UVa. men’s soccer rolls past George Mason, 3-0
Augusta Free Press - about 3 years
The Virginia men’s soccer team controlled possession throughout as it rolled to a 3-0 victory over George Mason Tuesday evening at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers (2-3) handed the Patriots (4-1-1) their first defeat of the season while snapping a two-game losing skid. “I think it was a good performance for us against a solid George Mason team,” Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said. “I think Mason is a playoff team. To be honest, we have been playing this level of soccer throughout the year. I think tonight we took some chances, we finished our chances and we were pretty resolute in defending. I think our perseverance and belief in ourselves showed through tonight.” Virginia received goals from each of their starting forwards, Ryan Zinkhan (Jr., Fredericksburg, Va.) and Darius Madison (So., Philadelphia, Pa.), while Brian James (So., Sunrise, Fla.) came off the bench and scored UVa’s second goal. Madison tacked on an assist on Zinkhan’s early goal. The Cavaliers dominated po ...

Skulls, Scores, Swains and Swells - Only SF Opera Tells
Huffington Post - about 3 years
They ate chocolate skulls at the opening of the San Francisco Opera.  There. Now that we have confirmed that the opera opening is a ritualized tribal gathering, we can let you in on its secrets: the grandiloquent greetings, the frothy frocks, the swaggering swains, the delectable delights. And the magnificent main event of Mephistophelean music. And let you know that good prevailed over evil. Guests were welcomed to a green-carpeted City Hall adorned by celebrity party personage Colin Cowie. This was Cowie's first turn as decormeister for this particular party, and he made sure to summon a spectacle. Following the theme of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil," the rotunda of City Hall was bathed in emerald light, ringed with trellises and topiaries and adorned with all manner of flora and feathers. In the North Light Court, all-too-lifelike garden statues held their pose and human butterflies flitted amongst the air kisses and champagne bubbles. Cocktails and dinner were design ...

David Finkle: First Nighter: Tina Howe, Alan Zweibel Take 59E59 Theatre's "Summer Shorts" One-Act Cake
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The old saw about saving the best for last is honored during Summer Shorts 2013 at 59E59. The Series A post-intermission, entry is Tina Howe's goofy "Breaking the Spell" about a princess who isn't Sleeping Beauty but who's nevertheless been sleeping for 100 years. The Series B post-intermission entry is Alan Zweibel's touching "Pine Cone Moment" about two widowed seniors who share new-found love through their computers. The loopy Howe piece, totally unexpected in light of her delicately intense previous work, has the King (Michael Countryman) of an unspecified fairy tale land concerned that if he finds no one is his kingdom (or elsewhere) to awaken sleeping non-beauty daughter Christabel (Crystal Finn) by the end of the final week, a witch's curse will go into effect and the realm's entire population will die. With the help of his Poor Wretched Fool (Evan Shinners), also known as PWF, he's watched thousands of would-be saviors troop through his snoozing daughter's cha ...

WATCH: Ed Burns & Mike McGlone Share A Beer In 'Fitzgerald Family Christmas'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Edward Burns' 11th film as a writer-director, "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas," is also a reunion for the Long Island native. For the first time in 16 years, Burns and actor Michael McGlone share the screen, playing combative brothers just as they did in Burns' first two efforts, "The Brothers McMullen" and "She's The One." Available via on demand services starting on Nov. 21 -- and due in theaters on Dec. 7 -- "The Fitzgerald Family Christmas" focuses on an Irish-American family on Long Island, dealing with the return of its estranged patriarch during the holiday season. Burns and McGlone star opposite an array of character actors -- Kerry Bishe, Heather Burns, Caitlin Fitzgerald, Marsha Dietlein, Noah Emmerich, Brian James D'Arcy, Daniella Pineda, Ed Lauter -- as well as Connie Britton (the "Nashville" star has worked with Burns twice previously, in "The Brothers McMullen" and "Looking for Kitty"). Burns has called the film his "most personal work." The Burns-McGlone ...

Garrett Goodman: How Local Media Earn Extra Through Events

Local and regional media houses are using their events strategies to earn extra revenue and build their brands. Is this alternative profit generator worth closer consideration from struggling news outlets? Here are some things you might not know about editorial events: The Economist has a global operation devoted to organizing conferences that pulled in £10 million last year. The Chicago Tribune will produce more than 100 events this year, with up to four happening in a week. Swedish regional newspaper Norran was able to double sponsorship revenue from one client through events. Philadelphia startup Technically Media generated 40 percent of its revenue from events this year, up from only 12 percent last year.

Ones To Watch - Funeral Suits
Clash - over 4 years
These four Dubliners aren’t lacking in passion: “It’s hard for ordinary people to understand that this is our fucking life. It’s not whowe are, it’s whatwe are,” says multi-instrumentalist Brian James. “If we do get a bad review or even if someone says something a little bit negative I personally just fucking flip out,” he continues. Thank God this is a Ones To Watch piece then. They formed four years ago, using a disused office block as a studio. There the band crafted their sound, fusing distorted guitars and throbbing synths together in a powerful eardrum assault. After recording an EP Brian emailed esteemed producer Stephen Street, who has previously worked with The Smiths, Blur, and The Cranberries. “I just went on his ‘fan email’ section [of his website] and then a year-and-a-half later we’re walking out with an album,” he explains. And what an album ‘Lily Of The Valley’ is. Each member is proficient with many instruments so there are few limitations. ‘Colour Fade ...

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Road Dogg
1969
Born on May 20, 1969.
Born on May 20, 1969.
1986
James, under the ring name Brian Armstrong, made his professional wrestling debut on December 1, 1986, where he defeated Kevin Sullivan in a match for NWA Southeast Championship Wrestling.
1987
James served in the United States Marine Corps from 1987 to 1993 and fought in Operation Desert Storm in 1991, where he was a platoon Sergeant in command of thirty-three Marines.
Following this, James put his wrestling career on hold in order to enlist in the United States Marine Corps in 1987 before wrestling another match in 1991 after serving a tour of duty, where he wrestled and lost to Terrance Taylor on July 7, 1991 during the final night of World Championship Wrestling's The Great American Bash house show tour.
1992
James made his professional wrestling debut in 1992, where he competed in Smoky Mountain Wrestling under a mask as The Dark Secret.
After completing another tour of duty, James made his debut for Smoky Mountain Wrestling on November 20, 1992 under a mask as The Dark Secret, where he lost to Tracy Smothers.
As The Dark Secret, James was relegated to jobbing, as he would lose continuously in both singles and tag team matches throughout the rest of 1992 and into 1993.
Following another tour of duty, James returned to SMW five months later on July 2, where he lost to Bobby Blaze. On July 19, James, now using his Brian Armstrong ring name, defeated Killer Kyle in a dark match. Following this, James would alternate between the Brian Armstrong and The Dark Secret ring names, where he would find success in singles and tag team matches under the former and continue to job under the latter. In addition to SMW, James would resume wrestling for World Championship Wrestling under his Brian Armstrong ring name, as he made his return to the promotion on the November 30 episode of Saturday Night in a losing effort to Steve Austin.
1994
James also made occasional appearances for World Championship Wrestling as Brian Armstrong before signing with the World Wrestling Federation towards the end of 1994.
He was billed as The Roadie, an assistant to "Double J" Jeff Jarrett, a would-be country singer. He wrestled on several pay-per-views and television shows, but most of his first WWF tenure was spent accompanying Jarrett and interfering in his matches.
Beginning in 1994, James would begin to wrestle more frequently for WCW, including a championship match against promotion's World Television Champion Lord Steven Regal which he lost.
Following a tag team match where he, as The Dark Secret, and Killer Kyle lost to The Rock 'n' Roll Express (Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson) on April 4, James left SMW and began competing solely for WCW as Brian Armstrong. However, he would find little success, as his only victories were in tag team dark matches where he teamed with his brother Brad while he, along with his brothers, were relegated to being jobbers on television, with the most notable example being a rematch with Lord Steven Regal for the World Television Championship on the August 10 episode of Saturday Night. James wrestled his final match for WCW on the December 17 episode of WorldWide, as he and his brothers Brad and Scott lost a six-man tag team match to The Three Faces of Fear (Kevin Sullivan, The Butcher, and Avalanche).
After defeating Barry Hardy in a dark match on the August 16, 1994 episode of WWF Wrestling Challenge, James signed with the World Wrestling Federation towards the end of 1994.
He was billed as The Roadie, an assistant to "Double J" Jeff Jarrett, a would-be country singer. He wrestled on several pay-per-views and television shows, but most of his first WWF tenure was spent accompanying Jarrett and interfering in his matches.
1995
In early 1995, Jarrett released the song "With My Baby Tonight", which Jarrett claimed he had sung himself.
The planned angle was to reveal that it was The Roadie, not Jarrett, who had really performed the vocals on this song, sparking a feud between the two wrestlers.
Before this revelation could take place, Jarrett and James suddenly left the WWF following the second In Your House pay-per-view on July 23, 1995.
James then joined the United States Wrestling Association as Jesse James Armstrong, where he won its Heavyweight, Television, and World Tag Team Championships before being forced to leave the promotion as a result of losing to Jarrett.

Before this revelation could take place, James and Jarrett suddenly left the WWF following the second In Your House pay-per-view on July 23, 1995.
After leaving the WWF, James joined the United States Wrestling Association under the ring name Jesse James Armstrong alongside Jarrett, where he won its Heavyweight, Television, and World Tag Team Championships before losing a Loser Leaves Town Match to Jarrett.
1996
James returned to the WWF in 1996 as Jesse James, "The Real Double J", and revealed himself to be the true singer of "With My Baby Tonight".
He languished as a mid-card singles wrestler until he formed a tag team with Billy Gunn. A change in creative direction in the WWF in late 1997 led Gunn, who had formerly been stuck under the tutelage of The Honky Tonk Man in the unpopular gimmick of "Rockabilly", to dye his hair back to its original blond color and assume the name "Badd Ass" Billy Gunn, while James became "The Road Dogg" Jesse James. The appearance and mannerisms of the team became more and more controversial and antisocial, with the team ultimately becoming known as the New Age Outlaws. The Outlaws feuded with the Road Warriors and the short-lived tag team of Cactus Jack and Chainsaw Charlie before joining D-Generation X the night after WrestleMania XIV.
James, without Jarrett, returned to the WWF in 1996 under the ring name Jesse James, where he revealed himself as "The Real Double J" and the true singer of "With My Baby Tonight".
He languished as an undercard singles wrestler until beginning a feud with The Honky Tonk Man. After denying Honky Tonk Man's offer at becoming his manager by destroying his guitar, James also began feuding with Honky Tonk Man's protégé Rockabilly. After trading wins against each other on television and pay-per-view, James, now referring to himself as "The Road Dogg" Jesse James (or simply The Road Dogg) suggested to Rockabilly that they form a tag team in order to end their unsuccessful runs as singles competitors.
1997
A change in creative direction in the WWF in late 1997 led Rockabilly to accept James' offer after subsequently attacking Honky Tonk Man with his own guitar to cement their alliance.
Soon after, Rockabilly reverted to his Billy Gunn ring name and adopted the nickname "Badd Ass", while Road Dogg began to grow out and braid his hair. In addition to these aesthetic changes, their mannerisms became consistently more controversial and antisocial, with the team ultimately becoming known as the New Age Outlaws following their victory over The Legion of Doom for their first Tag Team Championship. The Outlaws would continue to feud with the Legion of Doom and later the short-lived tag team of Cactus Jack and Chainsaw Charlie before joining D-Generation X the night after WrestleMania XIV.
1998
The Outlaws amassed five Tag Team Championship reigns and managed to become singles champions while still together, with James and Gunn each winning the Hardcore Championship once in 1998 and 1999, respectively, while James would also go on to win the Intercontinental Championship in March 1999.

2000
The team came to an end when Gunn was legitimately injured in early 2000 and thrown out of DX due to losing his temper to explain the absence needed for his recovery.
James then teamed with fellow DX member X-Pac throughout the summer of 2000 but failed to regain his former popularity or championship success.
The team eventually split, and DX fell apart.

James then teamed with fellow DX member X-Pac throughout the summer of 2000, but failed to regain any championship success.
The team eventually split, with Road Dogg and X-Pac subsequently feuding with each other before the entirety of DX fell apart. Road Dogg then formed a tag team with newcomer K-Kwik, and competed in his last televised match on December 18.
2001
James is also a one time world champion after becoming the first-ever WWA World Heavyweight Champion in 2001.
James is the son of retired professional wrestler Bob Armstrong, and one of the Armstrong brothers.
James then formed a tag team with newcomer K-Kwik before leaving the company in early 2001.
He was then indefinitely suspended, and later released from his contract on January 2001, due to personal problems.
On March 26, 2001, James arrived at the final WCW Monday Nitro taping in Panama City, Florida in order to negotiate a return to World Championship Wrestling, only to find out that the promotion had been purchased by the WWF, thus ruling out both companies as employment options.
2002
After making appearances on the independent circuit, most prominently with the short-lived World Wrestling All-Stars (WWA) promotion, James debuted for the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling promotion on September 18, 2002 wrestling as B.G. James, as the popular Road Dogg gimmick was owned by WWE.
He was initially a heel and one of the founding members of Vince Russo's Sports Entertainment Xtreme faction.

He was initially a heel and one of the founding members of Vince Russo's Sports Entertainment Xtreme faction.
2003
In July 2003, James formed the stable known as the 3Live Kru with Hispanic wrestler Konnan and the African American wrestler Ron Killings.
James was presented as a white trash redneck. The stable was popular from the outset and was notable because they sang their own entrance music as they approached the ring. The 3Live Kru turned out to be a successful gimmick as Killings held the NWA World Heavyweight Championship for a second time and all three members enjoyed Tag Title reigns.
In 2003, James formed the stable known as the 3Live Kru alongside Konnan and Ron Killings.
The stable was popular from the outset and, as a nod to James' and Killings' brief tag team in the World Wrestling Federation, they sang their own entrance music as they approached the ring. In addition to popularity, the Kru found championship success as well, as Killings won his second and final NWA World Heavyweight Championship as a member while all three men held the NWA World Tag Team Championship twice under the Freebird Rule.
2005
Tension arose when James' former partner Billy Gunn joined TNA as "The New Age Outlaw" (later shortened to "The Outlaw") in February 2005.
The Outlaw repeatedly courted James, seeking to split the Kru and recreate the New Age Outlaws. When The Outlaw began feuding with the Kru, James repeatedly found his loyalties divided, unwilling to fight either his former or current tag team partners. For a time, James stopped appearing with the Kru but did not align himself with The Outlaw, who had by then changed his name to "Kip James" as a "tribute" to James' father. At Sacrifice, he reasserted his allegiance with 3LK as the special guest referee in a match between the other members of 3LK and the team of Kip James and Monty Brown. Kip tried to warm up to 3LK again in the lead-up to Bound for Glory by saving James several times from Team Canada. At Bound for Glory, he offered his protective services to them against Team Canada to neutralize Scott D'Amore. When they lost, Kip came down to the ring, appearing ready to hit Konnan with a steel chair since he originally vetoed Kip's offer. Kip instead saved Konnan from Team Canada, thus proving his original intentions.

Kip instead saved Konnan from Team Canada, thus proving his original intentions.
2006
On the November 2, 2006 edition of Impact!, Kip and James announced that they were going to quit TNA.
While attempting to speak about it, their microphones were cut off. When the show returned, the announcers speculated that they may have been frustrated due to the influx of new talent entering TNA. It was later reported that the segment was a worked shoot that Vince Russo had written in order to renew interest upon their eventual return. On the November 16 airing of Impact!, The James Gang announced that they would now be known as Voodoo Kin Mafia (VKM) (a pun on the name Vincent Kennedy McMahon). They spent their airtime bashing McMahon and both members of D-Generation X, using their real names: Paul Levesque and Michael Hickenbottom. After calling Triple H "Triple Hollywood" and Shawn Michaels "Shawn Kiss-My-Bottom", VKM claimed they were declaring war on DX and Vincent Kennedy McMahon. On the November 23 airing of Impact!, they drove around searching for their targets, but they ended up arriving at a Target store.
At the end of the episode, VKM argued, and Kip pointed straight ahead to the WWE World Headquarters, which prompted James to respond, "We're back!" In December 2006, as acknowledged by TNA's website, VKM accepted The Hardys' open challenge to a match at December to Dismember.
WWE never acknowledged their acceptance, however. Over the following weeks, VKM aired several more videos bashing DX and Vince McMahon. They also made a $1,000,000 challenge to DX as announced on the TNA website. They declared "victory" at Final Resolution, after receiving no answer from WWE.

2007
In early 2007, however, James said in a shoot interview along with his tag team partner Kip that he would jump back to WWE if he could get out of his TNA contract and get a WWE offer.
On August 4, James returned to the Boston based Millennium Wrestling Federation's Soul Survivor IV wrestling event and fanfest. James worked for the promotion when it opened in 2001, but no-showed a benefit for "Superstar" Billy Graham in October 2002 due to his "personal demons". MWF subsequently brought the real life situation into a storyline. James and Beau Douglas went on to win the Tag Team Championship from the Canadian Superstars (J-Busta and Dave Cole). During a pre-event question and answer session, James went into his hatred of Jim Ross and his feelings that WWE ruins families and lives.
James and Douglas lost the title back to the Canadians on October 27, 2007 at a Special Olympics fundraiser in Salem, Massachusetts.
After five years of bad blood, James made peace with promoter Dan Mirade for sabotaging the Graham benefit and agreed to return in the future. At Turning Point, James won one of the cases in the Feast or Fired match, which was later revealed to contain a World Tag Team Championship match. Instead of teaming with Kip, he chose his real life father "Bullet" Bob Armstrong to be his tag team partner. B.G. and Bullet Bob lost their title match against A.J. Styles and Tomko in the opening match of Against All Odds.
