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。

Baker Mayfield believes he’s the man to resurrect Browns

Baker Mayfield never lacked confidence at Oklahoma, and that hasn’t changed as he begins his NFL journey.
Women's Adidas Vegas Golden Knights #77 Brad Hunt Authentic Gray Home NHL Jersey
Speaking at the NFL Scouting Combine, Mayfield fielded questions about potential destinations, and the Browns came up as a possible suitor. While some players might balk at heading to Cleveland, where quarterbacks have struggled for more than a decade, Mayfield chose to look at the positive side.

Allen said he consulted with Wentz before deciding to turn pro.

He explained to me that when you’re stepping into (an NFL) locker room with 30-year-old guys, they’ve got kids, they’ve got families, said Allen, who turns 22 in May. They’re looking at you to lead their franchise and come in and win games.
Elite Mens Taylor Decker Jersey
If you’re not ready for that, it’s going to eat you mentally and you might be out of the league in three Authentic Austin Czarnik Jersey to four years. That’s something I don’t want to experience.

Neither do the teams that are putting Allen under a microscope trying to forecast exactly what the future will hold.

Once again, much of Indy’s work involves getting more support for quarterback with the hopeful return of Andrew Luck. But moving on from coach Chuck Pagano also requires the Colts to undergo more defensive overhaul as the team goes from a 3-4 to a 4-3 with Tampa 2 zone coverage concepts.

Pats coach Bill Belichick is a football lifer and a historian par excellence, but he’s also a man who plays the percentages and follows trends, as these articles spell out. (See: FOURTH-AND-2 INSIDE HIS OWN 30!) It can’t be an accident he keeps finding offensive skill players who click with Tom Brady (and not just because it’s Tom Brady.)
Elite Mens Josh Leivo Jersey
If Gruden is saying nice things about the franchise that crushed his Super Bowl dreams 16 years ago and has stayed on top in the intervening years, why wouldn’t he try to join ’em while he also tries to beat ’em?

Or is he really committed to leading his team down a 20-year-old path, one that would seem to lead to medocrity or worse?

He added it wouldn’t matter if they did, because he said he wouldn’t entertain any sort of position switch.

Game Kids Jarrett Allen Jersey That’s crazy,” Jackson said with a smile. I thought I did a good job at quarterback. But hey, they say what they want to say, I’m here now, I’m at the combine, I’m happy to be here, now I just have to show off my ability.”
Authentic Reebok Men's Jay Bouwmeester Navy Blue Third Jersey - NHL #19 St. Louis Blues
This is a deep Super Bowl roster, so fans shouldn’t be let down if there isn’t a lot of movement. The Eagles are projected to be about $9 million over the cap, so the champs certainly aren’t in a position to go splash-crazy — and they don’t need to. But the term stand pat is not in executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman’s vocabulary. First up, the front office needs to decide what to do with pending free agents such as linebacker Nigel Bradham, cornerback Patrick Robinson and running backs LeGarrette Blount and Darren Sproles. Once that business is tended to, look for the Eagles to find creative ways to tweak their roster. They might not be aggressive on Day 1 when the big-money signings go down, but will likely be heard from before long. — Tim McManus

Luck’s only practice time since Week 17 of the 2016 season was on a limited basis in October, before the team gave him a cortisone shot and shut him down due to soreness in the shoulder. He spent about six weeks in the Netherlands getting rehab on his shoulder and is currently in California working with throwing experts. Luck has used weight Joey Bosa Youth jersey balls to work on regaining strength in his shoulder.

The Colts, despite Luck’s long layoff, continue to believe he will be back for the 2018 season.

Do I have any doubt that he’s going to be ready? No, I don’t, Ballard said.

Hall was already having a monster season that put his name back in the mix with the elite of the elite in the NHL. Since Jan. 1, he’s found yet anther level to his game. After turning in a tidy 1.0 points per game through the first 36 games of the season, Hall has been scoring at a clip of 1.44 points per game in 18 games since the calendar flipped to 2018. He’s currently pulling rookie Nico Hischier and Kyle Palmieri into next-level status for fantasy managers and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, riding an 18-game point streak.

Size- and arm strength-wise, the top-rated quarterbacks who fit Elway’s vision would seem to be Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen or Josh Allen.

Even so, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell did not succumb to both internal and external pressure and alter how teams handle the pregame anthem. Goodell also helped spearhead the creation of an NFL social justice initiative with a $90 million pledge over the next seven years for various programs after meetings with involved players.

“He thinks it’s a right of the players for those guys to either stand or kneel or whatever,” Winston said. “That’s the country we live in. That’s what he’s made very clear.

“While I know some of the owners and even the commissioner have said they don’t like it, that’s what (the NFL’s) stance has been. I haven’t heard anything different than that.”

And Lue, finally, after dancing around the question all season prior to the trade deadline, could give a direct answer when asked about the identity of his team.

“It starts with our defense,” Lue said. “That’s what we’ve got to be: turn our defense into offense. If we’re guarding the basketball, we’re getting stops, getting turnovers, we can really get out and run because we have four guys on the floor at all times that can make a play.”

Giving a rookie QB time to develop into a true franchise quarterback would require patience, but I think that’s the approach Elway will take while also keeping Lynch in the mix. Lynch is still on his rookie deal, so he’s a low-cost option.

And if it doesn’t work out for Denver to move up to one of the top two draft spots due to the high cost established by the Jared Goff and Carson Wentz deals, Elway will have second and third choices he also covets as a potential franchise QBs. Elway in that case would either trade up a couple spots to get his QB or hope the player falls to the No. 5 overall pick.

All are in the range of 6-4 to 6-5. Baker Mayfield at 6-1 is an appealing playmaker but not in the big QB mold Elway seemingly prefers.bears_136

We read the news just like everyone else, Smith said, via NJ.com. You see Donald Trump tweet something … We have those conversations in the locker room, just like everyone else does in the workplace. We’re very informed about what goes on, and we’re trying to continue to educate ourselves. It’s pretty special to have a group like that of folks that aren’t just socially conscious, but folks who genuinely care about people and care about learning more.

Smith previously won the Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens five years ago and visited the White House to celebrate.

The defensive end was one of many Patriots players not to visit last year and he doesn’t plan on visiting now either.

No, I’m not going to the White House. Are you kidding me? Long said on the Pardon My Take podcast last Sunday.

Long donated his entire 2017 salary to charity and has been an advocate for education equality. Last year, he received criticism for choosing not to visit Washington, D.C., but fired back at those who disapproved.

Mark Cuban says it would be best for 18-40 Mavs to keep losing

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban calls tanking brutal but acknowledged that he told his team that it would be best to lose for the rest of the 2017-18 season.

The trade deadline created a lot of movement in the 2018 NBA draft. Let’s look at Abraham Almonte Jersey where the top prospects — Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Deandre Ayton, Mohamed Bamba and Marvin Bagley III — might land.
Chandler Jones Authentic Jersey
This season, the Mavericks (18-40) have the third-worst record in the NBA entering Tuesday but are among a logjam of seven teams with fewer than 20 wins. The team with the worst record will have a 25 percent chance of making the No. 1 pick in June’s draft.

Ryan Ramczyk Kids Jersey Starting with the 2019 draft, the three teams with the worst records will share a 14 percent chance of getting the No. 1 overall pick, lessening the incentive to lose at the end of the season.

One shift after scoring his 28th goal of the season Thursday night in a 4-3 victory over the New York Islanders, Matthews left the game following a hit in which he was sandwiched between defenseman Adam Pelech and forward Cal Clutterbuck.

Matthews has 28 goals and 22 points in 53 games this season. His departure from the lineup will result in a shifting of lines.

William Nylander will move from the wing to center to fill Matthews’ spot. Connor Brown will be elevated to play on the right wing to fill Nylander’s spot on the team’s top line.

Matthews missed 10 games this season due to injury. On Nov. 8, he missed four games with an upper-body ailment. On Dec. 9, Matthews collided with teammate Morgan Rielly in a game against Pittsburgh. He missed the next six games due to a concussion.

Either Josh Leivo or Matt Martin will enter the lineup for Toronto on Saturday. Leivo has been a healthy scratch for 23 consecutive games. He last played a game on Dec. 31 against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Leivo has also been the topic of trade speculation as Monday’s NHL trade deadline approaches.

Hosmer was key to Kansas City’s back-to-back World Series teams, culminating in a championship in 2015. He turned 28 in October.

The ice cold MLB free agent market might be starting to thaw, with one of the winter’s biggest targets apparently landing in a new home. The San Diego Padres have reportedly agreed to terms with first baseman Eric Hosmer, per Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Women's Dominik Hasek Authentic Gold Reebok Jersey: NHL Buffalo Sabres #39 Third
This is just the third free agent contract longer than three years this winter, along with Yu Darvish to the Cubs (6 years, $126 million) and outfielder Lorenzo Cain to the Royals (5 years, $80 million), the latter a teammate of Hosmer’s in Kansas City for seven seasons.

Wil Myers hit 58 home runs, 58 Ted Ginn Jr Jersey doubles and stole 48 bases the last two seasons as San Diego’s first baseman while hitting .251/.332/.462, a 112 OPS+, reportedly told the team in December he would be willing to move to the outfield if the Padres signed a first baseman this winter, per AJ Cassavell of MLB.com.

The NHL decided that pausing its season for a few weeks and letting players risk injury for someone else wasn’t worth taking advantage of a once-every-four-years chance to grow the sport locally and internationally. That’s a personal choice, in line with the league’s history of prioritizing short-term convenience over whatever else.

The winner of the Finland-Sweden game will advance to face Kendall Coyne and the American women in the semifinal with a trip to the gold medal game on the line. A dozen years ago, Sweden pulled off one of women’s hockey’s biggest upsets by knocking out the U.S. in the semifinals, so they’ll try to pull off that miracle again starting with a win over Finland.

The other three men’s games will see Switzerland take on South Korea, Slovenia face Slovakia, and Germany against Norway. The Slovenia-Slovakia game will be of particular interest to U.S. fans as that result will have an impact on the final results in Group B.

The Americans can clinch the top spot in Group B with a win over the Russians on Saturday, which would earn a bye to the quarterfinals.

Haynesworth should be remembered for his tremendous ability as a dominating defensive tackle, but that’s just not the case.

He instead is best known for stomping on Dallas center Andre Gurode during a game in 2006, which led to a five-game suspension. He also signed a seven-year, $100 million deal with the Redskins, but spent most of those two seasons antagonizing the coaching staff.

Two words: “Don’t care!” Cutler is the type of guy who might give you the bird while walking his dog down the street. Wait … that happened. Cutler’s body language and don’t-give-a-you-know-what attitude have been over-analyzed for more than a decade.

Bills rookie head coach Sean McDermott will be quite familiar with the quarterback his team faces Sunday when Buffalo plays in Atlanta.

In McDermott’s six seasons as the Panthers defensive coordinator (2011-16), he coached against Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan in 12 games, losing seven of them. In that span, Ryan completed 68.6 percent of his passes and averaged 294.3 yards per game, throwing 21 touchdowns and 10 interceptions with a 98.6 passer rating.

Last season, Ryan completed 78.6 percent of his passes for 780 yards, six TDs, one INT and a 135.7 passer rating against the Panthers.

“The best-case scenario of a spinal cord concussion and early recovery are gone. Let’s hope for the next-best possibility of a great result from surgery and full neurologic recovery over the next 4 to 6 months.”

With that, we introduce Les Abrams, who for 35 years sold TV ad time. With the reminder “local stations only can sell ads before the opening kickoff, at halftime and at the end of the third quarter,” Abrams presents: “My solution to the plethora of ads in NFL games, which for sure leads to lower viewership:

“Currently, there are commercial breaks every time there’s a change of possession, after every score, extra point, injuries, et al. Fine, let’s leave that alone.

The Saints ranked 32nd in the NFL in pass defense and need significant help at cornerback. That’s why they have kicked the proverbial tires on New England Patriots star corner Malcolm Butler. Even if Butler does end up in New Orleans, it would behoove the Saints to make even more of an investment at the position with a ready-made perimeter corner like Humphrey.

“A lot of it was the mental capacity of the ballclub, the entire team,” Retzlaff said. “When you look back at it, you’ll see that a lot of the guys that played on that championship team ended up being coaches in the NFL.”nike-youth-cardinals-111

NFL playoff picture begins to clear as two lock up spots

Authentic Kids Sidney Jones Jersey The NFL playoff picture got clearer after the early games, as the Detroit Lions were eliminated, the Saints and Panthers locked up spots; and the Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West again.
Majestic Logan Forsythe Replica Women's Jersey - MLB Los Angeles Dodgers #11 Royal Blue Alternate Cool Base
The Chargers stayed alive with a win over the Jets, 29-13. The Patriots remained in position for the top seed in the AFC with a 37-16 win over the Bills. Buffalo remains tied with the Chargers and Titans, who lost 27-23 to the Rams, for a wild-card spot.

There’s more at stake than sharp barbs in this pushback from the masters of the universe.

The NFL is starting to feel the financial whiplash from Wall Street. Some of the highest rollers at the games these days are deal-makers and stock traders who unwind in the best stadium suites, sponsor the NFL and bankroll the franchise by buying blocks of season tickets.

Of course we should respect the American flag, said John O’Shea, New York-based chairman of Global Alliance Securities, who has season tickets to the Giants.

O’Shea did not dispute a player’s constitutional right to protest and he hasn’t shredded his season tickets just yet.

Authentic Kids Tiger Williams Jersey The Rams drew 56,612 to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum last Sunday for their loss to the Washington Redskins.

For some guys, it does mean that, Theismann said this week. In Ben’s case, I don’t think it applies. That was frustration.

But even if Roethlisberger plays well for the remainder of the season, Theismann said he suspects that Roethlisberger could walk away from the sport in the coming offseason.

NFL may tweak rules to make players stand for anthem

The NFL’s rules that players should stand at attention for the national anthem could be changed to make it clearly mandatory for them to do so, a league spokesman said Tuesday.
Men's Nike Seattle Seahawks #55 Frank Clark Elite Grey Alternate NFL Jersey
NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart addressed the recent comments by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who said that any of his players who demonstrated James Young Authentic Jersey during the national anthem would be benched.

Colton Sceviour Limited Jersey Jones said President Trump had reminded him of the NFL’s policy on conduct during pregame renditions of The Star-Spangled Banner.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Jones’ comments Monday, claiming the owner believed the controversy would ‘go away’ after a recent game in which Jones knelt with his team before the anthem.
Game Kids Nick Folk Jersey
Jones later said his organization had wanted to make a statement about unity and a statement about equality.

Trump tweeted at the time that the crowd was booing the kneeling Cowboys and that he approved of the way they all stood up for our National Anthem.

Big progress being made 锟斤拷 we all love our country! he tweeted.

I didn’t realize how quick it was going to be in looking at a play and immediately going on the air, FOX Sports analyst and former head of the NFL’s officiating department Dean Blandino said.

Whereas before you’d have more time to evaluate the play, the referee is talking to the coach, making an announcement. At FOX, you look at the play once and you’ve got a producer in your ear saying, ‘you’re on.’ The speed of how things happen was definitely an adjustment.

It’s something a friend of mine had done and thought I would be good at it. It was really a lot of fun and it really helped me in my career in the NFL and FOX, the 46-year-old said. Because you’re getting up in front of people, total strangers most of the time and trying to make them laugh and connect with them and that really helps when you have to get up in front of coaches, a group of owners and engage with them.

Blandino said he is interested in expanding his broadcasting career beyond his current role.
