U.S. Donald Trump A cast member of the Broadway musical Frozen has refused to apologize for snatching a pro-Trump sign away from an audience member. Timothy R. Hughes, who plays the character Pabbie, noticed the sign which read “Trump 2020” during the bows. Hughes quickly ripped the banner away from the person, who was seemingly seated in the front row, and tossed it to the right of stage. He even uploaded a video of the incident to Instagram, along with an explanation about his actions. Hughes said political signs have no place at a Disney musical. “What does it say about our country and politics when a man at the show tonight felt the need to protest Disney’s Frozen on Broadway with a pro Trump flag?” Hughes said.

ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell's ascension to one of the best starting pitchers in the American League has become, by any measure, increasingly obvious.He goes into his start Sunday against the MLB-best Red Sox ranked second in the AL with a 2.07 ERA and .182 opponents average, third with 15 wins, seventh with 10.4 strikeouts per nine innings and only his missed DL time from making the leaderboards for innings (139) and strikeouts (160).Though Boston's Chris Sale and Cleveland's Trevor Bauer were getting most of the Cy Young love before their recent DL stints, and Cleveland's Corey Kluber and Houston's Justin Verlander are receiving more now, Snell has at least pitched his way into the discussion, if not on to some ballots."I don't see how he hasn't put himself in the conversation,'' Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "Look at where his numbers were at the break; they were as good as anybody in baseball, certainly in the AL. You can pick apart an earned run or some strikeouts here or … [Read more...] about Is Blake Snell having the best pitching season in Rays history?

Updated at 7:08 p.m. on Monday, August 6, 2018. NASHVILLE — Tennessee U.S. Senate Democratic nominee Phil Bredesen and Republican nominee Marsha Blackburn are up online with dueling digital spots as they make their respective cases to voters in the Nov. 6 general election. The spot from Bredesen, a former governor and Nashville mayor, was posted Monday on his website. It features video of favorable statements about him made by Republicans, including incumbent U.S. Sen. Bob Corker and U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, both of Chattanooga. Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Blackburn of Franklin is highlighting her role as a state senator who successfully fought a proposed state income tax proposed in the early 2000s by some Republicans and championed by then-Gov. Don Sundquist. In her 15-second digital ad, Blackburn says, "here in Tennessee I fought my own party to stop a massive, job-killing state income tax. And we stopped it. We won." While the comment was included in Blackburn's 2017 Senate … [Read more...] about New Bredesen ad features Corker, Fleischmann speaking favorably of him; Fleischmann pushes back
From LarryLarry —As for this week's Rushmores, well, here we go: Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague (0) goes up for a basket as Golden State Warriors guard Andre Iguodala (9) defends in the first half of an NBA basketball game, Friday, Feb. 6, 2015, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/John Bazemore) From Ross Who you got the hawks taking at 3? I'm praying they're smart enough to take Doncic if hes still on the board. Ross (and others) — We got a slew of online draft questions during the process last night. This one — which we received Thursday during the day — seems like the best specific one to get into the proceedings. First, we'll cover the Hawks. Atlanta drafted Luka Doncic at No. 3 and promptly dealt him to Dallas, and this will almost assuredly mean that Doncic will be a 10-time all-star. Why the cynicism? Well, Atlanta may be the single worst drafting team in all of sports and here are the Hawks last 15 first-round picks … [Read more...] about 5-at-10: Friday mailbag with Rushmore of best college hoopsters, Lots of draft reaction, Hawks stink at drafting, Octopussy
