I remember seeing him play for the Syracuse Nationals – now the Sixers – back in the early-50s on a small black-and-white television set. Rest in peace, Earl Lloyd… I got an e-mail this morning from #1 son saying: “Saw this headline on today: “Hoyer calls McCarthy a ‘coward’ “I had to think – what the Hell could have happened that Brian Hoyer would call Mike McCarthy a coward in the middle of free agent singing when Hoyer needs a job and the…

    The Seattle Seahawks are once again going to play in the Super Bowl this Sunday and they will once again be playing a team with a legendary quarterback from this generation in Tom Brady and his New England Patriots. Last Super Bowl the Seahawks rattled Denver Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning on their way to winning the Lombardi Trophy on a 43-8 route. Since the start of the 21st century the biggest debate has been who is a better quarterback Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. Brady has the rings but Manning has the MVP’s. Peyton dominates in the regular season but chokes in the playoffs.

    Brutal: the job by the refs in the Dallas Green Bay game in the closing minutes. The play in question: a fourth-down pass to the two-yard line by Dallas’ Tony Romo to wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant secured the ball to his shoulder as he landed one foot, held the ball with his left as the second foot came down, then took a third step and a lunge for the end zone with his left arm outstretched. Part of the ball hit the ground, ran up the side of Bryant’s hand, into the air, where he recaptured it. Here’s the definition of a catch as defined by the National Football League.

    “Inside the NBA” producers scheduled the team’s on-air talent to meet on-set today at 3:00 p.m. for their weekly practice of laughing at Shaquille O’Neal’s jokes. “The magic of our show is that it looks so free-flowing and conversational,” said executive producer Jeff McMahon. “And for the most part it is … until Shaq interjects some horrific quote-unquote ‘joke’ or one-liner that just totally kills the vibe. That’s when the guys earn their money by fake laughing and moving the show along.” In order to overcome the…

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have gone 18-2 in the past six weeks to move from sub-.500 to the top of the Central Division. The hot streak has seen the Cavs grow increasingly comfortable with the man who seems to think he is the actual head coach of the team.  “When Carl, I think it is, first started hanging around at the beginning of the season, we all were like: ‘Who the hell is this dude? No one invited him,'” said Cavaliers star forward and head coach LeBron James. “And then he’d try to tell us to do stuff and give input. It rubbed people the wrong way. But now…

    The Minnesota Timberwolves welcomed former star Kevin Garnett back to the team this week, and he was immediately welcome with open arms by his teammates. “Hey, man, you look pretty old,” said 19 year-old rookie forward Zach LaVine to Garnett a few minutes after he entered the locker room. “Do you think you could buy us some beer?” “Yeah, Mr. Garnett,” chimed in fellow rookie Andrew Wiggins. “Or just, like, some Mike’s Hard Lemonade or something? We’ll give you money for it,” he added, holding out a crumpled $10 bill. LaVine and…

    MAKING PEACE WITH THE BIG TEN'S EASIEST PUNCHING BAG Please, sit down. Relax. Watch this mashup of science b-roll and old football calls we put together. Breathe. Let go of your Purdue animosity, and embrace Zen Friday. Purdue University's only really committed three sins. First, it's located in West Lafayette, which describes itself as "award-winning" as follows: You should be proud of your ability to deal with sewage, West Lafayette. You should also find a second thing to be good at. Second, Purdue is the home of Purdue Pete. Purdue Pete is a 1940s Disney character with locked-in syndrome.

    YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCE TO THROW/ YOU ONLY GET THIS OPPORTUNITY ONCE TO LASSO There are so few moments in life where you know you, and only you, are the only possible person for the situation.

    THEY'VE BEEN AROUND SINCE THE DAWN OF TIME, LOOKING FOR THE SIDELINE CAMERA If you watched a single Ohio State game this year, chances are you caught the sideline cameras drifting repeatedly - some might say, too often - to the self-appointed "Superfans" seen here. A constant presence, these "devoted" characters have taken their fandom a step farther, and assumed full-on media personas that, for better or for worse, define the fanbase in the eyes of many casual viewers. It's not a phenomenon unique to Ohio State, though many wish it were. Every football program of note, to some degree, has…

    IT'S ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT, I'M SORRY I was going to tell you about how this week's episode of Empire focuses on honesty and giving voice to your inner conflict. For Hakeem, that means admitting to his mother that he feels she loves Jamal the most, and that moment of vulnerability allows Cookie and her youngest son to start to develop a relationship. In Jamal's case, it means altering the lyrics in one of Lucious's old songs to come out during a public performance. And Andre lays bare his insecurity to Lucious - he's tired of being the family outcast because his talents aren't musical. The…

The show’s phenomenal ratings seem to grow exponentially with each new episode, and several pertinent reasons — including a lack of competition and an innovative soundtrack — have been cited. Star Terrence Howard thinks the show’s willingness to push the envelope is another factor, and he emphasized his belief in an interview with Entertainment Weekly: Howard admits he’s always striving for the show to remain as realistic as possible. “If we start getting silly, if we start playing…

    ABC When it comes to Greg Berlanti-produced comic book fair, something the man seems to be a big fan of is casting fan favorite comic book alums in the currently running iterations of a particular character. In The Flash, he hired John Wesley Shipp and Mark Hamill (the original hero and villain, respectively), and he’s done it again for Supergirl, as it’s been confirmed that Helen Slater (the 1980s Supergirl) and Dean Cain (the 1990s Superman) have joined the cast for unspecified, top secret roles. From TV Line: Slater, of course, played Kara on the big screen in 1984’s Supergirl,…

    LA Times Los Angeles hasn’t had a team since the 90’s, when both its teams left because Los Angeles only likes winners and the Rams and Raiders are not winners. Also because their owners were snooty rich people (The Rams) or insane (The Raiders). Since then however, the NFL has grown significantly in popularity, and yet we still don’t have a team in the second biggest media market in the country. Most teams seem to be using LA more as a scare tactic to get their current city citizens to pay for new stadiums instead of actually moving. Remember those couple of weeks a few…

A previous report had indicated Alvarez and fellow Cuban hurler Vladimir Gutierrez would not be able to sign before July because international prospects born after September 1, 1995 must register with MLB before they could sign, and Alvarez and Gutierrez were not registered. MLB can waive that requirement, though, for a player who has “a compelling justification for his failure to register.” Such a waiver has never been given to a…

However, executives who spoke to MLBTR used a different word — “responsibility” — to describe the process.

A man watched and literally scoffed at me with the “sorry, sucker” look on his face, then climbed into his car. Slowly, I wobbled the bike past his car as he started it and hit the gas. The car didn’t move a bit, but the wheels were spinning plenty.Delightful.  There are few sights more amusing than that of a floundering driver, which is why I watch…

    Going free diving is a great activity that can be done year-round here in California. It also complements surfing, as conditions are best when the surf is relatively small. However, many are hesitant to participate due to the variety of dangerous scenarios that can occur without warning. The most notable being exhaustion, getting tangled in Kelp, getting smashed on the reef or becoming disoriented. The biggest threat is the time that it would take to receive medical aid or support from lifeguards when things go wrong. For example, when I go with my friends in Laguna a Beach, we explore…

    “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…

    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,…

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…

Well covered. Quickly Rodgers turned to the right, to where Cobb was planting his foot in the ground three or four yards upfield and preparing to run a simple in-cut; at the same time, his cover man, cornerback Desmond Trufant, was going to…

Anyway, I went to the 2012 edition and did an okay-ish writeup of getting to hear from Urban and Fickell for the first time in their new roles with Ohio State, but by far my favorite…
  • Ohio State's Transition Game Adds Another Dimension to its Offensive Attack

    Tim Shoemaker
    27 Feb 2015 | 10:05 am
    Trailing Nebraska 4-3 early in Thursday night's game at the Schottenstein Center, Ohio State senior point guard Shannon Scott grabbed a loose ball from underneath the Buckeyes' basket, sprinted toward midcourt and fired a 50-foot pass in the air that found Sam Thompson for an alley-oop slam. On the next possession, Scott stepped right in the way of an attempted dribble handoff by the Cornhuskers, nabbed a steal and went the other way for an uncontested layup. After a Nebraska timeout, Ohio State stole the Cornhuskers inbound pass on their ensuing trip down the floor and D'Angelo Russell…
  • Jon Gruden: "Urban Meyer Did the Greatest Coaching Job of All Time"

    Tim Shoemaker
    27 Feb 2015 | 9:30 am
    Jon Gruden, Super Bowl winning head coach and current ESPN NFL analyst, didn't sugarcoat it when asked about what he thought of Urban Meyer's run this season at Ohio State. "Urban Meyer did the greatest coaching job of all time," Gruden said Thursday on Colin Cowherd's radio show, The Herd. "Winning a national championship with his third-string quarterback, I've never seen that before." Gruden, of course, was referring to Cardale Jones guiding the Buckeyes to three-straight wins en route to their national championship. That included a 42-20 rout of Oregon in the first-ever College Football…

  • Weekly Grumble with IHM 2/27

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:00 pm
      Hello ladies and gents, and welcome to this week's grumble with IHM. This week I started my new job over at the Nut Factory, and so far it's been pretty damn good. My dogs are barking by the end of the day since 90% of my job is walking around looking for inventory, but it's solid exercise and they'll adjust.   To be honest, I haven't done a lot of sports watching this week. I caught a minute or so of the Clippers-Rockets game last night and saw an interesting stat regarding Clipper C DeAndre Jordan. Jordan has missed fewer field goal attempts so far this season (104) than free throw…

    This week I am going to pose some questions.  Do you have an opinion on any of them?  We will see at the end of the post. WILL A WOMAN PLAY MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL? She was first brought to my attention by my buddy Alan in Las Vegas who emailed me a link from Sports Illustrated about a girl who wants to play major league baseball.   Her name is Chelsea Baker.  She is 13 and plays Little League baseball in Florida with boys her age.   She threw two perfect games this last season.  The Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has already hung her jersey on its hallowed walls, a pretty amazing…

    26 Feb 2015 | 7:00 pm
    In an odd pre-trade deadline move the Toronto Maple Leafs moved under-performing and grossly overpaid winger, David Clarkson and his $5.25 million a year contract that still has 5 years left, to the Columbus Bluejackets...Clarkson had just one 40 point + season before signing the deal...Give the guy credit for cashing in, but it was just another in what has been long line of horrible moves by the Leafs... In return, the Leafs got...Wow, this one is great....   Nathan Horton and his $5.3 million a year deal...I believe it has 4 years left on it...That said, since signing that 7 year deal with…

    26 Feb 2015 | 8:13 am
    Welp, since it's Thirsty Thursday, let's talk about what makes a sports fan wanna run to the bar and slam a fred lite or two during Happy Hour of course: NBA.  Rajon Rondo hasn't met a coach he liked or wanted to challenge.  This time it cost him a game and a half for blowing off a coaches call then getting into an f-bomb screaming match with him on the court. Chicago might want to reach for a vat of their favorite beverage after learning Derek Rose went out AGAIN with another knee injury. I'll talk about this Tuesday more, but Zach Randolph down in Memphis needs to tone down his "I'm THE…

  • Super Bowl Post-Mortem: The Makings of a Champion

    2 Feb 2015 | 2:11 pm
    Super Bowl XLIX provided so much drama and excitement.  Thank you New England and Seattle.  It was also memorable and valuable for what we can learn from it.  Despite the outcome and the fact that the Super Bowl trophy belongs to the New England Patriots, it can be said that both teams played like champions. Let's look at the anatomy of championship mindset and what mental conditioning is necessary to compete for a Super Bowl. This Super Bowl was a lesson in putting yourself in the best possible position to win.  Both teams did so much to make themselves champions.

    16 Jan 2015 | 7:17 am
    I am a performance video junkie.  In following people on Facebook or perusing YouTube videos, I have watched an abnormally crazy number of great performance videos related to all types of activities. What has been amazing to me about the comments (beside the incredibly inappropriate and/or negative ones) is the frequency of comments about how talented the performer is.  The second most frequent comment is how the viewer wished he/she could do that.These comments provide great insight into the type of mental conditioning that is so pervasive and so counterproductive to success and…

    "You just have to stay in the moment and understand the game, It doesn't end after the first quarter, second quarter. You just have to keep calm. I've played enough games to understand that. Maybe I didn't do that as well when I was younger.''-Tony Romo, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, after a 24-20 comeback wild-card playoff victory over the Detroit Lions.  Romo provided leadership to the Cowboys with his perseverance, tenacity, composure, and experience.  After being down 20-7 to the Lions, the Cowboys with Romo at the helm, bounced back and took over the game with 17…

    Tweet Today’s post is courtesy of the W.P. Carey School of Business ‘Research and Ideas’ newsletter from February 19, 2015.   W. P. Carey researchers say the Phoenix area benefits greatly — both economically and otherwise — from its portfolio of major sporting events. Not all cities can say the same.

The benefits are enormous if the land and the investment can support this concept but it’s not without risk. The Jaguars become the latest sports franchise to look to mixed-use to drive revenue.

    After finding his scoring touch in Germany, Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to renew his scintillating duel with Lionel Messi in the Spanish league. Ronaldo ended a rare three-game slump without a goal to help Real Madrid win 2-0 at Schalke in the Champions League. “It is clear that Cristiano Ronaldo lives to score goals,” Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said. “It’s never a problem for us when he doesn’t score for a couple of games. But he, of course, minds. I believe we are back on the right track.” Madrid leads Barcelona by one point in the league before visiting a modest Elche side on…

Southee hurried England out for 123 in 33.2 overs, then McCullum made the embarrassment deeper when he smashed 77 from 25 balls, reaching a half century from 18 deliveries the third fastest in the history of one-day internationals after A.B. de Villiers (16 balls) and Shahid Afridi (17).

    How much room is needed to fit sport court in my yard? The room required heavily depends of the desires of the person installing these courts and the total number of people to cheer or play the game. Nevertheless, custom indoor netball courts, among others are designed not only to fit on the available space, but also to fit on the yard. They are also designed to meet personal requirement. However, when installing or building standard competition courts for regional or international sports, the space available should be as big as that of the standard sports fields.

    At some point in the duration of a person’s lifetime, the urge to get fit rises and he gets involved in workouts and fitness regimens. Obesity is not a crime so much as an accident. It so happens that a person’s metabolism level drops owing to lack of exercise both mentally and physically while concentrating on something and failing to look after the body’s needs. Intake of fat without calorie burn is one of the primary causes of obesity and can result in thyroid problems that can increase the condition of obesity to visually abhorrent levels.

    Some people are self-starters, they can come up with an idea and see it through to completion without the help of anyone else. The media likes to romanticize this type of individual, to the point where all too many think that needing help is a weakness. The truth is that we as human beings have reached this point because we come together to solve issues, whether it’s going to the moon or losing weight. That’s why you should consider hiring a personal trainer in Melbourne if you’re serious about weight loss and fitness. But with many options it can be hard to make a…

On one, he took a nifty behind-the-back feed from Taylor, who drew two defenders and found a wide-open Corbett with pinpoint precision. The play debuted at #10 on Saturday’s 11 p.m. SportsCenter and remained at 10 throughout the night and the next morning. The Mountain Hawks went on to beat Boston University,…

  • Trade Victorino? Not So Fast.

    Michael Passanisi
    26 Feb 2015 | 7:49 pm
    (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) In is Sunday Baseball column, Nick Cafardo wrote: “Don’t buy that Shane Victorino will be Boston’s right fielder on Opening Day. If he’s healthy, he will draw interest and be traded.” Cafardo went on to say that John Farrell’s statement that Victorino will start in right was done mostly to increase his trade value. Before we deal the Flyin Hawaiian, however, let’s take a step back. First of all, we must remember how valuable Victorino was in 2013. Playing in 122 games, he showed speed, power, and good defense.

    22 Feb 2015 | 7:37 pm
    As the Sox begin spring training, a lot of eyes will be on their pitching staff. The starting group lacks an ace, and the bullpen is rather unsettled, with closer Koji Uehara coming off an injury-plagued year. Those same eyes will be on pitching coach Juan Nieves, who enters his third season on the job. The first two have featured big highs (a Championship in 2013) and big lows ( a last place finish in ’14 marked by the departure of 4 of the 5 starters from the previous season). Nieves has also known highs and lows in his own major league career. A native of Puerto Rico, he did not…

Only 28 years old, he has shown success at every level of competition, from Rookie Leagues to the majors. Just two years ago, he was considered one of the top hurlers in baseball. A Louisiana native, Miley played college baseball at Southeast Louisiana University. Signed in the first round by the Diamondbacks in 08, he moved up rapidly in the minor league system.

Pending free agents Jon Lester, Jake Peavy and John Lackey were all traded during the season to clear up space for the moves that would most heavily impact 2015. The Red Sox brought in the top two offensive free agents, Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, while restocking their rotation with Justin Masterson, Wade Miley and Rick Porcello. The new additions mixed in with fan favorites Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli, have the Boston faithful geared up…

He had 40 doubles, only the 13th catcher ever to accomplish the feat. Saltalamacchia was backed up by David Ross, a capable sub and favorite of Jon Lester. But in a move that baffled many fans, the team did not tender a free-agent offer to Salty.He ended up signing for three years with Miami.

Failing to capitalize on a dominant first half that saw Raheem Sterling’s powerful shot parried away by home ‘keeper Cenk Gonen, the Anfield outfit couldn’t keep up the pressure following the interval as Ataturk Stadium roared on Slaven Bilic’s men.

    The winter transfer window has become something of a sideshow in English league football, as its relatively short history is littered with stop-gap signings, expensive flops and the occasional sprinkling of season defining moves. The penchant for short-term thinking in the contemporary English game means that many managers use the January transfer window to address their problems by spending excess amounts of cash, laying the foundation for mixed and often spectacular results. Managers will often stake their reputation on a big deadline day transfer, risking their job on the purchase of a…

    There’s an interesting back-and-forth dynamic between the main roster and the NXT roster. In fact, let me call them the Raw roster. The NXT roster has frustration because they aren’t making Raw-roster money, and so they’re staying in “development.” But that frustration is mild by most of them. They’re able to put on good matches against an enthusiastic, albeit, small crowd, and they can work out their kinks. The Raw roster makes more money, but they have a worse creative team, and most of them are stuck putting on these three-minute matches in front of big…

    Once you have established a good stance and inside alignment, with focus on the inside number and the cross hand jam, you are ready to move into teaching your defensive back how to play the football. Press Man Trail Technique for the Defensive Back Defensive back players should be hip to hip going into the transition, focusing on the inside number – not on the head or the feet. The offensive player will release on the outside, and the defensive back will work through the transition into a trail position, with focus on putting a body lean onto the receiver to press him to the sideline. …

    Standing throw drills are an excellent tool for quarterbacks to work on their throwing mechanics, as they emphasize good throwing motion and good upper body form. “One Foot Forward” Quarterback Throwing Drill In this quarterback throwing drill, you can take 2 QB’s and place them 8-12 yards apart, with their toes pointing at each other, the lead foot forward. The QB’s will throw the ball back and forth, focusing on good hip and arm technique. The lead foot forward also simulates the release on a sprint out and allows the QB to get a little different hip position on the throw.

    5 Feb 2015 | 5:53 am
    I am a woman with a slim build and like many women, I look at my body and see imperfections.  I’ve grown to love who I am and appreciate my petite packaging but one thing for sure, I always longed for more curves.  Women’s curves are beautiful and so although I’m not plus-sized, I applaud Sports Illustrated for including a woman with a beautiful, curvy figure in a little black bikini in the 2015 Swimsuit Issue hitting stands on Monday, February 9.  More women can ‘see themselves’ in her and the inclusive strategy will likely convert to big sales for…

McIlroy shot 4-over 74 on Friday at PGA National and, at 7-over total, won't be around for the final 36 holes in his 2015 PGA Tour debut.  The world No. 1, along with the late-early half of the draw at the Champion course, had to endure two weather delays on Friday -- the first for rain, the second for electrical storms in the Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. area.

    Janis Meredith
    17 Feb 2015 | 6:37 am
    Something happens on a team when the members feel a sense of ownership. I attended a leadership seminar recently where they talked about creating an environment in which a business team feels ownership.  Studies show that when employees feel that ownership in their jobs, they are more accountable for their performance and thus help lead the company to greater success. How can parents and coaches apply that same philosophy of team ownership to youth sports, allowing athletes to have a fulfilling and rewarding sports experience? Here are four simple ways to start helping kids claim ownership.

Set the example by showing your kids how it’s done, and hopefully they will follow your lead. Thank the coaches and refs for their work. The game’s outcome doesn’t matter; the refs and coaches did their job and gave their best effort. Be gracious to the winner. If you know them, make a point to congratulate them. If you don’t, you can still go out of your way to shake a player’s or coach’s hand. Don’t go home and trash talk the opposing team. Or coaches, or refs,…

    Way back when, like twenty years ago, about the only way for the NFL and NBA to achieve parity was to award the top draft pick to the team with the worst record. That was largely because the primary ways to acquire players was either by trading for or drafting them. Now, free agency is clearly a major factor in building a team, and in some cases, particularly in the NBA, quickly at that. Boston got Garnett and Allen to complement Paul Pierce and poof!...A championship. Miami surrounded Dwayne Wade with Lebron James and Chris Bosh and boom!...four Finals and two championships in four years.

Since the Super Bowl is now ancient history, I'll remind you that the sentence is what Lynch repeatedly stated during media day prior to the Seahawks' match-up with New England. Really? The guy has turned  tweaking the noses of the NFL and it's agreement with the players' union into a merchandising gold-mine.

    I was watching the Arkansas Razorbacks - Ole Miss basketball game on television Saturday night. It was played in Oxford, Mississippi and the home-standing Rebels had come back to take the lead and seemingly grab a victory in the final few minutes. But with a 125 seconds left. Arkansas was down by three and one of their more unreliable free throw shooters was at the line for two shots. In most situations, you would think it was likely for Alandise Harris to make one out of two, allowing Ole Miss to keep a two point margin. Instead, he makes them both to cut the lead to one.

  • Players Win Games and Coaches Lose Them

    Eric Van Tassel
    22 Feb 2015 | 8:46 pm
    There is a saying in sports that many of us have heard and that’s “Players Win Games and Coaches Lose Them”.  It sounds good and I hear it referenced often but what does it mean?  The success of a player is a direct reflection of the player/coach relationship.  The player/coach relationship is many things.  It is a coaches job to organize his team in such a way that his players are prepared for success. I have five coaching “musts” that enable players to win games and they are as follows: Coaches must teach the players the proper fundamentals of the game Coaches must put each…

    Without a shadow of a doubt, the 40 yard dash remains the absolute most popular football athletic measure.  Athletes, coaches, and parents long to lower their or their athletes times to make a major impression everywhere.  Although there are several variables which affect a player’s stock at anytime (i.e. confidence level, experience, work ethic, instincts, collective athletic ability, etc. etc.) there is no denying the 40 helps performance for ANY player on the field.  Now I’m going to address several key techniques and our specific start training system to help immediately shave a…
  • Goals That Inspire

    Brad DeHaven
    1 Jan 2015 | 1:22 am
    What are some of your goals for 2015? As a player or coach going into off-season I’d suggest that you create meaningful goals that are worth fighting for because life (and your opponents!) will constantly test your resolve and level of commitment. If your team goals, or individual ambitions don’t get your heart racing, blood pumping, butterflies circling, or voice crackling when you talk about them, you may need to go back to drawing board and create some new ones. Why? Because it’s easy to create safe and socially acceptable goals that get a polite pat on the back or an attaboy. Those…

    Too many swimmers are receiving an information overload in relation to their swimming and we are moving away from the fact that swimming is very much a kinaesthetic sport. It does not matter if your stroke is aesthetically pleasing or doesn’t look like the person in the lane next to you as long as it feels right for you. There are really 4 critical points to remember: 1. When you extend your arm at entry ensure your hand catches below shoulder level but is inline with the shoulder. 2. The hand should pass under your face but not over the centre line, elbows pointing at the walls and the…
  • Should I Start Swimming Lessons For My Child Sooner Rather Than Later?

    Richard Watts
    19 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    The question on many parents’ lips is ‘when should my child start swimming lessons?’ For me this is an easy question to answer. I feel that children should be introduced to the water as early as possible. There are many reasons for this, and I will cover many of them in this blog. IMPORTANT: Before booking any parent and baby lessons ensure that you properly research the school beforehand. Many believe that teaching mother and baby lessons are as easy as, getting them in the water and playing games. There is a lot more to it than that! If lessons are taught incorrectly it could have…

  • 5 Mistakes New (and Old) Runners Make

    26 Feb 2015 | 10:31 pm
    Throughout my years of running I have seen so many little mistakes new runners make, that unfortunately derail them from moving forward in their training plan. It can be very deflating to have all of the right intentions and then lose steam. So I thought I would share with you the mistakes I see, and some that I have made myself. 1. Wearing the wrong shoes. There is no question that shoes matter. Wearing the wrong fit or even size of a shoe can cause pain and injury. It is worth the investment to find the right shoe for you. 2. Comparing Yourself to Others. One of the things I love about…
  • The Hot Chocolate 15k – Running and Chocolate? Yes please!

    18 Feb 2015 | 10:45 pm
    This past Saturday I ran the Hot Chocolate 15K for the second year in a row. I was prepared for the cold because last year was painfully cold. We parked too far away and got out of the car too early, two mistakes I didn’t make again. This year I also came prepared in my Feetures! merino wool socks so my feet wouldn’t feel like little pads of ice like they did last year. This is a fairly hilly 9.3 miles and I knew it would be a good training run for me in the midst of my training for the Nashville Full Marathon. First I have to say that I LOVE the jacket we got instead of a race shirt. It…

    Getting Stronger Will Make You Better : 5 of the Top Strength Training Exercises for Runners “A sore body today is a strong body tomorrow!” I have been running for a really long time, two decades or so to be exact. I love it for a million reasons. However, I often times do find myself in a rut. Sometimes it is an emotional rut where I am just not motivated. Other times it is a physical rut where I feel like I am staying stagnant and I am not happy with my pace on a daily run. So this year I decided to put a bigger focus on strength training.

    Understanding What It All Means Even the most casual food shoppers have probably noticed the increased quantity and variety of organic foods available in regular grocery stores. Once the specialty of health food stores, organic foods are spreading from specialty aisles to shelves throughout the big food stores. Maybe you’re wondering what all the fuss is about. Are organic foods healthier? Are they safer? Are they worth the extra money if they cost more than conventional foods? How do they taste? And what about those labels touting foods as “sustainable,”…

    Tacko Fall, a 7-foot-5 high school senior from Senegal, thrives on and off the court by Kristen Giddings   TAVARES, Florida__As young players across the country gear-up for the upcoming basketball season, Tacko Fall stands above them all.

    Alejandro Zúñiga
    27 Feb 2015 | 1:27 pm
    The transition to the Big Ten has been a smooth one for Maryland. The Terrapins have quickly established themselves as one of the league’s best this season. They’re riding a four-game winning streak, including, most recently, a 59-53 home win over Wisconsin. Their fight for a conference title continues Saturday afternoon when the Wolverines visit College Park. “They’re going to be a keeper in the Big Ten for years to come,” John Beilein said of Maryland. The Michigan coach heaped praise upon Melo Trimble, the electrifying freshman guard who scored 16 points — including the…

  • Game 28: Michigan at Maryland Preview

    27 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    Basics Who: Michigan (14-13, 7-8 B1G) at Maryland (23-5, 11-4 B1G) Where: Comcast Center (College Park, MD) When: 12:00 p.m., February 28th, 2015 TV: ESPN Radio: 950 AM, 1050AM The statistics say that Maryland is one of the luckiest, or most overrated, teams in the Big Ten. The Terrapins are 11-4 in conference games, just 1.5 games back from Wisconsin, but have only outscored Big Ten opponents by .002 points per possession. That means that the Terps should be closer to a .500-level team than a conference contender, despite the eye test and the win-loss record saying something very different.

Only 20% of Spike’s three-point attempts this season have been from the corners and he’s shooting just 14% on those attempts. From above the break, he’s a much more respectable 41%.

    It looks like 2015 is already the year of pitching comebacks or comeback attempts, at least. Whether or not the pitcher in question has been retired for years or out of baseball just a matter of months, it seems like more and more pitchers are trying to make their way back to the show and guide their teams up the MLB rankings. Most are in their mid-late 30’s and have been out of the game for reasons ranging from injury to just straight ineffectiveness, a drop in velocity or loss of control. Either way, something has changed the mind of these four veterans who are attempting a comeback…

    The NBA is always considering ways to squeeze more action into a shorter game for its fans. Unfortunately, time is a zero-sum proposition, and if the league is serious about fitting games in under two hours then it appears either … Continue reading →

    Ok, my plan was to go sub 5 hours. Plain and simple. On the one hand I was not preparing directly for that race as my main event is Ironman New Zealand, but on the other hand - I did 5:17 last year on the same course and I wanted to see what progress I have made. It took me 5 minutes and 36 seconds longer than expected. Still, considering the race conditions - I’m happy with that result.

    In case you didn’t know, the gentleman above is named Chris Jones. Perhaps you’ve heard of him.  If not and you claim to be a Louisville Basketball fan, then you’ve either been hiding beneath a boulder for the past week or vacationing at the North Pole.  Regardless of your familiarity, the soap opera surrounding the talented yet tumultuous senior point guard finally reached it’s final episode this past Sunday, less than 24 hours removed from a much needed home win over Miami.  And this episode of As The Jones Turns would not have a warm, fuzzy ending.
  • Lineup Card: Snowmageddon Edition

    23 Feb 2015 | 11:30 am
    Lineup Card is a weekly roundup of ACC Baseball. Each week will feature 9 points including power rankings. Well all in all, it was a good week in ACC baseball. Most teams settled in with an opening tournament somewhere down south. Some teams went farther south than they originally imagined which brings us to our first point: 1. How ’bout that snow? Teams north of the mason-dixon usually can’t use their own field until mid-March due to snow. This week though, a few southern teams fell victim to the weather. The south got its yearly dose of “Snowmageddon” and NC State and…

    22 Feb 2015 | 3:05 am
    After a week when Mother Nature decided to wreak havoc on the residents in the Kentucky area, it only made sense when a group of Hurricanes dropped into downtown Louisville and the Yum Center yesterday afternoon looking to cause major damage. This particular storm came in the shape of a Miami men’s basketball team that sat firmly on the NCAA Tournament bubble entering Saturday’s slugfest. Miami, a team that decidedly beat Duke on their home floor earlier in the season, entered yesterday as a team that was hungry, looking for something to eradicate. And, for 20 minutes Rick…

    The soap opera that is Louisville Men’s Basketball took on a new episode over the past 48 hours that will certainly leave it’s mark as one of the great head scratchers of all-time.  Less than 24 hours before a road game at ACC rival Syracuse, Head Coach Rick Pitino informed the local media that senior Chris Jones (3rd on the team in scoring/1st in assists/1st in Grammy award-winning flops) was suspended indefinitely and would not play against the Orangemen. Louisville, a team that already labored to put points on the board at times, suddenly became uber vulnerable on Wednesday…

    27 Feb 2015 | 10:03 am
    (Photo: Keith Allison)   If this was four years ago, Alex Wilson wouldn’t stand a chance of surviving in JMMA chase. For one, he wasn’t a member of the Tigers. But even if he was, he’d was too good to be considered. In 2011, Wilson, now 28, was ranked the No. 11 prospect in the Red Sox system by Baseball America. The publication said he had both the best fastball and best slider in the Red Sox system. According to this fine gentlemen, who sounds like a caricature of a Bawwston guy, he was the franchise’s minor league pitcher of the year that year as well. He…

    25 Feb 2015 | 1:49 am
    Kyle Ryan entered the chase for the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) as an underdog, but the more he reveals himself, the more his chances keep increasing. Ryan isn’t an ideal candidate. He’s a tall skinny pitcher in a world lousy with them. His background is bland: 12th-round pick of the Tigers, worked his way through the system one step at a time. He might be too good: he pitched six games in the majors last year, including one start, and posted a 2.61 ERA. His name get some points for being two first name but overall it’s bland. Yet, Ryan…

    This year’s version of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) chase is less than a week old, but it already has a controversy. Today we were supposed to learn about Daniel Fields, the local-boy outfielder who couldn’t hit or stay healthy last year. We’re not. Fields is the first player cut from this year’s competition. He was a strong candidate: good enough and young enough that if he found his stroke the Tigers would be willing to call him up this year. But that was also part of the problem. His repulsive season turned him from a high prospect…

He then went on an unprecedented run, pillaging Triple-A, getting called up to the majors and not only contributing, but leaving the burnt remains of his opponents strung all along American League ballparks. Today Hardy’s reign of joyous terror ends. Pitchers and catchers report to Lakeland on Friday. A new class…

    Americans consume 9.4 billion gallons of alcoholic beverages a year: 87 percent beer, 8 percent wine, and the rest spirits. The environmental impact of producing, packaging, and selling all those beverages could make an environmentalist reach for a drink. Breweries and wineries consume large quantities of water, raw materials, and other natural resources. But there’s good news: Green beer is no longer something people drink just on Saint Patrick’s Day. With the rise of the craft beer movement and growing consumer interest in local and sustainable food, more breweries and wineries are…

    17 Feb 2015 | 7:44 am
    BeerGraphs recently posted about their difficulties with overlapping beer styles, especially as it pertains to their ranking system. They discussed the idea of grouping styles into “mega styles” to deal with the overlap, and possibly make their rankings more useful. With only a basic understanding of their ranking system and its goals I can’t really speak to the wisdom of that change. Off hand it seems like they could just use multiple styles and mega styles, and people could sort whichever was useful to them. This got me thinking about Stephanie‘s frequent…

  • Redskins Cleaning Up The Defensive Line

    Tom Blaz
    27 Feb 2015 | 1:09 pm
    The Redskins have parted ways with veteran defensive lineman Stephen Bowen and Barry Cofield. The moves come on the heels of the big free agency acquisition of free agent Ricky Jean Francois. Washington also announced that they have re-signed veteran offensive tackle Tom Compton. Stephen Bowen joins Barry Cofield on discard pile in Washington — ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) February 27, 2015 Cofield was due more than $7.5 million against the salary cap this season and his release creates more than $4 million in additional space as the NFL swiftly moves…
  • Redskins cut Cofield & Bowen, sign Compton

    Thomas Threlkeld
    27 Feb 2015 | 12:59 pm
    In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, the Washington Redskins released two highly-paid defensive linemen today, nose tackle Barry Cofield and end Stephen Bowen. Both players were signed as free agents from division rivals — Cofield from the NY Giants and Bowen from the Dallas Cowboys. Cofield turns 31 next month and was coming off an injury-plagued season that saw him miss eight games and lose his starting job to Chris Baker when he did return. A 9-year veteran of the NFL, Cofield was scheduled to count about $7.7 million against the salary cap in 2015, but the Skins save…
  • Redskins sign DL Ricky Jean Francois

    Thomas Threlkeld
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:22 pm
    The Washington have dipped an early toe into free agency, signing DL Ricky Jean-Francois, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, to a 3-year deal worth up to $9 million, but with only $4 million guaranteed. Including incentives, it’s possible for the deal to reach $11.25 million. The Colts released Jean-Francois on Monday, two years into his 4-year $22 million deal, which he signed after being drafted in the 7th round in 2009 by a certain Scot McCloughan, then General Manager of the San Francisco 49ers. He played two years in San Francisco,  starting five games, before moving on to…

Our friends @ FanSpeak have a pair of simulations to help us preview what the Redskins might do, or in this case, what I would do if sitting in the General Manager chair. We used their “Manage the Cap” feature to run free agency and “On the Clock” to execute a mock draft.

    The Wizards have won only twice in the past month, now losers of five straight after a 97-77 drubbing at the hands of the Timberwolves in Minnesota on Wednesday night. Perhaps Wednesday night’s loss can be contributed to the hype surrounding Kevin Garnett’s return to the T-Wolves. KG with only five points, but added eight rebounds a pair of assists and blocks and a steal along the way. Kevin Martin was on fire with 28 points, while future superstar Andrew Wiggins added 19. Washington played without injured starters Paul Pierce and Bradley Beal, backups Otto Porter and Garrett…

  • New York Giants Release a Warrior

    24 Feb 2015 | 5:54 pm
    Today, the New York Giants released long time defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka. In the press release, the Giants describe Kiwanuka as having a “warrior mentality” – and for many seasons he lived up to that praise; he was a steady starter on the defense, even when it was in constant flux. This is a move that, as stated in the past, had to be made as his cap number was just too great for a player on the down slope of his career. His release will allow the Giants space to do things like franchise tag former All Pro defensive end Jason Pierre Paul. Still, it is a sad day losing a…
  • Night of Redemption

    23 Feb 2015 | 10:59 pm
    Four of five from the field for 11 points sounds like an average night but – for a player who has battled through injuries and trying times – it was a night of redemption. Let’s do a quick timeline of Henry “Bill” Walker’s return to the NBA: In high school, Walker was a top recruit and injured his knee for the first time in 2003. He overcame this injury and chose to play basketball at Kansas State University, and again in 2007 got injured. Despite this, him and Micheal Beasley (yeah, the ultimate bust) entered the draft. Walker then proceeded to get…

    Around an hour ago, ESPN released a story that Adrian Peterson’s agent told the Vikings that he will never play another down for them. Now begins the speculation: Where will the best running back of this generation go? Well, Jerry Jones has always had interest in bringing Peterson over, and with All Pro running back Demarco Murray set to hit free agency, all signs could point to Peterson having the star on his helmet next season. This now puts a fork in Murray’s quest to get paid by Dallas. It also gives the Cowboys a chip in their pocket that AP will be available and has also…

    Shunning the standards in about every route from gimmicks to appearance, the 4lb 15oz. (in .308 trim) Mountain Ascent is a genuinely radical flight from the brain desensitizing absence of creative ability one can discover on almost any firearm shop’s rack. Where this somewhat restless styled Kimber makes its name isn’t in its wild looks, but instead its weight; 4lbs 15oz. It’s not going to win on value point, nor actually styling and magnificence despite the fact that the machining is grand for a processing plant offering, however on the robust premise of being the lightest…

If you’re one of those punters who likes to bet in-running, the back-nine is notoriously harder than the front-nine, especially holes 15, 16 and 17 (known collectively as the Bear Trap) though the 18th is a genuine birdie chance.

There’s a four points gap between the two teams, with the only difference being the fact that BVB are now on the 15th place. Speculations have been swimming around the fact that Klopp might want to rest his most important players prior to Champions League, but would that be the wisest choice when you face a team desperate for the three points?

    It’s not often that a player is still a desired commodity days after his 43rd birthday, but that’s precisely what Jaromir Jagr, who was traded from the New Jersey Devils to the Florida Panthers on Thursday, appears to be.Despite recent frustrations over his playing time with New Jersey, Jagr could prove to be a useful short-term rental for the Panthers. He retains the same soft hands and keen vision that made him a five-time scoring champion. And like so many of hockey’s greatest offensive talents before him, Jagr has a knack for skating where the action is headed before it arrives. His…

     ICC CWC 2015 Vs IPL 2015: No Distinction, both bring smiles on our faces. Historically, Cricket was first played in England. It was quintessentially the English dominance over the game that saw its wider reach all across the commonwealth nations. The longest format of the game, the test match was hugely prominent a few decades back, but in the late 19th century people’s attraction towards the 50-over game format has increased manifold.  ICC CWC 2015 Vs IPL 2015: No Distinction, both bring smiles on our faces Cricket, the gentlemen’s game has dramatically evolved throughout the ages,…

    27 Feb 2015 | 8:37 am
      The inevitable happened this week when long time Kansas City fan favorite Mike Sweeney was announced as the 26th member of the Royals hall of fame. This is an honor which was greatly deserved for a player who was one of the lone bright spots during some of the worst stretches of baseball the Royals fan base has ever had to endure. He wrote bible verses with his autograph and produced the second highest career slugging percentage of any Royal, behind only Danny Tartabull. He hit the second most home runs of any Royal behind none other than the KC immortal George Brett, and along the way…

I was one of those kids in school that wasn’t very good at solving math problems but ask me to figure out Bret Saberhagen’s ERA and I was a wizard. How come there were never any baseball word problems! They always had two trains traveling at different speeds. Who rides trains anyway? Who cares about figuring out when one train will overtake another if one is traveling 20mph slower and left 2 hours earlier? Just check the schedule, it’ll get to the station when…

    So a sinus attack has me awake in the middle of the night. I get to watch the game from September 30, 2014 – again – in its entirety – for the first time since I watched it on live TV. No, I wasn't at the K that night. I am sure in 25 years the attendance for that game will be 200,000 – but I won't be one of them. I attended ALDS 3, ALCS 4, WS 2. What a great post-season for me – and the first I got to witness at the stadium in my life (odd for a man who is 47 years old). Well, was it the high water mark? I'll say it's too early to know.

      Durham Bulls fictional manager Joe “Skip” Riggins once said, “This is a simple game. You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball.” The 2015 Royals will definitely be expected to catch the ball. When Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez and Eric Hosmer all take the field it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that these guys can play a little defense. All three guys have won Gold Gloves with Gordon topping the list with four. So, with left field, first base and catcher covered, let's take a look at the rest of the defense. 3B Mike Moustakas Mike may…

    It is well documented that Wayne Rooney was frustrated at repeatedly being used in midfield by Sir Alex Ferguson during the Scot’s time at Old Trafford. He has spoken in the past about his preference to play as a striker and has even asked for a transfer in the final weeks of Ferguson’s time in charge. David Moyes later reverted Rooney back to his preferred role during his ill-fated 10 months reign but under Louis Van Gaal, Wayne Rooney was again asked to play in that deeper role behind the two strikers and he has been simply awesome.

A conference that constantly floods teams into the regional rankings, NEWMAC teams rarely look at seedings as an advantage—it’s just a matter of getting in. BR-53 Springfield College for example has been seeded No. 3 in the tournament three straight years and has found themselves in the championship game each season only to be crowned the runner-up each time.

  • Racism and Football, is football to blame?

    26 Feb 2015 | 2:09 am
    Paris Metro racism incident - Chelsea fans shove black man off train The issue of racism in both football and wider society is a hugely evocative one. Many have strong and differing opinions and there are a variety of offered causes and solutions. There are also others who believe there is not even an issue. The disgraceful scenes on the Paris Metro recently involving ‘Chelsea fans’ has brought the issue back into sharp focus for many possibly on the periphery of the issue. As a white male (I’m also a Chelsea fan) it is probably difficult for me to fully empathise with those on the…

    Before AS Monaco and Arsenal play the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie, there is much that needs to be discussed. Both teams would say that they got favorable matches by drawing the other. Monaco won Group C despite only scoring four goals. However, the team only conceded once during the group stage. Arsenal, in contrast, was tied for the third highest scoring team in the group stage. They scored 15 goals in their six group games. Here are five things to watch for when the two teams face off on Wednesday. Can Arsenal end their Round of 16 Hex? In each of the last four…

    Ali Haggis examines the best 11 players from the weekend's EPL action and picks his team of the week. Thibaut COURTOIS- Chelsea The Chelsea goalkeeper was probably expecting a quiet afternoon at Stamford Bridge against struggling Burnley but after his side went down to 10 men he was called into action- and how he responded. The Belgian was impressive as a last line of defence and made some crucial saves to ensure his side salvaged a point. Emre CAN- Liverpool Can has been growing in confidence and his stock is quickly rising as a central defender. The former creative midfielder is naturally…

  • 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…
  • Why Alice Should Shove Encryption Down Bob’s Throat

    Dr. Jimmy Wall
    9 Feb 2015 | 12:57 pm
    The new, fashionable claim is that privacy is dead. Which is understandable. Even I have made this claim. 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…

    It’s time we accepted the truth. Much like privacy, journalism is dead, too. I’m not joking. It has actually been dead for a while. Well, not literally dead. There is still some good journalism out there, but it’s difficult to come by — a lot of noise is suffocating it. It’s more like journalism is lying in the gutter, slowly bleeding out. But it’s not the loss of blood that is killing it. It’s the alcohol. Journalism is drinking itself to death, like a homeless alcoholic that has given up on life. Everyone walks by, complaining about its body lying there, drunk, bleeding…
  • Mobile Healthcare Apps Help Americans Find Doctors

    3 Feb 2015 | 10:09 am
    New mobile applications are connecting Americans with doctors based on conditions, procedures, or specialties, saving patients time and money. Traditionally, Americans would have to set an appointment to see their family physician who can refer them to a specialist. HealthGrades is taking that initial appointment out of the equation by allowing patients to seek doctors who specialize in their conditions. As a sufferer of degenerative disc disease, a chronic condition that causes back pain because of a loss of fluid in the discs between the vertebrae, I was curious how this new mobile…

While speaking on Ohio State prospect D’Angelo Russell, Jackson said: “He’s a great-looking kid. Great prospect.” That’s it. According to a report from Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, that was enough to be considered violating the rule: New York Knicks president Phil Jackson will likely face an NBA fine for publicly commenting on Ohio State freshman guard D’Angelo Russell, league sources told Yahoo…

This happened on Charlton Athletic’s field known as The Valley. The description of the video is even better.

The Chicago native use to be a Chicago Bulls’ ball boy in the 80s when a young Michael Jordan was just entering the league. As a ball boy during the late 80s, one would think Common got a plethora of autograph requests from fans. The late 80s Bulls featured Michael Jordan, Charles Oakley, John Paxson and more stars. Of course, there was one instance…

  • Balotelli – Liverpool’s wild card

    Hussein J
    20 Feb 2015 | 8:08 am
      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…
  • Jim Harbaugh Hype Machine on Overdrive

    30 Dec 2014 | 3:10 pm
    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,…

    The Philadelphia 76ers reached the first of what promises to be many lows for the 2014-15 NBA season against the Dallas Mavericks on November 13. After amassing an impressive 29 first-half points (Dallas led 73-29 at the half), the Sixers exploded for 41 in the second half en route to a 123-70 loss, their 8th straight to start the season.   Words like “laughingstock” come to mind and though the season is still young, discussions about this year’s Sixers being “the worst NBA team ever” are blooming among NBA pundits, including USA Today’s Mike Foss.

Yes, many players are given the opportunity to quarterback an NFL franchise, and some are given one or two chances, but McCown keeps finding starting jobs.

    NBA Players, We Got NBA Players, Who Wants ‘Em?So the NBA trade deadline passed, and lots of stuff happened. It was a serious thing, so many teams went hard at trades and for the most part it looks like most of them came out as better sides too.The Phoenix Suns are the obvious exception. They gave up more than they got back in downgrading point guards from Goran Dragic to Brandon Knight. A pretty sure sign that they don’t back themselves to hold onto the eighth seed (heck, they’ve already lost it since Deadline Day).#HEATnation what you think? Looks good to me...

It should be an easy decision to make when you have not one, but two NBA championship rings, a Hall of Fame-worthy career resume, and untold millions in the bank. But Allen seems to be really wrestling with this one. Unless the plan is to skip training camp and the entire regular season, it stands to reason that the longer he waits to reveal his decision, the more likely it will be that reporters will be summoned to his retirement…

    I would venture that even the most casual of NFL fans can recall when the New Orleans Saints traded every available pick from the 1999 draft (and then some) to the Washington Redskins in order to select Heisman Trophy winning running back Ricky Williams. For me, the images of Mike Ditka wearing fake dreadlocks and the cover of Sports Illustrated with Williams in a wedding dress are fresh in my mind still to this day. The fact that New Orleans compiled only a 3-13 record in 1999 is significant because, in addition to every available 1999 draft pick they felt compelled to add two more picks…

    27 Feb 2015 | 7:21 am
    Inter have boosted their defensive ranks for the rest of the season by signing former Parma and Fiorentina man Felipe on a short-term deal. Brazilian defender Felipe has signed a contract until the end of the season with Inter after a year without a club. The 30-year-old left Parma in February last year after a dispute over unpaid wages – an issue that continues to plague the crisis-struck Tardini club. Felipe joins an Inter side that have registered clean sheets in a third of their Serie A fixtures this term, but have also made a habit of conceding late goals in recent weeks. Inter face…

    Fiorentina face Serie A rivals Roma in the UEFA Europa League round of 16, while holders Sevilla take on Villarreal. Serie A rivals Fiorentina and Roma will lock horns in a mouth-watering UEFA Europa League round-of-16 tie next month. Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella spent 10 years at Roma during his playing days and also had a spell as caretaker coach at Stadio Olimpico, but there will be no room for sentiment when his side attempt to dump the Eternal City club out of Europe.

Jose Mourinho is confident Sunday’s League Cup final clash with Tottenham will not be marred by another refereeing controversy.

    27 Feb 2015 | 10:49 am
    Granada defender Jean-Sylvain Babin believes Malaga have revealed the formula for beating Barcelona and will go into Saturday's match at the Estadio Los Carmenes full of optimism. Barcelona won plaudits for their midweek 2-1 away win over Manchester City in the Champions League, but their last league outing was a shock 1-0 home defeat to Malaga which has left them four points adrift of Real Madrid at the top of the table. Given their midweek display, few would bet against Barca getting their title push back on track against lowly Granada but Babin has other ideas. "There is a formula to stop…

Four points separate OM from leaders Lyon, with coach Marcelo Bielsa believing his side should be level after conceding last-gasp goals against Reims and St Etienne in their last two matches. The Reims draw ended a series of 11 straight home wins. "We could have four extra points. They were deserved,"…

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is wary of the counter-attacking threat posed by Crystal Palace as the sides prepare to meet in the Premier League on Saturday. Allardyce's men are without a win in five matches in all competitions and have dropped down to eighth in the league following a run that has dented their ambitions of European football next season.

    Tottenham Hotspur face a crucial trip to Fiorentina in the Europa League on Thursday as they try to reach the last 16 of the competition. The last-32 tie is finely balanced after the two sides played out a 1-1 draw in the first leg at White Hart Lane last week. Roberto Soldado gave Spurs an early lead, but Fiorentina managed to get themselves an important away goal through Jose Basanta. Despite their strong showing in the Europa League this season, concerns have been raised over whether the Tottenham players will have one eye on Sunday's League Cup final against Chelsea.

However, the game was overshadowed by events off the pitch, with 23 Feyenoord fans arrested before the game, as the Dutch supporters also caused permanent damage to Rome’s city centre.

Coach Dean Smith A few basic facts about Coach Smith: He was the head coach of men’s basketball at the University of North Carolina for 36 years. He won two national championships, and was in 11 NCAA Final Fours. He is one of only two coaches to have played on and coached a winning NCAA championship team (can you name the other?)

    With friends like Christine Brennan, Jameis Winston doesn't need any enemies. Writing in USA Today, she paints the profile of a serial misfit and small-time hoodlum who beat the rap on the most serious charge made against him - sexual assault. With all the compassion of your beloved teacher in third grade, she advises Winston to sit down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and open up about all his past misdeeds, including, one assumes, the rape charge that was never proven. My take on Winston is a little different. IMHO, most of his antics, while irresponsible and juvenile, were…

For anyone not already inclined to take these "expert" analyses with a large grain of salt, here is a reminder why you should. As a rule I pay very little attention to pre-season predictions, as there are some variables (injuries, for example) which are simply impossible to predict.

Even though I was rooting for New England, I feel terrible for Pete Carroll. He will have nightmares about this game for years.  It will also give the media something to write about for years.

    Now that the Yankees have lost Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada to the Red Sox over $13 million dollars, where do the Yankees turn now?  With the struggling Stephen Drew being their most experienced second baseman, the Yankees desperately need an upgrade at the position.  Here are some of their possible options:1.  The Yankees could consider making an offer to another Cuban infielder, Hector Olivera, who is said to be far more MLB ready than Moncada.  I believe we can cross him off the Yankees' list for the following reasons:  He hasn't been cleared by MLB as of yet so he…

    SAVE 30% OFF ALL REEBOK OUTLET ITEMS WITH CODE “SAVEMORE” THROUGH 2/24/15Just for fun, here's my prediction for the Yankees' starting lineup:1)  Gardner:  He doesn't steal as aggressively as Ellsbury but he also has less pop so it makes more sense for him to leadoff.2)  Ellsbury:  Ellsbury fits well in the 2nd and 3rd spot in the order but his speed makes him more valuable batting 2nd as long as the #3 hitter does his job.  If not, Girardi won't hesitate to move Ellsbury down to the 3 hole.3)  Beltran:  I also could have went with Headley here but I'm…
  • Yankees' Monument Park not so exclusive

    21 Feb 2015 | 11:52 am
    Last week the Yankees announced that they will be honoring Andy Pettitte, Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada this season by retiring their numbers and placing their plaques in Monument Park.  All three players have contributed greatly to the Yankees over the years but do they belong alongside such names as DiMaggio, Gehrig, Mantle and Ruth.  In my opinion, none of the three have made contributions worthy of being bestowed with such an honor.  Having a day in their honor, no problem, but retiring their numbers and receiving plaques in Monument Park, truly incredulous.The Yankees…
  • Garrett Jones will be invaluable to Yankees

    20 Feb 2015 | 7:24 pm
    The Yankees acquired Garrett Jones last December as part of the Martin Prado/Nathan Eovaldi trade with the Marlins.  While many fans believe Jones will be nothing more than a decent backup, I believe he will be an invaluable member of the team this season.  Jones has the ability to play first base and right field which immediately makes him very important for the Yankees due to the recent injuries to Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran.Garrett Jones ( lefty Jones has hit .253/.314/.450 for his career to go along with an average of 22 home runs, 64 runs scored, and 73…

    We’re not here to get dragged into the argument of the greatest player of all time, we’ve still got the Twitter scars from suggesting Messi still isn’t fit to lick the highly addictive piss off Maradona’s boots. Excitement though, we’ll argue with you about excitement, and if you even dare to suggest that Ronaldinho isn’t the most exciting player of the last 20 years then we’d ask you to pick a window and put down your pint. It’s a bit sad, really, that the two-time world player of the year and jacuzzi aficionado finds himself, aged 34, plying…
  • Ireland v England: Blood, Thunder & Extreme Violence

    They’ll tell you it’s bigger than a game, bigger than a sport even, summoning forth spirits of blood and thunder with a rivalry that ignited with the Norman invasion of the 12th century and has had tensions simmering ever since. Reality is less poetic – it’s the half way point, both teams have played well and then played average. Here are five key men for Ireland and the Englishmen out to stop them Johnny Sexton Gun to your head, and let’s be honest, he looks a bit of a wimp doesn’t he?

  • Paper Man: The Life and Death of Matthias Sindelar

    Known as ‘the Paper Man’ for his slight frame, Sindelar was the darling of football fans in pre-war Vienna for his incredible ability and remains a hero for his refusal to be cowed by Nazi oppression… Until the tanks rolled in and Adolf ruined everything Vienna in the 1930s was a vibrant and wonderful place. It was a cultural hothouse that produced such unique minds as Freud, Schnitzler and Hayek and the cities many coffee houses fizzed with passionate debate on anything the intelligentsia deemed worthy. Amongst the heated discussions on socialism and polemics on Carl…

    No British fighter of the modern era has consistently fought as many hard fights against world class opponents as Carl Froch, yet his youth coach Dave McPhilbin paints a picture of a nervous kid who needed plenty of reassurance… The Phoenix Amateur Boxing Club is made up of one single room. It is long and sparse. Sunlight pours in from large windows and glistens off the line of heavy bags that border the gym’s small ring. Everything about the room is unspectacular. Everything except the honours board, which is decorated with newspaper clippings and photos of successful graduates.
  • Brendan Rodgers: An Apology

    Just when it seemed Liverpool couldn’t get any worse and with large sections of the fans calling for Brendan Rodgers’ head, he found a system that sees us as the form team of 2015. It’s time to say sorry… “It’s the new defensive coach that we got in that everybody thought we needed, that’s what has done the trick.” Okay. We probably deserved that. If I’d taken the stick that Rodgers took from August to December then I’d probably want to make sure that people knew that I was aware of what was being said about me as well, make sure that they were…

  • PICS: Tom Brady Steps Up His Offseason Workout By At Least 300 Pounds

    25 Feb 2015 | 2:56 pm
    Robert Deutsch/USA TODAY Sports Okay, so there may be a little fiction behind that headlines… okay, maybe alot. Earlier this month we poked a little fun at Tom Brady, when he posted a picture to his Facebook page of him working out with his “trainer.” It looked like a great time, but I felt that Brady could be pushing himself a little bit more in the weight room. Maybe he heard us, because he definitely increased his workload. Brady was having some fun on Facebook today and posted the perfect photoshopped picture of him planking with Vince Wilfork on his back. In full pads.
  • Sad News & Players React: Derrick Rose Injures Knee Again & Will Require Surgery

    24 Feb 2015 | 9:17 pm
    Jennifer Stewart/USA TODAY Sports Whenever an athlete gets injured, it’s always a sad moment. But the latest injury to Derrick Rose is definitely a crushing blow to the Chicago Bulls and the league. According to ESPN, Derrick Rose had said he was experiencing some pain in his right knee early Tuesday. By the end of the day in Chicago, it was announced that Rose had a torn meniscus and will need surgery. Rose is one of my favorite players in the league, and I was excited to see him start to regain his form. When he was trying out for Team USA last year, you could see the flashes…

    23 Feb 2015 | 7:04 pm
    It took these three players less than 4.4 seconds to win $100,000. Brian Spurlock/USA TODAY Sports With the NFL Combine underway and with many players who are just grateful to be there, these particular three players had a little more incentive to perform faster than the others. Trae Waynes, Phillip Dorsett and Kevin White each won $100,000 from their sponsor, Adidas. In the past, Adidas only paid their top-fastest player $100,000, but this year they widened that field to three. It really does pay to be fast. And not only did they get paid, they also got to meet Snoop Dogg himself, who also…
