Barcelona, Bayern Munich’s Twitter Banter Makes You Want to Fast-Forward to Game

It’s part of the build-up to Champions League football these days—middling levels of Twitter banter between the club’s social accounts, and Barcelona and Bayern Munich have duly got involved before their semi-final on Tuesday.

The exchange begins with Bayern Munich tweeting Thiago, a former Barca player, pulling off some tricks.

Barcelona responded:

Next, a change of tack: Bayern hit Barcelona in the trophy cabinet:

But, of course, Barca had a response ready:

How about celebrating things?

Barca had that covered:

Can we just get to kick-off as quickly as possible?

NYPD Officer Shot In Head Remains Critical But Stable

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — An NYPD police officer remains in critical but stable condition two days after being shot in the head while sitting in an unmarked car in Queens.

District Attorney Richard Brown said Sunday that 25-year-old Officer Brian Moore was in a coma and “fighting for his life.”

Moore underwent surgery for what court papers described as “severe injuries to his skull and brain.”

The suspect, Demetrius Blackwell, was ordered held without bail Sunday. He didn’t enter a plea to charges of attempted murder.

Prosecutors plan to present the case to a grand jury.

Blackwell’s court-appointed lawyer says his client denies the charges.

Police say Blackwell fired at Moore and his partner as they sat in plainclothes in an unmarked police car Saturday night. They stopped him after seeing him tugging at his waistband.

Mets’ Bats In Funk, But ‘There’s No Reason To Press’

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Weekend series against Washington and its stingy starting rotation. Wrong time for the New York Mets to hit a serious slump at the plate.

Doug Fister pitched the Nationals to their second straight 1-0 win at Citi Field on Sunday, breezing through his latest dominant outing against the skidding Mets before handing a lead to the bullpen.

“We’re not getting big hits, that’s for sure. The middle of our lineup, we got neutralized pretty much today,” Mets manager Terry Collins said.

Ryan Zimmerman blooped an RBI single in the first inning, and the Nationals took three of four from the NL East leaders to make it 17 victories in their last 19 tries in Queens. A heavy favorite to win the division, Washington (12-14) has won five of six following a six-game losing streak.

“The offense isn’t going. Pretty good pitching staff over there. I think it’s a combination of both,” cleanup man Michael Cuddyer said. “We ran into two guys the last two days that pitched really, really well, kept the balls off the barrel, and we didn’t help ourselves. It’s a bad combination.”

Matt Thornton struck out Lucas Duda with two runners in scoring position in the eighth, and Aaron Barrett whiffed Cuddyer to end the inning. Drew Storen pitched a perfect ninth for his seventh save.

“We haven’t been able to get the big hit,” Cuddyer said. “When we were winning games last week, we were getting the big hit.”

It was the first time in franchise history, dating to the team’s Montreal debut in 1969, the Nationals won consecutive 1-0 games, according to STATS.

Prior to Gio Gonzalez’s victory Saturday night, saved by Storen, the Nationals had not won 1-0 on the road since May 15, 2008, also against the Mets.

Fister (2-1) threw 68 of 89 pitches for strikes before a quick hook from manager Matt Williams following a one-out double in the seventh. Tanner Roark, one of four relievers who combined to finish the five-hitter, kept New York off the scoreboard.

Fister allowed those five hits and walked none while improving to 5-0 with a 0.82 ERA in five starts against the Mets, who have dropped five of six. They are 3-7 since their 11-game winning streak.

“We’re still what, (six) games over (.500), still top of the division right now?” Cuddyer said. “There’s no reason to press.”

Dillon Gee (0-2) was chased in the sixth. He has lasted at least five innings in 51 consecutive starts, breaking the previous club record held by Dwight Gooden (1987-89). It is the longest active streak in the majors.

Gee faded quickly after working hard in the middle innings. He was pulled with the bases loaded following his fifth walk, but Alex Torres momentarily rescued the Mets by striking out three straight to prevent any damage.

“I thought that was going to give us a huge energy boost and we could come back in and get some runs, but we just couldn’t get squared up,” Collins said.

Gee said he owes Torres “way more than a steak dinner.”

“I feel terrible that I left him in that spot, but he was unbelievable. He came in and just dominated,” Gee said.

The right-hander walked his first batter and New York, shaky on the infield, squandered two chances to turn a double play. That proved costly when Zimmerman poked a two-out RBI single off the end of his broken bat on an 0-2 pitch.

Fister retired 14 of 15 before Gee’s two-out single in the fifth.

“We haven’t hit the ball over the last 10 games like we can or like we should,” Collins said.

Cuddyer robbed Zimmerman of a fourth-inning home run with a leaping grab at the 358-foot sign in left.

“Probably the most un-athletic catch of a home run ball you’ll ever see,” Cuddyer said. “I was probably just as shocked as anybody else.”

ZERO HOUR

The last time the Mets had lost 1-0 on consecutive days was Sept. 4-5, 1990, at St. Louis and Pittsburgh, STATS said. The previous team to defeat New York 1-0 on back-to-back days was the Chicago Cubs in April 1973 at Shea Stadium. Ferguson Jenkins beat Tom Seaver in the first game in a matchup of future Hall of Famers.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Nationals: CF Denard Span (abdomen) was back in the leadoff spot after missing two games because of soreness and fatigue.

Mets: Struggling SS Wilmer Flores was rested for the second consecutive game. “We’ve got to get his mind straight first,” Collins said. “We’re just hoping that a couple days off kind of refreshes him and gets him back on track.” Ruben Tejada started at shortstop again and went 0 for 3.

SOMEONE CATCH THAT KID!

In the most adorable moment of the day, a little girl wearing an oversized David Wright jersey took off in a beeline for shallow center field during a fan-friendly promotion between innings. A ballpark worker finally chased down the youngster and ushered her in the right direction, toward third base.

UP NEXT

Nationals: Following a 5-5 road trip in NL East cities, Jordan Zimmermann (2-2) pitches Monday night at home in the opener of a three-game series against Miami.

Mets: Monday and Thursday are off days for the Mets, bookending a two-game interleague series versus visiting Baltimore. Bartolo Colon (4-1, 3.31 ERA) starts Tuesday night against Bud Norris (1-2, 12.18).

Texas shooting: Two gunmen shot dead outside Muhammad exhibition – rolling coverage

The American Freedom Defense Initiative paid for 40 police officers to work as security at their Prophet Mohammed cartoon drawing competition, Dallas News reports, shedding light on how the gunmen who attacked the event were killed so quickly.

The paper, which had a reporter present described “thick security that included Garland police, school district security and private guards”.

Attention is focusing on a tweet sent 15 minutes before the first reports of the shooting from a now-suspended account with the username “Shariah is Life”, in which an individual indicates he his preparing to make an attack. It includes the hashtag #texasattack.

The writer pledges allegiance (bay’ah) to Amirul Mu’mineen, Arabic for “Commander of the Faithful”, before adding: “May Allah accept us mujahideen”.

Here’s a short summary of events as they stand at the moment:

This audio is a brief excerpt from the immediate aftermath of the shooting inside the American Freedom Defense Initiative event in Garland, Texas.

It appears that police are still attempting to determine whether any explosive devices are inside the car of the two gunmen.

Journalists and members of the public have been evacuated from the area, so information from the scene remains scant.

Here’s a short video from Reuters with an update on the current situation:

The Dallas Fort Worth scanner site aggregates information from the radio feeds of emergency services across Texas. The site has created this map with rolling updates of information.

NOW #GarlandShooting Law enforcement is investigating a shooting at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland off Naaman… https://t.co/5x3xmGgLas

Update #GarlandShooting Perimeter has been requested. Please avoid this area. https://t.co/5x3xmGgLas

Update #GarlandShooting Businesses in the general area will be shut down. https://t.co/5x3xmGgLas

Update #GarlandShooting Evacuation ordered for the Walmart near the Curtis Culwell Center. Avoid this area! https://t.co/5x3xmGgLas

My colleague Bridie Jabour has just filed this explainer on the American Freedom Defense Initiative:

A co-founder of the group behind the contest to award $10,000 for the best cartoon depiction of Mohammed, is a New Yorker who runs a blog that campaigns to stop the “Islamification” of America.

Pamela Geller, used her blog Atlas Shrugs to declare “this is war” in the hours after the shooting of two gunmen at the contest, which had been organised by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, a group co-founded by Geller and Robert Spencer in 2010.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders also posted this image shortly after the shooting.

The contest depicting the prophet Muhammad was organised by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Here is some prior background to the group and their activities in the US in the Washington Post:

New Yorkers are used to aggressive advertising. Banners for breast implants. Billboards for condoms. But a federal judge’s ruling has opened the door for far more controversial posters on buses and subways across the city.

“Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah,” reads one such ad next to the image of a young man in a checkered headscarf. “That’s His Jihad. What’s yours?”

Dutch politician Geert Wilders was also attending the event in Garland. He also posted this update on twitter shortly after the shooting:

Shots fired at Garland Mohammed cartoon free speech event. I just left the building after speeching. #garlandshooting

At the moment the bomb squad is now assessing the car driven by the two gunmen. There are reports from reporters at the scene of explosions that have been heard coming from the location.

BREAKING: Explosion heard as bomb teams worked around the vehicle police say was driven by two gunmen @NBCDFW pic.twitter.com/HN4zTb9zMR

Police can’t tell us about what happened yet but we heard an explosion. Can’t see much activity from our vantage point n parking lot @NBCDFW

Nor do we know identity of the shooters or the motivation for the attack. However, the shooting occurred outside a centre where the American Freedom Defense Initiative was hosting an exhibition and contest for cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad.

One of the organisers of the event, Pamela Geller, has directly linked the shooting to the event, and said it was an attack on free speech:

This is a war. This is war on free speech. What are we going to do? Are we going to surrender to these monsters?

Two men with rifles and backpacks attacked police outside our event. A cop was shot; his injuries are not life-threatening, thank Gd. Please keep him in your prayers.

At this point in time we still don’t have a full account of the circumstances of the shootings. A number of Texas officials have now provided some updates on the event.

This account from Douglas Athas, the mayor of Garland, is the most detailed account we have at the moment:

Two men in a car tried to drive into the parking lot, jumped out with automatic rifles. Started firing at an unarmed schools security officer who was hit in the leg. He was transported to the hospital.

The first suspect was shot immediately. The second was shot and wounded, reached for his backback and, of course, officers not knowing any idea what was in the back pack, shot him again and he was killed.

Garland Police are also warning people to avoid the Culwell Event Centre and surrounding area.

Garland Police are asking people to avoid the area of the Culwell Event Center in North Garland.

The governor of Texas, Greg Abbott has released this statement on the shooting:

Texas officials are actively investigating to determine the cause and scope of the senseless attack in Garland, Texas. This is a crime that was quickly ended thanks to the swift action by Garland law enforcement. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all those affected tonight.

Here’s a statement on the shooting released on the Garland Independent School District website:

Earlier this evening, during an event at the Curtis Culwell Center, two men exited a vehicle and began shooting at Garland ISD Security Officer Bruce Joiner. Garland Police, who were on scene, returned fire at the two men, killing both. Officer Joiner was shot in the ankle. He was transported to a local hospital, treated and released. Our thoughts are with him and his family.

Garland Police have secured the area around the Cuwlell Center and Naaman Forest High School. The district is working with Garland PD and will keep you informed as information becomes available.

On Sunday evening in Texas two male gunmen were shot dead outside an exhibition at the Curtis Culwell Centre in Dallas, Texas.

We’ll be delivering rolling updates of events as they unfold throughout the night in the US. Here’s a summary of events so far:

While in production for his forthcoming documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, director Brett Morgen unearthed a plethora of unreleased material created by the late rock star – ranging from home recordings he made with then-wife Courtney Love, to demos from his former punk band Fecal Matter. In a recent interview with Bedford + Bowery, Morgen revealed that he, along with several other of the film’s crew members, will edit down the hundreds of hours of discovered recordings into a new Kurt Cobain album, set to release sometime this summer.

“It will feel like you’re kind of hanging out with Kurt Cobain on a hot summer day in Olympia, Washington as he fiddles about. It’s going to really surprise people,” Morgen said, adding that the album will be “just Kurt and you’re going to hear him do things you never expected to come out of him.”

Stay tuned for the album’s official release date and be sure to check out Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck‘s premiere on premium cable channel HBO on May 4.
