    Asked for his Super Bowl prediction, President Biden said he loves Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback Joe Burrow, but added the Los Angeles Rams will be “hard to beat.”  At the end of a sitdown interview with the president, “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt said “You can’t wrap up an interview like this without asking: Cincinnati or Los Angeles?”  “Well, my teams are out. And I love this young quarterback from Cincinnati. He’s an Ohio boy, can make everybody happy, but we also have some, you know, I think Los Angeles is gonna be hard to beat,” Biden responded.  Burrow, along with former Louisiana State University teammate wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, has led the Bengals to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1988.  However, the Rams, with high-priced stars on both offense and defense, are favored to win the game.  Super Bowl LVI is set to kick off around 6:30 EST, with the halftime show to feature Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige.  The American Gaming Association this week predicted that nearly 31.5 million Americans would place bets on the Super Bowl worth around $7.6...
    Joe Judge said Wednesday that he wants impending free agent safety Jabrill Peppers to remain a Giant and that he’s told Peppers that himself. “This guy is in a contract year,” Judge said. “It’s something I’ve talked to him about directly. He’s a guy that I value a lot in this program. I’d love to have this guy going forward. I’ve told him that directly. He’s been a very good leader for us.” Peppers, 26, told the Daily News on Oct. 15 that he didn’t want to leave, either, nine days before he ruptured his right ACL against the Panthers. “I’m here to stay. I wanna win,” Peppers said then, with the trade deadline looming. “So that’s where my mind is.” Peppers, who is now out for the season, could choose to sign somewhere he will play more in the spring. The Giants reduced the safety’s playing time on defense significantly this season, from 98% of their 2020 snaps when healthy to 56% this fall. But Judge said he views Peppers, a defensive captain...
    Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that Shohei Ohtani's comments last weekend about wanting to win don't mean the two-way star wants to leave the organization when he becomes a free agent after the 2023 season. Ohtani, an AL MVP front-runner with 45 home runs and a 3.18 ERA, said Sunday that although he likes the team, the fans and the atmosphere, his top priority is winning.

"If anybody misconstrues that as though he wants to leave, that’s trying to connect some dots that weren’t necessarily what he, not at all what he said. "He also mentioned how much he loves it here. The inner sanctum of the clubhouse, the guys, the coaching staff, everything about it. The area. The fans. He loves them all. We all want to get to the next level, and we see it as an absolute possibility it’s going to happen here in...
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Los Angeles Angels manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that Shohei Ohtani’s comments last weekend about wanting to win don’t mean the two-way star wants to leave the organization when he becomes a free agent after the 2023 season.

    IAN POULTER says there is a simple reason why he has become a Ryder Cup legend - he loves beating Americans! Poulter will make his seventh appearance for Europe at Whistling Straits, looking for his sixth victory. 3Ian Poulter is hoping for another win as the Ryder Cup legend gears up for actionCredit: Reuters 3Team Europe won over American fans by wearing cheeseheads in WisconsinCredit: Reuters The 45 year old Englishman says winning never gets old. And neither does getting under his opponent’s skin. He grinned: “I'm sure I've annoyed plenty of my opponents. I mean, my winning percentage has been really nice, for me, and not for the guys I've played against. “So I'm sure that's been pretty frustrating to be on the receiving end of that. But as far as I’m concerned, it feels nice. “I enjoy holing putts and winning matches. It's been a great ride. I'm never going to apologise for it. It's how match play should be played.” As well as inspiring the 2012 Miracle at Medinah with his sensational five birdies in a row...
    USA Basketball didn’t blow up Kevin Durant’s phone with repeated calls to beg and plead for him to play in the Tokyo Olympics. It was a much more dignified process: They asked, then they waited. It was the right move. "They helped me make the decision by letting me be me," Durant said. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Already an owner of two Olympic gold medals, Durant ultimately chose to try for three. The Brooklyn Nets forward will lead the U.S. Olympic team into Tokyo this month and could become just the second men’s player in USA Basketball history to win three golds, joining Carmelo Anthony. And not that this matters to Durant, because it doesn’t, but he could simply rewrite the USA Basketball Olympic record book in the next few weeks as well. "I committed to USA Basketball when I was coming out of college, and every chance that I get that I’m healthy and my mind’s in the right place to play basketball, I go out there and play," Durant said. "I finished the year...
    Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson. Cliff Hawkins/Getty Images Phil Mickelson is a deft trash-talker on the golf course. Mickelson used to joke with Dustin Johnson about missing the champions' dinner at the Masters. When Johnson finally won the green jacket in November, he turned the tables on Mickelson. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Phil Mickelson knows his way around Augusta National. As a three-time Masters champion, Mickelson has navigated the tricky course as well as anyone not named Tiger, and thanks to his green jacket wins, he is a member of one of the most exclusive clubs in all of golf. A savvy trash-talker, it's no surprise that Mickelson would use this status to his advantage a bit, poking fun at his fellow pros on the course. According to Golf Digest, Mickelson regularly needled World No. 1 Dustin Johnson about his lack of a Masters victory. On the Tuesday before the Masters begins, the tournament's former winners gather together for a traditional dinner hosted by the reigning champion. Leading up to the event, Mickelson would joke...

    For a man obsessed with winning, President Donald Trump is losing a lot. He’s managed to lose not just once to Democrat Joe Biden at the ballot box but over and over again in courts across the country in a futile attempt to stay in power. The Republican president and his allies continue to mount new cases, recycling the same baseless claims, even after Trump’s own attorney general declared the Justice Department had uncovered no widespread fraud. “This will continue to be a losing strategy, and in a way it’s even bad for him: He gets to re-lose the election numerous times,” said Kent Greenfield, a professor at Boston College Law School. “The depths of his petulance and narcissism continues to surprise me.” In an Associated Press tally of roughly 50 cases brought by Trump’s campaign and his allies, more than 30 have been rejected or dropped. About a dozen are awaiting action. Trump has notched just one small victory, a case challenging a decision to move the deadline to provide missing proof of identification for certain absentee ballots and...
    By ALANNA DURKIN RICHER, Associated Press For a man obsessed with winning, President Donald Trump is losing a lot. He’s managed to lose not just once to Democrat Joe Biden at the ballot box, but over and over again in courts across the country in a futile attempt to stay in power. The president and his allies continue to mount new cases, recycling the same baseless claims, even after Trump’s own attorney general declared the Justice Department had uncovered no widespread fraud. "This will continue to be a losing strategy, and in a way it's even bad for him: He gets to re-lose the election numerous times," said Kent Greenfield, a professor at Boston College Law School. “The depths of his petulance and narcissism continues to surprise me.” In an Associated Press tally of roughly 50 cases brought by Trump's campaign and his allies, more than 30 have been rejected or dropped.

    Karl DeBlaker/AP For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.According to an Axios report, Donald Trump is planning on declaring a premature victory if it appears that he is ahead before all the ballots are counted. Because coronavirus concerns curtailed in-person voting, many states, including pivotal ones like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, are dealing with a deluge of mail-in ballots, presumably from mostly Democratic voters. Trump has urged his supporters to vote in person to avoid non-existent mail-in voting fraud. But his campaign strategy seems to be that with many in-person votes cast for him, he will use the opportunity to claim victory early by lying that the remaining ballots are fraudulent. But, should Trump jump the gun and announce that he has been reelected for a second term before the final results are tallied it wouldn’t be the first time he falsely declared himself a winner—even though he wasn’t.  Immediately after the 2016 election, before he was officially president, Trump claimed a victory that was not his. Perhaps, the only thing more stunning...
    It takes a special breed to weather the elements, especially the wind, and thrive when you play quarterback in Buffalo, so the wait for The Next Jim Kelly had spanned two decades and 19 candidates by the time Josh Allen arrived. So the great Jim Kelly, Mr.Buffalo’s courageous and inspirational Hall of Fame quarterback, was asked if he is optimistic that his Bills have found the worthy successor to the throne at last. “I’m very confident in that,” Kelly told Serby Says. “I won’t say 100 percent. But what I see so far, barring injury, I love it. I love his enthusiasm, I like the system that they’re running, I like everything about what’s going on — except for the pandemic that’s going on, because I can’t go watch it.” Wyoming head coach Craig Bohl was asked if the Bills have found The Next Jim Kelly in his former quarterback. “Yes,” Bohl said by phone. “There’s greatness with him. There is no stage that is too big for Josh Allen.” During the pre-draft process, the Giants and Jets inquired as...
    Getty Larry Fowl, Celtics legend At a time when the NBA appears to be on the vanguard of so lots of the nation’s essential points—COVID-19, problems with social justice, nationwide anthem protests—maybe it’s a good time to be reminded that generally we will simply take enjoyment within the offbeat issues. Like, for instance, a vegetable that appears nearly precisely like a Celtics Corridor of Fame all-time nice. On this case, it’s a tomato (and sure, technically, that makes it a fruit). Not simply any tomato, although. This one appears eerily like Larry Fowl, arguably the perfect participant in Celtics historical past. It began with a tweet from a gardener in England, who posted a photograph final week of a tomato with the road, “The tomato of confusion has arrived.” That was on Friday. The tomato of confusion has arrived.#lockdownextension pic.twitter.com/dPb93JOe34 — Paul (@bingowings14) July 31, 2020 On Sunday morning, Whitney Medworth, an editor at SB Nation, helped the tomato acquire its true identification. “That’s Larry Fowl,” she tweeted. That remark was retweeted...
