Galaxy’s Cobi Jones to retire

first_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cobi Jones planned to retire before the 2007 season — but when the Los Angeles Galaxy signed David Beckham, he decided to play another year. Jones, a pioneer on the U.S. national team during the 1990s, said Monday he will retire after the 2007 Major League Soccer season. When Jones originally let his intentions be known to Tim Leiweke, president and chief executive officer of Galaxy owner AEG, Leiweke interrupted him to say Beckham might be joining the Galaxy. “And Cobi said, At the end of this next season,’” Leiweke related, smiling. The 5-foot-7 Jones, who wears distinctive dreadlocks and is quick with a smile, said he’s had a great career, and “I want to go out on a high — with a championship.” Jones, who turns 37 in June, first played for the United States in 1992 and last played in four games for the national team in 2004. He has 15 goals in a U.S. record 164 international appearances, and he played every minute of the U.S. games at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, as well as appearing during the 2002 tournament. He had the Galaxy’s first goal in MLS’s inaugural season, scoring in the 37th minute of the opening day victory over the MetroStars in 1996. He has appeared in 281 games for the Galaxy, with 66 goals and 86 assists — all team records. Los Angeles has made the MLS championship game five times, winning the title in 2002 and 2005. Galaxy general manager Alexi Lalas, formerly Jones’ teammate with the national team and the Galaxy, said soccer in America owes a debt of gratitude to Jones, calling him a “soccer icon.” “It is because of players like Cobi Jones that our team, our league and our sport has survived and thrived,” Lalas said. Jones, who was a walk-on at UCLA, had to prove many critics wrong on his way to becoming one of the country’s best players. “When he first went out for soccer, when he was 7, the coach told us that Cobi couldn’t play the game, so he should give it up and try something else,” Jones’ father, Freeman Jones, recalled. Mada Jones, Cobi’s mother, said, “He was determined. He came home and started kicking the ball against the stair steps again and again, going up step three, then step four.” Freeman Jones shook his head and said, “Who would have guessed back then?”last_img read more

Man who wrote ‘IRA’ in Garda station with own faeces jailed for 8 months

first_imgA man who wrote ‘IRA’ in large letters on a Garda station cell with his own faeces has been jailed for a total of eight months.Joseph Colhoun appeared at Letterkenny District Court charged with a series of offences. The charges included assaulting Gardai, damaging a van, damaging a Garda cell, breaking neighbour’s windows, being intoxicated and assault.The offences all happened between last September and February of this year when Colhoun’s addiction to alcohol spiralled out of control.The court was told by Colhoun’s solicitor Frank Dorrian that his client had lost so many people who had meant so much to him.He initially lost his mother in 2012 to cancer and she had been his guiding light.However, the loss of his brother and then his father Ruby following two separate tragedies when they both drowned in the same stretch of the River Mourne was too much for him to take.Mr Dorrian said “He has been on a collision course and his ideation in recent times has been very dark and unwelcome and he has attempted self-harm.”However, he added that since being in custody he has tried to turn his life around and has been attending bereavement counselling and plans to attend an alcohol rehabilitation centre when he gets out of prison.“He had been utterly and hopelessly out of control but he is a different man today. He is genuinely contrite and is in a better frame of mind,” he added.Garda Sgt Gerard Dalton outlined the litany of offences against the father-of-four of Beechwood Grove, Lifford who already had 43 previous convictions before these charges.The first offence happened on September 1st last year when he was caught swinging a hammer above his head outside his former partner’s house.Gardai arrived and tried to calm him down but he became violent and struck one of them with his head and threatened to bite and headbutt another when arrested.When taken to Letterkenny Gada station he smeared the letters IRA in large writing on the cell wall with his faeces.He was also charged with breaking into a local psychiatric institution where his brother was being treated on March 4th last and then attacking a stranger’s van causing €1,691 worth of damage for no reason.On February 17th he attacked staff at Daly’s Filling Station in Lifford because they would not serve him alcohol at 5.30am.A letter written by Colhoun was handed into Judge Paul Kelly to read.Passing sentence and jailing Colhoun for eight months, Judge Kelly remarked “I hear where you are coming from but the number of offences you have committed, the injury and damage you have caused to a number of people has made it impossible for me to deal with this in any other way than with a custodial sentence.“I will leave you some hope for the future when you do get out.”Man who wrote ‘IRA’ in Garda station with own faeces jailed for 8 months was last modified: April 26th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtdonegalfaecesGardajailJoseph Colhounletterkennystationlast_img read more
