Manchester United is managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho

Last season, Mercedes ran the gamut, as expected. But internally, there was a battle between Lewis Hamilton and eventual champion Nico Rosberg. That battle won’t be reignited this season, as Rosberg elected to retire after winning his first title. That left an opening on the team, which then managed to secure Valtteri Bottas from Williams to fill the vacancy.

There were several other driver lineup changes, including the retirement and quick unretirement of Felipe Massa at Williams, and the Manor Racing Team folded in the offseason. On top of that, Formula 1 has a new ownership in Liberty Media, and longtime executive in charge, Bernie Ecclestone, has been ousted after several decades in the role.

You can find a season preview right here and a look at all the big and small changes that occurred this offseason right here. Below, you’ll find information on how to watch races online and on television in the United States, as well as a full schedule for the season and results, updated throughout the year.

Between Alabama and LSU, there’s at least five without blinking. Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett and Tennessee DE Derek Barnett are the other first-round locks. Include Robinson and White, and there’s nine. Then you need three more from the group of Humphrey, Williams, Missouri DE Charles Harris and Florida’s defense. Right now, it looks frustratingly short.

From our soccer editor Kevin McCauley: “Manchester United is managed by former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, and they got absolutely stomped in London earlier this year. Mourinho was pretty mad about new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte celebrating all of the goals like a madman, so Man United will be motivated to get some revenge.”

Draymond Green shut down a Blazers comeback by bending basketball to his will

Elite Mens Jason Myers Jersey
So savor this type of Green game, which highlights both why he probably should be Defensive Player of the Year and how the Golden State offense would lose a crucial element if Green was absent. And if you thought his game was good, just imagine if he had actually thrown down that dunk.

Somehow, in a game he finished with a line of 19-12-9-3-5, Green actually could have done more.

Brock, their starter at cornerback the last two seasons (and a member of the Super Bowl team in 2012), was arrested Thursday night. The 49ers announced they were releasing him Friday afternoon.

On Monday, the first day of offseason workouts, Shanahan explained why they released Brock and how they would approach such cases 鈥?especially with draft prospects, primarily Joe Mixon, with violence against women in their past. It won’t be a blanket situation, as the Ravens have done with all such prospects, but a case-by-case basis.
Elite Mens Reshad Jones Jersey
I would never say 鈥?you’re dealing with peoples lives, so Id never want to use a situation as sending a message,Shanahan said.Its just us trying to do the right thing, whatever that is. I think each situations different and youve got to look into every situation, gather all the information that you can. When you do, you try as hard as you can to make the right decision and I think thats what I felt we did.

Since Brock had only been charged, and not tried or convicted or even entered a plea, the 49ers run the risk of judging him prematurely.

Martavis Bryant moves one step closer to reinstatement

A source told Sporting News Bryant met Thursday with the NFLs Management Council as part of his efforts for reinstatement from a year-long drug suspension. Among the conditions for being cleared to play again, Bryant was told to assemble a plan detailing safeguards that would help him prevent a relapse upon returning to Pittsburgh, the source said.

Bryant also will have to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell or one of his representatives once the leagues medical director and medical advisor submit their recommendation about reinstatement per the NFLs substance-abuse policy.

When my son grows up, and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is, I don’t want him to say, ‘Hey dad. Why did you go when you knew it was wrong?’, said Long, who signed with the Eagles this offseason.

Authentic Mens Patrick Marleau Jersey In the video, following a Patriots fan saying he was tired of the team being labeled alt-right McCourty said he wanted to change the perception.
Marek Mazanec Mens Jersey
Now, obviously, you want to switch the narrative, McCourty said. So for me, it was simple. I don’t believe in excluding other people.

McCourty later said in the video that he knew right away he would not go.

The Patriots’ ties to Donald Trump come in large part due to friendships the president holds with quarterback Tom Brady, head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.

Fans in the video also thanked the Patriots for skipping the visit.

The 5 types of people who say they’ll run the Boston Marathon and then don’t

Every year, Jeremy Jacobs goes to watch the Boston Marathon near the halfway point in Wellesley, MA. And every year he’s so moved and inspired by the people who help each other — the displays of humanity! — that he vows “next year I am totally going to do this.” But then a few months later Jeremy realizes that he a) doesn’t actually know how to sign up, b) he’s too lazy to Google it, and c) doesn’t run.

According to a nice new poll conducted by Yahoo!/Marist, 69 percent of Americans think it’s totally cool if athletes smoke weed to recover from the wear and tear that comes from being a nice professional athlete.

Limited Kids Artem Anisimov Jersey Here’s the nice quote from the nice article on Yahoo!, a nice website.

69 percent of the 1,122 adults questioned would have no problem with athletes using marijuana to recuperate from the physical impact of their sports. Twenty-six percent of respondents said they disapproved, while 5 percent said they didn’t know.

Authentic Arian Foster Jersey Are these actual problems or just Boise Problems? Are the kinks in the system, or have the bounces just gone the wrong way at precise times?

My guess is more latter than former. Over the last five years, USF is the only mid-major to recruit better on average. BSU’s five-year S&P+ average is 27th overall and better than that of teams like Tennessee, Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Nebraska, or Texas. They have ranked first in S&P+ among MWC teams in each of the last three years, even if bounces and tiebreakers have gone against them.

This time he won’t be in the final group and it sounded like he relished being the hunter for once.

It was less a boast and more an admittance that he keeps contending here not because he hammers the ball off the tee. Lengthening it isn’t going to mitigate his ability to figure out how to keep getting into contention and winning. It might not be fear, but that should make his contemporaries a little disconsolate.

Now comes another Sunday. This time he won’t be in the final group and it sounded like he relished being the hunter for once. Spieth is only two shots off the lead with only three players ahead of him. He knows firsthand how it can change quickly on a Sunday. It’s a loaded board but he’ll be the focus on the grounds tomorrow and his competitors and the crowd will feel it from the first birdie, which, given his track record, will come. One of the leaders, Justin Rose, said Saturday night that “Jordan obviously has a special relationship with the Masters.” So they’re thinking about it too.

Spieth said that he’s approached the week “not really giving” a shit (he pulled up before blurting out the curse, of course) and tomorrow is going to be pedal down from the start. “I plan to play aggressive … finishing fifth versus 10th tomorrow doesn’t mean much to me, so that frees me up.” He’s already done almost everything on this course and now gets to attempt a chasedown of Rosie, Rickie, and Sergio. His past here makes his presence on a leaderboard a greater Masters. It’s going to be a hell of a show on Sunday at Augusta.

Welcome to the slowest part of the offseason. The draft, OTAs and training camp are all weeks or months away. Fortunately, this break in the action gives us a chance to review the league post free agency. There are still a few big fish out there, but it’s a good time to take an early look at the wide receiver in fantasy football.

Ranking receivers this early is a tough task. Where do you rank someone like Brandin Cooks who has been a top 20 player, but finds himself in a new situation competing with Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski for targets? Do you completely write off Torrey Smith after two wasted seasons in San Francisco? Can he find enough targets to be fantasy relevant alongside newly acquired Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Matthews in Philadelphia?

Maybe Duke just needs a clean start this go-round.

Limited Bo Jackson Jersey MH: Eastern time zone is fine, until you get to the 10 p.m. hour during a game. Then you just feel anxious about staying up so late to watch the Warriors.

JD: I have no specific problem with Eastern time other than late-night NBA. But also that can be fun sometimes because everyone is tired the next day with you. It’s solidarity.

Now we have Hawaii and Pacific. Man, Hawaiian time fell for me, but you’re right. It’s just too dang early. Honestly, I have a hard time coming up with a single reason why Pacific is better though.

Limited Frankie Hammond Jersey MH: I will give the Pacific time zone credit for being the proper area to be in to watch the current best team in the NBA, and being an alright place for watching sports in general. Other than that, I would rather watch my primetime TV shows at the same time as the East Coast, because I will get FOMO so bad.

JD: I think this is the list. Congrats, Mountain time.

Troy Caupain leaves big shoes to fill, but fellow stars Jacob Evans and Gary Clark are back from Mick Cronin’s strongest UC team to date. Sacred Heart transfer Cane Broome should add even more offensive firepower to a roster that would appear to be the class of the AAC.

Maybe Duke just needs a clean start this go-round. Maybe they need fewer distractions. Or maybe they just need to avoid having a hundred different little things go against them over the course of a five-month span of time.

Nancy Kerrigan found Kristi Yamaguchi telling her to ‘break a leg’ as funny as the rest of us

A couple of weeks ago former ice skater Kristi Yamaguchi unintentionally made one of the best faux pas of all time when she decided to wish Nancy Kerrigan good luck on Dancing With the Stars.

Jamison Crowder Game Jersey Obviously she was just wishing Kerrigan good luck on the stage using the correct parlance (because you never tell someone “good luck” in the theatre). Still, given that Kerrigan is perhaps best-remembered for infamously being attacked and having her leg broken — well, it became a love of the internet.
Game Dave Parker Jersey
Would Kristi shy away from the phrase? Hell no. She was back on Monday night, and this time she had a sign.

Obviously Yamaguchi and Kerrigan are close friends, and Nancy held the sign with her in solidarity. So kudos to both of them for seeing the humor in the moment and going with it. Also, top marks to Kristi for the sign. Outlining those foil letters is a solid move.

Demand for quality passers surpassed the supply long before Romo decided to hang up his cleats. Now at least nine teams are primed to tap that shallow well before the 2017 season gets underway. The Patriots don’t have to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason, but his value will only increase as teams get more desperate. With New England low on draft capital following trades for Brandin Cooks and Kony Ealy, expect Belichick and his crew to up the ransom needed to free Garoppolo from Foxborough.

Still, compensatory picks give them three selections in the third round, and they could use one on someone like Taylor Moton out of Western Michigan. Moton is coming off of a solid senior season at right tackle, but he played both guard and tackle in college and has the versatility to play either at the next level.

Both offenses put together clock-eating drives with a total of seven possessions in the second half

Dwight Lowery Game Jersey Rookie quarterback Geno Smith was labeled a poor cold-weather quarterback coming out of the draft, thanks largely in part to a loss in a snowy Yankee Stadium for the Pinstripe Bowl to close his college career. The numbers, however, indicate the West Virginia product will be just fine in the cold: he went 4-1 in games where the temperature dipped under 41 degrees and completed 71 percent of his passes for 1,215 yards, 10 touchdowns and no picks. Nevertheless, with his own receiving corps maimed by injuries and the hard-running duo of Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to rely on, look for Rex Ryan to lean heavily on the run this week.

Jason Garrison Game Jersey The Jets are limiting opponents to a league-best 73.8 yards per game and have dominated the line of scrimmage so far in 2017. While the defensive front gave up 120 rushing yards during a 27-20 win over the Bills in Week 3, 40 of those were to a quarterback. They dominated Spiller, who rushed 10 times for an average of 0.9 yards per carry.

鈥淚t is clear that Mr. Familia regrets what transpired that night and takes full responsibility for his actions. Mr. Familia already has undergone 12 ninety-minute counseling sessions with an approved counselor specializing in the area of domestic violence, and received a favorable evaluation from the counselor regarding his willingness to take concrete steps to ensure that he is not involved in another incident of this type.

Both offenses put together clock-eating drives with a total of seven possessions in the second half. Carolina had the benefit of having time to respond and the Panthers took full advantage. With the win, Carolina improved to 7-3 while New England dropped to 7-3.
