This date in the MLB - May 27, 1968 Major league baseball decides to expand outside the confines of the United States when the National League announces the addition to Montreal to the circuit. San Diego is also awarded an expansion team. In 1960, Montreal lost its International League team, the Montreal Royals, a Dodgers affiliate, when the parent team chose to locate its main farm team closer to its new home in L.A. The move to get a new team for Montreal was the result of a seven-year-long effort led by Gerry Snyder, who at the time was the member from the district of Snowdon on Montreal City Council. Snyder was a high-profile figure in Montreal during the 1960s and 1970s. In addition to representing Snowdon on council from 1957 to 1982, Snyder chaired the city's Executive Committee during the 1960s, served as Mayor Jean Drapeau's primary liaison to the English-speaking community, and was instrumental in bringing both the 1976 Summer Olympic Games and the Formula One Grand Prix of Canada to the city.

“There can be distractions, but if you're isolated from the heart of the Games, the Olympics become just another competition.” Mary Lou Retton (American gymnast, 1984 Summer Olympic Games)
Winter Olympic Games. The Winter Olympic Games is a major international sporting event that occurs once every four years. The first celebration of the Winter Olympics was held in Chamonix, France, in 1924. The original sports were alpine and cross-country skiing, figure skating, ice hockey, Nordic combined, ski jumping and speed skating. The Games were held every four years from 1924 until 1936, after which they were interrupted by World War II. The Olympics resumed in 1948 and were celebrated every four years. The Winter and Summer Olympic Games were held in the same years until 1992, after a 1986 decision by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to place the Summer and Winter Games on separate four-year cycles in alternating even-numbered years. Because of the change, the next Winter Olympics after 1992 were in 1994. The Winter Games have evolved since their inception. Sports have been added and some of them, such as luge, short track speed skating and freestyle skiing, have earned a permanent spot ...

By American300 Public Affairs - 2/4/2014 Thule Air Base, Greenland-   Located 750 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Thule Air Base represents the United States Armed Forces northern most base. With the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, taking place nearly 4,000 miles away, two former U.S. Olympians are traveling to America’s most remote military base to share the Olympic Spirit and their personal life stories.  Behind their effort is the Department of Defense office of Armed Forces Entertainment and the nonprofit, American300 Tours.  “I’ve made it a mission to share my personal Olympic story with troops,” says Dan Beery, whose USA mens 8 rowing team brought home gold and set an Olympic record during the 2004 Athens Summer Olympic Games. “My Olympic journey started because of a setback that ended my dreams of playing basketball in the NBA.

So I can say this because I am Filipino but it's a bit disheartening to see that my people will make a huge deal about Miss Universe (including me) but when we have an athlete that is competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics, we do not have any media on Philippine television nor any financial support for him. Yet we make a huge deal about a the Azkals Soccer Team (Philipping National Soccer Team) or the Rugby Volcanoes that didn't make it to the world cup or a Philippine Basket Ball team that never qualified for the Summer Olympic Games. There's a bit of hypocrisy in "Pinoy Pride" when we Filipinos can't support our first ever male figure skater at the Olympics. Seems like we don't have our "pride" priorities straight. Oh let it be an Australian "half" pinoy competing in mud wrestling and you got bill boards and commercial, media tours all over the Philippines.
Towards the end of my visit to Tanzania I had the privilege of meeting Zakayo Malekwa, his family (which included 18 at the moment), and some of the amazing young men and women who have been discipled by him. Zakayo, or "Pastor Zak", as he is better known, competed in the men's javelin throw for Tanzania at three consecutive Summer Olympic games in the 1980's. He was received scholarships and his university and Bible college education in Texas. Read more about this special man, his wife, and their ministry at
I attended events at two summer Olympic games; Montreal in 1976 with my folks and LA in 1984 with Greg. Once in a lifetime opportunity, twice! I really enjoyed getting caught up in the experience, environment and spectacle that is the Olympics. Only drawback - as we shuttled to and from various events we missed the televised coverage of some events. Granted, in 1976 and 1984 there were not as many options for viewing and there was not 24x7 coverage. Winter Games were held only two years apart, in 1992 & 1994, to allow us to enjoy the games every two years, alternating summer and winter.
A little Black History Month fact about the 1936 Berlin Summer Olympic Games, "Hitler had a certain time to come to the stadium and a certain time to leave." "It happened he had to leave before the victory ceremony after the 100 meters. But before he left I was on my way to a broadcast and passed near his box. He waved at me and I waved back. I think it was bad taste to criticize the 'man of the hour' in another country." Jesse Owens. "Hitler didn't snub me – it was FDR who snubbed me. The president [F.D. Roosevelt] didn't even send me a telegram." Jesse Owens, From the book 'Triumph'

Something trivial about Australia's national anthem. If Australia won a Gold Medal at the Summer Olympic Games in Montreal in 1976, the anthem that would have played is. Waltzing Matilda. But it didn't. Imagine trying to explain a national anthem about a guy who steals a sheep and kills himself to avoid being arrested. (And Matilda is not a person, it is his swag). Advance Australia Fair was not the official anthem for another decade.

There is a group of people trying to get the 2024 Summer Olympic Games held in Boston.

It took Boston 30 years to build a couple miles of tunnel and you think they can handle an Olympics?

NBC's Maria Sharapova Isn't Going to Talk About LGBT People As part of NBC's Olympics coverage, the tennis star is assigned to share stories about how beautiful it is to live in Russia, where she's from. January the 18th, 2014. BY LUCAS GRINDLEY Source: In her NBC reports about how great it is to live in Sochi, don't ask Maria Sharapova to mention what it's like for LGBT people there. "I have discussed the issue a couple of times," she says, according to NDTV Sports, adding she's "said everything I wanted to say." The four-time tennis Grand Slam champion grew up in Sochi and was the flag bearer for Russia in the last summer Olympic Games in London. "I'm going to be showcasing the city of Sochi to a worldwide audience, and we will be doing a few segments." This is exactly the problem LGBT activists have with the Olympics being held in Sochi while Russia enforces a new *** propaganda" law, and while a proposed law is on deck that would remove children from their homes if parents are LGBT.

BLACK HISTORY ALL DAY EVERY DAY! First African Americans in the Olympics With the 2012 Olympics ready to come to an end, I would like to celebrate those African Americans who have set the stage for Gabby, Serena, Cullen, and all the brothers and sisters who have participated in this year’s Summer Olympic Games. When you think of the African American legacy in Olympic history, names such as Jesse Owens, Wilma Rudolph, and Bob Beamon come to mind. Even those athletes of great accomplishments were preceded by athletes whose names are seldom heard. So, I would like to bring those great people and their accomplishments back into the light. Louise Stokes and Tydia Pickett were the 1st African American women to be part of a USA Olympic Team. Both ladies qualified for the 1932 team for the Los Angeles Olympics. Neither lady was allowed to participate on the track because of the color of their skin, even though the games were held in their own country. Tydia Pickett also qualified in the 1936 Olympics in Berl .. ...

With QM just around the corner I thought it would be a good time to share a story I read In Joel Olstein's recent book Break Out! "Bill Havens, a rower who had been favored to win at least one gold medal in the 1924 Summer Olympic games in Paris, France. But his wife became pregnant, and her due date was at the exact time as the Olympic games. He missed the Olympics, but he was there when his son Frank, was born. As the years passed, the father and son grew close. In 1952 Frank Haven's qualified for the summer Olympics in Helsinki, Finland. He went over and competed. One day, Bill Havens received a telegram. It said "Dear Dad, thanks for waiting around for me to be born. I'm coming home 28 years later with your Olympic gold medal." Frank won the gold medal. Then he returned home and presented to his father, after so many years of thinking it would never happen." Dreams always have the ability to come true, often greater than what we originally imagined. Keep your focus and always remember your pot ...

The carcinogenic assault from grilling and driving - New Compounds Discovered That Are Hundreds of Times More Mutagenic Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered novel compounds produced by certain types of chemical reactions -- such as those found in vehicle exhaust or grilling meat -- that are hundreds of times more mutagenic than their parent compounds which are known carcinogens. These compounds were not previously known to exist, and raise additional concerns about the health impacts of heavily-polluted urban air or dietary exposure. It's not yet been determined in what level the compounds might be present, and no health standards now exist for them. The findings were published in December in Environmental Science and Technology, a professional journal. The compounds were identified in laboratory experiments that mimic the type of conditions which might be found from the combustion and exhaust in cars and trucks, or the grilling of meat over a flame. "Some of the compounds that we've di ...
