News Wrap: Justice Department agrees to release some Mueller evidence

From: PBSNewsHour
Duration: 05:25

In our Monday news wrap, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler says the Justice Department has agreed to turn over some underlying evidence from the Mueller report. The move delays any House effort to hold Attorney General William Barr in criminal contempt. Also, Hong Kong says it’s moving forward with its proposed China extradition law, despite weekend protests that drew hundreds of thousands.

Does Napoleon Jinnies have our attention?

Abso-hello-yes.

The dancer, who along with Quenton Peron happens to the be the first male cheerleader to ever perform at the Super Bowl (no big deal), got his pride on in spectacularly choreographed fashion, filmed by Anthony Om and beautifully edited by Moriah King.

And we’re feeling every single piece of it.

How Estefania Banini’s creativity stymied Japan in Argentina’s first-ever World Cup point

An inferior Argentina squad went toe-to-toe with a World Cup contender. It has Estefania Banini’s fearlessness to thank.

So many times during Monday’s World Cup match, Argentina held firm against flood after flood of Japan offensives, winning the ball somewhere in the box before sending it out to Estefania Banini on the left wing. Banini would drive the ball forward, and inevitably get swarmed by a horde of defenders.

Banini is one of those rare players who can puzzle defenders. What seem like sure tackles against her become traps of public embarrassment. But the sheer number of defenders who hounded her made sure she couldn’t conjure her usual magic. Instead, she bought as much time as possible, pushed the ball into Japan’s half, and tried to win throw-ins and fouls whenever there was nowhere else she could go.

This was Argentina’s plan all along en route to winning its first ever point at the World Cup in a 0-0 draw. The difference in quality between it and Japan was so massive that Argentina seemed less concerned about succeeding than surviving. And one of the most biggest keys to that mission was Banini, who used her creativity to frustrate rather than confuse.

Japan is a contender to win the World Cup, finished as runner-up in 2015, and won the whole thing in 2011. Argentina, meanwhile, lost three straight games in their appearance in 2007, including a record-setting 0-11 loss against Germany in the tournament opener. The problem for Argentina, as it is with many of the World Cup’s most underwhelming teams, is rooted in institutional sabotage and neglect. The women’s national team was inactive until two years ago, the Argentine Football Association showing no interest in funding and supporting a women’s team until that point.

It was only in April of this year that the AFA decided to professionalize women’s football in the country. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that Argentina is lacking in quality, which is why they played so defensively. A style that worked to their credit.

Banini was clearly a higher caliber player than her teammates. While the others struggled to keep the ball, complete passes under pressure, or remain composed while trying to take the ball forward, Banini was only contained because Japan’s defenders were committed to stopping her, in turn killing any chance that Argentina could threaten going forward.

The match became Banini vs. The World, and Banini held her own. Soccer isn’t supposed to work like that — at least, not completely. But Banini knew what her objective was: keep the ball away from Japan, give her teammates a break from defending, and take up as much time as possible while looking for fleeting opportunities to do the impossible and score.

Playing to control the damage done by a superior opponent — the almost futile nature of the mission, often going one against three or four defenders — is a great way to see what a player is truly capable of. Not in how they play within a team, mind you, but what their limit is as an individual in terms of ability and stamina. While it’s a difficult burden to accept, Banini had total freedom to do whatever she wanted on the ball.

Her performance was full of runs where she would beat the first and second defender, only to be dispossessed by the third. She would be surrounded by three or four defenders, and find her way out with a nutmeg, a drop of the shoulder, or an Iniesta-like croqueta move. Even when she was tired towards the end of the match, she used her skill to bait defenders into fouling her, buying time for her team and giving herself a chance to catch her breath.

At one point near the end of the match, while moving the ball from one wing to the other and being chased by three defenders, Banini got careless (perhaps because she was exhausted) and gave up the ball. But before the defender could turn and play it to a teammate, Banini tackled her and won the ball back. Then she dribbled to the touchline, did a few step-overs, and passed back to a teammate, once again running precious seconds off the clock.

That Argentina won its first-ever point in the World Cup is a testament to a complete team performance. It managed to hold Japan to a draw it was organized, and everyone played their roles to perfection. But perhaps no one shined as brightly as Banini, who knew she would be hounded wherever she went.

It’s a testament to her singular ability that under such circumstances, as part of a spirited-but-underpowered team, she put on a show against one of the best teams in the world.

Cody Barlow / Facebook

Oklahoman ally Cody Barlow decorated his pickup truck in a rainbow flag to show that “not all country boys are bigots.”

Wrote Barlow on Facebook: “Found a way to show my support for pride month. I simply bought rolls of brightly colored duct tape and ran them across my tailgate in the design of the pride flag, and added some mailbox letters.”

“This is important to me, not only because I have family and friends that are LGBTQ+, but also because countless people have dealt with hatred and judgement simply for who they are, and/or who they love, for far too long,” added Barlow. “Obviously doing this isn’t going to change the minds of those who are intolerant, but hopefully it can help drown out the hatred with love.”

“I live in a rural area in Oklahoma, surrounded by small towns in every direction, and I’m sure this is not a very welcome message around here,” he explained, “but this is going to be displayed on my truck for the entire month of June in support of pride month. I don’t think it is necessary to say, but for all intents and purposes I am a straight man that grew up here in Oklahoma. I love taking my truck mudding, going fishing, swimming at the lake, floating the river, and several other ‘country’ activities. It doesn’t matter what negativity I receive for supporting this. I hope that this can help even the slightest bit to encourage and support at least one person that needs it. I hope everyone finds their inner strength to finally live life loud and proud without regard for the negativity of ignorant people. Happy pride month!”

Those sweet, poor fools

To say the 2019 Baltimore Orioles’ pitching staff has been allowing dingers at a historic rate would be tragically shortchanging just how magnificently they’ve mastered the art. They’re on pace to allow 317 home runs, which would just squeak past the current record of 258 by the ‘16 Reds. The level of ease with which batters have gotten to pad their home run total vs. them is unlike anything I’ve ever seen, and it’s not even close. So they love allowing homers, and I love numbers — here are my favorites, with some bullet points to provide a bit of perspective:

Making History

They’ve allowed 127 home runs thru 65 games

• No one else has ever given up more than 111 thru 65 (done by the ‘96 Tigers … the ‘16 Reds had allowed 107 at this point)

• They could allow zero (0) homers for each of their next eight (8) games and still own the record for most home runs ever surrendered thru 73 games (even though in reality they haven’t had a homerless streak this millennium longer than six games), with the ‘16 Reds having allowed 119 thru their 73rd game

They allowed 5+ home runs in 7 of their first 50 games

• Only the ’99 Rockies (5) and ’01 Giants (4) have ever done so in more than three of their first 50 games

• No one but the ‘16 Reds has had an entire season allowing 5+ homers in more than 7 games

• These ’19 Orioles did so six times in April alone

• In all of MLB history entering this year, there were only 25 instances of a team allowing 5+ homers in back-to-back games. Then the Orioles did so twice in the first few weeks of 2019 (April 10-11 + April 26-27)

They allowed 69 homers in April

• No one else has ever given up more than 57 homers in a calendar month (done in May 1964 by the A’s … the ‘16 Reds didn’t allow more than 48 homers in a calendar month)

Stuff to keep an eye on down the stretch

They’re on pace to have allowed 174 home runs by the All-Star break

• A team allowing even 150 homers by the break has only ever happened once (154 by the ’16 Reds)

• In 2014, the Rockies’ 173 home runs allowed for the entire season were the most in the bigs

They’ve married by far the all-time worst starting rotation at surrendering home runs with by far the all-time worst bullpen at surrendering home runs

• They’re on pace to allow 192 homers from starters (current record is 169 done by the ’87 Angels — though the good good baseball boys in Seattle are also on pace to allow 181 homers from starting pitchers this season)

• They’re on pace to allow 125 homers from relievers (current record is 103 done by the ’16 Reds — though this year’s Tigers bullpen is so far keeping up with the O’s)

They’re on pace to have not one, not two, but three pitchers (David Hess, Dan Straily, Dylan Bundy) each allow 35+ home runs

• Only the ’01 Padres (Kevin Jarvis, Bobby Jones), ’00 Cubs (Jon Lieber, Kevin Tapani), and ’86 Twins (Bert Blyleven, Frank Viola) have ever had even two such pitchers

• Only the ’97 Angels have ever had three pitchers each allow more than 30 homers

• In 2014, not a single MLB pitcher allowed even 30 homers

And as a bonus last thing, the Yankees’ Gleyber Torres had a 29-at-bat stretch this season vs. the O’s in which he provided a souvenir to a fan in the outfield bleachers 10 times … just edging out teammate Gary Sanchez, who had a 30-at-bat stretch this season vs. the O’s in which he provided 9 such gifts.

The cast of Rotterdam / Facebook

A theatre in Southampton, UK canceled a performance of Rotterdam, an Olivier Award-winning play about an LGBT couple, after two of the play’s actors were assaulted in a hate crime in which stones were thrown at them from a moving car.

Lucy Jane Parkinson said they were kissing their girlfriend Rebecca Banatvala, when the attack happened.

Said the play’s producers in a tweet: “Two actors were assaulted today on their way to work at the Nuffield Southampton Theatres. The assailants verbally abused them and threw stones from their car window, one of which struck an actor in the face. They have sustained only minor injuries but are hugely shaken from this cowardly, homophobic hate crime. The Production have requested anyone with relevant information should contact the local police and assist with the enquiry.”

Said one of the assaulted actors: “The attack happened because we were embracing. There’s no mistake that this was a homophobic hate crime. It was a cowardly attack as it was a moving car. Our community shouldn’t have to tolerate this. This is why we have Pride. We should take all steps we can in the education system to help to eradicate this aggressive ignorance from strangers to other strangers.”

The BBC reports: ‘After initially requesting that the police did not take any further action, the couple have since made a report. A Hampshire police spokeswoman said the matter is under investigation and appealed for witnesses. “We have received a report from a third party relating to an incident which happened on Hill Lane, Southampton. “It has been reported that homophobic abuse was shouted at two women, and stones thrown at them, by a the occupants of a passing car,” she said.’
