Kyle Larson feels like ‘last true racer’ in NASCAR – FOXSports.com

Friday, April 28, 2017

Many have heaped praise on Kyle Larson after his exceptional start to the 2017 season with four runner-up finishes, one win, and the points lead through eight races. Kevin Harvick even called Larson the “best driver to come into NASCAR since Jeff Gordon” in an interview after Larson won at Auto Club. But on Friday morning in a pre-practice media session at Richmond, Larson called himself the “last true racer”…

Friday, April 28, 2017

NFL DRAFT PHILADELPHIA (AP) With defensive studs everywhere in this draft, NFL teams turned offensive. With an emphasis on quarterbacks. Hardly stunning in a pass-happy league, except that no quarterbacks in this crop have been highly touted. Yet three went in the first dozen, with two whopping trades putting the Bears and Chiefs in position to grab QBs. Chicago paid a whopping price to move up one spot to second…

The Panthers add a do-it-all weapon with an edge in McCaffrey, who can line up in the slot, be a terrific zone runner (and let Jonathan Stewart take the between-the-tackles carries) and impact the return game from Day 1….

Steve Kerr’s health will decide who wins the NBA championship – FOXSports.com

Friday, April 28, 2017

The Warriors have time to wait — for now. They won’t need Kerr through the Western Conference finals, no matter whom they face. A Finals matchup against LeBron James is a different story. Forget Tyronn Lue; the King is his own in-game coach, adjusting Cleveland’s game plan from one possession to the next as he sees what the defense gives him. Draymond Green tries to do something similar…

The best XI if you combined Tottenham and Arsenal – FOXSports.com

Friday, April 28, 2017

There’s a reason some of the world’s biggest clubs have been sniffing around Kane. He’s really, really, really good. He’s got guile and craft while also showing off a strength that belies his frame. He can score headers, lasers, curlers, tap-ins, everything. Arsenal, meanwhile, have had to deploy Alexis at forward with their impotent stock of strikers. Kane takes this position easily.

Bowyer probably won’t earn fast lap or laps led points, but that’s not a deal breaker. At his price, a top-10 finishing…

Heading into Thursday, Thames is hitting .370/.489/.904 with 11 homers, 19 RBI and 27 runs.

How To Suck At Being A Sports Media Critic – Deadspin

Friday, April 28, 2017

By now, you’re used to this bizarre line of inquiry coming from NFL personnel execs. Jeff Ireland famously asked Dez Bryant if his mom was a whore. An Oregon defensive end was asked when he lost his virginity. O-lineman Willie Beavers was asked if he’d rather be a cat or a dog. It’s bad enough that NFL teams parade these guys out in Indianapolis to run drills and get measured…
