They played the game on the banks of the Moscow River, but given the noise, the waves of green Mexican national team jerseys and multi-colored sombreros and the loud pre-game rendition of “Cielito Lindo,” Luzhniki Stadium might have well as been Estadio Azteca. Thursday’s World Cup opener was played in a library compared with the atmosphere at Sunday’s Mexico-Germany game. And the majority of the 75,000-plus fans went home happy with Hirving Lozano’s first-half goal and Guillermo Ochoa’s eight saves […]

The Washington Capitals defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 on Thursday night to win their first ever Stanley Cup. Capitals centerman Lars Eller scored the game winner in the third period to seal the win. This is the first championship in one of the four major sports Washington D.C. has seen since 1992, when the Redskins defeated the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVI. Major League Soccer team DC United has won four MLS Cups, the most recent being in […]
Not only did Chuck Knox coach three NFL franchises — the Rams, Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks — but he was named the league’s coach of the year with all three. Knox, whose gritty toughness reflected his background as the son of a Western Pennsylvania steel worker, died Saturday after a lengthy battle with dementia, the Seahawks confirmed Sunday. He was 86. “I never had a guy that breathed intensity into a group of men before kickoff as well as […]
There might come a time this season when Hyun-Jin Ryu will be welcome to pitch the eighth inning. Or, frankly, there might not. Ryu has not lasted beyond seven innings in four years, in a game so long ago that Andre Ethier was the Dodgers’ center fielder and Cuban prospect Erisbel Arruebarrena, since banished by the organization, was the shortstop. In the interim, Ryu tore up his pitching shoulder. Doctors rebuilt the anatomy, and Ryu rebuilt the strength, but “handle […]

Fans who have waited in long security lines at sports venues can get a break at LA's newest pro stadium--and it won't cost them anything. Banc of California Stadium announced a partnership Wednesday with CLEAR, a security company used primarily at airports including LAX.CLEAR's biometric identity platform will get LAFC fans to the front of the line with "just the tap of a finger", according to a news release. All they need to do is bring a state-issued driver's license and passport and spend 3-5 minutes signing up at a kiosk by the stadium gate. They will scan their documentation, their fingerprints, answer a couple security questions, then be able to use your special pass immediately, said Ed O'Brien, CLEAR's head of sports. Lakers Add 2018 Draft Pick in Trade with 76ers Once they are registered, fans can bypass lines by just scanning their fingerprints in special CLEAR lanes. Those lanes will open at Banc of California Stadium Wednesday night for LAFC's match with Sacramento Republic FC."You will have to still go through the security screening process for the stadium, but that allows you to skip all those lines that back up behind the metal detectors or the ticket scan," O'Brien said.And the best part? A subscription is free and can be used at any other sports venues that use CLEAR, such as AT&T Park in San Francisco."The sports level is free because... teams don't want to charge fans extra for coming in since they're already paying for tickets," O'Brien said.Those who already use CLEAR's airport program, which costs $15 per month and is billed annually, can use it at those venues as well."What our members like...is that it's a very transferable, consistent experience from what we provide at our other sports partners but also at the airports," O'Brien said. "So if you're a CLEAR member, you can get a very consistent experience at LAX and at [Banc of California Stadium], which are obviously two very unrelated venues."O'Brien also said there are special deals for those who like the CLEAR experience at stadiums and want to try it at the airport.LAFC is the third MLS team to partner with CLEAR after the San Jose Earthquakes and NYCFC. CLEAR systems are also in place at nine MLB stadiums across the country and the NBA's American Airlines Arena in Miami.CLEAR touts its security system as faster and more secure, boasting a SAFETY Act certification from the Department of Homeland Security. Sports might see even more of it in the future. The company says it is developing new "biometric-powered stadium experiences", including ticketing and concessions.Photo Credit: CLEAR
