Tomorrow’s game: – 8:40 p.m: Arnett Gardens vs Humble Lion – Anthony Spaulding Complex Today’s Games: “It has to change. We had a good game against Montego Bay on Monday last and should have won. “The fact is that we are on our way up. The last five games we only lost one, a contentious game against Arnett Gardens, and the five games before, we lost four and drew one so our record bears that out,” Speid explained. Rivoli United, despite their position on the table, are a competitive unit and can get the better of any team in the league on their day. They are capable of scoring goals and with Cory Burke, the second leading scorer in the league on nine, they have a player who will cause problems for any team. A major weak point for Rivoli is the number of goals they concede. Their 19 goals conceded are only better than the promoted UWI FC and Boys’ Town, who struggled at the start of the season. This situation could benefit Cavalier’s leading scorer, Chevone Marsh. A place above the relegation zone is not where Rudolph Speid, coach of Cavalier, thought his team would have been at this stage of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), and this could get worse if they achieve any other result but win when they play away at bottom of the table Rivoli United. Blessed with talent but plagued by injuries, Cavalier will have to go against their season form book to affect their fortunes positively. “We have issues. There are injuries and other things, but I think we are getting over them, but one of the things we have to be aware of going into this game is that we tend to play well against the better teams and have bad results against teams below us. So based on our record, it is going to be a difficult game,” said Speid, summing up his team’s situation. Add to that the fact that Cavalier have not won a single away game this season and the reasons for Cavalier to worry increase. Speid, however, puts a positive spin on things. -3 p.m: Montego Bay United vs Boys’ Town – Wespow Park – 3 p.m: Portmore United vs UWI FC – Juici Park, Clarendon – 3 p.m: Rivoli vs Cavalier – Drax Hall, St Ann – 3 p.m: Tivoli Gardens vs Reno – Edward Seaga Stadium – 3 p.m: Waterhouse vs Harbour View – Drewsland Stadium POSITIVE SPIN
Move over, Spidey! A big ogre named Shrek is moving into movie theaters today, and he’s never played second fiddle to anyone at the box office. While I seriously doubt “Shrek the Third” can achieve an opening weekend that tops the record $151 million “Spider-Man 3” managed to ring up just two weeks ago, the third installment of the franchise is a shoo-in to cross the $100 million mark by day three. With a running time of 1 hour and 21 minutes, “Shrek” is a full hour shorter than the latest Spidey film and can cram in more showings in a single day. But the web-slinger had all those midnight showings and an unprecedented number of some 11,000 screens, which were key to being able to set the weekend record, along with a slew of other benchmarks. Even if “Shrek the Third” does fall short of setting an opening weekend record, it is still likely to outgross “Spider-Man 3” over the long run. Consider this: “Shrek 2” grossed $441.2 million domestically in 2004 (third all-time) after an opening weekend of $108 million. The first “Shrek” opened to $42.3 million and went on to gross $267.6 million. “Spider-Man” opened to a then-record $114.8 million in 2002 and took in $403.7 million (seventh all-time), while “Spider-Man 2” had an $88.1 million opening and finished its run at $373.58 domestically. “Shrek the Third” has only a week to dominate with “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” out May 25. MOVIE MONEY: Looking for a “free” movie ticket? All ya gotta do is buy a DVD with “movie money” enclosed. Wondering how? If you buy either of the first two “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies or any number of other Disney DVDs this week at Best Buy, you get a movie certificate to get into “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” In Universal Home Video’s new, souped-up, unrated DVD of “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” there’s a movie pass to see Universal’s summer comedy “Knocked Up.” Beware: The movie passes usually expire two to three weeks after the movie is released in theaters. MOVIE A LA MODE: The critically acclaimed “Waitress” isn’t going into semiwide release (400-500 locations) until Memorial Day weekend. Fox Searchlight has been trying to build word-of-mouth by slowly rolling out the movie about a young woman (Keri Russell) who bakes pies as a way to cope with her unhappy life. And if word-of-mouth isn’t enough, how ’bout pie-in-mouth? On Mother’s Day, moviegoers at some showings were treated to an actual piece of pie. All I gotta say is … I love pie.
