Vingle Sports News and Analysis: 11 February 2016

What's up fellow sports vinglers, it's your commentator @KyleBerke aka K-Boss here! Starting today I will be coming out with daily cards for my new Vingle Sports News and Analysis (VSNA for short) series. I'll be discussing the sports results of the day for American football, hockey, basketball, baseball, football, and tennis along with their impact on playoff and draft position. Without further ado, here is the first of many daily VSNA cards!
There were only two games in the NBA today as we finally enter the all star break. The under card saw the Milwaukee Bucks handle the Washington Wizards at home 99-92. Milwaukee is currently at the bottom of a scrum of eastern conference teams trying to crack the playoffs and has back to back wins after dropping five straight Ls. Washington is still 2.5 games ahead of Milwaukee but they've struggled to find any consistency lately. They remain in tenth place in the eastern conference. Meanwhile, the Thunder blew out the Pelicans to become the third team this year to reach 40 wins before the all star break. It was an emotionally charged win for the Thunder, after assistant coach Monty Williams wife Ingrid passed away in a car accident on Wednesday. Players and staff around the league have offered support and condolences to Williams and his family. The well-liked assistant coach has five kids, so send thoughts and prayers for him and his family in this tough time.
It was a big night in hockey. The Dallas Stars exacted revenge on the Chicago Blackhawks, beating them 4-2. Patrick Eaves had a hat trick and Kari Lehtonen had 44 saves in the road win, while Duncan Keith and Patrick Kane scored for the Blackhawks in the loss. Kane now has 33 goals on the season, but was overtaken by Alexander Ovechkin in the season goal column. Ovechkin had a hat trick to push his total to 34 on the season as the Capitals beat the Wild 4-3. Washington has a big lead in the race for the President's Trophy, with 84 points. Chicago and Dallas lead the west with 75 and 74 points respectively. For the rest of the scores: the Islanders dismantled the LA Kings 5-2, the Flyers blew out the Sabres 5-1, Columbus beat Anaheim in a shootout 4-3, Colorado topped the Ottawa Senators 4-3, Boston cruised past Winnipeg 6-2, and the Oilers bested the Leafs 5-2. The Islanders are currently in third place I in the Metropolitan division, and are trying to put distance between them and the Penguins. LA still has a seven point lead over San Jose for control of the Pacific division. Boston is now tied with Detroit for second in the Atlantic, and bounces back from their crushing 9-2 loss at home to the Kings.
In tennis, 1st and 2nd seeds Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer both cruised into the Argentina Open quarterfinals with straight set victories. Nadal is looking to erase his recent struggles and the frustration of his first round exit at the Aussie Open by successfully defending his title in Buenos Aires. Nadal hasn't won a title since August of last year and only won 3 in all of 2015, including the Argentina Open.
That's all for today, folks! Let me know in the comments if you want to be tagged in future VSNA cards. Also let me know if you'd like me to include college sports in future cards. I don't really know how many of you are into college basketball, baseball, or hockey but I can definitely cover those if there is interest. Give me feedback so I can improve this series. Thank you and see you tomorrow!

[Miracle] Most Inspirational Speech in Sports History
Recently, I wrote a card about an emotional moment that gets me every time I watch the movie Remember the Titans. (If you guys haven't checked it out, you guys can check it out here ---> [Remember the Titans] Brother) And after hearing some feedback from all of you guys, I thought about the most inspirational moment in sports movies and this is what I came up with. Coach Herb Brooks' game speech before the Gold Medal match against the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics. The Soviets undoubtedly had the best hockey team in the world at that time. The Soviet Union had won all the Winter Olympics ice hockey tournaments since 1960. And the 1980 Winter Olympics were to be made even more difficult because the U.S. - Soviet relations were at all-time lows due to the on-going Cold War. And when, the U.S. hockey team were to face the Soviet Union for the gold medal on their home ground (Lake Placid), you probably can imagine what was going through the minds of not only the players, but the entire country! So, in order to prep these college players for the biggest game of their lives, Coach Brooks spoke these words. "Great moments are born from great opportunity, and that's what you have here tonight, boys. That's what you've earned here tonight. One game; if we played them ten times, they might win nine. But not this game, not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight we stay with them, and we shut them down because we can. Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world. You were born to be hockey players—every one of you, and you were meant to be here tonight. This is your time. Their time is done. It's over. I'm sick and tired of hearing about what a great hockey team the Soviets have. Screw 'em. This is your time. Now go out there and take it!" I feel like this is the most inspirational speeches of all time. What are your all-time favorite speeches in sports?
Carbon Wheelset
Carbon Wheelset Carbon wheelset made its appearance in the early nineties as the manufacturers began experimenting with the material which was used with the reputation of high-performance in Formula One. In the field of biking, it made an entry in 1989. Some categories of riders mostly racers the attraction of carbon wheels is beckoning. The acceptance of factory constructed wheelsets has encouraged its use by consumers. Upgrading a wheelset is now an easy job for customers and detail specifications can be compared with ease. The carbon wheelset is the market innovator right on the top as a choice. It is so because it improves the rider's capability and performance. The cost structure is significant still the carbon wheelset market has developed significantly surpassing in sales to lower-priced wheelsets. The consumers have achieved new gratitude for the aerodynamic performance of wheels. The four components of a wheel are · Rim · Hub · Spokes · Nipples Most of the carbon wheelset is purchasable in tubular and clincher form. The rims are fitted with rim brakes and some with disc brakes. The package is inclusive of a disc wheel. The rim height and width differ or else shaped depending on the model. The front wheels come with 16-20 spokes. Lightweight wheels are synonymous with high-quality carbon wheelset. The production of carbon wheelset is considered a form of art because lightweight experts have mastered the art of engineering meticulously. The construction experts visualize and build carbon wheelset which is lightweight in construction has stability, stiffness and comfort thus establishing compatibility between rider, road bike and its wheelset. The marketing agents also offer single wheel like a spare wheel. Special features The carbon wheelset needs less energy to accelerate the rotating mass and at the same time is very stable. Thus, carbon wheelset is a combination of · Aerodynamics-this will minimize drag very much so will make a noticeable difference at higher speeds. · Crosswind resistance · Stiffness-greater than an aluminium wheelset · Handling · Weight lightness-the lightest carbon wheelset possesses tubular rims. This wheel will be particularly good for climbers. · Braking performance-good carbon wheels can transform the ride of a bike. The bike has a more responsive nature. · Speed- carbon wheelset provide a smoother ride even on rough road surfaces · Agility · Stylish-the bike looks sleek when rolling on a pair of deep-section carbon wheelset. Several bikers invest in these wheels solely because it looks good. However, the layout method involves lining the mould with sheets of carbon fibre for curing. This whole process is manually done leading to increase of time and cost of manufacturing. The spoke fabrication and weight distribution of the carbon wheelset ensures total curve precision. The carbon wheelset is less likely to twist and no watt is destroyed but it is converted into acceleration quickly. Laminated spokes More so with light carbon wheelset the spoking factor of specific significance. The spokes are unified into the carbon rim and the wheel stays practically stiff. The spokes can withstand a traction force and guarantee a high level of safety on day-to-day riding. The wheels should be used as specified and, in that case, will last a long time.

Love It Or Hate It: Live Sporting Events?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about SELFIE STICKS. It was an EXTREMELY tight vote, but out of the 60 who gave your opinion, 33 of you said that they're actually kind of useful! Soooo... SELFIE STICKS WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about attending live sports games? Spectator sports have been around since the days of Ancient Greece, but the ones we know and love today came into being in the mid 19th century! The number of Americans that attend at least one live sporting event annually is easily in the tens of millions. However, the amount of them that find said sporting event COMPLETELY BORING is still widely unknown. How do YOU feel about spectator sports? Are they tons of fun or brutally boring? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx
[Follow-Up: Match Fixing in Tennis] Djokovic Was Offered $200K
Yesterday, my good friend @InPlainSight posted a card about allegations of match fixing in tennis. Authorities have claimed 16 players ranked in the Top 50 have taken part in match fixing over the last ten years. You can check out the card here ---> Tennis rocked by match fixing. Well, today, during a press conference at the Australia Open, the current world No. 1, Novak Djokovic opened up to address these allegations of match fixing in tennis. Djokovic claimed that in 2007, someone tried to offer him roughly $200,000 to lose a first-round match at a tournament in St. Petersburg, Russia. He also added that they did not approach him directly. Instead, he was approached through people working with him at that time. And Djokovic flat-out rejected the offer. On top of that, he did not even take part in that particular tournament. He went on to state that, "It made me feel terrible because I don't want to be anyhow linked to this kind of -- you know, somebody may call it an opportunity. For me, that's an act of unsportsmanship, a crime in sport honestly. I don't support it. I think there is no room for it in any sport, especially in tennis." I personally was really glad to see Djokovic step up and tell the whole world, that he is not linked to these allegations of match fixing. I believe the man's words and I'm glad to see that one of my favorite athletes did not take part in this unsportsman-like conduct. But, the fact that Djokovic was approached to fix matches probably means that other players have been approached as well. It just makes these allegations that there are players involved, more legitimate. I'm hoping that this case is solved immediately. Also, anyone involved in match-fixing should be immediately banned from the world of sports. It must not be tolerated.

The Pros of having a women's motorcycle jeans-
Depending on the severity of a crash, a good woman's Kevlar jeans are highly protective against road-surface and can be worn after two or three crashes. They do have a breaking point but they are still 100 times better than normal denim. It’s good to see that women's motorcycling attire is getting more and more popular day by day. Women's Kevlar jeans are a good option if you are looking for more style as well as protection than the random regular denim. Women’s motorcycle jeans are as important as other riding items. Mostly, women prefer wearing normal denim pants with leather jackets and boots while riding. Whether riding as a passenger or riding on your own, protecting your lower body with armored best women's motorcycle jeans or leather pants is necessary. Many brands are now manufacturing women riding attire that includes women's motorcycle jeans, boots, armored jackets and hoodies, and other essentials according to their unique physique, as the number of ladies as motorcyclists started increasing around the globe. Like men, many women only prefer wearing a full-face helmet and leather gloves while riding. These two items are most important but other riding essentials can’t be ignored. Kevlar jeans and leather pants are specially built to protect lower body (your legs, knees, thighs, and back) injuries from uneven and rough road surfaces. These special riding pants have built-in armors in the main impact zones to protect your legs from fractures and severe knee and back injuries. They come in a variety of designs, styles, and colors. Mostly, women can’t decide whether they should choose leather pants or go with women’s Kevlar jeans with protective armors. Both Kevlar and leather Women's motorcycle jeans provide the best abrasion protection, rain protection, impact protection and give that stylish biker look according to their different textures. Leather pants no doubt look so attractive and stylish and have very high resistance against the road- surfaces, but it is not practical to wear them in summer season or on long distances. If you are a woman who rides regularly to go to offices or any workplace or for off-roading, buying a good pair of Kevlar jeans would be the best choice or decision you ever make. Works well in all kinds of weather- When we talk about protection from rain, both leather or Kevlar women’s motorcycle jeans would get water-logged. The leather pants require many days to get dry, and you cannot put them in the dryer. On the other hand, Kevlar-lined denims dry in an hour or two with or without drying, and ready to be worn on the next day. Also, leather is breathless, and in summers and women’s Kevlar jeans have air vents to keep your legs dry. The high-quality women's motorcycle jeans with armor have two styles, the synthetic textiles and Kevlar lined denims, both are favorable depending on the way you ride. Armor is needed even in leather pants for the protection from impacts. High-quality women’s motorcycle jeans have armor in the knee and hips, the most common impact zones. Some manufacturers made women’s Kevlar jeans plus size with pockets so you can easily remove the armors when not riding, and some have outside zippers. Wrap up! It is so good to see women in motorcycling and the motorcycle gear companies making the gear according to the women's needs. Motorcycle gloves and helmets are almost the same for women riders as for men, but best women's Kevlar jeans are unique in their styles as well as sizes.

Carbon Road Bike Frames
Carbon Road Bike Frames Not all carbon road bike frames are made in Asia. The frame is the heart and soul of the bicycle. All components are secured together into a single cohesive whole. Thus, buyers when selecting the correct frame, the basic material matters a lot. A good carbon road bike frame is a combination of carbon fibers of different types which are used in different places in a frame for extremely specific purposes. Carbon road bike frames are used by cyclists and in the racing world. When out to buy a new bike, the market will offer multiple bike frame material and choice becomes difficult. The alternative is between aluminum, carbon fiber, titanium, and steel. Carbon road bike frames are manufactured through the weaving of carbon fiber strands and allowing it to set within a hard epoxy resin. These are light, sturdy, and reasonably stiff. The material can be crafted into aerodynamic shapes. Features of the carbon frames. Comfort-ride quality has been accepted as beneficial for carbon frames. The carbon can be devised to be stiff in some directions and yielding in others. This makes the carbon frame convenient over bumps and rough roads but stiff sufficiently for efficient pedalling and vertically compliant. Carbon by its very nature lessens vibration when riding. The tires and touch points also influence the comfort level. Weight- a lighter bike can better the riding experience. It is possible to construct exceptionally light and capable bikes out of carbon. The strength-to-weight ratio in carbon is better. All the carbon is not equal. There are grades in carbon. The lower-grade carbon consists of more fillers leading to cost-cutting but enhancing the weight. That is why carbon is the best choice. The higher-grade carbon through expert engineering brings out carbon bikes that are strong but intensely light. Frame only contributes to a part of the bike's total weight. The remaining weight is made up of components. Wheels specifically will make a big difference in bike weight and its heaviness when riding. Receptivity and stiffness-the bike must be laterally stiff and vertically compliant. When pedals are pushed hard, or the corner is to be maneuvered a good frame requires stiffness to oppose the torsional forces so that torsional forces help in handling the bike. Technically carbon as a material is best suited for the purpose. Durability- most riders are fearful of damaging an expensive carbon frame. Carbon fiber strength to weight ratio is higher compared to steel. Carbon has limitless fatigue life but is likely to get damaged by the direct impact such as a big crash. Carbon can be repaired with ease and the old becomes as good as new. Expenditure-carbon is expensive as it is produced through the more labor-intensive method. Every frame needs a committed mold which adds to the cost. Carbon fiber layout is possible by hand. Components are easy to upgrade than frames. Visual examination-carbon fiber unlocked new potential in cycle design. This has made the bike curves smooth and swooping. The bike is beautiful and appealing. Carbon delivers the performance of many high-end carbon fiber frames.
The 5 Strangest Superstition in Sports!
Hello sports fans! It's Friday the 13th! Here are some of the strangest superstitions in sports! Michael Jordan Michael always wore his UNC shorts under his NBA shorts. Thus, he wore longer shorts than his fellow players at that time. In the end however, his fellow players followed suit after the legend. Serena Williams Serena Williams is known for not changing socks once during a tournament. It sucks to wear a pair of socks for more than a day...imagine how it would feel to wear the same socks for an entire tournament! I guess Serena doesn't mind it considering the number of tournaments she has won. Brian Ulracher Brian Ulracher ate two chocolate chip cookies before every game. Maybe that was the secret to his muscular body. I think it'd be fair to call him the "Cookie Monster". Caron Butler Caron Butler was known to be an avid fan of Mountain Dew. He loved the drink so much that he drank before and during every game. During his UNC days, he asked his wife to pick him a 2-L bottle of the green stuff, and drank half of it before the game, and the rest during half-time. In 2007, the Wizards and NBA banned him from drinking it during games so he eventually quit the whole thing in 2009. Moises Alou This one has to be the most f*cked up one out of all of them. Moises Alou used to pee on his own hands to harden them! Should we see that as commitment to the game of baseball or just some pretty weird ass shit? Oh and by the way, don't try to harden your hands by peeing on them ladies and gentlemen, because doctors have confirmed that peeing on your hand doesn't harden them. It actually softens them. @jeff4122 @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @InPlainSight @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @salahabdalla @Moose892 @BrookieyElba @SamuelRodriguez @ValerieAlissaPa @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Jovi @Shippudenguy21 @AbdulrahmanSaad @trinityarcangel @thefeels @Link4TW @ChriSingularis @sanazsanaz @WilliamBrown @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @TravisBeck @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @gatorchick96 @MatthewBoughton @MarcusJiles @BrandonMcNeil @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @manbungo2000 @DerekGumtow @havic @Straightshooter @PhilAnthony @Kirooken @yaakattackk @RodneyYoung @DreJones @JonathanKerns @bnzattoni @TravisManning @GalacticChakra @smothgreen @afxs @johnnolastname @ChristopherKenn @ChasePage @coreywriley91@MikeWolf @MrTenThirty @JasonNilsson @BrunoDutch @SherzTYC @krishntejanand @addri @ChrisStephens What was your favorite one from the list?
