Mamba Out

Family, friends and fans will say their final goodbye to Kobe and Gianna Bryant as well as the seven other victims of the helicopter crash from last month at the memorial service this morning at the Staples Center beginning at 10a.  It’s unclear who the speakers will be, but I would imagine LeBron James and Magic Johnson will be among those who speak.
The broadcast of the memorial will be on NBA TV as well as several other websites including CNN and NBA TV .com
Former Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner, who is now with the Arizona Diamondbacks has been living a double-life.  During the off season while not pitching Bumgarner has apparently been participating in rodeo competitions under the alias “Mason Saunders.”

The sports website The Athletic came across a Facebook photo from an Arizona rodeo, with a picture of “Saunders” competing on horseback and questioned him about it.  Bumgarner confirmed it was him saying that they were ruining his alias.  He told them he tries to not garner any attention while competing in his second sport but it’s more likely that he is trying not to get into trouble with the team.  It’s surely a violation of his $85 million contract with the Diamondbacks.   It’s also been confirmed he competed in a rodeo just two days before he pitched in a Spring Training game with the Giants last March.

Raiders Moving On

And the Raiders’ move from Oakland to Las Vegas is almost fully complete and coaches and staff seem to be eating up their new found home.

Head coach Jon Gruden appeared on the big screen before Tyson Fury’s win over Deontay Wilder in a heavyweight fight that the Raiders will host their first  mandatory minicamp in Vegas, not in Alameda.  He said it will be open to the public.

The Raiders are expected to host their training camp in Napa this July and August for the last time before shifting all football operations to Nevada full time.
