“He doesn’t want Kris profiting from his life anymore, so that’s why he won’t do it on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” a source said. Bruce is even thinking about making an announcement and possibly having a TV special that will clarify and document the truth about the ongoing transition.
“In Touch Weekly” a famous tabloid had a source come to them and talk more in depth about what’s really going on with Bruce. After many facial feminization procedures, it’s on to the next step for the 65 year old dad, “He’s tired of living a lie and wants to finally be himself. He has been taking hormones and will get his boobs done.”
He’s also thinking about getting his name changed in the new year.
It is not often that managers need to defend their world class players. However, there were a lot of questions about Robin van Persie’s form and fitness a few weeks ago. Fans and pundits thought the soccer player was finished. He looked slow, lethargic and out of form.
Fast forward three weeks and Van Persie looks to be at his very best again. He has scored four goals in his last three appearances, along with providing an assist. This is the kind of form United fans expect from Van Persie. His manager Louis van Gaal is delighted that the star striker is back in form.
Many fans like myself and my good friend Flavio Maluf questioned the reason why Van Gaal kept playing Van Persie. They thought he was playing the striker because of favoritism. After all, Van Persie was the Dutchman’s captain for the Netherlands at this summer’s World Cup.
Van Gaal can now point to the forward’s return to form as justification for his continued selection. The coach believes that Van Persie needed to play games in order to get out of his rut.
Robin van Persie was also helped by the injury sustained by Radamel Falcao. When he was playing badly, Falcao was on the treatment table. If Falcao had been fit, Van Gaal may have had no choice but to bench Van Persie.
It has been quite a week in the windy city. Both of Chicago’s baseball teams made transactions to improve their respective pitching staffs.
Things started off quietly when the Cubs re-signed free agent Jason Hammel who they had traded to the Oakland Athletics last year in a deal that also included their then ace Jeff Samardzija. The Cubs netted the A’s top prospect Addison Russell in that deal and as pointed out by Darius Fisher they seemed set with developing their young players and begin a rebuilding process. Well, that rebuilding kicked into high gear when they successfully wooed top pitching free agent Jon Lester by offering the lefty a six year contract worth a rumored $155 million dollars.
The team on the south side of the city was not content to watch the Cubs have all of the fun. The White Sox jumped headfirst into the free agent market themselves by securing relief pitcher David Robertson to a free agent deal ensuring that they have someone in the bullpen with closing experience. They then worked out a trade with the Athletics to bring Jeff Samardzija back to Chicago. The lanky righty always felt at home in the Mid West he went to school at Notre Dame and spent his entire career in the Cubs organization.
With this much activity this early in the off season, it’s hard to imagine that the Cubs and White Sox are done reconstructing their squads.
