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

Several reports said that the inspections had their origins in allegations made in the “concussion lawsuit” regarding improprieties with these substances under the Controlled Substances Act. The Niners, Seahawks and Bucs confirmed that they underwent some kind of inspection; this report in the Washington Post indicates that the focus is not merely on those teams. I…

    17 Nov 2014 | 7:36 am
    Last week in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies, Kobe Bryant set an all-time NBA record. Until last week, John Havlicek held the record for the most missed field goal attempts in a career at 13,417. In that game last week, Kobe missed attempt 13,418 and he continues to add to the record. Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times had a perfect perspective on that record as it relates to Kobe and the Lakers: “Kobe Bryant broke an unwelcome NBA career record with his 13,418th missed shot. “Or as he prefers to call them, rebounding opportunities for teammates.” The Lakers’ roster as of today is…

  • Fantasy: Patriots RB situation is a Gray Area

    Michael Beaudwin
    22 Nov 2014 | 3:55 pm
    “A Gray area”, Other than a delightful play on words, its the very definition for the New England Patriots’ running back situation. Or for any Patriots player not named Tom Brady when it comes to fantasy, really. During the long reign of Bill Belichick, there really haven’t been consistent fantasy “locks” on the team. Besides a select few, that is. Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady may be the only names on the list. Recently, Jonas Gray made a big splash in New England’s backfield rotation. Which caused a lot of you to scramble to your phones, tablets, or…
  • Disappointment, decades of it

    21 Nov 2014 | 8:17 am
    The life of a fan of a team in the National Football League can be a Jekyll and Hyde experience. In just the 17 weeks of a NFL season you can experience an array of emotions. As a true fan, or fanatic, you will often feel the same as the coaches and players. However, being a fan of the Washington Redskins means being one thing, decades of disappointment. It all started for me in the fall of ’88. I was a young boy growing up, in what was then, a small Colorado town. Growing up in a state that already had a football team, everyone thought I should plant my roots there. But I wanted a team…

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

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

    It’s not normal for a member of the opposing team to be excited to meet a man who’s about to lead a team against you, but that’s the case of Devon Still and Sean Payton. The story of Cincinnati Bengals’ Devon Still and his 4-year-old daughter Leah who’s battling cancer is well documented throughout the 2014 NFL season. It’s a touching story that makes us remember there’s more than just a brutal game between two teams, a victor and an eventual champion. The champion instead is Leah Still who is undergoing radiation to, hopefully, eradicate the…

    Jason Lisk
    23 Nov 2014 | 9:21 am
    Julius Thomas is a game-time decision, but both Jason La Canfora and Tracy Wolfson said that they think that it is likely he will sit. Unfortunately, Denver plays later and the official report hasn’t been released, and you will likely have to sit him unless you have an option in a later game. I don’t list him in my rankings, but he would be 4th if he plays. If your league allows subs, you can either (a) have Jacob Tamme to swap, (b) pick up Niles Paul, with Jordan Reed out, who is likely available and playing in the late window, or c) if you have the luxury, start one of the tight…

The goal put Palace ahead 3-1, the eventual final scoreline at soggy Selhurst Park. Liverpool led the match 1-0 after barely 90 seconds thanks to Rickie Lambert, but it all went downhill from there for Brendan Rodgers club which hasn’t won in the league since Oct. 19, dropping to 12th place in the process.

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

True, some of these losses were close, and some were in games where Clemson was not favored. But then there's the dispiriting loss to Georgia this year. Or the demolition by Florida State last year. Or the Orange Bowl that gave birth to a gloating billboard. This year, the Gators will have finished the year having played three teams that were ranked heading into the game.

  • The Park Is Open: Check Out The Teaser For The ‘Jurassic World’ Trailer

    Andrew Roberts
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:39 am
    Universal just dropped the teaser for the Jurassic World teaser trailer that will hit on Black Friday and it looks great. Chris Pratt looks stone faced, Bryce Dallas Howard looks worried, and everyone has a nice plastic tour bubble that won’t factor into any scary sequences at all. I’m sure of it. Also we got running dinosaurs! That’s always a plus: Universal I don’t know how I feel about the whole trailer for the trailer crap that seems to be prevalent these days, but at least this is more than just scenes from the old movies cut together. Check back on Friday for the…
  • Watch These Announcers Completely Lose It As This Football Fan Sings Into A Fake Goose

    23 Nov 2014 | 8:30 am
    Let thee who hasn’t sung “Don’t Stop Believin” into a fake animal cast the first inanimate object. During Saturday’s Miami-Virgina game, a fan went to town on his fake goose, blasting away lyrics to Journey’s hit song. The priceless moment was too much for the announcers who broke down laughing for several minutes. Let this be a lesson to all those in attendance at sporting events. Every step you take, every move you make, every time you sing into a fake goose, the cameras are watching you. [Video via The Big Lead]

    This Rockville man, identified only as “Carlos” to the local ABC 7 affiliates, couldn’t be calmer as he admits to setting a home on fire. The man had his reasons, of course, and laid them out through a series of questions with the reporter on the scene. From WJLA: Question #1: “How did you do it?” “I just poured gasoline on the floor, set it on fire, went to grab a drink, and came back,” “Carlos” remarked without batting an eye. Question #2: “How did setting this fire help you?” “Just so you [the media] could get here ……

  • This Is The Only Mashup Of ‘Jurassic Park’ And ‘Ace Ventura’ That You’ll Ever Need

    Andrew Roberts

    This mashup of Jurassic Park and Ace Ventura has been floating around the Internet since April, but it seems like everyone picked up on it this weekend. Typical, right? It doesn’t matter how old it is, though, because it is is new to me and it is awesome. Now the partner clip is from Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, the divisive sequel to the Dan Marino starring original, so that might dampen some moods. That said, the chosen clip is perfect. Expected, but perfect. I might put it high upon my list of Jurassic Park parodies, but not too high. There’s still this gem. (Via…

  • The New York Times Has An Ode To Aaron Rodgers’ Soulful Voice

    Christmas Ape
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:20 am
    PS Aaron Rodgers is currently the best quarterback in the NFL because of his amazing accuracy and arm strength. But the reason The New York Times presupposes is, maybe it’s his voice? Just as valuable an asset as his arm strength, mobility and microprocessor of a brain is Rodgers’s voice, loaded with bass and thump and a tinge of soul. With it, he has coaxed eight neutral-zone infractions this season — including three in the first 21 minutes against Carolina last month — by using rhythm and inflection to exploit defenders’ aggressiveness, a tactic known as a hard count. I enjoy…

    Via r/NFL The bright side of not having an undefeated or winless team is that we get to take comfort in the fact that NFL parity means a circle of teams eating itself. That circle was completed Thursday night with the Raiders getting their first victory of the season. I’ll try to ignore that the Bucs win is over the Steelers, but I suppose it could have just as easily been the Jets. This week was dominated by the big snowkkake in Buffalo. This was partially because there was a period of uncertainty about where and when the Jets-Bills game would take place. It’s also because the…
  • Bills Accidentally Give Out Domestic Violence Number For Ticket Refunds

    The most Bills week ever continues. Earlier this week, the Bills paid fans to shovel out their stadium for a game that would ultimately be moved to Detroit. Ok, these things happen. So, after they announced that game would be moved, thousands of people who bought tickets were looking for a refund. Naturally, the Bills gave out a number for fans seeking refunds on their website. There’s just one problem: it directed people to a domestic violence crisis center in Ohio. With C.J. Spiller out for the entire year, and Fred Jackson missing two of the last three games, we can only hope that…

    It's Week 12 across the NFL, and the playoff picture is beginning to take shape. Of course, it isn't exactly the picture we expected, but in the NFL it rarely is. With so many teams fighting for their playoff lives, there is no shortage of subplots this week. Can the Seattle Seahawks stay in the NFC West race with a win over the surging Arizona Cardinals or will the Redbirds stick a fork in Seattle's title defense hopes? Can the Detroit Lions right the ship on the road after last week's loss in the desert or will the New England Patriots down yet another division leader? How will Cleveland…

    The Detroit Lions complete a tough two-game road trip when they take on the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium at 1 p.m. ET. Detroit's (7-3) tough loss against Arizona drops them into a tie with the Green Bay Packers for the NFC North. The Patriots (8-2) haven't lost since September and have a Super Bowl-or-Bust look to them. The Lions defense will have its hands full trying to slow down quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski. The offense needs to give them a larger margin for error, as it's only put up 20 points or more in half of Detroit's games. Tune in to Fox to catch…

Today's game is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. ET from Soldier Field, and it will be aired on Fox.

  • Indians Designate Scott Barnes For Assignment

    Zach Links
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:05 am
    The Indians have designated left-hander Scott Barnes for assignment, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer (on Twitter).  The move will help the Tribe create room for right-hander Charles Brewer, who was acquired from Arizona last night. Barnes, 27, has made 22 big league appearances for the Indians over the last two seasons, though he has spent more time pitching for their Triple-A affiliate.  This past season, Barnes pitched to a 3.69 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9 in 24 relief appearances and one start. As the MLBTR DFA Tracker shows, there are now 16 players in DFA limbo.

    The Indians have acquired right-handed pitcher Charles Brewer from the Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations, tweets Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. Brewer was designated for assignment on Thursday. It’s the second trade of the evening for Arizona – they also dealt Mike Bolsinger to the Dodgers for cash considerations.

So clearly not all support for legalization is coming from users. An…

Steph Gilmore, Tyler Wright and Sally Fitzgibbons are all in the running for the world title and its a very close race with a lot of potential scenarios and outcomes. I am hoping that Sally Fitzgibbons can finish the 2014 season with a strong result and win her first title on the WCT. Whatever the outcome might be, I think the 2014 Target Maui Pro will be an exciting event that will see a record number of attendees and online viewers due to…

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

While we’re getting settled in for the puck drops this afternoon, let’s check out some of the notable players out there in the headlines. Here’s the latest. Jonathan Bernier, G, Toronto Maple Leafs: The Leafs got a very big and important win over the Red Wings last night, and they did it in front of their home fans. Bernier was solid in the 4-1 win, allowing just one score on 27 shots. Tyler Bozak took care of the offense, posting two goals on two shots. The victory brings…

While we’re waiting on game time, let’s check out some of the notable players out there who are making headlines. Heat-Magic: Chris Bosh was on his game last night against the Magic. He scored 32 points--14 of those coming in the fourth quarter--en route to a 99-92 victory over intrastate rival Orlando. It was the 10th straight victory for the Heat over the Magic.

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

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

    Ryan Griffiths
    18 Nov 2014 | 9:00 am
    Injuries are part of playing sports, but sometimes we wonder if sports injuries have to be so devastating. Players bank on their health for a paycheck and, at the same time, they have to entertain demanding fans. If they don’t perform, they won’t be around for long. Some think that some sports, like football, need an overhaul because of the severity of injuries when they do occur. Should national leagues be paying more attention to these injuries? And, what can be done, if anything, to minimize or eliminate them? Here are just a few examples of devastating sports injuries and what could…
  • Lacrosse Is The Fastest Growing Sport In America?

    Jennifer Smith
    13 Nov 2014 | 9:15 am
    While almost every American is aware of the popularity of the NFL, NCAA, NBA, MLB and NHL; most would be stumped if asked which is the fastest growing team sport. If someone were to hazard a guess, they would most likely be wrong, because the fastest growing sport is none of these. It’s lacrosse. Fastest Growing Sport According to an annual report by US Lacrosse,“A record total of 746,859 players competed on organized lacrosse teams in 2013. The growth rate from last year (722,205) was 3.4 percent and youth participation topped 400,000 for the first time ever.” Two Reasons for The…

    If you have a line of sports merchandise or gear that you’d like to promote and sell to athletes and fans alike, then you may just want to build an eCommerce business. It’s much cheaper to start than opening up a store because of low overheads, and it’s easier to manage because of software automation. Additionally, making money online may be as profitable or more profitable than a small store because of the Internet’s national and global reach.

  • Gender Equality in Sports – Is It Coming?

    Keith McFarland
    4 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Beyond gender, what difference exists between male and female sporting events? I’m a sports fan. I love watching a good contest. Both genders play team ball, need good coaching, and want fan support. Winning championships is the goal, regardless of sport or player. Either sex can have good and bad games. Each, as individuals or teams, must overcome adversities. Who is better is best debated among fans and pundits. For my thinking, the two are really complementary, having much in common. And when assessing today’s society, I’m surprised we’re not seeing more collaboration, especially…

    Chris Lauderback
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:48 am
    Ohio State clinched a third-straight B1G East division title and a spot in the conference championship game despite committing three turnovers and surrendering 228 rushing yards to Tevin Coleman in a 42-27 win over Indiana on a damp afternoon in the Shoe.  The Buckeyes actually trailed the Hoosiers 20-14 midway through the 3rd quarter but were rescued by redshirt freshman Jalin Marshall's four straight touchdowns via a punt return, two jet sweeps and a nifty one-handed grab of a J.T. Barrett throw. Marshall's incredible performance was the perfect story line after he committed two costly…

  • Quotebook: After Rallying Past Indiana, Ohio State Turns Page to Michigan

    Patrick Maks
    23 Nov 2014 | 7:05 am
    In a game that was far closer than most people expected, Ohio State rallied past Indiana late and clinched a return to the Big Ten Championship Game Saturday afternoon. After trailing midway through through the third quarter, the sixth-ranked and heavily-favored Buckeyes scored 28 unanswered points and broke the game open in the final five minutes of play. There would be no upset in Columbus. Yet since the contest was marred with three turnovers, defensive lapses, and general sloppiness at times, it’s hard to imagine Urban Meyer’s team earned any style points with the win. Meyer offered…

    The Buckeyes returned home after two straight road games and three trips out of Columbus in four weeks. It must have been nice to finally play at home, but a nooner against Indiana probably wasn’t the best situation for Urban Meyer, who wanted his charges to play angry and hungry as the regular season winds down (and how depressing is that phrase?). The Hoosiers entered the game winless in the Big Ten and assured of not going to a bowl game. But the team boasts one of the country’s best running backs in Tevin Coleman, who had to be feeling pretty good after seeing Jeremy Langford and…

  • The Superstars Who Don't Play

    22 Nov 2014 | 9:15 pm
    Football is always about the warriors, the guys who go out and fight. But even they may not be the most important part of a team. We regularly watch teams that seem to have overwhelming talent go nowhere. Sometimes they become jokes. In baseball it's been called a 'country club', among other things. Football has no such catchy phrase, but clearly we've regularly seen the same thing happen. We've also seen plenty of seemingly unglamorous teams rise to the top. A few even have stayed there. The guys off the field are the cause of both syndromes. They themselves are unglamorous for the most…

It appears this will be a regular plan with the two players as the season progresses. As for the on court actions of the Celtics, it was a hit and miss kind of week.

It seems to have brought us together."--Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers, in an interview prior to last season (October 2013).And the adversity just keeps coming.  Many people have predicted another losing season for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have lost the first five games of the 2014-2015 NBA season.

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

  • Setting Triathlon Goals – Racing Happy

    19 Jul 2014 | 10:14 am
    At the beginning of each triathlon season, most triathletes sit down and plan their races based on their goals. Some goals are event based – “I want to qualify for X championship race.” Some goals are time/distance based – “I want to do a sub 5 hour 70.3.” Others are competition based – “I want to finish on the podium, or at least beat my brother who won’t quit bragging about the last race where he bested me.” While I’ve built previous seasons around each of those different types of goals, this year is different for me. This year my goals are “happiness…
  • Introducing #TrainerBingo

    15 Jan 2014 | 4:17 pm
    Now is the time of year that triathletes come out of their off season hibernation, focus on building their foundation for race season and try to shed a few lbs from all the Christmas cookies that they ate. In the northern part of the country, that also means lots of runs on snowy trails, masters swimming sessions and most importantly, long boring sessions on the trainer. Which leads me to the point of this post: What is the point of being  a nerdy, triathlon-obsessed social media geek if you can’t make fun of yourself? What do many triathletes do on the trainer?

  • My One Regret About My 2013 Triathlon Season

    1 Dec 2013 | 6:45 pm
    My “comeback” to triathlon this year was emotional and I am grateful for being able to toe the line, but there was one thing that I wish I could have changed. My one race wasn’t with my my Rev3 family. Go ahead and ignore everything I’m about to say if you want because Rev3 sponsors me and I’ve never had to pay to do any of their races, but know this. My triathlon team was the third group of people that I made sure knew about my accident right after my own family and close group of friends. They are legit “family” in my books. I don’t know of any other triathlon teams have…

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

Earlier this year, Darren Rovell reported that Seattle only pays $5,000 per year for this, but they cannot use the term on merchandise (even though, as also reported by Mr. Rovell, the Seahawks #12 “Fan” jersey was a top-10 best selling jersey back in March of this year).

Despite getting a slight advantage from white pieces in the Russian variation of Grunfeld defence, he didn’t stretch the position enough to induce mistakes from Magnus Carlsen. A 32-move draw in the 10th game, played over just three hours on Friday, ensured that the reigning champion retained his one-point lead with just two games remaining in the World Chess Championship match in Sochi.

    When a sportsman or woman is suffering from an ailment or experiencing physical body injury, he or she has the option of either seeking medical treatments or to try and treat the condition on their own. Often treating the injury by oneself is meant to serve only as a first aid measure before getting specialized attention. The mistake that a number of patients do is that they do not consider getting any further medical attention until when it is almost too late. For them once they carry out the first aid treatments and the pain is gone, they assume that all is well. However after some time the…

According to Cafardo, the player stated that the youngsters should have taken their lead from Dustin Pedroia, who “was said to be distraught over the team’s poor play.” The player is a bit off base.

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

  • Red Sox Bring Back Koji

    Matt O'Donnell
    31 Oct 2014 | 6:54 am
    The Red Sox have signed relief pitcher Koji Uehara to a 2-year $18 million dollar contract.  The Sox had exclusive rights to negotiate with him until Tuesday and were able to work out the deal before other teams got in the mix. Koji went from unhittable during 2013 and part of 2014 to an inconsistent reliever in the second half of 2014.  Most of this can be blamed on a lower back injury that seems to be better now.  Koji was able to have a few good innings at the end of the season which gave the team confidence that he can once again be the dominant pitcher he was in 2013.

    Mario to make way? With the news that Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge would be on ice for at least another six weeks with a recurrence of his long-standing thigh problem, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he’s going to have to shake things up in order to find a winning formula for the Anfield outfit. It’s a startling fact that Liverpool don’t have a striker on the books — the injured Sturridge aside — that has found the net in the league.

The striker, who was pictured at the ECHO Arena last night taking in the Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverley, picked up a groin injury while training with the Italian national team over the recent international break and, it would appear, he’s failed to recover in time.

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

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

    22 Nov 2014 | 7:44 am
    Remember when it appeared as if Robert Griffin III was going to be the savior for the Washington Redskins? Many people – including myself – actually wondered aloud if the Indianapolis Colts would one day regret selecting Andrew Luck instead of RG3 with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft?

Let’s take a look at an overview of what you can expect from a basic Photoshop CS tutorial. First, create a new layer (Layer, New, New Layer). Then, grab your polygonal lasso tool.

    The Blog That Boredom Built

  • Looking At Danny Santana

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

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

    Ricky Rubio can't shoot. I would imagine looking through basketball fans tweets during a Timberwolves game would reveal several tweets complaining about Rubio's shooting ability. And while it is true that Rubio's shooting leaves a lot to be desired, fans as usual focus on the "flashy" part of the game rather than the big picture.When Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown, many fans were convinced that he HAD to be the MVP, because he had won the triple crown for goodness sakes! How could he not win it? It's simple; fans and writers and even "baseball experts" had been valuing the wrong parts of…

    Yesterday was one of the more surprising trade deadlines in recent memory. There were several big trades that saw several roster shakeups, including Jon Lester heading from Boston to Oakland for Yoenis Cespedes. With Oakland acquiring arguably the two best pitchers available over the last month (Jeff Samarzdija being the other), one of their main competitors knew they needed to get involved in the arms race. And get involved the Tigers did.After weeks of David Price trade speculation, with a different "favorite" emerging seemingly daily, the Tigers came basically out of nowhere to land the Cy…

This is what I was thinking after watching the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak come to a humbled end by the competitive ball play of the Chicago Bulls (100-97). While the game and real-life relationships are worlds apart, it’s beneficial to notice the similarities.

  • Utah Utes Football: Tevin Carter Comeback

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

    23 Nov 2014 | 9:25 am
    Marco Reus' year is over. Borussia Dortmund announced that the midfielder has a torn ligament in his right ankle, which will rule him out until 2015. Reus injured his ankle in Dortmund's match against Paderborn on Saturday. The good news is that it is not the same ankle that Reus hurt in the summer and kept him out of the World Cup. That was his left ankle, and this time he hurt his right. "Reus could return to training at the start of 2015 when BVB begin their preparations for the second half of the season," Dortmund said in a statement. After Dortmund plays Werder on December 20, they have…

The Detroit Lions will be without Reggie Bush for another week as he will be inactive against the New England Patriots. He's still dealing with an ankle injury and was very limited in practice all week. This leaves Joique Bell and Theo Riddick with the workload. Bell is coming off a 14 carries for 85 yards performance on the ground. Riddick is assumed to be primarily used on passing plays, but he hasn't done much since Week 8. He had three receptions for 22 yards and two carries for 2 yards in Week 11.

Rooney’s strike added to a comedy own-goal by Kieran Gibbs that saw the left-back deflect Antonio Valencia’s cross into his own net after a mix-up with goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, who was injured in the process. Olivier Giroud,…
  • On-song Costa keeps Chelsea cruising

    22 Nov 2014 | 9:36 am
    LONDON, November 21- Diego Costa struck his 11th goal in 10 Premier League games as leaders Chelsea cruised to a comfortable 2-0 home win over 10-man West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. Costa put the hosts on course for victory in the 11th minute and Eden Hazard added a second in the 25th minute, shortly before Claudio Yacob was dismissed for an ugly, two-footed lunge on Costa. The one-sided win extended Jose Mourinho’s side’s lead at the head of the table to seven points, 48 hours before second-place Southampton travel to Aston Villa. And the manner of victory only reinforced the…

    The Chicago Bears host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday which also means the return of former head coach Lovie Smith. The former Bears coach is in the midst of rebuilding the Buccaneers, but still has a lot of respect for the Bears organization who he led to the Super Bowl back in 2006. Linebacker Lance Briggs was part of that team and knows how important Smith was to the organization. Briggs made it clear that Smith should be remembered as one of the great coaches in Chicago. “Lovie should be remembered as one of the great coaches in Chicago,” Briggs said during his…

    Wednesday was the ten-year anniversary of the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers brawl which has been named “The Malice In The Palace”. A lot of things have changed in the NBA after that unforgettable night. The artist formerly known as Metta World Peace was suspended for the entire NBA season for his role in the brawl. World Peace talked about the brawl on his Twitter account and says it was the worst night of his life. He also reminded us that he is friends with the guy who threw the beer at him. 10 years ago was the worst day in my life. Glad to be moved on and working towards…

    Things got very heated during the Phoenix Suns and Detroit Pistons game Wednesday night. After the Suns pulled out the 88-86 victory, the trash talk on the court continued off the court. Suns forward Markieff Morris and Pistons Kentavious Caldwell-Pope exchanged words during the game which led to Morris saying Caldwell-Pope has no heart. Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy was not happy with Morris’s comments and he took some shots of his own at Morris. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope found humor in Phoenix Suns forward Markieff Morris’ verbal blast. Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy…

    Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd’s return to Brooklyn was eventful to say the least. After getting booed by the Brooklyn faithful before the game, Kidd got the last laugh as he Bucks defeated the Nets in triple overtimes. During the final seconds of the 2nd overtime, Kidd started to play mind games with SG Joe Johnson. Kidd knew that  the play was going to be drawn up for Johnson so he decided to let him know that he knows what’s coming. I love that Kidd did this and it shows that he will try to win anyway he can.

    The Philadelphia 76ers have been the butt of everyone’s jokes since the season started. Some people think that the 76ers have already started tanking for the NBA Draft. Tuesday night after Kentucky’s dominating win over Kansas, many people began to wonder if the Wildcats could beat the 76ers. Even Suns guard Eric Bledsoe agreed that Kentucky would knock off the NBA’s worst team. While most 76ers players didn’t want to comment on the issue, Tony Wroten didn’t mind letting everyone know how he felt about Kentucky. “Nah, they can’t beat us,” Wroten replied.

  • 4 Signs That You Are Doing “Team” the Right Way

    18 Nov 2014 | 6:09 am
    There are thousands and thousands of youth sports teams, but how many of them are really doing team the right way? As a sports mom for 21 years, I watched my kids play on over 100 teams, and if I am being honest I will have to say that a lot of them had no clue about how to do team the right way. What makes a good team? As a coach, here are the team characteristics you should be striving to nurture, and as a parent, here’s the kind of team you should be seeking. It won’t happen every season, but when it does, it’s almost magical. Good teams don’t take no for an answer when it comes to…

They hold a special place in pop culture history, and sometimes we wish they could hop out of the TV and give us a pep talk. Unfortunately the closest we can get is flipping on the TV or digging into our Netflix queue.

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

    NFL:Kansas City (7 - 3) 19 @ Oakland (0 - 10) 24:  As I look at the Raiders' schedule, this may be their  best chance to avoid a winless season except perhaps a week 16 game where they host the Bills. The Chiefs face a short week after a really tough game against the Seahawks. It's difficult for me to predict that Oakland can pull the upset, but after my abysmal prognostications last week, I'm throwing caution to the wind and going with the home team on a Thursday night. Teams coming off games with the Seahawks tend to have a difficult time physically recovering, and in this case…

    There were more than a few upsets this week. Fortunately, I maintained a pretty good season record by predicting my share. Arkansas finally broke their record 17 game SEC losing streak. I couldn't get the Arizona teams right, but I got my other two Pac-12 picks correct. My Hokies held on to defeat number 21 Duke, keeping alive their efforts to get to their 22nd consecutive bowl game. And in the big one, Alabama prevailed against Mississippi State, probably securing a spot in this week's top four.My prediction for playoffs remains the same, despite TCU's lackluster performance at Kansas.

On the flip side, eighteen teams had winning records entering the weekend (Buffalo has since lost, falling to 5 - 5). It's now about jockeying for playoff position or trying to secure a first round bye and homefield advantage through the playoffs.Thursday (from an earlier post): Buffalo (5 - 4) 21 @ Miami (5 - 4) 27: The Bills took down the Dolphins in week 2, but this is week 11 and the game is in Miami, where the Fins dismantled the Chargers before losing a close one at Detroit…

    When handicapping football games many handicappers improperly use the betting tools at their disposal. One of the tools that are most commonly misused is betting trends. Most handicappers use betting trends after they have made their selection. Instead of looking over betting trends with the hopes of discovering a winning selection, they use their betting trends to reinforce their selection. This is just one way of misusing a valuable football handicapping asset. Start your search for winners off by looking over the betting trends to identify the difficult spots that a team may be in for the…

This week, we’ll move back to a side and have one of my favorite situations for betting the NFL. The last time we saw the New England Patriots they were busy putting up 42 points and over 500 yards against the Colts on prime time, while earlier in the day the Detroit Lions put forth a lackluster effort in getting beat by the Arizona Cardinals by a 14-6 margin.

    When looking over the schedule for week 12 in the NFL it is easy for football handicappers to get in too deep. They dive into the stats and trends and dig up the most hard to find complicated wagering angles in hopes of finding winners. While this works for many devoted number crunching football fanatics, you have to remember the simple wagering angles that are often taken for granted. One of the most obvious wagering angles that are often taken for granted is home field advantage. The football odds makers adjust the line for the home field edge because it is that important.

      Having a good leg kick is a integral part of your stroke, as it supplies you with stability first and foremost. Start with this simple drill. Walk up and down the pool imagining there is a football on the surface of the water, try and kick the football but when kicking point your toes and feel the pressure of the water on the shin and the tops of your feet. This drill will allow you to feel the water pushing against the leg as it should when you’re kicking. There will not be this much movement during your kick. You can do this next drill with or without a float, we always…

    With just over 24 hours left until the beginning of the Penguins season, lets take a look at some of the stories from this week. “I think I will play.” Those are the words of Evgeni Malkin when speaking to the media about playing in the Season Opener against the Ducks on Thursday. Surely those

  • Washington Redskins: Gruden has the Authority He Needs

    23 Nov 2014 | 8:19 am
    Current starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin, III, has had some problems executing his position to his head coach’s satisfaction. Last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought that into stark relief. RGIII threw interceptions when there was no need to force throws, appeared to feel the protection in the pocket was breaking down when it was not and, as Jay Gruden said to the media on Monday following the game, “he took three-step drops when he should have taken five. He took a one-step drop when he should have taken three…” and so on.

      Ashburn, Va. – By the time today’s post-practice open locker room arrived, the Washington Redskins seemed to have gotten past the events that took place earlier in the week. After suffering an ugly, ugly loss to the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday, quarterback Robert Griffin, III said some things during his post-game press conference about his teammates needing to play better for the team to win (he also criticized himself, however) and his words were badly timed, badly phrased and blown up by some members of the media. His head coach’s subsequent detailed…

    Captain Clutch – Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin registered two points (1g, 1a) on Thursday at Colorado, including the game-winning goal in the third period. Ovechkin (72) now sits one game-winning goal shy of tying Peter Bondra (73) for first place on the Capitals’ game-winning goals list. Ovechkin’s game-winning goal also moved him past Alex Kovalev for fourth place among Russian-born players in career NHL goals.

    20 Nov 2014 | 8:51 am
    Ashburn, Va. – Since arriving in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area as a second overall draft pick in the 2012 draft, Washington Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin, III has taken to social media and the podium microphone like a fish to water. He is a vocal guy that seems to wear his heart on his sleeve. This, along with the fact that he is young and still learning how to be an NFL quarterback on and off the field, has gotten him into trouble. Over time, countless “experts” in and around the sports world have pushed Griffin to stop talking. Whether it’s via Twitter or during…

  • Ohio State Welcomes Skidding Hoosiers on Saturday

    19 Nov 2014 | 4:51 am
    Ohio State (9-1) has had some trouble stopping the power running backs in the Big Ten this year and faces another this weekend in Indiana’s Tevin Coleman. The noon kickoff this weekend in Columbus will be a nice home coming for the Buckeyes that faced Minnesota on the road last Saturday. The Buckeyes will be favored by 30+ points and need a break from a tough couple of games to get healthy and let some younger players get some experience. The Buckeyes aren’t concerned about the yards on the ground that they have given up as they have won those games and have moved up to 6th nationally,…

    When Ohio State lost to Virginia Tech in week two of the season, they fell off the face of the earth for many not watching the program. But after winning 7 straight with a quality win on the road in East Lansing, everyone is now paying attention. This week they travel to Minneapolis to take on the 7-2 Golden Gophers in a game that cannot be overlooked. The Buckeyes, now ranked No 8 nationally, are back in the conversation for the national playoff to end the 2014 season. Minnesota is as high as the Buckeyes coming off their win, beating Iowa 51-14 last weekend. Coach Urban Meyer is working to…

The underdog Buckeye coaches were asked after the Illinois win about plays from last year’s Big Ten Championship game that they still think about. Tom Herman hasn’t thought about the 4th and 2 play call that lost the game for OSU last year, at least not since fall camp began and the coaches put all their focus on this year’s team. He did talk about the challenge that playing Michigan State’s highly regarded defense is for the Buckeyes. He has been busy…

    Du leidest an Verstopfungen und starken Bauchschmerzen? Dann kann eine Darmträgheit vorliegen. Sie ist die Folge eines aus dem Gleichgewicht geratenen Darms. Wenn Dein Arzt die Diagnose “Darmträgheit” trifft, dann verschreibt er vielfach Abführmittel. Diese sorgen für ein einmaliges Absetzen des Kots, eine langfristige Verbesserung wird allerdings nicht erzielt. Die Medikamente verfügen über verschiedene Nebenwirkungen und stellen das Darmgleichgewicht nicht wieder her. Wenn Du die Ursachen nicht bekämpfst, dann werden die Verstopfungen mit der Zeit schlimmer werden.

    21 Nov 2014 | 1:33 pm
    Michigan pulled away from Detroit in the final minutes Thursday night to claim a 72-61 win. Here are Five Key Plays from the Wolverines’ first close game of the year. 1) In-and-out threes highlight poor shooting start The Wolverines shot just 10-of-29 (34.5%) in the first half, and they entered the break down 28-27. The poor performance wasn’t a result of bad opportunities — Michigan had plenty of open looks. Things just weren’t falling. Nowhere was that more apparent than a pair of back-to-back three-point attempts in transition early in the first half. On the first, Walton grabbed a…

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:59 am
    Allison Farrand When Michigan needed a spark against Detroit on Thursday night, it didn’t turn to Kameron Chatman or Aubrey Dawkins, its two most athletic freshmen. The Wolverines didn’t look to Mark Donnal or Ricky Doyle, either. In fact, they didn’t rely on any of the freshmen. Instead, they put the game in the hands of their veterans: the reliable core of Caris LeVert, Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton, the improvisation of Spike Albrecht and the disciplined understanding of Max Bielfeldt. And when the Titans took a four-point lead early in the second half, that group got to work.

Michigan’s freshmen are all promising players, but trailing Detroit early in the second half, John Beilein had no choice. He went with his veterans. Much has been made about the fact that Beilein only has five scholarship players on his roster that aren’t freshmen, but that doesn’t mean he can’t put them all on the floor at once. Spike Albrecht was inserted into the game just 67 seconds into the second half and he…

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

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

After all I’d seen players add weight lifting to their training. Yes, they got stronger, but they got slower too. Slower in running. Slower in pitching. Slow is not a goal in softball training. When I went to college, our strength and conditioning coach had us to “lower weights” and “higher reps” in the weight room. My understanding was that we stayed “light” on the weights since speed was important in…

    Last week was the longest period without running ever since I started to dream about finishing a triathlon. And it felt soo good! I think I’ve fully recovered from Auckland Marathon and I’m ready to give my best in upcoming weeks. In 16 weeks I’m going to swim 3.8km, cycle 180 and run a full marathon in breathtaking Taupo.

It is not unheard of to hear football players suffering from all sorts of head injuries, ranging from concussions to memory loss.

    Thank this guy for Darren Helm On June 16, 1990, the NHL converged upon BC Place Stadium in Vancouver for the NHL Entry Draft. The Red Wings’ Bryan Murray was in his first year as coach and GM and was tasked with improving a team that had posted a 28-38-14 the previous season and finished last in the Norris Division Murray selected Keith Primeau with the third overall selection. The Red Wings had no second-round selection, so Murray’s next pick came in at the top of the third, when he selected Vyacheslav “Slava” Kozlov with the 45th overall pick. Primeau would become…

Most of them said roughly the same thing: “I’ve been a Howard detractor, but he’s been really good this year.” Howard’s goals against average is down to 1.97 from 2.66 and his save percentage has risen 14 points — from .910 to .924 — in comparison to last year. Want to bring analytics into it? Howard had 8.3 Goalie Point Shares for the Red Wings last season. That’s 8.9 percent of Detroit’s 93 points. This year Howard has…

They stood at the podium and in the hallway and spouted off about how they had to be better, how that Cardinals team was good, how the offense needed to score off those two interceptions. Those could be their true emotions. But I imagine when they reconvene on Tuesday there will be a little fear. Let’s get it out of the way: the officiating wasn’t good.

  • What’s wrong with Jimmy Howard in shootouts? The answer is simple; fixing it is much harder

    13 Nov 2014 | 11:41 pm
    So the Red Wings suck in shootouts. Again. Sunday’s loss to the Lightning made the Red Wings 0-3 in shootouts this season. Over the last year plus Detroit is 5-12 in the skills competition. The Red Wings’ shooters’ struggles are nothing new. They’re 1-for-8 this year (12.5 percent) after converting at 21.6 percent last year. The league average is 33.3 percent. But this year Detroit has added another problem on top of that: Jimmy Howard has been dreadful. Last year Howard stopped 69.2 percent of shootout attempts, slightly better than the league-average 66.4 percent.

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

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

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

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

    28 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    Just over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about the sacking of Andre Villas Boas, where I questioned whether the bullet should have stopped at Andre, or whether the problem lay further. Questions began developing over the club concerning many higher figures, the players and other aspects. Over our owner, Joe Lewis’ long term interest in the clubs success, as to us on the outside, it seems as though he’s more interested in keeping his grip on his money in his waning years, rather than push the boat out and invest.Furthermore, over Daniel Levy’s mentality to turn our club from an over…

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

Rickie Lambert scored his first goal in Liverpool colours to give his boyhood club a dream start before Palace pegged them back. It was a goal made in Southampton with Lambert latching onto Adam Lallana’s through ball before tucking the ball past Julian Speroni. Dwight Gayle…

    Which teams are most likely to make college football’s first-ever four-team playoff? And which have the best chance of coming away with the national title?The quick answer is the obvious one: The Alabama Crimson Tide lead the way on both counts.

Well, they won. Then in Week 4 they dropped to 2-2, and the end of an era was supposedly nigh. Except no. Pats will be Pats, and now they’ve won their last six games en route to the best record in the AFC.

The loss ruined the Bulldogs’ quest for their first undefeated season since 1940, when they went 10-0-1.But under college football’s new playoff system, which will select four teams to contend for the national championship, a late-season loss by a No. 1 team isn’t as devastating as in years past. Mississippi State, for instance, fell only to No. 4 in the committee’s rankings after it…

    PHX (-9.5) vs. PHII know this goes directly against my usual strategy of ride or die with the points, but in this case I am willing to make an exception. The Sixers are an absolute mess right now, and are so bad that the general public truly believes Kentucky could beat them in a one on one game. While that isn't happening, they still are not good enough to beat an NBA team right now. Sure they will get a few wins against weaker teams who are having an off night, but that won't happen against the Suns. Phoenix knows that the west is way too competitive to drop these easy ones, and will pedal…

    Oh boy, here we go. As a baseball fan, we can mark Monday, November 17th, 2014 as the start to the Major League Baseball offseason. Yeah, I realize the “offseason” starts after the World Series, but this is what there is to look forward to. The trades. The free agent signings. The rumor mill. Does it get any better? Monday started with a splash. We started with Russell Martin signing a five-year, $82 million deal with the Toronto Blue Jays. Talk about shocker. I thought Martin was destined for the North Side, but the Jays swooped in for the kill with the first overpay of the…

Then you see this… Your browser does not support iframes. Every time this hulk of a power hitter sends a baseball into the stratosphere that insane marlin leaps out of the monument in left center field. All you can do is shake your head in appreciation, disgust, and amazement. Except when you are watching a player like Giancarlo Stanton, you can’t help but await the marlin’s leap. You crave it.

First, the context. The following is what Rose said about missing games this season. I know a lot of people get mad when they see me sit out. But I think a lot of people don’t understand that when I sit out it’s not because of this year. I’m thinking about long-term. I’m thinking about after I’m done with basketball,…

No matter whether such players are on the first or fourth line, it is important to highlight these unsung heroes. For many of these guys, they are players whose name and number aren’t usually seen on the backs of the fans’ jerseys. Star players are important to the team’s success and the financial success of the franchise, but third and fourth liners who work as hard as possible on every shift deserve equal if not more credit.

    In a season full of missteps and selfishness the National Football League finally made a good decision. The New York Jets v.s. Buffalo Bills game will be rescheduled to Monday Nov. 24 at 7:00 p.m. in Detroit, Michigan. This will be the Bills’ second game at Ford Field this year, as they defeated the Lions 17-14. Optimistically, with this being the second Bills game at Ford Field, Buffalo still has home field advantage, as the Jets have not traveled to Detroit this year. Losing a true home game is unfortunate, especially for such a lively fan base. In a competitive sense it is certainly a…

  • BOXING – November 12th – Mundine v Rabchenko, HiSense Arena Melbourne AUS

    13 Nov 2014 | 12:01 am
    What better way than to spend a Wednesday night than some “World Championship” Boxing. I’m not 100% exactly sure what the “Silver” title is or entails but it certainly doesn’t entitle the holder to be a “full” World Champion. Anthony “The Man” Mundine is certainly no stranger to these type of titles, as although he claims to be a 3 time World Champion, he has only ever been an “Interim” title holder (as there was a “Super” Champion above him at the same time) or the very lightly regarded IBO Champion, which is…
  • FOOTBALL – October 10th – A-League – Melbourne Victory v Western Sydney Wanderers

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

  • English Footballers Are Just Not Good Enough?

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

    26 Oct 2014 | 10:31 pm
    I was still savouring the moment when Van Persie scored a last minute goal against Chelsea this morning to rescue a point for Manchester United when this news broke up. A footballer shot dead! Quite shocking and bewildering. This incident reportedly happened at Vosloorus, South of Johannesburg. South Africa’s goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa who played for Orlando Pirates was found dead at his girlfriend’s house. In a statement, the South African Police Service said two men had entered the house, around 20:00 (18:00 GMT), while a third man remained outside. All three fled after shots were…
  • Main Bowling Teknik Spin

    Ismail N
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:37 pm
    Di kalangan rakyat Asia, teknik spin ini agak popular. Selain dari kosnya yang lebih murah dari segi peralatan dan mudah dikuasai, bermain bowling teknik spin sesuai ini digunakan di pusat-pusat bowling di Asia yang kebanyakkanya tidak menjaga lane dengan sempurna. Oleh itu, menggunakan teknik hook menjadi susah, lantaran lane yang tidak terjaga menyebabkan hook yang dibuat kurang menjadi (tiada grip pada lane) atau sering tersasar. Teknik spin agak mudah dikawal kerana pergerakkan bola yang agak lurus. Bola melalui beberapa “board“/papan sahaja sebelum sampai ke poket tengah dan…
  • The Premier League Top Four

    Ismail N
    7 Oct 2014 | 12:23 am
    After seven matches, the Premier League’s table is beginning to take its usual shape.  Chelsea is at the top, followed by Manchester City, with Manchester United is not far behind at fourth.  The only odd member in the top four is surprisingly Southampton who sold more than £100 millions worth of talents in the last transfer window. I don’t think they will last long though and I do expect Arsenal to complete the top four come May next year. Chelsea Pic credit: I hate to admit this but I think Chelsea will go on to win the league this season, unless of course, something…

The goals have been a little one-sided also with City scoring 22 of these 30. Throw into the mix that Spurs have injury questions over keeper Lloris and top scorer Chadli and you wonder if this…

Cookie has a bigger stake available this weekend due to midweek winners - so is staking approx £12,000 this weekendWatford v Bournemouth I’ve been quite sweet about the chances of Bournemouth in their last two games, and they have let me down on both occasions, and this is very much a case of twice bitten thrice shy for me. Watford are without Troy Deeney and Fernando Foresieri, so are missing options up front (those two…

  • Liberty Flames Stun Previously Undefeated Coastal Carolina Chanticleers to Take the Big South Football Title

    Andy Coffaro
    23 Nov 2014 | 8:02 am
    If you like dramatic endings that decide conference championships, you would have loved to be at Brooks Stadium in South Carolina on Saturday.BR-26 Liberty’s John Lunsford booted a 32-yard field goal with just 1:20 to play to give the road underdog Flames a 15-14 lead. Then, BR-7 Coastal Carolina QB Alex Ross drove his team 69 yards in nine plays to set up a field goal that would decide the Big South Football title. But Alex Catron’s 24-yard chip shot was blocked, and a stunned crowd of 8,576 watched in disbelief as their Chanticleers lost for the first time all season.Coastal…

  • BennettRank Correctly Predicts Seven of Eight First Round D2 Football Playoff Games

    Colt Kesselring
    22 Nov 2014 | 3:59 pm
    BennettRank is a predictive, data-driven ranking system that works a lot like power rankings. That means we expect our top team, BR-1, to beat any team in the division on a neutral field. We expect our second ranked team, BR-2, to beat every team except BR-1. BR-3 should beat every team except BR-1 or BR-2, and so on. The more data we get, the more predictive our rankings become, and by the time playoffs come around we’re pretty dialed in.The first round of the D2 playoffs were a great demonstration of that. We went 7-1 in our predictions in the first round. To see our preview…

    Colt Kesselring
    22 Nov 2014 | 3:04 pm
    Before last weekend, TCU legend Ladainian Tomlinson was the only FBS running back who had ever rushed for over 400 yards in a single game. His 406 yards on 43 carries in a 52-24 win over UTEP November 20, 1999 were the most an FBS running back had ever gained in a single game, breaking the previous record of 396 set by Kansas RB Tony Sands November 23, 1991.Nearly 15 years to the day after Tomlinson set the record, Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon broke it. The junior running back carried the ball 25 times for 408 yards and four touchdowns in a win over Nebraska last weekend. Gordon’s…

The schools will meet Saturday at Harvard Stadium for the 131st time, in a game known simply as, “The Game.”The Ivy League doesn’t participate in the FCS playoffs, so this is about as big as it gets.

    Preview: Arsenal vs Manchester United [Image from Flickr by: wonker]Two sides, that are from two completely different galaxies. The derby stretches back to when Sir Alex Ferguson realized Arsene Wenger would be a threat to his dominion. It was a rivalry worth noting as it was highlighted by not just the managers' behaviors but also two of the clubs' stalwarts- Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira. Fast forward to the future and the sides look completely different. Both sides share several similarities; lack leadership, no steel in the middle of the park and have been displaced as two of the most…

  • The best of a mediocre lot at Manchester United

    14 Nov 2014 | 11:26 pm
    Since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, some may argue even before, the Manchester United defense has seemed to slowly declined. Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra were all loyal servants to the red devils, and arguably created the best back four (in their prime) that United have ever seen. Although their defending didn't look to good last year either, the United back line has looked awful in this campaign when facing any attack. With the transfer window coming up in January, what centre back pairing should accompany Rafael and Shaw on either flank, until the next…

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

    “Somebody once said that DNA moves in mysterious ways.” I could hear the drum beating. A strange dark rhythm coming from deep within the mist. My companion had come in full regalia – full military gear complete with a Winchester AR-15 assault rifle and a big ugly .45 Smith & Wesson. I convinced him to leave the former in the big grey Cadillac, which we had conveniently parked far off the shoulder of the highway, with the headlights off, of course. “Leave the engine running,” I said, “and for Christ’s sakes put that fucking machine gun away, man. He doesn’t fight with…

    The Elections are over now, and the vote-pimps have receded back into dark-wet corners and underground bunkers and big, pink Cadillacs, with signs like “VOTE OR DIE” or “I’LL BREAK A LEG FOR THE GOP” crudely taped onto tinted windows. They are silent for now, licking their wounds and sleeping off victory hangovers. The winners won big this year and the losers lost bigger. Obama and his administration of Black Panthers were beaten like cheap whores by the GOP which dusted off its national chest of Nazi propaganda pamphlets and united the White Power base into a riotous frenzy…
  • John Wick is Why We Still Go to Movie Theaters

    The plot is not complicated. An assassin takes an impossible job to get out of the business in order to spend more time with his dying wife. She dies, but gives him a reason to live – a dog. Some prick kills the dog, and the assassin goes back to work. John Wick doesn’t need a complicated, dramatic plot to be the reason why we still got to movie theaters. I’d been jacked to see John Wick since Doug Benson recommended it on his podcast, “Doug Loves Movies.” John Wick is the perfect film to see with a large audience on the big screen, so when my cousin and I got to…

First, he said he’d like his nickname to be spelled ‘Mollie,” citing that it looks more masculine, but I suggested his nickname be Paulie, as in a guy named Paul from St. Paul and the big sign in center field featuring a guy from St. Paul named Paulie. It’s common sense people. Your browser does not support iframes. My other issue is with his answer to a question from Andrew Pint about developing Spanish-speaking prospects. Molitor…

    Nico Rosberg is on pole position for the all important championship showdown between himself and team-mate Lewis Hamilton in tomorrow’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Hamilton looked to have the edge in the first two qualifying sessions, but a lock-up on his first run in the top 10 shoot-out evaporated his momentum and allowed Rosberg to steal pole position. Williams looked as though they could threaten Mercedes after Q2, but their challenge faded. They will start from the third row of the grid.

The British driver started from 2nd place and only overtook two drivers over the course of the race to take a comfortable win. Championship leader and winner last time out in Beijing Lucas di Grassi and eDams driver Sebastien Buemi took 2nd and 3rd despite having started from 18th and 19th place.

  • See and Be Seen: Choosing Bike Lights

    19 Nov 2014 | 2:43 am
    You can get a cheap small pair of front/rear bike lights if all you want is to get home safe when you end up staying out late. But these days there are far more options available than just that. One of the key questions to ask yourself is what you need the lights for: to see or to be seen? “Nightriding” mountain bikers need a powerful steady broader beam to be able to see trail features such as rocks, drops and trees before they’re right on top of them. Road cyclists need something different. In urban areas, you want to be seen by traffic, so you need a good flashing light.

    Jason Whitney The city of Buffalo, New York has been getting pounded by snow this past week to the tune of record levels. Despite the killer storm, this hasn’t stopped players and native Buffalonians from enjoying one of the worst winter storms ever. While the Buffalo sports teams have had to either relocate or worry about fans showing up to the games because of the snow, some residents have used this winter storm as an opportunity to get creative. And this was certainly the case when a Buffalo native used Taylor Swift’s smash hit song “Shake If Off’ to shovel the…

    Jason Whitney Oakland Raiders fans have been subjected to some of the worst football any fan base has had to endure since their last successful season back in 2002-2003 – when the team made the Super Bowl. After being slaughtered by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that year in the Super Bowl, Oakland went into a downward spiral like no other team in NFL history. The last decade plus have featured an array of head coaches, losses and failed draft picks. But there was some slight success during this dreadful tenure and that came from former coach Hue Jackson.

  • It’s not a good idea to ride a bike to the Bills’ stadium to shovel snow

    19 Nov 2014 | 3:10 pm
    Jim Racalto News broke earlier today that the Buffalo Bills are willing to pay 500 fans ten bucks an hour and give them free game tickets if they will shovel snow at Ralph Wilson Stadium. For those living in a cave, the Buffalo area was buried by snow yesterday, and another round with mother nature is expected tonight. While a lot of die-hard fans will probably answer the call, getting to the stadium in such horrid conditions can be a problem. Especially if you don’t own a car, and instead opt to try to ride a Huffy. A Reddit user was hired to help shovel, but had some traveling issues.

But after a killer snowstorm that pounded Buffalo for six feet of snow – with more on the way, the Buffalo Bills are looking for help in regards to clearing 220,000 tons of snow from Ralph Wilson Stadium by Sunday.

  • Andy Dalton stealing money from Bengals

    7 Nov 2014 | 11:29 am
    Thursday night, Andy Dalton put together one of the worst performances by a quarterback in NFL history. It was Geno Smith-esque. Yet somehow, the Bengals signed him to a six-year, $115 million contract in the offseason. He will make $22 million by February, and the rest is not guaranteed completely. The Bengals are essentially getting robbed of $18 million this season. The Bengals are still 5-3-1, but it has been a rocky road, and this really doesn’t look like a playoff team, despite being very much alive. Dalton’s stat line Thursday night was of epic proportions.

    Erik Lambert
    22 Nov 2014 | 7:15 pm
    Safe to say that Derrick Rose may be taking things a bit too seriously of late.  Then again he’s been that way most of his NBA career.  It’s part of what makes him great but also part of why fans are growing tired of him, specifically his injury problems coupled with a general lack of willingness to open up to his city. Maybe Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee can give him a few pointers.  Unlike the stoic Rose, he demonstrated how loose, relaxed and even playful he can be in the middle of game when he went after a stray ball out of bounds against the New Orleans Pelicans.

    The season is far from over but the rumors keep flying that the Chicago Bears could trade Jay Cutler in 2015.  The only question is how? Before exploring the possibility it’s important to overview what such a move would accomplish.  If the Bears were to just cut Cutler outright, it would create a bedeviling situation with the salary cap.  The team would have $19.5 million in dead money on their payroll and would actually lose $3 million in cap space.  Obviously that is not something the team will accept.  So a trade is their best and likely only option.  It would result in just $4…

    NZ Breakers 80-72 Melbourne UnitedFour in a row, yo.Playing at Vector where the team is yet to lose this season, a massive second quarter outweighed a sluggish third and the Breakers moved to 8-3 for the season. That’s good for second place on the ladder as things stand, below Perth at 7-2. (UPDATE - Melbourne went on to beat Perth on Sunday, putting NZB up to first!)Unfortunately it did come at a cost as Tom Abercrombie pulled out of the game after picking up a quad injury in shootarounds earlier in the day. He could miss a month.Reuben Te Rangi made the start in Abo’s place, but it was…

    Last Week: 9-5Season: 102-58-1Kansas City Chiefs (7-3) at Oakland Raiders (0-10)Man, last week was ruthless. There’s always a week like that at least once this season where you just can’t catch a break with picks. I had a week like that in Week 9 when I went 6-7, but at least managed to ride the wave last round. I had Houston, Chicago and Miami all to win, even if I got ripped to shreds on a couple others. From here on it’s back into the tipping grind until the last couple weeks when some teams don’t care anymore any they let gamblers, columnists and armchair commentators alike all…

    Making BANK!Hi, my name’s Giancarlo Stanton. Outfielder for the Miami Marlins, and I have more money than you.Stanton’s not a guy who gets that much coverage because he plays for a terrible, terrible Marlins team, but he’s consistently been putting up numbers. He’s a power hitter with the ability to clear not just fences but entire stadiums. He’s coming off his best season yet (his fifth in the majors) where he hit 37 homers with 105 RBI at an average of .288. He’s an All Star and he just came runner up in the NL MVP voting to Clayton Kershaw and his historically immense season…

  • Fast Break Report #10: Who Needs A Third Quarter Anyway?

    14 Nov 2014 | 2:45 am NZ Breakers 71-55 Wollongong HawksWell… it wasn’t always pretty.But the Breakers are 7-3 now, riding a strong finish at home against the Hawks to overcome a horrendous third quarter in which they scored just three points. Count ‘em, one two three.It was disastrous, yet somehow at the end of that quarter the scores were still tied! 47-47. NZB shot 1-18 from the field in that duration but they at least found the zone defensively (and some luck, sure) to keep Wollongong to only 13 themselves. 13 in a quarter? That’s really good in most situations.The secret trap door…
