    THE Champions League final could be held in New York in Uefa’s dramatic revamp. European chiefs want to agree the new 36-team model for their biggest prize will run for at least nine seasons from 2024. 1The Champions League final could take place in New York in a major overhaul from Uefa And as part of the pitch to potential sponsors, Uefa is suggesting that the showpiece event could take 'Old Big Ears' to the Big Apple. President Aleksander Ceferin floated the prospect of the Champions League final being taken out of Europe shortly after his election in 2016. He said: “I think it might be an idea in the future but we have to speak about it. “To go from Portugal to Azerbaijan, for example, is almost the same as if you go to New York. For the fans it’s no problem.” Ceferin subsequently rowed back from the idea...

    A Michigan man who heroically saved his sister from being slain by a serial killer who brutally murdered four women in the late 1970s is speaking out about the traumatic ordeal a year before the man known as ‘Mid-Michigan’s Ted Buny’ becomes eligible for parole. Randy Gilbert was a 13-year-old boy living in his family home in the Eaton County town of Delta Township in August 1978. When he came home, he found Donald Eugene Miller, a 23-year-old from East Lansing, violently raping his sister, Lisa Gilbert, who was just 14 years old at the time.

    A closely-watched congressional district in southwestern Pennsylvania could be a bellwether for whether President Trump wins a second term on Nov. 3. The 17th congressional district encompasses Beaver County and parts of Allegheny and Butler counties. Beaver and Butler counties backed Trump in 2016. Allegeheny County, which includes the city of Pittsburgh, went for Hillary Clinton.  In 2018, the Democratic-majority State Supreme Court redrew the commonwealth's congressional map after lengthy litigation and claims that the Republican-controlled legislature had engaged in gerrymandering. That November, Democrat Conor Lamb won election to represent the newly-fashioned 17th district, defeating GOP incumbent Keith Rothfus.  This year, Lamb is being challenged by Republican Sean Parnell, a military veteran who has been endorsed by Trump.  CNN'S JAKE TAPPER PESTERED GOP HOUSE CANDIDATE PARNELL FOR STATEMENT DISMISSING SCANDALOUS DM: SOURCE "I didn't like the way Lamb has been following [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi around so much," said Smokey Mackey, a regular at a...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Ravens head coach John Harbaugh was seen on TV during Monday night’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs with his mask lowered below his mouth. After tight end Nick Boyle was flagged for tripping, the furious head coach took off his face mask to yell in the referee’s face. Unfortunately for Harbaugh, the confrontation was caught on camera. The referee was still wearing his mask. Harbaugh said he and the team are trying their best, wearing masks on the practice field, in meetings and on the sidelines. “To think in a three-hour competitive environment, you know, especially when you’re yelling, that your mask isn’t gonna fall down or whatever for five or ten seconds, so I think that’d be, I don’t think anybody could be held to that standard,” he said. Several NFL coaches were fined last week for violating the league’s face mask policy for coronavirus....

    ANTHONY JOSHUA could be forced to face Kubrat Pulev behind closed doors or even abroad. Promoter Eddie Hearn had hoped to stage the mandatory title fight at the O2 Arena in front of a reduced crowd at the end of the year. 2Anthony Joshua could be forced to face Kubrat Pulev behind closed doors or even abroadCredit: AFP or licensors But after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced fans will no longer be permitted to attend pilot events this weekend, after a rise in Covid cases, Hearn's masterplan took a hit.

And while being ruled out of fighting at Hearn's Matchroom 'Fight Camp' due to winter weather, taking the show on the road or in private have emerged as likely options. Hearn told The Mail: "There’s a very strong chance that...
