Beach Boy Mike Love Shares Whimsical Video For “Do It Again” With John Stamos And Mark McGrath

first_imgRecently, The Beach Boys’ Mike Love recently joined forces Full House star John Stamos and Extra host/former Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath for an updated rendition of the surf-rock icons’ 1968 single “Do It Again.” On Wednesday, the trio premiered the official video for their self-described “reincarnation” of the track, directed by Stamos.While Love’s relationship with the rest of his original band, particularly songwriting collaborator Brian Wilson, is publicly contentious, the relationship between these three performers is all love. The clip is a thoroughly satisfying dose of fun-in-the-sun nostalgia, with shots of Love’s younger days singing with the Beach Boys interspersed with a whimsical Love-McGrath-Stamos karaoke montage. Take a few minutes to watch the video (via OfficialMikeLove), and we promise your day will be just a little more light-hearted if you do.“The whole song’s about getting together with old friends and sharing good times and talking about the old times,” Love told Billboard. “The fact that here we are decades later, recreating it with old friends, having a great time – it doesn’t get much more organic and perfect and fantastic than that.” Love also commented on the old-school footage used: “Sometimes it’s embarrassing to see myself with a beard as long as ZZ Top’s or looking like Duck Dynasty or jumping around with my shirt off and rockin’, but, hey, it was the ’60s and the ’70s and it was rock and roll and there’s a whole lot of history there.”As fans of Full House know, the connection between Love and Stamos goes way back, at least as far as the Beach Boys’ guest roles on the show in the 90’s. Love, Stamos, and McGrath performed their “reinvigorated” version of the 60’s tune for a 4th of July TV special in Washington, D.C. for PBS earlier this month.:[h/t – Rolling Stone]last_img read more

Dodgers add the free-agent outfielder of their choice — A.J. Pollock

first_img“I think a big focus for us this offseason was ‘How do you achieve more consistency?’ … We think A.J. fits in really well with that, not just in 2019 but as we look ahead.”Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated there will be fewer of the “line change” platoon lineups with the addition of Pollock as an “every-day” presence in the lineup.“I don’t think you go out and sign a player like that to even bring in the word ‘platoon,’” Roberts said. “I think he’s going to play, he’s going to play every day. But the idea of giving him days off, getting ahead of things with the rigors of a long season — I think that’s something that I’m going to have a conversation with him.” PreviousLos Angeles Dodger pitcher Joe Kelly speaks to fans during Dodger Stadium Fanfest at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, January 26, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Pollock donned a Dodgers cap and jersey for the first time Saturday, posing for photos as his signing with the team became official.And he also confirmed what many had suspected — he is not Bryce Harper.“Honestly I’m just concentrating on being the best version of myself I can,” Pollock said when asked about the unsigned free-agent outfielder aspirationally linked to the Dodgers all winter, a more expensive purchase the team has declined to make.“He’s a great player. That’s not a question for me. I’m just going to come in here and just do my part to help this team win a ton of ballgames.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Pollock has had a difficult time staying in the lineup over the past five seasons. He has played more than 113 games just once in that time due to a series of injuries.“I feel like most of my injuries — a lot of them were impact injuries, kind of freak stuff,” Pollock said. “I feel like I do a really good job of keeping my body in shape. I just have to keep trusting the process. I know some things haven’t gone my way as far as injuries, but absolutely, a lot of my injuries weren’t really overuse, just some freak stuff. I’m not even thinking about injuries. I’m ready to go.”Friedman said the Dodgers analyzed Pollock’s injuries — a broken thumb in 2018 while diving for a fly ball, a groin injury in 2017, a fractured elbow in 2016 on a diving slide at home plate and a broken hand in 2014 when hit by a pitch — and came to the same conclusion as Pollock.“Obviously he’s missed some time over the last few years and as we dug into it the question is ‘Is it predictive as you look forward?’” Friedman said. “As he said, most of them have been impact-type injuries. He’s had one soft-tissue injury. Then you get into how well a guy takes care of himself. How clean does he live, eat, and those things that factor into player health.“As we dug into it we felt good that he does everything he possibly can to stay on the field.”Pollock said as his free-agent winter played out he told his agent to do everything he could to keep the Dodgers in play.“I’m not going to lie, we were looking at the Dodgers the whole time and just thinking ‘That’s just a great fit. We love the team. We know them really well and there are a lot of familiar faces,’” Pollock said. “Honestly, when things got close, I talked to my agent over here, Brian Peters, and just said ‘Don’t lose the Dodgers I want to play there.’ And it worked out.”It worked out with a contract that includes plate-appearances markers that could allow Pollock to opt out after his third season or give him a player option that could extend the deal for five years and $60 million. It was a creative approach that allowed the Dodgers to keep their projected 2019 payroll under the competitive-balance tax threshold for a second consecutive season — something that Friedman called “beneficial” but not necessarily a primary aim.“I think right now we’re solving for being the best team we can be, both short term and long term and trying to balance that with the players we have right now with how the landscape looks going forward,” he said, saying he was “not sure” if the Dodgers would stay under the tax threshold as the rest of the offseason plays out.“Obviously we’ve got a very mature, full payroll. Next year we have a lot more flexibility in that respect. I think it’s always balancing that and not putting yourself in position where you potentially fall off a cliff. I think that’s one thing we’ve done pretty well — maintain a high level. And that’s something that’s easier said than done. There’s a lot of history in the last 10 years of some large revenue teams taking big dips down and trying to build back up. We’re trying to do everything we can do to avoid that.”center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire The Dodgers expect his part to involve anchoring an outfield that can be “elite” defensively and making their lineup less vulnerable to left-handed pitching than it often was over the past three seasons.“As we looked ahead to 2019 and beyond, we’ve got a number of left-handed hitters that are under control for a while and have some left-handed hitters coming,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Saturday. “We didn’t have as much from the right side and as we looked at 2019 specifically, we felt we were going to be a very dynamic offensive team against right-handed pitching. Against left-handed pitching we weren’t going to be quite as good.Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco last_img read more

Tiger Woods score, results, highlights from Round 2 letdown at PGA Championship

first_imgMaybe in retirement he can join a club curling team. pic.twitter.com/F7wOpcFh6I— Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) August 7, 2020Shot 4: Bogey.Hole 2: Par 4, 446 yards (par)Shot 1:Tiger’s drive is a little right of the fairway into the second cut of rough.Shot 2: Tiger, approaching from about 170 yards out, lands just short of the green. He’s looking at an up-and-down for par.Shot 3: Excellent chip and Tiger’s looking at a 2-foot par attempt.Shot 4: Tap-in par.Hole 1: Par 4, 390 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger hits the left fairway with a slight stinger, 301 yards from the hole. Good start after his issues there in Round 1.Shot 2: Tiger wedges a beautiful approach and lands within 10 feet of a birdie attempt.Shots 3, 4: The 7-foot birdie attempt stays left all the way — a missed opportunity there. Tiger settles for a walk-in par to start the day. “The putting green is faster than the golf course,” Tiger said of his putting woes on Friday. “It’s been like that all week. Again, but some of the pins were up on crests so you’re putting into the grain early and then you go past the hole, and it’s down grain.”The struggle was evident not only on Tiger’s scorecard, but also on his face and in his body language. For a while on the back nine, he even looked in danger of missing the weekend. He managed to overcome whatever mental blocks hindered him Friday — which is more than he can say about his last PGA Championship outing.Sporting News tracked Tiger’s frustrating second round at the 2020 PGA Championship, providing stats and highlights.

Nice little stinger that steers clear of the bunkers.Shot 2: Nice chip gets Tiger within 10 feet for birdie attempt, but that has been anything but certain today.Shot 3: Another miss, but no harm done. Tiger sits himself up for a tap-in par that gets him well within the cut.Shot 4: Par. That’ll do it for Tiger today, and he’s likely glad to put it behind him. On to Round 3.Hole 17: Par 3, 171 yardsShot 1: Tiger goes with the 7-iron and lands the ball flat about 35 feet from the hole.Shot 2: Decent putt stops a couple feet short of the hole and doesn’t backtrack on the slope — probably worried he might overshoot it.Shot 3: And he sinks it for par. Anything better than a double bogey gets Tiger into weekend play.16: Par 4, 336 yards (birdie)Shot 1: Tiger hits the right end of the fairway, which puts him in decent position to the hole.Shot 2: A not-bad wedge gets Tiger on the green where it rolls slightly back toward the hole. Looking at a 6- or 7-footer from here.Shot 3: Birdie — and a much-needed one at that. Tiger could have used a couple more of those today.Hole 15: Par 4, 401 yards (bogey)Shot 1: He smokes it. Great drive off the tee on 15, lands 154 yards from the hole.Shot 2: He overshoots the green by a mile, lands in the rough on the far side. That’ll be a tough up-and-down from there; He’s got a steep bank to work against and not a lot of green.Shot 3: Sure enough, Tiger sends the chip flying by. He’ll have a 30-, 35-foot attempt just for par.Shot 4: Just missed it right. Tough break. Bogey attempt upcoming.Shot 5: Bogey. That puts Tiger at 1-over for the tournament and right on the cut line.Hole 14: Par 4, 470 yards (par)Shot 1: It’s way, way right, beyond the rough. He’ll need to regroup here — he still has five holes to keep within the cut.Shot 2: Tiger’s back on the fairway but short and left of the green. He’ll need an up-and-down for par.Shot 3: Tiger chips it within about 3 feet for standard par attempt.Shot 4: Par it is. Tiger has four more holes to work with.Hole 13: Par 4, 472 yards (bogey)Shot 1: Tiger’s drive curves right, barely clears the bunker and stays on the right of the fairway.Shot 2: He can’t hit a putt longer than 4 feet but Tiger sure can’t help but hit those bunkers. Same on 13, where it bounces and jumps in short and left.Shot 3: Missed it right. Just awful short game today.Shot 4: Tap-in bogey.Hole 12: Par 4, 494 yards (par)Shot 1: A little right, into the rough. Nothing Tiger can’t come back from.Shot 2: Tiger’s approach flirts with the green but settles in the rough a little right of the hole. Tough position to maneuver out of there.Shot 3: Nice little chip misses left but gives Tiger a manageable 4-foot par attempt — but he hasn’t made one from beyond 3 feet today.Shot 4: And he has it — longest putt of the day, 4 feet, for par.Hole 11: Par 3, 200 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger hits the front of the green but can’t quite clear the lip. He’ll have 30-35 feet on the birdie attempt.Shot 2: Beautiful putt but it just misses the lip. Two-putt par coming up but that was a great look.Shot 3: An exceptionally disappointing par.Hole 10: Par 5, 562 yards (birdie)Shot 1: Nice drive to start the back nine. Tiger can regroup with a much-needed birdie on the par-5 10th.Shot 2: Tiger hits the front of the green but doesn’t get it far enough to stay — it rolls back a few feet to the fringe.Shot 3: Lag putt lands 7 feet from the hole. Not ideal considering his short game woes this round.Shot 4: Birdie! A much-needed hole that distances Tiger a little from the cut line.Hole 9: Par 4, 515 yards (bogey)Shot 1: Tiger didn’t like that one from the outset. Drive goes wide right into the bunker.Shot 2: Bunker. To. Bunker. He hits it off the left of the green.Shot 3: Put too much spin on it. He’s looking at 14 feet for par.Shot 4: Missed it left. He’ll have a 2-over 37 for the front nine. He has 17 putts thus far that cover 12 feet. Yeesh.Shot 5: Bogey.Hole 8: Par 3, 251 yards (par)Shot 1: Good drive lands center of the green where it rolls downhill 27 feet from the hole. Two-putt par best bet here.Shot 2: Decent look at birdie but it falls short about a foot and didn’t break quite enough. Not the worst here on the tough Hole 8, though.Shot 3: Par it is.Hole 7: Par 4, 340 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger’s in his third bunker this round, short and left of the green.Shot 2: He’s barely on the green after a hard first bounce but is looking at a 12-footer for birdie, slightly downhill from the pin.Shots 3, 4: Tiger off the mark again, this time left of the hole. Gotta settle for the two-putt par.Hole 6: Par 4, 472 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger’s on the fairway, so at least there’s no issue there. He’s 194 yards from the hole on the right side of the fairway.Shot 2: On the green, but he left plenty of space — roughly 30 feet — for birdie.Shot 3: Was going wide the whole way. Tiger can’t buy a putt today, though he didn’t do himself any favors with his approach. He’ll end up with a 2-foot par attempt.Shot 4: And it’s in for par.Hole 5: Par 4, 436 yards (par)Shot 1: Tiger hits a nice stinger down the left side of the fairway. Onward.Shot 2: Another good approach lands Tiger within 10 feet of birdie. He doesn’t need this per se, but will definitely want to get back to even for the round.Shots 3, 4: And now it’s just right of the pin — you can see the disappointment on his face after that one. Another tap-in par through his fifth hole.Hole 4: Par 5, 607 yards (par)Shot 1: Aggressive drive from Tiger clears the trees at the bend and lands on the left side of the fairway, 286 yards from the hole. Looking to get that shot back here on the par-5.Shot 2: And Tiger’s in the bunker again, short and right of the green. Can’t be happy with that but birdie is still in play.Shot 3: Tiger’s on the green, about 6 feet downhill from the pin. Very makeable attempt coming up.Shots 4, 5: It lips out. He really needed that early but will have to settle for the walk-in par.Hole 3: Par 3, 185 yards (bogey)Shot 1: Tiger’s in the bunker right of the green. Those winds seem to be affecting shots today. He’ll need an up-and-down for par here.Shot 2: Tiger’s on the green, but the ball rolls to about 8 feet for par.Shot 3: It’s left all the way again. Missing on the short game today. The good news for Tiger Woods fans is he has made the cut at the 2020 PGA Championship. The bad news is that his play left a lot to be desired in a disappointing Round 2, especially his short game.The greens at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco vexed Tiger throughout the day; he not only missed makeable birdie putts early, but also missed several par attempts during the round. He nabbed only two birdies Friday, both on the back nine, and bogeyed four times for a 2-over 72. He finished the round tied for 45th — well within the cut line, though in a position not worth writing home about.last_img read more
