Any multiplatinum band is bound to attract its share of haters, yet the disgust Coldplay generates can feel crazily disproportionate to the band's talents. For the super-famous millionaire husband of a movie star, front man Chris Martin seems like a decent enough guy. And at the Tweeter Center on Sunday, the British quartet proved there are far worse candidates for the title of World's Biggest Rock Band, and even added oomph to some of the more wan selections from its new album, X&Y. The sing-along pop, decorated with guitar swells and repetitive piano figures adapted smartly from less mainstream acts, blended with Martin's Bono-worthy bursts of empathy and soulful falsetto, for an arena-scale sound that was full but never bloated.

If, like me, you think Chris Martin and his band, Coldplay, outlived their usefulness roughly five albums ago, you would have felt like the odd man out in an adoring capacity crowd of 69,000-and-change diehard Coldplay enthusiasts Saturday night at Lincoln Financial Field. It turns out that Coldplay's maudlin grandiosity still puts behinds in seats, a lot of behinds. Riding the razor-thin line between crowd-pleasing showmanship and shameless pandering right down the middle, Coldplay opened its show at the Linc with its trademark overwrought spectacle, the rockets' red glare of fireworks arching over the stadium as a strobe-flashed blizzard of confetti rained down on the ecstatic crowd.

HERSHEY, Pa. - St. Joseph's Prep faced a wide range of competition this season, including local heavyweight Archbishop Wood and out-of-state powers Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) and Jesuit College Prep (Texas), while advancing to Chocolate Town. So, as it showed in Sunday night's PIAA Class AAAA state final against District 7's Pittsburgh Central Catholic, Gabe Infante's squad was prepared for just about any kind of opponent. This time, the Hawks gradually solved a run-first attack, exposed the flaws in what had been a near lights-out defense, and stormed to statewide glory with a 35-10 triumph at frigid Hersheypark Stadium.

All night long, it seemed the last team to force its opponent to turn the ball over would win the battle of the top teams in the Catholic League Class AAAA football. With a little more than a minute and a half remaining, St. Joseph's Prep proved that theory right, as the Hawks defeated rival La Salle, 24-16, Saturday night in front of a packed house at Plymouth Whitemarsh. As many as 8,000 fans watched as La Salle (6-1 overall, 2-1 division), ranked No. 1 in Southeastern Pennsylvania by The Inquirer, and No. 3 Prep (6-0, 2-0)

St. Joseph's Prep coach Gabe Infante learned quickly that his concern was unfounded. Infante sensed that his football team, coming off a string of games against tough opponents, might face a "little bit of a lull" in Saturday night's matchup with Father Judge at Plymouth Whitemarsh. But two first-quarter touchdown receptions and a fumble recovery by junior captain John Reid put the Hawks on track for a 38-23 thumping of the Crusaders. So much for a lull. "Our kids seem really focused right now," said Infante, whose team improved to 6-1 overall and 4-0 in Catholic League AAAA.

Five years in, what is the Budweiser Made in America festival? A first-class hip-hop fest, for starters, that usually lands a big-name rock headliner - this year's catch being Coldplay, the British pop superstars who closed down the event Sunday - and has less success bringing in midlevel rock acts. It's a winning business proposition for festival curator Jay Z and his various enterprises, from his Roc Nation management company to the Tidal music service that live streamed the event all weekend.

Conscious uncoupling pays off We mocked Gwyneth Paltrow when she declared in 2014 that she and then-husband Chris Martin were parting ways in a super-amicable process called "conscious uncoupling. " There will be no acrimony, the duo said, but a harmonious divorce that would save their kids, Apple and Moses , from unnecessary trauma. The strategy worked wonders and the duo are still close friends, Gwyn says. "If you can't stay married, wouldn't the ideal be that you could still be a family and you could put aside your own stuff long enough to explore - what is this new family and who am I in it?"

AROUND THIS TIME last season, Jack Clements had a great view of the St. Joseph's Prep Class AAAA state title run. Then a junior backup quarterback, Clements watched as senior starter Chris Martin returned from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and led the Hawks to their first PIAA football championship. Fast forward little more than a year later - with Martin in attendance on Saturday - Clements hoisted the Hawks, 34-30, past a plucky Parkland squad. The Moorestown, N.J., resident finished with 266 passing yards, added another 42 on the ground and also accounted for all five of Prep's touchdowns (four passing, one rushing)

Okkervil River, March 28. This brittle, edgy folk-rock troupe (named after a Russian short story) is so literate, its lyrics stand alone as vivid poetry, short yarns.
