Green Day takes on the American dream in ‘Back in the USA’

Green Day has just released a greatest hits album that includes the brand-new track "Back in the USA", which has now been given the video treatment with a black-and-white satire of the American dream. The video opens on a 1950s-style scene of American life, complete with lawn-mowing, sweater vests and waving neighbors. Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong grabs a copy of the newspaper, headlined "Presidential Address Tomorrow," and heads inside before getting a visit from a traveling sunglasses saleswoman who changes his outlook on his seemingly idyllic lifestyle. He is soon joined by his fellow band members as they bring their new outlook to the stage. "Back in the US...Keep on reading: Green Day takes on the American dream in ‘Back in the USA’.....»»

Twins Molitor, D-Backs Lovullo win Manager of Year awards

By Ben Walker, Associated Press Paul Molitor and Torey Lovullo both presided over turnaround seasons, guided their teams into the playoffs and won Manager of the Year awards by wide margins. The paths they took, those were totally different. Molitor needed a clubhouse talk to calm down the Minnesota Twins, his players angered by moves the front office made at the July 31 trade deadline. "I still believed," Molitor said Tuesday, recalling how he helped his team overcome "that speed bump." No such distractions in the desert. In his first full season as a skipper, Lovullo built a culture of communication with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He often referred to the "love" teammates had for each other — and Lovullo certainly loved the midseason deal that brought big-hitting J.D. Martinez to the D-backs. "We are going to be one year better," he said, adding his club would be even "more united" in 2018. Molitor won the American League Manager of the Year award after the Twins became the first team to make the playoffs following a 100-loss season. Molitor drew 18 of the 30 first-place votes in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Cleveland's Terry Francona was second and A.J. Hinch of the World Series champion Houston Astros finished third. Voting was completed before the start of the playoffs. Lovullo got 18 first-place votes, too, in earning the National League prize. Dave Roberts of the Los Angeles Dodgers was second and Colorado's Bud Black was third. Roberts, Black, Milwaukee's Craig Counsell and Dusty Baker, since let go by Washington, also had first-place votes. Molitor joined Frank Robinson as the only Hall of Fame players to win a manager of the year award, which was first presented in 1983. "I was aware of some of the history," Molitor said. The Twins went 85-77 this season and captured their first playoff spot since 2010 before losing to the Yankees in the AL wild-card game. Last year, the Twins led the majors with 103 losses. Brian Dozier, Joe Mauer and their Minnesota teammates were in the midst of a 5-13 slide when the Twins traded closer Brandon Kintzler to Washington for a minor leaguer less than a month after he made the All-Star team. They also dealt away Jaime Garcia after he won his only start since they got him from Atlanta. "A little bit of a wrinkle," Molitor said. Molitor's message to the Twins at that point was "not magical," he said. Instead, it was fairly simple and straightforward: Believe in yourselves. "I still had a lot of optimism," he said. The 61-year-old Molitor was born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, and got the last of his 3,319 career hits with the Twins in 1998. Shortly after the playoff loss, Molitor got a new three-year contract to continue managing the Twins. The 52-year-old Lovullo guided the Diamondbacks to a 93-69 record and their first playoff spot since 2011, a year after they went 69-93. Lovullo was Boston's bench coach when he ran the Red Sox for 48 games in 2015 while manager John Farrell underwent cancer treatment. Powered by Paul Goldschmidt, Jake Lamb and Martinez, and led by pitchers Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray, the Diamondbacks made the playoffs this year. They beat Colorado in the NL wild-card game before getting swept by the Dodgers in the Division Series. The Diamondbacks were swept in a three-game series at Minnesota in mid-August, outscored 27-8 at Target Field. Less than a week later, Arizona began a franchise-record 13-game winning streak. Going into a new season, Lovullo's team has a new target. "It didn't end the way we wanted. The Dodgers walked through us," he said......»»

History will have to wait as Azkals, Nepal battle to scoreless draw

The Philippine Azkals needed just one more win to make history by clinching a spot in the AFC Asian Cup for the first time, but home team Nepal had other ideas, holding the Philippines to a scoreless draw, Tuesday afternoon at the ANFA Complex in Latipur, Nepal.  Close chances were the story for both teams, as the Azkals and Nepal had a number of golden opportunities to get on the board, but just couldn't find the back of the net.  Hoping to finally secure a spot in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup with a game to spare, the Azkals ramped up the intensity in the second half, pushing the offense, but still couldn't buy a goal.  Playing without anything to lose, already-eliminated Nepal gave the Azkals some fits in the second half, including a late strike that was deflected by Junior Muñoz.  The Azkals came very close in the 83rd minute mark, with headers from Daisuke Sato and Mike Ott ulitmately getting denied by the Nepalese defense.  Tense moments as the Azkals are still looking to break through the Nepalese defense. #ACQ2017 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) November 14, 2017 With four minutes of injury time added, the Azkals again had their closest chance to claim history with just seconds remaining, when a Neil Etheridge free kick led to another header attempt that was denied by the right post.  Sato tried to keep the ball in play, but it was ultimately cleared by Nepal.  Azkals were so close to breaking through. The final attempt hits the post after the gorgeous FK by Neil Etheridge. #ACQ2019 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) November 14, 2017 The Azkals figure in their third straight draw, but remain unbeaten and at the top of Group F with nine points in five matches played.  The Pinoy side will have to wait until March of next year for another opportunity to clinch history, when they close out the third round of qualification against Tajikistan at the Panaad Park and Stadium in Bacolod. .....»»

Lady Realtors end slump, whip Tigresses in three sets

Games Thursday: (Filoil Flying V Centre) 4:15 p.m. – Cocolife vs Iriga City 7:00 p.m. – Generika-Ayala vs F2 Logistics   Sta.

Rialen Sante added nine points while Rebecca Rivera tallied 20 excellent sets for SLR.     Still, Yee was from satisfied with their win against the collegiate squad.  “Madami pa rin kaming errors and lapses then, hindi pa rin nagko-connect ang setter at middle hitters natin,” he said pointing at their 23 errors. “Buti nalang nandiyan ‘yung ibang imports natin na kayang-kaya ‘yung outside hits.” “Ang hirap noon kapag natalo pa kami. So, kahit papaano may konting pressure doon. We needed a win so we got a win,” he added. “Ito ang mga baby steps namin so we’ll take it.” Dimdim Pacres scored nine points while Carla Sandoval and Caitlyn Viray tallied eight markers each for the Golden Tigresses, who remained listless in three outings......»»
