  • 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. During an extra segment after the show, Rodgers went into even more detail on what he likes about Manning "I like watching

  • Cubs' Joe Maddon stands by his players, decisions

    Cubs fans might be upset or even furious after witnessing a late comeback wasted in a 5-4 loss to the rival White Sox. But Cubs manager Joe Maddon stood by his players and even took exception as to why he pulled slugger Anthony Rizzo for pinch-runner Matt Szczur in the top of the ninth inning. “To score the run, hopefully the winning run,” Maddon replied after Rizzo was pulled after moving to second on a single by Willson Contreras. Szczur was left stranded as Jason Heyward struck out, and the Cubs went on to win on a single by Tyler Saladino off left-hander Mike Montgomery. “If the ball is hit to the outfielder, and Rizzo cannot score, that’s when you pretty much get upset with yourself,” Rizzo

  • Chris Bosh and the Heat are in another debate over his health

    Chris Bosh saw a second straight season end early due to blood clots last February, but the story of his 2015-16 hardly ended there. 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.

  • Pirates fan makes a perfect barehanded grab

    On Sunday at PNC Park, one Pittsburgh Pirates fan performed a public service for everyone watching. On the 3-2 pitch, catcher Elias Diaz hit the ball foul, and it careened toward the stands on the first base side. It sailed over the Phillies’ dugout, and it was headed right for a Pirates fan sitting with his son.

  • Jeremy Lin talks Knicks tenure, Melo and Courtney Lee

    Jeremy Lin will forever be a staple in the heart of New York City and Madison Square Garden. And while he's tried to develop a reputation as a dependable NBA player following the outbreak of Linsanity for the last several years, similar questions are resurfacing as Lin goes through the motions with the Big Apple media as the newest member of the Brooklyn Nets. "I was really, really sad. I was sad the way everything went down, 'cause nothing happened the way I thought it was going to. I had wished that they had offered me a contract just in the beginning," Lin told Steve Serby of the New York Post in a recent Q&A of his Knickerbocker ending. Of course, the Knicks opted not to offer Lin a contract.

  • NASCAR executive on Indy: ‘We’ve got to put on the racing people want to see’

    NASCAR’s Steve O’Donnell said Monday on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio that series officials would like to “see more fans in the stands” at Indianapolis Motor Speedway but stated that “we’ve got to put on the racing people want to see.’’ Kyle Busch dominated Sunday’s Brickyard 400, leading 149 of 170 laps. That came a day after he won the Xfinity race there, leading all 20 laps in his heat and 62 of the 63 laps in the main event. While attendance figures are not announced, The Indianapolis Star reported that Sunday’s crowd “might not have topped 50,000’’ at a track that has more than 250,000 permanent seats.

  • Chevrolet hits it out of the park with the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport

    ATLANTA—Well folks, they've done it. With the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport, Chevrolet may well have built the best Corvette ever. That was our take-home message after a day spent driving the car at Atlanta Motorsports Park and on the sinuous nearby mountain roads. The concept behind the car is simple but effective: carry over all the suspension and aerodynamic goodies from the range-topping Z06 without the overheating problems that have beset that model's supercharged 650hp (484kW) engine. Oh, and it's a lot cheaper than the Z06 too—just $66,445 for the coupe. First, a little history: the Grand Sport name was first attached to the Corvette way back in 1962. The father of the Corvette, Zora Arkus-Duntov,

  • Dion Waiters gets a lot less money than he was expecting with the Heat

    Dion Waiters has agreed to a one-year deal with the Heat worth $2.9 million, The Associated Press reported, which is, like, a lot less than he was hoping for. In November it was reported he had interest in signing with the 76ers and figured he could get "a [very lucrative] contract." Then when free agency began at the beginning of the month, the Oklahoman‘s Anthony Slater reported that Waiters could get a $12 million to $16 million per year contract. It's likely why Waiters never accepted the qualifying offer from the Thunder that would have guaranteed him $6.8 million for this season.

  • Mike Piazza, Ken Griffey, Jr. inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame

    COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) Baseball’s Hall of Fame has again revamped its veterans’ committees, attempting to increase consideration for more contemporary players, managers, umpires and executives. Under the change announced Saturday by the Hall’s board of directors, there will be separate committees for Today’s Game (1988-2016), Modern Baseball (1970-87), Golden Days (1950-69) and Early Baseball (1871-1949). Today’s Game and Modern Baseball will vote twice every five years, Golden Days once every five years and Early Baseball once every 10 years. “There are twice as many players in the Hall of Fame who debuted before 1950 as compared to afterward, and yet there are nearly double the eligible candidates after 1950 than prior,” Hall chair Jane Forbes Clark said in a statement.

"I think realistically, the bullpen is the area we can get someone," Alderson said, according to Anthony DiComo.

  • Raikkonen secures Driver of the Day honors in Hungary

    Kimi Raikkonen has captured the vote for F1’s Driver of the Day award, following his efforts to come from 14th to sixth place in Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix, and with the fastest lap of the race in the process. The Ferrari driver missed Q3 for the first time all season but atoned nicely in the race at a track where passing is usually at a premium. Raikkonen’s battle with Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen was one of the race highlights, the Dutchman defending aggressively – perhaps too much so – against Raikkonen’s advances. But with no penalty assessed and no warning issued, Verstappen ended ahead in the battle for fifth. “I think it was very questionable, but it’s not my decision to decide,”

Ahead of the event’s official opening, Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany released this statement: “We join the Nebraska and Michigan State communities in sending our thoughts and prayers to the families, teammates, coaches, administrators and friends who have been impacted by the tragic loss of Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler. While we are deeply saddened by their untimely loss,

  • David Ortiz Once Broke Up Fight Between Manny Ramirez, Curt Schilling

    David Ortiz has done his fair share of antagonizing over the years, but he also knows how to play the role of peacemaker. Just ask Curt Schilling. Schilling was one of many former Boston Red Sox players interviewed for Boston Magazine’s recent oral history on Ortiz as he enters the final months of his major league career. The piece is chock full of great stories, but one of the highlights is Schilling’s tale about the time Big Papi stopped an ugly confrontation between Schilling and Manny Ramirez. Take it away, Curt: “He broke up a fight between me and Manny once. I think it was in (2005). Manny had the day off. Seth McClung (then with the Tampa Bay Rays) was pitching against us and he threw

After Dwyane Wade left the Miami Heat, though, they decided to match. In an interview with the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Ira Winderman, Johnson sounded as shocked as everybody else about how his free agency played out: "I threw up a couple of times when I heard the number go out there. I was in shock. I even lost a little bit of weight, because just the anxiety of going through that whole process and not knowing where I was going to be," the Miami Heat guard said Monday during a team-sponsored water-safety event at

Simply put, Ranieri says everything’s going to be fine. From Sky Sports: “Last season we lost Esteban Cambiasso and everybody was crying,” Ranieri said, after his side drew 1-1 with Celtic in a pre-season friendly. “Now we are crying because we lost Kante. Don’t worry. Football in Leicester will keep going.” Kante was probably the most important part of Leicester’s title capture last season, but Ranieri’s system was also critical. The follow-up
