  • You won't believe what Jamie Vardy drinks before Leicester City's games

    Jamie Vardy is having plenty of port parties. Premier League footballers will typically have their dietary regime strictly controlled by their employers. In order to squeeze that extra one percent from every performance, Pep Guardiola banned his Manchester City players from eating pizza, Antonio Conte has taken ketchup off the table and Arsene Wenger has taken a monastic view towards player diets since the 1990s.

  • Pitcher who allowed Tim Tebow's home run tweets funny response

    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.

    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.

Still, the organization will bring back manager Mike Matheny for the 2017 season, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. Owner Bill DeWitt, Jr. said, “Mike’s done a really good job for us. There’s no thought that we’re going to go in any different direction.” GM John Mozeliak also expressed his support, saying, “Mike takes a lot of heat, and I’ve defended him and I will continue to. I really feel like some of the things that we’re dealing with aren’t fair to put on the manager.” Mozeliak continued, “I do feel like all of us are always held

  • Fanfest canceled for this year’s NASCAR Champion’s Week in Las Vegas

    The annual Fanfest on Fremont Street that is part of the NASCAR Champion’s Week in Las Vegas has been canceled for this year. The Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper was first to report on the event’s cancellation in Thursday’s edition. Scheduling and logistic issues are partly cited for the reason of the cancellation, with Champion’s Week (Nov. 28 to Dec. 2) overlapping one of the biggest events held in Las Vegas each year, the National Finals Rodeo (Dec. 1 to Dec. 10). “We anticipate a new Champion’s Week schedule, which will prevent the event (Fanfest) from taking place,” Las Vegas Motor Speedway Vice President of Communications Jeff Motley told NASCAR Talk in an email.

  • Nick Saban would ‘love’ for Blake Barnett to stay at Alabama

    At least from Alabama’s side of it, the door’s not completely shut on Blake Barnett‘s future being in Tuscaloosa. Earlier Wednesday, a report surfaced that Barnett had decided to leave the football program and transfer out.  In meeting with the media a short time later, Nick Saban confirmed that Barnett had “expressed some concern about his future” at a meeting earlier in the day. The head coach said he “didn’t know” when asked if Barnett, who lost the starting quarterback job to true freshman Jalen Hurts earlier this year, was still a part of the team, although he made it clear that the redshirt freshman was still welcome in the locker room if he changes his mind. “Blake is a fine young man,”

  • Jose Aldo Claims Georges St-Pierre Demanded $10 Million to Fight Conor McGregor

    Jose Aldo recently declared to the media that he was fed up with the UFC and wanted to be released from his contract. A few short days later, it appears he is going public with sensitive company information to try and turn up the heat after UFC president Dana White said the company would not release him. Aldo's demand for a release came after the UFC changed directions on him on several occasions, the most recent being when it allowed Conor McGregor to retain his featherweight title, while booking him for his third consecutive fight outside of the division since wining it.

    And now we know a little bit more of the rest of the story. Thursday morning, reports surfaced that Alabama linebacker Tim Williams had been arrested for carrying a pistol without a permit.  Other than the fact that Williams was arrested by university police officers, no details were available.  Until now. From al.com: Williams was arrested in the Tuscaloosa Publix parking lot around 2:00 a.m., sources told AL.com. Police officers were doing a normal patrol when they smelled marijuana coming from Williams’ vehicle, according to sources. A passenger, who was not an Alabama football player, said the marijuana was his, but the officer then found the pistol under Williams’ seat while searching the

  • Ungrateful Atlanta Braves take the money and run

    (Adds Braves’ $90 million stadium-conversion cost in fifth paragraph and $40 million in renovation costs in seventh paragraph; corrects move to Cobb County in ninth paragraph.) Don’t say Atlanta never did the Braves any favors. When Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves wrap up their final game at Turner Field on Oct. 2 against the Detroit Tigers, they’ll be throwing away a gift they never deserved. They’re tossing aside a 20-year-old ballpark in Atlanta proper for a $700 million SunTrust Park in Georgia’s suburban Cobb County for one of the most specious reasons imaginable: The city wasn’t paying them enough money or attention to stay. That line of reasoning is completely devoid of reason.

  • Matt And Jeff Hardy Discuss Whether They'd Return To WWE And 'MeekMahan'

    Ever since the WWE brand split, there has been a lot of speculation about whether WWE would look to current and recently-departed TNA stars to help bolster their rosters. Reportedly, WWE and Triple H are extremely interested in signing Matt Hardy — who is doing the greatest work of his entire career with his “Broken” character — once his TNA contract is up next year. What complicates matters (or might potentially un-complicate them) is that Impact Wrestling is currently (reportedly) in dire straits and may even be on the verge of getting bought out by WWE.

  • Danny Willett's terrible Ryder Cup week just got even worse

    CHASKA, Minn. — Masters champion Danny Willett is playing in his first Ryder Cup this week, and wow, it is not going well. Some of it was self-inflicted. Earlier this week Danny’s brother P.J. Willett penned an article for National Club Golfer calling the hometown crowd “fat, stupid, greedy and classless.” The piece was presumably tongue-in-cheek, but it was offensive to many, and as USA TODAY’s Martin Rogers writes, Danny told captain Darren Clarke he was “mortified” by his brothers words. Willett’s family was so embarrassed by the comments that they contemplated returning home early. They didn’t, thanks in part to Willett’s swift apology. An unfortunate instance nevertheless which was followed

The article, written for Bleacher Report by longtime NFL reporter Dan Pompei , investigates the growth of McDaniels as a person and coach since his ill-fated run as Denver Broncos head coach. And it serves as a de facto announcement of McDaniels’ suitability and availability as a head coaching candidate after 2016. McDaniels deserves the recognition and the second chance. Mistakes and miscalculations he made when he was 33 and 34 shouldn’t be a millstone for the rest of his coaching career. If second chances weren’t given to Bill Belichick, Mike Shanahan and Tony
