Remember Patrick Witt? The Yale qb we reported on when he made the mistake of choosing to play in the game we were going to instead of going to his Rhodes interview? Then it turned out his coach was a liar? Turns out he may have been lying too and he is accused of being a sexual assailant.
...that new york's fox 5 goofball anchor, greg kelly, is the son of NYPD commisioner, ray kelly??? me neither!
anyway, that guy's a rapist. allegedly.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office is investigating an accusation that Greg Kelly, a local television anchor who is a son of Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, raped a young woman in Lower Manhattan last October, law enforcement officials and Greg Kelly’s lawyer said Wednesday.
Police detectives initially interviewed the woman late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, one of the law enforcement officials said.
But because of the conflict presented by the Police Department’s investigating a sexual assault accusation against the commissioner’s son, the case was handed over on Wednesday to the office of the Manhattan district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr.
Mr. Kelly, 43, denied the accusation in a statement by his lawyer, Andrew M. Lankler, that was released Wednesday evening. (via)
The Giants and the Patriots will meet on the field at Super Bowl XLVI, but when NBC goes to commercial, John Williams will meet dubstep and other modern music styles.
Intending to reflect the epic nature of this NFL championship, a rematch of the 2008 Super Bowl, NBC commissioned composer Joel Beckerman to create an orchestral-rock hybrid of Williams' 2006 piece "Wide Receiver" for use during the game. Using a rock rhythm section and a 45-piece orchestra -- 90 percent of the musicians were from the New York Philharmonic -- Beckerman recorded a new 90-second version of "Wide Receiver" and newly composed music Thursday at New York's Avatar Studio for the Feb. 5 Super Bowl.
Beckerman described one version as dubstep, another as bombastic rock with percussion, and a third simply as "a percolating soundtrack." It's titled "Epic Matchup." "This year's game is expected to be the most watched telecast in history so NBC wanted it to be much bigger (than earlier versions)," Beckerman said shortly after the session concluded. "I did (an arrangement) in '09 that was much more a fanfare. This is more of an epic soundtrack." (via)
