The Capitals got one and averted a major case of deja vu with a wire-to-wire 5-2 drubbing of the Penguins Monday to force the Game 7 hockey fans so badly wanted but weren’t sure would ever come.

the Cavaliers just keep finding ways to make these deals happen.

It helps, too, that Griffin is employed by an owner, Dan Gilbert, who has been willing to suck up a sizable tax bill.

Jacoby Brissett wrote a heartfelt letter to President Obama after the Patriots’ White House visit

I am writing this letter to say thank you. I want to thank you for what you have done for this country — outside of politics. Honestly, I don’t know enough about politics to judge what was good or bad, but I want you to know that when you said “Yes We Can” — a […]
