For the second time in a month, rumors have been swirling that Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki are engaged. Last month, Serena Williams’ hitting partner made everyone believe the power couple had taken the next step in their relationship with a prank on Twitter. Then on Friday, reports surfaced that Wozniacki showed up to the Brisbane International sporting a diamond ring on her left ring finger.

According to McIlroy, the couple is not engaged. The world’s No. 1 golfer said that the rumors are untrue in a short statement on Friday afternoon.

“On behalf of Rory McIlroy I would like to confirm that he has NOT become engaged to Caroline Wozniacki as was originally reported in Australian press,” the statement said according to The Score. “Rory is in Australia to support Caroline before he heads in January to Abu Dhabi.”

Adding to the speculation earlier this week was this photo. As some of our commenters pointed out, you can see a tiny speck on Caroline’s left ring finger that could potentially be some sort of ring, but the photo is not nearly clear enough to tell.

On one hand, I’m inclined to subscribe to the “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” theory. On the other hand, Rory and Woz seem to love the public spotlight and showing everyone how much they adore each other. In fact, it even gets sickening at times. Are they really the type of couple that would keep an engagement a secret? It seems unlikely.

Browns incumbent QB to Johnny Manziel: Bring it on

I’m not sure if this is a challenge to Johnny Manziel, or just a guy who wants to help the former Heisman winner learn the NFL game. Before the draft started, Browns coach Mike Pettine said it would be difficult for anyone in the draft class to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job.   Hoyer showed tremendous potential before missing the remainder of last season...

Former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor left the team and sued the Clippers, claiming he was discriminated against based on his race and his age. This despite the fact, many NBA fans noted, Baylor had failed to build anything resembling a quality team in Los Angeles.

Willie McGinest: Patriots made the word ‘team’ sexy in the NFL

FOXBORO, Mass. — Before 2002, Super Bowl teams typically introduced their players one by one, letting each player jog out of the tunnel individually while fans cheered. The New England Patriots changed all that. The Patriots chose to be introduced as a team that day, and after their 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, a legend was born. The legend said that...
