Connected to it is a bench with which the USC great sat on following the ceremony as he appeared to be reflecting on everything that happened.“I want to take the privilege of looking George Rogers eyeball to eyeball and say thank you,” said Garry Harper, the Gamecocks starting quarterback when Rogers was in the backfield. “Not many guys have done what you’ve done.

We love you.”Members of the family of Rogers coach, Jim Carlen, were in attendance.The statue has four plaques on it, one with the text of his football career, the second contains his records, the third the 1980 USC football team roster and the fourth a list of the donors to the project.The statue was unveiled on the same day the Springs Brooks Plaza was opened to the public for the first time.“It’s a really big honor for me,” Rogers said following the program. “This means a lot that the university would do this.“What means even more is the fact that some many of my teammates came back to celebrate with me because, if had not been for them, none of this would have happened.”last_img read more

The American teenager spent almost half a million crowns on his…

first_imgBeing able to financially support content creators on streaming platforms is certainly a nice way to appreciate their work. Even here, however, it is true that less is sometimes more, as would certainly be confirmed by the mother of a teenager who spent 20 thousand dollars (approximately 465 thousand crowns) from her account in seventeen days. TechSpot magazine informs about the case.Children spending exorbitant amounts on their parents’ credit cards are nothing new. There have been a number of similar cases in the past – but the offspring are the most common they spent on additions and improvements to the games through in-app purchases. The current case is interesting in that the adolescent in this case invested in the support of streamers on the Twitch platform.Half a million in seventeen daysThe mother informed about the inconvenience on the Reddit discussion server (the post was subsequently deleted), stating that the teenage son spent money on so-called bits. Bits are virtual items that users can buy on Twitch – they give them the power to encourage and support sending users, to make themselves visible in the chat with animated emoticons, badges and rankings. In addition, between June 14 and June 30, the boy purchased several subscriptions, up to $ 24.99 (approximately $ 570), and provided unlimited financial donations to various streamers. In this way, for example, he supported the American football player Kurt Benkert or the basketball player Meyers Leonard.How did a teenager get so much money? According to the information available, he appears to have received a debit card from his mother so that he could buy lunch at school. Due to the low balance, he began transferring money from his mother’s bank account. She didn’t notice anything, because she only checks the account twice a month.Late crying over spilled milk“As soon as I found out, I contacted my bank, which froze all our accounts and blocked his debit card,” said the mother. However, she would be entitled to a refund only if would file a criminal complaint against her son.Although there is obvious guilt on the part of the parent (for example, due to insufficient security of the bank account or lax balance control), the mother complains that the Twitch operator did not respond to her requests for more than two weeks. Her only chance is to get direct contact with the streamers and ask them if they would be willing to return the gifts. At least the fact that admits his guilt for the whole event. “I work many hours a day and don’t pay enough attention to what my son does online. During that time, his Internet knowledge absolutely surpassed mine. Now I’m trying to find out why he did it to make sure it’s the only big mistake he’s made in his life. ”last_img read more

Juventus end season unbeaten

first_imgChampions Juventus broke AC Milan’s record of 42 matches unbeaten and finished the league season undefeated with a 3-1 win over Atalanta on Sunday.It was also the perfect send-off after 19 years with the Old Lady for club captain Alessandro Del Piero, who took the armband for the final time in a Serie A game in Juve’s colours and netted his team’s second goal, reports AFP.Youngster Luca Marrone scored the opener and Andrea Barzagli netted a last-minute penalty as Juve finished the season with 84 points, four clear of last year’s champions Milan.The only blips were a late own goal from Stephan Lichsteiner and an injury to centre-back Giorgio Chiellini that could put his Euro 2012 participation at risk.The victory meant Juve took their unbeaten run in all competitions to 43 games, including the final match of last season, a record for an Italian team.They also produced the first unbeaten Serie A campaign since Milan in 1992, and the first since Italy moved from an 18 to a 20-team league. If they avoid defeat in next weekend’s Cup final they will become the first team to go an entire season unbeaten in league and cup, although they were helped by not playing in Europe.Their clash with Atalanta was little more than a glorified friendly.It was over within a half hour as Marco Borriello’s back-heel set up Morrone to blast home from an angle on 10 minutes.Juve were guilty of trying too hard to set up Del Piero and Simone Padoin wasted a chance when he tried to play in his captain rather than shoot.But Del Piero’s goal came on 28 minutes as he curled home expertly from outside the area. The game descended into near farce in the second period when coach Antonio Conte decided to substitute Del Piero so he could receive a rapturous ovation from the fans.He got that but the sight of a league match being held up for at least a couple of minutes to affect a substitution while all his team-mates joined him in the centre-circle to salute him seemed like a scene from a testimonial match.With the game ongoing, he then embarked on a lap of honour to salute the fans.Milan finished their season with a the perfect party scenario as 38-year-old Filippo Inzaghi scored the winner on his 300th and final appearance for the club before retiring in a 2-1 win over relegated Novara.“I’m spent, now it’s hard to give up everything, my legs are there, I don’t have any pain,” said the man of the moment. “After the cruciate knee ligament operation I got well again. Playing a long way from Milan is so hard but I will return to this club.”With popular stalwarts Inzaghi, Gennaro Gattuso and Alessandro Nesta all making their final bow in a Milan shirt, this match took time to come to life.Gattuso captained the side but looked a shadow of his former self while the biggest cheer of the afternoon was reserved for Inzaghi’s entry from the bench.Novara threatened to upset the party when Santiago Garcia found himself alone in the box to shoot home on 20 minutes.Milan hit back through Mathieu Flamini from inside the box after Antonio Cassano’s clever pass on 56 minutes. The rest of the match saw Milan desperately trying to set up Inzaghi to sign off with a goal, which duly came eight minutes from time, ensuring the party could start.It was Inzaghi’s 156th goal in Serie A and just to top things off, it was fellow veteran Clarence Seedorf who played the pass.last_img read more
