  • Olympic gold medal swimmer thanks fan who spotted suspicious mole

    One fan saw something and said something, leading to a very grateful response from an Olympic swimmer.  Australian gold medalist Mack Horton posted on social media thanking an anonymous fan for contacting his team doctor about a suspicious mole on his chest. "Shout out to the person that emailed the swim team doctor and told me to get my mole checked out," he wrote. "Good call. Very good call." In the photo, a bandage covers Horton's chest, but he did not specify whether the mole was found to be malignant or not.  According to Cancer Council Australia, two in three Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they're 70, almost all due to exposure to the sun. Horton, who is 20, won gold

  • Verlander deal? Astros all-in? Why MLB hot stove could be trade-heavy

    There is a growing sense among executives that the trade market is going to be active this offseason fueled by these factors: 1. Arguably the worst free-agent starting-pitching class ever is upon us. Rich Hill is the best starter available. He is a terrific craftsman. He also is 37 in March, has not made it through a full season as a starter since 2007, and no team can simply wave off concerns about blisters because he relies so much on his curveball, which creates intense friction on his fingers against the ball’s seams. And the class goes down-Hill from there. Thus, in the old game of supply-and-demand, if teams have anything from a good-to-great pitcher they are willing to trade, the time

  • NFL Puts Giants’ Josh Brown on Paid Suspension Over Domestic Abuse

    The NFL has put New York Giants kicker Josh Brown on the commissioner’s exempt list as league investigators go through a trove of newly released documents in which the player admitted to abusing his then-wife Molly Brown. On Friday afternoon Adolpho Birch, NFL senior vice president of Labor Policy & League Affairs, sent a letter to Brown informing him that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had placed him on the except list on a "limited and temporary basis" while the league reviews the documents released by the King County (Washington) Police Department. Brown will be paid his salary "pursuant to the terms" of his contract, and he may appeal the decision within three days of receiving the letter.

  • Report: When Kings hired George Karl, Rudy Gay greeted him with, ‘Welcome to basketball hell’

    The Kings were 18-34 when they hired George Karl in February 2015. They hadn’t made the playoffs in eight years. Sacramento fired coach Michael Malone earlier in the season, because – after a better start than anyone could’ve reasonably expected – the team slumped while its best player was out sick. The Kings gave the job to Tyrone Corbin and promised him the rest of the season, though they obviously reneged by hiring Karl. Owner Vivek Ranadivé declared he wanted a jazz director. The front office was chaotic, and general manager Pete D’Alessandro and special advisor Chris Mullin would soon depart. DeMarcus Cousins stewed. Rudy Gay had been in Sacramento barely a year, but he had the franchised

  • The Jimmy Vesey show leads Rangers over Capitals

    Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin had the big highlight early in the game on Saturday night, but it was New York Rangers rookie Jimmy Vesey that ended up stealing the show. Vesey scored a pair of goals for the Rangers — the first multi-goal game of his career —  to help lead his team to a 4-2 win in Washington. Even though he had never played a game in the NHL before this season, Vesey was still one of the most sought after free agents this summer after he completed his college career at Harvard. He eventually signed an entry level deal with the Rangers, and given how much attention his free agency saga generated it seemed hard to believe that he could ever match the hype. Especially

If any team has needed a 48-hour break to clear its mind and perhaps even allow the pressure to shift to the other side, it’s this Dodgers squad.

  • Taylor Swift ready to get into a F1 frame of mind Saturday at COTA

    If you’re a fan of both Formula One and singer Taylor Swift, you should be at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on Saturday. Swift will perform her only scheduled concert of 2016 after Saturday’s action concludes on the racetrack. To get her fans even more excited about the concert, Swift – who is apparently already in Austin for rehearsals – took to Instagram earlier this week and posted several videos. The first clip was a short scene showing Swift playing an acoustic guitar. The second clip, which she captioned “Band practice,” showed Swift and her band rocking out on her 2012 hit, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And then the third Instagram clip shows an exuberant Swift

  • Gretzky surprised by support from Jets fans heading into Heritage Classic alumni game

    It’s Heritage Classic weekend in the NHL, which means that there will be an alumni game between the Jets and Oilers on Saturday afternoon. The rivalry between these two teams has come down a few notches over the years (mainly because the Jets moved to Phoenix), but that doesn’t diminish how intense it used to be. It was so intense that Wayne Gretzky, who will be dressing for the Oilers alum, was surprised when he was cheered during Friday’s practice at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg. “I was kind of Public Enemy No. 1 back in the day,” Gretzky said, per NHL.com. “But, that is the way it should be. I was with the other team. When I was in Winnipeg, the people were great to me and they always

  • Barclays’ helpless ice forcing Isles to scope out Citi Field lot

    WASHINGTON — The commute might be a pain. The obstructed views and imperfect sightlines may be inconveniences. But the Barclays Center ice … the ice that continues to be sub-standard despite everything progressive ownership can do … it is the ice that will ultimately render this Brooklyn arena ill-suited to be the home of the Islanders for the long term. That is why majority owner Jon Ledecky and his group have the obligation to seek an arena of their own for this NHL stepchild, as they have over the last few months in conducting due diligence on alternate sites, and most prominently, we’re told, the Citi Field parking lot. Indeed, Slap Shots has learned Islanders ownership has held meetings

    Former U.S. women’s national team star Lauren Holiday had surgery on Thursday to remove a brain tumor. She was diagnosed with a benign, operable brain tumor in June while carrying her child with New Orleans Pelicans player Jrue Holiday, and doctors induced birth early to expedite surgery which was slated for Thursday. Many friends and fans sent well-wishes to Holiday on social media as she prepared to undergo surgery: At their game on Wednesday, USWNT players wore wristbands that said LH12, for Holiday’s initials and the number she wore on her jersey. Teammates still call her “Cheney,” which is her maiden name: There have been no updates from Holiday or her husband since the surgery and information

  • With Tuukka Rask banged up, Bruins recall Zane McIntyre on emergency basis

    The Boston Bruins recalled goalie Zane McIntyre on an emergency basis on Saturday morning. The call up was necessary because it doesn’t look like starter Tuukka Rask will be able to suit up against the Montreal Canadiens tonight. Rask missed Friday’s practice with what head coach Claude Julien described as “general body soreness,” but it might be a little more serious than that if he’s forced to miss games. The Bruins selected McIntyre in the sixth-round of the 2010 Entry Draft. He’s never suited up in an NHL game before. The 24-year-old turned pro last year, after spending three years at the University of North Dakota. He had a 14-8-7 record with a 2.68 goals-against-average and a .898 save

At least that’s the opinion of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, who has the best record of any current active coach, and who speaks out so rarely that any time he describes something in detail, it is instant catnip for the media. It may not be a fair review of the Surface, but unfortunately for Microsoft, it has become a major story this week.

Several teams, including Minnesota, have inquired about his availability in the past few weeks and gotten the impression Cleveland is ready to talk, according to several league sources. The Cavs won’t salary-dump Shump for nothing, but given their tax situation, cutting payroll by a few million promises exponential savings. Shumpert is more valuable than Jones,

  • The tragic story of the champion Jewish fencer who fought for Hitler

    She represented Germany at the 1928 Amsterdam Summer Olympics, bringing home a gold medal. Four years later, she competed in the Los Angeles Games. Two hours before her final matches, she learned that her boyfriend had died in a military training accident. She finished fifth. Mayer stayed in California and attended college for international law, hoping to perhaps become a diplomat for her country one day. In 1933, Hitler and the Nazi Party took power in Germany, and quickly set to work stripping away the rights of Jewish citizens — including Mayer, whose father was Jewish. Mayer’s membership in her hometown fencing club was revoked, and it became clear she could not return to Germany. The former

Kanaan was slated to speak last Thursday, Oct. 13, to the Boys and Girls Club of Wayne County, Indiana. Among topics he was slated to talk about in the fundraising event were life lessons and the importance of keeping your word/promise. But Kanaan also had to take part in a Verizon IndyCar Series Firestone tire test at the same time at Gateway Motorsports Park, nearly 300 miles away from the B&GC event in Richmond, Indiana. Even though he agreed to speak at the club meeting several months ago, Kanaan could easily have simply cancelled. But he
