first_imgThere are a number of horror stories that come along with a rigorous tour schedule, as any established band will tell you. It’s something all up-and-coming bands must go through in order to “make it” to a point of respect, almost like a fraternity/sorority’s “rush” to becoming part of the music industry’s universe. Sometimes that means getting stuck in stand-still traffic on the side of the highway in the middle of North Carolina on Mother’s Day. What else to do, but to break out the drum kit and put on a show?The Main Squeeze, Spafford, Aqueous, And More To Play First Ever Canyon Jam At The MishawakaThat’s the direction The Main Squeeze were heading until the cars finally started to move.

first_imgNew Delhi: West Indies batsman Chris Gayle brutally roasted India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal for his social media posts during a live session on popular social media platform Instagram. With no cricket going due to coronavirus pandemic, players are engaging with fans these days on social media to keep themselves busy.During a recent live session, Chahal’s former Royal Challengers Bangalore teammate trolled him for the videos that he uploads on social media. Gayle referred to Chahal as ‘annoying’ and went on to the extent of saying that he is going to block him.“I am going to tell TikTok to block you as well, seriously. You are very annoying on social media man. You need to get off social media right now. We are tired of Chahal. I don’t wanna see you in my life again. I am gonna block you,” Gayle said.This is not the first time when a fellow cricketer has pointed towards Chahal for his social media activities. Earlier, India skipper Virat Kohli had referred to him as a clown during a live video session with former South Africa cricketer AB de Villiers.“Have you seen his TikTok videos? You should go and check out Yuzvendra Chahal’s TikTok videos,” said Kohli. “You will not believe this guy is playing international cricket and he is 29-year-old. Just go and look at his videos. He’s an absolute clown.” IANSAlso Read: Caribbean Premier League: West Indies batsman Chris Gayle joins St Lucia ZouksAlso Watch: COVID-19 prevention: Kamrup(M) district administration selling vegetableslast_img read more


first_img Published on November 2, 2018 at 8:46 pm Contact Arabdho: [email protected] | @aromajumder Comments With just over a minute left in the game, Herkimer senior quarterback James Aiello took the snap with his team down 20-12 against Onondaga. He rolled out of the pocket to his left and saw junior Tyler Steele had a step on his defender, junior Zachary Delaney, heading towards the sideline.Aiello let the ball fly, but as Steele slowed down nearing the sideline, Delaney caught up with the receiver and jumped with both arms outstretched for the pass, which was thrown a tad bit too short.“I knew it was right there,” Delaney said. “I knew we had it in our hands.”Delaney’s second interception of the night sealed Onondaga’s second sectional championship in three years and their eighth all time. The Tigers sealed the win, 20-12, with a trio of kneel-downs following the interception, and the celebration commenced.“I’m pretty much speechless; I’m blown away by this win,” Delaney said. “So excited to keep playing with the boys.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textForcing timely turnovers was the theme of the game for Onondaga, and it started in the second quarter.After Herkimer’s MVP of the night, Wyatt Renshaw, ran in a three-yard touchdown early in the second quarter to put Herkimer up 6-0 following a missed two-point conversion, Onondaga took the lead just three drives later largely due to an interception by senior Wes Corr. He brought the pick back to the Herkimer four-yard line, and it took senior Jason Holbrook just two plays to pound in a four-yard touchdown run.Delaney, who also plays at the quarterback position, ran in the two-point conversion to give Onondaga the 8-6 lead.On the very next drive, Delaney secured his first interception of the game and ran it back to the Herkimer 28-yard line. This time, Onondaga could not take advantage, and the score remained 8-6 heading into halftime.On the other side of the break, it took nearly the entire third quarter for another score. Starting at their own 43-yard line, Onondaga strung together a drive all the way down the field featuring two big plays from Delaney and Holbrook.The first, a 24-yard pass to Corr from Delaney, and immediately following that, Holbrook ran for a 21-yard gain to bring the Tigers deep into Herkimer territory. Three plays later, Delaney completed the drive with a three-yard touchdown run, but a failed two-point conversion meant Onondaga held just a one-possession, 14-6 lead.With less than five minutes to play, Herkimer had the ball with a chance to draw even. But Aiello, looking for a slant route across the middle, floated the pass short of its intended target, and Holbrook was in perfect position for the interception.“As soon as I saw that ball go up, I knew I was going to get that,” he said. “I caught it, looked at both sides, found where my hole was and immediately went where I thought I could go.”That hole led him towards the sideline, short of the end zone, but nearing the pylon, Holbrook made a decisive cut back to the middle and past a defender for the insurance marker.“I knew I had to get into the end zone, or we might not have a chance to push it in,” he said. “I knew that I could make it in, so I decided to keep going and blasted through.”Herkimer responded with a 60-plus-yard touchdown pass from Aiello to Renshaw on the ensuing drive, but again, the Magicians missed the two-point conversion. Herkimer’s final chance to force overtime was squashed by Delaney’s second interception. And Onondaga held on.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


first_imgThe Sooners need this one to keep their Playoff hopes alive, and this is a chance to add a second quality victory for the CFP committee. Oklahoma and Jalen Hurts, who is on track to be a Heisman Trophy finalist, need to pour it on against their rivals.Will Mike Gundy let that happen? Oklahoma State squeaked out a victory against West Virginia with backup quarterback Dru Brown, and Chuba Hubbard is still trying to win the FBS rushing title.It has been an up-and-down season for the Cowboys, but a victory against the Sooners would override the three losses. Rivalry Week is here: a week that determines bragging rights for FBS fan bases across the country, no matter what the records are leading into the game.It’s what makes college football more distinct than most sports, and though the meaning has changed in the College Football Playoff era, it still spawns the most passionate games of the regular season. MORE: Sporting News Week 14 college football rankingsThat will be no exception this week; Rivalry Week is guaranteed to generate some huge storylines. Here’s a closer look at the six best conversation pieces at the Thanksgiving dinner table.Commonwealth Cup for the CoastalBlack Friday starts with a beauty in the noon spot. The Commonwealth Cup comes with more drama than usual, with the winner advancing to the ACC championship game and take their best swing at Clemson.Virginia Tech is heating up at the right time. The Hokies have won three straight games, and they are coming off back-to-back shutouts against Georgia Tech and Pitt. Virginia, the preseason pick to win the Coastal Division, has more on the line here.The Cavaliers have lost 15 in a row in the series, including a bitter 34-31 overtime loss last season. When winning streaks in a rivalry reach that total, the psychological element is in play. Can Virginia Tech disappoint what is sure to be a pumped-up crowd in Charlottesville? The winner will go to Charlotte and have an excellent chance of landing in the Orange Bowl. Speaking of the New Year’s Day 6. …UC-Memphis cook-offThe Black Friday schedule continues with a huge AAC matchup between Memphis and Cincinnati in the 3:30 p.m. spot. This battle of 10-1 teams fits the description as the Group of 5 game of the year.The Bearcats already clinched their spot in the AAC championship game under Luke Fickell, and their only loss this season came against Ohio State.Memphis would need Navy to lose if they can’t beat the Bearcats, but this game is at home. The Tigers are 11-1 at home the last two seasons, with the only loss coming to UCF. The winner here will be favored to win the conference championship game and to snag the Group of 5 bid in the New Year’s Day 6.MORE: SN Week 14 bowl projectionsMichigan’s big chanceCan Shea Patterson lead an upset of Ohio State?The traditional noon kickoff starts with that question. Michigan has lost seven straight games to the Buckeyes, who will be double-digit favorites. Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh is 0-4 in The Game, and this is his first head-to-head matchup against Ohio State coach Ryan Day. The Buckeyes embarrassed the Wolverines 62-39 last season, and this year’s team has played with even less remorse.It comes down to whether you believe Patterson can make enough plays in the passing game to engineer a Michigan upset in The Big House. In Michigan’s last two victories against Michigan State and Indiana, Patterson is 44 of 65 (67.7 percent) for an average of 375 yards per game, and that comes with nine touchdowns and one interception. Offensive coordinator Josh Gattis’ offense has come to life, but the Buckeyes will speed that clock up with a furious pass rush led by defensive end Chase Young — who will be looking to make a Heisman Trophy statement.This is Patterson’s game to prove it.Paul Bunyan’s AxeThe other noon Big Ten matchup has a lot riding on it, as well. Paul Bunyan’s Axe is an amazing rivalry trophy, and this is the first time since 2004 that the Gophers will arrive to the game holding it.Minnesota and Wisconsin are playing for a spot in the Big Ten championship game, and the personality mismatch between P.J. Fleck and Paul Chryst could not be more pronounced.Minnesota will look to string together drives around Tanner Morgan; Wisconsin will lean heavily on running back Jonathan Taylor, who still has an outside chance at the Heisman Trophy. This feels like a close game that could come down to a last-minute field goal.MORE: SN Week 14 Playoff pictureIron Bowl beauty contestHow badly does Alabama need to beat Auburn by to keep the College Football Playoff committee’s attention?That’s the big question with backup quarterback Mac Jones, who passed for 275 yards and three touchdowns in a 66-3 blowout against Western Carolina on Saturday. That said, it’s dangerous to assume the Crimson Tide will just blow through an Auburn team who has been tested by four top-10 teams this season. The Tigers — who have what is perhaps the best defensive line in college football — lost three of those games by an average of seven points per game.Alabama might not be able to run it enough to impress the committee. On the flip side, a loss of any kind will knock the Tide out of contention, and kick up more Gus Malzahn-to-Arkansas rumors.Bedlam barrageOklahoma has won four straight matchups against Oklahoma State, but the last victory was by a single point.last_img read more
