Fly Phils Fly! Eagles star Jason Kelce center of attention at camp

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce got plenty of attention for his salty language during the Super Bowl celebration parade. The All-Pro says he tried to tone it down when he spoke inside the Phillies clubhouse on Monday.

But once Kelce started his speech, he found that old habits die hard.

I probably cursed a little more, actually, Kelce said. At least through the start of the speech I made an effort to not curse and then that quickly faded.

Wearing a red No. 62 Phillies spring training jersey, Kelce was the main guest during the first official day of team workouts.

In a similar way, Rippon’s eyebrow evolution is a complement to the rest of his story. Figure skaters do their own makeup, so even though they are responding to what the judges want to see from competitors’ appearances the way that each skater styles their hair, or does their makeup, or shapes their eyebrows, is a indicator of how they see themselves or what makes them feel like the best version of themselves on the ice.

The CFL has long used a method known as a negotiation list, rather than a draft, for allocating American players. Each team can claim up to 45 players and retain their rights for as long as desired. When Americans want to play in the CFL, they must negotiate exclusively with the team that owns their rights.

The list has historically been kept secret, but the league changed its policy this year to allow for a partial release of up to 10 names per team.

Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel was not among the 10 players announced by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, but he is known to be on their list and spent months in negotiations with the team this winter. He currently plans to participate in The Spring League, a domestic developmental league based in Austin, Texas, but has not ruled out playing in the CFL.

During a Twitter conversation with CFL star Duron Carter, son of NFL Hall of Fame receiver Cris Carter, Manziel said in part: If that’s the path I choose, TRUST ME, I’m gunna let it fly.royals_013

Because Cooks had established himself as a runner, he was not considered a defenseless player and the hit was within the rules.

Super Bowl 52, also known as Super Bowl LII, is set for Sunday, Feb. 4, at U.S. Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings since the 2016 season. The game will be the first Super Bowl hosted by Minnesota since Super Bowl XXVI on Jan. 26, 1992.

This year it’s the Eagles vs. the Patriots, but regardless of which teams are in the Super Bowl, commercials before, during and after the game have become must-see TV over the years. Here is everything you need to know about commercials during the 2018 Super Bowl.

Not that Brady cares, but because those accomplishments in the eyes of the majority do indeed already define his career, they’re the reason why his retirement would not be met with debate. Only admiration. Brady has nothing left to prove.

Of all the notable NFL retirements after Super Bowl victories — John Elway, Jerome Bettis and Peyton Manning being the most recent examples — none featured the sport’s unquestioned all-time best at his position. The closest comparison is linebacker Ray Lewis, who announced his impending retirement weeks before his Ravens reached and won Super Bowl XLVII. And Lewis, because of an injury, started only six games during his final regular season in 2012. Brady started all 16 games in 2017 and led New England to a 13-3 record.

It was the first reception of the game for Cooks, who also had a 1-yard rush, as the Eagles held a 9-3 lead at the time of his exit.

The longstanding argument for Joe Montana as the GOAT is the fact that he went 4-0 in Super Bowls. But in Montana’s decade-long heyday for the 49ers, he got to “only” six championship games, adding one more AFC loss while wrapping up his career in Kansas City.

Brady is the first player with five rings all for the same team. (Hall of Fame defensive end Charles Haley got his splitting time with San Francisco and Dallas.) Going way back pre-Super Bowl, the only pro football run that compares is Otto Graham’s 7-1 record in championship games in eight years for the Browns, in two leagues.

So then you go bigger, to the NBA with Michael Jordan, the modern consensus overall GOAT. In a sport more influenced by individual superstars who play both offense and defense, Jordan also had compact glory, with his six championships coming in a span of eight seasons.bills_049

But Francesa’s voice, first paired with Russo in 1989, and then solo since 2008, really has sound-tracked so many New York afternoons for almost 30 years. Francesa’s shows were often the only place to find extended interviews with embattled coaches and obstinate jocks, alongside the calls from preening Yankee-lovers, despondent Mets fans, and the sadsacks who wanted to spend but 90 seconds talking hockey. Francesa made an art of sparring with callers, sometimes condescending to them, sometimes berating them. It was all an act, he has said, but he has performed this act for tens of thousands of hours of radio. Those who would consider themselves his biggest fans know no other version of Mike Francesa.

And deservedly he bade his almost-farewell from a museum. WFAN invented the sports-talk radio format, and Francesa was the station’s biggest sports-talking star.

Rob Gronkowski says he got ‘yelled at’ after ‘horse’ TD celebration with Brandin Cooks

Riding the tight end like he’s a small horse is frowned upon in this establishment.

“I guess those were the biscuits,” Gronkowski said Sunday. “I guess he wasn’t making any more, so he made up for it. But I still want those biscuits.”

However, the second-year passer’s inability to stay healthy or take the reins in one of the league’s saddest quarterback races (non-Browns division) is not a good sign.

He’ll miss Sunday’s game thanks to an ankle sprain, but his latest turn at the top of the Denver depth chart wasn’t especially encouraging. In 18 dropbacks against the Raiders, he gained just 38 net yards (41 passing, 20 rushing, -23 on sacks) and tossed an interception for a 38.4 passer rating. 14 straight incompletions would have netted him a 39.4.

For the seniors, the New Mexico Bowl is one last opportunity to go out a winner.

“Ryan, (running back) Tony (Pittman), they’re my best friends,” Litton said following the loss. “When I first came in, I was the fourth-string. I was a freshman who people really didn’t expect much from. I stuck with them. I came in and studied film with these guys and lifted with them. They believed in me.

Carolina outshot the Kings 34-21, yet despite putting on the pressure could not find the net for the opening two periods.

The Kings struggled early, too, before Toffoli and Kopitar teamed up twice in less than three minutes in the second.

But the Kings’ offense stalled at that point and the Hurricanes mounted a comeback.

NFL reviewing Sean Payton’s conduct near end of Saints-Falcons game, report says

Sean Payton’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty near the end of Thursday night’s Saints-Falcons game is being reviewed by the NFL, ESPN reported Friday.

The NFL could fine Payton for his action Thursday night.

Cousins said he persuaded coach Alvin Gentry to delay subbing him back into the game in the fourth quarter because he didn’t want to disrupt New Orleans’ surge into the lead.

“He wanted me to get AD a break, but at that moment we were kind of going on a run, so I said, `Coach, let `em roll,” Cousins recalled. “I just didn’t want to be the guy to break what we had going on.”

Ginn: “It’s the league, man. It just makes me want to get better and better and do more and more, because I’m at the age (32) where a guy can give up on you kind of quick because of your age. When they’ve seen you do whatever for how many years, it’s kind of like repetitive and you ain’t changing it, they’re going to figure out if they need to go somewhere else.

“It’s a hard thing to really swallow when you see a Hall of Famer or a great like that.”

In early November, Jones hired famed attorney David Boies as a threat to sue the league if the compensation committee approved Goodell’s extension, an extension that all owners, including Jones, authorized in May. No suit was ever brought. However, Jones successfully delayed Goodell’s extension; many owners expected that it would be approved months ago.royals_030

Cousins has already proven to Washington that he’s a quality starting quarterback.

The New Orleans Saints looked toast down 15 late in the fourth quarter, but Drew Brees orchestrated two touchdown drives in the final minutes to lead the team back against Washington and get a 34-31 win in overtime.

There’s not much more the team can learn about him over the next few games that it wouldn’t already know.

“I’m sure cheeseburgers will be on the menu,” said Thompson. “And these guys are never short on opinions. Jim Cornette is the greatest talker in the history of the business.

The scheme earned one victory, the organization’s first in NASCAR, in the MENCS event at North Carolina Motor Speedway (Rockingham) on Oct. 22, 1989. The scheme, originally sponsored by Stroh Light, ran in the MENCS during the 1988 and 1989 seasons. During that time period, the Roush Fenway Ford earned one win, 17 top-fives, 28 top-10s and led 602 laps in 58 total starts.

Is Fromm who Gardner told us he was? Because he just threw a horribly thrown ball to start the second half, and Duke Dawson just picked it off. Ugh, weird stuff always happens at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.

How are TCU quarterback Kenny Hill and his Horned Frogs going to turn it around … never mind, KaVontae Turpin just ran past everyone for a 94-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on the opening kickoff of the second half.
