Who knew that teeth hampered your offensive ability? Isaiah Thomas came alive after losing a front chomper, waking up the Celtics offense en route to a quick 12 first-quarter points.
This week has brought several news items about Teddy Bridgewater and his future in Minnesota. That future continues to look pretty grim.
During the first period of Game 1 of the Predators’ playoff series with the Blues, Nashville winger Kevin Fiala got squished into the boards by Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo. The crash was very ugly and Fiala folded up like an accordion after he hit the wall. Getting scrunched down to the ice by Bortuzzo probably…
Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez has had an underwhelming start to the season, and it turned worse Tuesday. Hernandez lasted two innings in Seattle’s 19-9 loss to Detroit, ceding four runs before getting yanked after 48 pitches. Hernandez leads the majors in hits allowed with 39 and currently has a 4.73 ERA. He was…
Yoann Offredo is an experienced French cyclist, who has raced in the professional peloton since 2006. He spent a decade with FDJ, where he finished in the top ten of a handful of classics and served as a domestique for the team’s stars. He’s racing for Belgian team Wanty Groupe-Gobert and he wrapped up a very…
The Mets are all broken, and they’re exhibiting an impressive range of maladies all at one time. Manager Terry Collins ran through the list of injuries currently afflicting his team today, and it took him quite a while:
The Chicago Bulls announced this morning that point guard Rajon Rondo fractured his thumb during a Game 2 victory over the Boston Celtics, and while the injury won’t require surgery, he will be out indefinitely.
At a press event today for a new public golf course in Ridgedale, Mo., a kid reporter challenged old and fucked up Tiger Woods to a “friendly” competition from the range. Woods, sounding like he was reading a cue card, said, “There’s nothing friendly about it.” He smiled. Chuckles all around.
Andrew Luck had surgery on his throwing shoulder in January, and in a conversation with reporters today, he revealed that the injury was from before the 2016 season:
In the second period of Sunday’s Game 3 between the Penguins and Blue Jackets, Columbus defenseman Zach Werenski took a Phil Kessel shot right under the eye. Since Pittsburgh kept possession of the puck, officials didn’t stop play, which led to Bryan Rust tying the game at three as Werenski spilled red on the ice on…
Dale Scott left the field in Toronto tonight on a stretcher as the 31-year veteran umpire took a foul tip directly to the face.
There are two times American fans of European soccer are reminded of Giuseppe Rossi, boundlessly talented yet heartbreakingly star-crossed striker and The One That Got Away. One reason is good and the other one is bad, and both prompts were recently triggered in the span of a single, exultant-turned-depressing week.
Dustin Johnson, reigning U.S. Open champion and current No. 1-ranked golfer in the world, might have to miss this weekend’s tournament after he suffered a back injury at his rental home in Augusta, Ga.
Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty had a great day yesterday, signing a six-year extension with St. Louis the day after beating the Cubs on national television. He had the opposite sort of day today, as he had to leave the Cards’ game early with a head contusion after getting hit by a trio of baseballs thrown by…
Emergency personnel took Michal Neuvirth off the ice on a stretcher after the Flyers goalie collapsed early in Philadelphia’s game against the Devils tonight.
Tiger Woods announced in December he was returning to golf, but his broken, fucked-up body won’t allow it—as Woods announced on his website today that he’ll miss the Masters for the third time in four years.
Dallas Stars forward Curtis McKenzie left a trail of blood on the ice after the Bruins’ Kevan Miller high-sticked him in the third period of Thursday’s 2-0 Boston win.
The director in charge of the Ireland-Wales match last Friday decided against showing a replay of Neil Taylor’s nasty challenge that wound up snapping Séamus Coleman’s leg, and for good reason. Now that we do have access to the slow-motion replay, we wish we never had seen the injury in such terrible detail:
James Harden did not have a very good game against the Warriors last night, despite finishing with 24 points, 13 assists, and 11 rebounds. Move down the box score a bit, and you’ll see that he was 5-of-20 from the field and 1-of-9 from three-point range. What was to blame for the rough shooting night? Probably his…
Sharks center Logan Couture could miss some time after taking a deflected puck to the mouth in Saturday’s 7-2 loss to the Predators.
