Will Ferrell and his hilarious character from Anchorman stole the show (briefly) at the Australian Open when he came out to ask Roger Federer just a few important questions after his win at the Australian Open's opening round on Tuesday:- Tonight you seemed like a gazelle out there on the court. Would you describe your game as a silky gazelle?- You're 32 years old, you seem ageless. Are you a witch or a vampire?- Is it true you only eat wombat meat? Have you ever tasted wombat meat?- Does it get annoying when (the crowd) screams 'come on Roger!' over and over again?

Saints fans in New Orleans are letting their team and rookie defensive back Marcus Williams know they still love them even after Sunday’s heart-breaking loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Fans put up a billboard in the city telling Williams— who missed a key tackle on the last play of Sunday’s game—that his mistake isn’t worth dwelling on. “Dat’s OK Marcus,” the billboard read. “We (love) our Saints.” On the last play of Sunday’s NFC Divisional Round game against the Vikings, Williams missed a key tackle on Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs which led to Diggs’ 61-yard, game-winning touchdown. Williams was seen crying in the Saints’ locker room after the loss by reporters.

Three batters into his major league debut, Milwaukee Brewers starter Zach Davies was working quickly. Twice while Andrew McCutchen batted against him for the first time, McCutchen stepped out of the batter's box and called time. "It's something that he was used to," Pirates reliever Rob Scahill said. "He wants to work fast to stay within the clock and, obviously, we don't have that here." Davies' Sept. 2 debut was his first start of the year when he wasn't subject to the 20-second pitch clock, an experiment that began in the Arizona Fall League and continued at the Class AA and AAA levels this year. As Major League Baseball tries to increase the pace of play, they installed pitch clocks in the minors in addition to the measures enacted in the majors this season. Pitchers have 20 seconds after receiving the ball from the catcher to begin their delivery or at least come to a set position. If they don't, the batter is awarded a ball. Batters must be in the box and alert to the pitcher … [Read more...] about Baseball pitch clock decreases game time but players union skeptical of use in majors

When the Western Hills girls’ basketball job opened up at the end of last season, senior-to-be Montana Muravchick had the perfect candidate in mind: her brother. “She came to me and said, ‘Hey, we want a fun coach and someone who’s gonna push us for the season. Why don’t you apply?’” said Brandon Muravchick, who was a boys’ coach at Elkhorn Middle School. Brandon, 37, hadn’t coached girls since his first time on the sidelines back in 2001, when Buddy Ritchie approached him to coach an intramural team. Brandon was reluctant then — “I’m not coaching no basketball team,” Brandon told Ritchie at the time —– and was reluctant last spring about obliging his sister. He talked it over with his wife and daughters and decided to apply. Brandon in June was named head girls’ basketball coach at Western Hills. It’s been a big adjustment, he said, but having family always in his midst has made the … [Read more...] about Her brother’s never going to miss her basketball games. He’s the head coach.
