    26 Jan 2015 | 7:24 am
    Lazio used to get the better of AC Milan in the Coppa Italia. In the late 1990s, and even a few years after that, it was Lazio beating Milan on the way to more trophies. There has always been a unique bond between the two clubs. They shared big players—Alessandro Nesta, Hernan Crespo, Christian Vieri, Jaap Stam—and they were big rivals. The games lost headline status as Lazio plummeted into a sea of financial problems, but the two teams are back at it now, with the Biancocelesti leading Milan (and beating them again) in Serie A this year. They play each other again in the Coppa…

    LeBron James has been back in the Cavaliers' lineup for seven games since taking an eight-game hiatus to rest his ailing knee and back. He's taken the team on a six-game winning streak since coming back, with the most impressive win of the streak coming yesterday against a desperate, relatively full-strength Thunder team. The reason behind the Cavs' recent run of success is pretty easy to spot: Remember that version of LeBron James we saw earlier in the season, the one who couldn't get a bucket at the rim? He appears to be long gone.Read more...

    Over at my other day job, GQ just posted this big fat schlongread from Gabriel Sherman about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. You should head over there and read the whole thing now, because the piece does wonders for anyone who (like me) is looking to hate Goodell even more than they already do. In light of the events of the past week, Sherman's profile is particularly handy in painting Goodell as Patriots owner's Robert Kraft's pegboy.

    Catching up on a variety of issues since I was last “on the air”… Doug Marrone opted out of his job as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills. There was a clause in his contract that said he could do that and be paid $4M this year anyway in the event the team was sold. After Ralph Wilson died last year, the Bills were indeed sold. Early in the NFL coach-shuffling season, Marrone was supposedly on the inside track to take over as the head coach of the Jets but the bloom came off that rose pretty quickly. Earlier this week, Marrone signed on as the OL coach for the Jaguars. That is what you…

    I doubt that many folks would argue that the NFL has evolved its rules over the past 20 years to infuse offense and scoring into the game. I think this is an overall perspective to keep in mind as you look at whom six NFL teams just hired to be their new head coach. There were seven jobs open; five of those jobs went to “defense guys” and the job still open is rumored to be held open to await the defensive coordinator of the Seahawks after the Super Bowl game. Gary Kubiak took over the job in Denver and he is definitely an “offense guy”, but consider the others: Todd Bowles Jack Del…

    The participants in this year’s Super Bowl game are set; the two conference championship games that led to this matchup could not have been more different. The Seahawks/Packers game was full of errors and turnovers; it went to overtime after a furious Seahawks’ rally to come from 15 points down in the final 5 minutes. The Patriots/Colts game was an example of one team dominating the other team and the outcome was not seriously in doubt even at halftime. After dominating the first half of the game, the Pats only led by 10 when they got the ball to start the 3rd quarter. However, the first…

    First, I need to review last week’s less-than-wonderful Mythical Picks. I made 5 picks on NFL playoff games and 4 of them were wrong. The only correct pick was taking the Colts +7 against the Broncos. I came within a replay of having a real shot at my money-line pick of the Cowboys but such are the vagaries of wagering. Anyway, the 1-4-0 record for last week brings the season total to an embarrassingly bad 117-150-5. For the College Football Playoff game, I had Oregon +8 right and the OVER/UNDER pick wrong. Clearly, no one in an even semi-rational state of mind would look at those numbers…

The play in question: a fourth-down pass to the two-yard line by Dallas’ Tony Romo to wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant secured the ball to his shoulder as he landed one foot, held the ball with his left as the second foot came down, then took a third step and a lunge for the end zone with his left arm outstretched. Part of the ball hit the ground, ran up the side of Bryant’s hand, into the air, where he…

Suh has been named to the Pro Bowl four times and as well been elected to the All-Pro team every season including First-Team four times. It is fair to mention that Suh has had his fair shares of lows to go with his highs.

    Former Detroit Tigers Pitcher Max Scherzer formally said good-bye to the franchise and their fans today, in a full-page advertisement in the Detroit Free Press – and with an ad on the home page of Scherzer had the two best years of career with the Tigers (2013, 2014) and was awarded the American League Cy Young Award in 2013. Since being traded to Detroit in 2009, Scherzer posted some eye-popping statistics — including… 3.54 ERA 161 Games Started ~1011 Total Innings Pitched 0.700 Winning Percentage and an unfathomable 9.6 Strikeout Average per 9 innings…

    Embattled New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been dropped by women’s shoe manufacturer UGGs, hitting what many are calling the lowest low and person could ever reach. “In light of the cheating scandal surrounding Tom, we felt it was no longer in our best interests to be associated with him,” said Beverly Montague, president of UGGs America. “We will begin removing all of his ads. However, rest assured that UGGs will still remain on sale at all of the finest women’s shoe stores.” Sources close to Brady say the decision by UGGs has really…

During a 20-minute media session, Brady insisted he had nothing to do with the footballs and said that he had no idea how they got deflated. The massive lie could threaten to derail the quarterback’s enduring legacy as a career-long cheater. “When you think of Tom Brady, you first and foremost think of a guy who cheated to win his only Super Bowls,” said the quarterback. “Well that, and the fact…

That casting choice also functions as a signal about the creators and producers - they are the kind of important people who can get Gladys Knight to do a guest spot on Empire, and she's not the only celebrity they trot out.

    YouTube It’s 2015 so congratulations to the NFL for catching up with the rest of the online world. Today the league announced a YouTube channel featuring game clips, interviews and some of their fantasy football content in a large deal with Google.

Mr. Schroeder said the league plans to actively program the YouTube channel on a daily basis.

But you might notice some similarities. The two songs share a related melody during the chorus, so much so that Petty’s lawyers argued that he should receive a share of songwriting royalties. A judge agreed: according to the Sun, via Consequence of Sound, Petty and co-writer Jeff Lynne, of ELO fame, will get a “12.5% writing credit” for “Stay with…

    26 Jan 2015 | 7:24 am
    Lazio used to get the better of AC Milan in the Coppa Italia. In the late 1990s, and even a few years after that, it was Lazio beating Milan on the way to more trophies. There has always been a unique bond between the two clubs. They shared big players—Alessandro Nesta, Hernan Crespo, Christian Vieri, Jaap Stam—and they were big rivals. The games lost headline status as Lazio plummeted into a sea of financial problems, but the two teams are back at it now, with the Biancocelesti leading Milan (and beating them again) in Serie A this year. They play each other again in the Coppa…

That signing could very well be K-Rod, who over parts of the past four seasons has pitched to a 3.11 ERA with 9.5 K/9, 3.2 BB/9 and 57 saves in 193 2/3 innings for the Brewers. The market for…

Michigan is one of a handful of MMJ states in the country that doesn’t have a regulatory infrastructure in place for the industry. As such, it’s difficult to keep track of just how many MMJ dispensaries are actually operating at a given time. But 180 in a single municipality is a significant increase from…
  • Re-Legalizing the East Coast

    22 Jan 2015 | 5:20 am
    Okay, Vermont is not strictly speaking on the coast, but you get the idea.    Legalizing recreational marijuana production, distribution and possession in Vermont could generate significant tax revenues, but also involves costs and important decisions about how best to regulate the substance, according to a new RAND Corporation study. The report makes clear that if Vermont chooses to remove its prohibition on producing and selling marijuana, lawmakers will have many choices to make about who will supply it, who can buy it, if and how it will be taxed, and how it will be regulated. The…
  • Kentucky May Consider De-Crim

    22 Jan 2015 | 4:20 am
    De-crim is not re-legalization, but any rejection of eighty years of lies and fear -- cannabis prohibition -- in the nations heartland, is significant.   A Senate lawmaker has filed legislation, Senate Bill 79, the Kentucky Cannabis Freedom Act, to decriminalize the adult possession of marijuana in Kentucky. This Act makes the possession of up to two ounces of marijuana a civil violation, punishable by a fine of no more than $75 — no arrest, no jail, and no criminal record. Under current state law, marijuana possession is a criminal misdemeanor punishable by up to 45 days in jail and a…

House Bill 2011, The Cannabis Compassion and Care Act, and its Senate companion bill, SB 9, permit qualified patients to engage in cannabis therapy.

  • Will DeflateGate Impact Super Bowl XLIX?

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:40 am
    Super Bowl XLIX is less than a week away. There will still be plenty of DeflateGate talk during Super Bowl Week, but other topics and storylines will arise? Will any of those stories have an impact on the Super Bowl? Will DeflateGate hurt or hinder the New England Patriots? The Patriots are no strangers to controversy. They dealt with Spygate in the past and were able to keep their winning ways intact. With so much at stake on Sunday, look for the Patriots to focus on the task at hand. The Patriots will have to deal with the defending champion Seattle Seahawks’ imposing defense…

Odell Beckham, Jr., New York Giants Odell Beckham, Jr.  had 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games. His jaw-dropping catches made him a human highlight reel. Not only is he the top in his class, he’s already among the top in the league. ODB averaged 123.3 yards with 11 touchdowns in the final 10 games of the year.

From health and science to social issues; these talks cover a wide variety of important topics and feature some of the most progressive industry experts. One TED talk that stood out to me in particular was Amy Cuddy who talked about how one's body language shapes who they are. While this talk offers practical for those going on a 1st date, a big job interview or asking for a raise at their current job, I can't help but it apply it to surfing.This past week I went surfing and the waves were much…

I bought my last 4/3 Rip Curl Wetsuit in 2010 and have used it until the shoulders were beginning to wear through.

    The second game from Group C will be a cracker.Algeria take on Senegal with both teams needing a result. It's possible that a draw would be enough for both to go through but that would only work if the other game in the group between South Africa and Ghana finishes a draw. Senegal to me look a young fit team that could go along way in this tournament if they can navigate this tricky fixture. Led by former Manchester United and current Stoke City striker Mama Diof and with Southampton's Mane sitting in behind there is buckets of pace in this Senegal team and they will look to exploit an…

The resulting surge in season ticket sales has been cause for optimism throughout the front office, especially in light of the biggest elephant in the room: the possibility of the Chargers leaving town, and the implications of being the only show in San Diego. It would be a situation that is largely without precedent. NFL teams have…

For NFL Twitter accounts, it’s all about fostering meaningful relationships with followers through timely and consistent engagement. Tweeting regularly is a key component of this strategy. Each tweet has the potential to either attract new followers or solidify the relationship with existing ones. That’s why all NFL franchises dedicate so much time and manpower to ensuring that their social media teams keep churning out those tweets. So which team is doing it best at the…

In a season that has been filled with slow starts for Ohio State, its senior point guard was worried Sunday's game against No. 23 Indiana was going to head down the same path many previous contests had gone. “For some reason everybody starts off hot on us, they’re never missing shots," Scott said. "I think the first four minutes they shot 100 percent."  It actually took 6 minutes, 39 seconds of game action for the Hoosiers to miss their first shot, but you get the point. Indiana jumped out to a quick 9-2 lead and was ahead…

The Buckeyes overwhelmed Indiana, 82-70, Sunday afternoon at the Schottenstein Center in what’s the start of a critical stretch to find their conference footing before February. 1 2 F OHIO STATE 38 44 82 INDIANA 32 38 70 In front of a once-tepid crowd invigorated by a comprehensive performance, Ohio State (16-5, 5-3 Big Ten) was powered by good shooting and a pair of freshmen playmakers.  D’Angelo Russell, who's has become the team's go-to scorer,…

      Gate - "A gate or gateway is a point of entry to a space enclosed by walls, or a moderately sized opening in some sort of fence." Yes people, that is the definition of "Gate"....It doesn't mean, 'lets add it to the end of every possible conspiracy ever'....Back in the tricky Dick Nixon days Watergate became a big thing...A big crime...a big story...But it was called Watergate, because that was the name of the damn building where it happened....   So when you talk about the New England Patriots underinflated footballs and call it "Deflate-Gate," you sound like a fucking idiotic asshole!

    After a week of talking heads discussing “deflategate,” essentially a week of lost preparation time for the Patriots, Belichick came to the podium on Saturday afternoon and told the assembled reporters and the NFL to take the whole story and stuff it.  Yesterday, Radatz took the final word on the controversy - at least in my book - but I want to explore a couple of things about Belichick’s press conference because it was a prime time example of The Art of WarI loved it so much, I actually replayed it a few times.      At 2:15, the Patriots announced they would be holding a press…
  • Preseason Versus Final Rankings

    25 Jan 2015 | 7:05 pm
    lege Football, Rankings Commentary on January 24, 2015 at 4:38 PM The Broncos were the highest finishers among unranked teams in pre-season.   I’m including the Horned Frogs since most people had them even higher at the end. I haven’t noticed any major media organization that does this. I guess they just want to be able to come out with new preseason rankings in six or seven months and have people accept them. Surely, I suppose they think, people will have forgotten last summer by then; but they might not forget something six months before, so best not to remind them. I think it’s fun…

    I am a performance video junkie.  In following people on Facebook or perusing YouTube videos, I have watched an abnormally crazy number of great performance videos related to all types of activities. What has been amazing to me about the comments (beside the incredibly inappropriate and/or negative ones) is the frequency of comments about how talented the performer is.  The second most frequent comment is how the viewer wished he/she could do that.These comments provide great insight into the type of mental conditioning that is so pervasive and so counterproductive to success and…

Maybe I didn't do that as well when I was younger.''-Tony Romo, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, after a 24-20 comeback wild-card playoff victory over the Detroit Lions.  Romo provided leadership to the Cowboys with his perseverance, tenacity, composure, and experience.  After being down 20-7 to the Lions, the Cowboys with Romo at the helm, bounced back and took over the game with 17…

  • The Team Virus: Have You Caught It?

    9 Dec 2014 | 8:01 am
    How quickly can a coach lose his influence on the team?   When teams lose, we tend to blame the coach.   Is it fair? Yes and no.  Peer pressure can destroy a team.   Team culture will dictate the outcome.  Culture and work ethic are viral. When you have individual players that negatively influence the team, you lose the team.  Do you have a team virus? As a coach, you want your players to talk, to communicate, to give each other information and feedback about the situation at hand. However, you don't want players to "throw each other under the bus" during…

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

    At some point in the duration of a person’s lifetime, the urge to get fit rises and he gets involved in workouts and fitness regimens. Obesity is not a crime so much as an accident. It so happens that a person’s metabolism level drops owing to lack of exercise both mentally and physically while concentrating on something and failing to look after the body’s needs. Intake of fat without calorie burn is one of the primary causes of obesity and can result in thyroid problems that can increase the condition of obesity to visually abhorrent levels.

    The process of reaching body fitness targets is never easy and requires total sacrifice by both coach and trainee. Many of the activities that you will be involved in when you get a private coach are very technical and therefore require highly trained experts. It is because of this that only the most qualified coach for personal training in Doncaster should be hired. Here are additional reasons delineating why only experts should be contracted.  1) Experts have all the necessary training on exercises that clients should use to get anticipated results.

  • Joe Kelly – In the Mix?

    Michael Passanisi
    22 Jan 2015 | 11:24 am
    (Photo by Mike McGinnis/Getty Images) The Red Sox will apparently go to spring training without a “certified stopper”. Max Scherzer and James Shields would have been hailed as no.1 starters, but Scherzer has gone to the Nats and Shields remains unsigned. It appears, therefore, that the job is up for grabs-perhaps it will go to the hurler who performs the best in Fort Myers. Joe Kelly, obtained from the Cardinals last summer in the John Lackey trade, is seldom mentioned in this role. But it should be considered a possibility. Kelly, a 26-year-old whose mother is Mexican-American,…

    BOSTON, MA – SEPTEMBER 25: Rusney Castillo #38 of the Boston Red Sox makes a catch in center field in the sixth inning against the Tampa Bay Rays during the game at Fenway Park on September 25, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) Last week I wrote about Xander Bogearts probably feeling as much pressure as any Red Sox player entering spring training. Another player feeling pressure, though in a different way, will be 27-year-old Rusney Castillo, penciled in for center field. That position, held down capably by Jacoby Ellsbury before his departure to New…
  • Xander Bogearts – Question Marks

    Michael Passanisi
    8 Jan 2015 | 8:40 pm
    (Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images) If any Red Sox player feels a lot of pressure heading into spring training, it has to be Xander Bogearts. A year ago, he was projected as one of the most promising infielders in the AL. But after a disastrous 2014 which saw both his hitting and fielding suffer, he is now a question mark. Bogearts’ road to the majors was positive at every level. One of only 5 natives of Aruba to play in the majors (Sidney Ponson was the most famous), he was discovered at age 16 by Sox scout Mike Lord and recommended to Craig Shipley, VP for international scouting.

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.

    Dear blog readers, I spent much time to prepare this long and extensive Crystal Palace squad review. Hope you'll enjoy it and give me some hints regarding future tactics. Goalkeepers Wayne Hennessey vs Julian Speroni. Whom would you prefer if you were me? I am going to give chances to both goalkeepers. Perhaps some rotation mode should be instantiated for that.

The Golden State Warriors have exceeded all expectations to this point. They have the best record in the NBA and a 5.5-game cushion in the West. Stephen Curry has evolved into the MVP favorite, Klay Thompson has become a likely All-Star and Draymond Green has become a true stud. The Warriors have a wonderful mix of youth and experience.

Keep it moving, they implore, and let's all get ready for the season's prime game. It will not work. The clouds that covered the Patriots in Massachusetts followed them to Arizona. Because 11 of 12 Patriots' game balls for the AFC Championship were found deflated and none of the Indianapolis Colts' 12 were, the Patriots cannot deflate the scrutiny.

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — In a game with 1,063 combined yards of offense, it was a defensive play that was the highlight of the Pro Bowl. Miami Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes — aka "Optimus Grimes" — was one of the few defenders who really showed up to play in the 32-28 Team Irvin over Team Carter game. J.J. Watt might have won defensive MVP honors, but Grimes' interception was ridiculous. Covering Indianapolis Colts wide receiver T.Y.

    Frank Schwab
    25 Jan 2015 | 9:55 pm

Adam Vinatieri was not a fan. The Indianapolis Colts kicker, one of the most accurate ever and probably the kicker with the best chance to make the Pro Football Hall of Fame someday (Jan Stenerud is the only full-time kicker in the Hall), missed two extra points and a field goal to the narrow goal posts. The NFL narrowed the goal posts from 18.6 feet to 14 for the Pro Bowl. They also had kickers attempt extra…

    I’m sick of everyone making more of the penalty non-call in the Detroit vs Dallas Wild Card game. I’m sick of the talk because even if a penalty should have been called, it did not decide the game. A game is 60 minutes long and we are assuming that... [[ This is a content summary only.

    Skip Bayless of ESPN called Cleveland quarterback Johnny Manziel an “alcoholic liar”.He was criticized by at least one writer for using the word alcoholic to describe Manziel but I think he’s on to something.

  • Balotelli has Liverpool future insists Rodgers

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:58 am
    LONDON, January 26 – Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insisted Monday that controversial striker Mario Balotelli does have a future at Anfield. Speculation over the Italy forward’s career on Merseyside intensified after he was left out of Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Bolton Wanderers on form grounds, although the forwards selected in his place failed to find the back of the net in a goalless draw with the second division club. Since making a £16 million ($24 million, 21 million euros) move from AC Milan in August, Balotelli has managed just two goals in 18…

    MADRID, Spain, January 23 – Real Madrid are being investigated by FIFA as it tries to determine whether the Champions League winners have followed rules relating to the transfer of young players, Spanish newspaper AS has reported. Officials at world football’s governing body want to establish whether Real have breached article 19 of its regulations on the transfer of players. The article prohibits the transfer of players under the age of 18 except in certain predetermined situations. AS has seen confidential FIFA documents on the investigation, which it said had come about as the…

    BATA, Equatorial Guinea, January 26 – Africa Cup of Nations hosts Equatorial Guinea are setting their sights on achieving even more after wild celebrations greeted their qualification for the quarter-finals on Sunday evening. The Nzalang Nacional had to beat Gabon in their final Group A game in Bata to progress and duly did so thanks to a Javier Balboa penalty and a late Iban Edu finish. They finished second in their group behind Congo Brazzaville with five points and can now look forward to a last-eight tie against the runners-up in Group B in Ebebiyin on Saturday. “We only think…

Everything is still up for grabs as group leaders Senegal take on pre-tournament favourites Algeria in Malabo while Ghana and South Africa clash in Mongomo. There are myriad different scenarios as all four sides bid to advance to the knockout stages, although Alain Giresse’s Senegal know that a draw against Algeria will take them through, while a win will ensure  they go through to the last…

    Well it didn’t take long for the Cleveland Browns new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo to raise some eyebrows. The Browns QB position will be the most talked about during the off-season and during the draft process. Brian Hoyer is a free agent and the Browns have expressed interest in bringing him back. Then there is Johnny Manziel who’s off the field partying has a lot of people questioning if he is really serious about his craft. With that being said, DeFilippo added fuel to the fire saying he doesn’t know if the starting quarterback is on the team right now.

  • Rebounding and lack of a star player will doom the Atlanta Hawks in the playoffs

    J Will
    23 Jan 2015 | 10:52 am
    The Atlanta Hawks have been one of the most impressive teams in the NBA this season. The Hawks are 35-8, which is the best record in the Eastern Conference at this time. The Hawks are also on a 14 game win streak, which puts the team in a tie with the 1993-94 team for the franchise record. Head coach Mike Budenholzer will undoubtedly be the coach of the year if his team keeps this up. Many believe that the Hawks will be the team to represent the East in the NBA Finals in June. With that being said, I think that rebounding and the lack of a star player will doom the Hawks in the NBA…

    National Signing Day is two weeks away and the anticipation is getting bigger by the day. Most high school recruits are still taking official visits and trying to narrow down what school they are going to choose. One Florida State recruit is dealing with something a little more serious than the average high school recruit. Brian Bell is in the center of a $100 million wrongful death suit in the state of Georgia. The parents of Kendrick Johnson, a 17-year-old who was found dead inside a rolled-up mat in the Lowndes High gym in January of 2013, allege Brian Bell and his brother – along with…

    8 Jan 2015 | 4:00 pm
    The Missouri State University campus is typically awash in maroon and white, the school’s colors, but these days many students are decked out in orange. That’s because “BearWear Fridays” recently became “Allie Strong Fridays” in honor of Allie Alvstad, a Missouri State sophomore and softball player who was diagnosed with leukemia this past fall, and orange is the leukemia awareness color. Alvstad started the fall of 2014 like any other student after helping her team through a successful season the year before. But in September, she fell ill and was…

    They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and college football is no exception. Forbes recently ranked the most valuable college football teams in the country, and The University of Texas at Austin’s Longhorns took the top spot. Despite a lackluster season, the ‘Horns still managed to take in $34 million in ticket sales for home games and an additional $31 million in football-related contributions. And according to the Forbes report, the team is worth an estimated $131 million. The Longhorns’ value is down 6% since last year, but that is largely due to an increase in…
  • At Mississippi State, the Only Prescription is Less Cowbell

    At Mississippi State University, one of the most unique symbols of the school’s tradition is the cowbell. Cowbells are ubiquitous at Mississippi State football games, where the collective clanging of these instruments can become deafening—so much so that, in recent years, fans have been asked to “respect the bell” and “ring responsibly.” The school even has a whole website dedicated to proper cowbell etiquette. It appears, however, that not everyone has been minding their manners as of late. The cowbell cacophony reportedly has never been louder than it was…

    Are you in a hurry to rush your child’s sports technique development? Before you answer too quickly, let me ask you: Is most of his young life full of structured practices, lessons, and games, with little or no free time? Are you in a hurry to help him improve his skills, perhaps more quickly than he wants to? Are you being sucked into sports specialization? In 1981, psychologist David Elkind wrote a book called The Hurried Child He argued that kids are being turned into adults far too quickly, and described the traumas of kids forced prematurely into grown-up activities and roles.

    Julian Edelman’s touchdown pass brings his passer rating to a perfect 158.3 in the NFL. When the New England Patriots coaches called the trick play against the Baltimore Ravens, Julian Edelman took it in stride. As we now know, it was a play the team had been working on since training camp began. What made the play so successful? Bill Belichick said there was no way to predict the Ravens’ defense on that play, but they weren’t surprised by what they saw. “We had hurt them on first down, gained like nine yards on first down and that created the second-and-short, and…

  • 4 Signs Your Child is Not As Good as You Think He Is In Youth Sports

    Janis Meredith
    7 Jan 2015 | 7:08 am
    We all think out kids are the best. It’s parental instinct. And quite honestly, we should be biased when it comes to our children. But there is a time when you should override your prejudices and face reality, and one of those times is when you are looking at your child’s sports abilities. Very few parents can objectively evaluate their child’s ability in sports unless they’ve played or coached the sport themselves. We are hard wired to respond emotionally to our child’s performance much differently than we respond to another child’s performance. Sometimes the truth lies in the…

    In sports, the goal is to win. Plain and simple. Let’s be honest, it is about whether you win or lose, not just how you play the game. But there is a line that many parents and coaches cross when it comes to winning. And that line is the difference between winning and winning at all costs. Why Winning is Okay Besides the fact that winning in youth sports is absolutely fun, there are some other reasons that winning is really okay: It gives players a sense of accomplishment It gives them a reward for their hard work It helps teams see what happens when they play together It encourages kids to…

    You can like or hate Duke University basketball, but there is no disputing the excellence demonstrated by its coach, Mike Krzyzewski, who today recorded win number 1,000 as the Blue Devils defeated St. Johns in New York's famed Madison Square Garden. I remember the first three  seasons of Coach K's tenure at Duke, when he was battling Dean Smith's vaunted Tar Heels and Terry Holland's Virginia Cavaliers led by three time player of the year Ralph Sampson. After the Blue Devils finished the 1982-83 campaign with a record of 11- 17 which followed the previous season's 10 - 17 tally, I doubt…

    The Super Bowl is a week away, college football is behind us, Major League Baseball's spring training is still down the road a bit, the NHL has their annual goal-fest, otherwise known as an all start game today, so it's only fitting that I take my first look at the NBA. As most of my readers are aware, I don't tend to pay much attention to pro basketball, or even college hoops, for that matter, prior to the middle of February. But with the traditional powers Los Angeles, Boston, Miami and even Oklahoma city struggling, it's probably worth taking a look at the chances for some new faces to…

    The best thing about deflate-gate is that it's kept anyone from asking Richard Sherman questions that allow him a platform to spew crazy, yet in some weird way, interesting comments. What I haven't heard anyone mention, but I'm certain someone may have, given all of the discussion over the inflation of the footballs at last week's AFC Championship game, is if it is such a big deal to the league, why wouldn't they maintain control of the balls throughout the game? I understand that tampering with the footballs is a rules violation of some type, but if it could really tip the competitive…

    I was very pleased to see that the schools in the Big Five college conferences voted almost unanimously for scholarship student athletes to receive full cost of attendance assistance. I've long maintained that there was plenty of money to fund such benefits, especially as the salaries for coaches and administrators skyrocketed in recent years. The only people in the system that didn't benefit fully were the athletes themselves.I'm fully aware of the benefits of a college education, but when you're 18, working your tail off to play a sport and without any walking around money, it's a hard sell…

Seattle somehow found a way to pull out an overtime victory against Packers in the NFC Championship game, while the Patriots deflated the Colts and apparently a few footballs, to win the AFC crown.Let's start with the first game, one that will remain a classic at least until next week, when most fans will be hard-pressed to remember who went winless in Seattle (that was really bad, but I couldn't resist).

    What are some of your goals for 2015? As a player or coach going into off-season I’d suggest that you create meaningful goals that are worth fighting for because life (and your opponents!) will constantly test your resolve and level of commitment. If your team goals, or individual ambitions don’t get your heart racing, blood pumping, butterflies circling, or voice crackling when you talk about them, you may need to go back to drawing board and create some new ones. Why? Because it’s easy to create safe and socially acceptable goals that get a polite pat on the back or an attaboy. Those…

    If you want to be an exceptional athlete, then how should you be acting? How does an exceptional athlete behave and act… on and off the court or field? How does an exceptional athlete approach each practice and training session? How does an exceptional athlete treat his teammates and coaches? How does an exceptional athlete act when he receives constructive criticism or feedback from others? How does an exceptional athlete act when he is not playing his best or loses a game? To be exceptional, you need to be the exception and do more than what would be expected from any other athlete.

You hear about “situational” spots all of the time and they come up in sports all the time. Teams will have a letdown off of a big win or they will have a tough travel schedule. Good teams will step up to play against good opponents and then play down to lesser competition. Every sport’s regular season is a grind and teams aren’t going to give a full effort for every single…

For the days and the miles that I do it alone, I have my music.  Refreshing my playlist is something that gives me extra motivation to get out of bed and it gives me more desire to stay out there when I am doing a 20 miler alone.  I am so picky about my music.  I am also moody about my music, some days I…

However, I just recently bought my 4th pair of Brooks Glycerins in less than a year. So let me start there. The Glycerin 12 is a great update from the previous version. It’s a little lighter, yet has more cushion and it is a bit sleeker. It has what Brooks refers to as Super DNA, the best cushion they have yet to provide. It provides their most plush feel yet, without adding a lot of weight. There are also pressure zones on the…

Instead, if you want to make a lasting change in your life, focus on creating a new habit based on the type of person you want to be. For example, instead of making a general resolution or goal to lose weight, create a new habit based on the type of person you want to be – someone that exercises regularly. Start small, and build on the habit. If you set a goal that is too far out of your comfort zone, like running three miles each morning, you’ll find all kinds of excuses not to follow through. “I don’t have…

Beating Wisconsin in the Big 10 Championship, beating Alabama and then winning the National Title against Oregon is a three game run that will more than likely not happen for another OSU quarterback any time soon. But Cardale valued his education and the opportunity to compete for the starting position this coming season. He began 2014 as the third string quarterback before…

  • Shoulder Mobility: Two Exercises to Improve Your Mobility

    High School Illustrated
    17 Dec 2014 | 11:07 am
    Good shoulder mobility can not only improve shoulder function, but also improve performance and limit injuries. With athletes now specializing in one sport at an early age and many of them increasing their training outside of their sport, their shoulders can lose the flexibility and strength needed to perform at their best. Since most sports primarily use the “pushing” muscles during competition, these muscles can get very strong, but many times at the expense of the pulling muscles. This creates a muscle imbalance and possible decrease in range of motion which can lead to…

    Michigan fought No. 6 Wisconsin to the wire Saturday night at the Crisler Center, but the upset bid fell short. Our Five Key Plays provides a closer look at how the shorthanded Wolverines managed to take one of the nation’s best teams to overtime. 1) Wisconsin run gives it lead at end of first half The Wolverines held a slim lead with three minutes remaining in the first half, but a 9-0 run to close out the period gave the Badgers momentum into the break. Nigel Hayes began the response with an offensive rebound and putback through a foul. No one put a body on the 6-foot-8 forward, and…

I want them to have that mentality.” The Wolverines missed several chances to pull off the improbable victory Saturday night at the Crisler Center. A lead late in the first half became a deficit when Michigan went scoreless on five sloppy possessions. When it stormed back to tie the game at 38 in the second half, the Badgers…

Critics wondering if it’s proper to bother God with prayer about life’s trivialities. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers thinking God cares about the people playing football, but not the game’s result.

  • FAITH & SPORTS MINUTE: Are You Walking with the Wise?

    23 Jan 2015 | 1:47 pm
    The NFL Coaching Carousel has been extra crazy this year, and John Fox’s move to the Bears is especially intriguing. One of the reasons he continues having opportunities as a head coach is that he hires excellent coordinators and assistant coaches. With many of John Fox’s strong coordinators getting head coaching jobs after being on his staff, I think there is something we can learn from him. John Fox may not be the best head coach, but he brings in assistant coaches that make him better. In life, we also need to surround ourselves with great people that bring out our best. The Bible…

  • FAQ: How can I improve my slapping?

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    Recently, I had someone send me a message asking for some slapping advice. I must admit, I was not a slapper and never learned how to do it in a game setting. However… my daughter was a slapper (converted to left and eventually to slap and hit) I’ve spoken with some a number of knowledgable coaches on the topic (including Larry Ray via e-mail) I’ve been alongside a number of players as they learned to slap (helped them through drills, listened to instruction, etc). From these experiences, and from my own observations, here are 5 things that can help you improve your slapping…
  • Fastpitch Performance Trick Most Players Don’t Use

    19 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    You may remember a while back, everyone switched over from static stretching and warmup to a dynamic stretch type warmup/routine. I did too. I think it’s great. However, many players, coaches, and parents forget that stretching can also help repair muscles and maintain muscle/body health. When you dedicate as much time to training as you do, you really do need to be proactive in your recovery as well. If the only time you stretch is during warmup, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. I was guilty of this too. Like many other softball players, my daughter complained of lower…
  • More than praise, your child needs this

    13 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    One thing keeps popping in my social media feeds during this first month of the year. I don’t see many resolutions (thank goodness). But I do see people making proclamations of stepping AWAY from what everyone else thinks they *should* be and moving toward being who they really are. This is something I’m actively working toward as well and something that I believe is huge in coaching. You cannot coach like someone else. You must bring YOUR unique gifts, talents, and strengths to the table. You HAVE them. Use them! The other concept that falls in line with valuing yourself for who…
  • Catching Tips with Megan Willis

    6 Jan 2015 | 2:15 am
    Great catchers make teams better. Period. Pitchers throw with more confidence to a catcher they trust. Your defense, like it or not, receives cues from the catcher on the field. A good catcher can lift your team’s level of play with their demeanor and leadership on the field. A weaker one can bring your team down with nothing more than negative body language. A catcher who lets baserunners advance by with passed balls can really make things tough for your team. No longer does your opponent need to hit or sacrifice to advance or score runners. A weak catcher can be a huge problem! A…
  • Do Nice Guys Finish Last?

    2 Jan 2015 | 8:19 pm
    There was a time when I asked myself this question about coaching, “Do nice guys finish last?” Does positive coaching really work? So often I see rude, obnoxious coaches succeed.  I wondered if coaches could actually SUCCEED by doing everything right, by taking no shortcuts, by following the rules and coaching with fairness and integrity. Or is it true that nice guys finish last as the old saying suggests? Well, yesterday, the first day of this New Year, I spend the day kicking back and watching movies with my kids. One of the movies we watched was When the Game Stands Tall.

  • It’s all about the value not the outcomes

    20 Jan 2015 | 2:34 am
    Let’s consider a hypothesis – in a tennis final between two players you deem to have an equal chance, you have a punt on one of the players because s/he is 5/4 against. Let’s assume you lose your bet. Now tell me – were you right or wrong to have taken the bet? If you’re thinking “wrong because you lost the money” you perhaps need to think again. All forms of sports have uncertain outcomes no matter how certain the outcome may appear to be before the contest starts. So with our example, if your analysis is right and the players were broadly equal, then the match could have gone…

    A caveat: Rafael Addison was my favorite player growing up.  So when Nunes Magician started discussing what off-the-radar player deserved to have his Syracuse jersey retired, I rather easily came to the defense of #12.  As it has, sadly, been nearly 30 years since Addison played, few current fans truly remember him.  But I thought he deserved some recognition. To get the statistics, I had to rely heavily on this website:  But it reminded me that Addison remains at the top of Syracuse’s career statistical lists: #10 in scoring (without the…

    20 Jan 2015 | 9:30 pm
    (AP) When his season was over, when what would be his best and last chance was taken away from him by a strange picked up flag, Dominic Raiola did what he’d done for the past 13 years as the Lions’ starting center: stood in front of his locker and took it. He spoke in barely above a whisper, trying not to disturb the silence in that surrounded the locker room. He gave some thoughtful answers, deflected some dangerous questions and dished out solid quotes. “Like what the [expletive] just happened,” Raiola said of the picked up flag. “But you got to make a decision…

The newsiest part of the season is over. Reporters are already getting bored. When that happens, the speculation steps up to new levels. There’s only one event capable of both handling all the educated and uneducated guess and still making the reporters/analysts/blowhards sound smart: the NFL Draft.

The next season Detroit went 4-12 and picked No. 5 in the draft. Most of Mayhew’s words were focused on free agency. He said he hung on to some veteran guys a year too long.

  • Long Island Native Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame
    19 Jan 2015 | 6:22 am
    It looks like Craig Biggio’s finest achievement wasn’t winning the Hansen Award as Suffolk County’s top running back at Kings Park High. One of Long Island’s favorite sons is now a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. On his third year of eligibility, Biggio received enough votes to be just the second island native, after Red Sox legend Carl Yastrzemski, to earn induction. Biggio, who spent his entire career playing for Houston, was a star in baseball and football at Kings Park. You can read any number of stories about Biggio and his career online, but here’s a boiled down…

    30 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    Tom Cutinella wanted to serve his country. He was a vocal leader as a junior at Shoreham-Wading River High School and would have carried forth his leadership skills in the United States Army if he could. He passed away during a high school football game on October 1, but his legacy is now living on. He also received a scholarship offer to play college football at Army from Black Knights head coach Jeff Monken after his death. It was touching and a true testament to Cutinella’s being. This story was featured on ESPN’s College Game Day the morning of the annual Army-Navy football rivalry…

    Long before Lyle Alzado was crushing quarterbacks and linemen in the National Football League, he was a strong and hard-nosed player at Lawrence High School in Nassau County. A native of Cedarhurst, N.Y., Alzado used to lift weights in longtime Lawrence coach Rich Mollo’s garage while staring for the Golden Tornadoes. He eventually went onto Yankton College in South Dakota and was selected by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the NFL draft in 1971. His life is the subject of “A Football Life” profile on NFL Network. It aired for the first time in November. The documentary airs…

Rob Nelson, a pitcher at Nassau County Community College and at Cornell University, partnered with former teammate and baseball notable Jim Bouton to launch the product in the 1970s. Nelson played with Bouton on the Portland Mavericks in 1977, an independent team founded by Bing Russell, the late actor and father of Kurt Russell, and grandfather of former big leaguer Matt Franco.

    Last Sunday we brewed a beer. We went with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale clone recipe from the Clone Beers book. We haven’t actually brewed anything in about a year, and we we’ve used this recipe before, so went with something relatively simple and familiar to ease ourselves back into it. We used our homegrown Cascade hops for the aroma addition. All the other ingredients came from our local home brew shop. The assistant brewer helps clean and sanitize the equipment.

    The Oneida Change the Mascot campaign has a new ad out asking the Washington ‘Skins to change the name of the team. It’s simple and effective, though I doubt it will sway the minds of those who now see keeping the name as a matter of principle. The Oneida did not get permission from the NFL to use this footage so I don’t know how long this ad will last. Here it is.

    21 Jan 2015 | 11:30 am
    Earlier today I was a guest on NewsTalk with Bruce DePuyt to talk sports. We discussed the Nationals signing Max Scherzer and what that means for the rest of the team. We also covered the Redskins hiring Joe Barry as defensive coordinator and the Fritz Pollard Alliance calling on the team to change its name. We also covered Deflate-Gate, the possible scandal involving the New England Patriots and deflated footballs. Check it out.

    The Washington Redskins have finally hired a defensive coordinator and it’s the guy we thought had been hired back on January 14 — Joe Barry, the former linebackers coach of the San Diego Chargers. Barry replaces Jim Haslett, who was fired after five seasons as defensive coordinator of the Redskins. [Watch this video of Barry explaining what he does.] Barry, who will turn 45 in July, has coached linebackers for the Chargers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the USC Trojans. He was defensive coordinator of the Detroit Lions under his father-in-law, Rod Marinelli, who is now the…

The announcement is expected before MLB Commissioner Bud Selig retires at the end of January 2015. Washington has hosted the All Star game four times, most recently in 1969 at RFK Stadium. The Montreal Expos hosted the game in 1982. The 2015 All Star game will be played in Cincinnati and in San Diego in 2016.

  • Drop The Pro Bowl, Bring In The Skills Competition

    22 Jan 2015 | 12:15 pm
    Last night the NFL had its pro bowl draft with hall of fame wide receivers Michael Irvin and Cris Carter selecting the teams. It was cool to see how these players crafted the teams and who they valued where. However that is the most effort that will go into this game as if you tuned into last year’s pro bowl (not many did) you see that while it’s nice on paper, a postseason all star game in the NFL just doesn’t produce a competitive game. These games are more about joking around and making sure guys don’t get injured, which is completely understandable for the players.

    The NFL season is in the conference championship games, which means 28 of the 32 teams are looking towards next season. Many begin to look toward the NFL draft and produce mock drafts, however I don’t believe in doing them this early with free agency and coaching vacancies still being filled. With that being said, the best available list is very important to some teams and many fans following the draft so with this in mind, here is the pre-combine Barry Sports Report Big Board: 1.

Now that the hire has been made official, here are some things to look for with the Giants defense as far as personnel and scheme: Blitz, blitz and more blitz Spags is a guy who loves to send 6 to 7 guys in passing situations to create mismatches and put the QB under pressure.

    14 Jan 2015 | 11:54 am
    Big congrats to OBJ!  Yesterday, Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants outstanding wide receiver, was named rookie of the year by the Pro Football Writers Association. This news shouldn’t come as any surprise as Beckham’s 108.8 yards per game was a rookie record. His final numbers were 91 receptions, 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games this season. In the process, he may be the first Giant rookie to save the General Manager and head coach’s job – and for that we thank him.

    The NFL off-season is in full swing for the New York Giants – and we’ve started to see some big changes. Ownership has already decided to hold onto longtime head coach Tom Coughlin and in turn, Coughlin has decided to make a change at defensive coordinator, letting go of Perry Fewell. Which leads to the next topic of discussion, who will replace Fewell? The three potential candidates for Fewell’s position are: Raheem Morris, the current Redskins defensive backs coach. Morris seems like he’d be an overwhelming long shot for the position given the lack of connection to…

Found in table salt, foods, drinks and even medicines and supplements, too much sodium is a key factor in high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to kidney disease, heart disease and stroke. To decrease salt intake, here are a few tips: Reduce or, if possible, eliminate pre packaged foods. Microwave meals and convenient lunch boxes contain large amounts of sodium. Cut out cans. Canned foods usually are chock full of sodium, which adds flavor and acts as a…

    Photo by Kiersten Koenig By Otesa Miles Keeping young bodies basketball ready involves tons of physical activity, plus lots of healthy foods. Unfortunately, a 2012 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that many children and teens consume too much salt or sodium which increases their risk of having high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a range of heart diseases. Young people should consume no more than 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. In fact, less is better. Many people think excess salt comes from the salt shaker. However, the main culprit is prepared and…

    Lazio Roma host AC Milan at Stadio Olimpico in an attempt to get closer to the third place that grants Champions League presence. The distance between the fifth and third place is just of two points which has spurred the hosts to life. Both teams lost their previous Serie A matches with the same score 0-1 and this while playing at home. Lazio has one of the best attacking lines this Serie A season, but somehow without Felipe Anderson they failed to capitalize on the numerous chances they created and ended up losing to Napoli who overcame them on the table. Anderson has not been given a…

On a night where past met present, a triple threat match would determine the future of the company and a Royal Rumble match with any number of possible of winners, the stage was set and there was a brass ring to be grabbed.

    Associated Press The Green Bay Packers should be preparing to go to the Super Bowl. Instead they are wondering what could have been. There’s this bad cheese smell emanating from the upper Midwest, and it all starts with the head coach. General manager Ted Thompson might have to start thinking of repeating what John Elway did in Denver several days ago, and get rid of a head coach that’s holding his team back. Mike McCarthy’s play calling was timid and eventually lost the Packers the NFC Championship Game. Six straight running plays wound up giving the Seahawks opportunities…

    Andrew Weber/USA Today The Green Bay Packers advance to their first NFC Championship Game since winning it all during the 2010 season. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers put on a heroic effort in defeating the Dallas Cowboys. Rodgers was harassed by the Cowboys defensive line all day, but even with his strained left calf he threw for 316 yards and three touchdowns. The Ice Bowl Redux lived up to the hype, but what’s next for these two teams? Green Bay prepares for a rematch with the defending champion Seattle Seahawks.

Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers: In what was the beginning to a boring slate of football games, the Panthers mauled Arizona. Carolina pummeled the Cardinals in the running game all day and harassed quarterback Ryan Lindley as well as punter Drew Butler. Arizona had a valiant season but they were finally put out of their misery by a team that will also soon taste the pain of playoff defeat.

Coughlin and company need to solidify their coaching staff. That starts with the league’s twenty first ranked defense. The Giants defense was offensive and Giants general manager Jerry Reese should relieve Perry Fewell of his duties.

    The NFL is down to its final four Super Bowl contenders, and it’s quite a group. All of them are division winners, and each has 13 wins on the ledger. Picking a favorite is tricky. The New England Patriots are a tempting choice, having led the NFL in SRS (“Simple Rating System,” or margin of victory adjusted for strength of schedule), as well as having been one of the greatest dynasties in NFL history. Yet the other three teams have all won championships more recently. The AFC championship game features an old rivalry with a new face. And the NFC championship arguably features the…
  • The 10 Types Of NFL Quarterback

    16 Jan 2015 | 3:00 am
    This weekend, two perennial MVP candidates and two up-and-coming stars will be under center in NFL conference championship games. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are the establishment; Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson are the hopeful usurpers. They’ve all reached the conference title game, in part, because they’re among the highest-performing quarterbacks in football — all falling within a career average Total Quarterback Rating of 59.6 and 70.1.6But that’s just an average, and sometimes averages can deceive. Turning several observations into a single metric like a Total Quarterback…

    15 Jan 2015 | 9:47 am
    Ohio State’s national college football championship might seem to vindicate the playoff selection committee, which chose the No. 4 Buckeyes over two teams with similar resumes, No. 5 Baylor and No. 6 TCU. But there probably weren’t a lot of people in Waco or Fort Worth, Texas, celebrating the Buckeyes’ Monday night win. Instead, Baylor and TCU fans have every right to think their teams deserved the same opportunity.13It has sometimes been stated — I’ve said it myself — that a four-team playoff is inherently flawed when there are five major conferences. The truth is a…

    12 Jan 2015 | 4:11 am
    Saturday’s AFC divisional playoff game featured a matchup between two quarterbacks with clutch reputations: the Baltimore Ravens’ Joe Flacco, who entered the game with a 10-4 lifetime postseason record, and the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady, whose first three playoff seasons all yielded Super Bowl championships. The Patriots got the better of the Ravens after a terrific game, but both quarterbacks played well, with Flacco tossing four touchdowns in a losing effort.A day later, the Denver Broncos’ Peyton Manning would produce just 4.6 yards per passing attempt against the…

    While the wild-card round of this year’s NFL playoffs was wild, a lot of the action followed familiar scripts: Skeptical Football regular Andrew Luck continued to impress in the Indianapolis Colts’ win against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Detroit Lions jumped out to a big lead — uncomfortable territory for gunslinger extraordinaire Matthew Stafford — against the Dallas Cowboys and, sure enough, Tony Manning Romo successfully engineered a double-digit comeback victory — though possibly with a little help from the officials.

Smith was shooting 39% from the field and taking 14 shots per game, 2.5 more per game than any other player on the team. No matter how you slice it, getting rid of a player taking that many shots and shooting that poorly can only increase your team’s…

Those historic four are Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz and Craig Biggio. Martinez and Johnson were the no-brainers here, and it’s almost baffling that they didn’t get 100% of the vote. I suppose some writers figure it’s not worth wasting a vote on a guy who will surely get in, but still, it seems disrespectful to not vote for guys with careers like that.

After leading the Royals to the playoffs for the first time in 29 years, which culminated in an American League Championship, it seemed reasonable for Yost to not want to go into 2015 as a lame duck season. The fact that the deal only ended up being a 1 year extension was curious however. Yost's stock will most likely…
  • Stuart Scott: The Day After

    Sarah Davis
    5 Jan 2015 | 6:17 pm
    It is now the day after the world got the devastating news that Stuart Scott had passed on to greener pastures (or cooler pillows, if you’d prefer). From his cool catch phrases to his sense of pride and his general love for life, Stuart Scott was a great man.   Like most fantastic TV anchors, Stuart Scott had to start somewhere. Scott would take over after Keith Olberman on SportsNight, even though I was under the impression that Olberman wasn’t as skilled. I remember that during my free time, I’d get on the computer and look up clips of Stuart Scott. Why? Because I…
  • A look at the Royals 2015 payroll and what it could mean for 2016

    5 Jan 2015 | 6:33 am
      January 4, 2015 Joe Hayles Royals As someone who has always wished that the Royals would open the checkbook and spend some money to sign the MLB talent they needed to be competitive, now that they are trying to do just that, I’m getting cold feet. While I like that our 2015 payroll is bumped up to around $118m (beyond uncharted territory for Royals fans), and I’m happy that the big money additions are on short-term, one and two year deals, I’m beginning to worry about what will happen if bad things happen this year and we dramatically under perform Mr. Glass’…

  • A Blue Christmas

    19 Dec 2014 | 6:20 am
      It is almost Christmas in America's Heartland, and snow is officially on the ground.  Yet the topic of a majority of people's conversations is not about the Chief's up-coming game with the Pittsburg Steelers which has serious playoff implications.  It is not about College Bowl games or the new playoff series.  It is not even really about college basketball.  Rather the topic I hear on most radio talk shows, news print, and people talking is about the American League Champion Kansas City Royals, and their offseason moves. In years past I obviously…

Nurmi was an introvert runner, which paid more attention to his bulky stopwatch than to his opponents. The King of Runners was the first athlete that believed the records are meant to be broken and there is no limit for the human body.

  • Malaysian Hockey Team Needs New Ideas To Take On The World’s Best

    Ismail N
    26 Jan 2015 | 12:48 am
    In my previous posting, I did mention that the World Hockey League Second Round should be a walk in the park for our national hockey team. None of the teams participating in the tournament is up to our standard which is “world class“, mind you. So, despite the unexpected heart pumping and nerve-wracking semi-final match against Japan, all were smooth sailing for us. We even hammered our opponent in the final, Poland, 8-0. Neil Hawgood and Tai Beng Hai must be smiling up to their ears. I have always maintained that we have a very good hockey team especially at junior level.
  • Has Wayne Rooney Finally Accepted The Role Of A Midfielder?

    Ismail N
    27 Dec 2014 | 12:44 am
    It is well documented that Wayne Rooney was frustrated at repeatedly being used in midfield by Sir Alex Ferguson during the Scot’s time at Old Trafford. He has spoken in the past about his preference to play as a striker and has even asked for a transfer in the final weeks of Ferguson’s time in charge. David Moyes later reverted Rooney back to his preferred role during his ill-fated 10 months reign but under Louis Van Gaal, Wayne Rooney was again asked to play in that deeper role behind the two strikers and he has been simply awesome. More importantly, he looked like he enjoyed…

    Let’s be honest! Manchester United did poorly again in their match against Liverpool. Yet, Louis Van Gaal and his men walked away with a 3-0 win and is now enjoying six successive wins in a row. If Manchester United wins the Premier League this year, then David De Gea must be named as “Player of The Season“. That is of course, provided that he can continue with his current form, which is “Out of This World“. Currently the Spaniard is in a class of his own. Strikers will need to do something special to beat this guy. The picture below best describes De Gea…

    Yesterday was a bad day for our national sports. After Nicol David & Co lost to England in the final of World Women’s Team Squash Championship, it was followed by a series of loses by our badminton, bowling and football teams. I had high hopes for them, especially for our women squash who, a day earlier, shocked top seeds and defending champions Egypt 2-0 in the semi-finals. But, England was just a bit better yesterday. Nonetheless, they still made us proud by finishing runners-up for the first time and put up a gallant fight against seven times champion. Meanwhile, in Abu Dhabi, our…

  • Jon Jones & Cocaine: Who Will These Kids Look Up To Now?

    Bobby Bernstein
    7 Jan 2015 | 7:23 am
    I’m absolutely disgusted after reading the reports on Jon Jones testing positive for cocaine before his fight with Daniel Cormier this past Saturday. No, this isn’t a “holier than thou” post; I understand that no one is perfect. But Jon Jones has been a poster boy for the UFC for quite some time now, with many kids looking up to him. Who will these kids look up to now? On the one hand, it’s good to know that Jon Jones is seeking help and entering rehab, but on the other hand, it’s a shame that he would take complete disregard for his life and career and the…

    We regret to inform you of the passing of one of the greatest sports anchors of all time, Stuart Scott.  Scott passed away this morning at the age of 49. He had been battling cancer for many years, but never once did he show that he had been defeated. No, instead, Stuart Scott always showed his strong side and his enthusiasm in battling the disease. In fact, back in November, Scott tweeted the following: Rumor bout me in hospice. Not True. Airball. Swing & a miss. I continue treatment for C & missed some work but Hospice?No. Fighting? YES! — Stuart Scott (@StuartScott) November 11,…

UFC president Dana White confirmed the promotions plans at the post-event press conference. “I was really pushing to get through this fight and I just had to get through this one and then I could look at the horizon,” Zingano told MMAjunkie.

  • Stoolgate: Romero Refused To Get Up Off of His Stool At UFC 178

    Bobby Bernstein
    27 Sep 2014 | 8:32 pm
    UFC fighter Yolo Romero created quite a stir at UFC 178 with what some are calling “stoolgate” as the fighter refused to get out of his stool following the second round, allowing himself time to recover. His opponent, Tim Kennedy, had Romero nearly knocked out in the final seconds of the second round, and had the round been 10 seconds longer, Romero would have been defeated. Romero clearly intentionally took more than the allotted time to get up from his stool, and his coaches took their sweet time instructing their fighter to get up. Because of this, Romero was able to recover…

    Drama is bubbling in the Miami Dolphins’ locker room yet again, as quarterback Ryan Tannehill is publicly disagreeing with the way coach Joe Philbin failed to endorse the third-year player leading into Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders. Philbin declined to say whether he would keep Tannehill as the starter against Oakland. “Obviously, it doesn’t feel good. It creates a bunch of stir, a bunch of distraction in the locker room — mostly from the outside coming in and guys having to deal with the distraction of it. So it’s not a good feeling.” The…

Einige User berichten von gelöschten Accounts, da sie Far Cry 4 nicht über offizielle Plattformen gekauft haben. Entwarnung für Key-Käufer gibt es bisher nicht. Inoffizielle Keystores werden immer beliebter. Kein Wunder, denn Spiele, die auf normalem Wege um die 70 Euro kosten, sind in den umstrittenen Keystores so gut wie immer deutlich günstiger.

  • Minnesota Twins Extend Affordable Ace Phil Hughes

He will earn $9.2 million in 2015 and 2016 before earning $13.2MM annually from 2017 to 2019. Considering his 2014 numbers, the $11.6 million per year average salary is more than reasonable. If you consider the Twins’ recent signing of Ervin Santana, the extension looks even better. Ryan cut a check to Santana for four years and $55 million – a reasonable price to pay for a proven middle-of-the-rotation starter. But that’s roughly $2 million…

It’s the biggest free agent deal in Twins’ history, which says a lot. It’s a smidge bigger than what Ryan gave Ricky Nolasco this time last year, which says even more.

    Exercise, Training or Activity? How we categorise exercise is a determinant to how we describe it, or even our feelings towards it.  For the most part, people would describe activities such as running, as hard and football as fun. Regardless, people provide the same reasons for why they don’t ‘exercise’, but perhaps it’s our mindset that’s actually the barrier.  Firstly, I don’t like defining activities as exercise.  In my opinion, you are either training or doing an activity; exercise could define either of these, which is the problem.  If your doing something you enjoy and…

But last year, His Airness, surrounded himself with smart people that led to the Hornets making the playoffs.

Detroit Pistons star point guard Brandon Jennings is out for the year after rupturing his left achilles tendon. Jennings went down on a non-contact play in a game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, and was rolling around in clear agony. This is a huge blow to the Pistons who have played much better since trading Josh Smith.

    30 Dec 2014 | 3:10 pm
    Michigan finally got their man. It took some seven years, but two poor hires—Rich Rodriguez (2008-2010, 15-22 record) and Brady Hoke (2011-2014, 31-20)—and an abysmal 46-42 record later, the stars aligned properly for the Wolverines to land Captain Comeback, Jim Harbaugh.   Harbaugh’s time in San Francisco was done after a lackluster 8-8 2014 season with the 49ers that included a falling out with management and an apparently toxic locker room, as per Fox Sports. Michigan was in desperate need of a savior after a wretched 2013-2014, filled with embarrassing losses and PR…
  • NFL Week 12, Infuriating Parity

    The NFL tag line Any Given Sunday has gotten its share of overuse, but in a week where an 0-10 Oakland Raiders team got its first win over the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (7-4), it’s hard to argue with the notion that the NFL has quality from top to bottom.   At the end of Week 12, the only certainties seem to be death, taxes and a convincing New England Patriots win. The Pats (9-2) have rattled off seven straight and have distinguished themselves as the only truly elite team in the league. Vegas odds reflect this as NE currently sits at around 3/1 to win the Super Bowl,…

After amassing an impressive 29 first-half points (Dallas led 73-29 at the half), the Sixers exploded for 41 in the second half en route to a 123-70 loss, their 8th straight to start the season.   Words like “laughingstock” come to mind and though the season is still young, discussions about this year’s Sixers being “the worst NBA team ever” are blooming among NBA pundits, including USA Today’s Mike Foss.

AAU basketball gives college coaches the opportunity to see would be recruits collectively in one location throughout the summer. It's all about exposure and these kids have become marketable commodities. The style of play often resembles that of an All-Star game with not much defense and plenty of ball hogging. There…

    Tottenham are reportedly ready to offer £5m for Burnley striker Danny Ings. Other clubs monitoring the situation are said to be Southampton following Shane Long’s injury in the FA Cup this weekend as well as Chelsea and Manchester City who are both looking to increase their quota of homegrown players. Despite being offered new contract terms by the Clarets, Ings has preferred to keep his options open in his final season at Turf Moor. The 22-year-old’s contract expires in the summer and would cost a new club £3m in compensation at that stage, thus, in essence, making his actual…

I somehow dont feel that was a game that represented the NHL of today, but I also dont think that’s what it was designed to do or be in the first place. Personally, I thought I was just watching pregame warmups for a couple of hours and thats about it. I think the most effort put into the game was by a goalie, Crawford, who really looked like he was trying. Most of the action, not all, but pretty darn close to all of it, looked like a…
  • Dan Quinn Likely Next Falcons HC

    24 Jan 2015 | 8:45 pm
    The news out of Flowery Branch this week has mainly centered around the coordinator positions and various assistant coaches.  Under other circumstances, that would be extremely unusual for a team that doesn’t have a head coach. However, one of the final candidates for Atlanta’s head coaching vacancy is Dan Quinn.  He had a second interview with the Falcons, and the inside word is that it went very well. Seattle’s comeback in the NFC Championship Game is the reason why Atlanta remains without a coach.  Since Quinn is currently with the Seahawks and Seattle remains in the…

    Much has been said and reported concerning the legality of the footballs used by the New England Patriots during the first half of their AFC Conference Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. Let me start this article out by stating that the inflation level of the Patriot’s footballs had absolutely nothing to do with the outcome of the game. New England was clearly and obviously the better team in that game. This is evidenced by the fact that New England led at the end of the first half by 10 points (17-7). In the second half, using NFL legally inflated footballs, they outscored…

        The 2014 fantasy football season is in the books, leaving us time to reflect on what all it brought along the way by handing out the Live 4 Sport Network Fantasy Football Awards for the 2014 season. In 2014, we saw a great class of rookie wide receivers enter the league and deem their selves extremely useful in fantasy.  There were also key players such as Rob Gronkowski and Arian Foster who bounced back from injury the year prior to prove that they were still worthy of a high draft selection. Also, players like Demarco Murray, Andrew Luck and Le’Veon Bell emerged to take the…

    The off season for the 2015 Cleveland Browns is upon us and they find themselves in an all too familiar position. Last place in the AFC North. In the sixteen years since the Browns re-joined the NFL, they have occupied their division’s cellar eleven times. Four straight years and counting and seven of the last ten years. During those same sixteen years, the Browns have had a winning record only twice with a single Wild Card appearance in the post season once (2002). Their average record over those sixteen seasons is 5-11-0. In the 62 years that the Browns have been part of the NFL, they…

      New England Patriots vs. Indianapolis Colts Just a week ago, we predicted that the Denver Broncos would beat the Indianapolis Colts and go on to play the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. We were wrong. The Indianapolis Colts beat the odds as well as the Broncos in their 24-13 win. So, should we reconsider this team as a contender, or was this just a great game for them? The main reason the Colts were able to beat the Broncos was that they held them to just 13 points. Defense wins games. One thing the Colts did right in this game was applying pressure on third downs.

Both teams are coming into this game with a record of 12-4, but all signs point to the Seattle Seahawks having an advantage. The biggest sign of this was when the Seahawks beat the Packers in the regular season 36-16. Russell Wilson looked very impressive in this game and threw two touchdowns with no interceptions. Another huge advantage for the Seahawks is that this game will be at CenturyLink Field, home of the…
