    An upstate New York restaurant owner, along with his legal representatives, discussed new developments in their case against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s restaurant curfew on Monday. Donald Swartz, who owns Veneto Wood Fired Pizza and Pasta in Rochester, N.Y., told "Fox & Friends" on Monday that the 11 p.m. curfew in New York, which was implemented by the state, "just got removed" for 90 restaurants and bars over the weekend. Last month, Cuomo increased the state’s curfew by an extra hour saying that starting Sunday February 14, bars and restaurants were allowed to remain open until 11 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. in New York because of the continuing decline of COVID-19 infection and hospitalization rates, WROC-TV reported. The 90 bars and restaurants suing New York state over the coronavirus-related closing curfew were allowed to stay open until their normal 4 a.m. closing time this weekend after a ruling Saturday night by a state Supreme Court justice....

    FORGET glory, glory Man United... this is boring, boring Man United. Their last FOUR Premier League matches against their so-called 'Big Six' rivals have ended 0-0 - now including both with Chelsea this season. 5 And to make matters worse, they have not scored in their last SIX. To a certain extent, the cautious approach is understandable following the 6-1 humiliation at home to Tottenham back in October. But Chelsea twice, Arsenal twice, Manchester City and Liverpool have all taken on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in recent months - and barely been threatened defensively in 540 minutes of football. This afternoon's stalemate at Stamford Bridge was the latest in a dire run of results and performances. United mustered four shots on target in West London - not helped by Bruno Fernandes going missing in a big game yet again, losing possession a staggering 20 times. Marcus Rashford barely...

Finally, last week and after 6 months of harassment, a Los Angeles judge granted the winner of five Grammy Awards a temporary restraining order against the 23-year-old stalker, which we hope will be extended at the hearing scheduled for the March 4.

    By Madeline Chambers BERLIN (Reuters) - A Berlin court ruled in favour of the heirs of the Prussian monarchy on Thursday in a dispute with a historian, the latest twist in a legal battle for compensation for treasures taken from the Hohenzollern dynasty after World War Two. The family, which ruled Germany until Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated in 1918, has demanded the return of thousands of paintings, sculptures and books from the German state as well as compensation for the expropriation of property by the Soviet Union whose forces occupied eastern Germany. The question of the Hohenzollerns’ relationship with Hitler is central to the family’s claims. Under German law, compensation is only possible if the claimant did not significantly assist Nazis' rise to power. Some historians argue the role of the Hohenzollern family was insignificant. Others say appearing with Hitler and his associates, including in a famous photo of Hitler...

On Wednesday, Moss took to his Instagram stories to share a photo of himself getting a pedicure. He revealed that he had “lost a bet” and evidently had to paint his toe nails. Fans were quick to...

    The next two months will be an extremely exciting time for UFC fans. Multiple titles will be on the line over the next three PPVs, and several other interesting fights booked as well. The busy period kicks off with a fight card on February 6th as a resurgent Alistair Overeem takes on a dangerous challenge in Alexander Volkov.  Unfortunately, the fight card has been dealt with a cancellation. For much of 2020, fights fell out last minute due to fighters testing positive, or the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic. This time around it is Andre Ewell who has to miss out as he tested positive for COVID-19.  Read: Dustin Poirier rejects the idea of Conor McGregor changing his stance at UFC 257 Askar Askar set to make his UFC debut on short notice Fights falling out last minute has meant that the UFC has had to scramble multiple times...
    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Kemba Walker is still not where he — or the Celtics — need him to be for the point guard to make his usual impact on games. But he looked much better during Tuesday night’s win over the Golden State Warriors. Walker shook off an abysmal shooting night against the Lakers on Saturday, when his 1-for-12 showing cost Boston a win in the team’s biggest game of the year. He had a much less abysmal night against Golden State, and it started in the opening minute when Walker drained his first two shots. His first make was one of those Walker step-backs, similar to the shot that would have won the game for Boston on Saturday night. “It felt good to see the ball go in,” Walker said of his quick start following Boston’s 111-107 win. “But I wanted to be aggressive...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — David Pastrnak connected on a couple of shots, Trent Frederic traded punches with Tom Wilson and the big, bad Boston Bruins finished their comeback this time.

    The case for and against Charles Oliveira getting the next UFC title shot By: Daniel Cunningham February 1, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe UFC‘s lightweight division is in a very unique spot. There’s still not really clarity at the top of the division with the undisputed champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov (29-0), seemingly retired. Yet, he still holds on to the title. Just over a week ago at UFC 257, we saw Dustin Poirier (27-6, 1 NC) knock out Conor McGregor (22-5). In retrospect, this fight should have been for the vacant UFC lightweight title if Khabib is truly retired. However, Dana White has held out stripping Khabib in hoping he’ll come back. In all likelihood, Khabib is not going to return to the UFC. At least, he’s not going to return anytime soon. With that, there’s no doubting that the top guy in the UFC...

    Two days ago, the Lakers had a convincing win against a tricky Eastern Conference opponent in the Cleveland Cavaliers. The star of the show was LeBron James who put up a gigantic 46 points against his former team. The 46 point performance was a season-high for the King who cemented his status as one of the front-runners for the MVP race. With this win, the Lakers capped off an impressive tenth win on the road. LeBron James channels inner Michael Jordan against the Cavs Despite his dominant performance in the first half, the King went cold in the third quarter shooting 1-5 from the field. This gave a chance to the Cavs to take the lead. During the end of the third quarter, when the King missed a three point attempt, a member of Cavs’ front office got super excited to see LeBron flunk the shot. LeBron certainly took that...
    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton joined "Fox News Primetime" Wednesday to discuss a federal judge's decision to order a temporary hold on President Biden's 100-day deportation freeze. United States District Judge Drew Tipton's decision comes on the heels of a lawsuit brought by Paxton last week.  "We brought this lawsuit for a couple of reasons," Paxton told host Maria Bartiromo. "One, we had an agreement, [with] Texas and Homeland Security, that they wouldn't make any major shifts in immigration policy without giving us sufficient notice to adjust. Second, federal law specifically requires that deportations take place if people are here illegally, and this president has decided to ignore what's been passed by Congress ... which we then think is a violation of the U.S. Constitution."The moratorium set forth by Judge Tipton will last a total of 14 days but Paxton is confident that the ruling will open the eyes of other attorneys general across the nation.

    The Milwaukee Bucks didn’t make it easy for the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. This matchup kept the audience on their toes as there was so much going on even till the dying moments. Even though the Lakers secured a 113-106 victory, one man isn’t happy with the way he performed. Yes, that’s LeBron James’ right-hand man, Anthony Davis. Why is Anthony Davis disappointed? Prior to this game, the purple and gold had suffered a shocking loss against the Golden State Warriors. In fact, they actually blew a 19 point lead and received a lot of criticism for the same. Given that the Lakers are the defending champions and were having a nearly perfect season, this loss shook everyone in the squad. Needless to say, somebody had to take the blame for it.

After all, these are two teams who struggle in their own zones. © Getty Images But, for much of the Oilers’ eventual 3-1 win against the Maple Leafs, it was ugly because of a lack of offense.

    If there is one team that has been very unpredictable so far, it’s the Golden State Warriors. Either they lose to a team that didn’t stand a chance against them, like the Indiana Pacers, or they take everyone by surprise and come out as winners against the team leading the West, the reigning champions, Los Angeles Lakers. The Warriors made it count The Warriors lost all hope until Draymond Green made his layup in the last three minutes of the game, giving the Warriors their first lead of the night. The Lakers were ahead of them the whole time but choked in the last quarter. A 12 point lead in the first quarter, a 16-point lead by half-time, suddenly tanking a 19 point lead, then losing 115-113.

This is the Islanders’ first home win against the Bruins in 8 years. The Islanders only managed to put the puck behind Tukka Rask once.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Minnesota Wild won only two games last season when trailing after two periods. They have already equaled that total during the first week of the season. Marcus Johansson scored with 11 seconds remaining in overtime Saturday night as the Wild rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings for the second straight game after trailing by two goals after two periods. “You don’t want to continually do this, clearly, but two games in and if you have that good feeling and good belief hopefully it translates earlier more nights,” Wild coach Dean Evason said. Johansson took the pass from Kirill Kaprizov and one-timed a wrist shot past Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick on his stick side to complete the comeback and give Minnesota its first 2-0 start since 2015-16. It is also the first time since October 2014 that the Wild have overcome multi-goal...

While Trotz did not provide an update on Varlamov...
    It looks like the former Houston Rockets superstar and new partner in crime for the Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant is determined to set his reputation straight. After a plethora of accusations about James Harden being unprofessional, he has proved, once again, why he was the face of the Rockets’ franchise. Brooklyn Nets vs Orlando Magic It’s been about 48 hours since he left the Rockets and the man is already setting records with his new team. In the matchup with Orlando Magic, the Nets defeated them 122-115, and this had a lot to do with Harden’s performance. In fact, his performance will go down in history. James Harden has become the first play ever in the league’s history with a triple-double in his debut with a new team. The man ended up with 32 points, 14 assists, 12 rebounds, and 4 steals. However, this wasn’t the only highlight of the...
    The Minnesota Wild won only two games last season when trailing after two periods. They have already equaled that total during the first week of the season. Marcus Johansson scored with 11 seconds remaining in overtime Saturday night as the Wild rallied for a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Kings for the second straight game after trailing by two goals after two periods.

Johansson took the pass from Kirill Kaprizov and one-timed a wrist shot past Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick on his stick side to complete the comeback and give Minnesota its first 2-0 start since 2015-16. It is also the first time since October 2014 that the...
    ENGLAND suffered a dramatic wobble as they attempted to score just 74 runs to win the First Test. They lost three quick wickets and an apparently straightforward run chase suddenly turned into something worryingly twitchy and tense. 2England wobbled on day four as they fell to 14-3 chasing just 74 to win the First Test in Sri LankaCredit: Sri Lanka Cricket Dom Sibley and Zak Crawley were both dismissed cheaply and then captain Joe Root was run out for just one. Root, who scored a brilliant 228 in England’s first innings, was the man who could have provided calmness to the panic unfolding around him. But his departure left England tottering at 14-3. However, Jonny Bairstow and Dan Lawrence managed to survive until the close of day four, when England reached 38-3 and they are surely destined to win.

            by Scott McKay  If we’re going to be objective about it, we’ve got to give the Mark Zuckerbergs, Jeff Bezoses and Jack Dorseys of the world their due — the apps they’ve created are some of the greatest technological marvels in history. It’s too bad that the purveyors of the technologies Apple, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Amazon have on offer are such profoundly myopic, evil bastards. And the events of the past week make it pretty clear that these companies are literally out to get conservative America. By extension, they’re really out to get America itself, because anyone tyrannical and dastardly enough to wish to ruin people financially and to destroy their power to speak over simple political or philosophical disagreements isn’t just a political partisan. Anybody who would do what these people did to Parler for the sin of providing a platform for conservatives...

    The Houston Rockets played their first game without James Harden on the roster tonight since 2012. They also had Eric Gordon and John Wall missing due to injury. But despite that, they beat the San Antonio Spurs after a heroic effort from Christian Wood. They took down their Texas rivals 109-105 in a close encounter. During the post-game interview, Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal apologized to Wood for not being familiar with his game. Wood was at his hilarious best and replied, “Oh man, you’re a casual.” But Shaq just pretended to ignore that and continued to praise him and said that he is proud of him. Knowing Shaq’s relationships with modern-day centers, Wood could be on the receiving end of a lot of unwarranted criticism in the future. Can Christian Wood step up to be the leader for the Houston Rockets now? With the loss of Harden, not only...

    Odell Beckham Jr. won’t be playing for the Cleveland Browns when they travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the AFC playoffs on Sunday, but the superstar wide receiver has made it clear that he has all the confidence in the world in his teammates.

    Kevin Durant came back into the league after a period of 560 days which gave his body enough time to recover from the torn Achilles tendon. Many experts who followed his recovery claimed that they’ve never seen someone pull through so effectively from such an alarming injury. While this was good news for the Brooklyn Nets, he still needed to perform and prove it. After 9 games into the 2020-21 season for him, one can easily conclude that KD is back with a bang. He showed a touch of his improved self in the preseason against the Celtics when he dropped 25 points. That form continued indefinitely for the games to come.

    Getty Images Odell Beckham Jr. of the Cleveland Browns. The Cleveland Browns acquired Odell Beckham Jr. two offseasons ago with the hopes that the star wide receiver could help the franchise end a playoff drought and shift the culture in combination with other key pieces like Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett, Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry — his best friend. The OBJ experiment in Cleveland has had mixed results, mostly due to injuries that have kept Beckham from producing at his expected level. Beckham dealt with multiple injuries last season as the Browns stumbled to a 6-10 finish and then tore his ACL in October, ending his second year in Cleveland early. However, Beckham, who has mostly been quiet during the Browns’ historic run to the postseason, was one of the team’s most vocal supporters on Sunday night as they blasted the Steelers 48-37. Beckham live-tweeted the game, following...
