    The Spice Girl clock goes tick-tick-tock and at 3pm Sporty says it is way too late for caffeine. None of the fruit teas on offer quite hit the spot, so she reaches into a tote for her emergency stash of peppermint teabags, folded neatly into a Ziploc bag. How very organised! ‘I can’t help it,’ she says. ‘I am a mum.’ It seems like yesterday when Sporty Spice aka Mel C aka Melanie Chisholm from Merseyside was doing backflips in a crop top and singing about girl power with her fellow Spices. Yet 25 years have passed since the most successful girl group of all time pushed their chicas to the front and took on the world. Today, Sporty is not just a devoted single mother to her 13-year-old daughter Scarlett, she is a pop survivor who loves her early nights and her decaf life. It seems like yesterday when Sporty Spice aka Mel C (pictured) aka Melanie Chisholm from Merseyside was doing backflips in a crop top and singing about girl power with her fellow Spices ‘My rock and...
    Chicago Cubs radio announcer Pat Hughes’ eloquence on the microphone has made him synonymous with summer baseball on the North Side. Hughes, 67, has been the radio voice for a generation of Cubs fans since taking over the role in 1996. The team will honor him for his contributions by inducting Hughes and former outfielder José Cardenal into the Cubs Hall of Fame. The late Buck O’Neil — a longtime scout and coach for the Cubs — also earned a plaque through his election this year to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The trio will be inducted Sept. 10. President of business operations Crane Kenney revealed the news to Hughes during the third inning of Wednesday’s radio broadcast of the Cubs’ 7-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field. “I’m amazed, I really am. I don’t know what to say,” Hughes said afterward. “How did I get here? I can’t explain it. It’s almost surreal.” Hughes said he wished his parents and former broadcast partner and Hall of Famer Ron Santo were alive for the honor. He...

    Emily Ratajkowski admitted to capitalizing on her “sexuality” by “using her body” to find “fame” and “success” but now says it’s wrong to think of it as “empowering.” “[In] my early 20s, I really thought of myself as hustling and working the system and saying, ‘Okay, I know what I can get from becoming a model and from using my body to have fame and success,'” the 30-year-old model/actress shared during her appearance on CBS This Morning Monday. The comments were noted by the Daily Mail.

    More On: new york mets Javier Baez’s Mets career starts with a bang — and a win Mets’ trade deadline prize ready to embrace big stage: ‘Just gotta be me’ MLB’s greed stands in way of simple fix to shorten games MLB trade deadline winners and losers The Mets’ long-awaited first Hall of Fame class since 2013 spanned various eras of team history, honoring two All-Star pitchers from the 1970s and ’80s and one everyday regular bridging the new millennium. Jon Matlack, Ron Darling and Edgardo Alfonzo were inducted Saturday in a pregame ceremony delayed more than a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They were the first players so feted since Mike Piazza, who was in attendance Saturday, was enshrined eight years earlier. “I didn’t really realize until I got the call that I was going in the Hall of Fame last year that I do have a place here, a place of history in this organization,” said Darling, who posted 100 wins (including one in Game 4 of the 1986 World Series) with the Mets from 1983-91...
    During an interview with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Tuesday, Fox News host Harris Faulkner criticized the Texas Democrats who fled the state to Washington, D.C. in order to deny Republicans in the legislature a quorum. The Democrats lack the votes necessary to shoot down a pending elections bill they say is meant to suppress voters. Faulkner read from a Washington Examiner op-ed that noted several of the lawmakers didn’t wear masks on the chartered flight they took to the Beltway, and now several have tested positive for Covid-19. “Senator Cruz,” said Faulkner, “this is your home state of Texas. You have seen what I know with my relatives in Texas we don’t do. We don’t cut and run. That’s what I’ve heard some Republicans accuse them of. What is the next phase they are in now?” Faulker’s deployment of the “don’t cut and run” line is interesting, if not droll in this context. In February, Cruz infamously took an impromptu family trip to Cancun, Mexico to avoid a deadly winter storm that ravaged Texas and shut down large swaths of...
    NHL star Mike Fisher had a successful career on the ice, but now that he’s retired, he has a new No. 1 goal: raising his sons to love Jesus and others. “I want [my boys] to have a real relationship with the Lord. And that’s why we’re here, and that’s where we find true peace, and that’s what I’m trying to instill in my boys,” Fisher, who is married to country music icon Carrie Underwood, told the Daily Wire. “And even though our journeys are all ups and downs, I want to be a good leader for them and point them to Jesus,” Fisher said. “That’s my number one goal at home. Obviously being a good husband — supporting my wife and loving her well — but my mom and dad are great examples of a Godly home. Not perfect — nor am I going to be perfect — but my goal is to show my boys a real relationship with Jesus every day,” he added. The former Nashville Predators captain retired from professional hockey in 2018 after competing in...
    'Never complain, never explain, and rarely be heard speaking in public,' was the Queen Mother's simple, legendary template for royal popularity. It stood her in great stead throughout her own 101-year life. Most British people would have had no idea what Queen Elizabeth thought of anything, or even what she sounded like. Yet she died a hugely popular and beloved public figure. In many ways, she was very similar to Prince Philip: tough, uncompromising, stoic, and resolutely silent in public about the myriad scandals that have engulfed the Royal Family. They had both had very strong opinions, they just preferred not to share them outside of the family and close, trusted friends. But many of the younger royals that followed them have behaved very differently - emoting on television, playing the victim, wallowing in self-pity, complaining about their regally gilded lives, and getting themselves into all manner of lurid scrapes that have damaged the family's reputation. As his mourning family prepare to gather this Saturday to say goodbye to one of its greatest figures at his funeral, they would...

The Good As Hell hitmaker, 32, said that she knows that she is 'beautiful' but she just doesn't 'feel it'.

    BOSTON (AP) — Longtime Bentley University women’s basketball coach Barbara Stevens is retiring after a four-decade run that included more than 1,000 wins, the 2014 NCAA Division II national championship, and recent election to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The 65-year-old coach made the announcement Tuesday, ending a 34-year stint at Bentley in which she compiled a 901-200 record, made 31 Division II tournament appearances and 14 in regional championships. Her retirement will become effective on July 31. “This is a bittersweet time for me,” Stevens in a statement. “I am stepping away from a profession that has been my life’s work and passion for 44 years.” Stevens retires as the fourth-winningest coach in NCAA women’s basketball history with a 1,058-291 career record. She trails only Pat Summitt (1,098), Tara VanDerveer (1,094) and Geno Auriemma (1,091) in career victories. She became the first non-Division I women’s basketball coach, and the fifth overall, to reach the 1,000-win milestone, with Bentley’s 78-66 home victory over Adelphi University on Jan. 17, 2018. “You look at all those coaches. They are...
