  • Church’s ‘Minneapolis Miracle’ Post Goes ViralChurch’s ‘Minneapolis Miracle’ Post Goes Viral

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities church has a light-hearted reminder for Minneapolis Vikings fans who prayed for a victory on Sunday. “I’m going to remember that moment forever,” said Vikings fan Jeffrey Galbavy. He was at U.S. Bank Stadium Sunday, lucky enough to see wide receiver Stefon Diggs score the improbable game-winning touchdown over the New Orleans Saints. The play was rightfully named the “Minneapolis Miracle,” which by definition must mean there was divine intervention. “Someone answered our prayers,” said fan Thao Lao. (credit: CBS) It sure felt that way to Julie Craven, who was also at the game. She is the communications director for Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in northeast Minneapolis. “It was one of the most emotional moments I’ve ever experienced,” Craven said. “When I got home I couldn’t sleep. I mean, the adrenaline was still kind of working and I thought, ‘You know what? There is a social media post out there.’” Craven wanted to incorporate the excitement from the game along with her church, so she came up with simple message featuring the Vikings logo on a purple background. (credit: Our Lady of Lourdes/Facebook) “I put it out the next morning thinking wouldn’t it great if I got like 50 likes,” Craven said. The post generated more than 1,000 reactions within 24 hours, and was shared about 7,500 times. Many people who commented appreciated the witty post. Some even joked that they needed to go to confessional for the language they were using prior to the game winning score. “We were just tickled that everyone got a kick out of post, and it’s a wonderful tribute what the Vikings did Sunday afternoon,” Craven said. She wouldn’t mind if fans took the message to heart. “I think it’s time to go to church {laughs]!” Loa said. The pews might be packed with purple Sunday morning, but that 7 p.m. mass might be a problem for Galbavy. “That’s going be around halftime of the NFC Championship [game],” Galbavy said. In addition to that post, Craven said the church’s pastor, Father Dan Griffith, is a lifelong Packers fan. However, she said he did wish the Vikings well before the game Sunday.

  • How Does Minnesota’s Emergency Alert System Work?How Does Minnesota’s Emergency Alert System Work?

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — State emergency officials in Hawaii made an enormous mistake over the weekend. They issued an emergency alert to cellphones, televisions and radios telling everyone in the state a missile was headed their way. It took another 38 minutes to let people know it was a false alarm. All of the news coverage has viewers like Craig from Richfield and Stewart from St. Paul wanting to know: How does Minnesota’s Emergency Alert System work? Located in the state’s Emergency Operations Center are the pod of computers that have the software required to send statewide emergency alerts. There are three people trained to send them out to broadcasters — television and radio — and cellphones. “I’m very confident my staff has the protocols in place that that would not happen here,” said Kevin Reed, Minnesota’s deputy director of the Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management. Minnesota has the ability to send alerts statewide or to specific counties. Except for testing the system, HSEM officials said it has never sent an alert statewide. (credit: CBS) Minnesota uses the system rarely to send alerts to specific counties. In 2016, there were alerts for a road closure in Martin County, an ammonia spill in McLeod County and sex offenders on the loose in Grant County. “We take this seriously,” Reed said. “We only send out alerts that need to be acted upon.” There are seven steps required before sending out an alert, according to John Dooley, the manager of Minnesota’s Integrated Public Alert Warning System. The first is to set the destination: cellphones, broadcasters or both. After that, someone would chose the event. Those options include a required monthly test, a required weekly test, a civil danger warning, a nuclear power plant warning, an immediate evacuation notice and a shelter-in-place warning. A civil danger warning was the one sent mistakenly in Hawaii. Then, someone would set the duration of the warning and the location: either county or statewide. After that, someone would write the script or choose from a small set of pre-scripted warnings. Unlike Hawaii, Minnesota does not have a pre-scripted warning about missile attacks. A computer operator then sets the audio before completing the final step: sending the alert. “After we press that button, there’s another screen that will pop up and will tell us, ‘Do you really want to send this?'” Dooley said. Reed said Minnesota’s system does have the ability to recall a mistake or immediately send out an additional message saying it was a mistake. Amber Alerts are sent out through the same system, but they are under the jurisdiction of the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Weather alerts are sent through the National Weather Service. The federal government also has the ability to send alerts nationwide.

  • ‘I Want To Witness History’: Vikings Fans Ready For Philly‘I Want To Witness History’: Vikings Fans Ready For Philly

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s not enough for some Vikings fans to have been at Sunday’s extraordinary win over the Saints. They want to be in Philly for the NFC Championship game too. Fans started making plans for Sunday’s game against the Eagles hours after the 29-24 win. Demand is so high to get there that Sun Country added a second flight to Philadelphia. The euphoria has yet to wear off for Vikings fans who cheered on the team in person Sunday. After the Minneapolis miracle, Aaron Obermann knew he must be there again, this time to watch them Bring It Home. “I want to witness history. We’re going to do it. We’re going to be the first team to play in a home Super Bowl. We’re going to be the first team to win it,” Obermann said. The confident fan and member of Viking World Order committed allegiance to the Vikings as a kid, watching with family. “It’s in my blood, who I am, it’s part of me. Some people go on vacations and go travel — like, no. This is it for me this is what I do,” Obermann said. He knows the price to travel is high but says the cost would be greater to miss out. “I’ve got to pull all my strings. I’ll get everything situated where I’m staying and my airfare and tickets,” Obermann said. And he’s not alone. “Super pumped, super excited,” Bill Boldenow said. Within an hour of the win, Boldenow was on his phone making arrangements. “Plane tickets booked, hotel is booked. I’m going there is no question about it, wife’s given me permission it’s on,” Boldenow said. He is still looking for the right seats, preferably by Vikings fans. He said he’ll bring the same intensity to Lincoln Financial Field. “A game of this magnitude how could you not want to be there?” Boldenow said.

  • Timberwolves Fall To Magic 108-102, Halting 5-Game Win StreakTimberwolves Fall To Magic 108-102, Halting 5-Game Win Streak

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — With Bismack Biyombo and rookie Khem Birch providing boards and blocks, the Orlando Magic won for the first time in 2018. The duo combined for 26 rebounds and nine blocked shots in Orlando’s 108-102 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night. Statistically the worst rebounding team in the NBA, the Magic had a 51-37 edge on the boards and broke a seven-game losing streak against a team that had won five straight. “Biyombo is a very hard-playing guy and Birch hurt us, so the rebounding was problematic,” said Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau. “I thought we were in position to win but if you don’t rebound the ball, you’re putting yourself in a big hole.” Evan Fournier scored a season-high 32 points for the Magic, and D.J. Augustin added 11 points and three assists in a 35-point fourth quarter. Birch, who has spent much of the season going back and forth to the NBA G League, contributed 12 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks on less than 19 minutes. “It’s hard to take out a player who plays hard, so that’s what I did,” said the 6-foot-9 rookie from UNLV. “When you play limited minutes, you’ve got to go as hard as you can. You don’t want to mess up the opportunity.” Birch finished the first quarter by making the first four free throws of his NBA career, and blocked a couple of shots in the second quarter to keep the Timberwolves from pulling away. “He’s an NBA player, not a G League player,” said Magic coach Frank Vogel. “He really plays that role well, the role of shot-blocking and rebounding. And he’s got good instincts on the defensive end.” Jimmy Butler had 28 points and seven rebounds for the Timberwolves, who had won their five preceding games by an average of 18.8 points. “I’m glad we (expletive) lost, coming in here on our high horse thinking we are a really good team and we haven’t done anything yet,” Butler said. “Good for us, man. They played better than us.” Fournier and Augustin hit 3-pointers during a 14-4 fourth-quarter run that put Orlando ahead to stay, and Augustin’s three free throws with 2:10 left gave the Magic a nine-point lead, the biggest of the game for either team. Jeff Teague and Karl-Anthony Towns answered with 3-pointers to keep the Timberwolves in it, but Biyombo scored five straight Magic points to regain an eight-point lead with 50 seconds left. A loss would have dropped Orlando (13-31) to the worst record in the NBA. Magic guard Arron Afflalo and Timberwolves forward Nemanja Bjelica were ejected with 7:58 left in the second quarter when they got into a fight while the game was being played. Afflalo threw at least one punch in the fight, which came four minutes after both players had been assessed technical fouls. “I don’t want to feel like a victim here, that’s part of the game,” Bjelica said. “But he took a swing at me, and I was just trying to protect myself, first of all, and to calm him down because he was wild. “I don’t know what’s wrong with that guy, but at that point I have to protect myself and my family.” Afflalo was unavailable for comment after the game. TIP-INS Timberwolves: Minnesota shot only 10 free throws. “Very unusual for us,” Thibodeau said. “I want to take a look at as well.” … Now fourth in the Western Conference, the Wolves are 6-11 against teams from the East. Magic: F Marreese Speights missed the game for personal reasons. … With 10 points and seven rebounds in the first half, Birch exceeded his career totals in both categories. … Biyombo had 10 rebounds and three blocks in the first quarter. MORE FROM BUTLER “I think we were comfortable,” Butler said. “We didn’t play hard, we didn’t rebound, we didn’t guard, we didn’t execute, we didn’t do anything. We were going through the motions out there. When you do that in this league, you can get beat by anybody.” UP NEXT Timberwolves: Visit Houston on Thursday night. Magic: Visit Cleveland on Thursday night. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)

  • Nassar’s Victims Recount Sex Abuse Suffered As Young GymnastsNassar’s Victims Recount Sex Abuse Suffered As Young Gymnasts

    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — One after one, gymnasts and other victims of a disgraced former sports doctor stepped forward in a Michigan courtroom Tuesday to recount the sexual abuse and emotional trauma he inflicted on them as children, including one who warned that girls eventually “grow into strong women that return to destroy your world.” Nearly 100 victims are expected to address the court during the four-day sentencing hearing for 54-year-old Larry Nassar. Many cried as they told their stories on the hearing’s first day, and some requested anonymity. Others unleashed. “I testified to let the world know that you are a repulsive liar and those ‘treatments’ were pathetically veiled sexual abuse,” victim Kyle Stephens said to Nassar, who often bowed his head and closed his eyes or looked away as she and others spoke. Read More: Minnesota Gymnast Comes Forward As Sex Abuse Victim Stephens, the first victim to speak, said Nassar repeatedly abused her from age 6 until age 12 during family visits to his home in Holt, near Lansing. She said he rubbed his genitals on her and digitally penetrated her, among other abuse. She said Nassar denied it, and her parents initially believed him. Stephens said she largely blamed her father’s suicide on the shame and self-loathing he felt for defending Nassar. “Perhaps you have figured it out by now, but little girls don’t stay little forever,” Stephens said. “They grow into strong women that return to destroy your world.” Dr Larry Nassar (credit: CBS) The judge consoled the 29 women and girls who spoke or had their statements read on Tuesday, saying they should not blame themselves. More victims will speak on Wednesday. Nassar has pleaded guilty to molesting females with his hands at his Michigan State University office, his home and a Lansing-area gymnastics club, often while their parents were in the room. He also worked for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics, which trains Olympians. Another statement came from Donna Markham, who told of how her 23-year-old daughter Chelsey killed herself in 2009, years after Nassar sexually abused her during a medical examination. “It all started with him,” she said, describing her daughter’s downward spiral into drug abuse. Victims described experiencing “searing pain” during the assaults and having feelings of shame and embarrassment. They said it had changed their life trajectories — affecting relationships, causing them to be distrustful and leading to depression, suicidal thoughts, and anger and anxiety about whether they should have spoken up sooner. “He touched the most innocent places on my body,” said 17-year-old Jessica Thomashaw, recounting how she was sexually assaulted at ages 9 and 12. “I couldn’t be just a normal girl anymore, and I forever lost a big piece of my childhood due to his abuse.” Ingham County Circuit Judge Rosemarie Aquilina, who is expected to order a sentence on Friday, said the system had failed them. Read More: USA Gymnastics Denies Abuse Cover-Up, Nichols’ Attorney Pushes Back “You shouldn’t be angry with yourself,” she told a 31-year-old victim, who said she was assaulted almost 20 years ago. “You went to him for pain and healing, and you didn’t know. No one faults you or any other victim for that. You were a child.” Prosecutors are seeking at least 40 years in prison for Nassar, who has already been sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for child pornography crimes. Olympic gold medalists Simone Biles, Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney and Aly Raisman have said they, too, were victims. Raisman tweeted Monday that she would not attend the sentencing “because it is too traumatic for me. My impact letter will be read in court in front of Nassar. I support the brave survivors. We are all in this together.” Nassar admitted in November that he digitally penetrated 10 girls, mostly under the guise of treatment, between 1998 and 2015. As part of plea deals in two adjacent Michigan counties, he said his conduct had no legitimate medical purpose and that he did not have the girls’ consent. The criminal cases followed reports last year in The Indianapolis Star about how USA Gymnastics mishandled complaints about sexual misconduct involving him and coaches. Women and girls said the stories inspired them to step forward with detailed allegations of abuse. Melissa Imrie told the judge she was assaulted in 1997, when she was 12, after breaking her tailbone. She described years of severe depression, sleeplessness and other issues. “Everybody’s story that I listened to today is just an echo of everything that I’ve went through. They’re just speaking like it’s my voice,” Imrie said. She said she wants young athletes “to be safe from sexual predators, from this kind of abuse.” (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

  • Was The Last Minn. Super Bowl Halftime Show The Worst Ever?Was The Last Minn. Super Bowl Halftime Show The Worst Ever?

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The last time the Super Bowl was in Minnesota was in 1992, and the theme for halftime show was called “Winter Magic.” It featured featured giant snowmen, hanging snow globes and ice skaters on stage. Lakeville resident Scott Bloom performed in the halftime show with the University of Minnesota Marching Band as a tuba player. He is not alone in his opinion of the show. (credit: Buckets and Tap Shoes/YouTube) “It was terrible. It truly was terrible,” Bloom said. “You had all these hokey dancers. They had people in the stands holding up plaques, and then they shaped little snowflakes.” Burnsville resident Miriam Ring was one of them. She had to hold up a sign during the show, where the main act that year was Gloria Estefan. “It wasn’t anything like, ‘Oh my gosh, this was the most amazing thing I saw,’” Ring said. Estefan was a name in her own right, and her career was very hot in 1992. But the show’s cold theme was received poorly, and has been dubbed by some media critics as the worst halftime show ever. In fact, that year it had lower ratings than “In Living Color” on a competing network. (credit: Buckets and Tap Shoes/YouTube) The next halftime show would feature Michael Jackson at Super Bowl XXXIV, starting a new wave of making the halftime show an entertainment experience on its own. “Because they were so embarrassed by what took place with ours, they felt they truly needed to get a big name out there,” Bloom said. Justin Timberlake will be bringing sexy back to Minneapolis this time. “I certainly hope that they do a much better job with this one,” Bloom said. The 1992 halftime show did feature a lot of dancers from local high schools and color guards around the state. For what it’s worth, Bloom and Ring had high praise for Harry Connick Jr., who performed “The Star Spangled Banner” that year. Pink will perform the National Anthem this year.

  • Hastings Teens’ CPR, Teamwork Helps Save Man’s LifeHastings Teens’ CPR, Teamwork Helps Save Man’s Life

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Two young ladies who play on Hastings High School girl’s hockey team worked as a team to save a life. They were on their way to school when they saw a man laying on an icy driveway. The man was unresponsive next to West 15th Street in Hastings. “It’s a remarkable story we’re very proud of the actions that they did,” Hastings Fire Chief Mike Schutt said. Schutt is singing the praises of the two young ladies whose unselfish act saved a life. “When it’s cold outside, some people may just bypass the scene and think nothing of it,” he said. It was -8 degrees Friday morning when Sydney Radke was on her way to pick up her teammate Addie Buck on the way to school. “I was just going down the road and I see this guy in this bright, blue T-shirt,” Radke said. “It’s -8, why is someone out in the cold like that? I just felt like something was wrong, so I called Addie and said we need to go back.” The girls turned the car around and went back to see if everything was OK. “They guy was like ‘No, I don’t know what happened,’ and he was trying to do CPR with one hand, and learn how to do it over the phone,” Radke said. Buck grabbed a blanket from the car while Radke ran to the man’s side. “When I got to him, his lips and tongue were blue and both his eyes were open, and it just didn’t look good,” Radke said. “So I just started doing compressions. At about the 25th compressio,n he took a couple of breaths and Addie was like, ‘Syd, is that you or him breathing?'” The girls say the man stopped breathing, they did more chest compressions until Hastings Police and Fire arrived. Officers used the AED they all carry in squad cars to revive the man. “We helped them get the stretcher since his driveway was so icy,” Buck said. Buck and Radke say they still can’t believe they helped save a life, and now both want to help others be in a position to do the same. “I just want to spread awareness and have people take CPR,” Radke said. Radke was required to get her CPR certification at her summer job at a Hastings day care. Her CPR instructor is also a paramedic EMT with the Hastings Fire Department. Chief Schutt will recognize the two young women officially during a city council meeting sometime next month.

  • Victorian-Inspired Ice House Struggling To Make It To Lake HarrietVictorian-Inspired Ice House Struggling To Make It To Lake Harriet

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — While many Minneapolis residents were worrying about where to put their cars during the snow emergency, one northeast couple had to deal with moving a tiny house. It was was made to be part of the annual Art Shanty project, which kicks off this weekend on Lake Harriet. It is a month-long public art exhibition that encourages folks to get outside and celebrate the north. But one house is having trouble getting to the show. The 1,300-pound Victorian ice shanty should be on Lake Harriet, not here on 34th Avenue Northeast. It took Derek Miller four months to build the ice shanty. It is a labor of love for his girlfriend, Amber Bjork, and her acting troupe. Derek Miller (credit: CBS) “We’re both theater artists. He has this amazing will to design and build as well, and I am a theater maker,” Bjork said. “I have this will to make very small theater for very intimate audiences.” Just days before the exhibition, it has been one set back after another. “I got this ice shanty out of my driveway, skidded it down the alley here, got it to the street where I was going to get it up onto a trailer, and that all went really well and I thought that was going to be the hardest part,” Miller said. That trailer was too small, and Miller couldn’t find a tow company to help. “After that, we literally said, ‘It will be OK as long as they don’t declare a snow emergency,’ and then they declared a snow emergency,” he said. The race against the clock began. “We got it to the correct side literally four minutes before the city snow plow came down the street,” he said. As amazing as it is on the outside, it is even more incredible on the inside. But you will have to come see it at Lake Harriet for yourself, assuming it makes it there. “After I spent this much time building it, I just really want it to get out there so that everybody can see what I’ve done and everybody can see what they’re going to do,” Miller said. Miller still has not found someone to tow it. He said if anyone out there can help, they would love to get it on Lake Harriet before the weekend. Miller can be reached at 612-508-1490.

  • Small Child Dies In Western Wisconsin House FireSmall Child Dies In Western Wisconsin House Fire

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – There is heartbreak in New Richmond, Wisconsin, after a 4-year-old boy was killed in a fire. First responders and neighbors say there was a heroic effort to rescue the child Monday afternoon. The fire was reported just after 3 p.m., and the New Richmond Fire Department arrived in just seven minutes, but volunteer firefighters say it was already too late. Fire investigators sifted through the remains of the gutted home on the quiet cul de sac where it once stood. New Richmond Mayor Fred Horne, who’s also a volunteer firefighter, was on the scene and described the desperate efforts to save the boy. “As I told one of the family members last night, we have kids, we have grandkids — we tried everything we could to get into that building,” he said. Neighbor Allison O’Shea rushed outside after hearing loud noises, only to see the fire and the boy’s two older sisters, who are in middle school, crying out. “‘My brother’s in there! I don’t know what to do! It’s my fault!’ I mean, what do you say? I just hugged them and said, Let’s pray, let’s pray,” she said. The two girls told O’Shea they were baby-sitting the boy when they decided to go outside to play. Within minutes, the home was on fire. The father — who was running an errand — tried to save the child, as did neighbors. “It just was a panic, it was frantic, it was rough,” O’Shea said. First responders quickly joined in the rescue effort , the roof of the home collapsed, one firefighter was injured as he jumped out of the second level. “We fought hard, we did everything we possibly could,” Horne said. “We are just devastated by this.” The Wisconsin State Fire Marshall has been called in to investigate. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but local officials tell us there is nothing to indicate that the fire was anything but a tragic accident. The firefighter who was injured is expected to fully recover. The St. Croix Sheriff’s Department has not released the name of the child.

  • More Actors Say They Won’t Work With Woody AllenMore Actors Say They Won’t Work With Woody Allen

    NEW YORK (AP) — A growing number of actors are distancing themselves from Woody Allen and his next film, heightening questions about the future of the prolific 82-year-old filmmaker in a Hollywood newly sensitive to allegations of sexual misconduct. Timothee Chalamet on Tuesday said he will donate his salary for an upcoming Woody Allen film to three charities fighting sexual harassment and abuse: Time’s Up, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN. The breakout star of “Call Me By Your Name” announced on Instagram that he didn’t want to profit from his work on Allen’s “A Rainy Day in New York,” which wrapped shooting in the fall. “I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve,” said Chalamet. Chalamet is just the latest cast member of an Allen production to express regret or guilt about being professionally associated with the director. In recent weeks, Rebecca Hall (“A Rainy Day in New York,” ”Vicky Cristina Barcelona”), Mira Sorvino (“Mighty Aphrodite”), Ellen Page (“To Rome With Love”), David Krumholtz (“Wonder Wheel”) and Griffith Newman (“A Rainy Day in New York”) have all in some way distanced themselves from Allen or vowed that they wouldn’t work with him again. The rising chorus suggests the road ahead for Allen may be particularly challenging, even for a director whose personal controversies have for decades made him an alternatively beloved and reviled figure in movies. Financial support for Allen has not previously waned in part because of the eagerness many stars have for working with a cinematic legend. But fielding a starry cast may prove increasingly difficult for Allen in a movie industry in the midst of a “Me Too” reckoning. “If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film,” Greta Gerwig, who co-starred in Allen’s 2012 comedy “To Rome With Love,” told The New York Times last week . “I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again. Dylan Farrow’s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization.” Dylan Farrow, Allen’s adopted daughter, has said Allen molested her in an attic in 1992 when she was seven. Allen, who has long denied the allegations, was investigated for the incident but not charged. Farrow has previously questioned why the “Me Too” movement hasn’t ensnarled Allen. In an op-ed published last month in The Los Angeles Times, she wrote: “Why is it that Harvey Weinstein and other accused celebrities have been cast out by Hollywood, while Allen recently secured a multimillion-dollar distribution deal with Amazon, greenlit by former Amazon Studios executive Roy Price before he was suspended over sexual misconduct allegations?” Price, the former head of Amazon Studios, resigned in October following an allegation that he had sexually harassed television producer Isa Hackett while she was working on the Amazon series “The Man in the High Castle.” “A Rainy Day in New York” is the fourth project for Allen with Amazon, which bet heavily on the filmmaker to help establish its film production arm as a home to auteur filmmakers. It reportedly spent $80 million to lure Allen into television to make the 2016 series “Crisis in Six Scenes.” Amazon, which didn’t respond to queries Tuesday, also distributed Allen’s “Cafe Society” in 2016 and “Wonder Wheel,” which opened December 1. It has grossed a mere $1.4 million domestically on an estimated budget of $25 million but had more success overseas, grossing $7.8 million. “A Rainy Day in New York,” a romantic comedy due out sometime this year, also stars Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Liev Schreiber and Elle Fanning. In his statement, Chalamet tellingly noted that due to “contractual obligations” he couldn’t comment on the long-standing allegations against Allen. The announcement by Chalamet, a favorite Oscar contender for best actor this year, followed a similar one Friday by his co-star Hall. She said she was donating her salary from the film to Time’s Up, the recently formed initiative to combat gender inequality in the entertainment industry. “It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation,” Hall wrote on Instagram. Some have continued to publicly support Allen, though, including Alec Baldwin. “Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed,” Baldwin said Tuesday on Twitter. “The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked with Woody Allen three times and it was one of the privileges of my career.” (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

  • Brandon Marshall On Vikings-Eagles NFC ChampionshipBrandon Marshall On Vikings-Eagles NFC Championship

    By Matt Citak What a weekend of excitement in the NFC Divisional Round. First the Eagles put on a defensive show, limiting the Falcons to just 10 points en route to an upset win over Atlanta. Then the following day in Minnesota, we saw four lead changes in the final three minutes of the game, which ended with the “Minneapolis Miracle” and the Vikings booking themselves a trip to Philadelphia for the NFC Championship. In what will go down as one of the craziest games in NFL Postseason history, the Minnesota Vikings have made it back to the NFC Championship for the first time since the 2009 season, thanks to a last-second, 61-yard touchdown catch from Stefon Diggs. The miraculous season continues for Case Keenum and the Vikings, as the journeyman quarterback completed 62.5 percent of his passes for 318 yards, one touchdown and an interception in Minnesota’s 29-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints. However Minnesota couldn’t get much going on the ground, as Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon combined to carry the ball 27 times for just 84 yards (3.1 yards per carry). The Vikings ranked seventh in the league with 122.3 rushing yards per game during the regular season, and will once again have their hands full on Sunday, as Philadelphia finished the year with the NFL’s top-ranked rushing defense, allowing just 79.2 rushing yards per game. The Eagles may have the league’s top rushing defense, but the Vikings defense is quite impressive in its own right. Minnesota’s defense ended the regular season ranked first in the NFL in total yards allowed (275.9) and points allowed per game (15.8), while finishing second in both passing yards allowed (192.4) and rushing yards allowed per game (83.6). The Saints had some success moving the ball against the Vikings defense on Sunday, as New Orleans gained 358 total yards on the day. But 278 of those yards came from the arm of future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. Minnesota did a tremendous job of limiting the running back pair of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, as the league’s best rushing duo combined for just 68 yards on 21 carries (3.2 yards per carry). The Eagles run game had been one of the best throughout the regular season, but Philadelphia’s drop in quarterback play from Carson Wentz to Nick Foles has had an affect on their rushing attack. The Philadelphia Eagles rode the superb play of their defense to a 15-10 upset win over the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons, who averaged 364.8 total yards per game during the regular season, were able to muster just 281 total yards of offense against Philadelphia’s defense. The Eagles were able to hold Matt Ryan in check, limiting last year’s league MVP to 210 yards and one touchdown on a 61.1 completion percentage. Philadelphia also did a good job of getting pressure on Ryan, finishing the game with three sacks and 11 QB hits. Atlanta did find some success running the ball against the NFL’s top rush defense, as Tevin Coleman was able to take 10 carries for 79 yards. However starting running back Devonta Freeman was completely shut down in Philadelphia, gaining only seven yards on 10 carries. Things won’t get any easier for Philadelphia this weekend, as the Vikings ranked within the top 11 in the NFL in total yards (356.9), passing yards (234.6), rushing yards (122.3), and points per game (23.9) during the regular season. While most believe this game will come down to the performance of the two defenses, the Eagles will need their offense to carry some of the load on Sunday. Philadelphia had one of the most successful rushing attacks throughout the regular season, averaging 132.2 rushing yards per game. But that was not the case in the Divisional Round against the Falcons. Running backs Jay Ajayi, LeGarrette Blount, and Corey Clement combined to carry the ball 25 times for just 78 yards (3.1 yards per carry) last weekend, as the running game was shut down in the most crucial of moments. Atlanta dared Nick Foles to beat them with his arm, and luckily for Philadelphia, the 28-year-old quarterback came through. Foles completed 76.7 percent of his passes for 246 yards against Atlanta’s solid pass defense, helping move the Eagles up and down the field to get them in scoring position. Philadelphia will need Foles to limit his mistakes against the Vikings, who will be looking to take advantage of any bad decision the quarterback makes on Sunday, if the Eagles want to win their second consecutive game as the underdog at home. INSIDE THE NFL guest analyst Brandon Marshall weighed in on this weekend’s NFC Championship game between the Vikings and Eagles. Marshall, along with Ray Lewis, Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason and James Brown break down this and other NFL storylines all season long each Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET on Showtime’s Inside The NFL. Credit: Jamie Squire/Getty Images Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles – 6:40 PM ET Sunday CBS Local Sports: Atlanta had mixed results running the ball against the Eagles last weekend- Tevin Coleman found a lot of running room, while Devonta Freeman was completely shut down. How will the Vikings be able to establish the run game against Philadelphia’s top-ranked run defense? Brandon Marshall: The thing that makes the Vikings offense special is the offense [itself]. It’s not their passing attack or running game [specifically]- it’s all interconnected. It all works together. The passing plays look like running plays, and the running plays look like passing plays. A lot of teams will run an action pass, but they set up that play by using a running play that looks like that to get the defenders to step up to the line of scrimmage. [This is done] in order to get the space behind the linebackers and even the secondary at times. The thing that makes the Vikings offense special is the offense, and how everything looks the same. CBS Local Sports: Minnesota allowed Drew Brees to throw for almost 300 yards and three touchdowns on Sunday. How will the Vikings defense limit Nick Foles, who completed 76.7 percent of his passes for 246 yards against the Falcons? Brandon Marshall: That’s Drew Brees. One thing that we know is that Drew Brees throws it all over the field. Coach Payton and the Saints are not afraid to do that, and everyone knows that. Brees is special. This weekend is a totally different scheme and totally different ballgame. It will be a challenge for the Eagles to find holes in Minnesota’s defense. They run a lot of zone. They even play man-to-man. It’s going to be important for them to figure out what Minnesota’s doing pre-snap. If Nick Foles can do that, he’ll have a good chance of finding some holes. But it will be extremely hard [against the Vikings defense]. Credit: Abbie Parr/Getty Images CBS Local Sports: How can the Eagles defense slow down Case Keenum and this Minnesota offense that seems to be firing on all cylinders? Brandon Marshall: The game is not going to be won on the offensive side of the ball. It’s going to be a defensive battle [with two of the NFL’s best defenses]. Case Keenum, when he’s called on, makes some huge plays. He’s done it all year. But it shouldn’t be difficult for the Eagles to put a great game plan together to slow him down. CBS Local Sports: With the Eagles looking for their second consecutive upset win at home and the Vikings coming off the “Minneapolis Miracle,” does either team have an edge in momentum leading up to this NFC Championship showdown? Brandon Marshall: Not in momentum, but Philadelphia definitely has the edge [overall] because they have the home field advantage. They’re home, and [Lincoln Financial Field] is probably one of the most difficult places to play in the National Football League.
