first_imgA cab driver was caught on tape praising John Elway as the best quarterback of all time, while the NFL legend — unbeknownst to him — was sitting in his backseat. “He’s a great quarterback,” explained Sam Snow, in the now-viral Facebook video, posted last week by Glenn Stearns.“A great quarterback,” he said.Snow — who was wearing a Pittsburgh Steelers jacket — had been driving around Washington D.C. with a group of people during the inauguration when they suddenly pulled out their cell phones and started asking him some football-related questions.“I asked our cab driver Mr. Sam Snow to name his top three quarterbacks of all time,” Stearns said. “This is what happens when he finally realizes he is driving his #1 choice!” The encounter was shared by countless people on Monday, and had already racked up nearly 300,000 views as of 11:30 p.m.In the clip, Snow can be heard explaining why Elway is his “Number 1,” and Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger are “Numbers 2 and 3” — all while Elway unsuspectingly snickers in the back seat.Attempting to have some fun with the cabbie, a woman sitting next to the Denver Broncos executive vice president — presumably his wife — tells Snow, “I think [Elway] is hot.”“This girl slept with him,” Stearns says.“Hey, with the money he got…guys would go to bed with him,” Snow adds, sparking several laughs. “Would you go to bed with John Elway?” a woman asks.“No, no, no, I don’t roll like that,” Snow says.After chatting for several minutes, the group finally lets the Steelers fan in on the secret.“Oh, come on man — are you serious?! It’s John Elway!” Snow says. “Man, I gotta take a picture…Seriously! That’s John Elway! I’ll be damned.”last_img read more

first_imgLucas Moura, Spurs hatrick hero.London, United Kingdom | AFP | Tottenham proved they can cope without Harry Kane and retook third place in the Premier League as Lucas Moura’s hat-trick inspired a 4-0 demolition of Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday.Despite the absence of injured stars Kane and Dele Alli, Mauricio Pochettino’s much-changed side made it three victories from their first three games at the impressive Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.Pochettino’s understudies filled in nicely as Kenya midfielder Victor Wanyama rolled in the opener before Brazilian forward Lucas took centre-stage with an eye-catching treble.Tottenham have settled well in their new £1 billion north London home and already relegated Huddersfield provided the ideal warm-up for Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg at Manchester City.Bidding to qualify for next season’s Champions League via a top-four finish, Tottenham are one point clear of fourth-placed Chelsea, who face leaders Liverpool on Sunday.Bottom of the table Huddersfield have lost 19 of their last 21 league matches as their two-season stay in the top-flight grinds to a dispiriting conclusion.It was a reassuring afternoon for Tottenham, whose 1-0 quarter-final first leg win against City on Tuesday came at a heavy cost.Kane is likely to miss the rest of the season after suffering yet another ankle ligament injury, this time in a tackle on City’s Fabian Delph, while Alli sustained a fractured hand that left him unable to face Huddersfield.Adding to Pochettino’s problems, England midfielder Harry Winks was ruled out of Saturday’s game with a groin injury.But for all the panic about Kane’s injury potentially ruining Tottenham’s hopes of a successful end to the season, they have won all five of their league games without the England striker this season.Much sterner tests than Huddersfield lie ahead, including successive Champions League and Premier League matches at City next week, so Pochettino made seven changes, leaving Son Heung-min, Danny Rose, Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier on the bench.It was a gamble to rest South Korea forward Son, who had scored two of Tottenham’s three goals at the new stadium, including the winner against City.All eyes were on Fernando Llorente and Lucas to see if they could fill the gap left by Kane and Son up front. – Strength in depth –Huddersfield were so limited in all areas, that Tottenham’s make-shift line-up were able to play their way into rhythm.Showing their strength in depth, Tottenham deservedly took the lead thanks to two of their understudies in the 24th minute.Ben Davies passed towards Llorente and the Spaniard used his strength to hold off Jon Gorenc Stankovic, allowing the ball to run to Wanyama,Bursting into the space behind the Huddersfield defence, Wanyama cleverly rounded goalkeeper Ben Hamer before slotting into the empty net for his first goal since February 2018.Three minutes later, Tottenham struck again. Moussa Sissoko dinked a pass into Lucas’s path and the Brazilian took a touch before drilling a fierce shot across Hamer into the far corner.Stankovic should have done better than poke wide from Juninho Bacuna’s corner as the defender wasted a golden opportunity to give Huddersfield hope.The often maligned Llorente has quietly had a hand in 15 goals in 18 starts for Tottenham, scoring 11 and setting up four.He almost got another with a volley that cannoned back off the crossbar.Lucas, a candidate to start against City, stole the show in the second half, controlling Eriksen’s pass to smash home the third goal in the 87th minute.Lucas wasn’t content with that as he ran through to drive another fine finish past Hamer for the first hat-trick at Tottenham’s new stadium.The former Paris Saint Germain star was cheered off as he celebrated his man of the match performance with a kickabout with his 1-year-old son on the pitch after the final whistle.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_img“I used to attend the fireworks every year with a few ofmy girlfriends when I was a kid,” said Alexandra Hough,Red Bank. Holidays and celebrations have had a different look in 2020. Graduations have been relegated to virtual ceremonies, birthdays to drive-by parades and Memorial Day to small backyard gatherings with socially distanced guests. The traditional spectacular fireworks over the Navesink River will once again be on display Friday, July 3. But to safeguard supporters, it will be celebrated without the accompanying family event. So it’s no surprise that the annual 4th of July Family Fireworks on the Navesink River will be a little different this year, too. “Riverview Medical Center has invested an extraordinary amount of funds to acquire ventilators, disinfecting machines, temporary tenting and personal protective equipment (PPE) to fight COVID-19 and to prepare for any potential resurgences making community support more important than ever.” “This community has been through a lot this year,” said Domenic DiPiero, former chairman of the Riverview Medical Center Foundation and current Hackensack Meridian Health trustee. He and wife Hilary DiPiero, Riverview Medical Center Foundation trustee, have been hosting the family fireworks event at their home on the Navesink, which featured food, rides and games and raised critical funds for the medical center. Last year, the event raised more than $250,000. “Fireworks on the Navesink River are a time-honored tradition and while we are not able to gather in person, we are thrilled to be able to put them on for the community as a way to express our gratitude for the heroes among us, while raising money for a great cause,” said Robert C. Garrett, chief executive officer, Hackensack Meridian Health. The expense of the display was generously underwritten by the Riverview Medical Center Foundation Board of Trustees.  EDUARDO PINZON Fireworks will once again light up the skies over the Navesink River July 3. Hackensack Meridian Riverview Medical Center will present the pyrotechnic display dedicated to the community’s frontline workers, including health care and other essential workers. This year the fireworks, scheduled to go off between 9:15 and 9:30 p.m., will be dedicated to the community’s frontline workers, including health care heroes and other essential personnel. “The hard work of the staff and health care professionals at Riverview Medical Center has always been important to and appreciated by the community,” he said. “So it seems a fitting tribute for this year’s display be dedicated to them. And we’re happy everyone can enjoy the fireworks.” The fireworks will be launched from a barge in front of the DiPiero’s dock. Fireworks Display is Dedicated to Frontline Heroes The fireworks are traditionally visible along the Navesink River in the section nearest the Oceanic Bridge. Hackensack Meridian Health encourages all individuals gathering to watch fireworks at any location throughout New Jersey to practice safe social distancing and masking. All donations made will support the ongoing efforts at Riverview Medical Center to care for patients during this crisis and beyond. Gifts are 100 percent tax deductible and can be made at HackensackMeridianHealth.org/RMCFireworks, by calling 201-317-5397 or emailing michelle.casserly@hackensackmeridian.org. “We’d usually attend some barbecue beforehand and make our way onto the bridge to get a good view. I remember when we first learned they were being discontinued how upset we were about it. It’s nice to hear that they’ll be back this year. Even better is that they’re being held for a good cause.” The article originally appeared in the June 25 – July 1, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
