  • Usain Bolt Brought Up to 10 Women Back to His London Hotel Room

    It's been an eventful month for Usain Bolt, who not only turned 30 and solidified his title as the fastest man in the world, but who also partied, made out, and possibly had sex with people who were not his longtime girlfriend while he was in Rio. PEOPLE now reports Bolt took his talents to London after the games, where he brought as many as 10 women back to his hotel room two nights this week. A source tells the magazine Bolt arrived at London's Cirque le Soir nightclub around 1 a.m. Monday and "[continued] the party back at his hotel" with a group of club-goers.

  • U.S. Soccer sends strong – and troubling – message with Hope Solo suspension

    The one who has brought more negative attention to the United States women’s national team than every other player in its long and laureled history combined? On Wednesday, she was formally suspended from the women’s national team for six months, a year and a half after she was suspended for 30 days when her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, was arrested for driving a women’s national team van under the influence with Solo, reportedly also inebriated, in the passenger seat – an incident she failed to disclose to the federation before it was reported in the media.

  • Lane Johnson says he'll sue supplement company over suspension

    Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson first complained about the NFLPA’s lack of supplement testing after his positive test triggered a 10-game suspension. Now he says he’ll sue the supplement company that he says sold him the amino acids that led to the positive test. Johnson had $25 million in guaranteed money remaining on his deal, but the positive test meant none of that money is guaranteed anymore due to a clause in his contract.

  • Blizzard burned its biggest fans with World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor

    Warlords of Draenor, World of Warcraft’s fifth expansion pack, was met with buzz and approval of fans and critics alike when it released in November 2014. I was one of those critics, laying effusive praise (and an extremely high score to match) at the expansion’s feet in my review. It wasn’t just player and critical feedback, either. That love for the expansion showed in subscriber numbers, which crested over 10 million once more for the first time in years. But then something happened. I stopped playing three or four months after Warlords of Draenor released. And I was far from alone. In the summer of 2015, World of Warcraft’s subscriber numbers hit a nine-year low, dropping from over 10 million

  • Phil Jackson names biggest mistake with Knicks: Not taking Jae Crowder in Mavericks trade

    Jae Crowder – one of the NBA’s most underrated players – went to the Celtics from the Mavericks in the Rajon Rondo trade (which, in hindsight, should be called the Jae Crowder trade). He then re-signed with Boston on an absurdly cheap contract. But the Knicks could’ve had him instead. New York traded Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to the Mavericks for a package of middling assets in June 2014. One of those middling assets was the No. 34 pick in the upcoming draft. It could’ve been Crowder. Knicks president Phil Jackson, via Charley Rosen of Today’s Fastbreak: I think the biggest mistake I made was actually this…One of the first deals I engineered when I came back to New York was to trade Tyson

  • Falcons vs Dolphins final score and immediate reactions

    The Miami Dolphins hosted the Atlanta Falcons in a Preseason Week 3 contest that featured the starters for both teams playing deep into the game. Miami’s offense came out in rhythm for the first time this year, and the defense stepped up as well. In all, it was a good game for Miami, while the Falcons seemed to struggle. Below, you will find a run down of the game, as well as my immediate reactions to all of the action throughout the contest: They did a pretty good job of making the stadium look like the Dolphins’ home stadium with the colors and banners.

  • One of James Harden's teammates promises he'll play defense this season

    Despite making four straight All-Star teams and scoring at an elite level for a team that made the Western Conference Finals just 15 months ago, Harden is known as a player with effort issues and the sort of temperament that might not be suited to leading a contender. Luckily, this upcoming season offers a fresh opportunity for Harden and the Rockets to win over the hearts and minds of basketball fans. Dwight Howard is gone, free agents Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon are around to provide help, and Mike D’Antoni is in as head coach.

  • Alex Morgan comments on suspension of U.S. national teammate Hope Solo

    Alex Morgan returned to the Orlando Pride this week after competing for the U.S. women's national team in the Summer Olympics. The U.S. lost in the quarterfinals, the team's worst finish in history, to Sweden. Everyone was disappointed and heartbroken after the loss, Morgan said. But one player shared her feelings about the match in a way that drew heavy criticism from teammates, fans and the U.S. Soccer Federation, the sports' governing body. Goalkeeper Hope Solo called Sweden "a bunch of cowards" after the match and Wednesday was suspended for six months by U.S. Soccer for her remarks.  “I heard about it just as everyone else did on social media," Morgan said of the suspension before training

  • Georges St-Pierre Will Reportedly Make His Long-Anticipated Return To MMA At UFC 206

    Following the news that former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre had “started the USADA process” to mount a UFC comeback after three years away from the game, it appears that “Rush” has actually, finally set a date for his official return. Big Brand Boys is reporting (citing “inside sources”) that GSP has been locked in to return at UFC 206 on December 10, 2016 in, where else, Toronto. St-Pierre’s opponent has not been named as of yet, but it’s being suggested that he was “offered a superfight” in Toronto with names like Nick Diaz and even middleweight champion Michael Bisping finding their way to the top of the rumor mill. While a fight with either of those two would likely draw the most eyeballs, it would directly conflict with what welterweight champ Tyron Woodley told Sirius XM’s Jason Ellis just a few weeks ago.

  • SI's Knicks offseason grade is a D

    The Knicks added Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and others this offseason, but Sports Illustrated gave their offseason an overall grade of D. According to SI, the Knicks' best move was 'trying' for Carmelo Anthony and their worst move was signing Noah, which they say "already screams disaster." The "skinny," says SI is that the Knicks are living in 2016, not 2011 -- when their biggest acquisitions were at their best. SI refers to the signings of Courtney Lee and Brandon Jennings as more "agreeable" than the acquisitions of Rose and Noah, but adds that the safe money is to bet on "something going wrong."

  • Video: Jarrod Dyson becomes the first in Marlins Park history to rob a home run

    Marlins Park has been around since 2012, but coming into Thursday’s action, the ballpark hadn’t seen any player rob a home run. Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson changed that in Thursday night’s series finale in Miami. Christian Yelich smoked a 1-2 slider that Edinson Volquez left up in the zone, hitting what looked like a solo home run to straightaway center field. Dyson gave chase, timed his leap, and snagged the ball in spectacular fashion to save a run on Volquez’s behalf. The Statcast numbers are pretty impressive: Indeed, Dyson’s snag is the first home run robbery at Marlins Park, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

  • Tony Romo survives, Ezekiel Elliott electrifies: 8 NFL preseason takeaways

    Before we begin, an important disclaimer: Tony Romo is not dead. Romo -- and the Dallas Cowboys ' season -- remains intact. Anyway ... two dress rehearsals took place on Thursday night. One game included two teams, the Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons , that shouldn't factor into the playoff race. Another game featured two NFC foes, the Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks , that figure to be playing deep into January. As expected, it was the latter game that mattered more. Ezekiel Elliott shined in his preseason debut, Dak Prescott kept on streaking, Russell Wilson performed some live magic, and Romo's night went like this: Let's break it all down from Miami's 17-6 win and Seattle's 27-17 victory.

  • Pat Summitt's will leaves 'personal property' to Tyler Summitt

    Pat Summitt’s last will and testament didn’t spread the property of the Tennessee women’s basketball coaching legend. Summitt gave all of her "tangible personal property" to her only son, Tyler. A copy of the will was obtained by the News Sentinel, and it specified that Summitt’s property included "automobiles, clothing, jewelry and other articles of personal use or ornament." Summitt’s home off Alcoa Highway in Blount County was put up for sale earlier this summer. She lived at Sherrill Hill Senior Living in Knoxville from late January until her death on June 28 after a five-year battle with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The will is dated July 18, 2013.
