  • Arrested for DUI, Browns’ Alvin Bailey told police he was drinking on the team plane

    An NFL player getting nabbed for DUI is hardly newsworthy these days, and so normally we wouldn’t be writing about how Cleveland Browns starting right guard Alvin Bailey was arrested for that very charge early Monday morning. What’s so different about Bailey’s arrest is that he told the arresting officers in North Royalton, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb, that he had been drinking on the team plane as the Browns flew back from Sunday’s game in Miami. In 2007, the NFL banned alcohol from all team activities, including flights to and from games. Bailey’s admission to police that he had consumed several whiskeys on the team plane home from Miami would be a violation of of league and team rules. “We are

  • Retiring Teixeira not shy about bat flip and yelling 'blown save' after HR vs. Jays

    Thanks to a five-run ninth inning, the Yankees beat the Blue Jays on Monday night, 7-5. There were fireworks on several occasions. Early on, they came in the form of two different benches-clearing brushes between the teams thanks to exchanging some pitchers thrown at batters (seriously, guys, didn't we learn anything from Jose?). Later, the Yankees' bats did the talking, starting with Mark Teixeira's colossal clout to tie the game off Blue Jays reliever Jason Grilli: The normally-reserved Teixeira came with a huge bat flip and even yelled "blown save!" in the direction of Grilli. Here's Teixeira discussing after the game: He's definitely correct that the Blue Jays are a team that enjoys their

  • Nick Saban on Les Miles: Wins national title and two SEC titles and doesn’t last a season?

    The firing of Les Miles by LSU on Sunday afternoon caught a number of people by surprise. Perhaps it shouldn’t have considering the drama surrounding Miles’ job situation toward the end of the 2015 season, but none the less the Tigers have moved on and named Ed Orgeron its interim head coach for the remainder of the 2016 season. On Monday, the coach Miles was hired to replace at LSU reacted to the news, and he certainly seemed puzzled by it. “A man wins a national championship and two SEC titles, and he doesn’t make it through the season?” That was the response of one Nick Saban, head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. “Les Miles is one of the most respected colleagues in terms of rivalry we’ve

  • Darren Sproles' TD from Wentz set to Sonic the Hedgehog music

Now, Biden has tweeted at Wentz after the Eagles' rookie led the Birds to a 3-0 start. Philadelphia is a tad giddy. Biden's tweet read: You may have missed it, but when Biden was at the Eagles' week 1 game against the Browns, the Veep told head coach Doug Pederson he'd like to suit up and play. "I wish I was good enough to be out there in a different role," Biden said. "You want to put some pads on?" Pederson asks. "I can go get some." "I did that through college," Biden responds. "I dreamed about it." Biden comes in about 50 seconds into the below video.

  • Marlins 2B Dee Gordon:

    Matthew Cerrone | Snapchat | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | About Me Bartolo Colon allowed seven runs Monday night as the Marlins beat the Mets, 7-3, during Miami's first game since the death of their 24-year-old ace Jose Fernandez. The Mets entered the game needing to need as many of the six games left in the season as they fight to outlast the Giants and Cardinals for the NL Wild Card. And yet, given what the Marlins experienced during the last 48 hours, I can easily accept the Mets losing in Miami last night. It felt like the right thing to do... The night was full of emotions, and both sides did an admirable job fighting through... "He respected the game. That's why he played it like he

  • Four teams that would make sense for Jacob Trouba

    The big NHL news over the weekend came when the agent for Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba announced on Saturday night that his client, still unsigned as a restricted free agent, is requesting a trade from the team so he can put himself into a better position to fully develop as a player. The Jets responded by saying that they are working to resolve the matter but are going to operate with the team’s best long-term interests in mind, and that they still view Trouba as a long-term piece of their team. As we have seen over the past year, trade requests don’t always turn into a trade, even in situations where the player-team relationship seemed beyond repair as was the case with Jonathan Drouin and the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Anaheim Ducks: The Ducks would be an interesting spot because it’s not like they need an upgrade on their blue line, because it’s already a pretty good group.

It’s what Schumacher does for fun – and profit, for that matter – that we’re addressing here: If you watched the NHRA drag racing coverage from Gateway Motorsports Park just east of St. Louis this past weekend, the man in the bright red shirt, standing there at the starting line, was downright ever-present during the Top Fuel and Funny Car eliminations.

A slow April may have been cause for concern early, but Cleveland eventually soared. The team went just 10-11 during the season’s first month, but then never posted a sub-.500 month the rest of the way.

  • Details emerge on Jose Fernandez's last night

    Jose Fernandez was upset following an argument with his girlfriend and summoned two friends for the late-night boating expedition that ended in the death of the 24-year-old Miami Marlins pitcher and his companions, according to reports that detailed the final evening of his life. Eddy Rivero and Emilio Macias were killed along with Fernandez when a 32-foot fishing boat – which authorities said Monday was owned by Fernandez – crashed into a jetty sometime before 3 a.m. Sunday morning as it traveled southbound back toward Miami Beach. Fernandez's friends joined him only after Marlins teammates turned down his offer to go on the late-night trip on the water.

Chelsea gave up three first half goals, the first in calamitous fashion as Gary Cahill was inexplicably caught on the ball to let Alexis Sanchez in to score, and Conte was seething in his post-match press conference about the level of defending and the fact that Chelsea has now conceded at least twice in each of their last four games. The Daily Mail reports that the Italian manager has seen enough from both Cahill and struggling right back Branislav Ivanovic and he will “phase them out” in the coming weeks at Stamford Bridge.
