年の暮れに演奏される「第九」の魅力

年末になると、毎年決まってベートーベンの「交響曲第9番」が演奏されます。
場所によっては、この第九の演奏を聴くだけでなく、市民が合唱に参加できるイベントが開催され、大いに賑わいを見せるところもあります。
実際、年々参加者も増える傾向にあり、第九の演奏日までに熱心に合唱の練習が繰り替えされています。
また、参加者の声からは、一度この第九の合唱に参加すると、止められなくなるという声をよく聞きます。
第九には、人を引き付ける不思議な力があるのでしょうか。
もともと、第九が年末に演奏されるようになったのは、日本独特の文化です。
この文化が形成された背景には、日本のあるオーケストラ(管弦楽団)が、きっかけでした。
このオーケストラは、演奏会を開いてもなかなか、観客数が満員になる事がなく、経営が赤字状態になっていた時代がありました。
この頃、ちょうど年末の演奏会で、たまたまベートーベンの第九番の交響曲「合唱付き」の全曲演奏を始めて試みたところ、非常に聴衆にうけ、それ以降、第九は日本の人々に広く知られるようになった、と言われています。
一度第九を聞くと、誰もが圧倒的な力量感と、荘厳な旋律による合唱に魅了される事でしょう。
第九演奏会における合唱に参加する人々も、聴くだけでは満足できず、自ら唄ってみるというスタンスに変化していったケースが圧倒的に多い特徴があります。
そういった点で、第九は時代と共に人々に愛され、人々が育んできた面も大きく、またこのような背景こそが、人の心を掴んで放さない、第九の魅力に発展していったとも言えます。

Josh McDaniels explains why he reversed decision on Colts job to stay with Patriots

There’s not much love lost for Josh McDaniels in Indianapolis after he backed out of the Colts head coach job to stay on as the Patriots offensive coordinator earlier this offseason.
Youth Abraham Almonte Replica Cream Majestic Jersey: MLB Cleveland Indians #35 Alternate Cool Base
But as McDaniels explained Monday, his decision wasn’t about the Colts organization 鈥?it was about what he thought was best for his family and his future.
Authentic Kids Boomer Esiason Jersey
Indianapolis did a tremendous job. They have a tremendous organization and I was lucky to be considered and I just think once I found out [what my future in New England was], I made the right decision for me and my family at this time, McDaniels said (via The Boston Globe).

Look, I’m privileged to have the opportunity to do that and when they kind of crystallized that 鈥?’Hey, here’s what we see going forward and here’s how we would like you to fit into it’ 鈥?it gave me a reason to stop and say, ‘All right, what’s the best decision for me?’ And certainly it was difficult. But I made the decision on my own, nobody pushed me into it.

Still only 41, McDaniels may likely get another chance to be an NFL head coach. However, any GM outside of New England may balk at his word.

As the No. 5 starter, Skoglund has been skipped because of off days and three snow-day postponements.

Skoglund went 1-2 with a 9.50 ERA in five starts and two relief appearances last season. He pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings on May 30 versus the Detroit Tigers to win his big league debut 1-0 against Justin Verlander. In his final 11 2/3 innings, he allowed 19 earned runs.

Skoglund went 1-0 with a 3.38 ERA in four spring training appearances, striking out 11 and walking none in 10 2/3 innings, permitting four earned runs.

I see a pretty big difference in him, Royals manager Ned Yost said of Skoglund’s confidence level. Last year this was all new and big and quick for him up here. In spring training, you could tell the game has slowed down, that he’s got a lot Marcell Ozuna Youth jersey more confidence in his ability. I’m hoping for the best for him tomorrow with the weather the way that it is.

Youth Nick Holden Jersey But he hasn’t pitched in two and a half weeks (actually more than three). It’s tough to stay sharp until you can get into a regular routine. We start his routine tomorrow, which will be good.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett received a dreaded vote of confidence from owner Jerry Jones after last year’s 9-7 campaign.

I certainly know a lot about Jason Garrett. Because of that, I can very quickly and candidly say that he’s not, his job is not an issue here at all, Jones said in December, per the Associated Press (via USA Today).
Women's Reebok New York Islanders #12 Josh Bailey Premier Black Third NHL Jersey
Limited Mens Luke Glendening Jersey A 22-10 record over two seasons is usually good enough to warrant an extension. Being the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys demands a little more because of Jones’ overbearing presence.

Sanchez’ post-game comment on Friday night: It just happened on that one pitch. That’s when I felt the cramp. The doctor checked me and he told me it was a cramp. I’ve just got to wait and see how I feel. This is the first time it happened to me.

Boone’s take on Saturday morning: I saw Gary today. He was already in the whirlpool. We think he’s doing pretty well. He’s walking normally. He’s tired from (Friday) night obviously. Maybe it was just cramping. Obviously, he’s off (Saturday), but we’re hoping we avoided something. When I first looked out there (Friday) and he’s down, you obviously have a lot of concern. At this point, it appears to be minor.

We all make mistakes, but at least hope to be in the ballpark–literally or figuratively.

That mantra didn’t quite work out for The Denver Post ‘s guide to Coors Field for Colorado Rockies fans. While the written content and guide to the park was likely excellent, the photo used on the lead of The Denver Post ‘s sports section was, well, not quite on point.

Instead of a photo of Coors Field, the paper ran a photo of Citizens Bank Park–as in the home of the Philadelphia Phillies.

How does a mix-up like that happen? Any guess is a good one, but here’s an excuse that can be ruled out pretty quickly: Colorado hasn’t faced off early in this season with the Phillies or at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, so the idea of a recent photo accidentally working its way in doesn’t feel applicabile.

As you can imagine, Twitter had a field day reacting to the mistake.

It looks a lot like the organization insisting that star quarterback Andrew Luck is fine as days turns into weeks turn into months.

Earl Bennett Authentic Jersey
That was the story in 2017, as shoulder surgery ended up sidelining Luck for the entire season.
Youth Dave Winfield Authentic Green Majestic Jersey: MLB San Diego Padres #31 Salute to Service
It’s been well over a year since Luck had surgery on his right shoulder, and he still hasn’t thrown a football since. However, Colts general manager Chris Ballard continued to sound optimistic about Luck’s availability for offseason workouts during a recent appearance on The Grady and Big Joe Show on 1070 The Fan, according to Matt Danely of Stampede Blue.

He’s still on the team because he’s an incredibly valuable member of the Philadelphia Eagles, Eagles de facto GM Howie Roseman said at the annual NFL meetings on Monday afternoon. When you talk about that position and what’s gone on, you’ve seen it in the free-agent market, Theoren Fleury Jersey you’ve seen it in the trade market. We’re in the business of making sure we get the right value for the player. What our value is for a player is going to stick.
Game Youth Gary Roberts Jersey
Earlier this week, head coach Doug Pederson told NFL Network that Wentz is ahead of schedule in his rehab. Roseman, without specifically talking about the injury, said he agrees with the head coach.

If that’s true, Foles becomes an expensive insurance policy for the 2018 season; he has a cap hit of $7.6 million. But with a starting quarterback coming off a serious knee injury, it’s understandable why the Eagles want to be blown away if they’re going to trade Foles. It’s not going to get done for a middle-of-the-road draft pick or two.

Listen, those guys have bats, Jansen said. They compete, too. Nobody wants to get beat. Nobody wants to blow saves. Nobody wants to lose games, but the situation of the game, it happens. What can I do I’ve just got to bounce back tomorrow and help the Dodgers win.

Yasiel Puig made two fine defensive plays for the Dodgers in the 14th, catching Goldschmidt’s drive at the right-field fence and then throwing out Ketel Marte trying to advance to second on a deep flyout by Pollock.

Marinovich, 48, said last year that he’s been sober since a 2016 arrest, when he was found naked in a backyard holding a brown bag containing marijuana and methamphetamine. He was cited for trespassing, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

He had to stay out of legal trouble for 36 months to avoid jail time.

Leonard’s report, which cited multiple NFL sources, hit the internet before the Los Angeles Rams handed a one-year, $14 million deal to defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

The Raiders were 0-8 and looking for a new stadium deal. McCallum was invited to attend the game as part of the NFL’s Salute to Service Weekend, recognizing Veterans Day. He was in charge of lighting the ceremonial eternal flame honoring late Raiders owner Al Davis. Afterward, on the field, he made his case for Las Vegas to Mark Davis.

I know you’re trying to move out of Oakland and are working on the deal to L.A., McCallum said to Davis, but have you ever thought about coming to Las Vegas

According to McCallum, Davis said that he had considered it and even discussed it informally with Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman, who suggested a potential stadium site out by the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, roughly 12 miles north of downtown. (It was revealed later that Davis had purchased the website domain for LasVegasRaiders.com in 1998).

McCallum didn’t like the speedway location and offered an alternative.

You need to come down to Las Vegas and meet with UNLV, he told Davis. I think it would be a great partnership there, and I think there’s money here to help get this done.

Apparently one network feels the reduced amount of breaks worked last season and will continue to use them. At the annual NFL owners meeting, CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said that he was happy with the changes to the game presentation that took effect last season. He added that there won’t be any more major changes coming to the way we watch NFL games on TV in 2018.

Will anyone catch the Astros Can the Dodgers return to the World Series A new MLB season is here.

Taylor’s ascension is more than the story of a player finding himself mid-career. It reflects a key trait about the way the Dodgers operate. It’s not just about financial resources. It’s not just about paying equal attention to the traditional areas of scouting and minor league development. It’s also about finding diamonds in the rough and having a coaching staff that helps second-chance veterans become better versions of themselves.

Part of having depth is also creating opportunity, Zaidi said. We can talk about depth, but no player wants to view themselves as depth. Every player believes in his ability to be a big leaguer and believes he has a chance to impact the team, given that chance.patriots_104

NFL Competition Committee Plans to Alter Catch-Rule Language, Replay Process

NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent said Tuesday that the league is closing in on clarifying its controversial catch rule.
Men's Anaheim Ducks #9 Paul Kariya Reebok Orange Third Premier NHL Jersey
According to Mark Maske of theWashington Post, Vincent said the NFL plans to eliminate two factors that can cause incompletions.

Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we’ll reverse that, he said. Going to the ground, it looks like that’s going to be eliminated. And we’ll go back to the old replay standard of reverse the call on the field only when it’s indisputable.

Authentic Kids Paul Goldschmidt Jersey Last season, Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Jesse James appeared to catch the go-ahead touchdown on 1st-and-goal with 28 seconds remaining in a Week 15 game against the New England Patriots.

James reached the ball over the goal line, but it moved when it hit the ground, which caused the replay official to overturn it.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger then threw an interception two plays later, and the Pats won to essentially clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Elite Womens Delano Hill Jersey The James play caused fans to renew their demands for a more clearly defined catch rule, and it looks like they’ll get that if the team owners approve the proposal. The annual meeting starts Sunday.

So, basically, the Jets have paid $500,000 now in exchange for the ability to evaluate Bridgewater throughout the offseason program, training camp, and the preseason before deciding whether to keep him on the active roster when the regular season begins, and the $5 million becomes at that point as a practical matter fully guaranteed.

The Authentic Minnesota Vikings Jersey chance that Bridgewater won’t see his $5 million base salary increases if the Jets pick a quarterback with the third overall choice in round one. If that’s what the Jets do, Bridgewater could take full advantage of his chance to show via the preseason that he can still ; if he gets cut after showing that he can still perform, someone else will surely be interested in giving him another chance.

Alternatively, Bridgewater could clamor to be cut or traded if/when the Jets pick a quarterback with pick No. 3. That would be a delicate P.R. strategy, but few would fault Bridgewater for wanting out in light of the arrival of a rookie arrival that could result in Bridgewater being dumped onto the market days before the regular season begins.

As of right now, I would put Joe Dahl firmly in the mix for that job, along with free-agent addition Kenny Wiggins. But as mentioned, it would be ideal to add a rookie in the first four rounds to round out the competition.
Women's Greg Maddux Replica White Majestic Jersey: MLB Atlanta Braves #31 Cool Base Fashion
Ndamukong Suh is signing with the Los Angeles Rams on a one-year, $14 million deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday.

Suh made his decision after visiting with the Saints and Titans last week before visiting L.A. on Tuesday. He initially planned to visit the Raiders on Wednesday before deciding to skip the scheduled meetup. Despite not hosting Suh on a visit, the Jets emerged as a serious contender for his services late in the week, but rescinded their offer on Sunday.

John Tavares Jersey The former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle, who was released by the team at the start of free agency last week, tallied 15.5 sacks and 181 combined tackles in his time in Miami, despite eating up double teams constantly. Since 2010, he ranks second among NFL DTs in sacks (51.5), first in QB hits (147), second in total pressures (381.5) and first in tackles for loss (103).

But could this be the year they waver on their commitment, and draft a first-round quarterback to replace Flacco

I intend to ask Quinn why the Dylan Bundy Womens Jersey team didn’t make a play for Blount the past two years when we talk to the GM at the league meetings next week. It’s not fair to pin it on Jim Caldwell, without more information. The former coach hadn’t shied聽away from strong personalities or checkered backgrounds, in the past.

I don’t know if he’d be the right fit for whatever the Lions’ new blocking scheme will look like, but I’m partial to mauling guards. Will Hernandez is a monster who plays with a mean streak. That gets my vote.

A month later, Borges has yet to write for the paper since. So what happened to that further review Has his suspension turned into a termination, or will he be back at the Herald PFT put that question to Herald sports editor Sean Leahy, who answered, There’s no update beyond what the company said last month.

Report: Andrew Norwell to choose among 49ers, Colts, Giants

The Giants remain confident they will land Boston Bruins Jersey All-Pro guard Andrew Norwell, but they will have to beat out the 49ers and Colts, Art Stapleton of NorthJersey.com reports.

Those are Norwell’s three finalists, via Stapleton.

Giants General Manager Dave Gettleman, who signed Norwell as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State four years ago, was the expected front-runner for Norwell. But it might take making Norwell the highest-paid guard in football to land him.

All the work we need to be doing is off the field and in the communities, Patriots safety Devin McCourty, who has emerged as one of the Coalition鈥檚 visible leaders, told USA TODAY Sports.

That was a vehicle that we used to draw attention, McCourty said of the player demonstrations. But doing some type of protest on the field every week is not going to stop an unarmed black kid from getting killed, or fix a criminal justice system in another state.

Keenum was in Houston on Monday night, participating in the First Shot for charity before the Rockets-Spurs game. He briefly spoke to reporters about becoming a free agent yet again.

It feels really good, Keenum said, via Mark Berman of Houston’s FOX 26. It’s a tough league. When you get opportunities like this, you’ve got to take advantage of them, so we’re going to take advantage of it.

Keenum ed for the Rams in St. Louis in 2015, the Rams in Los Angeles in 2016 and the Vikings last season. The former University of Houston star also has spent time with the Texans.

The future of Odell Beckham Jr. with the New York Giants is getting more and more uncertain. The talented wideout is reportedly willing to hold out if he doesn鈥檛 get a contract extension this offseason, while Giants owner John Mara has not ruled out trading the superstar wideout.

Baker Mayfield after Pro Day: I’ve put myself in good spot to be considered draft’s best QB

Baker Mayfield didn’t hurt himself at Oklahoma’s Pro Day on Wednesday, though throwing against air, most quarterback prospects pass that test with flying colors.

Friday Five: The biggest NFL Draft quarterback busts of the BCS era More The NFL Draft is in a month, and as has been the case in recent years, quarterbacks are the hot commodities. In my most recent mock draft here at CBS Sports, I have three teams selecting QBs in the top five, and it’s entirely possible we could see four taken in the first five picks when the dust settles. Now more than ever, quarterback has become the “must have” in the NFL. Nevermind the fact that we just saw the Eagles lose their franchise QB to a torn ACL only to go on to win a Super Bowl with a third-round pick out of Arizona named Nick Foles; the prevailing theory is that to compete for Super Bowls, you must have a franchise QB.

Running back C.J. Anderson锟斤拷s time in Denver may be up. But only if someone else will trade for him.
Gale Sayers Women's Elite White Jersey: Nike NFL Chicago Bears Vapor Untouchable Road #40
Authentic Mens Davis Webb Jersey Mike Klis of 9News.com in Denver reports that the Broncos don’t intend to release Anderson, but that they will listen to trade offers for him.

The Broncos possibly expect an offer from the Dolphins. Two years ago, Miami signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million offer sheet. The Broncos matched it.

But what there is no maybe about is that he has been the backup behind a very average quarterback for several years.

Sam Bradford (30)锟斤拷Intends to sign with Cardinals (one year, $20 million) The most talented QB in free agency, but unfortunately the durability concerns have become overwhelming.

Jay Cutler (34), Dolphins If he wasn锟斤拷t great in an Adam Gase scheme that he锟斤拷d thrived in before, what makes you think he锟斤拷d thrive somewhere else?

Martin was at one point one of the more productive backs in the league, but injuries and a suspension made it easier for the Bucs to part ways.

Limited Kasey Redfern Jersey He’s 29 years old and two Colt McCoy Jersey years removed from being at his best, but the Raiders are smart to look at options if they want to keep Lynch around (at some price, even if it’s not the $6 million he’s due now).

It’s also interesting in that it gives the clear impression the Raiders are looking at other backs, and having leverage is always a handy thing.

According to NBC in Philadelphia, the Eagles weren’t aware of the pending legal matter when they traded for Bennett.

The incident in Houston was one of two times that Bennett had a brush with the law in 2017.

The 32-year-old was also involved in an incident in Las Vegas in August.

Rubin sold an e-commerce business to eBay for $2.4 billion in 2011 while maintaining control of Fanatics, which operates the online merchandising for the NFL, other major sports leagues and teams in the United States. He owns pieces of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils that he would have to sell if chosen as the winning bidder for the Panthers.

David Tepper and Ben Navarro have been identified as other possible bidders for the team. The league could vote on approving a new owner at May’s league meetings if things progress as hoped in the coming weeks.

After starting free agency with about $21 million in cap space , the Giants signed running back Jonathan Stewart, left tackle Nate Solder, left guard Patrick Omameh, outside linebacker Kareem Martin and cornerbacks Teddy Williams and Curtis Riley during the first week of free agency.

All of those contracts, including Solder’s as the highest-paid offensive lineman in the NFL , have been figured into the NFLPA report.
