Schefter, citing a team source, says that Colt McCoy will be Washington's starting quarterback when they take on Indianapolis on Sunday, not Griffin.

    Kevin Draper
    25 Nov 2014 | 6:40 pm
    The Dallas Stars defenseman scored this thunderous goal to take a 1-0 lead over the Oilers in the first period tonight. If you look closely at about 27 seconds, you can see that the puck is actually on its side when Klingberg slaps it. This leads the puck to move much like a knuckleball would, and fool Oilers goalie Viktor Fasth. The movement is brutal, but you still expect Fasth to be able to stop a glove side, unscreened shot from 75 feet away. Read more...

    The latest tempest in a spittoon involves Tiger Woods getting his knickers in a knot because Dan Jenkins wrote a satirical piece in Golf Digest about Woods. It purports to be an interview with Tiger Woods but readers may have gotten a clue from the headline that this was not a transcript of a real interview. Here is the headline: My (Fake) Interview With Tiger* *Or how it plays out in my mind You can read the whole thing here; trust me, it is not a flattering portrayal of Tiger Woods.

    A little more than a year ago, the San Marino international soccer team scored its first goal in international competition in more than a 5-year span. Notwithstanding that feat, San Marino failed to win the game; in fact, San Marino has never won an international soccer game. The international team has been in business since 1990 and its record stands at 0-61-1. That tie game happened about a week ago when San Marino and Estonia met in something called “European qualifying” and the game ended at “Nil-Nil”. Question: Given the performance of San Marino over the last quarter of a…

    The NFL has suspended Adrian Peterson for the rest of this season. The NFLPA will appeal that decision. Claims and counterclaims are flying around from unnamed sources about this matter. I do not pretend to know all of what happened at the time that Adrian Peterson disciplined his young son but I want to go on record with this statement: If the pictures I saw on the Internet are indeed of Peterson’s son after his “disciplinary event” and if they have not been “photoshopped”, I think what Adrian Peterson did is reprehensible. The appeal by the NFLPA and attorneys for Ray Rice to…

    Do I need to still keep saying “another whacky week?” At this point, isn’t it just a standard week? I guess that doesn’t have as much flare to it though. Someone think of a really fun word for “standard” and send it to me on Twitter. There was a last minute change to Arizona this week, and Dallas crept back into the top five. Despite a win, and the return of LeSean McCoy, Philly is still outside of the top-five bubble. Washington managed to stay out of the bottom five, but that doesn’t mean they were free from criticism. All that, and more, in this week’s rankings. The Top…
  • Fantasy: Patriots RB situation is a Gray Area

    “A Gray area”, Other than a delightful play on words, its the very definition for the New England Patriots’ running back situation. Or for any Patriots player not named Tom Brady when it comes to fantasy, really. During the long reign of Bill Belichick, there really haven’t been consistent fantasy “locks” on the team. Besides a select few, that is. Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady may be the only names on the list. Recently, Jonas Gray made a big splash in New England’s backfield rotation. Which caused a lot of you to scramble to your phones, tablets, or…
  • Disappointment, decades of it

    The life of a fan of a team in the National Football League can be a Jekyll and Hyde experience. In just the 17 weeks of a NFL season you can experience an array of emotions. As a true fan, or fanatic, you will often feel the same as the coaches and players. However, being a fan of the Washington Redskins means being one thing, decades of disappointment. It all started for me in the fall of ’88. I was a young boy growing up, in what was then, a small Colorado town. Growing up in a state that already had a football team, everyone thought I should plant my roots there. But I wanted a team…

    Did your weekly “pick’em” look as bad as mine did? I wasn’t surprised though. The only “constant” this year has been how unpredictable (for the most) each week is. Even though I have been hemorrhaging money from bad picks, I wouldn’t change a thing about this season. {Note: TPF does not support the incredibly fun act of gambling.}  But it’s the unpredictable nature that makes the NFL so much fun and so different from any other sport. The bottom five looks quite a bit different this week. Mostly because the teams in there deserve to have their ineptitude highlighted. The…
  • Real Robert Griffin III please stand up, he has!

    Sean Naylor
    18 Nov 2014 | 7:58 am
    In the NFL, the quarterback is often seen as the staple of a team. If a roster does not have a franchise QB the team is mediocre at best. In 2012, the Washington Redskins thought that they had finally drafted the guy to become that franchise QB. Turns out they may have been wrong. Would the real Robert Griffin III please stand up, wait, he has! Now don’t get me wrong, in 2012 I was as enamored with this kid just as the rest of the league and Redskins fans were. But since then something has changed. The real Robert Griffin III is not the same QB he was that year. Has the league caught up to…

    Trent Richardson continued his mercurial ways with the Indianapolis Colts. It doesn’t really matter who else plays running back for the Colts, they outperform Richardson. On Sunday, it was Daniel Herron, pressed into action with Ahmad Bradshaw’s season-ending injury, who totaled nearly 100 yards from scrimmage. How’s this fact? Since Richardson arrived in Indianapolis, there has only been one game where he played, and another running back also got at least 5 carries, and Richardson had the highest yards per carry.  (That was last year, against Denver, when Richardson had 37…

I got James Madison winning it all and then taking SMU's spot in the American. Vad Lee's got this. THE INTERNET CAN MAKE ANYTHING REAL.

    WE WILL NOT FORGET There have been many dumb football games this season, just as there are every season. Florida-Tennessee was a very dumb football game. Penn State-Michigan was a very dumb football game. Stanford probably had three dumb football games alone. But once you establish that some games are dumber than others, you necessarily support the proposition that one game will be the dumbest of the season. And when you play four quarters without either team scoring a single point, and when one of those teams needs the win to finally get bowl eligible to continue the fifth-longest postseason…

    Universal We’ve only got a trailer (and a pre-trailer) for Jurassic World at this point, but we’ve already got a wealth of discussions and criticism pouring out about a return to Jurassic Park next summer. The oddest I’ve seen so far comes the scientists and smart folks who are having some issues with the way the dinosaurs are being portrayed on film. From trailer, looks like #JurassicWorld's Big Bad has thumbs. Yeah.

The guys at Dude Perfect took time away from filming about a millon miserable reps to get one perfect trick shot (aka the RG3 playbook) to ask Russell Wilson to draw a Seahawk for them. What they got was in all liklihood the worst representaton of a Seahawk since Percy Harvin put on the jersey. What Wilson drew is a cranky bird with large teeth which Im sure isnt a potshot at his exwife at all. By the way- do you know who else was a faled artist?

That the Giants couldn’t parlay his Meastiness into a victory isn’t Beckham’s fault, especially when Eli Manning didn’t see him wide open in the second half.

It was the latest blow in the most lop-sided division-on-division battle of the 2014 season. With Week 12 officially in the books, the AFC North is now 10-1-1 against the NFC South. The lone NFC South win in the series was Tampa Bay’s week 4 win over Pittsburgh (one of two wins this season for the Bucs!). The tie was, of course, Carolina and Cincinnati…

    The Denver Nuggets' Ty Lawson is one of the toughest defensive assignments in the NBA, and Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was his latest victim on Tuesday night. With under five minutes to play in the third quarter and his team leading by six at home, Lawson faked as if he was going to cross over then kept the ball with his right hand, throwing Hinrich off balance and sending him to the floor. Lawson subsequently hit teammate Timofey Mozgov for a lay-in and the 73-65 lead.

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson will face the Chicago Bears on Thursday with a chance to become the 43rd player to eclipse 10,000 career receiving yards, per Pro-Football-Reference.com. Johnson entered Sunday's 34-9 loss to the New England Patriots 152 yards short of the mark and then put together a middling stat line of four catches for 58 yards on 10 targets. The game left him with 9,906 receiving yards, just 94 short of the milestone. The Lions failed to do much offensively, as they were held out of the end zone for a second straight week, marking the only two times the team…

The Giants appear to be scouring the trade and free agent markets for upgrades, as Heyman reports that they’ve at least initiated talks with free agents Nick Markakis, Nelson Cruz, Chase Headley, Torii Hunter, Justin Masterson and of course Yasmany Tomas (their interest in Tomas has been well-documented). Beyond that, they’ve kicked the tires on Atlanta’s Justin Upton, and their…

Bastian’s source wouldn’t specify whether an offer has been made. As Bastian notes, a run at Headley would likely first require Cleveland to move the contract of Nick Swisher, who is owed $30MM through 2016.

    As "America's Most Bike-Friendly City," New York does her best to throw that cumbersome title off her back like a bucking bronco dispensing with a redneck.  To that end, her latest rodeo clown is Bono, humanitarian and vocal stylist for aging rock band U2, who has suffered a crash in Central Park:Just days after he ‘cheated death’ following an in-flight emergency over Germany, Bono has been forced to pull out of a scheduled TV appearance in New York after falling off his bike in Central Park on Sunday.The U2 frontman has since been left needing surgery for an injury to his arm…

Especially since many from the current commentary and broadcast team lack formal broadcast or commentating experience. Sure, it's nice to have commentators who have backgrounds in professional surfing who can articulate some of the finer details during a contest, but it needs to be matched with some seasoned veterans as well to create a nice balance. That's why I think it could be extremely beneficial to add some experienced…

  • Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs - 11/26/14 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

    25 Nov 2014 | 11:42 pm
    The Maple Leafs look for their third win in a row as they head into Pittsburgh on Wednesday night to face the unenviable task of playing against Sidney Crosby and the Penguins. The Maple Leafs are one of the most highly scrutinized franchises in North American sports and they always seem to draw the attention for better or worse from the media and a victory on the road against the Penguins would likely continue that trend once again. The Leafs have been inconsistent to start the season and as such find themselves in fifth place in the Atlantic division and are trying to hold off the Sens and…

The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders are one win away from reaching the postseason which means their bout with Texas El Paso is a must win. The Blue Raiders snapped a two game skid and kept their season alive with a 35-34 decision over Florida Atlantic that was decided when Austin Grammer hit Marcus Henry with a 12 yard scoring toss with 19 seconds left. The Owls totaled 540 yards with plenty of running and passing while the Blue Raiders posted 470 yards with most coming on the ground.

  • Is Major League Baseball Losing its Popularity? How Can It Be Stopped?

    Jennifer Smith
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Is America’s pastime becoming a thing of the past? Baseball is currently the nation’s second-favorite sport, trailing only football. Despite this ranking, most baseball economists are reporting that baseball game attendance and popularity is on a steady decline. Unless Major League Baseball (MLB) does something to gain the attention of modern viewers, it’s not going to fair well (popularity-wise) in the years to come. A report released May 29th, 2013, shows that MLB game attendance had declined 2.9 percent. Some teams saw more declines in attendance than others. For instance, the…
  • Top Career Crushing Sports Injuries and What We Can Do to Stop Them

    Injuries are part of playing sports, but sometimes we wonder if sports injuries have to be so devastating. Players bank on their health for a paycheck and, at the same time, they have to entertain demanding fans. If they don’t perform, they won’t be around for long. Some think that some sports, like football, need an overhaul because of the severity of injuries when they do occur. Should national leagues be paying more attention to these injuries? And, what can be done, if anything, to minimize or eliminate them? Here are just a few examples of devastating sports injuries and what could…

    While almost every American is aware of the popularity of the NFL, NCAA, NBA, MLB and NHL; most would be stumped if asked which is the fastest growing team sport. If someone were to hazard a guess, they would most likely be wrong, because the fastest growing sport is none of these. It’s lacrosse. Fastest Growing Sport According to an annual report by US Lacrosse,“A record total of 746,859 players competed on organized lacrosse teams in 2013. The growth rate from last year (722,205) was 3.4 percent and youth participation topped 400,000 for the first time ever.” Two Reasons for The…

    The LSU defense did about as well as could be expected against Johnny Manziel… But as a more traditional passer, Kyle Allen presents a very different test. LSU was the only team that went 2-0 against “Johnny Football”, but as the captions above indicate, that’s not necessarily a reason for confidence going into this game. If you missed it, I wrote about LSU’s quarterback situation last week. For the last few weeks, I’ve been waiting until I can compute the Mock BCS standings before writing a blog about my rankings.

The better lesson may be that Bruce Levenson let fear (albeit racially-based) and ignorance drive his business decisions.

    So the Stanford Women’s Basketball game at New Mexico started out Stanford enough.

  • Washington guard Kelsey Plum named to Wooden Award top 30 list

    24 Nov 2014 | 1:26 pm

  • Gonzaga dropped out of AP Top 25 poll; UConn slipped to No. 3

    Many thought then-No. 6 Stanford upsetting then-No. 1 UConn last week, snapping the Huskies' 47-game winning streak, was good for the women's basketball season. Well, that was just the beginning. Days after Stanford's win, then-No. 10 Texas traveled to The Farm and used overtime to win at Maples Pavilion. That upset ended the Cardinal's 28-game home win streak and suddenly the women's hoops landscape is a mystery. And that's a good thing. No team looked superhuman after the first full week of games, many ranked teams barely winning some matchups. The Associated Press poll reflected as much,…

    At the beginning of each triathlon season, most triathletes sit down and plan their races based on their goals. Some goals are event based – “I want to qualify for X championship race.” Some goals are time/distance based – “I want to do a sub 5 hour 70.3.” Others are competition based – “I want to finish on the podium, or at least beat my brother who won’t quit bragging about the last race where he bested me.” While I’ve built previous seasons around each of those different types of goals, this year is different for me. This year my goals are “happiness…

I stopped reading triathlon blogs, avoided Twitter all together and stopped thinking about anything fitness related. The last thing I wanted to see was someone complaining about missing their marathon goal when I wasn’t sure if I’d ever be able to run a single step without crippling back pain. As my back healed, I eventually came out of hiding and quit being so grumpy, irritable and was actually open to hearing about and celebrating my friend’s…

    When a sportsman or woman is suffering from an ailment or experiencing physical body injury, he or she has the option of either seeking medical treatments or to try and treat the condition on their own.

For them once they carry out the first aid treatments and the pain is gone, they assume that all is well. However after some time the…

    Under the headline “Did the Red Sox lack fire needed to compete?”, Nick Cafardo in his Sunday Baseball column singles out Xander Bogearts and Jackie Bradley Jr. “The lows they experienced didn’t bring any negative emotion,” according to an unnamed player no longer with the team. According to Cafardo, the player stated that the youngsters should have taken their lead from Dustin Pedroia, who “was said to be distraught over the team’s poor play.” The player is a bit off base. Prospects like Bogearts and Bradley should not have to break bats and…
  • A Sad Day in November

    Michael Passanisi
    22 Nov 2014 | 9:05 am
    Luis Tiant is getting another chance at the Hall of Fame. The 73-year-old former Red Sox righthander was named to the Golden Era ballot that will be voted on in December. One of the saddest days of my Sox life was November 13, 1978 when I heard on the radio that Luis had signed with the Yankees. It was the ultimate indignity- the most popular Bosox player in decades and their first true black hero was going down the river. Peter Gammons’ excellent book Beyond the Sixth Game describes the sad departure. Rescued from oblivion by Eddie Kasko in 1971, he gave the Sox seven full years,…

The Reds legend, now a pundit on Sky Sports, was unabashed in his criticism of his former side following their capitulation at Selhurst Park yesterday — even going so far to admit that he’s getting very worried about them. “Luis Suarez has gone, so what?

Well, they were in the basement, anyway. The Eagles weathered an early storm to pull level through Dwight Gayle after Rickie Lambert scored his first goal for the Reds within the opening two minutes.

    Novak Djokovic has won the last two ATP World Tour Finals at London’s O2 Arena – and the betting market seems to suggest he’s a foregone conclusion to win the 2014 event too. This is understandable; with Rafael Nadal out due to an appendix operation, Djokovic’s competition has been diluted. It seems as if the main challenge will come from veteran Roger Federer and UK hopeful Andy Murray. As things stand the pre-tournament betting, Djokovic is a 5/6 chance, followed by Roger Federer at a best-priced 4-1 and Andy Murray available at a maximum of 7-1. And if you were staking your life on…

    When football trick plays work, they’re a lot of fun to watch. A well-run trick play might make the local news, and the better ones can go from a lot of hits on YouTube to a viral sensation. Trick plays can also change the outcome of games. In addition to plays resulting in scores, the plays can be demoralizing for opponents. From PeeWee games to the NFL, you’ll find coaches trying to outfox the opponents with some trickery.

Phewf, glad they did that after winning that meaningless game – Photo by Helen HeathIn case you missed it Sunday, the Chatham Maroons did in fact salute their fans after beating the London Nationals Sunday night in local Junior B hockey action. Personally, I almost missed it heading out the door to beat traffic, but I’m told that this is significant and relevant hockey news, which needs to be reported on. I learned the importance of the salute last week when the Toronto Maple Leafs “failed” to salute…

Let’s take a look at an overview of what you can expect from a basic Photoshop CS tutorial. First, create a new layer (Layer, New, New Layer). Then, grab your polygonal lasso tool. What you want to create is a rectangle-ish object that has top corners slightly in further than the bottom corners. The easiest way to do this is to create 1/2 of the bag, duplicate the layer, and flip the duplicated layer. If you have a graphics tablet or are really comfortable…

  • Looking At Danny Santana

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

    4 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Aaron Hicks is not yet a bust. I realize that's an unpopular opinion amongst the Twins faithful, but a simple understanding of his numbers makes it a fact.Calling Hicks a bust seems to stem from him struggling offensively over the last two seasons in the big leagues. The thought process seems to be that he got two years to show he belonged on the team, and he struggled. Of course, each season was less than half a season's worth of at bats, so Hicks first two years in the big leagues are really the equivalent of most rookies first seasons.To be fair, Hicks hasn't just struggled with the bat,…

And while it is true that Rubio's shooting leaves a lot to be desired, fans as usual focus on the "flashy" part of the game rather than the big picture.When Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown, many fans were convinced that he HAD to be the MVP, because he had won the triple crown for goodness sakes! How could he not win it? It's simple; fans and writers and even "baseball experts" had been valuing the wrong parts of…

With Oakland acquiring arguably the two best pitchers available over the last month (Jeff Samarzdija being the other), one of their main competitors knew they needed to get involved in the arms race. And get involved the Tigers did.After weeks of David Price trade speculation, with a different "favorite" emerging seemingly daily, the Tigers came basically out of nowhere to land the Cy…

    19 Nov 2014 | 1:37 pm
    Tevin Carter is a difference maker. From making big hits to his pick 6 against UCLA, Carter imposed his presence on opposing teams and added another nasty element to an already nasty defense. The problem is because of injuries he’s only been able to play in less than 4 full games this season. Some might say, the Utes would have only 1 loss had Carter been healthy and able to suit up, that’s how big of a game changer he is. So the question that has been on everyone’s mind lately is: Will Tevin Carter be back next season? According to Coach Whittingham, they will apply…

The Coyotes blew a 3-0 first-period lead to the Avalanche and found themselves in overtime trying to not lose in horrendous fashion. That's when Daniel Briere tried to fire a pass to a cutting Zach Redmond, only to have Hanzal swing his stick around and bat the puck past Mike Smith to give Colorado a 4-3 win. Have another look: You couldn't hit a backhand one-timer any more perfect than that if you wanted to. While it was a freaky…

A few of the ramifications: · As mentioned above, Arkansas is now bowl eligible. What a ridiculous pair of games for the Hogs. · Ole…
  • SMU's supposed breakout season isn't off to a good start

    Jeff Eisenberg
    25 Nov 2014 | 8:14 pm
    One of the big questions entering the season was whether SMU was still capable of a breakout season even after elite point guard prospect Emmanuel Mudiay abruptly turned pro and top big man Marcus Kennedy encountered unexpected eligibility issues.  So far the answer is a resounding "no." The Mustangs are still in search of their first meaningful win of the season after squandering three chances in the opening two weeks of the season. They were seldom competitive at Gonzaga eight days ago in their first chance to prove themselves. They had no answer for freshman James Blackmon a few days…
  • Red Sox to use Hanley in outfield, is a trade next?

    Israel Fehr
    25 Nov 2014 | 7:50 pm
    When Hanley Ramirez went from the Red Sox to the Marlins in a blockbuster trade after the 2005 season, he was viewed as one of the best shortstop prospects in baseball. Now 30, Ramirez returned to Boston on Tuesday after signing a four-year deal for $88 million but it won't be at the position that made him such a hot commodity nine years ago. With fellow offseason acquisition Pablo Sandoval set to take over at third base and Xander Bogaerts the incumbent at short, Ramirez and his bat appear headed to left field, adding another name to Boston's already crowded outfield. It's a list that…
  • John Klingberg scores from center ice vs. Edmonton (Video)

    25 Nov 2014 | 7:36 pm
    In just eight games with the Dallas Stars, rookie defenseman John Klingberg has made an impression. After Tuesday night, Viktor Fasth won't forget him soon either.  Klingberg scored a long distance goal on the Edmonton Oilers netminder, scoring his seventh point in eight games for Dallas.  After Jason Spezza won a faceoff, Klingberg unleashed a waffling, fluttering slap shot that eluded Fasth's glove to give Dallas the 1-0 lead and giving Dallas Eakins a little more goalie-related heartburn.  Klingberg would later add an assist on Tyler Seguin's goal in the second period, moving him into…

    DUSSELDORF, November 25- Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has ruled out bringing Germany winger Marco Reus to Stamford Bridge for next season amidst speculation about the Borussia Dortmund star’s future. Reus has a contract with Dortmund until 2017, but a release clause means he could leave last season’s Bundesliga runners-up at the end of the season for 25 million euros ($31m).

Clyne won his first two England caps against Slovenia and Scotland during the recent international break and the right-back was the man of the moment for Southampton as well thanks to his crucial 81st minute strike at Villa Park.

    Many people have questioned if Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins is really as good as most people believe. Perkins’ claim to fame was when he was with the Boston Celtics and how he defended Dwight Howard when he was with the Orlando Magic. Since Perkins joined the Thunder, his defense has not been the same against some the big men in the Western Conference.

Anthony chose the money and the belief that team president Phil Jackson can build a championship team around him. Before the Knicks lost to the Houston Rockets last night, Anthony was asked how close was he to signing with Houston.

    There are thousands and thousands of youth sports teams, but how many of them are really doing team the right way? As a sports mom for 21 years, I watched my kids play on over 100 teams, and if I am being honest I will have to say that a lot of them had no clue about how to do team the right way. What makes a good team? As a coach, here are the team characteristics you should be striving to nurture, and as a parent, here’s the kind of team you should be seeking.

They hold a special place in pop culture history, and sometimes we wish they could hop out of the TV and give us a pep talk.

    Cleveland (6 - 4) 27 @ Atlanta (4 - 6) 24: The Browns stumbled at home last week in a game they really needed to win. Four of their last six are on the road as they head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons. This is an interesting pick as neither team has exhibited overpowering offenses, so the matchups will be important. The Brown give up a lot of yards on the ground, but the Falcons don't have a very effective running game.Tennessee (2 - 8) 20 @ Philadelphia (7 - 3) 30: The Eagles looked pathetic last week, but then again the Packers are making a lot of teams look pathetic over the last few…

    Several SEC teams are playing bye weeks disguised as FCS football teams. Kirk Herbstreet, on ESPN's College Gameday, suggested that these games shouldn't be played and that the teams should be penalized. I tend to agree, except the SEC is one of the few conferences to play league games in the first week or two of the season. Auburn, who is playing Samford today, opened the season against western division foe Arkansas. Georgia, who hosts Charleston Southern, opened their schedule with Clemson and South Carolina. And Clemson isn't in the ACC, but they opened against Georgia and host recent a…

The Chiefs face a short week after a really tough game against the Seahawks. It's difficult for me to predict that Oakland can pull the upset, but after my abysmal prognostications last week, I'm throwing caution to the wind and going with the home team on a Thursday night. Teams coming off games with the Seahawks tend to have a difficult time physically recovering, and in this case…

I couldn't get the Arizona teams right, but I got my other two Pac-12 picks correct.

And in the big one, Alabama prevailed against Mississippi State, probably securing a spot in this week's top four.My prediction for playoffs remains the same, despite TCU's lackluster performance at Kansas.

The Ducks are likely to be small favorites in this one, even though they have been a bit better on the road than at home this season, as Chicago is just .500 on the road. Both teams figure to be up for the game. Chicago leads the league in shots per game and it’s a bit surprising they don’t have a better record, considering their goal differential of +.9…

Walk up and down the pool imagining there is a football on the surface of the water, try and kick the football but when kicking point your toes and feel the pressure of the water on the shin and the tops of your feet. This drill will allow you to feel the water pushing against the leg as it should when you’re kicking. There will not be this much movement during your kick.

    “You know you’re addicted to running when your least favorite workout of the week says ‘rest’!” I am at the tail end of training for the Memphis Full Marathon.  Last weekend I was set to do 18 miles.  You would think that being a seasoned runner, I wouldn’t make dumb mistakes.  Ha!  Think again.  I ended up having one of my worst (if not the worst) training runs ever.  That week had been very busy so I hadn’t been to the grocery store. Yes it was one of those weeks where we frequented Wendy’s and Subway after a zillion practices with my kids. (No judging…

    About a week ago I ran the Murfreesboro Half (also known as the Middle Half) for the fifth year in a row. The best part about it is that I always go with a few of my friends. That always makes getting up at the crack of dawn a little easier. Registration for this race was over four months ago. It fills up in just hours so if you want to run it, you have to register the day it opens. What I didn’t know when I registered was that I would be in Philadelphia the whole week before, flying back home the night before the race. I am not going to lie, I was dreading it and even slightly considered…

    Current starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin, III, has had some problems executing his position to his head coach’s satisfaction. Last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought that into stark relief. RGIII threw interceptions when there was no need to force throws, appeared to feel that his protection in the pocket was breaking down when it was not and, as Jay Gruden said to the media on Monday following the game, “he took three-step drops when he should have taken five. He took a one-step drop when he should have taken three…” and so on.

    Ohio State (9-1) has had some trouble stopping the power running backs in the Big Ten this year and faces another this weekend in Indiana’s Tevin Coleman. The noon kickoff this weekend in Columbus will be a nice home coming for the Buckeyes that faced Minnesota on the road last Saturday. The Buckeyes will be favored by 30+ points and need a break from a tough couple of games to get healthy and let some younger players get some experience.

Wenn Dein Arzt die Diagnose “Darmträgheit” trifft, dann verschreibt er vielfach Abführmittel. Diese sorgen für ein einmaliges Absetzen des Kots, eine langfristige Verbesserung wird allerdings nicht erzielt. Die Medikamente verfügen über verschiedene Nebenwirkungen und stellen das Darmgleichgewicht nicht wieder her. Wenn Du die Ursachen nicht bekämpfst, dann werden die Verstopfungen mit der Zeit schlimmer werden.

  • FAITH & SPORTS MINUTE: Hitting Rock Bottom

    Darla
    21 Nov 2014 | 4:01 pm
    In sports, there are some games where everything goes wrong and a team has an embarrassing loss. Cincinnati Bengals’ head coach, Marvin Lewis, dealt with this recently and said: “Sometimes you gotta hit rock bottom before you can go all the way back up to the top, and we certainly were at rock bottom a few weeks ago on Thursday night.” We can argue whether the Bengals really hit rock bottom, since they still have a great chance to win their division, but the concept of hitting rock bottom is an interesting one. I think most of us can relate to this concept when we experience…

  • 5 Tips for Taking Great Leads and Putting Pressure on the Defense

    Stacie
    17 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    As a player, I loved running bases. It’s so super fun to push your limits, make your opponents sweat a little, and take extra bases any time the opportunity arises. Good baserunners give defenses something to think about. They’re always a threat. They make things tough for the opposing defense and add pressure to otherwise “routine” situations and plays. All this distraction on the bases often takes focus off the batter. It can also open up holes for batters to hit through. When you… take extra bases every chance you get put added pressure on the defense open up…

    If you want to get ready for competition… Compete less, train more. You don’t get better at competing by just competing more. You get better at competing by TRAINING. Effective learning, and development of skill work and technique, requires training under conditions where “results” don’t matter.You must be able to focus solely on HOW you’re doing what you do. Not what the actual result is. That’s what training is. Time for emphasis on process and technique. When you’re trying to improve a particular part of your swing, you probably won’t…

    Share this article: Click Here to Tweet It’s a common misconception that strength training slows athletes down. I used to believe that was true. After all I’d seen players add weight lifting to their training. Yes, they got stronger, but they got slower too. Slower in running. Slower in pitching. Slow is not a goal in softball training. When I went to college, our strength and conditioning coach had us to “lower weights” and “higher reps” in the weight room. My understanding was that we stayed “light” on the weights since speed was important in…

This past Sunday, and for the first time since then, the five-time NFL MVP led an offense to less than ten points in a game, which serves as a suggestion that times are a-changing in the NFL, and the pre-season Super Bowl favourite Denver Broncos can no longer carry that moniker.

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • Jim Caldwell’s 11-game referendum as Detroit Lions head coach

    Mike
    24 Nov 2014 | 7:03 am
    Jim Caldwell was trying to minimize the pain, get out before the bomb went off. The questions didn’t stop. Most of them were the same, some variation of, ‘Why has the offense sucked?’ Caldwell let the pressure pierce him. His demeanor changed. He spoke clear and fast, but with bitterness. He was either a man without answers or one with answers he’d rather not say. Caldwell spent a lot of his press conference saying he needed to “look at the film.” The reason for the offensive struggles? We’ll have to take a look at the film. How were the Patriots so…
  • Tracing the Detroit Red Wings’ roster roots: How one draft pick in 1990 is still paying dividends

    Mike
    21 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Thank this guy for Darren Helm On June 16, 1990, the NHL converged upon BC Place Stadium in Vancouver for the NHL Entry Draft. The Red Wings’ Bryan Murray was in his first year as coach and GM and was tasked with improving a team that had posted a 28-38-14 the previous season and finished last in the Norris Division Murray selected Keith Primeau with the third overall selection. The Red Wings had no second-round selection, so Murray’s next pick came in at the top of the third, when he selected Vyacheslav “Slava” Kozlov with the 45th overall pick. Primeau would become…
  • Jimmy Howard isn’t getting better, he’s just sucking less

    Mike
    19 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Red Wings Twitter exploded after Jimmy Howard made the save above in Detroit’s 5-0 win over Columbus on Tuesday. Most of them said roughly the same thing: “I’ve been a Howard detractor, but he’s been really good this year.” Howard’s goals against average is down to 1.97 from 2.66 and his save percentage has risen 14 points — from .910 to .924 — in comparison to last year. Want to bring analytics into it? Howard had 8.3 Goalie Point Shares for the Red Wings last season. That’s 8.9 percent of Detroit’s 93 points. This year Howard has…
  • What facing a real-life Monstars football team taught us about the Detroit Lions

    Mike
    17 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    Jim Caldwell was calm. Matt Stafford was calm. Ndamukong Suh was short — but calm. They stood at the podium and in the hallway and spouted off about how they had to be better, how that Cardinals team was good, how the offense needed to score off those two interceptions. Those could be their true emotions. But I imagine when they reconvene on Tuesday there will be a little fear. Let’s get it out of the way: the officiating wasn’t good. Fox’s officiating analyst, Mike Pereira, came on TV and proclaimed the Ebron play at the end of the half was a certain first down only to…
  • Red Wings rumor roundup: Tyler Myers, Mike Green, Marc Methot, Tom Gilbert all linked to Detroit; Daniel Alfredsson deadline coming

    Mike
    16 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Every Sunday I’ll bring you a recap of all the legitimate Red Wings-related transaction rumors from the previous week. • TSN’s Darren Dreger (via Chris Nichols) say the Red Wings have been “the most persistent and consistent” team in their pursuit of Tyler Myers. The last Dreger heard the Sabres were asking for Dylan Larkin, another prospect and maybe Jakub Kindl. • Dreger also says the Red Wings are one of the teams interested in Senators defenseman Marc Mehot but Ottawa hasn’t had any serious negotations in three weeks. Things should be clearer a week from…

  • New Yorker rips Redskins with new cover

    Thomas Threlkeld
    24 Nov 2014 | 9:09 am
    The New Yorker magazine’s cover for the December 1 issue, hitting the news stands as millions of Americans prepare for Thanksgiving, takes a pretty sharp jab at the Washington Redskins. The cover shows happy pilgrims, dressed in Redskins jerseys, welcoming grim-looking Amerindians to a Thanksgiving celebration. The Amerindians are dressed in traditional garb, while the pilgrims are smoking, drinking, cheering and watching football on television. Bruce McCall, the artist responsible for the cover, explained it this way: “This is 2014, and it seems a little late to be dealing with that…

    Another week, another loss.  It’s the going reality of the Washington Redskins and it’s fan base.  The Redskins fell to the 49ers on the road, 17-13. THUMBS UP RB Alfred Morris:  Again, week in and week out, it gets difficult to award Thumbs Up when the team loses, but then again, losing is so frequent with this football  team that if we didn’t find the positives we could chop half the title off this article.  Morris plays hard week in and week out.   It is almost sad to see his work ethic and performances wasted on a team like this.   Morris was the Redskins offense…

    THE SCORE 49rs 17 Redskins 13 THE GAME TURNED WHEN The Skins defense had the Niners on 4th and one from their own 34 yard line after Jay Gruden won his first challenge of the season contesting a bad spot on the ball on third down. The Skins badly needed to make a stop — they almost certainly win the game if they do — and they could not stop Frank Gore from running up the middle from for three yards and continuing the drive. And that was it. The Skins defense acted as if it had been hit by a dump truck the rest of the drive. Kaepernick hit Anquan Boldin for 29 yards and then…

    Wizards point guard John Wall with 28 points, seven assists, six rebounds and four steals as Washington beat Cleveland 91-78 on Friday night at the Verizon Center. Leading 55-42 at the half, Wall singlehandedly kept the Cavs from getting back in it, scoring 17 points in the third quarter.

  • Wake ‘em up, Coach

    BSRadmin
    22 Nov 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Some members of the media will have you believe that the Giants players have stopped playing for their coach. While most of them are just stirring the pot, some of them are clueless. The Giants defense showed heart and played well enough to win under their embattled DC Perry Fewell. It was the offense, in particular Eli Manning, who gave the game to the 49ers. With Pugh out, Manning was under pressure all game and until the 4th quarter, the running game was no help. We have seen Eli have bad games but this was almost laughable. While I long for the days where the Giants would run it four…
  • Giants vs. 49ers Pregame Thoughts

    BSRadmin
    16 Nov 2014 | 7:58 am
    This week we’ll see if these Giants have any pride. Can you imagine how pumped Kaepernick is to run the read option against the Giants, who have had no answers to stop or even slow it down? The Giants must show discipline on defense this week or it will be another disaster. Can Perry Fewell put his defense in position to compete this week or will this team give another sub-par effort? On the other side of the ball, the running game should get a boost depending on how many snaps Jennings will play, but let’s hope Eli stays patient and doesn’t force the ball into double…
  • Giants vs. Seahawks Post Game Thoughts

    BSRadmin
    11 Nov 2014 | 5:35 pm
    The once proud Giants defense looked like a sub-par high school team on Sunday against an average Seahawk offense. The rest of the league knows you have to limit “Beastmode” and take away Wilson as far as the read option. For a while it looked promising and then, during a record setting performance by the Seahawks, it all collapsed drastically. I can’t believe at the highest level of football, the best coaches and players in the world, that the Giants had no adjustment to stop the “zone read.” When JPP was asked after the game, “Were there any adjustments…

And Pittsburgh’s defensive end, Cam Heyward, seemed just as confused as everybody else, tweeting this Saturday night:   Looks like the Biebs took a page out of rapper Drake’s book.

  • Tottenham Hotspur: What a Joke

    28 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    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…

    22 Jul 2014 | 2:24 am
    It’d be quite the understatement to suggest that Tottenham’s transfer movements have as far this summer been quiet underwhelming, with the only major dealings being players leaving the lane, as opposed to players coming in, however, this may well prove to be the most efficient summer in recent years.Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino begins to shape his Spurs side.It’s well known that we’ve needed a minor clear-out, with many players failing to live up to the hype that their names hold, looking specifically at players such as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, as well as a certain…

Sandro.The self-proclaimed, ‘Beast’, joined Tottenham in March 2010 for around £8 Million from Internacional. He experienced a stop start couple of years at the plan, having to play second fiddle in the defensive midfield role…

    Atletico Madrid host Olympiakos for what will be a hard fought match with a lot of goals, considering the group A leaders need to make amends after that shock defeat from the first leg. With two games to spare, Atletico are on the first place in the group with nine points, and Olympiakos hopes to qualify if they win in Madrid and Juventus does not win against Malmo. The La Liga champions are currently on the third place in the table, two points short of Barcelona and four from Real Madrid.

    A controversial red card shown to Gaston Ramirez cost Hull dearly as Tottenham came from behind to rise to 10th. Ramirez received for his marching orders for kicking out at Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen in an off the ball incident but there did not seem to be much malice in the coming together at all. Ex-Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore rifled the Tigers in front after just eight minutes but Harry Kane equalized soon after the hour. Christian Eriksen settled the occasion with an angled shot past Allan McGregor in the 90th minute to leave Hull fans cursing referee Craig Pawson.

    Liverpool’s Selhurst Park curse continued as Crystal Palace cruised to a 3-1 win to climb out of the bottom three while the Reds are now winless in four. Late strikes from Joe Ledley and an astonishing Mile Jedinak free-kick sealed the three points for Palace despite Liverpool taking the lead after just two minutes. Rickie Lambert scored his first goal in Liverpool colours to give his boyhood club a dream start before Palace pegged them back. It was a goal made in Southampton with Lambert latching onto Adam Lallana’s through ball before tucking the ball past Julian Speroni. Dwight Gayle…

    Peyton Manning stands on the sideline looking disparaged and frustrated during Denver’s dismal performance against the St. Louis Rams in St. Louis Missouri, November 16th, 2014. (Mandatory Credit: Charlie Riedel, Associated Press) If somebody were to ask any NFL expert who the number one Super Bowl contender was just a couple weeks ago, the answer would have been pretty much unanimous. No question, the Denver Broncos. After all, they boast one of the best offensive units in the league and their defense has – for the most part – been pretty darn consistent. Before week 9, they were…

    Amar’e Stoudemire #1 of the New York Knicks boxes out against the Denver Nuggets during the game at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. (Mandatory Credit: ESPN/Getty Images) Stop me if this has happened before: The New York Knicks are off to a dreadful start to the season, imbedded in a lengthy losing steak early on. They can’t seem to get out of their own way or into anyone else’s, lacking cohesiveness and execution on both sides of the ball. Sound familiar? The early season has produced striking resemblances to last year’s Knicks, who began 3-13 with an eight-game…

    Nate Silver
    21 Nov 2014 | 11:23 am
    Which teams are most likely to make college football’s first-ever four-team playoff? And which have the best chance of coming away with the national title?The quick answer is the obvious one: The Alabama Crimson Tide lead the way on both counts. They’re No. 1 in the playoff selection committee’s current rankings and No. 1 according to most computer systems, including ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI). Alabama is no stranger to postseason success, having won the national title in 2009, 2011 and 2012.But it won’t be easy for Alabama, or anyone else. To win the national title, the…
  • Skeptical Football: Patriots vs. Cardinals And An Interactive History Of The NFL

    The first 10 games of the NFL season are its exposition period — we get to know the characters and themes that we expect to see develop as the race to the playoffs unfolds.2 This year, like nearly every other in the past decade, the New England Patriots’ refusal to regress to the mean is a central storyline.Remember back when the Patriots were 0-1 and faced a must-win in Week 2? Well, they won. Then in Week 4 they dropped to 2-2, and the end of an era was supposedly nigh. Except no. Pats will be Pats, and now they’ve won their last six games en route to the best record in the AFC.

    Last Saturday, the Mississippi State Bulldogs — ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll, the Coaches Poll and the College Football Playoff committee’s rankings — lost to the Alabama Crimson Tide 25-20. The loss ruined the Bulldogs’ quest for their first undefeated season since 1940, when they went 10-0-1.But under college football’s new playoff system, which will select four teams to contend for the national championship, a late-season loss by a No. 1 team isn’t as devastating as in years past. Mississippi State, for instance, fell only to No. 4 in the committee’s rankings after it…

He's franchise player good. Unfortunately, Anthony Davis is All-Time Great good. The Brow has put together an incredible season thus far, including a 28 point, 9 rebound, 3 blocks, 2 steals performance. You know what other number he put up? 0. As in 0 assists. The Brow might be a black hole, or he's just so good that he doesn't need to pass. Either way, he's really, really good and with Eric Gordon out for the forseeable future (again), Davis should have a few extra…

What do you think dalton was thinking about last night? You know he didn't get any sleep. He just sat there thinking about Watt plowing through his line like a mallard duck, over and over and over again. Somehow, the Texans Fitzpackian offense will suck so much that the Bengals will field goal there way to victory, leaving an angry Watt sulking on the sideline.GB (-9) at MINLet's throw this out there: The…

Today, one of the biggest stars in the game is headed to one of the most storied franchises and one of the rising stars in the league has solidified his place in Seattle for the foreseeable future. First, Kyle Seager. He’s been a durable, solid option for the Mariners, and was rewarded for that with a 7-year, $100 million extension. Any other year, a 7-year deal would seem like a lifetime, but the 2104 free agency period will of course be shrouded by 13-year deals. Seager hit .268 last…

    Sri Lanka will be hoping to put India debacle aside and get back to the winning ways when they take on England in the first of seven one-day internationals in Colombo on Wednesday. The underprepared Islanders suffered a humiliating 0-5 at the hands of World Champions earlier this month in a series that was arranged hastily following West Indies’ withdrawal midway through India tour over a payment dispute. On the other hand England, who have lost 11 of 18 one-dayers this year, will aim to avenge their 3-2 defeat from Sri Lanka at home soil this summer. Match Facts What: Sri Lanka vs England…

    Aston Villa might be (or must be) dreaming to break out of their slump and end Southampton winning streak when they face each other at Villa Park on Monday night. Villa have lost six games straight and their losing streak was only halted by a goalless draw against West Ham United before proceeding to the international break Sitting on verge of relegation zone, Paul Lambert’s side badly needs to take a sharp U-turn and start putting things in right direction, a victory in the latest outing on home soil would certainly take them to the right direction.

  • Orton Signs with New York Jets for Pee Wee League

    31 Oct 2014 | 6:29 am
    Just when you thought the New York Jets couldn’t get any worse, in walks another team who is usually in the same boat. The Buffalo Bills, with Kyle Orton at the helm. Except the “helm” for Orton is more like a cruise control button on a vacuum cleaner. And that is exactly why the Jets have signed Orton to a new contract deal. That’s right, Kyle Orton is to be the new quarterback for the New York Jets. Although they will be calling themselves the Sunnyside Jets, and they will be finishing out their season with a bunch of 9 year-olds. Jets owner Woody Johnson said in a post-game…

  • Did Richard Sherman Call Roger Goodell After A Murder In Seattle On Sunday?

    SEATTLE- Fan favorite and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman has been under no police scrutiny after a murder was committed in Seattle on Sunday. Neither Sherman or Goodell will reveal specifics or if they even had a phone call causing media to draw conclusions about what kind of conversation could have taken place. Some media believe that a good story would be if one of the most liked players in the NFL did something illegal and called the league commissioner to try and decide the best course of action to cover it up and the two acted in mutual interest to preserve finical interests of…

    Matt Williams is showing himself to be an amateurish rookie manager. After inexplicably removing pitcher Jordan Zimmermann during Game 2 on the NLDS, a decision that’s justifiably being seen as an embarrassing lapse in judgment, the foolish manager took heat. Forget the heat though. Now he’s squarely in the furnace. With the Washington Nationals season ending in upsetting fashion, players were giving the media their final post game interviews of the season. That is, every player expect for Zimmermann. As Zimmermann approached his locker and signaled that he was ready for media questions,…

    Through the first quarter of the 2014 NFL season, certain statistics pop out. Peyton Manning, once thought to be out of football after neck surgery, is better and stronger than ever, nearly setting the league record for passing yardage against Arizona and closing in on Brett Favre’s touchdown record. Matt Ryan, never considered the strongest of quarterbacks, has had record-setting days against the Saints and the Buccaneers. The Dallas Cowboys, ordinarily the league standard for mediocrity, lead the NFC East due to the normally-fragile DeMarco Murray’s unexpectedly strong play and the…

Only Manuel Pellegrini offered him some chances during 2013/2014 season. However, after 7 matches in a row in Premier League, Joe Hart became the number 1 goalkeeper for City again. After 3 seasons, the 27 years old Romanian goalkeeper was transferred by Sunderland.

    Alexis Sanchez – The New Rising Star in EPL   Alexis Sanchez is becoming an influential player for Arsenal. Arsene Wenger signed him as a star and shortly the 25 years old Chilean started to justify his transfer fee. Alexis is currently the third top goalscorer in Premier League, with 8 goals in 10 matches, behind City’s Sergio Aguero and Chelsea’s Diego Costa. With 12 goals in the last 14 games in all competitions, Alexis Sanchez seems to have a great start and Gunners fans believe that he can be as good as Thiery Henry or Dennis Bergkamp.

The experienced Italian boss had to work with a locker room that was split by the differences between the Portuguese group (Pepe and Fabio Coentro were Mourinho’s favorites) and the Spanish group (well know disputes with Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas). Don Carlo managed to reunite the group, bring back the good atmosphere and surprise everyone with his unexpected tactical approach (reinventing players…

    What better way than to spend a Wednesday night than some “World Championship” Boxing. I’m not 100% exactly sure what the “Silver” title is or entails but it certainly doesn’t entitle the holder to be a “full” World Champion. Anthony “The Man” Mundine is certainly no stranger to these type of titles, as although he claims to be a 3 time World Champion, he has only ever been an “Interim” title holder (as there was a “Super” Champion above him at the same time) or the very lightly regarded IBO Champion, which is…

    bignbeefy
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:40 am
    It’s always a long off-season for the A-League. And what makes it even worse is that we have to wait nearly 2 months after the Europeans kick off and wait patiently for the more traditional “Aussie” sports to wrap up their playoff series before Round 1 can commence. The Victory had recruited unbelievably well in the off-season, but it would remain to be seen what Kevin Muscat (the world’s dirtiest player) would do with his gameplan. Melbourne have played the past 2 years without a central striker, preferring 2 wingers instead (yes, still doesn’t make sense does it??) and have…

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:18 pm
    There are 23 men short-listed for FIFA’s 2014 Ballon d’Or (Footballer of The Year). None of them are English. Does this mean that English footballers are just not good enough? Does that also explain the reason why the English team failed to get pass the group stages in 2014 World Cup final? Before you say anything, note that Spain also suffered the same fate in Brazil and yet three of their players are in the short list. Baffled? Don’t be… Just look at the 23 players selected(see below). Those are awesome players. Pic credit: www.fifa.com What English Players Have Done…

    I was still savouring the moment when Van Persie scored a last minute goal against Chelsea this morning to rescue a point for Manchester United when this news broke up. A footballer shot dead! Quite shocking and bewildering. This incident reportedly happened at Vosloorus, South of Johannesburg. South Africa’s goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa who played for Orlando Pirates was found dead at his girlfriend’s house. In a statement, the South African Police Service said two men had entered the house, around 20:00 (18:00 GMT), while a third man remained outside. All three fled after shots were…

    Di kalangan rakyat Asia, teknik spin ini agak popular. Selain dari kosnya yang lebih murah dari segi peralatan dan mudah dikuasai, bermain bowling teknik spin sesuai ini digunakan di pusat-pusat bowling di Asia yang kebanyakkanya tidak menjaga lane dengan sempurna. Oleh itu, menggunakan teknik hook menjadi susah, lantaran lane yang tidak terjaga menyebabkan hook yang dibuat kurang menjadi (tiada grip pada lane) atau sering tersasar. Teknik spin agak mudah dikawal kerana pergerakkan bola yang agak lurus. Bola melalui beberapa “board“/papan sahaja sebelum sampai ke poket tengah dan…

    After seven matches, the Premier League’s table is beginning to take its usual shape.  Chelsea is at the top, followed by Manchester City, with Manchester United is not far behind at fourth.  The only odd member in the top four is surprisingly Southampton who sold more than £100 millions worth of talents in the last transfer window. I don’t think they will last long though and I do expect Arsenal to complete the top four come May next year.

    Jeff Fisher Says He Expects Sam Bradford To Be Under Center For Rams Next YearNov 25, 2014 The St. Louis Rams have struggled to a 4-7 record this season, largely due to inconsistent quarterback play. Usual starter Sam Bradford tore his ACL in the preseason, forcing backups Shaun Hill and Austin Davis into action. This was the latest in a long line of injuries for Bradford, and since he’s under contract for $13 million next season, many assumed Bradford would not be returning to St. Louis next year. However, according to head coach Jeff Fisher, he expects Bradford to be the…

Als ein Großteil der Zuschauer bereits die Halle verlassen hatte, weil die Hawks mit elf Punkten Vorsprung führten, trafen die Wizards plötzlich in einer Minute genauso viele Dreier wie im ganzen Spiel zuvor.

    According to a 2013 survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, 43% of American physicians use mobile health technology for clinical purposes. That number is bound to increase dramatically thanks to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approving new services to be covered in 2015, including mental health services. Still, due to the limited number of mobile health services covered by American health insurance companies, the majority and most popular mobile health applications are designed to provide preventative care.

Some prick kills the dog, and the assassin goes back to work. John Wick doesn’t need a complicated, dramatic plot to be the reason why we still got to movie theaters.

    Sam Bird has won the 2014 Putrajaya ePrix, the second round of the 2014/2015 Formula E world championship. The British driver started from 2nd place and only overtook two drivers over the course of the race to take a comfortable win. Championship leader and winner last time out in Beijing Lucas di Grassi and eDams driver Sebastien Buemi took 2nd and 3rd despite having started from 18th and 19th place. The Putrajaya circuit showed that it was a track to be respected early on during practice. Sam Bird topped the session for Virgin Racing by 6 tenths of a second over Jerome D’ambrosio…

Despite the killer storm, this hasn’t stopped players and native Buffalonians from enjoying one of the worst winter storms ever. While the Buffalo sports teams have had to either relocate or worry about fans showing up to the games because of the snow, some residents have used this winter storm as an opportunity to get creative.

    24 Nov 2014 | 2:44 pm
    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

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

Even in retirement, Jordan hasn’t lost his trash talking touch. It took the ever-wiley Jordan only a few hours on Twitter before getting into a spat with golf pro Keegan Bradley.

    The first half was one to forget for the Bears on Sunday against Downtown Josh McCown and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs entered the half leading 7-0 and their typically porous defense had somehow shut down the Bears. According to Advanced Football Analytics, a website that uses advanced NFL research and analysis to predict various statistics such as win probability, the Bucs actually had an 88 percent chance of winning the game at halftime. That seems ridiculously high considering that they are the Buccaneers and it was only a 10-0 lead, but you may recall that the Bears looked…
