Column: A Super stinker, Patriots prevail but ugliness wins

first_imgSEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Grace Poe files bill to protect govt teachers from malicious accusations When Adam Levine ripped off his shirt during the halftime show, it was quickly apparent that tattoos would far outnumber points in the A-T-L.Come to think of it, Maroon 5 might have benefited the most from this one.Their lame, off-key performance was probably the highlight of the night.The Rams needed until deep into the third quarter to finally surpass 100 yards, on a drive that resulted in their only points. Greg Zuerlein booted a 53-yard field goal that tied the game at 3 with just over two minutes remaining in the period, and it looked like Los Angeles might actually have a chance to pull out a game it had no business winning.After Michel’s TD, Los Angeles gave itself one more chance. Driving briskly into New England territory, the Rams had first down at the 27 when Goff lofted a pass toward the right pylon with Brandin Cooks breaking into the clear. But Patriots second-string safety Duron Harmon, in the game after Patrick Chung sustained what looked to be a broken arm, came flying over to level Cooks just as the ball was slipping through the receiver’s hands at the goal line.Cooks conceded afterward that it was a catch he should’ve made, but he was hardly alone in that category.On the very next play, Huron came at Goff on a blitz. The young quarterback flinched with the safety in his face, wobbling up a pass that was easily picked off by Stephon Gilmore.New England drove the other way for the clinching field goal.With eight seconds remaining, the Rams sent on Zuerlein to attempt a 48-yard field goal, knowing the only remote chance they had to force OT was to get three points, pull an onside kick and heave a desperation pass toward the end zone on the final play.Zuerlein was money all season, and especially in the NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints, when he tied it up with a 48-yard field goal and won the game in overtime with a booming 57-yard effort. “You’ve got to grind it out and find a way,” said Brady, delivering a drab quote that perfectly fit the occasion.Stephen Gostkowski clinched it for the Patriots, barely guiding a 41-yard field goal inside the left upright with 1:12 remaining to make it a two-score game.What a blessing.The last thing anyone needed was the Rams having any chance to send this monstrosity to overtime.Taking nothing away from a stout defensive effort by both teams, this lackluster affair seemed more the result of two offenses that never found their footing — especially the youthful Rams and their 24-year-old quarterback, Jared Goff.There were plenty of silly mistakes, the kind of plays you normally see when teams are working through the kinks coming of training camp. Both teams were flagged for having two men in motion at the same time. The Rams were penalized for a false start when lined up on second down needing less than a yard. One of their better plays was negated by a holding penalty. They even got caught with too many men on the field.“We just played bad today,” running back C.J. Anderson said.With just over a minute to go, after the Rams were called for yet another holding penalty, the press box announcer summed it up best after accidentally leaving his mic on.“Ughhhhhhh,” he moaned, snapping the assembled media out their slumber.It was the lowest-scoring game in Super Bowl history, eclipsing a 21-point snoozer in 1973 when Miami capped its perfect season with an ugly victory over Washington that had least had a bit of comic relief: kicker Garo Yepremian’s ridiculous attempt to throw a pass. ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes LATEST STORIES Reliable as ever, Patriots’ Julian Edelman wins Super Bowl MVP Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants It was the only time all evening that either team reached the red zone.That brief burst of offense was enough to carry the Patriots to a 13-3 victory , but this game will be remembered as an unworthy finale to a thrilling season.

Asian Games: Ritu Rani believes in her golden destiny

first_imgRitu Rani has a dream – that she’ll put the poverty of her family behind her; that the team she captains, the Indian women’s hockey team, will succeed in reaching and winning a medal at the 2016 Rio di Janeiro Olympics.A gold medal in Incheon will guarantee the women an appearance in Brazil, though it’s easier said than done as strong countries like South Korea and China are also in fray.At the flag-hoisting ceremony at the Games Village on Thursday, Ritu was initially pensive as the athletes waited to enter the huge ground. After the formalities were over, the star player from Shahbad couldn’t stop talking about how the hard work put in by the team was on the verge of paying off.”Hamaara din aane waala hai [our day is about to come],” she said.Life has not been easy for Ritu. Unlike the pampered Indian cricketers, she has had to slog on and off the field. Ritu isn’t afraid to state that she comes from a poor family and that her father is a cart-puller. “I can never forget my background. I am the bread winner and I support the family as well with a salary of `11,000,” said Ritu, who works in the Indian Railways as a clerk in Shahbad.In order to earn a better living, the India captain says she is not averse to moving out of Shahbad. “But it has to be a government job,” is her only condition.last_img

In response to another question, Obama credited America for the success of China in the past three decades. “They were essentially riding on our backs for the last 30 years because we were underwriting peace, security, the free flow of commerce, international rules in the financial sector,” he said. “You cant simply pursue an export-driven strategy, because you are too big.You are not going to be able to grow your economy at the same pace over the next 20 years that you did in the last 20 years,” he said. “You have got to be concerned about environmental issues, because you cant breathe in Beijing.And that spills over for all of us.As a large country with a powerful military, you cant go around pushing your little neighbours just because you are bigger, but you have to start abiding by a basic code of conduct and a set of rules, because ultimately, you will be advantaged by everybody following the rules,” he noted. “I think in other areas, they still see themselves as the poor country that shouldnt have any obligations internationally.In some cases, they still feel that when we call them on issues like their behaviour in the South China Sea, or on intellectual property theft, that we are trying to contain them as opposed to us just wanting them to abide by the same rules that helped create an environment in which they can rise,” Obama said.

Anurag Thakur set to become BCCI chief

first_imgAnurag_2644989f SHARE × Published on cricket Anurag Thakur is set to be unanimously elected BCCI President in the Board’s Special General Meeting (SGM) here tomorrow, replacing Shashank Manohar who stepped down from the position to take up the ICC chief’s job.Thakur, who is currently serving as the Secretary of the board, is set to be proposed for the job by East Zone, whose turn it is to project the candidate for the coveted post.Thakur, also a BJP MP in Lok Sabha, has the backing of all the east zone members including Bengal, Assam, Jharkhand, Tripura and the National Cricket Club.The 41-year-old will be taking over the reins of the embattled Board in rather tough times as the BCCI is facing heat from the Supreme Court to implement the Justice RM Lodha Committee’s recommendations for sweeping reforms.Manohar’s exit from the top post barely seven months into his tenure has necessitated the election of the new chief of the world’s richest and most powerful cricket body.He was elected as ICC’s first independent chairman on May 12.Once Thakur is elected unopposed, it would be his prerogative to pick his replacement for the Secretary’s position.According to sources, Maharashtra Cricket Association chief and business magnate Ajay Shirke is the top contender for the post.Shirke, however, has made it clear that he will not “stand in a queue” to get a post in the Board.“…I have never put myself in contention for any top job within the BCCI nor do I have any goals of getting any posts.My name may be doing the rounds as you say, and it might look to many that I am myself pushing my name in the media, which I have never done,” he had stated.The SGM will be followed by the working committee meeting of the Board.“Agenda for the meeting is a normal one,” sources said.

first_imgBangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan said Virat Kohli is the key player for India, but his team cannot take other batsmen lightly either as they are all match-winners.Even though the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Suresh Raina have not been among runs, Shakib said his team will not take any of the Indian batsmen lightly. (Also read: India look to boost run rate against rattled Bangladesh) “Obviously he (Kohli) is key player for India. They (Rohit, Dhawan, Raina) are all match-winners and yes, they have not been among runs, but we have to be on the watch-out because India has the world’s best batting lineup. So, we need to be careful and we need to be very disciplined with our bowling and fielding to restrict them,” Shakib told reporters on the eve of Bangladesh-India encounter.Shakib said toss might play a crucial role but his team has to play good cricket against India. (India geared to flex muscles against Bangladesh )”It is important for both the team. Toss might play a crucial part, but it is more important how we play in the middle. We have to be careful because India is playing for the trophy. We need to be very disciplined in batting and bowling. We need to play our best tomorrow,” he said. (Sourav Ganguly backs under fire Suresh Raina)Asked how the team has responded to Arafat Sunny and Taskin Ahmed’s suspension, Shakib said, “Obviously it is disappointing to lose two crucial players at crucial situation, but we cannot help because there is nothing in our hands. We have to move forward and need to focus on tomorrow’s game. That’s all.”advertisementDespite Ahmed’s ICC suspension, Shakib said “the team still has the ability to do well in tomorrow’s match”.”Obviously (it has affected us) as he was bowling well for us for the last six months. Yes, he was important part of the team, but it is not that everything is over for him.”Shakib said it is up to captain and coach to send Mahmudullah up the order but it all depends on match situation.”It is totally up to captain and coach. He batted No. 5 for some time. It all depends on situation and match condition,” he said.Asked about the condition of Tamim Iqbal, Shakib said, “I am not sure whether he will be fit for tomorrow or not. I haven’t met him. So, I don’t know about it.”Shakib said it was disappointing to drop some crucial catches against Australia.”Obviously fielding is the crucial part of the game and we would love to take all the catches to save runs, and we couldn’t do it yesterday. It is was disappointing because we have young and outstanding fielders. Hopefully, we will not make same mistakes, which we made yesterday because we have been doing really well in terms of fielding,” he said.Talking about the wicket, Shakib said, “It is a very good wicket, but for the last two games, the ball is gripping.

Assembly polls: Star war in Pathanapuram

first_imgPathanapuram (Ker), Apr 29 (PTI) Keralas Pathanapuram constituency will literally witness a star war in the May 16 Assembly polls as three film actors cross swords in their bid to wrest the segment.Sitting MLA K B Ganesh Kumar of Kerala Congress (B), known for his heroic and character roles, has been backed by LDF while Jagadish, popular comedian and TV host, has been roped in by UDF and BJP has put up Raghu Damodaran alias Bheeman Raghu, who played a villain in many movies.The three actors have set aside their tinsel town friendships and are aggressively campaigning against each other to woo voters.While it is an electoral debut for Jagadish and Raghu, Kumar will look to retain the constituency, where he had gotten 71,421 votes in the 2011 polls.In what may be seen as irony, 49-year-old Kumar, who had won the constituency thrice in a row from 2001 under the UDF banner, is now seeking his fourth stint under the LDF bandwagon.His opponents have taken up this association with LDF as a major campaign tool against him, terming it an example of political opportunism.Kumar and his party had distanced from Congress-led UDF after he quit the present Oommen Chandy government as minister of Forests, Sports and Cinema following a domestic violence case filed against him by his former wife on April 7, 2013.It was not a smooth sailing for Kumar when joining the LDF fold initially as there were rumblings over his candidature as he had made some objectionable comments against CPI(M) veteran V S Achutanandan during his tenure as minister in the Chandy government.
