National Football League stars both past and present have expressed outrage after President Donald Trump used an address in Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday to attack players who protest during the national anthem. Trump did not reference former San Francisco 49er Colin Kaepernick, who took a knee during the national anthem before games last year to protest police brutality and racial injustice, by name.
It has been nearly six months since Tiger Woods underwent his fourth back surgery and his latest update is both promising and worrisome at the same time. According to Woods, he is chipping and putting everyday, but he is still not taking full swings and he still can't hit the ball farther than 60 yards. "I’m starting to hit the ball a little further – 60-yard shots," Woods wrote.
Jessica Andrade made a very strong statement with her win on Friday night as she bloodied and battered former title contender Claudia Gadelha en route to a lopsided decision in the co-main event at UFC Fight Night in Japan. Andrade entered the fight as the underdog to Gadelha, who was off two straight wins, including a lightning quick submission over Karolina Kowalkiewicz earlier this year. By the time the fight was over, Andrade not only bounded back from a loss in her last fight, but she proved who is the best strawweight in the UFC not named Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Gadelha looked sharper than ever on the feet in the early going, as she was technical in the pocket while connecting with several stinging shots with Andrade attempting to fire back with big, looping punches.
