  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Rory McIlroy flexes for the crowd after taking a huge lead in PGA long drive contest

    Rory McIlroy's muscles and workout regimen have oddly become the topic of much conversation in recent weeks. There was that Johnny Miller digression at The Open, wherein the lead NBC analyst spent consecutive days on the weekend at Troon saying Rory's time in the gym and obsession with his muscles and "tight shirts" had negatively impacted his ability to win major championships. On Monday morning, a sports psychologist on Golf Channel's Morning Drive program also gave Rory low mental marks, partly because of all of Rory's shirtless poses on Instagram and "maybe he's more interested in working out than playing golf." Rory no doubt hears these critiques. So on Tuesday at the PGA Championship, where

  • 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

  • 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,

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.

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.
