    One win from taking the Cavaliers back to the NBA Finals, and one step closer to a title he covets more than any other, James leaned against a padded wall on Monday and hardly resembled basketball's most undeniable force. Instead, he pushed through the pain and delivered 37 points, 18 rebounds and 13 assists - all after an 0-for-10 shooting start - to help the Cavs take a 3-0 series lead. James isn't going to let anything stop him.

    For those who enjoy behind-the-scenes footage from action movies, here’s roughly 18 minutes of Mad Max: Fury Road B-roll footage. Obviously, the finished product is the most exciting , but watching various segments of the film and seeing how the insanity came to life is fun, too. Spoiler alert: The crew didn’t actually cut off Charlize Theron’s arm and replace it with a mechanical limb.Read more...

He hails from Vancouver and looks like the insouciant, chain-smoking, Sartre-quoting philosopher genius/doofus your beloved college girlfriend dumped you for; since the mid-’90s, he’s put out nine records under the (very cool, and somehow available) name Destroyer, a ridiculously random and combative and self-annihilating body of work that encourages you to have a Favorite and, more…

  • Dwight Howard Should Be Suspended For Punching Andrew Bogut in the Face [UPDATE]

    Stephen Douglas
    26 May 2015 | 4:15 pm
    Dwight Howard should probably be suspended for this incident during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals. Howard was tangled up with Warriors’ center Andrew Bogut and then threw an elbow/punch that hit Bogut in the face. The play was very similar to the incident that got J.R. Smith an ejection from Game 4 against the Celtics, and a two-game suspension. Both plays featured contact to the head with a closed fist. Both punches were in retaliation to a shove in the back. J.R. Smith was ejected. Dwight Howard was given a flagrant-1. The actions were equal. It just so happens that Bogut…

    26 May 2015 | 4:16 pm
    Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones was present for the start of organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, according to a source. Footballguys View: Jones has one year remaining on his current contract but there have been no talks yet between the team and Jones regarding a new deal. There's going to be a few other big-name wide receivers who might get new contracts before Jones does. The market for these contracts needs to be set by guys like Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas. There doesn't seem to be any hurry to get a new deal done with Jones.

    Kansas City Chiefs LB Tamba Hali (knee) said he is feeling good as he recovers from a knee scope he underwent this offseason to remove loose cartilage. Footballguys View: There's no word on when the scope happened, but it sounds like Hali is going to be ready to go when training camp starts. Hali took a $3 million pay cut earlier this year, and he's looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2014 where he compiled only six sacks.

'Alex is ready to go,' head coach Mike Pettine said. 'He'll be able to do anything where there's no risk of a collision or getting tripped up.' Footballguys View: Mack is one of the best centers in the league when healthy. Last year after he was knocked out with this leg injury, the Browns really struggled offensively. The Browns know that Mack is crucial to success up front, and they'll be cautious with him as he recovers.
  • Jaguars | Jacksonville wants to run more

    Jacksonville Jaguars RBs T.J. Yeldon, Toby Gerhart and company could see a lot of action this season as head coach Gus Bradley has said the running game will be a point of emphasis in 2015. Footballguys View: Good news for Yeldon here. The team has moved Gerhart to fullback, so his role as a ball-carrier could be quite limited. Yeldon is the player to highlight as the rookie has the ability to be a dominant runner in the pros. While big, Yeldon is not a pure power runner. He does have build-up power, but his footwork at the second level belies his large size. Yeldon has subtle moves to create…

    Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor has the route-running ability, athleticism, work ethic, versatility, speed and technique to be a big weapon for the Eagles in his rookie season, according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang. Footballguys View: With Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) moving on in free agency, the Eagles could turn to Agholor as their top wideout. He's a precise route-runner who knows how to set up defenders and get open. Agholor does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder, and he'll quickly snatch a pass out of the air so he can get to running after the catch in a hurry. His current ADP…

    ONE EASY WAY TO MAKE FOOTBALL SAFER So by and large no one has any suggestions on how to clean football up and prevent the plague of head injuries that may be the death of the sport as we know it, but the answer seems pretty simple if you watch this. It's a solution anyone who's played Halo online knows and knows well: Just turn gravity down, and let the players do the rest. That F will get a lot smaller if you take the M and the A in the equation and reduce them, and what better way to reduce them than to turn Mother Gravity down to a manageable, pleasant level.

Some people may find it distasteful to place monetary wagers on amateur scholar-athlete-warrior-poets who play exclusively for the love of the game. Some people may just not like gambling for any variety of perfectly valid reason. Me? I avoid gambling not because I don't like it. OH NO NO, I do. I just know that I like it a bit too much, and would like to make sure I can afford my bills every month…

    RECENTLY RELEASED FROM THE DISNEY VAULT You're probably familiar with, or at least aware of, Disney's Air Bud series of movies. Beginning in 1997 with the eponymous Air Bud, the film series follows the exploits of Buddy, a golden retriever who can play sports on human teams. The dog played basketball in that first film, and then in 1998, the sequel Air Bud: Golden Receiver found him taking up football. Later films had him play soccer, baseball and volleyball (that's right, hockey fans: they made a volleyball film and then stopped!) Beyond the original series, a number of Air Buddies…

Callaspo Vetoes Trade to Dodgers Tuesday, May 26 Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Callaspo exercised his right to veto a trade that would have sent him to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The deal involved six players in total, per Rosenthal, with Juan Uribe the principal player being sent to the Atlanta Braves.  "I signed my contract here and I…
  • Laquon Treadwell Doing Backflips Excites Fans, Makes Hugh Freeze 'Cringe'

    26 May 2015 | 4:24 pm
    DESTIN, Fla. — Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell has become one of the most discussed players of the college football offseason. When Ole Miss was at its best and dancing in and around the top four of the College Football Playoff in late October and early November, Treadwell was the centerpiece of the high-octane Rebel offense. He had 48 catches for 632 yards and five touchdowns and appeared to be headed for a sixth score—a potential game-winner in the closing seconds of the Auburn game. But he was tackled just short of the goal line and suffered a gruesome broken leg that…
  • Atlanta Hawks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers: Live Score and Analysis for Game 4

    26 May 2015 | 4:22 pm
    One of two things is going to happen when the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers square off for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday night: Either the Hawks will prolong their season, or the Cavaliers will punch their NBA Finals ticket.  It's come to this that quickly. This series had the potential to be a seven-game slugfest until it didn't. On the heels of Sunday's 114-111 overtime loss, Atlanta trails Cleveland 3-0, a best-of-seven series deficit no NBA team has ever erased. With Kyle Korver done for the playoffs and DeMarre Carroll visibly banged…
  • Rory McIlroy Teams Up with Cancer Fund for Children to Design His Golf Shoes

    26 May 2015 | 4:17 pm
    Rory McIlroy seems to be an even better person than he is an athlete, and that's saying something. In each round of the Irish Open, which is set to begin Thursday, the world's top golfer will rock a different pair of shoes that children whose lives have been "impacted by cancer" designed, according to Nike. The four designs were created during a weekend that the Cancer Fund for Children in Northern Ireland sponsored. Each child received their own personalized pair of Lunar Control 3 shoes. They were also available for sale through NIKEiD, with a portion of the proceeds going toward The Rory…
  • Chris Colabello Turning into a Reliable Contributor for Toronto Blue Jays

    26 May 2015 | 3:51 pm
    May hasn’t been a great month for the Toronto Blue Jays, but one of the bright spots for the team has been the recent play of outfielder Chris Colabello. Claimed on waivers by the Blue Jays this past offseason, the 31-year-old Colabello was assigned to Triple-A Buffalo to open the 2015 season. He proceeded to hit .337 with five home runs and 18 RBI in April and won the International League Player of the Month award to earn a call-up to the major leagues. Since making his debut with the Blue Jays on May 5, Colabello has quickly become one of the team’s hottest hitters. In 20 games,…

    MLB Trade Rumors

  • NL Central Notes: Cueto, Gonzales, Schwarber, Baez

    Steve Adams
    26 May 2015 | 5:04 pm
    After missing his start on Sunday, Reds ace Johnny Cueto underwent an MRI on the injured joint today (as FOX’s Jon Morosi tweeted he would earlier this morning), but agent Bryce Dixon said after the fact that the test revealed no tears or structural damage (Twitter link via C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer). The news is a sigh of relief for all parties involved, as a serious arm injury for Cueto would hurt his standing as one of the top free agents on the upcoming open market, whereas an injury would hurt the Reds’ chance of righting the ship and potentially eliminate…
  • Minor Moves: Brett Hayes, Cole Garner

    Steve Adams
    26 May 2015 | 3:40 pm
    Here are today’s minor transactions from around the league… The Indians announced today that catcher Brett Hayes has cleared outright waivers and been assigned to Triple-A Columbus. However, Hayes has been previously outrighted and therefore has the ability to reject the assignment in favor of free agency. The 31-year-old picked up 36 plate appearances while Yan Gomes was on the disabled list and batted .156/.229/.438 with three homers. Hayes has decent pop for a catcher — career .154 ISO — and has caught 25 percent of baserunners that have attempted to steal against…
  • Casey McGehee Accepts Minor League Assignment, Remains On 40-Man Roster

    Ed Creech
    26 May 2015 | 2:06 pm
    TUESDAY: The Giants announced that McGehee has accepted an assignment to Triple-A Sacramento, but the team announced that he has been optioned — not outrighted — to the minors. MLBTR has confirmed that McGehee remains on the club’s 40-man roster and was never technically designated for assignment, despite a prior announcement. As a player with five-plus years of Major League service time and a minor league option remaining, McGehee did have to consent to being optioned to Triple-A, but he did not have to pass through optional or outright waivers. Hank Schulman of the San…

    Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro is starting a rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo, John Lott of the National Post reports on Twitter. The club will have some roster decisions to make when he’s ready to return, particularly with Jose Bautista still limited to DH duties. Navarro has long seemed like a trade candidate, of course, and he could be the most appealing available receiver now that Welington Castillo has changed hands.

    Jeff Todd
    26 May 2015 | 12:21 pm
    2:21pm: Callaspo’s primary motivation was that he liked playing in Atlanta and did not want to play on the west coast, Heyman tweets. 12:13pm: The deal is indeed dead at present, and there is “no indication it’ll be revived,” O’Brien tweets. 11:44am: Callaspo has rejected the deal, as is his right, per Rosenthal (Twitter link). For those unsure of why Callaspo may have declined the move, it’s not clear that he would ever have had a chance to suit up for the Dodgers: Los Angeles may well have intended simply to take on Callaspo’s salary and then…

    No one is waving banners, yet, but there is hope a new DEA Chief may mean a new day for cannabis policy.   Earlier last week, the Justice Department announced that Chuck Rosenberg, who served as chief of staff to the director of the FBI, would be stepping in to replace Leonhart as the administrator of the DEA. Attorney General Loretta Lynch called Rosenberg an “exceptional leader” with “unshakable integrity” in a statement regarding his appointment, yet proponents of pot reform have been left wondering whether the change will be for better or worse.

    How long can drug tests detect cannabis?  Someday we may not need this information, but for now . . .   The most common drug tests used are urine, saliva and hair. Each test has a different detection time which is important to know. The urine drug test is the most commonly used because it is cheap and has a longer detection time than a saliva test. There are several very important factors that can influence how long THC will be present in your urine: Weight Body Fat Amount Used Frequency of Use Since these factors will vary greatly for each individual, there are no definitive guidelines…

  • Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk vs Sevilla 05/27/2015 UEFA Europa League Final Preview, Odds & Predictions

    Anthony
    26 May 2015 | 6:25 pm
    The Final of the UEFA Europa League takes place in the National Stadium in Warsaw, the home of the Polish Internation football team and the venue for the showdown between Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk and Sevilla in what should be a classic tactical battle. Dnipeo are the massive underdogs in their first European final but the team has beaten good teams to get this far and have an excellent defence that will be very tough to break down. Dnipro got the better of Napoli in the semi final and have proven during this campaign that they will stick to their tactical game plan no matter who the opponents…

    Frankie Gavin and Kell Brook fight Saturday at the O2 Arena for the IBF welterweight title. Frankie Gavin enters this fight with a 22-1 record that includes 13 knockouts. Gavin has won three fights in a row since his loss to Leonard Bundu, and that includes a victory over Bogdan Mitic earlier this year. Gavin is the first ever English boxer to become World Amateur champion and enters this fight rather confident despite being a big underdog. Gavin does a good job of moving around the ring and uses his length to his advantage. Gavin is very good defensively and will make his opponent work to…

    Anthony Joshua and Kevin Johnson fight Saturday at the O2 Arena for the WBC International Heavyweight title. Anthony Joshua enters this fight with a 12-0 record and all of his wins have come by knockout. Joshua has had two fights already this year with his most recent coming against Raphael Zumbano Love. None of Joshua’s fights have lasted more than three rounds. Joshua is simply a man’s man at 6’6”, and he lands haymaker after haymaker that none of his previous opponents have been able to handle. Joshua’s jab is effective and he goes for the kill once he knows he has a guy on the…

Linares has won seven straight fights with his most recent win coming against Javier Prieto in December. Linares, at 29 years old, is the second fighter ever from Venezuela to have a belt in three different weight classes. Linares is a skilled fighter who relies on his speed to create offense and defense. Linares gets in and out, as he’ll take his chances but won’t push the issue on the offensive end. Still, Linares…

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • Choose Your Words Carefully When Motivating Your Young Athletes

    21 May 2015 | 1:58 pm
    Your kids want you to be proud of them. This need for a parent’s approval can be a powerful or destructive force when it comes to youth sports. When we communicate goals for our budding superstars, the wording we choose can make all the difference.   New research out of Ithaca College shows the effect parents can have on their kids’ game-time anxiety, which can directly impact their performance and overall enjoyment of the game. Miranda Kaye, a professor in the Department of Exercise and Sport Sciences at Ithaca, knew from previous research that a coach exerts the primary influence…
  • Just An Hour Per Day Of Play Can Boost Young Brains

    Imagine an activity that your kids could do after school every day that would improve their brain’s ability to make better decisions and solve problems.  Online cognitive drills? Special tutors? Actually, researchers at the University of Illinois have found that just an hour of fun, active play not only gets kids in better shape but significantly improves their cognitive functioning.Plenty of previous studies have shown the link between fitness and better academic performance in the classroom but it wasn’t clear if this was a cause and effect relationship or just that smarter kids…
  • Training Your Eyes To Hit That Curveball

    17 Feb 2015 | 12:16 pm
    “Just keep your eye on the ball.”  Seems like simple enough advice for a young slugger at the plate.  That may work in the early years of Little League baseball when the pitches they see  have not yet cracked 50 mph.  But as the fastballs get faster and the change-ups get slower, having quick eyes and an even quicker perceptual brain is the only way hitters will be able to “hit it square” with a round bat and a round ball.   Which is exactly why psychology researchers at the University of California - Riverside (UCR) teamed up with the college’s varsity…
  • The Subliminal Power Of Positive Cheering

    3 Feb 2015 | 7:19 pm
    Young athletes often hear phrases of encouragement like, “dig a little deeper” or “you have to want it more than they do” or, ideally, “be mentally tough.”  For most kids, these words from a coach, a parent or a teammate go in one ear and out the other.  But, what if there was actually some scientific substance to the words?  Could the smiling, confident face of a coach delivering a pep talk actually have a subliminal effect on performance?  While the conscious brain may dismiss this positive talk, the subconscious mind may actually be putting it to work,…

    17 Jan 2015 | 3:44 pm
    As usual, Mom was right.  Her advice to get to bed early is being confirmed by human performance researchers, sleep specialists and sports medicine doctors. Kids, especially young athletes, need more sleep.  While common sense tells us that a lack of shut-eye will cause children to be grumpy from a lack of energy, new knowledge about the brain details how sleep affects not only their physiological functions but also their ability to learn new skills.The more well-known sleep state known as REM (Rapid Eye Movement) is the dreammaker that tries to put our day’s activities into the…

    Sellers of phony baloney sports memorabilia are tainting the billion-dollar-a-year sports industry. Scammers prey on individuals who love sports and are willing to lay down cash for purchases that reflect their fanaticism; their commitment to a team or favorite player. Fearing that a rare, autographed item at the “right” price will get away, a frenzied fan often exits an auction with what he believes to be a little piece of history. However, instead of being signed by his favorite sports figure, what he has actually purchased is a replica of the real thing. Without proper…
  • Why There Are No Weird Sports

    Jennifer Smith
    21 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
    Weird sports – they’re everywhere, and played by everyone. The things people do in the name of sports would curl your toes. No, really: one of those sports is toe wrestling. That didn’t quite make it into the Olympics, but it was not for lack of trying. When you think about it, there really is no such thing as a weird sport. All sports are just a way for humans to turn everyday activities into friendly competition, and explore the limits of our physicality. Tossing an orange ball into a red hoop suspended 10 feet off the ground having only a slightly larger diameter than the ball…

    Ability is everything on the field, court, ice and pitch. If you can’t perform to the best of your physical abilities, someone will be ready to take your place. Your coaches and managers, who should be considered as mentors and borderline parental figures, won’t hesitate to replace you if your body is no longer able to perform the way it once did. This puts an enormous amount of pressure on men and women passionate about the sports they play. Unfortunately, it also fuels a culture of concealing pain and injury, which can have devastating effects on an athletes’ livelihood in both the…

    Noella Schink
    7 Apr 2015 | 9:20 am
    In the good old days (that were bad for extreme sports), keeping up-to-date with cool athletes amounted to magazine subscriptions and the occasional sports program. Often times those dirt bike, skiing and other extreme sports mags were published monthly – and finding a sports show covering anything beyond football, baseball, basketball or hockey was next to impossible. Yes, getting your extreme sports fix also meant waiting for the Olympic games every four years or catching an MX championship meet whenever the networks felt like carrying one. Even cable channels, considered extreme…

  • The 11 Most Important Signees Since Urban Meyer Took Over for the Buckeyes

    Jeremy Birmingham
    26 May 2015 | 11:15 am
    Urban Meyer has never had any trouble recruiting, at least since he took the helm at Florida, his first major job at a major program with major resources. He's churned out first round picks and All-Americans and racked up five-stars in Gainesville; it's a trend he's continued since arriving at Ohio State in November of 2011.  Ohio State's recruiting classes have ranked no lower than seventh nationally since Meyer's arrival. When you're collecting talent at that pace, it's not easy to know exactly who's going to pan out and who is going to flame out, but the Buckeyes have had incredible…
  • At Ohio State, Play-Making Should Become Second Nature for Wide Receivers

    Eric Seger
    26 May 2015 | 10:15 am
    Zach Smith isn't someone to sugarcoat things when it comes to his job, his players, or really, much of anything else. It's why he's such a valuable member of Urban Meyer's Ohio State coaching staff. That's why it shouldn't really be surprising that Smith, just like the rest of the coaches, expects big things from the guys in the wide receivers room on the outside every time they take the field. Especially if they understand the concepts of route-running, their responsibilities as blockers on the edge and have the playbook memorized. "Once they understand the offense and defense they just…
  • Ezekiel Elliott's 2015 Heisman Campaign Gets Its Own Anthem

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM3tIK7U4JM&feature=youtu.be As Purdue taught us: Making rap songs and videos is hard. Thankfully for us, Mekka Don, a friend of the site, is more talented than most.  Today, the Columbus-based rapper released "ZEKE," which is billed as the anthem to the Teflon Wizard's 2015 campaign. Elliott, who played last season with one functioning hand, leads the Heisman betting field in May. If he picks up where he left off against Oregon, then I have a hunch this won't be the last tune the bards craft in honor of St. Louis' finest. Zeeeeeeeeeke.

    Memorial Day weekend has passed, and hopefully between the beach, barbecue, beer and other things most people do on a holiday, you found time to reflect on those we have lost while serving in the armed forces. Yesterday, I spent some time thinking back on a Vietnam veteran from Sidney, OH, who we recently lost—many years after his military service ended. Most Ohio State fans have probably never heard of longtime Ohio State sports information director Steve Snapp, who passed away last week after a lengthy illness. That’s kind of a shame, considering Snapp devoted 38 years of his life to…

    Tim Shoemaker
    26 May 2015 | 5:35 am
    Now, he’s trying to do the same thing at the next level. Simon recorded 20.5 sacks and had 42 tackles for loss in his standout four-year career as a Buckeyes defensive end. He was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year during his senior season in 2012 and was a third-team All-American. Simon played for three head coaches: Jim Tressel, Luke Fickell and, in his final year, Urban Meyer. The Youngstown, Ohio, native was a fourth-round selection by the Baltimore Ravens in the 2013 NFL Draft. Prior to the 2014 season, though, Simon did not make the Ravens’ active roster and was assigned…

    My neighbors had a third birthday party for their kid this weekend. They’re a great couple, both in their early 30’s, and they kind of remind my wife and I of the two of us in our early 30s – except they have their crap together way more than Mrs. Mo and I did. But, it turns out they have the same drunk relatives, doing the same dumb stuff. The real big difference is they bought the house with an inground pool, so their drunk relatives fall into the pool cover instead of the bushes. Memorial Day is a big deal. It’s actually designed as a day of healing, created after the civil war…

    It sucks. You’re in the middle of a lacrosse game, and during a timeout the referee taps you on the shoulder. He wants to see if your lacrosse stick is legal. Your heart drops. You surrender your lacrosse stick over to him as he checks the length, width, and does the infamous ball roll-out and pocket check. Your heart is racing and your palms are sweating the entire time. He blows his whistle and throws his flag. Oh crap. 3-minute, non-release penalty. Man down. Your entire team says they aren’t upset, but you can tell they’ve got resentment. You’re left helpless as…

  • Twins Win Due to Joe Kelly’s Poor Start

    26 May 2015 | 5:59 am
    The Red Sox had a Memorial Day game in Minnesota and had Joe Kelly on the mound.  Kelly has been better as of late, but that would not continue yesterday.  Kelly struggled and didn’t make it out of the 2nd inning and put the Sox in a hole early.  The Sox offense was not able to make up the difference and the Twins coasted to a victory in the series opener. Kelly gave up a single run in the 1st inning when Mauer hit an RBI sac fly.  He got out of the inning without allowing any more runs to score, but he wouldn’t be so lucky in the 2nd inning.  Kelly gave up an RBI double to…

    The Red Sox took to the field in the series finale with their eyes on a series win.  The Sox had Wade Miley on the mound vs. Hector Santiago for the Angels.  Miley has come off a few strong starts in a row and the Sox would need him to continue that trend in order to get the win.  Miley didn’t disappoint and he got all the needed run support when Mike Napoli continued his homerun hitting ways in the early innings. The Sox were the first to crack the scoreboard and grab the lead.  Mike Napoli came to the plate in the 2nd inning and showed that it wasn’t just CJ Wilson he could…

    The Red Sox were coming off a pretty brutal loss as they headed into Saturday game with the Angels.  The Sox had knuckleballer Steven Wright on the mound vs. CJ Wilson for the Angels.  Wright struggled out of the gate, but settled down nicely and let the Sox offense get those runs and then some back for him. Wright got into trouble in the 1st and the Sox were losing before the offense even took the field.  The knuckleball didn’t seem to be fooling anyone in the Angels lineup.  Wright gave up a 2 run RBI double to Calhoun and the Sox were losing 0-2.  It looked like it might be a…

    The Red Sox just lost a series against the Rangers and looked to rebound against the Angels.  The Sox had Rick Porcello on the mound vs. Garrett Richards for the Angels.  Porcello started off well, but when the Angels were able to score 9 runs in the 5th inning that is a hard game to win. The Sox got on the scoreboard first in Friday’s game.  Mike Napoli hit a solo homerun in the bottom of the 2nd to have the home team leading 1-0.  Porcello didn’t allow his first run until the 4th inning when he gave up a solo homerun to Pujols and then an RBI groundout to Krauss.  Sox 1-2.

    The Red Sox came into the game with the series tied and were hoping for a series win.  Clay Buchholz was on the mound for the Sox and in his last few outings he has looked much more like the promising pitcher we need him to be.  Buchholz struggled some in the early innings, but he was able to get into the 8th and give the team a quality start.  Unfortunately he didn’t get much in terms of run support and the team lost the game and the series. Buchholz wasn’t able to get out of the first inning without giving up a couple runs.  He had the bases loaded with one out when he gave…

    By Hal Barnes “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby) Of Rowing and the River I came to rowing rather late in life. I’ve always been an eager participant in human powered travel. Cross country skiing, biking, canoeing, kayaking, hiking – all these activities had my enthusiastic participation. One early spring my wife, also a human power devotee, decided to learn to row.

  • The Nemesis In The Goal

    Jack Bowen
    15 Apr 2015 | 6:26 am
    I despised him, and him me, or so we thought. He was a nemesis without my ever defining him as such. All because of a game. And yet, given a few years and unique circumstances, he became a dear friend, even standing next to me years later at my wedding. All because of that same game. I attended Stanford, recruited as a water polo goalie. Sean Nolan was a year ahead of me, at UC Berkeley, also a recruited goalie. Upon arriving to campus, Stanford and Cal freshmen are indoctrinated with the meme informing them of their mutual dislike—one of those evolutionary vestiges of us versus other.

  • NBA Could Move Finals Up to June 2nd Amidst Sweeps

    25 May 2015 | 6:34 am
    With both the East and West Conference Finals at surprising  3-0 leads, the NBA has started mulling over the idea of moving the finals up a full week. The start of the NBA Finals is scheduled right now for June 4th. For fans, moving up the series would be a good thing. A week in between games would be dreadful. It would kill the momentum of the playoffs and probably kill ratings once the series did start. There are no scheduled events at Oracle Arena or Quicken Loans Arena that would make rescheduling the series a problem. For fans and journalists, it might. It is, after all, the start of…

Seemingly, these were supposed to line Addison and Clark streets for the foreseeable future. The hope was that they would be replaced and put back in the same place after the construction. The Cubs sent a letter to fans in March outlining their plans for the bricks before digging them up: “We are taking great care to preserve and protect your paver as work continues in and around the…

    26 May 2015 | 1:37 pm
    Adrian Peterson is one of if not the top running back in football. There's little doubt that the Vikings will be a better team next season with AP as their starting running back, and for that reason the Vikings continue to insist they won't trade him.I don't think the Vikings are as against trading him as they've indicated publicly, but rather I think no teams stepped up and made an offer the Vikings deemed fair. If Dallas wants to give up multiple first round picks, I think you'd see the Vikings moving on from their talented star. Using AP's cap money to get two solid defensive starters…
  • Looking At Danny Santana

    Erik Voldness
    5 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Danny Santana had a fantastic rookie season. Santana's .319/.353/.472 slash line and his OPS+ of 130 are fantastic numbers for anyone, let alone a 23-year-old in his first big league season. Because of Santana's youth and the fact that he had what appears to be a breakout rookie season, the expectation for Santana is that he will continue to improve and build upon his great rookie season.To be blunt: That's highly unlikely. His strikeout to walk ratio was 98 to 19, and very rarely do players who can't control the strike zone continue to hit at a high level year after year.It's important to…
  • Aaron Hicks: Not a Bust (yet)

    Aaron Hicks is not yet a bust. I realize that's an unpopular opinion amongst the Twins faithful, but a simple understanding of his numbers makes it a fact.Calling Hicks a bust seems to stem from him struggling offensively over the last two seasons in the big leagues. The thought process seems to be that he got two years to show he belonged on the team, and he struggled. Of course, each season was less than half a season's worth of at bats, so Hicks first two years in the big leagues are really the equivalent of most rookies first seasons.To be fair, Hicks hasn't just struggled with the bat,…

And while it is true that Rubio's shooting leaves a lot to be desired, fans as usual focus on the "flashy" part of the game rather than the big picture.When Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown, many fans were convinced that he HAD to be the MVP, because he had won the triple crown for goodness sakes!

The stakes won’t be as high but it’s still a big game for both teams.  Michigan could be another good win against a Power 5 school whereas a win against BYU would help Michigan show that they are making a step back to being a national power.

    Anticipation for the last couple pay-per-views has been low, while the execution has been better than expected, for the most part.

Last month, very few people anticipated that Roman Reigns vs. Big Show would steal the show, but the match was booked perfectly and executed by two professionals.

    Brett Austin

    The Week That Was It wasn’t a pretty game at all. For about a 30 minute span in the 1st half, Real Salt Lake was a mess defensively and couldn’t get anything going in the offensive side of the field. During that span, RSL gave up 3 goals. All were a result of a defensive lackluster performance, which is odd considering that defensive is what this team is building around. After weeks of solid defensive performance, this was a huge set back for the team. The only positive from the 1st half is the scoreline never went 4-0. Elias Vasquez was called for a foul, by dragging a Montreal…

  • “Come To Balance” Special Teams Drill

    Steve
    21 May 2015 | 9:56 am
    There are many times during the kickoff coverage that the defender will actually go through the line, unscathed, with nobody to block him. Or, he’ll break through a block and find himself out in the open.  What do you do next? In this special teams drill, we cover this exact scenario!  The defender is going to come down the field at full speed, and once he gets to a specified point, the returner will begin moving up the field, and then angle in for the angle tackle. The purpose of this special teams drill is for the defender to come to balance, always moving forward, while cha…

  • Special Teams Situations: The “Avoid Opposite” Drill

    Steve
    14 May 2015 | 8:39 pm
    In this special teams drill, the blocker is working on turning his shoulders and the coverage player is working on destroying the up field shoulder. One important thing to remember in kick off coverage is that the front line should never make contact with your kick off coverage people. So when you look at this particular drill, you are going to read the up field shoulder. One of the key features to this drill is that you need to have your coverage player stem to the side opposite of where he is eventually going to make move to in order to keep the blocker in position. The blocker turns his…
  • Special Teams Drill: Hard Hat Fit

    Steve

    Special teams is one of the most commonly ignored, yet vitally important development areas for a youth or high school football team. Coach Jimmy Johnson once stated that teams need to win 2 of 3 phases of the game in order to come out with a “W” – offense, defense, or special teams. In other words, special teams is just as important as offense and defense, and should be treated that way in your game preparation. A good special teams unit requires several team members who are good at blocking after a kickoff or punt in order to allow their returner to gain a large number of yards. Good…

In this kickoff coverage drill, the defender is going to run through the double team using a “dip and rip” technique, while maintaining his balance and then going after the ball carrier.

    15 May 2015 | 2:00 pm
    I feel the most important statistic in determining who wins a basketball game is rebound margin, i.e. the percent of total number of rebounds in the game. Obviously rebounding is influenced by forcing our opponents to take difficult shots while getting good shots ourselves and leading in turnover margin. However, over the years if we […] The post Winning the Battle on the Boards appeared first on Online Basketball Drills.

NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn announced that Dwight Howard's flagrant foul-1 from Monday's Game 4 victory over the Golden State Warriors will stand as called, and will not be upgraded to a flagrant-2.

McDonald was arrested on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence and child endangerment, released on $15,000 bail and cut by the Chicago Bears on Monday. The 911 call from McDonald's ex-fiancee's mother, which surfaced Tuesday, said McDonald broke down a door and tried to take his baby before leaving.

    It's been quite the month for the Miami Marlins. After firing manager Mike Redmond in order to hire general manager Dan Jennings in that role, things have started to spiral out of control. The club hasn't played particularly well under its new leader, and there was some recent controversy when the players did not attend a team charity event. There's been some speculation that the players' decision to skip the event was a protest of the current state of the club, though none of that has been confirmed. As if that weren't enough, the Marlins found themselves in another strange situation…

    Last year I watched a show about Olympic parents, and I wondered, would they all be hard-driving parents?  Were they super competitive? What did they do to help their child achieve championship status? Their answers were not really what I’d expected, but they most definitely made me smile. These are the thoughts that their sports parent behavior broadcast loud and clear: You help your child become a champion by being supportive, not pushy.

    Motivating your athlete in youth sports  is not an exact science; it’s more like an art form. It’s trial and error — a learning process for parents as much as it is for kids because every child is different and every child responds differently to motivational tactics. But before you start looking for ways to help your child get motivated in sports, consider this: Are you keeping the big picture in mind? If your objective is to help your child work hard so they can learn physical, emotional and mental skills that will stick with him or her for life, then avoid these short-term…

    There’s a lot of hype, misinformation, and unrealistic expectations when it comes to playing sports in college. I did my homework and found the top college recruiting myths that need to be busted. Parents and athletes, take note: Myth #1: High school coaches will get you recruited. Your athlete is the only one responsible for his recruitment. Coaches can help, certainly, and provide guidance, but it is the athlete’s job to market himself. Myth #2: Grades won’t matter if you are a really good athlete. Of course, top athletes will be pursued more vigorously, but most colleges want…

Mills was murdered on April 24 and the uncertainty around Collins' role in the episode caused him to drop from a likely first round pick to an undrafted free agent. Unfortunately, that drop probably cost him somewhere in the area of $5 million in guaranteed money (taking into consideration his contract with the Cowboys).

    It’s easy to argue that off season training is the most important phase of any football skills and conditioning plan. Not only will it help the athlete to recover physically and psychologically during the season, it will be hugely important to neurological and physical development of any player. 1. Neurologically, off-season training is where you can consistently repeat your basic technique movements (based on your position: backpedal, throwing, catching, etc.) thus developing the groves in your brain that make a skill ‘second nature’. This is where you can master your craft…

We as a whole tend to stand up for and defend each other at all costs even if we do not know the other guy. The only thing we have to know is he is a lineman like me. This is what makes coaching the offensive line so special yet so challenging at the same time.

      In the video below, ”Only Two things You Can Do,” the Patriots receiver defies the critics who once questioned his ability to be a difference-maker in the NFL. He reads the 2009 post-draft report that labeled him “too small” and “a gimmick prospect,” all while showing how hard work and determination got him to where he is today. Never forget that It’s not the size of the man in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the man.   Visit CoachUp to learn more about the company that connects athletes with private coaches.

    So at last the open water swimming season is upon us, for many of you the arrival of the OW season could not have come soon enough as it is an opportunity to leave the monotony of the pool and venture into the great outdoors!

The question I get asked often as a coach is ‘’Why do I need to train in the pool if I am going to be racing in open water?’’ This is quite a sensible question really, surely you want to be…

    There is not question in my mind that we are coming up on a tough time of year for running, walking, and really doing any type of outdoor exercise.  Nashville gets pretty hot and extremely humid, which isn’t fun.  Signing up for a race, even a shorter one, can really help keep me on track during these summer months.  With that in mind, I thought I would share some of my favorite races that are coming up in these next few months.

  • 5 Steps to Recovery After a Marathon

    13 May 2015 | 1:18 pm
    Sometimes the morning after a marathon I feel like I have been hit by a bus, everything hurts. There have been times in the past that the soreness woke me up in the middle of the night when I turned because it was so painful! Walking down stairs and even sitting on the toilet for me used to be awful for a few days after the marathon. Typically my hamstrings are the tightest muscles on my body post race, there were times it seemed they just would not bend right! Doesn’t this make you want to run a marathon?!?!

I enjoy doing the marathon here because the sights are familiar. I often see spectators out that I haven’t seen in a while, old friends that just happen to be out there cheering someone else on. I enjoy seeing the local companies that volunteer at the water stops and the local high school cheerleaders out cheering us on. The bottom line is that we really do live in a very cool city.

After the Minnesota Timberwolves draft the first player, L.A. has the opportunity to land one of the top two centers or the top guard available.

Having a three-games-to-one lead over the New York Rangers, it seemed as though this 2014-2015 Capitals team — which actually had what it previously lacked most in an experienced head coach — would finally break through and make it to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in 17 years 12` Three one-goal losses later, including a Game 7 series clinching overtime loss at Madison…
  • Washington Redskins: Backfield Presents Options

    Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports The Washington Redskins backfield, led by running back Alfred Morris, was a dominate force and gave defenses around the National Football League fits during the 2012 and 2013 seasons. The rushing attack was ranked number one in that first year, averaging 5.2 yards a carry and 169.3 yards per game. In 2013 the team took a little bit of a slide but were still in the top five, averaging 4.8 yards per carry and 135.2 yards a game. In 2014, Washington’s run game fell drastically, ranking 19th in the NFL in yards gained and its 4.2 yards per carry (ypc) average…

    AP Photo/Luis M. Alvarez Ashburn, VA – Of course, they are rookies going against other rookies (and some first-year veterans that were on the practice squad last year) rather than seasoned NFL veterans. So it’s no surprise that many of the Washington Redskins youngsters looked pretty good during their first NFL minicamp. All the same, the enthusiasm and intensity shown by many of these young players was obvious. Perhaps some of that was because Head Coach Jay Gruden was, at one point, throwing passes to some of them himself. The lucky rookie? Jamison Crowder. “It’s exciting,”…

The collective movement of tens of thousands of people jumping out of their seats in elated amazement quickly faded as Wizards players and fans meticulously and nervously reviewed the video as the replay of the shot was featured over and over on the Jumbotron.

    Moritz Wagner’s ALBA Berlin team suffered a double-digit defeat in the NBBL Top 4 semifinal to Bayern Munich on Saturday afternoon. Berlin, the defending champions of the German U19 league, were outclassed by Bayern Munich and fell into a big hole early. Munich’s pressure defense befuddled ALBA’s guards, who committed a rash of turnovers throughout and struggled to even get the ball across half court at times. Wagner was never able to find a rhythm after picking up a couple ticky tack fouls on the perimeter by over aggressively hedging pick and rolls. As a result, Munich…

Derrick Walton will be a senior when the class of 2016 arrives and Beilein has always preferred to overlap his lead guards by a class. Michigan’s remaining focus in the class of 2016 is likely to shift to the point guard position, although some top prospects like Josh Langford should remain as priority targets, here’s a rundown of the major point targets on Michigan’s board, what they bring to the table and where…

And for some completely unknown reason every single New England Patriots fans seems to think we owe them an apology after the NFL's ruling. The guys at the Visitors Section are here to weigh in on that opinion.

    It’s no secret that I love to pore through the street photography tag in the WordPress.com Reader and share images that catch my attention. Join me on another trip around the world as seen through the eyes (and lenses!) of these seven skilled photographers. This arresting image of a bird in a car — juxtaposed against the unknowing elderly man passing by — mesmerizes me. Taken by Beirut photographer Ghaleb Cabbabé, there’s an element of the macabre about this photograph that I find intriguing. The odd bird and the filthy windscreen create a certain palpable sinister…

    Deflategate is turning out to be the NFL’s ongoing soap opera. From air pressure to legal reports to tarnished legacies, the story continues to give us plenty to discuss and a lot to argue. We’ve debated punishments and disagreed on the severity of cheating by the Patriots and Tom Brady. Also, with the majority of fans most upset because they believe they have been lied to, integrity is a key word being brought up throughout this saga. My challenge to all of us today is that if we demand honesty and integrity from our favorite athletes, we should consider living up to the same standard…

    Coach, You will ALWAYS have critics. Stay focused on why you do what you do and on what matters most! When you get defensive, you look guilty, or like you lack confidence in what you do. And maybe you do. Maybe you ARE doubting your own ability. But responding to frustrated critics rarely does you any good or helps you feel better about yourself or what you do. Stay focused on the players, on what you want to help them accomplish/learn, on your mission and vision for any player you have the honor of working with. You’re not out there for the critics!

Too many people get stuck thinking you “can’t” make different choices after you’ve already made one. Or that you “have to stick with it” because you made a particular choice. So many of choices we turn into “forever” choices are not actually forever choices. You CAN make another, different choice if something’s not working! You CAN change your mind.

Love it or hate it, pool play can be tough on players as they don’t often play 4 games in as many days. Both teams looked fatigued on Sunday, but Florida State found a way to play through it.

    Thomas Threlkeld
    22 May 2015 | 1:45 pm
    The Washington Nationals are one-quarter way through the 162-game regular season, which makes this a good time to assess how the team and its players have done so far in 2015. And since the Nats are on a five game winning streak, winners of 17 of their last 21 and took over first place in the National League East division just last night by sweeping the New York Yankees, it’s also a fun time to do this review, as well. The team is 24-17, in first place and 0.5 games ahead of the seriously slumping NY Mets. In the National League, only the St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers have…

    Here’s the second part of the segment that was started yesterday: the NFL teams report card of how each did in the draft: Miami Dolphins: Grade B+ Miami got their big name wide receiver in Devante Parker, who some see as the best WR in this draft. The pick that really stood out to me was Boise State running back Jay Ajayi, a guy I had as a second round grade drafted in the fifth and can really help the Dolphins run game this season and going forward.

    The NFL draft has now passed and it is time to give these teams report cards on how they did. Arizona Cardinals: Grade: B, Cardinals get a B from me as they do nab DJ Humphries the offensive tackle from Florida who has tremendous upside at the tackle position coming out of Florida. But wasn’t really impressed with the other selections as I question second round pick Markus Golden at the next level in terms of lack of true speed rush. Atlanta Falcons: Grade A-, Dan Quinn is looking like a great hire on paper and so is his team’s off season. Every pick in this draft was well thought…

  • 5 Best Mountain Hunting Rifles

    Mark Griffin
    6 May 2015 | 3:54 am
    Every rifle has its advantages and disadvantages. Some rifles are super light, but not every hunter can shoot them accurately because of the increased recoil. Some great shooting rifles are just too heavy to pack up the mountain. In my experience, a rifle that is light as possible and still allows a hunter to consistently shoot 1 ½ MOA groups is adequate for normal ranges. Not every hunting rifle for 2015 is up for the job, but here are 10 that I would not hesitate to take on an once-in-a-lifetime hunt. Although these selections are made with sheep, goats, mule deer, and elk in mind, no…

    Adam
    24 May 2015 | 1:14 am
    Whether you’re listening to, watching or reading about horse racing, there always seem to be a strong undercurrent of chatter going on regarding lineage and breeding – the process by which one horse is selectively bred with another to produce specific traits in the foal. From the outside looking in, it seems a pretty simple format in that if I have a horse blessed with wonderful stamina but it struggles with speed, then I need to breed it with a quicker horse or a sprinter to produce offspring (or progeny, to give them their official title) with speed and stamina. Of course, the…
  • French Open : Tennis Betting Predictions

    Tennis’ second Grand Slam, the French Open, starts on Sunday 24th May. It takes place over two weeks on the clay courts of Roland Garros, and is universally accepted to be the toughest two weeks of the season. As it’s a Grand Slam, all matches are best of 5 sets, and the final set cannot be settled with a tie-break; unlike the regular ATP events. The King of Clay, Rafa Nadal, has won 9 of the last 10 French Opens with only victory for Roger Federer in 2009 breaking his stranglehold. Federer has also been runner-up on 4 occasions (Last in 2011), whilst Novak Djokovic was runner-up…

It would be ridiculous to say that. Last week, we released an interactive graphic, “The Complete History of the NBA,” which uses a relatively simple formula called Elo to rate NBA teams. Indeed, it currently ranks this year’s Warriors as the fourth-best team in NBA history, although they may rise or fall depending on how the rest of their playoff run goes. Meanwhile, no…

    The stakes in the NBA are incredibly high. Superstar players so dominate the league that decisions on trades, draft picks and free-agent signings could gut a franchise for years or make it a perennial contender. But unlike in sports like baseball and hockey, where luck plays a larger role, in the NBA, the best team usually wins. There’s little forgiveness when a star player gets hurt, and when a team misses its first chance at a title, it may not get another.We wanted a way to visualize each team’s ups and downs. You can find that in the form of our new interactive graphic, “The…
  • A Baseball’s Exit Velocity Is Five Parts Hitter, One Part Pitcher

    Rob Arthur
    22 May 2015 | 3:00 am
    For years sabermetrics has theorized that pitchers can’t control what happens after a batter strikes a ball. Whether it bloops in for a hit, rockets its way to an outfielder’s glove or lands just inches outside the foul line, it’s a consequence of the batter and the defense, but not the pitcher. That argument is what led to Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP), a statistic that attempts to quantify a pitcher’s performance only for the events for which we know the pitcher has definite responsibility (walks, strikeouts and home runs — in sabermetrics parlance, the “Three True…

  • Cavs vs Hawks

    22 May 2015 | 2:16 pm
    CLE +1.5 vs ATLI made the mistake the other night of betting against Cleveland, and then I watched JR Smiff hit some of the dumbest shots in the history of organized basketball. While I don't expect JR to replicate his astonishing game 1 feats, I actually expect a better team performance from the Cavs. Throw in that Demarre Carroll won't be hounding LeBron all night, and you have a recipe for a 2-0 Cavs lead heading back to the mistake by the lake.

    ATL (+1) vs. CLEYou know how LeBron does things. It usually takes him a game to get warmed up and get a good feel for what the other team is trying to do. This is his feel out game. Throw in that the Hawks will be hosting their first ever home game in the Eastern conference finals and you can see why this is a solid points grab. I expect the Cavs to win this series in six games, possibly even five depending on how game 2 goes...but don't be surprised if the Hawks take a game or two early to give the talking heads of the world something to pontificate on over the next few weeks.

    ATL +3 vs WASHawks in an elimination game getting three points on the road? Yes please. These games have all come down to the last few possessions, culminating in Al Horfords offensive foul or game winning putback depending on which team you are rooting for. I don't think that loss is going to sit well with the Wizards. I expect the Hawks to catch fire from beyond the arc and win this game by 15, closing out the series and moving on to face the Cavs.UPDATED LINE:GS vs MEM +5I had to be talked in to this one.

  • Can Barry Bonds Sue MLB?

    Colby Rogers
    24 May 2015 | 6:25 am
    Looking at Barry Bonds’ Baseball-Reference page can turn into a black hole of amazing hitting statistics. In 2004, Bonds had an on-base percentage of .609. .609! A game that sees a successful player failing 60-70% of the time had a player that flipped that narrative on its head and succeeded 60% of the time…all at the age of 39. Players hanging on as viable left fielders or designated hitters into their early 40’s is not unheard of. But the age is what brings us to Bonds possibly suing MLB for collusion. After his final year in 2007 where he still hit 28 home runs and had…

When Haley arrived in Pittsburgh it wasn’t clear what direction the team was headed. Talks of Mike Tomlin on the ever-present hot seat surfaced when the Steelers finished with an 8-8 record in back to back years after losing to Green Bay in Super Bowl XLV. But in 2014, things finally fell into place and the offense clicked on every cylinder. Haley’s offense is finally working and the happiest guy in Pittsburgh might just be Mike Tomlin.

Then a Steve Lombardozzi single broke things open. The hit was followed by two walks and another single, knocking in two runs. A strikeout stopped the bleeding relatively quickly, but that would not be the end of the Indians’ early offense. In the second inning the visitors struck again with two runs, accompanied by some help from a Buffalo error. Again in the third the Indians tacked on to their lead with four…

    When your starting pitcher gives up more home runs than he gets outs, you know you’re in for a long day. Jeremy Guthrie gave up three 3-run homers and a 2-run home run before recording an out in the second inning. The fact that the Yankees only scored 14 runs today is unbelievable, considering the Kansas City bullpen threw seven innings in relief today. Really, I’m just going to sum up the 14-run massacre from the Yankees.

    Ever watched an NBA playoff and realized how great your favorite point guard is at handling the rock?   First thing, notice that ball handling, does not only increases your game, but others’ game as well by stretching the defense, making it easier for players to attack, shoot, etc.  Notice any ELITE player in the game today, doesn’t even have to […] The post 2 Simple Basketball Dribbling Tips appeared first on True Sports Legacy: Online Sports Training.

    After the first game of the season I boldly proclaimed that Melbourne Victory would not just win the league but the whole damn thing. That was on October 10th. The final was 1st vs 2nd, and as the larger Etihad Stadium was pre-booked (can you believe it?) AAMI Park’s 30,000 capacity guaranteed sell-out and an hour before kick-off the scalpers were taking $ 300+ a ticket. It was a glorious Autumnal day, touching 23 degrees without a cloud in the sky. The atmosphere was building and the Victory fans made their procession from a local pub to to the ground en masse. This created quite a…

    The 6 Nations final day had been christened “Super Saturday” as any one of 4 out of the 6 teams could theoretically win the Championship. All 3 games were going to be played consecutively too, which could see more swings and roundabouts than in quite a lot of playgrounds, if you added them all together. So, Wales were up against it and so it seemed were the Italian authorities. Italy’s national airline, Alitalia went on strike on Friday, as did the air traffic controllers which meant many people’s flights were either cancelled or rescheduled. The people we were…

    Jake Cudsi
    26 May 2015 | 1:29 pm
    Paris Saint Germain are willing to offer right-back Gregory Van Der Wiel to Manchester United, in a player-plus-cash deal for midfielder Angel Di Maria. Di Maria has struggled to adapt to the Premier League, after becoming the most expensive transfer in English football to date last summer. PSG are long-term admirers of the Argentinian and have come to understand United want a new right-back, thus Van Der Wiel will be used as enticement for a deal. According to the Daily Express, the Old Trafford side are ready to listen to offers for their record signing, who failed to make a substantial…

    The future of Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez has been cast into doubt, with Real Madrid ruling out his purchase at the conclusion of his year long stay in the Spanish capital. The forward has endured a difficult period, after being shipped out on loan so the Red Devils could accommodate the loan signing of Radamel Falcao. The little pea is now facing the rejection of Madrid, and must find his feet all over again this year. The Daily Express also suggest his role at Old Trafford is at risk.

Laudrup, now with Qatari side Lekhwiya, is said to be interested in a return to English football, with West Ham and Newcastle more than happy to offer the 50-year-old a route back to the top flight of the English game, according to the Telegraph.

    Former England Manager Steve McClaren has been dismissed from his position as head coach of Derby County, due to a torrid run that saw them miss out on the Championship play-offs. The 54-year-old was eager to stay, despite heavily reported interest from Newcastle United. Alas the coach is now jobless thanks to a “thorough review of the 2014-15 season”, reported by the BBC. Dismal McClaren had led the Rams to the Championship play-off final last season, and despite occupying top spot as recently as February, could only manage an eighth-placed finish this term, therefore missing…

Line Ups Southampton set up in their usual 4-2-3-1 with Gazzinga between the posts behind an established back four of Clyne, Fonte, Alderweireld and the unsung Ryan Bertrand.

  • Formula One: Rosberg gets Monaco hat-trick after strategy hinders Hamilton

    Jordan Groves
    24 May 2015 | 9:57 am
    Nico Rosberg has won the 2015 Monaco Grand Prix despite team-mate Lewis Hamilton dominating for most of the race. Hamilton had been on a controlled drive when the Mercedes team elected to pit him after a heavy crash for Max Verstappen that bought out the safety car. This moved Hamilton into 3rd behind his team-mate and Sebastian Vettel; a position that he would be unable to advance from. The hottest temperatures of the weekend greeted the drivers for the Monaco Grand Prix, with the risk of rain almost invisible as a contrast to Thursday practice. Lewis Hamilton managed to hold the lead on the…

    23 May 2015 | 5:26 pm
    In a shocking turn of events, Audi Sport ABT driver Lucas Di Grassi has been excluded from the results of the Berlin ePrix; the race where he took a dominant victory yesterday. The Brazilian had won the race by 8 seconds ahead of Jerome D’Ambrosio; who was subsequently promoted to 1st place. FIA Scrutineers found after the race that Di Grassi’s car didn’t comply with the regulations regarding front wings. The front wing was found to have illegal internal metal reinforcing rods as well as sealed holes in the wing that there shouldn’t have been. Audi Sport ABT considered…

    Lucas Di Grassi has won the 2015 Berlin ePrix after starting from 2nd on the grid. The Brazilian took the lead away from pole-sitter Jarno Trulli before building a lead of 10 seconds to win in impressive style.

Championship challenger Nelson Piquet Jr. worked his way up from 13th to take 5th place. 21,000 fans flocked to the Tempelhof airfield for the Berlin ePrix; the 7th round of the 2014/2015 Formula E World Championship.

  • Formula One: Hamilton takes Mercedes’ 4th consecutive Monaco pole

    Jordan Groves
    23 May 2015 | 6:48 am
    Lewis Hamilton has qualified on pole position for tomorrow’s 2015 Monaco Grand Prix. The British driver has never stated the race from the front of the grid, but will do so tomorrow ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Rain threatened to intervene in the final 12 minute session, but it wasn’t to be, with Hamilton taking pole after Rosberg bailed out of his final run. Hamilton’s performance means that Mercedes have been on pole for the last 4 years in Monaco, with Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg previously qualifying their in 2012, 2013…

    Saddles are one of the most important components on your bike. You should be able to ride all day without noticing it. If it’s uncomfortable then it’s time to take a look not only at the saddle but its position. Saddles are a personal thing and for most cyclists once they’ve found the right one they tend to stick with it using the same one on all their bikes. It’s also important to put comfort before weight. Price doesn’t come into it, just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean you’ll be comfortable! Finding the right saddle This can be a difficult, most of us have tried a…

    21 May 2015 | 9:46 pm
    Jason Whitney James Harden had an epic Game 2 performance in a loss against the Golden State Warriors Thursday night. The Beard had a crazy state line of 38 points 10 boards and 9 assists that unfortunately wasn’t enough for the Houston Rockets as the Dubs would prevail in a one-point victory. However, Harden had a chance to make that stat line a triple-double and a win for the Rockets had he made a snap pass to a wide open Terrence Jones streaking down the middle of the lane instead of looking him off.

      “That’s very boring” jeered Arsenal fans to Mourinho’s charges as the two sides shared the spoils a weekend ago. “I think boring is 10 years without a title,” said Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, in his typically sly manner. While it may have been a battle of words between the two sides, the war has seemingly been won by the men in Blue – should they defeat Crystal Palace and clinch their first title since 2010. In truth, Chelsea have been amongst the most entertaining sides in the league, at least according to statistics. Second only to Manchester City, Chelsea have…

      What a difference two games can make in the league. For Chelsea, it was four points, seeing them sit pretty on top of the logs. For Manchester City it was six points from six, ensuring their grip on third place as they chase down the Gunners to finish as runners up. For Manchester United, they came back empty-handed in two outings, eliminating themselves from a late and unlikely push for the title. And for Liverpool, it was but a point; as a consequence, they have virtually surrendered their much-sought after UEFA Champions League for the next season to United. While they may have been…

But by half time, they were eons ahead of their Portuguese counterparts, having unleashed a devastating 45 minutes of football to lead 5-0 at home.

      Liverpool’s narrative has over the weeks begun taking a different turn; once considered destined to finish out of the European spots, they have gathered momentum over the weeks to slowly but surely stake their claim for a top four finish. Daniel Sturridge’s return from injury may have provided a much-needed psychological boost after a lengthy layoff, after the news of Steven Gerrard’s imminent departure to America caused some invisible damage. But he is not the sole reason for Liverpool’s upturn in fortune – far from it. The revival of Sterling after a string of fatigued…

    Addison Russell is the youngest player in the National League at 21-years-old and he keeps making gold glove plays at a position he didn’t even play regularly before he made his MLB debut with the Chicago Cubs in April. His glove was on display once again in Tuesday night’s game against the Washington Nationals.

    Five games into the Western Conference Finals and it’s hard not to admit that things look pretty bleak for the Chicago Blackhawks.  Despite their trademark stubbornness and clutch play from their leaders, the Anaheim Ducks appear to be overwhelming them with physicality and wave upon wave of offensive attacks.  It has led some to wonder where the toughest blow came from. Was it dropping Game 3 at home so soon after swiping home ice in that triple overtime win? Was it a horrid blunder by Bryan Bickell in Game 5 that led to the Ducks’ winning score? Sure, those moments were tough…

Then I placed myself in the shoes of General Manager Stan Bowman and tried to imagine the cold, helpless feeling that likely overtook him the moment Bickell’s coughed-up puck entered the back of Corey Crawford’s net just 45 seconds into overtime. After all, Bowman is the architect behind the ill-advised 4-year, $16 million contract given to Bickell…

There have been calls for the 34-year-old to either call it a day or be replaced by a younger goalkeeper the club can rely on long-term. And reports suggest de Gea is that man, with Real ready to make a big-money move to tempt him away from Old Trafford and back to the city he…

    Valencia President Amadeo Salvo has claimed that his side won’t sell defender Nicolás Otamendi for a penny less than 50 million Euros. The Argentine defender has been heavily linked with a summer transfer to Manchester United, with the Old Trafford club keen to recruit an elite central defender. But in an interview with Spanish newspaper AS, Salvo has made it perfectly clear that Valencia’s star man won’t be prised away easily. “The only thing we have to say is that Otamendi is a Valencia player and if, as his agent says, he wants to leave, then he has to announce his wishes in…

  • The NFL amends the Extra Point Conversion

    The NFL has changed to PAT to increase the potential for two point conversions by moving the line of scrimmage for the one point kick back to the 15 yard line while keeping the 2 point try on the 2 yard line. But the biggest difference will be the defenses ability to recover and return turnovers for 2 points of their own. Sometimes it feels like the league is trying just a little too hard to make changes that increase the intrigue and excitement of the game. This could end up being an interesting aspect, especially in those moments late in games that can be decided by one point, or it could…

    The first round of the 2015 NFL draft is in the books, and I thought you might enjoy reviewing some of the mock drafts from our friends in the pressbox. For the most, the only predictions that are accurate are either the first few draft picks, or to the extent they correctly anticipated the needs of the teams. For example, Sam Farmer in the Los Angeles Times predicted the Chicago Bears would draft WR Amari Cooper; they opted for Kevin White instead.But the bottom of Farmer's list is notable for his inclusion of several players who weren't drafted in the first round at all. A similar pattern…

    ICYMI.....don't be embarrassed.....I missed it too. With practically no fanfare from the media, the NFLPA has appealed the 10-game suspension given to  Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The libs who dominate the sports media never miss an opportunity to lambaste Goodell as, alternately, a capricious tyrant or an insensitive lout. But like the occupant of the White House who they adore, few if any of them have a clue how the business world, sports or otherwise, operates.In July 2014, Hardy, then with the Carolina Panthers,…

    For the benefit of any recent graduates, Clarence Thomas, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, was the subject of a bitter confirmation hearing when he was nominated to the bench by President George Bush in 1991. The source of the controversy was an allegation that while he worked at the Department of Education and later at the EEOC, he sexually harassed one of his subordinates, Anita Hill. To date, no other women have made similar allegations against Thomas, unlike, say, Bill Clinton. The hearings were held before the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by one Joe…

Unfortunately for us Gunners, it’s been a fair while since a number 9 has really made the crowd roar in N7. Since Arsene…

That statistic doesn’t bother me, and I’m happy with that figure. But in the same poll, a whopping 34 percent of fans believe that Michael Jordan (at 52 years old) would beat LeBron James at 1-on-1 today. And only 54 percent believe that James would win in the match-up.
