  • 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.

  • Julian Green will not play with Bayern II this season

    Julian Green is only 21 years old, but it seems like he's been around FC Bayern Munich forever.  He was touted as one of the up-and-coming talents from the Bayern youth system but despite getting a call up to the US national team for Brazil 2014 (and scoring a highlight-reel goal), he has yet to manage a breakthrough at club-level. After a disastrous loan spell at Hamburger SV in the 2013/14 season, he returned to Bayern last season, only to spend the entire season in the fourth division with Bayern II.  Although he was considered one of the key performers for the little Bayern, Green revealed to kicker (according to Fussball-Vorort) that "it has been agreed" that he won't be playing for the

  • Jeremy Lin talks Knicks tenure, Melo and Courtney Lee

    Jeremy Lin will forever be a staple in the heart of New York City and Madison Square Garden. And while he's tried to develop a reputation as a dependable NBA player following the outbreak of Linsanity for the last several years, similar questions are resurfacing as Lin goes through the motions with the Big Apple media as the newest member of the Brooklyn Nets. "I was really, really sad. I was sad the way everything went down, 'cause nothing happened the way I thought it was going to. I had wished that they had offered me a contract just in the beginning," Lin told Steve Serby of the New York Post in a recent Q&A of his Knickerbocker ending. Of course, the Knicks opted not to offer Lin a contract.

  • Guanabara Bay water still overrun by sewage as Rio Olympics loom

    RIO DE JANEIRO – Luiz Goldfeld was excited in 2009 when he heard the Olympics were coming to Rio de Janeiro and the sailing events would take place on Guanabara Bay. Goldfeld, now 48, loves sports, especially sailing, and was eager to watch some of the events from his houseboat at a picturesque marina on the bay. With the Brazilian economy booming and opportunities seeming endless, he thought the arrival of the Games would spark a long-needed push to clean up a bay that is as unpleasant to the nose as it is picturesque to the eye. “It smelled like (expletive) because it was full of (expletive),” Goldfeld told USA TODAY Sports. “I thought this was a chance to do something for the legacy.

  • NFL determines Peyton Manning never used HGH

    The NFL this morning wrapped up their seven-month investigation into claims made by Al Jazeera that former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning took human growth hormone (HGH) during his time with the Colts in 2011. The NFL "found no credible evidence" that Maning ever received or took HGH or other banned performance enhancing substances. The league press release also emphasised the fact that both Peyton and his wife Ashley fully cooperated with the investigation, which included interviews and the Mannings giving the investigators access into all records sought. It's not hard to miss the message here: Peyton Manning fully cooperated with the investigation and was cleared, a contrast to Tom Brady,

  • Blues GM: We may take ‘half a step back,’ while young veterans grow into leadership roles

    After a few early exits from the Stanley Cup playoffs, the St. Louis Blues were finally able to make a long run. Granted, they didn’t win the Stanley Cup or make it to the final, but they did manage to reach the Western Conference Final. Unfortunately for the Blues (and a lot of other teams), the NHL’s salary cap number didn’t increase very much and it forced the organization to part ways with a number of key veterans. Gone are captain David Backes, winger Troy Brouwer and goalie Brian Elliott. There could be even more change between now and the start of the year, as Kevin Shattenkirk could find himself elsewhere. Those key departures mean that the Blues will need some of their younger players

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.

    Let's just get this out of the way up front: Auburn basketball won't finish with the best recruiting class in the country. Duke has pulled in the top class two of the last three years and Coach K hasn't signed anyone for 2017 yet. Kentucky hasn't finished lower than No. 2 in the recruiting rankings since Billy Gillispie was the coach in 2008. John Calipari hasn't landed anyone for his next class yet, either. None of that changes the fact that what Bruce Pearl is doing on the recruiting trail right now is pretty incredible. After locking in four-star forward Chuma Okeke from Fairburn, Ga. this weekend, 247 Sports now has Auburn with the No. 1 class for 2017.
