There are no two ways about it: Chelsea Football Club has had an all-time great transfer window. Club director Marina Granovskaia has managed to sign Timo Werner and Kai Havertz-Germany's two hottest commodities-in addition to Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, and Malang Sarr. All told, Roman Abramovich has shelled out roughly £200 million in...
When the 2019 Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham kicked off, I wasn't jammed into a sports bar downing beers with hundreds of other soccer-mad Americans, as I had originally planned to be.
If you've ever watched professional soccer with a hardcore fan, you've likely experienced that odd moment when your viewing partner applauds a play that, to the casual eye, seems completely innocuous. It happens once or twice each match, often when a player dwells on the ball and draws in a defender or two before delivering a simple pass to a teammate.
The Washington Wizards' season should've been over the moment John Wall elected to have surgery on the nagging bone spurs in his left heel. It really should've been. Wall has been the franchise's catalyst since entering the league in 2010, handling a herculean workload and a near monopoly over playmaking duties.
For years, NBA general managers looked at Jeff Green and imagined what he could be. Standing 6'9" with elite athleticism, budding isolation skills, a smooth-enough shot, and the ability to play either forward position, the Georgetown product had every tool.

Twenty minutes into France's 4-3 victory over Argentina in the World Cup round of 16, restarted play with a long ball from deep in his own half. He hit the ball with so much venom, and it flew so high, that I didn't think it had an intended recipient.
The value of Bitcoin has increased by roughly 300% over the past six months. Household name corporations-such as PayPal, Square, and Tesla-are noted cryptocurrency devotees, and prominent analysts expect crypto to attract even greater attention over the coming years. Essentially any company that exchanges large amounts of currency needs to be prepared to discuss cryptocurrency.
After the University of Alabama announced a 500-case outbreak of COVID-19-now well over 1,000-President Dr. Stuart Bell called the news "unacceptable" in a stern campus-wide message. "Those who blatantly disregard the rules will not be given the option of jeopardizing the semester for everyone else," he wrote in a later note.
One of the most unexpected entrants into the 2020 U.S. political maelstrom has been The Lincoln Project. Founded by a group of veteran Republican operatives, the organization has aired viral ads attacking Donald Trump-ostensibly a member of their own party-and garnered coverage in the nation's largest publications.
