Campo – A David Campese Tribute

first_imgSaturday Dec 27, 2008 Campo – A David Campese Tribute One of rugby’s greatest characters, both on and off the pitch. With 64 tries in 101 Tests for Australia, David ‘Campo’ Campese is a true legend of the game. He played to entertain and to enjoy himself. Since his two try debut against the All Blacks in 1982, Campese has represented his country at fullback and on the wing, winning everything from Bledisloe Cups to Grand Slam tours to the 1991 Rugby World Cup. His willingness to take chances and make mistakes resulted in more than a handful of memorable moments, particularly for the Barbarians in 1984 and in the 1991 World Cup Semi Final against New Zealand. Having eventually moved on from playing rugby, Campo took to coaching (The Sharks in Durban, South Africa) as well as running his own sports store in a Sydney suburb. It isn’t often the rugby world witnesses a player as expressive as Campese and to acknowledge this, Rugbydump salutes him with this tribute.

Grandson reminisces about family’s love affair with baseball

first_imgSkip The Wolf Creek team traveled to away games on the flatbed of an old log truck along with as many fans as could pile on.But there was no doubt that the Wolf Creek team was a magnificent baseball team.Jason McLendon’s granddaddy, Olin McLendon, was a member of the Wolf Creek team. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Published 3:00 am Thursday, March 5, 2015 By Jaine Treadwell Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Wolf Creek team had a pitcher that had gotten a couple of fingers shortened working at the sawmill. With his crooked fingers, he could throw the baseball so that it dipped and danced in such a way that a batter could only hit it by chance.“My granddaddy said the ball would be coming in 90 miles an hour and jumping all around and the batters would forget about trying to hit and just get out of the way,” McLendon said.People would come from miles around to see the Wolf Creek team play. They would come by wagonloads. The pasture would be filled with 500 or more who came to see the Wolf Creek team out blast, out run, out gun and out slug, if necessary, the visiting team.The players were all farmers and could only play on Sunday afternoon until their crops were laid by in July. Then, they would play on Saturdays.  The women would cook just like they were preparing for dinner on the ground and, at dinnertime; the visiting team would be invited to join them for a hearty meal.“And, the Wolf Creek team could out eat the visiting team just as mightily as they could out play them,” McLendon said.The days of bush league teams and cow pasture baseball are all but gone. Ax handle bats and string baseballs are things of the past. Creeks and barbed wire fences no longer define the parameters of the outfield nor cow patties the bases. Players spit sunflower seeds instead of tobacco juice and slick uniforms have replaced bib overalls. Baseball’s a brand new game.

Such a team was the Wolf Creek Bush League that played out of rural Pike County.Back in the 1920s, the Wolf Creek team was causing that much clamor.The Wolf Creek team played their home games in a cow pasture near Tarentum. The players had to pass the hat at their games just to get enough money to buy their balls and bats. They had four bats and, if one broke, they had three. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day McLendon remembers that his granddaddy said the players were all as quick as a rabbit, sly as a fox, strong as a mule and as mean as a snake.“My granddaddy said the fielders could gun down a base runner from way across the creek,” McLendon said. “The batters were so good with the bat, they could drill a pitcher right between the eyes with a line drive or a blast of tobacco juice. They could spike a baseman high, low or anywhere he would go.”McLendon said his granddaddy didn’t like to brag but said the Wolf Creek team won nine out of every ten games they played.“He said they wouldn’t have lost those games except the other team would hire a minor league pitcher to come in to pitch against them,” he said. “The Wolf Creek team played to win and they would scream at the other team and holler at them and hit at them and run at them and throw at them and scare their pants off.” The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Sponsored Content Email the author You Might Like Wacky, Wild: TES and Banks students go crazy for reading Students at Banks Primary School show how crazy they are for reading.

Vulfpeck Welcomes Kamasi Washington, Plays “Wedding Set” For Sold-Out Red Rocks Show [Video]

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Bill McAlaine Photo: Bill McAlaine Photo: Bill McAlaine On Friday night, Vulfpeck took to Morrison, Colorado, returning to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre for their headlining debut with support from Kamasi Washington and KNOWER. The venue, which boasts a capacity of just north of 9,500 people, was packed to the brim with people, having sold out earlier in the day. Throughout the show, spirits were high, as fans and folks on stage celebrated Vulfpeck’s triumphant feat.KNOWER, the electronic duo of Louis Cole and Genevieve Artadi, got the show off to a fiery start, setting the tone for the rest of the evening with their energetic live show and bass-heavy and eclectic sound. Somewhat similar to Vulfpeck, the group came into fame by releasing music online and steadily building a cult-like following. Thus, their attention to live performances was apparent, and the band did not disappoint as the venue steadily filled during their opening set.Up next was Kamasi Washington, the Los Angeles-based saxophonist who has largely been heralded as the new face of jazz music. His performance with his truly standout band went deep, offering a vibrant performance and using the show to forward a message of diversity and acceptance of one another. One of the highlights of Kamasi Washington’s set was the rendition of “Truth”, a complex number off Washington’s Harmony Of Difference, which was released last year. Noting that the tune had five different melodies that expertly weave together, Kamasi introduced the song by noting that “Harmony of Difference is a celebration,” later adding “Our diversity is not something to be tolerated, it’s something to be celebrated,” which was met with cheers from the audience.Following the huge close from Kamasi Washington, after a brief break, the members of Vulfpeck slowly took the stage, with each member getting a proper baseball-esque introduction as they ran onto the stage. The band, composed of Jack Stratton, Joe Dart, Theo Katzman, and Woody Goss, certainly did not disappoint, pulling out all the stops for their sold-out headlining Red Rocks debut. As such, frequent Vulfpeck collaborators like Cory Wong, Joey Dosik, and Antwaun Stanley were on hand for the majority of the performance, lending their own virtuosic music abilities to the mix, in addition to special guest sit-ins by Kamasi Washington, Louise Cole, and Charles Jones.After the band’s “Tee Time” introduction, Vulfpeck wasted no time, quickly transitioning to an immaculate rendition of “Fugue State”. Setting a tone for the evening, the group then moved into “Outro” and invited Kamasi Washington to the stage, who stole the show with his fiery saxophone solos. After a huge round of applause following Kamasi’s guest appearance, the band moved into a take on “Cory Wong” featuring, predictably, guitarist Cory Wong, before inviting out their second guest of the evening, drummer Louis Cole, for a huge drum solo during “Daddy, He Got A Tesla”.“Outro” with Kamasi WashingtonOff 2016’s The Beautiful Game, the band next offered up “Animal Spirits”, which housed a raging sax solo, before moving into the soulful and sultry Joey Dosik-led tune, “Running Away”. With the song serving as a quick break before the show kicked into high gear, it was a welcome reprise before Antwaun Stanley emerged to offer his beyond powerful voice and charismatic stage presence to takes on fan favorites “Game Winner”, “1612”, and “Wait For The Moment”. An energized cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman” came next, much to the delight of the crowd, before the group offered up yet another fan favorite tune, “Funky Duck”.Sir Charles Jones, the soul singer and another past Vulfpeck collaborator, made his first appearance of the evening for a take on “Baby I Don’t Know”, one of his collaborative tune off Vulfpeck’s newest album, Mr. Finish Line. From there, bandleader Jack Stratton took centerstage, offering up one of his quirky “TED Talks” that have become a staple of Vulfpeck’s live shows. Hilarious and campy throughout, the talk served also an introduction for “Peck-A-Pella”, the band’s a capella alter ego, who performed their beloved rendition of “Back Pocket”.TED Rocks Speech > “Back Pocket” (Peck-A-Pella)Closing things out with bang, the group offered up three of their most popular songs, “Christmas In LA”, “Beastly”, and “Dean Town”. Vulfpeck is known for live performances featuring audience participation, and “Christmas In LA” saw Theo Katzman hit the front of the stage, leading the entire audience of nearly 10,000 in an extended sing-a-long, adding a delightful twist to the tune. As for the final two numbers of the set, the songs, in part, have become such beloved staples of the band’s catalog due to Joe Dart’s tremendous solos, and both “Beastly” and “Dean Town” gave the bassist time to unleash, proving why he is lauded as one of the best up-and-coming bassists in the music scene right now.“Christmas In LA”[Video: Kayleigh Boester]“Dean Town”[Video: TannerGibas]For their extended encore, Vulfpeck, with Charles Jones, came out for a take on “Birds Of A Feather, We Rock Together”, another new tune off Mr. Finish Line. In a surprising twist, the group then kicked off a “Wedding” set, featuring renditions of popular wedding band songs, including The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, The Four Seasons’ “December 1963”, Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September”, mixed with the band’s own “The Speedwalker”. After this high octane string of feel-good tunes, Vulfpeck closed out their night in full with “It Gets Funkier”.“Wedding Set” Encore[Video: Kayleigh Boester]Setlist: Vulfpeck | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 4/27/2018Set: Tee Time (intro), Fugue State, Outro (with Kamasi Washington), Cory Wong, Daddy He Got A Tesla (with Louis Cole), Animal Spirits, Running Away, Game Winner, 1 For 1 / 1612, Wait For the Moment, Boogie On Reggae Woman, Funky Duck, Baby I Don’t Know (with Charles Jones), Jack’s TED Rocks speech, Back Pocket (Peck-A-Pella), Christmas In LA, Beastly, Dean TownEncore: Birds Of A Feather (with Charles Jones), I Want You Back, The Speedwalker > December 1963 > September, It Gets FunkierPhotos: Vulfpeck | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 4/27/2018 | Credit: Bill McAlainelast_img read more

Gigi to Invent Champagne in Seattle Before Heading to the Great White Way

first_img The new Great White Way headed production is a re-imagined reboot of the 1973 musical, which played 103 performances on Broadway. Starring Karin Wolfe as Gigi and Daniel Massey as Gaston, the production earned a Tony Award for Best Original Score. Gigi features the memorable tunes “Thank Heaven For Little Girls,” “I Remember It Well,” “The Night They Invented Champagne,” “It’s a Bore,” and more. View Comments Broadway-bound Gigi will initially be performed in concert form at Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre May 16-18. As previously reported, the show is scheduled to open at the Kennedy Center in January 2015 and is eyeing a transfer to the Main Stem later next year. A re-imagined new production of the 1973 musical by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Lowe, Gigi has been adapted by playwright and Emmy-nominated screenwriter Heidi Thomas, with Eric D. Shaeffer on board to direct. According to the 5th avenue announcement Josh Bergasse (Smash) is set to choreograph and the Seattle performances will be cast locally. Set during the turn of the 20th century, Gigi tells the story of a free-spirited teenage girl living in Paris who is groomed (in the custom of her family) to serve as a companion to a bored, wealthy playboy until the pair realize they have fallen in love. The musical is based on Colette’s classic novella, the 1951 play by Anita Loos and the 1958 movie musical of the same name. The big screen adaptation of Gigi garnered a then-record-setting nine Oscars, including Best Picture.last_img read more
