Steelers chairman Dan Rooney dies at 84

A cause of death was not immediately revealed. From there, Dan Rooney oversaw NFL championships for a team that had never even played in a league title game. "Dan has always lead with humility", said Greene when he introduced Rooney before his Hall of Fame induction. In 2001 they were back in the AFC championship game and Super Bowl champions again after the 2005 season. Read More

Oshie (33) and Marcus Johansson (24) set career highs for goals, and three other Capitals scored 19 or more.

Drogba joins Phoenix Rising as a player and co-owner

Galatasaray have been linked with a loan move for Lukaku in the past but considering the current form and financial situation of the club I think it is safe to say the Lions are out of the race. Speaking on Drogba's addition to the team, USL President Jake Edwards said: "The USL is a league on the rise, further demonstrated by the caliber of players who have recently joined our ranks".

Penguins' Fleury to stay in net for Game 2 vs Blue Jackets

It remains to be seen if Murray will be available for Game 2. When the starting lineups were announced, though, Fleury was named the starter in goal. "He's just an awesome player and I hope he plays the next game same". The score was 3-1 but the pain felt much worse with the Penguins notching their three goals all in the second period. Matt Calvert scored for Columbus in the third period, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 26 saves. Read More

Vertonghen says Spurs must keep pushing in title race

Chelsea remain seven points clear of second placed Tottenham with eight games to play, yet with just minutes left on a dramatic evening it seemed the Blues would have a much greater lead. Manchester City head into their home game against Hull City on Saturday having won just one of their last six matches in all competitions. It has been a less successful campaign than many predicted when Guardiola arrived from Bayern Munich in July with a record of 21 trophies from seven seasons in ... Read More

Yoenis Cespedes hits three home runs in five innings

Yoenis Cespedes hits three home runs in five innings

It took two starts for the first Clay Buchholz injury to happen with the Phillies. Buchholz allowed four earned runs over five innings in a loss last Thursday to the Reds. The Mets came out swinging tonight, and made contact with pretty much everything thrown at them, routing the Phillies 14-4. Like I said already, the pitch got away from me. Read More

LGBTQ Community: NC's Repeal of "Bathroom Bill" Does More Harm than Help

Ditto for people who are fired for being gay or transgender. "Sadly, North Carolina has failed families by giving in to hypocritical bullies like the NCAA and billion-dollar corporations". It also pre-empts local governments and school boards from enacting their own bathroom policies. "The NAACP condemns the perplexing attempt to address the discriminatory HB2 law through a proposal that on the surface repeals HB2, while subtly embedding a greater layer of discrimination and confusion ...

First night of playoffs teaches lesson to young Maple Leafs

Louis. They continue to execute the simple, smart plays that not only balance their younger, riskier counterparts but also make them effective at limiting opportunities against. It's a huge thing for a player, you don't see it, especially at that age. Wilson is one of several Capitals players the Maple Leafs have to worry about as they try to dig out of a 1-0 hole.

Justine Rose happy to lose to Sergio

Justine Rose happy to lose to Sergio

Major or no major, I said it many, many times: I have an wonderful life. "And I did. And unfortunately it went straight", Garcia said of that crucial moment. More than his shotmaking, Garcia said, it was a change in attitude and determination he could win despite setbacks, like bogeys at 10 and 11 to fall two shots back, that brought him the greatest pride.

Reds set for top four - Ibra

He claimed Shaw was performing well but it was only because he was shouting to tell him what to do from the touchline and while it is disappointing his talent is being wasted, Mourinho knows best and understands how to get the most out of his players. Read More

Klopp's Brazilian masterstroke seals 'massive' win at Stoke

Klopp's Brazilian masterstroke seals 'massive' win at Stoke

The introduction of Coutinho - who had been suffering from a bug for most of the week - along with Firmino at the interval prompted a complete turnaround with two goals within two minutes midway through the second-half. " Stoke is not too far away so we will give him all the time he needs". The Reds' top-four hopes appeared to have suffered a huge blow when Everton fan Jon Walters scored against his favourite opposition just before the break. Read More

Davis Cup Djokovic, Kyrgios target final duel

Davis Cup Djokovic, Kyrgios target final duel

The Australian No 1 carried on from the early work of underdog compatriot Jordan Thompson, who stunned Jack Sock in four sets to give the hosts a flying start, at a packed Pat Rafter Arena. "He played a very professional match, handling the nerves", Belgium skipper Johan van Herck said. In ominous form during last month's U.S. hardcourt swing, Kyrgios blasted 20 aces to Isner's 15, largely defusing the towering American's serve to close out a slow-burning match in two hours and 24 minutes.

Manchester United Cruise to Victory at Sunderland

Ibrahimovic opened the scoring with a ferocious strike and, having seen Sunderland's Seb Larsson sent off and Henrikh Mkhitaryan add a second, he provided the assist for Marcus Rashford to wrap up victory. Both players have admitted they could leave their current clubs but would likely cost £70million each. He said: "After Liverpool and Manchester City's victories, if we didn't win today it's nearly mathematically impossible (to finish fourth)". Read More

Marchand breaks late tie, Bruins top Senators 2-1 in Game 1

He played a respectable 24:04 in Game 1 and his bank pass off the glass set up Bobby Ryan for the Senators' only goal, but the two- or three-step burst that typically separates him from opponents was missing in the series opener. With two days off before Game 2, Boston hopes that it can get healthy, especially on the blue line. The goal was Marchand's 40th tally of the season and 17th in the playoffs. Read More

United on right track with Mourinho, says Vidic

At 35 Ibrahimovic is continuing to perform at the top level and Vidic - who retired from professional football last January - has joked that he is shocked at the striker's commitment as, at 35, the former defender just feels exhausted. "As he says, I'm young, I'm at a great club and therefore must continue to work hard to improve, as there are lots of things for me to learn". I admire his presence. Read More

Iniesta refuses to blame Malaga defeat on referee

Perhaps what is more intriguing is that Gil reports " Neymar was isolated this time from the rest of players, very affected by his expulsion, in a painful return journey". Barcelona can still appeal the decision and are nearly certain to do so. Last month, Alaves' Alexis Ruano was given a three-game suspension after confronting both a referee and fourth official, while in the second division Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita was given a two-game ban after verbally abusing the fourth official.
