    So, here's the question: how much worse can these first pitches get? At some point someone is going to do something you never dreamed possible of a ceremonial first pitch, like strike oil, or completely forget to release the ball and fling themselves toward home plate. Either that, or they're just going to have to cancel first pitches altogether because this is getting out of hand. Read more...

    Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner wanted to waste a two-strike curveball in front of Rockies cleanup hitter Justin Morneau. He left the ball up just enough for Morneau to get a piece of it - the only mistake on an otherwise memorable night for the San Francisco left-hander. Bumgarner pitched a one-hitter and matched his career high of 13 strikeouts, and the Giants beat the Rockies 3-0 on Tuesday night to snap a three-game losing streak. ''I was going to try to bounce a curveball,'' Bumgarner said.

    Ike Davis didn't complain when the Pittsburgh Pirates told him they were going to eat into his playing time by experimenting with Pedro Alvarez at first base. Call it the byproduct of spending four-plus seasons with the New York Mets. He provided a needed jolt in a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday night, connecting for a tiebreaking three-run homer off St. Louis reliever Seth Maness in the eighth inning of a potentially costly 5-2 victory. Pirates star Andrew McCutchen left in the fifth inning because of discomfort in his left ribs.

''Don't focus on the results, but concentrate on each at-bat and each pitch and have fun competing.'' Porcello pitched eight impressive innings to set a career high for victories, and the Tigers snapped New York's five-game winning streak Tuesday night, beating the Yankees 5-2. Nathan has struggled all season, and he's had a strained relationship with Detroit fans of late, but the home crowd was chanting ''Let's go, Joe!'' in the ninth as the right-hander worked through his…

    NBA official, Dick Bavetta, is calling it quits after 39 years on the whistle in the league. He began his career in 1975; to put that in perspective for you, the NBA/ABA merger did not happen until 1976. Bavetta is 74 years old; he has earned some peace and quiet in his retirement years. Sports officials are not always held in the highest esteem. In the World Cup Game between Brazil and Colombia, many people opined that the officials on the field let the game get way out of control. I did not see that game because I was on my road-trip, but I did see a few “highlights” that indicated…

    I have a confession to make… When I wrote yesterday’s rant about the valuation of sports franchises and how Forbes might react to the Clippers having sold for $2B, I had exactly NO IDEA that Forbes was about to come out with new valuations for NFL franchises. No matter what it might look like, this is a perfect example of either serendipity or blind luck. The new valuations are out and Forbes now thinks the Dallas Cowboys are worth $3.2B; that is a cool $900M more than Forbes thought they were worth just about a year ago. Jerry Jones’ credit rating just went up. According to Forbes the…

That report got me thinking about Ballmer and his purchase of the LA Clippers for $2B and what that might mean for the future of sports franchises. Periodically, Forbes puts a value on each of the franchises in the major US sports. I have no way to judge the methodology by which they do that but I assume that they use a consistent yardstick across all the teams and all the sports since the bottom line is a…

    In 2010, when the St. Louis Rams drafted the former Heisman Trophy winner out of Oklahoma, the hype was through the roof. Sam Bradford was supposed to be the savoir to the franchise which was suffering for a number of years. Bradford would be the next great quarterback for the St. Louis Rams, the first since former MVP Kurt Warner. His potential had a high ceiling with many experts saying Bradford could be the next Peyton Manning.

    In what game reviewers are calling a bold and innovative move, the newest version of the popular Madden football game, Madden 15, will be so realistic, users will no longer have the ability to control the players on the field. “Every year, we strive to make a more realistic game.  Most of the time, this means improving graphics, or maybe improving player reactions or movements,” said EA Sports lead game designer, Phil Torbo.  “But then we thought, ‘Wait a minute, what’s so real about being able to control these guys – these world-class athletes, with the…

    THE HARD WAY "If you have two starting quarterbacks, you don't have any" is an old saying rooted in old logic. Older still, however, are Zeno's paradoxes, which include one of the earliest discussions of infinite divisibility. Nick Saban is merely extending that concept to his depth chart, and it will be revolutionary when Alabama has 16,777,216 co-starters at quarterback thirty years from now. There are practical concerns to that kind of advanced experimentation. Blake Sims and Jacob Coker have to share a scholarship, to start, but half a class load just means more time for film review.

    I’ll just flat out tell you that there are spoilers below regarding this short, so you might want to watch it before reading. After that we can discuss how Ben Ockrent & Jake Russell have used Alan Rickman to ruin childhood as we know it. This short film is written and directed by Ockrent and Russell, featuring Rickman as a very creepy version of the tooth fairy. And how is he creepy? Well it’s actually not too far off from the classic myths, except for the fact that he snorts this little girls tooth like Mel Gibson on a Thursday. It’s not twisted in the sense that…

Homer Simpson isn’t the first fictional character to take the challenge from Project ALS, losing out to Kermit The Frog, so I guess points are lost there. They’re gained back though with a random assortment of cold-themed characters dumped fro above. This video is perfect…

    Veteran runner could stay in training next year Cirrus Des Aigles and Treve recovering wellAustralia may, contrary to expectations, face some significant opposition when he lines up at Leopardstown for the Irish Champion Stakes next month. The race is being seriously considered for Al Kazeem, despite initial indications that the race could come too soon after his win at Windsor on Saturday night.Unfortunately there are no Group races over nine or 10 furlongs in England during September, so we have not ruled out the idea of returning to Leopardstown, said Al Kazeems trainer, Roger Charlton,…

    The Surfboard

  • The Swell of The Decade?

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    As a major south swell is schedule to arrive later tonight and peak tomorrow, surfers up and down the California coast are preparing for some major surf. Many forecasters are reporting that this will be one of the biggest swells to hit our coastline in more than a decade. Is this hype? Only time will tell.  While all of this is very exciting, it is also important to remember that the ocean is very powerful and surf conditions can change quite rapidly. Rip currents will look more like rivers and side shore currents will surely pose a challenge to swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers alike.

    For me personally, the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti is one of my favorite stops on the WCT each year. Especially when a solid swell presents itself; something which pushes many professional surfers outside of their comfort zones. This year was no different as the waves were stellar and the top surfers really put on a show.Of course, this included some heavy wipeouts, serious injuries and crucial rescues during the peak of the swell as those in the water were dedicated to charging hard. While Teahupoo can be a punishing wave for those who ride it, it surely creates an exciting event for…

    While the Wedge in Newport Beach may have looked more like a playful and fun beach break this morning which was spitting out perfect barrels for those who ventured into the lineup, one must also remember how dangerous of a spot it really is. With heavy closeouts breaking in waist deep water, wonky backwash and unpredictable sneaker sets, the wedge is a fun, scary and hard to predict beast. The lineup was extremely crowded with local standouts like Dylan Cotton and top professionals including Jamie O'Brien; both of which were absolutely charging! All photos by Chase Miller

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…
  • See The Game Through The Eyes Of The Quarterback

Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line.

  • How To Train The Runner's Brain - An Interview With Jason Fitzgerald

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:49 am
    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…

    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    Eitan Hefetz
    22 Aug 2014 | 9:59 am
    With sponsorship spending on endurance sports events exceeding the $108 million per year, its no wonder big business is sponsoring these events. The mid-to-high socio-economic class of endurance events participants attracts many brands to sponsor endurance events. Interestingly enough many of these big business brands are not the typical sporting brands one would expect to find. Would a laundry detergent brand make a good running race sponsor? How about a deodorant brand or a cellular carrier? Putting your brand’s logo in front of your target audience is one thing, while tying your…

  • Financial Planning and Pro Athletes: Players In Investment Trouble

    Steve Richards
    31 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    On the topic of financial planning, American economist Paul Samuelson once said, “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.” Of course, some athletes have no problems going to Vegas, and they take a lot more than $800 with them. For example, golfer John Daly once claimed that he lost between $50 million and $60 million on bad bets. If the rest of us had $50 million to lose, we’d probably invest in the stock market. In fact, a lot of athletes invest their millions in securities or in business ventures.

"Braxton made a lot of bad plays right with his athleticism." With that said, the fifth-ranked Buckeyes have a meeting scheduled for 5 p.m. tonight about how they can't control events, but can control their response to those events. Stepping in for Miller will be redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett, who Meyer said he saw great…

You don't simply replace a two-time Big Ten Player of the Year and Heisman candidate, after…
  • With Van Jefferson Out, Ohio State Focuses Receiver Recruiting

    Mike Rockstedt
    26 Aug 2014 | 11:15 am
    The wide receiver position has certainly become a point of emphasis for the staff at Ohio State. Urban Meyer's offense doesn't need giant receivers so much as it needs playmakers, but a receiver with the physical tools to shield off defenders or out-jump them for the ball is something any coach would covet. Ohio State has had a spotty record with recruiting this type of player. In the 2014 class, for instance, the Buckeyes smuggled Johnnie Dixon out of Florida, but they also missed on Josh Malone, who is playing for Butch Jones at Tennessee. The class of 2015 is off to a slow start at wide…

    Believe it or not, the Chicago Cubs have a bright future ahead of them... If everything goes as planned. And nothing has gone right for the Cubs in an extremely long time. But, there is always hope. And for the Cubs, their hope is in their farm system. Now, one might argue that the Twins have the best system, having Byron Buxton (the number 1 ranked prospect in baseball) and Miguel Sano (power-hitting 3rd baseman) at their disposal, but both are injury prone, as shown through the injuries they have both suffered this season. Others may say that the Houston Astros have a better system than the…

My reason for coming up with scenarios is because I would hope that the additional games would be the most compelling and logical ones possible. This is why in this scenario I would want the SEC to move to two permanent opponents rather than one permanent opponent with two in rotation. My first group of proposals is based upon the divisions as they are. I talked about potential realignment last May, so I don’t want to rehash all those arguments again, but I’ll add a few…

Perhaps, once again, it is time to ask the question:   How do basketball players and teams get measured and evaluated?  How should they be measured?  What does it take to win?   Points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocked shots, fouls.  Double-doubles, Triple-doubles.  That is the traditional currency in basketball.A further analysis might take a look at the…
  • Dirk Nowitzki: "I am a Warrior"

    30 Jan 2014 | 10:47 am
    "Dirk is all about German precision.  He’s like a surgeon out on the court. He sees the game in slow motion, he knows what’s going to happen and he knows what he needs to do.  And it’s that ability to understand not only what he needs to do but also context is what continues to make him special. "He makes it into a science. He’s a student of the game and, in a lot of respects, it helps him because, you know, you’ll see him all the time. He knows how to protect his body, which makes him look really awkward sometimes, but he understands context. When you’re younger,…

  • Byline to Finish Line: The process of making a fresh start

    26 Aug 2014 | 5:34 am
    This year, she is part of the back to school rush. That’s something she never saw happening. Nervousness and excitement mix in her eyes as she sips her Saturday morning coffee and talks about starting her degree program at the community college. By the end of three years she will be a surgical technologist, able to assist doctors with equipment in all kinds of settings. There’s a little bit of that healthy fear as she prepares to go back to school. Amy’s in her late 40s. She dropped out of school in the ninth grade and just recently passed her GED exam.

    Someday there should be a DC Women’s Soccer Hall of Fame, and Lori Lindsey should be in it. The Washington Freedom had a laudable tradition that I hope the Spirit eventually decide to emulate: they created a “Hall of Freedom”, an honor bestowed on former players and personnel “in recognition of exceptional achievements, dedication and service.” The first year’s honorees were the obvious ones: forward Mia Hamm, goalkeeper Siri Mullinix, midfielder (and later World Cup organizer) Steffi Jones, and the late David Vanole, goalkeeper coach during the…

    Tweet It’s time for another edition of Infographic Friday. Today’s entry comes to us from Marketplace Business as part of a recent article on the NFL’s interest in having artists pay to perform at halftime of the Super Bowl. I had a chance to talk to the author, Sally Herships, and she was nice enough to include a quote from me in the article.

Along with games every weekend (and some weekdays), many franchises are monetizing their stadiums on off-days and during the offseason by hosting stadium tours. While in the scheme of things, stadium tours might seem like a pretty small part of the business, it has several great benefits that could be easily overlooked: For some fans, the cost of tickets might simply be too expensive for…

    When it comes to starting some fitness routine, there are so many options that are available. Some people choose to join a class or a fitness program where they are forced to progress at a pace that works for the entire class. This method has its many disadvantages because the pace that works for the class may not be the pace that works for somebody else.  People who do not like this kind of training really choose to have a personal trainer. They normally design a routine that is specifically made to suit somebody’s needs. This routine keeps in mind the goal and the expectations of…

Basically, I am on the blogging DL for at least another week as I have a sheath tear in my right wrist. It is the same arm that kept me on the blogging DL four years ago when I had elbow ligament repair surgery due to sever tennis elbow.

    New York Yankees World Series 2009 Game 6 049 (Photo credit: Affiliate) The New York Yankees have 68 games, 41 at home and 27 on the road, left in the 2014 regular season. Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve. The Yankees will have to get better without ace Masahiro Tanaka for at least the next six weeks, but if Shane Greene’s arm continues to impress it could soften that blow a tad. But what seems most vital is that Brain…

    Reunited In Cleveland Former Washington Redskins QB Rex Grossman has signed with the Cleveland Browns in a move I’ve been anticipating for months. Grossman will reunite with former ‘Skins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. It seems like these two guys are joined at the hip. Grossman will become the Browns third string signal caller and become a mentor of sorts for QB’s Johnny Football and Brian Hoyer as they try to learn the Shanahan offensive system. I don’t think Grossman has much left as a player, but I think this is a good signing for the Browns. The biggest…

    The Washington Nationals are in the process of letting a golden opportunity to take total control of the N.L. East slip through their fingers. How they continue to let the Atlanta Braves slip past them game after game is mind-boggling to me. Like in last night’s 3-1 loss where pitcher Gio Gonzalez fails to cover first base on a ground ball that allowed the Braves to score the go ahead run when the inning would have been over if he had just executed the fundamentals. What’s he thinking? The Nationals went down to Atlanta with a 4.5 game lead over the rival Braves with a chance to…

    Just looking at this cover art it’s pretty clear what the song is about, the title isn’t super necessary. Glistening in white and black one-pieces, Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez look unreal on the cover for the remix of JLo’s song, “Booty.” With Iggy joining her on the track we knew it was going to heat up but this cover takes it to a new level, not to mention the catchy hook and fly beat that make this a dope, bouncy song. The ladies posted the picture to Instagram today and Iggy added a short clip from the video of a close up butt shot. The two have performed together where…

    26 Aug 2014 | 7:12 am
    The Red Sox had been riding a streak that they desperately wanted to get off, an 8 game losing streak.  The Sox had held leads in many of the games, but weren’t able to hold on to the lead into the final stretch.  Last night the Sox had the only remaining starter from the World Series team on the mound in Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz has done nothing but struggle this year and everyone was hoping he could right the ship in his start last night.  Clay did exactly that.  He pitched 8 shutout innings and was on the mound in the 9th looking for the complete game.  Clay wasn’t able…

    25 Aug 2014 | 5:52 am
    At this point I am almost grotesquely curious at how long this losing streak can last. What will be the magic elixir that will bring it to an end? In each of the games with the Mariners the Sox had the lead at least once, however when the 9 innings came and went the Sox would be looking down the barrel of a loss each and ever time. This time the Sox had Allen Webster on the mound and he just wasn’t able to capitalize when the Sox offense made up for his poor first inning and gave him the lead. The day also saw David Ortiz leave the game for the 2nd straight time with an injury, this…

  • 50 Cent No Longer Has The Worst First Pitch Of The Year Thanks To This Astros Fan

    Pete Blackburn
    26 Aug 2014 | 9:38 pm
    Your browser does not support iframes. A female Astros fan was invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday’s game against the Athletics and it did NOT go well. Like, at all. The woman basically spiked the ball into the ground, effectively letting 50 Cent off the hook for worst first pitch of the year. Fortunately for her, it happened in Houston…meaning nobody really saw it. The reaction from the Astros’ mascot, Orbit, is absolutely fantastic. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

    Pete Blackburn

    Mike Napoli might have hit the longest home run of the season on Tuesday night in Toronto, and I’m still not sure it would have ever come down if that third deck at Rogers Centre wasn’t in the way. Napoli absolutely launched the three-run blast in 10th inning off of the Blue Jays’ Sergio Santos and it traveled an approximate 452 feet. Seriously, though, you’re gonna need to see it to believe it. And even then you might not believe it. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

    The 2014 US Open is shaping up to be a very interesting tournament.  For me the main storyline is Roger Federer and his chance for another Grand Slam title.  Roger was so close at Wimbledon, losing an amazing 5 setter to world number 1 Novak Djokovic.  Going into that 5th set many fans though this was Roger’s chance at another Grand Slam, but it wasn’t to be.  I for one though still think he has a shot in a few more and his form right now leads me to believe he has a chance at the upcoming US Open.

  • Tigers win 3-team blockbuster

    Erik Voldness
    1 Aug 2014 | 8:49 am
    Yesterday was one of the more surprising trade deadlines in recent memory. There were several big trades that saw several roster shakeups, including Jon Lester heading from Boston to Oakland for Yoenis Cespedes. With Oakland acquiring arguably the two best pitchers available over the last month (Jeff Samarzdija being the other), one of their main competitors knew they needed to get involved in the arms race. And get involved the Tigers did.After weeks of David Price trade speculation, with a different "favorite" emerging seemingly daily, the Tigers came basically out of nowhere to land the Cy…

    Rumors emerged last night that the Cleveland Cavaliers have finally agreed to include Andrew Wiggins in any Kevin Love proposal. As a Wolves fan, this is the best case scenario assuming Love won't stay in Minnesota.Receiving a high-ceiling #1 overall pick, along with other young players and/or draft picks, gives the Wolves the best chance at building a consistent winner over the next few years. However, let's be clear here: Kevin Love is an elite player in basketball. If he were willing to resign with the Wolves rather than demanding a trade, he would't even be available. Cleveland wouldn't…

The article is terribly researched, and it reads like it was written in Greg Gutfeld's constant sarcastic idiocy.I'm not a soccer fan. Not at all.

General Manager Garth Lagerway will be without a contract at the end of the year. The plan early in the season was to play the season out, and see at the end of the year what would happen.

Okay, maybe it's mostly Cano who's up for a little tomfoolery, skylarking, and/or grabass. It's Beltre's fault for being so weird with his head. Cano's probably just like Mitch Hedberg with koalas. C'mon. Just let him pet the back of your head. And feed you a leaf.

    When a team trades its franchise player, it's expected that many people surrounding the franchise will treat it as a stone-cold bummer. It's rare to get anything approaching value for one of the top stars in the NBA, and swapping an established, excellent player for a clear rebuilding project doesn't always seem like a fair deal. It's not always good form to turn the player who pushed for the deal into an outright enemy, but it's understandable that fans would be a little ticked off. The team's owner, on the other hand, is usually expected to act with a little more decorum. On Wednesday,…

  • Di Maria: Real lied, I did not want to leave

    26 Aug 2014 | 9:22 pm
    LONDON, August 27- New Manchester United signing Angel di Maria has sensationally claimed he did not want to leave Real Madrid, but was left no choice by the La Liga club’s board. United signed Di Maria for a British record fee of 59.7 million pounds on Tuesday, but the winger revealed in an open letter to Madrid fans that it was not his intention to leave. Instead, Di Maria claimed “lies” had been told when both player and club were in disputes over a new contract. Here is the full transcript of the letter as it ran on Marca. An open Letter from Angel di María to all the…
  • MK Dons humiliate United in new low

    26 Aug 2014 | 9:14 pm
    MILTON KEYNES, August 26- Manchester United sank to new depths on Tuesday when they crashed out of the League Cup in the second round following a 4-0 defeat at third-division Milton Keynes Dons. United had announced the signing of Angel di Maria from Real Madrid in a British-record £59.7 million ($98 million, 75 million euros) deal shortly before kick-off, but they were brought down to earth with a painful bump as a second-string team fell apart at Stadium MK. Will Grigg scored either side of half-time for the League One side before substitute Benik Afobe added a brace of his own to leave a…

    LONDON, August 26- England midfielder Frank Lampard announced his retirement from international football after a career spanning 15 years on Tuesday. The 36-year-old’s 106th and final cap for his country came on June 23 when he captained England in their final World Cup game against Costa Rica. Lampard said in a statement released by his management company: “I have taken the decision to retire from international football. “It has been a very tough decision for me to make which is why I have given it so much thought since the World Cup.” His haul of international caps…
  • Giroud injury scare could force striker buy

    26 Aug 2014 | 1:06 am
    LONDON, August 26- Arsenal fear Olivier Giroud could be ruled out for as long as three months if a second scan confirms that he has a broken ankle. That would leave Arsène Wenger facing a race against time to sign a new striker before the transfer window shuts next Monday. Giroud sustained the injury in the dying seconds of the 2-2 draw at Everton after scoring Arsenal’s late equaliser. Arsenal are hoping Giroud has not sustained a fracture, but there is major concern at the Emirates that there is a break, after the Frenchman was sent for two scans. The club are mindful of the fact that a…

Daudi Kajembe, a former assistant coach with lower division side Sparki Youth, was set free in the Kenyan coastal city for lack of credible evidence. He was accused of attacking and injuring the private parts of division one referee, Martin Wekesa Shikuku on Sept. 22, 2012, allegedly impairing his child-bearing abilities when the official was about to send off a player from his team.

    The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for ways to reward their season ticket holders. The Teal Deals promotion gives season ticket holders deals around the city and in the stadium. One deal that I’m sure the city will love is the one where they can get half off on a concealed weapons class. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself. [KSK via @BurritoBrosShits] Only in Florida would a team offer a deal like this. I’m sure the Jags will have some people sign up just for this deal.

    Miami Marlins’ outfielder Giancarlo Stanton will be a free agent in two years. For the Marlins organization, they will have to make a decision on signing Stanton to a long-term deal or trading him before he hits free agency. With the recent push the Marlins are making towards the playoffs, you would think that Stanton might feel different about where the team is headed in the future. Well Stanton is happy about the push but still hasn’t forgotten about the past. The question was whether the events of this season had altered his top-down view of the organization. He’d raised…

    Former Milwaukee Bucks head coach Larry Drew has been tight-lipped about how he was treated by his former team. Drew was fired on June 30 in favor of Jason Kidd in a very unprofessional way. It was so unprofessional that it rubbed many people the wrong way. Drew, who is now an assistant coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers, says he is moving forward but was blindsided with the way he was fired. “From their (the owners’) standpoint, there’s no set time for these type of things,” Drew said in an interview with the Journal Sentinel. “It caught me in a position when I…

    Miami Heat rookie point guard Shabazz Napier has had a crazy summer. When he was drafted by the Heat, most people believe LeBron James wanted him because he loved Napier’s game. Then James left for Cleveland while Napier struggled during  NBA summer league. Even with his early struggles, Napier is not panicking because he knows what the problem is. Napier believes the ball is the reason for his early struggles in the NBA. “I just want to continue to get better at everything,” Napier said. “But my biggest thing is getting comfortable with that basketball.

    Growing up playing baseball in the back yard with my brother provided some of my most memorable experiences from childhood. I remember the time we were playing slow pitch wiffle ball and I got mad (I was probably losing), so I decided to break the rules and wing a fastball in there. Without flinching, my brother smacked that wiffle ball out of our yard, across the street and into the tree tops of our neighbors. In the history of baseball there has probably never been a pitcher who celebrated an opposing player’s home run like I did that day. But when my brother hit that home run, the…

    RUSSIA, REALLY?: Today, American Vic Wild won his second snowboarding gold medal of the Olympic Games while competing for Russia. Wild, who married a Russian Olympian, is nothing short of a total athletic traitor. I'm sure Wild would maintain he has the right to do whatever he wants within the rules of international competition. I maintain that I have the right to voice whatever opinion I have of his reprehensible decision.

Both sports involve a lot of ice, something that last time I checked, doesn't naturally exist in a large part of the United States at anytime during the year. But what's really interesting is that the national sport of our wonderful neighbors to the north is neither of the sports at which they excelled in Sochi.

    Maddux Goes Logo-less:  Greg Maddux has decided not to have a logo on the cap his Baseball Hall of Fame bust will bear. As a Braves fan, I would have liked him to have chosen an Atlanta logo, but he played eleven or twelve seasons with each team and had similar success from a statistical perspective. The main difference was that the Braves were winning division titles, pennants and a World Series during his tenure in Atlanta. Of course, the Cubs' frustrations are well documented, so it certainly wasn't Greg Maddux' s fault that they failed to win a title during his two stints in Chicago.

  • Receiver Skills Are Many, Getting Off The Jam is One

    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

    21 Jul 2014 | 1:17 am
    Teaching an offensive line to work together is the most vital part to the success of an offense. From pass blocking to picking up a blitzing defensive player, a lineman must be ready to help his fellow teammate. One key fundamental which I feel should be taught is the double team. This can be done between the center and guard, guard and tackle, as well as tackle and TE. In my opinion the double team starts from the split between the lineman. If the lineman are too far apart, it will take too long for them to work together. By the time they do get to a position where they can function as one,…

  • College Football System Picks Week 1

    One of the longest-tenured opening week systems for college football took it on the chin last year, as bowl teams from the previous season who lost outright as 7-point or larger favorites turned in a dismal 0-3 record in 2013 after going 34-16 between 1990 and 2012. While the system is still a solid 34-19 (64%) over the years, last season’s effort does give a little bit of a pause, especially when you look at the lines for the teams that fall into the pattern this season. There were an amazing five teams who were favored by a touchdown or more in the bowl games last year that were defeated…

    Although several of our trends didn’t fare particularly well last week, we were able to nab Houston as a featured play and run our record to 3-1 in the preseason. On the basis of trends alone Chicago would have been the play, but Seattle’s impressive preseason record under Pete Carroll was enough to keep us away from the Bears. The ability to pass on a game with conflicting trends is the one of the biggest advantages you have over the bookmaker. Jumping ahead to Week No. 4, there has been a shift in tendencies the past few years and favorites have been a profitable wager the past three…

Second in line of my favorites I would say is definitely Brooks. I have had a few pairs of the Ghost and the Glycerin through the years.  A few months ago I bought both a pair of Saucony Triumphs and a pair of Brooks Glycerin. Both are great shoes with a lot of cushioning.  They are top of the line for both brands, and worth every penny. My issue with the last…

So when it does come time to buy running clothes you want to spend your money on things you can get the most use out of.

Even then, he was talking about a focus on technique. “We have got to stay on [the players],” he said, “and make sure they’re disciplined and not jumping off-sides and running to the ball on defense and offensively finishing blocks and finishing runs and running the routes at the right depth.

    Welcome to “Italy Rewind,” our player-by-player recap and video feature from Michigan’s four-game tour of Italy. Previously: Zak Irvin, Ricky Doyle & Kameron Chatman John Beilein has made a career out of his ability to recruit shooters and his perimeter-oriented offense has always been stereotyped by the three-point shot. While the three is still ever-present in Beilein’s offense, recent years have seen the rise of the playmaker.  Ball screens and isolation sets have allowed players like Trey Burke, Darius Morris, Nik Stauskas and Caris LeVert to rise to prominence due to…

Previously: Zak Irvin, Ricky Doyle Kameron Chatman is going to play the same position that Glenn Robinson III filled for the past two seasons, but he’s going to provide a very different look. Chatman isn’t the athlete that Robinson is and he’s certainly not going to rack up as many highlight dunks, but his unique skill set could actually be a better fit for the four position in Michigan’s offense. There’s a very natural quality to Chatman’s game. He fits in,…

First: Zak Irvin The question all off-season has been whether Zak Irvin has diversified his game and is more than ‘just a shooter’. The numbers last season proved that Irvin was essentially ‘just a shooter’, but this is a new year and a new role for the 6-foot-6 wing. He’s added 15 pounds of muscle and five inches to his vertical leap and if Michigan’s trip to Italy is any barometer, he’s going to score points in bunches this season. For all intents and…

  • UNPACKIN’ it MINUTE: Truth or Consequences?

    22 Aug 2014 | 6:13 pm
    This week former star pitcher, Curt Shilling, opened up about his battle with mouth cancer. He believes ‘unquestionably’ that chewing tobacco is what gave him cancer, and regrets taking that very first dip. Unfortunately, the consequences of his 30-year habit are a harsh reality. Although Curt’s cancer is in remission, he has paid a high price in having to endure long and painful treatments. We often trick ourselves into thinking that our actions are not that bad, and tell ourselves that we’ll stop when we’re older…or when we get married…or when we have kids. In our…

  • 11 Phrases Successful Athletes Never Say On Game Day

    25 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Short and sweet. Here are 11 phrases successful athletes never say one game day (and probably not on any other day either)… Successful athletes don’t look for something to blame. They look and their performance, think about how they can do better next time, and work on it.  They don’t stay focused on the “coulda, woulda, shouldas.” No matter what, they want to do their best and help their team in any way they can, no matter what that may entail, no matter who is “supposed” to do it or not. Successful athletes LOVE a challenge and WANT the ball. They…

    I shared my thoughts on social media before. This topic came up again when I saw this headline in my Facebook Newsfeed… Georgia coach Mark Richt dropped a recruit because of his tweetsUnder that it said, “Twitter is a recruiting nightmare.” I disagree. Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices. The bottom line is, YOUR choices affect opportunities you receive and ones you get taken away from you. Don’t blame the tool. This very same tool can HELP you…

    I shared this thought with my 14yo daughter the other night. I let her know I was happy she out works and out trains a lot of her teammates, BUT… I encouraged her to not get complacent with that, to aim higher. After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

She played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

In college football, the Coaches Poll is made up of 62 head coaches from BCS schools and includes many familiar names like LSU’s Les Miles, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer and Alabama’s Nick Saban. Most fans believe that based on the knowledge and insight of these coaches, the ranking systems must be…

It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained.

    By Jordan SchoonDespite losing its stranglehold on the crystal ball after a seven year period of dominance, the SEC was still college football's premier conference in 2013.  That may sound like a homerific statement to say on the surface, but it holds up even outside of my personal bias.  The conference placed seven teams in final AP Top 25 poll including three of the top five.  The next closest conference was the Pac-12 at six teams, but the closest to the top was Oregon at number nine.  For those who put weight into bowl results the conference finished with the best…

    By Jordan SchoonLife as a Cubs fan has never been easy and has rarely been enjoyable.  Most years the team is miserable, but even the best Cubs experiences end in brutal disappointment.  See the 2003 NLCS where I cried in my bed for a half hour after both the Bartman game and game seven, and the 2008 NLDS against the Dodgers where I literally smashed a Rubix Cube against the wall in frustration.  I have generally been on board with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer's implosion and rebuild of the Cubs, but this summer I've spent way too much time in internal dialogue wondering whether…

    Gone are they days when a school could simply request that all of the fans in attendance where the same color shirts in an attempt to (Color)-Out the other team. We’ve seen White-outs in Louisville, which gives Rick Pitino an excuse to wear his Colonel Sanders costume, we’ve seen Orange-outs in the Dome, and we’ve seen black-outs at virtually every frat party we’ve been to (rimshot!). But, the University of North Carolina recently released their latest innovation in color coordinated seating for their game against San Diego St., significantly upping the ante by asking…

The excitement of Manchester United fans after the £59.7m signing of Angel di Maria could be dampened by the fact the midfielder didn’t actually want to leave Real Madrid.

As men played for their jobs and coaches watched, deciding who to keep, I issued a challenge to four men: Go out and win the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending). None paid any attention, of course — they had careers and livelihoods to worry about — but  it certainly seemed like one did. It wasn’t Greg Hickman.

In the months since then they’ve sacked and celebrated and ran and Jedded their way into our consciousness. Now, in three days, it’s possible one of these players will never be anonymous again (in this small corner of the internet).

As a senior he played in the Army All-American Bowl. Gatorade named him their Player of the Year in Tennessee. Rivals ranked him a four-star recruit and the No. 2 player in the state. With other SEC offers on the table, he chose to stay home, signing with the University of Tennessee. He made his first start as a freshman, in an Outback Bowl loss to Penn State.

The organization thinks highly enough of Stroman that they’ve already promoted him to the big leagues and he made his first career start last week, earning a victory thanks to a highly potent offense as of late. The Blue Jays beat the Royals, 12-2, and Stroman was elated. “It was pretty special,” Stroman…

    By Jordan SchoonThe summer of 2014 will be looked back on similarly to 2010 in the way that the competitive landscape of the NBA drastically shifted.  While there were certainly interesting moves and repercussions out west, the top tier teams (OKC, Spurs, Clips, etc.) largely remained in similar positions.  The West will be another bloodbath next season, but the teams competing for playoff spots should remain static.  The big changes happened in the lowly Eastern Conference, which now looks much more open and slightly more competitive for the upcoming season.  Miami and…

    Most of Fountain Square Brewery‘s bottles have a consistent label design with a periodic table symbol, the beer style clearly shown with the same font, and some pleasing artwork. All of them look really nice and it makes for consistent branding, but my favorite of their labels is Soul Ride’s, which diverges from this norm. I guess there isn’t really an appropriate element for a periodic table symbol for Soul Ride, so that was left out. The artwork takes up more space and is more interesting on this label, and the beer style is smaller and integrated with the art. The label…

Today, the Redskins released WR Rashad Ross, TE Matt Veldman and OL Mike McGlynn.  Neither Ross or Veldman had a realistic chance to crack the 53 man roster.  McGlynn was more of a story of simply getting beat out by others on the roster.

    Veteran pitcher A.J. Burnett was too much for Washington on Monday night, as the Phils beat the Nats 3-2 in Philadelphia. Despite the loss, the Nationals maintain a 7.5 game lead in the National League East. The 37 year old Burnett struck out a dozen, scattering three hits and issuing only a single walk in seven innings of work. Burnett’s only mistake, a solo home run by Anthony Rendon in the sixth inning. Your browser does not support iframes.

What’s that, Coach? You want me to keep practicing? An apple a day makes basketball even more fun to play! You say “cheese,” I say “banana.” It takes two. Between games, it’s time to refuel.

  • Coach Smart: The Camp’s Driving Force

    6 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    By Otesa Miles The main reason Shaka Smart Basketball Camps sells out is Coach Shaka Smart. VCU’s head basketball coach brings the dedication, energy and upbeat basketball attitude that has led to a winning record his five years in Richmond. Campers enjoy learning from Coach Smart and he ensures that each camp staff member shares his enthusiasm for the game. The same way Coach Smart works out with the VCU Men’s Basketball Team, he gets on the floor to work out with campers. Whether its planks or pushups Coach Smart motivates with his words and actions.

     Photo by Steven Casanova By Otesa Miles At Shaka Smart Basketball Camp, each group of 10 campers works with a dedicated, experienced basketball coach. The same is true when playing for teams from school, recreation centers and other organizations. But what should a young player do when they aren’t playing “organized” basketball? Be your own coach. That’s right. You are responsible for practicing what you’ve learned and working to get better. Here are some tips on coaching yourself: Figure out what needs improvement. Do you need to work on dribbling with your non-dominant hand?

    Much has been made of the controversy surrounding the Spurs Game 1 victory over the Miami Heat when LeBron James left the game in the 4th quarter due to leg cramping. Athletes, analysts and fans alike were criticizing LeBron James for bailing out on his team, not b. Using Kobe as a comparison shooting free throws with a ruptured achilles and walking off under his own power. I know I am in the minority with this, but LeBron James was justifyable leaving the game with cramps.

That incarnation of Kimber went under, and the new company of that name has none of the problems that doomed its ancestor. It started with a series of fine automatic pistols based on the Model 1911 Colt and has now gotten back into the rimfire rifle business. The latest Kimber .22s are a completely new design.

However, in scoring 102 Premiership goals last season, and finishing with a + 65 goal difference (14 better than nearest rivals Liverpool), the two-point winning gap, perhaps, didn’t truly reflect their overall superiority.

He shoots when it feels right. He may continue to do that, but it won’t be within the framework of Phil Jackson’s triangle offense. Anthony will be expected to facilitate movement. He’ll need to get open off the ball, and when he’s got the ball, he needs to find others that are doing the same. It’s not that Carmelo can’t do these things. It’s that historically,…

    Last year, the Denver Broncos had one of the greatest passing offenses in NFL history. Peyton Manning set an NFL single-season record for touchdown passes and passing yards, and the Broncos became the first team to score 600 points in a season. Likewise, the 2013 Seattle Seahawks pass defense was one of the best of all time. (The Broncos can attest to that.)The only thing more incredible than their performances last year would be if the Broncos and Seahawks were to do it again. Excellence can only last so long, and by their very nature, historically dominant performances are difficult to…

  • Wolves’ Glen Taylor Not Sure Kevin Love Is Best Deal For Cavaliers

    Alex Lowe
    26 Aug 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Now that Kevin Love is officially headed to Cleveland, it’s time for everyone to weigh in on how this trade will affect the Cavaliers’ chances this upcoming season. That was expected from analysts and maybe players from other teams, but I didn’t expect to hear the thoughts of Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor on the matter. But that’s exactly what we got when he sat down with ESPN’s Derek Wetmore. “I question Kevin if this is going to be the best deal for him because I think he’s going to be the third player on a team. I don’t think he’s…
  • Kelvin Benjamin: The Next Elite Receiver

    Jack Conness
    26 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Saying anyone is going to be the next Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Dez Bryant, etc. is obviously a tough thing to predict. Johnson is a once-in-a-generation type player with incredible size, speed, and talent not many people in the world possess. Thomas, Marshall, and Bryant are all extremely gifted and talented receivers that are just a notch below Calvin, but are still among the elite receivers in the NFL. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Kelvin Benjamin, the Carolina Panthers’ 1st round pick (28th overall), will join that group of All-Pro…
  • The Option Not Taken: NFL Rookie Contract Decisions

    Cale Finta
    25 Aug 2014 | 6:28 am
    The 2014 offseason marked the first season in which the NFL’s fifth-year option was available for eligible players. Though the league’s 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement brought a drastic decrease in rookie salaries, it altered the rookie contract to a four-year commitment, allowing players to enter negotiations with teams sooner than they had been able to in previous years.  With that predetermined four-year deal came a new fifth-year option, which allows teams to delay negotiations with first-round picks by placing a one-year extension (with a significant pay increase in that year)…

  • Do Stretch Bigs Hurt Their Teams?

    John Slaybaugh
    22 Aug 2014 | 5:32 am
    Kirk Goldsberry, a writer for Grantland, wrote a great article about Kevin Love a while ago and if you haven’t read it you should. The gist of it is that Kevin Love’s offensive game has been moving out, and now he takes a large portion of his shots from behind the three point line. Since he is so far away from the basket he is reducing the chance that his team gets an offensive rebound. What Goldsberry suggests is that this hurts the team more than it helps. In the case of Kevin Love this is debatable. Love put up MVP type numbers last season so it’s hard to say that he really hurt…

    Greg Pokriki

    As a 19-year-old born and raised in Buffalo, it is hard to say I have experienced any Buffalo Bills team to necessarily brag about. Though I was alive for our last playoff run I am quite sure I was more worried about escaping my older brother’s Razor Ramon wrestling imitations than the future employment outlook of special teams coach Bruce DeHaven.   However, my lack of successful football fandom has not in any way stopped my father from reciting his many stories of his very own Buffalo Bills. You would think Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, and Bruce Smith have been living in my…
  • Buffalo Bills Preseason Game 3 Recap

    Bills 16     Steelers 19 I knew after the decent game we had prior that it was time to see our starters score a touchdown in this one. The game starts with Pittsburgh kicking off and I am shocked when the kick returner is C.J. Spiller. Isn’t he our starting running back? What the heck is Doug Marrone thinking? If this resulted in an injury to Spiller you know Marrone would be on the hot seat. This is one of those calls like the 10 per game we questioned in every game Dick Jauron coached! Spiller received the kick and runs through some pretty heavy traffic all the way to our…

    Bills 20       Panthers 18 Well Doug Marrone showed us he really wanted to win with playing his starters (who needed the work) until the eleven minute mark of the second quarter. The offense looked sharp immediately going down the field with precision. Motivated by running backs waiting to shine, C.J. Spiller ran the first play 14 yards. He then had a second carry for a few. Then we saw EJ finally get the ball to Sammy Watkins and this beauty went for 14 yards and another first down. C.J. then runs for 3 and Sammy catches his second catch for 5 yards. EJ looks like he is in…

At about halftime, it’s as much fun as watching a turtle walk around aimlessly with no destination in mind!But we are Buffalo Bills fans and we painfully watch most of the game (have to be honest) as we are so hungry to see our team look good and yes, win. Did I say win? Marv Levy did not give a hoot about the preseason and played our stars sparingly to say the least. He knew what we had and just wanted to see and evaluate our rookies. Doug Marrone actually told the press how upset he was at not winning our…

    Photo Credit: I offer up an analogy for this upcoming season.  The Buffalo Sabres were downright awful at times during their initial season, while during the end of October into the first week of November of that year the Sabers were getting the snot kicked outta them by virtually everyone. Back to back games out west against the Canucks and Golden Seals where we lost 7-2 and 6-1 respectively. Finishing up the west coast tour with two more losses, being out-scored 8-3, we limped back East into Montreal who had shut us out earlier in the season at home 3-0. Which was part of…

    The first match of the 5-match ODI series between England and India was washed out due to intensive rain at Bristol. At present, as it stands, apparently the series has gone down to a 4-match series. The second ODI will be played tomorrow at Cardiff. India are desperate to make a bounce back in their tour to England after a poor performance in the test series where they were literally humiliated by the hosts and India lost the test series by a margin of 1-3.

    For eight-and-a-half innings, fans mumbled about how the “same old Royals” were back. The attendance of just over 13,000 wasn’t good enough for some. The offense was sputtering, plating just two runs in their last 28 innings. The team looked lifeless, hacking away at balls and making mental mistakes like getting picked off. Then, with one swing, Alex Gordon provided the Royals’ biggest play in the last 20 years. Gordon hammered a hanging slider from Glen Perkins just over the right-center wall for his second-career walk-off homer, propelling the Royals to a 2-1 victory over the…

    Kansas City desperately needed someone to step up, and guide their team through a pennant chase. Who better to do so than James Shields? In seven starts prior to the match against the Yankees, Shields is 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA. Three years ago with the Tampa Bay Rays, Shields did the same thing. In July of 2011, Juego posted a 5.40 ERA, and posted a record of 1-4. Things would turn around for Shields in 2011, just like this year. After posting an ERA of nearly six in July of 2011, James came back in August and September and posted a 2.45 ERA with seven wins and three losses. Though we have not…
  • Early Projections and the Royals Current Streak

    Twenty-four and six! Amazing. It’s been an amazing run. I can’t remember too many streaks like it. Although the 1977 Royals had a few that had to be that good or even better. It begs a big question: are the projections that suggested the Royals were just an average team wrong? The simplest way of evaluating that is to ask: what are the odds that a coin flipped thirty times will return 24 or more heads. Answer: 1 in 1400, approximately. There are 133 sets of 30 games in a 162 game season. So an average team should be able to pop such a streak once every ten or eleven seasons. I…

Kansas City (72-56) stretched their lead in the AL Central out to a full three games by doubling up the Texas Rangers on Saturday night, 6-3. Just three batters into the game, Alex Gordon put the Royals on the board with a towering home run off of the right-field foul pole. The two-time All Star left fielder tied Salvador Perez for the team lead with 15 long balls. Texas got the run right back, and the score remain deadlocked at one until the fifth inning.

    I guess Richie Incognito didn’t impress Bucs management as much as he should have, because today the Bucs agreed to a deal with the Patriots for six-time Pro Bowler Logan Mankins. The Bucs are giving up a 2015 fourth-round draft pick, and tight end Tim Wright in exchange for Mankins. Mankins, who is a better run-blocker than a pass-blocker, was ranked 18th among all guards by Pro Football Focus which would still make him one of the best offensive lineman on the Bucs. The post Patriots Trade Logan Mankins To Bucs appeared first on Overtime.

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a bonafide wheelin‘n’dealin‘ son of a gun organization. If you need a trade partner look no further then Sam Hinkie and company. Earlier today Marc Stein of ESPN reported that the 76ers had traded for Hasheem Thabeet and cash considerations from the Oklahoma City Thunder. If you thought you figured out what was going on you didn’t because just when you think you have the answers, Hinkie changes the questions. The 76ers planned to waived Thabeet and pocket the loot. See Thabeet had signed a two-year deal with an option for a third back in 2012…

    Atletico Madrid Head Coach, Diego Simeone, 44, has been warranted with an eight-game sanction by the RFEF (Real Federacion Espanola de Futbol) following the Argentine’s unprofessional conduct in the Supercopa de Espana showdown against bitter rivals Real Madrid; Simeone was sent off by Fernandez Borbalan after 25 minutes of action in the contest.

    Consider all the reasons critics say Qatar shouldn’t have been awarded World Cup 2022 by FIFA’s executive committee 3 1/2 years ago. There’s the heat: The average high temperature in mid-July, when the final is currently scheduled, is 106 degrees, and FIFA’s own technical report branded Qatar’s climate “a potential health risk” for players. There are the allegations of corruption: The Sunday Times of London reported last month that a Qatari official had paid millions of dollars to FIFA voters and influencers in exchange for World Cup votes. (The Qataris deny this.) And then…

    Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena may seem like a strange venue for a collosal ice hockey grudge match. And it was fairly safe to say that no-one in the crowd was expecting Gretzky, Federov or Lemieux to be turning out either. In fact a Kane, Quick or Boychuck would have sufficed; instead we got to experience the talents of Zenon Konopka, Emerson Etem, Tyler Bunz and Andrew Gordon (a late replacement for the world renown Kyle Quincey). When I heard the line-ups for the two teams those immortal lines from Major League were ringing through my ears – “Not bad for a couple of…

    So the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) has finally pushed the panic button and decided to replace ‘under fire‘ head coach, K. Dharmaraj with Project 2016 coach, A. Arulselvaraj, albeit the appointment is just an interim measure. The face-saving move with Dharmaraj as a “scapegoat” to me is an act of cowardice, designed to appease the fans after a disastrous World Cup campaign and shameful performances at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It would have been better for the MHC to stick by their man for at least another year after they decided to give…

Percy Harvin has retired but that shouldn't impact the offense too much as he wasn't that big of a factor last year.

Graham had appealed the Tight End tag the New Orleans Saints placed on him because he felt he was not a tight end and was used as a wide receiver. The difference in the two franchise tag amounts is substantial, maybe not for Jimmy Graham, but for most of us, as a tight end the tag would pay Graham $7.035 million, and as a tagged wide-receiver $12.312 million dollars. The argument that Graham is a tight end is clear, at least to the arbitrator, Graham was drafted as a tight end, has been elected to Pro…
