    World Cup 2022: Japan shocks Germany in Group E match

    Japan made things difficult for the rest of Group E after the squad pulled off the second World Cup shocker in as many days with a 2-1 victory over Germany. Germany came into the tournament as one of the favorites to win it all with a veteran-laden squad that won the title in 2014, but disappointment struck again after the team failed to get out of the group stage in 2018.

    Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia score: World Cup stunner as Lionel Messi and team go down in massive Group C upset

    Saudi Arabia earned themselves a place in World Cup history with one of the great shock wins in the tournament’s 92 year history, overturning an early deficit to stun Argentina and win 2-1 at the Lusail Stadium. No team had beaten Lionel Scaloni’s side since Brazil more than three years ago but this stunning triumph was no less than the Saudis deserved for an energetic, front-footed performance that saw their high press utterly rock one of the pre-tournament favorites before a rock solid defense of Mohamed Al-Owais and the imperious Hassan Tambakti guided their side to three points.

    Thunder Missing Depth Between Tre Mann and Darius Bazley Injuries

    Oklahoma City is off to a 7-9 start that honestly feels surprising. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has willed the Thunder to wins, playing like a legitimate MVP candidate over the first 16 games of the season. What’s even more interesting, though, is that Oklahoma City has dropped multiple winnable games already. Early on, the Thunder dropped three nail-biters, one to the Pistons and two to the Bucks. The Bucks were without Giannis Antetokounmpo, though, and the Pistons are off to one of the worst starts in the NBA. After responding with a string of impressive victories over eastern conferences foes, it seemed like Oklahoma City had some serious rhythm. Last week though,…

    Yom Kippur and sports make for a busy traffic week

    Sunday, Oct. 2 – Saturday Oct. 8 ALTERNATE SIDE PARKING RULES ARE SUSPENDED WEDNESDAY FOR YOM KIPPUR REMINDER: The Bears take on the Giants on Sunday at 1 p.m. Combined with the sellout Aaron Judge Home Run Watch crowd for the 1:30 p.m. Yanks/Orioles game, this will lead to extra traffic on the Hudson River crossings especially as both games are likely to end between 4 and 5 p.m. The George Washington Bridge will be hardest hit. Use the New Jersey Transit rail shuttle to the Meadowlands as an alternative for Big Blue; the subway or Metro-North is your best bet to The Stadium. Fans wait to enter Yankee Stadium…

    Yaya Toure on his quest for legendary status at Manchester City and more | Football News

    Three Premier Leagues titles. Two La Ligas. The Champions League. The Africa Cup of Nations. Over 100 international caps. Four-time African Footballer of the Year. Yaya Toure boasts quite the footballing CV and yet this doesn’t even begin to do justice to a career which spanned 19 years, saw him play for seven clubs in seven countries, and culminated in helping spark a new Premier League dynasty into life in Manchester. Two years have passed since Toure brought his illustrious playing career to an end and still the scale of his achievements in the game, rising out of the Ivory Coast to international acclaim, remain difficult for him to comprehend.…

    Agent’s Take: Three veteran NFL quarterbacks who could soon lose their starting job

    The dynamics at quarterback are different than at other positions. A quarterback tends to get too much credit when a team wins and too much of the blame when his team loses.  Generally, the backup quarterback is a fan favorite. It doesn’t take much for there to be a clamoring for the second-stringer to play unless there is an Pro Bowl-caliber starter in front of him.  Head coaches usually don’t bench quarterbacks during the earliest stages of the season. It usually takes a little time for a change to be made. Here are three quarterbacks whose starting jobs could soon be in jeopardy without improved play.  Mitchell Trubisky, Steelers Trubisky…
