Rest In Peace… Soar With The Angels
Are you serious… WOW, nothing like getting carried away with the win. But wait a minute, I’m asking? What happened to the “LOCKER ROOM PRIVACY and RESPECT” between players and staff. Some one in that locker room shot the video and posted it. So that man is in violation of the “Privacy Claus” of the locker room. There’s just no more respect for privacy when someone can make a dollar.. It’s all about the money. Paparazzi in the locker room needs to go.
Cleveland Browns Odell Beckham jr. was on a roll in the locker room as his Alumni LSU wins. Beckham decided it would be ok to play “Slap Ass” with the superdome security officer. The officer was notifying the players to put out their celebration cigars. By law the officer has to ask the players to put the cigars out.. It’s the law… The LSU players were okay with that. It was only Beckham who was taking advantage of the situation.
Like the players say, It’s a safe place for the players. Many different things go on that perhaps the “people” may think is incorrect or don’t understand. This really doesn’t need to be blown up with video and streamed. Back in the day you never would see any of the locker room antics exploited in the newspapers. Unless it was a brawl between players and that was one in thousand. It was private between the players what took place in the locker room.
Complaint was filed by the Superdome and a warrant was issued for Beckham’s arrest. The warrant was recalled and the officer is not pressing charges…
1998 WNBA Los Angeles SPARKS Game Day Booklet and Stat Photo Card Set #4
1998 was the second season for the Los Angeles Sparks at the Forum. As we all waited in anticipation for the players to take the court, we could feel the power of the crowd. It was overwhelming to see the fans welcoming in a new season for the SPARKS. Wanting a win in the 1998 playoffs. Exciting to see what the new season would bring. As the players were being introduced people were still streaming into their seats. It was a packed house for the opening game.
The feeling that women had made it to the top tier of sports was exciting. Finally we had positive role models for the young girls growing up in this area.
1998 was the second consecutive season for The Sparks. Missing out again on the playoffs. This would be the last season they missed the playoffs until the 2007 season.

Alvin Christian “Al” Kraenzlein (December 12, 1876 – January 6, 1928), known as “the father of the modern hurdling technique”, was an American track-and-field athlete, and the first sportsman in the history of Olympic games to win four individual gold medals in a single discipline at the 1900 Summer Olympics in Paris. Before, Carl Schuhmann, a German athlete, won four Olympic titles in gymnastics and wrestling at the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens. As of 2016, Alvin Kraenzlein is the only track-and-field athlete who has won four individual titles at one Olympics. Kraenzlein is also known for developing a pioneering technique of straight-leg hurdling, which allowed him to set two world hurdle records. He is an Olympic Hall of Fame (1984) and USA Track & Field (1974) inductee.

Kraenzlein was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a son of Johann Georg Kränzlein, a brewer, and Maria Augusta Schmidt, both of a German origin. After his family moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he attended the Milwaukee’s East Side High School, where he became involved in sports. In 1895, during the Wisconsin Interscholastic Championships, he won first places in the 100-yard dash, 120-yard high hurdles, 220-yard low hurdles, high jump, and shot put.
He attended the University of Wisconsin where he studied engineering. In 1896, he won the 220-yard low hurdles, the high jump and placed second in the 100-yard dash and shot put at the freshman-sophomore track-and-field meet. During the 1897 Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship, Kraenzlein won the 220-yard low hurdles and the high jump. He led the Wisconsin team to the team title. He also won the 1897 Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) title in the 220-yard low hurdles. In 1897 Alvin Kraenzlein set an indoor world record of 36.6 seconds in the 300-yard low hurdles.
After winning his first athletics title in 1897 – the 220 yards hurdles race at the AAU championship, Kraenzlein achieved more notability by winning five AAU titles in both hurdling and long jump events, and eight Intercollegiate Association of Amateur Athletes of America titles in dash, hurdling and the long jump. Being a student at the University of Philadelphia, he established world records for the 120 metres high hurdles and the 220 metres low hurdles, the last standing for quarter of a century. In 1899, Kraenzlein established the long jump world record of 24′ 3 1/2″. He was a leader of the Penn’s track-and-field team that won four consecutive team IC4A titles.
Kraenzlein was especially noted for his hurdling technique, as he was among the first to practice the modern method of straight-lead-leg (the first leg over the hurdle remains straight and parallel with the ground) hurdle clearing. Arthur C. M. Croome from Great Britain first attempted the straight-lead-leg style in 1886, however, Alvin Kraenzlein perfected it and turned into a mainstream technique. This was significant development, as it enabled athletes to over-come the hurdles without reducing speed.
