One thing the NFL has over the MLB is the lack of travel. The Marlins and Cardinals had their outbreaks while on the road. The Broncos, for example, will spend eight nights in a hotel this year, the equivalent of the Rockies’ season-opening trip. The Broncos can fly, check into a hotel, stay within the walls of that hotel, get on the bus, play the game, get on the plane and fly home, all within 24 hours. … [Read more...] about Broncos Mailbag: Does receiver DaeSean Hamilton have a role … or even a spot on the roster?
Fleck and his staff discovered the late-blooming Bateman in a satellite camp for recruits in Atlanta before his senior year of high school. The Gophers were the first power conference program to offer him a scholarship, and he kept his commitment to them even after his exceptional final prep season led SEC schools Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas A&M and South Carolina to extend offers.

When he compared states’ per-capita wine consumption with their percentage of votes for Trump in 2016, a clear pattern emerged. Washington, D.C., is the most prolific wine consumer, at over 25 liters per person per year, and also favored Trump the least, giving him just 4.1% of its votes in the last presidential election.
