Iona pulled within one on a pair of free throws by Rickey McGill with 8.9 seconds left. After the inbounds, […]

Jeter’s first three months as an owner have been an awakening.

As an aside, I asked one veteran scout for his over/under on the combined home run total for Stanton and Judge this season. The scout predicted Stanton will hit 53, Judge 48, Gary Sanchez 35 and Greg Bird 33. That’s 171 total for four players — or three more than the entire Boston Red Sox […]

The 2011 Winter Classic will be remembered for two reasons.

The hype for this game was off the charts: Two blood rival teams, and the NHL’s two biggest stars in Sidney Crosby vs. Alex Ovechkin. Plus, the Penguins and Capitals were featured on the first season of HBO’s 24/7 series dedicated to the Winter Classic, which remains the gold standard for the genre. (We’ll always […]

This really shouldn’t have been as incredible as it was.

There was no iconic venue, as the Philadelphia Phillies’ picturesque stadium was less than a decade old. The weather didn’t exactly put the Winter in the Classic: The game was delayed by sun glare and was eventually played in 45-degree weather with some spotty drizzle. While the Rangers were in their first outdoor game, the […]

Wilson has done his best to carry his entire team with no traditional running game and a depleted defense.

While the well-documented percentage of how much he was producing in relation to the rest of the team helped his cause, it ended up hurting it as the Seahawks struggled too much around him, putting their playoff hopes almost on ice. The games against the Jaguars and Rams back-to-back were make or break for his […]

We know how NHL commissioner Gary Bettman feels about passing on Pyeongchang in 2018.

Brees, who will lead the Saints (11-4) against the Buccaneers (4-11) on Sunday with a chance to clinch the NFC South, said his great-grandfather was a straw boss or basically like a sharecropper on a big property and his grandfather grew up in a house with basically a dirt floor, no running water, no electricity. […]

NFL power rankings 2017, Week 7: The Saints might actually have a defense

There are still two teams without a win, but there are no teams without a loss after only six weeks. The Kansas City Chiefs were the last to fall and did so with a Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys whimper against the Pittsburgh Steelers. For more than half of the game, the Chiefs couldn’t even crack […]

Ben McAdoo’s hair is keeping me up at night

Ben McAdoo’s hair is keeping me up at night. Kirk, a true junior, finished his first two career games against the Alabama defense with 16 receptions, 148 receiving yards, 11 rushing yards, 88 punt return yards, 57 kick return yards, one receiving touchdown, and one punt return touchdown. While that sounds like a player who […]
