Sports News, Rumors and Analysis

He is absolutely for real. Real as he is advertised by the local media and New York tabloids. By now, the world is glued to Jeremy Lin — the man of the hour, the latest phenomenon in the NBA — scoring a career-high 38 points and leading the New York Knicks to a 92-85 victory Friday night. When he made the grander statement than Kobe Bryant, arguably the greatest...

Austin Rivers, at the end of a college hoops spectacular, was mobbed by his teammates, his father, Doc Rivers, among them, went nuts watching his son drill a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer to beat rivals North Carolina 85-84 Wednesday night in Chapel Hill. As the clock trickled, he pulled up, launched a rainbow three-pointer and stunned the Tar Heel folks, taking...

In the aftermath of the Patriots loss in Super Bowl XLVI, Wes Welker is the scapegoat critics are pointing their fingers at directly, giving him the evil eye. It’s bad enough the Patriots lost, yes, but to describe Welker as Bill Buckner is more than an insult. It’s ignorance, plain and simple, to compare him to the embattled Red Sox first baseman who blundered...

There he was, the American profile, leaving the field with his head down, speechless, distraught and disenchanted as the Giants celebrated a comeback victory in Super Bowl XLVI Sunday night. Tom Brady was the hottest commodity in sports for a long time, mainly because he’s the coolest, sexiest athlete who featured in People’s magazine 50 most beautiful people. In...

He said he’ll be ready to play, against the New York Giants, with his usual intensity and toughness in running routes and grabbing Tom Brady’s passes — a chance to become a Super Bowl hero. That is, if Rob Gronkowski has a signature game-winning catch, similar to four years ago when Eli Manning delivered a spectacular pass that was caught, even more unbelievably...

We knew he was one of the magazine’s 50 most beautiful people before he led the Patriots to Super Bowl XLVI. We knew he was a lucky man, married to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen. We knew he was the greatest quarterback of all-time in NFL history. But as we are less than 24 hours away from the Super Bowl, although his legacy is cemented as one of the best passers...

The raw and ferociously competitive mind of Jason Pierre-Paul, or JPP as fans prefer to call him, is turning the disruptive force into an athletic, beastlike American phenomenon. Pretty soon, as you and I know, the Giants No. 90 jersey can become a top selling consumer product, when Pierre-Paul is hastily soaring as a primary defensive star in New York. Because of his...

More than thousands of reporters and photographers crowded at Super Bowl media day – the wildest circus where reporters from all over the world gathered around Eli Manning’s table. There is a suggestion here that he might clearly be the best quarterback in Super Bowl XLVI, or for that matter, on the verge of winning his second Super Bowl title to surpass his brother,...

You don’t have to like Bill Belichick, the three-time champion head coach of arguably the greatest Super Bowl team of this generation. He’s not the most likable man, always wearing a dark blue hoodie — an unstylish NFL genius – having a shrewd IQ, even though few believe he’s a fraud after the infamous episode of Spygate. Either way, that is, Belichick –...

If Apple weren’t invented in this new age of innovation, we seemingly wouldn’t have iPods or iPhones. The same can be said for owner Jim Irsay and the Indianapolis Colts. If they weren’t in dire need of a franchise quarterback, the Colts apparently wouldn’t have seen the emergence of Peyton Manning, the endearing star of the South’s most famous college quarterbacks.
