Patriots

“It’s really cool that we are all together.”

Mac Jones has been the center of praise among fans, players and members of the media in recent weeks.

As the Patriots continue to win games, the fan base adoration for quarterback Mac Jones continues to grow.

Jones had the best stats among his fellow rookie quarterbacks, which helped the Patriots win five straight games to advance to the playoffs with a 7-4 record. In turn, Patriots fans showed their appreciation for Jones, making signs such as “Mac-achusetts” to bring to games.

However, New England’s appreciation for Jones began before the recent winning streak. After being named the team’s starting quarterback in August, Jones’ jersey has grown into one of football’s best-selling jerseys.

In an interview on Friday’s “Patriots All-Access”, Jones admitted that he was aware of all the hype around him in recent weeks.

“I try not to go on social media or anything like that, so I don’t really pay attention to it,” Jones told WBZ’s Steve Burton. “But at the same time, it’s great to see our fans supporting us, doing the right things and cheering loudly on match days – that’s the most important thing.

“I think there is some creative stuff there. It was cool to see all the creative minds and see how they can take all of our players and turn them into a jersey or make a cool banner.

The rookie quarterback also admitted he was a bit moved to see fans wearing his jersey.

“I just come back to when I was little and when I wanted to [wear a player’s jersey] or watch them on game day, ”Jones said. “Whether it’s a young person or an elderly person, it doesn’t really matter. It’s really cool that we all come together to support the Patriots and win.

As Jones settles into his new home, he said New England was all he expected – but that may soon change for the person who grew up in Florida.

“It hasn’t been very cold yet, we’ll see how that goes,” Jones said with a laugh. “But I’ll try to get used to it as quickly as possible.”

“People were, like, shocked,” Mr. Durr said. They said, ‘No one has ever been here. “”

Mr Durr said he hoped to keep his job as a truck driver for the furniture chain Raymour & Flanigan, and the health insurance it provides, even after being sworn in as a senator, a part-time position. which brings in $ 49,000. Legislators who took office after 2010 are not eligible for health coverage.

He rides a 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle, spoils his three pit bulls – “I call them my furry babies” – and, along with his five siblings, looks after his mother, a recent widow who lives next door.

Before joining the furniture business, he worked in construction and said he often had multiple jobs including baking for Dunkin ‘Donuts and working at a farm supply store. For two growing seasons he drove trucks for East Coast Sod and Seed.

“He was on time,” said Andy Mottel, manager of the Pilesgrove, NJ farm, which hauls turf across the country and supplies field grass for Yankee Stadium. “He worked every day. He has that strong voice – very knowledgeable about the sport.

Mr Durr finished his GED at Gloucester City High School, and he made no secret of his unease at his sudden stardom. (“I feel like I’m about to throw up,” he said the day Mr Sweeney conceded.) He will be a member of the Minority Party in State House, which makes it unlikely that he has an important power to direct or block legislation.

When he ticks off his legislative priorities, he mentions goals like “create jobs here, bring businesses here,” and he’s the first to say he has a lot to learn about how Trenton works. “If this is an issue that concerns the citizens of New Jersey, I will fight for it,” he said.

It was his fourth campaign for public office. He ran for the State Assembly as an Independent in 2017 and as a Republican in 2019, and he ran for Logan City Council last year.

‘A special moment’: After covering the Eagles for 19 years, a reporter watches a game with his sons https://officialpenguinssite.com/a-special-moment-after-covering-the-eagles-for-19-years-a-reporter-watches-a-game-with-his-sons/ Wed, 24 Nov 2021 15:02:24 +0000 https://officialpenguinssite.com/a-special-moment-after-covering-the-eagles-for-19-years-a-reporter-watches-a-game-with-his-sons/ In a way, it wasn’t new to me, watching through binoculars an Eagles player pick up a fumble and take off.

In a way, it wasn’t new to me, watching through binoculars an Eagles player pick up a fumble and take off.

The way the view through the lenses went up and down was a little different. A brave contingent of Eagles fans trampled and rocked the metal stalls in the end zone we were sitting in at Empower Field in Denver.

Then there was my son, Dan, to my left, screaming, “Come down! Get off! ”- a warning that would prove to be misguided – as Darius Slay slashed down the middle, dropped the ball, picked it up again, made his way to the sideline and accelerated 83 yards for the touchdown that went defined the Eagles from Nov. 30 to 13. Nov. 14 victory over the Broncos.

I spent 19 years covering the Eagles for NFL press boxes, who tend not to jump up and down. I’m sure Dan and his older brother Matt gave a lot of off-the-cuff advice to Eagles players and coaches during this time, but I was never sitting down with them to hear it.

I retired from The Inquirer in August at age 65. Matt is 32 years old. Dan is 28 years old. Scores of fathers and sons in the Delaware Valley have spent two decades closely following the struggles of the Eagles, never watching a game together, in person?

There’s a video of Matt at a friend’s house in South Jersey crying tears of joy as he talks on the phone with Dan at the end of the Eagles’ win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII. I was not involved in their celebration; I was running into US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, tie askew, reporting and writing a Doug Pederson story.

Retirement is a scary word. To embrace it you have to get past the idea that with the end of your working life you are just counting the days until you get rid of that deadly coil. (Hey, we’re counting all these days, some of us just don’t have to fill out expense reports anymore.)

I’m grateful, today, to be retired, because so far this has been what I envisioned – a chance to be there for my family in a way I couldn’t have be during my 43 year career as a journalist.

When the NFL calendar came out last spring, I hadn’t decided to hang up my laptop yet. We discussed making the trip to Denver a family occasion, although we knew that when it came time to play I would be working, as was the case when the boys and sometimes my wife, Barbara, attended games at the Lincoln Financial Field.

There has always been this barrier. Dan’s wife, Brelyn, is from a large extended family, the Howards, who host home games around a rigged Kelly Green bus. The last few years I would stop on my way to the press box, contact everyone, but they were fans having fun, and I was a drove guy to work. No beer for me, thank you very much anyway.

That day, the barrier had finally fallen, neither a tie nor a press card hung around my neck. Sure, there was beer, from a concession run by a local brewery. The afternoon sun was reflected on our faces in Section 117, Row 41, Seats 7-10, Bowen and Brelyn’s three men.

Matt works and lives in Denver now, as does Eagles fan seated to his right, Noah of Cape May County, who wore the jersey of fellow South Jersey native, ex-Eagle Corey Clement. Matt still proudly represents Connor Barwin’s number 98; for Dan, it’s Malcolm Jenkins’ 27.

I was wearing an old olive green LL Bean long sleeve polo shirt, which was kind of a compromise. The boys and Brelyn thought the shirt I had planned to wear mimicked the Broncos orange and blue too closely. I explained that I’m not really, you know, a FAN, even though I’m retired and sitting in the stands. I still do journalism here and there. I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing an Eagles jersey. (If I ever felt comfortable it would be in Brandon Graham’s 55, by the way.) So I donned the well-traveled olive polo shirt.

The gaming experience was almost perfect, as was the whole weekend. I was sorry Barbara missed it. She stayed home with our dog because she’s not a big fan of long flights, and we had just visited Matt and Clare in Denver about seven weeks earlier, as they moved into their new home (which happened to be within walking distance of the stadium). That September visit, too, was something I couldn’t have handled before I retired.

The mood of our November afternoon at Empower Field was not reminiscent of Field of dreams. The boys and Brelyn are adults. There weren’t many “Jeepers, daddy, there’s Jalen Hurts!” But we were together in awe of Slay’s feat and bemoaning another Derek Barnett penalty, watching in amazement as K’Von Wallace blocked a basket and apprehension as Kenny Gainwell missed a blitzer, causing Hurts to intercept.

It would have been great to have done this, say, 15 years earlier, when the boys were younger and wide eyed. But this time in our lives is also precious. Dan and Brelyn are newlyweds and move to Baltimore after their graduate studies at LSU. Matt and Clare (she’s not from Philly and opted for peace and quiet on game day) are new owners whose adaptation to an adopted western town has been delayed by the pandemic.

Getting together for an Eagles game isn’t going to get any easier. I will continue to age. For them there could be babies and more movements and complications that we cannot predict.

But we were there that day, united by a golden, happy, healthy afternoon talking about our lives, hopes and memories, as the Eagles put on one of their best performances ever. these last years.

We then lingered, as many Eagles fans did, taking celebratory photos. Debbie from Cinnaminson, who was also visiting a son who had moved to Denver, offered to pick up one of our party members.

Normally by then I would have rushed into the press conference room, thinking about what to ask, what to write. Instead, I watched the boys and Brelyn bask in the stride. Fans who had gathered around the Eagles tunnel cheered on every start, with some players stopping to sign autographs. We tried to determine who had received the loudest standing ovations.

Dan said his next challenge would be to properly introduce me and his mom to tailgating. Matt said he wanted to provide me with something sharp and witty to include here, but decided “it was just a really special moment, and I think I’m going to leave it there.”

I know I will remember this game much more vividly than most of the 350+ I have covered.

I had a very different point of view.

Because Dairon Asprilla’s dad never got to see his son play for the Timbers, the Portland forward brings a memory of him to every game.

Underneath her jersey, Asprilla wears an Arcadio Asprilla T-shirt and a heart. When Asprilla scores, he lifts his jersey, revealing the photo.

It’s his way of keeping his late father – whom he calls his superhero – close.

Arcadio Asprilla suffered from claustrophobia and could not visit Portland from his native Colombia due to the confined spaces on planes. Elder Asprilla even struggled to get around in the car.

“Having the jersey motivates me on the pitch and makes me feel like it’s with me,” said Asprilla. “Because when he was still here, even in Colombia, he was always with me at my games, so it’s just my way of dedicating my career to him, but also just feeling like he’s with me.”

Last year, when her father passed away at 60, Asprilla was devastated. It didn’t help that he was sidelined by injury and that the pandemic has largely isolated him from his family and friends.

But the overwhelming moment also gave Asprilla a new resolve: he would make her father proud. He would put his career, which had failed in recent years, back on track.

“He was my role model and my friend besides just being my dad,” Asprilla said. “I admired him all the time. And it was the biggest part of me to be successful in my career. So he was just still there. “

Asprilla has scored 10 goals this season, more than all of his previous years with the Timbers combined.

He is up for the Major League Soccer Goal of the Year for an acrobatic cycling goal from outside the box that secured Portland’s 2-0 victory over the San Jose earthquakes on October 27. .

There is a log that is at the north end of Providence Park. After each Timbers goal, a slab is cut from the log and presented to the player who scored.

In a twist, after scoring that goal, Asprilla climbed to the top of the log and gestured with both arms outstretched towards the fan section of the Timber Army, which went on a rampage.

“Goal of the Year – that’s it,” Portland coach Giovanni Savarese said afterwards. “I mean, an incredible goal.”

The brash celebration contrasted with Asprilla’s soft-spoken demeanor off the pitch. The 29-year-old is learning English, but during interviews he always prefers to speak Spanish with an interpreter.

Asprilla, now in his seventh season with the Timbers, has had some ups and downs in Portland, shuttling between the senior squad and the lower division Timbers 2 in 2018 and 2019. He then spent the major. part of 2020 injured.

But he still seems to be important to the Timbers late in the season, which has earned him the nickname “Mr. October. In 2019, he scored against the San Jose earthquakes on decision day, helping secure a place for Portland in the playoffs.

In 2018, he was the hero of Portland’s two-legged Western Conference semi-final victory over the Seattle Sounders. Asprilla scored in overtime and then buried the decisive penalty.

Asprilla said he gained confidence by gaining more playing time.

“I always had my head held high and gave it my all, but I think in the last few years I’ve been lacking in opportunities and in the confidence. Now I have this. I have the confidence of our head coach and I have complete confidence with my teammates, ”he said. “So that helped me a lot on the pitch. “

Asprilla has matured and it shows, Savarese said.

“He gave us what we need. He’s been very consistent, not only in the job he’s done to be important and give us a lot of different things, but most of all he’s been prolific in scoring goals, ”said Savarese.

Asprilla will once again be in a rush to make the playoffs Sunday, when the fourth-seeded Timbers host fifth-seeded Minnesota in the first round of the playoffs.

His father will undoubtedly be with him in spirit.

“It was really tough, but it made me stronger in a way I didn’t know,” he said of his struggles last year. my everything – and show who Dairon Asprilla is. “

Former Arsenal and Manchester City defender Bacary Sagna admitted he was concerned that giving the Gunners No.10 shirt to midfielder Emile Smith Rowe could negatively affect his youth career.

The Arsenal midfielder has been in sensational form so far this season, scoring four goals and providing two assists.

And his performances did not go unnoticed by the coaches of England’s senior national team as he received his first Three Lions call-up from Gareth Southgate.

When signing a new long-term contract at Arsenal this summer, the 20-year-old boldly asked to wear the Gunners No.10 shirt.

Arsenal’s number 10 shirt had previously been worn by club legends such as Dennis Bergkamp, ​​Robin Van Persie, Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil.

Sagna admitted he was worried and believed the decision to wear such a prestigious shirt would have a negative impact.

“He was amazing. He impressed me a lot. At first I wasn’t sure Arsenal would give him number 10. I thought it was a bit early, but he’s mature for his age and has shown he deserves it, ”he said. declared exclusively to Metro.

“Sometimes when you have players wearing No 10 they think they already did and I was afraid he was under too much pressure and how he was going to handle that.

“Playing for Arsenal is not easy and with his responsibilities now for the national team it could be a lot. But he has been brilliant for the club, in all aspects of the game he is not hiding on the pitch.

RANGERS and Northern Ireland hero Steven Davis showed his class outside the park as well as inside last night when he realized a young fan was on the point of leaving the stadium empty-handed.

The Gers star, 36, captained his country during his 132nd selection for the national team in the 0-0 draw against Italy last night.

Davis shakes hands with manager Ian Baraclough after last night’s resultCredit: AFP

It was an empty match in terms of qualifying for the Green and White Army as they found themselves too many points behind Italy and Switzerland.

That didn’t stop them from putting on the show and they held the European Champions to a goalless draw at Windsor Park.

Davis showed off his class after the game as he stayed to chat with the fans and gave them his worn out match shirt.

He gave away his tracksuit top and shirt to the fans before realizing he had nothing else to give the other hopeful young fans.

Some would leave it there and go back to the locker room after interacting with so many supporters.

But Davis decided to head back to the locker room to grab another top so he could make a fan’s day.

The Rangers star is a fan favorite among his home support as he is the most capped Britain international ever after breaking Peter Shilton’s record 125 in March against Bulgaria.

The Northern Ireland skipper insists he enjoys playing for his country, but maybe it’s time to think about retirement soon.

Speaking to the BBC after last night’s result, Davis said: “Yes, listen, it will be a very difficult decision any time the day comes.

“You know how much I love wearing the Northern Ireland shirt.

“The moments that I have enjoyed in the jersey, the support I have received from the fans since I first entered the squad, so when that day comes, it won’t be easy to accept.

“I also need to think about it. I brought it up, saying I have to think about the campaign afterwards, talk to the manager, talk to my family.

It’s been a decade, but David Ochoa can still imagine the details of the scene in his mind.

“I remember it perfectly,” said Ochoa, a 20-year-old goalkeeper from Real Salt Lake of Major League Soccer. “It’s a carne asada and all my cousins ​​are there, all my uncles and aunts are there. My aunts cook the beans and rice in the kitchen while my uncles are on the grill. “

His family members have already gathered for a game between the United States and Mexico: the 2011 Gold Cup final. The game begins with Michael Bradley and Landon Donovan giving the Americans a two-goal lead, but El Tri is tied at half-time and advances in the 50th minute. “When he scores that goal everyone gets up and starts screaming and celebrating,” Ochoa continues. “It’s just total joy.”

Of course, “that goal” is the chip from Giovani dos Santos, one of the best goals in the history of CONCACAF’s best rivalry, putting a nice cherry on top of the 4-2 victory.

The scene painted by Ochoa is familiar to thousands of Mexican-Americans, with players like him who have roots in both countries remembering the family reuniting, putting meat on the grill, and commenting in Spanish from Enrique “Perro” Bermudez or Pablo Ramirez providing the soundtrack most weekends. Games between the United States and Mexico, like Friday’s World Cup qualifier in Cincinnati – LIVE broadcast, 9 p.m. ET, ESPN + – were always special occasions.

“When I was growing up it wasn’t like now, where you can watch all the games you want on TV or streamed. Back then we only had a certain number of games,” said Rodrigo Lopez, midfielder of the USL Rio Grande Valley FC Championship team, who was born in Guadalajara and raised in California. “These Mexico games, we would watch them for sure, all gathered at my house or with my dad’s friends to watch the game and have a barbecue.”

Preparation for such an important game “starts early,” said FC Dallas midfielder Edwin Cerrillo, who grew up in a family of Club America supporters in Waco, Texas. “If the game is at 7 am, people are at our house at noon, and my mother is already preparing things to accompany the [meat].

“We would bring an extension cord and take our TV outside because our living room was very small, so we were all watching it in the backyard. Everyone is applauding, eating, the kids are there to watch the game. We always have them. made a big deal. “

The food offered is similar regardless of the region: players remember their families carne asada together, usually with rice and beans to accompany the beef. One of the most important things is salsa – sometimes store-bought, but best when it’s homemade. The question “is this spicy?” Determines the amount that is thrown on the meat, garnished with onion and cilantro.

Botanical – snacks to be picked during the game – include peanuts and chicharron. Aunts and uncles drank beer. Afterwards, they remember, there is no rush to get home, especially on weekends with conversations about the game that continue until late into the night.

Typically, there is little dissent when choosing a rooting interest, with families choosing Mexico, although this has become complicated as players progress through their careers.

“Before Ricardo made his US debut, we were in a Mexican environment – the way we lived and enjoyed the game was as a Mexican family. The Mexico vs USA games were important growing up, but we have always supported El Trisaid Daniel Pepi, father of 18-year-old American forward Ricardo Pepi, from El Paso who chose to accept a call-up to the United States earlier this year and who has already scored three goals in qualifying. for the World Cup.

“Now it’s totally different. We still support Mexico and see it as a country with great football, but now we support the United States 100% and have put the Mexico jersey away. I can’t tell you. how I’m going to feel (Friday) because it’s new to me. “

While Pepi wears the stars and stripes, Ochoa announced his decision to represent Mexico earlier this year, which means his family will be able to continue to don the green shirt of El Tri sitting in front of the TV, although it’s not always that easy.

The fandom that often surrounds the rivalry can turn from friendly to dirty, with accusations of frequent dirty play and gossip, both online and in person, all too often crossing the line. While they still care about their team, Mexican-American players and their families have a rare appreciation not only for the team they play or support, but the other team as well.

“Especially in California there are a lot of people like me, and it’s hard to stay out of the culture,” Ochoa said. “I’m obviously with Mexico and I really want Mexico to win this upcoming game, but at the same time I’m grateful for what the United States has given me, the opportunities they have given me with youth teams on the football side.

“It’s definitely going to be weird for me this time around knowing players from both sides.”

These friendships and an evolving career can begin to send passions in a different direction.

“I was cheering on Mexico, then I got called up to the U-18s and U-20s in the United States, so I started cheering on the United States and fighting my family a bit, but that ‘It’s still a game,’ Lopez said. “I really don’t like anybody now. I’m just trying to enjoy the game. I have friends on both teams, and it’s hard to choose sides.”

In some ways, players told me, it reflects the Mexican-American experience. Family and community members are eager to see the joy and pride in connecting with Mexican roots, while neighbors or teammates may be perplexed when a player who grew up in the United States supports or even represents, the biggest rival of the country.

“You have to be grateful, and I will always love this country – when the two hymns sound, I sing them both. I have love for both countries,” Ochoa said.

No matter what hymn (s) they sing, what jersey the players wear, or how Friday’s game unfolds, the constants remain: For Mexican-American players, matches between Mexico and the United States are all about the game. food, football and, most importantly, family.

Kitx Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection https://officialpenguinssite.com/kitx-spring-2022-ready-to-wear-collection/ https://officialpenguinssite.com/kitx-spring-2022-ready-to-wear-collection/#respond Tue, 09 Nov 2021 22:04:57 +0000 https://officialpenguinssite.com/kitx-spring-2022-ready-to-wear-collection/ Australia recently emerged from a multi-month lockdown. “It’s been another challenging year,” Kit Willow said from her home in Melbourne. “No travel, all the stores are closed and we were homeschooling.” You can’t say Willow didn’t make the most of it, though.

Australia recently emerged from a multi-month lockdown. “It’s been another challenging year,” Kit Willow said from her home in Melbourne. “No travel, all the stores are closed and we were homeschooling.” You can’t say Willow didn’t make the most of it, though.

Its Kitx brand is built on sustainable principles. The principles and practices are not always the same, as a quick Google search on the topic of greenwashing will show. But after the lockdown, the Willows are better aligned than most. In June, during Short Sydney Fashion Week, she announced a new pre-order strategy. “We produce what you buy, which reduces waste and is better for the planet,” she told her followers.

In the meantime and now, as an industry accustomed to moving at high speed has been hampered by labor shortages and freight issues, Willow has set up a Future From Waste Lab. At the Melbourne plant, the landfilled denim is sorted, washed, hung to dry and cut open, then stitched up, photographed and sold, or packaged and shipped. “The whole process is transparent in one place,” she said.

Willow was approached by Australian property development company Beulah and asked to consider the future of retail. “All I know is we have a huge waste problem,” she explained. “If we can create a transparent environment where you see the waste coming in and seeing the production process and either selling it or shipping it, that sounds like the future of retail to me.” Best of all, she shares the facility with other Australian companies who recycle different materials and clothing. T-shirts, let’s say. “Kitx pedal, pedal, pedal, but for real change to go forward we need it to happen across the industry.”

The denim pieces in her new collection were all made from recycled materials at the Future From Waste Lab. Otherwise, and in keeping with her practice of sustainability, Willow began to research the possibilities of the mycelium. There is no mushroom leather, but mushrooms make appearances as a digital print on silk or wool jersey dresses, and as tops hand-crocheted with organic cotton to look like with the frilly and lace skirts of a veiled lady, one of which shines on a t-shirt.

Willow said she plans to show her collection in Paris next March, as she did before COVID, but is skeptical of resuming business as usual. “Do we want normal? ” she asked. Willow doesn’t, and she’s doing something about it.
