Super Bowl

first_imgWe are about to embark on another Super Bowl weekend.  On one hand, Philadelphia is trying to win their first Super Bowl while New England is going for—-I lost count as to how many.  I would guess most of the nation will be rooting for the underdog Eagles.  I know I will be.You have to give New England’s entire organization credit for putting together winning teams year after year.  With Brady at the helm, it seems no lead is safe.  You wonder if that 40-year old body can pull out another one on Sunday if it becomes necessary.  Prepare to watch, because if nothing else, the commercials and half-time show will entertain you.last_img read more

Serena heads to French Open with time running out for number 24

first_imgRelatedPosts Serena pulls out of Italian Open Serena dumped out of US Open French Open to allow 11,500 fans daily in three show courts Serena Williams will have just two weeks to shake off the disappointment of a semi-final loss in the U.S. Open.She has to resume her pursuit of a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title on the claycourts at the French Open. The American great has remained one title behind Margaret Court’s all-time record since bagging her 23rd Grand Slam singles trophy at the Australian Open in January 2017.Williams has lost four Grand Slam finals since returning to the circuit in 2018 following the birth of her daughter.She once again fell short on Thursday when she bowed out to Victoria Azarenka with a 1-6 6-3 6-3 defeat in the U.S. Open semi-finals.“I don’t know. I mean, it’s obviously disappointing,” Williams told reporters, before confirming that she would participate in the French Open.“At the same time, I did what I could today. I feel like other times I’ve been close and I could have done better. Today, I felt like I gave a lot.” Many pundits have said she might be running out of time to win a Grand Slam again.It was definitely not getting any easier for Williams.The American will turn 39 a day before the main draw kicks off in Paris on her least rewarding surface where she won her third and last title in 2015.Asked how the string of losses deep in the tournaments affects her morale as she strives to become the most successful women’s player, Williams said, “I don’t know.“I just … I don’t know. I haven’t thought about that actually.” Williams had, however, started really strongly in Thursday’s last match on the Arthur Ashe Stadium court and cantered through the opening set with three breaks of Azarenka’s service.“Then she just kept fighting. She just changed and started playing better and better. Maybe I took a little too much off the gas pedal at some point,” Williams rued, saying her opponent just kept improving through the match.“I made a lot more errors. I didn’t win a lot on my second serves. I served well, but I didn’t dominate the way I needed to in that.”(Reuters/NAN)Tags: 24th Grand Slam titleFrench OpenSerena Williamslast_img read more

Henry: We ignored Suarez clause

first_imgLiverpool owner John Henry has revealed Luis Suarez did have a £40million buy-out clause in his last contract – but the club decided it counted for nothing when Arsenal tried to buy the striker. Press Association Speaking this weekend at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, in a filmed panel discussion seen by Press Association Sport, Henry said Liverpool stood a chance of winning the Premier League title this season, and suggested keeping Suarez had been key to that prospect. Suarez has since signed a new four-and-a-half-year contract with Liverpool. “Luis Suarez is the top scorer in the English Premier League which is arguably the top soccer league in the world,” Henry said. “And he had a buy-out clause – I don’t know what degree I should go into this – but he had a buy-out clause of £40million – more than 60 million (US) dollars. So Arsenal, one of our prime rivals this year … they offered £40million and one pound for him and triggered his buy-out clause. “But what we’ve found over the years is that contracts don’t seem to mean a lot in England – actually not in England, in world football. It doesn’t matter how long a player’s contract is, he can decide he’s leaving. “We sold Fernando Torres for £50million. We didn’t want to sell but we were forced to. “For the first time (with Suarez) we took the position that we weren’t selling. “Since apparently these contracts don’t seem to hold, we took the position we’re just not selling and it’s been great for Luis, it’s been great for us, and what will happen at the end of year … I think we’re going to make Champions League and we have a small chance of winning the Premier League this year. “We have three gentlemen up front: Suarez, (Raheem) Sterling and (Daniel) Sturridge. Those three are young, and I think Luis and those three could be together for a long time.” center_img The Gunners were rebuffed when they made a bold move for the Uruguayan last summer, offering £40million plus one pound in the belief it would trigger the clause and allow them to open transfer talks. Suarez made it clear in a series of interviews last summer that he wanted to leave Anfield, but the Merseysiders were not willing to sell, even at the point where his deal said he should have been clear to depart. last_img read more

Gerrit Cole celebrates $324 million deal by showing off his 2001 ‘Yankees Forever’ sign

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US New York Yankees broke the bank to land Cole, who despite being brought up in California, has been a ‘Yankees forever’ since childhood.

It’s fair to say that the sign could have faded over time and hence there’s a change in the colour. Multiple sources confirm that Gerrit Cole did carry the same Yankees forever signboard of 2001, and it faded over time as it was on his wall for some time. Clearly, Gerrit Cole is true to his word and him preserving his 2001 signboard is a testament to the fact that he is a Yankee today, tomorrow and forever!Also Read: MLB: Gio Gonzalez Adds To Chicago White Sox’s Rotation After Signing $5 Million Deal LIVE TV Written By WATCH US LIVE Also Read: MLB’s London Series Games Between Yankees And Red Sox Raised Around £37m In City’s Economy Last Updated: 2nd January, 2020 23:25 IST Gerrit Cole Celebrates $324 Million Deal By Showing Off His 2001 ‘Yankees Forever’ Sign Gerrit Cole grabbed headlines when he made a record-breaking move to the Yankees.
