  • Ryan Braun Responds to Boos with 3-Homer Day at Citizens Bank Park

    9 Apr 2014 | 10:54 am
    In a very Barry Bonds-esque performance at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday, Ryan Braun was booed and then booed some more. His response? Three home runs. In the video below, Philadelphia Phillies fans can be heard calling him a cheater from the stands, unwilling to forgive or forget his purchase of PEDs from Biogenesis, denial of said purchase, and the slap on the wrist that followed. After only three hits in 20 at bats this season, the Milwaukee Brewers right fielder knocked in a career-high seven runs to tie a franchise record in his team's 10-4 victory. He had not gone yard in 98 plate…

He struck out six and walked one, leaving the Rays hitless in 10 at-bats with runners in scoring position during his season debut. Darvish got right down to business, accomplishing his 500th career strikeout by fanning David DeJesus and Wil Myers in the first inning. In fact, the 401.2…

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:23 pm
    The Montreal Canadiens looked as if they would cruise to an easy win when Rene Bourque scored only 11 seconds into the game. But the Canadiens needed a third-period goal from Tomas Plekanec and some fine saves from Carey Price to down the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Sunday night and take a 3-0 lead in their NHL Eastern Conference first-round playoff series. The victory gave Montreal a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series with a chance to sweep the Lightning on home ice in Game 4 on Tuesday night.

''Well,'' he thought as he walked toward the shot, ''there are a lot worse places to be.'' For Kuchar, there was no better place - and no better shot in the tournament. He followed with a stunning hole-out on Harbour Town Golf Link's closing, lighthouse hole, to overcome a four-shot deficit for a one-stroke victory and end nearly a month of Sundays where he came close to a title only to lose at the end. Kuchar shot a 64 to finish at 11-under 273, one stroke…

Marcin Gortat added 15 points and 13 rebounds, and the fifth-seeded Wizards pulled out the victory even though they looked like they were ready to be blown out. They cut a 13-point deficit to one in the third and trailed by three going into the fourth, before outscoring Chicago 18-6 over the final six minutes to come out on top in their first playoff appearance since 2008.

Yet those were hardly the big blows that attracted all the attention Sunday in the Brewers' 3-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez, Pirates outfielder Travis Snider and Milwaukee bench coach Jerry Narron were ejected after a shouting match quickly escalated into a punch-filled brawl in the third.

Reilly Smith and Zdeno Chara scored with a man advantage, the Detroit Red Wings got just one shot on goal on their four power plays and Boston won 4-1 in Game 2 on Sunday. He scored his first career playoff goal 10:35 into the game, just over three minutes after Justin Florek's fluke goal gave the Bruins a 1-0 lead on their first shot at 7:28. They finished the first period with 18 shots on goalie Jimmy Howard after managing just 25 in losing Friday night's opener 1-0.

    The Red Sox capped a stirring Easter Sunday comeback on a walk-off throwing error by Orioles left fielder David Lough. With the bases loaded and one out, Mike Carp hit a liner to left that was caught by Lough, too shallow to score Dustin Pedroia. But Lough threw home anyway, and the offline throw bounced out of the grasp of Matt Wieters and went toward the backstop, allowing Pedroia to roar home to give the Red Sox a 6-5 win.

    They say timing is everything. That certainly applies to stand-up comedy; it surely applies to investing; timing may not be everything in the world of politics, but it is surely a critical ingredient in political success. Warren Spahn once described the role of timing in baseball: “Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.” I mention this because the timing might not be worse with regard to an IOC event next month. According to a report in the NY Post, on 8 May a group of IOC officials will hold a video conference with 5 cities who have expressed interest in hosting the 2022 Winter…

    Buster Olney of ESPN had a report last week that one of his executive sources in MLB thinks that baseball games should be shortened to 7 innings. This exec cited the lack of pitching and the injuries to pitchers as a significant problem for MLB that would be alleviated to some degree by shorter games. He also thinks that the pace of play in baseball is too slow to hold the attention of young people today and shortened games would be a plus on that axis too. [Aside: His analysis of the attention span for lots of young folks today is on target; some do not have the attention span of a kitten.]…

    20 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    In the 2013 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers first pick was Jarvis Jones, a linebacker for the University of Georgia, where he was twice a consensus All-American.  Playing in 12 games for the Bulldogs in his senior year, (2012), he had 85 tackles, 24 for a loss, 14.5 sacks, one interception, seven forced fumbles and two recovered by him.  Jones is 6-feet-2-inches tall, and weighs 245 pounds. I am a Steeler fan whose favorite player is most frequently a linebacker.  It began with Jack Lambert, and most recently Lamarr Woodley, who was released in the off season.  The opinion is that he…

    The acquisition of ex-Baltimore Ravens safety James Ihedigbo and the recent re-signing of veteran CB Rashean Mathis may give some insight into how the Detroit Lions might be viewing their current secondary situation. Already flush with coaches who have a rich and successful history of developing young secondary talent, the team now has installed proven mentors and successful leaders in Mathis and Ihedigbo. And all of this may point to the fact that GM Martin Mayhew and head coach Jim Caldwell may feel at ease enough with their young defensive backs to put off drafting a corner or safety, or…

The Tampa Bay Lightning were up in arms in Game 3, and not just because Steven Stamkos was kneed in the head by Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin. That play probably wouldn't have happened if not for the apparent blown call by the officials a minute earlier that robbed Tampa of a go-ahead goal. Midway through the second period, Alex Killorn drove the puck to the net and knocked Carey Price out of his crease. The play continued, even though Killorn was stuck inside the Canadiens' net. Killorn tried to escape at the exact moment…

    Coaches are always trying to one-up each other in recruiting. Boise State coaches have an interesting plan to make an impression. College football recruiting is a constant battle to make the biggest impression. Boise State coaches don't have Kevin Sumlin's Swaggercopter, but they do have horses, a lot of horses. Alright Idaho, the Bronco Blitz is coming to a school near you. #BroncoBlitz — BSURecruits (@BSURecruits) April 21, 2014 They probably won't actually ride those horses to the various high schools, but that would be quite the…
  • Steven Stamkos injury: Lightning captain injured after being kneed in head by Alexei Emelin

    Pat Iversen
    20 Apr 2014 | 6:12 pm
    Stamkos fell at the worst possible moment. Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos became the victim of unfortunate timing on Sunday when Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin briefly injured him with his knee. Midway through the second period, Stamkos lost his balance while jostling with Canadiens forward Brandon Prust. The star center fell directly into the path of the hard-charging Emelin's knee, and collapsed to the ice: Stamkos tried to get back up under his own power, but fell back to the ice in pain. He was eventually helped to the locker room by trainers and eventually…

Of course he tricks two teams into making incredibly dumb trades that no team would ever make, just so he can draft a player he would have been able to pick at that spot anyway, and the movie ends halfway through round 1.It was pretty generic.

Neither Clark nor Meriweather is the solution at his position, but Virginia Tech's Antone Exum may very well be. Exum is listed as a cornerback because that's where he made his biggest impact for the Hokies. He started his college career as a free safety and actually appeared in more games as a free safety than a cornerback. He stands six…

While my opinion hasn’t changed, Aaron Donald would be an excellent consolation prize for a team that suddenly has an unimposing group of defensive tackles following the loss of Linval Joseph in free agency. Despite being somewhat undersized at 6’1”, 285 pounds, Donald is a quintessential 3-technique defensive tackle in a 4-3 scheme. He has an incredible first step that consistently beats…

  • Poll: Did The Astros Promote George Springer At The Right Time?

    Charlie Wilmoth
    20 Apr 2014 | 8:10 pm
    When the Astros promoted top prospect George Springer earlier this week, it ended a mini-drama that cut to the heart of Major League Baseball's rules concerning Super Two status and free-agency eligibility. MLB, of course, allows players to become free agents after six full years of service. By waiting two weeks after the start of the season to promote Springer, the Astros ensured that they could control his rights through 2020. But by promoting him before June, they also gave him the chance to become a Super Two player. That meant he could be eligible for arbitration following the 2016…

Abreu is 40 and hasn't played in the big leagues since 2012, which he spent with the Angels and Dodgers. But he made a good impression in Vegas, hitting .412/.500/.529 in 40 plate appearances there, and the Mets have space for a left-handed bench player after trading Ike Davis to the Pirates. As Newsday's Marc Carig tweets, that means the Mets' active roster will include Abreu, Bartolo Colon, Kyle Farnsworth, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jose Valverde. Here are more notes from around…

This week's Ike Davis trade aside, deals involving valuable players generally aren't made in April, and the Giants would likely have to pay heavily to acquire a talented infielder. Later this summer, the Giants still might not make second base their top priority, Schulman suggests -- they may instead focus on their bench. Here are more notes from the West divisions.

    17 Apr 2014 | 7:56 am
    Chris Johnson, in some ways, was a victim of his own success. He set the world on fire with 2,006 rushing yards in 2009. He added 503 receiving yards and 16 total touchdowns. While he never came close to those numbers again, he has averaged 1,454 total yards the past three seasons. His scoring dipped to 6.7 touchdowns per season during that stretch, but the Tennessee Titans were a mess as a whole. Can he succeed with the New York Jets? Since averaging 4.9 yards per carry as a rookie and 5.6 ypc during the season that coined the nickname CJ2K, he has averaged 4.3, 4.0, 4.5 and 3.9 ypc and…

Of all social issues, perhaps nothing garners more attention in today’s media than gay rights, and Sam’s coming out in early February set the social media world ablaze. No one doubts his talent, well, they didn’t until the announcement…

    Passion for sports is something that is shared around the world. No matter what our differences are, sports is something that everyone can relate to and find some sort of common ground on. For many of us, our passion for sports goes beyond being a fan or just participating in local rec leagues – we want our love for sports to become a bigger part of our lives. This is why many dream of becoming a sports writer. While writing is definitely not for everyone, it’s something attainable for anyone with a gifted keystroke. Here are a few tips to follow if you want to get your sports writing…
  • The Sponsored Marathon Photo – an Emerging Model

    Eitan Hefetz
    13 Mar 2014 | 6:45 am
    The marathon photo has been around since running events became a popular leisure and recreational activity. Runners train months for a marathon – and  love to get their moments of achievement memorized in great photos during race day. For years the dominant business model driving the marathon photo was selling photos to athletes. This model is becoming challenging for race photographers these days. People are taking and sharing photos all day using their smart phones and are reluctant to pay for photos. Yet, at the same time, race finishers are still enthusiastic about sharing their race…
  • How Will Online Streaming of The Masters Change Sports Broadcasting?

    Jennifer Smith
    12 Mar 2014 | 10:19 am
    This year, viewers who wanted to watch the Seahawks beat the Broncos had a new option: stream the game online. Fox offered Super Bowl XLVIII live streaming on and the Fox Sports Go iPad app, and viewers were able to load up streaming video and keep track of every touchdown. Although online sportsbook TopBet recently wrote an article discussing America’s favorite Super Bowl commercials, the irony is that live online viewing of the Super Bowl with the commercials included, likely won’t happen anytime soon. In a few months, CBS Sports is going to stream the The Masters…

  • Ohio State's 2014 Defensive Line Will Be Destroyers of Worlds

    Michael Citro
    20 Apr 2014 | 5:15 am
    Ohio State’s defensive line is going to demolish many an offensive line this season. The previous line is an assumption, rooted in fact, which sounds like an opinion. But a quick look at the facts supports that opening assumption.  It all starts with the fact that the line was easily Ohio State’s best defensive unit in 2013. Michael Bennett, Noah Spence, Adolphus Washington, Joey Bosa, and others contributed to whatever little success the defense had — in stopping the run, primarily, but also in producing sacks against the passing game, on those rare occasions when an opposing receiver…
  • Meyer, Fickell Pleased with Advancements at Linebacker

    Kyle Rowland
    20 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Bookended by one of the top defensive lines in the country and an improved pass defense, Ohio State’s linebackers have landed in an enviable position. Stress and pressure have been removed at the same time depth was added. For the first time during the Urban Meyer era, there are many positives not named Ryan Shazier. There isn’t a 143-tackle machine on the roster. But what Joshua Perry, Darron Lee, Curtis Grant, Chris Worley and Raekwon McMillan proved this spring is there’s strength in numbers. No one on defense creates a buzz like McMillan – not any of the four starting defensive…

The pre-game between Philadelphia and the Rangers is already underway, with New York having the lead in the series.  Philadelphia lost the first game 4-1, and will be trying to ramp up their defence to ensure they don't suffer a seond loss.  The Rangers will be out to repeat their performance of game 1. The game between Detroit and Boston today will see Boston focussed on regaining that home ice advantage.  An incredible goal by Datsyuk with only three minutes left in the game grabbed a series lead for…

  • Canadiens Clicking At the Right Time

    In the Stanley Cup playoffs, it is not always the best team that wins a game or a series. Rather, it is usually the team that is the hottest or is clicking at the right time. Sure, said team may have finished a point or several points behind their opponent, but in the end, all that matters is the here and now and what a team does with it. Right now, one team that is playing perhaps their best hockey of the year is the Montreal Canadiens. Going into their postseason match-up with the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Habs went 7-2-1 to finish the regular season and finished the year with 100 points and…

Greek tradition. My family never did it, but some in my area do and my son and I got invited. What can I do, say no?

Today’s submission comes to us from TiqIQ, who put together this interactive infographic showing the change in market prices for Round One of the NBA Playoffs compared to regular season pricing. It’s interesting to see how the Heat have the lowest premium compared to the regular season while having the highest regular season pricing.

    Ivan Nova (Photo credit: Keith Allison) As you already know, baseball is a team sport. The greatest teams are made up of players who keep their egos in check by setting aside personal desires, and living by the motto, whatever it takes to make the team better. This means putting the team first by simply asking one question every time you have to make a decision. What is in the best interest of the team? For example if something doesn’t feel right it is a player’s obligation to speak up so he doesn’t jeopardize his team’s chances of winning. No doubt nobody is perfect, but if something…

This series is a big one not only because Tropicana Field, the dome home of the Rays has not been the friendliest place to the Yankees over the last few years. It is the Rays themselves, who have been a problem for the Yankees since 2010. Since winning the 2009 World Series, the Yankees have gone 32-41 vs. the Rays, and 14-22 at the Trop.

After a weekend that ended with Carlos Beltran playing first base, and almost put Dean Anna behind the dish, there is no room left for denial that the Yankees need infield help now.

  • We were 20-30 runs short: Dhawan

    Alka Anand Singh
    19 Apr 2014 | 3:14 am
    Having put themselves in a position to win the game before Rajasthan came storming back, Hyderabad captain Shikhar Dhawan said he and his team were confident of defending the sub-par total they had put up on the board. Batting first, Hyderabad could only manage 133/6 on the board despite Dhawan(38), David Warner(32) and Lokesh Rahul(20) all enjoying good starts. However, they made the total seem much more than it actually was thanks to some great bowling, especially from Amit Mishra and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, before some good hitting in the last 2 overs helped the inaugural Indian T20 League(T20…

    bu Dhabi: Star batsman Virat Kohli on Thursday, termed the criticism directed to his India team-mate Yuvraj Singh for his performance in the recent World Twenty20 loss for India against Sri Lanka in Bangladesh as “unfair”. “Yuvraj got criticism recently, it’s unfair. He has won us two World Cups (2007 T20 and 2011 50-over), he’s a proven match-winner and it’s important to back a player like him,” Kohli, captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, said after his side’s eight-wicket win over Delhi Daredevils in an IPL match here.Yuvraj on Thursday,…

  • Yankees: Team players do not pitch hurt

    Kate Conroy
    20 Apr 2014 | 2:04 pm
    Ivan Nova (Photo credit: Keith Allison) As you already know, baseball is a team sport. The greatest teams are made up of players who keep their egos in check by setting aside personal desires, and living by the motto, whatever it takes to make the team better. This means putting the team first by simply asking one question every time you have to make a decision. What is in the best interest of the team? For example if something doesn’t feel right it is a player’s obligation to speak up so he doesn’t jeopardize his team’s chances of winning. No doubt nobody is perfect, but if something…

    Joe Maddon (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Following winning yesterday’s double header against the Cubs, the New York Yankees land in Tampa on a four game winning streak to face their divisional rival Rays. This series is a big one not only because Tropicana Field, the dome home of the Rays has not been the friendliest place to the Yankees over the last few years. It is the Rays themselves, who have been a problem for the Yankees since 2010. Since winning the 2009 World Series, the Yankees have gone 32-41 vs. the Rays, and 14-22 at the Trop. The last 22 games the Yankees have only won six. Still…

    Stephen Drew, Adam Jones (Photo credit: Keith Allison) The time has come for the New York Yankees to pick-up the phone, and call agent Scott Boras about Stephen Drew. After a weekend that ended with Carlos Beltran playing first base, and almost put Dean Anna behind the dish, there is no room left for denial that the Yankees need infield help now. The Yankees dodged a bullet this weekend against the Red Sox, but this infield is way too nicked up to put the 2014 season at risk after spending like nobody’s business during the off-season. After 13 games the infield injuries to Derek Jeter, Mark…

This past weekend the Yankees took three of four from the Boston Red Sox, which leaves them sitting with a 7-6 record, and top of the AL East with the Rays. The calendar might prove it is too early into the 2014 season to be concerned, but speaking as a Yankees fan it doesn’t feel like it. Is 13 games even enough time for the shoe to start to dropping?

  • Nationals Must Solve Braves Riddle to Win the N.L. East in 2014

    14 Apr 2014 | 2:39 pm
    The Atlanta Braves own the Washington Nationals and it was never more apparent than this past weekend in Atlanta with the Braves sweeping the Nats. Since the start of the 2013 season the Braves have won 18 of the last 25 head-to-head meetings between the two N.L. East rivals. This rivalry is starting to feel like the Cowboys and Redskins with the Braves always seeming to get that lucky bounce or close call to fall their way. The 2014 season has just started and we’ve got a lot of baseball left to play, but one thing has been made crystal clear, the Nats must find a way to get things…
  • Orioles Improve Depth with Trade for Lombardozzi

    24 Mar 2014 | 10:39 pm
    Steve Lombardozzi The Baltimore Orioles made a very good trade by acquiring Steve Lombardozzi from the Detroit Tigers for veteran Alex Gonzalez. This is a huge move for the Orioles because Lombo’s a very solid player that can play almost any position on the field and plays the game the right way. This kid will become a fan favorite very quickly in Baltimore. This is a steal of a deal for the Orioles front office in my opinion because they gave up essentially nothing to dramatically upgrade their bench. Gonzalez is a 37 year old player that really had no future with the Orioles once…
  • The NFL’s Annual Free Agent Signing Frenzy Begins Today and the Redskins are Back in the Hunt

    11 Mar 2014 | 10:22 am
    Redskins One The NFL free agent signing period is already cranked up into overdrive and it doesn’t officially start until this afternoon at 4 p.m.! It’s nice to see the salary cap handcuffs taken off the Washington Redskins after a two-year penalty imposed by the league office. Now I’m hearing the team linked to many of the big name players on the market, but that was always the case before the team was exiled unjustly by the a-holes in New York. Most of those rumors are nothing more than B.$. being floated by agents trying to drive up the price tag of signing their clients.

    Here’s a quick update on how my second season of Fantasy Basketball is going as we enter Week 20 and the stretch run to the playoffs. I’ve got to say things have went a lot better than my disastrous rookie season last year. My team is 16-3 and looks strong. Coming into this 2014 season I had a goal of making the playoffs and would have been happy with that progress after last season’s nightmare. But now I’ll be disappointed with anything less than winning the league championship. My team has already clinched a division title and is close to wrapping up the #1 seed…
  • Bringing Brian Orakpo Back Was a Smart Move by the Redskins

    4 Mar 2014 | 10:22 am
    Brian Orakpo The Washington Redskins did the right thing by using the franchise tag on LB Brian Orakpo in my opinion. I admit to being against the team bringing him back on a huge multi-year deal because I don’t think he’s produced enough and has been injury prone. But after hearing that defensive coordinator Jim Haslett plans on letting Orakpo pin his ears back and rush the passer more I think using the franchise tag on him was the right thing to do. This is nothing more than a one-year deal and it’s worth the gamble. I know the team says they’re working on a…

    The Red Sox came into this game hoping to take the lead in the series against the Orioles.  The Sox had Jake Peavy on the mound vs. Ubaldo Jimenez for the O’s.  Peavy struggled out of the gate allowing 3 runs to score in the first.  The Sox would end up coming back to win the game in walk off fashion in the 9th inning much thanks to the poor defense from the O’s. Peavy gave up a solo HR in the 1st to Nelson Cruz who continues to just pummel Sox pitching.  Peavy also gave up an RBI single to Wieters and a sac fly to Hardy.  Sox 0-3.  Peavy kept the score 0-3 until the 5th…

Doubront gave up his first run of the outing in the 1st inning with an RBI single to Nelson Cruz.  Sox 0-1.  The Sox were able to tie the game up in the bottom of the inning when Nap hit an RBI grounder to score Pedroia.  The game stayed tied…

    Sometimes an injury to an important member of a team can start a tailspin. That seemed to happen with the 99 Sox. Entering an April series at Fenway against the undermanned but troublesome Tampa Bay, the Sox were 6-2 and apparently on their way. But in the second game of the series, storm clouds appeared over the park. In the opening contest on the 17th, 18,809 (this was long before the sellout streak), braved 45-degree temperatures as the Devil Rays, as they were then called, triumphed 6-2.

  • Bridge Year?

    Michael Passanisi
    19 Apr 2014 | 4:52 am
    I guess we should have expected this. The baseball gods that were smiling on the Red Sox throughout the 2013 season are suddenly sporting frowns. The team’s 5-9 record through Tuesday ties Houston for the worst in the AL. Instead of walkoff wins, we are getting walkoff losses. Clutch hits have become discouraging popups that leave men in scoring position. The “power by committee” of last year, not surprisingly, is not happening. This season’s April reminds me a bit of 1996. The previous year, the Sox had won the AL East in a strike-shortened season. Newcomer Tim…

Lackey gave up a single run in the 1st inning on a play that was made controversial because of the new replay rules.  It was ruled that Lackey gave up a double to Markakis, however it was reviewed…

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… The year was 1974.  Earth’s population reached the 4 billion mark. UPC (Universal Product Code) or barcode technology was first used in the retail environment. The famous Rubik’s Cube, invented by Erno Rubik made its debut, and the Heimlich maneuver was first introduced. The year saw such notable births as Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon, New York Yankees’ shortstop Derek Jeter – actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale and Joaquin Phoenix – and music entertainer Cee Lo Green, among others.

  • Utah Jazz: What Does 4th Mean in the Lottery?

    Spencer Wixom
    18 Apr 2014 | 2:28 pm
    Today the Utah Jazz won the coin flip!  What does that mean?  We now in the 4th lottery position.  So let’s take a look at what our odds are of winning the lottery. Interestingly enough the 4th pick is the least likely pick, besides the 7th, that the Utah Jazz could land.  The Jazz now have a 33.35% at a top 3 pick.  Those are great odds right?  The 5th pick however, is the most likely landing spot statistically.  Let’s take a look at the historical results of the lottery to see if the higher odds have really won more often. In the 19 years of the modern draft structure, the…

Well merely 5 weeks ago Utah Spring Camp started and already it is coming to a close.  This Saturday, 4/19, Rice-Eccles Stadium will host the final “practice” of Spring Camp with the annual Red-White Game. Luckily I have been able to attend every Spring practice, but for those that haven’t the Spring Game may be the first and last chance to see the Utes in action before the home opener against Idaho St. on August 28th (Why!? Why must the college football offseason be so long!?). Mind you the Spring Game is designed for…

    “To be perfectly frank, the notion of using a union-employee model to address the challenges that do exist in intercollegiate athletics is something that strikes most people as a grossly inappropriate solution to the problem” “To convert to a unionized employee model is essentially to throw away the entire collegiate model for athletics. You can’t split that in two. You’re either a student playing sports or you’re an employee of a university. It would blow up everything about the collegiate model of athletics.” — NCAA President Mark Emmert  Change to college athletics is…

    Jason Patt
    20 Apr 2014 | 6:48 pm
    The Wizards outscored the Bulls 30-18 in the fourth quarter to steal Game 1 on the road in Chicago. The Washington Wizards became the fourth road team to win Game 1 this postseason, going into the United Center and defeating the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, 102-93. The Wizards trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half, but they chipped away at the deficit and finally caught the Bulls midway through the fourth quarter. Andre Miller provided some quality minutes at the outset of the final frame, scoring eight of his 10 points in the fourth. A bucket by Marcin Gortat with 3:43 left put the…
  • Controversial no-goal call robs Lightning of go-ahead goal in Game 3

    Pat Iversen
    20 Apr 2014 | 6:38 pm
    Montreal escaped with what looked like a blown call. The Tampa Bay Lightning were up in arms in Game 3, and not just because Steven Stamkos was kneed in the head by Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin. That play probably wouldn't have happened if not for the apparent blown call by the officials a minute earlier that robbed Tampa of a go-ahead goal. Midway through the second period, Alex Killorn drove the puck to the net and knocked Carey Price out of his crease. The play continued, even though Killorn was stuck inside the Canadiens' net. Killorn tried to escape at the exact moment…

    Stamkos fell at the worst possible moment. Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos became the victim of unfortunate timing on Sunday when Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin briefly injured him with his knee. Midway through the second period, Stamkos lost his balance while jostling with Canadiens forward Brandon Prust. The star center fell directly into the path of the hard-charging Emelin's knee, and collapsed to the ice: Stamkos tried to get back up under his own power, but fell back to the ice in pain. He was eventually helped to the locker room by trainers and eventually…

    Quarterback Drop Fundamentals In today’s video blog post, I am sharing an awesome set of drills for working on the Quarterback Drop. Great for pre-practice, warm-up or end of practice conditioning, these quarterback drop drills will help you coach your quarterbacks more efficiently! Tandem Drops This is a basic drop drill where you will direct your quarterbacks on a 3-step or 5-step drop, and they drop in unison. I like to use this as a pre-practice and get as many reps as possible, so we don’t use the centers in this type of drill. You can use 3-steps, 5-steps, and even 5-steps…

    This is a fantastic warm up and agility drill that we like to do to get the eyes and hands ready to go. This agility drill allows players to work on both agility and catching the football. Breaking Down the Popcorn Agility Drill In this agility drill, the coach is going to throw the player as many balls as he can while they are moving laterally. Your focus is on working lateral movement, and not clicking the feet. Be sure to keep the head and eyes up. The player shouldn’t cross over, and they should stay right on the line the entire time. The second time through, I sometimes add a…

    In football, its important to know exactly what should happen with the feet on contact with the block. In today’s video blog post, we are breaking down the exact technique to use to make proper contact with a defender. How To Make Proper Contact with the Football Defender When you are engaging the football defender, you want to make sure you have a good, strong base. Without a strong base, the defender is going to be able to throw you off balance easily, because you have no strength in that position. So a good base is very important.

It is thought that Manchester United are now favourites to secure the signature of Southamptons Luke Shaw, and according to the Daily Star, both City and Chelsea have identified Kurzawa as an alternative. The 21-year-old began his career as a midfielder, but was converted into an attacking full-back due to his pace, aggression and defensive qualities.

The Daily Star reveals that Arsenal are contemplating a 13million move for the United defender, mainly because Arsene Wenger is keen to get cover at centre back and at right back in the off-season.

    Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports The Anaheim Ducks lead the series with the Dallas Stars 2-0 thus far, but the Ducks have also yet to face the Stars on home ice — an advantage most find game-changing during the playoffs. More importantly, the Ducks have yet to truly face the best of what this Stars team has to offer in the forms of top-line superstars Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. Together, Seguin and Benn have created a line of effort and chemistry no amount of skill can ever replicate.

They did it against the Detroit Red Wings, and they almost did it against the Vancouver Canucks. The problem is, the Blues are in the Hawks’ heads, and they’re pushing them around, forcing them to play an unacceptable style of play. The first thing the Hawks can do to get back in this series is to stop doing what the Blues want them to do. Looking at stories about the series, a Hawks fan…

With Derrick Rose sidelined for the season, nobody is confusing this team for a championship contender in 2014, but teams should still be warned against attempting to beat the Bulls at their own game. That’s exactly what the Washington Wizards did on Sunday night, though, pairing tough defense with a highly developed frontcourt attack to down Chicago, 102-93, stealing home-court advantage and Game 1 of their first-round playoff series along the way. Chicago was up by as many as 13 points in the third quarter before Washington…

    You're not going to see many momentum swings as drastic as the one that turned the Tampa Bay Lightning's 2-1 lead versus the Montreal Canadiens into a 2-1 deficit in Sunday night's Game 3. Originally, it looked like the Lightning had scored the all-important go-ahead goal. After a scramble in front of the Montreal net, with Alex Killorn spilling into the crease, Carey Price flopping all over, and the puck moving side to side before Ryan Callahan put the puck in. Your browser does not support iframes. But the goal was waved off by the officials, presumably because of goaltender interference.

In their first game in front of that wide audience, one player produced arguably the single most impressive play of the postseason so far. Less than a minute into the fourth quarter of Sunday's series-opening game against the defending champion Miami Heat, forward Josh McRoberts slipped past LeBron James, took a pass from teammate Luke Ridnour, and unloaded on Heat big man Chris "Birdman" Andersen for the emphatic posterization.

Just two weeks removed from a pitch shot that won the Shell Houston Open for Matt Jones, Kuchar faced a bunker shot on the 18th hole on Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links that will be in the running for golf shot of the year. Kuchar, who made six birdies on his way out on Sunday for a front nine 30, made his first bogey of the day on the 17th hole, and it looked like that shot could ruin his chances of…

    LIVERPOOL, April 20- Manchester United manager David Moyes tasted defeat on his first return to Everton since leaving the club as his side were beaten 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday. Moyes was greeted with a smattering of boos as he walked out of the tunnel before the match, but it was the loss, which definitively ended United’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, that will trouble him more.

    LONDON, April 20- Liverpool took another step towards a first league title since 1990 after winning 3-2 at Norwich City on Sunday to pull five points clear in the Premier League. Quick-fire early goals from Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez put the visitors in control at Carrow Road, before Gary Hooper replied for fourth-bottom Norwich in the 54th minute. Sterling appeared to have made the points safe with a deflected shot minutes later, but a late Robert Snodgrass header obliged Liverpool to endure a nervy last 10 minutes. It was Liverpool’s 11th consecutive league victory and means that…

    Nine years in the NFL and another 20 in the NCAA doesn’t happen by accident. A career like this happens when a coach knows how to develop talent—and knows how to win. In 1983, with no coaching experience, Waynesboro, Virginia native Charlie Coiner had big dreams and made a bold move by approaching a new (now national) coaching figure. His timing was perfect. In 1983, Charlie Coiner served as a graduate assistant at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Mack Brown, now Head Coach at the University of Texas, had just begun his first head-coaching job. Coiner recalls, “I…

    How much success have you passed up by not giving just 1% more? Success is not determined by the opinions of others. There is no ruler that measures success, nor will there ever be, or has there ever been. Success is not determined by how hard you think you have worked, how early you rise, or how late you retire. Success is not purchased, it is not negotiated, it is not given to you, it is not taught, and it is not inherited. The dictionary defines success as the favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors but even that is not success. Failure is not the race that is lost,…

That high level of play earned the Bulls a first round series meeting with the Washington Wizards. The Wizards flew under the radar most of the season, but they deserve credit for not only making the playoffs, but for playing well enough to sneak into a five seed on the last day of the regular season.

    16 Apr 2014 | 6:24 am
    The Washington Spirit appeared to have run out of just what their moniker suggests after their 3-1 loss to the Western New York Flash during Sunday’s home opener. Despite the Flash’s physical dominance throughout the match, the first half was evenly battled. Both teams had only one shot on goal, but WNY’s Vicky Losada — who had two goals and an assist this match — was able to capitalize on her opportunity, making the score 1-0 15 minutes into the match. Losada’s first goal came from a shot about 30 yards out which caught former Flash goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris off of her line.

  • Ohio State Tickets Overpriced For the Spring

    Ohio State reduced the price of Spring Game tickets today back to $5 a piece, the price they were at for most of the Jim Tressel era. The original price was $12 in advance and $20 at the gate. The weather should be decent tomorrow but the enthusiasm to fill the stadium might not be a fever pitch with fans after a little bit a let down by the team to end 2013. Parking at the stadium is free and if you did pay the higher price, the difference will be donated to Life Sports and the Boys and Girls Club. Returning a ticket starting the 14th for a full refund is also an option.

    Wild on SportsNHL Power RankingsApril 1, 2014For a second straight week the Boston Bruins, the hottest team in the NHL, holds down the top spot. The Bruns have won 15 of their last 16 and posted a 15-1-1 record in the month of March. Just incredible. The defending Eastern Conference Champs are firing on all cylinders and looks poised for another deep playoff run. At #2 this week are the St. Louis Blues. The Blues had won three straight this past week before a tough loss to the Dallas Stars. They still remain one of the top teams in the West and have been extremely dominant since the trade…

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: Colorado RockiesBy Wild on Sports MLB Analyst Aaron Dorman2013 Overview: The year before, the pitching collapsed and the formerly competitive Rockies unit looked like they might need a rebuild. In 2013 they still only win 74 games but things are more promising; they might have won 4-5 if not for month-long injuries to their trio of offensive stars: Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki. The pitching looks much less terrible, as Joulys Chacin and Jorge de la Rosa lead a rebound performance. Still, the team has plenty of holes.Winter…

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: San Diego PadresBy Wild on Sports MLB Analyst Aaron Dorman2013 Overview: A nearly identical year to the previous. Injuries in the rotation. Some rookie surprises in the field (Logan Forsythe in 2012, Jedd Gyorko in 2013) and also some complete meltdowns (Nick Hundley in 2012, Cameron Maybin in 2013). Above .500 in the second half of the year. Everth Cabrera only plays a half season; in 2012 it was an injury, in 2013 it was steroids. Perhaps this current version of the Padres is epitomized by Yonder Alonso, an unusual and intriguing talent who nevertheless…

    Wild on SportsMLB 2014 Team Preview: San Francisco GiantsBy Wild on Sports Analyst Aaron DormanThe World Series winners follow up their magic season with a belly flop. Most of their starters regress, Angel Pagan goes missing for most of the year, and nobody comes in to fill the hole left behind by Melky Cabrera, who hit .346 in 2012. It’s the pitching that does them in; the Giants finish 2013 12th in team ERA (4.00), which is 16 % below league average when you factor in the ballpark. That’s not a formula for success.Winter Grade: B Coming: Tim Hudson, Mike MorseGoing: Barry…

But back-to-back .500 seasons can’t really be considered a triumph, especially in the wake of some controversial, head-scratching trades including the departure of Justin Upton. Fans were probably wondering where he was while Jason Kubel hit .220, and the ‘extra’ player in that trade, Chris Johnson, almost won a batting title for Atlanta (.321). Oops. Meanwhile, Miguel Montero loses his mojo, but Paul Goldschmidt becomes an MVP candidate. Winter…

    While it’s always noted that playoff series’ are a grind, the importance of the first game can not be overstated to both oddsmakers and bettors alike. The opening game this year caused series prices to shift by an average of 135 cents, or $1.35 (i.e. +150 to +285), but not all wins are created equal.  Pittsburgh was an overwhelming -280 favorite to win their series against Columbus, and a 1-0 series lead moved those odds to -500.  On the other hand, St. Louis secured a massive 3-OT win over Chicago in their opening game to maintain home-ice advantage, but their odds to win the…

Since the sport is called “FOOTball,” the players who make their living booting an odd-shaped, inflated pigskin are frequently overlooked at best and taken for granted at worst. But their contributions to the most popular sport in the nation can’t be written off nor can they be compartmentalized as mere “specialists,” even though technically, that’s exactly what they are.

    This was a long season. It started in London, went through Lanzarote and finished in Auckland in the middle of summer in January (or as the rest of the world call it - winter ;)). That’s why after finishing my 70.3 race I decided to take it little easier for couple of weeks. I let my nutrition go crazy, gained few kilograms (thankfully mostly due to weight lifting) and lost a lot of endurance. I was too slow and too tired to have good photos taken :p.

    3 weeks ago I started long weight lifting program. I’m not a weight lifter, nor I ever plan becoming one, but I figured that this would be the best approach right now. I don’t plan any big event anytime soon (except ITU Olympic distance Triathlon and some Ocean Swim), so working on my basics seems reasonable. This year is going to be running one, as I want to finish two marathons and couple of shorter runs. So I’ve increased my volume and injured myself at the end of second week of new program.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been more tired than while trying to run last 15 km of last Sunday race. They say ignorance is a bliss, and this time I had no privilege to be a first timer. Well, the plan was simple - don’t mess up swim too much, smash the bike, survive the run and do it all below 5:30. You might say that it’s a low goal, but being a smoking coach potato for many years I found it accurate for a second half Ironman race. Mission accomplished, and I’m now even more hungry for that sport.

    I don’t think that I’ve ever been so focused in my life. When I ended working for my last company I had the most unproductive period of the last year (and yet it definitely was not the most unproductive period of my life… sad but true). Lack of need of getting up early, not knowing how is next week going to look like and general boredom - not the best combination.After I moved to Auckland it took me few weeks to settle down and figure out everything. I’ve found quite good gym, near by swimming pool and good places for open water swimming. But most importantly I’ve found new…

  • The Expert in a Year Diary: Week 11

    Ben Larcombe
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:19 am
    Week 11 was another busy week of training. We did plenty of work in the kitchen and also managed to squeeze in a couple of gym sessions and a trip to Morpeth Table Tennis Club. We are well into March now and really starting to feel the pressure of time on our progress. If we are to have any chance of reaching our goal of getting Sam into the top 250 by the end of the year then he needs to have mastered all the basics pretty soon. The following diary is from 10th – 16th March 2014. The video below is our highlights video from the week. Sam has joined me to talk through the action (as…

    5 Apr 2014 | 1:01 am
    On Friday 7th March, during week ten of the challenge, Sam and I headed over to London Moberly Table Tennis Club to meet, head coach, Sherwin Remata and get his opinion on Sam’s development so far. Sherwin is a very competent player and coach. He is a solid top 100 player in England and has many years experience coaching players of all abilities. I told Sherwin roughly where we were up to (mainly working on Sam’s topspin strokes and open-up) and asked him to have a look at everything and try to tweak things as much as possible. I set the tripod and video camera up, got out my…

    It’s week 10 of the Expert in a Year Challenge! 3rd-9th March 2014. Actually, it’s week 14 at the moment. Sorry I’ve got so behind with keeping you all updated. It’s almost the Easter holidays (which means I get two weeks off from coaching at school), so I should have no excuses for not getting back up to date. Week 10 saw Sam receive an hour of private coaching from Sherwin Remata, a top 100 player in England and head coach at London Moberly TTC. It also included seven hours of our standard sessions too and a couple of trips to the gym. To have a look at the archive…

    Welcome to our (Ben and Sam’s) diary for Week 9 of the Expert in a Year Challenge. This was a pretty standard week with seven coached sessions (all taking place in the kitchen) and a few gym sessions. It really feels like we have got into a stable training routine now and ‘Expert in a Year’ has just become a part of normal life! We bulk of the week was spent working on shots like the topspin loop and the open up (on both forehand and backhand). These a vital strokes for any serious table tennis player to perfect and we are spending a lot of time on these. To check out the…

    14 Mar 2014 | 6:58 am
    Week 8 included loads and loads of table tennis. Probably about 20 hours in total! This was largely due to the fact that we left the kitchen, for the first time in Sam’s training, and traveled up to Swerve TTC in Middlesbrough for a three day intensive camp. If you’d like to find out more about the trip I recommend you read Sam’s Swerve Diary where he records his thoughts and feelings over the three days. Week 8 saw us cover a number of new strokes, most notably the forehand smash and backhand open-up. As always we kick off with the weekly highlights video (below). This week…

  • How to Become a Good Basketball Player

    17 Mar 2014 | 12:22 pm
    It is true that some of basketball players seem to have an innate talent for this type of game: they have the ideal height and the right skills that allow playing basketball apparently without paying too much effort into this. It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

    4 Feb 2014 | 9:25 am
    A golf swing is the most elegant and powerful stroke used in golf. It is very difficult to master and takes hours of practice. Among recent golf players Tiger Woods is said to have the best swing. Though many have tried to copy his style, nobody has succeeded. The main reason behind it is that after mastering the steps the mind automatically adapts to it according to a person’s nature. Each individual has his/her signature style. But everybody has to follow the basic steps of swinging. Without those, a perfect swing can never be mastered. Read more [...]

  • Freekickerz: Getting the football under control, the first step to hone your skills

    Sporting E
    15 Apr 2014 | 6:14 pm
    The key to any sport – or anything for that matter – is to have full control of what’s happening. Whether the ball is round, flat, oblong – it is every player’s task to make sure that he is controlling the ball. When he can control the ball, he can defend it; he can pass it ideally to his teammate; he can most likely make that shot or that goal. This explains the age-old piece of advice handed down from generation to generation of footballs players: “a good first touch is getting the ball under control.” This is a crucial step toward taking that huge leap from…

  • A Skill School Helps in your Football Journey

    Sporting E
    1 Apr 2014 | 5:26 pm
    Football requires as much skill as any other sport, if not more. As a matter of fact, naming it “football” can be a little bit misleading – it is not only the feet that are involved in playing the sport… the rest of the body is as well. Apart from the feet, players also use their heads, chests, knees, and legs. On the technical standpoint, that’s a lot of body parts to develop skills for. And because these skills aren’t inborn, children should undergo proper training as early as possible if they wish to even have the chance of turning pro someday. It need not be said just how…

If he fails, however, he may be the recipient of another crown - the best fighter in UFC history to have never won a title.This unwanted and unfortunate honour has a few potential candidates, Kenny Florian and Dan Henderson perhaps being the most noteworthy. Faber is slightly unique though, he can't quite win a world title but he is head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. He is the best of the rest.Faber has had 36 professional fights - 30 wins and 6 losses.

    The Detroit Hustle -- Detroit Lions, Tigers, Red Wings and sometimes Pistons musings

  • Breaking down the goal that gave the Detroit Red Wings the Game 1 win over the Boston Bruins

    19 Apr 2014 | 2:16 pm
    The goal The overlooked thing on Pavel Datsyuk’s game-winning goal on Friday was just how close it was to going the other way. One bounce could’ve led to a goal the other way. One Detroit Red Wings player actually being in the right position could’ve meant the rush didn’t happen. Go back to the beginning of the play. The Bruins dumped the puck in. Datsyuk got to it in the corner, but had Brad Marchand on him, so he touched it up the boards for Abdelkader. Patrice Bergeron closed on Abdelkader, leaving the pick for Reilly Smith. While that happened to Abdelkader,…

    This isn’t like last year. Last year was a half-season sprint. The Red Wings didn’t have time to understand themselves and didn’t fully do so until the second round of the playoffs. They sneaked by a paper tiger in Round 1, but given more time in the regular season they probably finish fourth or fifth and don’t meet the Blackhawks until the conference finals. There are no excuses this year. There are reasons — injuries mostly — but there are no excuses. The Red Wings didn’t built a team under the expectation that they would be able to grind it out…

Sporting News/Optimum Scouting’s Eric Galko (Ha Ha Clinton-Dix) and Fox Sports’ Peter Schrager (Darqueze Dennard) have selected the same player for the Lions at all three checkpoints, but Schrager doesn’t really count because he hasn’t had updated his mock draft since February 28.

The Red Wings had 13 points the past 11 games (6-4-1 record), tied for their highest point total in a segment this season. The extra game helped, but one part of their game had a bigger impact.

  • Exactly how much impact did the ‘prospects’ have on the Red Wings’ season?

    11 Apr 2014 | 6:00 am
    The shot was a good one. Low, hard, on target. It just happened to hit a body. Somehow it popped up, arced over the Marc-Andre Fleury’s head, went off the cross bar and one-hopped into the net. Riley Sheahan was the shooter. Tomas Jurco was the man in front. Tomas Tatar sat on the back door, swiping at the puck not once but twice after it had crossed the line, pushing it into the back padding of the goal. When it’s the goal that guarantees you the playoffs, you make sure it’s in. Everything about that goal was an apt description of the Red Wings’ season, from the time…

    The White House just responded to the We the People petition to make opening day of baseball season a national holiday: For more than a century, American presidents have celebrated baseball’s Opening Day — from President William Taft’s 1910 first pitch from the stands, to President Obama toeing the rubber at Nationals Park in 2010. Opening Day signals a new beginning, not only for the 30 Major League Baseball teams playing for their shot at a title, but for the millions of fans who will follow the 162-game journey — from “Play ball!” through the last out. That…

  • Beer Label of the Month: Gigantic’s Most Premium Russian Imperial Stout

    27 Jan 2014 | 8:00 am
    Gigantic Brewing is one of many small breweries in Portland Oregon, but they help set themselves apart with their fantastic labels. I’ve never had any of their beers so I’ll have to take their word on their claim of making “the best damn IPA in Portland.” The label for their Gigantic IPA isn’t bad but I really like their seasonal beer labels. My favorite is their Most Premium Russain Imperial Stout. I can’t explain what Grasshopper Kaiser Wilhelm is all about, and apparently neither can they: Frank Kozik is the artist that created the label and I…

Perhaps adventure is the wrong word. This process has been fun and thus far rewarding for me. The binder includes “one sheets” on each permanent tap we have with ABV, pricing, style, tasting notes, brewery info, food pairings from our menu, substitutions and some other stuff.

    The NFL is just several weeks away and we bring you another series of Redskins full mock NFL drafts. A rumor has been circulating that the Redskins are considering packaging their second round pick, along with next year’s first rounder to move into the top ten and select an elite offensive tackle. To contrast and compare, I decided to make such a deal in one of this week’s three mocks. As always, we use the “On The Clock” mock draft simulator from our friends at FanSpeak. Three different scouting services are used, giving different rankings for players, which in turn…

    Giants have been busy this off season with many free agent signings and players leaving. Here’s my predicted depth chart for the upcoming season pre-NFL draft for the New York Giant offense: QB: Eli Manning/ Ryan Nassib/ Curtis Painter: This position is all but set in stone two time for Superbowl Champ Eli Manning. He’ll be the starting QB once the season begins and with the resigning of Curtis Painter, it seems unlikely the Giants will go QB at all in the draft after drafting Ryan Nassib in last year’s draft.

    The NFL announced today that the patented goalpost dunk that has been done by recently retired Tony Gonzalez and all pro tight end Jimmy Graham has been banned. Many have come out in defense of the goalpost dunk saying that the NFL now stands for the no fun league. But why do we need to have a celebration of somebody dunking the ball over the goal post? Why not act like players that have been to the end zone before? The act of dunking the ball is a pure individual showboat in a sport that is team orientated. Eleven guys helped make that play a score and the guy showboating the game needs to…

With all of this action and movement, let’s see who got the worst and best of the busiest free agency in NFL history. Here are the bottom five: 5.

The game takes place on a table which is divided by a net in two equal halves.

This peculiar tactic left audiences scratching their heads, curious about the identity of their favorite local performer. It is quite remarkable how much hip-hop has changed since those early days more than 40 years ago. Today, the best MCs are more than just popular – they are pop culture superstars.

A lot of things have changed since those days. Now, in 2014, we have 30 teams and the rules are a bit different from how they stood during the early days of the league. Most notably, the three point shot came into existence in 1980 and forever changed the way the game of basketball would be played. It is that moment forward that I refer to as the “modern” NBA.

Most teams would not be able to overcome such a deficit, but the Titans, who would eventually reach the Super Bowl that season, managed to pull out a victory in this particular game. Penalties can add up quickly and unless your team is championship-bound, too many flags can really hurt your chances at getting a win. Which NFL team is the best at avoiding penalties? Which is the worst? And do the numbers indicate that penalties are a major factor in a team’s success? These are a…
  • Players of the NFL and the NBA: A Side-By-Side Comparison

    Andrew Powell-Morse
    25 Nov 2013 | 12:30 pm
    The NFL and NBA are both full of top-flight athletes around the world. Some of these individuals could make the roster in either league, but many of them are specialized for their particular sport of choice. Using data from our NBA Census and NFL census, we compared the population of each league side-by-side. Our findings are shown below. The first and most basic comparison from our data is the average height and weight of players in each league. It comes as no surprise that NBA players are about six inches taller on average than NFL players. The NFL is heavier by more than 10 pounds, as…

    Why this guy won't be leaving anytime soonWith the January transfer window just a few days away, it seems almost natural to hear media speculation of the leagues biggest superstars changing clubs until said superstar signs a new contract with the club as if nothing ever happened (ex. Luis Suarez). While it was very possible for Suarez to make a move from Anfield, he even wanted to move himself. Now that Liverpool is within a fighting chance with Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal, there is no reason he would leave unless a super club like Bayern Munich came calling and even then you might…

    The CompM4s retains all the great features as the CompM4, but with the battery rotated to the lower right. This allows easier access the brightness control, and gives the optic a slimmer profile. Just like the CompM4, the enhanced energy-usage provides up to 8 years of continuous use from a single AA battery. The crisp 2 MOA dot brightness has 16 positions, 9 daylight and 7 optimized for use with all night vision, especially Gen-3 night-vision technology in current government use.

This is a specialty that defines the red dot sights from Aimpoint. The battery lives of these devices are unbeatable. Even if you leave the devices on, the batteries will last upto 8 years.

    Recently, my youngest daughter came up to me, vary cavalier, asking: "Dad, what is the Illuminati?" In a state of shock at her knowledge of the very word, I found myself unable to speak. Hell, most adults have no idea about the Illuminati. I really didn't know how to answer until suddenly the honesty spewed forth: "Baby, they are a group of people intent on taking over the world." Her response: "Beyonce is a part of the Illuminati." My response: "None." Why no response? I'm not in the business of proving people guilty of things without facts.

    "Life is happening FOR you." Digest that for a little bit. The more you embrace it, the more you realize it is, without question, credible. I first heard those words from Aaron Bomar, a man who has become one of my dearest friends in the world. He's something special folks and he is the real deal."Life is happening for you." Not only do I continue to hear those words--even to this day--but I can hear Aaron saying them in his trademark, never-to-be-mistaken southern drawl. Now, this is a man whose own life story can hardly be mistaken for 'life happening for him.' He grew up in a foster home.

I have gotten to know Brenda a little bit over the past, let's see, two years or so. I got to know her even better several months back when we met. She was sick as a dog but over pizza and chicken wings she told me her backstory. What a story! Abandonment, trauma, despair--all a part of her past. As she sniffed up the cold trying to contain and conquer it, I tried not to sniff up tears. Then, like the plot in a movie you don't see coming she talked about making a difference.

    Author Photo by Adrew FladeboeOne of the features, or consequences of White’s anecdote-driven style is that some of the stories he glosses over are potentially as interesting as those he chooses to elaborate on. For example, at the end of one chapter towards the middle of the book, we are told about an eccentric, to put it mildly, American couple living in rural France who live an isolated life pretending they are in the nineteenth century. They dress in the style of the time and fill their house with antiques and life-size dolls in the appropriate costumes. This chapter ends with a comment…

The Raid 2 (its subtitle, Berandal, was dropped for UK audiences) has been keenly anticipated, of course, but its glorious progenitor set a standard many filmmakers — even those as ambitious as Evans — would simply choose to leave unchallenged.While The Raid came out of nowhere to amaze Western audiences and achieve almost universal critical acclaim, questions lingered over whether something so watertight, so self-contained, so…

    All the main talk leading up to the end of the Premier League season is on Liverpool’s pending home fixture against Chelsea. With the wheels coming off Manchester City’s challenge in a 2-2 draw at home against the relegation-threatened Sunderland on the weekend, it looks as if the title has now shifted to a two horse race. The pressure of having to play catch-up in matches clearly couldn’t be handled by Manuel Pellegrini’s men, having picked up just the one win in their last four. The Citizens will now have to wait until Monday to get back into action at the Etihad against West Brom.

    18 Apr 2014 | 4:16 am
    Fulham will travel to the 6th placed Tottenham in search of those three points that will bring them out of the relegation zone. Even though the stakes are high for both teams, the hosts are supposed to win in order to distance themselves from Manchester United who have a game in hand. The bookmakers favor Tottenham to win and more than one goal to be scored. The hosts had a draw in their last game which doesn’t help at all their hopes of finishing in front of a lack luster Man United. To their credit Tottenham displayed a far better character than their opponents as their managed to come…

    Chelsea vs Sunderland is an interesting Premier League match if only due to the fact that while Chelsea are battling for the title, Sunderland are at the very bottom of the table, and would need more than six points to avoid relegation. It’s no wonder then that The Blues start as favorites with 888sport to win, as they have 1.18 odds to do so. Not many would have seen Sunderland walking away with a point from the match against Manchester City, one could think that to an extent they didn’t even think so themselves. They could have walked away with all three points after Wickham’s brace,…

    Heading into the match with Elche, Atletico Madrid know the title and the points are theirs to lose. The bookmakers favor the hosts for the three points, especially since Elche is on the 15th place in the table and Atletico didn’t lose at home since November 2013. Elche will not be able to count on Ruben Perez for the match against Atletico, as they would have to pay 300.000 Euro to the hosts for the right to use the player belonging to Atletico Madrid. Taking into account the fact that Perez played for the entire 90 minute in the first match of the season, and Atletico had no problem…

    Nationals’ manager Matt Williams pulled budding star Bryce Harper after he failed to run out a ground ball in Saturday’s tilt against St. Louis – Mandatory Credit: Jake Roth/USA TODAY Sports The day hard-hitting phenom Bryce Harper fell into the Washington Nationals’ laps felt like Christmas. An all-around prolifically gifted athlete, nabbing Harper – knowing they’d already drafted Stephen Strasburg – was a sign of hope for Nats’ fans and their organization that help was on the way. Back in 2009, Harper, then 16-years-old and performing for Las…
  • The Issue of Race Rears Its Ugly Head into American Politics

    20 Apr 2014 | 2:37 am
    Congressman Steve Israel (D-NY) made headlines this week when he suggested that there is a component of racism in today’s Republican party. “To a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism”, argued congressman Israel on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’. When asked whether he thought congressional Republicans were racist, he replied “Not all of them, no. Of course not.” Israel’s remark sparked outrage from many conservatives, who accused Israel of playing the so-called ‘race-card’. House…

    Werdum now rides a 4 fight win streak. Image courtesy of   Fabricio Werdum has announced himself as the number 1 contender after a 5 round demolition of Travis Browne on UFConFox11 in Orlando Florida. He cruised to a unanimous decision 49-46 50-45 50-45 victory treating Browne as a human punching bag for the majority of the fight. Travis came out in the first round with his usual aggressive style but he was soon countered and taken down by the dominant Werdum. Once Werdum had him down he spent the round controlling him and looking for submissions, tiring out the huge…

    The epicenter of the baseball season seems to always come from the AL East. In a division full of history and rivalries, the American League East has some of the best teams vying for playoff lights. In a division with the glory and prestige of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox,who will spend the bank for a contending team,the Baltimore Orioles are no slouch whilst having some tradition of their own. The Tampa Bay Rays are always young, energetic, and fun to watch.Meanwhile the Toronto Blue Jays have opened up their pocket strings recently even though last season was an epic failure. It…
  • Nets Sweep the Heat

    9 Apr 2014 | 3:48 am The Brooklyn Nets have faced the Miami Heat four times this season and were successful in every game. Last night at the American Airlines Arena, the Nets defeated the Heat in another close game, 88-87. Rookie Mason Plumlee had 8 points and 8 rebounds and was crucial for the Nets in the end.

Lebron was the only offense for Miami scoring 29 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists. Bosh had 12 points off 5-13 shooting. Against any other team,…

    The championship is finally upon us. In what will be the lowest combined seeding ever, the 7 seed Connecticut Huskies will take on the 8 seed Kentucky Wildcats. Both teams have gone through different roads to get to where they are and have been on fire since the tournament started.

    Fun Times at Coliseum Friday night the Oakland A’s/Seattle Mariners game was postponed due to bad infield conditions. The bad infield conditions were due to an infield that remained uncovered and had endured overnight rainfall. Now in any other ball park this would take some doing but wouldn’t be a issue, at which doesn’t really drain properly this cause sewage backups and mushy on the field conditions (see picture below). Mushy infield dirt caused the game to be rained out without the rain   However what was even more maddening was that the way the organization handled…
  • NL West 2014 Season Preview

    Jose Escudero
    4 Apr 2014 | 12:05 pm
    There’s a tried and true expression that goes, “Anything worth having is worth fighting for” and for some time the NL West has hosted the embodiment of that in sports. The NL West has the most changes of fortune that the majors have seen in the past decade and a half span and it’s not for the lack of trying it’s because the NL West has simply not been able to maintain completeness in the teams that call it home season on season. This is until the Guggenheim group rolled in, seized the Dodgers and dumped copious amounts of money to turn it into NY Yankees West. With a fall of grace…

  • What Would’ve Happened If Nobody Had Gotten Hurt in the NBA This Year

    Jeff Stotts
    18 Apr 2014 | 11:01 am
    When Derrick Rose, the Chicago Bulls’ dervish of a point guard, went down in the 11th game this season, it was the 2012-2013 season all over again. Rose sat out that entire season recovering from a torn ACL and watched his team finish 45-37 and put up a fight against the Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs. This season was supposed to be different — and now it wasn’t going to be at all.Something else wasn’t different: The Bulls managed to finish above .500 without Rose yet again. That was for a whole host of reasons: the remarkable play of center Joakim Noah, the…

    Major League Baseball is slowing down at the same time that its formerly slowest team is speeding up.The New York Yankees haven’t dominated the majors since 2002, winning just one world championship over that period. But they’ve dominated MLB rankings for length of game. From 2002 to 2012, the Yankees’ average length of game was in the top four of the 30 major league teams each season, including five league-leading performances. Yet lately they’ve gotten faster: The average Yankees game has been shorter each year than the year before since 2009, culminating in last…
  • A Hot Goalie Isn’t a Better Goalie

    Neil Paine
    16 Apr 2014 | 4:19 am
    With the NHL playoffs starting this week, all eyes will be on the goaltenders, hockey’s masked men. A goalie’s time on the ice is a solitary existence, with flurries of activity punctuating long periods of inaction. Hockey has been called the ultimate team sport, but all too often the goaltender finds himself alone as the puck approaches.Because the goalie is a team’s last line of defense, it’s no surprise that strong performance in net is incredibly important to winning a hockey game. During the regular season, save percentage (the generally accepted shorthand measure of…
  • Just How Bad Were the ‘Bad Boys’?

    Benjamin Morris
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:24 am
    This Thursday, ESPN22 will air its latest “30 for 30″ documentary special, “Bad Boys,” which explores the notorious Pistons era that brought Detroit back-to-back NBA championships 25 years ago. Along with my colleagues at Grantland who are running “Detroit Week,” I’ll be publishing articles relating to the “Bad Boys” narrative and legacy. This is Part 1, in which I’ll examine whether the Bad Boys really earned their nickname.How “bad” were they? That seems like just the kind of thing a data-driven operation might want to quantify. But…
  • What If An Evil Commissioner Turned Hank Aaron’s Homers Into Singles?

    Nate Silver
    14 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
    Last week I wrote about Hank Aaron, who recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of his record-breaking 715th home run. I concluded that Aaron would still have been a great player — and would very likely have made the Baseball Hall of Fame — even if all of his home runs had been counted as singles instead.Or at least — that’s almost what I wrote. What I actually wrote left a lot of room for interpretation (emphasis added from original):What if Aaron had never hit a home run? What if those 755 round-trippers had fallen for base hits instead? (If we’re trying to isolate…

    DAL at SAS (-9.5)This one reeks of being way too popular to actually come true. The public is all over the Spurs, not just in this game, but in the rest of the playoffs as well. I don't think they will have as easy of a run as everyone thinks, but I do think they dispatch this Mavs team pretty easily. Look for an extended effort from the big three of San Antonio as they win this game by twenty.CHA (+10) at MIA This one I can just see my editors text that I will receive shortly, "Catz, what the fuck is wrong with you?

I used to be a big DeRozan hater because he couldn't shoot and he played the "Shooting Guard" position. The dick swingin wing man out of Compton has put together a nice career and should shine in these playoffs. On the other hand, Catz and I have been absolutely destroyed by the Nets this year. I think we were 1-19 in games where the Nets were involved. I'm not a big numbers guy, but I don't think that's a good percentage. Either way I think the Raptors have a good home game here and…
