Watch the Mormon Boys ‘Head on Up to South Park’

first_img View Comments from $69.00 Hello, Colorado! Ever wonder what would happen if the boys of The Book of Mormon visited South Park? Well, it crossed the mind of one very talented fan, who took the opening number of the hit musical from Robert Lopez, Trey Parker and Matt Stone and placed it in the world of Parker and Stone’s Comedy Central series, complete with cameos from Cartman, Stan, Kyle, Kenny and more. The animation is entirely fan made; props, Simon Chong! The Mormon movie may still be years down the road, but this is one direction we wouldn’t mind seeing the adaptation of the tuner go in. Take a look at the video below to get your Mormon and South Park fix simultaneously. Related Shows The Book of Mormonlast_img read more

World Cup preview: Uruguay vs Portugal

first_imgEuro 2016 winners Portugal take on 2010 World Cup fourth-placed side Uruguay in the last 16 of the tournament on Saturday.A late Iran penalty saw Portugal qualify for the knockout stages, having snatched a late draw with Spain thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick and beating Morocco by a slim margin.Coach Fernando Santos will have no issue upsetting the odds after Portugal’s slow start, having coached them to European Championships glory two years ago despite winning only one game in 90 minutes.Ahead of Saturday’s game, he knows Ronaldo and his fellow forward players will have to be in top form to upset a Uruguay side who are yet to concede a goal in this World Cup, and one who found their scoring boots in a 3-0 win over Russia to top their group last week.”They are a typical South American side,” said Santos.”It’s not just in this World Cup that they have not been conceding goals. It has been like that for the whole of 2018. Oscar Tabarez is the longest-serving international manager. That means he has a very strong relationship with his players.” One of Uruguay’s biggest concerns will be that of Ronaldo, who has four goals in the tournament so far, and could have had another had he not missed a second-half penalty against Iran.Tabarez, who is in his 14th year as Uruguay manager, albeit across two spells, is understandably planning that his side will have to work as a team to contain the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.”Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best strikers in the world,” Tabarez said. “He has a great potential obviously and in planning the match, especially focusing on the opponent and considering the level that every player has … what Ronaldo has on top of the qualities is that he’s the leader of that team.”That is an additional factor. There is not a single player that can contain him there. Not just [Diego] Godin. We will have to work collectively in order to try and contain him or in order to try and limit the effect he can have.”Team newsClubless William Carvalho could miss the game for Portugal, having been absent from training in the build-up with a minor injury, but Gelson Martins and Raphael Guerreiro are fit to start. Uruguay defender Jose Gimenez, who scored their first goal of the tournament, should also be ready to return after sitting out their final group game with Russia.Opta stats  This will be the third encounter between Uruguay and Portugal and their first at the World Cup. They haven’t faced each other since July 1972 when they drew 1-1 at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracanã stadium. Portugal are so far unbeaten in their two previous meetings (W1 D1).Penalty shoot-outs excluded, Portugal have lost only one of their last 17 games at major tournaments (W8 D8), a 4-0 defeat against Germany at the 2014 World Cup. However, they have lost their last three games in the World Cup knockout stages (1 goal scored, 5 conceded).Since the format of the World Cup changed in 1986 to include a round of 16, Uruguay have been eliminated on three of the four occasions they’ve reached that stage, losing in 1986, 1990 and 2014, but progressing in 2010 against South Korea.Uruguay will be looking to win their opening four games at a World Cup tournament for only the second time after 1930 when they won the first ever World Cup.Uruguay are yet to concede a single goal at the 2018 World Cup, facing just six shots on target in three games – the last South American team not to concede in their first four matches of a World Cup tournament were Brazil in 1986.All five of Uruguay’s goals at the 2018 World Cup have been scored from set-pieces (3 from corners, 1 from direct free-kick and 1 from indirect free-kick). Meanwhile, three of Portugal’s last four goals have come from outside the box.Luis Suarez has scored seven World Cup goals for Uruguay, second only to Oscar Miguez (8) – Suarez scored a brace against South Korea in his only previous World Cup appearance in the round of 16 back in 2010.Cristiano Ronaldo has so far failed to score a single goal for Portugal in the knockout stages of the World Cup: 424 minutes, 0 goals. However, he did score a hat-trick against Spain in his previous game at Sochi’s Fisht Stadium.If he plays, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo (37) will equal Bastian Schweinsteiger (38) as the player with the most appearances at World Cups + European Championships.This is Fernando Santos’ fourth major tournament in a row as manager. He’s reached the knockout stages on each previous occasion: Euro 2012 quarter-finals & World Cup 2014 round of 16 with Greece; Euro 2016 winners and at the very least World Cup 2018 round of 16 with Portugal.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Cristiano Ronaldo did not attend last night’s Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris. Coming in third, the one footballer separating him with the winner Lionel Messi is Virgil van Dijk, who’s cocky remarks towards the Juventus talisman has cut him alot of slack from Ronaldo’s fans. However, the one person who has basically called upon a war on the Liverpool FC defender is Ronaldo’s own sister, Katia Aveiro.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Instagram(@katiaaveirooficial)/GettyAs reporters asked him about Ronaldo’s whereabouts from the event, the Dutch defender said with a light poke at the Portuguese: “Why? Was he a candidate?”Now this has fired up Katia, who has used the power of social media to form a befitting reply to the 2018-19 UEFA champions League winner.Advertisement Katia, who is a singer by profession, wrote on her official Instagram @katiaaveirooficial on van Dijk’s remark on her beloved brother, reminding the Anfield star about Ronaldo’s monumental career achievements.The 43 year old wrote:Advertisement “Now, dear Virgil, where you are going, Cristiano Ronaldo has gone and has come a thousand times. ““You see, my dear Virgil, that Cristiano Ronaldo was a tri-champion in the country where you have been playing for years and you still haven’t got your hand on the trophy.” Ronaldo won three Premier League titles under Sir Alex before departing for the Spanish capital in 2009, six years before van Dijk set foot on England.“Cristiano Ronaldo was even the best player and best scorer in the country where you play Virgil. By the way, he was even younger than you.”“Then, dear Virgil, Cristiano Ronaldo went to other places and became the greatest player in the history of a club, Real Madrid. Tell you something Virgil? Maybe so, because this club, with this Cristiano guy, even beat you in the Champions League final.”She mentioned the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League final, when Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 3-1 at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev.

Two River Towns See Spike In Burglaries

first_imgA RECENT SPATE of break-ins and burglaries has some residents wondering if such crimes are on the rise in the two rivers.One woman was recently arrested in connection with a string of car break-ins that occurred in three local towns. And ta Rumson man was charged with entering a home in Fair Haven in broad daylight, where he was discovered by the resident.And just about a year ago, the home of rocker Jon Bon Jovi was burglarized.Little Silver Police Chief Daniel Shaffery said his community had seen a total of three structure burglaries for all of 2011. So far this year, however, 2012 Little Silver has had six, with most of those occurring in March.“I know there’s been burglaries in other towns. They’re seeing what I’m seeing,” Shaffery said.That appears to be the case for neighboring Rumson.“It’s a very noticeable spike,” observed Rumson Police Chief Richard Tobias.Rumson has experienced an increase in home burglaries. “We have been seeing a lot more. Even daytime burglaries,” he said. There has also been a rise in car break-ins and actual car thefts.In Shrewsbury, Fair Haven and Red Bank, home burglaries are no more frequent than in the past, officials say.But ten vehicles in Shrewsbury were broken into and contents stolen, according to Det. Sgt, Robert Turner.Red Bank Capt. Darren McConnell said the borough experiences about 40 burglaries a year and that number has remained pretty constant over the years.The bulk of the break-ins in Rumson, have been vehicles and stolen cars, with most of the vehicles left unlocked, said Mayor John Ekdahl.Usually the culprits are looking for whatever they can grab: GPS units, money or valuables, like computers and cell phones, Ekdahl said. Most such burglaries are done by locals, he said.As for vehicle thefts, a surprising number of them happened because the owners left the keys in the cars. The thieves seemed to be targeting high-end imports, particularly Range Rovers. The perpetrators are often professionals who operate statewide,Ekdahl said police have told him.“The thing about burglaries,” McConnell observed, “a lot of the times, when we do see a spike, it’s where we have one person committing serial burglary.”For these relatively small communities and rather small number of incidents, “a one-man crime wave” with break-ins, over a short period could skew the statistics, he said.According to Fair Haven’s Shaffery, residential burglars generally seem to be looking for jewelry.That was Rumson’s Tobias’ take on it as well, with Tobias adding the thieves steal prescription drugs if available.“The price of gold is at an all time high,” Shaffery said. “And those ‘we buy gold’ shops are popping up everywhere.”Why an increase in this type of crime? “It’s really hard to speculate why,” Shaffery answered.“Honestly, I think, and I hate saying this, but I just think it’s a sign of the times,” said Det. Sgt. Jessie Dykstra of the Fair Haven department. “People that normally wouldn’t be criminals and doing this stuff, it’s turning them to it.”“The economy has a lot to do with it,” Tobias said. “The other factor is drugs. A lot of it is feeding those types of habits.”Rumson police and officials have taken steps to educate the public and be proactive. Tobias said the town has suspended issuing home alarm summons, to encourage residents to keep them activated. Officials have issued reverse 9-1-1 messages and offered burglary prevention tips in the borough newsletter, Ekdahl said.“Call if you see anything suspicious, immediately,” Tobias recommended. “Don’t wait until the next day. Just call.”last_img read more

Cats dig down to win one for Coach D, capture West Kootenay Hoop Crown

first_imgJohnny Johnson and Oliver Cougur combined for 26 points to lead the Mount Sentinel Wildcats to an emotional 42-38 victory over the L.V. Rogers Bombers the final of the West Kootenay High School Junior Boy’s Basketball Championships Friday at the South Slocan-based school gymnasium.The win was the first time that most people can remember that a junior boy’s team from Mount Sentinel has defeated its district rivals to win the West Kootenay crown.“The team was carrying a heavy heart and feeling a lot of pressure to perform to the best of their ability in front of the school community in order to deliver on a promise to win this game for Coach D,” Mount Sentinel principal turned coach Glen Campbell said after the victory.Campbell along with Ken Wiens skippered the team after coach Blair D’Andrea died suddenly.A Celebration of life was held for D’Andrea at Mount Sentinel Thursday and Friday, after the WK tournament, at the LVR Hangar.“The difficulty for any team in this situation is being able to keep your mind focused on the task at hand as opposed to the outcome and the constant reminders of their beloved Coach,” Campbell added. The pressure was evident on the faces of the Wildcats early in the game as the visiting Bombers built up an early 23-7 lead in the second quarter.However, Mount Sentinel began chipping away at the margin and, once the hosts gained the momentum, there was nothing that was going to stop this juggernaut.“Filling in for Coach D was friend and colleague Ken Wiens who did a great job at keeping the guys settled down and focused on the moment so that a comeback was possible,” Campbell explained.“It finally materialized with about two minutes to go in the game before Mt. Sentinel took the lead for the first time and held on for a four point margin of victory.”Johnson topped all scorers with 16 points while Oliver Cougur added 10.Replying for the Bombers was Avery Kusher with 10 and S. Wang with 11.“In my 25 years of coaching experience in high school sports this will go down as one of my most rewarding days because the selfless gift that coaches give of their time felt like the team was able to pay that back a little in memory and tribute to Coach D and his Family,” said Campbell, who spoke on behalf of coach Blair D’Andrea during Friday’s Celebration of Life at the Hangar.“We all needed a feel good moment given the difficulty of dealing with his sudden loss to us all.”last_img read more
