Cardi B beats the boys to win rap album honors at Grammys

An overwhelmed Cardi B won her first Grammy Award on Sunday night, making history as the first solo woman to win best rap album.

Cardi B is just the fifth woman ever nominated in the category, which was created in 1995. Lauryn Hill was part of the Fugees when the group won in 1997 for "The Score." Cardi B took the stage at the Staples Center holding the hand of husband, Offset, with whom she has reunited after marital issues last year.

PBA: Dominant Beermen demolish Hotshots in Finals rematch

Looks like San Miguel has found its groove. The reigning four-time PBA Philippine Cup Champions finally scored their first signature win of 2019, picking up a rather convincing 113-92 win over Magnolia Sunday at the Big Dome. Coming in hot right from the start, the rematch of the 2018 Finals was barely close and the Beermen won back-to-back games for the first tiime this season. San Miguel improved to 4-3 with the 21-point demolition job and dropped the Hotshots to 0-2. “I think our last game against Blackwater gave us some momentum going to this game. And then, wala akong masabi sa mga players ko,” head coach Leo Austria said. “They were so focused, and maybe they know what's the importance of this game. Because, Magnolia is really a tough team. But most of the players really prepared for this game,” he added. San Miguel started the game with a 10-0 run, setting up the wire-to-wire win. Three players scored at least 20 points for the Beermen led by Arwind Santos with 29 points built around seven three-pointers. Terrence Romeo added 23 points on 80 percent shooting for his best game with San Miguel while five-time MVP June Mar Fajardo was good for 22 points. The Hotshots got 19 points from Ian Sangalang and 16 from Paul Lee in the loss.   The Scores: SAN MIGUEL 113 -- Santos 29, Romeo 23, Fajardo 22, Cabagnot 11, Lassiter 9, Ross 6, Nabong 3, Tubid 3, Pessumal 3, Mamaril 2, Zamar 2, De Ocampo 0, Vigil 0, Lanete 0. MAGNOLIA 92 -- Sangalang 19, Lee 16, Dela Rosa 14, Brondial 12, Jalalon 11, Pascual 8, Simon 4, Calisaan 4, Abundo 2, Gamalinda 2, Barroca 0, Reavis 0, Herndon 0, Melton 0. Quarters: 28-12, 51-42, 82-69, 113-92.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Terrence plays best game as SMB gets into groove

Slowly but surely, Terrence Romeo is finding his groove with San Miguel Beermen. Terrence has posted season-highs in back-to-back games, following up a 17-point output against Blackwater with a 23-point showing against Magnolia Sunday. Romeo was balanced and efficient against the Hotshots, scoring at least five points per quarter all while shooting 80 percent from the field. He’s slowly integrating himself with the Beermen, a process that was delayed with an untimely injury during the season-opener. “Ini-isip ko pa rin kun paano makakapag-blend sa team,” Romeo said. “”Di ako pwede makuntento sa isa o dalawang game kasi hindi yun yung goal eh. Ang goal namin is mapuntahan kung saan namin gusto mapunta. So para makarating kami dun kailangan maging consistent ako, kaming lahat,” he added. Terrence getting into a groove coincides with the Beermen picking up steam as a whole team. After a below .500 start, San Miguel has won back-to-back games for the first time for a 4-3 record. “At least alam namin sa sarili namin na kaya naming manalo,” Romeo said. “Siguro mas kailangan na lang namin maging ready, mas paghandaan yung next game namin after ng pahinga,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Terrence Romeo solely focused on basketball for SMB

In his first two games with the San Miguel, high-scoring guard Terrence Romeo saw his Beermen come up short both times.  San Miguel would go on to win two outings, but Romeo would be sidelined with an injury for both victories.  Tonight however, San Miguel's newest acquisition was on the court to help his team to a third straight W.  With all the fanfare surrounding his trade from the TNT KaTropa, all Romeo wants now is to play no-frills basketball, his eyes solely focused on getting as much time as he can on the floor. "Gusto ko lang magbasketball. Manalo. Makatulong sa team," the multiple-time scoring champ said. For his part, the Bro tallied career-highs with his new San Miguel squad, Wednesday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena, scoring 17 points, pulling down 5 rebounds, and dishing out 4 assists in over 24 minutes of action. Now at an even 3-3, San Miguel is looking to have favorable results in their final five games of the Philippine Cup in order take some momentum heading to the playoffs, where they will defend their title for the fourth straight year. With the 93-79 win over Blackwater, San Miguel has moved on and will set their sights against sister team Magnolia. "Marami pa kaming dapat ayusin. Marami pa kaming dapat i-correct. Di magiging madali mga next game namin so kailangan namin mag-focus. Yung game na to, makalimutan na namin, tignan yung mga pagkakamali namin tapos pagdating sa next game, sana ma-scout namin ng maayos yung Magnolia and ma-execute namin yung plays namin," said Romeo. For mentor Leo Austria, the team will always be behind the mercurial guard's back, as he works himself back to form. "Terrence, slowly, he was able to recover from his injury, and he's trying to get to his rhythm. I'm happy with his teammates, dahil they keep on supporting Terrence eh. And Terrence naman, alam natin anytime, once na he gets into his rhythm, I think everybody will be happy for him."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

Review: Thank U, Next: Maroon 5′s Super Bowl halftime show was basic

There are a number of words you could use to describe Maroon 5s halftime show performance: Empty. Boring. Basic. Sleepy. Skippable. Unfulfilling. Unnecessary. And those who came to help save the day didn't do their jobs: If you blinked you would have missed that Travis Scott and Big Boi performed. Even the gospel choir singer was a struggle --- clearly they let the wrong one sing lead Sunday. Adam Levine and friends kicked off the performance as fireworks burst from a stage designed like the letter "M," which should have stood for "magic," because they needed some. It started off on the right note, actually. "Harder to Breathe," the band's amazing debut rock song, was rousin...Keep on reading: Review: Thank U, Next: Maroon 5′s Super Bowl halftime show was basic.....»»

Chiefs QB Mahomes takes MVP and top offensive player awards

By Barry Wilner, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Patrick Mahomes' breathtaking breakthrough season earned him the NFL's Most Valuable Player award. The Chiefs quarterback landed a pair of honors at NFL Honors on Saturday night, taking The Associated Press 2018 MVP and Offensive Player of the Year awards. In his second pro season, Mahomes led Kansas City to its first AFC title game since 1993 with some of the most creative and clutch plays the league has seen in years. "I'm so humbled," he said. "This is just the beginning. We've got a long ways to go." Mahomes received 41 votes from a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees got the other nine. With only one previous start, Mahomes entered the season as something of a curiosity in Kansas City after the Chiefs traded veteran Alex Smith to open up the job. It didn't take long to erase any doubts as Mahomes led the Chiefs to their first AFC title game since the 1993 season, throwing for 50 touchdowns, 5,097 yards and had a 113.8 QB rating, trailing only Brees. Mahomes' ingenuity — the guy can throw from all angles and make plays inside and outside the pocket — energized the Chiefs' fan base and excited fans across the league. "The play is never dead. He can find new ways to get you the ball," Chiefs All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce said. "It may look like a screwball, a slider here or there, but it'll get to you eventually." Mahomes is the sixth straight quarterback and 11th of the past 12 years to win MVP. No Kansas City player had won the award since the Chiefs joined the NFL in 1970. Earlier, he was selected as the top offensive player, beating Brees 30 votes to 16. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who will play in Sunday's Super Bowl against New England, took his second straight Defensive Player of the Year award. Donald, the only unanimous All-Pro this season and the first Rams player selected for top defensive honor, joins Lawrence Taylor and J.J. Watt as players to win the award in back-to-back seasons. Donald led the NFL with 20½ sacks. "Any time you put a body of work into it and then it pays off," Donald said, "and you're rewarded for it, it means a lot. It's a blessing." Chicago's Matt Nagy, in his first season with the Bears, was voted Coach of the Year. Nagy has overseen the development of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who blossomed in his second pro season, and saw a defense befitting the "Monsters of the Midway" dominate opponents at times. He is the fifth Bears coach to win the award, joining team founder George Halas (1963, 1965), Mike Ditka (1985, 1988), Dick Jauron (2001) and Lovie Smith (2005). "It's crazy to think this is one person, so for me, it's being a part of this organization and for our players," Nagy said. "Just being able to believe in what we wanted to do with our culture and then follow through with it." Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was chosen the Comeback Player of the Year, following a lost 2017 season to a shoulder injury with a sensational 2018 campaign. "I truly believe there are players on every team, every roster that could be Comeback Player of the Year in their own ways," he said. "Honestly, the best part was playing football again — having fun playing football and being pain free." Giants running back Saquon Barkley was the top offensive rookie, while the defensive rookie award went to Indianapolis linebacker Darius Leonard. Described by some as a "generational running back," Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards and 11 touchdowns behind a weak New York offensive line. He drew 26½ votes and edged Baker Mayfield. The Cleveland quarterback who was selected first overall in the draft, one spot in front of Barkley, earned 21½ votes. Barkley also made a team-high 91 receptions for 721 yards, and his 2,028 yards from scrimmage led the NFL. For his work as defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, Vic Fangio got the head coaching gig in Denver. He also won The Associated Press 2018 NFL Assistant Coach of the Year Award on Saturday. Philadelphia Eagles DE Chris Long won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for community service......»»
