Ohtani strikes out Trout to give Japan the championship

Midway through the sixth inning, cameras showed Shohei Ohtani sitting in Japan’s bullpen, ready to warm up just in case. The do-it-all dual threat had said yesterday after the victory over Mexico that he was ready if needed.

A Kyle Schwarber homer off Yu Darvish on the top of the eight put the USA within one run of tying it, in came Ohtani to close a game for the first time in his professional career. Shohei walked Jeff McNeil to start th

Mexico beats Great Britain in WBC

Mexico prevailed against Britain at Chase Field on Tuesday night and a win on Wednesday over Canada would mean advancing to the next round as Pool C leaders. It wasn’t quite a packed house in Arizona but fans did their job as well as any other day.

Walker had an espectacular eight-strikeout performance in which he tolerated a single hit and issued a walk trough four innings. The Shreveport native is now the record holder for single-game strikeouts for Mexico in the history of the World Baseball

Massive week for Alcaraz and Rahm

Spaniards look to win the “fifth major” of their respective disciplines.

Both Jon Rahm and Carlos Alcaraz are coming off disappointing weeks and look to right the ship in this week’s so-called majors (Indian Wells ends on the 19th). Carlitos withdrew from Acapulco after suffering a hamstring strain during his defeat to Cameron Norrie at Rio, meanwhile, Jon finished T39 after three consecutive 72+ rounds of golf at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

ATP’s number 2 player in the world will start hi

Alcaraz might not make it to Acapulco

Alcaraz might not make it to Acapulco

The Spaniard just lost the Rio Open final to Cameron Norrie.

The chance for revenge arose rather quickly for Cameron Norrie, who just last Sunday lost the final to Carlos Alcaraz on the Argentinian soil. It looked bleak early on the second set. Down 5–7, 0–3 and 0–30, the British product devoted more energy in arguments with the chair umpire than in his own tennis.

However, he was able to somehow flip the script and claim the title in Rio (5–7, 6–4, 7–5),

What is being overlooked in the Trubisky discussion

There are only a few things that America enjoys more than talking quarterback.

With the Steelers not anywhere near this week’s Super Bowl and the looooong, tortuous days between the Conference Championship games and the Big One causing all kinds of struggles within the confines of our football-obsessed minds, Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette presented us this Tuesday with the gift that keeps on giving when he talked about Mitchell T

A fumble near the goal line should be costly

A fumble near the goal line should be costly

The ‘fumble-touchback rule’ has long been hated by football fans, but it shouldn’t.

You will despise me by the end of this article.

I grew up a Steelers fan and as such embraced the defensive side of the ball from a young age. After being spoiled by the heroics of Troy Polamalu and the nastiness of James Harrison, my love for high-scoring games never came to be (my football-obsessed friends hate me because of it).

Of course I enjoy watching Patric

El Taunting Arruina la Diversión

Pocas veces en la historia de nuestro amado juego se ha percibido tal unanimidad en contra de una regla. La NFL decidió poner énfasis sobre el famoso taunting (la burla hacia el rival) durante esta temporada y la respuesta de jugadores, aficionados y expertos se ha hecho sentir por igual: es repugnante.

No es que se haya creado una nueva legislación para evitar que los rivales le falten al respeto a sus compañeros de profesión y en lugar de ello se hablen de usted mientras se golpean por tres h
