Worse News: Operation Kakogoliro: Ugandan Expendables!!!

In a lot of ways Expendables successfully rekindled people’s love for old- school action flicks and we are seeing a bigger and bigger tidal waves of EX inspired films like Asylum’s female mercenaries riff Mercenaries and recent Mark Dacascos’s directing debut Showdown in Manila (with Casper Van Dien , Matthias Hues, Cary Tagawa and Olivier Gruner) but the newest one is perhaps the most intriguing.

Dacascos and company, coming soon!

Coming straight from the slums of Wakaliwood, famed no- budget action director Isaac Nabwana is presenting his grandest opus to date. Combining all the the action stars of Uganda (not that many I know) into one place Operation Kakogoliro aka Ugandan Expendables promises all the kicks, punches, gunshots and explosions we can handle.


Also, IGG is trying to seriously step up production values so he made a Kickstarter and Patreon page for Ramon Film Production. Campaign is of course a success and we can expect too more additional movies too- Tebaatusasula: EBOLA (the sequel to the original Wakaliwood hit) and Eaten Alive In Uganda ( their foray into Canibal genre).

Tyrann Mathieu Agrees to 1-Year Contract with Houston Texans

Veteran safety Tyrann Mathieu agreed Friday to a one-year deal with the Houston Texans, the team announced.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported the deal.Schefter added the deal is worth $7 million.

The Arizona Cardinals released Mathieu on March 14 after he declined to accept a pay cut for the 2018 season.

According to Pro Football Talk’s Steve Palazzolo, Mathieu allowed opposing quarterbacks to have a passer rating of 130.2 in 2016 and 91.6 in 2017.During his All-Pro season, he allowed a passer rating of only 70.3.

On Thursday, Palazzolo argued Mathieu can once again be a dynamic playmaker on defense if he’s utilized in the right way:

He can affect the game at all levels of the field, though there should be Jason Motte Youth jersey some concern that his coverage grades have declined over the last two seasons. Mathieu can be had when matched up against good slot receivers in man coverage, so the best bet to maximizing his value is tapping into the versatility.

Alongside the video, BSO’s Robert Littal added, A bottle girl at the Gold Room confirms Beckham was there and states the fight was broken up quickly, a couple of people were thrown out, but cops were not called to the scene. She went on to say Beckham stayed at the club after the mini brawl and had a good night going forward.

But an unnamed source disputed that Beckham wasn’t even in the city of Atlanta.

This is 100 percent not Odell. He was not and is not in Atlanta, the source told Leonard. He has not even been in the state of Georgia recently. The people who falsely posted and reported this will be hearing from his lawyers.

Even if he鈥檚 not running the 4.5-second 40-yard dash time he was as a rookie, his ability to plow through arm tackles and drive back linebackers makes him a valuable weapon.

MLB free agents: Unsigned players will have training camp in Florida, report says

Unsigned MLB free agents will have the opportunity to train in Florida at a camp staged by the players union beginning Wednesday at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., The Athletic reported, citing unidentified sources.
Men's Nike Dallas Cowboys #41 Keith Smith Elite White NFL Jersey
Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to camps in Florida and Arizona next week, but an Womens Trae Waynes Jersey unusually slow market this offseason has left many free agents without teams.

Iowa native and University of Iowa graduate Follow on Twitter Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment Tom Benson, owner of the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and NBA’s New Orleans Pelicans , died Thursday in New Orleans with his wife at his side, the teams announced.

He was 90.

Benson was one of only three owners of both an NFL and NBA franchise at the time of his death.

He was widely credited with keeping both teams in his native New Orleans when their futures were in doubt, first when he purchased the Saints in 1985, and then when he purchased the former New Orleans Hornets in 2012.

Game Kids Clint Boling Jersey The Rams traded a starting cornerback and a second-round pick in order to drag Sammy Watkins out of Buffalo before the 2017 season. Less than a year later, the free agent wide receiver is joining the Chiefs.

The Rams could have held on to Watkins with the franchise tag. The team opted instead to shore up the defense by tagging Lamarcus Joyner. Now Watkins will start over again in Kansas City. It’s a three-year deal worth $48 million, with $30 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

What does Watkins bring to the Chiefs?

The interior will take priority because the Giants are tired of ineffective power run blocking.

The Giants can think about re-signing Pugh or Richburg, but they also can’t ignore the potential for open-market upgrades for Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

It’s easy to connect the dots with Gettleman and Shula, with the Giants getting aggressive in going after the top free-agent offensive lineman, Panthers left guard Andrew Norwell. He would cost them about $12 million per season. That’s doable and highly desirable for both sides.

The thought was this could go either way under new coach Jon Gruden. So far, there are positive vibes that Beast Mode will remain in Oakland for his age-32 season after a productive finish to 2017.

The Lions are keeping Ezekiel Ansah with the franchise tag, but they still need to upgrade the edge pass rush for new coach Matt Patricia and coordinator Paul Pasqualoni. Davenport could have the same situational impact as the Eagles’ Derek Barnett did as a rookie.

They’re used to catering to a mobile QB in Tyrod Taylor. Even with Taylor now in Cleveland, as a 2017 playoff team, the Bills’ recent offensive history should make them feel more comfortable than other teams with Jackson. Their offensive future is in the hands of Brian Daboll, who just worked with the super-athletic duo of Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa at Alabama. The line and the running game are still there, and the additional draft pick gives Buffalo an opportunity to pair Jackson with a fellow rookie wideout. It also gives the Bills a chance to slide up if needed to take Jackson.

Consider those four teams the ideal draft wheelhouse for Jackson. There’s also a chance he falls into the purview of the Saints (No. 27), Steelers (No. 28), Jaguars (No. 29) and, yes, the Patriots (No. 31).

Mike Clevinger earns Indians rotation spot; Danny Salazar to start season on DL

The Indians boast one of the deepest rotations in MLB, and 27-year-old Mike Clevinger earned his spot Monday after facing a stacked Dodgers lineup in spring training.

“As we stand right now, he’s going to be in the rotation,” manager Terry Francona said of Clevinger, via Cleveland.com.

Last season, Clevinger made 21 starts, owning a 12-6 record with a 3.11 ERA and 137 strikeouts in 121 2/3 innings. Clevinger moved to the bullpen during the postseason, but was always expected to start during the regular season.

The values for Seager and Turner are much more in concert with each other in regard to DRS and UZR, though Cabrera paints a polarizing picture defensively.

Cabrera’s differences could be explained by the fact that DRS calculates the penalties and credits for batted balls that multiple fielders can make a play on differently from UZR.

Those relievers include a legion of young talent, such as Anthony Banda, Yonny Chirinos, Jose De Leon, Chih-Wei Hu, Andrew Kittredge, Austin Pruitt, Ryan Yarbrough, and Hunter Wood, as well as veteran Matt Andriese.

Manager Kevin Cash said the team will use this system throughout April and early May, when there are a lot of off days. However, he said the Rays will use that time as a testing period to see if the four-man rotation will work for the entire season.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia knows about the minor sprain in newly acquired pitcher/hitter Shohei Ohtani’s elbow, but he is not concerned.

“No restrictions with Shohei,” Scioscia told reporters Wednesday at baseball’s winter meetings. “The only understanding we have is really just something that’s behind him. There’s no concern, and there’s no restrictions. He’ll be full go in spring training.”

Watch the all-time best Dunk Contest throw-downs

The NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest has gotten better in recent years, but it used to be awesome, featuring not just All-Stars but superstars.

Way back before the All-Star event was filled with 11th men and no-name rookies, the most athletic stars in the NBA used to actually compete, and it was righteous.

Here is a rundown of the best individual dunks in the contest’s history. (Spoiler alert: There are none from the past five years.)

This is the dunk. When I hear the phrase “slam dunk,” it’s Vince Carter dangling on the rim like it’s his squaredance partner that immediately comes to mind. This is just an ultimate display of physical skill and creativty. Who thinks to do that?

There are plenty of things people can criticize Dwight Howard for, but creativity isn’t one of them. In 2009, Howard took advantage of the “getting props approved” rule, bringing in a 12-foot rim, Superman cape and phonebooth for him to change from Clark Kent to the Man of Steel. He makes leaping to the insanely high basket look like a cakewalk, only leaving a desire for him to have gone even higher.

Booker scored 31 points with 10 assists before leaving the game in obvious pain. He will reportedly have X-rays on his ribs and hip areas to determine the exact injury.

Booker now has 16 games with at least 30 points this season, but the Suns are only 8-8 in those games. After being snubbed from this year’s All-Star game, Booker moved to point guard, leading the Suns’ young offensive attack. A natural shooter, Booker has dealt with the switch well, but the Suns are just 3-9 this month.

You can choose to lock lineups either on a weekly basis or on a daily basis. If you choose the weekly setting, your lineups for the week have to be in before the first game on Monday, and this is a good setting if the managers in your league don’t have a lot of time to spend obsessing about their teams throughout the week. It’s a more casual setting. The more hard-core baseball fan typically prefers a daily setting, which requires attention pretty much every day of the MLB calendar. lions_085

Which teams should be next winter’s big spenders?

When it comes to the bottom-line total of wins and losses, rebuilding can be a difficult time for fans, even with the knowledge that it’s part of a long-term plan for future success. The Houston Astros and Chicago Cubs have their forever-flags, but Houston did see attendance drop from 3.1 million in 2004 to 1.6 million in 2012 while even the attendance of the Wrigley Faithful has had its ups and downs, dropping below three million in 2012-2015. But coming out of that rebuild? That’s an exciting time for a team and for fans, the team shifting toward prioritizing current wins rather than future ones.

“Whether it’s second week of April, whenever, we’re going to be really happy to have him back,” Francona said, “because that’s a position then that you don’t have to platoon, you just kind of wind him up and let him go play.”

It’s a tough thing to feel when you feel like you’ve got to be perfect, especially kicking .You can’t do it.Hickson, 27, was the 19th overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers 2008 and spent three seasons with the Cavs, peaking 2010 when he averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds.Sponsor: Sen.And it’s easier to stick with guys like him that work hard and ‘t complain about things and ‘t make excuses.A few observations: 1) The weight that Smotrycz and Horford has put looks to have a large part of it be below the waist.

The Warriors did, however, manage to keep from feasting on lobs.When the Kings traded Bernier to Toronto, I can tell you that Ranford and Lombardi and a number of people that Kings front office – who I think you guys believe have a clue about how to win – they were sick to their stomach trading Bernier.These hugs have become a ritual between the two after every win.

Considering those shots represented around half of his shot attempts over the last two seasons, it bodes well for his fit with LeBron James, who functions as the point guard on offense for the Cavaliers. It also helps that Hill has spent most of his career playing alongside an All-Star in the backcourt, such as Paul George in Indiana and Gordon Hayward in Utah. It should make for a much smoother transition than the one we just witnessed with Thomas.

Part of what drew the Celtics to Brown was his desire to learn and grow.

“I don’t know necessarily what to expect in terms of what the crowd will be or the expectations, but I’ve got some interesting ideas and I can’t wait to share them.”

“Obviously, he’s a smart guy and he’s really curious about getting better on the basketball court and a lot of other things,” said Boston coach Brad Stevens. “I’ve really enjoyed spending time around him. I think he’s really thoughtful. I think he’s a guy that wants to continue to grow in every way.

“We’ve talked about — we want guys in here that are growth-oriented and have that mindset. That was clear before we drafted him, just in meeting with him, that he had that.”

“That’s where I thought it went wrong, middle to end of the third,” Bucks coach Joe Prunty said. “The pick-and-roll was really causing us problems … and then on the other end of the floor (the ball) wasn’t moving as freely.”

“It’s unbelievable,” said Cavs forward Larry Nance Jr. “It’ll never … if that ever gets done again, I’ll be shocked. We’re in the presence of something special right now and it’s an incredible accomplishment, so congrats to him, obviously.”

Point guard Jordan Clarkson, a recent addition to the Cavs (along with Nance) who hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:04 remaining in Tuesday’s contest, was asked what he has learned about James in six games with him as a teammate.

Wade had Oliver’s name written on his sneakers, then went out and scored 15 of Miami’s final 17 points as the Heat took down the visiting Philadelphia 76ers 102-101.

Wade’s jumper with 5.9 seconds remaining was the game winner.

Afterward, he reacted to how special the moment was.

“From the standpoint of away from the game of basketball, as I continue saying, just understanding how important we are as professionals,” Wade said. “And for me, it’s just giving whatever I can to people who believe in me, and especially people who were happy about me coming back here [after the trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this month] who embrace me the way that I only can dream of with me coming back home. So just paying some due respect to [Oliver] and his family tonight.”

Wade later posted on social media about the night, singling out both his late agent, Henry Thomas, and Oliver.

Oliver was a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and also was a huge Heat fan. His parents revealed Sunday on the Univision talk show “Al Punto” that their son was buried in his Wade jersey, something not lost on the 12-time All-Star when asked about it Monday.

NFL Network is just airing audio of the game with a scoreboard of the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl is happening! The game is on NBC, complete with the Eagles and Patriots playing football on the network’s airwaves.

NFL Network — known as THE official network of the National Football League — has on a scoreboard and audio of the game. That’s it.

With David Johnson due to return from injury for Arizona, Peterson could be released this offseason, finding himself in the same spot as last year.

The Falcons jumped out to a 28-3 lead in Super Bowl LI. Then New England scored 25 unanswered points to tie things up and send the game to overtime for the first time in Super Bowl history. James White punched in a two-yard touchdown to get the win and spawn a lifetime of 28-3 jokes at the Falcons’ expense.

The longtime Giants quarterback has more title game victories as a starter than anyone in franchise history, derailing the team of the 2000s in the process. Four years of preparation failed to develop the kind of protection the Patriots needed to keep Brady comfortable in the pocket, as the league’s No. 1 and No. 3 ranked offenses were shut down by Giants’ coach Tom Coughlin’s indomitable pass rush.

With the trade deadline having passed in standard leagues, what is the top piece of advice you have for fantasy managers as we enter the stretch run of the season?

Kyle Soppe: The importance of staying active on the waiver wire cannot be overstated, though not in the same crucial way as in the first part of the season. Up until the All-Star Break, your primary mission is to build the best roster possible. While not easy, it’s a reasonably simple concept. However, as we approach the finish line, you are no longer aiming to build the most talented roster but, rather, the one that will perform the best over a short period of time.

While that may sound like splitting hairs, unwise loyalty to a slightly “better” player can doom you. For example, if and when the Rockets lock up a top-two seed in the West, might they curtail the minutes of a player like Eric Gordon? After all, last season was the first time since his rookie campaign that he appeared in at least 65 regular season games. Conversely, should the Pelicans continue to battle for a playoff spot while Darius Miller’s playing time increases, doesn’t it stand to reason that his best production could come when you need it most?jaguars_111-223x223

Super Bowl 2018 streaming: All you need to know for watching Sunday’s game live online, on TV, and radio

All eyes are on Minneapolis this week heading into Super Bowl 52. On Sunday, the New England Patriots take on the Philadelphia Eagles in a rematch of Super Bowl 39. There are plenty of options for viewers to catch the game live when things kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Live streams can be found at NBC Sports, Yahoo! Sports (iOS | Android), and FuboTV.

Still looking for their first Super Bowl title, the Eagles have embraced their underdog identity, and the defense should be a good matchup against Brady. But if they want to lift the Lombardi Trophy, they need Foles to be at his absolute best. Even the smallest mistake could change the game. There’s no margin for error when playing Brady and Belichick, so Doug Pederson and Co. will need a perfect game plan on Sunday.

This year’s game will pit the New England Patriots’ growing dynasty — in search of its sixth NFL championship — against a Philadelphia Eagles team that has never won a Super Bowl. Philadelphia will head into Sunday’s game the same way it has throughout the playoffs — as a significant underdog. New England opened as a 6-point betting favorite to claim another Lombardi Trophy.

That’s because MVP candidate Carson Wentz, the second-year quarterback whose emergence helped the Eagles recognize their true potential, won’t be on the field. The North Dakota State product tore his ACL in Week 14, handing the reins of one of the league’s deepest offenses over to Nick Foles. The former Pro Bowler has had an up-and-down run as the team’s replacement, but he’s peaking at the right time for Philadelphia to make a run — he threw for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the team’s NFC Championship win over the Vikings.

Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda, 80, hospitalized in Bay Area

Hall of Famer Orlando Cepeda was rushed to a Bay Area hospital on Monday night, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

A San Francisco Giants spokeswoman who confirmed Cepeda’s hospitalization to the Chronicle said she had no further information on his condition or the nature of his illness, the newspaper reported.

Cepeda, 80, was an 11-time All-Star first baseman who played 17 seasons for six MLB teams, including the Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves.

As for the Player Rater, Ohtani will become the first player to receive credit for his contributions both as hitter and pitcher. He’ll receive the traditional Player Rater valuation for his pitching statistics — the Rater normalizes stats against what you could reasonably expect from a replacement level player in your league — but because any hitting contributions he provides you would be considered bonus contributions, each of those numbers would be rewarded incrementally.

But now 2017-18 looks like a transition year more than anything, with the bright spots coming from young players such as Nick Schmaltz, Alex DeBrincat, and Vinnie Hinostroza. Here’s a look at some of the factors that have contributed to the Blackhawks’ downfall.

There’s been a lot of debate about the value of Crawford over the years, but the past few months should’ve laid to rest any question about his importance to the Blackhawks. The goaltender has been their best player for the past several seasons, papering over the team’s decline across the rest of its roster.

The same goes for earlier this season, when the Hawks were already displaying many of their flaws, but Crawford was good enough to keep the team in the playoff mix. There’s a real chance that he would’ve been a contender to win the Vezina Trophy had he stayed healthy.

So here’s your answer to the winter’s most pressing question: In ESPN leagues, Ohtani will serve as one player — just as he will be for his Angels — with the ability to be started as either a hitter or pitcher.

In the big picture, plan on Arizona batters losing hits and homers, piggybacked by a drop in runs and RBIs. The change won’t be felt equally but no one is immune; they’ll all suffer. Even Chuck Norris’ exit velocity would drop with the humidor. The silver lining could be an increase in steals, as lower scoring is usually a harbinger for increased running. Even in a still run-friendly Coors Field, pilfers increased after the installation of the humidor.

Given ERA is highly variable, Greinke lines up as a top-15 starter to as high as sixth, depending how you rank the highly skilled but injury risk options like Noah Syndergaard and Stephen Strasburg.
