NBA Player Jason Collins Comes Out, Twitter Erupts
  • Jose Mourinho has told this star he has no future at Manchester United

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho began his expected squad cull on Thursday, as he seeks to trim the fat from the club before the start of the new season. The seniority of the culled players, though, was perhaps a surprise. The Daily Mail reported Germany international Bastian Schweinsteiger was one of the players told by Mourinho that he had no future at Old Trafford. Schweinsteiger, 31, was a high-profile signing last summer by Mourinho’s predecessor Louis Van Gaal. But he largely disappointed in his first season at the club, before an injury cut short his campaign in early April. It was also reported on Friday morning that Schweinsteiger had retired from international football, after

  • Ex-NBA player hits Twitter, begs teams to give him one more chance

    Von Wafer of the Boston Celtics reacts after scoring against the Miami Heat on Feb. 13, 2011. It’s been four years since Von Wafer last played in the NBA, and, from the sound of it, that’s quite long enough for him, thanks. The 31-year-old shooting guard, a former McDonald’s All-American and second-round draft pick out of Florida State, last saw an NBA court with the Orlando Magic in May of 2012.

  • Big 12 Expansion, Notre Dame, And ACC Grant of Rights

    How long can the Notre Dame Fighting Irish remain Independent in football? Seriously- how can they do it while a massive amount of college football fans and talking heads are basically demanding that the Irish join a conference? Well, it’s because Notre Dame has Savvy Jack Swarbrick. Let’s take this back for a minute. Remember how this all really got started? Remember how conference expansion really took off like a bottle rocket? It was when Nebraska decided that enough was enough, and instead of being controlled by Texas (as the Big 12 was) it was going to head to a place that would appreciate them and shortly give them an equal share at the table... The Big Ten. And so began the crazy storm

  • A Tour pro charged for clubs? And can't pay?

    SPRINGFIELD, N.J. – Rich Beem opened with a 1-under 69 on Thursday at the PGA Championship, his first under-par round on the PGA Tour since 2012. As good as that moment was for the 45-year-old, his week didn’t start that well. Beem, who won the 2002 PGA Championship, rarely plays on Tour and spends his time now working as an analyst for Sky Sports. As he readied for his start at Baltusrol he reached out to Matt Rollins, the Tour rep for Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), to order a set of the company’s clubs. He was charged $2,800. That’s when things became a little uncomfortable. PGA Championship: Full-field scores | Live blog: Day 1 | Photo gallery “He gave me a bill, he tried to run my credit card

  • Martina Hingis loses another Olympic doubles partner

    Martina Hingis‘ Olympic return is off to a rough start, and the Games are still nine days away. Hingis, the five-time Grand Slam singles champion who is set to go 20 years between Olympic appearances, has lost her slated doubles and mixed doubles partners on consecutive days. Hingis is not playing singles in Rio. Belinda Bencic became the fourth female tennis player ranked in the top 20, and the second Swiss player of either gender in as many days, to withdraw from the Olympics on Wednesday. Bencic, a 19-year-old ranked No. 16, is behind in training following a wrist injury suffered at Wimbledon last month, according to her social media.

  • 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.

  • Antonio Brown will accept Brandon Marshall's bet, but he can't 'internet it'

    Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall threw down a super-expensive gauntlet recently, challenging Steelers’ Antonio Brown to a car bet over which dominant AFC receiver would have more receiving yards. Marshall, per a video he posted on his Instagram page, offered up his new Porsche for Brown’s Rolls Royce, the one he just drove to training camp, winner take all. “He don’t really wanna do that,” Brown said, per TMZ. “He just wants some PR. He too old to be doing that. “The RR is about $100k up [from the value of the Porsche]. If he really serious, CALL ME … I’ll gladly accept. Don’t Internet it.” We have to agree with Brown. No publicity-seeking challenges. No “interneting it.” Marshall can’t be

  • Chris Archer’s up-and-down season continues amid trade speculation

    Amid trade rumors, Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer fell to 5-14 after losing Tuesday. LOS ANGELES – Sometimes it’s no more than a few inches across 100 pitches or more, “This close,” Chris Archer was saying, holding his thumb and forefinger the breadth of one of those inches, not that that excuses anything that’s gone on for the Tampa Bay Rays or, for that matter, Chris Archer. It’s late Tuesday night and he’s given up a couple unearned runs and one very long home run, those dovetailing with the Rays’ fourth consecutive loss, all by one run, and his 14th loss, not that those fairly represent where he’s been or, perhaps, where he’s going.

  • Carmelo Anthony predicts Knicks-Bulls on Christmas or opening night

    Carmelo Anthony said the Knicks should have gotten a Christmas game last year. In hindsight, the NBA reportedly agreed. So, Anthony expects New York to get a marquee matchup — against the Bulls — on either Christmas or opening night. Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal: The storylines are overflowing. The Knicks added Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah — two former Bulls — to join Anthony, who strongly considered Chicago in his last free agency. The Bulls answered with a couple big names: Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo. They’ll join Jimmy Butler, whose stature is only growing — just like Kristaps Porzingis in New York. Those are plenty of attention-drawing players, and the league will want to capitalize,

He’s done that now. Now, he wants to test himself against the best.” Hatton said that Brook, the unbeaten International Boxing Federation welterweight champion,

  • Detroit Tigers add much-needed component of physical pain to 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' contest

    For too long, the game “Rock, Paper, Scissors” has been relegated to the realm of the trivial, used more often to determine mundane obligations like who’s going to walk to the store to buy more beer than meaningful outcomes like who’s going to get wailed over the head with an empty water jug. Luckily, the Detroit Tigers have set out to right this wrong: From Justin Verlander’s Instagram comes evidence of the Tigers’ high-stakes version of “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” In the above video, second baseman Ian Kinsler throws scissors while shortstop Jose Iglesias throws paper, and because scissors cut paper, Kinsler gets to wallop Iglesias on the head with the water jug.
