The Sacramento Kings, a failed state of an NBA team run by a clueless owner, will be bad this year, despite internal expectations that they’ll make the playoffs.

After blaming the victim a few months ago, NFL leaders decided this time around to blame records…
The ancient Indian sport of kabaddi is undergoing a revolution.
