Anticipation high for Territorial Cup game – Yahoo Sports

In 2012, the Sun Devils scored 24 points in the fourth quarter to rally for a 41-34 win in Tucson. Arizona State topped that last season, routing Arizona 58-21 in Tempe. With 19 seniors playing their final home game, the Wildcats really want this one. ”You know that for your fans, particularly in state, that the rivalry game is going to mean a lot to them, but I promise it doesn’t mean any more to them than it does to the players and coaches,” Rodriguez said. A few more things to look for when the Sun Devils and Wildcats meet: CLOSE GAMES: Outside of last year’s rout, the Duel in the Desert has been filled with close games in recent years. Seven of the past 10 have been decided by a touchdown or less, including 2010, in which Arizona State blocked an extra point at the end of regulation and again in the second overtime to win 30-29. HAIL MARYS: Arizona and Arizona State will enter their rivalry game with a similar-but-rare play under their belts: the Hail Mary.

YOU DESCRIBE A COUPLE OF THESE CONTESTANTS AS B—HES. Yes, and I don’t want them to be bitches. What I don’t like about some of those shows is that they don’t provide good role models for girls. I don’t think you have to be b—hy to succeed. THE SHOW ALSO SHEDS A POSITIVE LIGHT ON THE FASHION INDUSTRY. What is interesting about television today is that it draws you into a world with authenticity.

Wacky Celeb Fashion: Rita Ora Vs. Miley Cyrus

28 Nov

Please use a supported version for the best MSN experience. Wacky celeb fashion: Rita Ora vs. Miley Cyrus By By Gena Oppenheim of Wonderwall | We’re almost always amused by Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus’ wacky and often similar wardrobe choices. Take their sparkling black-and-white jumpers. Rita wore an Emilio Pucci one with an intricate design and low-cut sheer neckline for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. But we think the pattern on Miley’s lookalike outfit for the 2013 Billboard Awards was too bold.

We have to have an effort to get him at least 20 shots, every night. “(Davis) isn’t a selfish player. He’s going to make the right play, and our guys know that.

Calvin Klein’s Plus-Size Model Stirs Controversy With New Campaign – Us Weekly

Credit: Lachlan Bailey On Tuesday, Nov. 11, the model addressed the controversy and defended Calvin Klein on Today. “It’s really unfortunate because Calvin Klein has done something that’s really groundbreaking,” she told co-host Savannah Guthrie. “There’s not a lot of spots for us to fit in the fashion industry. They released the campaign with me right alongside all of the other girls of varying shapes and sizes, and didn’t make a fuss about it.” PHOTOS: Celebs who love models Dalbesio is most proud of the fact that she has become an inspiration. “I don’t really have any reason to complain, but I’m getting these emails from 15-year-old girls in the middle of America that are saying, Thank you so much, I’ve never seen myself represented in this way before,” she said on Today. PHOTOS: Celebs’ early modeling pics For their part, the fashion brand never used the term “plus size” in relation to the campaign, instead concentrating on the women as a group. “The new Calvin Klein Underwear Perfectly Fit imagery features models Myla Dalbesio, Jourdan Dunn, Amanda Wellsh, Ji Hye Park, and the face of the brand, Lara Stone, in several styles,” a statement to Us Weekly reads.

Nobody in need isdenied. The center also feeds about another 8,000 people who come to the senior center for lunch three days aweek. We are here to ensure no senior goes hungry, said Alison McArthur, the centers executivedirector. The program receives state and federal money and grants, but those dont cover the costs, especially as grocery prices increase. It also gets donations and businesssponsors. McArthur said this is the first year the program has broken even, but that might not last long as winter approaches and more people are in need offood. Thats why the center is excited about the fundraising potential of the fashionshow.
