The Warriors Outdid Themselves With A Supernova First Quarter The Warriors Outdid Themselves With A Supernova First Quarter

Technically, the second-place Golden State Warriors were playing against the best team in the West when they took the floor tonight against the Denver Nuggets.

MLS had a big ceremony today to announce that the league’s 27th club, Austin FC, will start playing in 2021. The franchise is an expansion team, not a relocated Columbus Crew (thank god), and although their debut MLS game is more than two years away, the branding process has already begun.

Erik Gudbranson And Micheal Haley Fought A Proper Boxing Round On The Ice Erik Gudbranson And Micheal Haley Fought A Proper Boxing Round On The Ice

For unexperienced hockey fighters, there may not be any real strategy to winning a brawl other than “flail more intensely and accurately than your opponent” and “hold on so you don’t fall on your ass.” But when two properly trained punchers square up on the ice, the resulting competition can be as calculated as it is…

We're Approaching The Endgame Of The Machado/Harper Negotiations We're Approaching The Endgame Of The Machado/Harper Negotiations

Depending on how much you’re willing to believe the reported rumors, there appear to now be clear frontrunners in what seems to be at best to be three-team races for top free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado.
