Jeb Bush’s reason for rooting for Peyton Manning? Money talks

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush explained to a crowd in South Carolina the reason why he was rooting for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 instead of the Carolina Panthers, an admission that likely would have resonated a lot better with the assembled crowd. In a word, money. “I know that y’all probably maybe had some leanings toward Carolina,”...

Matt Barnes coyly denies IG post was shot at Derek Fisher

The timing of an Instagram post in which a nattily attired Matt Barnes smirks at the camera gave all the appearances that it was intended to be a smarmy and snarky reaction to the news that bitter nemesis Derek Fisher had been fired by the New York Knicks. Not so, says Barnes. “I liked what I was wearing,” he said before his Memphis Grizzlies squad beat the Brooklyn Nets...

Did Markieff Morris give the middle finger to heckling Suns fan?

In an evening already overwrought with drama for the Phoenix Suns, Markieff Morris made some kind of gesture — perhaps an obscene one — towards a heckling fan as he made his way to the locker room after the team’s 112-104 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. As the Suns and Morris walked off the court, the disgruntled can be seen raising his right hand up...

Jones: I ‘scream in my pillow’ being at Super Bowl, not in it

It’s been 20 years since Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys actually competed in a Super Bowl. But the team’s owner/general manager was in attendance for last weekend’s festivities surrounding Super Bowl 50 and he candidly revealed just how much it tears him up to be at the NFL’s final game of the season but not in it. “I hate it. I scream in my pillow when I go home...

Cam Newton said on Tuesday that he is a sore loser as a means to justify his heavily criticized conduct during a press conference following the Carolina Panthers’ loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

Sabathia on post-rehab health: The best I've felt in three years

As CC Sabathia continues his journey to health not only in a physical sense but in both mind and spirit as well in the wake of a hastily arranged stay in a Connecticut rehab facility last October, he can scarcely contain his excitement for the 2016 MLB season. “I feel the best I have in three years,” Sabathia wrote in a text to the New York Post. “I am excited to get to...

Browns deny coverup of Manziel showing up drunk at practice

NFL Network’s Mike Silver delivered a bombshell report that claims the Cleveland Browns lied about Johnny Manziel having a concussion to cover how he showed up to a practice drunk ahead of the team’s regular-season finale.

Phil Jackson justifies firing Fisher with psychology lesson

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson is of course a philosophical individual who boats a very eccentric — and proven — outlook on coaching and what’s the most effective means to get the most out of one’s players. He’s also something of a social media provocateur, known for posting interesting — if not completely out-there — tweets from time to time. Those two...

Newton erotic novella ‘Dabbin’ with Cam’ released on Amazon

With much of the talk concerning Cam Newton revolving around his relatively short and curt comments following the Carolina Panthers’ loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 — not to mention the defiant tone he took when conceding that he’s a “sore loser,” recent news on the more whimsically provocative side of things arguably is a much welcomed distraction. In the...

Stan Van Gundy credits Knicks for handling of Derek Fisher firing

NBA head coaches typically get a bit defensive and critical when one of their own loses their job. And while Detroit Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy indicated he feels bad for Derek Fisher after he lost his job with the New York Knicks, he praised the organization for handling the situation the right way. Specifically speaking, Van Gundy believes the way in which the Knicks cut...

Report: Johnny Manziel showed up drunk at Browns practice

In another disturbing alleged twist in the protracted Johnny Manziel’s saga, a report from NFL Network’s Mike Silver suggests that the quarterback showed up drunk to a Cleveland Browns practice ahead of the team’s regular season finale.

Mets will be present for two Royals’ WS ceremonies

If the New York Mets have managed to get over the disappointment and heartbreak of losing the World Series in five games last fall, the Kansas City Royals unfortunately will remind their vanquished opponents of the sting of coming up short to kick-off the 2016 MLB season.

Stephen Curry trash-talked Kobe Bryant as rookie … it didn’t go well

Stephen Curry hasn’t always been the awe-inspiring and seemingly unstoppable force he has developed into over his nearly seven NBA seasons. At one point, he was a bright-eyed rookie trying to find his way … but nevertheless was a player that apparently already possessed some semblance of the confidence that has propelled him to superstardom, an MVP award and an NBA title. The...

LeBron: ‘I don’t really see a problem’ with Hack-a-Shaq

With Adam Silver saying recently he is beginning to see no other option other than alter NBA rules to counteract the overuse of the “Hack-a-(Whomever)” practice currently plaguing the NBA, LeBron James was asked his opinion of the swirling controversy. Simply stated, James has little problem with teams employing the strategy and that changes aren’t really necessary. I don’t...

John Scott’s NHL All-Star Game Odyssey: Now in storybook form

To say that the Odyssey John Scott experienced en route to an appearance and captaincy at the 2016 NHL All-Star Game last week would be a understatement of Greek epic proportions. And while he relished each and every moment leading up to his MVP-winning performance at the league’s annual showcase, there were pitfalls along the way, something the Arizona Coyotes-turned-Montreal...

Kobe ‘as puzzled by it as you are’ over great three-game stretch

Kobe Bryant put up his third consecutive blast-from-the-past performance in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 99-96 road victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night. And given how he has struggled so mightily for significant stretches during his 2015-16 NBA season swan song, the 37-year-old soon-to-be retiree is having difficulty explaining why he’s played so well of late...

Yoenis Cespedes, Jerry Seinfeld still on for Cuban sandwiches

Lifelong New York Mets fan Jerry Seinfeld was understandably thrilled last season when his favorite baseball team on July 31st acquired slugger Yoenis Cespedes in a trade with the Detroit Tigers. So much so, in fact, that the comedian took to Twitter and dropped a reference from his classic television show to celebrate the roster move. Oh my god. @MetsI can't believe I can actually...

Brian Cashman on A-Rod playing defense: ‘He just can’t do it’

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman railed against the notion of Alex Rodriguez ever putting on a fielder’s glove and playing some defense, saying the 40-year-old designated hitter simply isn’t capable of it anymore. “He just can’t do it [play the field], so I see no sense in belaboring it,” Cashman said of Rodriguez, via the New York Post. “He is not capable...

Broncos wideout: Manning’s throws soft ‘like Charmin’

The Denver Broncos stormed to a 12-4 record despite Peyton Manning’s erratic and poor play early on and how his injuries prompted the inexperienced Brock Osweiler to replace the veteran.
