Spielberg explains why he rushed to make Streep-Hanks starrer

LOS ANGELES---For a Hollywood movie, especially for one directed by Steven Spielberg, "The Post" was a quickie. It took only nine months from the time Steven read the script to make the film starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks---that's a record. Why did the award-winning filmmaker temporarily stop doing postproduction work on his new movie, "Ready Player One," to make "The Post"? Steven felt that the true story in the '70s of how then President Richard Nixon attempted to gag Washington Post and The New York Times reporters strikes a chord in this Trump era when journalists are standing up to an adversarial presidency. With amazing speed, Steven was able to assemble topnotch tal...Keep on reading: Spielberg explains why he rushed to make Streep-Hanks starrer.....»»

Showdown set: Battle-tested Patriots vs. fresh-faced Jaguars

By Dennis Waszak Jr., Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Watch out, New England. Here comes Sacksonville. Tom Brady and the big game-tested Patriots square off against the sack-happy Jacksonville Jaguars next Sunday in the AFC championship game in Foxborough, Massachusetts — with the winner headed to the Super Bowl. That's nothing new for New England, of course, which has been there three of the past six seasons. For fresh-faced Jacksonville, however, this is all rare territory. The Jaguars are playing in the conference title game for just the third time in franchise history, and first since losing to Tennessee during the 1999 season. Jacksonville is also one of four franchises to never play in the Super Bowl. "I'm sure there will still be tons of people that are going to disapprove or talk negative or hate or do whatever they want," quarterback Blake Bortles said. "But we get to keep playing. We get an opportunity to go play in Foxborough for another week, so I'm just honored to be able to do this and especially with this group of guys." And, it has all come full circle for Tom Coughlin, who was Jacksonville's coach the previous time the franchise got this far in the postseason. He went on to win two Super Bowls with the New York Giants — both against Bill Belichick's Patriots — but is now the Jaguars' executive vice president of football operations. He helped assemble a squad with coach Doug Marrone that has been powered by a tenacious defense that ranked second in the NFL during the regular season in sacks. After a few ho-hum games, Bortles, running back Leonard Fournette and the Jaguars offense showed it isn't too shabby, either, outslugging Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in a stunning 45-42 victory Sunday . "Obviously, with what they have on their side of the ball, it's a good team and we know they've got a good offense," Bortles said. "We knew we had to keep scoring." There's also this neat nugget: Jacksonville's first AFC championship game appearance came during the 1996 season — against New England, which went on to play in the Super Bowl under then-coach Bill Parcells and lost to the Brett Favre-led Green Bay Packers. "It's been an awesome year," Bortles said, "and we want to keep it going." The Patriots have made it to the AFC championship game for seven straight seasons, clinching this trip with a 35-14 drubbing of the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night . New England has advanced to the Super Bowl in three of the past six seasons. "The reality of the NFL is what we did this week will have nothing to do with what happens next week," Brady said. "We're going to have to go repeat it, so you've got to get right back to work, right back to the process of trying to figure out how to break down our opponent. "Everyone's got to feel good physically and mentally and go out there and try to cut it loose one more time in a huge game." The Patriots know how to do that, and they're masters of tuning out distractions. Despite a published report during the week that raised questions about the relationships between Brady, Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft, New England was all business on the field against the Titans. "It's pretty incredible to be a part of that," Brady said. "I think the thing is that we don't really take it for granted around here. I know how hard it is to get to this game. We're very blessed to do it." Meanwhile, Philadelphia awaits the winner of the New Orleans-Minnesota game later Sunday to find out who it will face in the NFC title game. The Eagles used steady play by Nick Foles and a late goal-line stand to beat the Atlanta Falcons 15-10 on Saturday. "We'll be ready for next week," defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said......»»

Teng still has Alaska s best interest despite big game

Unlike the his game against TNT late last year, Jeron Teng finally got his big performance and big win Sunday against the overmatched Kia Picanto in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. However, the rookie out of La Salle knows that team accomplishments matter over anything so he'll take an Alaska win even if he doesn't put up 23 points and nine rebounds as well as outscoring the opposing team by himseld in one whole quarter. "A win is a win, and we’ll take this one. It’s a good start for us this 2018 dahil we’re 2-0 this year. Sana ma-build up kami from there," Jeron said following the Aces' 102-65 demolition of Kia. In the third period, Teng poured 13 of his total points, which was eight more that the Picanto's output as a team. Alaska outscored Kia, 36-5, in the third to turn the game around. "[Coach Alex Compton] just told us to bring out more energy and outhustle Kia. Nung first half medyo so-so yung nilaro namin. He told us to respect the team and play better," he said. "I think we all played good in this game. We picked it up nung second half. We all kew we had to step up nung halftime to get this win and we needed this win for our next game," Teng added. Speaking of the next game, Alaska has a date against Ginebra up next and Jeron says the Aces are ready for the Gin Kings. "I think were ready for the challenge, we’re up to it. Were practicing really really hard and I think we’ll be ready by that game," he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
