When your team name is a color, it’s hard to get too creative with what players wear on the field. Which is why the Cleveland Browns have had, basically, the same jersey for decades: Orange helmet, brown home uniforms, white pants. But going into 2015, the Browns have tried to mix things up.
Yesterday, Cleveland unveiled a new set of jerseys — home, away, and a third — that the team will wear this season. The unis are an updated version of the NFL Nike Elite 51 that “respects the past and embraces the future by paying tribute to the city and the fans,” according to Nike. “The uniform incorporates a modern, 21st century Cleveland-centric design inspired by the Dawg Pound, a group that consists of some of the team’s most enthusiastic fans, and influenced by the evolution of the city itself.”
Eric Fehr believes that you should treat others how you would want to be treated – away from the ice, that is.
Fehr loves to frustrate other NHL teams’ top lines as the new checking center for the Washington Capitals. But in his free time, the Canadian teamed up with author Pamela Duncan Edwards to write a children’s book that combats bullying.
In The Bulliest Dozer, Bo Dozer becomes the “mean machine” at Ms. Crane’s Academy for Little Machines when he is unable to ice skate for a holiday concert on ice. He quickly learns, though, that bullying is something he shouldn’t do. Bo and his machine friends – like Lofty Forklift and Whippy Weedwacker – learn how bullying makes others feel and the importance of friendship.
Fehr recently spoke to SI Kids about the writing process, his favorite parts of being an author, and how his own tight-knit team plans to handle the coming NHL playoffs.
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Jordan Spieth got more than redemption and a green jacket Sunday. He took his place among the best in the game with a Masters victory for the ages.
One year after Spieth lost a bid to become the youngest Masters champion, the 21-year-old Texan turned in one of the most dominant wins ever at Augusta National. He never let anyone get closer to him than three shots after his record start. He never gave anyone much hope on Sunday.
Spieth closed with a 2-under 70, missing a 5-foot par putt on the final hole that would have set yet another record. Instead, he tied the score set by Tiger Woods in 1997 at 18-under 270.
"This was the ultimate goal in my golf life," Spieth said.
BOSTON (AP) — Providence defenseman Tom Parisi thought he was just dumping the puck in from the red line so the Friars could get some fresh skaters on the ice.
Boston University goalie Matt O'Connor thought he had it. Easy.
But after the puck fluttered into his glove, more a blooper than a line drive, O'Connor lost track of it. He opened his hand, the puck dropped below him, and as the BU junior scooted back to cover the net, he kicked it in for the tying score.
"I go back to the bench and guys are saying, 'That went in,'" Parisi said. "I don't even know what to say. I was stunned. The second that went in, I knew we had it."
Last week, I had the chance of a lifetime and watched the Sweet 16 and the Elite Eight games at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. But here’s the kicker: I also got to go behind the scenes!
As a member of the media, I saw firsthand how the press covers these games, where they sit, and how they experience matchups differently than normal spectators.
Here are 10 things I experienced while covering the tournament games.
The organization TGA — which stand for Teach, Grow, Achieve — runs after-school golf and tennis programs across the country for kids in grades Pre K-8. The program started in 2003 when Joshua Jacobs wanted to teach golf to underprivileged and special needs kids. The program began in Southern California, and is now in 2,600 schools across the country with more than 280,000 kids participating. TGA also offers a similar program for tennis.
Recently, I joined a golf class in Dallas. As a non-golfer, I fit right in with the eight other beginners in his class. We were put in four groups, each going to a different station. Mine went from chipping to long drive to putting to agility drills.
The challenge for Sony with MLB 15 The Show was to make a perfect game even more perfect. Believe it or not, Sony succeeded.
Most notable this year: You can pull and push your hits with the left control stick. Bottom of the ninth and down by a run with the righthanded Yasiel Puig at the plate? Swing early, pull the ball towards the leftfield wall, and get ready to slow-trot the bases while the crowd roars.
