Sylvester Stallone will be part of The Suicide Squad’s massive ensemble cast, writer-director James Gunn has announced. It also marks a reunion for the two, after having worked on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. There’s no word on what character Stallone will be playing, but given the fact that filming on The Suicide Squad wrapped up prior to COVID-19 lockdowns in February, there seems to be just one possibility that is being rumoured: Stallone is voicing a character that doesn’t have a human face, such as King Shark. But that’s unconfirmed and for now, his role is simply undisclosed.“Always love working with my friend [Sylvester Stallone] and our work today on [The Suicide Squad] was no exception. Despite Sly being an iconic movie star, most people still don’t have any idea what an amazing actor this guy is. 🙌,” Gunn wrote in a caption on his Instagram. Stallone later shared a screenshot of the news on his Instagram and wrote: “Working with this incredible director on this astounding project has made this an amazing year. I am a very lucky man to be surrounded by such talent.!”- Advertisement – – Advertisement –
The major consensus among Ghanaians has been that we should not participate in this year Rio Olympic Games with many of the view that considering Ghana’s poor record of winning medals at the last two editions of the multisport event, it will be proper not to waste the tax payer’s money on just the 16 athletes qualified athletes for this year’s games.But National Sports Authority boss Joe Kpenge in an exclusive chat with Joy Sports has stated that although he would have wished Ghana qualify more athletes, we should back those that are going to represent the country“If we want to send athletes there, we want to send the best, if 15 or 20 are the best, who are medal hopefuls, then that is okay that we don’t send a large contingent there,” he said.“So if these can guarantee us some medals, some honor, so we should appreciate that.”Kpenge wishes Ghana was sending more athletes to the games, we should still support the few athletes that are going. The Olympics being the powerhouse of all sporting events, it would be a shame to not have Ghana represented.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH. Our hashtag is #JoySports

AUBREY BRUCE Sean Gibson said; “the event will be held on August 13 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel and will be the primary activity to honor the 100th anniversary of his great-grandfather.”Josh Gibson began playing professionally for the Pittsburgh Crawfords at age 16.Over the next 17 years, he was the catcher for both the Crawfords and Homestead Grays and best known for his exceptional home run-hitting power. Gibson died tragically in 1947.Pittsburgh Steelers Hall of Famer Franco Harris pointed out that “we look at a lot of different feats and things that were accomplished, but, just like in any sport, we know there were a lot of challenges also during that time, but the most important thing is that they met those challenges, came through those challenges and have left a great history for us, especially here in Pittsburgh.”Legendary MLB Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson will receive the 2011 Josh Gibson Legacy Award at the event. Jackson hit 563 home runs over his 21-year major league career. The Josh Gibson Foundation will also use this special night to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Pirates fielding the first all-minority lineup in major league history.Former Pirates Centerfielder Al (scoops) Oliver also reminisced; “It wasn’t a big deal to most of us but, when you [take a] look back you appreciate it more today than when it happened, [just] to be a part of history.”Josh Gibson may be gone but his contributions and sacrifices should never be taken lightly by any American because he shed blood, sweat and tears not just to make the game of baseball better but to remove the cloak of racism from our lifestyles and our culture. What a difference one hundred years can make. “If you miss the train I’m on, you will know that I am gone. You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles. A hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles, a hundred miles. You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles.” (Hedy West) The Josh Gibson Foundation announced plans for the Josh Gibson Centennial Negro League Gala recently at a news conference held at the Heinz History Center.
