Coldplay’s Chris Martin Wears Yellow Band During Halftime In Honor Of SoCal Teen

CALABASAS (CBSLA.com) — It was an emotional moment as two Calabasas parents watched Chris Martin from Coldplay light up the stage during the Super Bowl halftime show. That’s because Martin was wearing a yellow bracelet and yellow band on his shirt. Kevin and Melodie Cordasco of Calabasas started “Something Yellow” after their son died of a rare cancer. “The jacket came off and it was exactly where he said it would be,” said Cordasco of Martin. During Kevin Jr.’s fight, Coldplay and their song “Yellow” were his favorite. Martin even met him in the hospital, but no one knew their friendship would continue to blossom. “Kevin’s spirit is a river. It’s not us. We’re just carrying out his wishes,” Cordasco said. In 2014, after Kevin’s death, the band dedicated their album Ghost Stories to him. It was Kevin’s mission even at his young age while battling the disease to raise awareness for childhood cancer. Coldplay on Sunday helped carry on that mission. “Right now, Kevin’s smiling. I know. I know he was here today,” Cordasco said. Read More »

What It’ll Take To Get LA Memorial Coliseum Ready For Rams

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — From two Olympic Games to the first Super Bowl fifty years ago, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has a rich and storied history. Now, the stadium may have to get prepared for a blast from the past as the Rams, who played here until 1981, prepare to take the field again. In fact, the Rams will call the Coliseum home for three seasons until the Inglewood project is ready. “The NFL has walked this grass. They’re happy with it. We should be just fine with this turf,” said Joe Furin, the coliseum’s general manager. “There are things we don’t necessarily meet NFL standards. The question is going to, ‘Will the Rams want them on short-term basis or be able to live with what we have,’ ” he said. One such thing may be the stadium lights. “There’s a range on how low or how bright they can be. We’re on the lower end right now. The NFL standards are a little higher than that,” he said. And the Trojan-branded locker room. Furin says real estate is tight and there’s not much room to build anything new. “The challenges are going to be on Saturday on Sunday, changing out from a USC look and branding to whatever the Rams branding is,” he said. But Furin says, just like the Staples Center flips the floor, they’ll flip the field. USC plans to spend $270 million to upgrade everything down to the seats on the aging stadium. Hosting an NFL team like the Rams will certainly help with that cost. Those renovations won’t start until 2019 after the Rams are set to move. The NFL has used temporary collegiate stadiums before. Two years ago, the NFL and the Vikings spent nearly $10 million to upgrade TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota so they’ll likely kick in for upgrades here. “I talked with the head coach for the now Los Angeles Rams Jeff Fisher and he made it clear that the only thing that they need is good seats and green grass and they will do the rest,” said County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas. Ridley-Thomas is the president of the Coliseum Commission. He says hosting the Rams is a chance for Angelenos to root for the home team while watching history repeat itself. “People will have that as an extra, added feature of what will make the next three seasons very special right here in Exposition Park,” he said.

Super Bowl Commercials A Big Hit With Fans At Pasadena Bar

PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Super Bowl fans gathered in Pasadena Sunday to watch the big game and the pricey commercials. “I’m not a Broncos fan. I’m not a Panthers fan. I’m strictly here for the commercials. That’s it,” said David Ruiz, a patron. The commercials gave Ruiz and others a lot of reasons to cheer, though. The Doritos commercial featuring an unborn baby reaching for a chip during an ultrasound was an attention-getter for those watching at Barney’s Beanery and was a favorite. “I’m about to have a baby so it was really funny how the baby came out as soon as they threw out the Dorito,” said Jazmin Hubbard. Other attention grabbers included the Hyundai spot featuring Ryan Reynolds and the Heinz commercial featuring a wiener dog. Read More »
