Betty Buckley Broadway Diva

Betty Buckley Broadway Diva - Betty Buckley, Broadway diva, television star, and Tony Award-winning actress put on a spectacular concert last week at The Carolina Theatre in Durham. Buckley's voice was in top-notch form and she commanded the stage with confidence and ease. Watching this remarkable artist perform was an unforgettable treat. Betty Buckley has true star quality and it shone brightly on stage in Durham last week.

Buckley took her audience on a personal journey, sharing stories and songs from her career with great honesty and emotion. Her concert, titled Betty Buckley: Broadway by Request, even includes some audience participation. Buckley often mentioned the names of audience members from stage and even brought one lucky, and somewhat terrified, man on stage. Ms. Buckley seems to truly appreciate and love her fans, and she makes it clear that she's happy to be sharing a personal and revealing evening with friends.

The evening began with a true diva classic from Sunset Boulevard "As If We Never Said Goodbye" followed by a song from 1776 in which she made her Broadway debut, "He Plays the Violin." Ms. Buckley then moved to more contemporary fair with a song from Avenue Q, "There's a Fine, Fine Line." This song may have been one of the most touching, and unexpected, of the evening. While there were no puppets on stage with Ms. Buckley, she did give a nod to the irreverence of the show with some simple and funny gestures. Ms. Buckley then moved back to more traditional songs including: "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered" from Pal Joey, "Hey, There (You with the Stars in Your Eyes)" from The Pajama Game, "You've Got Possibilities, from It's a Bird...It's a Plane...It's Superman, and two songs from The King and I, "We Kissed in a Shadow" and "I Have Dreamed".

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
