• Patriots Fans Have A Long-Standing Tradition Of Pulling The Fire Alarm On Opponents

    The Patriots are notorious by now around the NFL and its fans for their history of using shady (and at times illegal) tactics to gain a competitive edge over their opponents. The night before their AFC Championship game against the Steelers, there were shenanigans that had nothing to do with the team itself when a Patriots fan pulled the fire alarm at Pittsburgh’s team hotel in the middle of the night. A 25-year-old man from East Boston was arrested for the stunt, and of course has no affiliation with the Patriots organization.

  • Amanda Nunes talks about retirement and 'making history' after beating Ronda Rousey

    Amanda Nunes is confident that she will remain undefeated and retain her Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women's bantamweight champion title until she retires after "two or three fights". The Brazilian fighter's stock has shot up following her brutal 48-second knockout win over Ronda Rousey when the two contested for her title at UFC 207 on 30 December 2016 in Las Vegas. Nunes is ready to defend her title until she calls time on her UFC career, as she is keen to start a family and is aware that she cannot do both simultaneously.

  • 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.

  • Federer shows iron-man quality to reach quarters

    By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Roger Federer showed his 35-year-old legs may yet still carry him to a long-awaited 18th grand slam title as he overhauled fifth seed Kei Nishikori in a five-set slog to reach the Australian Open quarter-finals on Sunday. Having issued a reminder of his class in the 90-minute rout of Tomas Berdych, Federer flaunted his endurance by prevailing 6-7(4) 6-4 6-1 4-6 6-3 after a three hour and 26 minute battle under the lights at Rod Laver Arena. After six months out of the game to recover from a knee injury, Federer's fairytale return will continue against giant-killing German Mischa Zverev, who sensationally ousted top seed Andy Murray on the same centre court only hours before.

    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.

  • Chen holds off 3-time champ Wagner to win US championship

    The three-time champion was focused on warming up for her own performance in the free skate, yet Wagner couldn't help but acknowledge near-perfection - and the standard she now faced. Wagner proceeded to lay down her own dramatic program, but it wasn't enough to overtake the 17-year-old Chen. The bronze medalist two years ago, Chen's free skate score of 141.40 gave her a 214.22 total, which stood up when Wagner under-rotated a combination and had a final combination spin reduced to a Level 2 in her own program.
