9 college basketball stories that didn’t get the ending

Basketball(NBA, College ,High School)

For the first time since its inception in 1939, there will be no NCAA tournament this season. The threat of the coronavirus pandemic has canceled March Madness just as the major conference tournaments were beginning to kick off. There will be no Selection Sunday, no bracket pools, no One Shining Moment. It was a correct and necessary call, but one that still leaves so many college basketball stories unfinished.

It’s the stories that keep us coming back to college basketball. In what was considered a wide open year from the very start, so many teams and fanbases could have experienced the thrill of a deep run through the tournament. As the tournament has been canceled, we can’t help but wonder about all the stories that will never get the endings they deserve.

These are the college ba...

Will Kyle Busch or Kevin Harvick have the last laugh

Car Racing(Nascar,Monster truck, Indianapolis 500,Drag racing, horse racing )

The truck bounty makes a cool story and will undoubtedly add excitement to the truck race Saturday afternoon at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The only potential issue? Things going overboard on the track (someone taking out Kyle Busch) or off the track (NASCAR having to put an end to bounties).

More on that later. But first, the backstory: Kevin Harvick got upset when Kyle Larson tweeted a series of cherry emojis following a Kyle Busch victory three weeks ago at Las Vegas, insinuating that Busch was cherry-picking the field. So Harvick offered $50,000 to any full-time Cup points-earning driver who could go out there and finish ahead of Busch. Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis, whose company is the series sponsor through its Gander RV & Outdoors brand, pledged another $50,000.

The 10 worst NFL free agency contracts

Football (NFL,High School,College )

NFL teams enter free agency every year knowing the inevitability: If the team wants to sign a player to a top-market deal, the team will overpay for that player. The risk-reward game is played annually.

For some signings over the last decade, the risks did not outweigh the rewards enough to prevent teams from making costly mistakes on the open market. In those cases, “overpaid” became an understatement.

Here are the 10 worst NFL free agency signings of the last 10 years. (All contract figures courtesy of Over The Cap.)

Football (NFL,High School,College )

The Super Bowl is played in February. The road to get there begins in March.

Both options will provide plenty of relief. This offseason is host to a banner crop of quarterbacks, but is also rich in pass rushers, defensive backs, and offensive linemen...

He was great player whom was not a person that would just set a round an except thing to come to him or thing to knock  on his front door to say her you are.

Car Racing(Nascar,Monster truck, Indianapolis 500,Drag racing, horse racing )

A busy first month for NASCAR came to a close with a three-race West Coast swing marked by both a surprise appearance from injured driver Ryan Newman and a successful preview of the rules package that will decide this year’s Cup Series champion.

Attention has been fixed on the sport since Newman’s terrifying accident on the final lap of the Daytona 500 last month raised questions about the safety of the sport and the sanity of its competitors.

What initially appeared to be NASCAR’s first fatality in a Cup race since Dale Earnhardt was killed in the 2001 Daytona 500 instead was what Newman called “a miracle.” He walked out of a Florida hospital less than 48 hours later and made the trek to Phoenix last weekend to support his Roush Fenway Racing team.

Newman’s crash brought new ...

Carmelo Anthony

Carmelo going to the Portland Trail Blazers to pay one or two years before he retires from the NBA.

He is at the age of thirty five, and almost over the hill or not paying any more on the court. Most old top plyers can play there prime, with out getting injured or heart for weeks or mouths. Setting on the bunch instead of paying on the court with his team mates.

He can score points but when he gets physical with other player, he makes that person get physical to. When that happens something just gives, and in his case a hand, arm, leg or ankle becomes injurer at his age. It all most like if you touch him he’s coming out the game to set on the bunch for a good wild.

This man been out the game for almost a year, having to go back on the court, his legs, and conditioning play a big part...
