UA Track

UA track and field have had their fair share of success recently. Senior Pete Lauderdale II, junior Blake Eichler, sophomore Bryce Houston and sophomore Miles Parish broke a school record in the men’s 4×400-meter relay with a time of 3:04.51. The previous record, set on June 5, 1981, was 3:05.81.

American Pharoah

For the first time since 1978, there is a Triple Crown winner after American Pharoah put the bow on a milestone victory at Belmont Stakes on Saturday. This accomplishment is especially sweet for the UA considering the trainer of American Pharoah is UA alumnus Bob Baffert.

Riley Curry

Stephen Curry is on his way to his first NBA championship to go along with earning NBA’s Most Valuable Player award. As of recent, the spotlight has been on Curry’s rambunctious two-year-old daughter, Riley Curry. From interrupting her dad to climbing underneath the table in the post-game press conference, Riley Curry has reporters more interested in what she’s doing rather than hearing what pops has to say. LeBron James and Stephen Curry might not be the most talked about people in the NBA Finals this season.

James Harden

Nobody in NBA Playoffs has ever committed more than 12 turnovers in a basketball game before game five in the NBA Western Conference finals. Houston Rockets guard James Harden has established himself as an elite player in the NBA, especially after facing elimination in game four as the former ASU Sun Devil scored a career playoff-high of 45 points. Harden committed 13 turnovers in the final game of his season. It is believed that Bay Area hip-hop artist Lil B put a curse on Harden after the rapper claimed that Harden took his signature stirring the pot dance. Regardless of whether he was cursed, 13 turnovers is horrific. To put the cherry on top, Stephen Curry was selected over Harden for the cover of “NBA 2K16.”

FIFA

Senior officials of FIFA were arrested on corruption charges, and there is a current investigation on the voting process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup. Sepp Blatter has stepped down as president of FIFA. Vice President Jeffrey Webb, who was favored to succeed Blatter, was arrested in the current investigation. FIFA is under fire — who knows what these investigators will pull out of this.

Johnny Manziel

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is fresh out of rehab and competing for a starting position with Josh McCown. It seems as if Manziel can’t catch a break, as the second-year player was reportedly harassed at the AT&T Byron Nelson golf tournament in Irving, Texas. An 18-year-old autograph seeker badgered Manziel, causing him to throw a water bottle at the seeker. Manziel is staying away from the party life, but once again he is caught in the crosshairs of a situation that just adds more to the “Money Manziel” antics.
