In an election year where Donald Trump has a legitimate shot at becoming president thanks to a WWE-style political campaign, why can’t a bona fide pro wrestler get elected to office? WWE Rhyno
”We go to different countries where football is blossoming, and we use it as an opportunity to teach kids football, spread football,” said Browns safety Johnson Bademosi, part of the dozen players in Cairo for the training camp.
Nash told ESPN that he plans to donate his brain and spinal cord to the CTE Center at Boston University and the Concussion Legacy Foundation after his death. Former WWE wrestler Chris Nowinski runs the foundation.
The National Football League should stop offering fantasy sports competitions to children because the games could lead some young sports fans down the path of gambling addiction, two nonprofit groups said in letters sent to Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Curry finished first in a vote by U.S. editors and news directors, with the results released Saturday. He joined LeBron James, Michael Jordan and Larry Bird as the only basketball players to win the honor in the 85 years of the award. Curry beat out golfer Jordan Spieth, who won two majors, and
The episode, ”America’s Game and the Iran Hostage Crisis,” was created by George Clooney’s Bluesmoke Productions and directed by actor Tate Donovan, who was in the Academy Award-winning film ”Argo.” It depicts how some smuggled-in audio tapes of Washington Redskins games and a Super Bowl helped keep the hostages connected to America during their captivity.
One of the most impactful scenes in ”Concussion” is a brief and wordless one: Just a few seconds, really, of a high school football team going through its drills.
We don’t know who these young, determined, helmeted kids are, but the message is sobering, especially if you’re a parent: Concussion-related brain damage from football is not merely a threat to the professionals featured in the film. It’s a threat to our football-playing kids, too.
Platini, a France great in his playing career, was banned because of a $2 million payment he received from FIFA in 2011 which was judged by FIFA’s ethics commission to be a conflict of interest and disloyal to the world body.
“I’m gathering homeless people to take them out to eat at @yardhouse last night I did the same thing and the manager seemed distant in Serving the two last night so I said instead of just posting I’ll gather more and eat lunch with them at that Resturant. They need to
“Oh, it was a nice celebration. We do remember that stuff,” reigning MVPStephen Curry said Wednesday night after a 128-103 win over the Phoenix Suns. “We were kind of laughing at some of the stuff going on. It was a big game for them. Friday will be a big game for us.”
Remember when LeBron James was reviled for “The Decision?” Remember when fans in Boston couldn’t stand the guy, like ever? Remember when you looked at a new shoe line as just more building of an athlete’s brand? (What, you still do?)
After losing a bet to Golden State Warriors big man Draymond Green over the Ohio State-Michigan State game last month, James sent Green two cases of wine, according to Green.
But on Saturday, Smart arrived. The win over North Carolina announced he is here to build. He is here to energize an arena that lost so much mojo in recent seasons that the university hired a consultant to boost the Frank Erwin Center environment, complete with a DJ, pregame fireworks and something called a “Hype Squad.”
World’s most famous basketball club claims its winning streak is near 3,600 . but admit their nerves in follow-up tweet.
With each win, it seems the Golden State Warriors impress more and more people with their season-opening winning streak. On Tuesday night, the champs took down the Pacers in Indiana to run their record to 23-0 — 27 straight wins dating back to the end of last regular season.
Still too early to tell if they’ll be football’s latest trend.
DECEMBER 9TH, 2015
If you’re an admirer of the obsolete Predator or the vintage but still in-style (somewhat!) Copa Mundials, prepare yourself for what might be the latest trend in football footwear: The “Yeezy Ace.”
That’s right. Kanye West, along with footwear company Red Ribbon Recon and lifestyle blog “Kicks to the Pitch,” has teamed up with Adidas to transform a pair of his Yeezy Boost 350s trainers into a set of custom football boots as part of Copa Basel, a fan event held at Art Basel Miami.
The 38-year-old music icon has made a living writing lyrics for the better part of his career, and dipping his toes into the water of football fashion will surely be a test of whether he can measure up to the likes of other Adidas and Nike products.
For now, we’ll be looking out for leaked images of professionals actually experimenting with these things.
Top-seeded Clemson will play No. 4 Oklahoma at the Orange Bowl and No. 2Alabama gets No. 3 Michigan State at the Cotton Bowl in the New Year’s Eve semifinals of the College Football Playoff.
Goodell says Wednesday that he reached out last month to former players, coaches, general managers and others, ”to come together and try and see if we can study this and come up with proposals for the competition committee to consider.”
Goodell wants those people to examine how the play is officiated and coached, and ”how fans react to this.”
Adam Meyer offers his opinions on who you should start and sit for Week 13 in fantasy football
The Fitzmagic was real last week when the Jets quarterback pulled four passing TDs out of his hat. As for his opponent, the Giants secondary has allowed at least 300 passing yards in three of the past four games. As for Fitzpatrick’s consistency, he has thrown at least two touchdown passes in three of his last four contests.
If you drafted CJA in the first round of your 2015 fantasy draft and then dropped him after his slow start, don’t read this portion. Anderson had the best game of the season last week against the Patriots (113 yards and two TDs). In the snow, Anderson was the Rudolph to Gary Kubiak’s sleigh. As for the Chargers, the defense has allowed an opposing running back to tally at least 23 fantasy points in two of the past three games.
Thankfully, Andrew Luck missing more games didn’t seem to impact Hilton last week. Against the Buccaneers, Hilton was targeted a team-high 12 times and caught six passes for 95 yards with two touchdowns. Also, in the past six games, the Steelers have allowed an opposing wide receiver to produce at least 17 fantasy points. While Donte Moncrief could be that guy in Week 13, I think Hilton has the edge. Possibly both, too.
It was the Thursday night game against the Titans where we heard the news that Jacksonville would incorporate Thomas more in the red zone. That night, he made five receptions and scored a TD. Last week, Thomas caught nine passes for 116 yards and a TD. With Allen Hurns likely sidelined, Thomas will get a big boost in the rankings (as will Allen Robinson).
It seems to be three TDs or bust for T-Mobile this season. In every start, Taylor either accrues three passing touchdowns or is forced to settle for one (he was also saddled with a zero-TD game in Week 11). This week will likely be a bust for Taylor. The Texans have only allowed one passing TD since Week 7.
As much as it pains me to put Miller’s name on this side of the start/sit list, it must be done. Last week, he recorded five carries (two yards). Two weeks ago, he notched seven rushing attempts (44 yards). Sure, Bill Lazor has finally been relieved of his duties as the offensive coordinator, but I need to see results before I get fooled again. Also, the Ravens haven’t allowed more than 13 fantasy points to an opposing running back since Week 7 (Chris Johnson).
WR – Stefon Diggs, MIN (vs. SEA)
Antonio Brown, one of the most explosive receivers in the game, was held to only 51 receiving yards last week while under Richard Sherman’s thumb. Diggs will likely draw that type of attention this week. However, I don’t expect Jarius Wright to have a Markus Wheaton-type game with Diggs buried by Sherman.
TE – Charles Clay, BUF (vs. HOU)
Ever since his hot start in the first four weeks of the season, Clay has been ceramic (sorry). In his last five starts, Clay has compiled over 50 yards only once. We already established the fact that the Houston defense is stingy. When it comes to opposing TEs, they are even tougher. Only two TEs have scored against the Texans this season (Travis Kelce and Julius Thomas). Don’t expect Clay to join that short list.
I love cool names. I love foreign names that roll off the tongue. I love domestic names that show creativity and individuality. I grew up wishing my name were Dave or John, but I came to love having a different name, a name that differentiates me from others.
