    David Quinn went to Montreal this summer to meet with Marc-Edouard Vlasic, part of the first-year Sharks coach’s mini-tour of Eastern Canada to personally introduce himself to some of the team’s veteran players. Quinn’s message for Vlasic was clear: The Sharks still need you. “I said, ‘Listen, you’re part of the solution here,’” Quinn said last week. “I don’t know what’s gone on before I got here, but you’re a guy we’re going to lean on. You’re going to play against up lines, you’re going to kill penalties.” While Quinn is still waiting for some of his top players to make an impact in what’s been an 0-4-0 start, Vlasic, 35, has provided what Quinn has needed — a steadying presence on a defense corps that underwent some major changes since last season. Vlasic, in a second-pairing role, has been on the ice for only one of the 11 even-strength goals the Sharks have allowed so far this season. A year after he was seventh among all Sharks defensemen in shorthanded time on ice, Vlasic, after four games, is now...

    Maybe Monday night, and Monday Night Football, the Giants with that kind of stage at home against the Cowboys, the Giants trying to get to 3-0, maybe this will be the night when Daniel Jones looks like a quarterback who can take the Giants back to the Super Bowl someday, and not like a younger version of Ryan Tannehill. Maybe this can be a night when Jones looks like what the Giants drafted him to be, which means to be one of the better young quarterbacks in the league. He has not been that yet. You know all the reasons — and excuses — given as to why it hasn’t happened yet. He’s had multiple coaches and multiple coordinators and he doesn’t have enough weapons. Got it. And, of course, there is some truth to that. It doesn’t change the fact Jones has so rarely made you think you were looking at a future star. Put it this way, and even knowing what a small sample we’re dealing with here now that Jones is being coached up by Brian Daboll:...

    A man in California says he has been infected with COVID and monkeypox at the same time in the first known case in America. Mitcho Thompson, a cannabis salesman in Sebastopol, tested positive for the pandemic virus in late June after feeling 'wiped out'. Days later, red lesions erupted across his back, legs, arms and neck, which he said doctors diagnosed as monkeypox. Thompson was bedridden for weeks as trouble breathing and chills left him barely able to get up for water. Dr. Dean Winslow, an infectious diseases expert at Stanford University, said it was possible for someone to be infected by both viruses at once. He said Thompson had had 'incredibly bad luck'. It comes as America's monkeypox tally surges to 2,593 cases — the second highest tally in the world, right behind Spain, which has 3,125 cases.

    TNT sports analyst Charles Barkley seems to be keeping all his options open when it comes to the future of his career. Speaking with the guys of The Next Round show, Barkley was asked about a rumor that the LIV golf tour had reached out to potentially poach him for their broadcasts. “You’ve always been super honest with us,” co-host Ryan Brown said. “I’m about to put you on the spot here because you love golf. You know, I love golf and there is this rumor I’ve heard from a couple people in the golf world that the LIV tour is coming after you as like a face of their media, like an analyst or something like that.

    "Some people literally have NO idea what is it like to live in a dictatorship," Freedom continued. "Keep taking your freedom for granted." Freedom was hit with backlash for his pro-U.S. tweet he sent to James, and followed up with a clarification. "Sad to see so many people bashing U.S. when they have no idea what’s happening on the other side of the world. I’m not saying the U.S is perfect but if you ever visit China, Turkey, Iran, Russia, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Qatar, Myanmar, Rwanda ... Then you will appreciate what you have here," Freedom said on Twitter. This isn't the first time that Freedom and James have butted heads. In October 2021, Freedom challenged LeBron and Nike to confront the Chinese Communist Party for its enslavement of Uyghur Muslims.

    Joe Rogan doesn’t want former President Donald Trump as a guest on his podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” saying “I don’t want to help him.” In a recent interview on “The Lex Fridman Podcast,” Rogan revealed that he has had the opportunity to interview Trump a number of times but has always turned down the chance. Joe Rogan conceded that Trump has a good chance of winning back the presidency in 2024 because President Joe Biden is essentially senile. “Well, he’s running against a dead man,” Rogan said when asked about Trump’s chances. “Biden shakes hands with people that aren’t even there when he gets off stage. I think he’s seeing ghosts.” He said Biden’s recent appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live was an embarrassment. “He was just rambling,” Rogan said. “If he was anyone else, if he was a Republican – if that was Donald Trump doing that – every fucking talk show would be screaming for him to be off the air.” Joe Rogan then quickly denied that he is backing Trump. “By the way, I’m not a Trump...

Tucker Carlson needs to stop promoting the racist, dangerous \u2018Replacement Theory\u2019. — Chuck Schumer (@Chuck Schumer) 1652810316 What was the reaction? While Schumer's stance may have won him brownie points within his tribe, the decision to reject Carlson's invitation left many others scratching their heads. After all, if Carlson is promoting racism and Schumer is on the "right side" of the issue, why would he refuse the opportunity to enlighten Carlson and his more than 3 million nightly viewers? "Why would you be afraid to debate Carlson if you really believe you have the facts, politics and morality on your side? Oh wait," one person said.

    Elon Musk's $41 billion hostile takeover bid for Twitter appeared to include yet another pot joke from the world's richest man as he offered to buy shares at $54.20.  In his bid to Twitter on Wednesday, Musk told Board Chairman Bret Taylor: 'I am offering to buy 100 percent of Twitter for $54.20 per share in cash, a 54 percent premium over the day before I began investing in Twitter and a 38 percent premium over the day before my investment was publicly announced.'  The figure includes the digits '420,' a reference to marijuana, which Musk, 50, has joked about in the past, much to his detriment as it kicked off a lawsuit from the Security and Exchange Commissions following a 2018 tweet that he was considering taking Tesla private at $420, causing stock prices to soar.  Last week, the Tesla CEO and largest-single shareholder of Twitter, had also posted a photo of himself smoking weed during his interview with Joe Rogan in 2018, with the Tweet saying, 'Twitter's next board meeting is gonna be lit.'   Tesla CEO Elon Musk's...
    The compliments seemingly fell on deaf ears. To Victor Oladipo, Sunday night’s 21 points against the Toronto Raptors were more ordinary than extraordinary. That, to the former All-Star guard, made his performance in the Miami Heat’s victory at Scotiabank Arena a case of simply playing to form. “This is what I’m used to,” he said. “So it’s nothing spectacular or anything like that. It’s just, this is who I am.” While it assuredly was who he used to be during his time with the Indiana Pacers, it was a dramatic breakthrough considering where he had stood in his comeback from May quadriceps surgery, having been shuffled out of the rotation just a week ago. But with Jimmy Butler and Gabe Vincent given Sunday off as the Heat completed the back-to-back set that opened with Saturday night’s victory over the Chicago Bulls at the United Center, the opportunity was there. And was seized. “I found out [Sunday] morning,” Oladipo said of a role that had him on the court for 27:27, his longest stint since making his season debut March 7,...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Celtics fans fell in love with Isaiah Thomas during his brief but impactful time with the team. The diminutive guard gave the franchise a huge jolt of energy when it needed it most, making Boston basketball exciting and fun to watch once again. When Thomas was traded away in the summer of 2017 as part of the Kyrie Irving deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was met with mixed emotions. Boston fans were obviously excited to be bringing in an absurdly talent player in Irving (remember that?), but it was a huge gut-punch that it came at the cost of Thomas, who had just put his career and livelihood on the line for the Celtics when he played through a hip injury during the postseason. He played through broken teeth and the death of his younger sister that postseason, both of which showed just how committed he was to the franchise.

    Justin Fields’ performance in the stretch run of the season will set the tone in terms of what the Chicago Bears roster looks like going forward. Complicating that is the ribs injury he suffered Nov. 21 during the aggravating 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Fields missed the Thanksgiving Day victory in Detroit and Andy Dalton is set to start again Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field. If you are compiling a list of young players not named Fields in position to offer hope for the future, start with outside linebacker Trevis Gipson. The 2020 fifth-round pick hasn’t gotten the attention given to wide receiver Darnell Mooney, tight end Cole Kmet, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, offensive tackles Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins or even running back Khalil Herbert, but Gipson is a player the Bears need to take a large step forward in the final six games. The others, of course, have carved out niches for themselves or are working to do that. Gipson has flashed on occasion, and with 17 games of experience entering...

But he has instead decided to take up an opportunity in the Middle East. O'Neill, however, is not too disheartened, having seen the situation coming. The Norther Irishman said: "Although John triggered the second year of his contract, we always had an agreement in place whereby we would let him leave if a significant overseas opportunity came along. “John is a fantastic professional and was a huge presence for us last season both on and off the field, particularly with the young players in our first-team squad.

    Teamsters vow to unionize Amazon from "coast to coast" Will Fed tapering concerns derail the rising stock market? ‘Investors should look past it,’ says one strategist. © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth is entering his 16th season after deciding to hold off retirement for another year. Los Angeles’ new quarterback isn’t quite as experienced. But Whitworth sees the benefits of having a seasoned QB like Matthew Stafford to lead the offense. “You know what, just being around Stafford, Matthew is one of those guys you can tell, [he’s] just a veteran QB who has played a lot of football and has been a really good football player in this league for a while and is just yearning to have some success,” Whitworth said on Thursday’s episode of the Jim Rome Show. “And you see it in him, how hungry he is, how hard he works, and also just how talented he is. So I think our whole football team is obviously really excited about the...

In a series of Tweets responding to followers on Thursday, the free-agent running back said he will sign with a team this season and suggested the downturn in his career was the fault of former Jets coach Adam Gase’s play-calling. Bell wrote, “I’ll sign somewhere when IM ready…ain’t no more finessing me with lies and s–t just to get me to sign with they team…no more rushed decisions on my end, period…” Bell was on a Hall-of-Fame track through five seasons with the Steelers but sat out all of 2018 due to a contract dispute.

     Stephen A. Smith was not the first person to claim Tim Tebow’s opportunity with the Jacksonville Jaguars is an example of white privilege, but his take caught the ire of Fox Sports host and Outkick founder Clay Travis. “The dumbest take award goes to Stephen A. Smith,” Travis said before reading the ESPN host’s quote from First Take regarding white privilege. “When George Floyd ultimately was murdered by Derek Chauvin the cop, and you saw people rioting and protesting in the streets, it wasn’t just about him. It was about the symbolism of what transpired,” Smith said Thursday morning. “Because Black people have repeatedly felt like we have the proverbial knee on our neck. We constantly have to scratch and claw our way. When we see someone of a different ilk, of a different ethnicity, getting opportunities we know we would never get, that’s where the words ‘white privilege’ comes from,” the First Take host explained. “Does anyone out there think Black people don’t get an opportunity to succeed in the NFL?” Travis asked. “Because that’s what Stephen A....

    Juantarius Bryant did not hear his name called during the three-day NFL Draft earlier this month and was among those free-agent rookies trying to latch onto a team for the summer with hopes of making the starting roster come fall. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM However, the former Austin Peay defensive back revealed Saturday he was the victim of a hoax. He said someone posed as Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees and invited him to rookie minicamp during the week. The offer was too good to be true. "I did not realize it was not a legit opportunity until I traveled to the facility for rookie minicamp check in on Wednesday, May 12. It’s most definitely one of the most embarrassing things that has ever happened to me and a very humbling experience," Bryant said. "Just want to apologize to everyone in the Atlanta Falcons organization for the mix-up. I honestly thought it was a legit opportunity on my end. "I do not know or understand why this happened, but I do know that everything happens...
    Rob Carr/Getty Images When former Austin Peay defensive back Juantarius Bryant received a text from the 404 area code early this month, he believed he was going to get a legitimate chance to pursue his NFL dream. Except the person contacting him was not Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Dean Pees—or anyone else connected with the team. So it was more than a bit awkward when he arrived in Flowery Branch last Wednesday to participate in the team’s rookie minicamp, only to be turned away. “When [the texter] told me they [had] a spot for me at the rookie minicamp, my heart just started racing,” Bryant said in an interview with The All State (Austin Peay’s student newspaper), one that was published on May 7. “It made me start thinking ‘hard work really does pay off.’ I had sacrificed so many things just to get an opportunity that a lot of other people would have folded had they been in my position. “The first thing I did was call my parents and tell my fiancé,” he added, “because they...
                      by Thomas Catenacci  A man who served on the jury that voted to convict former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin defended his participation in a Black Lives Matter protest prior to the trial. Brandon Mitchell said he attended the Aug. 28 “Get Your Knee Off Our Necks!” protest organized by activist Al Sharpton because he had never been to Washington, D.C., according to the Associated Press. Photos recently circulated online show Mitchell wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt at the event. “I’d never been to D.C.,” Mitchell told the AP. “The opportunity to go to D.C., the opportunity to be around thousands and thousands of Black people; I just thought it was a good opportunity to be a part of something.” Mitchell’s shirt said “GET YOUR KNEE OFF OUR NECKS” and “BLM,” which is short for Black Lives Matter, the AP reported. However, he said he doesn’t recall wearing or owning the shirt. Family members of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Eric Garner, who all died after encounters with police officers, spoke...
    MSNBC anchor Joy Reid on Wednesday night criticized Sen. Tim Scott’s (D-SC) rebuttal of President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress. Defending Georgia’s voting law, Scott said, “The state of Georgia passed a law that expands early voting; preserves no-excuse mail-in voting; and, despite what the president claimed, did not reduce Election Day hours. If you actually read this law, it’s mainstream. It will be easier to vote early in Georgia than in Democrat-run New York. But the Left doesn’t want you to know that. They want people to virtue-signal by yelling about a law they haven’t even read.” Reid said, “I was surprised, to be honest with you. This was standard Republican pabulum. This could have been delivered by Tom Cotton or Mike Lee. I’m not sure what his purpose was. His audience to me appeared to be conservative white Republicans who are angry over certain things, of cancel culture and the same sort of cultural nods that we hear on Fox News. And he was out here to throw them a lifeline. It was disappointing....
