Real Madrid ease past Real Sociedad after Barca and Atletico beaten

Madrid (AFP) – Real Madrid stretched their lead at the top of La Liga to eight points on Saturday with a slick 2-0 win over Real Sociedad but the victory was tarnished by an injury to Karim Benzema. Madrid’s eighth consecutive win proved even more valuable after both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona lost, with Atletico undone by Mallorca and Barca succumbing to the impressive Real Betis for their first defeat under Xavi Hernandez. Barcelona stay seventh, now a hefty 16 points behind Real Madrid, w...

This West Side Story Teaser Wants To Pretend This Movie Isn't A Musical For Some Reason

When you think of "West Side Story," the first thing that probably pops into your mind are the extravagant musical numbers, the spectacle of colors, the romance and passion between the young couple at the center of this forbidden love story. The upcoming Steven Spielberg remake has treated all of that as a central focus in the footage we've seen so far ... until this amusing black sheep of a television spot, that is. Even the behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the film we recently showed you made s...

Angels GM Perry Minasian says comments from Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout are to be expected

ARLINGTON, Texas — After hearing his manager and two of his star players express a desire for the Angels to make the changes necessary for the club to win, Perry Minasian reacted with a shrug. “Nobody wants to play on a losing team,” the Angels general manager said from the visitors’ dugout on Tuesday afternoon at Globe Life Field. “That’s something that I would expect everybody to say. Not shocking at all. As far as the winter that doesn’t change anything.” Much was made in some circles – by me...

Vila-real (Spain) (AFP) – Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini said he was “satisfied” after Germany’s Robin Gosens claimed a late equaliser in Tuesday’s 2-2 draw at 10-man Villarreal in the Champions League.

Minor leaguers take aim at Angels for lack of off-the-field support

MINNEAPOLIS — Angels minor leaguers have fired public salvos at the organization, specifically owner Arte Moreno.

The crux of their argument is that players have not been provided the resources to live or eat comfortably while earning minor league salaries. It’s been ...

Spain struggle again as Poland earn vital point in Seville

Spain labor while Poland stay alive in Group E In a group that was touted to be relatively straightforward to navigate for an in-form Spain, the picture that has been painted in Group E with one round left to play is hardly the one that Spanish artistry would have hoped for. Two matches played, two points and just one goal to show for their efforts is hardly the headline that Luis Enrique would have wished for, considering the quiet expectations surrounding a Spanish outfit whom many felt could ...

Spain face fight to reach last 16 after draw with Poland

Seville (Spain) (AFP) – Gerard Moreno missed a penalty and Alvaro Morata squandered the rebound as Spain’s scoring woes struck again on Saturday, a 1-1 draw with Poland leaving them facing a fight to reach the last 16 of Euro 2020. Morata poked in from close range to put Spain in front but Robert Lewandowski’s excellent header, his 60th goal of the season, pulled Poland level before Moreno’s penalty came back off the post.

Why Rita Moreno's comment about 'In the Heights' was terribly wrong

Rita Moreno apologized for remarks made during an interview with Stephen Colbert, but Natasha S. Alford points out that Moreno's dismissive comments about protests against colorism in "In The Heights" seemed not only to dismiss legitimate critique but also echoed a sentiment that is firmly entrenched in many Latinx communities when it comes to any discussion of race: don't touch it. Alford argues that Black Latino's shouldn't have to stay quiet or 'wait' for representation.

Spain draw blank with Sweden in Euro 2020 opener

Seville (Spain) (AFP) – Spain’s new team struggled with the familiar problems on Monday as a string of missed chances allowed Sweden to hang on for a goalless draw in their Euro 2020 opener in Seville.  Alvaro Morata wasted the best opportunity of a dominant first half, in which Spain churned out 419 passes, the most of any team on record in the opening 45 minutes of a European Championship fixture.  But Luis Enrique’s team lost their rhythm after the interval and Sweden might even have won it,...
