  • Joe Rogan: ‘I’m Not Doing It Anymore’

    UFC commentator Joe Rogan has been critical about interviewing fighters moments after they’ve suffered a knockout for years, but after UFC 203, Rogan has put his foot down and refuses to do it anymore. “It’s something I had suggested a long time ago, back when we interviewed Mirko Crop Cop (Filipovic) after (Gabriel) Gonzaga knocked him out,” said Rogan during his podcast. The straw that broke the camel’s back for the broadcaster came at UFC 203 on Sept. 10. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic knocked out Alistair Overeem in the fight card’s main event. Following the loss, as has been customary, Rogan asked Overeem about the defeat moments after the fighter regained consciousness. Overeem said

  • Ty Montgomery Finds NFL Loophole to Gain 37 Yards

    Leave it to a Stanford alum to find and exploit an NFL rule that would begin a touchdown drive. Ty Montgomery made a 37-yard play for the Green Bay Packers not because of his athleticism, but because of this: On the kickoff, the Detroit Lions sprung the ball to the three-yard line. Montgomery stepped out of bounds and dove on top of the ball while his feet were out of bounds. The Lions were then penalized for kicking the ball out of bounds, and instead of starting on the 3-yard line, the Packers got the ball on the 40. Four players later, they'd score a touchdown.

On the restart at Lap 290, Kenseth pulled away from Martin Truex Jr., who was second at the time, and seemed headed for the win until a caution for a multi-car incident. “They made it sound like I slowed down the last time,’’ Kenseth said after finishing second to Kevin Harvick.

  • Tonight will be rough for everyone, Collins says Mets will be respectful

    Yoenis Cespedes helped to hang a Mets jersey with Jose Fernandez's name and number (16) in the Mets dugout as a tribute to his Cuban countryman. Fernandez, 24, was killed in a boating accident early Sunday. The Mets also held a moment of silence for Fernandez before the national anthem. "Jeff Wilpon came to me and Asdrubal Cabrera with the idea, he had the jersey made," Cespedes told reporters after the game. "He came and spoke to us in the trainer's room before the game and I decided that I wanted to be the one to go out there and put it up, just to let everyone know how much this loss meant to us. ... I can tell you that we're going to take the jersey with us and we'll be putting it up again."

Ovechkin may not have had the greatest game of his life on Saturday, but watching that game, was the takeaway really that he let Russia down?
