    The NFL stopped Monday night, turning away from the relentless business of preparing for games to pray and hope for the recovery of Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin. Few players and coaches, including those on the Ravens, had witnessed a football moment so chilling. Hamlin rose from a collision with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins and, after taking a few steps, collapsed to the field, his heart no longer functioning. He had to be revived as teammates and opponents watched in bewildered horror. “The first thing that goes through your mind is you’ve never seen anybody fall down like that before,” said Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell, who thought he’d glimpsed every eventuality over 15 years in the league. “It was weird because it looked like such an ordinary play,” Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey said. “And then, obviously the more you talked about it, it kind of hit home that, you say all the time you put your life on the line playing this game, but it’s crazy for that to really end up like that.” “Stuff that’s unimaginable,”...
    In the backyard of a newly built townhouse in East Garfield Park on Sept. 13, a group of junior high and high school kids from Marillac St. Vincent Family Services peppered Eddie Jackson with questions. The Chicago Bears safety handled it with the swagger of someone returning a pick-six. Jackson got into the real topics at the event promoting the construction of the Harrison Row Townhomes, an affordable single-family housing complex sold through the Chicago Housing Trust. Why financial literacy is important for the kids. Why dreams beyond becoming football players or entertainers should be celebrated. Why he’s making investments for his future beyond the NFL. But there was a lot of bold football talk too. Can you train me? “Yeah, I got you. I got you,” Jackson answered. “I’ve got to check what your schedule looks like though.” What’s your Madden score? “What you think it should be, 99? That’s what I’m saying. Yeah, 99.” Do you think you’d be better if you stayed at wide receiver? “I won’t say I’d be better, but I’d be one of the...
    An LSU football fan casually wandered 10 yards onto the playing field while the Tigers took on the Southern Jaguars and it confused everyone. For reasons unknown to anyone at this point, an LSU fan wandered onto the field during LSU’s game against Southern and just stood there with his hands on his hips until security came to get him. It was a bizarre sequence that has to be seen to be believed. So here, have a look:LSU fan took a stroll on the field in the middle of a playMan this had me rolling ???? dude just took a brisk walk to the 10 in the middle of the game pic.twitter.com/utcV0Ec0a7 — Seth Lewis (@SethLewisInc) September 11, 2022 College football has seen many a field rusher. But have you ever seen someone amble onto the field like that, without a care in the world? He looked like he was just getting a closer look at the action. Security looked just as confused. They’re used to having to chase dudes around the field. Having a guy just walk out...
    Joe Starkey, the longtime Cal radio broadcaster best known for letting the world know that “The band is out on the field” from the 1982 Stanford-Cal game, announced on Thursday that 2022 will be his final year. It will conclude a nearly five-decade long run as the Voice of Golden Bears football for one of the Bay Area’s legendary sports broadcasters, who also was the radio voice of the San Francisco 49ers 20 seasons and a long run as sports director at KGO-AM. Starkey was also the first broadcaster for the Bay Area’s two hockey teams, the Oakland/California Golden Seals and the San Jose Sharks. But it’s his call for “The Play” that has stood the test of time and is still remembered 40 years later. After declaring that Stanford’s band is on the field before Cal’s Kevin Moen ran a member of the Stanford band over while scoring the game-winning touchdown, a breathless Starkey said the play was, “the most amazing, sensational, dramatic, heartrending, exciting, thrilling finish in the history of college football.” This year’s Big Game is scheduled...
    Tiger Woods's face was creased in such pain on Saturday night it was hardly surprising that much of the social media chatter centred on whether he should withdraw before the final round of the 86th Masters. It was all well-meaning, naturally, but has that ever been the Tiger way? Of course he showed up for the final round. It was as much a given as the fact he would walk to the first tee dressed in red. A year after being immobile in a hospital bed, with his prospects of walking again rated slim, much less playing golf here he was, making it up the 18th hole on Sunday at Augusta National.

    Robbie Gould lived up to his name. On a field littered with snow flurries, Gould made a 45-yard field goal Saturday night as time expired and the San Francisco 49ers knocked off the top-seeded Packers 13-10 and possibly ended Aaron Rodgers’ tenure in Green Bay. Gould has made all 20 of his career playoff field-goal attempts. His latest helped the 49ers complete an improbable comeback by scoring 10 unanswered points in the last five minutes. “I always trust Robbie. He’s as good as gold, man,” Niners quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said. “He always is.” The 49ers (12-7) continued their postseason hex on Rodgers and advanced to an NFC championship game matchup Jan. 30 at either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (14-4) or Los Angeles Rams (13-5). Those teams play Sunday in Tampa. This marks the 17th conference championship appearance for the 49ers, the most by any team since conferences were formed in the 1970 merger. The 49ers had been tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers. San Francisco’s win, coupled with the Cincinnati Bengals’ 19-16 victory over the...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The NFL’s “Super” Wild Card weekend was … largely a dud. Four of the six games were absolute blowouts, and both of the close contests were marred to varying degrees by the involvement of referees and on-field officials. While the Cowboys were mostly at fault for the frantic ending in Dallas, we unfortunately can’t let referee Jerome Boger and the rest of his assembled crew off the hook for the disaster that was Saturday afternoon’s Raiders-Bengals game. That game was largely ruined by the officials. They all missed a Raiders player calling timeout, leading to a long completion by Cincinnati and a roughing the passer penalty on Las Vegas being negated. After a long meeting, the officials decided to retroactively grant that timeout to Las Vegas, even though a penalty for too many men probably should have been called instead. Unreal “my bad” face. pic.twitter.com/zGpU9RZqwo — Michael Hurley (@michaelFhurley) January 15, 2022 Alas, this wasn’t the crew’s biggest blunder, obviously. A highly controversial play before halftime saw Joe Burrow made a dazzling play for...
    Sports have a knack for reflecting society. Just look in the mirrored goggles of swimmer Reece Whitley, and you’ll see it splashing back to life. Our attachment to games is driven by backstory and buzz. In 2020, the narratives were interrupted and the stands left eerily empty. Over the course of 2021, the drama returned. The backstory: a years-long rivalry between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, its third edition billed as a “Once and For All” heavyweight bought. The buzz: a Las Vegas arena exploding with barbaric cheers when Fury lands a powerful left en route to an 11th-round knockout. The backstory: seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton scraping Sunday after Sunday to hold off upstart challenger Max Verstappen. The buzz: shouts of shock and alarm when they collide at the Italian Grand Prix, Verstappen’s Red Bull car flipping into the air and landing atop Hamilton’s Mercedes. The backstory: Simone Biles, vaulting into Tokyo with her sights on Olympic history. The buzz: stunned silence when the GOAT withdrew during the team final, then a global roar of sympathy and support...
    The Atlético de Madrid he replaced the departure of the goalkeeper Ivo Grbic, loaned to Lille, with the incorporation of Benjamin Lecomte, also on loan for a season from Monaco. In the case of the Croatian goalkeeper, it was a matter of solving a personal request from the young player because he understood that he needed to have minutes. And in the shadow of Oblak it was impossible to have them. The meta has already trained with his new team, the THE C (Lille) and also left his first words as a goalkeeper for the ‘Dogos’. He explained that the words of a good friend were especially important in his decision. “I know many things about him THE C. I have talked a lot with Bradaric. We play together in the Hadjuk split. We often talk about Lille and from THE C when we meet in the Croatian national team. He told me about the club, the stadium and the fans. I know of course that the THE C he is champion of France and I am really very happy...
    SALFORD insist they will be able to play this weekend, despite being down to training with just SIX players. The Red Devils have been smashed by Covid-19 with five positive cases in the camp plus a further 10 or 11 self-isolations as close contacts. 2 Salford have been left training with just six players - but boss Richard Marshall insists they will field a team at CastlefordCredit: SWPIX.COM Throw in serious injuries to the likes of Kevin Brown and Kallum Watkins and Sunday’s match against Castleford looks a million miles away. But boss Richard Marshall is adamant they will field a team, saying: “Things aren’t too good, there are a couple of ill boys. “We had six players on the field training. It’s tough, it really is.

This new variant is very, very contagious “We’re hopeful the guys coming out of isolation will be...

    The Post’s Steve Serby chatted with Washington rookie standout Chase Young, the No. 2 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, who will have his sights squarely on the Giants’ Daniel Jones this Sunday. Q: You can pick the brain of any pass rusher in NFL history. A: LT. Lawrence Taylor. LT is one of the all-time greats. One of the best pass rushers to ever play the game. I loved the fact that he was a dog throughout the entire game. I would just love to pick his brain on his pass rush moves and just his overall passion for the game and what motivated him. He played with an intensity like no other. Q: Describe your on-field mentality. A: I’m ready to go. When I step on the field, I just feel like I turn into something else. Q: You’ve likened yourself to a lion on the field? A: Yes. Q: Could you elaborate on that? A: You know, the King of the Jungle, and everybody respects a lion. You can’t really go toe-to-toe with them. The baddest in...
    Longtime Twins television broadcaster Dick Bremer will settle into his familiar seat at Target Field on Friday night with color commentator Justin Morneau by his side. One booth over, radio broadcasters Cory Provus and Dan Gladden will occupy the visiting TV area. The four will sit at an empty Target Field and call the first game of the Twins’ shortened season — a game taking place more than 400 miles away in Chicago. Bremer, entering his 37th season calling Twins games, can’t even remember the last time he didn’t attend the team’s Opening Day game. “I’ve only done it one way, actually seeing the game I’m asked to call,” Bremer said. “It’s not normal and it’s not ideal, but what about calendar year 2020 is normal or ideal? It’s just the way it is. I’m delighted that the games are going to be on, and I know how hungry fans are to be able to watch the games.” While players and coaches have to adapt to a host of new health and safety protocols, announcers, too, have to adapt to...
