  • Tom Wilhelmsen kicks all of the Pirates out of his bar after they refuse to pay tab

    Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory. For the Seattle Mariners, for so many years, that player was Felix Hernandez, who would put the team on his back and try and drag them kicking and screaming to a 1-0 victory. Saying Happy Felix Day doesn’t ring necessarily as loudly and as enthusiastically as it once used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still love seeing the King take the mound, but he is a different King this year. And from the get go of the game, it looked like he was going to be a bad king who needs to be overthrown. The Pirates jumped out to a quick and tidy three run lead in the

  • 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.

  • Rory McIlroy rips 345-yard bomb during long drive contest and still loses

    An early disappointment for Rory McIlroy at the 2016 PGA Championship, but thankfully for him, it was all in good fun. Arriving on the tee ahead of the competition’s annual long drive contest early on Tuesday, Rory smashed a 345 drive that looked a virtual certainty to win the contest. Indeed, he was leading for most of the day. But then a dramatic twist to the story. More than six hours later, South Korean player An Byeong Hun snuck a drive 347 yards — just two yards past McIlroy’s — to snatch the prize from Rory’s hands in the final moments. Tough break. Rory spoke to ESPN about it afterwards: “I’m a little bit gutted,” McIlroy said with a smile. “That would have been a mini victory this week

While Bosh and the Miami Heat largely kept their disagreements out of the press, reports indicated that player and team were at odds over when he should return to the court. Bosh apparently wanted to play in the postseason (where the Heat took the Toronto Raptors to seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals), but the team did not want to risk his health.

Gay, in a Q&A with Blake Ellington of Sactown Royalty: You mentioned people are wondering if you are going to be here next season. I imagine you are like most of the guys in the league and try not to pay attention to that stuff, but do you pay attention to trade rumors and does it bother you? I mean it’s been pretty loud as of late so it’s hard not to pay attention to it.

After Chapman’s awkward introductory news conference, Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein insisted Chapman understands what the Cubs expect of him after an offseason domestic violence incident. When the Cubs announced the trade with the New York Yankees on Monday, the team released a statement from Chairman Tom Ricketts saying they were aware of his 29-game suspension to begin the season under Major League Baseball’s new domestic violence policy.

    Seven years ago the Rio de Janeiro government promised to clean up the water before the 2016 Olympics. Not only did they fail to clean it up -- it has actually gotten worse. According to the New York Times, recent tests by government and independent scientists have found the city's waters to be full of diarrhea-causing rotaviruses and drug-resistant "super bacteria," among other pathogens. This is the same water in which Olympians will sail, windsurf and -- yes -- swim starting on Aug. 5. "Foreign athletes will literally be swimming in human crap, and they risk getting sick from all those microorganisms," local pediatrician Dr. Daniel Becker told the Times.

  • NFC Exec: If Steelers players failing drug tests were Patriots, "there would be multiple league investigations"

    The Pittsburgh Steelers could be without star running back Le’Veon Bell for the first four weeks of the season and they are without #2 wide receiver Martavis Bryant for the full year. Bryant emerged as one of the most physically gifted receivers in recent years, but his career will be placed on hold during his suspension. This comes on the heels of the since-redacted Al Jazeera report, which the league is using as reason to investigate Steelers linebacker James Harrison. One NFL team executive thinks the league response would be very different if these Steelers were members of the Patriots. "If what's happening in Pittsburgh was happening in New England, there would be multiple league investigations,"

Sale used a knife to cut up his uniform as well as the uniforms of some other players, protesting the club’s decision to wear them. The White Sox suspended Sale five games “for violating team rules, for insubordination, and for destroying team equipment.” Sale spoke about the incident for the first time, as MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports. The lefty apologized to fans who came to see him pitch and said he regrets “not being there for my guys,” referring to the bullpen, which had to cover

  • Jose Reyes used until he broke, giving shot to Mets’ hottest hitter

    Jose Reyes was never indestructible, even when he was in his prime. So it seemed like the Mets might be asking for trouble by playing the 33-year-old every game after calling him up from the minors this month. On Tuesday, in his last at-bat of the Mets’ 3-2 loss to St. Louis in the first game of a doubleheader at Citi Field, Reyes suffered a Grade 1 left intercostal strain. The injury left Reyes unavailable for the second game, a 3-2 victory, and figures to sideline him for at least a few days, according to manager Terry Collins. Wilmer Flores started at third in the nightcap against lefty Jaime Garcia and had three hits. Collins anticipates that Flores will fill in for Reyes. “He’s done a great

  • Grade the Signing: Marreese Speights Inks a Minimum Deal with Clippers

    When the Clippers lost Cole Aldrich early in free agency, it wasn't much of a surprise.  He had a stellar season and a contract above the MLE, which was the most the Clippers could have offered, was pretty likely--especially when Timofey Mozgov got an absurd 4-year, $64 million deal, setting the market for centers at an unprecedented high level. The hope for the Clippers, after using their exceptions to shore up the small forward position with Wesley Johnson and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, was that they'd be successful in bargain bin hunting at other positions.  This summer more than ever, finding quality role players at the minimum would be sifting through the table scraps, and it was a very real
