    Oakland Raiders QB Christian Ponder has been through a lot since he arrived in the NFL. His time with the Minnesota Vikings was painful and forgettable as he never had a steady line to protect him. The Vikings drafted Teddy Bridgewater last year which meant that Ponder’s time there was over.Now he is with the Raiders and finds himself in the same position he was in last year. Derek Carr, who was drafted by the Raiders last year is the unquestioned starter coming into the 2015 season. Ponder knows this and is now starting to embrace his role as a backup quarterback.   “My job, I…

  • Dwight Howard Mugged Andre Iguodala, Somehow Not Called a Flagrant

    Ty Duffy
    27 May 2015 | 8:52 pm
    Dwight Howard escaped suspension for hitting Andrew Bogut in the face in game four. Somehow, this “pick” on Andre Iguodala was not called a flagrant. Howard raised his forearm to get Iguodala in the head. He also “fended off” Iguodala with a closed fist underneath. Perhaps that’s a natural movement…in boxing.

UPDATE: Per ESPN, Thompson suffered an ear laceration and has returned to the game. He did not go through a concussion protocol, which seems odd. This is the second head incident for the Golden State Warriors this series. Stephen Curry hit his head on a scary fall in Game 4.

It's a solution anyone who's played Halo online knows and knows well: Just turn gravity down, and let the players do the rest.

Anaheim gave the Windy City a scare, but a backhand insurance goal by Andrew Shaw, beating the usually reliable glove of Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen with 3:32 left, was enough to force a decisive Game 7. Stephanie Vail had the highlight of Shaw's critical score: Craig Custance of ESPN The Magazine praised how Shaw not only put the puck past Andersen, but also how…

Commit to a run-heavy offense. Colin Kaepernick can’t carry an NFL team with his arm. When throws more than 30 passes in a game, his record is 4-8. That’s not a major knock against him. Only a handful of NFL quarterbacks can win…

  • NASCAR penalizes 3 teams for infractions at Coca-Cola 600 (The Associated Press)

    27 May 2015 | 4:11 pm
    NASCAR penalized three teams Wednesday for infractions at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Matt McCall, crew chief for Jamie McMurray, was placed on probation through Dec. 31 for a P2 penalty because the right rear quarter panel wheel opening had been modified after qualifying inspection for the Coca-Cola 600. Jimmie Johnson's team received a P1 penalty for receiving a written warning for the second consecutive race.
  • NASCAR: Biffle thinks Roush Fenway turning corner (The Associated Press)

    27 May 2015 | 1:26 pm
    Greg Biffle is not celebrating yet. Biffle had a strong two weeks at Charlotte Motor Speedway, capped by a second place in the Coca-Cola 600 - his best on-track showing this season. The Sprint Cup finish was just Biffle's second top 10 of the year (he was 10th in the Daytona 500) and only the third for Roush Fenway drivers this season.
  • Edwards' Coca-Cola 600 win gives Gibbs much to celebrate (The Associated Press)

    25 May 2015 | 7:22 am
    Joe Gibbs has had many special nights in football and auto racing. Few were bigger than Sunday's showing in the Coca-Cola 600. The highlight, though, was Carl Edwards' first victory for his new JGR team in NASCAR's longest race.
  • Carl Edwards races to first victory for new JGR team (The Associated Press)

    24 May 2015 | 11:41 pm
    Carl Edwards was as much relieved as he was excited to win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. After all, joining Joe Gibbs Racing means big expectations that he hadn't met this season before the Coca-Cola 600. Edwards outlasted Greg Biffle to win NASCAR's longest race, getting his 24th career victory, but first time since leaving Roush Fenway Racing to become JGR's fourth entry.

''But it finally happened.'' Smith, founder and head of Speedway Motorsports Inc., said he had kind of given up on his chances of reaching the hall a couple of years back, but found himself tickled by his inclusion.

  • NL West Notes: Gutierrez, Uribe, Thomas, D-Backs

    Steve Adams
    27 May 2015 | 7:42 pm
    Giants right-hander Juan Gutierrez has a June 1 opt-out clause approaching in his contract that will allow him to request his release if he is not added to the 25-man roster, as MLBTR reported back at the end of Spring Training. The 31-year-old has struggled in some regards at Triple-A this season, as he’s posted a 4.94 ERA thus far. However, he’s posted a nice 21-to-8 K/BB ratio in that time and is sporting a 3.42 FIP, suggesting that he may have better results were it not for a .400 BABIP. Gutierrez worked to a 3.96 ERA with 6.2 K/9 against 2.3 BB/9 in 63 2/3 innings for the…

Given that timeline, it’s fair to suggest that there’s a chance he could miss the remainder of the regular season. MLB.com’s Jen Langosch hears that the team is still deciding whether or not Adams will undergo…

    Athletics left-hander Scott Kazmir left today’s start against the Tigers with soreness in his throwing shoulder, and manager Bob Melvin told reporters after the game that Kazmir is undergoing an MRI (Twitter link via MLB.com’s Jane Lee). It’s not known at this time whether or not Kazmir will require a stint on the disabled list, but as an impending free agent and a potential trade target, that status of Kazmir is one that could have significant impact on storylines around the game in the coming months. To this point in the season, Kazmir has been brilliant, notching a 2.93…
  • Minor Moves: Hayes, Cordier, Romero

    Jeff Todd
    27 May 2015 | 4:18 pm
    Here are the day’s minor moves: Indians catcher Brett Hayes has accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Columbus, reports Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer (via Twitter). Hayes was designated for assignment after Yan Gomes was activated from the disabled list, and he could have elected free agency rather than heading back to Triple-A. The Giants have outrighted reliever Erik Cordier after he cleared waivers, Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News tweets. Cordier, 29, allowed just one earned run and struck out nine (versus two walks) in six MLB innings last year, but has yet to…

    27 May 2015 | 2:50 pm
    The Red Sox have acquired outfielder Carlos Peguero from the Rangers, Boston announced. Cash is headed back to Texas in the deal. Peguero, who had been designated for assignment by the Rangers last week, will join the Red Sox in Arlington for their upcoming weekend series against his former teammates. Boston certainly does not appear in want of options in the outfield, but its current mix includes only one left-handed bat: Daniel Nava (a switch-hitter). It is conceivable — though far from certain — that the addition of Peguero could ultimately lead to a transaction involving…

    27 May 2015 | 5:20 am
    It's a new day, children.  And don't sell cannabis to kids.   Washington’s retail marijuana businesses got calls from the state liquor control board before the sting operations began, warning them and reminding them about best practices when it comes to keeping weed out of kids’ hands. But when the board sent 18- to 20-year-old operatives into the first batch of stores this month to see if shops would sell them weed, four of them still failed the test. According to the board’s report released Wednesday, that amounted to 18% of 22 operations. . . . By the end of June, the state…

Attorney General Loretta Lynch called Rosenberg an “exceptional leader” with “unshakable integrity” in a statement regarding his appointment, yet proponents of pot reform have been left wondering whether the change will be for better or worse.

  • Raoni Monteiro is Suspended for 20 Months From the WSL

    Chase
    14 May 2015 | 6:46 am
    In a bold move from the WSL, Raoni Monterio has received a harsh punishment for the use of performance enhancing drugs while competing as a professional surfer. His suspension of 20 months started on December 12th of 2014 and ends August 12th of 2016. Whats perplexing is that the WSL's investigation determined that the use PEDs was "unintentional" and prescribed by a physician. I don't know if I fully believe this, as most people have a pretty good idea of what is in the supplements and other nutritional products they are using. And if it is true, I hope the physician takes full…

  • Anaheim Ducks vs. Chicago Blackhawks - 5/30/15 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

    Mark
    27 May 2015 | 11:44 pm
    The Anaheim Ducks and the Chicago Blackhawks meet in game seven with the winner heading to the Stanley Cup finals. While the experts are seldom correct when predicting the outcome of sporting events I have to say most were correct in predicting Anaheim would be taken to seven games in the Western Conference finals. The Ducks were unable to contain the Blackhawks attack in a 5-2 defeat at the United Center in game six. Anaheim could have ended the series with a win but never led and couldn’t come back once the Hawks took the lead. The Ducks were down 3-0 in the second before scoring but a…

    The Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox clash in game two to their doubleheader on Thursday. The Chicago White Sox shoot for a win in the second game of their twin bill at Camden Yards on Thursday afternoon. The White Sox have been the odd man out in the American League Central almost a quarter in to 2015. The team has yet to get their offense and pitching on the same page lately and as a result the .500 mark has gotten further away. I believe the White Sox are still a few players away from becoming a legitimate threat in the division but I also believe the talent base is in place and…

    The Chicago White Sox battle the Baltimore Orioles in game one of their doubleheader on Thursday. The Chicago White Sox are in dire need of a prolonged hot streak to stay on the radar in the American League Central. The White Sox had dropped seven of eight before knocking off Toronto 5-3 on the road. Starter Jeff Samardzija was outstanding with an unearned run allowed on eight hits and a walk over seven frames which was good for a no decision. The offense racked up 14 hits with Jose Abreu going 3-5 with a pair of RBI’s and a run while Adam LaRoche, JB Shuck and Gordon Beckham each logging…

    The Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles play game one of a doubleheader Tuesday afternoon. The Chicago White Sox need a won after losing five of their last seven games. The White Sox have scored 14 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games.

    10. Mezut Ozil (Arsenal) The Arsenal playmaker was terrific when he returned from injury, having played an integral part in both Arsenal's FA Cup run and Germany's win at the World Cup Ozil is fulfilling his massive potential. Look for Ozil to be even better in 2015/2016. 9. Christian Erikson (Tottenham) While many would argue that Harry Kane should be on this list Erikson's contribution to Tottenham this season has arguably been more important. Many of Kane's goals were the product of the Erikson's assists and Erikson also chipped in with ten goals, five of which were game winners. 8.Diego…

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Choose Your Words Carefully When Motivating Your Young Athletes

    21 May 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Your kids want you to be proud of them. This need for a parent’s approval can be a powerful or destructive force when it comes to youth sports. When we communicate goals for our budding superstars, the wording we choose can make all the difference.   New research out of Ithaca College shows the effect parents can have on their kids’ game-time anxiety, which can directly impact their performance and overall enjoyment of the game. Miranda Kaye, a professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences at Ithaca, knew from previous research that a coach exerts the primary influence…

Actually, researchers at the University of Illinois have found that just an hour of fun, active play not only gets kids in better shape but significantly improves their cognitive functioning.Plenty of previous studies have shown the link between fitness and better academic performance in the classroom but it wasn’t clear if this was a cause and effect relationship or just that smarter kids…
  • Training Your Eyes To Hit That Curveball

    17 Feb 2015 | 12:16 pm
    “Just keep your eye on the ball.”  Seems like simple enough advice for a young slugger at the plate.  That may work in the early years of Little League baseball when the pitches they see  have not yet cracked 50 mph.  But as the fastballs get faster and the change-ups get slower, having quick eyes and an even quicker perceptual brain is the only way hitters will be able to “hit it square” with a round bat and a round ball.   Which is exactly why psychology researchers at the University of California - Riverside (UCR) teamed up with the college’s varsity…
  • The Subliminal Power Of Positive Cheering

    3 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    Young athletes often hear phrases of encouragement like, “dig a little deeper” or “you have to want it more than they do” or, ideally, “be mentally tough.”  For most kids, these words from a coach, a parent or a teammate go in one ear and out the other.  But, what if there was actually some scientific substance to the words?  Could the smiling, confident face of a coach delivering a pep talk actually have a subliminal effect on performance?  While the conscious brain may dismiss this positive talk, the subconscious mind may actually be putting it to work,…

    As usual, Mom was right.  Her advice to get to bed early is being confirmed by human performance researchers, sleep specialists and sports medicine doctors. Kids, especially young athletes, need more sleep.  While common sense tells us that a lack of shut-eye will cause children to be grumpy from a lack of energy, new knowledge about the brain details how sleep affects not only their physiological functions but also their ability to learn new skills.The more well-known sleep state known as REM (Rapid Eye Movement) is the dreammaker that tries to put our day’s activities into the…

    Sellers of phony baloney sports memorabilia are tainting the billion-dollar-a-year sports industry. Scammers prey on individuals who love sports and are willing to lay down cash for purchases that reflect their fanaticism; their commitment to a team or favorite player. Fearing that a rare, autographed item at the “right” price will get away, a frenzied fan often exits an auction with what he believes to be a little piece of history. However, instead of being signed by his favorite sports figure, what he has actually purchased is a replica of the real thing. Without proper…

    Weird sports – they’re everywhere, and played by everyone. The things people do in the name of sports would curl your toes. No, really: one of those sports is toe wrestling. That didn’t quite make it into the Olympics, but it was not for lack of trying. When you think about it, there really is no such thing as a weird sport. All sports are just a way for humans to turn everyday activities into friendly competition, and explore the limits of our physicality.

    Ability is everything on the field, court, ice and pitch. If you can’t perform to the best of your physical abilities, someone will be ready to take your place. Your coaches and managers, who should be considered as mentors and borderline parental figures, won’t hesitate to replace you if your body is no longer able to perform the way it once did. This puts an enormous amount of pressure on men and women passionate about the sports they play. Unfortunately, it also fuels a culture of concealing pain and injury, which can have devastating effects on an athletes’ livelihood in both the…

    In the good old days (that were bad for extreme sports), keeping up-to-date with cool athletes amounted to magazine subscriptions and the occasional sports program. Often times those dirt bike, skiing and other extreme sports mags were published monthly – and finding a sports show covering anything beyond football, baseball, basketball or hockey was next to impossible. Yes, getting your extreme sports fix also meant waiting for the Olympic games every four years or catching an MX championship meet whenever the networks felt like carrying one.

    Late last night, Switzerland sent Johnny Law into a hotel to bust some of FIFA’s top power brokers on charges of wire fraud, racketeering, and money launder.   and the report is they are being extradited to the United States to face charges. Three part question here:  (1) Any surprise here, (2) What business does the U. S. have with this, and (3) Is there an entity inside of the U. S. that might want to watch their backs in terms of the feds potentially watching them, NCAA perhaps?

    On Tuesday, the Washington Mystics hosted the Minnesota Lynx at Verizon Center for a 20-minute analytic scrimmage, which is a step in the right direction for a league that hasn’t embraced analytics enough. The WNBA is behind the curve compared to the NBA when it comes to analytics. So when Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reported that the Washington Mystics and Minnesota Lynx would be playing a 20-minute “analytic scrimmage” on Tuesday, it certainly caught my eye. Before the scrimmage started, Mystics owner Ted Leonsis gave a 30-minute Q&A on what the scrimmage…

  • Sox Waste Another Strong Buchholz Start in Loss to Twins

    27 May 2015 | 5:45 am
    The Red Sox faced off with the Twins in last night’s game after a rain delay of about 90 minutes.  With the game starting at 9:30pm EST it felt like one of the games from the west coast swing.  The Sox had Clay Buchholz on the mound and while he struggled in the 1st inning, he settled in and gave a pretty good performance.  Buchholz only allowed two runs, but when the offense only scores one run you are still looking at a loss. Buchholz has been plagued this season by giving up runs in the 1st inning and he would continue that trend last night.  Buchholz looked shaky out of the gate…

    The Red Sox had a Memorial Day game in Minnesota and had Joe Kelly on the mound.  Kelly has been better as of late, but that would not continue yesterday.  Kelly struggled and didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning and put the Sox in a hole early.  The Sox offense was not able to make up the difference and the Twins coasted to a victory in the series opener. Kelly gave up a single run in the 1st inning when Mauer hit an RBI sac fly.  He got out of the inning without allowing any more runs to score, but he wouldn’t be so lucky in the 2nd inning.  Kelly gave up an RBI double to…

The Sox were the first to crack the scoreboard and grab the lead.  Mike Napoli came to the plate in the 2nd inning and showed that it wasn’t just CJ Wilson he could…

    The Red Sox were coming off a pretty brutal loss as they headed into Saturday game with the Angels.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound vs. CJ Wilson for the Angels.  Wright struggled out of the gate, but settled down nicely and let the Sox offense get those runs and then some back for him. Wright got into trouble in the 1st and the Sox were losing before the offense even took the field.  The knuckleball didn’t seem to be fooling anyone in the Angels lineup.  Wright gave up a 2 run RBI double to Calhoun and the Sox were losing 0-2.  It looked like it might be a…

    The Red Sox just lost a series against the Rangers and looked to rebound against the Angels.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound vs. Garrett Richards for the Angels.  Porcello started off well, but when the Angels were able to score 9 runs in the 5th inning that is a hard game to win. The Sox got on the scoreboard first in Friday’s game.  Mike Napoli hit a solo homerun in the bottom of the 2nd to have the home team leading 1-0.  Porcello didn’t allow his first run until the 4th inning when he gave up a solo homerun to Pujols and then an RBI groundout to Krauss.  Sox 1-2.

    With both the East and West Conference Finals at surprising  3-0 leads, the NBA has started mulling over the idea of moving the finals up a full week. The start of the NBA Finals is scheduled right now for June 4th. For fans, moving up the series would be a good thing. A week in between games would be dreadful. It would kill the momentum of the playoffs and probably kill ratings once the series did start. There are no scheduled events at Oracle Arena or Quicken Loans Arena that would make rescheduling the series a problem. For fans and journalists, it might. It is, after all, the start of…

The Cubs sent a letter to fans in March outlining their plans for the bricks before digging them up: “We are taking great care to preserve and protect your paver as work continues in and around the…

    Erik Voldness
    26 May 2015 | 1:37 pm
    Adrian Peterson is one of if not the top running back in football. There's little doubt that the Vikings will be a better team next season with AP as their starting running back, and for that reason the Vikings continue to insist they won't trade him.I don't think the Vikings are as against trading him as they've indicated publicly, but rather I think no teams stepped up and made an offer the Vikings deemed fair. If Dallas wants to give up multiple first round picks, I think you'd see the Vikings moving on from their talented star. Using AP's cap money to get two solid defensive starters…
  • Looking At Danny Santana

    Erik Voldness
    5 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Danny Santana had a fantastic rookie season. Santana's .319/.353/.472 slash line and his OPS+ of 130 are fantastic numbers for anyone, let alone a 23-year-old in his first big league season. Because of Santana's youth and the fact that he had what appears to be a breakout rookie season, the expectation for Santana is that he will continue to improve and build upon his great rookie season.To be blunt: That's highly unlikely. His strikeout to walk ratio was 98 to 19, and very rarely do players who can't control the strike zone continue to hit at a high level year after year.It's important to…
  • Aaron Hicks: Not a Bust (yet)

    Aaron Hicks is not yet a bust. I realize that's an unpopular opinion amongst the Twins faithful, but a simple understanding of his numbers makes it a fact.Calling Hicks a bust seems to stem from him struggling offensively over the last two seasons in the big leagues. The thought process seems to be that he got two years to show he belonged on the team, and he struggled. Of course, each season was less than half a season's worth of at bats, so Hicks first two years in the big leagues are really the equivalent of most rookies first seasons.To be fair, Hicks hasn't just struggled with the bat,…

And while it is true that Rubio's shooting leaves a lot to be desired, fans as usual focus on the "flashy" part of the game rather than the big picture.When Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown, many fans were convinced that he HAD to be the MVP, because he had won the triple crown for goodness sakes!

The stakes won’t be as high but it’s still a big game for both teams.  Michigan could be another good win against a Power 5 school whereas a win against BYU would help Michigan show that they are making a step back to being a national power.

    Anticipation for the last couple pay-per-views has been low, while the execution has been better than expected, for the most part.

Last month, very few people anticipated that Roman Reigns vs. Big Show would steal the show, but the match was booked perfectly and executed by two professionals.

The field is so wide open that many pundits have the No. 1 seeds (Anaheim Ducks, New York Rangers) losing in the opening round. Ask a group of 10 hockey fans who they think will win it all, and you may get 10 different answers. The Rangers, winners of the 2014-15 President's Trophy, certainly feel pressure to come out on top.

    There are many times during the kickoff coverage that the defender will actually go through the line, unscathed, with nobody to block him. Or, he’ll break through a block and find himself out in the open.  What do you do next? In this special teams drill, we cover this exact scenario!  The defender is going to come down the field at full speed, and once he gets to a specified point, the returner will begin moving up the field, and then angle in for the angle tackle. The purpose of this special teams drill is for the defender to come to balance, always moving forward, while cha…

    In this special teams drill, the blocker is working on turning his shoulders and the coverage player is working on destroying the up field shoulder. One important thing to remember in kick off coverage is that the front line should never make contact with your kick off coverage people. So when you look at this particular drill, you are going to read the up field shoulder. One of the key features to this drill is that you need to have your coverage player stem to the side opposite of where he is eventually going to make move to in order to keep the blocker in position. The blocker turns his…

    Special teams is one of the most commonly ignored, yet vitally important development areas for a youth or high school football team. Coach Jimmy Johnson once stated that teams need to win 2 of 3 phases of the game in order to come out with a “W” – offense, defense, or special teams. In other words, special teams is just as important as offense and defense, and should be treated that way in your game preparation. A good special teams unit requires several team members who are good at blocking after a kickoff or punt in order to allow their returner to gain a large number of yards. Good…

    If you never dreamed of having the type of relationship like Monica and Quincy’s then I don’t know what to tell you! Love and Basketball is 15 years old and it is in fact a timeless film and an African-American classic. The love story that follows two aspiring athletes has its moments of laughs and tears. I remember watching it when I was younger, wanting a relationship like theirs even though I was not even the least bit interested in basketball–sports for that matter. In honor of #TBT, go out and get Love and Basketball or watch it over and over on DVD like I will be…

Photos of Nicki and Beyoncé’s video “Feeling Myself” have sparked positive reviews as the photos reflect friendship, feminism, and embracing oneself with confidence. Beyoncé, wearing a one-piece Derrick Rose swimsuit that all but hides her curvaceous figure, is the epitome of sexy and she makes it a point to embrace herself, exuding self-confidence. Beyoncé is openly a feminist and her actions show just that. Wearing the…

    Although they're best known as a high-powered offensive team, the Golden State Warriors have proven the ability to win in many ways throughout a tremendous season. It's fitting, then, that they clinched the franchise's first NBA Finals appearance in 40 years by topping the Houston Rockets in a rugged, often sloppy 104-90 Game 5 victory to close out the Western Conference Finals on Wednesday night.

    Jeff Eisenberg
    27 May 2015 | 8:51 pm
    The hatred Michigan State coach Tom Izzo already has for Twitter undoubtedly intensified Wednesday as a result of an alcohol-fueled rant by one of his former players. Garrick Sherman, an ex-Spartans big man who later finished his career at Notre Dame, unleashed a memorable series of tweets about his two years in East Lansing. Among the subjects the 6-foot-10 center touched on included his poor relationship with Izzo, rampant marijuana use among his Michigan State teammates and the time he urinated in a condom to help an ex-Spartans wing pass a drug test. At the final four izzo told me “not…

He controlled the speed and tempo of the play during his 28:35 of ice-time. First, check out this absurd 'save' in the third period. Also, just look at this pass to Marian Hossa. If Chicago wins the Stanley Cup, dude deserves some Conn Smythe love. No. 2 Star, Patrick Kane, Chicago Blackhawks Scored a goal and added an assist for Chicago in the win.

    The war of attrition in the Western Conference Final has been a battle of two different types of strengths: Anaheim’s depth versus Chicago’s skill and survivalist instinct.  The Blackhawks are so good in big moments and important games. It’s when they’re at their best. They proved this yet again in Game 6, riding an early 3-0 advantage to vanquish the Ducks 5-2 at United Center and send the series to Game 7 Saturday in Anaheim. Duncan Keith led the charge for the Hawks, controlling the pace of the game, and notching three assists in 28:35 virtuoso minutes and seconds.  "You can…

    Dwight Howard has already gotten the benefit of the doubt from the league office once during these Western Conference finals. If the Houston Rockets are able to once again stave off elimination on Wednesday, he'll need the NBA's disciplinarians to smile upon him one more time to allow him to suit up for Friday's Game 6 back in Houston.

    Last year I watched a show about Olympic parents, and I wondered, would they all be hard-driving parents?  Were they super competitive? What did they do to help their child achieve championship status? Their answers were not really what I’d expected, but they most definitely made me smile. These are the thoughts that their sports parent behavior broadcast loud and clear: You help your child become a champion by being supportive, not pushy. You’ve seen pushy parents, the ones who always speak for their children, demand a lot from their children, and insist on pushing their kids to perform…
  • 5 Ways NOT to Motivate your Athlete

    Motivating your athlete in youth sports  is not an exact science; it’s more like an art form. It’s trial and error — a learning process for parents as much as it is for kids because every child is different and every child responds differently to motivational tactics. But before you start looking for ways to help your child get motivated in sports, consider this: Are you keeping the big picture in mind? If your objective is to help your child work hard so they can learn physical, emotional and mental skills that will stick with him or her for life, then avoid these short-term…

    There’s a lot of hype, misinformation, and unrealistic expectations when it comes to playing sports in college. I did my homework and found the top college recruiting myths that need to be busted. Parents and athletes, take note: Myth #1: High school coaches will get you recruited. Your athlete is the only one responsible for his recruitment. Coaches can help, certainly, and provide guidance, but it is the athlete’s job to market himself. Myth #2: Grades won’t matter if you are a really good athlete. Of course, top athletes will be pursued more vigorously, but most colleges want…

Mills was murdered on April 24 and the uncertainty around Collins' role in the episode caused him to drop from a likely first round pick to an undrafted free agent. Unfortunately, that drop probably cost him somewhere in the area of $5 million in guaranteed money (taking into consideration his contract with the Cowboys).

In fact, they've only advanced to the Stanley Cup finals once, getting swept by the Red Wings in 1998.

    It’s easy to argue that off season training is the most important phase of any football skills and conditioning plan. Not only will it help the athlete to recover physically and psychologically during the season, it will be hugely important to neurological and physical development of any player. 1. Neurologically, off-season training is where you can consistently repeat your basic technique movements (based on your position: backpedal, throwing, catching, etc.) thus developing the groves in your brain that make a skill ‘second nature’. This is where you can master your craft…

    Offensive linemen are a very unique and special group. It is a fraternity to coach and/or play offensive line. We as a whole tend to stand up for and defend each other at all costs even if we do not know the other guy. The only thing we have to know is he is a lineman like me. This is what makes coaching the offensive line so special yet so challenging at the same time.

    There is not question in my mind that we are coming up on a tough time of year for running, walking, and really doing any type of outdoor exercise.  Nashville gets pretty hot and extremely humid, which isn’t fun.  Signing up for a race, even a shorter one, can really help keep me on track during these summer months.  With that in mind, I thought I would share some of my favorite races that are coming up in these next few months.

    Sometimes the morning after a marathon I feel like I have been hit by a bus, everything hurts.

I enjoy doing the marathon here because the sights are familiar. I often see spectators out that I haven’t seen in a while, old friends that just happen to be out there cheering someone else on. I enjoy seeing the local companies that volunteer at the water stops and the local high school cheerleaders out cheering us on. The bottom line is that we really do live in a very cool city.

    Deflategate is turning out to be the NFL’s ongoing soap opera. From air pressure to legal reports to tarnished legacies, the story continues to give us plenty to discuss and a lot to argue. We’ve debated punishments and disagreed on the severity of cheating by the Patriots and Tom Brady. Also, with the majority of fans most upset because they believe they have been lied to, integrity is a key word being brought up throughout this saga. My challenge to all of us today is that if we demand honesty and integrity from our favorite athletes, we should consider living up to the same standard…

    Coach, You will ALWAYS have critics. Stay focused on why you do what you do and on what matters most! When you get defensive, you look guilty, or like you lack confidence in what you do. And maybe you do. Maybe you ARE doubting your own ability. But responding to frustrated critics rarely does you any good or helps you feel better about yourself or what you do. Stay focused on the players, on what you want to help them accomplish/learn, on your mission and vision for any player you have the honor of working with. You’re not out there for the critics! You’re out there for the KIDS.

Too many people get stuck thinking you “can’t” make different choices after you’ve already made one. Or that you “have to stick with it” because you made a particular choice. So many of choices we turn into “forever” choices are not actually forever choices. You CAN make another, different choice if something’s not working! You CAN change your mind.

Love it or hate it, pool play can be tough on players as they don’t often play 4 games in as many days. Both teams looked fatigued on Sunday, but Florida State found a way to play through it.

    One year after signing defensive back Tracy Porter, the Washington Redskins released him, having hardly used the often-injured nickel back they took away from the Oakland Raiders in 2014. The Skins also released OG Chris Chester, whom the team signed from the Baltimore Ravens in 2011. Chester started every game for the Skins from 2011-2014, but his release is not a surprise as his play declined badly from his best season in 2012. In addition, Chester was brought in because the Mike Shanahan regime believed he would excel in a zone blocking scheme, which the team no longer uses. Cutting…

    Here’s the second part of the segment that was started yesterday: the NFL teams report card of how each did in the draft: Miami Dolphins: Grade B+ Miami got their big name wide receiver in Devante Parker, who some see as the best WR in this draft. The pick that really stood out to me was Boise State running back Jay Ajayi, a guy I had as a second round grade drafted in the fifth and can really help the Dolphins run game this season and going forward. Minnesota Vikings: Grade A- The Vikings found value and need throughout the draft; whether it was the top corner in this draft Trae…

    The NFL draft has now passed and it is time to give these teams report cards on how they did. Arizona Cardinals: Grade: B, Cardinals get a B from me as they do nab DJ Humphries the offensive tackle from Florida who has tremendous upside at the tackle position coming out of Florida. But wasn’t really impressed with the other selections as I question second round pick Markus Golden at the next level in terms of lack of true speed rush. Atlanta Falcons: Grade A-, Dan Quinn is looking like a great hire on paper and so is his team’s off season. Every pick in this draft was well thought…

    Within the field of birding, there are many different sub categories and observing birds over long distances in wide open areas like at the coast or near a lake is very different to going birding in a thickly wooded forest. So it is impossible to say that this is the best birding binocular and leave it at that, you need to decide if you need a pair for a specific niche or if you are looking for a good all round birding binocular that will perform well in a variety of different situations.

  • 5 Best Mountain Hunting Rifles

    Mark Griffin
    6 May 2015 | 3:54 am
    Every rifle has its advantages and disadvantages. Some rifles are super light, but not every hunter can shoot them accurately because of the increased recoil. Some great shooting rifles are just too heavy to pack up the mountain. In my experience, a rifle that is light as possible and still allows a hunter to consistently shoot 1 ½ MOA groups is adequate for normal ranges. Not every hunting rifle for 2015 is up for the job, but here are 10 that I would not hesitate to take on an once-in-a-lifetime hunt. Although these selections are made with sheep, goats, mule deer, and elk in mind, no…

    Whether you’re listening to, watching or reading about horse racing, there always seem to be a strong undercurrent of chatter going on regarding lineage and breeding – the process by which one horse is selectively bred with another to produce specific traits in the foal. From the outside looking in, it seems a pretty simple format in that if I have a horse blessed with wonderful stamina but it struggles with speed, then I need to breed it with a quicker horse or a sprinter to produce offspring (or progeny, to give them their official title) with speed and stamina. Of course, the…
  • French Open : Tennis Betting Predictions

    24 May 2015 | 12:10 am
    Tennis’ second Grand Slam, the French Open, starts on Sunday 24th May. It takes place over two weeks on the clay courts of Roland Garros, and is universally accepted to be the toughest two weeks of the season. As it’s a Grand Slam, all matches are best of 5 sets, and the final set cannot be settled with a tie-break; unlike the regular ATP events. The King of Clay, Rafa Nadal, has won 9 of the last 10 French Opens with only victory for Roger Federer in 2009 breaking his stranglehold. Federer has also been runner-up on 4 occasions (Last in 2011), whilst Novak Djokovic was runner-up…

Then, something clicked. He found redemption in a resurgent 2013 season that saw him earn the starting third base job while endearing himself to a fan base that had all but written him off the year before.

It continued a stretch of excellent pitching for the young rookie after making his major league debut. After…

    The U.S. Justice Department says the indictments it handed down Wednesday against soccer officials and sports-marketing executives are just the beginning of its efforts to root out corruption in the sport. A comprehensive investigation might find that the sport’s structure itself makes soccer vulnerable to corruption. FIFA disproportionately favors its smaller states, leaving the most corruptible members with outsize control over the organization.FIFA has 209 member-nations, and each one’s soccer association is equally powerful in the sport’s governing body.

It would be ridiculous to say that. Last week, we released an interactive graphic, “The Complete History of the NBA,” which uses a relatively simple formula called Elo to rate NBA teams. Indeed, it currently ranks this year’s Warriors as the fourth-best team in NBA history, although they may rise or fall depending on how the rest of their playoff run goes. Meanwhile, no…

    The stakes in the NBA are incredibly high. Superstar players so dominate the league that decisions on trades, draft picks and free-agent signings could gut a franchise for years or make it a perennial contender. But unlike in sports like baseball and hockey, where luck plays a larger role, in the NBA, the best team usually wins. There’s little forgiveness when a star player gets hurt, and when a team misses its first chance at a title, it may not get another.We wanted a way to visualize each team’s ups and downs.

  • A Baseball’s Exit Velocity Is Five Parts Hitter, One Part Pitcher

    Rob Arthur
    22 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    For years sabermetrics has theorized that pitchers can’t control what happens after a batter strikes a ball. Whether it bloops in for a hit, rockets its way to an outfielder’s glove or lands just inches outside the foul line, it’s a consequence of the batter and the defense, but not the pitcher. That argument is what led to Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP), a statistic that attempts to quantify a pitcher’s performance only for the events for which we know the pitcher has definite responsibility (walks, strikeouts and home runs — in sabermetrics parlance, the “Three True…

    HOU  vs. GSW (-10)This is probably the highest amount of points I've ever taken on a favorite in the long, storied history of Dirty Picks. Ironically this is also the least high I've ever been while taking such a risk. Though the idea of the Rockets being inspired by the recent tragedy that has affected the Houston area, I don't expect that inspiration to be sustainable. They could very well start this game off hot like they did in game 1 only for Steph Curry to catch fire and absolutely bury Houston. I heard a crazy stat on ESPN somewhere that Steph Curry has had almost half of his…

    ATL +7.5 vs. CLEI think the strongest evidence for taking the points here is what happened last night in the Warriors/Rockets series. The Rockets had been getting their ass kicked the entire series and managed to erupt (thanks in large part to Harden dropping a 40 burger on them) to a surprise game 4 victory. The only difference is that the Rockets were fortunate enough to be at home (albeit a very, wet home) and the Hawks are looking to steal in Cleveland. Also going against the Hawks? LeBron wants to end this series and enjoy 9 days of rest while the West figures out their…

While I don't expect JR to replicate his astonishing game 1 feats, I actually expect a better team performance from the Cavs. Throw in that Demarre Carroll won't be hounding LeBron all night, and you have a recipe for a 2-0 Cavs lead heading back to the mistake by the lake.

    ATL (+1) vs. CLEYou know how LeBron does things. It usually takes him a game to get warmed up and get a good feel for what the other team is trying to do. This is his feel out game. Throw in that the Hawks will be hosting their first ever home game in the Eastern conference finals and you can see why this is a solid points grab. I expect the Cavs to win this series in six games, possibly even five depending on how game 2 goes...but don't be surprised if the Hawks take a game or two early to give the talking heads of the world something to pontificate on over the next few weeks.

  • Can Barry Bonds Sue MLB?

    Colby Rogers
    24 May 2015 | 6:25 am
    Looking at Barry Bonds’ Baseball-Reference page can turn into a black hole of amazing hitting statistics. In 2004, Bonds had an on-base percentage of .609. .609! A game that sees a successful player failing 60-70% of the time had a player that flipped that narrative on its head and succeeded 60% of the time…all at the age of 39. Players hanging on as viable left fielders or designated hitters into their early 40’s is not unheard of. But the age is what brings us to Bonds possibly suing MLB for collusion. After his final year in 2007 where he still hit 28 home runs and had…
  • From Dominant Defense To Explosive Offense: The Pittsburgh Steelers

    Last season, Steelers fans were shocked at the birth of a dynamic offense led by three-year offensive coordinator Todd Haley. When Haley arrived in Pittsburgh it wasn’t clear what direction the team was headed. Talks of Mike Tomlin on the ever-present hot seat surfaced when the Steelers finished with an 8-8 record in back to back years after losing to Green Bay in Super Bowl XLV. But in 2014, things finally fell into place and the offense clicked on every cylinder. Haley’s offense is finally working and the happiest guy in Pittsburgh might just be Mike Tomlin.

They have been stagnant way too long. Just last week, Tulowitzki and his agent met with Rockies’ management to try to figure out where both sides wanted to go.

    The rain dampened the spirits of the fans and play of the Herd as the Bisons fell to Indianapolis 8-4 Monday night.Starting pitcher Randy Wolf got two quick outs to open the game. Then a Steve Lombardozzi single broke things open. The hit was followed by two walks and another single, knocking in two runs. A strikeout stopped the bleeding relatively quickly, but that would not be the end of the Indians’ early offense. In the second inning the visitors struck again with two runs, accompanied by some help from a Buffalo error. Again in the third the Indians tacked on to their lead with four…

  • Royals Drop Four Straight, Swept By Yankees, Lose 4-2

      About a month back, the Royals wanted to fight everyone while having a, “Royals Against the World” type of attitude. Now, they are struggling and no longer in sole possession of first place. When you check the standings though, you’ll see a team that is 28-18 and 6-4 in their last ten games.   Chris Young pitching in Yankee Stadium sounds like a terrible idea. In fact, Guthrie, Vargas, and Blanton, who are all fly ball pitchers, pitching in a stadium that’s 312 and 315 down each line really doesn’t instill confidence at all, yet that’s how it…

      This is the first time the Kansas City Royals have lost three in a row this season, so things could be worse. But for every “It could’ve been worse” that has been said, remember this: It could’ve been a whole lot better. Jason Vargas made his first start off the DL today. He went four innings, allowed two earned runs, and struck out six. For comparison, Jeremy Guthrie has struck out nineteen batters in 48.1 innings. Vargas made one mistake to Mark Teixeira, which was ultimately enough to beat the Royals. Joe Blanton’s three earned runs was the nail in the…

    When your starting pitcher gives up more home runs than he gets outs, you know you’re in for a long day. Jeremy Guthrie gave up three 3-run homers and a 2-run home run before recording an out in the second inning. The fact that the Yankees only scored 14 runs today is unbelievable, considering the Kansas City bullpen threw seven innings in relief today. Really, I’m just going to sum up the 14-run massacre from the Yankees. Here’s how it happened in a sentence: A home run, another home run, hey, the Yankees hit another home run, Guthrie’s final home run, an RBI-double,…

    The 6 Nations final day had been christened “Super Saturday” as any one of 4 out of the 6 teams could theoretically win the Championship. All 3 games were going to be played consecutively too, which could see more swings and roundabouts than in quite a lot of playgrounds, if you added them all together. So, Wales were up against it and so it seemed were the Italian authorities. Italy’s national airline, Alitalia went on strike on Friday, as did the air traffic controllers which meant many people’s flights were either cancelled or rescheduled. The people we were…

Villa’s manager has done an excellent job of galvanising the team from the second city but there is much work ahead if he is to turn them into an effective unit. Line Ups Southampton set up in their usual 4-2-3-1 with Gazzinga between the posts behind an established back four of Clyne, Fonte, Alderweireld and the unsung Ryan Bertrand. Wanyama and Ward-Prowse took their places in the midfield boiler room with Mane and Shane Long given attacking duties…

    23 May 2015 | 6:48 am
    Lewis Hamilton has qualified on pole position for tomorrow’s 2015 Monaco Grand Prix. The British driver has never stated the race from the front of the grid, but will do so tomorrow ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Rain threatened to intervene in the final 12 minute session, but it wasn’t to be, with Hamilton taking pole after Rosberg bailed out of his final run. Hamilton’s performance means that Mercedes have been on pole for the last 4 years in Monaco, with Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg previously qualifying their in 2012, 2013…

    15 May 2015 | 5:30 am
    Saddles are one of the most important components on your bike. You should be able to ride all day without noticing it. If it’s uncomfortable then it’s time to take a look not only at the saddle but its position. Saddles are a personal thing and for most cyclists once they’ve found the right one they tend to stick with it using the same one on all their bikes. It’s also important to put comfort before weight. Price doesn’t come into it, just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean you’ll be comfortable! Finding the right saddle This can be a difficult, most of us have tried a…

    Jason Whitney
    21 May 2015 | 9:46 pm
    Jason Whitney James Harden had an epic Game 2 performance in a loss against the Golden State Warriors Thursday night. The Beard had a crazy state line of 38 points 10 boards and 9 assists that unfortunately wasn’t enough for the Houston Rockets as the Dubs would prevail in a one-point victory. However, Harden had a chance to make that stat line a triple-double and a win for the Rockets had he made a snap pass to a wide open Terrence Jones streaking down the middle of the lane instead of looking him off. WATCH: It’s hard to criticize Harden here, but it seems like he should have…

      “That’s very boring” jeered Arsenal fans to Mourinho’s charges as the two sides shared the spoils a weekend ago. “I think boring is 10 years without a title,” said Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, in his typically sly manner. While it may have been a battle of words between the two sides, the war has seemingly been won by the men in Blue – should they defeat Crystal Palace and clinch their first title since 2010. In truth, Chelsea have been amongst the most entertaining sides in the league, at least according to statistics. Second only to Manchester City, Chelsea have…

      What a difference two games can make in the league. For Chelsea, it was four points, seeing them sit pretty on top of the logs. For Manchester City it was six points from six, ensuring their grip on third place as they chase down the Gunners to finish as runners up. For Manchester United, they came back empty-handed in two outings, eliminating themselves from a late and unlikely push for the title. And for Liverpool, it was but a point; as a consequence, they have virtually surrendered their much-sought after UEFA Champions League for the next season to United. While they may have been…

It was a Herculic task, given the might and heart Porto put in back home. But by half time, they were eons ahead of their Portuguese counterparts, having unleashed a devastating 45 minutes of football to lead 5-0 at home. Any doubts of an impossible task for the German champions was washed wash as they played scintillating football, overturning the seemingly impossible scoreline. “We just witnessed something miraculous,” said…

      Liverpool’s narrative has over the weeks begun taking a different turn; once considered destined to finish out of the European spots, they have gathered momentum over the weeks to slowly but surely stake their claim for a top four finish. Daniel Sturridge’s return from injury may have provided a much-needed psychological boost after a lengthy layoff, after the news of Steven Gerrard’s imminent departure to America caused some invisible damage. But he is not the sole reason for Liverpool’s upturn in fortune – far from it. The revival of Sterling after a string of fatigued…

    Yes, above anything else it takes talent to win in professional sports.  However, if it’s about winning championships, then talent along is not enough.  It takes more.  The Chicago Bulls continue to learn that the hard way year after year. So what is it?  What does a team need almost as much, if not more than pure physical skill to reach the mountaintop.  The Blackhawks know better than any other team in the Windy City.  They have plenty of skill, but it’s their character, resiliency and leadership headlined by Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Duncan Keith that truly makes…

    You don’t expect pitchers to be good hitters, not even average hitters but that being said Chicago Cubs lefty Jon Lester is now the MLB’s all-time worst hitting pitcher. On Friday, he went 0-for-3 during his start against the Arizona Diamondbacks that made Lester 0-for-57 in his career. Lester was tied with Joey Hamilton for the longest hitless streak by a pitcher at the start of his career. In his first at bat during Wednesday night’s game against the Washington Nationals, Lester set a new record for the longest hitless streak to start a career at 58 at bats. Not exactly…

    I’ve already written about the failure of the Kimmo Timonen trade and the repercussions of his presence in the lineup once. While the piece predominately examined the analytic detriments of Timonen’s presence in the Blackhawks defensive rotation, what it failed to do was appropriately take into consideration the moral consequence of the 40-year old’s involvement in the Blackhawks playoff run. As I wrote before: An iron man by the very definition, defenseman Kimmo Timonen defied all odds this season when he suited up for the Chicago Blackhawks a mere six months after…

Balotelli has scored just ONE Premier League goal this term after a controversial £16 million move from AC Milan in 2014.

It is thought that Ancelotti would be keen to speak with the club’s owners, but the four-time European Cup winner is adamant that he will take at least six months off so that he can undergo long overdue back surgery. But Ancelotti’s sabbatical doesn’t necessarily mean he is off the table for FSG. The American owners are keen to be seen to give Rodgers every chance at a fourth season at Anfield, but…

    Soccer News and Rumors: Carlo Ancelotti is not Real Madrid’s coach anymore after he was released from his duties earlier in the week.

As a result, the Whites will have to appoint a new manager soon, and the latest rumors are that Rafa Benitez could be headed to Madrid. It’s a bit hard to say whether he is the man for the job, especially given his work in the last couple of years.

  • The NFL amends the Extra Point Conversion

    Tim Campbell
    19 May 2015 | 6:34 pm
    The NFL has changed to PAT to increase the potential for two point conversions by moving the line of scrimmage for the one point kick back to the 15 yard line while keeping the 2 point try on the 2 yard line. But the biggest difference will be the defenses ability to recover and return turnovers for 2 points of their own. Sometimes it feels like the league is trying just a little too hard to make changes that increase the intrigue and excitement of the game. This could end up being an interesting aspect, especially in those moments late in games that can be decided by one point, or it could…

Clint Hurdle “We told Jordy before the weekend started that he would get it off. We had a plan coming in. We’ll figure it out as we go. I know the dynamic of working with Jung Ho, getting him more playing time. We’ll see where it takes us. They are different defenders. I compare Jung Ho to a Jhonny Peralta type.

Walcott has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, with Liverpool reported to be among the sides interested, and he gave a timely reminder of his quality as the Premier League season came to a close on Sunday.

For example, Sam Farmer in the Los Angeles Times predicted the Chicago Bears would draft WR Amari Cooper; they opted for Kevin White instead.But the bottom of Farmer's list is notable for his inclusion of several players who weren't drafted in the first round at all.

Unfortunately for us Gunners, it’s been a fair while since a number 9 has really made the crowd roar in N7. Since Arsene…

    Sometimes, the brain of the average American sports fan worry me. A recent poll showed that 77 percent of NBA fans believe that Michael Jordan is the greatest player of all-time. That statistic doesn’t bother me, and I’m happy with that figure. But in the same poll, a whopping 34 percent of fans believe that Michael Jordan (at 52 years old) would beat LeBron James at 1-on-1 today. And only 54 percent believe that James would win in the match-up. Look, I’m a huge MJ nut. But I’m also a realist. Although MJ can still play and talk trash against many NBA players today,…

    Going into the playoffs, the NBA had potential of having its most exciting and unpredictable postseason in years. Unfortunately, the conference finals ruined any possible progress the NBA made. A big criticism the NBA has is despite its star power and having the satisfaction of truly having the best team win the title, the road to get to the finals is painfully predictable and boring at times. This year is proving to be no exception to that belief about the NBA. People expected the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors to be the most likely finals match-up led by stars Lebron James…

While it’s an improvement over the old extra point, the NFL is better off getting rid of it altogether. The extra point is one of the most boring things that occurs in the NFL.
