    Iran's footballers sang the national anthem before their game against the United States at the World Cup, after being warned by officials in Tehran they face retribution for their 'insulting' decision not to sing it ahead of the match against England. An Iranian politician warned their could be punishment if they didn't start singing the anthem for their final two games, against England and the United States.  Medhi Chamran, the chairman of Tehran city council, warned that the country 'will never allow anyone to insult our anthem', reports The Guardian.  They sang the anthem before the Wales game but stood stony-faced as the anthem played at the Khalifa International Stadium last Monday ahead of their 6-2 World Cup defeat to England. It was viewed as a stand of solidarity with protests currently engulfing Iran following the death of Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran's morality police on September 16. The 22-year-old died three days after her arrest in Tehran for allegedly breaching the Islamic dress code for women.  IRan's players sang their national anthem before the game against USA kicked off in...

    Zach LaVine made his season debut for the Chicago Bulls in the home opener Saturday at the United Center, but it wasn’t enough to hold off the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 128-96 loss. The Bulls have lost two straight after falling to the Wizards on Friday night in Washington. Here are six takeaways from the game. 1. Zach LaVine shows promise in return. After missing the first two games to manage a left knee injury, LaVine seemed to be back in peak form as he returned to the United Center. He drained a 3-pointer on the second Bulls possession and finished with 23 points on 9-for-16 shooting and added four assists. LaVine played 28 minutes, attacking double teams and ripping up the lane for searing layups in the first half. But he faded in the second half, scoring only six points while shooting 2-for-6 from 3-point range. Coach Billy Donovan said LaVine would play free of a minutes restriction, but it was clear the Bulls were hoping to keep their All-Star guard under the 38-minute cap the coach previously revealed....
    Zach LaVine made his season debut for the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. After missing the first two games to manage a left knee injury, LaVine seemed to be back in peak form in his return to the United Center. He drained a 3-pointer on the second Bulls possession of the game and finished with 23 points on 9-for-16 shooting and added four assists in the home opener. LaVine played 28 minutes, attacking double teams and ripping up the lane for searing layups in the first half. But he faded in the second half, scoring only six points while shooting 2-for-6 from 3-point range. And LaVine’s return wasn’t enough to buoy the Bulls, who fell 128-96 for a second straight loss. The starting lineup matched blows with the Cavaliers — who were missing All-Star guard Darius Garland — but the bench couldn’t keep up with the high pace of play. The Cavaliers scored 20 points on the fast break and gashed the Bulls’ secondary rotation any time coach Billy Donovan rested his starters. Donovan Mitchell led...
    Throughout training camp and the preseason, the Orlando Magic emphasized focusing on their process and honing in on the details as the next steps in their rebuild. The Magic’s progress will get their first real test in season opener against the Pistons on Wednesday at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. While they don’t count in the standings, preseason games matter. They allow for data collection, lineup/rotation experimentation and players to get a better feel for their teammates. They also help coaches and players see what else needs to be improved. For the Magic, that means better ball security, better defensive rotations that should cut down on the fouls and picking up on the opponent’s defensive coverages quicker. All things are worked on during preseason, but they’ll have a better understanding once games start to count against the win-loss record. “If we focus on the process of doing the right thing, the outcome will take care of itself,” coach Jamahl Mosley said after Tuesday’s practice, before the team departed for Detroit. “We’ll continue to celebrate the small successes with this team...
    Dalen Terry provided a spark of optimism for the Chicago Bulls in their first game of the preseason, but there’s still plenty to fix as they prepare to start the season without point guard Lonzo Ball. The bench unit led a thunderous second-half comeback, but the Bulls fell 129-125 in their preseason opener against the New Orleans Pelicans Tuesday night at the united Center. The opening half of the game painted a stark picture of ongoing flaws the Bulls still haven’t fixed after the offseason. Here are four takeaways from the first Bulls outing of the season. 1. Dalen Terry makes an impression. The rookie quickly won over Bulls fans in his preseason debut. Terry came off the bench in the second half, scoring 11 points to lead the Bulls to a 23-point comeback to regain the lead with four minutes to spare. The Bulls ultimately fumbled the lead, but Terry proved his ability to change a game, finishing with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals. Terry sparked the Bulls in transition through his defensive pressure, stealing the ball...
    Greg Roman’s playbook, always a subject of intense scrutiny in Baltimore, is always changing, always growing, a living document in a sport of constant upheaval. The Ravens offensive coordinator said early in training camp that there’s “20% new stuff” in his inventory of calls. Then there’s the collection of run-pass-option concepts that coach John Harbaugh later said just hasn’t been completely “tapped into.” Who knows what else is hiding in there? Ravens players describe the breadth of Roman’s playbook the way they would a Cheesecake Factory menu. “You would think it’s just run, run, run, until you get here and see how thick and big the playbook is,” running back Mike Davis, in his first year in Baltimore, said last week. “I was just surprised at how big the playbook is.” More interesting than what’s in the playbook, though, is what’s actually called. Roman wants to make use of what he has in Baltimore. And even with most Ravens starters sitting out Thursday’s preseason opener against the Tennessee Titans, the 23-10 win could prove to preview the next iteration of...
    It started as a small chant Sunday, somewhere in the the upper deck, causing fans in the lower bowl to turn to neighbors in the baffling sound mixer of a big arena to ask, “What’re they saying?” It picked up clarity as it moved down to the lower bowl, then to the court where the Atlanta star who had trouble with his cross-over Sunday now was called out for his comb-over. “Trae is … balding!” the sing-song chant came in the second quarter of the Miami Heat’s 115-91 win in Game One of their playoff series. Forget the previous five watered-down months of NBA basketball. Sunday was the real thing, the kind of day no one needs to be told to come to play. Even this Heat crowd brought their playoff game. Balding chants on the opposing star? Inflammatory tactics with a smidge of creativity? You got the feeling Young didn’t enjoy being so well known this night. he Heat’s defense switched constantly on him, all five Heat players guarding him on a first-half possession. His eight points was his...

    THEN AND NOW: The stars of Friends Dow, S&P 500 take a breather after record rises © Provided by Sports Illustrated Typical Mets. Typical MetsNew season. New owner. Same old Mets. After their opening series against the Nationals was called off because of Washington’s positive COVID-19 tests, New York’s 2021 season got started on Monday night in Philadelphia. Jacob deGrom got the start and was stellar. He didn’t allow a run in six innings of work, striking out seven and allowing just three hits. He even drove in a run at the plate. But things went south once the Mets turned things over to the bullpen. After Miguel Castro worked a scoreless seventh, Trevor May quickly loaded the bases and was yanked in favor of Aaron Loup. Loup plunked Bryce Harper to force in a run and then allowed a single to J.T. Realmuto that tied the game. Then the Phillies blew the game open. Alec Bohm hit a routine grounder to third and the throw from Luis Guillorme, who had just entered the game as a...
    An anonymous McDonald's employee has revealed how the chain's limited-edition McRib is made. The employee, known only as @thatonedepressedginger, shared behind-the-scenes videos on TikTok that show what the McRib looks like when it arrives at restaurants. He then demonstrates how the frozen meat patties are cooked, kept warm, and slathered in sauce before they're served to customers. It's back! The McRib returned to all of McDonald's 14,400 US restaurants on December 2 for the first time since 2012 Surprise! Now an anonymous McDonald's employee has revealed how the chain's limited-edition McRib is made The McRib returned to all of McDonald's 14,400 US restaurants on December 2 for the first time since 2012. The boneless pork sandwich has long been a favorite of McDonald's fans — thanks in part to its exclusive status, since it only pops up for a limited time on a regional basis. It was invented in 1982 by McDonald's first executive chef, Rene Arend, who also invented the McNugget. Arend told Maxim in 2009 that he was inspired by pulled pork sandwiches he ate in Charleston,...
    Saying they're tired of 'empty gestures' in the fight for racial equality, Miami Dolphins players released a video announcing they will remain in the locker room for both the 'The Star-Spangled Banner' and 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' anthems prior to the team's season opener in New England on Sunday.  Similarly, the Houston Texans stayed off the field for both songs before Thursday night's NFL season opener in Kansas City. League stadiums are playing 'Lift Every Voice and Sing,' considered by many to be the 'black national anthem,' before each Week 1 game of the new season following commissioner Roger Goodell's admission in May that the NFL should have listened sooner to players' concerns about racism.   The Dolphins' video, which was released by ESPN's Jay Williams on Thursday, shows head coach Brian Flores and 18 of his players demanding action and disparaging what they see as symbolic actions and ineffective demonstrations. 'This attempt to unify only creates more divide,' several Dolphins players said in the edited video. 'So we'll skip this song and dance, and as a team we'll stay inside.' ...

This was a beatdown, with Kansas City leading 31-7 with under eight minutes remaining. © Provided by The Comeback And, in what is a scary thought for the rest of the NFL, the Chiefs’ offense may be even better than the one that won a Super Bowl last season. That’s because of the addition of running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who the Chiefs selected with the last pick of the first round in 2020 NFL Draft. Edwards-Helaire had 25 carries for 138 yards and a touchdown, with the score coming on this nifty 27-yard run: Is it too soon to name Clyde Edwards-Helaire the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year? pic.twitter.com/2AZROv0PIx — The...

    By Amir Vera and David Close | CNN The National Football League will kick off its season September 10 with fans in the stands, according to an announcement Monday. The Kansas City Chiefs, who won Super Bowl LIV, will host the Houston Texans at Arrowhead Stadium with only 22% capacity, the Chiefs said. The announcement comes as the NFL has struggled to determine how it will weather this season through the coronavirus pandemic. As of Monday night, the virus has infected more than 5.4 million Americans and killed more than 170,000, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Over 100 NFL players tested positive in the offseason and more than 50 tested positive when players began reporting to training camp earlier this month. Though the league announced safety protocols and canceled its preseason, at least 66 pro players have opted out of 2020 play. The Chiefs, in consultation with health officials and the NFL, said on their website tickets for the game will be sold and grouped in six seats or less. Fans will be required to wear a mask at all times while at Arrowhead except...
