• Punter Pat McAfee Fired Off A Tweetstorm About The Colts GM Right After He Was Fired

    The Indianapolis Colts fired GM Ryan Grigson on Saturday. It seemed like a move that needed to happen, as Indy’s on-field performance over the last few years has declined while rumblings of a rift between Grigson and Chuck Pagano have been out there for a while. McAfee has been in Indianapolis since 2009, so he’s seen the inner workings of this organization before and during the Grigson years.

  • Wade apologizes, Butler fumes over bitter NBA Bulls loss

    Dwyane Wade is apologetic, Jimmy Butler is frustrated and the Chicago Bulls are mired in misery after a humbling NBA home loss to Atlanta left them with a losing record. The Hawks took a 35-13 lead after the first quarter on the way to a 102-93 triumph in which 35-year-old starting Bulls guard Wade made only 2-of-10 shots for four points with three rebounds and three assists. "That performance was AWFUL!!! I apologize to all the Chicago fans and Wade fans," tweeted Wade, a three-time NBA champion guard for Miami who joined the Bulls this season.

  • Tim Lincecum is preparing for one more shot at pitching glory

    Former San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum knows that all too well. The former two-time National League Cy Young award winner and three-time World Series champion was once poised to become an all-time great and potential Hall of Famer. Now 32, Lincecum is no longer a star. As Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reported Friday, Lincecum’s agent, Rick Thurman, says his client “is throwing and getting ready for the season.” That means the fact that no one is calling hasn’t stopped Lincecum from pushing to make what seems impossible now a reality later.

    Troubled tennis player Nick Kyrgios acknowledged after his testy loss to Andreas Seppi at the Australian Open this week that he could certainly benefit from having a coach. Andre Agassi says he feels a certain kinship with Kyrgios, but he's not the man for the job. The other factor, Agassi said, is that if he's going to coach, it would have to be with someone who wants to learn.

  • Serena marches on to fourth round

    By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Serena Williams gave compatriot Nicole Gibbs a lesson in grand slam tennis with a 6-1 6-3 thrashing to charge into the fourth round of the Australian Open on Saturday. Having passed her earlier tests against more accomplished players, second seed Williams had far too many weapons for the 92nd-ranked Gibbs, who appeared overawed by the occasion at a sun-drenched Rod Laver Arena. Williams suffered a brief lapse when serving for the match at 5-2 and was broken for the first time, but she promptly broke back to close out the one-sided contest in just over an hour.
