‘Shock! Korean↔Japanese nationality switch’…ESPN, “Kim Min-jae is the leader of the Japanese national team’s defense!” crosses the line

It was a shocking report. It’s unacceptable from a Korean perspective, and it was done by the world’s largest sports media outlet.
ESPN is the largest sports media organization in the United States and the largest sports media organization in the world.

Part of the ESPN group is ESPN Deportes.

It’s a Spanish-language outlet for Hispanics in the United States.

ESPN Deportes is a big deal.

In the lead-up to the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, the outlet published an article highlighting the star players from each country that will be competing in the tournament.
South Korea’s Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) are all on the list. Japan, Korea’s biggest rival for the title, is represented by Takefusa Kubo (Real Sociedad), Kaoru Mitoma (Brighton & Hove Albion), Wataru Endo (Liverpool) and Takehiro Tomiyasu (Arsenal).
On Son Heung-min: “The Tottenham captain is already a legend in Asian football.

He is regarded as one of the best players in the history of Asian soccer.

At Tottenham and with the Korean national team, he is an ace and a spiritual leader.

Korea’s hopes depend on him.”
As for Lee Kang-in, “He is an undisputed talent who never stops growing.

After shining in Mallorca, PSG spotted him and it didn’t take long for him to show what he can do here,” while for Hwang Hee-chan, “The Wolverhampton striker is having his best season yet.

He has scored 10 goals in the EPL and has become a great figure for the team.

He will form a great duo with Son Heung-min.”
Nothing wrong with that.

The problem came when he introduced Kim Min-jae. “

The defensive leader of the Japanese national team is already one of the best center backs in European football,” ESPN wrote of Kim.

They put the word “nipn” (Japan) in front of his name.

In Spanish, the outlet wrote
“El lder defensivo del combinado nipn ya es uno de los centrales ms destacados del ftbol europeo.” 온라인카지노
Translated into English, it reads.
“The defensive leader of the Japanese team is already one of the most outstanding center-backs in European football.”
“Kim Min-jae signed for Bayern Munich after shining for Italian champions Napoli.

It didn’t take him long to establish himself. He has tremendous class and will be the foundation for South Korea to win the title in Qatar.”

The article was already broken earlier.

They wrote “Korea” next to Kim Min-jae’s name, but in the description of the player, it was actually Japanese.

It was a ridiculous report, and the use of the word “Japan” was sure to anger Korean soccer fans and the Korean public.

This is the current state of the world’s largest sports media outlet: carelessness, arrogance, and ignorance of the relationship between South Korea and Japan.

Grand Lisboa Reorganization Starts Next Year: Daisy Ho

Actual construction work to renovate the Grand Lisboa Casino Hotel in downtown Macau is likely to begin next year, President Daisy Hochupung said when asked by GGRAsia about Friday’s event.

The reform is currently in the planning stage, the executive said. She also confirmed that it will include the reconstruction of hotel rooms, the addition of restaurants, and plans for additional stores. She was speaking at a reception at the Grand Lisboa Palace Casino Resort in Kotai earlier this month to mark the 74th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

After Grand Lisboa’s renovation, the “number of hotel rooms we will maintain” is the same, Ho said. According to information from the Macau government tourism agency, the property has 431 rooms and suites.

Grand Lisboa already has several restaurants, other food and beverage stores, jewelry stores, and gift shops, as well as several floors of casino games. The property also houses an additional outlet for Macau SLOT Co. Ltd., the city’s sports betting concession company.

The property has been one of Macau’s casino hotel complexes since February 2007 in phases.

Grand Lisboa posted total revenue of HK$2.4 billion ($306.5 million) in the first half of this year, including total casino gaming revenue (GGR) of HK$2.27 billion and non-gaming revenue of HK$137 million. This follows first-half earnings from SJM Holdings, which was announced in August.

In the six months to June 30, the hotel occupancy rate at the location was 87.8%, with per-room revenue of HK$901.

At Friday’s event, her group said it was ready to meet additional concession-related investments required by Macau’s government if Macau’s annual GGR reached more than 180 billion MOPs ($22.3 billion).

The six Macau concessionaries must increase their collective investment by up to 20% during the current 10-year concession period once the market-wide threshold of $180 billion is met.

Kelly, who gave up the first starting pitcher, also said, “15 wins is enough,”···This year, ‘a foreign 30-win duo’, LG’s confidence

Until the second half of last season, LG’s foreign pitcher Casey Kelly (35) was destined to leave the KBO League. As he played for five years since 2019, his pitching power and stability declined significantly last year, and there were countless rumors of a substitution during the season.

It was during the Korean Series that LG manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who had decided to replace both foreign pitchers, changed his mind. It was because of three folk balls that Kelly, who started in the first game, threw.

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop, who recently called his first starting pitcher when he hired foreign pitcher Detrick N.S., also expects that he will win 15 games for Kelly, who will be the second starting pitcher at the same time. “One of the reasons I decided to renew Kelly’s contract is forkball. While adding one forkball, I created the conditions to play here for two to three more years,” Yeom said in a telephone interview. “With that forkball added, I think we can win 15 games.”

Coach Yeom Kyung-yeop asked him to add more folk balls throughout the season when he threw sliders and change-ups. He did so because he needed a pitching arsenal that could lower the ball speed and lose timing. However, fearing that he would strain his elbow, he did not throw one. Despite persuasion that the fact that throwing fork balls frequently cause injury to pitchers due to their ability to properly throw balls, Kelly threw fork balls in the first round of the Korean Series. “Don’t tell the manager in advance because it was a surprise event,” he said, revealing his folk balls that he had been quietly honing. Although he only threw three pitches, Kelly’s new pitching arduous to opposing KT batters, and LG is judging that he displayed potential.

Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop said, “It’s not because I threw the pitch type that I talked about. He showed how Kelly will change with the fork ball. I felt it myself, too. I decided to renew my contract because I thought I could go back to the old Kelly that the opponent had a hard time.”

Kelly has been LG’s ace player. There have been two seasons in which he has 15 wins in five years, namely in 2020 (15 wins) and in 2022 (16 wins). He was not the type that gave an overwhelming impression, and as time passed, the power was gradually diminishing as batters in the league adapted. Kelly has accepted the invitation for change, and is preparing to make full use of new weapons this year.

LG stressed that it is looking for a pitcher who can beat Kelly as the second starting pitcher while seeking a new foreign pitcher contract this year. While expecting 18 wins for the new pitcher N.S., Yeom Kyung-yeop also expects 15 wins from Kelly. 15 wins is an ace record for any team.

“Our team is equipped with good batting performance, defense, and a must-win team. If the starting pitcher himself manages to a certain extent, he can achieve 15 wins. Kelly, who failed last year, said, “I think this year is enough.” Manager Yeom Kyung-yeop, who has ordered changeups for new pitchers N.S. who mainly throws fastballs, is also certain that Kelly, who has decided to make changes by himself and is preparing for it, will revive.

Although LG won the title altogether last year, there was no pitcher with 15 wins. Lim Chan-kyu (14 wins) recorded the most wins in his team. Kelly won 10 games and Adam Plutko won 11 games, leaving a 30-win foreign duo often referred to as the conditions of the winning team. Since 1994, when there were Sanghoon Lee (18 wins), Kim Tae-won (16 wins), and Jeong Sam-heum (15 wins), it is only in 2022 when Kelly had 16 wins and Plutko had 15 wins. LG, which has won without a 30-win duo, is aiming for its second consecutive win, hoping for 30 wins by the new foreign duo that has added a new lineup. Kelly’s revival is essential.

“Due to director Kim Sung-geun’s harsh words…” The legendary Park Yong-taek special lecture was full of notes

KBS N Sports Baseball commentator Park Yong-taek (45) attended the 2024 KBO Rookie Orientation held at the Daejeon Convention Center on the 9th as a lecturer. He has started training the team in front of 132 freshmen from 10 clubs, including rookie and nurturing players, who are at the starting line of the KBO League. He sincerely delivered his experiences and advice on the importance of managing his body, people, mental and money as a professional baseball player, in detail.

Park, who was invited to the rookie orientation for two consecutive years since last year, said, “To be honest, a professional baseball player does not have work-life balance until he is in the uniform or until he is on the field (as a leader) even after retirement. I have never seen a player who is a good match for work-life balance and has succeeded in baseball. Giving money to players in a club means sacrificing your life a little for the team,” adding that he shared an episode with manager Kim Sung-keun, who leads the Monsters in the entertainment program “The Greatest Baseball.”

“Even after retirement, I have continued to play baseball in the strongest baseball league. Of course, I was playing it seriously, but I never enjoyed my favorite baseball (in the professional league). I thought I would do it while enjoying 20 to 30 percent of the game, but manager Kim Seong-geun came and said, “I’m not getting paid for it.” “I’m not broadcasting to make you laugh. I’m giving you money to play baseball well.” He said, “Play baseball with the mindset that you are a professional baseball player, not a retired player,” and I felt like I got hit in the back of my head. As the manager said, I am still playing baseball after retirement, even after retirement. “Even now, I think that I am a professional baseball player,” he said. “You should basically have that mindset as well.” In fact, the strongest baseball advocates the real baseball and continues to be loved by fans with real matches between retired and amateur players.

He did not spare realistic advice. “It is never helpful to hold it in even though it hurts. If there were any regrets in professional life, it is about participation in overseas leagues or the national team. I had problems with throwing balls (in outdoor defense),” Park said. “My shoulder hurt a lot in my second or third year, but I ran stubbornly. I missed the surgery and rehabilitation period after a few years. I spent more than 15 years in such a bad condition on my shoulder. Many players develop such diseases but if they get sick, it will explode someday. I need to approach the coaches with an open mind and take good care of my body.”

“In order to remove uniforms without regret, we should continue to challenge ourselves without giving up,” said Park, who also stressed the importance of privacy and fan service outside the stadium. “The growth I expect is to keep going upward, but the actual growth does not come true. Sometimes it falls, and sometimes it goes up slightly and then falls deeper. Then, at one point, suddenly, it pops up. Too many players give up just before the start. You should not give up from the beginning. Even if you fail once, you have to go up again. The result comes out, not come out,” he stressed.

Finally, Park said, “You have to shake in the strong wind, soak in the strong rain, and withstand the hot sunlight to germinate, bloom, and bear fruit. In the future, you will be hit by so many rain and wind as professional baseball players, with hot sunlight and very cold winters. There will also be dark darkness where the front seems to be hard to see, and there will be times when the end goes into a tunnel somewhere. But many seniors went through all that time and climbed to the spot. I hope they will become passionate professional Korean baseball players who will never tire.”

Franz Beckenbauer, President Emeritus of Bayern Munich, dies

Franz Beckenbauer, honorary chairman of Bayern Munich, nicknamed “Kaiser” (Emperor), has died. He was 78.
“He died peacefully the day before,” Beckenbauer’s family told dpa news agency on Monday.

They did not disclose the cause of his death.
Born in Munich in 1945, Beckenbauer joined the prestigious Bayern Munich in 1958 at the age of 13.

He led Bayern Munich to the top of the Bundesliga all four times and to three consecutive European Cups, the predecessor to the UEFA Champions League.

With the national team, he captained the team to the 1974 World Cup victory over West Germany.

After his playing career, Beckenbauer coached the West German national team to the 1990 World Cup title.

Beckenbauer won the World Cup as a player and manager alongside Brazil’s Mario Jagaloo and France’s Didier Deschamps, who passed away today. 카지노사이트가이드
He became a football administrator in 1994 when he took over as chairman of Bayern Munich and served as president of the organizing committee that brought the 2006 World Cup to Germany.

In his later years, he was investigated by the German Football Association (DFB) and then by Swiss prosecutors over allegations that he paid off FIFA executive committee members during the 2006 World Cup bid.

He escaped punishment when the statute of limitations expired in 2020.
During his career, Beckenbauer redefined the role of the libero with his grace and lightness of touch, according to the dpa news agency.

Current German national team coach Julian Nagelsmann said: “Beckenbauer’s interpretation of the libero position changed soccer.

Perhaps it reflected the spirit of cultural liberalism and freedom that was spreading in Europe in the 1960s,” he lamented.

Sungjae Lim is tied for second place

South Korean Sungjae Lim is tied for second place after the first day of The Sentry, the opening event of the 2024 season on the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour ($20 million purse).

Sungjae Lim carded nine birdies and one bogey for an 8-under 65 in the first round of the season-opening The Sentry at the par-73 Plantation Course in Kapalua, Hawaii on Friday (Sept. 5).

Lim will be looking for his third career victory, two years and three months after his first since the ShrinersChildren Open in October 2021.
