  • Tortorella: Don’t lose your mind over Team USA World Cup failure

    It’s nights like this when you miss the old John Tortorella, the fiery guy who wouldn’t have showered his winless World Cup of Hockey team with platitudes. Instead, the guy at the podium after Team USA’s 4-3 loss to the lowly Czech Republic on Thursday night praised many aspects of his team’s game and cautioned the hockey world not to put the plunger down and blow up the program after its flop in Toronto. :The players, we either make the coaches look good or, in the case of this tournament, obviously the blame’s going on [Tortorella].

  • Matt Kenseth OK with inspection rules change but wishes it was made earlier

    Matt Kenseth finished 9th at Chicago on Sunday (Getty). Matt Kenseth sees why NASCAR made the changes it did to the penalty structure surrounding laser inspection but would have liked to see the change made before the Chase began. NASCAR said Wednesday there would be no more minor penalties for teams whose cars fail laser inspection on the rear of the car. Both Jimmie Johnson and Martin Truex Jr.’s cars failed inspection by a slight amount after Sunday’s race at Chicago and NASCAR made the decision to penalize neither team after coming to the realization Johnson’s penalty would be much more impactful than Truex’s because Truex won the race.

    At the beginning of 2016, they had just qualified for the EU LCS and were considered by many to be one of weaker teams in the region. Through much of Spring Split 2016, Splyce didn’t do much to change that perception. Splyce came out swinging in Summer.

  • 15-year-old Brazilian pitcher impresses in WBC qualifier

    15-year-old Eric Pardinho lit up the radar gun in a WBC qualifier. Brazilian pitcher Eric Pardinho made sure at least some major-league teams paid attention to the World Baseball Classic qualifying games during the stretch run of the MLB season. The high heat came during a relief appearance in the sixth inning, going two-thirds of an inning and allowing one hit and one walk. Brazil is certainly not known as a baseball power – Yan Gomes of the Indians and Paulo Orlando of the Royals are the only active MLB players from there – but Pardinho’s potential speaks to the game’s growth in the country.

  • Manchester City: Behind the numbers of Pep’s perfect start

    We’re nine games into Pep Guardiola‘s tenure as Manchester City manager, and we don’t even know what he’ll sound like after a draw, much less a loss. Sure City went 1W-2L-1D in the preseason, if you want to be stringent, but Guardiola has since presided over five Premier League wins, three UEFA Champions League wins, one EFL Cup win, zero draws, and zero losses. By the numbers, Guardiola’s Man City has done some pretty impressive stuff, too, outscoring opponents 27-5 off the boots of 11 players. Sergio Aguero has nine, and three others have struck thrice. He’s rolled out 29 players including now on-loan veterans Samir Nasri and Joe Hart despite indoctrinating almost every one of them into his

  • TK Show: Billy Beane on the A's current slide, evaluating recent deals, accumulating young talent and... "Les Miserables"

    I asked A’s executive VP Billy Beane if Bob Melvin would definitely be the team’s manager after this season and into 2017, and Beane’s answer was clear: “Yes… absolutely.” I didn’t think this would go any other way, but I wanted to check to make sure–when you have Beane on a podcast, it’s time to check some things… and to talk about all sorts of different issues. We talked about going through the last two rough years for the franchise… We talked about the good deals (acquiring Khris Davis and Rich Hill, who turned into Jharel Cotton and Grant Holmes)… And the bad deals (signing Billy Butler two offseasons ago and having to release him with $10M left on his deal for next season)….

  • Dan Girardi isn’t worried about ‘doubters’

    Hopefully, for the sake of Dan Girardi‘s sanity, he doesn’t hear all of the heckling. The often-criticized New York Rangers defenseman is aware that he has plenty of critics, however, and hopes to bounce back in 2016-17. That doesn’t mean he necessarily loses sleep about it, as the New York Daily News reports. “I want to come out here and prove I can play,” Girardi said. “I know I’ve got a lot of doubters out there, but I’m not really worried about what’s getting said around here or anywhere else. I’m worried about myself, the team and what I can do to help the team. Just play the best I can and not worry about anything else.” In some quarters, Marc Staal also absorbs at least a portion of the

  • Elway on Osweiler: The deals you don’t make at times are the best

    Brock Osweiler looked like anything but an $18 million per year quarterback on Thursday night as the Texans were shut out in New England, and the guy who nearly signed him for not much less than that noticed. “A lot of times those deals you don’t make are the best ones,” Broncos executive V.P. of football operations and G.M. John Elway told Dave Logan and Susie Wargin of KOA radio on Friday. Though Elway was responding to specific question and had a lighthearted tone, he said what he said, and it’ll be interesting to see what Osweiler and the Texans eventually have to say about that. “Obviously it was a tough night for Houston last night and — but things move on,” Elway added. “You try to make

  • Ben Rhodes leads first Truck practice at New Hampshire

    Richard Childress Racing’s director of competition says NASCAR made the right decision in altering its penalty for a laser inspection violation and adds that the team can’t look back on what such a penalty did for Ryan Newman’s Chase hopes. NASCAR penalized Newman 15 points for failing the Laser Inspection Station after the Southern 500 earlier this month. Newman failed to advance. The cars of Martin Truex Jr., who won the opening Chase race, and Jimmie Johnson both failed the Laser Inspection Station two weeks later after the Chicagoland race.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator owns a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), sports a background in kickboxing and Taekwondo, and has been first row for some of the very best fights in mixed martial arts (MMA) history. Needless to say, the standup comedian could handle himself if push ever came to shove. And according to television personality and BJJ blue belt Anthony Bourdain, who has made an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Rogan is the last person you'll ever want to roll with.
