RoseWrites Picks 5 Women to Replace Letterman

As a child, I watched Sonny and Cher.[17] She can do comedy, she can do anything serious. The deal is, I also had Whoopi Goldberg[12]in mind for third place, but then found out she wouldn’t do it. She has compassion for the struggles of women and anyone disadvantaged in society, really. She’s a solid, well-rounded person and a hilarious comedian. Julia Louis-Dreyfus

The whole “Seinfeld curse”[3][4] thing appears to be conquered by Julia Louis-Dreyfus who recently won an Emmy for the HBO series Veep.[5] I highly doubt she’d consider hosting the Late Show, but I’ve always been impressed by her storytelling ability and how down-to-earth she comes across in person.

Up next, enjoy this short clip of her acceptance speech at the Emmy’s:

Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Emmy Acceptance SpeechThe Tonight Show4. Somehow I think hosting the Golden Globes with Amy Poehler and their separate acting careers are enough, for now:

The 71st Golden GlobesBest Of Tina Fey And Amy Poehler3. If Cher called me up and said, “We’d love to have you on the show,” I’d be there, yesterday. I think that Canadian comedians have trouble securing a long-term, decent paying gig here (re: Jon Dore, Jeremy Hotz, and perhaps Ed the Sock came close though). Tina might have more creative ventures to get out of her system though, before settling into a steady late night hosting gig. Top reviews by 35 customers, so far. Similar to how I feel about Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, there might be too many creative juices flowing in her.

After reading more about her life,[18] I came to appreciate her even more.She’s well aware of all the pitfalls of fame and I think she’d be able to recognize talent a mile away.

She’s the kind of person I feel I could open up to about the hardest times in my life. Cher

You might find Cher an odd pick – but think about it.She’s done it all and I think life on the road must be exhausting. She was quoted as saying, “I have a job here.I work for ABC.”[13]

Of course, she’d be brilliant – just look at her in 30 Rock or the string of movies she’s done.[8] I wonder what her thoughts are. Her and hubby Jason Jones promised to work together,[11] so they’d make a fabulous pairing to host the Late Show. Tina FeyWith Amy Poehler?

Having been on SNL and the show’s first female head writer,[7] she’d also be great. She appears to be one of the most promising candidates (at least, according to the articles I’ve read). Bonus: a never before heard duet with Cher and her mom. She’s a solid entertainer. I often wonder if they could use their Canadian “guilt tripping” abilities to convince fellow Canadian Paul Shaffer to stay. Wouldn’t you? Who’d say no to Cher?

Letterman retiringand he’s taking Paul

Okay, by now everyone knows that David Letterman announced he’ll be retiring from the Late Show next year.[1] And it sounds like he’s taking Paul Shaffer with him.[1][2]

Once he became a father, I noticed he “softened” a bit more – he was gentler and kinder when he interviewed certain celebrities.

Clearly, he can recognize true talent. Includes grandchildren Chaz Bono and Elijah Blue Allman too. I also adore her ability to tackle controversial issues and break down all the BS that mainstream thinking entails.

When Sonny died, she honored him in such an endearing and respectful manner. And I have to admit, Whoopi was the one person I seemed to agree with the most. Whenever I’ve watched her being interviewed, I’ve always come away thinkingOMGshe’s wise.

And, I like the idea of having a strong female role model who takes risks to fill Dave’s spot. And I agree with some obvious contenders – but there is a woman who came to my mind immediately (that I haven’t seen mentioned).

5. Love the humorous quips in this DVD. I remember watching David Letterman when he had a morning show and I certainly admired how well he handled himself through controversy (and dare I say, scandal).. I feel Cher would be an incredible interviewer – one who would convey the same compassion as Oprah. Hmmm.

Yet, her contract ends this year as talk show host ofChelsea Lately on E![15][16] Purportedly, she’s “in talks” with CBS [about Dave's job].[15]

Her comedic talent is unquestioned[6] and I’m certain she’d be stellar – however, I know it’d be a long shot to see her in Dave’s role.

Yet, Sam Bee would be amazing with her hubby. Chelsea Handler

I know she could do it, she’s daring and edgy. The following clips illustrate the depth of her comedic talent:

Canadians will “get” this short clipChelsea Handler apologizes to Vancouver’s mayorBest of Chelsea Handler’s AppearancesThe Tonight Show1. Just my observation, but I can see her getting bored with it – too many creative juices churning in that one. Samantha Bee with hubby Jason JonesYes I’m Canadian and I’m extremely biased

I think Sam Bee[9][10] would be brilliant. And perhaps, she might be too interesting at times – making her guests pale in comparison. Actually, Cher is my top pick to replace Dave.

An in-depth 90 minute biography about the hard road to fame that Georgia Holt and her daughters have endured. I wonder, though, if Chelsea might not get every guest to appear (that the network would want). Plus her and Amy Poehler make such a fantastic comedic team.

This leaves many fans to wonder who might be able to replace Dave (sorta). A must-see for any Cher fan.

She has the guts to disagree with people – yet she provides good reasons why.

I used to watch The View[14]on occasion. He will be missed.

But, the show must go on

After skimming a bunch of articles about who should replace Dave, I was pleasantly surprised that many fans would like to see a female in the role. This video is especially inspiring for all the single mothers out there. I have no idea if Sam Bee would even consider it, but I had to toss her hat in the ring once I found out Whoopi wouldn’t do it.

Rarely can I access Daily Show clips sinceI’m Canadian, but I found a Dove Truth Files clip:2

With longer extra point tries, the heat will be on kickers this season like never before.

The Chiefs have a backup plan if Cairo Santos can’t go — and it’s Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane.

Check out what happened when the two met in England in advance of Kansas City’s trip to London later this year:

That’s a good old fashioned kick-off. MLS All Stars defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1. For all his inexperience kicking oblong balls, Kane sure seems like he knows what he’s doing.

There’s a reason for that

Jurgen Klopp: The seven faces of a soccer icon

‘Come-get-me’ Klopp Klopp is one of football’s brightest coaches and could be set to take on a new challenge at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp: The seven faces of a soccer icon

Happy Klopp Klopp’s reign at Dortmund gave him plenty to smile about. Take this response when he was asked about his bountiful blonde locks: “Yes, it’s true. I think the results are really cool, don’t you?”

Sad Klopp But, Klopp also had reasons to be glum. I underwent a hair transplant. His time at Dortmund is perhaps best remembered for the team’s run to the 2013 Champions League final. Dortmund were beaten 2-1 by archrivals Bayern Munich at London’s Wembley Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp: The seven faces of a soccer icon

Curious Klopp At times, Dortmund’s players left Klopp scratching his head. During his spell at BVB, he saw players like Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Lewandowski effortlessly defeat the opposition, meaning he can relax on the touchline.

Angry Klopp And when he’s not happy, Klopp makes his feelings known. While he won many admirers, Klopp didn’t win club football’s biggest prize. Despite possessing a talented squad, they started the 2014-15 season poorly, losing 10 league matches by Christmas. No stranger to screaming from the touchlines, he terrified fans all over the world when he tore into a stunned official during Dortmund’s match against Napoli in 2013.

Candid Klopp As well as providing memorable moments on the pitch, Klopp gave numerous sound bites in his press conferences at Dortmund. He led the club to two German league titles — in 2011 and 2012 — while also clinching the German Cup in 2012.

Jurgen Klopp: The seven faces of a soccer icon

Calm Klopp When all is going well and his team is playing well, Klopp is serene. After the winter break, however, the team rallied to finish seventh in the Bundesliga.

How big a joke is Jose Mourinho?


he even had the nerve to talk down City’s win, Jose, by labelling it a ‘fake victory’. Anything can happen. But one thing that definetely WON’T happen is Manure challenging for the title.

Chelsea are capable of bouncing back though.

City fecking CRUSHED them :-D

The Gunners won today ! courtesy of a generous winner by Palace player Delaney lol

They must not let this 3-0 beating bother them and they must play their own game – as Jose said, he knows his maths and theres 36 games still left to and plenty of points to take from 36 games to win the league.

either way its good to see them off to a poor start to their title defence. trust me – long way to go yet.

City were on steroids today , Chelsea couldn’t handle their eagerness and Aguero was a fecking livewire – Sterling was causing mayhem with his runs and Ivanovic forgot to take off his robe and slippers and put on his chelski kit for the game lol

A true mark of champions is how they bounce back from big setbacks early on in the season. lol.

That said, I said Chelsea would SUCCESSFULY defend the Premier League Title and I stand by my claims.

People will look back at this point in the season 30 games from now and will be like ‘and we all said Chelsea were finished…lol’

City though will need to keep this going and bring back the fear factor they had from 2 seasons ago when they were simply demolishing sides for fun, even a 100+ goal scoring LFC were unable to stop them from winning the league….the pressure to win it when City are in that kind of mood is colossal

Arsene Wenger condemns Arsenal fans who vandalised White Hart Lane after victory over Tottenham | Football | Sport

I dont really know what happened but we are at the disposal of the authorities to help them to sort it out.

One of the advantages maybe of not speaking much English is that he doesnt understand that much about whats going on, said Wenger.

Arsene Wenger has condemned the Arsenal supporters accused of vandalising White Hart Lane at Wednesdays North London derby.

Its the same with us on the pitch. We want commitment but a controlled commitment and discipline as a club.

Police have confirmed 10 arrests were made on the night for a variety of offences including criminal damage and both clubs continue to work with them to identify individuals involved using the stadiums CCTV footage.

Arsenal await the outcome of an independent regulatory commission hearing into Gabriel Paulistas Football Association charge for improper conduct today after his red card in last weekends 2-0 defeat at Chelsea was rescinded.

Wenger also revealed Jack Wilshere has successfully undergone an operation on a hairline fracture on his left leg, with the Arsenal manager predicting his return to action in December, Christmas.

Gabriel was initially sent off for clashing with Diego Costa – who escaped with a yellow card on the day but has since been retrospectively banned for three matches pending an appeal – and Wenger admits the Brazilians lack of English has insulated him from the ongoing controversy.

Francis Coquelin will have a scan today on a knee problem and will miss tomorrows encounter at the King Power Stadium but the club insist he has not suffered a serious injury. We dont want any violence. Wenger described it as a little bone bruising on the knee.

[If he is cleared] he will [be ready to play]. Mentally, I have looked at him and he was sorry for what happened, and very disappointed but he is a fighter and his attitude in training the whole week was completely focused and motivated.

The Gunners Capital One Cup third round victory over Tottenham was overshadowed by ugly scenes after the final whistle in which away supporters appeared to tear down hoardings emblazoned with pro-Spurs slogans.

Arsenal fans trash White Hart Lane. You want support but a controlled support. And speaking ahead of tomorrows Premier League trip to Leicester, Wenger told Standard Sport: We cooperate completely with the authorities to sort that out

2015 Kentucky Derby mystery: Why is Dortmund 3 to 1 odds and Firing Line 12 to 1

Dortmund raced in and won both the San Felipe and the Santa Anita stakes as a big favorite, while Firing Line absolutely crushed the field in the Sunland Derby winning by 14 lengths under a hand ride at odds of .20 to 1.

Based upon Dortmund’s perfect six for six record and the fact that he did beat Firing Line twice by a head each time, I can understand him being favored over Firing Line in the Kentucky Derby, but to have Firing Line’s odds be four times what the odds are for Dortmund makes no sense.

Why is Dortmund listed at 3 to 1 odds while Firing Line is at 12 to 1? I ask the question because Firing Line has already run against Dortmund twice in his career, and Firing Line lost to Dortmund both times by just a head.

On December 20, 2014, in the Los Alamitos Futurity stakes race, Dortmund won the race as a heavy favorite at odds of .60 to 1 while Firing Line ran second beaten just a head at odds of 3.40 to 1.. Of course, those are just morning line odds but if Firing Line goes off at odds that are anything close to four times the odds of Dortmund in the 2015 Kentucky Derby he’s probably a good bet.

Dortmund is trained by Bob Baffert, who has won the Kentucky Derby three times, while Firing Line is trained by young Simon Callaghan who has yet to win the Derby but does already have six Grade 1 stakes wins in his career.

The two horses then took different paths to the Kentucky Derby. 2015 Kentucky Derby mystery: Why is Dortmund 3 to 1 odds and Firing Line 12 to 1?

On February 7, 2015, in the Robert B Lewis stakes race at Santa Anita, Dortmund and Firing Line hooked up again with the same result, Dortmund winning by just a head at odds of .60 to 1 while Firing Line’s odds dropped to 1.80 to 1.

Based upon what the two horses have accomplished on the track especially against each other, how can there be such a big discrepancy in their morning line odds?

Have you seen the morning line odds for the 2015 Kentucky Derby which will take place this Saturday, May 2, 2015, at Churchill Downs? To this horse racing fan there is a huge mystery in those morning line odds.

Anybody who likes Dortmund in the 2015 Kentucky Derby also has to like Firing Line since he lost to Dortmund twice by just a head and the fact that he is listed at four times Dortmund’s odds

Paris Saint-Germain gets a boost as Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns to training


After Bastia’s 2-0 loss to PSG on Aug. It helps players improve more quickly.”

Deschamps guided unheralded Moncao to the Champions League final 10 years ago, knocking out Real Madrid and Chelsea along the way.

. “It’s important for the image of French football, and for the national team, that the clubs do well on the European scene. ALONE

Brazilian forward Brandao is training alone as he awaits his fate after headbutting Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta.

Brandao, who has been temporarily suspended by the French league, faces a lengthy ban when the LFP’s disciplinary council pronounces its verdict on Sept.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has resumed light training, and Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc will be hoping that is enough to spark a lackluster attack.

PSG will play Sunday against second-place Saint-Etienne, a team that has caused the defending French champions problems over the past two seasons.

Ibrahimovic’s return should take the pressure off Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani, who is still struggling to find his best form since joining PSG last season.

Bordeaux will be looking for a fourth straight win when it hosts Bastia on Sunday.

Here are some things to know about this weekend’s games.



Three straight wins, entertaining football, and a lot of goals.

That is exactly what observers expected from big-spending Paris Saint-Germain this season, but it is Bordeaux that is producing some eye-catching performances.

Bordeaux coach Willy Sagnol, who left his coaching job with France’s under-21 side to join Bordeaux in the offseason, has taken to top-flight coaching with remarkable ease.

After starting the campaign with a 1-0 win at Montpellier, Bordeaux followed with a 4-1 rout of Monaco the French league’s other big spender. The team then beat Nice 3-1 last weekend.

Sagnol, who played 58 times for France as an attack-minded right back, has shown faith in 21-year-old Uruguayan forward Diego Rolan, who struggled to break into the team over the past two seasons.

Rolan scored two goals and had an assist in three games, while strike partner Cheick Dibate has also scored twice.



Now back to training, Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is hoping to play in Sunday’s home match against Saint-Etienne.

The Sweden forward tore an abdominal muscle two weeks ago playing against Bastia and missed the 0-0 draw against Evian last weekend, where PSG looked weak in attack without him.

Following his injury, the 32-year-old Ibrahimovic took a break back in Sweden, where he worked on his fitness with his national team’s medical staff in a bid to speed up his comeback.

Ibrahimovic, the top scorer in the French league for the past two seasons, took part in ball drills during PSG’s training session on Wednesday.


BRANDAO TRAINS … 16, he waited for Motta in the tunnel and headbutted the Italy international, leaving him with a broken nose. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi called for Brandao to be banned for life.

The 34-year-old Brandao, who joined Bastia this season after spells with Marseille and Saint-Etienne, resumed training with a physical instructor on Tuesday.



Modibo Maiga is set to make his Metz debut at home against Lyon on Sunday after joining the newly-promoted club from West Ham on a season-long loan.

The Mali forward struggled to make an impact in the English Premier League over the past two seasons, and spent the second part of last season on loan at second-tier club Queens Park Rangers.

Metz needs a boost in attack, having scored only one goal in three matches so far.

The team recently sold striker Diafra Sakho, last season’s Player of the Year in the second division, to West Ham.



France coach Didier Deschamps is worried that the French league’s image will worsen unless clubs fare better in European competition.

Lille lost to FC Porto 3-0 on aggregate on Tuesday in the Champions League playoffs, a year after Lyon was thrashed 4-0 over two legs by Real Sociedad at the same stage.

Aside from Paris Saint-Germain, which reached the Champions League quarterfinals last season, French clubs have fared poorly in the past two seasons, with Marseille losing all six of its group games in the last campaign.

“I want them to play as well as possible, especially in the Champions League,” Deschamps said
