  • Mourinho praises Rooney, stays level after Manchester United’s third-straight win

    Jose Mourinho implored Manchester United to relax after a three-match losing streak included losses to Manchester City, Feyenoord, and Watford. So it makes sense that the Portuguese boss isn’t throwing a parade after United went in the other direction with a trio of wins over Northampton Town, Leicester City, and Zorya Luhansk. “One week, three defeats. One week, three victories,” Mourinho explained after Thursday’s 1-0 win over Zorya at Old Trafford. “But I was not depressed by the defeats and I am not over the moon with three wins.” United looked ready to score from the opening whistle, but only found a single goal. Mourinho went out of his way to praise substitute Wayne Rooney, whose flubbed

On the first pitch he saw, Tebow took a high-and-outside fastball from Kilichowski and basically tomahawked it over the fence in left-center field.

    Will they do enough to help Europe keep the Cup?Now this is what the Ryder Cup needed: a little old-fashioned name-calling. Except Europe's captain Darren Clarke isn't having any of it.  On Wednesday, Danny Willett's brother penned a satirical article for the National Club Golfer where he absolutely went in on the U.S. players and fans.  A small sampling: "For the Americans to stand a chance of winning, they need their baying mob of imbeciles to caress their egos every step of the way. They need to silence the pudgy, basement-dwelling, irritants, stuffed on cookie dough and pissy beer, pausing between mouthfuls of hotdog so they can scream ‘Baba booey’ until their jelly faces turn red.
