The ferocious fantasy about simmering, tamped-down resentment finally bursting free was banned before 9 p.m. on MTV. 25. American Life (2003) Damn you, Dixie Chicks. If your anti-Bush remarks hadnt inspired patriotic (air quotes) yahoos to start stomping CDs, Madonna might never have pulled her original music video for American Life. (Which was maybe the most un-Madonna like decision shes ever made.) On its own, the sparse, jarring song sounds more like an extended prologue to its American values-challenging album. But its heard anew when accompanied by its intended mini-movie, which compares the blindly obedient pro-war groupthink and rah-rah rallying cries that preceded the invasion of Iraq to applauding at a fashion show. And Madonnas silly rap about yoga, Pilates, and lattes is revealed as a darkly comedic take on privileged First World Problems. 24. Die Another Day (2002) Madonna tends to polarize people, and Die Another Day might best represent that curious talent. When it was announced that Madonna would record a James Bond film theme, a groan went up yet the song became a Top 10 hit around the world. It was nominated for a Golden Globe and a Golden Raspberry. And it frequently ranks on critical lists of best-ever Bond themes and lists of worst-ever Bond themes. But this, after all, is the key to Madonnas success: she demands a reaction.
Blue Dons dominant against Knights
“We worked our players pretty hard this week and I think they knew the importance of the game and getting a win against Central, especially our senior group,” said Taylor. “A lot of times it is the last time you play a team that you remember and we wanted to make good memories for our seniors.” Wheeling Central went three-and-out with the next possession forcing Henry to punt from his own 22. Nero gathered in the pigskin at his own 37 and wasn’t stopped until he got caught from behind at the Maroon Knight 5. On the first play from scrimmage, Comis called a quarterback draw and pranced untouched into the end zone. Green missed for the only time in the game, but the Blue Dons held a 13-0 lead. The Maroon Knights were threatening with drive to the Madonna 28 when senior running back, C. J. Burch, let the ball get loose and it was Grant Retton that got on it at the Madonna 31 for the opportunistic Blue Dons. “They (Madonna) played outstanding,” said veteran Maroon Knight coach, Mike Young. “They jumped on us early. Our four turnovers in the first half definitely increased their effort. Hats off to them and their coaches. They definitely deserved to win this game tonight.” Comis ran for 4 yards and Nero wheeled through the Maroon Knight defense for 53 yards to the Wheeling Central 12.
Gulliver comes back, routs Chaminade-Madonna
After trailing 7-0, Watson quickly found Dontay Mayfield on a 72-yard fade, and the Raiders never looked back. We put our guys through adversity during the week so they can respond during a game, Gulliver coach Earl Sims said. They did a good job. Were proud of them. In the second quarter, the Lions (0-2) imploded with five consecutive penalties. After Chaminades early score, the Raiders (3-0) scored 17 unanswered points to take a 17-7 halftime lead. Mitchel Davis had 105 total yards, including 97 rushing yards and two rushing scores. Watson, who also found Dionte Mullins on a 70-yard pitch-and-catch, was 9 of 20 with 211 passing yards and no interceptions. I was telling the kids, when adversity strikes, its easy to point fingers, Lions coach Marcello Rodriguez said. We all have to look at each other and in the mirror and find ways to improve. The Raiders second-half effort matched their first, with another 17-point output and a streak of 34 unanswered points. Braynon Edward and Cornelius Floyd each had interceptions in the victory. We had some breakdowns in our secondary on assignments, Rodriguez said. It caused them to have a couple of fade routes, and they capitalized off of it. Chaminade-Madonnas lone score came when Jakari Hunt blocked the Raiders first punt, and Javhari Bourdeah scored on a 33-yard return just a minute into the game. Dillard built a commanding 26-8 second-quarter lead over Stephenville (Texas) in the Lone Star Sports High School Football Classic in Texas on Saturday before it all came apart. 1379219980 LaSalle 26, Florida Christian 10 Manny Readon had two touchdown runs to propel LaSalle to a road victory over Florida Christian on Friday.
