U.S. Travel Restrictions Would Damage 2026 World Cup Bid, UEFA President Says

26-02-2017

“It is the same for the fans, and the journalists, of course. It is the World Cup. They should be able to attend the event, whatever their nationality is. But let’s hope that it does not happen.” Mr. Ceferin’s warning is significant; in addition to his position leading European soccer, he is a vice president of FIFA, world soccer’s governing body and the organizer of the World Cup. Bids for the 2026 tournament must be... Read more

Credit Chuck Burton/Associated Press DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Kurt Busch won his first Daytona 500 on Sunday, using a final-lap pass to prevail on an afternoon that was more survival of the fittest than a contest of the fastest. The race, Nascar ’s biggest showpiece and its season-opening event, was... Read more

Rickie Fowler Weathers a Storm to Win the Honda Classic

26-02-2017

At the turn, Fowler’s longtime caddie, Joe Skovron, reminded Fowler that with his near-flawless play during the first three days, he had given himself the wiggle room for an imperfect finish. “Hey, you just played your worst nine holes all week,” Skovron said he told Fowler, “and you’re still in control of the tournament.” Fowler dresses in colorful attire, including creamsicle orange on Sunday, but his emotions rarely stand out. Skovron said that one of... Read more

For Mets’ Infield, Chiropractor May Be the Most Important Position

26-02-2017

After experiencing what he said was a pain-free off-season, Duda reported feeling spasms in his back late last week. The pressure had an adverse effect on his hips, and he received a cortisone shot on each side Friday. “So we’ll take a few days now instead of two weeks down the road,” Duda said. “Just being cautious.” That should be the Mets’ motto all year. Although baseball players put repeated strain on their core when... Read more

For Navajo Team, a Season of Change and Challenge

26-02-2017

Cooper Burbank is the youngest Chinle player, a preternaturally calm and talented freshman who deals with his own dislocation. He grew up in the red mesa northlands and attended a postage-stamp-size middle school of 108 students. His parents — his mom is a teacher and his father a custodian — wanted him to attend a bigger school, with more course offerings, to prepare for college. So they took a hard swallow and left grandmother and... Read more

On Baseball: The Time Rajai Davis Became a World Series Star, but Not Quite a Hero

26-02-2017

Davis did not end last season as a World Series champion. His Cleveland Indians lost Game 7 to the Chicago Cubs, 8-7, in 10 innings. But his two-run, game-tying homer off Aroldis Chapman, a sizzler down the left-field line in the eighth inning, sent Cleveland into delirium and made the game a classic. With one unlikely swing — and his own tongue-wagging, gleeful trip home — Davis became an enduring example of baseball at its... Read more

Knicks 110, 76ers 109: After Knicks Blow Big Lead, Carmelo Anthony Jumper Subdues 76ers

25-02-2017

Carmelo Anthony hit a game-winning step-back jump shot along the baseline with 0.3 of a second remaining to push the Knicks past the Sixers and avoid a calamitous loss. The Knicks squandered a 17-point third quarter lead that was uncomfortably reminiscent of an earlier ignominy, when they blew a double-digit lead in Philadelphia last month and lost on a buzzer-beater by T. J. McConnell. The Sixers took a 109-108 lead with nine seconds remaining on... Read more

LUCIE, Fla. — The Mets had targeted Saturday’s game, their first home contest of spring training, as an opportunity for most of their regular position players to take the field together. Even the often-injured third baseman David Wright, whose throwing has lagged behind his hitting during his... Read more

Mayfield was booked into jail after running away from an officer, who tackled him, the police said. A preliminary police report said that Mayfield was intoxicated and told an officer he was trying to break up an altercation, and that he later “was yelling profanities and causing a scene” while the officer questioned another...
