  • Tom Wilhelmsen kicks all of the Pirates out of his bar after they refuse to pay tab

    Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory. For the Seattle Mariners, for so many years, that player was Felix Hernandez, who would put the team on his back and try and drag them kicking and screaming to a 1-0 victory. Saying Happy Felix Day doesn’t ring necessarily as loudly and as enthusiastically as it once used to. Don’t get me wrong, I still love seeing the King take the mound, but he is a different King this year. And from the get go of the game, it looked like he was going to be a bad king who needs to be overthrown. The Pirates jumped out to a quick and tidy three run lead in the

  • Rory McIlroy rips 345-yard bomb during long drive contest and still loses

    An early disappointment for Rory McIlroy at the 2016 PGA Championship, but thankfully for him, it was all in good fun. Arriving on the tee ahead of the competition’s annual long drive contest early on Tuesday, Rory smashed a 345 drive that looked a virtual certainty to win the contest. Indeed, he was leading for most of the day. But then a dramatic twist to the story. More than six hours later, South Korean player An Byeong Hun snuck a drive 347 yards — just two yards past McIlroy’s — to snatch the prize from Rory’s hands in the final moments. Tough break. Rory spoke to ESPN about it afterwards: “I’m a little bit gutted,” McIlroy said with a smile. “That would have been a mini victory this week

    On Sunday at PNC Park, one Pittsburgh Pirates fan performed a public service for everyone watching. On the 3-2 pitch, catcher Elias Diaz hit the ball foul, and it careened toward the stands on the first base side. It sailed over the Phillies’ dugout, and it was headed right for a Pirates fan sitting with his son.

For years, football fans everywhere have tried to solve the riddle of the 'Omaha' call, only to come up empty. The frustration has finally come to an end though because Rodgers spilled the beans during a recent appearance on the HBO show Any Given Wednesday. During the interview, host Bill Simmons asked Rodgers who he tries to emulate at the quarterback position. The Packers quarterback mentioned that he'll occasionally watch film on guys like Manning, Drew Brees, and Tom Brady.

While Bosh and the Miami Heat largely kept their disagreements out of the press, reports indicated that player and team were at odds over when he should return to the court. Bosh apparently wanted to play in the postseason (where the Heat took the Toronto Raptors to seven games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals), but the team did not want to risk his health.

I imagine you are like most of the guys in the league and try not to pay attention to that stuff, but do you pay attention to trade rumors and does it bother you? I mean it’s been pretty loud as of late so it’s hard not to pay attention to it.

  • Ex-NFL QB Marcus Vick -- Insane Police Video ... Running from Cops, Captured at Gunpoint (VIDEO)

    TMZ Sports has obtained insane footage of ex-NFL quarterback Marcus Vick -- Michael Vick's brother -- literally running from cops during an incident back in April ... before being captured at gunpoint.  It all started at a gym in Newport News, Virginia -- when cops were questioning the 32-year-old about a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a civil case.  Vick spoke with cops for nearly 10 minutes before suddenly deciding to make a run for it -- shoving 2 cops out of the way, breaking tackles -- and SPRINTING down the street.  Cops gave chase ... but Vick is WAYYYYYYY FASTER (he ran a 4.42 in the 40 at the 2006 NFL Combine).  It seemed like he was going to get away -- but the cops stayed

Afterwards, word got out on Twitter from Joe Buono, who runs IslesBlog, that the captain spoke to Sportsnet 590 - The Fan about his much discussed future, even though the captain is two years removed from unrestricted free agency.

  • Chris Sale doesn’t regret protesting wearing White Sox retro uniform

    White Sox ace Chris Sale was scratched from Saturday night’s start against the Tigers due to a confrontation he had with White Sox coaches and front office staff over the 1976 retro uniforms the club was to wear. Sale used a knife to cut up his uniform as well as the uniforms of some other players, protesting the club’s decision to wear them. The White Sox suspended Sale five games “for violating team rules, for insubordination, and for destroying team equipment.” Sale spoke about the incident for the first time, as MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports. The lefty apologized to fans who came to see him pitch and said he regrets “not being there for my guys,” referring to the bullpen, which had to cover

  • Jose Reyes used until he broke, giving shot to Mets’ hottest hitter

    Jose Reyes was never indestructible, even when he was in his prime. So it seemed like the Mets might be asking for trouble by playing the 33-year-old every game after calling him up from the minors this month. On Tuesday, in his last at-bat of the Mets’ 3-2 loss to St. Louis in the first game of a doubleheader at Citi Field, Reyes suffered a Grade 1 left intercostal strain. The injury left Reyes unavailable for the second game, a 3-2 victory, and figures to sideline him for at least a few days, according to manager Terry Collins. Wilmer Flores started at third in the nightcap against lefty Jaime Garcia and had three hits. Collins anticipates that Flores will fill in for Reyes. “He’s done a great

    The Heat got Dion Waiters cheaply. Just not as cheaply as initially reported. Turns out, Waiters didn’t sign a one-year deal. It’s a two-year deal with a player option. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: Waiters holds a player option on the 2017-18 season If Waiters received the full room exception and maximum raise, his 2017-18 salary is slated to be $3,028,410. Given his self-confidence, there’s a good chance he’ll opt out. But Miami loses flexibility by putting the decision in his hands. The Heat now project to have just about $14 million of cap space in 2017. That counts the guaranteed salaries of Chris Bosh, Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson, player options for Josh McRoberts,
