Phish‘s annual end-of-summer trip to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in one of the highlights of the Colorado summer. Each year, thousands of fans flock to Colorado’s front range for Memorial Day Weekend, taking over the Broomfield, Colorado soccer stadium for the three shows—this year, Phish’s tour-closing summer run spans from August 31st to September 2nd. With Dick’s Sporting Good Park located in Broomfield, fans in Denver often opt to take party buses to the show. One fan-favorite bus service is J2G Live, which offers prompt buses to and from the Phish shows (tickets available here) in addition to a number of special benefits for riders.J2G Live will run their Destination Dick’s Phish party buses for the seventh year in a row, treating fans to an all-inclusive experience. Particularly great for out-of-towners, J2G Live’s round-trip coach buses pick up and drop off at the beloved venue, Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom, a staple of the Denver music scene that regularly hosts Red Rocks and Phish Dick’s afterparties. Music fans can head over to Cervantes’ at 3 p.m., where they’ll enjoy free food before the ride. Each ticket also includes special discounts for bus riders at the nearby dispensary, Denver Kush Club, such as buy-one-get-one deals, penny joints with purchase, and more.J2G Live’s buses leave exactly at 5 pm, giving fans plenty of time on the lot before the show to enjoy free beer and water from Boulder Beer Company. Beer and water will also be available for riders following Phish’s performance until 30 minutes after the show is over when the buses return to Cervantes. In addition, if Cervantes’ is hosting any late-night shows, riders receive discounted or even free entry to the late-night party, depending on the show. One confirmed show that riders will have discounted access to is Cycles, an up-and-coming jam band out Colorado who will perform an after-show on Friday, August 31st. J2G Live also offers a VIP package for riders, which includes an upgraded ride on a limo bus with an open bar.As J2G Live co-founder, Gary Mellini, shared about the upcoming Phish Dick’s run,Dick’s is the best weekend of the year. I’ve been a Phish fan for over 20 years now, and I know how big a pain it can be getting to and from the shows, especially if you are traveling out of town or have a big crew of people. Our philosophy has always been to offer the kind of service we’d expect if we were going to a show, so we make it as easy as possible for our riders. Basically, buy your ticket, show up on time, and we will handle the rest. To be able to help make so many fans’ experiences a little easier means a lot and to do it while seeing our favorite band together always makes for an amazing weekend. We are lucky we get to do it in our backyard every year.This year, J2G Live is also offering fans a chance to win a three-day pass to Phish’s Dick’s run.

FOLLOW US First Published: 21st August, 2020 10:00 IST WATCH US LIVE Tiger Woods got off to a hot start Thursday before even hitting his first shot.The images of Woods on the practice range rubbing his upper back with a towel and placing a cold bottle of water on the back of his neck was alarming for someone who has endured four back surgeries. He said last month at the Memorial that he has days when his back doesn’t feel right.This wasn’t one of them.Woods had some heating oils applied to his upper back before teeing off in The Northern Trust, and they were a little spicy. He was rubbing off the excess and trying to cool it down with the water.Once he got on the TPC Boston, it took him a little more time to heat up.Woods didn’t make a birdie until a two-putt on the par-5 18th hole as he made the turn, and then he ran off four birdies in a six-hole stretch on the front nine for a 3-under 68. That left him four shots behind Harris English among the early starters.“My lower back is used to it,” Woods said of the hot oils. “We do it all the time just so I can get loose. I decided to put some up on my neck, and it’s not as tolerant as my lower back, so it gets awfully hot. It’s common in pretty much every other sport, and especially hockey. Those guys put some pretty hot stuff on their legs, but you become accustomed to it.“My lower back is pretty immune to it,” he said. “But my neck is not.”His 68 was his lowest start since his last victory at the Zozo Championship in Japan, though it’s a small sample size. Woods has played only five times since then. Having played only twice since the PGA Tour resumed in June, he has slipped to No. 49 in the FedEx Cup with a goal of being among the top 30 after two weeks so he can reach the Tour Championship.Woods went back to his old putter — slightly shorter than the one he used at Harding Park in the PGA Championship two weeks ago — and didn’t have any good looks at birdie until he reached the par-5 18th in two.On the front nine, which played about a half-stroke easier, he had more chances and converted most of them. He made birdie on both par 3s, from 15 feet on No. 3 and from 6 feet below the cup on No. 8.“Whenever I gave myself a look, I made them,” he said.Both bogeys were set up by poor tee shots, one that hit a tree right of the 13th fairway and left him no shot at the green, and the other on his final hole at No. 9 when he went from the right rough to the shaggy collar of a bunker some 25 yards short of the green.Still, he made enough birdies over his last 10 holes to get going in the right direction.“Coming to a golf course I know helps,” said Woods, who has one victory and two runner-up finishes at the TPC Boston.Image credits: AP Associated Press Television News LIVE TV SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By Last Updated: 21st August, 2020 10:00 IST A Hot Start For Woods In Boston, Just Not On The Golf Course The images of Woods on the practice range rubbing his upper back with a towel and placing a cold bottle of water on the back of his neck was alarming for someone who has endured four back surgeries.

Paul Gilroy QC finalising Van Gaal’s severance package now. £5m pay off. He got £400k for winning FA Cup. Expect an announcement lunchtime— James Ducker (@TelegraphDucker) May 23, 2016But James Ducker, the northern football correspondent of Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper, tweeted Monday: “Paul Gilroy QC finalising Van Gaal’s severance package now…£5m pay off.”The BBC said that United would make a statement about Van Gaal at 1:00pm local time (1200 GMT) but an hour later there was still no word from the English football giants.British media have been awash with reports of Van Gaal’s demise, after a leak from an unknown source spread as Manchester United lifted the FA Cup on Saturday.The Dutchman cryptically commented, “It’s over” as he left the squad’s Cup final hotel on Sunday, but it was not clear whether he was referring to his tenure or United’s season.The BBC said Van Gaal had not been informed whether he was staying for next season, although it said Saturday’s 2-1 win over Palace at Wembley was believed to have been his last game in charge of United. DefiantVan Gaal himself was defiant after Saturday’s Cup final.“I show you the cup and I don’t discuss it with my friends of the media, who already sacked me for six months,” the 64-year-old said. Despite winning their first trophy since the great Alex Ferguson’s retirement in 2013, Van Gaal’s United didn’t challenge for the Premier League title and failed to qualify for the Champions League.Fans were also unhappy with the brand of football their team played under Van Gaal.United scored just 49 league goals this season, their lowest return for 26 years and many supporters felt Van Gaal’s approach ran counter to the club’s traditional attacking style.Mourinho, once Van Gaal’s assistant at Barcelona, saw his second spell as Chelsea manager end with the sack in December, after last season’s champions made a miserable start to the their Premier League title defence.United captain Wayne Rooney accepted this term’s performance had not been good enough by the standards expected at Old Trafford.“He has been under pressure,” Rooney said of Van Gaal. “I think we all have.“That’s part of playing for Manchester United and managing Manchester United — it is a massive club.“You have to set standards and we fell below them this season.“But we have to make sure as players we get back to those standards and make sure we are back challenging for the main trophies.”Meanwhile former United midfielder Ray Wilkins said Mourinho was the man to revitalise the club.“He (Mourinho) is a winner — there is no two ways about it,” Wilkins, also a former Chelsea assistant manager, told talkSPORT radio on Monday.“When he goes to a club, normally he wins a big trophy within the first couple of years.”Share on: WhatsApp “Which manager can do that, what I have done?” Read quotes from Louis van Gaal as he celebrates cup success in a fourth different country: https://t.co/m1q07LkjZc pic.twitter.com/tgciiC3qCB— Manchester United (@ManUtd) May 21, 2016 London, United Kingdom | AFP | Louis Van Gaal’s time as manager of Manchester United appeared to be nearing its end on Monday, amid reports that agreement on a severance package was all that stood in the way of his exit from Old Trafford.Both Van Gaal and leading employment lawyer Paul Gilroy were seen entering United’s Carrington training ground on Monday following reports that former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was poised to replace the Dutchman.Gilroy’s clients have included David Moyes, whose sacking as United manager paved the way for Van Gaal’s appointment.There has yet been no official confirmation from United, 20-times English champions, about the position of Van Gaal, who still has a season remaining on his three-year contract.
