Bolt loses gold after team-mate fails drug test Bolt loses gold after team-mate fails drug test
- January 28, 2017

Carter and his attorneys still have 20 days to submit an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, a process that can cost up to $13 million. In life, such things happen, so if it is the truth no matter what happens, Bolt is ready to return back his medal, it's not a problem for Bolt. (more...)
LeBron James miffed with direction of slumping Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James miffed with direction of slumping Cleveland Cavaliers
- January 28, 2017

James is hoping for a player like former Cavalier Matthew Dellavedova that can orchestrate the offense when he and Kyrie Irving are off the floor. And Krause always had the audacity to act more important than Jordan. The Celtics, now in third, have a number of defensive liabilities, but have no answer guarding Irving, James or Love. So there is merit to the thought that the Cavaliers should seek out an able-bodied contributor. (more...)
Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is likely to miss entire 2017 season Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is likely to miss entire 2017 season
- January 28, 2017

That gives the early timetable for a return to be around March, 2018. "When people talked about Minnesota, they traded the one and the four for Sam Bradford , the reason why was they thought it was at least a year injury", Carter said. Bradford established a single-season record for completion percentage (71.6) while passing for 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns against just five interceptions. (more...)

England beat India in first T20 England beat India in first T20
- January 28, 2017

Raina, though, hasn't had much cricket coming into the tournament. As such, the Indian squad assembled for this T20I series is not going to be able to match England's firepower. So I have seen the way he bowls. "Opening is the kind of slot where you have to back your players for a while". "That doesn't concern me a great deal", the England captain said. (more...)
Years Later, Venus And Serena Williams Meet Again In Australian Open Final Years Later, Venus And Serena Williams Meet Again In Australian Open Final
- January 27, 2017

Venus Williams hasn't returned to a final at Melbourne Park. "It's wonderful to be here to start the year out - I want to go further, I'm not happy with this, but I'm so happy to be in a position to go further". I feel no matter what that we have both won after all we have been through. This forced Serena to be on her toes from the very beginning. "Even though it was Serena , I'm still a competitor".

Clemson will travel to Louisville for their first ACC game of the year on Sept 16. Remember that nail-biter NC State game from past year? Florida State will start the 2017 in the top 5 in at least two different polls, but the ACC's coaches picked the Seminoles to finish No. (more...)
Overreactions: There's no stopping Matt Ryan and the Falcons Overreactions: There's no stopping Matt Ryan and the Falcons
- January 27, 2017

Just six other QBs have notched seven-plus TDs and zero INTs in a playoff run, and they all won Super Bowls. But we've seen this before in the Super Bowl and it usually doesn't work out well for the team with the best offense. Ryan, 31, is making his first Super Bowl appearance. That must drive people nuts. "I've gotten to know him a little bit since I've been in the league", Ryan said. (more...)

- January 27, 2017

Australia's Travis Head (L) runs between the wickets during the fifth one-day global (ODI) cricket match against Pakistan. Warner's sixth hundred of the 2016-17 calendar ties an ODI record set by Kumar Sangakkara, while Head's maiden global 50-over century suggests a destructive partnership that could be in place for this year's Champions Trophy.

Washington would like to sign Kirk Cousins to 'long-term' deal
- January 27, 2017

If Cousins were to receive the franchise tag again in 2017, Washington's front office would have essentially signed him to a two-year deal worth close to $44 million. The Pro Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, January 29, 2017, at 8:00 PM and will be played at the Orlando Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida. "I anticipate on blocking for him next year, him repeating his performance and ending back up in the Pro Bowl". (more...)

The difference between the Chiefs and Patriots against the Steelers
- January 26, 2017

There's nothing quite like the feeling of knowing that you are going to a Super Bowl for a fan and the Patriots are going back once again. The three-time Super Bowl MVP was only hit three times and sacked twice; in all, he has thrown 22 touchdowns against the Steelers since they last intercepted one of his passes. (more...)
Hull City vs. Manchester United: Jose Mourinho's Key EFL Cup Presser Quotes
- January 26, 2017

Martial has struggled to secure regular game time at Old Trafford this season under Jose Mourinho and his representatives have reportedly been trying to push through a temporary move away in January. Only once has this depleted Hull team really rolled over and let themselves down and that came via a 6-1 hammering at Bournemouth, having been locked at 1-1 prior to the Cherries scoring twice just before the break.

Carl Frampton vs Leo Santa Cruz
- January 26, 2017

The large Irish community in NY joined forces with a substantial contingent of Frampton's supporters who made the journey across the Atlantic to roar the 29-year-old onto a majority-decision victory last summer at at the Barclays Centre. The 27-year-old says he'll have it in Las Vegas, his "second hometown", on Saturday night. "Last time there were a lot of excuses thrown about afterwards; making excuses for his performance and things that went wrong". (more...)
Kawhi Leonard reflects on another classic battle with LeBron James Kawhi Leonard reflects on another classic battle with LeBron James
- January 26, 2017

Yet if Cleveland really wants to make a change, there are internal solutions - if only the Cavs are willing to find them. I agree. Felton would have looked good with the Cavs. Given the Cavs' losing streak, resting James against the 17-27 Kings doesn't seem as logical as it might have before Monday's New Orleans loss. For the season, they had hitherto done the same in 14 other occasions; in all those times, they emerged with the victory. (more...)
Goldberg Came Back to WWE Raw Goldberg Came Back to WWE Raw
- January 26, 2017

Typically I revolt against part-timers stealing the thunder from those wrestling over 200 times a year, but I can very easily make an exception this time around. Goliath match. Since the "notorious one" is a villain to the WWE fans, this might save the supposed face of the company from earning boos. However, if it is going to be done, the guy replacing him must have three major qualities. (more...)

- January 25, 2017

I am not alarmed by it. "I'm not alarmed by it, that's football", Tomlin said . "Obviously I'm going to meet with him directly like I meet with all players and proceed accordingly, like I do with all players". "We'll see where it transpires". Plus, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown will be back and the young defense is only going to get better. Tomlin continued by saying he's not too anxious about it. (more...)

My head has been turned by the fantastic achievements of this young lady". (more...)
Nadal rolls back the years in Australia Nadal rolls back the years in Australia
- January 25, 2017

Nadal, searching for a revival after injuries wrecked last season, was tested by France's Gael Monfils before winning 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 to book a last-eight clash with Milos Raonic. Serena will face ninth-seeded Johanna Konta in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. The Frenchman then took a lead on return as he fired a scorching forehand down the line victor, but huge hitting just caused errors from Monfils in the next couple of points as Nadal raced to 40-15.

Rafael Nadal asked awkward girlfriend question after win
- January 25, 2017

In all, Zverev came to the net 118 times , winning 65 of them, and forced Murray into numerous errors just by the sheer fact he was coming forward and then by his ability to play some lovely, smart volleys. Konta's current hot streak brought her the Sydney International title last week, while she has developed a taste for giant-killing in the previous year, winning seven of 11 matches with world top-10 opponents.

All-Swiss and all-American semis set at Australian Open All-Swiss and all-American semis set at Australian Open
- January 25, 2017

Williams took a 4-1 lead in the second set and had her serve broken when she served for the match at 5-3. This is despite the seven-time grand slam victor being one of the game's most prominent players over the past two decades. There were seven service breaks in the first set - with Williams getting the decisive one in the 12th game. Vandeweghe - who packs a huge serve and forehand - upset 2016 French Open victor Garbine Muguruza of Spain 7-5 6-0 to land in a maiden grand slam semifinal ... (more...)
