    Colorado Rapids Thugcast: Episode 64

    in Soccer

    Well, this show was supposed to be the glorious return of the Colorado Rapids Thugcast, previewing the 2015 season for the Burgundy Boys. Apparently that might not be happening, though. So... hey, let's talk about the MLS CBA battle between the players and the owners for a while as well! I'm sure Bulldog Ben and myself will find plenty to talk about, unless we've lost our touch or something. (Something tells me we probably haven't. You and I both know that the two of us can talk for hours.)

    Black Economics In Grand Rapids Michigan with CEO Jamiel Robinson

    in Business

    For all of its growth in recent years, Grand Rapids still has a long way to go to make itself more economically friendly for African-Americans.  Of the 52 largest cities in America, Grand Rapids ranks 51st, beating out Milwaukee, which was ranks at the bottom.


    Grand Rapids is home to about 40,000 African-Americans, who make up between 20 percent and 21 percent of the population, Robinson said the fact that the city has such a small population of African-Americans compared to other cities on the list might have led to the lower ranking. He also believes Grand Rapids received a low economic ranking, because of the city’s history of institutional racism, which eventually led to a system of hyper-segregation.

    Lewis Hamilton Wins the Big Bad Battle in Bahrain at the Formula One Grand Prix

    in News

    There was plenty of drama when the lights went down at the Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain.  The night race started with Mercedes pole sitter and champion, Lewis Hamilton out front.  Hamilton was followed by Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and teammate, Kimi Raikkonen, who worked together to block Mercedes second driver, Nico Rosberg, from advancing from third to second, by pushing him back to fourth.  A determined Rosberg was not going to settle for third or fourth, so, in lap nine, Rosberg overtook Raikkonen and Vettel to claim second, while Hamilton remained the leader of the pack.


    In lap 35 when Rosberg emerged from a pit stop, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel leap frogged and got out in front, but could not stay there. Meanwhile, both Toro Rosso drivers Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz Jr. were retired.


    By lap 47, it was Hamilton, Rosberg, Raikkonen, Bottas and Vettel in the top five.  Going into the final 7 laps, there was a fierce battle between Nico Rosberg and Kimi Raikkonen for second. Moving into lap 56 Raikkonen overtook Rosberg and claimed second, pushing Rosberg into third.  On the podium after the race, Raikkonen was disappointed that he had to settle for second, while fans wondered out loud if he was deluding himself into thinking he could have caught up with, and overtaken Hamilton, in the unstoppable Mercedes power unit.


    Crossing the finish line after the top three was Valtteri Bottas in fourth, Sebastian Vettel fifth, and Daniel Ricciardo who, barely made it across the finish line amidst a huge cloud of smoke bellowing from the back of his car. 


    Late Breaking News: The F1 race in Monza may be hanging in the wings. Like Germany, Monza has money problems.  The German automotive industry VW-Audi, did a study that showed tremendous support for an Audi F1 team, but, they dislike Bernie Egglestone so much, they refused to enter F1 as long as he is in control.
