    The battle to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond is 'wide open', according to MGM boss Pamela Abdy. Pamela, who serves as MGM's President of Motion Pictures, has revealed that the studio has had 'preliminary conversations' with 007 producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson about who will replace Daniel – who bowed out as Bond in the recent flick No Time To Die.  'It's wide open. We've had very early preliminary conversations with Barbara and Michael, but we wanted Daniel to have his last hurrah,' she told The Hollywood Reporter. Moving on: The battle to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond is 'wide open', according to MGM boss Pamela Abdy (Craig pictured September 2021) Idris Elba has been tipped as a potential 007 but it was recently reported that the Luther star was in 'early' talks to play a Bond villain.

    Three of the Ravens’ biggest pass plays this season have at least this much in common: No one bothered to guard the wide receiver running downfield. In Week 2, it was Marquise “Hollywood” Brown who was left unmarked as he ran a vertical route against the Kansas City Chiefs on a 42-yard jump-pass touchdown from quarterback Lamar Jackson. In Week 4, it was James Proche II who had an unbothered path across the field on a 32-yard catch-and-run to help put away the Denver Broncos in the fourth quarter. And on Sunday, it was Sammy Watkins whom the Chicago Bears forgot to pick up on a crucial 29-yard catch late in the fourth quarter, setting up running back Devonta Freeman’s go-ahead 3-yard touchdown run one play later. All three completions came on third down. All three came in the second half. And all three had a similar origin: with the wide-open wide receiver having started the play in a “bunch” formation to the quarterback’s right. Against Chicago, Tyler Huntley faced third-and-12 and a 13-9 deficit...
    Getty Taj Gibson defends Giannis Antetokounmpo. The New York Knicks got off to a fast start this season but have since cooled off significantly and some fans are left wondering where the team goes from here. After looking strong early on, Kemba Walker is turning into a bit of a question mark as his production with the team slips and Derrick Rose continues to remain a rock for the Knicks. There aren’t a lot of changes the Knicks can make and perhaps the most important thing they can do is just get healthy. The big men tandem of Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel hasn’t spent much time together as the two can never seem to be healthy at the same time. So far, both of them have been dealing with injuries to start the season. Perhaps that’s the reason why the defense has been rough so far, but the three-point defense has been shockingly bad. Take the recent game against the Milwaukee Bucks as an example.Knicks Aren’t Looking Good on D Per NBA tracking data, the Knicks allowed...
    GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — Officials from almost 200 nations worked through the night at the U.N. climate talks in Glasgow, trying to hammer out agreements on a range of tricky topics in time for a Friday deadline. Among the outstanding issues was international carbon trading, a subject that has nagged at negotiators since the landmark Paris climate accord was sealed in 2015. “We’re still at the stage of options,” a European negotiator told The Associated Press on Thursday. “But it’s moving forward. We still need that push though.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to be quoted. Fresh drafts of the documents on regulating international cooperation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including the carbon markets section, were released overnight, as were new proposals containing various options for assessing and tracking financial aid for developing countries. Poor nations have insisted they will not back any deal that fails to address their need for funds to help cut emissions and adapt to the consequences of global warming, a problem they have contributed least to. Negotiators were hoping...
    The Atlantic Coast Conference divisional races are far from decided and several schools still have a shot at winning the league crown. Virginia defensive lineman Mandy Alonso is enjoying the journey. “This is like what you train for and all season, you want to be in these positions,” Alonso said. “We put our team in a good enough position to have our goals in reach.” Virginia is not alone. Wake Forest remains the only unbeaten team in the Atlantic Division, but after allowing 330 rushing yards in its 58-55 loss to North Carolina, a Coastal Division foe, the No. 13 Demon Deacons may have exposed the blueprint to beat them. Coach Dave Clawson’s team (8-1, 5-0) still has to play North Carolina State (7-2, 4-1) and at Clemson (6-3, 5-2) — both still in the race for the division crown. “Big game ahead of us – I think everyone knows that,” Wake Forest offensive lineman Sean Maginn said this week. The No. 21 Wolfpack, 27-21 winners in double-overtime against Clemson earlier in the season, play in Winston-Salem on Saturday and...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs coach Andy Reid wouldn’t say Wednesday whether the reigning AFC champs were pursuing Odell Beckham Jr. Then again, he didn’t say they weren’t. Beckham became a free agent Tuesday after the wide receiver’s acrimonious split with the Browns, and the Chiefs — with star quarterback Patrick Mahomes — are among the destinations that he’s rumored to be considering. “That’s (Brett) Veach’s area. He looks at everybody,” Reid said of Kansas City’s aggressive general manager. “You guys know how he does it. I’ve been in a bunker trying to get my work done. I haven’t really talked to him.” The pairing would make sense, though. Beckham reportedly wants to spend the rest of the season with a contender, and the Chiefs have been to three straight conference title games and are trending up in the AFC West after a lousy start. Yet their offense has continued to struggle to live up to the lofty standards it has set over the years, and Beckham could provide the jolt that it needs. The Chiefs already have made...
    Prevea Health and Aaron Rodgers end partnership Deportees despair despite US-Mexico border reopening Michael Porter Jr. had what should have been an easy dunk on Saturday afternoon in the Denver Nuggets' 95-94 win over the Houston Rockets at Ball Arena. Or, at the very least, he could have passed it up to one of two teammates who were ahead of him on the breakaway play. Instead Porter Jr. delivered what should go down as the worst missed layup of the season.

    Michael Porter Jr. of the Denver Nuggets had a wide-open layup during Saturday’s game against Houston Rockets, and missed it. When you get a wide-open layup attempt as an NBA star, you have to make the most of it. Unfortunately for Michael Porter Jr. of the Denver Nuggets, he missed on that opportunity during Saturday’s game against the Houston Rockets. In the first quarter, Porter had a wide open lane to the basket and went to leap for what should have been an easy layup attempt. Instead, he completely bungled it and prevented an easy two points for the Nuggets.

    The Crane/Facebook The Wig Villa space at 575 Central Avenue in St. Petersburg has been empty for some time now, but the old storefront will undergo a complete makeover when steak and seafood restaurant The Crane opens out of the space early next year.  According to The Crane’s social media, local foodies can expect this new downtown heavy hitter by January 2022. Alongside fresh seafood and steak options, The Crane will also have a wide selection of craft cocktails to match its upscale, elegant decor.  According to I Love the Burg, like its newly-opened sister concept Mangosteen—located at 656 Central Ave.—The Crane will push cuisine that’s Asian-influenced, according to its hashtags on Instagram.

    Samantha Jones is not dead! That's what Sex and the City insiders tell DailyMail.com as they reveal Kim Cattrall's character is not being killed off, but instead her absence from the series is explained as having a falling out with Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie Bradshaw.  The insiders say the writers have left the plot open for Cattrall's return and are hoping she'll come back to reprise her role for Season 2. 'We'll announce eventually that the show will have a second season.

    Halfway through the NFL season, the NFC has five established contenders. Meanwhile, the AFC is more wide open than any conference in recent memory. Want to pick the AFC favorite? Grab paper, scissors and a hat. Through eight weeks, there’s no frontrunner. Hell, we barely know who the runners are. Entering the season, the Kansas City Chiefs were the odds-on favorites. That shifted around the start of October, when the high-flying Buffalo Bills outscored opponents by more than 100 points between Weeks 2-4, and then smashed Kansas City in Week 5. However, the Bills followed that win up by losing to the Tennessee Titans, who hammered the Chiefs six days later. During these stretches, the Los Angeles Chargers and Baltimore Ravens were both considered top dogs. This before the Chargers were crushed by the Ravens in Week 6, only to be handled 41-17 last week by the Cincinnati Bengals, who were the AFC’s top seed going into this weekend. Yes, the same Bengals who lost 34-31 to Mike White and the New York Jets yesterday. Got all that? Welcome to...
    KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Ty Gibbs upset the field again, racing to his fourth Xfinity Series victory of the season Saturday and stopping title contenders AJ Allmendinger and Austin Cindric from advancing to the championship round. Gibbs passed reigning champion Cindric with 10 laps remaining at Kansas Speedway and the 19-year-old cruised to yet another victory in his part-time Joe Gibbs Racing ride. The grandson of the Hall of Fame team owner needed only to start the ARCA Series race later Saturday to clinch that championship. He’ll be full-time in the Xfinity Series next season, but for now, he’s a roadblock for the championship contenders. Cindric finished second and Allmendinger was third. A playoff driver has yet to win in this round of the playoffs, so all four spots in the championship finale are wide open next weekend at Martinsville Speedway. A non-playoff driver again was a factor in the finish of playoff drivers. This time it was Sam Mayer, who triggered a crash that ruined the race for title contenders Harrison Burton and Noah...
    MCALLEN, Texas — The swarm of National Guard soldiers and state police that governors sent to guard the Texas-Mexico border earlier this summer is gone, leaving the border effectively unmanned with just 6% of the reinforcements left behind. “We used to have a National Guard posted there,” Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera told the Washington Examiner while driving along a dirt road that runs parallel with the border near the Hidalgo port of entry late one evening recently. “There was another one right over here, but they took that guy, too." Cabrera is the vice president of the Border Patrol union’s Rio Grande Valley chapter. On a 12-mile drive along roads that agents use to access the overgrown land along the Rio Grande, Cabrera points out a total of 11 spots where National Guard soldiers had been posted all summer. They manned mobile camera towers and could also call in sightings of illegal immigrants or drug smugglers attempting to sneak through the brush. Now, no one is keeping watch and Cabrera admits that agents, half of whom have been pulled...
    Drew Doughty needs a refresher going into his 13th NHL season. When he ran into Patrick Kane before training camps opened, it was the first time he had seen the Chicago star around a rink in almost two years. “I don’t even know who plays for what team anymore,” Doughty said, half-jokingly. After two pandemic-shortened seasons, including one limited to divisional play to keep the coronavirus at bay, the NHL is set to drop the puck on a full 82-game slate and stage the traditional 16-team playoff for the Stanley Cup. Now at 32 teams with the addition of the expansion Seattle Kraken and fans back in every building, hockey is ready to get back to normal. Opening night is Tuesday. “Can’t wait,” Doughty said. “Really just can’t wait.” Even Calgary’s Matthew Tkachuk agrees with his longtime nemesis. “Normal’s great,” Tkachuk said. “You don’t realize how much you miss it. … I’m excited to get back to the playing in front of fans. There’s nothing like it. That was so different. And as much as people say it’s just...
    THE LALIGA title race has been blown wide open after Real Madrid fell to a shock 2-1 defeat against Espanyol. Karim Benzema's late second half strike wasn't enough to defeat rescue a point or all three for Real. 3Espanyol pulled off a shock win defeating LaLiga title hopefuls RealCredit: GETTY IMAGES 3Real registered 20 shots in total with just four of them on targetCredit: GETTY IMAGES Los Blancos found themselves a goal behind after just 17 minutes after Espanyol striker Raul de Tomas clinically found the back of the net. The visitors dominated the ball but couldn't seem to find a breakthrough. And Aleix Vidal made them pay, scoring Espanyol's second of the afternoon, stunning the LaLiga leaders. Real eventually got a reward for their dominating display with main man Benzema doing it all on his own and finding the corner of the net. The Frenchman's goal takes his league tally to nine for the season, and when you add his seven assists into the equation, he's the most in-form player on the planet. Real had a chance...
    It took less than a month to dramatically change the look of the Atlantic Coast Conference race and likely knock the league out of the national-title hunt. Six-time reigning league champion and 25th-ranked Clemson has an early league loss against one of its top division challengers and two losses overall. North Carolina and Miami have gone from preseason top-15 teams to unranked. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM That leaves the ACC barely hanging on at the bottom of the Top 25 with No. 23 North Carolina State and No. 24 Wake Forest as the league’s highest-ranked teams. The race for the league title hasn’t been this wide open in the better part of a decade. "You can’t approach these games thinking one team’s automatically better than the others," Syracuse defensive end Josh Black said. "Whoever’s playing best this game is going to win. That’s why I think this year is so cool: there’s no top-front runner." Then again, while it adds drama, it has likely ended the league’s chances of returning to the College Football Playoff. The...
    Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden for his utter incompetence at the southern border, stating, “This is an invasion,” at a rally in Perry, Georgia, on September 25. Trump said: Joe Biden has thrown the border wide open and our country is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people every single month. Every month we have hundreds of thousands of people coming and we don’t even see the people that are really coming in, and I guarantee you they’re the worst of all.  The world is coming into our country. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. I used to say from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, but now it’s from many countries all over the world including the Middle East. They’re emptying their prisons into our country. We’re having people coming into our country that we do not want. The 45th President honed in on the crisis in Del Rio, Texas, stating, “Our country is being turned into a migrant camp.” He would add that “tens of thousands of illegal immigrants have overrun our borders in recent...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — McClatchy High School is getting a new look.

    The cybersecurity lawyer indicted this week by a grand jury in special counsel John Durham's investigation could end up being the "fall guy" for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign, warned a top House Republican. Rep. Devin Nunes , the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, told Newsmax on Thursday there is evidence of a broad Russia collusion conspiracy — allegations the congressman's team investigated and referred to the Justice Department . But, he cautioned the Clintons "have a long history of their lawyers and agents disappearing." Michael Sussmann, a former attorney from Perkins Coie, is accused of falsely telling the top FBI lawyer he had no clients when he was representing a technology executive and the Clinton campaign during a meeting on possible links between former President Donald Trump and Russia. Sussmann pleaded not guilty to a charge of lying to the FBI on Friday, with lawyers insisting he never said he didn't have clients and was representing only the technology executive.

    Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had tight end Darren Waller wide open, but he ignored him during Monday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Las Vegas Raiders began their quest to silence the critics this season, but they had a tough first test against the explosive offense of the Baltimore Ravens. To do so, they would need to keep up with them on offense. Unfortunately for the Raiders, they saw a great opportunity falter away into dust thanks to quarterback Derek Carr. In the first half, Carr hiked the ball and stood in the pocket looking downfield. The problem is that tight end Darren Waller was wide open on the right side of the field, and Carr did not even look his way, instead opting for a checkdown pass for a minimal gain. darren waller a bit too wide open to earn the derek carr target here pic.twitter.com/knzyUSKR2y — Austin Gayle (@PFF_AustinGayle) September 14, 2021 The one time Carr DOESNT throw it at Waller… pic.twitter.com/tswWDjaAFs — Pick Six Podcast (@picksixpod) September 14, 2021 Raiders: Derek Carr misses a...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Kyler Murray scored five touchdowns and linebacker Chandler Jones had a career-high five sacks as the Arizona Cardinals simply dominated the Tennessee Titans 38-13 Sunday for a big road win to open the season. Jones, who tied the franchise record, had three sacks in a first quarter so good LeBron James chimed in on social media for his Defensive Player of the Year candidacy. Jones, who wants a new contract, also forced two fumbles the Cardinals turned into 14 points. Murray tormented the Titans throwing for 289 yards with two TD passes apiece to All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Christian Kirk. Murray’s best pass came came early in the third quarter off his back foot to Kirk on a beautiful floater Kirk simply ran under. Arizona scored the first 17 points and moved the ball almost at will against Tennessee. Murray either bought time scrambling around until he could find an open receiver or just kept the ball. Murray was so wide open on a keeper he held the ball up almost...
    Seven of the 19 Islamic terrorists who hijacked commercial planes on September 11, 2001 and killed nearly 3,000 Americans were able to remain in the United States after overstaying their visas thanks to a wide open loophole that has yet to be closed. In total, all 19 terrorists arrived in the U.S. legally as 16 secured tourist visas and three obtained business and student visas. Eventually, the September 11 attacks they executed left thousands of Americans dead and more than 6,000 others injured. Seven of the 19 terrorists overstayed their visas either before the attacks or at the time of the attacks. Despite U.S. immigration law requiring their detainment and potential deportation, none were detained or deported. The seven terrorists who overstayed their visas include: Hani Hasan Hanjour of Saudi Arabia Nawaf al-Hamzi of Saudi Arabia Mohamed Atta of Egypt Satam al-Suqami of Saudi Arabia Waleed al-Shehri of Saudi Arabia Marwan al-Shehhi of the United Arab Emirates Ahmed al-Ghamdi of Saudi Arabia Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), said in a statement that...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — As we approach the 20th anniversary of 9/11, a local festival is honoring local heroes who helped that fateful day, putting the finishing touches on a photo exhibition about that day.

    Could Kris Bryant return to Wrigley Field in a home uniform someday? He hasn’t ruled it out just yet. Bryant’s return to Wrigley Field in rival colors is as emotional as it is bizarre, as the San Francisco Giants try to solidify their status in the NL West. The Giants currently have a 2.5 game lead over the second-place Los Angeles Dodgers. Yet, Bryant is the centerpiece of this series in Chicago, especially considering how things ended with the Cubs. Jed Hoyer and the Cubs front office refused to give Bryant what he believes he’s worth. Despite all of that, Bryant remains open to a return to the Cubs, whenever that opportunity presents itself.

    The Atlantic Coast Conference crown seems up for grabs after the league’s disappointing opening week performance. Its three preseason ranked teams all lost as the league went 7-7, a dent to a conference eager to show it's more than just Clemson at the top. The Tigers, who started at No. 3, fell to No. 2 Georgia 10-3. North Carolina, ranked 10th last week, and de facto No. 1 overall NFL draft pick in quarterback Sam Howell, struggled to generate points in a 17-10 loss at Virginia Tech.

The 28-year-old England captain has been widely linked with a move to Manchester City until posting a statement on Wednesday that confirmed he would be staying in North London. And speaking to talkSPORT, the former Spurs manager said: "If he [Kane] went to Man City, I think they would’ve been nailed on for the title.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported a whopping 188,829 southwest land border encounters for the month of June. A court filing last week noted that according to preliminary data, CBP probably encountered around 210,000 people in July. "These numbers are appalling and are a direct result of the Biden Administration's weak border policies and your lackluster performance as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. DHS's mission is 'with honor and integrity, we will safeguard the American people, our homeland, and our values.' Frankly, you are not fulfilling that mission," the letter stated. The lawmakers sought various pieces of information, including a tally of migrants who illegally entered the country and got taken into CBP custody since Jan. 20, the amount of federal funds obligated or spent in connection with caring for migrants who illegally entered the U.S. since that date, and more. Jan. 20 is the date that President Biden was inaugurated as the 46th U.S. president.

Favorites: USC and Oregon A wide-open conference race means there is no dominant team, and that’s the case again this year in the Pac-12. Five teams will set the pace — Oregon (5/2 at BetMGM), Washington (7/2), USC (4/1), Arizona State (4/1) and Utah (6/1), according to the BetMGM odds board — with UCLA chasing as a 12/1 long shot. USC is the obvious favorite in the South, and the North is a coin flip between Oregon and Washington. Trojans quarterback Kedon Slovis is the conference’s top Heisman Trophy candidate (28/1) after totaling 47 touchdown passes in two seasons. USC coach Clay Helton has underachieved with an 18-13 record the last three seasons, and he was lucky to go 5-1 last year, when Slovis...
    Bears can’t pick locks. Officials in Colorado issued a warning on Twitter reminding people to lock their doors and windows (both for their cars and homes). This came after a bear apparently went door-to-door and opened multiple car doors in one night. While the bear wasn’t caught in the act, a wildlife official found eight cars with their doors wide open and signs of rummaging. (CPW NE Region) The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department’s Northeast Region posted about the incident to Twitter, which occurred in the town of Estes Park, on Twitter. While the bear wasn’t caught in the act, a wildlife official found eight cars with their doors wide open and signs of rummaging. All of the vehicles were unlocked. FOX ROUTINELY STEALS MAN'S NEWSPAPER FOR 6 WEEKS: REPORT According to the CPW, bears won’t just go after cars that have food or other attractants inside them. Instead, they will actually go car-to-car, checking all of the doors to see if they’ll open. Several photos were uploaded to the social media site that show several cars sitting...

    Naomi Osaka is getting a lot of support from some of her famous fans and fellow athletes. The tennis star announced on Monday that she would not be competing in the French Open, and candidly opened up about her struggles with depression and social anxiety. "The truth is that I have suffered long bouts of depression since the US Open in 2018 and I have had a really hard time coping with that," Osaka shared in a statement posted to social media. Osaka previously made headlines last Wednesday when she announced she would not be participating in press conferences at the French Open, which began on Sunday. She wrote at the time that she believed the practice to be harmful to athletes' mental health. Osaka wrote on Monday that she's always dealt with social anxiety, which is often exacerbated in situations like press conferences. She explained that she was already feeling "vulnerable and anxious" and viewed skipping press conferences as an act of "self-care." In response to her announcement, many athletes and others took to social media to address her...
    During an interview on "Fox & Friends First" on Monday, Homan criticized the Biden administration for having "released hundreds of COVID-positive people into the interior." "The northern border we have with Canada is still closed because of COVID and the southern border is wide open. And you're right, I mean, ICE already had 7,500 positive COVID cases run through their system. Right now, as we're speaking, they have nearly 1,200 active cases in custody right now that came across that border. And what really scares me is that nearly 300,000 got away this year," Homan said. The White House announced Monday that existing coronavirus travel restrictions will remain in place because of surging COVID-19 cases caused by the Delta variant. "We will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point for a few reasons. The more transmissible Delta variant is spreading both here and around the world. Driven by the Delta variant, cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated and appear likely to continue in the weeks ahead," press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters...
    Retired acting ICE director and Fox News contributor Tom Homan slammed President Biden for allowing the U.S. border to remain "wide open" while urging Americans to continue holding themselves "accountable to COVID." Homan told "Fox & Friends First," Monday, the act of having "released hundreds of COVID-positive people into the interior" shows "incompetence at the highest level" from the Biden administration.  TOM HOMAN PERSONALLY ‘DISGUSTED’ WITH MOUNTING BORDER CHAOS, WARNS ICE MORALE IS ‘IN THE TOILET’  TOM HOMAN: The northern border we have with Canada is still closed because of COVID and the southern border is wide open. And you're right, I mean, ICE already had 7,500 positive COVID cases run through their system. Right now, as we're speaking, they have nearly 1,200 active cases in custody right now that came across that border. And what really scares me is that nearly 300,000 got away this year.  Those who escaped border apprehension, how many of them had COVID? And we already know the US government on purpose has released hundreds of COVID-positive people into the interior by either a bus...
    DENVER, Colo. (CBS4) – The Denver cannabis company MedPharm can now ramp up its research into the effects marijuana has on Alzheimer’s disease. It’s possible because of a new Schedule I Researcher License granted by the Drug Enforcement Administration. (credit: CBS) “We’re interested in how cannabinoids affect the nervous system, the brain, and in in particular, we’re very interested in Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Tyrell Towle, director of chemistry and extraction at MedPharm. READ MORE: Deadly Flash Flood Happens Without Notice In Larimer County, Resident Never Would Have Believed It According to Towle, MedPharm’s researchers hope to find whether cannabinoids can treat symptoms or even prevent the disease. Until now, research could only be done under state and city research licenses, he said. (credit: CBS) “When you’re talking about wanting to do an actual clinical trial, you need a diversity of people that participate and one state just does not have the diversity of people that are required,” Towle said. The new DEA research license will now change that. MedPharm says will soon be able to ship investigational medications over state...
    Megan Fox: I Stopped Drinking Alcohol After Making Belligerent Comments at 2009 Golden Globes 10 Investing Tips for an Inflationary Market © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Tom Brady will play until he’s 45. Unless he doesn’t. The guy who used to say “10 more years” when asked about the intended duration of his football career at some point within the last 10 years changed his target to 45. In a SiriusXM town hall with Jim Gray, Brady talked about playing football at an advanced age. “You’ve passed your physical prime, absolutely,” Brady said. “I believe that I sustained it for a long period of time. But I don’t see me now — and there wouldn’t be a reason to like improve let’s say my arm strength or the distance I can throw a ball or the speed I can run physically. It is what it is. It’s just, I’ve actually maintained that for a long period of time through a lot of unique thoughts and my workout, my recovery,...
    TOKYO (AP) — The Tokyo Olympics open Friday and predicting the overall medal count will be more difficult than usual because of the pandemic and the absence of many qualifying events over the last year. In one forecast done by Gracenote, which supplies statistical analysis to sports leagues around the world, the United States is picked to win the most overall medals. The Americans are also picked to win the most gold medals. After that, the picking gets more difficult. China is probably the next choice but many athletes from the country have appeared in few international events since the pandemic. This makes predictions difficult since Gracenote’s calculations are based on the most recent performances in top level events like world championships and so forth. A team from Russia, host nation Japan and Britain are expected to be among the top five. “This Olympics is even more unpredictable than usual,” Simon Gleave, the head of sports analysis at Gracenote, wrote in an email to The Associated Press. “Many events were canceled in 2020 and although they have been replaced...
    LINE of Duty star Daniel Mays has dropped a HUGE hint for season 7 - as he's convinced 'H' is yet to be revealed. While the highly anticipated finale aired back in May, seeing Detective Superintendent Ian Buckells outed as the fourth man, fans weren't convinced by the controversial ending. 5Daniel Mays has dropped a huge hint over what could happen in series 7Credit: ITV It appears actor Daniel, 43, who played Danny Waldron in the third series, agrees - admitting he thinks Marcus Thurlwell could still be alive. Dodgy detective Marcus, played by James Nesbitt, was heavily involved in series three, and was introduced midway through the sixth series of Line of Duty. He was involved in two cases that murdered journalist Gail Vella was looking into - Lawrence Christopher's death and the killing of Oliver Stephens Lloyd. While Marcus never appeared on screen in person, he frequently featured as a menacing headshot as well as in holiday photographs. 5Daniel played police officer Danny Waldron in the seriesCredit: BBC/World Productions/Steffan Hill/Mikel Gascon When AC-12 arranged for the...
    Rep. Elise Stefanik and Sen. Steve Daines on Thursday plan to introduce a bill to force Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to begin reopening the U.S.-Canada border after more than a year of international travel being essentially cut off due to the coronavirus pandemic.  The "Restoring Northern Border Travel Act," first obtained by Fox News, comes as coronavirus cases in both countries drop steeply and vaccination rates are increasing. It also follows months of agitation from Stefanik, R-N.Y., Daines, R-Mont., and several other members of Congress who represent northern states and districts to reopen the economically important border.  "It is unacceptable that President Biden continues to ignore the needs of Montanans and keep the northern border closed while supporting the southern border being wide open to a surge of illegal immigrants and a flood of illegal drugs into our Montana communities," Daines said in a statement about the bill.  The southern border is not, in fact, any more open for legal commerce or travel than the U.S.-Canada border — both are still closed to non-essential travel. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) earlier this month extended...
    Brooklyn Borough President and former police officer Eric Adams remains the frontrunner among eight Democrats seeking to be New York City’s next mayor, a Monday poll showed. Adams was the top choice for 28% of New Yorkers, the Ipsos poll showed, while former presidential candidate Andrew Yang came in second with 20% and NYC sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia stood in third with 15%. Tuesday’s election will be the first in the state to use ranked-choice voting, meaning the outcome is far from certain. Though Adams leads, his support stands well below the 50% needed for him to win outright, and any early lead could evaporate if voters who do not support him rank him toward the bottom of the field. Polls have shown all three candidates leading at different points in the race, and Yang and Garcia have even campaigned together in recent days in a joint attempt to blunt Adams’ momentum. Andrew Yang and Kathryn Garcia campaign in NYC’s Chinatown on Sunday. (Kena Betancur/Getty Images) Ipsos’ poll attempted to account for the ranked choice voting system’s possible outcomes, projecting...
    Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is leading the field of Democrats vying to become New York City’s next mayor ahead of Tuesday’s primary, but ranked-choice voting means the race is far from decided.  A new Ipsos poll released on Monday found Adams as the top choice for 28 percent of New Yorkers, while former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew YangAndrew YangThe Memo: The center strikes back Yang, Garcia campaign together three days before NYC mayoral primary Adams, Wiley lead field in NYC mayoral primary: poll MORE comes in second place with 20 percent support.  While those numbers bode well for Adams, it’s still well below the 50-percent threshold needed to win the nomination outright. And given the city’s new ranked-choice voting system, which allows voters to rank candidates by preference, other contenders will have a chance to pull ahead.  The Ipsos poll simulated the effects that ranked-choice voting could have on the contest, projecting that the primary could go to a seventh round of counting before a winner is declared.  In that scenario, the vote could come down to a head-to-head...
    Getty Running back Kylin Hill #8 of the Mississippi State Bulldogs celebrates with quarterback Tommy Stevens #7 after scoring a touchdown during the third quarter of their game against the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns at Mercedes Benz Superdome on August 31, 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon are poised to give the Green Bay Packers lightning and thunder out of the backfield in 2021, but seventh-round rookie Kylin Hill could still make things interesting for fans in the preseason. As running backs coach Ben Sirmans made clear during mandatory minicamp earlier this month, the Packers will head into next month’s training camp with the third spot in their rushing rotation “wide open” behind Jones and Dillon. That means Hill will have an opportunity to compete with 2019 sixth-rounder Dexter Williams and second-year Patrick Taylor for a spot on Green Bay’s initial 53-man roster in 2021. Here’s what Sirmans told reporters on June 3 about the upcoming position battle: “I already told the guys that, as of right now, you look at it as though your...
    Getty Avonte Maddox and Rodney McLeod celebrate a pass breakup for the Philadelphia Eagles. There are no specific skillsets or physical measurements hanging on job descriptions this season for the Philadelphia Eagles. The new coaching staff is looking for the “best man” at every position and they’ll find that out through heated competitions up and down the roster. The starting quarterback isn’t immune to it. Neither is the vacancy at left tackle or tight end. Perhaps the most important battle of the summer will take place in the secondary as the Eagles look for a starting cornerback to pair with Darius Slay. That job belonged to Avonte Maddox last year and he’ll get the first crack at keeping it. But nothing is guaranteed and the competition will be fierce, according to new defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson. It’s his responsibility to draw the talent out of every player in the secondary. “It’s an open competition, whoever comes in and puts it all together, that’s who you’re going to see out there on Sundays,” Wilson told reporters. “Right now,...
    RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas — Most of the $2 billion that Congress set aside for 110 miles of wall and technology in the busiest region of the U.S.-Mexico border sits in the bank unspent as thousands of migrants illegally cross each day. Eighty-nine miles of the project is unfinished, along the winding Rio Grande River that divides the two countries. While President Joe Biden’s administration shut down wall construction funded through diversions from the Trump administration, the project was approved and funded by the House and Senate. Besides this section, most of the wall projects funded by Congress during the Trump administration have been completed. A senior Border Patrol agent who oversees wall construction in the region said the project costs about $20 million a mile, and it is not clear why the final 89-mile stretch has been stalled or who will make the final call on whether to spend the money. “We work for the government. We work for the Department of Homeland Security, so the secretary,” the official said, who was only able to speak anonymously with the...
    Celebrity Kids at Prom Can a business require proof of vaccination for COVID-19? The Buffalo Sabres are on the clock. Again. For the second time in the last four years, the Sabres hold the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft after winning the 2021 NHL Draft Lottery on Wednesday. It's not overly surprising in that Buffalo held the best odds (16.6 percent), of retaining the top selection in the 2021 NHL Draft. In fact, after the night-time draw, the only change in the draft order was the NHL's newest club, the Seattle Kraken, leapfrogging over the Anaheim Ducks for the No. 2 pick.  MORE: FCHockey's spring ranking for the 2021 NHL Draft The 2021 draft is scheduled for July 23-24. The first round of the draft will be held Friday night, with rounds 2-7 on Saturday. Barring any trades, the top-16 draft order (top 15 in the first round) in the 2021 NHL Draft is now set. As the Stanley Cup playoffs are still underway, the bottom 16 is still up in the air. With the results of the playoffs predicted...
