Heading into the decisive final day of the MLS regular season, there were plenty of bad omens for a struggling Portland Timbers team in need of a result to qualify for the playoffs.
Brian Fernandez was suspended. Diego Valeri was out with a lingering calf injury. And the San Jose Earthquakes were coming into Providence Park with everything to play for — in need of a win to keep their own season alive.
This time, though, after a month of of ugly soccer and bad breaks and disappointing results, the Timbers got the job done and did it with room to spare.
Goals from Larrys Mabiala, Dairon Asprilla, and Sebastian Blanco were more than enough to lift the Timbers to their first win in six games on a lovely fall afternoon, jump into sixth place in the Western Conference, and bring the curtain down on San Jose's remarkable season.
All of the sudden, after all they endured this fall, the Timbers can look forward to a third-straight playoff appearance that will begin with a game against Real Salt Lake — a team that they've already beaten twice this year, at a venue that they've won at in both of their previous visits under Giovani Savarese.
Things are looking up. Facing the biggest test of their season, the Timbers had the right gameplan and executed it to near-perfection.
With San Jose man-marking in the ubiquitous system installed by their Argentinian manager Matias Almeyda, Savarese — in a move reminiscent of Portland's surge last fall — set his team up to defend deep and hit the 'Quakes on the break.
The early returns were positive. The Timbers nearly took the lead after a quarter of an hour when a Blanco corner hit Chris Wondolowski and forced San Jose goalkeeper Daniel Vega into a sprawling save, and generally were contesting the game on their terms.
The Timbers were getting traction going forward, and while the Earthquakes had plenty of the ball — they'd finish with 61 percent possession and complete nearly 200 more passes than the Timbers did — they were completely unable to break down the Timbers' defensive lines.
A slaloming, one-man run aside, Jorge Villafaña held the dangerous Cristian Espinoza was held in check. Vako completed only four passes during the entirety of the half on the opposite flank, Wondolowski just two from his position at center forward.
The Timbers' attack was limited somewhat with Asprilla and Andy Polo playing on the wings, but with Ebobisse dealing up top and Blanco slashing through the middle, it had a balance that had often been missing over the last several months.
It was on a set piece, though, that the Timbers would strike first.
Just before the half hour mark, Asprilla settled a recycled corner on the edge of the penalty area and slipped a ball wide left for an onrushing Villafaña, who whipped a pass across the face of goal that Mabiala, who had stayed in the box after the initial clearance, stuck out his trailing leg and dragged in.
Just like that, San Jose was in serious trouble — in need of multiple goals, with a third of the game gone, having failed to create a single significant chance yet. But they still had Wondolowski, and, with him, the ability to conjure a goal from thin air.
With halftime closing in and the score 1-0, that's exactly with they did. Off of a pre-planned corner routine, Espinoza hit a cross to the near post and the 36-year-old record MLS goalscorer beat everyone to the ball and flicked a diving header off of the ground, off of the underside of the crossbar, and in to tie the game.
It was vintage Wondolowski — a purely instinctual, fearless finish, his record eleventh goal against Portland, a one of the most important of his season.
As the second half began, with Dallas running riot over Sporting Kansas City, everything was on the table. One of these teams was going to be playing its final 45 minutes of the season, one was going to move on.
Enter, not for the first time and not ever unremarkably, Asprilla. Handed his first start in a month ahead of Marvin Loría, the Colombian with a penchant for scoring the most timely of goals repaid Savarese's faith with another memorable contribution.
Just before the hour mark, Asprilla drifted inside to pick up a cross-field pass from Ebobisse, cut past Florien Jungwirth with an excellent first touch, and went barreling through on goal. Vega stopped his first shot, but the rebound squibbed underneath him — and Asprilla, at the second time of asking, tucked it in.
Whatever his past, for a player who has had the most abject of seasons, this was a stunning moment: a truly excellent goal, all of his own making, thanks to the kind of decisive turn of pace that you almost never see him make when he receives the ball.
At this time of the year, though, there's no rhyme or reason when it comes to Asprilla. He's just a different player.
Almeyda emptied his bench almost immediately the goal, making all three of his substitutions and trying to push his team — again in search of two goals, now with just 30 minutes left to play — into a more overtly attacking posture.
In the process, which included removing a defensive midfielder, the 'Quakes opened themselves up on the counter. The Timbers had several chance to ice the game in the following minutes, with Ebobisse and Cristhian Paredes coming closest, but it'd take a special moment from Blanco to make the result secure.
With a quarter of an hour to play, and Valeri off the field, it was the diminutive Argentine who stepped to a free kick from 25 yards away and fired it into the top corner.
No player on the field more deserved to score. The Timbers were never worse over the last month than when Blanco was out of the lineup, and on a day when they were missing their two most high profile attackers, he brought the heat in every phase of the game.
With that, San Jose was buried. They finished the season having lost six straight, a sour end to an otherwise triumphant first MLS campaign for Almeyda.
The Timbers' run-in wasn't much prettier. But Savarese, who has never missed the postseason as a manager, was understandably pleased with his team's perseverance. They didn't throw in the towel, and they made it to the finish line with their season intact.
"It has been a very difficult season in so many ways," Savarese said after the game. "So that’s why I think even in this moment that we have been able to make the playoffs, I’m more proud than ever for all the guys we have on the team.”
The slate is clean. Salt Lake away, a team the Timbers know they can beat, and then the specter of another playoff meeting with Seattle. The possibilities, just as they should at this time of the year, abound.

|Cache||Four people were killed and another five injured in an early morning shooting at a private bar in Kansas City, Kansas.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – One of the two men accused of opening fire inside a Kansas bar early Sunday, killing four people and wounding five others, was arrested Sunday afternoon while the other remained at large, police said.
Javier Alatorre, 23, and Hugo Villanueva-Morales, 29, were each charged with four counts of first-degree murder, police in Kansas City, Kansas, said in an early Monday release. Alatorre was arrested late Sunday afternoon in Kansas City, Missouri, but police were still looking for Villanueva-Morales, who is considered “armed and dangerous.” Bail for each was set at $1 million.
The two men, both with criminal records, apparently had a disagreement with people inside Tequila KC bar, left, and then returned with handguns a couple hours later, police spokesman Officer Thomas Tomasic. The shooting was captured on surveillance video, which police weren’t releasing.
Bartender Jose Valdez told The Kansas City Star that he had refused to serve one of the suspects on Saturday night because the man had previously caused problems at the bar. Valdez said the man threw a cup at him and left, but returned later with another man shortly before closing time.
Around 40 people were inside the small bar when gunfire erupted, Tomasic said. The gunfire sent people running for the exits, with the injured leaving trails of blood as they fled. One of the injured was trying to get a ride to the hospital when ambulances arrived.
Valdez said he thought the building was “going to cave in” and that three of the people killed were regulars whose parents also frequented the neighborhood bar.
“I don’t know what to make of it. A sad day for everybody who lost their lives and their families,” he said, choking up. “How can you go into a place full of people and just start shooting?”
Alatorre is currently jailed in Missouri after he was arrested without incident at a home that court records listed as his place of residence. Kansas City, Missouri, police, the FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives assisted in the arrest, Tomasic said.
He will have a first appearance in coming days in Kansas, said Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office spokesman Jonathan Carter. Alatorre doesn’t yet have an attorney. Carter said it’s too soon to determine whether prosecutors will consider the death penalty in the case.
Villanueva-Morales and Alatorre each faced criminal charges in Missouri, and Alatorre’s criminal record also included previous convictions, according to online court records in Missouri and online Department of Corrections records in Kansas.
Villanueva-Morales had a pending third-degree assault charge in Missouri. Alatorre, meanwhile, had past convictions for fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement in Kansas and for driving while intoxicated in Missouri. He also had pending charges in Missouri for tampering with a motor vehicle, possession of a controlled substance and resisting or interfering with arrest, detention or stop. And in 2017, an order of protection had been ordered, barring him from abusing, stalking and possessing a firearm.
All four men who were killed were Hispanic, but Tomasic had said authorities did not believe the shooting was racially motivated. The shooting happened in a neighborhood with a large Hispanic population.
Among the dead was a man in his late 50s, another in his mid-30s and two in their mid-20s, police said. Authorities did not immediately release their names.
However, Juan Ramirez, of Kansas City, Kansas, told the newspaper that his 29-year-old nephew was among those killed. He said his nephew left behind a 6-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter.
“I don’t wish this upon anybody,” Ramirez said.
The state’s congregational delegation also weighed in, with Republican Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts and Democratic Rep. Sharice Davids describing the shooting as “senseless.”

Kansas City Punks Faultfinder Rocked, Even If You've Got Not A Big Brain
There may never be another Kansas City band quite like Faultfinder. Since its 2010 inception to its 2018 demise (and posthumous LP release this year), the group stood out as one of the most challenging and abrasive acts in the metro. I met up with three-fourths of the final lineup in late September at Revolution Records to discuss the band’s nine-year run and culminating recording, which was partially tracked at Revolution.
The Kansas City punk scene of nearly a decade ago largely orbited a humble Crossroads DIY space called the Studded Bird. Just a stone’s throw from our record store meetup spot — at East 19th and Holmes Streets — under the watchful eye of a colorful, indoor bird mural played American punk circuit favorites like Raw Nerve, Brown Sugar and The Body. Often joining those bands was a wave of like-minded local acts that included Dark Ages, No Class, White Slave and others. Unlike the snottier and speedier groups that emerged during the mid-’10s, these bands shared similarly dark aesthetics.
Faultfinder, while welcomed by its peers in this scene, always stood out a bit. Not many of its songs moved faster than drummer Ben Biersmith’s mid-paced marches (as opposed to the fast, ‘80s hardcore-inspired tempos of other groups). While many early songs bent a bit melodic — thanks to the writing of founding member Nic Allred — the group’s compositions grew increasingly slow and nasty, teetering on the verge of industrial at times. The band has most often identified simply as a punk band, but elements of the New York-born no wave movement always felt like a more precise reference point.
“It’s sort of like you take Swans and make it a joke instead of being super self-serious,” said bassist and vocalist Mookie Ninjak, discussing Faultfinder’s core sound.
It may be easy enough to miss on first glance, but the comedy that crept its way into much of Faultfinder’s material is another thing that made the group stand out. From its tongue-in-cheek song titles (from the LP: “Fruitless Hump” and “Young, Dumb And Full Of Complex Biological Systems”) to its lyrics, which often explored the depths of nihilism before yanking the listener out with a witty nugget of gallows humor, few local acts could make a sharp-minded punk laugh like Faultfinder.
The band was perhaps at its funniest (and most maniacal) when performing live. Guitarist Joe Wetteroth fondly recalled an all-punk cover show the band was set to play a couple years back where they pulled quite the fakeout: “You thought you were gonna see a band we can all agree on, Rudimentary Peni, but you’re gonna see The Beatles tonight.”
Most times though, the band wasn’t so much actively pranking its audience as it was playing a game of chicken with them. Already the slowest-playing band on most bills, the repetitive and psychedelic krautrock style of some of its songs led to punks peeling out one by one, abandoning Faultfinder to go outside for a cigarette. Faultfinder was on the cutting edge of poseur-detector technology. “It wasn’t my goal ever to make people leave the room, but I always thought it didn’t leave a bad taste in my mouth when it happened,” laughed Ninjak.

The extreme reactions weren’t always negative, though. The band spoke of one loyal fan, to whom they dedicated a tape, who once took a $50 taxi ride from an outer suburb just to see them play. Some fans also didn’t come from the most standard of punk backgrounds — members mentioned they had one or two nine-to-fivers who would come to see them. Perhaps the bleak nature of their music most accurately reflected the feelings of being stuck at a desk all day. “It’s definitely music to kill yourself in your cubicle to,” Ninjak said, referencing these fans and an office-centric music video created for one of their songs by a friend of the band.
As the band muscled on through its third distinct lineup, it finally got to work on its long-awaited longplayer (jokingly referred to as its own “Chinese Democracy”). Tracked and mixed with the help of friend James Rumsey and mastered by Duane Trower, “Brother’s Milk,” the band believes, is the most accurate representation of the sound they set out to achieve. Much of the melodicism of the band’s early days is long gone, as is some of the metallic edge that former guitarist Steve Shoup injected during his stay. What’s left musically is something murkier and in-between.
Lyrically, the album is a vital, bleak and hilarious document that encapsulates the psyche of a crew of smart Midwestern punks raised in Bush-era horror, who came of age witnessing Obama-era denialism and became DIY scene elders, as the nation slipped into Trump-era chaos. The words aren’t often overtly political, but rather capture the day-to-day feelings that the systems in place often play a hand in creating.
As work on the record began to wrap up, the band quickly realized it would soon be no more. Guitarist Don Beasley and Ninjak both left Kansas City last year. Some parties were less interested in the band’s music at the time than others, but those remaining recognized that the LP’s release would be as good a time as any to end on a high note. Local co-op record label Black Site pressed the record to vinyl and in the longstanding tradition of the punk band breaking up with its LP, that was that. “A happy ending,” I started, as our interview wound down, “for a happy band,” one member finished with a laugh.
Brother’s Milk is available to purchase on Bandcamp, as well as at several local record stores.

by M1TankerThe 1967 AFL SEASON VIA DOWNEY
FINAL SCORE FOOTBALL
WE are embarked upon doing a series of American Football League seasons, starting with 1967. Why 1967? 1967 was the year where I really came of age in the sense of football. It was my second season of midget football, aka Pop Warner football. It was the first year I really followed the season from start to finish. Early in that season for some reason I can’t recall I switched from the Kansas City Chiefs to the Oakland Raiders. The Black and Silver simply appealed to me and struck some chord in me. Moreover, in retrospect this was a great Raiders team, an offensive juggernaut, the first of several plus such teams in a row. Ben Davidson’s handlebar mustache rocked.
Now, the Downey website tells the prospective player that “The Final Score Football line of games differs from our other quick play line, Ultra Quick, as the games all unfold in a quarter-by-quarter manner. Each team is rated individually for Offense, Defense, Strength of Schedule, and Home Field Advantage”. We will note that strength of schedule is used for the College game. How that works is like this – say the Miami Dolphins are playing the Oakland Raiders in Oakland in 1967. Rating move either to the left or right based upon the defensive rating and Home Rating. The Dolphins here modify their offensive rating of G by the Raiders defensive rating of -4 to come up with a new rating, in this case the letter C. The Raiders Offensive rating is P, so we add Miami’s rating of +3 for a for a S base offensive rating. That is Example #1. Unlike in the College Football version, there is no subtracting the two strength of schedules. Instead what we have is the rule for Home Field Advantage (HFA). That is very simple to use. Playing at Oakland gives you a 1/1, which means each side modifies their letter by moving it one column to the right. In Example #2 we calculate that and you see the final result. It is obvious that Oakland should win this game but with a very high die roll and a very low die roll by Oakland there is a tiny chance for the upset.
In the only game of Week, the Broncos forgot show up for the 2nd half, after leading 20-10 at half-time. Boston ran up 20 points and Denver got a late same safety as Boston ate the ball to protect the lead. Are these the Patriots who were 8-4-2 in 1966, ready to compete for the title in the East?
Week 2 saw Boston travel to San Diego. By the end of the 3rd Q, SD was ahead 27-14, winning by 34-21. Lance Alworth scored twice against Boston.
The Chiefs traveled to Houston. KC has a chip on its shoulder after losing the first Super Bowl. At the half, KC was down 7-6. Houston conducted two long scoring drives to upset the Chiefs 20-13.
Surprisingly the Jets-Bills game was rated a toss-up. It was a great early September day in Buffalo and the Bills faithful turned out to boo Namath and company, as Buffalo fans hate those folks from the other side of the state. The Jets jumped out to a 21-14 lead at the half. The Bills added 14 more in the 2nd half, but the Jets matched them with 16, winning 37-28.
Denver said the oddsmakers giving the Raiders a HUGE edge was simply Bay Area whacky thinking and they would make the local sportswriters eat their words. Final Oakland 45-Denver 17. In each half the Raiders outscored Denver by 14 points.
Boston was hoping to pick up its 2nd win of the year against what they perceived as an upstart Raiders team just like in the Ultra-Quick Football Replay. This was never close as Oakland smashed Boston’s hope even worse in this one 51-7.
Denver and Miami had a wild first half, with the Broncos and Dolphins scoring at will, with a 21-20 1st half with Miami sensing a win. Denver tallied 14 in the 2nd half and the Dolphins scored 6, and were shut out in the 4th Q losing 35-26.
Houston and the Bills saw this as a pivotal early season game. All it proved was these offenses were offensive as the final was 6-6. Buffalo had a sliver of a chance with having the last roll, but failed to convert. Houston was happy to escape with the tie.
Buffalo won a yawner 20-9. Boston did themselves no favors, rolling twice for Big Quarters, and each time getting a -3 column shift modifier, resulting in 0 points for those quarters.
John Hadl and Lance Alworth all week talked up how they would shred the Oilers secondary. Instead Houston rolled up 35 points on SD, jumping out to a 21-7 1st half lead.
KC was picked as a prohibitive favorite over the Dolphins. What’s worse than prohibitive as the Dolphins were a fish out of water, losing 59-3. KC put up 31 unanswered 2nd half points.
Namath was cold in Denver – and the early snow didn’t help. Denver was up 13-12 at the half, but only managed two 2nd half Field goals, while the Jets kicked 3 to escape with a 21-19 win.

The Rialto Report
September 30, 2019
Candy Samples, who enjoyed a long career as a hugely popular buxom model in men’s magazines and as an actress in adult films, passed away this week.
She was 91.
Candy Samples was one of the true larger than life figures that lit up the early adult industry: she appeared in cult movies such as Russ Meyer‘s Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens (1979) (where she was ‘The Very Big Blonde’) and Up! (1976), and also Flesh Gordon (1974), Fantasm (1976), Deep Jaws (1976), and The Best Little Whorehouse in San Francisco (1985), as well as tens of loops – to name but a few.
She was in black and white cheesecake photo sets from the late 1960s, thousands of magazines, and scores of films – from softcore to hardcore, from loops to catfight wrestling shorts.
She had a mischievous, friendly look that stood out from all the other models. She often played the roles of older women that somehow looked like your mother’s naughty friend, exuding a mysterious sex appeal.
And then there were her breasts. With her formidable physique, she looked like an Amazonian queen; fit, tanned, and invincible. Her staggering physique made her an instant favorite, and for many years she toured as an exotic dancer. Somehow she just seemed to get more popular with age, and she developed a huge following that endured right through to her retirement in the late 1980s – and even today her magazine spreads exchange hands for elevated prices.
After she retired, she remained active – writing columns in the 1990s for magazines like Juggs. And she had an online fan club where she would have chat sessions with fans.
When we started The Rialto Report, we knew we wanted to interview her. We figured that as she’d been active in the industry for almost 40 years it wouldn’t be difficult to find her. We figured wrong.
She’d disappeared from public view, changing her name on multiple occasions (she was rumored to have married eight times), and we spent years trying to track her down.
After leaving messages for her with scores of people, we got a call from a person one day who told us that Candy was living with him.
When The Rialto Report interviewed Candy Samples, her fondest memories were reserved for her friendship with Uschi Digard.
SAMPLES, Candy (Mary Gavin)
Born: 4/12/1940, Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A.
Died: 9/2?/2019, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.

The New England Patriots' defense is terrifyingly good.
Through five games this season, Bill Belichick's brick wall ranks No. 2 against the run and the pass and averages 6.8 points allowed per game. If you told me two years ago that a unit that features a lot of the same players that couldn't get off the field in Super Bowl LII would do the kinds of things they're doing right now, I'd probably pass out from laughing so hard.
So what's missing?
And in the spirit of Halloween, Dont'a Hightower came up with the perfect nickname for the defense: The Boogeymen.
“We’re the boogeyman, man,” Hightower said Sunday about the Patriots’ linebacker corps. “We’re the boogeymen.”
Make fun of New England's schedule all you want, but the defense's performance through these first five games is not an accident. It will be interesting to see how they fare against teams with better offenses like Dallas, Philadelphia, Kansas City, etc.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Greyhound Lines has apologized to a Texas man who sued the company after a driver forced him off a bus at a station in Kansas at the dead of night, accusing him of being unruly and uncooperative.
Mohammad Reza Sardari was traveling from Dallas to Kansas City, Missouri, in November 2017 when he was kicked off a Greyhound bus at a bus station in Wichita, Kansas. Sardari, a Ph.D. candidate at University of Texas-Arlington, was heading to a national conference in Kansas City to present his research on inequality in the Dallas Area Rapid Transit System.
Last November, Sardari filed a federal lawsuit in Dallas against Greyhound, saying the company discriminated against him because he's Middle Eastern after the bus driver saw his name on the ticket. Sardari, who is Iranian, said he was "abandoned in the middle of the night at a dark and closed bus station."
At the time, Greyhound said it had investigated the incident and found that Sardari was removed because he refused to show his ticket when he was asked. The company said it called the police to remove Sardari after he refused to leave the bus, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
In a statement last month, Greyhound retracted its previous claims that Sardari had been unruly.
"Greyhound also fully retracts its statement that police were called to remove Dr. Sardari from the bus he was riding," Greyhound said in a statement on Sept. 17. "Greyhound sincerely apologies to Dr. Sardari regarding the events that occurred."
The company maintains that it didn't discriminate against Sardari.
Sardari's lawsuit says the bus driver and passengers started yelling at him to get off the bus, which Sardari recorded on video.
"On the video, Dr. Sardari can be heard calmly asking for an explanation as to why he...
