Boston Celtics rookie Tacko Fall signs several taco-related items at Massachusetts meet and greet

It was really only a matter of time.

Boston Celtics rookie Tacko Fall, who is still vying for an official roster spot, appeared to be a fan favorite at a meet and greet event in Massachusetts on Tuesday.

CELTICS SIGN 7-FOOT-7 ROOKIE, WHO WOULD BE TIED FOR TALLEST EVER TO PLAY

The 7-foot-7-inch center from Central Florida was asked to sign several taco-related items at the event, according to the Boston Globe. The items included a box of taco shells, a taco hat, a tray from Taco Bell and even a picture of a taco.

Fall, 23, is not an official member of the Celtics just yet. The team signed him as an undrafted free agent and made his presence felt during the team’s Summer League games in Las Vegas.

He spoke to the Basketball Hall of Fame’s “60 Days of Summer” on Monday about the team’s young roster.

“You can tell it’s such a positive vibe around it and everyone is working hard,” he said. “The ones who are here, the ones who are with Team USA, us — we started in summer league — I’m just looking forward to what’s to come.”

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray price tag revealed

When the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was revealed in July, GM President Mark Reuss said it would start at “under $60,000.” Well, it does. Just.

Chevy announced Thursday that the new mid-engine supercar will have a base price of $59,995 for an 1LT model, including delivery. That’s just $3,000 more than the outgoing front-engine car.

THE 2020 CORVETTE STINGRAY HAS A FEATURE THAT LET’S YOU ANNOY EVERYONE

The Stingray will be available in three trims that offer increasing levels of equipment, with the LT2 priced at $67,295 and the LT3 $71,945. A Z51 performance package that adds an updated suspension, tires, bodywork and other equipment costs $5,000 and a hydraulic nose-lift to avoid scraping the front of the car on inclines is $1,495.

The Stingray is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 rated at 490 hp, or 495 hp with an optional performance exhaust. Chevrolet said some versions will have a top speed of 194 mph and others will be able to accelerate to 60 mph in under 3.0 seconds.

Of course, good luck finding one at list price when production begins late this year. GM head designer Mike Simcoe recently said that the first year of production is essentially spoken for already, which means that big dealer markups are likely on early cars.

Homan shares new video on ICE facility attack: Result of ‘hateful rhetoric’ from AOC’s ‘Squad,’ 2020 Dems

Westlake Legal Group homanWA Homan shares new video on ICE facility attack: Result of 'hateful rhetoric' from AOC's 'Squad,' 2020 Dems fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc David Montanaro article 0cf9ecf8-fdd2-5f54-bdda-1db269ae23d5

Former acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Tom Homan said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday that the “hateful rhetoric” from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the so-called “Squad,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and 2020 presidential candidates is having a dangerous effect on ICE employees around the country.

Homan reacted on the show to new exclusive surveillance video obtained by Fox News of a man — armed with guns and explosives — attacking an ICE facility in Tacoma, Wash., last month. The suspect fired a rifle at the building, set a vehicle on fire and attempted to light propane tanks in an effort to burn the facility to the ground.

Homan said numerous lives could have been lost in the attack if not for the quick response of local police since the building houses more than 1,300 immigrants and about 100 ICE agents. The 69-year-old suspect had penned a manifesto declaring his support for Antifa.

ICE OFFICES, WORKERS HIT BY WAVE OF VIOLENCE AND THREATS: ‘WE KNOW WHERE ALL YOUR CHILDREN LIVE’

Shots were fired at an ICE office building in San Antonio early Tuesday in what the FBI called a “targeted attack,” according to the San Antonio Express-News. The outlet also reported there was also gunfire at another facility where an ICE contractor was located.

More from Fox News Flash

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) workers have faced a rapidly escalating series of threats, including protesters menacing their children and shots being fired at their offices, amid a rising tide of anti-ICE rhetoric from the left fueled by congressional Democrats, media voices and presidential hopefuls.

Footage published Tuesday by Breitbart News shows protesters in Florida from groups such as Never Again Action and Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County threatening workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE. One protester threatened the family of GEO Group’s former general counsel, John Bulfin.

TOM HOMAN: ICE, BORDER PATROL ARE TARGETS FOR LEFT-WING EXTREMISTS: WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE FROM DEMS?

Homan, who also wrote an op-ed for Fox News on Wednesday about the dangers of left-wing immigration rhetoric, said he was threatened when he was acting ICE director and he had to place armed security around his home to protect his family.

“I have to blame the Democratic hateful rhetoric that you hear from The Squad, AOC, the Speaker of the House, just about everybody running for president on the Democratic ticket wants to abolish ICE, you know, we’re Nazis, we’re racists, we run concentration camps and they wonder why people are emboldened to do these things,” he said, referring to the inflammatory statements against ICE since President Trump came into office.

Homan said the ICE agents and officials who are now being vilified by the left are the same men and women who served under President Barack Obama and are devoted to keeping communities safe. He said the left was quick to blame the El Paso mass shooting on Trump, yet they are silent when ICE buildings are attacked.

“It has to stop. … It’s a matter of time before one of our [ICE] employees or Border Patrol agents or families of one of our contractors is killed and I don’t hear anything from the left on that.”

Lil Nas X country-rap smash ‘Old Town Road’ divides CMA Awards voters

Though Lil Nas X has broken chart records and become a streaming juggernaut with his breakout country rap hit “Old Town Road” with Billy Ray Cyrus, the song faces an uphill challenge to get a nomination for a CMA award.

Ballots have gone out for nominations for the Country Music Association Awards, but some voters are struggling to decide how to recognize the musical phenomenon of the year, which has become the longest-running No. 1 song in the history of Billboard’s Hot 100.

Billboard decided “Old Town Road” wasn’t a country song and pulled it off country charts early on, but the song made enough of an impact anyway that it became eligible for a number of CMA categories this year, including single of the year and song of the year. CMA voters, which include musicians, producers, songwriters, touring professionals, country radio employees and others, vote in three ballots with the final nominations typically being announced in late August or early September. The award show will air Nov. 13.

LIL NAS X GAVE BFF BILLY RAY CYRUS A MASERATI

But there are already signs that the song isn’t getting wide support. It failed to get enough votes in the major song categories. The song only earned enough votes to be considered in the musical event category on the second ballot, which went out to voters Monday.

Lil Nas X visits the Country Hits Radio studios on July 04, 2019 in London. The rapper’s smash “Old Town Road” has CMA Awards voters divided on whether it’s “country” enough to qualify for a trophy.

JOHN RICH SPEAKS OUT ON LIL NAS X’S ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’ BILLY RAY CYRUS REMIX: ‘LET THE FANS DECIDE’

Shane McAnally, one of country’s biggest hit-makers who has written for Sam Hunt, Kacey Musgraves, Kenny Chesney and more, said he’s been impressed with the way the song has resonated with fans, but it never felt country to him.

“I just think country people do not see that as a country song,” said McAnally, who is co-president of Monument Records and one of three producers on NBC’s song competition series, “Songland.” ″Pop listeners think it’s a country song.”

The song’s genreless approach by mixing trap beats with a Nine Inch Nails sample and Western-themed lyrics appealed to millennials on TikTok but took Nashville’s music industry by surprise. While pop, rap and rock artists have gotten CMA nominations before, it’s a lot harder to earn a nomination without broad support among Nashville’s labels and country radio.

LIL NAS X SHARES AREA 51-THEMED ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’ MUSIC VIDEO

Nelly was nominated for musical event in 2013 with Florida Georgia Line for “Cruise,” but that was a country song with a rapper added to the remix. Nelly’s earlier collaboration with Tim McGraw on “Over and Over” in 2004, which was primarily promoted as a rap song, did not earn any nominations from the CMAs.

“I will be shocked if it makes the final ballot,” McAnally said of “Old Town Road.”

LIL NAS X BREAKS RECORD FOR MOST WEEKS AT NO. 1 WITH ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’

Still McAnally pointed out that non-country acts can still surprise at the CMA Awards, such as when John Denver, largely considered a pop-folk artist, won entertainer of the year in 1975, prompting Charlie Rich to set fire to the card with Denver’s name during the broadcast.

David Macias, president of Nashville-based entertainment company Thirty Tigers, which works with Americana artists like Jason Isbell and John Prine, said Billboard’s decision to not classify the song as country probably just reinforced CMA voters who weren’t inclined to vote for it anyway.

“I haven’t really decided what I am going to do where that’s concerned,” Macias said. “There’s no doubt it’s the musical cultural phenomenon of the year. I am on the fence on whether or not it sits in there. It deserves some recognition, and frankly no matter what happens on the voting part, it will be interesting to see what the CMA does.”

Hunter Kelly, a veteran country music journalist, was surprised that the song didn’t get enough early votes for single of the year, but he said its qualifications for the musical event category seemed undeniable.

MILEY CYRUS CONGRATULATES LIL NAS X ON NO. 1 HIT ‘OLD TOWN ROAD’

“If you talk about a musical event, it’s still 19 weeks at No. 1,” Kelly said. “It’s the all-time No. 1 on the Hot 100, so as a musical event, it totally deserves a nomination.”

During the voting period, labels or management agencies often engage in lobbying efforts that include advertisements in music industry publications. Representatives for Lil Nas X’s label, Columbia Records, did not respond to the AP for comment about the CMA voting.

LIL NAS X BLOCKS TAYLOR SWIFT FROM NO. 1

Kelly said that since “Old Town Road” didn’t originate in Nashville and Lil Nas X is not signed to a Nashville label, there are fewer voters emotionally or financially invested in seeing it nominated.

At the very least, “Old Town Road” has proved that lightning can strike twice in the same place with the re-introduction of Billy Ray Cyrus to a new generation, McAnally said. The mullet-wearing Cyrus was last nominated for a CMA in 1992 when he won single of the year for his own ubiquitous, danceable hit “Achy Breaky Heart.”

“That’s pretty crazy,” McAnally mused. “He wasn’t going away. You can’t discount that.”

Zac Brown loses bid to stop public access along Alaska estate

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_4847392322001_50aa5ca6-2082-4fca-9847-9880d21716ba Zac Brown loses bid to stop public access along Alaska estate fox-news/us/us-regions/west/alaska fox-news/entertainment/genres/country fox-news/entertainment/events/celebrity-homes fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc Associated Press article 5b62e809-57be-52be-aa90-1595ed1e0689

Country musician Zac Brown has lost a bid to limit snoopers on his private property in Alaska, the latest case where the desires of the wealthy or celebrity for privacy have been at odds with public access.

The lead singer for the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, southern rock group that bears his name had sought to remove easements allowing access along his property, but the bid was rejected by a planning commission on the Kenai Peninsula, south of Anchorage, KSRM-AM reported.

“I’m not interested in the public coming up to my home, people snooping, walking up to my windows,” Brown told the commission. “I’ve had to sell property for this reason.”

ZAC BROWN TELLS HATERS TO ‘F—K OFF’ AFTER CMT MUSIC AWARDS WIN

Brown’s log home in Homer overlooks scenic Kachemak Bay. Homer, with a population of about 5,600 is frequented by fishermen and free spirits and bills itself as the “Halibut Capital of the World.”

The commission rejected Brown’s request in a 5-4 vote Monday. He will need to submit his request for a state review if he wants to continue with his attempt to remove the easements.

Brown isn’t the first celebrity to find conflict with neighbors over property issues.

ZAC BROWN REGRETS USING ‘POOR JUDGMENT’ FOR ATTENDING PARTY WHERE STRIPPERS WERE ARRESTED FOR DRUGS

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in late 2016 filed lawsuits to identify owners of 14 parcels of land that were awarded to Hawaii commoners in the mid-19th century. The parcels are interspersed within a 700-acre (283-hectare) oceanfront estate Zuckerberg owns on Kauai Island. His lawsuits, later withdrawn amid a public uproar, aimed to help him find the owners so he could buy them out.

In California, there’s been a 14-year legal battle by U2 guitarist The Edge to build five large, eco-friendly homes on a ridgeline above Malibu. Neighbors and environmental groups fought the plan over concerns it would harm and environment and diminish the area’s natural beauty. Earlier this year California’s Supreme Court declined to consider The Edge’s last-ditch appeal to proceed with building.

ZAC BROWN BAND RETURNS TO COUNTRY ROOTS

In Alaska, Brown’s property is at the end of a secluded road. In addition to the lot where he built his house, Brown bought other lots to “protect the privacy of his family,” according to his petition.

Neighbor John Fowler owns property near Brown and is heading an effort to build a trail along the easement. He and others have sought to maintain the easements to retain public access.

Brown and nearby residents also submitted a proposal last summer to close off the last 2,000 feet (610 meters) of the road leading to the sprawling subdivision of four homes and make it a gated community. The application was later withdrawn, the Homer News reported.

ZAC BROWN BAND SURPRISES PARALYZED FAN

The road closure petition cited concerns for Brown and his family; an estimated 10 to 20 cars a day approached the end of the road.

“Due to his celebrity status, people are inundating this dead-end street with curiosity seekers, autograph hounds and some with criminal intent,” the petition stated. “Many are being sent here by instigators from outside the area.”

Kenai Peninsula Borough assembly member Willy Dunne had raised concerns about public access and creating a gated community. “It seems like an interesting situation where a celebrity comes in and buys land and wants to keep people out,” he told the Homer News.

He also said he was worried about setting a precedent, including with the Kilcher family of Homer, stars of the reality show “Alaska: The Last Frontier.”

“And what’s to stop the Kilchers from saying, ‘We want to block Kilcher Road for keeping fans out?’”

The Zac Brown band’s first widely distributed studio album, The Foundation, sold more than 5 million copies after its release in 2008. The lead song was the wildly popular, “Chicken Fried.”

Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers say accuser is trying to ‘conceal’ truth

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6040822580001_6040821964001-vs Harvey Weinstein’s lawyers say accuser is trying to ‘conceal’ truth New York Post fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/entertainment/events/scandal fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc Emily Saul article 99300b91-9c8f-5900-935f-06cf205974a9

Attorneys for disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein claim a Netflix producer who accused their client of rape is trying to make herself look like more of a victim — by randomly redacting court documents in their civil court case.

“Plaintiff’s proposed redactions do not contain any private, confidential, or otherwise sensitive information,” Weinstein’s lawyers wrote in response to proposed email redactions from lawyers for Alexandra Canosa, who claims in a Manhattan federal court lawsuit that she was repeatedly raped by the fallen film producer.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN ACCUSERS COULD GET LESS THAN $60G EACH IN SETTLEMENT

“Rather, they are nothing more than greetings, salutations, and expressions of affection. Again, Plaintiff and Defendant had a long time known consensual relationship. Plaintiff is attempting to use this Court’s Order to inhibit Mr. Weinstein from using any correspondence that does not support Plaintiff’s allegations.”

HARVEY WEINSTEIN’S LAWYER FILES MOTION TO DISMISS TWO CHARGES

JUDGE APPROVES WEINSTEIN REQUEST TO RECAST DEFENSE TEAM

The documents go on to accuse Canosa of attempting to conceal “the truth surrounding her long time relationship with Mr. Weinstein.”

Canosa sued Weinstein in May 2018, claiming he attacked and threatened her over a five-year period.

Her attorney Thomas Giuffra told The Post the two had a “business relationship” not a “long term consensual relationship” as Weinstein claimed.

“That is completely false and utter nonsense and is part and parcel of Mr. Weinstein and his lawyer’s campaigns to discredit women who he abused for many many years, with the knowledge of his company and the Hollywood film industry,” Giuffra said of the filing.

Philadelphia police pelted with objects, taunted during harrowing shootout, standoff: reports

Onlookers were seen taunting and throwing things at Philadelphia police Wednesday night amid a wild shootout and subsequent standoff that saw six cops wounded, and video posted online shows one woman shoving a police officer making his way to the scene.

Philadelphia’s KYW-TV reporter Alexandria Hoff described on Twitter Wednesday night how a crowd of people bordering the blocked off active shooter scene allegedly harassed officers.

“I mentioned this at 10 and since I was harassed during that live shot, I’ll mention it here, too,” Hoff said on Twitter. “A major moment of disappointment this evening was watching a crowd of people taunt police officers, laughing and yelling at them in the midst of the gunfire.”

PHILADELPHIA STANDOFF: POLICE DISPATCH AUDIO REVEALS TENSE MOMENTS DURING HOURS-LONG ORDEAL

“I should add — 98% of people here on scene were respectful and concerned. That moment was just such a startling thing to see in the middle of something so chaotic,” she added in a separate tweet.

In another video posted by Breaking911, one woman can be seen shoving an officer from behind as he passes through the crowd. Others in the crowd yell and throw objects at police as they enter the blocked off area amid the active standoff scene.

Several officers with the Narcotics Strike Force were serving a warrant at the multifamily home — in connection with what may have been a drug-related offense — when things “went awry almost immediately,” and the shooter opened fire, Police Commissioner Richard Ross Jr. said.

The dramatic shootout in Philadelphia stretched on for more than eight hours as six officers were shot. Two officers were trapped on the second floor of the building as the gunman shot through the first-floor ceiling and outside at responding law enforcement.

After withstanding more than five hours of gunfire, SWAT officers managed to get the two officers and three hostages out of the residence safely. The gunman eventually surrendered just after midnight Thursday, exiting the residence with his hands in the air and with a police light shining on him, surrounded by a cloud of tear gas.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

California man, 18, turns self in after shooting death of 13-year-old sister

An 18-year-old suspect accused of fatally shooting his 13-year-old sister reportedly turned himself in to Southern California authorities Wednesday afternoon.

Eddie Alvirez allegedly shot his sister with a handgun Tuesday in the bedroom they shared with another sister at the family’s home in Lancaster, about 72 miles north of Los Angeles, according to The Los Angeles Times. At least one relative claims the death was an accident.

UEFA postpones Champions League talks as clubs, leagues row

Changes to the Champions League are unlikely to be decided this year after UEFA on Thursday called off joint talks with the heads of European clubs and leagues who have spent months arguing over potential radical overhaul of the format of European competitions.

European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli, who has been criticized for championing a largely closed Champions League, and European Leagues president Lars-Christer Olsson were due to jointly meet UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin on Sept. 11.

“I have decided to postpone the meeting,” Ceferin wrote to Agnelli and Olsson in a letter obtained by The Associated Press. “I will send a new invitation as soon as I think that we are ready for a meaningful discussion.”

The letter was sent a day before the ECA executive board, led by the Juventus chairman Agnelli, meets in private in Liverpool to discuss their vision for an overhaul of continent-wide club competitions from 2024. The third competition — provisionally called Europa League Two — is already due to launch in 2021.

“We are currently in the process of gathering feedback from our national associations,” Ceferin wrote, “and I feel — more generally — that a new discussion now would be premature as we are analyzing feedback and proposals coming from different parties.”

The European Leagues group has fiercely opposed Agnelli’s core idea of restricting access to the Champions League and Europa League, as have dozens of teams from across the continent who are members of the ECA.

A proposal presented earlier this year by UEFA would guarantee 24 of 32 Champions League group teams return the following season, introducing significant promotion and relegation with the Europa League. Leagues fear end-of-season intrigue will be reduced in their competitions, with finishing positions currently determining qualification for Europe.

“As you know very well, UEFA deliberately kicked off the review process for the 2024/27 competition cycle much ahead of our regular schedule and we are therefore in no hurry,” Ceferin told Agnelli and Olsson. “We do not, in any case, expect to make a decision this year.”

The ECA has been calling for eight-team groups in the Champions League instead of the current four. That would guarantee clubs more revenue from UEFA for playing 14 games before the knockout rounds instead of the current six.

That would benefit the illustrious clubs who want to play each other more often in Europe, appearing to be dissatisfied with a lack of competition at home. Juventus has won eight straight Italian titles, Bayern Munich has won the last seven in Germany, and Paris Saint-Germain has won six of seven in France.

The English Premier League is the leading force resisting dramatic changes to the Champions League and claims to have the backing from all of its teams. That includes Manchester United, whose executive vice chairman Ed Woodward is an ECA executive board member.

Jeter noncommittal on Mattingly’s future as manager

His club seemingly headed to a second consecutive last-place finish in the NL East, Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter isn’t ready to disclose whether manager Don Mattingly will return next season.

“There hasn’t been a decision yet,” Jeter said before Miami hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night. “To be honest with you, we’ve been so focused on the trade deadline and see what we could do with it.”

“At the end of every year, we sit down and evaluate all members of the organization, whether it’s the manager, coaches, player development, scouting, front office,” he said.

Mattingly is in the final year of a four-year contract. The former Dodgers manager was hired by ex-owner Jeffrey Loria prior to the 2016 season.

The Marlins began the day with a 44-74 record that was the worst in the National League.

Jeter, the public face of the ownership group that purchased the club from Loria before the 2017 season, credited Mattingly for his leadership during the team’s rebuild. Miami’s new ownership traded former MVP Giancarlo Stanton and All-Stars Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna and J.T. Realmuto for prospects.

“To be fair to Donnie, it’s something we need to talk about sooner rather than later,” Jeter said. “There are a lot of things that go into it. Donnie has done a good job.”

Mattingly said he would like to return.

“I’d love to be back, especially if they want me back,” Mattingly said. “I talked about it from the very beginning — I’m comfortable with whatever happens, whatever way it goes.”

“I came here to hopefully turn this thing around, get this going in the right direction. Obviously, there was a little bit of a bump in the road in the middle with the ownership change and obviously with a different direction,” he said.

Mattingly and Jeter were teammates with the New York Yankees in 1995 — it was Mattingly’s last season and Jeter’s first in the majors.
