M angel to tact and sense of proportion, little serenity, instead of exaggerated urge to achieve; one of the most powerful features in the world, Donald Trump.

However, the Chemnitz historian Frank-Lothar Kroll, when he formulated this description, by no means the 45th US President in mind, but a very different powerful man: Wilhelm II, the King of Prussia and German Emperor by the grace of God.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is expected to make a pair of trips to Japan later this year, first to meet the country’s new Emperor and then for the G20 summit, according to an administration official.

Trump spoke with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe Wednesday morning in advance of his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next week, the White House said.

The president will travel to Japan in May to meet with the new Emperor, Crown Prince Naruhito, whose accession is May 1, the official said. He’ll return in late June for a summit of the Group of 20 industrialized nations.

Trump is to meet Kim in Hanoi next week to again discuss a possible agreement under which Pyongyang would give up its nuclear arsenal. Abe has previously pressed Trump to also raise the issue of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea and Pyongyang’s intermediate-range missiles that can target Japan.

Auburn fans on the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium after 2013’s Kick Six, which made for a signature Bramblett call.

Auburn’s radio announcer provided the soundtrack for some of the best moments this sport’s ever had.

We spend a good amount of time here talking about college football’s common threads. This is such a personal sport, and it’s easy to spend all of your time in your own little hole, talking about your team, your inevitably terrible offensive coordinator, your cheatin’ rivals, etc. But the more you become a fan of college football as a whole, the healthier your fan existence becomes. There is just so much random joy and silliness to be found.

What’s funny is, one of the most personal, school-specific pieces of a fan’s universe — the play-by-play homer announcer — is one of the things any fan in the country can relate to. Inevitably biased. Personal curator of our favorite moments as a fan.

As a Missouri fan, I think of the famous 2007 Mizzou-Kansas game through the filter of radio guy Mike Kelly’s “Safety! Ballgame! Bingo!” and of Henry Josey’s 2013 SEC East-clinching touchdown as “Henry Josey! Angleton, Texas! Explodes for 57 yards!” As a fan of School X, you’re almost inevitably thinking about your favorite plays and your radio guy’s calls right now as well.

It is because of this thread that we can all relate so directly with the loss of Auburn’s Rod Bramblett. Bramblett and his wife, Paula, died in a two-car accident near campus on Memorial Day weekend, leaving the Auburn family, obviously, in shock.

Bramblett succeeded a legend in his own right when Jim Fyffe unexpectedly passed away in 2003, and he quickly made the space his own. He was on the mic for “Go Crazy, Cadillac” in 2004, and he was the voice behind Auburn’s 2019 Final Four hoops run as well. And in between, he helped give the college football universe two of its most amazing moments:

1.

“Alright, here we go, fourth- and-18 for the Tigers. Here’s your ballgame. Nick Marshall … stands in … steps up … gonna throw downfield, just a home run ball, and it is tipped up and LOUIS CAUGHT IT ON THE DEFLECTION. LOUIS IS GONNA SCORE. LOUIS IS GONNA SCORE. LOUIS IS GONNA SCORE. TOUCHDOWN, AUBURN. TOUCHDOWN, AUBURN. A MIRACLE AT JORDAN-HARE. A MIRACLE AT JORDAN-HARE. SEVENTY-THREE YARDS. AND THE TIGERS, WITH 25 SECONDS TO GO, LEAD 43-38.”

On the evening of November 16, 2013, in one of the five best games of the decade, Auburn had just blown a 20-point lead to rival Georgia. The Tigers’ hopes of a dark-horse SEC West title run had vanished when UGA’s Aaron Murray scored a controversial fourth-down touchdown. Facing fourth-and-long with 36 seconds left, Auburn needed a miracle and got one. And Bramblett’s dexterity, his ability to go from steady to apoplectic in the time it takes to flip a light switch, took it from miraculous to part of college football’s fabric.

Of course, this was only the second-most legendary finish at Jordan-Hare that month.

“Chris Davis is gonna drop back into the end zone, a single safety. I guess if this thing comes up short, he can field it and run it out. Alright, here we go … 56-yarder … it’s got … no … does not have the leg. And Chris Davis takes it in the back of the end zone. He’ll run it out to the 10 … 15 … 20 … 25, 30 … 35, 40 … 45, 50 … 45 THERE GOES DAVIS. DAVIS IS GONNA RUN IT ALL THE WAY BACK. AUBURN’S GONNA WIN THE FOOTBALL GAME. AUBURN’S GONNA WIN THE FOOTBALL GAME. HE RAN THE MISSED FIELD GOAL BACK. HE RAN IT BACK A HUNDRED AND NINE YARDS. THEY’RE NOT GONNA KEEP ‘EM OFF THE FIELD TONIGHT. HOLY COW. OH MY GOD. AUBURN WINS.”

Just two weeks after Ricardo Louis caught it on the deflection, Chris Davis dropped back into the end zone, just in case. Auburn had tied top-ranked Alabama in the final minute, and a back-and-forth classic appeared destined for overtime. But first, Alabama had one second left to attempt a super-long field goal.

This return went from “fun chaos” to “oh my god, this is going to happen” when Davis escaped the wash on the sideline without stepping out of bounds. Bramblett, who couldn’t possibly have suspected this was going to happen, who couldn’t possibly have rehearsed the scenario in his head before the kick, called it perfectly, again going from stable to OH MY GOD in a heartbeat. While not even his color man could provide anything but incoherent screaming, and while Jordan-Hare had become an exultant mass lifting off of the ground, Bramblett translated chaos into English.

These two moments have never failed to give me goosebumps, to make my eyes a little glossy. They encompass everything about why we follow this sport, why we put up with its nonsense. This was pure, ringing joy, and while Verne Lundquist’s CBS calls were great in themselves, they weren’t this.

I ache for Auburn at this loss, but this shouldn’t just feel personal for Auburn fans, and this wasn’t just a loss in Southeastern Alabama. Bramblett was officially a member of college football history, a contributor to its lore. His death is a personal loss for all of us.

This post is part of a series of Queerty interviews with models, trainers, dancers, and, well, people who inspire us to stay in shape–0r just sit on the couch ogling them instead.

Name: Alena Scarver, 35

City: Chicago, IL

Occupation: Full-time trainer. No other job.

Favorite Gym: My favorite gym is CrossFit Severance at 2545 W. Diversey. My favorite exercises are power snatches and Turkish Get Ups.

Favorite Work Out Outfit: My best outfits are anything neon colored and spandex shorts.

Favorite Work Out Playlist: 90s music mainly, all 90s R&B and hip-hop.

Basic Workout Tip: A basic tip I can offer others is to find what works for you. Don’t fixate on numbers and what others are doing. Find what you like to do and keep at it. If it makes you feel good inside then it won’t feel like fitness. Fitness should never feel like a second job that you hate showing up for.

How do you balance staying in shape and having fun?

It’s easy for me to balance fitness and fun. Most of my fun activities are fitness based. I’m a Division Two rugby player for the Chicago Sirens and I’m a 2nd-degree black belt in Tang So Do. And I love long bike rides and nature walks.

What do you keep on your nightstand?

The only things I keep on my nightstand are books I read. Currently, I’m reading, Invisible: The Forgotten Story of the Black Woman Lawyer Who Took Down America’s Most Powerful Mobster. 

P.S. I’m a nerd.

Donald Trump presented a trophy to the winner of a sumo tournament, turning to personal diplomacy for the second day of a Japan visit shadowed by tough trade talk. But it was all smiles as the two leaders watched giant sumo wrestlers grapple on the final day of a 15-day tournament won by rising star Asanoyama. Trump, the first US president to watch sumo in the sport’s homeland, waved to the audience as he entered the hallowed Kokugikan arena and then saluted them with applause as they waved and raised their phones to take photos.

Li Huanwu is the nephew of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, and grandson of the country’s first prime minister, Lee Kuan. This week, he married his partner, Heng Yirui, in a private ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa.

The guys made the big announcement on their social media pages.

Yirui, who works as a veterinarian, posted a photo himself and Huanwu wearing matching khaki pants and white button downs with an elephant standing in the background, along with the caption: “Today I marry my soul mate. Looking forward to a lifetime of moments like this with @hero.unit.”

Because everyone should be photographed on their wedding day with an elephant standing in the background!

Meanwhile, Huanwu took to Facebook to share the exciting news, posting several pictures of the couple enjoying their time together at Mana Pools National Park.

Happy couple

Couple 3

In a Facebook post, Yirui wrote: “Today I marry my soul mate,” Yirui wrote. “The journey has been a great one with the love and support of friends and family.”

“Here’s to a lifetime of loving companionship and good cheer!”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
