Adidas Denies Claims of “Ball Superiority”

In lieu of recent allegations made against the German team for having what many have claimed to have been an unfair advantage is using the official World Cup ball for practice, Adidas has come out to deny the validity of any such statements and to testify to the fairness for all in the World Cup competition.

The ball in question was released last December 4th and premiered in Munich, thus helping to fuel the claim that Germans have had far longer to practice with the official ball than any other global team. At that time, however, the Munich competition where the World Cup’s official ball debuted had been attended by players from around the world, and since then the ball has been used in global competitions ranging from FIFA’s Club World Championship in Qatar to the matches being held in South Africa today.

Albert Haynesworth wants a trade from the Washington Redskins

The Washington Redskins have gone through some drastic changes this offseason, but despite acquiring a Pro Bowl caliber quarterback in Donovan McNabb and a future hall of fame head coach in Mike Shanahan, the Skins seem to be on the verge of another big change by trading away arguably their best defensive player in Albert Haynesworth.

Before last season, the Washington Redskins were thought to have landed a really big fish in free agency by signing arguably the best defensive player in the league in Albert Haynesworth. Even though the Tennessee Titans had one of their best seasons in franchise history, they weren’t willing to sign Haynesworth to the kind of money he was demanding and the Redskins took advantage.

One Year Deal Between Safety Hamlin and Ravens Reached

Thursday, the Baltimore Ravens confirmed that they have given a one-year contract deal to safety Ken Hamlin.  No specific details of this deal have been confirmed or released as of yet, but it is clear that he’ll take a pay deduction.

In the 2 1/3 innings that he pitched, he allowed no hits. In the third inning with one out, he walked Florida Marlins pitcher Anibal Sanchez.  He went on to throw three consecutive straight balls to Marlins’ Chris Coghlan.  It was then he departed from Wednesday’s game.  Left-handed Matt Harrison took Hunter’s spot on the mound and threw the fourth ball, which ended with a walk that went to Hunter.

Tom Izzo will stay with Michigan State

No other franchise in the NBA has been surrounded by more speculation during these NBA playoffs than the Cleveland Cavaliers. As if it wasn’t bad enough that the Cavs were knocked out in convincing fashion by the Boston Celtics in the second round, Cleveland has really started to clean house moving forward starting with the firing of five-year head coach Mike Brown.

Even though many people believed that someone had to take the blame for another earlier exit in the playoffs by the Cleveland Cavaliers, the firing of Mike Brown was a bit surprising to some. Continue Reading…

Oakland A’s Acquire Conor Jackson

The Oakland Athletics have been in some serious need of a right-handed batter especially after letting go of one less than 48 hours ago.  The Oakland A’s just previously designated Jake Fox for assignment, which allowed the team to look for a more proficient, quality, and dependable right-handed batter.

The door seemed to open up at the right time for outfielder Conor Jackson as he has now been acquired by the Oakland A’s.  Jackson definitely has the power at bat when it comes to offense.  The A’s ultimately hope that Jackson will come in and get the job done. Continue Reading…
