Manchester City have travelled round the Premier League and absolutely destroyed teams, and that's why this was going to be a very hard game for us but tonight showed this is a huge ...

Quiet Warriors debut for Durant

McGee was active on the boards, blocked and challenged multiple shots; he displayed the athleticism we are so used to seeing from him. I came through segregation, I know what it looks like. Durant sees it as a big plus for him going forward. "We want to do it the right way", said Anthony. It's not anything that bothers us. It remains to be seen just how much the stars for both teams play tonight, with both the Warriors and Raptors also having players to evaluate when it comes to filling ...

Not one for records, Barrett sets new school mark

BERKELEY, Calif. - Davis Webb threw four touchdown passes and California stopped Zach Moss from the 1-yard line on the final play to win its second straight matchup against a ranked opponent. Only once during his iconic reign, from 1951 through 1978, did a quarterback throw for double-digit TDs in a season. It remains to be seen if somebody can fill that void when Rutgers starts playing lower-echelon Big Ten teams after this Saturday's game against MI.

Once the managers returned to their respective clubhouses, the grounds crew pulled the tarp back on the infield.

Hammers struggling after defeat to Saints

West Ham captain Mark Noble says his side's "laughable" performances can not get any worse following their 3-0 Premier League defeat to Southampton at London Stadium.

Tebow homers in 1st professional baseball at-bat

The home run he hit to left center is less telling than the showcase/tryout Tebow held August 30. Tebow also played left field on Tuesday. The Mets might have a real prospect in Tebow. I'm just getting a little bit better every day. Tebow is a former National Football League quarterback who played for the Broncos and more.
