  • Did NHL teams suck fun out of 3-on-3 OT? (Trending Topics)

    A little more than a year ago, the NHL announced that it had officially adopted a 3-on-3 overtime as a means of juicing goal-scoring in the league and avoiding the shootout to as great an extent as possible. At the time, we had little understanding of what the NHL looked like at 3-on-3. From 2007 through the end of 2014-15, all NHL teams combined had played a grand combined total of just 87 minutes in that strength situation.

    Dwyane Wade performs on-stage at the Bud Light Stage Moment at Lollapalooza at Grant Park on July 28, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Three weeks after agreeing to terms on one of the more stunning deals of the summer, the Chicago Bulls will introduce Dwyane Wade at a Friday afternoon press conference. The All-Star shooting guard got to town a bit early, though — early enough to check out a crosstown interleague baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox, and to make a special appearance at the opening of Lollapalooza, the massive music festival held each summer in Chicago’s Grant Park.

  • Patriots’ Handling Of Deflategate Reportedly Turned Entire NFL Against Them

    To say the whole Deflategate situation hasn’t been kind to the New England Patriots would be a massive understatement. After the NFL shockingly handed Tom Brady a four-game suspension back in May 2015, the Patriots fought tooth and nail to try to get that ruling overturned and bring justice to their quarterback. That effort obviously failed, but in a recent article for SI.com, columnist Greg Bedard revealed that New England’s steadfast support of Brady did not go over well with the rest of the league. From Bedard’s column: “Even if Patriots owner Robert Kraft wanted to seek retribution and lead an ouster of (NFL commissioner Roger) Goodell… it’s not going to happen. NFL owners agreed to the rules

    One of the weirdest things about Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder for the Golden State Warriors is that he’s not committed to his new club past the 2016-17 season. Durant signed a two-year deal with Golden State that includes a player option on the second season, and no one believes he’ll actually accept it. LeBron James has signed similar deals with the Cleveland Cavaliers in each of the past two offseasons, and he figures to do the same thing in upcoming weeks in advance of getting his own record-shattering contract next summer.

While Cubs fans are desperate for their team to finally end its 108-year-old streak without a World Series title, some aren’t desperate enough that they feel comfortable adding a player to the roster who was accused of domestic violence before prosecutors ultimately decided not to file charges. Lifelong Cubs fan Caitlin Swieca decided to do something positive to help herself cope with the disappointment she felt in her beloved team.

  • NFL conditionally reinstates Dolphins' Dion Jordan

    The NFL has decided to conditionally reinstate Miami Dolphins’ pass-rusher Dion Jordan, who was suspended for a year under the league’s substance abuse policy after submitting a diluted test sample. According to the announcement from the NFL, Jordan can join the Dolphins at training camp, allowed to participate in “meetings, conditioning work and similar activities.” He must also secure treatment in the Miami area, and after he’s done that he will be able to play in preseason games.
