  • USMNT Pulisic on assist vs. Real Madrid: “There’s no better feeling”

    Christian Pulisic continued his fairytale rise up through the ranks of the soccer world on Tuesday as the 18-year-old jumped off the bench and notched a crucial assist as Borussia Dortmund scored a late equalizer in the UEFA Champions League against Real Madrid. Trailing the reigning European champions heading into the final few minutes at home in their Group F game, Pulisic picked up the ball on the right flank (see video below) and drove towards Real’s defense. He then clipped a dangerous ball to the back post which eventually found Andre Schurrle who rifled home. Dortmund’s fans went nuts and so did Pulisic.

  • The Indians may get a day off before the playoffs taken away from them

    It’s raining in Detroit today. Raining so much that it could postpone this afternoon’s Tigers-Indians game. The Indians already clinched the AL Central and will start play in the ALDS next week. The Tigers, however, are a game back in the Wild Card race and will likely be playing for their playoff lives until Sunday afternoon. Which means that today’s game may very well matter a lot for the Tigers as well as the Blue Jays and Orioles. Which means . . . Congratulations, Indians. As a reward for the Wild Card contenders not being able to put the others behind them, you could get a day off taken away from you before the playoffs! Which stinks, but when you think about it, it could also have some

  • Huge If True: What's happening with unsigned NHL RFAs?

Most notably, Bob McKenzie gave us the mother of all RFA rumor roundups this week, supplementing plenty of other reporting on the subject that has been widely circulated in recent weeks. Just to rattle off the list of names he addressed in his Wednesday morning tweetstorm: Tobias Rieder, Rasmus Ristolainen, Lindholm, Trouba, Kucherov and Gaudreau.

  • Report: Coyotes’ Rieder is considering KHL, among other options

    Arizona Coyotes forward Tobias Rieder has a big decision to make.

  • Pete Rose wrote a letter to the Hall of Fame, pleading to be placed on the ballot

    Tim Brown of Yahoo has obtained a letter written by Pete Rose — well, written by his attorney — to the Baseball Hall of Fame, pleading to be placed on the ballot so he could be considered for induction by the BBWAA. The upshot of the argument is that when Rose accepted his permanent ban from baseball, it did not include a ban from Hall of Fame consideration. Which, yes, is true. But it’s also true that soon after the ban, the Hall of Fame — which is a private institution, not owned by Major League Baseball — decided to change its rules and only allow those who are not banned by baseball to be on its ballot. That rule, 3(e), was enacted in February 1991. Which is itself a tad disingenuous, as
