Also HIGHEST in COLLEGE BASKETBALL HISTORY
Neither Michael Jordan nor LeBron James. Pete Maravich may have been the best basketball player of all time, but he was not and never will be. Pistol Pete was a visionary, a young man touched by the magic wand that revolutionized the sport of the basket in the seventies. If he had played in our times, it would be news on social networks daily and the subject of countless compilations of YouTube.
Pete was a mix of Stephen Curry and JR Smith, but it was too soon. His prodigious talent, combined with his tendency to self-destruction, made him a misunderstood player. All this, combined with his fondness for extraterrestrials, drinking and Jesus Christ, made him the toy broken par excellence.
From very small, Pete showed some supernatural abilities with the ball, that did not do more than to increase with the insane routines of handling of ball that it forced to him to realize his father. That boy bounced the ball in the middle of the cinema and even from the window of a moving car, and later in his career Pete recognized that in his youth he became a "basketball droid".

In all the history of the NCAA, nobody has surpassed the 3667 total points that Maravich scored between 1967 and 1970. When he was only 40, the uncle declared to the media that he was "down", and the important thing is that he was not kidding. Pete was a perfectionist who was never satisfied. He only carried the weight of the team, and his father knew it very well - "he has more pressure than any other boy in all America" ​​- but he did not care either.
 
 
 
Pete Maravich also known by his nickname Pistol Pete, was an American professional basketball player. Maravich was born in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, part of the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, and raised in the Carolinas. Maravich starred in college at Louisiana State University (LSU). He was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He played for three NBA teams until injuries forced his retirement in 1980. He is the all-time leading NCAA Division Iscorer with 3,667 points scored and an average of 44.2 points per game. All of his accomplishments were achieved before the adoption of the three point line and shot clock, and despite being unable to play varsity as a freshman under then-NCAA rules.

ALI FRAZIER MSG NYC NewYork SInatra





ALI - FRAZIER

"FIGHT of The CENTURY"

Madison Square Garden

NEW YORK

March 8, 1971


When Joe Frazier met Muhammad Ali at Madison Square Garden on March 8, 1971, the storyline went much deeper than two undefeated heavyweights clashing for the belt. Ali had refused induction in the U.S. Army, was considered radical chic and seemed to embody the culture of the 1960s. Frazier was cast as a champion fighting for the establishment. Frank Sinatra was a ring-side photographer for Life magazine. Barbra Streisand, Sammy Davis Jr., Hugh Hefner, Dustin Hoffman and Diana Ross were ringside. Burt Lancaster was part of the closed circuit broadcast team. All that, and the fight actually lived up to its billing as the "Fight of the Century." After 15 rounds of thrilling toe-to-toe action, Frazier won a unanimous decision.

FRANK SINATRA at The ALI - FRAZIER Fight

March 1971  MADISON SQUARE GARDEN , New York


Frank Sinatra figures into this story as a boxing fan and amateur photographer – and also, of course, by his own high-powered celebrity (for more on Sinatra see “Sinatra Stories”). The famous singer and Hollywood actor was then known for his 1969 hit song, “My Way,” which had reached the Top 40 in the U.S. and did even better in the U.K. However, by early 1971 he was also talking retirement, possibly by June, after he completed a charity event.
But that March of 1971, Sinatra was keen to get a ringside seat for the Ali-Frazier fight, but few were available. One report had it that he made a deal withLife magazine to do some photography for the magazine at the Ali-Frazier fight, which would give him more or less free license to roam around up close to the action. But in the introduction to Life’s March 16th, 1971 edition reporting on the fight, managing editor Ralph Graves explained in an “editor’s note” column how the magazine came to use both Sinatra and writer Norman Mailer beyond its own reporters and photographers. On Sinatra’s role, contrary to some other stories at the time, here’s how Graves described it:
…For our pictures of the action, we were relying on the magazine pool photographers at ringside, especially Sport’s Illustrated’s Neil Leifer and Tony Triolo, who delivered outstanding pictures. But it never hurts to have a horseshoe in your glove. Six years ago staff writer Tommy Thompson and photographer John Dominis were doing a story on Frank Sinatra. Sinatra was fascinated by Dominis’ equipment and admitted he had been interested in taking pictures for 20 years. Shortly before the fight Tommy learned that Sinatra had wangled himself a ringside seat and was going to take pictures with a battery of cameras. Tommy went to work wangling Sinatra into letting us have a look at his film. We didn’t expect to get anything the professional photographers didn’t have, but it might be worth inspecting. Indeed, Sinatra wound up getting the cover, a memorable full-spread picture [inside the magazine] (yes, he held his camera at that angle on purpose), and two other shots in our story. We are offering him a job…

The FIGHT of THE CENTURY



Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier, billed as the Fight of the Century (also known as The Fight), was the boxing match between WBC/WBA heavyweight champion Joe Frazier (26–0, 23 KOs) and The Ring heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali (31–0, 25 KOs), held on Monday, March 8, 1971, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.It was the first time that two undefeated boxers fought each other for the heavyweight title. Frazier won in 15 rounds via unanimous decision. It was the first of a trilogy, followed by the rematch fights Super Fight II (1974) and Thrilla in Manila (1975), both won by Ali.


On the evening of the match, Madison Square Garden had a circus-like atmosphere, with scores of policemen to control the crowd, outrageously dressed fans, and countless celebrities, from Norman Mailer to Woody Allen. Frank Sinatra, who, after being unable to procure a ringside seat, took photographs for Life magazine instead. Artist LeRoy Neiman painted Ali and Frazier as they fought. Burt Lancaster served as a color commentator for the closed-circuit broadcast. Though Lancaster had never performed as a sports commentator before, he was hired by the fight's promoter, Jerry Perenchio, who was also a friend. The other commentators were play-by-play announcer Don Dunphy and boxing champion Archie Moore. The fight was sold to, and broadcast by closed circuit, to 50 countries in 12 languages via ringside reporters to an audience estimated at 300 million, a record viewership for a television event at that time. Riots broke out at several venues as unresolvable technical issues interrupted the broadcast in several cities in the third round. And, although no live radio coverage of the fight itself was allowed under the terms of the promotion, the Mutual Radio Network did broadcast the fight, the night of March 8th, with announcers Van Patrick and Charles King, together with many other sports commentators, providing round-by-round summaries live as they came out over the UPI and AP wire services.
The referee for the fight was Arthur Mercante, Sr. After the fight, Mercante, a veteran referee of hundreds of fights, said "They both threw some of the best punches I've ever seen."
The fight itself exceeded even its promotional hype and went the full 15-round championship distance. Ali dominated the first three rounds, peppering the shorter Frazier with rapier-like jabs that raised welts on the champion's face. In the closing seconds of round three, Frazier connected with a tremendous hook to Ali's jaw, snapping his head back. Frazier began to dominate in the fourth round, catching Ali with several of his famed left hooks and pinning him against the ropes to deliver tremendous body blows.
Ali was visibly tired after the sixth round, and though he put together some flurries of punches after that round, he was unable to keep the pace he had set in the first third of the fight. At 1 minute and 59 seconds into round eight, following his clean left hook to Ali's right jaw, Frazier grabbed Ali's wrists and swung Ali into the center of the ring; however, Ali immediately grabbed Frazier again until they were once again separated by Mercante.
Frazier caught Ali with a left hook at nine seconds into round 11. A fraction of a second later, slipping on water in Frazier's corner, Ali fell with both gloves and his right knee to the canvas. Mercante stepped between Ali and Frazier, separating them as Ali rose. Mercante wiped Ali's gloves and waved "no knockdown." At 18 seconds into round 11, Mercante signaled the fighters to engage once again. Round 11 wound down with Frazier staggering Ali with a left hook. Ali stumbled and grabbed at Frazier to keep his balance and finally stumbled back first to the ropes before bouncing forward again to Frazier and grabbing on to Frazier until the fighters were separated by Mercante at 2:55 into the round.
Heading into Round 15, Frazier held the thinnest of leads on the judges scorecards (7–6–1, 10–4–0, and 8–6–0); so thin that, were he to lose the final round, he could still win, but only be by a single point. To be sure, Frazier closed convincingly. Early in round 15, Frazier landed a left hook that put Ali on the canvas. Ali, his jaw swollen noticeably, got up at the count of four, and managed to stay on his feet for the rest of the round despite several terrific blows from Frazier. A few minutes later the judges made it official: Frazier had retained the title with a unanimous decision, dealing Ali his first professional loss.

Daniel Jones Looking Good for NY Giants Eli





Daniel Jones


Tampa Bay Bucaneers Matt Gay misses chance to beat the New York Giants as rookie quarterback Daniel Jones shines, leading the Giants to their first win of the 2019 NFL Season. Jones looked sharp running for 2 touchdowns and passing for two more.

Late in the game, the Giants had a 4th down and 5 to go, when Daniel Jones ran for his second touchdown to tie the game at 31 points. The Giants made the extra point kick to take the lead 32 to 31 .. The Bucaneers got the ball back with 1: 16 left in the game, moved the ball down the field, setting up Matt Gay with a 32 yard field-goal attempt with just seconds left in the game.  Gay missed the field-goal attempt, and Daniel Jones and the New York Giants win their first game of the season. Yeah Daniel, yeah Giants.

Star runningback Saquon Barkley was injured early in the 2nd half and left the game with a ankle injury. Naturally all Giant Fans are wishing Saquon a quick and speedy recovery and hoping that his injury is a minor one. We want Saquon back.

Napoleon Favorite Pollo Marengo Recipe





NAPOLEON BONAPARTE

And His FAVORITE DISH

POLLO MARENGO


Pollo Marengo is a dish that was created by Napoleon Bonaparte 's Chef (Dunand) after Napoleon defeated the Austrian Army at The Battle of Marengo in Piedmont, Italy. It is said the Napoleon was hungry and his chef had to forage for food-stuffs to make a meal for Napoleon. The Chefs assistansts came back with a Chicken, Crayfish, and Eggs, and so the chef went to work. The dish he created, of which Napoleon was totally enamored with is known as Pollo Marengo after the town where the battle was fought.

Pollo Marengo is a dish that was popular in the 1950s and 60s, but has not been popular for many years now, though I don't know why, it's absolutely wonderful. There's a great recipe for Pollo Marengo and a lot of other tasty dishes in Segreto Italiano by Best Selling Italian Cookbook Author Daniel Bellino Zwicke.

If you've never had the dish, it's high-time you do. Try it!
