Three matadors were gored at a fight on Tuesday, during the month long ‘World Series of bullfighting’ in Madrid. With no one left to challenge the bulls, festivities were cancelled for the day. The first time that’s happened in 35 Years.
“The northwest Texas towns of Turkey and Crowell are separated by about 60 miles as the crow flies; they’re places you’re most likely to stumble upon only if taking a few wrong turns between Wichita Falls and Lubbock, or Amarillo. But in December of 2013, the two tiny towns became leading actors in the final acts of the University Interscholastic League’s six-man football season, breaking through to meet in the semi-finals of a 32-team playoff bracket. Developed in the 1930s to give smaller high schools an opportunity at top-level competition, six-man thrives in the rural districts of a few football-crazy states—nowhere more prevalently than in Texas. Filmmaker Nicholas Strini followed the strands of the Lone Star’s deep gridiron tradition to its incredible small-scale local versions, where the populations may be dwindling, but passions remain as grand as the horizon.”

For more than 100 years, baseball looked pretty much the same from the grandstands. There were three players spread in the outfield, a pitcher on the mound, a catcher behind the plate, and four infielders neatly aligned, two on each side of second base. But a radical reworking of defensive principles is reshaping the way the old game is played, and even the way it looks. If you cannot find the third baseman, he might be the one standing in shallow right field. The second baseman? That’s him on the other side of the diamond, next to the shortstop.
