In the video below, Philadelphia Phillies fans can be heard calling him a cheater from the stands, unwilling to forgive or forget his purchase of PEDs from Biogenesis, denial of said purchase, and the slap on the wrist that followed.

    The NBA regular season began on 29 October 2013; that was almost 6 months ago. Since then, the 30 teams in the league have staged 1230 games – many of which were meaningless even before the teams showed up at the venue. Last weekend, the NBA Playoffs began and those games will last another two months. I mention this to illustrate one of the key elements of college basketball that I find far more attractive than NBA basketball. College tournaments – conference tournaments and the post-season tournaments – are “one-and-done”. Obviously, the NBA has a much higher talent level than does…

That certainly applies to stand-up comedy; it surely applies to investing; timing may not be everything in the world of politics, but it is surely a critical ingredient in political success. Warren Spahn once described the role of timing in baseball: “Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.” I mention this because the timing might not be worse with regard to an IOC event next month. According to a report in the NY Post, on 8 May a group of IOC officials will hold a video conference with 5 cities who have expressed interest in hosting the 2022 Winter…

    Buster Olney of ESPN had a report last week that one of his executive sources in MLB thinks that baseball games should be shortened to 7 innings. This exec cited the lack of pitching and the injuries to pitchers as a significant problem for MLB that would be alleviated to some degree by shorter games. He also thinks that the pace of play in baseball is too slow to hold the attention of young people today and shortened games would be a plus on that axis too. [Aside: His analysis of the attention span for lots of young folks today is on target; some do not have the attention span of a kitten.]…

Talent alone does not keep teams in contention for a championship in multiple years.  The key appears to be the entire organization, not just the 53 players on the field and the numerous coaches.  Its structure, from the owner to the punter must be solid, disciplined, and exist of a single mind; to win the big game in February.…

He helped make a (2006) standard Bears offense look great by putting them just about mid-field every time someone kicked the ball his way. Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Roddy White can already move the ball efficiently, but if you have someone who puts the ball at the 50-yard line any time it comes his way then that is pretty much guaranteeing the team points.…

It took until the final 30 seconds of overtime on Tuesday night, but the Washington Wizards took Game 2 from the Chicago Bulls in stunning fashion, 101-99. Washington jumped out to an early lead in the first half, taking a seven-point lead into the third quarter. Bradley Beal led the way for the Wizards, as the smooth-stroking shooting guard tallied up a game-high 26 points by the end of the night. Chicago turned things around in the third period, allowing Washington to score just 14 points compared to…

    Too much swag for one Zamboni. If I told you Nick Young was at Game 3 of the Sharks-Kings series in Los Angeles Tuesday night, you would say, "Oh, I bet he's wearing a customized 'Swaggy P' Kings hockey sweater." You would know this instantly. And you would be correct. Here it is. RT @ArashMarkazi: Of course, Swaggy P is wearing an @LAKings jersey with Swaggy P stitched onto the back. — Lake Show Live (@LakeShowLive) April 23, 2014 And if you guessed he got to ride the Zamboni, you would be correct again: Here's a photo of him on the ride.

    This series will be decided in the tabloids. The Toronto and New York tabloids have been in rare form during this Raptors-Nets playoff series. Trash talk and tight play between the two teams have given them ample fodder. The Raps won Game 2 Tuesday night, so the Toronto Sun got to take the most recent pun swing for its Wednesday sports page: With all the hype, you'd think #Raptors hadn't won playoff game in 6 years...oh, wait.

  • Reaction to Albert Pujols' 500th home run

    Bryan Kilpatrick
    22 Apr 2014 | 8:03 pm
    Twitter, as expected, provided us with great stuff after Pujols reached the 500-homer milestone. Albert Pujols became the 26th player in major league history to reach 500 home runs, but not many of the other 25 did so in the Twitter era, especially as it exists today. As such, instant reaction like we have never seen in this context was readily available. Looks like history was made twice on Tuesday! First, a pair of baseball writers provided interesting nuggets of information surrounding the milestone blast: Pujols also hit his 400th at Nats Park -- off Jordan Zimmermann the day they…
  • Albert Pujols home run #500: Doing it backwards

    Steven Goldman
    22 Apr 2014 | 7:57 pm
    Albert Pujols reaches a career milestone, but who does it have meaning to, and who should it have meaning to? On Tuesday night, Albert Pujols hit his 499th and 500th home run. This is a joyous moment. Despite his diminished performance as a Los Angeles Angel, the veteran first baseman is one of the great right-handed first basemen of all time, and now he has achieved one of those traditional baseball milestones that signify that status. He even did it in style, becoming the first hitter to reach the 500 mark with a two-homer game. And yet, this is also an ambiguous moment. Pujols did all his…

    One of the best days of the early season took place last Thursday, my 2014 Baseball America Directory arrived in the mail. It’s a handy tool work-wise, but I love looking through each teams’ organizational charts to find names of guys I either knew or crossed paths with, or just liked as player’s. Every year is different, and while the list changes ever year it’s also getting shorter too, which is kind of sad. Just means I’m getting old, too. A few to chew on; Doug Bochtler, Dbacks, pitching coach for Low A team in South Bend. From the AFL in ‘94, fun guy.

Members of the Dugout Central staff and readers are again challenged to predict the number of wins in the regular season for each of the thirty major league baseball teams in the Sixth Annual Dugout Central Challenge. It requires an in-depth knowledge of all thirty teams to accurately predict the number of wins for every team – a lot more than for picking division winners and a wild card team for each league. Relative strengths within the division, within the league and between leagues also come into play.

One was simply to take the average win difference (AWD) between our picks and the final win totals. The other used root mean square error (RMSE), which penalizes really bad individual predictions. In the AWD contest, it was close but I edged out John for first place. The final AWD standings: *Average 7.11 *Over/Under 7.23…

Although online sportsbook TopBet recently wrote an article discussing America’s favorite Super Bowl commercials, the irony is that live online viewing of the Super Bowl with the commercials included, likely won’t happen anytime soon. In a few months, CBS Sports is going to stream the The Masters…

    23 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Shoutout to everyone under the age of 30 that will log into Facebook today. Y'all put the "lost" in the "Lost Generation."  GET WHOOPED THEN, BEARCATS. Urban Meyer wanted more night games, and Urban Meyer gets what he wants. BTN released their primetime slate yesterday, and it was announced the Cincinnati-Ohio State banger will be a 6 P.M. kickoff. That brings Ohio State's night games to an unprecedented four. I'm glad I'll be working during those games, otherwise I'd end up in the Workhouse. (If you're asking yourself "What's the Workhouse?" consider yourself blessed.) CHAD LINDSAY ROLLS…

    It's hard being a teenager these days. It's harder being a teenage athlete. It's hardest being a teenage athlete trying to follow in the prodigious footsteps of a potential Hall of Fame father. Welcome the world of Keyshawn Johnson, Jr. A regular kid who loves video games (NCAA series and Madden, especially) and wants to study how to program them in college, Keyshawn realizes there's some parts of his life that will never be regular. "I've felt (pressure to live up his dad's name) since I could walk," Keyshawn the second told Eleven Warriors. "It's nothing new to me anymore. It has its pros…
  • Alabama Transfer Chad Lindsay Has Chosen Ohio State

    DJ Byrnes
    22 Apr 2014 | 11:49 am
    Ohio State's quest to rebuild an offensive line that lost four starters received a major boost this afternoon, as former Alabama center Chad Lindsay has chosen to sign with the Buckeyes, according to CBS Sports' Jeremy Fowler. Lindsay started four games for the Crimson Tide last season and is a former three-star recruit from Woodlands, Texas. He has already graduated from Alabama and will be eligible to play immediately.  Lindsay visited Ohio State, Michigan, Cal, Louisville and Oklahoma. So far this spring, Pat Elflein (right guard) and Taylor Decker (left tackle) are the only two players…
  • Ross Fulton's Spring Game Takeways: Piecing Together an Offensive Line

    Ross Fulton
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:15 am
    With a vanilla playbook and its returning starters largely not playing – most prominently Braxton Miller – it is dangerous to draw too many conclusions about the Ohio State offense from the Buckeyes' spring game. Nonetheless, the scrimmage provides certain insights and areas for improvement, most notably along the offensive line. Keeping it Simple Given that most expected starters did not play – and the ones that did participate appeared for 1-2 series – it is not surprising that Urban Meyer and Tom Herman stuck to the basics. The Buckeyes extensively worked the short passing…

  • Video: Albert Pujols hits 500th home run

    22 Apr 2014 | 5:08 pm
    If Albert Pujols is having a bad season, you'd have a hard time convincing him of that right now. The Los Angeles Angels first baseman just hit his 500th home run. He actually hit home runs No. 499 and 500 in the same game -- and Pujols still has couple at-bats left in today's game against the Washington Nationals. Pujols hit a solo shot off the Nats' Taylor Jordan in the fifth inning Tuesday, which gave the Angels a 6-2 lead. More importantly, it gave Pujols his 499th career MLB home run. Pujols hit a three run homer in the first inning to give the Angles a 3-0 lead. When he…

  • Wisconsin Football: Badgers RB Melvin Gordon Has Chance to Win Heisman

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:42 am
    Wisconsin Badgers running back Melvin Gordon rushed for 1,609 yards last season. Sure, he played the majority of every game and didn’t have any injury problems, but he also shared the ball with 1,444-yard rusher James White. That’s 3,053 yards between the two of them. The Badgers as a whole rushed for 3,689 yards in 2013. Those are some gaudy numbers. But with White gone, can Gordon carry the torch for Wisconsin? If he can manage to stay consistent throughout the year, it’s only a matter of time before he starts to enter the Heisman Trophy conversation as a major…
  • Oakland Raiders trade Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks

    22 Apr 2014 | 8:39 am
    The Oakland Raiders are apparently all in on Matt Schaub, now that they've traded away Terrelle Pryor to the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks will get Pryor, an exciting and capable backup to Russell Wilson, and the Raiders get a 7th round pick from the Seahawks. In 11 games (9 starts) with the Raiders last year, Pryor threw 7 TD passes and 11 interceptions. He also ran for 576 yards and 2 TD, including one 93-yard scamper. He still needs polish as a passer, but Pryor is an extremely good running QB. He's not exactly like Russell Wilson, but their skill sets are similar enough that…
  • Police officer trips students while rushing the field after high school soccer championship

    Vandegrift High School in Texas just won their first ever state championship in girls soccer. Naturally, the students in attendance were excited about it. They started rushing the field to celebrate with the players. No big deal, right? It's a high school game. Players, parents and fans often mill about on the field after high school games. It's not unusual at all. Apparently Georgetown police officer George Bermudez had an issue with it. He started tripping students who were rushing the field, seemingly at random.

    A year ago, I was in Washington DC for work when I received a text message from my daughter that a bomb exploded at the Boston Marathon.   So surreal.  Washington almost immediately folded up shop and was on high alert.  One of my colleagues had taken his kids to the Red Sox game earlier in the day, with the intention of heading to the finish line at the end of the game.  Neither of the kids were of a mind to head down, so they just left the area. Such a scary time in the city.  A week or so later, suspects identified, began a wild chase, the city of Waterown locked down for the better…

    Pro MMA Miesha Tate has gotten her first UFC, defeating Liz Carmouche at UFC on Fox 11 in Orlando, Florida Saturday by unanimous decision. Tate (14-5) looked a little sluggish in the first round, with Carmouche controlling the takedown and grappling game. Tate warmed up more in the second with her striking, despite getting taken down again by Carmouche and stifled on the mat. Tate pushed forward in round 3, getting a takedown of her own and taking side control. Tate threatened with several chokes throughout the round, with Carmouche surviving a tight rear naked choke.

The greatest teams are made up of players who keep their egos in check by setting aside personal desires, and living by the motto, whatever it takes to make the team better. This means putting the team first by simply asking one question every time you have to make a decision. What is in the best interest of the team? For example if something doesn’t feel right it is a player’s obligation to speak up so he doesn’t jeopardize his team’s chances of winning. No doubt nobody is perfect, but if something…

Punjab rode on Glenn Maxwell’s blistering 43-ball-95 to set a mammoth 194-run target against Shikhar Dhawan-led Hyderabad. In reply, Hyderabad were not able to put up a fight and Punjab bowlers came up with a superb show to bundle them out in 19.2 overs. Maxwell’s knock was studded with nine sixes and five fours. The Aussie, who was dropped by David Warner off Karn Sharma in the 10th over before…

He is the sole decision-maker when it comes to the on-field matters. There is not much team talk about that,” said McCullum when asked about his role in the team alongside other international captains in Dhoni, Faf du Plessis of…

  • Can Mouth Guards Prevent Concussions?

    Sponsored Post
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:10 am
    Some mouth guard manufacturers, but very few scientists, claim that mouth guards prevent concussions. The fact of the matter is that the rotation of the head from a blow and the subsequent violent movement of the brain inside the skill will not be slowed down by a mouth guard.There are two scientific studies from the 60’s that are often quoted by people who attempt to prove the contrary. The problem is that these two studies do not show any decrease in concussions, or traumatic brain injuries, they just point towards a possible effect on decreasing force transfer from the jaws to the skull…

Yes, I am talking about Robinson Cano, don’cha know?

The greatest teams are made up of players who keep their egos in check by setting aside personal desires, and living by the motto, whatever it takes to make the team better. This means putting the team first by simply asking one question every time you have to make a decision. What is in the best interest of the team? For example if something doesn’t feel right it is a player’s obligation to speak up so he doesn’t jeopardize his team’s chances of winning. No doubt nobody is perfect, but if something…

This series is a big one not only because Tropicana Field, the dome home of the Rays has not been the friendliest place to the Yankees over the last few years. It is the Rays themselves, who have been a problem for the Yankees since 2010. Since winning the 2009 World Series, the Yankees have gone 32-41 vs. the Rays, and 14-22 at the Trop.

Since the start of the 2013 season the Braves have won 18 of the last 25 head-to-head meetings between the two N.L. East rivals. This rivalry is starting to feel like the Cowboys and Redskins with the Braves always seeming to get that lucky bounce or close call to fall their way.

  • Orioles Improve Depth with Trade for Lombardozzi

    24 Mar 2014 | 10:39 pm
    Steve Lombardozzi The Baltimore Orioles made a very good trade by acquiring Steve Lombardozzi from the Detroit Tigers for veteran Alex Gonzalez. This is a huge move for the Orioles because Lombo’s a very solid player that can play almost any position on the field and plays the game the right way. This kid will become a fan favorite very quickly in Baltimore. This is a steal of a deal for the Orioles front office in my opinion because they gave up essentially nothing to dramatically upgrade their bench. Gonzalez is a 37 year old player that really had no future with the Orioles once…

It’s nice to see the salary cap handcuffs taken off the Washington Redskins after a two-year penalty imposed by the league office. Now I’m hearing the team linked to many of the big name players on the market, but that was always the case before the team was exiled unjustly by the a-holes in New York. Most of those rumors are nothing more than B.$. being floated by agents trying to drive up the price tag of signing their clients.

    The Sox played the earliest game of the season yesterday with the 11am Patriots Day start.  The Sox were holding a 2-1 lead in the series and had Clay Buchholz up against Wei-Yin Chen for the O’s.  To say that Buchholz struggled would be a gross understatement.  Buch didn’t make it out of the 3rd inning and left the Sox in a huge hole. The bats tried to rally and make up for it, but fell just a tad short and ended up splitting the series. Buchholz didn’t give up a run until the 3rd inning, but once the gates opened he couldn’t get them closed.  Buchholz suddenly…

Peavy gave up a solo HR in the 1st to Nelson Cruz who continues to just pummel Sox pitching.  Peavy also gave up an RBI single to Wieters and a sac fly to Hardy.  Sox 0-3.  Peavy kept the score 0-3 until the 5th…

  • What men look for in a good outdoor coat

    Richard Murray
    20 Apr 2014 | 1:54 am
    It is fairly simple to understand what women typically look for in a coat. They want something that is feminine and will keep them warm, yet compliment the widest range of clothing that they have in their closet. Those who shop for mens coats do not search for features that are too different, with the exception of the feminine factor, of course. Most men want coats that are durable and versatile. Many do not want the task of having to shop for a new coat every chilly season, so they look for coats that can last for years. This is as much about the savings they see in their wallets as it is…

    Also known as HRM, heart rate monitors are a useful health and fitness tool that provides the user with feedback on their heart rate. This feedback can be used to monitor daily health or help improve exercise and training sessions. Some HRMs do more than just measure heart rate, many come equipped to track a wide array of statics that can be used to maximize your fitness routine. The major advantage of using a heart rate monitor is that you don’t have to stop to manually check your pulse during workouts. They are also fairly accurate at measuring caloric expenditure, also known as calories…

    The filming of the Entourage movie is in full swing and this week saw UFC fighter “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey take on her cameo role in the movie. In the scene, Ronda is playing herself and the script shows the Entourage gang biting off more than they can chew when they get into trouble with Ronda.   The cast of Entourage are sitting inside their black Escalade car when Ronda jumps out of her red Corvette brandishing a nightstick with a pink handle. She then smashes it into the bonnet of their car, showing off her fighting skills to good effect.   The reason this particular scene was…

  • Ranking All 30 NBA Coaches

    John English
    22 Apr 2014 | 2:26 pm
    Now that the 2013-2014 regular season is over, here’s how I would rank the 30 coaches for the job they did. 1. Gregg Popovich (Spurs) – We keep thinking this aging team will drop off but they never do. 2. Tom Thibideau (Bulls) – The front office gave away Luol Deng, Derrick Rose went out again, and Thibs still coached this team to a fourth seed. 3. Jeff Hornacek (Suns) – No one though the Suns would end the season with a winning record, and if they didn’t lose Eric Bledsoe for 39 games, they might’ve made the playoffs. 4. Dwane Casey (Raptors) – They…
  • Reflecting on Tyrone Corbin’s Time As Coach of the Utah Jazz

    Devin Masters

    #FireTy – How glad I am to be done reading that. Before you get too committed to reading this, I’ll give you fair warning – I’m a #TyBot;  a promoter of “The Narrative” we hear so much about; someone who blindly follows the word of the Jazz management – or so I’m told. Coach Corbin is out as the head coach of the Utah Jazz.  News of the decision echoed through the Twitter-verse as many fans took to the web to express their joy.  A season of getting almost exactly what fans had asked for had taken its toll on the Utah fanbase, and the change…

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… The year was 1974.  Earth’s population reached the 4 billion mark. UPC (Universal Product Code) or barcode technology was first used in the retail environment. The famous Rubik’s Cube, invented by Erno Rubik made its debut, and the Heimlich maneuver was first introduced.

  • Utah Jazz: What Does 4th Mean in the Lottery?

    Spencer Wixom
    18 Apr 2014 | 2:28 pm
    Today the Utah Jazz won the coin flip!  What does that mean?  We now in the 4th lottery position.  So let’s take a look at what our odds are of winning the lottery. Interestingly enough the 4th pick is the least likely pick, besides the 7th, that the Utah Jazz could land.  The Jazz now have a 33.35% at a top 3 pick.  Those are great odds right?  The 5th pick however, is the most likely landing spot statistically.  Let’s take a look at the historical results of the lottery to see if the higher odds have really won more often. In the 19 years of the modern draft structure, the…

    Bradley Beal shines for Washington as the Wizards take the first two games in Chicago. It took until the final 30 seconds of overtime on Tuesday night, but the Washington Wizards took Game 2 from the Chicago Bulls in stunning fashion, 101-99. Washington jumped out to an early lead in the first half, taking a seven-point lead into the third quarter. Bradley Beal led the way for the Wizards, as the smooth-stroking shooting guard tallied up a game-high 26 points by the end of the night. Chicago turned things around in the third period, allowing Washington to score just 14 points compared to…

    Too much swag for one Zamboni.

    This series will be decided in the tabloids. The Toronto and New York tabloids have been in rare form during this Raptors-Nets playoff series. Trash talk and tight play between the two teams have given them ample fodder.

  • Reaction to Albert Pujols' 500th home run

    Bryan Kilpatrick
    22 Apr 2014 | 8:03 pm
    Twitter, as expected, provided us with great stuff after Pujols reached the 500-homer milestone. Albert Pujols became the 26th player in major league history to reach 500 home runs, but not many of the other 25 did so in the Twitter era, especially as it exists today. As such, instant reaction like we have never seen in this context was readily available. Looks like history was made twice on Tuesday! First, a pair of baseball writers provided interesting nuggets of information surrounding the milestone blast: Pujols also hit his 400th at Nats Park -- off Jordan Zimmermann the day they…

    Steven Goldman
    22 Apr 2014 | 7:57 pm
    Albert Pujols reaches a career milestone, but who does it have meaning to, and who should it have meaning to? On Tuesday night, Albert Pujols hit his 499th and 500th home run. This is a joyous moment. Despite his diminished performance as a Los Angeles Angel, the veteran first baseman is one of the great right-handed first basemen of all time, and now he has achieved one of those traditional baseball milestones that signify that status. He even did it in style, becoming the first hitter to reach the 500 mark with a two-homer game. And yet, this is also an ambiguous moment. Pujols did all his…

    Quarterback Drop Fundamentals In today’s video blog post, I am sharing an awesome set of drills for working on the Quarterback Drop. Great for pre-practice, warm-up or end of practice conditioning, these quarterback drop drills will help you coach your quarterbacks more efficiently! Tandem Drops This is a basic drop drill where you will direct your quarterbacks on a 3-step or 5-step drop, and they drop in unison. I like to use this as a pre-practice and get as many reps as possible, so we don’t use the centers in this type of drill. You can use 3-steps, 5-steps, and even 5-steps…

    This is a fantastic warm up and agility drill that we like to do to get the eyes and hands ready to go. This agility drill allows players to work on both agility and catching the football. Breaking Down the Popcorn Agility Drill In this agility drill, the coach is going to throw the player as many balls as he can while they are moving laterally. Your focus is on working lateral movement, and not clicking the feet. Be sure to keep the head and eyes up. The player shouldn’t cross over, and they should stay right on the line the entire time. The second time through, I sometimes add a…

    In football, its important to know exactly what should happen with the feet on contact with the block. In today’s video blog post, we are breaking down the exact technique to use to make proper contact with a defender. How To Make Proper Contact with the Football Defender When you are engaging the football defender, you want to make sure you have a good, strong base. Without a strong base, the defender is going to be able to throw you off balance easily, because you have no strength in that position. So a good base is very important.

Called up from Class AAA earlier this week and given only 24 hours notice that he was starting, McHugh struck out 12 over 6 2/3 shutout innings Tuesday night in a 5-2 victory against the Seattle Mariners. McHugh, a 26-year-old right-hander who came in with a career mark of 0-8 with an 8.94 ERA in nine starts with the Rockies and Mets the past two seasons, allowed three hits and no walks in leading Houston to its second straight victory.

Tampa Bay Rays left-hander David Price got hit there Tuesday night on a line drive by Joe Mauer but says, somewhat incredulously, that he didn't feel a thing. Price was wearing a protective cup (which not all major leaguers do, but most infielders do) and it protected him from unspeakable pain and perhaps worse in the top of the fourth inning. Mauer turned around a 77 mph breaking pitch, hitting it squarely right back at Price, who could not get his glove in position in time to…

Mourinho’s men hung on for a 0-0 draw away to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday night to make them favourites to reach a third final in six years. However, a clean sheet came at a cost as Mourinho confirmed goalkeeper Petr Cech and captain John Terry will miss the second leg due to injuries that forced them to be replaced at the…

That number may sound good but let’s look at the facts behind the big number. Kids are starting earlier and earlier. 67% of boys and 47% of girls are already on teams by age six (ESPN). Kids are getting busier. 51% of 3rd to 5th grade boys who live in the suburbs play on 3 or more teams (ESPN). Kids are defining themselves by their sports. 61% of all boys who play say that sports are a big part of who they are;…

    Nine years in the NFL and another 20 in the NCAA doesn’t happen by accident. A career like this happens when a coach knows how to develop talent—and knows how to win. In 1983, with no coaching experience, Waynesboro, Virginia native Charlie Coiner had big dreams and made a bold move by approaching a new (now national) coaching figure. His timing was perfect. In 1983, Charlie Coiner served as a graduate assistant at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Mack Brown, now Head Coach at the University of Texas, had just begun his first head-coaching job. Coiner recalls, “I…

    How much success have you passed up by not giving just 1% more? Success is not determined by the opinions of others. There is no ruler that measures success, nor will there ever be, or has there ever been. Success is not determined by how hard you think you have worked, how early you rise, or how late you retire. Success is not purchased, it is not negotiated, it is not given to you, it is not taught, and it is not inherited. The dictionary defines success as the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors but even that is not success. Failure is not the race that is lost,…

    The Atlanta Hawks pulled off the biggest upset over the first weekend of the NBA playoffs as they stunned the No. 1 seed Indiana Pacers on their own home court. In fact the game was not even close. This was the second time this season that the Hawks crushed the Pacers in Indiana. The Pacers had worried their fans with the way that they had finished the season, but now they are in panic mode. The Pacers are in a must win in game two as they need to show their fan base that they are still a team that should be considered a contender for the NBA Championship. Despite the game one loss, the…

    The Chicago Bulls are one of the best defensive teams in the NBA, but on Sunday they ran into an opponent that seemed to have exactly the right game plan to deal with them. As a result, on Tuesday night they are going to be playing to get even with the Washington Wizards, who now have a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. NBA playoff betting action begins at 9:35 PM ET at the United Center in Chicago.

    The Rangers have out-shot the Flyers 69 to 39 through the first two games and can be forgiven for taking Game 2 a bit lightly after dominating the first game 4-1. Now that the Flyers have tied the series, expect New York to come out more focused and take at least one of the two games played in Philadelphia, which would put them back in control of the series. In the other series, Montreal will look to complete a sweep of Tampa Bay tonight and the Lightning will once again be forced to go with Anders Lindback in goal. Lindback isn’t the only reason the Lightning are down 3-0, but he hasn’t…

The Astros, Cubs, and Diamondbacks hold the worst records in the league and a lot of teams are hovering around .500. So far, four of the six projected division leaders are in first place, including the Braves who were supposed to win the division before the Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy Tommy John announcements.

    It’s hard to believe that the race is over.  It has been over 5 years and close to 15,000 miles since I first qualified for Boston in 2008.  Now I can say I have ran my first (but not last) Boston Marathon. I can also say that I am fairly sure I will be losing my first toenail in 18 years of running. (Just in time for summer sandals, perfect!)  That one little toe hurts worse than anything on my body today! I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to this trip. The truth is that my memories started before I even got here.  The overwhelming support I have gotten from…

I get nervous before any marathon, but this one even more so.  The later start time and the logistics of running in a new and very big city contribute most to my nerves this time.  I have also never done an out of town marathon without a friend that is also running.

I first have to say I was way overdressed.  With this crazy weather in Nashville it is hard to predict and the 40’s can feel colder some days than others.  I wore my Asics Half Zip and a tank, but would have been better off in a good long sleeve running shirt…I was a little warm!  The good thing though about half zips is that you can unzip them and let a little air in!

Normally I would opt to go to the gym and make the miles up another day. I was ok with getting caught in it mid run, but I had a tough time making myself start in it. That is until the Country Music Marathon last April when it poured the whole…

    21 Apr 2014 | 5:53 pm
     Box Score ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. - On Monday, the LIU Post pitching staff wasn’t able to contain Molloy College senior outfielder Dayna White (East Islip, N.Y.) as she went 6-for-8 and drove in seven runs in the East Coast Conference doubleheader. However, some of her teammates struggled versus the Pioneers, as did the Lions’ hurlers, as Molloy dropped both games, 9-6 and 10-6. The Lions are now 21-18 overall and 13-7 in the ECC, while the No. 18 Pioneers improved to 35-5 on the year and 21-1 in the conference.

    The Washington Wizards entered tonight’s game 2 Eastern Conference Playoff contest against the 4th seeded Chicago Bulls having already taken home court advantage after their 102-93 win on Sunday. What would be a surprised win in game 1 turned into another stellar performance from a team that supposedly lacked playoff experience. If the Wizards roster was to be truly dissected and analyzed from a playoff experience perspective, one would see that this team was actually built for the playoffs. In their second straight win (101-99) on favored Chicago’s home court, the Wizards got…

The Washington Redskins’ owner was attending a ceremony at a local high school celebrating that his organization is donating money to refurbish the school’s sports field. “We understand the issues out there, and we’re not an issue,” Snyder said. “The real issues are real-life issues, real-life needs, and I think it’s time that people focus on reality.” Snyder, while apparently no closer changing the name of…

Sometimes all three feelings are present in the mind of the thinker. This May 14th, Gibbs will be awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 25th Annual Burgundy & Gold Banquet in order to honor his very special professional and personal accomplishments. These successes are not trivial. The man has three NFL Super Bowl Championships to his credit as head coach…

  • Ohio State Tickets Overpriced For the Spring

    11 Apr 2014 | 4:25 pm
    Ohio State reduced the price of Spring Game tickets today back to $5 a piece, the price they were at for most of the Jim Tressel era. The original price was $12 in advance and $20 at the gate. The weather should be decent tomorrow but the enthusiasm to fill the stadium might not be a fever pitch with fans after a little bit a let down by the team to end 2013. Parking at the stadium is free and if you did pay the higher price, the difference will be donated to Life Sports and the Boys and Girls Club. Returning a ticket starting the 14th for a full refund is also an option.

Sometimes these can happen when there is an injury, but Dunn was just clearing space for others like now graduated back Carlos Hyde and true freshman Ezekiel Eilliot. Others also saw time including red-shirt freshman Warren Ball and now the most seasoned back at Ohio State, Rod Smith. (Remember when he was looking at playing on the defensive side of the ball.)

    16 Apr 2014 | 12:46 pm
    Pitcher JB Bukauskas of Stone Bridge High School in Ashburn, Virgina, is throwing some heat! At a recent game, there were more than 20 MLB scouts with radar guns. With every pitch from Bukauskas, the scouts’ radar guns were recording throws of 96, 95, 96 mph. The 17-year-old Bukauskas’ recent performance of a blistering fastball, biting slider and a batter-freezing change-up finished the game with 11 strikeouts for the second time this season. Bukauskas recently signed with North Carolina to play at the next level, but experts are expecting him to be chosen as early as the first…

Playing in the sand is the answer for almost every off-season question. Playing in the sand has provided plyometric, cross training and cross fit benefits long before these training…

    Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman is the latest-signing and the coolest-named incoming Michigan basketball freshman in the class of 2014. He is also this offseason’s first of our yearly “Getting to know” interviews with the incoming recruiting class. Abdur-Rahkman’s recruitment was hasty but effective — Michigan began recruiting him a couple months ago as an option in the likely event both Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III left for the NBA. After both did, Abdur-Rahkman was brought to campus for an official visit, where he committed on the spot. We spoke with…

    22 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Michigan landed a commitment from Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman on Saturday and extended an offer to Aubrey Dawkins shortly afterward. While their concurrent visits had been pegged as an ‘either or’ scenario, the fact of the matter is that Michigan isn’t going to host recruits for official visits that they aren’t going to offer – especially at this stage in the process. The Wolverines clearly wanted both prospects in hopes of shoring up their backcourt depth next season. The move makes sense because Abdur-Rahkman and Dawkins are very different players, despite their similar heights and…

    What more can we say about Jordan Morgan’s final season? Michigan’s redshirt senior was the bedrock of this Michigan team in every way but offense: he was the leading rebounder, the quarterback of the defense and the team’s emotional center. Morgan was the consummate leader, and exactly the kind this young, talented team needed; on a team stocked with NBA talent. Morgan was an example of what can happen when you keep your head down and put in the work. (Photo: Dustin Johnston) The final few regular-season Big Ten games served as an extended send-off for Michigan’s…

  • UNPACKIN’ it MINUTE: The Ultimate Comeback

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:20 am
    As sports fans, we love comebacks. When a team is losing by double digits, but finds a way to win, we cheer in amazement. When athletes battle back from a gruesome injury, we applaud them. The ultimate comeback that no one can compete with is what we celebrate this Easter weekend. It’s the fact that Jesus was here on earth, died on a cross, after three days came back from the dead, and lives today. Acts 2:24 says, “But God raised Him from the dead, freeing Him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on Him.” The comeback Jesus had changes…

    Wild on SportsNHL Power RankingsApril 1, 2014For a second straight week the Boston Bruins, the hottest team in the NHL, holds down the top spot. The Bruns have won 15 of their last 16 and posted a 15-1-1 record in the month of March. Just incredible. The defending Eastern Conference Champs are firing on all cylinders and looks poised for another deep playoff run. At #2 this week are the St. Louis Blues. The Blues had won three straight this past week before a tough loss to the Dallas Stars. They still remain one of the top teams in the West and have been extremely dominant since the trade…

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: Colorado RockiesBy Wild on Sports MLB Analyst Aaron Dorman2013 Overview: The year before, the pitching collapsed and the formerly competitive Rockies unit looked like they might need a rebuild. 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…

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: San Diego PadresBy Wild on Sports MLB Analyst Aaron Dorman2013 Overview: A nearly identical year to the previous. Injuries in the rotation. Some rookie surprises in the field (Logan Forsythe in 2012, Jedd Gyorko in 2013) and also some complete meltdowns (Nick Hundley in 2012, Cameron Maybin in 2013). Above .500 in the second half of the year. Everth Cabrera only plays a half season; in 2012 it was an injury, in 2013 it was steroids. Perhaps this current version of the Padres is epitomized by Yonder Alonso, an unusual and intriguing talent who nevertheless…

Most of their starters regress, Angel Pagan goes missing for most of the year, and nobody comes in to fill the hole left behind by Melky Cabrera, who hit .346 in 2012.

    While it’s always noted that playoff series’ are a grind, the importance of the first game can not be overstated to both oddsmakers and bettors alike. The opening game this year caused series prices to shift by an average of 135 cents, or $1.35 (i.e. +150 to +285), but not all wins are created equal.  Pittsburgh was an overwhelming -280 favorite to win their series against Columbus, and a 1-0 series lead moved those odds to -500.  On the other hand, St. Louis secured a massive 3-OT win over Chicago in their opening game to maintain home-ice advantage, but their odds to win the…

I let my nutrition go crazy, gained few kilograms (thankfully mostly due to weight lifting) and lost a lot of endurance. I was too slow and too tired to have good photos taken :p. Instead - photo of Gomez and Brownlee fighing for 1st place!

    3 weeks ago I started long weight lifting program. I’m not a weight lifter, nor I ever plan becoming one, but I figured that this would be the best approach right now. I don’t plan any big event anytime soon (except ITU Olympic distance Triathlon and some Ocean Swim), so working on my basics seems reasonable. This year is going to be running one, as I want to finish two marathons and couple of shorter runs. So I’ve increased my volume and injured myself at the end of second week of new program.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been more tired than while trying to run last 15 km of last Sunday race. They say ignorance is a bliss, and this time I had no privilege to be a first timer. Well, the plan was simple - don’t mess up swim too much, smash the bike, survive the run and do it all below 5:30. You might say that it’s a low goal, but being a smoking coach potato for many years I found it accurate for a second half Ironman race. Mission accomplished, and I’m now even more hungry for that sport.

When I ended working for my last company I had the most unproductive period of the last year (and yet it definitely was not the most unproductive period of my life… sad but true). Lack of need of getting up early, not knowing how is next week going to look like and general boredom - not the best combination.After I moved to Auckland it took me few weeks to settle down and figure out everything. I’ve found quite good gym, near by swimming pool and good places for open water swimming. But most importantly I’ve found new…

    This post is a training diary for Sam’s sessions during Week 12 of the Expert in a Year challenge. Week 12 took place between Monday 17th and Sunday 23rd March 2014. It was a pretty standard week. We managed to get in six hour-long training sessions, all in the kitchen. We are now two-thirds through the first stage of this project, focused on technique. The highlights video is below and includes commentary from myself and Sam. Monday 17th March 2014 We had a decent morning session with Sam working on his blocking against my loop.

We are well into March now and really starting to feel the pressure of time on our progress. If we are to have any chance of reaching our goal of getting Sam into the top 250 by the end of the year then he needs to have mastered all the basics pretty soon.

    On Friday 7th March, during week ten of the challenge, Sam and I headed over to London Moberly Table Tennis Club to meet, head coach, Sherwin Remata and get his opinion on Sam’s development so far. Sherwin is a very competent player and coach. He is a solid top 100 player in England and has many years experience coaching players of all abilities. I told Sherwin roughly where we were up to (mainly working on Sam’s topspin strokes and open-up) and asked him to have a look at everything and try to tweak things as much as possible. I set the tripod and video camera up, got out my…

It’s almost the Easter holidays (which means I get two weeks off from coaching at school), so I should have no excuses for not getting back up to date. Week 10 saw Sam receive an hour of private coaching from Sherwin Remata, a top 100 player in England and head coach at London Moberly TTC.

It really feels like we have got into a stable training routine now and ‘Expert in a Year’ has just become a part of normal life! We bulk of the week was spent working on shots like the topspin loop and the open up (on both forehand and backhand). These a vital strokes for any serious table tennis player to perfect and we are spending a lot of time on these. To check out the…

  • Freekickerz: Getting the football under control, the first step to hone your skills

    Sporting E
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:14 pm
    The key to any sport – or anything for that matter – is to have full control of what’s happening. Whether the ball is round, flat, oblong – it is every player’s task to make sure that he is controlling the ball. When he can control the ball, he can defend it; he can pass it ideally to his teammate; he can most likely make that shot or that goal. This explains the age-old piece of advice handed down from generation to generation of footballs players: “a good first touch is getting the ball under control.” This is a crucial step toward taking that huge leap from…

  • A Skill School Helps in your Football Journey

    Sporting E
    1 Apr 2014 | 5:26 pm
    Football requires as much skill as any other sport, if not more. As a matter of fact, naming it “football” can be a little bit misleading – it is not only the feet that are involved in playing the sport… the rest of the body is as well. Apart from the feet, players also use their heads, chests, knees, and legs. On the technical standpoint, that’s a lot of body parts to develop skills for. And because these skills aren’t inborn, children should undergo proper training as early as possible if they wish to even have the chance of turning pro someday. It need not be said just how…

If he fails, however, he may be the recipient of another crown - the best fighter in UFC history to have never won a title.This unwanted and unfortunate honour has a few potential candidates, Kenny Florian and Dan Henderson perhaps being the most noteworthy. Faber is slightly unique though, he can't quite win a world title but he is head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. He is the best of the rest.Faber has had 36 professional fights - 30 wins and 6 losses.

Well, not quite.I know Weidman has a world championship belt and functional limbs but he, too, can be considered rather unfortunate following his duels with Silva.Bear with me.Weidman's victories, life changing career-propelling wins, can both conceivably be called flukes.

At UFC 164, he will be fighting for recognition, something that has so far eluded his tenure as champion, and, because of the opponent, redemption.As a lightweight in the UFC, Henderson is 7-0 and 4-0 in title fights. That is an impressive feat. The manner of many of his victories, however, has been less so.

Here’s a look at Game 2: 1-0 Bruins Boston’s David Krejci takes the puck in his own zone after Tomas Tatar fails to get it deep. He flips it to center ice, where Riley Sheahan sees it and sweeps it back into his own zone, taking the puck away from Brendan Smith. Howard comes out to play the puck and…

One Detroit Red Wings player actually being in the right position could’ve meant the rush didn’t happen. Go back to the beginning of the play. The Bruins dumped the puck in. Datsyuk got to it in the corner, but had Brad Marchand on him, so he touched it up the boards for Abdelkader. Patrice Bergeron closed on Abdelkader, leaving the pick for Reilly Smith. While that happened to Abdelkader,…

    I have recently embarked on a beer nerd adventure, a rather sedate adventure, but it’s exciting to me. I am creating a “beer education binder” for my fellow bartenders at work. Perhaps adventure is the wrong word. This process has been fun and thus far rewarding for me. The binder includes “one sheets” on each permanent tap we have with ABV, pricing, style, tasting notes, brewery info, food pairings from our menu, substitutions and some other stuff. I am also compiling BJCP, MBAA and brewery info on the styles we offer should the anyone want to get Cicerone…

  • Wizards win 101-99 in OT to take 2-0 lead over Bulls

    Thomas Threlkeld
    22 Apr 2014 | 10:19 pm
    GAME NOTES: The Wizards now have a 2-0 lead over Chicago as the series heads to Washington. This is the first time in franchise history Washington has led a playoff series 2-0 by winning the first two on the road. THE GAME TURNED WHEN… The Bulls led 87-77 with 6:58 left in the fourth quarter, mostly thanks to scoring from DJ Augustin and Taj Gibson. However, facing a 10-point lead in a road playoff game, the Wizards responded — eventually. Martell Webster nailed a 3-pointer ten seconds later, but then nobody scored for two minutes and the Bulls held a seemingly-secure 7-point…

    I have to admit, I have been pretty happy over the past 36 hours. The Wizards won a playoff game! No, they didn’t win a series, nor have they won the NBA championship. Why does it feel that way? At 930pm Tuesday night, we will find out if it was all a mirage, or that Washington basketball is for real. When you really look at it, a split in Chicago is something anyone would have taken prior to Sunday night. If the Wizards lose tonight, they still have captured the home court advantage. When it comes down to it, doesn’t it seem like Washington plays better on the road? Lots of news…

    Giants have been busy this off season with many free agent signings and players leaving. Here’s my predicted depth chart for the upcoming season pre-NFL draft for the New York Giant offense: QB: Eli Manning/ Ryan Nassib/ Curtis Painter: This position is all but set in stone two time for Superbowl Champ Eli Manning. He’ll be the starting QB once the season begins and with the resigning of Curtis Painter, it seems unlikely the Giants will go QB at all in the draft after drafting Ryan Nassib in last year’s draft.

Many have come out in defense of the goalpost dunk saying that the NFL now stands for the no fun league. But why do we need to have a celebration of somebody dunking the ball over the goal post? Why not act like players that have been to the end zone before? The act of dunking the ball is a pure individual showboat in a sport that is team orientated. Eleven guys helped make that play a score and the guy showboating the game needs to…

With all of this action and movement, let’s see who got the worst and best of the busiest free agency in NFL history. Here are the bottom five: 5.

    Recently, my youngest daughter came up to me, vary cavalier, asking: "Dad, what is the Illuminati?" In a state of shock at her knowledge of the very word, I found myself unable to speak. Hell, most adults have no idea about the Illuminati. I really didn't know how to answer until suddenly the honesty spewed forth: "Baby, they are a group of people intent on taking over the world." Her response: "Beyonce is a part of the Illuminati." My response: "None." Why no response? I'm not in the business of proving people guilty of things without facts.

    "Life is happening FOR you." Digest that for a little bit. The more you embrace it, the more you realize it is, without question, credible. I first heard those words from Aaron Bomar, a man who has become one of my dearest friends in the world. He's something special folks and he is the real deal."Life is happening for you." Not only do I continue to hear those words--even to this day--but I can hear Aaron saying them in his trademark, never-to-be-mistaken southern drawl. Now, this is a man whose own life story can hardly be mistaken for 'life happening for him.' He grew up in a foster home.

I have gotten to know Brenda a little bit over the past, let's see, two years or so. I got to know her even better several months back when we met. She was sick as a dog but over pizza and chicken wings she told me her backstory. What a story! Abandonment, trauma, despair--all a part of her past. As she sniffed up the cold trying to contain and conquer it, I tried not to sniff up tears. Then, like the plot in a movie you don't see coming she talked about making a difference.

     The stigma that surrounds the issue of mental health in Ireland is a sad truth. There’s no denying that when it comes to certain topics in society Ireland isn’t the leader of the pack, in fact more often than not we’re the last to reach the finish line. At a time when people are struggling everyday just to make ends meet mental health needs more attention than ever. People are being forced to stay in jobs they hate and are being pushed to new limits in order to survive in our current economic climate. The backlash of this will be felt sooner or later.

For example, at the end of one chapter towards the middle of the book, we are told about an eccentric, to put it mildly, American couple living in rural France who live an isolated life pretending they are in the nineteenth century. They dress in the style of the time and fill their house with antiques and life-size dolls in the appropriate costumes. This chapter ends with a comment…

    Given the plaudits heaped on Gareth Evans’s stunning 2012 Indonesian action masterpiece, The Raid, expectations for its sequel could not have been higher. The Raid 2 (its subtitle, Berandal, was dropped for UK audiences) has been keenly anticipated, of course, but its glorious progenitor set a standard many filmmakers — even those as ambitious as Evans — would simply choose to leave unchallenged.While The Raid came out of nowhere to amaze Western audiences and achieve almost universal critical acclaim, questions lingered over whether something so watertight, so self-contained, so…

One of the origins of the rumour allegedly came from a Glazer family member. So does this rumour have any legs?

With the wheels coming off Manchester City’s challenge in a 2-2 draw at home against the relegation-threatened Sunderland on the weekend, it looks as if the title has now shifted to a two horse race. The pressure of having to play catch-up in matches clearly couldn’t be handled by Manuel Pellegrini’s men, having picked up just the one win in their last four. The Citizens will now have to wait until Monday to get back into action at the Etihad against West Brom.

    Fulham will travel to the 6th placed Tottenham in search of those three points that will bring them out of the relegation zone. Even though the stakes are high for both teams, the hosts are supposed to win in order to distance themselves from Manchester United who have a game in hand. The bookmakers favor Tottenham to win and more than one goal to be scored. The hosts had a draw in their last game which doesn’t help at all their hopes of finishing in front of a lack luster Man United. To their credit Tottenham displayed a far better character than their opponents as their managed to come…

    Chelsea vs Sunderland is an interesting Premier League match if only due to the fact that while Chelsea are battling for the title, Sunderland are at the very bottom of the table, and would need more than six points to avoid relegation. It’s no wonder then that The Blues start as favorites with 888sport to win, as they have 1.18 odds to do so. Not many would have seen Sunderland walking away with a point from the match against Manchester City, one could think that to an extent they didn’t even think so themselves.

The bookmakers favor the hosts for the three points, especially since Elche is on the 15th place in the table and Atletico didn’t lose at home since November 2013. Elche will not be able to count on Ruben Perez for the match against Atletico, as they would have to pay 300.000 Euro to the hosts for the right to use the player belonging to Atletico Madrid. Taking into account the fact that Perez played for the entire 90 minute in the first match of the season, and Atletico had no problem…

The hosts needed the win in order to distance themselves from Fiorentina and get a firm grip on the third Serie A place. If anything, the Argentina coach will be happy to know he can count on Higuain and not only Messi for the World Cup, as the striker helped his team get a third victory in a row over Lazio in all domestic competitions this year.

The hosts were heading towards a monumental result after practically being relegated, but a deflected shot ended their hopes and sent Everton onto the top four teams of this season’s Premier League. Deulofeu was deemed Man of the Match as he was always in position to score, created other several chances and would have credited with the 75th minute goal, had it not been deflected.

    The championship is finally upon us. In what will be the lowest combined seeding ever, the 7 seed Connecticut Huskies will take on the 8 seed Kentucky Wildcats. Both teams have gone through different roads to get to where they are and have been on fire since the tournament started. The Huskies won the championship in 2011 and the Wildcats followed cutting down the nets in 2012. 7 Connecticut Huskies vs 8 Kentucky Wildcats The Wildcats were a preseason ranked number 1 before the season started. They fell out of that ranking losing twice to Arkansas, a lost to LSU, and were embarrassed by…

    Fun Times at Coliseum Friday night the Oakland A’s/Seattle Mariners game was postponed due to bad infield conditions. The bad infield conditions were due to an infield that remained uncovered and had endured overnight rainfall. Now in any other ball park this would take some doing but wouldn’t be a issue, at which doesn’t really drain properly this cause sewage backups and mushy on the field conditions (see picture below). Mushy infield dirt caused the game to be rained out without the rain   However what was even more maddening was that the way the organization handled…
  • NL West 2014 Season Preview

    Jose Escudero
    4 Apr 2014 | 12:05 pm
    There’s a tried and true expression that goes, “Anything worth having is worth fighting for” and for some time the NL West has hosted the embodiment of that in sports. The NL West has the most changes of fortune that the majors have seen in the past decade and a half span and it’s not for the lack of trying it’s because the NL West has simply not been able to maintain completeness in the teams that call it home season on season. This is until the Guggenheim group rolled in, seized the Dodgers and dumped copious amounts of money to turn it into NY Yankees West. With a fall of grace…

  • What Would’ve Happened If Nobody Had Gotten Hurt in the NBA This Year

    Jeff Stotts
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:01 am
    When Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls’ dervish of a point guard, went down in the 11th game this season, it was the 2012-2013 season all over again. Rose sat out that entire season recovering from a torn ACL and watched his team finish 45-37 and put up a fight against the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs. This season was supposed to be different — and now it wasn’t going to be at all.Something else wasn’t different: The Bulls managed to finish above .500 without Rose yet again. That was for a whole host of reasons: the remarkable play of center Joakim Noah, the…

    Major League Baseball is slowing down at the same time that its formerly slowest team is speeding up.The New York Yankees haven’t dominated the majors since 2002, winning just one world championship over that period. But they’ve dominated MLB rankings for length of game. From 2002 to 2012, the Yankees’ average length of game was in the top four of the 30 major league teams each season, including five league-leading performances. Yet lately they’ve gotten faster: The average Yankees game has been shorter each year than the year before since 2009, culminating in last…
  • A Hot Goalie Isn’t a Better Goalie

    16 Apr 2014 | 4:19 am
    With the NHL playoffs starting this week, all eyes will be on the goaltenders, hockey’s masked men. A goalie’s time on the ice is a solitary existence, with flurries of activity punctuating long periods of inaction. Hockey has been called the ultimate team sport, but all too often the goaltender finds himself alone as the puck approaches.Because the goalie is a team’s last line of defense, it’s no surprise that strong performance in net is incredibly important to winning a hockey game. During the regular season, save percentage (the generally accepted shorthand measure of…
  • Just How Bad Were the ‘Bad Boys’?

    15 Apr 2014 | 10:24 am
    This Thursday, ESPN22 will air its latest “30 for 30″ documentary special, “Bad Boys,” which explores the notorious Pistons era that brought Detroit back-to-back NBA championships 25 years ago. Along with my colleagues at Grantland who are running “Detroit Week,” I’ll be publishing articles relating to the “Bad Boys” narrative and legacy. This is Part 1, in which I’ll examine whether the Bad Boys really earned their nickname.How “bad” were they? That seems like just the kind of thing a data-driven operation might want to quantify. But…
  • What If An Evil Commissioner Turned Hank Aaron’s Homers Into Singles?

    Nate Silver
    14 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Last week I wrote about Hank Aaron, who recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of his record-breaking 715th home run. I concluded that Aaron would still have been a great player — and would very likely have made the Baseball Hall of Fame — even if all of his home runs had been counted as singles instead.Or at least — that’s almost what I wrote. What I actually wrote left a lot of room for interpretation (emphasis added from original):What if Aaron had never hit a home run? What if those 755 round-trippers had fallen for base hits instead? (If we’re trying to isolate…

    Last night was rough. My first bad day picking baseball games. Maybe the fast paced speed of today's baseball contests, the muscles, the attitude, the sex appeal, MAYBE all of it has just passed me by in my old age. Some days I think about not lacing up the boots and making my picks, some days it's hard to roll out of bed and look at these baseball lines without losing my mind. But there are too many people who have mouths to feed out there that NEED my picks! I'll be damned if children starve because I can no longer interpret the game at a high level, so today, I'm back on the horse and I'm…

Tonight, shits gonna swing back in the home teams favor.ATL (+7.5) at IND over 186.5 (L) (L)Absolutely a no-brainer. Indiana will probably come out and attempt to play their best game of the season, but this just isn't a championship caliber team.

Sorry Stamkos, it's been real. Boston @ Detroit (+1.5) (L)With the series shifting back to Detroit tied 1-1 I expect the Red Wings to put up a tough defensive battle tonight.

There is no reason this will change tonight as the Thunder look to take the 2-0 lead in the series before they head out to Memphis.
