A rundown of what makes the Super Bowl so special:
“At no time was there any intent whatsoever to try to compromise the integrity of the game or to gain an advantage,” Belichick said in an unscheduled availability on Saturday afternoon, eight days before the Patriots will play the Seattle Seahawks for the NFL championship.
“We decided that bringing back the World Cup was vitally important,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Saturday during the league’s All-Star game weekend festivities.
“We all grew up watching the X Games,” said Matt Haag, known better to his millions of followers by his screen name, NaDeSHoT.
“Honestly, I can say I feel as good as new,” Tulowitzki said Saturday at Rockiesfest, an event in which fans mingled with players at Coors Field. “But at the same time, no one is going to believe me until they see me go out and see me play. Come to spring training, watch me play and then make your opinion.”
The NFL is investigating a report that the New England Patriots used underinflated footballs in the AFC championship game while beating the Indianapolis Colts 45-7. ESPN cited anonymous sources Tuesday night in reporting the league found that 11 of 12 balls were underinflated by 2 pounds per square inch of air.
“Much ado about nothing,” said David Schultz, who works in IT in Boston.
The league did not specify what the gesture was in the win over Green Bay, but Lynch grabbed his crotch after scoring a go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter. Lynch was fined $11,000 for a similar gesture in Seattle’s win over Arizona on Dec. 21.
“I felt fine when I went up, and didn’t feel too good when I came down,” he said.
