  • Onside Free Kick Fails, Still Looks Cool

    21 Dec 2014 | 1:39 pm
    The Vikings lost today when the Dolphins blocked a late punt to earn a game-winning safety, but with a few seconds left Minnesota still had a chance to get back on offense if they could properly execute the rare onside free kick. It didn't work, but still looks cool. We do wonder why they didn't just try punting the ball way up high so it traveled 15 yards or so, and then try to catch a rebound rather than this ultra-rare "sort of a placekick" approach never mind, the receiving team can still call for a fair catch. (Reminder: safety kicks cannot use a tee.)Read more...

    18 Dec 2014 | 7:59 am
    A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that there had been stories in Chicago that the Bears had contemplated benching Jay Cutler back in Week 12. I said then that the idea of turning the season over to Jimmy Clausen with 5 or 6 games still to play would not have been a positive step for the team. Well, the Bears are now out of the playoffs by a significant margin and there are only 2 games left on the schedule… Last night, Adam Schefter reported on ESPN that the Bears would indeed put Jay Cutler on the bench this weekend and start Jimmy Clausen against the Lions. I am not going to try to…

    Just as it makes no sense to put out pre-season rankings for college football and basketball teams in advance of any live action, it always seems to me to be premature to think about which coaches in the NFL might not be back with their teams the next year until about now. For about half the teams in the NFL, the die is cast; those are the ones that will definitely not be in the playoffs. There are still a few teams clinging to playoff hopes by their collective fingernails. The playoff coaches are most likely to be returning. Therefore, I want to take a quick tour around the league and ponder…

For those of you who did not major in geography, Belek is a city on the south coast of Turkey about 500 miles southeast of Istanbul. The tournament was a 54-hole event and Daly’s first prize purse came to $8,000. In 2004, the prize money for the Buick Open was $4.5M. Using the…

    Playoff re-seeding in the NFL has always been a hot topic every time someone brings it up. Whether it’s something to do with a double digit playoff team missing the playoffs, or a division champion with a worse record than a wild card team hosting a playoff game, this is a topic that forever will be water cooler talk. Until now. I wrote recently about how great parity is in the NFL and how it makes it better than any other sport. Teams can go from worst to first in just one season. Except parity was never meant to include a horrible, and just plain sad division. I’m looking at you…

    With the rumors of San Francisco 49ers head coach, Jim Harbaugh leaving at the end of this season lets take a look at their Harbaugh could possibly land. Oakland Raiders: First team I believe where Harbaugh will go to is the Raiders. Harbaugh loves the bay area, he has mentioned it in dozens of interviews and press conferences. Lets not forget four years ago Harbaugh left Stanford University to come to San Francisco, which is less than a 40-minute drive. San Francisco to Oakland is only an 8-mile drive. Is his love for the bay area enough? How about having the first-round draft pick? With…

This season has been all over the place (you may have seen me write that before) as it is, so the win wasn’t exactly a shock. Shocking is when the Jaguars top the Giants and the Saints grab a win…on the road! Since the Cardinals did in fact lose, the Top Five saw a lot of movement this week. The playoff picture is starting to unfold more and more. I will be talking about all the teams in the race in this week’s rankings. Well, most of them anyways. I dove into the…

As Beckham tried to get up, Ogletree pushed him in the face, and Beckham meekly kicked him.

Which is why me breaking into your home and barricading myself in your palatial (I assume it's palatial, you seem like the "palatial" kind of guy) bedroom is totally fine with you. I'm pretty great, Jim, and I think you are, too. Which is why right after I climbed through this second-floor window I've forced open using a crowbar, I was sure to wipe off the windowsill. I sprayed down the window, too. With Windex. No streaks for my good friend Jim Harbaugh. I've already made sure…

That's how this has anything to do with college football, and the meetings we're sitting through today in lieu of dicking around on the internet all day.

    A FUN GAME THAT IS TOTALLY NOT FOR CHILDREN Remember that meeting Bo Pelini had with his players off-campus after he got fired? Turns out it involved some slightly adult language! So we're giving you the chance to identify which of these quotes from Pelini or from Joe Pesci in one of his many fine movie roles. (Answers at the bottom of course.) 1. "I'd rather fucking work at McDonald's than work with some of those guys. Not that there is anything bad about working at McDonald's." 2.

  • Here’s The Bizarre Story Of A Serial Lingerie Thief Who Was Finally Caught

    21 Dec 2014 | 3:30 pm
    Shutterstock Over the course of a year, a Chinese man in the province of Guangxi stole over 2,000 pairs of used panties and bras from his neighbors. The man reportedly stashed the undergarments in the ceiling of his apartment building. His theft likely would have gone unnoticed—but then the ceiling collapsed. Oops. His perverse deed was uncovered only when one of the stairwells’ ceilings gave way under the weight of his loot, and several bras and underpants came tumbling down. Investigators lined the lingerie neatly outside the building to count just how many articles the man had…

    Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live not only featured an appearance by Dr. Evil, it also had a kinda (but not really) funny sketch about a family known as “The Tenderfields”. The reason for any semblance of comedy was the subject in which it was parodying: The Holderness Family. You may know them better for their viral holiday videos like last year’s “X-mas Jammies” and the more recent “All About That Baste.” Taking the whole thing in stride, the family took to the internet to respond to the video: It was recently announced the…

    It doesn’t get much bigger than Garth Brooks and Justin Timberlake. Two guys who have made a career in different genres, got a little bit of hate for trying other genres, and came out on the other end unscathed. Brooks is currently still in “social media is awesome” mode, so he captured this whole special performance of “Friends In Low Places” and uploaded on stage. The clip above is from a fan, of course, unless Brooks threw someone out there on that Bioshock skyhook /zipline thing he used to ride at concerts. Timberlake was performing at the Bridgestone Arena…

    The newest trailer for Final Fantasy XV premiered alongside Jump Festa 2015 in Japan and it’s the first “English” look at the newest game in the long running series. I put that in quotes because the dialogue is in English, but the sync is clear still in development. That doesn’t mean the game doesn’t look spectacular. It is a glossy, next/current/awesome gen take that is hopefully worth the wait. I say that as someone who doesn’t really play many MMORPGs, so I missed out on XIV. The one thing almost everyone that has written about this trailer has noted is…

    With just days before Christmas, you’d think Frosty the Snowman would be roaming the city streets to spread some holiday cheer. In reality, though, it’s Freaky the Scary Snowman — “Frosty’s evil twin” — who’s out wreaking havoc and scaring the bejesus out of unsuspecting passersby in Boston. Part of me says “don’t laugh”, only because *I know* I would scream my head off if a perfectly still decorative snowman suddenly lunged at me and growled. But then again, some of these reactions are priceless. Some choice moments: - the old man…

    CBS The officials have completely lost control of the Giants/Rams game. After Odell Beckham scored an early TD and got a taunting penalty for his celebration, the Rams went full force after him and after a few minor scuffles (Including Josh Brown kicking a Rams player in the face after a kickoff) we had a full blown fight complete with 4 ejections after a dirty hit by Alec Ogletree on Beckham. Beckham caught a short pass and made his way towards the sideline, and Alec Ogletree pushed him out, then tackled him out of bounds, a clear foul. Beckham retaliated by throwing the ball in…

    21 Dec 2014 | 1:30 pm
    Getty Image Because Atlanta defeated New Orleans and Carolina beat Cleveland, the Falcons and Panthers will meet on the last Sunday of the NFL season to determine the winner of the league’s most ridiculed division. Of course, it does mean a home playoff game, so who cares about jokes? The Saints were reportedly eliminated from playoff contention with today’s loss, though I will admit I don’t understand how, if New Orleans won in Week 17 and Carolina and Atlanta tied, a 7-9 record would not best a 6-8-2 record. It’s an extremely unlikely scenario, but it’s a hair…

That means we have to brace for the first Cowboys playoff appearance since 2009. We had a handy guide earlier this season, in case you need a refresher. Had Philly won yesterday, we could cling to the hope that DeMarco Murray not playing or being limited could be enough to make the Cowboys lose to a team that has little reason…

Duke has the top overall player in Jahlil Okafor, and the Blue Devils’ Dec. 3 victory at Wisconsin is the best win by any team this season. But would things have been different if the game were played on a neutral court. The same question could be asked about Arizona’s home overtime win against Gonzaga.

  • Stephon Gilmore Injury: Updates on Bills Star's Concussion and Return

    21 Dec 2014 | 4:16 pm
    Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore suffered a concussion against the Oakland Raiders and will miss the remainder of the game. The Bills' official account passed along the latest:   Gilmore, 24, has enjoyed a career year for Bufffalo with three interceptions and three tackles for loss. Given his success for the Bills, losing him for an extended period would be a huge loss in the secondary. Luckily, the Bills have a plethora of pass-rushers like Mario Williams that can limit the damage for the passing defense. Going against a potent New England Patriots offense in Week 17, however,…

That's saying something, given that the Redbirds were founded in 1920. Still, it's not hard to see why Church feels that way. The winner of Sunday's game will win the NFC West and secure a first-round bye. The loser will be on the road in the Wild Card round, likely to face whoever "wins" the NFC South. As well have the Cardinals have played this year, and as much…

The Padres only finalized the trade for Myers on Friday. With the trade last week of Jimmy Rollins and GM Ruben Amaro Jr. admitting the franchise would be better off without Ryan Howard, the Phillies find themselves torn in regards to Hamels, who is due $96MM through 2018 with a 2019 club option worth $20MM ($6MM buyout).

    Mark
    21 Dec 2014 | 7:19 pm
    The Arkansas Razorbacks hope to continue their winning ways with a win versus the Milwaukee Panthers. The defending Horizon champion Milwaukee Panthers haven't gotten off to the greatest of starts with a 5-7 record as both ends of the floor have not been on the same page. That has been an issue in losses in three of four following a 61-56 defeat at SIU-Edwardsville on Saturday. This wasn't a thing of beauty for either side with a combined 34 turnovers but the Cougars 43%-31.7% shooting edge was enough to win with the Panthers likely losing the game on their 3-21 performance from long range.

    Well, there goes that golden piece of parental logic.  For years, we’ve been arguing, imploring and threatening our kids to get off their Xbox, PS4 or even Wiis (are those still around?) and get outside for some fresh air and reality.  It isn’t healthy, we argued, to sit in front of that TV and play video games for hours.  While we still have the cardiovascular argument in our corner, new research just confirmed that gaming actually improves our kids’ ability to learn new sensorimotor skills.Playing “first person” games, like Call of Duty or Madden, drops the user…

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.

    For many individuals, particularly under the age of 25, earning a career as a professional poker player seems incredibly appealing. For players with the ideal set of skills, a successful professional poker career typically doesn’t come with the boredom of a 9-to-5 existence — a lifestyle that many of us can only dream of. And let’s not forget the opportunity for international travel. However, the world of professional poker is not for the faint of heart, and even the most experienced players may take a break from the game at one point or another to explore other career options.

    There's a lot of things you might not know about Waldorf, Maryland 2015 defensive back Juwuan Briscoe. That's intentional; he doesn't want to talk much about himself. He's a player from a high school (Thomas Stone) of just over 1300 and a three-star prospect at cornerback, where he's ranked as the 35th-best at his position. A position, you might not know, that he only started playing this year. Still, he was named The Washington Post's All-Met Player of the Year this past week.

    As Ohio State prepares for its showdown with Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, one thing I keep wondering about is how Nick Saban will approach the game on the defensive side of the ball. Alabama’s run defense is very good and probably doesn’t need much fine tuning. Opponents average only 2.81 yards per carry against the Crimson Tide. But Bama has precisely one game film worth of meaningful snaps to try to figure out how to shut down Cardale Jones and the passing attack. I don’t think the Buckeyes will be as stingy with the designed quarterback runs in the Sugar Bowl as they were against…

    How quickly can a coach lose his influence on the team?   When teams lose, we tend to blame the coach.   Is it fair? Yes and no.  Peer pressure can destroy a team.   Team culture will dictate the outcome.  Culture and work ethic are viral. When you have individual players that negatively influence the team, you lose the team.  Do you have a team virus? As a coach, you want your players to talk, to communicate, to give each other information and feedback about the situation at hand. However, you don't want players to "throw each other under the bus" during…

  • Stanford Trampled by Tennessee

    C and R's Stanford Women's Basketball Blog

    The good news? The Stanford Women’s Basketball team held Tennessee to 27 first half points. The bad news? Stanford only scored 15 in the same period. Stanford shot 23% in the first, making five of 21. They shot 25% for the game. To be fair, both teams struggled early on. Tennessee shot 35 % in the first before heating up in the second. How bad was it for Stanford? They were stuck on 10 points for eight minutes, from 10:24 to 2:10 left in the first. Stanford scored one basket over the last 10 minutes of the first half. Tennessee guard/forward Jaime Nared (31) and Stanford forward Erica…

    Tweet During the Black Friday / Cyber Monday marketing blitz, several teams used the offer of “No Ticket Fees!” as their main promotional message, and for good reason. Customers HATE paying ticket fees, and the removal of these fees as a way to “discount without discounting” leads to strong conversion rates and ticket sales. Well the fact that this works should tell us something about the model teams use with their ticketing partner to sell tickets. Simply put… If consumers hate ticket fees, then let’s stop using them!

    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

While former Australian speedster Gillespie envisions 26-Test batsman Hughes eventually being immortalised at Adelaide Oval, there’s little room for sentiment in the make-up of a fast bowler. Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Peter Siddle and/or Josh Hazlewood will be forced to find the fire within from Tuesday against India despite Hughes’s tragic end.Gillespie was devastated to leave close mate and former…

State law prohibits the sale of imitation guns in realistic colors such as black, blue, silver, or aluminum, unless it has a non-removable one-inch-wide orange stripe running down both…
  • The Lakers Honor Kobe At The Staples Center For Passing Michael Jordan On The NBA’s All-Time Scoring List

    Ball Like Kobe Upon passing Michael Jordan and becoming third on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, Kobe Bryant received a standing ovation. The only problem — if you can even consider it that — was the fact that Kobe’s scoring accolade didn’t actually take place in Los Angeles on his home court, but in Minnesota against the Timberwolves. Regardless, fans and players alike stood up to honor the Black Mamba. Yesterday (12/19) before taking the court against Kevin Durant and the Thunder, the Lakers — along with Magic Johnson — paid tribute to Kobe Wan…

    The Red Sox have traded third baseman Will Middlebrooks to the San Diego Padres for catcher Ryan Hanigan.  Middlebrooks became a trade chip once the Red Sox signed Pablo Sandovol to play third base. It is great to see a graduate of Rollins College join the Red Sox, since I am also an alumni of the school.
  • Goodbye to Allen Webster

    Michael Passanisi
    17 Dec 2014 | 7:34 am
    Along with Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster was the first of the “prospect hurlers” to be dealt away by the Sox. Obtained from the Dodgers in the 2012 megatrade, Webster pitched well at Pawtucket the last two years but was wildly inconsistent at the big league level. Nearly everyone who saw Webster pitch was impressed by his stuff. Signed by LA in 08, the 24-year-old pitched well in every level of minor league competition. In 7 seasons, he went 46-33 with an ERA of 3.40. His ratio of hits to innings pitched and walks to strikeouts were also very good. Webster may have fallen victim…

  • Liverpool (2) Arsenal (2): Last Minute Drama Sees Reds Rescue a Point

    Steven McMillan
    21 Dec 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Martin makes the highlight reel Deep down every Kopite knew that the 5-1 pasting that we handed Arsenal in this fixture last season just wasn’t on, but by the way Liverpool started, you never would have thought it. That is, until you saw the way they ended. Philippe Coutinho looked like he’d handed the Reds the lead on the stroke of half-time when his low shot was drilled into the bottom corner of the net, but Mathieu Debuchy somehow out-jumped Martin Skrtel to nod home with practically the final touch of the opening period. Olivier Giroud put the Gunners ahead just after the hour…

The veteran shot-stopper looked primed to join Liverpool on a short term deal once he proved his fitness, only to start training with bitter rivals Manchester United back in October, but his story has taken a bit of a turn since then.

    Novak Djokovic has won the last two ATP World Tour Finals at London’s O2 Arena – and the betting market seems to suggest he’s a foregone conclusion to win the 2014 event too. This is understandable; with Rafael Nadal out due to an appendix operation, Djokovic’s competition has been diluted. It seems as if the main challenge will come from veteran Roger Federer and UK hopeful Andy Murray. As things stand the pre-tournament betting, Djokovic is a 5/6 chance, followed by Roger Federer at a best-priced 4-1 and Andy Murray available at a maximum of 7-1. And if you were staking your life on…

    When football trick plays work, they’re a lot of fun to watch. A well-run trick play might make the local news, and the better ones can go from a lot of hits on YouTube to a viral sensation. Trick plays can also change the outcome of games. In addition to plays resulting in scores, the plays can be demoralizing for opponents. From PeeWee games to the NFL, you’ll find coaches trying to outfox the opponents with some trickery.

However all these link baiting are very much related to onpage optimization(what you do on your site). If that is the case, probably you want to consider changing the shooting angle. That means you will want to move around your subjects, circling your subjects, taking picture from down to up or get high to shoot down to the subjects.

    A good photographer can get the shots you want without endless hours of posed groups. Work with your photographer before the wedding to set aside the necessary time to do your groups. Be sure to include travel time and a little extra time for inevitable surprises and delays. Most photographers should have a shot list of the most popular groupings you can review prior to the wedding to see what you would like to do. The first issue was the text-to-speech ability of the device. Authors went ballistic over it. They claimed the reading of the text was an attempt to get around paying royalties.

This is what I was thinking after watching the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak come to a humbled end by the competitive ball play of the Chicago Bulls (100-97). While the game and real-life relationships are worlds apart, it’s beneficial to notice the similarities.

    Richard Sherman can contain a lot of wide receivers. Nothing can contain his mouth. Richard Sherman v. Patrick Peterson is a real, entertaining rivalry that is sort of silly because they're both talented cornerbacks. That won't stop Sherman from stoking the fire, however: Sherman: If I gave up that many touchdowns I think I'd be benched on our team. We have a level of accountability, and I don't know if he should be mentioned with us. Yup, Sunday night is going to be fun.

    Of all the games on Sunday, only one had absolutely no playoff ramifications whatsoever: the New York Giants versus the St. Louis Rams. The very definition of a play-out-the-sched game, this one naturally descended into madness. There was plenty of chippiness from both teams throughout the game; even the Giants kicker got in on the act with an unnecessary roughness penalty. But what tore the roof off the joint was a late tackle; St. Louis' Alec Ogletree threw New York's Odell Beckham Jr. out of bounds in a way that Beckham didn't much care for.

No one on the Yahoo staff considered Tannehill a Top 10 quarterback for fantasy's championship week.  So much for all that. Sunday's home game against Minnesota turned into an afternoon of pinball.

    European PGA golfer Nick Faldo has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Back in 2008, Faldo made a comment about Sergio Garcia and he has been paying for it ever since. First, fellow European Ian Poutler threw Faldo under the bus in his autobiographical book. Now another European golfer is upset with Faldo as well. Sam Torrance was part of that 2008 Ryder Cup team and he hasn’t forgotten about those comments either.

    Believe it or not, there are a few scenarios where the playoff lineups could be locked up after this weekend. That's unlikely, but still a possibility. There a few 8 - 6 teams in the AFC that are hanging on by the slimmest of statistical threads, but it's in the NFC where things are really strange, primarily due to the awful performance of the NFC South. It's possible for the Dallas Cowboys to finish as well as 11 - 5 and still miss the playoffs. They control their own destiny, but have the tougher road than their closest division pursuer, the Eagles. Both teams travel to Washington, but…

    In the wake of the Chicago Bears' announcement that backup QB Jimmy Clausen would replace long-time starter Jay Cutler for Sunday's game against the Lions, it made me wonder what was really behind the move. Although the real reason is probably pretty straight forward, something like wanting him to remain healthy so they could trade him and his league-high contract after the season, it's possible there are more subtle reasons.After starting his career in Denver, it has become clear that orange just isn't his color. Of course that rules out a number of teams for a trade, including Miami,…

I'm hoping it's warm enough in Jacksonville so they show a lot of shots of the swimming pool in the end zone seats. Tennessee (2 - 12) 17 @ Jacksonville (2 - 12) 20: The season is winding down for most teams, but it's been over for a while for the Jaguars and Titan, who meet tonight with identically terrible records. They are also pretty close in their stats, with both giving up over 70 yards per game than they gain. That's really no way to…

    Not a bad week, going 14 - 2 after a frustrating 8 - 8 the week before. I wanted to go with the Bills, but just couldn't make myself count on their offense to produce points. Of course, had Jordy Nelson been able to hold on to a sure touchdown catch, the result might have been different. Without any real upsets, several teams were able to clinch playoff berths, but home field is still up for grabs in both conferences, as well as a number of divisions. Perhaps the most compelling race, despite the lousy records of the teams involved, in the NFC South, where 6 - 8 New Orleans sits on top. But 5…

    Three games left and only the New England Patriots look like a lock to win their division. We also have a race where the best record in the NFC South can only be 8 - 8, but in all likelihood won't be. When in week 15 we have a 4 - 8 - 1 Carolina team still in contention is strange, if not unprecedented. Meanwhile, in Cleveland, Johnny Manziel gets his first NFL start with his Browns probably needing a win to stay alive for a playoff spot, one of several 7 - 6 teams that face the same challenge.

The Vikings have quietly had a successful season, entering the game with 6-7 record, while handing the reins of the offense to rookie Teddy Bridgewater, who has shown that NFL teams should factor in more than one poor showing at Pro Day when it comes to drafting a quarterback. Bridgewater, at one time thought to be the first pick in the…

    The shutout by 24 points that the St. Louis Rams handed the Washington Redskins this past Sunday was about as frustrating a game as the team has played so far. Quarterback Colt McCoy was sacked six times. His replacement (when he had to leave the game due to a neck injury), Robert Griffin, III, was sacked as well. The running game was non-existent, the passing game was inconsistent and the defense featured the “same old thing” in terms of secondary breakdowns and poor tackling that spectators have become used to.

Feats of strength and coordination dazzle the eye in performances of spirit and positive energy. The sheer difficulty of the routines seen at national cheerleading competitions seem to dispel any prejudices against the sport; old ideas of pom poms waving are left in the dust. So let’s put the stereotypes away, and see what this sport is all about. Last year, at the high school competition put on by the National Cheerleaders Association, the Broken Arrow varsity cheer…
  • Shoulder Mobility: Two Exercises to Improve Your Mobility

    High School Illustrated
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:07 am
    Good shoulder mobility can not only improve shoulder function, but also improve performance and limit injuries. With athletes now specializing in one sport at an early age and many of them increasing their training outside of their sport, their shoulders can lose the flexibility and strength needed to perform at their best. Since most sports primarily use the “pushing” muscles during competition, these muscles can get very strong, but many times at the expense of the pulling muscles. This creates a muscle imbalance and possible decrease in range of motion which can lead to…

    The Michigan basketball team was bullied inside in Saturday’s 62-51 loss to Southern Methodist. For a closer look at the Wolverines’ struggles — and at the times they succeeded — check out our Five Key Plays. 1) Donnal delivers early from sets On Saturday morning, John Beilein told Mark Donnal to enter the SMU game with a shooter’s mentality. The Wolverines got him the ball early, and the freshman took advantage. Just 10 seconds after he checked in for the first time, a well-run set by Michigan got Donnal an open look from three, which he buried. Caris LeVert made a baseline…

    The problems facing the Michigan basketball team are numerous: The Wolverines aren’t hitting open looks, they’re struggling to establish an inside presence, they’re slow on defensive rotations and key players are injured. After Saturday’s loss to Southern Methodist, Michigan’s fourth-straight defeat, coach John Beilein was left seeking reasons for optimism. “I think there’s small positives tonight just in what Mark Donnal did,” he said. “And that’s not only for him — that’s for others to grow in their confidence for him. “But that’s what we need right now: We need…

    We’ve all heard this concept before… “90% of the game is half mental.” - Yogi Berra You know the mental side of the game is huge. Yet you probably spend the majority of our time training your body. All the while ignoring one of your most powerful assets…your mind! The best thing about working on your mental game is, you can do it just about anywhere. You don’t need to worry about space or equipment. You don’t need to worry about having someone to train with.

  • 5 Tips for Taking Great Leads and Putting Pressure on the Defense

    17 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    As a player, I loved running bases. It’s so super fun to push your limits, make your opponents sweat a little, and take extra bases any time the opportunity arises. Good baserunners give defenses something to think about. They’re always a threat. They make things tough for the opposing defense and add pressure to otherwise “routine” situations and plays. All this distraction on the bases often takes focus off the batter. It can also open up holes for batters to hit through. When you… take extra bases every chance you get put added pressure on the defense open up…

  • Why does Henrik Zetterberg refuse to shoot high in the shootout?

    Mike
    19 Dec 2014 | 9:35 am
    Henrik Zetterberg had to score. Boone Jenner had just beaten Jimmy Howard to give Columbus a 2-1 lead over the Red Wings in the shootout on Tuesday. Zetterberg was shooter No. 6. He skated in, faked a slapshot and then tried to slide the puck between Sergei Bobrovsky’s legs. It would’ve been slick if it worked. It didn’t. Bobrovsky calmly pushed the puck away. The Red Wings fell to 1-6 in the shootout this season. I know why he did it. Once upon a time Zetterberg was good in shootouts (or at least decent). Making a hard fake and sliding it five hole worked. But that was five…

At the time (I can’t say for sure any more) Berenson utilized 10-game segments to evaluate his team, so I used 10 game segments. On December 4, Grand Rapids Griffins coach Jeff Blashill explained to MLive.com that he uses five-game segments. That probably would’ve worked better when evaluating the Red Wings this time.

This was a 68 yarder with no seconds left. This was a record. This is would be the defining moment of the Lions season. Three and a half hours earlier, the Bills beat the Packers.

    Continuing with its progressive thinking, the Hofstra University Depart of Athletics hosted a contest for fans, students, designers and artists to submit possible basketball court designs.

There were nine winners that each contributed some component of the final court design, Hofstra said. “We thank all the wonderful Hofstra Basketball fans that submitted potential court…

It was interesting and all, and it got a shout out from Twitter follower leader Nick Swisher, but who really cares about any of those jokers? There were no San Francisco Giants on that list, so it was clearly a flawed list. Let us then focus on what matters: the San Francisco Giants.

    We have heard this now in two different seasons by two different head coaches.  Former Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan reiterated today on ESPN that Robert Griffin III has the abilities and talent to be as successful as he wants, but it all starts in the film room. “He has that ability,” Shanahan said. “He’s in charge of that himself, though. It takes a lot of work, a lot of studying. … He can be as good as he wants to be. But he has to make a commitment in that film room like he’s never done before.” It is difficult to tell from a fan perspective…

    The Washington Capitals remain on a tear, shutting out the New Jersey Devils 4-0 tonight.  The Caps extended their streak to eight straight games without a regulation loss, compiling an 6-0-2 record over that stretch. Washington and New Jersey skated to an uneventful, scoreless first period.  Mike Green put the Capitals on the board with a slap shot he put above Devils’ goalie Cory Schneider to give the Caps a 1-0 lead a little over the three minute mark of the second period.  The Green goal was his 4th of the season and was assisted by Jack Hillen and Nicklas Backstrom.  Nicklas…

    One has to wonder: when will this Knick odyssey end? This seemingly endless failure to build a winning franchise? Why has this been such a difficult task for such a storied franchise. It is very hard to understand how people who do this for a living haven’t figured this out. Now that Phil Jackson is on board you would think this would be figured out sometime soon. The first part of this season has been a disaster – and while Carmelo has won me over, I think unless they get a legitimate point guard who can defend and set everyone up, the Knicks are spinning their wheels. We have to…

    Some members of the media will have you believe that the Giants players have stopped playing for their coach. While most of them are just stirring the pot, some of them are clueless. The Giants defense showed heart and played well enough to win under their embattled DC Perry Fewell. It was the offense, in particular Eli Manning, who gave the game to the 49ers. With Pugh out, Manning was under pressure all game and until the 4th quarter, the running game was no help. We have seen Eli have bad games but this was almost laughable. While I long for the days where the Giants would run it four…

The Giants must show discipline on defense this week or it will be another disaster. Can Perry Fewell put his defense in position to compete this week or will this team give another sub-par effort? On the other side of the ball, the running game should get a boost depending on how many snaps Jennings will play, but let’s hope Eli stays patient and doesn’t force the ball into double…

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…

    22 Sep 2014 | 3:58 am
    Gang Green squares off against yet another quality NFC North opponent on Monday Night. This time Da Bears coming off their amazing comeback victory against 49ers visit the Jets. The key matchup of this game is Da Bears offensive line keeping Jay Cutler off the ground. If he can stay clean, Cutler can tear apart the Jets young and battered secondary. The Jets have to take advantage of a weak Bears run defense. They also can not settle for field goals, the Jets must score touchdowns to win this game. Look for Da Bears to target tight end Martellus Bennett and running back Matt Forte in the…

    21 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    The Giants season is on the brink of disaster this Sunday, as they host the Houston Texans. Tom Coughlin’s bunch can not afford another 0-3 start to the season.   The Texans defense is a formidable group that can put pressure on the quarterback, led by the recent Powerball winner All-Pro J.J. Watt. He should have a clear path to the backfield against a patchwork offensive line.   Eli has to take advantage of the Texans secondary. If the Giants offensive line can keep Eli clean Manning can make plays in the passing game. The Giants defense have been stout against the run, and…

    Embroiled in a national debate over a domestic abuse problem, the NFL rolled along to week two. Roger Goodell must be praying for Sundays to zip by as fans immerse themselves in the action instead of the growing off the field issues. Week two saw more of the craziness that week one brought as three prominent teams: Seahawks, Saints, Colts were upset in the waning moments of their games. The Packers, Eagles, and Bears also overcame multiple score deficits to win their games. The most talked about game after week two commenced was played in Lambeau Field as the Green Bay Packers rallied from an…

    This week’s Gridiron Rundown features NFL Kickoff Weekend. Yet again in what seems like a never ending, pulse pounding, opening slate of games. The week started off in what seems like the inevitable quest of a budding dynasty in the Emerald City as the defenseless Packers had their asses handed to them by the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. It’s too bad Green Bay general manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy can’t clone ten more Clay Matthews replace the sorry sack of players they currently have on defense. Sunday brought the chaos we all love, as…

  • Skeptical Football: A Tale Of Two Quarterbacks Struggling Against The Buffalo Bills

    Benjamin Morris
    20 Dec 2014 | 5:55 am
    There’s a bit of a schism in sports fandom. On one side there are those who want more and more statistical analysis (Hi, everybody!); on the other there are those who think stats are overused and blanch at how sabermetrics and analytics have changed what it means to be a good fan.But I have a theory about this latter group: In general, they’re not really anti-stats. Virtually every argument about sports on TV or online is made using stats of one sort or another.1 A typical exchange between talking heads includes one guy emphasizing one set of stats (“He throws a lot of touchdowns!”),…

    I can see Madison Square Garden from my Manhattan apartment. This year, the arena installed LED lights along the exterior columns of the building — blue, red and white for New York Rangers games; orange and blue for New York Knicks games. They outshine everything else along a drab stretch of Eighth Avenue. When the Knicks colors shine, I’m reminded that there’s a dreadful basketball team playing a few blocks from me.The Knicks are 5-22 on the year, on pace for their worst season in the not-exactly-glorious history of the franchise. But unlike a lot of bad teams, the Knicks are not…
  • NFL Week 16 Playoff Implications: When Things Start To Shake Out

     The Arizona Cardinals continue to get no respect. Despite an NFC best 11-3 record, Las Vegas has them as eight-point underdogs, at home, against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Similarly, our rankings, which are derived from point spreads, have the Cardinals pegged as just the 19th best team in the NFL. Their “generic points favored”16 is essentially zero.The Cardinals are, quite literally, average.Of course, this is largely a reflection of the Cardinals’ starting quarterback situation. Because of injuries to Carson Palmer and backup Drew Stanton, Arizona will start Ryan…

    A. Salam Qureishi grew up in India and knew nothing about football — or America. And yet in the early 1960s, Qureishi, a computer programmer and statistician, helped the Dallas Cowboys overhaul their scouting system, replacing hunches with hard numbers.The result: five Super Bowl appearances and two titles. FiveThirtyEight and ESPN Films present “The Cowboys and the Indian,” directed by Mark Polish.

    On Nov. 30, Kosta Karageorge, a defensive lineman for Ohio State, was found dead of a gunshot wound — an apparent suicide. His family cited his multiple sports-related concussions (Karageorge was also a wrestler) as contributing to confusion and depression that may have led to his death.If confirmed as a suicide, Karageorge’s death would be the latest in a series of suicides among current and former football players. As a result, players and advocates have increasingly linked depression and suicide to the long-term impact of repeat concussions. In recent years, the NFL has…

    Colorado @ Detroit -1.5 (+145)The wings have fallen victim to straight up bad luck lately. They have been out playing everyone but failing to bury when it matters. Tonight a much weaker Colorado team comes to town. I expect the Wings to put on a scoring clinic at home.Buffalo @ Boston (OVER 5 +105)Boston will probably win but the line sucks. Buffalo is good for a goal or two and Boston is good for 4-5 on their own. Philadelphia @ Winnipeg (-165)Philly is turning into just a flat out bad team this year.

Their coach never accomplished anything with Utah and isn't particularly liked by his players. Oh and their franchise player is just turning the corner when it comes to acting like an adult in public places. Combine these things and we're nearing a tipping point with this team.

    The Sacramento Kings recently fired head coach Mike Malone, a move that surprised many. From the outside there seems to have been a certain level of distrust between Malone and the higher ups of the King’s organization. The General Manager Pete D’Alessandro didn’t have any part in hiring Malone (D’Alessandro was actually hired two weeks later) and the popular opinion is that Vivek Ranadive is a meddling owner that imposes too much on his staff. Moves like signing Royce White last season and talks of trading for Josh Smith this off season were opposed by Malone. Obviously…

    In what may be the biggest surprise of the young NBA season, the Sacramento Kings have fired coach Mike Malone. Despite a strong start to the season, the team had lost eight of their last ten, though a chunk of those games can be attributed to the illness of their superstar DeMarcus Cousins. The initial reports came from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. According to Wojnarowski, Malone was in jeopardy already, but the team’s quick start saved his job. Once they fell off that pace, ownership was ready to pull the trigger and pull it fast. Still, this is a shocking move, considering…

Over the past couple of seasons, Theo Epstein and Co. have been working to build the next powerhouse in baseball. While on the surface it may seem he hasn’t done much yet, a talented pool of prospects are on their way up to The Show. Players like Kris Bryant and Addison Russell lead that charge and now with some recent acquisitions, the Cubs are now even closer to contending. In the biggest signing of the offseason so far, the Cubs inked Jon Lester to a six-year, $155 million deal with a…

    One of the biggest (if not the biggest) names of free agency has finally made his decision. Jon Lester will be taking the mound on the north-side of Chicago next year, pitching for the Cubs, pending a physical. The lefty hurler has reportedly agreed to a six-year, $155 million deal. He was in talks with at least Boston and San Fransisco, but in the end, Chicago was able to make the most attractive offer. This also reunites Lester with president Theo Epstein who was there when Lester first pitched for the Red Sox. This is a huge move for the Cubs, who may be converting from a terrible…

But more than anything, I miss the fire.Don’t get me wrong; I love this current Buffalo Bills team.

But something it seems specifically the offense is so clearly lacking (other than points in red-zone trips) is a little…

    16 Dec 2014 | 6:46 am
      On Monday, the Royals went out and signed themselves a right fielder. Alex Rios has been a rumor the last couple of trade deadlines, and it seems Dayton Moore still had his eye stuck on him. Rios signed a 1 year deal worth $11 million. He will take over right field from recently departed Nori Aoki. There are two sides to this signing as Rios has displayed power in the past, hitting 17 or more home runs 6 times in his career. The caveat to that is the down season he had last year in which he only hit 4. He finished 2014 with a line of .260/.298/.394 and if he is to repeat that type of…

    It’s December, and my baseball withdrawals are in full swing. I was having a bit of anxiety, so I decided to re-watch the 2014 Wildcard game. Let’s go back, shall we? Royal Rewind: This was the game that Kansas City fans have dreamed of for a very, very long time. For the first time in 29 tedious years, there was finally new life in the Royals fan base. They fought so hard to get here, and by the end of the night, they’d either move on to the ALDS, or they’d go home. Naturally, both teams would have their aces on the mound. James Shields had an up and down regular…

    Manchester United – A Devilish Efficiency   Manchester United seems to re-become a real force in Premier League. After the disastrous last season in which Man Utd did not manage to qualify in any European competition, Louis Van Gaal was brought in to save the sinking ship.  After 10 matches in Premier League Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United was lying on an incredible 1oth place. Fortunately, the fate favored the 63 years old Dutch manager and he managed to lead Man United to the podium (after six consecutive wins – 2 of them against Arsenal and Liverpool). The Red…

    Sergio Aguero – A Blue Talisman   Sergio Aguero is one of the best strikers in the world and undoubtedly the main goalscorer for Manchester City. The 26 years old Argentinian was the most prolific striker of the team since his arrival on Etihad in 2011 (30 goals in 2011/2012 season; 17 goals – 2012/2013 season; 28 goals – 2013/2014 season; 19 goals so far in 2014/2015 season).

Moreover, these 10 tips for running a marathon can make the difference whether you will finish the race or not. 1.

He came to replace Txiki Begiristain, who joined Manchester City. After the successful Guardiola period, many experts questioned Barcelona’s transfer policy. But who must be blamed for the transfer policy: Rossel for not making funds available or Andoni Zubizarreta for making some poor deals? In his first year as Barcelona’s Director of Football, Andoni Zubizarreta signed Adriano and Javier Mascherano. Those 2 players…

    Let’s be honest! Manchester United did poorly again in their match against Liverpool. Yet, Louis Van Gaal and his men walked away with a 3-0 win and is now enjoying six successive wins in a row. If Manchester United wins the Premier League this year, then David De Gea must be named as “Player of The Season“. That is of course, provided that he can continue with his current form, which is “Out of This World“. Currently the Spaniard is in a class of his own. Strikers will need to do something special to beat this guy. The picture below best describes De Gea…

I had high hopes for them, especially for our women squash who, a day earlier, shocked top seeds and defending champions Egypt 2-0 in the semi-finals. But, England was just a bit better yesterday. Nonetheless, they still made us proud by finishing runners-up for the first time and put up a gallant fight against seven times champion. Meanwhile, in Abu Dhabi, our…

    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?

Turning Point: The Rams had pulled within seven with 1:44 remaining in the third quarter, but on the very next drive, Eli Manning found Odell Beckham Jr. for an 80-yard bomb. The Rams were able to respond, but the 14-point advantage proved to be more than they could overcome. Giants MVP: This hasn’t been Eli Manning’s best season, but he was excellent today.

    Reading have appointed former West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke as the club’s new manager on a two-and-a-half year deal, replacing the sacked Nigel Adkins. Clarke has been out of football for just over a year, after being relieved of his duties as West Brom manager following a difficult start to the 2013-14 season.

    Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has admitted he may sign a new striker in January, as reported by The Mirror. The Chilean-manager may be forced into the transfer market after Edin Dzeko joined both Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic on the injury-list. Pellegrini does have one striker left in 18-year-old Jose Angel Pozo, but his inexperience may prove to be an issue for City. Dzeko’s injury in the pre-match warm-up against Leicester on Saturday handed Pozo his first start for the club, and he is set to make many more in the run-up to January. Targets Although they will be looking from…

Die Kanadier bezwangen die New York Knicks vor heimischem Publikum mit 118:108 und feierten damit bereits den sechsten Sieg in Folge. Bester Werfer der Gastgeber war wieder einmal Point Guard Kyle Lowry, der am Ende auf 22 Punkte kam und mit neun Assists nur knapp ein Double-Double verpasste. Auch 28 Punkte von Superstar Carmelo Anthony halfen New York nicht, insbesondere die starke Dreierquote der Raptors von über 42 Prozent brach den Gästen…

  • Ervin Santana Newest Member of Twins’ Crowded, Mediocre Rotation

    Thompson
    11 Dec 2014 | 3:16 pm
    Terry Ryan and the Minnesota Twins made their one move of the Winter Meetings, reaching an agreement with Ervin Santana on a four-year, $55 million deal that features a vesting option that goes into effect if Santana tosses 200 innings in 2018, which would make the deal worth $68 million. It’s the biggest free agent deal in Twins’ history, which says a lot. It’s a smidge bigger than what Ryan gave Ricky Nolasco this time last year, which says even more. Terry Ryan doesn’t dip his toe into the free agent market very often, and when he does, it’s just a toe. No…

    3 Dec 2014 | 1:50 pm
    Minnesota Twins’ GM Terry Ryan is putting his neck out, again, signing Torii Hunter to a $10.5 million, one-year deal. Frankly, this Twins reunion shit is getting old – literally. Hunter will be 39 years old next year, is the worst defensive right fielder in the game, and will be severely overpaid. He should be making low-end DH money, yet he’s being paid ten times more than any outfielder the Twins have, despite being worse than any outfielder the Twins have (I think Arcia will hit much better than Hunter in 2015). Surprising, right? Not if you’re a Twins fan. As a fan…

    It is the day before the G20 Summit kicks off in Brisbane (Queensland, Australia). The temperature is expected to peak at 40ºC (104ºF) both on Saturday and Sunday. Throw tropical humidity in the mix and you know it will be unbearable. Of course, that is the least of the worries for most people, especially police, protesters and civil liberties groups. Because no one wants a rerun of what happened at the G20 Summit in Toronto (Canada) in 2010, where police used kettling on protesters, and it was rumoured that police also instigated the protesters so they could practice for what they had been…

    According to a 2013 survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, 43% of American physicians use mobile health technology for clinical purposes. That number is bound to increase dramatically thanks to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approving new services to be covered in 2015, including mental health services. Still, due to the limited number of mobile health services covered by American health insurance companies, the majority and most popular mobile health applications are designed to provide preventative care.

The race had seen a battle largely between Buemi and Jean-Eric Vergne, who made his Formula E series debut.

  • Russell Westbrook wins jump ball over 7’1″ center (VIDEO)

    Jason Whitney
    15 Dec 2014 | 11:08 pm
    Jason Whitney Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook stands at 6’3, but is one of the most explosive players in the NBA. Phoenix Suns center Alex Len is 7’1 and probably hasn’t lost too many jump ball during his basketball career. Well, add Westbrook to the short list of players who have won jump balls over Len because that’s exactly what the point guard did in the third quarter of Sunday’s game. Simply, ridiculous.

  • Lakers post another record a day after Kobe Bryant passed Michael Jordan

    15 Dec 2014 | 10:35 pm
    Jason Whitney The Los Angeles Lakers may have celebrated a bit too hard after Kobe Bryant broke into third place all-time in the NBA’s scoring record book last night. Whatever the case, the Lakers came out flat – and that may be an understatement. And it wasn’t like the Lakers were playing the Chicago Bulls 72-10 team from 1996. Instead, they were playing the Indiana Pacers who were riding an eight-game losing streak. At any rate, the Lakers scored only 27 first half points and trailed the Pacers by 33 points at half-time. That was good for their worst first half since the…

    Jim Racalto Walmart.com is now offering plush dolls of some of your favorite athletes. Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony is one of them…except the doll offered looks eerily similar to Jeremy Lin, and also has Lin’s number when he was with New York. Lin hasn’t played for the Knicks in two years, but the disparities between Anthony and the doll are hilarious. Not only is it the wrong number, but the doll clearly looks to be Jeremy Lin in every aspect. For only $13.88, Carmelo Jeremy Lin Anthony can be yours!

    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

After amassing an impressive 29 first-half points (Dallas led 73-29 at the half), the Sixers exploded for 41 in the second half en route to a 123-70 loss, their 8th straight to start the season.   Words like “laughingstock” come to mind and though the season is still young, discussions about this year’s Sixers being “the worst NBA team ever” are blooming among NBA pundits, including USA Today’s Mike Foss.

    Plain and simple, Max Scherzer is not worth the amount of money that he is demanding. Don’t get me wrong, Scherzer is a very good pitcher and would be a great addition to any rotation in baseball; however, Scherzer and agent Scott Boras seem to think that he is worth over 200 million for 7 years. Boras believes that Scherzer is entitled to Clayton Kershaw type money, but Scherzer isn’t Kershaw in any shape or form.

Why do Chicago Bears fans say "Bear Down"? Why do Cincinnati Bengals fans say "Who Dey"? "Skol, Vikings" is another popular saying heard around the league.

    Photo Source: SportsWorldReport.com  America loves their Dallas Cowboys. But aside from the Green Bay Packers, virtually no other NFL franchise can rival the Chicago Bears in overall history and legend. Once called the Decatur Staleys in 1920, the Chicago Bears have retired 14 jersey numbers; the most in the NFL and the third most in professional sports. While this is the ultimate tribute to the club's former players, a more significant tribute has been worn on the sleeves of the Chicago Bears' uniforms for 30 seasons now.

    12 Dec 2014 | 10:36 pm
    Photo Source: StoryvilleApparel.com The chant "Who Dat" has been in circulation throughout the Southern United States for many years, some say even before New Orleans had an NFL franchise (1967). Many people reference the two words in poems, minstrel shows and even on an old jazz record. Others reference St. Augustine High School, LSU and Alcorn State University as the true creators. After all, that's how people in places like Louisiana talk, right? However, the most widely accepted time frame for the chant's creation was in October of 1983 following the New Orleans Saints' loss to the San…

    The Baltimore Ravens put the nail in the own coffin with another abysmal performance resulting in a 25-13 loss to the Houston Texans. The defense allowed newly signed Case Keenum to move the ball all day long, and the offense was either shooting itself in their feet or tripping over them. As far as positives go, they may be out there, but I might be hard-pressed to find them. The Ravens find themselves out of the playoffs right now and have to hope for luck if they want to make the postseason. Based on the swan song of the past few weeks though, and that could result in more painful and…
