Thirteen years ago today back in 2006, moe. kicked off their winter tour at The Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA. The band was dialed in from the get-go, busting out a twenty-minute, hugely jammy “Brent Black” to open the show. During the five-song first set, the band also covered Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android” for the first time, a track they’ve played fourteen times and that hasn’t been seen since 2010. After the break, the band by no means slowed down, with crowd-pleasing non-stop second set.You can listen to full audio from the show below, courtesy of Jon Merin.

Philippe Coutinho and Raheem Sterling secured what could prove a vital 2-0 victory against Southampton – the kind of display which highlighted to Lovren the young squad’s potential. “We have massive, massive talent and we can just go higher and higher because everyone is so young,” the 25-year-old defender said. “With the talent and young (players), I think we can achieve whatever we want, whatever we imagine. “We just need to work hard and give our best on the pitch.” The average age of Liverpool’s line-up at St Mary’s was 23.4 years – the youngest in this Premier League this season, according to Transfermarkt. From 19-year-old Jordan Ibe to Martin Skrtel, the only starter in their thirties, it was a solid team display in difficult conditions at Southampton as wind and rain battered the pitch. Lovren, like Adam Lallana, also had to handle the attention of the St Mary’s crowd, who let them know in no uncertain terms their dissatisfaction at their summer exits. “It was an amazing win,” Lovren told LFCTV. “It was a tough game for us and we knew when we arrived here that it would be difficult for us. Press Association Much was expected of Brendan Rodgers’ men this season, although they initially struggled to adapt to life without star turn Luis Suarez. Since December, though, the Reds have improved apace and on Sunday moved within two points of the top-four, thanks to a seventh win during a 10-match unbeaten run in the Premier League. “It’s a massive three points for us, now we’re a step closer to the top so we need to continue like this. I think we did a great job. “Of course, it was a special moment to play against my ex-team – especially after the win, I’m more happy.” The victory was not without controversy, though, as referee Kevin Friend made a string of poor calls, with Filip Djuricic twice taken down in the box before Lovren handled late in the first half. “I am not sure for all three (penalty claims),” Lovren said. “I know for mine when I touched the ball with the hand, I know it was too close. It was a deflection so I couldn’t react and I don’t think it was a penalty. “For the first two, I am not sure – I didn’t see. I was a little bit far away. I think at the end I think the referee was doing a great job.” That is not something Southampton midfielder Djuricic agreed with after being taken down by Emre Can and then Joe Allen in the opening minutes. “I think the second one was a clear penalty,” he said. “The first one, okay, I fell down because I felt the contact. “The referee in that case could or could not whistle, but the second one I think was a clear one and it could decide the game on a different way, but we could also play a little bit better in the offensive line, and be more direct.” Despite the overwhelming sense of frustration, things still look good for Southampton, who nobody could have foreseen sitting fifth with 12 matches remaining. “Everything is one point and two points in front is Arsenal,” Djuricic added after his first start. “You saw on Saturday they got the penalty that was out of the box I think and the second goal was offside and today we didn’t have luck, but in football you need to deserve luck, so I hope (the) next game shall be better.” Dejan Lovren believes there is no limit to what this Liverpool side can achieve, thanks to the abundance of young, exciting talents within the ranks.

This weekend, Syracuse will retake the ice while conference rivals begin preparation for the College Hockey America tournament.And the Syracuse head coach isn’t happy with the scheduling quirks.‘It’s just unfortunate with our schedule, and I don’t know what they were thinking,’ Flanagan said. ‘… Mercyhurst and Robert Morris, they don’t play this weekend, so that’s kind of unfortunate. It’s almost like the top two teams are getting a bye.’As SU waited and prepared the past two weeks, the Orange (9-20-3, 0-7-3 CHA) has also been plagued by injuries and sickness. While the time off has affected Syracuse’s rhythm, it also gave the team extra time for preparation for its final regular-season series against Niagara (9-14-8, 2-5-3 CHA) this weekend in Niagara Falls. SU is still in search of its first conference victory this season.Had SU taken the ice this past weekend, Flanagan said the team would have had just 13 skaters due to injuries and sickness. Instead, Syracuse has had a chance to get healthy and presumably get back to better strength by Friday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘We’ve had a little bit of a sickness going around, but it’s good that we have a week off here to get healthy for the last two weekends,’ SU goaltender Kallie Billadeau said. ‘… We had a couple girls out, but hopefully everyone will be ready to go for Niagara.’The time off also let the team regroup. The Orange is trying to find a winning formula on the ice.The Lakers swept SU in its last series, leaving Syracuse without any momentum going into its layoff.‘The week off was really nice because a lot of people are sick and injured,’ SU forward Holly Carrie-Mattimoe said, ‘so it’s nice to rest up, and, on the other hand, we kind of got a break and rest up and focus on our systems and getting ready for the playoffs.’As for the skaters actually taking the ice, the major focus of these two weeks of practice has been a weakness all season. The SU offense has struggled to capitalize on breakaways with an advantage.With fewer players available due to the injuries and sickness, the Orange focused on those situations.‘When we do two-on-ones and stuff,’ Carrie-Mattimoe said, ‘we don’t really have set people to go with, so we’re kind of mixing people up and seeing if we have chemistry with other people.’Billadeau has seen this improvement firsthand.As a goaltender, the sophomore is the one tasked with stopping the two-on-ones in practice. With two uninterrupted weeks of practice, Billadeau has seen all aspects of the two-on-one improve.‘We’ve been working hard at that all year, the offensive and defensive aspects,’ Billadeau said. ‘I just have to communicate with the ‘D,’ tell them where I think they should go. … It’s gotten a lot better offensively and defensively.’None of that will matter if Syracuse can’t capitalize in the games. And if there’s any weekend to come through, it’s this one.Though the Orange would love to get its first conference win of the season, SU is shooting for a weekend sweep.‘This is by far our most important weekend,’ Billadeau said. ‘It’s do-or-die pretty much. We don’t want to play Mercyhurst in the first round, obviously, so we’ve just got to throw everything on the line, and we’ve got to get two wins. It’s as simple as that.’[email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+
