During this week’s World Best 8x Haunting Sports News, we take a look at the ghosts of sports. We discuss ghosts in sports, stadiums, and even teams.
Ghosts of sports
Those in the sports news industry have been talking about ghosts of the past and future for a while now. From the “seeing a ghost” comment by the New York Jets’ quarterback Sam Darnold to the aforementioned “smart” use of social media by NFL superstar Le’Veon Bell to the newfound attention being paid to the NFL’s COVID security issues, the ghosts have been everywhere.
The aforementioned “smart” use has been attributed to sports psychologist Fabio Richlan, an Austrian who has worked in anti-corruption for more than ten years. This “smart” use refers to a small but impressive piece of technology that sports fans can use to detect sports corruption.
The technology was developed by a company called Sports-Eye, which is an Austrian sports technology company. It is designed to detect “ghosts of the past and future” in sports news. It includes a database of more than 9,000 newspapers, with data from 50 state press associations. It also includes an analysis of editorial content, online research and official statements by corporate owners.
Ghosts of teams
Putting together an effective team isn’t as easy as it sounds. And if your team hasn’t been around for a while, you may have to look to the past for inspiration. For example, the Cleveland Indians have been around for the better part of a century. And if you are a devoted baseball fan, you know that you are going to have to do your homework. For example, you will need to know about the Indians’ penchant for stealing the ball, and you will have to be on the same page when it comes to stealing the homerun. Fortunately, your scouts have the foresight to guard against the aforementioned pitfalls.
One such team has been around since 1939. They have been known to score some hefty runs, but that hasn’t stopped them from getting in a few rough and tumbles along the way.
Ghosts of stadiums
Several stadiums around the country are said to be haunted. In some cases, the spirits are said to be those of deceased sports stars. These sports figures have been reported to have been seen in their uniforms, wearing bandages, or wearing slings. Many fans have reported seeing these ghosts in the stadiums.
There are several ghosts associated with the Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium. They include a woman who fell off a cliff, a couple who died in the stadium, and a honeymoon couple who fell. Some believe that the spirits are from the Hebrew Benevolent Society cemetery, which is located under the stadium. The stadium also has underground vaults, which may explain why the stadium is haunted.
The stadium is also home to a number of ghosts associated with Arsenal FC. Herbert Chapman, who was the manager of the club in the 1920s, is said to be haunted by the stadium. Chapman died of pneumonia in the 1950s.
There is also a story about a stranded 18th-century French sailor, who is said to be a ghost at the stadium. Many people believe that the spirit is a wrecker. However, no one knows for sure.
