  • A Tour pro charged for clubs? And can't pay?

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – Rich Beem opened with a 1-under 69 on Thursday at the PGA Championship, his first under-par round on the PGA Tour since 2012. As good as that moment was for the 45-year-old, his week didn’t start that well. Beem, who won the 2002 PGA Championship, rarely plays on Tour and spends his time now working as an analyst for Sky Sports. As he readied for his start at Baltusrol he reached out to Matt Rollins, the Tour rep for Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), to order a set of the company’s clubs. He was charged $2,800. That’s when things became a little uncomfortable. PGA Championship: Full-field scores | Live blog: Day 1 | Photo gallery “He gave me a bill, he tried to run my credit card

  • Antonio Brown will accept Brandon Marshall's bet, but he can't 'internet it'

    Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall threw down a super-expensive gauntlet recently, challenging Steelers’ Antonio Brown to a car bet over which dominant AFC receiver would have more receiving yards. Marshall, per a video he posted on his Instagram page, offered up his new Porsche for Brown’s Rolls Royce, the one he just drove to training camp, winner take all. “He don’t really wanna do that,” Brown said, per TMZ. “He just wants some PR. He too old to be doing that. “The RR is about $100k up [from the value of the Porsche]. If he really serious, CALL ME … I’ll gladly accept. Don’t Internet it.” We have to agree with Brown. No publicity-seeking challenges. No “interneting it.” Marshall can’t be

  • Ex-NBA player hits Twitter, begs teams to give him one more chance

    Von Wafer of the Boston Celtics reacts after scoring against the Miami Heat on Feb. 13, 2011. It’s been four years since Von Wafer last played in the NBA, and, from the sound of it, that’s quite long enough for him, thanks. The 31-year-old shooting guard, a former McDonald’s All-American and second-round draft pick out of Florida State, last saw an NBA court with the Orlando Magic in May of 2012.

  • Martina Hingis loses another Olympic doubles partner

    Martina Hingis‘ Olympic return is off to a rough start, and the Games are still nine days away. Hingis, the five-time Grand Slam singles champion who is set to go 20 years between Olympic appearances, has lost her slated doubles and mixed doubles partners on consecutive days. Hingis is not playing singles in Rio. Belinda Bencic became the fourth female tennis player ranked in the top 20, and the second Swiss player of either gender in as many days, to withdraw from the Olympics on Wednesday. Bencic, a 19-year-old ranked No. 16, is behind in training following a wrist injury suffered at Wimbledon last month, according to her social media.

  • Report: Clippers exploring leaving Lakers at Staples Center, getting their own arena

    The Clippers don’t just play second fiddle to the Lakers in Los Angeles. They play second fiddle to the Lakers in their own arena. Unless the Clippers want to move from the NBA’s second-biggest market, the former isn’t changing. The Latter? Kevin Arnovitz of ESPN: The Clippers want to escape the Lakers’ shadow. Leaving the Staples Center wouldn’t turn the Clippers into L.A.’s team, but it’d give them a new avenue for attention — and revenue. Of course, if the Clippers stay in the Staples Center, they’ll want the best terms possible. Leaking interest in a new arena only helps their bargaining position.

  • Huge If True: Will Canucks take on Evander Kane?

    Last week in this space, we discussed whether the Vancouver Canucks would be able to trade for a scoring winger. At the time, though, the idea that Evander Kane would be the target was a little farfetched. Kane was arrested late last week for allegedly harassing three women, and potentially choking and pulling the hair of one of them.

  • Carmelo Anthony predicts Knicks-Bulls on Christmas or opening night

    Carmelo Anthony said the Knicks should have gotten a Christmas game last year. In hindsight, the NBA reportedly agreed. So, Anthony expects New York to get a marquee matchup — against the Bulls — on either Christmas or opening night. Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal: The storylines are overflowing. The Knicks added Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah — two former Bulls — to join Anthony, who strongly considered Chicago in his last free agency. The Bulls answered with a couple big names: Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. They’ll join Jimmy Butler, whose stature is only growing — just like Kristaps Porzingis in New York. Those are plenty of attention-drawing players, and the league will want to capitalize,

    At the end of each conference run-through, I take a look at how I perceive the conference's balance of power heading into the season. This is in no way based on schedules, so they are not predictions. This is just how I would rank the teams after writing thousands of words about each of them. When I finished all of the Group of Five conferences, I compiled a full mid-major power rankings list. Now we're into the power conferences; here's the ACC, and here's the Pac-12.

The Englishman and former fighter was asked about countryman Kell Brook’s longshot attempt to defeat middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on Sept. 10 at London’s O2 Arena. “I understand why Kell took the fight — one’s for the payday,” Hatton said. “Two, he won the title, you want routine defenses to put pennies in the bank to help yourself and family in the future. He’s done that now. Now, he wants to test himself against the best.” Hatton said that Brook, the unbeaten International Boxing Federation welterweight champion,

Johnson, along with Stenson and Danny Willett, made up this year’s version of the famed major winners grouping, the trio of calendar-year winners that the PGA Championship traditionally pairs together in the first two rounds.

    It seems like we can't go one week without Didier Drogba doing something cool and bringing bad old memories. Well, brace yourself because this moment will bring back all the nostalgia. Not only did Didi score in the MLS All-Star game, he did it against one of Chelsea's biggest foes, Arsenal. And he did it against his old teammate and Chelsea legend, Petr Cech. Here's a look at the goal: Obviously not the most beautiful goal he's ever scored in his illustrious career, but it had to be an enjoyable one for him personally. There's no doubt he'll never let Cech live down that moment. The former Blues goalkeeper even admitted as much earlier this week, saying Drogba would taunt him for a year if he

  • Detroit Tigers add much-needed component of physical pain to 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' contest

    For too long, the game “Rock, Paper, Scissors” has been relegated to the realm of the trivial, used more often to determine mundane obligations like who’s going to walk to the store to buy more beer than meaningful outcomes like who’s going to get wailed over the head with an empty water jug. Luckily, the Detroit Tigers have set out to right this wrong: From Justin Verlander’s Instagram comes evidence of the Tigers’ high-stakes version of “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” In the above video, second baseman Ian Kinsler throws scissors while shortstop Jose Iglesias throws paper, and because scissors cut paper, Kinsler gets to wallop Iglesias on the head with the water jug. Kinsler, of course, is an excellent

  • Andrea Bargnani is heading to Spain, and this is probably the end

    Free-agent big man Andrea Bargnani will return to Europe, signing a two-year deal with Saski Baskonia of Spain’s ACB — widely acknowledged as the second-best professional hoops league in the world — that, more than likely, spells the end of the NBA road for the former No. 1 overall draft pick. The 7-footer entered the NBA in 2006 after spending the first four years of his professional career in his native Italy, showcasing a sharpshooting touch from beyond the 3-point arc that helped Benetton Treviso win the 2006 Serie A title and earned him designation as the Euroleague’s 2005-06 Rising Star, an honor given to the top 22-and-under performer in the continental competition. Bargnani acquitted himself pretty admirably in his first few years in Toronto, offering scoring punch and an outside shooting threat on teams led by Chris Bosh and the T.J. Ford/Jose Calderon point guard combination that hung around the middle of the Eastern Conference pack.

    After Thursday’s game, the Twins announced that utility infielder Eduardo Nunez was traded to the San Francisco Giants for lefthanded reliever Adalberto Mejia. In a corresponding move, Jorge Polanco was recalled from Triple-A Rochester. Nunez has had a breakout season this year, hitting .296/.325/.439 with a career-high 12 home runs and 26 stolen bases, also a career high. Despite eclipsing his previous high in home runs by seven, Nunez’s isolated power was still a below-average .144 thanks to fewer doubles relative to his at-bats, but his speed will play in the enormous AT&T Park. With incumbent third baseman Matt Duffy still on the disabled list, Nunez likely slots in there with Conor Gillaspie
