Aviation Loses a Legend

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 16:17:53 -0400

This might have only a tangential relation to sports, but Bob Hoover's long time promotion of the Reno Air Races and his former captaincy on the US Aerobatic Team should qualify. Bob Hoover died on October 25 at the age of 94. He was a former Naval aviator, aerobatic performer, and corporate test pilot for North American Aviation. One of his "signature" performances was his demonstration of the capabilities of the North American "Shrike" Commander, a variant of the twin turboprop corporate Aero Commander business aircraft. He would take the aircraft through a series of maneuvers, and for the climax he would kill both engines, feather the props, execute a full loop, and land the aircraft precisely "on the numbers" (that is, the numbers at the end of the runway). His skills were unmatched. My working life was spent for the most part being in, on, under, and generally around aircraft, and Mr. Hoover was one of the giants I respected greatly.(image)

MLB Commissioner Red-Faced Over Indians Logo

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 15:03:14 -0400

The belief that the Cleveland Indians were phasing out Chief Wahoo has been completely obliterated during the postseason. The Sambo-like caricature is on the team's caps, uniforms and a lot of other branding. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said he understands why the logo is considered offensive and will discuss it with team owner Larry Dolan: "I think that after the World Series, at an appropriate point in time, Mr. Dolan and I have agreed we'll have a conversation about what should happen with that particular logo going forward."(image)
