All signs point to NHL skipping 2018 Olympics

There is little interest among NHL executives to send players to the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said the issue was not even on the Board of Governors’ agenda when they met Saturday in Los Angeles, where the league’s All-Star festivities are being held.

The issue of the Olympics got about 10 seconds of discussion, Bettman said.

It wasn’t clear what motivated Day to storm out of the penalty box. He was assessed a 10-minute match penalty for abusing an official.

At that point, officials decided to end the game.

In a statement, Mark Krug, the NJCAA’s assistant executive director, said the organization is aware of the incident and will take all necessary steps to gather as much information from tournament officials and local authorities regarding violations to the association’s sportsmanship code. This type of behavior will not be tolerated in the NJCAA.

Bottineau won its 10th consecutive national title.

The NJCAA hockey championship will cease to exist next year due to a lack of teams.

Well that was borderline treasonous, and a disgrace to our nation and its proud and storied history. My father didn’t kick the Nazis’… and the puck drops!

Another archetype for sports movies is the zany announcer. Halifax Highlanders announcer Rod McCaudry ranks up there with the best of them.

And in the same vein, Kunin said he sees Granato as a logical fit for the job, one that will involve more teaching and guidance than in a conventional Olympic year.

I don’t think there’s anyone that deserves it more than him, Kunin said. He’s a competitor and he’s a worker and he expects results with his group and with himself. I see no difference going into picking this team of Olympic guys, and you can expect guys that are going to want to win, and are going to win. That’s going to be his mindset.

Registered sex offender Luke Heimlich requests removal from Oregon State rotation for NCAA tournament super regional

No. 1 overall seed Oregon State’s best starting pitcher has asked not to throw in the team’s super regional opener on Friday night, saying that he does not want to be a distraction for his teammates as they play Vanderbilt for a spot in the College World Series proper in Omaha.

Earlier this week, The Oregonian discovered that Luke Heimlich is a registered sex offender in the states of Oregon and Washington, after he was convicted of molesting a six-year-old family member when he was 15. The incident occurred in his hometown of Puyallup, Wash. According to an Oregon State spokesperson, the university doesn’t necessarily know immediately whether a student is a registered sex offender.

Wells’ throw into second is then mishandled upon arrival, as it gets by Matt Henderson into the infield. Third baseman Dylan Busby comes over in support, and his throw is misplayed at the plate by catcher Cal Raleigh.

So: a throwing error on Wells, a fielding error on Henderson, and a fielding error on Raleigh all on the same play. The result of all of this madness was plating the tying run, and the score currently sits at 5-4 LSU in the top of the ninth, after the Tigers managed to cross another run shortly after this weirdness. This game has been absolutely wild.

Everyone in the majors was a pitcher, shortstop, outfielder, or catcher when they were in high school. Give or take. If you’re playing first base in high school, that means you’re probably not as good of an athlete as the kids playing center, short, and catcher. And right. And probably second and third base. If you’re playing with five different teenagers who are better athletes than you, that probably means you’ll need to be the best hitter on the planet if you want to star in the majors.

The cub would be confused.

The day kicked off with a rowdy affair in Louisville, which saw the opening innings notch three throwing errors between the teams and an ever-elusive Kentucky bat interference that plated the Cardinals’ first run in the bottom of the first. From there, a pitchers’ duel broke out until Louisville’s Drew Ellis cracked a three-run shot over the left field wall in the fifth to put Kentucky away for good.

Ellis admired his blast for just a little too long for some as he made his way to first base, and Kentucky catcher Kole Cottam had words for him as he rounded down to home plate. A short shouting match then ensued not surprising, given the intense rivalry between the in-state nemeses but in the end nothing came of it.

The Wildcats managed a short two-out rally in the top of the ninth, but Louisville closer Lincoln Henzman was just too much for Kentucky in the end. Game, Cardinals, 5-2.

This would be a long, long, long fight. The cub would be confused. The penguin would be waddling around like a trapped flightless bird because it’s a trapped flightless bird. Ultimately the bear cub would get hungry and eat the penguin.

Now we’re in a quandary. We have three fighters left. It’s here we need to go with experience. Which has the ability to change the game in the middle of the contest? The minuteman. Years of repping the Patriots has taught it how to bend the rules, so for no conceivable reason it gets a bye — which leaves us with …

I could survive off pizzas and Cholula for a while, he continues. I’m on a deserted island. I’m not worried about my weight. I’m not worried about my figure.

I suggest he could throw coconuts to stay in shape. He says, yes, that would work and so would climbing trees.

Speaking of islands, we happen to be on one called New York City, and Syndergaard tells me there’s this restaurant in Tribeca where he orders steak with lobster on top.

Michigan had a 2017 draft pick in damn near every professional league

Michigan folks can be, uhh, a bit full of themselves sometimes. But credit where it is due, because when you do something this cool it’s certainly worth bragging about.

Michigan swept the big four professional sports with players selected in each 2017 draft, but it bested even that achievement by adding two other sports.

UM has a men’s soccer team as well as a lacrosse team, and had players drafted in both the MLL and MLS drafts. In total, 26 Michigan athletes have been selected in drafts this spring. The only major professional sports drafts the Wolverines got shut out are the WNBA and the NWSL drafts.

But Michigan truly stands above here with a wide array of exceptional athletes across a ton of sports. Maybe the Leaders and Best thing isn’t so corny after all? (It definitely still is.)

All true. It turns out that Tebow really is good for the box office, so there is certainly logic to Tebow being moved up to the Florida State League. It turns out that Tebow is mildly popular in that particular state, which means he’ll make money for the St. Lucie Mets, who are owned by … the New York Mets.

Naturally, you’d look toward Paul Goldschmidt and production as a big reason why the Diamondbacks are currently where they are right now (and you’d be right to do so), but they’re also getting solid production from the trio of Jake Lamb, Chris Owings, and David Peralta. Plus, it helps that Zack Greinke has been pitching well. Robbie Ray has been keeping up with Greinke, the duo of Zack Godley and Taijuan Walker has nicely rounded out the rotation, and Archie Bradley has shined in the bullpen.

Arizona may not be at the top of the NL West, but there’s still a chance that a certain fan in Washington D.C. and the rest of the fan base in the desert will have good reason to pay attention to them for an extended period of time this summer.

College World Series 2017 scores and bracket: Oregon State and LSU advance to the winners bracket

The first day of the College World Series has come to a close, and both games delivered on their high expectations, the LSU-Florida State tilt in the evening session, in particular, was a raucous, rowdy affair with players flying all over the place, and these teams need to play more often.

Meanwhile, the Red Sox have gone 11-8 in June despite being outscored by two runs on the month, and that’s also in large part due to the performance of their bullpen. While the offense has been scoring just over four runs per game, the bullpen led by Craig Kimbrel in what could end up being his top season to date has made sure every lead, regardless of size, ends up counting for Boston.

You can’t draw too much from the performance of either team: Boston’s pen as a whole is unlikely to remain as dominant as it’s been, with nearly every major contributor posting eye-popping numbers and zero after zero. However, their rotation is probably only going to get better as David Price shakes off the rust and Rick Porcello figures out what he’s doing wrong, and a solution at third base should be the focus to round out the lineup before the trade deadline.

The Yankees are in a position to add help both in the rotation and the bullpen, and even just the former would go a long way: If they had more starters they could rely on, they wouldn’t need to lean on the bullpen as heavily as they have. As is, the Yanks have one starter averaging at least six innings per start, and that’s 23-year-old Luis Severino, whose career high in innings in the majors changes with each frame he completes.

Young fan chugs frozen drink in contest, immediately regrets the brain freeze

If you ever find yourself in an Icee chugging contest, please know what you’re getting into. Please know that consuming a cold tasty treat in large amounts and in a short amount of time will cause a brain freeze. During a Memphis Redbirds game on Saturday, this young fan was so determined to win the contest. You could see him vacuuming that straw like there was no tomorrow.

When the race contest was over, immediate regret hung over him. Just look at his pained face.

I don’t know if he won; judging by hard he drank his Icee cup, he probably did. Morally speaking, though, he lost. His soul was crushed with a brain freeze.

Will this pick help the Angels contend with the best player in baseball? Or is this a building block that will be around for the unthinkable post-Trout era? The Angels can’t think of that now. They have to be satisfied with the talent on hand, and they got a fine prospect here.

The Angels are responsible for the greatest draft steal in the last 25 years, if not draft history, so it’s hard to get too giddy about what they’ve done at 10, but this was the player they wanted the whole time, and they have to be thrilled to have him.

As the Luis Robert signing showed, the White Sox are committed to building a major league roster with homegrown players, even if they have to pay a premium for them. It’s worth wondering what this pick would have looked like without bonus pools and slot suggestions.

This is a pick that can live up to the hype, though, and the White Sox bought in. The strategy is simple: Get the best possible player first, worry exactly where he’s going to fit second. It’s a fine tradition in the draft, and there’s no reason for the White Sox to veer away from it.
