Pro-cyclist gets on his bike to deliver medicine

first_img Written By LIVE TV Athletes around the world have been struggling to maintain their fitness as the coronaviris lockdown continues.In Italy, pro cyclist Davide Martinelli is trying his best to remain positive and has decided to help out his local community in Lodetto.He is now delivering medicines to people who can’t get to the pharmacy themselves because of the lockdown.The Astana Team rider said the fewer people that go to the pharmacy the better.”This is our commitment, because if I go instead of three or four people, there is less risk of infection,” he said.”Given that I cycle and I had a bike and two well-trained legs, doing 10 kilometres a day is nothing special, but I wanted to help the people that always support me during the season. It was time to pay them back.”Martinelli’s father Giuseppe, himself a former rider and now Sporting Director at Astana, said he didn’t think that this year’s Tour de France would be scrubbed completely.”I hope that in August and September we can all ride and we can ride around the world because, in the end, our sport is itinerant and people come from all the world. I hope that this virus, in September, will be eradicated so we can start to live a season of cycling as it was meant to be,” he said.

Swamp Monsters? Red Tails? Gridlock? What might NFL call DC?

first_img COMMENT LIVE TV WATCH US LIVE Washington, perhaps the nation’s most reviled city, needs a new nickname for its football team. What could possibly go wrong?Naming opportunities are rife with ridicule, partisanship and humor: Washington Gridlock, Washington Swamp Monsters, Washington Bureaucrats, Washington Subpoenas, Washington Scandals or Washington Pardons. And then there’s the Capitol Indictments, Deep Staters or Deplorables if you really want to get partisan.On the traditional and of course more likely side are Red Tails, Warriors, Generals, Monuments, Senators, Cherry Blossoms, Red Wolves or even Hogs (which pays tribute to an offensive line from long ago).After dumping its longtime name, Redskins, which was considered racist, the team is said to be zeroing in on a new name, but dealing with trademark issues. Since mid June, 14 different trademarks have been filed by people for a potential Washington football team, including Red Tails, Red Wolves, Monuments and a version of Hogs. Most are by the same person.That means football team owner Daniel Snyder will likely have to pay off someone to get the name he wants, said Alexandra Watkins , whose real title is chief executive boss lady of Eat My Words, a branding company. Rebranding with new names happens a lot in the corporate world and often involves a reluctant owner, like Snyder, she said.“Most companies go through two or three name changes in the life of a company,” said Phil Davis , founder of Tungsten Branding in North Carolina.In the case of the Washington football team, where racism is an issue, both branding experts Davis and Watkins recommend a clean sweep, wiping away issues of racism and being more inclusive and embracing. So choosing a new name like Warriors, which can still be considered racist to some, would not be smart, Watkins said.“Anything with any historic significance that’s negative they should just stay away from,” Watkins said.She likes Red Tails, which is a hawk, sounds similar to the team’s original nickname and pays homage to the Tuskegee Airmen , the group of African American fighter pilots who broke down racial stereotypes during World War II.Stay away from politics, Watkins advised.“People hate politics,” Watkins said. “Sports is a great uniter. Where politics is the great divider.”However, David Litt , a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama and former chief Washington writer for Funny or Die, says as a Washington resident: “I would like to bring back the Washington Senators. You know we deserve at least some senators here in D.C.”Key to branding is being clear, concise, compelling and consistent, Davis said. And do it in only one or two words.One issue is the city of Washington itself.“It’s the only equal opportunity hated city,” Davis said. “Both sides hate it.”So that gives the opportunity for a little fun like Swamp Monsters or Gridlock, which Davis likes.Normally Watkins loves using humorous names, reeling off her favorites: the yogurt chain Spoon Me, Denver’s Church of Cupcakes, San Francisco’s TMI Colonics. But for sports teams, she said it’s not right, especially for a team that has upset people in the past with their name: “They need to be serious.”Still, there is the opportunity for humor, especially at the expense of a football team that hasn’t won a playoff game since 2005 and has gone 132-187 this century.“’Not an embarrassment’ would be an exciting thing to call the team from Washington,” said comedy writer and Washingtonian Litt. He also praised this tweet from “The Daily Show” writer Jason Gilbert: “They should rename it the Washington Liberals Watching the Supreme Court because they usually have to settle for 3 wins per season.”Eric Denzenall , who has been in Washington since working for the Reagan White House and now runs a crisis communications firm, has some suggestions of his own.“If your objective is to appease the cultural left, there is the Washington Inclusives,’’ Dezenhall wrote in an email. “For a Trumpian theme, the Washington Tweets, Washington Covfefes or Washington Combovers could work.“If we want something that everyone has in common, why not the Washington Smart Phones, after all, nobody’s watching the action on the field anymore?”Image credits: AP Last Updated: 14th July, 2020 06:59 IST Swamp Monsters?
