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.

Even though Odell Beckham's on-field behavior and demeanor have long been in question, the Giants star receiver insists he is not going to change the way he plays.
St. Louis Cardinals prospect John Kilichowski will forever be the answer to a trivia question no one thought would exist even two months ago. During Wednesday’s instructional league game against the New York Mets, he was the pitcher who allowed a home run to Tim Tebow in Tebow’s first ever professional at-bat. 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.
Brett Hull was a sensational choice for ESPN as an analyst, as his passion for Team USA brought gravitas to his off-the-cuff comments. “The philosophy was picked, and they picked it to beat Canada,” continued Hull.
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

Boone Pickens, whose name is on the Cowboys’ stadium, has started the Bedlam rivalry a little early this year with some choice words for Oklahoma president David Boren.

Vigneault added, "I'm seeing this young man here who doesn't speak a lot of English trying to figure it out and he's
Brandon Jones was a fan of team owner Richard Childress long before he had the chance to drive for him. “I think it was my first race at Las Vegas,” Jones told NBC Sports. “He was in a hurry, Richard’s always in a hurry, but I was like, ‘Hey!’ I didn’t even know what to say to him. And now, thank gosh last year I got an opportunity to drive with him a little bit, and now we’re best friends. You can come in his office and kick back and have a normal conversation, so it’s great.” Jones, now 19, was given a five-race opportunity in 2015. After earning two top-five finishes, Jones received a full-time ride for 2016 driving the No. 33 Chevrolet. “It was a grin on my face, that’s for sure,” Jones said

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.
The biggest and most obvious of these, this week at least, is Jacob Trouba, whose agent recently revealed a trade request made back in May. But in terms of unsigned young stars, he’s actually a rather faint one. 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.
Gerard Pique scored the winning goal for Barcelona in the 73rd minute. Second-half goals from Arda Turan and Gerard Pique saw Barcelona maintain its perfect start in the Champions League as the Blaugrana came from a goal down to defeat Borussia Moenchengladbach 2-1 on Wednesday. Gladbach had taken the lead in the first half when Thorgan Hazard, the less famous brother of Chelsea star Eden Hazard, opened the scoring in a brilliant counterattacking move by the home side.
Jay Bruce homered for the second straight day to help the Mets defeat the Marlins, 5-2, in the teams' final meeting of the season on Wednesday night at Marlins Park.
Following his third straight victory in Singapore two weeks ago, Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg heads into this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix as the Formula 1 drivers’ championship leader for the first time since the middle of July. After Lewis Hamilton’s mid-season resurgence, many expected the Briton to sweep through the remainder of the year and pick up his fourth world title. Rosberg dug deep, though, with his Singapore victory arguably being his most complete thus far in 2016. The eight-point gap to teammate Hamilton may offer some comfort, but the German shan’t rest easy on it. It feels strange for F1 to be visiting Malaysia so late in the season. The race has traditionally been the second
The Mets announced Tuesday that tickets to a potential 2016 National League tie-breaker game will go on sale this Thursday, September 29 at 2:00 p.m., online at Mets.com/tickets.

However, the Mets and Cardinals split the only six games they played this season, leaving their tie-breaker up in the air. According to MLB's rules, after head-to-head, the next tie-breaker is better

Seidenberg is currently playing a significant role for Team Europe, a surprise finalist against the heavily favored Canadians.
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. If these things happen, Europe will win, and I’ll try to support gracefully by embracing the same sense of fair-mindedness that has permeated this unbiased article.
Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is pursuing a degree in criminal justice. Don’t let the name fool you. Green Bay Packers defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is taking the racial divide that’s cutting through cities across this country as seriously as any player in the NFL. Maybe even more seriously, and that includes backup San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
