From football, to ice hockey, 
a new infographic reveals the odds 
of becoming a pro player

Have you ever dreamed of hitting a home run in front of a packed stadium screaming your name? 

How about nailing a mid range jump shot as the crowd goes wild? 

For most of us, our sporting fantasies are reserved for teenage daydreams and idle hours in the office. 

For the upper echelons of the sporting world, however, these sports stardom daydreams have become a reality.

So how many young aspiring Maya Moores and Mike Trouts ever make it to the Big Leagues? 

In a brand new infographic has crunched the numbers and digested the data to reveal the exact odds of making it to the top of your game, whether you're into baseball, soccer, ice hockey football or basketball.

Averaged out across the six sports which investigated, the data reveals that aspiring players have a 1 in 6,608 chance of being drafted from high school.

The infographic also reveals that there are some sports for which the daydreams are almost certainly “pie in the sky,” while for others the dreams seem slightly more attainable. 

A final revelation of's infographic is the disparity between men's sports and women's sports. 

Women's basketball was shown to be the toughest sport to go pro in (just 1 in 13,542 are drafted from high school), while also carrying the lowest average salary ($75,000compared to the $5.15 million of male players).

So how do the rest of the US's favourite sports measure up? 

Here are the chances of getting drafted into each from high school and the average salary for each sport:
  • Men's ice hockey: 1 in 590 - Avg. salary: $2.4 million
  • Men's baseball: 1 in 679 Avg. salary: $3.2 million
  • Men's football: 1 in 4,287 Avg. salary: $1.9 million
  • Men's soccer: 1 in 5,797 Avg. salary: $250,000
  • Men's basketball: 1 in 11,512 Avg. salary: $5.15 million
  • Women's basketball: 1 in 13,542 Avg. salary: $75,000
A huge range of factors influence which sports are the most difficult to break into. 

From the popularity of the sport and the gender of the players, to the number of players drafted in each year. 

Just 32 women are drafted into women's basketball teams annually, while 638 men are drafted into baseball.

Ice hockey, meanwhile is an outlier. 

Although just 60 players are drafted in annually, the chances of making it onto a professional team from a college team are a comparatively low 1 in 66. 

The reason? 

With so much equipment and facilities required, ice hockey is a sport which many cannot afford to get into at a young age. 

If you're lucky enough to get started early, your chances of making it are higher than in any other sport on our list.

Whether you youngster is in a high school team or you play at college level yourself, this amazing infographic will tell you exactly which odds you need to beat to finally achieve sports hero status. 

If you happen to be one in 6,608, you may just stand a chance.

Blue Healer Premieres New Single BAD WEATHER On All Things Go

Premieres New Single "Bad Weather" 
On All Things Go,

**Set To Release Debut Self-Titled Album On September 9**

Watch "Luminescent Eyes" on Paste Magazine & "Only The Rain" on PopMatters
"Their sound meshes together the shiny accessibility of synthpop with the down-and-dirty aesthetic of basement rock."
- Consequence of Sound
"'Only The Rain' steadily builds into an indie rock power ballad with shiny pops of synths and a blast of the drums."
- American Songwriter
"With songs that fall into mesmerizing grooves, Blue Healer's sound scratches an itch we never knew we had."
- Austin Monthly
Spreading 'pop music with teeth,' danceable indie-rock trio Blue Healer teamed up with All Things Go to premiere their new single "Bad Weather" on Aug. 30. 

Listen to the new song exclusively on All Things Go, here:

Blue Healer will be releasing their debut self-titled album on September 9. 

Surrounding the release, Blue Healer will be touring the U.S. with dates alongside The Ballroom Thieves and will make an appearance at Week 2 of Austin City Limits Music Festival. 

For more information and to pre-order the album, please visit:

Blue Healer recently teamed up with PopMatters to premiere their music video for "Only The Rain," a single that originally debuted via American Songwriter.

"Only The Rain" released on the heels of Blue Healer's first single "Luminescent Eyes," which exclusively debuted via Consequence of Sound earlier this year. 

The world has only heard 3 songs by Blue Healer ("30,000 ft", "Luminescent Eyes", "Only The Rain"), and will soon get the chance to hear 10 more with the release of their upcoming self-titled album.

Born out of the belief that music should be fun, Blue Healer cruised into the Austin scene in 2015 with the ease of your first high school set of wheels - the wheels you got to second-base in on a neon-tinged Friday night. 

Mixing distorted upright bass, shimmering guitar, analog synths, and drums, the Texas native trio blends a unique mesh of indie rock and dance sounds with the familiar fabric of classic songwriting. 

Picture the face of pop accessibility with the teeth of basement rock n' roll - the songs sink in and don't let go.

Before they formed Blue Healer, members David Beck (bass/guitar/vox), Bryan Mammel (keys/vox) and Dees Stribling (drums/vox) all played and toured nationally together in previous projects, including Austin-based Sons of Fathers, where David was a primary singer and writer.

Blue Healer creates a big, unforgettable live performance that you won't want to miss. 

Keep an eye out for Blue Healer's debut self-titled album, which is set to release on September 9.

See what press is saying about SABATON's The Last Stand:
"Most diverse SABATON war ever!ˮ
- SPARK (CZ), David Havlena

"Everything SABATON stand for, compressed on 37 exciting minutes! The Last Stand goes straight forward without off-time, delivers hit after hit in the famous SABATON style, but still provides enough space for new sounds and surprises.ˮ
- METAL HAMMER (D), Sebastian Kessler

"Best SABATON record so far. The Last Stand has a better sound, bombastic vocals and a future crowd favorite called 'The Lost Battalion'."
- AARDSCHOK (NL), Michael van Rijswijk

Formed in Falun, Sweden in 1999, SABATON is best known for singing almost exclusively about historical wars and battles, a direction the band members decided to take on after watching the 1999 Academy Award-winning film Saving Private Ryan. The band thoroughly researches their topics to ensure the songs paint accurate and objective portraits of the historical event they're singing about, which are narrated from an omniscient point-of-view or in first-person as a soldier caught in the line of fire. Like their home country of Sweden, SABATON aims to remain politically neutral in their role as musical war historians. SABATON have reached their unshaken position as heavy metal's AAA-torchbearer after releasing ingenious studio recordings and playing endless amount of unforgettable live shows. The Last Stand is another unquestionable and bulletproof evidence of SABATON's top class abilities and it will be followed by the band's most gigantic world tour to date.

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort Starts Sept. 9, as Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror Begins its Final Check-out Celebration

Halloween Thrills Also Include New 'Frightfully Fun Parade' at Mickey's Halloween Party, Plus Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort offers two new reasons for guests to visit this year­­––a special celebration at The Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror with a chance to "drop in" like never before, and the debut of the "Frightfully Fun Parade" at Mickey's HalloweenParty, a separate-ticket event. 

The parade features some popular Disney villains and a procession of grim, grinning ghosts, while The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow appears for the first time at Mickey's Halloween Party.

Those treats add to the family-friendly thrills, popular seasonal attractions and spooky decor that make Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort so magical. The season runs from Sept. 9, through Oct. 31, offering the popular Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy attractions, themed foods and merchandise, plus spirited decor that features a giant Mickey Mouse jack-'o-lantern on Main Street, U.S.A.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Final Check-out Celebration at Disney California Adventure Park
The invitation to check into the Hollywood Tower Hotel is even more urgent now as The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror approaches its final check-out date, Jan. 2, 2017. A special tribute begins Sept. 9 to salute the haunted hotel's eerie story and exciting adventure at Disney California Adventure Park. During the celebration, guests who arrive after twilight will enjoy "Late Check-Out"–-a chance to venture beyond the fifth dimension into complete darkness. It's something guests have never experienced before: free-falling in the attraction's haunted elevator shaft with all the lights out.

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror celebration also includes special musical performances, commemorative merchandise and specialty food and beverage items. Performing at the Hollywood Tower Hotel are the Silver Lake Sisters, characters from the story of this famous hotel who once performed at its rooftop lounge. The sisters make their return to the Hollywood Hotel during Halloween season.

Spooky Halloween Traditions at Disneyland Park
Throughout the Halloween season, guests will find special treats and thrilling traditions. Haunted Mansion Holiday returns to celebrate the collision between Halloween and Christmas, and a familiar guest moves into the Mansion: Jack Skellington from the Walt Disney Pictures classic "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas."
  • Jack Skellington brings a unique spark to the season and, for the first time, his friend Sally joins him in the Mansion graveyard. 
  • The annual Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house is back with a new theme. This year's version appears to have been stitched together from pieces of other gingerbread houses and treats. In fact, the ghoulish architect has stitched himself inside the house, and one green arm still may be spotted, sewing the walls together around him. 
  • Another Halloween favorite is Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, a Halloween-themed reimagining of the popular thrill ride in Tomorrowland, at Disneyland. Guests on board the speeding Space Mountain vehicles are thrust into a ghostly galaxy where they are bombarded with eerie screams, sound effects and music. Spine-chilling spirits pop out of the darkness, appearing to reach out to menace the space travelers. 
  • The traditional Mexican celebration, "Dia de los Muertos," is observed with a skeleton display in Frontierland, near Rancho del Zocalo restaurant. 
  • As a special, after-dark treat during the Halloween season, guests visiting Disneyland on select nights will enjoy the "Fantasy in the Sky" fireworks spectacular. 
  • During the day, the dynamic "Mickey's Soundsational Parade" marches down Main Street, U.S.A., throughout Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort.
Mickey's Halloween Party
New this year at Mickey's Halloween Party is the premiere of the "Frightfully Fun Parade," seen exclusively on the 17 nights of this separately ticketed event at Disneyland.
  • The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow (from the Disney animated classic "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad") brings a warning to guests, riding through the park on his ghostly black steed with a flickering jack-'o-lantern. 
  • Shortly afterward, the parade begins with greetings from Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas." 
  • Grim, grinning (and hitchhiking) ghosts follow along in the procession, joined by other spirits from the iconic Haunted Mansion attraction. 
  • Inspired by Disney's "The Princess and the Frog," the creepy Dr. Facilier calls on mystical powers, summoning his Shadow Men from the bayou to loom large over his strange and twisted Voodoo parlor. 
  • Mischievous Disney villains appear out of the darkness, ready to stir up some trouble, and their wicked gathering includes the Evil Queen, Jafar and Cruella.
Mickey's Halloween Party guests are invited to visit in costume and trick-or-treat throughout Disneyland for candy and healthy snacks. 

An extra special treat is the "Halloween Screams" fireworks spectacular, presented exclusively for guests of Mickey's Halloween Party and hosted by "Master of Scare-omonies" Jack Skellington.

Additional top sponsors include AT&T; American Airlines, the official airline of AFI; and VIZIO, the official home theater sponsor of AFI.

An aspiring young actress (Lily Collins) and her ambitious young driver (Alden Ehrenreich) struggle hopefully with the absurd eccentricities of the wildly unpredictable billionaire (Warren Beatty) for whom they work.

It's Hollywood, 1958. Small town beauty queen and devout Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Collins), under contract to the infamous Howard Hughes (Beatty), arrives in Los Angeles. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Ehrenreich), who is engaged to be married to his 7th grade sweetheart and is a deeply religious Methodist. Their instant attraction not only puts their religious convictions to the test, but also defies Hughes' number one rule: no employee is allowed to have any relationship whatsoever with a contract actress. Hughes' behavior intersects with Marla and Frank in very separate and unexpected ways, and as they are drawn deeper into his bizarre world, their values are challenged and their lives are changed.

To learn more about RULES DON'T APPLY, visit the film's official website at In theaters November 23.

THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX En El Cine El 2 De Septiembre

No se pierdan a Jaime Dornan 
y Aaron Paul en 
"The 9th Life of Louis Drax"

Después de sobrevivir a ocho accidentes casi fatales a lo largo de su desafortunada vida, Louis Drax [Aiden Longworth] se precipita desde un alto acantilado en su noveno cumpleaños.

Mientras la policía investiga la causa de la caída que casi provoca la muerte de Louis y el paradero de Peter [Aaron Paul], su violento padre, un aclamado neurólogo, el Dr. Allan Pascal [Jamie Dornan], usa técnicas poco convencionales para intentar acceder al inconsciente del niño y revelar la verdad sobre los eventos que lo llevaron a este estado.

Pero mientras se ve atraído cada vez más por el misterio de la aparente habilidad de Louis de engañar a la muerte, el doctor también empieza a enamorarse de la madre del niño, Natalie [Sarah Gadon].

A medida que aparecen nuevas pistas en el caso, una sorprendente revelación cambia el destino de Louis Drax y de todos los que lo rodean.
