GoldenStateWarriorsFor Your Viewing Pleasure


Draymond - 6-6-16 - Rich Yee
On Sunday evening, the Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green imposed his will on the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the 2016 NBA Finals, contributing mightily in a 110-77 dismantling of their foe. The two-time, first team All-NBA defender scored 28 points, with Stephen Curry adding 18 and Klay Thompson netting 17, and the rout was on. The Warriors have taken a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series and the relative ease with which they have won suggests it may be time to start thinking parade. The series switches to Cleveland for Game 3 on Wednesday evening at 6 p.m., followed by Game 4 on Friday evening at 6 p.m. Game 5 would return to Oracle Arena on Monday at 6 p.m. (Above, Green in action versus the Miami Heat  earlier this year.)

Ali - 6-6-16
"I've wrestled with alligators, I've tussled with a whale. I done handcuffed lightning, and thrown thunder in jail. You know I'm bad. Just last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick. I'm so mean, I make medicine sick."

Pence is not expected back until mid-August and his .298 batting average, tied with infielder Brandon Belt for the team lead, will be sorely missed. Photo by Rich Yee.

RAAM
RAAM - 6-6-16
Can another rookie win the Race Across America? When the 35th Race Across America (RAAM) starts on June 14 there will be no returning winners in the solo male category but there will be four previous second-place riders all vying for their first win. And then there's the rookie Ralph "Dizzy" Diseviscourt (Luxembourg) that many fans are calling a potential winner, partially because he won last year's Tourtour  (Switzerland's 1000-kilometer answer to RAAM), just as Reto Schoch (Switzerland) did in 2011 before winning RAAM 2012 as a rookie and just as Severin Zotter (Austria) did in 2014 before winning RAAM 2015 as a rookie. Diseviscourt remarked, "And Zotter finished third in the Race Across the Alps. And me too. I don't know if that's a good omen or not." Photo by Vic Armijo / RAAM Media.

Sports, Energy, Consciousness Sports Festival Starts Friday

The inaugural SEC Sports Festival kicks off Friday through Sunday, June 10-12, to explore the future of athletic performance, coaching and training. The celebration, taking place at Dominican University in San Rafael, will be highlighted by Michael Murphy, founder of Esalen Institute and Ken Wilbur, founder of Integral Institute, two of the leading figures in the integral movement combining body, mind, heart and soul as it relates to athletic abilities. These practices have been emerging at the highest levels of professional sports, by the likes of Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and basketball's legendary Phil Jackson.

Hands-on workshops and breakout sessions will be led by renowned experts in their field, including David Meggyesy, former NFL linebacker; Scott Ford, USPTA Elite Pro; Mike Spino, Ph.D., Olympic-level running coach; and Greg Warburton, M.S., Mental Training Coach, will examine such topics as "getting in the zone and staying there," "being present and mindful in competition," and "team chemistry and fan energy."
