    Tim Hardaway has apologized for making a distasteful 'rape' comment during the live broadcast of the Warriors-Spurs game on Monday night after he admitted to having 'barely paid attention' to NBC's pregame meeting that detailed on-air dos and don'ts. In the broadcasting booth for the first time - along with Golden State alumni, Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond - the man once called 'Mr. Crossover' was part of the special 'Run TMC Takeover' for the evening and had been talking about a block from Draymond Green on NBC's Sports Bay channel when he said:  'So y'all thought that was great D? I thought that was just raping him. I think they should call the police on that.'  WHAT DID TIM HARDAWAY JUST SAY ???????????? pic.twitter.com/Tmvsu8cYl4— Chuck Goldberg (@chuckgoldberg) November 15, 2022 Tim Hardway, Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin announced the Spurs-Warriors game last night Hardaway, Richmond and Mullin all played together in the Bay Area from 1989 until 1991 Mullin and Richmond, who were Hardaway's teammates in the Bay Area from 1989 to 1991, did not react to the insensitive comment,...
    Getty Kevin Durant #7 of the Brooklyn Nets walks off the court after the loss to the Indiana Pacers at Barclays Center It was about as ugly as it could get for the Brooklyn Nets on October 29. They lost to the Indian Pacers, 125-116, and it wasn’t a strong showing at all for the Nets, and they came away with the fourth straight loss on Saturday. However, the game was only the start of it. Following the game, the team had a players-only meeting to try to get back on the same page, but it got worse with the postgame comments from Kyrie Irving.  Irving has been in hot water since sharing the link to the 2018 film “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” which is filled with anti-Semitic tropes, according to an article written by Rolling Stone. The move was condemned by the Nets and team governor Joe Tsai. The NBA also released a statement denouncing hate speech, and Kyrie? He called the claim that it was antisemitic ‘not justified.’ On Saturday night after the game, he...
    The wife of Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has arrived at Westminster Abbey to attend the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. Olena Zelenska is representing Ukraine at the ceremonies on behalf of her husband as he continues to lead his nation in its battle against Russian invaders. Clad in all black mourning attire, Zelenska and a handful of Ukrainian delegates filed into the grand 753-year-old Abbey where senior members of The Firm, key figures from British politics and 1,000 VIPs from around the world will pay their final respects during the ceremony. The Ukrainian First Lady is seated next to the aisle in the gothic building, four rows behind French President Emmanuel Macron, who attends the funeral with his wife Brigitte.  Zelenska was one of hundreds of world leaders and foreign delegates who attended the 'reception of the century' hosted by new king Charles last night at Buckingham Palace. Speaking to BBC yesterday, Zelenska said she was paying respects on behalf of all Ukrainians. 'They know the Queen shared the values that Ukraine stands for today: freedom, the right to one's own home,...

Pembroke: Yes, sir, it sure is. Leahy: Just for our listeners, where exactly is the 2nd district? Pembroke: So district 2 is pretty large. It ranges all the way up to Harding Road.

    Mystery surrounds a late night dash to the Kremlin by Vladimir Putin amid suspicions he has prepared a new televised statement on the war in Ukraine and tensions with the West. Video shows his Aurus limousine in a late night dash to his Moscow seat of power at 23:00 on Saturday night. His Kremlin visit immediately followed talks with Belarus leader Alexander Lukashenko in St Petersburg, 440 miles away, in which he agreed to supply advanced nuclear-capable arms to the Minsk dictator. A night of bombardment on Ukrainian cities including Kyiv from Russian warplanes using Belarus airspace followed the meeting. Putin's spokesman did not deny the late night dash to the Kremlin, but ruled out the purpose being a crisis meeting of top officials. He also denied that Putin was to make an immediate emergency statement. Peskov in a late night statement told TASS: 'No. Everything is not like that. Everything is normal.' Yet Peskov did not explain the purpose of Putin's sudden visit. Vladimir Putin's entourage made a late night dash to the Kremlin last night which has sparked...

    Share this: ON THIS DAY IN 1945, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “WASHINGTON (U.P.) — President Harry S. Truman took up the burden of the world’s most powerful office today with a pledge to win the war which Franklin D. Roosevelt’s leadership had carried to the verge of victory. Shocked as all others by news of Mr. Roosevelt’s death, Mr. Truman spoke his promise to the world a few minutes after taking the oath of office last night. ‘The world may be sure,’ he said, ‘that we will prosecute the war on both fronts, east and west, with all the vigor we possess to a successful conclusion.’ Conferences with army and navy leaders are understood to be high on the new President’s list today. The new President took the oath of office at 7:08 last night. Mr. Roosevelt, at 63, had served 12 years, 1 month and 8 days in the office whose cruel exactions killed him, but also stimulated his desire to stay on. No other man had served more than eight years.” *** ON THIS DAY IN 1947,...
    LA sheriffs have arrived at Will Smith's family home amid safety fears after a drone was allegedly sighted over the actor's property, just days after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars. The officers arrived at Smith's mansion in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon, ahead of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences holding an emergency board meeting today to discuss disciplinary action against the star. The academy, which condemned Smith's actions, said it was reviewing the episode but the inquiry is expected to take a few weeks, sources familiar with the matter said. LA County Sherriff's were seen driving through the gates of the Calabasas mansion in a patrol car at 2.40pm after they received a call about an alleged drone sighting over the property. But by the time the officers arrived at the estate, the reported drone had disappeared, the Sheriff's department told the Sun. It comes after View host Whoopi Goldberg, who is also a member of the Academy, said she believes Smith will be able to keep his Oscar following the controversy but he will...
    Will Smith's fate could be decided tomorrow night at a meeting held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Board of Governors - where his onstage assault of Chris Rock at Sunday's Oscars is expected to be the main topic.  Disciplinary action could include anything from forcing him to hand back his Oscar to the most severe punishment - suspension from the Academy - which would put Smith among the ranks of Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, who were both expelled for sexual misconduct. A post-Oscars board meeting is always held to discuss the ceremony and address any concerns, but does not usually happen this soon, the Hollywood Reporter learned.  The decision to hold the meeting was made after the Academy met for an emergency call Monday night about the incident and released a statement announcing a launch of a formal review.     'The Academy condemns the actions of Mr. Smith at last night's show. We have officially started a formal review around the incident and will explore further action and consequences in accordance with our Bylaws, Standards of Conduct and California...
    BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) — Three months after the Marshall Fire devastated Boulder County, most of the money donated to the Community Foundation of Boulder remains unspent. A meeting Monday night will address the distribution of donations to families who lost everything. Mathews home after Marshall Fire (credit: Colorado Parks and Wildlife) About $8 million has gone to fire victims, mental health programs, those who lost jobs and more, but IRS rules prevent the distribution of about $27 million to individual victims, for now. CBS4 Reporter Rick Sallinger spoke to the foundation’s CEO. “What do you say to fire victims who say I need this money now?” Sallinger asked. “There are funds available and hopefully people have made use of those resources,” said Tatiana Hernandez. “We have to make sure that the funds are used for a charitable purpose… that is incredibly difficult to do once those funds are given to an individual directly.” The foundation will be providing an update on the wildfire fund in a meeting Monday at 6:30 p.m. in Superior.
    DENVER (CBS4) – Three Ukrainian refugees bravely shared their stories on Tuesday morning inside U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette’s Denver office. “They experienced the bombing and the first minutes of the war at five o’clock in the morning on February 24,” an interpreter explained. Katerina Khmil, her daughter Tetiana Khmil, and Iryna Rothko all leave families behind, including their husbands and children. They arrived in the U.S. a matter of days ago, after being forced to flee their war-torn home of Ukraine. In total, more than three million Ukrainians have left since the war broke out. “In the beginning, it was total denial,” said Rothko. The women say Ukrainians knew that Russian attacks could be imminent; however, they never thought they’d have to resort to leaving. “One month prior to the war, in school, kids were taught how to hide in the shelter. They were getting prepared for the war,” Rothko said. “That’s how you have to survive,” said Tetiana. “They bomb every single night nonstop.” “It’s heartbreaking watching the women with little kids and older people with the sound of...

    DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — A highly-anticipated meeting Thursday night in Yeadon will determine the future of the borough’s police department.

    OTTAWA, ONTARIO — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is ready to "respond with whatever it takes" to end the Freedom Convoy following a series of late-night meetings with opposition leaders, key Cabinet ministers, and senior officials. The Canadian leader has been under intense pressure from not only politicians in his own country but also from the White House to end the demonstrations against vaccine mandates that have clogged the main arteries into major Canadian cities and blocked multiple bridges, crippling cross-border business. "The prime minister and ministers will continue to work closely with all orders of government and local authorities to respond with whatever it takes to help provinces and municipalities end the blockades and bring the situation under control," his office said in a statement following Thursday's meetings. U.S. officials have urged their Canadian counterparts to use federal powers to put an end to the protest. A White House official said on Thursday that President Joe Biden is "being regularly briefed" on the protests. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gestures during a roundtable discussion with members of the...

    One of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner's most notorious girlfriends says she never had casual sex and was 'kind of asexual' before the first night she slept with the magazine publisher. Holly Madison, 42, says her mom even thought she had Aspergers, a high-functioning form of autism, because she had so much trouble 'connecting with other people.' The former Girls Next Door star said Hefner offered her a Quaalude, a powerful sedative that has been illegal since 1984, the first night she went out with him and his other girlfriends. He allegedly told her, 'they used to call these thigh-openers in the '70s.'  Madison's revelations were featured in the premiere of Secrets of Playboy, a 10-part docuseries on A&E. Hefner died in 2017. His son, Cooper Hefner, has since come out against the documentary, tweeting that the stories are 'a case study of regret becoming revenge.' The documentary claims Hefner would allegedly record journalists who visited the mansion so he could have compromising material against them. A former assistant says he kept a stockpile of Quaaludes and used the amphetamine Dexedrine...
    BOSTON (CBS) — The first time the Patriots met the Bills this season, it came on a memorable weather night in Western New York. The playoff meeting will follow suit.

    BOSTON (CBS) — This year’s postseason will feature a Monday night game to conclude “Super Wild Card Weekend.” Might the Patriots be so fortunate — or unfortunate — to partake? Longtime NFL writer Peter King believes that may be the case.

    Governor Ron DeSantis tore into President Joe Biden's 'clandestine' flights reportedly bringing undocumented migrants to Florida and threatened to send those people to Biden's home state of Delaware during a press conference on Wednesday. He also condemned Biden's 'absurd' double standard in raising concern over the recent migrant crisis on the border between Poland and Belarus while staying silent on the US's own southwest border in a separate statement to DailyMail.com.  Reports that migrants are being flown in to Jacksonville, Florida and other US destinations in the middle of the night surfaced last month on the city's local News 4 Jax.   'So, here's what happens with these flights - there's no notification to the state of Florida. They're done mostly in the middle of the night, and it's clandestine, and we really have no say into it,' DeSantis said on Wednesday. The Republican governor warned, 'My view would be, if they're going to come here, you know, we'll provide buses and provide them. I will send them to Delaware.' 'If [Biden's] not going to support the border being secured, then...

    Actor and guest host Jason Sudeikis teamed up with Saturday Night Live’s James Austin Johnson to play two very different iterations of President Joe Biden — present-day Biden and Biden from eight years ago. “How can you be me? You seem so happy, so carefree,” said present-day Biden. “So — what’s the word I’m looking for?” “Lucid,” answered Sudeikis’ 2013 Biden eagerly. “Well you know where I’m from, we’re still VP. Easiest gig in the world,” he continued. “We’re like America’s whacky neighbor, you know? Just pop in with an ice cream cone, some aviator shades, do some finger guns, you know? Shake a few hands, rub a few shoulders. “Well, you can’t do that anymore,” said present-day Biden. “What, which one? Rubbing shoulders or shaking hands?” Sudeikis’ Biden asked. “Apparently both.” The sketch then went on to have 2013 Biden encourage 2021 Biden to loosen up, as he proceeded to massage other Biden’s shoulders and smell his hair (a reference to Biden coming up from behind and sniffing the hair of women, including Nevada state assemblywoman, Lucy Flores). “The last president ruined...

    Chilling Details About Brittany Murphys Final Days Revealed in New Doc: She Was in So Much Pain How to manage debt with a balance transfer card © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad A report on Tuesday indicated that Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer had reached “a crisis point” within the locker room because of his actions since last Thursday’s loss to the Bengals, including the decision to cancel a team meeting on Monday. That report indicated Meyer has “zero credibility” with the team’s players, which would seem to be a major stumbling block to the project of regaining “trust and respect” that Jaguars owner Shad Khan laid out in a statement. Meyer said on his radio show that conversations with people in the organization have been “horrible” before moving on to say that “the ownership of this team is with the players” in terms of being able to move forward. Meyer took another shot at getting things back on track on Wednesday morning. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that...

The guidelines stated: 'Free speech is uniquely important to the University because we are a community committed to reason and rational discourse.

    BRITAIN is looking to join the US’s free-trade deal with Mexico and Canada as hopes wither of a one-on-one deal. Boris Johnson hoped to kickstart stalling US trade talks during his visit to Joe Biden at the White House last night. 2Boris Johnson hoped to kickstart stalling US trade talks during his visit to Joe Biden at the White House last nightCredit: PA But the PM was yesterday unable to say a post-Brexit agreement with Washington could be signed before the next election in 2024 — after admitting the US had other “fish to fry”. The north-American USMCA pact is a Trump-era low tariff and quota agreement and seen as a “backdoor” to a full UK/US bilateral accord.
