When the match ended with her 63rd unforced error, the 21st-seeded Stephens was in such a hurry to leave Arthur Ashe Stadium that she briskly walked around the net to Larsson's side of the court for the handshake.

Three members of Congress wrote NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell asking him to reconsider Rice's suspension, the governor of Maine says he'll boycott the league, and numerous groups that advocate for women and families…

    THE STORY OF THE WORST (OR BEST) DAY EVER The University of Michigan, much like anything else, is complicated. It is located in a state suffering from a generations-long economic malaise and it is bringing in money like Tony Montana if Tony Montana weren’t a paranoid idiot (rewatch that movie: every decision he makes after betraying Sosa is moronic.) The university itself is massive. Most likely, you know at least three people who go there. If I’m lucky, two of them aren’t douchebags. Sorry about the third one. I tried to stop him. Many of the people who go to Michigan are very smart.

    LET US PRAY Join us in seeking forgiveness for what we are about to do, and perhaps not do, this upcoming football season. FORGIVENESS GRANTED I forgive you, Will Muschamp, and seek new outrages. Fresh outrages. Outrages where we lose to Idaho, perhaps. I forgive you, Wisconsin-Arizona State refs; it was very late and Todd Graham's hair looks sharp. You are forgiven for being beautiful and everything we want in a football team, Baylor, but this baby we're having will save this marriage to Will Muschamp.

What he ended up with is this “small” castle (I thought at first it was a playset, but when you look at alternate angles, you can see it’s pretty big.) The Minnesota man came up with the idea to 3D print a house two years ago, and in April started putting together plans to construct an entire house, but started with this castle.

    It is by no means impossible that Tony McCoy could go through the card and ride seven winners at WorcesterWe may be in the core Flat season but I quite admire the way Tony McCoy keeps appearing like a Jump Racing ninja to steal the headlines on behalf of the winter game. He could do it again tonight, when he has seven good rides at Worcester and it is by no means impossible to see him going through the card. Continue reading...

The race is being seriously considered for Al Kazeem, despite initial indications that the race could come too soon after his win at Windsor on Saturday night.Unfortunately there are no Group races over nine or 10 furlongs in England during September, so we have not ruled out the idea of returning to Leopardstown, said Al Kazeems trainer, Roger Charlton,…

    "I've never seen it this big""Dad, even you aren't good enough to surf these waves""Whoa, I can't believe it's so big.""I'm just glad we found parking."These were someone of the conversations taking place on the sand while The Wedge in Newport Beach put on a show for locals and tourists alike. Waves were in the 20-30ft. range and provided challenging situations for surfers and bodyboarders alike. Jamie O'Brien has since become a Wedge local and caught a couple big sets, before snapping his Catch Surfboard!By 8am, the surrounding streets and alleys closely resembled the 405 Freeway as people…
  • The Swell of The Decade?

    Chase
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    As a major south swell is schedule to arrive later tonight and peak tomorrow, surfers up and down the California coast are preparing for some major surf. Many forecasters are reporting that this will be one of the biggest swells to hit our coastline in more than a decade. Is this hype? Only time will tell.  While all of this is very exciting, it is also important to remember that the ocean is very powerful and surf conditions can change quite rapidly. Rip currents will look more like rivers and side shore currents will surely pose a challenge to swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers alike.

    For me personally, the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti is one of my favorite stops on the WCT each year. Especially when a solid swell presents itself; something which pushes many professional surfers outside of their comfort zones. This year was no different as the waves were stellar and the top surfers really put on a show.Of course, this included some heavy wipeouts, serious injuries and crucial rescues during the peak of the swell as those in the water were dedicated to charging hard. While Teahupoo can be a punishing wave for those who ride it, it surely creates an exciting event for…

    While the Wedge in Newport Beach may have looked more like a playful and fun beach break this morning which was spitting out perfect barrels for those who ventured into the lineup, one must also remember how dangerous of a spot it really is. With heavy closeouts breaking in waist deep water, wonky backwash and unpredictable sneaker sets, the wedge is a fun, scary and hard to predict beast. The lineup was extremely crowded with local standouts like Dylan Cotton and top professionals including Jamie O'Brien; both of which were absolutely charging! All photos by Chase Miller

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

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

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

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

    29 May 2014 | 1:44 pm
    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

    You need to learn how to play tennis mentally after you reach a certain level in this game. Everything is going to boil down to your mental game and you will always play up the imag you have of the match and your opponent.  Many players know how to play the game, but very few know how to play the mental game. The ones that do, are the ones that become Champions. The rest become good at losing and making excuses.  Which category are you in now?  Champions have mastered the mental game by learning to control their fears and dominating their emotions.  I have been studying the mental aspect…
  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

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

  • Financial Planning and Pro Athletes: Players In Investment Trouble

    Steve Richards
    31 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    On the topic of financial planning, American economist Paul Samuelson once said, “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.” Of course, some athletes have no problems going to Vegas, and they take a lot more than $800 with them. For example, golfer John Daly once claimed that he lost between $50 million and $60 million on bad bets. If the rest of us had $50 million to lose, we’d probably invest in the stock market. In fact, a lot of athletes invest their millions in securities or in business ventures.

When Rory McIlroy won the U.S Open in 2011 and then followed it up with a PGA Championship victory in 2012, everyone in the golf world let out a collective sigh of relief – they had a star again.

    The snapshot is from the aftermath of that impossible loss to Michigan State in 1998. It's the only evidence of any sound in the stadium that night, as most of the 93,595 shellshocked fans who wandered out onto the streets did so without saying a word. That afternoon the Buckeyes had a 24-9 lead, and then a punt hit Nate Clements in the back. Something strange then happened to the air on the field: Guys who never fumble fumbled. Every jump ball, every 50/50 play and every single break went the Spartans' way, yet the most dominating Ohio State team since 1968 was still in position to win on…

    After a longer than usual delay, Ohio State released the depth chart for the opener against Navy today.  And as expected, the word "or" is featured prominently. There is a bevy of positions listed with an "or" asterisk. Billy Price or Joel Hale will start at left guard. Price, a redshirt freshman, is a self-proclaimed workout warrior and Hale, a senior, moved over from the defensive line to help offensive line coach Ed Warinner's new-look crew out.  Jacoby Boren or Chad Lindsay at center. Boren is the little brother of former Buckeye standouts Justin and Zach Boren and Lindsay is a graduate…

Meyer paused, then reiterated the name as he thought out loud for a second. "Keenan Reynolds?" he asked. Meyer was then reminded Reynolds was the name of Navy's starting quarterback, one who set an NCAA single-season record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback last year with 31. "Oh, I'm sorry. Yeah, I'm a big fan of his, too," Meyer said. "I didn't know him coming out of high school, and I just know him, the Navy coaches and some people I've…

    21 Aug 2014 | 8:34 pm
    Believe it or not, the Chicago Cubs have a bright future ahead of them... If everything goes as planned. And nothing has gone right for the Cubs in an extremely long time. But, there is always hope. And for the Cubs, their hope is in their farm system. Now, one might argue that the Twins have the best system, having Byron Buxton (the number 1 ranked prospect in baseball) and Miguel Sano (power-hitting 3rd baseman) at their disposal, but both are injury prone, as shown through the injuries they have both suffered this season. Others may say that the Houston Astros have a better system than the…

    Hello and welcome to another Wednesday of deep thoughts. We have all heard the expression, “the dog days of summer”…for some this probably has something to do with the weather. For others, I suspect that that familiar phrase has a different meaning.  As I sat trying to figure out what to write about this week, I realized the dog days for me begin with the realization that summer is almost over. For many baseball fans, the dog days begin when they realize that their team is done for this year. Whatever your definition, we are without a doubt, currently enveloped by the dog days of…

This method has its many disadvantages because the pace that works for the class may not be the pace that works for somebody else.  People who do not like this kind of training really choose to have a personal trainer. They normally design a routine that is specifically made to suit somebody’s needs. This routine keeps in mind the goal and the expectations of…

Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve. The Yankees will have to get better without ace Masahiro Tanaka for at least the next six weeks, but if Shane Greene’s arm continues to impress it could soften that blow a tad.

Grossman will reunite with former ‘Skins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. It seems like these two guys are joined at the hip. Grossman will become the Browns third string signal caller and become a mentor of sorts for QB’s Johnny Football and Brian Hoyer as they try to learn the Shanahan offensive system. I don’t think Grossman has much left as a player, but I think this is a good signing for the Browns. The biggest…

How they continue to let the Atlanta Braves slip past them game after game is mind-boggling to me. Like in last night’s 3-1 loss where pitcher Gio Gonzalez fails to cover first base on a ground ball that allowed the Braves to score the go ahead run when the inning would have been over if he had just executed the fundamentals.

This is the group’s third installment of their “ballin’ wit no deal”…

    For those getting laughs at the expense 11-time World Champion Floyd Mayweather thinking he can’t read you can’t laugh anymore. The unfair reports that Floyd cannot read, which have been posted on social media by various individuals and reported by certain media outlets, are simply not true. The proof is in the pudding. Please watch and download a video (using the link below) that was recorded by Floyd for promotional purposes (which included taping a spot for a CBS College Football game and a spot promoting his fight against Marcos Maidana).

  • Sox Take Another Game Against The Jays

    shelley
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:22 am
    The Red Sox actually won a game and hoped to be able to have two wins in a row.  The Sox had rookie Rubby De La Rosa on the mound vs. former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey.  The Sox went out to an early lead, allowed the game to be tied in totally Red Sox fashion, went into extra innings and then had a monster of an 11th inning to put the game to bed.  Mike Napoli hit a 3 run homerun in the 11th that I am not sure if it has come down to earth yet the following morning. The Sox bats got all over R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball with scoring 3 runs in the 1st inning.  Pedroia hit a 2 run…

    The Red Sox had been riding a streak that they desperately wanted to get off, an 8 game losing streak.  The Sox had held leads in many of the games, but weren’t able to hold on to the lead into the final stretch.  Last night the Sox had the only remaining starter from the World Series team on the mound in Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz has done nothing but struggle this year and everyone was hoping he could right the ship in his start last night.  Clay did exactly that.  He pitched 8 shutout innings and was on the mound in the 9th looking for the complete game.  Clay wasn’t able…

    25 Aug 2014 | 5:52 am
    At this point I am almost grotesquely curious at how long this losing streak can last. What will be the magic elixir that will bring it to an end? In each of the games with the Mariners the Sox had the lead at least once, however when the 9 innings came and went the Sox would be looking down the barrel of a loss each and ever time. This time the Sox had Allen Webster on the mound and he just wasn’t able to capitalize when the Sox offense made up for his poor first inning and gave him the lead. The day also saw David Ortiz leave the game for the 2nd straight time with an injury, this…

  • Philadelphia Eagles 2014 Betting Odds

    Lucky Blogger
    27 Aug 2014 | 12:44 pm
    The Philadelphia Eagles will look to build on its strong finish to the 2013 season with a repeat performance under head coach Chip Kelly. Kelly’s offensive schemes took a little while to gel with his roster but there is little arguing with the final results: 2nd overall in offense and 4th in scoring. The weak point of the team is the defense which ranked a dismal 29th. On offense, the Eagles should be happy if they manage to repeat their performance from a year ago. While it’s incredibly doubtful that Nick Foles repeats his staggering TD-INT ratio from last season (27-2), if…

    The Clemson Tigers may have lost a lot of starters from last year, but the team should still be competitive under the leadership of coach Dabo Swinney. On offense, the team has some considerable shoes to fill. Quarterback Tahj Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins are no longer on the team. Instead, the Tigers will have to choose between quarterbacks Cole Stoudt and DeShaun Watson for the starting job under center and wideout Mike Williams will look to fulfill the hole left by Watkins. The defense will be returning a bunch of experienced talent, including seniors Vic Beasley, Grady Jarrett and…

    The 2014 US Open is shaping up to be a very interesting tournament.  For me the main storyline is Roger Federer and his chance for another Grand Slam title.  Roger was so close at Wimbledon, losing an amazing 5 setter to world number 1 Novak Djokovic.  Going into that 5th set many fans though this was Roger’s chance at another Grand Slam, but it wasn’t to be.  I for one though still think he has a shot in a few more and his form right now leads me to believe he has a chance at the upcoming US Open.

In a span of 10 seconds, you can see the son becoming a baseball fan for life.  After the father catches the ball at an afternoon game, he holds it triumphantly over his head in a Rocky-like pose.  His son rushes to give him a bear hug.  His dad then gives…

  • Tigers win 3-team blockbuster

    Erik Voldness
    1 Aug 2014 | 8:49 am
    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…

    Rumors emerged last night that the Cleveland Cavaliers have finally agreed to include Andrew Wiggins in any Kevin Love proposal. As a Wolves fan, this is the best case scenario assuming Love won't stay in Minnesota.Receiving a high-ceiling #1 overall pick, along with other young players and/or draft picks, gives the Wolves the best chance at building a consistent winner over the next few years. However, let's be clear here: Kevin Love is an elite player in basketball. If he were willing to resign with the Wolves rather than demanding a trade, he would't even be available. Cleveland wouldn't…

    Jason Hodges
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:18 am
    Could the Utah Utes Football team really lose to Idaho State? Ok, I’ll admit it… the title of this column is a shameless hook. We all know that Idaho State is a warm-up game against a FCS team that the Utes scheduled much like every other Power 5 school does the first week, so it’s an obvious win. But given that it’s a win, what will the Utes need to accomplish in order to feel that this first game is a success? In my opinion, if Utah does not accomplish all of the following, they can consider this game a loss: Tempo – Under Dave Christiansen, the Utes are looking to improve…

General Manager Garth Lagerway will be without a contract at the end of the year. The plan early in the season was to play the season out, and see at the end of the year what would happen. Lagerway is the perfect general manager mode. He is a former player, and before coming on with RSL he was a lawyer. He knows how to read and understand a Collective Bargaining Agreement. Lagerway was key to creating the RSL team that won the…

    The Bengals seem set on Bernard sharing playing time with the rookie Hill. We break down the fantasy implications. The Cincinnati Bengals have spent most of training camp talking up rookie running back Jeremy Hill, to the point where he could be in a timeshare with Giovani Bernard. The Bengals' official website expects Bernard and Hill to get about 200 touches each this season. In short, Hill could play the same role BenJarvus Green-Ellis did last season as a goal-line, power back complement to Bernard's shifty style. Bernard split time with Green-Ellis in his rookie year, getting 170 carries…

Denver Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer will find his way onto the field this season, though it's unclear where he stands when it comes to the depth chart. With guys like Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Wes Welker on the roster, Latimer won't get as much playing time as he'd like. But the snaps he gets will come in big situations. Latimer will be used in plenty of Denver's red zone packages, according to Jeff Legwold of ESPN. Latimer has good size and is tough to beat…

    Sloane Stephens is the latest American to be ousted from the second round of the 2014 U.S. Open.  She battled to take the first set against Sweden's Johanna Larsson and led 3-Love in the second set before seeming to fall apart.  "Things just got a little shaky. Obviously she played some good games after that," Stephens said after the match. "Start of the third set I tried to just put it behind me and came out swinging. I did." Larsson took the second and third sets 6-4, 6-2. Stephens, who was the 21st seed, had 63 unforced errors in the match, which lasted more than two hours.  Madison…
  • The vetting of Josh Shaw's story now being handled by campus authorities

    Graham Watson
    27 Aug 2014 | 12:06 pm
    USC coach Steve Sarkisian told media Wednesday that the program was in a “holding pattern” while the validity of Josh Shaw’s story about jumping from a second-story balcony to save his drowning nephew is handled by campus authorities. On Monday, USC released a heroic story of Shaw, who was on a second floor balcony during a family party, spotting his 7-year-old nephew who couldn’t swim struggling in the pool. Shaw, with no regard for personal safety, jumped from the balcony, landed on the concrete below, sprained both ankles and managed to roll into the pool to save the drowning boy.

    LONDON, August 27- New Manchester United signing Angel di Maria has sensationally claimed he did not want to leave Real Madrid, but was left no choice by the La Liga club’s board. United signed Di Maria for a British record fee of 59.7 million pounds on Tuesday, but the winger revealed in an open letter to Madrid fans that it was not his intention to leave. Instead, Di Maria claimed “lies” had been told when both player and club were in disputes over a new contract. Here is the full transcript of the letter as it ran on Marca.

    MILTON KEYNES, August 26- Manchester United sank to new depths on Tuesday when they crashed out of the League Cup in the second round following a 4-0 defeat at third-division Milton Keynes Dons. United had announced the signing of Angel di Maria from Real Madrid in a British-record £59.7 million ($98 million, 75 million euros) deal shortly before kick-off, but they were brought down to earth with a painful bump as a second-string team fell apart at Stadium MK. Will Grigg scored either side of half-time for the League One side before substitute Benik Afobe added a brace of his own to leave a…

    LONDON, August 26- Arsenal fear Olivier Giroud could be ruled out for as long as three months if a second scan confirms that he has a broken ankle. That would leave Arsène Wenger facing a race against time to sign a new striker before the transfer window shuts next Monday. Giroud sustained the injury in the dying seconds of the 2-2 draw at Everton after scoring Arsenal’s late equaliser. Arsenal are hoping Giroud has not sustained a fracture, but there is major concern at the Emirates that there is a break, after the Frenchman was sent for two scans. The club are mindful of the fact that a…

Daudi Kajembe, a former assistant coach with lower division side Sparki Youth, was set free in the Kenyan coastal city for lack of credible evidence. He was accused of attacking and injuring the private parts of division one referee, Martin Wekesa Shikuku on Sept. 22, 2012, allegedly impairing his child-bearing abilities when the official was about to send off a player from his team.

    The 2014 version of the Florida Gators are coming into opening weekend healthy which is a sigh of relief for their fans. We have talked about the 2013 Gators plenty over the past couple of months. Whether its discussing head coach Will Muschamp’s job status or rival fans making fun of their worst season since 1979. Now with the 2014 season a few days away, I wonder can the Gators be this year’s version of the 2013 Auburn Tigers? First, let’s discuss what the Tigers did last year.

    With the college football season kicking off tomorrow (technically it will kickoff today), I wanted you to know what is the hottest ticket for the 2014 season. There are many marquee games on the schedule this year but a rivalry in the SEC tops them all. According to Forbes, Alabama at LSU is the most expensive ticket for the 2014 season. Despite a decrease in average secondary price since last month, Alabama vs LSU football tickets are the most expensive of the season. The game currently has average price of $568.83 on the secondary market, which is down 1.6% from July’s average of…

They say controversy sells and a popular show hopes that remains true for Rocker. According to Entertainment Weekly, Rocker has agreed to join the new season of Survivor.

    Growing up playing baseball in the back yard with my brother provided some of my most memorable experiences from childhood. I remember the time we were playing slow pitch wiffle ball and I got mad (I was probably losing), so I decided to break the rules and wing a fastball in there. Without flinching, my brother smacked that wiffle ball out of our yard, across the street and into the tree tops of our neighbors. In the history of baseball there has probably never been a pitcher who celebrated an opposing player’s home run like I did that day. But when my brother hit that home run, the…

I'm sure Wild would maintain he has the right to do whatever he wants within the rules of international competition. I maintain that I have the right to voice whatever opinion I have of his reprehensible decision. I don't know much about his background or history, but I'm pretty sure he benefited greatly from the freedom and opportunity our great country has to offer. This smells…

Both sports involve a lot of ice, something that last time I checked, doesn't naturally exist in a large part of the United States at anytime during the year. But what's really interesting is that the national sport of our wonderful neighbors to the north is neither of the sports at which they excelled in Sochi.

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

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

Second in line of my favorites I would say is definitely Brooks. I have had a few pairs of the Ghost and the Glycerin through the years.  A few months ago I bought both a pair of Saucony Triumphs and a pair of Brooks Glycerin.

    “It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings” – Ann Landers It seems like every day there is a news story on how childhood obesity is on the rise.  There has even been a spike in childhood diabetes.  So obviously a big part of fighting this is diet.  As a country we (kids included) eat too much sugar and too big of portions.  But what about exercise?  How much do they need?  How much is too much?   My kids have often asked me if they can run with me (not at 4:30 in the morning, but in…
  • My Essential Piece of Running Gear: The Running Tank

    Stephanie
    25 Jul 2014 | 11:45 am
    One very important aspect of making running enjoyable is having the right running gear. Not only do you want to look good but you want to choose things that are practical. Let’s face it, many of us have a long list of things we want…and those of us with kids often have to put those things at the end of the list. So when it does come time to buy running clothes you want to spend your money on things you can get the most use out of. Without a doubt what I have the most of are good, longer length, dri-fit type running tanks. First let me address the longer description. Luckily almost all…
  • Under Armour Boxerjocks – Product Review

    24 Jul 2014 | 7:33 am
    We wanted to poll a few wearers of the Under Armour Original Boxerjocks to see what they would say about their unmentionables. Here is what they had to say. “More comfort than the compression shorts, not quite as tight, especially the waist band. The mesh fly front lends more of an underwear feature, and more comfort as well. The 3 inch inseam is short, almost a brief, but then there is no riding up leg of the fabric and the 6 inch inseam is comfortable, I really like the weight of the fabric, it is not heavy and manages moisture well, keeping comfortable in hot weather.

    It’s that time of year again where fans, friends and family ask who is going to be on the final 53 man roster of their favorite NFL teams. After compiling several lists over the past few days, this is what I have concluded will be the final roster of 2014 Washington Redskins when first game of the regular season against the Houston Texans arrives. Let me preface this by saying that there are several position competitions that are too close to call. This is a testament to the depth that head coach Jay Gruden has obtained on the team.

Not because he has not been the biggest story coming out of Washington besides the nonsense that happens on Capitol Hill. Not because I do not like him. The Washington Redskins quarterback has captivated this town in both good and in bad ways. His presence on the team has been a marketing boom and a public relations nightmare all in the same breath. The team has not had this type of press for a player since the days of the late, great safety Sean Taylor who…

There have been fans’ phone calls to local sports talk radio about how out-of-sync the offense looked. On film it’s apparent that the offensive line could have been more effective. But,…

Even then, he was talking about a focus on technique. “We have got to stay on [the players],” he said, “and make sure they’re disciplined and not jumping off-sides and running to the ball on defense and offensively finishing blocks and finishing runs and running the routes at the right depth.

    The Ohio State football team has a tradition that every freshman must undergo: wear a black stripe on the helmet until you prove yourself in practice. Coach Urban Meyer started this as a rite of passage. Those that perform well during training can have their stripes removed and finally become part of the team. This year, the first freshmen to get their stripes off were Raekwon McMillan and Curtis Samuel -- a linebacker and a running back, respectively. Coach Meyer has been very vocal about these recruits who have impressed him with their performance since they got on the campus field.

OSU announced last Tuesday that they were reinstating the dismissed defensive end. He now must serve a 1-game suspension.

    Stacie

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

    I shared my thoughts on social media before. This topic came up again when I saw this headline in my Facebook Newsfeed… Georgia coach Mark Richt dropped a recruit because of his tweetsUnder that it said, “Twitter is a recruiting nightmare.” I disagree. Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices. The bottom line is, YOUR choices affect opportunities you receive and ones you get taken away from you. Don’t blame the tool. This very same tool can HELP you…

    I shared this thought with my 14yo daughter the other night. I let her know I was happy she out works and out trains a lot of her teammates, BUT… I encouraged her to not get complacent with that, to aim higher. After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

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

  • 2014 Fantasy Football: QB Preview

    David Solar

    The NFL is back and that brings the welcome return of fantasy football. Over the past two seasons we’ve begun using oddsmakers projections to shed a new light on fantasy rankings, and the results have been categorically successful. Last season we recommended taking Drew Brees ahead of the higher ranked Aaron Rodgers, and Brees outscored the Packers young gunslinger by 180 points in a standard Yahoo public league. We also projected a bounce back season for Lions QB Matthew Stafford, who finished last year as the 12th overall ranked fantasy player. This season we decided to break down our…
  • 2014 College Football Betting Against the Public Report

    David Solar
    27 Aug 2014 | 7:10 am
    Betting against the public has proven to be a historically profitable strategy across the six major American sports leagues, but constructing a solid system for College Football can be surprising difficult. One of the main reasons for this is that the number of bets varies greatly from game to game. For example, a contest between Alabama and Auburn may receive more than ten times the number of bets as a game between two smaller schools which greatly amplifies the impact of public betting. For this reason, simply looking at teams receiving less than 30% of spread bets may not be as accurate of…

It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

  • Donning Armor: The Under Armour Story

    Sporting E
    3 Aug 2014 | 9:46 am
    www.facebook.com/underarmour It all started with a simple idea back in 1996: to make a superior t-shirt for athletes. Under Armour founder Kevin Plank, a former football player for the University of Maryland, worked in his grandmother’s basement in Washington, D.C. and traveled up and down the country selling his revolutionary new product out of the trunk of his car. Now almost two decades later and seemingly out of nowhere, Under Armour has managed to break into the top ranks of the sports apparel industry. Its sales have steadily increased, totaling $2.33 billion last year. How did it…

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

Maybe you can’t find enough space in those wrist pockets to fit in all the small essentials you want to carry with you during your run? It’s a constant dilemma faced by a lot of runners – finding the pocket bag of just the right size and stability. It’s hard to look for something where they can stow away all the essential stuff they want to carry with them during their run without having to worry about…

    For the first time in over 5 years, Alabama head coach Nick Saban enters the regular season without a definitive starting QB. The Alabama Crimson Tide host the West Virginia Mountaineers in a week 1 battle of the SEC vs. the Big 12. After being ranked No. 1 for the most of the season in 2013, Alabama lost the Iron Bowl to Auburn, in turn missing out on a chance to play for the SEC conference championship and later losing the Sugar Bowl to #11 Oklahoma.

The NFL has fined the Seahawks and head coach Pete Carroll $300,000 and reduced the number of double-practices by two after violating league rules regarding player practices. Carroll’s fine was at least $100,000 and the Seahawks were docked over $200,000 while the team will lose at least two minicamp practices next season because it had excessive contact between players during a June 18 practice.

    Most of Fountain Square Brewery‘s bottles have a consistent label design with a periodic table symbol, the beer style clearly shown with the same font, and some pleasing artwork.

I guess there isn’t really an appropriate element for a periodic table symbol for Soul Ride, so that was left out. The artwork takes up more space and is more interesting on this label, and the beer style is smaller and integrated with the art. The label…

    Veteran pitcher A.J. Burnett was too much for Washington on Monday night, as the Phils beat the Nats 3-2 in Philadelphia. Despite the loss, the Nationals maintain a 7.5 game lead in the National League East. The 37 year old Burnett struck out a dozen, scattering three hits and issuing only a single walk in seven innings of work. Burnett’s only mistake, a solo home run by Anthony Rendon in the sixth inning. Your browser does not support iframes. The Nats made it interesting with a run in the top of the ninth, but Jonathan Papelbon closed it out for his 32nd save of the season. Tanner…

    Before this happened!!   I was able to take some pre-game pictures from the field. And, I was able to do so because of the generosity of my dude Andy, who was nice enough to invite me to the game, where I enjoyed field pass privileges, 50 yard line seats, and all that comes with the Touchdown Club.  Carlton and Jeffery were also along for the ride, and provided entertainment (dudes are funny) and transportation.  I can't thank all those dudes enough. Here are some of the photos I was able to snap off.  Apologies to the Redskin fans out there.  The quarterbacks didn't…

The best way to promote good food is to have good food handy. Each day between sky hooks and screens, we offered campers fresh fruits and veggies and here’s proof that they loved it! What’s that, Coach? You want me to keep practicing? An apple a day makes basketball even more fun to play! You say “cheese,” I say “banana.” It takes two. Between games, it’s time to refuel.

Athletes, analysts and fans alike were criticizing LeBron James for bailing out on his team, not b. Using Kobe as a comparison shooting free throws with a ruptured achilles and walking off under his own power. I know I am in the minority with this, but LeBron James was justifyable leaving the game with cramps.

    Kimber firearms first made appearance in the 1980s as rim and centrefire rifles that were undoubtedly handsome but often lacking in accuracy and plagued by quality-control problems. That incarnation of Kimber went under, and the new company of that name has none of the problems that doomed its ancestor. It started with a series of fine automatic pistols based on the Model 1911 Colt and has now gotten back into the rimfire rifle business. The latest Kimber .22s are a completely new design. Today, the Kimber name is associated with a different bunch of folks who call Yonkers, NY, their home,…

  • Can The Denver Broncos And Seattle Seahawks Possibly Be As Good As They Were Last Year?

    Chase Stuart
    20 Aug 2014 | 4:47 am
    Last year, the Denver Broncos had one of the greatest passing offenses in NFL history. Peyton Manning set an NFL single-season record for touchdown passes and passing yards, and the Broncos became the first team to score 600 points in a season. Likewise, the 2013 Seattle Seahawks pass defense was one of the best of all time. (The Broncos can attest to that.)The only thing more incredible than their performances last year would be if the Broncos and Seahawks were to do it again. Excellence can only last so long, and by their very nature, historically dominant performances are difficult to…
  • How Bullpens Took Over Modern Baseball

    Jonah Keri
    15 Aug 2014 | 8:27 am
    The New York Yankees faced a tight spot on July 9 at Progressive Field in Cleveland. Their newly acquired starting pitcher, Brandon McCarthy, had gutted his way through 6.2 innings, lacking his best stuff but still holding the Indians to four runs, just one of those earned. Locked in a 4-4 tie, manager Joe Girardi turned to his bullpen, knowing it had no margin for error.The first pitcher out of the pen was Matt Thornton. Instead of battling Indians hitters with an assortment of southpaw soft stuff, Thornton fired two straight fastballs to All-Star outfielder Michael Brantley, the second one…

    Washington Natty Ice (-1.5; EVEN) @ Philadelphia Doug Fister (12-4 2.38 ERA) is back on the mound for Washington tonight. He's been as solid as anyone in the league this year. I don't expect the Philies to do anything crazy tonight. The Nattys should definitely win this one by at least 2 runs. NY Yankees @ Detroit Tigers (-185)Porcello shut the Yanks down last night and I fully expect Price to follow suit. The Tigers need every win they can get right now. Somehow the best roster in baseball is on the cusp of missing playoffs and has guys with names like Buck Farmer holding a regular…

I don’t have the official numbers, but let’s just say I’ve been hotter than a couple of ASU co-eds at an outdoor rave rolling on E lately! And staying true to form, whenever I go on a solid run I throw down a bunch of ridiculous bets that are sure to go wrong! However, after all that is said I still like Real to win this game big, and that’s pretty obvious right? Well do yourself a favor and bet on Los Blancos to…

    Saying anyone is going to be the next Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Dez Bryant, etc. is obviously a tough thing to predict. Johnson is a once-in-a-generation type player with incredible size, speed, and talent not many people in the world possess. Thomas, Marshall, and Bryant are all extremely gifted and talented receivers that are just a notch below Calvin, but are still among the elite receivers in the NFL. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Kelvin Benjamin, the Carolina Panthers’ 1st round pick (28th overall), will join that group of All-Pro…

    The 2014 offseason marked the first season in which the NFL’s fifth-year option was available for eligible players. Though the league’s 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement brought a drastic decrease in rookie salaries, it altered the rookie contract to a four-year commitment, allowing players to enter negotiations with teams sooner than they had been able to in previous years.  With that predetermined four-year deal came a new fifth-year option, which allows teams to delay negotiations with first-round picks by placing a one-year extension (with a significant pay increase in that year)…

    As a 19-year-old born and raised in Buffalo, it is hard to say I have experienced any Buffalo Bills team to necessarily brag about. Though I was alive for our last playoff run I am quite sure I was more worried about escaping my older brother’s Razor Ramon wrestling imitations than the future employment outlook of special teams coach Bruce DeHaven.   However, my lack of successful football fandom has not in any way stopped my father from reciting his many stories of his very own Buffalo Bills.

    Bills 16     Steelers 19 I knew after the decent game we had prior that it was time to see our starters score a touchdown in this one. The game starts with Pittsburgh kicking off and I am shocked when the kick returner is C.J. Spiller. Isn’t he our starting running back? What the heck is Doug Marrone thinking? If this resulted in an injury to Spiller you know Marrone would be on the hot seat. This is one of those calls like the 10 per game we questioned in every game Dick Jauron coached! Spiller received the kick and runs through some pretty heavy traffic all the way to our…

    Bills 20       Panthers 18 Well Doug Marrone showed us he really wanted to win with playing his starters (who needed the work) until the eleven minute mark of the second quarter. The offense looked sharp immediately going down the field with precision. Motivated by running backs waiting to shine, C.J. Spiller ran the first play 14 yards. He then had a second carry for a few. Then we saw EJ finally get the ball to Sammy Watkins and this beauty went for 14 yards and another first down. C.J. then runs for 3 and Sammy catches his second catch for 5 yards. EJ looks like he is in…

Did I say win? Marv Levy did not give a hoot about the preseason and played our stars sparingly to say the least. He knew what we had and just wanted to see and evaluate our rookies.

At present, as it stands, apparently the series has gone down to a 4-match series. The second ODI will be played tomorrow at Cardiff.

    For eight-and-a-half innings, fans mumbled about how the “same old Royals” were back. The attendance of just over 13,000 wasn’t good enough for some. The offense was sputtering, plating just two runs in their last 28 innings. The team looked lifeless, hacking away at balls and making mental mistakes like getting picked off. Then, with one swing, Alex Gordon provided the Royals’ biggest play in the last 20 years. Gordon hammered a hanging slider from Glen Perkins just over the right-center wall for his second-career walk-off homer, propelling the Royals to a 2-1 victory over the…

    Kansas City desperately needed someone to step up, and guide their team through a pennant chase. Who better to do so than James Shields? In seven starts prior to the match against the Yankees, Shields is 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA. Three years ago with the Tampa Bay Rays, Shields did the same thing. In July of 2011, Juego posted a 5.40 ERA, and posted a record of 1-4. Things would turn around for Shields in 2011, just like this year. After posting an ERA of nearly six in July of 2011, James came back in August and September and posted a 2.45 ERA with seven wins and three losses. Though we have not…

    Twenty-four and six! Amazing. It’s been an amazing run. I can’t remember too many streaks like it. Although the 1977 Royals had a few that had to be that good or even better. It begs a big question: are the projections that suggested the Royals were just an average team wrong? The simplest way of evaluating that is to ask: what are the odds that a coin flipped thirty times will return 24 or more heads. Answer: 1 in 1400, approximately. There are 133 sets of 30 games in a 162 game season. So an average team should be able to pop such a streak once every ten or eleven seasons. I…

Kansas City (72-56) stretched their lead in the AL Central out to a full three games by doubling up the Texas Rangers on Saturday night, 6-3. Just three batters into the game, Alex Gordon put the Royals on the board with a towering home run off of the right-field foul pole. The two-time All Star left fielder tied Salvador Perez for the team lead with 15 long balls. Texas got the run right back, and the score remain deadlocked at one until the fifth inning.

    New York, NY– The NFL has filed a lawsuit against the ALS association claiming that they had a copyright on an “ice bath for celebratory purposes.” The copyright was filed in 1985 following a victory of the New York Giants, as they defeated the Washington Redskins 17-3. “We are looking into the violation and legality of this spectacle,” noted ESPN legal analyst Roger Cossack. “The NFL takes their assets very seriously and we hope to shed some light on the situation shortly.” Commonly known as a ‘Gatorade shower,’ the NFL wanted to capitalize on the phenomenon since it…

    Consider all the reasons critics say Qatar shouldn’t have been awarded World Cup 2022 by FIFA’s executive committee 3 1/2 years ago. There’s the heat: The average high temperature in mid-July, when the final is currently scheduled, is 106 degrees, and FIFA’s own technical report branded Qatar’s climate “a potential health risk” for players. There are the allegations of corruption: The Sunday Times of London reported last month that a Qatari official had paid millions of dollars to FIFA voters and influencers in exchange for World Cup votes.

Graham had appealed the Tight End tag the New Orleans Saints placed on him because he felt he was not a tight end and was used as a wide receiver. The difference in the two franchise tag amounts is substantial, maybe not for Jimmy Graham, but for most of us, as a tight end the tag would pay Graham $7.035 million, and as a tagged wide-receiver $12.312 million dollars.
