Galaxy uses a dominant first half to take care of Vancouver

CARSON — Riqui Puig made his debut inside of Dignity Health Sports Park, but as a spectator and in a suit as he was introduced to the crowd. His teammates put on impressive first-half performance en route to a comfortable 5-2 win Saturday against the Vancouver Whitecaps Saturday in front of 21,465. “The group is very confident in what they’re doing and what they have to do,” Galaxy coach Greg Vanney said. Samuel Grandsir scored a pair of goals, Victor Vazquez chimed in a 20-yard blast and Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez converted a penalty kick all inside of the first 40 minutes of the half for a dominating 4-0 lead. Julian Araujo added two assists. For Vazquez, it was his first goal with his son Leo in town from Barcelona. Vanney called Grandsir’s performance “efficient.” “Solid, mature, co

Charles Bronson says he’ll ‘make history’ with first ever public parole hearing

Bonson has his eyes on ‘a Guinness for Crimbo’ (Pictures: Rex)Britain’s most notorious prisoner Charles Bronson says he ‘should be having a Guinness for Crimbo’ as he looks to secure a public parole hearing before the end of the year.  Last month he became the first person to formally ask for his next review to be held in the open.  Now 70, Bronson has spent the vast majority of the last 50 years behind bars, with much of that time either in solitary confinement or specialist units.   Writing to Metro.co.uk from the high-security estate at HMP Woodhill in Milton Keynes, he said ‘we could, should, make history here’.  Bronson is the UK’s most notorious prisoner (Picture: Rex/Shutterstock) He became the first person in the UK to request a public parole hearing after rules were c

White Socialite Hacked Her Mother to Death—and Tried to Blame a Black Man

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Getty/Public DomainOn November 17, 1948, police were called to the home of society matron Idella Thompson on tony Deer Creek Drive in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. The house was quiet, but as they made their way further inside, they discovered a grim scene. Idella was lying dead in her bathroom, which was “as bloody as could be,” Leland police chief Frank P. Aldridge said. Next to her lay a pair of pruning shears, the kind home gardeners everywhere use to cut roses and manicure their flower beds. It was the obvious weapon responsible for over 150 small, bloody cuts that covered Idella’s body. What happened next shook the community, and has echoed through the generations. When Beverly Lowry began to report on the murder that colored her childhood...

Paris Hilton Hasn’t Earned Her Big Hollywood Comeback

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyLess than a year before Framing Britney Spears there was This Is Paris, a sobering YouTube documentary about the past and present life of socialite-turned-DJ Paris Hilton, including allegations that she was abused while attending the notorious Provo Canyon School in her teens. The 2020 film is framed as a cathartic endeavor for Hilton as she addresses her trauma for the first time with family members and raises awareness about child abuse within the boarding facility. Simultaneously, it reevaluates Hilton’s reputation in the ‘90s and mid-2000s as a vapid party girl and highlights her contributions to our current social-media landscape. This Is Paris has since been criticized for omitting Hilton’s frequent use of racial and homo...

Union pour cold water over Fire

Fire goalkeeper Gaga Slonina punches the ball away during the game Saturday against the Union. He made three saves. Chicago Fire FC CHESTER, Pa. — The Fire took a step up in class Saturday, and it wasn’t pretty. The Eastern Conference-leading Union won 4-1, snapping the Fire’s unbeaten streak at five and dropping them three points out of the final playoff spot. “What I told the players after the game is that we have to put this one behind us,” Fire coach Ezra Hendrickson said. “We have had a good run of form, and tonight we just didn’t show up, and when you don’t show up in this league, especially against a team like that, you’re going to pay.” After the Union took a 2-0 lead at halftime, Chris Mueller scored four minutes into the second half to pull the Fire (8-11-6, 30 points...

Luis Robert’s wrist remains an issue

Luis Robert grimaces after suffering a wrist injury while trying to steal second base Friday against the Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field. Nuccio DiNuzzo/Getty Images Luis Robert’s sprained left hand kept the White Sox’ center fielder out of Saturday night’s lineup and perhaps longer. “He said it felt tight,” manager Tony La Russa said of Robert’s hand, which he injured on a headfirst slide into second base on an unsuccessful steal attempt in the sixth inning of Friday’s 2-0 victory over the Tigers. “Some soreness. I don’t think he’s done a lot of baseball stuff to see how much he can do, how available he would be during the game. But it’s all related to the wrist being sprained.” X-rays taken Friday were negative, and Robert’s status remains day-to-day. Robert has played in only...

Jose Abreu provides huge lift in White Sox’ victory over Tigers

Jose Abreu high-fives Gavin Sheets after scoring the go-ahead run in the seventh inning Saturday on a single by Andrew Vaughn. Quinn Harris/Getty Images Jose Abreu momentarily grabbed his right hamstring after legging out an infield hit with one out in the seventh inning Saturday night. But this was no time to seek medical assistance, especially with the White Sox desperately needing more offense. Abreu, known more for his power, took matters into his own hands with his legs. Abreu advanced from first to second on a deep fly to center by Yasmani Grandal and barely beat the tag from shortstop Javy Baez, who was so confident Abreu was out that he and several of his teammates trotted toward the dugout before a replay review indicated the call stood. That set up a go-ahead single by

I Was a God-Fearing Teen Tormented by Jesus and Fiery Loins

Photo Illustration by Erin O'Flynn/The Daily Beast/GettyIt’s nine o’clock on a Sunday morning. As ever, I sit in the balcony at church. My father, the pastor, is in the pulpit. I am in the throes of arousal. My roving eye lands on the buttery thighs of Parker Ainsworth and the pink trim of her panties, visible thanks to the recent popularity of the miniskirt. Next to Parker sit other girls my age—Jaynie and June, Debbie and Shauna, Delilah and Jezebel—with crossed legs, supple, tanned, and silky. I look away, bow my head in prayer, and search my head for Bible tips. “Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, etc., think on these things.” I think of Jesus’s bleeding, tortured, graphic death walk to Golgotha, a walk mad...

I’m a Cradle Catholic. I Don’t Want Christian Nationalism in My Church.

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyBefore I moved to Washington D.C., wrote for Playboy, and ran off with an ex-congresswoman—I wanted to be a Catholic monk. Growing up deeply Catholic, those paradoxes aren’t as absurd as they sound. We even have clergy in the family. One of them, a friar named Solanus Casey, is nearly a Catholic saint. The Detroit holy man died in 1957 and was beatified by Pope Francis in 2017 after a Central American woman claimed he miraculously healed her genetic skin condition. (Technically, he’s one Vatican-confirmed miracle short of official sainthood.) My ambitions of Holy Orders (the Catholic sacrament of entering the clergy) evaporated around the same time I soured on celibacy. But you get the ethos: I am among an exhausted group of in...

An Ex-Cop and a Preacher Wrestle With America’s Gun Violence

Photo Illustration by Erin O'Flynn/The Daily Beast/GettyThe cult of mass murders has jolted our moorings as a country, if not the very idea of America. So has the criminal violence in cities exploding since the pandemic hibernation. Yet 58 percent of households have no gun—a data point of hope amid the bloody tide of gun violence. Most of us in that 58 percent, I suspect, believe that schools, churches, synagogues, malls, stores, and post offices can somehow be restored as safer sites without fear of a psychopath wielding an assault rifle. Congress’ recent gun control law is a starter step. What will it really take to regain normality? For now, entering my neighborhood supermarket, I nod appreciatively to the security person realizing that s/he would likely fall to an intruder with an AK...
