No offense to any colleagues working the Open right now, but would really like to see this thing go to a tiebreak.
Taking my first stab at record projections for this season. Really want to give New Orleans the 8th seed but do I bump out Dallas or GSW?
Has society always been like this, or are we getting weirder?
Zach Morris is now 40. I officially feel old.
The past few days remind us that there are sides of the internet that are sooooooo much creepier than even the creepy ass internet we know
I guess if there's teriyaki flavored soda... http://t.co/VRfEuFyc0e
Golden, on WQAM: "I need to challenge the coaches to look at everything we're doing."
Rafael Soriano is like Indiana Jones, man. He craves the boulder barreling down the hill on him.
Yes,this 31-13 loss was competitive most of night.But this is the sad reality: Of the last 7 games UM has played,it has lost 5 by 18 or more
Cannot confirm or deny that I wrote Yahoo!’s fantasy draft grades. http://t.co/KD2boB06Wp
Tenenbaum family reunion seems to be going just fine. http://t.co/Aa8aOfwsO0
I would buy and build a Springfield Lego set.
OK this is actually dope that they made an episode entirely out of Legos.
If you think this girl looks like Kelly Kapowski, you're blind.
Every Down Duke Johnson
Canes need an answer here. Go get’m rook…
In this episode, Bart gets the ability to make people pregnant by voodoo and Fat Tony kidnaps him to make his horse pregnant.
Defense keeping Canes in the game. D’Onofrio besting Petrino.
Numerous Jazz players tweeting about Santa Barbara - P3 time - less than a month till training camp
Seriously, if you were/are a fan of Saved by the Bell, turn on Lifetime. Train wreck isn't even the word
The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is so godawful that it's actually fantastic.
Getting the sense that Canes fans aren't enamored with their coaching staff...
So if Louisville wins, does Bobby Petrino at least wait til sun-up to bolt?
This, plus Nick Novak and Kansas City. http://t.co/SNetHcsbV9
wow this episode is terrible
Rick Fox in in the house at Dodger Stadium. So is Kareem....Must be Lakers Day
Saddened by the news of Eric Wade's passing. A talented photographer with an amazing heart and an infectious smile. http://t.co/M91TWKWZFg
What about Rondo for Cody Zeller (so many Zellers!), Kemba Walker and MKG? I'm just trying to brainstorm here. Don't hate me.
Louisville 93 yds on its 1 TD drive on offense, but 72 yards on six other possessions.Difference,of course,is 97-yd Louisville KO return.
Truth is, Azarenka is the only one with a shot at beating Serena. So it's good she is still in the draw.
Hey guys, just being a passenger on the open road. http://t.co/kQD6njb819
UM 0 for 11 on third down in bowl vs. Louisville & 0 for 6 tonight.... UM down 14-10 at half...Kaaya 8-12-84 yds... Duke:13 carries, 54 yds
Burning question: Does Derek Carr wear one glove like big brother?
I don't know if Krunic is going to win this match but she is showing some huge Cojones on a big stage vs 2-time finalist Azarenka
I'm now reenacting scene from Baby Boy where @therealtaraji is cleaning up the living room to "Wishing on a Star", only I'm wiping up sh-t
My father's ability to talk to randoms is amazing. He's in the hall of fame for stop-and-chatting.
Homer is going to dinner with Lisa and Marge sees him wearing a suit. Marge: "Homer! You look like an NBA coach!"
The Ville takes one to the house. Remember when the U was a football upgrade to the ACC?
That kickoff return was what Richard Gordon was supposed to do.
season to start! (2/2)
Can we please stop putting old people in commercials?
What about Gay (expiring), McLemore and Stauskas for Rondo/Wallace? Am I doing this right?
This ACC game should be Miami at UConn.
Top 3 teams in pace are USA & their two opponents thus far. Their pace would be about 5 poss/48 faster than Sixers' No. 1 pace last season.
Of course there's a growing disparity between Power 5 teams and the rest. One is now semi-professional football. The other is college.
If it becomes relevant, lack of size/post-up bruiser among core US guards/wings helps Spain's chances. US could rejigger rotation, of course
Between Petrino and Pitino, Louisville has quite the extramarital affair tandem.
Just wrapped Spain-Brazil. Pau loving that shorter FIBA line. Spain so good at creating off-ball threats on the weak side.
Everyone was so open for Miami there. I blame D’Onofrio.
How long has Clive Walford been at UM?
Ok, if I'm going to rip D'Onofrio, I have to say that was a really nice defensive adjustment.
Oh, God, that player’s hair was glorious.
Watching Faried makes me think of 1 thing-the Nuggets should have kept Karl and that team (mostly) intact. They were uniquely suited to win.
The key to beating them will be someone getting a big early lead. Leading by 5 at half is meaningless. Up 15 at any time has to be the goal.
Impressed with Irving's on ball defensive quickness, Curry's willingness to make the right play and not just take shots, Rose's athleticism.
Faried can struggle with structure, but his fit on this team and this coach can not be overstated. Relentless energy, surrounded by talent.
AD has been so impressive with his PASSING, making easy plays and quality/fast reads. He has every chance to pass KLove as world's best PF.
Of course they can be beat in one game. Of course they may have a bad shooting night. When is that ever not the case, for any team nowadays?
Adding bigs gives Coach K lots of options, he can throw out so many lineups with different looks.Big, small, quick, long, and always skilled
Their depth and their style of play is like the Nuggets from two seasons ago, compared to this field. Hard to match for 40 minutes.
FTR, The Seminole "Nation" doesn't support this. Majority, which live in Oklahoma, came out against mascots in 2013. https://t.co/530qdDYWww
Some quick Team USA thoughts; I still think the most likely scenario is they win Gold with relative ease. Brilliant coach as a motivator.
It's 2:20 a.m. in Granada & before I go to bed, I have to listed to my iPod for a while in order to get "Sube La Copa" out of my head.
That was a 12 play, 93 yd. drive for Louisville to go up 7-0. LBs beaten in coverage several times. No pass rush. Missed tackles.Same story.
Same old Mark D'Onofrio
This isn't news but: It's really, really difficult to find a Rondo trade that makes sense for both teams.
Sixth pick in a modified PPR (.5 points per reception) draft. Who should I target? BK
Miami is one of the more easily hateable college football teams out there. Not as hateable as Notre Dame, but approaching that level.
Nice to hear Lou Holtz take a hardline stance on concussions. Wonder what he thought as a coach.
RIP JIMI JAMISON. Memphian, and real man of genius.
River Cats threatening. tying run in scoring position, winning run at 1st. Daric Barton at plate with 1 out.
So far the Simpsons are promoting the upcoming season with a Family Guy crossover episode and somebody dying. Sad.
The 6pm hour of M*A*S*H reruns on MeTV started over at the beginning of the series today. Lots of funny in that era of the show
Adam Dunn on playing in Oakland: "That’s the best crowd I ever played against, I mean, played with, for, whatever it is... Unbelievable"
Someday my tombstone will read, “Sat a triple-crown-winning, two-time-reigning-MVP, first-round-pick in the biggest game of the year."
Big shout out to Brad Ausmus for the Belichickian suggestion that he might give Miggy four or five days off to rest his injured ankle, btw.
Interesting debate: Who's higher on the NBA greatness ladder, Patrick Ewing or Dirk Nowitzki?
Who has two thumbs and already regrets benching Miguel Cabrera in fantasy (with a playoff spot on the line) this week?
Forgot to mention...they're headed to extras at Raley Field.
Coley, Berrios on punt returns; Coley, Dorsett on kickoff returns. Hertelou and Pierre starting DTs when Miami plays 4-3.
River Cats and Reno Aces tied at 1 in season finale. A must win game for both teams for playoffs. DRAMA
For national tv baseball games the home lead announcer should do an inning ..add some insight---different feel....to mix things up.
Fullback (when UM uses one) also listed as either/or with Regula and Tucker and no definitive starter...WRs: Dorsett, Coley, Lewis.
... Gadbois first-team at RT (backup most of camp); Bush, Crawford at safety; McCord at end spot opposite Chickillo in 4-3.
... Presuming depth chart means starters, then Gunter and Burns beat out Tracy Howard,Elder, Crawford for starting CB jobs.All should play.
UM releases depth chart an hour before kickoff which has starters at every position except one OLB spot (Owens or Armbrister).
Happy 901 Day, y'all.
Surprisingly, Don Mattingly didn’t mention Clayton Kershaw or Yasiel Puig when talking about the Dodgers already having three Kobes.
Also opinions from Mike Stanton, Art Howe, & showing a ton of the Luhnow press conference. Informative with opinions from those in the game.
Safety Don Jones, cut by Miami yesterday, was claimed by New England, which plays the Dolphins on Sunday.
Meanwhile, time to take my first look at fantasy football cheat sheets for my draft in an hour. Hope I can get Joe Horn again.
And of course, my updated note: This is the 1,437th consecutive slow news day for sports in the Bay Area.
What's striking to me is how many people have the exact wrong scouting report on Swoopes, presumably for, um, superficial reasons.
You have to go with the guy you believe gives you the best chance to win. Simple as that.
Argentina head coach Lamas after today’s game: Philippines are the craziest and weirdest team I’ve ever faced in my career as head coach
Which isn't to say Swoopes can't be good. It's just that he hasn't provided any tangible evidence of it yet.
Mattingly hopes Dodgers play like Kobe has done in playoffs. "We have 3 Kobes -- Ramirez, Kemp, Gonzalez." He didn't mention Puig.
Juan Carlos Navarro post-game: “The truth is we played a good game against a tough team. We are happy about that, but now we look forward.”
I find it amusing when people describe themselves as "happily married." If you're married, isn't the "happily" implied?
Carr is the QB the Raiders had to pick. If you delay a decision on the starter, that means you're going with the other guy.
To be clear, of the three Ash head-injury incidents (BYU, KSU & UNT), the only time Texas has confirmed a concussion was the first one.
I'm getting a huge kick out of Indiana's head coach. Who knew Mrs. Wilson from Dennis the Menace could coach?
Look out Eastern Conference. Pau Gasol had 26 today and 9 rebounds. He also hit 3 for 5 from 3. Ok, look out USA in a week or two
Media Day is four weeks from today
Hunter Pence is a bad, bad man
Brazil got blown out by Spain. Raul Neto played 16 minutes, shot 1 for 3 and had 2 points, 2 rebounds and 2 steals
France blew out Egypt today - Rudy Gobert played 18 minutes had 6 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block and no fouls. 2 of 4 from the line.
Good job Sky selling the idea Arsenal fans are worried they only have 10 mins to get Welbeck when we're actually waiting for time to expire.
The new Bull Pau Gasol is averaging 23.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, & 2.3 blocks through 3 games for Spain.
Through 3 games, Tiago Splitter is averaging 7.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1 assist, & 1 steal in 21.3 minutes per game.
Final: Spain 82, Brazil 63. Claver finishes with a 1 trillion line, only getting in at the end. Pau Gasol was fantastic with 26 p, 9 r, 3 b.
Keep hearing Esa Ahmad likely addition to OSU class and could replace Mickey Mitchell who de-committed.
Pau finished with 26 on 8-10 shooting, 9 boards and 3 blocks in Spain's blowout win over Brazil.
Gasol's Spain the best team ever (outside of the U.S.) to me. Sorry, Yugoslavia.
Had been hearing for some time Carlton Bragg was leaning towards Kentucky. Surprised OSU not in top-5.
Pau Gasol ended with 26 points (FG: 11/15, 2PT: 8/10, 3PT: 3/5, FT: 1/2), 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 blocks and 32 of efficiency
Spain just put together possibly its best game since the last Olympic Games.
Pau Gasol (26 points, 9 boards, 3 blocks) helps Spain stay undefeated with an 82-63 victory over Brazil. Splitter finished w/ 6 pts, 4 rebs.
The Gasols have no business being on the court this late in the game with a 23-point lead.
At this point, you have to consider Spain the favorites over Team USA.
Brewers are playing pathetic baseball right now...
Baylor has Northwestern State, Buffalo and bye next 3 weeks. Rest those transverse processes, Bryce Petty
According to a consultant of Varese, the Italians had an agreement with Thanasis Antetokounmpo before he decided to go to NBA training camp
Brazil once more had trouble on offense in the 3Q, as Spain outscored them 21-15. Navarro with 10 points.
Jason Hammel cruising through 4 shut-out innings, only 51 pitches so far.
