    After, what took place in the final preseason game for the Oakland Raiders it became clear the Raiders must start Derek Carr. Matt Schaub suffered through a terrible preseason only adding to the pressure that eventually led to the Oakland Raiders announcing they will start the rookie quarterback in Week 1. When you compare Carr and Schaub’s preseason numbers, it is not even close. Schaub did not pass for a single touchdown and only 218 passing yards on 24-47 passes.…

    I am on record here saying that the 2-game suspension given to Ray Rice after his “domestic violence event” was meager. I said the NFL was tone-deaf sending one of its VPs on ESPN Radio to declare that the NFL had taken a tough stance with regard to domestic violence. I said that Ravens’ fans were out of line cheering for Rice when he first stepped onto a practice field. I mention all of that because I want to be clear where I stand with regard to that issue. The only reason I need to mention this again is in the wake of the season-long suspension for Cleveland Browns WR, Josh Gordon.

So it was surprising when Gronkowski told reporters Monday he was ''super excited'' to be returning this week - before Belichick said anything of the sort.

Though, in hindsight, it was precarious that Gordon got caught from behind, Wisconsin punched it in five plays later to take a 24-7 lead that felt insurmountable. Outnumbered 3-to-1 in the crowd, and thought to be able to win the game by nobody (other than Stone Cold Steve Austin), the Badgers were stomping LSU in every facet of the game. We were going to prance around Houston like kings. “Barring an LSU defense or special teams touchdown, we’re for…

    The Miami Hurricanes announced today that they have relieved head football coach Al Golden of his duties. The program’s new head coach will be a recording turned all the way up of former Hurricanes linebacker Ray Lewis yelling about stuff. “I appreciate Al Golden’s years here at Miami, but I think the yelling Ray Lewis tape is what we need right now as a program,” said University president Donna Shalala, announcing the move. “With that, I would like to announce our new head coach.” A recording of Lewis giving some sort of motivational speech then came on…

    Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders He beat out Matt Schaub for the starting job. Matt Schaub! A smart NFL team would have already cut Carr for being barely better than Matt Schaub.  Even more embarrassing, Carr is regarded as the worst of the quarterbacking Carrs. His older brother, David Carr, entered the NFL as a much more highly regarded prospect, was horrible and wore white gloves. “Oh, but David Carr could have been good if he hadn’t been on the expansion Texans!” No. But, sure: let’s pretend this theory isn’t insane. Derek Carr is on the Raiders, the eternal…

Jeff Driskel appeared comfortable at the line, leading the offense to their best performance in years. Efficient, error-free, and perfect are strong words, but they are reasons for hope for fans longing for something like offensive competence for the Gators in 2014.

Now you can add “Kendall” to that list because 18-year-old Kendall Jenner is dropping her last name. You see, Kendall is a Very Important Model now, and therefore no longer professionally associates with the family of parasites that essentially put her in the public eye to begin with and are therefore responsible for her having a modeling career at all. The 18-year-old reality star will go by “Kendall” for all of her…

Again, this was more or less to be expected, there are lots of teams that have a strong need at defensive end, and after Sam was cut, a team was bound to pick him up given the skill he showed during the preseason. If it wasn’t the Cowboys, it’d be the Packers, or some other team. Either way, it’s great that Sam’s story gets to continue, at least for the time being. For now, however,…

    British Horseracing Authority refuses to lift rule on distances Arc say decision over all-weather track is unwelcome delayThe Flat turf course at Newcastle received a stay of execution when the British Horseracing Authority refused to grant an exemption to its rules which would allow Arena Racing Company (Arc) to run floodlit winter fixtures at the track. The end of Flat racing on turf at the track may not be postponed indefinitely, however, as Arc responded to the news by describing it as an unwelcome delay and restating its determination to ensure Newcastles all-weather track will host…

Waves were in the 20-30ft. range and provided challenging situations for surfers and bodyboarders alike.

  • The Swell of The Decade?

    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.

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…

    Sports Are 80 Percent Mental

  • 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…
  • See The Game Through The Eyes Of The Quarterback

    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…

    The Anaheim Ducks are coming off one of the best seasons in team history with regards to regular season wins. They finished second in the league behind only Boston, who edged them out by one point. They ended up winning their first round matchup vs Dallas (4-2), but were eventually defeated in round two by the Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings.  The key to the Ducks success is the incredible consistency throughout the lineup. At first glance, people just see the massive point totals coming from the Ducks’ Superstars – Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. What most people do not notice…

The ones that do, are the ones that become Champions. The rest become good at losing and making excuses.  Which category are you in now?  Champions have mastered the mental game by learning to control their fears and dominating their emotions.  I have been studying the mental aspect…
  • Which Big Business Makes A Good Race Sponsor?

    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.

    Ohio State released its weekly depth chart Tuesday afternoon. Here's what you need to know.  The offensive line is as follows (left to right): Taylor Decker, Pat Elflein, Jacoby Boren, Billy Price and Darryl Baldwin. There are no more "ORs" like there were last week. Also, note Elflein and Price flipped at right and left guard. Head coach Urban Meyer called the offensive line the Buckeyes' "number one concern" Monday. Vonn Bell is starting over Cam Burrows at safety. Tyvis Powell remains is the other starter.  Michael Bennett solidified his starting spot over Tommy Schutt. Last week,…

    Patrick Maks

    For a moment, the world stops when Devin Smith stretches his arms out to catch a football. “Whenever I run and I look back for the ball, it seems like everything's silent,” he said. “It's just me and the ball and I'm focused on the ball: just catching and scoring." The senior wide receiver’s 80-yard haul helped catapult Ohio State to a scrappy 34-17 win against Navy Saturday in Baltimore. And with redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett in need of as many effective supporting cast members as he can get, Smith’s strike bailed the Buckeyes’ previously anemic offense out.  “I knew we got…

    Despite a win over a Navy team that will end up in a bowl, Ohio State fell from No. 5 to No. 8 in the latest AP poll. The slip, obviously, has a lot to do with Braxton Miller's season-ending injury. Florida State, Alabama, Oregon and Oklahoma hold the down the poll's top spots. Michigan State, the AP's No. 7 team, is the Big Ten's highest ranked team. Wisconsin checks-in at No. 18, and Nebraska comes in at No. 19.

    Syracuse vs UConn – 1:00 PM These two former Big East rivals will not be taking Labor Day off, as they’ll jockey for NCAA Tournament at-large bid positioning on Monday. Syracuse picked up a creditable draw to open up the season against Missouri last weekend before being downed easily by Penn State a few days later. Everyone expected the Orange to pummel Albany on Friday, and Phil Wheddon’s side obliged in a 5-1 battering. Considering the rest of the Orange’s non-conference schedule outside of a potentially tricky trip to Colgate is largely laughable, this may be one of…

  • Sox Lose Final Game, Split Series With Rays

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:23 am
    The Red Sox took to the mound on Sunday in hopes of grabbing the final game and therefore the series against the Rays.  The Sox had rookie Rubby De La Rosa on the mound vs. Drew Smyly who the Rays had gotten via trade for David Price.  De La Rosa had one rough inning, the Sox were able to tie it up in the late innings, head into extras and then lose by way of the walk off in the 10th.  The Sox split the series in a game that was very winnable.  And yes, it was a one run game. The Sox cracked the scoreboard first when Mookie Betts hit an RBI double in the 3rd inning to score Christian…

  • Buchholz Pitches Complete Game Shutout Against Rays

    31 Aug 2014 | 4:35 pm
    In Clay Buchholz’s last start he had a complete game shutout going and then it all fell apart in the 9th inning.  Today Buchholz would be in the same situation after 8 strong shutout innings, but then in the 9th he would be able to accomplish what he wasn’t able to 5 days ago.  Clay Buchholz is definitely finishing off the season strong and hopefully giving us all hope that he’ll be a core to a strong rotation in 2015. The game stayed tied 0-0 until the 3rd inning when the Sox cracked the scoreboard.  Alex Cobb gave up a single to Bogaerts and then got to 3rd base by way…

    Lucky Blogger
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    The New Orleans Saints are coming off of an 11-5 season which included a Wild Card playoff berth and one should expect that the team will be well-positioned to compete once again in the talented NFC for a playoff position. For the Saints, everything starts and ends with the offense. Does the team still have Sean Payton? Does the team still have Drew Brees? Does the team still have Jimmy Graham? A yes to all three of those questions makes everything else almost immaterial. Sure, the team is still flanked by a committee of uninspiring running backs (is anyone excited to see Pierre Thomas carry…

    Some athletes simply don’t share when they’re going to retire before they have to. Some athletes (think Derek Jeter) announce their retirements in advance. As for Tom Brady, he’s not giving a specific retirement date but he gave people his general thought-process on when he’ll retire during his weekly appearance on WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan morning show: When I suck, I’ll retire. But I don’t plan on sucking for a long time. So hopefully that leads me to being here and there’s no place I’d rather be. I love this game and I love working hard at it.

    Sure, Under Armour may have lost out on signing Kevin Durant after Nike decided to match UA’s offer sheet to KD but the sports brand did sign Gisele to model its women’s line of clothing in the meantime. Gisele is the first model that Under Armour will work with. Up until this point, UA had mostly signed female athletes to be representatives of their brand but the women’s athletic apparel market is growing at such an impressive rate that branching out in that department makes sense: Athletic apparel manufacturers and retailers are reaping the benefits.

    In Spain, the first division league was dominated by the two of the biggest club in Europe throughout the last decade. Barcelona and Real Madrid dominated the La Liga in Spain until last season, when the underdogs Atletico Madrid clinched the title in dramatic fashion. It was highly unlikely result given the fire power that was possessed by the likes of Barcelona and Real. Many believed that Atletico was the team of the year last season. Their resilience and team work outshined their major rivals and beat them to the domestic crown. As heartbreaking as it was for Real and Barca, the triumph…

    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.

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:28 am
    After finding out that the St. Louis Rams released Michael Sam, there remained at least a glimmer of hope that he would either be claimed off of waivers and sign with a new NFL team or remain with the Rams as a member of the organization’s practice squad.

  • Utah Utes Football: Utah vs Idaho State Post Game Analysis and Grades

    Patrick Thomsen
    1 Sep 2014 | 5:04 pm
    I know this post is a few days late but I just recently got back from being out of the country and had my first chance to watch this game last night. Offense: B I give the offense a B because in all reality they really didn’t show much versus ISU. The 2nd and 3rd strings played a majority of the game and the packages and plays that were called were pretty vanilla. It’s obvious the Utes made the right call in selecting Travis Wilson as the starting QB over Kendall Thompson. Wilson clearly outplayed Thompson and also looked a lot more comfortable out on the field. I still would like…
  • BYU Football: Ugly Win Could Yield Big Results

    Andrew Kartchner
    30 Aug 2014 | 9:44 am
    Make no bones about it, BYU’s road win Friday night against UConn was ugly. But the train wreck that was 15 penalties for 150 yards could turn into a positive for the Cougars going forward. Here’s why. Beating up on an inferior opponent–and make no mistake, UConn was a vastly inferior team–can mask a team’s weaknesses. That’s why Bronco Mendenhall said after the game that getting the win in sloppy fashion may actually be a good thing; it gives the team clear areas to work on without going home with loss. And BYU has plenty of room for improvement,…

    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?

    Jason Hodges
    27 Aug 2014 | 8:18 am
    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…

  • Wake Forest appears to have a crotchchop playcall

    Rodger Sherman
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:32 pm
    Suck it, Wake Forest opponents. Suck it. If you're a coach on the sideline, you have to make sure that your signals for your on-field players are distinctive, so they can pick them out easily and quickly remember what the signals mean. Wake Forest has got that figured out: That was from Thursday night's season-opening loss to Louisiana-Monroe, but we didn't see it until someone set it to Degeneration X's theme music: If we're being perfectly honest, it's less of a crotch-chop and more of a crotch-rub while making a V, but still. It's crotchy.

The two clubs were granted an extension following the 11pm deadline last night in order to complete the necessary paperwork, and now according to the BBC, the Premier League have accepted the move.

But, according to the Metro, PSG president NasserAl-Khelaifi has claimed that Di Maria wanted to move to Paris, and would have done so if Real Madrids asking price wasnt too high.

But with Wayne Rooney having recently been given the captains armband, where does it leave Robin van Persie? Reports in the Mirror suggest that part of the reason for signing Falcao is that Louis van Gaal is concerned about whether Van Persie will recover from the knee injury he has sustained that could require surgery. But the most the Dutchman is likely to face on the sidelines is a few months, meaning he will surely be fighting with the…

    2 Sep 2014 | 2:42 pm
    One of the questions that will come up with Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees for the next few years will be when they plan to retire. They've answered in different ways. Brees said he wants to play until he's 45. Manning has admitted he knows he's in the final stage of his career but doesn't have a set plan on when he'll walk away. But Brady gave the best answer of all, on his weekly radio appearance with WEEI's "Dennis & Callahan" show: "When I suck, I’ll retire," Brady said, via the Boston Globe. "But I don’t plan on sucking for a long time." That sums it up perfectly. Usually…

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:22 am
    LONDON, September 2- Former Manchester United assistant Mike Phelan believes that the club have lost their way following the departure of Danny Welbeck and the arrival of a host of big-money signings. Welbeck secured a £16 million move to Arsenal on transfer deadline day, ending 13-year association with the club which he joined as an 11-year-old. The England international’s exit means that Darren Fletcher and Jonny Evans are the only remaining regulars in the United squad that are products of the club’s famed academy, while youngsters Reece James and Tyler Blackett have also…

    2 Sep 2014 | 6:12 am
    LONDON, September 2-Argentina international Angel Di Maria has revealed that he delayed his move to Manchester United following the intervention of Cristiano Ronaldo. The 28-year-old winger, who recently sealed a British transfer fee record switch to the Premier League outfit, has admitted he was close to joining the Red Devils ahead of the 2013/14 campaign. He ultimately stayed and fought for his place at the Bernabeu following the purchase of Gareth Bale from Tottenham for a world record transfer fee. And, it appears that Ronaldo played a crucial role in the talented winger sticking it out…
  • Dad stopped Bolt from being cricketer

    2 Sep 2014 | 5:51 am
    BANGALORE, September 2- Sprint superstar Usain Bolt said Tuesday he wanted to play cricket for Jamaica as a youngster but his father convinced him to take up track and field instead. Bolt, the world’s fastest man, could have followed in the footsteps of Jamaican speedsters Michael Holding and Courtney Walsh, who struck fear into the hearts of batsmen while playing for the West Indies in the 1980s and 90s. Asked on a promotional visit to India why he did not pursue his love of cricket, the six-time Olympic gold medallist replied: “Blame it on my dad.” “My father is a…

    NAIROBI, Kenya, September 2 – The 62nd KCB Safari Rally will be used to lay out a strong case of consideration as a candidate for inclusion in the 2017 World Rally Championships calender next year. Speaking on Tuesday during the launch of the September 12 to 14 showdown that will largely be run in private farms in the outskirts of Nanyuki next weekend with Nairobi and Kiambu enjoying part of the action, world motorsports governing body (FIA) vice-president, Surrinder Thatthi, said organisers have the challenge of meeting WRC standards after failing the test last year. “When we have a…

    ABIDJAN, September 2- The Ivory Coast government on Tuesday relented and agreed to let the national football team play an Africa Cup of Nations match against Sierra Leone that it had banned because of Ebola virus fears. Ivory Coast had been warned they could be excluded from the Nations Cup finals if they refused to play Sierra Leone, one of the countries worst hit by the incurable disease which has killed more than 1,500 people this year.

  • The San Diego Padres pay homage to Bud Selig by creating a plaza in his name

    29 Aug 2014 | 2:58 pm
    As we all know, MLB commissioner Bud Selig will step down after this season. Even though his farewell tour hasn’t been as epic as Derek Jeter’s, some teams have shown their appreciation for Selig. None more so than the San Diego Padres. The Padres have created a plaza in honor of Selig that will be open year-round for fans to visit. On yet another sun-kissed day in paradise, the Padres honored Selig with a dedication ceremony of the Selig Hall of Fame Plaza at Petco Park, which sits behind the Western Metal Supply Building, next to 13 palm trees, waving gently in the breeze…

    If you haven’t heard, Manny Pacquiao will be a player/coach for his basketball team in the Philippines. With Pacquiao only being 5’6, he knows he can’t do it by himself. So just like any other coach, Pacquiao knows he needs a few good players on his team. According to Abac Cordero of the Philippine Star, Pacquiao wants Metta World Peace to play on his basketball team. Pacquiao is so excited that he already has an import in mind, and at first he wouldn’t name the player. “Basta,” he said. Pressed, the eight-division boxing champion relented. “Si Ron Artest,” said…

    J Will
    28 Aug 2014 | 8:05 am
    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban really has a problem with the Houston Rockets. Last year during free agency, Cuban was pissed at Rockets general manager Daryl Morey when he asked him about trading Dirk Nowitzki. Now that Chandler Parsons has signed with the Mavericks, the rivalry between the two teams is starting to heat up. Cuban was on 105.3 The Fan and was asked about the Rockets asking if Dirk was available to be traded. “I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ He asked if we’d trade Dirk. At first I thought it was taunting, but now knowing more about Daryl I don’t think it was in…

    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…

    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…

Back to school is here! It’s the time to get readjusted to having schedules and various activities that were on hiatus over summer break. For the youth athlete it can also mean getting ready for tryouts or preseason workouts. While this happens every year, each year still brings something new and exciting, and your kids can use your help adjusting to it all. Whether your kids can drive to and…

    It's a Friday before a holiday weekend, which also happens to be the first one of the college football season.

So I have to come back from a 1 - 3 start, but it's a long season and hope springs eternal.College Football Kicks Off: As I watched Texas A&M dismantle South Carolina last night, I couldn't help but wonder whether the Aggies are that good or if the Gamecocks are a bit overrated.

I mean let’s face it, the guy can flat out recruit and coach football players. His teams win, and win in exciting fashion. They must really like him at Louisville, considering they hired him for the second time after taking the Cardinals to four bowl games and leading them to two top ten national rankings in four seasons from 2003 – 2006.But now this is where it gets interesting.

    RUSSIA, REALLY?: Today, American Vic Wild won his second snowboarding gold medal of the Olympic Games while competing for Russia. 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. I don't know much about his background or history, but I'm pretty sure he benefited greatly from the freedom and opportunity our great country has to offer. This smells…

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. Most Americans would probably be surprised to hear that lacrosse is Canada's national sport. Of course, most Americans would probably be surprised to hear anything about lacrosse,…

  • 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,…

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…

  • Penn State: James Franklin – The Start of a New Era

    2 Sep 2014 | 7:32 am
    The magnitude of the Penn State Nittany Lions’ season-opening win over the University of Central Florida on Saturday (26-24) was tremendous for James Franklin. This former Pennsylvania-kid-returned-home-a-young-man has proven his ability to recruit, coach and win in the Southeastern Conference (SEC), arguably the best college football conference over the past decade. When Franklin accepted his former head coaching position at Vanderbilt University, he inherited a team that had won a total of four games over the previous two seasons. But in three years at the helm of the Vanderbilt…
  • USC Trojans 2014 Football Season Preview

    Jeff Little
    1 Sep 2014 | 10:19 am
    The toughest thing for a major college football program to accomplish is to build and maintain momentum from one year to the next. In 2013, the University of California Trojans (USC) were able to turn around an unsettled season, playing tough down the stretch and finishing with a Las Vegas Bowl win over Fresno State. USC avoids Pac 12 North foes Oregon and Washington in 2014. The Trojans’ two toughest games of the year are at Stanford University September 6 and at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) on November 22. USC is 0-4 in the last two years against rivals UCLA and…
  • Washington Redskins: The Robert Griffin Effect

      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…
  • Redskins: Another Final 53 Roster Prediction

    Diane Chesebrough
    29 Aug 2014 | 8:52 am
    The preseason games have been played and statements by players looking to get on this roster have been made. The Washington Redskins’ coaching staff must cut as many as 20 guys from the team by 4:00 p.m. tomorrow and they have some very tough decisions to make. This year, the NFL increased the number of players on the practice squad from eight to 10 which is somewhat helpful. But there is more talent on this squad than we’ve seen in a long time at this time of the year. Predicting Washington’s final 53-man roster was not easy. I’ve drafted and re-drafted this list multiple…

    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…

    English: Justin Boren blocking for Dane Sanzenbacher (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The final preparations for the opener game on Saturday between the Buckeyes and Navy come one week after coach Urban Meyer of Ohio State lost Braxton Miller, a three-year starting quarterback.

    Ohio State relies heavily on Braxton Miller on the field as he is the senior quarterback for the football team. Unfortunately, he has suffered a string of injuries as of late which will cause him to sit out the 2014 season. This latest development has been confirmed shortly after Miller hurt his right shoulder. 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.

  • Black Stripes No More: Samuel And McMillan Get The Thumbs Up In Ohio

    12 Aug 2014 | 9:03 am
    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.

    Many college students realize they weren’t realistic about college. Some expect to find it hard living away from home, not only in terms of missing family but also in dealing with practical stuff like washing your own clothes. If anticipated, these issues can be less stressful. Living away from home tends to be the toughest adjustment for first-year students. You’ve had a clear role within your family all of your life: the family comedian, the mediator, maybe the translator. These roles can help you feel like you belong somewhere.

When he attended track and field events as an adult he got interested in the Junior events (under 20) and noticed that the Junior teams did not represent the makeup of the top high school track and field athletes in the nation. Together with his friend, Mike Byrnes, they did some digging, asking questions and studying the process. What Jim and Mike learned is that many young high school athletes could not advance to higher level sanctioned events. On…

    2 Sep 2014 | 8:00 am
    Today we conclude our “Italy Rewind” series with a closer look at Spike Albrecht in our player-by-player recap and video feature from Michigan’s four-game tour of Italy. Previously: Zak Irvin, Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, Aubrey Dawkins, Ricky Doyle, Kameron Chatman, Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Mark Donnal. Spike Albrecht is a gamble that continues to pay off for John Beilein. Albrecht was originally added to Michigan’s roster because the Wolverines needed a point guard to play just a few minutes off the bench behind Trey Burke. Albrecht played that role…

Previously: Zak Irvin, Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, Aubrey Dawkins, Ricky Doyle, Kameron Chatman & Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman. Today: Mark Donnal. Mark Donnal spent last season battling against Jordan Morgan, Mitch McGary and Jon Horford in practice as he sat out during his redshirt season. The rest of his time last season was spent in the weight room – he’s now up to 240 pounds – as he prepared for his number 34 to be called this season. Now Mitch McGary,…
  • 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.

  • UNPACKIN’ it MINUTE: The TRUTH About Lying

    29 Aug 2014 | 2:47 pm
    This past week a very bizarre story in sports, involving a senior football captain at USC, was reported by the media. Initially, Josh Shaw was labeled a hero for jumping off a second-story balcony to save his young nephew from drowning in a pool. A couple days later, conflicting information came out and the account was being questioned. Eventually, Shaw admitted to making up the entire story. Sometimes lying happens too easily for us – even when the circumstances are not as outrageous as Shaw’s story. We might lie when people ask how we’re doing, or when describing how work is…

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

Above .500 in the second half of the year. Everth Cabrera only plays a half season; in 2012 it was an injury, in 2013 it was steroids.

    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…

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…

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…

  • NCAAF Betting Trends: Fading AP Top 25 Teams After a Loss

    David Solar
    2 Sep 2014 | 11:45 am
    Last season we published an article that detailed how sharp bettors could take advantage of the Associated Press (AP) Top 25 rankings. Square bettors will frequently put too much stock into these rankings despite the fact that many voters are not watching every game and are actually far less informed than the oddsmakers. With this knowledge in mind, our determination was to find other profitable betting systems that capitalized on the artificial value creating by these AP rankings. Although most teams are actually undervalued following a loss, I thought that this trend would flip-flop when…

It comes only natural for them to be considered good players out there on the court, but while this happens during high school, when their body is still young and energetic, this talent might easily wear off if not properly educated and trained. This is why many of them fail to reach that level of being good players to be co-opted for colleges' basketball teams. Read…

    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 Jordan SchoonLife as a Cubs fan has never been easy and has rarely been enjoyable.  Most years the team is miserable, but even the best Cubs experiences end in brutal disappointment.  See the 2003 NLCS where I cried in my bed for a half hour after both the Bartman game and game seven, and the 2008 NLDS against the Dodgers where I literally smashed a Rubix Cube against the wall in frustration.  I have generally been on board with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer's implosion and rebuild of the Cubs, but this summer I've spent way too much time in internal dialogue wondering whether…

    28 Jun 2014 | 7:06 am
    By Jess Samuels Every NFL offseason, there are at least a few changes that allow players to have new opportunities. From a fantasy football perspective, the most important changes happen at running back. This is where a player can turn into a star in a hurry just by having the right opportunity. Here is a look at a few players who could be poised for great 2014 seasons.Ben TateAfter spending his 1st few years in the NFL as a backup to Arian Foster, it is finally time to see what Ben Tate can do as a starting running back. Cleveland has brought him in to their system to be the featured…

    2 Sep 2014 | 1:18 pm
    The Confidential’s Fantasy Football game is structured to allow late entries.  We don’t go by total points for the whole season; rather, we just allow teams to win the week or not.  Whoever wins the most weeks, wins the overall prize.   Also, for points-centric folks, we are running a contest for most points from Week 1 to Week 4 (and will probably run similar contests throughout the season).  For Week 1 results, see here.  For rules, see here.  As a reminder, to enter, simply comment below with an ACC QB, RB, WR, Flex, Defense, and Coach.  We’ll do the rest.  GO…

    The Confidential is running a fantasy football contest each week and during the regular season.  Here are the rules.  Remember, you can enter in Week 2 and still be eligible for the overall prize–which is given to the entrant who wins the most weeks.  But, for now, let’s recap the Week 1 results: Week #1 Winner:  Lenville Cards, 128.4 pts Although Lenville did not pick a squad that would earn him the bonus 5 points, he did manage the most overall points.  Winston, Boone, Crowder, Boyd, Pitt defense, and Brian Kelly.

    Image from CBSSports Much has already been said and written about Terrel Hunt’s punch and subsequent ejection in Friday night’s game against Villanova. Legendary #44, Floyd Little, expressed his disappointment in Hunt’s decision making, which is likely punishment enough by most metrics. Head Coach Scott Shafer said that the team handled it internally and that no further punishment would be necessary. However, an interesting debate has emerged among Syracuse fans regarding whether further punishment should be dealt. Most abide by the Head Coach’s decision that Hunt…

An Orange-out might be passe in Syracuse but the Cards fans and team are excited to be back in black. The traditionalist Charlie Strong refused the teams request to let them wear the black uni’s during his tenure, opting instead to stick with their more traditional red and white uniforms. One of the first things Bobby Petrino did upon his return was to bring back the black, and why not, he introduced…

    This author has been historically positive regarding Syracuse Orange football… looking for positives in the midst of a negative period. It was the only way to cope with the Greg Robinson era and its sequellae. Not to be a Pollyanna, but to find some positive reality in the middle of a negative stretch. Unfortunately, the only way to describe the Syracuse-Villanova game, which ended with a 27-26 score in favor of Syracuse, is to describe it as Syracuse “did not lose.” Notwithstanding the scoreboard, sitting in the Carrier Dome for 4 hours did not persuade me that my team…

  • Why the meritocracy of football is failing Kellen Moore is his quest to be the No. 2 quarterback with the Lions

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Kellen Moore is better than Dan Orlovsky. That’s what the game tape tells us, and after years of listening to coaches and analysts bloviate I’ve learned the tape doesn’t lie. Football is the closest thing we have to a meritocracy. It doesn’t matter what round a player is drafted in, where he’s from, what color he is or what he looks like. If he’s better than that the guy sitting next to him in the meeting room, he’ll play ahead of him. Yet, after playing well for most the preseason and capping the month by going 17-for-28 for 172 yards and two…

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.

I guess there isn’t really an appropriate element for a periodic table symbol for Soul Ride, so that was left out.

    The Washington Redskins have claimed safety Duke Ihenacho off waivers from the Denver Broncos. With a 3-13 record last season, Washington has second waiver priority and snatched up Ihenacho relatively quickly. With Brandon Merriweather set to start the first two games on suspension, the addition of Ihenacho is a big deal for the Redskins. He is not an All Pro safety, but he is certainly a solid player and a welcome addition to Washington’s secondary that quickly became a mess when Merriweather’s suspension was handed down.

But it wasn’t enough to keep him on the active roster, as he lost out to fellow rookie Silas Redd, a hard-running undrafted free agent who led the team with 157 rushing yards on 34 carries during the preseason. The team also cut second-year RB Chris Thompson, but since he missed two preseason games and a ton of practices with…

Some may feel that the pre-season polls either hype up a team too much or do not give enough credit to the underdog.

    27 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    Photo by Kiersten Koenig By Otesa Miles The school cafeteria serves as a social hub for many students. It’s also a place where young people have the opportunity to make some independent food decisions. Whether campers take lunch in a box or grab a hot tray at school, lunch is a good time to remember all of the healthy food tips gleaned during Shaka Smart Basketball Camps. Here are a few ways to guarantee a healthy lunch: Load up on leaves. Those green, leafy veggies pack in a ton of important vitamins and minerals.

    By Otesa Miles While campers came to Shaka Smart Basketball Camps this summer learn more about basketball, we made sure we shared a few lessons on healthy eating during our 2014 sessions.

What’s that, Coach? You want me to keep practicing? An apple a day makes basketball even more fun to play! You say “cheese,” I say “banana.” It takes two. Between games, it’s time to refuel.

    Much has been made of the controversy surrounding the Spurs Game 1 victory over the Miami Heat when LeBron James left the game in the 4th quarter due to leg cramping. Athletes, analysts and fans alike were criticizing LeBron James for bailing out on his team, not b. Using Kobe as a comparison shooting free throws with a ruptured achilles and walking off under his own power. I know I am in the minority with this, but LeBron James was justifyable leaving the game with cramps.

Many of the features that make a gun easy to carry also make it difficult to shoot well, because every design choice confers an advantage to one characteristic and exacts a penalty from another.

A Manchester football team spending absurd amounts of money in a bid to play catch-up with their neighbours is nothing new, but the boot is certainly on the other foot as United find themselves investing millions in new players in an effort to match slick City’s exploits. Meanwhile, ex-Manchester City cast-off Mario Balotelli returns to the Premiership in a big to bolster a Liverpool side…

I had to relearn a couple things if you will. The first thing I reminded myself was baseball isn't a real sport. It's merely a past time, or a hobby of sorts, to get us through the dry summer months.  Because of the lack of actual athletic ability required to play baseball, you simply can't count on a team to win more often than not. This isn't a "sport" where you can break down the skill sets of the…

    Clemson +10(-115) vs GeorgiaGeorgia is heavily favored in this game. Probably because they're in the SEC. Regardless, this Clemson team just might be for real this year. The Tigers are coming off a solid season last year and are looking to keep rolling. I don't know if they'll win but I don't think anyone is about to get blown out. LSU vs Wisconsin (+150)Here's one of the better match ups of the weekend. A classic big ten team (Wisconsin) taking on a classic SEC team (LSU). Both schools have a rich football history and are very well coached. I think Wisconsin comes away with the win with…

    NCAA FOOTBALL PICKSJacksonville st at MSU (-35)This pick is for the fellow writer Sugar!! Michigan State is favored by 35 points which goes against my number one rule on never taking a spread that is ridiculously too big! However when a team from the Big Ten (is it still called that?) plays Jacksonville State, I'd say this is a pretty safe bet. Plus this State team (Michigan, not Jacksonville) is coming off a strong season last year and have title talks rumbling especially in the Traverse City area.UNLV at AZ (-24)Another huge spread that honestly could probably be a little bit higher.

    Washington Natty Ice (-1.5; EVEN) @ Philadelphia Doug Fister (12-4 2.38 ERA) is back on the mound for Washington tonight. He's been as solid as anyone in the league this year. I don't expect the Philies to do anything crazy tonight. The Nattys should definitely win this one by at least 2 runs. NY Yankees @ Detroit Tigers (-185)Porcello shut the Yanks down last night and I fully expect Price to follow suit. The Tigers need every win they can get right now. Somehow the best roster in baseball is on the cusp of missing playoffs and has guys with names like Buck Farmer holding a regular…

    Robert Gritzer
    2 Sep 2014 | 7:59 am
    There have been few headlines from the NHL over the past few weeks. However, the one that has stuck out the most, is a possible NHL expansion. The rumored expansion would mean that the NHL would have teams in Seattle, Las Vegas, Quebec, and an additional team in the Toronto area as soon as 2016. While the NHL’s Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly has kept behind closed doors throughout most of this, major sports websites have continued to weigh their opinions on the issue. While most people see little to no problem adding teams to the hard working city of Seattle, the historic Quebec city…

    When the NFL Player’s Association allowed the NFL to take full control of the punishment of players for conduct not contained in the Collective Bargaining Agreement,1 there was an implementation of an all-encompassing personal conduct policy. Specifically, the ability to levy a suspension of almost any length to players for their conduct, whether or not a conviction was entered against them.2 While criminal activity is clearly outside the scope of permissible conduct, and persons who engage in criminal activity will be subject to discipline, the standard of conduct for persons employed…

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.

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.

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…

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.

    The Kansas City Royals coasted through what was a historic August with little difficulty. In the last week, fans reacted as if the sky was falling as the team sputtered with a 2-4 (plus the suspended game) record. As the month of September began, the team viewed Monday night as an opportunity to turn the page and start fresh. The Cleveland series is history. As painful as it may have been, it was still the only series the Royals have lost since July 20. A three-game set with the Texas Rangers, owners of the worst record in baseball, could possibly prove to be the antidote to Kansas City’s…

      After a series with the lowly Twins in which the Royals struggled, but ultimately took two of the three games, their place atop the AL central seems to be in jeopardy. They currently have a tenuous hold on a one and a half game lead, but there is reason to believe that they can, in fact, hang on (if Bruce Chen isn’t pitching too often). As a native Missourian that has been transplanted, against my will, into a suburb of Detroit, I have no choice but to listen to the enemy’s sports radio programming during my daily commute.

Unfortunately, the Royals couldn’t reward their fans with a memorable performance, falling 6-1 to the hands of the Cleveland Indians. For the second straight start, Jason Vargas (10-7) was shaky, and just like the Rangers did last Sunday, the Indians punished him early on. After surrendering a run on a second-inning double, Vargas was battered in the third. Jose Ramirez singled home the game’s second run, and Carlos…

Coming off a short stint of initial major league success, kneejerk fans tired of watching “Moose vs the Mendoza Line” and Omar Infante’s tendency to fluctuate at a moment’s notice between Mr Clutch and Dr Awful have been calling for Colon to get an everyday spot in the lineup. With this week’s acquisition of career .214 / .284 / .347 Jayson Nix, the temperature around Colon seems to be bubbling over. Why would an organization that drafted a player in the top 5 not have any faith in him?

  • Broncos Ban Welker From Attempting Ice Bucket Challenge

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:42 am
    After reports came out Tuesday that Denver Broncos Receiver Wes Welker has 3 concussions in 10 months, the team made him sign a new contract that banned him from attempting the ice bucket challenge. General Manager John Elway said the team is very concerned that the repeated bouncing of ice cubes off Welker’s head may give him a concussion that will end his career. “We are very concerned for Wes and do not want him taking any unnecessary hits to the head during non-football activities. Broncos fans need not worry about his performance on the field though, as we will still send him on…

Wow, what a show that was, the San Francisco Giants destroyed Milwaukee in a Labor Day weekend 3 game set; 13-2, 3-1 (near no-hitter for Jake Peavey) and a 15-5 laugher on Sunday that saw manager Ron Roenicke use five relievers to no avail out of the beleaguered bullpen. That left the Brew-Ha’s 1-5 on their current road trip, heading into Wrigley today for three more with the suddenly surging Cubbies.

    Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena may seem like a strange venue for a collosal ice hockey grudge match. 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). When I heard the line-ups for the two teams those immortal lines from Major League were ringing through my ears – “Not bad for a couple of…

It shows the Professional Bowlers Association‘s (PBA) number one ranked bowler, Jason Belmonte team up with those crazy guys from Dude Perfect to create this compilation of incredible bowling trick shots.

    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…
