    Getty Michael McDowell has some praise for Kyle Weatherman. Daytona 500 winner Michael McDowell just dished out some major praise for a fellow driver. He expressed appreciation for NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Kyle Weatherman‘s “grind.” “@KyleWeatherman makes me smile every week,” McDowell tweeted on August 6 as the Xfinity Series drivers took part in qualifying. “Not just because he is crushing it wheeling the [No. 34] but because I appreciate the grind, I know the grind and I know it pays off too. Keep after it Kyle.” @KyleWeatherman makes me smile every week. Not just because he is crushing it wheeling the #34 but because I appreciate the grind, I know the grind and I know it pays off too.

    Miguel Cabrera hints that the grind may be pushing him to the end of playing days Detroit Tigers designated hitter Miguel Cabrera is one of, if not the, most fearsome right-handed hitters of this generation, that is not up for debate. Sure, Albert Pujols deserves a mention in the conversation but nobody has been a more complete hitter than Miggy in the past 20 years or so. Cabrera, 39, is currently playing in what is his 20th season in the big leagues, a feat that is rarely seen anymore in today’s game. He recently told Evan Petzold of Detroit Free Press that his playing days may be coming to an end soon, as the daily grind is beginning to catch up with him. Miguel Cabrera: “I don’t feel well right now. I’m trying to do whatever I can to go out there and play, but I don’t feel really good right now.” Cabrera will talk with his agent, general manager Al Avila and “everybody” before making a decision about his status for 2023. #Tigers — Evan Petzold (@EvanPetzold) August 4,...
    Getty New York Jets defensive lineman John Franklin-Myers on July 29, 2021. At this point, most New York Jets fans are aware that the run defense was pitiful in 2021 but according to the analytics, one key piece did his job in the trenches. John Franklin-Myers was one of two defensive linemen with a run defense grade of 70.0 or higher on Pro Football Focus last season (75.5). The other — Ronald Blair III — was let go in January. Going one step further, “JFM” trailed only safety Jason Pinnock in this category for the entire franchise and two reasons for that were his low number of missed tackles (3) and his 2.3-yard average depth of tackle (28th in NFL among edge rushers that played 50% of run defense snaps). These numbers weren’t necessarily spectacular but they were solid — compared to the rest of the Jets roster at least — and one area even stood out leaguewide.

    John Means is in the early stages of his recovery from Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery, but the mustache he sported Wednesday in the Orioles’ clubhouse was in vintage form. “Gotta keep it interesting, you know?” Baltimore’s left-handed ace said. “I was losing my mind.” Without baseball as he recovers from his season-ending procedure, Means has turned to facial hair. He’s only three weeks into a recovery and rehabilitation process that will take at least a year, but he said he and doctors are pleased thus far. “Honestly, it’s going better than it’s supposed to be,” Means said. “My range [of motion], they said we’re ahead of schedule, so I don’t know, three weeks, and we got 12 months to go. Little victories here and there.” Means unexpectedly exited his second start after only four innings, with testing eventually revealing the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow was “about 90% torn,” he said. Dr. Keith Meister performed the surgery in Arlington, Texas, on April 27, three day after Means’ 29th birthday. Means spent his offseason training at Meister’s Texas...
    (CNN)"Billions" might have lost its Axe, but it returns with the same cutting dialogue, and in many respects, its original formula.In shedding one of its lead characters, the Showtime drama has essentially hit the reset button, reverting to its outline pitting an aggressive prosecutor against an equally pugnacious billionaire financier. Yet the sixth season also heightens the emphasis on the entire billionaire class, in a more pointed look at income inequality and all that entails.The surprise exit of Damian Lewis as Bobby "Axe" Axelrod blew a hole in the show that's ably filled by Corey Stoll as Mike Prince, the rival who effectively outflanked Axe and took control of his company, sending shock waves through the entire organization.Yet Prince achieved that victory with the help of New York Attorney General Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), only to double-cross him, depriving him of the high-profile conviction that he was eager to secure.Never one to shy away from a fight, Rhoades, naturally, has moved on to combating Prince, while Prince must go through the process of swallowing a company filled with hard-driving overachievers...

    No team has faced an early season gauntlet quite like the one Las Vegas has gone up against and come out unscathed like the Raiders did. The Raiders pulled out another late-game thriller, edging the Miami Dolphins 31-28 in overtime on Sunday to improve to 3-0 for the first time since 2002. The victory over the Dolphins followed an overtime win in the opener against Baltimore and a victory at Pittsburgh as the Raiders were the 38th team to open the season with three straight games against teams coming off seasons with at least 10 wins and the only one to win all of them. Things don’t look to get much easier this week with the Raiders (3-0) traveling to take on the Chargers (2-1) on Monday night after Los Angeles won at Kansas City this past week. “It’s fun to win,” coach Jon Gruden said Monday. “Also you have to be realistic when you look at the schedule. It doesn’t get much easier. … Every week is a grind.” That’s why Gruden knows his team will need...

    Blizzard Another season of Diablo 3 is just over the horizon, and with the news of Season 23 ending in just a week or so, fans are wondering when to expect Season 24. Blizzard revealed that Season 23 will wrap up on July 18, meaning that we’ll going through a period of downtime as we wait for the new content to show up. There was a bit of controversy surrounding this season as there was no set theme like we had in the past. Hopefully, Blizzard will get us back on that track because that’s often the most fun part about the season. Since we know when the season ends, we can do a fair bit of speculation as to when Season 24 will begin.When Does Season 24 Begin? Diablo III's Season 23 ends July 18th.

    Epic Games Any avid Fortnite player knows that the grind never really ends, and that applies to the Battle Pass as well. While you might think the Battle Pass is done once you reach level 100, there’s actually a lot more to unlock after that point is reached. The Season 7 Battle Pass is a bit different as things are unlocked with Battle Stars instead simply leveling up. The stars are earned by leveling, but players can now unlock things in whatever order they want in Season 7. Eventually, they’ll be able to get everything if they play enough, but certain cosmetics can be prioritized. This method continues even after everything is unlocked. In the past, the super styles would be earned by leveling to certain points, but in Season 7, you’ll have to keep earning Battle Stars. Here’s how it works out.How to Get Season 7 Super Styles Epic Games For starters, the super styles are just available for Battle Pass skins. This includes Sunny, Guggimon, Zyg, Doctor Slone and Rick Sanchez. There are three different...
    Boston Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez is hoping to put a poor 2020 season in the rearview with Opening Day right around the corner. Martinez batted .213 with a .680 OPS and only seven home runs in 54 games for Boston last season. On Tuesday, Martinez took issue with the criticism he’s received for the subpar season. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I just want it to be a normal season. I'm kind of tired of being judged on two months," he said during an appearance on WEEI Radio. "I feel like it's everything. It's constantly being asked by the media, 'J.D., you had a terrible 2020 ...' It's nonstop. Dude, let me grind, let me work. Stop putting the negativity around me. I just want to go out there and hit and do what I know what to do, grind, and get back in the swing of things. Just getting back out there, putting numbers up there again and everyone will say, 'Oh, OK. This is what happened.’" MLB FAN'S BEER EXPLODES WHEN SCREAMING LINE DRIVE FLIES...
    By DAVID BRANDT, AP Sports Writer PHOENIX (AP) — The sport of baseball, much like the rest of the world, is craving normalcy after a full year of disruptions caused by the pandemic. So the familiar feel of February spring training has pitchers eager to unleash fastballs, spin a few breaking balls and get ready for the 162-game long haul. But the message from coaches and executives is clear: No need to rush. “Spring training is 50 days long,” Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais said. “To put that in perspective, our season last year was 66 days long. So we have time.” As of Thursday, almost all 30 teams had started workouts for pitchers and catchers. Now organizations are working on how to manage their pitchers' workloads after most threw less than half of their usual innings in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season. Pitch counts or innings limits are hardly new concepts. Organizations do everything in their power to protect their pitchers, especially elite prospects. The bump in workload from 60 games to 162 just provides another variable to consider. Teams...

    Everything about it sounded “crazy.” There was a global pandemic. Most high schools in New York City were shut down, limited to virtual learning. High-risk sports were basically banned. But Our Saviour Lutheran, an independent school in The Bronx that plays a national schedule, was still planning to have a high school basketball season. “Are they crazy?” Lisa Stallings thought when approached about the possibility of her son, Jaquan Sanders, playing. As it turns out, they were not. Our Saviour is unique. It is the only high school basketball team in New York City having a season. The team’s coach, Pete Wehye, was determined. Last spring Dan Hudson, who runs the Grind Session unaffiliated prep league, had discussed the possibility of playing the following season in bubbles if the virus hadn’t gone away. Wehye was on board, especially after COVID-19 eliminated the summer travel AAU circuit for his players. They needed the exposure to college coaches that the Grind Session allows by having all of its games streamed by Tanager Sports. “I tell everybody, I’m not judged by how many...
    Epic Games Another week of Fortnite has arrived and that means there are new XP Coins to track down to help level up our Battle Pass and beyond. Just completing the weekly quests is often enough for players when it comes to huge chunks of XP, but if you really want to maximize your efforts, it’ll be worth tracking down all of the new coins too. These are usually scattered all across the map and players will come across them naturally, but if you want to make it a point of finding them all, then having a map of every coin certainly helps. Here’s where you’ll be able to find every new coin that was introduced in Week 8.Fortnite Week 8 XP Coins Epic Games / Fortnite.gg10 coins are up for grabs yet again.

    The New York Rangers are prepared to “Embrace the Grind” By: Jim Bay January 14, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditOn the night before the start 2020-21 season, New York Rangers President John Davidson, GM Jeff Gorton, and Head Coach David Quinn held a virtual town hall to talk about their expectations for the upcoming season. Among the many topics discussed, much was talked about the many difficulties that the Blueshirts face in this very different kind of season. Unfortunately, one of the biggest tasks that the Rangers and the NHL will face is dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Davidson addressed that by discussing the many protocols and procedures that the NHL is requiring of teams this season. Some of the procedures that the NHL have put in place include: • Home teams must make their home rink or practice rink available to visiting teams. Visiting teams are not permitted to use rinks owned by third parties. Team practices will also not be open to the public. • Players will be prohibited from carpooling...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The highlights that usually accompany another win by the Kansas City Chiefs tend to showcase Patrick Mahomes making a did-you-see-that throw, Travis Kelce turning a broken play into a big gain, or Tyreek Hill wagging his finger at some helpless defensive back as he speeds away. Rarely do they showcase the big guys up front that make everything happen. They probably should after Sunday. With their fifth different starting offensive line facing one of the league’s best defenses, the Chiefs managed to grind their way past the New Orleans Saints in crunch time. They opened enough holes for Clyde Edwards-Helaire — before he left with an ankle injury — and Le’Veon Bell that Mahomes and Co. merely had a supporting role in finishing off a 32-29 victory over the Saints that wrapped up a perfect season for the Chiefs on the road. “We scored points against a good defensive front,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “You are talking about one of the best defensive fronts if not the best, statistically. We ran the ball efficiently,...

    By PAT GRAHAM, AP Sports Writer Late Sunday afternoon, the Guaranteed Rate Bowl became one of the latest to be called off because of the pandemic, proving once and for all there really are no guarantees in this college football season. What is usually a joyous day for more than 60 teams around the country was far more surreal as organizers set the annual bowl schedule two weeks later than usual. Far below the headlines of Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Clemson, the scramble was weird — and painful. Especially for an Army team that went 9-2 and accepted an invitation to the Independence Bowl only to have the game called off because there was not an available Pac-12 team to play. With bowl contracts still in force, it all meant that a South Carolina team with a woeful 2-8 record is going to the Gasparilla Bowl while the Black Knights miss out. Minnesota was among a handful of teams joining the list of more than 20 Power Five conference teams that elected it will not accept an invitation...
    Pregnant Meghan Trainor Reveals Why Shes Scared to Give Birth: I Need My Mama Tesla Gets Second Court Order to Halt Work on German Factory Boston College opts out of bowl game, citing ‘emotional, mental and physical grind’ of 2020 Boston College has decided to opt out of a bowl game in 2020, with the team and administrators choosing to return home for the holidays instead. Boston College athletic director Dr. Patrick Kraft informed Yahoo Sports of the decision on Thursday, which marks the first bowl-eligible program to publicly announce they do not want to play in a bowl game. BC finished 6-5 in head coach Jeff Hafley’s first season and were likely to play in either the Gasparilla Bowl or the Military Bowl, according to bowl projections. But after consulting with the team’s leadership council, BC officials decided to pass in part because of the “emotional, mental and physical grind” of playing the 2020 football season in a pandemic. “It’s a road game, basically,” Kraft told Yahoo Sports of a bowl game. “The players would have to be...

    Getty Jordan Poyer makes a tackle Four years ago the Buffalo Bills signed a young and emerging safety to pair alongside free safety Micah Hyde. In his first four seasons in the NFL, Bills safety Jordan Poyer hadn’t made much noise. He had only started 10 games, including the first six of the 2015 season. But, in the sixth game of the season, Poyer suffered a nasty lacerated kidney injury that knocked him out for the rest of the season. To that point, he had never recorded more than 50 tackles in a season and he was entering his first offseason as a free agent. Almost immediately, the Bills picked up him.

    CEDAR HILL (CBSDFW.COM) – While the start of the football season in Texas has been delayed for Class 6A schools, the Cedar Hill Longhorns are doing their best to make every day count. Since the team isn’t allowed to throw the football around in practices yet, the Longhorns are throwing some weights around in strength and conditioning drills. “Our weight room is affectionately known as ‘Grind City!’” head coach Carlos Lynn said. (credit: CBSDFW.COM) One player who is easy to spot working out in Grind City is 6’6” Josh McCarter. The teenager gets plenty of attention because of his size. “Of course, people always ask how tall I am,” McCarter admitted. “A lot of people’s first question is if I play basketball or not.” What McCarter does play is tight end. Entering his Junior year at Cedar Hill, McCarter does not have a lot of experience, but he hopes to make up for that quickly in his first year on the Longhorns varsity team.
