We all remember Kevin Ware going down to one of the most brutal injuries in recent sports history during last year's NCAA Tournament, when he snapped his leg closing out on a shot in the Cardinals' Elite Eight win over Duke. Well, now, he's back on the court and back to dunking, just six months after the injury occurred.
New York Yankees shortstop and captain Derek Jeter has been placed on the disabled list again and, according to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, the trip to the DL will "effectively end his season."
John Sterling, the voice of the New York Yankees, spoke today with Armen Williams about the altercation between Joe Girardi and Buck Showalter, as well as the culture of sign stealing in baseball, and other topics. Take a listen to Sterling with Armen below.
With the NFL season finally here after seven long, cold months, there is only one way to properly ring in the new NFL year: by live tweeting the marquee matchup between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens.
Finally, it has arrived! The NFL season is upon us, and the season kicks off tonight with an excellent ballgame between the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens. For the first time in ages, the first game of the year will not be held on the home field of the defending champions, as the Baltimore Orioles totally ruined that for the Ravens by having a game.
Mariano Rivera can even make some of the worst moments in sports look good. That's what he did in 2002, when he breezed through the National League All-Star team in the ninth inning of the All-Star Game, the game that would go down in infamy as the game that ended in a tie.
Every year, so-called experts take their shot at trying to predict who will have success in the upcoming NFL season. They're never entertaining, and they're almost always wrong. My philosophy is, if you're going to be wrong, you'd better be entertaining. With that in mind, try not to take this year's NFC South preview too seriously.
The NCAA is one of the most powerful organizations in the world, protecting the virtue of the student athlete by not allowing them to be corrupted by such things as money, only filling them with sportsmanship and education while making billions from the work of these modern day indentured servants. Today, the NCAA cracked down on Johnny Manziel by suspending him for one half of Texas A&M's season opening game against Rice.
NFL season is right around the corner, which means that it's time for everyone to make really inaccurate predictions about the upcoming season. Today, I break down the NFC West, a division that was once the NFL's punchline, but may be the best in the league today.
Before becoming the greatest closer of all time and "The Hammer Of God," Mariano Rivera was a starter looking to lock teams down at the beginning of games. The number 30 moment of our countdown comes from 1995, when he saw his first success as a Major League starter, getting his first win against the Oakland Athletics.
Mariano Rivera has used his legendary cut fastball to break a lot of bats during his career, most of which are presumably discarded like other useless pieces of wood. The Minnesota Twins, however, decided to turn some of those broken bats into a gift for Rivera during this season's farewell tour, making him a rocking chair out of them. The "Chair Of Broken Dreams" is the number 31 moment of our countdown.
