At the final press conference for the Lucas Matthysse-Ruslan Provodnikov fight last week, I had the opportunity to sit down for a nice chat with boxing legend Bernard Hopkins.

Eagles to Sign Tim Tebow to 1-Year Deal

Tim Tebow is back in the NFL, thanks to Chip Kelly. The quarterback-turned-analyst had been out of the game for a year, but has signed a 1-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles. This reunites Tebow with former Jets teammate Mark Sanchez and former college teammate/roommate, Riley Cooper. It still remains to be seen if Tebow [...]

It’s still rather shocking that Manny Pacquiao is out-talking Floyd Mayweather pre-fight. That’s usually where Floyd shines.

2015 NHL Playoffs Preview — Eastern Conference

Eastern Conference In many ways, the first round out East is more compelling than its Western counterpart. Their final two wildcard spots weren’t totally settled until the last game of the season, and the storylines that accompany the playoff teams are bi-polar. Contrast Ottawa’s meteoric rise to the dance with Pittsburgh’s comically bad stretch run [...]
