    After the Chicago Bears stunk out the joint at home – again – last week against the Dolphins, there was not a lot of peace and harmony in the Bears’ locker room. People heard loud voices through the door and they were not trying to organize a team clambake for their day off. Brandon Marshall in particular was heard saying more than a few provocative things. Marshall says that he does not regret what he said; he only regrets that people outside the team heard him say what he said.

    In the middle of last weekend’s Keeping Score blog entry by Gregg Drinnan, I found the following tidbit: “When the Kamloops Blazers gave goaltender Bolton Pouliot to the Portland Winterhawks the other day — call it an early Christmas present — it brought back memories of Jan. 19, 1983. That was the day the WHL’s Seattle Breakers traded forward Tom Martin to the Victoria Cougars for a used bus.” To say that my knowledge of the comings and goings in the Western Hockey League is an eighth of an inch deep would be most generous; clearly, the memories he refers to here did not…

    The Percy Harvin trade from Seattle to the Jets generated a lot of commentary late last week, as it should have. The swap has the potential to generate waves in a variety of dimensions. The Jets’ organization is not particularly stable about now. Rumors and intrigues swirl around the head coach and the GM; the team is 1-6 and its “quarterback situation” is not exactly in a tranquil place. With no direct knowledge of Percy Harvin, let me just say that press reports indicate he might not be the easiest person to get along with. If he helps the Jets win a few games, he will be seen as a…

    You want some Week 7 Rankings? Of course, we all do. The Top Five and the Bottom Five haven’t changed too much, but there are some newcomers. The Five in the Middle is where the action is at. Those are teams that are hovering near the top or sinking towards the bottom. Take a look in this week’s TPF Fives. The Top Five #1. Denver Broncos [5-1] Denver has been on a mission since February 3, 2014. That mission: return to the Super Bowl. There is a strong chance this Denver team completes that mission.

    Michael Vick will be forever judged as a man full of mistakes. A star-studded NFL player who made wrong choices along his career path. Michael Vick’s latest mistake might be the biggest one of his professional career. After five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Vick had his choice between the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  At 34 years old, none of the teams saw him as a starter. Plus, his history of injuries have prevented him from playing more than 13 games in a single season.  Instead of a starter, teams were looking for depth and…

So might, as well get in on it, but my rankings will be different. They won’t be judged on stats alone but more on there impact on the game. Meaning if they were innovators, influenced future quarterbacks or brought more eyes to the game, it is not based off top quarterbacks of all time. George Washington: Roger Staubach. He is part of the reason why the Cowboys are so popular the way they are today. Staubach was arguably the first…

Well, have you watched football at all this year? Most teams are floating around 3-3 and it’s been pretty hard to get a handle on the identity of anyone. Dallas beat Seattle, in Seattle! Oakland almost topples San Diego. And Philly silenced the the noise coming out of New York. For the Giants anyways. The Jets deserve the flak they’ve been getting. The Top Five #1.

    22 Oct 2014 | 7:12 pm
    Joe Buck is in his third decade calling the World Series for Fox. The 2014 Series is his first working alongside Harold Reynolds and Tom Verducci. During an anecdote about Joe Panik in the fifth inning, Buck was interrupted by his play-by-play duties. His partners joked they could sleep at night now that they heard the whole story. Buck (playfully) fired back saying, “you know what, shut up, go back to MLB Network?” To borrow a wrestling term, Buck’s “face turn” in the last year or so has been fun to watch.

    Jake Peavy bounced a pitch to Omar Infante during the second inning of Game 2 of the World Series. The veteran Giants righty didn’t like it. He didn’t like it at all, at least from what the Fox microphones and cameras were able to pick up. Infante later doubled to left and scored on Alcides Escobar’s double to right. The Kauffman Stadium crowd drowned out whatever reaction Peavy had on the hit that put the Royals ahead 2-1 — their first lead of the World Series.

    DEAD MAN WALKIN' AIN'T RIGHT, BECAUSE THAT IMPLIES YOU CAN MOVE FORWARD Congratulations to Virginia Tech for giving their lives over to Chryst last Thursday. You'd think Heinz Field wouldn't be such a tough place for the coach who blocked two punts at the Battle of Verdun. That's Baylor's fault for going to West Virginia during bear season.

    JUST FOLLOW THE BLIMPIE The public argument over the end of Notre Dame-FSU (and the "penalty" called against the Fighting Irish) has focused on the surface question: was offensive pass interference committed or not? But, much like the penalty itself, that debate is a  F A L S E  F L A G. No, the real question is who would have incentive to cheat Notre Dame, America's finest academic, athletic, and morality institution, out of a deserved victory? The web is tangled and corrupt, but we must unravel it as S E E K E R S  O F  T R U T H. This is David Epperley, the head referee who oversaw…

More specifically, there’s the Giant Microbes plush Ebola toy, which turns the deadly disease into a cute and cuddly learning tool that helps kids understand that while the furry fella might be a fun imaginary friend, it also represents “the T. Rex of microbes.” It sounds crazy, though, that a company is actually selling a stuffed Ebola toy, but it’s completely true. Well, it’s kind of true, because Giant Microbes…

Unlike the embattled and recovering (alleged?) substance abuser Ford, Benz claimed that she has nothing to hide, as she doesn’t even smoke cigarettes let alone crack.

    The last time that I went to Chicago, I really wanted to go to The Wiener’s Circle so I could get a hot dog and be screamed at by the staff, because it looked like so much fun that time that Jack McBrayer and Triumph went there for Conan. I didn’t get to go, though, and I was upset about it, because it’s fun to be yelled at by people who are “pretending” to hate you. The reason that I bring that dumb anecdote up is because this video of a tour guide losing her sh*t in San Francisco makes me hope that she works for a company that uses the same business model as The Wiener’s Circle.

Now in his rookie season with the Giants, Williams has shown himself to be an intriguing running back who has good speed and power.

At least six clubs from Japan’s top league showed interest in Johnson, but the Carp submitted the highest bid, according to Wolfson. The move appears to work out for both the Twins and Johnson, as Wolfson reports in a followup tweet that the Twins will receive a six-figure sum for selling Johnson’s rights, while Johnson himself will have a seven-figure salary in Japan.

  • Free Agent Profile: Rafael Soriano

    Jeff Todd

    The Nationals gave Rafael Soriano $28MM (half of it deferred) over two years and sacrificed a draft choice to install him at the back of the pen of one of the league’s most talented rosters. Though he was a reasonably productive pitcher, however, Soriano was not the force that Washington had hoped and he ultimately ceded his closer’s role late in 2014. Now entering his age-35 season, the Scott Boras client will presumably look to score another multi-year deal, but faces market competition in maximizing his dollars. Pros/Strengths Soriano actually had a stronger overall campaign in…

As MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez explains (also on Twitter), the Angels’ 40-man roster is full, but Williams will head directly to the 60-day disabled list, as he’s coming off knee surgery, so he therefore does not require a 40-man roster spot at this time. The 28-year-old Williams made his big league debut with the Rox this season, appearing in seven games and collecting 16 plate appearances. He picked up three hits in 14 official at-bats, including his first Major…

Burton will receive a $200K buyout and hit the open market this winter. Burton, 33, came to the Twins prior to the 2012 season on a minor league deal after shoulder surgery had temporarily derailed his career with Cincinnati. (The return of former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky to the Minnesota front office may have had something to do with the team’s interest.)

    Sporting events can be extremely profitable for the right company or entrepreneur. Additionally, sporting events offer a worthwhile sponsorship opportunity to marketers who want to reap the benefits of being seen by attendees. Unfortunately, getting started won’t be easy – nor will it be cheap. After initial costs and plans are laid out, there’s even more to think about in terms of hosting, promotion, permits, zonings; and the list continues on. If you think you can handle all the dilemmas that may (and probably will) arise, you’re ready to host your own sporting event. Sporting…

Sports now goes well beyond fans, sponsors, players, coaches and venues.  Factually, we can very much have sports’ how and when we like; the truly personalized experience.

    The 2014 Ryder Cup is just around the corner with final team selections now announced. Play is scheduled to begin on September 23 at the Gleneagles Hotel golf course in Perthshire, Scotland. The event is the most counter-intuitive in the game of golf because it is a team event based on match play. This takes away the convenient story line for news broadcasts that love to discuss a single winner, who politely doffs his hat at the trophy celebration or bestows a photographic kiss on the brass cup he just won. The headlines also tout the enormous sums available in prize money at various events.

They finished second in the league behind only Boston, who edged them out by one point. They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup. At first glance, people just see the massive point totals coming from the Ducks’ Superstars – Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. What most people do not notice…

    20 Oct 2014 | 6:04 am
    Tweet I’m always on the lookout for new, out-of-the-box ticket promotions, so when I got this email campaign from Rutgers, it definitely peaked my interest. Essentially, if you purchase a ticket at the “UWin” price for the first non-conference men’s basketball game, you get a free ticket to the next home game, and you can continue to get free tickets to each subsequent non-conference game as long as Rutgers wins. Historically, Rutgers men’s basketball has not been a very competitive program, so this is an interesting way to drive interest in these early…

You get the dialogue below between myself and Brian Connolly, a former MBA classmate of mine and founder of Victus Advisors. Here is our take on ESPN’s suspension of Bill Simmons. Brian: First of all, let me preface this debate by saying that I’ve never been much of a “respect authority” and “toe the line” guy. There’s a reason I started my own company!

    Here goes nothing. I'm not predicting who wins shootouts or not, so this is regulation points only. Add in six points to every team if you want to give them all an average number of shootout wins. Since coaching and goalie changes are typically the biggest wild cards (i.e. Bishop/Cooper in Tampa and Roy in Colorado last year) when it comes to predictions, figured I'd note those as well. And

    HYDERABAD: A fighting Saina Nehwal failed to stop Shixian Wang in the quarterfinals of the Denmark Open Super Series Premier in Odense on Friday. The Indian, who won the title here in 2012, did all that she could but the Chinese grew stronger towards the end to notch up a 22-20, 21-15 victory. Trailing 17-20 in the first game, Saina saved three game points before Shixian managed to squeeze past with two winners. Bolstered by her late flourish in the first game, Saina, who has a 5-3 career record against Shixian, got off to a great start in the second. She opened with a 5-0 margin and looked…

    Living in a materialistic world, it’s not uncommon to hear people joke that happiness is when you are rich. That would make sense, right? Especially if you consider that some people buy things to make themselves happy and in order to buy things you need money. So lots of money = lots of happiness. If that theory is correct, how come there are so many rich people who are unhappy? Sure, money can allow us to buy many things and even win friends and pay for surgery to make us look younger on the outside, but it doesn’t buy good health which is a key element of an optimal lifestyle.

It was the most wins for Boston since 1986. The Sox were paced by two men with tremendous seasons. Pedro Martinez went 23-4, capturing a unanimous Cy Young.

The stats are more baffling when you examine the 2013 totals, including 97 victories and a World Championship. The team was picked in spring training for 90 wins and ended up with 71.

The latest disappointment is De La Rosa, who has faded badly after a good start. But numbers do not tell it all. Between them, the four hurlers have 19 quality starts. Though not a huge number, it shows they have had some good moments. Another factor is the length of their seasons. Of the four, only Workman has put in…

  • NBA Eastern Conference Power Rankings

    John English
    22 Oct 2014 | 12:37 pm
    I’ve come up with my own pre-season power rankings, and there’s actually a little method to my madness. I looked at how the team did last year, what roster changes they’ve made, what coaching changes they made, what injuries we know about right now, where their current roster lands on #NBARank, and the team’s SCHOENE projected records. So here’s one man’s opinion on how the season will go. 15. PHILADELPHIA 76ERS (13-69) – They have Nerlens Noel and nothing else. Michael Carter-Williams is expected to miss half the season. When your fourth-best player…
  • How the Utah Jazz fared in NBARank

    John English
    22 Oct 2014 | 12:36 pm
    The #NBARank is a fun “one committee’s opinion” piece that starts a conversation. Sure, they’ll be wrong on some projections, overvaluing some and undervaluing others. They undervalued six or seven players on the Suns team last year, because who knew new coach Jeff Hornacek was going to lead almost all of them to career-best years? So now that’s I’ve got the emphasis on the subjectivity out of the way, let’s dive in. 47 – Gordon Hayward 90 – Derrick Favors 118 – Trey Burke 154 – Enes Kanter 162 – Alec Burks 173 –…
  • New Utes Shine in Men’s Basketball Scrimmage

    Impressive on paper, the newest University of Utah Runnin’ Utes did not disappoint when they hit the shiny new floor at the Jon M. Huntsman Center Tuesday night. You might have expected the standouts to be highly recruited freshmen Kyle Kuzma or Brekkot Chapman. Instead it was a young man from Borah High School in Boise, Idaho who looked the most polished of any newcomer. Point Guard Isaiah Wright controlled the reigns for his side when he was on the floor. He knocked down several outside shots and easily drove the lane to set up open looks for his teammates. I’m not sure this is…
  • Utah Utes Football vs USC: Preview and Prediction

    Jason Hodges
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:12 am
    This weekend’s matchup against USC promises to be one of the toughest challenges the Utah Utes have faced so far this year. While I think the Utes have a shot at every game left on their schedule, I think they matchup particularly well in this game. The defense will put pressure on Kessler and stifle the Trojan run game and the offense has the tools to put up more yards than they have against any Power 5 team so far this year. With the way Boston College ran on USC, I’d like to see Travis Wilson get the zone read and Booker into action early and often with some guest appearances from…

  • Royals rally for Game 2 lead makes Hunter Strickland angry

    Craig Goldstein
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:43 pm
    The Royals rally as the Giants get angry. In what was a tense game until the sixth inning, the Royals found their offense, putting up five runs on the back of two singles, a walk, a double, and a home run. That doesn't mean all the tension was gone though, as Hunter Strickland's raw display of emotion set off the Royals a bit. Kansas City drove Jake Peavy from the game with a leadoff single from Lorenzo Cain followed by an Eric Hosmer walk. Bruce Bochy called upon Jean Machi, but Billy Butler was intent on reprising his role from the first inning, where he drove in Lorenzo Cain with a single.

He throws hard enough, that it might not seem fair. That's what ESPN's Jayson Stark thought, anyway. Eight fastballs for Herrera in that inning.

    Liverpool are reportedly close to launching a 30million bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi as they continue to chase the Argentine international. Lavezzi has been linked with a move to Anfield for the majority of the calendar year but a potential transfer in the summer never materialised. The 29-year-old has been left in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani since joining PSG in 2012, netting just 12 goals in 60 Ligue 1 matches, although nine of those came last season.

The Portugal forward has now scored 20 times in all competitions this season and, with Liverpool reeling from his brilliant blast, France striker Karim Benzema then struck twice to kill off the…

    PRETORIA, October 22-The mother of Oscar Pistorius’s girlfriend insisted she did not want “revenge” Wednesday, the day after the disgraced South African athlete was handed a five-year jail term for shooting her daughter dead. June Steenkamp told British broadcaster ITV that she was “settled” with Pistorius’s sentence for killing Reeva Steenkamp, even though it could mean he is out of prison and under house arrest after 10 months. Looking pale and holding her husband Barry’s hand, she added: “We don’t want revenge, we want a fair punishment…

    Golf legend Jack Nicklaus knows he it feels to be asked to sign autographs for fans. Nicklaus has been around Florida State’s program more than usual due to his grandson Nick O’Leary being on the team. With the school looking into whether or not Jameis Winston got paid for autographs, Nicklaus claims that he supports Winston. In fact, he says he can relate to Winston when it come to signing autographs. “I wonder how many autographs I have out there. Every game I go to I sign, probably 20 or 25 (people) and four or five each. Start adding that up. And he’s a lot more available…

    New York Giants QB Eli Manning still believes in his teammates. After being a little nervous about the new offense that he had to learn, the Giants have been impressive on that side of the ball for the past few weeks. But after the loss to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, the Giants fell to 3-4 which sent fans into panic mode. But unlike the fans, Manning has taken a different approach and believes that his team still has time to get it together. “There is a ton of football,” Manning told reporters. “If we handle our business and start winning games, we have a shot to be OK and…

  • At Mississippi State, the Only Prescription is Less Cowbell

    Stephanie Farah
    14 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    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…

    How do you define the soul of a champion? It is difficult to define and yet we know what it looks like; we see it when we watch Roger Federer, Dwyane Wade, and Derek Jeter. One thing is pretty obvious: there is more to every champion than just skill and strength; there is also something inside that drives him to use his skill and strength to make him a success.

Becoming a great basketball player is so much more than just refining the skills that are on display on the court. While a combination of hard work, practice and natural talent does go a long way in helping to develop a player, true greatness in basketball is achieved through developing the “intangibles” as well— those traits that aren’t easily identifiable, but are the most important for reaching success in the sport.

  • How Big of a Problem Are Youth Sports Injuries?

    Jackie Bledsoe
    9 Oct 2014 | 7:24 am
    I recently learned that a player on the youth basketball team I coach sustained a concussion when he was a few years younger (non-sports related). While he is fine now, has been checked out by the doctors, and is cleared to play, it concerned me. My mind immediately flashed back to play in our spring league, when it seemed like we had a number of kids repeatedly fall, bump their heads, take a blow to the face, or even have a busted nose. One of which was my son who fell on his eye and almost immediately had a golf ball size knot on his eyebrow. I kept trying to remember if this particular…

    Things are starting to take shape in the NFL, as Dallas' defeat of Seattle substantiated that the Cowboys are the real deal, at least to this point in the season. In a division that was thought to be one of the weakest before the first game was played, we now find two NFC East teams at the top of the NFC, with Philadelphia joining Dallas at 5 - 1. In the other conference, San Diego has emerged as a contender to Denver as the class of the AFC. As for the rest of the league, with the exception of Washington, Jacksonville, Oakland and Tampa Bay, everyone else is fighting to emerge from the…

If they get through that gauntlet, then they’ll be facing an SEC East foe in the conference championship game.

    Not as much turmoil at the top as last week. With number 2 playing number 3, someone in the top five had to lose. I feel good about the Oregon, USC, Georgia and Baylor picks when it was fashionable this week to go the other direction. Mississippi State is certainly in the driver's seat, but games against Arkansas, Alabama and Ole Miss still loom large for the Bulldogs. We're barely at halfway in the season and there are only five Power 5 unbeatens, and two of those have to lose since in addition to the battle for Mississippi to close the regular season, Florida State hosts Notre Dame this…

    Some heads definitely turned when ESPN chose to broadcast a High School football game this fall on it’s primary channel (not ESPN 2 or 3).  The game showcased two of the top teams in the country, Saint John Bosco (Bellflower, CA) vs Bishops Gorman (Las Vegas, NV). There is no doubt that High School football is becoming more competitive and exciting to watch.  The skill level of many High School athletes is increasing as more private coaching and access to online training are readily available.

  • Receiver Skills Are Many, Getting Off The Jam is One

    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…

    Free Sports Picks - Predictions Against The Spread

  • NFL Betting Trends Week 8

    Cole Ryan
    22 Oct 2014 | 4:09 pm
    The one thing that is a constant in the National Football League is that it is a quarterback driven league. The league strives to protect them and they are the most familiar face on nearly any team. They always get paid a ton and if a team has a good quarterback, it is as good as gold. That is why when a football handicapper is betting on a team they have to take the quarterback into account. The point spread on a game will adjust if the signal caller is out, so it is vital to know as much about a quarterback as possible. NFL betting trends work the same way. They are useful and should be…

    The smart NFL handicapper is always looking for an edge when betting on a football game. These advantages come in many different forms depending on what week it is and what scenario is unfolding as the week approaches. One of the wagering angles that have been successful over the years is betting against road teams in the NFL. Regardless of the record of the team, playing on the road in the National Football League is a difficult endeavor. In week seven of the NFL the home teams dominated with a 12 -3 straight up record, but they were only 8-7 against the spread (ATS) on the week. There was…

  • NFL System Picks Week 8

    Allen Moody
    22 Oct 2014 | 3:59 pm
    The advantage of betting early worked out for us last week, as we caught the Lions and Saints under 48.5, a game which moved to 46.5 by kickoff and landed on 47 after an improbable turn of events that saw Detroit win 24-23 with two fourth-quarter touchdowns. The win pushed the record to 9-3 for the year. This week’s system is a bit similar in that we’re looking for a home favorite that was defeated by double-digits in their last game and then had their bye week. The team that falls into that category this week is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who were getting their butts beat pretty good by…

I definitely loved the spectators this year at Boston, they were excited and they were loud.  However, if I had to pick a marathon I have done that I would say had my favorite crowd, I would pick Chicago without a doubt.  There was literally not a moment on the course when there weren’t rows and rows of people. …

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The United States Olympic Committee today announced the hiring of Kathleen (Kacie) Wallace as the organization’s new athlete ombudsman.

    20 Oct 2014 | 12:36 pm
    The Washington Redskins’ 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans yesterday was desperately needed but difficult to watch at times. On any given play, fans saw brilliant design and execution or baffling mistakes and lack of discipline. It was like seeing a live version of the book Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. For anyone who doesn’t remember, Dr. Jekyll is the main character’s good friend. Mr. Hyde is his evil alter ego. For example: Hyde play: The game began with an Alfred Morris run and, even though the play went to the left behind Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams, right tackle…

That may be a bit perplexing but this team has all but shot whatever BB’s out of their toy gun that they had. Now it’s time to be a “real” organization and to play and develop the younger guys on the roster. Get them on the field and let them take their lumps and hope they get better before next season comes around. At this point, the team is 1-5 and going nowhere in a hurry. Let head coach Jay Gruden now become the true face of the franchise. He should take a hard look at tackle…

  • Ohio State Moves Up In Polls After Rutgers Rout

    srpatterson
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:56 am
    The Ohio State Buckeyes moved higher to number 12 in the coaches poll after routing Rutgers Saturday in the Ohio Stadium. The poll released Sunday is disappointing to Buckeye fans who are looking to move into one of the top spots before the season comes to an end. Rutgers wasn’t much of a challenge for OSU who finished the game with an impressive 56 points only allowing the Scarlet Knights to score 17. The BCS no longer includes the Coaches poll in calculating who plays for the National Title at the end of the year so it is irrelevant for the most part.

Buckeyes are also still considered one of the contenders for the top spot in the game despite their loss to Virginia Tech last week. The Kent state Golden Flashes on the other had, have had a pretty good run in the past but don’t play the level of competition or recruit the level of player that the Buckeyes do.

    To most of us, the net on a tennis court divides the physical space between the opponents; the place where they move and play, a boundary to define whether a ball is in or out. For Tommy Paul, one of the nation’s top teen tennis players, the net demarcates the psychic space of strategy, mental toughness, and a place where his dreams are fulfilled. “He has always liked to compete, and he hates to lose,” explained Tommy’s mother, Jill MacMillan. She continued that “Tommy is pretty good at dissecting his opponents and constructing points.” These words are from…

    Jim Spier has been a fan of track and field since he was a high school student in the late 1950s. When he attended track and field events as an adult he got interested in the Junior events (under 20) and noticed that the Junior teams did not represent the makeup of the top high school track and field athletes in the nation. Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process. What Jim and Mike learned is that many young high school athletes could not advance to higher level sanctioned events. On their own, they launched an effort in the mid…

    High School Illustrated
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:24 pm
    Strength training is a vital part of a balanced exercise routine that includes aerobic activity and flexibility exercises. Regular aerobic exercise, such as running or using a stationary bike, makes your muscles use oxygen more efficiently and strengthens your heart and lungs. When you strength train with weights, you’re using your muscles to work against the extra pounds (this concept is called resistance). This strengthens and increases the amount of muscle mass in your body by making your muscles work harder than they’re used to. Most people who work out with weights typically…

With the seconds ticking down in the first half of the Wolverines’ game against Michigan State on February 23rd, Caris LeVert caught a pass and immediately elevated for a three from his sweet spot, the left corner. As the ball arced toward the hoop, the guard turned and began sprinting back to the locker room. He didn’t need to keep watching to know the shot was going to drop. LeVert finished with 23 points that afternoon as part of a breakout sophomore campaign that saw his transformation into…

(Photo: Dustin Johnston) Zak Irvin was Michigan’s sixth man last season, but he never had trouble making himself noticed on the floor. When Irvin checked into the game he was ready to do one thing: shoot, and then shoot some more. Irvin shot the ball on 25.9% of Michigan’s offensive possessions while he was on the court. That’s more than Nik Stauskas, Caris LeVert or Glenn Robinson III, the focal points of last year’s offense. If…

The last two seasons, the Wolverines have led the nation in adjusted offensive efficiency, operating at such a high pace in 2013-14 that they finished with the best recorded mark in Ken Pomeroy’s history. Michigan returns plenty of talent from last year, including preseason All-Big Ten team member Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, and Zak Irvin. Plus, the Wolverines should see immediate offensive contributions from 4-star forward Kameron Chatman. All told, John Beilein has said this may be his…

    I’ve been keeping myself quite busy over the last few weeks. First of all I’m back on training after I recovered from North Shore Marathon, but more - we’ve planned a trip for 3 weeks in a row. I must say, it is little challenging to manage training schedule while traveling, but I think I’m getting better at it ;).

    This post was in my backlog for a long time, but there was always something more important to do. Meanwhile I’ve moved around the world and raised my fitness to the point it has never been before, my blood results were never better and my VO2Max sits around 60 (which is great considering almost 10 years of smoking). But, couple of years ago I got scared a little and had my heart tested.

    He’s scored 20 goals in a season four times. He’s notched more than 60 points twice. Yet he’s resigned to press box purgatory, watching guys eight and 10 years younger fill his spot. Before Saturday, Stephen Weiss hadn’t played in an NHL game since December 10th. The past two years, he’s missed 66 percent of the games his team has played in. Most of that is due to injury, but Weiss is only 31. All accounts say he’s finally healthy and has plenty of energy. There just isn’t a spot for him.

Games in this league are…” Caldwell shook his head. “…are, uh, are crazy.” When it was 23-10 I was sitting with a friend who had grown up a Lions fan but had moved out of state. He still paid attention, but became apathetic to actually watching the games. “At a certain point they have to show me something,” he told me. This game was not that.
  • Red Wings rumor roundup: The latest on Tyler Myers and a list of some other defenseman Detroit has interest in

    Every Sunday I’ll bring you a recap of all the legitimate Red Wings-related transaction and signing rumors from the previous week. I see all this stuff anyway. I figured I might as well share it with you. • The Red Wings inquired about acquiring Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers, according to TSN’s Elliotte Friedman. The Sabres wanted Anthony Mantha. Detroit said no. Talks fizzled after that. TSN’s Darren Dreger told a Toronto radio station that he expects Myers to be moved, but maybe not any time soon. TSN’s Bob McKenzie also said that Detroit was one of many asking…
  • The Book On: Gustav Nyquist, the worst shootouter in Red Wings history

    Mike
    17 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Gustav Nyquist is the absolute worst, and he’s extending his lead. Despite being one of the Red Wings’ most skilled players this side of Pavel Datsyuk, Nyquist’s shootout numbers are the lowest ever seen in a Red Wings uniform. Before Nyquist came along, no Red Wing had more than four shootout attempts without a goal. Nyquist is 0-for-6 after missing the net against Boston on Wednesday. Among those who have better shootout numbers than Nyquist: Tomas Holmstrom (1-for-4), Niklas Kronwall (1-for-2), Patrick Eaves (2-for-6) and Drew Miller (1-for-2). Nobody really needs the…

Nobody wants the Cardinals to win again. The Giants, I mean, 2012. The bandwagon options were the Royals or the Orioles. At least the Orioles have made four playoff trips since they last won it all.

    Another intricate sports story and another connection to Long Island. Did you know the founder of Big League Chew grew up on Long Island? 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.

    Well, the title pretty much tells the tale — Washington Nationals skipper Matt Williams has been named the Sporting News National League Manager of the Year in his first season with the club. Mike Scioscia of the Los Angeles Angels won the award in the American League. It’s a good start to Williams’ managing career, since 2014 was the first season he’s been a skipper in the big leagues.

    BLUE CHIP STOCK OF THE WEEK KAI FORBATH — The Washington placekicker had to fight to hold on to his job in the preseason, but it appears the team made the right decision. Forbath has made seven straight field goal kicks — including yesterday’s game-winner — since his terrible 33-yard miss in Philadelphia back in week three. For the season Forbath is 11 of 12 on field goals [91.7 percent]. Five of Forbath’s last nine kickoffs have gone for touchbacks and on the season teams are averaging less than 19 yards per return on his kickoffs. In other words, Forbath is one…

DJax had just beaten the Titans’ secondary moments earlier, but the long reception was negated by a hands-to-the-face penalty against C Kory Lichtensteiger — one of several big plays negated in this game by stupid penalties on the Skins. Not long after the penalty, though, Jackson again beat the Titans secondary and McCourty had to reach out and grab…

    Being requested by my young cousin, an aspiring shooter, I agreed to accompany him in his pursuit to find a 1911 pistol. Kimber and Springfield were the two names that immediately struck me. I remember my father possessing a Kimber which has always been very dear to his heart. My cousin, son of an ex-army man, was particularly interested in buying something that was very familiar with the war veterans. We had initially zeroed in on the plain-Jane version of Old Slabsides from Springfield 1911 pistols. But while doing our online research on the subject, we found Kimber proclaiming: On the…

    This is a big question: which optics should you choose for your long range weapons? The first thing that you do on picking up a rifle scope is to look through the reticle and put it on target. While we are discussing about the long range shooting, it is important to note that these involve shooting targets at unknown distances and even while on the move. This kind of shooting is found in both military and sports. Whatever the field of application, the most important requirement for this type of shooting is the rifle scope.

  • Kimber .22LR Bolt Action Rifle – A Review

    admin

    The most essential quality in the hunting rifle is that it should be reliable and suitable for the owner. Thus, a prospective buyer should make a list of possible models and then visit his or her local gun shop and try each. Keep the rifle on your shoulder, operate the action, switch the safety on and off, dry fire the rifle. Then buy the one that fits best. Stock fit and ergonomics are important, so if a recommended rifle does not fit you, do not buy it. Even the best rifles in the market, like, the Kimber hunting rifles, should be tested prior to purchase. Although a number of hunting…

    “Playoff Implications” is a phrase you usually don’t hear until the final weeks of the NFL regular season, but almost every regular season game has playoff implications. In the early going, however, it can be difficult to figure out just what those implications are, and how much is riding on each game.Most other major sports leagues play a greater number of regular season games, and thus the playoff picture in those sports evolves in a more incremental fashion. The pace can seem glacial at times for MLB, and inevitable and foregone when it comes to the NBA. But with just 16 regular…

I lived in Hawaii, where the closest thing to a home team we had was the Pro Bowl — which pretty much made me a Dallas Cowboys fan. I griped when it seemed like the Miami Dolphins were on TV every week.But that changed on Nov. 27, when I watched the Dolphins come back from a 17-0 third-quarter deficit against the New York Jets, culminating with Dan Marino’s legendary “Clock, Clock, Clock” play with 30 seconds left that led to the game-winning touchdown. It made me a Dolphins fan for life.5 It blew my young…
  • Nine Managerial Decisions That Helped Decide Game 2 Of The NLCS

    Jonah Keri
    13 Oct 2014 | 10:53 am
    Baseball is, fundamentally, a game of probabilities — measurable probabilities. We can estimate the likelihood that a player will get a hit based on all kinds of factors — whether he bats right- or left-handed, whether the pitcher is right- or left-handed, the size of the ballpark, the quality of the defense on the field, and many other variables. Hell, we can do even better than that. Using the prevailing run-scoring environment of any era, we can determine the average number of runs likely to score using any permutation of runners on base, and outs.All of this information has…
  • On Deck: A Sabermetric Broadcast

    Neil Paine
    10 Oct 2014 | 9:02 am
    Although sabermetrics has substantially reshaped baseball’s on-field product over the past few decades, its progress in the broadcast booth has been slower. It’s not hard to see why the two trends haven’t moved in lockstep: While teams adopted the analytics model out of the need to win games, the same market pressures didn’t apply to commentators. For teams, integrating sabermetrics meant they were more likely to win; for commentators, it meant they were more likely to confuse. But now a younger generation is steeped in analytics, and statistically minded fans obsessively check sites…

    Last night: 5-3Toronto @ Ottawa (-155)Ottawa has looked solid through their first 5 games. It's too soon to tell but the Sens appear to be reemerging after going through somewhat of a rebuild. The only remaining piece of the star studded Senators of a decade ago is Spezza. Toronto is coming off a solid win against the Islanders but hasn't looked that great besides last game.

    Robert Gritzer
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:03 am
    After a 3-2 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Edmonton Oilers are 1-4-1. Even though Edmonton got their first win of the season, is it enough to kick start a season that will lead them to their first playoff appearance since the 2005-2006 season when they lost to the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 in the Stanley Cup Final? In most cases, getting a win after a lengthy losing streak can possibly turn the course of a season around. This may not be the case for the Edmonton Oilers. For the past several years, I’ve liked the Oilers and have always hoped that they would end their long…

    No matter how much I have ever questioned the National Football League’s off-field integrity and issues, I have always been able to find solace within the game itself. Sports are often seen as a microcosm of society, but also a distraction from it as well. Fans find a reason to forget about their problems within the white lines of a football field, even if it’s just for a few hours on Sunday afternoon.However, recently it seems that when a yellow flag flies within those white lines on that Sunday afternoon, we are reminded of injustice, inconsistency, unexplained choice and a lack of…

The brand is known for its innovative products designed to aid the body’s natural biomechanics rather than forcing a particular movement pattern on athletes.  I was intrigued by the company’s offerings when the call came down the line, as I have been largely unimpressed with the inserts I have worn in the past.  I explained to our contact that I typically ran in fairly minimal shoes and didn’t have any particularly profound gait abnormalities.

With a 3:27 race in Monaco 1-year ago, and a sub 1:44 800m run just 2 weeks ago, the world watched in hopes of seeing the first 3:25 1500m. The field, together the greatest group of 1500m athletes ever assembled, had no problem latching on to Kiprop as he chased the untouchable 3:25.99 mark.

When training in the RR, you will notice the separated big toe a bit, but the sensation is not detrimental to performance. The ride is balanced, and allows the foot to make full contact with the ground at both slower and faster speeds. While not necessarily a “minimalist” shoe by purist definition, the RR allows for plenty of ground feel on both the road and packed dirt surfaces. Because of…

Everything starts over, and the better team wins. Tonight clearly showed that the Royals are not the better team. This game made my head hurt. Between yelling at James Shields, who apparently didn’t think this game was big enough, and yelling at the offense, who appeared to have gone full-blown 2012 Royals, I no longer have a voice.

    World Series Game One I haven’t written anything since the end of the ALCS. After attending game four and witnessing the end of the sweep I got teary eyed and didn’t leave the stadium for nearly two hours. I didn’t have a game log. I took my good friend’s ten year old son and had an absolute blast. When Moose corralled the last ground ball hit by JJ Hardy and fired it over to Hosmer I think I hugged half of section 413. As the Beatles Kansas City blared from the stadium speakers I couldn’t believe what I was watching. The scoreboard kept flashing AMERICAN LEAGUE…
  • Royal’s Three Headed Monster

    The Kansas City Royals are returning to the World Series once again.  In reaching the playoffs for the first time since 1985, the Royals have found a way to stir up ghosts of October past. Using speed and pitching, as well as combining both of those aspects with a great defense, they have found ways to beat the Goliaths time and time again. The big hits from the favored Angels and Orioles may have been struck, but they were never allowed to find grass. And that is only if you managed to do it in the first 6 innings. With a dominant bullpen anchored by the big 3 in Wade…

And I know I’m not alone in not believing it’s real. Like the plot of some horror movie, I’m afraid I’ll wake up from this dream and the Royals will be down 7-3 in the sixth inning to the A’s three weeks ago to Game 1 of the World Series, and Jon Lester will be on the hill. Make that a nightmare, not a dream. Because, there is no way this is happening. But…

  • Did Richard Sherman Call Roger Goodell After A Murder In Seattle On Sunday?

    Edward Cormin
    20 Oct 2014 | 6:34 am
    SEATTLE- Fan favorite and Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman has been under no police scrutiny after a murder was committed in Seattle on Sunday. Neither Sherman or Goodell will reveal specifics or if they even had a phone call causing media to draw conclusions about what kind of conversation could have taken place. Some media believe that a good story would be if one of the most liked players in the NFL did something illegal and called the league commissioner to try and decide the best course of action to cover it up and the two acted in mutual interest to preserve finical interests of…
  • Jordan Zimmermann About to Give Interview, Matt Williams Takes him Out

    17 Oct 2014 | 11:25 am
    Matt Williams is showing himself to be an amateurish rookie manager. After inexplicably removing pitcher Jordan Zimmermann during Game 2 on the NLDS, a decision that’s justifiably being seen as an embarrassing lapse in judgment, the foolish manager took heat. Forget the heat though. Now he’s squarely in the furnace. With the Washington Nationals season ending in upsetting fashion, players were giving the media their final post game interviews of the season. That is, every player expect for Zimmermann. As Zimmermann approached his locker and signaled that he was ready for media questions,…

    Through the first quarter of the 2014 NFL season, certain statistics pop out. Peyton Manning, once thought to be out of football after neck surgery, is better and stronger than ever, nearly setting the league record for passing yardage against Arizona and closing in on Brett Favre’s touchdown record. Matt Ryan, never considered the strongest of quarterbacks, has had record-setting days against the Saints and the Buccaneers. The Dallas Cowboys, ordinarily the league standard for mediocrity, lead the NFC East due to the normally-fragile DeMarco Murray’s unexpectedly strong play and the…

    After seven matches, the Premier League’s table is beginning to take its usual shape.  Chelsea is at the top, followed by Manchester City, with Manchester United is not far behind at fourth.  The only odd member in the top four is surprisingly Southampton who sold more than £100 millions worth of talents in the last transfer window. I don’t think they will last long though and I do expect Arsenal to complete the top four come May next year.

    To me, former Manchester United player, Phil Neville, was foolish when he said that the Red Devils must spend £100m to be title contenders. Neville was obviously referring to the weakness in United’s backline that need to be addressed after thee 5-3 defeat at the hands of newly promoted, Leicester City. He told BBC Radio 5 Live: I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100m – before they can even think about winning the title. There are still key positions in the team that need filling. I think the centre-back position is obviously…

    12 Sep 2014 | 1:11 am
    By selling Danny Welbeck to direct rival, Arsenal, Louis Van Gaal has certainly put his reputation on the line. Both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wengner seem to think that the England striker is a quality player. Sir Alex even choose Welbeck ahead of Wayne Rooney during their Champion League match against Real Madrid a couple of years ago. Van Gaal however, has a different opinion about Welbeck. The Dutchman decided that Welbeck is not good enough for United and happy to let him go for just £16 million. Many fans don’t think it a wise idea. Just £16 million to a direct rival?

    With January transfer window edging closer, multiple reports suggest Arsenal are plotting a £10m move for Virgil Van Dijk. But who is he?

    Following her emphatic win via TKO over Amanda Nunes at last night’s UFC 182, Cat Zingano is set to get her long-awaited title shot against current women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, which is being eyed for UFC 182 on January 3 in Las Vegas. 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. White reported that Zingano walked over to him following the fight and screamed,…
  • 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…
  • Ray Rice’s Appeal: Elevator Video Was Doctored

    Well, we were wondering what exactly former NFL running back Ray Rice was going to argue in his appeal, and now we know. Rice plans to argue that the NFL extended his punishment on the basis of an edited videotape. According to legal sources via ESPN, Ray Rice’s appeal is that the TMZ tape of him hitting then Janay Palmer in an elevator in Atlantic City was cleaned-up, whittled down and condensed so that the NFL didn’t see the whole thing. Robert Mueller, the investigator hired by the league to look into Rice’s case, is expected to also have access to the contents of the…

An academy product, Case made his debut for the Reds in 1973 at the tail end of Bill Shankly’s Liverpool dynasty. Little did he know what lay in store for the team under the stewardship of Shankly’s assistant, Bob Paisley. A winner of 4 league titles and an exceptional 3 European Cups, Case remarkably, was never named in an England squad. Playing at a similar time to Ron Harris, Case can be similarly stunned that…

Ever dependable and unmovable, they soaked up enormous pressure, which allowed the likes of Cantona, Giggs, Scholes and Beckham to work their magic further up field.

    The Vikings’ defense played admirably despite a last-second, game-winning touchdown pass from Kyle Orton, Sunday. They forced four turnovers, and the Vikings offense could only muster 16 points in the loss. Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN and the Star Tribune has been pretty clear that rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is to blame for the anemic offense. He even wrote that Bridgewater’s performance against Detroit, the NFL’s top-ranked defense, was identical to Christian Ponder’s performance against Green Bay, the NFL’s 19th-ranked defense.

    Coaches are underrated, underpaid and picking a coaching staff is hard. That’s what I’ve learned since attempting to dig into all the coaching candidates to fill positions on the 2015 Minnesota Twins coaching staff. Choosing a coaching staff is largely the manager’s job, but Terry Ryan will certainly play an active role in who the new manager hires, especially if the new manager is young and influential. Although recently it seems anyone Gardy wanted Terry allowed. Perhaps we’re seeing and feeling the effects of that now. The right collection of coaches makes all the…

He fought off Dani Pedrosa as he continued to battle his way to the front of the field, passing Bradley Smith and Pol Espargarò for third place. Starting from third on the grid Lorenzo was…

    After a long and eventful Moto3 race, Australia has its new favorite. Local hero Jack Miller has won his home Grand Prix in front of more than 77.000 people, who probably collectively became fans. No wonder, since the farewell of Casey Stoner in 2012, the aussies are waiting for a new, australian top rider. It seems that Miller is the one they were looking for. The KTM factory rider started eighth position, but with the possible world title in mind, made his way up as fast as possible. His main opponent Álex Márquez instantly took the lead in front of his teammate Alex Rins, so Miller had…

    Recently crowned 2014 Champion Marc Marquez, and his Repsol Honda teammate Dani Pedrosa were back on track today at the Phillip Island circuit in Australia, with Repsol Honda’s 2011 World Champion Casey Stoner watching on with his family from inside the garage. Sunny blue skies welcomed the riders but temperatures remained fresh with an ambient temperature of just 15ºC and track at 35ºC. It was an important test for the tyres after a difficult race weekend in 2013 which resulted in race direction adding a mandatory pit stop to change tyres during the race. The factory riders attended a…

  • Could we adapt Paris’ kids cycle hire scheme in the UK?

    Asaad
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:17 am
    Paris recently extended its popular Velib cycle hire scheme to target an entirely new audience with entirely new bikes. The French cousin to London’s “Boris bikes” now includes 300 children’s bikes based at locations around their capital. Could we have the same scheme in the UK? Play in traffic? Before parents panic, the Parisian P’tit Velib scheme doesn’t see new children’s docking stations along the Champs Elysées. Instead, new hire locations are all based in parks or adjacent to other traffic-free areas – such as on the banks of the Seine.

    The Last Ball A Basketball Story by Connor Quigley It was Cup final day. The day my whole team and I had been waiting for. This is what we had been fighting for all season, and for a relatively new club to be here was quite rare to see. We all sat in the changing room, discussing tactics: what plays we were going to use and last minute studying on how the opposition played and how we could use that against them. We were all overly nervous. This was new to us; we had never reached this stage before, ever. We had been the underdogs throughout the whole cup run. But we deserved it, just for…

During a preseason game between the Suns and the Los Angeles Lakers, Thomas hit the game tying shot with time expiring. After he hit the shot, the sound buzzered and Isaiah took gloating to a whole other level, staring down the undefeated boxer.

    DUNK360 The National Football League had taken a major blow during the beginning of the season with the back to back domestic violence cases of Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson. To combat the negativity the NFL updated its domestic violence policy; making a first time offender suspended for six games and the second offense is a lifetime ban. The league has also taken strides to let fans know more about DV. One way of going about this was by a new video entitled ‘No More.’ The video stars Giants quarterback Eli Manning, with appearances by Dallas Cowboy tight End Jason Whitten, and New…

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:15 pm
    DUNK360 Matt Barnes is going to be an important piece to the Los Angeles Clippers this season. He’s solid offensively and an aggressive defensive player. But throwing an inbound pass to the opposing team’s best shooter for him to make an uncontested three is not the right way to contribute, preseason or not. On October 21st the Golden State Warriors hosted the Los Angeles Clippers for a preseason game. Barnes, with the high offensive awarness he has, decided to try and beat the Warriors’ defense and throw a cross court pass hoping to result in an easy bucket. That was not…

    DUNK360 13 year old BASEBALL phenom Mo’Ne Davis is a proven winner. So much so that Chevrolet tabbed her for an inspiring 60 second commercial which aired last night during game 1 of the World Series. The motivational clip, directed by Spike Lee features Mo’Ne pitching and providing her narrative about her passion for sports and overcoming the odds while playing amongst boys. It was speculated by many that if Mo’Ne was paid by Chevy for the commercial (which apparently she was) it could jeopardize her status as an amateur, thus preventing her from participating in any…

    22 Oct 2014 | 4:04 pm
    After a dizzying display of goal-scoring prowess in Tuesday’s Champions League fixtures, Wednesday’s matches delivered only a fraction of the drama and intrigue.   Real Madrid appeared poised to equal the seven-goal feats of Bayern Munich and Shakhtar Donetsk (7-1 and 7-nil winners on Tuesday, respectively) after scoring three in the first half at Anfield (Cristiano Ronaldo with a scintillating finish and Karim Benzema with a brace). But without injured Gareth Bale, Los Galacticos took their foot off the gas in the second half and coasted to a 3-nil victory over an…

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:32 pm
    The Tuesday slate of Champions League fixtures for Matchday 3 brought on a seemingly unprecedented onslaught of goals. Bayern Munich and Shakhtar Donetsk led the charge by scoring seven against AS Roma and BATE Borisov, respectively.   Chelsea was just one off the pace with their 6-nil thumping of NK Maribor at Stamford Bridge.   All in all a total of 40 goals were scored in just eight matches. That eclipses the entire goal mark of Matchday 2 (16 matches) in which 39 total goals were scored.   Shakhtar’s barrage on Belarusian outfit BATE was swift and unrelenting as…

It’s been one of the more remarkable stories in MLB history. Nobody saw it coming and out of nowhere, the Royals have been on a miraculous run. They have won all eight of their playoff games. They haven’t lose a game since September 27th. That’s almost a month. They have breezed by the MLB-best Angels and the Orioles. They swept them both away after coming back from a 7-3 deficit to beat the…

    Eight weeks into the NCAA Football season, only four unbeaten teams remain, and three out of those four were hardly expected to be in the discussion for the inaugural College Football Playoff. The first set of rankings for the playoff will be announced on October 28.   Only Florida State (7-0, No. 2, AP), despite immense scrutiny regarding their star quarterback Jameis Winston, has managed to live up to the preseason hype, running the table thus far including three close calls (against Oklahoma State, Clemson and most recently, Notre Dame).   Two teams from the Magnolia…
  • Seahawks upset by Rams, in trouble at 3-3

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:22 am
    Six games into the season and the Seattle Seahawks are 3-3 and in third place in the NFC West. The defending Super Bowl champions have plenty of reason for concern after their 28-26 loss to the lowly Rams. In a very good division and a strong NFC, the Seahawks are no lock to get to the playoffs. If you look at the box score Sunday, you would think Seattle dominated in all facets of the game. Somehow, they ended up with a loss. Their defense didn’t play as well as they could have hoped. They trailed early and had to try and come back late. They missed a two-point conversion. They…
