One of the most appealing parts of playing in the Pro Bowl is the location. The participants fly out to Hawaii during the cold winter months with a chance to hang out in the sun and warmth for a week.... The islands are famous for their consistently mild weather, rarely getting too hot and rarely getting cold at all. However, there are some unique weather phenomenons that happen in Hawaii that don't occur in many other places. Does the Pro Bowl actually exist? The possibility of humidity, rain, and vog is looming on Sunday afternoon at Aloha Stadium, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser. So, what is vog? No, it isn't some sort of deadly substance from a horror movie. According to Wikipedia, it is air pollution that comes from volcanoes when they release gasses into the air. That doesn't...

Dez Wells to handle the ball more for Terps

Washington Post - 24 Jan 2013 23:56
First, let's set the record straight. Dez Wells is not a point guard. He will not become a point guard, nor will he start at point guard for the Maryland men's basketball team. But when the mood... strikes, in certain situations and certain lineups that call for the sophomore swingman to act like a point guard, he'll occasionally bring up the basketball and run sets, much like he did against Boston College.

The NHL's comeback trail on television continues to see ridiculous numbers, as the network set a ratings record for their first-ever "Rivalry Wednesday" game. The Bruins-Rangers game, which went to... overtime and was overall a pretty great game, drew 956,000 viewers, the best-ever for NBC Sports Network, VERSUS, or OLN for a regular season game. The previous record was set on opening night of the 2011-12 season, when Flyers-Bruins drew 874,000 viewers on Oct. 6. The game also drew an 0.5 rating among adults 18-49, putting it among the top cable programs of the night. In fact, only ESPN's broadcast of Miami's stunning upset over Duke in college basketball drew a better rating among young adults, hitting an 0.6. There'll be more on this later, as the NHL and NBC will both likely have much to...

At his first press conference as general manager of the New York Jets, John Idzik shot down the rumors that the team was exploring trading cornerback Darrelle Revis, calling those rumors "way... premature." "I haven't even had a chance to sit down and really vet through our roster with Rex and his staff and the personnel staff," Idzik said, "so I think it would be presumptuous to say anything on that." It may be presumptuous to say they're looking for a trade, but it's not difficult to understand why the Jets would at least look into it. If the Jets conclude they can't keep him beyond 2013 (important to remember: the Jets can't franchise tag him after 2013), it's better to get something for him now than to get nothing for him later, when he walks in free agency. In determining what the Jets...

This 2013 NFL mock draft will map which prospects will fall off the map. The tragedy strikes nearly every year. A college football household name hears his name passed on pick, after pick, after pick.... While some players' phones still ring late into Day 1, others completely go unwanted in the first round. Here is an updated mock highlighting the most popular players who'll plummet on draft day. 1. Kansas City Chiefs: Geno Smith (QB, West Virginia) Andy Reid typically overachieves with QBs, but even he's not talented enough of a coach to fix Matt Cassell. Unless KC acquires a veteran passer before they're on the clock here, Smith is its only option. 2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jarvis Jones (OLB, Georgia) J.J. Watt had more sacks this season than the Jaguars. Scoreboard: Watt 20.5, Jags 20....

Malaga conceded an early goal but pulled one back quickly and will head into the halftime break with only 45 minute standing between them and a spot in the Copa del Rey semifinals. Barcelona got... Malaga's blood pressure up a little in the 6th minute when Cesc Fábregas made a beautiful turn around the defender and moved in to the box. Xavi was lurking to his left all alone but the ball got stuck on Cesc's foot and he couldn't complete the pass. Barca showed Malaga they were going to exploit the space they were being given in the middle and less than two minutes later, they took full advantage. Dani Alves made a perfectly timed overlapping run on the right before softly lofting a cross back across the box that was headed past Carlos Kameni to get Barca the opening goal of the match and a 1-0...

Andy Murray's demolition of Jeremy Chardy highlighted the improvement in his return game, and he now goes into his semifinal matchup with Roger Federer with an extra edge. Murray was relentless in his... 6-4, 6-1, 6-2 victory and showcased a dominant return against a player whose serve has been a powerful weapon in the past. Opening up a 4-0 lead, Murray demonstrated a killer instinct that has sometimes been lacking in his performances, never allowing Chardy to find rhythm. Federer, on the other hand, has been made to work very hard for his place in the tournament. Facing a higher quality of opponent can work either way for a player making a run at a Grand Slam title, and Federer has certainly had to deal with that. Overcoming Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in five sets, the Swiss master fought off a...

This season's 48-game shortened schedule will impact the NHL playoff picture by forcing teams to make important decisions sooner than they would in a normal 82-game season. Patience will not be shown... with players and coaches who don't perform. The expectations of teams and players are as high as they normally are, but with just 48 games to earn a playoff spot, mistakes will be more costly and each loss will add more pressure than usual. Let's examine how the shortened season will impact the playoff race. Poor Starts, Long Losing Streaks Could Eliminate Teams from Playoff Race In an 82-game schedule, teams can start off poorly, not win many of their first 20 games and still recover because there are 62 more games to play. If teams don't play well in the first 20 games this season, there's...

Meet 11-year-old Brooke Raboutou, pretty much one of the most passionate rock climbers in the world. And one who continues to amaze those in the sport because of how remarkable she is at such a young... age. A tip of the hat to BuzzFeed for spotting a wonderful mini-documentary posted by ThnkrTv on YouTube, as part of their Prodigies series. Raboutou is indeed a prodigy, showing expertise and talent far beyond her years in the sport of rock climbing. Not that any of this is a surprise. The little girl is the daughter of former world champion climbers, Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou and Didier Raboutou. You only have to watch the video to know both parents have given far more than mere genetics for the sport, because their house is nearly a live-in rock climbing training ground. More than Didier...

"The Rock" Johnson would ever be willing to star in any potential project. Talking to Fred Topel at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Luisi explained how the company ended up pairing with production company Lionsgate for its upcoming reboot of the popular Leprechaun horror movie franchise, Leprechaun: Origins: I come out of 12 years at Miramax so I have a lot of relationships from the Miramax days and when I went out and pitched our new business model to the people I knew at Lionsgate, they said, "Hey, you know what would be kind of fun?
