The Kevin Pietersen camp have scored a comprehensive win in the PR battle with the England and Wales Cricket Board without calling on any outside assistance. It has been assumed that the way KP outplayed the ECB's army of media personnel at every turn was because his agents, Mission Sports Management, had expert help guiding their strategy. But agent Adam Wheatley, co-founder of the company with Sir Ian Botham, insists that everything has been done in-house since the brief involvement of former Sun editor David Yelland during KP's supposed reintegration into the England team in 2012.... It does help on social media that KP has a Twitter following of nearly 2. 5million. Wheatley, once on the same Grimsby Town board as new ECB chairman Colin Graves, added: 'Colin's words about KP's future England chances have been interpreted in different ways but we believe there's a clean slate. Aggers was rather more annoyed a decade ago when Michael Vaughan admitted he didn't realise Agnew had played Test cricket. Tehsin Nayani, who acted as a PR spokesman for the Glazer family, has chosen the upcoming 10th anniversary of their Manchester United takeover to write a book about his six seasons as the Glazer Gatekeeper.
The Wisconsin-based band, born at UW-Stevens Point, is a mash-up of Western and Midwestern sensibilities, old-time string music with a new dash of high-energy playfulness and tinkering with tradition. Collin (Mettelka, fiddle player) had become interested in old-time music later in high school, and when he met Russell (Pedersen, banjo), he kind of coaxed Russell into playing some old-timey music on his banjo. That was really traditional old-style music with the combination of fiddle and banjo. Then our harmonica player Dave (Lynch) was really influenced by blues and some Cajun music. It started off with those three and then Sam (Odin, bass) and myself came into the band and brought an interest in The Grateful Dead and some older jam music. Sam, in particular, was really interested in jazz. To this day, he sounds less like a bluegrass bass player and more doing runs that you'd hear from somebody like Miles Davis and other jazz greats. So our music kind of came from a lot of different angles, and we were all interested in what each other was up to – being friends – and all really willing to let the music go where it wanted to go with all the different things brought to the table.
My parents meet on a blind date in 1976. Richard with his leather cowboy hat and hand-painted jean jacket, Meridy with her purple turban and kohled eyes. On their third date, he takes her to an Italian restaurant in the Castro, the kind of place where “That’s Amore” plays on an infinite loop. “There’s something important I have to tell you,” Rich says. Most likely, Meridy doesn’t believe him. A few weeks later, he looks into her eyes after lovemaking and says, “There. ” So she is. Rich names their unborn son Galen, after the ancient Greek physician. Meridy plays along, not questioning his intuitions. But during her pregnancy, she reads the science fiction novel Dune , by Frank Herbert, and secretly chooses the feminine name Alia. The birth announcements are discarded and new ones printed with the name Alia. Meridy becomes Mom, a name she will always treasure. Richard becomes Dad, but not for long. When I am 4, Dad goes on a Native American-inspired vision quest in a terrible place called Death Valley. It feels like he’s gone forever. “On the seventh night of my quest the temperature dropped,” he says.
