Jarome Iginla’s Five-Bedroom Calgary Home on Sale for $3.995 Million (Photos)

While there may have been a trade-day mix-up about where Jarome Iginla was headed, there’s no question what city he’s leaving behind. Iginla appears to be ready to part ways with Calgary for good, as he’s put his $3.995 million two-story home with a city view on sale. The 35-year-old Iginla spent his entire 16-year career in Calgary until right before the trade deadline this...

Patriots Take Fast-Rising Cornerback at No. 29 in Final 2013 NFL Mock Draft

It’s been a long 3 1/2 months since the college football season ended, and you know what that means, right? The NFL draft is just one day away. Here’s a caveat before getting into the picks: Assembling mock drafts is a tedious, terrible, mostly pointless exercise. But we all do them anyway, and it’s a nice refresher to get thoughts out before the draft starts up. No one will...

Patriots Could Trade Out of First Round If Perfect Pass Rusher, Cornerback Is Not There at No. 29 (Podcast)

It seems obvious, but the Patriots have three options in this year’s draft: stay put, trade up or trade down. If the perfect player is there at No. 29, whether it be D.J. Hayden, Tank Carradine or Bjoern Werner, New England will likely stay put and use the No. 29 pick on an impact player. If a top tier player like Star Lotulelei, Sheldon Richardson or Xavier Rhodes starts to fall...

Brad Johnson Evidences NFL’s Refusal to Take Care of Retired Players Who Sacrificed Body For League’s Profit

After 17 years in the National Football League, former quarterback Brad Johnson will see his health insurance expire after his fifth year in retirement. In Major League Baseball, if a player spends one day on an active roster — they don’t even have to play in the game — they receive healthcare benefits for the rest of their life. What other point needs to be made? The NFL technically...

Carl Crawford Calls Time in Boston ‘Nightmare,’ Says ‘I Don’t Think I Smiled in Two Years’

Newsflash: Carl Crawford didn’t enjoy his time in Boston. Crawford, who was traded to the Dodgers last August, has made it perfectly clear on multiple occasions that he wasn’t happy while playing for the Red Sox. Crawford recently spoke to USA Today, and he again hammered home just how miserable he was during his season and a half in Boston. “I don’t think I smiled in two...

Claude Julien’s Critical Comments Show Quick Reverse in Course As Bruins’ Struggles Continue

The Bruins look like they’re in trouble right now, and Boston head coach Claude Julien looks to be giving one last-ditch effort to fire up his struggling club. The B’s lost 5-2 Tuesday night in Philadelphia in an ugly showing in which the club was sloppy in just about every facet of the game. The Bruins should have been able to take advantage of a Flyers team that had little...

Robert Woods Is Patriots’ Best Option to Improve Passing Attack in NFL Draft

Robert Woods isn’t the best wide receiver in this year’s NFL draft, but he is the best fit for the Patriots. In three years at USC, Woods developed into a quick, shifty playmaker with the ability to break off the big play at any point. He was primarily used as a possession receiver in Lane Kiffin‘s offense, but was known for his wide catch radius and reliability on third-downs...

Luke Joeckel Ranked No. 1, Dion Jordan No. 2 in 2013 NFL Draft Top 100 Big Board

The NFL draft is so close I can nearly taste it — though I’m not sure I really want to know what an NFL draft tastes like. It’s still unclear how the No. 1 pick will shake out, let alone the first, second or third rounds, but this is the way I rank the Top 100 prospects in the draft. There may not be a consensus No. 1 pick in the class like there was in 2012 with Andrew Luck...

Auburn’s Jonathon Mincy Ejected From Spring Game For Illegal Hit on Teammate (Video)

Jonathon Mincy is a good football player, but that doesn’t mean he’s a good teammate. During Auburn’s spring game, Mincy slipped through receiver Dimitri Reese‘s blockers on a screen and lit him up with a devastating blow. Moncy was flagged 15 yards for targeting the receiver above the shoulders, which leads to an automatic ejection. That’s right, a player was ejected...

Now, another memory from Bonds’ historic career has been defaced, too. A Giants spokesperson admitted on Tuesday night that the plaque commemorating Bonds’ 756th career home run has...

Claude Julien Rips Bruins After Loss to Flyers, Calls Excuses ‘A Lot of BS Right Now’

Claude Julien was mad Tuesday night and for good reason. He had just seen his team play one of its worst games of the season, and after the game, the Bruins head coach let his club have it. It’s unclear whether or not Julien lit his boys up in the dressing room (one would assume there’s a good chance that happened, though), but he also took the B’s to task in his postgame news...

Royal & Ancient Golf Club Says it Won’t ‘Bully’ UK Private Clubs Into Taking Female Members

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Just because the home of the Masters now has female members, the Royal & Ancient Golf Club has no plans to pressure the all-male clubs in the British Open rotation to change its membership policies. The British Open is being played this summer at Muirfield, which has no female members. “There is nothing wrong under UK legislation with a single-sex...

Now, whatever money he may have left is being eyed by the U.S. Postal Service, the major sponsor of Armstrong’s cycling team from 1996 until 2005.

Adrian Wilson Earns ‘Incredible Hulk’ Nickname From Devin McCourty, Patriots Teammates

Devin McCourty was something of a superhero in the Patriots’ secondary last season, as he switched back and forth between cornerback and safety on a near weekly basis. But this offseason the Patriots brought another superhero into the fold. Adrian Wilson is a 12-year veteran in the NFL and an imposing presence out on the football field. His 6-foot-3, 230-pound frame is big, even...

A 21-year-old German soccer player named Thomas Muller burst onto the world stage like a man-child at the 2010 FIFA World Cup. On Tuesday, he dropped “child” from his label and simply became the man. Muller was the most influential player in Bayern Munich’s 4-0 thrashing of FC Barcelona — quite a statement considering the occasion and players with whom he shared the field...

Just another reason you can never hate Manny Ramirez. In a tie game Tuesday afternoon in the CPBL (Chinese Professional Baseball League), Manny decided to take matters into his own hands.

D.J. Hayden’s Freak injury Shouldn’t Concern Patriots as He Would Make Immediate Impact in Secondary

D.J. Hayden is lucky to be living, never mind gearing up to figure out where he will play in the NFL. Hayden was on his way to being a first-round pick when a freak collision in practice left him with a tear of the inferior vena cava, which carries blood from the lower half of the body to the heart. Luckily, doctors were able to fix the issue and he is on his way to making a full...

Carmelo Anthony, Knicks Controlling Series With Celtics By Keeping Kevin Garnett in Foul Trouble

It is sort of amazing, given Kevin Garnett‘s reputation for being a bit handsy on defense, that he only fouled out of one game all season and was whistled for at least five personal fouls just five times. In 68 games this season, Garnett was called for just 154 fouls, or an average of less than 2.3 fouls per game. Think about that, Celtics fans, next time you start to whine about...

Such is the case for Jon Lester, who has not only bounced back from last season and reassumed the mantle of team ace but is also putting together one of his strongest stretches ever...
