Sharks - 5-13-16 - Rich Yee
A picture might be worth a 1,000 words, but this image only needs two: Sharks win! After shutting out the Nashville Predators 5-0 in Game 7 of the NHL Western Conference Second Round on Thursday night at the SAP Center, San Jose moved on to the Western Conference Final for the first time since 2011, versus the
St. Louis Blues. Photo by Rich Yee.

Sharks - 5-13-16 - Rich Yee
At the conclusion of a contest, the time-honored practice of meeting your fierce opponent of a moment ago continues in hockey with a display of sportsmanship after Nashville's crushing loss in Game 7 to the Sharks, 5-0. In the NHL, the post-game handshake is only done in the playoffs after the series is won by one team. Above, left to right, are Predators forward Mike Fisher (No. 12) and Sharks forward Tomas Hertl (No. 48); Predators defenseman Barret Jackman (No. 5) and Sharks defenseman Roman Polak (No. 46) and Sharks forward Dainius Zubrus (No. 9).

5-5-16 - Rich Yee
San Francisco Giants pitcher Matt Cain continued to turn back his shaky start to the 2016 season with another strong outing, throwing 111 pitches over seven innings and holding the Arizona Diamondbacks to one run. The Giants would break a 1-1 tie in the ninth, paving the way to a 2-1 victory and a four-game sweep of host Arizona.  Above, Cain is seen in a recent outing at AT&T Park against the Colorado Rockies.

The All Pro Wrestling matches in Daly City drew a packed house on Friday night to watch  Jody Kristofferson (son of singer/songwriter Kris Kristofferson) retain his World Heavyweight Championship title in a wild Fatal 4-Way Match.  Other participants in the brawl included Dylan Drake, JR Kratos and MVP. (It is believed no one was bitten.) Afterwards Mr. Kristofferson (aka War Pig and Big Country) celebrated with a copy of the Ultimate Sports Guide!  Photo by promoter Jim Fitzpatrick.

RAAM - 5-16-16
Missed by that much! Cyclists competing in the solo categories of the famed Race Across America have just 12 days to pedal 3,000 miles from Oceanside, Calif., to Annapolis, Md. Each year a number of riders fail to make it before the cut-off time. How disappointing it must be to arrive past the deadline and see that the finish line is being dismantled--or worse yet--is already gone!  Photo credit: Vic Armijo / RAAM Media.

Campanelli started in 1972, when he arrived at a small teachers college known as Madison College in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The name was changed to James Madison University and Lou built the basketball program into national prominence before coming to Cal and returning the Bears program into a Pac-10 winner.
 
Co-author Dave Newhouse will be making the following appearances: Thursday, May 19, Barnes & Noble, Emeryville, 7 p.m., with co-author Lou Campanelli; Friday, June 10, Berkeley Breakfast Club, 7 a.m. (general author talk); Saturday, June 25, Castro Valley Library, 2 p.m. (general author talk); Saturday, July 23, Montclair Library, Oakland, 3 p.m. (general author talk).

Dare to Dream
Dare to Dream: How James Madison University Became Coed and Shocked the World

By Lou Campanelli
and Dave Newhouse

Former Cal basketball coach Lou Campanelli and local veteran sportswriter Dave Newhouse have co-authored a book chronicling Campanelli's accomplishments as a successful collegiate basketball coach. Campanelli started in 1972, when he arrived at a small teachers college known as Madison College in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The name was changed to James Madison University and Lou built the basketball program into national prominence before coming to Cal and returning the Bears program into a Pac-10 winner.
 
Co-author Dave Newhouse will be making the following appearances: Thursday, May 19, Barnes & Noble, Emeryville, 7 p.m., with co-author Lou Campanelli; Friday, June 10, Berkeley Breakfast Club, 7 a.m. (general author talk); Saturday, June 25, Castro Valley Library, 2 p.m. (general author talk); Saturday, July 23, Montclair Library, Oakland, 3 p.m. (general author talk).

The book can be ordered at Amazon.com and at bookstores.
