    Elton John reached out to President Joe Biden's administration to ask if he could play at the White House despite Donald Trump's long admiration for the singer and his attempt to get him to play his inauguration.  'His team expressed an interest on his behalf,' a White House official said of John, who will perform on the South Lawn on Friday night.  While the current first couple are fans, Biden's predecessor in the White House, Donald Trump, long considered John a personal friend and was reported to be 'obsessed' with him.  John declined to play at Trump's inauguration but did tell him if he ever hosted offiicials from the UK for a state dinner he would perform - similar to what he did in February 1998 when John performed at a State Dinner during Bill Clinton's presidency for then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Trump never hosted the Brits for such an occasion.  Now John will perform for a commander in chief when he headlines 'A Night When Hope and History Rhyme' that will celebrate the healing power of music and commend the life...

    Richard Thomas — like millions of others — read Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” as a student. “Probably early high school,” the acclaimed actor recalls. “I loved the book.” Yet, then he did something that a lot of people don’t: He read the book again as an adult. Of course, Thomas had a good reason to do so, since he’d just been cast to play the character Atticus Finch in the touring production of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which opens to the Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco on Sept. 13. “When I was invited to do this tour, which I was very excited about, I read (the book) again,” he says. “As I have been saying to people, if you haven’t read ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ since you were a young person — and you liked it — read it again as an adult, because it’s a whole other reading experience. “It holds up beautifully. It was not a book that was written for kids. It was written for adults. So, the reading experience as an adult is...
    Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday said “there’s a chance” left tackle Ronnie Stanley could play in the season opener against the New York Jets on Sept. 11. Harbaugh did not further comment on Stanley’s status for Week 1, citing “strategic reasons.” Stanley, sidelined by ankle injuries over the past two years, was removed from the physically-unable-to-perform list after passing his physical on Friday, but the 2019 All-Pro didn’t practice Monday. Harbaugh said he could be on the field Tuesday. “They’re working him back in, so when he’s out there in individuals, we will start coaching him,” Harbaugh said. Harbaugh said last week that, in workouts with the team’s athletic training staff, Stanley “looks like he’s in really good shape.” After a breakout 2019, Stanley played in just six games in 2020, with his last coming just two days after he signed a five-year contract extension that made him one of the NFL’s highest-paid offensive linemen. His season-ending left ankle injury in November 2020 required two operations and delayed his return to training camp until last summer. Stanley started in...
    Tennis legend John McEnroe blasted the US Open this week over not allowing superstar tennis player Novak Djokovic to compete. “I think it’s bullshit that he’s not allowed to play, to be blunt,” McEnroe told The Daily Beast in a piece published on Friday. “I think it’s quite a gutsy stand, in a way, to do what he’s doing, because he’s potentially sacrificing being unequivocally the best ever, since he got thrown out of Australia… If he’s not in New York, this is another one that he could have won. So he’s risking something, but that’s also what made him so great.” “This idea that after everything we’ve gone through after a couple of years, I thought it was a total debacle and an absolute shitshow that he got thrown out of Australia the way he did,” he continued. “That was absurd.” On Thursday, Djokovic, who lives in Serbia and is unvaccinated, announced he wouldn’t be competing in the US Open in the United States, which requires non-U.S. citizen travelers to show proof of vaccination before flying into the...
    TENNIS legend John McEnroe has slammed government rules which look set to prevent Novak Djokovic from playing in this year's US Open. The seven-time Major winner, 63, had previously branded the ongoing drama over the Serb's Covid vaccination status as 'ridiculous'. 3John McEnroe has weighed in on the Novak Djokovic US Open vaccine rowCredit: Getty 3The 2022 Wimbledon champion is unvaccinatedCredit: AFP 3Under current government rules the Serb will be unable to enter the USACredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun Djokovic is not vaccinated against Covid-19 and government rules currently prevent unvaccinated travellers from entering the country.

    We all know the voices that populate baseball’s airwaves during games. They are distinct and they are hilarious. Any given week of the season, we don’t just get the play by play and commentary of the action on the field. We get the stories from their personal lives. We get the jokes they make about each other.

And all in the span of those nine innings, we remember those voices belong to real people, as imperfect as anyone else, and all with their own little quirks. So every week this season, we’ll be compiling some of our favorite hilarious, botched, and/or outlandish calls and moments over baseball’s broadcasts. HOME RUN— OK THIS TIME IT IS!

    MANCHESTER UNITED legend Gary Neville has called on Premier League teams to "get on with it" and stop postponing games due to COVID-19. So far, a total of 15 Prem matches have been called off this month alone due to rising cases caused by the Omicron variant and that has brought the fixtures list in disarray. 1Gary Neville has urged Premier League clubs to stop postponing fixtures due to COVID-19Credit: Rex This comes after the Premier League confirmed that a record 103 tests came back positive from December 20-26.

    John Harbaugh’s decision to attempt a 2-point conversion to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers rather than settle for a Justin Tucker extra point to go into overtime will be the subject of much debate this week. But not to his players, many of whom defended their head coach’s line of thinking that resulted in a 20-19 loss at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Sunday. “If we would have converted that 2-point conversion, we would be having a different conversation now,” inside linebacker Josh Bynes said. “Let’s just be real. We’d be talking about all of these ways we find a way to win and all of the other stuff. At the end of the day, they found a way to make the one play, and we didn’t. that’s what it came down to, and that’s what these games are all about, especially this late in the season.

After sitting out all of the Houston Rockets’ games so far this year, he is now expressing a desire to rejoin the team. However, the team is not especially eager to give playing time to its most decorated and highly-paid player. And now the team and the former All-NBA point guard find themselves at an impasse as they try to figure out a way forward that is satisfactory for both parties.

    Punk rock icon John Doe was midway through a concert set last week when someone pointed out that he’ was being watched from behind. The musician, a founding member of the influential SoCal band X, turned and looked up to see a small boy smiling out of a second story window in the house next door. Doe returned the smile, before issuing a playful warning: “Rock ‘n’ roll will ruin your life, kid.” The humorous moment was witnessed by about 15 people in the cozy, tree-dotted backyard of Kevin and Laura Chavaree’s Cole Valley, San Francisco, home, during one of the oddest concert tours you could imagine.

Welcome to the concert-going experience during the COVID-19 pandemic, when most regular music venues have been shut down due to social distancing concerns and musicians in need...

    CHARLIE WYKE keeps scoring and Sunderland continue winning. You could almost copy and paste that statement every week with both in such relentless form. 3Charlie Wyke has been in stunning form for Sunderland this season Boss Lee Johnson – since taking over in December – has set the Black Cats up to play to Wyke’s strengths and it is paying dividends. Sunderland face Tranmere on Sunday in the Papa John’s Trophy – aiming to win their first Wembley final since lifting the FA Cup back in 1973. They go into it with Wyke having now scored an incredible 26 goals in all competitions. And Sunderland now sit just two points off the automatic promotion spots in League One after winning six and drawing one of their seven games. It is no coincidence that Wyke scored eight goals in the first 18 matches this season – but has fired a further 18 in 20 games under Johnson. The striker told SunSport: “This is my third season here and I had two years where I didn’t really score too many goals. “The...

Wallace, 26, joked: “I won’t take all the credit for it but I will definitely have some! “You have to play to your crowd. If I played ‘Fields of Gold’ by Sting or something like that, we certainly wouldn’t go out the way we would want to. “But I can’t pick stuff like The Prodigy because someone would get a red card in the first minute of the game because they are too fired up! “Usually it is...
