Leicester 2 Spurs 1

Erik Lamela created a goal just over a minute into his comeback but it wasn’t to be as we dominated without reward at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night.
after 13 months on the sidelines with a hip injury, Lamela came off the bench on 77 minutes and 80 seconds later, played in Harry Kane to rifle home for 2-1.

That proved the highlight of the night though as we laid siege to the home goal in the second half without finding an equaliser.
Our best chances fell to Christian Eriksen and Fernando Llorente but somehow that second goal proved elusive.
In the end, we paid for conceding two goals in the first half, taken well by Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.

Seahawks 24, 49ers 13

If maybe you were hoping the Seahawks would come out Sunday and do some of the things they haven’t all season — such as start fast

And in finally pulling away from the 49ers in a 24-13 victory on a rainy, windy day, the Seahawks pretty much were what they have been all season.

They looked stagnant on offense early — Wilson throwing an interception into the wind on the game’s first play. They were ahead 7-3 at halftime only because of a Bobby Wagner interception that set up a 16-yard touchdown drive.

“I have never seen an interception like that,’’ marveled fellow linebacker K.J. Wright.

Had he not seen it Sunday, Seattle might well have trailed at halftime against a team that has now lost 24 of 27 games since the start of the 2016 season. “Luckily we’ve got a really good defense that keeps us in the game early so things don’t get too out of control,’’ said receiver Doug Baldwin, noting it’s a pattern that has come to define the 2017 season.

The Seahawks then used one of their most reliable combinations — a Wilson-to-Baldwin pass — to get jump-started offensively. The two connected on a 23-yard pass to convert third-and-nine midway through the third quarter during a quick touchdown drive that re-established control for Seattle.

“That was really the spark in this game,’’ coach Pete Carroll said.

And throughout the game, their defense gave up little, holding the 49ers to just 205 yards until a final 75-yard drive resulted in a touchdown on the final play of the game.

In essence, relying on what has become the winning formula for the 2017 Seahawks, one that doesn’t figure to change now with just five games left.

“We continue to have our struggles in the first half,’’ said Baldwin. “I don’t know what it is. Maybe we have to calm our jitters down and maybe we are overly excited. But once we find our groove obviously we are able to continue and play well.’’ Seattle, in fact, led just 7-6 with 8:23 left in the third quarter when Wilson and Baldwin hooked up on their third-and-nine play that seemed to turn the game for good. Eddie Lacy had been stopped for just a 1-yard run on the previous play, which followed a Wilson incomplete pass. That left the crowd, which looked to be about half of the announced attendance of 70,134, cheering as it rarely had all day.

Baldwin, who had just one catch for 2 yards to that point, found an opening as Wilson scrambled, then reached and dived to control the pass for a first down that seemed to finally indicate to both teams that things would, indeed, unfold as everyone expected.

“That was really the momentum-starter for us,’’ said Wilson, who four plays later hit tight end Nick Vannett for a 17-yard touchdown that put Seattle ahead 14-6 and capped a 71-yard drive after Seattle had gained just 129 yards in the first half.

“Just doing my job,’’ said Baldwin. “I’m just playing. I’m just reacting to what the defense is giving me. So, in the moment, I’m not thinking that ‘Oh, it’s a big catch.’ I’m just thinking we’ve got to continue to move the ball downfield.’’

After the defense forced a three-and-out, another big Baldwin play on third down led to another long touchdown drive.

On a third-and-eight from the San Francisco 20, Wilson underthrew a pass to Baldwin in the end zone. Baldwin reached back over 49ers cornerback Dontae Johnson to draw a pass interference that gave Seattle a first down at the 1. Two plays later, Wilson hit Jimmy Graham for a 1-yard touchdown pass to help make it 21-6 and ended the suspense for good.

“A very savvy play,’’ Carroll said of a move that ultimately sewed up a victory that improved Seattle to 7-4 and kept the Seahawks a game behind Los Angeles in the NFC West. Seattle plays host to the Rams on Dec. 17 and already have a victory over them.

And while there were other contributors — Tanner McEvoy had two well-timed catches for 31 yards and J.D. McKissic provided a nice spark both running and receiving, to name two — it was ultimately a victory in which the Seahawks mostly relied on the same players who have been the face of the franchise for so many years now.

Teenage Heart

Barclay James Harvest

It’s the truth, or so they say
Who holds her hand, holds her heart
She’s old enough to play fast and loose
In a schoolgirl kind of way

But this teenage heart’s driving me insane
The moment that we touch will ease my pain
Who holds her hand, holds her heart
So they say

Finding words, finding the nerve
But never finding her alone
My heart’s like sand she holds in her hands
One look, one smile, and I’d be there

But this teenage heart’s driving me insane
The moment that we touch will ease my pain
Who holds her hand, holds her heart
So they say

Say what she said, “Is she going out?
Or is it me she’ll see tonight?
Tell me the truth, I’m man enough
Well, in a schoolboy kind of way

But this teenage heart’s driving me insane
The moment that we touch will ease my pain
Who holds her hand, holds her heart
So they say

High Wire

I have seen and I have heard
The story’s all the same
Running here and running there
Your love is like a game
Everytime I look for you
You’re walking in the clouds
When I look into your eyes
I see you looking down

You’ve got something that I want
You’ve got something that I need
If there’s a chance that I can see
I will follow where you lead me

High wire, walking on a high wire
You’re walkin’ on a high wire
You’re walkin’ tall
But you know you’re gonna fall someday

I have seen and I have heard
That you’ve been fooling me
You could try to make me feel
The way I used to be
Is there any reason why
You leave me on the shore?
When I look into your eyes
It makes me beg for more

You’ve got something that I want
You’ve got something that I need
If there’s a chance that I can see
I will follow where you lead me

High wire, walking on a high wire
You’re walkin’ on a high wire
You’re walkin’ tall
But you know you’re gonna fall from your…

Spurs 1 WBA 1

We needed a second half equaliser from Harry Kane to salvage a point against a dogged West Bromwich Albion side at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
On what was the 2,000th home league game in our history, our England striker converted from close range in the 74th minute to cancel out Salomon Rondon’s early goal for the Baggies and, despite plenty of possession, it was another of those games in which we just couldn’t create enough opportunities.

wbmc4wbmc3
Just four minutes were on the clock when the visitors opened the scoring and it was a poor goal to concede. Former Spur Jake Livermore robbed Dele Alli of possession just inside our half and released Rondon, who managed to fend off Davinson Sanchez and rolled a shot which crept into the far corner.
We huffed and puffed throughout the rest of the first half without really causing the visitors too many problems, Ben Foster saving well from Heung-Min Son before the South Korean striker tried a shot which looped over Foster and landed on the roof of the net.

wbmc2wbmc1
The second period saw more tempo to our football and, after Matt Phillips had curled a shot just wide for Albion, our dominance was finally rewarded when Dele’s cross was diverted home by Kane, his 15th of the season and 114th of his Spurs career.
He almost put us in front moments later, but could only head over the top from Kieran Trippier’s cross and we kept piling on the pressure looking for that late winner. It didn’t come and instead, it was Albion with two glorious chances to snatch the points deep in stoppage time.

flirting with disaster - cinema quad movie poster (2).jpg

Flirting with Disaster

Mel Coplin and his wife, Nancy, live in New York, near Mel’s neurotic, Jewish, adoptive parents, Ed and Pearl Coplin. Mel and Nancy have just had their first child, and Mel won’t decide on a name for their son until he can discover the identity of his biological parents. After an adoption agency employee locates his biological mother’s name in a database, Mel decides to meet her personally.

Tina, the sexy but highly incompetent adoption agency employee, decides to accompany Mel, Nancy, and the newborn on a trip to San Diego to meet Mel’s biological mother. The trip, of course, does not go as planned, and ends up becoming a tour of the United States.

First, Mel is introduced to Valerie, a blond Scandinavian woman with Confederate roots whose twin daughters are at least six inches taller than Mel. They quickly realize that Valerie is not Mel’s biological mother, and Tina scrambles to get the correct information from the agency database. Meanwhile, Nancy becomes jealous as Tina and Mel begin to flirt.

Next, the group heads to Battle Creek, Michigan with the hope of meeting the man whose name appears as the person who delivered infant Mel to the adoption agency. The man, Fritz Boudreau, turns out to be a trucker with a violent streak. However, when he discovers that Mel might be his son, he becomes instantly friendly and lets Mel drive his semi-trailer truck, which Mel immediately crashes into a Post Office building.

This leads to a run-in with two ATF agents, Tony and Paul, who are gay and in a relationship with each other. It is discovered that Tony and Nancy went to high school together. Charges are dismissed, and Fritz Boudreau tells Mel that he is not Mel’s father, but only handled Mel’s adoption because Mel’s biological parents were indisposed. Tina locates the current address of Mel’s biological parents, which turns out to be in rural New Mexico. Tony and Paul surprise everyone by deciding to tag along on the trip.

While Mel and Tina become close, Nancy finds herself flirting with Tony, who returns the compliment, causing friction. The trip through rural New Mexico is fraught with more problems. At last the whole crowd descends on the front porch of Mel’s true biological parents, Richard and Mary Schlichting. They are asked to stay the night. While Richard and Mary are more than welcoming, Mel’s biological brother Lonnie is overly rude and jealous. It is during dinner that Mel discovers that Richard and Mary had to let Mel be adopted because they were in jail for making and distributing LSD in the late 1960s. Not only that, but Richard and Mary continue to manufacture LSD, as becomes apparent when Lonnie, in an attempt to dose Mel with acid at dinner, accidentally doses Paul, the ATF agent.

Flirting with Disaster 2

In his drugged state Paul tries to arrest Richard and Mary but Lonnie knocks him out with a frying pan. They attempt to escape and decide to take Mel’s car, hiding their supply of acid in the trunk. Mel’s adoptive parents arrive but then change their minds and decide to leave, taking the wrong car. When they change their minds again and make a blind U-turn, the two families crash. Mel’s adoptive parents are arrested while his biological parents escape to Mexico.

Not realizing what has happened Mel recounts the stories from dinner to Nancy and they agree to name the baby Garcia. The next day Paul explains the situation and is able to get Mel’s parents released, and they are happy and reassured to hear Mel call them his parents. A montage of their relationships continues over the credits. They all still have their troubles but Mel and Nancy are happy together.
