Pimpgate 2011 and the return of Jered Weaver

You remember what happened when Jered Weaver faced the Tigers at Comerica in 2011, right? Let's relive that a bit, shall we? In the grand scheme of things, July of 2011 wasn't really that long ago, and yet it also seems like it was forever ago - like, at least three years. That was when Jered Weaver got into a bit of a scuffle with Magglio Ordonez, Carlos Guillen, Alex Avila, and the Tigers fanbase at large. As Weaver prepares to face the Tigers again for only the second time since Pimpgate 2011, let's walk down memory lane and recall the events. Magglio Ordonez took Weaver deep in the...

It was the key moment of Game 1. Jarome Iginla fired a centering pass to Milan Lucic with just over three minutes left in regulation. Lucic got a clean piece of the puck for a redirect on Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard. It appeared to be the perfect pass and perfect chance in a game [...]

Corey Potter and Anddrej Meszaros impress in Game 1 loss

Corey Potter and Andrej Meszaros woke up this morning unaware if they’d be watching the start of the Bruins’ playoff high above the rink where the media and inactive players sit. When they got to the TD Garden, however, both defensemen learned they’d be in the Game 1 lineup against the Detroit Red Wings.Mixing and matching your defensive pairings in the playoffs is never ideal, but after the Bruins were dealt a 1-0 loss to Red Wings tonight, the play of the team’s defense turned out to be a silver lining.

Red Wings follow the plan and steal Game 1 from Bruins

Stealing a game in Boston is what it was all about for the Red Wings, heading into a series against the President's Cup winners as almost an afterthought in the playoffs and big underdogs against the Bruins. One-third of the Wings' forwards were playing in their first playoff game, and their defense is young, too. But the Red Wings were undaunted.

Seahawks officially announce signing of Sidney Rice

This is sort of a clerical thing, as the Seahawks announced on Tuesday they had agreed to terms with receiver Sidney Rice. Today, they announced that Rice officially put pen to paper, signing his contract for the 2014 season. We're still waiting to see the exact details of Rice's contract. But speculation was that the base would likely not be much above the minimum for an eight-year veteran, which is $855,000, and instead heavily laden with incentives. For now, what we know for sure is Rice is officially back in the fold for 2014.
