Bayern Munich Earn Champions League Final with Victory over Real Madrid: Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will miss a chance to face his old squad and Bayern Munich's Jupp Heynckes gets revenge on the team that fired him despite winning the Champion's League title in 1998. Bayern Munich goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, played a major part, saving Real's first two penalties - from Ronaldo and Kaka. Sergio Ramos's missed effort is thought to be somewhere in low orbit. Bayern Munich will probably be favoured as the pre-selected "neutral" ground will in fact be their home stadium. Plus Chelsea will be without many starters due to accumulated yellow cards and the idiocy of their captain, John Terry.

Pat McAfee: MLK Day Reminds Me I Was Cancelled

George Michael Sports Machine My local guy growing up. Had a phone line we would call to get sports scores. Sucked when you came in just after the score you wanted was read and you had to wait for it to loop around.

Bill Belichick Leaving Patriots After 24 Seasons

beaverboard, according to this ESPN article, "The Patriots were able to forgo the standard NFL hiring process and immediately hire Mayo because they established a succession plan in the contract extension he signed last offseason, similar to what the Baltimore Ravens did with their general manager position when Eric DeCosta succeeded Ozzie Newsome in 2019."

Is there a racially motivated quarterback controversy brewing in Washington?

Yup. Bayless, Cowherd, and Smith are the main reasons I no longer watch ESPN.

That and the ADD way they report the sports news.
