Congrats Sim Bhullar

22 03 2013

Congratulations to Sim Bhullar, Indian-Canadian basketball star, on his NCAA debut. He stands at 7’5″ and weighs in at 355lbs.

His first season on the team, Bhullar averaged 15 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4 blocked shots in the semifinals and finals of the WAC tournament last week – leading his team to a second straight title and earning the Aggies an opening-round NCAA tournament matchup with fourth-seeded Saint Louis on Thursday.

On Thursday March 21, 2013, in the national spotlight, Bhullar posted 4 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks in 27 minutes in a New Mexico St loss. He will likely be back at it again next year.

During the game, the announcers did a brief story on his 7’3″, 16yr old brother Tanveer and his visit and warm reception at New Mexico St. Will he be following in Sim’s footsteps and attending New Mexico St as well?

Big in Japan

30 07 2011

Originally Published: May 15, 2008

Big in Japan in New York City. Sell out crowds and T-Shirt sales. Today I think it’s safe to say that Ichiro is familiar with Inoki, and Matsuzaka and Matsui surely pay their respects to Nomo. From Soriano to Shinjo, the influence and marketability of Japanese players has only grown. In fact, even the flops are good business.

Remember Me?
I’m 6 foot 4 inches. I weigh 240lb strong.

My nickname is Japan was Kurage – Japanese for ‘Jellyfish’

In 1997 I signed for 4 years, $12.8 Million to play in MLB

I have something up my sleeve…literally. I request 30 tiny magnets be attached to my right arm while I pitch – for blood circulation of course.

I carry around Nike bags in spring training, despite the $95 Million deal I signed with Adidas before throwing 1 major league pitch.

I sold out every seat in Yankee Stadium in my MLB debut; that’s 51,901 fans. In retrospect, the hype was only comparable to Mickey Mantle’s debut in 1951.

On the night of my first start I generated a $1M increase in on-site Stadium revenue.

My 1st game was broadcast to 35 million homes and 38 large public outdoor screens in urban areas of Japan.

My name used to be ‘ERA-boo’ in Japan – but it quickly became ‘ir-RAH-boo’ in the states. Typhoon Irabu – as the T-Shirts said.

He is now fondly known in baseball circles as simply ‘The Toad’

Meet the NFL’s Most Interesting Man

Story by David Walter Banks for The Wall Street Journal

The wonderfully named Zoltan Mesko speaks five languages and grew up dreaming of being an aerospace engineer before graduating from Michigan with a business degree and a master’s in sports management. He got lured into football only after he smashed a ceiling light with a kick ball in his Twinsburg, Ohio, junior-high-school gym.  Yet this spring, the New England Patriots selected Mr. Mesko in the fifth round of the NFL Draft, with the 150th selection. He now finds himself training with the team in Foxboro, Mass., where he rubs elbows and trades barbs with stars like Tom Brady and Randy Moss.
