    The Chicago Bears are making progress toward completing their purchase of Arlington International Racecourse in Arlington Heights, officials say, with the clock ticking toward a deadline to seal the deal in 2023. Village documents obtained by the Tribune show the highest levels of the team’s administration, including Chairman George McCaskey, have been involved in meetings to make the purchase and subsequent construction of a new football stadium happen. The documents showed that the team deposited $125,000 with the village for studies of the stadium proposal, and they also included a former baseball executive’s proposal to add a minor league baseball complex to the site. In September 2021, the team announced it had signed a purchase agreement to buy the property from Churchill Downs Inc. for $197 million, pending final approvals by both parties. Churchill Downs Inc. subsequently closed the famed racetrack. The Bears would have to break their lease at Soldier Field to build a new stadium at Arlington. The new baseball fields were proposed by William Larsen, former general manager of the Kane County Cougars minor league team. In...

    THOMAS TUCHEL has warned of the ‘danger’ Chelsea face trying to rebuild during a takeover battle. The club is in limbo while four bidders jostle for control and it is hampering boss Tuchel’s summer spending plans. 2Chelsea face seeing first-team centre-backs Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger depart this summerCredit: Getty 2Stamford Bridge manager Thomas Tuchel says the 'complex' situation of not having a new owner yet makes his job more difficultCredit: Rex Experienced defender Antonio Rudiger is leaving and playing partner Andreas Christensen looks set to follow but Chelsea cannot buy replacements until a new board is in place. Tuchel said: “I would be less concerned if we had the same ownership and we could rely on our structure. But this is also in question. “We are not concerned but aware of the danger that the situation is maybe a bit more complex. “It can be complex enough if you lose a player like Tony and maybe lose another one like Andreas.

    CHISINAU, Moldova (AP) — When Sheriff Tiraspol became the first club from the former Soviet state of Moldova to qualify for the Champions League last month, it seemed like the feel-good story of the day. Just qualifying for the Champions League was in itself a huge victory. But the team from the breakaway region of Transnistria, a disputed territory unrecognized by the international community, got off to a winning start — a big one. Sheriff stunned 13-time European champions Real Madrid on Tuesday night with a 2-1 victory in one of the biggest upsets in Champions League history. Sheriff had beaten Shakhtar Donetsk in its Champions League group stage debut two weeks ago. But how did Sheriff, a largely unknown club based in Transnistria’s de facto capital of Tiraspol, surge to such success? A lot has to do with its controversial owners’ deep pockets. INDEPENDENCE Moldova, a country of 3.5 million, Europe’s poorest, sandwiched between Romania and Ukraine, proclaimed its independence from the Soviet Union on August 27, 1991. In the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union and...

    You played yourself: Our 25 favorite celebrity cameos 10 Careers That Are Booming During the Pandemic Man United fans' frustration with the Glazers' ownership is nothing new, and while Super League backlash has taken things to another level, the root causes go well beyond that. View the original article to see embedded media.The images were striking. Fans, many masked, facing off against police at Old Trafford and some managing to break through onto the pitch. There was red, green and yellow smoke, adding an apocalyptic air. A flare was fired toward Sky pundit and former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher, and one policeman was left bleeding from his cheek. But while there was clearly some real unpleasantness, the protest of Manchester United fans against the Glazer family ownership, which resulted in the postponement of Sunday's match vs. Liverpool, was generally peaceful. For the most part, the demonstrators who got onto the pitch seemed vaguely befuddled, wandering around not really knowing what to do next. But the really significant part of the protest perhaps came three miles to the northeast, at the...
    Observations from Tuesday’s Yankees workout: Funky Cold Medina Aaron Boone made a point of watching right-hander Luis Medina’s bullpen session at the minor league complex after the 21-year-old opened eyes with a strong showing in winter ball in Puerto Rico. “I wouldn’t put anything past him because the talent is special,’’ Boone said. “He’s somebody we’re very excited about. … You never know what can happen this year. We feel he has a bright future, a major league future.” Late Arrival Estevan Florial was the lone player not to make it to camp on time, according to Boone, because the outfielder had visa issues. Caught My Eye Normally, there would have been plenty of fans in the stands for the first workout at George M. Steinbrenner Field. Fans will be allowed at games this spring, but so far, it’s been very quiet. Luis MedinaN.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg Wednesday’s Schedule Full-squad workouts continue, with position players at Steinbrenner Field and pitchers and catchers at the minor league complex.
    The deadline for an MLB team to sign Tomoyuki Sugano is officially 5 p.m. Thursday, when his one-month posting period expires. But in reality, a deal for the Japanese ace has to be in place probably no later than Tuesday, maybe before, because there are enough elements that must be finalized well before Thursday to make sure they are completed prior to the deadline. One possibility that has emerged, however, is that the deadline can come and go and Sugano can just return to being the ace of the Yomiuri Giants. The Post confirmed an initial report from The Athletic that the righty has a four-year offer from the Giants that contains three opt-outs. Those opt-outs would allow Sugano to pursue his dream of playing in MLB after any season of his contract, perhaps at a point when MLB teams are more comfortable spending than they have shown themselves to be this offseason. Nevertheless, all indicators are that Sugano will sign a major league deal because 1) he has come to the States to do any kind of in-person...

    PFL’s innovative approach to appeal to the digital audience has been successful. MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world with over 450 million fans. These fans are young, engaged, and craving content. PFL’s digital audience grew 20% Year-over-Year, and 70% are 18-34 years-of-age. The league also experienced a 68% Year-over-Year growth on Instagram. The pillars of PFL’s digital strategy are data, personalization, and Premium Content. For example, the league’s award-winning Instagram campaign brought to life the biggest knockouts of the PFL season. It was done in a manner that resonated with fight fans who weren’t accustomed to such content. The campaign featured digital animation artists RayRod and KutKraft. PFL was able to present something fight fans love (knockouts!) in an innovative way with content built by people within the community. The promotion also leverages proprietary SmartCage technology to capture real-time fighter analytics (e.g., punch speed, kick speed, etc.). This data is incorporated into every broadcast. It is also brought to life on social with the fastest strike of the night-type content. PFL is also the first in...
