  • Cause of Ohio HS Football Player's Death Determined as Game Video Released

    The Ohio high school football player whose death came two days after he suffered a game-related injury died of peritonitis, or inflammation of the abdominal cavity lining, which resulted from a small-bowel laceration caused by blunt impact to his abdomen, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner said. Andre Jackson’s autopsy was performed today, as video emerged showing his collision with an opposing team member in a game last week. In the video, Jackson, visible by his No. 48 jersey, can be seen attempting to retrieve the ball before he appears to be unintentionally kicked in his abdomen by a member of the Solon High School football team.

  • Arnold Palmer's Longtime Assistant on the Golf Legend's Life and Death: He Was a Great Golfer and Even Greater Man

    The title of Arnold Palmer's final memoir that's due out in a few weeks is called A Life Well Played, which couldn't be more appropriate, especially now in light of his passing Sunday at age 87. "His shoulder never healed and it started a bit of a downward spiral," his personal assistant for 50 years, Doc Giffin, tells PEOPLE. Palmer, the winner of 62 PGA Tour titles and seven major championships, could no longer play the game he loved so much, the game that had given the greenskeeper's son from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, so much.

Mika Zibanejad said that from his short time with Buchnevich he can tell that he is "really skilled," passes the puck well, brings lots of speed and is "fun to play with." (NYR) Zibanejad said that the key to working with Buchnevich now is to keep things simple with speaking and to use words that he understands.

It will be the first UFC event in New York since the state lifted the nearly 20-year-old ban on MMA in the state and the first since UFC 7 was held in Buffalo on Sept. 8, 1995.

  • The Cardinals were jeered at home last night

    The Cardinals got shellacked 15-2 by the Reds, one of baseball’s worst teams, last night. In so doing they fell a half game behind the Giants for the second Wild Card. Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post Dispatch wrote about last night’s game. What struck him was the reaction from the crowd at Busch Stadium: And the fans, in a rare moment of pique, let the Cardinals hear about it, first booing and then erupting in a Bronx cheer when the final out of a seven-run fourth was recorded. They booed a little more later on and then many of them beat the traffic, with some of them at least leaving with a Grateful Dead T-shirt, a special theme night promotion . . . The paid crowd to witness the carnage was

  • FIFA under fire for disbanding anti-racism task force

    By Chris Bertram MANCHESTER (Reuters) - World soccer's governing body FIFA was under fire on Monday for winding up its anti-racism task force with former presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein of Jordan describing the move as worrying and shameful. FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura confirmed the decision when she spoke to the Soccerex conference in Manchester, saying the task force had a "very specific mandate". "We can live with perception (created by disbanding the task force) but we are taking very firm action." However, Prince Ali, a former FIFA executive committee member who has twice run for the presidency, said that "the notion that the current FIFA leadership believes that the task force’s recommendations have been implemented is shameful." He added that the announcement was "incredibly worrying".

  • Rangers believe Zibanejad’s best is yet to come

    It’s plausible – yet not guaranteed – that Derick Brassard will be better next season than the player he was traded for, Mika Zibanejad. Plenty of New York Rangers fans are justified in being excited about the long-term impact of the move, and not merely because of the second-round pick they received in the swap. Zibanejad is a lot younger than Brassard. Even if Brassard ages well at 29, his Swedish trade counterpart is merely 23. The Rangers, quite reasonably, wonder if Zibanejad’s best days are still ahead of him. “He’s a younger player that our scouting staff and our management all felt he was on the upswing,” Vigneault said to the Rangers’ website. “The speed is there. The skill is there.

  • Derek Falvey named Twins new president of baseball operations.

    ESPN’s Keith Law reports the Twins have hired Derek Falvey as their new president of baseball operations. Falvey has been the Indians assistant general manager for the past year after spending a decade with the organization. He’s only 32 and he’s analytically-inclined. Which, given that the Twins front office has been particularly young or analytically-inclined, should be a pretty major change of pace. The Twins’ longtime general manager, Terry Ryan, was fired in July. The club lost its 100th game yesterday, marking only the second time since the franchise moved to Minnesota that it has lost that many games.
