WaPo: Trump Administration Mulling $6 Billion in HUD Cuts

The proposal would eliminate billions of dollars from public housing maintenance funds - used to fix vital equipment such as toilets, water pumps and heating equipment - and eliminate community development grants entirely. Should the Trump administration's plan to slash 14 percent from the national housing budget come to fruition, people will indeed be "dying on the street", the head of national advocacy group warned on Thursday, borrowing President Donald Trump's own words.

More on Daniel Bryan wrestling again

More on Daniel Bryan wrestling again

The Miz mocked Daniel Bryan's injury on Talking Smack once again, a recurring theme on the show since late past year. Daniel Bryan's contract with the WWE will end in a year and a half. One thing that would work in Daniel Bryan's favor if he does decide to wrestle again is that working outside of WWE would allow him to control his own schedule and he could work as much or as little as he wants.

Mike Mayock: No 'official' talk with Redskins on GM job

Mike Mayock: No 'official' talk with Redskins on GM job

The response provides plenty of wiggle room, allowing for an inference that there has been "unofficial contact" between the two sides. It's certainly not the hardest denial we've ever seen. Mayock has been with NFL Network since 2005, and did color commentary for Notre Dame football on NBC with Tom Hammond from 2010 to 2014. Mayock is essentially the Mel Kiper, Jr. Read More

Mike Glennon to get a 3-year offer from Chicago

Mike Glennon to get a 3-year offer from Chicago

Glennon has some upside, as he is 6-7 and has a terrific arm. Glennon sometimes does not set his feet when he throws, causing the ball to float and miss its mark. Don't overthink this. Glennon is just another piece to a larger plan. With Jeffrey gone, the Bears need to find a serious threat for Glennon and/or Watson. Read More

Eagles agree to one-year deal with guard Chance Warmack

Eagles agree to one-year deal with guard Chance Warmack

A hand injury that required surgery ended last season for him after two games. Apparently the Vikings offered more money and more security for Jeffery, who for some reason decided for less money and less security with the Eagles... The No. 1 priority for the Eagles this offseason was to surround Wentz with better weapons, and the Eagles did just that by adding Jeffery, who was widely regarded as the prize of this free agency class.

Barca produce a miracle, stun PSG 6-1

Barca produce a miracle, stun PSG 6-1

Most stunningly, Barcelona needed - and then scored - three goals in the final seven minutes to win the match. Today I'm going to party even though I have training tomorrow. While that goal probably made PSG fans sit up in their seats, it was the next that made them sweat. Emery's side now sit second in the league, three points adrift of leaders Monaco, and are still in two domestic cup competitions. Read More

Barca coach Enrique hailed for tactical shift behind historic comeback

Barca coach Enrique hailed for tactical shift behind historic comeback

Luis Enrique rattled the words off, trying to make sense of the game he had just watched, his pace quickening until eventually he stopped, sat back, puffed his cheeks out and said: "And that's it, here we are". "It's a nightmare for everyone". At stumps on day two, NZ were 177 for three , trailing Proteas' first innings score of 308 by 131 runs. Enrique warned the French champions on Tuesday that his side were capable of scoring six and they needed the full 95 minutes to pull of a miracle ... Read More

Kluivert says Man Utd, Chelsea target Verratti not leaving PSG

However, a Neymar-inspired seven-minute comeback from Barcelona resulted in a 6-1 scoreline on the night and the Catalans went through to the quarter-finals. This latest European disappointment is surely not going to help convince him of the promise of PSG's project. That said, Verratti's is on a long, long, long-term contract and there's something to be said for actual loyalty in these modern times. Read More

Rakitic extends Barca deal to 2021

The new deal, which he will sign on Friday in the offices of the Camp Nou Stadium raises Rakitic's buyout clause to approximately $137 million making it very unlikely that anyone will attempt to buy him in the near future. "15-20 minutes after the game, it is insane and unbelievable", Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic told BBC . "It's really hard to explain what happened yesterday; I think it was a insane night, a insane match and I'm so proud to be part of this team". Read More

Titans Sign CB Logan Ryan

The deal is worth $30 million over three years, a source told NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. While being the leading tackler as a cornerback might not be viewed as a positive, in Ryan's case it is more reflective of his excellent tackling and run-force skills that Patriots coaches valued highly.

Five takeaways from the biggest moves on Day 1 — National Football League free agency

Five takeaways from the biggest moves on Day 1 — National Football League free agency

Nobody has seen a team in the salary-cap era trade a fourth-round pick for a second- and sixth-round pick, and a low-level starting quarterback. It's nearly like they knew exactly how to even out the deal. Osweiler , with his guaranteed money, carries little risk as part of the roster. Garoppolo seems to be the logical target. He's intriguing as a dual-threat, but there's no way Cleveland will head into 2017 expecting him to start. Read More

Massachusetts Adds 13000 Jobs in January

Here are five tweets in which Trump touted his job-creating skills - and insulted his Democratic opponent from the presidential race previous year in the process. "We're going to have job growth like you've never seen". That pans out to 2.5 million jobs a year, and 208,000 jobs a month. Last January, he told NBC News that the jobs report was "90% fake".

Hamish Watson returns to Scotland XV to face England

Wales now lie in seventh place in the IRB world rankings - and defeat to Joe Schmidt's side at the Millennium Stadium, as well as France in their final fixture - could see them slip out of the top eight. "But ultimately we feel we can communicate with each other". Glasgow Warriors outside half Finn Russell is hoping he can help inspire a famous Scottish win at Twickenham to give Vern Cotter the flawless send-off gift in the RBS 6 Nations before he heads to Montpellier this summer.
