The current ranked No. 12 WTA player is struggling lately, but that doesn't stop Canadian tennis star Milos Raonic admitting he'd like to partner with her... in mixed-doubles, of course.
Double D: Ha, republicans not trusting the voting process. What a joke. Well they should know because they have violated the right to vote laws in 21 states by disallowing democrats and especially blacks and Hispanics the right to register and vote. In Wisconsin republican Scott Walker is ignoring a Federal Court order to allow people to register by refusing to hand registration information to democrats and minorities out at disginated agencies such as DMV. What hypocrites. Their motto is that cheating and not enforcing the law is ok. The Courts are considering a measure in Wisconsen that would require a new election later in November to assure that all eligible voters be allowed to vote under a system monitored by DOJ and enforced by the National Guard.
The #Knicks eat with the cadets & listen to a memorable speech @WestPoint_USMA. “It’s hard for me a little bit – I have a lot of respect for the kids here fighting — but it’s hard for me to understand why we go to war and why kids have to kill kids all around the world,’’ Noah said. Noah received permission from Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek to skip the team function.
Pallbearers wearing Miami Marlins star José Fernández number 16 jersey carried his casket into the private funeral that was held for the 24-year-old on Thursday.

Dee Gordon, the player who hit a solo home run to begin the first Marlins game after Fernández's death, was also spotted crying in the pews.

Tom Izzo landed his second commitment in the Class of 2017 as big man Xavier Tillman announced that he will be attending Michigan State. A 6-foot-7, 235 pound power forward, Tillman is a physical-if-undersized player that is rated as a three-star prospect. “Tillman is another big and strong interior presence for Michigan State,” said NBCSports.com recruiting analyst Scott Phillips.
Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon is known for having his finger on the pulse of his players. In fact, Maddon has actually drawn criticism from within for resting regulars and using “spring training” like lineups after the team clinched the NL Central division and wrapped up home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs. In particular, ace Jake Arrieta and catcher Miguel Montero weren’t thrilled with the lineups and some in-game changes that directly impacted them during Wednesday’s 8-4 loss in Pittsburgh.
The 3-0 Minnesota Vikings will host the 1-2 New York Giants this Monday night in their new stadium with both teams dealing with major changes.
Matthew Cerrone | Snapchat | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | About Me With tonight's win over the Phillies, the Mets have guaranteed themselves at least a tie of the second Wild Card spot and a potential tiebreak game on Monday. If the Mets can win one of the next two games -- regardless of what the Cardinals and Giants do -- the Mets clinch at least the second Wild Card spot outright. However, if the Mets win just the one from the Phillies and the Cardinals and Giants continue to win, things get interesting... Who gets home field, St. Louis or New York? Technically, it's not decided yet. However, in order for the Cardinals to force a tiebreak, it means they went at least 2-1, if not 3-0,
There were some cut-and-dried comments from Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson on Friday morning when the topic of receiver Josh Gordon came up. On Thursday, just days before his four-game suspension from the NFL was set to end and he could return to game play for the first time in almost two years as he’s been forced to the sidelines for repeated violations of the substance-abuse policy, the Browns and Gordon announced that Gordon was entering an in-patient rehab facility.
Yankees fan Andrew Fox's mid-game proposal didn't go as planned Tuesday when he opened up the ring box to find the engagement diamond he purchased alarmingly missing. The entire stadium looked on – as well as the TV audience at home – as Fox and girlfriend Heather Terwillinger searched for the M.I.A. bauble with help from their seatmates. "I literally started crying because I thought it was lost," Fox told ESPN.
Don’t interrupt Angel Pagan in the middle of a wild card race. Better yet, don’t interrupt him at all. A fan learned that the hard way during Friday’s Giants-Dodgers game. In the fourth inning, a group of fans ran onto the field with white flowers in their hands, presumably to hand to Giants players. According to eyewitness accounts, one player was reprimanded by San Francisco starter Madison Bumgarner, while Buster Posey fended off another. Angel Pagan, however, took more extreme and inventive measures. On-field security started closing in on the fan as he approached Pagan, but didn’t appear to pick up the pace until the outfielder dropped him on the field. Vin Scully, who was wrapping up the
Whether he meant to awkwardly deflect the ball – or not – to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the winning goal doesn’t matter right now. All that matters for one Wayne Mark Rooney is that he was on the field and found himself in the right place at the right time to create something positive for Manchester United.
On the latest CBT Podcast, Rob Dauster, Scott Phillips and Travis Hines, wonder whether a college basketball player will kneel for the national anthem, a nationwide protest — from the professional level to the high school level — that was sparked by San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick. It’s hard to imagine this protest, which began during the NFL Preseason when Kaepernick was photographed sitting during the national anthem, simmers by the time the college basketball season starts.
How sharp will Stenson be after taking a couple of weeks off to rest a torn ligament in his knee? Is Rose 100% fit, something he said he wasn’t during the FedEx Cup playoffs? Spieth and Reed were the U.S. bright spots in the loss two years ago in Scotland.
Alain Vigneault said that the Rangers need to put young players like Jimmy Vesey and Pavel Buchnevich into situations where they can be successful. He said that the two of them are "both good offensive players" and need to be put in positions where they can show the coaches and their teammates "what they can do." Vigneault said that Vesey wants to prove that he can play at this level and also possess "a great skill set" and is "very determined." (MSG) The Rangers have said that they want to go with three lines that can score and a fourth line that is focused a bit more on defense, faceoffs and penalty killing. Adam Rotter: Pending that the Rangers are healthy, there are only so many spots to
The New England Patriots head coach is doing some of his best work this season, and the Patriots’ 27-0 blanking of the Houston Texans in Week 3 was a maestro performance by him and his team. Bill Belichick had words for referee Walt Coleman. There’s interesting stuff throughout, including Belichick schmoozing with the former Patriots players and coaches now employed by the Texans, as well as the bits and pieces of Patriots’ strategy we get glimpses of.
Jose Aldo’s decision to request his release from the UFC and essentially walk away from his mixed martial arts career was years in the making and resulted from what he believes was a repeated pattern of disrespect. Globo revealed the news Monday that Aldo was unhappy that he hadn’t gotten a rematch with featherweight champion Conor McGregor and planned to walk away from the sport that had made him rich and famous. Aldo is the former UFC featherweight champion who is ranked fifth pound-for-pound.
The St. Louis Cardinals kept themselves firmly in the National League wild card race with a huge, walk-off win over the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday. Problem is, the hit that won the game may not have been called properly. With two outs in the ninth inning, catcher Yadier Molina stepped to the plate with a man on first. On the 2-0 pitch, Molina lined a ball deep to left field.
With the regular season ending on Sunday and most of the playoff spots locked up, there’s really only one big thing left to argue about: postseason awards. So let’s spend some time looking at who should win each of the four major awards and who will win them. Which are often totally different things. First up: The MVP Awards. Who should win the AL MVP Award? We at HBT have tended to lean toward the idea that the best player should win the MVP Award, regardless of whether his team wins or not. It’s not an iron-clad thing, of course. In the past I’ve supported some more narrative-driven MVP candidates and, more importantly, deciding who is “the best player” in an objective sense is not always
Hull has only won four matches vs. Chelsea (4-10-30) Tigers have allowed nine goals in previous two PL matches Chelsea looking to rebound following Arsenal blowout Costa remains tied for league lead with five goals Both Hull City and Chelsea come into the weekend on a poor run of form, giving both clubs plenty of incentive to push for a result.

When the Nationals fired Matt Williams a year ago, it might’ve been a safe assumption that they were going to go with that new breed of young, handsome recently-retired player-turned-manager who, despite a lack of experience, allegedly knows how to deal with modern players better and knows how to handle a clubhouse. Instead, the Nats hired Dusty Baker.
Each day during the Ryder Cup, writers, producers and editors from the Sports Illustrated Golf Group give their opinions on the trending topic of the day at Hazeltine National. Alan Shipnuck, senior writer, Sports Illustrated: Phil Mickelson will contribute more than just press conference barbs and incendiary headlines. It's mind-boggling that this swashbuckling shotmaker and Hall of Fame closer has laid an egg time after time at the Ryder Cup.
Dylan McIlrath said that his goal last season was to just get his foot in the door but this season he wants to be in a consistent top-six role. (NYR) He said that he needs to prove that he is a reliable defenseman and play consistently and use his tools to play "every night." (NYR) McIlrath said that he was on the ice 4 times a week from July on to get as many reps on the ice as he can. (NYR) Alain Vigneault said that for McIlrath to play on a consistent basis he needs to be defensively responsible and make good decisions with the puck. Vigneault said that McIlrath has gotten better each season and he is expecting him to be better than he was at the end of last season. He added that McIlrath
