first_imgOn Tuesday night, Phish played their first of a two-night run at Camden, NJ’s BB&T Pavilion (formerly Susquehanna Bank Center, the E Centre, and the Tweeter Center), returning to the venue for the first time since June 10th, 2011. Fans were eager to get back to the southern-New Jersey shed that Phish has played some noteworthy performances at in the past.Phish opened up the show with “Crowd Control”, as the Undermind gem made its 2018 debut. The set continued with a bouncy “No Men In No Man’s Land”, before Phish dialed things in and took “Blaze On” on a nice 11-minute romp, which included some noteworthy guitar work by Trey Anastasio. “Lawnboy” followed, a song that will forever be engraved in people’s minds after last summer’s monstrous excursion, giving way to Mike Gordon’s recently debuted “Infinite”, played for the second time ever. Keeping it old school, Phish worked through “Wilson”, “Roggae”, and “Rift”, which gave way to a rocking “46 Days”. A smoothly segued “Sparkle” into “David Bowie” brought the hot first set to a close.Moving to set two, Phish opened with a monstrous 24-minute “Down With Disease”, easily surpassing the previously three played renditions this summer. The jam was complex and intricate, veering in different directions throughout its path, with a Page McConnell-led power-rock segment; blissful, fluffy territory; and a hard-hitting Anastasio guitar build-up, leading to the culmination of one of the summer’s top jams. Meaty renditions of “Backwards Down The Numberline” and Big Boat‘s “I Always Wanted It This Way”, before the band took a breather with Anastasio’s delicate and heartfelt “Miss You”. The band continued to see the light between their minds, as Phish took “Light” on a length 16-minute voyage, before the classic “Mike’s Song”> “I Am Hydrogen”> “Weekapaug Groove” segue brought the Tuesday night heater to a close. The band encored “Show Of Life”, marking the Anastasio/Steve “Dude of Life” Pollak co-written ballad’s first appearance since 2016.You can watch pro-shot footage of Camden’s massive “Down With Disease” below:Phish – “Down With Disease” [Pro-Shot][Video: Phish]Phish’s summer tour continues tomorrow with a performance in Raleigh, NC.

first_imgThelma Williams…won first round of lawsuit Trinidadian gymnast Thema Williams has come out the winner in the first round of a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Trinidad and Tobago Gymnastics Federation (TTGF).High Court Judge Frank Seepersad, ruled against the TTGF on a preliminary issue which was raised by its attorneys during a previous hearing in January.The attorneys had contended that the High Court was not the proper forum for the matter to be head and that it should instead be resolved by way of dispute resolution.According to TTGF’s defence, Clause 4 of Williams’ Athlete’s Agreement with the Federation expressly provides that all disputes arising out of or connected with the agreement were subject to resolution exclusively through the procedures set out by the TTGF by-laws and/or, if appropriate, through the procedures of the TT Olympic Committee.Williams is seeking $11.38 million in compensation from the TTGF for its alleged “harsh and oppressive” actions against her which shattered her dream of qualifying for the Olympic Games held last August. Williams was replaced by alternate athlete Marisa Dick who instead participated in the event.The case was adjourned to May 15, when there will be a case management hearing.last_img read more

first_imgAtlético de Madrid’s triumph on Wednesday against Liverpool at Anfield returned the Atletico team to the Champions League quarterfinals three years later, once it did not reach such an instance of the maximum European competition from the 2016-17 academic year, when he was eliminated in the semifinals of the competition by Real Madrid at Vicente Calderón, on May 10, 2017.Until then, he had always reached at least the quarterfinals under the command of Argentine coach Diego Simeone. In 2013-14 and 2015-16 he reached the final, when he was defeated in the decisive duel by Real Madrid; in 2016-17 until the mentioned semifinals; and in 2014-15 up to the quarters. And since then he had not succeeded in either of the two previous campaigns. It did not do so in 2017-18, the first year of existence of the Wanda Metropolitano. Not even passed the group stageBecause he only won one of his six games (2-0 against Roma at the Madrid stadium). Of the rest he only lost one (1-2 with Chelsea), but tied four (0-0 and 1-1 with Qarabag, 0-0 with Roma and 1-1 with Chelsea); an unacceptable deficit to finish between the first two, especially when two of those tied were against the modest team of Azerbaijan, one of them before their audience. Then, months later, he won the Europa League.He also did not reach the quarters last year, in 2018-19. Second in his group, behind Borussia Dortmund, because he was unable to beat Bruges on the last date (0-0), the rojiblanco team multiplied the complexity of their round of 16 matchup when facing Juventus. Although he won 2-0 at the Metropolitano, in Turin he fell flat against Cristiano Ronaldo with a sonorous 3-0. One swipe.This Wednesday he broke that barrier again, with a 2-3 win in overtime at Anfield against Liverpool, as he has already done on four of the six previous occasions of the Diego Simeone era. With the Argentine coach, who took office in late 2011, Atlético did not miss that appointment in his first four appearances under the command of ‘Cholo’. Neither in 2013-14 nor in 2015-16, when he reached the final and was runner-up, nor in 2016-17, when he reached the semifinals, nor in 2014-15, when he was eliminated in the quarters. Real Madrid beat him in all four.Atlético has played the quarterfinals of the European Cup or the Champions League nine times – ten with which it will play this season – throughout its fifteen participations in the tournament, including the current one, in its history.Of these, in six he advanced to at least the semifinals. In three he even went further, to the final, in 1973-74, 2013-14 and 2015-16. He was runner-up in all three, in the first in the tiebreaker game against Bayern Munich and in the following two in overtime and penalties, respectively, against Real Madrid. And in three others, he passed fourths and stayed in the penultimate round: in 2016-17 and 1958-59, against Real Madrid, and in 1970-71 against Ajax.Instead, in the remaining three he was eliminated in the quarterfinals: in 2014-15, by Real Madrid; in 1996-97, by Ajax, and in 1977-78, by Bruges.– Atlético’s record in the European Cup:2019-20:?2018-19: Round of 16.
