  • Vikings quarterback severed tendon putting foot through window

    Around this time we see reports from training camp regarding injuries sustained on the field, but Vikings backup quarterback Taylor Heinicke found a way to get injured off of it. Heinicke showed up to camp wearing a cast, and rolling around on a scooter, which prompted questions about how he sustained the injury. The second-year undrafted quarterback explained how he hurt himself, and he admitted he was embarrassed by how it went down.

  • Answer a Kevin Durant question? Don’t make Russell Westbrook laugh

    Nice try, but Russell Westbrook’s lips remain sealed. Russell Westbrook has FINALLY broken his silence on Kevin Durant’s decision to leave the Oklahoma City Thunder and join the Golden State Warriors! Well … kind of. Hey, a loud laugh in response to the question, “How you feel about Durant, man?” is noise! That technically means the silence is broken … even if Russ didn’t actually say anything, and if we don’t know for sure whether that laugh means anything more than, “I am 100 percent not going to answer that question.” It counts!

  • Spieth (67) peppered with questions about ruling

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – Jordan Spieth stepped onto the podium next to the Baltusrol clubhouse Friday prepared to discuss the 3-under 67 that put him back in the mix at this PGA Championship. Instead, he was peppered with questions about a ruling he received on the seventh hole, for which there was no penalty. The issue arose Spieth lost his tee shot on 7 way right. His ball settled in a puddle below the level of a gravel cart path. After consulting with rules official Brad Gregory and several attempts to drop, Spieth was allowed to place his ball on the path, taking relief from casual water. (He opted to play the ball off the path instead of dropping into the tall grass to the left, where he would

  • Amar’e Stoudemire: ‘My heart was in two places – Phoenix and New York. I just went where I was wanted’

    Before signing with the Knicks to retire, Amar’e Stoudemire reportedly wanted to sign with the Suns this year and last. He essentially confirmed both accounts. Stoudemire, via Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic: “The last two years, we made phone calls to Phoenix but I wasn’t getting any positive response,” Stoudemire told azcentral sports on Thursday. “That would’ve been the perfect way to go out. I didn’t want to beg Phoenix. My heart was in two places – Phoenix and New York. I just went where I was wanted.” According to the report, Stoudemire wanted to play for Phoenix next season — not just retire as a Sun. If that’s the case, I see why the team passed. The Suns have 15 players (the regular-season

  • Chip Ganassi: The real reason Target is leaving IndyCar

    LEXINGTON, Ohio – Team owner Chip Ganassi scoffed Friday at the notion Target is leaving his Verizon IndyCar Series team at season’s end as a result of something happening – or not happening – within the sport. In other words, IndyCar’s low-but-improving television ratings didn’t drive Target out, he said. “It doesn’t say anything about IndyCar racing,” Ganassi said during a break in practice at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. “It doesn’t say anything about (motor sports). It doesn’t say anything about TV ratings. “It’s a business decision that Target made. I don’t think there’s any secret message, hidden agenda or ulterior motive. It’s not a referendum. There’s no sub-story here. “They been

    Conor McGregor took to Twitter to announce his retirement, inciting a wave of speculation that the Diaz rematch slated for July 9 will be his last, or even worse, cancelled. Well, UFC President Dana White just confirmed the latter. The UFC featherweight champion moved to the welterweight category just to fight Diaz, but suffered a stunning loss due to a second round submission. Despite the defeat, the fighter seemed eager to get back into the ring and said on social media, "I stormed in and put it all on the line. I took a shot and missed, I will never apologize for taking a shot. Nate I will see you again." But that won’t be happening. White appeared on ESPN’s SportCenter and said that McGregor

  • 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.

  • This video of Lionel Messi in training is just glorious (Luis Suárez nutmeg included)

    Lionel Messi is awesome. Not only did he cut his vacation short so he could rejoin the Barcelona squad a week earlier to train with his teammates in England and play every friendly match in preseason, he is also using the training sessions  to show just how amazing he is. These are just 140 seconds of greatness. Messi is laughing in the Rondos as he makes his teammates look like fools, he's dribbling Mathieu like he's not even there, and he's even nutmegging his good friend Luis Suárez just because why not. He's also scoring goals on little posts, because every goalpost is big enough for Messi. Just wish Messi was not blonde. But hey, you can't always get what you want. Still, Messi, you're awesome.

Minnesota Timberwolves center and reigning Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns is apparently trying to test his own version of this game. Honestly, they should just turn the camp into a full-on experiment to see how many kids Towns can take on.

  • Jordan Spieth Takes Cart Path Drop, Entertains Gallery with Comedy Hour

    Jordan Spieth got into some trouble when his drive on the par-4 7th hole missed the fairway and went into a puddle on the cart path during the second round of the PGA Championship. From there he had to figure out how to make a correct drop from casual water on a cart path, and he and a rules official had a lengthy conversation that was broadcast on TNT. The dialogue between Spieth and the official was fascinating—it's amazing how much goes into a simple drop—and frustrating, because it might be things like this that casual golf fan don't have time for, or care for.

  • Cubs fan will donate to domestic-violence charity for each Aroldis Chapman save

    The acquisition of bazooka-armed reliever Aroldis Chapman wasn’t exactly greeted with glee by Chicago Cubs fans because of the pitcher’s offseason domestic violence incident. While Cubs fans are desperate for their team to finally end its 108-year-old streak without a World Series title, some aren’t desperate enough that they feel comfortable adding a player to the roster who was accused of domestic violence before prosecutors ultimately decided not to file charges. Lifelong Cubs fan Caitlin Swieca decided to do something positive to help herself cope with the disappointment she felt in her beloved team.

  • Camp observations, Day 2: New Orleans Saints offense has to go underneath

    WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- The Saints' once again had a solid day on defense during Friday's practice. There were a handful of instances where the quarterbacks were forced to check down after seeing their deeper options were limited, and another few times when quarterback Drew Brees was forced to throw the ball away after seeing his targets disappear. Although it's early and it will take more than two practices to change the fortunes, coach Sean Payton is pleased with the early signs. "From an offensive standpoint, there's a patient element to being productive. You hear that term kind of taking what the defense gives you," Payton said. "The point being is that it's an element to where the
