Greg Amsinger, hosting a live look-in to Wednesday's Giants-Rockies game for MLB Network, eerily predicted Buster Posey's walk-off home run. It started with an innocuous feeling in his "bad knee." But the real wizardry begins right before Amsinger hands off the broadcast to the Giants' local team, as he not only calls Posey's home run, but nails the play-by-play almost word-for-word. Oh, and please stick around for the end of the video for the replay of Amsinger absolutely geeking the fuck out at his correct…

    Running back Anthony Brown has quit Southern California's football team, and coach Steve Sarkisian was stunned Thursday by Brown's apparent accusations of racism against him on social media. A photo of the words ''Couldn't play for a racist man!!!!'' was posted on what USC said was Brown's Instagram account, which was later deleted. ''Sark treated me like a slave in his Office,'' was posted in the caption to the photo, along with the hashtag ''Fighton.''

Sports officials are not always held in the highest esteem. In the World Cup Game between Brazil and Colombia, many people opined that the officials on the field let the game get way out of control. I did not see that game because I was on my road-trip, but I did see a few “highlights” that indicated…

    One of the catalysts of the Denver Broncos’ passing offense has suffered a concussion. Normally, that would not make national headlines, but that person is Wes Welker. He is a high-profile name, but what makes that situation more tedious is that he suffered his third concussion in a ten month span. This is an awfully dangerous game to play. He has told Coach Fox that he has no plans to retire, but maybe he should strongly consider it.  The more concussions one obtains, the easier it is to suffer through a concussion.…

Footballguys View: The Falcons probably want to get him a few snaps to warm up for the season. We've got Jackson as a RB3 right now, though he has upside. We're concerned with his offense line in the wake of the injury to Sam Baker, as they lack a legitimate right tackle and of course, age is a concern with Jackson. He's got some fuel left in the tank, but not enough to risk a really high pick on.

While we know that Bill Belichick likes two-tight end sets, he isn't married to them and Wright has Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman at least in front of him. While he's a big, athletic player, we think his upside is a bit…

    To Dan Snyder: I want to reach out to you about a topic I wish to address directly: your team’s stadium, FedEx Field. Here is what I believe and why I believe it. Many of your team’s fans were born in the era of FedEx Field. They still remember their first game there. Maybe they were just six and remember coming through the tunnel into the stands at FedEx Field with their father, and immediately being struck by the enormity of the stadium and the passion of the fans all around them. They remember how quiet it got when the team had the ball, and then how deafening it was when…

    Ryan Nanni

    ARTIFICIAL PUNTING SCARCITY This was a casual joke I made last night in the fourth quarter of Georgia State-Abilene Christian: College football teams should be granted 30 punts per year and ration them accordingly. — Ryan Nanni (@celebrityhottub) August 28, 2014 But the longer I've considered it, the more appealing this concept becomes. Coaches embrace punting because it's one of the few known entities in football; out of nearly 8000 punts in FBS play last year, only 77 were blocked. Even if going for it on fourth and short may have a pretty good success rate, it definitely isn't 99.9…

It measures 255 miles from spot to spot on a map and takes eight years to cross in a vehicle traveling at any speed.

And I was right, just not about it being delayed to 2015. Which, according to its own delay announcement, it really should be. Ubisoft has a long apology/justification for moving it November 11th, longer than it really should be for a two week delay since this isn’t exactly an AIDS cure we’re talking about. But buried in it is probably the most revealing sentence: That’s why the team will continue…

    28 Aug 2014 | 2:18 pm
    The Cleveland Browns offense has been under the microscope during the preseason due to quarterback competition between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel, as well as the impending suspension of wide receiver Josh Gordon. Now that Hoyer has been named the team's starter, and Gordon is officially suspended for the season, it's time to shift our focus to a player who's been flying under the radar: Miles Austin. Austin emerged as a fantasy football stud in 2009 with the Dallas Cowboys. During that season, he accumulated 81 receptions for 1,320 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's battled injury—and…

  • Did Seattle Mariners Make Right Move Extending Jack Zduriencik?

    28 Aug 2014 | 2:07 pm
    The Seattle Mariners announced a multiyear extension for general manager Jack Zduriencik on Wednesday, according to Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle and other media reports. Zduriencik’s first year at the helm in 2009 led to a 85-77 campaign, but Seattle lost at least 87 games for each of the next four years before fielding a contending squad in 2014. After another dismal campaign in 2013, Zduriencik was firmly on the hot seat, but the Mariners gave him another shot with a one-year, do-or-die extension. He responded with a solid offseason and strong trade deadline, leading the…

    "I've never seen it this big""Dad, even you aren't good enough to surf these waves""Whoa, I can't believe it's so big.""I'm just glad we found parking."These were someone of the conversations taking place on the sand while The Wedge in Newport Beach put on a show for locals and tourists alike. Waves were in the 20-30ft. range and provided challenging situations for surfers and bodyboarders alike.

  • The Swell of The Decade?

    Chase
    26 Aug 2014 | 8:22 am
    As a major south swell is schedule to arrive later tonight and peak tomorrow, surfers up and down the California coast are preparing for some major surf. Many forecasters are reporting that this will be one of the biggest swells to hit our coastline in more than a decade. Is this hype? Only time will tell.  While all of this is very exciting, it is also important to remember that the ocean is very powerful and surf conditions can change quite rapidly. Rip currents will look more like rivers and side shore currents will surely pose a challenge to swimmers, bodyboarders and surfers alike.

    For me personally, the 2014 Billabong Pro Tahiti is one of my favorite stops on the WCT each year. Especially when a solid swell presents itself; something which pushes many professional surfers outside of their comfort zones. This year was no different as the waves were stellar and the top surfers really put on a show.Of course, this included some heavy wipeouts, serious injuries and crucial rescues during the peak of the swell as those in the water were dedicated to charging hard. While Teahupoo can be a punishing wave for those who ride it, it surely creates an exciting event for…

    While the Wedge in Newport Beach may have looked more like a playful and fun beach break this morning which was spitting out perfect barrels for those who ventured into the lineup, one must also remember how dangerous of a spot it really is. With heavy closeouts breaking in waist deep water, wonky backwash and unpredictable sneaker sets, the wedge is a fun, scary and hard to predict beast. The lineup was extremely crowded with local standouts like Dylan Cotton and top professionals including Jamie O'Brien; both of which were absolutely charging! All photos by Chase Miller

  • Maybe Your Kids Inherited Your Couch Potato Genes

    26 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    On the road to sports success, young athletes need two ingredients, innate skills and the willingness and determination to get better.  We all know boys and girls who showed early promise that got them noticed but then didn’t have the drive to practice every day to develop that talent.  Often labeled lazy or unmotivated, the assumption was that they chose their own path by not working hard.  However, new research shows evidence that genetics may play a role not only in the natural abilities of a developing superstar but also in their practice persistence and…

    Going into the start of football season, there is plenty of expert commentary on what makes up the “right stuff” when evaluating quarterbacks. Everything from arm strength to height to foot skills to the size of their hands was measured and dissected to find the magic combination of variables. While the body mechanics of delivering a football on target are vital, QBs rely even more on their vision both before and after the ball is snapped.It’s not just knowing where and when to look at an opposing defense but also understanding what to look for across the line. Defensive players are…
  • How To Train The Runner's Brain - An Interview With Jason Fitzgerald

    5 Jun 2014 | 10:49 am
    As productive human athletes, we just assume that we can knock down any walls put in front of us and conquer new feats of greatness if "we just put our mind to it."  Our conscious brain sets goals, gives pep talks and convinces us that with the right training plan, we can finish a race of any distance. But, when we're stretching our training run farther than ever before, the little voice in our head pops up to try to talk some sense into us; "that's enough for today" or "there's a lot of pain happening right now, time to quit."  As I discussed in last week's post about the…

    What makes an endurance athlete quit? Not quit the sport, but quit during a competition.  Every runner, swimmer, or cyclist starts a race with the desire to win or at least achieve a personal best time.  They’ve done the pre-race math - keep at a certain pace for the entire distance to achieve the target time.  Their wearable technology keeps them updated on heart rate, distance and split times to stay on that pace.  However, at the finish line, many athletes are not able to maintain their strides/strokes per minute, giving in to the perception that their energy tank is…

  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    Eitan Hefetz
    22 Aug 2014 | 9:59 am
    With sponsorship spending on endurance sports events exceeding the $108 million per year, its no wonder big business is sponsoring these events. The mid-to-high socio-economic class of endurance events participants attracts many brands to sponsor endurance events. Interestingly enough many of these big business brands are not the typical sporting brands one would expect to find. Would a laundry detergent brand make a good running race sponsor? How about a deodorant brand or a cellular carrier? Putting your brand’s logo in front of your target audience is one thing, while tying your…

  • Financial Planning and Pro Athletes: Players In Investment Trouble

    Steve Richards
    31 Jul 2014 | 9:15 am
    On the topic of financial planning, American economist Paul Samuelson once said, “Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.” Of course, some athletes have no problems going to Vegas, and they take a lot more than $800 with them. For example, golfer John Daly once claimed that he lost between $50 million and $60 million on bad bets. If the rest of us had $50 million to lose, we’d probably invest in the stock market. In fact, a lot of athletes invest their millions in securities or in business ventures.

For others, I suspect that that familiar phrase has a different meaning.  As I sat trying to figure out what to write about this week, I realized the dog days for me begin with the realization that summer is almost over. For many baseball fans, the dog days begin when they realize that their team is done for this year. Whatever your definition, we are without a doubt, currently enveloped by the dog days of…

I'm just dealing with it. It's a business here in the WNBA." -- Shoni Schimmel, WNBA & Atlanta Dream rookie.  The WNBA Atlanta Dream's Shoni Schimmel was voted the MVP of the 2014 WNBA All-Star Game after a 29-point explosion.

    The NCAA Basketball Tournament is over and the UConn Huskies have taken both the men's and women's trophies home. The NBA Playoffs have come down to their Final Four in the Conference Championships. Perhaps, once again, it is time to ask the question:   How do basketball players and teams get measured and evaluated?  How should they be measured?  What does it take to win?   Points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocked shots, fouls.  Double-doubles, Triple-doubles.  That is the traditional currency in basketball.A further analysis might take a look at the…

    27 Aug 2014 | 8:27 am
    The second year guard had a quantum leap in her 2014 performance after an inconsistent 2013 season. The WNBA has announced that Tulsa Shock guard Skylar Diggins has won the 2014 WNBA Most Improved Player Award. Diggins was second in the league in scoring average (20.1), and also was in the Top-5 for assists (5.0) per game. Nate gave a long take back in early August which puts just how good her improvement was in perspective.

Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card.

Grossman will reunite with former ‘Skins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. It seems like these two guys are joined at the hip. Grossman will become the Browns third string signal caller and become a mentor of sorts for QB’s Johnny Football and Brian Hoyer as they try to learn the Shanahan offensive system. I don’t think Grossman has much left as a player, but I think this is a good signing for the Browns. The biggest…

  • Sox Can’t Complete Sweep Against Jays

    shelley
    28 Aug 2014 | 6:33 am
    The Red Sox had a chance to complete a 3 game sweep against the Blue Jays and even had a lead for most of the game, but the Jays once again proved to be the Achilles heel for Junichi Tazawa as he gave up the lead.  Joe Kelly started for the Red Sox and still hasn’t been able to get himself a win in a Sox uniform. The Jays jumped out to an early lead when Jose Bautista hit a solo homerun off of Kelly.  Sox 0-1.  Other than that one run, Kelly was pretty effective against the Jays down the stretch.  The game stayed 0-1 until the 6th inning when the Sox bats finally cracked the…

  • Sox Take Another Game Against The Jays

    27 Aug 2014 | 6:22 am
    The Red Sox actually won a game and hoped to be able to have two wins in a row.  The Sox had rookie Rubby De La Rosa on the mound vs. former Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey.  The Sox went out to an early lead, allowed the game to be tied in totally Red Sox fashion, went into extra innings and then had a monster of an 11th inning to put the game to bed.  Mike Napoli hit a 3 run homerun in the 11th that I am not sure if it has come down to earth yet the following morning. The Sox bats got all over R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball with scoring 3 runs in the 1st inning.  Pedroia hit a 2 run…

  • Wait? What? The Red Sox Won A Game?

    shelley
    26 Aug 2014 | 7:12 am
    The Red Sox had been riding a streak that they desperately wanted to get off, an 8 game losing streak.  The Sox had held leads in many of the games, but weren’t able to hold on to the lead into the final stretch.  Last night the Sox had the only remaining starter from the World Series team on the mound in Clay Buchholz.  Buchholz has done nothing but struggle this year and everyone was hoping he could right the ship in his start last night.  Clay did exactly that.  He pitched 8 shutout innings and was on the mound in the 9th looking for the complete game.  Clay wasn’t able…

    The Browns and Bears are getting ready to face off in their final game of the preseason and, from the looks of things, people are very excited. This photo comes from the pre-game tailgate in Cleveland, where the cops are apparently very willing to help lend a hand. It’s funny because there’s a 99% chance he arrests that guy later.

  • Oakland Raiders 2014 Betting Odds

    28 Aug 2014 | 2:10 pm
    The Oakland Raiders have been mired in general malaise and awfulness for the better part of the last decade. After going 4-12 over the past couple of years, the Raiders had plenty of salary cap to improve the team this offseason but didn’t make many game-changing moves which would indicate that Oakland is getting ready to turn a corner. On offense, the Raiders brought in Matt Schaub in the hopes that the veteran will look more like the Schaub from 2012 than the Schaub that imploded in 2013. So far, he’s looked less than mediocre in the preseason. The Raiders also took David Carr…

    The days leading up to the football season-opener are supposed to be reserved for team-bonding activities, alumni excitement, school pride, etc. Unfortunately for the University of Southern California, the opening of the 2014 season has been from celebratory. Following the odd revelation of a falsified story from Trojans CB Josh Shaw, one that drew a suspension from first-year head coach Steve Sarkisian, the program has found itself under the national spotlight again, and for all the wrong reasons. Running back Anthony Brown abruptly quit the team on Thursday and proceeded to provide the…

Saban played high school football for Monongah, leading the Black Diamonds to an undefeated 1968 championship season as a quarterback & defensive back in his senior year. Saban was a pivotal part of Monongah’s dominant season, but not all the highlights were pleasant ones for the boss.

    Kansas State Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder has managed to turn the Wildcats into a national power and they are expected to be Big 12 title contenders once again. Most of their critical players will be returning (including quarterback Jake Walters) so expect the Wildcats to be a force in the coming season. On offense the team should fare well. Quarterback Jake Walters will have wide receiver Tyler Lockett and his offensive line is very well-regarded. The running attack will have to go through a transitory phase as John Hubert is no longer there but the rest of the offense is fairly set and…

    The 2014 US Open is shaping up to be a very interesting tournament.  For me the main storyline is Roger Federer and his chance for another Grand Slam title.  Roger was so close at Wimbledon, losing an amazing 5 setter to world number 1 Novak Djokovic.  Going into that 5th set many fans though this was Roger’s chance at another Grand Slam, but it wasn’t to be.  I for one though still think he has a shot in a few more and his form right now leads me to believe he has a chance at the upcoming US Open.

  • Tigers win 3-team blockbuster

    Erik Voldness
    1 Aug 2014 | 8:49 am
    Yesterday was one of the more surprising trade deadlines in recent memory. There were several big trades that saw several roster shakeups, including Jon Lester heading from Boston to Oakland for Yoenis Cespedes. With Oakland acquiring arguably the two best pitchers available over the last month (Jeff Samarzdija being the other), one of their main competitors knew they needed to get involved in the arms race. And get involved the Tigers did.After weeks of David Price trade speculation, with a different "favorite" emerging seemingly daily, the Tigers came basically out of nowhere to land the Cy…

Fan Duel is a great fantasy sports website with both free and paid games available for multiple sports, making it the perfect site for your fantasy basketball needs. The Washington Wizards have to reflect on the 2013-2014 season as a positive for the franchise.

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

  • Preview and Prediction: BYU vs UCONN

    Justin Burr
    27 Aug 2014 | 4:51 pm
    We are just days away from another season of BYU football. For me, the time has actually gone pretty fast as I am still in awe that we will be viewing our first college football games this week and most importantly, BYU vs UCONN (Friday, 5pm MT). History: BYU football has never faced UCONN but that does not mean that there is no history. After a dismal 2013 campaign, UCONN hired new head coach Bob Diaco. Who is Bob Diaco? Diaco was the defensive coordinator for Notre Dame from 2009-2013. In 2012 he won the award for the nation’s top assistant coach after leading ND to the 2nd best defense…
  • Utah Utes Football: Could the Utes Lose to Idaho State?

    Could the Utah Utes Football team really lose to Idaho State? Ok, I’ll admit it… the title of this column is a shameless hook. We all know that Idaho State is a warm-up game against a FCS team that the Utes scheduled much like every other Power 5 school does the first week, so it’s an obvious win. But given that it’s a win, what will the Utes need to accomplish in order to feel that this first game is a success? In my opinion, if Utah does not accomplish all of the following, they can consider this game a loss: Tempo – Under Dave Christiansen, the Utes are looking to improve…

In less than a week we will finally be up on the hill or in our living rooms hearing pads pop from the likes of Nate Orchard and Brian Blechen and seeing big plays from Dres Anderson and Kenneth Scott.

Rumors began to circulate late last night, with news becoming official this morning –  Kyle Korver, Damian Lillard, Chandler Parsons, and Gordon Hayward were cut from the US Basketball men’s national team. That’s right, sharpshooter Kyle Korver, who many regard as the best looking player to ever suit up for the Utah Jazz, didn’t make the team.  Weber State alum Damian Lillard, despite being a former Rookie of the Year and All-Star, didn’t make the team.

  • Da'Rick Rogers remains buried on depth chart, struggling for fantasy relevance

    Jon Benne
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:48 pm
    Da'Rick Rogers hasn't made much headway in his second year and could be on the Colts' roster bubble. We break down the fantasy implications. Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers hasn't made much of an impact in preseason, which could lead to a reduced role for him. Right now Rogers is sixth on the depth chart, behind Griff Whalen, meaning he could be the odd man out if the Colts decide to keep five receivers on the final roster. An undrafted free agent in 2013, Rogers was claimed by the Colts halfway through his rookie year. He ended up playing in five games, pulling down 14…
  • Batting Derek Jeter second is all Joe Girardi can do

    Steven Goldman
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:41 pm
    It's not that the Yankees manager lacks choices, it's that he lacks alternatives. On Thursday, Ken Davidoff of the New York Post published a column in which he quizzed Yankees manager Joe Girardi on why Derek Jeter and his .267/.315/.319 averages are batting second. Girardi's answer was simultaneously a lie and a cop-out: "It's not like we have a bunch of guys hitting .300. So that's why we've kept it." First, .300 has nothing to do with it. Girardi knows that -- Nick Swisher, career average of .256, spent the equivalent of a full season batting second for him during his four Yankees years,…
  • Jurgen Klinsmann is doing the right thing by making the USMNT younger

    Ryan Rosenblatt
    28 Aug 2014 | 2:39 pm
    It's easy to forget that Jurgen Klinsmann didn't have an entire World Cup cycle to work with last time around. Hired in 2011, the USA head coach had three years to prepare for Brazil. That's plenty of time, of course, but it means that we didnt have any precedent for how he might treat the 12 months of wind-down following a World Cup.  So as he set the course for the Americans next time, exactly what he was going to do was a bit of an unknown. But if his first post-World Cup roster is any indication, his approach will be a lot like Bob Bradley's four years ago, and entirely in character.

Jonny Venters recent trip to Dr. James Andrews revealed the worst possible news for the left-handed reliever; a third tear of the ulnar collateral ligament of BravesRadioNet and 680 The Fan. Venters has missed the 2014 season rehabbing from a 2013 UCL reconstruction, which was the second of his career, with the first coming in 2005. He had been travelling with the Braves in recent weeks and was slated to throw of a mound this month, but had been unable to do so due to lingering soreness, prompting the visit to Dr. Andrews.

Growing up near the wrestling hot-bed of Azerbaijan, Shalorus had both the intense Iranian and Russian wrestling cultures pushing in on him as a young man. The wrestling passion of the region became his, and he used it to lift himself up, professionally. He would go on to represent Britain’s wrestling team at the 2004 summer games, and later become a top MMA fighter. Kamal’s parents had no problem accepting his career as a wrestler, but fighting in a cage with less rules seemed more foreign to them, at first.

    LONDON, August 28- Former Arsenal goalkeeper Manuel Almunia has announced his retirement after a heart condition was detected at a routine medical. The Spaniard, 37, was set to join Serie A side Cagliari on a free transfer after two seasons at Watford. Tests revealed Almunia, who played 175 times for Arsenal, has a potentially fatal genetic heart disorder. “I can confirm that Manuel Almunia failed a medical due to a heart condition,” said a Cagliari spokesman. Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart tissue that causes it to thicken and can lead to sudden…

Real and Liverpool will be confident of progressing from Group B where debutants Ludogorets of Bulgaria, who were only formed in 2001 and whose stadium holds just 8,000 fans, and Swiss outfit Basel, who knocked out Manchester United at this stage three years ago, await.

The Bankers who bid farewell to their talismanic forward and former K’Ogalo favourite, Paul Mungai Kiongera, were worth their point and left the field happier of the two after moving out of the drop zone tied on 19 points but boasting of superior goal difference to Nairobi City Stars a place below in 15th. The league leaders inched to a two point lead over closest Sofapaka on 40 but with a game in hand over their title…

    The 2014 version of the Florida Gators are coming into opening weekend healthy which is a sigh of relief for their fans. We have talked about the 2013 Gators plenty over the past couple of months. Whether its discussing head coach Will Muschamp’s job status or rival fans making fun of their worst season since 1979. Now with the 2014 season a few days away, I wonder can the Gators be this year’s version of the 2013 Auburn Tigers? First, let’s discuss what the Tigers did last year.

    With the college football season kicking off tomorrow (technically it will kickoff today), I wanted you to know what is the hottest ticket for the 2014 season. There are many marquee games on the schedule this year but a rivalry in the SEC tops them all. According to Forbes, Alabama at LSU is the most expensive ticket for the 2014 season. Despite a decrease in average secondary price since last month, Alabama vs LSU football tickets are the most expensive of the season. The game currently has average price of $568.83 on the secondary market, which is down 1.6% from July’s average of…

Brandon Meriweather was suspended two games for his hit on Baltimore Ravens WR Torrey Smith. Commissioner Roger Goodell has been under scrutiny since the suspension but Clark thinks the blame should go to someone else.

As we all know, Rocket made some disturbing comments in a Sports Illustrated article back in 1999 which still follows him to this day. They say controversy sells and a popular show hopes that remains true for Rocker. According to Entertainment Weekly, Rocker has agreed to join the new season of Survivor. Controversial former baseball relief pitcher John Rocker will be playing along with his girlfriend, spray-tan business owner Julie McGee. Rocker pitched for the Atlanta…

    Growing up playing baseball in the back yard with my brother provided some of my most memorable experiences from childhood. I remember the time we were playing slow pitch wiffle ball and I got mad (I was probably losing), so I decided to break the rules and wing a fastball in there. Without flinching, my brother smacked that wiffle ball out of our yard, across the street and into the tree tops of our neighbors. In the history of baseball there has probably never been a pitcher who celebrated an opposing player’s home run like I did that day. But when my brother hit that home run, the…

Wild, who married a Russian Olympian, is nothing short of a total athletic traitor. I'm sure Wild would maintain he has the right to do whatever he wants within the rules of international competition. I maintain that I have the right to voice whatever opinion I have of his reprehensible decision.

Both sports involve a lot of ice, something that last time I checked, doesn't naturally exist in a large part of the United States at anytime during the year. But what's really interesting is that the national sport of our wonderful neighbors to the north is neither of the sports at which they excelled in Sochi.

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

    Brad DeHaven
    10 Aug 2014 | 1:55 am
    Playing the position of receiver requires skills such as good hand-eye coordination, great balance, explosive lower body strength, good agility, and great athleticism just to name a few. One of the most important fundamentals that will help take any receiver to another level is the ability to get off the line of scrimmage against a man defender. Here’s a link to 22 minute teaching video for receivers to get off of press coverage.  At the youth or high school level you don’t often encounter man coverage, however, learning how to get off the line of scrimmage versus a man defender is a…

  • O-Line: The double team

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

    28 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Last week, I discussed some sleeper teams that could be profitable for college football bettors because they were coming off of terrible ATS seasons and that there’s a precedent for teams that were terrible one year to be significantly better the next. It’s not always the case, but every year there are a handful of teams that do go over 65 percent against the spread after a bad season. Similarly, there are teams that come off of great ATS seasons that fall flat the following season. Whether they lost a lot of talent, lost a head coach, or the oddsmakers simply adjusted to that team,…

    The National Football League enters week four of the preseason and if you are betting on football this week beware! This is the week that games are meaningless and for the most part third string players will get the majority of the playing time. This could cause a serious dilemma for football bettors who will have their money on the line in a game that teams don’t care about. Some teams will play some of their starters if they feel they need more work before the regular season kicks off. This could be the case for the San Francisco 49ers.

Second in line of my favorites I would say is definitely Brooks. I have had a few pairs of the Ghost and the Glycerin through the years.  A few months ago I bought both a pair of Saucony Triumphs and a pair of Brooks Glycerin.

Let’s face it, many of us have a long list of things we want…and those of us with kids often have to put those things at the end of the list. So when it does come time to buy running clothes you want to spend your money on things you can get the most use out of. Without a doubt what I have the most of are good, longer length, dri-fit type running tanks. First let me address the longer description. Luckily almost all…

  • Washington Redskins: Final 53 Man Roster

    Lake Lewis Jr
    27 Aug 2014 | 10:20 am
    It’s that time of year again where fans, friends and family ask who is going to be on the final 53 man roster of their favorite NFL teams. After compiling several lists over the past few days, this is what I have concluded will be the final roster of 2014 Washington Redskins when first game of the regular season against the Houston Texans arrives. Let me preface this by saying that there are several position competitions that are too close to call. This is a testament to the depth that head coach Jay Gruden has obtained on the team. As always, let me know whether you agree or…

      Ashburn, VA - Over the last several years, I have made it a point to not write about Robert Griffin, III. Not because he has not been the biggest story coming out of Washington besides the nonsense that happens on Capitol Hill. Not because I do not like him. The Washington Redskins quarterback has captivated this town in both good and in bad ways. His presence on the team has been a marketing boom and a public relations nightmare all in the same breath. The team has not had this type of press for a player since the days of the late, great safety Sean Taylor who…

    Roger Goodell has focused his attention on Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather again, suspending the eight-year veteran without pay for the first two games of this season. The NFL commissioner has taken this action because of a perceived helmet-to-helmet hit on Baltimore Ravens’ wide out Torrey Smith in the second quarter of a 23-17 preseason loss to the Ravens this past Saturday night. Meriweather has three days to appeal the decision according to the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement and he is not allowed out at Redskin Park nor to have contact with anyone from the team from…

There have been fans’ phone calls to local sports talk radio about how out-of-sync the offense looked. On film it’s apparent that the offensive line could have been more effective. But,…

In fact, in one of his press conferences this past spring, Gruden was asked about his approach to being a head coach. Even then, he was talking about a focus on technique. “We have got to stay on [the players],” he said, “and make sure they’re disciplined and not jumping off-sides and running to the ball on defense and offensively finishing blocks and finishing runs and running the routes at the right depth.

The coach assured that his team is ready because he believes he is coaching a good team.

Unfortunately, he has suffered a string of injuries as of late which will cause him to sit out the 2014 season.

He already had a surgery on the same area a few months ago and now he will have to go under the knife yet again.

    The Ohio State football team has a tradition that every freshman must undergo: wear a black stripe on the helmet until you prove yourself in practice. Coach Urban Meyer started this as a rite of passage. Those that perform well during training can have their stripes removed and finally become part of the team. This year, the first freshmen to get their stripes off were Raekwon McMillan and Curtis Samuel -- a linebacker and a running back, respectively. Coach Meyer has been very vocal about these recruits who have impressed him with their performance since they got on the campus field.

OSU announced last Tuesday that they were reinstating the dismissed defensive end. He now must serve a 1-game suspension. The former high school football giant received his dismissal in July from head coach Urban Myer. This was the result of Tracy Sprinkle being arrested in connection with a bar fight in Northeast Ohio, which also led to charges that included cocaine possession. The football star pleaded 'no contest' in the face of an amended misdemeanor…

How an athlete develops the power, how efficiently they develop the power, how much power is developed and how the power is controlled and decelerated all play factors on performance as well as prevention of injuries.

  • Italy Rewind: Derrick Walton

    Dylan Burkhardt
    28 Aug 2014 | 10:45 am
    Derrick Walton was Michigan’s fourth option offensively last season, but expectations are high for the 6-foot point guard from Detroit. Walton was a complementary star last season and while he made huge plays on the road at Michigan State, Nebraska and Ohio State he was always just out of the limelight. With Nik Stauskas, Glenn Robinson III, Mitch McGary and Jordan Morgan gone, all eyes will be on Walton to make a sophomore leap. He was efficient when he picked his spots last year and this blog has even hypothesized that he could make a Yogi Ferrell-like jump during his sophomore year.

    Short and sweet. Here are 11 phrases successful athletes never say one game day (and probably not on any other day either)… Successful athletes don’t look for something to blame. They look and their performance, think about how they can do better next time, and work on it.  They don’t stay focused on the “coulda, woulda, shouldas.” No matter what, they want to do their best and help their team in any way they can, no matter what that may entail, no matter who is “supposed” to do it or not. Successful athletes LOVE a challenge and WANT the ball. They…

This topic came up again when I saw this headline in my Facebook Newsfeed… Georgia coach Mark Richt dropped a recruit because of his tweetsUnder that it said, “Twitter is a recruiting nightmare.” I disagree. Twitter is just a tool, just a platform through which people can communicate. HOW YOU CHOOSE TO USE IT however, can cause problems for you if you make bad choices. The bottom line is, YOUR choices affect opportunities you receive and ones you get taken away from you. Don’t blame the tool. This very same tool can HELP you…

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

She played for a high school that JUST started their softball program. She wasn’t spectacular pitching wise. She did enough to keep her team in the game and stop any “big shots” from hurting her team. In short, she did a decent job as a pitcher. She was pitching outs. The only problem? Her team made error after error after error around her. Still, her demeanor, how she carried herself, how she…

  • 2014 Fantasy Football: QB Preview

    David Solar
    28 Aug 2014 | 9:02 am
    The NFL is back and that brings the welcome return of fantasy football. Over the past two seasons we’ve begun using oddsmakers projections to shed a new light on fantasy rankings, and the results have been categorically successful. Last season we recommended taking Drew Brees ahead of the higher ranked Aaron Rodgers, and Brees outscored the Packers young gunslinger by 180 points in a standard Yahoo public league. We also projected a bounce back season for Lions QB Matthew Stafford, who finished last year as the 12th overall ranked fantasy player. This season we decided to break down our…

Entering the season, Yahoo! has seven running backs listed among the top ten overall players including the first six overall (Jamaal Charles, LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson, Eddie Lacy, Marshawn Lynch and Matt Forte, respectively). Traditionally, managers will attempt to draft at least two running backs in the first three rounds and with incredible depth at…

Sports rankings with oddsmakers’ projections. Today, we examine the wide receiver and tight end position to determine which sleepers managers should circle on their draft board and which future busts should be avoided at all costs. In last season’s Fantasy Football preview, we highlighted Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas as a potential sleeper, and the Georgia Tech product responded by tallying 92 receptions for…

It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained.

Since its emergence in the early 1900s, it has developed into an elaborate art through which people are able to express themselves. From a simple game where one performs various tricks with a football using different parts of the body, it has become a widespread sport and is currently being practiced by thousands of trained professionals the world over. For one to become a skilled football freestyler, one needs to undergo…
  • The SpiderBelt: Your Running buddy for small Pocket items

    Sporting E
    7 May 2014 | 3:40 pm
    Ever went running only to have your run ruined by the constant jingling in your pockets? Or perhaps you have one of those belt bags that bounce and flop with each running step you take? Maybe you can’t find enough space in those wrist pockets to fit in all the small essentials you want to carry with you during your run? It’s a constant dilemma faced by a lot of runners – finding the pocket bag of just the right size and stability. It’s hard to look for something where they can stow away all the essential stuff they want to carry with them during their run without having to worry about…

    By Jordan SchoonThe summer of 2014 will be looked back on similarly to 2010 in the way that the competitive landscape of the NBA drastically shifted.  While there were certainly interesting moves and repercussions out west, the top tier teams (OKC, Spurs, Clips, etc.) largely remained in similar positions.  The West will be another bloodbath next season, but the teams competing for playoff spots should remain static.  The big changes happened in the lowly Eastern Conference, which now looks much more open and slightly more competitive for the upcoming season.  Miami and…

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

    By Jordan SchoonDespite losing its stranglehold on the crystal ball after a seven year period of dominance, the SEC was still college football's premier conference in 2013.  That may sound like a homerific statement to say on the surface, but it holds up even outside of my personal bias.  The conference placed seven teams in final AP Top 25 poll including three of the top five.  The next closest conference was the Pac-12 at six teams, but the closest to the top was Oregon at number nine.  For those who put weight into bowl results the conference finished with the best…

    By Jess Samuels Every NFL offseason, there are at least a few changes that allow players to have new opportunities.

    28 Aug 2014 | 2:02 pm
    The New Orleans Saints will look to finish the preseason with a perfect record as they face the Baltimore Ravens. Both teams will sit their starting quarterbacks. The New Orleans Saints will face the Baltimore Ravens in their final preseason game, and they are expected to sit Drew Brees and start Luke McCown at quarterback. Ryan Griffin took a big step back in the battle for the No. 2 job when he was held to 46 yards and an interception on 8-for-13 passing against the Indianapolis Colts. However, McCown didn’t look much better as he threw for 45 yards on 3-for-10 passing. The wide…

    The Dallas Cowboys will look to win a preseason game as they face the Denver Broncos in their final 2014 preseason game. The Dallas Cowboys remain winless in preseason play with an 0-3 record, and they will face the Denver Broncos in their final preseason matchup. The Cowboys are expected to sit Tony Romo, who seems to have recovered from his back surgery. This will give Brandon Weeden an opportunity to prove himself even more as the Cowboys’ No. 2 option. Running back Ryan Williams has looked promising in the preseason, especially last week when he led the team in rushing with 47 yards…

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers earned their first preseason win against the Buffalo Bills last week, and their defense showed a lot of promise. It will be tested as they face the Washington Redskins. The Buccaneers will have a new addition in guard Logan Mankins, who was acquired in a trade from the New England Patriots for tight end Tim Wright. This is sure to boost the offense, and running back Doug Martin has looked solid in the preseason and…

The New York Giants are undefeated in preseason play with a 4-0 record, and they will look to finish 5-0 in their preseason finale against the New England Patriots. Quarterback Eli Manning will play along with the other Giants starters, which is unconventional to do in the preseason finale.

      The champ has already been crowned. The Lions’ team is already set. Legitimate college football is being played. I get it. You don’t have a valid reason to watch the Lions play the Bills other than to scream at your TV like the overemotional chick in one of those terrible girl movies whenever there is a cutaway to Jim Schwartz. But there is some intrigue. The first, of course, is the winner of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending). George Johnson will play. Probably a lot.

In the months since then they’ve sacked and celebrated and ran and Jedded their way into our consciousness. Now, in three days, it’s possible one of these players will never be anonymous again (in this small corner of the internet).

The Blue Jays beat the Royals, 12-2, and Stroman was elated. “It was pretty special,” Stroman…

    Most of Fountain Square Brewery‘s bottles have a consistent label design with a periodic table symbol, the beer style clearly shown with the same font, and some pleasing artwork. All of them look really nice and it makes for consistent branding, but my favorite of their labels is Soul Ride’s, which diverges from this norm. I guess there isn’t really an appropriate element for a periodic table symbol for Soul Ride, so that was left out. The artwork takes up more space and is more interesting on this label, and the beer style is smaller and integrated with the art. The label…

    Before this happened!!   I was able to take some pre-game pictures from the field. And, I was able to do so because of the generosity of my dude Andy, who was nice enough to invite me to the game, where I enjoyed field pass privileges, 50 yard line seats, and all that comes with the Touchdown Club.  Carlton and Jeffery were also along for the ride, and provided entertainment (dudes are funny) and transportation.  I can't thank all those dudes enough. Here are some of the photos I was able to snap off.  Apologies to the Redskin fans out there.  The quarterbacks didn't…

I know I am in the minority with this, but LeBron James was justifyable leaving the game with cramps.

That incarnation of Kimber went under, and the new company of that name has none of the problems that doomed its ancestor. It started with a series of fine automatic pistols based on the Model 1911 Colt and has now gotten back into the rimfire rifle business. The latest Kimber .22s are a completely new design. Today, the Kimber name is associated with a different bunch of folks who call Yonkers, NY, their home,…

    Last year, the Denver Broncos had one of the greatest passing offenses in NFL history. Peyton Manning set an NFL single-season record for touchdown passes and passing yards, and the Broncos became the first team to score 600 points in a season. Likewise, the 2013 Seattle Seahawks pass defense was one of the best of all time. (The Broncos can attest to that.)The only thing more incredible than their performances last year would be if the Broncos and Seahawks were to do it again. Excellence can only last so long, and by their very nature, historically dominant performances are difficult to…

However, after all that is said I still like Real to win this game big, and that’s pretty obvious right? Well do yourself a favor and bet on Los Blancos to…

    Now that Kevin Love is officially headed to Cleveland, it’s time for everyone to weigh in on how this trade will affect the Cavaliers’ chances this upcoming season. That was expected from analysts and maybe players from other teams, but I didn’t expect to hear the thoughts of Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor on the matter. But that’s exactly what we got when he sat down with ESPN’s Derek Wetmore. “I question Kevin if this is going to be the best deal for him because I think he’s going to be the third player on a team.

    Saying anyone is going to be the next Calvin Johnson, Demaryius Thomas, Brandon Marshall, Dez Bryant, etc. is obviously a tough thing to predict. Johnson is a once-in-a-generation type player with incredible size, speed, and talent not many people in the world possess. Thomas, Marshall, and Bryant are all extremely gifted and talented receivers that are just a notch below Calvin, but are still among the elite receivers in the NFL. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Kelvin Benjamin, the Carolina Panthers’ 1st round pick (28th overall), will join that group of All-Pro…

    The 2014 offseason marked the first season in which the NFL’s fifth-year option was available for eligible players. Though the league’s 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement brought a drastic decrease in rookie salaries, it altered the rookie contract to a four-year commitment, allowing players to enter negotiations with teams sooner than they had been able to in previous years.  With that predetermined four-year deal came a new fifth-year option, which allows teams to delay negotiations with first-round picks by placing a one-year extension (with a significant pay increase in that year)…

    As a 19-year-old born and raised in Buffalo, it is hard to say I have experienced any Buffalo Bills team to necessarily brag about. Though I was alive for our last playoff run I am quite sure I was more worried about escaping my older brother’s Razor Ramon wrestling imitations than the future employment outlook of special teams coach Bruce DeHaven.   However, my lack of successful football fandom has not in any way stopped my father from reciting his many stories of his very own Buffalo Bills.

    Bills 16     Steelers 19 I knew after the decent game we had prior that it was time to see our starters score a touchdown in this one. The game starts with Pittsburgh kicking off and I am shocked when the kick returner is C.J. Spiller. Isn’t he our starting running back? What the heck is Doug Marrone thinking? If this resulted in an injury to Spiller you know Marrone would be on the hot seat. This is one of those calls like the 10 per game we questioned in every game Dick Jauron coached! Spiller received the kick and runs through some pretty heavy traffic all the way to our…

    Bills 20       Panthers 18 Well Doug Marrone showed us he really wanted to win with playing his starters (who needed the work) until the eleven minute mark of the second quarter. The offense looked sharp immediately going down the field with precision. Motivated by running backs waiting to shine, C.J. Spiller ran the first play 14 yards. He then had a second carry for a few. Then we saw EJ finally get the ball to Sammy Watkins and this beauty went for 14 yards and another first down. C.J. then runs for 3 and Sammy catches his second catch for 5 yards. EJ looks like he is in…

Did I say win? Marv Levy did not give a hoot about the preseason and played our stars sparingly to say the least. He knew what we had and just wanted to see and evaluate our rookies.

Back to back games out west against the Canucks and Golden Seals where we lost 7-2 and 6-1 respectively. Finishing up the west coast tour with two more losses, being out-scored 8-3, we limped back East into Montreal who had shut us out earlier in the season at home 3-0. Which was part of…

At present, as it stands, apparently the series has gone down to a 4-match series. The second ODI will be played tomorrow at Cardiff.

Balls drop in or plays are made that you just can’t explain. Trailing 4-3 in the 9th inning of Game 4, they embarked upon an unprecedented comeback from a three-game deficit to defeat the New York Yankees in the series. After the ALCS, the Red Sox swept the Cardinals to win their first World Series since 1918. Explain that? Baseball Gods? So as I set at the “K”…

    For eight-and-a-half innings, fans mumbled about how the “same old Royals” were back. The attendance of just over 13,000 wasn’t good enough for some. The offense was sputtering, plating just two runs in their last 28 innings. The team looked lifeless, hacking away at balls and making mental mistakes like getting picked off. Then, with one swing, Alex Gordon provided the Royals’ biggest play in the last 20 years. Gordon hammered a hanging slider from Glen Perkins just over the right-center wall for his second-career walk-off homer, propelling the Royals to a 2-1 victory over the…

    Kansas City desperately needed someone to step up, and guide their team through a pennant chase. Who better to do so than James Shields? In seven starts prior to the match against the Yankees, Shields is 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA. Three years ago with the Tampa Bay Rays, Shields did the same thing. In July of 2011, Juego posted a 5.40 ERA, and posted a record of 1-4. Things would turn around for Shields in 2011, just like this year. After posting an ERA of nearly six in July of 2011, James came back in August and September and posted a 2.45 ERA with seven wins and three losses. Though we have not…

    Twenty-four and six! Amazing. It’s been an amazing run. I can’t remember too many streaks like it. Although the 1977 Royals had a few that had to be that good or even better. It begs a big question: are the projections that suggested the Royals were just an average team wrong? The simplest way of evaluating that is to ask: what are the odds that a coin flipped thirty times will return 24 or more heads. Answer: 1 in 1400, approximately. There are 133 sets of 30 games in a 162 game season. So an average team should be able to pop such a streak once every ten or eleven seasons. I…

    Berea, OH – Josh Gordon has had quite a tumultuous offseason. Facing a potential season-long suspension for yet another violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, Gordon’s performance in practice has been rather lackluster. And after an abysmal showing against Washington in Cleveland’s second preseason game, Browns coach Mike Pettine publicly criticized Gordon’s effort. It most certainly makes sense that Gordon’s focus on the football field is blurred by his impeding suspension. But it is just as likely that instead of trying to stay in rhythm with Brian Hoyer, Gordon is…

    About four months ago Josh Gordon appealed an NFL proposed one-year suspension for his violation of the policy, that suspension has been upheld. This means that the Browns standout receiver will be banished from the league and his team for an entire calendar year. Gordon won’t be eligible for reinstatement until this day next year, only a few days before the start of the 2015 regular season. Here is the statement Gordon released via NFLPA “I’d like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans. I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing…

    The powers that be within WWE have forged an impression that given the overwhelming box office success of Marvel’s ‘Guardians of The Galaxy’, the likelihood of Dave Bautista returning as a full-time superstar is slim. To date the ‘Guardians of The Galaxy’ has grossed $490m worldwide since its release on August 1, whilst debuting at number one on the United States box office. Bautista last appeared on WWE programming on the June 2 edition of Monday Night RAW, where the 45-year-old “quit” after being denied his opportunity to contest for the WWE World…

    Consider all the reasons critics say Qatar shouldn’t have been awarded World Cup 2022 by FIFA’s executive committee 3 1/2 years ago. There’s the heat: The average high temperature in mid-July, when the final is currently scheduled, is 106 degrees, and FIFA’s own technical report branded Qatar’s climate “a potential health risk” for players. There are the allegations of corruption: The Sunday Times of London reported last month that a Qatari official had paid millions of dollars to FIFA voters and influencers in exchange for World Cup votes. (The Qataris deny this.) And then…

And it was fairly safe to say that no-one in the crowd was expecting Gretzky, Federov or Lemieux to be turning out either. In fact a Kane, Quick or Boychuck would have sufficed; instead we got to experience the talents of Zenon Konopka, Emerson Etem, Tyler Bunz and Andrew Gordon (a late replacement for the world renown Kyle Quincey).

    So the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) has finally pushed the panic button and decided to replace ‘under fire‘ head coach, K. Dharmaraj with Project 2016 coach, A. Arulselvaraj, albeit the appointment is just an interim measure. The face-saving move with Dharmaraj as a “scapegoat” to me is an act of cowardice, designed to appease the fans after a disastrous World Cup campaign and shameful performances at the recent Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It would have been better for the MHC to stick by their man for at least another year after they decided to give…

Graham had appealed the Tight End tag the New Orleans Saints placed on him because he felt he was not a tight end and was used as a wide receiver. The difference in the two franchise tag amounts is substantial, maybe not for Jimmy Graham, but for most of us, as a tight end the tag would pay Graham $7.035 million, and as a tagged wide-receiver $12.312 million dollars.
