    Will Ferrell hilariously trash talked Arsenal's Aaron Ramsdale ahead of the England-US rivalry at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on Friday, after the goalkeeper dared to change the title of the actor's famous 'Anchorman' movies to 'W*****man.' In an unlikely showdown on London-based radio Capital FM, host Roman Kemp played out a voice recording from Ramsdale where he told Ferrell that whilst he 'loves watching his films', 'when that whistle goes, you'll be the worst actor in the world' and joked 'Elf will be on the shelf, and it will be a little less Anchorman and more w*****man' - leaving Ferrell no other choice but to engage in a battle of words.  'Wow. Mr. Aaron Ramsdale. Aaron you didn’t realize when you gave those quotes, Aaron you didn’t realize, I know where you live,' the ex-SNL actor said. 'And I’m delivering a bag of s*** to your doorstep.

    When it comes to the Olympics there aren't many greater shoo-ins for a gold medal, let alone a medal, than Team USA at basketball. Both the men and women dominate their respective fields historically. Focusing on the former, this is perfectly illustrated by the fact they have won 15 of 18 tournaments in which they have participated in - including seven-straight between 1936 and 1968. Bringing it up to date, the men's US team have triumphed at the last three Games (Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016) - winning the final by an emphatic 30 points over Serbia in Brazil almost five years ago.

    Analyst Marcellus Wiley sheds light why Russell Wilson is very much out of the MVP contenders. According to him, Wilson had a splendid start, but over time his performance has deteriorated drastically. There are way more deserving contenders, like Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes and Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers. Their form has been amazing from the beginning of the season, with no downfalls. Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes presently are considerably ahead of Wilson in the MVP race. .@MarcellusWiley: Russell Wilson might not even get one MVP vote… “We all know Patrick Mahomes is in the driver’s seat. Right there shotgun is Aaron Rodgers.

    The Toronto Raptors’ time in the Orlando Bubble was short-lived. The high-flying Boston Celtics forced the defending champions out in the conference semis. However, as fate would have it, they may again experience a bubble-like feeling in the upcoming season. The Canadian government has got some really strict COVID-19 regulations placed around foreigners traveling to their land. Now, the league has scheduled a tight 72-game NBA card, set to begin on December 22. Neither the players nor the league would want the teams to serve a quarantine period every time they play the Raptors in their home court. The Toronto Raptors not very keen to play in Newark They have several options to consider if they move out of Toronto. Those are Newark’s Prudential Center, Barclays Center (sharing with the Nets), Kansas City, or the Tampa Bay area. However, in the more quintessential approach, the Masai Ujiri led franchise would want to stay put at the Scotiabank Arena.  As per reports, the league is expecting to allow 25% of the arenas’ suites to host fans. They are also in...
