 MauiTime Weekly Online - Vol 7 #20 - Nov13, 2003 - Surf&Sports: Pro skater Thumper Nagasako tries to stay focused   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
At home with his parents in Wailuku, he can be found at the local YMCA six days out of the week, cross-training to gain muscle and strength and methodically practicing his litany of tricks on a steeply concave vert ramp.
Strapped into skates since the age of 12, the young athlete's dedication to his sport has metamorphosed into both "a mental and physical practice." He likens the experience to an education.
And especially at the larger events, like the X Games, the Gravity Games and last year's Amateur World Championships in California--which he won--this focus is paramount to keep from cracking.

Car sports in Syria has recently witnessed a great leap with the aim of adopting all kinds of car sports.
Undoubtedly, there were serious efforts exerted in the past few decades to spread this type of sport.
Despite these shy attempts to establish car sport in Syria, they (attempts) led to the determination to organise events at international level such as the Syrian International Rally which is considered as one of the prominent stages in the Middle East Rally Championship.

The Monterey Sports Car Auction put on by RM Auctions is an alluring attraction to car enthusiasts who are in Monterey for the long weekend of events in the middle of August.
After a tiring day walking around in the sun, it's nice to sit in an air conditioned room and see the cars drive up to you instead of having to walk around and see them.
It's a shame that the two cars were probably bought by collectors and won't be driven on the street like they were meant to be.

 Reader Comments - E3 2003: XSN Sports - Xbox
I'm sure many EA Sports fans will still buy their games, but less the 15% will probably play online if they have to pay a FEE.
Sports games are too big a genre to get shit on like this.
Anyways if these sports games take off and do well EA can kiss their ass goodbye as far as online games are concerned.

 2003 Sports Car Shoot-Out: Nissan 350Z vs. Mazda RX-8   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Style rules when it comes to sports cars and these two competitors have more than their fair share of rakish lines.
Such disparate personalities make choosing one over the other that much more difficult, but after a week of back-to-back driving we were able to pick a favorite.
Whether our conclusion meshes with your idea of the perfect sports car depends on what you're looking for, but rest assured that either car delivers outstanding performance, eye-catching looks and enough features to keep you comfortable.

The death of Atlanta Thrashers forward, Dan Snyder, in a car accident was a tragic start to the NHL season.
While the outcome of Kobe Bryant's rape trial probably won't be known for months, the whole episode is bad news for the NBA and sports in general.

Addressing a rally outside City Hall in New York, Martha Burk, who's crusading for women to be admitted to Augusta National -- home of the Masters -- said the club's policies were "an insult to the 250,000 women serving in the military." Faced with withering criticism, she later said she had been misunderstood.
In wartime, sporting events have been uniquely popular gathering spots for fans to root, root, root for the troops.
Americans are generally less tolerant of fans or athletes who use the mighty pulpit of pro sports to object to U.S. foreign policy.

 Salon.com News | Sports 2003: The year of behaving badly
The year in sports was one of bad behavior, malfeasance, wrongdoing.
There were errors, screwups, bad calls and sour notes, same as always, and all that was mixed as usual with the uplift and glory that sports are so good at providing.
There was behavior so foul that thinking sports fans had to ask themselves just what kind of enterprise it was they were supporting with their money, their time and their emotions.

 EA Sports NHL 2003 Reviews   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
I use to be an avid player of EA sports NHL 1995 and 1996 and those games had the same issues; however, I thought this was only because those underlying programs were relatively simple.
I recognize that many video game programmers are trying to instill probability programs to make the games more addicting and competitive but in my view NHL 2003 just dumbfounds me and doesn't have the cadence of a real hockey game.
There wasn't a whole lot of changes from 2002 to 2003 so if you missed out on 02 you should grab 03 off the shelf.

 Sporting News, The: We love greater L.A.! Thanks to Rally Monkeys and Mighty Ducks, Anaheim-Los Angeles is TSN's 2003 ...
There was as much disbelief as there was relief combined with hysteria at The Ed, a celebration ensuing that released four decades of frustration for a franchise as well as a city that long had suffered in comparison with Los Angeles.
The Angels' championship was the defining moment in a Best Sports City year, one that served as the foundation for what would come from the other contributors to No. 1.
As we sit on the brink of another NFL season that won't be in L.A., the Anaheim-Los Angeles summer serves as a cautionary tale to all of us as sports fans: Success is fleeting; savor the moment when it presents itself.

 2003 Sports Car Shoot-Out: Nissan 350Z vs. Mazda RX-8
But in the end, they're not comfortable enough for anybody to really want to sit back there for any length of time, so the car's ability to mimic a sedan is a stretch at best.
But put aside the idea that the RX-8 is anything but a pure sports car, and the results will rarely disappoint you.
The same suspension that sticks to every undulation in the pavement also manages to deliver a compliant ride that's more sedan than sports car.

The Lady Warriors had an outstanding 2002-2003 season, one that was almost worthy of being named the top sports story of the year.
While the amateur was standing toe-to-toe with professionals (including Brian Kortan who qualified for his PGA card this year), he continued to make each shot.

In 2003, we had college coaches gone wild, drug suspensions and suspicions, one infamous corked bat and a BCS mess.
The true new low in sports occurred on Nov. 18, when the Super Bowl champion Buccaneers informed their starting wideout, Keyshawn Johnson, that he was being de-activated for the rest of the season — not because of injury or poor on-field performance, but for basically being a pain in the ass.
It was a bold, financially costly and generally celebrated move by the Bucs.

Add to that the $20 million that Seattle media company RealNetworks (REAL) has coughed up to nab exclusive online audio and video rights to MLB content, and a raft of top-drawer online advertisers, and Bowman's 170-member team is earning an operating profit.
From fantasy leagues to live footage, online sports is rapidly changing from an afterthought freebie and marketing tool to a stand-alone business that provides small but significant incremental revenues from paid content to professional and college sports leagues.
Even if those numbers turn out to be optimistic, no one disputes that sports is rapidly becoming a powerful force online.
