    Baseball is a child’s game that when played as an adult sometimes requires life-altering business decisions. On Friday, free agent Dexter Fowler made one of those life-altering decisions. After posting a career season that helped the Chicago Cubs to their first World Series win since 1908, Fowler was in line to earn what would likely be his biggest payday as a professional baseball player.

  • Dana White Says Joe Rogan is Going Nowhere

    Chuck Liddell and Matt Hughes may have recently lost their “lifetime” positions with the UFC, but company president Dana White said that as long as commentator Joe Rogan doesn't want to leave that he's going nowhere. While there had been talk that new UFC owners WME-IMG might be willing to cut longtime broadcast team Mike Goldberg and Rogan loose in pursuit of a new television deal, at least one half of the team appears safe.

    Did you see that staredown by Oakland Raiders coach Jack Del Rio at Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid after Thursday night’s game? All we needed was for JDR to hit Reid in the back with a chair as Reid flexed for the crowd in some “Hulk Hogan is the third man!” type drama. “Not at all, not at all,” Reid said with a laugh when asked if there was any bad blood, according to Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star.

  • LeBron James moves to ninth place on NBA's all-time scoring list, RickRolls crowd

    LeBron James hit single digits in a scoring category on Friday night, and yet all went according to plan in his team’s 114-84 win. James went for 27 gutty points in his team’s win over the Miami Heat on Friday, and the Cavaliers star moved into ninth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list as a result. James’ 27 was second on the Cavaliers to Kevin Love’s 28-point, 15-rebound night, as the Cavs moved to 16-5 despite being without J.R. Smith due to injury, and Channing Frye (who missed the contest to attend his father’s funeral).

The finish of the Orton-Lesnar match has been second- and third-guessed by wrestling fans and insiders alike, but no one’s really gotten Orton’s take yet.
