    Vancouver Canucks netminder Ryan Miller still has hard feelings over how he has been portrayed in the debate over the size of goaltending equipment. Last season, TSN’s Ray Ferraro pointed out how Miller and Carey Price wear the same size pant even though Price is much heavier than the 168-pound Miller.

  • Fifth USGP win draws Hamilton level with Schumacher’s record

    Lewis Hamilton drew level with Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher for the most United States Grand Prix victories by taking his fifth win on Sunday in Austin, Texas. He’s the third driver overall to do so, with Ayrton Senna having also won five times in the U.S. – albeit only two of them in the USGP title in Phoenix. He also won three Detroit Grands Prix from 1986 through 1988. Hamilton won his first grand prix on American soil back in 2007 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and had won three of the four races held at the Circuit of The Americas since 2012 heading into the Austin weekend. A perfect start saw Hamilton forge an early lead over Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Mercedes teammate Nico

  • Byron Scott thinks he'd still be Laker coach had Jim Buss done 'a great job'

    Byron Scott is a different type of cat. The former Nets, New Orleans, Cavaliers and Lakers coach does not have the shiniest track record in spite of making two NBA Finals as lead coach and winning the NBA’s Coach of the Year award in 2008, and he turned his legacy into a complete hash of things during that disastrous two year run with Los Angeles between 2014-16. Charged with making life prettier for the team’s local television viewers during the final two seasons of Kobe Bryant’s career while developing some semblance of a youth movement on the side, Scott failed miserably with both tasks.

  • Hopes end of advancing in Sprint Cup Chase for Chase Elliott

    With advancement to the Round of 8 on the line, Chase Elliott’s task Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway was plain and simple: He needed to win. That’s it. Coming into the race last on the Chase grid and 62 points behind series leader Jimmie Johnson in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, there was no other way Elliott could move on in the playoffs unless he ended up in victory lane. As it turned out though, the rookie Sprint Cup driver wound up with a no-win situation, finishing 12th, falling short of the checkered flag and being eliminated from advancing to the Round of 8. “We just came up short,” Elliott said. “We had a really good car again. You try to make stuff happen, and I felt like we were pretty

    When P.K. Subban shows up at your event, you expect to be entertained. And he basically always delivers. His trend of delighting Nashville Predators fans continued on Sunday, as he made a glorious appearance as the Tennessee Titans’ “12th Man.” If you close your eyes and picture a scene, you probably wouldn’t be that far off; it still doesn’t make this any less fantastic. (Even if the Titans eventually dropped a 34-26 loss to the Colts.)

    The Mets want to bring back Yoenis Cespedes, "but they probably wouldn't chase him if he got an enormous long-term deal elsewhere," given his age and the streaky nature of his production, according to weekend report from ESPN.com's Buster Olney. According to multiple reports, Cespedes is expected to opt out of his three-year contract and become a free agent. There is mutual interest in having him return to the Mets. However, "There is no urgency," a source told Olney, who says the Mets are open to effectively updating his current deal with another opt-out clause. Cespedes has until three days after the end of the World Series to decide whether to opt out of his current contract with the Mets, ESPN.com's

A day later, he’s still upset. “We’re trying to figure out everything right now,” Zimmer said Monday, via Chris Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “This is a gut check day. . . . We’re going to change some things up this week.” After a showing that prompted Zimmer to call his offensive line “soft,” he offered up this biting critique that should force every player to engage in soul searching: “I have faith in this football team. But faith is belief without proof, and I have no proof yet.” The defense has given Zimmer plenty of proof, but defense alone isn’t enough. As to the offense, Zimmer

    The New York Giants may have turned their season around the past two weeks with two hard-fought victories, but they are still on the bottom looking up in the suddenly competitive NFC East. The frontrunning Dallas Cowboys (5-1) remained alone in first place after a bye week; the Philadelphia Eagles stunned the previously-undefeated Minnesota Vikings, 21-10, at home to improve to 4-2 and move to second place; and the Washington Redskins fell in the final seconds to the Lions in Detroit, 20-17, to fall to 4-3 on the year. With a little over half the season remaining, only a few division games have been played. The Eagles, who play Dallas next week, have only played one game in the division thus far.

  • NFL morning after: The decline of Colin Kaepernick

    Colin Kaepernick is the NFL’s most significant player off the field, a player whose simple act of declining to stand during the national anthem has led to wide-ranging discussions across America about race, police brutality, free speech and the role of sport in society. That has been the subject of thousands of commentaries. But it’s not the subject of this commentary. Instead, I want to talk about why I also consider Kaepernick the most fascinating NFL player off the field. And the reason for that is simple: He has rapidly declined from a very good quarterback to a terrible quarterback, at an age when most quarterbacks are still getting better. It was less than four years ago that Kaepernick

    France Football released the 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or award given to the world’s best player.

Alexis Sanchez was Arsenal’s second-leading scorer as the Gunners finished second in the Premier League, and the South American attacker scored three goals as Chile won its second-straight Copa America, this one on American soil. It’s baffling that he’s not on the list.

Jim Harbaugh is more chill than Brian Kelly. In an interview with Mike White of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jeter explained why he reopened his recruiting last week and ultimately settled on the Wolverines. “(Harbaugh) doesn’t act like he’s important,” Jeter said. “He’s real down to earth and humble. He’s easy to talk to. Talking to Brian Kelly wasn’t fun. It wasn’t cool. You have to make an appointment just to go to his office. Coach Harbaugh has an open-door policy.

    AUSTIN, Texas — The race is on in Formula One. Not just to the checkered flag, but to see which team can marshall the best technology. In its 70th year, the preeminent auto-racing circuit has become a tech arms race. At the U.S. Grand Prix here this past weekend, the Internet of Things, big data, virtual reality, machine learning, 3-D printing, flash storage, predictive analytics and design play integral roles in the success (or failure) of the 22 drivers that compete in 21 races globally each year. The slightest advancement, or tweak, can mean the difference between first place and 10th place — often the difference of one second. And that's key considering that running an F1 team can cost upwards
