  • Protesters speak out against Steelers' signing of Vick
    PITTSBURGH -- On National Dog Day, a handful of protesters convened outside the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice facility to object to the team's signing of Michael Vick. Four women stood behind a green fence across the street from the team's South Side facility holding various signs, including one that read: "FIRST, BEN ... NOW, VICK ... WHAT NEXT." Another read: "Jail time is not enough. Ban Vick from football." The women are from the "Justice with Animals" group, protester Ellie Gordon said. Vick pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges in 2007 for his role in a dogfighting ring. He served nearly two years in prison and has played six NFL seasons since, including five with the Eagles and one with the Jets. The Steelers signed him Tuesday night. The objective of the group is "to show the Steelers we don't approve of this," said protester Natalie Ahwesh, a season-ticket holder. "This move is embarrassing. It's upsetting. I'm angry," Ahwesh...
  • Rousey rips into Mayweather again
    Ronda Rousey is taking a few more hard long-distance shots at Floyd Mayweather. A few weeks after defiantly saying she could take Mayweather in a no-holds-barred bout, the UFC champion boasted that she earns more per second than the pound-for-pound king of boxing. "[Floyd] said, 'You make $300 million a night, then you can give me a call' ... and I actually did the math, and given the numbers of my last fight, I'm actually the highest-paid UFC fighter and I'm a woman," she said. Rousey, approached Tuesday by a TMZ Sports photographer in Los Angeles, said that Mayweather can contact her to discuss her rebuttal to his recent boast about how big a payday he got this year once "he learns to read." "I think I actually make two to three times more than he does per second ... so when he learns to read and write, he can text me," she said in the TMZ video while out walking her dog. When pressed by TMZ on whether she makes more than Mayweather...
  • After loss and injury, is Baez finally ready for the Cubs?
    DES MOINES, Iowa -- The most powerful swing in all of minor league baseball begins each at-bat with a cold stare of indifference. And ends in a blur of violence. But when Javier Baez connects, when he syncs up his waist-high leg kick with the serpentine coil of his arms and his torso, what you marvel at is not the trajectory of the ball or the distance it travels. It's the sound that bat and ball make when they meet. It's a mixture of hunger and rage. A sledgehammer striking iron. Even listening to him take indoor batting practice is mesmerizing. On a recent afternoon in August, Baez sings along in Spanish to "Esta Noche" by Justin Quiles as he waits patiently for his turn to hit, deep in the bowels of the Iowa Cubs' Principal??Park. He fiddles with his fluorescent green batting gloves, cracks jokes with his teammates and bobs his head in time with the music, looking every bit like a baby-faced 22-year-old without a worry on earth. But when he steps inside...
