Altidore scored twice in a three-minute span of the second half, Sacha Kljestan and Paul Arriola had goals and the United States beat Trinidad and Tobago 4-0 on Tuesday night to reach the final round of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
The NFL season kicks off on Thursday and Sports Illustrated is finalizing their NFL Preview with four regional covers of four up-and-coming NFL stars. One of the covers on this week’s magazine is Houston Texans wide receiver, DeAndre Hopkins.
When you dominate in your opening game 69-17 you are allowed to blow off a little steam. The Texas Tech Red Raiders decided to throw themselves a little personal WWE Monday Night Raw show after practice on Labor Day. With one of the coaches (we think Strength and Conditioning coach Rusty Whitt) acting as the ring announcer a couple big time wrestlers (we’re guessing graduate assistants) came down from the stands.
It’s too early and too much can happen to really know if this will happen, but everyone will start talking about the Cougars and their chances of being a team that breaks up the dance between the big boys. Since the conversation is going to happen, we thought we’d look at what it will take to get the University of Houston a chance to play for the National Championship, something that is a very possible now.
It is not a sure sign that Duane Brown will play in week 1 against the Chicago Bears, but it does indicate that the Houston Texans think their Pro Bowl left tackle will be healthy soon. SportsRadio 610’s John McClain is reporting the Texans are not expecting to put Brown on the physically unable to perform list.
The Houston Texans went up to Dallas on Thursday night and for Keith Mumphery the 28-17 win might have just secured the second-year wide out’s spot on the roster. But while Mumphery’s game was solid, he won the heart of the Internet with his expression that was captured during his 64-yard touchdown catch and run.
One of the big battles of the evening was for the final running back spot. Tyler Ervin, the rookie 4th round pick, and free agent signee Lamar Miller are locks to have a spot on the roster. That leaves Alfred Blue, Akeem Hunt, Kenny Hilliard and Jonathan Grimes along with fullback Jay Prosch were fighting for the final few spots in the backfield.
It’s that time of year again. Everyone will be gathering this weekend to pick their fantasy football teams. (If you’re like me and draft with a teacher as commissioner you have to draft in mid-August and it sucks). But one thing that can help your team, even if you draft poorly, is having a solid team name.
That is one way to try and get a runner out (knocked out). Lim Chang-yong of the Korean Baseball Organization’s KIA Tigers tried to pick of Oh Jae-won on second base and instead of throwing it to his shortstop or second baseman, threw the ball at the Doosan Bears’ runner’s head.
Tweets from Vikings practice say Bridgewater went down and it appeared to be a knee injury. Players were praying and an ambulance was called, but no confirmation it was for Bridgewater. The team ended the practice immediately.
