Orlando Pride wanted to fill the Orlando Citrus Bowl

The Orlando Pride wanted to fill the Orlando Citrus Bowl. Not only did they want to fill it, they wanted it to be #FilledWithPride.

This was not some marketing gimmick. This was something more of a statement. Not just about Orlandos sudden and strong love affair with soccer. But also that this city was going to suppor a lot more than traditional mens sports. That this city was truly becoming a sports metropolis with something for everyone.

Fans in the supporters section chanted Our City, Our Pride! There was a small banner in support of U.S. Womens Soccer players Hope Solo Jersey bid for equal pay Equal Pay for Equal Play it read. There was no sense that this was anything more than a normal Saturday night soccer game.

A NWSL-record crowd of 23,403 fans filled the Orlando Citrus Bowl and the Orlando Pride gave them reason to celebrate. And celebrate again and celebrate again.

The first half was the fans introduction to the team as Orlando Pride pushed the pressure. The second half was about Alex Morgan and that offense as the Orlando Pride won their first game as a franchise 3-1 over the Houston Dash at the Orlando Citrus Bowl on Saturday.

In a span of about 15 minutes, the Orlando Pride sent the whole stadium into euphoria, putting on a clinic in goal scoring and team play, making good on several threats throughout the first half. Unlike the opener in Portland, Orlando looked much more connected and comfortable playing together.

Alex Morgan had a role in two of the goals, scoring her first goal of the season on some beautiful team play to wrap up the scoring on some beautiful touch passing from Jasmyne Spencer and Steph Catley Spencer used her great speed to get down the wing and left the ball off for Catley on the overlap. Catley brought the ball along the end line and slotted it to Morgan to complete Orlandos scoring.

The Pride dominated before then too. This goal merely a culmination of the celebration.

Morgan fired a shot in the box that ricocheted off Houston defender Andressa about a minute into the second half. Orlandos Lianne Sanderson then caught the Dash defense napping, firing in a direct free kick into the net while the defense seemed to be still setting itself up.

No matter how those goals went in or the incredible saves goalie Ashlyn Harris made, including one in the 19th minute on a one-v.-one with Houstons Janine Beckie the Orlando faithful were happy to celebrate this latest soccer accomplishment.

The Pride announced themselves to orlando, not that they really needed to. Orlando had already bought in to womens soccer Alex Morgan Jersey.

The crowd will undoubtedly die down for the teams second home game May 8. But it will not die down much. Orlando City still fills the stadium with 30,000 on most weekends even when they are not gunning for 60,000. It is not unrealistic for Orlando Pride to top 10,000 for its games moving forward.

The product is certainly entertaining enough to continue drawing fans in.

It is a new era for soccer in Orlando. For sports in Orlando once again. Several major professional womens teams have come through Orlando and fallen to the wayside currently the USSA Pride play National Pro Fastpitch Softball out of Disney, but the Orlando Miracle (WNBA) and Orlando Wahoos (Softball) have come and gone with hardly any notice. This one though has staying power. Alex Morgans star power presence certainly helps.

On this opening night, Orlando had plenty to be proud of. The Orlando Pride most of all. They put on a great game and a strong performance for their inaugural game.

Once again, early in the season, anything seems possible for this team.

New York Yankees feel like they need him in the lineup

NEW YORK -- As bad as Alex Rodriguez has been this April, the New York Yankees feel like they need him in the lineup.

A-Rod didn't make it to the end of the Yankees' 8-1 loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Rays, leaving early because of an oblique issue that required him to get an MRI exam. He was still a big focus on a team not getting many hits, even though he hasn't been contributing himself.

At least the Yanks still believe A-Rod can hit, which is more than you can say for a lot of the Yankees Masahiro Tanaka Jersey, particularly when the opposing pitcher throws with his left hand.

The Yankees were limited to one run again Sunday, and while Rays starter Drew Smyly is an impressive lefty, he really didn't do anything out of the ordinary to stifle the Yankees.

The Yankees have scored two runs or fewer in eight of the first 17 games this season. Going into Sunday, only the San Diego Padres and Philadelphia Phillies had been worse, with nine such games apiece Luis Severino Jersey. And in 12 of the first 17 games, the Yankees have been held to no more than three runs. Only the weak-hitting Rays and rebuilding Phillies have struggled more, each with 13 three-runs-or-fewer games.

Sunday's game felt just about over when Michael Pineda allowed two home runs and five runs total in the first inning. Pineda was his usual puzzling self, becoming the first Yankee pitcher ever with nine strikeouts and four homers allowed in the same game.

The bigger immediate issue, however, is the lineup, especially against lefties. The Yankees could face two more left-handers in the three games in Texas, although they'll avoid Cole Hamels, who was scratched from Monday's scheduled start because of a groin problem.

A lineup already struggling against lefties has now been without Aaron Hicks, who missed the past two games with a sore shoulder and whose return remains unknown. Then, two innings after Rodriguez drove in Sunday's only Yankee run with a double off Smyly, he left the game with what the team described as left oblique stiffness.

The double was Rodriguez's second hit in his past 19 at-bats, and just his eighth hit in 55 at-bats this season (a .145 average). But it was also a reminder of what he can still do -- at times.

"The last thing I saw was him hitting a missile off the wall," Chase Headley said. "We need him. He's a big threat in the middle of the lineup."

Manager Joe Girardi said similar things, expressing hope, if not belief, that A-Rod's oblique problem won't force him to the disabled list. The Yankees aren't loaded with possible replacements in Triple-A, although they did recently sign Nick Swisher to a minor league deal.

The Yankees need to figure out something, because it seems unlikely that their two- or three-run-a-day offense will be enough in Texas, Boston or Baltimore, the three stops on their trip that begins Monday.

They scored just 24 runs total in the just-finished nine-game homestand, and six of those came in Friday night's win over the Rays. They took two of three from the Rays after losing five of six to the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics, and left home in last place in the American League East.

"We're not swinging the bats like we're capable of, but we'll get this turned around," catcher Brian McCann said.

Perhaps they will, but it says a lot that they left the park hoping they haven't lost a guy who's hitting .145.

Pat Light will join the Boston Red Sox here in Houston

HOUSTON Pat Light will join the Boston Red Sox here in Houston today. He has been recalled from Pawtucket for his first major league stint.

Lefty Roenis Elias and righty Noe Ramirez have been optioned to Pawtucket. The Red Sox also activated Henry Owens who will make today's start.

The Boston Red Sox selected Pat Light 37th overall in the 2012 draft with the compensation pick they received for the Philadelphia Phillies signing closer Jonathan Papelbon.

After Light struggled as a starter Xander Bogaerts Jersey, the Sox converted him to a reliever in 2015. He hit 102 mph in Double-A Portland and 100 mph in Triple-A Pawtucket last year.

"Honestly, I think my best pitch is my splitter," Light said during spring training. "My fastball's already good. It (the splitter) is nice to have when you're coming out of the bullpen. It's something a lot of times guys haven't seen yet and it's tough to get timing down for that quickly. But the splitter has been my out-pitch since I started in the bullpen and it's been really helpful for me."

He has experienced some control issues as a reliever.

"His biggest thing is command and controlling his effort level," PawSox manager Kevin Boles told the Providence Journal this morning. "If he can get ahead with his fastball, it's amazing how much different the at-bat is."


Just 17 games into the 2016 schedule, the Red Sox have used 10 different relievers. Four of those relievers have an ERA over 4.90 two of whom only have made one appearance each (William Cuevas, Elias).

With Owens and Light added today, the Red Sox already have used every pitcher from 40-man roster on their major league roster except Brian Johnson and Williams Jerez, who is at Double-A Portland.

Who are some relievers not on the 40-man roster at Pawtucket who potentially could help out if added?

Anthony Varvaro is an option.

The 31-year-old Varvaro has experienced success in the major leagues with a 3.23 ERA in 166 outings (183 2/3 innings). He posted a 2.82 ERA in 73 1/3 innings during 2013 and a 2.63 ERA in 54 2/3 innings in 2014.

He settled for a minor league deal with the Red Sox after surgery for a tear in his right flexor tendon kept him out most of the 2015 season.

He has a 3.52 ERA (3 ER, 7.2 IP), 1.04 WHIP and nine strikeouts compared to two walks so far for the PawSox.

The righthander has been known as a reverse-split pitcher. Left-handed batters slashed just .149/.198/.284/.481 against him in 2014 and .207/.267/.281/.548 against him in 2013.

Jorge Marban is another option. The 27-year-old has a 0.96 ERA (1 R, 9.1 IP), 1.18 WHIP and .107 batting average against The problem is command. He has eight walks compared to six strikeouts.

Marban signed with Boston two offseasons ago after spending time pitching in Australia.

The PawSox also have 26-year-old Robby Scott. He has a 2.79 ERA (3 R, 9.2 IP), 1.03 WHIP, .167 batting average against and nine strikeouts compared to four walks.

The Red Sox also signed Wesley Wright to a minor league deal. The 31-year-old lefty has a 4.16 ERA in 371 career outings, four starts. He has a 1.35 ERA (1 R, 6.2 IP) so far.

Motorcycle Selling 101: How To Sell Your Damaged Motorcycle Fast And Make Money

Every motorcycle owner can and probably will at some time be faced with an unwanted situation like this what to do with a bike that is wrecked or just wont run anymore? This may happen to you, without your own fault or any bad intentions. Or maybe its just damaged, still running, but you don't have money or will to repair it. It may seem like a heap of bad luck, but you should be smart and take the best of the situation. Damaged motorcycle may seem like a junk to an untrained eye but you may still get good money from it. If you have a damaged bike but you're not willing to invest in it anymore and you're eager to make a quick and easy buck read on and find out how!

Before actually selling the bike or even attempting to do it, there is one crucial thing to be done you have to clearly establish that the bike is actually yours. Find all the documents and papers, even the ones you long forgot about. Open all the drawers and see whats in them. Once you do this, the paperwork part is pretty much done.

Be charitable

If you're not in a hurry for a quick buck, then this option might suit you best. It is always nice to give something you're not using to someone who may be in need of it. Not only will you get a nice, warm feeling of happiness and generosity but you can claim a tax deduction or even get a gratitude motorcycling T-shirt. Just be sure to first check if the organization you're donating to is a qualified one. You can easily do that online.

Sell it as it is

While you might be done with you ride someone else out there may still find the use of it. Your bike may be a rare model, interesting to someone for some weird and specific reason or it may simply become someone's restoration project. There are people out there who'll want to buy your damaged motorcycle and get it running again, be assured. The best way to find people like this is to search for them online. Motorcycle forums, bidding sites, you name it... Keep in mind that someone who wants to buy your damaged bike plans to bring it back to working condition, which means that they definitely know a thing or two about the matter, so you'll have to be honest with them since they'll easily assess the worth of your machine. A good thing to do in this situation is to have an exact estimate so you don't get persuaded into selling your bike for less than it actually worth's.


OK, maybe you have been too optimistic and now you finally see that your bike is in worse condition than you previously thought. You have tried selling it as it is yet found no one willing to purchase it. Don't despair; there are still some good options to be considered! Recycling is definitely one of them. Every bike is at least worth its own weight. Local junkyard is interested in metal parts and will pay for it pound by pound therefore, the heavier bike, the better! This will pour some cash in your pocket and you'll decrease you imprint on mother earth. Hey, a double win situation again! Have in mind however that you'll have to transport it on your own since junkyard will not pay or organize someone to tow it away. This may cost more than what you'd earn from recycling, so do your calculations. This may be a better option if you have a wrecked car.

Used and junk motorcycle buyers

This next one is possibly the best option for you, so I left it as a treat for the end. Hear me there are services out there that will tow away your motorcycle for free, no matter where its located and give you cash for it! You end up with a junkless front yard and some cash in your hands, completely easy and effortlessly. Apart from the fact that they will tow it away free of charge, the process is fast and simple you call them, they send an expert who assesses the value of your bike, he gives you an offer and if you accept it they tow it away! These companies will in most cases send someone over the same day and he or she will offer you more than a reasonable price for your damaged bike. Therefore, if you'd like to avoid all the hustle related to negotiating and transporting this is definitely the best option for you!

You see, you do have different options and now that you know their advantages and disadvantages choose the one that suits you best. Hope that this article helped you!

Winter tires vs. All season tires?

Owning a car has a lot of responsibilities that come with it, and in order to drive safely, and to be able to control your car without any trouble, you will need the right tires. However, you should not neglect the differences in type and size, because either can greatly influence how your car will behave on the road.

Winter tires vs. All season tires

Winter tire characteristics

Depending on where you live, car regulations might include that you have a set of winter tires to use when the colder months come in. Choosing the right winter tire will not be an easy task, because you have to take into consideration what the weather is like, and if it will be icy or not. After all, winter tires were designed to handle snow and slippery conditions better than ice, unless you are a professional drifter.

Using only summer tires

It is never a good idea to leave on your summer tires all year long, because you will not be able to swivel out of a sticky and slippery situation. Moreover, you need to be aware that if you get caught without winter tires during colder months, the fine can be high. After all, it is better to change your tires and be safe, because it is the only connection between your car and the road, and unless it is responsive, you will be in trouble.

Universal tires for all season

One of the comprisal choices you can make in regards to which ones to get is to go with all season tires. Though, be aware that they will perform somewhere in middle if you take into account season related ones. On the other hand though, you will not have to worry about whether or not your tires will be slippery. Bear in mind that if winter gets too tough, you should put on tire chains so that you do not slip off the road.

Selecting the right tire for your car

Before you head out and buy yourself a new set of tires, you need to make sure that you will get the right measurements, and that you do not neither too small nor too big ones. Moreover, if you browse online, you will be able to choose from a wide range of tires that can be fitted onto your car. Make sure that if you feel unsafe driving with all season tires to get two separate sets, just to be on the safe side.

Proper tire care and maintenance

Whether you get on type or the other, it is vital that you never mix them together, otherwise you will lose traction, and you might slide off the road. Moreover, you will have to break in your new tires when you get them, just as you would do with your shoes. Keep your tires in peak condition because they will be your only way to control your car, and if they are not functioning perfectly, you will have to look out for oncoming traffic.

Which one to choose in the end?

Generally, every type has its pros and cons, and, it would best to own two separate sets of tires, so that you can adjust to the road conditions better. Nonetheless, if you are trying to save some money, as tires can tend to be expensive, it is better to opt for an all season set. However, you need to make sure that you break in the new tires, and that you get a feel for them, so that you know how your car will react in any given situation.
