    BRUNO FERNANDES has revealed one of the secrets behind his uncanny ability to find space on the pitch - he marks the ref! The Manchester United playmaker says his playing style involves finding "dead zones" - which are often the areas occupied by the match official. 1Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes speaks to ref Mike Dean during a Prem clash with WolvesCredit: Getty Fernandes, 28, told The Athletic: "I call these the ‘referee zone' as nobody marks the referee. "Sometimes, this is what the coaches say to players who play between the lines, or the wingers who want to come inside, or the striker when he wants to drop. "Of course, sometimes the positions are different because it can be a counter-attack, for example. “It also depends on the way an official referees the game. Mike Dean, for example, ran very centrally, which was probably for him better to see the game.

    (CNN)Aaron Judge continued his scintillating form as he blasted his 51st home run of the season in the New York Yankees' 7-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. Judge's fourth-inning homer on Tuesday was his fifth in the last eight games and takes him within 10 of Roger Maris' 61-year-old American League record for home runs in a single season.The 378-foot drive helped end the Yankees' three-game losing skid and keeps Judge on track to surpass 60 home runs for the season. New York Yankees star Aaron Judge bids to make history after hitting 48th homer of the seasonAccording to the MLB, he is already in an elite group of five Yankees to hit 50 or more home runs in a single season, alongside Maris, Babe Ruth, Alex Rodriguez and Mickey Mantle. Andrew Benintendi and Anthony Rizzo also hit homers against the Angels, but the Yankees' night was dampened by Jameson Taillon's exit from the field after he was hit by a comebacker and suffered a right forearm contusion.Read MoreTaillon's scans showed no signs of a fracture, the Yankees...
    New York Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that the word 'salesman' will be replaced with 'salesperson' in state law just one week after banning the word 'inmate,' as critics slam rising crime rates in the state.  Current bail laws in New York do not require anyone arrested of a nonviolent felony or misdemeanor to post a cash bond for release, which complements the overall rate in New York City increasing by 36 percent. Other changes as a result of the decision include all instances of 'his' or 'her' being replaced with 'their' in all statutes regarding the real estate industry. State Sen. Anna Kaplan, who sponsored the bill alongside Sens. Alessandra Biaggi, Samra G. Brouk, James Gaughran and Robert Jackson, said 'jobs have no gender' in her justification of the decision. 'But, unfortunately, many of our state's laws still use gendered language when (discussing) professions that are practiced by people of all genders,' Kaplan wrote.  The law follows recent amendments made to state laws replacing the term 'inmate' with 'incarcerated person' to refer to people serving prison time. New York Gov....
    The Houston Astros showed that they are ready for the postseason at the expense of the Chicago White Sox. The Chicago White Sox had a successful first season under Tony La Russa in 2021, which resulted in them making the postseason for the second consecutive year. 2022, however, has been a disaster for the team from the Southside of Chicago. Yet, they were still 61-57 entering their game on Aug. 18. Unfortunately for them, it was against the American League-leading Houston Astros. On Thursday at Guaranteed Rate Field, the White Sox were defeated by the Astros 21-5. That’s right, Houston scored three touchdowns, while Chicago managed to get a field goal and a safety.

    SEATTLE — Josh Donaldson was the spark the Yankees needed Monday night. After losing five straight and being swept in St. Louis, the veteran third baseman gave the Bombers three runs early to get their offense going against the Mariners on Monday and hopefully turn around a month-long skid. And the Yankees have to hope that this run can turn around what has been a disappointing start to Donaldson’s Yankee career. Donaldson’s two-run single in the first inning against Logan Gilbert got things started and then he homered off the Mariners’ right-handed starter in the third. He finished with a season-high four-hit night, including two doubles and his 11th home run of the season. “I feel like that run is in there for JD,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. “And if he can get going like we know he’s capable of, that’s a big, heavy bat in the middle. And we need it.” The Bombers haven’t seen it for most of the season. After acquiring Donaldson — and the  $50 million left on his deal with the Twins that runs through...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Pete Alonso or Ronald Acuña Jr. send balls out of the ballpark, they get to the seats in a hurry. No problem for production crews during regular season games. But when it comes to broadcasting the rapid-fire All-Star Home Run Derby, it’s a unique test for ESPN. A time-based format was introduced in 2015, and hitters now have 3 minutes to launch as many big flies as possible, meaning there are often two balls in the air simultaneously. With how quickly stars like Alonso — the two-time reigning champ — can crank out 400-plus foot drives, there isn’t time for replays of even the most majestic home runs. ESPN is embracing the challenge going into Monday night’s Derby at Dodger Stadium. Last year’s event averaged 7.13 million viewers on ESPN and ESPN2, making the most-watched Derby since 2017. By comparison, this season’s “Sunday Night Baseball” broadcasts are averaging 1.56 million, on pace with last season. The switch from each player having 10 outs to a timer has had its desired effect, with balls leaving the...

    Rainier Koeners left home at the age of 17 and ended up in London to pursue his passion for theater. Having already done quite a bit of theater work in his hometown of Zoetermeer in the Netherlands during his teen years, Koeners would eventually enroll in the Guildford School of Acting after landing in England. Yet, it was a non-acting gig — working as an usher at the West End’s famed Piccadilly Theatre — that really pointed him toward his future in the theater world. “During my time working there, I became aware that it was possible to have a career in theater outside of being an actor and that is when I made up my mind — I wanted to run my own theater,” he says. The company that employed him at the time was the powerhouse Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) and he’d steadily work his way up from usher to management at the company. In 2019, Koeners relocated to San Francisco to be the managing director of the Curran Theatre and oversee the opening of “Harry Potter and...
    PAMPLONA, Spain (AP) — Pamplona is once again a sea of red and white as the frenzied madness of the San Fermín running of the bulls festival returns with adrenaline, emotion and passion following a two-year suspension because of the coronavirus pandemic. From the start on July 6, the tension and excitement was palpable. Tens of thousands of people donning the customary white trousers and shirt with red sash and neckerchief packed the town hall square for the traditional “chupinazo” firework that kicks off the nine-day San Fermín festival. After that, it has been a nonstop party, spiced up with the electrifying running of the bulls each morning at 8 a.m. The festival reunited friends and families from all over. Joe Distler, 70, from New York, has been coming and running for the past 50 years but says he was sad to miss the past two editions. “It´s incredible. Two years without Pamplona was very, very bad,” he said, speaking in Spanish. “How lucky to be with friends here this year in Pamplona. Fabulous. Hopefully next year there will...
    CLEVELAND — The waiting was the hardest part. Getting rained out on Friday night, the Yankees had to wait longer to get rid of that taste. Coming off a loss in Houston on Thursday, they just needed to get back on the field and do what they do. The Guardians paid that price Saturday when the Yankees swept the split doubleheader. In the first game, Gerrit Cole pitched six solid innings and Matt Carpenter hit two home runs for a 13-4 win. In the nightcap, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton went back-to-back and Nestor Cortes gave them six one-run, three-hit innings in a 6-1 win. In the first game, the Yankees (58-21) improved to 16-5 in games following a loss this season, and with the second win they clinched their 20th series of the season. “I just think that there’s a lot of toughness and grit in the clubhouse,” Carpenter said. “There’s a lot of fire, and a lot of guys that care. It’s easy when you have the talent that we have to win games, but to do it...
    TORONTO — The Yankees head into the Tampa Bay area this week with perhaps their biggest challenge ahead of them. Sure, they are coming in with the best record in baseball and a huge lead in the American League East. And just last week they swept the Rays back in the Bronx. Their pitchers have allowed the fewest runs in the majors and their hitters have hammered the most home runs. But this week could define not only this season, but the franchise’s next decade. Wednesday, before the team heads back to the Bronx to face the Astros, is the scheduled time for the arbitration on Aaron Judge’s 2022 salary. The process has never been described as a positive, relationship-building experience by players who went through it — just ask Dellin Betances. It’s a process that Judge, whose historic home run pace this season is not supposed to be taken into consideration, remembers from when the Yankees beat Betances and the hard feelings grew in the clubhouse. With the Yankees looking like a World Series contender, they shouldn’t let any...
    For the second time in four games, the Orioles rallied from a 6-2 deficit only for their opponent to score a late run and hand them a 7-6 defeat. This time, the Tampa Bay Rays were the dealers, evening the series at Camden Yards after the Orioles won Friday night’s opener, 1-0. Baltimore (29-38) saw two balls that would have been home runs in the ballpark’s old dimensions stay in thanks the venue’s new left field wall. The first came off the bat of Robinson Chirinos, who instead settled for his second double of the day. The previous one plated two runs in the second, but the Rays answered with four in the third off rookie right-hander Kyle Bradish before adding two more in the fifth. The latter came in the eighth after the Orioles erased that deficit with four runs between the fifth and sixth innings, with Trey Mancini driving a ball to deep left only for it to be caught. It marked the fifth time the new wall has taken a home run from Mancini, who entered Saturday...
    TORONTO — Gleyber Torres looks like, well, Gleyber Torres. Not the Gleyber Torres the Yankees fretted about over the previous two seasons. He looks nothing like the kid that was struggling to make routine plays at shortstop and taking those struggles to the plate. No. Torres looks more like the 2018-19 version of himself, playing second base with confidence that carries over to the batter’s box. Torres hit two line-drive doubles Friday night and is hitting .327/.400/.673 with 11 runs scored, five doubles, four home runs and seven RBI over his last 14 games. “It’s probably taking a little bit of pressure off of him overall, which probably has helped his offense a little bit, although probably not to the degree that maybe the narrative might suggest,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said of Torres relaxing now that he is playing second base rather than shortstop.  “He’s a really good offensive player and he’s made some quality adjustments that have gotten him to this point.” The difference between Torres at shortstop and second base is pretty stark. Torres went into Saturday...
    Aaron Judge wanted to apologize after that game. He’s not your traditional lead-off hitter, so when Tigers starter Beau Brieske threw him a fastball to start last week’s game, the slugger simply hammered it for a home run. “Just saw what I liked. I really wasn’t gonna swing, but then saw something I liked,” Judge said of the fastball he crushed. “I felt bad for [Josh Donaldson] behind me. …usually when DJ [LeMahieu] is leading off he gives me about seven or eight pitches that kind of warm me up and let me see the pitcher, but I only gave JD one pitch to see what he’s got. “Luckily I was able to get a run in.” Judge has started six games leading off in his career and five times this season, including both Saturday and Sunday. While he apologized for not being the traditional lead-off hitter, who works a lot of pitches and gets on base, Judge does fit the mold for the way the spot is being used more and more. “It’s not as important to work the count more...
    Jazz Chisholm led off Friday’s game in Houston with a home run. He bunted on the first pitch Thursday and stole second. The Miami Marlins’ rising star has four home runs and nine runs-batted-in entering Saturday since a loud team meeting Tuesday that reportedly centered around him. If the point of that meeting was to get Chisholm out of a slump, mission accomplished. If it was reign in Chisholm’s personality as some reports have it, well, the Marlins’ official Twitter account switched on Friday night to a picture of Chisholm sticking out his tongue. How’s that for an answer on who won out? Baseball needs more Chisholms. The Marlins sure do. He’s the best player in their lineup, a dynamic talent capable of igniting an offense and a reason to watch through a so-far humdrum season. There he was after his first of two home runs Friday night, running around the bases with dramatic hand motions, flexing a bicep and offering his signature Eurostep just before stepping on home plate. Big deal. Seriously, it was a big deal to baseball...
    A woman takes a selfie with her son in front of a sign that translates 'I love Ukraine.' Kyiv. June 1, 2022. The area east of the Izyum salient continues to be the zone of hottest contention, and on Thursday the pattern there hasn’t changed—Russia, having concentrated heavy forces in the area, is slowly grinding forward, capturing more villages, and moving closer to major targets like the cities of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk. There are heavy losses on both sides and continued reports that Russia is pushing Battalion Tactical Groups (BTGs) forward that are far below full strength, but so far the sheer numbers, and the punishment of Russian artillery, has been enough to keep Russia on the offensive. Russian forces pushing out from Lyman capture several small villages. In the last 24 hours, Russia has expanded control of the area around the recently captured town of Lyman. This includes taking several outlying villages like Dibrova. It also places Russian-occupied territory within 10km of Slovyansk, with the town of Raihorodok next up on the Russian agenda. Russian sources are providing plenty...
    BALTIMORE — With his ninth-inning home run, Anthony Rizzo joined Aaron Judge (12) and Giancarlo Stanton (10) with double-digit home runs. Amazingly, it is the first time in Yankees history that they have had three players with 10 or more home runs within the first 35 games. It took a while for Rizzo to get there. He had not hit a home run since April 29 in Kansas City — until he hit his 10th of the season in the ninth inning. “It’s definitely just part of the season where you put in the work and you don’t necessarily get the results. So it’s definitely a battle, but usually you get into ruts like that and one swing like that could definitely help,” Rizzo said of his homer. “I feel like yesterday was a lot closer, even some of the outs today didn’t necessarily look too good, but felt better so we just gotta keep going every day and you know once we can just switch it all.” Overall, Rizzo’s lefty bat has been a big contributor to the Yankees lineup this...
    "I was trying to protect my stomach, so I turned, and it hit my ribs," she told KGO. Liu added to the station that the man called her a "Chinese b***h" as he was running off — and that she didn't know the term's meaning until it was translated for her days after the incident. She also sounded the air horn, and KGO said its noise scared away the intruder and also got the attention of a nearby volunteer security team — the Blue Angels. Image source: KGO-TV video screenshot The group flagged down Oakland Police, and the station said police arrived in less than two minutes, but the suspect has not yet been arrested. The air horn factor The station said thousands of air horns like the one Liu used were distributed in Chinatown and beyond in February 2021. Carl Chan, president of the Chinatown Chamber, told KGO the community was skeptical at first: "In the beginning, people were questioning why should I carry air horns? With a...
    PHILADELPHIA — The Mets took the phrase “never say die” to a completely different planet. Down six runs in the ninth, the Mets put together a seven-run rally against two Phillies pitchers, including closer Corey Knebel, to mount the comeback of all comebacks. It was pandemonium in the City of Brotherly Love as the Mets beat the Phillies, 8-7, at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday night in the unlikeliest win of their season to date. “I’m trying not to be giddy,” said the typically business-as-usual manager Buck Showalter. “That’s a good club over there. We’ll make everybody know that as long as we got some outs, we got a chance. “A night like tonight makes you realize what could be.” Starling Marte began and ended the rally when he led off the ninth inning with an infield single to short. When the Mets batted around the order, Marte put the punctuation mark on the game with a go-ahead RBI double off the centerfield wall to score a hustling Brandon Nimmo from first. But, in the clubhouse after the game, Showalter...
    KANSAS CITY — Isiah Kiner-Falefa came to the Bronx with big expectations of himself. Having grown up a Yankee fan, it was a childhood dream come true with the Bombers traded to acquire him from the Rangers. His career in pinstripes began like a nightmare as he struggled in the field and at the plate. Now he has clearly settled in and has embraced the dream. Sunday, Kiner-Falefa went 1-for-3 with an RBI and scored two runs, including getting their seventh inning rally started as the “fireplug” of the lineup. After starting the season going 1-for-17 with four strikeouts and an error, Kiner-Falefa has been on base safely for the last 13 straight games. He’s become a sparkplug at the bottom of the lineup, getting on base for the power bats at the top of the lineup. “I feel like in every run we scored today he was a big part of it,” Aaron Judge said after Sunday’s game against the Royals. “From that big RBI double, to get on base and then scoring on my little check swing bunt down...
    The Braves quest at repeating as world champions received a significant boost on Thursday with the return of Ronald Acuña Jr. Six months ago, the Atlanta Braves stood on the field in Houston an out away from the franchise’s first World Series title in 27 years. For players like Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies, and Dansby Swanson, it was the culmination of a long pursuit. Others, like Eddie Rosario and series MVP Jorge Soler, were brought in during the season and melded together with their new teammates to create a championship-caliber lineup. But, as Freeman squeezed the last out in Game 6 and the celebrations began, there was someone missing. A few months earlier, Braves star outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr. attempted to catch a fly ball against the wall in Miami but instead came down awkwardly on his right leg. He crumbled to the ground, hiding the disappointment on his face with his hands. The diagnosis was devastating: Acuña had torn his ACL; his season was over. Acuña, already at age 23 baseball’s premier multi-tool player, was forced to watch his...
    MSNBC followed Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) to Las Vegas for a Wednesday night rally and found some gamblers were already invested in the potential of the governor running for president in 2024. The event was not even meant to be centered around DeSantis. The rally was in support of Nevada Senate candidate Adam Laxalt, a longtime friend of DeSantis who served with him in the Navy. DeSantis, however, was the main attraction. On Thursday’s Hallie Jackson Reports, the host theorized the trek to Las Vegas was DeSantis clearly “sparking up some 2024 chatter,” and reporter Guad Venegas had the perfect clip to illustrate her claim. Outside the event for Laxalt — which Venegas noted was his biggest yet — were numerous DeSantis supporters and some were evening selling DeSantis merchandise. One supporter  — who was wearing a t-shirt with an image of President Joe Biden with a Hitler mustache and text reading: “Not My Dictator” — had a collection of DeSantis 2024 hats and when Venegas inquired about them, he was informed the man had already printed some 2,000 of...
    The Chicago Cubs dropped the series finale to the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field, a 4-3 loss Sunday after breaking out the bats for a 21-0 win the day before. Here are three takeaways from the four-game series in which the Cubs went 1-3. 1. Justin Steele probably won’t look back fondly at his week. The 25-year-old went just 5⅔ innings in two starts — both losses — against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday and the Pirates on Sunday, allowing seven earned runs on seven hits and seven walks with only three strikeouts. Steele (1-2) struggled to control his four-seam fastball and slider early Sunday. “As the game went on, kind of lost command of my four-seam and started losing my breaking ball arm side,” Steele said. “I felt like it was a bunch of deep counts.” The Cubs pulled him after three innings after he gave up three runs on four hits with four walks and two strikeouts. “I think I was kind of getting tired,” Steele said. “My front side was leaking a little bit instead of staying back...
    A Desperation Defense Now that Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen—it’s hovering in the low 40s, and it can’t get up—the Main Stream Media have come up with a new line of defense for their man. Okay, goes this new line, Biden isn’t doing so well, but that’s to be expected—because no president can do well.  That is, the problems are just too tough, the job is just too hard, the country is just too polarized, yada yada yada. As we shall see, history suggests that the American people won’t buy an  argument based on hopelessness, which we can call the desperation defense.  After all, Americans tend to be optimistic and solution-oriented.  And so if an elected official can’t solve the problem, throw him out and give someone else a chance.  That’s the American Way.   Yet the MSM, which certainly sees itself as higher and better than the American public and its bourgeois ways, is all in with its last-ditch apologia for the 46th president. For instance, there was this April 17 headline from CNN: “Biden confronts a host of problems...
    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) stated that Texas will continue busing migrants to Washington, D.C., and if D.C. runs out of room, “Delaware looks like a great location.” Abbott said, “Texas is taking unprecedented action. As we’re speaking right now, Sean, the seventh bus is en route from Texas to Washington, D.C. This busing process is going to continue. I want you and the audience to know exactly why we’re doing what we’re doing. The Biden administration, they were dropping off illegal immigrants just [into] small towns on the border. And I said, we’re not going to allow that to happen. The people in local communities were overrun by the people they had dumped off in these local communities and they were grappling with how to deal with it, and I said, well, we’re just going to bus them to Washington, D.C.” Later, host Sean Hannity asked, “Will you send every illegal immigrant that you find in the state of Texas to Washington, D.C.?” Abbott responded, “We’re going to load them...
    NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio (AP) — Before digging into his six-egg omelet at a bustling northeast Ohio diner, Republican Senate candidate Josh Mandel stopped to bow his head. “Bless our food, our time, our conversation, in Jesus’ name,” said Pastor J.C. Church, who joined Mandel after a campaign event at a local church. ”Amen.” The scene encapsulated Mandel’s campaign strategy as he competes in a crowded field of Republican contenders ahead of Ohio’s May 3 primary. He is a Jewish candidate who makes no secret of his faith, but who is centering his campaign around evangelical churches as he tries to win over religious, conservative voters. “Usually, when someone’s running for U.S. Senate or governor or Congress, they’d go to all the Republican rubber chicken dinners and clam bakes and hog roasts, stuff like that,” Mandel said in a recent interview between campaign stops. “We’re blowing up the playbook. I’m sidestepping all of the Republican Party groups and, instead, I’m running a campaign through churches.” Indeed, Mandel’s campaign is steeped in Christianity. His website features a picture of a cross and...
    You play to win the game, right? At least, according to Herm Edwards. But one coach may have taken that anecdote too far when he intervened in the closing minutes of a soccer match by stopping the ball himself. This happened over the weekend in the Spanish fifth tier when Villanueva Del Pardillo F.C. and Colmnar Viejo met for a match. The score was tied 1-1 going into extra time when an assistant coach for Colmnar Viejo ran onto the pitch and stopped the ball. And that’s when things got ugly. Take a look. Have you ever seen anything like this? ???? A Villanueva del Pardillo coach was SENT OFF after entering the pitch to stop a counter-attack against his team in the 89th minute! ????pic.twitter.com/4uJiEFIpKp — Sky Sports Football (@SkyFootball) April 12, 2022 Never have I seen such a deliberate interruption by a coach, and the referee was quick to issue the red card, but that isn’t enough of a punishment for breaking up a counterattack. Plus, Pardillo players wanted to give the coach a piece...
    New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole must really hate actor Billy Crystal, who threw out the first pitch on Opening Day. Cole doesn’t like to be late. Duly noted. Gerrit Cole is a Type A personality. The Yankees ace doesn’t handle being late very well. On Friday afternoon, the Yankees-Red Sox start time was moved back four solid minutes due to Crystal’s first pitch. Cole looked visibly shaken in the dugout, and proceeded to give up three first-inning runs to the Red Sox, including a home run to Rafael Devers. When asked about his frustration after the game, Cole doubled down. “The festivities got a little away from the schedule,” Cole said via Bryan Hoch. Yankees, Gerrit Cole overcome rough start against Red SoxCole gave up three runs in the first, but then responded with a solid outing after the fact. The ace was on a pitch count due to a shorter spring training. The Yankees would rally thanks to home runs by Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton. Come the bottom of the 11th inning, New York picked up a...
    Doja Cat and SZA won a Grammy on Sunday for Best Pop Duo / Group Performance for their song “Kiss Me More,” but it was a serious struggle to get to the stage. Avril Lavigne introduced the nominees for the category, which she described as being “all about what we can do when we put our voices together.” SZA was seated near the stage and didn’t have far to go, but was on crutches and had a small struggle with the long train to her floral gown. Lady Gaga — gracious even though SZA and Doja Cat had just beat her duet with Tony Bennett in that Grammy category — quickly moved in to help gather the tulle layers and assist SZA up the stairs. Once she got to the stage, she couldn’t help gently teasing her musical collaborator. “Girl, you went to the bathroom for five minutes, are you serious?” SZA called out as Doja Cat hurried to join her. “Come on now.” “Listen,” said an out-of-breath Doja Cat. “I have never taken such a fast piss, in my...
    Howard Stern admitted to being a “big” fan of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and gave a particularly graphic explanation as to why. Opening up his SiriusXM show on Tuesday morning, Stern said, “When we’re not on the air I watch Morning Joe and I find Mika very attractive and it’s just funny to me to think about the sex.” Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, the co-hosts of the MSNBC morning show, married in 2018. Speaking with co-host Robin Quivers, Stern said, “You and I, we have a good thing going. We’ve been partnered up for years always doing the show together but no one has to think about me fucking you.” “Thank goodness – I would feel for those people having to think about that,” Quivers exclaimed. “It would be messy, It would be weird. Like, you know, Howard and Robin are great on the air together but then they go home and… I was thinking when I watched Morning Joe on MSNBC, I’m like, I watch it a lot and I like the both of them. I like to hear their...
    Getty James Washington carries the ball in for a touchdown. Typically, when the Dallas Cowboys sign a new free agent, the player doesn’t already own a massive ranch in Texas. Not for James Washington. But when you’ve got roots like the 25-year-old receiver does, it does make a little sense. Long before he reached Oklahoma State and then the Pittsburgh Steelers, Washington was a standout athlete at Stamford High School in Stamford, Texas. Now, he’s returned to the Lone Star State on a one-year contract with the Cowboys after his release from the Steelers. Interestingly enough, his introductory press conference was apparently a day late due to his ranch responsibilities, per ESPN reporter Todd Archer. New Cowboys WR James Washington was supposed to talk to the media on Tuesday, but, “I got a load of hay unexpectedly on the ranch, so I missed you guys. I want to apologize for that," he said He’s has cows and horses on his 40 acre ranch near Tye and Merkel, Texas. Read More From Heavy Bet $5, Win $150 Whether Your...
    President Joe Biden tore into former President Donald Trump on the world stage, and cracked wise about running against his predecessor again in 2024. The president held a press conference at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium Thursday evening, the bulk of which was devoted to matters directly related to the brutal Russian war against Ukraine, and NATO’s role in the conflict. But one reporter — Der Spiegel Brussels Bureau Chief Markus Becker — connected the state of the alliance with domestic politics, asking the president about the prospect of having his foreign policy achievements “undone” by someone like Trump… or Trump himself. The president used the question as an opportunity to roast Trump, and to deliver a message that roughly decodes as “Come at me, bro!”: MR. BECKER: Thanks, Mr. President. There’s a presidential election coming up in 2024. And as you know, there are wide- — THE PRESIDENT: You’re kidding. MR. BECKER: Yes. (Laughter.) It’s true. And there are widespread concerns in Europe that a figure like your predecessor, maybe even your predecessor himself, might get elected president again....
    BOSTON (CBS) – What Jacky Hunt-Broersma is up to these days just sounds crazy. Jacky, who runs with a prosthetic, is running 100 marathons in 100 days! Every day she flashes a scorecard of how many down and how many to go. Like Bill Belichick says, “no days off.” So why is she doing this? “Yes, I get that a lot and my kids, normally when they hear my next thing I want to do, they roll their eyes at me and they’re like ‘Here we go again,” she told WBZ-TV. Jacky runs some of her daily marathons on the road and some on the treadmill! Sounds miserable, right? She was a training for a 100-mile race, and because of the pandemic, she decided to stay inside and do that 100 miles on a treadmill. “Then I researched it, and an amputee’s never run a hundred miles on a treadmill, so I thought let’s see what happens,” she told WBZ. “It was definitely one of the hardest things I’ve done.” How long did it take? “Just under 24 hours,” she...
    (CNN)It was the middle of the night when Bibi Bahrami's father awoke her and the rest of the family, telling them they must flee their home immediately. Bahrami, only a teenager at the time, remembers being in a state of shock. "We just put our shoes on and we were all crying." It was 1979. The Soviets had invaded Afghanistan and word spread that troops would be coming to her family's village the next day to burn down houses. Not knowing what was happening or where she was headed, Bibi and her family of 12 began a difficult two-day journey on foot to Pakistan. "We didn't want to leave home. We didn't know where we were going to end up," Bahrami said. "It was a lot of uncertainty." Read MoreIt's a feeling that welled up again for her as she watched news of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Reading the headlines and seeing the lines of Ukrainian refugees brought back bad memories."When I saw that destruction, the damage, the bombing and killing of humans, it just hurts me.

    By Jake Coyle | Associated Press Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie adaptation “Death on the Nile” begins with a flashback to the trenches of World War I before shifting to 1930s London two decades later, but that’s nothing compared to the time that’s passed since Branagh’s preceding 2017 whodunit “Murder on the Orient Express.” That film, which packed a bevy of stars aboard an opulent locomotive, was a saggy contrivance that lacked the warm fizz of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 version, with Albert Finney. But “Murder on the Orient” did offer a welcome reminder of two immutable cinematic maxims: Train movies are irresistible and whodunits are, generally speaking, a hoot. It was an unexpected box-office hit, and a sequel, with Branagh again directing and returning as the mustachioed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, was quickly ordered up with visions of something like a Christie-verse. But the pandemic, which partly accounts for release postponements stretching two years, is not all that has delayed “Death on the Nile.” One of its stars, Armie Hammer, plunged into scandal, and the studio reportedly considered reshooting the film...

    New Georgia Project's Nsé Ufot joins us on The Brief. The New Georgia Project (NGP) is the model we need to see go national. Founded by future Georgia governor Stacey Abrams, NGP helped build the ground organization that propelled Sens. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff to the Senate in the Jan. 2021 runoff elections.  ​Georgia’s population is growing and becoming increasingly diverse. Over the past decade, the population of Georgia increased 18%. The New American Majority – people of color, those 18 to 29 years of age, and unmarried women – is a significant part of that growth. The New American Majority makes up 62% of the voting age population in Georgia, but they are only 53% of registered voters. Joining us today on Daily Kos The Brief, our weekly podcast about politics, is Nsé Ufot. She is the Chief Executive Officer of NGP and its affiliate, New Georgia Project Action Fund (NGP AF). We will talk about what NGP did to win in 2020-21, and what they’re doing this year to keep Warnock in the Senate and get Abrams into the governorship.  Donate...
    A huge brawl broke out among patrons at a Pennsylvania Golden Corral on Friday evening after the buffet reportedly ran out of steaks, police said. Video of the public disturbance shows chairs flying across the room and punches being thrown between dozens of people. ELON MUSK SUPPORTS CANADIAN TRUCKERS PROTESTING VACCINE MANDATES: 'CANADIAN TRUCKERS RULE' Investigators are trying to narrow down how the fight started, WJHG reports. Police say the fight may have involved as many as 40 individuals. Former Golden Corral employee Dylan Becker says that he heard from his friend, who is currently an employee, that the fight began over a steak shortage. “There was two parties in line waiting for steak. Somebody had cut in front and then started being picky and finicky about the steaks and taking too long, and then, somebody else spoke up and said something I guess the other party didn’t like. Then, it just looks like it turned into an all-out brawl,” Becker explained. Becker said his friend was struck by a table during...
    As Republicans eye the midterms, they find themselves beholden to Donald Trump, the de facto GOP leader whose base is dwindling even as those who remain loyal to him grow more radicalized and intensely devoted. Trump is still the overwhelming favorite to win the GOP nomination in 2024 if he runs, but his hold on the party is clearly slipping. From his unpopular promotion of vaccines to his polling and his flagging endorsements in high-profile races, Trump no longer resembles the invincible iron man he once was within the party. As we have noted repeatedly in recent weeks, multiple polls now suggest that Trump could be vulnerable to a challenge from his right flank. His promotions of vaccines and boosters have proven unpopular, and GOP voters who consider themselves a “Trump supporter” rather than a supporter of the Republican Party have dropped by double digits in Civiqs polling over the last year, from 57% in Jan. 2022 to 43% in Jan. 2021. A recent Associated Press survey found that 44% of Republicans said they do not want Trump to run...
    As we enter year three of what feels like the never-ending, forever pandemic of Covid-19 which originated in Wuhan, China, most people I know (who aren't trying to spin propaganda or are worried about being called racist) believe the lab-leak hypothesis. Whistleblower and hero doctor, Li Wenliang was one of the first people to alert the world to the threat posed by coronavirus and was detained in December for spreading news about the virus while the Chinese government downplayed the severity of the outbreak and its risk to the public.  He was accused of rumor-mongering by the Chinese police and later tragically died of coronavirus. His story is yet another glaring example of the country's severe censorship and commitment to propaganda.  There is a long, dark and evil list of atrocities the communist Chinese government has committed in the past few years that the international community should -- but only sometimes seems to be -- outraged by. The atrocities include the detainment of over one million Uyghurs in what the state calls 'education and vocation training' camps. There is evidence...
    After an ugly first half of football for the 49ers’ offense Sunday against the Texans, surely many Niners fans wanted a word with coach Kyle Shanahan, the team’s play-caller. One fan got the opportunity, albeit after the 49ers had taken hold of the game in their 23-7 win. In the fourth quarter, a young fan in a Joe Montana throwback jersey ran up to Shanahan on the 49ers’ sideline, presumably from the stands. Shanahan, who was focused on the game, was startled. “That scared the hell out of me. It threw me off so bad, I didn’t know what was going on, and I feel bad,” the coach said postgame. “I wish I’d (fist-bumped) the kid ’cause respect. I don’t know how he got down there. I was just looking at my call sheet and I hear a soft voice down there going ‘Holy cow, Kyle Shanahan.'” Related Articles Analysis: 49ers take care of business vs. Texans but sure don’t feel like a playoff threat Kurtenbach: Trey Lance led the 49ers to...
    Octavia Spencer has revealed that her house is haunted by the ghost of a Western movie star, saying she 'loves him' because he chases away any 'bad people' who shouldn't be on her property.  The 51-year-old Oscar winner, who lives in a 1927 Spanish-style home in Toluca Lake, California, opened up about her supernatural 'protector' on Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 'I need to know about your house being haunted, because I really love stories like this,' DeGeneres, 63, told the actress, adding: 'I do believe in ghosts.'  'I do too,' Spencer agreed, before dishing about her paranormal roommate. 'I grew up watching Westerns, and I bought this house, and it was owned by a guy who did Westerns, so I must have been a fan of his.'

    The "Ruthless" podcast has seen a sudden surge in its audience just days after Politico ran a hit piece on the conservative "variety progrum." Last week, Politico Magazine contributing editor Derek Robertson penned an opinion piece about the growing influential podcast, posing the question "is it any good?" "More than 100 episodes into its run, the show has demonstrated some real strengths — two out of its three hosts being public relations professionals, they know the pressure points and hypocrisies of political media all too well, and pounce on them with righteousness — but its flaws make the overall product deeply unsatisfying," Robertson wrote.  RUTHLESS PODCAST SOUNDS ALARM: FACEBOOK WHISTLEBLOWER IS ‘TROJAN HORSE’ FOR DEMS, MEDIA TO CENSOR THE RIGHT Robertson claimed "Ruthless" has an "awkward contradiction at its core" since co-hosts Josh Holmes, Michael Duncan and Comfortably Smug present themselves as the "bad boys of conservative talk" but the podcast is "tied inextricably to the establishment that former President Donald Trump railed against, and that its hosts almost literally embody." The Politico editor insisted the podcast is very "cringe,"...
    A Pittsburgh Steelers fan runs onto the field during Sunday Night Football vs. the Seattle Seahawks. If the Sunday Night Football contest between the Seattle Seahawks and the Pittsburgh Steelers was not doing it for you, check out this fan running onto Heinz Field like he had nothing left to lose. In a game where former WVU star Geno Smith is starting for the opposition once again at Heinz Field, we would have expected nothing less. The only thing grosser than this display of unathleticism was Benny Snell getting his arm mangled for all the world to see. And if you can smell that stench emanating from the turf, that is Ben Roethlisberger aging like milk before us. So when this guy started flopping on the turf like a fish, he was not the fish that saved Pittsburgh!

Dubbed the sauciest ever show made by Channel 4, the series will guide people on how to have threesomes and spice up 'vanilla' sex lives. 3My First Threesome saw a woman run out of a sex party in hysterics 3Laura, 24, spoke to the camera about the threesome she had just had, her first one At one point, 24-year-old receptionist Laura was seen running from a sex party at club Killing Kittens, giggling away, having just had her first threesome. As she grinned like a Cheshire cat and bobbed up and down excitedly, she told the camera: "So I've just had my first threesome...it was amazing!" She continued: "To be honest, I didn’t realise a threesome was going to happen until I was actually in it. It ended up actually being with my friend and a woman that was part of a couple. “But it was spurred on from me and her, rather than a male influence, which is just...
    North Carolina Black Alliance, fighting for the right to vote North Carolina is a purple state, but one that leans red.  Barack Obama won it by around 14,000 votes in 2008, or less than half a percent. He lost it to Mitt Romney in 2012 by nearly 100,000 votes.  Donald Trump won the state by around 3.5% in 2016, then won it by a smaller 1.5% in 2020, or just 74,000 votes.  That means it’s a slight-lean red state, right?  Well, since 2000, Republicans have held the governorship just once, for a single four-year term. That doesn’t mean those elections haven’t been close. 2000 was a 13-point blowout Democratic victory. But like the rest of the South, the state moved quickly rightward. Democrats might win, but only by three- to four-point margins. It’s a real dogfight.  And then there’s the Senate, which is at the center of North Carolina’s 2022 political battleground.  Remember, we have a 50-50 Senate, with Democrats holding the vice-presidential tie-breaking vote. With Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona obstructing their own party’s...

    We had a diplomatic incident last month and a lot of Americans didn't even know what happened. The government of France did something they haven't done in hundreds of years. They recalled their ambassador to the United States. They also accused the United States of behaving in a manner that is, quote, unacceptable between allies and partners. No, it wasn't a cheese embargo that made the French mad. They were angry that the Biden administration agreed to provide nuclear power submarines to Australia.  France had wanted to sell its own submarines, and the Biden administration effectively killed that deal. It hurt France, and they were mad about it. Now we haven't had a problem with France, this profound sense, to be specific, 1798.  John Adams was president then, and the interesting thing is, he had no idea that we had a problem with France. It took months for words to reach him back in Washington that American and French diplomats were fighting with one another.  By the time Adams learned about this diplomatic dispute, which became known as the XYZ...
