Thanks to the NFL Punishment Generator, though, you too can answer a series of questions and receive a punishment—generated via a set of mysterious but certainly stupid criteria—that fits your crimes.

    Your browser does not support iframes. Wilmer Flores is reportedly part of the deal that will send Carlos Gomez from the Brewers to the Mets. The pending trade has been widely reported including by ESPN, the New York Daily News, and various other places online. The deal won’t be official until physicals are done. For whatever the reason Flores remained in Wednesday night’s Mets’ game vs. the Padres where he was caught shedding tears while returning to his position at short after receiving an ovation during an at bat. So in typical Mets fashion they appear to make a good…

It appears Mets’ ownership listened to the pleas of its fanbase and agreed on a deal for the Brewers outfielder Wednesday night, pending physicals according to multiple online reports. The price to acquire Gomez was reportedly steep: injured righthander Zack Wheeler and shortstop Wilmer Flores. I’ll just throw this out there since the Mets don’t always have the best luck with injuries … Source says only stumbling block to Mets' Gomez deal is if Brewers balk on Wheeler's physical. No deadline extension, has to…

    HE'S BACK AND THAT. IS. AWESOME. I have this theory that most of us (possibly secretly) love one college football player who went to a rival school. Usually, this player is so talented, so capable of doing things that make the other impressive athletes around him look pedestrian, that you can't help but love him, even though he's actively making life worse for you and the team you root for. This is the player that has you acting like a taciturn dad during a game; you just say "mmmm" and shake your head because there's not much else you can express. For me, that player is Eric Berry, who…

The coach is a brown bear wearing a camouflage jacket and a pith helmet, and he speaks with the voice of Ted Marchibroda.

    Sometimes the simplest things in life make the biggest impression. That's why I'm stoked to be adding some clothing from Bella + Canvas to my wardrobe! Focusing exclusively on fashion-forward knit tees and fleece, their entire collection is made here in Los Angeles using 100% combed and ring-spun cotton and fine-gage threads for the most durable and comfortable clothing possible. And they execute on this focus perfectly! Let's face it, most surfer's are pretty simple when it comes to style. We prefer a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, over a shirt and tie for most occasions. But that doesn't…

    The New York Yankees look to get back in the win column at the Texas Rangers on Thursday. The red hot New York Yankees haven’t been tasting defeat very often with wins in eight of eleven heading in to Wednesday’s tilt at Texas. They got a rare taste in a 5-2 defeat with both the arms and bats coming up short. Mashiro Tanaka did not have his best stuff with four runs plated on nine hits and a trio of bases on balls. That was too much for the  Bronx Bombers eight hit attack that featured a solo jack off the bat of Carlos Beltran while Jacoby Ellsbury singled in Didi Gregorius. Michael…

They Love — with an implied capital L — sports of all kinds, and they’re devoted to watching and attending games with religious fervor. They know where all the players on last year’s NBA championship team went to college and high school, and are always on top of whose free agency is going to affect the NFL draft and why. This special breed of sports fan knows obscure stats from decades ago, and they never pass up an opportunity to discuss any game, match, or race.

Only two teams will finish over .500 in the Western Conference The Tulsa Shock has put up a good fight since Skylar Diggins, the team’s leading scorer and the Western Conference’s reigning Player of the Month, succumbed to an ACL injury on June 28th.

The student had alleged that the school district’s policy of excluding him from the male restroom and facilities violated Title IX, arguing with the Department of Justice’s support that sex discrimination has been broadly interpreted to encompass gender-related considerations as well, and thus ought to cover discrimination targeting a student because his gender does not match the sex he was assigned at birth.

Steven Wright wasn’t able to get out of the 1st inning without giving up a run.  Wright gave up a solo homerun to Cespedes.  In the…

Porcello looked pretty good last night even though he wouldn’t get the win.  He only gave up one run and it was in the top of the 3rd.  Porcello gave up an RBI single to Kinsler.  Sox 0-1.  The Sox offense got him that run right back in the bottom of the inning when Holt hit an RBI…

    Throughout independence, the conventional thinking for BYU fans and pundits has been that the Cougars need to join a conference that is included in the self proclaimed “Power 5″ conferences. The massive realignment a few years ago shifted the evolving NCAA football landscape and forecast an eventual doom for the “wanna-be” schools like BYU and Boise State. Ever since then, BYU has continued to fight for notoriety and crumbled under the pressure. While BYU has had its share of big moments, namely two massive wins against Texas, they’ve also had their share of…

    Cinderella Man and The Miracle are two of my favorite sports movies. Both feature amazing underdog, comeback stories and end with the victor enjoying the glory. The battle for starting quarterback for the Utah Utes allows for one of two players to enjoy such glory: Travis Wilson or Kendal Thompson. Kendal Thompson Thompson has been beat back multiple times in his college football career. First, he was denied the starting QB job at Oklahoma. Then he suffered from a season ending knee injury last season for the Utes. Now, this season is coming up quickly and he has a chance for a comeback.

Now the West is better than the East every year for over fifteen years now, and if this trend continues, maybe Adam Silver will get rid of conferences altogether. Fat chance, I know.

Now I believe that Hackett is truly a valuable piece to the success of the Utes because of his talent and ability to help the Utes win the field position battle but in no way, shape or form do I think he’s the most important player on the team this upcoming season.

    It's been a wild MLB trade season and no deal had more twists and turns than the Mets' attempt to land Carlos Gomez. The New York Mets have been rumored to be in the market for another bat for most of the summer. For a brief period, it appeared they found what they were looking for after reportedly agreeing to a deal for Carlos Gomez. MLB trades are agreed to all the time then officially announced later once all the I's are dotted and T's are crossed. This time, however, there was a slight hangup in the final details.

The lead up to MLB's trade deadline, which is set for 4 p.m. ET Friday, is getting crazier by the minute.

As the old saying goes though, better late than never. Following back-to-back 89 loss seasons over the past two seasons, Amaro changed course and officially began the rebuilding process by trading…

The former Toronto Raptors will bring a different attitude into the Celtics locker room full of young players. Johnson plays his heart out on both ends of the court which has gotten him a lot of respect around the league. After signing with the Celtics, Johnson ran into a little problem regarding the number he will wear this upcoming season. Number  15 is the number he wore with the Raptors, but the Celtics have retired that number. After searching long and hard, Johnson settled on…

But one of the biggest trade rumors about the Celtics involves the Charlotte Hornets and owner Michael Jordan. According to Zach Lowe at Grantland, Jordan turned down four 1st round picks from the Celtics in exchange for the ninth pick in the NBA Draft.   The Celtics offered four first-round picks for the chance to move up from no. 16 to no. 9: that 16th pick, no. 15…

After the Indiana Pacers hinted at Hibbert’s role being diminished, he still decided to opt in to his contract. That led to the Pacers trading Hibbert to the Lakers.

Hibbert says he expects to play at an All-Star defensive level with the Lakers.   The Lakers, however, view Hibbert as a player who can not only regain his standing as an All-Star big man, but anchor…

    Life after professional sports can be tough for any athlete. “Honestly, when I finished playing, I was lost myself and I didn’t know what I was going to do.” -Byron Mouton The Washington Post recently shared a story of three former Maryland NBA stars who found a lifeline coaching youth sports.

What did they do to help their child achieve championship status? Their answers were not really what I’d expected, but they most definitely made me smile. These are the thoughts that their sports parent behavior broadcast loud and clear: You help your child become a champion by being supportive, not pushy. You’ve seen pushy parents, the ones who always speak for their children, demand a lot from their children, and insist on pushing their kids to perform…

    ESPN parted ways with Colin Cowherd a week earlier than planned due to the radio host's disparaging comments about the Dominican Republic. Perhaps Cowherd, host for more than the last decade of "The Herd" that aired on ESPN Radio from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm eastern time, forgot that he hadn't yet left the network and was taking too many liberties with his comments. He's always been a bit caustic and controversial, but never really challenged the boundaries of the nation's largest sports network. On Wednesday, Cowherd confirmed and commented on what had previously been widely reported, that he…

    On a hot and humid July Thursday night, it's time to start looking forward to the upcoming college football season. I'm going to focus on exposing what I believe to be the most courageous and lamest non-conference schedules among major conference teams. We're now in the second season of the College Football Playoff era, and I believe any major five conference team without a non-conference game against another major conference team should immediately be eliminated from contention, with the exception of the conferences that require nine conference games. I understand the argument that tough…

As a Meals on Wheels volunteer, I found myself in my car for most of the duration of Colin Cowherd's weekday program. He brings a rather unique perspective and style to sports commentary that I still enjoy to this day, especially since I attempt to look at sports a bit differently in this blog.

    The Old Course at St. Andrews hosts The 144th Open Championship this week, with Jordan Spieth gunning for the third leg of a potential calendar year Grand Slam. Ordinarily, the tournament known as the British Open in the U.S., provides a unique style of course. However, after the goofy golf we saw at Chambers Bay in the U.S. Open, St. Andrews may look like a normal layout. Even though Spieth is trying to deflect comparisons between himself and Tiger Woods, it's impossible not to start looking at the similarities early in their careers. I agree with the latest and greatest that those parallels…

Morris will stay the starter in offensive line coach Bill Callahan’s new power running scheme but competition for his “partner in crime” — likely a third-down-pass-catching-out-of-the-backfield partner — will be tight.

    The July evaluation period is in the books and Michigan has already added a class of 2016 commitment. Here’s an overview of where things stand after the July evaluation period. 1. Ibi Watson earns his offer It wasn’t a well kept secret that Ibi Watson wanted a Michigan offer entering July and that the Wolverines weren’t going to give it away easy. The mutual interest was there from the start, but Watson needed to play well this July to join the class. He did and now he’s in. There were other options like Karmari Newman, Amir Coffey and even a late-bloomer like Maishe…

Backstory Ibi Watson has been on Michigan’s radar for quite a while now, but he really emerged this spring when he impressed at Michigan’s College Practice Camp and Team Camp in June. His strong play at the camps piqued Michigan’s interest and when combined with Tyus Battle’s decommitment, led to Michigan coaches tracking Watson consistently throughout July.

    One aspect of the game parents often ask for help on is hitting. Specifically, “How do I get my daughter to hit better in games?” Well, if she’s hitting fabulously in practice and struggling in games, one thing is obvious… The way she approaches practice (mentally) and the way she approaches games are completely different. This is where the problem lies. So how can you help her be more relaxed in the game like she is in training or more intense in training like she is in the game? Well, if you’re not the coach and don’t control her training environment,…

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

  • Cook Set To Ring Changes Ahead of Third Ashes Test

    A week can be a long old time in sport, and that is certainly the case for England’s cricketers right now. A fortnight ago they were the talk of the town following their crushing of Australia in Cardiff, and now the shoe is on the other foot following the Aussies’ 405-run dismantling of the Three Lions at Lords. So honours are even then heading into the third Ashes rubber at Edgbaston, but the real worry for England is the damaging psychological affects that the Lords hammering has on their top order batsmen. A quick look at the stats reveals that three of England’s top four – Adam…

    14 Jul 2015 | 8:22 pm
    Protein is an important macronutrient needed by the body. Without it or the lack of it, can result to irritability, hair loss, muscle weakness. If you are an athlete or a fitness enthusiast, protein can help repair your muscles. During prolonged high intensity or strenuous activities like exercise, the muscles, particularly the small filaments that aids in muscle contraction, are strained and microscopically damaged. The body then sends out essential nutrients like protein for growth and recovery. Protein from food can meet your body’s required protein intake. But if you are busy and…

However, with Joe Root continuing his stunning form of the last 12 months, Alastair Cook’s men were dominant for much of the game and they head to Lord’s with a deserved 1-0 lead. The Aussies remain favourites for the Ashes but much will depend on the fitness of key strike bowler Mitchell Starc. As for England, the selectors have named an unchanged squad for the second test but in a long series, we may yet see some changes as the…

  • Arsenal want DOUBLE THE MONEY offered for forgotten flop

    Johnny Maryland
    30 Jul 2015 | 2:36 am
    Arsenal have reportedly rejected an offer of £3.5m from Palermo for forward Joel Campbell. The Daily Express claims that Arsene Wenger wants closer to £7m for the Costa Rica international. Campbell has yet to start a Premier League game for the Gunners since joining from Saprissa in 2011. He spent loan spells at Lorient and Real Betis, before impressing in the Champions League with Greek club Olympiacos and in his country’s run to the World Cup quarter-finals in the 2013-14 season. But he returned to the Emirates Stadium to find opportunities still limited, and Arsenal are now…

    4 Jul 2015 | 2:19 pm
    Down goes the king Joey Chestnut looked like he had just come from a massage. The mustard yellow belt hung off his shoulder. He stood next to the ESPN reporter for his pre-contest interview and spouted off cliches without a care in the world. Like a President in his final term, he didn’t have to answer to anybody anymore. That should’ve been the first sign. It had always been too easy for Chestnut since Kobayashi left. Wins No. 4, No. 5, No. 6, No. 7 and No. 8 in the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog eating contest came and went without a challenger. Now he was looking for No. 9 and…
  • The Red Wings aren’t better than the Lightning, but that doesn’t mean they can’t win the series

    22 Apr 2015 | 10:06 am
    (Photo: Bridget Samuels) The Red Wings lead the Lightning two games to one. They can lose every remaining road game and still win the series. But if the Red Wings advance, “winning” won’t be the right word. The Lightning are too fast for the Red Wings. They’re just as deep offensively and have a better-skilled defense corps. They’ve outshot Detroit in every game thus far. The Red Wings took 37.6 percent of the total shots through the first three games, the lowest amount of any team in any playoff series. Detroit’s Corsi For percentage for the series is…

(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…

    The Washington Nationals have acquired former Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon in exchange for prospect pitcher Nick Pivetta.  The move is expected to move Papelbon into the closer role, with current closer Drew Storen moving to a setup role. The Nats bullpen has been far from a disaster.  Overall, the bullpen ranks seventh in the National League in ERA and WAR.  Furthermore, current closer Drew Storen has actually been quite effective, posting a 1.73 ERA and saving 29 games, which is third overall in the National League.  Storen converted 29 of 31 save opportunities.

    Gun rights vary from states that have all but made it impossible to own firearms and related accessories to states where few restrictions exist. For the third consecutive year and first time in print, Guns & Ammo presents our assessment of each state’s gun laws in a format that ranks them from worst to first for gun owners.

  • 9mm Ammo Quest: Lehigh Defense Maximum Expansion

    19 Jul 2015 | 9:33 pm
    Ever since I published my first test of Lehigh Defense’s absurdly impressive “Maximum Expansion” ammunition, people have wanted to see it tested in other calibers.  Which I understand, but frankly, I haven’t been in that big of a rush to do so because — well, the .45 Colt version that I tested above is a unique and special situation.  It’s an exceptionally over-long bullet, made possible because of the exceptionally long chambers in the .45/.410 shotshell revolvers.  I didn’t test Maximum Expansion during my .380 Ammo Quest, because the manufacturer’s own specifications…
  • The USMC M40 Sniper Rifle: A Useful Life?

    Next year, the Marine Corp will celebrate the 50th birthday of an old friend: the 7.62x51mm M40 sniper rifle. Like most 49-year-olds, this old war horse has been through a lot. Born in the early days of the Vietnam War, the first variant was a far cry from today’s M40A5. The early models were not well suited for combat in Southeast Asia. The wooden stocks were prone to warping, and the range-finding reticle in the Redfield 3-9 power Accurange scope could melt in the hot sun. By the 1970s, these two major issues had been solved by incorporating a McMillan HTG stock and the Unertl MST-100…

    Once–disgraced slugger Alex Rodriguez turned 40 years old Monday, and he’s still hitting home run hat tricks. His remarkable return to form (at the moment he’s a top-10 hitter despite missing all of last year) has even New York fans who loathed him not long ago mulling his redemption.So just how good, just how unexpected, just how amazing is this season of his?From at least some angles, very.

    On the occasion of this past week’s Major League All-Star Game, when baseball’s absurd abundance of young talent was on full display (Hello, Mike Trout!), the question was worth asking: Where did these two All-Star teams stand historically, in terms of the most gifted groups assembled since the first All-Star Game was held in 1933?The answer might (or might not) surprise you.To get a handle on the talent available to each league in each All-Star Game, I used the run-based components12 of Baseball-Reference’s wins above replacement (WAR) to build a projection system that, in terms of…

    What seemed destined to be an ongoing holdout saga between Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys came to an abrupt end Wednesday when the two sides reached a deal for a five-year, $70 million contract with $32 million fully guaranteed (with up to $45 million sort of guaranteed). Right around the same time, the Broncos re-signed Demaryius Thomas for an eerily similar amount.While not quite as precedent-shattering as the $100-million-plus with $50 million(ish) guaranteed that Calvin Johnson — perhaps the premier wide receiver of our time — got in 2012, these are still staggering…

Most likely: Greg Monroe.Nutz: The knock on Oakdawg, as he will be known next year, is that he's just not that exciting. He's kind of slow. Doesn't throw down big dick swinging dunks like Deandre Jordan. Doesn't have unlimited three point range and won't block 5 shots a game off the backboard. I would have to agree with most critics on these points. Okafor is not a flashy Amare Stoudemire type player, but he's a damn good post player that has a high basketball IQ, a great (GREAT) back to the…

This will probably be the last time until next years finals where LeBron is on a team that is actually getting points (unless the play the Spurs of course), so I am going to take it.

One says that we should celebrate them for being the first through the wall and prop them up to show that the world is supportive of the act. Another is that it should be accepted thoroughly and praised privately, but it should not turn into what is so often praise for the sake of praise and ignoring it to a degree is being the most accepting, because it is viewed as par for the course. I won’t delve too deep into which side seems best, but whether you ascribe to the former or the…

Gant went to high school in Wesley Chapel, Florida, but was born in Savannah, Georgia, keeping with the Braves tradition of gobbling up prospects from the Peach State.

Not just ones from Pakistan but peoples around the globe have shown their concerns regarding the same. And it all inflicted after the terrorist attack on Sri Lankan Cricketers in 2009. And since then it was only the last week, when the Zimbabwe cricket stepped in and played a duo series with Pakistan Cricket Team. After the 9/11 attacks on the twin towers in USA, Australian team refused to go and play any sport in Pakistan. Till then it was just Pakistan and soon India also joined the…

    Royals Blue

  • Royals Spanked by Tribe, 12-1.

    Sarah Davis
    29 Jul 2015 | 12:22 pm
    Corey Kluber finally beat the Kansas City Royals…. With the help of Jeremy Guthrie. In his career, Guthrie’s ERA in Jacobs/Progressive Field is north of seven, so today’s blowout was not a shock to most.   One of the best pitchers in baseball was on the hill today, so Ned Yost decided that one of the best hitters needed the day off. They finally managed one run in the ninth inning off of Corey Kluber, but it wouldn’t be enough, as the Indians poured on twelve runs.   Today’s outing might have been writing on the wall for Jeremy Guthrie. No matter who…
  • Chris Young Should Be Odd Man Out of Royals Rotation

    29 Jul 2015 | 8:58 am
      Royals new hired gun Johnny Cueto officially joined the Royals last night. To clear roster space, Joe Blanton, one day after recording his second save (this one the rare 3-inning variety) in three appearances (only two career saves), was shipped out, designated for assignment. Blanton, gave us more than we ever expected this season, producing a 3.89 ERA over 41 2/3 innings, including two good starts before two poor ones as he was forced into the rotation back in June. When the season began, imagining Blanton, who other than a brief stint in Triple-A Sacramento last year, was owning and…
  • WOW! Defense shines as Royals win 2-1

    Christopher Till
    28 Jul 2015 | 7:39 pm
    Johnny Cueto has the second best ERA since 2011 while pitching in a hitter’s ballpark in Cincinnati.  He now pitches in Kansas City and, with this defense, he may never allow another run. Eric Hosmer collected 3 hits while driving in 2, including the game winning home run with two outs in the top of the 9th, as the Royals took game two in Cleveland, 2-1.  With the win, the Royals move to 61-38 and 23 games above .500 for the first time since 1989.  They stand 8.5 games above Minnesota in 1st place in the AL Central. In the top of the 4th, Lorenzo Cain tripled on a play…
  • Royals Grab Zobrist

    28 Jul 2015 | 12:17 pm
    It was announced by Ken Rosenthal that the Royals have acquired Oakland A's super-utility man Ben Zobrist in exchange for minor league pitchers Sean Manaea and Aaron Brooks. Ben Zobrist immediately provides an upgrade to the Royals both offensively and defensively and in many ways fills some of the void left by the injured Alex Gordon. For now, Zobrist has the ability to fill many holes. With experience in the outfield and infield both, he can provide flexibility for the Royals in many ways by covering a number of defensive positions. He also sports a lifetime .784 OPS and has an .801 OPS…
  • Rock and Royal: Hosmer and Morales Lift Royals Over Tribe

    Sarah Davis
    27 Jul 2015 | 7:59 pm
    The Cleveland Indians are not good. There are no ways around it, and no ways to deny it. The Kansas City Royals are very good, and they got even better yesterday. There are also no ways to deny that.   Since the news broke yesterday that Johnny Cueto would become a Kansas City Royal, the Royals have outscored their opponents 14-6. Eric Hosmer and Kendrys Morales did their part to make that feat happen, as they combined for eight RBIs tonight in a 9-4 victory in the series opener with the Cleveland Indians.   His first start against Cleveland didn’t go so well for Edinson…

    Who Is The Inventor Of Tiki-Taka?   Tiki-taka is the most successful football tactic of the last decade. But few people know who is the real inventor of tike-taka. Most people assume that Pep Guardioala invented the tiki-taka, but this is completely false because Guardiola’s Barcelona perfected a tactic that has been known since late 1960s. The real inventor of tiki-taka is the late Romanian head-coach Angelo Niculescu. If you really don’t believe me, you can check UEFA’s acknowledgement regarding Niculescu’s contribution to the development of football. The…

Wright has induced an impressive 52.1 percent ground ball rate, something that’s his bread and butter. 2015 has been an…
  • Members Of The Lisbon Lions Will Unveil A Fitting Tribute In Belfast To The Man Who Saved Barcelona From Bankruptcy

    Daniel Caw
    29 Jul 2015 | 4:08 pm
    A committee has been formed in Belfast to create a moving tribute to the Irishman who saved Barcelona from bankruptcy in the early 1900s. After a storied and controversial playing career, most notably at Belfast Celtic, Patrick O’Connell emigrated to Spain in 1922 to take up a post as manager of Racing Santander, before leading Real Betis to their only La Liga title in 1935. O’Connell then left to manage Barcelona during the Spanish civil war, with the club mired in debt and unable to compete with the power and unlimited wealth of General Franco’s Real Madrid. With football…

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:57 pm
    It’s official, ladies and gentlemen: we’ve found the worst tackle of 2015. Rapid Vienna faced AFC Ajax in the Ernst Happel Stadion on Wednesday night in their 3rd qualifying round Champions League tie. And the undoubted lowlight of the clash was this so-called tackle on debutant 18-year-old defender Jaïro Riedewald by Rapid’s Stefan Schwab. It’s not known why there was bad blood between Riedewald and Austrian under-21 international Schwab. The match ended 2-2 after the Dutch giants threw away a potentially golden two-goal away lead. Anyway, here’s the tackle. If…
  • Leigh Griffiths Shares Disappointment After Ronny Deila Confirms Toothache Kept Him Out of Celtic Qualifier

    29 Jul 2015 | 2:45 pm
    Leigh Griffiths missed out on the chance to blast Celtic into the next round of the Champions League – all because of toothache. The Scottish striker had to settle for a place on the bench as Ronny Deila’s men huffed and puffed their way to a 1-0 win over Azerbaijan champions Qarabag at Celtic Park tonight. Despite scoring in their victory over Stjarnan last week and doing the same in the friendly win against Rennes at the weekend, Deila went for Nadir Ciftci instead of Griffiths. Griffiths did manage to play some part in the game – replacing Nir Bitton with 22 minutes to go…

    Tennis Updates: On the 28th of July Mardy Fish faced Dudi Sela in the first round of the Atlanta Open. This was Fish’s 2nd match in the past 24 months and the first for the summer. Currently ranked outside of the top 1000, Fish did not succeed in winning the match and Sela needed 1 hour and 49 minutes to beat him – 6 – 4, 6 – 4. The box score says Fish managed to serve 5 aces and 3 double faults, was broken 3 times, and only converted one of his 8 break points. However, this match was about so much more than statistics. Most of all, this match was about a husband and father on 33…

    Yesterday the big news was that NFL upheld its decision to suspend New England Patriots quarterback for four games after a lengthy and costly investigative process.  Today it’s the war of words waged on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell from Patriots owner, Robert Kraft. Kraft ripped the NFL on Wednesday for upholding Tom Brady’s four-game suspension, calling it “unfathomable” and saying, “I was wrong to put my faith in the league,” Kraft said, saying that he felt it would help exonerate Brady he doing so.  He further expressed disappointment in the…

    Quite often, when I stumble across an historical event, I wonder what would be different in the world if that event never happened. For example: In World War I, Japan was an ally of England, France and the United States. Yet during the Versailles Treaty that ended the war, the Japanese were, in essence, snubbed and failed to gain anything close to the “spoils of war”. Had they been treated as an equal partner in this treaty, would they have still gone on their imperialistic march which led to the involvement of the United States in World War II? Obviously, it is impossible to re-write…

In a move just reported hours ago, Braxton has made a great and dangerous team even better. Miller can take a handoff or pitch or go out and catch passes, even return punts…  Miller claims he’ll still be playing some quarterback, too, but that remains to be determined. One thing for certain… he can still run. This makes perfect sense and also makes a decision for Coach Meyer that must have been creating some havoc…

After the game I thanked her for her enthusiasm, and she blushed, “Well, I do get carried away sometimes.” I left it at that, knowing her screaming wasn’t meant in a bad way. However, there are parents who cross the line — they go demeaning. Negative. Their screams are hurtful. And disruptive. Human voices elevate for one…

  • 2015: The Year of the Ox

    Harry Harris
    22 Jul 2015 | 2:48 pm
    His Arsenal career might have only flickered to date, but with a good pre-season and an opening on the right, the Ox can push onto become a vital starter this season… There’s a weird feeling amongst Arsenal fans at the moment. Recent summers of head-scratching, manager-slagging and player-selling have given way to comparative calm and, dare I say, optimism. As well as the obvious brilliance of Alexis, Mesut Ozil seems to have won round a lot of his (frankly, idiotic) doubters, Francis Coquelin has maybe made his manager re-think the idea of signing a defensive midfielder, and Theo…

    Ed Szczepanski/USA TODAY Sports No, Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t challenge J.J. Watt to an epic gun battle set in the future (although that would be pretty cool). Rather, the Governator challenged the reigning defensive player of the year to something better: squats. Yep. What other kind of challenge would you expect from a former Mr. Olympia champion? A spelling contest? Ha! Watt didn’t shy away from the challenge of doing 50 squat reps… after dinner. I’m sure his colon wasn’t feeling in the best shape, but Watt did finish off 51 reps before the main course…

Gronkowski teamed up with Funny or Die and Charlotte McKinney to bring to life the world’s best erotic fan fiction. Of course, the acting is bad, the dialogue is poor, but at least the Gronk is spiking things in a way never before seen. Check it out for yourself. It’s a touching film. Tear.

But it appears that Mr. Johnson is just as mortal as us… it’s just that he apparently doesn’t feel pain when he’s hurt. Johnson posted a pretty gruesome video to his Instagram on Tuesday that would make the average man squeal and pass out if something similar happened to him. It appears that Johnson dislocated and mangled his precious finger, and could only laugh about it. One can only hope that this is just a prank, and that no…

    So, late last night in between Dirty Jobs reruns and a barking dog keeping me up, Troy Taormina/USA TODAY Sports I knew that there was some kind of disturbance in the force. Apparently that disturbance was the entire Los Angeles Clippers organization flying to Houston to get DeAndre Jordan back on their team. It looks like it worked. In one of the weirdest free agency I can remember, the Clippers pulled off the inevitable by getting their star center back after he had already verbally committed to the Dallas Mavericks for $80 million over four years.

    For as long as I can remember I have been on a quest to find a career I was passionate about that could also provide me with a sustainable income. In college I undertook four separate internships. None of them lit my fire. Upon graduating I accepted a position in network news. It was a prestigious and promising career path, yet it left me feeling unfulfilled. Graduating from Montclair State University in 2008 During my time at the network, I discovered pole dancing. I would go to class after working long overnight shifts. I found refuge and solace in the escape. I can recall envying my…
  • How Improve Your Back Flexibility in 5 simple steps

    Ermelinda Maglione
    24 Jul 2015 | 2:33 pm
    Recently, I asked a few of my pole dancer friends what their flexibility goals were and almost all of them responded: Arches! Improved arch flexibility is my pole wish too and I constantly wonder: why wasn’t I born with a contortionist’s body? I have good flexibility in my legs, my splits are perfect, but my back seems to be made of stone. So, last year I decided that I was going to work on my arch. My goal is to someday be able to do the needle split, even if it takes me decades to achieve it. Bad Kitty® Brand Ambassador Amy Hazel in a Needle Bad Kitty® Brand Ambassador Amy Hazel I…
  • Being an “Indie” Poler

    Pippi Parnasse

            “Where do you train?” That’s one of the first questions that polers ask each other when they are introduced, and for many of us it’s not an easy one to answer. I guess most people in my situation describe themselves as “self-taught,” but I feel that that discredits a lot of people who helped me along the way. I learned from friends. I learned from aerial acrobatics instructors. I learned from my dance and Alexander Technique teachers in college. I learn from other instructors who give me pointers at pole jams. I learn from the classes I drop in on. I…

  • 5 Ways To Get Naked If You Are Over 40

    Bob Zamora
    19 Jul 2015 | 11:37 pm
    Based on my own unscientific observations I would have to say that there are at least 70% more female pole dancers under the age of 40 than over 40. When it comes to men over 50, the percentage of pole dancers has to be in the single digits.  When we dress for pole class we dress for less. We need exposed skin on our pole points of contact. There just isn’t any way around physics. At the same time there isn’t any way around the way the younger dancers look in typical pole wear. This is especially apparent in the more experienced dancers. We have all witnessed the amazing mental and…

If you fell in love with hoops culture back then, as most NBA and NBL fans did, then you could be forgiven for believing that Converse was as fundamental to the modern game as Larry Bird and Magic Johnson.

Right on cue, Michael Jordan began his ascension. Superboy would become Superman.But in this injustice league, legacies are often based on perception. Look at Karl Malone: has a former superstar ever been so disparaged for his performance, post career?Time is a strange beast.For a kid in 1989, the NBA was unmatched fantasy and showstopping entertainment, and as such, is often viewed…

    Would you rather flip a coin or give Dwight Howard the chance to make one free throw to decide if you die? You would be crazy to give Dwight Howard your life fate over a coin flip. Some basketball players aren’t meant for making free throws. Just like some baseball players aren’t met to pitch. Intentionally fouling Dwight Howard so he has to shoot free throws is like a baseball team deciding which player they want to pitch to. In that case they would pick the pitcher who NEVER works on batting. NBA teams can pick on the players that NEVER practice free throws. I’m sure there…

    NBA With one year of experience under her belt, Becky Hammon is already being considered a legit NBA head coaching candidate after her recent championship victory with the San Antonio Spurs. The summer league is only seven games, but she made a lot of noise with her performance during that time. Becky Hammon is probably a name you guys have been hearing recently. Wherever you saw it or read about it, its a big move in sports, and a huge move for the society around us. There are many people among us that still have that conservative degrading mentality towards women and success they attempt…

    The Three Four

  • Devil’s Advocate: Gretzky Not the Greatest of All Time

    [The D.A. is a genre within the Three Four that plays the Devil’s Advocate when it comes to sports and generally unpopular perspectives. With the intention of creating discussion and instilling new perspective within the community, the D.A. might not be indicative of the author’s true opinion, but merely a written stance to propagate talk in the world of sports and sports history.] Every decade a select few players enter and leave their respective sports with a trail blaze in their tracks. From old school players, such as Johnny Unitas and Babe Ruth, to more modern legends, like Michael…

    Congratulations football fans! Once again we have endured the worst part of the sports year (baseball season), and are quickly approaching the beginning of the next football year as rookies begin reporting to camp tomorrow. Yes, God is good. But once again we find our focus drawn to fickle things that do not deserve the attention that they are getting. Tom “Cute Boots” Brady (I give all credit to he who coined this nickname) is still the number one headline with the “Deflategate” scandal. Why oh why won’t Roger Goodell let this one go? His actions have been wrong from the start, and…

    Adrian Mutu, the former Juventus, Chelsea, and Fiorentina striker sounded off on his old teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic recently.  Ibrahimovic and Mutu were teammates at Juventus and would often share a room together during their away matches.  Well, during one of those away matches, the two strikers went to sleep…and what happened next is perhaps the most Zlatan story of them all. Adrian Mutu goes on to explain, Zlatan’s the best. When we were team mates at Juventus, we used to sleep in the same room before games. One night, he woke up. Ibra told me: ‘Adi, wake up! I had a…

    Mexico national team manager Miguel Herrera has allegedly been fired after an incident with a Mexican journalist. After Mexico’s 3-1 victory against Jamaica in the Gold Cup finals, the team was scheduled to fly back to Mexico. Herrera reportedly punched a TV reporter in the neck after getting into an argument at the Philadelphia airport.  The reporter has been a notoriously tough critic of the Mexican coach, especially during Mexico’s run in the Gold Cup. Herrera has had many incidents in the past, and this seemed to be the final straw for the Mexican Football Federation.

    There have been a few big trades since we last discussed the deadline. The GM’s were almost at a stalemate up until last Thursday. All it took was a simple, yet effective, move to set off a series of trades. We will discuss the trades that have occurred so far and what they mean to the prospective teams. Scott Kazmir: Kazmir has been hindered by lingering injuries this year, but when he was starting, his numbers were impressive. He currently holds a 2.38 ERA and went 7 scoreless innings in his first start for his new team, the Astros. The Astros did have to give up one of their top catching…

    View image | Atlanta Braves pitcher Alex Wood has been rumored to be heading out west to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a trade that would send Hector Olivera to the Braves. I thought that Atlanta was going to receive Julio Urias or Yasiel Puig when I first saw the reports coming out that Atlanta was dealing Wood and top prospect Jose Peraza. Soon reality set in as I saw that Atlanta would receive Olivera, Paco Rodriguez, Zachary Bird and the 34th pick in next year's draft for Wood, Peraza and Jim Johnson.  I thought it was a joke, a cruel horrendous joke.  Are we really giving…
