    Today the NBA played the league’s first-ever game in Africa, pitting “Team World” against “Team Africa” in Johannesburg. The game—which managed to be largely boring, yet still a breath of fresh air in the final dog days of summer—was won by Team World, 101-97, and featured one nostalgic and genuinely cool moment when Hakeem Olajuwon and Dikembe Mutombo (who are 52 and 49, respectively) suited up in retro uniforms and took the court. The duo got a standing ovation. Olajuwon even scored, using his marquee move, the Dream Shake, to hit a jumper over Nikola Vucevic.Read more...

Eating raw eggs may be a bit weird to most poeple, but it's certainly not untrammeled ground. I've been lead to believe all boxers eat loads of uncooked eggs by TV and movies, so I'm sure that's 100% true. However, Ott's culinary peccadillos are a bit more, uhhh, gross than that. The first eggs eaten by humans millions of years ago were more than likely consumed just like Ott did it, popping it back in one bite like it's nature's Ferrero Rocher,…

After back-to-back losses, Bigfoot's back was against the wall, and he performed well enough to move right back into the thick of things at heavyweight. Bigfoot lost the opening round. He was doing well enough, but Palelei ended up in top position. “The Hulk” was not able to land too many clean blows to cause damage, but he did enough to secure the round. It was pretty even until the start of the second. In less than a minute, Bigfoot won the fight. He wasted no time in finishing…
  • UFC 190 Results: What We Learned from Jessica Aguilar vs. Claudia Gadelha

    1 Aug 2015 | 7:59 pm
    UFC 190 kicked off with an important contender bout in the other women’s division, as Jessica Aguilar and Claudia Gadelha met to determine who would likely be next for a strawweight title shot. While the world was waiting to see Ronda Rousey ply her trade in the main event, Aguilar and Gadelha took advantage of the spotlight with a spirited affair of their own. Over 15 minutes, Gadelha repeatedly scored with punching combinations and knees, punctuated by occasional takedowns, on her way to a unanimous decision win. Aguilar came on late, perhaps overcoming some Octagon jitters to…

    Ryan Blaney nearly went wire-to-wire Saturday night at the Iowa Speedway as he won the U.S. Cellular 250. Blaney led all but 15 of the 260 laps on the night in what was one of the more commanding performances you'll see in the Xfinity Series this year. With that said, a pair of cautions near the end of the race almost resulted in Blaney's downfall. With five laps to go, Brendan Gaughan threw caution to the wind and attempted to pass Blaney on the inside. The two cars almost made contact, with Blaney avoiding a wreck and remaining in first. The two battled once again following a caution on Lap…

    MLB Trade Rumors MLB Trade Rumors

  • Cubs May Pursue Chase Utley

    Brad Johnson
    1 Aug 2015 | 8:53 pm
    The Cubs may pursue Phillies second baseman Chase Utley prior to the August trade deadline, writes Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. Utley will begin a rehab assignment tomorrow. He would need 251 plate appearances to activate a 2016 option, an exceedingly unlikely event. The former star has struggled this season with a .179/.257/.275 slash. However, a .186 BABIP suggests a rebound is possible. He’s owed about $5MM over the rest of the season. The Cubs would look to have the Phillies cover part of his salary. An Utley acquisition would provide depth to existing middle…

    This week’s complicated three-way trade looks like a great move for the Dodgers, a mixed bag for the Braves, and another deal for the Marlins which appears to be financially motivated, Keith Law of (Insider sub. req’d) writes.  The Dodgers badly needed another starter given the injuries in their rotation and lack of organizational depth and Law believes that Mat Latos is probably worth two extra wins to L.A. the rest of the way. Here’s more out of L.A. The Dodgers are paying $85.75MM for eight players no longer with the organization, writes Bill Shaikin of the Los…

    1 Aug 2015 | 6:22 pm
    An elite starting pitcher was a luxury good for the Dodgers, writes Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. That’s why Los Angeles passed on talents like Cole Hamels, David Price, and Johnny Cueto despite possessing the prospect depth to acquire their pick of the litter. Instead, the club flexed its financial might to acquire Mat Latos, Alex Wood, Jim Johnson, Luis Avilan, and Jose Peraza. The biggest piece dealt away by the Dodgers was 30-year-old Cuban infielder Hector Olivera. The utility man has not yet reached the majors after signing a six-year, $62.5MM deal with the Dodgers.

    1 Aug 2015 | 5:15 pm
    Here are today’s minor moves from around the league. The Mets have signed pitcher Tim Stauffer to a minor league contract, according to the MLB transactions page. Stauffer was released by the Twins earlier this summer and signed with the independent Sugar Land Skeeters in mid-July. He posted a 6.60 ERA in 15 innings with the Twins. Over a 590 inning major league career, he has a 3.94 ERA with 6.73 K/9 and 3.05 BB/9. In his heyday, he worked between 90 and 92 mph. He averaged just 88 mph with his fastball during his stint with Minnesota. The Giants have released pitcher Erik Cordier,…

    Drake is back on the mic with yet another response to Meek Mill's allegations that he uses ghostwriters. The rapper dropped his latest diss track, "Back To Back," Wednesday morning, July 29, after sharing the first, "Charged Up," last Saturday. He comes for Meek with some pretty harsh verses, calling out the fact that he has yet to respond with bars of his own, and instead is using "trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers." (Meek, though so far without a diss track of his own, has been very vocal about the beef on his timeline.) "You love her then you gotta get a world tour," Drake…

  • Mick Fanning Survies Shark Attack | Jeffrey's Bay South Africa

    19 Jul 2015 | 10:07 am
     With a broken leash and a sigh of relief, Mick Fanning narrowly survived a vicious shark attack at the  J-Bay Open. He was sitting out the back waiting for his next wave when a fin surfaced and headed directly towards him from behind. He immediately jumped on his board and started fighting off the shark while trying to get away. This was during the final of the event and Julian Wilson was in the water as well, though not close to Mick.Joe Turpel was in the commenting booth and for a minute it didn't even register what was happening as the camera was on a close up view of Mick.

    It's no doubt that Kelly Slater is the most talented and accomplished professional surfer around; something that has gained him worldwide recognition for all the right reasons.

Simply put, he's a great ambassador and role model within the surf industry.But this week, he's in the hot seat due to the launch of Outerknown, his new sustainable apparel brand. Before we jump into the funny commentary and jokes made at his expense, it's important to note that Kelly has stated…

    The Minnesota Twins lock horns with the Seattle Mariners in their series rubber match. The Seattle Mariners appear to be in the mode of spoiler even though they probably hold out hope of winning the American League West. The Mariners suffered a 9th inning meltdown Saturday in a 3-2 defeat at Target Field for their 6th loss in seven contests.

    Sports nuts aren’t like your average person — they’re not even like your average sports enthusiast. They Love — with an implied capital L — sports of all kinds, and they’re devoted to watching and attending games with religious fervor. They know where all the players on last year’s NBA championship team went to college and high school, and are always on top of whose free agency is going to affect the NFL draft and why. This special breed of sports fan knows obscure stats from decades ago, and they never pass up an opportunity to discuss any game, match, or race.

    Computer security is an inescapable topic these days. Frequent hacks of employers, retailers, and healthcare institutions have put millions of us in the line of fire for identity theft. Like any other business, professional sports teams face these same hazards. They must safeguard social security numbers and other personal data for employees and vendors, but the nature of their trade brings many other safety concerns into focus. Ask the Cleveland Browns or Tom Brady about the importance of secure communication. Both are in hot water in cases involving texting, the Browns for its illegal use…

    1 Aug 2015 | 9:03 am
    Ohio State women's basketball squad may have just got better today. The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that a source close to Kevin McGuff's program disclosed that Stephanie Mavunga, an All-ACC center at North Carolina, will transfer to Ohio State. Mavunga decided to transfer from North Carolina in light of the upheaval following the ongoing academic scandal. Ohio State's team gets an all-conference center who averaged 14.1 points per game and 9.6 rebounds per game last season.

    As human beings, we can sometimes have an almost pathological need to be liked. We don’t necessarily want to like everyone else but we mostly want them to like us. It’s no fun to be disliked. And yet…you, the Ohio State fan, are disliked right now. You are hated by people you’ve never met and people you never will meet. All of us are. This is the price of following a successful sports team that just won a national championship. Even if the Buckeyes were playing the role of the plucky underdogs in last year’s College Football Playoff, it’s not as if Ohio State hasn’t enjoyed a…

    Tim Shoemaker
    1 Aug 2015 | 5:10 am
    CHICAGO — Adolphus Washington didn’t hear the discussion. In fact, he wasn’t even aware it was going on. “I didn’t even know I was being talked about for the NFL,” Ohio State’s senior defensive tackle said Thursday at Big Ten Media Days. “That’s how I knew I wasn’t ready.” By all accounts, though, last year he was ready. Many scouts and NFL Draft experts pegged Washington to go somewhere between the second and fourth rounds in the Draft had he opted to declare after his junior season, one which Washington recorded 48 tackles (10.5 for loss), and 4.5 sacks.

One of the most well-spoken and smartest players on Ohio State's football team, Perry was a no-brainer to speak at the Big Ten Media Days Luncheon Friday. A day earlier, though, he was prompted with a question about young players on his defensive unit who could undergo a breakout season this fall, the year the Buckeyes hope to defend their 2014 national championship.

Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

  • Ben Cherington-Lack of Identity

    Michael Passanisi
    1 Aug 2015 | 11:07 am
    The Herald’s Scott Lauber was correct. The Red Sox made only two minor moves before the trade deadline. This seems to reflect Ben Cherington’s continuing lack of identity. In his press conferences he seems uncomfortable and speaks in platitudes. Meanwhile, the Sox have one of the worst records in baseball and are headed for their third last place finish in four years and are unlikely to even reach .500. Among the questions on the team: Can Eduardo Rodriguez and Brian Johnson be effective starters? Could Hanley Ramirez  and Pablo Sandoval succeed at DH? David Ortiz can’t…

    Pedro Martinez’ number was retired this week, two days after his Hall of Fame induction.  I’m going to pull a Rick Pitino and say “Pedro is not walking through that door anytime soon”. In a 3-page piece entitled “Pedro the Conqueror”, the Globe’s Bob Hohler recounted Martinez’ record with the Red Sox: 117-37, a winning percentage of .760, 11 strikeouts per 9 innings, and a 2.52 ERA, the lowest since Babe Ruth pitched at Fenway.  Who can forget Pedro throwing 6 hitless innings in relief over Cleveland in the decisive game of the 1999 ALCS?

    The Sox came into the final game of the series with the Tigers and hoped to take the game and the series.  The Sox had rookie Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound vs. Shane Greene for the Tigers.  Rodriguez pitched well and more importantly, the Sox offense got all over Greene. The game stayed scoreless until the 4th inning when the Sox got on the board first.  Blake Swihart hit an RBI double and the Sox were leading 1-0.  The lead didn’t last long though as Rodriguez gave up a solo homerun in the top of the 5th to Castellanos.  Sox 1-1.  David Ortiz took the game into his own hands in…

    The Red Sox selected Johnson as the 31st pick in the 2012 draft.  He moved quickly through the farm system. He opened some eyes last year between Salem (A-plus) and Portland (AA), with a combined 13-3 and 2.13 with a WHIP under one. This year at Pawtucket  he continued strong with an 8-6 mark and 2.73 in 16 starts. has rated him a number 4 or 5 starter with a sinking fastball reaching 93 mph, along with an effective curve, changeup, and slider. Unfortunately, he was forced to step in after a fairly long layoff and be the stopper that night. Now he is back in Pawtucket.

    Horse Racing Betting works in two ways: You can bet either on winning horse or on loosing (laying) horse. But, when it comes to winning the bet, the chances are higher on laying horses. If you are betting on a winning horse, your horse has to beat all other horses to win the race. In other words, all other horses are running against you. If your horse looses against any one of them, you lose. Betting on laying horse means picking up the horse that will not win the race. It means all other horses in the race are running for you.

    R Todd Graham
    30 Jul 2015 | 9:38 am
    On November 6, 2015 BYU will visit the San Jose State Spartans.  San Jose St. leads the all time series 10-6 with all but three of the games happening before 1970.  The three more recent ones started in 1998 with a BYU win.  BYU won in 2011, but lost in 2012 in San Jose. Last year San Jose St. finished the year 3-9 and only won two games in the Mountain West Conference finishing the year losing six straight. There is hope; San Jose St. had the 57th ranked recruiting class last year according to 247 sports. That puts them two spots ahead of the Cougars on the same list.

    Throughout independence, the conventional thinking for BYU fans and pundits has been that the Cougars need to join a conference that is included in the self proclaimed “Power 5″ conferences. The massive realignment a few years ago shifted the evolving NCAA football landscape and forecast an eventual doom for the “wanna-be” schools like BYU and Boise State. Ever since then, BYU has continued to fight for notoriety and crumbled under the pressure. While BYU has had its share of big moments, namely two massive wins against Texas, they’ve also had their share of…

Then he suffered from a season ending knee injury last season for the Utes. Now, this season is coming up quickly and he has a chance for a comeback.

    The USMNT defender had a very bad day. Club America lost to Atlas 3-1 on Saturday night in Liga MX play, thanks in large part to this mind-numbingly awful own goal from United States international defender Ventura Alvarado to gift Atlas their second goal. That's the kind of own goal that you look at and just feel awful over. Alvarado was just trying to clear a cross, but got his timing and body positioning all wrong. It doesn't help matters that Alvarado was directly responsible for the other two goals scored against Club America, failing to close down a free runner on Atlas' first goal, and…

According to Zach Lowe at Grantland, Jordan turned down four 1st round picks from the Celtics in exchange for the ninth pick in the NBA Draft.   The Celtics offered four first-round picks for the chance to move up from no. 16 to no. 9: that 16th pick, no. 15…

Arians knows a good coach when he sees one, and he doesn’t let stereotypes get in the way. ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss reports, “For the last two years, [the Cardinals’ coaching staff] was a mix of young and old, black and white, experienced and inexperienced. The Cardinals have three assistants who are 70 or older. One pass rush specialist, Tom Pratt, turned 80 this summer.” He adds, “While most head coaches are looking…

    As host of the Quicken Loans National, we would expect to see Tiger Woods show up ready to display his "A" game. Of course, if you watched any of his dismal play two weeks ago at The Open Championship, it would be difficult to think that was possible. But for the second day in a row, Tiger started out over par only to go six under the rest of the way and post 68 - 66 in the first two rounds. Today he hit 10 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens, sinking some lengthy putts along the way and looking, well, okay, I'll say it. He actually resembled the Tiger of old, especially from a confidence…

But instead we're obsessing over whether a football was inflated below NFL standards, how much involvement star quarterback Tom Brady knew about it and what punishment should be imposed. Really?

Perhaps Cowherd, host for more than the last decade of "The Herd" that aired on ESPN Radio from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm eastern time, forgot that he hadn't yet left the network and was taking too many liberties with his comments.

I'm going to focus on exposing what I believe to be the most courageous and lamest non-conference schedules among major conference teams. We're now in the second season of the College Football Playoff era, and I believe any major five conference team without a non-conference game against another major conference team should immediately be eliminated from contention, with the exception of the conferences that require nine conference games. I understand the argument that tough…

This is where the problem lies. So how can you help her be more relaxed in the game like she is in training or more intense in training like she is in the game? Well, if you’re not the coach and don’t control her training environment,…

And maybe you do. Maybe you ARE doubting your own ability. But responding to frustrated critics rarely does you any good or helps you feel better about yourself or what you do. Stay focused on the players, on what you want to help them accomplish/learn, on your mission and vision for any player you have the honor of working with. You’re not out there for the critics! You’re out there for the KIDS.

    14 Jul 2015 | 8:22 pm
    Protein is an important macronutrient needed by the body. Without it or the lack of it, can result to irritability, hair loss, muscle weakness. If you are an athlete or a fitness enthusiast, protein can help repair your muscles. During prolonged high intensity or strenuous activities like exercise, the muscles, particularly the small filaments that aids in muscle contraction, are strained and microscopically damaged. The body then sends out essential nutrients like protein for growth and recovery. Protein from food can meet your body’s required protein intake. But if you are busy and…

However, with Joe Root continuing his stunning form of the last 12 months, Alastair Cook’s men were dominant for much of the game and they head to Lord’s with a deserved 1-0 lead. The Aussies remain favourites for the Ashes but much will depend on the fitness of key strike bowler Mitchell Starc. As for England, the selectors have named an unchanged squad for the second test but in a long series, we may yet see some changes as the…

  • EXPOSED: Why Chelsea are REALLY struggling to sign Everton’s John Stones

    Charli Casey
    1 Aug 2015 | 3:36 pm
    Chelsea face a serious challenge to sign Everton defender John Stones before the close of the summer window. According to the Daily Star, Jose Mourinho is not struggling to sign the England international because of the Toffees’ reluctance to sell or the Blues’ unwillingness to meet their valuation, but as a result of a sell-on agreement with former side Barnsley written into his contract. The British newspaper reveal that when Stones made the move to Goodison Park in a £3m deal in January 2013, Everton agreed to give the League One side 15% of any future transfer fee. Everton…

    1 Aug 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Chelsea striker Diego Costa is excited over the arrival of summer signing Radamel Falcao, and is convinced that they can form a lethal attack together. “I have played quite a few games alongside Falcao and it worked very well for us, without a doubt,” Costa was quoted by the Mirror as saying. “Let’s hope Falcao can find the form he needs to. I think he looks very happy here and in good spirits.” The duo played together at Atletico Madrid, and despite Jose Mourinho favouring a 4-3-3 formation, the Portuguese manager certainly has the option of nurturing a new…

According to the Express, the Premier League champions were leading the chase and looked to be closing in on a deal after tabling a bid of £15.5m – and Napoli are allegedly willing to sell the Spain international.

    Following an injury, Arsenal probably hoped they could wait for Carvalho’s price tag to drop. Will the price climb higher now that there’s a new suitor? Despite a recent injury that is expected to sideline him for several months, the interest from big clubs – including Arsenal – in William Carvalho has not diminished, and a La Liga giant is about to turn a wholesale bid into a transfer war. According to the Metro, Real Madrid have thrown their hats into the ring for the 23-year-old Portuguese defensive midfielder from Sporting Lisbon. Though Arsenal thought they could…

  • Redskins sign Junior Galette to 1-year deal

    Thomas Threlkeld
    31 Jul 2015 | 11:17 am
    The Washington Redskins have signed former New Orleans Saints pass rusher Junior Galette, 27, to a one-year deal. The deal is worth the veteran minimum salary, which would be $745,000. The Saints released Galette less than a week ago and he was at Redskins Park to take a physical and meet with team officials yesterday. The deal not only puts Galette on the roster for 2015, it also gives Washington a right of first refusal for Galette in 2016, allowing the Skins to match any offers he gets from another team. Hopefully, for Galette and Washington, this will mark a new and better chapter in his…

  • Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland is suspended for one game

    Mark Buterbaugh
    31 Jul 2015 | 8:12 am
    Promising CB Bashaud Breeland has been suspended for one game by the National Football League.  The suspension was due to a police stop last summer that resulted in Breeland receiving a citation for marijuana possession. Breeland was the Redskins fourth-round pick in 2014 and started 15 games during his rookie season.  He was a pleasant surprise in an otherwise dismal Redskins secondary.   In his rookie campaign, Breeland recorded 67 tackles, picked off two passes, and forced two fumbles.  Breeland entered camp as the favorite to start opposite Chris Culliver, despite the return of…

    Reigning National League Most Valuable Player Clayton Kershaw threw 8 innings of 2-hit baseball against Mike Trout and the Angels Saturday afternoon, bringing his scoreless innings streak to 37. (Mandatory Credit: FOX Sports MLB/Twitter) If you heard the Los Angeles Dodgers beat their Interstate-5 rival Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in consecutive games started by Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, you might not be too surprised, considering the duo went 7-0 with a 0.63 ERA in 9 starts in the month of July. Spoiler: you won’t be surprised. Kershaw, entering the day having not allowed a…

(Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images) The 2015 MLB Trade Deadline has officially come and gone, but not without leaving a few ‘breaking news’ headlines in its wake. The foremost conclusion that can be drawn from the whirlwind of recent transactions is that the top half of the American League got better. David Price was traded from the Detriot Tigers to the…

    Newly-added pitching reinforcements in Los Angeles will ease the pressure on relievers working to hold leads for Dodgers’ closer Kenley Jansen. (Mandatory Credit: Hannah Foslien/Getty Images) When the Dodgers acquired Mat Latos, Alex Wood, Luis Avilan and Jim Johnson leading up to yesterday’s non-waiver trade deadline, they were looking to fill the team’s only two glaring holes; the back end of the starting rotation, and a bullpen in disarray. Rather than just adding pieces, however, the new pitchers in Los Angeles could line up to form the most sustainable, well-rounded…

  • Buster Posey’s Pitch Framing Makes Him A Potential MVP

    Rob Arthur
    30 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    At the top of FanGraphs’ wins above replacement leaderboard, you will find the two leading candidates for MLB’s Most Valuable Player, Mike Trout and Bryce Harper. But despite his comparative lack of WAR, San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey may be just as deserving of the MVP. He possesses a secret skill that WAR doesn’t detect: He’s the league’s best pitch framer.Posey is not an MVP candidate solely on the basis of his hitting (.325/.387/.494), even though it’s about 50 percent better than the league average.1 Trout and Harper are 89 percent and 106 percent…

    Once–disgraced slugger Alex Rodriguez turned 40 years old Monday, and he’s still hitting home run hat tricks. His remarkable return to form (at the moment he’s a top-10 hitter despite missing all of last year) has even New York fans who loathed him not long ago mulling his redemption.So just how good, just how unexpected, just how amazing is this season of his?From at least some angles, very. His 23 home runs through 97 Yankees team games (as of Sunday) put him “on pace” for around 38 for the year, which would leave him trailing only Barry Bonds in 2004 (45 HR) and Hank Aaron in…

At the National Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony over the weekend, Craig Biggio was the only batter among the four new inductees.

    On the occasion of this past week’s Major League All-Star Game, when baseball’s absurd abundance of young talent was on full display (Hello, Mike Trout!), the question was worth asking: Where did these two All-Star teams stand historically, in terms of the most gifted groups assembled since the first All-Star Game was held in 1933?The answer might (or might not) surprise you.To get a handle on the talent available to each league in each All-Star Game, I used the run-based components18 of Baseball-Reference’s wins above replacement (WAR) to build a projection system that, in terms of…

Most likely: Greg Monroe.Nutz: The knock on Oakdawg, as he will be known next year, is that he's just not that exciting. He's kind of slow. Doesn't throw down big dick swinging dunks like Deandre Jordan. Doesn't have unlimited three point range and won't block 5 shots a game off the backboard. I would have to agree with most critics on these points.

Go out like a bitch (or the general public) and take the favored Warriors to finish off the Cavs and win their first title since ole "Watermelon Grin" Rick Barry in the 70's?? No thank you. This will probably be the last time until next years finals where LeBron is on a team that is actually getting points (unless the play the Spurs of course), so I am going to take it.

  • In Defense of Troy Tulowitzki

    Colby Rogers
    31 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    The offensive upgrade from Jose Reyes to Troy Tulowitzki is undeniable and hardly worth discussing. In shorthand, Tulo is hitting .300/.348/.471 (in a down year), while Reyes is hitting .285/.322/.385. Tulowitzki is two years younger (30 vs. 32) and will likely never make the $22 million that Reyes is owed next year.1 The Rockies gave up a star, took on a high salary, declining player and got three pitchers2 with varying levels of upside. All of that is interesting, but not as interesting to me as this bit of trade logic. blue jays were said to have been concerned with reyes' defense.

Citing Brady’s failure to cooperate with the NFL’s investigation along with the fact that Tom Brady asked his assistant to destroy a cellphone containing thousand’s of texts, Goodell’s actions are indicative of a commissioner attempting to maintain the integrity of America’s most popular sport at the expense of one of the game’s biggest stars.

One says that we should celebrate them for being the first through the wall and prop them up to show that the world is supportive of the act. Another is that it should be accepted thoroughly and praised privately, but it should not turn into what is so often praise for the sake of praise and ignoring it to a degree is being the most accepting, because it is viewed as par for the course.

    It seemed that the Buffalo Bisons had won the game and won the series, needing only one more out to close. But Pawtucket had other plans, scoring five runs in the top of the ninth inning, including a three run home run with two outs. Pawtucket defeated Buffalo 8-7 in game two of the series.Buffalo’s starter Phillippe Aumont opened the game with insane consistency. He walked the first three batters to come to the plate, loading the bases. He then decided to switch it up, striking out Allen Craig—who has seen a good chunk of big league time with the Boston Red Sox. The Paw Sox next batter…

Following a walk, a gapped line drive to the wall scored the runner all the way from first base.The Bisons countered, with the help of Pawtucket, in the fifth. A tailor-made double play was turned into a run when the Paw Sox second basement launched a throw over the first basemen’s target. The mistake tossed the Bisons in a 1-1 tie game.That tie was threatened by the Paw Sox in the top of the ninth. With a runner on second,…

    With camp about to break, the Buffalo Bills begin the task of dwindling their roster down to 53 players. The team has a very different look from last season to today. Depth can be found at almost every position. Competition can also be found almost everywhere. Remember this is roster, not a depth chart—the names are in no particular order.

    You’re not officially a Royal until Salvador Perez poors something on you. Well, welcome to the team, Ben Zobrist. Before Yordano Ventura had a chance to take the mound, Zobrist hammered one to give the Royals a 1-0 lead.   For three innings, it looked like the final would be 1-0, and Yordano Ventura would get his sixth win of the year. Part of that is true. Ventura did get his sixth win of the year, but 1-0 was far from what the final score would read. Ventura’s final line was not too impressive, as he went seven innings, allowed five earned runs, and struck out two with as…

    With Johnny Cueto on the hill, the gameplan for the Royals was simple: get through six innings with a lead. It always is. On Friday night, it took an unusual and unfortunate turn from the norm. Kansas City blew two separate three-run leads en route to dropping Friday night's game in Toronto, 7-6. Josh Donaldson's walk-off single was the deciding at bat, ruining "Cueto Day" for all Royals fans. The Johnny Cueto era began with, like last night, an offensive outburst in the first inning. With two outs, Lorenzo Cain ripped a double, Eric Hosmer walked, and Kendrys Morales…

    With the addition of Johnny Cueto, the Royals rotation is all but set.  The only question remaining is who will be in the 5th spot. The Royals rotation has been a thing of worry for fans this season.  Despite being holders of the best record in the American League and a 9 game lead in the Central, the rotation had been, well, less than ideal for Royals fans.  Yordano Ventura, the team’s opening day starter, struggled so bad that he was sent (briefly) to Omaha, though, he did outduel Houston ace, Dallas Kuechel, on Sunday.  Duffy struggled early on, but, has found his…

The Royals actually got on the board first, jumping on Toronto’s starter Marco Estrada for two runs in the 1st inning. Kendrys Morales ripped a double into the gap to score Lorenzo Cain and Eric Hosmer, and KC had the early momentum. But then the Blue Jays, enthused by recent acquisitions of both Troy Tulowitzki and David Price, stepped up to the plate. They scored one in the 1st off of Danny Duffy (4-5, 4.28 ERA) to…

    Who Is The Inventor Of Tiki-Taka?   Tiki-taka is the most successful football tactic of the last decade. But few people know who is the real inventor of tike-taka. Most people assume that Pep Guardioala invented the tiki-taka, but this is completely false because Guardiola’s Barcelona perfected a tactic that has been known since late 1960s. The real inventor of tiki-taka is the late Romanian head-coach Angelo Niculescu. If you really don’t believe me, you can check UEFA’s acknowledgement regarding Niculescu’s contribution to the development of football. The…

    Jason Whitney PHOTO CREDIT: Charles Wenzelberg The New York Yankees lost out on the big pitching names that were out there to be had at the MLB trade deadline. But “lost out” might not necessarily be the case when history re-evaluates this scenario in a few years. While the old Yankees certainly would have traded their crown jewels of their farm system in favor for immediate veteran help at the deadline, the “new” Yanks brass decided to hold on to their top-level prospects. And one of those prospects, Luis Severino, will be counted on to contribute immediately. After…

    Jason Whitney NBA big men and legends Hakeem “The Dream” Olajuwon and Dikembi Mutombo made a brief comeback to help promote the NBA in Africa. The Association held an exhibition game and two of Africa’s biggest NBA names ever laced them up to give the crowd some extra juice. Olajuwon looks like he could still go out there and score a few buckets despite being 52 years-old. Mutombo looked solid too for being 49 years-old. But he may have been 49 years-old when he entered the league as his age has long been questioned. At any rate, check out the video of these two guys! WATCH:…

However, back in the early 2000s, Michael Sweetney, was looked at as a solid prospect out of Georgetown. Unfortunately, Sweetney couldn’t lay off the sweets and never panned out after battling weight issues. Isiah Thomas would eventually take over as president and he would send Sweetney packing for Chicago where he would play for the Bulls for a couple of seasons before virtually never being heard…

Instead of sitting back and dwelling on it, the Seahawks got to work. They made quite a few moves during the offseason, but the big one was the trade for tight end Jimmy Graham.

    Beating the Green Bay Packers on the field is top priority for the Chicago Bears moving forward, but nobody ever said there was something wrong with sticking it them on social media either.  Few have taken up that quest with greater zeal and success than Pro Bowl right guard Kyle Long. For months Cheeseheads everywhere have tried to dish out any sort of insult they can think of at the 26-year old in hopes of getting a reaction.  The problem is Long is much smarter than they give him credit for, almost always have a particularly stinging remark cocked and loaded for reply.

    Everything was just so serious in 2014 for the Chicago Bears.  It started in training camp with that memorable scuffle between Kyle Fuller and Martellus Bennett and never really settled after that.  Things were never much fun for the players or coaches, even when they were winning.  Was it the burden of expectations or a poor job of leadership on the part of head coach Marc Trestman?  Maybe a little of both. Either way it’s clear that both quarterback Jay Cutler and new head coach John Fox approached the 2015 training camp with a primary goal in mind:  work hard, but find ways to…

Remember Dayán Viciedo? The Cuban outfielder was released by the White Sox on February 4 and then was picked up by the Toronto Blue Jays. He would have earned $2.5 million if he made the 25-man roster,however Viciedo requested and was granted his release on March 31.

And while the player was given a £40,000 fine after he committed the same offence a year previously, England coach Gary Neville has since praised Wilshere for showing “passion”. In fact the ex-Manchester United defender believes Wilshere’s rendition of “What do we think of Spurs? S**t. What do we think of S**t? Spurs” is one of the best things he’s seen in the past five…

Hislop, 46, formerly a goalkeeper at West Ham and Portsmouth, was quick to turn the conversation to the transfer saga surrounding the Czech Republic keeper. Hislop – who also enjoyed a spell in the MLS – questioned how Mourinho could allow a club legend like Cech to join one of their biggest rivals after more than 10 years at Stamford Bridge.

By Bryan Pol Despite the busiest MLB trading deadline in recent memory, the NFL has managed to grab serious headlines. First, the NFL upheld Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for his ties to Deflategate.  Brady plans to fight the suspension in court, leading to an inevitable media frenzy sure to encroach upon the regular season despite the fact the story should have died six months ago. Secondly, there were the New York Jets, whose fan base…

  • Hamburg Open: Nadal to face Fognini in the final

    Boyan Vasilev
    1 Aug 2015 | 9:56 am
    Tennis Updates: Rafa Nadal made light work of Italian Andreas Seppi to reach the final of the Hamburg Open on Saturday and will now face Fabio Fognini, who is chasing an almost unthinkable third claycourt victory over the Spaniard this season. Nadal, a 14-times grand slam champion, has endured a difficult year, surrendering his French Open title, suffering a shock defeat by journeyman Dustin Brown at Wimbledon and dropping to number 10 in the rankings. He has struggled since being sidelined by injury and illness last year and has only two relatively modest titles to his name in 2015 —…

    Tennis Updates: Two-time defending champion John Isner ran his Atlanta Open winning streak to 10 matches Friday, riding his big serve to a 7-6 (4), 6-4 victory over Ricardis Berankis. The top-seeded Isner had 19 aces less than 24 hours after ripping off 33 in a two-set victory over Radek Stepanek. Isner will face training partner Denis Kudla Saturday in his 34th ATP Tour semifinal. Kudla, a qualifier, beat Dudi Sela 7-5, 6-0 to reach his first ATP semifinal.

    Soccer News and Rumors: A lot of transfers have been this summer, but there are still a lot of star players that could be one the move. One of these stars is Angel Di Maria, the fast-paced Argentinian winger that just couldn’t find his place in Manchester United last season. According to the latest reports, Paris Saint-Germain’s management has been able to secure a deal with the Red Devils and soon Di Maria will be transferred to the French side. If the reports are true, PSG has agreed to pay a fee of £44.2 million to United in order to have the ex-Real Madrid player. This means that Di…
  • Mardy Fish losing against Dudi Sela

    30 Jul 2015 | 1:55 am
    Tennis Updates: On the 28th of July Mardy Fish faced Dudi Sela in the first round of the Atlanta Open. This was Fish’s 2nd match in the past 24 months and the first for the summer. Currently ranked outside of the top 1000, Fish did not succeed in winning the match and Sela needed 1 hour and 49 minutes to beat him – 6 – 4, 6 – 4. The box score says Fish managed to serve 5 aces and 3 double faults, was broken 3 times, and only converted one of his 8 break points. However, this match was about so much more than statistics. Most of all, this match was about a husband and father on 33…

Pospisil, the No. 2 seed from Canada, beat Taiwan’s Lu 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-4. The match ended on Lu’s second double-fault of the match. The temperature was 95 degrees, with a heat index of 101. Pospisil looked unsteady on his feet after losing the second-set tiebreaker. He left the court following the set, prompting speculation he might be unable to finish the match. ”It was in my mind, but it’s not like me,” Pospisil said about the possibility…

    Yesterday the big news was that NFL upheld its decision to suspend New England Patriots quarterback for four games after a lengthy and costly investigative process.  Today it’s the war of words waged on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell from Patriots owner, Robert Kraft. Kraft ripped the NFL on Wednesday for upholding Tom Brady’s four-game suspension, calling it “unfathomable” and saying, “I was wrong to put my faith in the league,” Kraft said, saying that he felt it would help exonerate Brady he doing so.  He further expressed disappointment in the…

So Adrian Peterson got a second chance.  Where’s Ray Rice’s?  The co-founders of the anti-domestic abuse webite A Call To Men, Tony Porter and Ted Bunch, each of whom has worked with Rice since last November, believe that Rice deserves an opportunity to be an NFL running back again.  According to Bunch, “He’s held himself accountable.  He is saying everything that you would want him to say and doing everything that you would want him…

    Quite often, when I stumble across an historical event, I wonder what would be different in the world if that event never happened. For example: In World War I, Japan was an ally of England, France and the United States. Yet during the Versailles Treaty that ended the war, the Japanese were, in essence, snubbed and failed to gain anything close to the “spoils of war”. Had they been treated as an equal partner in this treaty, would they have still gone on their imperialistic march which led to the involvement of the United States in World War II? Obviously, it is impossible to re-write…

    Call it Half-Back, call it Wide Receiver… Braxton Miller has made the decision to play out of the Backfield for The Ohio State Buckeyes and not just at QB. In a move just reported hours ago, Braxton has made a great and dangerous team even better. Miller can take a handoff or pitch or go out and catch passes, even return punts…  Miller claims he’ll still be playing some quarterback, too, but that remains to be determined. One thing for certain… he can still run. This makes perfect sense and also makes a decision for Coach Meyer that must have been creating some havoc…

Though he was traded, Revis then managed to swing a monster deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers worth $96 million over 6 years after passing a battery…

    There are four kinds of coaching experiences. Unfortunately most of us end up with the bad kind. The four flavors     The place we dream of being is that coveted upper-right hand corner. That is where things are positive and you’ve been constructive. That’s where you want to be — but that’s not where most coaches end up.

Yelling little tips to me (“Yo, Coach, call a time out!”) that were, well, her way of being helpful. After the game I thanked her for her enthusiasm, and she blushed, “Well, I do get carried away sometimes.” I left it at that, knowing her screaming wasn’t meant in a bad way. However, there are parents who cross the line — they go demeaning. Negative. Their screams are hurtful. And disruptive. Human voices elevate for one…

At the present time Australia are looking to replace previous mainstay in Brad Haddin and Peter Nevill is the first keeper to get a run at the spot. But at 29 Nevill is more than halfway through his career, wouldn’t Australia be better served by selecting a younger up and coming keeper?

  • Dealing with the Press for Pole Dancers

    Pippi Parnasse
    30 Jul 2015 | 4:29 pm
    As pole fitness becomes more popular/notorious, some community members may find themselves the subject of articles, interviews, and TV spots. Usually it’s competition winners and studio owners who will be the focus of media attention, but you never know when a reporter could approach you. There are generally two kinds of interviews you will be facing as a representative of a niche industry like pole: specialty publications, such as the Bad Kitty Blog, and general media, which could be anything from your hometown paper to CNN. In specialty publications, the readers (and the interviewer) will…
  • Making A Living in the Pole Dance Industry

    28 Jul 2015 | 12:07 pm
    For as long as I can remember I have been on a quest to find a career I was passionate about that could also provide me with a sustainable income. In college I undertook four separate internships. None of them lit my fire. Upon graduating I accepted a position in network news. It was a prestigious and promising career path, yet it left me feeling unfulfilled. Graduating from Montclair State University in 2008 During my time at the network, I discovered pole dancing. I would go to class after working long overnight shifts. I found refuge and solace in the escape. I can recall envying my…
  • How Improve Your Back Flexibility in 5 simple steps

    Ermelinda Maglione
    24 Jul 2015 | 2:33 pm
    Recently, I asked a few of my pole dancer friends what their flexibility goals were and almost all of them responded: Arches! Improved arch flexibility is my pole wish too and I constantly wonder: why wasn’t I born with a contortionist’s body? I have good flexibility in my legs, my splits are perfect, but my back seems to be made of stone. So, last year I decided that I was going to work on my arch. My goal is to someday be able to do the needle split, even if it takes me decades to achieve it. Bad Kitty® Brand Ambassador Amy Hazel in a Needle Bad Kitty® Brand Ambassador Amy Hazel I…
  • Being an “Indie” Poler

    Pippi Parnasse
    22 Jul 2015 | 11:53 am
            “Where do you train?” That’s one of the first questions that polers ask each other when they are introduced, and for many of us it’s not an easy one to answer. I guess most people in my situation describe themselves as “self-taught,” but I feel that that discredits a lot of people who helped me along the way. I learned from friends. I learned from aerial acrobatics instructors. I learned from my dance and Alexander Technique teachers in college. I learn from other instructors who give me pointers at pole jams. I learn from the classes I drop in on. I…

    Pole-preneur hard at work on what was supposed to be vacation on a cruise ship—NOPE. It seems like every time you turn on the Facebook, someone else is quitting their day job and launching their full time career in the pole world. Some have won competitions, catapulting their first worldwide workshop tour, while others are creating interesting niche products and services for the ever-growing pole community, like Pole Buff and Pole Poised. You can even make a living by managing pole stars like Poles on Tour. I’m an entrepreneur. I joined my first business as an intern at 17 years old and…

  • Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets, 8/2 – Prediction with Odds

    1 Aug 2015 | 2:13 pm
    The Washington Nationals and New York Mets will finish off their NL East battle on Sunday at Citi Field. New York is currently 2.0 games back of the Nationals for the NL West division lead and 3.5 games back of the final Wild Card spot in the National League. The team added an impact bat in the waning moments of Friday’s non-waiver trade deadline, acquiring Yoenis Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers in an effort to catapult the team into postseason contention. New York wills end rookie right-hander Noah Syndergaard to the mound on Sunday, while the Nationals are expected to counter with…
  • Colorado Rockies vs. St. Louis Cardinals, 8/2 – Preview with Odds and Prediction

    1 Aug 2015 | 2:10 pm
    The Colorado Rockies will finish off their four-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium on Sunday. St. Louis, already the MLB’s best team, made some moves to bolster their roster as they prepare for another deep postseason run. Matt Holiday’s injury left the Cards no choice but to add another bat. The Cards brought in Indians’ outfielder Brandon Moss, who gives St. Louis a short-term fill in for Holiday and a platoon-guy at first base if Holiday does return at some point this season. St. Louis will send Jaime Garcia to the mound on Sunday night. Garcia will be…
  • Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers, 8/2 – Castro Relieved To Stay With Cubs

    1 Aug 2015 | 1:49 pm
    The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers will finish off their weekend series at Miller Park on Sunday night. The two NL Central-rivals will have different barometers of success down the stretch in 2015. Milwaukee took a step forward by acquiring a number of talented prospects to keep the Brewers competitive for years to come. Chicago came away with Dan Haren at the trade deadline. The Marlins’ pitcher came relatively cheap and should be an improvement to the other back-end starters the Cubs have been trotting to the mound this season. Chicago fell out of the final Wild Card spot in the…
  • Seattle Mariners vs. Minnesota Twins, 8/2 – Preview with Prediction

    1 Aug 2015 | 1:47 pm
    The Seattle Mariners and Minnesota Twins will finish off their weekend series at Target Field on Sunday. The Twins are losing their grip on the final AL Wild Card spot. Minnesota decided not to make any moves at the trade deadline, and now own just a single-game lead over the Blue Jays and Orioles, both of whom made multiple acquisitions in preparation for a postseason run. Minnesota will send Mike Pelfrey to the mound on Sunday night, while Seattle is expected to counter with right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma. Iwakuma is having an up-and-down injury-riddled season in Seattle this year. He is…
  • New York Yankees vs. Chicago White Sox, 8/2 – Pick and Prediction

    1 Aug 2015 | 1:44 pm
    The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox will finish off their weekend series at US Cellular Field on Sunday afternoon. Chicago followed their seven-game win streak with a two-game losing streak by dropping their first game against the Yankees on Friday. Chicago held tight at the trade deadline, opting to hold onto right-hander Jeff Samardzija, yet not aggressively shopping for an additional bat with the postseason just over two months away. Samardzija will take the mound on Sunday for Chicago. The Yankees are expected to counter with right-hander Ivan Nova. The post New York Yankees vs.

For Arsene Wenger, it is another crack at his dismal record against his nemesis Jose Mourinho, the Frenchman has failed to win any of his 13 previous encounters against the Portuguese. However, the FA Cup holders will take confidence from their impressive pre-season as they take on the Premier League’s defending champions who…

    It has been a season where strikers have been hard to get for the Premier League clubs and only Liverpool and Chelsea have been the two clubs who have made deals for some quality strikers. However, today we compare the two strikers which have made some different impressions for their club, Alvaro Negredo and Oliver Giroud, the reason being a rumour about Wenger wanting Negredo at the Emirates. While Negredo had a decent first season at Manchester City, he was loaned out to Spanish giants Valencia last season and the following year he made his move to the Mestalla side permanent.

If you fell in love with hoops culture back then, as most NBA and NBL fans did, then you could be forgiven for believing that Converse was as fundamental to the modern game as Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Because they were.It took decades of favourable endorsement to reach such lofty heights though, because let's face it, it's rare for any brand to…

    Would you rather flip a coin or give Dwight Howard the chance to make one free throw to decide if you die? You would be crazy to give Dwight Howard your life fate over a coin flip. Some basketball players aren’t meant for making free throws. Just like some baseball players aren’t met to pitch. Intentionally fouling Dwight Howard so he has to shoot free throws is like a baseball team deciding which player they want to pitch to. In that case they would pick the pitcher who NEVER works on batting. NBA teams can pick on the players that NEVER practice free throws. I’m sure there…
