By Jason Rowan Mike Zimmer, throughout his many years as an NFL assistant, coordinator and now as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, has cultivated an image of being an old school coach.

Tim Tebow signs Bible for fan after practice

By Jason Rowan Professional athletes often are asked to sign bizarre things for their fans, but the fact that a fan — who clearly shares Tim Tebow’s religiosity — asked the quarterback to sign a Bible during an open practice at Philadelphia Eagles training camp at Lincoln Financial Field definitely ranks up there with one of the strangest requests for an item to be autographed...

By Jason Rowan Given the manner in which the Golden State Warriors rolled through the NBA Playoffs to the franchise’s first title in decades, Stephen Curry admitted he was taken aback by the fact that his team isn’t tabbed as favorites to repeat as champions.

By Jason Rowan The New York Mets have been on an absolute tear of late and their hot streak was further bolstered on Wednesday night when new acquisition Yoenis Cespedes bashed his first home run with his new team.

Werth on trailing Mets: 'It's easier to chase than be chased'

By Jason Rowan Jayson Werth suggests that trailing the New York Mets in the NL East standings as opposed to Washington Nationals leading the division puts the team in an arguably advantageous position, as being the pursued is harder than being the ones in pursuit. “I don’t mind being in stalking position,” Werth said. “When you make the run at it down the stretch, it’s...

By Jason Rowan At least one of Johnny Manziel’s teammates believes the second-year quarterback has what it takes to become one of the NFL’s most popular players.
