    It’s nights like this when you miss the old John Tortorella, the fiery guy who wouldn’t have showered his winless World Cup of Hockey team with platitudes.

  • Nigeria’s richest man won’t give up until he owns Arsenal

    You might think that Africa’s richest man would be satisfied with his investments. But Nigerian cement tycoon Aliko Dangote, who is worth almost $13 billion (£10bn) according to Forbes, has one ambition that remains unfulfilled—to buy English Premier League club Arsenal. Sign up to our daily newsletter for up to date global news and features. Dangote, 59, and an ardent Arsenal fan, has expressed a desire to purchase the London-based football club multiple times before. The businessman discussed buying a 15.9 percent stake in Arsenal in 2010 before talks with the owners fell through, and said again in 2015 that he hoped to purchase the club “one day at the right price.” But Wednesday, Dangote

We talked about going through the last two rough years for the franchise… We talked about the good deals (acquiring Khris Davis and Rich Hill, who turned into Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes)… And the bad deals (signing Billy Butler two offseasons ago and having to release him with $10M left on his deal for next season)….

  • Elway on Osweiler: The deals you don’t make at times are the best

    Brock Osweiler looked like anything but an $18 million per year quarterback on Thursday night as the Texans were shut out in New England, and the guy who nearly signed him for not much less than that noticed. “A lot of times those deals you don’t make are the best ones,” Broncos executive V.P. of football operations and G.M. John Elway told Dave Logan and Susie Wargin of KOA radio on Friday. Though Elway was responding to specific question and had a lighthearted tone, he said what he said, and it’ll be interesting to see what Osweiler and the Texans eventually have to say about that. “Obviously it was a tough night for Houston last night and — but things move on,” Elway added. “You try to make

  • Video: Ben Bishop is gonna want to have this goal back

    It’s been an ugly tournament for Team USA and things aren’t going much better on Thursday night. To their credit, the Americans managed to fight back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits in their game against the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, things got away from them in the second period. With the score tied 2-2 late in the second period, Andrej Sustr beat Ben Bishop from a terrible angle to give the Czechs the lead. It’s safe to say Bishop will want to have this one back: Team USA head coach John Tortorella replaced Bishop with Cory Schneider at the start of the third period. In the end, this game is meaningless, but it would have been nice to see the Americans show a little more pride to close out the
