    With the release of J-Lo and Iggy Azalea’s “Booty,” preceded by Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda,” it’s been quite a period for the female posterior. But did you know that this seemingly tiny brush fire has really been a full blaze that’s been burning since the start of the year. If you’re a fan, you’ve allegedly got director Joseph Kahn to thank for it. @JosephKahn #Reductive — Shakit3am (@ShakiT3am) September 19, 2014 Kahn retweeted this image on Twitter and it sparked him to make claim to the “lesbian…

    Like any other Game of Thrones fan, I’m anxiously waiting for the day when Khaleesi’s dragons turn Westeros upside down. My obsession with the show and its fire-breathing reptiles has its limits, however. For example, I will NEVER EVER force my pet to look like a dragon. I don’t see why people in Russia think it’s totally cool to do so, but then again folks in China enjoy turning their dogs into pandas, so what do I know? If you watch the above clip all the way through, you’ll see that the same pet salon has painted a dog the colors of a bumblebee. SO MUCH SIGH.

Wilson kept Manning and the Denver Broncos from seeing the ball in overtime. He led Seattle on an 80-yard drive on the first possession of the extra session, capped by Marshawn Lynch's 6-yard touchdown run for a 26-20 victory over the Broncos on Sunday. The 43-8 blowout by Seattle (2-1) was replaced this time by Denver (2-1) rallying from a 17-3 fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime by going 80 yards against the…

    The Penalty Flag

  • Jerome Simpson continues to be a joke

    Wes Brunner
    19 Sep 2014 | 11:46 am
    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times; well…find a different uniform. Once again, Jerome Simpson has proven that he has no control over his love of drugs and alcohol. Simpson was cited for marijuana possession and an open container on July 7. With as many distractions as the Vikings have had the past week, I think it’s safe to say that we need to send him packing. The only reason that we’ve kept him around for so long was for his “potential” as a deep threat. Well, you can’t be a deep threat if you’re constantly in trouble with the law.
  • What we’ve learned from the NFL through Week 2

    James Turnage
    18 Sep 2014 | 2:27 pm
    I can describe what I haven’t seen in two weeks of the NFL in a single word; DEFENSE. I have never seen so many wide open receivers in every game I watched. That included the Vikings, the Patriots, the Packers, the Chargers, the Raiders, and the Champion Seahawks.  I knew the NFL had become an offensive league, but Sunday’s lack of defensive play was appalling. There were other indicators of what the 2014 season will be like in the next 15 weeks. Gains or losses through free agency have helped some teams and hurt others. The New York Giants are as bad as they were in 2013.

    18 Sep 2014 | 2:17 pm
    A commentary by James Turnage A continuing increase in the number of NFL players who are experiencing legal troubles or who have violated the league’s substance abuse policy is creating a rumble within the community of players, coaches, sports writers and fans. That, combined with rule changes, often unjustly enforced, is resulting in the question; is the NFL in trouble? Now a superstar, Adrian Peterson is in the news, and not in a positive way. Is this the result of a league which has become so greedy, it has overlooked potential problems with young men who become overnight millionaires?

    18 Sep 2014 | 2:08 pm
    Critics met the moves made by Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman with much skepticism this off-season. Among the moves panned was the decision to let arguably its top two play-makers in the secondary, Mike Mitchell and Captain Munnerlyn, sign big free agent contracts elsewhere. He replaced them by signing veteran castoffs such as Roman Harper, Thomas DeCoud, and Antoine Cason to fill the holes in their depleted secondary. Allowing his second and third receivers to seek employment elsewhere was also criticized, but not nearly as much as his decision to cut Steve Smith Sr., the…

    Is having luck how the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off a win Monday night? I’m sure there are plenty of message boards and bar-goers that think so. And there are even more that think the refs handed them the game. Honestly, the truth is somewhere in between Eagles Monday night win. Philly played an uneventful, albeit an atrocious, first half. Nick Foles held onto the ball too long (and he had plenty of time to do so) and still missed wide-open receivers. Foles missed an open Riley Cooper across the middle several times, once in a key spot that would have given the Eagles a crucial first…

    Christmas Ape
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    NBC As bad as the Steelers looked 10 days ago in Baltimore, they looked that good tonight in Carolina. The Pittsburgh offensive line dominated what he been known to be an awesome Carolina front seven. The absence of Greg Hardy is a conspicuous difference but it’s hard to pinpoint that sort of swing on just one player. While the Steelers were allowing 174 rushing yards per game entering this evening, they ran for 264 yards themselves while only allowing 42 on the ground. Even with the win, it was a potentially costly night for the Pittsburgh defense, with Jarvis Jones, Ryan Shazier and…

    NBC I thought the Steelers played two Thursdays ago but turns out they’re actually playing tonight as it’s been a showdown of field goals. On the game’s opening drive, the Steelers got a couple first downs that looked like they took all the effort in the world to get. Even still, they were punting near midfield. Carolina’s opening drive got them a field goal for the opening score but it seemed so easy that it seemed like the opening of the floodgates for points for the Panthers, so through the rest of the first half, that wouldn’t be the case. The teams traded…

    Via Instagram Most so-called experts expected the Panthers to regress significantly this season following their 12-4 campaign of 2013. They’d lost just about their entire receiving corps. Though their front seven is still among the best in the NFL (though perhaps less so now that Greg Hardy may be done for the year), the Carolina secondary is still a weakness. Nevertheless, the Panthers enter Week 3 at 2-0. Granted those two wins come against the Bucs and the Lions, but, based on how Pittsburgh fared in Week 2, it’s not as though the Steelers look like tougher competition than…

But, you still lost and your quarterback’s arm strength is still diminishing past Chad Pennington levels. It was a great comeback to tie at the end of regulation, but it’s not enough for me to hope that this is a repeat Super Bowl in five months. At least Aqib Talib got in a People’s Elbow. It’s the most electrifying move in concussive entertainment. CBS

    Those of you who are acutely familiar with the NFL rule book know that if a player’s hair reaches below his helmet, it’s perfectly legal to grab said hair as a means of tackling him. That was bad news for Marshawn Lynch on this play. As Lynch is going out of bounds, T.J. Ward grabs him by a lock of his hair, ripping it off in the process. Ever the cool customer, Lynch simply picks it back up, and gets on with life like the whole thing was no big deal. It was pretty startling to watch, though.

He continued his fine start to the 2014 season on Sunday in his team's convincing Week 3 victory over the Carolina Panthers. It appeared wide receiver Markus Wheaton was all set to join him for a big day in fantasy football when he contorted his body and latched on to a Ben Roethlisberger bullet in the front corner of the end zone early in the contest. However, the officials ruled that he failed to reestablish himself in bounds and called the pass…

Although everyone overpaid for the sophomore running back on draft day, his season will only get better from here. Expected to break the 100-yard barrier regularly, Lacy has instead needed three weeks to collect that many yards on the ground. Heading into Week 4, many owners' first-round pick has amassed 36 carries for 113 yards. The Green Bay Packers rusher has yet to score a touchdown. On Sunday, Lacy experienced what is hopefully his 2014 nadir, coughing up his first fumble of the season while arriving at…

Now it looks as though his chances of glorious retribution in the Breeders Cup Classic might prove equally as elusive after he finished a one-paced sixth in the $1m Grade II Pennsylvania Derby at Parx Racing with a performance that lacked the electric wattage of his wins in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes.A background chatter of skepticism had accompanied California Chromes preparations in the lead up to the race: would a yawning near four-month…

    While Go Pro Camera's have been wildly successfully over the past handful of years, many were unsure of their choice of going public on the New York Stock Exchange. Mainly because of the uncertainty surrounding the companies ability to sustain such large levels of growth in the future and whether or not sophisticated investors would be interested in investing in the company. The most unfortunate thing for my bank account was that I failed to invest in Go Pro once the company went public.For those of you who don't follow the stock market, Go Pro Cameras has been on an uphill climb ever…

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…
  • See The Game Through The Eyes Of The Quarterback

    Going into the start of football season, there is plenty of expert commentary on what makes up the “right stuff” when evaluating quarterbacks. Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line. Defensive players are…
  • How To Train The Runner's Brain - An Interview With Jason Fitzgerald

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:49 am
    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…

    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

    It’s rather interesting; when championships are spoken of, a great deal of people are actually speaking of surrounding social affairs.  The commentary centers upon commercials, foods, drinks, and places for getting our groove on. Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience. In today’s society, we don’t like others to encroach upon whom we support. The choice, bluntly stated, is individually ours to make. Bestow all the accolades you desire on your team, just…

    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

    The Anaheim Ducks are coming off one of the best seasons in team history with regards to regular season wins. They finished second in the league behind only Boston, who edged them out by one point. They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup. At first glance, people just see the massive point totals coming from the Ducks’ Superstars – Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. What most people do not notice…

The rest become good at losing and making excuses.  Which category are you in now?  Champions have mastered the mental game by learning to control their fears and dominating their emotions.  I have been studying the mental aspect…
  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    Eitan Hefetz
    22 Aug 2014 | 9:59 am
    With sponsorship spending on endurance sports events exceeding the $108 million per year, its no wonder big business is sponsoring these events. The mid-to-high socio-economic class of endurance events participants attracts many brands to sponsor endurance events. Interestingly enough many of these big business brands are not the typical sporting brands one would expect to find. Would a laundry detergent brand make a good running race sponsor? How about a deodorant brand or a cellular carrier? Putting your brand’s logo in front of your target audience is one thing, while tying your…

The idea was that I would talk about the Big Ten's amazing victories over out of conference foes this weekend, and then every time the actual name of the team would come up, I'd just write [REDACTED] and then come up with a bunch of really terrible fake names for Eastern Michigan's players and coaches.

    Nicholas Jervey

    The Big Ten needed Week 4 to go well to ameliorate weeks of looking like chumps. The conference responded by going 12-1 – its best record of the season – with blowouts, road wins and an upset of a ranked team. For once, the Big Ten looked like an actual power conference. Indiana 31, No. 18 Missouri 27 Indiana was all smiles after the upset. After blowing the Bowling Green game last week, the national consensus was that Indiana would get shredded by a ranked Missouri team. Instead, the Hoosiers earned their first win over a ranked team since 2006, in Columbia no less. I'm as surprised as…
  • Will J.T. Barrett Need to Win a Game Himself for Ohio State This Season?

    Tim Shoemaker
    21 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    It's often said of "game-managing" type quarterbacks that they don't have to win the game, all they have to do is not lose it. Don't turn the ball over, don't force things, don't make mistakes and you can rely on the rest of the team to be successful. When Ohio State lost superstar quarterback Braxton Miller to a season-ending shoulder injury, it replaced him with one of those quarterbacks in J.T. Barrett. And in his first three collegiate starts, Barrett has flashed more good than bad. He was efficient against Navy (12 for 15, 226 yards, two TDs); up-and-down in the loss to Virginia Tech (9…

    I did pick LSU #10 going into the season and #7 most recently, and I had not ranked Mississippi St.; but I can’t say I’m shocked by this outcome. I especially wasn’t surprised it came down to the last play, but I was surprised by the margin in the visitors’ favor after three quarters. You can only beat a rival like that so many years in a row. I know they’ve had some bad teams in that stretch, but they’ve also had good teams and LSU has at least had mediocre teams who could have easily lost. I did think the streak would end in Starkville, so the idea of it being at home and at…

In that respect I'm very pleased with the result. But given that the offense is still mostly out of sync, there is definitely cause for concern.   According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, 34 of the 50 points the Patriots have scored through two games have come after the…

    Racism is alive and well (and disgusting).  Yes, we all should be able to see that.  That isn't news. Is Bruce Levenson a racist?  Is there a lesson there? The better lesson may be that Bruce Levenson let fear (albeit racially-based) and ignorance drive his business decisions. He and the NBA lost millions of dollars in Atlanta and drove a potentially valuable brand, the Atlanta Hawks, into the ground. It appears he is most guilty of being an ignorant, horrible business man. How did he do that? Very simply, he failed in some extremely basic ways.  He forgot some…

    Tweet Today’s post is courtesy of guest blogger Karan Popli. In the wee hours of September 13, 2014, while most were nursing their hangover or busy letting their hair down, Formula E, a new motorsports property successfully launched its first race in Beijing. For most Americans racing is all about NASCAR or IndyCar, maybe a bit of NHRA and Drift racing, however globally Formula One is considered the NFL of motorsports. This new racing series is not trying to compete with Formula One, however it wants to create a niche of its own. A few things that make this series extremely unique…

    Tweet Today’s post is a very short one with one very specific piece of advice for teams. While I know that sponsors pay a lot of money for logo placement all across your press conference backdrop, there are times when logic would dictate use of a team-only branded background. This is especially true when dealing with controversial issues, as we saw this week with Radisson and the Vikings regarding the Adrian Peterson abuse charges. I don’t know if Radisson would have stayed a sponsor if their logo wasn’t featured prominently during this, but it certainly didn’t…

    With the rise in recognition of digital currency, there can become the necessity to ensure all those coins are retained securely. The coins themselves are normally safe, even so, the genuine hazard to the wallet is the theft of a private key, or a password to obtain the private key. A wonderful way to retain coins protected is by utilizing “cold storage” to hold the private keys out of the reach of any person looking to get a hold of them. A bitcoin paper wallet is a public and private key for an address that is physically produced. By obtaining the physical object, there is hardly any…
  • Florida Gators – Tennessee Vols, A Brief History

    In recent memory, the third game of the season in the SEC means the first fight for the SEC East lead.  Granted, the past several years have not been kind to Derek Dooley’s UT Vols, but the Orange and White have high hopes. On the other side line, first year Gators coach Will Muschamp fully realizes the importance of this game. Both teams are currently sitting at 2-0 and neither have played anyone of appreciable ability.  That all changes this weekend as the Vols travel to The Swamp to take on their SEC East nemesis, the Florida Gators. I believe in history.  So, what does the series…

    The Big Tip

  • True Happiness

    Emily Brown
    17 Sep 2014 | 7:36 pm
    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

What should really give fans hope is how the Steelers won. A maligned defense quieted its critics for at least one week after it put consistent pressure on Panthers q

Though I respect Peter very much, I have to strongly disagree. As of Sunday (the day the Globe pubishes expanded stats), Betts had played 39 games with the Sox. His .283 average was by far the best of the Sox “young hopefuls”, including Xander Bogearts, Christian Vasquez, Jackie Bradley Jr and Will Middlebrooks. His OBP of .357  was one of the tops on the team. His power figures were not great, but he has shown some speed with 5 stolen…

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:26 pm
    The Panthers are having a frustrating evening on Sunday Night Football against the Steelers and things were perfectly summed up in this one play in which Carolina’s rookie punt returner Corey Brown muffed a punt, casually picked it up before fumbling it. The Steelers eventually scored a special teams TD and unofficially ended the Panthers chances of getting a big Week 3 win. [SB Nation] Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

  • Police to Investigate Racist Abuse Directed at Mario Balotelli

    News Desk
    21 Sep 2014 | 7:00 pm
    That’s not banter. There’s a lot of downright shameful things people say to one another — or people they don’t even know — and try to pass it off as “banter”, but following Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli’s rather lighthearted tweet regarding Manchester United’s shock loss to Leicester City yesterday, the torrent of abuse hurled at the 24-year old certainly did not qualify under any stretch of the imagination. Now, it looks like at least some of the neanderthals that thought it fit to racially abuse the Italian over an off-handed remark…
  • Brendan Rodgers on West Ham United Loss: Post-Match Interview and Disappointment in London

    Steven McMillan
    20 Sep 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Below standard? Nope — straight up ugly. A 3-1 defeat at the Boleyn Ground sent Liverpool crashing to their second Premier League defeat on the hop. The Reds defence, or lack thereof, was once again the culprit as two goals within the opening ten minutes set their up for a hard go in the Capital. Raheem Sterling pulled one back before the break and the visitors looked more likely to leave East London with something rather than nothing as a second half resurrection pinned West Ham United back, but a late counter-attack saw Morgan Amalfitano secure the points for Sam Allardyce’s…

The 34-year old Anfield legend is slowing approaching the end of his time with the Reds and he feels that the former Sunderland man would be the perfect replacement for him. “I would love nothing better than when I call it a day here to pass the armband over to him, not just because he’s a great player but…

I’d say it was two weeks in a row that we conceded an early goal to put our backs against the wall before the match even really got started, but that’s not entirely true — this week, we gave up two of them. Oddly enough, West Ham United looked a bit like the Liverpool of last season that we’d all become accustomed to as they raced out of the gate. Winston Reid headed home his first goal in just under a year after a mere 80-seconds had been played and…

While it’s pretty safe to say that the Anfield outfit have problems at the back, whether or not you blame the Belgian shot stopper for the vast majority of those woes tells what side of the fence you’re on. Some supporters just don’t trust him, but Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has given his backing to the under fire 26-year old — a player he brought in to replace the then incumbent Pepe…

  • Utah Utes Football: Travis Wilson’s Bloody Face

    Jason Hodges
    21 Sep 2014 | 5:32 am
    A hush fell over the Utah section of the Big House on Saturday. Travis Wilson, having just returned this season after suffering a potentially career ending concussion last year, took a dive to try to extend a play. That was a very poor decision on his part. While in the air a Michigan defender hit him at the knees, causing him to pummel towards his face as another defender rocks him from the side pushing him out of bounds. Wilson lands on his face, which tears off his helmet and lacerates his nose, and his feet and body bend backward over his head which appears to hyper extend his neck. The…

    By: Nathan Herman I don’t know about you but I am so excited for Utah to travel to the big house to play the Michigan wolverines. Michigan is 2-0 at home this season and so far has gone 5-2 against teams in the big house (last year). On the flip side Utah has played very well against teams in the pac-12 on the road. Coach Whittingham said that his players are used to playing in big places like the Coliseum, Rose Bowl or Auzten stadium and Utah has a strategy of their own. So that brings us to our first key matchup. 1. Utah’s noise, attendance, and experience vs. Michigan at home…

This game represents a great number of opportunities for BYU nationally speaking, and the players and coaches know it. Last years debacle in Charlottesville is well documented, so we won’t recap it here. Suffice it to say, BYU felt like it was the better team last year despite the loss, and they are looking forward to proving it Saturday in Provo.

Coming off two spectacular victories this season, the Wolverines will be the Utes first true test to determine just how good they really are. Road wins have been hard to come by for the Utes and it doesn’t get any easier this weekend. Here are my 4 Keys to beating the Wolverines: 1. Turnovers: The Utes have to win the turnover battle against Michigan no questions asked. The Offense has been turnover free so far through two games hopefully they can continue that trend.

    Week 4: BYU vs Virginia BYU gets their chance at redemption this Saturday afternoon when Virginia comes to Provo to take on the Cougars. The Virginia game last season was a huge let down. BYU coaches and players had touted their new “Go Fast, Go Hard” offense all summer and things fell flat with an 0-1 start. Much like we say that Texas was looking at a redemption game against BYU this season, we have had this Virginia game circled since the end of the first game last season. Another important note is that many voters will be keeping an eye on this game to use as a gauge to measure BYU…

    Jane Coaston
    21 Sep 2014 | 9:02 pm
    Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers blew the doors off a solid Panthers defense and a Carolina team that couldn't get out of its own way. The Steelers were looking to make a statement after losing to the Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 11. Mission: Accomplished. Pittsburgh ran circles around the Carolina Panthers and Cam Newton, who barely had time to complete his passes before being surrounded by blitzing Steelers defenders. After getting off to a slow start the offense got rolling against a very good Panther defense. The defense remained stout and even the special teams got in on the scoring.

    By the time Week Three rolls around, we can start to see the outlines of how a season's going to go. The Carolina Panthers may not be who we thought they were. The Pittsburgh Steelers, as it turns out, may be a whole lot more. The Steelers beat the Panthers in a game that wasn't even that close. Pittsburgh threw around Carolina like sacks of dog food on both sides of the ball. Pittsburgh's well-coached, well-managed, well-played game handed Carolina its first loss since Week One of 2013. A dull exhibition of field goals — four in the first half, three by Pittsburgh — exploded into an…

    The one thing nobody ever dreamed to worry about this season was the Green Bay Packers offense, especially since quarterback Aaron Rodgers was fully healthy again. The Week 1 struggles at Seattle were understandable, because the Seahawks’ defense is almost impossible to beat, especially at home. Sunday’s loss to the Lions is a little tougher to explain. Green Bay’s 19-7 loss was unlike practically any loss in the Aaron Rodgers era, or even back through the Brett Favre era. The Packers defense forced three turnovers and held the Lions’ potent offense to a manageable 19 points. And…

Football is a complex sport, and there are many different positions and roles on a pitch which can be tough to get a full understanding of at a young age, but doing the correct drills and spending time practicing the fundamentals of the game can pay dividends. Improving Agility and Strength. The sport demands that you are both strong and agile and you may be using entirely new…
  • Getting a Job in Sports

    10 Apr 2014 | 5:30 pm
    There was a time where jobs in sports were extremely rare, but in the modern age we live in, sports teams can be huge global brands with requirements for everything from ground staff to marketing staff. The structure of sports clubs mirrors that of many other entertainment industries, there are always people required to ensure that things work technically, so for instance that the stadium is up to scratch and kept safe and functioning, and coaches and more to work with the players. Behind the scenes there is an administrative side to it as well, so if this is where your skills lay then there…

  • Ex Lampard ends Chelsea’s perfect start

    21 Sep 2014 | 10:35 am
    Frank Lampard scored against former club Chelsea to earn 10-man Manchester City a 1-1 draw with Jose Mourinho’s side at Eastlands on Sunday. Substitute Andre Schurrle put visitors Chelsea ahead shortly after City’s Pablo Zabaleta was sent off for a second bookable offence. Premier League leaders Chelsea looked set to pull off a fifth straight league win in as many games this season to move eight points clear of the champions. But Lampard, on loan from New York City after ending his 12-year stint at Chelsea, turned in from James Milner’s cross five minutes from time —…

Balotelli, part of the Reds side which lost 3-1 at West Ham on Saturday, tweeted: “Man Utd…LOL” in response to United’s 5-3 loss at the King Power Stadium. His tweet was met by a string of racist messages, including one from an account called @CraigSainsbury which read: “F*** you Mario you f****** n*****.

  • Wenger never doubted Ozil class

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:51 am
    LONDON, September 21- Arsene Wenger insists he never thought about dropping Mesut Ozil after the Germany midfielder finally delivered a dominant display in Arsenal’s 3-0 victory against Aston Villa. Ozil produced a fine finish to open the scoring from Danny Welbeck’s pass and then the England striker scored his first Arsenal goal two minutes later after his team-mate had returned the favour. Aly Cissokho’s own goal made it three goals in four minutes for the rampant Gunners, but it was the influential Ozil who stole the spotlight at the end of a week in which Wenger had to…

    ROME, September 15- Roma officials on Sunday slapped a not-for-sale tag on Kevin Strootman amid reports that Manchester United are still pursuing the Dutch midfielder. Reports in the English media claim United manager Louis van Gaal is determined to sign Strootman, who is still recovering from a long injury lay-off, despite Roma placing a 75 million euro (£60m) price tag on the 24-year-old. Speaking to Sky Sport Italia prior to the Giallorossi’s home game against Cagliari, Roma director general Mauro Baldissoni said Strootman was not for sale. “We can’t wait to have him…

Mike Krzyzewski is the head coach is the head of the USA Basketball team. Recently, there have been questions about whether or not Krzyzewski is using Team USA as a showcase for himself and the Duke program.

    From my extensive experience and expertise, I can tell you for a fact that sports internships are among the hardest to garner. The bottom line is that they are extremely popular. Like the entertainment industry, people very much want to break into the sports field, and as is found with most industries nowadays, internships have become the route people now need to take to get their foot in the proverbial door. So how do you stand out and get yourself noticed? Be more interested than interesting My advice is to be more interested than interesting. What does that mean? It means to delve deep and…

    At first, the experience of youth sports for you and your child starts out innocent and fun.  Unfortunately, it usually doesn’t stay that way. As you are coasting along, enjoying the adventure, be prepared for these pitfalls that may trip you up and turn what should be a good season into a trying experience. Pitfall #1: “My Child is the Best” Even if your child is the strongest player on the team, the my-child-is-the-best mentality can very quickly distort into, “my child is the best, he should always be playing and he deserves an award” mindset. There’s nothing wrong with…

    There are some very compelling and important matchups in week three's NFL action.  It's virtually impossible for a team to start 0 - 3 and still make the playoffs, much less win a division.

    The season starts to ramp up a bit, with a smattering of intra- and inter-conference match-ups on the schedule. Of course, the Florida State - Clemson game, for a variety of reasons, is the headline game. But there are a few others that intrigue me, including Miami at Nebraska, a surprising Virginia team heading to BYU, Oklahoma at West Virginia and of course the battle of the ACC Techs in Blacksburg. We won't really get a good idea of where the top teams stand until league play starts in earnest next week, but this week will give us a sneak peak.Bowling Green (2 - 1) 20 @ (19) Wisconsin…

    A divisional matchup in the NFL and a game between top 20 teams in college will have many of us switching channels to catch all of the action tonight. Of course, there's always the DVR if you're adept at avoiding scores of the game you want to watch later. I say watch the NFL on CBS, since they're less likely to show the score of the college game as frequently. I use a strip of painter's tape on the bottom of my screen to cover any scores that run across there, especially on ESPN.

  • Receiver Skills Are Many, Getting Off The Jam is One

    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

  • O-Line: The double team

    Brad DeHaven
    21 Jul 2014 | 1:17 am
    Teaching an offensive line to work together is the most vital part to the success of an offense. From pass blocking to picking up a blitzing defensive player, a lineman must be ready to help his fellow teammate. One key fundamental which I feel should be taught is the double team. This can be done between the center and guard, guard and tackle, as well as tackle and TE. In my opinion the double team starts from the split between the lineman. If the lineman are too far apart, it will take too long for them to work together. By the time they do get to a position where they can function as one,…

    With several races coming up, I thought I would share my thoughts on the benefits of having people there to support you at a race.  One of the things that makes big races fun is the vast amount of spectators.  The masses of people bring huge amounts of energy to a course. I definitely loved the spectators this year at Boston, they were excited and they were loud.  However, if I had to pick a marathon I have done that I would say had my favorite crowd, I would pick Chicago without a doubt.  There was literally not a moment on the course when there weren’t rows and rows of people. …

(Real snow, not ice by the way). I have to say that the humidity in Orlando, wow, it was beyond humid. I would refer to it as swampy.  (Note to self, don’t do Disney World with the kids…
  • Brooks Glycerin 12 Review

    15 Aug 2014 | 3:01 pm
    If you have followed my blogs at all, then you know I am a long time Saucony  loyalist.  It takes a lot for me to choose another brand over Saucony.  Maybe I am a creature of habit, but I have always had success with them. Second in line of my favorites I would say is definitely Brooks. I have had a few pairs of the Ghost and the Glycerin through the years.  A few months ago I bought both a pair of Saucony Triumphs and a pair of Brooks Glycerin. Both are great shoes with a lot of cushioning.  They are top of the line for both brands, and worth every penny. My issue with the last…

  • Santa Clara Broncos Top Davis 3-1 in Front of Huge Crowd

    21 Sep 2014 | 10:05 pm
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. – In front of a raucous crowd of students the night before classes begin, Santa Clara women’s soccer topped UC Davis by a final of 3-1. The win puts the Broncos at 5-4-0 on the season while the Aggies are 3-7-0. Santa Clara returns to the field Fri., Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at CSU Northridge. “Today was a good step for us,” said Santa Clara head coach Jerry Smith. “We controlled the game which is what you want to do. I thought our quality in the attacking third in the first half, when we led 2-0, wasn’t what it needed to be. In the second half I thought we looked…
  • Texas Soccer back in win column after 2-0 triumph at Texas State

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:30 pm
    Box Score SAN MARCOS, Texas – Goals from sophomore forward Jasmine Hart and senior midfielder Sharis Lachappelle powered Texas’ (5-3-2) return to the win column on Sunday night at the Bobcat Soccer Complex as UT defeated Texas State (5-3-1), 2-0. The Longhorns out-shot the Bobcats by a 26-14 total, while managing an 8-3 advantage on corner kicks. The goals for Hart and Lachappelle were their second and first of the campaign, respectively. Junior goalkeeper Abby Smith tied a career-high by making eight saves in the contest, equaling her output against Texas Tech back on Oct. 12, 2012.
  • Delaware Women’s Soccer Falls to Penn 1-0

    21 Sep 2014 | 8:28 pm
    NEWARK, Del.– Despite an offensive flurry in the closing seconds of the game, the University of Delaware’s soccer team could not capitalize on its chances Sunday as the Blue Hens lost to Penn 1-0. Penn midfielder Kaitlyn Moore scored on a header from a cross-field pass from Erin Mikolai to put the Quakers up 1-0 at the 39:07 mark. That goal would prove to be enough for the Quakers, but UD did not back off. The Hens (4-5) provided themselves with numerous scoring chances in the second half, but were unable to convert them into the tying goal. Rachel Vaccaro and Mikala Kin led the team with…

    Box Score HOUSTON – In a sun-drenched afternoon, junior midfielder Rebekah Tovar coolly walked to the penalty box and sailed a shot past the keeper, as HBU won its first Southland Conference game of the season, 1-0 in overtime past Abilene Christian. HBU (2-5-1 overall, 1-0-0 SLC) has now evened the all-time series, 1-1-0, with the home team winning the game by a score of 1-0. HBU outshot ACU, 20-9, in the match, including 5-1 in the overtime session. Allison Abendschein had a match-high six shots, with half of them hitting the target. Connor Ryder had four shots, two on goal. Patty Walrath…
  • Two Second Half Goals by GW Enough to Get Past Hornets Sunday Afternoon

    21 Sep 2014 | 7:06 pm
    (Dover, Del.) – After holding the visiting George Washington Colonials (6-2) scoreless in the first stanza, the Delaware State women’s soccer team (2-7) allowed two unassisted goals in the second period to fall 2-0 Sunday afternoon in the first of a season-long three-game homestand. Breaking the tie was GW’s Brooke Stoller (1) during the 57th minute, when she sent what looked like a pass from the right wing deep in DSU territory. Nevertheless, the ball landed in the left corner of the net just out of the reach of goalkeeper Katelyn Koslosky.  A little over 20 minutes later,…

    Last season, the Detroit Red Wings had a very up and down season.

  • Silas Redd: Washington Redskins Mr. Irony

    Lake Lewis Jr
    18 Sep 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Ashburn, Va. – For Washington Redskins’ running back Silas Redd, the past two years have been ones filled with subplots and ironies. Redd was once the future star-in-waiting at Penn State University. Blair Thomas, who is considered by many as the greatest back in the history of Penn State Football (former Redskins running back Evan Royster is the school’s all-time leading rusher) said that: “Silas was going to be the best back ever to come out of  Happy Valley had he not transferred to Southern California.” But the young man ended up transferring to the University of…

    Redskins RB Alfred Morris needs to have a good game versus the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Ashburn, Va. – Until the Washington Redskins can return the whupping they received at the hands of NFC-East-Division-rival Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, any game against this team is going to be must-win. In the first Monday Night Football game of the 2013 season, the Eagles surprised the NFL world with then-brand-new head coach Chip Kelly’s high-octane offense when they came to town and beat Washington 33-27 (the score was not indicative of how badly they beat the Redskins). The second time…
  • Penn State: Report Card vs. Rutgers

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
      By Quintus McDonald Last week’s report card on the Nittany Lions’ game versus the Akron Zips was consistency. This week it became evident early in the first quarter that Rutgers University was determined to make a statement to not only Penn State, but to the Big Ten Conference and college football as a whole. But PSU made a statement themselves when they beat the Scarlet Knights 13-10 and that is that they are resilient. Both teams were very well prepared. Going into the game, it was obvious that the difference maker could easily be the athletic defensive front of…
  • Despite Injuries, Redskins Put on Show vs. Jaguars

    Lake Lewis Jr
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:04 pm
    The beautiful blue skies that welcomed in the Washington Redskins’ home opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars would be a prelude for a day that saw every human emotion possible. Optimism would start the day as Redskins starting quarterback Robert Griffin, III would quickly make his mark by running to the right for a 12-yard gain from the shotgun formation.  The resulting play showed that he could still beat teams with his elusive rushing abilities. Two plays later Griffin would find wide out DeSean Jackson on a nicely thrown deep ball, showing that he could beat teams with his arm…
  • PSU vs. Rutgers: Rivalry or Border War?

    15 Sep 2014 | 6:02 am
    By Quintus McDonald The opening Big Ten Conference game between Penn State and Rutgers Universities this past Saturday marked the beginning of a rivalry. That game — which Penn State won 13-10 — was a more natural fit than the Penn State vs. Ohio State rivalry that has been in existence since PSU’s entry into the Big Ten. The fact of the matter is that routinely, Rutgers has been on the schedule as a home game for Penn State… typically late in the season. Many things could be suggested about the meeting of the two teams, one of which is that the New Jersey college…

Buckeyes are also still considered one of the contenders for the top spot in the game despite their loss to Virginia Tech last week. The Kent state Golden Flashes on the other had, have had a pretty good run in the past but don’t play the level of competition or recruit the level of player that the Buckeyes do.

    Brutus in Austin, TX before a football game against the Texas Longhorns (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The Go Buckeyes commercial still cracks me up. Remember the one where this couple is introducing themselves (the woman is driving) to each other. It becomes apparent that they are actually on a blind date and the guy jumps out of the car because the woman, while introducing herself, chants the rival college football team's slogan. Not only does he jump out of a moving car he yells back GO BUCKEYES loud enough. Come to think of it why would someone go through such extremes for football. Well, if…

    High School Illustrated
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

    19 Sep 2014 | 12:30 pm
    It was another crazy week in the NFL with more off-the field issues. There are great story lines on the field, but the discussion continues to surround much bigger issues. The one word I want to bring up today is blame. Unfortunately, blame creeps into many conversations: from athletes in trouble…to the NFL…to owners…to coaches…to fans. You and I also do our fair share of placing blame on others. We blame our parents, our circumstances, the government, our boss, the waiter, the person driving in front of us…and sadly we even blame God. The blame game actually started with Adam…

    Wild on SportsNFL Cash-In:Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo BillsLine: Pick'em, O/U: 43Overview: For the first time in years we can look at the AFC East standings and see a team other than the New England Patriots in first place. In fact, the Patriots are the only team in the division sitting there at 0-1. In perhaps the biggest surprise in week one the Miami Dolphins dominated the perennial division champs in the second half en route to a 33-20 victory. If that victory was not the upset of the week, than the distinction should belong to the Buffalo Bills who stunned many with a 23-20 overtime…

In 2013 they still only win 74 games but things are more promising; they might have won 4-5 if not for month-long injuries to their trio of offensive stars: Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The pitching looks much less terrible, as Joulys Chacin and Jorge de la Rosa lead a rebound performance. Still, the team has plenty of holes.Winter…

    Short and sweet. Here are 11 phrases successful athletes never say one game day (and probably not on any other day either)… Successful athletes don’t look for something to blame. They look and their performance, think about how they can do better next time, and work on it.  They don’t stay focused on the “coulda, woulda, shouldas.” No matter what, they want to do their best and help their team in any way they can, no matter what that may entail, no matter who is “supposed” to do it or not. Successful athletes LOVE a challenge and WANT the ball. They…

Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices. The bottom line is, YOUR choices affect opportunities you receive and ones you get taken away from you. Don’t blame the tool. This very same tool can HELP you…

I let her know I was happy she out works and out trains a lot of her teammates, BUT… I encouraged her to not get complacent with that, to aim higher. After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

She played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

  • 2014 NFL Betting Against the Public Report

    David Solar
    20 Sep 2014 | 2:30 pm
    Before every season, the team at Sports Insights publishes a series of Betting Against the Public articles which highlights the sweet spots for contrarian betting. The ideal range differs from sport to sport, however, for NFL betting we have frequently discussed the 80/20 rule which encourages bettors to take the most lopsided bet games on the schedule. This contrarian philosophy has been a key component of our Best Bets strategy. Since the start of the 2009-10 NFL season, our Best Bets have gone 234-196 (54.4%) for +20.5 units won. That means by simply following these bets a $100/game…
  • NFL Betting Against the Public: Buying Low on Playoff Teams

    David Solar
    20 Sep 2014 | 2:10 pm
    At Sports Insights we constantly preach two major adages: 1) Whichever team the public is loading up on, simply bet the other team. 2) Make sure to buy on bad news and sell on good These two contrarian philosophies may seem simple, but they are extremely valuable for exploiting public perception. The public tends to be very reactionary and, with the ever-growing popularity of football, sharp bettors can take advantage of these squares. In the past we’ve discussed our 80/20 NFL betting system which focuses on underdogs receiving less than 20% of spread bets. This basic system has…

  • Betting Late Season MLB Overs at Coors Field

    David Solar
    20 Sep 2014 | 7:20 am
    For years Coors Field in Colorado has been notorious for being a hitter-friendly ballpark. These days it’s a rarity that we see the Colorado Rockies play a home game in which the total is less than 10 — an extreme anomaly considering that totals across baseball have been dropping. The main reason behind these high-scoring games and large totals is the thin air in the mile-high city. Higher altitudes lead to lower air density which has tremendous impact on both batted balls and pitched balls. Due to the reduced drag, balls travel significantly farther at Coors Field. In fact,…

Perhaps that’s what has allowed the NHL season to creep up with the stealth and silence of a serial killer in a horror movie. Although it seems as though the NHL season ended quite recently, pre-season action actually begins this Sunday (9/21) with the regular season opening play on October 8th.

    I was not lucky with getting this upgrade. The very next day after I ordered it, Clever Training reduced the Fenix 2 price by $100. It was stopped for customs clearance and I needed to pay duty on it (first time!) and had to chase post office to give me informations about the state of delivery multiple times. Few days before North Shore Marathon it arrived. And it was worth waiting for!

    15 Sep 2014 | 6:56 pm “Time is not a coach’s friend.” These words from former NFL and NCAA coach Charles Coiner capture the dilemma faced by many football coaches every day. For most coaches, the biggest challenge is coming up with good strategic plays that will work year after year, while still finding time to actually train and develop players under their charge. This is a problem faced by both pros and amateur coaches, but more so by those who work as part-time coaches in the high school, small-college, and youth-league ranks. How it all began Back in 2011 when Coiner was taking a…

Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, a former football player for the University of Maryland, worked in his grandmother’s basement in Washington, D.C. and traveled up and down the country selling his revolutionary new product out of the trunk of his car. Now almost two decades later and seemingly out of nowhere, Under Armour has managed to break into the top ranks of the sports apparel industry. Its sales have steadily increased, totaling $2.33 billion last year. How did it…

    Being the most popular sport in the entire world, it’s probably impossible for football not to have any sort of artistic offshoot. Freestyle football is certainly such. Since its emergence in the early 1900s, it has developed into an elaborate art through which people are able to express themselves. From a simple game where one performs various tricks with a football using different parts of the body, it has become a widespread sport and is currently being practiced by thousands of trained professionals the world over.

    21 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    There is no secret that Syracuse football head coach Scott Shafer wants the Orange to be a hard-nosed football team.  Just do a search for Shafer and hard-nosed—see what you get.  But after 3 games… does it really appear that this Syracuse football team is hard-nosed?  Unfortunately, one can make a strong argument that it is not.  And that starts at the top. The Confidential is a huge fan of Scott Shafer.  That being said, do you get the feeling that this Syracuse staff out-coaches its opponents?  The Confidential does not.

    Yesterday, I noted that Jameis Winston needed guidance.  Today, Winston was punished.  He will sit out the first half of the Clemson game.  If that is all we get out of this, it will be disappointing.  Indeed, I disagree with this approach, both as it relates to Winston and as it relates to everyone else. First, Winston deserves a punishment.  That is not a debate.  But we always do the easy thing in society.  If something is broken, throw money  at the problem (see Government).  If someone breaks the law, throw them in jail.  If someone violates social norms, ban them from his or…

    The North Carolina football team may have had last week off, but they certainly didn’t have any time to rest. After two underwhelming victories against motivated, but overmatched opponents, the Tar Heels had a lot of work to do. Despite being 2-0, the season was already heading in the wrong direction without significant changes in a number of different areas. Poor tackling and a stagnant running game were two of the biggest problems, but that’s only scratching the surface. This week it’s back to business, and things are about to heat up pretty quickly.

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

  • An attempt to explain the unfathomable Joe Nathan 9th-inning experience

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:29 am — nick pants (@nick_pants) September 17, 2014 Joe Nathan was good. Then he moved 1,200 miles away and he wasn’t. First the blown saves came as an aberration, then they arrived as a symptom of a dead arm. Eventually they arrived simply because they had before. At its most basic, baseball is a child monitoring device. Nine players stand in the field, in easy view. Parents have a finite number of kids to watch at one time. The rest are safe in what most of the time is a chain-link cage. The plus is crowd control. The minus is downtime for the kids. When…

    He was a two-star recruit. He went to a faraway land and molded himself into a fourth-round draft pick. When he came to training camp he was still mystery for Lions coaches to solve when they had more time. In the meantime he could cover kicks. Then Detroit cut the only reliable player it had in the secondary. Free agent signing James Ihedigbo injured his neck. Perennial backup Don Carey hurt his hamstring.  Bill Bentley’s knee exploded after three plays. The Lions had no replacements to plug in or safeties to slide over. Nevin Lawson had to grab his helmet, run out to the field…

    THE GAME TURNED WHEN… Eagles KR Chris Polk caught a Tress Way kickoff two yards deep in his own end zone and raced up the middle of the field untouched to the end zone. It was a 102-yard kickoff return that tied the game at seven and undid so much of the good work done by the Washington offense. Yes, this play was in the first quarter, so how did the game turn then? Because teams that allow 102-yard kickoff returns don’t win football games — and they don’t deserve to win football games. THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN… The Skins got the ball on the Philadelphia 41-yard…

Oklahoma came knocking against Alabama in the 2014 Sugar Bowl. After a 45-31 loss, the Crimson Tide returns to the…

    New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford announced on Saturday the launch of his new philanthropic organization, The Steve Weatherford World Champion Foundation at Momentum Cycling and Fitness Studio in Momentum, NJ. He pulled up to Momentum with a group of very excited fans awaiting his arrival. He got out of the car and immediately went up and gave high fives all around. Then he asked the kids if they always did their homework, to which they all unanimously screamed “Yes!” He asks, ok so who can tell me what 11×4 is? A little boy yells 44! Weatherford high fives him and…

    15 Sep 2014 | 4:13 pm
    Each football season, there’s the risk that goes through each football player’s mind: the risk of an injury that could prevent playing time. For New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford, this risk recently became very real. Weatherford tore four ligaments in his ankle, an injury that is detrimental to his position.  Dr. Tehrany, of Manhattan Orthopedic Care, used his expertise to comment on Weatherford’s injury: “Weatherford’s injury seems mild based on the way he injured the ankle. Unfortunately, the MRI scan is not 100% accurate in cases of torn ligaments. The initial…

    Seems the skies are starting to clear around MSG for the New York Knicks. Newly appointed head of basketball operations Phil Jackson has already made major changes to the Knicks organization that left much to be desired last year. Coaching Change: Mike Woodson was the first change that needed to happen to change the culture in the Knicks locker room. Once Woodson was fired, Phil Jackson turned to Derek Fisher to coach the Knicks with a knowledge of Jackson’s “triangle offense” and years playing for Jackson when he was coach in LA – it will make sure there is no…

  • 11 Ways to Reduce Salt in Your Diet

    17 Sep 2014 | 11:36 am
    Photo by  Kiersten Koenig by Otesa Miles Sodium, which is necessary for the body, can cause great harm when consumed in excess. Found in table salt, foods, drinks and even medicines and supplements, too much sodium is a key factor in high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to kidney disease, heart disease and stroke. To decrease salt intake, here are a few tips: Reduce or, if possible, eliminate pre packaged foods. Microwave meals and convenient lunch boxes contain large amounts of sodium. Cut out cans. Canned foods usually are chock full of sodium, which adds flavor and acts as a…
  • Too Much Salt is a Health Violation

    10 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Photo by Kiersten Koenig By Otesa Miles Keeping young bodies basketball ready involves tons of physical activity, plus lots of healthy foods. Unfortunately, a 2012 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that many children and teens consume too much salt or sodium which increases their risk of having high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a range of heart diseases. Young people should consume no more than 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. In fact, less is better. Many people think excess salt comes from the salt shaker. However, the main culprit is prepared and…

    The simple, unpretentious sling is something that a soldier can barely manage to ignore. In the mass of essentials, the sling of a technologically advanced firearm like the Nightforce Beast Scope may appear to be insignificant. The prepper, who has to be always alert for an extended period of time and protect himself and the surroundings, only understands how important it is to carry the rifle in an utmost comfortable position. The man needs to build his tent, light up a fire and check on the available resources while wearing his blaster, perhaps a Nightforce Beast 5.5-22×56 MOAR. It is…

    The Giants season is on the brink of disaster this Sunday, as they host the Houston Texans. Tom Coughlin’s bunch can not afford another 0-3 start to the season.   The Texans defense is a formidable group that can put pressure on the quarterback, led by the recent Powerball winner All-Pro J.J.

If the Giants offensive line can keep Eli clean Manning can make plays in the passing game. The Giants defense have been stout against the run, and…

At this time last year, the Jets found themselves debating on who should start: current QB at the time Mark Sanchez or the more athletic and raw Geno Smith. The decision was basically made once Sanchez went down in the last preseason game against the Giants, making him miss the entire year. This Summer Geno was in Sanchez’s seat but…

Swansea City, though, is a football Cinderella.Swansea City was founded in 1912 as Swansea Town. It hovered in the middling leagues of the English sport for much of the century. But in the 1960s, the team tumbled down the ranks, eventually requiring a financial rescue package and High Court approval just to survive. In 2001, it was sold — for a…

    The Seattle Seahawks rarely have a hard time stopping any opposing offensive player. During last year’s playoffs alone, over the course of three successive games they shut down New Orleans’ star tight end Jimmy Graham, short-circuited San Francisco’s entire passing game, and humiliated Denver’s Peyton Manning (arguably the best quarterback ever). But on Sunday, the “Legion of Boom” had no answers for San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, who caught three touchdown passes in an upset victory over the defending Super Bowl champs.Seattle shouldn’t feel too bad, though.

  • Has Expanded Replay Worked Well In Baseball? Here’s Our Call

    Oliver Roeder
    12 Sep 2014 | 9:59 am
    Early this year, Major League Baseball introduced dramatically expanded instant replay rules. With a few exceptions — notably, balls and strikes — managers can challenge any umpire’s call on the field.“This is really big,” Commissioner Bud Selig said at the time.Selig and other MLB officials made positive predictions about the benefits of expanded replay, promising it wouldn’t “disturb the game.” Also, managers would have power over calls, and bad calls would be made right. Finally, officials suggested an increased strategic component to the game: As with calling in a…

    The Dirtiest Picks on the Internet

    20 Sep 2014 | 8:40 pm
    DIRTY NFL PICKS!!! LOCKS!SD (+1) vs. BuffaloBuffalo is not a good enough team to go 3-0 in the first three games. Their defense has played lights out in the first three games, and they have been able to hide EJ Manuel and make him more of a game manager than an actual competent QB. Well, that kind of system runs out of steam eventually, and San Diego is playing as hot as anyone in the league. Look for the Chargers to go up 21-0 early in this game, only to face a late comeback by the Buff’s that falls short as Manuel throws a back breaking pick sometime late in the fourth quarter.NO…

    FRIDAY NIGHT AL CENTRAL SUPERSLAM UPSET PICK Detroit Tigers (+104) @ Kansas City Royals Miguel Cabrera may be a lot of things but he ain't no god damn loser.  The Tigers have 10 games left in their season and they sit .5 games ahead of Kansas City in the AL Central Division. Why do teams pay super stars the big dollars? To win the big games. Miguel Cabrera is arguably the greatest hitter of all time. Yeah sure, the washed up has been of a pitcher we know as Verlander is on the mound tonight; but that doesn't change the fact that Miggy is teeing off in KC. In Minnesota, Detroit…

    Thursday Night FootballTampa Bay (+6) at Atlanta (UNDER 46)The Buccaneers, by all accounts, should get blown out tonight. No Gerald McCoy and no Mason Foster makes an already shaky Bucs defense look like a prime candidate for a Matty IceNutz 5 TD game! Let's remember, this is a Thursday night game. I almost liken these games to Thursday night at the local club or bar. Yeah the environment and excitement is the same, but you're not 100% into it, hell, you may still be recovering from the previous weekend! So what do you end up with when you have a Thursday game/night out? Some sloppy play and…

It is the relatively unheard of Billy Horschel, who just walked away from the Tour Championship with $11.5 million. Not only $11.5 million, but the winner of the FedEx Cup, last week’s BMW Championship, and a newfound name. On his personal website, he states placing 2nd at the Stadion Classic on the Tour was his most memorable moment in his golfing career.1 Oh, how things have changed.

    Over the last decade, the NFL has gone from a league centered around the run game to one that revolves around airing it out. With that change of pace to the sport, the wide receiver position has become the prime position. The guys that we have seen playing there over the years have been the most athletic guys on the field, making electric plays. Guys like Calvin Johnson, Dez Bryant and AJ Green have revolutionized the game. With the pass game becoming so popular, teams have used the short and intermediate pass game to set up the long throws. This system has also given the more diminutive…

    It is more likely that a team in the NFL will go from worst to first and vice versa in the span of one season than any other major sport. But even with such parity, the early results of the 2014 regular season are shocking. Among the most surprising developments is the early fall of the New Orleans Saints, who beat the Eagles in the playoffs last year to make it to the divisional round, and the sole lead of the AFC East by the Buffalo Bills, who finished in last place in their division last season. What changed in the seventh months of the offseason that would result in such a turnaround? And…

After all, every time I watch the Padres play, I can’t help but think about how my dog could use a new chew toy. The guilt is inescapable watching the Brewers while sipping on an Old Style.

Domestic violence is the big issue right now (as I’m sure all of you are far too aware of). Plenty has been written on that subject, so I’ll refrain from delving too much into that situation, but what we do now know is that the league is hiring four female advisors to attempt to change outside perception of how it handles situations and hopefully do some good internally as well.

Take for example when Ted Nolan was coach of the New York Islanders and he asked the team owner to bring back Al Arbour to coach one more game because statistically Coach Arbour was at 1499 games. It was set up for Al Arbour to come back behind the bench with Coach Nolan. Arbour was to be honored for helping architect four in a row Stanley Cup winning Islander teams and to reach the 1500 games coached plateau.No, the Sabres have not won any cups. They came close twice, but both those teams did not quite have enough to make it over the top. In the…

Kurz, was sent out to the media this week.  The press release stated that a press conference will be held on Monday, September 15, 2014.  The purpose of the press conference is to inform the media and the public that the Arena Football League still exists and are playing games.  Kurz hopes to show the media that the Arena Football League is a serious football league and deserves some media coverage.

  • Houston Astros to give away opposing teams jerseys, in an attempt to increase attendance

    19 Sep 2014 | 7:55 am
    The Houston Astros are getting ready to roll out a new marketing plan for the rest of the 2014 season and possibly into the 2015 season.  In an attempt to increase game attendance the team will start giving away T-shirts and jerseys of the opposing teams players, instead of Houston Astro’s merchandise. A spokesman for the Astros had this to say about the new marketing plan, “It’s not that there are no longer Houston Astro fans, its just the fans don’t know any of the players on the current roster.  If we can offer Derek Jeter T-shirts and get more fans to come out to the games,…

  • Report: Cousins admits to injuring RGIII

    17 Sep 2014 | 8:06 am
    Breaking news into the UPFL that Kirk Cousins has admitted to purposefully injuring RGIII and wishing for a season ending injury. An official statement from Cousins reps says: “ Kirk was fed up of benchwarming for a QB that is far less talented than him. Friday night, my client snuck onto FedEX Field and dug pot holes all over the field, hoping RGIII would trip in one. My client was overjoyed when he saw RGIII dislocate his ankle and be sidelined for several weeks.” While this might not have been the best way to go about this, it’s hard to argue with the results. The Redskins went from…

    United States 129, Serbia(?) 92 During the past few weeks, the United States has apparently been facing off against the best of the rest of the world during something called the FIBA Basketball World Cup. This tournament, according to Google, happens every four years, two years between the Summer Olympics. Google further explained that this is the second time in a row we’ve won this competition, which is pretty cool. In what the highlights suggested was a dominating effort on both offense and defense, the United States finished a tournament sweep while winning every game by more than 20…

Earlier today details were few and far between, with some sources even stating that Dwyer was only questioned not arrested.

    Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena may seem like a strange venue for a collosal ice hockey grudge match. And it was fairly safe to say that no-one in the crowd was expecting Gretzky, Federov or Lemieux to be turning out either. In fact a Kane, Quick or Boychuck would have sufficed; instead we got to experience the talents of Zenon Konopka, Emerson Etem, Tyler Bunz and Andrew Gordon (a late replacement for the world renown Kyle Quincey). When I heard the line-ups for the two teams those immortal lines from Major League were ringing through my ears – “Not bad for a couple of…

  • Danny Welbeck vs Radamel Falcao

    Ismail N
    12 Sep 2014 | 1:11 am
    By selling Danny Welbeck to direct rival, Arsenal, Louis Van Gaal has certainly put his reputation on the line. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wengner seem to think that the England striker is a quality player. Sir Alex even choose Welbeck ahead of Wayne Rooney during their Champion League match against Real Madrid a couple of years ago. Van Gaal however, has a different opinion about Welbeck. The Dutchman decided that Welbeck is not good enough for United and happy to let him go for just £16 million. Many fans don’t think it a wise idea. Just £16 million to a direct rival?

    So the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) has finally pushed the panic button and decided to replace ‘under fire‘ head coach, K. Dharmaraj with Project 2016 coach, A. Arulselvaraj, albeit the appointment is just an interim measure. The face-saving move with Dharmaraj as a “scapegoat” to me is an act of cowardice, designed to appease the fans after a disastrous World Cup campaign and shameful performances at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It would have been better for the MHC to stick by their man for at least another year after they decided to give…
