    Corey Kluber threw a three-hitter to outpitch Felix Hernandez for his first career shutout and Cleveland defeated the Seattle Mariners 2-0. ''Obviously, it's a challenge going up against one of the best pitchers in the game,'' Kluber said. ''We all look forward to challenges so it's nice to come out on top.'' Kluber's outstanding performance came hours after the Indians traded opening-day starter Justin Masterson to St. Louis. Kluber was so dominating, manager Terry Francona never had a reliever warm up.

    Albert Pujols isn't winning a 40-yard dash anytime soon but, still, Machado (not to mention all of his momentum) is halfway into the dugout by the time he's ready to throw this ball and Pujols still isn't anywhere near first base. The cross-diamond throw wasn't even in the dirt, it was at Steve Pearce's eyes. He just had to stretch into foul territory which, again, wasn't a problem because Pujols was barely in the frame. Just absurd and, even though we've seen him do this before , it never gets old. Read more...

Dioner Navarro had three hits and three RBIs to lead the Toronto Blue Jays to their fifth consecutive victory and complete a sweep of the slumping Red Sox.

Smith joins Romo as the only Cowboys with contracts valued at more than $100 million. Smith was just 20 when the Cowboys took him ninth overall in 2011 out of Southern California. He's off the charts.'' In a statement through his marketing agency, Smith said the Cowboys approached him with what is a cap-friendly deal for the franchise, and the lineman asked his agents to weigh the pros and cons of signing it.

    The Sports Curmudgeon
    30 Jul 2014 | 6:21 am
    There must be an epidemic of tone-deafness running amok in the NFL. The league took a lot of heat from fans and just general folks with regard to the perceived leniency in Ray Rice’s meager suspension for assaulting his fiancée. That was bad; then the NFL allowed/sent one of its vice-presidents to Mike and Mike on ESPN Radio to explain. What that gentleman did was to tell everyone that they did not understand and that the NFL had come down hard on Ray Rice and that there is no way that anyone could think the NFL was soft on domestic violence issues. That message flew like a cement feather.

In a “clarifying statement”, Dungy said he was referring to the distractions that would come from media focus on Sam as the first openly gay player in the NFL. And the Internet damned near exploded… Allow me to venture into this minefield gently: Michael Sam…

Also, Oakland’s shortstop Jed Lowrie kind of sucks and 2014 Jeter wouldn’t provide much of a drop-off. This deal needs to happen. The Yankees must do what’s right for their legend. 2. Ryan Braun to the Phillies The Phillies love people in their thirties with massive contracts. But that’s not the main reason for…

    The Philadelphia Phillies are looking to deal veteran first baseman Ryan Howard before the trade deadline and have told teams they will eat essentially all of the $50 million-plus remaining on his contract. However, the Phillies so far have been unable to assure teams that Ryan Howard will stop being terrible at baseball.  “They’re just not willing to negotiate on it,” said a rival GM. “I said we would even pick up half of Ryan’s contract if they could tell me that he would simply be a serviceable player who provides some power. But they said no. They said he…

If you fail, you spent three years of time and money for nothing. (Obviously you can take the bar exam again, but still.) If you pass, you just pass. There's only relief, not any particular pride, because the best that can be said is you don't have to remember every fucking fact about commercial paper anymore.

I’m still waiting on the mass demonstrations and weenie roasts. We’ve talked about it before and how Brand deconstructed an entire Fox News segment by saying the network was “more dangerous than ISIS.” A bold statement, probably a bit too specific and hyperbolic in the grand scheme, but it works to get his point across.

She’s also good at playing characters that aren’t quite human, notably in Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy. The drawback from having such a status is she sometimes has to keep herself fairly uncomfortable for the bulk of shoot. Take Guardians for example, where Saldana is green from head to toe. That’s her from 3 AM until sometime after quitting time, at least according to this interview with David Letterman. So while Bradley Cooper is off in a studio and Chris Pratt is…

However, that doesn't preclude Bill Belichick and company from checking their account balance when weighing different players for inclusion on the initial 53-man roster. A player such as Danny Amendola may have disappointed some fans last season, but releasing him would actually cost the Patriots $2.25 million, according to OverTheCap.com.

There’s no question that the former Boston Celtics assistant is a competent strategist.

During the 2010-11 season, Wilshere emerged as one of the brightest young stars in football, dominating the Premier League and Champions League alongside Cesc Fabregas. It seemed clear that he would be the best of the many young talents the Gunners were developing at the time. Wilshere had everything: the grit to play in defensive midfield and the technical ability to thrive further up the pitch; an…

Greg Ives, who was shipped over to Earnhardt's Nationwide Series team at the end of 2012 to gain his first experience as crew chief, was chosen Wednesday as Letarte's replacement with NASCAR's most popular driver. Letarte will move to an analyst role with NBC Sports and Ives will move from JR Motorsports to crew chief for Earnhardt.

Then there was Ives, who as lead engineer helped shape the strategy that won all those titles, quiet and calculating and somewhat unknown even to Jimmie Johnson's most ardent fans.

    Overtraining, not training enough, coming back too soon from a previous injury; there are so many reasons why an elite athlete can get injured in the height of their career. However one of the key reasons, I believe, athletes get injured is because they are somewhat disconnected from the emotional aspect. In particular they aren’t in touch with the balance of their masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) aspects. When you are training incessantly, on the road competing and constantly putting yourself into a competitive scenario, you are automatically in the “masculine” aspect.

Sam, a standout college player from the University of Missouri, became the first openly gay player that will eventually be in the NFL. 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.

    CHICAGO – There are three things, Urban Meyer says, that make up the foundation of his Ohio State football team. The first is what he calls “competitive excellence.” The second is a tireless mantra of “point A to B, 4 to 6 seconds.” The third, and perhaps biggest pillar, is the “power of the unit.” Meyer, who’s about to plunge into his third year of guiding the Buckeyes, sounds like a broken record when he talking about all of this.  But it's with purpose and even more so after his team’s late postseason collapse after winning 24-straight games in two years. It's a…

    Coming off of a disappointing end to the 2013-14 season, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be looking to reach the first ever College Football Playoff. It is hard to tell if they will be able to accomplish this as they have lost a few key players and are facing a much tougher schedule this year compared to last. Braxton Miller is now a senior, which means that the quarterback should be much more experienced and comfortable when it comes time for the big games. Even with Miller's experience, the offense could be a little shaky to start the season as Coach Meyer has had to replace most of the…

In contrast to the catastrophic sort of fail that was me attempting to ski last summer, this year I gracefully slowed to a stop, and waved a…

The “playoff” is four teams, but there was a championship game under the BCS and you could describe the other major bowls as “BCS bowls” without confusion. CFP (college football playoff) bowls maybe? I guess I’ll call them that. If you’re not aware, there is a three-year rotation for the semifinals. Year 1: Rose and Sugar. Year 2: Orange and Cotton. Year 3: Fiesta and Peach. So I’m going to go through all three possibilities using last year’s pre-bowl rankings. The Top Four Going by the BCS standings, this is how the…

The game was also significant in that the SEC champion did not win the national championship for the first time in the last eight tries.  Since January 2006, when Texas defeated USC (also at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena), the SEC…

    FEATURED ARTICLE by Erica Quam A small acknowledgement = a BIG game changerI had a friend pick up the phone and call me yesterday to acknowledge me for an email that I had sent out.  She wanted to tell me that she was excited to see the progress I was making.

Now there are believed to be several million players, and hundreds of new courses have opened in recent years.

Tuff-n-uff already broke some barriers in terms of the women’s divisions, having a female fight headline their first ever MMA card. It was the jumping off point for many fighters including Tonya Evinger, Lacey Schuckman, Kaitlin Young, and Sarah Schneider.

  • Setting Triathlon Goals – Racing Happy

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

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

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

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

    14 Oct 2013 | 11:28 am
    Over the last eight months, a lot of people have asked me questions about my back, how I’m healing and when I’ll return to racing. Most of the time, the questions don’t really get at the heart of what I went through. For example, people would ask about my run training, when I really wanted to tell them about how proud I was for being strong enough to rake up a few leaves on my front yard – even if it completely wiped me out and I had to take a 2 hour nap after. I’m not normally comfortable talking about myself at length without someone giving me a good reason, so I feel like…

Below is the report created by Bank of America to show how they’d determine the value of the franchise. If you go to page 4, you’ll see a chart that compares several potential sale prices to annual revenues.

  • Player Insurance and Title IX

    russell@thebusinessofsports.com (Russell Scibetti)
    17 Jul 2014 | 4:58 pm
    Tweet Earlier today I read an interesting article on how Texas A&M was able to essentially discourage one of their top players from entering the NFL Draft by paying for his insurance policy. The basic idea with these types of policies is to cover against the risk of career ending injury and potentially losing out on future earnings by staying in school for another season. It’s becoming more common for players to take out these types of insurance policies themselves, but the premiums can be quite expensive. However, in this case, Texas A&M is paying for the policy, not the player.

    The Indian women’s hockey team came back strongly from a 0—3 defeat to New Zealand to thrash minnows Trinidad and Tobago 14—0 in their third Pool A match of the Commonwealth Games. India displayed immense maturity by learning from their previous defeat and not letting Sunday’s loss affect their game. It was in the fourth minute when Vandana Katariya converted a penalty corner to open the account. Deepika and Rani sneaked in two back-to-back field goals in the 11th and 12th minutes to make it 3—0.

    In a match that is within England’s grasp, India is struggling to stay afloat. When monumental occupation of the crease was needed, the visitors’ leading batsmen were a fleeting presence. It was an outcome that emerged from three factors — James Anderson and Stuart Broad’s penetrative bowling, the batsmen’s tentativeness and a startling failure to exhibit restraint when spinner Moeen Ali came into view. At close on the third day of the third Test here at the Ageas Bowl, India scored 323 for eight in its first innings, still 246 behind England’s 569. M.S. Dhoni (50 batting) and an…

    New York Yankees (Photo credit: Keith Allison) Amid a season where nothing has seemed to go their way, the New York Yankees finally received some well deserved luck the last two evenings in the Bronx. 1) On Monday morning, news broke that the Yankees had traded Yangervis Solarte and pitching prospect Rafael De Paula to the Padres in exchange for their All-Star third baseman Chase Headley. And the trade paid off immediately, as 30-year old Headley delivered the walk-off hit in the bottom of the 14th, putting an end to another painful, offensively anemic game at Yankees Stadium vs. the AL…

Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve.

    2014 Yankee Stadium Blueprint If anybody can relate to the saying when it rains, it pours it would be the 2014 New York Yankees literally. Ironically, it seemed almost proper that the Yankees lose, 3-1 to the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles in four and a half innings. It was the last game of the unofficial first half of this season. The rain-out leaves the Yankees at 47-47 heading into this All-Star Break, and puts them five games back from the top spot in the division. Mother Nature took the Yankees chance away to be to three games behind, which in turn means they would not be a mediocre,…

    Felix Doubront has said openly that he does not appreciate the bullpen role that he has been given by the Red Sox for much of the season.  Doubront indicated that he considers himself a starter, so if he is not to start with the Red Sox he would like to be traded to a team where he would be given that opportunity.  Doubront has also had some poor showing on the mound when he has been called upon from the pen.  Doubront had one of his worst outing of his career in 2/3 of an inning on Monday night where he gave up 8 runs to the Blue Jays in the series opener. It looks as if Doubront has been…

Toronto went out to a quick lead when Rasmus hit a solo HR in the 2nd inning.  Sox 0-1.  The Red Sox were able to tie the game in the 3rd when Holt hit a single and then Pedey hit an RBI double to bring him home.  Sox 1-1.  The tie ball game did not last for long though as Rubby De La Rosa…

    I’m sure Clay Buchholz is a good and decent man. He appears to be happily married with a 4-year-old daughter. He does a lot of charity work. He has never been considered a clubhouse distraction. I have come to the conclusion, however, that this should be his last year with the Red Sox, no matter what happens to Jon Lester. The ups and downs of Buchholz’s career are well-documented, from a no-hitter in his second major league start all the way to the very disappointing 2014 campaign. Despite a 63-39 overall record and a 3.81 ERA, the righty from Texas has had only one consistently…

    Emmanuel Sanders hopped from Pittsburgh to Denver this offseason, leaving Big Ben and the Steelers for another veteran QB in Peyton Manning. All was quiet from Sanders until an interview with 104.3 in Denver on Monday during which he was asked about the difference between Roethlisberger and Manning. I feel like Peyton is a far better leader, in terms of staying after practice, catching balls, wanting guys to get on the same page with him, things of that sort. Shots fired? Apparently, if you ask his former teammate Antonio Brown, who responded to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review with the…

Fan Duel is a great fantasy sports website with both free and paid games available for multiple sports, making it the perfect site for your fantasy basketball needs. The Washington Wizards have to reflect on the 2013-2014 season as a positive for the franchise. They were able to not only make the playoffs as a pretty high seed, but they advanced to the 2nd round. Just about everything went right for the team, except the fact that they got almost no production out of rookie Otto Porter Jr. After a strong summer…

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

The article is terribly researched, and it reads like it was written in Greg Gutfeld's constant sarcastic idiocy.I'm not a soccer fan. Not at all. I enjoy watching the World Cup every four years, but that's it. However, the article she wrote isn't just silly, it's completely incorrect. It would be funny if it was satire.

It can be triggered with a simple song lyric or even driving by an old restaurant. Nostalgia happens. It's unavoidable.Unfortunately, Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor seems to live in nostalgia. Last off-season Taylor named former head coach Flip Saunders as the team's president, despite very little evidence suggesting Saunders would be well suited for the job. And today, he allowed Saunders to become the Head Coach…

    29 Jul 2014 | 7:19 am
    That 25-57 season is behind the Utah Jazz. It was a season of frustration, disappointment, tanking-not-tanking, a yeoman season to do what needed to be done to set up the franchise for the future. And so far, one thing they’ve done is get even younger. Lest we forget, Richard Jefferson was 3rd on the team in total minutes played last year. No one over 30 is going to crack the top seven for minutes played this year. Maybe that’s because Steve Novak is the only player on the roster over 30. But this will not be a second season of 25-57. The roster is pretty much set, and while it…

    For all the success that the Seattle Reign have had this year -- they've lost just once and have now clinched the NWSL Shield with four games remaining -- Megan Rapinoe has not been a huge part. The United States women's national team star has been nursing various injuries for most of the season, but is slowly rounding back into form. She scored an impressive header on Sunday in the Reign's 5-0 win over the Portland Thorns, but the surest sign that Rapinoe close to her old self was this goal on Wednesday against the Houston Dash. It's possible she was actually trying to cross that, but…

    Court scheduling at a tennis tournament is a tricky process of assuaging multiple and conflicting interests, especially when there are television rights involving various countries. And so American John Isner, the No. 5 seed at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C. this week and ranked No. 12 in the world, found himself on the more intimate Grandstand1 court for his second-round match against countryman Steve Johnson. Isner lost, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 7-6 (6). And afterward he told reporters that he "didn't like playing out there." "Speaking to reporters moments after losing his opening match at the Citi…
  • Manny Machado channels Brooks Robinson with amazing stop and throw

    30 Jul 2014 | 7:44 pm
    It's only natural that Manny Machado drew comparisons to Brooks Robinson upon debuting with the Baltimore Orioles as a third baseman. What's impressive though is that he's actually doing his part to live up to the lofty expectations that go along with such comparisons, especially on the defensive side. A little over a year ago, Machado really caught our attention with an amazing play at Yankee Stadium that looked like it came directly from Robinson's classic highlight reel. With his momentum taking him away from the field, Machado flagged a ground ball down and gathered himself to make a…

    30 Jul 2014 | 1:55 pm
    NAIROBI, July 30- Kenya has launched investigations on how its younger athletes are switching allegiance to oil-rich Arab country of Bahrain. The country was incensed when Kenya-turned Bahraini Ruth Jebet turned up at the World Junior Championships in Eugene, Oregon in the U.S. and ran away with the 3,000m steeplechase gold leaving Kenyans in the dust of her sprint. Jebet won the women 3,000m steeplechase event in 9:36.74 with Kenyans Rosefline Chepg’entich taking silver ahead of compatriot Daisy Jepkemei. “We were shocked to find our athlete carrying another countries’ flag.

    LONDON, July 30- Everton broke their club transfer record on Wednesday when they paid £28 million (35.4m euros, $47.4m) to sign Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku on a five-year deal from Premier League rivals Chelsea, the club announced. Lukaku finished as Everton’s top scorer last season after finding the net 16 times in 33 appearances while on loan at Goodison Park, helping Roberto Martinez’s side to a fifth-place finish in the Premier League. The 21-year-old played for Belgium at the World Cup, but his chances of establishing himself at Chelsea were hindered by the arrival of…

The spitting allegations were the reason given by the Disciplinary Committee of continental body CAF to slap a one-year football ban that has been appealled by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) on the Belgian coach. The continental body initially handed Amrouche a two-match touchline ban before announcing the suspension from the game Monday last week. During the match that…

    Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini has always been known as a no-nonsense guy. He is known for getting in the face of officials and his players. So Pelini probably isn’t the one to piss off right? Well the coaching staff at Ole Miss did exactly that. Ole Miss and Nebraska were both recruiting WR Damore’ea Stringfellow who committed to Nebraska earlier in the summer. After a visit to Ole Miss, Stringfellow decommited and committed to Ole Miss.

On one hand, his name comes up in trade talks almost everyday so it makes sense that he would want to focus on where he may end up next season. On the other hand, some people feel like representing your country should override his current situation. Now we are finding out that Love’s decision might have been pushed by someone else. According to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Timberwolves told Love to not play in the World Cup.

    A few months ago, Jackson, our 8-year-old had basketball tryouts to play for the Indy Nets Basketball club here in Indianapolis. It would be the first time he would have a tryout for a team before playing with them. Up to this point he had only played rec leagues, no club teams, no travel teams, and no AAU teams. I could tell he felt a little different about this, and was probably a little anxious. His coach was going to be evaluating his play, his attitude, and his work ethic in comparison to players who had played more basketball experience than him, at a higher level of competition no…

Practicing mindfulness is nothing new – top athletes all over the world use it.

    It was always the last thing my mother and father would say to me before dropping me off at soccer practice or any athletic endeavor I tried when I was a kid. They would say, sometimes shout as I sprinted towards the field, “Do well, and have fun!” It seems like such a simple concept when it comes to youth athletics. I mean, that alone should be the reason why kids are out there playing sports with their friends and getting in exercise as well. But fun seems to be finding its way out of youth sports, at least according to a study done by the Milken Institute School of Public Health at…

We did this all in the same season, instead of playing one sport…each season. Now, don’t get me wrong, while it was a grind I still have thoroughly enjoyed everything, and so have our kids.

  • O-Line: The double team

    Brad DeHaven
    21 Jul 2014 | 1:17 am
    Teaching an offensive line to work together is the most vital part to the success of an offense. From pass blocking to picking up a blitzing defensive player, a lineman must be ready to help his fellow teammate. One key fundamental which I feel should be taught is the double team. This can be done between the center and guard, guard and tackle, as well as tackle and TE. In my opinion the double team starts from the split between the lineman. If the lineman are too far apart, it will take too long for them to work together. By the time they do get to a position where they can function as one,…

    Baseball statistics are meant to be viewed and analyzed over a large sample size, even though the game itself is broken down into individual matchups. Countless times we see good hitters fail to get the job done in key spots of the game or elite closers that buckle under the pressure of a one-run lead. Most of these star players will have success more frequently than others, but it’s those singular scenarios in a game that can be the difference between winning and losing. Of course, it’s not just that one at bat that made the difference in the game. There are always other big spots in the…

A second tip for me would be if your a little wary of a mass start, if you’re worried about being hit or getting swum over or something like that,…

However, as with any strength training programme for a specific sporting discipline, it is important that you focus on incorporating movements and lifts that are relevant to the mechanics of your sport. By that I mean don’t head to your computer, Google ‘strength training’, and print off any old workout. And while that 20 stone Lithuanian gentleman in your gym might be able to…

Since then, the team has made just a couple of tweaks to the current roster. On Sunday they have waived linebacker Brandon Jenkins and put offensive lineman Maurice Hurt back on the regular roster. The second year player had arrived at camp out of shape and was on the Active/Non-Football Injury list. But he finally passed a physical and can now practice with the team. On Monday the Redskins…

The Washington Redskins held a “full-pads” practice this morning… complete with full-fledged hitting, tackling to the ground, live drills, hard throws by the quarterbacks and scraps between players. In every phase of today’s exercises, the players showed that this 2014 Washington Redskins team has a real focus on physicality. Not that they weren’t always coached to be physical. But this team shows all around that in every facet, it’s about hitting, running hard to…

    Rookie wide out Hoffman has drawn the attention of players and coaches. RICHMOND VA – Wide out Cody Hoffman continues to impress in his first NFL training camp.  His size (6’4″, 210lbs.) is obvious when you see him on the field but the thing that really stands out is his hands.  He has a natural ability to take the ball out of the air and this could be a valuable asset for a team when they get inside of the redzone. Over the last four days the young wide receiver — who holds virtually every record at Brigham Young University — has demonstrated that he can pick up an…

    Dustin Johnston Derrick Walton had the unenviable task of stepping in and replacing the National Player of the Year, Trey Burke, as a true freshman. Walton was Michigan’s starting point guard from day one and handled the task with admirable stability. He did what he was asked, deferred to his more teammates and made critical plays in the clutch. But the truth is, Walton didn’t have to replace Trey Burke – Nik Stauskas, Caris LeVert and Glenn Robinson III did that. Things will be different as a sophomore. Caris LeVert will carry much of the heavy lifting, but Walton is going to have to…

College coaches will spend much of the next month recalibrating their recruiting boards and sending out additional offers and setting up visits.

  • Why you need to aim higher than “the best” on your team

    29 Jul 2014 | 4:02 am
    I shared this thought with my 14yo daughter the other night. I let her know I was happy she out works and out trains a lot of her teammates, BUT… I encouraged her to not get complacent with that, to aim higher. After all, in competition, the only people it matters to “outdo” are your opponents! Out working your teammates is great, but you’re not fighting against them in competition. I’m happy to say, she understood exactly what I was taking about The same is true for performance. It’s awesome if you’re the best on your team or in your league or even…

    Today on Facebook, I saw a post by Amanda Scarborough. Her words about a pitcher presences in the circle are spot on! I remember, years ago, seeing a young pitcher on a very new team. She played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

No, every great performance becomes proof that a player is capable of playing that well again, which undoutedly makes him someone to invest in. But that's just not always the case.

    After finishing 70.3 Auckland (and sucking at it!) I knew that it’s time to step up and tackle that 3 headed beast they call Ironman. In the begining I was thinking of doing one in the end of 2014, but in the end I decided to wait till March 2015 and go with Ironman New Zealand. This is how I’m going to prepare for it.

    Sporting E
    15 Jul 2014 | 4:22 pm
    Surfset is the latest fitness craze to hit gym goers. Developed at a Boston gym in 2011, the workout technique is slowly becoming a global trend, as it caters and appeals to different types of fitness buffs and Surfset enthusiasts. The first group consist of extreme sports lovers who enjoy the water but hardly have the time and the means to visit the sea every so often. The second group is composed of landlubbers who may not even attempt to try surfing for real, but have enough curiosity to do the activity indoors. How did Surfset start? The idea behind Surfset was developed by Sarah Ponn, a…

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

    Ever went running only to have your run ruined by the constant jingling in your pockets? Or perhaps you have one of those belt bags that bounce and flop with each running step you take? Maybe you can’t find enough space in those wrist pockets to fit in all the small essentials you want to carry with you during your run? It’s a constant dilemma faced by a lot of runners – finding the pocket bag of just the right size and stability.

    A sport is more than just a game. It is more than just fighting over a ball, scoring, not missing, reaching the finish, or having the best routine – it is a way of life. Transcending and conveying the excitement, the gains, the passion, and the life in the sport for even those outside the playing field to experience have always been the aim and the challenge for sports entrepreneurs. Sports entrepreneurship can, of course, take many forms, each one dealing with a broad range of specialties. Some may choose to offer sports supplies while others may prefer to provide sports equipment.

  • Why the Timberwolves Cannot Settle in Trading Kevin Love

    Jordan Schoon
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:56 pm
    By Jordan SchoonEver since David Kahn decided to not give Kevin Love the fattest, longest contract possible because he wanted to save the five-year max for Ricky Rubio, Timberwolves fans have dreaded the reckoning in 2015 when Love could opt-out of his contract to be an unrestricted free agent.  Due to poor drafting (hi Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson, what's up Derrick Williams!), even worse player development, and being stuck in the grindhouse of the Western Conference, the Wolves' failure to make the playoffs during Kevin Love's tenure has brought down a "trade me or I'm leaving you for…

It’s been over four years since Marvin Austin’s famous ‘Club Liv’ tweet (which, coincidently, is controversial for another reason too), and the University has undergone a number of changes that have been woefully underreported and underrated (see them here).

  • Barry Sanders, DeMarco Murray, Adrian Peterson, & DeSean Jackson | High School Highlight Reels

    21 Jul 2014 | 3:33 pm
    These high school highlight reels are ridiculous. Barry Sanders averaged 10.2 yards per carry, while in high school, but was largely not recruited. He didn't start in high school until four games into his senior season. DeMarco Murray as a senior rushed for 1,947 yards and 27 touchdowns and also caught 22 passes for 624 yards and 7 touchdowns. As a senior Adrian Peterson rushed for 2,960 yards on 252 attempts, an average of 11.7 yards per carry, and 32 touchdowns.   DeSean Jackson caught 60 passes for 1,075 yards for 15 touchdowns his senior year at Long Beach Poly.

    Seems the skies are starting to clear around MSG for the New York Knicks. Newly appointed head of basketball operations Phil Jackson has already made major changes to the Knicks organization that left much to be desired last year. Coaching Change: Mike Woodson was the first change that needed to happen to change the culture in the Knicks locker room. Once Woodson was fired, Phil Jackson turned to Derek Fisher to coach the Knicks with a knowledge of Jackson’s “triangle offense” and years playing for Jackson when he was coach in LA – it will make sure there is no…

It is a game of conquering doubt and embracing the pressure. It is during this game that they find their true strength, the power to win. They find it in prayer, in ritual, and in music.

    NYCFC, the newest club in the MLS which will play its games at Yankee Stadium starting next year, has signed two stars from Europe to open up the club roster in a big way. The first is David Villa, the Spanish striker who will be on the Spanish squad for the upcoming World Cup, was formerly on Atletico Madrid, a club that just won La Liga and made a deep run into the champions league. Villa’s move at the age of 32 comes as a little bit of a surprise as there were many clubs across Europe who still had interest in the striker who has scored many memorable goals in La Liga and for Spain.

There’s one type of slide, however, that Shaka Smart Basketball Campers should avoid: the summer slide. Summer slide is when students forget some of what they’ve learned during the school year. This typically happens when young people don’t read, write, do math or conduct any science experiments when school is out for summer break. The summer slide, also called the “summer slump,” causes problems in the classroom because teachers often spend the first few weeks of school repeating lessons…

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

    As Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas celebrated their inductions in Cooperstown this weekend, the Baseball Hall of Fame announced a change that will make it harder for others to join them. Instead of having 15 years of eligibility for consideration by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America (BBWAA), players will now be limited to 10.1One theory is that the change is designed to exclude players like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, who are known or suspected to have used performance-enhancing drugs.2 But an attempt to target Bonds and Clemens could produce collateral damage.

One of those touches was a great opportunity to win the game near the end of regulation, which he failed to even put on goal. Despite this, and despite a decrease in goals and assists as the tournament progressed (four goals in his first three games, an assist in his fourth, and nary a goal or assist since), he won the World Cup’s Golden Ball award (essentially the tournament MVP).

Alright maybe that last line was the C4 talking, but seriously these are all safe bets. **READER NOTE** The first draft of this article was about to be submitted, when my computer decided it wasn’t good enough and deleted the entire thing, not to be dramatic,…

    Well we took a nice well deserved break for All-Star week or whatever the hell baseball calls it and now we're here for the big fish!! The MLB was kind enough to schedule an easy week of winning for us, so let's go ahead and dominate this shit and get back to pretending baseball is an intense, physical sport.CLE at DET (-185) (Game 2)The old double header. Nothing says, "My sport is the least physically taxing since snooker" like playing two games in a row with no ramifications. Mr. Big D himself, Max Scherzer will be on the mound so you can probably expect a shut out. Speaking of Mr. Big D,…

    HOUSTON (+6) vs. LACI am almost positive this line is a mistake and Vegas actually meant LAC (+6), but this is the way they have it listed, so do yourself a favor and throw a bunch of money down on this. The Rockets have at least 27 guys on their summer league team and players that actually might have a shot at NBA careers. The Clippers? They have Delonte West attempting to make a comeback. Do yourself and your savings account a favor and take the Rockets.

    The Raiders’ lease with Oakland is set to expire after the 2014-15 season, and owner Mark Davis has made it fairly clear that he isn’t thrilled with the current situation in the Bay Area. Whether he seriously plans to move the team as soon as 2015 is still unknown, but you can be sure that he’s going to be exploring his options. Davis’ first choice seems to be a new $800 million stadium that he’s proposed. That would get the team out of the aging Coliseum, which they share with the A’s. There’s also been talk of moving the team to LA, a city that has…

Roberts, a D.C. public defender with a reputation for being a ruthless litigator, beat out two other finalists. The Association was likely looking for someone ruthless after suffering defeat in the 2011 negotiations, and really defeats over the last 15 years. Another selling point for Roberts was the fact she plans to reshape the union with a new leadership team. Chris Paul, president of the Association, spoke…

    The advent of the MLB Wild Card game brought more to the game of baseball than a 163rd game every season. With one more team “making the playoffs” each year, or at least having a real chance to make the playoffs proper, teams see the light at the end of the tunnel and don’t feel the pressure to sell at the deadline like years gone by. When the July 31st trade deadline rolled around, teams more than a couple games out of contention became sellers. There was a much clearer buyer/seller line for a general manager to use. Now, sitting 4.5 games out of the second wild card…

    As a child in the ’90s, baseball was king and the era’s best players were superheroes to me. I didn’t get into comic books until I was much older, so I never spent my youth pretending to be Spider-Man or Batman. No, I spent hours in the backyard pretending to be the great players of the MLB. Cal Ripken Jr., Sammy Sosa, and Chipper Jones were some of the many hitters I imagined myself to be when playing wiffle ball in the side lot. But when it came my turn to step onto the mound, I was only ever one pitcher: Greg Maddux. Despite being born outside Chicago, I grew up a…

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…

  • Royals Fall Short of Comeback, Lose 2-1

    Sarah Davis
    30 Jul 2014 | 6:08 am
      Legend has it that if you score more runs that the other team, you’ll win the game. The Royals must have missed that. It was a horrible quality start for James Shields, if that makes sense. Shields threw an average of 20.67 pitches per inning. While Shields went six complete innings, and only allowed two runs, he wiggled out of jam after jam, and was a bit out of control with his location. The umpires certainly didn’t do the Royals any favors. In the top of the fifth, interference was called on second baseman Omar Infante, and Sam Fuld was awarded third base. Nothing would…

      I don’t get it. Dayton Moore, try as he may, just cant seem to please everyone. On Monday, he traded Danny Valencia for an old backup catcher and a project AAA pitcher. I like the trade. Don’t love it…but its so minor, honestly who cares? Many feel that losing Danny Valencia means losing a good right handed hitter, which is true. There are always two sides to a coin however, and this year has taught us that while we are losing his bat, the defense first minded Royals are also losing his glove. Danny Valencia according to baseball reference is sporting a NEGATIVE WAR…
  • Indians Salvage Series and Beat Chen, Royals 10-3 in Finale

    It can almost be expected when you remember that Ned Yost puts out his “white flag” lineup each and every Sunday. While the season finale loss was frustrating, Royals fans must remember to think about the big picture. Carlos Santana homered two more times and the Indians finally broke out of their slump, ending the Royals’ five-game winning streak with a 10-3 win on Sunday afternoon. The Indians salvaged the series in what was their first win at Kauffman Stadium all season (1-5). Things began well enough for Kansas City. Bruce Chen (2-3) opened the game with three no-hit innings, while…
  • Aoki, Butler Lead Royals Over Tribe, 7-5

    26 Jul 2014 | 8:13 pm
    In the middle of the second inning, I thought the game was over. The Indians had a five run lead, and the offense looked to be dormant. Kansas City started chipping in the third inning, and tied it in the fourth. Carlos “The One Man Wrecking Crew” Santana, and the Cleveland Indians put a five spot on the board in the second inning. The inning scoring in the second inning started with a Carlos Santana big fly to give the Indians a 1-0 lead. With two outs, it would appear to the Royals that Guthrie had limited the damage. Alas, the Indians would go on to score four more runs that…

He, however, will continue to represent Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Kolkata Knight Riders and Big Bash League team Sydney Thunder.

    Cleveland, OH– Cleveland Browns Wide Receiver Josh Gordon will argue that his marijuana charge was caused by secondhand smoke. Gordon is in the appealing process after a year-long conviction is in order. “Dude, I wasn’t the only one who has ever been around pot, yeah I used to smoke, but not this time,” Gordon explained to the press before his agent put his hand in front of Gordon’s mouth. Despite Josh Gordon’s failed efforts to convince the NFL otherwise, he hopes that his legal team will prove his innocence. Tests done on the night of the incident could be inaccurate due to…

    New York, NY– It’s that time again. Every year the NFL owners knee-jerk their way into several rule changes for reasons unknown, and why should 2014 be any different? Although the majority of the rule changes are small and seemingly mundane, there are a few every year that make NFL fans feeling like the world is ending, scratching their heads in disbelief. Let’s take a look at some of the more disconcerting NFL rule changes that have occurred between this season and last: 1.

The list, which comes from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, covers several infractions including fighting, uniform violations and illegal hits. It gives the standard fines for both a player’s first and second offenses. However, this list only covers the league’s most common offenses. The complete list is much longer and more obscure.

    San Francisco, CA– Entering training camp, Runningback was one of the San Francisco 49ers’ stronger positions. A depth chart that boasted Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, Marcus Lattimore, Lamichael James along with rookies Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton would make any defense weary. The 49ers find themselves a little thinner at Runningback now than in previous weeks, with Kendall Hunter tearing his ACL and Lamichael James dislocating his left elbow in the very early stages of training camp. This is Lamichel James’ third elbow dislocation on his left arm dating back to high school, along with…

    Green Bay, WI– It comes as almost no surprise anymore. Aaron Rodgers just doesn’t go to training camp. Plain and simple. He has found that his best practice comes from off the field, and off the practice field especially. The MVP quarterback has made it a personal tradition to use his time during the Packers’ strict 17 day training schedule to sit around, veg out and play as much MADDEN NFL as possible. Mike McCarthy said it has been the ritual every late August since Aaron Rodgers led the Pack to a victory in Super Bowl XLV following the 2010 season. Rodgers claims otherwise. “You…

    There is no bitter way to lose a medal in sports than through disqualification and Nur Ayuni Farhana Abdul Halim must be devastated to know that her 2014 Commonwealth Games‘ journey has ended even before the game starts.  Nur Ayuni, who won the gold medal with Nur Suryani Taibi in the 10 metre air rifle pairs in New Delhi four years ago, was due to compete in the 10 metre air rifle and 50m rifle prone events. Then disaster struck when her competition jacket was lost en route to Scotland. I tweeted YB Khairy last night for details and here is his response: Netizens then went uproar when…

    All good thing must come to an end. As we bid farewell to World Cup 2014 tonight, two football nations will battle each other to claim the title as the “Best In The World“. Argentina vs Germany is the repeat of 1986 final when Diego Maradona inspired Argentina to their only second World Cup title. Can Lionel Messi do the same for the Albicelestes (sky blue and whites)? Or will Germany have their revenge this time? What say you? Germany Is The Favourite On form and on paper, the Germans are the favourite. Any team that inflicted Brazil with a 7-1 defeat at their own back yard must…

    Remember the fun we had in the first semis? Germany put SEVEN past Brazil, Klose became the most prolific World Cup scorer, £50 million man David Luiz had a shocker game and the list goes on and on. I bet many had woke up early morning today (4 am Malaysian time) expecting another exciting match on card. After all, it is Argentina vs Holland and Lionel Messi vs Robin Van Persie. Well, by now, many of us must be disappointed. It’s very much a dull match with the Argentine emerging victorious after surviving the penalty kicks.

    Eight goals in a game of football is entertainment of the highest order, especially when it happened at the semi-final of the FIFA World Cup. Well, not so when the score line reads: Brazil 1 German 7. At 4.30 am (Malaysian time), with a couple of minutes left for sahur (here in KK), the ruthless German side had just taken a 5-0 lead with the last four coming in the space of SIX MINUTES, mind you.  There was an hour left to play but every football fan in the world knew that it was game over.  Oh dear, this is probably the most shocking result ever in the history of the World Cup.
