  • Aly Raisman on How the Final Five Reacted to Gabby Douglas Getting Bullied

    During the Olympic games, Final Five member Gabby Douglas watched herself be torn apart by internet trolls who dubbed her “Crabby Gabby” for not appearing supportive enough of her teammates during the all-around team competition (Douglas reportedly wasn’t as smiley as her other teammates in the stands) or patriotic enough during the medal ceremony (Douglas did not have her hand on her heart). Now, with the games behind them, Final Five team captain Aly Raisman opened up to E! News about what she, Simone Biles, Laurie Hernandez, and Madison Kocian were doing behind the scenes to help their teammate.

  • With no deal, Chargers withdraw offer to first-rounder Bosa

    Joey Bosa's holdout turned ugly Wednesday when the San Diego Chargers pulled their contract offer to the first-round draft pick and said they'll restructure a new deal that would reflect him playing less than a full season. Bosa has missed all of training camp as his agents and the team wrangle over how much of his $17 million signing bonus he'll get up front, as well as offset language in the case he gets cut. The Chargers were counting on the former Ohio State star to help bolster their pass rush and bring some excitement to a season that could be pivotal to their future in San Diego.

  • The Patriots traded center Bryan Stork to the Redskins, but he could retire

    First, it was reported that the New England Patriots were planning on releasing their third-year center, who started in their Super Bowl XLIX win as a rookie in the 2014 season. Then word arose that the Washington Redskins, seeking an upgrade, had sent a conditional draft pick to the Patriots for Stork. Then came another odd turn: Was the concussion-plagued Stork, 25, considering retiring instead of joining his new team?

  • The Lakers and the NBA are taking another chance on Yi Jianlian

    After a few frustrating free agent chase-downs with Kobe Bryant around, and a 2016 offseason without Bryant on board, the Los Angeles Lakers have mostly committed to the idea of a full-on rebuilding project. New, “rookie” head coach Luke Walton is the team’s biggest free agent signing, there won’t be any agent-favoring vet acquisitions like Carlos Boozer and Roy Hibbert to help fill out the roster, and the team seems fully bent on working with the young prospects it has alongside the 2017 NBA draft pick it will hopefully get to keep next spring. Stuck somewhere in the middle of the favors for representatives, the raw prospects to suss out, and the vets to fill out the roster is the curious case of Yi Jianlian.

  • Andrew Miller induces worst swing of the season with nasty slider

    With that said, we just can’t think of another way to describe this beautiful slider from Cleveland Indians reliever Andrew Miller. Allow us to set the scene: With the Indians up by one run in the ninth inning against the Oakland Athletics, the club turned to Miller to close things out. It was pretty evident Miller had his good stuff during the outing, striking out the first two hitters he faced on just seven pitches.

  • JR Motorsports solidifies driver, sponsor lineup as OneMain reconsiders and returns

    In the span of less than a week, the long-term sponsor outlook of JR Motorsports dramatically has shifted from potentially bleak to firmly bright. On the heels of NASCAR phenom William Byron being added to the Xfinity Series team for the 2017 season (as part of a multiyear deal with Hendrick Motorsports), JRM announced Wednesday that sponsor OneMain has reversed course and decided to remain on Elliott Sadler’s No. 1 Chevrolet. “When we found out this was going to happen, my wife and I just cried that whole morning tears of joy knowing there’s so much stability,” Sadler, 41, told NBC Sports. OneMain, which initially had informed JRM nearly two months ago of its plan to leave NASCAR, will sponsor Sadler for 20 races in each of the next two seasons, JRM general manager Kelley Earnhardt Miller said.

  • Tennis’ fun new showcase teases a dream doubles pairing

    Sitting onstage at the St. Regis Hotel on Wednesday were arguably five of the top seven men’s players ever to hit a tennis ball. Too bad only one of those guys, Rafael Nadal, actually will compete in the US Open, which kicks off Monday in Flushing. The other four – Rod Laver, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe and Roger Federer – will sit it out, three of them long retired and Federer still rehabbing a knee injury. Federer will miss his first Open since 1999. The fabulous five were at a press conference to announce the birth of a new team competition that pits Europe vs. The World — similar to golf’s Ryder Cup. It’s being called the Laver Cup after the legendary Australian lefty, the last man to win the

  • The Miz, Daniel Bryan Have Heated Confrontation on WWE 'Talking Smack'

Miz praised himself for rarely getting injured and always being fit to compete. He also suggested

    Jimmy Vesey said that he picked the Rangers because it "jumped out" to him how much the team wanted him and "needed to have" him in the lineup. He said that the Rangers organization believes in him and based on conversations felt like it would be the right fit. Vesey said that he doesn't feel any added pressure based on everything that surrounded his decision and said that the organization doesn't expect him to come in and "be a savior." He said "I'm a piece they wanted to add and hopefully I can help the New York Rangers win hockey games." Vesey said that there are no guarantees but he feels that he can "plug in right away" with the Rangers and be on the opening night roster. Jeff Gorton said

  • Son of a Miami legend vying to be backup to quarterback Brad Kaaya

    The Miami walk-on quarterback who wears No. 14 on his orange jersey is not some anonymous teenager taking reps every now and then. Neither is the young man competing with him to back up one of the nation’s top signal-callers. With the Hurricanes’ opener against FAMU a week from Saturday, Vincent Testaverde – the son of 1986 UM Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde – is vying to be the No. 2 man behind standout Brad Kaaya. And so is Malik Rosier – the scholarship quarterback who led UM to the miracle win at Duke last season. “I was of course nervous at first,’’ Testaverde said Tuesday after practice, then added that when he was told late last week he “was going to be competing for the No. 2 spot,

  • Danny Thompson honors father with land speed record at Bonneville

    Danny Thompson, son of racing legend Micky Thompson, crushed the national land speed record for a naturally aspirated fuel streamliner during Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah earlier this month. But he did so much more than just drive an AA/FS vehicle faster than anyone before him. For Thompson, this record connects him with his famous, speed-hungry father who was murdered in 1988. To become a member of the famed Bonneville 400 miles per hour club a racer must complete a five-mile down run one day and a five-mile return run the next. The average speed of the two runs is used to calculate if a racer makes it into the exclusive club. Danny's record makes him the 12th racer to break

  • New details on the Lesnar-Jericho backstage fight, kissing included

    The Wrestling Observer was first to report some wild details on a backstage confrontation between Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho at the Barclays Center last night (Aug. 21, 2016) at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, namely the fact that there even was one. Initial word was that Jericho took umbrage with the finish to the main event, where Randy Orton was badly busted open (see the grisly evidence here), and Lesnar wasn’t a fan of Jericho making a stink about it. That led to a physical altercation between the two that was bad enough that both Triple H and Vince McMahon had to get involved to break it up.

  • AL East Notes: Yankees lineup, Mark Trumbo

    The New York Yankees are finding themselves making a drastic shift in the way they build an offense. Their power is coming from the right side of the plate. Carlos Beltran is gone, and the roles of Brian McCann and Mark Teixeira have been diminished. All of the young kids (Tyler Austin, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez) that have been promoted are right-handed. And they are seeing the impact of shifts against hitters. All of it is leading to a massive change in their lineup structure and offensive output. More news from around the American League East: He only hits home runs (38 of them to be exact), but the Orioles are complaining that Mark Trumbo’s offense is a one-trick pony. When the acquired

  • For Oregon Ducks football, with Brady Hoke Comes Hope

    Brady Hoke has been all across the country, putting his magic touch on lackluster defenses. Hoke has a knack for fielding teams that are strong at the point of attack and are known for fundamentally sound tackling. As Hoke takes over as Oregon’s new defensive coordinator for the demoted Don Pellum, Oregon fans hope for a better defensive output from a team who ranked 5th in the nation in scoring but a dismal 117th in points allowed. Hoke brings change to an Oregon defense that has struggled to make plays throughout the 2015 season. One key element to watch in the upcoming games is how well Oregon’s front seven adapt to Hoke’s 4-3 scheme, a transition from the 3-4 set used in 2015. The defensive
