After spending the night playing with Bob Weir one night earlier, it seems that Phish was still in a great mood for the final night of their two-night stand at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, TN. The band delivered a solid first set, though it had some up and down moments, but their second set was one that will surely be remembered. The impressive feat saw the band bring out a total of six songs, stretching out each of them with a fluidity so prized among the band’s loyal fans.The set started with a cover of TV On The Radio’s “Golden Age,” leading into a blissful jam that ultimately dropped into fan favorite, “Tweezer.” The funk train kept on going with “No Men In No Man’s Land,” before Phish brought out a dark and intoxicating rendition of the Trey Anastasio original, “Plasma.” Played for only the fourth time ever, let’s keep our fingers crossed that “Plasma” becomes a more-frequent second set choice. The darkness became light as the band played a feel-good “Harry Hood,” and closed out the set with the upbeat “Suzy Greenberg.” With no breaks in the music, this was some straight up Phish, pure and simple.Fortunately, thanks to Chris From Jam Buzz, full audio of the show is now streaming on YouTube for us to enjoy. Sit back and enjoy!You can catch some videos below, as well.Harry HoodWalls Of The Cave > Tweezer Reprise (Encore)[Videos courtesy Go See Live Music]Phish has the night off tonight, October 20th, before starting a two night run this weekend in Alpharetta, GA.

While 40 of the world’s top 50 players are contesting the WGC-HSBC Champions event in Shanghai, world number 340 Harrington is one of nine former major champions in the field at Jackson Country Club. Harrington, who reached a career-high third in the world six months after winning his third major title in the 2008 US PGA Championship, will partner fellow major winners Lucas Glover and David Toms in the opening two rounds of the 4million US dollars event. Glover has also plummeted down the rankings since winning the US Open in 2009 and is now a lowly 556th, while 2001 US PGA champion Toms is ranked 173rd. John Daly, YE Yang, Trevor Immelman, Ben Curtis, Chad Campbell and David Duval are the other major winners in the field, which also features rising Australian star Cameron Smith. Smith finished tied fifth on his PGA Tour debut in the CIMB Classic in Malaysia last week to secure his place, the 21-year-old becoming the first player since Alistair Presnell (2010 WGC-Cadillac Championship) to finish in the top 10 in his first PGA Tour start. American Woody Austin won the event when it was last held in 2013 – albeit at a different venue – but since turning 50 in January has been splitting his time between the PGA Tour and Champions Tour, finishing 12th in their Tour Championship on Sunday. ” It’s been a busy schedule here at the end,” Austin told a pre-tournament press conference. “I’ve played more than I wanted to. This will be five weeks in a row, which is way too much. “But when I started playing the Champions Tour during the FedEx play-offs, I didn’t know that I would make it to the Schwab Cup, so the fact that I had a shot to get in the top 30, I went ahead and took that opportunity and played in San Antonio a couple of weeks ago instead of The McGladrey Classic, and played really well. “So it got me into the Tour Championship. So I played again last week, which was going to be a week off. So it’s been a bit of a long stretch. This will be it for the year.” Ireland’s Padraig Harrington will continue his bid to stop his slide down the world rankings in the Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi this week.

August 23, 2020 Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest from the Indianapolis 500, which was delayed from Memorial Day weekend because of COVID-19:___5 p.m. Marco Andretti has led the field to the green flag for the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500, the familiar field of 33 roaring down the canyon-like front stretch of empty seats at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.The warm-ups found Andretti following the IndyCar two-seater driven by his grandfather and 1969 winner Mario Andretti with his father and team owner Michael Andretti in the second seat. It was the first time that the three generations of the family were on the track at the Brickyard at the same time.The call to start the engines was delivered by Roger Penske, whose family purchased the speedway along with the IndyCar Series. He promised that fans would be “back home again in Indiana” in 2021.___1 p.m. The story of the second quarter of the Indianapolis 500 has been miscues on pit road.Alexander Rossi was challenging race leader Scott Dixon when he came out of Turn 4 too hot and missed the entry to pit lane. Sage Karam lost a lot of time when he locked up his tires and missed his stall on pit road. Rookie driver Rinus VeeKay also lost several seconds when he stalled leaving his pit, then he was penalized for hitting a team member.The most intriguing part of the race so far has been pit strategy. Several of the Team Penske drivers are on a completely different strategy from the leaders, including the defending winner Simon Pagenaud. They are hoping that strategy may help overcome what appears to be a gap between Honda and their own Chevrolet engines.___3 p.m. The Latest: Rossi crashes out of Indy 500 after pit problems It’s been the Scott Dixon-Alexander Rossi show at the Indianapolis 500, though plenty of crashes behind them have provided an exciting subplot to “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”The latest involved Spanish youngster Alex Palou, who got out of the groove and slapped the wall in the short chute between Turns 1 and 2. Palou was running in the top 10 when he crashed.The timing of the crash creates some fuel intrigue. Teams can make it about 30 laps on each green-flag run before needing to pit. There were just under 80 laps to go when Palou brought out the caution flag.___4 p.m. James Davison has brought out the first caution flag of the Indianapolis 500 when he made contact with the wall in the opening laps and his right front tire turned into a ball of fire.Davison was able to exit the car without any problem. His car was still smoking as it was lifted onto a flatbed truck.Scott Dixon went immediately to the front when the green flag dropped, passing pole sitter Marco Andretti heading into Turn 1. Ryan Hunter-Reay also was on the move in the opening laps as Honda flexed the muscle it has shown all month.___1:30 p.m. The countdown is on to the start of the Indy 500, which was delayed from its traditional date in May because of the coronavirus pandemic and will be run without fans for the first time in its 104 editions.New track owner Roger Penske, whose team has four cars in the field, and IndyCar executives have tried to create an entertaining prerace show for broadcaster NBC. But the build up to “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” is still somewhat eerie without the 250,000-plus fans who typically show up inside the Brickyard.Driver introductions took place with the voice of the public address announcer echoing off the empty stands. There also will be no military parade or balloon release, two staples of race day. But there will be Jim Cornelison singing “Back Home Again in Indiana” and the Air Force’s famed Thunderbirds performing a flyover.___More AP auto racing: https://apnews.com/apf-AutoRacing and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Alexander Rossi will want to forget all about this year’s Indianapolis 500.The winner of the 100th edition of the race spent the early stages dueling with Scott Dixon for the lead. But he was forced to play catch-up when he was told to pit late and missed pit lane, then was penalized and sent to the back of the field later when he bumped another car on the release from his stall following another stop.Rossi was trying to aggressively work back to the front when he got loose and hit the outside wall. That brought out a caution with 53 laps remaining, putting pit strategy front and center for the rest of the field.___4:30 p.m. Scott Dixon has dominated the first half of the Indianapolis 500, much as the five-time IndyCar champion and 2008 race winner has dominated the rest of the season for Chip Ganassi Racing.Dalton Kellett brought out a caution before the midway point when he hit the wall hard. That erased about a lead of about 10 seconds that Dixon had built over the course of a long green-flag run. But after the field cycled through pit stops, Dixon found himself at the sharp end of the field once again.When the race went to green, Conor Daly and Oliver Askew were involved in a heavy wreck deep in the field. Askew was visibly shaken as he climbed out of the car, sitting on the tub for several minutes to catch his breath.___3:30 p.m. Marcus Ericsson got into some turbulent air while running near the front of the Indy 500 and slapped the outer wall in Turn 2, bringing out the second caution flag on the hot, sunny day in Indianapolis.Scott Dixon had led the first 28 laps before taking the field down pit road for the first set of stops. He was still in first after the stop with Takuma Sato, Alexander Rossi and Marco Andretti close behind.The weather could play a factor in the race. It is much warmer than it typically is during the race in May.___1:40 p.m. Associated Press read more
Freshman setter Raquel Lázaro tallied a total of 73 sets in the Trojans’ matches against Oregon and Oregon State. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)After sweeping Oregon State (25-20, 25-18, 25-21) on Thursday, the women’s volleyball team found itself on the other end on Sunday, suffering its first home loss at the hands of No. 20 Oregon (26-24, 25-22, 25-20) at Galen Center. The Trojans fall to 4-2 in conference play. Head coach Brent Crouch said after Sunday’s game that the players’ execution needed improvement.“There weren’t a lot of bright points between [Sunday] and Thursday’s games,” Crouch said. “Our hitting numbers were spectacular against [Oregon State]. [Sunday] was a different story. We did not execute well — we doubled their hitting errors, doubled their serving errors. That’s the game, that’s the match.” Before this weekend, Crouch was looking to improve their serving, but it was not smooth sailing in either game. The Trojans were still able to shut out the Beavers on Thursday night, but they struggled with serving consistently throughout the three sets as they finished with 10 service errors and five aces. Oregon State also struggled with serving, finishing with seven service errors and one ace. Freshman setter Raquel Lázaro was a bright spot on Thursday, finishing with 35 assists and clinching her eighth double-double of the season with 10 digs. In conference play, Lázaro is averaging 11.11 assists per set and has helped anchor USC’s offense throughout the season. “In terms of setting, she’s been incredibly consistent,” Crouch said. “It’s really pulled us out of some tight spots in the past.” On Sunday, Lázaro provided the same consistency, but even with her skill and the intense hollering from fans, the team was unsuccessful in rattling Oregon’s offense. Despite keeping the score close throughout the match, the Trojans had recurring difficulties with their service game, also recording 10 service errors. They had trouble blocking the Ducks’ outside hitters, who seemed to punish USC’s weak passing at every opportunity. These mishaps forced two early USC timeouts in the first quarter. With two illegal back row hits also hindering the Trojans, the Ducks used their momentum to end the matchup in three sets. Crouch was uncharacteristically brief after Sunday’s match, offering a terse comment. “Not sure why we didn’t execute today, but we didn’t,” he said. Despite enduring their first loss at Galen Center this season, the Women of Troy were still able stay relatively sharp individually. Senior libero Reni Meyer-Whalley led the Trojans in digs during both the first and second frames, garnering a total of 11 for the match. Senior libero Victoria Garrick was also a major defensive asset, leading all players with 19 kills in the match-deciding set. With two more home games next weekend after a road-heavy schedule so far, the team will rest before returning to Galen Center Friday against Arizona State.“Hopefully, this [loss] lights a fire under us,” Crouch said. “I thought we could have beaten Oregon in three if we just didn’t have all those errors. This will definitely help create the focus we want in practice this week … It’s only going to get tougher as the Pac-12 goes on.” read more
