If Tiger Woods created an explosion in the next generation of golfers why didn't the Williams sisters do the same for tennis?
You guys ARE getting up with me at 6 am to watch Croatia, right? I want somebody live tweeting with me.
Jaye Marie Green, who's playing with Stoll, holed a pitch for eagle to get to -6. Impressive golfer.
this ref and Ed Hoculi should have a rocky mountain guns show standoff
Clarification: Henry Walker is former Celtics and Knicks forward Bill Walker.
The only Syracuse-Villanova sporting event I want to hear about is basketball. Get serious
And the #1 sign vinyl has made a comeback? You can buy albums at Whole Foods. AK
Wishing Fox Sports played the Aquinas-Heritage game live and put the Rays-Red Sox on tape delay.
How did they come up with defensive PI on that call? lol
Stoll made a great par on 11, with a long downhill chip. Still at +1.
hahaha these officials are just as sorry as UConn is
Does LSU know we blatantly stole their midfield design? Or did they assume we're a high school program?
Lakers workout guard Bobby Brown. He's under a $1+ million deal in China but has NBA out clause.
"BEWARE," says the adorable, baby blue, puppy-dog eyes at UConn's 50-yard line.
Gigi Stoll bogeyed 10th and is in trouble on 11 after missing fairway.
At South Philly Supersite, the Dobbins PA guy is imploring someone -- ANYONE?!? -- to put on the lights. This is getting comical.
Why has the USA become so terrible in Tennis. Llikely Serena Williams will be only American to make 3rd round of US Open men or women?
I shouldn't say I "expected" anything w/the Smith suspension. Better said: I accounted for up to a 10-game ban in my 49ers Super Bowl pick.
there are good players in Conn, not a bunch, but some....and you have Mass, NY and Jersey...should be able to have a good program
Others to generate interest in former NBAer Henry Walker: Kings, Pacers and Heat. Leaning towards camp invite from Grizzlies.
I used to cover HS football in Conn...been on UConn campus many times. Why can't this football program recruit?
What's worse than being awful? Being UNDISCIPLINED and awful. UConn, COME ON DOWN
World Cup has 17 ex-NBA draftees whose rights are held by teams, bringing total number of NBA players, ex-NBAers & draftees to a record 92.
On that Bills interception, Kaufusi had destroyed the left tackle. I may have sailed that throw high, too
Here are the players currently on World Cup rosters whose draft rights are held by a NBA team http://t.co/NmhUtLaFKt
Here are the current NBA Free agents and former NBA players currently on World Cup rosters... http://t.co/vzXMlkThOg
Per the NBA, a record 45 current NBA players will be featured on national team rosters for the FIBA World Cup, up from 44 in 2010.
I remember covering Remington Peck at Bingham High. He was a smoootthhhh bball player. I loved his game
Hearing that Henry Walker, out of the NBA since 2012, is working on a comeback and talking to Grizzlies about camp invite.
I'm giving this a half. If this continues, I'm going to lift weights and hit the treadmill
I'm on board with Gustavo Ayon. He's a Spur-y type player.
And as advertised, there is an opening in one corner to check out the Houston skyline, in case anyone forgets what the H in UH stands for.
The 49ers hoped and pushed for Smith to get ZERO games. He got a 9-game suspension. Reason that one out.
As far as first impressions of TDECU Stadium -- pretty slick. Love the end zones' downtown silhouette. Might crash the Bill Worrell suite.
Didn't Homer and Marge have a shotgun wedding at a casino?
Stoll has missed five of eight fairways, which makes things tough on this course, on these green.
I tend to take CFB extensions as seriously as Stanley Hudson does Schrute Bucks, or Ellis Redding does the word "rehabilitated."
Stunned at the news that Renan Barao if off the UFC 177 card in Sac. Replaced by Joe Soto. Barao in a Sacramento area hospital.
hahahah UConn is AWFUL
Gigi Stoll bogeyed the 9th, makes turn at +1 for day, even for tournament. Cut right now is at even.
Record 45 active NBA players are on National Team rosters competing in the World Cup. 22 NBA teams represented. Pacers have two: Scola,Rudež
Somewhat echoing @NBCDianna's last tweet - staff done deliberating for the day. Some decisions have been made; players to be told tomorrow.
What an amazing week!
Despite receiving interest from several teams, Ray Allen is still undecided about playing next season, per sources close to the situation.
Spurs, I'm told, still determined to re-sign Aussie C Aron Baynes but also like Mexico's Ayon, who's among top free agents in FIBA World Cup
Interesting rumble just dribbled in on eve of FIBA World Cup: Reigning champs San Antonio have registered interest in Mexico's Gustavo Ayon
Gigi Stoll birdies the par-5 fifth to get back to 1 under.
I don't understand how Goodell decides this. Seems random. But my point: Smith's penalty wasn't going to be off-set by last year's stint.
If you ask me, this shows the 49ers just wanted Smith to play for them, and rehab was a path to that. How does that off-set punishment?
49ers argued that Smith needed rehab to get better, not to play more football. So now they say he has to play football as much as possible?
Ex-Kentucky guard Joe Crawford last played for pro-team on May 2012. Told he's on road to comeback, hooping in Japan.
The 49ers and Smith said it was what he NEEDED to do. Which I believe. So to push that it off-sets future punishment is faulty logic.
The 49ers and their fans got the five-game rehab absence all wrong. Every response I'm getting reflects that you're still getting it wrong.
Grossman wanted to play tonight, as any player would. Porter acknowledges ankle improvement, but exercising caution as soreness still exists
Strath Haven starts the season with an 81-yard kickoff return for a TD by Alex Bratsis. Haven leads Dobbins, 7-0.
Oh, they're showing the Simpsons Movie on this marathon. That's dope.
I have no idea if this was part of Goodell's thinking, but the 49ers' argument that a PAID absence should negate a suspension was insulting.
Gigi Stoll bogeyed the par-4 fourth, dropping her to even par. Right now, the cutline is even.
The key words with Aldon Smith, I believe, are "multiple offenses." That has always been my focus in relation to NFL punishment.
4--If the 49ers didn't know Smith might get 8 or more games, they were being willfully naive.
3--I said weeks ago that this would in some way show whether Jed York has clout with Goodell. We just saw how much.
2--I never understood why 49ers people thought Smith's 5-game rehab absence would substitute for a suspension. He was PAID during rehab...
Some thoughts on Aldon Smith's 9-game suspension: 1--Since the appeals process is apparently over, NFL maybe initially wanted MORE than 9...
Zeid had right ft surgery Aug 6. After right ft recovers, surgery for left ft, then crutches, boot again. "Amazing" to be back in clubhouse.
Seems mind-blowing that Derrick Rose could play nine games in next 15 days after playing only 10 games in previous two NBA seasons.
Last two days spent paint-balling and go-karting. My life's work will be finding a place to both at once. Then I will have a fungasm.
Stoll hit green and 2-putted first two holes for pars, still at -1. Cut is still at even.
I've covered this tournament 12 years. Gigi Stoll has the biggest gallery for an amateur since Michelle Wie played her in '03.
Holiday weekend and for some of you payday. Be responsible. Make sure your seeds are fed before you reserve that VIP section tonight
How can we change this? I'm pro-Gilas! I can't control what the numbers say, good people of the Philippines.
My Tagalog is not strong, but it appears I have become an ememy of the state in the Philippines based on their poor pre-World Cup rating.
Ehimen Orukpe from Nigeria and Wichita State reaches contract with Penas Huesca in Spain LEB Gold, according to sources
Steelers announce they claimed B.W. Webb. Raise your hand if you're stunned a cut Cowboys defender got picked up by another team.
Crowd gathering at 1st tee to watch Gigi Stoll tee off in 2nd round of Portland Classic. http://t.co/6pnzUFcoLe
Besides Team USA and Spain, I’m looking forward to watching Greece (GIANNIS!) and Australia (EXUM!)
INTERN SEARCH: For all those who have asked me about careers in sports writing. I am hiring 2-3 interns. Send me a note and others please RT
It is gonna be an awesome
Just what Aldon Smith needed, more time off the field to get himself into trouble.
Hearing UO PA ace Don Essig is here. He hosted Carlota Ciganda, Belen Mozo, Azahara Munoz during '08 U.S. Women's Am in Eugene.
No Smith for nine, no Bowman for ...? Patrick Willis is great, but the Niners D is hurtin'.
Weekend project: 0 inbox
If no appeal (or unsuccessful), Aldon Smith will have missed 14 games, counting 5 from last season's rehab.
Emotional interview for Carlota Ciganda, who shot up leaderboard with a 65. Her coach of 20 years died of cancer three weeks ago.
Aldon Smith gets a nine-game suspension. I’m good with that.
This was the view from my window every morning, but sure I'm ready to rejoin society http://t.co/InReox2Eyc
I have to go home tomorrow but we still have all this wine to drink http://t.co/kOL2f3q9eQ
Thought eight was the outside edge for Aldon Smith suspension. NFL came in at nine. No real pattern here, anyway...
I love how literal people are on the Internet. (I don’t literally love it.)
Tim Duncan's honor thesis is essentially one long Kobe Bryant subtweet.
Crawford, last week: "Being on the practice squad is not being your best, but being on the practice squad might be the best thing for you."
No softballs on this Labor Day Friday. First question is about the Rutgers secondary getting worked over again. Good form.
Waiting on Kyle Flood's day-after conference call to begin in about 5 min. Rutgers had sort of a big win last night out west.
I'm sure some of the inquiries stem from calling Seaborn an impact newcomer in my schedule story. Well, that's true if the NCAA comes thru
In Portland Classic, Laura Diaz shot a 5-under 67 in morning wave, is at -9, a shot behind leader I.K. Kim, who's at -10.
There is no rhyme, reason or timetable as to how/when the NCAA Eligibility Center decides these things. Everyone is simply forced to wait.
The Vinnie Verno picks (1-0 so far) are UCLA -21 over Virginia, Marshall -24 over Miami (OH), and Utah St +6 over Tenn. You are welcome.
Lots of people asking about the last few days, so let's feed the beast: Monmouth is still awaiting a decision from the NCAA on Micah Seaborn
Incredible feat: @ALSassociation says $100.9M has been donated over the last month, 36x more than the same time last year ($2.8M).
