  • Video: Hope Solo breaks down after being cut from U.S. Soccer

    Hope Solo’s emotional reaction to a six-month suspension and her U.S. Soccer contract termination was recorded for all to see. Solo was part of a documentary series called “Keeping Score,” capturing the Olympic journey of some members of the U.S. women’s soccer team. That meant crews were still on hand when Solo heard about her termination, reports Dana Jacobson of CBS Sports Network.  The longtime U.S. goalkeeper let out her anger to her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens. Solo has announced she won’t play again this year for her club team, the Seattle Reign. “Mentally I am not there yet,” she explained in a statement.  The documentary footage released Tuesday shows a distraught Hope

  • 'I Feel Bad For Whoever's Next'

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Travis Browne has a warning for all the female bantamweights who think the path to the 135-pound title is free and clear while ex-champion Ronda Rousey is on temporary hiatus. "Hapa" told ESPN that "Rowdy" is suffering no lasting effects from her violent knockout loss to Holly Holm last November, and once she's ready to step back inside the Octagon -- somewhere toward the earlier part of next year -- the first person fed to the Olympic judoka will be toast. Including her own upset loss, the women's bantamweight title changed hands three times over the past 10 months. Holm coughed up the strap when Miesha Tate strangled her into submission at UFC 196, a similar fate for "Cupcake" when she ran into Amanda Nunes last July.

Twenty-eight of the 30 big-league teams were there to at least see what Tebow had to offer. Some, like the Boston Red Sox, left and quickly announced they’d likely be passing.

    The Mets seem to be in the process of turning their season around. They've gone 8-2 over their last 10 games, and on Tuesday pulled ahead of the Marlins for second in the National League East. That's a good thing, because it changes the tone about every little act and event happening around the team. Take a tweet like this from Noah Syndergaard: The Mets are winning, so it's funny, if odd. Were the Mets losing? Woo boy, you'd have all kinds of debates about whether Syndergaard were taking things seriously -- and why is he getting after the fans, anyway? Thankfully, we can take this as the joke it was intended to be. And hey, even if the Mets were losing, it makes sense for a feller named Noah

    Lindsey Vonn is a downhill skier. A very good one. A gold medalist and a four-time overall winner of alpine skiing's World Cup. She's world-famous. People know her. But the Denver Broncos apparently don't really know what she does. Vonn moved from Minnesota to Vail, Colorado when she was 12 years old and has been a Broncos fan ever since. This offseason, she hung out with some of the Broncos (she and Von Miller rehabbed their knees together back in 2013) and it became clear to her that a lot of Broncos mostly don't understand her job.

    Any arrests, transfers, flunk-outs or NCAA issues you have read about are blown out of proportion. Alabama has recovered from both to reach the College Football Playoff – and won it all last season – but significant emotional distress was visited upon the Tide faithful by the program’s first back-to-back losses to Ole Miss. If it happens a third straight time, heaven help the houndstooth wearers.

  • Cesc Fabregas has been offered to Milan

    Milan’s dying transfer window is about to get a shot in the arm. Cesc Fabregas has been offered to the Rossonero and an answer on their decision can be expected at 3pm. Milan have had a dead transfer window. I mean, they are undergoing a takeover - but still. The squad hasn’t been bolstered and coach Montella has to make do with scraps. He’s doing fairly well with those scraps, but it won’t last and he’ll get the blame if it all goes wrong. That might change if Milan bring in the former Barcelona man from Chelsea. There’s no word on a fee, but Chelsea could be kind here considering Fabregas might not have a part to play at Stamford Bridge this year. It’s a good move for Milan, especially if the

  • Ex-Nuggets coach recalls NBA's anthem controversy with iffy hindsight

    Reactions to Colin Kaepernick have brought Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf back into the public conversation about sports and activism. The NFL and sports world in general are currently in the midst of a controversy surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has decided not to stand during the national anthem in protest of a country that “oppresses black people and people of color.” Kaepernick’s political stand has proven divisive, receiving criticism from various corners of the sport and exposing many of the retrograde racial views and practices that the protest is intended to reveal. It’s a complicated issue that is unlikely to go away until Kaepernick chooses (or is made) to stop sitting.

  • Three questions with Second City Hockey

    Last in our preview of the Central Division is arguably the most successful team of the cap era: the Chicago Blackhawks. Last year they lost in the first round, but that’s been normal for them after winning a Stanley Cup. They’re still going to be a favourite for the Cup this year, especially after picking up Brian Campbell on the cheap. Here’s Stachel Price from Second City Hockey to answer three questions for us. 1. A lot has been made of the Blackhawks' lack of depth on D over the last few seasons. Even when they won the Cup in 2015, they needed an otherworldly Conn Smythe-winning performance from Duncan Keith to survive. Does the cheap signing of Brian Campbell solidify things on defence

  • ESPN: Koulibaly concedes defeat in Chelsea saga

    According to ESPN’s sources, Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly "has given up hope" on becoming a Chelsea player this summer. The 25-year-old had been the club's primary defensive transfer target this summer. Chelsea have been willing to go as high as £50 million for Koulibaly, but Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis, after raising his asking price repeatedly, had settled on wanting nothing less than £60 million. With the Blues refusing to meet De Laurentiis' latest outrageous evaluation, the Senegalese international will have to stay put in Italy. At some point, he might even get a new contract, demands for which kicked off this whole saga back in the spring. Meanwhile, Chelsea are reportedly

At long last, from the sound of things, fans of the Philadelphia 76ers might this season — possibly, potentially, with a little bit of luck, maybe — actually get a look at that rarest and most imagination-captivating of theoretical beings: a fully healthy Joel Embiid. The 7-foot-2 Cameroonian prospect, whom the Sixers selected out of Kansas with the third overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft despite pre-draft fractures in his lower back and foot, was front and center during the Sixers’ Beach Bash in Avalon, N.J., this weekend.
