There is something about ByuN that makes him perhaps South Koreas most lovable pro gamer. The guy radiates personality.Take the GSL Code S finals for instance. ByuN requested to have a giant picture of his favorite player, Lee INnoVation Shin Hyung, in the crowd, rather than a picture of himself. ByuN admired both his skills and his cold, emotionless persona. Its funny that the player he looks up to the most is the opposite of himself. Theyre both top-of-the-world Terrans, but thats where the similarities end.People constantly joke that INnoVation is actually some sort of robot. ... And mechanically speaking, there isnt a better player. For INnoVation, it all seems like another day in the office. He shows up, plays the game, and gives an almost factory-produced interview, seemingly indifferent to the fact that he just won an important match.A total lack of emotion is almost INnoVations trademark. And ByuN couldnt be more different.With each match win at GSL Code S this past season, ByuN exploded with emotion. During his interviews, he would beam and admit openly that with each win, it was the best day of his life. During the Round of 4, ByuN had to speak for himself during the coachs interview, seeing as he was teamless and had no actual coach. ByuN played the part, acting out the role with enthusiasm. He even gave Coach ByuN a shout-out in a later winners interview.ByuN seems to have no shame about his failings. Despite being a professional level player since the very beginning of StarCraft II, hes gone through many years without any major success. Hes admitted to thinking he was a good player, but couldnt win when it mattered. Hes also acknowledged that he has problems with his nerves. At one point, he said he lost faith in his skills.And for any StarCraft player, there is nothing more relatable. Players have no teammates to blame their losses on. There are no random factors that will give way to an unavoidable loss. StarCraft, more than any other video game, makes players question their skills, their intelligence. You are the reason you lost. You werent good enough. Thats it. To have an actual champion talk openly about a feeling that transcends the playing field is amazing.ByuN has been a contender almost since the beginning but vanished from professional play from October 2013 to January 2016. When he came back, it was on a whim with no expectations, but during the second GSL Code S season, he made history. To win a tournament after missing years of competition is hard enough. To win a tournament without the support of a team ... its just never been done in South Korea.ByuNs struggled and come to the absolute edge of giving up, but has continued on. And now its time for him to do it again. With BlizzCon quickly approaching, ByuN has once again thrown the Korean StarCraft Rulebook into the wind. While most pros are hiding their practice regimen, ByuN publicly streams ladder sessions on, some days for 12 or more hours. He is relentless in his practice, showing the dedication it takes to get one of these:No one going to BlizzCon is going to out-practice ByuN. In fact, no one will out-micro, out-heart, or even out-personality ByuN. In fact, he may just be the overall favorite, and the fan-favorite at the upcoming World Championships. That being said, there are some points of potential weakness he has. Based on his play in tournaments this year as well as his recent streaming, ByuN likes the strategies he likes. Sometimes, thats not always a good thing.He has some intelligent branches planned out, but it would be a mistake to call his play strategically innovative. ByuN will more than likely be relying on the crispness of his play and godliness of his micro to take down BlizzCon. This leaves the door open for his opponents to play a more strategically-based game plan. It wont be easy, though. ByuNs play is so in your face, so well microd, and so efficient, that his opponents will need near-perfect execution to take him down.No matter how you look at it, ByuN is the South Korean player to watch at BlizzCon this year. Air Max 270 Habanero Red . After Martin Skrtel put the Reds in front from close range at Stamford Bridge after only four minutes, Hazard hit back in the 17th with a superb strike. Etoo gave Jose Mourinhos team a decisive lead from Oscars back pass in the 34th. Air Max 270 Flyknit Clear Emerald . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. . -- Nathan Pancel scored twice as the Sudbury Wolves defeated the North Bay Battalion 4-2 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Air Max 270 Flyknit White And Black . -- The Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake played to a 0-0 tie Saturday night that left the top of the Western Conference standings unchanged. Air Max 270 React Blue . According the Toronto Star, a knee injury will keep Sundin out of the lineup, which includes former teammates Gary Roberts, Darcy Tucker, Tie Domi and Curtis Joseph. AVONDALE, Ariz. -- Karma has a funny way of coming back around. Just ask Joey Logano.A little more than 12 months ago, Logano was eliminated from the 2015 NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup when Matt Kenseth intentionally wrecked him at Martinsville Speedway, an attack made in retribution for a prior incident between the two a few weeks earlier at Kansas Speedway.On Sunday, Kenseth was the driver who got wrecked -- pretty much by his own teammate -- opening the door for Logano to win the Can-Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway. More importantly, the timely victory landed Logano among the four drivers who will compete for the 2016 Sprint Cup next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Logano and the No. 22 Team Penske Ford were often the dominant combination of the 2015 season, and he was bitterly disappointed that after Kenseth wrecked him at Martinsville, he didnt get the opportunity to compete for the crown.But thanks to the incredible events that went down late in Sundays race at Phoenix, hell get that chance next week for the second time in the three years that NASCARs Chase has been run using the current 16-driver elimination format.At Phoenix, Kenseth looked to be cruising to an uncontested victory while Logano was desperately trying to hold off Kevin Harvick for the fourth-place finish he needed to qualify for the Homestead finale on points.As Kenseth sped around to take the white flag, the yellow flew instead as Michael McDowell crashed in Turn 3. Suddenly, Kenseth had to contend with a restart.It didnt go well. Kenseth got a good jump into Turn 1, but when Alex Bowman turned down to block a charging Kyle Busch, Buschs car bumped Bowmans car. The contact unsettled Bowmans Chevrolet enough to send it sliding into Kenseths Toyota, which spun into the Turn 1 wall while Logano and Busch sped past.An additional restart held no drama for Logano, who easily held off Busch in a green-white-checkered finish.It was Loganos 17th career Cup Series race win, and his seventh in the Chase since the elimination format was introduced in 2014. That tops all drivers, and hes still just 26 years old.Man, this feels so good! Logano exclaimed in his Victory Lane television interview. Ive never felt this good about a win before. I feel like I won the Daytona 500 again. Theres so much on the line, and everybody brings their A-game when it comes to winning championships.Were racing for a championship now, he added. We did exactly what we had to do. Were going to go to Homestead and do the same thing.Team owner Roger Penske has the unique opportunity to win both the IndyCar Series championship and NASCARs top championship in the year that Team Penske is celebrating its 50th anniversarry in competition.ddddddddddddSimon Pagenaud won Penskes 14th Indy car title earlier this year, but Penske has achieved less success in stock car racing. Brad Keselowski earned Team Penskes only Cup Series title to date in 2012.Now Logano will represent the legendary team in a championship finale one more time.I guess we can say were going to Homestead, Penske remarked. Today the team really was disciplined, they executed the pit stops and Joeys restarts were classic Logano -- nobody was able to be as cool as he was to take the position.The outcome wasnt the outcome until the overtime, Penske added. I think this proves just how good he is to continually get the job done for us.Logano is convinced that he and his team led by crew chief Todd Gordon have what it takes to prevail in the final four shootout next week at Homestead. His competition includes Busch, fellow Joe Gibbs Racing driver Carl Edwards?and six-time Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson.In his other championship final experience in 2014, Logano finished 16th at Homestead, last among the four Chase contenders. He vows that will not happen again.We have experience now, Logano stated. Weve been together four years or so, and weve gone through some hard situations together as a team and not much has changed. They do a good job of keeping their head straight and a lot of that comes from Todd.Were peaking at the right time, which is a good sign, Logano continued. Weve had some speed the last three races. Texas was one of our best races of the year and to go to a racetrack thats very similar to that makes me excited. We know what it takes to win a championship because weve been through that situation once before. Ive been saying throughout this Chase that I hope were in that situation because we know how to handle it. Today we were in that situation and we won the race, and I cant wait to put my team in that situation again.Its hard to think of a 26-year-old as a grizzled veteran, but Logano has already been racing at the Cup level for eight full years.The kid once known as Sliced Bread seems to realize that a driver often needs to lose a championship to learn how to win one.Hell get that chance in one weeks time.Weve got momentum, he acknowledged. I remember the last time we got through to Homestead, I wasnt this excited. I was immediately nervous.This is not that feeling, he added. I have confidence this time. I know we can do it. I dont feel its a long shot like the last time, when it was the first time I was racing for a championship.This time I feel like weve been there before. ' ' '
