    Brian MacLellan's first NHL trade deadline at the helm in Washington has come and gone, and as was the case during free agency, the first-year general manager made a splash.  While he didn't land a star by any means, MacLellan did manage to get one of the better two-way wingers on the market in Curtis Glencross, as well as a more imposing defensive partner for Mike Green in Tim Gleason.  It cost him a combined haul of Washington's second, third and fourth picks in 2015 and veteran rearguard Jack Hillen, but MacLellan clearly believes his club is capable of doing damage in the…

    I purposely budgeted my time yesterday to be in front of the TV at 5:00PM EST to watch Keith Olbermann’s return to the air after his 4-day suspension from ESPN. I was curious to see how he would “handle” the cause for his suspension and – truth be told – there was a part of me that wondered if watching the first day back might be the same as watching a self-immolation. As everyone here knows by now, I am not a fan of Keith Olbermann’s politics and more specifically I am not a fan of his views on Penn State University which caused the suspension, but I do believe that he is an…

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

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

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

But you’ve also called Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones a terrible boss, a terrible general manager, meddling, in-over-his head, stupid, and destined never to achieve success. A tenure of .500 teams during his tenure as the head man after he sent Jimmy Johnson packing in a fit of pique didn’t lend itself to all of that name-calling, maybe…but did lend itself to most of it.

I mean it. Our teams are dumb. All college basketball teams are dumb. Kentucky is 30-0 and will still likely lose in the Elite 8 because someone got called for an over-and-back in the final 15 seconds. College basketball itself is currently being dumb. The games take three days and every in-bounds pass requires a review that lasts longer than the Warren Commission. Good teams play badly. Bad teams lose…

Some of these cities would be fine choices, and some of these cities are Indianapolis. This system, however, is hopelessly outdated. Our urban areas change so rapidly now that it's difficult to say what New Orleans or Miami or Charlotte will look like in five years. Would they still be ideal choices for this event?

    Via @davebirkett Billboards paid by fans to convince a team’s front office to do anything are always pointless and ineffective. I maintain the right to appreciate them when they happens champion a cause I support, like getting the Buccaneers to fire Greg Schiano, but that doesn’t still mean that the fan billboards aren’t a waste of money. That said, at least most of them have a coherent message, unlike this Ndamukong Suh billboard that has sprung up IN MULTIPLE PLACES outside Detroit. What the hell does that even mean? Is the dollar sign meant to shame Suh for wanting money?

Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado Rockies Troy Tulowitzki hit .340 in 2014 with 71 runs, 21 home runs, 52 RBI and a stolen base in just 91 games. Extrapolate that out to a 162-game season and you’re looking at a .340-126-37-93-2 line. Staying healthy has been an issue as Tulo has missed 281 games over the past five seasons. When he’s healthy he’s a five-category stud. 2. Ian Desmond, Washington Nationals Ian Desmond hit .255 in 2014 with 73 runs, 24 home runs, 91 RBI and 24 stolen bases. Over the past…

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

I have yet to see anything like this, despite living in Orange County my entire life and it is quite a view. The snow/hail did melt off by the mid afternoon, but for those who got to see it in person it was rather memorable. Anyone want to go surfing?

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

His best statistical season came as a junior when he achieved career highs in minutes (23/40), rebounds (5.8) and points (7.8). Those modest peaks have deteriorated in his final year. When will Amir finally get it? That's been the question for four years. It was asked as recently as this week, which will conclude with his final home game as a Buckeye.

    Phil Jackson, the Zen Master, is a man who is known to choose his words wisely. Which is why his comments to cleveland.com about D'Angelo Russell — he called Silk "a great looking kid," and "a great prospect" after last Thursday's win over Nebraska — were somewhat surprising since they were a flagrant violation of NBA rules. And if Jackson, now siphoning millions from the New York Knicks as their acting president, didn't know that then, he does now; he has been fined an unspecified amount by the league office. Jackson is no stranger to this kind of fine, either. The NBA took $25,000…

    4 Mar 2015 | 2:45 am
    Hello and welcome to another Wednesday of deep thoughts. Okay, I get it…those couple of nice weeks we had in February was just Mother Nature’s practical joke. I know that I won’t get any sympathy from my friends up north…but damn our weather has sucked. I may have to go looking for that damn armadillo that predicted an “early” spring and give it a swift kick. This is how we do snow in Texas:  The snow in north Texas had Ranger and Murray State scrambling for a new venue to play their scheduled baseball games…and San Antonio turned out to be the selected solution. Last Thursday,…
  • Buzz from the Bleachers

    4 Mar 2015 | 2:17 am
    Welcome to Wednesday, Gabbers. The cold is coming back. I’m looking out at rain as I write and really hope it won’t be ice by morning. We’re expected to get colder temps and more snow. That isn’t bothering too much right now, as I have two distractions. I got a chance to stop by the library here in Coraopolis. I hadn’t had the time or opportunity to check in yet. I found some good stuff. I got myself a book on the Pirates to get up to speed on the history of the franchise. I figure the Pirates are not a bad team to be my National League team. They have a great history and some…

    This weeks column is dedicated to the enduring memory of my grandmother Lorene Hare (1925-1993) who was the foundation of Hoodwood before anyone really knew what it was or what it could be… The countdown to selection Sunday is on 12 days…this is most intense time of the year. People always go crazy about the tourney, but it’s the mad scramble to get a dance invite in which I find the most fascinating. The games are more intense and the stakes are never higher. The mid-majors and smaller conferences are ramping up for their respective conference tourneys where in many conferences only…

  • Purpose does not make you happy

    Erica Quam
    3 Mar 2015 | 7:18 am
    written by Erica Quam I left collegiate coaching when I felt I was no longer living “my purpose.” Afterwards, I went through a stretch of time where I was on a daily quest to find my “next purpose.”  I wanted it to be clearly defined. All wrapped up in a neat little package. With a bow. What I’ve realized is that your purpose can change, grow, & evolve. Your purpose doesn’t make you happy or successful. YOU make yourself happy and successful. Instead of searching for this elusive purpose, get clear on things you are good at. What brings you joy?

    Tweet Today’s post is courtesy of the W.P. Carey School of Business ‘Research and Ideas’ newsletter from February 19, 2015.   W. P. Carey researchers say the Phoenix area benefits greatly — both economically and otherwise — from its portfolio of major sporting events. Not all cities can say the same. The United States Olympics Committee surprised sports-watchers nationwide in January, when it announced that it had selected Boston — rather than the favored cities of Los Angeles or San Francisco — as its bid city for the XXXIII 2024 Summer Olympic Games.

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

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

    Tiger Woods has confirmed that he will not play next weeks’ Honda Classic after he announced an indefinite leave from the PGA Tour. Woods said last week he would leave the tour indefinitely because his game was not acceptable for tournament golf and that he would not play again until he felt like, reported Xinhua. Woods has played only two tournaments this year. He shot the worst round of his professional career in January, an 11-over-par 82 in the second round of the Phoenix Open. The following week at Torrey Pines, he withdrew after 11 holes because of tightness in his back. Woods is No.

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

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

    When Andre Johnson is likely released by the Houston Texans, the Baltimore Ravens should immediately show interest in the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. It's just a matter of whether the feeling would be mutual. Johnson makes sense for the Ravens because of their need at wide receiver if Torrey Smith can't be re-signed and their successful history with aging receivers from Derrick Mason to Anquan Boldin to Steve Smith Sr. He would represent the first step in the Ravens' offseason makeover o

    K. Michelle is fabulous on her birthday and every other day, which is why she’s our #WCW.   Please remember that there’s levels to this ish–yes, there’s criteria–so no, we don’t just give this award to any and everybody. First things first, the woman must be independent and in control of her career. Next, she must keep it cute at all times, and if someone happens to ruffle her feathers, she can easily flip her hair back in place. Lastly, she must be transparent and real because true beauty is held within, while of course, still serving from head to toe.
  • (Op-Ed) What Can We Learn From Authors W.E.B. Du Bois and Eckhart Tolle?

    Two authors, two very different backgrounds, two timeless truths intertwined for one universal message of oneness. Throughout history, we have been able to study some of the greatest minds of various time periods, and by virtue of doing so, we ultimately realize that though these minds may be of different races and kinds, they have had insight to offer coming generations.  Though they were from two different races, in two time periods, both W.E.B. Du Bois and Eckhart Tolle have ultimately provided timeless observation, and quite possibly, universal truths, in their writings. To begin,…

  • Trade Victorino? Not So Fast.

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

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

    (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images) Of the five-plus men who should compete for the number one job in the Red Sox rotation, righty Wade Miley, obtained from Arizona in December, is the most intriguing. Only 28 years old, he has shown success at every level of competition, from Rookie Leagues to the majors. Just two years ago, he was considered one of the top hurlers in baseball. A Louisiana native, Miley played college baseball at Southeast Louisiana University. Signed in the first round by the Diamondbacks in 08, he moved up rapidly in the minor league system.

    When the idea of contending in 2014 was put to rest, the Boston Red Sox reloaded for 2015, saying goodbye to a few familiar faces. Pending free agents Jon Lester, Jake Peavy and John Lackey were all traded during the season to clear up space for the moves that would most heavily impact 2015. The Red Sox brought in the top two offensive free agents, Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, while restocking their rotation with Justin Masterson, Wade Miley and Rick Porcello. The new additions mixed in with fan favorites Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli, have the Boston faithful geared up…

    7 Feb 2015 | 6:22 pm
    (Photo by Brian Blanco/Getty Images) The Red Sox catching situation was stable in 2013 Jarrod Saltalamacchia, a regular since 2011, had a career-best .273 average with 14 homers and 65 rbi’s. He had 40 doubles, only the 13th catcher ever to accomplish the feat. Saltalamacchia was backed up by David Ross, a capable sub and favorite of Jon Lester. But in a move that baffled many fans, the team did not tender a free-agent offer to Salty.He ended up signing for three years with Miami. Ben Cherington apparently thought that young Christian Vasquez was almost ready, but as a…

    Right now, the Golden State Warriors are the best team in a loaded Western Conference. They’re looking for their 1st NBA championship since 1975, and the game has certainly changed in the last 40 years. Even since the 1990s when the Chicago Bulls dominated with Michael Jordan, the game is much more perimeter oriented. In a way, Golden State is the standard barer for this new style of play.   The three-point shot was ushered into the NBA in the 1970s, but it really has only taken off in the last 20 years or so. These days, it seems like every team is loaded with players who can shoot…

    The Runnin’ Utes only have two more regular season games. At the moment  the Utes find themselves ranked 13th, with a pretty solid spot in the tournament, and 2nd place in the PAC-12 in their sights. But, as we have followed the path of this season it has me wondering, where does the road lead to? Or in other words: Where can Coach Krystkowiak take this team? This year it will be the Sweet Sixteen. Beyond that, let me hypothesize.  As every Utah fan that has watched the Runnin’ Utes knows, Coach Krystkowiak has resurrected this program. Look at the exponential…

I don’t expect Booker to participate much in spring ball, if at all, due to the fact that he is a proven commodity and the Utes don’t need to risk any unnecessary injury to him. Therefore I want to focus on who will be battling it out during spring ball to earn playing time behind Booker come fall. Bubba Poole: In my opinion Bubba is important to this team. He has plenty of experience, he’s a nice change of pace compliment to Booker and I LOVE when the…

  • Press Man Trail Technique for the Defensive Back

    Steve
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:12 pm
    Once you have established a good stance and inside alignment, with focus on the inside number and the cross hand jam, you are ready to move into teaching your defensive back how to play the football. Press Man Trail Technique for the Defensive Back Defensive back players should be hip to hip going into the transition, focusing on the inside number – not on the head or the feet. The offensive player will release on the outside, and the defensive back will work through the transition into a trail position, with focus on putting a body lean onto the receiver to press him to the sideline. …
  • “Out of Phase” Defensive Back Drill

    Steve
    13 Feb 2015 | 8:53 am
    So, maybe you’ve done a good jam, but the receiver gets a great release and is able to get open on you and create some space. It doesn’t do you any good to look back and find the ball if you aren’t close enough to the receiver to make a play on it.  This is when the “Out of Phase” defensive back drill comes in handy! “Out of Phase” Defensive Back Drill When you are “out of phase” – in other words when you are in trouble and know you are beat – you want to focus on the V of the neck of the receiver and burst full speed ahead, trying to get…

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

Double Team (at the point of attack) Offensive Line Drill In this offensive line drill, you want to have two defenders and two blockers.  The two offensive players at the point of attack are going to focus on knocking one defensive player back.  And then at a certain point, one of the two players will come off of the linebacker… but not until we get movement back off of the football.

  • Peyton Manning's pay cut not as much as Broncos first asked for

    Frank Schwab
    4 Mar 2015 | 4:33 pm
    Even when Peyton Manning loses $4 million, he doesn't really lose. The reworked contract is done, and Manning made it official that he'll be back, telling the Denver Post's Mike Klis he's excited to return for another season with the Denver Broncos. Manning's base salary was reduced from $19 million to $15 million, but it's not that bad for Manning.  The Broncos asked for a "far more severe pay cutwhen negotiations started, Klis reported. The Broncos need cash for signing bonuses, not necessarily salary-cap relief, Klis said. The team and Manning settled on the $4 million cut. But that's not…
  • Report: Wilt Chamberlain may have fathered a child in 1964

    4 Mar 2015 | 4:00 pm
    That Wilt Chamberlain passed away in 1999 without ever marrying is understandable. Wilt’s ascension as a basketball star came just as the culture began a sexual revolution of sorts, and he enjoyed his status as a bachelor with spouse to answer to. That he passed in 1999 having never fathered a child is far less believable, especially in light of Chamberlain’s 1991 boast that he’d slept with 20,000 women between the ages of 15 and the publication of his book ‘A View From Above.’ [Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball That admission or boast…

Gerrard is set to leave Anfield when his contract expires at the end of the season and join Major League Soccer outfit Los Angeles Galaxy.

    The Buffalo Bills made a huge statement on Tuesday by trading for Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy. The Bills will send LB Kiko Alonso to the Eagles as he will reunite with former head coach Chip Kelly. While Bills fans were excited about McCoy coming to town, one player now will have doubts about if he will return next season. C.J. Spiller is a free agent right now, but he has stated that he wants to stay in Buffalo.

    When the Denver Nuggets first hired Brian Shaw, many believe that he would become a very good coach. But after winning just two games out of the last 21, Shaw was fired Tuesday afternoon. It was obvious that a change was needed but the final nail in the coffin for Shaw was when a report came out about how the team would scream “six weeks” when they break from their huddle. David West and other Indiana Pacers players were upset when they found out that their former coach had been fired. West was more vocal about Shaw’s firing then any other Pacers player.   David West…

Harbaugh has moved on and is going through his first spring as head coach of the Michigan Wolverines. I thought that the 49ers had moved on as well but it looks like they are still bitter with their former coach. Apparently the 49ers have a team museum and after the team parted ways with Harbaugh, the organization has removed his exhibit and memorabilia.   Niners museum has literally covered up the Harbaugh era. This was once a Harbaugh plaque.

  • How to Encourage Kids to “Own” the Team

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

    No one likes to lose. But everyone has to do it now and then, some more than others. Losing is simply part of life. Set the example by showing your kids how it’s done, and hopefully they will follow your lead. Thank the coaches and refs for their work. The game’s outcome doesn’t matter; the refs and coaches did their job and gave their best effort. Be gracious to the winner. If you know them, make a point to congratulate them. If you don’t, you can still go out of your way to shake a player’s or coach’s hand. Don’t go home and trash talk the opposing team. Or coaches, or refs,…

Are you in a hurry to help him improve his skills, perhaps more quickly than he wants to? Are you being sucked into sports specialization? In 1981, psychologist David Elkind wrote a book called The Hurried Child He argued that kids are being turned into adults far too quickly, and described the traumas of kids forced prematurely into grown-up activities and roles.

Entering  play today, three teams are within one-half game of second place, while six  fighting for two playoff spots are separated by two and a half games. With twenty-three games remaining, front runner Atlanta has a ten game lead, so it's highly unlikely that they'll be unseated from their perch atop the conference.

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

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

If your team goals, or individual ambitions don’t get your heart racing, blood pumping, butterflies circling, or voice crackling when you talk about them, you may need to go back to drawing board and create some new ones. Why? Because it’s easy to create safe and socially acceptable goals that get a polite pat on the back or an attaboy. Those…

  • 5 Mistakes New (and Old) Runners Make

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

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

I love it for a million reasons. However, I often times do find myself in a rut. Sometimes it is an emotional rut where I am just not motivated.

    4 Mar 2015 | 10:29 am
    The Michigan basketball team twice couldn’t make game-clinching plays in Tuesday’s eventual 82-78 double overtime loss to Northwestern. While the result was disheartening, and, in many ways, emblematic of the 2014-15 season, there were several positives and learning situations for the Wolverines. We take a look in Five Key Plays. 1) Aubrey Dawkins powers Michigan early Perhaps the most encouraging sign for the Wolverines was the reemergence of Aubrey Dawkins, who had recently struggled with his jumper. He had no such issues Tuesday, scoring 15 points on 5-for-5 shooting in the first half…

For a shorthanded Michigan team that has suffered through so many heartbreaking defeats already this season, this one might have been the worst. Despite playing 39 minutes of great basketball, the Wolverines failed again and again to close out the game.

The Wolverines looked like a team that might have started to turn the corner, if only just barely, until the news that Caris LeVert was out for the season was announced the next day. Michigan, which was 4-2 after that win, is just 3-7 in its last 10 games and hasn’t been the same since.

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

    (Photo: Tom Hagerty) The final candidate for the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending), Josh Zeid, is also the most controversial. Last week we eliminated Daniel Fields  after ESPN’s Keith Law named him one of the Tigers’ top propsects and a feature story from before spring training was discovered. Zeid had has own feature story written about him just before the start of spring training, yet he remains in the competition. It’s a gray area. The difference between Fields and Zeid is the former had another strike. He was labeled a prospect. The latter is…
  • Breaking down the Red Wings’ sixth segment: Niklas Kronwall’s finest hour

    Mike
    2 Mar 2015 | 11:43 am
    (Photo: Bridget Samuels) It took 61 games but the Red Wings are finally back to last-season form. Two shootout losses and two shutout losses pushed Detroit to a 5-3-2 record over the past 10 games, earning the team for 12 points. The Red Wingers garnered 12 points per segment consistently throughout all of last year and barely made the playoffs. This year they have a cushion, but this segment reminding us of last year’s injury-riddled season isn’t a good sign. Most of their splits were similar to last year: 2013-14 Avg Seg 1 Seg 2 Seg 3 Seg 4 Seg 5 Seg 6 GF 27.1 29 30 32 24 35 27…

    (Photo: Keith Allison)   If this was four years ago, Alex Wilson wouldn’t stand a chance of surviving in JMMA chase. For one, he wasn’t a member of the Tigers. But even if he was, he’d was too good to be considered. In 2011, Wilson, now 28, was ranked the No. 11 prospect in the Red Sox system by Baseball America. The publication said he had both the best fastball and best slider in the Red Sox system.

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

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

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

One of Long Island’s favorite sons is now a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. On his third year of eligibility, Biggio received enough votes to be just the second island native, after Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, to earn induction. Biggio, who spent his entire career playing for Houston, was a star in baseball and football at Kings Park. You can read any number of stories about Biggio and his career online, but here’s a boiled down…

A native of Cedarhurst, N.Y., Alzado used to lift weights in longtime Lawrence coach Rich Mollo’s garage while staring for the Golden Tornadoes. He eventually went onto Yankton College in South Dakota and was selected by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the NFL draft in 1971. His life is the subject of “A Football Life” profile on NFL Network. It aired for the first time in November. The documentary airs…

    This month’s beer label has been around even longer than last month’s Sierra Nevada Hoptimum label. Quite a bit longer actually. North Coast Brewing has been making Scrimshaw since they got started in 1988. From Wikipedia: Scrimshaw is the name given to scrollwork, engravings, and carvings done in bone or ivory. Typically it refers to the handiwork created by whalers made from the byproducts of harvesting marine mammals. It is most commonly made out of the bones and teeth of sperm whales, the baleen of other whales, and the tusks of walruses. It takes the form of elaborate…

    With NFL free agency kicking off on Tuesday, teams across the league are busy paring down their rosters in anticipation of potentially adding new talent.

For each player I will recommend a move, either HOLD [keep him] or FOLD [let him go]. We will begin with the offense and continue next with the defense.

    Adam Schefter has just tweeted out that LeSean McCoy has been traded to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso. McCoy had been rumored to be moved for some time now, although it was supposed happen in a trade to move up in the NFL draft for Marcus Mariota. Left in wake at running back for Philly is Darren Sproles and Chris Polk. Kiko Alonso has the Oregon connection to Philly head coach Chip Kelly – and a big off season focus for Philly is improving the defense. Buffalo has continued to make big moves this off season and it’ll be interesting to see how this will turn out.

General Manager Theo Epstein has done a great job of being patient with the young talent and bringing in proven talent to supplant it. Keeping this in mind, the Cubs are my preseason sleeper team to secure a playoff spot. The additions of starter/ace Jon Lester and manager Joe Maddon gives them solid club house leadership.The projected lineup averages an age of 25, with the oldest player being recently acquired: Miguel Montero at age 31. The projected pitching staff averages at about age 28, with age 31 in Lester being the…

    It’s a sad night in Houston, Texas as long time Texans star wide receiver Andre Johnson seems to be done with the team. It’s a mutual split as Johnson was told he would have a lesser role and he then requested to move on via trade or be cut. Johnson spent 12 seasons in Houston starting almost at the teams inception; he made them watchable when nothing else about the team was. Johnson brought hard work and some of the best route running in this generation to Houston as no matter their record he brought the same effort. Johnson compiled 64 touchdowns and over 13,000 yards in 169…

    Today, the New York Giants signed former All Pro defensive end Jason Pierre Paul to the franchise tag. This move means he will receive a little over 14 million (franchise tag averages top three defensive end contracts) for this season. JPP now has a year to prove not only to the Giants but to the rest of the league that he is worthy of the big long term contract. JPP needs to return to his 2011 form when he was an All Pro that every tackle feared. For the Giants, this leaves them with more than ten million to spend in free agency or to re sign players such as Safety Antrell Rolle. This move…

Despite many disagreements, Danny Ainge did what is best for the franchise.Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson did what was best for his franchise as he added a piece to a team looking to win another championship.

    9 Feb 2015 | 7:15 am
    Shunning the standards in about every route from gimmicks to appearance, the 4lb 15oz. (in .308 trim) Mountain Ascent is a genuinely radical flight from the brain desensitizing absence of creative ability one can discover on almost any firearm shop’s rack. Where this somewhat restless styled Kimber makes its name isn’t in its wild looks, but instead its weight; 4lbs 15oz. It’s not going to win on value point, nor actually styling and magnificence despite the fact that the machining is grand for a processing plant offering, however on the robust premise of being the lightest…

Doral’s Blue Monster course is 7,481 yards, and was revamped prior to the 2014 renewal.

    Stuttgart will make another attempt to escape the relegation zone after they successfully convinced everyone in the match against Dortmund they can play better than what their current Bundesliga standing suggests. On Friday they host Hertha Berlin, the 14th Bundesliga team that come from a 1-0 win over Augsburg. The hosts are unable to win in seven matches, and after the undeserved defeat against Borussia Dortmund, they played a well-deserved 1-1 draw against Hannover 96.

The first leg of the semi-final sees Lazio at home, which might favor Napoli as the away goal rule might end up being crucial.

The hosts have a one point advantage over Sunderland and will look forward to continue the tradition of winning against them set since 2010. After the 1-1 draw against Manchester City, Hull City went on to win two matches in a row and concede only one goal, only to end up in heartbreak against Stoke after Peter Crouch’s goal.

In 2008 a total of 12 teams used the franchise tag, 15 in ’09, 13 in 2011 and a record 19 in 2012.

The GM on Long Island made one move in particular that won’t be as heralded as some others but could have just as much of an impact on his team as any move made at the deadline. In a goalie swap with first overall pick hopefuls, Snow traded largely inconsistent backup Chad Johnson and a 2016 third…

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

Meanwhile on the other side of things we have the Bulls who fancied themselves a title contender as well until recently when D Rose and Jimmy Butler were knocked out for at least a month.

The Warriors (the NBA's best team) did struggle against the Nets earlier this season in a 102-98 win, but that really has no bearing here.

If I’m being honest, I needed more time to try to find something wrong with the trade, because my first instinct was that it was perfect for the Bills and that just didn’t feel right. It felt unnatural…

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

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

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

    Arsenal, despite not being at their best, kept up their strong push for a Champions League place by moving up to third after a win at home over Everton. It was a great response from the Gunners after Tuesday’s loss to Moncao in the Champions League which no doubt left Arsene Wenger highly embarrassed In defeat Everton at least put in a solid performance and were probably the better team after the break. However they lacked the cutting-edge needed to break through the Arsenal defence and Roberto Marintez’s side remain six points clear of the drop. Giroud Bounces Back After a poor…

    28 Feb 2015 | 11:49 am
    The Gunners welcome Roberto Martinez’s Everton during lunch time on Sunday in an all-important game to booster their respective league aspirations. Arsenal come into this tie on the back of a dismal showing on Wednesday against Ligue One giants Monaco. The Gunners will be looking to appease their fans with a triumph over the Toffees. Wenger appeared dissatisfied with his team after the Monaco shamble and would have probably worked around the clock to find an antidote to the grey areas in his team. Speaking ahead of the game, Wenger stated categorically on the need to put up a strong…
  • 5 Things To Watch Out For: Chelsea vs Tottenham

    Joshua Rowe
    28 Feb 2015 | 3:00 am
    Chelsea vs Tottenham - Capital One Cup final Sunday see’s the first final of the season as Chelsea face Tottenham in the Capital One Cup. Whilst it is a match which some fans may see as a pointless distraction to the Premier League season, the boost that winning a trophy can give a squad is undeniable. Although some may say that Chelsea are used to winning trophies, especially under Mourinho, and therefore the players and fans aren’t that bothered about winning, this would be the first trophy in Mourinho’s second spell as manager and will definitely act as a springboard. Spurs on the…

Mit dem 3:1 aus dem Hinspiel im Rücken und einem formstarken Luis Suarez auf dem Platz wollten die Katalanen im fernen Villarreal nichts mehr anbrennen lassen.

  • St. Vincent Biggest Oscar Snub of 2015

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

    Dr. Jimmy Wall
    9 Feb 2015 | 12:57 pm
    The new, fashionable claim is that privacy is dead. Which is understandable. Even I have made this claim. As it is close to two years since we learnt that the NSA is keeping a very close eye on everyone connected to the Internet — especially if they use online services located in the United States. Yet there seems to be a collective ‘meh’ when it comes to privacy, even if we have a number of options to guard our privacy. Also, any uproar regarding encroachment on privacy tends to be short-lived. I’ve lost count of how many times people have been upset with Facebook and how they…

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

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

Since open enrollment began on Nov. 15, 6.8 million people have been insured through the Health Insurance Marketplace at Healthcare.gov, including 4.5 million renewals and auto-renewals. The uninsured rate in the United States has sunk to 12.9 percent and fallen 4.2 percentage points since the Affordable Care Act’s requirement for Americans to have health insurance went into effect one year ago, according to Gallup. The uninsured rate was 18 percent before the…

    The final four day pre-season test prior to the 2015 Formula One world championship got under-way today at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain. Williams Martini Racing driver Felipe Massa topped the session with the quickest time seen at Catalunya in testing so far. Massa’s time of 1’23.500 is half a second faster then last week’s Catalunya test benchmark set by Romain Grosjean for Lotus. Williams have had a quiet pre-season so far, but today they have shown that they may be a force to be reckoned with. Marcus Ericsson and Sauber had a great day of running after…

    Jim Racalto (CSN Philly) In what is thus far the biggest move of the NFL offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles agreed in principle to send star running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for talented linebacker Kiko Alonso. Depending on who you ask, you’ll get a different answer when asking who got the better of the deal. The real answer is, both teams did. This is the first trade I can remember in awhile involving a star like McCoy that’s actually 50/50 after taking all factors into consideration.

The reason is unclear, but most likely the fact that her dad is one of the biggest and richest celebrities in the world had something to do with it. In the video, Iyanna appears to hold her own even though she is outnumbered. Afterwards, she had something to say about the incident on social media. The video has since been removed from YouTube.

      Liverpool’s narrative has over the weeks begun taking a different turn; once considered destined to finish out of the European spots, they have gathered momentum over the weeks to slowly but surely stake their claim for a top four finish. Daniel Sturridge’s return from injury may have provided a much-needed psychological boost after a lengthy layoff, after the news of Steven Gerrard’s imminent departure to America caused some invisible damage. But he is not the sole reason for Liverpool’s upturn in fortune – far from it. The revival of Sterling after a string of fatigued…

Liverpool spent 16 million pounds on the gamble that is Mario, and he has so far produced a return of only four goals to abysmally justify his price tag. While many fans took to the signing of the 24 year-old with a pinch of salt, it was inevitable that wherever Mario goes, rumour mongers and tale twisters follow. However, is that justified? Me thinks not. In the…

    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,…

    2013-2014 was something of an eventful year for the United States Men’s National Team.   In October of 2013, the Stars & Bars qualified for their seventh straight World Cup and midfielder Graham Zusi was canonized by El Tri fans after equalizing in a meaningless CONCACAF qualifer against Panama—Mexico qualified for Brazil after a two-legged inter-continental win over New Zealand.   The U.S. were drawn into the Group of Death for the World Cup and somehow finished second among the likes of Germany, Portugal and Ghana. This was the pinnacle for the team as their…

  • NFL Insider Can See Bears Moving Up For Marcus Mariota

    Erik Lambert
    4 Mar 2015 | 1:57 pm
    Weeks ago the idea was thrown out there that the Chicago Bears could be considered a dark horse in the sweepstakes to draft Marcus Mariota, assuming of course that Jameis Winston went 1st overall to Tampa Bay as many expect. It was pure speculation at the time given the uncertainty surrounding current starter Jay Cutler under the new regime of GM Ryan Pace and head coach John Fox.  There was no hard evidence or credible rumor to indicate Chicago was actually interested. That changed when ESPN reporter Sal Paolantonio got in contact with Mariota’s agent and inquired about which teams…

    Late last night, word began surfacing the Philadelphia Eagles were in the process of working on a deal to trade their franchise running back, LeSean McCoy, for All-Pro linebacker, Kiko Alonso, from the Buffalo Bills. Naturally, social media exploded. Bills fans rejoiced for the most part, while Eagles fans were left scratching their head. Let’s not act as if Alonso is not an extremely talented player, but you don’t see a running back of McCoy’s caliber moved everyday. This was a blockbuster. According to Rotoworld, a source informed ESPN’s Josina Anderson that LeSean…

    Unless you live under a rock, by now you’ve heard of the major trade executed by the Philadelphia Eagles to unload LeSean McCoy to Buffalo in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso.  Once complete it will make the 9th Oregon player that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has acquired for his team, leading to the running joke that they will change the name of the franchise to the “Philadelphia Ducks.” It has also sparked a run of other trade rumors as well, including Chicago Bears Pro Bowl guard Kyle Long.  After all, the Eagles are in need of help at the position and Long played…

One of the last players selected by NFL teams on draft day. Each one of them had hundreds of players chosen before them. Two out of three of the players mentioned went on to have Pro Bowl careers filled with championships. The third survived for four seasons and started 44 games. It may not sound like much, but that’s more playing time than many of the hundreds of players selected before him. Cutler treating Webb with the utmost…

    The Chicago Bears offense is not as needy in comparison to the defense but that doesn’t mean the team will stop looking for solutions to make it better.  One area that could use a little boost is wide receiver.  Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall did all the heavy lifting the past two seasons.  They could really use someone to help ease the pressure on them. It seems the Bears may have somebody in mind in former Miami Dolphins standout Brian Hartline.

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

    Jose Mourinho has revealed Nemanja Matic injured himself whilst celebrating Chelsea’s League Cup Final win over Tottenham on Sunday. Matic, who was suspended from the Wembley showpiece because of his red card the previous week against Burnley, twisted his ankle when he joined his team-mates’ celebrations on the pitch at the final whistle. Chelsea won 1-0 at West Ham on Wednesday night to keep their five point advantage over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, but Matic would not have been fit to play had he not been serving the second game of his suspension.

    The soap opera surrounding the future of Dani Alves looks to be drawing to a close with the player’s agent claiming he is close to signing for another club. The Barcelona full-back is out of contract in the summer and is yet to be offered a new deal by the Catalan club. With Alves turning 32 soon, it has been widely believed for some time that the Barca hierarchy are keen to find a replacement for the Brazilian. But the issue is complicated by the fact that Barcelona are forbidden from signing players in the summer due to a transfer embargo handed down by FIFA, and the club are thought to…

As the Chelsea fans sang: ‘there’s only one Kurt Zouma’, the West Ham faithful replied: ‘Would you let him on a train?’. The chant is of course reference to the racism scandal which engulfed Chelsea in February, as a number of their supporters stopped a black man from boarding a Paris metro before their Champions League clash against PSG.

But Giggs refused to get too excited after another insipid United display.

    The 2015 NFL Draft will have not one but two Heisman Trophy winners vying for a job with an NFL team in Quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.   It really isn’t that rare of an occurrence anymore as it has happened in eight prior drafts since 1950 with four of those eight since 2006 and in each of the eight occurrences, it was because one of the Heisman winners was at most a college Junior when they won the award.

But that’s not to say that player-for-player trades do not happen because a person has to look no further than one of the current teams in this trade to find a recent one.

    After hearing that Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is open to a trade, I had to wonder to myself, “Where the heck will he end up?” There are quite a few possibilities in this situation. Obviously, the first possibility is him simply staying with his current team. The front office and coaching staff are well aware of his ability, even as he reaches that age where running backs start to hit that well known skid. Clearly, dumping him to another team would free up A LOT of cap space. That’s $12.75 million he is due, folks! That would help tremendously with free agency coming fast.

    Ted Thompson using the Franchise Tag is almost as rare as Ted Thompson entering into free agency. That’s a major point of contention for Packer fans. Why not tag Randall Cobb. Instead, the Packers are all but guaranteed to have to enter a bidding war should the team’s goal be to keep Cobb. Cobb, 24, is one of the bright young stars at wide receiver in the NFL. There will be league wide interest in adding Cobb. The higher the bids for Cobb go, I fear, the less likely it is the Packers can put together an offer to keep him. What does that mean for the Packers? The short answer is it…

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:57 am
    Any potential suitors for Petr Cech will need to come up with “huge money”, according to Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. Chelsea manager Jose Mourino says it will take “huge money” to prise goalkeeper Petr Cech away from Chelsea. Cech joined the club from Rennes in 2004, and has since won 12 major titles including three Premier Leagues and one UEFA Champions League crown. This season has seen Cech usurped as Chelsea’s regular number one by Thibaut Courtois, with the former only making five league appearances so far in 2014-15. And speculation has been rife that…

    Lazio are set to host Napoli in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final tie on Wednesday night at the Stadio Olimpico. The Biancocelesti started off their Coppa Italia run in the third round by defeating Bassano Virtus 7-0, before going on to claim victories over Varese, Torino, and AC Milan to book themselves a place in the the last four.

Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking rates RB Leipzig as one of the most attacking teams in the 2. Bundesliga, and warned his players "even the slightest lapse" could cost them victory. RB Leipzig will host Wolfsburg in the DFB Pokal's round of 16 on Wednesday and Hecking expects the home side to attack at every opportunity. Wolfsburg have already overcome second-tier clubs Heidenheim and Darmstadt 98 in the German cup this season but Hecking expects a different challenge at Red Bull Arena.

    Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has played down the significance of Monday's game with Roma even though his leaders can go 12 points clear. Serie A's top two clubs meet in Rome with the hosts desperate for a win to keep alive their faint title hopes. Juventus, on course for a fourth successive title, are nine points clear with 13 matches left after Monday. "It will be a very, very important game for the league, but not crucial," Allegri said. The Old Lady have lost just once in the league all season although their last two away matches - at Cesena and Udinese - have ended in draws.

    My first trip as a head coach was a disaster. We were to travel 90 minutes for a day of competition. Twenty kids, a few rowing shells, for several events. Very simple in the big scheme of things. I was so wrong. I had ordered the team lunches, but for the wrong day. I had requested transportation, but had neglected to get gas money. We were departing at 7am, but I ignored major road construction that added an hour to our drive. We arrived late, athletes got hungry, and I had to borrow gas money for the trip home.

But not this year. Ohh no… This year we’ve been thrown a knuckleball. Batter Up! A knuckleball is a pitch which has the tendency to move unexpectantly and erratically, veering from its original path. It looks like one thing, yet becomes another. Here’s the thing … coaches are thrown knuckleballs all the time: A starting player has to go home for a family emergency, right before the big game…

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

    With friends like Christine Brennan, Jameis Winston doesn't need any enemies.

With all the compassion of your beloved teacher in third grade, she advises Winston to sit down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and open up about all his past misdeeds, including, one assumes, the rape charge that was never proven. My take on Winston is a little different. IMHO, most of his antics, while irresponsible and juvenile, were…

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

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

    When the regular season begins, the Yankees should absolutely use a platoon at shortstop with Didi Gregorius and Jose Pirela.  Didi's inability to hit left-handed pitching has been well publicized which is why having Pirela against righties makes so much sense.  Pirela played in seven games late last season and performed well, even though it was a small sample size.  He had a slash line of .333/.360/.542 with 13 total bases in 25 plate appearances.  Another great stat due to the power of a small sample size is the fact that he hit .833 against lefties (5 out of 6).  A…

  • When Steve Bull Ruled The World

    4 Mar 2015 | 3:34 am
    May 27th 1989 was a memorable day for British football. Not only did mass hooliganism following the Rous Cup game between Scotland and England at Hampden Park signal the end to an annual fixture that had begun in 1872, it also marked the international debut of a living legend – Steve Bull. It wasn’t so much the goal itself, albeit a cracker, it was more the emotional rush that I knew I shared with many thousands of fellow Wolves fans. It was the culmination of a dream and just reward for singing ourselves hoarse for the previous two seasons with the refrain, “Bully for England.”…
  • Hand in Glove: How Smith & Carlos Shook The Mexico Olympics

    A year before Hendrix mutated the lost ideals of the Star-Spangled banner with an electric guitar driven protest at Woodstock, it got a rude awakening in the Olympic Stadium in Munch. On the evening of October 17th 1968, three athletes entered the Olympic stadium in Mexico City to take part in a medal ceremony for the men’s 200m, a race which had been completed earlier that day. The winner, American Tommie Smith was joined by his compatriot and bronze medalist John Carlos. Joining them on the podium would be an Australian sprinter called Peter Norman who had split the fellow countrymen…
  • Happy Birthday Zico

    We’re not going to pretend we’re old enough to have seen Zico in his pomp, but our Dads raved about him and that Brazil 82 team and we couldn’t let his 62nd birthday pass without sharing him at his best. A master of the dead ball and with the ability to ghost past defenders at ease, Zico scored a ridiculous 476 career goals in 697 club games from attacking midfield and rattled home another 48 for Brazil. The footage above might be a little bit grainy at times, but for us that just makes it better. Although we’d watch it with the volume down, unless you like The Killers…
  • The Day Liverpool FC Broke My Heart

    Seven years old and having experienced nothing but success as a young Liverpool fan, my heart was snapped in two by a blonde haired eagle… To be born a Liverpool supporter in 1983 was to enjoy a cossetted introduction to the life of being a football fan. Such was my good fortune, raised as I was on stories of magical Anfield European nights, the wit and wisdom of Shankly and countless viewings of my dad’s VHS of ‘Kenny Dalglish: Portrait of a Natural Footballer’. Football fandom appeared to be simply an extension of my happy-go-lucky existence, in which the primary function of…
  • F1’s Social Media Ignorance Is Mad, Bad & Dangerous To Growth

    28 Feb 2015 | 2:10 am
    It’s 2015 and F1 still doesn’t have a dedicated YouTube channel or Facebook page and seems completely unable or unwilling to engage with it’s young fanbase. With numbers dwindling, will Bernie Ecclestone wake up? Someone once asked me what I’d do if I was in charge of F1. I had to take some time out to think about this. Because as much as many F1 fans would love to destroy Bernie’s F1 regime, I’d wager half of said people wouldn’t know the first place to start if they actually were put in charge. So I had a think, and then it hit me. This sport HAS to come out of the…

  • VIDEO: Steve Francis Gets Dragged To The Ground By His Gold Chain, Ouch

    Steve Francis had a rough night. Troy Taormina/USA TODAY Sports In this video from TMZ Sports, the former NBA and Houston Rockets star was on-stage at a Sauce Twinz (they’re a rap duo, not the Rockets cheerleaders to the right), when some sort of altercation, misunderstanding or whatever you want to call what happens at these rap events occurs. Francis appears to just be standing there, not appearing to be involved in the ruckus, when a man comes over and tries to rip the thick, gold chain from Francis’ neck. Needless to say, it didn’t break and Francis got dragged to the…
  • Sooo, It Looks Like The New York Yankees Are Running Out Of Jersey Numbers

    It must be a tough job to rebuild a team, especially when you don’t have enough jerseys for players to tryout in. Reinhold Matay/USA TODAY Sports Apparently the New York Yankees are encountering a strange problem at spring training this year: they’re running out of jersey numbers. Yes, they are literally running out of numbers to give the players. Seeing how they can start at zero and go all the way to 99, you’d think that would be impossible. But with such a storied franchise such as the Yankees, it’s actually not that hard to believe. Just take a look out past the…
  • He’s Still Got It: Michael Jordan Joins The Forbes Billionaires Club

    Looks like even a team with a losing history can make you a billionaire. Brian Spurlock /USA TODAY Sports Michael Jordan joined another elite club on Monday by being named to the Forbes Billionaire List. Although the Jordan brand from Nike paid his Airness about $90 million last year, it’s his majority stake in the NBA franchise Charlotte Hornets that helped propel Jordan onto the list. Jordan’s net worth shot up last year after his ownership of the Hornets went from 80% to 85.5% last year. After Steve Ballmer bought the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion, the value of the…

    How many of you, when you hear the name “King James”, think of LeBron James? Troy Taormina/USA TODAY Sports Well, I’m assuming all of you who’ve been watching basketball for the past 10 years would think of LeBron. The Houston Rockets took a little jab at LeBron on social media by calling their own James Harden, King James on Twitter. Long live the new King.

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

    Robert Deutsch/USA TODAY Sports Okay, so there may be a little fiction behind that headlines… okay, maybe alot. Earlier this month we poked a little fun at Tom Brady, when he posted a picture to his Facebook page of him working out with his “trainer.” It looked like a great time, but I felt that Brady could be pushing himself a little bit more in the weight room. Maybe he heard us, because he definitely increased his workload. Brady was having some fun on Facebook today and posted the perfect photoshopped picture of him planking with Vince Wilfork on his back. In full pads.
