    31 Oct 2014 | 6:21 am
    Shortly after showering, and maybe rinsing off a forgettable performance, LeBron James smiled and laughed as he dressed for a flight to Chicago. It may take Cleveland a little longer. This championship-deprived city, which had waited months to celebrate James' return from Miami with a rip-roaring party, was in a state of shock following Cleveland's 95-90 loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday night. Following an emotional pregame, which included him reprising the signature ''chalk toss'' routine he made famous during his first stint with the Cavs, James could hardly do anything right.

    The Clippers didn't shoot well, couldn't build more than a 10-point lead, and still managed to usher in the Steve Ballmer era with a victory for their new owner. Blake Griffin scored 23 points, making two free throws with five seconds left, and Chris Paul added 22 in a season-opening 93-90 win Thursday over the Oklahoma City Thunder, who lost another star to injury when Russell Westbrook broke his right hand. ''It was pretty ugly,'' Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. He paid a record $2 billion to buy the team after 33-year owner Donald Sterling was banned for life by the NBA for racist remarks.

Having said that, let me make a few observations from afar based on what has been reported: This business went on for about two decades. How this all managed to “stay under the radar” when students were obviously putting one over on “the system” is miraculous. Or maybe, people…

    The ship has sailed on Washington Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins. Once an overrated commodity in the offseason the Redskins were unable to pull the trigger on a trade and will now suffer. The Redskins’ backup quarterback drew interest from a number of teams during the 2014 NFL Draft, but none of them interested general manager Bruce Allen. One interested party, the Cleveland Browns, offered a fourth round pick during the draft according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. The Redskins were reportedly looking for a second-round selection or an allpro NFL selection. Things…

    Despite the news you hear, it’s not the record-breaking performances, stats, or winning records that Peyton Manning’s legacy should be judged on. What makes Peyton Manning the greatest quarterback ever to play in the NFL are the little things. Things that not every fan may notice. To many, it’s his accomplishments they will focus on and the upcoming records he could break. Odds are the allpro will break these records in only a matter of time. Manning is now under 5,000 yards, 1,500 pass attempts, and 600 completions short of Brett Favre for all-time passing records.

Manning is not an unstoppable captain of a team prepared to steamroll the remainder of their opponents. He is one of the best quarterbacks ever, yes, but even his latest achievement does not make him the greatest of all time. Using one word for each of his touchdowns, here’s…

    A SPECIAL BIRTHDAY FOR A SPECIAL GHOUL HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICK SABAN He turns 63 today. TALKIN' BOUT THE NOLES. In yet another triumphant performance against all odds against a vastly superior opponent, the Florida State Seminoles prevailed again as they overcame a 21-0 first half deficit to defeat the mighty Louisville Cardinals. Beloved coach Jimbo Fisher's halftime adjustments were key to the win, with the Seminoles racking up hard-hitting yards on the ground and ultimately going on a 42-10 run to finish the game. America's team now gets extra rest before facing noted ACC power UVA next…

Saints had a nice looking opening drive that got derailed by a red zone interception after a Drew Brees pass caromed off the hands of Kenny Stills and a Panthers DB, flew 10 yards in the air and was picked off for a FAT GUY INTERCEPTION by Dwan Edwards. Carolina picked up three first downs on the ensuing drive but it was only enough to finish just outside field goal range. At that point, Cam Newton was shown spitting up blood on the sideline due to a cut on his tongue. Another…

    Seven horses have been declared for the first major race of the core jumps season, plus tips for Fridays actionThe Charlie Hall has been reduced to seven runners at the overnight stage, so, as anticipated on here earlier in the week, each-way players are reduced to hoping for two places at a quarter the odds. From a betting perspective, its hardly ideal for one of the good early races of the core jumps season but it may be that there are more non-runners to come because the going at Wetherby is good, good to soft in places after little recent rain and well find it today whether it might…

    The Melbourne Cup is as popular as ever but the sport seems at odds with an increasingly urbanised and risk averse societyEarlier this month, Melbourne motorists pondered a billboard paid for by the Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses. It wasnt up for long. For racing enthusiasts, the image of a dead thoroughbred just a few furlongs from Flemington was sacrilege. As always, there was scant chance of them reaching any sort of middle ground with the animal rights protesters. As far as horse racing folk are concerned, the placard wavers wouldnt know what a horse was if it trotted into…

    In the digital age, where speed and efficiency dominate, film has become more and more rare. This is especially true among surfer photographers who often fill up numerous memory cards during a surf trip and don't have the space or time to hassle with hundreds of rolls of film. In fact, I have yet to see very many surf photographers use film in the past 10 years, besides lifestyle and portrait images. Mainly because of the rapid fire capabilities that DSLR's have for action sport photo sequences which ensure that you get the best shot possible. However, the biggest drawback is that digital…

    After last night’s packed NHL schedule, we’re getting relatively few matchups on the slate tonight (four). That said, we should be seeing some interesting things out there on the ice in the coming hours. Let’s take our daily look around the league and check out some of the notable players out there. Chris Kunitz, LW, Pittsburgh Penguins: One of the marquis matchups on the schedule last night didn’t end up being very close.

Here’s the latest. Knicks-Cavaliers: It seemed like the moment got too big for the Cavaliers.

Normally this rivalry doesn’t get out of the state as it goes for popularity, but this year it could determine who goes to the College Football Playoff. While both teams could still get in regardless of who loses this game, it is safer for the team to just win and insert themselves into the final four.

    Sporting events can be extremely profitable for the right company or entrepreneur. Additionally, sporting events offer a worthwhile sponsorship opportunity to marketers who want to reap the benefits of being seen by attendees. Unfortunately, getting started won’t be easy – nor will it be cheap. After initial costs and plans are laid out, there’s even more to think about in terms of hosting, promotion, permits, zonings; and the list continues on. If you think you can handle all the dilemmas that may (and probably will) arise, you’re ready to host your own sporting event. Sporting…

Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience.

    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

If they're a really bad team or — you know — on videotape they're awful you've got to be creative,” he said Wednesday. “And I've done that where we didn't even show film; you just kind of chew them out or something like that and coach them a little harder.” With a game against a lowly Illinois Saturday night, Meyer said he hasn’t had to use those tactics with Ohio State, but it’s hard to imagine the…

    Tweet Today’s post is courtesy of guest blogger Neda Tabatabaie. Back in 2005 when I got my first job in the Sports Industry, the NHL had just gone through its first lockout. One year without hockey….I really don’t know how Canadians survived! After the lockout was over, MLSE hired 100+ people within a few months, many of whom were new to the Sports Industry. As part of the transition into the organization, we had “training camps”, basically classes on different topics relating to the business and the industry.

Essentially, if you purchase a ticket at the “UWin” price for the first non-conference men’s basketball game, you get a free ticket to the next home game, and you can continue to get free tickets to each subsequent non-conference game as long as Rutgers wins. Historically, Rutgers men’s basketball has not been a very competitive program, so this is an interesting way to drive interest in these early…

    Here goes nothing. I'm not predicting who wins shootouts or not, so this is regulation points only. Add in six points to every team if you want to give them all an average number of shootout wins. Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

  • Red Sox Bring Back Koji

    Matt O'Donnell
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:54 am
    The Red Sox have signed relief pitcher Koji Uehara to a 2-year $18 million dollar contract.  The Sox had exclusive rights to negotiate with him until Tuesday and were able to work out the deal before other teams got in the mix. Koji went from unhittable during 2013 and part of 2014 to an inconsistent reliever in the second half of 2014.  Most of this can be blamed on a lower back injury that seems to be better now.  Koji was able to have a few good innings at the end of the season which gave the team confidence that he can once again be the dominant pitcher he was in 2013.

    The Red Sox’ potent bats, so quiet in two losses in Cleveland, exploded at Fenway to tie the series 2-2. The team got another jolt before game 3 when it was announced that Nomar Garciaparra would sit with a sore wrist. But the Sox, behind Ramon Martinez and Derek Lowe, stayed close and put it away with 6 in the seventh for a 9-3 win.  John Valentin, hitless in his first 10 at bats, had a tie-breaking homer in the sixth. Val then shook off an error in the top of inning 7 with a two-run double in the bottom half, followed by a three-run shot from Brian Daubach to make it 8-3. Indians…
  • Sox 99 – Division Series

    17 Oct 2014 | 7:41 pm
    The Red Sox ended the 99 season as the AL wild card, riding a hot September to finish 94-68. They finished 4 games behind the Yankees and 7 ahead of the Oakland A’s, their top WC challengers. It was the most wins for Boston since 1986. The Sox were paced by two men with tremendous seasons. Pedro Martinez went 23-4, capturing a unanimous Cy Young. He accomplished the pitchers’ triple crown, topping the league in wins, ERA, and strikeouts. Pedro was first or second in 11 league pitching categories, and set an AL record with 13.2 strikeouts per game.  Nomar Garciaparra won the…
  • New Hitting Coach

    12 Oct 2014 | 9:02 pm
    With the season over, the final Sox offensive stats are in, and they are not good. 634 runs (11th in the AL). 123 homers (12th), a .316 OBP (8th). a .369 slugging percentage (14th). 1337 strikeouts (a club record). a .237 average with runners in scoring position (last in the league). The stats are more baffling when you examine the 2013 totals, including 97 victories and a World Championship. The team was picked in spring training for 90 wins and ended up with 71. A recent Peter Abraham piece in the Globe cites several factors. The team’s inability to replace free agents Jacoby…
  • Sox 99 – September Hot Streak

    8 Oct 2014 | 5:18 pm
    The Red Sox continued as one of the hottest teams in baseball as September unfolded. They first took 2 of 3 from Cleveland, owner of the best record in the majors. In a battle of hot-hitting clubs, the Tribe prevailed in the first constest 11-7 before over 43,000 at Jacobs Field. The home squad went up 8-1, but had to hang on as Boston continued to pound the ball. Starter Tim Wakefield surrendered 9 hits and 8 runs in 4 innings of work, with homers by Kenny Lofton and Richie Sexson. The Sox countered with 4 in the sixth on round-trippers by Trot Nixon and Mike Stanley. The clincher came in…

The European tour currently runs from January to November and takes in countries from all over the world including South Africa, India and Australia.

He then turned the gun on himself according to witnesses. The football game for the Wesco 3A North Division title in Washington suddenly wasn’t the biggest story line. With a school shooting and fatalities, the Marysville community was understandably shaken. Football Rival…

    This Saturday, RSL begins its 7th attempt at claiming the MLS Cup. With only two appearances, and one win in 2009, the veteran based team will begin its playoffs facing a familiar foe: LA Galaxy. In the past 5 games, including the Western Conference Finals last year, RSL seems to have the number of LA with 3 wins. LA only has 1 win during that stretch, a 1-0 win the last time the two teams met, in July. The two teems haven’t met since July and there has been plenty of differences since then. For starters, in July, RSL decided to give Luke Mulholland and Ned Grabavoy a rest and started…

    The NBA season is underway. As you sit back and prepare to watch the Utah Jazz battle the Dallas Mavericks, here are a few early observations from the home opener to peak your interest: Patience – Coach Quin Snyder has instituted a new way of doing things. It’s different than any of the players have previously experienced. The system is complex, requires precision, and near perfect execution to be successful. It will take time to get to that elite level. Remember, the average age of the team is 24 years young. This season will see growth as a team, including chemistry. That includes…

It’s also no secret that as a soccer lover, I hate playoffs for soccer. Nothing against soccer being played in a playoff system.

  • Utah Utes Football: Depth Matters

    Patrick Thomsen
    29 Oct 2014 | 10:04 am
    Back when the University of Utah first joined the Pac 12, depth seemed to be the biggest issue that was facing them. In a league like the Pac 12, where the 2’s and 3’s are just as talented as the 1’s, having depth is the main key to being successful. As injuries occur and guys get banged up throughout the season, having capable back-ups who are just as talented is of the utmost importance. The Utes finally have depth this season. Unlike seasons past, where a starter would go down and the Utes would have to scramble to find two or three guys to hopefully replace one, the…

    Snopp Dogg shouldn't have anything to complain about when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers offense in the second half of the season. Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had himself a historic day last Sunday against the Colts, completing a ridiculous 40 of 46 attempts for a cool 522 yards and six touchdowns without taking a sack or throwing a pick. Even by modern passing game standards, that stat-line is impressive. Hell, by Madden standards, that stat line is stupid.

  • LeBron James' return to Cleveland was his 4th-worst home game ever

    Tom Ziller
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:36 am
    That did not go well. At all. Wednesday night did not go well for LeBron James. With 17 points on 5-15 shooting, five rebounds, four assists and eight turnovers, it was LeBron's fourth-worst home game ever according to Game Score (which is a boiled-down PER). LeBron has played 507 career home games in Cleveland and Miami, and one of the most anticipated of the bunch -- his would-be triumphant return home as a Cavalier reborn -- went as bad as any of them. In case you're wondering about the three worse games: the 2007-08 opener against Dallas (10 points on 2-11 shooting with 5 turnovers), a…

    The 49ers have allowed McDonald to play all season while the legal system plays out, and it appears that may have been the right decision. San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald was arrested in late August on suspected domestic violence, but it appears the prosecution is leaning toward not charging him, according to Tracey Kaplan of the San Jose Mercury News. McDonald was the first NFL player to be arrested after the league implemented a new domestic violence policy, stating that a player would receive a mandatory six-game suspension for the first offense. McDonald was not suspended…

    Little faith for Lovie Smith's crew from SB Nation's experts. At this point in the season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are merely battling for respectability. They get the chance to double their current win total when they travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns. There was a time not long ago when many believed a playoff appearance was in the cards for Cleveland. The Browns began the year 3-2 and then faced the Jaguars, Raiders and Buccaneers in their next three games. A loss to Jacksonville and a less-than-impressive showing versus the Raiders have dampened the mood. Still, it can't be as…

  • North Carolina soccer player scores incredible goal

    Danielle Elliot
    31 Oct 2014 | 8:13 am
    The perfectly-timed bicycle-kick goal is a move you're more likely to see on a World Cup pitch than in a high school soccer game. And yet somehow, midway through the first half of a state playoff game in North Carolina, Heritage (Wake Forest, N.C.) High School junior Logan Shytle pulled it off from more than 15 yards out. He even managed to make it look easy.  As one of the defenders goes to collect the ball, you can see him tap the goalie's head as if to say, "There's nothing you can do about that one." If that's what he actually said, he was completely right. Shytle just timed it…

    At Mississippi State University, one of the most unique symbols of the school’s tradition is the cowbell. Cowbells are ubiquitous at Mississippi State football games, where the collective clanging of these instruments can become deafening—so much so that, in recent years, fans have been asked to “respect the bell” and “ring responsibly.” The school even has a whole website dedicated to proper cowbell etiquette. It appears, however, that not everyone has been minding their manners as of late. The cowbell cacophony reportedly has never been louder than it was…

    At CoachUp we’re strong believers in playing as many sports as possible when you’re younger (so long as you’re limiting yourself to one sport a season). However, one of the more difficult parts of playing multiple sports is transitioning from one season to the next. Depending on your age and competition level, you might end up missing some captains’ practices or even preseason practices. This can put you in catch up mode from the get-go and put you even further behind those who are concentrating on just one sport. Here are three tips to help make sure you start every season in the…

    College:(2) Florida State (7 - 0) 27 @ (25) Louisville (6 - 2) 24: It's popular to think that this is the game that will disrupt the Seminoles' run to the playoffs. I disagree, but it will probably be close. Until Jameis Winston leaves Florida State or is benched for one of his many indiscretions, I think he is good enough to lead his team to an undefeated season. If so, they will most likely be the only one without a loss, given the tough schedule that Mississippi State faces the rest of the way. Look for Florida State to find a way to keep their streak alive on the road against a team…

    The lone dominant team left seems to be the Broncos, led by the player who is arguably the face of the league in Peyton Manning. Otherwise, it appears things are settling into parity mode, with Green Bay, Indianapolis and Dallas all losing in inexplicable fashion to fall back into the pack. Is it just me, or do things seem a little too orchestrated and predictable, now that we know what's going on?Last Week:    10 - 5Overall:      80 - 42 - 1San Diego (5 - 2) 24 @ Denver (5 - 1) 31: Correct.

    I correctly predicted that one of the Mississippi teams would go down, and I even picked the right one on my way to a 15 - 1 picking week. The lone loss was a  last second victory by Utah over USC. Along the way, TCU put up more points then their basketball did in all but two games last season. That's just crazy.It sounds improbable, but there is a scenario where no SEC West team finds its way into the playoffs, since the contenders all play each other down the stretch.Last Week:    15 - 1.Overall:       147 - 60(1) Mississippi State (6 - 0) 27 @ Kentucky (5…

And can Oakland go on the road and get their first win? I guess we'll see!Last Week:    10 - 5Overall:      70 - 37 - 1San Diego (5 - 2) 24 @ Denver (5 - 1) 31: I just can't go against a touchdown passing machine that now has a defense to go…

    Both Mississippi teams go on the road today, and I think there's a good chance that one of them falls. I just don't know which one it will be, and despite that, I may not pick either one to lose. But then again, maybe I will. Let's see!(1) Mississippi State (6 - 0) 27 @ Kentucky (5 - 2) 17: This is all new territory for the Bulldogs, especially since a trip to Kentucky usually meant an easy win. But the Wildcats are 5 - 2 with  couple of SEC wins under their belt. They're coming off a 41 - 1 beating by LSU and should be motivated to make a better showing.(3) Ole Miss (7 - 0)…

    24 Oct 2014 | 3:55 pm
    About a week ago I ran the Murfreesboro Half (also known as the Middle Half) for the fifth year in a row. The best part about it is that I always go with a few of my friends. That always makes getting up at the crack of dawn a little easier. Registration for this race was over four months ago. It fills up in just hours so if you want to run it, you have to register the day it opens. What I didn’t know when I registered was that I would be in Philadelphia the whole week before, flying back home the night before the race. I am not going to lie, I was dreading it and even slightly considered…
  • Have Something for Yourself: A Reason to Run

    11 Oct 2014 | 8:15 am
    “It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority.” –Author Mandy Hale A few weeks ago I was shopping for some clothes for my kids and along the way I saw a blanket that caught my eye. It was gray and white chevron print (which matches everything in my house) and it was super soft. The best part about it was that it was only $17! Bargain, right? Let me back up and tell you that all of the other people that live in my home, including my husband and the dog, have their own special designated blanket. This is a blanket they use to sleep with…
  • The Nashville Women’s Half Marathon-A Great Race

    2 Oct 2014 | 4:55 am
    This past weekend I participated in the Women’s Half Marathon here in downtown Nashville. It was the second time I have done the race.  It was my first half marathon in over three months and I was honestly pretty nervous.  This is a fairly hilly race and I knew it would get a little sunny.  Since the Boston Marathon last April I have really struggled with a long term goal for my running.  For five years it was all about qualifying and then re-qualifying. And then re-qualifying again!  So I have kept up with my miles since April, I just really haven’t pushed myself as hard with speed…

  • The Power of Spectators at a Race: Why You Should Show Up

    19 Sep 2014 | 11:21 am
    With several races coming up, I thought I would share my thoughts on the benefits of having people there to support you at a race.  One of the things that makes big races fun is the vast amount of spectators.  The masses of people bring huge amounts of energy to a course. I definitely loved the spectators this year at Boston, they were excited and they were loud.  However, if I had to pick a marathon I have done that I would say had my favorite crowd, I would pick Chicago without a doubt.  There was literally not a moment on the course when there weren’t rows and rows of people. …

    The news broke on October 23 that, due to nerve root issues in his back, Lakers’ star point guard, Steve Nash, has officially been ruled out of the entire 2014-15 season. Unfortunately, the veteran also allegedly damaged the root nerves in his back while moving some bags. Despite all of this, Nash has yet to announce his retirement. Barring a minor miracle or victory over Father Time; the injuries will bring an end to Nash’s improbable and illustrious 18-year NBA career, one which includes him being named the league MVP twice.

    Arlington, Texas -The 2-5 Washington Redskins appear in their third prime-time matchup this season as they travel to Arlington, Texas to take on the 6-1 NFC East Division Dallas Cowboys. The defensive unit of the burgundy and gold has a huge task in front of them in stopping their arch rival. Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo is playing some of the best football of his career right now, thanks, in part to the arrival of Scott Linenhan. The new playcaller is getting the ball out of Romo’s hands and into those of his playmakers, wide out Dez Bryant, running back DeMarco Murray and…

    It’s Dallas Week in Washington, D.C. and, as always with the U.S. capital’s home team; the goings-on in Ashburn are keeping everybody on their toes. The 6-1 Cowboys and 2-5 Redskins play on Monday Night Football this week and the big storyline is what quarterback will be in the offensive huddle.

    The Washington Redskins’ 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans yesterday was desperately needed but difficult to watch at times. On any given play, fans saw brilliant design and execution or baffling mistakes and lack of discipline. It was like seeing a live version of the book Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For anyone who doesn’t remember, Dr. Jekyll is the main character’s good friend. Mr. Hyde is his evil alter ego. For example: Hyde play: The game began with an Alfred Morris run and, even though the play went to the left behind Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams, right tackle…

  • Ohio State Moves Up In Polls After Rutgers Rout

    20 Oct 2014 | 5:56 am
    The Ohio State Buckeyes moved higher to number 12 in the coaches poll after routing Rutgers Saturday in the Ohio Stadium. The poll released Sunday is disappointing to Buckeye fans who are looking to move into one of the top spots before the season comes to an end. Rutgers wasn’t much of a challenge for OSU who finished the game with an impressive 56 points only allowing the Scarlet Knights to score 17. The BCS no longer includes the Coaches poll in calculating who plays for the National Title at the end of the year so it is irrelevant for the most part.

    If you ask me, and others, Maryland sports have a very obvious pecking order with hoops at the very top, football next, after which the rest of the entertaining things like lacrosse and soccer.  Unlike most universities, Maryland football doesn't possess a clear-cut, standard rivalry game that places some strange item from the very early 1900s at risk annually.  Among their most significant "rivals" must be Virginia, however the meeting has just been once-a-year since 1957, and with Maryland becoming a member of the Big Ten, there's no guarantee that they'll carry on and participate in the…

Hierbei unterscheidet sich nicht nur die Musterung, auch der Teig ist anders. Brüsseler Waffel müssen lockerer sein und werden daher meistens aus einem Hefeteig hergestellt.

    By Better Nutrition Greens aren’t just good for your health—they’re great. Green drinks, particularly, contain a healthy mix of nutrient-filled algae and grasses that offer detoxifying and alkalizing amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants. Greens are among my very favorite foods. Steamed, sautéed, raw—it doesn’t matter. Load up my plate and I’m happy. In fact, I’d eat them even if they weren’t so healthy!

    To most of us, the net on a tennis court divides the physical space between the opponents; the place where they move and play, a boundary to define whether a ball is in or out. For Tommy Paul, one of the nation’s top teen tennis players, the net demarcates the psychic space of strategy, mental toughness, and a place where his dreams are fulfilled. “He has always liked to compete, and he hates to lose,” explained Tommy’s mother, Jill MacMillan. She continued that “Tommy is pretty good at dissecting his opponents and constructing points.” These words are from…

    Jim Spier has been a fan of track and field since he was a high school student in the late 1950s. When he attended track and field events as an adult he got interested in the Junior events (under 20) and noticed that the Junior teams did not represent the makeup of the top high school track and field athletes in the nation. Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process. What Jim and Mike learned is that many young high school athletes could not advance to higher level sanctioned events. On their own, they launched an effort in the mid…
  • Strength Training: Well Balanced Training Is Key To Success

    High School Illustrated
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

    24 Oct 2014 | 11:27 am
    Last week the St. Louis Rams converted a fake punt and a fake punt return, which helped them get a win over the Seattle Seahawks. In sports, I enjoy watching trick plays and teams mislead their opponents into thinking they are doing one thing…then throw them off by doing something completely different. All too often in life, however, we mislead with our motives and intentions when we say one thing and mean something else. By acting fake and tricking others, we are heading down a path of destruction. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 12:22 says, “Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord,…

    The 2014 MLB draft saw one of the memorable draft incidents occur in recent memory. The Houston Astros went into the draft coming of a 70-92 season, a 19-win improvement on the year before, with the No. 1 pick With their No. 1 pick the Texan outfit opted for 17-year-old Brady Aiken out of San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic High. In theory, signing the high school left-arm pitcher made sense. The Astros hierarchy likened the 17-year-old to legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, believing that he was the perfect man to centre the rebuilding of Houston on.

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • A JMMA football update: The journey is over for the Detroit Lions’ George Johnson, in a good way

    31 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Flashback Friday: When George was just a pup. Every week, George Johnson provides anybody who’s paying attention just how far he’s come. Sometimes it’s loud and in your face, other times it’s subtle. But every week for the past eight, Johnson has made at least one solo tackle. He’s consistently contributing in the NFL, which is something no other JMMA winner can claim. George Johnson has gone from Camp Body No. 68 to rotational defensive end. He’s gone from more transactions (12) than career tackles (7) to four sacks in eight games, the second highest on…
  • Golden Tate is part golden boy, part mean guy; You should love him because of it

    29 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    One time, an editor sent me out to a charity basketball game to interview Von Miller. I got there and didn’t spot him. After scouring the benches, there were a couple that kind of looked like him but I wasn’t sure. Then a 6-foot-3 dude walked through the door with his pectorals bulging out of his shirt and long arms that were thicker than my head. It’s like that with almost NFL player. You can identify them as soon as they walk through the door. They’re taller and wider than everyone around them, yet have complete control of their bodies. It’s amazing. At times I…
  • A long drive and a Detroit Lions team that burps rainbows

    27 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    As teams from Michigan and Georgia played a game in London, I listened to it in a radio station in Texas. Sunday morning I drove three hours from Houston to Dallas. I didn’t see Golden Tate use his invisibility cloak or Theo Riddick’s one-handed catch or Matt Prater’s kick cut immediately left, only to wobble back down the middle until hours later. No, it was just me, cruise control and two national radio announcers whose names I don’t remember — and I didn’t discover them until the end of the first quarter. The Lions were already down 14-0. Midway through…

I figured I might as well share it with you. • The Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch says he’s hearing talk that Flyers defenseman Nick Grossman and Luke Schenn are available. A couple other notes from Garrioch: the package for Tyler Myers will have to be “massive”, the Panthers are looking for a top prospect in return for Brian Campbell and Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman has a no movement clause, and the…
  • Enjoy the Red Wings’ comeback, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves

  • LI Connection to New Baseball Documentary
    8 Oct 2014 | 9:00 am
    Another intricate sports story and another connection to Long Island. Did you know the founder of Big League Chew grew up on Long Island? Rob Nelson, a pitcher at Nassau County Community College and at Cornell University, partnered with former teammate and baseball notable Jim Bouton to launch the product in the 1970s. Nelson played with Bouton on the Portland Mavericks in 1977, an independent team founded by Bing Russell, the late actor and father of Kurt Russell, and grandfather of former big leaguer Matt Franco. Nelson’s name came across the sports radar again this year after the younger…

    Imagine Plum Island as something other than the Animal Disease Center that it is today and people would think you’re crazy. But long before it was used by the Department of Homeland Security to study foreign animal diseases it was occupied by soldiers at Fort Terry. Those soldiers had to keep occupied on the island just off the coast of the North Fork, so they took to open land and played sports. Photos of the athletic history on Plum Island are currently being featured in the administrative complex on the island in an exhibit supplied by the Southold Historical Society. Tours and access to…

    31 Oct 2014 | 5:02 am
    The Washington Redskins have learned that CB DeAngelo Hall, who tore his Achilles last month and had it surgically repaired, has tore the Achilles again.  He will undergo a second surgery to repair the re-tear.   According to several experts, it is a six month process to recover from an Achilles tear, but for Hall, with a re-tear, it may be close to nine months. Since Hall’s departure due to injury,t he Redskins secondary has actually adjusted quite well with two draft picks.  Davis Amersen, who was selected in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, was already banned a starter at…
  • Nats part ways with LaRoche and Soriano

    Mark Buterbaugh
    30 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    The Washington Nationals have declined to exercise 2015 contract options on 1B Adam LaRoche and closer Rafael Soriano.  Neither of these moves were considered to be surprising. For LaRoche, the decision was about money and lineup.  With a choice of paying LaRoche the $15 million option or paying $2 million for a buyout the Nats chose the buyout.  There likely was never any serious consideration of exercising the option.   Additionally, the Nationals will likely be keeping 3B Anthony Rendon at third base.  That means 3B Ryan Zimmerman will have to move to first base, since the outfield is…

    Center field will be patrolled by a familiar face in 2015 for the Washington Nationals.  According to Washington Post reporter Adam Kilgore, Denard Span will return after the Nationals exercised a 2015 contract option for $9 million. The move is not all that surprising.  Span had a terrific 2014 season batting .302 over 147 games with a solid .355 on base percentage.  At the plate, Span added 39 doubles, 8 triples, and 5 home runs while scoring 94 runs.  He also added 31 stolen bases on the season.   Defensively, Span was recently named as a Gold Glove finalist for center field.

    28 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    Just over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the sacking of Andre Villas Boas, where I questioned whether the bullet should have stopped at Andre, or whether the problem lay further. Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

I remember my father possessing a Kimber which has always been very dear to his heart. My cousin, son of an ex-army man, was particularly interested in buying something that was very familiar with the war veterans. We had initially zeroed in on the plain-Jane version of Old Slabsides from Springfield 1911 pistols. But while doing our online research on the subject, we found Kimber proclaiming: On the…

    This is a big question: which optics should you choose for your long range weapons? The first thing that you do on picking up a rifle scope is to look through the reticle and put it on target. While we are discussing about the long range shooting, it is important to note that these involve shooting targets at unknown distances and even while on the move. This kind of shooting is found in both military and sports. Whatever the field of application, the most important requirement for this type of shooting is the rifle scope.

  • Kimber .22LR Bolt Action Rifle – A Review

    19 Oct 2014 | 12:46 am
    The most essential quality in the hunting rifle is that it should be reliable and suitable for the owner. Thus, a prospective buyer should make a list of possible models and then visit his or her local gun shop and try each. Keep the rifle on your shoulder, operate the action, switch the safety on and off, dry fire the rifle. Then buy the one that fits best. Stock fit and ergonomics are important, so if a recommended rifle does not fit you, do not buy it. Even the best rifles in the market, like, the Kimber hunting rifles, should be tested prior to purchase. Although a number of hunting…

(Mandatory Credit: Ronald Martinez/Getty Images) Since we are living in the year 2014, the first thing that we want to discuss when talking about the NFL is offense and why not? We are in the golden age of quarterbacks with players seemingly breaking records on a weekly basis. But what last year should have taught us is that defense can still win you championships, even in this day and age. This was no…

    Bryce Brentz #73 of the Boston Red Sox reacts after striking out with the bases loaded against the New York Yankees during the last game of the season at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. (Mandatory Credit: Al Bello/Getty Images) The Boston Red Sox made a terrible mistake by overreacting in 2012 and replacing manager Terry Francona with Bobby Valentine. That desire to shake up the status quo resulted in the hiring of Bobby Valentine as manager. The Red Sox finished 69-93 and the collapse resulted in a complete shake-up of the roster as they erased many mistakes by trading away recent…

(Mandatory Credit: Chris Graythe/Getty Images) The New Orleans Saints showed little mercy on the Green Bay Packers when they crushed them 44-23 on their home turf Sunday night. Drew Brees seemed like his vintage self, throwing for 311 yards and three touchdowns. It was also only the second time this season Brees did not throw an interception, the other being a 20-9 victory over the Vikings in week 3.

(Mandatory Credit: ESPN/Getty Images) The New York Knicks’ climb back to NBA relevance won’t be nearly as eye-opening or sudden as their plunge into mediocrity a season ago. The road back to the top takes time; it’s a process filled with growing pains and wrinkles to iron out. The Knicks have a long way to go in order to even be considered contenders—but that doesn’t mean the wheels…

(Mandatory Credit: Andy Lyons/Getty Images) The Indianapolis Colts didn’t even let the Bengals make it a game on Sunday, when they obliterated them 27-0 on Indy’s home turf. Andrew Luck continued to play like a top-tier quarterback by throwing for 344 yards and two touchdowns, while the Colt’s rushing game was also solid, picking up 171 yards with a touchdown on the ground.

Perennial Skeptical Football muse Peyton Manning kicked things off last Thursday night with 286 yards, 71 percent passing and three touchdowns in the Denver Broncos’ win against a strong San Diego Chargers team.

The rankings behind these probabilities can be found here, at the co-author’s blog. Week 8 of the NFL season was rough for the Carolina Panthers.

    The Dirtiest Picks on the Internet

  • Thursday Madness

    Bobby Sugar
    30 Oct 2014 | 1:27 pm
    Last night was pretty rough, but that was expected. Tonight, I decided to switch it up a little bit and take the picks that make no sense and probably won't hit, but I still get a lot of points which makes me feel great.NYK +13.5 vs. CLEVELANDNothing makes sense about this line!! This is the worst bet on the board at first glance, which obviously makes it the safest pick. If you watched the Knicks play last night, you can make a strong case that this line should be at least be 20 points. The only hope here is that Melo gets hot and is able to put up 35-40, while the Cavs can't hit from deep.

    Last night: 5-1Detroit (+105) @ WashingtonThese teams have nearly identical records over their last 5 games. I'm rolling with Detroit on the road. They're more talented overall and have the best coach in the world. If you disagree with Babcock being the best, well, you just don't know that much about hockey. The Wings are an offensively dominant squad; the top 6 for Detroit are amongst the best in the league. Washington is solid because they have Ovi. If you take Ovechkin away they are a lower tier team. One guy is rarely enough to beat the Wings.Nashville (-125) @ Edmonton OVER 5.5…

    You know what they say. Defense wins championships. That’s been the mantra for teams who fight their way into the playoffs without a premier playmaker on offense. You’ll hear allusions to the 2000 Ravens, when Ray Lewis and one of the greatest defenses of all time won a Super Bowl despite Trent Dilfer only completing 12 passes. Or Super Bowl XXXVII, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scored more points on defense than the NFL MVP, Rich Gannon. The 2013 Seattle Seahawks wrote the latest chapter in that book last February when they won Super Bowl XLVIII. The Denver Broncos entered that game as…

    We are now three weeks into the NHL season now. While it is too early to determine who will win the Stanley Cup, we might as well take some time to take a look at how some teams are shaping up. The Good Nashville Predators After dropping 3-0 to the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Predators became the final unbeaten team in regulation to suffer a loss. They now stand at a very impressive 5-1-2. I for one, did not expect this outcome. The Predators did make some major moves this offseason in acquiring James Neal and signing Derek Roy, Mike Ribeiro, and Olli Jokinen.

No team can continue at that pace and be successful.Then there was the running back situation with both Fred and C.J. out and how they were going to use Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon. All who read my articles know my feelings on wanting Bryce Brown to be the man now, but what would the Bills do with him after totally ignoring this proven talent the entire season up to this point.Then there was Kyle…

    Hell in a cell with no WWE match. This will be the first time ever that a WWE special event will have no world title match.The WWE authority is breaking the trend this time.

  • CurrexSole RunFree Review

    Endurance Sport
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:26 am
    Overview We at Endurance Sport were fortunate enough to test the Currex line of running inserts this summer. The brand is known for its innovative products designed to aid the body’s natural biomechanics rather than forcing a particular movement pattern on athletes.  I was intrigued by the company’s offerings when the call came down the line, as I have been largely unimpressed with the inserts I have worn in the past.  I explained to our contact that I typically ran in fairly minimal shoes and didn’t have any particularly profound gait abnormalities. I supinate a bit on the left side,…

    Asbel Kiprop stunned by Silas Kiplagat in the deepest 1500m race, ever. 3 National Records, 7 under 3:30.  It was no secret that Asbel Kiprop’s world record attempt would take place this year in Monaco. With a 3:27 race in Monaco 1-year ago, and a sub 1:44 800m run just 2 weeks ago, the world watched in hopes of seeing the first 3:25 1500m. The field, together the greatest group of 1500m athletes ever assembled, had no problem latching on to Kiprop as he chased the untouchable 3:25.99 mark. In race that featured an opening lap of 54 seconds and 800 meters in 1:50 it was clear that we…
  • Topo (RR) Run Racer Review

    Endurance Sport
    4 Jul 2014 | 7:50 am
    Performance Neutral | 5.3 oz | 0 mm Heel-Toe | $130 Modeled after the Japanese Tabi sandal with a split-toe design, the Topo RR features a low-profile, zero-drop platform and responsive energy return. When training in the RR, you will notice the separated big toe a bit, but the sensation is not detrimental to performance. The ride is balanced, and allows the foot to make full contact with the ground at both slower and faster speeds. While not necessarily a “minimalist” shoe by purist definition, the RR allows for plenty of ground feel on both the road and packed dirt surfaces. Because of…

    Like many runners, from the hobby jogger to the elite, I spend numerous hours a week on tending to various knots and soreness in my legs. I owned various therapy devices, lacrosse balls, softballs, foam rollers, you name it I had it. The foam roller that I previously owned was too soft and at the time I was not looking to spend $70- $80 dollars on one of those fancy shmancy new foam rollers. So I got online and started reading about various other types of massage therapy and decided to purchase the Tiger Tail. Tender “knots” in the muscle can prevent full range of motion, while causing…

With such an impressive opener, there was only one athlete who could challenge Gay, and that was Justin Gatlin (convicted doper), who crossed the line in a near world-leading time of 9.79 This was an impressive return for Gay that begs the question, “Was 1-year a long enough suspension?” Gay returned to competition an entire year early because of his…

    What follows below was 95% written over the day leading up to game 7. I was so confident the Royals would cruise to a victory that I spent many hours yesterday crafting my cup runneth over with excitement into words. I was already arranging work meetings around the parade on Friday. All postseason long, I have been privately laughing at the unknowledgeable fair weather fan.

However, the sun came up (even though it was raining when I drove to work), there was still traffic on the streets, and schools are still in session. Baseball is officially over America, and our Royals got to play in the last game of the year.  It is funny because the first thing me and Luke talked about this morning was next year.  The season isn't even 12 hours old yet, and we are already excited for the following year.  This is a…

    The games leading up to this have been a blast, but the Royals couldn’t quite finish it off. All of their talent, hard work, and dedication just to come up short. This is heartbreaking, and I’m sure I speak for everyone. At least this game was entertaining, but not even the most entertaining game in the world could make the pain that Royals fans everywhere are feeling. Jeremy Guthtie cruised right through the first inning, but ran into trouble in the second inning. With the bases loaded, a pair of sac flies by Michael Morse and Brandon Crawford brought in Pablo Sandoval and Hunter…

    No meaningful Royals game has ever been played on October 29. When I woke up on 4 hours of sleep at 6:10 this morning, I threw on my robe and took my dog to the back yard. It was as dark as midnight still. Looking up, I saw Orion, the most brilliant winter constellation, in all its glory in the west-southwest sky. Betelgeuse, Rigel and their brethren twinkled down through the clear black sky. I exhaled and saw my breath in the forty-two degree air. I looked at my car and saw a heavy dew that resembled frost.

    The pressure was definitely on the Royals to win tonight. It’s simple: More pressure means a better performance, less pressure means a worse performance. This game had all the pressure on the Royals, and absolutely no pressure on the Giants, and it showed. As baseball mourned the loss of Cardinals young outfielder, Oscar Taveras, one man in particular took it hard: Yordano Ventura. Before the game, Ventura put a tribute on his hat for the young life that was lost on Sunday night. If the goal was to give Oscar a pitching performance to be proud of, he met that goal, and laughed as he…

    Matt Williams is showing himself to be an amateurish rookie manager. After inexplicably removing pitcher Jordan Zimmermann during Game 2 on the NLDS, a decision that’s justifiably being seen as an embarrassing lapse in judgment, the foolish manager took heat. Forget the heat though. Now he’s squarely in the furnace. With the Washington Nationals season ending in upsetting fashion, players were giving the media their final post game interviews of the season. That is, every player expect for Zimmermann.

Peyton Manning, once thought to be out of football after neck surgery, is better and stronger than ever, nearly setting the league record for passing yardage against Arizona and closing in on Brett Favre’s touchdown record. Matt Ryan, never considered the strongest of quarterbacks, has had record-setting days against the Saints and the Buccaneers. The Dallas Cowboys, ordinarily the league standard for mediocrity, lead the NFC East due to the normally-fragile DeMarco Murray’s unexpectedly strong play and the…

    It’s always a long off-season for the A-League. And what makes it even worse is that we have to wait nearly 2 months after the Europeans kick off and wait patiently for the more traditional “Aussie” sports to wrap up their playoff series before Round 1 can commence. The Victory had recruited unbelievably well in the off-season, but it would remain to be seen what Kevin Muscat (the world’s dirtiest player) would do with his gameplan. Melbourne have played the past 2 years without a central striker, preferring 2 wingers instead (yes, still doesn’t make sense does it??) and have…

    There are 23 men short-listed for FIFA’s 2014 Ballon d’Or (Footballer of The Year). None of them are English. Does this mean that English footballers are just not good enough? Does that also explain the reason why the English team failed to get pass the group stages in 2014 World Cup final? Before you say anything, note that Spain also suffered the same fate in Brazil and yet three of their players are in the short list. Baffled?

    Di kalangan rakyat Asia, teknik spin ini agak popular. Selain dari kosnya yang lebih murah dari segi peralatan dan mudah dikuasai, bermain bowling teknik spin sesuai ini digunakan di pusat-pusat bowling di Asia yang kebanyakkanya tidak menjaga lane dengan sempurna. Oleh itu, menggunakan teknik hook menjadi susah, lantaran lane yang tidak terjaga menyebabkan hook yang dibuat kurang menjadi (tiada grip pada lane) atau sering tersasar. Teknik spin agak mudah dikawal kerana pergerakkan bola yang agak lurus. Bola melalui beberapa “board“/papan sahaja sebelum sampai ke poket tengah dan…

    More winners again last week, after the international football break we get going again with some interesting fixtures and some equally interesting football betting tips from Game of Odds blogger and resident tipster, Cookie.Manchester City v Tottenham This matchup has recently brought us a lot of goals, 30 goals in the last 6, and should make for an interesting early kick off for the Premier League. The goals have been a little one-sided also with City scoring 22 of these 30. Throw into the mix that Spurs have injury questions over keeper Lloris and top scorer Chadli and you wonder if this…

  • Championship Week 6 Preview & Betting Tips

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:36 am
    Cookie took profit on both last weekend and this week’s midweek fixtures in the Championship, and he’s convinced about a few games with big plays this weekend. Cookie has a bigger stake available this weekend due to midweek winners - so is staking approx £12,000 this weekendWatford v Bournemouth I’ve been quite sweet about the chances of Bournemouth in their last two games, and they have let me down on both occasions, and this is very much a case of twice bitten thrice shy for me. Watford are without Troy Deeney and Fernando Foresieri, so are missing options up front (those two…

And this weekend’s early live match in the premier league brings us a stinker in QPR vs Stoke.

    With teams spread out all across the country playing pretty markedly different levels of competition, it’s hard to say who the player of the year is in any level of NCAA soccer. Almost nobody gets to actually see more than a few of the candidates in action live, and so statistics and buzz from opposing coaches have to go a long way in trying to speculate on possibilities for the player of the year.Stats don’t tell the whole story for obvious reasons. One consideration is where on the pitch a player plays – defensive field players and many midfielders would be overlooked if…

Die Thunder müssen zudem ohne Kevin Durant (Fußbruch) auskommen. Der amtierende MVP wird…

Damit liegt das Edelmetall unmittelbar in…

  • Top Players Missing in the Ballon D'or Nominations 1

    31 Oct 2014 | 5:58 am
    1. Luis SuarezLuis Suarez [Photo Credit: Sideline Sports]Suarez was awarded the Golden Boot for being the Top scorer in Europe along with CR7 as he scored as much as 33 goals last season for the Reds . But guess what, he doesn't even find a spot in the Ballon d'Or nominations list. Why is that? Some may argue the whole biting scandal, following his ban, has shown him in bad light and his controversial actions on the field has eclipsed his brilliant performance last season and that is why he doesn't find a spot. Well that is what many experts feel.

He guarded the Atletico defences like a warrior all through last season and made it tough even for the likes of Messi and Ronaldo to pass through him last season.He also chipped in with crucial headers that too in the most important of matches one being the League Title decider match up against Barca(which they won due to this header) and the other being the Champions League Final against Real(which they lost by a…

      “Somebody once said that DNA moves in mysterious ways.”   Dear Stockton, I know that as of late our recollections have been hazy, and perhaps it is from too many years of abusing our bodies and minds, or maybe it’s just the government. All that I can say for sure about these past few years is that something has gone very wrong. There are strange rumblings in the desert and there is nothing good coming out of the news. A close friend of mine described it as a Darkness and I would tend to agree. There is a Dark Stain growing in the white house with veins and tendrils that…

  • Vikings’ Offensive Line Holding Back Bridgewater, McKinnon

    19 Oct 2014 | 3:24 pm
    The Vikings’ defense played admirably despite a last-second, game-winning touchdown pass from Kyle Orton, Sunday. They forced four turnovers, and the Vikings offense could only muster 16 points in the loss. Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN and the Star Tribune has been pretty clear that rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is to blame for the anemic offense. He even wrote that Bridgewater’s performance against Detroit, the NFL’s top-ranked defense, was identical to Christian Ponder’s performance against Green Bay, the NFL’s 19th-ranked defense. Last time it was…

Doox, as described on The Farm’s website, is a “musky, skunky, earthy, pungent” hybrid of Chemdawg and Purple Cowthat provides an “instant intense high, uplifting mentally with a strong body buzz.” I feel that to be a pretty accurate description. There is no photo on the website, unfortunately, but there is one here. Since we only had a few grams of weed and wanted enough to smoke…

    Polesetter Marc Márquez broke umpteenth record with his 12th win in one season, leaving the legend Mick Doohan behind. Márquez suffered a bad start and fell back to eighth place, whereas Valentino Rossi and Andrea Dovizioso both started well. Finally it was Dani Pedrosa, who stayed in front, with Jorge Lorenzo closely behind him. They were followed by Dovizioso and Rossi, but it didn’t take long until this order broke. Of course, Marc Márquez aggressively made his way forward and fastly closed up to the leading group. His teammate, however, fell out of race, because he braked too…

    27 Oct 2014 | 2:13 am
    Once the MotoGP world title was brought to Spain two weeks ago by Marc Márquez in Motegi, the next spaniard follows his example. Esteve “Tito“ Rabat is now crowned the new Moto2 world champion. After dominating the season and fighting for the title with his teammate Mika Kallio, he was able to achieve his goal two weeks earlier. Rabat is known as one of the most hard working riders in the paddock and usually gets better with every lap. In today’s race, the Marc VDS rider focused more on becoming world champion, rather than arriving at the top. After leading the race from the…

Both teams are understood to be in extreme financial difficulty. It emerged earlier this week that in the wake of Caterham going into administration, Ecclestone has given special dispensation for the team to miss both the USA and Brazilian rounds of this season with a possible return cited for the final round in Abu Dhabi. Caterham staff have been advised not to return to work until a deal to sell the Leafield-based team has…

    Movistar Yamaha MotoGP’s Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi got their first laps in around the Sepang International Circuit under very mixed conditions today as they prepare for this weekend’s Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix. Lorenzo successfully kicked off the third and last overseas Grand Prix weekend during the sunny morning session. The Majorcan rider spent his first stint finding a good dry set up before posting a best lap of 2’01.416 in his second stint, just 0.037 seconds off the fastest pace.

  • Winter training: how turbo trainers can help

    30 Oct 2014 | 9:04 am
    The dim mornings and dark nights of autumn and winter can make it hard to find time to ride. But a turbo trainer can help solve this. Instead of braving the dark or heading out on icy roads, you can train indoors. Cycling on a turbo also helps make the most of limited time, so you can squeeze in a worthwhile session around work and family commitments. Turbo training: the basics A turbo trainer turns a regular bicycle into an indoor trainer. Most turbos secure the rear wheel against a roller, although some modern designs need the rear wheel to be removed. However dark, foggy, wet or cold it…

If they can make good running shoes and apparel then surely their exercise machines must be worth a go? Many gym goers will have used Reebok commercial models and bought their home models only to be disappointed – But here’s the reasoning – they were made under license by a different company, meaning there have been a number of problems in the past with poor components and quality of the build.

    DUNK360 | Basketball, Football, Baseball, all sports lifestyle and fashion website Florida State had the tough task of going on the road against a solid, ranked, Louisville team on national TV. It seemed like the Seminoles needed to have a great game from their star Jameis Winston in order to get the win. However, Winston didn’t have his best game and he threw for a career high 3 INTs. Thanks to Jameis and his mistakes, the Cardinals of Louisville built up a 21-0 lead. The 2nd half was the complete opposite for the Seminoles, who were down 21-7. They put up a huge second half with 35…

Thankfully for this Los Angeles Clippers fan, Russell Westbrook was nowhere close to him to react to the taunts.

To virtually no one’s surprise, current holder of the trophy Cristiano Ronaldo is the overwhelming odds-on favorite to retain the trophy, as per Oddschecker.   While CR7 was hampered by injury during the 2014 World Cup, the Portuguese forward’s club campaign was nothing short of scintillating.

  • Bumgarner becomes legend, Giants become dynasty

    Jake B
    30 Oct 2014 | 2:09 pm
    One man is the reason the San Francisco Giants won their third World Series title in the last five seasons. That man would be Madison Bumgarner, who became a baseball legend after his Game 7 performance. Bumgarner put together the greatest display of pitching ever seen in the history of the World Series. He went 2-0, along with a Game 7 save (which really should have been a win) and finished with a microscopic 0.43 ERA. That brings his career World Series numbers to 4-0 with a 0.25 ERA in five games. Are you kidding me? Bumgarner came in last night with the Giants up 3-2 and secured the win…

To make matters worse, rookie Julius Randle broke his leg and will miss a good part of the season. There already wasn’t much to look forward to this season with the Lakers, but losing their rookie first round pick just makes it even uglier. The only thing to watch in the purple and gold this season will probably be Kobe Bryant in what could be his final season in Hollywood. How long will Bryant put up with this disaster?

    The New York Jets are 1-7. They have no quarterback. Their second-year starting QB has been benched for a putrid performance yet again on Sunday. The head coach will be on his way out when the season is over, if he even makes it that long. The secondary is the worst in the NFL. Yet GM John Idzik is proud of the “effort” and “hard work” in the seven Jets moral victories. Monday’s press conference had all the meanings of a Jets pity party. The GM didn’t announce a QB, he clamored that he’s had success before when he’s never been a GM, and he…
