  • Rosberg called before stewards over Hungary pole lap

    Nico Rosberg has been called to see the FIA race stewards over his pole position lap during qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix on Saturday. Rosberg’s final Q3 lap saw him edge out Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton for pole position by 0.143 seconds, but was partially completed under double-waved yellow flags shown following a spin for Fernando Alonso. Rosberg was adamant after the session that he lifted enough, and the stewards did not initially investigate it. However, over three-and-a-half hours after qualifying was completed, Rosberg has now been called in over a possible failure to slow for yellow flags during his Q3 lap. Rosberg will meet with the stewards at 19:45 local time in Hungary

  • The Rangers are expecting a better Kevin Hayes next season

    While speaking about Kevin Hayes on a conference call, Jeff Gorton said that he expects Hayes to come into this season with a chip on his shoulder and "play really well." Gorton said that Hayes is a 6-5 center who has shown at times "how good he can be in this league." He said that Hayes' second year was similar in some ways to a lot of players who have a good first year and struggle the next year to meet expectations. Alain Vigneault said after the season that Hayes is part of the Rangers future but needs to step up. It's been said that Hayes is someone who needs to engage more on a consistent basis.

  • Watch highlights of USA’s 111-74 rout of Argentina in exhibition game

    Argentina isn’t considered a medal contender heading into the Rio Olympics. Their golden generation — led by Manu Ginobili — has picked up a lot of speed on the downhill side of their careers at this point. They didn’t provide much of a challenge for Team USA in an exhibition game Friday night in Las Vegas, one won by the USA 111-74. Kevin Durant impressed playing with his new teammates in dropping 23 points, Paul George had 18, and the Americans had their way in the game. Which is what we’re going to see a lot of in Rio — the USA’s talent level is just steps above any other team in the tournament.

  • Georgia Southern vacates three wins from 2013-14 seasons

    Georgia Southern has vacated three wins from the 2013-14 seasons stemming from a two-year investigation into its football program, the school has announced. The violations occurred when the Eagles played an ineligible athlete in three games over those seasons. The wins came against Savannah State and St. Francis in 2013 and Louisiana-Monroe in 2014. Georgia Southern’s 2014 Sun Belt championship will not be impacted by the ruling. “While it is disappointing to vacate these three victories, we get to put this chapter behind us,” Georgia Southern AD Tom Kleinlein said in a statement. “The student-athletes on this year’s football team, and teams moving forward, are not affected by the NCAA’s ruling

    Terence Crawford was simply far too good for Viktor Postol. As Floyd Mayweather would say, it was easy work for the budding superstar from Omaha, Neb. He was faster, more accurate, hit harder and controlled the bout from start to finish to add Postol’s WBC belt to his collection. Crawford now has the WBO and WBC super lightweight belts and possibly a Nov. 5 date with Manny Pacquiao if the Filipino senator decides to fight again.

  • Kyle Busch leads at Indianapolis as race hits halfway point

    Defending winner Kyle Busch led at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as the Combat Wounded Coalition 400 hit the halfway mark. Busch started on the pole and led 59 of the first 80 laps with the Team Penske duo of Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano also taking turns at the front. Keselowski led for 15 laps after taking the top spot during green-flag pit stops. The No. 2 and No. 22 teams both stayed out until Lap 42 before making their first trip down pit road, in hopes of completing the 160-lap race on just three pit stops. The race’s second caution on Lap 54 helped negate that strategy for Keselowski. Logano, however, inherited the lead as crew chief Todd Gordon decided to stick with the strategy and

  • There is a report about Islanders eyeing a new arena in Nassau, too

    The New York Islanders’ new owners claim that Brooklyn’s Barclays Center is “our home,” yet there are all kinds of rumors going around about where they may settle. Things really heated up with talks of moving next to the New York Mets with a new arena in Queens, but apparently that’s not all. New York Newsday reports that the Islanders have met “several times” with the New York Racing Association to build a new arena in Belmont. This would mean that the Islanders would (wait for it) bring the team back to the Nassau area. It was emphasized that such talks were in early stages and that the ownership group is “weighing multiple options, including remaining in Brooklyn.” When it came to the rumors

    Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski, Danica Patrick, Ryan Newman and Ryan Blaney were involved in a late wreck on Lap 154 in Sunday’s Combat Wounded Coalition 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Edwards suffered the worst damage; his car was unrepairable, bringing his race to a disappointing finish after he had challenged for the lead for a good portion of it. Here’s what Edwards had to say about the incident: “It felt like I just got tight. Got down there, and whoever was on the outside of me. If indeed that’s what happened, I apologize.
