Eddy Alvarez 上星期四抵達東京，作爲美國棒球隊的一個成員，參加奧運會。今年31嵗的Alvarez同時還是美國隊在開幕式入場時的舉旗手之一。他有非常奇特的背景。他在2014年俄羅斯索契冬季奧運會中，參加的是冰上速滑比賽，並拿下了5千米短程的銀牌。 作爲居住在佛羅里達的古巴移民後裔，他有幸成爲冬季奧運史上第一個古巴裔美國男性運動員參加比賽。更多詳細文字和圖片内容請進入《今日話題》Facebook 臉書專頁：https://www.facebook.com/1300todaystopic/

On LGHL's Play Like a Girl podcast, Meredith Hein and Kelsey Trainor talk everything from Ohio State football to all the happenings in the sports world today. After being delayed for a very long year, the 2021 Tokyo Olympics are here at long last. That's why, on this week's edition of the pod, Meredith and Megan talked all things Olympics. ICYMI, the Opening Ceremonies are scheduled for this Friday, and Team USA just announced that hoops great Sue Bird and baseball player/speed skater (you read that right) Eddy Alvarez will be flag bearers. Great choices all-around (get it? Because of gymnastics?) The pair also discussed the USWNT's surprising loss to Sweden in their first Olympic game, snapping a 44-game unbeaten streak. On a more positive note, they got into Team USA softball, and the team of newcomers and veterans who are coming together to bring home a gold after the sport was absent for two-straight Olympic Games. But because it's this podcast, Megan and Meredith also talked Buckeyes in the Olympics — including Adelaide Aquilla, the walk-on-turned-Olympian shot putter, and all-time wrestling great Kyle Snyder.

By now, it's likely that you have seen some sort of political infographic on social media. It has a pastel background, a few words in a bolded font and claims to break down a political issue in just a few sliding pictures. It's effective spread of information often comes at the cost of reliability and truthfulness. So, is getting our news and information from social media a net good? We sit down with infographic creator Teddy Alvarez-Nissen to understand the process behind infographics and the way to treat them going forward.

More recent standouts in this farm system include outfielder Milton Smith II, left-hander Trevor Rogers and unhittable rookie Jordan Yamamoto (34:45). Ian selects Chris Vallimont (45:40) and Eddy Alvarez (46:30) for his pitcher and hitter of the week awards. Shortstop Nasim Nuñez and outfielder Víctor Mesa Jr. are quickly developing great chemistry with one another in the Gulf Coast League (49:00), while speedy Wright State product J.D. Orr could be the biggest steal of the Marlins draft class (54:00). Follow Fish Stripes (@fishstripes), Danny (@DannyM_MIA), Ethan (@GatorBait_Ethan) and Ian (@FlaSmitty) on Twitter.

Eddy Alvarez is an American short track speed skater who represented the United States at the 2014 Winter Olympics. That isn't Eddy's only accomplishment. He's also a professional baseball player for The Birmingham Barons, a minor league affiliate for the Chicago White Sox. He took to roller skating at the age of 5 and began speed skating at 7 years old. In high school, Alvarez took a break from skating to focus on his love for baseball which earned him a college scholarship. Now he's able to live out both his dreams, an Olympic Speed Skater and a Professional Baseball Player.
