Kahn accuses Ramos of Karius elbow

first_imgLiverpool Kahn defends Karius & accuses Ramos of elbowing Liverpool goalkeeper Robin Bairner Last updated 1 year ago 17:35 5/27/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(5) Loris Karius Getty Liverpool Real Madrid v Liverpool Real Madrid UEFA Champions League The former Germany No.1 has backed his compatriot after a Champions League final to forget, suggesting he was the victim of foul play Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius may have been affected by a collision with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos before making two errors during Saturday’s Champions League final, Oliver Kahn has argued.The former Bayern Munich and Germany No.1 has suggested that Ramos elbowed Karius early in the second half, which may have had an impact on his compatriot’s concentration later in the game.Liverpool went down 3-1 to Real Madrid, with the Spanish side getting their opener in bizarre style as Karim Benzema blocked Karius’ attempted throw out into the net. Although Sadio Mane levelled, Gareth Bale put the Spaniards back into the lead with a spectacular overhead kick before sealing the victory with a long-range shot the Reds keeper fumbled into his net.

Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Kahn, though, believes the off-the-ball collision may have played a greater role than is being given credit.”You can only speculate whether the alleged elbow impacted Karius,” he told ZDF.“But an elbow to the face is certainly not very comfortable and in that situation it was unnecessary by Ramos.“There is no need to use the elbow in that situation.”Although he criticised the defender over that incident, Kahn did admit that Ramos is a player he holds in the highest regard.“He is the kind of player that I would have always selected first in school to have him on my team because he is an absolute leader who works with all measures,” he said.Ramos had scored in two of his previous three Champions League final appearances, but while he was not on target on Saturday, he had an impact on many of the match’s most controversial moments, having been involved previously in an incident that saw Mohamed Salah go off injured in the opening period.

Fields Look Good Despite Rain

first_imgJust over five weeks ago Port Macquarie Sports Field coordinator Kerry Lewis needed rain.And that’s what he got.Five weeks ago they received 175mL over two days, resulting in the fields at Port Macquarie Regional Sports Stadium resembling more of a lake than a sporting field.“Its probably the worst ones we’ve had in 20 years,” Kerry said in regards to the rainfall.“We had water coming halfway up the field, on the main field. We had debris all over it, and over at Tuffins Lane there was debris, all our lawns [had] washed out what – we had already prepared for,”Kerry and his staff had the fields perfect before the storm, but had to start again.“We had a lot of top dressing, that was just recovering, and that got washed away, and we had to re-dress it all, and remark all the lines,” That was five weeks ago.The fields were ready the Friday before the X-Blades National Touch League, and then the rain arrived again, this time just two days out from the start of the tournament.In these two days, 75mL of rain fell, throwing plans into disarray.Kerry, who has played touch for years, along with his two trainees then had to work around the clock in their attempt to get the fields in the condition that they are now, while TFA staff were working in gumboots and raincoats to prepare the stadium.“I had to refertilise them to get them going again, and then aerate them and remark them all.” Kerry said.But thankfully for Kerry and his team, and the TFA staff, the rain stopped and allowed the tournament to start with just a few puddles.last_img read more

Video: Syracuse Basketball Greats Welcome Jim Boeheim Back From Suspension

first_imgScoop Jardine holds a microphone to welcome back Jim Boeheim.Twitter/@Cuse_MBBJim Boeheim is back on the bench for Syracuse, and just in the nick of time. The Orange went just 4-5 under Mike Hopkins during his suspension, which came as a result of the NCAA probe into the program, and SU is in serious risk of missing the NCAA Tournament for a second straight season after the team self-imposed a ban in 2014. UNC travels to the Carrier Dome today, and a few former Syracuse greats are on hand.

Fabregas completes move to Monaco

first_imgChelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has completed his move to Monaco.Fabregas will move to Monaco without a fee for now, as Chelsea will be paid via bonuses depending on the Fabregas’s performances. The 31-year-old has signed a three-and-a-half-year-deal with the principality club, with it hoped he will play a key role in helping the 2017 Ligue 1 champions avoid relegation. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? He will reunite with former Arsenal team-mate and close friend Thierry Henry at Stade Louis II, with the Gunners’ all-time top goalscorer taking his first steps in management after Leonardo Jardim was sacked in October.”It is a great pleasure to join AS Monaco, a new project for me,” Fabregas said in a statement.”The group is quality with young players and a young coach. I’m here to help the team.”I’m looking forward to starting, we have a great match to play in Marseille on Sunday. I am very excited.”Fabregas’ departure from Chelsea sees him end four-and-a-half years at Stamford Bridge after he joined the Blues from Barcelona in 2014, with the Spain international helping the west London outfit win two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.”There is no doubt Fabregas’s place in the Chelsea history books is assured given his achievements over the past four-and-a-half seasons,” a club statement read.”Big goals and outstanding moments of quality, all backed up by the ultimate aim, which is to be part of a successful, trophy-winning team.”Fabregas departs having helped the club achieve great success, as well as providing our supporters with some wonderful memories.”In total he scored 22 goals and laid on 57 assists during his 198 appearances for Chelsea, the last of which came on Saturday when he bid an emotional farewell to the club’s fans in the final stages of his side’s 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.Cesc Fabregas Chelsea 2018-19Cup matches have offered Fabregas the main chance to impress under Maurizio Sarri, with Jorginho’s arrival in the summer forcing Fabregas down the pecking order in terms of midfield places.Fabregas’ departure will now hasten Sarri’s need to find a replacement, with the Blues working on deals to sign Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella and Zenit St. Petersburg’s Leandro Paredes, though there has been no final decision in terms of what kind of player will be brought in to replace the ex-Arsenal man.What his departure does do is free up a large chunk of Chelsea’s wage bill, with Fabregas the third-highest paid player at the club behind N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard despite only having six months left on his contract.AC Milan had previously shown an interest in signing him, but they were priced out of a deal due to upcoming Financial Fair Play sanctions.”We are very pleased to welcome Cesc Fabregas, a world-class player and a great professional, whose arrival demonstrates the ambition of the club,” said Vadim Vasilyev, the club’s vice president and general manager.”This is obviously a very good reinforcement for the team and we are convinced that his experience at the highest level will bring a lot to our players on and off the field.”Fabregas could be joined at Monaco by a familiar face, with the Ligue 1 outfit in advanced talks to sign Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi.Henry is keen to bolster his squad with his side sitting 19th in the table and five points from guaranteed safety, though they did book themselves a place in the Coupe de la Ligue semi-finals on Tuesday.last_img read more

Barella offered Chelsea warning amid £45m move talk

first_imgNicolo Barella may be a £45 million ($58m) target for Chelsea, but Italy manager Roberto Mancini has sounded a warning to the Cagliari midfielder ahead of any potential big-money move.Goal revealed recently that the 21-year-old has been identified as a top target by Maurizio Sarri, amid competition from Serie A heavyweights Inter.The Chelsea boss sees the highly-rated youngster as a natural successor to Cesc Fabregas, who has completed a £10m ($13m) switch to Monaco. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? It would appear to be only a matter of time before Barella finds himself on the move, with it expected that his potential will soon be given a grander stage on which to flourish.Mancini, though, has called upon a member of his Azzurri squad to give careful consideration to any future call, with it imperative that gets assurances of regular game time before heading anywhere.The former Inter and Manchester City boss told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I was telling [Marco] Tardelli at the Coverciano training ground that Barella moves a lot like him.”He has technique, quality, rarely loses the ball, is good in the air despite not being tall, never gives up and tends to push forward, but needs to also score a few more goals.”Considering his age and the relative lack of Serie A experience, he has a strong grasp on his role already.”Barella can set the example for the young Italian players out there who can give a little more to make that step up.Nicolo Barella Cagliari 2018-19“He has enormous potential for growth and if he does leave Cagliari, he must be certain that he gets to play regularly.”If he does go to a big club and is a first choice, then he can improve far more.”However, if he risks spending half the season on the bench, he should stay put.”Barella has been part of the senior set-up at Cagliari since making his debut in May 2015.He is fast closing in on 100 appearances for the club and has shown himself to be a more than capable performer in the Italian top-flight.Chelsea would welcome the opportunity to bring his obvious potential onto their books, but they do boast several alternative options in the middle of the park.Sarri is, however, building for the present and future and will hope to convince an exciting prospect that he can play a leading role in those plans.last_img read more

first_img India Today Web Desk AucklandFebruary 8, 2019UPDATED: February 8, 2019 19:45 IST It is understood that the #MeToo poster was directed at New Zealand all-rounder Scott Kuggeleijn (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSThe message in the banner was understood to be directed at New Zealand’s Scott KuggeleijnKuggeleijn had faced trials in 2016 and 2017 after he was charged with rape in Hamilton in 2015Kuggeleijn was found not guilty of rape in 2017 despite him admitting that he did not have consensual sexNew Zealand Cricket officials were once again left red-faced after another woman held up a banner protesting against Scott Kuggeleijn’s participation in the second T20 international between India and New Zealand on Friday.Scott Kuggeleijn, who was cleared of rape charges in 2017, bowled 3.5 overs in the match and also scored 2 runs as India beat New Zealand by 7 wickets to level the three-match series 1-1 in Auckland.But Kuggeleijn’s participation has led to protests, one of whom had held up a banner, which read “no means no”, in the first T20I in Wellington.Another woman was seen holding up a banner which read “Wake up, NZ Cricket, #MeToo”.New Zealand Cricket and Westpac Stadium had earlier apologised for removing a banner promoting sexual consent during the first match. The banner was confiscated and the woman was told she would get it back after the double-header.The message in the banner was directed at Scott Kuggeleijn, who was selected for the national side after a jury found him not guilty in a rape case two years ago.New Zealand cricket public relations officer, Richard Boock conceded the decision to remove the banner was an overreaction. However, he pointed out that the New Zealand Cricket and the Westpac Stadium officials had just followed the guidelines that prohibit targetting players with such banners.”We agree the course taken was an over-reaction and unnecessary, and the sign certainly wasn’t offensive,” Boock said, as quoted by the report.”The policy is a guideline only and is not written in stone. I think, on this occasion, we should have shown better judgment and exercised more discretion. We’ll be having a chat about it in our debrief with a view to making sure that doesn’t happen again, and we’re sorry.”advertisementKuggeleijn had faced trials in 2016 and 2017 after he was charged with rape in Hamilton in 2015. After a hung jury in the first trial, he was found not guilty of rape in the second despite the New Zealand cricketer conceding the woman in question had said no to sex.Also Read | We just waited for umpire’s decision: Khaleel Ahmed on Daryl Mitchell DRS controversyAlso Read | Did you miss Virat Kohli, reporter asks.

Notably India have prevailed in 3 out of the 7 semi-final appearances while going on to win the title twice.All the teams have now played 8 games each with Australia leading the table with 14 points followed by India (13), New Zealand (11) and England (10) in the first-four spots.The race to reach the semis is still on between New Zealand, England and Pakistan. The campaigns of Sri Lanka, West Indies, Bangladesh, South Africa and Afghanistan have ended with one final game remaining for each team.This is how the points table looks like now after 40 matches in the tournament. India Today PhotoHosts England will face New Zealand in a virtual winner-takes-all encounter in Durham on Wednesday. England will secure a spot in the semifinals if they beat New Zealand in the northeast town of Chester-le-Street, ending a group-stage campaign in which the World Cup hosts found itself in a perilous position.advertisementA defeat however, would leave the English at the mercy of Pakistan, which would then guarantee a playoff spot with a win over Bangladesh at Lord’s on Friday.New Zealand meanwhile, are on track to reach the last four once again this year after reaching the final of the World Cup in 2015.A win against England seals a semi-final berth, while avoiding a big defeat should also mean fifth-placed Pakistan cannot overhaul the Black Caps. Pakistan is two points behind New Zealand going into the final group matches but has a much inferior net run-rate.Also Read | World Cup 2019: What happens to Pakistan if England beat New Zealand?Also Read | India qualify for World Cup semi-finals for 7th timeAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur disappointed with India’s loss to EnglandFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

We needed his experience later: Ravi Shastri defends decision to send MS Dhoni at No. 7 vs New Zealand

first_img India Today Web Desk ManchesterJuly 12, 2019UPDATED: July 12, 2019 13:38 IST MS Dhoni’s run out dashed all hopes of an Indian victory in the World Cup 2019 semi-final vs New Zealand (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMS Dhoni came out to bat at No. 7 in the unsuccessful run chase vs New ZealandHead coach Ravi Shastri said it was a collective decision to send Dhoni lower down the orderIndia fell short by 18 runs in the end, getting bowled out for 221 in chase of 240A lot of eyebrows were raised when India sent MS Dhoni in at No. 7 during the unsuccessful run chase against New Zealand in the World Cup 2019 semi-final with even the commentators on air questioning the team’s decision.India were tottering at 71 for 5 when Dhoni joined Hardik Pandya in the run chase in the 23rd over. Pandya got out soon after and that is when Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja took charge of the situation at 92 for 6.The duo added 116 runs for the seventh wicket before Jadeja got out for 77 in the 48th over. It was left to Dhoni to finish the game from that position but he got run out on 50, just three balls after Jadeja departed, which ended all hopes of an Indian victory.Former India captain Sourav Ganguly was furious with the team’s decision to send in Dhoni so late. Sachin Tendulkar also was not impressed with the team’s batting order and felt that Dhoni should have batted at No. 5.But head coach Ravi Shastri explained that the team needed Dhoni’s experience lower down the order which is why he was sent in after Dinesh Karthik and Hardik Pandya.”It was a team decision. Everyone was in with it – and it was a simple decision, too. Last thing you wanted was Dhoni coming out to bat early and getting out – that would have killed the chase. We needed his experience later.”He is the greatest finisher of all times – and it would have been criminal to not make use of him in that way. The whole team was clear on it.advertisement”And Rishabh Pant did look pretty secure when he got out to bat, even against (New Zealand fast bowler) Trent Boult, didn’t he? You could then say that if Pant had continued and not got out but that’s sport. You grow up in quick time. He will learn, he already knows it. But I am happy that the team showed spunk. They didn’t give up even after losing Pant and Pandya. What a fightback that was,” Shastri told The Indian Express.Even after Jadeja got out, the equation was still well within Dhoni’s reach as India needed 32 from 13 deliveries. It was something that a finisher like Dhoni could have achieved had he stayed till the very end.But Martin Guptill dashed all hopes of yet another miraculous finish from Dhoni as he ran him out with a direct hit in the third ball of the penultimate over. That was the final nail in India’s coffin.”He (Dhoni) was magnificent. The composure in the situation. And let me tell you, if not for that unfortunate run out, I think he had his calculations going inside his head.”Which ball to hit, how much to keep for (James) Neesham’s last over. You could see his brain was ticking. He wanted to do it so desperately and it was clear on his face,” Shastri said.India fell short by 18 runs in the end, getting bowled out for 221 in 49.3 overs after a tremendous fightback thanks to Jadeja and Dhoni. But in the end, it was the result that mattered as New Zealand advanced to their second successive final while India got knocked out in the semi-finals of the World Cup yet again after 2015.Also Read | India’s World Cup campaign ends in heartbreak: Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri’s tactical blundersAlso Read | Ravi Shastri to Team India after World Cup exit: Be proud of what you have done for the last 2 yearsAlso Read | Extension for Ravi Shastri-led support staff but Sanjay Bangar under scanner For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Feel Good Friday: Dr. Bronner’s Supports Marine Life Conservation, Fair Trade Practices, and Much More

first_img What Wrangler Is Doing to Make Denim More Sustainable Editors’ Recommendations How to Choose the Best Organic Mattress for Greener Sleep You probably know Dr. Bronner’s as the “18-in-one” soap brand with a whole lot of words on the label. If you took the time to read these words, you would pick up on at least two things: one, the rambling, almost insane writing; and two, the exuberant insistence that humanity is ALL-ONE!This is a surprisingly sunny outlook considering that Emanuel Bronner’s parents were casualties of the Holocaust. What’s even more amazing is that Dr. Bronner’s actually follows through on their labels’ dreamy rhetoric. Indeed, Dr. Bronner’s is a humble, no-nonsense soap brand that’s dedicated to environmental and social responsibility.Pictured: Well-paid coconut harvesters in KenyaDr. Bronner’s use organic, fair-trade ingredients, ensuring that both workers and the environment are treated fairly. They even go out of their way to purchase olive oil from both Palestinian and Israeli producers. Not only is Dr. Bronner’s helping ensure hospitable conditions for Palestinian workers, but the business arrangement itself is a symbol of peace and conciliation.The soap brand has also partnered with a number of organizations that are driving positive change in the world. Most recently, they provided free soap for the crews of three Sea Shepherd vessels bound for the Faroe Islands. The non-profit marine life conservation organization is engaged in an ongoing campaign to expose inhumane and illegal whaling practices.Related: Reduce Your Carbon Footprint, Not Your SwaggerDr. Bronner’s makes a fine product, to boot. Their 18-in-one “Magic Soap,” is supposedly effective for everything from washing your hair to brushing your teeth to mopping the floor. The ingredients are all-natural, with no genetically manufactured organisms or animal testing involved. Their classic Pure-Castile liquid soaps now come in eight scents, including tea tree, almond, lavender, and citrus.If you’re the kind of guy who doesn’t like to fuss around with dozens of different cleaning products, you’ll find that Dr. Bronner’s is a good way to go. While it may not be the best at anything, it’s pretty good at everything — especially when it comes to making a positive impact on the planet. 3 of the Best Teeth Whitening Products For Pearly Whites Westland Distillery Creates New Fellowship for Barley Research 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Know last_img read more

How One Transformational Week Inspired John Murray to Jump into Power Yoga

first_img If You Haven’t Visited the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, What Are You Waiting For? Slopestyle Mountain Bike Champion Emil Johansson Talks Tricks, Staying Fit, and More Editors’ Recommendations For this week’s Worn Out Wednesday, we speak with John Murray, co-founder of Lyons Den Power Yoga on his career and personal style. I grew up in Girard, Pennsylvania which is a 2,000 person town 30 miles outside of Erie. Since leaving after my senior year of high school, I have lived in Syracuse, Boston, Venice Beach and New York City where I now reside. On May 17, I celebrated my 10th year in NYC and according to local custom, I may officially label myself a “New Yorker.”In every place I live, the job I keep finding myself coming back to is hospitality. For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed knowing and interacting with others. I draw energy from each interaction and the hospitality profession has afforded me countless opportunities to do just that.In a way, I believe my personal style is a reflection of how I relate to people; When I meet a person, I am meeting them and not their group, associations, or my preconceived notion of what they should or should not be. And when you are my friend, I am loyal. In fashion this sometimes leads me to wonder what the hell my own style is, as I do not consciously cultivate “a look,” and when I find a piece of clothing I like, it is likely to grow threadbare.Prior to 2012, my experience in the yoga world was close to zero. I had practiced some and really enjoyed being on the outside looking in. Finally, after Bethany (Editor’s Note: Bethany Lyons is Murray’s partner in life and business)  told me about her plan to open a studio, I decided to attend a week-long yoga teacher training in the Catskills taught by Baron Baptiste. It was, flat out, one of the most transformational weeks of my life. I came home and told Bethany we HAD to open the studio. One year later we opened the doors to Lyons Den Power Yoga.After 2.5 years of operating our first location, we decided to take the chance to expand our existing location to a new floor and also open a second location in Chelsea, NYC. I had grown more and more passionate about the business and so, after 15 years of working as a General Manager, Regional Manager, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer in the hospitality world, I decided to join my wife in the full-time operations of Lyons Den Power Yoga.Today, as I write this, I am proud to say that my work is dedicated to the empowerment of others to create connection and take action on what matters most to them and I get to do it side by side with the woman I love. And we look forward to expanding Lyons Den Power Yoga to many others in the years ahead.Jeans: For a night out: John Varvatos Wight Faded and Washed Jean. I love the look and feel of their faded denim. I can wear sports jackets or t-shirts and either way I have confidence in the way I look. These also work well with my black, ankle-high Cole Haan Boots (a few seasons old).For casual on-the-go: Banana Republic Straight Cut Rapid Movement Dark Wash Jean. I love the stretch feeling of the denim and the cut that feels fitted but also does not grab around my thigh. I like clothes that feel comfortable and this is one of my go-to’s.Shirts: James Perse High Gauge Jersey Polo. I have a wider chest so the challenge for me is finding a polo that doesn’t pull in the chest but also fits and isn’t boxy. This polo fits the bill perfectly.Rag and Bone Beach Shirt long sleeve flannel and pattern button downs are a nostalgic throw back for me from when I lived in Venice Beach and will forever be part of my wardrobe. This is one of the most comfortable ones in my closet. Pants: Lululemon ABC (anti-ball-crushing) PantsAs the co-owner of Lyons Den Power Yoga, I am constantly in-between the worlds of conducting business both inside of the yoga studio and outside. Versatility here is clutch!Suits: Bonobos Foundation Italian Wool SuitTo date, this is still one of the best fitting, most versatile, and comfortable suits I have ever owned.Hugo Boss Pasolini/Movie Comfort Fit, Super 100 Wool.When I first moved to Manhattan, I was interviewing with a big restaurant group. At the same time FRACTURE with Ryan Gosling came out and his suits in the movie were incredible. The first suit I ever purchased was a Hugo Boss suit. It felt like armor in New York City, and I have been a fan ever since.Shoes: Nike Metcon 3’sAfter hours of exhaustive research on the best pair of cross trainers I decided on the Metcon 3. 2 weeks in I wear them everywhere and they are easily the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned.Rivieras – Navy Slip-On CanvasThese are cool, casual and comfy. The perfect summertime shoe for NYC brunching or beaching.Rust Colored Redmond Giorgio Brutini lace-ups.These are a little different, always look sharp and the price is not to be beat.Accessories: My wedding ring (Cartier), Yankees Baseball fitted cap (official Yankees gear), Hex Agency Convertible Backpack.This is my mobile office and I carry it with me EVERYWHERE. Amazing gift from my wife when I officially came on full-time at Lyons Den Power Yoga.My HAIR is actually my best accessory – and I’ve worn every style from a slicked-back 50’s look, to shoulder-length California dude, to a full-on mohawk. My wife threatens me when I say I’m going to shave my head (also has happened several times). My father-in-law calls me the “Man of Many Hair-Dos.” Outerwear: Hugo Boss Selection blue trench coat(This is not the exact coat as it is a few seasons loved – but similar in style to this)New York City proven and looks good over anything.Rag N’ Bone Racer Hoodie Mine is black & red and bold all over.Favorite cologne: I do not wear it. Favorite app: Headspace (a meditation app that works!)Favorite piece of technology: iPAD Pro Next style/gear purchase: It’s time for a new pair of summer slip-on shoes for walking around the city. I might have to take the topsider plunge. Why Every Man Should Care About Slow Fashion The Best Campgrounds Near Major U.S. Cities How to Choose the Right Dress Shirt last_img read more

Jazz Legend Miles Davis’ Ferrari 308 Heads to Auction

first_img Learn Guitar (and Don’t Give Up) With the Fender Play App The Ferrari 308 GTSi isn’t the best Ferrari. Heck, it isn’t even a good Ferrari. It was built during an era that saw Ferrari’s engines down on power and lacking that certain something that the company had built its empire on just a decade prior. As such, they’re not the most popular models. This one in particular, however, is something quite special. A Ferrari 308 GTSi once owned by jazz legend Miles Davis.David Warner Ellis/Getty ImagesMiles Davis was, in his time, the man. The trumpeter led bands; composed scores of music; worked with the likes of John Coltrane, Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway, and John Scofield; won 32 Grammys; and continually worked for over five decades. He had his ups and downs, a period of addiction, but Davis remains one of the most, if not the most, prominent jazz musicians ever. His influence can still be felt throughout the jazz scene, as well as in other genres.Today, however, is all about his car. Working with eBay and Beverly Hills Car Club, Davis’ 308 GTSi will be auctioned off; a portion of the proceeds going to The Grammy Museum Foundation for Music Education in Los Angeles. The 308 GTSi is finished in Fly Yellow with a chocolate brown interior and has just under 10,000 miles on its odometer. According to the club, the purchase will also come with proof of provenance. Editors’ Recommendations Beverlyhillscarclub/EbaySpeaking ahead of the auction, Beverly Hills Car Club president Alex Manos stated, “ Miles had such exquisite taste. It’s a unique and exciting experience to be able to offer something to the public from the Davis estate. It will be exciting to know who the next person to own and drive it will be.”Executive director for The Grammy Museum, Michael Sticka, added, “The Grammy Museum is deeply appreciative to the Beverly Hills Car Club for recognizing the importance of strengthening music education in our community. Through their generosity, we can continue to help foster the budding musical interests of all children.”As of this writing, the current bid for Davis’ Ferrari is $75,000, which doesn’t sound like that much for your own piece of music history. Bidding will close at 2 p.m. PST on Friday, September 28.
