  • Tim Tebow answered Stephen A. Smith's dumb question with a riveting inspirational speech

    Hate on Tim Tebow all you want, but there’s no denying he’s one of the most motivational guys in sports — period. On Tuesday he appeared with Stephen A. Smith on First Take and dropped the best speech you’ll hear all week. When he was criticized for taking a long shot at making an MLB roster, Tebow dropped the hammer.

  • Why the Cubs benched their $184M outfielder for World Series Game 1

    When the Chicago Cubs announced their lineup for Game 1 of the World Series, one big, expensive name was missing: Jason Heyward, the outfielder whom they signed to a $184 million, eight-year contract this past offseason. Instead, Joe Maddon put journeyman Chris Coghlan in right field. Two things: Yes, Maddon calls Jason Heyward “Jeyward” and Maddon said things could easily be different in Game 2, which makes sense considering how much he tinkers with the Cubs’ lineup.

  • Romo's Back Issues More Serious Than Expected?

    When Tony Romo fractured a vertebra in his back in the preseason game against the Seahawks on August 25th, it was widely reported that he'd be out for 6-10 weeks. Tomorrow, it will be exactly nine weeks since the injury, and Tony Romo hasn't even practiced yet. The Vegas oddsmakers currently see a return against the Browns in Week 9 as the most likely scenario for Romo, but they are also offering 2-1 odds that Romo won't start at all this year. So is there something going on with Romo's back that the Cowboys are not telling us? When mulling Cowboys-related medical issues I like to exchange thoughts with a friend of mine who's also a Cowboys fan and is a medical professional in real life. And

  • Tigers not likely to deal Kinsler

    While Detroit Tigers GM Al Avila recently told local reporters he will be looking to cut payroll and shake up his roster before next season, Detroit Free Press reporter Anthony Fenech believes the Tigers have no interest in trading 2B Ian Kinsler and RHP Justin Verlander. "We want to get younger," Avila said two weeks ago. "We want to get leaner. We want to run the organization without having to go over our means." Kinsler, 34, who hit .288 with 28 home runs and 83 RBIs this season, will earn just $21 million over the next two years and be eligible for free agency after the 2018 season.

  • The Spurs offense showed a new wrinkle against the Warriors

    The Spurs took advantage of the Warriors' weaknesses to the tune of a 29 point demolition on opening night. The Warriors lack proven depth, and the Spurs bench outscored the Warriors bench 54-16 with Jonathon Simmons, Manu Ginobili, and Patty Mills all in double figures. Another area of concern for Golden State is size and rim protection, and the Spurs out-rebounded them 55 to 35 and 21 to eight on the offensive glass. David Lee and Dewayne Dedmon came up with a combined seven offensive boards as reserves to add to LaMarcus Aldridge's eight. The degree of domination was surprising, but it's not shocking that the Spurs won in these specific facets of the game. What was a great sign for Spurs fans

    Brown was left home from the Giants’ game against the Los Angeles Rams in London in Week 7 and was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list by the NFL, granting the team a roster spot to replace him. Giants co-owner John Mara explained (via ESPN) why the team released Brown now and not when the allegations of abuse first surfaced, or after the shocking documents in which Brown admitted he abused his wife were released by the King County (Wash.) Sheriff’s Office.

  • How Aly Raisman and Simone Biles used their 'imperfect' bodies to win 11 Olympic medals

    NEW YORK - Aly Raisman reached out her fist and unfolded her fingers, holding her hand out perfectly flat. "Gymnasts are supposed to look like this," she said, "like stick figures; having a butt is bad in gymnastics." She turned to Simone Biles, her U.S. teammate sitting next to her, and lets out a laugh. "It's true!" the 19 year-old said, giggling. Biles and Raisman aren't like regular gymnasts. They're the best two in the world, for a start. Raisman, the U.S. gymnastics team captain in 2016, added to her three medal-haul from London 2012 with a gold and two silvers in Rio. She was only bettered by Biles, the teenage phenomenon who walked away from her debut Olympics with four gold medals and

A lack of acceptance of gay players has made headlines in the NFL in recent years, and it remains a taboo subject in the European game. The first player to come out in England was Justin Fashanu in 1990.

  • Snap totals point to which tight end the Steelers could release if Ladarius Green is activated

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have a predicament on their hands when the team comes out of the bye week and starts preparing for the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9. Some might think the predicament is whether Ladarius Green is ready to be activated to the 53-man roster yet, a task they have 21 days to officially do, but the real question is not if, but when, Green is activated, who becomes the odd man out at the tight end position? The current tight end depth chart reads as follows (in no particular order): Jesse James Xavier Grimble David Johnson There is no debate about Jesse James. The 2015 5th round draft pick has been the main man at the tight end position, routinely playing more than 90-percent of

  • Welcome to the Tim Tebow baseball and PR Experience

    In the last seven days, I've talked to a handful of Mets insiders, none of whom believe Tim Tebow will be with the team next spring in Port St. Lucie. I've heard several different reasons behind their thinking. But, in the end, everyone agreed that -- if he's still with the organization -- he's more likely to show up in St. Lucie when minor-league camp starts, as opposed to when big leaguers arrive in February. This is good news ... if you ask me. It's nothing against Tebow, who has every right to pursue a career in baseball. It's just, the Mets have real goals, and real business at hand, as they try to right their ship and get back to the World Series. I expect Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah

  • Bills Promise More Retaliation If Patriots Run Through Pregame Drills Again

    There seems to be a bit of miscommunication going on this week at the Buffalo Bills’ facility. The Bills host the New England Patriots on Sunday, a team they shut out on the road last month. The bad blood between the AFC East rivals began before that game even started, with Patriots rookies Jacoby Brissett and Malcolm Mitchell brawling with several Bills defensive backs during pregame warmups. According to the Bills players involved, Brissett and Mitchell started the altercation by running through a Buffalo drill rather than around it. As they jogged back down the field, safety Robert Blanton retaliated by shoving Brissett, and things escalated from there. Blanton called Brissett’s and Mitchell’s
