Wow! Expansion Las Vegas Knights reach Stanley Cup Final

Sometimes, there are no words

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Ryan Reaves scored the winning goal, Marc-Andre Fleury made 31 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights pushed their remarkable expansion season into the Stanley Cup Final, beating the Winnipeg Jets 2-1 on Sunday in Game 5 of the Western Conference final.

Alex Tuch also scored for the Knights. They lost Game 1 in Winnipeg before winning four straight to become the first expansion team since the 1968 St. Louis Blues — when the six initial expansion teams were put alone in the West — to get to the final.

WWE Hall of Famer Bruno Samartino passes away

RIP

Bruno Sammartino, one of the most iconic stars in professional wrestling history, has died at age 82, the WWE announced Wednesday morning.

Sammartino was the then-World Wide Wrestling Federation’s longest-reigning world champion, holding the title for nearly eight consecutive years. He began his record title reign after beating Buddy Rogers at Madison Square Garden on May 17, 1963.

He would not relinquish the belt until a loss to Ivan Koloff on Jan. 18, 1971.

After regaining the title in December 1973, Sammartino went on to have a run of more than three years; that’s also one of the five-longest world title reigns in the company’s history.

Those title reigns are indicative of Sammartino’s place as the centerpiece of Vincent J. McMahon’s WWWF, which later became the WWF and then the WWE.

A legend

Biggest upset ever?

Sixteen seed seed UMBC,that is The University of Maryland-Baltimore County, pulled off a sports shocker by knocking off 1 seed Virginia last night. No 16 had ever beaten a top seed, much less blown them out. 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jairus Lyles couldn’t suppress a smile, knowing that a school known more for chess than hoops had finally made it happen — a 16 ousting a 1 in March Madness.

The University of Maryland-Baltimore County stunned the sports world by pulling off the most shocking upset in college basketball history, hammering Virginia 74-54 on Friday night to become the first No. 16 seed ever to beat a No. 1 seed in the men’s NCAA Tournament.

Virginia entered the NCAA Tournament as the No. 1 overall seed after going 31-2 in the regular season, including 20-1 in ACC competition.

Roger Federer wins record 20th Grand Slam Championship

Best tennis player ever!

Roger Federer beat Marin Cilic on Sunday in the Australian Open final to win his 20thGrand Slam singles title.

The 36-year-old tennis star beat the Croatian player in five-set match 6-2, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. It’s Federer’s sixth Australian Open title. He also won eight Wimbledon titles, five in the U.S. Open and one at the French Open.

Greatest athlete ever? In my view he is on a very, very short list
