won the Hart Trophy. Devils forwards Marcus Johansson and Jesper Bratt and Oilers defenseman Adam Larssson each were born in Sweden, making the matchup extra special for them. It will be the seventh time and second straight season the NHL has played regular-season games in Europe. Oct. 10: Vegas Golden Knights at Washington Capitals Stanley Cup Final rematch The Capitals defeated the expansion Golden Knights in five games in the Stanley Cup Final, winning the final four games of the series after losing Game 1. Vegas will get its first shot at redemption less than a week into the season when they visit Washington at Capital One Arena. The teams meet for the second and final time of the regular season at T-Mobile Arena on Dec. 4. Oct. 11: Winnipeg Jets at Nashville Predators Western Conference Second Round rematch The Central Division rivals finished as the top two teams in the NHL during the regular season, with the Predators (117 points) winning the Presidents' Trophy and the Jets (114) right behind them. They had a second-round clash in the playoffs, alternating wins and losses in a seven-game series won by Winnipeg, when center Mark Scheifele set an NHL record with seven goals on the road. This will be Nashville's first chance to avenge that playoff loss, at Bridgestone Arena. Nov. 1-2: Florida Panthers vs. Winnipeg Jets 2018 NHL Global Series, Helsinki The Jets, who advanced to the Western Conference Final, and Panthers, who missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs by one point, will play in the NHL's second matchup in Europe next season, at Hartwall Arena. Center Aleksander Barkov, 22, who led the Panthers in scoring last season with 78 points (27 goals, 51 assists), and Winnipeg forward Patrik Laine, 20, who finished second in the NHL with 44 goals, each was born in Tampere, Finland, and will be looking to put on a show. Jan. 1, 2019: Boston Bruins at Chicago Blackhawks 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, Notre Dame Stadium The two Original Six teams will meet for the first time in an outdoor game. The Bruins are 1-1-0 in the Winter Classic, most recently losing against the Montreal Canadiens in 2016; the Blackhawks are 0-3-0 in the Winter Classic and 1-4-0 in outdoor games, including the Coors Light Stadium Series. It should be an electric atmosphere in South Bend, Indiana, in front of a crowd of around 80,000. Jan. 18, 2019: New York Islanders at Washington Capitals Trotz returns to Washington Trotz, who stepped down as coach of the Capitals on June 18 after leading them to the Stanley Cup and was hired by the Islanders three days later, will have a bit of a wait before returning to coach in Washington. The Metropolitan Division rivals play for the first time on Nov. 26 at Barclays Center, but not at Capital One Arena in Washington until the Islanders' 47th game of the season. Trotz likely will get a nice ovation after helping the Capitals to their first championship. Feb. 23, 2019: Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers Coors Light Stadium Series, Lincoln Financial Field The longtime division and intrastate rivals are no strangers to each other and will play for the second time in three seasons in a Stadium Series game. The Penguins defeated the Flyers 4-2 at Heinz Field, home of the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers, in 2017. This time, the Flyers will host the game at the home of the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Feb. 27, 2019: Edmonton Oilers at Toronto Maple Leafs Connor McDavid vs. Auston Matthews McDavid, the No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, and Matthews, a center and the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft, will go head to head for the first of two times next season. Matthews, the 2017 Calder Trophy winner as the NHL's top rookie, is 3-0-0 against the Oilers in his NHL career and has two goals and three points. McDavid, who won the Ted Lindsay Award as the most outstanding player as voted by the NHLPA on Wednesday, has eight points (four goals, four assists) in five NHL games against Toronto.

    Capitals to raise Stanley Cup banner on NBCSN's 'Wednesday Night Hockey' NBC Sports set to televise 109 games, most since acquiring NHL rights in 2005 The Washington Capitals will raise their Stanley Cup championship banner on the debut of "Wednesday Night Hockey" on NBCSN prior to their home opener against the Boston Bruins at Capital One Arena on Oct. 3 (7:30 p.m. ET). It will be the first game of a season-opening doubleheader on the network, with the Anaheim Ducks playing at the San Jose Sharks at 10:30 p.m. ET. "Wednesday Night Hockey" will have 17 doubleheaders and feature the network's most diverse schedule since it began televising NHL games prior to the 2005-06 season. "Wednesday Night Hockey" is part of NBC Sports' 109 televised games between NBC and NBCSN, the most since the network acquired NHL broadcast rights prior to the 2005-06 season. "With the impressive growth of fan interest in non-traditional NHL markets combined with the emergence of a number of rising stars, we felt the time was right to broaden our Wednesday night schedule and evolve the brand," said Sam Flood, executive producer and president of production for NBC Sports and NBCSN. "Fans will still see plenty of games between traditional powers, but our new approach to Wednesday nights, including a record number of doubleheaders, allows us to show more rising stars and more Western Conference and Canadian teams than ever before." Other "Wednesday Night Hockey" games include a 2018 Stanley Cup Final rematch between the Capitals and Vegas Golden Knights on Oct. 10; Auston Matthews, John Tavares and the Toronto Maple Leafs facing Patrik Laine and the Winnipeg Jets on Oct. 24; Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins playing Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Feb. 13; and a rematch of the 2018 Eastern Conference Final between the Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning on March 20. Other highlights of the NBCSN schedule will be the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic between the Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana, on Jan. 1, 2019, and the 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Feb. 23, 2019. NBC will televise 13 games, starting with the 2018 Discover Thanksgiving Showdown between the Flyers and New York Rangers at Wells Fargo Center on Nov. 23. The 2019 NHL All-Star Game, to be played at SAP Center in San Jose on Jan. 26, will be televised in prime time on NBC. It will be the first time the All-Star Game will be live on a broadcast network since 1997.

  9. Men's Ice Hockey NHL 2018 - 2019

    1 month (and 1 day) from today the pre-season of the 2018/2019 NHL is going to start... so, I guess it's time to open the new season's thread...
  10. European Championships 2018

    when I watch an episode of Criminal Minds (and last night I watched one of those) my sadistic side always comes out bad... and yeah, at the Olympics it's always a furious switching between different tv channels to find what I really want to watch in a specific moment...
  11. Women's Softball WBSC World Championship 2018

  12. European Championships 2018

    I hate this "American" approach to the sport so much... I'd really like to torture to death all those who show such a lack of love for the competition as it is, which to me is the pure essence of sport, the reason I like to watch so many different events, even if there isn't any national/nationalist interest...
  13. European Championships 2018

    Shooting will surely be part of it in 4 years time, if the Championships are hosted in Rome... and probably a few more disciplines (a couple of fighting sports between Judo, Wrestling or Taekwondo, too)...
  14. European Championships 2018

    in Italy they've been a huge success... our public TV broadcasted almost every event, with 2 tv channels covering many hours a day (and 6 streams on theur website covering evrything in full)... and also the tv ratings were getting better and better day by day, always keeping above the average numbers of the tv channel where they were broadcasted (and despite the time of competition was definitely not the best possible for the Italian tv viewers, with swimming finals in the afternoon -in the traditional hottest holiday week of the Summer- and athletics ending always too early -our primetime nowadays is from 21.15/21.30 to 23/23.30). of course the excellent results (except for athletics and gymnastics, even if the junior gymnasts dominated the field both among the girls and the boys, but of course those events were not shown on tv) did help a lot. and because of that, now it comes the worst part of it...it's strongly believed that Italy will host the next edition in 4 years time, thanks to a strong Rome bidding (by the time, the current disaster of a Mayor, Virginia Raggi, would be gone...so, non problem because of that)... a farce like the 2026 Winter Olympics bid wasn't enough...now we have to cope also with this one... God (or whoever has a chance to do it), please...save us!!!
  15. Swimming 2018 Discussion Thread

    Alessandro Miressi, just a few days after becoming European Champion over the men's 100m Freestyle, earlier today at the National Age Groups Championships improved his PB (48.00, swam in the European Final) and clocked the new Italian Record over the distance in 47.92... new National Record also for Ilaria Bianchi ("only" 4th in Glasgow earlier this week) over the women's 100m Fly with 57.22, which would have given her a medal if clocked in Scotland... as usual, many Italian swimmers improve their best times when it's too late and when it doesn't really count that much...

    aaargh!!! it looks that Nacra Medal Race is not gonna happen...wind is just not there... good for Italy, but it would be a real shame if we end the championships without the race that's expected to be the most spectacular of the entire tournament...
  24. Sailing ISAF World Championships 2018

    sure...that's why I really hope thay won't make it an Olympic event in 2024... if they get to have a decent starting field and more than only 3/4 competitive Nations at the top, OK... otherwise, they should work to develop the discipline in a global way and only after that they could ask to jump into the Olympic schedule...
  25. Athletics EAA European Championships 2018

    Italy Colonial Empire? c'mon, man! we only went to Ethiopia and Lybia and it was a poor joke...that idiot with a big fat stomach and no hair (and no brain, more than that) who used to lead our Nation in the first part of the previous Century din't even get that Lybia was rich of oil and natural gas (so, we did never benefit from the only thing that we coud have from those stupid "adventures")... and at that time we never tried to get people from those Countries to ours (slavery in Italy has been cancelled way before the modern era, even if now it's institutional...in the sense that normal working people earn a misery and have almost only constrictions and no rights, but that's just another story)... and nowadays we (as Italian people) can't do anything if many European Nations try to keep all those starving to death Africans coming to Europe within our territory... now we have more than 10% of our population that's not anymore "100% with pure Italian heritage"... what should we do? discriminate those kids who came here as little children (or even those who are born in our Nation) and avoid them to have access to our schools, sports structures and eventually to represent Italy? however, if Poland, Hungary and the other Visengrad Nations adopted a decent and really "European" policy about immigration, today they would also have a bunch of Africans getting them some medals in long distance Athletics races... because every European Nation (also yours) is way richer than those where those people are coming from and they would be a nicer place to live for them... maybe it's sad, maybe not...but that's the pure truth... p.s. the same criteria apply (at least in part) also to Central and North European Countries...but I don't want to make this thread a political one...so, let's stop this thing here, please...and just enjy the races for what they are aand for the show they put on offer...
