    The Chicago Bears signed a purchase agreement for Arlington International Racecourse in September 2021, a move that takes the team a step closer toward securing property for a new stadium and leaving their longtime home at Soldier Field. The Bears on June 17 submitted one of multiple bids to purchase the Arlington Heights property, which Churchill Downs Inc. last winter announced would be up for sale for redevelopment. Bears President and CEO Ted Phillips said in a statement that finalizing the agreement was the “critical next step in continuing our exploration of the property and its potential.” Churchill Downs announced the sale price was $197.2 million and said it anticipated closing the sale in late 2022 or early 2023. Soldier Field, which is owned by the Chicago Park District, holds 61,500 fans, the smallest capacity in the NFL. The Bears also would be able to develop the 326-acre property around the stadium with shopping, dining and entertainment. Here’s what to know about the possible move from Soldier Field, with reaction from City Hall to Arlington Heights....
    Here’s what the Baltimore Sun sports staff had to say immediately after the Ravens’ 16-13 overtime loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the regular-season finale Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium: Childs Walker, reporter: Optimism creeped into M&T Bank Stadium. The Ravens looked poised to go up 17-6, and they were getting the help they needed with the Jacksonville Jaguars improbably beating the Indianapolis Colts. The Steelers had not moved the ball in chunks all day, and they could not stop the run. Instead of finishing off a toothless opponent, however, the Ravens reminded us why they were scraping to keep slim playoff hopes alive. Quarterback Tyler Huntley threw a tentative pass that was picked off in the end zone. Then, the Ravens let the Steelers go 60 yards on 10 plays — just their second substantial drive of the day — for a go-ahead touchdown. The Ravens tied the game on a clutch 46-yard field goal by Justin Tucker and went to overtime, because of course nothing about this season could be easy. You could spin the...
    The New York Giants’ latest wretched season comes to a merciful end on Sunday. But, as is their wont, the team managed to squeeze in one last bit of ignominy in under the wire. The embarrassing denouement to the Giants season came with just over five minutes remaining of the second quarter of their contest with the Washington Football Team. On third down and 9, trailing 3-0 and backed up against their own goal line, the Giants raised the white flag and didn’t even bother trying to get a first down — instead running a quarterback sneak apparently designed to give their punter a little breathing room. This complete surrender was predictably met with a loud chorus of boos from the Giants fans who were dumb loyal enough to put themselves through three more hours of misery before the offseason. Fox announcers Daryl Johnston and Chris Myers completely destroyed Big Blue for abandoning all pretense of actually trying to win. “I mean, really?” Johnston said. “You’re at the 4 yard line, and you don’t feel comfortable enough in your...
    A year after hundreds of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, more than 725 people have been arrested and the Justice Department is preparing for its first criminal trials next month in what it says is its biggest ever investigation. The Department of Justice will not say how many people are working on its investigation or how much has been spent. But Attorney General Merrick Garland laid out a sense of the scale of the federal investigation. 'Led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the FBI’s Washington Field Office, DOJ personnel across the department — in nearly all 56 field offices, in nearly all 94 United States Attorneys’ Offices, and in many Main Justice components — have worked countless hours to investigate the attack,' he said in a speech to mark the anniversary. 'Approximately 70 prosecutors from the District of Columbia and another 70 from other U.S. attorney’s offices and DOJ divisions have participated in this investigation.' Suspects had been arrested in nearly all 50 states and the District of Columbia,' he said.  Attorney General...
    With empty stadiums at the start of the year and mass postponements and cancellations of games at the end, 2021 probably wasn’t the greatest for watching televised sports. But there was a lot to watch. And if there was a game televised and a screen to view it on, there is a good chance we tuned in on our flat-screens, laptops, tablets or smartphones. Everything is subjective, of course, but here are some of the favorite things I watched from a couch, comfy chair or barstool in 2021. Best new show ESPN made the bold move to create a show that would compete directly against its own “Monday Night Football,” airing it alongside the game on ESPN2. The so-called “ManningCast,” featuring brothers Peyton and Eli Manning, proved to be an instant hit. The Manning brothers are not only very good at analyzing games, but Peyton proved to be an adept interviewer of guests, mostly from the sports and entertainment worlds. Special guests aside, it’s the repartee between the brothers that really makes it work. The Mannings...
    The world's largest ever hoard of iron age coins which were found in a field have have been bought from the Queen by the island of Jersey for £4million. The 'Le Catillon II' hoard was discovered in 2012 by two amateur metal detectorists who had spent decades combing a single field. Reg and Richard Miles initially received a tip-off in the 1980s from a woman who said she had spotted something that looked like silver buttons.

    Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Spencer Brown had a brutal game, but a wild touchdown celebration Sunday afternoon against the Carolina Panthers. Brown was so excited after Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught his eighth touchdown pass of the season that he wanted to reward his teammate with a drink. But Brown couldn’t wait until after the game, he was determined to get Diggs an adult beverage immediately. Fox cameras caught Brown signaling to a fan in the stands that he wanted a drink. Brown pulled Diggs over toward the crowd and grabbed what appeared to be a can of beer. The offensive lineman vigorously shook the tallboy, soaking himself in beer before tossing the can onto the field and imploring Bills Mafia to get louder.

    NASA launches Juno spacecraft: Data from the Juno spacecraft allow scientists to map Jupiter’s magnetic field, including the Great Blue Spot. 1/6 The US space agency NASA’s Juno mission recently flew 38 planes from near Jupiter. The mission was extended earlier this year and Juno was to fly through Jupiter’s moon Canymeet. The Juno spacecraft flew both Jupiter and Canymeet and recorded some amazing images and a mysterious sound. 2/6 NASA says the Juno spacecraft recorded 50 seconds of sound as it passed near the moon Canymeet. The audio clip of the moon was generated by the electric and magnetic radio waves generated by the planet’s magnetic field and detected by the waves instrument of the spacecraft designed to detect these waves. It sounds like a trippy space age soundtrack. 3/6 The Juno Mission team is continuing to study data obtained during Jupiter’s lunar canyon flight. During its flight, the Juno spacecraft traveled 1,038 km from the surface of the Canyon moon. At this time, the speed of the spacecraft was...
    The two largest moons of Uranus, the seventh planet in our solar system, may be hiding buried oceans, a new study suggests.  Uranus has 27 known moons, of which Titania and Oberon are the largest and second-largest, respectively.  Both could support a subsurface ocean today if there was little heat loss through their outer ice shells, reveal researchers who ran computer simulations.     This high-resolution colour composite of Titania was made from Voyager 2 images taken January 24, 1986, as the spacecraft neared its closest approach to Uranus WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT URANUS?  Uranus was discovered by William Herschel in 1781 and is named after the Greek god of the sky Ouranos. It is 1.84 billion miles from the Sun and orbits every 84 years. It's biggest moons are Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania and Oberon. It turns on its axis once every 17 hours and 14 minutes. It has the coldest temperatures of any planet in the solar system  with a minimum temperature of -371F. It has a set of dark very thin coloured rings surrounding it.  'I’d bet they do have...

    “Farm-to-table” is a household word at this point, a concept that may seem overplayed at times. But in 1999, when chef and artist Jim Denevan launched Outstanding in the Field, the legendary alfresco culinary roadshow, the idea of connecting the food on your plate to the place where it originated wasn’t a thing yet. What began as a single event held on a small farm eventually grew to include alfresco feasts in all 50 states and 16 countries around the world. The pandemic forced a hiatus, of course. But this summer, Denevan and his team hit the road once again, beginning with a Secret Sea Cove dinner with a fleet of guest chefs, food artisans, farmers, winemakers, brewers, cheesemakers and more. The Secret Sea Cove dinner — locations are kept under wraps until the eleventh hour — was held on the sands of San Gregorio Beach in San Mateo County, with guest chef Alex Hong from San Francisco’s Michelin-starred Sorrel restaurant serving up a superb menu. Next month’s feasts at Big Sur, in Half Moon Bay and Sausalito are already...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Carli Lloyd will play her last international match when the United States Women’s National Team plays South Korea Tuesday evening at Allianz Field. Minnesota’s soccer community is excited for what will be a big moment. Amanda Pieper will be going to the game with her daughter and friends. “I am a little bit fan-girling right now,” Pieper said. “I’m super excited, and I’m so happy that they’re in Minnesota for this game.” Andrea Yoch, the co-founder of the new women’s soccer team that’s starting in Minnesota early next year, is one of many dedicated soccer fans in Minnesota.

    Getty A flock of Ram defenders tackle Devontae Booker of the Giants during their Sunday, October 17 game. The grades from the Los Angeles Rams and New York Giants contest were officially released by analytics site Pro Football Focus on the morning of Monday, October 18, and there was a surprise at the top of the ratings. The highest graded Ram was not Cooper Kupp following his 9 reception day for 130 yards and two touchdowns. Nor was it the defense’s top breakthrough performer from the 38-11 romp Taylor Rapp, as the safety snatched a career-high two interceptions at MetLife Stadium. Not even Matthew Stafford and his four touchdown passes cemented his case as the Rams’ highest graded performer by PFF. So who did the national analytics site reward as the top graded Ram? It’s considered a surprise, especially considering he began the year on injured reserve but provided an extra jolt to the pass rush: Ogbonnia “Ogbo” Okoronkwo.Behind ‘Ogbo’s’ Breakout AfternoonThe 26-year-old edge rusher was given a 91.6 grade by PFF. That put him ahead of Rapp...

The Jaguars managed to beat the Dolphins 23-20 thanks to a last-second field goal from Matthew Wright that split the uprights. The path to that final play was not pretty for either team, however. The fourth quarter was filled with questionable decisions that came from both coaching staffs. Dolphins coach Brian Flores will face most of the heat for the calls that led to Miami's fifth straight loss. That said, Urban Meyer is not absolved of some of the choices that he made in the fourth quarter of Jacksonville's win.

    George Clooneys wife Amal reveals hes been teaching pranks Evergrande share trading suspended as Asian markets start the week mixed FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The New England Patriots being the New England Patriots, everything was done over the past several days to downplay what was scheduled to happen at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night. But even when you try as hard as Bill Belichick to swat away questions you don’t want to answer or have players repeat that it’s just a game on the schedule, Sunday night was unprecedented. Tom Brady, The Man for New England for two decades, the greatest quarterback who has ever quarterbacked, was back in the stadium he ruled, on the field he commanded — in another team’s uniform. And he wasn’t just here as a backup. He was here as the starter for the opposition, another Super Bowl title and MVP trophy in tow, his seventh, to go with the six titles he won with the Patriots. As if all of that weren’t enough, Brady came into the night almost assured of becoming the NFL’s...
    New York Yankees: Takeaways from a terrible day in the Bronx William Parlee October 3, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit There really is no other way to put it; the New York Yankees were a mess yesterday in one of the most embarrassing losses of the season at one of the most convenient times. They didn’t pitch well, didn’t hit, and in one of the most visible gaffs, Gleyber Torres only jogged to first base when he should have run for his life. At the end of the day, the Tampa Bay Rays scored 12 runs off the boys from the Bronx that only scored two. Montgomery gets booed off the field One of the New York Yankees’ most dependable pitchers this season couldn’t escape the scorn of Yankee fans as he was booed off the field after he gave up seven earned runs.

    On this week’s episode of The Brief, Markos Moulitsas and (substitute host) Carolyn Fiddler dove deep into this fall’s Virginia elections. Special guests Tram Nguyen, co-executive director of New Virginia Majority, and UNITE HERE Secretary-Treasurer Gwen Mills joined the show to offer insights into what we can expect in the Commonwealth this November—and whether the state is as safely blue as some beltway pundits like to think. Why are people talking about Virginia “becoming” blue when it appears to be a reliably and solidly Democratic state? Well, it wasn’t so long ago that this was far from the case—and Virginia’s shift to the left was “not a full transformation,” as Fiddler explains. A lifelong Virginia resident, she has firsthand experience with its regional diversity and its growing urban/suburban/rural divisions: The state is a very mixed bag, like most states, but we will see if Democrats are really as strong in the state as many seem to suspect they are … let’s keep in mind that the reason that a lot of people are paying attention to Virginia right now is that it’s very close to DC, and a lot of reporters...

    Albert Einstein's most famous equation, E = mc2, used in the theory of general relativity, has been used to create matter from light, scientists have said in a new study.   Researchers from New York's Brookhaven National Laboratory used the Department of Energy's Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), ordinarily used for nuclear physics research, to speed up two gold ions that are positively charged, in a loop. Albert Einstein's E = mc2 equation has been used to create matter from light They then accelerated the ions to 99.995 percent the speed of light in two accelerator rings in a near collision, with the ions carrying an electromagnetic field inside of them that shows off 'virtual' photons. The speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 meters (186,282 miles) per second. 'If the speed is high enough, the strength of the circular magnetic field can be equal to the strength of the perpendicular electric field,' Brookhaven Lab physicist Zhangbu Xu said in a statement. The arrangement of the electrical field and the magnetic field allows for the creation of a...

Just as Jake McGee was getting ready to pitch the ninth for the home team, a fan ran on the field near the Mets dugout on the first-base side and was able to keep the security team at bay long enough to take the mound, get the sign from an imaginary catcher and wind up for a pantomime pitch. Then he was tackled by two security guards and escorted off the field. “Those nine beers you had, guy, is going to cost you a night in jail,” Giants radio announcer Mike Krukow said.

    In any other context, players emerging from a slew of cornstalks right before a game would be regarded as bizarre or perhaps even beneath the dignity of a Major League Baseball game, but on Thursday night in Dyersville, Iowa, it was picture perfect. Thirty-two years after the release of Field of Dreams, a baseball field in the middle of an Iowa cornfield played host to its first ever Major League game. The New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox fittingly donned old school uniforms for the contest, played in front of a crowd of 8,000 fans in a ballpark whose dimensions were modeled after the Old Comiskey Park, the former home of the White Sox. In the 1989 film, Kevin Costner (who also walked out of the corn before the game) plays Ray Kinsella, an Iowa corn farmer who hears a voice that prods him to uproot his crop and build a baseball field. Rather than seek medical assistance, Kinsella does the right thing by doing what the voice tells him. It all works out in the end as Kinsella...

His legacy – for better and for worse – surpassed the limits of the stadiums. And although it has been months since his death, his stories continue to be made public. In recent days an interview has been published in which he talks about his time at Sevilla and his confrontation with Bilardo. The technician replaced the 45 minutes of the game. Something that the footballer did not accept considering that he had infiltrated the knee to play. Maradona’s story “He makes me infiltrate a knee“, the Argentine began.” I tell him ‘Carlos I can’t, my knee breaks.

    Six months after the January 6th MAGA riot on Capitol Hill, fencing remains up around the building, authorities are searching for 300 suspects from that day and a third of Republican candidates in next year's election are pushing the false claim Donald Trump won in 2020.  More than 500 people face charges stemming from the riot, when thousands of pro-Trump supporters stormed the building to disrupt the formal certification of Joe Biden's victory. Many blame Trump for ginning up his supporters with his unproven allegations of voter fraud.  The violence led to five deaths, a trail of destruction through the Capitol building, and a renewed sense of bipartisan loathing among lawmakers.  In the aftermath, the FBI is still seeking information on more than 300 people who were among those in the Capitol hallways that day. That includes a $100,000 reward for the person who planted two pipe bombs outside the offices of the Republican and Democratic national committees the night before the riot. The Justice Department has estimated that about 800 individuals may have been involved in the Jan. 6...

    Sha'Carri Richardson reacts after competing in the Women's 100 Meter Semi-finals on day 2 of the 2020 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Team Trials at Hayward Field on June 19, 2021 in Eugene, Oregon. Steph Chambers/Getty Images Sprinter Sha'Carri Richardson has been suspended from the US Olympic team for one month after testing positive for THC, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced on Friday. Richardson, 21, tested positive for THC, the main psychoactive constituent of marijuana, via a urine sample taken at the US Olympic Trials where she came first in the 100m, the USADA said. The one-month ban puts her participation at the Olympic Games later this month in jeopardy. The USADA said that Richardson's 100m results at the trials have been disqualified due to the positive test, but her athlete eligibility for relay races at the Tokyo Games will be determined by the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee and USA Track & Field.

    Golf’s first major is more than merely a tournament. The Masters is an event and a tradition. Past often meets present and future in the same grouping on a Thursday, and if we’re lucky sometimes they collide on a Sunday afternoon. Even with alterations and “Tiger-proofing” over the years, the course at Augusta National remains the same one that has hosted this event since 1934, although they reversed the front and back nines after the inaugural tournament. From the green jacket worn by the champion to the pimento and cheese sandwiches — reasonably priced — available for purchase, this tournament evokes tradition. Instead of fans, there are “patrons.” Instead of the rough, there is a “second cut.” And Augusta Nationals’ year-by-year contract with CBS creates a relationship between broadcaster and event unlike any other. Recently, tradition has taken a back seat: the 2020 tournament was moved to November due to the COVID-19 pandemic while the final round in 2019 was moved earlier due to thunderstorms in the forecast (the leaders teed off at 9:20 a.m. instead of the customary 2:40...
