    AL NASSR'S first match since unveiling Cristiano Ronaldo has been CALLED OFF due to rain. The Portuguese superstar, 37, took part in a training session on Tuesday as he prepared to begin his new venture in Saudi Arabia. 1Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in Saudi Arabia earlier this weekCredit: EPA He was not set to feature in their clash with Al Ta'ee on Thursday due to a ban placed upon him by the FA. But, had he played anyway as the club wanted him to, the Al Nassr supporters still would not have seen him due to the match - which was due to take place at 3pm BST - being postponed. It is now expected to take place on Friday. A statement released by the club just hours before the game cited the weather as having caused electrical issues. It read: "Due to heavy rain and weather conditions impacting the stadium’s electricity, we have been officially informed that tonight’s match against Al Ta'i is postponed for 24 hours. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused to fans and wish everyone safe travels."...
    After Dansby Swanson was introduced Wednesday as the newest Chicago Cubs savior, I asked his wife, Chicago Red Stars forward Mallory Pugh, if she gave him a scouting report on the city. “Great food, great in the summer,” she said. True enough, and there was no need to discuss the upcoming blizzard-vortex combo package that follows their trip to Chicago. The city’s biggest sports power couple since Nomar Garciaparra and Mia Hamm won’t have to winter here. As Swanson revealed Wednesday in the Cubs office building next to Wrigley Field, it didn’t take much convincing for him to sign a seven-year, $177 million deal. Between his wife playing in Chicago and his late grandfather, Herb Swanson, having made him watch Cubs games on WGN as a kid in Atlanta, Dansby believed this was “a match made in heaven.” “Watching as many games as he did (that were) on in the day, he just grew into that kind of (fandom of) ‘Everyone likes the Cubbies, right?’” Swanson said. “He grew into that love of appreciating the Cubs and watching the Cubs...

    Former President Donald Trump took to Truth Social with an advertisement targeting Hillary Clinton after her campaign manager testified she personally signed off on sharing since-debunked Trump-Russia allegations. Trump’s ad opened with an exchange between him and Clinton during the 2016 presidential debate when Clinton said, “It is awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.” Trump then responded, “Because you’d be in jail.” BARRED IN SAN FRANCISICO, NANCY PELOSI FINDS OPEN DOOR, RECEIVES COMMUNION IN DC The ad then highlighted a juxtaposition of media clips reacting to the news that campaign manager Robby Mook testified that Clinton “agreed with the decision” to share information about claims of a secret back channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa-Bank, which have been debunked. “They tried to steal the 2016 election by spreading the Russia hoax,” the ad said. “Trump was right. Hillary fabricated the Russia hoax.” The ad included chants of “lock her up,” and Trump ended by saying, “The collusion delusion...
    YARMOUTH (CBS) – Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker will mark the fourth anniversary of the death of Yarmouth Police Sgt. Sean Gannon with a ceremonial bill signing Tuesday. Gannon was shot and killed while he and other officers were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Marstons Mills on April 12, 2018. Gannon’s K-9 partner Nero was also shot, but survived. Baker will lead a ceremonial signing of Nero’s Law at the Yarmouth Police Department at noon. When Nero was shot, EMTs weren’t allowed to treat or transport him under state law, so he was rushed to the animal hospital in the back of a police cruiser. The new law, officially signed by Baker back in February, will allow EMTs to treat wounded police dogs and take them to veterinarians, as long as no other people need to go to the hospital.

    RALF RANGNICK warned Manchester United the transfer cock-ups have to stop if they want to bring back the glory days. The Red Devils have blown more than £1 BILLION in the nine years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired — yet will surely finish below Sunday afternoon’s rivals Manchester City for the ninth season in a row. 4Ralf Rangnick has warned United against further mistakesCredit: Getty And interim manager Rangnick said: “It’s about having a clear transfer strategy, signing players who fit into that system — and that’s what both clubs have been doing in the last five or six years. “If I look at their [City’s] transfer policy and their transfer success, they haven’t had many players who after one or two years people would have said maybe that wasn’t the right signing. “Both clubs have been pretty successful — and this is where Manchester United have to go again. “Under Sir Alex they were there, but since then there have been quite a few different managers.” While title-chasing duo Liverpool and Pep Guardiola’s City have been a smash hit in...
    Everything Cameron Diaz Has Said About Stepping Away From Acting California DOJ drops criminal charges against utility over role in igniting 2018 fire A new era begins for Paris Saint-Germain as they play their first game since signing Lionel Messi -- likely without the Argentine for now at least -- and look to continue their winning start to the Ligue 1 season against Strasbourg. Mauricio Pochettino's first full season in charge of PSG will see them try to wrestle the title back from Lille though with such a star-studded squad winning the French league will be seen as something of an afterthought compared to their Champions League aspirations. © Provided by CBS Sports They made a strong enough start last week with a 2-1 win over Troyes but will be expecting to up their scoring margin against Strasbourg having scored four times in both of their meetings with Les Coureurs last season. Messi is set to be presented at the Parc des Princes on Saturday night alongside new signings Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi Gianluigi Donnarumma and Sergio Ramos. The...
    No purchase option Takefusa Kubo, Real Madrid’s Japanese international, underwent a medical examination at a Palma clinic on Wednesday before signing his one-season loan contract with RCD Mallorca at the offices of the Son Moix stadium. Kubo, who already played on the island in the 2019-2020 season, arrives on loan for one year without a purchase option from the Balearic entity. The 20-year-old Japanese winger, who performed well for his national team at the Tokyo Olympics and who played on loan for Villarreal CF and Getafe CF last season, played 35 games and scored four goals in his first spell in the DRC Majorca. In principle, the vermilion entity would take over the Kubo file, of about 2 million euros per year, but would not pay any amount for the transfer. The Asian footballer’s desire to return to Palma has been decisive, as other clubs such as Real Sociedad were also interested in having him. Homepage
    Bachelor Nation’s Sarah Herron Is Engaged to Dylan Brown: See Her Ring Top Environmentally Friendly Companies To Invest In © Provided by CBS Sports Washington Nationals left-hander Jon Lester on Monday night returns to Wrigley Field to face his former team, the Chicago Cubs, for the first time since departing via free agency this past offseason. Lester, now 37, was key member of the Cubs teams that from 2015 through 2020 racked up five postseason appearances and three NL Central titles and in 2016 won the World Series for the first time in more than 100 years. Lester's signing prior to the 2015 season at a cost of $155 million over six years signaled that the Cubs were serious about winning a championship.  Lester during his Cubs tenure more than justified the investment in his services. Across those six seasons with the Cubs, Lester went 77-44 with a 3.64 ERA (his exact ERA in his nine seasons with the Red Sox) and a 3.22 K/BB ratio. He also racked up 12.9 WAR with the Cubs, twice finished in the...
    Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Are Just Friends as the Two Spend Time Together, Source Says 20 Home Renovations That Will Hurt Your Home’s Value When the Toronto Blue Jays signed free-agent outfielder George Springer to a six-year contract worth $150 million over the winter, they visualized him serving as a potent leadoff hitter and member of their ascending lineup. Though health issues delayed the realization of that plan, Springer delivered his first home run since joining the Blue Jays on Saturday night against Charlie Morton and the Atlanta Braves. © Provided by CBS Sports Springer's opposite-field blast came during the bottom of the third. It was a two-run shot that cut the Braves' lead to 4-2. According to Statcast, Springer's home run left the bat traveling at 102.3 mph and covered some 354 feet to right field.

Leave it to the Las Vegas Raiders to make the weirdest signing possible ahead of the NFL Draft. The Raiders did hit pay dirt with Darren Waller, a former wide receiver at Georgia Tech, whom they picked up from the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad. The tight end has had back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving campaigns. Maybe they know what they’re doing? Next: 3 Mistakes The Raiders Made This Offseason
    Inaugural poet Amanda Gorman is Vogue's May cover star, and inside the issue, the 23-year-old shares what she learned from her inauguration appearance, how she is picky about choosing campaigns since she signed with IMG, and what she thinks of the Obamas, Hillary Clinton, and Oprah. Since appearing on stage to read her original poem, The Hill We Climb, at President Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, Amanda has been everywhere, from star-studded panels to magazine covers to the Super Bowl. But, she told  Vogue, she doesn't take every single opportunity that comes her way, no matter how much it pays — and she has turned down millions of dollars worth of deals that weren't right for her.

    Joe Biden is planning to propose the first substantial federal tax hike since 1993 for Americans to help pay for his long-term economic program after he signed the largest stimulus package in U.S. history with a price tag of $1.9 trillion. Now the White House is preparing to roll out another sweeping plan to tackle infrastructure and the economic crisis, which some say could fall somewhere between the $2-$4 trillion mark. Biden plans to kick off his cross-country tour this week promoting and seeking to bolster enthusiasm for the coronavirus relief package, where the White House will also ensure he receives credit for benefits included in the bill. First lady Jill Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris and first gentlemen Doug Emhoff will also hit the road this week to promote the sweeping legislation. Next on the president's docket is getting another pricey funding bill through Congress that addresses infrastructure, climate and education. Four people familiar with discussion told Bloomberg that Biden is expected to propose a series of tax increases, including repealing parts of Donald Trump's 2017 tax law that...
    PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG continues to disappoint since signing his new £350,000-a-week contract at Arsenal. The 31-year-old is now without a goal in five Premier League games after he drew a blank in the 1-0 defeat against Leicester on Sunday. 2Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has struggled since signing a new deal His last strike in the top-flight came in the season-opening win against Fulham at Craven Cottage - before he put pen to paper on his lucrative deal. ARSENAL NEWS LIVE: Click here for the latest Gunners news   Aubameyang did find the back of the net in last week's Europa League win against Rapid Vienna, but his performances in the Premier League have been below-par. The Gunners skipper may have created more chances per 90 minutes after his contract extension, but his shot output may worry fans. Prior to his new deal, the ex-Borussia Dortmund striker averaged 2.8 shots per game, but it is now down to just one. And his shots on target have dropped from 1.3 to 0.6, with his touches in the opposition box now at 2.4 every...
    PIERRE-Emerick Aubameyang has ‘dropped off and not looked the same player’ at Arsenal since his big money contract signing, according to Darren Bent. Fans worked themselves into a frenzy as they fretted over the future of their key man, whose contract was running down. Rex Features 3 Talksport pundit Darren Bent thinks Aubameyang’s performance levels have dropped of late Getty Images - Getty 3 The Gabon international has failed to register in the league since his opening day strike at Fulham But they breathed a sigh of relief when he finally brought the saga to an end last month by putting his signature onto a £350,000-a-week deal. Aubameyang’s performances, however, haven’t been at their usual high standards and he has registered only one goal in six Premier League games. The team’s lack of firepower has been one of the reasons they have lost three of their last four league games, including last night’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Leicester when they could not convert their chances. The loss prompted some to compare Arteta’s opening batch of games...
    San Francisco 49ers’ George Kittle has been in the news all throughout the 2020 offseason. Mainly because he was in line for a new contract after spending three years on his initial deal. Prior to his extension, Kittle was severely underpaid. Especially considering the fact that he’s been one of the top three tight ends in the league over the last two seasons. Of course, the San Francisco-based organization gave their star player exactly what he wanted. But with great power (and money) comes great responsibility. Here’s an interesting request that 26-year old Kittle got after he penned his record-breaking deal.
