Frozen Four Mainstay North Dakota Looking To End 15-Year Title Drought

There will be no “happy to be here” feeling for the North Dakota men’s hockey team when it arrives in Boston next week.

For Bostonians — or really any New England natives — the Boston Red Sox are more than just a sports team; they’re a religion.

Conor McGregor Swipes Jose Aldo’s Title Belt At Dublin Press Event (Video)

The UFC featherweight champion was in Conor McGregor’s native Dublin on Thursday for their UFC 189 world tour, when Aldo declared himself “the king” of the Irish capital. McGregor obviously didn’t take too kindly to that comment, so he swiped Aldo’s belt off the table in front of him.
