  • Pirates fan makes a perfect barehanded grab

    On Sunday at PNC Park, one Pittsburgh Pirates fan performed a public service for everyone watching. On the 3-2 pitch, catcher Elias Diaz hit the ball foul, and it careened toward the stands on the first base side. It sailed over the Phillies’ dugout, and it was headed right for a Pirates fan sitting with his son.

  • Rudy Gay has 'no idea' what the Sacramento Kings are doing

    Rudy Gay’s no stranger to trade rumors. The latest round of rumors came a couple of weeks back courtesy of ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, who reported that the Sacramento Kings “are actively seeking to move Gay as well as big man Kosta Koufos and guard Ben McLemore” as they look to shuffle up their roster in pursuit of better results — like, say, a .500 record and outside shot at the West’s No. 8 seed — for what feels like the umpteenth year in a row.

  • Aaron Rodgers reveals the true meaning of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call

    Thanks to Aaron Rodgers, the mystery of Peyton Manning's 'Omaha' call has finally been solved. For years, football fans everywhere have tried to solve the riddle of the 'Omaha' call, only to come up empty. The frustration has finally come to an end though because Rodgers spilled the beans during a recent appearance on the HBO show Any Given Wednesday. During the interview, host Bill Simmons asked Rodgers who he tries to emulate at the quarterback position. The Packers quarterback mentioned that he'll occasionally watch film on guys like Manning, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady. During an extra segment after the show, Rodgers went into even more detail on what he likes about Manning "I like watching

  • Kevin Durant’s “KD” restaurant in Oklahoma City closes, to re-open under new name

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) In the winter of 1998, Ethan Casson started calling professional franchise after professional franchise, begging them to get his foot in the door in any capacity. One night, a human resources employee for the Minnesota Timberwolves picked up the phone and Casson talked his way into a meeting. “To think that what started as a cold call of me begging an HR person to let me come in and prove my worth 18 years later turned into me coming back as a CEO is amazing and certainly very special to me,” Casson told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Casson had to sell his car and some other possessions to raise the money to pay for his move from Boston to the Twin Cities, but the leap of faith has paid off.

To explore the Real Madrid superstar’s Instagram is to see Ronaldo, sometimes clothed, hanging out with celebrities. In the last couple weeks we’ve seen him with Eva Longoria, Jennifer Lopez, and now his “bro” Conor McGregor. Wait, what? Yeah, Ronaldo is friends with the MMA star, and showed no ill form (and no brace of any kind) in several posed photos with McGregor. Although admittedly, McGregor’s IG game is a bit better: The Irish fighter posted a photo of himself sunning in his briefs with the caption, “I’m gonna get him on the Forbes list by next year.

    Rudy Gay has come up again and again in trade rumors. The Kings forward doesn’t seem thrilled with that. Gay, in a Q&A with Blake Ellington of Sactown Royalty: You mentioned people are wondering if you are going to be here next season. I imagine you are like most of the guys in the league and try not to pay attention to that stuff, but do you pay attention to trade rumors and does it bother you? I mean it’s been pretty loud as of late so it’s hard not to pay attention to it. I think it just goes to, I don’t know, I think there’s always ways to do things and in this situation I don’t think it’s going about the right way.

  • Upset over contract status, Chiefs' Eric Berry won't report to camp

    In the days leading up to the July 15 deadline for teams to sign their designated franchise players, the Kansas City Chiefs and safety Eric Berry were reportedly “miles apart” on a deal. Since Berry has not signed his franchise tag, and is therefore not under contract, he cannot be fined by the club. Berry’s recent battle with Hodgkin’s disease played a role in negotiations, with NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reporting that the Chiefs wanted Berry to pay for a disability insurance policy that would have named the team as beneficiary.

  • Matt Kenseth turns in a ‘respectable Sunday’ with second-place finish

    Matt Kenseth was in position to win his first race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday afternoon, but he couldn’t keep up with teammate Kyle Busch. As Busch drove away to his second consecutive Brickyard win, it was Kenseth who followed him across the finish line. Although Joe Gibbs Racing had brought a fleet of fast cars, Kenseth was unable to overtake Busch for the race lead. “It didn’t seem like it,” Kenseth said of whether he had anything for Busch. “We never got in front of him all day, and the clean air is always really big here.” Sunday was the third time in 17 Indianapolis starts that Kenseth finished second. More importantly, it was a nice recovery for the No. 20 Dollar General

  • Ex-Cavalier Sasha Kaun retires

    Accompanying their signing of Chris Andersen, the Cavaliers paid Philadelphia to take Sasha Kaun. Cleveland, facing a steep luxury tax, didn’t want to pay both big men. It was cheaper to send the 76ers cash and have them waive Kaun rather than the Cavs doing it themselves. But perhaps the Cavaliers could’ve just waited out Kaun. Gary Bedore of the Lawrence Journal-World: Sasha Kaun, one of only two Kansas University basketball players, along with Hall of Famer Clyde Lovellette, to win an NCAA title (2008), NBA title (2016) and medal in the Olympic Games (2012 bronze), has decided to retire from pro ball at the age of 31. “I was very blessed and fortunate to play as long as I have.

  • Mostly MLB Notes: Lance McCullers and a look around the league

    Lance McCullers’ .382 BABIP is easily the highest in baseball (despite Houston fielding a strong defense), and his 25.7 Hard% ranks No. 135 (sandwiched between Johnny Cueto and Felix Hernandez and just behind Jake Arrieta). The top-four pitchers in this stat are Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer, Noah Syndergaard and Jose Fernandez, so it’s a fairly strong suggestion McCullers is due for a strong final couple of months to the season.
