  • Aaron Rodgers reveals the true meaning of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call

    Thanks to Aaron Rodgers, the mystery of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call has finally been solved. For years, football fans everywhere have tried to solve the riddle of the 'Omaha' call, only to come up empty. The frustration has finally come to an end though because Rodgers spilled the beans during a recent appearance on the HBO show Any Given Wednesday. During the interview, host Bill Simmons asked Rodgers who he tries to emulate at the quarterback position. The Packers quarterback mentioned that he'll occasionally watch film on guys like Manning, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady. During an extra segment after the show, Rodgers went into even more detail on what he likes about Manning "I like watching

  • 24-year-old undrafted Miami Heat player says he threw up 'a couple of times' after signing a $50 million contract this summer

    Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson was one of several free agents to sign eye-popping, monster deals this offseason. Johnson, 24, entered the summer as a restricted free agent — meaning Miami could match any offer he received — after going undrafted in 2014. In an attempt to lure him away from the Heat, the Brooklyn Nets offered Johnson a whopping four-year, $50 million contract.

The GM said that other teams have been asking for top-tier prospects from the Mets, but he is unwilling to deal them, according to Laura Albanese.

  • Morning Report: Dana White says BJ Penn should have been 'one of the best to ever live'

    There is a reason "Motivated B.J. Penn" is an MMA meme. Penn is a legendary figure in MMA, as revered for what he accomplished in MMA as for what what he didn't. Penn is one of only two, two-division champions in UFC history and his capture of the welterweight title from then pound-for-pound kingpin Matt Hughes is one of the most iconic moments in the promotion's history. His mercurial nature led him to vacate the welterweight belt in search of bigger game. He did eventually return to the UFC and claim the lightweight title in his career defining run. Penn's forays outside of the lightweight division means he is still one of MMA's foremost cited cases of "what could have been." Take Dana White,

  • NFC Exec: If Steelers players failing drug tests were Patriots, "there would be multiple league investigations"

    The Pittsburgh Steelers could be without star running back Le’Veon Bell for the first four weeks of the season and they are without #2 wide receiver Martavis Bryant for the full year. Bryant emerged as one of the most physically gifted receivers in recent years, but his career will be placed on hold during his suspension. This comes on the heels of the since-redacted Al Jazeera report, which the league is using as reason to investigate Steelers linebacker James Harrison. One NFL team executive thinks the league response would be very different if these Steelers were members of the Patriots. "If what's happening in Pittsburgh was happening in New England, there would be multiple league investigations,"

  • Wheeler mat not return until August

    Latest update Mets RHP Zack Wheeler could return from Tommy John surgery in late August, "though that's a little bit speculative," Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters Monday, July 25. Previous reports Mets manager Terry Collins said July 23 that Wheeler will first throw live batting practice, then start a rehab assignment roughly 10 days later. The 26-year-old Wheeler, who had Tommy John surgery in March, 2015, was shut down for roughly a week last month after being diagnosed with nerve irritation in his right elbow. "Some guys go fast, some guys go slow," Wheeler told reporters when visiting teammates last week in Miami. "It's frustrating. But, at the same time, I guess it's for a reason.

    Just like the rest of the basketball world, Tyler Johnson thought he was definitely going to the Brooklyn Nets when he agreed to a four-year, $50 million offer sheet with them. After Dwyane Wade left the Miami Heat, though, they decided to match. In an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Ira Winderman, Johnson sounded as shocked as everybody else about how his free agency played out: "I threw up a couple of times when I heard the number go out there. I was in shock. I even lost a little bit of weight, because just the anxiety of going through that whole process and not knowing where I was going to be," the Miami Heat guard said Monday during a team-sponsored water-safety event at

Yeah, Ronaldo is friends with the MMA star, and showed no ill form (and no brace of any kind) in several posed photos with McGregor. Although admittedly, McGregor’s IG game is a bit better: The Irish fighter posted a photo of himself sunning in his briefs with the caption, “I’m gonna get him on the Forbes list by next year.

  • Kyle Busch scores second consecutive win at Indianapolis

    Kyle Busch never gave the field a chance in the 23rd running of the Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Busch started on the pole and led 149 of the 170-lap race to score his second straight win at the Brickyard. A restart with two laps to go and then two overtime attempts couldn’t deny Busch, who drove away his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth and Jimmie Johnson. Denny Hamlin finished fourth with Kyle Larson rounding out the top five. It was a dominating and historical performance as no driver had previously swept the weekend by winning both pole positions and race in the Xfinity and Sprint Cup Series. Sunday’s victory was the fourth of the 2016 season for Busch

  • Julianna Peña puts ‘Harmless Holly’ Holm on blast, says Amanda Nunes could be ducking her

    With the ever-changing rotation of contenders coming and going in the UFC’s bantamweight division, one name has emerged as a top choice to face current champion Amanda Nunes. That’s 26-year-old Julianna Peña, who scored her biggest win to date taking out Cat Zingano at UFC 200. Since winning The Ultimate Fighter reality show, she’s gone 4-0 in the UFC. And she’s ready for her title shot. In fact, she’s to the point where it feels a little absurd for her to have to lobby for it. While making an appearance on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour, she said she believes her resume speaks for itself — particularly with the last remaining fighter in the top five who is coming off a victory.

  • Curran: A laughable double standard in Manning and Brady cases

    Reading the NFL’s breathless release Monday afternoon that the investigation of St. Peyton came back clean as a whistle and that, hell, ol’ Pey-Pey couldn’t have been more accommodating to the investigators (wink, nudge), the words of Elvis Costello occurred to me. Oh, I used to be disgusted, but now I try to be amused … Nobody in their right mind ever believed the NFL would get taint all over Manning post-retirement. Having just spent 18 months dragging Tom Brady’s through the streets, they were going to let him loose and hitch up Manning? Please. But you figured they’d just slip a note to one of their many media friendlies that the investigation into Huge Head’s alleged HGH use was concluded

  • On the Chapman trade and its potential ramifications

    The Yankees have traded Aroldis Chapman, who will soon be on his way to Chicago, ready to use that flame-throwing left arm to try to help propel the Cubs to a World Series title. In return, the Yankees will receive a quartet of players -- three prospects and Adam Warren. If that announcement also officially indicates whether the Yankees are in buy or sell mode, it will be the least interesting part of this deal. The Yankees probably will make another trade -- at least they should considering the state of their farm system and their place in the standings. But these are kind of humdrum affairs. The Chapman trade and the bounty the Yankees received have wider-ranging influences. By getting the

The other noteworthy element of the Samoan ex-model’s first outing on the main roster was her opponent. Her opponent, a woman Michael Cole identified during their brief match as Britt Baker, received no introduction. She also didn’t get any offense in - generally being mauled by her larger opponent and then subjected to not one, but two applications of Jax’s finisher, a Leg Drop. Looks like the rumors the “new
