“The idea of working with these people again is still something that is kind of at the front of our brains,” he said on Tuesday. “We’ve never ruled out the possibility that, you know, we could come back in some form, be it a movie or another Christmas thing or who knows? But nothing has been ruled out, believe me. The opportunity to work with everybody again would be fantastic, because it was the best six years of my life, no question.”Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, Noah Reid, Emily Hampshire and Annie Murphy on “Schitt’s Creek.” PopTVEarlier this year, the wildly popular series swept the 2020 Emmy Awards, taking home an unprecedented nine trophies for its final season. O’Hara, 66, Murphy, 33, and the father-son duo each received individual honors after the show went nearly unrecognized for the previous five years. After the whirlwind awards night, Daniel gushed over being able to share the moment with both his real-life family and the one he built through Schitt’s Creek.“Obviously for [my dad] to be in his 70s and to have never been nominated for an Emmy as an actor, it felt like, what a lovely time for him to win. I was just so proud. I was proud of our relationship. I was proud of the work that he did,” Daniel told Vulture in September. “The whole process just felt oddly not real. … It was just this game that eventually we’d have to give them all back.”- Advertisement – Best wishes, warmest regards!

BARCELONA, Spain (Reuters) – Barcelona captain Lionel Messi reported for training yesterday for the first time since requesting to leave the club last month.Messi had failed to turn up to the club’s tests for COVID-19 eight days ago and was absent from all subsequent sessions ahead of the new campaign after giving the club an official notice that he wished to leave.But the club’s all-time top scorer finally appeared at the Joan Gamper training ground ahead of an evening session, his first under new coach Ronald Koeman, after taking a test for the novel coronavirus at his home on Sunday.Messi, 33, revealed last Friday in an interview with Goal.com that he was staying at Barca for the coming season as he did not wish to face a court case with the club where he has spent his entire career over a disputed release clause in his contract. The Argentine claimed in an official letter that he was free to leave the club unilaterally and without a transfer fee owing to the clause.But Barca and the league’s organising body responded by saying the clause was no longer valid and that the only way to free him from his contract was by paying a release clause of 700 million euros ($827.68M).Messi, however, will be free to leave free of charge next June unless he pens a new deal with Barca. Barca, who will be looking to reclaim La Liga title after surrendering it to Real Madrid last season, are sitting out the first two weeks of the new campaign which begins on Friday due to reaching the Champions League quarter-finals.Koeman’s side will instead play pre-season friendlies against Gimnastic de Tarragona on Saturday and Girona on September 16 before their first league game at home to Villarreal on September 27.
Despite the disappointment of the 0-0 stalemate, City still have an enormous 14-point lead at the top of the Premier League table and the chances of any of their rivals catching them appear remote.Arsenal — missing Mesut Ozil — played out a frustrating 1-1 draw with West Brom at a wet Hawthorns to climb to fifth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.The match was Wenger’s 811th in charge — moving him ahead of United legend Ferguson, who was at the helm for 810 matches in the Premier League era.Arsenal looked to have sealed all three points when an Alexis Sanchez free-kick from the edge of the box found the net via a deflection from James McClean in the 83rd minute. The goal was ruled to be a McClean own goal.But a last-gasp penalty from Jay Rodriguez levelled the match at 1-1 after Calum Chambers was deemed to have handled the ball, sparking frustration on the Arsenal bench.A furious Wenger said his team had been denied all three points by referee Mike Dean’s decision to award the controversial spot kick.“We have a very difficult schedule and I believe we fought hard to win the game but didn’t because of a bad decision,” he said.“He (Dean) didn’t see it. There was a player in front of him. That’s why I questioned his decision, he didn’t see it.”Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United have stumbled over the Christmas period, drawing three games against sides they would have expected to beat and slipping behind defending champions Chelsea.With games coming thick and fast over Christmas and the New Year, United and in-form Liverpool are back in action on Monday, against Everton and Burnley respectively.City host Watford on Tuesday and Tottenham Hotspur travel to Swansea on the same evening while Arsenal and Chelsea will face off in a blockbuster clash on Wednesday. Share on: WhatsApp Guardiola finally held to drawLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester City survived late penalty drama at Crystal Palace on Sunday but saw their 18-match Premier League winning run halted as Arsene Wenger overtook Alex Ferguson’s record for games in charge.Pep Guardiola’s men travelled to their match in London with a 13-point lead over second-placed Chelsea and strongly fancied to match Bayern Munich’s record for the big five European leagues of 19 straight victories.But in the end they were grateful to goalkeeper Ederson for keeping out Luka Milivojevic’s spot-kick in injury time after Wilfried Zaha was adjudged to have been brought down by Raheem Sterling.The dropped points in the 0-0 draw will be less of a concern for Guardiola than injury fears over Gabriel Jesus, who limped off early, and Kevin De Bruyne, who was stretchered off late following an ugly challenge by Palace substitute Jason Puncheon.Guardiola, whose team easily surpassed Arsenal’s previous Premier League record of 14 straight wins, pleaded with officials to protect players.“I admire the physicality in the Premier League but the referees have to protect the players,” he said. “Not just the best players. All the players.“I haven’t spoken to the FA (Football Association) about it. They focus on diving, on these kind of things. I know the contact is allowed here more than any other country but there is a limit. They don’t have to change the way here. That’s why it is so nice.“There is a line where you go above and it is dangerous.”Guardiola said Jesus could be out for up to two months but the injury to Belgian playmaker De Bruyne looks less serious than feared even though he may not be ready to face Watford on Tuesday.Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace frustrated their illustrious visitors in the first half at Selhurst Park and although City began to find their groove after the break, goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey denied Leroy Sane and De Bruyne.Andros Townsend missed the home side’s best chance of the half with about a quarter of an hour to go before Milivojevic fluffed his last-gasp chance to clinch all three points.“It was an excellent point and before the game we would have been jumping through hoops with a point, but when you get a penalty late in the game and you miss like we have before there is an element of sadness,” said Hodgson.– City cushion –
By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe beauty of the West Kootenay Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby League is that there are never losing teams, only winners.Fans will get a chance to witness joy on the track Friday at the NDCC Arena when the league hosts its final regular season bout — a bout featuring both expansion teams from Nelson.“Many derby girls (myself included) will tell you that after a bout, they have no idea what the score was,” said Nicole Courson of the Lumber Jackies on the eve of the final bout of the regular season — Friday at 7 p.m.“You try and watch it but there is so much going on and every jam is so different and exciting you can’t always track the score,” Courson added.The Lumber Jackies bat second during the doubleheader against the ever-improving Dam City Roller of Castlegar. First jam goes at 9 p.m.Kicking off the evening is the Killjoys, the other Nelson squad, up against Salmo’s Babes of Brutality.It was in the fall when more than 40 women took to the Trafalgar gymnasium to begin training for the 2011 season.Courson said the skaters looked like a bunch of Bambies on ice during that first session.“Within six months we went from putting on skates (for the first time for most of us) to playing in a bout,” Courson explained. “This is almost unheard of in any other league, but we have great trainers and incredibly dedicated skaters that made it possible.”Organizer gave the two Nelson teams a break to open the season, scheduling the two teams against each other.The Lumber Jackies won that inaugural contest.However, since that game in April it’s been a huge learning curve against the other three stronger teams — Dam City Rollers, Babes of Brutality and Rossland’s Gnarlies Angels.Not a big deal according to Courson.“When you lose a bout, you learn a lot . . . and you take it to the next bout you play,” said Courson.“At the end of the night, win or lose, everyone does a victory lap and no one can wipe the smiles off their faces. “Everyone always has the best time of their lives — with that much camaraderie and sportsmanship among over 100 women, every single skater truly does feel like a winner.”Flat Track Roller Derby uses many of the same rules of the older banked track sport seen on television during the 60’s and 70’s.Each heat begins with a pack of blockers lead by two pivots. The two jammers from each team, who score the points, start a 10 meters behind the pack and begin skating when the last blocker crosses the pivot line.The jammers work their way through the pack of blockers twice, scoring points on the second time through.However, only the lead jammer can call off a jam.Gnarlies Angels and Babe of Brutality lead league standings.The Dam City Rollers of Castlegar are third followed by the two Nelson team.The Lumber Jackies face a huge test during the final bout when the club meets Dam City.“Every derby game plan is essentially the same: skate hard, hit hard, be quick on your feet and strong to your core,” said Courson when asked about game strategy heading into Friday’s tilt.“There are so many strategies and techniques in this sport that it is definitely half mental, and every jam is different in the circumstances around which you plan your strategies. “It’s a very think on your feet sport, so the ‘game plan’ is based in simple techniques like making and breaking up “walls”, helping and hindering the jammers, etc. . . . But the smart little plays that will win the game vary with every jam.”And in the end it’s all for a good time.EXTRA JAM: Half of the profits from Friday’s double-header action at the NDCC Arena are being donated to West Kootenay Habitat for Humanity. . . .Tickets can be picked up in advance at RossVegas in Rossland, Gerick Cycle and Sports in Trail, Mountain High Lighting in Castlegar, West Kootenay Scuba Shop in Salmo and Phat Angel in Nelson. . . .Doors open at 6 firstname.lastname@example.org
