  • World-Record Ferrari Attempt Falls Short

    The hoped-for Guinness record for the number of Ferraris in a parade that the organizers of the 2016 Finali Mondiali at Daytona International Speedway fell a bit short – 155 Ferraris short, to be precise. At the Ferrari Race Day at Silverstone in 2012, Ferrari F1 driver Felipe Massa led a parade of 964 Ferraris, upping the world record set in Japan of 490 cars, which upped the record set at Silverstone in 2007 of 385 cars. The parade at Daytona managed 809 Ferraris, which, while not a record, is still a bunch of Ferraris.

  • Bryan Price likely to use Raisel Iglesias, Tony Cingrani, and Michael Lorenzen in closer’s role

    C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Reds manager Bryan Price is likely going to use a trio of pitchers in the closer’s role: Raisel Iglesias, Tony Cingrani, and Michael Lorenzen. At RedsFest on Saturday, Price said: I’d say right now that we have a series of guys that I’m comfortable with in the ninth inning and that would include (Raisel) Iglesias, (Tony) Cingrani and (Michael Lorenzen). Should we stay with this format – which I intend to do – all three of those guys and maybe more could have opportunities in save situations. At this point in time, there’s no defined closer. There are multiple options and I’d like to stick with the philosophy that we’re going to have our

  • Three things we learned Sunday: Russell Westbrook has entered the Jordan zone

    Here is what you need to know from around the NBA Sunday, in case you were busy dodging Santas on the ski slopes… 1) Russell Westbrook enters Jordan territory with fifth straight triple-double — and Thunder keep winning. “”I am truly a fan of his… when I watch him play, I see a lot of resemblance of his passion for the game of basketball [to] the way I played the game of basketball.” That was Michael Jordan last month describing Russell Westbrook as he introduced Westbrook for the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame. Now Westbrook is entering The Jordan Zone — Sunday night he recorded his fifth straight triple-double with 28 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists. The last guy to record five-straight triple-doubles?

    COMING BACK: Though a deal is not yet complete, multiple reports on Saturday suggested that the Los Angeles Dodgers were on the verge of re-signing left-hander Rich Hill. MLB Network’s Peter Gammons was the first to report that at least one rival executive believed that Hill and the Dodgers were in agreement on a three-year deal worth over $40 million. FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman added that while no deal is confirmed, the known competition for Hill had reportedly moved on, leaving the door open for a deal to be completed soon. Rich Hill seems pumped up at the thought of returning to the Dodgers.

  • Rosberg: Hamilton’s late-season form ‘the best Lewis I’ve ever seen’

    Nico Rosberg believes that Lewis Hamilton produced some of the best performances of his career towards the end of the 2016 Formula 1 season when the Briton had nothing to lose in the championship fight. Rosberg clinched his maiden F1 drivers’ championship by five points in Abu Dhabi last Sunday, defeating Hamilton for the first time during their time as teammates. Rosberg closed out the season with four straight second place finishes, with Hamilton’s run of victories in the same period not being enough to catch up in the standings. Speaking in a video produced by Mercedes after his championship win, Rosberg said that he felt the most pressure after his final win of the season in Japan, the result that meant he could wrap up the title without taking another victory.

  • Steve Kerr admits to pot use in the wake of his debilitating, painful back surgeries

    Steve Kerr’s crippling back pain has led the Golden State Warriors coach, who was born and raised in California and works in the Bay Area, to try pot in an attempt to cure the pain that two different surgeries could not tramp down. Not because Steve Kerr is some Woody Allen-styled spaz at the party, knocking over the good stuff and ruining it for the whole living room, but because most are beyond worrying about the potential spoils and dangers of cannabis. Kerr inhaled recently, as he likely did as a youth growing up in the 1980s or NBA pro in the 1990s, and it didn’t work for him.

  • Houston booster rants against Tom Herman, calls him 'Judas,' 'Tom Vermin'

    Whenever a coach leaves a school for another school, there are always going to be people left behind at the old program who aren't happy about it. It's just a fact of the coaching business. What isn't so common, however, is that one of those people feeling scorned is a major booster of the school who decides to get #MadOnline and post about it on their Facebook page. Meet Houston booster Darryl Schroeder, who has feelings -- and a Facebook page -- ensured that, for a brief moment in time, the two became one for the world to see. At first I was like, "Oh man, he went the Judas" route, but then Darryl really brought the hammer down at the end calling him "Tom Vermin." I understand why Schroeder,

  • Pardew saves his job, says Palace owners “don’t know a lot about football”

    While some may advise that keeping a low profile would best suit Alan Pardew right now, Crystal Palace’s embattled manager is of a totally different mindset. Following Saturday’s 3-0 victory over Southampton, in which Pardew’s side saved his job (for the time being), the 55-year-old Eagles boss and former player chose the first bright moment, Palace’s first Premier League win since Sept. 24, to hit out at the club’s new American owners with a scathing assessment of the footballing prowess, or perhaps lack thereof — quotes from the Guardian: “The chairman got a bit edgy this week, as you’d expect. We have a lot of serious investors at the club who perhaps don’t know a lot about football so the
