    1 Apr 2015 | 3:08 pm
    Serena Williams abused her racket, scolded herself and even made angry faces at the sun. The seven-time Key Biscayne champion overcame her annoyance and shaky play Wednesday for her 700th career victory, beating Sabine Lisicki 7-6 (4), 1-6, 6-3 to reach the semifinals of the Miami Open. Williams won despite an unreliable serve, a poor second set and 51 unforced errors. ''I just told myself, I'm not serving the way I normally serve and hitting the way I normally would hit, so at this point all I can do is just fight and try to give 200 percent instead of 100 percent.''

Instead, Bradley was allowed to tell jurors about how Hernandez had said he had a difficult time trusting people, including his friends.

  • 49ers: The Curse of Jim Harbaugh?

    Mike Presley
    20 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The San Francisco 49ers were a goal line stand away from winning their sixth Super Bowl back in 2012. Jim Harbaugh took the team to the Super Bowl in only his second season as Head Coach. Now in 2015 the 49ers are looking at rebuilding.  While you can look at the positives of signing Torrey Smith to replace Michael Crabtree, the negatives are just through the roof. It seems as if Jed York was blessed with the gift of Jim Harbaugh, and when he didn’t want it, he fired him. I’m sorry, I meant “mutually parted ways” with Harbaugh. Thus the Curse of Jim Harbaugh was born.
  • NFL Free Agency: Overrated Free Agents of 2015

    Mike Presley
    6 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    It seems like it was yesterday the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, yet here we are days away from Free Agency. NFL Free Agency, one of the big reasons why the NFL has so much parity. Even with the cap increase of ten million from last season, teams are struggling to get under the cap by the new league year. Each year players are let go and new players are signed, as teams look to fill a void before the start of the draft. Though, buyer beware as a player may not be who you think your getting. You see it every year where teams over pay to lure free agents, but also they just simply…
  • Why the Bills won their trade with the Eagles

    Jordan Hall
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:29 pm
    The Philadelphia Eagles traded All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy for Buffalo Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso. Without a doubt a trade that came out of nowhere. Rex Ryan is certainly trying to make a splash in his first offseason as Bills head coach and without a first-round draft pick in this year’s draft, Ryan is doing whatever he can to elevate his offense. In his five season as a running back C.J Spiller has only rushed for over a thousand yards once and has never started a full season. He has shown signs of being an All-Pro but last season he only played in a total of nine games due to…

Was I surprised running back Marshawn Lynch didn’t get the ball? Yes. Was everyone else on the field? Yessss. Element of surprise tremendously effective? Yesssssssssss. Did it work? Um. Not so much.

  • The Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning debate may finally come to an end

    Jordan Hall
    1 Feb 2015 | 7:34 am
    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.

According to Hugh Kellenberger of The Clarion-Ledger, the team’s general manager had been aware of Rocker’s infamous SI article, but none of the former pitcher’s ensuing bigotry (which includes speaking out against MLB’s diversity initiatives, and inferring that the Holocaust would not have happened if Jewish people had had guns.)…

So how do you attract fans to Citizen’s Bank Ballpark this summer? Hard booze is one option. A nine-patty cheeseburger from Wayback burger appears to be another. There’s a very important question here. NBC Philaelphia describes the “Wayback Triple Cheeseburger” as so: The super sandwich from the Newark, Delaware-based Wayback Burgers packs 2,200 calories…

    MEET BILL CALLAHAN, THE WORST CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTOR IN THE WORLD My favorite Bill Callahan story is the one where he led the Raiders to an AFC title, found out he'd be facing former Oakland coach Jon Gruden and the NFC Champion Tampa Bay Bucs, decided not to change his audibles even though he was using the same system Gruden had overseen, and then watched his offense throw five picks, take five sacks, and give up three defensive touchdowns as the Bucs won by 27. The major drawback to this story is that it may not be even slightly true. The nice thing about that drawback is that it…

But he can't do any of those things, because the camera -- controlled remotely, mind you -- is still on him, just as it has been for the last 23 minutes. And Roger Goodell is not about to admit the 2015 NFL Draft has completely fallen apart. So he stands off to the side, smiling thinly and waiting.

    A DEPRESSING NOTE ABOUT A DEPRESSING THING That's my favorite question Holly asks here in a long list of unanswered questions: why the hell did Alabama even bother with Jonathan Taylor in the first place? Because he's good at football isn't a good enough answer. If you assume Saban thought they could set him up in an environment where he would not regress back to domestic violence, then Alabama weirdly assumed they could do what fully funded domestic violence programs often fail to do, and that they did so without asking his former coach or the Athens D.A. about Taylor or his case.

Every year is different, and while the list changes ever year it’s also getting shorter too, which is kind of sad. Just means I’m getting old, too. A few to chew on; Doug Bochtler, Dbacks, pitching coach for Low A team in South Bend. From the AFL in ‘94, fun guy.

    Well, that was fast. Thirteen games in just under four weeks goes quickly, especially with seven games in the first nine days. If there’s a silver lining from not going to the ball park anymore its the surest sign the season is about to start. The Brewers started this spring season with two straight road games, with the home opener against the Dodgers on March first. I missed this game due to my wife’s birthday, so my first game back in the booth was on Monday, March 3rd against the Cardinals. Now, in case you haven’t heard, the Brewers adopted this stray mutt that wandered…
  • Sixth Annual Dugout Central Challenge

    17 Mar 2014 | 8:28 am
    Who are the best teams? Who are the worst teams? And just how good or bad are they? Members of the Dugout Central staff and readers are again challenged to predict the number of wins in the regular season for each of the thirty major league baseball teams in the Sixth Annual Dugout Central Challenge. It requires an in-depth knowledge of all thirty teams to accurately predict the number of wins for every team – a lot more than for picking division winners and a wild card team for each league. Relative strengths within the division, within the league and between leagues also come into play.

  • Ryan Reynolds Confirms ‘Deadpool’ Is Gunning For An R Rating, No Joke

    Andrew Husband
    1 Apr 2015 | 3:30 pm
    Earlier today, JoBlo reported the upcoming Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds would be aiming for a PG-13 rating, a possibility we previously discussed in September. It was an all-too-obvious April Fools Day ruse, but the slight taste of possibility underpinning it was enough to enrage a few gullible fans this morning. Well, it’s official; Deadpool has succumbed to a PG-13 rating. A source at Fox has confirmed to us that the Ryan Reynolds led X-Men spinoff flick will indeed carry that all-encompassing PG-13, despite the outcry for a more hardcore R-rated take on the Merc with a Mouth.
  • RIP Gary Dahl, The Guy Who Made A Ton Of Money On The Pet Rock

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Wikimedia Commons As terrible as the selfie stick (and its users) might be, at least its ultimate purpose is a practical one. Most inexplicably popular fads aren’t — a fact we’re reminded of today with the news that Gary Dahl, the man responsible for the pet rock, has died at the age of 78. According to the New York Times, Dahl passed away over a week ago on Monday, March 23rd. Originally an advertising copywriter, he is best known for the “Pet Rock” — a hit toy from the 1970s that’s literally nothing more than what it sounds like. So how did a…
  • Tom Hanks’ Wannabe Rapper Son Is Trying Desperately To Feud With Howard Stern

    Getty Image For the last few years, we’ve had a really good time making fun of Tom Hanks’ son, Chester M. Hanks, who you might know better as “rapper” and “bad boy” Chet Haze. A graduate of Northwestern University, Chet Haze once tried very hard to promote his reputation as being the son of a wealthy and beloved A-list actor who didn’t want to use his father’s name to succeed in the music industry. And, of course, when that didn’t work, he started going by Chet Hanx. None of it really worked, though, as he built a small following on Twitter and his biggest YouTube success…

  • Aubrey Plaza Had A Pirate For A Roommate While Living In Ghana

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:20 pm
    Many of us have scary roommate stories, but were any of those roommates actual pirates? While appearing on The Late Late Show, Aubrey Plaza told James Corden and fellow guests, The Odd Couple stars Matthew Perry and Thomas Lennon, that a former roommate of hers when she was studying abroad in Ghana was a pirate. A real pirate. Is Plaza joking? Is she always joking? Is she always serious? It’s so hard to tell, but if we take her words as gospel truth, make sure that your blonde, hard-partying, treasure-hunting roommate is just a lot of fun or is planning a mass pillage in your village.

    Via @Chris_Hanks5 The five-year, $42 million contract that the Eagles gave to DeMarco Murray to lure him away from their NFC East rivals was too much for the Dallas Cowboys to match. Dallas had reportedly only offered the running back a four-year, $21 million deal. The Cowboys might have been able to offer more money to the 2014 NFL rushing champion had they worked out a pay cut with Tony Romo, who evidently was very willing to make that happen. “DeMarco ended up asking me, ‘Why don’t you take a pay cut?'” Romo said while appearing on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on…

    If you like basketball to be predictable, with all the power teams dominating, the 2015 Women's NCAA Tournament has been for you. Connecticut, Notre Dame, South Carolina and Maryland, all four No. 1 seeds, are playing in the Final Four.  Even though some drama is good, it actually benefits this year's tournament to have all four basketball powers converge on Tampa, Florida, to determine the national champion. Let's face it: If UConn is going to lose, it would happen to a team like Maryland, Notre Dame or South Carolina.  No other schools are in the same arena as the Lady Huskies, so…

The former Miami Hurricanes wide receiver can move quickly, which isn’t exactly shocking information for those who caught even a passing glance at his 2014 season. After all, a passing glance is usually all Dorsett offered as he whizzed by defensive backs. But there’s an unofficial metric for speed I’ll call the “whoa” reflex. It doesn’t matter how many times you see a player accelerate and reach top speed; the reaction is…
  • Penalties to Ryan Newman and His Team Show NASCAR Is Serious About New Rules

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:02 pm
    Tuesday’s heavy penalties to the No. 31 Sprint Cup team for doctoring its tires in races should more than prove NASCAR means business about cracking down on cheating. Unlike the way it’s been in the past, it’s no longer wink-win, nudge-nudge and even blindly looking the other way at times. Coupled with the elaborate video and scoring system implemented at the start of the season to more greatly—and fairly—determine pit road violations, Tuesday’s actions showed NASCAR is serious about being serious when it comes to teams trying to pull a fast one. In case…

    31 Mar 2015 | 3:19 pm
    NASCAR levied harsh penalties against Ryan Newman's race team Tuesday after determining Richard Childress Racing manipulated the tires Newman used at Auto Club Speedway in California. There had been rampant speculation throughout the Sprint Cup garage that teams were drilling tiny holes in their tires to allow air to escape during a race. The process is known as ''bleeding tires'' and NASCAR last week at Martinsville Speedway warned crew chiefs about the penalties that would be levied against any team caught. Newman was one of four drivers to have his tires taken by NASCAR after the March 22…

Here’s the latest: Mets GM Sandy Alderson acknowledged that the club has had conversations with both Lagares and first baseman Lucas Duda, as Mike Vorkunov of the Star-Ledger reports (Twitter links).

Out of options and a roster spot, Puello has long seemed destined to be headed either to another organization or off of the Mets’ 40-man. Puello hits the wire on his 24th birthday. He reached Triple-A last year, slashing .252/.355/.393 in 371 plate appearances with seven home runs and 13 stolen bases. Though primarily a corner outfielder, Puello has seen at least some time in center in the minors. Presumably, the Mets would have worked out a deal if Puello was in high demand, but…

The news has put a significant damper on a draft class that was already receiving less-than-stellar reviews. Of course, we have seen some added willingness on the part of teams to take risks on players coming off of a TJ procedure.

    The Royals have re-signed infielder Rafael Furcal, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports on Twitter. Furcal was released by Kansas City yesterday. It appears that the move was designed to get Furcal in camp when he signed initially while preventing the Royals from being obligated to him for a $100K Article XX(B) retention bonus. Furcal does not appear on the list of Article XX(B) free agents I compiled recently, because he signed after that list was posted, but he did in fact qualify for free agency pursuant to that provision and therefore was entitled to its built-in protections.

    My Fellow Cyclists:There is a creak in our metaphorical bottom bracket, and if we don't address it now it's only a matter of time before we squash our genitals on the Top Tube of Catastrophic Failure.So what is this creaking?  Well, a California senator has introduced a bill for a mandatory bicycle helment law, and our beloved cycling media--which should be standing united against such nonsense in the interest of cyclists everywhere--is instead entertaining it, and in at least one case actually supporting it.Now I don't care what your feelings on helment use are.  Maybe you're one…
  • Spring Has Sprung, And I Think It Sprained Something

    26 Mar 2015 | 9:11 am
    It's spring, which means the Human-Powered Daddy Shuttle (a.k.a. the "Smugness Flotilla"--or, according to the company that sells it, a "Surly Big Dummy") is running more frequently now:I believe I took delivery of this bicycle sometime around March or April of 2010, which makes the bike five (5) years old this spring.  This is well beyond what most of the cycling media considers an appropriate period for a "long-term review."  In fact, I don't even think the cycling media considers it acceptable to own a bicycle for five years.  For the rest of us, however, five years means a…

The first thing you will notice about the Furrow Slimfold wallet is it's unique texture on the outside which is unlike anything I have ever seen before. Second is that the wallet is made from Italian top grade leather, so you know that durability won't be an issue; something that is important for me considering I use my wallet everyday.

    1 Apr 2015 | 6:46 pm
    The Miami Hurricanes battle the Stanford Cardinal in the NIT championship at MSG on Thursday. The Stanford Cardinal have generally played well at both ends of the floor during the NIT and did so once again  as their defense put  the clamps on Old Dominion in a 67-60 semifinal victory. The Cardinal settled for a six point lead at the break despite blowing a 21 point bulge. The Monarchs were limited to just 34% shooting which negated a whopping 22 extra looks at the basket with a 3-19 effort on threes hurting them. Stanford connected on 48.7% of their looks with eight more free throws being…

    It looked like the Florida Panthers were going to inch one step closer toward a potential playoff berth, but instead their defeat makes that look all but impossible. Florida had their chance against the team they were chasing, traveling to Boston to play a Bruins club with a four point lead for the final wild card berth. The Panthers overcame an early Boston goal, and even took a 2-1 lead with them into the third period. Everything was going great until midway through the third when Ryan Spooner cashed in his 8th goal of the season to even the score. Florida really needed to find a way to win…

    Things haven’t been going well for the New York Rangers over the last week, but the club is hoping that Tuesday’s match in Winnipeg was a turning point. New York knew coming in that they were going to face another difficult challenge from an opponent that was fighting for a playoff berth, and that’s exactly what they got. The Jets were all over the place in the early going of this game, and they jumped out in front of the Rangers 1-0 just 3:16 into the opening period. The Rangers were respond, evening things up on Mats Zuccarello’s 15th goal of the season, but Winnipeg was the…
  • 2015 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Shane Ray

    Shane Ray School: Missouri Tigers Height: 6’3” Weight: 245 Position: Defensive End Career Stats: 82 tackles, 34 tackles for loss, 19 sacks and five forced fumbles. Strengths: Shane Ray is one of the more aggressive and disruptive pass rushers I’ve seen in a while, and he accomplished this in the SEC where he’s playing some of the top offensive linemen each week. Ray’s first step, speed off the edge and pure quickness makes him a scary matchup for anyone. Ray uses his hands well and plays with great pad level. Ray also showed the ability to drop back into coverage and is one of the…

Strengths: The first thing you notice about Danny Shelton is his massive frame, as this is one tough customer who is extremely tough to move out of the way. Shelton is very disruptive, extremely strong and usually demands double teams on most plays. While the size is intriguing, Danny Shelton also moves well for a big guy and has shown the ability to chase the quarterback once or twice. Shelton is the perfect player for the 3-4 nose…

    Imagine an activity that your kids could do after school every day that would improve their brain’s ability to make better decisions and solve problems.  Online cognitive drills? Special tutors? Actually, researchers at the University of Illinois have found that just an hour of fun, active play not only gets kids in better shape but significantly improves their cognitive functioning.Plenty of previous studies have shown the link between fitness and better academic performance in the classroom but it wasn’t clear if this was a cause and effect relationship or just that smarter kids…
  • Training Your Eyes To Hit That Curveball

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

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

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

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…

As the Dallas Mavericks pre- and post-game show host for TXA21, part of the Dallas/Fort Worth TV networks, I covered the Mavericks like a wet blanket. I didn’t have a strong understanding of Twitter strengths at the time so I would tweet play-by-play. “Dirk 1-legged turn-around fadeaway.” “Parker drives the lane.” “Mavs up 12”. UGH. Thankfully, I quickly learned that’s not the best practice for sharing knowledge on this powerful…

Ranger had taken the first two games in the series, so they were looking to sweep their first conference series.

I’m not referring to Miggy reaching 500 doubles; he’ll need 36. I’m talking about the average MLB salary reaching $4.3 million. Another sign of the times, for the first time since 2008, Justin Verlander will not be starting on Opening Day for the Tigers. The Tigers gave the ball to David Price. Last season was a season for underdogs. The Pirates had a second winning season and made the…

    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.

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…

  • UConn’s dominance is a drag

    Sue Favor
    31 Mar 2015 | 11:01 pm
    Columnist John Smallwood is right on the money with this piece: Dominant UConn is taking all the excitement out of women’s basketball It’s always risky to make a foregone conclusion of a sporting event before the title game is played, much less the semifinals, but UConn winning its record 10th title is about as solid a lock as you will ever get….. Still, being great does not necessarily mean being interesting, and, through no fault of their own, the greatness of the Huskies has made NCAA women’s basketball unappealing. Unless you are an alumnus or fan of Connecticut,…

Gampel Pavilion to watch UConn’s women’s basketball squad take on South Carolina in what is set to be a battle of the No. 1-ranked Gamecocks and the No. 2 Huskies—a matchup expected to be a close-fought showdown between the two best teams in the NCAA.

    Here goes nothing. I'm not predicting who wins shootouts or not, so this is regulation points only. Add in six points to every team if you want to give them all an average number of shootout wins. Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

  • No autographs during play: BCCI

    9 Mar 2015 | 2:58 am
    From children to adults, no fan is immune to the thrill of getting an autograph from their favourite sportsperson. In fact, it’s a common sight to see fans beseeching cricketers fielding on the boundary for a quick autograph. Most players are happy to oblige, knowing that a scrawled signature can often be a souvenir that will be cherished for a lifetime. However, this link between cricketers and fans is set to be severed, if the BCCI has its way. “We have asked cricketers not to give autographs while the match is on, during the IPL, Champions League T20 and all other…

    HAMILTON: The surprise package in this World Cup has been the Indian bowling. Nobody gave this attack a chance going into the tournament, especially after the poor show in the ODIs last year and the tri-series in Australia. But all that has turned around in the last four games and former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is pleasantly surprised. “Honestly, it has come as a surprise to me. I didn’t expect this bowling line-up to deliver the way they have done so far,” Ganguly said in a chat with Indian journalists at the City Centre on Sunday evening. While the speeds of 145 kmph…

  • Can Buchholz Finally Get to 30 Starts This Season?

    Matt O'Donnell
    28 Mar 2015 | 7:49 am
    Clay Buchholz has had a pretty good spring and pitched well yesterday except for one bad inning where he gave up a base clearing double to Pedro Ciriaco.  It looks like John Farrell will tap Buchholz to be the opening day starter now that Lester is pitching in the Windy City.  Can Buchholz finally get over the 30 games started barrier that has eluded him his entire career? In his eight years as a starting pitcher with the Red Sox he has come close three times:  2010 – 28 starts, 2012 – 29 starts, and 2014 – 28 starts.  In his other five seasons his highest number of…
  • Brian Johnson – Another Rookie to Watch

    Michael Passanisi
    28 Mar 2015 | 7:31 am
    In is Red Sox Notebook column on Monday, Peter Abraham details some injury issues among Red Sox starters. Clay Buchholz- time on DL for 5 consecutive years. Joe Kelly- yet to make more than 17 starts in a major league season. Justin Masterson- injury-plagued 2014. These numbers would seem to make one and possibly two “extra starters” necessary. One of the possibilities would be 24-year-old lefthander Brian Johnson. Since his high school years on Cocoa Beach, Florida, Johnson has piled up stats, both as a pitcher and hitter. In 08 and 09, he was the Florida Today Baseball Player of…
  • Eduardo Rodriguez – A Man to Watch

    Michael Passanisi
    20 Mar 2015 | 8:09 am
    A few weeks ago, the Red Sox rotation appeared set. However, cracks are beginning to show. In a 14-5 loss on March 15, projected starters Justin Masterson and Wade Miley were hit hard. Masterson was touched for 7 hits and 6 runs in 3 2/3, while Miley surrendered 6 hits and 4 runs in 4 innings. Both Masterson and Miley have 6-plus ERA’s this spring. Joe Kelly’s is over 11 and he has a sore arm. Even with Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello having good springs, the feeling is that the Sox may have “a bunch of 3rd and 4th starters”. I don’t think Cole Hamels in coming.

    Michael Passanisi

    Last fall, Red Sox prospect Garin Cecchini had reason to be optimistic. Third base had been an inconsistent positon for the team in 2014, with Will Middlebrooks, Xander Bogearts, and Brock Holt playing there at times. But there was really no regular third-sacker. A Louisiana native, Cecchini comes from a baseball family. His brother Gavin is a promising shortstop in the Mets organization. His father is a long time high school baseball coach. The 23-year-old lefty hitter, was signed out of high school in the 2010 draft. There has never been any doubt about his hitting potential. Making stops…

    Every year it seems, a young player in Red Sox spring training excites fans and writers. Two years ago it was Jackie Bradley Jr. Last year it was Xander Bogearts. This year-Mookie Betts. But 5 seasons ago, there was a 20-year-old who possibly was better than all of them. Ryan Kalish, born in 1968, had some local roots. Both of his parents came from Dorchester. He was born in California and grew up in Shrewsbury, NJ. From junior high on, he attracted attention. As a freshman, he struck out 10 in his first varsity start. The following year, he threw a no-hitter while batting .507 and stealing…

In the first Sunday home game of the season for Real Salt Lake, the team was able to contain Sebastian Giovinco and walked away with a hard fought win. With notable national team players like Nick Rimando, Luis Gil, Alvario Saborio, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley missing, it was up to which team’s depth could handle the test. RSL’s bench proved to be the deciding factor. Normally this year, Luke Mulholland is the first man off the bench. With Luis Gil on international duties,…

  • Quarterback Fundamentals: Decision Making & The Decision Drill Run

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

The Gunners striker missed a good chunk of the first half of the campaign with a foot injury, but has been in good form in front of goal since returning to full fitness. Giroud is now looking to help Arsene Wenger’s side at least cement their third-placed standing in the league, as well as defending their…
  • De Gea says EPL really suits him

    MANCHESTER, April 1- Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea feels he is suited to the Premier League, which has “improved all aspects” of his game. The Spain international has been the standout performer for United over the past two seasons, leading to speculation of a big-money move to Real Madrid. But De Gea has suggested he is not ready to return to his homeland as the 24-year-old believes that England’s top flight is greatly aiding his development. “Truth be told, English football has changed me a great deal,” he told FIFA. “I’ve developed a…

    LONDON, April 1- Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla says he is aware of interest from Atletico Madrid, but insists he is happy at the Emirates Stadium. The Spaniard has long been linked with a move back to his homeland, with the current Primera Division champions reportedly keen on his signature. Cazorla has missed just a single game for the Gunners this season, netting seven goals along the way, and says he feels valued at Arsenal, although admitting that anything can happen in football. “I’ve heard [about Atletico’s interest], like everybody,” the midfielder told…

After the Heat beat the Celtics Tuesday, LeBron was asked about Durant again after Durant scored 46 points against the Portland Trailblazers.

Youth sports is its own unique culture, and I had certainly had no idea what I was getting into. I figured it couldn’t be very hard to stand on the sidelines or sit in the bleachers cheering for your kid.

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

The Falcons are 6 - 9 at home the last two seasons, the alleged time period of the infractions.

    After going four for four in last night's picks, which wasn't exactly rocket science, I venture into more difficult territory with a busted bracket in one region and the only remaining double digit seed in the other. But first, it's probably appropriate to make some comments about Thursday's action. All of that talk about West Virginia's press and tenacity lasted about three minutes into last night's game. The Mountaineers stumbled out of the gate and Kentucky made sure they stayed down. Not that it made a big difference, but perhaps West Virginia freshman Daxter Miler learned a bit of a…

    With my bracket in ruins, primarily because of the East Region where I have no chance to get additional points, I can now be totally objective when looking at the remaining games. Although it shouldn't be, the ACC getting five teams into the Sweet Sixteen has surprised some people. To me, I thought the Big 12 was really over-seeded in this tournament, so it is very surprising that they couldn't get more than two teams through to this point. With all of the upsets so far, it's a little hard to believe that there isn't more than the single double digit seed left, UCLA at 11 in the South Region.

In case you missed it, the University of North Carolina has been reeling the last couple of years from revelations that at least one academic department offered what amounted to sham classes that were designed to make it easier for student athletes to maintain their academic eligibility.

    Ty Palmer
    21 Mar 2015 | 1:28 am
    Offensive linemen are a very unique and special group. It is a fraternity to coach and/or play offensive line. We as a whole tend to stand up for and defend each other at all costs even if we do not know the other guy. The only thing we have to know is he is a lineman like me. This is what makes coaching the offensive line so special yet so challenging at the same time.

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

Even though they have only won seven games in two seasons, this team is headed in the right direction under the leadership of second-year Head Coach Gus Bradley and General Manager Dave Caldwell. Jacksonville has been very active this off-season in free agency, spending money on some talented players. The team’s offense has a tough road to travel after scoring a league-low 15.6 points-per-game in 2014 and allowing a franchise-high 71 sacks. Now the organization now must shore up some…

    After falling behind 3-0 just 14:47 into the game, the Washington Capitals had to play catch-up the rest of the way, eventually coming up short, 4-3. “Having opponents that force us to play a high level game can only help us,” Caps Head Coach Barry Trotz said to reporters about the tough remaining schedule his team has to face to finish out the regular season. “We have to really take care of that puck and not give talented teams any freebies. It seems like when we get into trouble, a lot of times, it’s self inflicted,” Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen said in the locker room.

His 10 points against Oregon set the bar high early on and it took him ten games to earn the starting spot at the center position, a role that he held for the next 19 games. But the freshman center tallied 10 points or more in just three games from January 1st until the end of the year, as health issues and improved competition limited his efficiency. Still, Doyle exhibited significant growth this…

He had a season-high nine assists against Syracuse in December — including a behind-the-back dish for a Ricky Doyle dunk — and polished off the evening with a go-ahead three-pointer…

    If you ever thought having your parents cheering you on at your high school or college games was embarrassing try being an NBA player with a wife that sits court side and can be heard a mile away. Some would say that the spousal support court side is great and encouraging while others would say it’s severely annoying. […]

  • FAITH & SPORTS MINUTE: The Elevated Coach

    27 Mar 2015 | 1:15 pm
    So far, March Madness has been fantastic with its impressive players and surprising teams. College basketball coaches continue to show their value by taking their teams deep into the tournament. What I find very interesting is the amount of respect top coaches receive – from fans, media, and players. When we think of a top program, we immediately think of the head coach. These coaches are honored, respected, admired…and in many ways glorified. We don’t seem to have any problem elevating these coaches. But, if it’s easy for us to have this deep respect for coaches, why does it…

    Ed Uszynski joins Bryce to discuss 49ers’ linebacker, Chris Borland, retiring from the NFL after one season because of concussion concerns. The guys also put these questions UNDER REVIEW:   Will there be a trend in other players leaving the NFL early? Should fans have compassion for players when we all experience danger in life? Should players who leave early be celebrated or criticized? Will  the NFL eventually go the way of boxing and soccer take over football? Will parents prevent their kids from playing football?   With a PhD in American Culture Studies,…
  • FAITH & SPORTS MINUTE: Paying Attention to Play Calls

    20 Mar 2015 | 1:57 pm
    With March Madness in full swing, watching the incredible amount of games coming down to the final play is a lot of fun. College basketball places a big emphasis on coaches and how involved they are throughout the whole game…especially at the end. The coach draws up plays, encourages the team, and points out what needs to be done in order to win. After the coach gives the plan, the players are supposed to go out and execute it. However, too often we see players run onto the floor and do their own thing – instead of complete the plays called by their coach. When it comes to life…

  • Sports Parenting Tip: How to overcome the battle of wills

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:19 am
    For a long time, THE hardest things about sports parenting for me was this… I’ve shared this image before, and touched up on the journey we all travel as sports parents. Maybe you know how it goes… You talk to your child about their softball goals and, as a parent, you can see exactly what they need to do to get there. What you envision for your child, the path you can see laid out ahead of them, looks like the path on the left (see image above). The challenge comes when your child seems absolutely hell bent on taking a route that looks like the right side of the image…

    About a year ago, my family was introduced to essential oils for the first time and loved it! I didn’t try it because I was pregnant with my youngest child. I knew I wanted to pick some up because the oils helped both my husband and my daughter with the muscles aches and pains from being an athlete. It took a while, but I finally got oils for our family and am SO glad I did! It’s such a great way to take better care of myself and my family.

  • Softball Coaching: Would you teach a whole team to slap?

    23 Mar 2015 | 4:00 am
    Would you teach a whole team to slap? No. If you happen to find yourself in the extremely rare situation of coaching an entire team where each player *may* use slapping within the next year or two, then maybe. Barring that, my answer is no. Here’s why… Just as I wouldn’t try to teach the whole team to pitch or block balls like a catcher, I wouldn’t teach an entire team to slap. If I wanted to work with some players on slapping, I’d start with the most athletic/fastest on the team. Often these players are one and the same. The fastest are also the most athletic…

Next up for the struggling side is Sri Lanka as they continue their battle to reach the quarter-finals of a tournament we know they won’t win. Best finish? With four teams qualifying from this group, it’s entirely possible that three wins over non-test playing opposition will see England reach the last eight. That’s not exactly going to instil too much confidence into a team that has done little to cheer its fans so far. The loss against Australia was bad enough as England’s bowlers were hit all over the…

    Goodbye friend. On Friday, Angel Nesbitt became the fourth baseball winner of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending). A few minutes after that was official he accepted my request to follow his private Instagram account. His reign off to a roaring start. But before he goes any further, it”s time to take a step back.

    After two surprise and swift eliminations, we’ve reached the conclusion of this year’s chase for the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending). Two competitors remain: outfielder Xavier Avery and pitcher Angel Nesbitt. Both have performed admirably and avoided the pitfuls — money, strippers, drugs, cars — that come with being a contender for the JMMA. The only way to settle this is to go back through our Sacred Seven rules, one by one. 1. The award has to go to someone I’ve never heard of. Check and check. 2. He must have at least an outside chance…

They were 8-2-0 in their last 10 games and sat second in the Atlantic Division, two points behind the NHL-leading Lightning with two games in hand. In the month and a half that followed, Detroit posted a barely playoff-worthy 5-3-2 record in its next 10 games then went 4-6-0 in the 10 after that. They now sit stuck at third in the Atlantic Division with 89 points, eight behind second-place Tampa Bay and 10 behind NHL leading Montreal. With 11 games remaining the Red Wings’ only motivation is…

  • LIU Post Wrestling Back on Mat
    12 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Things started off with a bang for the LIU Post wrestling program this season after the Pioneers beat Stony Brook, 47-3, in their first dual meet of the season. Then they won just three of the next 18 dual meets and finished 4-15 overall in their first season on the mat since 1988 when the program was disbanded. The Pioneers finished eighth out of 15 schools at the NCAA Division II Super Regional Tournament during the last weekend of February. Graduate senior Chris DiIorio won the 197-pound final. He’ll continue on to the NCAA Division II championships in St. Louis on March 13. Between Nov.

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Major League Soccer veteran Chris Wingert, who hails from Babylon, N.Y., learned in December that he would be returning to his native New York as an expansion draft selection by the newly formed NYCFC. Wingert, 32, expected he might play for New York at some point in his career, but not so soon. Admittedly, he was quite content as a leader for perennial contender Real Salt Latke. “[NYCFC] piqued my interest, but at the same time it was far away off and I was super happy the whole time with a great organization in Real Salt Lake,” Wingert told “I just thought we’d cross…

    There are still some shining examples in the NFL and college coaching ranks of how great Hofstra’s football program was. You can point to some obvious ones like Saints receiver Marques Colston or Redskins lineman Stephen Bowen. You probably know the name Raheem Morris from his head coaching stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, or you could be familiar with Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood or Raiders assistant Joe Woods. The list goes on. There are some big names in football that coached or played in Hempstead. But did you know Dan Quinn? He has one of the biggest names in football right now…
  • Long Island Native Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame
    19 Jan 2015 | 6:22 am
    It looks like Craig Biggio’s finest achievement wasn’t winning the Hansen Award as Suffolk County’s top running back at Kings Park High. One of Long Island’s favorite sons is now a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. On his third year of eligibility, Biggio received enough votes to be just the second island native, after Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, to earn induction. Biggio, who spent his entire career playing for Houston, was a star in baseball and football at Kings Park. You can read any number of stories about Biggio and his career online, but here’s a boiled down…

    Tom Cutinella wanted to serve his country. He was a vocal leader as a junior at Shoreham-Wading River High School and would have carried forth his leadership skills in the United States Army if he could. He passed away during a high school football game on October 1, but his legacy is now living on. He also received a scholarship offer to play college football at Army from Black Knights head coach Jeff Monken after his death. It was touching and a true testament to Cutinella’s being. This story was featured on ESPN’s College Game Day the morning of the annual Army-Navy football rivalry…

    The Washington Nationals continue to trim their roster as Spring Training and the Grapefruit League wrap up.  Today, the Nationals released two veterans.  Veteran infielder Kevin Frandsen was released and reassigned OF Tony Gwynn Jr., 3B Ian Stewart, and Rafael Martin. With the release of Frandsen, the Nationals 40 man roaster sites at 37 players.  His future with the club took a bad turn upon the late acquisitions of OF Matt den Dekker and Reed Johnson, both of whom will likely make the roster. With the release of Frandsen, backup second baseman Danny Espinosa will likely also serves as…

  • AP Cowboy bound?

    1 Apr 2015 | 2:52 pm
    Earlier today Dallas Cowboy QB Tony Romo restructured his contract and freed up nearly 13 Million in cap space for the Cowboys. This move looks odd if you think Dallas is done in free agency for a couple reasons. First Dallas had this restructure option available during the Demarco Murray contract talks and didn’t do it. Second with most major free agents gone Dallas couldn’t spend the cap space available and with Romo’s deal now back loaded it seems there window is a win now mode. All this is odd unless you consider the following Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson is…

As Aaron Rodgers said earlier last season to Green Bay fans is the same thing I’d say to Eagle fans R-E-L-A-X for now.

  • Revis Island returns to the Jets

    10 Mar 2015 | 6:18 pm
    It has just been reported that Darelle Revis has signed and, pending a physical, will come back to the New York Jets for around 5 years 70 million. For the Jets it’s another smart move by their new regime as earlier today they added mauling guard from the Seattle Seahawks James Carpenter. But for Revis he’s the all time free agent legend in a deal that ESPN’s Adam Schefter has said will make him the highest paid corner back of all time. Revis is coming up on 30 years old with an injury history, however when on the field the case can be made he is the best shutdown corner in…

    Just over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the sacking of Andre Villas Boas, where I questioned whether the bullet should have stopped at Andre, or whether the problem lay further. Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

    Loads of people have been asking what criteria should be assessed when backing horses – so we asked the Betting Gods – and here are some of our favourites! Form Horses with a couple of wins next to their name tend to look more attractive than say a horse whose finished 5th and 6th on his last two runs. However, if those two wins were in handicaps, whilst the 5th and 6th placed finished were in Group Races, you can probably guess which is the better horse. A perfect example was Saturday’s big Lincoln Handicap. The market was headed by two four-year-olds who had won some decent handicaps…

    27 Mar 2015 | 6:20 am
    No pitcher’s elbow seems safe anymore. Earlier in spring training, Yu Darvish, the perennial Cy Young contender and ace of the Texas Rangers staff, had Tommy John surgery. A week later, promising Mets pitcher Zach Wheeler was under the knife. Those guys are part of a proud lineage of phenoms whose elbows couldn’t withstand the crazy forces of pitching a baseball every five days. In the past five years, 299 major and minor league pitchers have had Tommy John surgery.6 The epidemic — or whatever you want to call it — isn’t over yet.But beneath the scary headlines and the…
  • Is Messi vs. Ronaldo Bigger Than The Super Bowl?

    Benjamin Morris
    26 Mar 2015 | 1:14 pm
    As any die-hard soccer fan will tell you, the biggest “football” matchup of 2015 wasn’t that game in February between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. It was Sunday’s El Clasico, the game played at least a couple of times each year between FC Barcelona — featuring talented footballer Lionel Messi — and its archrival Real Madrid CF — featuring talented footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.If you don’t understand what a big deal it is for these two to face off, there may be no better way to explain than to say that for much of the world, they’re basically…
  • How To Tell If A March Madness Underdog Is Going To Win

    Stephen Pettigrew
    19 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    When the NCAA men’s basketball tournament picks up full speed Thursday, many fans will tune in with the hopes of seeing one thing: upsets. Some no doubt will come on last-minute buzzer beaters, but plenty will probably be long-simmering, the kinds of games that you can’t look away from. Those games will be all about tension: The underdog can’t possibly hold on to this lead, can it?We can figure out the answer to that question. Or at least what we should expect to happen when an upset is brewing — specifically, at what point in the game an underdog with a lead is more likely to…
  • Don’t Expect A No. 16 Seed To Win In The Women’s Tournament Ever Again

    Benjamin Morris
    18 Mar 2015 | 11:35 am
    Looking back over the history of stunning first-round knockouts in the NCAA basketball tournaments, one stands out: In the 1998 women’s tournament, the top-seeded Stanford Cardinal fell to the slightly brighter-shaded but 16th-seeded Harvard Crimson. Now, 17 years later, that’s still the only 16 vs. 1 upset in the history of March Madness.That was the first — and, as of this writing, last — time that a No. 1, 2 or 3 seed has lost an opening game in the women’s tournament since it took a 64-team structure in 1994. Through 21 years and 252 games, the top-3 seeds have a…

    The Toronto Maple Leafs (29-42-6) are in town tonight to take on the Buffalo Sabres (21-47-8) in a Wednesday night tilt at the First Niagara Center. Both teams, despite their overall records, have been winners as of late. With a 3-1 win over the Lightning on Monday, the Leafs are officially on a two game win streak—their first time winning consecutive games since February 26-28.

    The “Battle of the Basement: Part 1” is complete as the Buffalo Sabres fell to the Arizona Coyotes by a score of 4-3 in overtime Thursday night at the First Niagara Center. An exchange of six regulation goals, with both teams answering back when trailing, was quite uncharacteristic for the two teams that sit next to each other at the bottom of the NHL standings. Did the atmosphere contribute to the eventful play? Or was it simply the fact that these players were going out there and giving it their all for their fans?

  • PSG – The Oil-Rich Team That Amazed In UCL

    12 Mar 2015 | 11:44 am
    PSG – The Oil-Rich Team That Amazed In UCL Chelsea vs PSG from 11 March 2011 will sure become a classic of UEFA Champions League. It was a match full of surprises. PSG was for sure the better team and deserved to go further the Quarter Finals, while Chelsea remained stuck in a tactic that led to a complete disaster. What made the difference between the two teams? In my opinion the difference between Chelsea and PSG was made by the quality of football displayed by the two teams. While the oil-rich PSG tried to attack in both matches, Chelsea relied more on counter-attack and…

    7 Mar 2015 | 3:22 am
    Harry Kane – Tottenham’s Hurricane England’s new raising star, Harry Kane, is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in Premier League. Tottenham’s 21 years old striker is Premier League’s forth topscorer with 14 goals in 22 appearances, behind Diego Costa (17), Sergio Aguero (17) and Charlie Austin (14). Harry Kane is a complete striker, strong and hardworking, being able to score both from distance and from close range. Kane is a product of Tottenham’s youth system.

  • RUGBY UNION – March 21st – 6Nations – Italy v Wales (Rome)

    22 Mar 2015 | 6:20 pm
    The 6 Nations final day had been christened “Super Saturday” as any one of 4 out of the 6 teams could theoretically win the Championship. All 3 games were going to be played consecutively too, which could see more swings and roundabouts than in quite a lot of playgrounds, if you added them all together. So, Wales were up against it and so it seemed were the Italian authorities. Italy’s national airline, Alitalia went on strike on Friday, as did the air traffic controllers which meant many people’s flights were either cancelled or rescheduled. The people we were…

The Southern Tigers were on the cruise control right from the kick-off and were never troubled by the Elephants despite some nervous moments in the last few minutes of the game.

None of the teams participating in the tournament is up to our standard which is “world class“, mind you. So, despite the unexpected heart pumping and nerve-wracking semi-final match against Japan, all were smooth sailing for us. We even hammered our opponent in the final, Poland, 8-0. Neil Hawgood and Tai Beng Hai must be smiling up to their ears.I have always maintained that we have a very good hockey team especially at junior level. However,…

    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.More importantly, he looked like he enjoyed…

Sunday’s 66-52 loss to Duke was predicted by BennettRank, by seeding, and by the sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach the moment I saw the Zags walk onto the court in their accursed black jerseys.It would be easy to point fingers or make excuses for the loss.

    Video Technology should be introduced for referees Football nowadays is referred to as a business. Finance, revenues, ownership and the boardroom are spoken about more than ever before. Yes we fans like to think of it as ‘our game’ but it means much more than that now. It’s a cut-throat business. Teams want the best players, owners demand instant success and it’s now vey much part of the entertainment industry. So based on that logic, shouldn’t we want the best referees and assistants to officiate our game? After all isn’t a match and a league only as good as it’s officials?

  • Why Everyone Should Want Kentucky to Advance

    30 Mar 2015 | 7:32 pm
    If you’ve ever read this blog, you’ll know I’m an avid Cameron Crazie. I love Duke. I love seeing Duke win. Their season is usually my most happy time of the year, because it bridges the end of the disappointing Minnesota Vikings’ football season with the predictably disappointing Minnesota Twins’ baseball season. I still want to see Kentucky advance. This whole 2015 NCAA March Madness Tournament was built to see Duke play Kentucky. We didn’t get that game during the regular season, and it’s in the best interest of the NCAA to give it to us. It was…
  • I Guess I’ll Start Smoking

    Caleb Bjørnsen
    16 Mar 2015 | 10:51 am
    I used to be what you would call a chain smoker. I genuinely enjoyed the act of smoking. I didn’t (and still don’t) feel “normal” unless I have some form of nicotine in my system. As I continued smoking my breathing became increasingly strained. It had gotten to the point where I had to inhale epinephrine at least once a day just to feel like I could breathe. After a few months of this I came to the conclusion that not being able to breathe blows, and I purchased an electronic cigarette for myself. I absolutely loved it. It tasted fantastic and gave me the nicotine hit I…

  • St. Vincent Biggest Oscar Snub of 2015

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

    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…

    Valentino Rossi most certainly isn’t just the best rider in the „over 35“-league. By taking the first win in the brand-new 2015 MotoGP season, the italian proved once again why he’s worshipped by fans and media around the world. After a less than satisfying qualifying and free practice sessions, Rossi benefited from the chaos around the first turn and fought his way from ninth to fourth position. He followed his teammate, the by-then leading Jorge Lorenzo, and both Ducati factory riders Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone. Not only did the „Doctor“ close up on the leading…

After the season opening round in Australia, many surmised that Mercedes would dominate this year’s world championship as they did last year, but Ferrari have injected serious doubt into this after seemingly having more than enough pace to challenge and beat the reigning champions today.

Asics have created another seriously comfortable shoe that provides a glove like fit without compromising stability and flexibility. As a general rule, the more protection a shoe provides, the greater it’s stiffness will be. This comes at a cost as the foot is unable to flex as it needs to do when running. The GEL-DS is relatively flexible, whilst being supportive, an impressive achievement. Asics Gel-DS Trainer 19…

    The Chicago Bears are going to start the 2015 season with Jay Cutler as their quarterback. I don’t care what John Fox claims, there is no way Jimmy Clausen is going to beat out Cutler as the starter in training camp. Bears’ GM Ryan Pace has said on more than one occasion that he’s looking to add a quarterback in the draft or in college free agency every year. If that remains true, Chicago could have it’s future QB on the roster soon. So, Pace could decide to dump Cutler next year, or maybe find a trade partner, something he wasn’t able to do this year.

Call it bad timing.This year, however, the race was wide open from the start. Only seven current players have won one. One of those players was Kobe Bryant, shut down a few months into the season. Kevin Durant missed the first 17 games of the season and has been in and out of the OKC side ever since with little niggles. Derrick Rose, the youngest man to ever win the MVP, was coming back from years of injury…

    Adios, Steve NashOne of the worst kept secrets in basketball has been confirmed with Steve Nash retiring from the NBA. Now immediately we can forget the dramas of the busted era that’s ruined the Lakers, of the torturous injuries and the massive salary he was unable to prove that he deserved or not. Steve Nash has retired, and now we’re free to dwell on moments like these. Nash made the announcement in an essay for Derek Jeter’s Player’s Tribune (which has some good stuff now and then). The post began simply enough: “I’m retiring”.If you’ve seen the videos he’s done for…

    NFL Free-For-All AgencyFor the first time in the Super Bowl era, the leading rusher in an NFL season will start the following season on a new team. DeMarco Murray has signed a 5-year, $42m contract with Dallas’ arch-rivals… the Philadelphia Eagles. Suddenly the flurry of trades out of Philly don’t seem so crazy. Fans can even stomach the potential signing of Tim Tebow (the one and only) as their third string quarterback, though that depends on whether they can get any takers for Matt Barkley. Which they should, surely Jacksonville or Tampa Bay or somewhere would take a punt on him. Of…

  • Italian Media Slam Theo Walcott As An “Eternal Peter Pan” After Poor Performance For England

    Stuart Hynd
    1 Apr 2015 | 1:18 pm
    England’s draw with Italy wasn’t exactly a great advert for international football, with England winger Theo Walcott picked out by the Italian press for his poor performance. Newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport is well-known for its harsh critique of under-performing players and somewhat harshly awards these individuals with “Il Peggiore”. This roughly translates to “the worst”, ironically an award the newspaper also gave to Walcott’s former teammate and Arsenal loanee Lukas Podolski, for his poor performances for Inter Milan. It wasn’t…

    1 Apr 2015 | 12:46 pm
    Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling gave a candid interview with the BBC today, during which he claimed he “isn’t a money-grabbing 20-year-old”. However, in a new twist, there are unconfirmed reports that Liverpool did not sanction this interview, as they normally would in practice. This speculation fuels rumours that Sterling has gone rogue after turning down a £100,000 a week contract at the Anfield club. BBC Radio 5 Live broke the news, as they quoted Sam Wallace, Chief football correspondent for The Independent: "Raheem Sterling has gone rogue, this interview…

    Dutch duo Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld will compete in Premier League Darts’ ninth leg in Manchester on Thursday. And for an extra dose of inspiration the pair decided to visit Manchester United at Old Trafford today. World no. 1 Van Gerwen and van Barneveld were met by fellow Dutchmen Robin Van Persie and Daley Blind and it appears all four men took part in their own mini-darts tournament: Van Gerwen, 25, beat countryman Van Barneveld, 47, 7-2 last week and remains undefeated. However the loss means Barney is on the brink of elimination from the event.

    Basketball, NBA News: Derrick Rose is on his way to return from yet another knee surgery, which is his third one since 2012. The point-guard tore his meniscus at the beginning of February and is currently working towards getting back on the court. For the Chicago Bulls, the last three years have been a nightmare, as their star player has been on the shelf for most of the time. Because of Rose’s inability to stay healthy, should the Bulls consider trading him? If they make a step towards that direction, can they get something good in return? The truth is that the Bulls will most likely love…

    Since their return to the NFL in 1999, the Cleveland Browns have had 22 starting quarterbacks. That’s the most – by far – of any NFL team during this time period. Three teams share a distant second place for this dubious distinction with 18 . . . the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders.  The difference is that these three second place teams have seen the post season a combined eleven times. The Browns – only once. Over these past fifteen years, the Browns have drafted eight quarterbacks (four in the 1st round), traded for four and signed ten more through free…

The NFL has kept this “formula” a closely guarded secret which has kept sports media speculating more and more every year since the process began in 1994.  Now with the…

Fellaini’s ninth minute goal — his 12th for the ‘Red Devils’ which sees him become the highest scorer for the national side of players still playing — was just enough as the visitors had to play out the last 30 minutes after captain Vincent Kompany was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Spain were hoping to exact revenge for the 5-1 thrashing they suffered at the hands of the Dutch at last year’s World Cup, but their chances were undone by two goals in the opening 15 minutes. De Vrij rose highest to head home Wesley Sneijder’s in-swinging cross before Klaasen was given an alarming amount of space inside the box to fire home on the rebound after David de Gea had saved his initial effort.

  • Bayern ready to make peace and end Dortmund feud

    1 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has extended an olive branch to Borussia Dortmund ahead of the clubs' Bundesliga meeting at the Westfalenstadion on Saturday. Dortmund and Bayern have shared the last five Bundesliga titles, and have met in a final of a major competition in the last three seasons. While BVB won back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2011 and 2012 and also beat their rivals 5-2 in the DFB-Pokal final that year, Bayern won the league in 2010 as well as in 2013 and 2014. Bayern beat Dortmund 2-1 in the 2013 Champions League final and 2-0 in the DFB-Pokal final the following…
  • Robin van Persie set to return for Aston Villa

    1 Apr 2015 | 3:46 am
    Robin van Persie could return from injury this weekend for Manchester United’s game against Aston Villa. The latest reports suggest van Persie is ahead of schedule to return to Man United’s squad this weekend having been sidelined ever since the loss away to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium over a month ago. Louis van Gaal will no doubt be delighted when van Persie returns and is available for selection but there are questions around where he fits into the Man United team after he returns or whether he fits at all. United’s recent excellent performances have come with Wayne Rooney as…
  • Match Preview: Netherlands vs Turkey

    28 Mar 2015 | 4:48 am
    Netherlands look to take a step closer to qualifying for Euro 2016 when they host Turkey at the Amsterdam Arena on Saturday. The qualifying campaign has been far from smooth so far for Guus Hiddink’s side, with Netherlands currently sitting third in the group, six points behind leaders Czech Republic, and three behind Iceland. A win against 4th placed Turkey is a must if Netherlands are to get their target of finishing top of the group. Hiddink’s preparations have been hampered by the injuries to captain Robin van Persie, and star player Arjen Robben, which has forced the coach to rethink…
  • England vs Lithuania: Euro 2016 Qualifying

    25 Mar 2015 | 4:04 pm
    Ahead of Friday's clash between England and Lithuania at Wembley, Joe Hart has urged Harry Kane not to leave his under-21 career behind. The Tottenham forward has been the find of the 2014-15 Premier League season and is currently tied with Diego Costa as the division's top scorer with 19 goals. At 21 years old, Kane remains eligible to play in England's youth ranks and, with the European Under-21 Championship to take place in June, goalkeeper Hart has urged his new team-mate not to rule out a return. "I loved my time with the under-21s," said Hart. "We had a great thing going and, from what…
  • France wary of more balanced Brazil

    25 Mar 2015 | 3:55 pm
    France Geoffrey Kondogbia insisted facing Brazil was still a thrill despite the South American nation's embarrassing exit at last year's World Cup. Brazil were thrashed 7-1 by Germany in the semi-finals before going down 3-0 to Netherlands in the third-place play-off in front of their home fans. The appointment of Dunga as coach has helped turn their fortunes around with six straight wins heading into Thursday's encounter in France. Kondogbia said Dunga's Brazil was different to the one under Luiz Felipe Scolari. "Despite their defeat during the World Cup, Brazil remains a great nation of…

    Looking for a sly way to persuade people? Are you taking advantage of this simple tool every office has? Our most powerful coaching tools can often be right in front of us, and we don’t even know it. A basic clipboard can be sneakily powerful. So can a smart phone. But the power of the clipboard, and even a smart phone can pale in comparison to the coaching power of … a sticky note. Really? Absolutely. Take a piece of paper. Cut it into squares.

  • The Ultimate Guide To Making Athlete Cuts

    Sedaka was wrong — breaking up is NOT hard to do. There are plenty of ways to break up. Easy and quick ways. Down and dirty. Here’s the thing, a coach and an athlete, no matter how long they’ve known each other, have a relationship. And ending that relationship can be easy. But doing it with class, respect, dignity — now that is hard to do. I say that because so many coaches end relationships in rotten ways. I know because I’ve been cut from more teams than I want to remember. Rejected This is all about rejection. You run a tribe — in this case a sport team — and for some…

I was so wrong. I had ordered the team lunches, but for the wrong day. I had requested transportation, but had neglected to get gas money. We were departing at 7am, but I ignored major road construction that added an hour to our drive. We arrived late, athletes got hungry, and I had to borrow gas money for the trip home. All of these hassles could have been prevented if I had just listened to John…

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

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…

      Wisconsin will make more FT’s than UNC attempts Winning Bet: Yes This delicious ridiculous prop bet came down to the last 6 seconds with Frank the Tank looking to secure this bet after the Sweet 16 matchup had been decided.  Luckily for those betting Yes, Frank was able to ice it, assuring him of a high draft pick and hopefully the free cash to buy his family some undershirts. Josh Gasser will visit the 1st row in matchup with UNC Winning Bet: No Gasser was looking a little jumpy but decided to keep his nervous energy focused on the deadeye Marcus Paige.   Those of you that…

    Jordan and Sarah will win MTV’s The Challenge:  Battle of the Exes 2  Winning Bet:  Yes After Hurricane Nia got sent home, this bet was looking excellent for those who put their Bookoo on the YES.  And as predicted, even though Sarah did give us her traditional yakking (she had it coming out of both ends, actually), the red team managed to outperform Leroy and Theresa throughout the 2 day final challenge to give Sarah her first victory in 9 tries.  Long Live Evil Sarah!
  • Sweet 16 Suggestions

    Well, the first weekend of March Madness was rough on me.  The choke job by the LSU Tigers against the NC State Wolfpack cost me mucho bookoo and swung the Cats/Dogs bet and then SF Austin couldn’t manage to knock down more than a couple from deep prompting a “holstering”.  To make matters worse, that cocky SOB Bookoo sent me this text after clearing the weekends bets: “Just wiped my butt with 500 of your bookoo bucks.  Made such a killing, not even worried bout it.” With my performance over the first weekend in mind, here are my Sweet 16 Suggestions. …

    All four 2-seeds will make the Sweet 16 Winning Bet: No It is March, and therefore Tom Izzo and his band of misfit toys are making a run.  MSU beat 2-seed Virginia and are now considered the favorite in the chaotic East region.  No matter how many NCAA tourney runs MSU makes, it still won’t fill the hole in Tom’s heart from missing the free throws that cost his high school the Upper Peninsula championship.  Take solace Tony Bennett, at least you got him there. Adam Woodbury will poke someone in the eye vs Gonzaga Winning Bet: No The 4th Stooge and extreme ophthalmology…

  • Brain vs Body in Dance

    Katie Johnson
    1 Apr 2015 | 12:44 pm
      Our brains do so much work. All our lives we train them, educate them, and over-saturate them. They bear the burden of our decision making. From the macro to the minute, we each have a personal logic system carefully crafted to keep us safe and functional. As dancers, it’s really easy to let our brains tell us things like, “That looks good!”, “I know this one!” and especially, “Woah! That’s not safe!” Our brains tell us these things in our pedestrian lives too. So why not in our dance? Because you don’t dance with your brain, you dance with your body. If your brain is…
  • Are You a Pole Snob?

    Hanging On by byMaC Photography on 500px My old job was in a sweet suburban summer resort town filled with cute little independent restaurants. My boss hated all of them. He claimed that he hadn’t found a tolerable Mexican restaurant in the entire state because he was spoiled from having lived in Texas. He wouldn’t let us order pizza for lunch because he didn’t like the local pizzeria. So finally we tried out a new burger place in town, and he complained about that too. I called him out on being a snob. “You say you don’t like the Mexican food here because you lived in Texas. Well,…
  • Scorecards in the Trap House: on Pole Dancers Judging Strippers

    Lux ATL
    27 Mar 2015 | 12:14 pm
    As I exited the stage at the strip club during a recent night of work, a group of female customers signaled me to their table. “You dance like a real dancer,” they gushed. Conspiratorially leaning across the table, one of the women whispered to me, “I could dominate most of these strippers at their own job, because I’m a trained pole dancer.” Before you go to your local strip club with scorecard in hand, or before you decide to embark upon a career in sex work because you aced your Stripper Style pole series, allow me to clarify a few key differences between pole dancing for fun and…
  • Power for Pole Competitors

    Bob Zamora
    25 Mar 2015 | 12:43 pm
    When the words “power” and “empowerment” come up in the pole world, we don’t automatically think of pole competitions. In fact, many pole dancers contemplating entering pole comps probably feel overwhelmed. When we compete there are a lot of things that are beyond our control. This can give us a sense of helplessness. We have no control over the judges picked for the competition, or the rules that govern the event. On performance day the venue could be too cold or too hot. The poles can be too slick or too sticky. The pole cleaners might have missed a crucial spot on the pole, and…
