    STRASBURG, Colo. (CBS4) – The Strasburg High School football team returned to the field Friday for a second day of practice preparing for a shortened fall season under new CHSAA guidelines for the coronavirus pandemic. As a program declaring for season “A” they are quickly realizing the work required to get ready for their first game. (credit: CBS) “We’ve missed so much, you take so much for granted,” said Strasburg head coach Brian Brown on Friday. “I kind of feel like a fish out of water, trying to figure out what I’m supposed to do here.” Practice began this year the same week teams would already be a few games into their regular season. While the coach can notice the...
    They called him Magic, and if you played against Gale Sayers, you never forget why. “I remember on a kickoff one time, going down to cover him over at Wrigley,” a former Giants and Vikings defensive lineman named Bob Lurtsema said Wednesday. “He’s going full speed, and I got him in my sights. I go, ‘Well, this is gonna be easy.’ “He cuts to my left, to his right, I made a beautiful tackle of pure air. “That was the greatest move ever put on me at full speed.” All these years later, Lurtsema jokes: “Matter of fact, a fan came out on the field afterwards, picked up my jock strap and waited for me outside the locker room and...

    Chance the Rapper told followers to vote for whoever their mom is voting for, and now people are dragging him on Twitter Oil Rebounds on Stronger Stocks as Virus Casts Cloud Over Demand Is Drew Brees done? Heres what the Saints had to say about it on Monday night Through two games in the 2020 NFL season, Saints quarterback Drew Brees looks a lot like a guy who’s just about done playing quarterback at a plus level. In Monday night’s 34-24 loss to the Raiders, Brees completed 26 of 38 passes for 312 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Pretty good stats on their face, especially since Brees was working without receiver Michael Thomas, who’s out with an ankle...
    Maryland high school football players aren’t allowed to play yet, and coaches are rallying to change that. Keith Rawlings, head football coach for Edgewood High School in Harford County, says Maryland is one of only nine states that do not have a plan to return to playing high school football. “There’s a lot of high school football players, parents and coaches that are outraged that there’s not a season happening,” Rawlings said. Virginia has decided to move high school football to February. In D.C., the State Athletic Association has postponed interscholastic athletics until January. Rawlings will be joining the Maryland High School Football Coaches Association and the Baltimore Touchdown Club at the Let Them Play Rally in Annapolis on Saturday...
    Drew Brees hit back at suggestions he is in decline after a disappointing showing in the Saints’ 34-24 loss to the Raiders. The 41-year-old quarterback is in his 20th season in the NFL but he failed to shine at Allegiant Stadium on Monday, finishing with 312 yards, a touchdown and an interception on 26 of 38 completed passes. It has played into an emerging narrative that Brees – the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yardage, completions and touchdown passes – is losing his touch, but he rejected that notion and cited a wider malaise in the team. “Well, my job is to execute the offense,” he said, having seen opposite number Derek Carr chalk up three TDs. “My job’s not to have the most air...
    Should the New York Giants kick the tires on Devonta Freeman after Saquon Barkley injury? By: Alexander Wilson September 21, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe worst part about Sunday for the New York Giants wasn’t losing to the Chicago Bears, it was watching star running back Saquon Barkley fall to the ground in pain. Just two plays before his knee evidently gave out, Barkley hyperextended his elbow and left the field for a split second. Barkley’s return was welcomed with a sigh of relief, but it didn’t last long after jump-cutting to the right side of the field and making contact with Bears’ safety Eddie Jackson. By the time Saquon was engaged with the defender, his...

    Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury in the first quarter of the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Campbell received the handoff from Philip Rivers on an end-around run play. He rushed the ball up the right side when he was hit low by Vikings defensive back Harrison Smith.

    Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski has been the San Francisco Giants’ iron man this season, but the second-year slugger will likely miss his first game of the year on Friday against the Oakland A’s. Giants manager Gabe Kapler said a MRI revealed Yastrzemski has a mild right calf strain and it’s doubtful he’ll be available for a pivotal series opener at the Coliseum. It’s unclear when Yastrzemski might be able to play again, but instead of sending him to the 10-day injured list for the remainder of the regular season, the Giants are hoping Yastrzemski will heal quickly so he can return to the field for the club’s playoff push. Yastrzemski left Thursday’s 6-4 win over the Seattle Mariners in...
    President Trump’s responsibility in bringing back Big Ten football amid the coronavirus pandemic was a representation of the players who didn’t have a say in the matter, former college football coach Lou Holtz explained to “The Story with Martha MacCallum.” “Why did President Trump get involved? He got involved because the players and the families did not have a seat at the table,” he said. “He felt that he should represent them because they wanted to play.” The president spoke with Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Ward who announced the revival of the college football on Wednesday. Due to the development and availability of rapid coronavirus testing, the league will be returning on Oct. 23. TRUMP CONGRATULATES BIG TEN ON COMEBACK,...
    With Ohio State, Ohio, Akron, Toledo, Kent State, Bowling Green and Miami of Ohio idle because of the coronavirus pandemic, that leaves football fans in the Buckeye State with Thursday night’s Bengals-Browns game. Sorry, folks — Pro Picks probably will be watching Islanders-Lightning instead. At least this matchup is in Week 2, before Cincinnati and Cleveland are deeply dredging the bottom of the standings. Actually, the Bengals with top overall draft pick Joe Burrow at quarterback, were the better team in their opener before falling to the Chargers. Let’s forget about the Browns in their debut at Baltimore. That’s almost what they have done. “It is a short week, so we are kind of flushing it and moving on,” receiver...
    Two high school football players were suspended after carrying Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line flags onto the field to honor first responders who died on 9/11, after being told they were forbidden to do so. Brady Williams and Jarad Bentley, students at Little Miami High School in Ohio, were suspended from the team Monday, after the pre-game incident on Friday, September 11. The two students had asked permission to display the flags before the game, and were warned not to do so. But they displayed the flags anyway.  School superintendent Gregory Power said he had concerns that some see the flags as symbols of a political point of view.  Brady Williams (left) and Jarad Bentley (right), students at...
    Vic Fangio on the Broncos sideline. Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio mismanaged his timeouts in the final seconds of Monday night's game against the Titans and it cost his team a chance at victory. As the Titans drove down the field to set up the game-winning field goal, Fangio held on to his timeouts as precious seconds ticked off of the clock. By the time the Broncos got the ball back, there were only 17 seconds left for them to try and respond with a field goal of their own. That wasn't enough time, and the Broncos lost the game. Denver went home with two unused timeouts and a loss, and fans...

    (CNN)It's been over seven months since Super Bowl LIV, and the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs picked up right where they left off with a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans.However, this was far from a typical start to an NFL season. Interactive: What makes 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' so iconic The last time the NFL played, life in the US was still fairly normal.

    (CNN)The wait is over, the NFL is back and from your couch things may look relatively normal, but there will be some changes from years past. The season kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET on Thursday and will feature the reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans at Arrowhead Field in Kansas City, Missouri. Stands will appear almost emptyThe first difference will be the stands.

    Tua Tagovailoa doesn’t have to start for the Dolphins when the regular season kicks off, but he should see meaningful snaps starting on Week 1. Nothing should be more important to the Dolphins than developing Tua Tagovailoa this season. That’s why it’s imperative for Miami that their rookie quarterback gets regular playing time in every game. The Dolphins insist that Tagovailoa is fully recovered from the ugly hip injury that ended his collegiate career, but head coach Brian Flores insists that his injury is “part of the conversation” when it comes to playing Tagovailoa Week 1. That type of rhetoric drops a strong hint that Ryan Fitzpatrick will actually be the team’s starting quarterback when the regular season begins. That’s...

    The old EA Sports mantra had been “If it’s in the game, it’s in the game,” but that takes on a different meaning nowadays. As the first major team sports video game to come out during coronavirus pandemic, EA Tiburon is venturing into unknown territory. The industry is already in a tumultuous state. The NBA, WNBA and NHL are playing in bubbles. The MLB has canceled games because of COVID-19 outbreaks in the clubhouse. No fans are allowed to attend any of the matchups. The NFL has faced similar upheavals leading up to its season, but in “Madden NFL 21,” the developers opted not to have that reality as part of the game. One could call the entry a bit...

    METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Malcolm Jenkins sees historically significant opportunities before him with both the contending New Orleans Saints and with a racial justice movement that has gathered burgeoning momentum in recent months. He also sees no reason why his focus on one should necessarily come at the expense of the other, dismissing the notion that he lacks the capacity to succeed simultaneously on both fronts. That’s why the 11-year NFL veteran agreed to join a cable news network as a social and racial justice correspondent in the same year that he’s taking on a leadership role with a club that has its sights set firmly on the Super Bowl. Serving as one of his sport’s leading social activists is...
    It’s been a rough couple of months for Dan Snyder-owned Washington Football Team. There have been some massive changes that have taken place behind the scenes in DC over the last two months. The team was hit by major sexual harassment allegations against senior officials as per a report published by Washington Post. However, Snyder and his team of executives have somehow managed to weather the storm in recent weeks. The appointment of former NFL player Jason Wright as team president is part of their ‘rebranding’ drive. Wright played for Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons in the past. Upon his appointment, Wright became the first black individual to be appointed as an NFL team president. Here’s what...
    President Donald Trump welcomed Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the 'field of battle' on Wednesday night, shortly before the two prepared to open fire on his presidency during their speeches at the Democratic National Convention. The president tweeted a video that accuses Obama and Clinton of spying on him and setting up his administration to fail. 'Welcome, Barack and Crooked Hillary. See you on the field of battle!,' he wrote. The video, which runs about 100 seconds, news reports on the 'unmasking' - or naming - of officials who requested information about Michael Flynn, Trump's pick for National Security Adviser who eventually resigned that position and charges there was 'political spying' on Trump's 2016 campaign.  President Donald Trump welcomed...

    We’ve entered into an alternate dimension: The Cardinals are the home team at Wrigley Field The St. Louis Cardinals missed so many baseball games thanks to a COVID-19 outbreak in their clubhouse that they now have to play home games away from their friendly confines of Busch Stadium. With yet another doubleheader on their slate on Monday, the Cards had a rare home-away split with the Chicago Cubs. Thankfully, no one had to make the near five-hour drive from St. Louis to Wrigleyville. For the first time since 1898, the Cardinals were the home team for a game in Chicago. For scheduling reasons, the Cubs hit first in their own empty stadium, proving once and for all how weird baseball...

    President Trump’s campaign has redeployed to the field to woo voters in person despite a summer coronavirus surge as presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s team wagers that people scarred by the pandemic prefer virtual engagement. On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence traveled to Iowa, a swing state where Trump and Biden are running even. On Sunday, senior Trump campaign official Mercedes Schlapp is to headline a Women for Trump bus tour event in Wisconsin, another battleground where the president trails.

Then he wasn't. The former third-round pick was the league's leading rusher as a rookie (1,327 yards) and, in 2018, on his way to another 1,000-plus yard campaign in Kansas City's high-flying offense before the video of him physically assaulting a woman surfaced and resulted in his immediate release from the team. Hunt signed with the Cleveland Browns last season, served an eight-game suspension, and played...
    It’s getting to look somewhat like … football. On Wednesday, new Giants head coach Joe Judge witnessed something for the first time: all 80 players on the field, at the same time, actually wearing helmets. This development — Phase 2 in the gradual ramp-up during the summer of a global pandemic — was as close to the real thing as Judge has mustered in training camp. The offense and defense were split up during practice, but at least the entire team was on the grass fields, together at last. On Friday, Phase 3 kicks in, as players will wear protective shells. On Monday, full pads are allowed for the first time. “I’ve been coaching football every day here,’’ Judge...

    The vast majority of major league teams always try to have one or two tough left-handed relief pitchers in their bullpen to create late-game matchups problems for left-handed hitters. Entering a four-game series at Coors Field, the Giants have seven lefties on their pitching staff. The team announced Monday that southpaw Andrew Suárez had been promoted from the team’s alternate camp in Sacramento while right-hander Andrew Triggs was optioned a day after making his 2020 season debut. In his first MLB appearance in more than two years, Triggs recorded an out to end the sixth inning but walked the bases loaded in the seventh in Sunday’s 9-5 loss to the Rangers. Triggs will remain in Colorado and join pitcher Dereck...

Also a word search revealed that the Thursday story doesn't refer to "women" or "woman" a single time. What was the reaction?

She advised to avoid congregating in close numbers even outside when possible. Cases linked to bars and restaurants are declining but are the most...

    It’s a strange Opening Day at Oracle Park. The plaza outside Willie Mays Gate is empty, except for Mays’ statue, with a banner behind him. It doesn’t read “Opening Day”; it reads “Black Lives Matter”.

On the McCovey Cove promenade beyond the right-field seats is a ball hawk known as Joe Dirt, with 27 home run balls to his stage name. Joe estimates there was only five percent of the normal pregame activity Tuesday around the cove compared to an average Opening Day. With no fans allowed inside the stadium, that comes as little surprise. The Giants put...
    What seemed Monday morning like a job for Bugs Bunny quickly turned into one for baseball commissioner Rob Manfred, who was unceremoniously presented with the first test of Coronaball when the Miami Marlins acknowledged an outbreak of COVID-19 in its ranks. Not unforeseen, but something with which baseball probably hoped to contend well after teams had played only three games. Worse, the Marlins played Sunday in Philadelphia knowing three of their players had just tested positive for the novel coronavirus that has killed more than 147,000 Americans. Because the shortstop thought it was a good idea. Not the team physician, or head trainer, or even manager Don Mattingly. Miguel Rojas. “He’s always texting the group and getting the feelings of the...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Baseball is back in Chicago, but it is of course much different in 2020. Usually the lots outside Guaranteed Rate Field would be filling up with tailgaters a couple hours before a game, but for the opener of the shortened 2020 season, there won’t be any tailgating, because fans aren’t allowed in the stadium for now. The only fans inside the ballpark will be more than 1,500 cardboard cutouts as part of the team’s FANtastic Faces promotion, which raised more than $55,000 for White Sox Charities. They are not doing the cutouts at Wrigley Field, but there will be plenty of other changes around the Friendly Confines, including extended dugouts and ads covering the bleachers instead of...

    (CBS4)- The Colorado Rockies open their 60-game 2020 MLB season at the Texas Rangers new ballpark this Friday, July 24.

    The National Football League’s referees will be making every effort to minimize the risks to their health, when they return to the field. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the league’s in-game officials will be wearing masks during the games. Age (average is 53) and/or medical history puts some officials in higher-risk categories. And theyre in close contact with players/coaches. Testing is a huge issue, Green said; officials want it twice a week (once in home city, once in game city). Opt-out also being negotiated. https://t.co/FFt8CWOb8f — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) July 10, 2020 As Pelissero reports, another interesting twist is the consideration of electronic handheld whistles.
