Practice Report: Friday Posted Feb 5, 2016 View Gallery | 20 Photos Super Bowl Practice: Friday SAN JOSE, Calif. - They piped in music for the stretching portion at the start of the Carolina Panthers practice on Friday, and when a particular hip-hop number titled Walked In, by an artist known as Bankroll Fresh, was played, it seemed to light a fuse. Some players danced. Others bounced. Some hooted. And one even executed a perfect back-flip to complete what was clearly the most lively stretching session during the team's practices this week on the grass fields adjacent to Spartan Stadium at San Jose State University. "There's usually one session during the week when they ...

Seahawks: 'We're coming back strong. This is who we are.' By Jay Busbee 10 hours ago Shutdown Corner CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Admit it. You thought Seattle was going to do it. You thought the Seahawks would be the first team in 15 years to overcome a 31-point deficit, thought they'd leave the Carolina Panthers in a broken, twitching, dabbing heap. It didn't happen, of course; Carolina won without scoring a point in the second half, won despite watching Russell Wilson engineer another one of those magnificent halves that had the entire Bank of America Stadium faithful tugging nervously at the scarves that seemed to grow tight around their throats. Russell Wilson ...

He spun this pass like it was a top. Think of how much force he had to put in that to deliver it across the court. Is it too late to start renaming basketball passes?

Red Sox will retire Wade Boggs' No. 26 and we'll drink to that By Mike Oz December 21, 2015 3:19 PM Big League Stew When we're talking about Wade Boggs, the Hall of Fame third baseman, it's hard to not talk about numbers. He had 3,010 hits in 18 MLB seasons, finishing with a .328 career average. He's also famous for supposedly drinking 107 beers in a day. Both are impressive feats, but the first is the reason for this next bit of historical numerology: The Boston Red Sox announced Monday that they plan to retire Boggs' No. 26 next May. The best response we have to that news is "cheers!" As much as Boggs' ability to soak up the suds has made him ...

Dodgers hit with record $43.6 million luxury tax bill By Mark Townsend 21 hours ago Big League Stew The free-spending Los Angeles Dodgers will be picking up another expensive tab this winter. According to the Associated Press, the Dodgers have been hit with a record luxury tax of nearly $43.6 million for a payroll that fell just shy of $300 million during the 2015 season. Yes, that bill is even more expensive than the 34.5 million they owe Clayton Kershaw in 2016 or the $34.5 million Zack Greinke will earn on average during his new deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks. And just think, had the Dodgers been able to re-sign Greinke, they'd be well on their way to a likely more ...

1. Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been scoring at an incredible rate. Curry joins Allen Iverson in 2005-06 as the only players in the past 30 seasons to average at least 32 points per game in the first 20 games of a season, according to Elias Sports Bureau research. 2.

Brady: 'I don’t think I’ve ever been so visibly pissed off' November 30, 2015, 10:45 am by Phil Perry Given the way Sunday night's game played out, it was understandable as to why Tom Brady was so irked after the fact. The Patriots had a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. They had big pickups negated by penalties they didn't agree with. They lost Rob Gronkowski, who had to be carted off due to an injury. They didn't get a pass-interference penalty they thought they deserved when Brandon LaFell ran deep down the field during the first play of overtime. Then the Broncos ended the game with a long touchdown run. "How it all played out," Brady ...

Bengals no longer undefeated after terrible performance in Texans loss By Frank Schwab 17 hours ago Shutdown Corner This is why it's so hard to go deep into a season with an undefeated record. It's why we need to appreciate what the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots have done. There are no easy games in the NFL. There are no McNeese States on the schedule. If you're off in the NFL, you're going to lose. There's not that big of a gap between the best teams in the NFL and the worst ones to win when you play poorly. And it's hard to have your best game 16 times in a row. The Cincinnati Bengals are no longer undefeated. They came in 8-0, as 10-point ...

Holly Holm is the superior fighter, but does that make Ronda Rousey a fraud? By Dan Wetzel 15 hours ago In February, Ronda Rousey is set to begin filming a remake of the movie "Road House." She'll reprise Patrick Swayze's role of Dalton, the I-want-you-to-be-nice-until-it's-time-to-not-be-nice bouncer. It is precisely the kind of thing that her critics are howling about in the wake of her knockout defeat to Holly Holm Saturday for the UFC bantamweight title. Does she want to be an actress or a fighter? Is she real or an overhyped fraud? Is she just the real-life version of another cinematic classic character, the business-minded Apollo Creed walking straight into ...
