However, McIlroy agonisingly left his attempt inches short and Molinari held his nerve to hole out for par, meaning he had dropped just two shots all week, the last coming on the 10th hole of the second round. I'm thinking par, par, and that makes the whole difference. "Today I played similar to Saturday, I could not get going and gave Molinari a lead early on". (more...)

In what seems like a perpetual search for big-bodied wide receivers, the Seattle Seahawks took a look at Brandon Marshall earlier this month, bringing in the 34-year-old to gauge his health coming off a severe ankle injury. They apparently did not like what they saw enough to sign him.

Anthony Rizzo slide: Major League Baseball says it should have been interference Anthony Rizzo slide: Major League Baseball says it should have been interference
- May 30, 2018

I believe Rizzo had a right to feel he made a good baseball play to help his team. While he appreciated MLB's reversal, it also offered little solace. "Sport isn't fair sometimes". "I understand that there's old-school baseball, but we're not in old-school baseball anymore". Rizzo offered an apology to Diaz when he came to the plate in the ninth inning on Monday, and Pittsburgh reliever Richard Rodriguez opted not to retaliate. (more...)

Based on the evidence of the past six weeks, it's resounding. "I don't think that there was too much of a difference", Djokovic said after that setback, "which is great for me, great news for me". He is simply too good for that record to be extended any longer. The last 10 years at Roland Garros have seen seven first-time French Open women's winners, and it wouldn't be surprising to see that trend continue in 2018. (more...)

Raheem Sterling is a victim of vicious tabloid snobbery
- May 29, 2018

One angry individual even went as far as to argue Sterling should be cut from England's World Cup squad for his decision to get the tattoo. It is more about a vicious tabloid snobbery.

But the teams played 4 on 4 for the next two minutes, with Wilson getting whistled for interference, while David Perron went off for cross checking in the ensuing scuffle. Adding to that pressure, the team the Caps played is a stellar Vegas franchise in its first season in the league.
