11/17/2018 9:46am

INDIANAPOLIS -- Colts rookie guard Quenton Nelson is a loud person when he makes a big play on the field. He just wasnt loud on the video of him delivering a crushing pancake block against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday that went viral Monday. The Colts, according to a team spokesman, took the audio of Nelson screaming from another play and added to the play where the No. 6 pick in this years draft pulled and flattened Jaguars safety Barry Church into the ground on a Marlon Mack run to the right side in the first half.

11/17/2018 7:26am

Three-time WNBA champion Sue Bird, introduced Friday as a basketball operations associate for the Denver Nuggets, wasnt looking to get into NBA management when the teams president of basketball operations, Tim Connelly, called this fall with what she called the perfect match for her goals. Not long after Bird led the Seattle Storm past the Washington Mystics in the WNBA finals, Connelly reached out to her through a mutual friend -- longtime NBA forward Caron Butler, a contemporary of Birds at the University of Connecticut who played for Connelly with the Wizards before Connellys move to Denver. Bird, who plans to return for her 17th WNBA season at age 38, was quickly sold on the fit. It was really a perfect match, because here they are giving me this amazing opportunity but also understanding that Im still a player, said Bird, the WNBAs all-time assists leader.

The First Ladies of the Iron Bowl
11/17/2018 9:46am

Editors note: This story was originally posted in 2014. One woman is from Mulga, Alabama, the other from Clanton, Alabama. They are both grandmothers of six. One cheers for Alabama the other for Auburn. Like most college football fans in the gridiron-crazed state of Alabama, theyre mortal enemies this week, as the No. 1 Crimson Tide prepares to play the No. 15 Tigers in Saturdays Iron Bowl at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Ive never met Tammy, but she really seems to be a sweet girl, said Phyllis Perkins, who is known as Phyllis from Mulga on the Paul Finebaum Show, which airs on the ESPN-owned SEC Network. But its Iron Bowl week, so I dont know about her. She can probably hurt me physically because shes younger than me. No, I take that back. If she hits me, her ass is grass. Among Finebaums legion of loyal and colorful callers, theres none more famous than Perkins, a two-time cancer survivor, and...
