Fans of the cult TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Woody Allen’s What’s Up, Tiger Lily? will love National Comedy Theatre’s Spoof ‘n Cinema. Known for its competitive improv shows, this hilarious comedy troupe pokes fun at dated, campy vintage films by replacing the soundtrack with off-the-wall live riffs. From cheesy sci-fi effects to melodramatic acting, no filmmaking sin can escape this show’s comic justice. As these so-bad-they’re-good movies play, the comedians overdub their own dialogue, twisting the characters and dreaming up absurd plots to fit the action on the screen, all while providing their own foley sound effects and scores. At the end of the night there will also be prizes and trivia.

Respect: A Musical Celebration of Women -- 100 Years of Popular Music Herberger Theater Center - Stage West, between N 2nd and N 3rd (222 E. Monroe St. Phoenix,AZ 85004)

Known for his high-energy kvetching and hilarious complaints about everyday life, stand-up comic Orny Adams has made appearances on The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman, and had his own hour-long Comedy Central special, Orny Adams: Takes the Third. He first gained national fame for co-starring in 2002’s Comedian, Jerry Seinfeld’s documentary about the stand-up comedy life. As an actor, Adams has appeared alongside Adam Sandler in Judd Apatow’s Funny People, and currently plays the eccentric Coach Finstock on MTV’s Teen Wolf.

Combining more than 50 great songs and a powerful story to match, Respect is a musical celebration of women in America over the past century. From Gershwin’s 1926 standard “Someone to Watch Over Me” to Cyndi Lauper’s 1983 smash “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,”Respect makes for a fun, informative and thoughtprovoking journey through pop music and the women’s rights movement. Created by Vanderbilt professor Dr. Dorothy Marcic, and based on the research for her landmark book Respect: Women and Popular Music, this musical production uses

The band consists of Laurie MacAllister (bass, banjo), Abbie Gardner (dobro, banjo) and Molly Venter (guitar). This past year, the ladies were invited to open multiple shows for music legend Willie Nelson and they performed at the venerable Rocky Grass festival in CO.

The Norwegians premiered last year Off - Broadway in New York to warm reviews. “Who knows whether Ms. Swanson is an original theatrical voice? There is every chance that she wrote ‘The Norwegians’ after falling asleep during a late-night rerun of ‘Fargo.’ But this profane, playfully dark comedy is often hysterical.” Anita Gates, The New York Times

‘Somewhere Slow’

‘At Middleton’

’12 O’Clock Boys’ Pug, a young boy growing up on a not too glamorous West Baltimore block, and after the sudden death of his older brother, finds solace in a group of illegal dirt bike riders known as The 12 O’Clock Boys who invade the streets and clash with police who are forbidden to chase the bikes for fear of endangering the public. Stan: Although a documentary by the formal definition, filmmaker Lotfy Nathan takes the new coined word ‘Docu-Drama’ to new heights. Actual footage of ‘The Boys’ night riding escapades, conversations with the pursuing police officers, and central character Pug as he grows up over a three year period, gives the viewer a ‘third eye’ glimpse into the factors that include Pug’s environmental/ neighborhood structure as contributing themes of influence of a young boy’s plight. (NR - 76 minutes)

Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga play two strangers who meet on their children’s campus tour at the idyllic Middleton College. What begins as an afternoon of fun soon becomes a revealing and enlightening experience that will change their lives forever. (R - 93 minutes) Joseph: Thanks primarily to a playful performance from star Vera Farmiga; “At Middleton” is - at least for a while - an incredibly charming little romance flick. However, as a result of co-star Andy Garcia’s tooquirky character with whom she has very little chemistry and a story that digs a lot deeper than it should, the movie ends with a thud despite having started out as light as a feather.

Jessalyn Gilsig plays a woman who gets mixed up in a convenience store robbery and makes a splitsecond decision to walk out of her life and into the unknown. On her travels, she meets a teenage drifter (Graham Patrick Martin) on his own journey of self-discovery. (NR - 96 minutes) Joseph: “Somewhere Slow” is a fascinating character study about one woman’s journey from an affected existence that leads her to nothing but unhappiness to a genuine one that grants her an opportunity to experience life for the first time. Actress Jessalyn Gilsig gives an extraordinarily engrossing performance, skillfully using body language and facial expressions to reveal her character’s internal transformation.

The following quotes were pulled from interviews conducted by AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film columnists with talent speaking on behalf of movies recently released in theaters.

Actor Andy Garcia (‘At Middleton’) By Joseph J. Airdo

“The conceit is that sometimes in life you can encounter sort of a thunderbolt - that moment when you see or meet someone that can change your life. I think that happens a lot of times. Whether you act upon that or not is a different story. But that is what the movie explores. The movie explores and maybe celebrates the conceit of that magical moment when two people meet and that special thing happens. “I think that is a very romantic notion and a lot of times it can change people’s lives. You can commit the relationship or continue to explore it or [allow it to be] just a moment in time. Whether it is a man or a woman, maybe that person becomes your best friend; but you feel a deep connection right away and you say,

‘I feel like I have known you forever and I really feel that we can be special friends or lovers or partners. This happens all of the time and I think that the movie tries to explore that. “On a personal level, what I take with me is the actual experience as an actor and the experience of making the film creatively with my fellow collaborators - from the director and the producers to Vera [Farmiga] and the [rest of the] cast. I also take great pride in the fact that we set out to tell a story on our own with very little help and we got it done. I think that is a very beautiful thing for all of us who worked hard to do that and all of us who showed up to be a part of this. So that is sort of where I hang my hat.” – Andy Garcia

Behind-the-Scenes - ‘Ride Along’ By Stan Robinson Director Tim Story presents the right blend of comedy, action, and the underlying dramatic theme of relationships in a fast paced, non-stop ride. In ‘Ride Along’, the fast-talking security guard Ben (played by Kevin Hart) joins his brother-in-law James (played by Ice Cube) who’s a police detective, on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta in order to prove himself worthy of marrying Angela (Tika Sumpter), James’ sister.

With a co-starring role in 2013’s highly successful ‘Grudge Match’, and also starring in ‘About Last Night’ opening on Valentine’s Day 14 February 2014, as well as appearances on ESPN’s SportsCenter as a guest analyst, ‘Ride

Along’ has more than a few priceless comedic moments. Universal Pictures release (PG-13 - 99 minutes)

By Santino DeFranco Follow me on twitter @Tinodefranco I haven’t had the fortune of traveling over the Atlantic, through the Mediterranean, and into the fields of ancient Italy (Sicily) that my ancestors called home yet. Will I ever? I don’t know. I feel I should. I mean, I am named after The Godfather movie, so there’s that. But, in actuality, if I ever do make the trek, it will most certainly not be to scour the villages of Sicily that my family left to pursue life in America, or to seek out my past, but to eat myself dizzy on an hourly basis. Since I haven’t had the pleasure of making it to my homeland, I am just going to have to go to La Fontanella Italian restaurant in Phoenix’s Arcadia area for the time being on a very regular basis. I went there with my wife and two small children and we were immediately welcomed like family. The woman who sat us (I believe the owner) was inviting and friendly and suggested we try one of the seafood dishes—my personal favorite at Italian eateries. Don’t get me wrong, I love the standard Italian dishes we have all come to love like everyone else (Chicken Parmesan, Lasagna, Veal Marsala etc.), but there’s a lot more to Italian food than just pizza, cheese, and red sauce. So, I took her advice and I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass served with pasta, bruschetta, and a little broth. I was not disappointed to say it mildly. The fish was tender but flaky with a sweetness to it that not even the Medici family could scare away. My wife ordered the lobster and ricotta filled ravioli dressed with lobster cream veloute’ served with asparagus, that absolutely melted in my mouth. But, don’t despair, we did have a chance to try their homemade rigatoni and homemade marinara sauce as our

little boys aren’t exactly the culinary aficionados that we thought we had spawned, and it was excellent. The pasta was light and perfectly el dente and the sauce tasted of fresh tomatoes and wasn’t over seasoned, a major pet peeve of mine—let the tomatoes do the work people! We finished the dinner with the single greatest piece of cheesecake I’ve ever had—or at least that I can recall, who knows if I’ve had a better piece accompanied by an over abundance of wine at some point? Which, speaking of wine, their selection was more than adequate to wet our tongues. Nothing to write an entire review on, but perfectly fine nonetheless. But, wait! There are some other beauties on the menu that I didn’t even get to try, so I’m hoping if I tell you about them, you might be able to let me know how they are via twitter. They, of course, had the traditional sausages and peppers on the menu, and a plethora of veal dishes like the pan-seared veal breast, dressed with black cherries with Ancient Florentine Alchermes spiced liqueur. However, the dish that caught my eye (and if the Chilean Sea Bass wasn’t so tasty I might be a little disappointed in myself) was the Rabbit alla Veneziana. It’s a quartered rabbit braised with herbs, sausage, mushrooms, olives, tomato and a little cream, served with grilled corn polenta. Um, yes. If you’d like to try the rabbit out for yourself, or any other dish, while enjoying a familiar atmosphere and eating authentic cuisine from Sicily, without traveling to the little island that looks like it’s being kicked by the boot, check out La Fontanella at 4231 E Indian School Rd., Phoenix, AZ or go to www.lafontanellaphx.com. And, as always, follow me on Twitter @ Tinodefranco and let me know where you’re eating.

The Irish believe that fairies are extremely fond of good wine. The proof of the assertion is that in the olden days royalty would leave a keg of wine out for them at night. Sure enough, it was always gone in the morning. - Irish Folklore

One of the things you can tell by looking at the color of the wine, is the region and climate where the grape vine is located. Darker shades of wine, namely the blackest reds and gold whites come from warm climates while lighter colors come from cooler climates and are lighter and less lush.

In ancient Babylon, the bride’s father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead (fermented honey beverage) he could drink for a month after the wedding. Because their calendar was lunar or moon-based, this period of free mead was called the “honey month,” or what we now call the “honeymoon.”

SUPER FAST NHRA FACTS quicker than it takes a production Porsche 911 Turbo to reach the same speed.

An NHRA Top Fuel dragster leaves the starting line with a force nearly five times that of gravity, the same force of the space shuttle when it leaves the launching pad at Cape Canaveral.

NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars travel the length of more than four football fields in less than five seconds. The nitromethane-powered engines of NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars produce approximately 8,000 horsepower, about 43 times that of the average street car.

An NHRA Funny Car is slowed by a reverse force more than seven times that of gravity when both parachutes deploy simultaneously.

NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars use between 10 and 12 gallons of fuel for a complete pass, including the burnout, backup to the starting line and quarter-mile run.

One cylinder of the eight cylinders of a Top Fuel dragster or a Funny Car produces 750 horsepower, equaling the entire horsepower output of a NASCAR engine. An NHRA Top Fuel dragster accelerates from 0 to 100 mph in less than .8-second, almost 11 seconds

GAME! COVER STORY

Suns Great Being NBA’s David By: Greg Esposito, Columnist, Suns.com If you ever have a chance to tour the Phoenix Suns Clubhouse on level zero of US Airways Center, you might notice a few personal touches in the players’ lockers. Most of the time it is the mundane like forward Channing Frye’s University of Arizona banner or rookie Archie Goodwin’s University of Kentucky memorabilia. Sometimes it’s the more humorous like a Coach Jeff Hornacek bobblehead gathering dust. Then other times it is an item that makes you think. Recently just such an item could be seen in many of the Suns’ lockers. No, don’t worry, it’s nothing embarrassing like a Justin Bieber song on a player’s phone. It was actually a book by Malcolm Gladwell entitled David and Goliath. The book, which chronicles the ways underdogs and misfits have defied the odds over the years, was a gift from assistant coaches Mark West and Irv Roland. It was given as a tool to help motivate the team and show them how sometimes the road less traveled is the perfect road to find yourself on. Even prior to reading it, that’s been the

case for the 2013-14 Suns. Despite national pundits picking them to finish last in the NBA’s Western Conference and throwing around the word “tank” like it was going out of style faster than twerking, this young and energetic crew, led by Head Coach Jeff Hornacek, have overcome the odds. Something that forward Gerald Green and his teammates attribute to staying dedicated and following their leaders’ examples. “We’ve got to stay humble,” Green said. “We’ve got to continue to work. We just have to listen to coach. He has given us great guidance and a great path to follow. As long as we follow his lead success is right around the corner.” That success has come as the team has played the David role while seemingly every team they faced, at least in analysts’ minds, were Goliath. Being under appreciated is not overly surprising for a team coming off a 25-win season. The thing is, this isn’t last season’s Suns. In fact, it’s probably more like your father’s Suns, or at least the Suns of your childhood. That’s because, thanks to the hiring of Hornacek, General Manager Ryan McDonough and the addition of 10 new members on the roster, there is a new philosophy. One that will evoke memories of the past faster than the offense the team runs. See, they say that speed can’t be taught. You either have it or you don’t. It comes naturally in Phoenix. From Connie Hawkins’ unique brand of basketball in the team’s infancy to the Sunderella Suns, the Cotton Express, KJ and Barkley’s Purple Gang from Phoenix, and the “seven seconds or less” teams, fast paced has always been synonymous with Suns. It is the reason why this season’s team feels so natural for fans to fall in love with. They run early and run often. Which is why they rank first in the NBA in fastbreak points per game and, at least unofficially, in highlight plays that get fans on their feet. Speed might not be able to be taught, but it can be passed down from generation to generation. It can be inherited. It can be in your DNA. It can simply be what you’re about. For Hornacek’s Suns team, it’s how they’re defying the odds, catching the nation’s attention and igniting the future of basketball in the Valley. That speed

and excitement comes in the form of the breathtaking and gravity defying dunks and improbable three pointers that land forward Gerald Green on SportsCenter’s Top 10 list on a regular basis. It is encapsulated by the unexpected comeback from a heart virus that kept big man Channing Frye off the court all of last season and his amazing play since returning. It is fueled by the surgeon like precision of plays run by guard Goran Dragic. The explosive drives to the hoop by Eric Bledsoe, when healthy, and the impressive emergence of center Miles Plumlee who went from playing 55 minutes in his rookie season last year in Indiana to having the 10th most dunks in the NBA in his sophomore season. It’s not just their propensity for playing at a faster pace than a NASCAR race that has helped them shatter expectations and capture imaginations. The team’s ability to work hard and never surrender despite what could seem like insurmountable odds has been a huge reason for their resurgence. It is something Dragic is the embodiment of. “I just try to battle,” Dragic said. “I try to be positive. I’m from Slovenia so back home it’s no excuse if you’re tired. Even when I was growing up, my father always said there’s going to be some hard days so you have to go through that. You can sleep after the thing that you do, if it’s work or a basketball game.” It’s that type of attitude, which is a teamwide phenomenon, that has helped the Suns not only overcome season expectations, but in game adversity, as well. The little team that could has proven that no opponent’s lead is safe. In November the Suns came back after trailing by 16 to Portland and 14 to New Orleans early in contests to win. The following month, in December, the Suns erased a 21 point Denver lead to win by four. And in January they had a 20 point swing going from trailing by 13 to the Lakers to winning by seven not to mention coming back from down 20 in Cleveland to win by nine.. Their hard work has also translated to career years for many players. Dragic, Green, Markieff Morris, Marcus Morris, Miles Plumlee, P.J. Tucker and Eric Bledsoe are all averaging career-highs in points per game. When you put all the pieces together it becomes clear how the little guy no one expected much from could achieve great things. If they keep it up, maybe they could find themselves in the pages of the second edition of David and Goliath. Crazier things have happened, like everyone who has ever defied the odds.

If he keeps emotions in check, Chan golden in Sochi This time, Patrick Chan vows, it will be different. This time, he won’t flub the landing on his opening triple axel or stumble through easy routines. And if anything doesn’t go right, he won’t become flustered and earn a penalty by finishing after the music. The costly mistakes of four years ago in Vancouver have become lessons well learned for Canada’s seven-time national figure skating champion, lessons he hopes to use to his advantage beginning this week at the XXII Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The 23-year-old Torontonian wound up finishing a disappointing fifth in his Olympics debut in 2010 in a performance so unlike the usual technical, athletic and artistic mastery he’s displayed elsewhere. The three-time defending World Champion would appear to be coming into Sochi in fine form, having dominated the field last month in Ottawa to win his seventh consecutive Canadian title. He also earned gold medals at Skate Canada in Saint John, New Brunswick, in October and Trophee Eric Bompard in Paris in November. If there’s a blemish on his recent record, it’s the uneven performance that garnered him a silver at December’s Grand Prix Final in Japan. There is much anticipation surrounding Canada’s men’s team, and Chan is a big reason for that. Now, if he can keep his emotions under control, success in Canada could give way to success on the world’s biggest stage. Coverage of figure skating begins Thursday, Feb. 6, on NBC.

MACK NEWTON ON… Trade-Offs I was recently having a conversation with a close friend, when she mentioned to me that all of life was a trade-off of sorts and we all needed to become good traders. She went on to mention that in life, we’re all trading one form of power for another… and I agreed, but I still had questions. As with many of the conversations I engage in, this one got me to questioning whether or not I really agreed with her and if I did, what kind of trader was I? To help me in my thought process, I decided to center this debate on my business, my relationships and certainly on my ongoing quest for self-improvement. Ok, here goes… in your personal life, your goal is to increase your return through your various trades on your efforts, your outputs and your energy. Your trading capital is your mental, emotional and physical energy. Your job is to get the highest possible return on the investment of yourself and your energies in your work and in your life. So, I guess I do agree…in a way, all of life is a trade. You are continually trading your time and your life for the results and the rewards that are important to you and that you value and enjoy. At any given time, you can look around yourself and total up the tangible and intangible assets of your life to determine just how well you have traded your time up until now. To give the concept a bit more spice, every time I use the word ‘time’, you can substitute the word ‘life’, if you like and see if that

changes your perspective on our little game. For example, if you are 30 years old and you have been working for 10 years and your net worth $40,000.00, you have traded each of those working years for $4,000.00. Is this a good trade, or not? I mean, if someone offered you $4,000.00 per year plus expenses to work for them, would you take it? Probably not. But, if you’ve only accumulated $4,000.00 per year for the last 10 years, that’s the kind of trade you’ve been making. However, one of the most important rules of success that I adhere to is this… it doesn’t matter where you’re coming from, all that really matters is where you’re headed. This is how I see it, if you’re not happy with how well you’ve traded in the past, it’s up to you to decide how to trade differently in the future. If you’re not happy with your current return on your invested energy and time, again, it’s up to you to improve the quantity and quality of your services and to concentrate your energy single-mindedly on where you can get a higher return in the future. Through my years of training in Tae KwonDo, I’ve learned that in concentrating your powers, your ability to think, to decide and then discipline yourself to deploy your energies for a higher and better return is very important to your eventual success and happiness. Once you’ve focused yourself on completing high-value, high-return tasks, you’ll get more energy and over time, you’ll create new and better habits that will serve you well. In fact, eventually you’ll lose patience with low-value activities and will only concentrate on activities that are more rewarding. In short, you’ll be a better trader. -Mack Newton Mack Newton is an 8th Degree Black Belt, Senior Master Instructor, Global Tae Kwon-Do Federation International and Chairman of the World Technical Committee

AZW Super Bowl XLVIII Preview For just the second time in 20 years, the Super Bowl features a match-up of top seeds. Super Bowl XLVIII pits the best offense in the NFL against the best defense. The oddsmakers have made the Broncos slight favorites at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. You can’t turn on the television without a breakdown of what might happen on the field. Here’s a non-biased take on how the two teams measure up and what to expect come the biggest game in all the land…

The Seahawks advanced to the franchise’s second Super Bowl with a 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Seattle (15-3, 12-6 ATS) boasts the league’s best pass defense and will test Manning and the Broncos’ topranked passing offense. The Super Bowl betting total was set at 47.5, and weather could play a factor. The game will be played outside at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Twelve of Seattle’s 18 games stayed UNDER the total this season. In contrast, 11 of Denver’s 18 games have gone OVER the total.

OFFENSE The Seahawks are going to try to establish their physical dominance with their power running game. Marshawn Lynch ran for 1.257 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, and his drive and power can wear down the most physical defenses. Golden Tate is a solid receiver who caught 64 passes for 898 yards and five touchdowns, while Doug Baldwin and tight end Zach Miller are solid playmakers as well. The Broncos have more gamechanging offensive weapons than any team in the league. When Manning attacks, he is going to look for Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas downfield. Wes Welker is one of the most reliable possession types in the league, while tight end Julius Thomas is an X-factor who can keep drives alive. Running back Knowshon Moreno is a solid runner who takes pressure off of Manning.

Supporters of the Seahawks have seen them go 15-3 and 12-6 ATS so far this season, while the Broncos are at 15-3 and 11-7 ATS. In totals betting, the Broncos are 11-7, while the Seahawks are 6-12. The Seahawks were a 23-17 winner in their most recent outing at home against the 49ers. They covered the 4-point spread as favorites, while the total score (40) made winners of UNDER bettors. Peyton Manning led the way last time out for the Broncos, connecting for 400 passing yards and a 26-16 victory over the Patriots at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. interior and never let LeGarrette Blount get started. While the Broncos ranked 26th against the pass, they will attempt to slow down the Seahawks with hardhitting linebacker Danny Trevathan and safety Duke Ihenacho.

DEFENSE This is the Seahawks’ most decisive advantage in this game. They are a big, strong, nasty and physical defense that is led by its Legion of Boom secondary. Richard Sherman has eclipsed Darrelle Revis at the top cover corner in the game, while free safety Earl Thomas is a dominant hitter. The linebacking crew of Bobby Wagner (team-high 120 tackles), K.J. Wright and Malcolm Smith is quite underrated. The Broncos shut down the Patriots’ running game because they controlled the line of scrimmage. Defensive tackle Terrance Knighton dominated the

Championship game victory over the Patriots, he was seemingly fighting for his legacy in his battle with Tom Brady. Manning came through with flying colors, throwing for 400 yards and dictating the outcome. Manning threw 55 TD passes this year and he is the game’s pre-eminent quarterback.

QUARTERBACK The Seahawks were the NFL’s best team in the regular season and they have continued to assert themselves in the playoffs. They continue to feed off of Russell Wilson’s athleticism and creativity. Wilson’s production has slowed in recent games with five TD passes in his last six games, but his ability to scramble, buy time and make big plays late could prove to be the difference maker in the Super Bowl. Peyton Manning was not only fighting to get his team to the Super Bowl when he led the Broncos to their AFC

KEY FACTORS Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are 1.5-point favorites heading into the contest. The Broncos (15-3, 11-7 ATS) finished strong, covering the spread in seven of their last 10 games and setting an NFL record for points scored in a season. Denver went 4-0 straight-up and against the spread versus NFC opponents this season. The Broncos were the only team to be favored in every game this season.

Offensively, the game matches up Denver’s No. 1-ranked offense (36.44 PPG) against a Seahawks defense that ranks No. 1 at 14.61 PPG. The Broncos passing attack has averaged 337.44 yards per game, more than the Seahawks give up through the air (177.78 YPG on average). In comparing defenses, the Seahawks own the league’s No. 12-rated front 7 in terms of stopping the run, allowing 109.5 yards per game when on the road. Denver, on the other hand, rates No. 19 this week in generating rushing yards at home.

MetLife Stadium, the site of Super Bowl XLVIII, has everything the NFL wants in a venue, with one exception: climate control. The NY/NJ Super Bowl Committee is proudly promoting the Feb. 2 NFL title game as the first outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl. MetLife Stadium, which opened in 2010 and is home to both the New York Giants and New York Jets, has everything but a roof. In terms of capacity it can put more than 82,000 fans in seats. That’s more than any other NFL stadium and is second only to Washington’s FedEx field, that with standing room, can hold 85,000 football fans. MetLife Stadium has more than 10,000 club seats and 218 luxury suites. It was built with numerous “green” initiatives involving everything from water conservation to nearby wetland protection. Transportation to the venue is as simple as it gets. Fans from New York City and surrounding suburbs in New York and New Jersey (and even Connecticut) can hop on either the New Jersey Turnpike or choose between train and bus options. But once they get there, at least in February, they’d better be prepared for cold weather. Or, should they? Average temperatures for East Rutherford, New Jersey in early February hover around 40 degrees for a high and 24 degrees for a low. That’s not bad football weather by any means. Like anywhere else, however, there are extremes of both warmer and colder temperatures. The former Giants Stadium, which existed next door to MetLife, was known for high winds, and in the Northeast in February, anything is possible when it comes to snowfall. Imagine a big nor’easter bearing down on the East Coast around kickoff time. The NFL, and especially Commissioner Roger Goodell, rolled the dice when they awarded MetLife Stadium Super Bowl XLVIII. The New York metro area is steeped in football history and the city is an obvious attraction for all the formalities surrounding the big game. Other than a domed stadium, it’s the perfect venue for all the fanfare surrounding the Super Bowl, even if it’s not in a warmer climate. The NFL, meanwhile, will keep their fingers crossed that Mother Nature cooperates. And what if she doesn’t? Most agree that the season’s biggest game should be played on a neutral field with no adverse conditions. But then again, as Northeast natives know, it wouldn’t surprise anyone to see another Ice Bowl such as what took place in Green Bay in 1967, or in more recent memory, the 2001 Snow Bowl, which was highlighted by Tom Brady’s famous tuck rule play. Those were playoff games, but with the Super Bowl in MetLife Stadium, in February, a similar weather event could make sports history.

Super Bowl weather: A closer look By GeorGe Dickie

Through Super Bowl XLVII, 31 of the championship games have been played in an open-air stadium. Of those 31, none have been played in a city where the high temperature was lower than 43 degrees. But those games weren’t played in East Rutherford, N.J., the controversial site of Super Bowl XLVIII, where the average high temperature on Feb. 2 is 39 degrees. Over the past 10 years on Feb. 2, temperatures in East Rutherford around 6:30pm – the approximate kickoff time for the big game – have ranged from the low 20s to the mid-40s. So what if it is cold for the game? Perhaps surprisingly, cold weather doesn’t usually have much of an effect on NFL games. According to STATS LLC, since 1991 the average combined score for games in 70-plus degree weather is 42.5 points and drops less than two points, to 41 points per game, when the temperature is below 40 degrees. The kicking game, however, could suffer as kickers make 66.8 percent of their field goal attempts when it is at least 70 degrees and just 58.1 percent in sub40 degree weather. Snow, on the other hand, could be more of an issue. It has never snowed during an outdoor Super Bowl but it has snowed twice on game day, both times in Detroit: at the Silverdome in 1982 and Ford Field in 2006. The possibility of snow exists for East Rutherford, as February is the area’s snowiest month.

However, it has snowed on Feb. 2 in just 18 percent of the years between 1931 and 2013, according to data for nearby Newark, N.J. Another factor to look out for – regardless of the game-time temperature – is wind. MetLife Stadium’s predecessor, Giants Stadium, was notorious for its swirling winds that caused problems for quarterbacks and especially kickers. In the first few seasons at MetLife the wind hasn’t seemed to play as much of a factor as it did at the old stadium, despite being adjacent to the former facility’s site, but the winds in New Jersey typically are stronger during the winter than other times of the year due to stronger temperature and pressure differences. For the record, the strongest sustained wind recorded during an outdoor Super Bowl has been 15 mph with the strongest recorded gust being 30 mph during Super Bowl XIV at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. If the game, and the week of festivities leading up to it, goes off without major weather issues, it could pave the way for other cold weather locales – Lambeau Field, perhaps? – to host the game outdoors. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, it’ll likely go down as a one-and-done experiment for Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league.

SUPER BOWL XLVIII PREVIEW

AZWeeklyMagazine.com


1) super Bowl xLii (Feb. 3,  2008): New york Giants 17,  New england Patriots 14. In the dictionary under “barnburner,” you’ll see this game – it was that good. The 18-0 Pats were favored by 14 points over the wild-card Giants, and for three quarters of low-scoring football, it looked as though win No. 19 was in the bag. But a flurry of clutch Eli Manning completions, one a critical 32yarder that David Tyree pinned against his helmet as he was hit, brought them two fourth quarter scores that gave the G-Men the victory. 2) super Bowl xxxViii (Feb. 1,  2004): New england Patriots  32, carolina Panthers 29. Two years after going 1-15, the Panthers would make their first Super Bowl appearance, and they would acquit themselves quite nicely. A defensive struggle for three quarters gave way to a record 37 points of scoring by both teams in the fourth quarter, capped by Vinatieri’s 41-yard field goal with four seconds remaining that gave New England its second title. Many fans and sportswriters still refer to this as the greatest Super Bowl ever played. 3) super Bowl xxxVi (Feb. 3,  2002): New england Patriots  20, st. Louis rams 17. The first Super Bowl after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks was designated a National Special Security Event, but it

produced one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history and gave the Pats the first of three titles in the ’00s. After QB Warner rallied the Rams from 14 points down to tie it late in the fourth quarter, New England kicker Adam Vinatieri booted a game-winning 48yard field goal as time expired. 4) super Bowl xxxiV (Jan.  30, 2000): st. Louis rams 23,  tennessee titans 16. After falling behind, 16-0, after three quarters, the Titans came to life, running off 16 unanswered points to tie the score with 2:12 left, before Rams QB Kurt Warner pushed his team back ahead with a 73-yard scoring drive. But the Titans weren’t done, as QB Steve McNair drove them deep into Ram territory before wide receiver Kevin Dyson was stopped at the 1-yard line on the game’s final play, one that has become known as simply “The Tackle.” 5) super Bowl Vii (Jan. 14,  1973): Miami Dolphins 14,  Washington redskins 7. Don Shula’s Dolphins nailed down a flawless 17-0 1972 campaign in this defensive struggle that saw the Redskins’ only score come on an interception of placekicker Garo Yepremian’s pass off a blocked field-goal attempt. No team would come close to the Dolphins’ feat until 2008, when the undefeated New England Patriots would fall to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII,

the fourth quarter, when game MVP Terry Bradshaw struck for a flurry of clutch completions to give his team two quick scores with time ticking away. The championship was the fourth in six years for Pittsburgh, thus marking the Bradshaw/Chuck Noll era as an NFL dynasty. 9) super Bowl xxV (Jan. 27,  1991): New york Giants 20,  Buffalo Bills 19. The patriotic fervor generated by the first Gulf War (and Whitney Houston’s rousing rendition of the National Anthem) set the tone for an exciting game that would produce the smallest margin of victory in Super Bowl history. Among many fine individual performances that day was game MVP Ottis Anderson’s 102 yards rushing that led the New York attack. But unfortunately, what everyone remembers is Buffalo placekicker Scott Norwood’s missed 47-yard field goal attempt with eight seconds remaining that forever stained him with the nickname “Wide Right.” 10) super Bowl i (Jan. 15,  1967): Green Bay Packers  35, kansas city chiefs 10. Yep, a blowout, but the only reason this game makes the list is for its historical significance – it is, after all, the first. And it took place amid the backdrop one would expect for an Arena Football 2 game: The game failed to sell out the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, so it was blacked out in the L.A. area – and the empty seats were many. In the end, the American Football League’s Chiefs were simply no match for Vince Lombardi’s championship machine.

Indelible Super Bowl Personalities

William “the refrigerator”  Perry On a 1985 Chicago Bears team filled with rebels, gamers and all-around sweet guys, this rookie defensive tackle gained notoriety not so much for his talent or personality but for his girth. At 6-feet, 2-inches and 350 pounds, “The Fridge” became coach Mike Ditka’s go-to guy as a fullback in shortyardage situations and even scored a touchdown in Super Bowl XX. But his real claim to Super Bowl fame came for his record ring size of 25, more than twice of that of an average adult male.

Joe Namath Fans of the American Football League in 1969 knew “Broadway Joe” as the cannon-armed quarterback of the New York Jets, whose confidence and talent on and off the field earned him admirers of both genders. His matter-offact “guarantee” of a Jets victory in Super Bowl III seemed at the very least amusing and at most a foolish taunting of a heavily favored Baltimore Colts team. That is, until he delivered a win in an efficient performance that gave the fledgling league its first triumph over the NFL establishment and the Jets their only league title to date, and prompted the leagues to merge two years later.

Jim McMahon On a 1985-86 Chicago Bears team full of characters, this rebel in designer sunglasses stood above all. In the weeks prior to Super Bowl XX, McMahon was fined for wearing sponsored headbands, prompting him to don one with “Rozelle” (for then-NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle) scrawled on it in magic marker. His endeavors to make friends and influence people continued when he labeled the women of host city New Orleans “sluts” and mooned a news crew during practice. But in the end, none of it mattered. McMahon would quarterback the Bears to a dominating 46-10 victory over the New England Patriots.

John riggins A bonafide eccentric given to unusual haircuts and living out of his van by the Potomac River, this Hall of Fame running back could be found frequenting Washington, D.C., drinking establishments at any hour of the day or night. But that never showed up in his performances on the field, especially in 1983 in Super Bowl XVII, when his clutch 43-yard touchdown run led the Redskins to a 27-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins and earned Riggins game MVP honors.

The touchdown stunned Bengals QB Boomer Esiason, who to this day recalls it as the day his “I’m going to Disney World” moment was yanked out from under him.

Imagine palm trees, sea breezes and a temperate climate, and you’ve got a handle on, not your next Caribbean vacation, but the scene of the XXII Winter Olympics, Sochi, Russia. Yes, this Eastern European resort city of 340,000 on the northern shores of the Black Sea is not your average Winter Games host, boasting a climate closer to Virginia than Lake Placid, Lillehammer or Innsbruck. But that shouldn’t detract from the action on the slopes, ice or halfpipe, given indoor venues, high-elevation ski trails and advanced snowmaking technology. Coverage gets going Thursday, Feb. 6, with the first of 17 days of action in alpine skiing, snowboarding, figure and speed skating, bobsled, biathlon, and more. NBC will team with broadcast partners NBC Sports Network, MSNBC, CNBC and USA Network to provide 539 hours of televised events in addition to the more than 1,000 hours on NBCOlympics.com. Bob Costas, who will host NBC’s prime-time and late-night coverage, is eager to see the 12 new events, including women’s ski jumping, ski halfpipe and the figure skating team event, making their Olympic debuts at Sochi. Figure skating is also a major storyline in women’s singles, where the U.S. has not won a medal since 2006, a drought that Costas thinks could come to an end in Sochi. “The U.S. will have three women skaters in Sochi,” he says, “and two of the hopefuls have demonstrated the potential to win a medal – two-time reigning U.S. champion Ashley Wagner and the up-and-coming 18-year-old Gracie Gold, who placed fifth and sixth, respectively, at last season’s World Championships. Winning gold may be out of reach with the sensational Vancouver champion Yu-Na Kim of South Korea returning for Sochi, but the Americans should challenge for a place on the podium.” Wagner sees the women’s field with Kim as being “extremely competitive” and thus has ramped up the technical complexity of her routines. She’s happy to accept the mantle of being the American women’s next great hope. “That type of recognition just means that I’ve been doing really well over the past couple of months, and I have something to be very proud of,” the 22-year-old Californian says. Another athlete looking forward to Sochi is U.S. bobsled driver Elana Meyers. At the 2010 Games in Vancouver, Meyers and partner Erin Pac pulled off what many considered to be an upset when they piloted their USA-2 sled to a bronze medal.

Bad beat triggers Super 77 progressive jackpot at Wild Horse Pass Winning a hand of Texas Hold ‘em with four-of-a-kind is a pretty good bet – However, on Wednesday December 25th at about 3am in the morning on Christmas Day – Brent Boughton discovered that losing with such a terrific hand can be much more rewarding. The Valley resident received the best holiday gift he could have hoped for that day when he took home the largest share of the $118,000 jackpot, because his unlikely loss triggered the Super 77 linked progressive jackpot at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino. The Super 77 jackpot is triggered when a hand of four-of-a-kind (featuring sevens or better) is beaten by another player at the table. It’s called a “bad beat” because of the incredibly low probability of losing with such a great hand. It turned into the best beat Brent could have hoped for and helped him ring in a very happy new year with the second largest poker jackpot of 2013 at Gila River Casinos.

The Super 77 linked progressive jackpot which connects Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino and Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino was at $118,000 when Brent’s four-of-a-kind nines (pocket 9’s plus two more that hit the board) was beaten by Sean Curtis who was holding Pocket Kings and caught two additional kings during the flop, turn and river cards!

by the Gila River Indian Community including; Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino, Lone Butte Casino, and Vee Quiva Hotel & Casino. All three casinos offer a combination

of slots, table games, bingo, poker and hotel and are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Additional information on these and other events is available by calling 1-800-946-4452, or on their website at www.wingilariver.com.

This amazing jackpot was split between the six players at the table. Here’s how the payouts looked; Brent’s losing hand paid an incredible $58,500, Sean’s winning hand paid $29,252, plus of course the pot. The remaining 4 players at the table included; Peter T., Timothy B., Reza A. and Savas E. These 4 lucky players split the remaining $29,252 or to be more precise $7,312 each. An amazing payout for just playing at that table! Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino is located at 5040 Wild Horse Pass Blvd in Chandler.

TAP HANDLES AND KEGS expensive beer, or the promise of less expensive beer.” Now on to tap handles. These too remain the property of either the brewery or the distributor depending on the arrangement. In Arizona it is illegal for the handle (or any type of permanent point of sale material – tackers, neons, etc) to be given to an account. The account is only borrowing the handle (or other point of sale material) during the period they have that beer on tap.

Today is Rant Day…that’s right we have a couple of things to rant about. Hopefully you will get something out of this. The two topics here are empty keg shells and tap handles. Now, I am certain that any of you reading this return your kegs to the place of purchase for a refund of your deposit. However, there are some nefarious people that put those empty keg shells to evil uses. Some of the most common are homebrewers that choose to convert the kegs to brew kettles and such, and folks that use them for things like sawhorses or bookcases. I guess they assume that an empty keg can only be used once and then is no longer viable. Of course this is patently incorrect. Kegs allow beer enthusiasts to experience draft beer outside the brewery. The keg is reusable many times, which makes it an incredibly “green” package. It is estimated that the craft beer industry loses kegs at the rate of 5-6 percent annually. If you calculate that out, it means the cost of lost kegs to craft brewers is around $15 million each year. Think about what that does to both the cost of beer as well as the profitability of your favorite

brewery. Contrary to popular opinion, the vast majority of craft brewers are not getting rich…they are doing this for the love of great beer and are just happy to make a living doing what they love. Every time they lose a keg it is $150 or more that effectively comes right out of their pocket. Why would anybody want to do that to a brewery they claim to love? But wait, you paid a $30 deposit on the keg. Doesn’t that mean you can do anything you want with the keg? Absolutely not…that keg remains the property of the brewery and the $30 only goes a small way to recouping the loss a brewery suffers when they lose a keg. Unless you have something from the brewery indicating you now own that keg, then the keg is still the property of the brewery. By cutting into it, or using it for some other purpose you are committing a crime. Brewers take these losses seriously and there are parts of the country where keg thieves are being prosecuted. There is good news though. Recently, the Brewers Association announced the launch of KegReturn. com, a website that “provides tools

to help consumers, homebrewers, retailers, wholesalers, brewers and scrap yards redirect kegs back to the breweries that own the kegs.” For consumers who have a keg they want to return, KegReturn.com allows users to search a database of photos and descriptions to help them determine the owner of a stray keg. Kegs are often “branded” with striping or other markings—not unlike cattle brands—that are very helpful when trying to identify the owner. KegReturn.com allows users to contact a brewery directly if they believe they have found one of that brewery’s kegs. The idea is simple, and with ongoing additions from brewers and participation by those finding and using kegs, KegReturn.com will be valuable in reuniting kegs with their rightful owners. “Brewers incur a huge per barrel charge on keg loss,” said Chris Swersey, Brewers Association technical brewing projects coordinator. ”In many states, this amount is more than the state excise tax on beer. There is no better incentive for a consumer than the threat of more

Now you may say, “what about bars that decorate with tap handles?” Good question. The quick answer is that these bars usually rotate their beers frequently and regularly bring in the beer represented by the tap handles. In this case, the distributor or brewery has decided it makes sense to leave a handle on permanent loan to the account so they don’t constantly have to send one out. We frequently see tap handles for sale on eBay or Craigslist. 99 times out of 100 those handles are probably stolen. We have seen instances where a bar manager will take them from the bar and sell them for personal profit. In this case, not only is the bar manager stealing from the brewery or distributor, he is also stealing from his workplace. If a bartender offers to sell you a tap handle from the bar they work at… they are probably stealing it. Same is true with glassware. This is not legally allowed to be provided to the bar for resale. Any glassware they sell, they must purchase through some sort of third party. A good rule of thumb on tap handles is that if it is currently an active handle being used by that brewery (as opposed to a discontinued handle) it is probably stolen. Again, why would you want to drive costs up for your favorite brewery by stealing their property? Continued On Page 56...

...Continued from page 54 Currently most distributors and breweries do not require a deposit on tap handles. However, as tap handles start to cost more money…the average cost for a tap handle is about $30…it is likely we will see bars being charged deposits for the handles. Since the bar has to put more cash out, even though they will get it back, they will raise beer

prices. Respecting the breweries and their property, whether handles, kegs, neon signs or whatever, will help keep the cost of beer down. A good thing for everybody. Thus endeth today’s rant. Next week, we will probably start looking at the upcoming Strong Beer Festival and Beer Week.

LIQUID SOL MUSIC FESTIVAL ADDS LOVEHAMMERS, 28 NORTH, 7HORSE TO THE LINEUP Liquid Sol Music Festival has added renowned rock bands, Lovehammers, 28 North and 7Horse to the already impressive lineup set for Saturday, March 15. Liquid Sol Music Festival will take place at Sportsman’s Park outside of University of Phoenix Stadium located at 1 West Cardinals Drive in Glendale, Ariz. Gates open at 10 a.m. Tickets are available now at www. liquidsolfest.com.   The alternative rock band hailing from Chicago, Lovehammers, consists of lead singer Marty Casey, drummer Bob Kourelis, bass Dino Kourelis and lead guitarist/backup vocals Billy Sawilchik. Having headlined at the Get Live tour that sold out at almost every venue, the band has also supported Cake, Chevelle, INXS, KISS, Nickelback, Slash, Theory of a Deadman and The Wallflowers. Their latest album “Set Fire,” released in November 2012, broke three different Billboard charts including Billboard New Artists and Billboard Heatseekers, rising to the top 20 on both, and Billboard East North Central Heatseekers Regional chart where they reached No. 1. The band’s first single from the album, “Into the Insane” ranked in the top 50 at Active Rock and Mainstream Rock radio formats. After the success of their first single, the rock band decided to release their second and current single from the album, “Price I Pay” that has risen to the top 50 and climbing on Active Rock radio. The band has also appeared live on VH1 playing acoustic versions of their songs. Pittsburgh-based rock band 28 North includes Mark Glinka, Michael Lindner, Taylor Netzler and Tyler Bond. The band was recently voted Best Band in Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh Magazine. 28 North has played all across the U.S. and has performed with Blues Traveler, Crash Kings, Dawes and Young the Giant to name a few. Their most recent single “Call Me Up” was released in November 2013 and the band is planning on releasing their debut album, “World of Fire”, sometime this year. The band performs regularly at The Roxy, The Viper Room and

House of Blues in Los Angeles. The emerging Los Angeles and Seattle duo, Joie Calio and Phil Leavitt, better known as 7Horse are rock veterans. The band’s debut album, “Let the 7Horse Run” released in November 2011 garnered attention to their breakout song “Meth Lab Zoso Sticker,” which was featured in the recent Grammy-nominated film “Wolf of Wall Street” soundtrack and the movie’s trailer. The song will also be featured throughout this year’s Super Bowl season on FOX NFL Sports. 7Horse has finished recording their newest album that is projected to be released this year, with a national tour to follow.   Previously announced bands include: Train, The All-American Rejects, Authority Zero, Blind Melon, BoDeans, Buckcherry, Cracker, Ed Kowalczyk, Everclear, Fuel, Gin Blossoms, The White Buffalo, Tonic, Vertical Horizon and Kelley James.   The all ages event will feature three stages of live multi-genre national and regional artists, a beer garden, live charity auction and multiple interactive activities such as zip line, rock wall and a firefight car extrication. There will also be a special area dedicated to kids where it will feature more child-friendly activities including a coloring station, firefighter kids agility course, firefighter meet and greets and more. Liquid Sol Music Festival’s beer garden will feature a second live entertainment stage and attendees will have the opportunity to sample craft beers for 35 different breweries. The beer garden will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. General admission tickets are available at $89 and VIP packages are available starting at $189. Children 10 and under are free in GA area with purchase of an adult ticket. For more information visit www.LiquidSolFest.com.
