    Gabriel Paulista could be "fast tracked" into Arsenal's team to face Aston Villa on Sunday, according to John Cross of the Mirror. The Brazilian is yet to be officially unveiled as a Gunners player, but Cross believes he has flown to Paris in order to "speed up" the process and complete legal requirements ahead of his move. Paulista was granted a work permit on Monday, per BBC Sport, in a deal which will set Arsenal back £15 million. Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker's partnership has diminished in recent times, but it's the latter who is most likely to receive the chop. Koscielny's…

    The body control from Charlie Coyle is my favorite part of his game-winning goal in the third period against the Oilers. His entire body is beginning to whip around the net like he's going to attempt a wraparound, but he somehow manages to tap the puck backwards and then throw his stick out to knock it into the net. Those are some soft, soft hands. Read more...

  • 5 Mistakes the Philadelphia Eagles Can't Afford to Make This Offseason

    28 Jan 2015 | 12:12 am
    We tend to think in terms of what the Philadelphia Eagles should do over the offseason. You know, the checklist of needs the team must address, perhaps in some sophisticated order. Maybe it’s not as much about what the Eagles need to do, as opposed to the mistakes they must avoid. The mistakes that, frankly, the franchise cannot afford. Nothing sets a team back quite like misappropriated salary-cap space for an aging free agent or a first- or second-round pick wasted on a complete bust. After all, it’s not the good decisions fans tend to remember. If the Eagles want to move from…
  • Diego Costa Facing Potential FA Ban for Emre Can 'Stamp' During Chelsea Win

    Chelsea striker Diego Costa might be facing an extended period on the sidelines after appearing to stamp on Emre Can during his side's victory over Liverpool in the Capital One Cup. The FA is sure to review the footage after the Spain international came down with force on Can's leg as the midfielder laid on the floor. The 21-year-old was left in agony as play continued, suggesting referee Michael Oliver missed the incident. Former World Cup referee Graham Poll believes the powerful forward should have been issued a red card and may potentially suffer retrospective action, as reported…

    Derrick Rose hit a step-back jumper with 7 seconds remaining in overtime, and the Chicago Bulls ended Golden State's franchise-record 19-game home winning streak with a thrilling 113-111 victory over the Warriors on Tuesday night. ''Anybody can get momentum or anybody can get the feeling they can beat anybody when you beat a team like this,'' Rose said.

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

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

    Madden said “One knee equals two feet.” Three feet don’t equal a catch? Brutal: the job by the refs in the Dallas Green Bay game in the closing minutes. The play in question: a fourth-down pass to the two-yard line by Dallas’ Tony Romo to wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant secured the ball to his shoulder as he landed one foot, held the ball with his left as the second foot came down, then took a third step and a lunge for the end zone with his left arm outstretched. Part of the ball hit the ground, ran up the side of Bryant’s hand, into the air, where he…

Suh was selected second overall by the Detroit Lions in the 2010 draft; Suh would eventually go on to win the defensive rookie of the year. Suh has been named to the Pro Bowl four times and as well been elected to the All-Pro team every season including First-Team four times. It is fair to mention that Suh has had his fair shares of lows to go with his highs.

The issue will be whether Indianapolis has a legitimate reason for imposing the suspension, that holds muster. Richardson–who was inactive against…

    The Tampa Bay Lightning looked worse than bad in Carolina on Tuesday night, as they dropped a 4-2 decision to the Hurricanes.

Give credit to the Hurricanes for pouncing, but Tampa needs to be and can be much bette...

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson revealed today that God, creator of the universe, will call the plays for the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots. Head coach Pete Carroll later confirmed the news.  “If that’s what Russell said is happening, I’ll trust him,” said Carroll. “He’s the one who’s mostly tuned in with the Big Guy. I just hope God gives it to Marshawn Lynch a lot.” Wilson says the decision was made only this morning. “I was talking to God like normal, you know: praying, asking Him for good…

He has continued doing research and experiments in the days since and says he is set to unveil an amazing device he developed that erases memories.  Belichick and his team built a black, handheld device, no bigger than a cellphone, that they say shoots a beam of light into a person’s eyes, erasing their memory.

    The rogue ball boy who single-handedly took it upon himself to deflate the New England Patriots footballs for years without the knowledge of head coach Bill Belichick or star quarterback Tom Brady was reportedly heavily influenced by the video games he played and the music he listened to. A review of what is presumed to be the ball boy’s Twitter feed, @ThePSIguy, show he was heavily influenced by deflation culture. “He seemed like a good kid,” said a neighbor. “But looking back, I did have a flat tire on my Camry once.

    This week’s set of promos for the J.K. Simmons hosted episode of Saturday Night Live stay cool while outside, but soon get heated inside. They’re full of jokes about the blizzard that just hit the northeast, the reality behind Simmons’ initials, and Kenan Thompson doing his best take on what happens in Whiplash. I’m excited to see Simmons in this setting. It can’t be much worse than last week’s episode, plus I want to see how Simmons handles this type of comedy.

  • 5 Mistakes the Philadelphia Eagles Can't Afford to Make This Offseason

    We tend to think in terms of what the Philadelphia Eagles should do over the offseason. You know, the checklist of needs the team must address, perhaps in some sophisticated order. Maybe it’s not as much about what the Eagles need to do, as opposed to the mistakes they must avoid. The mistakes that, frankly, the franchise cannot afford. Nothing sets a team back quite like misappropriated salary-cap space for an aging free agent or a first- or second-round pick wasted on a complete bust. After all, it’s not the good decisions fans tend to remember. If the Eagles want to move from…

Her contract with Stewart-Haas Racing is in its final year, as is the contract between primary sponsor GoDaddy and the race team. Patrick said she planned to remain at SHR as long as she has the support of co-owners Tony Stewart and Gene Haas, and the support of GoDaddy and other sponsors.

    Here are the day’s minor moves: First baseman Hunter Morris has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A, the Brewers announced this week. Morris was at one point considered to be the Brewers’ first baseman of the future, and he posted an impressive .303/.357/.563 batting line at Double-A in 2012. However, he’s slipped to a .260/.315/.453 line in two seasons at Triple-A and missed time with a fractured forearm this season. Morris will play the coming season at age 26.

  • “Wine Club 4 Cannabis”

    27 Jan 2015 | 5:20 am
    Here's another new idea out of California -- a "wine club for cannabis." A subscription-based startup that sends different strains of marijuana to its customers each month has recently debuted in California. Dane Pieri launched San Francisco-based "Marvina" last November. He said his company is like a "wine club for cannabis," in which each of its subscribers receive a monthly shipment of three or four different strains of marijuana with product descriptions, effects and flavor profiles. The subscription starts at $95 per month. Pieri said he came up with the idea for his own business after…
  • Alaskan Resistance to Re-Legalization

    27 Jan 2015 | 4:20 am
    Alaska voted to re-legalize last November.  It's complicated.   Alaska’s capital is tapping the brakes on recreational marijuana. Lawmakers in Juneau have passed a local ordinance that bans cannabis businesses from opening until at least Oct. 19. It’s more a symbolic move than anything. Marijuana companies likely wouldn’t be able to launch before then anyway, as Alaska’s rec law gives the state until late November to craft rules on the industry. The state also has until Feb. 24, 2016 to actually start issuing business licenses. But entrepreneurs fear the moratorium could set…
  • Don’t Miss “High Maintenance”

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:20 am
    Here's a not-so-new show with a cannabis theme -- High Maintenance. The show has announced new episodes are on the way.   High Maintenance centers around a cannabis dealer known simply as "The Guy" (played by show co-creator Ben Sinclair) who slips in and out of the lives of his clients – an eclectic array of Brooklynites, from the likes of a harried personal assistant buying weed for her boss to a misunderstood asexual magician. In this new batch of episodes, "The Guy" is poised to deliver to a new set of clients, all who have vastly different motivations – or lack there of – for…
  • 180 MMJ Dispensaries in Detroit

    26 Jan 2015 | 4:20 am
    Sounds like a new city is emerging out of the debris of the older model.   Detroit has quietly, quickly and surprisingly become a major hub for medical marijuana businesses, with an estimated 180 dispensaries now calling the city home, according to a local official’s estimate. Michigan is one of a handful of MMJ states in the country that doesn’t have a regulatory infrastructure in place for the industry. As such, it’s difficult to keep track of just how many MMJ dispensaries are actually operating at a given time. But 180 in a single municipality is a significant increase from…
  • Re-Legalizing the East Coast

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

    24 Jan 2015 | 8:10 am
    I am a big fan of TED talks because they are inspiring, educational and downright interesting. From health and science to social issues; these talks cover a wide variety of important topics and feature some of the most progressive industry experts. One TED talk that stood out to me in particular was Amy Cuddy who talked about how one's body language shapes who they are. While this talk offers practical for those going on a 1st date, a big job interview or asking for a raise at their current job, I can't help but it apply it to surfing.This past week I went surfing and the waves were much…

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

  • Patriots vs. Seahawks - Super Bowl Pick, Odds, and Prediction

    28 Jan 2015 | 2:32 am
    The New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks play Sunday night at U of Phoenix Stadium in the Super Bowl. While the Seattle Seahawks have the advantage of being at the Super Bowl last season, the Patriots have 17 players with championship experience, which includes Tom Brady who has three Super Bowl rings under his belt. Neither team is wet behind the ears when it comes to big game experience, which makes this game intriguing on many levels. A lot of the early money has been pouring in on the Patriots due to the overall championship pedigree and the coaching advantage with Bill Belichick.

    The Washington Wizards travel to the US Airways Center to battle the Phoenix Suns tonight.  The Washington Wizards have won nine of their last 13 games and will be going for a third straight win after sneaking past the Lakers by 98-92 on Tuesday. John Wall led the way with 21 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists while Bradley Beal added 19 points, but the Wizards really had to battle in what should have been an easy win. After falling behind by double digits early on, the Wizards had to rally and were able to turn the game with a dominant 52-35 second half performance. With the win,…

Chandler Parsons and Monta Ellis led the team with 19 points each, but no one else had much of a game. Dirk Nowitzki scored just 11 points and no bench player scored more than six points as the Mavs struggled mightily against the Grizzlies' hot shooting and solid defense.

DeMarcus Cousins led the way with 28 points and 11 rebounds while Darren Collison added 15 points, but the Kings were just witnesses to what was a ridiculous shooting from the Warriors' Klay Thompson who poured in 52 points with 11 threes. Since their Friday loss, the Kings had a fair shot of snapping their losing streak as they were up against the Knicks, but some wild…

    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.

Quickly Rodgers turned to the right, to where Cobb was planting his foot in the ground three or four yards upfield and preparing to run a simple in-cut; at the same time, his cover man, cornerback Desmond Trufant, was going to…

    The last few weeks have seen some significant changes in on-field personnel for the San Diego Padres. A.J. Preller’s August arrival was clearly the beginning of a paradigm shift in the organization, one that’s quickly putting new faces in the dugout. The resulting surge in season ticket sales has been cause for optimism throughout the front office, especially in light of the biggest elephant in the room: the possibility of the Chargers leaving town, and the implications of being the only show in San Diego. It would be a situation that is largely without precedent. NFL teams have…

    Many NFL teams can attest that success on the gridiron doesn’t always translate into success in the Twittersphere. For NFL Twitter accounts, it’s all about fostering meaningful relationships with followers through timely and consistent engagement. Tweeting regularly is a key component of this strategy. Each tweet has the potential to either attract new followers or solidify the relationship with existing ones. That’s why all NFL franchises dedicate so much time and manpower to ensuring that their social media teams keep churning out those tweets. So which team is doing it best at the…

    About two months before I was set to graduate from Ohio State, I got a phone call from a friend telling me that our friend Tyson Gentry, a walk-on punter/receiver, had suffered a neck injury at football practice and was in the hospital. Initially, I thought it was a bad joke – a year and a half earlier, one of Ty’s best friends had collapsed and died on the practice field at Bowling Green due to complications with sickle cell disease.

    27 Jan 2015 | 11:20 am
    One month before Ohio State kicked off its 125th season of football, we released “The One Who Knocks,” a marriage of Breaking Bad and Ohio State football that was – in our humble opinion – damn near the perfect hype video. Now, with trophies overflowing in Columbus, the knocking is complete. This is not our championship poster, if you can believe that. We have one that's even better coming soon. As always, if you'd like to print these posters out, you can download a high res PDF from the link below. These should look sharp up to 18"x24". [Download Hi-Res Poster] If you'd like to check…
  • Inked: Four-Star Linebacker Nick Conner of Dublin, Ohio is Officially a Buckeye

    Jeremy Birmingham
    27 Jan 2015 | 11:15 am
    Eleven Warriors would like to officially welcome Nick Conner to the Ohio State football program.  There was a time when Nick Conner, who grew up in the shadows of Ohio Stadium in nearby Dublin, Ohio, had given up on the idea of becoming a Buckeye.  The Conner File Class 2015 Position LB Size 6-3/225 School Scioto (Dublin, OH) Composite ★★★★ Rank 8 (ILB) The odds of getting an Ohio State offer seemed to be dwindling, especially as the Buckeyes pursuit of highly-ranked in-state linebackers Jerome Baker and Justin Hilliard seemed to be ramping up. Ohio State had signed four…

    27 Jan 2015 | 10:20 am
    Call it the perfect storm or comprehensive failure, Ohio State's loss to Virginia Tech might go down as one of the weirdest events to program history.  In what was supposed to be a showcase night for a renovated Ohio Stadium — which received a $13.7 million facelift that included the addition of permanent lights, 2,600 new seats in the south stands, new field turf and a swanky tunnel to run out — the Buckeyes sunk to perhaps their greatest nadir under the direction of head coach Urban Meyer in front of the largest crowd ever to watch a football game at the Horseshoe.  After the game,…

    26 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    Hello boys and girls and welcome to the tantrums, where your Uncle B.O.B. is starting to look forward.  No offense to January, but to me it is the worst month of the year and I’m glad we’re almost out.  I’m excited because now we can start to look at other sports besides football.  I hope you don’t mind, but even though it’s January, I have a lot of MLB takes this week.  I know it’s early, but I saw a lot going on so I’m taking advantage.  But first: An anniversary of sorts.  Four years ago yesterday I was “laid off” as part of a corporate restructuring.  I’m not…

    RIP Mr, Cub  Greetings from the Hoodwood where the flags are at half-staff for Mr. Cub Coach K gets his grand victory I’ve never been much of a Duke fan, I think they are the poster boy of the snobby ACC. I detested Duke for being the ones that the pundits pointed to as basketball the “right way” and how they celebrated when Duke stunned UNLV in the 1991 national semifinals in a game I still swear was fixed to give UNLV their comeuppance. The thing is as much as detested the school and program. I actually respected Mike Krzyzewski, he always seemed like a coach who actually believed in…

    26 Jan 2015 | 2:58 pm
    Before checking out for the next couple of days thanks to the Snowpocalypse, I thought I'd take the time to wrap up the action from Sunday afternoon and evening featuring the basketball teams I follow. There is one bit of non-basketball action to mention first though. The Boston College football team will be looking for another offensive coordinator before the start of next season. After two seasons in the job, Ryan Day has left to join the Philadelphia Eagles as the team's new QB coach. He replaces Bill Musgrave in that position. BOSTON CELTICS The Celtics were down big in their game against…

    16 Jan 2015 | 7:17 am
    I am a performance video junkie.  In following people on Facebook or perusing YouTube videos, I have watched an abnormally crazy number of great performance videos related to all types of activities. What has been amazing to me about the comments (beside the incredibly inappropriate and/or negative ones) is the frequency of comments about how talented the performer is.  The second most frequent comment is how the viewer wished he/she could do that.These comments provide great insight into the type of mental conditioning that is so pervasive and so counterproductive to success and…

    "You just have to stay in the moment and understand the game, It doesn't end after the first quarter, second quarter. You just have to keep calm. I've played enough games to understand that. Maybe I didn't do that as well when I was younger.''-Tony Romo, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, after a 24-20 comeback wild-card playoff victory over the Detroit Lions.  Romo provided leadership to the Cowboys with his perseverance, tenacity, composure, and experience.  After being down 20-7 to the Lions, the Cowboys with Romo at the helm, bounced back and took over the game with 17…

  • The Team Virus: Have You Caught It?

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

    As the month of January inches towards its end, most teams have found their groove and shaken loose all the cobwebs associated with integrating new players, adjusting to injuries and the like. As we approach the stretch run heading into conference tournaments, the familiarity of teams starts to show. And this week was a perfect illustration. First things first, let me start by sending positive vibes to Eastern Michigan University as well as Kent State for the difficulties both women’s basketball programs are enduring at this time, as well as the EMU student body.

  • Common asked questions on indoor sports

    Emily Brown

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

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

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

    Ok, we’ll be honest… Over the past few months, news of the Fantastic Four reboot, such as Dr. Doom being reduced to a angry computer nerd, made our hopes for the film being anything more than terrible increasingly slim. Considering the disaster that was the 2005 Fantastic Four film and its 2007 sequel, most aren’t expecting much from the reboot, but the film’s first trailer might change your mind. It changed ours.

  • Joe Kelly – In the Mix?

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

(Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) Last week I wrote about Xander Bogearts probably feeling as much pressure as any Red Sox player entering spring training. Another player feeling pressure, though in a different way, will be 27-year-old Rusney Castillo, penciled in for center field. That position, held down capably by Jacoby Ellsbury before his departure to New…

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

    The winter transfer window has become something of a sideshow in English league football, as its relatively short history is littered with stop-gap signings, expensive flops and the occasional sprinkling of season defining moves. The penchant for short-term thinking in the contemporary English game means that many managers use the January transfer window to address their problems by spending excess amounts of cash, laying the foundation for mixed and often spectacular results. Managers will often stake their reputation on a big deadline day transfer, risking their job on the purchase of a…

While Rose was not without his usual number of highlights, the overall impression of his game was not a positive one. I'm pretty sure most Bulls fans don't care a whole lot, though, because Rose's last jumper ended up deciding the game.

There are worse fates than winning 50-plus games and maybe a playoff series every year, but there is also something unfortunate about succeeding in so many ways and failing to reach the ultimate prize. If the Grizzlies were lucky enough to be able to depend on their grit-and-grind identity, then they also sometimes appeared hemmed in by it. The 2014-15 team is a different squad. With a healthy Marc Gasol leading the way, Memphis has emerged as a bona…

Kagere, the 2011 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup top scorer arrived in the country on Monday night to join the 14-time Kenyan Premier League champions as a free agent after contract with Albanian side KF Tirana was cut short at the beginning of the year. “Kagere is already training with the team. We wanted him to sign a two year contract but he wanted a year’s stay, but we hope we can convince him otherwise,” club’s Deputy…
  • Ghana worthy winners, says Grant

    27 Jan 2015 | 11:22 pm
    MONGOMO, Equatorial Guinea, January 18 – Ghana coach Avram Grant said on Tuesday that his side were worthy winners after a 2-1 success against South Africa took them through to the last eight of the Africa Cup of Nations. “We started the match very well with two or three good chances. We had the match in our hands. I am very happy that the players showed, just as in their last match, a good spirit and good attitude,” said the Israeli. Ghana trailed 1-0 in Mongomo but came back to triumph thanks to goals from John Boye and Andre Ayew and go through as Group C winners. Former…
  • Mourinho cries foul over Costa ‘stamp’ claims

    27 Jan 2015 | 10:29 pm
    LONDON, January 27 – Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho once again alleged that his team were the victims of a “campaign” after they edged Liverpool 1-0 in an ill-tempered League Cup semi-final second leg. An extra-time Branislav Ivanovic header earned Chelsea a 2-1 aggregate win after a high-octane encounter at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, but it was home striker Diego Costa who was the focus of attention after the game. The Brazil-born Spain international twice appeared to tread on opposing players — Emre Can in the first half, Martin Skrtel in the second — and could…

    MONGOMO, Equatorial Guinea, January 27 – Andre Ayew’s late diving header secured Ghana a 2-1 win over South Africa and qualification to the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals as Group C winners. Mandla Masango gave South Africa the lead in the 17th minute, when he smashed home past Ghana goalkeeper Razak Braimah from outside the box. The Black Stars drew level in the 73rd minute through defender John Boye, whose drilled shot screamed under a diving goalkeeper Nhlanhla Khuzwayo. Then Ayew then grabbed the winner in the 83rd minute through a diving header off a cross by Abdul…
  • Algeria win to advance at Senegal’s expense

    MALABO, Equatorial Guinea, January 27 – Algeria secured their spot in the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday thanks to a 2-0 win against Senegal in their last Group C game in Malabo. On a dramatic evening, Riyad Mahrez set Algeria on their way with the opening goal inside 11 minutes, and for a long time it looked as if both sides would be heading through to the last eight. Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb then produced a superb finish to double Algeria’s lead eight minutes from the end to seal a berth in the knock-out stage for Christian…

  • New Browns OC: ‘We are not sure if our starting quarterback is in the building right now or not’

    23 Jan 2015 | 1:07 pm
    Well it didn’t take long for the Cleveland Browns new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo to raise some eyebrows. The Browns QB position will be the most talked about during the off-season and during the draft process. Brian Hoyer is a free agent and the Browns have expressed interest in bringing him back. Then there is Johnny Manziel who’s off the field partying has a lot of people questioning if he is really serious about his craft. With that being said, DeFilippo added fuel to the fire saying he doesn’t know if the starting quarterback is on the team right now.

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

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

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

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

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

    Stephanie Farah
    14 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    At Mississippi State University, one of the most unique symbols of the school’s tradition is the cowbell. Cowbells are ubiquitous at Mississippi State football games, where the collective clanging of these instruments can become deafening—so much so that, in recent years, fans have been asked to “respect the bell” and “ring responsibly.” The school even has a whole website dedicated to proper cowbell etiquette. It appears, however, that not everyone has been minding their manners as of late. The cowbell cacophony reportedly has never been louder than it was…

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

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

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

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

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

    27 Jan 2015 | 10:22 am
    I have to admit that outside of the University of Arkansas and Virginia Tech, I haven't watched a lot of college basketball yet this season. However, it's pretty easy to figure out that the Big 12 and the ACC are very deep in talent, while the Big 10, the Pac 12 and the Big East are very good at the top. The SEC, while still coming up short against the other major conferences, is much improved, even with Missouri having a down year. The big question is which of the two remaining unbeatens, top ranked Kentucky and number two Virginia, will go down to defeat first. Both have had their share of…

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

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

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

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

    Brad DeHaven

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

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

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

It’s a little lighter, yet has more cushion and it is a bit sleeker. It has what Brooks refers to as Super DNA, the best cushion they have yet to provide. It provides their most plush feel yet, without adding a lot of weight. There are also pressure zones on the…

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

  • Shoulder Mobility: Two Exercises to Improve Your Mobility

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

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

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

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

  • FAQ: How can I improve my slapping?

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

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

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

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

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

  • It’s all about the value not the outcomes

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

Notre Dame (19-2, 7-1).  61 points.  The Fighting Irish only have one conference loss–Virginia. Duke (17-2, 4-2).  57 points.  The Blue Devils got Coach K his 1,000th win, but 1,0001 will be tough as Virginia and Notre Dame each get to host Duke in the coming week. North Carolina (17-4, 7-1). …
  • Thoughts on Syracuse – North Carolina

    27 Jan 2015 | 9:04 am
    If you read the final score, you will see that North Carolina won comfortably over Syracuse last night.  If you watched the game, you saw that it was anything but comfortable, as Syracuse lead for large parts of the game and played quite well.  To be sure, North Carolina was careless with the ball–but that is not uncommon for teams that rarely see the aggressive 2-3 zone.  In many ways, this game was a positive for Syracuse, as it showed it can fully compete with top 15 teams.  I know I am more positive than before.  Still… a few nagging things to note.

To get the statistics, I had to rely heavily on this website:  But it reminded me that Addison remains at the top of Syracuse’s career statistical lists: #10 in scoring (without the…

Jim Boeheim’s troops currently tout a 14-5 overall record and are 5-1 in ACC play. That fact bears repeating but for the sake of redundancy, I’ll let the readers make that call. For many college basketball teams that record would be a season to tell their friends about.

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

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

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

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

    Long before Lyle Alzado was crushing quarterbacks and linemen in the National Football League, he was a strong and hard-nosed player at Lawrence High School in Nassau County. A native of Cedarhurst, N.Y., Alzado used to lift weights in longtime Lawrence coach Rich Mollo’s garage while staring for the Golden Tornadoes.

We haven’t actually brewed anything in about a year, and we we’ve used this recipe before, so went with something relatively simple and familiar to ease ourselves back into it.

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

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

Barry replaces Jim Haslett, who was fired after five seasons as defensive coordinator of the Redskins. [Watch this video of Barry explaining what he does.] Barry, who will turn 45 in July, has coached linebackers for the Chargers, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the USC Trojans.

  • Drop The Pro Bowl, Bring In The Skills Competition

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

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

Which leads to the next topic of discussion, who will replace Fewell? The three potential candidates for Fewell’s position are: Raheem Morris, the current Redskins defensive backs coach. Morris seems like he’d be an overwhelming long shot for the position given the lack of connection to…

Unfortunately, a 2012 study in the journal “Pediatrics” found that many children and teens consume too much salt or sodium which increases their risk of having high blood pressure. High blood pressure can lead to a range of heart diseases. Young people should consume no more than 1,500 to 2,300 milligrams of sodium daily. In fact, less is better.

Lilly, 39, spent parts of 15 seasons in the majors now faces a possible conviction and five years in prison. According to the report, the charges stem from an RV owned by Lilly.

    Damian Lillard #0 of the Portland Trail Blazers goes up for a dunk against the Boston Celtics during the game at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon. (Mandatory Credit: ESPN/Getty Images) The stars are starting to align.  As February 15th and the NBA All-Star Game draw closer and closer, the debate swirling around the composition of each conference’s roster rages fierce.  Last week’s announcement of the game’s starters has fueled these debates, as now only reserve spots need to be determined before the rosters are set for the mid-season showdown in Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center.

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

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

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

    Associated Press The Chicago Bears have fired general manager Phil Emery and head coach Marc Trestman on Black Monday. After the dismal 2014 season where Chicago finished in last place, Bears chairman George McCaskey had no other choice but to clear the decks. Mired in locker room in-fighting, media leaks, and disappointing play more change should be on the way in the Windy City.

    New York Giants Tom Coughlin will be the New York Giants head coach for a twelfth season. The Giants will now forge ahead towards the 2015 season. As unfortunate as that is, what is next? Coughlin and company need to solidify their coaching staff. That starts with the league’s twenty first ranked defense. The Giants defense was offensive and Giants general manager Jerry Reese should relieve Perry Fewell of his duties.

    Benjamin Morris

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

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

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

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

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

    TOR (-4) vs. INDI am gonna go head and be the sacrificial pick lamb here. This line looks like a trap, smells like a trap, and definitely has the feel of a trap line. But even after typing that sentence I still find myself thinking its a solid bet. I have had the unfortunate pleasure of watching the Pacers play a couple of times this season, and its not pretty. They do play good defense, but they couldn't score if the ball was a 19 year old sorority pledge at her first kegger. Toronto absolutely wins this game, probably by double digits.DET (+8.5) vs. CLEI read an article this morning that if…

I really don't know, they shouldn't be, but I am getting too many points here to ignore it. Plus Ty Lawson is super embarrassed since his DUI and played like a mini-banshee in his first game back from 1-game absence.

    The Chicago Bulls have been one of the more surprising teams in the NBA this season, flipping the script on almost everything that was expected from them. The wins and losses don’t come out to anything radically different than what most predicted, but the way they’re doing it is radically different than what anyone but the most clairvoyant analyst could have seen coming. Last year, they had one of the best home records in the league at 27-14, and they did it on the back of the league’s 2nd best Defensive Rating, despite having the 28th Offensive Rating.1 In 2014-15, they…

    The tipping point was Monday, December 22, when the Detroit Pistons waived Josh Smith. This magically coincided with a stretch that has brought the Pistons from a 5-23 cellar dweller competing for the right to draft Jahlil Okafor to a team sitting at 14-24, just two games out of the eight seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Smith was shooting 39% from the field and taking 14 shots per game, 2.5 more per game than any other player on the team. No matter how you slice it, getting rid of a player taking that many shots and shooting that poorly can only increase your team’s…

Apparently, even suggesting that the duo isn’t (even though they won’t get what they asked for), we’re dumb, stupid, fans. OR you could be a smart fan and look at the facts and see for yourself.

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

The King of Runners was the first athlete that believed the records are meant to be broken and there is no limit for the human body. Paavo Nurmi established 22 world records ranging from 1500 m to 20 km, a record in running that was equaled only by Haile Gebrselassie. Moreover, The Flying Finn set another 36 unofficial word records during…
  • Luis Enrique – The Scapegoat For Barcelona’s Failure

    11 Jan 2015 | 8:20 am
    Luis Enrique – The Scapegoat For Barcelona’s Failure   Luis Enrique is on the spotlight on every sports website, being considered by many the main reason for Barcelona’s decline. The 44 years Asturian head coach is blamed for completely destroying the atmosphere in Barcelona’s locker room and for his bad tactical decisions. Is Luis Enrique the main reason why the stellar Barcelona lost its edge? Luis Enrique was labelled as the new Guardiola in 2011. His 2008-2011 Barcelona B’s reign was full of success, promoting the team in the second Spanish division in…

    Manchester United – A Devilish Efficiency   Manchester United seems to re-become a real force in Premier League. After the disastrous last season in which Man Utd did not manage to qualify in any European competition, Louis Van Gaal was brought in to save the sinking ship.  After 10 matches in Premier League Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United was lying on an incredible 1oth place. Fortunately, the fate favored the 63 years old Dutch manager and he managed to lead Man United to the podium (after six consecutive wins – 2 of them against Arsenal and Liverpool). The Red…

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

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

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

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

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

    The 6 Most Entertaining NBA Teams On TwitterJan 27, 2015 When it comes to social media, not all NBA teams are in the same league. For some teams, Twitter seems like a total chore – you rarely see anything other than mechanical game updates or recaps posted (we’re looking at you @Spurs). Others actually look like they’re operated by human beings, and can actually be very entertaining follows. Here are our six favorites: 6.

    Instant Reaction: LeBron, Kyrie Carry Cavs Past Pistons For 103-95 WinJan 28, 2015 Detroit got out to an early lead in a sloppy first quarter, but Cleveland got things together and took a 47-39 lead into halftime. The Cavs extended their lead in the third quarter, and then held on the fourth for the easy win. Turning Point: Cleveland closed the second quarter on a 19-8 run, which is when they were able to break away and grab control of the game. Key Stat: When the Pistons beat Cleveland earlier in the season, they did so because they made 17 three-pointers. This team lives and dies by the…

Johnson had a 10-year NFL career with the Redskins, Lions, Chiefs, and Eagles, catching 61 passes for 723 yards and five touchdowns. A very good blocker with sure hands, Johnson parlayed that success into coaching roles at South Carolina State, Division II Shaw University, and then moved up to a role as OC/QBs…

In the Lakers’ first game since Bryant was officially ruled out for the year, Young won’t get that chance. Young hurt his ankle in a Lakers practice earlier in the week, and while it isn’t as serious as first feared – there were early reports it was a sprain that could keep him out for up to 3-4 weeks – it won’t let him play against…

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

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

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

Philbin declined to say whether he would keep Tannehill as the starter against Oakland. “Obviously, it doesn’t feel good. It creates a bunch of stir, a bunch of distraction in the locker room — mostly from the outside coming in and guys having to deal with the distraction of it. So it’s not a good feeling.” The…

    Das Spiel der Nacht: New York Islanders (32-14-1, 65 pts) – New York Rangers (27-14-4, 58 pts) 4:1 BOXSCORE Das war mehr als ein Achtungserfolg für die Islanders, nachdem der Schneesturm fast für eine Verlegung des Spiels gesorgt hatte. Die Rangers hatten gegen ihren Lokalrivalen nicht den Hauch einer Chance. Jaroslav Halak entschärfte 40 Schüsse, bevor Carl Hagelin 8,1 Sekunden vor dem Ende in Überzahlsituation noch der Ehrentreffer gelang, mit dem er die 122 Minuten andauernde, torlose Zeit im Duell gegen die Islanders beendete.

Das Spin-Off Revelations veränderte die Erzählstruktur des Survival-Games, weg von einer Geschichte mit klassischem Spannungsbogen, hin zu einer Episodenform. Jeder Abschnitt endete mit einem Cliffhanger, der erst am Ende aufgelöst wurde. Ein Seriengefühl kam jedoch nicht auf – denn Revelations erschien zuerst auf dem Nintendo 3DS und alle Episoden waren bereits auf dem SD-Stick gespeichert. In Revelations 2 will Capcom dieses Rezept…

    In its second year, President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, seems to be working just fine.

    It was the plan all along – to eventually move to Norway from Australia. We just didn’t expect that both of us wanted to move as soon as possible. Early in 2014 we decided that moving from Australia to Norway was a better-now-than-never decision. I would graduate from university with a Bachelor’s of Journalism at the end of 2014, and due to the massive governmental cuts to the media and continued cuts in staff, it didn’t make me feel all that confident I would find a job as a journalist. At least not the job I want.

  • Minnesota Twins Extend Affordable Ace Phil Hughes

    Terry Ryan and the Minnesota Twins extended Phil Hughes through 2019, effectively making his contract a five-year, $58 million deal. He will earn $9.2 million in 2015 and 2016 before earning $13.2MM annually from 2017 to 2019. Considering his 2014 numbers, the $11.6 million per year average salary is more than reasonable. If you consider the Twins’ recent signing of Ervin Santana, the extension looks even better. Ryan cut a check to Santana for four years and $55 million – a reasonable price to pay for a proven middle-of-the-rotation starter. But that’s roughly $2 million…

    Terry Ryan and the Minnesota Twins made their one move of the Winter Meetings, reaching an agreement with Ervin Santana on a four-year, $55 million deal that features a vesting option that goes into effect if Santana tosses 200 innings in 2018, which would make the deal worth $68 million. It’s the biggest free agent deal in Twins’ history, which says a lot. It’s a smidge bigger than what Ryan gave Ricky Nolasco this time last year, which says even more. Terry Ryan doesn’t dip his toe into the free agent market very often, and when he does, it’s just a toe. No…

    13 Jan 2015 | 4:30 am
    Exercise, Training or Activity? How we categorise exercise is a determinant to how we describe it, or even our feelings towards it.  For the most part, people would describe activities such as running, as hard and football as fun. Regardless, people provide the same reasons for why they don’t ‘exercise’, but perhaps it’s our mindset that’s actually the barrier.  Firstly, I don’t like defining activities as exercise.  In my opinion, you are either training or doing an activity; exercise could define either of these, which is the problem.  If your doing something you enjoy and…

    Tonight the Chicago Bulls travel to Golden State to take on the Warriors and stud guard Klay Thompson — you know, the guy who dropped 37 points in the third quarter of Friday’s game against the Sacramento Kings. It was one of those things you’d struggle to even do in a video game, more specifically NBA Jam. More specifically, the classic video game NBA Jam. His record-setting quarter included nine three balls, going a perfect 13-of-13 from the floor overall and finishing with 52 points on the night. Dude was literally, ON FIRE.

You remember Sainz right? The Jets harassed her during practice in 2010. According to another female reporter who was there, it was the natural outcome of an eye candy “journalist,” and a bunch of overgrown young men, filled with testosterone and not much sense. Anyway… This year, she’s already become the hit of the Super Bowl in her tiny black skirt. Check out the photos that have Twitter buzzing. Safe to say any player would give…

    27 Jan 2015 | 7:16 pm
     Photo Source: In case you've been hiding under a rock for two weeks, there is a bit of controversy lingering heading into Super Bowl XLIV. Here's the situation. The New England Patriots met the Indianapolis Colts during the AFC Championship game to decide who goes to the Super Bowl. The Patriots were victorious by a score of 45-7. Afterwards, there has been speculation that the Patriots staff had deflated their footballs used on offense to less than 12.5 PSI (pound per square inch). Did this trick give the team an advantage? Or did they even cheat the system? As radical as…

     AAU basketball or grassroots basketball at the prep level is vastly different today than it was 20 years ago.

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

Hey, they don't call Detroit, Michigan "Hockeytown USA" for nothing. The Red Wings have won an impressive 11 Stanley Cups, good for third in the NHL all time. But there's a whacky tradition that started in 1952 that this franchise and fan base are perhaps the most well known for.

    (Tom Pennington/Getty Images) It’s been a couple of days. The dust has settled. Yet there’s still no logical explanation as to how in the living hell the Seattle Seahawks were able to win a playoff game (against an elite quarterback and a Super Bowl winning coach) in which they were systematically dismantled for 55 solid minutes of the game. How? Who? What? Why? Huh?Well, there were a few reasons actually, and not all of them down to themselves.

The Chelsea manager reacted furiously to suggestions that his striker Diego Costa had stamped on Emre Can during a fiery encounter. In the aftermath, when asked about on the incident, he told reporters: “I don’t know what you call stamps, and Sky call ‘crimes’ – I have to say it was absolutely accidental.” He sarcastically continued: “We know how much that pundit loves Chelsea and how much he loves me.

The Italian was preferred to former Southampton man Rickie Lambert by boss Brendan Rodgers – a decision which ultimately turned out to be wrong as the striker had another disastrous time on the turf. By all means it was your typical Mario Balotelli performance. Lazy, uninterested and overall very poor summed up by an attempt to lob an in-form Thibult Courtois from an almost…

    Does anyone remember Ryo Miyachi? Probably not. The Japan international is still on Arsenal‘s books having signed for the Gunners in 2011. Having failed to make the grade at the Emirates, the 22-year-old has been sent out on loan to Feyenoord, Wigan, Bolton and now FC Twente. It looks unlikely that the youngster has a lengthy future under Arsene Wenger, especially considering the winger is currently part of the Twente reserve ranks. Then again, if he keeps scoring goals like this one against PSV’s reserves, there could be a future for him yet:

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

However, one of the final candidates for Atlanta’s head coaching vacancy is Dan Quinn.  He had a second interview with the Falcons, and the inside word is that it went very well. Seattle’s comeback in the NFC Championship Game is the reason why Atlanta remains without a coach.  Since Quinn is currently with the Seahawks and Seattle remains in the…

Let me start this article out by stating that the inflation level of the Patriot’s footballs had absolutely nothing to do with the outcome of the game. New England was clearly and obviously the better team in that game. This is evidenced by the fact that New England led at the end of the first half by 10 points (17-7).

We were wrong. The Indianapolis Colts beat the odds as well as the Broncos in their 24-13 win. So, should we reconsider this team as a contender, or was this just a great game for them? The main reason the Colts were able to beat the Broncos was that they held them to just 13 points. Defense wins games. One thing the Colts did right in this game was applying pressure on third downs.

  • Heavy Duty Solar Generators: 5 Best Heavy Duty Portable Solar Generator Systems

    Amanda Swan
    16 Jan 2015 | 7:54 am
    Yesterday we posted a listicle of five cool briefcase solar generators. Today I would like to cover five compact, heavy duty solar generators that are capable to generate electricity over 1000Wh. Unlike briefcase-style solar units, these enormous products are designed to be wheeled around rather than be carried on shoulders. For that reason, the below products may not be fit for all your outings. Instead they are more ideal for off-the-grid outdoor parties, events or shows, unless you make your outings with a lot of friends and in a mood to put up massive loads in a truck.
  • Briefcase Solar Generator: Five Best Selling Portable Briefcase Solar Generators

    15 Jan 2015 | 7:48 am
    The most comfortable, friendly design for a portable solar generator looks to be briefcase style. For any traveler or outdoorsman, it will no longer be a burden to carry along a briefcase-esque solar generator, and that is why there are too many portable solar power units designed in form of the shoulder-friendly briefcases, with strong shoulder straps and handles. Here I would like to make a run-through a number of briefcase solar generator models. The items listed below are some of the most selling models on portable solar market today so that I think you can easily pick one…

  • Chelsea striker hoping for Capital One Cup spark

    27 Jan 2015 | 2:05 pm
    Chelsea striker Didier Drogba is hoping the Capital One Cup can spark further success this season. The Blues take on Liverpool in the second leg of their Capital One cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge tonight following the thrilling 1-1 draw at Anfield last week. They also lead the Premier League title race by five points and are into the last 16 of the Champions League, although their defeat to Bradford in the FA Cup on Saturday has ended their hopes of a quadruple. Now, Drogba, who was part of the side that beat Liverpool in the final in Jose Mourinho’s first success a decade ago, has said…
  • Allegri wary of Parma backlash in Coppa Italia

    27 Jan 2015 | 1:48 pm
    Juventus will not allow Parma's poor league form affect their focus ahead of Wednesday's Coppa Italia clash, says Massimiliano Allegri. Massimiliano Allegri will not underestimate Parma ahead of Juventus' Coppa Italia quarter-final on Wednesday. Parma are enduring a torrid season in the league, with a record of only three wins from 20 matches leaving them bottom of the table, but the cup has provided a modicum of relief. Roberto Donadoni's men knocked out Cagliari in the last round, but their task is much tougher in the last eight, with Serie A leaders Juventus travelling to Stadio Ennio…
  • Atl. Maddrid vs Barcelona: Copa del Rey Preview

    27 Jan 2015 | 1:43 pm
    Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann is plotting to end Barcelona's six-game winning run by knocking them out of the Copa del Rey on Wednesday. Barca head to Vicente Calderon with a slender lead after Lionel Messi scored the only goal of the game in the quarter-final first leg at Camp Nou last week. Luis Enrique's free-scoring side are brimming with confidence after following up that victory by hammering Elche 6-0 away from home on Saturday to remain just a point adrift of La Liga leaders Real Madrid. The Catalan giants have won their last six games in all competitions, including a 3-1…
  • Valencia vs FC Sevilla: La Liga Preview

    25 Jan 2015 | 6:05 am
    Valencia striker Alvaro Negredo says it is time for his club to step up their bid for a Champions League spot as they embark on the second half of the season in La Liga. Sevilla, a point ahead of their rivals in fourth place, are Valencia's next opponents on Sunday and Negredo, a former Sevilla player who is on loan from Manchester City, says three points will be essential if they are to remain in contention for a top-four finish. Negredo: Of course there is a big desire to win.'' The team are psyched up and know that it is a very important game. We need to win. Sevilla are a great team on…
  • Blanc takes positives from past

    25 Jan 2015 | 5:50 am
    A good record against Saint-Etienne has Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc in a good mood. Paris Saint-Germain coach Laurent Blanc is looking at the past for motivation ahead of his team's trip to Saint-Etienne. Sitting third in Ligue 1, PSG are a point clear of Sunday's opponents despite just one win in their past four league outings. But while Blanc expects a tricky clash, he is fully aware his team have won four straight matches against Saint-Etienne and are unbeaten in the past six meetings between the pair. "My players are in a great shape. We are on a run of two victories," he told…

  • Your Call-To-Action Gets Things Done

    Mike Davenport
    25 Jan 2015 | 7:44 pm
    [This is part four in the series on effective persuasion for sport coaches] Here’s a fact — every time an athlete leaves a meeting, a practice, or a huddle without knowing exactly what to do, you’ve missed a chance at success. And you know what, you may never get that opportunity for success again. Coaches persuade. We convince people to take positive action. Persuasion is our bread & butter and the best coaches are masters of it. Unfortunately, persuasion does not come easy for many. That’s the bad news. The good news — with practice you can become very effective…

    [This is part three in the series on effective persuasion for sport coaches] Melissa was a great swimmer. Extraordinary someone would say. In the straightaways she was though to beat. But she had a fault — her flip turns. They weren’t as good as they could be. Coach knew that and had developed a plan to improve Melissa’s turns. He told her the plan, explaining if she could improve her turn she might make the cut for the national championships. Melissa listened to her coach, she wanted to win, and wanted to make the cut. But she wasn’t convinced she needed to make the…

    [This is part two in the series on effective persuasion for sport coaches]   I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once I have persuaded him, he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone. – Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States You’re reading this, which means the title did exactly what I hoped it would do — it sparked your interest.

  • Use The Muscle Of Attention To Ignite Your Coaching

    Mike Davenport
    4 Jan 2015 | 6:57 pm
    Attention is becoming the scarcest — and so most strategically vital — resource in the value chain. Attention scarcity is fundamentally reshaping the economics of most industries it touches.                                                 – Umar Haque, The Attention Economy Persuasion is one of the most important tools a coach can have in the coaching toolbox. Here’s the thing, for persuasion to be effective, you MUST have the attention of the other person. Without their attention, there will be NO persuasion. Without persuasion, poor coaching. So what…

    If you are like me, you are sick of this issue and the saturation coverage it has gotten from the media already. Let me reduce it to a few bullets and then let it go.somewhere between the time the Patriots delivered game balls to the referees (at which point they were checked and cleared for play) and the end of the first half, 11 of 12 became underinflated. Halftime score, Patriots 17, Colts 7.Second half starts, all balls OK, Brady starts half 9-for-9, final score Patriots  45, Colts 7.Bill Belichick and Tom Brady both say, "I don't know nuthin'".The NFL talks a lot, says…

    Now that the New England Patriots are headed to the Superbowl again, I thought you might enjoy reviewing some of the comments made by pressbox whiz kids (here and here, among several similar articles) last September after the Patriots' lop-sided loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. IMHO the comments were a mixture of honest curiosity about the Patriots' poor performance and slow start (for them, acceptable for nearly anyone else) to the 2014 season and thinly veiled glee that Tom Terrific QB and his smug coach were descending into the ranks of mere mortals.To that end, the youtube…

    Now that the college football season is behind us, college basketball takes center stage. Although he retired from coaching in 2008, Bob Knight remains third on the all-time list of winning coaches (behind only Mike Krzyzewski and Jim Boeheim), included in which are three national championships. I count Coach Knight among my personal heroes, not only for his accomplishments as a coach, but also because he constantly reminded the media, in no uncertain terms, they knew a lot less about basketball than they think they did. Knight could have just shrugged off silly questions, as Bill Belichick…

    Somewhere, Woody Hayes is smiling. Ohio State's legendary coach from yesteryear was fond of saying only three things can happen when you throw the football, and two of them are bad. Last night Urban Meyer and his Buckeyes played a game Woody would have been proud of. They completely dominated Oregon on both offense and defense where the game is nearly always won - at the line of scrimmage. They finished the game with nearly 300 yards rushing, and passed the ball only 23 times.The post-game commentary (here and here, among several similar reviews) from all the scholars in the pressbox is…

    I toyed with several possible titles to this post, including introducing an early candidate for my Parallel Universe award for 2015. It isn't clear to me why the media is obsessed with Jameis Winston (although my explanation is offered below), but the comments he evokes would be laughable if they weren't so sinister.Today's howler comes from Mike Bianchi, writing in the Orlando Sentinel, who admonishes FSU fans to "admit it, you're glad to be rid of Jameis Winston". This sentiment, he says, resounds (privately, of course. If they had any cojones they would say it in public, but that is…
