THE CURSE IS OVER! After 108-Year Drought, Chicago Cubs Defeat Cleveland Indians To Win 2016 World Series
For the first time in 108 years, the Chicago Cubs are World Series Champions. The Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians, 8-7, on Wednesday in Game 7 of the World Series behind home runs from Dexter Fowler and David Ross. The Cubs got things started immediately with a leadoff home run from Dexter Fowler.

Jeurys Familia , an All-Star closing pitcher for the New York Mets who recently appeared in an ad campaign against domestic violence , was arrested for domestic violence on Monday, the Bergen Record reports. Fort Lee, New Jersey, police accused Familia, identified as Jeurys F. Mojica, of causing “bodily injury to another,” according to a complaint posted Tuesday by The Record. The victim, whose name is redacted from the complaint, had “visible injuries, specifically a scratch to the chest and bruise to the right cheek.” Familia, 27, was arrested after an officer who responded to the incident “found probable cause to believe domestic violence had occurred,” the complaint states. The athlete was charged with simple assault, and bail was set at $1,500. In a statement to The Record, the Mets said, “The matter was brought to our attention and we are monitoring the situation.” Familia was among a number of athletes who recently starred in an ad campaign sponsored by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence .
The United States’ oldest and largest Native American organization has requested a meeting with Major League Baseball and the Cleveland Indians to discuss the team’s controversial Chief Wahoo logo.

The U.S. took an early lead in the Olympic medal count, while China and Italy vied for the top spot in the establishment lane. Donald Trump gave a major “policy speech,” and we realized he reads off a teleprompter with the same cadence we use to order takeout from people who don’t speak English well.

What we learn from ESPN’s new film Doc and Darryl is that like the rest of us, Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry don’t quite know what to say about what happened. So one of the most valuable takeaways from this latest revisit to an oft-told tale is the seemingly peripheral, but critical fact that while it’s easy for outsiders to see them as tragic twins, they were and remain different people who walk different paths.

Muhammad Ali represented the epitome of black excellence. Ali, who died Friday , used his skill, strength and charisma to climb his way to the top and earn recognition as a world class boxing and civil rights champion.

In a 336-minute, seven-game series, the Golden State Warriors needed less than 170 seconds in the third quarter to dismantle, dishearten and dispose of the Oklahoma City Thunder, doing what they do best and knocking down five treys in three minutes to earn their second consecutive berth in the NBA Finals with a 96-88 victory Monday night. Of course, it started and ended with Stephen Curry.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were 12 minutes away from returning to the NBA Finals. They were up by eight entering the fourth quarter of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals, and things were looking good. Russell Westbrook was nearing a triple double.
A back-and-forth battle in Game 1 of the NBA Western Conference Finals led to a surprising early-series deficit for the Golden State Warriors. And, for a time Wednesday, it looked as if Game 2 was headed for another photo finish in the Warriors’ showdown with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

ESPN, surrender your cool credentials. You do not interrupt an indie rock hero just named the most-valuable player in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, especially to redirect him to talk about “celebrity stuff, not politics.” While being interviewed after winning the 2016 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Arcade Fire ’s Win Butler used the opportunity to launch into a political speech lauding Canada’s health care system. But ESPN reporter Sage Steele was having none of it.
As the dust settles around Super Bowl 50, the conversation around the contest itself has died down, while the dialogue surrounding Cam Newton’s abrupt departure from his postgame presser has, somehow, lived on.

Others have declared that it was a natural response from a guy whose style of play is wholly predicated on his emotions

Pittsburgh Steelers assistant coach Mike Munchak has absolutely no chill. Towards the end of the first quarter of the Steelers’ Wild Card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday night, Munchak yanked a handful of Bengals safety Reggie Nelson’s dreadlocks. Nelson barrelled into the Steelers’ sidelines after pushing running back Jordan Todman out-of-bounds. Munchak may have felt like Nelson unnecessarily shoved his running back into the sideline — Todman was nearly out-out-bounds when Nelson hit him, and the extra push sent Todman crashing into the bench. Todman should have been the star of the play for his darting run, but one of his coaches overreacted to a bit of chippiness on Nelson’s part.

The big story on Thursday night wasn’t just Stanford’s convincing 56-35 win over UCLA , but a single incredible catch. In what’s already being called college football’s ” catch of the year ” and one of the best of all time, Stanford’s Francis Owusu pulled off a play that has to be seen to be believed.

Terry Bradshaw is sick of football players like Dallas Cowboys’ Greg Hardy getting passes on domestic violence — and he’s even more upset that the NFL continues to give them. A fired-up Bradshaw didn’t mince words as he ripped into Hardy during the “Fox NFL Sunday” pre-game show. “Anybody, in my opinion, who lays a hand on a woman, I don’t care who you are, my friend: You never come back in this league,” Bradshaw said. “I really, really seriously hope, eventually, we never have a place in the NFL for people who … strike a woman,” Bradshaw said as his co-hosts sat in silence. Terry Bradshaw gives his heartfelt viewpoint on Greg Hardy's domestic abuse case. https://t.co/LfMelAXzmj — FOX Sports: NFL (@NFLonFOX) October 11, 2015 But Hardy, who was signed to the Cowboys in March, wasn’t the only target of Bradshaw’s criticism.
When convicted domestic abuser Greg Hardy returns to the NFL on Sunday, his history of violence against women will follow him to the team parking lot, through AT&T Stadium, into the locker room and out onto the field. But should he ever harm a woman again, that same history will push him off the field and out of the league for life. In the 13 months since TMZ published video of Ray Rice knocking out Janay Palmer in a casino elevator , both the NFL and the Canadian Football League have developed new domestic violence policies in close association with domestic violence experts that take a “help me help you” approach to aggressors and victims alike. Buried deep within both of those new domestic violence policies is another type of possible punishment, perhaps the ultimate punishment a league can hand down to any man who makes his living playing football: a lifetime ban. In the NFL’s case, it’s two strikes and you’re out.

El portal de noticias kicker (entre otros medios) dan como un hecho que chicha se va al Bayern Leverkusen de Alemania y sería presentado mañana lunes, la partida de chicharito no cae tanto por sorpresa dado el hecho de que estaba bastante claro que no era del agrado del técnico holandés Louis van Gaal Chicha termina así una etapa de buenos y malos momentos, tuvo una genial temporada de estreno, con final de champions incluida, después tuvo una campaña muy irregular y empezó a comer banca, cuando sir Alex se fue prácticamente lo borraron y se fue al Madrid seis meses, paso malos ratos pero cerro la temporada excelentemente. Regreso a Manchester pero el discurso de “Chicharito se queda” al parecer fue más para endurecer las negociaciones que algo que realmente pasara por la mente de Louis van Gaal Javier Hernández encontró en Alemania un equipo donde puede tener más minutos y jugar champions league, aun así creo que West Ham hubiera sido un mejor equipo para él, una mejor liga y más minutos, pero la falta de competición europea de los ingleses seguramente influyo en la decisión de Javier Ojala encuentre en Alemania el futbol que quiere y necesita, y si se encuentra los goles y la madurez que lo empujen a un delantero top pues que mejor

Ante la supuesta negativa de Bielsa y el Tuca otro nombre a salido a la luz como probable director técnico, Ricardo Lavolpe, el bigotón ha sido el único que ha calificado sin complicaciones a un mundial en los últimos años, y pese a sus detractores también fue uno de los que mejor jugo, que en el mundial le fue del carajo? Cierto, pero con todo y eso obtuvo los mismos resultados que todos los demás técnicos en los últimos cinco mundiales. Quiere su revancha el bigotón, aunque le duela a Vergara y creo que está bastante calificado como para que se la den
Tuca me encanta, no por nada no ha dejado de trabajar desde que se retiró, y además no hay presidente de equipo que pueda presumir que lo corrió a medio torneo, supongo en parte por eso se ríe cada vez que suena para chivas. El tuca no es ningún tonto, no va a meterse a la boca del lobo ni a donde tenga más por perder que lo que tenga por ganar

Carlos Izquierdoz tuvo una tarde de pesadilla la noche de ayer durante el partido de Santos vs Xolos, en dos ocasiones le sangraron la nariz… corría el minuto 20 del primer tiempo, al defensa santista Carlos Izquierdoz se le ocurrió la genial idea de detener el avance Xoloitzcuintle tirandole una barrida por detrás al capitán Javier Gandolfi. El argentino, muy conocido por blandito, no se iba a quedar de brazos cruzados mientras recibía la barrida, al caer le dejo un recuerdito a Carlos Izquierdoz y le rompe el tabique nasal, el futbolista de Santos como todo buen guerrero, regreso inmediatamente a la cancha pero solo para ser recibido con tremendo balonazo en el rostro! Obviamente su nariz, convertida en fuente de sangre, se abrió nuevamente y obligo los médicos a trabajar sobre su nariz nuevamente y claro, puntos extras para el utilero que no solamente tuvo las camisas listas sino que ademas fue a imprimir otra camisa con el numero de Carlos Izquierdoz, digo por si se volvía a necesitar… Puedes ver el video en la pagina de ESPN
