    A little more than a year ago, the San Marino international soccer team scored its first goal in international competition in more than a 5-year span. Notwithstanding that feat, San Marino failed to win the game; in fact, San Marino has never won an international soccer game. The international team has been in business since 1990 and its record stands at 0-61-1. That tie game happened about a week ago when San Marino and Estonia met in something called “European qualifying” and the game ended at “Nil-Nil”. Question: Given the performance of San Marino over the last quarter of a…

The Niners, Seahawks and Bucs confirmed that they underwent some kind of inspection; this report in the Washington Post indicates that the focus is not merely on those teams. I…

  • Fantasy: Patriots RB situation is a Gray Area

    Michael Beaudwin
    22 Nov 2014 | 3:55 pm
    “A Gray area”, Other than a delightful play on words, its the very definition for the New England Patriots’ running back situation. Or for any Patriots player not named Tom Brady when it comes to fantasy, really. During the long reign of Bill Belichick, there really haven’t been consistent fantasy “locks” on the team. Besides a select few, that is. Randy Moss, Rob Gronkowski, and Tom Brady may be the only names on the list. Recently, Jonas Gray made a big splash in New England’s backfield rotation. Which caused a lot of you to scramble to your phones, tablets, or…

    The life of a fan of a team in the National Football League can be a Jekyll and Hyde experience. In just the 17 weeks of a NFL season you can experience an array of emotions. As a true fan, or fanatic, you will often feel the same as the coaches and players. However, being a fan of the Washington Redskins means being one thing, decades of disappointment. It all started for me in the fall of ’88. I was a young boy growing up, in what was then, a small Colorado town. Growing up in a state that already had a football team, everyone thought I should plant my roots there. But I wanted a team…

    Did your weekly “pick’em” look as bad as mine did? I wasn’t surprised though. The only “constant” this year has been how unpredictable (for the most) each week is. Even though I have been hemorrhaging money from bad picks, I wouldn’t change a thing about this season. {Note: TPF does not support the incredibly fun act of gambling.}  But it’s the unpredictable nature that makes the NFL so much fun and so different from any other sport. The bottom five looks quite a bit different this week. Mostly because the teams in there deserve to have their ineptitude highlighted. The…

    In the NFL, the quarterback is often seen as the staple of a team. If a roster does not have a franchise QB the team is mediocre at best. In 2012, the Washington Redskins thought that they had finally drafted the guy to become that franchise QB. Turns out they may have been wrong. Would the real Robert Griffin III please stand up, wait, he has! Now don’t get me wrong, in 2012 I was as enamored with this kid just as the rest of the league and Redskins fans were. But since then something has changed. The real Robert Griffin III is not the same QB he was that year. Has the league caught up to…

    It’s not normal for a member of the opposing team to be excited to meet a man who’s about to lead a team against you, but that’s the case of Devon Still and Sean Payton. The story of Cincinnati Bengals’ Devon Still and his 4-year-old daughter Leah who’s battling cancer is well documented throughout the 2014 NFL season. It’s a touching story that makes us remember there’s more than just a brutal game between two teams, a victor and an eventual champion. The champion instead is Leah Still who is undergoing radiation to, hopefully, eradicate the…

Consuming 9.35 pounds of turkey in 10 minutes, the competitive eater bested Kobayashi’s previous world record of 7.5 pounds with relative ease. There are a few pretty amusing things about the video up top. Many of the other competitors looked like ordinary citizens, rather than professional food chuggers.

    With the Cavaliers continuing to struggle despite their star-studded roster, reports suggest Cleveland head coach LeBron James may soon find himself out of a job. “He may not last the week,” said a Cavaliers front office source. “It’s just not working. The idea was that he’d be a young coach with some energy and a fresh outlook, but the team is not playing well and only getting worse. There’s too much on the line to not hand the team over to someone with experience.” If James is forced out as head coach, the team would retain him in a playing…

You can make the case that the NFL is slipping in popularity … or you can simply realize that the league is as marketable as ever, but has failed miserably in selling its game to those who enjoy shows like “The Walking Dead.” What millions each week are failing to realize, though, is that the NFL is the original post-apocalyptic drama.

Penn State-Michigan was a very dumb football game. Stanford probably had three dumb football games alone. But once you establish that some games are dumber than others, you necessarily support the proposition that one game will be the dumbest of the season. And when you play four quarters without either team scoring a single point, and when one of those teams needs the win to finally get bowl eligible to continue the fifth-longest postseason…

    Via NBC Julia Sweeney, who is probably best known for playing the androgynous Pat on Saturday Night Live, sat down for the Marc Maron’s WTF podcast this week. It turned into a far more fascinating interview than I might expect from someone we haven’t heard that much from in two decades. I found out, for instance, that she used to be married to Stephen Hibbert, best known for playing the Gimp in Pulp Fiction. Via Miramax She’s a fascinating woman who had a string of bad luck in 1994 with the huge bomb, It’s Pat, getting diagnosed cancer, and having a brother also…

    YouTube There are few things in life more universally frustrating than inconsiderate drivers. People who either think the rules don’t apply to them or are just too self absorbed to realize that other people exist. But what would you do if, nearly every day, you saw the same driver brazenly and recklessly ignoring basic traffic laws, putting other motorists in danger — for over two entire years? That’s a difficult question to answer, as it would make most peoples’ blood boil. Honk and give a shake of the fist to the driver whenever they pass you? Make a log of the…

    WWE “Hey Bro, wanna go in on a used Toyota Yaris with me?” When somebody regularly entertains live audiences of thousands and appears on TV shows viewed by millions, you generally assume they’re making a pretty decent living. I mean, WWE calls all their wrestlers Superstars, so that must mean even the lower-card guys are raking it in, right? When we hear Scotty 2 Hotty has become a firefighter or Justin Credible is managing an Olive Garden we feel sorry for them, because they’re no longer living that WWE high life, but the reality is, those guys are probably pulling…

That explains why Johnny Manziel isn’t getting a chance to play quarterback for Cleveland. Oh, and there’s also the matter of his entourage reportedly beating the shit out of a fan that asked for a hug on Friday night. That might not be great for his chances to play either.

    23 Nov 2014 | 9:18 pm
    NBC Odell Beckham was dominant in the first half, accounting for 14 of the Giants 21 points. In the second half, he didn’t get enough chance to compensate for Eli Manning’s shortcomings. One overthrown Manning interception ended up having a 14-point swing. Then there was the matter of Eli missing an open Beckham for a touchdown. NBC Granted, he was pressured on the play, so it makes it a little easier for us to judge Eli for missing the read, though he was looking that way at the start of the play. After squandering an 11-point halftime advantage, New York managed to regain the…

    As the Detroit Lions were taking a knee to close a 34-9 loss to the New England Patriots, center Dominic Raiola went low for a cut-block on New England defensive tackle Zach Moore and admitted in his postgame comments that the move was retaliatory in nature.    Now, the NFL is reviewing the incident, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press:The Lions won't discipline Raiola, as head coach Jim Caldwell told reporters Monday, per Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press."He and I talked, we addressed the issue.

  • Ryan Mallett out for Year; Is Tom Savage Ready to Start for Texans?

    24 Nov 2014 | 12:11 pm
    When a team goes through quarterbacks like a window shopper at a department store, often you'll notice that the fans can get attached to the idea of a certain quarterback and ignore the warts. For the Houston Texans, previous examples have included "I can't believe this T.J. Yates isn't made out of any Schaub-like materials" and "I buy this ratty Case Keenum dress because I support local businesses." Ryan Mallett's injury is not a huge loss for the Texans, because, as I've been over, there wasn't much upside for the Texans to tap. It is, however, a big gain for those attached to the idea of…
  • Tampa Bay Times Publishes Harsh Headline, Tells Bears to Take Josh McCown Back

    24 Nov 2014 | 12:09 pm
    The Josh McCown experiment in Tampa Bay has failed. This time a year ago the then-Chicago Bears quarterback was piling on the points as he filled in for an injured Jay Cutler. Now, after leaving the team to take the starting position in Tampa Bay, McCown is floundering, and the natives are beyond restless. Leading the anti-McCown movement is the Tampa Bay Times, which dropped a simple and unmistakable headline in its sports section Monday after the Buccaneers' 21-13 loss to Chicago. The publication flatly told the Bears to take McCown back and leave Tampa Bay to fester in peaceful…
  • What Is Wrong with the Detroit Lions' Failing Offense?

    24 Nov 2014 | 11:40 am
    A three-play series in the first half of the Detroit Lions' 34-9 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 12 summed up most of the club's failures on the offensive side of the football this season.  The mostly nondescript possession began roughly halfway through in the first quarter with the Lions up 3-0.  Quarterback Matthew Stafford took a sack on first down. Running back Joique Bell rushed for a minimal gain on second down. And Stafford's third-down attempt sailed high and incomplete, intended for receiver Calvin Johnson. A chance to pad an early lead was lost. The Lions punted…

    Steve Adams
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:06 pm
    Late last week, the Padres and Braves were rumored to be emerging as the favorites for Yasmany Tomas, and on Sunday it was reported that he’s received offers from the Braves, Giants and Padres with the Mariners, Phillies and Diamondbacks still lurking on the periphery of his market. We’ll keep track of Monday’s Tomas reports in this post… Though Peter Gammons tweeted over the weekend that the Braves have made an offer, David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was told that no offer has been extended (Twitter link).

    Josh Willingham will officially retire after an 11-year Major League career, the outfielder told ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick. Willingham’s decision comes despite receiving what he termed a “substantial” offer from a contending club this offseason, Crasnick writes. Willingham explained his decision process: “I felt like it wouldn’t be fair to myself, and more importantly to the team that was paying me a lot of money to perform at a high level, if there was a chance my dedication would waver — particularly as the season got longer.

SUNDAY: Hanley Ramirez will go to Boston on Monday to finalize a deal with the Red Sox in the five-year, $90MM range, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports (Twitter links). Reports emerged this afternoon indicating that the Red Sox were in hot pursuit of Ramirez. As Rosenthal wrote earlier today, the Red Sox’ endgame with Ramirez and Pablo Sandoval is unclear. It’s possible they want Ramirez to play shortstop, but they already have…

    24 Nov 2014 | 9:00 am
    The Mariners and third baseman Kyle Seager are on the verge of completing a seven-year, $100MM extension, reports Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. The contract contains an option for an eighth season which could be worth as much as $20MM, depending on performance escalators, Passan adds. Seager’s deal is pending a physical. He is represented by Jet Sports Management’s Andrew Lowenthal. Seager’s payday is well-deserved, as the 27-year-old has emerged as one of baseball’s best third basemen over the past three seasons.

If a takeover is inevitable, they figure, it’s better to be prepared. “Beer, wine and tobacco people—I’ve met with them all,”…

CRS' economic analysis indicates that cannabis prices are likely to fall from today's prohibition-influenced prices of $200-$300 an ounce to as low $5-$18 ounce.

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:21 am
    The women's WCT is about to get very real as they enter into their final event, the 2014 Target Maui Pro, which will get underway on November 22nd. Steph Gilmore, Tyler Wright and Sally Fitzgibbons are all in the running for the world title and its a very close race with a lot of potential scenarios and outcomes. I am hoping that Sally Fitzgibbons can finish the 2014 season with a strong result and win her first title on the WCT. Whatever the outcome might be, I think the 2014 Target Maui Pro will be an exciting event that will see a record number of attendees and online viewers due to…

    After a very successful film documenting the life of Lakey Peterson, Aaron Lieber is once again making another feature film starring Bethany Hamilton. Many know of Bethany as a victim of a terrible shark attack more than 10 years ago, but don't realize that she is still one of the top professional surfer in the world. Not to mention she competed in the most recent season of The Amazing Race and got married last year as well. She is an inspiring individual both in and out of the water; someone who many look up to.Aaron Lieber's kickstarter campaign for this film has been extremely successful…

    While it's always cool to work with fellow surfers and you best bro's from way back when, I think it is possible that it is holding back each webcast's potential. Especially since many from the current commentary and broadcast team lack formal broadcast or commentating experience. Sure, it's nice to have commentators who have backgrounds in professional surfing who can articulate some of the finer details during a contest, but it needs to be matched with some seasoned veterans as well to create a nice balance. That's why I think it could be extremely beneficial to add some experienced…

    Sometimes you can't have everything that you want in life. Perhaps the price is to high or it is not readily available. The latter is often the case for Seasonal CLIF Bar Flavors which are only available for a short period of time each Fall/Winter. We're talking Pecan Pie, Spiced Pumpkin Pie and Iced Gingerbread perfection! Eating one not only provides a great snack, but also makes it truly feel like the holidays are here despite the weather that is trying to prove otherwise. One thing is for sure, you don't miss out on Seasonal CLIF Bar Flavors this year!

  • Is Major League Baseball Losing its Popularity? How Can It Be Stopped?

    Jennifer Smith
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Is America’s pastime becoming a thing of the past? Baseball is currently the nation’s second-favorite sport, trailing only football. Despite this ranking, most baseball economists are reporting that baseball game attendance and popularity is on a steady decline. Unless Major League Baseball (MLB) does something to gain the attention of modern viewers, it’s not going to fair well (popularity-wise) in the years to come. A report released May 29th, 2013, shows that MLB game attendance had declined 2.9 percent. Some teams saw more declines in attendance than others. For instance, the…
  • Top Career Crushing Sports Injuries and What We Can Do to Stop Them

    Ryan Griffiths
    18 Nov 2014 | 9:00 am
    Injuries are part of playing sports, but sometimes we wonder if sports injuries have to be so devastating. Players bank on their health for a paycheck and, at the same time, they have to entertain demanding fans. If they don’t perform, they won’t be around for long. Some think that some sports, like football, need an overhaul because of the severity of injuries when they do occur. Should national leagues be paying more attention to these injuries? And, what can be done, if anything, to minimize or eliminate them? Here are just a few examples of devastating sports injuries and what could…
  • Lacrosse Is The Fastest Growing Sport In America?

    Jennifer Smith
    13 Nov 2014 | 9:15 am
    While almost every American is aware of the popularity of the NFL, NCAA, NBA, MLB and NHL; most would be stumped if asked which is the fastest growing team sport. If someone were to hazard a guess, they would most likely be wrong, because the fastest growing sport is none of these. It’s lacrosse. Fastest Growing Sport According to an annual report by US Lacrosse,“A record total of 746,859 players competed on organized lacrosse teams in 2013. The growth rate from last year (722,205) was 3.4 percent and youth participation topped 400,000 for the first time ever.” Two Reasons for The…

    If you have a line of sports merchandise or gear that you’d like to promote and sell to athletes and fans alike, then you may just want to build an eCommerce business. It’s much cheaper to start than opening up a store because of low overheads, and it’s easier to manage because of software automation. Additionally, making money online may be as profitable or more profitable than a small store because of the Internet’s national and global reach.

  • Gender Equality in Sports – Is It Coming?

    Keith McFarland
    4 Nov 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Beyond gender, what difference exists between male and female sporting events? I’m a sports fan. I love watching a good contest. Both genders play team ball, need good coaching, and want fan support. Winning championships is the goal, regardless of sport or player. Either sex can have good and bad games. Each, as individuals or teams, must overcome adversities. Who is better is best debated among fans and pundits. For my thinking, the two are really complementary, having much in common. And when assessing today’s society, I’m surprised we’re not seeing more collaboration, especially…

    Tim Shoemaker

    Back in September, Troy Smith was inducted into Ohio State's Athletics Hall of Fame. Fast-forward two months and the 2006 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback will be honored again by the school he represented when his No. 10 will be enshrined at Ohio Stadium on Saturday during the Michigan game. It seems like the perfect opportunity to honor Smith, who went 3-0 as the starting quarterback against the Wolverines in his career.  On Monday, Smith addressed the media and talked about what it means for him to return to Ohio State and to have his jersey number put up in Ohio Stadium alongside…
  • 2016 Running Back Recruiting: Who's Next?

    Mike Rockstedt
    24 Nov 2014 | 12:15 pm
    Negative recruiting is a large part of the recruiting game, and until recently one of Urban Meyer's negatives was that none of his running backs had ever rushed for 1,000 yards in a season. The last two years have changed that quite a bit.  Meyer was fortunate to have several viable options in the backfield when he arrived, especially a workhorse like Carlos Hyde. Hyde became Meyer's first thousand-yard running back in 2013, and Ezekiel Elliott became the second to hit that mark against Indiana. Needless to say, breaking the thousand-yard stigma is a big help to recruiting running backs.

    Tim Shoemaker

    Early in the season, Ohio State senior point guard Shannon Scott has been in quite the giving mood. On Monday, the Big Ten decided to give back. Scott was named the Co-Big Ten Player of the Week on Monday afternoon after dishing out 30 assists in the Buckeyes' two wins last week over Marquette and Sacred Heart. He shares the honor with Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky. Against the Golden Eagles, Scott finished with eight points and 14 assists. Against the Pioneers, however, Scott was even better. He dished out a school-record 16 assists and scored 11 points for his second-career double-double.

  • The Superstars Who Don't Play

    22 Nov 2014 | 9:15 pm
    Football is always about the warriors, the guys who go out and fight. But even they may not be the most important part of a team. We regularly watch teams that seem to have overwhelming talent go nowhere. Sometimes they become jokes. In baseball it's been called a 'country club', among other things. Football has no such catchy phrase, but clearly we've regularly seen the same thing happen. We've also seen plenty of seemingly unglamorous teams rise to the top. A few even have stayed there. The guys off the field are the cause of both syndromes. They themselves are unglamorous for the most…

It seems to have brought us together."--Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles Lakers, in an interview prior to last season (October 2013).And the adversity just keeps coming.  Many people have predicted another losing season for the Los Angeles Lakers, who have lost the first five games of the 2014-2015 NBA season.

  • The Business Case Study in Atlanta (or Bruce Levenson is a Big Scaredy Pants)

    Racism is alive and well (and disgusting).  Yes, we all should be able to see that.  That isn't news. Is Bruce Levenson a racist?  Is there a lesson there? The better lesson may be that Bruce Levenson let fear (albeit racially-based) and ignorance drive his business decisions. He and the NBA lost millions of dollars in Atlanta and drove a potentially valuable brand, the Atlanta Hawks, into the ground. It appears he is most guilty of being an ignorant, horrible business man. How did he do that? Very simply, he failed in some extremely basic ways.  He forgot some…

    1:00 PM – (2) Penn State vs Virginia Tech It’s been steady as you were for Penn State through two rounds. Given some of the displays of their seeded brethren, PSU’s calm 4-1 demolition of MAC double winners Buffalo flew under the radar a bit. And so it was once more on Friday for the Nittany Lions. Against a UConn side that posed a very real threat to PSU’s ambitions of advancing, the Big Ten champs put together a confident display in the first half to take an early lead through Frannie Crouse and didn’t really look back. Things evened out in the second…

  • Setting Triathlon Goals – Racing Happy

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

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

My one race wasn’t with my my Rev3 family. Go ahead and ignore everything I’m about to say if you want because Rev3 sponsors me and I’ve never had to pay to do any of their races, but know this. My triathlon team was the third group of people that I made sure knew about my accident right after my own family and close group of friends. They are legit “family” in my books.

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

Earlier this year, Darren Rovell reported that Seattle only pays $5,000 per year for this, but they cannot use the term on merchandise (even though, as also reported by Mr. Rovell, the Seahawks #12 “Fan” jersey was a top-10 best selling jersey back in March of this year).

Despite getting a slight advantage from white pieces in the Russian variation of Grunfeld defence, he didn’t stretch the position enough to induce mistakes from Magnus Carlsen.

    When a sportsman or woman is suffering from an ailment or experiencing physical body injury, he or she has the option of either seeking medical treatments or to try and treat the condition on their own. Often treating the injury by oneself is meant to serve only as a first aid measure before getting specialized attention. The mistake that a number of patients do is that they do not consider getting any further medical attention until when it is almost too late. For them once they carry out the first aid treatments and the pain is gone, they assume that all is well. However after some time the…

One of the saddest days of my Sox life was November 13, 1978 when I heard on the radio that Luis had signed with the Yankees. It was the ultimate indignity- the most popular Bosox player in decades and their first true black hero was going down the river.

  • Liverpool Legend Jamie Carragher Weighs in on Reds Palace Performance

    News Desk
    23 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    Jamie is getting worried The blows just keep coming for Liverpool following their tepid defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace yesterday, and one of the hardest body blows has come from former defender Jamie Carragher. The Reds legend, now a pundit on Sky Sports, was unabashed in his criticism of his former side following their capitulation at Selhurst Park yesterday — even going so far to admit that he’s getting very worried about them. “Luis Suarez has gone, so what? There’s no leadership on the pitch. As a Liverpool fan which I am – I don’t care about…
  • Post Match Interview: Brendan Rodgers Shoulders the Blame for Palace Debacle

    23 Nov 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Video courtesy of LFC Tiki Taka By the time Crystal Palace captain Mile Jedinak curled in a spectacularly struck free-kick to well and truly put the game out of Liverpool’s reach, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers looked nothing short of shell shocked. There’s no question that he’s under real pressure now following the Reds fourth defeat on the trot, and though it may seem a bit daft to do so, he’s ready to shoulder the blame. “We’re not quite together as a team, which is what we pride our work on. We need to find a solution very quickly because it was very…
  • Liverpool (1) Crystal Palace (3): Reds Hit a New Low With Latest Croydon Collapse

    The lowlights. Again. It’s a comedy of errors, but no one, bar the rest of the league, is laughing as Liverpool continue their winless streak with a gutless performance against Premier League basement dwellers Crystal Palace. Well, they were in the basement, anyway. The Eagles weathered an early storm to pull level through Dwight Gayle after Rickie Lambert scored his first goal for the Reds within the opening two minutes. The poor decision making of the visitors will be one of the main talking points to come out of the second half as a pair of blunders handed Palace two goals in four…

With the news that Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge would be on ice for at least another six weeks with a recurrence of his long-standing thigh problem, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he’s going to have to shake things up in order to find a winning formula for the Anfield outfit. It’s a startling fact that Liverpool don’t have a striker on the books — the injured Sturridge aside — that has found the net in the league. Mario Balotelli has failed to adapt as a lone striker, Fabio Borini has been more of an after-thought than a…

The striker, who was pictured at the ECHO Arena last night taking in the Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverley, picked up a groin injury while training with the Italian national team over the recent international break and, it would appear, he’s failed to recover in time.

    Richard Murray
    10 Nov 2014 | 4:21 am
    Novak Djokovic has won the last two ATP World Tour Finals at London’s O2 Arena – and the betting market seems to suggest he’s a foregone conclusion to win the 2014 event too. This is understandable; with Rafael Nadal out due to an appendix operation, Djokovic’s competition has been diluted. It seems as if the main challenge will come from veteran Roger Federer and UK hopeful Andy Murray. As things stand the pre-tournament betting, Djokovic is a 5/6 chance, followed by Roger Federer at a best-priced 4-1 and Andy Murray available at a maximum of 7-1. And if you were staking your life on…

    When football trick plays work, they’re a lot of fun to watch. A well-run trick play might make the local news, and the better ones can go from a lot of hits on YouTube to a viral sensation. Trick plays can also change the outcome of games. In addition to plays resulting in scores, the plays can be demoralizing for opponents. From PeeWee games to the NFL, you’ll find coaches trying to outfox the opponents with some trickery.

    Indeed there are many things to learn with your Photoshop CS. But once you learn them you can tailor the options for your own use. Let’s take a look at an overview of what you can expect from a basic Photoshop CS tutorial. First, create a new layer (Layer, New, New Layer). Then, grab your polygonal lasso tool. What you want to create is a rectangle-ish object that has top corners slightly in further than the bottom corners. The easiest way to do this is to create 1/2 of the bag, duplicate the layer, and flip the duplicated layer. If you have a graphics tablet or are really comfortable…

  • Looking At Danny Santana

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

    Erik Voldness
    4 Nov 2014 | 10:01 pm
    Aaron Hicks is not yet a bust. I realize that's an unpopular opinion amongst the Twins faithful, but a simple understanding of his numbers makes it a fact.Calling Hicks a bust seems to stem from him struggling offensively over the last two seasons in the big leagues. The thought process seems to be that he got two years to show he belonged on the team, and he struggled. Of course, each season was less than half a season's worth of at bats, so Hicks first two years in the big leagues are really the equivalent of most rookies first seasons.To be fair, Hicks hasn't just struggled with the bat,…

    31 Oct 2014 | 11:53 am
    Ricky Rubio can't shoot. I would imagine looking through basketball fans tweets during a Timberwolves game would reveal several tweets complaining about Rubio's shooting ability. And while it is true that Rubio's shooting leaves a lot to be desired, fans as usual focus on the "flashy" part of the game rather than the big picture.When Miguel Cabrera won the triple crown, many fans were convinced that he HAD to be the MVP, because he had won the triple crown for goodness sakes! How could he not win it? It's simple; fans and writers and even "baseball experts" had been valuing the wrong parts of…
  • 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…

    It’s a hard pill to swallow, but in life, there will be those who rejoice in seeing you fail. And relationships are absolutely no different… In fact, you can count on it. This is what I was thinking after watching the Miami Heat’s 27-game winning streak come to a humbled end by the competitive ball play of the Chicago Bulls (100-97). While the game and real-life relationships are worlds apart, it’s beneficial to notice the similarities. Within both,  you need passion, commitment, a work ethic to make things work, a love for what you’re doing, communication,…

  • Utah Utes Football: Tevin Carter Comeback

    Patrick Thomsen
    19 Nov 2014 | 1:37 pm
    Tevin Carter is a difference maker. From making big hits to his pick 6 against UCLA, Carter imposed his presence on opposing teams and added another nasty element to an already nasty defense. The problem is because of injuries he’s only been able to play in less than 4 full games this season. Some might say, the Utes would have only 1 loss had Carter been healthy and able to suit up, that’s how big of a game changer he is. So the question that has been on everyone’s mind lately is: Will Tevin Carter be back next season? According to Coach Whittingham, they will apply…

  • Robert Griffin III remains Washington starter, but fantasy value is disappearing

    Jon Benne

    Washington is sticking with its embattled franchise quarterback despite another poor game. We break down the fantasy implications. Washington head coach Jay Gruden confirmed that Robert Griffin III will be the starting quarterback for the Week 13 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Gruden said that there is "every intent" to start Griffin despite another poor performance. Griffin's struggles continued in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He threw for just 106 yards on 11-of-19 passing with no touchdowns and lost a fumble at the end of the game when Washington had a chance to…

    Two New York area teams play in Detroit Monday. After getting buried in over eight feet of snow earlier this week, the Buffalo Bills have been forced to relocate their Week 12 game to Detroit's Ford Field. It will be there that they will "host" the AFC East rival New York Jets. 2014 has been a year to forget for the Jets. They've already been eliminated from the division race. New York can be completely scratched from the playoff picture with a loss to Buffalo. If and when that happens, it will all but officially spell the end of Rex Ryan's six-year tenure with the team. Though he brought the…

But unlike Koke, who has won La Liga and played in a Champions League final with Atleti, while emerging as one of Spain's best young players, Borja never quite broke though. Instead, he dropped to the lower divisions, where there aren't many riches, or fans, but he can still score 30-yard screamers. Like this one. And adorably, Koke was at the match watching his brother at the match.

However, when the team that was supposed to be playing the Brendan Rodgers philosophy of keeping possession instead became the best counter-attacking side in the league, largely due to Luis Suarezs ability, he ultimately failed to get his side across the line. While he deserves some credit for even getting the Reds into the top four, there…

    The Bracket: Week 1 Results (SEE FULL BRACKET)  The first week is complete in our search for the greatest fictional coach of all time. There weren’t too many surprises. There were only two matchups in which the lower seed didn’t win. Voting continues below. Gordon Bombay (1) vs. Danny O’Shea (4) Gordon Bombay of the Mighty Ducks easily beat Coach Danny O’Shea of the Little Giants. Danny may have been able to win in the upset against his more talented brother, but he couldn’t pull it off this time. Phil Brickma (2) vs. Morris Buttermaker (3) Phil Brickma may as…

  • 4 Signs That You Are Doing “Team” the Right Way

    18 Nov 2014 | 6:09 am
    There are thousands and thousands of youth sports teams, but how many of them are really doing team the right way? As a sports mom for 21 years, I watched my kids play on over 100 teams, and if I am being honest I will have to say that a lot of them had no clue about how to do team the right way. What makes a good team? As a coach, here are the team characteristics you should be striving to nurture, and as a parent, here’s the kind of team you should be seeking. It won’t happen every season, but when it does, it’s almost magical. Good teams don’t take no for an answer when it comes to…

    The Bracket (SEE FULL BRACKET) Some of the greatest coaches to grace the gridiron or pace the hardwood have been fictional. They hold a special place in pop culture history, and sometimes we wish they could hop out of the TV and give us a pep talk. Unfortunately the closest we can get is flipping on the TV or digging into our Netflix queue. Many Friday nights have been lost listening to the wise words of “Wax on, wax off,” “Ducks fly together!” and “Clear Eyes. Full hearts. Can’t Lose!” Each fictional coach has his own style, but we want to know who…

    Cleveland (6 - 4) 27 @ Atlanta (4 - 6) 24: The Browns stumbled at home last week in a game they really needed to win. Four of their last six are on the road as they head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons. This is an interesting pick as neither team has exhibited overpowering offenses, so the matchups will be important. The Brown give up a lot of yards on the ground, but the Falcons don't have a very effective running game.Tennessee (2 - 8) 20 @ Philadelphia (7 - 3) 30: The Eagles looked pathetic last week, but then again the Packers are making a lot of teams look pathetic over the last few…

    Several SEC teams are playing bye weeks disguised as FCS football teams. Kirk Herbstreet, on ESPN's College Gameday, suggested that these games shouldn't be played and that the teams should be penalized. I tend to agree, except the SEC is one of the few conferences to play league games in the first week or two of the season. Auburn, who is playing Samford today, opened the season against western division foe Arkansas. Georgia, who hosts Charleston Southern, opened their schedule with Clemson and South Carolina. And Clemson isn't in the ACC, but they opened against Georgia and host recent a…

The Chiefs face a short week after a really tough game against the Seahawks. It's difficult for me to predict that Oakland can pull the upset, but after my abysmal prognostications last week, I'm throwing caution to the wind and going with the home team on a Thursday night. Teams coming off games with the Seahawks tend to have a difficult time physically recovering, and in this case…

    There were more than a few upsets this week. Fortunately, I maintained a pretty good season record by predicting my share. Arkansas finally broke their record 17 game SEC losing streak. I couldn't get the Arizona teams right, but I got my other two Pac-12 picks correct. My Hokies held on to defeat number 21 Duke, keeping alive their efforts to get to their 22nd consecutive bowl game. And in the big one, Alabama prevailed against Mississippi State, probably securing a spot in this week's top four.My prediction for playoffs remains the same, despite TCU's lackluster performance at Kansas.

There is no doubt that High School football is becoming more competitive and exciting to watch.  The skill level of many High School athletes is increasing as more private coaching and access to online training are readily available.

Walk up and down the pool imagining there is a football on the surface of the water, try and kick the football but when kicking point your toes and feel the pressure of the water on the shin and the tops of your feet. This drill will allow you to feel the water pushing against the leg as it should when you’re kicking. There will not be this much movement during your kick. You can do this next drill with or without a float, we always…

    Current starting quarterback of the Washington Redskins, Robert Griffin, III, has had some problems executing his position to his head coach’s satisfaction. Last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brought that into stark relief. RGIII threw interceptions when there was no need to force throws, appeared to feel that his protection in the pocket was breaking down when it was not and, as Jay Gruden said to the media on Monday following the game, “he took three-step drops when he should have taken five. He took a one-step drop when he should have taken three…” and so on.

  • Ohio State Ready For 7th Ranked Spartans

    5 Nov 2014 | 3:37 am
    Ohio State (No 13) is ready to meet Michigan State (No 7) Saturday night in primetime on national television (ABC 8:00pm) on the road. The underdog Buckeye coaches were asked after the Illinois win about plays from last year’s Big Ten Championship game that they still think about. Tom Herman hasn’t thought about the 4th and 2 play call that lost the game for OSU last year, at least not since fall camp began and the coaches put all their focus on this year’s team. He did talk about the challenge that playing Michigan State’s highly regarded defense is for the Buckeyes. He has been busy…

    Du leidest an Verstopfungen und starken Bauchschmerzen? Dann kann eine Darmträgheit vorliegen. Sie ist die Folge eines aus dem Gleichgewicht geratenen Darms. Wenn Dein Arzt die Diagnose “Darmträgheit” trifft, dann verschreibt er vielfach Abführmittel. Diese sorgen für ein einmaliges Absetzen des Kots, eine langfristige Verbesserung wird allerdings nicht erzielt. Die Medikamente verfügen über verschiedene Nebenwirkungen und stellen das Darmgleichgewicht nicht wieder her. Wenn Du die Ursachen nicht bekämpfst, dann werden die Verstopfungen mit der Zeit schlimmer werden.

  • Notebook: Beilein ‘not thinking about any changes’ to starting lineup

    Alejandro Zúñiga
    23 Nov 2014 | 9:20 am
    Kameron Chatman has struggled to begin the season, but expect to keep seeing plenty of him. The freshman has started the year shooting just 18.8% (3-for-16) from the floor and has yet to hit a three-pointer. John Beilein, though, has no plans to take the 6-foot-7 wing player out of his starting lineup. “We’re not thinking about any changes in [our starters] right now at all,” Beilein said Saturday morning in a teleconference. Though Chatman played 30 minutes in Michigan’s opener against Hillsdale, he was limited to 20 minutes against Bucknell and then just 12 on Thursday against…

    Michigan pulled away from Detroit in the final minutes Thursday night to claim a 72-61 win. Here are Five Key Plays from the Wolverines’ first close game of the year. 1) In-and-out threes highlight poor shooting start The Wolverines shot just 10-of-29 (34.5%) in the first half, and they entered the break down 28-27. The poor performance wasn’t a result of bad opportunities — Michigan had plenty of open looks. Things just weren’t falling. Nowhere was that more apparent than a pair of back-to-back three-point attempts in transition early in the first half. On the first, Walton grabbed a…

    Allison Farrand When Michigan needed a spark against Detroit on Thursday night, it didn’t turn to Kameron Chatman or Aubrey Dawkins, its two most athletic freshmen. The Wolverines didn’t look to Mark Donnal or Ricky Doyle, either. In fact, they didn’t rely on any of the freshmen. Instead, they put the game in the hands of their veterans: the reliable core of Caris LeVert, Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton, the improvisation of Spike Albrecht and the disciplined understanding of Max Bielfeldt. And when the Titans took a four-point lead early in the second half, that group got to work.

Michigan’s freshmen are all promising players, but trailing Detroit early in the second half, John Beilein had no choice. He went with his veterans. Much has been made about the fact that Beilein only has five scholarship players on his roster that aren’t freshmen, but that doesn’t mean he can’t put them all on the floor at once. Spike Albrecht was inserted into the game just 67 seconds into the second half and he…

    In sports, there are some games where everything goes wrong and a team has an embarrassing loss. Cincinnati Bengals’ head coach, Marvin Lewis, dealt with this recently and said: “Sometimes you gotta hit rock bottom before you can go all the way back up to the top, and we certainly were at rock bottom a few weeks ago on Thursday night.” We can argue whether the Bengals really hit rock bottom, since they still have a great chance to win their division, but the concept of hitting rock bottom is an interesting one.

  • 5 Tips for Taking Great Leads and Putting Pressure on the Defense

    17 Nov 2014 | 3:00 am
    As a player, I loved running bases. It’s so super fun to push your limits, make your opponents sweat a little, and take extra bases any time the opportunity arises. Good baserunners give defenses something to think about. They’re always a threat. They make things tough for the opposing defense and add pressure to otherwise “routine” situations and plays. All this distraction on the bases often takes focus off the batter. It can also open up holes for batters to hit through. When you… take extra bases every chance you get put added pressure on the defense open up…

After all I’d seen players add weight lifting to their training. Yes, they got stronger, but they got slower too. Slower in running. Slower in pitching. Slow is not a goal in softball training. When I went to college, our strength and conditioning coach had us to “lower weights” and “higher reps” in the weight room. My understanding was that we stayed “light” on the weights since speed was important in…

    Last week was the longest period without running ever since I started to dream about finishing a triathlon. And it felt soo good! I think I’ve fully recovered from Auckland Marathon and I’m ready to give my best in upcoming weeks. In 16 weeks I’m going to swim 3.8km, cycle 180 and run a full marathon in breathtaking Taupo. This is how I’m going to prepare for it.

    26 Oct 2014 | 4:36 am Football could be a brutal sport and getting injured comes with playing it on both the professional and amateur level. Getting tackled does not only mean dislocations and broken bones – it also includes head trauma. It is not unheard of to hear football players suffering from all sorts of head injuries, ranging from concussions to memory loss. The protective gear is there, but it cannot entirely remove the risk involved in participating in such a physically punishing sport.

For most coaches, the biggest challenge is coming up with good strategic plays that will work year after year, while still finding time to actually train and develop players under their charge. This is a problem faced by both pros and amateur coaches, but more so by those who work as part-time coaches in the high school, small-college, and youth-league ranks. How it all began Back in 2011 when Coiner was taking a…

Now almost two decades later and seemingly out of nowhere, Under Armour has managed to break into the top ranks of the sports apparel industry.

    24 Nov 2014 | 7:03 am
    Jim Caldwell was trying to minimize the pain, get out before the bomb went off. The questions didn’t stop. Most of them were the same, some variation of, ‘Why has the offense sucked?’ Caldwell let the pressure pierce him. His demeanor changed. He spoke clear and fast, but with bitterness. He was either a man without answers or one with answers he’d rather not say. Caldwell spent a lot of his press conference saying he needed to “look at the film.” The reason for the offensive struggles? We’ll have to take a look at the film. How were the Patriots so…

    Thank this guy for Darren Helm On June 16, 1990, the NHL converged upon BC Place Stadium in Vancouver for the NHL Entry Draft. The Red Wings’ Bryan Murray was in his first year as coach and GM and was tasked with improving a team that had posted a 28-38-14 the previous season and finished last in the Norris Division Murray selected Keith Primeau with the third overall selection. The Red Wings had no second-round selection, so Murray’s next pick came in at the top of the third, when he selected Vyacheslav “Slava” Kozlov with the 45th overall pick. Primeau would become…

Most of them said roughly the same thing: “I’ve been a Howard detractor, but he’s been really good this year.” Howard’s goals against average is down to 1.97 from 2.66 and his save percentage has risen 14 points — from .910 to .924 — in comparison to last year. Want to bring analytics into it? Howard had 8.3 Goalie Point Shares for the Red Wings last season. That’s 8.9 percent of Detroit’s 93 points. This year Howard has…

They stood at the podium and in the hallway and spouted off about how they had to be better, how that Cardinals team was good, how the offense needed to score off those two interceptions. Those could be their true emotions. But I imagine when they reconvene on Tuesday there will be a little fear. Let’s get it out of the way: the officiating wasn’t good. Fox’s officiating analyst, Mike Pereira, came on TV and proclaimed the Ebron play at the end of the half was a certain first down only to…

The Skins badly needed to make a stop — they almost certainly win the game if they do — and they could not stop Frank Gore from running up the middle from for three yards and continuing the drive.

    Some members of the media will have you believe that the Giants players have stopped playing for their coach. While most of them are just stirring the pot, some of them are clueless. The Giants defense showed heart and played well enough to win under their embattled DC Perry Fewell. It was the offense, in particular Eli Manning, who gave the game to the 49ers. With Pugh out, Manning was under pressure all game and until the 4th quarter, the running game was no help. We have seen Eli have bad games but this was almost laughable. While I long for the days where the Giants would run it four…

The Giants must show discipline on defense this week or it will be another disaster. Can Perry Fewell put his defense in position to compete this week or will this team give another sub-par effort? On the other side of the ball, the running game should get a boost depending on how many snaps Jennings will play, but let’s hope Eli stays patient and doesn’t force the ball into double…

For a while it looked promising and then, during a record setting performance by the Seahawks, it all collapsed drastically. I can’t believe at the highest level of football, the best coaches and players in the world, that the Giants had no adjustment to stop the “zone read.” When JPP was asked after the game, “Were there any adjustments…

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

    After a less than impressive campaign, there aren’t too many players who fans would have a problem with leaving the club. Aside from the likes of Christian Eriksen and Hugo Lloris, whose performances have merited their popularity and support from the fans, there's one player, who seems to have all of our support, regardless of his performances on the pitch. Sandro.The self-proclaimed, ‘Beast’, joined Tottenham in March 2010 for around £8 Million from Internacional. He experienced a stop start couple of years at the plan, having to play second fiddle in the defensive midfield role…

    Schalke 04 will try to secure their play-off qualification in the match against the group leaders, as Chelsea look forward to continue their unbeaten run and a third win is on the cards for the Blues. The press has pitted this match as a revenge for Roberto Di Matteo, Schalke’s newest coach that won the Champions League in Munich in 2012 with Chelsea only to be fired several months later. The first match ended in a 1-1 draw, and since then Schalke has been in a slump in Bundesliga, but since Di Matteo took over, they started to recover and it got to the point where they won against the…

    A controversial red card shown to Gaston Ramirez cost Hull dearly as Tottenham came from behind to rise to 10th. Ramirez received for his marching orders for kicking out at Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen in an off the ball incident but there did not seem to be much malice in the coming together at all. Ex-Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore rifled the Tigers in front after just eight minutes but Harry Kane equalized soon after the hour. Christian Eriksen settled the occasion with an angled shot past Allan McGregor in the 90th minute to leave Hull fans cursing referee Craig Pawson.

Late strikes from Joe Ledley and an astonishing Mile Jedinak free-kick sealed the three points for Palace despite Liverpool taking the lead after just two minutes. Rickie Lambert scored his first goal in Liverpool colours to give his boyhood club a dream start before Palace pegged them back. It was a goal made in Southampton with Lambert latching onto Adam Lallana’s through ball before tucking the ball past Julian Speroni. Dwight Gayle…

    Which teams are most likely to make college football’s first-ever four-team playoff? And which have the best chance of coming away with the national title?The quick answer is the obvious one: The Alabama Crimson Tide lead the way on both counts. They’re No. 1 in the playoff selection committee’s current rankings and No. 1 according to most computer systems, including ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI). Alabama is no stranger to postseason success, having won the national title in 2009, 2011 and 2012.But it won’t be easy for Alabama, or anyone else. To win the national title, the…

Well, they won. Then in Week 4 they dropped to 2-2, and the end of an era was supposedly nigh. Except no. Pats will be Pats, and now they’ve won their last six games en route to the best record in the AFC.

The loss ruined the Bulldogs’ quest for their first undefeated season since 1940, when they went 10-0-1.But under college football’s new playoff system, which will select four teams to contend for the national championship, a late-season loss by a No. 1 team isn’t as devastating as in years past. Mississippi State, for instance, fell only to No. 4 in the committee’s rankings after it…

The Sixers are an absolute mess right now, and are so bad that the general public truly believes Kentucky could beat them in a one on one game. While that isn't happening, they still are not good enough to beat an NBA team right now. Sure they will get a few wins against weaker teams who are having an off night, but that won't happen against the Suns.

First, Kyle Seager. He’s been a durable, solid option for the Mariners, and was rewarded for that with a 7-year, $100 million extension. Any other year, a 7-year deal would seem like a lifetime, but the 2104 free agency period will of course be shrouded by 13-year deals. Seager hit .268 last…

    It annoys me that I’m even writing about the idiotic “controversy” that has surrounded Derrick Rose for the past few days, but considering people won’t stop talking about it, there doesn’t seem to be any other option. First, the context. The following is what Rose said about missing games this season. I know a lot of people get mad when they see me sit out. But I think a lot of people don’t understand that when I sit out it’s not because of this year. I’m thinking about long-term. I’m thinking about after I’m done with basketball,…

    11 Nov 2014 | 6:00 am
    Prior to Masahiro Tanaka being posted during the 2013-14 MLB offseason, MLB and NPB (Nippon Professional Baseball) reached a new agreement to override the old posting system.1 However, only players coming from NPB are part of this new system. Players from other leagues all around the world, though effectively just South Korea currently, are subject to the old blind bidding system to get the right to negotiate a contract with the player. Pitchers are the popular type of player to come over from international leagues outside of Cuba. Pitching can be scouted with or without competitive hitting,…

  • The NFL Gets It Right, Finally

    20 Nov 2014 | 6:58 pm
    In a season full of missteps and selfishness the National Football League finally made a good decision. The New York Jets v.s. Buffalo Bills game will be rescheduled to Monday Nov. 24 at 7:00 p.m. in Detroit, Michigan. This will be the Bills’ second game at Ford Field this year, as they defeated the Lions 17-14. Optimistically, with this being the second Bills game at Ford Field, Buffalo still has home field advantage, as the Jets have not traveled to Detroit this year. Losing a true home game is unfortunate, especially for such a lively fan base. In a competitive sense it is certainly a…

This past weekend kicked off with the Marlins dropping a bomb in signing slugger Giancarlo Stanton to a record $325 Million contract over the next 13 seasons. That’s a lot of money, man.

The Victory had recruited unbelievably well in the off-season, but it would remain to be seen what Kevin Muscat (the world’s dirtiest player) would do with his gameplan.

    There are 23 men short-listed for FIFA’s 2014 Ballon d’Or (Footballer of The Year). None of them are English. Does this mean that English footballers are just not good enough? Does that also explain the reason why the English team failed to get pass the group stages in 2014 World Cup final? Before you say anything, note that Spain also suffered the same fate in Brazil and yet three of their players are in the short list. Baffled?

Oleh itu, menggunakan teknik hook menjadi susah, lantaran lane yang tidak terjaga menyebabkan hook yang dibuat kurang menjadi (tiada grip pada lane) atau sering tersasar.

    Cookie shares with us his selections for the weekends Premier League football, and had you have been following his selections this season you would be looking at a healthy 17% profit on your investment thus far! Great tipping.Liverpool v Chelsea Chelsea are rightly at the top of the table, and are looking the best team in the league, Liverpool however are looking a poor version of themselves from last season. But I think the pricing on this game reflects that too drastically. Its hard to justify Chelsea being around a 11/10 shot to go and win at Anfield against a Liverpool team that rested…

    More winners again last week, after the international football break we get going again with some interesting fixtures and some equally interesting football betting tips from Game of Odds blogger and resident tipster, Cookie.Manchester City v Tottenham This matchup has recently brought us a lot of goals, 30 goals in the last 6, and should make for an interesting early kick off for the Premier League.

  • Championship Week 6 Preview & Betting Tips

    24 Nov 2014 | 6:06 am
    Cookie took profit on both last weekend and this week’s midweek fixtures in the Championship, and he’s convinced about a few games with big plays this weekend. Cookie has a bigger stake available this weekend due to midweek winners - so is staking approx £12,000 this weekendWatford v Bournemouth I’ve been quite sweet about the chances of Bournemouth in their last two games, and they have let me down on both occasions, and this is very much a case of twice bitten thrice shy for me. Watford are without Troy Deeney and Fernando Foresieri, so are missing options up front (those two…

  • New Mobile Healthcare Applications will Save Americans Time, Money

    13 Nov 2014 | 2:13 pm
    According to a 2013 survey conducted by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, 43% of American physicians use mobile health technology for clinical purposes. That number is bound to increase dramatically thanks to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently approving new services to be covered in 2015, including mental health services. Still, due to the limited number of mobile health services covered by American health insurance companies, the majority and most popular mobile health applications are designed to provide preventative care. That’s not a bad place to start…

    “Somebody once said that DNA moves in mysterious ways.” I could hear the drum beating. A strange dark rhythm coming from deep within the mist. My companion had come in full regalia – full military gear complete with a Winchester AR-15 assault rifle and a big ugly .45 Smith & Wesson. I convinced him to leave the former in the big grey Cadillac, which we had conveniently parked far off the shoulder of the highway, with the headlights off, of course. “Leave the engine running,” I said, “and for Christ’s sakes put that fucking machine gun away, man. He doesn’t fight with…
  • The 2014 Elections are Over

    Clayton L. Luce
    10 Nov 2014 | 12:46 pm
    The Elections are over now, and the vote-pimps have receded back into dark-wet corners and underground bunkers and big, pink Cadillacs, with signs like “VOTE OR DIE” or “I’LL BREAK A LEG FOR THE GOP” crudely taped onto tinted windows. They are silent for now, licking their wounds and sleeping off victory hangovers. The winners won big this year and the losers lost bigger. Obama and his administration of Black Panthers were beaten like cheap whores by the GOP which dusted off its national chest of Nazi propaganda pamphlets and united the White Power base into a riotous frenzy…
  • John Wick is Why We Still Go to Movie Theaters

    7 Nov 2014 | 3:39 pm
    The plot is not complicated. An assassin takes an impossible job to get out of the business in order to spend more time with his dying wife. She dies, but gives him a reason to live – a dog. Some prick kills the dog, and the assassin goes back to work. John Wick doesn’t need a complicated, dramatic plot to be the reason why we still got to movie theaters. I’d been jacked to see John Wick since Doug Benson recommended it on his podcast, “Doug Loves Movies.” John Wick is the perfect film to see with a large audience on the big screen, so when my cousin and I got to…

First, he said he’d like his nickname to be spelled ‘Mollie,” citing that it looks more masculine, but I suggested his nickname be Paulie, as in a guy named Paul from St. Paul and the big sign in center field featuring a guy from St. Paul named Paulie.

    Lewis Hamilton has won his 2nd Formula One world championship after taking victory at the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    Lewis Hamilton has won the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and with it the Formula One drivers’ championship after Nico Rosberg suffered with mechanical issues and fell from 2nd to 14th in the second half of the race. Rosberg was 2 seconds behind the Brit after losing the lead at turn 1, but a combination of multiple problems developed on his car which saw him fall out of the points and out of contention for the title. The win wasn’t as simple as Lewis might have thought heading into the final few laps. Felipe Massa had the faster tyre compound fitted to his Williams in order to give…

    Nico Rosberg is on pole position for the all important championship showdown between himself and team-mate Lewis Hamilton in tomorrow’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Hamilton looked to have the edge in the first two qualifying sessions, but a lock-up on his first run in the top 10 shoot-out evaporated his momentum and allowed Rosberg to steal pole position.

  • See and Be Seen: Choosing Bike Lights

    19 Nov 2014 | 2:43 am
    You can get a cheap small pair of front/rear bike lights if all you want is to get home safe when you end up staying out late. But these days there are far more options available than just that. One of the key questions to ask yourself is what you need the lights for: to see or to be seen? “Nightriding” mountain bikers need a powerful steady broader beam to be able to see trail features such as rocks, drops and trees before they’re right on top of them. Road cyclists need something different. In urban areas, you want to be seen by traffic, so you need a good flashing light.

    Jason Whitney The city of Buffalo, New York has been getting pounded by snow this past week to the tune of record levels. Despite the killer storm, this hasn’t stopped players and native Buffalonians from enjoying one of the worst winter storms ever. While the Buffalo sports teams have had to either relocate or worry about fans showing up to the games because of the snow, some residents have used this winter storm as an opportunity to get creative. And this was certainly the case when a Buffalo native used Taylor Swift’s smash hit song “Shake If Off’ to shovel the…

    Jason Whitney Oakland Raiders fans have been subjected to some of the worst football any fan base has had to endure since their last successful season back in 2002-2003 – when the team made the Super Bowl. After being slaughtered by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that year in the Super Bowl, Oakland went into a downward spiral like no other team in NFL history. The last decade plus have featured an array of head coaches, losses and failed draft picks. But there was some slight success during this dreadful tenure and that came from former coach Hue Jackson.

  • It’s not a good idea to ride a bike to the Bills’ stadium to shovel snow

    Jim Racalto News broke earlier today that the Buffalo Bills are willing to pay 500 fans ten bucks an hour and give them free game tickets if they will shovel snow at Ralph Wilson Stadium. For those living in a cave, the Buffalo area was buried by snow yesterday, and another round with mother nature is expected tonight. While a lot of die-hard fans will probably answer the call, getting to the stadium in such horrid conditions can be a problem. Especially if you don’t own a car, and instead opt to try to ride a Huffy. A Reddit user was hired to help shovel, but had some traveling issues.

Yet somehow, the Bengals signed him to a six-year, $115 million contract in the offseason. He will make $22 million by February, and the rest is not guaranteed completely. The Bengals are essentially getting robbed of $18 million this season. The Bengals are still 5-3-1, but it has been a rocky road, and this really doesn’t look like a playoff team, despite being very much alive. Dalton’s stat line Thursday night was of epic proportions.

Outfielder for the Miami Marlins, and I have more money than you.Stanton’s not a guy who gets that much coverage because he plays for a terrible, terrible Marlins team, but he’s consistently been putting up numbers. He’s a power hitter with the ability to clear not just fences but entire stadiums. He’s coming off his best season yet (his fifth in the majors) where he hit 37 homers with 105 RBI at an average of .288.

    14 Nov 2014 | 2:45 am NZ Breakers 71-55 Wollongong HawksWell… it wasn’t always pretty.But the Breakers are 7-3 now, riding a strong finish at home against the Hawks to overcome a horrendous third quarter in which they scored just three points. Count ‘em, one two three.It was disastrous, yet somehow at the end of that quarter the scores were still tied! 47-47. NZB shot 1-18 from the field in that duration but they at least found the zone defensively (and some luck, sure) to keep Wollongong to only 13 themselves. 13 in a quarter? That’s really good in most situations.The secret trap door…
