A meteor shower in Russia is to blame for the potential postponement of the Kontinental Hockey League playoffs.On Friday, a barrage of meteor's rained down on buildings and caused over 700 people to seek medical attention.Arena Traktor, the Chelyabinsk home to the Traktor hockey club, was heavily damaged during the bizarre occurrence and will need to be "inspected and assessed" before playoff games can be hosted there.Traktor wasn't scheduled to play a home game there until Feb. 21, but youth league matches have been postponed for this weekend. Traktor is slated to complete its regular season with a road trip to Magnitogorsk before hosting Gagarin Cup playoff games.However, that may not happen if inspectors find the building can't be repaired in time.Via Home Ice

Report: Alex Smith out week 17 with lacerated spleen

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith suffered an injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

Belichick: Garoppolo has better understanding of NFL

It’s only right that three days after Christmas, the New England Patriots will get to play with their shiny new quarterback. Since Sunday’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills means nothing to the New England Patriots  — they’ve already clinched the No. 1 seed in the AFC — keeping their starters in the game for all four quarters seems like a ticking time bomb for injuries...

Lionel Hollins: 'Honored and blessed to coach Kevin Garnett'

BOSTON — Lionel Hollins knows greatness when he sees it. The Brooklyn Nets bench boss has coached Kevin Garnett for just a few short months, but he could not praise the veteran big man enough when speaking with reporters Friday morning. “I’m honored and blessed to have had the opportunity to coach Kevin,” Hollins said before the Nets’ matchup with Garnett’s former...

Curt Schilling gives Johnny Manziel advice on Twitter

Have you ever wondered what advice Curt Schilling would give to Johnny Manziel? No? Well, now we know anyway. The former Red Sox pitcher reached out unsolicited to Manziel on Twitter to give the Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback a bit of a Christmas gift.

The last time the Lions won in Green Bay

Mel Gray returned a fourth quarter punt 78 yards for a touchdown. Erik Kramer completed two touchdown passes to Robert Clark. The year was 1991, and the eventual NFC Central winning Detroit Lions held off Mike Tomczak and the Green Bay Packers 21-17 at Lambeau Field. Since that fateful December afternoon in Green Bay, the Packers have won 23 consecutive home games against Detroit...

Carmelo Anthony: The Knicks are dying

When all is said and done, the 2014-2015 New York Knicks could easily be the worst team in franchise history. The Knicks, who have never won less than 21 games in a season, have lost 16 of their last 17 this year and have a record of 5-26 after their latest loss on Christmas Day....Read More

Andre Johnson willing to take pay cut with Texans?

One of the easiest ways Andre Johnson could force his way out of Houston would be to refuse to restructure his contract this offseason. Johnson will turn 34 before the start of the 2015 season, and he is set to count roughly $16 million against the Texans’ salary cap. Is he willing to lower that...Read More

Mets star David Wright reaches out to sons of slain NYPD officer

When David Wright heard about the sons of slain NYPD officer Rafael Ramos, he felt obligated to do something.   The New York Mets captain is the son of a cop himself, so on Christmas Eve, he called Jaden and Justin Ramos, who lost their father when he and another officer were murdered in Brooklyn on Saturday. Wright had a 15-minute conversation with the boys and offered them a...
