ALL SPORTS RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Diamondbacks' media relations reps, Patrick O'Connell and Casey Wilcox, recently handed out a lined sheet of paper to every player on the team with a very simple request: a list of songs to add to the stadium mix for during batting practice. Straightforward and innocuous enough, right?
Well, nothing is innocuous in the hands of pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who's known...
HOOVER, Ala. Here are three things we learned from No. 6 LSU's 3-1 victory over Arkansas on Saturday, clinching the Tigers' berth in Sunday's SEC title game:
1. It's hard to beat a national powerhouse on the strength (or weakness) of one hit
The Arkansas hitters had nowhere to hide on the stat sheet: Only six batters reached base safely, but none more than once...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before a game Saturday between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees, but he never received the chance.

The former boxing champ owes over $300,000 in child support payments, so the judge in the case may take away Holyfield's license until he starts to pay up.
TABLE FOR NONE
Tony Parker recently tried to get a table at an exclusive restaurant in Memphis only to be turned away at the door, but not because he plays for the rival Spurs.
Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade delivered flying elbow to the head of Indiana Pacers guard Lance Stephenson, and was not called for a foul, during the fourth quarter of Friday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Was it an accident, or was it a cheap shot? You be the judge:
TNT announcers Marv Albert and Reggie Miller didn't think it was intentional...
Another day, another blown call by MLB umpire Angel Hernandez at a critical juncture in a game.
Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field, the Chicago White Sox were tied 3-3 with the visiting Miami Marlins and had loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning. White Sox batter Alex Rios hit a ground ball to shortstop and the Marlins turned the 6-4-3 double play. ...
PERKS OF THE JOB
It's official. Mets starter Matt Harvey is having the best year ever, both off the field and on.
One of these years, Dwyane Wade will make it through a playoff series against the Indiana Pacers without delivering a cheap shot. At least he displayed a little more tact this time around, delivering the transition ‘bow to Lance Stephenson’s dome while nobody was looking. Well, without the refs looking, that is. As for the cameras? Someone should remind Dwyane that they capture...
RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT
Titus Young appeared in court for his many offenses and reportedly ignored a judge. Read more about his court appearance.
Paul George absolutely annihilated Miami Heat forward Chris Andersen with a dunk late in the third quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
The Indiana Pacers forward was being guarded by LeBron James with about 10 seconds left in the quarter. He went left, blew by James, and then took off and dunked over Birdman with a spectacular throwdown.
Here’s your posterized...

JUNK IN THE TRUNK

Tim Duncan has been dominant in the 2013 postseason thus far and is one of the main reasons the San Antonio Spurs are poised to challenge for another NBA championship. He is averaging 16.2 points and 9.1 rebounds in 12 playoff games against the Lakers, Warriors and Grizzlies. And it appears this may all be happening while dealing with some off-court distractions.
