Carmelo Anthony reportedly has a tear in his shoulder and played in the playoffs with the injury. There is no word if he'll have surgery for it.
The NFL’s owners voted on Tuesday to award the 2016 Super Bowl to the Bay Area (Santa Clarita to be exact), where the San Francisco 49ers will have a new home starting next season.

The Santa Clarita...
Washington Nationals reliever Ryan Mattheus reportedly broke his pitching hand while punching a locker after a rough outing on Sunday afternoon.
Seattle thought it was getting its Sonics back — for a moment, anyway — until a group led by rich Seattlites Chris Hansen (not the pedophile catcher) and Microsoft bigwig Steve Ballmer was totally c-blocked by a vote of the NBA’s ownership.

PREPARING WALKING PAPERS
With the Dodgers struggling, Don Mattingly reportedly has a tenuous hold on his job at best and some speculate that it would be a surprise if he lasts the week.

Fun fact: Ruth made just $3,500 that year, and went 24-13 with a 2.01 ERA. Moore...

After a trip...

Since it’s impossible to earn a ring on the field as a Buffalo Bill, Mario Williams is going to court.
The highest-priced free agent defensive end in NFL history will go to a hearing Friday in Houston after suing his ex-fiancee for the $785,000 engagement ring he proposed to her with. The ex in question, Erin Marzouki, countered Williams’ claim with a suit of her own on Monday...

The Toronto Maple Leafs became the first team in NHL history to squander a three-goal lead in the third period of a Game 7 on Monday night, getting eliminated by the Boston Bruins by an improbable 5-4 score in overtime.
