David Gilmour is in the middle of his first tour in North America since 2006. After playing three shows in Los Angeles, the Pink Floyd guitarist had one more stop in the City of Angels; the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live. Much like his current setlists, Gilmour was able to perform both a classic from the Pink Floyd catalog and a song from his newly-released solo album, Rattle That Lock. For the former, Gilmour chose the title track to Floyd’s 1975 album, Wish You Were Here. For the latter, Gilmour chose the title track to his own solo album, delighting fans with an edition of “Rattle That Lock.”You can watch videos of both songs performed, below:“Wish You Were Here”“Rattle That Lock”
Legends general manager Rich Jacobs has a game day prediction: 2,000.That is, he expects about 2,000 people to pass through the doors of Legends of Notre Dame this Saturday, a relatively light crowd due to this weekend being Labor Day weekend. Next weekend, for the Georgia football game, he expects about 3,500 guests, not counting the 500 who normally stop in for the game watch and tailgate.Since 2003, Legends has been providing food and an alternate place to watch football games for fans from all over. Some may remember Legends as the former Senior Bar — a seniors-only, student run but University-backed bar known for good times, but not necessarily its profitability. In 2003, the University reimagined the space as a restaurant and expanded the building to add a nightclub.Jacobs said visiting Lengends is a trip down memory lane for many alumni. They are usually able to visualize everything when they are told the raised area of seating in the dining room used to be the stage, Jacobs said.“It puts a context to the memories,” he said.On an average football Saturday, Legends will serve around 3,000 guests in the sit-down restaurant, Jacobs said. They typically use 25 cases of French fries on game day alone — the same amount they use in an entire week otherwise. The high volume of food needed, along with the fact that most guests want a quicker, less extravagant meal on their way to the game, caused Jacobs and executive chef Josh Maron to streamline the game day menu.“We’ve got a limited menu that we run for football,” Maron said. “We’ve got some really popular specials and some new and exciting items.”Some popular items include classic tailgate entrees and all of the burger varieties Legends offers — ranging from a peanut butter burger to a classic cheddar cheeseburger. Additionally, the restaurant will be continuing some of its most popular August specials into September, Maron said.For fans who come to Notre Dame hoping to experience the famous atmosphere, Jacobs said, Legends is a great place to do so. Visitors can watch the game on one of the 23 flat screen TVs throughout the restaurant or on the 144-inch screen in the club side of the building — where Legends holds an indoor tailgate and game watch fans can attend for $15, Jacobs said.“We call it the backfield. There will be burgers, brats [and] pulled pork for people that come in right before and just want to grab tailgate-style food but don’t want to sit down,” he said. “We offer local drafts, craft cocktails in the shadow of the stadium — a full menu for people who don’t have the tailgate setup. We always say it’s the best place to watch the game if you don’t have a ticket.”Fans can also walk to the outdoor area to hear cheers from Notre Dame Stadium roar and watch the jets fly over, Jacobs said.“You’re not in the stadium but you get to see [the game] in HDTV,” he said. “It’s almost like you’re in the stadium. We’re as close as you can get.”Last year, Legends introduced a tailgate catering program, through which tailgaters can place orders and have the restaurant prepare their pre-game celebration food.“Now, not only do we service the guests in the restaurant, we go to the parking lots too,” Jacobs said.After games, Legends usually hosts a post-game tailgate in the club half of the building, where traditional tailgate food is served. True to their tagline of “always a party, never a cover,” the event is free for anyone, Jacobs said. The restaurant is open from 8 a.m. to midnight on game days, and later for night games.Over the years, Jacobs has managed restaurants in eight different states and many cities, but said game days at Notre Dame are unlike any he has ever experienced before. He recalled a particularly moving experience with a 90-year-old lifelong Notre Dame fan named Eleanor, whose family surprised her with tickets to her first Notre Dame football game.“Her reaction on Facebook went viral on the internet. We offered her breakfast at Legends featuring her favorite blueberry pancakes,” Jacobs said. “Reggie Brooks — a Notre Dame football legend — joined us and signed a football for her. Even though the Irish lost that day, her family expressed their gratitude for her priceless experience.”Jacobs considers it an honor to serve guests in the shadows of the historic Notre Dame Stadium, he said.“If I may reference a quote from former coach Lou Holtz, ‘Those who have experienced Notre Dame, no explanation is necessary. Those who have not, no explanation is sufficient,’” he said. “Coach Holtz was referencing the hospitality and truly unique experience that Notre Dame offers to countless numbers of alumni and guests each year.”Tags: Football Friday Feature, game day experience, Legends of Notre Dame, tailgating

Cheshire’s Cath Rawthore has marked her first season of senior golf by playing her way into the England side for the European senior ladies’ team championship at Bled, Slovenia, from 3-7 September. Cath (image © Leaderboard Photography) is the only new cap in the team and will join established internationals Caroline Berry, Sue Dye, Amanda Mayne, Janet Melville and Chris Quinn. The reserve is Karen Lobb from Northamptonshire County. The team will be captained for the first time by Pat West of Spalding, Lincolnshire. Rebecca Wood, the women’s Performance Manager for England Golf, commented: “We are delighted that Pat has agreed to captain this team. She is a very experienced player and a great supporter of senior golf. She will be a huge asset.” Pat’s aim will be to guide the experienced team to an elusive gold medal. This championship was started in 2006 and England has competed every year, apart from 2011, winning three silver medals and one bronze. Chris Quinn has played in each of those teams and this will be her seventh appearance in this event. Sue Dye will be playing for the sixth time, Janet Melville for the fifth and Caroline Berry for the third. The players: Caroline Berry (Bromborough, Cheshire) is a past winner of the English senior amateur and of the English women’s stroke play championships. Most recently she was third in this year’s senior stroke play, signing off with a final round of three-under par 69. Sue Dye (Delamere Forest, Cheshire) won the English senior stroke play title for the second time in June. She has also twice been the English senior amateur champion and runner-up in the British. Amanda Mayne (Saltford, Somerset) is a past Somerset champion and the current county senior champion. She made her senior debut last year and, with a series of good results, played her way into England’s 2012 Home Internationals team. Janet Melville (Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire) is the English senior amateur champion and has twice won the senior stroke play title. Her personal roll of honour includes three British ladies’ championships: the open, the stroke play and the match play. Chris Quinn (Hockley, Hampshire) has won six English senior titles and one British senior championship. This year she was runner-up in both the English amateur and stroke play championships. Cath Rawthore (Sale, Cheshire) is a Cheshire county player who is playing her first season of senior golf. She reached the semi-finals of the English senior amateur and was 12th in the senior stroke play, earning herself fourth spot in the senior order of merit and her place in the team for the Europeans. For the first time this year the team has been selected using the new senior order of merit. The top six players after the two English senior women’s championships have qualified for the European team. The England team for the Senior Home Internationals, which take place in October, will be the top seven players on the order of merit after the British senior championship at Royal Portrush in September. 5 Aug 2013 New cap joins senior ladies’ European team
ALEX SOLIS, KERI BELLE, THIRD: “I had a perfect trip . . . She ran hard, she just didn’t get there.” NOTES: The winning owners are Kenji Morinata of Arcadia or Head of Plains Partners. DAVID MEAH, ASSISTANT TO RICHARD BALTAS, PAULINA’S LOVE, WINNER: “She’s special at this distance and even better when she gets a little time between races like we did here. Seven, eight weeks is a huge thing for her. Four or five weeks, she doesn’t fire like this, but seven, eight weeks and she can fire.“She had a perfect trip. I didn’t expect Flavien (Prat on Moanin) to go out like that (on the lead), but it’s OK. We came home in front and that’s all that matters at the end of the day.” GARY STEVENS, PAULINA’S LOVE, WINNER: “I’ve fallen in love with her. These guys have been so patient with her and have allowed Richard to do what he wants with her. She just keeps developing and getting better and better. She exploded at the eighth pole just like the last time and when I saw 12-1 on the morning line with an 88 Beyer number last time . . . that wasn’t right; she exploded that day.“I rode her with a lot of confidence, like she was the favorite. She minds, she lets me do what I want, whatever the pace scenario is. When she’s done, I’d like to take her home and put her in my backyard.” JOCKEY QUOTES KENT DESORMEAUX, STORMY LUCY, SECOND: “There wasn’t a straw in her path. She gave me a dream ride. She absolutely flew to the wire. The winner was a nose better today, that’s all. They were too good today.” TRAINER QUOTES
JOCKEY QUOTES RAFAEL BEJARANO, VALE DORI, WINNER: “She was definitely ready today. I knew Finest City would be tough but I was only thinking about the break. (Vale Dori) was more focused today, more consistent. She broke beautifully from the gate.“When I saw that Finest City didn’t want to go to the lead, I just took control of the race and took it from there.“She was really focused today and she showed me a big kick in the stretch. She was tough.“Today was the first time I think that she was pressured almost the whole race. She showed me a lot of power, a lot of heart. I don’t think she minds coming from behind but having a clean break, I just took it from there.“I thought that from the first jump Finest City would be fast and would be on the lead. When I saw that she didn’t really want to go and didn’t relax into the first turn, I just took control and took advantage of (Vale Dori’s) speed. I just tried to relax my horse.“These are two nice horses but since I had the lead, I had the advantage.“The last time I worked her, about a week ago, she worked really good, galloped out well. I knew she would be really good today but the only thing was the break. Last time she had a bad experience so we just wanted her to relax and I didn’t play with her too much in the gate.” TRAINERIAN KRULJAC, FINEST CITY, SECOND: “My filly ran her eyeballs out. Running second in a Grade I isn’t all bad. I’m happy with how she ran.” –30– NOTES: The winning owner is Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa al Maktoum. TYLER BAZE, FINEST CITY, SECOND: “She ran great. This is probably just a little too far for her but she ran really well. I give the winner credit, she’d never been headed before and we were head and head the whole way.”
