Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Utah State has canceled Saturday's game against Colorado State because of concerns voiced by players about religious discrimination in the school's search for a new football coach, the university said Friday. The cancellation was announced shortly after Aggies players revealed their decision to opt out of the regular-season finale because of alleged comments made by Utah State president Noelle Cockett regarding interim head coach Frank Maile.

MIAMI, April 9 (UPI) -- Fans were wickedly warm at AmericanAirlines Arena Tuesday in Miami, and it wasn't because of the pregame flames shot over the court during player introductions. It was the man in the No. 3 jersey who has meant so much to the community that it was unofficially named "Wade County" in his honor.

'SNL' sketch puts President Trump, legal team in 'Sopranos' finale

Entertainment
May 20 (UPI) -- This weekend's Season 43 finale of Saturday Night Live featured a sketch in which U.S. President Donald Trump and his legal team appear in the iconic last scene from The Sopranos. Like the HBO mob drama's infamous closer, the 5-minute, SNL version saw the story's central characters sitting in a diner talking about life and ended with the screen going to black, leaving it up to the audience to decide what happened to them. In case anyone missed the reference, it also featured Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" playing in the background and Alex Moffat as Eric Trump struggling to parallel park a child's toy bike outside the restaurant. Alec Baldwin reprised his role of Trump in the clip, which has gotten nearly 700,000 views on YouTube since it was posted Saturday evening. Th...
