The Tony Award Winning musical, Memphis, is coming to the big screen. Last week performances were filmed with the intent of releasing it to a movie theater near you beginning this spring.

The production company behind it all is called Broadway Worldwide. From January 18-21 performances were filmed with HD cameras, and the edited result of all performances and tracks will be released to theaters soon.

The 2010 Tony Award Winner for best musical will be the first musical ever to hit movie theaters while still running on the Broadway stage. Starring in this uncommon event will be Chad Kimball and Montego Glover. Both actors received Tony Award nominations for their lead roles.

It is indeed rare for a Broadway production to be filmed and released as a cinematic experience. However, the intent is that the movie will draw extra attention to a national tour of the show which is coming soon. Additionally, the show in New York is only in its second year, so producers are hoping this movie event will spark some interest in the public.

Memphis the Musical is on Broadway now at the Shubert Theatre in New York City.

With less than a month to go until the 2011 NBA All-Star Game, all starters from the Eastern and Western Conferences have finally been announced. It’s only fitting that Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant had the highest amount of votes this year, and that the event will be played on the team’s home floor at the Staples Center.

Kobe received 2.4 million votes, and will serve as the Western Conference’s starting guard along with Chris Paul of the New Orleans Hornets. The Western Conference starters joining them will be forwards Carmelo Anthony of the Denver Nuggets and Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Yao Ming was also chosen as the team’s center, but unfortunately he is injured. His replacement will be chosen soon by David Stern, commissioner of the NBA. Leading the team will be head coach Greg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.

Also, it looks as though Kobe Bryant will have a fierce matchup on All-Star weekend against Miami Heat forward LeBron James. Joining LeBron as a forward for the Easter Conference will be Amare Stoudemire of the New York Knicks. Completing the starting players will be another Miami Heat player Dwayne Wade, Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, and Orlando Magic Center Dwight Howard.

The 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend will begin with the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, February 18, 2011. The All Star Game will be held on Sunday, February 20, 2011.

It looks like this year’s Super Bowl XLV may be the last National Football League game… or at least for a good chunk of time. The NFL and its players are in the midst of a labor dispute that could potentially cancel the 2011-2012 season altogether.

The executive vice-president of the NFL’s business operations, Eric Grubman, could be to blame. He is a former investment banker who seems to be the core of an important labor dispute. On March 3 the current collective bargaining agreement will expire, and until a new one is put into effect there will be no more NFL games.

There are a few specific issues concerning the potential 2011 lockout. The major issues between the NFL players and the owners all have to do with money. The first issue is of revenue, as in that all the owners are in favor of closer to a 50/50 split in total revenue. The owners also would like an 18-game schedule, and a rookie wage scale. The players are opposed to this, but would like to receive better healthcare.

Could it be that the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be the last Super Bowl for awhile? Don’t miss out on your chance to see a Super Bowl live, and in person! Super Bowl XLV will be held on Sunday, February 6, 2011 at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

UFC 128 to be held in March at the Prudential Center in New Jersey is rapidly approaching. As we get closer to the actual event date, more and more details are being disclosed. The final additions to the schedule of the event have all been announced, and will feature a whopping 12-card lineup.

The headliner, of course, will feature a UFC light heavyweight champion defending his title against a former title holder. Defending his title for the first time ever, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua will take on Rashad Evans on Saturday, March 19.

This co-main event will also feature a fight that could determine the top UFC bantamweight title contender. Former World Extreme Cage-Fighting champions Eddie Wineland and Urijah Faber will battle it out for their shot at being the best contender against current UFC champ, Dominick Cruz.

There are 10 more bouts that will complete this 12-card lineup. A bout between middleweights Dan Miller and Nick Catone will have fans cheering excitedly behind them as they are both natives of New Jersey. They both have the home field advantage, but we’ll have to see who will be able to come out on top.

UFC 128 will be coming to the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, March 19, 2011.

On Monday night, Pitt destroyed Syracuse’s perfect 18-0 start with a 74-66 victory over the Orange. The game took place as part of a special in college basketball on Martin Luther King Day, and was perhaps the most exciting of the day. It was an epic Big East Battle, as both teams were vying for the chance to become a No. 1 seed in March.

No. 5 Pitt now has a 19-0 lead, while No. 3 Syracuse had their undefeated start ruined in their only regular season game against Panthers. Since 2001, the Panthers are now 12-3 against Syracuse. However, since Pitt was ale to gain complete possession of first place, this win was especially important.

The Pittsburgh Panthers are now off to a 6-0 start, their first in Pitt’s Big East history. If Pittsburgh continues their success, they have a great shot at attaining the Big East title.

Rumors are swirling that next month’s Super Bowl XLV will set an all time high attendance record at the Cowboys Stadium. These rumors are springing from the NFL’s decision to count tickets for outside the stadium as well.

The current Super Bowl attendance record was set in 1980 at California’s Rose Bowl with an attendance of almost 104,000 people. The Texas Stadium may break that record this year with the sale of outside tickets.

This year, the Cowboys are selling $200 tickets to an outside plaza for Super Bowl XLV. These tickets were first available to Cowboys season ticket holders, and could account for thousands of tickets. On Wednesday, NFL’s vice president of corporate communications, Brian McCarthy, told CNN that these tickets will count in the game’s attendance tally.

With counting these outsize plaza tickets, the stadium has expanded its capacity from 80,000 to around 100,000. The stadium has already set an NFL attendance record for having the highest attendance for a single-game. This record was set in 2009 with a crowd of 105,121 people, and this year they may have another attendance record under their belt.

Super Bowl XLV will be held on Sunday, February 6, 2011 at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Last year the United States’ Men’s Soccer team traveled to the New Meadowlands Stadium to play a high-profile exhibition game against Brazil. In March of this year, the team will play at the New Stadium for the second time ever to host fifth-ranked Argentina in a similar event. However, this time the US is looking to make up for their loss during their first appearance at the Meadowlands.

The match to be held later this year against Argentina will be the ninth match in the past four years that the United States has battled it out with a team ranked in the top five. Since the USA men’s national soccer team is ranked 18th in the world, games like this may be challenging, but also bring a ton of excitement.

After meeting and playing to a tie most recently in 2008 at Giants Stadium, the United States has a 2-6-1 record against Argentina. The United States only has two wins against Argentina, and neither of them have been after 1999. The US is looking to play a redeeming match at the New Meadowlands Stadium against Argentina this spring.

The men’s national soccer team will host Argentina on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Last week the Kentucky Derby revealed which five lucky women of Kentucky will be the princesses in the 2011 Derby’s Royal Court. The first time a Derby Festival Princess was crowned was back in 1957, during the festival’s second year. Former Princesses include Gail Gorski, the first female United Airlines pilot, and former Governor of Kentucky, Martha Layne Collins.

The court will join Gail Gorski and Martha Layne Collins in representing the city of Louisville and the Derby Festival as official ambassadors. In order to act as ambassadors for this year’s Derby Festival, these five young women will attend almost every official Derby Festival event. This means that the court must be present at nearly 70 events over a two-week period.

By a spin of the wheel, one of the five women will be crowned the Derby Festival Queen on Friday, April 15 at the annual American Founders Bank Fillies Derby Ball. This year Lauren Smith, Caitlin Carter, Laura Don Oliver, Katie Huber, and Trisha Maclin are all on the Royal Court, and are hoping for their chance to be named the Derby Festival Queen.

The 2011 Kentucky Derby will be held on Saturday, May 7 at the Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky.
