Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate By Anna LucasShortly after the calendar turns from 2020 to 2021, two of the most significant and longest-running events of the North American sporting year will be held on successive weekends in Florida. And both of them are being contested barely over an hour’s drive from Apopka.Super Bowl 55 for the championship of the National Football League is set for February 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The Super Bowl is annually the No. 1 sports betting day in North America and online betting sites like the Bovada sportsbook will be taking plenty of action on the game that day.Exactly seven days later on February 14, the world’s leading stock car drivers will be revving up their engines and heading for the start/finish line of the Daytona 500. Often referred to as America’s race, or the Super Bowl of stock car racing, the Daytona 500 annually launches the NASCAR season. Americans love NASCAR, so what better day to get the 2021 campaign underway than Valentine’s Day?Florida Is SuperNo state has played host to more Super Bowl games than the Sunshine State. The Super Bowl wasn’t born in Florida – the first game in 1967 was played in Los Angeles – but Florida soon became the go-to site for the NFL’s big game.The second Super Bowl was held at Miami’s Orange Bowl. The Green Bay Packers dumped the Oakland Raiders 33-14 in what was the final game for the legendary Vince Lombardi as coach of the Packers. The trophy that goes to the Super Bowl champions is named the Lombardi Trophy in his honor.“Orange Bowl: Virginia Tech Football v.

Super Bowl III was also at the Orange Bowl, marking the first and only time in the game’s history that the same stadium hosted successive Super Bowls. And what a game it was. Led by Joe Namath, who guaranteed victory, the upstart New York Jets, 18-point underdogs, upset the Baltimore Colts 16-7.Two years later, again in Miami, the Colts were back and this time, they beat the Dallas Cowboys 16-13.In total, Miami has played host to a record 13 Super Bowl games, most recently in 2020. Tampa, this year’s host city, held its first Super Bowl in 1984. This will be the fifth game held in Tampa, which puts the city fourth in terms of the most Super Bowl games hosted.Add in Jacksonville’s one Super Bowl and Florida will have played host to a record 16 Super Bowl games by the end of this season. California (12 games) is second on the list.History Could Be MadeThe Miami Dolphins were the first team to play in three Super Bowl games in succession and in 1973, became the first Florida-based NFL team to be Super Bowl champions. The Dolphins own a pair of Super Bowl victories. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are among four teams that are unbeaten in Super Bowl play. The Bucs won their lone appearance in the game, beating the Raiders 48-21 in 2003.In the course of 54 Super Bowl games, no team has ever played the game in their home stadium. Minnesota came close in 2018, when the game was slated for their U.S. Bank Stadium. That year, the Minnesota Vikings lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.Could history be made in Tampa in 2021? In the offseason, the Buccaneers recruited six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady. They are contenders to make the NFC playoffs, and perhaps win their way to a chance to play for the title on their home turf.America’s RaceThe inaugural Daytona 500 was held in 1959, the year that Daytona International Speedway opened. Since 1982, NASCAR has established it as the season-opening race of the Cup series.This will be the ninth time that the race will take place on Valentine’s Day. All eyes will be on Denny Hamlin this season. He won the race in 2019 and again in 2020, joining Sterling Marlin (1994-95), Cale Yarborough (1983-84), and Richard Petty (1973-74) as the only drivers to win the race in successive years.No one has ever finished as the Daytona 500 winner in three successive races. Hamlin also won in 2016. Only Petty (seven) and Yarborough (four) have won the race more often than him. Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!

Steel City Sports World treats city to ‘greatest show on earth’

first_imgLuther “The Prophet” Dupree, host of Steel City Sports World, and Co-host Kelly “Freight Train” Russell have been shining a light on youth athletics since 1998.Unless you’ve been living in Pittsburgh in recent years, you’ve probably never heard of Steel City Sports World. What really makes this show, though, isn’t the interaction with their guests but with their callers, who are lining up on hold at the switchboard well before airtime.“The reason we started Steel City Sports World was to give recognition and honor to high school kids who were doing the right thing,” said Dupree. “Especially to the kids in the city who don’t get the love that they should.”Dupree is one of the community’s greatest ambassadors who helped set the highest possible standards in sports talk and has a positive image.As the Steel City Beauties Models lined up, having a look that causes men to salivate, Dupree and Russell announced their crown jewel titles.Steel City Sports World’s Defensive MVP went to Gateway’s strong safety Nolan Toran. Toran and Gateway have been knocking on the door of a WPIAL championship for years. Toran, who is being recruited by Illinois and Indiana, is one of the most consistent defensive backs in the WPIAL; he’s always in condition and always brings his A-Game to the field.“I try to fulfill every aspect of being a leader,” said Toran. “As a group we are known as S4G which means Stand For God.”Steel City Sports World’s Offensive MVP went to Central Catholic running back Damian Jones-Moore. Jones-Moore’s drive to be number one is remarkable. His determination to achieve his goals is not just reserved for the football field.“I want to thank my midget league coach Ronnell Stackhouse, my high school coaches, my parents and my offensive line, because they are the reason for my success,” said Jones-Moore. “I work just as hard on my academics as I do training for football. I plan on having a double major when I get to college.”Ask Thomas Woodson to name the team that he would love to play again from last season and he quickly wipes the grin off his face. “I want Central Catholic again,” the Gateway super sophomore quarterback and safety says. “We had them on the ropes in the playoffs and we felt that we let one get away.”West Allegheny’s Mike Caputo, who plans to attend the University of Wisconsin next fall, admits that his work ethic sets him apart. “Hard work succeeds over talent when talent fails to work hard. I go by that motto,” said Caputo. “I got to work on everything and the sky is the limit.”Hopewell’s Rushel Shell has established himself as one of the very best running backs in the country since he stepped on the gridiron in 9th grade. Shell has a chance to topple 9,000 career rushing yards. Shell, a junior, rushed for 2,510 yards with 27 touchdowns in 2010.He has 6,766 career yards and needs 981 to break Mike Vernillo’s WPIAL record.“Everything that I do is magnified, so I have to make the right choices,” said Shell. “I work on my stamina with my strength and conditioning coach. We don’t lift heavy, we do a lot of reps and work on getting cuts. I pattern myself after Adrian Peterson (Minnesota Vikings) because he is strong and fast.”Many shows are pretty good, but most lack the commitment to youth sports.True dominance is King HenryVIII, Serena Williams, Michael Jordan, Gateway High School and Steel City Sports World.There’s going to be a mighty force blowing over the city of Pittsburgh this year. Steel City Sports World is planning to dominate and conquer. Steel City Sports World is going to cover high school athletics better than any other show and will not take any prisoners. This team will not rest until they are the undisputed number one show. In the words of Lenny Kravitz, “it ain’t over till it’s over.” STEEL CITY STARS—Front Row: Members of the Pittsburgh Force Women’s professional football team. 2nd Row: Model Ashley Mittenzwey, Davantae Butler (Gateway), Model Ashley Kennedy, Model Janea Barlow, Damian Jones-Moore (Offensive MVP, Central Catholic), Model Bella’lisa Smith and Smokin’ Jim Frazier. 3rd Row: Daniel Bradley (Gateway), Haakin Oliver (Gateway), Thomas Woodson (Gateway), Nolan Toran (Defensive MVP, Gateway) and Dillon Buechel (Montour). What do you get when you throw these guys and gals listed here together in front of a camera: Damian Jones-Moore (Central Catholic), Daniel Bradley (Gateway), Rushel Shell (Hopewell), Nolan Toran (Gateway), Jones (Central Catholic), Davantae Butler (Gateway), Mike Caputo (West Allegheny), Thomas Woodson (Gateway), Dillon Buechel (Montour), Haakim Oliver (Gateway), Greg McGhee (Perry), Steel City Models and the Pittsburgh Force Women’s Professional football team? You have the makings of the greatest show on earth. For 10 years running, Steel City Sports World has given awards to the top high school football players in the area.last_img read more

American Davis arrives for DeGale clash

first_imgDyah Davis has arrived in Britain ahead of his clash with James DeGale and insisted he will “take care of business” in Saturday’s fight.Harlesden’s 2008 Olympic champion will be the strong favourite when he defends his WBC Silver super-middleweight title against the experienced American at Glow, Bluewater.A victory would keep DeGale in line for a world title shot but Davis, a former North American Boxing Federation champion and the son of 1976 Olympic champion Howard Davis Jr, believes he can pull off an upset.“It’s great to finally be here. The travel was a little abusive, but we’re here and ready to take care of business,” he said.“I’m most definitely pleased to be here and I’m really looking forward to the fight.“The gameplan hasn’t changed and is exactly what we’ve been practicing and I can’t wait.”Davis, 32, was beaten in 10 rounds last year by Sakio Bika, who has since become the WBC’s world champion and has been touted as a possible future opponent for DeGale.Tickets for DeGale v Davis at Glow, Bluewater, on 16 November are priced from £40 and are available from the Hennessy Sports Box Office on 01925 755 222, at http://hennessy.ticketline.co.uk or alternatively by contacting Tickeline.co.uk or by phone on 0844 888 4402 or via Ticketmaster.co.uk or by phone on 0844 847 2500.  See also:DeGale wants Groves clash at Loftus RoadDeGale to take on American DavisDeGale out to prove a point against DavisInjury-free DeGale determined to impressDeGale given warning by opponent Davis Confident DeGale predicts ‘explosive’ winDeGale must prove he is ready for world title shot, says promoterTrainer says DeGale is ‘a million per cent ready’ for world title challengeDeGale weighs in ahead of Davis clashUnderdog Davis is determined to cause an upset against DeGaleJames DeGale v Dyah Davis as it 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

The Hidden Stories Behind Weird Post-Production Terms

first_imgEver wonder where some of those strange post-production terms came from? Here are some origin stories you might not know.The industry is full of strange and confusing terms that make sense only to those who use them everyday. Have you ever wondered where all these strange terms came from? Let’s take a behind-the-scenes look at those weird post-production terms.KeyframesIn modern animation applications, a keyframe designates a value at a certain point in time. These modern day applications can interpret the data between keyframes so you don’t have to. This is called tweening, and it’s a recent advance in technology.Image from 3D MercuryIn the golden days of animation, every frame had to drawn by hand — but it wasn’t the job of lead animators to draw every frame. Instead, more experienced animators would draw only the ‘key’ frames in a scene and more inexperienced animators called Inbetweeners would create the drawings between the key frames. For more information regarding early animation techniques, I highly recommend checking out The Illusion of Life by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston.MasksIn post-production, masking is the process of designating a portion of the frame to not be affected by a given effect. In Photoshop you might use a mask to only blur out a background and not your subject. In After Effects, a mask can be used to help with compositing 3D elements. But the history of masks goes back much further than Photoshop. In fact, the term is derived from physical masks which literally block portions of your face.Masking has long been used in fine arts as a way to shield portions of a canvas from being affected. In fact, masking tape derived because it was used to mask out certain objects that weren’t meant to be painted. Today masking has evolved to become an essential part of a digital artists workflow and it all started with physical art.FeatheringIn modern software, feathering is essentially the smoothing out of edges. But why is it called feathering?It actually plays homage to a classic painting technique in which artists would use feathers to smooth out a transition between two colors. Feathering was also used by early photo editors as a way to smooth out ink. Even in modern home painting, some people use feather dusters as a way to smooth out paint color transitions. Feathering continues to be an essential process for editors and motion graphic designers alike.Matte/Matte PaintingIn film and photography, a matte is reference footage used to composite a foreground onto a background. While the history of mattes in film is quite dense, the term matte first originated from the early set extension process known as matte painting. These early matte paintings were scenes painted on glass using, you guessed it, matte paint.Over the years, mattes would evolve to become modern-day color keying, but digital matte painting continues to be a process used in contemporary films. For more info on the history of matte painting, check out this fantastic video created by John Hess of Filmmaker I.Q. RotoscopingThe original patent for a rotoscope, invented by Max FleischerRotoscoping is essentially cutting an object or subject out of a scene one frame at a time by hand. While the process is easier for modern filmmakers, it’s still very tedious.In the early days of film, an artist would use a rotoscope to project a frame onto glass. The artist would then go in and trace the subject by hand. While the process was traditionally used for cartoons, it has transitioned over time to be used mainly for VFX work.Know any other post-production origin stories?
