Miranda Kerr pictures: Supermodel is looking unbelievable lately

April 3, 2014 – 5:15 am by Ryan Phillips

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr has always been a big favorite around these parts, and for good reason. The 30-year-old Australian supermodel is stunningly gorgeous but also manages to have a bit of that “cute” thing going on as well. But recently she’s looked better than ever. Since splitting from husband Orlando Bloom, Ms. Kerr has been out and about and looking unbelievable. The single life definitely agrees with her.

We figured we’d share just what we’re talking about with the following pictures of some of her very recent appearances. Enjoy this slideshow of one of our favorites.

Brian Wilson to disabled list with injured elbow

April 2, 2014 – 3:12 am by Ryan Phillips

Brian Wilson

Brian Wilson was absolutely hammered by the San Diego Padres on Sunday night and his implosion cost the Los Angeles Dodgers a win in their first game on American soil this season. But it turns out that the world’s strangest reliever has actually been dealing with elbow issues for a few weeks now, and heĀ landed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday as a result.

Wilson underwent an MRI on Tuesday that showed no ligament damage in his right elbow. He has already undergone Tommy John surgery on his pitching elbow twice, but at this point it does not appear he’ll need surgery again. The Dodgers apparently were worried about Wilson as early as March 10, when he experienced discomfort following a Cactus League game. That concerned obviously intensified after his brutal outing in San Diego.

Can baseball return to Montreal?

Baseball season opens in multiple cities today. But the final weekend of spring training opened the door to an intriguing possibility: Can Montreal become one of those cities once again?

The Blue Jays and Mets played a two-game exhibition series at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium in their final tuneup before the regular season, and the result was unlike anything that has been seen inside the Big O’s hermetically sealed atmosphere since 1994: legitimate excitement for baseball.

The two-game set drew a total attendance over 96,000, which is what the Expos would consider a good nine-game homestand in their final years before departing for Washington. But it seems Montrealers have rekindled the love for a sport they haven’t seen live in 10 (holy crap, has it really been that long?) years.

Even watching on TV, it was hard not to get goosebumps watching the crowd react as if they were watching a game in October rather than March. And baseball has noticed.

Shaka Smart officially turns down Marquette

March 28, 2014 – 2:56 am by Ryan Phillips

Shaka Smart

On Thursday night, Marquette finally got its answer from Shaka Smart, and it wasn’t the one the school was hoping for. Smart called Marquette Thursday to officially turn down the school’s head basketball coaching job and he will return to Virginia Commonwealth next season.

Former Marquette coach Buzz Williams bolted for Virginia Tech last week and the Golden Eagles quickly identified Smart, a Wisconsin native, as his possible successor. The 36-year-old coach was reportedly offered a very lucrative deal but ultimately opted to remain at VCU.

NCAA Tournament East Regional ticket prices skyrocket

March 27, 2014 – 3:19 am by Ryan Phillips

Shabazz Napier

New York is going crazy for March Madness. Madison Square Garden will host the East Regional of the NCAA Tournament on Friday and Sunday, and as of Wednesday night ticket prices were going through the roof.

The median price paid on StubHub for a full set of Sweet 16 and Elite Eight tickets at MSG is currently $500. That price also includes tickets purchased before the matchups were set, which means the true current price is certainly much higher.

Los Angeles Dodgers have baseball’s biggest payroll

March 25, 2014 – 10:08 pm by Ryan Phillips

Zack Greinke

The New York Yankees had owned baseball’s biggest payroll in each of the past 15 seasons. That streak ended on Tuesday, as the Los Angeles Dodgers and their projected payroll of $235 million topped all of Major League Baseball.

The last time the Yankees weren’t atop the payroll rankings was way back in 1998. This year they came in a distant second at $208 million, while the Philadelphia Phillies ($180 million), Boston Red Sox ($163 million) and Detroit Tigers ($162 million) rounded out the top five.
