Bills coach Doug Marrone didn’t know backup quarterback Aaron Corp’s name

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone is still getting acclimated with his new team. The Bills have yet to begin any organized offseason workouts, so Marrone probably hasn’t had a chance to speak with all of his players in person. In fact, he may not even know all of their names.

Angels players have clubhouse pool going for whether Josh Hamilton will be booed or cheered in Texas

There is very little doubt that Josh Hamilton is going to be booed when the Los Angeles Angels travel to Arlington this season to face the Texas Rangers.

Hamilton will get the reception out of the way early, as the Rangers...

JaVale McGee blocks shot by grabbing ball out of midair (Video)
