4 reasons we’re so happy Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL

Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Even though he continued to entertain us during his retirement by starting a fire with one of his dreads in the wilderness with Bear Grylls and riding a bike around Houston, Scotland, for a Skittles Super Bowl commercial, football wasn’t the same without his antics. Whether Lynch was leaping over the goal line or repeating I’m just here so I don’t get fined so often to reporters that he eventually trademarked the phrase, he was never afraid to be himself. There are many memorable moments from Lynch’s career that kept us waiting eagerly to see what he would do or say next. We’re looking forward to adding many more to this collection from Lynch’s new chapter with the Oakland Raiders. Watt is an outside backer, unlike his hell-raising defensive end of a big brother. He was a college starter for only one year at Wisconsin, but […]

Mike Mayock thinks Reuben Foster is still a top-10 NFL draft pick after failed drug test

Authentic Rene Robert Jersey Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster revealed Thursday that he failed a drug test at the NFL Combine, but NFL Network’s Mike Mayock said Friday that he doesn’t believe it will do much to Foster’s draft stock. Foster blamed food poisoning for forcing him to hydrate to the point that his urine sample was reported as diluted at the NFL Combine. The league treats that as a failed test, and Foster was later sent home from the event after a heated argument with a hospital worker. Authentic Andre Hal Jersey After Mixon was drafted, Adam Schefter gave us an idea of just how many teams said they would not take him. One AFC executive told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Bob McGinn, I don’t have the confidence in him to draft him. We can get another back. He added, You may turn down a special guy but the special guy’s got risks. I couldn’t do it. Another executive told McGinn, […]

Giants would be smart to sign LeGarrette Blount

Authentic Cameron Fleming Jersey LeGarrette Blount is still a free agent after the Patriots decided to move on from last years rushing touchdown leader. He might not be on the market much longer. The New York Giants and Blount reportedly have mutual interest,according to NFL Networks Ian Rapoport. The Giants would be smart to sign him to bolster their 29th-ranked rushing attack. He feels like his age isnt slowing him down. On that point, I feel great,Blount said in February. Im in amazing shape. I feel like I could play 100 more years if I have to. I couldnt eat much, but I had to drink water and Gatorade, Foster told Rapoport. Then a few coaches said something about me being too light. And Im a coach-pleaser. I dont care what everybody thinks, but I care what coaches think. So I drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up. Then I went in there, drinking and drinking […]

Dan Rooney’s greatest gift to Pittsburgh: Transforming steel town into City of Champions

“We’ve lot of won a big games in New England,” he said. “We’ve won a lot of games through the years. A lot of great wins, a lot of team victories. But you know, a night off training camp is pretty close to some of our biggest wins.” From there, Belichick thanked the coaches and praised the state of Ohio — where his NFL head coaching career began with the Browns. He waved through an applause while exiting stage left. Tim Hinton, the Ohio State executive director for football relations, then took the mic and called for an encore. “If you could take a minute for one more applause for the best coach in the United States of America?” Hinton asked. Everyone obliged, and few could argue at this point. Even if he’ll never admit it, it’s clear Belichick is enjoying this victory lap. When will it end? “Sometimes kids think they know it all,” Jim Kelly said then. “Chad’s […]

Silvio Berlusconi finally sells AC Milan.

After three years of headaches with multiple bidding groups, Silvio Berlusconi’s company Fininvest has finally completed the sale of AC Milan. The new owner is Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux, a holding company led by Chinese businessman Yonghong Li. The Pacers end up with the No. 7 seed and a date with the Cavaliers. Indiana found its identity right in time. The Bulls get No. 8 and a series against the Celtics. What a weird season they’ve had. Here’s the full schedule for the first round, tipping off Saturday afternoon. The other important part of Wednesday night was ironing out the NBA draft lottery odds. The Knicks and Magic hurt their odds badly by winning on the final night. The Sixers, unsurprisingly given their experience in this game, came out ahead. The full draft order has some ties that need to be resolved, but Portland is on track to have three picks in the first round. Elite Womens Len Dawson Jersey […]

Dwyane Wade started his 2017 playoffs getting blocked by the rim

Game Womens Tre Mason Jersey Usually, Dwyane Wade is money in the bank on a breakaway with just one man between him and the rim. But Father Time stepped in to intervene on Sunday when he came up short on a one-handed dunk with only the 59 Isaiah Thomas in his way. Wade came away with a steal in the passing lane and took just one dribble before elevating over Thomas in the second quarter of the Chicago Bulls first-round playoff matchup against the Boston Celtics. But the ball rocked right off the front of the rim and into Al Horfords hands. Antetokounmpo has to have a standing reach of, like, 96 for this photo to be possible, I think. Lets say he has pulled the rim down by four inches or so, and there are actually two or three between his feet and the ground, which on closer inspection, seems likely. Add all that up, and its still absurd. […]

Switzer was ready to run the Boston Marathon, coach Briggs was ready to support her

The pair practiced together and when Switzer sailed past the finish line of a 26-mile run with ease and decided to tack on an extra five miles for good measure, she proved to her coach she was ready. Switzer was ready to run the Boston Marathon, coach Briggs was ready to support her — but the world wasn’t. Kathrine knew she needed to register for the race officially, but didn’t dare use her full name for fear of the attention. Instead she registered as “K.V. Switzer,” and traveled with Arnie to Boston. Chuck Bednarik Womens Jersey When the race began, Kathrine felt welcome. Several fellow runners said it was great to see a woman running along with them, but this experience was quickly sobered into the race. Switzer was chased by a race official who tried to stop her competing. “A big man, a huge man, with bared teeth was set to pounce, and before I could react he grabbed […]

Kuchar spun his tee shot on the par-3 16th directly into the cup.

Matt Kuchar made the first hole-in-one of the Masters on Sunday evening, shortly after 5 p.m. ET. Kuchar’s ace came on the par-3 16th hole Augusta National Golf Club. CBS’ Verne Lundquist said it was the 18th ace in Masters history. The 16th hole is playing at 170 yards this week. It’s been among the easier holes on the course, with 40 birdies made there in competition so far. But nobody had aced it — or any other hole on the course — until Kuchar knocked his tee shot in on Sunday. Kudos to these two fans who brought it to the seventh inning of Friday night’s Twins vs. White Sox game and kept us on the edge of our seats. In the video, the guy on the right had the clear advantage: He finished his beverage first, and he had a lighter touch on each of his flips. Better technique and fundamentals are usually key. But, man, the guy […]

The league cited a conflict of interest as its reasoning.

The NBA issued a memo to team broadcasters on Monday, stripping them of their power to vote for league awards, according to Indiana Pacers play-by-play commentator Mark Boyle. The message cited a conflict of interest, with team broadcasters having a direct impact on local players’ accolades, which in turn could impact their money made in the long term. Limited Wayne Chrebet Jersey What else do you expect from a legendary wrestler who has spent his entire life trying to get people worked up? Getting cheers and boos is what he lives for. Flair still keeps up with WWE and notes that his favorites also happen to be his friends. “My favorite is still Triple H but I like [Randy] Orton a lot.” In the early 2000s Flair, Triple H, Randy Orton, and Batista formed Evolution, a group that dominated wrestling by touting its past, present, and future. Flair excelled as the elder statesmen ready to pass the torch. It’s a […]

The Golden Gophers were one of the most pleasant surprises of the 2016-17 season

One of the most infamous passages in sports history happened at the end of the gold medal basketball game in the 1972 Munich Olympics. The U.S. had effectively won the gold medal when Doug Collins sank two free throws to make the game 50-49 with under a second to go, but a series of bizarre events, including intervention from then-FIBA president Renato William Jones gave the USSR three seconds left on the clock. Limited Kids Valtteri Filppula Jersey This continued once again after a failed inbounds pass when the FIBA chief decided to give ANOTHER three seconds to the Soviets. They would eventually score to win and the USA refused to accept their silver medals. No email would have helped. The Golden Gophers were one of the most pleasant surprises of the 2016-17 season, but expectations will be higher for Richard Pitino and company now. Thankfully, Pitino returns every player outside of senior Akeem Springs from the team that did […]
