    Fired up for the first NHL playoff game in town in 19 years, Winnipeg Jets fans booed Corey Perry off the ice in warmups and cheered every icing call against the Anaheim Ducks. They went silent when the Ducks scored. The raucous ''whiteout'' crowd left on a somber note when Anaheim's Rickard Rakell scored at 5:12 of overtime to beat the Jets 5-4 Monday night at MTS Centre and take a 3-0 series lead. ''I personally have never had anything like that before, and we certainly fed off the energy,'' Jets winger Lee Stempniak said.

  • Warriors beat Pelicans 97-87 to take 2-0 series lead (Yahoo Sports)

    20 Apr 2015 | 11:00 pm
    Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr likes to say his team teeters on ''explosive and careless'' basketball, pulling off an astonishing play one moment and a perplexing one the next. Klay Thompson scored 26 points, Stephen Curry had 22 points and six assists and the Warriors regrouped from an early deficit to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 97-87 and take a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series. ''It's what makes us who we are.'' The top-seeded Warriors fell behind by 13 points in the first quarter after a strong start by Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon quieted an announced sellout crowd…

With a sarcastic smile here and a timely goal there, the Wild have kept their cool and taken the series lead. Devan Dubnyk made 17 saves, Jason Pominville and Zach Parise scored in the second period and the Wild cruised to a 3-0 victory over the Blues in Game 3 on Monday. ''That stuff after the whistle doesn't win you games, so we're just focused on playing our game and playing it smart.'' Mikael Granlund had two assists, Nino Niederreiter added an empty-netter and the Wild had the edge in every way,…
  • Rangers shut down Penguins 2-1 to reclaim momentum (Yahoo Sports)

    20 Apr 2015 | 9:18 pm
    There is nothing poetic or necessarily pretty about the way the New York Rangers play, particularly on the road. It's a formula that led New York to the league's best record, one they returned to while restoring order in their first-round series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Choking off the passing lanes and the open ice where Penguins' stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin thrive, New York built an early lead behind goals from Carl Hagelin and Chris Kreider then held on for a 2-1 win in Game 3 on Monday night to take a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 is Wednesday in Pittsburgh.

    Jimmy Butler was simply following orders from Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. Butler set a playoff career-high for the second straight game with 31 points, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Milwaukee Bucks 91-82 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series. After scoring 25 points in Game 1, Butler trumped that with another terrific performance. Noah grabbed 19 rebounds and the third-seeded Bulls dominated on the glass 64-48 while taking a commanding lead in the series.

Both players received technical and Pachulia was ejected. Mirotic appeared to pick up an injury during the incident according to the TNT studio crew, which could affect the Bulls down the road.

    Mike Cardillo
    20 Apr 2015 | 7:11 pm Reds manager Bryan Price flipped out at the Cincinnati baseball media on Monday afternoon. The crux of the Price’s beef, per Enquirer beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans, is about information. Price got mad that Rosecrans reported Devin Mesoraco, who is injured, wasn’t with the team. Price argued it shouldn’t be the media’s job to report information such as that, as it would alert opponents. In this instance, that Mesoraco was unavailable to pinch hit. Turns out a little beef between the…
  • Jose Iglesias Showed Off Some Defensive Wizardry to Nail Brett Gardner at First

    Mike Cardillo
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:53 pm
    Your browser does not support iframes. Jose Iglesias is a defensive magician at shortstop for the Detroit Tigers. Monday night against the Yankees he showed off his cannon for a right arm to throw out Brett Gardner at first base. Gardner is pretty fast, making Iglesias’ throw from deep in the hole all the more impressive. Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season due to fractures in his shins. The Tigers won tonight 2-1 to improve to an MLB-best 11-2, proving the old adage it’s much easier to play baseball with a viable Major League shortstop than without.
  • Michelle Beadle is a Vengeful Spurs Fan, In Addition to Making a Better Door Than a Window

    Michelle Beadle is a San Antonio Spurs fan. (I’m not sure if she’s ever mentioned that.) On Sunday, she attended Game 1 between the Clippers and Spurs in Los Angeles. On Monday, I wrote a tongue-in-cheek post about Beadle being an annoying visiting fan obstructing the view of the hometown fans. Looking back, it was not over-the-top enough in its sarcasm, and thus, ineffective to those not familiar with my #brand of humor. At first, I thought Beadle might have gotten the joke and been playing along. Some of her followers clearly didn’t get it. A bunch of random…
  • Fan at Cubs-Pirates Taken Off on Stretcher After Foul Tip Hit Her Head Through Screen [UPDATE]

    The Pirates-Cubs game Monday night was delayed in the top of the second inning for 23 minutes after a fan walking behind the home plate netting was struck by a foul tip off the bat of Starlin Castro. This one is very rough to watch and, fingers crossed, the fan is okay. The ball did not go through the netting, per reports. The fan was taken off on a stretcher, and there is no word official word on her status. We’ll post an update when more information becomes available. This tweet from Cubs beat writer Gordon Wittenmyer is encouraging. Woman hit in head with Castro's foul ball…

    San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers was present for the first day of offseason workouts Monday, April 20, as expected. It is business as usual for Rivers. Footballguys View: Rivers is a true professional, and he's not going to miss workouts just because he may not be playing for the Chargers this year. Rumors continue to swirl about the Chargers shopping their star quarterback so they can move up in the 2015 NFL draft and select Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.
  • Cowboys | Duke Johnson likes Dallas' system

    20 Apr 2015 | 4:39 pm

'In college, we ran the same outside zone scheme,' said Johnson, who also said his familiarization with the scheme means 'I can run it, basically, in my sleep.' Footballguys View: The Cowboys should be in the market for a running back in the 2015 NFL draft. Johnson is a compact back, but he's an explosive playmaker who can make defenders miss in space. We like him as an edge-runner and receiver out of the backfield who could work well in a RBBC. Johnson should be a second-round pick in the…

Footballguys View: Good news for the Chiefs here. Smith is not superstar, but he's a capable starter who should have better talent around him this season. Fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting much from Smith, and he's an uninspiring QB2....a low-end one at that.

    Via Marvel / EW Marvel has really proved they have a good handle on promoting their movies effectively. They harnessed the build up from Iron Man and other films to really push The Avengers into crazy territory, allowing them to slowly burn and get creative for things like Guardians of the Galaxy. It seemed like a hard sell on paper (I was one of those people who called it a gamble), but the whole thing panned out well. It seems they’re hoping the same with Ant-Man, using a bit of creativity to promote the film down under with these ant-sized billboards. I’m not saying that…

Because over the last 20 years, he’s sort of been the quintessential backup quarterback. If you don’t what I’m talking about, consider the old cliche that the backup quarterback is always the most popular player on the team. That’s been true for Holcomb at nearly every stop in his career, if only because he was routinely backing up quarterbacks who ended up being terrible. In 2002, Tim Couch had already…

It probably could have saved everything a lot of grief had that been his reaction to Darren Sharper going in.

Apparently not, which is too bad because Dallas would be, like, the 30th team guilty of tampering just this offseason. We’re still 13 days from the NFL Draft, which means at least one more full week of speculative bullshit. So far, the biggest deal being floated, as it were, is Philip Rivers going to the Titans.

  • New Orleans Pelicans vs. Golden State Warriors: Postgame Grades and Analysis

    20 Apr 2015 | 11:06 pm
    The New Orleans Pelicans refuse to be cowed by the top-seeded Golden State Warriors, and it took a 14-point fourth quarter from Klay Thompson to finally dispatch the pesky Pels 97-87 in Monday's Game 2. The Pelicans soared to the end of the first quarter with a 14-0 run into the final minute, and they continually proved a worthy match for the mighty Warriors. The Warriors shot the lights out in the second quarter and still only led by three at the half. After three quarters, the Dubs found themselves tied at home against the No. 8 seed, and it seemed as if an upset might…

Never say never, but with three away goals from their first leg at Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona look home and hosed. As for who’s going through in the all-Madrid affair between Real and Atletico, your guess is as good as mine.

    Draymond Green made four shots in the Golden State Warriors' 97-87 Game 2 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday. Four. And he absolutely dominated the contest. Thanks partly to Green, partly to Klay Thompson's 14 fourth-quarter points and partly to a vice-like defense that decreased the Pelicans' scoring total in each successive period (from 28 to 24 to 19 to 16), the Dubs pulled out a nip-and-tuck win. It was an ugly affair throughout, played in a style the overmatched Pelicans no doubt preferred. Given the talent disparity, it made perfect sense for New Orleans to muddle up the…

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:44 pm
    After four rain delays and 11 extra laps, Matt Kenseth finally drove to victory lane. It took him nine hours to get there Sunday at a water-logged Bristol Motor Speedway. Kenseth snapped a 51-race losing streak by holding off Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson on one final restart in NASCAR's determined effort to stage a complete race. Kenseth, a seven-race winner in his 2013 debut season with Joe Gibbs Racing, was winless all last year.

The event was stopped after 22 laps for rain, and when drivers were told to return to their cars, Hamlin turned his seat over to Erik Jones. He also felt the best move for Joe Gibbs Racing was to allow Jones, one of their development drivers, to get some seat time.

    Matt Kenseth is just a year younger than Jeff Gordon, who has already said he'll retire at the end of this season. The 43-year-old former champion won't use Gordon's exit as a reason to consider his own future in NASCAR. He's got no plans to get out of the race car anytime soon and hopes his pole-winning run at Bristol Motor Speedway will lead to the end of a 51-race winless streak. I hope I'm fortunate enough to be one of those guys.'' Kenseth, a two-time Daytona 500 winner and the 2003 Cup champion, had a resurgence with his 2013 move to Joe Gibbs Racing.

  • Cubs To Promote Addison Russell

    The Cubs will promote top infield prospect Addison Russell to the Majors, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes. It appears Russell, usually a shortstop, will play second base, where the Cubs have struggled this season. Russell, 21, was the No. 11 overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Athletics. He hit a combined .295/.350/.508 at the Class A+ and Double-A levels in 2014, spending part of the year in the Athletics’ system before they shipped him to Chicago as the key to the Cubs’ side of the Jeff Samardzija trade.

    Already, in late April, there are rumors surrounding Marlins manager Mike Redmond, whose job could be in jeopardy after the team’s 3-10 start. April sounds awfully early in the season to fire a manager, and in fact it is — in the past ten seasons, there have been no manager firings in the month of April. There have been plenty of firings in the first halves of seasons, however. Here’s a look at the nine firings in the past decade that took place before a team had finished 81 games in a season, and a brief glimpse at what happened in the next few years after each dismissal.

Still, the Marlins have enough talent to rebound from their 3-10 start, Frisaro says. Here are more quick notes from the East divisions.

  • Alternative Apparel 2015 Collection

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:52 am
    These days, consumers have started to select brands not by product quality or popularity, but rather by their impact on the environment. This is why Alternative Apparel has made a commitment to developing and manufacturing products in a responsible manner. This includes sustainable fabrics, natural and low-impact, non-toxic dyes, and finishing processes, which consume no chemicals and 60% less water. This is why I am such a fan of Alternative Apparel; while these high standards in manufacturing might not be the cheapest route possible, it definitely makes a difference that is worth the extra…
  • San Clemente Shark Sighting...Again!

    18 Apr 2015 | 6:24 am
    Most people know of San Clemente as a small and peaceful beach city that is home to some of the world's best surfers including Kolohe Andino and many more. It is also home to many famed surf spots including T-Street and Lower Trestles. I grew up surfing in San Clemente and was apart of their junior lifeguard program for many years; without ever seeing a shark. And we did some training exercises that took us pretty far out including pier swims, boat drops and free diving at the West Reef.However, in the past couple weeks, there have been a flurry of confirmed shark sightings. The most recent…

    The Los Angeles Angels and the Oakland A’s face off on Tuesday in Anaheim for game two of their MLB series of AL West teams. The Los Angeles Angels were playing catch up all night on Monday and in the end they came up short losing to the Athletics. Albert Pujols had two hits and Mike Trout and David Freese each had hits as the Angels scored three runs on five hits.

The Colorado Rockies hoped to recoup at home after a tough road trip to Los Angeles but they were out of it by the first inning on Monday as they were shelled by the Padres. Nick Hundley had two hits and Troy Tulowitzki and Justin Morneau each had hits as the Padres scored three runs on nine hits.

    The Blackhawks can take a stranglehold on their series with the Predators on Tuesday as they look to sweep games three and four at the United Center. The Nashville Predators are in deep trouble at the moment as they are not the best road team to begin with and are playing without Shea Weber for the second straight game who didn't travel with the team after sustaining a leg injury in the series opener. The Preds have enjoyed a bounce back season and have once again re-established themselves as a force in the Western Conference but they got a tough draw in having to face off against the Hawks…

    21 Apr 2015 | 12:23 am
    The Flames look to push the Canucks to the brink of elimination as the teams meet up in Calgary for a pivotal game four. The Vancouver Canucks face a must win type game on the road on Tuesday night as they look to even the series with the Calgary Flames and after dropping game three at the Saddledome they could be in big trouble if they go down 3-1. Vancouver hasn't had the most impressive season yet they somehow found ways to win hockey games and while I don't see them as much of a threat beyond the first round they should be able to use their playoff experience to their advantage and get…

    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…

    Noella Schink

    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.

    Starting a business is never an easy task. It takes a lot of intense planning, execution of your strategy and little bit of luck to create the kind of business that you can build your life around. We know that businesses fail at an exceedingly high mark, reported at anywhere from 50-90%.

    When I look back over some of my very first tweets, I gag. I adopted Twitter in March 2009 during the heat of NBA regular season stretch run. As the Dallas Mavericks pre- and post-game show host for TXA21, part of the Dallas/Fort Worth TV networks, I covered the Mavericks like a wet blanket. I didn’t have a strong understanding of Twitter strengths at the time so I would tweet play-by-play. “Dirk 1-legged turn-around fadeaway.” “Parker drives the lane.” “Mavs up 12”. UGH.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Urban Meyer isn't typically someone who misses out on a golden opportunity, especially when it is regarding his football team. Monday, though, when he and the rest of the 2014 College Football Playoff National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes got to spend the day at the White House with President Barack Obama, Meyer was unsuccessful at asking the leader of the free world the question the country is dying to know. Who would he start at quarterback this fall? "No I didn’t," Meyer told the media outside the White House. "I’m going meet with him here again and ask him some…

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Whether it's a panel of his most trusted advisors, the U.S. Congress, or a football team, President Barack Obama knows how to work a room. Obama opened his brief speech Monday with the 2014 college football national champions, the Ohio State Buckeyes, with a few O-H's in the White House. It's not hard to get a room that's pro-Buckeye on your side, as the signature cheer reverberates throughout Ohio Stadium constantly on Saturday afternoons in the fall. The final "I-O" Obama received Monday, though, wasn't exactly the best effort of those in attendance. "That last one…

    Offered by Ohio State a month ago, it didn't take Micah Potter long to get a decision made. He told Eleven Warriors on April 7th, on the heels of a trip to play in Italy for a week, that he'd have to be 100-percent before committing. The Buckeyes had just received a commitment from Lakewood St. Edward center Derek Funderburk, and the Buckeyes are looking at a very small – possibly only two player – class in 2016. "I talked with them during the entire trip," Potter said when he returned from Italy. "(Funderburk's commitment) impacts me a little, but the Buckeyes are still very high on…

    The Atlanta Hawks have been excellent this season.  Predicted to miss the playoffs, this team has set a team record for most wins in the regular season (59) and has a strong fan following as a result of the Hawks' gritty performance. It is a year to remember.  The Hawks value has gone up so much, the new ownership may have to pony up $1 billion to snag the team.   As good as things have been, there are warning signs that suggest that this Hawks team will not get their NBA championship this year.  Thus far the team has displayed a delicate balance in which selfless teamwork…

Even though I’m looking forward to the 2015 WNBA season as a whole, I am not that excited about the Mystics.

  • Don’t Forget About Small Data (Russell Scibetti)
    2 Apr 2015 | 8:50 am
    Tweet Today I’d like to share an article that I wrote for a recent sports business-themed issue of W.P. Carey Magazine that discusses the value of “small data” in sports and in business overall. —– “Big data” and analytics has had a tremendous impact on the business of professional sports in the last decade, but the industry has lagged behind others in adopting customer relationship management and data modeling. Still, sports provides plenty of examples showing that data doesn’t always need to be “big” to be valuable. Smaller data points…

  • Sox Beat O’s and Split Series in Rain Shortened Game

    20 Apr 2015 | 3:02 pm
    The Red Sox have the 11:00am start on Marathon Monday, so players on both teams probably showed up exhausted to the ballpark.  The Sox had Justin Masterson on the mound vs. Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  Not only was it an early start, but it was a rainy, windy, cold day out at the park.  The Sox were able to battle through behind Masterson’s strong start and breeze to the win, after the game was called in the 7th inning due to rain. The Red Sox jumped on the scoreboard in the first inning when Mookie Betts got on with a single, stole second base and then got to third when the ball…
  • Sox Lose Second Straight Game Behind Poor Pitching

    The Red Sox were sold to us this off season as a potent offense with some question marks about who the ace of the rotation would be.  The Sox offense has shown promise, but it has also shown that the pitching rotation has more questions than answers.  Rick Porcello took the mound this afternoon in the game against the O’s and he struggled early and often.  The Sox bats weren’t able to make up for it and the Sox lost their second straight game. Porcello ended up giving up a couple of runs before the Sox bats even had a chance to come to the plate.  Porcello gave up a single to…

Clay Buchholz kept the game scoreless until the 4th inning.  However, he always seemed to be playing with fire.  In the 4th, he got burnt.  Buchholz had runners at 2nd and 3rd and no outs.  Machado hit an RBI…

Bahrain won the confidence with high domestic interest about the project as it gave a future to the next generation of Bahraini racers to experience Formula One races in their own…

  • Sponsored Video – A day in the shoes of a football superstar

    Richard Murray
    1 Apr 2015 | 2:15 am
    Most of you won’t be surprised to see Arsenal chasing the heels of Manchester City to the second spot in the premier league, their tactical awareness and all round team play is what makes them one of ‘the’ teams to watch. They often get compared to both Barcelona and Real Madrid with their seamlessly controlled one touch football. They are a very energetic team and a team that defenders hate playing against. The addition this season of Alexis Sanchez has really made them a team to fear. Footballers are constantly in the limelight on the pitch week in week out, but unless its negative…
  • Will Aljaz Bedene’s appeal be successful?

    Richard Murray
    30 Mar 2015 | 5:04 am
    Slovenian-born Aljaz Bedene has been causing a stir recently on the tennis circuit, in particular, the Davis Cup. The men’s championship tournament, which began officially on March 6, has been the subject of controversy recently for Bedene, particularly where his nationality is concerned. Though he was born in Slovenia, he is recognised as a British native, and has lived officially in the United Kingdom since 2008. On March 26, Bedene was officially granted a British passport, and as such the 25-year-old is now looking to appeal a new rule which has recently been brought into the Davis Cup…

    Now that the dust has finally settled on the 2015 Six Nations Championship, all of the teams involved can switch their attention to the World Cup later in the year, which England will host. For rugby fans in the Northern Hemisphere it may take some time to get over the nail-biting try-fest of a day which concluded the tournament, but players and coaches will need to get back into the swing of things quickly if they are to mount a serious challenge for world glory. As it was, Wales, England and Ireland all had the trophy within their reach at one point during the final Saturday. But, in the…
  • Can The Golden State Warriors Become A New Era Version Of The Old Chicago Bulls?

    Richard Murray
    2 Mar 2015 | 2:09 am
    Right now, the Golden State Warriors are the best team in a loaded Western Conference. They’re looking for their 1st NBA championship since 1975, and the game has certainly changed in the last 40 years. Even since the 1990s when the Chicago Bulls dominated with Michael Jordan, the game is much more perimeter oriented. In a way, Golden State is the standard barer for this new style of play.   The three-point shot was ushered into the NBA in the 1970s, but it really has only taken off in the last 20 years or so. These days, it seems like every team is loaded with players who can shoot…
  • How To Properly Select Horse Feed

    Richard Murray
    25 Feb 2015 | 7:07 am
    When horses live in the wild, they just feed on pastures. In a similar way, horse owners are always recommended to offer just forage that includes hay and pasture. The problem is that this is a diet that will not offer all the nutrients, minerals, vitamins and energy that the horse needs. Horse feed has to be considered and adds to the diet, being 100% necessary for the nutrition plan of any horse. You can choose out of various products and the number of choices is definitely overwhelming. With this in mind, here are some facts that will help you choose properly. According to…

  • The Nemesis In The Goal

    Jack Bowen
    15 Apr 2015 | 6:26 am
    I despised him, and him me, or so we thought. He was a nemesis without my ever defining him as such. All because of a game. And yet, given a few years and unique circumstances, he became a dear friend, even standing next to me years later at my wedding. All because of that same game. I attended Stanford, recruited as a water polo goalie. Sean Nolan was a year ahead of me, at UC Berkeley, also a recruited goalie. Upon arriving to campus, Stanford and Cal freshmen are indoctrinated with the meme informing them of their mutual dislike—one of those evolutionary vestiges of us versus other.

The Warriors protected their home court in the first two games of their series against the Pelicans and will travel to New Orleans with a 2-0 lead following a 97-87 win in Game 2. The Pelicans fared better than many expected against the best team in the league but couldn't get the win they needed to increase their chances of advancing.

The Pelicans gave the Warriors a game of it in Oakland, but Golden State was too good in the fourth and took a 2-0 series lead. Anthony Davis' playoff debut went quite well, all things considered. A win would have been nice, but there's a reason the Warriors are the No. 1 seed. They're really hard to beat (expert analysis there, right?), especially at home, where they've lost just two games all year. And yet, in Game 1, Davis was nearly able to…

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. New York lost in the Final last spring to the Los Angeles Kings, and have…

  • Defensive Back Corner Zone Reaction Drill

    12 Apr 2015 | 8:57 pm
    Once we’ve taught our corners and our safetys a zone flip, in other words, how to transition their hips, open and run and keeping a receiver on the outside, we can take it one step further by making our zone defender in deep third coverage defend two players in their zone with this awesome defensive back reaction drill. Defensive Back Corner Zone Reaction Drill For corners, we like to define a one third field zone as being from the sideline to the hash mark (using the high school hashes).

  • Zone Flip Technique for the Defensive Back

    5 Apr 2015 | 7:43 pm
    The focus of the zone flip technique is to take away the inside release simply by moving your alignment in 2 yards. Zone flip means the defensive back will turn the rear of his body to the sideline, and his eyes to the inside so he can watch the receiver and the quarterback. Zone Flip Technique for the Defensive Back This is one simple zone technique that we incorporate which is similar to a cover 3 technique or a corners coverage technique. This is a very good zone coverage concept. Many time when we are playing zone, we want our corners to line approximately 2 yards inside the receiver, 6…
  • Quarterback Fundamentals: Decision Making & The Decision Drill Run

    29 Mar 2015 | 9:41 am
    An important phase in the development of a quarterback is the decision making process. Too many times, coaches fail to incorporate decision making drills into their practice plan, and they expect a player to go out into a football game and react to situations that he may never have seen. Anytime you can set up a decision making process for your quarterback in practice, it will help your quarterback grow to be a better player. There are 2 phases where you can do this – a decision making drill on the run and a decision making drill on the pass. In today’s video blog post, we are…

So the quarterback has to make sure that there is always ball security. VIDEO TUTORIAL: “Hold…
  • Open Shoulder Ball Carrying Drill for Quarterbacks

    14 Mar 2015 | 8:39 pm
    This drill teaches a quarterback where to position the football as he’s dropping back to set up for a pass. This technique is used on drop back passes, play action passes and quarterback draws. So a quarterback has to have the ability to put the ball where it’s secure as he drops back for the pass. Open Shoulder Ball Carrying Drill for Quarterbacks We call this the “open shoulder” because his open shoulder will be facing to the right (for a right handed quarterback – for a left handed quarterback, it will be the left shoulder that is open). The quarterback will drop back…

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…

But what you may not know about Stephen Curry is that his story — from a small, skinny kid that no major school wanted to recruit, to arguably the best player in the game — is a CoachUp success story, and one that was formed even before our company existed.

    When I signed my first child up for gymnastics and then later for softball, I entered a whole new world. Youth sports is its own unique culture, and I had certainly had no idea what I was getting into. I figured it couldn’t be very hard to stand on the sidelines or sit in the bleachers cheering for your kid. But I soon learned that being your child’s cheerleader is not the hard part; it’s the stuff that surrounds the game that gets sticky. If you are new sports parents, or even just beginners, I want to warn you of what will most likely be ahead for you: You will see bad parenting I’m…

    Earlier this week I listed my choices for Augusta and I had twenty-one year old Jordan Spieth at the top. After 36 holes, he holds a commanding five shot lead heading into the weekend after shooting a record 130 for the first two rounds. But if history tells us anything, it's that the tournament hasn't even started yet. In fact, the saying is that it doesn't begin until the back nine on Sunday and it remains to be seen what kind of drama we'll see tomorrow afternoon. Will someone put up a low score and challenge Spieth? Can the young phenom keep his foot on the gas and break Tiger Woods' 72…

    With Tiger Woods' announcement that he would play in the 2015 Masters tournament, the great event took on even more of a buzz than usual. Despite being off the tour for much of last season and almost all of the current one, his presence will be widely publicized, despite the fact that he has almost no chance to contend. Unless Woods has sharpened his short game from the disaster we witnessed in January and February, I think it will be difficult for him to even make the cut. But Augusta is a unique place that requires a lot of experience, generally producing an inordinate number of players who…

    Although a Duke - Wisconsin final in the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament could be viewed as an upset, it's difficult to characterize it as such when you end up with two number one seeds battling it out for the championship. Duke was impressive in an overwhelming defeat of overachieving Michigan State, while Wisconsin avenged last year's Final Four defeat to Kentucky by finally doing something no one else had done this season: Outplay the previously undefeated Wildcats down the stretch. In what turned out to be every bit as good a game as we expected, the Badgers turned a couple of breaks,…

    It's not often that the Final Four takes second stage, or at least shares the limelight. But when the most dominant athlete of a generation announces his intention to return to action at the golf's premier event, there's little surprise that Tiger Woods' proclamation that he intends to play in next week's Master's tournament attracted a lot of attention. It just speaks to his appeal that almost seven years removed from his last major championship that he garners that kind of exposure from the media during a high weekend event such as the NCAA basketball championship.The real story, however is…

    Tiger Back at Augusta? There are significant rumblings that four time Master's champ Tiger Woods might have his game in good enough shape to play next week at Augusta. Judging from his performances earlier in the season, he better have made serious improvements to have a chance to contend in a tournament he hasn't won in ten years. When Woods walked off with the 2008 U.S. Open trophy, it would have been almost impossible to believe that it would be his last major championship to date. At that time, Jack Nicklaus' 18 major victories appeared destined to be surpassed by the then 32 year old…

The following video shows a day in the life of Arlington Martin football coach Bob Wager, who spends 90 hours a week on the job.   A classic line in the video is, “I’d rather work 90 hours a week in a job that I love, than 40 hours a week in a job that I hate.”  (Video below by Jared Chrisopher/Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
  • Building Unity Among Offensive Linemen

    Ty Palmer
    21 Mar 2015 | 1:28 am
    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 are not many kids in the backyards and parks of America that dream of being a center on 4th and 1 in a state championship game and getting a pancake block that keeps the drive alive. If you find that kid, please call me…

    Open water swimming has grown in popularity in recent years. For novices to the sport, it can be an exhilarating experience to become immersed outside of a swimming pool environment. Remember that training is the key to any endurance event and, when it comes to open water racing, careful preparation should never be far from your mind. 1.

    Taking a few laps in a pool is a wonderful way for pregnant women to exercise and stay in shape and it’s generally considered a very safe thing to do. However, before taking the plunge, do check with your doctor so that you are given the green light. If you have been swimming regularly before you became pregnant, it’s perfectly fine to continue. If you did not swim or exercise before knowing you were carrying a baby, you should take it easy at first and start slowly. It’s always best to stretch before swimming and to do a few warm up laps before giving it your all. Studies…

    Swim lane rage is the swimmer’s equivalent of road rage, generally occurring when someone is blocked off or held up in their lane by a slower swimmer, or a swimmer who is not following the correct pool etiquette. Obviously, for the vast majority of people, the avoidance of arguments is a general aim in life, but there are several other reasons to try to avoid incidents of swim lane rage. When training seriously for swimming competitions, such incidents of rage can be extremely stressful, generating tension within the body. This tension can then hinder a person’s swimming technique…

    (Photo by Bruce Bennett/Getty Images)   After coming off a big Game Two win versus the New York Islanders at the Verizon Center, the Capitals traveled to Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, only to play a dud of a game. It took Washington 7:52 to get one shot on goal. At that point, New York already had 10. To make matters worse, Capitals center Eric Fehr left the game with an upper body injury early in the first period. He did not return. After the first 20 minutes of play, goaltender Braden Holtby shined as his team was outshot 16-5. Holtby did not play in Game Two Friday night having…

On the other hand, Exeter are in a fight for a playoff spot and are fifth in the table. Their recent 25-18 defeat to Leicester Tigers saw them drop out of the top four and they will be looking to bounce back at the first attempt against the current league leaders. We preview the upcoming game and give our thoughts on who will win what is set…

  • How to Become a Good Basketball Player

    Sport Eight
    17 Mar 2014 | 12:22 pm
    It is true that some of basketball players seem to have an innate talent for this type of game: they have the ideal height and the right skills that allow playing basketball apparently without paying too much effort into this. It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

    20 Apr 2015 | 7:43 am
    There is much debate on the blogosphere about whether Syracuse should restore #44.  Many folks think it should be restored for recruiting, while others advocate giving it to a deserving running back upperclassman.  And then there are others who agree with the decision to retire the number entirely, further noting that high-prestige recruits that might have worn the number and failed miserably.  The Confidential proposes a different system, such as that used by Ole Miss with its Chucky Mullins Courage Award.  Each year, Ole Miss awards #38 to a deserving player: The award, sponsored by Phi…

    There has been a lot of chatter over the past few weeks about the grass roots efforts by Syracuse fans to “Restore 44” with the hope that a new AD may turn around what they view as the terrible decision to retire the famous jersey number. Growing-up in Syracuse during the 80’s and 90’s, the son (and grandson) of die-hard Syracuse fans, I have a deep understanding and appreciation for what Jim Brown, Ernie Davis, and Floyd Little did for the football program, and in the case of Brown and Davis, what they did to advance Civil Rights in this country.

    Lions could saved a lot of trouble if they would’ve just signed D.J. Humphries out of High School and sent him to Double-A. (Photo: Army Recruiting) If you ever needed evidence that Mock Drafts are worthless, I have it. You don’t need to look at last year, when in all of the three months leading up to the draft exactly one expert had the Lions taking Eric Ebron, and he switched his pick two weeks later. All you need is the time period from March 18 to now. We’re less than two weeks away from the draft. The picture should be clear. Or at least clearer. There should be a…
  • Would a first-round playoff loss signify the end of a run for the Red Wings?

    15 Apr 2015 | 9:54 am
    (Nicole Yeary) Last year the Red Wings had an excuse. They were injured all year. Success became keeping the playoff streak alive. Everyone knew the Bruins were bigger and better. Fans’ hope for a series win rested solely on reputation: the Red Wings tend to win playoff series. Losing to Boston brought no surprise. The year before, the Red Wings won a playoff series, then lost to the eventual Stanley Cup champions. Well they choked it away. Up 3-1 in the series, Detroit let Chicago force a Game 7, and then allowed a Brent Seabrook overtime goal to win it. Detroit had a Cup run in them,…
  • Breaking down the Red Wings’ eighth segment: Detroit showing signs of improvement at right time

    13 Apr 2015 | 1:39 pm
    (Adam Glanzman) Red Wings fans have panicked for the last two and a half months. They had their reasons. Detroit went from fighting for home ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs to fighting to get into the playoffs, and all those battles came just months after the Red Wings were one of the top three teams in the league. The playoffs are here now. Detroit is in. But wide-eyed hope morphed into closed-eyed wincing. The Red Wings haven’t been good for three months. In their last 11 games of the season they posted a 4-4-3 record, good for 11 points. That’s the same pace…

They came from Virginia and Venezuela, Tennessee and Cuba. How did this collection of human beings find themselves together? Some arrived via trade, others came through free agency. Still others were drafted or signed out of their home countries. Most roster spots opened relatively recently, but others find themselves on the Tigers roster due to a series of events almost 20 years in the making. Last year…

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:33 am
    I first experienced Fall Brewing Company’s beer at Barrel Republic, a self-serve beer bar in San Diego, during a Valentine’s Day chocolate and beer pairing. The beer that I had there was the 2 a.m. bike ride, a sessionable coffee stout, which ended up making for the best pairing out of over a dozen beers that I tried. It was only a matter of time until I traveled the 10 minutes or so from my apartment to check out their brewery in North Park, a trendy, up-and-coming neighborhood in San Diego which is increasingly pumping out great beer, great food, and great places to serve it.

    La Sirène Brewing is pretty unique with a focus on classic Belgian and French Farmhouse styles ales, based in Melbourne Australia. When I think of Australian beer I foolishly think Foster’s, not “small batches of unfiltered and unpasteurised beer, retaining the greatest amount of flavour and character…our bottled beers are naturally conditioned by refermentation and extended maturation in the bottle.” I’ve never been to Australia or had any Australian craft beer, so I can’t speak to the quality of La Sirène’s brews.

We are the world’s best beerclub and our homebrewers are what make us different. They have dedicated years to their craft, and our goal is to showcase their pursuit and tell their story. To do that we share high quality, single-release beers inspired by our homebrewers’ very best recipes. You won’t find…

  • Eric Fehr to miss at least the next two games

    Mark Buterbaugh
    20 Apr 2015 | 12:37 pm
    Washington Capitals forward Eric Fehr will be out at least the next two games due to an upper body injury sustained yesterday after a Kyle Okposo hit.  Okposo injured Fehr’s left shoulder just 4 minutes into the opening period in yesterdays 2-1 overtime loss.  The Caps trail the New York Islanders 2-1 in the first round Stanley Cup playoff series. Replacing Fehr in the lineup may be rookie Andre Burakovsky.  Nothing is definitive yet, but Burakovsky appears to be the logical choice.  The 20 year-old rookie has scored 9 goals and added 13 assists over 53 games during his rookie…

    Voluntary workouts begin today and this week at Redskins Park, so expect to see players streaming into the team complex so the coaching staff can get a look at them. The truth is, however, that the strength and conditioning coaches are the most important coaches on the team at this time of the year. That’s because during the first two weeks of the offseason program, players are limited to strength and conditioning work. Helmets are not to be worn and position coaches aren’t permitted to be on the field. However, coaches can meet with the players off the field. The players are not…

    Earlier today, Dallas Cowboy QB Tony Romo restructured his contract and freed up nearly 13 million in cap space for the Cowboys. This move looks odd if you think Dallas is done in free agency for a couple reasons: First, Dallas had this restructure option available during the Demarco Murray contract talks and didn’t do it. Second, with most major free agents gone, Dallas couldn’t spend the cap space available – and with Romo’s deal now back loaded it seems there window is a win now mode. All of this is odd unless you consider the following Minnesota running back Adrian…

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…

    The Nemesis In The Goal – I despised him, and him me, or so we thought. He was a nemesis without my ever defining him as such. All because of a game. And yet, given a few years and unique circumstances, he became a dear friend, even standing next to me years later at my wedding. All because of that same game.

    Two of the most popular sighing mechanism for weapons include the holographic sights and red dot sights. In this regard, Eotech and Aimpoint are often pitted against each other. Although Eotech holographic sights are more but Eotech red dot sights are not uncommon either. As far as the differences between the two are not readily identifiable by just a simple side by side inspection and comparison.Here are some of the factors on which these two can be compared. LED Reticle When it comes to red dot sights, the low powered LED produces the reticle. On the other hand, the holographic sights use a…

    The bird fests have already begun and many people are actually looking for a pair of binoculars that are specially designed for the bird watchers. It is understandable that while identifying and watching the birds, birders require a good binocular. Beyond this, they also need patience, passion and the capability to maintain a large mental catalog. The birding binoculars have a nest of features and specifications. But one of the main features is their ability to gather light. This is important as it allows you to observe the birds even at low light conditions. If you are keen to observe the…

    Kimber’s Mountain Line rifles have made quite an impressive impact on the users. The reviews have been positive from all quarters. As a part of the tactical gear for mountains the weight of the mountain line rifles are perfect. For those who will be carrying it as a hunting gear, the performance is powerful too. However, there are various models in this line. Kimber Adirondack .308 The new Kimber Adirondack rifle weighs about 4 pounds, 13 ounces, and carries an 18-inch barrel, which makes it fast and easily maneuvered in a stand or when still-hunting thick cover. The Adirondack is offered…

    Since 1911, Kimber Manufacturing has been known for their outstanding rifles. The brand produces exceptional high quality hunting rifles. In the recent years, Kimber has come up with Adirondack and Mountain Ascent. Both are perfect for mountain hunters. If you are unaware of it, Kimber has an exclusive Mountain line. These two rifles are impressive additions to this line. Hunting on the planes and mountains are quite different. In the mountain regions, the conditions are tougher to deal with and weight is a huge issue. The mountain line rifles are designed keeping this factor in mind. In…

Yes folks, it is actually quite difficult to announce a clear winner between these two binos. However, binoculars are personal choices. After all, no two eyes or hands are the same. When it comes to the Zeiss optics, they are considered the best as far as image quality is concerned. It is German company that has been producing the sports optics for several years. While we compare Victory HT and Swarovski EL, it is interesting to note that even the previous generation…

    After months of speculation and anticipation, the springtime horse racing season kicked off in style with the 2015 Cheltenham Festival. Then, with the dust settling on this paramount event, all punting eyes turned to the Grand National. The showcase event is undoubtedly the biggest on the National Hunt’s calendar. Horse racing betting odds were already being examined, debated and weighed up across the country by both regular punters and casual bettors alike. Of course, picking a Grand National winner has never been an exact science. But when has horse race betting ever been…

    The Championship is a notoriously difficult division to get out of, with the competitive nature of life just one rung down from the Premier League Promised Land ensuring that little quarter is given on a level playing field. This season has taken the scramble for top-flight football to another level as the leading pack having bunched tightly together. It has been like this for some months now, with it only recently that a select group of hopefuls has emerged. With just two games remaining in the 2014/15 campaign, eight must now go into six, while four must be squeezed into two as the…

    The Bet365 Jumps Finale on Saturday 25th April brings the traditional National Hunt season to a close, but this year’s card will also witness the swansong of 20 times champion jockey AP McCoy. McCoy will be hoping to end his career on a high by adding to his successes in the day’s two major races, the Bet365 Gold Cup and the Celebration Chase, which he was won twice and three-times respectively. Bearing in that in mind, we’ve decided to take a look at the statistics of the two big races, and whether McCoy’s potential mounts fit those statistics. Bet365 Gold Cup McCoy won his first…

However, the fact he’s slightly odds against highlights that he’s not quite returned from injury as good as he was. He could still win here, as he only found Djokovic too good last week in Monte Carlo, but he has a tough looking draw and may be fatigued even if makes it to the final. The player best placed to take advantage of Nadal’s tough half of the draw is reigning champ Kei Nishikori and the Japanese player is fancied…
  • Horse Racing Tips – Scottish National Preview

    18 Apr 2015 | 12:38 am
    The most noticeable statistic about the Scottish National is the weight carrying bias of the winners over the last decade. One winner carried 11-3, one winner carried 10-9, but the other eight winners all carried 10-4 or less. Of course statistics are prone to change but, that’s strong enough for me to narrow my search to fit that criteria, and therefore discard the top 15 runners on those grounds. That leaves us with 16 runners, but I’m happy to narrow those down to just 5 runners who I think have excellent chances. Catching On 16/1 Went off just 5/2 for the Midlands Grand National but…

Bryant may have to share the spotlight in Chicago, because the White Sox have just promoted LHP Carlos Rodon, the third overall pick in the 2014 MLB draft.

Using the latest (postseason-optimized) version of FiveThirtyEight’s NBA Power Ratings, we simulated the playoff bracket 10,000 times, counting how often each team won its first-round series (as well as tracking which teams won the NBA title most often).

  • The Rays’ Radical Reliever Experiment

    Rob Arthur
    17 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    It’s not easy to be the Tampa Bay Rays these days. Long renowned as a sabermetrically-advanced team, the Rays have seen their strategies copied, imitated and stolen by other teams in search of a tactical edge. That’s why I’m watching the Rays closely this season. One of the most intriguing storylines of the 2015 season is how the Rays and other small-market teams cope with a league that’s increasingly analytics-savvy. It used to be that sabermetrics were the way small-market teams gained an edge over the competition. But now that analytics is becoming second nature in nearly every…
  • The Red Sox Are On The Wildest Roller-Coaster Ride In Modern MLB History

    Neil Paine
    16 Apr 2015 | 5:39 am
    Before the 2015 season started last week, the Boston Red Sox were projected by both Fangraphs and Baseball Prospectus to win nearly 90 games this season, with the best expected record in the American League East according to each method.At a glance, that wasn’t incredibly notable. After all, Boston had won 90 or more games in 11 of the 17 seasons leading up to 2015. But the Red Sox are coming off a 91-loss, last-place season that ranked as one of the worst in franchise history. Since Major League Baseball expanded its schedule to 162 games in 1962, only 18 teams have transitioned from…

Over the past month, we forecast every NCAA college basketball game for the women’s and men’s tournaments, updating our numbers almost a hundred times as 132 teams were pared down to two champions.So let’s relive the NCAA tournament not through “One Shining Moment” but through a vetting of FiveThirtyEight’s forecasts.MEN’SOne way to assess our accuracy is to pit ourselves against Vegas, the gold standard of sports predictions.

  • Spring Training Matters

    Rob Arthur
    10 Apr 2015 | 4:37 am
    On opening day, every team has playoff dreams. Early on, the potential of the season outweighs our knowledge of each team’s quality. While our best predictions are modestly useful, they can’t tell us which team is destined for greatness with much certainty or which early-season trends to trust or disregard. That makes it tough for a baseball columnist — a pitiable lot, us — to write about anything with any certainty.But we do have spring training. Conventional wisdom holds that what happens in March is meaningless. But conventional wisdom can’t use R. Spring training results…

    MIL (+8) vs. CHIThe Bucks coming in to this series were being thrown around as a possible dark horse to pull of the upset mostly because The Greek Freak is so much damn fun to watch. Then they tipped off and D Rose turned in a performance that absolutely has to torture Bulls fans, not because he was so great, but because they know eventually he is going to get hurt again. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news Bulls fans, but that angst starts tonight as the Bucks turn in a solid performance and keep this one close enough to lose by five in the end.NO (+12.5) @ GSThis line looks…

    Most people assumed that the Western Conference Playoff teams were set at the beginning of the year. There could be some mild changes to the seeding, but the eight teams would be the same. However, with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s injuries and some mid-season lulls for several teams, the playoffs became a grab bag at the end of the season. Teams were flipping from fifth and sixth to second and third constantly over the last week of the season. In the end, one of the most consistent, yet disliked teams, the Los Angeles Clippers took the third seed. Unfortunately for Chris Paul and Blake…

    19 Apr 2015 | 8:38 am
    Most surprising vs. Most disappointing? I don’t think you can dispute that the Atlanta Hawks were the most surprising team of the 2014-15 regular season. Going from sub-.500 and barely making the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference, to winning over 70% of your games against the Western Conference (22 out of 30) in route to the club’s first ever 60-win season is quite the turn around. For the Brooklyn Nets, you could argue that Brook Lopez’s injury led to a sub-par performance for a majority of the year and therefore their record is not a true reflection of their success. However, I…

I hear you can watch these on NBA rewind. Don’t expect to see the same thing this postseason.

    A few months ago, if you had told me that we were going to have a Memphis Grizzlies and Portland Trail Blazers matchup in the first round of the playoffs, I would’ve been beyond ecstatic. Both teams seemed to have a great chance at ending up the number two seed in the West, and through midseason trades, only seemed to get stronger. Then, as fate would have it, injuries struck. Memphis found themselves beat up enough to fall down in the standings a bit, and Portland appeared to lose LaMarcus Aldridge for the season. Fortunately for them, like some kind of sick Superman, Aldridge was able…

    In the first round of the 2007 playoffs, a plucky Golden State bunch beat the top seeded, 67-15, Dallas Mavericks in six games to eliminate them. This time around the Warriors find themselves playing the role of the Goliath instead. The records for the top seeds are the same, but the similarities between the 2007 series and the current one end there. Although an upset is extremely unlikely to happen, the Warriors would be wise to remember their own history. This year’s Warriors are an absolute juggernaut in every sense of the word. They lead the league in points scored (110) and possess a…

    14 Apr 2015 | 12:34 pm
    Ted Nolan was set up for failure, no doubt about it. As soon as the morality of losing to get better was disputed to no end, the Nolan situation comes up. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and here is mine: do you think it ever crossed Nolan’s mind that he was signing the dotted line to coach a team that was going to—for a lack of better words—suck? From the very beginning it was his decision to coach the team and I honestly can’t think of any coach that could have turned this team around. The writing was on the walls well before he got fired and I'm sure that he was well…
  • The Results Are In: Connor McDavid Or Jack Eichel To The Buffalo Sabres?

    Kevin Siskar
    14 Apr 2015 | 9:30 am
    Last week the Buffalo Sabres locked in either the first or second draft pick by finishing last in the NHL, thus guaranteeing the Buffalo Sabres draft either Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel. Which meant instead of continuing to refer to the two players as one "McEichel" it was time to make a choice as to which player the fans actually want. So we asked you and this is what the votes showed. The winner is:  Connor McDavid Connor McDavid - 77.2%Jack Eichel - 19.3%Noah Hanifin - 0.9%Dylan Strome - 0.9%Lawson Crouse - 0.9%So there you have it. Not much of…
  • Calling Out Bobby Hurley: Why Leaving Buffalo was a Mistake

    Douglas Hannon
    12 Apr 2015 | 6:08 am
    Since current UB Athletic Director Danny White took over the program in 2013, the one thing he hasn’t lacked is ambition.  Aside from his controversial New York Bulls initiative, the signature evidence of this was his hiring of the big-name but little proven Bobby Hurley as the coach to take over for long time UB Basketball coach Reggie Witherspoon.  Hurley was a great player, but had never held a head coaching position, so the move wasn’t without risk.  Fortunately for all involved, the gamble paid off and UB enjoyed 2 excellent seasons, winning the MAC East in his first…

  • Calm, Cool, and Collected: Royals Take Game One, 7-1 Over Minnesota

    Sarah Davis
    20 Apr 2015 | 8:49 pm
    After a heated (to say the least) weekend series with the Oakland A’s, Kansas City looks for a more even-keeled match against their division foes, the Minnesota Twins. Though the score was lopsided, there were no bench clearing incidents, so we can consider that a step in the right direction.   Behind the brilliancy of Edinson Volquez, the Royals were able to take game one from the Twins, just like the last series. His first time facing Minnesota, Volquez threw 7.2 innings, allowed three earned runs, and whiffed seven batters. This time out against Twins was even better as he threw…

  • A new rivalry brews in pretty much the most eventful & exciting April series one can ask for

    This weekend’s series vs. the Oakland A’s was something, eh? What was supposed to be the bittersweet return of Billy Butler to Kansas City, became an ugly, hate fueled series in the top of the seventh inning of the opening game Friday night. With the score tied at 4 after a Stephen Vogt’s second home run off of starter Jeremy Guthrie (the third solo shot of the night against J-Guts), Kelvin Herrera enters the game to face A’s third baseman, Brett Lawrie. Lawrie hits the first pitch he sees, singling to right field. The next batter, Josh Reddick then hits a 3-1 pitch…

Not because of anything that happened last season, but because of some mal-intent that went on during the first game of this series. Also making headlines this week: Kris Bryant.

    Aston Villa beat Liverpool 2-1 to reach the FA Cup final since 2000. Philippe Coutinho gave the Reds the lead on the half hour mark before Christian Benteke equalised six minutes later. Fabian Delph continued his fine form, scoring the winning goal nine minutes into the second half to make it three seasons without a trophy for Brendan Rodgers’ men. The result means that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard won’t get to compete in the FA Cup final, what would have been his last game before moving to the MLS.

Spanish giants Barcelona overcame the threat of French champions Paris Saint-Germain last time out, winning by a 3-1 margin; but their two goal aggregate lead is boosted by a return to home soil for the second-leg tomorrow night.

The Bavarian outfit were red-hot favourites going into that game but they were caught cold by the Portuguese outfit, with a master-class from Ricardo Quaresma and Jackson Martinez securing a memorable win for Julen Lopetegui’s men. The Germans did secure an away goal through Thiago Alcantara, meaning that a 2-0 win tomorrow night would see them through to the semi-finals, but if not the Portuguese…

    Greg Oden. Kevin Durant. Brandan Wright. Thaddeus Young. Those four players and numerous other high school seniors from the 2006 class could easily have swapped their college textbooks for wads of NBA cash if the league did not make a change to their eligibility requirements prior to the 2006 NBA Draft. Either Oden or Durant probably would have been selected by the Toronto Raptors with the No. 1 overall pick in that year’s draft.

Formations Chelsea nominally began with their usual 4-2-3-1 but this was a formation set up to spoil and frustrate. Kurt Zouma was brought into the lineup as a midfield anchorman alongside the towering Nemanja Matic. Behind him were Chelsea’s usual back four and ahead were the impish triumvirate of Hazard, Fabregas and Oscar with old war horse Didier Drogba leading the line. United have improved greatly of late but the injury to Michael Carrick threw a huge…
  • “Anti Football” : Manchester United fans blast Chelsea and José Mourinho

    Editorial Team
    18 Apr 2015 | 12:26 pm
    Eden Hazard’s first half goal was all the difference between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The result means that Chelsea are now 10 points clear at the top of the league with just five games to go which almost certainly seals their status as the new League Champions. However, some section of the fans were less than impressed with Mourinho’s approach to this match however with the Blues playing in their own half for most of the match and managed just 29% of possession. Here are some of the best tweets from the United fans who didn’t mince words…
  • Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview and Prediction

    Matthew Henderson
    17 Apr 2015 | 3:10 am
    As far as big games come, this has developed season by season into one of the biggest around. And this season above all recent, the fixture has paled more into significance. Chelsea are chasing the Premier League title and three points at The Bridge could well cement the crown. Manchester United are looking to cement a top 4 place, and fans are dreaming (wildly I will admit) of a last ditch title push – though that being reality is highly unlikely. As Saturday evening approaches, here are 5 things to look out for come 17:30. The Battle Of The Keepers Facing each other are arguably the…
  • Premier League Predictions Week 33

    Nick Parr
    16 Apr 2015 | 1:25 pm
    The FA Cup Semi Finals this weekend mean that we have an incomplete round of Premier League fixtures this weekend, with just seven games. Aston Villa and QPR played their game last week, whilst Arsenal and Liverpool will both have a game in hand following this weekend. Nevertheless, I will sift through the games that there are this weekend as I give my predictions for week 33 of the Premier League. Crystal Palace vs West Bromwich Albion Palace come into this game on the back of some fantastic results, which sees them in third place of the form table for the last six matches. Alan Pardew has…
  • Can Manchester City continue their evolution?

    16 Apr 2015 | 1:26 am
    The Light Blues have short cut their way to the top table of club football. After revolution comes evolution and now they face the challenge and the realities of FFP. A look at Chelsea’s development possibly offers some clues as to where they go next. Manchester City’s story has been a fascinating one. Clubs that have used new found funds to catapult themselves to success are typically disliked, despised even. Such however has been the life of a City fan sat so long in the shadows of their neighbours in red that it was hard to begrudge them their moment in the sun, theirs had been a very…

  • I Guess I’ll Start Smoking

    I used to be what you would call a chain smoker. I genuinely enjoyed the act of smoking. I didn’t (and still don’t) feel “normal” unless I have some form of nicotine in my system. As I continued smoking my breathing became increasingly strained. It had gotten to the point where I had to inhale epinephrine at least once a day just to feel like I could breathe. After a few months of this I came to the conclusion that not being able to breathe blows, and I purchased an electronic cigarette for myself. I absolutely loved it. It tasted fantastic and gave me the nicotine hit I…

  • St. Vincent Biggest Oscar Snub of 2015

    20 Feb 2015 | 10:59 am
    The Academy has lost all credibility in my book. I’m starting to think all the Oscar voters are blind. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has sunk to new lows in its continued condemnation of comedy and, specifically, Bill Murray. St. Vincent was easily the best film I saw in 2014. I wept the first time I saw it. I’ve seen it three times now, and I still cry at the end. Yet the Academy didn’t bother to nominate Murray or St. Vincent for anything — not a damn thing. Bill Murray gives an impeccable performance as Vin, a Vietnam vet down on his luck and losing his…

As it is close to two years since we learnt that the NSA is keeping a very close eye on everyone connected to the Internet — especially if they use online services located in the United States. Yet there seems to be a collective ‘meh’ when it comes to privacy, even if we have a number of options to guard our privacy. Also, any uproar regarding encroachment on privacy tends to be short-lived. I’ve lost count of how many times people have been upset with Facebook and how they…

    Movistar Yamaha rider Valentino Rossi finished his 110th race on top of the podium at the third round of the MotoGP season at the “Termas de Río Hondo Circuit” in Argentina. Starting from eighth place on the grid, Rossi kept this place for the first few laps, but soon managed to close up on the front. Current World Champion Marc Márquez started well and made sure to open up a gap on his pursuers Ecstar Suzuki rider Aleix Espargaró and Movistar Yamaha pilot Jorge Lorenzo. Those two battled in the first laps into the race, which gave Márquez an extra advantage for getting away…

    Lewis Hamilton has won the 2015 Bahrain Grand Prix from pole position after a race that drew to a stirring crescendo in the desert. Hamilton came home ahead of Kimi Raikkonen, whose inverted strategy allowed him to catch and pass Nico Rosberg for 2nd with 2 laps to go. The two Mercedes cars developed brake issues in the final laps which allowed Raikkonen to close in. Hamilton made an excellent getaway to lead down into turn 1, with Sebastian Vettel fending off an attack from Nico Rosberg into the hairpin. Vettel managed to keep Rosberg behind, with the second Ferrari of Raikkonen managing to…

Kimi Raikkonen and Nico Rosberg were the two fastest drivers from each session, with the stage seemingly being set for a duel in the desert between Mercedes and Ferrari on Sunday. Practice one would always be a slightly irrelevant session due to the fact that neither qualifying or the race would be run in the hotter conditions of the afternoon in Bahrain. Kimi Raikkonen was the man who would top the session by 2 tenths of a second ahead of team-mate Sebastian…

We wear gloves when it’s cold so it makes sense to keep your feet warm too. Put simply, overshoes are great. The right ones will not only keep your feet warm and dry, they’ll protect your expensive cycling shoes from all the dirt that washes up off the road surface when it rains.

    Jason Whitney Dallas Mavericks polarizing owner Mark Cuban has had multiple run-ins with the NBA hierarchy over the Association’s officiating since becoming owner back in January of 2000. Cuban is undoubtedly the king of NBA fines, but it appears he had at least one legitimate complaint that could have altered the way the 2006-07 season ended. Back during the 2006-07 season, the Mavericks were coming off a controversial NBA Finals against the Miami Heat in which Dwyane Wade lived at the free throw line.

  • WWE Cashes Out on Current Champion’s Finishing Move [VIDEO]

    DUNK360 | Basketball, Football, Baseball, all sports lifestyle and fashion website According to sources, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins will be banned from using his finishing move that earned him the very strap that is over his shoulder, the curb stomp. The finisher is too much of liability for a head injury, but I feel it also has a negative connotation from the cult classic, American History X. Every sport is taking steps to protect their athletes and superstars. The NFL expanded their rules to prevent “defenseless” players from taking shots above their…

    12 Apr 2015 | 12:00 pm
      August 2014 and the season commenced for United. By the end of the summer transfer market, six new faces had graced Old Trafford; Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Angel Di Maria, Ander Herrera and Radamel Falcao. All the signings brought in a wave of expectations, however, only three have blossomed respectably. But more than the summer signings, it is the resurrection of the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini that have propelled United to where they are; sitting in third place, a point behind second-placed Arsenal and four points ahead…
  • Philippe Coutinho – The Missing Piece To The Liverpool Jigsaw

    1 Mar 2015 | 12:20 pm
      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…
  • Balotelli – Liverpool’s wild card

      A phenomenal talent in Inter Milan, an inconsistent player for Manchester City, a rigid and stubborn player at AC Milan and now a soon-to-be-labelled ‘bad body’ for Liverpool; meet Mario Balotelli, a man they love to hate. Liverpool spent 16 million pounds on the gamble that is Mario, and he has so far produced a return of only four goals to abysmally justify his price tag. While many fans took to the signing of the 24 year-old with a pinch of salt, it was inevitable that wherever Mario goes, rumour mongers and tale twisters follow. However, is that justified? Me thinks not. In the…

    Michigan finally got their man. It took some seven years, but two poor hires—Rich Rodriguez (2008-2010, 15-22 record) and Brady Hoke (2011-2014, 31-20)—and an abysmal 46-42 record later, the stars aligned properly for the Wolverines to land Captain Comeback, Jim Harbaugh.   Harbaugh’s time in San Francisco was done after a lackluster 8-8 2014 season with the 49ers that included a falling out with management and an apparently toxic locker room, as per Fox Sports. Michigan was in desperate need of a savior after a wretched 2013-2014, filled with embarrassing losses and PR…
  • NFL Week 12, Infuriating Parity

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:44 pm
    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,…

    Ever since Kris Bryant’s underwhelming debut, he’s been hitting everything in sight. His hot streak continued Monday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates. After the Chicago Cubs hit into a couple double plays early in the game that wasted some good scoring opportunities, Bryant delivered with an RBI-single in the fifth to tie the game at one. Bryant came up with another big hit in the seventh inning, when he smashed a double to left-center field. Jorge Soler scored easily from second base and Anthony Rizzo scored after the Pirates’ catcher couldn’t handle the relay…

  • Abreu’s Opportunity: Be the Best Cuban Player of All-Time

    Ken Ryan
    20 Apr 2015 | 7:33 pm
    When Jose Abreu burst onto the scene last season with a monster rookie season for the White Sox, it wasn’t as surprising as it once would’ve been. Cuban-born sluggers have had immediate success in the big leagues in recent years, most notably Yoenes Cespedes and Yasiel Puig. Abreu ran away with the Rookie of the Year award when he hit .317 with 36 homers and 107 RBI, which was also good enough to finish an impressive fourth in Most Valuable Player voting in the American League. Cespedes, now a member of the Tigers, hit .292 with 23 homers, 83 RBI and 16 stolen bases as a rookie…

    The White Sox have been hit-or-miss (mostly miss) in their first-round draft picks since 2000 in regards to pitchers. Highly-regarded Chris Rodon was called up from the minors Monday and many believe he has the chance to be an ace-caliber hurler before long. The 22-year-old southpaw turned in an impressive performance during spring training, but the White Sox decided to start him at Triple-A Charlotte where he struck out 13 in 10 innings in his two starts before being promoted. The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder, who has an above-average fastball and a devastating slider, will work out of the…

  • Minor League Baseball's Top Ten Best Ballparks

    7 Apr 2015 | 5:55 pm
     The dynamic of what makes a great Minor League ballpark is a little different from what makes a great Major League ballpark. Minor League ballparks typically don't come with all of the bells and whistles that the Major League venues have. If you ask most people, history is what makes a ballpark - Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox) and Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs) are two of the most iconic stadiums in Major League Baseball. They're also the two oldest.  With a smaller demand, smaller payroll and smaller talent pool in smaller cities, the Minor Leagues do the best with the resources they do have.

Kevin Durant missed the first 17 games of the season and has been in and out of the OKC side ever since with little niggles.

He’s bigger, stronger and faster than everyone, and he can guard every position; he’s a freak of nature. We diminish his video game numbers because it’s what we’ve come to expect; it’s his norm. He’s a victim of his own success. We need to remember that LeBron James is a once in a lifetime type of player; like Nike says, “we’re all just witnesses.” With all that being…

Allen, former cornerback for the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins, and New England Patriots hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012.  However, that doesn’t mean he’s been idle.  Tuesday the SEC announced it was charging the former NFL first round pick with fraud alleging that he ran a Ponzi scheme through his investment firm, Capital Financial Partners.  Shortly before going on injured reserve with the Patriots in 2012, Allen created a fund to be used for rom investors earmarked for loans to NFL players for as much as 18% interest.  The fund reportedly collected…

    The Indiana Pacers, still very much alive in the playoff race despite having lost nine of their last 12 games, will at the very least get an inspirational boost this evening when Paul George makes his long-awaited return to the court against the Miami Heat. Who knows what George will be able to contribute after the opening tip. It’s clear, however, that no one, George included, was ever interested in waiting until next season to see if the franchise player still has it, which means at some point over the next 10 days, George will have to have to do something to convince everyone, himself…

    The World Football governing body, FIFA, has mandated that former Flying Eagles striker, John Owoeri, should pay a sum of $150,000 to Egyptian club Ismaily after he decided on his own to terminate his contract with the club in 2012.             The ex-Flying Eagles striker claimed  that Ismaily owed him a total of $50,000 before he terminated his deal and added the poor security situation in Egypt as reason he decided to leave the North-African country.

    For the benefit of any recent graduates, Clarence Thomas, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, was the subject of a bitter confirmation hearing when he was nominated to the bench by President George Bush in 1991. The source of the controversy was an allegation that while he worked at the Department of Education and later at the EEOC, he sexually harassed one of his subordinates, Anita Hill. To date, no other women have made similar allegations against Thomas, unlike, say, Bill Clinton. The hearings were held before the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by one Joe…

Some team always emerges as the unheralded Cinderella, just as some other more highly regarded team stubs its toe. Both the players and their followers bring a level of passion not found in the pro game (witness the girl in the Villanova band playing and crying after her team's unexpected loss).What drives me nuts, though, is the frequency with which the game is interrupted by time-outs, either given to the teams per the rules, or required for TV commercials.

    17 Apr 2015 | 7:15 am
    Gregorio Petit and Brendan Ryan are currently on the Yankee roster but that shouldn't be the case for much longer.  Both players are basically dead weight and have shown nothing to convince anyone that their fortunes will change anytime soon.  Honestly, I have no clue how Ryan made it through Spring Training without being designated for assignment.Brendan Ryan ( season, Ryan's slash line was .167/.211/.202 which represents career lows in all three categories.  He was said to be a defensive specialist when he arrived to the team in 2013 but that hasn't been the…
  • Yankees writing off Refsnyder too quickly

    Rebecca Cox
    16 Apr 2015 | 2:49 pm
    Earlier today, the NY Post reported that the Yankees have been in contact with the Atlanta Braves to show their interest in second base prospect Jose Peraza.  Peraza is ranked 39th by, 54th by Baseball America and 24th by ESPN's Keith Law.  Peraza, a soon to be 22 year old Venezuelan, has been in the Braves' farm system for five years and has a career batting average of .303 with 178 stolen bases.Jose Peraza ( the report is accurate, it would mean the Yankees have soured on Rob Refsnyder and no longer believe he can be their second baseman of the future.  It…

    19 Apr 2015 | 10:57 am
    In the end even 183 proved a piece of cake for the Chennai Super Kings as they sunk Mumbai Indians in the their own backyard at Wankhede in Mumbai. CSK made a mockery of the MI bowling attack as they took their third win on the trot in the eight edition of the IPL. MI were relegated to their fourth loss in as many games. That too in front of a home crowd. Match Report: IPL 8. Match 12. Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings. Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai. April 17, 2015.

    The 2015 Grand Prix of Bahrain was a cracking race, even if did not feature the anticipated Mercedes versus Ferrari fight for the win.

    Deepanjan Datta
    19 Apr 2015 | 8:44 am
    The eventual 18 run margin may look like an easy one, but Mumbai survived couple of whirlwind knocks, a 41(11) blinder from A B DeVilliers and 47*(25) from David Wiese to get on baord the points table. Wiese also had a bowling spell of 4-0-33-4 (including the only third instance of three wickets in an IPL over) to cap a fine day of individual brilliance. Mumbai however, got a much-needed bright start, with Lendl Simmons and Unmukt Chand playing sturdy half-century knocks up top and an aggressive finish by Rohit Sharma to post over 200.

  • The Magnificent 7: Readers of the Game

    Stephen Tudor
    16 Apr 2015 | 4:12 am
    Blasphemy klaxon but the great Bill Shankly was wrong to state that football is a simple game. It is in fact an unfathomable matrix of movement and chaos…except to a rare few. So feet up and slippers on for the blessed handful who deciphered the blood and thunder like me and you skim through Nuts in a recliner. Jean Tigana An integral component of France’s ‘Magic Square, one of the finest midfields to ever grace Europe, Tigana was the guy who saw all the angles. Shirt out, socks down, and presumably with a dog-eared copy of Balzac tucked into the back of his shorts, the elegant schemer…

    Surf champion, jewel thief and cold-blooded killer. Introducing Jack ‘Murph the Surf’ Murphy… Two bodies over the side. If ever there was a metaphor for the death of the surf, the utopian ideal melting into the art of witchcraft, then this was it. Two men as far gone on ambition and their own paranoia as African dictators, forcefully trying not to look at each other as they manhandle two bloody corpses over the side of a boat. Their knuckles chalk white with the strain as they do so. One of them is blasé about matters. He is a bad man and a basic bastard. His name is Jack…
  • Can Martinez Be Trusted To Play Everton’s Cards Right?

    Jim Keoghan
    14 Apr 2015 | 4:40 am
    The Europa League might have disrupted Everton’s season, but huge mistakes were made last summer in terms of recruitment and preparation. Can the club afford to let Roberto Martinez go all in again? Although you can never be sure until the final whistle is blown on the final Sunday of the season, it looks as though Everton’s relegation worries have been put to bed. A recent upturn in fortune has enabled the club to pull away from those mired in the bottom. It would now take a catastrophic collapse in form for the Blues to be drawn back into the fight. While certainly not implausible…

    Modern football at the top level might be decadent and depraved, but with teams like 1.FC Union Berlin bubbling under the soul of the game isn’t yet in the devil’s hands… We’d been to the early Saturday game and were back in the nondescript bar in a bland post war building throwing down lager from plastic glasses, trying to get some feeling back into numb toes. The big screen shows the developments in the main afternoon games and cheers and groans fire round the room as goals go in and coupons are made or ruined by teams they don’t follow.

    Out of favour at Stevenage and with little interest in the UK, Robin Shroot upped sticks for Norway and now finds himself as a key player for a club on the rise. Here he tells us how it happened and why more English players should head abroad… Robin Shroot’s career in England was stalling, and he knew it. In any profession, it’s important to keep testing yourself and improving your skills, even if that means a change in direction. Shroot was earning a comfortable salary at Stevenage but internal politics and managerial changes left him out of the side and in search of a new…

    DeAndre Jordan is the luckiest man alive. At least to me. Troy Taormina/USA TODAY Sports While the rest of us have to browse the Internet to find the latest leaked trailer of Batman vs. Superman, Mr. Jordan got to live every fan boy’s dream by getting to get a glimpse of the film’s props up close at the Batman exhibit at Warner Bros. VIP Studio Tour Hollywood. Jordan, an extremely huge fan of the Caped Crusader, got to see a little more than the average guest. Decked out in attire that would make Bruce Wayne proud, he got a surpise sneak peek of the new Batmobile and his…
  • VIDEO: Browns Receiver Andrew Hawkins Has What We Call “Quick Feet”

    16 Apr 2015 | 4:24 pm
    If you’re not sure what the term “quick feet” means, then just watch these videos of Andrew Hawkins. Ken Blaze/USA TODAY Sports The Cleveland Browns wide receiver showed off his speed and agility during one of his offseason workouts on Instagram, and it is impressive. Hawkins showed everyone how a 5’6″, 180 pound man can survive in the NFL against men twice his size. The answer? Speed. Hawkins has been known for his speed since high school and at his pro day at the University of Toledo before the NFL Draft in 2008, he ran a lightning quick 40-meters in just 4.34…

    13 Apr 2015 | 1:55 pm
    J.J. sure knows how to make an announcement. Mark J. Rebilas/USA TODAY Sports On Monday morning, the NFL superstar posted a video to his Facebook page showing him set a personal box jump record of 61 inches (or 5 feet, 1 inch) then pointing down to his Reebok ZPump Fusion kicks and saying, “it must’ve been the shoes, baby.” This was Watt’s unique way of announcing to the world his new partnership deal with Reebok (terms undisclosed). And if you couldn’t figure out where you heard Watt’s line from, it sounds very familiar to the Nike commercials of the…
  • VIDEO: Tom Brady Throws Touchdowns, Not Strikes

    13 Apr 2015 | 1:06 pm
    It may be hard to see in this video, but Tom Brady is a very accurate thrower. David Butler III/USA TODAY Sports Brady, who was at Fenway Park to throw out the first pitch on Monday, threw a less than impressive with his toss. With David Ortiz behind the plate, Brady’s pitch fell short and outside of home plate. It’s hard to believe that this guy has over a 60 percent completion percentage in the NFL and was drafted by the Montreal Expos out of high school in 1995. In Brady’s defense, he’s probably been too busy playing basketball with MJ than playing catch in his…

    James Harrison is strong. We’ve already established that. Jason Bridge/USA TODAY Sports But it looks like the other Pittsburgh Steelers defensive players are just as yoked. Harrison posted this interesting video to his Instagram account on Thursday. Sure it looks like a regular game of volleyball before you start watching the video, but the moment you hit play, you realize that they’re not playing with an ordinary volleyball. They’re tossing a medicine ball over the net. Yep, a nice and heavy 10 pound medicine ball is being thrown over the net with ease by all four of…

  • 6 Tips For A Smooth Pole Booty

    First things first: real people with real bodies often have at least some real cellulite. This post isn’t intended to encourage you to strive for some cellulite-free existence or feel ashamed of any bumpy spots that might currently exist. That said, pole fitness also tends to be the Land of Booty Shorts, so it’s understandable if you might want to give some extra love to the areas where those bumps show up.

  • Three Floor Moves Everyone Should Know

    15 Apr 2015 | 11:22 am
    What I really love about pole dance, when compared to other aerial art forms, is the abundance of floorwork in pole routines – especially floor moves that have origins in various other dance styles and gymnastics. Floorwork gives pole dancers powerful tools to help tell a story, portray a character and express emotions. I am going to show you my three favorite floor moves: a shoulder stand, a backwards roll and a body wave. What I love about these moves is that polers of all levels can use them. They don’t require too much strength or flexibility, but at the same time you can…
