    The story about the infamous Zamboni driver turned backup goaltender David Ayres will be made into a Disney movie, according to Yahoo! Sports. Ayres will help write and produce the film, Yahoo! Sports reported on Monday. Ayres became a hockey legend after he took over the goalie position during a 2020 NHL game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Backups James Reimer and Petr Mrazek had both left the game, but Ayres ended up making eight saves on 10 shots to help the Hurricanes win.

    US hits game-changing moment in COVID-19 fight Virus-weary Australia cheers prospect of Brisbane Olympics When Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine made the NBA All-Star Game, I braced for fashionable grandstanding. Some players toggle the line between potential and disappointment so closely and consistently that fans get frustrated and turn on them. They become an archetype — no defense, good stats on a bad team, high-flight athletes — and LaVine has long been the face. Snubs, on the other hand, are treated like the crumbling pillars of unselfish basketball. The game-tape guys to your “SportsCenter” guys. Your Khris Middletons of the world. They must be protected at all costs. When they miss the game, it is yet another mark on their ledger of self-sacrifice. Sports arguments rest on overblown contrasts. So I waited. But … crickets. LaVine didn’t just make the All-Star Game. He is transcending his reputation. The coaches...

    Texas power outages: Millions have no electricy as cold snap throttles energy supply OnPolitics: Biden gets a crash course LAS VEGAS — When Xander Zayas turned professional in 2019, he faced the same issues that every other fighter faces. Boxing is a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately sport, and he needed to prove himself over and over. He had to find ways to improve while handling the myriad out-of-the-ring demands placed upon him, such as making weight and dealing with the media. Zayas, though, had one problem to contend with that most of his peers did not: Homework. Zayas was only 16 when he turned pro and was still in high school. And so while many of his peers at Plantation High School were excited about homecoming and the prom, Zayas had to finish his homework and get his work in. He graduated last year and is now ready to kick into Phase...

By now, you probably know what occurred over the next three months. A succession of injuries to Allen (then Alex Smith) led Washington to hand the starting job back to Haskins, who turned in a disastrous two-game run.

Subscribe to The Yahoo Sports NFL PodcastApple Podcasts • Spotify • Stitcher • Google Podcasts  With just one week left of 2020 NFL regular season games remaining, the coveted MVP award that was, at one point, clearly destined for Russell Wilson, and at another, evidently Patrick Mahomes' for the taking, appears to have changed hands for perhaps one last time.

    Judge blocks Trumps executive order banning diversity training Texas man with COVID-19 sends wife letter before dying: I lived a happy wonderful life with you Will Bills AFC East title be first of many? Buffalo faces slipping Patriots on Yahoo Sports app The Buffalo Bills hadn’t won a division title since 1995, but approached the offseason like they were ready to break that streak. They paid a lot to get receiver Stefon Diggs from the Minnesota Vikings in a trade. The Bills made several shrewd free-agent moves to help depth. They drafted players who could help right away, like running back Zack Moss, receiver Gabriel Davis and kicker Tyler Bass. Presumably, two basic factors went into their decision to be aggressive. They liked their core. And they knew the New England Patriots were vulnerable. When the Bills face the New England Patriots on Monday night, a game that can...
    Coastal Carolina’s incoming president Michael T. Benson reportedly addressed a letter to the College Football Playoff committee criticizing its selections for the 2021 playoffs. The Chanticleers, Cincinnati and San Jose State finished the season undefeated but were left out of the College Football Playoff. Out of that group, only the Bearcats will play in a New Year’s Day bowl game. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I can’t help but think what might have been this season had all (Football Bowl Subdivision) programs been given the same equality of opportunity," Benson wrote, via Yahoo Sports. "Just think about that: Football is the only sport where the deck is stacked insurmountably against those who have the inevitable classification of 'Group of Five' before toe hits the leather each fall." Benson wrote that the selections lacked fairness and had an "absence of character." Separately, he told Yahoo Sports he thinks having...

But he delivered a message. The Memphis Grizzlies point guard savant is ready to build on his spectacular Rookie of the Year campaign. Morant poured in a career-high 44 points as he set a new Grizzlies scoring record in a season opener. He did it on 18-of-27 shooting from the field while adding a team-high nine assists. Unfortunately for the Grizzlies, it wasn’t enough in a 131-119 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. But Morant gave all he had in the effort, including this solo alley-oop in traffic off the glass that would play well in a dunk contest. JA.

But for the most part, Tom Brady’s debut season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has so far qualified as a success. As he watched the New England Patriots miss the playoffs for the first time since the last time they played without him, Brady has the 9-5 Bucs on pace to lock up their first postseason berth since 2007.

    Cuomo Extends Eviction Ban; 1 Million U.S. Shots: Virus Update Trump vetoes defense bill, setting up showdown with Congress Drew Brees tries to get back on track in rare Christmas game against Vikings on Yahoo Sports app The NFL generally doesn’t do Christmas. Even when Sundays fall on the holiday, the NFL treads lightly as the NBA dominates the sports landscape. The NFL staged two games on a Sunday Christmas in 2016 and one in 2011. In total, just 21 games have been played on Christmas in NFL history, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. With Christmas landing on a Friday this year, the NFL has bestowed the rare honor/burden of a Christmas game on the the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings. The NFC foes that have staged more than their share of high-stake drama in recent seasons will renew their rivalry in a holiday game...

There was nothing to judge. When Hopkins was available to the Cardinals from then-Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien for practically nothing, and the Cardinals somehow got to dump running back David Johnson’s bad contract in the process, it was not even a decision. It was one of the rare NFL moves that took no thought, the Cardinals just had to say yes and reap the rewards. It was practically an unprecedented trade because everyone knew who won the moment it happened. The trade has been everything the Cardinals hoped, and maybe more. ...
    Scores of students are getting Fs: Whats the point of failing them during COVID-19? Cuomo Extends Eviction Ban; 1 Million U.S. Shots: Virus Update Check the Tape: Chad Johnson on what makes Davante Adams the leagues best at the line of scrimmage One of the players I’ve enjoyed studying the most this year is Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams. At 28 years old, Adams might be the best wide receiver in the NFL. He’s on pace to catch 112 passes for 1,355 yards and 16 touchdowns, and the one thing you notice time after time is his rare ability to create separation off the line of scrimmage. So when I had the recent opportunity to speak to former All-Pro receiver Chad Johnson, I knew I had to ask him about Adams’ best trait.  Johnson, 42, has been “unofficially” retired for years now (he still hasn’t filed his papers),...

The majority of NBA players are not far removed from being housed for as many as four months inside a bubble environment on the Walt Disney World campus in Orlando, Florida, amid the coronavirus pandemic and protests against racial injustice. For the next seven months, those same players are scheduled to play 72 games in front of mostly empty arenas in 28 different cities as the pandemic continues to rage. The NBA is taking extraordinary precautions to ensure employee safety, the benefit of a billion-dollar corporation’s access to testing it partially funded, but there...

Subscribe to The Yahoo Sports NFL PodcastApple Podcasts • Spotify • Stitcher • Google Podcasts  After an 11-0 start, the Pittsburgh Steelers looked Super Bowl-bound and people around the league questioned whether 16-0 was in play? Three weeks later, the situation is very different. Having lost to the Washington Football Team, Buffalo Bills and, on Monday night, the lowly Cincinnati Bengals, the Steelers appear in free-fall. What doesn’t help matters is their Week 16 opponents are the Indianapolis Colts who boast the league’s best defense. After briefly touching on the San Francisco 49ers acquiring former tenth overall pick Josh Rosen from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Terez Paylor & Charles Robinson kick off the podcast trying to diagnose: what’s wrong with...

Sports (Michael Wagstaffe/Yahoo Sports) LeBron James believes he has been “part of two teams that have won the two hardest championships in NBA history,” lumping this year’s victory with the Los Angeles Lakers inside the Orlando bubble into the same category as his Cleveland Cavaliers’ 3-1 comeback against a 73-win Golden State Warriors team. Granted, the bubble took its toll on everyone, both mentally and physically, but basketball-wise, this fourth ring was James’ breeziest...

Unfortunately for scores of Jets fans, the team that’s tortured them for decades continued to twist the knife of dramatic irony.
