The Seattle Seahawks defeated the Green Bay Packers 14-12 after a controversial touchdown call on the final play of the game.
The Celtics reportedly have offered the Pacers a deal to acquire star forward Paul George. According to Adam Kaufman of WBZ News Radio and 98.5 The Sports Hub, the Celtics offered the Pacers the first-round pick they received from the 76ers, either the 2019 Grizzlies or Clippers’ protected first-rounder, Jae Crowder and a money filler. Kaufman also noted Avery Bradley could be on the move as well for financial reasons. The C's, as reported by The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, are also working to sign Gordon Hayward this summer.
Not too long ago some rumors popped up about Bryce Harper wanting to sign with the Cubs when he hits free agency following the 2018 season. With the Cubs in town to face the Nationals, Harper was asked about those rumors again.
Two months out of the picture, Britt McHenry briefly reinserted herself into the ESPN drama — before attempting to cover it up. The sports reporter, who was one of approximately 100 employees ESPN let go in April, suggested in a since-deleted Twitter comment Monday she knows why the Worldwide Leader sent her packing: She’s a conservative at what she apparently sees as a liberal network. “I mean I’ve been openly Conservative… look how that ended up…” McHenry wrote in response to a tweet slamming ESPN for arguing it’s not liberal, according to a screengrab from The Big Lead. McHenry’s political reasoning comes at a time when ESPN’s supposedly liberal-leaning content has been widely debated, even inside Bristol.
Former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green was charged Monday with felony child abuse after his 15-year-old daughter told police he punched her in the face. Green, 40, is also charged with disorderly conduct in the incident late Sunday in the Green Bay suburb of Ledgeview. According to a criminal complaint, Green's daughter told police that he struck her in the face in a dispute over getting her to do the dishes. She also said he threw her to the ground and against kitchen cabinets. According to the complaint, Green told deputies he "may have" thrown his daughter to the ground and against cabinets. He said he slapped her in the head and believed he may have hit her glasses, causing a swollen
In a weekend packed to the brim with high level MMA, Felice Herrig and Justine Kish put on one of the most entertaining scraps in their main card fight at UFC Fight Night: Oklahoma City on Sunday. But despite a high action strawweight bout which saw Kish escape a fully locked in rear-naked choke attempt, the conversations surrounding the fight stem from what happened shortly thereafter when Kish defecated in her shorts while attempting to explode out of a bad position. The unfortunate incident made a mess on the mat which many people were quick to notice, chief among them, Herrig herself. Speaking recently with TMZ Sports, Herrig resisted the urge to make any “I literally choked the crap out
Enter the Kirk Cousins situation, which periodically will become the focal point of #breakingnews as the true pay-or-get-off-the-pot moment arrives. As noted last week, anything said about Cousins is “noise” for now, and nothing is going on between himself and the team. The safer guess at this point is that a deal won’t get done, primarily because Washington has done nothing over the past two years to show a willingness to get a deal done on the player’s terms.
USA Gymnastics needs to undergo a “complete culture change” throughout the entire organization to more effectively protect young athletes from sexual predators, according to a damning report released Tuesday. The 144-page report by former federal prosecutor Deborah Daniels suggests that a cultural shift throughout USA Gymnastics is needed following a series of civil lawsuits against the organization and the subsequent arrest of a former doctor who allegedly sexually abused teen gymnasts during their time on the team. Daniels later said the number of sex-abuse victims, already in the hundreds, in fact has been under-reported. “In order to protect the young athletes in its charge, USA Gymnastics needs to undergo a complete cultural change, permeating the entire organization and communicated to the field in all its actions,” the report reads.
An Arizona judge on Monday ordered Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Michael Floyd to serve one day in jail for failing alcohol tests that he blamed on a type of fermented tea. The hearing was meant to give Floyd a chance to make his case regarding the failed alcohol tests and another appearance he missed earlier this month, which stemmed from a 2016 drunken driving arrest in which Scottsdale police say they found the then-Arizona Cardinals receiver passed out behind the wheel. Floyd and his lawyer did not attend the Scottsdale City Court hearing and had a teleconference with Judge Statia Hendrix. Hendrix ordered Floyd start his additional jail time Monday evening in Phoenix before concluding his
Pending free agents almost always express loyalty to their current team, whether or not they actually plan to re-sign. That’s what makes Danilo Gallinari‘s comments stand out. Gallinari, via Premium Sport, as translated by E. Carchia of Sportando:
BOSTON -- When it comes to public opinion, Danny Ainge has never been one to be consumed by it or let it trickle into a decision he was thinking about for the roster. So you can understand why the "What are they doing?" cries from Celtics Nation when he traded away the No. 1 overall pick earlier this month never resonated with him. MORE ON GEORGE/HAYWARD Woj: Celtics working on acquiring both Hayward and George O'Connor: Celtics poised for a big summer . . . but wouldn't Griffin be a better fit with George than Hayward? Marcus Smart: Hayward is an 'awesome' player Giardi: People in George's camp think Boston's a better fit than L.A. And you can understand why Ainge, when the Chicago Bulls became
Each day this week until July 1, the day free agency begins, Tom Dougherty, Jordan Hall and Greg Paone will profile the five best goalie options for the Flyers on the open market and project their likelihood of signing. Selected with the 69th overall pick in 2006 by Columbus, Mason spent his first five seasons in the NHL with the Blue Jackets before being traded to the Flyers in 2012-13. Mason took the league by storm in his rookie season and took over the No. 1 job in Columbus.
You know the battle lines on all of that now: people who talk a lot about team chemistry tend to attribute winning or losing to good or bad chemistry, respectively. Jim Leyland agrees with me, for what it’s worth, so I’m pretty happy with my take.

A college softball pitcher just showed up Kansas City Royals catcher Drew Butera. Paige Parker of the University of Oklahoma Sooners got a chance to warm up with the Royals before a recent game, blowing away Butera with an assortment of pitches. Safe to say the @Royals were impressed when @paigeparker008 warmed up last week before her first pitch.

When Taco Charlton got drafted by the Dallas Cowboys, it seemed likely that a Mexican restaurant was going to make a deal with the former University of Michigan defensive end. "We had meetings with a bunch of restaurants that sell tacos and we were looking for a long-term relationship," Charlton's agent, Joel Segal, said. The winner of the sweepstakes to land Charlton was revealed Tuesday, and Taco Bueno prevailed. The 3,000-employee company has more than 180 stores in seven states, but roughly half of those restaurants are within the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. "I actually fell asleep towards the back end of the first round of the draft," Taco Bueno CEO Mike Roper said. "But when I woke up
For the first time in ages, the Detroit Red Wings missed the playoffs. Look, one or even a couple of potential free agent signings won’t disqualify the Red Wings from going younger. Daley was mentioned by The Athletic’s Craig Custance, MLive.com’s Ansar Khan, and the Detroit Free-Press’ Helene St. James. Khan and Custance both mention Hainsey and Girardi, too.
Wizards star John Wall wants Paul George in a Wizards uniform. He told Marc Spears of ESPN's the Undefeated that he's been lobbying the Pacers All-Star to ask for a trade to Washington. George has made it clear to Indiana that he will not stay with the team once he becomes a free agent next summer. While his reported preference is to become a Laker, Wall seems to have sensed an opportunity to build a contender for the Eastern Conference crown in Washington. "I am talking to some guys – Paul," Wall said while attending the NBA Awards. "I know his ultimate goal of where he wants to be. I'm trying to see if we can make something happen." Spears reports that sources have told him the Wizards have
• Joined ESPN in 2009 • An FIA accredited F1 journalist since 2011 Sebastian Vettel says he does not expect his rivalry with Lewis Hamilton to change dramatically following the events of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, saying "there is not much to sort out". This year's title battle turned nasty on Sunday after Vettel and Hamilton collided twice behind the Safety Car. The first incident saw Vettel hit the rear of Hamilton's car as he expected it to accelerate out of Turn 15 ahead of the race's second restart, which in turn triggered the second incident in which Vettel pulled alongside Hamilton to remonstrate before swerving into him. After the race, Hamilton labelled the incident as "disgraceful"
The Calgary Flames officially introduced their two newest players on Monday afternoon when they welcomed starting goaltender Mike Smith and defenseman Travis Hamonic to the organization. The addition of Hamonic gives the Flames what should be an outstanding top-four on defense as he joins a blue line that already features Mark Giordano, T.J. Brodie and Dougie Hamilton. While that defense might be one of the better ones in the Western Conference, the Flames are hopeful that Smith can help solidify a goaltending position that was a major question mark this past season and a significant weakness for much of it.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver isn't a fan of the NBA draft lottery's current setup. Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports NBA commissioner Adam Silver isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind. Maybe the only commissioner who doesn’t get booed when he walks to the podium for a draft, Silver has passed with flying colors so far while leading the Association thanks to his openness and willingness to tackle problems head on. Soon he might address the NBA draft lottery. Silver recently had a candid interview with the "The Dan Patrick Show" on the topic: “We put the lottery in place precisely (to prevent against tanking), and that was well over 30 years ago because teams seemingly had this huge incentive to finish
Was Jordan Spieth’s celebration after holing a bunker shot in a playoff to win the Travelers Championship on Sunday the proper decorum for the moment? Phil Mickelson is among the majority that believe so. Mickelson appeared Monday on “The Dan Patrick Show” to discuss several topics. Among them: Spieth’s hole-out and the ensuing celebration that included an excited club throw by Spieth, rake toss by Spieth’s caddie Michael Greller, and chest bump between the two. Of course, most golf fans loved the reaction, which certainly ranks among the best golf celebration moments in recent history. But then again, there always will be some naysayers. To those people, Mickelson provided his defense of Spieth’s
The NBA’s most controversial family made an appearance on the most recent edition of “Monday Night Raw.” LaVar Ball showed up, along with sons Lonzo Ball and LaMelo Ball at Staples Center in Los Angeles just days after the Lakers selected Lonzo with the No.2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. The Ball family was a part of a segment with Intercontinental Champion The Miz as guests on “Miz TV.” They even got their own theme music as they walked down towards the ring, and not surprisingly LaVar did most of the talking.
BOSTON — Sonny Gray is not what the Red Sox need. As of Monday, the power rankings of their trade targets should go as such: 1. Third baseman 2. Reliever 3. Back-end starter. When he was addressing the addition of Doug Fister three days ago, Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski noted that a premier starter is not what he lacks. “Unlike maybe some other clubs, I don't believe that we need to add a top-of-the-rotation-type starter,” Dombrowski said. “We have [Chris] Sale. I think David Price continues to make strides to come back. His stuff is good he's just got to get back. [Drew] Pomeranz has thrown well for us. [Eduardo] Rodriguez has thrown well. We know Rick Porcello is a good
