Dave Dombrowski is still in charge in Boston, right?

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

Stephanie Apstein: Boston seems like a good fit. President of baseball ops Dave Dombrowski loves a free-agent splash and that lineup finished last in the AL in home runs last year. Jack Dickey: The Diamondbacks would be wise to keep him—he provided a Yoenis-Cespedes-to-the-Mets-in-2015 jolt to their season, slugging .741 in 232 at-bats with Arizona…


Sean Payton and Dirk Koetter’s handshake after Saints vs. Buccaneers was not at all friendly

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

Postgame handshakes are usually pretty predictable. There’s the shake itself, maybe a one-armed hug, and a brief exchange of pleasantries. Sean Payton and Dirk Koetter gave us something totally different on Sunday. The Buccaneers beat the Saints in dramatic fashion when Jameis Winston hit Chris Godwin with a touchdown with just nine seconds left to…


The Jaguars are selling a burger with blue buns for the Wild Card game and it looks radioactive

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

The Jaguars are selling an absolutely terrifying meal at their stadium for the Wild Card game. Some misguided soul down in Jacksonville decided it’d be a good idea to let fans sport their team’s color on the inside of their bodies as well as the outside, and I’m a little concerned. Actually, I’m a lot…


Three defensive backs on the team were suspended during the season.

The restaurant, Scaletta, owned by the former New York Cosmos player Fred Grgurev, is located on the Upper West Side near the American Museum of Natural History. It serves northern Italian fare and hosts a lot of soccer-related events due to the owner’s relationships and history in the game. Thanks to a mailslot missile from…


The NHL used to play games on Christmas like the NBA, but that stopped after 1971.

Posted by in New England Patriots

The NHL’s holiday roster freeze is spelled out in the collective bargaining agreement and traces its origins to the 1992 strike that was largely about playoff bonuses and free agency. A memorandum of understanding signed in 1993 included reference to a Dec. 19-27 roster freeze for trades and waiver. The wording was put into the…


Myles Garrett knows how to make a debut.

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

Brilliant play design by the Panthers in Detroit, and great orchestration by Cam Newton, to fake the read-option and shovel-pass the ball inside to Christian McCaffrey, his first touchdown of his NFL career. DeShone Kizer leaves the pocket too soon. He’s got to calm down, hang in and give his receivers a slightly longer chance…


There’s the temporal stuff, both collective and personal.

There’s no name for the designation, which is invented (just now) and arbitrary. But consider it something like Major League Soccer’s version of the EGOT. Great players typically seek team titles, along with the recognition of their individual talent and contribution. And then there’s the transcendent part, which is a lot more elusive. There’s a…


Thursday night’s Broncos-Colts game is set to kick off at 8:25 p.m. ET and air on NBC and NFL Network.

Posted by in New Orleans Saints

Last week’s “Thursday Night Football” matchup in Atlanta had a direct impact on the NFL playoff picture. Broncos vs. Colts in Week 15? Not so much. Both Denver and Indianapolis are eliminated from postseason contention, and while team execs might already have their eyes on the 2018 NFL Draft, the players on the field Thursday…


The Lightning outshot the Blue Jackets 23-6 in the period.

Posted by in New England Patriots

Tampa Bay kept up the flurry at 7:53 when Kucherov buried a wrist shot from the slot. Just short of a minute later, Conacher unloaded a one-timer from the left circle that beat Korpisalo. “They smelled blood, let’s be honest,” said Foligno, the Columbus captain. “We didn’t do anything right in those 10, 12 minutes….


Canada blasts Denmark; Sweden wraps up Group B at world juniors

Posted by in New England Patriots

Brett Howden scored twice and Canada rebounded from a snowy loss to the United States to beat Denmark 8-0 on Saturday night and win Group A in the world junior hockey championship. Also in Group B, the Czech Republic beat Belarus 6-5 at Key Center to improve to 2-1. Radovan Pavlik scored twice for the…
