With Spring Training in full swing, two of Major League Baseball’s prized free agents finally signed new contracts with their new teams. The deals were nearly a week apart from each other and the wait was well worth it. These contracts are the two biggest free agent signings in MLB history, according to MLB.com. […]
March is on its way and so is the tradition of scrambling together brackets and rushing to the betting lines for NCAA March Madness, the annual riveting college basketball tournament composed of the best 68 teams of the year. […]
According to nj.com, on Dec. 20, as a 16-year-old wrestler from Buena High School was preparing for a match against his opponent from Oakcrest High School, he could not begin to imagine what would be asked of him before he stepped foot on the mat. […]
I love the smell of ice in the morning. The National Hockey League playoffs started a few weeks ago, and I’ve been enjoying myself immensely so far despite the fact that the New York Rangers failed to make the postseason for the first time since 2010. […]
After years of tanking, frustration and heartbreak, the Philadelphia 76ers are returning to the NBA playoffs. Unlike the 2012 team that fought hard to secure the eighth seed, the Sixers are rolling through the Eastern Conference with a 16-game winning-streak. […]
Ever since I saw the movie, “I, Tonya”, I’ve been obsessed figure skating — particularly the triple axel jump. The movie, which came out just before this year’s Winter Olympics, chronicles the victories and mishaps of Tonya Harding, the first American woman to land the triple axel jump in competition and the second in the world, in 1991.

The past two weeks have been awful as a New York Giants fan. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. There was no right answer when I was asked who I wanted to win Super Bowl LII. Yet here at the College, I’ve seen more green than ever, and I’m fairly sure some of the fans who supported the city of brotherly love are defectors of the Big Apple.
The U.S. men’s national soccer team’s elimination from World Cup qualification was monumentally embarrassing. Not only did the U.S. fail to qualify in a easy group, but it left its own fate against Trinidad and Tobago teams that had nothing at stake for them.
The U.S. men’s national soccer team’s loss against Trinidad and Tobago on Oct. 10, was not a surprise. It was an inevitable failure and an embarrassment to all previous American teams who competed on soccer’s grandest stage. […]
This past week the New York Yankees came back from three games down to beat the Cleveland Indians and win the American League division series. But can they go all the way?
The Bronx Bombers showed off in game five against the Indians with two home runs by shortstop Didi Gregorius to win the game. The Yankees lost the first two games, making even the most loyal Yankees fans sweat a little. Through sheer determination and willpower, the Yankees won three straight games. […]
