Required fields are marked * As of Thursday morning, the City Council had reported no action after a closed session meeting on Tuesday that included discussion on allowing the College Football Playoff (CFP) to use the Rose Bowl Game name for a semi-final championship game to be played in Texas on New Year’s Day.According to the closed session agenda, a discussion on the “price and terms of payments” with City Manager Steve Mermell and Tournament of Roses CEO David Eads was scheduled to take place.The CFP announced on Saturday night that the game between No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Notre Dame had been moved.On Sunday, news outlets reported that the game would still be called the Rose Bowl Game, even though that privilege can only be granted by the City Council. The Council, however, had not yet met to consider the matter.“The College Football Playoff Management Committee and Tournament of Roses have mutually agreed that, given the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Southern California, the CFP semifinal game previously scheduled to be played at the Rose Bowl Stadium will now be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX,” according a statement issued by the CFP.Local residents implored the council to not allow the CFP to use the name Rose Bowl Game for the upcoming game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.“Please do not allow the College Football Playoff game in Texas to use the Rose Bowl name,” wrote Pasadena Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Paul Little in correspondence to the City Council.“The name and the game are Pasadena’s identity to the world. Allowing it to be used for a game in Texas would diminish the name and the value of the event. The Rose Bowl name is part of Pasadena’s brand and should be protected and cherished by the City and the Tournament. You betray Pasadena, its residents and our history to allow the Rose Bowl name to be used for a game in Texas,” wrote Little, a former Pasadena City Councilmember.City officials declined to comment on the issue before the meeting. According to the Ralph M. Brown Act, the state’s open meeting law, the city must publicly report any action taken in closed session. However, reporting may be deferred under certain circumstances, including lawsuit settlements and monetary agreements, usually because legal action is often contingent upon approval and signatures by another party.Online, Texas residents and elected officials, including U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, gloated over the decision to move the game.“Now football is fleeing California,” Cruz posted on Twitter.The CFP moved the semifinal game from the historic stadium to Arlington due to a California state order that bans fans and family members of players from viewing sporting events in person.“Rose Bowl and Rose Bowl Game are the two most valuable names and brands in our city. And both are among the top sports/venue brands in the U.S. The Rose Bowl is also internationally recognized with an enduring halo effect on the image of Pasadena,” wrote Wayne Hunt.“A branding appraisal would likely place a value on these famous brands in the millions of dollars. If we allow a Rose Bowl Game to be played in Texas we essentially say that we don’t value the exclusivity of the Rose Bowl and even the unique qualities of Pasadena,” Hunt continued.“I don’t think we would tolerate our Rose Parade to take place in Dallas, so don’t allow our cherished Rose Bowl brands to be exported and diminished either,” Hunt wrote. ““Yes, move this year’s game, but don’t let them profit from and diminish our beloved and valuable brands by literally exporting the Rose Bowl to Texas.” Business News Government No Action Reported on Special Closed Session Meeting on Rose Bowl Game By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Wednesday, December 23, 2020 | 3:35 pmcenter_img More Cool Stuff EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  34 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

This is not the Peruvian south

first_imgTHE OXFORD REVUE vs THE CAMBRIDGE FOOTLIGHTS Playhouse Tuesday 21 October Only Is comedy the new Peruvian sloth manufacture? No. Is it the new masturbation? Unlikely. The Oxford Revue steer a mostly judicious course between two poles of comic crapness: vacant surrealism and trite ribaldry. As a result they are very rarely crap. As director and co-writer Leander Deeny points out, like the stench of an embarrasing parent slowly going off in the fridge, the spectre of Monty Python remains, for both Revue and Footlights, hard to dispel. And, yes, it’s in evidence here. But The Oxford Revue have some nice, if contrived lines (guy with cold feet to fiancee: “What if we’re too hairy, and we shave, and we get stubbly, and I grow it back, and you don’t, and we stick together like velcro?”). They have some nice ideas (tearful son phones up dad for advice while adrift in the Pacific Ocean). And they have at least one great comic actor (Daniel Harkin, terrific as a useless boxer). Most importantly, they have masses of bacchanalian energy, which when all else fails (as very occasionally in this production, it does), carries them through with aplomb. As a result they are the one thing that really matters: laugh out loud funny. Who cares if the sherpa is a bit gammy in his left leg in cold spells at the end of the month if he gets you to the top of the mountain? Still, the Revue could do with finding some new things to take the piss out of. Embarassing parents, homophobia, hermaphroditism – all wholesome stuff, but easy. And they make it look difficult. Perhaps the best emblem of this production is its (brilliant) prank of writing to the BBC with a set of intentionally crap sketches. The laughter here (like all the best laughter) is somewhat nervous. Look! They’re taking the piss out of student self referentiality! Ha ha ha (wait a minute, what about…?) Because what’s really holding these people back is the feeling that somewhere, at some point, they’ve sat back and self-conciously racked their brains over the need to produce something called comedeeeeee.ARCHIVE: 1st Week MT2003last_img read more

Berahino happy to feel wanted

first_img “You mature quicker, playing a man’s game, you have the senior lads that help you along with it as well. “I would say maybe I learned that the harsh way last season. But I don’t regret any of it, it’s made me who I am now so I just look forward.” Berahino, a committed Christian, turned 21 in August and this month tweeted ‘What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?’. It was something which resonated with him due to his faith and what he has experienced in his short career. “It was something I was watching on TV. I am religious, it was a Christian thing and this question was asked to viewers. I sat down and thought, ‘What a brilliant question’,” he said. “You get caught up in this world, you want to do certain things that really don’t have a value. We do a lot of things, you think in your head it is a massive thing, but really it doesn’t have value. I am not perfect, I will never say I am perfect or the best Christian, but I try. “People out there will look at me and say how can I be a religious person, look at the amount of stuff you did in the past. At the end of the day, you get judged for what you do in the past. “When I look back, sometimes I can’t believe how I have got myself here. I think it is the faith that I’ve kept, always praying to God and asking for forgiveness for what I’ve done.” Last December’s sacking of Steve Clarke affected Berahino and his form dropped under replacement Pepe Mel. He scored just three goals after Boxing Day as the Baggies beat the drop by just three points, finishing 17th. Alan Irvine replaced Mel in June and has won back-to-back games ahead of the Clarets’ visit. Berahino scored a late winner in the 3-2 Capital One Cup victory over Hull on Wednesday and insisted new the head coach has rekindled his belief. “Losing Steve Clarke kind of touched me, I kind of lost myself. Those things happen,” he said. “I have played under four managers now so I am learning each day. “Alan has brought that self-belief back into me, I kind of lost that at the end of last season. And he’s given me freedom to play and express myself which I think is really important. “The more you talk to me the more we will get on and the more you will probably get out of me. I will know what you are looking for and I can show you what I can give.” Saido Berahino has admitted he felt alone at West Brom last season. But the honest striker feels he has banished any demons which threatened his career before it had barely begun. This year he is the Baggies’ three-goal top scorer after returning to training early in the summer to get back on track. It is a far cry from the end of last season where a video of him inhaling laughing gas, a legal high, emerged in April, just weeks after a dressing room bust-up with James Morrison. It was a turbulent end to a season where Berahino announced himself with a hat-trick against Newport County in the League Cup. A goal against Arsenal and the winner at Manchester United in September then catapulted him into the spotlight. And after his roller-coaster breakthrough campaign, which included his England Under-21 debut, Berahino is a changed man. “Because my family are always pushing me, there wasn’t a point last season when I felt, ‘Wow, I’ve hit rock bottom here’. I always knew I could go again,” he said ahead of Sunday’s home game with Burnley in the Barclays Premier League. “But I felt more alone than rock bottom. There was no-one I could go to in the club and get advice from. “Things have changed as last season I don’t think the seniors knew who I was. “Now we’ve got that relationship, they understand me and I understand them.
